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*

Photo Challenge #12 – Love’s Version of FabFree Luau

Snapshot_001Good afternoon Fabulouses! Today I have group gift news and big sale news too ;)
First, I will start by telling you that The FabFree Photo Challenge Inspired me to try out this fabulous Tropical printed Ke Alaula Dress that can be found as a free SLF&O Gift at Entice.  This month’s theme is FabFree Luau and while I’m not in a grass skirt lol, I feel I am quite ready for luau ;)  The SLF&O inworld group is free to join, and once you join you can pick up two group gifts at Entice.  I am just showing you one, but the other is quite cute too, so snag them both while you are there!

The other thing I wanted to share with you today is a BIG RETIREMENT SALE AT BELLEZA… Yes, I totally yelled that!  YAY!  For a limited time you can find several skins at Belleza marked down as low as 100L.  I picked up a few that I liked including the Lily V2 skin I am wearing today.  Not only are they having a super sale, they also have male and female group gifts available for the taking!  Belleza is one of my favourite “naked” skins, because the body is so detailed.  Try a demo, and strip down (probably somewhere private, not actually IN the store lol)- you’ll see what I mean!
Snapshot_003The Belleza group gifts have probably been shown here on FabFree previously, several times… because well.. they are awesome, but I wanted to share them again in case it was new to someone!  Some of them are single skins, but others come with different skintones, eyebrow colours, options etc.  The group is 250L to join, but as you can see from the shots below – WORTH IT!

It’s cStar’s birthday, but the presents are for YOU!

Hey fabbies! I’d like to first apologize for my absence as of late, I’ve been battling a hectic and packed life away from my keyboard, as well as re-downloading ALL of my programs, drivers, software, etc. after having to completely wipe my computer’s hard drive thanks to a lovely (not!) computer virus which infected my system recently… let’s just say my week’s been full of fun!

Second, cStar limited, one of SL’s most loved skin shops, is celebrating their 5th birthday here in SL, but instead of GETTING presents, they’re GIVING 10 FREE skins away! What’s the catch? You have to find them! This is not your standard hunt either, you’ll have to look on various social media websites, as well as in the group (the gift in the platinum group and regular group are the same, so don’t fret if you’re not in both!), and in the store to get all 10. Each skin has a hint NC inside with how to find the next one, and the next one, and so on, so you’re not completely helpless finding them. In alphabetical order, the skins you’ll receive throughout this fun scavenger hunt are:

So, now that I’ve piqued your interest (I hope!), I have a smidge of sad news to share with all of you. I am going to be stepping away from blogging for Fabfree for a while in order to focus on my real life. I’ve sent out a notice to the blogger group giving a bit of an explanation, but I feel that I should share it with all of you as well, so here goes:

Blogging for fabfree has been something I’ve wanted, and aspired to do, since I discovered the blog several years ago, and having the opportunity to be part of this team has really meant the world to me. However, my life outside of the computer has taken an odd and busy turn, I’m not sure it’s going to change any time soon, and I’m honestly not sure I’d want it to. I don’t feel, at this moment, that I have the time to put the effort into fabfree that the readers deserve, and that the rest of the team has come to expect, and so I feel that it’s time for me to take a few steps back and focus on the world outside for a while.

This is in no way, shape, or form a “Goodbye”! I plan to bother you guys all the time, point out freebies when I see them, keep my position as a mod in the fabfree group, and I definitely plan to re-join the blogger team when my life settles down, but for now, I’m going to do “me” for a while…. or rather “us”, since a big part of the changes going on involve my  fantastic and adorable partner.

All the best of luck, and all of love in the world,
Skyler Glasswing ♥

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….

I’ll Be The Mad And The Bad And The Dangerous

Hi everyone, here is another look at some of the great freebies and dollarbies you can find at The Black Fashion Fair! There’s still quite a few to go through!

Im always looking for a great pair of skinny pants and I just know that the Leather Stripe Leggings by Kitje Cherie are going to become a staple part of my wardrobe as they will look great dressed up or down. I really love the SayIt Tank by The Little Bat, particularly as you can use the HUD included to choose from several different slogans to appear on the front! I picked the “Bad Witch” slogan for today but I promise Im a good little witch really ~smiles sweetly~

If you are looking for a sexy little black dress then you have certainly come to the right place! The Night Out Dress by Sassy is the perfect amount of sweet and sexy and is bound to get you noticed!

Another really cute dress that can be found is the Summer Comes Dress by Bubblegoth. Perfect for the little goth girl who wants to sneak out and get a little bit of sunshine.. but not too much!

Here is a close up of the jewelry I am wearing in the other pictures. The delicate beads on the Stygian Necklace by MV are so pretty and the pendant is quite a close match to the one on the Venice Bracelet by Shine by ZD.

The Third Eye Chakra Ring by ZoZ and can be found at the Totally Top Shelf event. Pru already showed you this ring in this blog post here. The Linka skin by Essences is also available there. Here you can see how it looks without the smokey make up layer I was wearing in the other post!

Junbug – ing On A Fifty Linden Friday

Snapshot_008Oh!  How I love Friday!!  Friday means Fifty Linden Friday stops for me, first thing in the morning.  Mostly I run from shop to shop down the list while I am multi-tasking putting on my face in the morning getting ready for work or skipping  breakfast or something lol.  FLF is worth one side of my face being un-mascaraed or those 10 AM hungry tummy growls.

This morning I picked up the FLF items at Glam Affair and Junbug and boy am I glad I did!  Junbug has two of their Ophelia Dresses out in Floral and Polka, priced at 50L each.  Above I am wearing Floral, and below the Polka.
Snapshot_001For this week’s Fifty Linden Friday offer, Glam Affair has out their Cocktail Girls Duo including the Kallista and Oakley Skins in the Asia skintone.  You get both skins for one price of 50L and there are several eyebrow options included.  What a deal!  Don’t forget the FLF items are only available for one day only!!

The Janice Jewelry Set is a free group gift at Virtual Impressions and looks lovely both with formal and less formal attire.  This set comes with the necklace and matching earrings (which are a little hard to see in my pictures – sorry!).  This group is free to join, and while you are there make sure you grab the freebie box by the stairs too!
