Chevron Pony

Chevron Pony

Happy Weekend Fab Free’rs! I want to start by saying I don’t think I will ever get tired of chevron patterns. My best friend would disagree, but I’m okay with that. So for those like me who love chevron, you have to get this dress! It’s incredibly cute on, and best of all it’s FREE!

I even love the colors of this adorable dress. To get it you’ll need to head over to Gizza and hunt down the On9 Anniversary Hunt cupcake. The hint said something about stairs. Just click the cupcake and the prize is yours. This FREE hunt gift at Gizza comes in standard mesh sizes.

Also part of the On9 Anniversary Hunt is this cute little pony-shaped clutch from ERSCH. Like all the FREE prizes on this hunt you’re looking for a little pink and green cupcake. I thought this little clutch was just the right amount of cute and playful without being juvenile. I love fun accessories like this one from ERSCH.

There are many amazing gifts as part of the On9 Anniversary Hunt. Love and I have shown several, you can see the previous posts listed below in case you missed them.

I am a Wolf

Wolf

Hello again Fab Free! Glad you could visit! For this post I’ve got a fun group gift from Tres Blah, something pretty from Persefona, and a little bit of sparkle from Alaskametro. This simple yet playful style really makes me feel like summer. It gets hot hot hot where I am in the next few months and a tied-up tank top is definitely a wardrobe requirement for lazy afternoons when you want to keep cool.

This particular top is the FREE group gift from Tres Blah. It is fully mesh and comes in a wide range of sizes as well as several colors. It also appears a little shorter in this photo than it actually is due to the pose I’m using. The Tres Blah group has a 100 linden group join fee that grants you instant access to this gift, and several past gifts. Needless to say the one time fee is well worth it!

These pretty white roses nestled into a wreath around Pru’s head are the most recent group gift at Persefona. The flowery gift is FREE to all group members and the Persefona group is FREE to join. Flower accessories are so fun this time of year, it makes me want to be barefoot somewhere with soft cool grass! This head wreath can be re-sized via click menu for easy fitting.

Of course I had to add a little color in, these sparkly red nails are the On9 Anniversary Hunt prize from Alaskametro. This pretty nail polish set is FREE, and includes 5 glittery colors, appliers for fingers and toes, as well as Maitreya, Slink, and Omega options. You’ll definitely want to head over to Alaskametro and find the cupcake hunt item for this FREE manicure/pedicure set. The colors are too pretty to pass up!

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

In The Harsh Light of the Day

In the Harsh Light of the Day

Hello Fab Free’rs! I’m feeling very Morticia Addams in this awesome dress from MoDanna, and I love it! This black leather gown is low in the front, low in the back and fits like a glove. It comes in several mesh sizes including specific body fits. The slight flare at the ankles gives it an added touch of goth-y elegance. To get this dress, simply wear your MoDanna group tag (the group is FREE to join), head to MoDanna, and pay the gift vendor 1 linden.

Modanna Dark 9

To go with the gown from MoDanna, I picked up this gorgeous eye-shadow from SlackGirl. It’s their FREE On9 Anniversary Hunt prize. This gold shadow with a smoky wing from SlackGirl comes with several color options each with the gold base. Additionally this hunt gift comes with appliers for just about every mesh head available, including some I was unaware of. There are also system layers for classic avatars. If you want to continue the hunt, head to On9 and click the cupcakes at each vendor booth for a folder with a hint and a landmark to each main location where you’ll hunt down your FREE cupcake containing the hunt prize.

For the final touch I picked up these beautiful winged-heart earrings are a 10 linden gift at the Dark Side event. The earrings by Indulge Temptation are highly detailed re-sizable mesh, and well worth the 10 lindens. You’ll find them in a gift box at the Indulge Temptation booth at the Dark Side event.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Steam Punk Princess

Steam Punk Close There’s a fun underwater-steam-punk themed grid-wide hunt happening for the month of March. Steam: The Hunt “Realms of The Deep” started March 1st and continues through the end of the month. The Steam Hunt is a FREE hunt, simply find the hidden gear, and click it to get your prize. I had a lot of fun playing dress-up with some of the items I found on the hunt, I think you will too! I also picked up the March group gift at ECCO because the dainty little crown was too cute to pass up and it looks adorable with this playful steam punk outfit.

I also picked up this cute little crown at ECCO. The crown is the March group gift at ECCO, and I think it looks super cute with this steam punk outfit. The crown gift includes a color change hud that allows you to choose between 6 different colors for the accent roses on the crown. To get this gift, head to the ECCO main store, pay the one time join fee of 200 lindens, and claim your group gift.

The little hooded jacket, ruffled corset, and striped skirt are all part of the female gift at Snowpaws. There’s a male gift included in the folder as well. The FREE Steam Hunt gift at Snowpaws includes several mesh sizes for easy fitting. Each piece can be worn separately as well as together. I love the playful feel of this look, it’s cute and has that steam-punk vibe without being over-the-top. With the right shoes I think you could take this outfit from fantasy and role play to something more urban everyday.

Speaking of shoes, these boots from Lindy Modern are one of two pairs you’ll get as your FREE Steam Hunt prize. The boots are highly detailed and include alpha layers. There’s no need for mesh feet to wear these boots from Lindy Modern, they fit mesh and classic avatars. I think these boots would also be cute with a solid colored top and jeans, for a fun modern look with a steam punk edge.
Steam Punk Next stop on my hunting spree is Park Place. The Steam Hunt prize at Park Place is this gigantic book case complete with male and female poses. It also has a giant aquarium in the center that is sure to make you feel like you’re deep under the ocean waves. This FREE Steam Hunt gift at Park Place was too large for my little laptop to get a full sized clear photo of it, so I included an ad from Park Place below.

Here are the details, Happy Hunting!

If the Shoe Fits!

The Fab Free Shoe Day is finally here! I am so excited about all the shiny shoes I’ll be adding to my ever-growing collection!! I’ve been oohhing and ahhing over the other posts and plan on spending some time snagging the shoes everyone has found for myself! That said, it just so happens there are 2 hunts going on at Free Dove that include, you guessed it, FREE Shoes! Though you will have to hunt for them, the shoes are absolutely FREE, and you’ll find men’s shoes as well as the ladies shoes I’ll be showing. First, one of the designers participating in a current Free Dove Hunt is Duh!.

Duh Shoes

You can find both pairs of these cute boots from Duh! at Free Dove, just hunt them down. I promise they aren’t too hard to find. Plus with cute FREE shoes on the line, a little hunting never hurt anyone. Each of these pairs of boots include a matching alpha layer and do not require mesh feet of any kind. While you are at Free Dove and hunting, why stop with these? Iconica also has several hunt items at Free Dove, 5 of which are FREE women’s shoes.

Iconica Shoes 1

Each of the above pairs of shoes are a FREE hunt prize at Free Dove by Iconica. There are men’s shoes to be found as well, but I’ll be sticking to the shoes for the ladies. The Iconica shoes are not only FREE but several are in exclusive “Free Dove Hunt” colors. The best part about the Iconica Free Dove Hunt collection, is that there are shoes for every occasion from casual to dressy. The shoes on the left require mesh feet, there is a pair for Slink High or Belleza feet included in the box. The boots in the center include a regular alpha layer, and should not be worn with mesh feet. I was able to wear them with my mesh body by adjusting their position a little. The shoes to the right also include 2 versions, one for Slink Mid feet, and one for Belleza.

Iconica Shoes 2

The best way to end this post in my mind is with dressiest shoes in the bunch. These shoes are also part of Iconica’s hunt items at Free Dove. The party shoes on the left include a version meant to fit Slink High feet and a second version meant to fit Belleza mesh feet. The classy black pumps on the left include a pair meant for Slink High feet only.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

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.

Guest Blog by Gloria Silverstone – Twisted Victorian Gothic

See the Original Post here – Twisted Victorian Gothic

POSTED ON OCTOBER 9, 2015

FT Twisted Fall hunt 2015_Victorian Gothic LRThe Twisted Hunt (9/19-10/19) is well under way and although dubbed the hardest hunt on Second Life, the prizes are worth the effort.  Today, I’m showcasing Finishing Touches main hunt gift the Qi Skybox, side hunt items and a corresponding gacha collection.  The skybox and all the furnishings have a modern Victorian Gothic influence in a black, white and grayscale palette….perfect for a sophisticated Halloween.  Victorian Gothic is an architectural style and movement during the mid-late 19th century, often seen as a sub-style of the broader Gothic Revival style.  It is characterized by gothic details, decorative patterns, scallopping, lancet windows and hood moulding.  Architectural elements such as pointed arches, steep-sloping roofs and fancy carvings like lace ant lattice-work were applied to a wide range of Gothic Revival objects.  The movement is all about drama and elegance with lavish interiors, curved ornate furniture and plenty of decorative details.

FT Twisted Fall hunt 2015_Victorian GothicFinishing Touches Qi skybox has a decorative pattern tiled ceiling, tall narrow pointed arched windows, oversized white candle fireplace and white/black wainscoting.  I styled the Victorian living space with the tufted curved black & white sofas, armchairs and stools enhancing the ornate detailed birdcage chandeliers and patterned tapestry wall hangings.  Pops of red, hanging boston ferns, potted palms and framed Victorian silhouette complete the space.

FT Twisted Fall hunt 2015_Gold SkeletonTo commemorate the 11th Twisted Hunt, Finishing Touches is offering a side hunt with eleven gifts that correspond to the gacha collection.  The hunt items include 3 versions of a skirted table, 3 versions of hanging tapestry, couple rugs with pillows, Persian Grey wrinkled rug, box of skulls, pumpkin trio and ceramic vase.  All side hunt gifts can be found in the Twisted Qi skybox (the main Twisted Hunt gift).  Do you love the Qi skybox?  Need to furnish it, then check out the gacha for beautifully twisted coordinating decor priced at $50 per play.  Try your luck at black or white caged chandeliers, shadow box frames, tulip lamps, coffee tables, and tufted stools (see key below).

_FT_ Twisted Gacha Fall 2015Lastly, 24Karat Roux, owner and creator of Finishing Touches is offering the Rolled Arm Couch & Chair in White Leather and Black Leather for 50% off the regular price during the Twisted Hunt.  The couch and chair were designed to coordinate with the Twisted Qi skybox hunt gift and Twisted gacha decor items.  Hope you are inspired to create an elegance spooky gothic Halloween using the Finishing Touches free Twisted hunt gifts.  Happy Hunting!

Taxi to Finishing Touches please…

Death Before Decaf

Death Before Decaf

It’s been a long time since I’ve been “hunting” in Second Life, but this is my personal favorite season for hunts. The Autumn Effect Hunt started recently, and I’m really excited about the items I’ve come across thus far. The Autumn Effect Hunt is a FREE hunt, and there are items for the men as well as the ladies. So far one of my favorite TAE hunt prizes is this fun fall outfit from The Little Bat.

I adore bats, they are part of classic Halloween iconography. Though I’ll tell you, I’d wear bat-themed clothing year-round without hesitation! This cute sweater from TLB is fully mesh and includes the needed alpha for classic avatars. I had no issue wearing it with my Matreya Lara body. Also included in the FREE TAE hunt gift from TLB are these rust-red colored corduroys. In my mind, corduroys are to fall fashion what bats are to Halloween, making this combo a perfect fall outfit, though you could wear each piece separately. Also fully mesh, these pants come in the usual standard sizes and have a matching alpha layer.

One of the many things I like about fall is the fact that it’s cool enough for me to enjoy hot coffee no matter what time of day it is. I’m not one who can drink hot coffee during the day in the summer, it just makes me melt, and not in a good way. This fun coffee cup is the FREE TAE hunt prize at Reckless. It’s my new favorite accessory. The cup is animated with a drinking animation, and includes a color/texture change hud. The hud allows you to change the cup and lid colors between black and white, and it allows you to change the texture of the cardboard sleeve. The option shown reads “Death Before Decaf” which I think should be my motto on some days! There is a second option (not shown) that reads ” If Loving Pumpkin Spice Makes Me A Basic Bitch, Then A Basic Bitch I’ll Be “, and I have to admit it made me giggle.

Okay, I’ll admit it, there needed to be a better photo of these hauntingly pretty eyes from Arise. They are the FREE TAE gift at Arise. These pale peachy-copper colored eyes come with a standard eye layer, and optional mesh eyes. Every once in a while I enjoy wearing an eye color that is a major departure from what one might consider normal. The second I saw these, I had to show them. They are beautiful and give a truly unique look.

Alright Fab Free, here are the details, Happy Hunting!
