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!

A Pr!tty Back to School Look

School Days 2

It’s that time of year! Fall is creeping ever closer, and classes are staring back up. I really can’t wait for sweater weather! In the spirit of the back-to-school season, I put together a cute look with some casual attire. I don’t know about everyone else, but one of the first things I always did before returning to classes after a summer was get my hair done! Pr!tty has you covered and then some for a new ‘do to start out the new school year. Right now you can pick up four, yes four, different styles as special group gifts. Each Pr!tty hairstyle comes in a fat pack of colors, and the group is free to join. This means the gifts are genuinely free. Do not miss out on them! Next I picked up this super cute sweater and button-down shirt combo at BlahBlahBlah. The shirt is one of the current Lucky Board items at the main location. I also couldn’t resist the excuse to get new shoes. It’s true, there really is no such thing as too many pairs of shoes. I found these adorable ankle boots from DAISY for Free on the Marketplace. They are so cute on, and they come with a few color options! Every new school year requires a new bag or backpack, something to keep up with all the books, and notebooks, pens, and pencils. I personally prefer a messenger style bag, so this messenger bag from HOC Apparel was just the thing. It too has a few color options and is modifiable for adjusting size and fit. Probably my favorite part of this look is the glasses from VG. These geeky chic glasses are a $5 linden gift at the Trend Fashion Fair. They come with a color change and re-size HUD, and they are unisex. So I know you’ve been wondering about the pencils behind my ears, in my mouth, and up my nose… hahaha These cute little props are from Boof and also include a “hair sticks” version.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

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*

Party Girl

Party Girl

Even though it’s not quite Friday, this girl is ready for a party! I want to dance, maybe have a drink or two, and spend time with my fantastic friends, and maybe even meet a few new ones. Is that too much to ask?! Well, either way, I got dressed up for the occasion anyway. I adore this dress from Ashmoot. The dress comes in several bright playful patterns and color combinations, this one just begged me to take it home! The good news is it only costs $69 lindens at the current round of The Cosmopolitan Sales Room. Every dress needs the right pair of shoes. I found these gorgeous bronze heels at the La Metallique Fair. They are from Essenz and are in a gacha for $75 lindens per play. Also at La Metallique Fair I stumbled over this striking bracelet from Alienbear. It is a free gift just for the event, and I really love the uniqueness, it’s a true statement piece! What’s that you say, you see a little sparkle in my cheeks and across my collarbone? No, it’s not the wine, it is however a little body glitter I picked up at La Petite Morte. With such a brightly patterned dress, and a stand-alone bracelet, just a little glitter was all I needed to feel complete!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

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!

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!

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!

We’ll Be Raising Our Hands, Shining Up To The Sky

Its still the music festival time of year over here in the UK, so here I am out camping with Mr0mizu, getting in the mood for the weekend ahead! Right now we are only in our back garden.. and I much prefer that to a crowded campsite!

Mr0mizu is looking rather fine in his festival wear thanks to some great items from The Blues Hunt. His sweater is the hunt prize from Razor and he has his casual sandals for his SLink Feet courtesy of The Body Factory! He doesn’t usually like accessorizing but he finally found a necklace he liked thanks to the Ammunition Necklace by AITUI! He’s even grown a huge beard for the event! Im going to have to find some flowers to decorate that with later ~laughs~

He doesn’t look too amused with me trying for a piggy back huh! You can find this freebie pose called King and Queen at Diesel Works! It comes with a crown to wear too, but I didnt want to push my luck too far ~giggles~

I love my Heart Shaped glasses and if you love them too, you can find them as a freebie from Snatch at the District 5 event that began a few days ago. You can also pick up the free gift of a fatpack of Athytia Dresses by Somnia at the same event! The Cecily Necklace is just adorable and is by C’est La Vie as their new free group gift. It comes in a pack of several colours so you can match it to almost everything! Don’t you just love my rainbow boots! They are perfect festival wear and whats great is they are free on the marketplace as a wearable demo by ALB Dream Fashion!

How about this hair though huh? Its so amazing that I had to show you it!  It is made by Olive and you can get it from the Olive You Fundraiser which is an event to help the owner of Olive raise funds to save her home! I always love how SL really shows its community spirit when things like this happen. There are some amazing stores taking part, so be sure to come and take a peek. You’ll be buying some great things and helping a good cause in the process.

And lastly my skin is the Delphine Bare skin in tone 3 by Lumae and is their item for Lazy Sunday.. now I know Sunday was yesterday but the skin is still out so rush over to get it as quick as you can! It is available in 8 tones for a bargain L$75 each! He had to get in on that picture.. he’s just so proud of his beard! And I see some daisies over there with his name on them….

Combat Boots with Everything

Anarchy

I hope everyone had a Fabulously Fantastic weekend! I know I did! hehehe It’s a shame it has to be Monday, again. Didn’t we just go through this last week? :P At least we can take some time here and there to escape the Monday’s in Second Life and enjoy some shopping, or as I (and several others) like to call it, retail therapy!

Today I decided to go with a slightly different look, one I genuinely enjoy quite a bit. Have you ever known a girl who wore her combat boots with everything… seriously, everything, and yet somehow managed to make it look awesome?! Well this is that girl. These detailed mesh combat boots have been seen on Fab Free numerous times, but I love them, so I’m showing them again. Everyone should have a pair in their wardrobe. Since we started with the boots, I’ll move to the dress next. This funky printed mesh dress is really flattering on. I like the almost camouflage look to it, but more artful and sophisticated. The dress is by OVH and you can pick it up at The Dressing Room Fusion for just $5o lindens! In the past I’ve sort of ignored jewelry in Second Life. Now, I’m learning to love it. I managed to get this stunning necklace from Zibska at The Fantasy Gacha Carnival. The necklace also includes a set of matching earrings, and at just $50 lindens per play, the set is too pretty to not have it in your jewelry box! To go with my artsy dress and the beautiful jewelry, I needed my nails to make a statement also. I chose to go with a manicure from the Anarchy set at Nail Me! . This set is a $1 gift as part of the Anarchy hunt. The nail pallet has two unisex versions, both with some anarchy attitude! Like the poses I’m using? They are part of a great set called “Call me… Elf”  put out by Les Encantades Poses which can be had for $50 lindens for a limited time at The Countdown Room!

Here are the details, Enjoy!
