A modern twist

Good afternoon, FabFree readers,

a modern twist

I almost missed out on one of the very best Hunts going on in Second Life. The Twisted Hunt: Divination only runs until September 30th but the prizes are well worth the hurry. This is the ‘Modern Celtic Jacket’ from Goth 1c0 and it’s one such prize. The beautifully built jacket with hood comes in the standard mesh sizes XS-XL and has a good alpha layer. The hood with the rather hawkish look to it, is part of the jacket itself. There is also a lovely lady’s gift hidden at Goth 1c0 as well. But, as I said, the Hunt only lasts until the 30th so don’t delay.

I remain most sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture

Autumn Afternoon

Heyya FabFree!

Autumn Afternoon

I know it’s not Tuesday but I’m feeling a fantasy role play mood coming on. Maybe because I picked up this gorgeous frock from BlueMoon Enterprise for free. This is “Coreen” in a lovely rusty red and it’s the latest group gift for September. The dress comes in the standard mesh sizes XXS-L and has a good alpha layer. As with everything from BlueMoon I’ve seen, Coreen is simply stunning in build and in details.ย  Don’t miss this one!

I was also excited to see that Mina has put out a free gift for the Second Life Frees & Offers group. The group is free to join and you can pick up tons of great freebies all around the grid. Mina is giving us this sweet hair style named, appropriately, “Mena” this month. Mena comes in a materials and a no materials version in this lovely light brown color. If you haven’t discovered Mina this is a great way to try it out for free… and get addicted.๐Ÿ˜‰

As with all free gifts, these may not be around long so grab those group tags and get going!

In the Mood for Roleplay

In the Mood for Roleplay

It’s Sunday! And as usual, The White Armory has out a beautiful FREE group gift for us to enjoy. Roleplay is a staple in my Second Life to do list, and I was really excited about this Sunday’s FREE gift and wanted to show it to you, with a reminder to head down to The White Armory and pick up this gift before it’s gone. You’ll have until next Sunday, when a new FREE gift will be set out.

This gift includes the dress you see me wearing in the picture above, as well as system leggings and socks, which I opted out of due to my mesh body. I added a few other details, such as daggers and a pair of boots, and the outfit was perfect without adding the leggings. The dress is mesh and comes in all the standard sizes, making it a great addition to your roleplay wardrobe! Head to The White Armory and pick up this great gift!

As for me… I’m off to see what kind of roleplay trouble I can stir up at the sim I call my roleplay home now that I have the perfect outfit!๐Ÿ˜‰

Home From Work

Home From Work

When I saw that there was a hunt dedicated to work, working, and various jobs, I was really thrilled on a number of levels. I know that often there are contests in Second Life where you dress up to fit various themes of employment, but also I felt that this was a great opportunity for Second Life designers to show solidarity for unsung heroes. I was not disappointed. The hunt was full of wonderful things to celebrate jobs of all walks of life.

In the end, I decided to showcase this 1L nurse’s uniform from Blade & Rain. It is a one-piece mesh outfit that comes in all the standard sizes and includes a good alpha layer. What I appreciate most about it, is that it’s “real” nursing wear instead of the “sexy nurse” outfits you usually see. I really admire those who are hard at work in the medical field and it’s nice to have this option available for contests, cosplay, or what-have-you and for only 1L this is a great opportunity to pick up a great working outfit.

The Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It’s Off to Work I Go Hunt ends on Sept 16, so be sure to get out there and hunt down the goodies before it’s over!

Games

Good Morning, FabFree Readers.

Games

Most of the Hunts on the grid are winding down with today being the last day of August. But a few are starting up now, such as the Games of Thrones Hunt in Westeros. This hunt is slightly different in that there are multiple prizes in multiple hunt objects. One hunt object is at the designers main shop while the other prizes are scattered around a central “fair”.ย  I was able to find this men’s denim jacket with attached hoodie and shirtย from “It’s Gau!” at the main fair area for 1L. This is “Jeans Jacket” and it comes in the standard mesh sizes XS-XL and has a good alpha layer. Be sure to pick up the note card that is offered when you land at the fair. It has all the pictures and clues for the Hunt prizes.

The Game of Thrones Hunt in Westeros runs until September 7th.

I remain most sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture

Make Me

Make Me

I’m feeling lazy this morning so I stayed in for a soak. Luckily I have the perfect hunt if you don’t feel like teleporting around to different shops. Have you tried the Marketplace Hunt yet? I found this gorgeous bodysuit from Alpha Female that I had to share with you. It’s called “Make Me” and after putting it on, you certainly can’t make me take it off this morning๐Ÿ˜‰

A little hunting on the marketplace and 5L is all this bodysuit will cost you. You’ll get a system layer as well as appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink mesh bodies. It’s a well made outfit in black and gold for a classic look.

Be sure to hurry, this hunt ends tomorrow, August 28th!

Your Friday Hunt Report

openhighwayhuntGood Morning Fabulous Fans! The end of summer isn’t far off, but there’s still time to participate in some super hunts.

Too tired to actually run around in Second Life? You might want to try the Marketplace Hunt. It takes place entirely on the Marketplace. You just have to look through each online store to find the item that’s only L$5. With 44 stops, that’s a lot of very reasonable shopping.

I love road trip movies, so I’m planning to go out on the Open Highway Hunt. It’s a tiny little hunt with only nine stops, so it should only take about an hour.

If those don’t get you excited, there are plenty of other hunts to choose from. Click the hunt names below until you find the one that’s just right for you.

You say you’re new to hunting? Need help learning the ropes?
Both FabFreeย and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.

Mrs. B’s Designs closing sale :(

Hey FabFree.

MsB's

I have some bad news for us today. Ms.B’s Designs will be closing it’s doors in world.ย ย But, happily,ย it will remain on the Marketplace. All the clothing and poses are now 50% off which is a real bargain for the quality of the items you’ll find at Ms. B’s Design. I picked up the ‘Lovely Luna’ top I’m showing you for just 49L.ย  The past gifts are available for 10L and there are still several free ‘no group needed gifts set out as well. And there’s a wall of men’s outfits for the gentlemen too. Ms. B hasn’t said when she will complately close the store so if you want to drop in you need to hurry.

I hate to see Ms B’s Designย close down, it’s always been a bright spot in my Second Life. But it sounds like Ms.B’s real life is taking off in a wonderful direction. We wish you all the best, Ms. B!

Mistress of Jewells

Mistress of Jewells

Morning is nearly over, but I’m not ready to get out of bed… and I’m sure you can see why! Luxury is mine today with some special finds you will want to be part of!

I love appliers and so the Addicted to Appliers Hunt is proving to be a hunt that I’m really enjoying. I hunted down this pretty lingerie for just 1L at Miss Jewell‘s main-store location. It includes system layers for standard avatars as well as appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, and Lolas.

I also stopped by Genre and fell in love with the Lumae “Showgirl” skin that is being showcased at the event. At 100L it is over our 75L limit… but when you consider that you get every possible applier imaginable for that one teensy price (plain or freckled), I think you’ll understand why I wanted to let you know about this beautiful skin! I picked it up in Tone 4 (fawn) but there were three other tones out that you can pick up for the same low price.

P.S. If you love my hair and jewels, you can get those at the current round of Collabor88. Exile has this amazing hair out (necklace included) with a color change hud for the pearls!

Your Friday Hunt Report

WS-Hunt-Logo-Aug-16There are some nifty sim and store hunts going on right now. The Botanica Butterfly Hunt just began a couple of days ago and it’s always fun to run around Botanica. I’m told that this hunt is also educational.

My partner and I have been working on the massive Around The Grid in 80 Days hunt. With 146 stores, it’s going to take us a few days to complete, but we have until the end of September, so we should make it.

Speaking of big hunts, you’ll want to get an early start on the Womenstuff Hunt. It has 150 stops, so bring some friends and bring some lunch, because this one is going to take you a while.

Not seeing the perfect hunt for you? Check out the big boodle of hunts that are coming in the next couple of months!

Here’s a little something for merchants. If you’d like to get your store into a hunt, these are the ones that are looking for participants…
