Your Friday Hunt Report

MOH6 - FAREWELL SUMMER HUNTI’m sure I’ve mentioned this before, but I still have a lot of fun going out hunting. My partner and I go together while we’re discussing the hints via Skype, and fan out looking for the hunt prizes. Hunting in pairs and groups makes it a social event! Then there’s all the free (or very low cost) stuff that we come home with, so it’s a win-win.

There are some really good hunts going on right now. I’m planning to complete the Men Only Hunt 6 before it’s over, and then maybe take a run at the Bleeping Bunny Hunt 3. These are just the ones at the top of my own personal selections. I’m sure that you too can find a hunt or two to love as well. So take a gander at all these hunts and then check a few of them out.

New to hunting? Both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.

It’s Just a Nerdy Day for You and Me in Paradise

Bookish

Who me? Oh I’m just hanging out at the library, posing with the books, and lookin’ mighty cute while doing so! All silliness aside, the items on the Nerdy Girl cart at The Cart Sale are seriously cute, not to mention nerdy. On the Nerdy Girl cart you’ll find this “I’d Ship That” shirt, along with several other fun graphic tees. Each of the shirts includes a system layer, an omega applier, and a Slink applier. Also, I have to admit I was pretty excited to see the Harry Potter themed nail polish set. My dork side is loving it! There are several “nerd” themed nail palates, and like the t-shirts they are just 10 lindens each. Lastly, while shopping the Nerdy Girl cart you’ll also find a few well done tattoos that any true nerd would be excited to have.

The Radio Grind at the Wash Cart Sale shows me I don’t need clothes to paint.

Well look at this, it’s Thursday already! I have to admit, my week didn’t start out the best, I was feeling a little under the weather. When feeling like that, there are a few things that make me feel better…finding stuff to show all you fab readers, being creative, and cats. Yup, you heard me. So for my feature post this week, I was able to combine all 3! Go me!

painting1

First of all, I have to tell you about my super cute outfit…well, I’ll call it an outfit, but in reality, it’s a painter’s smock, a cute bra and pantie set, and paint, lot’s of it, which inspired my colourful painting of cats. My Painted Lady look is courtesy of The Rebakery for Radio Grind at The Wash Cart sale that I know you all know is still going on. For a whole L$10, you get a multitude of system layers of body paint, from your head, to your hands to your legs. A bra and pantie set, on your underwear layers, and a mesh smock in the standard sizes. I love the little paint smudges you can have on your face, in RL, I would totally have paint on my face. Here is the Direct TP to the Radio Grind Cart. I will put a picture of the Cart itself at the end of this post so you can check out the other fun offerings they have.

The next piece to my puzzle was a new skin, and with it being the start of another month, new, free group gifts abound! I went with the lovely Gardenia skin from WoW Skins, which is the new September group gift. You get this skin in every tone, with cleavage and noncleavage versions of each. I happen to be wearing tan, without cleavage. For a one time fee of L$350, you can join their group and grab up this beauty, not to mention a box of past group gifts sitting right beside the new one, as well as have access to group only midnight manias, and lucky letter boards. Don’t you just love the pretty pale pink of the lips? This is a very natural look, which I really gravitate towards.

painting2

My final piece, is the fun hair I have on. It is another free group gift, this time from Elikatira. The Lena hair, with the exclusives texture hud that you won’t be able to buy, was sent out to group members on the 1st. It is unrigged mesh, so you can adjust it to fit practically any size head. The group is L$250 to join, but as that is the price of one pack of hair, it pays for itself immediately! I love a great short hairstyle. You may see this on me quite often :)

painting4

See, I was able to get creative, albeit a little messy, paint some cats, and show off some wonderful stuff for all you fabulous readers! Yup, made me feel much, much better. OK, I am off for now, but you know I will be back. Until next time, TTFN *waves*

Precious Nobility

Today I feel like a queen… and I have just the stuff to make you feel like one too. A cart wash dress here… some group gifts there… and it will all come together like a Precious Noble Creation.

Precious Nobility [2]

If you haven’t stopped by the Precious Designs Cart at the Cart Wash sale yet, you simply do NOT want to miss out on the offerings this designer has set out for you at just 10L each. In the picture above, I am showcasing the Fire Work dress for you in all its glory and fine detail. For just 10L the dress comes in all the standard mesh sizes, plus fitted mesh as well as custom mesh fits for Maitreya and Slink Bodies AND a color change hud with SIX color options — that’s a lot of dress for 10L!

You’ll also notice my noble gold crown, courtesy of the newly opened Noble Creations. It has rich detail fitting for any queen, princess, goddess, lover of fantasy, or roleplayer and has a nifty resize script included. It is one of several FREE Inauguration Group Gifts (the group is FREE to join) that they are offering for their store’s opening.

Precious Nobility [1]

Noble Creations is also giving out several other fabulous FREE Inauguration Group Gifts to celebrate their opening and you won’t want to miss out. Above you can see the intricately detailed and carved Antique Coffee Table with its inlaid wood and added knobs in different colors and sizes on the sides. This was a paired gift that came with the elaborate Antique Sofa that Astrid is reclining on, which includes single sits and lays for females and males as well as a few couple cuddles. Both of these items were FREE, low prim, and also included a color change hud with four color choices!

In addition, behind Astrid you will see a rich and thick Noble Creations Mesh Curtain. Just like the Antique Sofa, this too is a FREE Inauguration Group Gift, is low prim, and comes with a color change hud with four color choices, and is also resizable to add to its versatility. Be sure to grab these gifts up before they are gone!

While you are at it, make sure to stop by the Precious Designs Cart at the Cart Wash Sale. These outfits are simply fit for a queen! Or at least any Second Life Fashionista! Check out the offerings on the cart below!

On The Hunt Once Again!

whc moh razor3_001

Hello, everyone. Welcome to my favorite time of the year in Second Life (which is any time a major men’s clothing hunt is going on). Everyone knows I have been waiting for this hunt for weeks and I am happy to say it has been a highly enjoyable event, providing some excellent quality items. Before describing the items in the above picture, I would like you to click on it. That will bring you to my flickr. Then, click once more to see the picture in its’ original resolution. The reason I invite you to do this is because the more detailed picture, the more impressed you will be with the items’ quality.

The first item I want to show you from The Men’s Only Hunt is the tattoo I am wearing. Honestly, it is the best, most comprehensive FREE gift tattoo I have ever seen. The level of detail in this tattoo is simply unbelievable! Take a close look at the About That Life Tattoo & Sleeves from Inhale and you will probably understand why I am so excited. While the level of detail packed in this tat makes it an excellent hunt gift, there is something else that makes it a must-have hunt item. In addition to being wearable for regular basic avies, it also contains appliers for Omega, Signature and TMP Mesh avies! Inhale has even included a Slink hands version! This is a fantastic tattoo and, if you later decide to go with a Mesh avatar, it is highly likely you will still be able to wear it. The Men’s Only Hunt is a FREE hunt and will be going on until September 13th. Look for the cool, frothy beer hunt object to find your gift. Don’t miss out on this tat!

This is the first time I am posting this style of sweatpants. While undoubtedly popular, they aren’t my usual style in real life. Until now, I have never gotten one in a hunt that was so excellent that I literally HAD to post them! Take a look at these Blue Mack Sweats, the FREE Men’s Only Hunt prize from Razor. I am a long-time fan of their high quality, edgy style of street wear. When I unpacked these sweatpants, I was blown away with their first-rate quality. The material looks soft, and the mesh design looks highly realistic, right down to having a great amount of pocket space. Combine that with the brilliant blue and black colors of the sweatpants and you have another must pickup from The Men’s Only Hunt. I know many Fab Free readers will be interested to learn that this gift includes a FEMALE VERSION in addition to the male one. It isn’t every day I get to catch the ladies’ attention, so thank you very much Razor!

A friend of mine who helped me on the hunt was looking for a cool pair of sunglasses. The Farewell Summer Glasses from 7Mad;Ravens fit the bill perfectly. Dark and stylish, this FREE Men’s Only Hunt gift has a very subtle touch of color across the top of the frame, and WOW, do I love that touch! These glasses look superb and are another item from the above pic that will impress you more the closer you look.

I couldn’t resist going all out for the pic, so I included the FREE Men’s Only Hunt gift from Legal Insanity for a touch of street cred. The Biker Necklace is a tough-looking heavy pair of gold chains. Often gold jewelry on SL can look unrealistic, but this necklace does not suffer from the common mistake of being overly yellow and bright. I was truly impressed with the looks of this pixel treasure from the fine folks at Legal Insanity and I hope you will enjoy it too.

The final item to highlight in the above picture is my new bracelet. A FREE Men’s Only Hunt gift from Apple May Designs, the Men’s Forged Cuffs look fantastic. The texture gives it a hammered by hand look, making it appear to be a piece of finely crafted jewelry. My picture does not even showcase the entire gift. Although I show it on my right wrist alone, the hunt prize actually includes both right and left wrist versions. Both come in two colors: chocolate bronze and steel finish. It is a highly versatile hunt gift, and yet another reason you should be doing the Men’s Only Hunt this month!

whc laundry day 1_001

I usually wear the same type of clothing in Second Life that I would wear in real life, simple like soft cotton T-Shirts and jeans, or something smart and dressy looking. A perfect example of my kind of T-Shirt is this wonderfully textured Dexter Mesh Tee from Sharp By [ZD]. Emblazoned with the words “Laundry Today OR naked tomorrow,” I even feel as if it fits into my rl lifestyle. I am naked a lot of the time, but I am not actually a naturist. I am just too lazy to do laundry very often. For all the guys out there that totally understand where I am coming from, this T-Shirt is for you. It comes in three Mesh sizes and two FitMesh ones, and is actually pre-stained to give it that authentic laundry day apparel look! Like the other items from the Men’s Only Hunt this month, it is FREE for the taking.

Lately, I have been posting a surprising amount of hair. Usually, male hair is a very tough find for free or even extremely inexpensive. It is one of the main challenges as far as building a new male avy for a reasonable price. I don’t know why we have been blessed with such a wide variety of good free hair lately, but I am quite happy about it. My wash day hair is the new FREE Men’s Only Hunt gift from Ayashi. Their Toma hair in black was perfect for this pic, just the right mix of spiky and unkempt for the Laundromat. Remember, for this and all the other items on the Men’s Only Hunt, the hunt object you are looking for is a cool, frothy beer.

Finally, I couldn’t hit the “send” button on this post without mentioning the pose I used for the wash day picture. It is one of three poses included in the FREE Men’s Only Hunt gift from Verocity! It looks excellent and is a pose I will undoubtedly use many more times over the years to show off men’s garments.

Hopefully, that’s enough to tempt you to discover the joys of hunting in Second Life. With patience, it can be highly rewarding. Stay tuned for next week’s continued coverage of The Men’s Only Hunt where I will try to tempt you into hunting by sharing more of the rich treasures to be had for FREE! Until then my friends, see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler

Is it Wine-O-Clock Yet?

Vintage & Cool FairHello Fab Free’rs! If you haven’t been out to the Vintage & Cool Fair, I strongly recommend you go.  The fair ends in just 3 days, and it’s enormous, but well worth the visit. Several of the designers have set out inexpensive gifts along with their Vintage & Cool Fair exclusives. I was able to put together almost this complete look using just a few of the gifts I came across. There are several other gifts that are equally nice, however these ones just happened to go together so well.

Vintage & Cool Gifts

Starting from top to bottom, I love these sort of bohemian feathered earrings. They are a FREE Vintage & Cool Fair gift from Mon Cheri. This great gift includes the earrings in this ruby color shown, as well as black, pink, and azure. Next, the septum piercing is dollarbie a Vintage & Cool Fair gift from Macabre. I really like how delicate it looks, almost like lace. I think a lot of septum piercings can be very dramatic, this one has an almost dainty look to it.

One key to a great wardrobe is to have several base pieces that you can mix and match. This pencil skirt is just that, you could easily dress it up or down. The skirt is the Vintage & Cool Fair gift from [trs] that you can pick up for just 1 linden. I really like the color, it’s perfect for fall. The skirt is partial mesh, and includes a system layer and an omega applier. Finally, how pretty are these shoes?! I think they look very stylish on. These heels are a dollarbie Vintage & Cool Fair gift from Essenz, and in the box you get a Slink fit pair, and a Maitreya fit pair, also there is a color change hud for the metal bits. I really like this outfit, and it cost next to nothing, I hope you like it too!

Here are the details, Enjoy!
