Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Picnic In The ParkSo many hunts, so little time. I keep telling myself that I’ll get to all these hunts but they just keep slipping though my schedule. If only real life could just be put on hold! My partner and I recently finished the Puss & Boots Hunt. It was a fun hunt, though I haven’t even started opening the boxes yet.

Anyway, there are lots of hunts to partake of if you have the time. Good luck with that!

If you haven’t gone out on a hunt before, it’s time to get your feet wet. Hunts are a great way to pick up a lot of free (or very nearly free) stuff for your inventory. It’s not so difficult and there’s help to get started. FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages with useful tips and tricks.

So peruse these hunts and find the one that’s right for you. Just click the names for more information on each hunt.

See you out on the hunt!

Much ♥’s

Hello again, my Dear FabFree Folks! I have returned from the Highlands! I told you, y’all couldn’t get rid of me that easily.  So while shuffling through vacation snaps and doing loads of laundry I knew I had to make time to jump back in world and visit the We ♥ Role Play May event.

WLRP_001

This round of We ♥ Role Play, is the Second Anniversary of the shopping event and tons of the designers have set out free and almost free ‘Happy Birthday’ gifts. Plus, many designers have out special items for 10L or less. First up is the Reverie Ring from Empyrean Forge. The gold ring comes with a HUD to change the center stone with six colors to choose from.

Next up is the Tinuviel Crown from Evie’s Closet. I love the delicate leaves and pearls on this crown. The gift includes a matching collar with the same ethereal build.

Last but not least is another sweet little ring from Fawny. The Sweet Rose ring in gold is another delicate piece and I love the simple style.

If you like role play or fantasy items you can’t miss this event!       Your taxi to the event!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Sign Rock & Cute Brii HuntGood morning fabulous friends! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, May 19.

The latest store hunt at Brii is topping the chart this week. It’s the Rock & Cute Hunt. Sorry guys, Brii is just for the gals, but it’s usually some pretty great stuff. It’s a L$1 hunt by the way.

For the guys, there’s Just For Him, a fair and sim hunt that just started yesterday. I haven’t checked it out yet, but I plan to.

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 and this ranking can (and probably will) change in a few hours.

See you out on the hunt!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Fi_s_Hunts_-_Gingham_Hunt_-_POSTER_IMAGEGood morning Fabulous Friends! There is a pretty darn good lineup of hunts going on right now, but some of them end TODAY. I’ve marked these for you just in case you want to get in on them at the last minute.

You should be able to find a hunt theme to enjoy. We have cats, whimsy, camping, the 50’s, antiques, and more as the currently running hunt themes. I’ve personally got the Gingham Hunt on my list of things to do, but gearing up for the SL12B Community Celebration (Second Life’s 12th birthday) is taking up a lot of my time. I’ll tell you more about that in a later article. I’m pretty excited about it.

If you haven’t gone out on a hunt before, what are you waiting for? Hunts are a great way to pick up a lot of free (or very nearly free) stuff for your inventory. It’s not so difficult and there’s help to get started. FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages with useful tips and tricks.

So take a look at these hunts and find the one that’s right for you. Just prod the names for more information on each hunt.

See you out on the hunt!

From Farmboy To Pop Icon!

WHC Farmboy 1

Greetings from the Riler family farm, where we grow all kinds of healthy food that I won’t eat. I remember once when I was a young pup and Mom asked me “Why won’t you eat fruits and vegetables? There has to be something that we can grow that you’ll eat.” Mom stared at me in complete exasperation. That was the day I learned parrots do not grow on trees. Also, I am told if they did, parrot trees would not grow in the Midwest. I have learned a lot about farming since then, most of it from countless hours of playing FarmVille on Facebook.

The most important lesson I learned about farming is: Do not dress like you have just fallen off the turnip truck. (Wait, if you actually did just fall off the turnip truck, you probably are a farmer anyway, so dressing like that is good, too.) My point is, you are going to want to dress the part and the FREE Gingham Hunt Prize from Firelight Creations/MAN STUFF is perfect for that handsome farmhand look. The prize consists of the Leroy mesh shirt in red gingham and the Cole jeans in light blue denim. The shirt is very nicely shaped and, together with the mesh Cole jeans, which I also consider a keeper, this is a very masculine look. MAN STUFF is the division of Firelight Creations we have to thank for this FREE hunt gift, but included in the same box is a matching women’s outfit from Firelight Creations. This hunt prize would be a very good start for a “Country” kind of outfit for club events and sims, in addition to being nice enough for your regular wardrobe. I may not be the kind of guy suited for farm work, but in this outfit, I could do commercials for brand name soda pop on TV. I could easily imagine myself drinking an ice cold can of pop, condensation dripping down my muscular chest, as my female co-workers in the office break room gawk in silent appreciation. Casual Friday – here I come! Kidding aside, this outfit looks great, and I could seriously sell a ton of pop in this.

For a more suburban look, I love this FREE thank you gift from Carami! It is the Trenton Tee and it comes in a set of five solid dark colors, changeable via hud. This is far more than just a basic mesh T-shirt, this FREE Gift is much more generous than that. The Trenton Tee comes in four variations; tucked, untucked, normal bottom untucked, and narrow bottom untucked. With choices like that, getting a great fit and the right look should not be hard at all. One last reason you need to pick up this FREE gift from Carami: It comes with a sixth bonus texture that isn’t on the hud. That bonus texture is the one I am wearing above, a very casual retro looking print T-shirt. Just take care to make a backup copy of the print tee, because once you change it using the hud, it is replaced with the color you have chosen. In short, Carami is giving you a great basic dark T-shirt in five colors and four variations plus a bonus printed T-shirt design! You can’t beat this kind of a thank you gift, thank you very much Carami.

One last thing I need to mention this week, the skin I am wearing is from Seven Deadly Skins. It is the free group gift for May and looks fantastic, I like it so much you will probably be seeing me in it often in the coming weeks. Seven Deadly Skins is a pay group, but the quality of their skins is excellent and the gifts and specials they have make it well worth joining. As of this moment the group is currently on sale for 50L and is a great pick up for both male and female avies. Well, I am all talked out. This blogging is nearly as hard as cartoon farming (but twice as rewarding). Until next time everyone, have fun and see you on the grid. —–WHC Riler

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL The Birds & The Bees Hunt SignIf you’re a hunter like me, you’re happy that there are always so many hunts going on at any given time. Heck, if it weren’t for hunting, my wardrobe wouldn’t be continually stuffed with new clothes. I very nearly never have to wear the same thing twice, though I do have my favorites… and for the most part, they all came from hunts!

If you’re not a hunter, you need to get in the game! Hunts are a great way to get all kinds of free (or very nearly free) stuff for your inventory. It’s not so difficult and there’s help to get started. FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages with useful tips and tricks.

So check out all the May hunts going on right now. Click the names for more information on each hunt.

See you out on the hunt!

As The April Showers Give Way To Flower Power!

whc hippie 1_001

I was a huge fan of Woodstock (I’m pretty sure he was on my first lunch box when I started kindergarten). My memories come flooding back when I think of those times. Of course, I was too young to enjoy the summer of love back then. Sure, I may have gone running off in a field, letting my diaper fall to the warm earth, and enjoying the feeling of a summer breeze embracing me, but I am also pretty sure I would have gotten spanked for it, too. Spanked very hard, the sixties didn’t reach my family home until around 1976. The good news is that for those of us who missed out on the groovy clothes and free love back then, Madcat Creations has designed an excellent prize for The Vintage Hunt. The Male Hippie Outfit is so brilliantly colored it actually looks like it is tie-dyed, as opposed to some similar items with multicolored fractal images on them. This outfit brought me instant faux flashbacks of dancing in the mud, grooving to the sounds of the Grateful Dead. Keep in mind one of the most popular club events in SL are Sixties-themed nights. This prize will come in very handy. The Vintage Hunt is not a free hunt, but the prizes are only 1L and if you look around Madcat Creations you might find the matching women’s version as well (they are boxed separately). My bracelet is a free group gift from one of the best Jewelry stores on SL: Earthstones. The Peace Friendship Bracelet goes great with this outfit, but be mindful that the group costs 250L to join. My campsite is a great hunt prize from Finishing Touches. Available for FREE on The Camping Trip Hunt , it comes with the table, chairs and a nice campfire with a pot of coffee warming. Truly a lovely hunt gift.

whc white wanted jacket

From a full-fledged freak out of colors, we step away from the pallet to admire something entirely different. This white leather jacket with the integrated grey T-shirt from Wanted knocked me out when I saw it. Luckily for all of us, it has just been put on their Midnight Mania board! I was originally planning to pair it with a nice pair of black jeans, or maybe with a frosted texture, which I am sure would look fantastic. However, Apple May Designs had something even better to go with it for 1L in their Recolors Of Spring Hunt. These white pants look great with the jacket, and since they are unbuttoned at the very top, adding a belt to fill the space between the jacket and the pants as shown is a great idea. The Recolors Of Spring Hunt is scheduled to end today so hurry to pick up these pants. Seriously, RUN! As I was preparing this post, I realized this same men’s jacket in XS might please a female avatar who has an androgynous appearance, or is going for a tomboy look. Since it’s an MM board, we guys could sure use your help locking it anyway.

So, as April showers give way to the full bloom of flower power, and your travels on the grid take you to new, exotic locations, please take a moment to reflect on what a lovely, wonderful world we live in. Peace and love.—–WHC Riler
