Your Friday Hunt Report

WS-Hunt-Logo-Aug-16There are some nifty sim and store hunts going on right now. The Botanica Butterfly Hunt just began a couple of days ago and it’s always fun to run around Botanica. I’m told that this hunt is also educational.

My partner and I have been working on the massive Around The Grid in 80 Days hunt. With 146 stores, it’s going to take us a few days to complete, but we have until the end of September, so we should make it.

Speaking of big hunts, you’ll want to get an early start on the Womenstuff Hunt. It has 150 stops, so bring some friends and bring some lunch, because this one is going to take you a while.

Not seeing the perfect hunt for you? Check out the big boodle of hunts that are coming in the next couple of months!

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.

Here’s a little something for merchants. If you’d like to get your store into a hunt, these are the ones that are looking for participants…

Get Leid HuntGood Morning Fabulous Fans! We’re seeing lots more sim and store hunts crop up lately. Not only are these hunts fun and rewarding, but you can usually knock them out in a very short time, often less than an hour. Halloween (well October in general) is a big big time for store hunts so there will be lots more of these cropping up in six weeks or so.

There are all sorts of hunts to choose from on these “hot August nights.” Just click the hunt names below and you can find out all about them. I’m sure you can find one that’s just the ticket for your sense of style.

Flamingo

Flamingo Hello There Fab Free’rs! I know it’s been a minute since I put up a blog post, my apologies for that. Real Life has me on my toes these days. Hopefully I’ll find a bit of calm soon and be able to get back into a regular routine. I miss this! For today I have a few little things to share with you to create a cute everyday warm-weather look.

Starting with the eyes, or shall I say the eye makeup, Slack Girl has out a pretty set of eye makeup as a recent group gift. This pretty gift includes 3 variations of this pretty winged liner with a subtle shadow. The package has a Catwa/Omega applier for Catwa and Omega compatible heads, as well as classic system layers. The SlackGirl group has a one time join fee of 100 linden, however there is a full wall of FREE gifts including this one available to all group members. Don’t forget to wear that tag!

I really love it when designers make demos that are wearable. It really helps you see how an item is going to look, as well as allows you to test a product. The nails and rings Pru has on are a wearable demo from Angel Rock. The rings and nails are all part of the same single attachment, meant to fit Maitreya Lara hands. I found this pretty FREE wearable demo on the Marketplace. The rings are well detailed, and I genuinely like the colors. In the package you’ll find right and left hand attachments to fit several hand sizes, however you must be wearing Maitreya Lara mesh hands as well. You’ll also find a HUD in the package, however it is for demo purposes only. It will allow you to see the possible options of the full product, but it will not make any changes to your rings or nails.

Lastly, how cute is this top from AtiK?! I love the soft overlay floral pattern combined with pretty pink flamingos. This mesh top looks so cute on, and like it would be comfortable on even the most hot humid days. AtiK‘s in-world group is FREE to join, making this lovely group gift FREE as well. In the package you’ll get the mesh top in standard mesh sizes, as well as a matching alpha layer. There is an entire wall of group gifts at the AtiK location, just join the group and pick them up while wearing your group tag.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

WS-Hunt-Logo-Aug-16There are lots of summer hunts going on right now, so if  you’re trying to beat the heat… just stay indoors with the AC cranked up and run around in Second Life! Really… you’ll sweat hardly at all.

If you’re a woman, you’ll want to take a run at the Womenstuff Hunt. This hunt is one of the best, so go grab all the women’s clothing and accessories before they’re gone. There are 150 stores so it may take you a couple of days to finish.

I haven’t checked it out yet, but the Carnival Of Souls Hunt seems very popular. A bit of the macabre as we all gear up for Halloween.

Get !gO!ne

Get gO!ne When the heat gets to be more than I can handle, dipping your feet in some cool clear water is a favorite way to cool down and cool off. It also helps to wear loose-fitting comfortable clothing like this orange and white gingham dress from gO!. This fully mesh dress is the latest group gift at gO!, and as always the details and textures are beautiful. This FREE group gift comes in a fitted mesh size, a Maitreya Lara size, a Slink Hourglass size, and a Slink Physique size. Also included in the gift box is a matching alpha layer. To get this cute dress, head over to gO! and join the VIP group, then click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag. The gO! VIP group has a one time join fee of 50 lindens.
Kokolores DigbyAlso, I picked up this Catwa lash applier by Kokolores on the Marketplace for FREE. I feel like I have neglected to try lash appliers with the mesh heads, and I’ve been meaning to. These lashes by Kokolores are, I think, nice and full looking which goes along with the name “Mascara Lashes”. They do have the appearance of wearing mascara in a way. The applier works for Catwa heads only, and will change the upper and lower lashes with just a click. So if you’re looking for something slightly more dramatic than what comes with your Catwa head, these are an excellent FREE option.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

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.

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!
