Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Anarchy HuntMid August… does this count as the “dog days of summer?” Be that as it may, the middle of the month means another big turnover of hunts. There are five new hunts that just started today, as well as a bunch that are ending. I’ve separated out the hunts calling it a wrap so that you can make a final run at them. You’ll find them at the end of the list today.

If you’d like to get involved with this fabulous game of hunting, there is no better time. There is a plethora of hunts currently underway. If you need a bit of help to get started FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages to help you with that. Yup, all this hunt stuff is either free or very nearly so. I don’t know about you, but my wardrobe and home have never looked better.

Let’s do this! Just poke the hunt names to get more information on each one.

See you out on the hunt!

Who needs colour on the beach? Rocking the monochrome!

Ok, I’m back with another Do the Dot Hunt post. I have to say, one of the things I love about a good hunt, there is always a store with great shoes in the hunt, so it’s so easy to put together an outfit. Especially when the hunt has a theme. Like polka dots! Have I mentioned how much i love polka dots? LOL.

For today’s post, I started with the very classy looking dress and hat set from Fi’s Creations. The lovely DO THE DOT Pencil-Dress & Hat set includes a fun floppy hat, and a form-fitting mesh dress, in standard sizes of course. Conveniently, the belt on the dress has a separate flower attachment, so you can choose to wear it, or not, I love options. The flower for the belt matches the flower on the hat, and has this great texture that makes them look like they are glittering as you move! To remind you, all gifts for the Do the Dot hunt are free, and you are looking for a white, with black dots, ball.

My shoes are the hunt gift that you can find at B!ASTA. They are the [ B! ] :MOVING TO SALAMANCA: Dotted sandals (for Slink Mid). Don’t you just love the name? While they could have been any colour, and I would have been happy, I really like the monochromatic look I get when combined with this dress, especially when my surroundings are so bright and colourful. Ohhh, I almost forgot to mention, for those of you who do not have SLink feet, there is also a pair for system feet! Everybody wins with these :)

That’s it for me for now, but I still have a few more hunt gifts I want to show you, so don’t worry. In the meantime, you can head over to the official hints and preview page for this hunt HERE. Until next time, TTFN!!!

Do-do-doin the Dot, woah, DeJaaVu!

So…I have said it a number of times, I’m sure, I love polka dots. Now, if I haven’t said it to you all, well, I sure thought it a lot, cause I do. You just have to ask my Mom, who dislikes polka dots…so I tease her about the cute things I find that are covered in polka dots! I’m so mean. Anywho….what is better than finding a cute freebie that has one of my favourite patterns all over it? Finding a hunt specifically for said pattern. That’s right, a hunt full of polka dots, called Do the Dot!! I plan to show you a few of the prizes over a couple posts, and while all the things I have gotten are really nice, I think the dress I am starting off with is one of my favourites.

reddot1

The offering from [ DeJaaVu ]  is the Samiya dress in Blue. It is a gorgeous mesh dress, in all the standard sizes, and I can’t say this enough, I love the colour combination of the material. The texture is really nicely done, with lovely little details such as seaming under the breasts and on the edges of the sleeves. Those little things sure make a dress feel complete. All items in the Do the Dot Hunt are free, so all you need to do is find the little black and white polka-dotted ball hidden somewhere in the [DeJaaVu ] store. The organizer’s of the hunt have kindly put up a page with hints and slurls, as well as preview pictures of the gifts. and because I am so nice, I will give you the address., HERE[DeJaaVu ] is store #42, so you will need to scroll down a bit. The hunt runs until Aug 31, so you have plenty of time. I had to take a closer picture of this dress for you all, I hope you can make out the details I mentioned.

reddot2

OK lovelies, just the one piece for now, but I promise, I will show off a few more for you all really soon. It’s so hard to choose what I am going to post about :) Until next time, TTFN!!!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Fairy Tale HuntGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, August 12.

There are lots of cool hunts going on. The Fairy Tale Hunt has jumped to the top of the list this week, with Dirty Diva holding the second spot, and the female path for Battle of the Sexes still making a strong showing. My partner and I have been planning on doing Kagami, but it’s rumored to be so popular that it’s hard to get in. I’m sure you can find a hunt that will give you hours of enjoyment.

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!

Better luck next time I guess….

I enjoy a man in a uniform, and I thought that if I set myself up in a cute outfit and hung around an area where these guys would frequent, that maybe I might catch their eye. So I ended up at an airport, posed my cutest pose, and sadly, no luck. On the bright side, I found some really great cheapies for my look that I think you will enjoy.

flight1

I got this sexy dress from the current round of the OMG Room for only L$1, and it is the Erika dress by ::JK Style:: . It is a mesh dress in standard sizes, though I had to go up a size, so they may fit a little smaller. It comes with a HUD to change the colour of the tiger stripe area and there are 6 different colours to choose from. I did show you the earrings and bracelets that come with this dress, HERE, and there is also a ring, that I have not shown. So all in all, it’s a pretty nice set up for a great price! Can’t beat that.

flight3

The necklace and earrings that I am wearing are the female hunt gift, En Route,  for the Around the Grid in 80 days hunt, from B!ASTA and was already shown HERE by Love. The little blue ‘gems’ in the golden hoops are actually globes, and I really love the tassel hanging from the necklace chain. I’ll remind you, this is a L$1 hunt, and for all you male readers, or women with males in their life…LOL, there is a men’s hunt prize hidden at B!ASTA as well, so everyone wins!

flight2

Last up, but definitely not the least, is the August group gift from 7 Deadly s[K]ins. This beautiful, slightly sunkissed skin has really pretty dark purple eyeshadow with a hint of gloss to the simple lips. I love when a skin is not heavily made-up, especially when it is so easy to add our own makeup. Unlike past group gifts, where the appliers for the skin were set out for you to buy separately, this time, the appliers are included for free, so almost all of you meshy-bits lovers should be happy :) I loved not having to try to tint my hands and feet ;) The gift is free, just slap on your group tag, and currently, the group is L$200 to join, but there have been many occasions lately where the group fee was lowered quite a bit or even free, for a short time. So if you can’t warrant the L$200, which is more than fair for this months gift alone, keep your eyes open, there might be another cheap or free join session. Oh, and there is a new male skin gift out as well, so guys, take a look!

OK, I think I have hung around here long enough with no uniformed man on my arm to show off. Oh well, maybe next time, or maybe I need to find a different spot. The hunt is on!

Until next time, TTFN :)

Can a Rock Star wear a cat print?

Happy Friday everyone!! How has your week been? Mine, hot……I was melting all week, as I do not have air conditioning in my house, but when you live in an area where 3/4 of the year is winter…it’s almost silly to have one. LOL. Anyways, enough about that, I have a few fun hunt gifts to show you :)

rockstar1

With it being the start of the month, there are loads of new hunts starting up, 2 of which, are the FemBoy Hunt, and the Cupcakes Anonymous Hunt. Insanya is participating in both of these hunts, and it just so happens that the 2 hunt items go together perfectly! First up is the :::insanya::: Kitten Shirt for the Cupcakes Anonymous Hunt. This is not a free hunt, each prize is set at L$5, but, when you find the cupcake for this shirt in the store, you will see that it is worth it. This super cute, kitty print, mesh shirt comes in standard sizes, and also comes with a texture change HUD with 10 different colours to choose from. The cat print was a win for me right off the bat, but the texture change HUD just made it even better :) The other hunt gift, from the FemBoy hunt, are the :::insanya::: Liquid Latex Capris – Leo – FemBoy Edition. Now, do not assume that this is a hunt just for the boys, as you can see, these capris are totally female friendly, they are system layer pants, and  even come with appliers for Physique, Wowmeh, Phatazz, and Booty. I think they make a great pair of leggings in this outfit. This is also not a free hunt, but each prize is only L$2.

rockstar2

Isn’t it awesome how well the 2 prizes work together, with a few well chosen, fun extras I had in my inventory, I kinda feel like the lead singer for an 80’s punk/pop rock band. Hmm..maybe I need to start up a band in SL…..I just need to come up with a great name, preferably with ‘Cats’ or ‘Kitty’ worked in there. Any suggestions? LOL

Well, until next time…Rock ON!!!

Be the best Bone Collector you can be, with flowers!

Hello my FabFreebers! So how has your weekend been? Mine, as usually, was pretty uneventuful..although, some would call it ‘Calle being lazy’ :P I like these kinds of days, because it means that I get a chance to do a little more exploring around SL than I normally get to do. One of the places on my list I’ve been wanting to take a look at, is the Isle of Dee, especially once I saw the notices about the Bone Collector Quest.  I’ll tell you a little about the quest, and then, of course, tell you about my outfit :)

BoneCollector1

He was to collect the bones and bring them to the God
so he may breathe life back into them.
But scared, the Bone Collector ran…
The bones and ingredients are scattered all over the Isle.

Are you brave enough to help?

When you first land at the Isle of Dee, to your left is the board where you will get your HUD and a notecard about the quest. Read the notecard, attach the HUD, and your adventure starts! The hunt for the objects will take you all over the Isle, so it really gives you a chance to see this lovely build. I will warn you, while the objects are pretty well in plain sight, the tricky part is deciphering the riddles to find out where each object is. Once you have collected all the items, and found where the Greenman dwells, there is a second riddle where you have to speak the magic word to receive your gifts. This was a fun little quest and probably took me about 2 hours from start to finish, with quite a bit of extra exploring. At the end of it,  you get a little reward of a super fun hat with a replica of the skeleton you were running around collecting pieces of, as well as a shoulder pet of said skeleton, and a home decor wall piece that will give you a yes, no or maybe answer to a question you ask it, again, with the cute little skeleton on it and the Greenman himself.

BoneCollector3

Now, what am I wearing? Well, the theme of the Isle of Dee is supposed to be around 1400’s, medieval England, so I wanted to look the part. While it is not mandatory, it is encouraged. There is a board at the landing site that will send you to a little area with freebies, including a full female and male av, but I just wanted to find myself a nice dress, so to the Marketplace I went. I ended up finding a great freebie, Ulla by Madison’s Creations. I was even able to tint all layers to make the dress more my own, and as you can see, I went with a nice dark green colour, a nod to the Greenman. It has all system layers, a prim skirt, and prim arm pieces, which I was not wearing. It is a nice simple dress that will work for most any kind of period roleplay.

BoneCollector2

Although I promised there would not be a time cruncher again, if you like the poses I am using, which includes the flower in my hand, it is a pack of 5 poses, each with a flower, from Vanity Poses, as a limited time L$1 gift. They recently moved their store and have redecorated, so they thought they would give out a present. Take a look across from them at Bounce This Poses, they have a freebie gift put out for you as well.

OK, Sunday is drawing to a close for me, and I still have things to do to get ready for that pesky thing called RL work…so, for now, I bid you adieu, until next time.

The quest fur cover, for furries and humans alike! (Part 2!)

RAWR! Hey fabbies! I am back again to show off more fuzzy goodness with the quest fur cover hunt! You can find my first post, which contains the starting location, as well as the first few gifts [HERE]! This hunt is a bit different from what we normally show off and is more geared towards the furry residents in SL! almost all of the gifts in this FREE hunt are compatible with humans and furries alike. So, shall we go on a quest?!

The quest fur cover, for furries and humans alike! (Part 2!)_002
Shop #6, Murder of ravens, has a really interesting “Blue enderbeast” full avatar as their hunt gift. You’ll have to check this one out on your own, but believe me, it’s definitely worth the time to grab! #7, Cubic cherry kre-ations, has a really neat black tail as their gift! The little fin and water drop pattern add great detail to this.

#8, Fujiwara’s world, has this great pair of aquatic-looking ears as their gift. These would be perfect for merfolk, dragons, fish, and many other applications.
