Mad Maxine

I’m not sure about anyone else but whenever I hear about “Post Apocalyptic” anything, my mind instantly turns to “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome”! Maybe I’m showing my age here?! I don’t care, the movie is a cult classic. Not to mention that Grace Jones and Tina Turner were nothing less than fierce in that movie. Not sure what I’m talking about? I seriously suggest you google that.

After visiting the current round of Secret Affair, I was very much inspired. With the help of Luas, and Roawenwood, I channeled a little bit of my “Beyond Thunderdome” muses, and easily put together a fierce post-apoc look. Plus I got the added thrill of playing a gacha machine. Bonus!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Optimistic Playlist HuntGood morning Fabulous Fans! It’s a great time to get out there and go hunting. There are fifty-seven hunts going on right now. That’s a LOT of free or nearly free goodness. I’ve recently been adding a lot of very cool mesh coats to my wardrobe, all garnered from various hunts. Now I just need to starting putting all those coats in the closet and start working on some summery outfits. It’s not too soon!

Hunts are a great way to pick up a lot of free (or very nearly free) stuff for your inventory. If you haven’t tried hunting yet, there’s help to get started. FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages with useful advice.

You’ll want to check out all the hunts and find one that suits your particular style. It shouldn’t be too hard. The various hunt themes are abundant!

So let’s do this! Just click the names for more information on each hunt.

See you out on the hunt!

Shhhhhhh… it’s a secret

Hello my FabFree-ers! I have a secret today…  Well, I guess it’s not too secret since it IS an event! The Secret Affair is up and under way and this round is very “After the Apocalypse” with a big dose of Fantasy.

It's a Secret

I found a bunch of well priced Gachas at many venders but it was Wimey’s ‘Vixen of Destruction’ gown and corset that made me plunk down the Lindens.  There are six commons: the gown in six different colors. And there are four rares: the corset in four colors. Plus an Ultra rare which is an ombre gown with a HUD for all the colors. At only 50L per play… I was hooked!

This is a great event for all of us “alternative fashion” junkies plus you can find accessories, furniture and lot’s of role play goodies. Hurry over before March 30th!

Your Taxi to the Secret Affair!

Hello, Sweetie

Once upon a time there was a Mad Man with a box….

Hello, Sweetie

If you’re a Doctor Who fan, like I am, you do not want to miss the “Who’s Who Hunt” from Madly Untamed Hunts! You only have until March 31st to find all thirty three prizes so let’s jump in. We have to start with the TARDIS. This is the TARDIS Closet from Fairy Angel Creations. The doors open and close to the familiar landing sounds. I’ve seen a lot of TARDIS  model on the grid and this is definitely one of the nicest!

And if you’re going to take a ride in the TARDIS you need to look spiffy. This is the female part of Beyond Persuasion Designs “Calling All Ponds” prize. The prize includes the boots, the tights and the tank. The male half of the prize includes jeans, shoes and a hoodie with ‘Come along, Pond’ printed on it. It’s so cute I almost modeled that instead of the girl’s gift!  But the hoodie would have covered up the necklace from Harambee Gwassi -Kenya Charity Shop’s ‘Time Lord’ jewelry set and I couldn’t have that. I just love the flowing Gallifrayen script!  The set comes with both necklace and earrings.

And of course I needed a Doctor so I dashed over to Hopscotch to play the “15 Jammy Dodgers and a Fez” Gacha  machine! I pulled a cute little Cyberman too. Hopscotch isn’t part of the Hunt but the Doctor plushie was too perfect not to include in this post.

The 1L Who’s Who Hunt runs until March 31st so don’t delay!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Blast From The Past HuntGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, March 24.

Check out the Blast From The Past Hunt, which is numero uno in our list of top ten hunts today. It’s a short little 14-stop hunt which you can probably finish in about an hour. You’ll be looking for a vinyl record. Remember those?

Rather do latex than vinyl? Try a visit to the 50 Shades of Lust event. You’ll find leather, latex, lingerie, and other erotic type stuff.

There are plenty of other themes to go around too. There are 57 different hunts going on right now. I’m sure you can find just the hunt you are looking for.

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!

In my garden

One of the great things about being a FabFree member is the huge selection of totally free gifts you can pick up at our Headquarters! There is a little something for everyone no matter your style.

In my garden

I love medieval and Fantasy styles, if y’all didn’t already know that. So when I saw C&N Designs gorgeous ‘Eluthiel’ Dress, I knew I needed it! I love the quilted details and the golden ribbon wraps. The wide neckline just begs for a show stopper necklace and D.D.M Designs ‘Giallo Fiora Primavera’ necklace is just the thing.

In my garden

The Fabulously Free designers do change out the gifts periodically so if you love this look, hurry down right away to the FabFree Headquarters, put your group tag on and gather up the goodies!

Twisted

We know we are alive
But could soon be dead

As breathing
Is the only thing
That divides
The living and the dead

The Twisted Hunt is a shadow … a Spectre…. a ghost…  pale cubes spinning driving us mad.  There are few hints, a thousand decoys…. But, oh the gifts and Gachas and side games.  You only have until April 5th to find all the little cubes.

This is the “70s Maxi dress” from Fi’s Creations.  I love the sunny yellows and oranges… makes think of Summer.  This 100% Mesh and comes in the standard sizes XS – XL.  If you want to perfect pair of shoes to wear with your Maxi dress, check out these stacked heels from Wicked.
