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!

Chill at Home

At Home

Hey Fab Free! Let’s start this week off on a positive note and go through a few free, 1 L and deals you can grab on the grid right now! Today I’ll be showing you a free skirt and necklace, 1 L eyelash appliers, and some free poses. When you’re all done, take these home and enjoy some relaxation time!

This Gorgeous (and Free!) Skirt

First off, I wanted to let you all know about the gorgeous and cute Tia Skirt from Mooh! It is a current freebie for all. To get it simply walk over to the 50% off sales section at Mooh!, and left click the little skirt vendor next to the Haley top sale item. Left click the vendor and pay it 1 L and it will refund you back or click the menu and then “deliver”. It should send for free, no group needed to get this gorgeous skirt. It comes with a colour change HUD. I decided to buy the Haley top too which is the matching top to Tia, which is currently 50% off.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza (Freya, Isis & Venus)
  • Maitreya
  • Slink (Physique & Hourglass)
  • Tonic (Fine & Curvy)
  • Fitmesh ( XXS, XS, S, M, L)

The Necklace

The necklace I have on here is a free hunt prize from Lantian Flox on the Steam Hunt IV. Simply find the hint, look for the gear on the sim and it’s yours! It fits over the sweater I have on nicely! They have lovely jewelry at this store, so take a look around while you’re there.

Kate Pose Set

I have yet another freebie to share from the Pose Fair’s 10th Anniversary Round. I am using a pose from the Kate set from Indigo, and the poses are great for relaxed standing poses for photos. You can get it at the pose fair by joining their free group and heading over to Indigo’s vendor for the duration of the event.

Lashes!

Although you can’t see them really clearly here, I am wearing the 1 L “Delicate Eyelashes” applier from POUT!, which is a new dollarbie on their marketplace store. These are gorgeous and several styles of lashes are included! Get this one in your shopping cart- it’s a steal!

Appliers Included

  • Genus
  • Lelutka
  • Vista
  • Catwa

Stay home and be safe, Fab Free!

A Little bit “Batty”

A Little Bit Batty

Happy Thursday, Fab Free! I am looking a bit batty or like the local weirdo librarian with this strange look I’ve put together. The world is going mad so my look is matching that, I guess! Let’s have fun with it and dig into the free stuff and dollarbies you can get right now; after all, we all need something fun to do with this time off!

The Dress

This dress is ” The Power of Love” gift from Entice. It is their newest group gift which came out only a few weeks ago, and it’s a fatpack which allows you to change the colours of the dress, belt and trim. It reminds me of fashion styles from the early 20th-century. It would be lovely for a formal occasion or just for putting together a unique look like I have done here. The Entice group is free to join and you can get the dress completely free at their main store with their group tag activated.

Dollarbies from S.Lima!

Some of the other almost-free items I have added to this outfit include the hair and glasses dollarbies from S.Lima. The hair is especially a great offer, as it is a full fatpack. The creator was initially going to sell this hair but decided to gift it to all of us for 1 L! How generous! So if you need a pigtails hairstyle, this is a great new dollarbie!

I really love these round glasses with bats/demon wings on them as well. They are so different and really pretty too! You can buy these on S.Lima’s marketplace store for 1 L.

Some Free Jewelery to Top it Off

Pure Poison has a whole lot of free jewelry group gifts at the back if their store in their gacha room. To get these, join their free group and grab all the gifts in the bags. I am currently wearing the Aileen necklace from this loot.

A Discounted Bento Head at the Skin Fair

Although this certainly isn’t free, I thought I would make a short note about the head I have on here as it is currently on a highly discounted price at the Skinfair. LOGO‘s “Josie Bento Head” is on sale for 999 Linden and that includes the head and all of LOGO‘s customization and animation huds which you can use with all of their other heads and future releases. These head bundles are normally priced at 3,499, so it’s a great deal. LOGO does put heads on sale occasionally so having these huds may even be useful in the future! You can pick up Josie at the skin fair until March 29th.

Harmonious

Harmonious

Happy Humpday, Fab Free! I bring you news which will hopefully ease the “hump” of today, as I have something special to help cheer you up! My post today is going to cover a huge 1 L marketplace sale going on right now at Harmonia. As I mentioned in previous posts, I do love dollarbie sales… they are so cheap and effortless! Let’s dig into the details about this one!

Harmonia‘s Anniversary

It is Harmonia‘s Anniversary, and to celebrate they have organized a massive, limited quantities sale. Each item is a single colour or patterned clothing item- if you peruse their marketplace store you will find a variety of dresses, bathing suits, jumpsuits, tops and more. I hope you find something you just need or love! I am wearing the Emerald Merci dress from the sale right now, and loving it!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza (Freya)
  • Maitreya
  • Slink (Physique & Hourglass)

While Quantities Last

The sale at Harmonia is unique and I have not seen a sale quite like it before. The sale is based on limited quantities and it will continue until items last.  There is a limited number of 100-350 copies per item, and when every item has sold out, the sale ends- and all items will return to regular price. Normally, these items sell at 110 Linden each- so at 1 L each this is a serious steal! 

Grab them while you can!

As this sale is limited quantity, you will want to be sure to grab all these 1 L finds as soon as possible! The sale has been going on for a few days now, but there are still 65 items left all sized for different body sizes. Some items are Maitreya exclusives, where others are sized for multiple mesh bodies (Slink, Belleza, etc.). Simply read the item description to confirm if the item you want comes in your size prior to purchase. There’s even an item for men hidden in there!

Well that’s it, Fab Free! Thank so much for reading and I hope that you run over to Harmonia and snatch up these amazing dollarbies while they’re still available!

Cheers,
xxx

Now I’m Gone

Now I'm Gone

You’ve got three days, FabFree. Three days left to hunt down the prizes for the Menstuff Hunt. This is one of the few Men’s items only hunts in Second Life. It’s wildly successful and well attended … maybe some other Hunt organizers will take note and make their own ‘masculine’ hunts.

She wants to steal my jacket

There are a lot of great prizes this year but this has to be one of my favorites. This is the “Skulls” Jacket and tee set from Illustrious. You can pick this up for just 1L when you find the tuxedo shirt shaped prize object. However… the Hunt ends in just three days. So get in gear and hunt some great prizes down.

Sizes Included

  • Aiden
  • Belleza – Jake
  • Ocacin – Gamit
  • Onupup
  • Signature

Hearts and Flowers

Hearts and Flowers

We are creeping closer to Valentine’s Day! All the hunts are full of red and pink and hearts galore! I figure… why fight it? So I dived into the holiday a bit early with the Cupid’s Crush Hunt!

Hearts Everywhere

I am in love with this cute cropped Tee from Mara’s Mysteries. This is the “Valentine Hearts Tee” and you can pick it up for just 2L and a little searching. The tee comes with a HUD to change the colors of both the hearts and the background to one of ten pre-set selections. The tee fits like a dream and is really well made. I see it having a long stay in my wardrobe!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Blue Hearts Beat as One

Blue Hearts Beat as One

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I think there’s some unspoken rule that when dating someone you must at some point wear one of their shirts. I’ve certainly stolen borrowed Blue’s shirts before. This time I claimed his pajama shirt; though honestly I don’t think it bothered him at all. These royal blue heart print pajamas are the his and hers Sin City 3 hunt prize at The Sissy Bar.

The Sin City 3 Hunt has multiple paths. These prizes are the male and female path prizes at The Sissy Bar priced at 1 linden each. Both the men’s pajama pants and the women’s pajama top come in several sizes. There is also an alpha layer and standard mesh sizes so these dollarbie hunt gifts are suitable for classic non-mesh avatars.

Men’s Sizes Included: Classic Mesh (s-XL) + Alpha Layer, Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza, Gianni, Slink, TMP
Women’s Sizes Included: Classica Mesh (xs-XL) + Alpha Layer, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), TMP, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Ebody, Maitreya Lara

Men’s Prize Hint “Hiding next to a gas pump trying to copy it so I can blend in.”

Women’s Prize Hint“Hiding behind the guardian bells so I feel safe.”

Those who wander

Those who wander

Do you guys ever get on the Grid and just wander? Pick a random place to start… maybe you saw a photo location you liked and popped over to see… Then it led you somewhere else and further. That’s what I did today. Just went for a wander to see the sights. I am constantly amazed at the beauty of some of the SIMs. I spent some time at Sparrow Springs and just relaxed watching the world go by.  A big part of my enjpyment today was the comfy casual “walk about” clothes I picked up for almost free.

Long and Short

My new Capris are from Graffitiwear and I picked them up for free on the Lucky Board. These are the ‘Free Spirit’ capris and they come with a HUD for a ton of color and pattern choices too. You do need to be a group member to play the Lucky Board but the group is only 25L to join and it’s well worth it for the Boards and the gifts.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Eve – Pupy, Slim
  • FitMesh – XXS – L
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

Stopping to smell the roses

My new floral tank is an “almost free” goodie as well. This is the “Raindrops on Roses” tee from the Bold Llama Tee Shirt Company. It’s only 1L as part of the ‘Raindrops on Roses’ Hunt. There is also a similar tank for the Hunt priced at 25L since this Hunt has two tracks of prizes.

Sizes Included

  • Bellza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Mesh – XS – XL
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic-Curvy, Fine

I may be weird, but I love a dollarbie sale…

Jellyroll 1 L Marketplace Sale!

Hey Fab Free! I hope you’re having a fabulous week. I have been pretty productive for the last few days, so I decided to relax by getting cozy in bed with some great dollarbies I found by Jellyroll, which are on sale in their marketplace store right now.

Jellyroll’s 1 L Sale

Jellyroll closed their in-world store about a year ago this month, but the owner has graciously put up some of their creations for 1 L only in their marketplace store. Their creations are beautiful, so I naturally snatched up all the dollarbies I could find on there! You can get a range of products, including whole fatpacks of hair, clothing and shoes. I am not sure how long this sale will be on for, so buy these up before it’s over!

Pyjama Princess

The outfit I put together here is a combination of three items from Jellyroll: a pyjama nighty called “Sultry Nights PJs”, the “Princess Heels” and a cute shoulder-length haircut called “Alice”. All three items cost only 1 L each and they are all fatpacks which come with colour huds. The hair fatpacks in particular have huge customization, as reds, greyscales, blondes, brunettes and more huds are included.

I just love these PJs as they come with such witty slogans! This one says: “Me? Weird? Always.” How true. There’s a bunch of other funny and cute sayings on this PJ set, which makes it super fab!

Have fun, Fab free!
