Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Surf Into Summer HuntThere are some good hunts going on right now, which begs the question… why aren’t you out hunting!? LOL.

Are you into fantasy? There are some nice fantasy hunts happening. Check out the Enchanted Fairy Tale Hunt, the Mystery Fantasy Hunt, and Nightmares & Fairy Tales if you like that sort of thing.

As usual, there are some great things to be picked up at The Free Dove. There are three different free store hunts running there from various designers. Check them out!

There are plenty of other hunts to choose from. Do them all and your inventory will be bulging. But most importantly… have fun.

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.

Seas the day

Hello FabFree-ers!

Seas the day

I’ve resisted disappearing to the beach for weeks now… but I can’t hold out any longer! Especially not when the Surf into Summer Hunt has such great items tempting me.  Precast Inc has supplied my stripy towel for the Hunt and it comes loaded with four animated poses. The details on the fabric are really well done and the poses are sexy without being overdone, if you know what I mean.   I’m leaving the smexy to this cute bikini from Perfect Seduction. The Sis Bikini comes in the standard mesh sizes from S-XL and has a good alpha layer. I just love the sassy fringe on the bandeau top!

The 1L Surf into Summer Hunt runs until June 21 so you’ve got plenty of time to lounge around in the sand!

The Runway Perfect Hunt ends May 31st, so there is still some time for hunters to make some last minute stops before this hunt is over. If you stop by Prism Designs, they are offering two gifts for this 5L Hunt — one for the ladies and one for the gents. In the picture above I’m showing you the men’s gift… the Oki Jacket and Oki Shorts.

This outfit will only cost you 5L and a little hunting time, and you’ll get all the standard mesh sizes. It’s worth adding to your wardrobe for casual wear.

Enchanted in the Afternoon

In the Afternoon

There are a few days left of Enchantment, so I wanted to take a moment to show you just a few more of the fantastic FREE gifts to be had as part of the Enchantment Hunt. Plus, I’ve really had a good time dressing up in all the pretty things! As I mentioned in my previous post this is a hud hunt, and all the gifts are FREE, just wear the hud.

First, if you’ve been reading the Fab Free blog for a while, you’ve probably learned of my love for lingerie! It’s so pretty!! Needless to say I was delighted to find this beautiful deep blue set from Chocolate Atelier as an Enchantment Hunt gift. This FREE lingerie set is gorgeous on, not to mention the blue color is everything. Included with the set are appliers for Lolas Tango, Belleza, Slink Physique, Maitreya, TMP, and Omega, as well as classic system layers.
Close Ups Next I added these pretty little daisy earrings from Bliensen + MaiTai. They are so cute, I’ve been wearing them all day! They are yet another FREE Enchantment Hunt gift. This gift includes a color change hud with seven color options to help match them with just about any outfit.

As a final touch, these lovely lipsticks are from Lumae. The FREE Enchantment Hunt prize from Lumae includes Lelutka, Omega, and TMP appliers, as well as classic makeup layers in 12 pretty colors. The colors range from pinks and reds to nudes. This is one of those must have makeup items, you’ll want to add to your collection!

An Enchanting Blue Fairy

The Blue Fairy

Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope all is well in your world. Right now my world is made up of fantastic fairy fabulousness thanks to the Enchantment Hunt. The May round of Enchantment is Thumbelina themed, and the shops participating in the Hunt part of the event are making all my fairy dreams come true! Even better, the Hunt gifts are all absolutely FREE. Additionally, Plastik recently sent out this gorgeous fantasy skin with male and female options and all the appliers for all the meshy things you could possibly imagine (okay most of them) as a FREE gift to their VIP group. You’re gonna want this one! Also, at the very end of the post I have a little something from Catwa that I want to tell you about. I bet you can guess what it is!

First, if you’ve never done an Enchantment Hunt before, this is a hud hunt. You can pick up a FREE hud at the Enchantment Event or at any of the participating shops. Once you attach the hud you’ll be asked to give it permission to teleport your avatar. Say yes! Then click on a shop logo to be instantly teleported to that location. You’ll also get a hunt hint in your local chat. You must be wearing the hud when you find the hunt object (an open book) and click it. The Enchantment Hunt object will not send you the gift without the Enchantment Hunt hud attached.Blue Fairy Close Since there are so many lovely Enchantment Hunt Freebies, I’ll start from the top. This crown of dainty, highly detailed hair flowers from NSP Florals is simply beautiful. This FREE hunt gift is sizable and can be easily positioned. Not to mention that hair flowers are an essential part of a fairy’s wardrobe, so you won’t want to miss these!

No fairy would be complete without a set of pretty gossamer wings! These delicate wings are the FREE Enchantment Hunt prize at Le Poppycock. The wings are static, and include several color versions, each in an open or closed position.

Next, this lace one-piece lingerie is the FREE Enchantment Hunt Prize at Blacklace. Blacklace is known for their beautiful lingerie, and this gift is no exception. Not only is this gift beautiful, it generously includes appliers for omega compatible bodies as well as classic system layers in several equally pretty colors.

The next to last stop on the Enchantment Hunt for this post is Essenz. These mint colored strappy flats are just too cute! These are easily the perfect fair footwear. This FREE hunt prize includes a Maitreya fit, and a Slink Flat fit. All fairy-ness aside, these sandals are a great addition to any summer wardrobe.

Finally, how cute is the pose used in the top photo? I love the whimsical look of the stance. This is one of 3 poses that are the Enchantment Hunt prize at Elephante Poses. Each of the 3 static poses have the same whimsical fairy quality to them. You’ll definitely want to add these FREE poses to your collection!

Now that I have shared a small sample of the Enchantment Hunt gifts to be had (I’ll show more in my next post), I want to talk about this incredible skin. Just recently Plastik gained 1000 Facebook likes/followers and to show her appreciation, the designer sent out this skin to her VIP group. This FREE gift comes in a male and female version and includes classic system layers along with appliers for every mesh body part you might imagine. I love the added detail of the almost iridescent looking stripes. They really give this skin an otherworldly look. In addition to the applier options, you also have the choice of freckles or no freckles.  At this time The Plastik group is FREE to join, and you’ll find this awesomely generous gift in the past group notices.

Lastly, I know this has been an unusually long post for me, but I have one more thing I want to share with you. Catwa has just released a static mesh head called Nicki, and it is for sale now for just 100 lindens. Yes, this is above and beyond the 75 lindens we usually stick to, however if you’re a Catwa group member you will get 30 lindens in store credit for purchasing the head. This brings that 100 linden cost to just 70 lindens in a round about way. Aside from being static (no blinking, no facial expressions) this pretty face has all the same functions as any other Catwa mesh head. Currently the Catwa group is FREE to join, so don’t forget to join the group and wear your group tag to get the store credit when purchasing the Nicki head.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

Trade Wind

Trade Wind

I found a set of his and hers gifts that are really just stunning. They remind me of early morning sunrises, warm beaches, love letters and all the good things in life. I know that definitions of happiness are different for everyone, but a great find of excellent clothes is surely a win either way:)

In the picture above, I’m showing you the Runway Perfect Hunt gifts from Miss Darcy’s. A little bit of hunting time at the main-store for the black and white prim, and just 5 little linden, will score you this beautiful his and hers set.

The lady’s dress includes the skirt and top (they are separate pieces) in all the standard mesh sizes. I love the details of the bow on the skirt, and the tied waist top. Alphas are included for standard avatars.

The men’s gift includes the matching pants and jacket in all the standard mesh sizes, as well as an optional system Tee shirt to wear under the jacket if desired.

The gifts come in one box, so no need for hunting down two separate hunt prims.

Fairy Tale

Happy Weekend, FabFree-ers!

Fairy Tale

If you are in the mood for some roleplaying this weekend here in Second Life, I may have found your new go-to costume. This is “Queen of Hearts” from MoonliteCat Creations and it’s the 1L prize for the Nightmares and Fairy Tales Hunt.  The top, with the attached arm bracers and collar, and the skirt are separate pieces and both come in the standard Mesh sizes – XS-XL. There are three alpha layers included: one for the top, one for the skirt and one for both pieces. I just love it when designers make a multi – piece outfit so darn versatile!

Last Exit to the Weekend

Last Exit to the Weekend

This morning was chilly and it made me think that spring was having her last fling before summer. And of course today is Friday… that last exit before the weekend. I have a few special treats to get you through the day until Saturday blooms, though:)

If you’ve not yet started the Runway Perfect Hunt, you should consider picking up this dress by Loordes of London. I really like the unique style of this one piece mesh cover up (which has the look and feel of layers). It’s long enough to be a dress, but short enough to be a shirt. You could easily pair it with your favorite jeans or capris. It will only cost you 5L and a little hunting time for the black and white prim. It comes in all the standard sizes, as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, and Physique.

Last Exit to the Weekend

Chop Zuey has out a new group gift called Harlow Creed… a texture change ring. I have always really loved cameos, but this one also appealed to my sense of Gothic flair. So I nabbed it up to show off to you as well. It offers 3 metal choices and several color choices for the cameo part. The group is 350L to join, but you’ll be getting regular gifts to offset this fee, making it well worth your fee.

Last Exit to the Weekend

And since it *is* Friday, I decided to scout out the Fifty Linden Friday deals… and discovered that Livalle was offering a set of maryjanes that I really fell in love with. Previously this pair of shoes was offered in the color mint as a gift (Calleja showed them to you Here). If you missed out on that great offer, you can pick up a four pack of the shoes today. You’ll get cherry, navy, pink, and white in the box for your 50L. These shoes fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.

Wickedly Floral

Snapshot_008
If you love lingerie in SL, you should make a quick trip to Wicked and have a look around the shop for the hidden May Flowers Hunt Icon.

I hunted for the hidden flowers, which were super easy to find, paid it 1 little linden and was sent the wicked sweet floral Valerie Negligee you see me wearing in my photo today.  Valerie is compatible with Slink, Belleza and Maitreya mesh bodies and standard mesh sizing is included too.  The panties are not included, but I am sure you can dig up a pair of cute ones to match in your inventory easy enough.  I went with the mesh Lara Panties that came free with my Lara Mesh Body when I purchased it.  The darker pink colour is a spot on match to the lace trim.

As an alternative, this would make a super summer  blouse as well! I bet it’s adorable with a pair of denim shorts.
