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.

What Goes Around, Comes Around!

whc lyrcoldash pic

I never intended it to happen, but do you have an article of clothing that you rely on as a “go to” item, one that absolutely refuses to age? I do! And, later in this post, we are going to celebrate its one-year anniversary in my wardrobe. First though, check out what I found last night! I went by a store named Cold Ash, which specializes in fantastically detailed, rugged-looking men’s clothing. I found this vintage style T-shirt as their FREE Group Gift! The Mesh Austin Tee in STEEL BLUE is a fine representation of the quality that goes into the clothing that Cold Ash makes. Anyone who knows me knows I am a sucker for T-Shirts that look soft and well-worn, and this ribbed cotton T-shirt hangs beautifully with soft, realistic folds. It’s like it was never meant to be taken off. In the FREE Group Gift, you get 3 sizes and an additional 2 sizes in fitmesh, so getting a good fit won’t be any problem. Stop by Cold Ash, this is a must pick up! The pants I chose to wear with it are the current FREE Group Gift from Lavarock, likely my favorite male clothing store on Second Life. They are the Destroy Male Jeans and are probably one of the grungiest items in my wardrobe. I love the texture on them. Honestly, if I ever move to Seattle to pursue my dreams of alt-rock super stardom, these are the jeans I am going to wear! They come in 2 styles, with five sizes of each included in the gift. The only problem is they have been out for quite a while, and at the moment I am unable to say how much longer they will remain available. If you like them in the picture, go get them immediately. I suspect they may not be available much longer. The last item in the Cold Ash inspired outfit is the cap, which was just one of those lucky finds you sometimes run across accidentally. It is a 1L hunt prize from a hunt which is sadly already over. Luckily, the owner of Ashmoot forgot to pick up the hunt prize! It’s only 1L and the cap matches the T-shirt wonderfully. Sadly I can’t recall the name of the hunt, but you are looking for a hunt object shaped like a mask called “P-H Hunt # 8″. Look for it where you find the daily prize boards. Kristabel Ashmoot promises me she will leave it out until the end of the month so we all have a chance to grab it (a VERY sweet thing to do for us). Be sure to pick it up before it’s too late!

I teased you that as I write this I am celebrating an anniversary of sorts, and I have Lyrieal’s Boutique to thank for it. I recently attended “Just For Him”, a cart sale like event with a 1L mini-hunt where I found this great leather jacket! It comes from Lyrieal’s Boutique and is their Just For Him Hunt Prize. It has a hud that allows you to choose 5 different colors in both the leather and the lining. For a single linden, that’s great value. The event is not a large one, but I should have known Lyrieal’s Boutique would have something special out. This brings me to the anniversary: I was dying to show you this jacket and was having trouble finding just the right pants to present it with, so I decided to go with my “go to” grey system jeans and Mesh boots, tinting the jeans a bit darker to match. After doing the picture, I began putting together this post, and found I had reason to smile. Those beloved jeans and boots of mine are from a hunt one year ago today…and were previously blogged here by a young guest blogger. Coincidentally, they also came from Lyrieal’s Boutique! So, to celebrate the one-year anniversary of their posting in Fab Free, the In The Pink outfit has been added to the 1L hunt prize, making it even better. It is a great looking outfit and the jeans are tintable to match a wide range of grays, so they are super handy to have around. Even the boots are nice, you can’t beat this value. I had originally planned to end my post here, and call it a night, but once I get going I am hard to stop. So in the spirit of “You really should check out the Just For Him sales event”, here is a final addition to my post below!

whc cold ash beach 1_001

While I was at the sale, I noticed a pair of shorts on the back wall of the booth belonging to the store Trashed. Just like the other coincidences this week (the hat which looked great with the T-shirt that was accidentally left out, and the nice jeans I decided to wear being posted to fab free exactly one year ago today) these denim shorts look like they were made to go with the Cold Ash T-Shirt I picked up this week. The Trashed Men’s denim shorts in plaid are not free, but this is a sale event as well as a hunt and these shorts look really great. If you love that T-shirt as much as I do, that is reason enough to pony up the extra 85L for these shorts to go with them. They make a fantastic pair together. Once again, I have worked late into the evening and I must go, but this has been a post full of pleasant surprises. Until next time my friends, see you on the grid. —–WHC Riler

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!

Good Ju-Ju

Snapshot_006
Good evening everyone! I am back tonight to share news of a few more freebies and dollarbies at The We <3 Roleplay event as well as some awesome gacha items that I have come across recently.

I’ll start with the under 10L stuff  and then move into the gacha deals;)

In the photo above I am displaying the following four items that I have picked up at this round of We <3 Roleplay:

* [Takeo] Tabletop  (10L) –  This wooden board with game pieces is displayed on the rug and is just 2 prims.

* NOMAD Antique World Map (10L) – The Antique World Map is leaning up against the wall behind me and comes in a set of 2 for just 10L.  The maps are 2 prims each.

* Roawenwood The Way of The Warrior Tai Chi Meditation Rug (free / 0L) – I am displaying the rug as a decorative item, but actually it has a menu of tai chi and meditation animations in it. (2 prims)

*Ex Machina Kopermikus Star Machine  (free / 0L) – This star machine is really cool and actually works spinning sparkly stars around the room when you activate it by touch. (4 prims)

Also displayed as décor items, I have used four items (Big Cabinet, Side Letters, Plate Cabinet & Big Clock) from the Industrial Side gacha set at 6th Republic Event.  These items are all low prim and are just 55L per play.

My outfit today is by Aphorism and is available in the Ju-Ju gacha set at The Fantasy Gacha Carnival for 75L per play.  I am wearing the rare black jacket, common black skirt and rare black hat.  I love the bones!

Free Dove Hunt – Part 1

Free Dove May 2

Hi there Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about you, but I’ve had a long week already and I’m in some major need of retail therapy! Luckily there is a great hunt going on at Free Dove for the month of May. This means I get my retail therapy for FREE! When I first started the hunt, I really had no idea just how big the hunt really was. There is a lot of cool stuff to be had, everything from shoes to jewelry.

To start, pictured in the top left photo is this super fun party dress. This mesh dress is one of the FREE hunt gifts from Fission. I love the sequined skirt! The dress comes in standard mesh sizes with matching alpha layers. Next, in the center photo, the mask and the ring are both gifts at Free Dove from Masoom. The sheer lace mask is mesh and has the ability to be re-sized, and has a ribbon tie that goes around your head. I like the almost art deco look to this chunky ring. The ring is actually part of a complete outfit you can find while hunting, but it was so cute I couldn’t resist showing it right away! To the right in the photo is a pretty cocktail dress, also by Fission. Like all the gifts in this hunt, this is also FREE. The dress comes with standard sizes and alphas. I think it would be great for entertaining guests.

Free Dove May 1

Now for a few of the more casual items in the Free Dove hunt. I think this light blue day dress is very sweet. The buttons on the chest make the dress, I also really like the little cap-sleeves. This is a FREE hunt gift from Fission and it comes with standard sizes. The top pictured in the center is also by Fission. I was really happy to see something in one of my favorite shades of green. As with the other Free Dove hunt gifts by Fission, this one is fully mesh with standard sizes. I think the dress in the photo to the right is really feminine and pretty. It too is by Fission, and of course is fully mesh. In the country we’d wear this little dress with some cute boots and a bolero style jean-jacket!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my review of the Free Dove Hunt so far! There will be more to come, so stay tuned!

Greetings Fabulous ones! In my blog entry today I am featuring a couple of ensemble finishing touches that you can find at this round of We <3 Roleplay as dollarbies in celebration of their anniversary!  Almost all of the vendors are offering group gifts, freebies or dollarbies, so be sure to make a stop at all them just in case!

The Verelis Dragon Fly in my hair is available at the Enfant display!  For just 1L, you get the gold and silver version.

Lumae is offering their Artemis Head Chain jewelled in moonstone, priced at 10L.  Five metal versions are included and offers a re-size option.

On a side note, you can find the feathered  !gO! Drow Bolero at The Fantasy Gacha Carnival at 75L per play.  It comes in a set with a top and apron skirt in four colours. The white bolero that I am wearing is actually a common piece, but a real stunner!

Early One Morning

Snapshot_001
Hello Fabulouses! With all of this warm weather, I got a hankering to do a little fishing… Fishing for  some free Sn@tch!  The Sn@tch Fish 4 This Outfit is currently set to the Early One Morning 23 piece set.  I am wearing several of the pieces in the photo above, but it is not limited to the items shown!  As you will see in the photo below – there are a ton of different mix and match clothing items, appliers and accessories.
Sn@tch Fish 4 This Early One Morning Vendor Ad SM
In case you are not familiar with 7Seas Fishing prizes at Sn@tch… how it works is – You purchase the casual use rod for 100L at Sn@tch in the 7Seas Fishing Vendor which you will find in the VIP Lounge by the aquarium.  Then you will need to find a place to unpack the rod and then return to snatch.  Stand near the pond, add the rod to your avatar and cast until you have all of the pieces in the set – no need to purchase bait.  There are several customizable settings for the rod which you will find by clicking it and activating the menu.  The most useful feature for me, is probably auto-cast ;)  All of the pieces in the pond are transfer so you can trade with other fishers or gift your pieces to friends.  Hang onto that rod in your inventory because you’ll need it for the next prize when it is released.

If you are wondering about this fabulous new hair I have on… It’s a sneak peek of Damselfly’s new gacha offering called Acantha which will be available at The Fantasy Gacha Carnival, priced at 75L per play.  The new round of TFGC will open up on May 12th, and I can’t wait!
