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.

reshoot_001

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!
Untitled

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.

Untitled

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!

Untitled

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.

ballgown1

Even the back of the gown is simply beautiful.

ballgown 3

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 ;)

She’s Such A Sweet Thing Every Day Of The Week

I had a notice through today about a new group gift from AUSHKA&CO ! The My Week shorts are their newest free gift and are so cute.
Untitled

You can have a pair of the shorts for every day of the week and if you ever forget which day it is, which I do frequently, you can just take a look in the mirror and bingo! You will be reminded.. though knowing me, I would still end up wearing Tuesdays shorts on Thursday! I am wearing the Sunday ones in this picture but the gift is a fatpack that includes all the names of the days of the week.
Untitled

I couldn’t resist showing the shorts with the adorable freebie “You’re A Sweet Thing” necklace that is the free group gift from Sweet Thing. It comes in both gold and silver. They also have a set of nail varnishes available for free so don’t forget to pick those up too while you are there. It was really hard to snap a picture of the HUD as it was quite small, but they are adorable!
Untitled

Also a quick note about my shoes.. these are the Ramsey Flats for SLink Low Feet that REIGN had out for L$75 for The Saturday Sale. They were still available at time of publishing this post, but I don’t know how long for so get over there quick if you want them as they may not be up for that price for much longer!

Harvest Moon

Snapshot_001
Hello Fabulouses! The Secret Affair Event has begun and there is a fantastic selection of unique fantasy / roleplay type items to be found. I took a trip down there this weekend and tried my luck on May’s Soul’s offerings and I was very pleased with my haul! In the photo above you will see me wearing (most of… I don’t do horns well lol) the Harvest Moon Set that is partial purchase / partial gacha plays. The skirt you can pick up in three colour variations for 100L each and then you can play the gacha machine (50L  per play) for the rare top (which was really not that hard to get – I got two!), the horns, furs and bracelets to match.

I feel a bit like a northern wilding princess!  now where is that man who “knows nothing”, because I heard he knows a few things <wink>. ha ha.  I need to back away from the dashboard before I get myself into trouble.

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.

Don’t mind the photo-bombing Penguins, they really like pink.

The other day, I showed you how Sugar Button Boutique was preparing you for winter with their Midnight Mania board (which has since changed to a cute sweater). Well, their November group gift is going to make you winter lovers even more excited, and while talking about this super cute jacket with Love, she brought up that it made her think of ice skating, and I totally borrowed that thought from her and ran with it.

skate1

The Sugar Button Boutique group is free to join, and once you do, you get this lovely wool, fur trim coat in rose pink for free, as long as you have your tag on when you slap the picture in store. It is mesh, and comes in the standard sizes, and is so sweet looking. As you can see, Love was totally right about it being a great coat for ice skating. The photo bombing penguins couldn’t stay away from me, so I think they were loving this coat too.

skate3

Now, if you are eyeing up the skin I have on, it is a free group gift for SLF&O members from NUNU’s, and it is called Ember. I think this face is so pretty, especially the freckled version. You get a few different versions of this skin, in both the natural colour lip I have on, and a bright red lip. If you are wondering about appliers, there are a boat load! Almost every applier you can think of is included.

skate4

Lastly, before I head out, I wanted to show a closeup of the earrings I am wearing. They are so much fun! I just lovvvvvvvve chocolate covered pretzels…and these cuties totally look like white chocolate covered pretzels. Mmm..my mouth is watering. LOL. Oh…ok, back to the earrings. They are from Pink Acid, and are a steal at L$25 per colour. You get both sizes that you see me wearing, and you can choose to wear them together, or seperate. There are several colours to choose from, but the grey that I went with, which looks more white to me,  made my stomach growl, so of course I had to get them. They are available at the current round of the Chapter 4.

OK lovelies, I am off. All this skating, and talk of chocolate covered pretzels has made me hungry!  Until next time, TTFN :)

From Autumn to Winter

I hope everyone has had a good week! I know I’ve been hitting the blog with quickies over the last few days but hopefully I will have some longer posts over the coming days!
Untitled

With the weather growing much much colder up here in the north, its wonderful to see some really great snuggly clothing filling the stores. Winter always have been my favourite month as I much prefer to curl under blankets and in cuddly sweaters and cardigans.. plus the possibility of snow always makes me so excited!

If you are starting to explore the sims around SL that are beginning to make the change from Autumn to Winter, then this full outfit from Firelight Creations will be the perfect thing for you expeditions! It comes complete with the coat, leggings and fluffy boots and whats more its all for free as their gift in The Whiteout Hunt!
