When I start to dream aloud

It’s time to Steam again with the Steam X Hunt from Historical Hunts. This rounds theme is “The Dream” and there are indeed lots of ‘dreamy’ prizes to be had.

Steam_001

I picked out Tayren’s Fantasy Fashions ‘Aviator’ outfit to show y’all today because it’s two prizes in one. This outfit is not all standardized mesh which makes it unisex as well as fitting everyone. The build is very very nice and seeing some of the “old fashioned” clothing was refreshing! The outfit comes with the top jacket, the pants, the gloves, the boots, the scarf and the goggled hat. There is also a large backpack which made me think of something an aviator or pilot might carry on a long voyage. One note: the boots and especially the gloves are for system hands and feet.

I added the ‘Steam Bands’ thigh cuff from P3 to my outfit just to ‘gear it up’ a bit. This cuff comes in both make and female versions and is resizable mesh. I like the added touch of a little leather. ;)

The Steam X hunt runs from March 1 until March 31 so you have plenty of time to get your gear on and go find ‘The Dream’!

P.S. bonus points to you if you get the title reference….  :)

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL medieval-fantasy-hunt-poster-13March splashed onto the hunt scene on Sunday, and with it a big storm of new and exciting hunts. You can check the list yourself… there is a bountiful selection of themes… Clover, Leprechauns, Dogs, Cats, Steampunk, and the 90’s, just to name a few. If you can’t find a hunt that “blows your dress up” you’re just not trying hard enough!

My partner and I are having great fun hunting. We’ve just started in on the Steam X  hunt. It’s a big hunt. We’re expecting to do it in stages and take about three or four days. The Best In Boots hunt is also on my list of hunts to do. So many hunts, so little time!

If you haven’t tried hunting yet, there’s help to get started. FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages with useful advice. You’ll find yourself becoming a “huntaholic” in no time.

So let’s get out there and do some hunting!  Just poke the names for more information on each hunt.

See you out on the hunt!

Flowers on my toes!

Heyya FabFree-ers! Have you checked out the Cart Sale yet? No? Why not???  All kidding aside there are some great things to be had for very little Lindens. Like these unusual and funky floral ‘shoes’ from Roped passions called ‘Entangled Elegance’.

ropedpassion

They come in eight lovely colors for Slink High Feet. I picked out the purple and the silver to show off but all of the colors are gorgeous. Wouldn’t the silver ones be perfect for a Fairy or an Enchanted Garden theme wedding?

The Cart sale runs until March 16th and that will creep up quicker than you think. Hurry over and find “just the thing”!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL ApplyYourBodyHunt PosterGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, March 3.

The Apply Your Body Hunt holds down the top spot today, one of many hunts on the list that got started on March 1st. There are all kinds of new and exciting hunts that you can be a part of. The 90’s Hunt looks good and the annual Steam Hunt (the 10th this year) is always one of my favorites. What can I say? I’m a steampunker at heart.

There are plenty of other themes to choose from as well. Poke through the hunts until you find one that titillates your brain.

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!

Mr. Pink

Santino Male GG

Hello again Fab Free’rs, it’s Pru in the form of Diamos, again. I’ve been enjoying the ability to show you some of the great finds I come across for all our male readers out there. Originally I had intended to show you this FREE Group Gift for the guys from Santino Design along with the female gift I showed here, but I was having some technical issues so I split the gifts up and now here we are!

I think it shows confidence and character when guys are willing to wear bright colors that might sometimes have been considered “feminine” colors. This mesh hoodie is a great example of some casual menswear in a bright fun color. I think it looks great. The Santino Design Group is FREE to join, and the hoodie is a current FREE gift for all group members.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair – Action Mesh Hair Joe

Skin – the body co. Hunter II

Hoodie – SANTINO DESIGN Long Sleeve Hooded T-Shirt ‘WESLEY’ PURPLE – FREE Group Gift/Group is FREE to Join

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Find Your Wild Side HuntIt’s Friday, February 27th, and that means that a plethora of February hunts are due to end tomorrow night. If you’re quick, there are still plenty of hunt gifts to grab, so check out the current hunts and get cracking!

Another thing to remember is that hunts are great fun to do with friends, even a mob. With all those free (or nearly free) hunt gifts, you’ll all come home with lots of clothing, furniture, skins, poses, and whatnot. Many of the hunts have pics of the prizes on their web sites. You can check them out and see if that particular hunt is what you’re looking for. It’s well worth the trip!

If you haven’t tried hunting yet, there’s help to get started. FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages with useful advice. You’ll find yourself becoming a “huntaholic” in no time.

So let’s get going!  Just poke the names for more information on each hunt.

See you out on the hunt!

It’s got quite the long name… the Love Lust Faith Obsessive + Dreams Hunt is occupying the top spot in our list this week. It’s a L$1 hunt and  you’ll be looking for a purple heart. I’ll have to check in on this hunt too. It’s on my list of hunts to do.

Get wild with the Find Your Wild Side Hunt, which is at #2. This hunt only has 16 stops so you can probably bust it out in an hour or so. Prize pics are available on the hunt’s web site.

Then… check out the rest of the hunts going on right now. There is a theme for nearly everyone to enjoy.

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.

Snapshot_003Shiny Shabby is a new event in Second Life that will be running monthly shopping rounds, beginning on the 20th of each month offering featured designs, and some gacha machine prizes too. I took a trip down there yesterday to check out the offerings and found that not only do they have a really beautiful build, but they have a ton of free gifts available in this round too.  Some gifts are located at the shop displays, however all of the gifts I am showing you today (hair, poncho, boots, sign, teddy-deer) can be found right at the landing point on the end of the gypsy wagon in bags.  No  need to join a group, simply  purchase them for 0L.
