Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Boo Bunny HuntJust one week left until Halloween! If you haven’t taken advantage of one of the dozens of Halloween hunts, then now it the time because the clock is ticking. There are some fabulous and scary gifts out there lying around, just waiting to be picked up… Halloween costumes, spooky graveyards, gnarly trees, and more! Bring a couple of friends because it is terrifying out there.

What is this hunting thing you ask? Well 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 I find most, if not all of them, to be great fun. FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages with tips to help get you started.

Ready to get going?  Just poke the names for more information on each one.

See you out on the hunt!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Femdom Hunt VGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, October 21.

The fifth edition of the Femdom Hunt is leading the pack this week. This is a very popular and well run hunt, as is the eighth edition of Hunt for Your Inner Slut, which is holding down the number 2 spot. It seems like it’s a good week for sexy hunts. I’m sure you’ll have fun checking them out.

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!

The Seasons Story Part 1

Happy Monday FabFree readers! What better way to start a new week than with a heap of gorgeous freebies! I told you about The Seasons Story yesterday in my last post. Today I am going to be focusing on some of the amazing free gifts you can find there! The event is celebrating its 1 year anniversary and lots of the designers have put out free gifts for us! How amazing is that!

Pretty much everything I am wearing today is a freebie from this amazing event, so you can really update your look in one go. The Tweed Tank Dress by La Penderie de Nicole is such a cute dress for those slightly warmer autumn days and if it should get a little chilly, then no fear as I have the Shoulder Knit by :: K :: to keep me warm. This comes in both male and female options in the gift so your male friends can keep cosy too! To add the perfect girly touches, I chose the Flower Clutch by Imeka and the Ambrosia Platform Wedges for High SLink L.Warwick that both have similar floral prints and tones which make them match almost perfectly!

Untitled

As you probably all know by now I am a big fan of Glam Affair skins so I was thrilled to find that they have put out a free gift of the Penny Skin in the Asia tone with a beautiful autumnal make up. I am wearing the Loud Mouth with it using appliers for the Romy Skin which seems to work quite well to match, so if you want to do this too, now you know how! I really love the Happy Halloween Headband by Zenith which adds the cutest touch.
Untitled

The cute pastel coloured Birthday Necklace is by Sweet Thing and the rings are by Spirit Store! No outfit is complete until you get your nails done and mine are the black option from the Sigil Nails set by Lumae that are a dollarbie at The Mystic Realms Faire. You can find them in the little rainbow butterfly along with a set of shapes and a fatpack of eyebrow tattooes!

Untitled

There are also some great autumnal items for the home as free gifts at The Seasons Story! If you are having a Halloween themed Party, be sure to pick up theses yummy sticky toffee apples called Apple of the Forest by Poche! There is an absolutely delicious looking Pumpkin and Chocolate Pie by Aphrodite which gives out wearable cake slices when you click on it. Also there is the Atsukan Saki Set by Soy which is really cute and no Halloween party is complete without Wash Tub Full of Pumpkins by A.D.D.Andel!

Untitled

The beautiful Leaf Art painting is by SilentSparrow and features original art by Shannon Strickland who is also known as Hyasynth Tiramisu, who is the owner and creator of SilenSparrow! The Autumn Letters sign is by Consignment. And finally the cute little Leaning Book Stack is by Floorplan. I love stacks of books in SL so this is a wonderful little piece for me to add to my collection!

Waiting for Sundown

Waiting for Sundown

Fall is officially here, the leaves are turning, and it’s time for hoodies and carving pumpkins! In the spirit of the season, and specifically the grand finale of October that is the best holiday of the year, Halloween, a hunt! No no, think looking for hidden objects and finding cool prizes, not people on horses with a pack of dogs hunting a fox. Lasting the full month of October is the Night of the Living Cart Sale and Hunt. There are tons of amazing designers participating in this festive event. Each vendor has a booth set up with their Halloween best at great prices, as well as a hidden hunt object.

The actual hunt part of the event takes place all over this incredible spooky-winter-themed sim. Each hunt item is $2 lindens. There are items for the ladies as well as the gents, and everything in between from poses to posters! So grab your friends, gather the family, and check it out! This will be the first of a few posts showing you some of the hunt items I managed to gather with my male persona, Diamos. By the way, you’re hunting for a little grey brain object, which blends in really well with a lot of the scenery, so look close!

First, there is this pretty little fall scene complete with the big fall foliage, pumpkins, some well placed barrels, and a few friendly looking rats. This set up with the two poses would be a great addition to any Autumn outdoor decor. I also picked up this lovely luminous lamp, which technically is a table lamp but I thought it would work great for lighting the way on our search and rescue missions.

As I mentioned before, I did dust off Diamos (aka my alt) to do a little hunting with me at the Night of the Living Cart Sale Hunt. One item we found is this hoodie. The item I believe is meant to be a men’s item, however Pru threw on one of the smaller sizes, and I think it looks warm and cozy. The hoodie has a cool logo that reads “Zombie Apocalypse Rescue Team” which is awesome considering the current zombie craze! Also part of the hunt, I found a pretty fall colored manicure/pedicure set with metallic bat overlays.

Last but not least, I picked up this beautiful hair at Little Bones. It is one of their most recent group gifts. It includes a color change hud for the hair, and one to change the scalp part to match your skin. This is seriously my new favorite hair!

Here are the details, Happy Hunting, and Enjoy! I’ll be back later with more previews from the Night of the Living Cart Hunt.

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.

Untitled

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.

Untitled

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!

Guest Blog by Gloria Silverstone – A Touch of the Renaissance!

A guest blog by Gloria Silverstone, originally blogged [HERE] – A Touch of the Renaissance!

Grand, formal, opulent, and stately are terms I think of when I think of the Renaissance period.  Great art, architecture, literature, and inventions flourished during this time with masters like Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo Buonarroti, Raphael (Italy), and William Shakespeare (England) emerging.  It is also the only period I don’t have furniture for in my inventory.  But not to worry, my resource is the currently running Renaissance Fair Hunt IV.  I’ve created three vignettes with gifts from numerous hunts below (**mostly free). Remember always shop around, don’t just buy every new release item from the top Second Life creators, because in the end you only recreate their vendor ads and it never has your personality infused.  Use anything that inspires you as a source, take risks, be creative, and challenge yourself like I did with my tribute to the Renaissance.  After all Renaissance means re-birth so it’s the perfect time to freshen your home with new ideas.  Happy decorating and good luck hunting!
