Hello there to all you Fabulously Free readers! I’m Sheidey (but please just call me Edi) and I enjoy mulling over hunt hints, slapping midnight mania boards and long walks on the beach especially if they lead to a Kraken-themed unlucky dip. Truth be told, I hemmed and hawed a little over what to feature on my first post of this wonderful blog. Wings? No. Dress and boots combination? Maybe for later. Broken unicycle? Wait. How did that get into my inventory?

Mysteries aside, I finally settled on the hunt that’s running concurrently with the Fluffy and Fierce event. If the ‘cute with an edge’ look is right up your alley then hop on down to the event and pick up the hunt hint notecards from some of the participating merchants. The hunt item is hidden in their respective main stores so while you’re hunting you can get distracted by all sorts of lucky letters, group gifts, weasels, etc etc…It’s so much fun!

The outfit pictured is the Bring It On batwing set from Blasphemic that comes in five mesh sweater sizes and system layer ripped leggings with an Omega applier as well as appliers specific to popular mesh bodies. It also includes a studded belt that comes with a resizer hud. I love the laid back look and feel of the outfit and paired it up with a pair of boots that I got off the Midnight Mania board at Psychotic Neko. I do believe that it’s the first set of boots in my Second Life closet to have claws. Definitely made for walking.

To tie the whole look together, I’m wearing the Cella hair from Damselfly that you can get for free at the Crossroads event and the new group gift from WoW Skins called Angy. The simple hairstyle and fresh-faced skin just adds to the casual factor of the whole outfit. It was a lot of fun putting this look together and I hope you had fun reading my first post just as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Make it Quick

Make it Quick Hello again Fab Free’rs I’m back for a quick post about the Fall Tears Hunt item at Sevyn East. I picked up this super cute 1 linden hunt prize the other day while I was also picking up the Sevyn East group gift I blogged here. I thought this skirt with the suspenders and the sleeveless top was too cute to not share it. It is plain but the subtle difference in the textures of each part are what make the solid black outfit work. This pretty mesh dollarbie includes the outfit in standard mesh sizes only. The hint to help you find this FTH prize is “I can be a little nosy.” Don’t wait, this hunt ends September 30th!

Happy Hunting Fab Free! Here are the details.

Sweet Memories

Snapshot_005
With all of the excitement going on this weekened with the Designer 2.0 program launch and the opening of the new Fabulously Free in SL Info Hub, I wasn’t sure if I would be able to sneak a post in, but I am glad I found a little bit of time to share this bit of news!

My Caboodle Shaleen Dress in the blue floral print (available in mesh XXS-L sizes) can be found as a free Getsuga Sim Hunt prize along with the ATTIC Elfman Vintage Camera shown.  There are a few different stores  participating and I believe there are 12 prizes in total, but you can find this information along with an example of the hunt icon at the landing point at the Getsuga Sim! All prizes are free and this hunt will run until the 16th of September.

Another thing I wanted to mention is the Glam Affair Skin Applier called Viktoria that I am wearing today on my Catwa Helena Mesh Head.  I picked this beautiful applier up in an asia skin tone (normally lighter than I usually wear, but I really like it!) on Friday for 50L as a Fifty Linden Friday offer and I just checked before publishing this post (Sunday night) to make sure it is still there for anyone who may still be interested.  This is a time sensitive offer and may not be available.

It’s Fear The Walking Dead night – Gotta run!

Wild Pink Butterfly

Butterflies Hello Fab Free’rs! For once I’ve had a fairly quiet day in RL and I’m glad. It’s about time! I hope you’re all doing well. Today I have a few group gifts, one from Hucci (technically a subscriber gift), and one from The Skinnery. Also, Indulge Temptation is celebrating 2 years with two ways score a beautiful celebratory gift.

The subscriber gift a Hucci is this lovely magenta colored mesh sleeveless top. The shirt comes in body-specific mesh sizes for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique and Hourglass, as well as Belleza Isis, Freya, and Venus. As you can see this low cut “WildPink” is meant to be sexy yet casual, I think it could also be worn over an applier top if you wanted a little more coverage. To get this FREE subscriber gift at Hucci simply join the Subscriber, if the gift isn’t sent to you, use the message history to have the gift delivered.
Butterfly To go with the top from Hucci, I also picked up this pretty raspberry colored lip stain from The Skinnery. This Catwa lip applier is a FREE group gift at The Skinnery. It comes in a set of 4 stains. Each color has a normal version and smudgy version that makes it look as though you’ve messed up your lip-color with a little kissing! The Skinnery group has a one time join fee of 200 lindens. Once you’ve got your group tag, simply click the gift vendor and your lip stain set will be delivered. There are also several past group gifts still available.

The bold beautiful butterfly jewelry shown in the photos is a fun hunt prize or group gift from Indulge Temptation. This specific set along with several color change huds are the way Indulge Temptation is celebrating their 2 year Anniversary! There are 2 ways you can get this gorgeous set of statement jewelry. If you don’t want to join the in world group, you can hunt each piece at the main store. Each hidden part of the set is 10 lindens and there are 12 total pieces, most of which are the color change huds that allow you to adjust the color of the jewels as well as the metal parts. You can also resize these pieces of jewelry for the best fit. Not up for a hunt? No problem. Indulge Temptation group members can pick the full set up for FREE as a group gift.  The in world group has a one time join fee of 100 lindens, and there are previous group gifts available as well. You’ll find this and the other gifts in a room to the left of the landing point.

Cardigan Weather

Cardigan Weather

It will be cardigan weather soon, and the Harvest Hunt is proving lucrative if you want to fill your inventory with fall ready clothes. I picked up this excellent outfit for just 1L and a little hunting time at Purple Passions Designs. It includes the Cardigan, Mens V Neck Slim Top, and Mens Casual Chino Pants all in one box. Each piece is separate for individual wear and each has it’s own alpha. There was also a pair of dress shoes and a fedora in the gift (not shown in the picture above) that were quite nice as well.

For 1L this gift is well worth hunting down. The textures are spot on and it is mesh in all the standard sizes to accommodate a perfect fit.

It’s a Secret is quickly becoming one of my go to designers on these hunts and it hasn’t disappointed me this time. This is the Pea Coat set and it’s the 1L prize for the ‘Stuff and Things’ Hunt. This generous prize includes the tailored pea coat, the shirt, the scarf and the jeans. Each piece, excluding the shirt, can be worn and sized separately. The standard mesh sizes XS-XL are included in the prize.  It’s a nice coming into Fall look for a little searching and one small linden.

Blue Twist

Blue Twist

Out of the blue… I decided to get a little twisted… and put together a quick outfit to share with all of you.

The Twisted Hunt is on, and while this hunt is a tough one, the hunt gifts are well worth the finding. My amazing Rune in Blue mesh shirt (it comes in all the standard sizes) is the Twisted Hunt gift that is yours FREE when you hunt it down at Roped Passion’s main-store. There is also a nice ladies gift, two side gifts, and you can get the shirt in grey for only 25L if you so desire. A pretty fantastic deal, if I don’t say so myself.

I was also checking out the Fall Tears Hunt and when I started unpacking my boxes, was pleased to discover a pair of classically styled blue pants that worked perfect with my blue shirt from Roped Passion’s.

Stop by Horr Menswear and do a bit of hunting for the Fall Tears Hunt and this pair of blue slacks in all the standard sizes is yours for 1L and your hunting time. The cut is superb and they have a nice detailing of seams and pockets on the back rear end. These paired nicely with my shirt, but would go well with just about anything from dressing up to casual shirts as well.

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”.  I was able to find this men’s denim jacket with attached hoodie and shirt 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

Fine Filly

Heyya FabFree-ers!

Fine Filly

You only have today and tomorrow left to hunt down the great prizes on the Women’s Stuff Hunt ! As I was running around like crazy picking up little red teeshirts and I found this wonderful casual set from Artic Storm. This is the ‘Filly’ crop top and jeans and it’s the free prize at the main Artic Storm location at the Wash. Filly comes in FitMesh sizes XS-XL and has separate alpha layers for both top and bottom. There are also appliers for Maitreya, Belleza and SLink mesh bodies. I really love the embroidery details on the top and the jeans look great. Just remember, the Women’s Stuff Hunt ends on the 31st so hurry hurry!
