Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL splash of color huntI live in central California, so when mother nature turns up the late summer heat, I crank up the air conditioning and stay indoors. Second Life is always so nice and cool, so my partner and I do a good bit of hunting. Not only do we beat the heat, but we end up with all kinds of cool stuff.

There is lots to do! So many hunts… There are some pretty good hunts going on right now, but a lot of them are going to reach their expiration dates in about a week. Of course we’re going to be seeing a whole new crop of hunts on September 1st.

New to the hunting game? FabFree and HUNT SL have pages with tips and tricks. The short version is this: follow the clues, find the hunt object, touch it or buy it (most are free or very nearly free) and then push off to the next stop on the hunt. Not only is hunting a lot of fun, it’s also a great way to find some new nooks and crannies in Second Life that you’ve never visited before.

Ready to get your hunt on? Just poke the hunt names to get more information on each one.

See you out on the hunt!

Tuesdays with The Warrior Queen

Warrior Queen 1

Considering the time of day, I am going to make this post short and sweet in hopes of giving all the Fab Free readers as much time as I can to pick up these fantastic items. Today is Tuesday, and one thing I enjoy about Tuesdays is $25 Linden Tuesdays! As I generally do, I went through and checked out each of the participating shops, and really found some exciting fantasy and gorean themed items. I’m calling this look “The Warrior Queen”. The horns and headdres are from Sublime Shroud Kreations, and there are several colors to choose from, I think the details are stunning on this piece! The circlet is from Keystone. It includes various colors, as well as a silver version for lots of options, making this a really gorgeous versatile piece. The face-paint is a gacha item at Bite & Claw, there are several options, but I genuinely like this one the most. I like the sort of feral feel it gives to the overall look. Next I picked up this full outfit from Luas, it too is available in multiple color options. Wanting to give this Warrior Queen a little regal flair to her attire, I added the corset from Roawenwood, which also includes a color change HUD. I think it really completes the look and makes for a gorgeous fantasy inspired ensemble. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Dirty Diva HuntGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, August 19.

We’re into the last weeks of summer and if you’re following all the hunts that are in the planning stages then it seems like Halloween is just around the corner. Time flies when you’re having fun hunting!

The Dirty Diva hunt is still making a strong showing and has pushed its way into the number one spot. Enmeshed Into Fall Hunt has had some problems but is still getting a lot of interest. I guess people REALLY love their mesh, LOL. There are lots of fun hunts in the rest of the pack as well, with many more hunts going on too… about 50 hunts active at the moment.

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!

Tortuga Princess

Tortuga Princess 2

I have to say I am very much enjoying this round of The Fantasy Gacha Carnival. I’m spending way too many lindens, but enjoying it just the same! One of the things I really like is the fact that many of the vendors such as Aisling have set their gachas at just $50 lindens per play! Now you know what I’ve spent my lindens on, this incredibly detailed “Tortuga Princess” set from Aisling. Each piece is color-changeable, including commons, and has re-size scripts. I really do feel like a princess from some fabled island during a time of pirates and buried treasure! To go with my new highly detailed and colorful accessories, I picked up a pretty little set from Orsini Red. The top and matching bottom is fully mesh and they come in several standard sizes. The outfit also comes with gold bangles, which are not shown in my photos along with matching bow accents. The set from Orsini Red is a current Subscribo gift! I hope you enjoy my Tortuga Princess look as much as I enjoyed sharing it with you. Also, as a sweet little bonus, Aisling has set out a gift that includes 3 static poses, also at The Fantasy Gacha Carnival!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

I Hear Her Heart Beating Loud As Thunder

The Fantasy Gacha Carnival started about a week ago and it runs until 8th September. If you love Pirates, Vikings and the East then you will be all over this Gacha extravaganza just like I have been. You can see more of the items by visiting Love’s Mermaid post here and also Pru’s Pirate Adventure here! I am here today to show you some of the Eastern themed items you can win from a few of the Gachas there!

There really are some breathtaking designs on offer at this round of the The Fantasy Gacha Carnival and one of my favourite items as been the Sakura Shibari Dress by DeviousMind that comes with a set of Neo Geisha accessories that you can play for in a seperate Gacha. This dress is just so super sexy! It is fitted mesh so will need very minimal adjustment. I added the Sadhana Fans and Upper Arm bracelets that are by Aisling and the look is complete!

I really fell in love with the shape of the Princess of the East Dress by Murdock and I love the one sleeve detailing that makes it quite unusual. It comes with a floral attachment that covers the sleeve, but I decided to go without. I was very lucky to win the rare versions of both the Somilia Head Jewel by Pekka and the Lian Collar by A Masters Eye, especially as I really really wanted both! You will be seeing me wear the Head Jewel quite often in other posts to come I am sure! The detailing on both items is exquisite and whats great is they both have colour changing HUDs! Hooray! The Sadhana Bracers are another of the prizes you can find in the Aisling Gacha and they really are quite stunning!

Finally my last look shows the Oriental Desire Hair Decor and the purple version of the Oriental Desire dress by KioKio. The Hair Decor is just gorgeous and would be suitable to wear with many different styles and it is also fully colour changable. The Oriental Desire dress is quite cheeky.. and I mean it quite literally! If you are a little shy about showing your bum off then this might not be the dress for you ~laughs~ but it is absolutely gorgeous and a lot of fun to wear!

Junbug – ing On A Fifty Linden Friday

Snapshot_008Oh!  How I love Friday!!  Friday means Fifty Linden Friday stops for me, first thing in the morning.  Mostly I run from shop to shop down the list while I am multi-tasking putting on my face in the morning getting ready for work or skipping  breakfast or something lol.  FLF is worth one side of my face being un-mascaraed or those 10 AM hungry tummy growls.

This morning I picked up the FLF items at Glam Affair and Junbug and boy am I glad I did!  Junbug has two of their Ophelia Dresses out in Floral and Polka, priced at 50L each.  Above I am wearing Floral, and below the Polka.
Snapshot_001For this week’s Fifty Linden Friday offer, Glam Affair has out their Cocktail Girls Duo including the Kallista and Oakley Skins in the Asia skintone.  You get both skins for one price of 50L and there are several eyebrow options included.  What a deal!  Don’t forget the FLF items are only available for one day only!!

The Janice Jewelry Set is a free group gift at Virtual Impressions and looks lovely both with formal and less formal attire.  This set comes with the necklace and matching earrings (which are a little hard to see in my pictures – sorry!).  This group is free to join, and while you are there make sure you grab the freebie box by the stairs too!

A Pirate’s Life For Me!

Queen Anne's Revenge

The first thing every pirate needs is a ship! This beautiful vessel is titled “Queen Anne’s Revenge” and not only is it completely FREE on the Marketplace, it’s actually functional. It can be sailed, and has a hud to fire the 52 cannons on board! The second thing a pirate needs, is treasure. You know, gotta have shiny things to show off and doubloons to hire other pirates to go and get more shiny things!! I’m pretty sure that is how things work. Luckily, there are a few pirate themed events going on right now. One of which is the Skull n Bones Hunt. I picked up this awesome treasure chest full of gold and trinkets, along with it’s very own guardian for just $1 linden at Mirage. The treasure chest has several male and female sit poses, and the macaw is color-changeable. Once I had my ship, and I had some treasure, I felt like I needed a really awesome outfit. ‘Cause let’s be honest, in any job, it is important to “look” the part. With that in mind, I waded through the Fantasy Gacha Carnival and raided the Alchemy gacha for some incredibly well made, highly detailed pirate gear. It was then that I got a sweet little notice from MOCK Cosmetics with a group gift that matched my pirate ensemble perfectly! In the MOCK Cosmetics group notices you will find a set of “absinthe” shaded lipsticks. In love with my new pirate life, I had to share it with you! Yo ho Yo ho, A Pirate’s Life for Me!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me.

We kidnap and ravage and don’t give a hoot.
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me.
We extort and pilfer, we filch and sack.
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me.
We kindle and char and in flame and ignite.
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.
We burn up the city, we’re really a fright.
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.

We’re rascals and scoundrels, we’re villains and knaves.
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.
We’re devils and black sheep, we’re really bad eggs.
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.

We’re beggars and blighters and ne’er do-well cads,
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.
Aye, but we’re loved by our mommies and dads,
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.
Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Anarchy HuntMid August… does this count as the “dog days of summer?” Be that as it may, the middle of the month means another big turnover of hunts. There are five new hunts that just started today, as well as a bunch that are ending. I’ve separated out the hunts calling it a wrap so that you can make a final run at them. You’ll find them at the end of the list today.

If you’d like to get involved with this fabulous game of hunting, there is no better time. There is a plethora of hunts currently underway. If you need a bit of help to get started FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages to help you with that. Yup, all this hunt stuff is either free or very nearly so. I don’t know about you, but my wardrobe and home have never looked better.

Let’s do this! Just poke the hunt names to get more information on each one.

See you out on the hunt!

An Affordable Fantasea

Snapshot_001Good evening to all of you Fabulous Readers!  Looking for  something to spice up your Second Life?  Try some fins!  From time to time I put on a set of fins and make my mer way under the sea to visit Second Life from a different perspective.  Today I am plundering the Blake Diego Sea in my Pirate Mermaid Costume which I put together with some inexpensive The Fantasy Gacha finds and some FREE marketplace finds too.

Pure Poison is participating in The Fantasy Gacha and in this Pirate themed round they are offering the Pirate Mermaid Skeleton Bras in several colours and the Fitted Mesh Mermaid Tail (comes with a swimming AO, and colour change hud to match the different bra colours) at 50L per play.  Don’t worry, the bras are fully adjustable if you are erm.. bigger or smaller. :)  My Commander Pirate Hat is also a Pure Poison Fantasy Gacha find (50L per play).

I found the Monkey Island Insult Cutlass Sword and the Anchor Necklace in the AleyMart marketplace store, both for free! The sword actually works  – too fun.  They have a wide selection of free pirate goodies in that shop – so take a peek if you are into finding some good free pirate loot.
Snapshot_003The Even-Tide Mer Scales can be found on marketplace for 29L per colour or in full fatpack rainbows too.  They just add a little fantasy to your every day skin.  I am wearing a couple more tattoo layers which are also free.  The Mock Cosmetics Party All Night / Indifference Desert Sand Eyeshadow can be found inworld at Shop FreeStyle, and the Left Eye Scar Tattoo can be found on marketplace as a free gift by Le Baguette.

Last but not least… TSUNAMI is the maker of these free Mouth Bubbles!!
Pure Poison @ The Fantasy Gacha

I’m off to find some booty!  Enjoy your evenings :)
