Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL The Lost MineHello Fabulistas! It’s Friday once again and that means it’s time to bring you up to date on all the notable hunts out there on the Second Life grid. More Easter themed hunts have bloomed in the last week and all those Easter eggs are lying around out there, just waiting for you to pick up. It proves to be another great week for hunting!

Hunts are a fabulous way to pick up a lot of free (or nearly free) goodies. Store owners hide them for you to find. All you need to do is follow the hints and go find them! FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages with useful tips and tricks. Or… find an experienced friend to show you the ropes. A lot of hunts also have groups to join so you can ask for a little extra help if you get stuck on a clue.

So here are the hunts. Just poke the names for more information on each one.

See you out on the hunt!

A Little Bit of the Japan Fair

Culture and fashion are two of my favorite things, and you can get a little of both at the Japan Fair! I spent just a little time and was able to pick up a few super cute gifts, along with some hunt items. A few merchants are participating in a “secret” hunt just to add even more fun to the event! The Fair will run until April 20th, so there is plenty of time to explore and discover all the beautiful creations the participating designers have created with the enchanting Japanese culture as their inspiration. I really wish I had more time to spend exploring personally, I feel like there is a lot I miss out on at times. That said, I am stoked to show you what I did find! I hope you enjoy it, I certainly did!

Feeling sassy!

So, the Easter designers hunt has started, and it’s a bit different from your normal hunts. In this one there are only 4 shops: The latex stationNaughty & Nice, Edelfabrik, and Sassy, and each of these shops has 10 gifts out, just waiting to be found! The hints and landmarks in each hunt gift lead you back and forth between the 4 shops until finally you have all 40 prizes! There are some truly fabulous gifts from all of the designers in this hunt, but I’m going to focus on a few of the gifts from Sassy!

Feeling sassy_001
My first outfit is a combo of gifts #25 and 28, the Tribeca leather pants in gold, and Gramercy leather corset in Ivory.

Feeling sassy_002
Second, we have gift #4, the Coquette dress in blue. This dress could easily be dressed up for a date, worn over a swimsuit at the beach, or paired with some cute sandals for an afternoon picnic!

Feeling sassy_003
and finally, if you’re looking for something a little sexier, I recommend gift #7, the contour dress in olive! This dress looks great as is, but I could definitely see it looking just as great over a pair of jeans with combat boots! Never be afraid to experiment with your fashion!

Feeling sassy_004
If you’re looking for another fabulous freebie, then I recommend checking out Little bones‘ newest group gift. The black magic hair comes in a FULL fatpack of colours, meaning you get it in every single colour the shop makes! The group is CURRENTLY free to join, however, it is normally $L250 to join. I definitely recommend grabbing this while you can, and staying in the group because the gifts are not only lovely, but they are extremely frequent and generous.

You’re the apple of my eye!

So, the apple of my eye hunt has begun! This is a little super quick and fun hunt that’s got a little something for everyone. There are only 13 stops on this hunt, and I was able to tackle it in about half an hour, so if you’ve got precious little spare time, this hunt is perfect for you! As usual, I’m only showing off a few of the gifts from this hunt, because where would be the fun in hunting if you knew everything you were getting ahead of time?

My top and capris are from stop #1 in the hunt, Zanzo. Both pieces are rigged mesh, and come in all 5 standard sizes!

The candy factory gets all wet!

So, the april round of the candy factory begins April 1st. This round’s theme is “water”, and it’s a gatcha round! Here’s a sample of what the designers have to offer!

TCF APRIL_001

Zoe’s garden has a lovely set of materials-enabled dance fountains for you to collect this round! On the left is the RARE, rose couple’s dance fountain (23 land impact), and on the right is the blue tile dance fountain (10 land impact), which is a common. I tried to get both of these in the same photo, but they are so large that it just wasn’t possible in the small space I’m using! There are 5 of these to collect, and the gatcha is $L35  to play!

TCF APRIL_016

Their second gatcha contains tulips in watering cans! These are super cute, and would be perfect on a patio, in a home, or even decorating a shop! There are 5 to collect, and the gatcha is just $L15 per play

Here I have the ULTRA-RARE couch (11 land impact), 2 UNCOMMON book shelves (13 land impact each), and a common coffee table (4 land impact). Try not to get too “nauti”, on the couch, which includes multiple sits, couples animations, and even adult animations. The super cute “Apple of my eye” wall art is NOT a Candy factory item! These come from Frogstar and are a FREE prize in the apple of my eye hunt, which starts tomorrow!

Here I have the ULTRA-RARE Hydrangea (1 land impact) on the left, the common tall yucca (2 land impact) in the center, and the common purple heart plant (3 land impact) on the right. Holding up the lovely plants are the equally lovely Torcello end tables by Frogstar.
