The Get Crabby Hunt!

Get Crabby Hunt

I’ve been having lots of fun this month blogging the Spoonful of Sugar Festival. You can see my past posts on this complex and huge event here and here. Today I’m introducing you to another aspect of this event. On top of the main event, they have a hunt going on, which takes place at Get Crabby Hunt Island. As you explore the Sim, the hunt object you are looking for is a crab! This is a paid hunt, and a group join fee is required to participate in it. The group costs 500L to join. Pictures of all the Get Crabby Hunt prizes are posted on their hunt web page HERE. You will see group joiners for the hunt group at Get Crabby Hunt Island. You can also pick up a crab plushie and crab hats as a group gift there as well if you decide to join the hunt group. Here is the link to the hunt group to join if you have trouble finding it. Again, be warned that the group costs 500L to join.

Note that 100% of the funds that are spent towards the Get Crabby Hunt are being donated to Doctors Without Borders, and the designers do not make any profits from this hunt. It’s very kind of the creators out there to make all those products and to put them up for a benefit. Sometimes we don’t recognize how hard creators work to give us gifts, but to go the extra mile to donate beautiful products to a fundraiser that gives back to society shows how incredible the creative community in Second Life is. Doctors Without Borders is an organization that provides medical care to people around the world as a result of war, conflicts, and other crises. The Spoonful of Sugar Festival donated over 100, 000 real-life American dollars from this event in the last 7 years, and I hope these donations can help those in need around the world this year too! The Get Crabby Hunt ends on September 18th, so if you plan to do this hunt make sure you get to it well before this date so you have time to find all the prizes.

I am showing two hunt prizes from the Get Crabby Hunt and another 10L find from the Spoonful of Sugar Festival today as featured items, so keep reading for all the details!

Do you Love to Mix & Match?

First off, the fabulous outfit I have on is an absolute must-have! This is the Get Crabby Hunt prize from MOoH!. This outfit includes a bikini top, a skirt and bikini bottoms (which are worn under my skirt). This is a versatile set because you can wear it as a bikini, a full outfit or separates. The outfit comes with a number of funky patterns you can apply to the separate parts via a colour change HUD, so mixing and matching is possible. Plain classic colours that are included in the hud are red, white, light violet, dark plum and pink. Pattern options include florals, skulls, a dragon pattern (shown here) and some other fun patterns. You can see the possibilities of mixing and matching the texture options in this outfit in the vendor photo below.

Sizes Included

  • Lara
  • Petite
  • Kupra
  • Reborn
  • Mounds

Melinda outfit

Pineapple, Bora Bora

The second hunt prize I am featuring is a wonderful painting of a pineapple made by Katherine Littlepaws, who owns Katharine Littlepaws Art Gallery. This painting is just fantastic- it looks so realistic, colourful and expressive! The background is fantastic with the collage elements the artist has included. This is a prize on the Get Crabby Hunt.

Katharine Littlepaws Art Gallery also has another painting on a special promotion for only 10 Lindens at their Spoonful of Sugar Festival booth. The get to the exact spot where you can grab the painting, go  here. The item on sale for this low price is the small colourful painting shown in my photo on top of the pineapple piece. Note that this smaller painting is not part of the hunt, so anyone can purchase it and no group is required to buy it for 10L. 100% of the proceeds spent on this painting are given to Doctors Without Borders.

Phew, that was a lot of information! Have fun, FabFree! I’m off to go get a tropical cocktail now. I deserve it after all that writing. 😉

Love is Love

Love is Love
“Love is Love”. That is definitely my mantra in life. I have never understood why people persecute or judge others for who they love. It’s so wrong. I am bisexual, so Pride has a special meaning for me. Sometimes people think Pride is just a fun parade filled with rainbows, but it’s really about the resilience and persecution all LGBTQ+ people have gone through throughout history and continue to today in order to fight for their rights. Plus, it’s about how important it is to celebrate LGBTQ+ people and identities! Happy Pride everyone! 🏳️‍🌈

More WomenStuff

I have more free prizes from the WomenStuff hunt to show. Read all the details about the hunt in my post here. Cre also blogged some goodies from the hunt here and here. You can grab the hunt hud at the WomenStuff hunt starting location here (group join fee is 50Ls to get the hunt hud, but the prizes are free for all at each location).

  • My short shorts are the free prize from NoNuts. They fit Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Kupra, eBODY Reborn & Curvy, Legacy, Tonic Fine, Minimizer & Curvy, Hourglass & Altamura.
  • The cute shoes are free at Adore Amore. They come in the pink colour only with little white flowers on them. They are sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Legacy, Tonic, Slink, & Ocasin.

You can also see a few more of the hunt prizes in my up-close shot below.

  • My eyeshadow, eyebrows, and lipstick are from a free HD makeup set from Noyaux. This set includes HD appliers for Lelutka Evolution and Lelutka EvoX.
  • The gold face paint on my forehead is from {Wren’s Nest}. They have 10 planet signs included in the free pack. I just liked the look of Mercury so I went with it. The set includes 10 separate tattoos for Leltuka EvoX, AdvX and BOM.

The hunt is on until June 30th, so go get your hunt on!

Love is Love III
Lastly, I have an awesome pride flag/wall banner to show you. Noveny has this awesome pride flag out as their latest group gift. Their group currently costs 30L to join. The “Love is Love” messaging with the yellow hearts on it inspired my post tonight!

Happy Pride, FabFree!

Beach Break

Coming Soon

Ah, time to take a brief rest after my long walk on the beach. I’ve been trying to get my exercise after a long winter cooped up indoors!

Goodbye, for now, micamee

I was saddened to read the news recently that micamee will be closing their in-world store until further notice. Until today, May 20th, they have a whopping 75% off all of their products! Very cheap finds there. I’m not showing a sale item today, but one of their free group gifts which will be disappearing when the store closes. The gift is this cute drink with rabbit ears on the top of the lid. It says “Sweetheart” on it, and it comes in 2 other colour and pattern options as well. There are 14 free gifts in the store to grab before it closes for good. Make sure you grab anything you want at the low prices too!

Geometry

My striking triangular maze earrings are a free gift at the Cheeky Wow! from Ari-Pari. You will find it in their booth at the event. The earrings include a colour hud.

Free Body Skins, Anyone?

If you are in need of some new free body skins, MILA has you covered on the Marketplace. They have a fatpack of their older skins in both appliers and BOM. When I wore the BOM versions of the skins, I was able to use the free neck fix from Velour which I blogged about here to blend my head skin. They are many tones, tummy options, and other features to this fatpack of free skins, so enjoy them!

Update: These free skins are also available for free at MILA’s mainstore in-world. This full fatpack of older body skins is available for free with no group join required.

Sizes Included

  • BOM
  • Belleza Applier
  • Maitreya Applier
  • Slink Applier
  • Legacy Applier

Enjoy, FabFree!

Catching Snow

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! It’s chilly out here. I better head back to the cabin, but I just came outside to catch some more snow for my new snowglobe. Then I’ll head back inside and grab some hot coco!

I have 3 cute gifts to share tonight to start us off:

  • The shoes are a past group gift at StephaneL. These ones have little hearts on the sides, perfect for the uncoming V-Day season. You can change the colours of each part of the shoe. The StephaneL group costs 15L to join. These shoes are sized for Belleza, Maitreya & Slink.
  • My cute ponytail hairstyle is a free group gift at Lara AC. They have a lot of gifts! This will be found in their hair gifts section- use the TP board yo get there.
  • My lipstick is a group gift at Top1Salon. It’s a pack of glosses that fit Lelutka Evo/X and the group join cost is 39L to join.

Home Sweet Home

I am holding the “Home Sweet Home” Snowglobe in my hand, which is the current free group gift at Birth. It includes a snow animation inside the globe and a holding pose animation. The globe can be held or use as decor. See the animation below for what the globe looks like up close- it’s very pretty and impeccably detailed. This gift probably won’t be available for long so go get it now.

Have a great night, FabFree!
