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!

Orange and Blue, I love you…together.

My love of colour was super excited when I saw the current group gift from Ecce Bellus, and how lucky was it that part of the Dirty Turkey Hunt gift from Opal matched it perfectly! The FabFree blog luck fairy was looking down on this Fairey.  LOL

So, who loves contrasting, yet compatible colours? Me!! I just love the combination of orange and blue on the Miss Sunday dress from Ecce Bellus. It is their most recent group gift, and it is free to all group members. This lovely mesh dress comes in the standard sizes, and the texturing is so beautifully done. The group is L$50 to join, but so far, the group gifts have been plentiful, and this dress alone is more than worth that fee.

My ‘totally perfect for this dress’ bracelets, are from Opal, and are Opal’s contribution for the Dirty Turkey Hunt. Like all DTH gifts, these are free, you just need to find the turkey hidden in the store. The Roxy bracelets, in the colour combo called Rio, actually have 6 bracelets, each a different, but complimentary colour, so you can match them to many a different outfit. You only have until November 30th to get any of the hunt gifts, so don’t procrastinate!

Well, I hope you all have a wonderful evening/day, and I will be back tomorrow! Until then, TTFN :) .

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.

Down The Street I’m The Girl Next Door

Hello everyone. I’ve been absent for a couple of days due to feeling a bit on the sickly side but Im starting to feel better so I am back to show more great goodies you can find around the grid.

Today I am going to be showing you some things from The Kawaii Project. These adorable dresses by Katat0nik are the epitome of cute. I about fainted when I saw them in the gacha’s, because for L$75 a pull, its a steal! Whats even better is you have the choice between standard fitmesh for regular avatar bodies and a fitmesh that works beautifully with the SLink Physique body!

There are several different styles to play for in the Gacha, so I couldn’t resist showing you a couple more that I won. Especially as I am completely smitten by them! It also gave me the opportunity to show you a couple more of the colours of the Hair Bows from the group gift by Glow Designs! Their group is L$10 to join and you get a bumper pack of hair bows in the gift!
Untitled

Another aside is this really sweet skin that is the Hee skin by VCO. This is the rare prize in their gacha filled with Hee Lip tattooes and is L$69 per pull!
Untitled

Back to The Kawaii Project, if you join the event group you can find two really great gifts. One is a set of really pretty nail varnishes for SLink hands and Belleza hands by Quirk. Below you can see the HUD so you can see the colours available.

The other free group gift for the event is this really fun Couch and rug set that is by Atomic! The little plush toys are from the Exposure gacha at the event! I couldn’t resist showing you the four that I won and there are others to try for too!

This round of the Kawaii Project is open until 29th November so you have plenty of time to take a trip to Cutesville!

Golden Opportunity

Hello Fabulous Readers! Welcome to my first blog post!  First off, a huge thank you to the Fab Free blog team for giving me this opportunity. I hope I can carry the torch as well as you ladies. I have some big Blog shoes to fill. How’s that for a mixed metaphor?

One of my favorite things to do in Second Life is hunt. There is nothing like looking high and low, tearing your hair out a little then finally spying the Hunt object. And it only gets better when the prizes are as nice as some of the ones from the Golden Thanksgiving Hunt. This is a 1L per prize hunt and it’s a Linden well spent!

This first item from GTH is just stunning: Darkmatter’s teal and black evening gown. The prize includes both the ladies gown and a matching men’s tuxedo. I can’t get over how beautifully this gown is made. Every little detail is so precise. If you zoom in you can even see filigree on the skirt.

Even the back of the gown is simply beautiful.

I paired the gown with Lunamoon Creation Shop’s gold and pearl jewelry set.  You get the entire set: necklace, earrings and both left and right bangles.

ballgown 2

Lastly, I’m wearing Firelight Creation’s Slink nails set. The set is both manicure and pedicure and contains nine sparkly golden themed colors plus a basic French manicure nail.

Also on the Golden Thanksgiving hunt is this flirty ruffle dress from Mishmash Fusion.  Short and a little daring, I think it’d be perfect for a jazz club.  The stiletto heels come with the dress and are for Slink High feet. Mishmash also has a great matching men’s outfit in the prize as well.

Mossy Midnight Fae

Snapshot_001*{Junbug}* was a wee bit late in setting up at The Secret Affair Event, however they are participating and have now set up!   To make up for their tardiness, they have priced their gacha machines at the ridiculously low price of 30L per play.  The set featured is the Midnight Fae Set and you can play for ultra rare gowns in ivory and black, as well as rare gowns in a few different colours, and common sleeves and gold trimmed wings to co-ordinate!  I am wearing the Moss gown and sleeves with the ivory wings, and I think it’s super cute!

Good luck ;)

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

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!
