Free Dove Hunt – Part 1

Free Dove May 2

Hi there Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about you, but I’ve had a long week already and I’m in some major need of retail therapy! Luckily there is a great hunt going on at Free Dove for the month of May. This means I get my retail therapy for FREE! When I first started the hunt, I really had no idea just how big the hunt really was. There is a lot of cool stuff to be had, everything from shoes to jewelry.

To start, pictured in the top left photo is this super fun party dress. This mesh dress is one of the FREE hunt gifts from Fission. I love the sequined skirt! The dress comes in standard mesh sizes with matching alpha layers. Next, in the center photo, the mask and the ring are both gifts at Free Dove from Masoom. The sheer lace mask is mesh and has the ability to be re-sized, and has a ribbon tie that goes around your head. I like the almost art deco look to this chunky ring. The ring is actually part of a complete outfit you can find while hunting, but it was so cute I couldn’t resist showing it right away! To the right in the photo is a pretty cocktail dress, also by Fission. Like all the gifts in this hunt, this is also FREE. The dress comes with standard sizes and alphas. I think it would be great for entertaining guests.

Now for a few of the more casual items in the Free Dove hunt. I think this light blue day dress is very sweet. The buttons on the chest make the dress, I also really like the little cap-sleeves. This is a FREE hunt gift from Fission and it comes with standard sizes. The top pictured in the center is also by Fission. I was really happy to see something in one of my favorite shades of green. As with the other Free Dove hunt gifts by Fission, this one is fully mesh with standard sizes. I think the dress in the photo to the right is really feminine and pretty. It too is by Fission, and of course is fully mesh. In the country we’d wear this little dress with some cute boots and a bolero style jean-jacket!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my review of the Free Dove Hunt so far! There will be more to come, so stay tuned!

From Farmboy To Pop Icon!

WHC Farmboy 1

Greetings from the Riler family farm, where we grow all kinds of healthy food that I won’t eat. I remember once when I was a young pup and Mom asked me “Why won’t you eat fruits and vegetables? There has to be something that we can grow that you’ll eat.” Mom stared at me in complete exasperation. That was the day I learned parrots do not grow on trees. Also, I am told if they did, parrot trees would not grow in the Midwest. I have learned a lot about farming since then, most of it from countless hours of playing FarmVille on Facebook.

The most important lesson I learned about farming is: Do not dress like you have just fallen off the turnip truck. (Wait, if you actually did just fall off the turnip truck, you probably are a farmer anyway, so dressing like that is good, too.) My point is, you are going to want to dress the part and the FREE Gingham Hunt Prize from Firelight Creations/MAN STUFF is perfect for that handsome farmhand look. The prize consists of the Leroy mesh shirt in red gingham and the Cole jeans in light blue denim. The shirt is very nicely shaped and, together with the mesh Cole jeans, which I also consider a keeper, this is a very masculine look. MAN STUFF is the division of Firelight Creations we have to thank for this FREE hunt gift, but included in the same box is a matching women’s outfit from Firelight Creations. This hunt prize would be a very good start for a “Country” kind of outfit for club events and sims, in addition to being nice enough for your regular wardrobe. I may not be the kind of guy suited for farm work, but in this outfit, I could do commercials for brand name soda pop on TV. I could easily imagine myself drinking an ice cold can of pop, condensation dripping down my muscular chest, as my female co-workers in the office break room gawk in silent appreciation. Casual Friday – here I come! Kidding aside, this outfit looks great, and I could seriously sell a ton of pop in this.

For a more suburban look, I love this FREE thank you gift from Carami! It is the Trenton Tee and it comes in a set of five solid dark colors, changeable via hud. This is far more than just a basic mesh T-shirt, this FREE Gift is much more generous than that. The Trenton Tee comes in four variations; tucked, untucked, normal bottom untucked, and narrow bottom untucked. With choices like that, getting a great fit and the right look should not be hard at all. One last reason you need to pick up this FREE gift from Carami: It comes with a sixth bonus texture that isn’t on the hud. That bonus texture is the one I am wearing above, a very casual retro looking print T-shirt. Just take care to make a backup copy of the print tee, because once you change it using the hud, it is replaced with the color you have chosen. In short, Carami is giving you a great basic dark T-shirt in five colors and four variations plus a bonus printed T-shirt design! You can’t beat this kind of a thank you gift, thank you very much Carami.

One last thing I need to mention this week, the skin I am wearing is from Seven Deadly Skins. It is the free group gift for May and looks fantastic, I like it so much you will probably be seeing me in it often in the coming weeks. Seven Deadly Skins is a pay group, but the quality of their skins is excellent and the gifts and specials they have make it well worth joining. As of this moment the group is currently on sale for 50L and is a great pick up for both male and female avies. Well, I am all talked out. This blogging is nearly as hard as cartoon farming (but twice as rewarding). Until next time everyone, have fun and see you on the grid. —–WHC Riler

Mud and Bones

bones & mud

Happy Monday Fab Free’rs, I hope everyone had a great weekend! Despite it being Monday, I’m excited to be here and even more so to share some great freebies with you. Let’s get to it!

I know you see Pru wear a LOT of hair styles from Little Bones. I’ll be the first to tell you, Little Bones is my go-to shop for hair in Second Life. Not only do I love the styles, I enjoy the color options as well. The hair pictured above is the current Group Gift at Little Bones. The style is named Crimson and the gift includes the “Resort” color change hud which has a variety of fun bright color fades (think pinks, oranges, yellows, and greens). It also includes a hud to change the “scalp” color for a little added detail, or you can simply turn the scalp portion of the hair off so that there’s no visible scalp at all. Another reason I very much enjoy Little Bones is that the VIP group is one of the most generous gift-giving groups I am a member of.  I was in the store today, and I took a count of the VIP gifts still available. There are 14 FREE gifts out at Little Bones, including the current one. That said, there is a one-time fee of 100 lindens to join the group. However that’s less than 10 lindens per hairstyle! Some of the gifts are even Fat Packs that include all the color options. So, I think I’ve made my case, the 100 linden fee is completely worth it.

Next, this pretty skin Pru has on is the May group gift at MUDSkin. The skin comes in a Fat Pack of tones that includes the Native tone shown in the photo above and a wide rage of pale to dark tones. The gift is FREE, and the MUDSkin group is FREE to join. I think these lips are just lovely, and it’s not often I see group gift skins with pretty ginger/brown brows. The brows are tinted just so that I think they would match well with light brunette and darker blonde shades as well. Either way, this beautiful skin is FREE, and well worth the effort of giving it a try. I thought it looked rather good with Pru’s brightly colored hairstyle!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Boho Fedora

Fedora final

Happy Friday Everyone!! I hope you’ve all had a good week and are making fun weekend plans. Speaking of the weekend, this super fun outfit would make great weekend attire for going out with friends. I usually pick out darker colors and patterns, but I just couldn’t help myself with this one! lol

Have you ever had the urge to throw on one of your significant other’s hats? I do all the time! Finally I got brave and have bought one or two of my own. This greenish-gold fedora reminded me of that. Fedoras are my favorite style of hat to wear, and sometimes having one a little over-sized is fun. This unisex hat is a current FREE gift at Fab Free Headquarters from Couture Chapeau, and it has a re-size script to fit just about any size. There’s no need to join a group, (though we’d love it if you did!) just head on over to FFHQ and pick it up.

Also at FFHQ is this pretty skin from Hankii Pankii. The bright fun make up is part of the skin, and this FREE gift includes several appliers including Slink and Maitreya, as well as a few more. Considering the colorful nature of the outfit, I knew this skin would be a perfect fit!

I’m not sure which part of this FREE group gift from ALB Dream Fashion I like best, the top or the shoes?! If forced to decide, I’d probably pick the shoes, but it would be difficult. I love the bright colorful patchwork pattern, it’s fun and summery. The top also allowed me to show off some skin, which for me really means showing off the tattoos I like so much! Not wanting to show quite so much skin? I think this loose-fitting crop top would look great with a solid colored tank under it as well.

Next, I adore this bumble bee manicure from Nail Me!. Talk about a fun manicure that is perfect for summer! This set comes with toenail appliers too, so  your tootsies can be as cute as your fingertips. In addition there are appliers for Slink nails, and an Omega applier. This set is the Nail Me! contribution to the Birds and Bees Hunt. The BBH is a 1 linden hunt.

The cell phone I used with the pose from Velvet Poses is now a Marketplace dollarbie from No Cabide. Not only is this cell super cute, it comes with a texture change hud so you can match your phone to more of your stuff! Skyler showed this cute phone originally in one of her posts here. She also included a close-up of the texture change hud!

Like the “Selfie” pose from Velvet Poses? You can get a pack of 5 selfie poses (phone  not included) for just 50 linens at the ToBeOutsider event. That’s just 10 lindens per pose!

Whew! That was a lot of stuff! Here are the details, Enjoy!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL The Birds & The Bees Hunt SignIf you’re a hunter like me, you’re happy that there are always so many hunts going on at any given time. Heck, if it weren’t for hunting, my wardrobe wouldn’t be continually stuffed with new clothes. I very nearly never have to wear the same thing twice, though I do have my favorites… and for the most part, they all came from hunts!

If you’re not a hunter, you need to get in the game! Hunts are a great way to get all kinds of free (or very nearly free) stuff for your inventory. It’s not so difficult and there’s help to get started. FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages with useful tips and tricks.

So check out all the May hunts going on right now. Click the names for more information on each hunt.

See you out on the hunt!

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope you’ve all had a good week thus far. My week has been fantastic, and just keeps getting better. Needless to say I’m excited, and I’ve got some freebie goodness to share!

I have to say, I am never not impressed by the lovely gifts put out by BYRNE. I love this white and black dress with the dramatic neck-line and lace-like pattern. To me it looks high fashion. The dress also comes in a black version with the design in white. To get this amazing FREE dress, simply join the BYRNE Style group (it’s FREE also) and check past notices.

To go with my fancy new dress, I picked up a couple of the many FREE gifts out at the current round of Chapter Four. This is an anniversary round for the Chapter Four event, so the designers have put out lovely gifts to celebrate. To get the gifts, head on over to the event location and join the FREE Chapter Four group. Then click the little gift box most of the designers have out. Simple!

The first of the gifts are these exaggerated cat-eye sunglasses from ANE. Especially in the summer, I feel about sunglasses the same way I do about shoes, you can’t have too many! Like all the Chapter Four gifts, these are FREE, just wear your Chapter Four tag.

Personally, I am a huge fan of Pink Acid. I love their products. I really love it when I get the chance to snag something beautiful from Pink Acid for FREE! At Chapter Four, you can pick up this delicate crystal ring by Pink Acid for FREE. This ring is exactly the sort of jewelry I’d wear to suit my own personal style. This gift includes the silver version shown, and a matching gold version.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
