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.

Fire and Ash

Hello again, Fabfree.

fire and ash

As I mentioned in my last post, I have been participating in several Hunts this week and I needed to stop in and show you this elegant vintage suit from Fire and Ash Design. This is ‘Mobster’ in black and red and it’s the 1L prize for the ‘For Him Hunt 2’  ‘Mobster’ comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL and is all one piece. The hat is a separate item and has a resize script to get the right fit. While the suit is called Mobster and it certainly does harken back to the 1930s, I feel it would make an excellent Steampunk look or really any vintage outfit.

The ‘For Him Hunt runs until July 31st so don’t delay.

I remain most sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture

Once Upon a PurpleMoon

Once upon a Purple Moon

Once upon a PurpleMoon… there was a great group gift and you only needed the group tag to get it! The group tag was 50L but the regular group gifts and special offers made it well worth the join fee! This month’s group gift is called Tiffany… and it is every woman’s dream come true…

This dress comes with a half skirt (shown) or a full skirt (not shown) add on, as well as mesh to support all the major mesh body types, including an auto hide for Maitreya bodies! This dress even includes a beautiful sculpt bow for your waist! All you’ll need is to find a great pair of heels somewhere and you’ll be set… just be sure you don’t leave one behind at the stroke of midnight!

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?!

Not a Wall Flower

Not a Wall Flower

Call me old school if you will, but Casablanca is one of my favorite movies… right up there with Citizen Kane. So when I realized there was a Casablanca remake Sim in Second Life I knew I wanted to check it out. Loki got there before me, but my turn has long been overdue… I just hadn’t found the right outfit… until now.

The Moda Midnight Mania board locked down again yesterday, giving me another set of great FREE shoes for my slink feet. These heels are stunning and come in white with a hud to change the metal on the underside (gold, silver, or bronze). If you missed them when they locked down yesterday, they are there also again today, only in a slightly modified version… so they are worth locking down again today if you picked them up yesterday. I’ve heard a few people say they had some delivery issues. Not to worry, just hit the redelivery terminal and they will be sent to you!

And then I realized that I’d missed the June group gift for TBO The Beautiful Ones! But luckily it is still out! This Venus Dress in Turquoise is still out, though I’m not sure for how long. It comes in all your standard fitmesh sizes and also supports all the major mesh body types like Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza. It has a beautiful front, and equally dramatic back (with a plunging back… phew… sexy) and fits like a dream.

There are several ways you can pick up this stunner. If you are a group member (the group membership is 25L) the dress is yours FREE, just pay the terminal 1L and your 1L is immediately refunded and the dress is delivered to you. You can also opt to pay the special price of just 10L if you don’t have any group space, or wish to opt out of joining the group. OR if you are already a subscriber, you can click the subscriber and the dress will be delivered to you completely FREE, no group required. Note: this does not work for new subscriber members, you must have been a past subscriber, so this is a good reason to subscribe and stay a subscriber!

Not a Wall Flower 2

Though I admit that Casablanca the movie was in black and white… I always imagine it being a colorful world. When I saw this FREE group gift flower headpiece by Finesmith (the group is FREE to join), I knew I had to add it to my look… it just had the right feel to finish off what I wanted to feel (yes lots of feels in there right?). Because of course at Casablanca there can never really be any wall flowers… not really… or if they are, they are wall flowers in disguise, pretending to be wall flowers when they are really not. Or that’s somehow the way I imagine that world. “Play it again, Sam!”

Off the Beaten Path

Off the Beaten Path

Hear ye, Hear ye! Calling all roleplayers! And anyone who loves great cosplay! Or just fabulous medieval clothing! You don’t have much time to get in on this deal… so make haste! And run… errrr teleport… to The White Armory, right away!

The White Armory is discontinuing over 200 gowns and outfits Sunday, July 3rd… but they are turning that into a positive for roleplayers (and anyone else who loves their clothes). All of these beautiful items are on clearance for only 25L per item until that date. These are older items, mostly flexi and standard avatar gowns, however I did find some mesh items in the discount section, as I am sporting above. Either way, all the outfits and gowns are beautiful, and the sale is worth taking a look for the avid roleplayer who would like to save some Linden.

To find the sale, take the “portal to the discount level of the store and look for the bright pink wall” (directions per the notice in The White Armory).

Happy clearance shopping!

Pixel Girl Pixel World

Pixel Life

Hello Fab Free! I don’t know about you guys, but I still can’t get over all the awesome FREE gifts that are out there currently, especially with so many awesome designers celebrating Second Life’s 13th Birthday. I recently went to Fantasy Collective, and there are tons of SL13B gifts! One of which are these stunning glittery silver heels from Empire. Speaking of glitter, what better to go with glittery heels than a gorgeous glittery dress?! Pink Cherry has this sparkly black dress as one of their current group gifts. To top everything off, quite literally, Clawtooth has out a FREE for everyone hairstyle, but you have to hurry, it’ll only be there until June 30th! Pixel GirlThese FREE shoes by Empire are the SL13B gift Empire set out at Fantasy Collective. They truly were the inspiration for this look. I’ve been seeing a lot of glittery items recently, and I’m not the least bit sad about it! These completely FREE shoes are an exclusive color, and the gift includes a pair to fit Lara, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Freya, Isis, and Venus bodies since the heel comes high up the back. There’s also a color change hud included to let you add some color to the sole of the shoe and change the metal of the buckle. Run over to the Fantasy Collective and grab these stunning FREE shoes from Empire while they are still available!

I just about squealed I was so excited when I came across this dress from Pink Cherry. It’s so perfect for the sparkly shoes! This classy yet sexy off the shoulder dress is one of the FREE group gifts available at Pink Cherry. You will need to join the group to get the gift, but the Pink Cherry group is FREE to join. With this gift you’ll receive the dress in standard mesh sizes, along with several alphas for the best possible fit. I felt ready for a swanky party in this pretty little black dress!

Finally, Clawtooth has put out a cute mid-length hairstyle for FREE at their main store. This pretty style comes in 3 colors, “bombshell”, “coffee with cream”, and “softest black”. If you’re unfamiliar with the Clawtooth hair colors, that roughly translates to blonde, light brown, and very dark brown. There’s no need to join a group to get this pretty wavy hairstyle, just head on over to Clawtooth and pay the vendor nothing, as weird as that sounds. haha I’ve always liked Clawtooth hair, and this one is more than worth the minuscule amount of effort. Don’t forget, this FREEbie is only available until June 30th!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Soft Lavender

Soft Lavender

If you love Junbug dresses… today is your lucky day! Junbug has generously set out their beautiful mesh Antoinette dress in three different colors for just 30L each. I’m showing you the lovely lavender shade  in the picture above. This dress has a cinched waist and a full skirt with a pretty bust on it and is classic Junbug quality. It would be beautiful for a formal setting… or perfect for roleplay. But don’t delay! This is a Saturday only deal! You only have until the stroke of midnight SLT!

Soft Lavender 2

I paired my new pretty Junbug dress with the latest June group gift from Ecco Jewelry. The group fee is 200L but remember… you get access to lots of past group gifts and in addition there is a group exclusive lucky letter board inside the store for shoppers. And that’s not all! There are two additional lucky boards in the main-store that are completely FREE… no group required! This pretty necklace comes with a color change hud that allows you to choose between three metal choices: silver (shown), gold, or black — for lots of versatility!

Happy Saturday!

Like Clockwork

It’s 25L Tuesday again, my FabFree Dears!

Like clockwork

I found something in today’s round that thrilled my Steampunky heart! This is ‘Heliria’ from Mystique and it’s an amazing 25L offering.  Heliria comes with the rich chocolate brown under gown and the rough spun jacket as separate pieces in the standard mesh sizes XXS-L. Both pieces are wonderfully well built and the gown could go anywhere or any… when.  Then you also receive the cream colored ‘modesty shirt’ in the system layers and appliers for Omega and TMP. This is one really versatile outfit. You get your choice of a black set or the brown set I’m showing you.

My new hair style is also on the 25L list. This is ‘Lyanna’ from Calico. Lyanna is 25L per color group or a mere 150L for the fat pack. Calico also has a men’s/ unisex style set out for us for 25L Tuesday.

Like clockwork

If you want to get in on the 25L madness…. hurry hurry. It all ends at the stroke of midnight!
