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.

Everyone Needs a Good Towel

Hey Fabulous people!

Astrid’s been on vacation this week… BUT… I decided to sneak in with a post and a few items for all the men out there. Because everyone needs a good towel in this summer heat.

Everyone Needs a Good Towel

If you aren’t a member of Legal Insanity, the group is really worth joining. It’s going to set you back a one time fee of 99L, but there is an entire wall of past group gifts, including this rigged mesh men’s towel (there’s a ladies version on the wall too) that you can pick up. Each gift will cost you just 1 little Linden after paying your group fee and they are high quality gifts. The current group gift that is on the counter is FREE.

I also stopped by Nerdy Girl, which has recently moved to a new location. With all this warm weather, I was thinking cool… or Nerdy. See it how you will. And the current group gift at Nerdy Girl fit the bill. There are a set of matching men’s and women’s lingerie there (yes ladies… you get the goods at the shop too!) in either this For the Alliance! which I’m showing you in the picture above… OR a For the Horde! set if you prefer that. You can show your allegiance to Nerd-dom either way😉

The boxers come in system layers as well as omega appliers for mesh bodies, making them a really great group gift. They are FREE with your one time fee of 25L.

Your Friday Hunt Report

WOH1 logoJune is here and a bunch of spicy hot new hunts started up on Wednesday, June 1st. You can be the first kid on your block to enjoy that wonderful new hunt smell.

The organizers of the Men Only Hunt are taking a turn to the opposite gender and have introduced the Women Only Hunt. This is a big hunt with 67 stores, and so far it looks like a hit. You might want to check it out.

The World at Your Feet Hunt should appeal to you if you feet, shoes, boots, etc. It’s another pretty beefy hunt with 46 stores in it. Might take you a couple of days. Bring a friend!

Why So Early Kittens?

Snapshot_004Hey there FabFree readers!!  Today, as you can see…  I am up WAY too early tendng to the needs of my very needy kittens.  Why are they always up so early?  I wish I was a morning person…  Seriously, if I could wake up at 8:30 every day, that would be just fine with me:).  Work days, weekends, whatever – I think that’s a natural time for me to just wake up without alarms…  or cats.

These Witty Cats by the way, are available at this round of The Arcade Gacha by Mutresse for 50L per play.  There are several really funny/sassy cats to try your luck on.

I haven’t even had a chance to get dressed yet, but since I haven’t, I suppose I should tell you that this cute Flamingo Love Lingerie Set is available at Milk Tea as a free hunt prize for the Women Only Hunt!  The hunt icon you are looking for is a little coconut, and it’s really quite easy to find given the hint that you can pick up at the landing.  I’m including their vendor ad below so that you can see the full set up close.
WOH_Flamingos & summerI should also mention, since they fall under 75L that the items used to build the scene in my photos are mostly made up of items from the Dust Bunny Wanderlust Gacha Set (Arcade Gacha – 50L per play).  I have used the Hadera Caravan, Apothecary Cabinet, Belted Pillows and Bouquet Teacup.

The “Let’s Have a Good Day Coffee Tray” can be found in the FollowUs Marketplace store as a dollarbie!  If I am up anyways, I might as well eat and get on with my day, right?:)

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.

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!

Go Ahead, Get Your Knickers In A Twist

koala

Hello Fabulouses!  If you are a long time reader of FabFree, you may remember seeing posts done by our bloggers showing off designs from a cute little shop named Sleeping Koala over the years.  The shop did close down a while back, but is now re-opening under the name Koala and they have a sweet little free opening gift for everyone!

The Opening Gift includes the Fishes & Fans Nickers you see my cute little butt in, provided in four system layers (2 fans and 2 fish prints) as well as an Omega Applier.  You’ll find this cute little gift on the floor by the entrance ;)  Welcome back Koala!

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.

The Gift Of Fab At Hypnose

Snapshot_004
Hypnose has a fab new group gift you might want to pick up! This Lovetchnic Dress is available to inworld group members as a free gift.  The group is free to join too – so if Hypnose is new to you as it was to me, you can test out the quality of their designs without having to shell out a single linden.  This dress comes in regular mesh sizes as well as fits for Belleza, Slink and Maitreya.  I think it could pass for a really cute nightie or even a halter top with a pair of cute summer capris!  Try it out –😉.
