Today’s Top 10 Hunts

Banner Free Dove ~ Tiffany DesignsGood morning fabulous friends! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, January 12.

The Tiffany in-store hunt at The Free Dove is topping the chart this week. Just looking at the outfits pictured on the hunt poster I can see why. This looks like a fabulous collection of gifts that every woman will want to get in on. This hunt is FREE.

While you’re there, you can pick up some Iconica shoes too. Check The Free Dove Iconica Shoe Hunt… currently number 6 on the chart.

There are plenty of other cool hunts too. Check the list and start clicking!

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!

Sweet & Sour Desert Flower

Sweet and Sour Desert Flower 1

Some days you just feel like dancing. And if a new outfit and new hair isn’t a reason for dancing, I don’t know what is!

Firefly is participating in the Mars Meets Venus on Earth Hunt (which ends January 23rd) and for only 1L you can pick up this beautiful Arabian inspired full outfit called Sweet&Sour for only 1L if you find the planet at their main-store location. The skirt is mesh in all the standard sizes and has a terrific eclectic design that really catches the eye. The outfit includes shoes for system feet (no special feet required) as well as a sculpty sash (it’s modifiable for a perfect fit), resizable armlets, and the tattoo bindi for your forehead. The top comes in a system layer only, but it’s well worth rocking your system body for this highly detailed gem.

If you’re looking for a new hair-do, be sure to stop by Blues. Hair and pick up the latest group gift. This style called Eline (which is the Happy 2016 New Year gift) is FREE to group members for your small group join fee of 99L. There are a couple of past group gifts still out and more to come in the future, and these are all full fat packs so you’ll get your Linden worth in one stop at the store by joining the group!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL colorsofthewindhuntThe number of hunts has definitely fallen off since Christmas. I think all the hunt organizers are exhausted from the holidays. That doesn’t mean there aren’t some good hunts out there however. Some of the winter themed hunts are still on and a whole bunch of Valentine’s Day hunts are just over the horizon. Second Life residents love their… well… love!

So take a gander at the current offerings and get hunting. As usual, The Free Dove has a nice set of store-wide hunts that are worth checking out. Going in the wee hours of the morning is good because The Free Dove does get crowded.

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.

A Highlands Lady

Hey there, FabFree folks!

RennHunt_001

Even as the new year is starting up, some things are winding down. I almost missed the nifty little Holiday Hunt over on Renaissance Island. The good folks at Renaissance Island have hidden 22 gifts all over the town each one priced at 0L. My favorite has to be this gorgeous tartan gown, Bayberry from G. Sloane. It has a nice holiday feel if you need something for next year’s December role plays but it isn’t overly Christmas-y. I added a picture so you can see the gown without the stole.

RennHunt_002

I added the lovely ‘Silver Fox Stole’ from Tayren’s Fantasy Fashions to make my new gown a little more snow – friendly. This elegant stole comes with a longer scarf version for your gentleman too.

Don’t be intimidated by the idea of a ‘Sim wide’ Hunt, this hunt is fun and easy and the organizers provided a great list of hints you can grab from the Hunt poster at the landing point.  What you can’t do is wait around. This Hunt ends on January 6th so hurry over!

Snow Angel

Snow Angel 1

I once had a mentor in my life give me a little gold stick pin that said we all had guardian angels in our lives. This gift from Paris Metro reminded me a bit of the sweet nostalgia I felt the other day when I found that small gift tucked away in my jewelry box.

This lovely gift from Paris Metro is FREE with your FREE group join, and you can get it by stopping by the main store to pick it up there. It includes system and applier layers for Belleza, Slink, and Omega, a flexi skirt, sculpted belt and back bow, the wings shown, and a beautiful lead glass ornament (not shown).

Snow Angel 2

Lazui has also put out a set of beautiful new gifts for their group members in the form of this Renata Emeralds Set. For your 250L group join fee, you can get two different necklaces, both bracelets, and two earring styles all FREE. Lazuri is generous about giving out regular gifts, so don’t let the fee deter you.

My lovely Snow Queen pose is an advent gift from Eternal Dream Poses. Yes, the advents are still going on and it’s not too late to get in on some of the advent generosity! To get this pose you have two options, pay 10L if you are short on group space (a tiny fee for such a beautiful pose) or join the group for 200L and get all the advent gifts FREE — plus gifts for the rest of the year as well! The snowflake in the picture I have tinted to gold, but it was originally blue (tinted from white). It’s modifiable, so you can tint it whatever color you like to fit your snowy scene.

Lady Christmas

Happy 25L Tuesday, FabFree Folks!

Lady Christmas

Since it’s the Tuesday before ‘the Big Day’, I was extra happy to find some 25L goodies in the holiday spirit. My gorgeous fur trimmed gown is the ‘Lady Mary’ from Whatz and it’s perfect for that elegant Mrs. Santa look. The gown comes with it’s alpha layer and the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL.

My lovely wreath prop is also on today’s 25L list. This is the ‘Fluffy Wreath’ from Dysfunctionality. The wreath is all Mesh and is only 1land impact when you rez it at the original size. But you can make it as big as you need to though the LI does increase as you do.

Lady Christmas

As I was searching out the 25L Tuesday deals, I found a great little FREE Hunt going on at Come Soon/ Dita Couture. There are blue snowflakes hidden all around the Come Soon shop and each one is loaded with prizes. I found tattoos, poses, outfits and jewelry! My pose is actually from a group pose set called “Happy Family” which comes with poses for four and a little friend.

My lovely jewelry set is also from the Come Soon Hunt. This is the Galadriel earrings and necklace set. Both pieces come with a handy resize script so you can get the perfect fit. Galadriel was also FREE as part of the Hunt.

25L Tuesday will end at midnight SLT and the Come Soon Xmas Hunt ends on December 24! So don’t delay, my dears!

Christmas Kisses

♫ I saw Mommy kissing Santa Clause ♪

♪ Underneath the mistletoe last night ♫

Christmas Kisses

And who wouldn’t want a kiss if you’re wearing something like this super smexy get up I found on the “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Hunt“? This nifty little Santa inspired apron dress is from Vips Creations. The “I Love Sexy Christmas” outfit comes with a HUD to change the color and textures of the dress to one of six choices, plus the prize includes jewelry, shoes for SLink High Feet, a red thong and a cute little clutch. The back of the dress is just a little… cheeky so you better be feelin’ sassy if you’re going to wear it out and about. One thing about Vips… there are a TON of Hunts and Christmas Freebies all over the store!

Christmas Kisses

The perfect festive boots I’ve got on are the “Santa Baby” boots from Lindy Modern & Retro shoes, also for the I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Hunt. The boots come with an alpha layer so they fit all feet just right.

The big day is coming up quick and many of our Christmas hunts will be ending soon. The “I Saw….” Hunt will run until December 31st so you don’t have much longer to get ready for that mistletoe smooching.

Got Your Gowns Right Here!

One of my Second Life passions is Roleplay. And one of my favorite characters is my glass sidhe fey (who’s name is Astrid of course!). She’s a bit of a vain thing… like most fey of course, and loves to look beautiful. So when I discovered that The White Armory was hosting an Advent Calendar I had to check it out, and I was not disappointed!

Like many of the other calendars, you can pick up a gift for each of the 24 days which count down the holiday. For this calendar, no group is required, the doors don’t ‘close’, and you can pick up each of the past gifts. Just pay 0L to receive the gown for each day FREE!

Got Your Gowns Right Here 1

This FREE gown called Ice Flower by The White Armory is exactly the kind of gown my fey character would wear! It was behind door number 11 on the advent calendar in case you were wondering.

It is fully mesh in all the standard sizes to fit either system or mesh bodies with added flexi pieces (the flowers and a few nice touches around the bottom of the skirt to add ‘flow’ to the gown). The gloves are system so I was unable to wear them with my slink hands, but the gown was still drop dead gorgeous even without the gloves, so I wasn’t worried a bit!

Got Your Gowns Right Here 3

This FREE summery little dress by The White Armory was behind advent door number 8 is called Summer Breeze (of course!), and is perfect for picnics in the park, Sunday walks, ladies in waiting, and much much more! It is a fully mesh dress in all the standard sizes with a few small flexi pieces which attach to the skirt at bottom to add flair and flow, so this dress will work perfectly for both system and mesh bodies.

Got Your Gowns Right Here 2

This FREE gown is the gift for Day 2 on the advent calendar and is from The White Armory‘s Birthstone Collection, called Sublime Spirit Birthstone Gown December. It is perfect if you are still rocking your system body, and though it does not feature any mesh parts, the flexi layers are so well crafted that it falls and flows perfectly to make for a gorgeous ball gown or roleplay gown fit for a princess or elven queen, (or a vain fey like Astrid!).

Got Your Gowns Right Here 4

This FREE White Armory gown was behind door number 6 and is aptly called “She’s So Dangerous” and actually has several options (not all are shown). While it works as a gown with a flexi skirt, it also has a pants option as well. The pants option is mesh as is the top in all the standard sizes, so if you are looking for an outfit that will work for a system body OR your mesh body this one will fit either one!

What I love about this outfit is the versatility. It is literally 3 outfits in one package… with two different dress options and one pant-suit option, and can pass for medieval… or is just ‘modern’ enough to fly for sci-fi!

A Gorean Inspired Holiday

Gorean Holiday

Hi There Fab Free! It’s been a while since I d any sort of Role Play or Gorean inspired post, and I felt it was about time I did. I have to say the inspiration for this post came from the 10 linden We <3 RP hunt gift from Roawenwood. These beautifully crafted candles with their big red holiday bows are the perfect decor for the holidays, no matter the style of your place, they will fit right in. The candles are mesh and can be lit or extinguished with a click! The December round of We <3 RP ends on the 31st, so don’t wait too long to head on over and do a little hunting.

Gorean Style Holiday Luas never fails to deliver when I am looking for something fun, a little bit naughty, and role-play worthy. I found this cute but naughty Holiday inspired outfit from Luas for just 25 lindens on the Marketplace. The outfit includes the camsik, arm-warmers/gloves, boa, gingerbread man necklace, glowing red nose, and the antler headband, as well as some system layer modesty clothing also not shown. Each piece can be re-sized easily by clicking the item. For a little added cover, I wore the Maitreya bra and panties that are included with the Maitreya Lara body.

To complete my fun Gorean style holiday look, I added these very detailed and beautifully textured holiday boots from Dirty Princess. I love the buckles up the side! These mesh boots are the current FREE Group Gift at Dirty Princess. The Dirty Princess group is also FREE to join at this time, making these boots absolutely FREE! The boots come in several fits and sizes for the perfect fit whether you wear a mesh body or not. No mesh feet are required for these boots.

Here are the details, Enjoy, and Happy Hunting!
