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.

Your Friday Hunt Report

flirty-summer-hunt-logoGood Morning Fabulous Fans! There are lots of fun hunts going on right now, so if you love fabulously free stuff, there’s no better time to take up the sport of hunting.

The Paws, Tails & Whiskers Hunt and the Stars and Stripes Hunt end today, so if you want in on those it’s time to jump up off the couch and grab your hunting bag.

A couple of hunts just started today. You can be the first kid on your block to participate. They are the Flirty Summer Hunt and the Raining Tacos Hunt. Who doesn’t like tacos?!

Sit Stay Good Dog

Sit Stay Good Dog“Summer Lovin’ had me a blast…” Does anyone else start singing that song from Grease when every they see “Summer Lovin'” written anywhere? lol Okay maybe it’s just me. Since it’s been a minute since my last post, I’ve filled this one with fun stuff from the Women Only Hunt, and one item from the Summer Lovin’ Hunt. Both hunts started June 1st, and there are so many cute things to hunt for, it was hard to pick what to show! Also you may have seen a few posts from some of my Fabulous teammates. I’ll link to their posts in the credits as well, just in case!

I’m going to start with this puppy and ice cream pose from Le Poppycock because it’s my favorite. I’m such a sucker for French bulldogs, and this little guy, or gal, is just irresistible. The pose shown in the top photo, the puppy, and the delicious looking ice cream cone are all included in the FREE Women Only Hunt gift at Le Poppycock. If your a photographer this pose set is especially great, because the puppy is meant to be worn. Wearing the puppy puts your avatar in the pose so you can use it without having to rez anything. The gift also comes with the pose, so you could rez the puppy and use the pose alone, allowing for a little more versatility.Sit Stay Good Dog 2Also part of the Women Only Hunt is this frilly little crop top from 1 Hundred. This is an applier top with appliers for almost everything you could imagine. There is a single hud that includes appliers for mesh breasts (Lolas, Lush, Mirage, Delicq,Omega), and mesh bodies (Wowmeh, Slink Physique, Belleza Venus, Maitreya Lara, Omega). Additionally this FREE WOH gift from 1 Hundred includes classic system layers for non mesh wearers.

This sinfully sweet full-body tattoo is another FREE WOH gift. Chemical Princess put this “Cupcake” tattoo out, and I just love it. The tattoo is filled with yummy looking candies, cupcakes, ice cream, and other sweets. This gift tattoo comes with an Omega applier, a Slink applier, and classic system layers. Tattoo lovers like me won’t want to miss out on this delicious tattoo!

Arise is also participating in the WOH and their gift is a beautiful set of “Sunny” eyes. These shining bright blue eyes are part of the FREE set from Arise. The gift includes a brown, grey, lime, purple, and sky pair of eyes along with the light blue ones shown. In the package you’ll get a set of mesh eyes for each color and a matching system eye layer. Sunny is definitely an appropriate name for these eyes, each of the colors are equally bright and vibrant.

Back to the Summer Lovin’ part of this post! Slipper put out these cute sandals as their Summer Lovin’ Hunt gift. The Summer Lovin’ Hunt is a dollarbie hunt, so these cute shoes are just 1 linden. The gift includes a Maitreya fit, a Slink fit, and a TMP fit. Also, Slipper is participating in the Women Only Hunt as well, so don’t forget to hunt down that gift while you’re there!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Marketplace HuntGood morning fabulous friends! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, March 29.

The rather unique Marketplace Hunt has been very popular of late. In this hunt you don’t have to run around in-world. All the prizes are on the marketplace. All you need do is go from one marketplace store to the next and look for the specially marked items. It’s pretty cool.

If you’re still in bunny/egg mode, there are a few Easter hunts still on the grid, but don’t delay because these will be ending very soon.

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!

Pixie for a Day

*flutters to a stop*    Heyya FabFree – ers!


I’ve given up completely to the RP side of my nature today. Forget high fashion… I just want to run around nekkid and be a wild pixie for awhile! Stargazer has supplied the perfect new skin to be in for this. This is the “Dusted Fairy” skin with the pretty face paints, wings with a HUD for six styles, hair and eyes prize package for the Fair Play Jewel Gacha. The Jewel Gacha is kind of different because most of the merchants at Fair Play have donated an item to the Fair wide Gacha game. Just click on one of the big jewels scattered around the Fair Play site and get in on the fun for just 20L per play.

My pretty jewelry is also from the Jewel Gacha. This is the “Silverstone” set from Eveline in the Box. You get upper armlets for both arms and bracelets for both wrists in one prize.


Last, but not least, is my gorgeous crown of spring roses and ribbons from Blue Moon Enterprise. I just love the pretty details!


Fair Play and the Jewel Gacha runs until March 27 so if you want to be a pixie too, hurry hurry over!

Grim, And Yet So Pleasant A Find!

whctlb 1

Hi everyone! Sadly, the excellent Jack Or Jill Hunt is over. There is, however, at least one free prize a creator has left out for us straggling hunters, and it is not to be missed! The Little Bat offered the Grim Outfit W/Hud for the Jack Or Jill Hunt containing the Grim Jacket & Shirt shown above. The jacket is a one piece mesh combo featuring a simple denim jacket, well-textured and very realistic-looking over a foreboding skull T-Shirt. The Tee is texture change via included hud and offers you six color choices to choose from. I really appreciate it when designers offer us something with texture change options. It moves the items high up on my “Wanted” list. That isn’t all that is included in this free gift though! The Little Bat also throws in the jeans I am wearing in two styles: Straight and Tapered. Both versions come in five sizes as does the Jacket & Shirt combo, so getting a good fit will be a breeze. Run to get this item, it could be gone any minute!

WHC const vest 1

Pru previously mentioned a store over at the shopping event called Swank here. Swank is a themed monthly sales event and this month the theme is “Luck Of The Irish”! There are free gifts and inexpensive gachas to be found there, so it is worth popping by for a visit. It just so happens when I was over there I found something I liked quite a bit! The Safety Vest – The Boss from Dita Couture is at The Swank Event on a Gacha for only 30L per play. It looks very realistic and while it isn’t something you would normally wear every day, it is definitely a fun item to pick up. It could come in very handy role-playing on Second Life or if you happen to be a male dancer, it could be part of a very sexy stage outfit. Either way, for only 30L it is something that deserves your consideration.

Also at The Swank Event are the free eyes I am wearing this week, the Ivernia Shamrock Eyes from Dulce Secrets. To show off how nice they are, I inset a close up on the top picture which hopefully does them justice. They are offered in both regular and Mesh versions and make for an excellent free gift to pick up. I collect eyes on SL and was thrilled to add these to my collection, I hope you will be too!

That’s it for me, now it’s time to wander off to first life for a while. I hope you all have some fun tonight on the grid, however you enjoy spending your time there. For now I will leave you my friends with my best wishes, have fun and see you on the grid very soon!—–WHC Riler

March Comes In Like A Rabbit!

whc ashburylavarock 1

Happy Wednesday, everyone! Here we are in March with a whole new set of hunts and group gifts to pick up! When you do what I do, the beginning of a new month is always the most exciting period. Don’t forget what they say: March comes in like a rabbit, scurrying around picking up free gifts, and goes out like a rabbit, too! A much heavier one, weighed down with a glut of new inventory items, but still a rabbit!

Ashbury Designs is a very nice place to get male clothes. They are on my list of must visits at the beginning of a new month, and for good reason. Ashbury Designsfree group gifts have a way of making a home for themselves in my inventory and certainly their current one is a fine example. The Ace Military Shirt is a one piece mesh combo. Comprised of an open blue denim shirt with a very subtle camouflage pattern and a black T-Shirt, it is a simple look which looks very real-world plausible. Comfortable looking, it comes in 3 Mesh sizes, 2 Fitmesh and one Fitmesh for TMP bodies. The shade of blue of the shirt is beautiful and the detail and texture is extremely attractive! This is one free group gift you definitely should not pass up.

Lavarock has a new store and I am truly happy to welcome them back! For those of you who read my autobiography, you will recall I became a blogger partially because of a great free group gift Lavarock produced. I simply did not have enough friends on SL to tell about it, so I began blogging! I was thrilled when my editor, Andi, told me there was a new group gift in their store and I assure you it is excellent! The Urban Male Sneakers are a pair of Hi-top shoes for regular avy feet, so everyone can wear them if they like. In fact, since there is a woman’s version out in the women’s area at Lavarock as well, nearly everyone can wear them! They are Mesh and extremely cool. The most spectacular thing about them is the texture change hud! These sneakers come with a MONSTER HUD which gives you access to 15 sneaker textures, 5 laces, 5 tongues, 5 straps, 6 sock variations including hide and 2 sole colors. EPIC work on the hud, Lavarock. Thank you very much! For a free group gift, a hud like this is rare and these shoes are going to be keepers. Go get ‘em, people!

That’s all for me tonight. Rest assured I will be hopping around the grid picking up more freebies and cheapies tomorrow. Until then, I hope you take advantage of all the fun Second Life has to offer. See you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Last Chance Menstuff Hunters!

whc menstuff final 2_001

Hello to all you Fabbies out there! (I prefer Fab Freaks as a nickname but, quite frankly, I am afraid Love will chuck another stapler at me. Her aim is true.) The Menstuff Hunt ends on Monday so this is your last chance to pick up some very nice garments. Since we are out of virtual beer anyway, its time to get off the virtual couch and get out there hunting! I am going to be slightly briefer than usual in order to get this post up as soon as possible, so my apologies in advance to the creators of the impressive items I am showing off. They definitely deserve more individual attention then I can give them today.

That said, The IMaGE Factory is offering the free Tommy Hoodie Combo as their prize for the Menstuff Hunt! While the color looks fantastic in the above picture it is slightly misleading because the garment comes with a huge texture change hud giving the shirt 18 textures, the hoodie 16 and the jacket 12 textures! It comes in five sizes, two of which are fitmesh. Truly an impressive hunt gift, the current hunt hint is “so full of light, but always in shade”.

Swirl Poses made the pose I am using above, part of their 1L hunt prize for the Menstuff Hunt. The box includes five male poses and appears to be a set that I will be able to use for quite a while. If you take pictures on Second Life, you might want to pick this up, it could come in handy.

whc menstuff final 5_001

FashionNatic‘s Brutus open Shirt is one piece of Mesh including the open shirt and the very scary looking skull and crossbones T-Shirt. It looks great, kind of a dark and dangerous look perfect whether you play guitar in a grunge band or stay at home listening to pirated MP3s! Arrrrrrgh, it’s a pirate’s life mateys, pick this free Menstuff gift up and look cool living it.

If you look closely at the above picture you will see I snuck two bracelets into this post. They are the 1L Menstuff hunt prize from Glint. The Leather Bracelet With Metal Rings is the wider of the two and my personal favorite because of the rough masculine look. Both bracelets however are top quality and worth adding to your own personal collections. Click on my pic above twice and you can get a nice close up view of the items. I think you might like them.

The free Menstuff hunt prize from Pics n Poses is a nice pose called Contemplating! As you can tell in the above picture, it is a very natural looking relaxed pose. The best thing about this pose is one day I can use it to show off some really nice footwear, and those poses are hard to find.

This concludes my Menstuff coverage for now. Hurry now, the hunt will end tomorrow. Have fun and enjoy your Second Lives my friends, take care and I’ll see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Shiny Shabby Surely!

whc rispetto 1_001

whc rispetto 2_002

Hello everyone! It is I, your intrepid male freebie/cheapie hunter with a quick post for you. February will be over soon and will bring to a close two fabulous hunts: Menstuff and Jack Or Jill. If you have been putting it off, now is the time to start hunting! The amount of quality men’s hunt prizes available at the moment is impressive, and all yours for a little bit of effort! Even more time sensitive, though, is a pair of freebies that are available right now and will not be out very much longer.

Shiny Shabby is celebrating it’s anniversary on Second Life by throwing a big sales event featuring an unbelievable number of freebies. The Hoorenbeek stall at Shiny Shabby is offering as its free anniversary gift the Mesh Military Boots in Burgundy. As with all Hoorenbeek products, the texturing is amazing and the overall quality is excellent. I never pass up an opportunity to pick up free Hoorenbeek and neither should you, especially since this gift comes with both male and female versions in the box. The boots come in regular and short variations with the eyelets and laces texture changable via hud, and if that isn’t generous enough they also include the mesh jeans i am wearing and the mesh belt in two variants! While over at Shiny Shabby also check out what Amacci has put out as a free gift. The Zenith Eyes in Mocha are a striking set of Mesh eyes adjustable via hud. Additionally included are versions for those who prefer using legacy eyes. As you can see by the many Shiny Shabby items featured on Fab Free this week, it is an event not to be missed. Now you have two more excellent reasons to head on over there!

I started this post mentioning two great men’s hunts that are winding up this month. Rispetto Designsfree Jack Or Jill Hunt gift is the Devin MESH Jacket & Hoodie in Army. As you can see from my lead picture it is a very casual looking garment. Appearing to be made up of multiple layers, this one piece of integrated mesh is beautifully textured to look well-worn and comfortable. Coming in five sizes, two of which are fitmesh, this is a free hunt gift definitely worth getting your hands on. Also on the Jack Or Jill Hunt is the free hunt gift from 7 Deadly S{K}ins. The River in Taupe skin is a very handsome skin. Even though I usually like to show off skins by getting close to naked, this time I decided to spare all of you the gratuitous near nudity and just tell you it’s a fine example of the kind of quality skins 7 Deadly S{K}ins is known for producing. When you are picking up these two hunt gifts look for the Menstuff Hunt prizes as well since both stores are also participating in that also.

That is all I have for you at the moment, but rest assured I will try to tempt you into going hunting at least once more before this month is over. Until next time my friends, take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Gothic is back!

Roses are Red

I admit… all the hearts and frills were making me a little itchy. So when I saw that Pixel Box Designs was giving out two amazing gifts for FREE I had to snatch them up and put together a quick Gothic look for Valentine’s day. Both of these offers are TIME SENSITIVE. You will only have 3 days to grab them up. So do not wait!

If you like my Roses and Key Necklace in red (the box also contains a blue rose version), you can pick this gift up FREE at the Pixel Box main-store location. It is FREE to everyone, no group required. Just buy it for 0L. But it may only be out for today and another day or so, so hurry!

If you like my eye patch (eye certainly do! *wink wink*) then you can easily nab it off the marketplace as it is there only as a special FREE to everyone gift. Again, this is a limited time offer so do not wait! It also comes with a lovely rose ring to match (not shown).
