Your Friday Hunt Report

pastelpartyhuntIt’s Friday, so time once again to let you in on all the hunts going on right now, PLUS the ones that will be happening in the weeks to come. So much hunt goodness… so little time!

You’ve got about a week left for all of the July hunts, so you might want to check out hunts like the Pastel Party Hunt, Beached Bunny, or Around The Grid in 80 Days (now in its fourth installment). I’m also curious about the Raining Tacos Hunt. That sounds weird but fun to me.

If you poke the names here in this post, you’ll receive all the pertinent information about each hunt.

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.

Art Deco Darling

Tuesday
I feel a little like a Showgirl in these fabulous group gifts from Swallow and SlackGirl, and I’m perfectly fine with that! It’s been a while since I showed some pretty makeup and accessories, so these group gifts are just the thing. It’s extra fun that they all happen to look so lovely together!

SlackGirl is one of my favorite stores for makeup in Second Life. There seem to always be group gifts as well, which certainly doesn’t hurt. This gorgeous lipstick is part of the huge Clarice set available FREE to all SlackGirl group members. This particular gift is for the Catwa head-wearers only. The gift includes 3 huds with 8 lipstick shades each. I really like the high shine of these lipsticks, it’s a nice departure from the matte lipsticks you see a lot. Also at SlackGirl, along with many other gifts, are these pretty little eye jewels. These FREE group gift eye jewels can be worn with mesh or classic avatars. The gift includes a left and right attachment, and a hud that allows you to adjust the jewel color, and the metal color. The SlackGirl group has a one time join fee of 100 lindens, however I’m certain you won’t be disappointed, there are several group gifts still available including the ones I’ve shared here.

I will admit, I don’t often wear earrings in Second Life, but I think these are beautiful! These art deco looking earrings are one of several FREE group gifts out at Swallow. These beautiful earrings include a color change hud as well, and can be resized using the hud. I’m sure you’ve been wondering about the pretty butterflies floating around my hair! These are another FREE group gift at Swallow. This butterfly headpiece comes in several colors and can be sized via touch menu, I of course chose this orange color because it reminds me of the Monarch butterflies I love. At the original size this accessory is more of a hat, but I used the resize scripts and scaled mine down to look more like a fancy fascinator. The Swallow group also has a one time join fee of just 30 lindens. This is a steal when you consider the lovely group gifts available!

Finally, if you like the pretty face Pru has on with the red eyeliner that goes so well with the lipstick from SlackGirl, it’s another of the Corrie gacha appliers Essences has available for just 75 lindens per play at The Liaison Collaborative ! There’s more info about this head applier in my previous post here.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

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!

It’s a Jungle Out There

It's a Jungle Out There

It’s a jungle out there! But you’ll be ready… because House of Ruby and alaskametro<3 have delivered!

Previously, I showed you information about the Gone Wild gacha for men by House of Ruby at the GachAmazing event [HERE]. But the ladies have not been left out! For just 56L per spin, us gals have a chance at one of 7 pretty bodystockings (I’m showing you the peridot) or 2 rare latex suits… just like the guys did. These come in either Slink or Omega appliers for mesh bodies.

It's a Jungle Out There 2

I found the perfect make up to accompany my wild jungle look! The Body Art Hunt is on until June 30th, with lots of great great gifts for you to hunt down… including a great set of FREE eyeshadows by alaskametro. This “Tilda” eyeshadow includes 6 color choices on the pallet, system layers, and appliers for LeLutka, Omega, and Slink.

Also, thank you to Fabfree reader Dreamin who tipped me off that alaskametro is having a limited time sale… everything at the store is currently 50% off for a limited time! I’m not sure when this sale ends, but hurry so you don’t miss out!

Tiki Heat

Tiki Heat 1

I can tell things are heating up for the summer… as there are a lot of summer related hunts and group gifts popping up — like this fantastic palm and tiki inspired bathing suit called “Pamila” that is the current SL Frees & Offers group gift at Darling Haute Couture. If you stop by the main-store and don your group tag (the group is FREE to join), this colorful mesh swim suit in all the standard sizes is yours FREE!

Tiki Heat 2

I really enjoy dressing my outfits up a little, so as usual I looked for some jewelry… and I found an adorable FREEBIE! My Lucky Tiki necklace that I am wearing is one of three tiki necklaces you will get from Crev if you take a peek at their marketplace link. This necklace is transfer only, but it’s high quality and FREE! I’m thrilled!

I also donned a bit of blue lipstick courtesy of alaskametro<3, as they are offering a FREE tester of their Heat matte lipsticks on the Marketplace as well.  You’ll get a system layer lipstick as well as appliers for TMP, EVE’olution, Lelutka, Loudmouth, Nyam, Omega, and SLink… all in this bodacious blue. If you love it enough to buy the full version you can get that [here] and it will only set you back 75L.

I did splurge a bit on my eyeshadow, as I really fell in love with alaskametro<3‘s Creme Duo eyeshadow appliers. Again, you get all the above mentioned head appliers, plus a system layer. The full palette of colors is only 75L if you decide to dive in. If you want to test it out first, you can get a FREE tester [here] first.:)

More Gifts Right Meow

Meow Meow

Hello again Fab Free’rs! I’m back with a few more gifts from the current round of The Instruments, and a fun group gift from SlackGirl. I’m certain I’ve mentioned in previous blogs of mine that I started out my Second Life as a Neko, and though I don’t often wear ears and a tail these days, it’s still one of my favorite “styles” for lack of a better word when I’m feeling cute and playful.

The phrase “cute and playful” definitely fits the gift from BYRNE at The Instruments. The mesh jacket and tie combination is a FREE gift that comes with 3 versions. Pru is wearing the “original” version as named in the gift. Each version has a color variation of this fun fabric. I love how whimsical it looks with the splashes of color and mesmerizing curved lines. It definitely makes me think of something hand painted and high fashion.

Meow Close Meow

Also at The Instruments for FREE is this lovely collar from Indulge Temptation. The collar is fully scripted, however I’ll be honest I am not entirely familiar with collar scripts, and so I’m not going to begin to explain what the scripts do. LOL Some of the options appear to be for basic things like re-sizing, while others are lifestyle related. Either way, the collar is adorable on, and I personally am content to wear it as a pretty accessory. Additionally, these gorgeous nails are also a FREE gift at The Instruments. This gorgeous gold-tipped polish set is from Alme, and it includes 3 variations, including grey, and a black version. The applier set will work for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and Omega compatible nails.

Finally, I mentioned a gift from SlackGirl, and you guessed it, it’s the beautifully done kitty face! This pretty kitty makeup is a full face applier Group Gift from SlackGirl. The gift includes an applier for Catwa heads, an applier for Omega compatible heads, and a classic makeup layer. To get this gift you’ll need to join the SlackGirl group, which carries a one time fee of 100 lindens. You’ll find this gift along with many others on a wall just inside the SlackGirl entrance.

Here are the details, I hope you enjoy this playful Neko look!

Free Gifts at The Instruments!

The Instruments

Hello Hello Fab Free! I’ve missed you!! It’s great to be back. On this lovely Friday I have lots of FREE gifts to show you from the current round of The Instruments. The Instruments event is celebrating an anniversary this month, so most of the participating designers have set out FREE gifts to help celebrate.  So of course, there are some that I just had to show you, starting with this dress!

I’m not sure which part of this dress from Two Foxes I like best, the cute little collar and sleeve cuffs, or the mandala-like pattern in the material. This FREE dress comes in several mesh sizes, and includes an alpha layer so anyone can wear it. You can pick up this pretty knee-length fitted dress at the Two Foxes booth at The Instruments. Do not wait too long however, this round ends May 25th.

The Instruments Close

Also at this anniversary round of The Instruments, this detailed clutch from Yeliz. The clutch is also FREE, and it includes a color change hud that allows you to adjust the color of the purse, and the hardware separately. There are enough color options that this handbag will match almost anything. Lastly, how could you not notice this gorgeous nude lip color from JUMO. As their FREE gift, JUMO set out a pretty set of high-gloss lip colors you’ll love. The colors range from bright reds and pinks to this lovely nude shade shown. This gift includes regular tattoo layers, as well as appliers for Catwa and TMP heads.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

In The Harsh Light of the Day

In the Harsh Light of the Day

Hello Fab Free’rs! I’m feeling very Morticia Addams in this awesome dress from MoDanna, and I love it! This black leather gown is low in the front, low in the back and fits like a glove. It comes in several mesh sizes including specific body fits. The slight flare at the ankles gives it an added touch of goth-y elegance. To get this dress, simply wear your MoDanna group tag (the group is FREE to join), head to MoDanna, and pay the gift vendor 1 linden.

Modanna Dark 9

To go with the gown from MoDanna, I picked up this gorgeous eye-shadow from SlackGirl. It’s their FREE On9 Anniversary Hunt prize. This gold shadow with a smoky wing from SlackGirl comes with several color options each with the gold base. Additionally this hunt gift comes with appliers for just about every mesh head available, including some I was unaware of. There are also system layers for classic avatars. If you want to continue the hunt, head to On9 and click the cupcakes at each vendor booth for a folder with a hint and a landmark to each main location where you’ll hunt down your FREE cupcake containing the hunt prize.

For the final touch I picked up these beautiful winged-heart earrings are a 10 linden gift at the Dark Side event. The earrings by Indulge Temptation are highly detailed re-sizable mesh, and well worth the 10 lindens. You’ll find them in a gift box at the Indulge Temptation booth at the Dark Side event.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
