Your Friday Hunt Report

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.

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.

Cruel Summer

Heyya FabFree!

Cruel Summer

This is gonna be a quick one since my real world is way too hot and the air conditioner is still kaput. So I’m all cranky and hot. 😦   I’m trying to forget my RL troubles with a bit of SL fun so I popped over to the Cruel Summer Hunt going on at the I heart the Cart sale. I thought ‘cruel’ was appropriate for my mood.

Just grab the Hint Notecard at the beginning and look for the cactuses along the trail to find all kinds of nifty prizes for 2L. I hunted down this cute tank and skirt from Cupcake Clothing. The off-shoulder tank and the skirt are separate pieces and each has it’s own alpha layer. Each piece comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L. The great sun hat is also included and it’s unrigged Mesh so you can reposition and resize to your heart’s content.

The Cruel Summer Hunt and the I heart the Cart sale will only run until July 31st so hurry over.

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.

Short and Sweet

Heyya FabFree!

Short and Sweet

I’ve got a quickie for y’all tonight. Quick but sweet! Sweet Tea Couture has this gorgeous bustier top set out for the MidSummer Night’s Dream Hunt for just one little Linden. This is the ‘Wake Forest’ top and it comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and a ton of appliers. You get Maitreya, SLink Hourglass and Physique, Belleza Isis, Freya and Venus, and the Mesh Project. Like everything from Sweet Tea Couture, the Wake Forest is beautifully built and beautifully textured.

I needed something special to show off the neckline of my new top so I headed to the Luminesse Cart at the Bi Annual Cart Sale at the Wash. Ms Astrid showed us the ‘Sleeping cherub’ pendant from Luminesse here first. But the Cart has so many pretty things I had to have the ‘Ornamental Beauty’ necklace and earrings set in fern green and gold for my own. The necklace is fully resizable via script to get your perfect fit.

The MidSummer Night’s dream Hunt runs until July 21st but the Cart Sale ends on July 6th, so don’t delay!

Bluebell

Happy Monday, FabFree!

Bluebell

I guess I could have called this post Blue Monday or Monday blues… but in a good way! My “blues” are curtesy of the Nerdy Girl Cart at the Bi Annual Wash cart Sale today. My gorgeous blue dress is the “Beach Dress” in Blue Ocean. This cute dress comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-L and has it’s own alpha layer. The Beach Dress comes in three ‘wave’ colors, a cloud white, denim and a super cute nautical print. All for just 10L each!  Even my cute “Flower Sandals” are from the Nerdy Girl Cart. The sandals come in five colors ( each sold separately) and with a rigged version for SLink flat feet and an unrigged version as well.

I’ve even got a great new blue hairstyle today from Analog Dog. This is ‘Kanpai’ and not only does it come in blue… it comes in pink and auburn and blonde and… well, every color Analog Dog makes! Analog Dog has set out the full free fatpack of Kanpai as part of the Second Life 13th Birthday Celebration at Hairology.  There’s a ton of gorgeous free hairstyles to be had at Hairology this round as well as deep discounts on some of the best styles for the best designers! Just look for the layer cake at many of the booths and have a slice.

The Bi Annual Cart Sale at the Wash runs until July 6th while Hairology runs until June 30th so don’t delay.

Time is Short

Hello FabFree-ers!

Time is Short

This is going to be a quick post this time because you don’t have much time left to scoop up this cute mini dress for 10 little lindens! Before you say that 10L is a lot for a Hunt prize remember that 100% of the proceeds from this Hunt are going directly to the American Cancer Society. So you get some wonderful gifts and a great charity gets some funding!

This is the ‘Spring Gift’ dress from Soraida and it’s the 10L prize for the Once Upon a Cure Hunt going on now. Spring Gift comes in the standard mesh sizes XXS-L and has a good alpha layer. It’s the perfect breezy little dress for a garden party, isn’t it?

Time is very short for this Hunt! You only have until June 4! So hurry hurry!

Coquette

30L Saturday is always prime time to stock up on your roleplay wardrobe, and this Saturday was no exception! I found a couple of pieces that I fell in love with this morning and wanted to share with you!

Coquette

This Dionne Gown in Bronze is by Velvet Whip. I’m showing it to you without the optional scarf and undershirt, as I also picked up the silver owl Coquette necklace that you can see in the close-up below. The necklace is also from Velvet Whip. Each piece is only 30L each, and makes for a stunning addition to a medieval or gorean roleplay wardrobe.

The dress comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as three fitmesh sizes, so you are sure to find a good fit. The necklace is copy and modify to allow for adjustments as well, making 30L a great price for this beautiful piece.

Be sure to hurry though, these deals are only for today!
