But First, Wine

Anti-Turkey Day

Hello Fab Free, I hope your week has been going well. This girl could use a great big glass of wine and it’s only Wednesday. haha Though I personally do not celebrate Thanksgiving, I am very much thankful for so many things. That is my one take-away from this November holiday. Needless to say I was happy to see some hunt prizes on the Jerky Turkey Hunt that were still perfect for fall but not blaringly Thanksgiving themed. The Jerky Turkey Hunt is a dollarbie hunt that will run from now until Nov. 30th. For this post I hunted down the his and hers hunt prize at Wicked Inc., and the makeup prize at The Little Bat.

Wicked Inc. 

This yellow and orange skull pattern sweater is the Jerky Turkey Hunt prize at Wicked Inc. I liked the skull pattern because it’s different from what you might usually see this time of year. This dollarbie hunt prize comes in female mesh sizes and standard mesh male sizes.

Hunt HintAlthough the guy downstairs thinks he’s classy the one at the top of the stairs that has a classy hat.

Male Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs – XL)
Female Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara

The Little Bat

I’m always interested in makeup, it’s so fun and can be subtle or absolutely transformative. The Little Bat has a set of gothic fall lippies as their Jerky Turkey Hunt prize. I like the black upper lip that fades into a warm autumn color on the lower lip. The set includes 4 rusty autumn lip colors to choose from.

Hunt Hint: Oh deer, is that a turkey feather?!

Included: Omega Applier, BOM Layers

All-Nighter

All-Nighter

I just couldn’t put the book I was reading down. Blue had gone to bed hours ago, at what anyone would have considered a late hour. I had replied that I too would call it a night after just a moment longer. One more page, a chapter, just a bit more.  A moment longer turned into hours later, the once blazing fire in the fireplace now glowing red embers, and the morning sun was hinting over the horizon.

It didn’t help the situation that I had the cozy comfort of the oversized arm chair and a fuzzy warm blanket to keep me content and steadily reading my book. Come to think of it the glass of wine probably contributed to my unintentional all-nighter as well. The chair with props, and table with wine and decadent chocolates are both part of the Monster Mash hunt prize at Kitty Creations. There are several individual and couples poses, many with fun props in this set. You can hunt it down for 1 linden at Kitty Creations. If you’re not in a hunting sort of mood, you can also purchase the set for 25 linden for the duration of the hunt.

Monster Mash Hunt Hints & Locationshttps://funwithhunts.blogspot.com/2020/10/monster-mash-hints-slurls.html

With my quite cozy spot near the fire, and my equally comfortable attire I was left with little ability to resist the allure of finishing my novel. This cute as heck tank top is a free Lucky Letter board prize at Pink Cream Pie. Not only is the witchy graphic cute, with the pastel colors versus the usual dark colors of the season, it references a favorite Halloween movie of mine, Hocus Pocus.  To participate in the Pink Cream Pie Lucky Boards (there are 3 new prizes) you’ll need the group tag. The Pink Cream Pie group has a join fee of 314 linden. There are quite a few group gifts available as well, you’ll find the boards and the group gifts on the second floor.

Ghost Hunting

GHOST Hunting
It’s October. During this month, every bump, creak, and thud you hear seems to make your mind race. All those late night horror movies on the TV don’t make it any better. Have you ever had one of those friends that wants to pull you away from the safety of your home to go out and do some real ghost hunting? Whether it be the old creepy haunted house, run down school, or abandoned hospital. I knew two such people, that during the month of October had to visit at least one haunted place. A few years back they actually dragged me along. To none other then an old abandoned hospital. As we walked around, nothing seemed out of the ordinary to me. Sure a few sounds, maybe a moan, a thud in the distance. Then they dared me to go down to the morgue all by myself.

I was younger and never backed down from a dare. Yes, now that sounds rather idiotic and stupid. Totally something out of one of those horror movies we all watch. This time it was for real, for me anyway. I headed down to the morgue, stopping to make sure the bandanna on my hair was tied tight enough, gotta keep that long then unruly hair outta my eyes. That way I wouldn’t mistake it for some type of ghost in the corner of my eye. I pushed my way through the doors and walked into the morgue, which was a bit cold.  I pulled up my hood, from my smoke skull hoodie around my neck. I looked around, pieces from the ceiling scattered on the floor, a few of the body drawer doors open, and an old gurney against the back double doors. Then WHAM!!! One of the doors to the body drawers slams closed. Then a squeak, the gurney rolls back. I turn my head and there she is. I defensively put up a hand, leg, and scream. Yes…..yes I screamed. For there was a ghostly apparition of a teenage girl standing not just two feet away from me. There I was living a real life horror movie. To which I ran away from as fast as I could.

Mysterie
It’s a good thing for you though. The Horror Movie Hunt it going on the entire Month of October. The Nightmare Spirit hoodie I’m wearing will cost you only 1L. That is if you can find the bloody knife at the store Mystrie. There are two knives hidden at this store. One for the men an another for the ladies. So guys your Hint is Boo!

Sizes Included: Belleza Jake, Signature Geralt/Gianni, Slink Male, TMP Male, Standard Mesh s-L + Alpha Layer

Horror Movie Hunthttps://nefelievents.blogspot.com/p/horror-movies-hunt-applications.html

Kuni
If you like my great mop look of a hairstyle. You can find it at Kuni in five different colours. Kuni is having a free Pumpkin hunt at their store. Their are a total of 15 pumpkins to be found. Which will give you 3 different hairs. 1 hair named Natsumi for the guys which I’m wearing in the picture. You will find 5 pumpkins with this hair in it. That will give you 5 different colour pallettes. The 2 other hairs are for the ladies and the same goes for them. 5 pumpkins for each hair with 5 different colour pallettes in them. You can also buy a 300L Giftcard at Kuni for 1L and buy yourself a hair or two. Since they are having a sale to launch the re-opening of their new store. As for me I’m sticking to watching horror movies from the safety of my couch from now on.

The last time we played, I am pretty sure he took it easy on me. lol This shiny new air hockey table, the cool wall hanging, and the matching rug are all gifts on the Retro Hunt from Tentacle Experiment. Each of the furniture and decor pieces in this set are copy so you can rez multiples.  My tank-top is also a Retro Hunt prize you can find at The Bold Llama. I have to say, I am genuinely digging these bright colors.  The Retro Hunt is a dollarbie hunt and it runs from now until the end of May.

More Bunny Hunts

Hey Fab Free! I have more Bunny hunts to share with you and some free hair! See below for the details!

Evil Bunny Hunt

The Evil Bunny hunt is on right now, so time to get hunting! There is a “good” and “evil” eggs on this hunt, but you can only find two “nice” eggs at Donni’s Dollies for both men and women! This is the ladies prize! The dress is a light green shade. It’s pretty! The prize for men is the Christopher Suit in Grey with a green tie. A preview of the men’s item can be seen on their flickr page. Each prize costs 1 Linden.

The hint for the ladies item is: “All I do is sleep here, could you pet me?”, and for the men, ” Don’t place all of your eggs in one basket!” Good luck hunting, readers!

I hunted my dapper bunny tank top at The Bold Llama, and my cute green purse at Loordes of London.

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!

xx

Enchanted Easter

Enchanted Easter

Hello Fab Free, thanks for being here. My guy Blue and I were talking the other day and he started telling me about a dollarbie hunt a Simply Shelby that had lots of purple, unicorns, crystals, and fanciful things. I didin’t need to hear anything else. Are you kidding me? Unicorns, crystals, and lots of purple? I was in!

There are 12 pink, blue, or yellow Easter eggs hidden around the grounds at Simply Shelby for the Starry Skies Easter Egg Hunt. This hunt will last from now until April 14th.  All the prize eggs are priced at just 1 linden each. In each egg there is a landscaping or décor item that is either Easter or fantasy themed, and most of them include the color purple. With the exception of the flowery grass filling in, everything in the above scene is a dollarbie hunt prize.

Lastly, there are 2 additional shops with their own prizes as part of the Starry Skies Easter Egg Hunt. I’ve included the ad for this hunt below to give you a preview. If you click on the hunt sign at any participating location, you should get a notecard with some hunt information and the landmarks to all 3 participating locations.

Happy Hunting Fab Free!
