Your Friday Hunt Report

SL13BIG HUNT 300Second Life often gets a little quieter in the summer months, but you’ll still find some fabulous hunts going on, and coming this weekend is Second Life’s annual birthday event: The SL13B Community Celebration (SL13B for short). You’ll find 17 regions with some of the most fantastic builds in SL. The fun all starts on Sunday, June 19th.

SL13B has a number of hunts, large and small. You’ll want to check out the SL13BIG HUNT which spans multiple regions at the event. My very own contribution is the SL13B Nano Hunt which includes 13 prizes. You’ll have to write and let me know how you like it.

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.

Dragon Lord

Greetings FabulouslyFree Friends,

Dragon Lord

Julianna had to twist my arm to get me to try some of these ‘role play’ outfits at first. And, frankly, some of what’s out there on the Grid is… well… less than elegant. However this one from Sparrow By Design is rather suave. This is “DragonLord” and it’s the free prize for the Silk Road Hunt. The coat and the pants are separate items but they share the same alpha layer. Each piece comes as one FitMesh item. I found the FitMesh to be extremely well made and fit very well indeed.

My … unorthodox head gear is from Aii: The Ugly and Beautiful. I protested but Julianna insisted that a dragon Lord needed horns.  At least these are very very impressive. The “Holy Devil” horns come in both gold and silver and are unrigged Mesh for ease of adjustment. You can find them as a free gift for the subscribers group near the front of the store.

Lastly, my prop and pose are from the retirement sale going on now until the end of the month at Exposeur. Sadly, the shop will be closing for good though the Marketplace should remain available. All items are on sale for some very deep discounts.

The Silk Road Hunt and the Exposeur closing sale both end on June 30th so don’t delay.

I remain most sincerely yours,

Gabe's Signiture

Silk

Heyya FabFree-ers!

Silk

I have been really looking forward to the seventh annual Silk Road Hunt and now that it’s on, I am not disappointed.  This is ‘Mandarin Splender’ from Thistle Moon Design and it’s one of three nifty prizes for the Hunt.  The top is on a system layer or the Omega applier while the separate skirt comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L.  I love the deep saturated colors and the attention to detail in the skirt.

The Silk Road Hunt has sixty eight stops and runs until June 30th. So don’t delay!

The Devil Inside

The Devil Inside

One of the things I like the most about Second Life is the ability to change your appearance at will. Today I was feeling a little bit more sinister, a little more goth than usual. Thankfully I’ve come across a few items that let me show off that darker side without breaking the bank. Now I get to share them with you!

It all started with this fun little “in store” hunt going on at FormaNails. I say “in store” but really, all the hunt objects are hidden outside on the grounds surrounding the store. Before I get into the hunt prize, I want to tell you a little about the hunt its self. I really enjoyed this one. Outside the FormaNails main shop you’ll see a small display where you can get a FREE hud. This hud needs to be worn with permissions granted to complete the hunt. There are 10 hidden objects to be found throughout the grounds. The hud I mentioned keeps track of which items you have found and which ones you’re still hunting for. Cool, huh?! The objects themselves will teleport to a new location once they’ve been “found”. So you may come across the same object a second time. Once the hud shows you’ve found all 10 objects, you return to the display outside the main store and click inside the phone booth. Then the folder with the hunt prize will be delivered to you. I have to say, what made this hunt so fun is that the grounds are really whimsical and interesting to explore. There are lots of imaginative things to do and see, I even bungee jumped while hunting!

The FormaNails FREE hunt gift is a set of bejeweled brass knuckles. The detailed set is unisex in that it includes a male and a female version, also both sets come in gold, and in silver. The female version is set with little rubies and pearls, while the male set has iron crosses and skulls. The knuckles are worn on one hand, and are able to be sized via touch menu. Though the knuckles did not appear to have been made to fit a specific set of hands, I was able to adjust them to suit my Maitreya Lara hands with some re-sizing and some manual re-positioning. After seeing the knuckles from FormaNails,  knew I wanted to do something a little bit goth and perhaps playful, then I saw one of the gifts from a shop called This is Wrong and knew exactly the look I was going for.

This lace neck corset by This is Wrong is really beautiful on. It comes in 3 colors for the boning, black, green, and red, each with black lace. This FREE gift fit my Maitreya Lara body without any adjustments, which was a pleasant finding. The group for This is Wrong is FREE to join as well, making this lovely gift absolutely FREE. Wear your group tag and purchase the item for zero lindens. There are also several other cute group gifts to be had at This is Wrong, don’t miss out!

Next, just the right the finishing touch! Stix is participating in The Sinister Goth’s “Sinner’s Hunt Gluttony”. This is a FREE hunt, and there are no groups or huds needed. The FREE hunt prize Stix has out is this hauntingly beautiful eye makeup set. The gift includes 5 variations of this wild smoky eye. Each version has an Omega applier, and a matching classic system layer. I tried on all 5 versions, and they are a must have for any goth girl, even if you’re only goth part of the time like me!

Here are the details, have fun, and Enjoy!

Island Hopping

Happy Monday, FabFree-ers!

Island Hopping

It’s always a good day, Monday or not, when I find an exciting new Sim to explore. And when that Sim is running a fun free little hunt with nifty prizes it really makes my day! I visited Noelia island today for their ‘Noelia Island Hunt’ and had a wonderful time. There aren’t hidden objects for this hunt, you go around the island ‘talking’ to people and animals who give you a gift and a notecard with the next clue. I had a lot of fun. Plus one of the Hunt gifts is this snazzy dress and hat from Prism. This is ‘Coco by Journey’ and you get the top and skirt as one piece plus the hat. Coco comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and has a good alpha layer. The hat is optional and can be moved/modified for the perfect fit.

The Hunt runs until June 30 but Noelia Island is a lovely place to get to know. I have a feeling I’ll be visiting often. Your Taxi to the start of the Hunt!

Entice at the Creations for Parkinson’s Research Event

Red White Blue

Hello There Fab Free! I have some special items to share with you today, that I’m sincerely excited about. Everyone knows I am a shopaholic, sales, gifts, and awesome deals are always exciting. However, when I can combine my love of bargain shopping with the ability to contribute to a noble cause, I am beyond excited!

Creations for Parkinson’s Research is having a Red White and Blue themed event where we can all do just that. Entice is one of several designers participating in this event with exclusive items and a hunt item that will donate 100% of their proceeds to Parkinson’s Research via the Michael J. Fox Foundation. Some items will also send 50% of their proceeds to Parkinson’s Research. Seriously, if that’s not Fabulous I don’t know what is! To go along with my Fantastic finds at the Creations for Parkinson’s event, I also picked up the FREE June group gift from Empire, which does not disappoint!

Going back to the Creations for Parkinson’s Research items from Entice, the red, white, and blue maxi dress pictured to the left is the event exclusive. This lovely summer dress is just 50 lindens and all of the proceeds from purchasing this dress will benefit Parkinson’s research. The dress comes in several mesh sizes, and includes alpha layers, there’s definitely something to fit just about any size and shape. I paired it with these chunky flats from REIGN and I think it’s adorable on! The second dress, also from Entice pictured in the center is the 10 linden hunt item. This fun little party dress also comes in several mesh sizes for easy fitting. The proceeds from this cute dress also go toward Parkinson’s research.

**Please note that the Creations for Parkinson’s Research Red, White, and Blue event ends June 6th.

With two new dresses in hand, the allure of FREE shoes at Empire was irresistible! The June group gift at Empire is this pair of delicate slide-on heels with full color change hud. These are super pretty, and just the right type of heel that can be worn with both casual and dressy attire. The Empire VIP group does have a one time join fee of 499 lindens, however you will have instant access to the current and past group gifts upon joining. Just don’t forget to wear the group tag! The group gift includes shoes fitted for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and TMP feet.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Mystic Colors

Hey again, FabFree-ers!

Mystic Colors

Do you feel time ticking away? I sure do! The Once Upon a Cure Hunt is almost over… only 24 ( or so ) hours to go. It’s all over June 4! But you still have time to go grab some great prizes and play some exclusive Gachas. Which is what I’m showing off today. My two friends are from Jinx’s ‘Mystic Unicorn’ Gacha just sneaking in at our cut off price of 75L per play. There are three common colors in both wearable and rezz-able versions. The wearables have one pose while the rezzed versions have six. As always, Jinx has made wonderful poses and really nifty unicorns for us.

My ‘mystic’ slip dress is another Hunt prize. This time it’s for the Colors of June Hunt. This is ‘Blossom’ from CuCu Clothes. Blossom comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-L and has a good alpha layer. This lovely slip dress will only set you back some hunting time and one little linden.

My new hair style is KoKoLoReS’ new June group gift – Sienna. As with the past group gifts, Sienna comes with the special ‘Rose Quartz’ HUD with thirty color combos to choose from. KoKoLoReS VIP group has a one time fee of 250L.

Now don’t delay, Fabulous Folks! The Once Upon a Cure fair and Hunt ends June 4th while the Colors of June runs until June 29th.

Sit Stay Good Dog

Sit Stay Good Dog“Summer Lovin’ had me a blast…” Does anyone else start singing that song from Grease when every they see “Summer Lovin'” written anywhere? lol Okay maybe it’s just me. Since it’s been a minute since my last post, I’ve filled this one with fun stuff from the Women Only Hunt, and one item from the Summer Lovin’ Hunt. Both hunts started June 1st, and there are so many cute things to hunt for, it was hard to pick what to show! Also you may have seen a few posts from some of my Fabulous teammates. I’ll link to their posts in the credits as well, just in case!

I’m going to start with this puppy and ice cream pose from Le Poppycock because it’s my favorite. I’m such a sucker for French bulldogs, and this little guy, or gal, is just irresistible. The pose shown in the top photo, the puppy, and the delicious looking ice cream cone are all included in the FREE Women Only Hunt gift at Le Poppycock. If your a photographer this pose set is especially great, because the puppy is meant to be worn. Wearing the puppy puts your avatar in the pose so you can use it without having to rez anything. The gift also comes with the pose, so you could rez the puppy and use the pose alone, allowing for a little more versatility.Sit Stay Good Dog 2Also part of the Women Only Hunt is this frilly little crop top from 1 Hundred. This is an applier top with appliers for almost everything you could imagine. There is a single hud that includes appliers for mesh breasts (Lolas, Lush, Mirage, Delicq,Omega), and mesh bodies (Wowmeh, Slink Physique, Belleza Venus, Maitreya Lara, Omega). Additionally this FREE WOH gift from 1 Hundred includes classic system layers for non mesh wearers.

This sinfully sweet full-body tattoo is another FREE WOH gift. Chemical Princess put this “Cupcake” tattoo out, and I just love it. The tattoo is filled with yummy looking candies, cupcakes, ice cream, and other sweets. This gift tattoo comes with an Omega applier, a Slink applier, and classic system layers. Tattoo lovers like me won’t want to miss out on this delicious tattoo!

Arise is also participating in the WOH and their gift is a beautiful set of “Sunny” eyes. These shining bright blue eyes are part of the FREE set from Arise. The gift includes a brown, grey, lime, purple, and sky pair of eyes along with the light blue ones shown. In the package you’ll get a set of mesh eyes for each color and a matching system eye layer. Sunny is definitely an appropriate name for these eyes, each of the colors are equally bright and vibrant.

Back to the Summer Lovin’ part of this post! Slipper put out these cute sandals as their Summer Lovin’ Hunt gift. The Summer Lovin’ Hunt is a dollarbie hunt, so these cute shoes are just 1 linden. The gift includes a Maitreya fit, a Slink fit, and a TMP fit. Also, Slipper is participating in the Women Only Hunt as well, so don’t forget to hunt down that gift while you’re there!
