Still Time to Get to Know You This Fall

There is still some fall left in the air, with two days of November left to celebrate before we march into those cold December days. Autumn has always been my favorite season. Sure winter is lovely, but you just can’t beat fall colors in my mind!

Getting to Know You This Fall 1

I wanted to share a few special gifts with you to round out my November Sunday posts. Last Sunday I showed you a spectacular FREE throne by Daffy’s GadgetMania in my post HERE and I mentioned that it was one of three gifts in their offerings for the Get to Know Us Hunt. The Hunt ends November 30th, so it’s not to late to enjoy this fabulous little hunt, but you will want to hurry!

This week I wanted to show you Daffy’s GadgetMania‘s softer side! So I set my pictures inside their Royal Garden Park, which is another of the three FREE hunt gifts. Just as a quick reminder… if haunted houses or disturbing images are too much for you, skip this store on your hunt stops. The hunt to get the gift is a series of clues and steps that can be a bit overwhelming if these types of visuals are more than you can handle.

Also pictured above is the November gift from Shoenique Designs. It is completely FREE with your group tag and the group is FREE to join. Considering that the gift is set along an entire wall of other FREE gifts, you won’t want to pass up this lovely fall wrap style dress! It comes in fitmesh and is perfect for a lady’s day in the park!

Getting to Know You This Fall 2

The Get to Know Us Hunt was small but cozy. It only has ten stops, but each one is really worth it. I also dropped by AmAzInNg CrEaTiOnS to pick up their offering in the Hunt. They put out one box which contained two gifts. Above, Astrid is sporting the Roll Neck Dress 23, which is great for those cool autumn evenings in the park. The other prize is equally gorgeous! You’ll want to grab this FREE goodie bag from this great creator!

Getting to Know You This Fall 3

I wanted to round out my fall look with a reminder that spring would be back… and I wasn’t done with my hunting either. Gachapon! had just the thing to chase away my impending winter blues with their gift for The Get to Know Us Hunt in the form of Lucky Lady Bug Rings! Once you find the FREE hunt gift you’ll be lucky enough to discover that there are nine rings in the box in nine different colors, though I am only showing you the black and the white in the picture above.

Happy fall and happy hunting!


Fall in love with autumn all over again…

Your Friday Hunt Report (On Saturday)

HUNT SL Leaves Are Falling SignI hope  you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and a successful Black Friday. I’m having a wonderful time here on the North Coast of California. It’s a bit chilly but beautiful.

There are LOTS of November hunts that will be ending on Monday, November 30th, so if you’d like get in some last minute hunting then you should do that before they’re gone forever. You’ll find that there is still lots of Thanksgiving goodness to be had.

Of course Christmas is just around the corner now, and I’ll have a whole big snowplow full of December hunts to tell you about in a few days. So let’s all get into the holiday spirit!

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.



Leftover Turkey!

I’m back today with a few more ‘leftover’ Hunts to enjoy.


First up is the 1L Jerky Turkey Hunt and the ‘Tessa” dress from TSR Designs. There are a ton of Hunts going on at TSR so prepare to spend some time. Plus there are group gifts and Gachas to check out.

From a jerky to a dirty. Next is the “Twila brown tweed Peacoat” from Bodhi and it’s the FREE prize for the Dirty Turkey Hunt. This is one of those things in SL that I kinda wish I had in RL. The details are spot on and I love the fall tweed look.


My pretty leaf swirly poses are also part of the Dirty Turkey Hunt. These are from Juxtapose and include the leaves props. The leaves actually slowly swirl around you as you pose. Juxatpose has generously placed both a ladies three pose set and a men’s three pose set in the prize for the Hunt.

Both the Jerky Turkey Hunt and the Dirty Turkey Hunt run until November 30th so don’t delay!


P.S.  Do you remember my shoes from here? They are still available from Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes in the Leaves are Falling Hunt for 1L until November 30th!

Warm Holidays

Happy Thanksgiving, FabFree-ers! I hope all of y’all who celebrate had a great day full of friends, family and fantastic food!

Warm Holidays

After a little nap to work off that turkey, I took to the Grid for a little hunting. Our Fall hunts are winding down but there’s still a few days to grab up al the awesome prizes out there. I re-visited the Warm Socks Hunt 2 today to pickup this cute casual knit dress from Vertigo. This is ‘Yosa’ and it can become a very versatile part of your wardrobe for FREE. Not only does it come a bunch of preset colors on the HUD but it also comes with a color picker. You can literally make this dress any color you want!

That’s how I got the dress to perfectly match my new ‘Fur Top Snow Boots’ from Duh! I grabbed these cute boots for FREE too with my Second Life Frees & Offers group tag. The gift comes with the pink ones here and a purple set as well.

Warm Holidays

Topping off my new look is one of two new Group Gifts from no.match. This is ‘no.country’ a nice long casual unisex style. It comes with both a men’s and a women’s version in the gift. Usually the group gifts have a special five color HUD but no.country comes as a full fat pack!

Warm Holidays

The Warm Socks Hunt 2 runs until November 30th so you have a couple of days left to get your Hunt on. However, the SLF&O items can come and come pretty quickly. So, if you need these boots hurry over to Duh! and grab them.

Happy Thanksgiving’s Eve!

whc noname blue hoodie 2_001

First, a word to any turkeys who might happen upon this post… RUN! With that out of the way, happy Wednesday everyone! We are to the end of the month and the holiday season is in full swing. I know at the Fab Free office party we will be giving thanks both in the traditional sense of the holiday and thanks to our readers who are always the reason we do what we do. It really matters that you choose to read us; and, I know we are all very proud that you do. Today’s post will be shorter than usual, since there are preparations to be made so tomorrow I can take my rightful place in the kitchen: tallest man at the kids’ table. Heaven knows how old I will be when I finally graduate to the adult’s table.

This week in my travels, I had a lucky chair win! I don’t often win on chairs but over at NoName luck was with me, and the letter “W” came up while I was shopping. The prize was this sharp-looking dark blue hoodie which comes with two variations in the box. The version of the Tyler Hoodie I chose for the picture has light blue trim and arms, but also in the box is a hoodie without the lighter tones. This is a great looking FREE hoodie either way! Each version comes in five sizes for a good fit. I am very happy with this find! The prizes in the two lucky chairs at NoName rotate. So, in order to get this particular prize, patience or a great deal of luck will be required. However, it is a very good store and whatever you score on the chairs will likely be a keeper.

whc noname blue hoodie 7ds 3_001

Although we will be doing a special Fab Free round-up of FREE skins December First, I couldn’t resist showing you this skin since it is a prize from a hunt that ends this month. This is the STORM skin in Taupe w/o hairbase from 7 Deadly s{K}ins and is offered FREE as a hunt prize in the Dirty Turkey Hunt! Pictured on the left, the gift includes this skin in two tones, each of which comes with and without hairbase variations. As always, with 7 Deadly s{K}ins this is excellent work, a very real-looking skin good enough for a picky old resident like me as well as being a must pick-up for new male residents who are looking to shed that freshly hatched look that none of us covet.

On the right side of the above picture I am wearing a tattoo layer in addition to this wonderful skin. Setting a new Fab Free record for least amount of notice given to people to pick up something nice…WHC Riler for telling you there is a fantastically useful Bitter Sweet Hunt prize over at L’Anguisette but the hunt ends tonight! The prize is a unisex set of four tattoo layers that apply realistic facial freckles to whatever skin you choose to wear. You might not use them now but things like this are great to keep around since they can combine with skins you might like in the future to give you just the right look you are searching for. For only 2L this hunt prize is a bargain and the hunt object you are looking for is shaped like a skull. With free skin day approaching this is a great pick up for your inventories in my opinion! Maybe with luck L’Anguisette, might forget to remove the hunt prize a few more days. I will cross my fingers and pop in my sad puppydog eyes when I talk to them.

That’s all for now, keep an eye out for the special skin posts coming up on the beginning of December. From our family at Fab Free to all of you, thank you for all the support and attention you give to us. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and I will see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

santalistGood morning fabulous friends! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, November 24.

Can you tell that Christmas is on the way? Our top three hunts today all have that theme, but there are still plenty of Thanksgiving hunts to go around too. So grab a cup of eggnog and/or a turkey leg and get hunting. There is plenty of holiday spirit to go around!

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!

Sweet Lies on the Throne

Sweet Lies on the Throne 1

“War was easier than daughters.” [Ned Stark – Game of Thrones]

Daffy’s GadgetMania has decided to participate in the Get To Know Us Hunt and is generously serving up three FREE glorious prizes… this throne called Gift 2-DS-666 Gothic/Gorean Throne being one of the three. It is fit for a king… or a Queen… or a man home from war with too many daughters who needs to relax a little. It has tons of poses built into the main seat and on the sides as well (on the pillows) and against the arms and the entire kit and kaboodle is only 13 prim. For a huge throne this detailed, that’s impressive! And less stressful for Ned Stark than war OR daughters!

Now, prewarning… these three hunt prizes by Daffy’s GadgetMania are FREE… but the hunt is not for the faint of heart. The store is adult themed in a bit of a horror type manner. The hunt itself is based on a series of clues within the store and is a set of steps before the prize reveals itself. If haunted houses or disturbing images are too much for you, this store’s hunt is not for you (I did the rest of the stores on this mini hunt and they were not gruesome, only this one). The prize is worth it, but I don’t want anyone to say “why didn’t you warn me about the blood?!” Well… aren’t many thrones won by a sword, spear, and blood? (At least in Game of Thrones, right?)

Sweet Lies on the Throne 2

“Life is not a song, Sweetling. You may learn that one day to your sorrow.” [Littlefinger to Sansa Stark – Game of Thrones]

You may not decide to sing a song in this lovely toga style dress called Lucrecia Green by Sweet Lies (which comes in the style shown or in a more risky adult style that shows much much more skin) but you’ll look daring and beautiful rather in song or in sorrow while wearing it — whether it be next to the throne or sitting on it.  Better yet, this fabulous get up comes with jewelry included (a necklace, armlets, and anklets) and is FREE by slapping the Midnight Mania board at Sweet Lies. The board requires group membership but that too is FREE, fear not and cry not!

The dress is mesh, comes in all the standard mesh sizes and is perfect for roleplay. The jewelry comes in both scripted and unscripted versions for re-sizing and the scripted versions have an option to remove the script once you are done to save on lag. It’s a sweet deal from Sweet Lies!

Sweet Lies on the Throne 3

“Freedom means making your own choices.” [Daenerys – Game of Thrones]

… and I choose to sit on the throne! At least briefly. And in this lovely little number called Etel by Sweet Lies, which is another FREE offering currently up on the Midnight Mania Boards. Again, you’ll need the group (FREE join) to slap the board, but this Mesh outfit in all the standard sizes with all its included accessories is worth the group space and the time to slap the board. Don’t miss out!

There are six total Midnight Mania boards up if neither of these outfits catch your fancy! Be sure to see if you like any of the others available! I managed to snag and close down 4, but am only showing 2 here. There is also one up for guys!

Sweet Lies on the Throne 4

“You could rattle the stars. You could do anything, if only you dared. And deep down you know it, too. That’s what scares you most.” [Elena – Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas.]

If you are looking for something more queenly, more stately, more fierce… I have just the look for you. In this attire any woman could rattle the stars.

Sweet Lies currently has a gorgeous array of 30L gachas available in-store. I found two that were simply my favorite and paired them together to get this look. The dress is called Tauriel and the detailing is amazing (can you believe this is one of the commons? Imagine the rares!) and for 30L a spin you are getting an amazing deal. These dresses are also fitmesh (swoons).

I paired the dress with a 30L spin on the Savage Spring Armor & Crown Gacha and was granted a Rusty Gold which was a perfect match for my look. For just 30L you get both the pauldrons AND the matching crown in the box (woot! woot!) and you don’t have to spin multiple times to try to match the two like with many gachas. So I simply adored this gacha and this outfit pairing! A deal for sure!


Rattle the stars or sit on the throne (or both!)…

Body – Maitreya Lara Mesh Body

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL The Peatonville AsylumGood morning Fabulous Friends! Here’s your Friday listing of hunts on the Second Life grid.

There are a bunch of great hunts going on right now, but one I still need to fit in before the end of the month is the Peatonville Asylum. If you’ve ever been on a MadPea hunt before you know that the macabre as well as attention to detail are their hallmarks. They are very much like interactive games. Finding things and solving riddles are all part of the fun.

If horror isn’t your cup of tea, you can find lots of other themes to choose from. Just check the list and poke the hunt names for more information on each one. There are lots of free (or nearly free) prizes out there waiting for you to find them.

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.



Wistfully Reflecting Upon My Salad Days…

Anims rising salad 1_001

Oh, my reckless SL youth! Those crazy days when I once wore a costume very much like this and danced on a pole at a club. It was a very odd time, but even back then I was very “Me”. In particular, I recall some rather dubious emoting capped with my all time favorite self observation. Shouting “Hey look, I’m a salad!” to the audience, my sexiness knew no bounds in those early days…

I am still having great fun unpacking prizes from The Spooky Nights Hunt, Presented By Firestorm. Animations Rising has put out an amazing FREE gift for the hunt, one too big for me to adequately describe. In fact, it took days for me to unpack it! It includes 55 male outfits from both the Rising Tribal and Rising Silks series and another 24 female ensembles. They seem to be pre-Mesh but they are bursting with extras and special effects particle sets, which could be especially useful when putting together your own costume and role-play outfits. The Rising Tribal – Gaius II – outfit is a tribute to the Greek Mother Goddess. The vines and leaves that wrap around the body are objects to wear rather than simply clothing layers. This means there is depth to them as opposed to looking inked or painted on. The dark green modesty pouch is very sexy but it does not conceal a great deal of you so carrying a large green houseplant or two might be useful to help keep covered up on sims that frown on something this revealing. This is outrageous clothing, so do me proud and if you wear it, try extra hard to make it memorable for everyone around you. My bet is that will be a task easily accomplished!

animations rising youth 2_001

The Youth is another FREE gift included in Animations Rising‘s Spooky Nights Hunt Prize. It is the epitome of simplicity, consisting of an excellent loincloth, a wrist band and a leg band. Inspired by and featuring indigenous influences, there are an additional 7 outfits from the Rising Tribal series included in this enormous prize. For the pic above, I appropriated the spear from the warrior costume. First of all, I needed a weapon to give me that menacing look. Secondly, I wanted to point to the big white feathers adorning it and shout “Biggest…chicken…ever!”

The picture above also features the face paint from Fallen Gods Inc. It is another excellent FREE hunt item from The Spooky Nights Hunt and comes in four color schemes: Toxic, Magic, Flames and Doom. I chose to wear Doom with The Youth because it is dark and ashy, giving me a more primal and menacing look. This is an excellent pick up because it is a perfect finishing touch for a costume. Whether you intend to go out clubbing or prefer to role play, it will probably be a useful addition to your wardrobe.

whc solar 5_001

This final pic is of a silk outfit called Rising Silks – Solar , yet another prize from the Animations Rising massive FREE Spooky Nights Hunt Gift. Quite a few sexy male silks are included and some of them, such as “Solar”, include amazing particle light shows which are customizable and can be turned off if you prefer. You have to love a creator who says “In short, Rising Silks are designed to be SEXY, and that means, to ride very low on the hips, and cover as little as possible, while still being elegant and masculine.” This is some seriously creative stuff, and in this gift you will find an incredible variety of useful items.

This concludes my weekly chance to try to get away with showing as much skin as possible. If you haven’t started hunting yet, The Spooky Nights Hunt, Presented By Firestorm is a wonderful way to begin. The hunt object you are looking for is a skull, and Animations Rising is store number 16 on the Wicked path. Fallen Gods Inc. is store number 1 on the Bones path. With the holiday season in progress now, this is the time to pick up some fantastic freebies hunting. Take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler
