My Twisted Lament

I usually don’t go out into the woods during the day, nevermind during the night… but thankfully this is in my backgarden so I didnt have to worry about anything too bad jumping out to surprise me. Except maybe a kitty or two or maybe Mr0mizu!

There is still heaps of time to make your way through the evilest hunt in Second Life.. The notorious Twisted Hunt! There are over 100 stores taking part and heaps of side games and mini hunts to play, as well as Gacha’s galore and other goodies. This hunt isnt for the faint hearted as each store can be an epic challenge to find the Lament Box that holds the prize .. there are booby traps and decoys everywhere! But if you are determined, there are some amazing free gifts to behold!

Below I am showing a few of the home and garden gifts you can find. The Scrying Ruins are the prize you can find at Souzou Eien and is truely gorgeous. I will say that the large groups of candles are not included as I added them for effect. The black withered Web Of Time trees that are at the edges are by Noctis and are one of two prizes you can find here.

Isn’t that such a bewitching sight by candle light in the middle of the night! That almost sounds like an incantation.. I should be careful!

I had to wait until light came around to be able to take pictures to show you the amazing Spellcraft gown by Snatch that is another prize from the Twisted Hunt. This years theme is Time Warp which has allowed designers to include their Twisted Hunt prizes from over the years in a series of mini games or mini hunts that run along side the main hunt for this years prize. To find out what is going on at each store, simply click the board propped up on an easel near the TP point. No prize should be past 30 meters from where you land so that can be helpful to know, especially when you land in a huge store! The Spellcraft gown was last years prize from Snatch and is gorgeous. It comes with the necklace you can see and also a matching pair of earrings! Perfect for the little Witch inside of you.

The amazing Nevermore head piece I am wearing is one of the Rare gacha prizes by Chary and can be found at the new round of The Secret Affair. I was also lucky enough to win the rare Chamber Silver Raven Ring by REIGN which is from another gacha at the same event.

Untitled

The lips I am wearing are the beautiful Milky Lips in Peach with adorable teeth detailing by Angelica that you can find at the new round of The Gacha Mania. They also have a second gacha there which is where my eyes come from. These are the Clear Eyes in Blood. Both machines are L$30 to play!

Untitled

The last thing I have to show you is the DRD Carousel by Death Row Designs that is also from the Twisted Hunt. This would be the perfect addition to any Halloween decoration for the upcoming spooky season! I really love this and I love the lights that flash on and off as it spins around. Its so much fun!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Black & Purple HuntGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, September 16.

A few new hunts started yesterday, and these have jumped right to the top of our chart. These look fun and I’ll definitely be checking them out. You should too.

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!

Bettie’s got your cupcake!

This weekend seems to be all about the quickie posts for me, because here is another. Well, it’s only a quickie because you only have 2 days left to grab all the goodies from our very own FabFree Birthday Cupcake hunt, and I am showing you a few things you may be missing out on if you haven’t already finished this super easy hunt.

pinup1

The 2 gifts I am showing you are from 1-800-Bettie’s, and Asteria Creations. First up is this lovely vintage-feel gown from 1-800-Bettie’s.  The *1-800-B*Fishtail Gown in Plain Pink is one for all you non-mesh lovers! It is all system layers, with one of the best fitting system layer skirts I have worn in a long time! It also comes with a Tango applier for the top. I just love the way the ruffles on the bottom of the dress sweep the ground, and you wanna know a secret? I’m not wearing any shoes with this dress, and no-one would ever know. As long as you all don’t tell, of course :)

pinup2

The second gift I have on is from Asteria Creations, and is a lovely, fresh-faced skin with pale pink lips and eyeshadow, with a hint of yellow on the upper eyelids. The *Asteria Creations – Myia Skin – Sahpe PALE, comes with its own shape, which I thought would be fun to show you beside a shot with my own shape. I am on the left, and the shape included is on the right, and I will admit, I am a touch self-conscious about how far my ears stick out with a slick, pulled back hairstyle, and the other shape really makes it obvious! LOL. The eyebrows on this skin are a touch paler than what I am showing, as I just had to try out the brow out makeup, I showed you before HERE, again.

So, I will tell you, to get the skin gift, you are going to have to head over to the Asteria Creations main store, which is located HERE, as there was a tiny snafu in placement :) Don’t worry though, I think it is worth the trip, and it was still pretty easy to find :) The 1-800-Bettie’s gift though, is located at the FabFree HQ, along with so many other goodies. Just in case you haven’t seen it yet, here is the link to the Official Hunt Page, with preview pics of all the prizes, as well as links to prizes that we blogger’s have shown off. You only have until the 16th to get these gifts, so you better get over there right now! Seriously, right this second, well, ok, maybe finish reading my post, and then fly as fast as you can. LOL.

OK lovlies, that is all I have for the moment, so I am going to take my leave. Until next time, TTFN! *waves*

Your Friday Hunt Report

Green Mire IIIt’s Friday Fabulous Fans! That means it’s time to tell  you about the plethora of hunts going on. Yes, I do mean plethora! I have a whole big list of kick-ass hunts for you, and if you can’t find a theme you like… well, you’re not trying hard enough *grin*. Royalty, fantasy, alien abductions, school… the various hunt themes abound.

New to the hunt game? FabFree and HUNT SL have pages devoted to getting you started. You should beware however… hunting can be highly addictive, and your inventory may get bloated with all that free (or very nearly free) stuff.

Let’s get going! Just prod the hunt names to get more information on each one.

See you out on the hunt!

Snow in August never looked so good!

Before you yell at me, yes…that is snow in my pictures! I know, in most of our parts of the world, Summer isn’t even over yet, let alone any thoughts of snow. I’m sorry, I can’t help where my outfits inspire me to go for pictures, and you have to admit, my look in this post goes quite well with the white of the snow :P

snowblue1

So, I won’t go into much with my items on this post, as there is a deadline..the hunt for these gifts ends tonight!! Both the dress and skin are from the Fairy Tale Hunt, and you better move fast if you want them. I’ll remind you, the gifts are L$1 each, and for the hints and previews of other gifts, go HERE.

This gorgeous turquoise gown is the huint gift from OMG! Inc. The Grace Me Midnight Gown (love the name!!!) comes in 2 lengths. For all you non-mesh lovers, this is a system layer and rpim skirt gown..yayy! IDK if I like it better long or short, I’ll let you all decide, both looks are beutiful. I may be biased though, as this is one of my favourite colours.

snowblue2

The lovely pale skin I am wearing is the Thindwen skin from Deluxe Body Factory. I love the pale blue brows <3 In the gift, you get the skin, a brow shaper and an eyelash hider alpha (I did not use either of those). I did have to whip out the alternative skin hud for my SLink hands, feel free to IM me in world if you would like the numbers I decided on.

OK lovelies, I hope you have enough time to run and get these gifts. Along with many others on the hunt, sorry I don’t have enough time to show anymore prizes. I will be back with something else that is just as wonderful, so until next time, TTFN!

Blue Couture served up on a Silver Platter!

Hiii everybody!! It is a beautiful day in my neck of the woods, although many around me would say it is too cold. I, personally, love a good chill to the air. I was so excited to have to put on a jacket today. In honour of this glorious day, I wanted to do a post about a dress that I find equally as glorious :)

leaning1

I have already shown you a few of the hunt prizes from The Silver Platter Hunt HERE, with Shamic, so I thought I would show you another one today. This time, the prize is from Blue Couture, and I am doing this one sans-Shamic, because there is only a female gift available. But what a female gift it is! So much so, I purposefully started that last sentence with ‘but’, even though that is a grammar no-no :P Seriously though, the BLUE COUTURE MELODY SET , which includes the gown, matching necklace and earrings, a hip-hugger belt, and a pair of SLink high feet shoes, is so pretty! There is also a cute little clutch purse as well, but I forgot to put it on…d’oh! Check out the back on this dress…so sexy, it shows off my tattoo perfectly! The dress and shoes are rigged mesh, with the dress being available in the standard sizes, and the belt and jewelry are scripted for size adjustment. So, as long as you are willing to do a little hunting, you can get this package for L$1, or, if you just want to get in and get out, find the hunt sign, and you can get the prize for L$25. I love options! The HINT:We love Manga dolls !!

leaning2

With the gorgeous colouring of this outfit, I needed equally gorgeous nail polish. Now I know many of us FabFree bloggers have shown off quite a few of the beauty by alaskametro SLink mani and pedi huds here already, but so far, no one has shown the turquoise version. So, I thought I would :) For a minimal L$10 on the Marketplace, you too can have nails that match the Melody dress perfectly! I have included the ad picture below so that you can see all the variations on this colour that are in the hud.

SLINK-nails-Turquoise

*sighs* Alright, I think it time for me to venture back into my RL for now, my dog thinks we need to take advantage of the sunshine and head out to a dog park. Frankly, I agree! So, until next time, TTFN *waves*

Zombies make lovely music to dance to!

If you all can remember, I have ended up in a few spots with zombies, with my first zombie shoot taking place in Dusty Heights (HERE is the link to that post). Would you believe, there is an absolutely gorgeous ballroom, right smack dab in the middle of that place? So of course, when I saw the kinds of gifts Shamic and I were collecting from The Silver Platter Hunt, quite a few formal wear outfits for him and her, well…I thought what better way to initiate Shamic into FabFree blog posts, than to drag him there. We danced to the music of zombie groans and doors being rattled, it was awesome!

ballroom1

Our whole foray into the Silver Platter Hunt, which prompted me to head to a ballroom, started with the lovely Pru sending me a link to the hunt’s blog gift preview page, telling me that there was a nice male skin available at Style by Kira. She was right, of course, and lucky for me, there was a really lovely female skin available for the hunt as well. I am wearing the Style by Kira – Janelle Skin SPH, and Shamic has on the Style by Kira – Anton Skin SPH. Both of these skins will cost you a whole L$1 each. Or, and this is one of the neat features of this hunt, if you do not want to take the time to root out the hunt gifts, all you need to do is find the hunt sign at the store, and the hunt gifts are available there for you without having to search, the catch, these one’s are L$25. So..there are 2 sets of the same gifts, the L$25 ones, are right beside the hunt sign, and the L$1 ones, are hidden somewhere in the store, and will take a little time to find, the choice is up to you. Either way, these skins are well worth the extra time or extra money.

ballroom3

Our formal wear is from Wicked Sin Creations, and they compliment each other so nicely.  I have on the ^WSC^ Opulent *Red/Black* {Mesh} Gown, and Shamic is wearing the ^WSC^ Tuxedo *Red Waist Band* {Mesh}. Both outfits are mesh, with the standard sizes available. Like the skin gifts, you can choose to search for the hunt gift (both male and female gifts are in one object) and only pay L$1, or go to the hunt sign and pay L$25. While there are hints on the hunt’s blog site, the hint for this item is wrong, so I will give you my own hint “Hey Sweet Sugar, Be Mine!”. I just love the matching red colour of my dress and Shamic’s cumberbund, and we look so elegant together :)

ballroom2

The Silver Platter Hunt runs until September 15th, and with a large majority of the stores having either a unisex gift, or both a male and female gift, it’s a great hunt to do together with your honey, or just your male alt…like me :P LOL. I better not let Shamic hear me call him just my male alt, I might hurt his feelings.

OK lovelies, that is it for me, but you all know that I will be back, maybe even show a few other gifts from this hunt. Until then though…TTFN!
