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?

Monochromatic

Monochrome Hi there Fab Free’rs! As always I hope everyone is well in their Second Lives, First Lives, and all Lives. I’m doing pretty good myself, I’m happy to say. For this post I have several FREE or inexpensive gifts to share with you, and I was clearly inspired by how they all came together. I really have no idea what terminology to use to describe this look. The terms modern, industrial, gothic, all come to mind. Whatever you choose to call it, I hope you like it.

First, let’s talk about all this bold metallic looking jewelry by Alter. I have to say this set is really unique, in a good way, definitely what you would call a statement set. This full set including earrings, bracelets, and necklace come together as a FREE gift available at the July round of SWANK. Each piece is scripted to be sized up or down via touch menu. While the set clearly goes together, each piece is different enough to stand alone.
Alter Mana Also among the several gifts at SWANK is this dollarbie nail applier set from IP Nails. Continuing with the metallic theme, this really pretty manicure comes in the single style shown, a soft satin grey with a gold tip. Included in this gift are appliers for Maitreya nails, Omega compatible nails, and Slink nails. Also  I want to point out that the single applier did color both my fingernails and my toenails, at least the Maitreya applier did. I would definitely wear this mani/pedi with everything, casual attire, formal attire, it will look good with any outfit.
Free Mana Saving what is in my opinion the best for last, Essences recently sent out this stunning pale skin as a FREE subscriber gift. You read that right, no group needed, just join the subscriber. I’ve always been a sucker for pretty red lips, and the makeup on this gift version of the Essences Mana skin slays. Included in this beautiful FREEbie is a full set of system skins, you get this gorgeous face in a full system layer skin with brow and cleavage options. That means classic avatars can definitely take advantage of this gift. Also included in the gift is a Lelutka head applier. Mesh body appliers can be purchased separately at the Essences main store.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Eclectic Essences at Kustom9

Gacha Kustom9 Hello Fab Free’rs I hope you’re doing well. It’s been a minute since I did some gacha-ing and there are several cute gachas waiting to be played at the current round of Kustom9. You know I can’t resist skin gachas, and especially not when the Essences gacha is set at 75 lindens per play. Also, ieQED has some sweet summer bangles at just 29 lindens per play.  These gachas are really just two of many but they caught my attention first! haha

This beautiful skin is one of the 12 Arwen gacha prizes from Essences at Kustom9. These gachas include Lelutka head applier only. Matching body appliers can be found for sale at the Essences main store. Of the 12 total versions in various skin tones, 10 commons and 2 rares. Pru is wearing the Arwen #9 which is one of the common prizes in the dark01 tone. I personally rarely wear the darker tones, but when I tried this one on, it was just too pretty! It really is a beautiful skin. It also looks lighter or darker depending on your windlight settings, which really just makes me like it even more. At just 75 lindens per play, if you’re a Lelutka head wearer, you need this skin or one of the other equally beautiful versions in your inventory!

I was so excited when I saw that ieQED had a gacha at this round of Kustom9. These bangles are so cute, and are the type of jewelry you could wear with anything. The ieQED gacha is just 29 lindens per play. The rare gets you a color change hud, I wasn’t so lucky, but I’m thrilled with the three bangles I did get. How cute is that pineapple?! Truly I feel like these little “eclectic” bracelets capture the fun of summer perfectly. There are 10 total bangles, and the rare hud will give you the option of picking between 5 metal tones and 6 gem colors.

So you can get a good look a the other Essences and ieQED gacha prizes at Kustom9, I’ve included a copy of the gacha keys below. Good Luck!

Lucia

Snapshot_003
Hi there FabFree! Before I head off for the night, I wanted to pop by and let you know about a free Catwa Skin Applier that is available on the Marketplace!  For those of you with a Catwa Mesh Head, Pumec is offering their Lucia skin priced at 0L.  I am not sure how long this offer will be valid, but it’s quite pretty – so pick it up before it’s too late.

I am wearing the free PUMEC Lucia Gift Skin on my Catwa Candy Head, although it will work on any Catwa Head.  In the folder you will find the Catwa Head Applier with three versions of eyebrows (brown, black, none), matching body appliers for Slink, Maitreya and Belleza as well as Freckle option and a HUD for mesh body parts.  A system skin is even included for those still using the basic body.

Art Deco Darling

Tuesday
I feel a little like a Showgirl in these fabulous group gifts from Swallow and SlackGirl, and I’m perfectly fine with that! It’s been a while since I showed some pretty makeup and accessories, so these group gifts are just the thing. It’s extra fun that they all happen to look so lovely together!

SlackGirl is one of my favorite stores for makeup in Second Life. There seem to always be group gifts as well, which certainly doesn’t hurt. This gorgeous lipstick is part of the huge Clarice set available FREE to all SlackGirl group members. This particular gift is for the Catwa head-wearers only. The gift includes 3 huds with 8 lipstick shades each. I really like the high shine of these lipsticks, it’s a nice departure from the matte lipsticks you see a lot. Also at SlackGirl, along with many other gifts, are these pretty little eye jewels. These FREE group gift eye jewels can be worn with mesh or classic avatars. The gift includes a left and right attachment, and a hud that allows you to adjust the jewel color, and the metal color. The SlackGirl group has a one time join fee of 100 lindens, however I’m certain you won’t be disappointed, there are several group gifts still available including the ones I’ve shared here.

I will admit, I don’t often wear earrings in Second Life, but I think these are beautiful! These art deco looking earrings are one of several FREE group gifts out at Swallow. These beautiful earrings include a color change hud as well, and can be resized using the hud. I’m sure you’ve been wondering about the pretty butterflies floating around my hair! These are another FREE group gift at Swallow. This butterfly headpiece comes in several colors and can be sized via touch menu, I of course chose this orange color because it reminds me of the Monarch butterflies I love. At the original size this accessory is more of a hat, but I used the resize scripts and scaled mine down to look more like a fancy fascinator. The Swallow group also has a one time join fee of just 30 lindens. This is a steal when you consider the lovely group gifts available!

Finally, if you like the pretty face Pru has on with the red eyeliner that goes so well with the lipstick from SlackGirl, it’s another of the Corrie gacha appliers Essences has available for just 75 lindens per play at The Liaison Collaborative ! There’s more info about this head applier in my previous post here.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

It’s Called Vitiligo

Love Your Skin

Happy July 4th to all who celebrate! I’m always excited to share new freebies with my Fab Free family, however I’m extra excited about the most recent subscriber gift from E. Vary. I’ve also come across some fun patriotic items from #bubbles and KC Couture to help get into the spirit of the day while still looking fabulous!Love Your Skin 2I have been so eager to show this gorgeous “Winnie” skin from E. Vary since I found out about it! For those of you who aren’t sure what this skin is about, the skin condition is called Vitiligo which causes skin cells to lose their pigmentation creating these random patches of pigment-less skin. The name “Winnie” is inspired by the real life model Winnie Harlow whom is a high fashion model with Vitiligo. The purpose of this truly striking skin is to raise awareness of the condition and promote a positive image. You’ll find this FREE subscriber gift at the E. Vary main location. Just join the subscriber, if you haven’t already, then click the vendor photo. In the package you’ll find the Winnie skin in 3 tones. There is a system skin layer in each tone, 2 hair base options, 4 shapes, an Omega applier for Catwa, Slink, Eve, and other Omega compatible heads, as well as an Omega body applier in each skin-tone. Don’t miss out on this amazing FREE gift from E. Vary!

Now I couldn’t very well let the 4th of July pass by without a fun patriotic look. This super cute wrap top is on sale for a limited time at #bubbles for just 49 lindens. If the U.S. flag doesn’t do it for ya, not to worry, there’s are solid red, white, or blue options available as well! Each version of this cute mesh top includes standard mesh sizes, fit mesh,  as well as fit sizes for Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink bodies. I think this top from #bubbles is the perfect style top for a fun day in the sun on this summer holiday.

To match my cute top from #bubbles I continued with my patriotic theme and added these detailed wedge sandals from KC Couture. After all, how often do you get to pull off red white and blue?! These FREE gift shoes are available just outside the KC Couture main store, at the landing point. You can’t miss the giant vendor board, you’ll also see a cool pair of men’s chucks available.  To get these too cute shoes, you’ll need to join the KC Couture group, which is FREE to join. Once wearing your tag, just click the vendor and the shoes are yours. The package includes a Maitreya fit, Slink fit, Eve Fit, Belleza fit, and TMP fit shoes. I really cannot express how cute these shoes are on, not to mention it’s not often I find a FREE shoe gift with all  these fit options!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

SunlightHappy weekend Fab Free! I hope everyone is enjoyed the weekend. Normally I’d be sad it was Monday, but I have great news to share! WoW Skins has opened up their VIP Group so that it is FREE to join from now until July 7th. There’s also a big sale going on until July 15th. The best part is that with your WoW Skins VIP tag you can pick up a box stuffed with all the previous group gift skins, yes all of them!

I picked up the June group gift while I was there, and was excited to find the gift includes an omega applier that worked for my Catwa head and my Maitreya body at the same time. You will need to attach both appropriate Omega relay huds however. Hurry over to WoW Skins and don’t miss out on this opportunity to score some really pretty FREE skins.

Water Nymph

Water Nymph
Hi There Fab Free I’ve got a Fabulous find to share with you on this Friday. One of the best things about Fridays in Second Life? Why Fifty Linden Fridays, of course! There are lots of great finds every Friday for just 50 lindens. This Friday has some awesome finds, one of which is this stunningly exotic skin from Plastik. You’ll actually find two Fifty Linden Friday sets at Plastik for 50 lindens each today only. One is an outfit set that includes 2 tops and a skirt. While the outfit is beautiful, I was so taken with the Special Edition skin that I just had to share it with you. This FLF offer is a pack that includes this amazing skin in a male and female version along with every applier Plastik makes for their skins, and of course classic system layers. You’ll also find mesh eyes, makeup layers, and nail appliers for both Slink and Maitreya in the package. I felt like a gorgeous creature in this highly detailed skin, and of course, since it’s summer I wanted to be near the water. Remember, this awesome deal is available today only for Fifty Linden Fridy, run! hehe I also included a copy of the vendor photo for the special FLF skin below so you can see both versions, there’s also a list of all appliers included.

For a little extra detail, I also included this beautiful FREE flower crown I found at Color Me Project from Indulge Temptation. I was hoping to play up the fantasy aspect of the skin from Plastik, and I think this detailed accessory did the job perfectly! This FREE gift is available at the Color Me Project landing point. You’ll need to join the Color Me Project group, which is FREE to Join. With this fabulous gift from Indulge Temptation you’ll get a hud that allows you to size the crown and adjust the color of the metal parts only. Color Me Project’s current round ends July 5th, so don’t wait!

Little Yellow Bird

Little Yellow BirdHappy Weekend Fab Free! I first want to say thanks to those who read the blog and especially those who take the time to comment or message the Fab Free blog team in world with compliments, thanks, and well wishes. I got a pretty big compliment from a reader recently and it really made my week. So thank you! This really is a labor of love, and I’m honored to be part of the Fab Free team.

Mush Mush Mush! lol❤

Mush and gush aside, I’ve been so excited about all the FREE hair and skins I’ve been seeing on the blog and around the grid. Just recently Olive re-opened their in-world store and set up 3 Lucky Boards that are open to everyone. That’s right, no group needed at this time. This long soft wavy hairstyle called “Kelly” is one of the 3 FREE Lucky Board prizes. This cute mesh hairstyle from Olive comes in a blonde color pack with a “streaked” option, as well as a “boobies” fit. Though I am not usually a blonde in world, I actually really like this particular blonde pack because as you can see there are pink or what you could call strawberry blonde options that are more pink than red along with a wide range of pretty blonde colors. Love it! Little Yellow Bird CloseHow could you not smile wearing this sunny new skin from Stix? This “Canary” version of the Fauna skin is the most recent FREE group gift at Stix. She’s freaking adorable! As with most gifts from Stix, this one generously includes all sorts of appliers. There are appliers in this gift for stuff I’m not even aware of! lol The included appliers are Kemono Body, Soul Uni Ears, a HUD with appliers for Slink, Belleza, Maitreya, and Omega compatible bodies,  a TMP applier, and appliers for Catwa, Lelutka, Genesis, and Omega compatible heads. Along with a laundry list of appliers, I hope I didn’t leave any out,  this FREE gift of course includes classic system layers. You won’t be disappointed in this FREEbie. The Stix (PixyStix) group is also FREE to join at this time!

Here are the details, Enjoy!
