Your Friday Hunt Report

newKTMHhuntadGreetings once again Fabulous Friends! If you love romance, then February is the month for you. There are all sorts of Valentine themed hunts to participate in. Love is in the air!

There are quite a few grid wide hunts devoted to Valentine’s Day, and sim and store hunts devoted to hearts are cropping up every day. So have a look at the list. I’m sure you can find a hunt that will get you all “twitterpated.”

If you’re 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.

Southern Sophistication

Southern Sophistication

Hello Fab Free! Thanks for stopping by our Fabulous blog today. It seems like already there are so many hunts, events, and gifts to be had for the month of February, it’s so exciting! I was able to put together most of this look using group gifts from MoDanna and ECCO, a hunt prize from More Than Ever, and a wearable demo from Alaskametro. I love this look because it reminds me of some of the style you would see in the Southern U.S. where I am from.

Starting from top to bottom, I picked up this sort of matte red lipstick from Alaskametro on the Marketplace. I thought it matched the red of the boots perfectly. The lipstick applier is a FREE wearable demo from Alaskametro showing the “Fiery” shade in their “Creme Red” lipstick collection. This FREE wearable demo includes a system layer, a Loud Mouth applier, an Omega applier, a Lelutka applier, and a Slink Visage applier.

Next I picked up this almost bolero style necklace for FREE at ECCO with my ECCO group tag. This pretty necklace with heart and bead dangles is the February group gift at ECCO. It includes a color change hud to allow you to customize the color of the cords, beads, metal, and gems of the necklace for high versatility. The ECCO group does have a one time join fee of 200 lindens, however you will not only be able to get the February group gift, but you’ll have instant access to several previous group gifts upon joining the ECCO group.

This sophisticated looking sleek black dress is another group gift, this one from MoDanna. All MoDanna group members can pick up this group gift for 1 linden while wearing their group tag. In addition to purchasing the dress, your 1 linden is converted into 1 linden store credit! The MoDanna group is free to join, and there is usually a group gift each month, not to mention group members earn store credit for their purchases.

Finally, these gorgeous boots! I love the tooled red leather look of these red boots from More Than Ever. The boots are the Walk a Mile in My Shoes Hunt prize from More Than Ever. This hunt is a 10 linden hunt, so you can score these amazing mesh boots for just 10 lindens, all you need to do is find them! You’ll be looking for a black and red shoe hidden in the More Than Ever shop.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Purple Tiger

Purple Tiger

Even in real life, one of my favorite colors to wear is purple! So when I saw the FREE gift dress that Entice was offering for SL frees & offers group members (the group is FREE to join), I was really excited! This dangerously sexy Delilah dress in Purple Tiger is available right now if you hop over to Entice to pick it up! It includes the dress in all the standard mesh sizes as well as system layer stockings.

Back in October, Entice held a hunt at Free Dove, where our amazing Pru showed us the orange version of this dress HERE. If you missed picking it up in orange, or want to own it in purple, now is your chance!

Just below the gift board, Entice is offering the matching Delilah purple ankle boots for only 85L (they are on sale for a limited time). That’s a touch over the usual 75L limit, but I wanted to let you in on the secret!

I also found the matching Delilah Cuffs on the Marketplace in a full fatpack for only 75L. That’s 10 great colors! I wore the purple to match the dress, but for the little sum of 75L, you are getting a great deal on a great accessory!

Snakes and Dragons

Dragons and Snakes 1

There are some great hunts going on at the moment and I had to satisfy my inner hunter again… once more at OMG! Inc. This time, I snatched up the Hunt for Your Inner Slut Hunt gift… which is this totally FREE sexy dress called Slither Snakeskin. I’m wearing it in red in the picture above, but what I really love is that the dress comes with a color change hud with 8 color choices! It’s mesh in all the standard sizes, so you are sure to find your fit, as well.

You have until February 15th to grab up this sensual number, so don’t stress if you want to finish out a few of the ending January hunts first :)

For more information on this hunt, click HERE.

I wanted a great set of heels to go with my new dress, and the Black and White Hunt did not disappoint! However it IS one of those hunts that is coming to a rapid close… and ends on January 31. You’ll need to hurry if you want to snag a set of my heels by Lindy’s Designs in the pictures above. These are FREE for the Black and White Hunt and are on the Black Path and are made for slink high feet.

For more information on this hunt, click HERE.

I rounded out my look with a necklace from Chop Zuey. One of the latest group gifts is this fantastic Dragon Flight necklace, which you can get FREE by wearing your group tag. The group is 350 to join, but the gifts are always plentiful! So you’ll have your money’s worth in no time! To note: this necklace is a men’s piece, however I was easily able to resize it to fit my female shape… and I think it works great as unisex jewelry!

Menstuff Ahoy!

whc LKD pirate 1 a

whc LKD pirate1 b

Ahoy Matees! ARGGH…cough, cough, cough. Okay, That’s about the extent of my pirate role-play. It’s the “Argghs” that kill me. It’s hard to sound sexy when you start coughing and flailing your arms wildly in international amateur sign language for “I am ok, don’t call an ambulance”. That can kind of take the sexy out of things.

Luckily, the clothes can bring the sexy back and that’s what I like most about the outfit I’m wearing from Lo Kajirus Designs. The “Like A Pirate Mesh Slave Outfit” Menstuff Hunt gift comes role-play ready for daring adventurers, club hoppers and cabin boys across the grid. It is a highly unique outfit and consists of Mesh pantaloons, jewelry, Mesh eye-patches, a collar (both scripted and non-scripted) and a colorful belt sash. The pantaloons come in five sizes for a good fit, and the accessories are fun and quite attractive. Overall, the quality of the outfit is impressive and for only 1L, it’s a bargain. It doesn’t matter if your pirate vessel is a schooner or a shopping cart, it’s the clothes that make the man O’war! Aye, prepare to be boarded!

Seven Deadly s{K}ins is offering the Menstuff Hunt Bowie Skin in both taupe and walnut tones with and without hairbases as their free hunt prize. Heavily freckled and with super realistic facial hair, they are considerably handsome skins. I was quite impressed with the quality as well as the fact that 7DS also includes appliers if you are lucky enough to have slink hands and feet. The Bowie skin is definitely an excellent pick up for those of us looking for an quality skin upgrade for free!

whc piratecart FE Style 2_001

As I sailed through the calm seas of the Menstuff Hunt, I encountered this wonderful Jacket and Shirt Combo from FE Style. The Wekleh Jacket w/T-Shirt is a one piece mesh evocative of maritime clothes in an entirely different way. The simple, understated styling gives a classic masculine look for any male avi. Offered in four sizes, one of which is Fitmesh, a fine fit without any fuss will be easy to accomplish. Perfect for the dock or the deck, this 1L hunt prize is certainly a first-class item to grab.

The Menstuff Hunt is a 1L hunt but only 31 stores elected to charge for their gifts. The hunt object you are looking for is a blue T-Shirt and can be small, so follow any hints that have been posted on the Menstuff Hunt page. You will not find a better run Men’s hunt on Second Life. So ends this chapter in my Menstuff voyage for now, take care everyone and a quick reminder that Valentine’s Day approaches. Enjoy SL and I will see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Boots and Feathers

Boots and Feathers 1

I’ll admit… a good pair of boots gets me going. And a good pair of FREE boots is even better! So when I found out that Belle Epoque was starting out their new main-store location with a gift of FREE boots (in three colors – brown, black, and grey)… I was in! The style is spot on for a country or boho look and they don’t require any special feet! Woo hoo! You’ll need to join the group to grab the gift, but that is FREE too! As a quick note, the boots are mesh and like many mesh items don’t resize. So depending upon your avatar’s shape and/or size, you may have to adjust your sliders to fit the boots.

——————————————-
ADDED NOTE: We first saw this fabulous pair of boots shown off by Juli HERE in our Shoe Day Showcase! I derped and missed it! Be sure to check out her post for some other amazing shoe deals you’ll want to get in on!
——————————————-

I decided to go “Boho” with the boots and popped onto the marketplace, where I found this oldie but goodie dress for 1L. This Boho Culture Preview Dress is from 2013 and though it has a tiny bit of logo print at the bottom left of the dress… the print blends in so nicely (as you can see in the picture above) that it’s hardly noticeable. The dress is wonderful and definitely worth 1L! I’d have paid far more!

Boots and Feathers 2

I wanted to give you a close up of my boots (see the picture above). But it also gave me a chance to show off my rope and feathers accessory that I found! And I think the head piece and necklace — a mere 10L on the marketplace to get you both pieces — are a perfect complement to this look! This Head and Necklace Ropes by Sweet Lies comes in both scripted or unscripted (for resize purposes) and is perfectly textured. I LOVE the feathers! Well worth 10L and then some!

Be Incredible

Work Hard Do Good

Hello Fab Free! I’ve had a busy few days but I’m back and I’m excited to share some great group gifts I stumbled across today. I love it when you can pick up gifts at events, and Cosmopolitan Sales Room always has gifts each round. This round, the gifts were just my taste which doesn’t always happen! In addition to the gifts at Cosmo Sales Room, Entice has recently put out a new group gift and as always it’s beautiful.

This pretty inspirational wall art from Ama is one of the group gifts at Cosmo Sales Room. I love decorating in Second Life, especially when I can pick up well-made beautiful pieces like this one for FREE. The canvas reads “Work Hard, Do Good, Be Incredible” which is sweet and direct, which makes me like it even more. I’ll be leaving this one up at my house for sure. Everyone can benefit from a little inspiration, I know I can!

Also at Cosmo Sales Room as a FREE group gift is this fun quirky necklace from Tantalum. The Ouija board necklace comes in both a female and a male version and can be re-sized by clicking the necklace. Once again, this gift is exactly my taste, a little playful and maybe a little sinister. If you like it too, better hurry, there are just a few days left of this round of Cosmo Sales Room. To get these gifts simply join the FREE Cosmopolitan Sales Room group and click the gift vendors while wearing your tag.

Finally, this saucy low-cut dress is the current group gift at Entice. I like that this dress is simple yet elegant in style, and could be easily dressed up or down, and I think it would even look cute with leggings or pants. Also this FREE group gift comes with a texture change hud. I really like this “Love” pattern, with Valentines Day just around the corner Love is certainly the theme of the moment. I included a copy of the vendor photo for this great dress from Entice below so you can see the additional textures included. To get this dress join the FREE Entice group and pay the vendor 1 linden while wearing your tag. You will then be instantly repaid the 1 linden.

Grumbly Mondays

Hello FabFree Folks!

Grumbly Monday

I hope your Monday is full of good things today.  If you’re in need of a break from your Monday… I suggest Grumble.  No, don’t grumble about Monday… go to Grumble and play the Grumble Lucky Number 16 Hunt.  There are sixteen female gifts scattered over the SIM for Hunters all for 1L each. I found this elegant Winter Knit dress and couldn’t resist it. The dress comes in standard Mesh sizes XS-L and has a good alpha layer.  This ‘sweet sixteen’ Hunt runs until January 31st so don’t delay.

Grumbly Monday

While I was on the Hunt I found this great snowflake necklace at Glint. The “Falling Snowflakes Necklace” was actually the prize for the Gingerbread Hunt now ended. However, as of this posting,  the prize is still out at Glint.  Be aware, this Hunt is over and Glint can remove the prize at any time. So if you missed it and want it… hurry over now!
