Ho Ho Ho… Go BENTO (for 40L or Less!)

Ho Ho Ho... Go BENTO (for 40L or Less!)

Ladies, have you been wanting to “go BENTO,” but haven’t had enough Lindens to spare? Well, now you can do it for the price of FREE! That’s right: a complete BENTO-enabled avatar that’s absolutely FREE. Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada. 😀

Meet Jenny

There are some truly amazing gifts to be found on the Women Only Hunt 4 (WOH4) trail, and this one is no exception. Altamura Design has set out a complete Bento-enabled avatar as their gift.

Jenny includes a body with Bento-enabled hands and head, as well as the following features:

  • 1 skin tone with eyebrows
  • 3 alpha sections (macro, mid, micro) with many cuts
  • 3 shapes of feet: flat, medium, high
  • Eyelashes
  • Hairbase
  • “BLABLA” Bento gesture to talk

A few more things to note about this body/head:

  • Jenny is NOT Omega compatible. You cannot use Omega System skins, nails, tattoos, etc., from other designers.
  • If you want to wear a different head (as I’m doing above), you can. Simply alpha out the Jenny head with the included HUD and add the new head.
  • The mid and high feet are smaller than other mesh body feet. However, I found that many shoes sized for Belleza feet seem to fit reasonably well. The flat feet can be resized using the sliders in your appearance editor.
  • The head does not come with eyes (or if it does, I could not find them). You will need to wear a third-party mesh or system eyes.
  • An AO that cycles Bento hand motions is included, but a static hand poser is not. You can pose Jenny’s hands using a third-party Bento pose or HUD.
  • The Altamura website hints that people who have this gift will be receiving a “great surprise.” I have no idea what that means, but an announcement will be made soon in their in-world group. 🙂

To get this gift, all you have to do is find the WOH4 snowflake in the Altamura mainstore. There are quite a few very obvious decoys, but you should have no problem finding the real snowflake.

Reindeer Antlers and Santa Kittehs

I dressed Jenny up in the Peace on Earth Hunt 10 (POE10) gift from Prism Designs. Staci Holiday Cats includes a blouse, leggings, and the two cute kitties you see playing behind me (above).

Mesh sizes for the blouse and leggings include Fitmesh XS-XL with alpha layers, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink.

UPDATE: There are TWO gifts for the POE Hunt at the Prism Designs store. The gift I’m showing here is by Jezzixa Cazalet. The other gift by Journey can be seen in this post HERE by Astrid. Slightly confusing, but who doesn’t love a twofer? 🙂

Accessories:

  • The Reindeer Headband by Wasabi, Bow Bangle bracelet by BREATHE, and my pose by An Lar Poses are all gifts to be found at The Chapter Four. You will need to join The Chapter Four in-world group to grab these (and many more!) gifts.
  • My black pearl Sea Star Earrings are the Day #2 Advent gift for Chop Zuey Couture group members. A matching choker is included. Please note that there are THREE Advent calendars at Chop Zuey: two for members of the in-world group (one calendar for men and one for women), and a third calendar for everyone (both members and non-members). The gift I’m showing today is from the members’ calendar.

Ho Ho Ho... Go BENTO (for 40L or Less!)

3 Heads are Better Than One

If you don’t like the head that comes with Jenny, here are 2 other inexpensive options for you:

  1. Join the Altamura in-world group (40L to join). Then head over to eBento and pick up the Giselle Bento head gift at the Altamura booth. I’m wearing Giselle in photos #1 and #2 above; #1 is with a custom shape I made while playing around with the sliders, and #2 is the shape that comes in the folder. The included shape is actually quite nice, if you don’t feel like making your own.
  2. While you’re at The Chapter Four scooping up all the gifts, be sure to grab the gift from Altamura. Maya (#4 above) is a traditional mesh head that is NOT Bento-enabled. I’m including it here for those of you who want an inexpensive mesh head but are not yet ready to leap into the world of Bento.

More Gifts at Altamura

After joining the Altamura group, be sure to pick up the group gift (piercing) sitting behind the counter across from the Christmas tree. Older gifts are still available on the wall behind the tree.

Also, Altamura has a group-only Advent calendar in the store. All the past days’ gifts are still available, so be sure to pick them all up!

Finally, Altamura is celebrating the first anniversary of their mainstore with a BIG SALE. Group members can save up to 80% on featured products through the 20th of December.

Whew – enjoy! 🙂

Hello Gigi

Snapshot_002Hey here FabFree! I hope you are all enjoying the holiday season.  I had a very nice, quiet Christmas Day at home with family.  It always surprises me how a day of doing lazy things like board games, books, and movies can be so exhausting.  I suppose it doesn’t help that I ate everything in front of me yesterday.  My eyes are always bigger than my stomach… but it was delish!

Love, stop babbling and tell us what’s free!

OK! OK! Over the holidays, Maitreya put out a fab new group gift for their inworld group members!  When you join their free inworld group you can pick up the Gigi Bodycon Dress that you see me wearing today in the Maitreya Lara size.  I didn’t try it on other bodies, so.. it may work on others – I am not sure, but it fits like a glove on Maitreya Lara!  It also includes a texture change HUD that offers a selection of 12 different colours!

I have no idea how I managed to stuff my post holiday butt into this slim fitting dress…  It must be magical.  I think I’ll make a trip through the mall and walk off some of this turkey though because I don’t think my jeans are going to be as forgiving.  Want to join me Carson?

Finishing Touches

Need just a little something to finish off your outfit?

Here are some basic goto accessories and a couple of statement pieces you may want to ad to your wardrobe.

I like to just toss on a tank and some jeans when playing with accessories so I can really focus in on them.

There are group gifts, hunt items, dollarbies and freebies.

From the above pic both my cool fun Whale purse and sunglasses are FREE group gifts and the groups are FREE to join. My purse is from 187, just a sheer fun item sure to turn heads. Plus lots of other to GGs grab while you are there. My sunglasses are from Glamistry but require the SL F & O group tag. No worries you can join the group from the pink sign above the gift.

Finishing Touches
My cute heart hair pins are from the Color me Project which runs til Feb 25th. There are all sorts of FREE gifts there, these came from the Le Coq D’or stall. You can wear just 1 or all 4 since they attach separately. You can edit them into just the right spots in your hair.

Finishing Touches
My 2 hearts necklace is from the Vintage Valentine Hunt and costs 1L. You also have the option to buy it for 25L if you really don’t wanna hunt but its really easy to find so save yourself those lindens. The it! shop is the stop for this prize and the hint is “Well aren’t you the lucky one!”

Finshing touches

I found these cool Gem Wing cuff Earrings by R.icielli for 1L on Marketplace. You get both right and left earrings. You can edit them for a good fit so they will probably even work with mesh ears.

Who doesn’t love free shoes?

Hey fabbies! I think that every girl needs a sexy pair of heels, and Glamistry agrees! Glamistry is a brand spanking new shoe store here in SL, and they promise that for every single pair of shoes they put out, the white pair will be FREE! Their shoes ARE for Slink feet, but even if you don’t yet have the feet, for free, the shoes are definitely worth checking out, just in case you decide to take the plunge!

Snapshot_768

Hyacinth, their first pair of shoes, are absolutely phenominal. Their HUD system allows you to change between shoe colours (if you own more than one!) metal colours, heel colours, etc etc. the more colour shoes you own, the more customization options there are, and I’m all about the options!
