Summer Camping

Summer Camping

Hey FabFree, you are all invited to my campsite to come camping (or glamping?). We’re going to have an amazing time. It’s time to unwind and get ou the old sleeping bag, drink lots of adult beverages, and have a relaxing time summer camping trip.

The Summer Camp Hunt

This summer marks the first Summer Camp Hunt by Malus Park Events and Hunts. Like all of the Malus Park hunts, it takes place at the Malus Park sim, which is located here. The hunt object you are looking for is a sleeping bag, and they are colour-coded by the designer. You’ll see the colour you are looking for on the board at the front of the sim. Each prize costs less than 10L on the hunt. All of the prizes on this hunt are themed around camping! You can see a list of the participating stores and hunt prize previews here. The hunt ends on August 14th.

Summer Camping V

In my camping scene, I am showing the prizes from Splintered Creations. They have 9 hunt prizes in total that cost 10L each. All of the big trees, the large yellow tent, the picnic table, the ice tub, and white adirondack chairs are some examples of the prizes they are offering. I am showing 5 of the prizes in the panoramic shot of my campsite, so reference the credits below for the details of what is featured in my campground. I just couldn’t fit them all into one post! It’s a massive set of camping decor and scenery. It even includes a yeti with large trees as one hunt prize (which was way too big to fit into my picture). This is an absolutely enormous camping scene you can create with this set, so if you are in need of items to build a camping site, this is perfect. Here’s the hunt hints to find all of the prizes from Splintered Creations on the Summer Camp Hunt:

  1. I’m on top of the grid
  2. Awesome sponsors and designers
  3. Nothing like being curled up by a warm fire
  4. What a beautiful covered bridge
  5. Seeking REFUGE by the water
  6. What an amazing, yet DETERMINED green apple
  7. Nachos, Snow Cones, and Cotton Candy Oh My!
  8. In the cemetery at the gate
  9. What a beautiful Rustic look

Camping Gear Brought to You by FabFree at Fifteen

I also added a whole bunch of camping gear and outdoor decor to my campground from FabFree at Fifteen, from the designers Kim’s Kreations and Dench Designs. I love these items and they fit the summer camping theme perfectly, so I had to show them off!

Kim’s Kreations

Summer Camping II

  • The free gift from Kim’s Kreations for FabFree group members is the floor blanket with string lights and lanterns. The blanket includes cuddle animations.
  • Their 15L sale item is the pretty white and blue garden bench, which has cute sitting animations!
  • Their full-priced item is the big blue tent and sleeping bag (see the panoramic shot of the campsite at the top of the post). It costs 99L, and you can actually sleep inside the bag and sit inside the tent!

Dench Designs

Summer Camping III

  • Dench Designs is offering this table with all of the accessories – including the animesh dog, wine bottles, the red beer case, candles, coffee cups, matches, coffee pot, and the wicker basket – as their free gift to FabFree group members. Just use the menu on the table to rezz each item and then you can move them wherever you like. The golden lab is my favourite part!
  • For 15L, you can have the awesome camo-patterned chair that matches the table.

Summer Camping IV

  • Dench Designs‘ full-priced item is this log, campfire, and the pretty tree on the right. The log includes fun bento animations that allow you and your friends to interact with the fire pit! It costs 150L.

Enjoy your camping!

Into the Woods

Hello FabFree Folks, I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend.  One of my favorite things to do over a gorgeous weekend like this one is go camping. So when I saw the Camping Trip Hunt I jumped on it.

camping_002

This is the ‘Plaid Tie Outfit’ from JLZ Fashions. I love the cute casual look and the sassy but still modest shorts. This is something I’d even wear in RL as well as SL.  The hair style I’m wearing here is ‘Velma’ from RunAway hair.  Usually, Hunt prize hairs are just the one color but [RA] has given us the entire fatpack for ‘Velma’. That’s 30 colors for us!

camping_001

Adorably Strange Wares has set out this ‘Glamping Hammock’ for the Hunt and I thought it was the perfect way to relax in style. The hammock comes with it’s own two trees and gently falling leaves. There are ten poses so you’ll be sure to find the one that makes you happy and relaxed. Plus, it only has a nine land impact.

 

The 0L Camping Trip Hunt runs until May 15th so get your tents and hiking boots and go get it!

Change is Good

I went by T&A Designs tonight and saw Tweety has changed the profile picks reward. YAYYYY!

.T&A Profile Pick - Fatpack

The newest Profile Pick Reward from T&A Designs is the Summer Oufit fatpack. There are 7 different top patterns, the shorts, bracelet and necklace in the pack. The top is a halter style top with two small straps across the back. My hair is Ives from Me-I Humanoidism’s lucky board, which I’m sure Love has blogged. My ears are a camping chair gift from LoveCats. I camped out for 85 minutes to receive the ears, but it was so worth every minute. I’m also wearing Mayden Coutures Profile Pick Reward bare feet. The Daisy Days Lounging Daisy is a scribo matic group gift from Pulling Strings.

Grendel’s Children meets Pacific Sunrise (sort of)

Grendel’s Children has the largest collection of non-human avatars in Second Life.. and most of them are available for a single L$.

I love dropping in to the aquatic’s area from time-to-time (shoot, I love all of Grendel’s Children.. even the bug thingies!) just to look. The last time Istopped there, I bought not one.. but three full avatars at only 1L$ each. I know, I know.. I splurged and shelled out a whole 3L$.

jellyfishavatar

The jellyfish avatar is a full avatar. It includes the ghostly skin you see, and an AO that helps promote the idea that you are a jellyfish. I altered the shape a bit (yes! it’s mod!) because.. at least in my mind’s eye.. merjellies would be rather blob-like on top.. not long and lithe.

Next up was the deep sea siren.

deepsea

This is a beautiful full avatar. Out of all the merfolks I see in SL, the ones at Grendel’s Children and Tekili-li are the most mer-like. These are truly a people adapted to living fully in the water. This siren avatar includes a wonderful swimming animation that is worth the 1L$ all by itself.

The third mer avatar I purchased isn’t ready yet.

Tune in later to see what I mean.

Pacific Sunrise is a mer-shop filled with mer goodies. And now you can camp for several top-quality mer avatars and mer-poses. I’ve been wanting to get the Ursula one for some time and when i saw it in the camping chair.. woot! /me joy jumped.

ursula

I adapted my own shape, and used a different hair for this picture because I wanted a younger version of Ursula for another blog post. The hair and shape that come with the full avatar is all-out Ursula, right down to her full cheeked, squared-off jaw.. it’s an excellent interpretation of the villainess.. and the tentacles are to die for.

Find Ash, Ema’s

I saw this wonderful hair on Free Finds for Men and fell in love with it! Hawk.. you need this too. omg I feel so.. piratey.. with it on.

I love the way the Childish Pleasure group gift hair from Find Ash goes with this camp prize, Baggy Love from Ema’s. Those cute kitty paws are included with the outfit.. and they leave kitty paw prints when you walk. /me squeals!

emas

Ema’s has four camp chairs, each with a menu selection of several outfits to choose from. There’s some nice stuff here! See my earlier post for more examples of camp gifts.

Other notes: Pose from the Diesel Works Sundari Og set, skin is from Beauty Avatar Couture, eyes from Wasabi Pills.


Ripped

My good friend, Hawk, got a couple of wonderful free finds from Ripped, and offered to model them for me. These are really nice outfits, perfect for any elven or Gorean men out there.

rippedmaleThe one on the left can be yours for camping (I forget how many minutes.. sorry), and the one on the right is a lucky chair win. I love the detail on these clothes, the pictures really don’t do them justice.

Dark Eden has camp-for boots (45 minutes if I remember correctly), that are suitable for males and females.

debootsThese boots are beautiful in their rustic grunginess, but be aware that they are fully prim.. so if you need to alter them make a copy before you start to adjust parts.

The camping chairs at Dark Eden are now located outside the shop, and there are other freebies waiting for you there. Don’t let that stop you from venturing inside though, Dark Eden has some of the coolest designs on the grid.. and many for obscenely low prices.

More Great Gifts from Discord

I just can’t say enough about the Discord sim shops: the prices are great, there are a good number of freebies and dollarbies that change frequently, there are lots of lucky chairs, and Orange Meili gives out some of the best group gifts ever!

discord1

  • Hunt items: female (left), male  (right)

There are two  outfits in hiding, and Orange Meili always includes two hunt prizes: one for males and one for females. In searching for the hunt items, I also ran across two cute freebies, and hit the lucky chair for a couple items. Then, after I had finished the hunt, I camped for another wonderful gift. All this gifty goodness.. for free?

discord21

  • Above Left: Girls Style (freebie)/ Shoes are a Discord lucky chair prize
  • Above Right:  Girls Style  (dollarbie)/ Shoes are a dilly Dolls midnight mania prize

discord3

  • Above left: Lucky Chair prize.
  • Above Right:  Camp-for item (30 minutes)/ Shoes are Dilly Dolls midnight mania prize

Yep! This is one of the reasons I actually spend L$ in Discord (besides the outstanding quality of the clothes) — because the sim owner and the shop owners are so generous to their customers.

How much did I spend on all of this great stuff?  Only 1L$.

pssst.. need to know where the Discord hunt hearts are located? Check here.

Dilly Dolls, Lazolli, and Flirt

Dilly Dolls has some nice stuff in both the Vain 2009 grid wide hunt and the Betrayed Heart hunt. I’ve shown one of the prizes below. The shoes in the picture on the left were a midnight madness prize. Dilly Dolls always has great midnight madness prizes, and the totals to win the prizes are usually met.. get your name on the board! The boots in the picture on the right are a camp-for item.. for only 45 minutes as a marionette. Warning: expect major lag.

dilly1 The skins I’ve shown below are from Lazolli. There are two new gifts on the counter as you enter the shop. They are both from the Julia line, and there are eight make up variations included in the gifts (four in each one). The delicate jewelry pieces I am wearing in the pictures below are from Flirt: the pink set is a lucky chair gift, the gold set is a subscribo gift.
