A Free & Fun Gear Game Sim-Wide Hunt!

A Free & Fun Gear Game Sim-Wide Hunt!

Hey Fab Free! Did you know that the Steam Hunt is going on right now? It is a super fun hunt which on for the whole month of March. It is one of the longest-running hunts in SL and it’s also the only steampunk-themed hunt left on the grid. Yesterday I did some hunting at the Steam Expo, where there is a sim-wide hunt game. All of the free décor gifts shown here are hunt prizes you can get from this gear hunt game.

The Gear Game

The Steam Hunt/Expo’s gear hunt game is really fun! What you do is teleport to the start location of the hunt where you will grab a gear games HUD on the wall. Unpack the HUD and attach it to your screen. Now you will run around all over the expo sim and look for the bronze coloured gears, and click them with your HUD on. The bronze or copper-coloured gears will give you points, and if you click silver gears that will take away your points- so don’t click the silver ones! The gears just pop up randomly, so look all around!  You want to accumulate as many points as you can and you can check your point count on the HUD.

Points for Prizes

Once you have lots of points, you can exchange them for prizes. Each prize costs from 1 to 30 points each, and it is quite easy to win enough points to get all the prizes around the sim. In different creators’ booths around the sim, there will be writing in yellow over the prizes which states how many points each one costs. The HUD and the game is completely free to play, so whatever prizes you get will be a free addition to your inventory. There are 35 prizes in total that I could find.

Steam Hunt XV Store-Wide Hunt

Note that the gears game hunt is a sim-wide hunt in addition to their grid-wide hunt. The gears game hunt featured in this blog post is part of the hunt, but they have a larger grid-wide hunt too! So there are basically two hunts part of the Steam XV Expo/Hunt event this month. If you want to do their grid-wide hunt please visit the Historical Hunt Ltd. website for a list of stores. The hunt prizes are available to find until March 31st. The grid-wide hunt is also a 0L, completely free hunt.

Have fun hunting, Fab Free!

Feelin’ the Good Vibes

BeFunky-collage 1

Hey, Fab Free!

Today I am showcasing two fabulous gifts you can get as group gifts for free through the Fabulously Free in SL group.

A Cozy Lounge Set

I added the cute lounge sofa and wall art “Good Vibes” by Partners in Crime in my living room. It is really cute and matched my light blue wall colour perfectly! I also love the print it comes with- it adds some good vibes to my house, which is my happy place here in SL.

Vintage Vibes

I decided to lounge around in this comfy outfit made by Sweet Willows, called Vintage set. The set includes an HUD with four colour options: green, yellow, and a red-purple. It has a bit of a boho and vintage feel to it at the same time, plus I love the botanical pattern of it.

Sizes Included

Belleza: Freya, Isis
Maitreya
Legacy
Slink: Physique, Hourglass

Eternal Winter

Winter

It’s been quite a while since I’ve done a full hunt, but when I saw some of the previews for The Eternal Hunt, I just had to try! The Eternal Hunt is a stamp hunt, meaning you have to wear a hud and follow the teleports to each location and find the hunt object. For this hunt, you’ll be looking for a glowing blue infinity sign. The hud also gives a hint at each location, which is very helpful. Once you’ve visited each location, found the source of infinity, you’ll be teleported to a gift room with about 20 or so FREE gifts from the participating stores. If it’s been a while since you explored Second Life, a hunt like this is a great way to discover new stores, and to check out what’s happening at stores you know. You must do the hunt in order, and you must find the hidden infinity at each location to gain access to the prize room. This hunt ends November 21, so don’t wait, bring a friend and have some fun!

I have to admit, the gift I was most interested in is this stunning fantasy skin from Fallen Gods. I was immediately in love with the ethereal look of this skin. Fallen Gods also happens to be the start location for The Eternal Hunt, you can pick up the hunt HUD there and start your journey to find the source of infinity at each location. Once you’ve reached the end prize room, this skin called “Sidera Starborn” from Fallen Gods is one of the several FREE gifts. This incredibly generous gift includes a full skin set for both men and women. The set includes the system skin in a full version and a PG version, and appliers for just about everything. There is an applier for Slink body, Slink Hands & Feet, as well as a Slink Nail applier so you can perfectly match your nails to this beautiful skin. Also included are appliers for TMP head and body, Omega compatible bodies and heads, Loud Mouth, the Soul Uni Ear, and the Soul Mer Ear.

Another of my favorites from the hunt is the FREE gift from EMO-tions. This gorgeous hair includes a color/size change hud, and these incredibly detailed horns. The horns have a few color change options within the hair hud as well. You can also wear the hairstyle without the horns all together. I really like that this style is pulled up and away from the face, and is long and full down the back. The style is called Love War, which I think suits it well. The color change hud includes shades of black and white, including some silver/grey tones in the middle and a few “faded” options as well. I thought the silver fade option went really well with the skin from Fallen Gods, but honestly all of the colors are pretty.

Next, I think these earrings from OXI are so versatile. They are also a FREE Eternal Hunt prize. They include a texture change hud with a few color options for the gems, and the metal parts of the earrings. I could see these being worn as part of a fantasy look like this one, or something modern and urban. Not to mention that these great geometric shapes are so in right now. I love them.

I picked one last gift to show  from the slew of FREE Eternal Hunt gifts, and it’s this beautifully unique art statue from Balderdash. This “Moonbranch” sculpture has an otherworldly magenta glow that seems to make the hanging crystals shimmer and shine. It makes me think of witchcraft and alchemy. I thought it would be really beautiful standing in a garden, or as part of a fantasy setting of some kind.

Winter 1

I hope you enjoy these fun hunt finds as much as I have, there are many more FREE gifts to be had, this was just a small sample. For more information about The Enternal Hunt, you can head to the start location at Fallen Gods and pick up information along with your stamp HUD.

Art in the Afternoon

Art Gallery

So I took myself out and went exploring this afternoon. It was nice to spend the time and take a look around. I ended up on this beautiful sim with a beach-side art gallery for an artist named Marisa Falbo. Not only is the setting beautiful and serene, so is the art. In addition to the gorgeous atmosphere, you can pick up a sample of Marisa Falbo’s amazing artwork for FREE! There’s a big gift box as you enter the gallery that anyone can purchase for 0 linden. Her other works are for purchase also, so take the time to stop by the gallery, explore the sim, and maybe pick up some art. It’s well worth the visit.

Of course such an occasion needed a great outfit. After all, the person I want to look good for the most is myself. Lucky me, I found this great tube-top and skirt combo by N-Uno on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. This “Summer Day” set is a wearable demo, it’s fully mesh, and includes matching alpha layers. I think it’s cute, feminine, and flirty. It’s the sort of outfit I want to feel confident enough to wear in real life! hahaha Not only did I feel pretty in my new outfit, it presented the perfect opportunity to show off my newest tattoo.

I love this pretty chest tattoo from La Malvada Mujer. The tattoo is a current FREE group gift at La Malvada Mujer, and the group is FREE to join. This lovely tattoo comes in regular system layers, and includes appliers for TMP, Slink, and Omega, each with a fresh and two faded options. I think the flowers at the shoulders are very pretty, and the idea of an envelope is kinda sweet and romantic.

Fantastic Finds at Frogstar

Good evening, my dears. I have a super fast one for you tonight because this sale is only going on until FEB. 8!!

I finally broke down and bought a new home here in SL and I’m all about décor right now.  So I was thrilled when Frogstar put a ton of great home goods ( and jewelry and shoes and nails and and and ) in a ‘retirement’ sale. Not Frogstar retiring , thankfully, but some items to make room for new things!

frogstar_002

First is this cute Chalkboard Door. I propped it up by my front door as a welcome sign. The board has ten different looks to choose from. But if that’s not enough, Frogstar has included blank chalkboards textures so you can create your own messages and pictures!

Sharing the front porch with my new chalkboard is Crys Secret Garden’s Planter gift for FabFree. This lovely little planter full of greenery and a butterfly is available at our own FabFree Headquarters for… you guessed it… free!

frogstar_004

This is the Torcello End table. I love the ‘distressed paint’ look in real life and I was tickled to find such a cute versatile end table for my SL home. The table comes in eight different colors so one is sure to be perfect for your décor. On the wall is the ‘My Little Raven’ 3d wall art. He comes with three different color changes.  Lastly is the ‘Plaster Garden Lantern’ in yellow. The Lantern is not on sale but it’s still a very reasonable 75L. It is completely resizable so you could use it indoors or out.

I’ve only shown a few of the great home goods on sale but there are also many other items on sale such as jewelry, shoes and nails! Remember, this special “retirement” sale only lasts till Feb 8!!!

Good Morning!

I hope you all took advantage of the fabulous offerings, around the grid, for St. Patrick’s Day.  I finished off the day with a visit to the Paris Metro Art Gallery …where Love suggested I would find a wonderful exhibit AND a free outfit from Paris Metro Couture.

The exhibit, featuring the work of Indea Vaher, highlights the life of African American women from a fictional barrier island; off the coast of the USA.  Vaher is an artist in First Life and her work, focusing on African American southern culture, has been internationally recognized.  The Paris METRO Vaher Dress brilliantly reflects the vibrant colors of Indea’s art pieces, and it is FREE to anyone; you will find it in a vendor right at the landing point.  It comes with a matching hat (not worn).

A Couple More from The U-Neek

The owner of The U-Neek just keeps adding more great stuff in the star hunt. The latest addition is a cool pair of pants for guys.. with a few funky teeshirts thrown in for good measure.

And the skins!

Let’s just say they’re a little.. different.

The U-Neek

Hawk is decked out in some of the men’s dollarbies from The U-Neek. The fractal pants are great for girls too.  I love the skin Shang is wearing, it’s one of the skin duck dollarbies at U-Neek.

The shirt Shang is wearing is the latest (subscribo) group gift from Pixel Dolls.  Pixel Dolls is having a 10L$ retirement sale.. includes skins! It’s ending soon, so if you want some Pixel Doll clothes at a great price you better hurry.

The owner/designer of The U-Neek is also a very talented artist, check her gallery upstairs for a psychedelic feast for the eyes!

RANDOM selection: ANGELICO B, MOONTAN, ASHStyle, IZUMIYA and BUBBLEFISH

Random Fashion by Garbage Prototype has added great stuff at GNUBIE STORE (3rd floor). There are skins, hair and clothes for male and female avatars. I´m wearing High and Wasted Pants (female). They come on several layers and are wearable with or without suspenders. Pinestriped Pants are from the male section but they look great on girls too. Stacey is one of the 2 nice female hairstyles and comes in 23 colors. And Jack (I´m sure you know that´s my favorite *grin*) is one of the 2 available male styles.


Another cute hairstyle I´m wearing in the pics is IZUMIYA´s Hat & Hair. It´s free and comes in black L/M/S, blue L/M/S and brown L/M/S. The freebies and dollarbies are on the 2nd floor, there are tons of free stuff, check it out! There´s a TP-sign at the entrance.
I matched the High and Waisted Pants with ASH Style`s versatile Plain Shirt in white (2 layers, prim collar). The shirt is pictured on a sign at the shop entrance.
Bubblefish Atomic Soda is offering a Failed Transaction Shirt – maybe it will help in anyway to preserve the evil *g* The absolute neccessary shirt for all residents is free and located (big sign) on the counter desk.
MOONTAN´s has a sweet little Teddy keychain as her new freebie. You can wear this goodie on a belt, bag and so on, or on a button as I do.


And if you need some nice stuff for your home or your store, ANGELICO B Designs has something for you at her furniture shop: Lamp Pink Glass small and tall and Green Mist Art Framed Painting.
