What? You’ve NEVER gone out hunting? 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!

Dreaming of Russia

Snapshot_006 Good evening Fabulous readers! I wanted to start off tonight by sending out a big thank you to Izzy Christenson for sending me the smoke and pink hoodie Alchemy Doges!  She had been seeing my lonely Cream bulldog in my posts and thought he might like some company.  I think she was right – he does look much happier now lol {hugs Izzy}!

A new round of Shiny Shabby opened up on the 20th with a super fun Russian theme.  I have been, and been back a gazillion times for purchases from different designers across the grid.  I imagine I’ll revisit again too lol because I have no control.  Anyways…  at the landing point you will find a new free group gift by LpD for Shiny Shabby inworld members (free to join).  This gift is the super sweet mesh Petunia Top by LpD that I am wearing.

Many of the decorative items you see in my little display such as the Khokhloma Cabinet, Khokhloma Chair, Yellow Trolly Table, Sweet Apples, Matrioshkas, Colorful Hanging Lamps and the Minature Russian Cathedral (RARE) are from the Ionic From Russia With Love Gacha Set at Shiny Shabby which is just 60L per play.

Tossing in a little more freeness to this collection, you can find the Casita Dreamer Sign with the dangling gold stars and [free bird] Cast Iron Fountain Wall Décor as free Wayward Hunt prizes at their respective inworld shop locations.

The Mermaid

The Mermaid

Hi there Fab Free! I had so much fun styling this look that I’m just going to get right to it and tell you all about it. This “Ocean” toned skin from PixyStix is truly gorgeous on, I love looking at it. It also kind of reminds me of blue raspberry kool-aid, which is awesome! This fantasy skin is the FREE Hunt for Your Inner Slut prize at PixyStix. As always, Pixy was very generous with this gift, included with this skin are appliers for just about everything out there. Seriously, tons of appliers.

I’ve always liked the idea of mixing genres and styles to create a more unique look. I love mixing vintage and modern styles for example. This time I went with the fantasy look of the skin from PixyStix and added some modern clothing from Apple May Designs, and the jewelry is somewhere in between. AMD is participating in the Recolors of Spring Hunt. The hunt is a dollarbie hunt and there are several items in the AMD store. This silver metallic bandeau style top and matching skirt set is just one of the four total gifts for women. There are also two hunt prizes for the men. For just one linden this outfit is a steal! You can also find this dress in gold, and I am happy to tell you that this RSH prize includes several appliers, or it can be worn on regular system layers. Happy Hunting!

Lastly, what modern mermaid would be complete without a kick-butt mani/pedi? Today is the last day of the current round of The Dressing Room Fusion. ZOZ has a set pretty shiny nails meant for Slink hands/feet in 3 colors for just 70 lindens per color. These are specifically meant to show off the cool feature of the most recent slink update, you can put a different nail pattern on each individual nail. Can’t make it out to TDRF in time? Not to worry, the sets will be available at the ZOZ main store at full price after TDRF ends.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

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

Nerdy Girl

Nerdy Girl

Hello Fab Free! I hope we all made it through Monday with little if any trauma. Recently the shop Nerdy Girl reopened and they now have out the cutest outfit out as a FREE group gift. The outfit from Nerdy Girl consists of a mesh crop-top and a matching floral mesh skirt. The floral pattern on the skirt is very vibrant and feminine, and I love the colors. The Nerdy Girl group is FREE to join as well, so no reason to miss out on this great gift!

To compliment my new outfit, I picked up a sparkly teal clutch by Ashmoot. This little gem is currently a FREE group gift at the Eden of Virtual Arts event. You’ll need to join the FREE EVA group and wear that tag to get the gift. This great little bag could easily go with a formal look, or even business attire.

Also, I could not resist sneaking in a few more Wayward Hunt goodies. I know you’ve seen a lot of Wayward stuff on the blog lately, but it can’t be helped. The Wayward Hunt items are not only FREE but awesome. We can’t not share them with you!

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!
