Your Friday Hunt Report

 

HUNT SL Renaissance Hunt IVThere are lots of great hunts going on right now, and your Friday Hunt Report is here to tell you all about them. I’ve only been on a fraction of these hunts, but I did just finish unpacking all the boxes I got on the Renaissance Hunt. I ended up with some fabulous furniture for my next house remodel!

I encourage you to give hunting a try if you haven’t already done so. It’s a fun way to see a lot of stores on the  Second Life grid, and you will end up with a lot of free (or almost free) stuff. FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages with tips to help get you started. With all these great hunts going on, there’s no time like the present.

So let’s get to the hunts shall we?  Click the hunt names here to get more information on each one.

See you out on the hunt!

We’ve got gypsy style going on!

Howdy lovlies!! I have drug Shamic up to my picture-taking platform this evening, as he and I recently went over to MishMash and got some great free outfits for the Travelling with Gypsies Hunt, so of course he needed to model his with me.

The Travelling with Gypsies Hunt is a free hunt that has some great gypsy themed gifts. Don’t Shamic and I look cute together? The female MishMash hunt gift comes with this gorgeous mesh maxi skirt with sash (of which there are standard sized mesh, and a fitted mesh version), and your choice of 4 different tops; 1 mesh, rouched blouse, and 3 system layer tops, pictures of all 4, closeup, are below. You also get 3 chain necklaces, 1 choker necklace, a pair of earrings, and a pair of arm cuffs, and bracelets. The necklaces are fun, as you can wear all 4 of them at once since they are all of differing lengths.

Shamic’s outfit, while it does not come with as many top options, is just as nice. The drawstring pants, and vest, are both mesh, in the standard sizes, and you also get the 3, chain necklaces, earrings and arm bands. I just love the texture on the vest, you really do need to see it in person.

gypsystyle3

Both outfits are in a single hunt item, and the hint for this gift is : “Don’t step on me!!!” There is a blog page that has hints for each store as well as preview pictures, HERE. There are a lot of nice gifts for this hunt, with quite a few mens gifts. I love when a hunt has a lot of variety :) You have until September 30 to go grab these gifts, so don’t wait too long, it will be over before you know it.

Alrighty, that is it for us, but I will be back soon :) Until then, TTFN!

Pink Daze

Snapshot_006
Good evening Fabulouses!  I have yet another post for you tonight!  I must be on a roll ;D.  Tonight I am showing you the Lyrical B!zarre Templates Daze Dress that you can pick up for free by locating the hidden cupcake at FabFree Headquarters for The FabFree 7th Birthday Hunt.  If you happened to pick this dress up within the first week of the hunt, and you opened up the package to find that the alpha layer was missing, please do go back and pick it up again.  The designer has added in the missing alpha and the dress is simply adorable!

The FabFree 7th Birthday Hunt ends tomorrow, September 16th and midnight SLT, so make sure you take some time to pick them all up before they are gone for good!  If you’d like to see the full prize preview, you can visit THIS LINK, which is a detailed hunt page that Tiana put together for us!

Dancing Barefoot in leaves…with sandals.

I told you I would be back! This time I have a few group gifts, and a hunt gift to show you, so freebie lovers, rejoice! I know, that is every single one of you lovely readers, really though, who doesn’t love a good freebie?

bohodancing1

I’m starting out with this really cute Boho Blouse from B!ASTA. The [ B! ] :DANCING BAREFOOT: Boho blouse, comes with a texture change hud, and allows you to change the colour of your top, with 7 different choices. It is mesh, and comes in the standard sizes. It is part of the “Travel with the Gypsies” hunt, which started Sept. 7th, and runs until Sept. 30th, and all gifts for this hunt are free. So you are going to have to do a little hunting in store to find it, but here’s a hint to help : “You better check if you got a hole in your pocket – I guess you have lost that coin there, while we were drinking our hot chocolate?”

bohodancing2

To go with my lovely shirt, I found these ‘not so boho’ skinny jeans as a group gift from Wertina. Who says you can’t mix styles? LOL. These lovely, green jeans are mesh, with the standard sizes all included. There are several other group gifts for you to grab while there as well, including the poppy dress,originally shown by Love HERE. The group is free to join, and all the group gifts are free. I may even be back to show you another gift tomorrow ;)

bohodancing4

To top my look off, I needed some fun, bright coloured earrings. Luckily, [free bird] had me covered. Like Wertina, [free bird] keeps many of their previous group gifts out for everyone. One of these past gifts, are the lovely Splash of Color Earrings. With so many colours on them, they will go with practically any outfit you put together. The group is free to join, and the gifts are free, so make sure you grab all the other wonderful gifts while you are there for these earrings.

bohodancing3

Whew…I do believe that I am totally done for the day now. My Saturday was unusually busy, and my bed is calling my name, very loudly. So, I hope you all have a great night, and I will most definitely be back tomorrow. Until then, you know the drill…TTFN *waves*

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!

Your Friday Hunt Report

Green Mire IIIt’s Friday Fabulous Fans! That means it’s time to tell  you about the plethora of hunts going on. Yes, I do mean plethora! I have a whole big list of kick-ass hunts for you, and if you can’t find a theme you like… well, you’re not trying hard enough *grin*. Royalty, fantasy, alien abductions, school… the various hunt themes abound.

New to the hunt game? FabFree and HUNT SL have pages devoted to getting you started. You should beware however… hunting can be highly addictive, and your inventory may get bloated with all that free (or very nearly free) stuff.

Let’s get going! Just prod the hunt names to get more information on each one.

See you out on the hunt!

You’ve Been Conjured

Snapshot_004Greetings Fabulous Readers :)  I know usually I show you free wearables, whether they be skin, clothing, hair or accessories, but today I wanted to show off a couple of free Twisted Hunt prop and pose prizes that I had a lot of fun with up in the FabFree sky!

With Halloween just around the corner, I am sure that even the clumsiest of witches can make use of the enchanting Demon Conjure Circle from Paper Moon and the {Rook} Conjuring Pose Set.  Heck, I got it to work, and I am only a pretend witch.

The Paper Moon  Demon Conjure Circle has a land impact of eight prims and includes the chalk circle, flickering candles and alter.  The hat is not included, I just tossed it off my head when it kept falling in my face during the hand waving frenzy which I was sure should accompany the incantation I was spelling so jubilantly, and it landed there.  I decided that I was going to conjure up spirits of good will, instead of demons, but I guess it’s your call what you’d like to conjure even though it sounds like a heck of a mess to clean up after.  When my spirit was finally here, it was in the form Tiana Omizu who really is a spirit of good will since she politely posed for me even though I was taking f o r e v v v v e r r r r r r.  (Thank you Tiana!!)

The {Rook} Conjuring Pose Set is just two prims and includes the double pose with the spell paper above my head.  This is modifiable so you can edit the pose or the paper around if need be for positioning.

You can find more information about The Twisted Hunt at their official blog.
