Your Friday Hunt Report

MOH6 - FAREWELL SUMMER HUNTI’m sure I’ve mentioned this before, but I still have a lot of fun going out hunting. My partner and I go together while we’re discussing the hints via Skype, and fan out looking for the hunt prizes. Hunting in pairs and groups makes it a social event! Then there’s all the free (or very low cost) stuff that we come home with, so it’s a win-win.

There are some really good hunts going on right now. I’m planning to complete the Men Only Hunt 6 before it’s over, and then maybe take a run at the Bleeping Bunny Hunt 3. These are just the ones at the top of my own personal selections. I’m sure that you too can find a hunt or two to love as well. So take a gander at all these hunts and then check a few of them out.

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.

Precious Nobility

Today I feel like a queen… and I have just the stuff to make you feel like one too. A cart wash dress here… some group gifts there… and it will all come together like a Precious Noble Creation.

Precious Nobility [2]

If you haven’t stopped by the Precious Designs Cart at the Cart Wash sale yet, you simply do NOT want to miss out on the offerings this designer has set out for you at just 10L each. In the picture above, I am showcasing the Fire Work dress for you in all its glory and fine detail. For just 10L the dress comes in all the standard mesh sizes, plus fitted mesh as well as custom mesh fits for Maitreya and Slink Bodies AND a color change hud with SIX color options — that’s a lot of dress for 10L!

You’ll also notice my noble gold crown, courtesy of the newly opened Noble Creations. It has rich detail fitting for any queen, princess, goddess, lover of fantasy, or roleplayer and has a nifty resize script included. It is one of several FREE Inauguration Group Gifts (the group is FREE to join) that they are offering for their store’s opening.

Precious Nobility [1]

Noble Creations is also giving out several other fabulous FREE Inauguration Group Gifts to celebrate their opening and you won’t want to miss out. Above you can see the intricately detailed and carved Antique Coffee Table with its inlaid wood and added knobs in different colors and sizes on the sides. This was a paired gift that came with the elaborate Antique Sofa that Astrid is reclining on, which includes single sits and lays for females and males as well as a few couple cuddles. Both of these items were FREE, low prim, and also included a color change hud with four color choices!

In addition, behind Astrid you will see a rich and thick Noble Creations Mesh Curtain. Just like the Antique Sofa, this too is a FREE Inauguration Group Gift, is low prim, and comes with a color change hud with four color choices, and is also resizable to add to its versatility. Be sure to grab these gifts up before they are gone!

While you are at it, make sure to stop by the Precious Designs Cart at the Cart Wash Sale. These outfits are simply fit for a queen! Or at least any Second Life Fashionista! Check out the offerings on the cart below!

The Bi Annual Wash Cart Sale – Aaric’s

The Cart Sale is still running full steam here at the Wash, if you haven’t guessed. ;)

Bi Annual Wash Cart Sale - Aaric's Designs

My Cart pick today is Aaric’s Designs. It’s so good to see a designer who is still making great clothes for the system layers. If you aren’t into Mesh, Aaric’s is your go to Cart. I’m showing off the Renegade Jacket and the Leather Pants w/belt. I really love the Sci Fi look to this set. I do believe I will be tucking it away into my Role Play closet for keeps.

The Bi Annual Wash Cart Sale – Dark Water Designs

Dark Water Designs is one of those designers that never fails to impress me.

The Bi Annual Wash Cart Sale - Dark Water Designs

And the Cart this designer has set up for us at the Wash’s sale is no exception. I had no trouble picking out what I wanted to show this time. Not because everything wasn’t awesome but because when I saw the Lolita Jumper I was in love! It’s a simple thing but the details are amazing. I love the color, the pattern … just everything. You get the five standard Mesh sizes and the alpha.

Dark Water Designs- CART

Dark Water Designs has some really cool items set out for our guys, too. I’m really taken with the graffiti jeans.

You have until September 16th to get your shopping on here at the Wash!

An Enchanted Oceane

The Enchantment Hunt drew me back again, as well as the chance to show off some fabulous goodies at two other stores. If your into cosplay or fantasy roleplay… this is your month to make away like a bandit — or mermaid as the case may be!

Enchanted Oceane [2]

I recently checked out the FREE Ball at Analog Dog and discovered it had been updated. There are a few new styles inside, including this great rigged mesh style called Lolly all for FREE. It comes in light reds with a color change hud and though you have to hunt for the nearly transparent bubble at the back of the sim, it’s well worth the search!

I also stopped by Oceane and played the in-store Gachas which had some really wonderful prizes for lovers of fantasy avatars! My Oceane Lauren Fantasy Skin in Blue was a 75L gacha prize and was just perfect for this underwater look — but don’t hesitate to check this one out even if blue is not your color, because the gacha had 19 total colors as possible prizes. It does not come with appliers, but don’t let that deter you. I usually have a difficult time matching skins without them, but was able to match this skin to my Slink hands within minutes because the shading near the wrists is made to blend so easily.

I also played the Oceane Fairytale Lips gacha and landed the Rainbow Rare hook line and sinker to add to my skin. Woot! It was only 50L per spin and added a nice touch to this fantasy skin.

And all mermaids have to eat, yes? If you peek at the picture below, my fun Swallow Yum Fishie (20 possible colors) was a 15L Gacha prize also from Oceane.

Enchanted Oceane [1]

And the Enchantment hunt continues, but only until September 5th, so be sure to make your final rounds to pick up the fabulous gifts before you miss out. In this post, I’m showcasing a few more for you! These two poses are the FREE hunt gifts from [Black Tulip] called Ariel. Astrid’s stunning mesh mermaid tail and bra are the FREE Enchantment gift from Mer-Chandise Cove.

You’ll have to look a little closer at the pictures to catch the final gifts I’m showing, but I’ve always been a firm believer that small details are what make an avatar stand out. My pink nose piercing (which comes with a color change hud offering over 20 color options as well as options to change glow, glossiness, and and brightness) is the FREE Enchantment Hunt Gift from Gaeline Creations.

If you take a swim by no.Match, you’ll be able to pick up this gorgeously detailed Mermaids Hairpin as their FREE offering for the Enchantment Hunt. And last (but certainly not least) Astrid’s mysterious, come-hither eyes are a FREE Enchantment Hunt gift from antielle. There are six generous color choices in the package, though I’m wearing the blue.

A Swan in Eden

I think I can turn just about anything into a fantasy of some sort…

A Swan in Eden [2]

… and so far I’m having a blast with the Cart Wash Sale!

There are so many amazing creators who are giving us SL fashionistas a great chance to enhance our wardrobe for minimal wallet guilt and it’s truly glorious. And the Less Than 3 cart at the Wash Sale stole my heart with its sexy Eden Jumpsuits!

What I love about this super sexy cut-out body suit is that with the right accessories and in the right environment, it works for fetish wear, casual wear, fantasy wear — you name it! And not only did it come in system layers — but for only 10L you get omega appliers to work with your mesh body as well! (I’m showcasing it here in the white version with my Maitreya Lara Mesh body.)

The body suit also comes in a gorgeous hot pink color, as well as a rich brown, and a svelte black that were all only 10L each. I’d be sure to grab up all these colors as this is a steal of a deal you won’t want to pass up!

A Swan in Eden [1]

For me the perfect accessory to make this sensuous body suit fit my fantasy wardrobe was the newest group gift from Finesmith Jewelry. The lovely lavender headpiece and necklace — aptly named Swan Garden — were striking when paired with this body suit and gave it the fantasy look I desired. The Group Gift is free if you are in the Group, and the Group is only 25L to join… well worth it in my mind considering that there are many past gifts still available to pick up. Just turn to your left as you enter the store!

Below is a picture of the other Less Than 3 Cart Wash offerings. As you can see, they are all fantastic! Be sure to stop by this fun cart and make off with the goodies!

Your Friday Hunt Report

Fi_s_Hunts_-_African_Summer_Hunt_-_POSTER_IMAGEGood morning Fabulous Friends! August is drawing to a close and a bunch of hunts will be taking their final bows this weekend, so if you have been procrastinating, it’s time to get MOVING. All that free (or nearly free) stuff is laying around just waiting for you to come by and pick it up, but time grows short.

There will, of course, be some shiny new hunts to partake of starting on Tuesday, September 1st, but I’ll get in to telling you about those when the time comes.

I hope that all of you are enjoying the hunts. Myself… I need to get out on more of them too… or at least start unpacking all the boxes from the last few hunts, which is almost as fun as Christmas morning!

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.

Something Steam(Punk)y!

Something Steam(punk)y

I’d never miss a chance to try out a new character, cosplay, or fantasy! Though I admit, I’ve never done steampunk. So when I saw this amazing hat at the NSP Florals Cart at the Wash Sale (and only 10L — Woot!), I was all a twitter! It was a chance to put together a steam punk look with a great accessory from top quality designer and once I had the top hat on, I was thrilled!

I love the combination of rich fabrics, florals, and metal feathers! Then it was off to adventuring at a steampunk sim! (If you have time, check out New Babbage — I linked you below… very cool place!)

But don’t be mistaken! The NSP Floral Cart at the Wash Sale is not just steampunk! Oh no! Versatility is the name of the game! This creative creator is offering up several gorgeous vintage hats (with the hair included!) as well as beautiful floral accessories that could easily finish off a stunning modern gown or top off a Gothic vampire’s ebony tresses.

The possibilities are endless and at only 10L per purchase, you won’t want to pass any of these beauties up!
