Your Friday Hunt Report

pastelpartyhuntIt’s Friday, so time once again to let you in on all the hunts going on right now, PLUS the ones that will be happening in the weeks to come. So much hunt goodness… so little time!

You’ve got about a week left for all of the July hunts, so you might want to check out hunts like the Pastel Party Hunt, Beached Bunny, or Around The Grid in 80 Days (now in its fourth installment). I’m also curious about the Raining Tacos Hunt. That sounds weird but fun to me.

If you poke the names here in this post, you’ll receive all the pertinent information about each hunt.

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

Fire and Ash

Hello again, Fabfree.

fire and ash

As I mentioned in my last post, I have been participating in several Hunts this week and I needed to stop in and show you this elegant vintage suit from Fire and Ash Design. This is ‘Mobster’ in black and red and it’s the 1L prize for the ‘For Him Hunt 2’  ‘Mobster’ comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL and is all one piece. The hat is a separate item and has a resize script to get the right fit. While the suit is called Mobster and it certainly does harken back to the 1930s, I feel it would make an excellent Steampunk look or really any vintage outfit.

The ‘For Him Hunt runs until July 31st so don’t delay.

I remain most sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture

Nerdy Girl in-world Closing Sale

Super Heroes

It’s hard to see much beloved stores close their doors in Second Life… and Nerdy Girl has announced that she will be moving the in-world store to the Marketplace to pursue new adventures after July 12th. In the meantime, as a bit of a farewell gift to all the loyal customers who love nerdology, the in-world store is having a last hoorah and closing sale before it moves to the marketplace… a bonus for all of us loyal shoppers:)

Nerdy Girl has put out all the old gifts for one thing, so if you are a group member, stop by and pick up any you missed (the join fee is only 25L if you are not already a member, and with all the goodies, it’s worth joining).

In addition, all store merchandise is priced at 25L or lower, excluding gachas. In salute to the Nerdy ways, Loki and I decided to go as Nerd Heroes. I am not convinced that he got it quite right, but then he thinks I didn’t do it right either… we agreed to disagree, since Rainbow Brite is my favorite, and he said Superman was super.

My rainbow bright costume includes the mesh skirt, applier top and leggings, and the bow (which comes in a left, center, or right fit). For 25L, it’s quite a deal!

Loki’s mesh hoodie in all the standard sizes is quite a find indeed, as there is a texture change hud included. The hud changes the t-shirt and hoodie separately, for lots of nerd fun… hero symbols on the shirt and hoodie all separate for whatever hero you want to be that day. For 25L, there’s a hero in every guy just waiting to come out!

Dragon Lord

Greetings FabulouslyFree Friends,

Dragon Lord

Julianna had to twist my arm to get me to try some of these ‘role play’ outfits at first. And, frankly, some of what’s out there on the Grid is… well… less than elegant. However this one from Sparrow By Design is rather suave. This is “DragonLord” and it’s the free prize for the Silk Road Hunt. The coat and the pants are separate items but they share the same alpha layer. Each piece comes as one FitMesh item. I found the FitMesh to be extremely well made and fit very well indeed.

My … unorthodox head gear is from Aii: The Ugly and Beautiful. I protested but Julianna insisted that a dragon Lord needed horns.  At least these are very very impressive. The “Holy Devil” horns come in both gold and silver and are unrigged Mesh for ease of adjustment. You can find them as a free gift for the subscribers group near the front of the store.

Lastly, my prop and pose are from the retirement sale going on now until the end of the month at Exposeur. Sadly, the shop will be closing for good though the Marketplace should remain available. All items are on sale for some very deep discounts.

The Silk Road Hunt and the Exposeur closing sale both end on June 30th so don’t delay.

I remain most sincerely yours,

Gabe's Signiture

Roar

Greetings FabFree Readers,

Roar

I am indulging in a bit of fantasy Medieval role play today for this missive. I saw this dashing set from C&N Gorian Designs and knew it was time for some ‘days of yor’.  This is the ‘Lion’ set from C&N Gorian Designs and it’s the current free Group Gift. However, with this being so close to the end of the month it may be changed out very soon. This set comes with the tunic the leggings, the boots and the separate hood, plus the belt and sword. The boots, belt and hood are all modifiable with a built in script to get a prefect fit. The mesh tunic and leggings come in the standard mesh sizes from XS to XL. As with every item from C&N, I have found this outfit to be superbly details and extremely well built.

The C&N Gorian Designs group is a small 25L to join and is well worth the lindens for all of the gifts and lucky boards. The group Gift board requires a 1L payment which is immediately refunded.

I Remain Most Sincerely Yours,

Gabe's Signiture

Dragon For a Day

Dragon for a Day

I decided to be a dragon for a day…

My look was actually inspired by the newest FREE group gift from [EvelineInTheBox]. The group is FREE to join and then you can pick up this amazing little black dress called Talena. It comes in all the standard sizes as well as Maitreya and TMP. I warn you, it’s really really short… but I LOVE the styling and details and the swirly black sequins. They are to die for… or to dragon for😉

I snagged a set of dragon wings for only 69L at Astralia. They have an in-store gacha that is FAB FAB FAB!!! The Khaleesi dragon wings are high detail and include a hud that lets you change the color of the claws on the wings. YUM! For 69L a spin, these are a deal!

I finished my look off with the FREE Summer Fun Gift hair for yesterday/today at Alice Project called Oona. It is scheduled to be changed out around 2 or 3pm SLT today and there will be a new FREE gift hair out at that time. Then this one will be only available to group members after that time. If you want to join the Alice Project group, that is a 375L group fee, but right now it is definitely worth it, as you get an extra gift each day in a natural set of colors in addition to the FREE to all gifts that are being set out. For more information on the Alice Project Gifts see my previous post [HERE].

Have a Fabulous day!❤

Not Your Typical Tinkerbell

In lore… the fairies were not people you messed with. Ever heard the saying “Don’t piss off the fairies.”? There was a reason! They were considered sinister, powerful… they were not your typical Tinkerbells of today’s movie making, that is for sure!

Not Your Typical Tinkerbell

When I came across the amazing FREE group gift (the group is FREE to join) by PixyStix for this month… I knew I was ready to put together a sinister winged faery of lore! This gift is incredibly generous, coming in not one… but five different tones, as well as so many different appliers that you will be able to apply to your heart’s content to just about anything. There are body appliers, soul uni ear appliers, butt appliers, boob appliers and head appliers too. You simply can’t go wrong with this fantasy skin! I included the advertisement below to show you the other shades (besides the blue that I’m sporting above) that are included in this wonderful gift.

Of course every sinister faery needs attire and wings. And I found a pretty (and inexpensive) in-store gacha at Sweet Lies that fit the bill. For just 30L per spin, I was able to pick up a fitmesh dress, a bracer/legwrap combo and a set of matching wings. I’ll admit, the Tinkerbell Gacha was addictive… and there is certainly nothing typical about the quality of these items. They are gorgeous! Get your gacha on at Sweet Lies!

An Enchanting Blue Fairy

The Blue Fairy

Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope all is well in your world. Right now my world is made up of fantastic fairy fabulousness thanks to the Enchantment Hunt. The May round of Enchantment is Thumbelina themed, and the shops participating in the Hunt part of the event are making all my fairy dreams come true! Even better, the Hunt gifts are all absolutely FREE. Additionally, Plastik recently sent out this gorgeous fantasy skin with male and female options and all the appliers for all the meshy things you could possibly imagine (okay most of them) as a FREE gift to their VIP group. You’re gonna want this one! Also, at the very end of the post I have a little something from Catwa that I want to tell you about. I bet you can guess what it is!

First, if you’ve never done an Enchantment Hunt before, this is a hud hunt. You can pick up a FREE hud at the Enchantment Event or at any of the participating shops. Once you attach the hud you’ll be asked to give it permission to teleport your avatar. Say yes! Then click on a shop logo to be instantly teleported to that location. You’ll also get a hunt hint in your local chat. You must be wearing the hud when you find the hunt object (an open book) and click it. The Enchantment Hunt object will not send you the gift without the Enchantment Hunt hud attached.Blue Fairy Close Since there are so many lovely Enchantment Hunt Freebies, I’ll start from the top. This crown of dainty, highly detailed hair flowers from NSP Florals is simply beautiful. This FREE hunt gift is sizable and can be easily positioned. Not to mention that hair flowers are an essential part of a fairy’s wardrobe, so you won’t want to miss these!

No fairy would be complete without a set of pretty gossamer wings! These delicate wings are the FREE Enchantment Hunt prize at Le Poppycock. The wings are static, and include several color versions, each in an open or closed position.

Next, this lace one-piece lingerie is the FREE Enchantment Hunt Prize at Blacklace. Blacklace is known for their beautiful lingerie, and this gift is no exception. Not only is this gift beautiful, it generously includes appliers for omega compatible bodies as well as classic system layers in several equally pretty colors.

The next to last stop on the Enchantment Hunt for this post is Essenz. These mint colored strappy flats are just too cute! These are easily the perfect fair footwear. This FREE hunt prize includes a Maitreya fit, and a Slink Flat fit. All fairy-ness aside, these sandals are a great addition to any summer wardrobe.

Finally, how cute is the pose used in the top photo? I love the whimsical look of the stance. This is one of 3 poses that are the Enchantment Hunt prize at Elephante Poses. Each of the 3 static poses have the same whimsical fairy quality to them. You’ll definitely want to add these FREE poses to your collection!

Now that I have shared a small sample of the Enchantment Hunt gifts to be had (I’ll show more in my next post), I want to talk about this incredible skin. Just recently Plastik gained 1000 Facebook likes/followers and to show her appreciation, the designer sent out this skin to her VIP group. This FREE gift comes in a male and female version and includes classic system layers along with appliers for every mesh body part you might imagine. I love the added detail of the almost iridescent looking stripes. They really give this skin an otherworldly look. In addition to the applier options, you also have the choice of freckles or no freckles.  At this time The Plastik group is FREE to join, and you’ll find this awesomely generous gift in the past group notices.

Lastly, I know this has been an unusually long post for me, but I have one more thing I want to share with you. Catwa has just released a static mesh head called Nicki, and it is for sale now for just 100 lindens. Yes, this is above and beyond the 75 lindens we usually stick to, however if you’re a Catwa group member you will get 30 lindens in store credit for purchasing the head. This brings that 100 linden cost to just 70 lindens in a round about way. Aside from being static (no blinking, no facial expressions) this pretty face has all the same functions as any other Catwa mesh head. Currently the Catwa group is FREE to join, so don’t forget to join the group and wear your group tag to get the store credit when purchasing the Nicki head.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!
