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!

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.

Giving You The Gold Shoulder ;-)

whc amerbazaar blkshirt 1

Happy Wednesday! In the spirit of the holidays, I planned to post something bright and colorful. However, wouldn’t you know it? I found something fantastic in black instead! Black is, of course, the official color of Men’s clothes in Second Life (a fact that I readily make fun of often). Sometimes, though, an item comes along too sharp-looking to be ignored, and this is one of those cases.

The Serious Shirt is this month’s free group gift from American Bazaar. It is a seriously handsome shirt combo, with the black shirt, tie and a nicely textured sweater all integrated into a sweet piece of Mesh! It is offered in Five sizes for an easy fit, and the black-on-black look and great style suits my taste to a tee. Well done, American Bazaar. Thank you for a fantastic free gift!

There is a Christmas tree at The Cosmopolitan Sales Room decorated with festive stockings which are filled with a variety of free gifts. Among them you will find the Fashion Shades from Yasum that I am wearing in the above picture. There are versions for both male and female avies. Plus, they come with a hud giving you a choice of six frame textures and four lens textures. These shades are quite stylish and the hud options make them versatile as well.

Last (but certainly not least!), there are several free gifts over at Swank Events. The one that really screamed, “Pick me up!” was a shoulder pet, of all things. I have never blogged a shoulder pet before so for it to catch my eye, you know it is something special. Heth Haute Couture has created Cosima The King of Couture – Shoulder Pet, a brilliant gold figure with bright diamond eyes. Highly detailed right down to the little crown, it is an impressive piece of work to be sure. I usually don’t wear shoulder pets. I doubt most guys do, but this is definitely eye catching and it could be just the right detail to finish off a fun outfit.

That’s it for now. With the holiday season upon us, I hope your lives are filled with joy and love. If you can’t have that, then try comfort and lust. That doesn’t sound too bad either. However things work out, best wishes to you and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Point Me To The Eggnog!

whcLavarock Outlaw GG

Happy Wednesday everyone, I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season. In real life, I have been busy doing the Christmas party circuit in my “Eggnog Makes My Clothes Fall Off” T-Shirt. I find it shocking how few parties serve eggnog anymore. Anyway, besides that small disappointment, this is an excellent month for the freebie/cheapie hunter on Second Life.

My favorite item this week is another fantastic FREE Mesh Group Gift from Lavarock. The Outlaw Jacket went from the store directly into my wardrobe as their group gifts usually do. The jacket has excellent textures and detailing as Lavarock‘s items often have, but this particular FREE Group Gift comes with a texture change T-Shirt hud! It gives you a choice of twelve different T-Shirt textures and also gives you the option of not wearing the Tee at all! There are five sizes included in the box for a good fit, Ladies, this isn’t just for the men. A women’s version is also available as a FREE Group Gift. The quality of this garment is excellent, I definitely encourage you to pick it up!

It is the holiday season and I would be remiss if I failed to post a prize from the Candy Cane Hunt, which is currently underway. It is one of the best December hunts, and this year Inkheart is offering three colors of their Candy Eyes as their hunt prize. In the picture, I am wearing caramel. Also in the 1L box are the cotton candy and dark choco colors. The gift is rather comprehensive including mesh versions and three sizes for each color. The hunt object you are looking for is a blue cupcake with white icing and a candy cane sticking out of it. Happy hunting!

The last object surprised me because the hunt it is part of is long over. Sweet Intoxication still has The Biker Hunt prize available at their store! The prize costs 1L and is this fantastic pair of Mesh Jeans that I am wearing. Coming in five sizes for a nice fit, the Caden Jeans are baggy, but not overly so. As an additional option, there is a rag that is stuffed in the back pocket (which I love because it is an unusual detail). All things considered, these jeans are a fantastic pick up. The Biker Hunt object looks like a motorcycle headlamp; I hope many of us can grab it before it is gone.

That’s it for now. It’s time to pull on my holiday shirt and head off to another party. If I am lucky, I will finally find one with eggnog. Until next time, have fun everyone. Happy Holidays and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Basically

Hello FabFree-ers. I’ve got a quick one for you today.

Basically

Today is all about basics. Skin and hair… without it you’d look really odd… or yeah… never mind. ANYWAY, one of my absolute favorite shops, Lumae has put out a brand new Group Gift for us. This is Jewel Cocoa and I think she is perfect for Fall. The pretty mat lip color will go with all of my Autumn wardrobe. Jewel comes with all eight skin tones and includes a ton of appliers: Lelutka, Genesis Lab, TMP, SLink Visage, Omega AND Loud Mouth, Nyam Nyam, Sweet Lips and Kissers. And if that wasn’t enough, the gift also comes with system tattoos for brows, freckles, cleavage and lashes. Plus, Lumae’s group is FREE to join. One quick note… in the picture I’m also wearing the freckles tattoo layer but the skin comes in a clear tone.

On top, I’ve got one of two latest group gifts from no.match. This is no.fun. Which I think is actually all kinds of fun. The short sassy style comes with a HUD with five colors and a resize script. No.match’s group has a small 50L fee join but by the time you pick up all the gifts available you have earned that back easy peasy.

Geisha Girl

Geisha

It’s Sunday Fun Day! I hope everyone is having some fun today. I know I am enjoying the heck out of this Twisted Tale Hunt prize at Entice. First, a little about the Twisted Tale Hunt. This is a 1 linden hunt, and the gift will be available until November 30th. The Entice gift for this hunt is an entire avatar.

You read that right, the Entice prize for the Twisted Tale Hunt is a complete Geisha avatar. This generous prize comes with a skin (makeup is part of the skin), an omega applier for the skin, eyes, hair, a mesh kimono in standard sizes, mesh feet with geta sandals, and a shape. Whether you’re a role player or like me and just like to play dress-up, you need this in your life! Not to mention, the kimono alone is more than worth the 1 linden you’ll spend, it’s a high-low style with gorgeous texture.

Here’s a little hint to help you on your hunt ” While you’re at the subscribo…”. I’ve added a copy of the designer’s ad below, so you can get a good look at the full prize. Happy Hunting!

PSYCHO Zombie Hunter!

Zombie Hunter PruI hope you’ve had a fabulous weekend Fab Free! So today, I thought I’d just have a little fun and play dress-up, Halloween style. Zombies are huge this year, if you’re not a zombie, why not be a zombie hunter? With the Wayward Halloween Gacha  items from Psycho Byts you can do just that! This gruesome gacha has all the gory accessories any zombie hunter could need.

Zombie Hunter Pru 1

The Psycho Byts machine at the Wayward Halloween Gacha  event is just 50 lindens per play. Each of the items is fully mesh, and some include a texture change hud. Starting with the hokey mask, this iconic horror accessory can be textured plain or bloody. The default position is over the face, but I edited the position to be as shown in the photo. Looks like I escaped the zombies just in time, these creepy severed zombie arms are animated to wiggle as if they were still “alive”. Every zombie hunter needs a weapon, and this machete is just the thing! The weapon comes with a hud so the machete can be clean or bloody, and includes an animation to switch from holding it out to holding it up over your shoulders. For an added creepiness factor, one of the Psycho Byts gacha prizes in this set are these monstrous zombie eyes. The eyes include a color change hud as well, with 3 color options. Lastly, if you need a souvenir of your zombie kills, you can score a necklace of ears, or this ghastly pail complete with the zombie head floating in blood. There are a few additional prizes in this gacha set that I didn’t show, so I’ve included a photo of the key below. To add a little to this glam-goth zombie hunter look of mine, I also picked up a cross lip applier by Mad’ on the Marketplace for just 15 lindens. The set includes lip appliers for TMP, Catwa, Lelutka, and Slink heads.

I’m sure you can all imagine how giddy I am that my favorite blog in SL isn’t closing it’s doors. And that has given me a nice little burst of energy to go out and find me some bargains!

sentinus_001

First up is this sassy red number from Sentinus. This is the Jenna Red shirt and skirt and they are one of the new FREE Group Gifts up right now. The skirt and shirt are separates so of course, that makes them nice and versatile. I like the skirt’s almost ‘cheerleader’ look and who doesn’t like a smexy little cheerleader skirt?

Next is another pair of gorgeous eyes from Mayfly. These are ‘Tropical Sea’ and they are the FREE Group Gift. If you haven’t tried out Mayfly‘s  new HUD for the mesh eyes you are missing out. The HUD is super easy to use and you can really customize your eyes to be exactly right. You can turn on shadows, glow, position them … everything. Plus the eyes come with four steps of shades for the whites.

sentinus_002

As with all Group Gifts, these are out as of now but could come down anytime. So if ya like ’em go grab ’em!
