Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Biker Hunt 2Good Morning Fabulous Fans! It looks to be another excellent weekend for getting out and around Second Life to do some hunting. It’s really the best way to discover some new stores you haven’t heard of before, find some new places in Second Life, AND come away with lots of stuff to boot.

Speaking of boots… two hunts where you might find some are the Biker Hunt and the Medieval Fantasy Hunt. Both of those titles say “boots” to me, though I haven’t actually browsed through the prize pics. Seriously… I really do enjoy a good set of boots. They’re way better than, oh, say… loafers.

So check out all the hunts below. I’m sure there is one that will appeal to you.

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.

Finally, something more my style. This elegant Steam inspired jacket is “the Full Steam” jacket from Pixal Perfect Products. For the small price of 1L this can be yours as part of the Spring Foolery Hunt. The jacket comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL and has it’s own alpha layer. Pixal Perfect Products has also set out a ladies hunt prize and it’d be ‘perfect’ for heading to the beach.

The Spring Foolery Hunt runs until April 30th.

Until next time,

I Heart Rompers

AB Gift Close

Hello Fab Free! Am I the only one whose schedule has been whacko lately? haha I swear I will find a regular rhythm again soon. Anyway, enough about me, let’s talk about this scandalously cute romper from American Bazaar. Yep, I said scandalous. The low cut, wide v of this romper means  you’ll need to be careful when wearing it, or not, just know you might be showing more than your cleavage. Even so, I do love it, and it’s in my favorite not-a-color, black! The romper is Amercan Bazaar’s most recent FREE group gift for the ladies. It’s of course fully mesh and comes in several fitmesh sizes and a Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza fit. For a little modesty, and to add a touch of casual to this look, I chose to wear an applier tube-top under the romper. The American Bazaar Fashion Group is FREE to join at this time. Wear your group tag. Go to American Bazaar. Get this romper. Look adorable.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Marketplace HuntGood morning fabulous friends! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, March 29.

The rather unique Marketplace Hunt has been very popular of late. In this hunt you don’t have to run around in-world. All the prizes are on the marketplace. All you need do is go from one marketplace store to the next and look for the specially marked items. It’s pretty cool.

If you’re still in bunny/egg mode, there are a few Easter hunts still on the grid, but don’t delay because these will be ending very soon.

Just a reminder, that these are the 10 most popular viewed hunts over the past 48 hours or so. We don’t know how many people actually start (or finish) any given hunt and this ranking can (and probably will) change in a few hours.

See you out on the hunt!

A Bit More Goth

Hey there, FabFree-ers! I’m back with another goodie from both Goth1c0 and the Twisted Hunt.

A bit more Goth

There’s something Goth-ish going on here at FabFree lately, don’t ya think. But how can I resist showing of this fantastic coat from Goth1c0? This is the “Traveler Coat” and it’s the 0L free gift for the Twisted Hunt. I know it says coat but I think it makes a really fetching dress too. The coat comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-L and has it’s own alpha layer. The details are spot on and the build is really great. There also a very swank men’s free gift for the Hunt in store as well. While you’re at Goth1c0 be sure to check out all the Gacha machines and the group Lucky Boards for tons more goodies.

The Twisted Hunt runs until March 31st so don’t delay!

Steam Punk Princess

Steam Punk Close There’s a fun underwater-steam-punk themed grid-wide hunt happening for the month of March. Steam: The Hunt “Realms of The Deep” started March 1st and continues through the end of the month. The Steam Hunt is a FREE hunt, simply find the hidden gear, and click it to get your prize. I had a lot of fun playing dress-up with some of the items I found on the hunt, I think you will too! I also picked up the March group gift at ECCO because the dainty little crown was too cute to pass up and it looks adorable with this playful steam punk outfit.

I also picked up this cute little crown at ECCO. The crown is the March group gift at ECCO, and I think it looks super cute with this steam punk outfit. The crown gift includes a color change hud that allows you to choose between 6 different colors for the accent roses on the crown. To get this gift, head to the ECCO main store, pay the one time join fee of 200 lindens, and claim your group gift.

The little hooded jacket, ruffled corset, and striped skirt are all part of the female gift at Snowpaws. There’s a male gift included in the folder as well. The FREE Steam Hunt gift at Snowpaws includes several mesh sizes for easy fitting. Each piece can be worn separately as well as together. I love the playful feel of this look, it’s cute and has that steam-punk vibe without being over-the-top. With the right shoes I think you could take this outfit from fantasy and role play to something more urban everyday.

Speaking of shoes, these boots from Lindy Modern are one of two pairs you’ll get as your FREE Steam Hunt prize. The boots are highly detailed and include alpha layers. There’s no need for mesh feet to wear these boots from Lindy Modern, they fit mesh and classic avatars. I think these boots would also be cute with a solid colored top and jeans, for a fun modern look with a steam punk edge.
Steam Punk Next stop on my hunting spree is Park Place. The Steam Hunt prize at Park Place is this gigantic book case complete with male and female poses. It also has a giant aquarium in the center that is sure to make you feel like you’re deep under the ocean waves. This FREE Steam Hunt gift at Park Place was too large for my little laptop to get a full sized clear photo of it, so I included an ad from Park Place below.

Here are the details, Happy Hunting!

Twisted Gold

Twisted Gold

Gold is such an in color right now, and why not, it’s gorgeous! The Twisted Hunt has started and it’s fun to see all the pretty black and gold prizes in this Odyssey themed hunt. The Twisted Hunt prize at Hudson’s is a statement piece to say the least. This bolero style jacket in black and gold is fully mesh and has system layers included along with Omega appliers. Also included in this FREE hunt prize are some fun lace accents that can be added to the jacket for some added versatility. I chose to leave out the lace additions, so I included a copy of the Twisted Hunt gift ad below so you can see how the jacket looks both ways.

March Comes In Like A Rabbit!

whc ashburylavarock 1

Happy Wednesday, everyone! Here we are in March with a whole new set of hunts and group gifts to pick up! When you do what I do, the beginning of a new month is always the most exciting period. Don’t forget what they say: March comes in like a rabbit, scurrying around picking up free gifts, and goes out like a rabbit, too! A much heavier one, weighed down with a glut of new inventory items, but still a rabbit!

Ashbury Designs is a very nice place to get male clothes. They are on my list of must visits at the beginning of a new month, and for good reason. Ashbury Designsfree group gifts have a way of making a home for themselves in my inventory and certainly their current one is a fine example. The Ace Military Shirt is a one piece mesh combo. Comprised of an open blue denim shirt with a very subtle camouflage pattern and a black T-Shirt, it is a simple look which looks very real-world plausible. Comfortable looking, it comes in 3 Mesh sizes, 2 Fitmesh and one Fitmesh for TMP bodies. The shade of blue of the shirt is beautiful and the detail and texture is extremely attractive! This is one free group gift you definitely should not pass up.

Lavarock has a new store and I am truly happy to welcome them back! For those of you who read my autobiography, you will recall I became a blogger partially because of a great free group gift Lavarock produced. I simply did not have enough friends on SL to tell about it, so I began blogging! I was thrilled when my editor, Andi, told me there was a new group gift in their store and I assure you it is excellent! The Urban Male Sneakers are a pair of Hi-top shoes for regular avy feet, so everyone can wear them if they like. In fact, since there is a woman’s version out in the women’s area at Lavarock as well, nearly everyone can wear them! They are Mesh and extremely cool. The most spectacular thing about them is the texture change hud! These sneakers come with a MONSTER HUD which gives you access to 15 sneaker textures, 5 laces, 5 tongues, 5 straps, 6 sock variations including hide and 2 sole colors. EPIC work on the hud, Lavarock. Thank you very much! For a free group gift, a hud like this is rare and these shoes are going to be keepers. Go get ‘em, people!

That’s all for me tonight. Rest assured I will be hopping around the grid picking up more freebies and cheapies tomorrow. Until then, I hope you take advantage of all the fun Second Life has to offer. See you on the grid!—–WHC Riler
