Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Camping Trip HuntThere are lots of pretty cool hunts going on right now… plenty to choose from if you’re a “huntaholic” like me. Camping, shopping, cake, and your inner slut are just a few of the themes playing out as hunts here in the middle of April. If you can’t find a hunt to love, you’re just not looking hard enough!

Haven’t tried going on a hunt yet? Hunts are a great way to pick up a lot of free (or very nearly free) stuff for your inventory. It’s not so difficult and there’s help to get started. FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages with useful tips and tricks.

So check out all these hunts and find one that’s perfect for your sense of style. Just click the names for more information on each hunt.

See you out on the hunt!

The Lady and the Thief

Hello again, FabFolks.  I spent a very pleasant afternoon on the Hunt today and found two things I think you’ll like. I picked the Autism Awareness Hunt   because I have two godsons on the spectrum. So this Hunt is for them!

The Lady and the Thief

C&N Designs is, as y’all know, one of our FabFree Designers and these two Hunt prizes will show you why we’re so excited they are.  First up is the ‘Isabell’ dress in green. I love this gown. The color, the soft floral and the long sleeves almost like wings, all just lovely. You even get the matching necklace.

The Lady and the Thief

This is the men’s prize from C&N Designs, the ‘Thief’ part of our title. Again, C&N has given us a beautiful build as well as a good looking outfit. The boots, the bracers and the belt are all resizable to get that perfect fit.  Since the men’s prize was so nifty, I thought this would be a good time to introduce y’all to Gabriel, my MAlt.  Because sometimes… ya need to indulge the animus.

 

The Autism Awareness Hunt runs until April 30th and will only cost you…0L per prize!

Spring Green

Spring Green Final

Spring green sounds so cliche but I don’t care, over the years green has become one of my favorite colors, and it does remind me of spring! This cute top by Vivi feels especially spring-like with the faint floral pattern and the lovely shade of pale green. The top comes in yellow as well, and the set is a current FREE gift available at Fab Free Headquarters! These tops also have the added detail of some little buttons at the lower back, which I think is sweet and a little sexy. The tops can be worn on system layers, and include Omega Appliers, WowMeh, Lena, Lolas, and Slink appliers.

Spring is in the air at Nail Me! also, the April group gift is out. This FREE mani/pedi set (for Slink hands/nails) includes several pretty pastel options with a delicate dotted pattern. There is also an Omega applier included in the gift. My photo does not do the polish justice, so I included a copy of the vendor photo below. The Nail Me! group is currently FREE to join, so don’t miss out on these. There are also several past group gifts still available, now’s your chance to get them all!

A Splash Of Color You Don’t Want To Brush Off!

WHC FF RTPAINT 3

Little did I realize when I started on Second Life (watching Fab Free and jumping on any freebie I could get my hands on) that someday I would have the chance to contribute to this amazing resource. It gives me great pride to be joining Fab Free as a weekly contributor and I look forward to the great adventure ahead. Getting down to business, there is an excellent Midnight Mania prize out over at Ruca Tease. One great thing about this Mesh Men’s Spilled Paint Open Hoodie w/Shirt is that it comes with a texture change hud. This gives you the flexibility of seven great color options. Very casual and comfortable looking, it is definitely a Midnight Mania board worth tapping, you don’t even have to be in the group!  Do it today though, I hear it could be taken down as early as Friday! Also this week, I’m wearing the FREE GIFT from Poetic Colors. You’ll love these spotted eyes in the tropic color. The gift is very generous as it includes both mesh and system eyes, 3 sizes, and 3 brightness variations. They are quite unique looking, and for those of us who collect great eyes, they are not to be missed!  I want to thank Love, Pru, Julianna and all the other contributors to Fab Free for this opportunity to contribute to a blog I’ve admired for a very long time. I hope my time here will be as rewarding for all of you as it will be for me.—–WHC Riler

Wicked Good

Good afternoon, Fabfolks! I hope you’re all having a lovely Saturday today. It’s so bright and sunny here today I’m just soaking it in with a big ‘ol smile.  Wicked is obviously gearing up for the warm days ahead with their group gifts too.

Wicked Good

This is the ‘Arya’ dress the April group gift. The dress comes with a HUD to change the color of the string tie and the buttons. I liked the all over single color but the HUD makes this cute little dress all the more versatile.

Wicked Good

On the ‘dark’ side of Wicked , the group gift is this great mini skirt, the ‘Ripley Leather Skirt’.  Just a touch of rebel with all the zips and the big buckle. I paired it with the ‘Lindsey Wrap Top’ from Wicked’s Sale room. The Lindsey top comes in ten colors so you’re sure to find one that you love.

A Slice of Cherry Cake

Cherry Cake Hunt 1

Hi again Fab Free’rs! It’s been a while since I’ve participated in a big hunt, and something about the Cherry Cake Hunt was irresistible. Maybe it was the idea of cherries or cake… probably the cake! :P As you might imagine the hunt is full of cute cherry and cupcake themed goodies. The Cherry Cake Hunt is a 1 linden hunt, so each hunt prize is just 1 linden.

I picked out a handful of my favorites from the hunt, starting with this fringed cropped tank top from Emporium. The top is full mesh and comes in standard sizes with a matching alpha. Next, I just can not get enough of these glasses from Tabou Irresistible. The glasses come in two versions, one with the cupcake graphic shown, and the other pair has a sexy lips graphic. I thought these “Lennon” style glasses were perfect with the fringed top! Continuing with the cute cupcakes, Le Forme‘s CCH prize is this evil cute cupcake collar. Like the glasses, this prize also has a second version. The other collar has a charm that says “Basic  Bitch” instead of this creepy kawaii cupcake.

As I mentioned before, each of these CCH prizes are just 1 linden. At such a great price, there were many great gifts on this hunt. I put together one more quick look to show you using just two of the CCH prizes.

Cherry Cake Hunt 2

So this pajama set with the teal top and matching cupcake print boy-shorts from Aphrodisiac were just too cute to pass up. The set includes regular system layers, as well as Omega and Slink Physique appliers. Finally, this hairstyle from Ayashi is super cute. There is something about pigtails that makes them perfect with pajamas. The cherries at the base of each pigtail add to the cuteness of this style. The hair comes in just the color shown, and includes a matching alpha.

Here are the details, Happy Hunting!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Easter Hunt i lunaGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, April 7.

The Happy Easter Hunt in Luna is on top of our list today. This hunt spreads over a bunch of shops in the sim and features over twenty prizes. If you’re not tired of Easter yet… be sure to check it out.

The Sn@tch hunt at The Free Dove is one of three currently going on there, so you’ll definitely want to pay a visit. If you’ve never been, everything is, well… free.

Then take some time to peruse all the other hunts going on right now. There is a whole new pack of April hunts that just recently got started. It’s a great time to be a hunter.

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!
