Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Bunny BluesEggs, eggs, and more eggs!  It seems like half the stores in Second Life are having an Easter egg hunt. Okay, maybe not HALF, but a lot of them. We’ve been adding a couple of new Easter egg hunts to the list every day for the past week. Sooooo… if you love Easter, then you’re going to love this edition of Your Friday Hunt Report.

If you haven’t gone on a hunt yet, check out the marvelous guides at FabFree and HUNT SL. It’s easy to get going and you’ll find lots of free and very low cost goodies just by following some clues and running around like a crazy person. Ha! It’s all good fun, and you don’t REALLY have to run. You can walk sedately.

Here are the notable hunts around the grid today, April 18th, 2014. Just tap the hunt names for more information on each.

See you out on the hunt!

Find the umbrellas at the spring market fair!

Hey fabbies! The spring market fair at old europe started recently, and there are a ton of wonderful designers showcasing their spring-themed products at the event. In addition to the abundance of springy goods, most of the designers have out a special free gift hidden somewhere on the sim in a little umbrella! I’ve chosen a few of my favourites to show you, but there are a TON more gifts to be found (NOTE: Hunt related LM’s in this post will lead you to the EVENT, not the designers main store location because the hunt is SIM-WIDE, not grid-wide!).

Morea style has out this lovely soft cream coloured dress as their gift. I didn’t want to take this off, it’s so floaty and light, and would be perfect for a picnic or a day at the beach!

Bailey’s gift is this high-waisted shorts and black top combo, which includes appliers for lolas tangos!

If you’re looking for accessories instead of clothes, then you should grab the necklace from Goddess fantasies and the eyes from Amacci. The necklace is resize scripted, and the eyes come in 3 system layer sizes, 2 types (regular and dark) AND pair of mesh eyes!

 

Have fun shopping, hunting, and be sure to stay fabulous!

You’re so vain!

The latest hunt from the sinister goth crew is centered around the sin vanity. I had a great time putting together a few outfits from the pieces that make me look aaaaaabsolutely gorgeous! This hunt has just about everything you could possibly need to put together a whole outfit including a hair, multiple skins, nails, clothing (for him and her!), and accessories!

You're so vain_001

 

Can’t be gorgeous without an amazing skin, right? This skin comes from Pixystix, and is gift #13 in the hunt. My equally gorgeous (and fluffy!) hair is from stop #38, LaNoir Soleil designs. Even my eyes are a gift! These come from VersaEye, stop #44, and the gift package includes mesh eyes in several sizes (even petite!) and system eyes as well!

You're so vain_002

 

Mirror mirror, in my hand, who’s the prettiest in all the land? Why me, of course! My choker, which is colour change via menu, is a gift from Souzou Ein, and is gift #12. Here I’ve paired it with the female gift from #48, No salvation designs, and I’m reflecting on my outer beauty with gift #16, which is from Witches & rats, and includes the pose and the mesh handheld mirror!

You're so vain_003

My second outfit includes the very sexy corset dress from Toxic High, which is gift #8

You're so vain_004

 

Next we have the female gift from #17, Wicked sin creations. There are gifts for both genders in the pack, and the female gift comes with both the leather skirt I’m wearing and the sweater top.

You're so vain_005

 

and finally, last but most certainly not least, here we have gift #29, which is from Cae.b!

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!

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.

What The Heck, Let’s Go Aztec

Snapshot_001

Hey Fabulouses!  I have put together a cute little outfit today with some things I found around the grid – hope you like it!

I’m gonna start with the skirt, because that is what inspired my look today.  I found the Tribal Skater Skirt as a free Jack or Jill Hunt prize at Reign.  I had been trying to find a top that went with it, and came across this one while I was in Ehr last night.  The Women’s Sweater in cream is a group gift (free to join).

You can find the cute Vintage Camera, priced at a 15L Gacha at Pixicats, and a gorgeous set of four V-Day rings for 1L at Moon Amore.  The photo shown below only displays one of them, but each is unique and equally as adorable.

Hope you are enjoying your day so far!  Back soon with more :)

Hunt Time At HolliPocket!

I ended up in HolliPocket last night as I was wandering and discovered that the store was part of quite a few different hunts. Some run out at the end of the month, so come by to get them soon!

My favourite thing about the hunts they are in is this Babydoll Dress! I think its one of my favourite mesh pieces ever made in SL. You can dress it up so many different ways its perfect and it comes in flat chested options too which is a great little addition. It is the prize in several different hunts and so you can start a little collection of different colours!

Also.. this hair from Calico that is in the Winter Solstice Hunt is just amazing and I love that you can wear the forehead jewellery piece seperately.


.HAIR. Eira Hair by Calico [FREE / Nevermore Winter Solstice Hunt]
.DRESS. Babydoll Slip (Cherry) by HolliPocket [L$1 / I Lost My Mitten Hunt (Jan 6th)]

And I just had to show you this awesome Cheshire Cat Bag that was on sale for only L$50! I love it so much. It comes with several different placements on how to wear it including options for left or right arm!

Also to be found at the HolliPocket store in a few other hunts are these shorts! These come with Phat Azz appliers so if you use this attachment, these will be wearable for you!
