A modern twist

Good afternoon, FabFree readers,

a modern twist

I almost missed out on one of the very best Hunts going on in Second Life. The Twisted Hunt: Divination only runs until September 30th but the prizes are well worth the hurry. This is the ‘Modern Celtic Jacket’ from Goth 1c0 and it’s one such prize. The beautifully built jacket with hood comes in the standard mesh sizes XS-XL and has a good alpha layer. The hood with the rather hawkish look to it, is part of the jacket itself. There is also a lovely lady’s gift hidden at Goth 1c0 as well. But, as I said, the Hunt only lasts until the 30th so don’t delay.

I remain most sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture

Autumn Afternoon

Heyya FabFree!

Autumn Afternoon

I know it’s not Tuesday but I’m feeling a fantasy role play mood coming on. Maybe because I picked up this gorgeous frock from BlueMoon Enterprise for free. This is “Coreen” in a lovely rusty red and it’s the latest group gift for September. The dress comes in the standard mesh sizes XXS-L and has a good alpha layer. As with everything from BlueMoon I’ve seen, Coreen is simply stunning in build and in details.ย  Don’t miss this one!

I was also excited to see that Mina has put out a free gift for the Second Life Frees & Offers group. The group is free to join and you can pick up tons of great freebies all around the grid. Mina is giving us this sweet hair style named, appropriately, “Mena” this month. Mena comes in a materials and a no materials version in this lovely light brown color. If you haven’t discovered Mina this is a great way to try it out for free… and get addicted.๐Ÿ˜‰

As with all free gifts, these may not be around long so grab those group tags and get going!

In the Mood for Roleplay

In the Mood for Roleplay

It’s Sunday! And as usual, The White Armory has out a beautiful FREE group gift for us to enjoy. Roleplay is a staple in my Second Life to do list, and I was really excited about this Sunday’s FREE gift and wanted to show it to you, with a reminder to head down to The White Armory and pick up this gift before it’s gone. You’ll have until next Sunday, when a new FREE gift will be set out.

This gift includes the dress you see me wearing in the picture above, as well as system leggings and socks, which I opted out of due to my mesh body. I added a few other details, such as daggers and a pair of boots, and the outfit was perfect without adding the leggings. The dress is mesh and comes in all the standard sizes, making it a great addition to your roleplay wardrobe! Head to The White Armory and pick up this great gift!

As for me… I’m off to see what kind of roleplay trouble I can stir up at the sim I call my roleplay home now that I have the perfect outfit!๐Ÿ˜‰

Home From Work

Home From Work

When I saw that there was a hunt dedicated to work, working, and various jobs, I was really thrilled on a number of levels. I know that often there are contests in Second Life where you dress up to fit various themes of employment, but also I felt that this was a great opportunity for Second Life designers to show solidarity for unsung heroes. I was not disappointed. The hunt was full of wonderful things to celebrate jobs of all walks of life.

In the end, I decided to showcase this 1L nurse’s uniform from Blade & Rain. It is a one-piece mesh outfit that comes in all the standard sizes and includes a good alpha layer. What I appreciate most about it, is that it’s “real” nursing wear instead of the “sexy nurse” outfits you usually see. I really admire those who are hard at work in the medical field and it’s nice to have this option available for contests, cosplay, or what-have-you and for only 1L this is a great opportunity to pick up a great working outfit.

The Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It’s Off to Work I Go Hunt ends on Sept 16, so be sure to get out there and hunt down the goodies before it’s over!

Your Friday Hunt Report

openhighwayhuntGood Morning Fabulous Fans! The end of summer isn’t far off, but there’s still time to participate in some super hunts.

Too tired to actually run around in Second Life? You might want to try the Marketplace Hunt. It takes place entirely on the Marketplace. You just have to look through each online store to find the item that’s only L$5. With 44 stops, that’s a lot of very reasonable shopping.

I love road trip movies, so I’m planning to go out on the Open Highway Hunt. It’s a tiny little hunt with only nine stops, so it should only take about an hour.

If those don’t get you excited, there are plenty of other hunts to choose from. Click the hunt names below until you find the one that’s just right for you.

You say you’re new to hunting? Need help learning the ropes?
Both FabFreeย and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.

Your Friday Hunt Report

WS-Hunt-Logo-Aug-16There are some nifty sim and store hunts going on right now. The Botanica Butterfly Hunt just began a couple of days ago and it’s always fun to run around Botanica. I’m told that this hunt is also educational.

My partner and I have been working on the massive Around The Grid in 80 Days hunt. With 146 stores, it’s going to take us a few days to complete, but we have until the end of September, so we should make it.

Speaking of big hunts, you’ll want to get an early start on the Womenstuff Hunt. It has 150 stops, so bring some friends and bring some lunch, because this one is going to take you a while.

Not seeing the perfect hunt for you? Check out the big boodle of hunts that are coming in the next couple of months!

Get Leid HuntGood Morning Fabulous Fans! We’re seeing lots more sim and store hunts crop up lately. Not only are these hunts fun and rewarding, but you can usually knock them out in a very short time, often less than an hour. Halloween (well October in general) is a big big time for store hunts so there will be lots more of these cropping up in six weeks or so.

There are all sorts of hunts to choose from on these “hot August nights.” Just click the hunt names below and you can find out all about them. I’m sure you can find one that’s just the ticket for your sense of style.

Enchantress

Hey FabFree!

Enchantress

I guess this fantasy mood is still going strong with me. I took a last minute trip over to the Epiphany event and this was the Gacha that I just played and played.ย  This is the ‘Mythiara’ย Enchantress gownย from Fallen gods Inc. and Faida. The Gacha slips in at 75L per play and has three rare sets of the long gown and 25 common short dresses plus a set of bracers and leg guards. There is also a leather collar that is a free gift for everyone.

The dresses are made to fit the Maitreya mesh body but with a little fussing and a spare alpha layer from my inventory, I got it to work on my system body.

My beautiful new hair style is also from the Epiphany event. This is ‘Atalie’ from Truth Hair. The gacha features three styles of lovely long hair and two unicorn horn accessories. There are 18 commons and 3 rares all for 50L per play.

Last but not least are my little dragon friends. These are ‘Diabolic Dragonlings’ from Darkend Stare. There are 18 commons with each color having both a static shoulder pet and an animated flying pet plus 2 static decor rares. I personally think they’re more cute than demonic… but I can be odd. One quick note. Both of my dragonlings here are the shoulder pets. I edited ‘Aro’ so he’d sit on my arm for the picture.

All of my treasures today can be found at the Epiphany Event but it only runs until August 15th so hurry hurry, my dears!

Noir

I’m still feeling sort of ‘fantasy fantastic’ today… or would that be Fabulous Fantasy?

Noir

Anyway. I found a new to me area that is having a nifty little hunt: The Fall of Man Sim. Kind of a foreboding name but you’ll find all sorts of fun fantasy type shops there and until August 31, a Back to School Hunt! I found this gorgeous black gown and attached cape from Oi Bae! and its the 1L prize for the hunt. This is the ‘Dragon Gown’ and it comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL. The belt is a separate piece and it also comes in XS-XL.

I’m going to steal something Gabriel found while checking out the L’Homme group gifts. The butterflies I’m dancing with today are the free gift from Zibska for the L’Homme readers. “Flurtur Noir” comes withย the large ‘orbit’ of black butterflies, plus a smaller orbit from one shoulder. The gift also includes a lovely crown made of black butterflies that I’m not wearing today. The L’Homme group is free to join and you can jo9in from the kiosk in the participating merchants shops.

 

Edited to fix my misspelling the name of the store! Oi indeed… guess I needed another cup of coffee before I blogged๐Ÿ˜›

Aries

Heyya FabFree!

Aries

It’s Saturday and that means it’s Juli’s Hunt Day!ย  I’m back on the Women’s Stuff Hunt because, wow, there’s some nifty prizes for this round! My first show-off is from BlueMoon Enterprise which never fails to amaze. This is the ‘Solas’ gown and it’s the free Women’s Stuff Hunt prize. This gorgeous gown comes in Mesh sizes XXS-L and has a good alpha layer. The bow and the gauzy skirts are all a very delicate looking Flexi. Normally, I’m not crazy about Flexi but this is so very well made it just flows and I love it. The gown can be worn without the Flexi pieces for a more modern sleek look as well.

In my wanders around the grid, I stopped in to Blues Hair to see what was new and I was fortunate enough to snag one of the freeย Lucky Board prizes that perfectly matches with my new gown. This is ‘Aries’ and it includes the fantastic horns you see.ย The gift comes with a HUD for the horns containing ten natural looking colors. The hair’s HUD also has ten pretty pastel colors that come in ‘roots’ and regular versions. One note, the hair and the horns are one item and they cannot be worn separately.

The Women’s Stuff Hunt runs until August 31 so get out there and hunt! One quick note – Some of the designers in the Women’s Stuff Hunt have placed their prizes for 1L or for 0L… either way you’re going to get a really great gift!๐Ÿ™‚
