Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Biker Hunt 2Good Morning Fabulous Fans! It looks to be another excellent weekend for getting out and around Second Life to do some hunting. It’s really the best way to discover some new stores you haven’t heard of before, find some new places in Second Life, AND come away with lots of stuff to boot.

Speaking of boots… two hunts where you might find some are the Biker Hunt and the Medieval Fantasy Hunt. Both of those titles say “boots” to me, though I haven’t actually browsed through the prize pics. Seriously… I really do enjoy a good set of boots. They’re way better than, oh, say… loafers.

So check out all the hunts below. I’m sure there is one that will appeal to you.

Both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.

The Biker Hunt, Femboy, Evil Bunny, Get to know us, Hunt for Your Inner Slut, and Medieval Fantasy Hunt are all hunts that are returning for more fun. Check ’em out… you won’t be sorry, and neither will your bulging inventory.

This month sees the men of Second Life getting some much needed love. The Men Only Hunt is in full swing and with forty six stops it’s proving to be a great hunt for filling out the wardrobe.  I’ve chosen this black sweater and shirt one piece combination from Fe Style today. The ‘Rom Sweater’ comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL and features two handy alpha layers. One for the sweater itself and one for the top, pants and shoes.   My stylish hat is also a hunt prize. This is the Jones hat from Flow. The hat is fully modifiable for a perfect fit. The new ink you see here is from Speakeasy. The ‘Conjuring’ Tattoo comes in both a fresh and a faded ink version on the system tattoo layer. The prize also includes appliers for The Mesh Project, Omega, SLink  Body and SLink hands.

Last but not least, my appropriately dramatic pose comes from the bar stool “Cold One” from !Bang.  The stool has two poses and has a 9 land impact. It is very nicely built and would look rather stylish in nearly anyone’s abode.

The Men Only Hunt runs until April 30th. Don’t miss it.

I remain most sincerely yours,

Gabriel St. James

Get Funky

Get Funky

The Men Only Hunt has proven lucrative. This morning I picked up these FREE Funky Jeans by AR2 Style, which is their contribution to the hunt. No, I’m not trying to insult the style… that’s the name of the Jeans. These excellent quality mesh jeans come in all the standard mesh sizes and the texture is spot on. They are definitely worth picking up.

I also discovered that several pose stores are giving gifts as part of the hunt. Dark Magic Poses is a new-to-me pose store, and there are not necessarily an abundance of quality men’s poses available on the grid. I was really pleased with their FREE hunt gift — this Justin Pose pack. I’m showing you Justin 02 to give you an idea. There are three top quality poses in the FREE gift if you hunt down the prim beer.

I also passed up my usual tattoo this morning in place of this one by Facade that caught my eye. It too is a FREE hunt gift as part of the Men Only Hunt and is called Befallen Stars. As part of this generous gift you will get a system layer tattoo as well as appliers for Omega, Slink, TMP, Adam, and Signature. I applied it easily to my Slink mesh body.

Happy Hunting!

Your Friday Hunt Report

FAME & FORTUNE HUNT BASEGood Morning Fabulous Fans! I’m loving this springtime weather. I hope it’s as nice where you are too. If it’s not, you can always stay indoors, logged into Second Life with some hot tea on your desk, and do some hunting.

There are some fun hunts going on right now. The Fame & Fortune Hunt just started today, as did the ever popular Hunt for Your Inner Slut (now in its fourteenth edition). And don’t forget all the free shoes and hair and such at The Free Dove store hunts going on all month.

If those don’t appeal to you, there is lots of other hunt goodness going on as well. Click the names below until you find the one that’s perfect for your sense of style.

Melusine & Nephty

Melusine & Nephty

I ran across a sweet little spring event today called the “Spring is Here Gacha Fair & Event.” It runs until April 19 and there are about 20 designers participating. Almost every booth has a gift set out priced at 1 to 3L. I picked up one gift in particular from what I think will be an up and coming designer from the quality of this multi-applier tattoo! This Nephtys Tattoo by Pin*Up is an upper body tattoo in layers for Maitreya or Omega and comes in 3 different opacities (light, medium, and dark).

I also want to mention my skin… yes I went red today! Now that the crowds are cleared, and before it is too late… I stopped by Genre and picked up Lumae’s special edition Eirtae – T3 – Shell // Melusine skin. For just 100L you get every applier imaginable as well as both a plain and freckled version at Genre for a limited time. It will disappear soon, so if you love this skin as much as I do, act fast!

Red Haze

Red Haze

Looking for something a little wild and out of the ordinary? The [new.monday] Cart at the Cart Wash Sale is definitely for you! This cart features an assortment of tattoos and face paints by our very own Juli of FabFree for the glorious and affordable price of just 10L, as well as some fabulous Slink nail appliers.

I’m showing you the Red Haze face paint in the photo above, along with a promotional Head Band gift from Sweet Lies that I tugged off the Marketplace for just 15L! I loved the two together… they have a wild feel that is terrific for roleplay and made me feel earthy and free.

But the [new.monday] cart also features some whimsical and lovely styles that you should check out if this sort of in-your-face tribal look is not your style! Don’t miss out though… the Cart Wash Sale ends at the end of the day today, March 30th!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Marketplace HuntGood morning fabulous friends! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, March 29.

The rather unique Marketplace Hunt has been very popular of late. In this hunt you don’t have to run around in-world. All the prizes are on the marketplace. All you need do is go from one marketplace store to the next and look for the specially marked items. It’s pretty cool.

If you’re still in bunny/egg mode, there are a few Easter hunts still on the grid, but don’t delay because these will be ending very soon.

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!

What’s New Pussy Cat

Entice An Lar

Hello Fab Free! I hope everyone has been enjoying the weekend! As I’m sure you’ve noticed it’s Cart Sale time again at The Wash. I love shopping The Cart Sale because there is always such a wide range of designers participating; I know I’ll find new-to-me things and fantastically inexpensive items from designers I already know and love.

The sexy sassy top and leggings shown above are a Cart Sale outfit from Entice. This set is just 10 lindens for the duration of the Cart Sale. I love this for a fun way to look really put together and still be casual. The top is fully mesh and can of course be worn separately from the red and black zebra print leggings. This is also great example of when and how to mix patterns in an outfit. These leggings come in classic system layers and an applier hud. The easy to use all in one hud has appliers for Slink, Omega, Belleza, and Maitreya compatible bodies.

Each of the 4 poses I used to help me show off this playful edgy outfit make up the gift from An Lar Poses at the current round of the Liaison Collaborative. There are two unique poses, both with a “mirrored” version. This gift from An Lar Poses is to help celebrate the 3rd anniversary of Liaison Collaborative. There’s no need to join a group, just stop by the event and pick up these FREE static standing poses from An Lar.

Entice Tantalum

Also at the Entice Cart at the Cart Sale, you’ll find this cute manicure set. The set has appliers for Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, and Omega compatible nails. The manicure set is just 10 lindens and it has 6 color options each with a cute stylized black cat. I like how the addition of the cat on the nails gives a fun animal theme to the outfit.

Continuing with that thought, the March group gift from Tantalum is this detailed, unique collar/choker. I love the lock and key charm, and the sort of zipper look to this choker style necklace. This pretty piece of jewelry can be re-sized, re-colored, and otherwise adjusted via a touch menu. The Tantalum group is also FREE to join, making this collar completely FREE!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Tattoo’d Pin-Up Designer Circle Style

DC5 Gifts
I have to say, Calle really got me with this corseted one-piece by Ashmoot. Earlier this week Calle clued me in to the fantastic 5th Anniversary of Designer Circle. To celebrate their 5th year running, the participants in this round of Designer Circle have placed out a FREE gift! The 5th Anniversary round of Designer Circle ends on 19th, so don’t wait.

This cute corseted black and gold one-piece is the FREE Designer Circle 5th Anniversary gift from Ashmoot that Calle told me she thought I’d like, and she was absolutely right! I truly am a sucker for the pin-up style. This flirty gift comes in classic system layers, and appliers for most mesh bodies. In addition there are little mesh bows and frills to add a little extra dimension and cuteness.

My personal pin-up style always includes tattoos. Queen of Ink put out this really beautiful traditional style full-body tattoo as their FREE gift at Designer Circle. Queen of Ink is a new-to-me shop and I really like what I see in this gift. The freebie includes classic system tattoo layers an Omega applier, as well as body appliers for most major mesh bodies. If you enjoy tattoos the way I do, you’ll want to pick this one up!

Indulge Temptation is also participating in this 5th Anniversary round of Designer Circle. Their FREE gift is this lovely set of rose bangles. There are 3 variations, each with 3 roses. Also included is a color-change/re-size hud that allows you to adjust the size of the bangles, the color of the metal, and the color of the roses. These super pretty bracelets would look great with just about anything, casual or dressy.

Finally, the pose shown with the star floating up from Pru’s palm is also a FREE Designer Circle 5th Anniversary gift from Icons of Style. When I saw this I knew I had to share it. The pose and the bright little star make me think of those vintage pin-up post cards you still see from time to time. Yet another too cute to pass up gift!

Here are the details, Enjoy!
