To the Lords and Ladies of the Fabulous Realm…

Greetings Oh Fabulous Ones,

druid 1_001

I have just returned from a far away land of Gacha and I come bearing many splendid treasures for you, fine gentle folk.

Okay, imagine I was saying that in a fancy Olde English accent!

The Fantasy Gacha Carnival is open for business and there actually ARE many a splendid offing there. Eighty one designers have come together and set out some very fine fantasy gear for us this November with most offering two or more gachas. The Carnival runs until November 30th so you only have a little time left to get your Medieval on! You can check out the website for a preview here. One of the best things about this Carnival is the ton of men’s items here. Many of the vendors offered both male and female selections or unisex items.

First up is Zenith’s Druid. I love the wooden vines that twist and curl around the upper armor and bracers. Zooming in shows the delicate texture of bark and twigs. The simple linin skirt moves well and sets off the detailed leather works.  I was lucky enough to pull both of the rares on this machine! The branching crown AND the two handed wand. I was thrilled to find a “new to me” hair vendor at the Carnival! I’m wearing Blues’ hair in ‘Grace’
druid coll.

 

Next up is a Ranger outfit from !gO!  I didn’t pull the rare but I was lucky enough to get the jacket and the skirt in the same color and style. !gO!’s booth has both a men’s machine and outfit as well as the girl’s selection. The pose is from Rack Poses and their “priestess” gacha. There are six common poses and one rare couple pose. They all come with the eagle prop! At 50L a play, I grabbed several.  I’m also wearing Little Bones ‘Ranger’ hair in the Landslide pack.

Lastly, I wanted to show you the rest of the Snow Queen set from The Annex.  In addition to the beautiful pearl earrings and chocker, this set has a pair of pearl ‘eye lashes’ and a diadem. There’s also a gorgeous crown but I wasn’t lucky enough to pull it. :(  Maybe next time.  The gown comes in a plethora of colors so I just picked my favorites: Forest, Twilight and Calypso.

I’m also wearing Damselfly’s blowin’ around hair “Gretchen.”  The rare also comes with a set of butterflies woven into the locks. I love the dynamic of the piece. Sure makes for a great picture!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL lets give thanks hunt 2 PICGreetings once again Fabulistas!  It’s time for your Friday Hunt Report and I would normally come up with some pithy comments about all the cool hunts going on right now, but I just got home from a very long drive and I’m BEAT. So… I’ll just let the hunts speak for themselves. Check them out! There are a bunch of fun hunts going on right now.

If you’re new to the sport, hunting is easy. You follow clues to find hunt objects in a kind of scavenger hunt… either in just one store or region, or hopping from region to region. Some are easy, others a bit more challenging, but mostly they’re just plain fun. FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages with tips to help get you started.

So let’s do this hunting thing!  Just poke the names for more information on each hunt.

See you out on the hunt!

Once Upon a Time…

BrothersGrimm1_001

Hello FabFree Folks!

I’ve been on the hunt again! This time I delved into the darker world of fairy tales with the Brothers Grimm Hunt.  This is a 2L per prize hunt and it has some very nifty things.  First up is the mesh Peasant dress from ..elation..  This was a new to me store and I very much enjoyed checking it out. The dress is very well made and moves nicely. I bet it would be perfect for a fantasy RP.  It was the perfect costume to find Potpourri Designs “Poisoned Apple on a Stone Pillar.” The pillar is a great prop for a picture or an RP but it is more than just a prop. It comes in several versions with and without the apple.  Completing the scene is the “Aponi” hair style from EMO-tions. This is one of the several in-store Gachas at the mainstore. I’m wearing the “naturals 3″, a pretty taffy blonde.

One nice thing about this particular Hunt is there are a varity of styles for the prizes. I found the fantasy/medieval dress then found this funky tank top/short dress. This is B-UniQ’s “The Raven”.  Again, so nicely made!  I’m not daring enough to wear it alone so I paired it with these dollarbie black leggings from [Eve n Better] found on the Marketplace.  Topping off my look is the Argrace Welcome gift hair “Minato” which Tiana Omizu and Love Trill  showed us here.

HUNT SL Dirty Turkey HuntGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, November 18th.

The turkeys are still on top of their game this week, with the Dirty Turkey hunt continuing to hold down the top spot. The Jerky Turkey hunt is coming in at number four. So if you like turkeys and all things Thanksgiving, you’re in luck!

There are plenty of other good hunts to go around… 47 of them by today’s count. Those of you who love going hunting should be happy happy campers.

Just a reminder, that these are the 10 most popular viewed hunts over the past 48 hours or so. We don’t know how many people actually start (or finish) any given hunt and this ranking can (and probably will) change in a few hours.

See you out on the hunt!

Sweet Lies and Lumae, make Calle a pretty forest dweller.

Hello again! I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend, so far so good for me! I have another roleplay look for you today, featuring a great find from the L$30 Saturday Sale, and a look at a new, and different, skin from Lumae.

forestwarrior1

I’m going to start with my outfit. All of the pieces I am wearing, which include the mesh skirt and top, leg bands, arm bands and choker, make up the Kipa outfit, in beige, from Sweet Lies. This is one of 3 colour choices for this outfit that is currently a steal at L$30 as part of the L$30 Saturday Sale.

forestwarrior3

Now onto this beauty of a skin from Lumae. This gorgeous face is Star, and you will find her at the current round of Genre, which started today. All skin tones are available for L$75 each, and your pack will include 4 versions, of which I have shown you below. As with all of Lumae’s special skins, you get a whole load of extra’s in the folder, like lash tattoo’s, cleavage tattoo’s and , as I am showing off, a Loud Mouth applier. All other appliers are available back at the main store for a pretty reasonable L$100 for each tone. While the theme for this round is post-apocalyptic, I obviously went with a forest dweller look, but I also get an alien/space vibe from this makeup…the possibilitie are endless :)

forestwarrior2

Well lovelies, that is it for me for the moment. I hope your Saturday rocks, if it is indeed still Saturday for you, and I will see you all later! Until then, TTFN.

HUNT SL Fallen Leaves Autumn HuntWe’re closing in on the Thanksgiving holiday and there are plenty of turkey and fall themed hunts going on. If you like holiday hunts you’ll be in seventh heaven this year. We’re getting new winter and Christmas themed hunts cropping up every day, and come December 1st, we’ll have a lot of them to tell you about. So stay tuned!

Are you saying “bah humbug!” to the holidays? There are plenty of other themes to go around. Just take a look at the list and see. I’m sure you can find a hunt that makes your toes tingle.

What is this hunting thing you ask? Well you follow clues to find hunt objects in a kind of scavenger hunt… either in just one store or region, or hopping from region to region. Some are easy, others a bit more challenging. But I find most, if not all of them, to be great fun. FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages with tips to help get you started.

Saddle up that giant turkey because it’s time to go hunting! Just poke the names for more information on each hunt.

See you out on the hunt!

Arcana

Snapshot_001I love playing dress up and when I saw May’s Souls amazing gacha offering at The Fantasy Gacha, I knew I had to have it!  You can play for the Arcana mesh dress in several colours and the RARE sleeves with a HUD in one machine per size at 50L per play, and then the Oracul Jewelry pieces separately in another machine at 50L per play.  As these pieces are transferrable, you can gift (Christmas is coming soon!) or share or trade or even sell the pieces you don’t want to keep, which is a super option in my opinion for being able to use the extras ;)

Happy gacha-ing and good luck!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL november-nights-l10-huntGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, November 11th.

The Dirty Turkey Hunt is still holding down the number one spot this week. It’s been right there since the hunt started on November 1st. November Nights is close behind. It’s a L$10 full perm hunt so if you’re a creator you might want to check it out.

The rest of the list has some handsome looking hunts as well. The Brothers Grimm Hunt has caught my eye as well as some of the others. I’m thinking it will be a busy week of hunting.

Just a reminder, that these are the 10 most popular viewed hunts over the past 48 hours or so. We don’t know how many people actually start (or finish) any given hunt and this ranking can (and probably will) change in a few hours.

See you out on the hunt!
