Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL battle of the sexes for himGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, July 29 .

The Battle of the Sexes hunts continue to lead the pack this week, with the Aloha Fair (not really a hunt) holding down third place. Around the Grid In 80 Days, Aqua Splash, and Dark Fantasy hunts are still making a strong showing even weeks into their runs. People really seem to be enjoying their 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.

See you out on the hunt!

Be the best Bone Collector you can be, with flowers!

Hello my FabFreebers! So how has your weekend been? Mine, as usually, was pretty uneventuful..although, some would call it ‘Calle being lazy’ :P I like these kinds of days, because it means that I get a chance to do a little more exploring around SL than I normally get to do. One of the places on my list I’ve been wanting to take a look at, is the Isle of Dee, especially once I saw the notices about the Bone Collector Quest.  I’ll tell you a little about the quest, and then, of course, tell you about my outfit :)

BoneCollector1

He was to collect the bones and bring them to the God
so he may breathe life back into them.
But scared, the Bone Collector ran…
The bones and ingredients are scattered all over the Isle.

Are you brave enough to help?

When you first land at the Isle of Dee, to your left is the board where you will get your HUD and a notecard about the quest. Read the notecard, attach the HUD, and your adventure starts! The hunt for the objects will take you all over the Isle, so it really gives you a chance to see this lovely build. I will warn you, while the objects are pretty well in plain sight, the tricky part is deciphering the riddles to find out where each object is. Once you have collected all the items, and found where the Greenman dwells, there is a second riddle where you have to speak the magic word to receive your gifts. This was a fun little quest and probably took me about 2 hours from start to finish, with quite a bit of extra exploring. At the end of it,  you get a little reward of a super fun hat with a replica of the skeleton you were running around collecting pieces of, as well as a shoulder pet of said skeleton, and a home decor wall piece that will give you a yes, no or maybe answer to a question you ask it, again, with the cute little skeleton on it and the Greenman himself.

BoneCollector3

Now, what am I wearing? Well, the theme of the Isle of Dee is supposed to be around 1400’s, medieval England, so I wanted to look the part. While it is not mandatory, it is encouraged. There is a board at the landing site that will send you to a little area with freebies, including a full female and male av, but I just wanted to find myself a nice dress, so to the Marketplace I went. I ended up finding a great freebie, Ulla by Madison’s Creations. I was even able to tint all layers to make the dress more my own, and as you can see, I went with a nice dark green colour, a nod to the Greenman. It has all system layers, a prim skirt, and prim arm pieces, which I was not wearing. It is a nice simple dress that will work for most any kind of period roleplay.

BoneCollector2

Although I promised there would not be a time cruncher again, if you like the poses I am using, which includes the flower in my hand, it is a pack of 5 poses, each with a flower, from Vanity Poses, as a limited time L$1 gift. They recently moved their store and have redecorated, so they thought they would give out a present. Take a look across from them at Bounce This Poses, they have a freebie gift put out for you as well.

OK, Sunday is drawing to a close for me, and I still have things to do to get ready for that pesky thing called RL work…so, for now, I bid you adieu, until next time.

Gorean Feathers

White Gorean

 

Recently it was pointed out to me that in my last few posts I’ve been wearing very little clothing. After a second of thought, I laughingly agreed. It seems “less is more” has been my accidental theme for the week. So today, I decided to continue with the tradition, and show off a little Gorean style gear I picked up at the current round of The Fantasy Room.

Seriously, I love fantasy fashion in Second Life. I love fashion of all kinds, don’t get me wrong, but there is a special place in my wild little heart that loves fantasy themed or inspired looks. For those like me, The Fantasy Room is an amazing event where you can pick up incredible items at a discounted price for the duration of the event. If I had unlimited funds, I’d grab up everything there!

Really enjoying the jewel tones of the feathers in my Fantasy Room haul, I was uber excited to get a notice about the latest group gift from The Sugar Garden. Right now VIP members can pick up a very pretty set of eyes from the VIP Penthouse. The eyes almost have a water-color look to them, which I think is quite striking. Don’t forget that a group tag is required to enter the room!

Before I give you the break down, I want to tell you about this outfit I picked up from Sweet Lies Original at The Fantasy Room. This fun and feathery ensemble includes so many pieces. For just $50 lindens you get scripted and non-scripted anklets, bracelets, the feathered skirt, ear-ornaments (not pictured), hair-ornaments (not pictured), the bra top and matching thong, not to mention appliers for Lolas Tango and Phat Azz. That is awesome! In addition to my outfit from Sweet Lies, I couldn’t resist the Nativa set from Luas, also at The Fantasy Room. This set is just $50 lindens as well, and it includes a beautiful ear-cuff and face-chain set. To complete the look, and because I couldn’t resist the gacha, I tried my luck and got these cute purple flat sandal boots by Una. All in all, I really like this look a lot. I hope you do too!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – More from the Medieval Fantasy Hunt

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone, originally blogged [HERE].

I didn’t want my first post on the Medieval Fantasy Hunt (MFH XII) to run on for too long, but I do have a few more great gifts from that hunt to show.  Check that earlier post to get the general information about the hunt blog and how the hunt works.  MFH XII not only has clothing, a number of the merchants are offering furniture and outdoor objects for medieval and fantasy role-players.

Lacrime dell’anima’s (MFH XII #35) free gift on this hunt is the Spirits of Nature Table set shown in the next picture.  It features four tree stump chairs animated with various sit poses arranged around a cut tree table (the lantern on the table comes with it), all set in a lovely field of flowers.  If you’re looking to fit out a rural or fantasy setting, this is exactly what you need.   Next to me in back of the table set is the Viking Wagon from the Independent Objects shop (MFH XII #26).  Although it’s not scripted to be pulled by a horse or a person, it does have several nice cuddle poses for just hanging out with your special someone.

3Lacrime&IO(MFH#35&26)_001Along the same lines, United Inshcon (MFH XII #1) is giving away this Water Pond to MFH hunters.  It’s a nice little pond surrounded by rocks and grass tufts, and contains a wood tree branch for sitting and two wooden docks.  You can see me sitting on the dock at the far end, but the dock at the nearer end near the log has a diving animation so that you can land yourself in the water if you try to sit on the dock.  Really great fun, but try as I might I couldn’t manage a photo of me diving.

4United Inschcon(MFH#01)_001~*Sweet Revolutions*~ (MFH XII #02) is giving as it’s free hunt gift the “Yggdrasil – Der Weltenbaum.”  I’m not sure what “Yggdrasil” means, but “Der Weltenbaum” translates to “world tree” and it is a very realistic looking season changeable tree.  I happened to find this tree already rezzed on Sweet Revolutions’ region and snapped the picture below.  But to my surprise I discovered that the green, moss-covered ruins with the pretty lilac-colored flowers that is right in front of the tree is Sweet Revolutions’ prize in the Midsummer Nights Dream 5 grid wide hunt (MND5 #09) which is also running during July.  Here’s a link to the MND5 blog page where you can find out more about this hunt, but at least you get a peek at one of the gifts here.

5SweetRevolutions(MFH#02MNDH)_001And finally, the last item I’m going to show you from the Medieval Fantasy Hunt XII, is a complete avatar called the Elemental Wisp, the free hunt gift from Lilith’s Den (MFH XII #04).  That’s actually me in the picture looking like a free-floating green mop.  The avatar comes with complete body alpha and all those swirly floaty attachments.  The attachments include animations which make you float about in the breeze even if you are not actually flying or walking yourself.  I normally don’t go for these fantasy fairy-like things, but this one is fun and quite unusual.

9 Lilith's Den (#4MFH XII)_001So there you have it – more useful and fun things from the Medieval Fantasy Hunt.

The Chieftain’s Daughter

The Chieftain's Daughter

As we all know, I am a huge fan of fantasy and role play, especially in Second Life. Today I was not simply Pru, I was the daughter of a Chieftain in some fabled tribe roaming the wilds of a distant land! To assist me in bringing this fantastical persona to life, I found this gorgeous headdress from Aisling. The Fangarth Headdress is one of their gacha items from a past event, however the gacha machine is now available for play at their main store. I also picked up one of the most recent group gifts from Luas. This daring outfit is called ” Chained Panther” and it includes the top, bottom, anklets, bracelets, and necklace all for free! I would like to note however that this outfit is not PG, if it weren’t for some artful poses I would have been showing off more than just my war paint… if you know what I mean! That said, if you like the outfit but aren’t prepared to show off that much flesh, a simple pair of panties would cover you and still work well with the look in my opinion. Speaking of war pant, the full body war paint Pru is wearing in the pictures is from Kun, it is tintable, and it costs a mere $10 lindens on the Marketplace.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Arabian Summer

Modern Harem Girl

Hello Everyone, hope you’ve all been having a wonderful day! I’ve got a pretty awesome gift to show you, thanks to our very own Love. Normally I might not have picked up this Harem gift from ALB. However, Love pointed it out to me, and I am so glad she did! I have to admit, she’s right, I’ve had a lot of fun with this one. Not only is the gift very cute on, I got tons of compliments on it while wearing it around. In addition it comes complete with a top, pants, shoes, and matching jewelry! I felt like some modern Arabian princess while taking the photographs. Needless to say you really do not want to miss out on this one.

Summer Breeze

LNS Poses Walking on Air

It’s time for some more Candy Factory goodness! First, I made a mistake in the last Candy Factory post. I said the theme was “Clouds” it isn’t. The theme is “Air”! Sorry for the mix-up, at least the two are related. :P

My little mix-up aside, I was excited to see some unique static poses from LNS at this round. These poses are sort of whimsical and ballet-like, especially for being static. There are five individual poses, each with a mirrored version available for ten total pose. These poses seem to be meant for the ballerina fairy costume from Co*Motion. The scrappy tattered skirt is really pretty, and there is some nice corseting detail in the back. You can also pick up matching wings from Co*Motion at The Candy Factory as well.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hello…Mr. Tumnus…are you here?

With all the Fantasy type events and hunts going on right now, I figured it was high time I did a post that was fantasy related.

Narni1

The mesh Temperance dress I am wearing, as well as the fantastic Woodland Lampost I am standing beside are what you will receive when you find the butterfly at the MASH Fashion store. They are both included in the hunt prize for the Midsummer Nights Dream Hunt, and if you would like more information, and/or hints, here’s the link to the KastleRock Hunts Blog which has all that info and more. Every prize on this hunt is L$1, but every store is supposed to be supplying something for everyone, whether it be like MASH, with a women’s gift and a unisex gift, or a male gift, some even have gifts for petites. I love hunts where everyone can be happy :)

NarniaCollage3

Staying within my fantasy mood, I hit up this round of The Fantasy Room, and found this beautiful headband from GED. The Ethnic Swirls headband, in silver, is only L$50, but if you prefer gold, there is also a gold version available. I love the delicate swirl right in the middle of my brow, I feel like an elf princess with this piece, I just need the pointy ears now!

My last stop was at a more sci-fi event, The Nexus. There, I played the Nova Gacha for Origami SLink nailpolish, at just L$25 a play. I lucked out and actually got matching peach finger and toe polish after only 4 tries! I really like the pixellated look of this polish, and can see myself wearing it quite often. I’ve included a picture of the vendor so you can see the different colour combinations that are available.

Narnia2

So, what do you think? As I was taking my picture, being photo-bombed by a roaming ferret, I was expecting characters from the Narnia books to just pop out of the trees.  Fantasy is one of my favourite genre’s, and I really should do more posts like this. Expect more from me!

Until next time, I’m going to go check and see if that ferret can talk :) TTFN!

It’s Canada Day eh! Yes, I really do say eh.

Canada1

Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canucks! I hope today is a day full of BBQ, maybe a beer or 2 (or 3) and fireworks!  I thought I’d put together a FabFree-esque look for my Canada day, and I lucked out and found a BBQ to go to.

Canada2

Almost everything I have on was found on the Marketplace. In fact, I had given my Mom a heads up about keeping an eye out for cute Canadian things in her SL travels, next thing I knew, my IM was flooded with links to great Marketplace finds. One of them being this super cute mesh dress. The Babele Fashion Simply Mesh Canada dress is L$50 and comes with a pair of cute system feet heels as well (which I am not wearing). IDK why, but I just love the little detail of the pocket on the front, it’s a perfect place to put your beer tokens in if you are out at an event with a beer garden! Whoever said the stereotype of Canadians liking beer is not true, is wrong…well, at least for this girl :)

The next must have for my outfit, fitting in with the fact that I am in Western Canada, and on the prairies, is my fun cowboy hat. Make that cowgirl hat ;) The EC Canada Flag Hat is from Ella’s Creation’s, and is only L$25.

In keeping with the kinda-cowgirl theme, I needed boots! I wasn’t able to find any Canada day themed ones that I wanted, but I did find a pair that intrigued me. The Riders Navarro Boots are free, and they are actually a starter kit. You get the boots, with 3 basic textures, Black, Brown and Pink. The neat thing is, you can then buy add-ons for them, such as different textures, toe caps, spurs, you name it. There was even a pack with flowers in it that I saw. Those add-ons, however, are not free. Honestly though, the boots are so fantastic as is, I really don’t feel like I am missing out too much by only having access to the basics.

My final addition, I had already had in my inventory, but are still available on the Marketplace. The Hopscotch Maple Nails for SLink hands and feet are only L$1, and they are the perfect icing to my Canadian outfit cake!

Speaking of cake, they have a cake here at this cute little BBQ being put on by Divnity. You should really come check it out, and for all the Americans reading this, right beside the Canada Day setup is a 4th of July set up. So, to all those dual-citizens, you only need to go to one place for both parties! How great is that :)

Oh, I almost forgot, if you don’t have any fireworks to go to, you can get your own mini one, a sparkler that is! Plethora put out a pack of handheld sparklers for Lazy Sunday this past weekend, but they are still available at the store for the Lazy Sunday price of L$75. You get 7 different colours, plus a Red, White and Blue colour changing one.

OK., I am off to find some more festivities, hopefully ending with fireworks. Hope you all have a great Canada Day! TTFN
