Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Anarchy HuntGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, August 26.

The Splash of Color Hunt started this past week and rocketed right to the number one spot for a while (now at number 2). I did the Fairy Tale Hunt and Anarchy Hunt along with my partner and aside for the usually little glitches (stores out of business and such) I can personally vouch for the fact that these are well-run hunts. I’m sure you can find a hunt to suit your fancy. Enjoy!

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!

Mr0mizu Sings The Blues

Hello everyone! Today Im letting Mr0mizu show you some more things from The Blues Hunt which is a hunt geared towards the males of SL. There are some really great prizes on this hunt for you to find so its definately worth doing! All prizes are L$5 to purchase and the hunt ends on the 31st August so there is still around a week left to complete it. There are 50 stores to search and you are searching for a little cylinder shaped object with a blue top.

You can see some of the other hunt items that have been previously blogged here!

If you are looking for great new hair, then be sure to pick up the Miles Hair by Damselfly. It comes with a HUD so you can change through the pack of natural shades that are included with the prize! The Bootcamp Training Jacket & Ribcage V Neck Tee by Goth1c0 is a great two piece set. You can wear the jacket and shirt together or seperately which makes it really versatile.

There are several different tops and tee’s you can find on the hunt, here are a few of them but there are more! The Eleven Polo by Twenty13 is on the left with the purple mens Shirt & Vest one piece by Citrus in the middle. Lastly there is the fun Mousys Tank Shirt by sYs Design on the right which allows a better view of the Mazie Tattoo by Reckless which is also another prize on the hunt!

I hope you guys will enjoy this post! Mr0mizu will be back soon to show more male freebies and discounts!

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!

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!

Introducing Shamic Ember, Calle’s newly male av!

Hello everyone! I would like to introduce my original SL av to you, the pre-Calle av, when I couldn’t figure out how to remove the torch from my hand at Welcome Island…remember that dang torch? LOL. Anyways,  this is Shamic Ember, and while he did not start off as a he, I wanted to be able to show off some of the great men’s things you can find around the grid, so voila…the magic of SL allowed me to change Shamic’s gender :) Then, all he needed to do was make a few stops, and I think he turned out pretty good. Let me tell you what he got.

comfycouch1

I’m going to start off with the skin. 7 Deadly s{K}ins  is one of those great skin shops that dabbles in both female and male skins, and lately has had many free group join opportunities. Shamic was lucky enough to get into the group during the last free join, and had his pick of quite a few group gifts. The one he is wearing is the August group gift. If any of you male readers out there have gotten yourselves the SLink hands and feet for guys, this skin has those appliers included! This skin is free for group members, but the join fee, as of this post, is L$200. As I said though, there have been an awful lot of free join opportunities lately, so keep your eyes open, you never know, but, with the multitude of back group gifts you can get right now, L$200 is still a great deal.

comfycouch_004

As this is Shamic’s official introduction, he thought he should dress up. Lucky for him, when he joined the MENStuff group, and headed over to the gift lounge, he found the perfect t-shirt…it has a tie! Tie’s totally say dressed up, right? Even if it is just a texture on a t-shirt :P This free group gift is from alpha lab, and is a mesh, materials ready shirt, in all the standard sizes as well as a fit mesh version. Now, it is supposed to be texture change, and did come with a HUD, but it was having script issues, so until I hear back from the creator about it, consider it only available with the white tie pattern. Hey, it is still a great find, working HUD or not. The MENStuff group is only L$50 to join, but there are many group gifts from different designers available, so it is totally worth the fee.

comfycouch2

I could not let him wander around without pants, so lucky for Shamic, Nightmare Designs is currently participating in the Anarchy Hunt and has a great outfit as their L$1 hunt prize. Of the outfit, he is wearing the mesh pants and Doc Marten Boots, but there is also a pair of mesh, hanging suspenders and a mesh tank top. All the mesh pieces come in the standard sizes, and the Doc Martens are materials ready. You are looking for a little Anarchy A symbol, and the hint is ‘Why is there graffiti on my wall?’, oh, and there is also a gift for the ladies as well, so everyone should check it out.

Before we end this post, I wanted to quickly mention the cute couple pose couch we are on in that first picture. I wasn’t going to let Shamic do this first post alone, so I needed a pose for both of us to be in, and while searching the multitude of couples poses on the Marketplace, I found this great one. The couch is from OMFG Poses, and is called Relax. It comes with the poses and is totally modifiable to allow you to adjust until you fit together perfectly. At only L$1, it is a great addition to anyone’s pose collection.

Alrighty, that is it for us. What do you all think of Shamic? I think he is going to be great, I may even let him pose on his own next time! LOL. So, until next time, TTFN from the both of us *waves*

Hello again Fabulous readers! I hope your week is going well and you are all doing great! Here are some more great finds from around the grid for you to enjoy today.. and I have Mr0mizu here again to help me with showing some wonderful things for you guys!

Starting with the guys and what Mr0mizu is wearing! There are some great things for men at The Cosmopolitan Sales Room and a new round has just got under way. Top of the list is the free Tuxedo Hair by Damselfly that can be yours just by joining the Cosmopolitan Sales Room Group! Join for free and click the poster above the door in the main room! It comes with a colour change HUD and matching hairbases so there is bound to be a shade to suit your taste! The Alexandro Blazer by Etham and the Cargo Shorts by GioMEN are also available there for discounted prices. The Cargo Shorts come with a colour change HUD so you are really getting several pairs for one price which is a great bargain!

Mr0mizu is also showing a couple more items from The Blues Hunt! The Mazie Tattoo is by Reckless and the Owl Stra SLink Hand Tattoo is by Identity. Both items could be worn by either male or female! He is also wearing the Blaze Hi-Tops which is a free group gift by Eudora! If you are looking for a really great male skin at a discount price, then be sure to head over to The Mens Dept where you can pick up the absolutely gorgeous Javier skin by Aeros for L$300! Believe me this is an amazing bargain. There are matching SLink appliers on the floor nearby for L$25 each!

I have some great items to show you too! The Simply Sweater by Offbeat is a great wardrobe staple now the cooler nights are drawing in as Autumn gets closer while the Alien Leggings by L’Douce Push are so fun I couldn’t resist! They come with appliers for Phat Azz, Ghetto Booty, Banned, WowMeh and SLink aswell as system layers which I am wearing here. My belly tattoo is called Spell and is by Utopiah. It is another of the group gifts you can find at the Totally Top Shelf event! All you need to do is join the Totally Top Shelf group for free to grab the goodies!

My nails are by 7Mad Ravens and are usually how I feel when doing my nails.. one stroke and I was done! Me and nail varnish do not have the best of friendships as Im so clumsy, so these were perfect for me! My rather rainbowtastic skin is the Eliana skin in tone 4 by Lumae that you can find at the Olive You Fundraiser for half the normal price with all proceeds going to the fundraiser!

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!
