Jurassic Worlds

Coming Soon

I am all about the fandoms and blockbuster franchises today. You may remember my rantings about the Peter Pan universe earlier this morning. As it turns out, I am a way bigger nerd and enjoy more fandoms than just Harry Potter, which I have blogged about many times in the past. Well, this posts’ obsession is Jurassic Park! I’m actually going to head out to enjoy the latest Jurassic World: Dominion movie later tonight for the big date night of the week! For some reason, this scene Caroline is in reminds me of that universe, but it’s too bad I didn’t have any scary dinos backing me up. Hopefully, I can do a scary post one day with them, although the way I pictured my SL photography and dinosaurs is that they would look too cute to look like they are ready to eat humans. SL just has a way of making all creatures seem adorable. Anyways… let’s just say my brain is on all things related to Raptors, T-Rexes, and rocky parks with waterfalls because I just had a Jurassic Park movie marathon this week.

Yaina

Ok, enough about dinosaurs! Time to get to the gifts! Faga has this beautiful hair out as a free group gift. You are looking for the “Exclusive Pack Gift” sign under the Yaina hair vendor. Their group is temporarily free to join. It includes a nice little colour hud as well.

Eden

The cute Golden Zebra print “Eden Sandals” I have on are the latest group gift at Starlight Apparel. Just join the ~* Mandilena Creations *~ group for 25L and grab the huge wall of gifts at the store while you’re at it. 

Sizes Included

A Dome for the Ages

The last find I have to share today is what I used to create my scene for my photo today. This is one scene you can create from the skydome by Anna Erotica. You will find it for only 10L on the Marketplace. This is a huge skydome that allows you to change the colours of the sky and ground by touching it, and it is only 11 prims. The item does not have modify permissions, although many of their other products do. I absolutely love this creator. In fact, I live in one of their massive 15 prim “Palm Beach” skyboxes most of the time and it takes up virtually no space in my prim allotment. Their stuff is so low prim and afordable! I love the textures, scenes, and skies in their builds. For example, they have a 1 prim skybox home for only 1L here which is spacious, and it includes full modify permissions. You can find more 75L and under on their Marketplace here. Be warned that this is an adult store, so you will come across adult items in their shop if you explore further, but in this post, I have only linked general-rated items.

Enjoy, FabFree!

Spring Gardening

Spring Gardening

Let me tell you a thing or two about me and gardening.  We don’t get along.  I like the whole “hang out in the garden and admire the fruits of my labour” bit, but everything else isn’t really up my alley.  The dirt, the squirrels who insist on decimating your work, the bugs.  Just… ugh.  Perhaps I need to be a person who has enough money to hire a gardener, so I can go and admire the fruits of THEIR labour!  Ahwell, either way, I’m hanging out in my pristine garden today, and I can categorically state that there is no dirt under my fingernails.  You can decide if that’s a good thing or a bad thing!

The Easter Hunt

There are a lot of hunts going down around the grid right now, seeing as the Easter Egg hunt is literally the reason hunts exist in SL (I am possibly exaggerating a bit here…but unless you’re a pirate, work with me…).  Over at @home and Noveny, they are doing it up in grandiose fashion with a super fun (and totally free) hunt in which each egg contains a really awesome home decor item.  I had such a fun time making my little garden getaway come to life with these free finds.  The catch is, you have to make it happen ASAP because the hunt is only running today and tomorrow.  So get over there!

Flower Power

Of course, all garden lounging requires a new outfit (Does it though, Aline? Sounds fake, but ok…).  I picked up this lovely top by Vagrant (you neeeed to see the strappy back) which is equal parts Spring and sexy.  The Vagrant group is free to join, so you’ll be getting this lovely flowered top for free.  How awesome is that?

Green Drinks Galore

Green Drinks Galore

I’m in the spirit of all things St. Patrick’s Day, I’m heading to the pub for a very green drink.  Is it crème de menthe?  Probably not, that stuff is far too gross.  More likely it’s green Kool-aid… but don’t tell anyone, ok?

Irish Pub

I never cease to be amazed by the generosity and creativity of Kim of Kim’s Kreations.  She’s done it again with this month’s offerings for the FabFree St. Patty’s Day Hunt.  Not only do you get each prize for just 1L… it’s A WHOLE IRISH PUB.  Yeah, exactly – the building, the furniture, the ambiance… everything!  There are 5 prizes to pick up so you can have your own little corner of Eire wherever you go.  I’ve got a shot of the lovely pub exterior for you below!  Thanks Kim!

Back to the Fair

I headed back to Whore Couture Fair, this time in search of a sexy and sassy little outfit to wear to the pub.  Hollipocket was happy to oblige, and provided me with this cute flouncy dress for just 10L.  There are a whole bunch of 10L specials at Whore Couture Fair – each booth has one!  I really like the shiny iridescent quality of this look.  So cute!  Don’t forget that this event is 18+ and features very adult themes.

MakeOver Monday

Hey there my darling No0bs and all Fabulous Folks. Class is in session once again and we have a TON of things to cover tonight. So let’s jump on in.

First, I want to answer a question I received because I think it’s something we all struggle with: Makin’ those Lindens. I have been checking out one of the easiest ways and that is the Fish Hunt Game. You catch fish and then pop to the game’s HQ and turn them in. The biggest thing is it takes forever to make any significate money. But it’s all free and if you have the patience for it then as you fish you get better at it and over time you start to catch more fish and less trash. If you use the Fishing Game to make money, let me hear from you! 

Much like the Fishing, patience is needed for the next “free” money maker: The Money Chairs. I found this one at the Kingbal store. ( Which also has loads of freebies everywhere.)  You only make 1L at a time and only if your letter or a ? comes up. So…. not fun but still totally free. I couldn’t find a list of such chairs or even the “Money Trees” new residents can harvest for their first 30 days. 

I’m going to come out and say… the best way to have L$ is simple to buy it with real currency. The exchange rate is good. One Linden is literally one cent. The minimum purchase order is $2.50 which buys you 600L ( at the current rate) You can set up a payment method as you choose including PayPal. Of course , this is JUST my own personal opinion so take it with a huge grain of salt. 

I want to clear something else up in response to a nasty comment/NC I received in world. The Bloggers here on FabFree are NOT paid. We don’t even get “free stuff” from most designers and creators. We set piggybanks up at our HQ because some folks like to help out their favorite bloggers with our expenses or to say a little “thank you”. We aren’t ‘begging on top of getting all that free stuff’. We do this because we love it.

So let’s jump to the next thing from last week: Housing.  Now Ms Aline had a post a few weeks ago about a community that was offering free housing in exchange for resident who would be VERY active in the community.   I don’t know if that’s still available but it could be a place to start.

What I can recommend for all us penny-pinchers is a SandBox. These are places you are allowed to rezz objects and build free of charge. There are “premium Sandboxes” out there that are pay or only for folks who have a premium account. But many are simply free open places.  You can find empty ones by typing in “Sandbox” to your search.

Pick one, I picked this one at random. Please respect the rules of each sandbox, there will usually be a sign or an automatic NC delivery with rules.

Then, open your World Map. (ctrl + M). In the left lower side you’ll see your “Location”  Use the arrow or manually enter a height. I picked 1500- ish and that seems to be high enough. Get your avatar in ‘fly’ then teleport up.  Take a look around if the sky is empty as far as you can see, you’re in the right place. 

Now, if you’re using FireStorm Viewer simply type ” REZPLAT ” and get a platform. Now you can land and rezz boxes or whatever you need. 

You can even rezz a skybox.  There are a TON of free skyboxes on the MarketPlace for you or go grab this gorgeous “New York Apt Skybox” from AppleFall for free. 

The outside of the skybox sitting on the platform I rezzed

The beautiful inside. You’d never know you were hovering in space.

Each Sandbox has a different time of “return” when it automatically returns everything in the sandbox to it’s owners. So do check to see when the next clean takes place before you rezz out. And , just as a curtesy, when you log out take/delete your items. Leaving trash in the sandbox (or anywhere you may be able to rezz that isn’t yours) is just rude. 

One thing to remember – You can’t set your “Home” to one of these sandboxes. To get around this, make sure you leave Second Life from your platform each time. Then when you come back to log in, log in to “Last Location” and you will pop in at the sandbox. 

Okay, my darlings, that’s it for tonight. I promise next week is “Inventory Control”  It’s a huge subject so I want to spend some time on it.  Have a great week and I’ll see ya on the blog!

One PS….  The Legacy FREE gift Body is still available. I picked up both Alistar and Kery a copy and I love it. It’s BOM ready and has a ton of bells and whistles. I highly recommend it. 

Cheers FabFree!

Dreaming of a White Christmas

Dreaming of a White Christmas

Happy Christmas everyone!  I’ve just nipped away from my RL festivities to make sure I don’t forget all my inworld peeps on this most auspicious of days.  I hope that you’re all enjoying yourselves, however you can, while still being safe and happy and filled with really good food.  I won’t natter incessantly, let’s get to the gifts!

I’m a Pro

Over at Promagic, it’s time for a new FREE subscriber gift!  This really lovely top, skirt and shoes all came free in the box and they’re all so pretty.  All three items come with very extensive HUDs to change the colours and some of the textures too.  You can even change the shade of the applique leaves on the bustier – plus there’s also a hat in the box too if you feel like being a bit jaunty. To get your own, all you have to do is click on the big subscriber sign when you land at Promagic.  Already subscribed but no gift is forthcoming?  Just unsubscribe and resubscribe and it will be sent to you right away (worked for me!).  Yay!

Generous Kim

The very lovely Kim of Kim’s Kreations is always so generous.  She has piles of gifts out at her shop, and they are constantly being switched out for other grand designs.  Today is the last day of her advent calendar (which is free for everyone – just pay 0L!) and inside you’ll find a really gorgeous and extensive set of decor called the Ivory Dreams Flying Skybox.  You can see all the parts right behind me in the photo – a fireplace, chairs, tables, artwork, candles, an ottoman… and even the very cool surrounding skybox that has a floating curtain so you look like you’re hanging out in the breeze.  It’s very striking and so much fun to play around with all the parts to set them up however you like.  If you haven’t picked up the past gifts either – they’re still all out for free, for everyone!  Get over there, don’t miss out on this amazingness – and give Kim your support while you’re at it, she really is a kind, generous soul.

Merry Christmas!  Happy Holidays!  Whatever you celebrate – or if you don’t celebrate at all, I wish you and yours the very best this season.  Thank you all for being here, for sharing the grid with us, and for making us a part of your Second Lives.

Hey gang,

As you know, The Arcade is one of those places I’ve been hitting up this week for goodies.  I’m loving all the fun goodies the designers have brought to this round.

This time, I have another Amitie pose for you, this includes the lights that wrap around you, the pose and the star!  So cute!  I feel so festive!  Amitie is only 50L a play and there are so many fun poses you can win.

My second Arcade goodie is this gorgeous winter themed build I am standing in.  This comes from Celeste, where you can find all sorts of magical bliss.  This was a rare and I just lucked out to get it!  There is also an outdoor gazebo version you can win when you play. (I added the trees) This is also only 50L a play.

Speaking of the trees, these are a free gift from 3D trees which has some lovely landscaping goodies.  They are a free gift and there is no group required.

I know there is just so much going on, you barely know where to turn!  But trust me when I say, you will want to go have a peek at The Arcade.  😉

Merry Jolly Everything!
