Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL here-comes-summer-full-perm-hunt-posterHappy Friday my Fabulous Friends! Summer will be officially here on Sunday… summer solstice… the longest day of the year. Well, for those of us in the northern hemisphere anyway. If you live down under, then it’s mid winter. But that’s neither here nor there. There are a bunch of great hunts going on anyway, and many of them have a summer theme… or at least make a nod in that direction.

We’re starting to see more full-perm hunts, which is great if you’re a builder or a content creator. Check out the Here Comes Summer or the Keep Calm & BBQ Full Perm hunts if you like full-perm stuff.

Both FabFree and HUNT SL have excellent pages if you want to get started with hunting if you haven’t been before, and some great tips even if you’re a veteran hunter.

Check out all these hunts and find the one that’s right for you. Poking the names will lead you to more information.

See you out on the hunt!

Red Rose

Rose Red

Hello Fab Free’rs! I have to tell you that I’ve been quite inspired lately, and I’m very pleased with the result. It’s amazing what a single conversation can spark within your imagination! Further inspiration for this sinister gothic lolita look came from the dress. This highly detailed mesh dress is a Marketplace special by an up-and-coming designer. The Antimon shop is currently on the Marketplace only, and you’ll find several items all within this playful goth genre. You’ll find this dress by Antimon for just 50 lindens on the Marketplace.

With this demon dolly look cultivating in my mind, the latest group gift from Besom (formerly Soonsiki) was a perfect fit! The blunt doll-like bangs and thick locks of this hairstyle compliment the look perfectly. This hairstyle from Besom is a FREE group gift, and the group is currently FREE to join. This cute style comes in a complete fatpack of color options, along with an additional version for bustier avatars.

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I’ve been rather attached to my Lelutka heads, I often switch between Stella and Aria. Considering my love for changing up my look, I’ve been excited to find some fun makeup appliers for the Lelutka heads. These ombre lips are one of the several variations available on a lipstick hud by Jack Spoon. I found this particular set on the Marketplace for just 75 lindens.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Bat…. Or “We’re all mad here…”

“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.”
“I don’t much care where –”
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go.”

Like the Cheshire Cat’s quote, no matter where you go in the Alice’s Adventures in Sexyland Fair, you’re going to find something fun, outrageous and just a little smexy.  This is the ‘Cheshire’ set  from The Little Bat.  The corset and skirt come in four iconic themes from Alice in Wonderland: The Queen, The Guard, The Hatter and The Cheshire ( which I’m wearing today) Each outfit comes with both the corset and the skirt as separates making them nicely versatile.  The Little Bat has also set out the cute “Drink Me” bottle necklace as a 1L gift. And if all that wasn’t enough, there are also two gahca machines at TLB: the “Elegant Bow” I’m showing and a matching “Elegant Chocker” both for 50L per play.

LitteBat Collage

7 Deadly Skins has also set out a nifty free gift for us. This is the “Patience” makeup on a tattoo layer. I love the soft lavender eye shadow  and the understated lip color.  Completing my look today is La Boheme’s fair gift for SLink nails: “LB Deco Fleur’ for just 1L.

The “Alice in Sexyland” Fair runs until June 26th so grab this taxi and head on over!

Lazy Sunday

Hello FabFree Folks! I hope you’re having a wonderful Sunday afternoon. This is the perfect time to take a look at the Lazy Sunday sales.. it being…you know, Sunday… ANYWAY…   I knew the minute I saw Plastik’s name on the list I would be in for a treat and I wasn’t wrong!

LazySunday

This is the ‘Nyla Dress’ in the ‘Rorye’ pattern and it’s the Lazy Sunday special for 75L.  The dress comes in three gorgeous patterns for the sale and believe me, I really dithered over which one to choose.  While I was there, I took a quick wander around the Plastik mainstore and I am so glad I did.  I found this lovely gothic style necklace in one of the 45 gacha machines upstairs. Yes, forty five machines! And most of them were 50L.  This is the ‘Furah’ necklace and it’s in one of those 50L per play machines.

Lazy Sunday only lasts until 11:59 tonight (SL time) so enjoy the bargains!

White Widows Make the Best Outlaws

Sometimes we forget to steer our own ship. We forget that we are the captain in these turbulent seas. We let an ocean of troubles wash over us and crash us against rocks and we cry out to an invisible Poseidon that no longer rules the seas: “This is unfair!”

White Widows Make the Best Outlaws [2]

So, I say to the sailor — “Come back to the helm and steer yourself away from oblivion and back to the center of the glimmering sea which once rose about you in undulating waves! Do not wait on the deck of the boat while others steer your ship! They do not stand at the helm like immobile boulders! They are but human also! Do not wait for a turn at the wheel which may never come! Take to the wheel, fight tentacle monsters, dive for treasure, shoot cannons, seek adventure!”

But do it in style! Because a girl has got to look good while talking to dead men on pirate ships! And I have just the list of treasure booty to perk up that swarthy wardrobe in your empty trunk! Check it out!

If you head to LUAS they have great group gifts as well as several Lucky Boards. You have to join the group for access, but the group is FREE. I am wearing Luas May Outlaw in Black as I was lucky enough to have my letter come up when I landed! I also headed inside where they have an amazing assortment of gachas on display, all for reasonable prices. One sweet spin on the Luas Iballa gatcha and I had a Bracers, Pauldrons & Crown set in Red for only 50L (this is a great gatcha as instead of single pieces every spin gets you a full set, just a different color! <3 for that!).

White Widows Make the Best Outlaws

I topped the look off with a few other great accessories. [White~Widow] has a great new group gift out — a Face tattoo that sets around the eyes called “Mexico.” It comes in a color pack with 5 colors as well as appliers for Slink Visage and TMP Mesh Heads! A steal of a deal for a great FREE group gift (group is FREE to join!). The jewelry is was borrowed from the guy next to me… he didn’t look like he needed it. (Kidding!) But it is a current men’s gift set from Chop Zuey (group gift/350L to join) called Screaming Dead Men’s Choker and Ring and was easily resized to fit a lady.

Be sure to check out the Sim I visited! ROSSAVIK – Hell’s Gate Island is a zombie and steampunk with damage enabled and aliens, zombies, and tentacles abound for you to zap, shoot, stab or otherwise have fun attempting to battle! (It took me more than a few tries to get my pictures taken as I kept getting eaten!) — but it was loads of fun!

There are plenty of hunts to go on too, and lots of themes. Steampunk… check. Beaches… check. Pajamas… check… and lot’s more to choose from.

Both FabFree and HUNT SL have excellent pages if you want to get started with hunting. So read up before you exit through your front door.

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Explore ValyniaGood morning fabulous friends! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Wednesday, June 10.

Summer is the prevalent hunt theme right now. Go figure. You can partake of a bunch of different summer themed hunts, so grab your swimsuit, beach towel, and flip-flops and get some hot weather hunting done.

The Explore Valyria Hunt is the top hunt this week. It’s a sim hunt, but what a bunch of great stores in this sim…Etchaflesh, 7 Deadly Skins, KlubWerk, and Room69! Lots of great prizes to find in this one.

If you’re a her, then the For Her Hunt has been built for you. It’s a L$1 hunt with 22 stops. So a couple hours of hunting will get you all kinds of clothing, shoes, and jewelry. I browsed through the prize pics on the hunt web site and there’s some pretty nice stuff in this one. Too bad I’m a him.

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 menstuffLogo-512It’s always fun when somebody tells you how much they love what you do. I was setting up our build for the SL12B Community Celebration and the area assistant who was helping me with the parcel details saw the exhibits and said “oh… I love hunts! Do you have a group?” It’s warm fuzzies like that which make my day.

There are some dang good hunts going on right now. The June hunts are in full swing. I have to get it in gear and do the Menstuff Hunt. It’s one of my favorites from previous years and the source of about half my wardrobe. No joke!

Both FabFree and HUNT SL have excellent pages if you want to get started with hunting. It’s really pretty easy. If you can walk, cam, and solve clues at the same time, you’ll be a natural. No really… it’s not that hard.

So click the names of the hunts that look interesting to you. You’ll be whisked off to more info.

See you out on the hunt!
