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.

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.

A Girl and Her Bird

A Girl and Her Bird

It’s Saturday! And that means 30L specials abound… but I also have a special freebie for you today and a 1L goodie as well to round out a roleplay look that you won’t want to miss out on.

I stopped by Torvis Weapons today and discovered this beautiful red silk called Vidina on special for 30L. It includes the fitmesh camisk which you also get in Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink fits plus the gold bracelets, gold belt and a gold collar (collar not shown). For 30L, if you are an avid roleplayer, this is a steal!

Every archer needs a bow, and I found a very nice realistic one on the Marketplace for only 1L. It has both a scripted and nonscripted version in the box so you can save on scripts if you roleplay in a “write only” area, or if you roleplay in an area where GM weapons are used, simply use the GM version of the weapon. This “Deathrays’ simple bow” makes a nice prop and is easy to use. It was only 1L on the Marketplace!

If you are a photographer in Second Life, you might also want to stop by Lorien today and pick up the 10 pack of “Naughty Girl” poses that are out. I am showing you one from the pack that you can get today for just 30L. These are very nicely done and for only 30L that’s just 3L per pose!

A Girl and Her Bird 2

The last item I have to show you today is very special indeed. It’s nice to have a shoulder pet in rp, but realistic ones can be very expensive. Grizzly Creek currently has two on the marketplace that are FREE and fully functional with beautiful animations and movement.

I’m showing you the Cutthroat Finch but there is another beautiful bird you can pick up for FREE if you check out their store, as well as many other high quality pets for regular price. You might find yourself quite addicted to these gorgeous babies! This particular pet can be rezzed or worn, and is only 3 prim when rezzed! The shoulder pet itself is a low lag 6 scripts.

There are three alpha layers included: one for the top, one for the skirt and one for both pieces. I just love it when designers make a multi – piece outfit so darn versatile!

Dreamcatcher

“Are you sure that we are awake? It seems to me that yet we sleep, we dream.” – William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream

And you’ll feel like a dream wearing these gifts…

Queen 2

My sheer overlay corset called Dreamcatcher which comes with a body glitter tattoo layer inside the box is by Firefly and was a 1L gift as part of the Women’s Stuff Hunt. It was a bit tricky to get to show this one off to you, as it is definitely sheer… but I so wanted to show it to you as it is simply stunning.

This beautiful piece would make lovely lingerie, or perhaps a silk for a flowery nymph in a fantasy setting. The short camisk ends at the top of the thighs and is mesh in all the standard sizes. The full body tattoo tattoo comes in system layers as well as appliers for the Maitreya body. There is also an applier for tiny panties if you wish.

Queen 1

My jewelry is fit for any queen or nymph as well and is a group gift from Finesmith. It was given out by the creator a couple of days ago in commemoration of International Women’s Day. This gift is FREE with your group membership and includes the crown, septum ring, and a pair of matching hoop earrings (not shown), just look in the group notices, which will be there for about 10 more days. The group is 150L to join, but Finesmith is generous with gifts, and they are always as stunning as this, so it makes it well worth the fee to join the group.

Goddess on the mountain top…..

Hello again, my FabFree Folks! I have returned from a quick holiday all rested and refreshed and ready to get back on the grid!

Goddess on the mountain top

I got back just in time to jump into the latest round of March hunts starting off with my favorite -> The Twisted Hunt. The Spring theme is “Odyssey” and the colors are black and gold. I started my quest with Roped Passion’s and the mini side hunt that starts there.  Roped Passion’s main hunt gift are the winged sandals I’m wearing. The prize contains both a male and a female version for SLink flat feet and for Maitreya feet. They are just the appetizer for the feast of prizes to come in the side hunt.

Once you find the sandals in their spinning cube, go to the treasure chest and receive your HUD for the “Wind orbs” side hunt. The HUD will take you to the crypt with it’s nine doors, each containing a well hidden orb with a prize. Once you’ve found all nine, click the big table in the center of the crypt and it will teleport you to one last room with three more un hidden prizes.

Goddess on the mountain top

Anachon has joined Roped Passion’s in placing gifts in the crypt for the mini hunt and that is where you’ll find the rest of my “Hermes” outfit. Anachon has supplied the gorgeous “Homeward Star Chiton” while Roped Passion’s designed the staff and the head dress.  Anachron is also the designer for my “Compass necklace.” Which, by the way is the shape of the HUD for the side hunt. The Dark Fae has also placed prizes (not shown here) in the orbs for hunters.

The Twisted Hunt: Odyssey runs until March 31st so get your hunt on… twisted style!

Twi’lek Pru

Twi'lek Pru Hello Fab Free, it’s mid-week, and the weekend is near! For those of you that read the blog often or even recently, you’re already aware of my love of Star Wars. Needless to say the current round of The Fantasy Gacha Carnival has me going gaga, so much so that my first post featuring items from the event was just not enough. If you are unfamiliar with Star Wars and the characters, the above photo shows Pru dressed as a Twi’lek slave. Twi’leks are one of the many humanoid races in the Star Wars universe, and a favorite of mine.

DeviousMind out-did themselves in my opinion with their slave silks gacha at The Fantasy Gacha Carnival. These silks come in a wide array of colors and there are size options for default avatars, the Maitreya Lara body, Slink Physique, and Slink Hourglass. These gorgeous silks include all parts shown, the arm and leg cuffs, pasties, dancer silks, and chest piece. Additionally, there are rare sets that include a color change hud and exclusive color options. The headpiece is also one of the rare gacha prizes, and it includes a color change hud so you can easily match the Lekku to your skin. The DeviousMind gacha is just 75 lindens per play. I love that you can score the full silks set at The Fantasy Gacha Carnival with just a single play. This set could easily be worn in other fantasy role play genre’s as well.
Twi'lek Pru CloseI know you’ve seen this gorgeous group gift skin from Lumae on the blog previously in Glimmer’s post here, I just couldn’t help showing it again. Not only is this full skin lovely on, it’s perfect for helping me create this Twi’lek look. Just a reminder, this group gift from Lumae is FREE to all group members. In this generous gift, you’ll get the system skin, as well as all available appliers and options. Currently, the Lumae group is FREE to join as well. So if you haven’t picked it up yet, you’ll want to grab this skin while you can!

I sincerely hope you enjoy this fun fantasy look as much as I do! Here are the details.

Sweet & Sour Desert Flower

Sweet and Sour Desert Flower 1

Some days you just feel like dancing. And if a new outfit and new hair isn’t a reason for dancing, I don’t know what is!

Firefly is participating in the Mars Meets Venus on Earth Hunt (which ends January 23rd) and for only 1L you can pick up this beautiful Arabian inspired full outfit called Sweet&Sour for only 1L if you find the planet at their main-store location. The skirt is mesh in all the standard sizes and has a terrific eclectic design that really catches the eye. The outfit includes shoes for system feet (no special feet required) as well as a sculpty sash (it’s modifiable for a perfect fit), resizable armlets, and the tattoo bindi for your forehead. The top comes in a system layer only, but it’s well worth rocking your system body for this highly detailed gem.

Sweet and Sour Desert Flower 2

If you’re looking for a new hair-do, be sure to stop by Blues. Hair and pick up the latest group gift. This style called Eline (which is the Happy 2016 New Year gift) is FREE to group members for your small group join fee of 99L. There are a couple of past group gifts still out and more to come in the future, and these are all full fat packs so you’ll get your Linden worth in one stop at the store by joining the group!

Christmas Kisses

♫ I saw Mommy kissing Santa Clause ♪

♪ Underneath the mistletoe last night ♫

Christmas Kisses

And who wouldn’t want a kiss if you’re wearing something like this super smexy get up I found on the “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Hunt“? This nifty little Santa inspired apron dress is from Vips Creations. The “I Love Sexy Christmas” outfit comes with a HUD to change the color and textures of the dress to one of six choices, plus the prize includes jewelry, shoes for SLink High Feet, a red thong and a cute little clutch. The back of the dress is just a little… cheeky so you better be feelin’ sassy if you’re going to wear it out and about. One thing about Vips… there are a TON of Hunts and Christmas Freebies all over the store!

Christmas Kisses

The perfect festive boots I’ve got on are the “Santa Baby” boots from Lindy Modern & Retro shoes, also for the I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Hunt. The boots come with an alpha layer so they fit all feet just right.

The big day is coming up quick and many of our Christmas hunts will be ending soon. The “I Saw….” Hunt will run until December 31st so you don’t have much longer to get ready for that mistletoe smooching.

Sweet Lies on the Throne

Sweet Lies on the Throne 1

“War was easier than daughters.” [Ned Stark – Game of Thrones]

Daffy’s GadgetMania has decided to participate in the Get To Know Us Hunt and is generously serving up three FREE glorious prizes… this throne called Gift 2-DS-666 Gothic/Gorean Throne being one of the three. It is fit for a king… or a Queen… or a man home from war with too many daughters who needs to relax a little. It has tons of poses built into the main seat and on the sides as well (on the pillows) and against the arms and the entire kit and kaboodle is only 13 prim. For a huge throne this detailed, that’s impressive! And less stressful for Ned Stark than war OR daughters!

Now, prewarning… these three hunt prizes by Daffy’s GadgetMania are FREE… but the hunt is not for the faint of heart. The store is adult themed in a bit of a horror type manner. The hunt itself is based on a series of clues within the store and is a set of steps before the prize reveals itself. If haunted houses or disturbing images are too much for you, this store’s hunt is not for you (I did the rest of the stores on this mini hunt and they were not gruesome, only this one). The prize is worth it, but I don’t want anyone to say “why didn’t you warn me about the blood?!” Well… aren’t many thrones won by a sword, spear, and blood? (At least in Game of Thrones, right?)

Sweet Lies on the Throne 2

“Life is not a song, Sweetling. You may learn that one day to your sorrow.” [Littlefinger to Sansa Stark – Game of Thrones]

You may not decide to sing a song in this lovely toga style dress called Lucrecia Green by Sweet Lies (which comes in the style shown or in a more risky adult style that shows much much more skin) but you’ll look daring and beautiful rather in song or in sorrow while wearing it — whether it be next to the throne or sitting on it.  Better yet, this fabulous get up comes with jewelry included (a necklace, armlets, and anklets) and is FREE by slapping the Midnight Mania board at Sweet Lies. The board requires group membership but that too is FREE, fear not and cry not!

The dress is mesh, comes in all the standard mesh sizes and is perfect for roleplay. The jewelry comes in both scripted and unscripted versions for re-sizing and the scripted versions have an option to remove the script once you are done to save on lag. It’s a sweet deal from Sweet Lies!

Sweet Lies on the Throne 3

“Freedom means making your own choices.” [Daenerys – Game of Thrones]

… and I choose to sit on the throne! At least briefly. And in this lovely little number called Etel by Sweet Lies, which is another FREE offering currently up on the Midnight Mania Boards. Again, you’ll need the group (FREE join) to slap the board, but this Mesh outfit in all the standard sizes with all its included accessories is worth the group space and the time to slap the board. Don’t miss out!

There are six total Midnight Mania boards up if neither of these outfits catch your fancy! Be sure to see if you like any of the others available! I managed to snag and close down 4, but am only showing 2 here. There is also one up for guys!

Sweet Lies on the Throne 4

“You could rattle the stars. You could do anything, if only you dared. And deep down you know it, too. That’s what scares you most.” [Elena – Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas.]

If you are looking for something more queenly, more stately, more fierce… I have just the look for you. In this attire any woman could rattle the stars.

Sweet Lies currently has a gorgeous array of 30L gachas available in-store. I found two that were simply my favorite and paired them together to get this look. The dress is called Tauriel and the detailing is amazing (can you believe this is one of the commons? Imagine the rares!) and for 30L a spin you are getting an amazing deal. These dresses are also fitmesh (swoons).

I paired the dress with a 30L spin on the Savage Spring Armor & Crown Gacha and was granted a Rusty Gold which was a perfect match for my look. For just 30L you get both the pauldrons AND the matching crown in the box (woot! woot!) and you don’t have to spin multiple times to try to match the two like with many gachas. So I simply adored this gacha and this outfit pairing! A deal for sure!
