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!

Time to kick those shoes off, but they are such nice shoes…oh the dilemma!

Phew…what a week it has been for me!  Even with as much fun as I have had doing the Do the Dot Hunt, tonight, all I wanted to do is just sit down with my shoes off, in a comfy chair. Lucky for me, this hunt has the right gifts for me to do just that :) LOL

seateddot1

I may as well start off with the comfy chair. {Sickly SWEET} is one of the several non-apparel stores participating in the Do the Dot Hunt, and I really like the simplicity of the design of the Helena Chair with the fun pattern of the ever-present theme of this hunt, dots :) The chair comes with 6 animations built-in, and depending on your body shape, they all can work well for any gender. Plus, there is an adjust button in the menu as well, so even if you find that you are sunk into the pillow, or hovering off to the left, you can adjust yourself to your heart’s content and fit perfectly. Remember, the gifts on this hunt are free, and you are looking for a ball that is white with black polka dots.

As much as I want to take my shoes off, as most people do at the end of a long day, I had troubles taking off these lovely shoes, Meshell Black-White, that are the hunt gift from Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes. Now, all you non-SLink feet loving gals out there, and I know there are many of you that just don’t vibe with mesh feet for whatever reason, these shoes are meant for the standard SL avatar feet! I’m just wearing my feet in the pics because I love the nail polish I have on my toes which is only for SLink feet, what can I say, I’m addicted :P That does not mean that I don’t still appreciate a great standard foot shoe, and with the classic black and white polka dot pattern, these babies are awesome.

Speaking of classic, the hunt gift from Sky is a total classic, with its cute little peplum skirt. This sweet dress is mesh, and comes in the standard sizes, and it is so easy to accessorize, it just lends itself to any colour and style of jewelry.

Lucky for me, there is a great jewelry gift from Freya’s Finest  for the hunt, a texture change choker and earrings, of which you can’t see the earrings through my hair. Every bit of these pieces is texture change. You can use the provided HUD to change the texture of the metal as well as the ring of jewels in the middle, but if you want to change the texture of the ribbon, you just need to click on it and a menu will pop-up, you can also change the metal and jewels texture through the menu as well. The earrings match the jeweled ring on the choker perfectly. The choker has mod ability, so you can make it fit perfectly.

Alright, I think my bed is now calling me, I’ve lounged around too much to want to do anything more tonight :P Oh, and since I have yet to mention this in my other posts about this hunt, I’ll tell you now; many of the stores have colourful polka-dot pathways showing you the area their gift is hidden in, so really, even if this is a first time hunt for you, it is a pretty hunter friendly one, especially when combined with the hints given HERE.

So, goodnight for now, I still have 1 or 2 more things I want to show you from this hunt, so until then, TTFN! *waves a shoe at you*

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!

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!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Fairy Tale HuntGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, August 12.

There are lots of cool hunts going on. The Fairy Tale Hunt has jumped to the top of the list this week, with Dirty Diva holding the second spot, and the female path for Battle of the Sexes still making a strong showing. My partner and I have been planning on doing Kagami, but it’s rumored to be so popular that it’s hard to get in. I’m sure you can find a hunt that will give you hours of enjoyment.

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!

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.

FabFree HQ encourages lounging…Let me show you how!

Hello Fabbies! How is your week going? Are you all as happy as I am that we are passing the midweek mark? I thought, as I was just lounging around my skybox,  I would show you all a few of the free gifts that some of our generous FabFree Designers currently have available down at the FabFree Headquarters.

SeldomBlue1

First up of the FabFree gifts, Seldom Blue has put out the beautiful Lottie Lingerie in a lovely pinkish shade of red, and black. You can wear this set with or without the waist cincher and garters, as well as the stockings. For all you meshy-bits lovers, there are a few appliers supplied with this, a combined Tangos and Phat Azz applier, a SLink feet applier, and 3 layer HUDs for the SLink Physique body, so almost everyone should be very happy :)

SeldomBlue2

I personally believe that lingerie and jewels go together perfectly, so I was pretty happy to see that the current gift at FFHQ being offered by DDM Designs, was a gorgeous pair of sweetheart earrings, which just so happened to have a pinkish-red stone in the hearts. Talk about happy coincidence!

SeldomBlue4

Now, when lounging around in your lingerie, you cannot lounge in an empty room. So I took advantage of 2 more free gifts being offered at FFHQ. The first being from StoraxTree, the aptly named Cathedral Chest, has a definite gothic church feeling to it. Just above it is my second choice, the spirograph memo board from Wise Walls, which is a nice contrast in style to the chest. It is actually one of 2 wall decorations you receive in this gift, the other being a pretty heart memo board, which also would have worked nicely in my pictures, not to mention complimenting my heart earrings!

SeldomBlue3

Are you eyeing up the skin I am wearing? Don’t worry, stare all you like, I did when I first saw the gacha for it. Located just outside FabFree HQs, is a new gacha from Flounce. Many of you older skin lovers may remember Mimi Coral’s previous store, Cupcakes, Flounce is her newest creation, and yet again, she is satisfying our skin cravings, and at only L$25 a play for this gacha, it satisfies our love of a great deal as well. There are 5 different tones available, each tone having 2 different makeups, and none of the makeups are alike, so you have 10 different skins to play for, and all of them are so pretty. I have included a picture of the gacha ad for all of you to see, I am wearing #7, Anna – Latte – Nebula. The skins come with several different tattoo layers for beauty marks, freckles, blush and cheek highlighting, which you can put together to make your face your own.

SeldomBlue5

OK, my evening is winding down, and I think all this lounging has made me ready for bed :P Remember, do not let anyone tell you that it is weird to hang out in your undies and high heels, alone…well, almost alone if you don’t include Simon, who is already sleeping in the background. Until next time, TTFN!! *waves*

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – Calling All Roleplayers – The Medieval Fantasy Hunt

A Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – Originally blogged [HERE]

I have to admit I’m a sucker for historical stuff in SL and I always try to check out historically themed hunts.  The twelfth edition of the Medieval Fantasy Hunt (MFH XII) is running until the end of this month, and starts at the United Inshcon shop sim.  You can follow the hunt either by getting the LM to the next hunt stop from the previous store’s gift or you can used the list of SLURLs at the MFH XII hunt blog.  The blog also gives the hints for each stop in both English and German (with one stop just in German) which is an advantage when you come upon a stop where the hint giver isn’t set up.  There were 52 stops in the MFH XII hunts when it started but 7 have dropped out, leaving 45 offering either a unisex or both a male and female prize.  But despite the fact there are just 45 stops, many of the prizes are ingeniously hidden at a considerable distance from the landing spot and it will take you a bit of time if you want to do the entire hunt.

First off let me show you the Odhor black mesh warrior outfit gift from PeKaS (MFH XII #15).  It’s mesh and includes alternative tunics with the hood up or with the hood down.  This outfit also includes the shoulder cape and the back-carried shield.  But the sword I’m wielding is the Viking Sword MFH XII gift from Dwar Barbosa Weapons (MFH XII #34).  The gift includes a wearable sheathed version, and is scripted with drawing and sheathing animations as well as the standard fighting animations.7Pekas,DwarBarbosa, Feyline (#15,34,28)_001The rightmost panel in the picture above shows an entire medieval Bryce woodsman outfit, which is the male gift at Feyline Fashions (MFH XII #28).  In addition to all the clothing, the outfit includes the hat, boots, bow and arrow (unscripted), and thigh-carried hunting knife.

Moving on, I’ve changed outfits to show you the Mystical Fantasy male medieval outfit in blue from C&N Designs (MFH XII #27).  The tunic and pants are mesh, and the outfit comes with the belt and boots.  It’s an elegant outfit, so I’m wearing it as I relax on Her Majesty’s Wooden Bench, the gift from An Lema (MFH XII #25).  This gift includes the animated mesh bench with all those pillows, the rug, two plant stands, and a table with decor items on it.

2AnLema:C&N_MFH#25&27_001_001

And finally, this next picture shows you the Korin knight’s outfit, the male MFH XII gift from The Seamstress (MFH XII #37).  It doesn’t include the boots (those are the boots I showed you above), but it is a mighty fine looking outfit with a gold design on the red velvet and a gold neck chain. That pistol is the Pirate Pistol MFH gift from Designs by Isaura (MFH XII #12).  The gift includes a “holstered” version which has the pistol held at the waist with a golden sash.  The pistol does fire, but is not damage-enabled unless you stick your own scripts into it.

6Seamstress&Isauraus(MFH#37&12)_001

There’s a lot more good stuff out there on the Medieval Fantasy Hunt so I hope I’ve shown you enough that you’ll go out and find all that good stuff.

Summer Fashion Festival 2014 – Part 4

Alright my lovely Fabfreebers, here it is, the 4th and final installment of my Summer Fashion Festival 2014 posts. Now, I will apologize in advance, I am sure I missed some of the gifts out there. Some stores may have simply not had them out when I went around, or I just plain missed them, but I think I got the good majority of them. Oh, before I get to the pictures, I never did mention that there are gacha machines at this event as well. Lots of cute things to be had from them.
