Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Picnic In The ParkSo many hunts, so little time. I keep telling myself that I’ll get to all these hunts but they just keep slipping though my schedule. If only real life could just be put on hold! My partner and I recently finished the Puss & Boots Hunt. It was a fun hunt, though I haven’t even started opening the boxes yet.

Anyway, there are lots of hunts to partake of if you have the time. Good luck with that!

If you haven’t gone out on a hunt before, it’s time to get your feet wet. Hunts are a great way to pick up a lot of free (or very nearly free) stuff for your inventory. It’s not so difficult and there’s help to get started. FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages with useful tips and tricks.

So peruse these hunts and find the one that’s right for you. Just click the names for more information on each hunt.

See you out on the hunt!

Much ♥’s

Hello again, my Dear FabFree Folks! I have returned from the Highlands! I told you, y’all couldn’t get rid of me that easily.  So while shuffling through vacation snaps and doing loads of laundry I knew I had to make time to jump back in world and visit the We ♥ Role Play May event.

WLRP_001

This round of We ♥ Role Play, is the Second Anniversary of the shopping event and tons of the designers have set out free and almost free ‘Happy Birthday’ gifts. Plus, many designers have out special items for 10L or less. First up is the Reverie Ring from Empyrean Forge. The gold ring comes with a HUD to change the center stone with six colors to choose from.

Next up is the Tinuviel Crown from Evie’s Closet. I love the delicate leaves and pearls on this crown. The gift includes a matching collar with the same ethereal build.

Last but not least is another sweet little ring from Fawny. The Sweet Rose ring in gold is another delicate piece and I love the simple style.

If you like role play or fantasy items you can’t miss this event!       Your taxi to the event!

She’s Gone Batty

Batty1

Hello Fab Free’rs! Hopefully everyone had a good weekend and is now fully recovered from Monday! lol
I’m super excited about this little hunt I stumbled across the other day, it’s the Gone Batty Hunt. The fact that I’m fairly certain I went “batty” a long time ago aside, I also happen to adore bats! I have no idea why, I don’t have a cute story to explain it, or any other reason that I am aware of. I just love them! So if you’re like me and either really like bats, or have an affinity for the kawaii and creepy, this dollarbie hunt is just the thing for you. Also, I got in on the tail end of this hunt, it ends May 22, so don’t wait!

The Gone Batty Hunt is a sim-based hunt taking place at the “Spooky Cute” event location. The stores participating in the hunt will have a sign about the hunt either right outside their store, or visible just inside. Not all the stores are participating. Each hunt prize is 1 linden. You’ll be looking for a glowing purple disc with a black bat in the center. Happy Hunting!!

So first, I think this kinda retro looking dress with the cute tie at the neck is so adorable! It is the GBH prize by KRAVE. The dress is fully mesh and comes in standard mesh sizing. The adorable mouth-chain Pru is wearing is also a dollarbie GBH prize, this one by ClarityMoon. I love the cute little bat paired with a dark moon and stars. Next, is this fun mani/pedi from Tori-tastic. I really like this color combo with a bat motif, it’s hard to do bats and not look like Halloween. This “bat-tastic” polish is meant for Slink nails.

Batty 2

There is another super cute dress to be had on the GBH, this one is by Black Moon. I really like the style of this dress with the suspender style straps over a t-shirt-like top. I especially like the classic  bats flying across the moon imagery. This dress is also just 1 linden and comes in standard mesh sizes. I think these bat friends might be the very definition of “creepy cute”! They are the GBH prize by Mumuhime Clothing. These cute bats are attachments, and some have a hold pose. They are also pretty cute just kinda standing around.

Batty 3

So I’m considering making this cute over-sized sweatshirt my go-to shirt for those jeans and sneakers kind of days! This cute shirt is the GBH prize by Facepalm. It also comes in standard mesh sizes, though it’s mean to look big, and it has a matching alpha layer. The super fun hat Pru has on is yet another GBH prize, and it too is just 1 linden. This hat by Gachapon! has re-size scripts, and includes a color-change hud. Now hurry on over to the Spooky Cute location and Happy Hunting!

Here are the details, Enjoy!!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Sign Rock & Cute Brii HuntGood morning fabulous friends! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, May 19.

The latest store hunt at Brii is topping the chart this week. It’s the Rock & Cute Hunt. Sorry guys, Brii is just for the gals, but it’s usually some pretty great stuff. It’s a L$1 hunt by the way.

For the guys, there’s Just For Him, a fair and sim hunt that just started yesterday. I haven’t checked it out yet, but I plan to.

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!

Free Dove Hunt – Part 2

Free Dove Hunt 2

I can’t believe this long week is almost coming to an end! Haha Thankfully the May Mini Hunt at Free Dove  lasts all month, so no reason to miss out on these great hunt prizes. This second post about the Free Dove  hunt includes a few more fantastic items that I just had to show you. There are several more hunt items that I haven’t shown, but I do believe half the fun of a hunt is discovering the gifts.

Just in case you missed it, here’s a link to Part 1.

I mentioned before how cute this dress is when I showed it in another pattern in my first Free Dove  hunt post, and I still find it absolutely adorable. I love the dainty little flowers on this version. This mesh dress is a FREE hunt prize by Fission. Also by Fission are these sort of fractal patterned leggings. I could see wearing these mesh pants with a cute solid colored tank or a big comfy sweater. Again these are a FREE hunt prize at Free Dove. Next, you may remember that chunky ring by Masoom shown in my first Free Dove hunt post, well these equally chunky and equally fun bangles are another FREE hunt prize. These bright bangles kinda remind me of the 80s when neon was so very in, which makes them even cooler ’cause they’re “retro”! Last, I think these black and blue plaid pumps are my absolute favorite of the Free Dove hunt prizes. They are also by Fission, and are meant to be worn with Slink High feet. I think they have a great vintage look, and are just darling on!

Here are the details, Happy Hunting!!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Fi_s_Hunts_-_Gingham_Hunt_-_POSTER_IMAGEGood morning Fabulous Friends! There is a pretty darn good lineup of hunts going on right now, but some of them end TODAY. I’ve marked these for you just in case you want to get in on them at the last minute.

You should be able to find a hunt theme to enjoy. We have cats, whimsy, camping, the 50’s, antiques, and more as the currently running hunt themes. I’ve personally got the Gingham Hunt on my list of things to do, but gearing up for the SL12B Community Celebration (Second Life’s 12th birthday) is taking up a lot of my time. I’ll tell you more about that in a later article. I’m pretty excited about it.

If you haven’t gone out on a hunt before, what are you waiting for? Hunts are a great way to pick up a lot of free (or very nearly free) stuff for your inventory. It’s not so difficult and there’s help to get started. FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages with useful tips and tricks.

So take a look at these hunts and find the one that’s right for you. Just prod the names for more information on each hunt.

See you out on the hunt!

Free Dove Hunt – Part 1

Free Dove May 2

Hi there Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about you, but I’ve had a long week already and I’m in some major need of retail therapy! Luckily there is a great hunt going on at Free Dove for the month of May. This means I get my retail therapy for FREE! When I first started the hunt, I really had no idea just how big the hunt really was. There is a lot of cool stuff to be had, everything from shoes to jewelry.

To start, pictured in the top left photo is this super fun party dress. This mesh dress is one of the FREE hunt gifts from Fission. I love the sequined skirt! The dress comes in standard mesh sizes with matching alpha layers. Next, in the center photo, the mask and the ring are both gifts at Free Dove from Masoom. The sheer lace mask is mesh and has the ability to be re-sized, and has a ribbon tie that goes around your head. I like the almost art deco look to this chunky ring. The ring is actually part of a complete outfit you can find while hunting, but it was so cute I couldn’t resist showing it right away! To the right in the photo is a pretty cocktail dress, also by Fission. Like all the gifts in this hunt, this is also FREE. The dress comes with standard sizes and alphas. I think it would be great for entertaining guests.

Free Dove May 1

Now for a few of the more casual items in the Free Dove hunt. I think this light blue day dress is very sweet. The buttons on the chest make the dress, I also really like the little cap-sleeves. This is a FREE hunt gift from Fission and it comes with standard sizes. The top pictured in the center is also by Fission. I was really happy to see something in one of my favorite shades of green. As with the other Free Dove hunt gifts by Fission, this one is fully mesh with standard sizes. I think the dress in the photo to the right is really feminine and pretty. It too is by Fission, and of course is fully mesh. In the country we’d wear this little dress with some cute boots and a bolero style jean-jacket!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my review of the Free Dove Hunt so far! There will be more to come, so stay tuned!
