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*

Dotty dancing, at the beach, oh yeah!

Hi there, I am back, with more dotty finds from the Do the Dot Hunt! Are you tired of polka dots yet? The correct answer is never, btw :P

dancindot1

Heading back to lots of colour, this summery “O’Dots” Outfit  in pink, with tiny black dots, is from Broken Glass Boutique. Both pieces are mesh, in standard sizes, with the little buckle and flexi ribbons on the pants as separate attachments. I really like the fun and free feeling of this outfit, which can easily work for lounging around, or like I am doing right now…dancing on a beach deck. I did choose to wear a bra with the shirt (which also happened to be a polka dot pattern, but I did not get it on the hunt), just because I liked the effect of the little bit of black peeking out underneath.

dancindot2

I paired up my O’Dots outfit with the cute Dots Me Up Flats for SLink flat feet from Harmony Designs. These are, of course, another Do the Dot Hunt prize! You can never have too many polka dot shoes, in my opinion., and I really like the leather look of the texture on these, especially when you get up close.

So, I know you all know this already, but just to reiterate…all the prizes on the Do the Dot Hunt are free, and you are looking for a white and black polka dot ball. There is also a hints and previews page HERE.

dancindot3

Before I finish this post up, I wanted to show you all what the Essences group gift skin, Linka, for the Totally Top Shelf group, looked like with my shape. Tiana has already shown this beauty, HERE and HERE, and she looks gorgeous in it, but one of the things I love about all of us being able to look how we want…the same skin on 2 different shapes can look way different, so I thought you all would enjoy seeing the difference.

Ok, that is all for me for now, I am still trying to decide if you all want to see some more polka dot stuff or not, as there are lots more things I could show you from this hunt. I guess you all will just have to wait and see! LOL. Until then, TTFN!!

Time to kick those shoes off, but they are such nice shoes…oh the dilemma!

Phew…what a week it has been for me!  Even with as much fun as I have had doing the Do the Dot Hunt, tonight, all I wanted to do is just sit down with my shoes off, in a comfy chair. Lucky for me, this hunt has the right gifts for me to do just that :) LOL

seateddot1

I may as well start off with the comfy chair. {Sickly SWEET} is one of the several non-apparel stores participating in the Do the Dot Hunt, and I really like the simplicity of the design of the Helena Chair with the fun pattern of the ever-present theme of this hunt, dots :) The chair comes with 6 animations built-in, and depending on your body shape, they all can work well for any gender. Plus, there is an adjust button in the menu as well, so even if you find that you are sunk into the pillow, or hovering off to the left, you can adjust yourself to your heart’s content and fit perfectly. Remember, the gifts on this hunt are free, and you are looking for a ball that is white with black polka dots.

seateddot3

As much as I want to take my shoes off, as most people do at the end of a long day, I had troubles taking off these lovely shoes, Meshell Black-White, that are the hunt gift from Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes. Now, all you non-SLink feet loving gals out there, and I know there are many of you that just don’t vibe with mesh feet for whatever reason, these shoes are meant for the standard SL avatar feet! I’m just wearing my feet in the pics because I love the nail polish I have on my toes which is only for SLink feet, what can I say, I’m addicted :P That does not mean that I don’t still appreciate a great standard foot shoe, and with the classic black and white polka dot pattern, these babies are awesome.

seateddot4

Speaking of classic, the hunt gift from Sky is a total classic, with its cute little peplum skirt. This sweet dress is mesh, and comes in the standard sizes, and it is so easy to accessorize, it just lends itself to any colour and style of jewelry.

seateddot2

Lucky for me, there is a great jewelry gift from Freya’s Finest  for the hunt, a texture change choker and earrings, of which you can’t see the earrings through my hair. Every bit of these pieces is texture change. You can use the provided HUD to change the texture of the metal as well as the ring of jewels in the middle, but if you want to change the texture of the ribbon, you just need to click on it and a menu will pop-up, you can also change the metal and jewels texture through the menu as well. The earrings match the jeweled ring on the choker perfectly. The choker has mod ability, so you can make it fit perfectly.

Alright, I think my bed is now calling me, I’ve lounged around too much to want to do anything more tonight :P Oh, and since I have yet to mention this in my other posts about this hunt, I’ll tell you now; many of the stores have colourful polka-dot pathways showing you the area their gift is hidden in, so really, even if this is a first time hunt for you, it is a pretty hunter friendly one, especially when combined with the hints given HERE.

So, goodnight for now, I still have 1 or 2 more things I want to show you from this hunt, so until then, TTFN! *waves a shoe at you*

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.

dottybeach4

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.

dottybeach2

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 :)

dottybeach3

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!!!

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.

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.
