Wayward & Lazy

Snapshot_004 Hello Fabulouses! I have put together a cozy outdoor display to show you some free and inexpensive Second Life decorative items and furnishings that are currently available via the Wayward Hunt and the Tag Gacha Event.

I started off with the Trompe Loeil Shotgun Shack that was at the previous round of The Arcade playing at 25L per play.  If you didn’t happen to snag one of these when the event was on, you can play it at the Trompe Loeil Mainstore now.   I then added several pieces of the ISON Tag Gacha Fortune Set such as the curtains in the background, the wooden chests, wooden chair, rugs, pillows and lantern.  This machine is 50L per play.

You can find the Tree Swing by Pixel Mode, which I have placed on my porch (I’m such a rebel) as a free Wayward Hunt prize.  This swing offers a menu full of single animated poses and an adjust option which is really nice if your avatar is not the standard size.  The Salvaged Wood Welcome Sign behind me on the shack wall can be found at Frogstar after you locate that hidden Wayward Hunt icon.

Cheeky Pea is where you need to visit if you’d like to pick up the Rodeo Chime which is available in three colour options as a free Wayward Hunt Prize and the Geode Mobile displayed beside the Rodeo Chimes is at Fancy Décor (also a free WH prize!).

The Toro Racer Bicycle which comes complete with a posing animation is a free group gift for joining the Wayard Events group, and they not only want you to have this gift, but they want you to take pictures of it and submit them for display on their website too.  You can find this in the past notices of the group.

Last but not least, I wanted to mention that the striped Sprite T-Shirt that I am wearing is a Wayward Hunt prize at Moran which comes in a pack of three colours (blue, black and red).

Step Right Up And Enjoy The Show.

awesome stunt show 1

As a young boy, I witnessed a man in a raggedy, sequined outfit jump over a pair of trailers on his dirt bike, much to the delight of the crowd. Years later, here I am on the shoulder of Route 23, promoting the debut of my own daredevil show. I chose to wear a group gift from TentatioN. It is very casual and sporty, but with the camouflage pattern on the cargo pants pockets and in the lower corner of the shirt, it also says, “I am a warrior.” Sometimes, it’s best to let your clothes speak for you (unless they are going to say “I’m a dork”, then there is no reason to give them a megaphone). This, however, says volumes in a positive, masculine manner.  The gift comes with a color change hud, providing four color choices for both the mesh shirt and the pants. TentatioN is not a free group, though. It will set you back 30L, but this outfit in four colors is worth it.

I grew up in Los Tres Dolores New Mexico , a town named for a mystical formation of three cacti. For my death-defying entry into the world of show business, I will jump over that local landmark in the greatest riding lawnmower jump in the history of mankind! At first glance a lawnmower it may not appear to be the best choice for soaring through the air, but isn’t a riding mower essentially a helicopter that has been flipped upside down? This very detailed (and shockingly fast) mower is the current FREE group gift from Knight Performance. This store along with the one which shares the building with them (Surplus Motors) are great sources for beautifully detailed vehicles in SL. Both stores are free groups and offer many Midnight Manias, group gifts and discounts. If you have any interest in vehicles on Second Life, you should seriously consider joining them.

If you are going to let your clothes do the speaking for you, this Rockabilly Hunt prize jacket from The Dark Fae positively screams, “Rebel.” Its cool stand-up collar and retro styling including a must see graphic on its’ back are perfect for people who don’t follow the rules, like me (even if it’s because I can’t be bothered to read them). The Rebel Soul Jacket sports versions with and without the t-shirt and comes in three sizes, plus an additional two sizes in fitmesh. Cool style is timeless, and this jacket is perfectly cool! This Rockabilly Hunt prize is not free, but at only 2L, it’s a bargain. These jeans are extraordinary as well, coming from a quickly expanding store called Illi. Currently on their Midnight Mania board, these Midnight Open Belt Jeans are nicely textured and look great, and a big surprise was the texture hud that came with them. Illi gives us 8 denim colors, 4 belt colors and 4 metal accent textures for the belt. That is excellent versatility for a free gift! It does carry a small logo, but it is easy to overlook, given the generosity of this Midnight Mania prize. Also worth noting are my mesh white leather sneakers, fresh from the Wayward Hunt. The prize, from the store United Colors, comes in both men’s and ladies’ sizes and with that touch of blue on them they look fantastic for a FREE hunt gift. I was truly impressed!

Well, I dressed for success and I did everything right but sometimes that just isn’t enough. Sometimes in life the ramp just isn’t high enough, or maybe the wind shifts, or maybe a lawn mower just isn’t meant to fly. A person could drive themselves crazy sitting back and reflecting over those kinds of things, but not me. I am on to my next great adventure and I hope you will be there with me.—–WHC Riler

Into the Woods

Hello FabFree Folks, I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend.  One of my favorite things to do over a gorgeous weekend like this one is go camping. So when I saw the Camping Trip Hunt I jumped on it.

camping_002

This is the ‘Plaid Tie Outfit’ from JLZ Fashions. I love the cute casual look and the sassy but still modest shorts. This is something I’d even wear in RL as well as SL.  The hair style I’m wearing here is ‘Velma’ from RunAway hair.  Usually, Hunt prize hairs are just the one color but [RA] has given us the entire fatpack for ‘Velma’. That’s 30 colors for us!

camping_001

Adorably Strange Wares has set out this ‘Glamping Hammock’ for the Hunt and I thought it was the perfect way to relax in style. The hammock comes with it’s own two trees and gently falling leaves. There are ten poses so you’ll be sure to find the one that makes you happy and relaxed. Plus, it only has a nine land impact.

 

The 0L Camping Trip Hunt runs until May 15th so get your tents and hiking boots and go get it!

Spring Time at the Dollhouse

Spring at Irrie's Dollhouse

It seems spring is “in the air” everywhere, even at Irrie’s Dollhouse. For many spring also brings about “spring cleaning” when we take extra time to clean up and clear out all the junk we accumulated over the past year. Spring cleaning, at least for me, then turns into “spring redecorating! This cute house shaped frame is the FREE group gift from March. I love the sweet and simple design with playful colors. Also, the frame has re-size scripts for easy customization. I think the frame matches well with the FREE April group gift at Irrie’s Dollhouse. This farm-style table is too cute to pass up, and like the frame includes re-size scripts. The detail of the lace linen is very well done and if you look close you’ll see beautiful patterns in the table top as well. The Irrie’s Dollhouse group is FREE to join, so stop by and pick up these adorable gifts while they are still available!

Lastly, as cute as it is,  I couldn’t bare to see the table sitting empty. Luckily, {Petite Maison} has this delicious looking pie as a FREE Marketplace promotion! The set includes the lattice cobbler/pie on or off the glass serving stand, as well as a steam or no steam version of each. I can almost smell them they look so good!

Here are the details, Happy Decorating!

Follow the Yellow Brick Road

I have another fast post today, FabFree Folks.  Normally I wouldn’t make a post when a Hunt only has a day or two left. However, the Wizard of OZ themed, Holi Hunt is a different sort of thing. This is a super fun little Hunt and I think you’ll enjoy it too. Oh and it’s a 0L Hunt as well!

holi_001

When you arrive at the Holi Hunt start, you tap the sign and will receive a note card with all the instructions and a little tray… that you wear on your head.  Then take a wander around the Oz themed area and pick up little pots of pigments. You just click the pots and they appear on the tray. When you have six pots of colors  a menu will pop up asking you which shop you want the prize from.  Then just follow the yellow brick road to Munchkin land where the shops are and pick up your prize!

Holi2jpg_001

First up is the ‘Holi Dress’, this candy colored retro confection is from Kata0nik. I love the shape of the sundress not to mention it’s in my favorite purple! I topped off my outfit with the ‘Butterfly Hair Bow’ from Half Deer. I always find nifty things from Half Deer but this is just too cute!

 

The Holi Hunt only runs until April 17th so go check it out quick! Your Taxi to the Holi Hunt Start!

WE at Home

WE at Home Gifts

Hi Fab Free! So today I have some fabulous FREEbies that are a bit out of the norm for me. A new shop recently opened up in Second Life called W.E. at Home.  What does the “W.E.” stand for you might ask? Without Exception! This store features high quality furnishings with gorgeous textures and beautiful well-thought-out poses. Not to mention the shop also showcases artwork from several of Second Life’s resident artists. In celebration of their opening, W.E. at Home has a few lovely FREE gifts out for the taking.

First, this pretty throw rug and matching pillows pictured above is one of the FREE gifts from W.E. at Home. It is called the “Friends” rug because it is meant for hanging out and spending time with friends. This mesh rug includes multiple casual male and female poses. Pru is taking advantage of one of the female poses in the photo! I took a close up of the second gift so you can see all the little details.

WE At Home Gift

This beautifully done serving tray with cigars and port wine is the second FREE gift from W.E. at home. Not only is this mesh set nice to look at, it’s functional too! The set gives animated cigars and wine glasses when clicked. Additionally, the tray can be set so that everyone can use it, only group members can use it, or people listed on a custom access list. I think it looks great just sitting out in my living room!

You’ll find both gifts at the back of the store on or near the counter, just purchase the “gift” box next to each item for 0 lindens!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Too Lazy Today

I feel lazy today and the best part is I didn’t do anything but still I feel tired. Haha, guess it’s another lazy day for me.

Hello Fabulouses. I hope your day is more energetic than mine. If not then I brought a cool outfit for you to kick off morning blues and get moving with your day. I giggled when I first wore it because wearing pajamas in SL is very new to me and yes I feel this outfit is more like a pajama outfit for sleep overs. But its too cute too.

 

Too Lazy Today

I love the color of it as its not too bright neither too dull. The colors of this outfit is cheerful as every morning should be. I love the flower patterns on the pants as it gives it quite a lovely natural look and of course we all adore flowers. This outfit is a group gift from Entice and the group is free to join. You will also find lucky boards and MM boards in the store.
