A Free, Full Bento Mesh Head from Genus Project!

Free Genus Strong Head

Hey Fab Free! I have the most exciting news to share with all of you! Genus Project is giving away a completely free Genus head! The head is a full bento, BOM head which is also compatible with Genus appliers and Omega appliers. I will be showing you how to get the head, some basics on how to get started and some free skins, makeup and eyes you can pair with the head successfully. For those of you who need a mesh head for the first time or wanted a Genus head, now is the time to jump at the opportunity!

How to get the Head

When I opened my SL notices this morning I was truly stunned and amazed that Genus Project has released a new free head as a gift. I ran to my computer and grabbed the head as soon as I could! It was super exciting and it made me happy. The head is a strand of Genus’ Strong Head type, so it is more mature looking.

Here are some easy steps on how to grab the head:

  1.  Join the Genus Project Free Group. Copy and paste this join group URI into your SL chat or nearby chat: secondlife:///app/group/b153906f-38dd-0dd6-d327-345bef9f446e/about
  2. Open up the Notices in the Group info tab
  3.  Scroll down to the notice called “Support from the Genus Project Team” and accept the attached object. The object is called “GENUS Project – Genus Head – Strong Face GIFT001 – Mocap”

You can also grab the head at the mainstore, although it will be packed and hard to get in. You can grab a free BOM activator HUD and some free skins at the store as well.

Skin Hunt at Insol

There is a Stay at Home/ Quarantine themed hunt going on at Insol right now, and they have some 1L Genus head appliers as some of the hunt prizes. I am wearing the Mila skin in the Milk skintone, one of the hunt prizes, and I also grabbed the free Insol body appliers while I was there. These hunt gifts will allow you to use appliers so you won’t even need to try BOM yet if you aren’t ready to. Each skin on the hunt is 1 L only, and the body appliers are free. The body appliers aren’t hunt items; just click the free body appliers near the entrance of the store.

Need some makeup for your new head?

I also added some Genus makeup onto the Strong head. I selected some basic ones that are good to start out with on the Marketplace. This everyday lip balm pack from Ottilie is currently on promotion for 1L, which includes genus appliers, BOM and other head appliers. I also found an  eyeshadow from Pout! which is available as a gift in their marketplace store called Vibez Eyshadow which is 1 L only as well.  These shadows come in some basic colours to start you out. To top it off, I purchased a pair of eyes from Myria for 1 L which contain Genus applier eyes in blue, green and brown.

Now we’re all set! I used my own custom shape, but there are also shapes for the head available for free at Jinx/Kumio’s mainstore and on the marketplace.

Have fun playing with your new free Genus head, Fab Free!

Boho Steals

Boho

Hey Fab Free! How you all doing? Keeping inside has gotten me in a more creative mood and I decided to express myself with a few free gifts, dollarbies and 45 L finds! Together, these create a really cute artsy or boho look. Watch out my friends- this post is a long one but this whole look is made up of deals all under our Fab Free 75L limit!

Ari Pari- Scala Tin/Yang Event

The Dress and Anklet I have on is from Ari-Pari. They have a little sale going on at their store which is connected to the Scala Yin/Yang Event.  I got this dress for only 45L, and the anklet is free (a Yin/Yang gift), which you can wear on both feet. Both items have a colour hud which match each other. These items will be available through the weekend. I love this outfit! There are also a bunch of free gifts and cheap hunts going on at Ari-Pari, so check those out while you visit the store!

This Little Side Bag

I picked up this straw shoulder bag from S@bbia as a free group gift. It’s really well made and it’s super cute! It goes perfect with this boho look.

Anyone Love Gustav Klimt?

One of my favourite artists is Gustav Klimt, a 20th-century modernist. Naturally, I loved this necklace from Luminesse! I grabbed the Gustave pendant at the Wash, which only costs 3L. They have a bunch of other 3-10 L steals in their booth as well as free gifts! The Wash Event is open until April 15th, so you still have time to grab all the cheap deals and gifts!

Mila Free Genus Applier!

I know some of you likely saw this skin offer on Fab Finds recently, but I am currently wearing the free head applier from Neomenia in case you were wondering! It is a head applier called Mila for Genus heads. Simply join their free group to grab this lovely gift. To match the head to your body, you will need to purchase body appliers from Pume C, or grab the body appliers as a group gifts if you are already in their group (PumeC has a 399 L join fee).

The “Shaza” Updo

I know you all love free hair, and this hair I have on is a current group gift from EscalateD. I love the detail of the braids at the back of Shaza. It has a huge colour hud and you can change the hair to natural or unnatural tones, and even split the hair colour down the middle and add highlights. The EscalteD group costs 99L to join. As a VIP member you get a bunch of benefits including group gifts, lucky boards, weekly raffles and a 15% discount from the store. They have a crazy number of gift hairs you can get by being part of their VIP group (plus an advent calendar at Christmas every year).

Witchy Heels

Finally, these “witch queen” heels fatpack are from KC Couture which you can get as a Lucky Board prize. To access their LBs, you will be need to be a member of their group which costs 25L to join.

Coming soon to Fab Free!

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

Dreams!

Dreams!

Hey Fab Free! I have a really exciting announcement! It is Dreams‘ 4th year anniversary and to celebrate they have a 500 Linden gift card available until March 31st! They also have two MASSIVE wall of group gifts- a variety of items for men and women in terms of clothing and there is also a bunch of eyes, eyelash appliers, shapes and other goodies in the mix! These offers are available to Dreams VIP group members, which costs only 50 Linden to join. You essentially get everything I am wearing plus 58+ more gifts for the low price of 50 L.

Tokio

I feel so spoiled after my shopping spree at Dreams! I absolutely love the boots I bought with my giftcard called Tokio.  These stylish pair include a hud which allows you to change the boots to 30 different plain colours and patterns. I love the animal patterns especially- they are very realistic! I just love boots so these made me happy! After I bought this pair I have a little over 200 Linden left on my card, which would give you enough to buy an outfit accessory or more shoes! I highly recommend it… the value of these boots is SO worth the group join fee! The giftcard is only available until March 31st, so get over their quickly to become a Dreams VIP and grab this 500 Linden gift card present!

Drowning in Group Gifts

I was really impressed by how many group gifts Dreams has for both men and women avatars. I counted 60 group gifts, and there are likely more coming;  this designer is very generous! They also have rolling MM boards and lucky chairs. I am currently wearing the Cali Jean Dress Fatpack and the Glasses Anniversary Fatpack, both which are group gifts from Dreams. They come with colour huds with many options and many of the gifts at Dreams are full fatpacks with huds included which allow you to change the dress and glasses to 8-9 different colours. This is always a huge plus for me- I love being able to customize my look! These items are great and just a small selection of the gifts available at Dreams.

Dreams!

Weekly Dreamy Sales

In addition to the huge number of group gifts, Dreams also does weekly sales. Each week you can buy single items for 45L or 75L, items that are well within the Fab Free limit! Their weekly sales are available Friday- Sunday every week- so check these out! You can also buy full fatpacks at a discounted price during these sales (250 L). The sales are posted in their group notices and you can see them displayed in the weekly sales section of their store.

Support Your Community

Dreams is currently in need of support, and if they aren’t able to make enough sales in the coming months they may need to shut down their in-world store completely due to current economic uncertainty in both worlds. That’s one of the reasons I decided to join the Dreams group- to try to support this store while I still can! If they get more support they will hopefully be able to stay open! Dreams has been so generous in the past four years so I hope the SL community can pull through and give back- even if it is through a small way like joining their low-price group and checking out their (under 75 L) weekly sales.

Thanks for reading and supporting Fab Free!

xx- Caroline

Cyberpunk’d

Cyberpunk'd 1

Ever have that feeling where you’re not sure if you’re awake or dreaming?
-Neo, The Matrix

Hey Fab Free! Stuck at home and need something to do this weekend? The Twisted Cyberpunk hunt will keep you busy and I am showing off more prizes from the hunt. If you are a fan of all things sci-fi, this is the hunt for you!

Twisted

The Twisted hunt has a reputation of being the hardest hunt on the grid, and I would have to agree with that stereotype. Twisted virgin hunters beware! For a list of the locations and side hunts please visited the Twisted Merchant List. The hunt itself is running until Tuesday the 31st so you have all weekend to find the main hunt prizes and conquer those side hunts. The legendary “End Game” (a hunt to do after you reach the last stop) will be open until April 8th! There are 18 prizes to collect at End Game. If you need some help make sure you join the Twisted hunt group, which you can join by copying this join code into your SL chat: secondlife:///app/group/73770da7-7d71-a54e-6e86-60a3e9281e07/about

As always, all of the twisted hunt prizes, side hunts and end game prizes are free (0 L). 

The Goods

I am showing off some of my favourite prizes that I’ve hunted so far. The outfit I am wearing- including the boots, top, skirt, and sleeves- are all prizes in the side hunt at QE Designs. Click the Twisted easels at each location for instructions on how to do the side hunts at each store!

Cyberpunk'd 2

I am also wearing this amazing collar from Neverwish. I just love it and it glows in the dark! This is their main hunt prize, but there are 6 additional collars to collect in total at Neverwish‘s side hunt in a variety of different colours. My hand cuffs also glow in the dark and are animated. These are one of the prizes at the first location of the hunt, Secrets of Gaia

On top of this free group gift skin from Ritual, Lyari, I am wearing the Binary Matrix Tattoo in Turquoise from Fallen Gods, another Twisted prize. It looks like a barcode and if very sci-fi-esque!

Have fun this weekend doing the Cyberpunk Twisted hunt! Make sure you check out these past posts from Juli and Pru who blogged other prizes from the hunt too!

Happy Hunting,

xx

Wicked

Steam Hunt 1

Hello Faboulouses! I don’t know if any of you readers are familiar with the book and musical Wicked, but this post was based on it. The novel’s protagonist, called Elphaba, is based on the wicked witch from the Wizard of Oz. Now I look just like her- witchy green skin and all- except I’m in steampunk attire too! I’ll be showing off this green skin 75 L promo, some more freebies from the steam hunt and a free hair in this post. Buckle up; this is a long one!

More Steam Hunting

I finished the Steam Hunt IV, and this is an outfit I came up with using the goodies from the hunt! I am featuring the free hunt prizes from Razmataz, Prism Designs, Dragon Lady’s Closet, Adele Arts, Pixel Box, Destiny’s Designs, and Sweet Revolutions. The STEAM XV’s grid-wide hunt is free and going on until March 31st- so get out there hunting to get these cool finds!

First off- my outfit is the prize from Destiny’s Designs. The top is a system top I have applied using bakes on mesh (BOM), and the skirt comes in fitmesh and mesh standard sizes (S-XL) which will fit a variety of mesh avatars with some help from your alpha hud. The lantern I am holding is one of five prizes from Pixel Box on the hunt. I also used one of the “Steampunk poses” from Razmataz in this shot.

The gate in behind me is the prize from Sweet Revolutions– it can be rezzed anywhere and be used for landscaping or sim-building- how cool is that!

Steam Hunt 2/Ritual Skin

This dashing hat, which includes a top hat for men as well, is the prize from Dragon Lady’s Closet and you can find these chic boots from the prize box from Prism Designs. Underneath my skirt, I am wearing some lovely omega applier tights which are in the hunt gift from Adele Arts.

Estha & Osha

I stumbled across a promo at Ritual Skins right now, where you can get 2 skins for the low price of 75 Linden. I am currently wearing the BOM version of the skin, but it also comes with a number of head appliers, body appliers, ear appliers and omega if you haven’t switched over to BOM yet. The skin comes in 2 shades: Estha and Osha, and you can wear the skin with freckles, without freckles and with black or white brows. I am currently wearing Estha. The skin can be worn as part of a fantasy outfit and the duo even includes elf or faerie ears. The shade of both skins is green, and it’s really beautiful. It reminds me of the character Elphaba from the book and musical Wicked, which I love. This green skin duo will be 75L until Midnight SLT on Friday, March 27th. As far as I know, there will be a weekly promo at Ritual for this prize so keep an eye out- especially if you love fantasy skins.

Head Appliers Included

  •  LAQ
  • Genus
  • Lelutka
  • Catwa
  • Omega

Body Appliers Included

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Tonic

  • V-Tech
  • AMD Bump

Ear Appliers Included

Green Locks

It isn’t easy being green, especially when you don’t have much hair to match your own skin in your inventory. Luckily Firelight! still has their free group gift out from March 2019 which is a beautiful long and green hairstyle for women. There’s a whole bunch of other gifts to grab while you’re there too! There’s even a brand new green hairstyle to match this skin!

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!
