Summer in the City

summer time

 

Hi Fab Free, happy Wednesday!! I hope you’ve all had a good week so far, mine has been busy busy busy, but that’s not a bad thing. In recent posts we’ve shown a lot of the FREE and Fabulous Wayward Hunt gifts. If you haven’t checked things out yet, you’ve got a little time left. The hunt ends May 1st. With the hunt ending so soon I wanted to show just a few more of the hunt prizes. Seriously, so impressed with this hunt.

This fun hairstyle is a FREE Wayward Hunt prize at Oleander. The style comes with an exclusive color change hud that includes 2 dark shades and 2 lighter shades, each with fun color “chalked” ends. I like the cute braided back bangs a lot, and I’ve had a few compliments on the hair just wearing it around.

Another FREE WH prize is this adorable little dress from Miseria. The pastel gradient fabric is beautiful, especially with the faint floral type pattern over the bodice. This dress reminds me of everything that is fun about summer. The dress is fully mesh and comes in standard sizes.

Also a FREE WH gift is this pretty clutch from Pink Acid. I love the slightly translucent quality of the clutch, and the shiny iridescent material makes me think of bubbles! The Pink Acid gift also includes a super cute straw hat with little bear ears that unfortunately did not match Pru’s outfit.

Like Pru’s shoes? I love them. They are the pink version of the FREE group gift a Dirty Princess previously blogged here. This FREE group gift is for the month of April, so it too might be gone soon. Currently, the Dirty Princess group is FREE to Join. Don’t miss out!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

As The April Showers Give Way To Flower Power!

whc hippie 1_001

I was a huge fan of Woodstock (I’m pretty sure he was on my first lunch box when I started kindergarten). My memories come flooding back when I think of those times. Of course, I was too young to enjoy the summer of love back then. Sure, I may have gone running off in a field, letting my diaper fall to the warm earth, and enjoying the feeling of a summer breeze embracing me, but I am also pretty sure I would have gotten spanked for it, too. Spanked very hard, the sixties didn’t reach my family home until around 1976. The good news is that for those of us who missed out on the groovy clothes and free love back then, Madcat Creations has designed an excellent prize for The Vintage Hunt. The Male Hippie Outfit is so brilliantly colored it actually looks like it is tie-dyed, as opposed to some similar items with multicolored fractal images on them. This outfit brought me instant faux flashbacks of dancing in the mud, grooving to the sounds of the Grateful Dead. Keep in mind one of the most popular club events in SL are Sixties-themed nights. This prize will come in very handy. The Vintage Hunt is not a free hunt, but the prizes are only 1L and if you look around Madcat Creations you might find the matching women’s version as well (they are boxed separately). My bracelet is a free group gift from one of the best Jewelry stores on SL: Earthstones. The Peace Friendship Bracelet goes great with this outfit, but be mindful that the group costs 250L to join. My campsite is a great hunt prize from Finishing Touches. Available for FREE on The Camping Trip Hunt , it comes with the table, chairs and a nice campfire with a pot of coffee warming. Truly a lovely hunt gift.

whc white wanted jacket

From a full-fledged freak out of colors, we step away from the pallet to admire something entirely different. This white leather jacket with the integrated grey T-shirt from Wanted knocked me out when I saw it. Luckily for all of us, it has just been put on their Midnight Mania board! I was originally planning to pair it with a nice pair of black jeans, or maybe with a frosted texture, which I am sure would look fantastic. However, Apple May Designs had something even better to go with it for 1L in their Recolors Of Spring Hunt. These white pants look great with the jacket, and since they are unbuttoned at the very top, adding a belt to fill the space between the jacket and the pants as shown is a great idea. The Recolors Of Spring Hunt is scheduled to end today so hurry to pick up these pants. Seriously, RUN! As I was preparing this post, I realized this same men’s jacket in XS might please a female avatar who has an androgynous appearance, or is going for a tomboy look. Since it’s an MM board, we guys could sure use your help locking it anyway.

So, as April showers give way to the full bloom of flower power, and your travels on the grid take you to new, exotic locations, please take a moment to reflect on what a lovely, wonderful world we live in. Peace and love.—–WHC Riler

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Wayward-Hunt-Poster-4-15-to-5-1_1024Good morning fabulous friends! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, April 28.

The Wayward Hunt has been sitting at the top of the list for several days now. I suggest going to the hunt’s own web page and checking out the free bicycle.

Then check out The Vintage Hunt. It’s a pretty good size hunt with 46 stores, and it just started last week so you have lots of time to get through them all.

There are plenty more to choose from. I’m sure you can find one to love.

Just a reminder, that these are the 10 most popular viewed hunts over the past 48 hours or so. We don’t know how many people actually start (or finish) any given hunt and this ranking can (and probably will) change in a few hours.

See you out on the hunt!

More than just Little Black Dresses

Hello again, Fab Folks! Thanks to Ms Love’s beautiful post and pics here, you all know that the Black Fashion Fair is in full swing. But there are so many lovely things to be had I wanted to show y’all a few more.

BFFAIRt_001

This is the ‘February’ Dress from Dead Dollz. I love the gorgeous black lace and the sassy split skirt. So very elegant.  And how can you beat the price… it’s free.   Max Gossamer has also set out a great gift for the Fashion Fair. These are the ‘Singapore Swing’ earrings. They come in two lengths and I picked the triple .

BFFair2jpg_001

With all the dollerbies and freebies you might be tempted to just rush in and grab the free/cheap stuff. But be sure to look around. The designers have put out a really awesome Fair. There are lots of “Fair Only” sales and special buys! So take your time and enjoy the shopping!

Step Right Up And Enjoy The Show.

awesome stunt show 1

As a young boy, I witnessed a man in a raggedy, sequined outfit jump over a pair of trailers on his dirt bike, much to the delight of the crowd. Years later, here I am on the shoulder of Route 23, promoting the debut of my own daredevil show. I chose to wear a group gift from TentatioN. It is very casual and sporty, but with the camouflage pattern on the cargo pants pockets and in the lower corner of the shirt, it also says, “I am a warrior.” Sometimes, it’s best to let your clothes speak for you (unless they are going to say “I’m a dork”, then there is no reason to give them a megaphone). This, however, says volumes in a positive, masculine manner.  The gift comes with a color change hud, providing four color choices for both the mesh shirt and the pants. TentatioN is not a free group, though. It will set you back 30L, but this outfit in four colors is worth it.

awesome stunt show 2

I grew up in Los Tres Dolores New Mexico , a town named for a mystical formation of three cacti. For my death-defying entry into the world of show business, I will jump over that local landmark in the greatest riding lawnmower jump in the history of mankind! At first glance a lawnmower it may not appear to be the best choice for soaring through the air, but isn’t a riding mower essentially a helicopter that has been flipped upside down? This very detailed (and shockingly fast) mower is the current FREE group gift from Knight Performance. This store along with the one which shares the building with them (Surplus Motors) are great sources for beautifully detailed vehicles in SL. Both stores are free groups and offer many Midnight Manias, group gifts and discounts. If you have any interest in vehicles on Second Life, you should seriously consider joining them.

If you are going to let your clothes do the speaking for you, this Rockabilly Hunt prize jacket from The Dark Fae positively screams, “Rebel.” Its cool stand-up collar and retro styling including a must see graphic on its’ back are perfect for people who don’t follow the rules, like me (even if it’s because I can’t be bothered to read them). The Rebel Soul Jacket sports versions with and without the t-shirt and comes in three sizes, plus an additional two sizes in fitmesh. Cool style is timeless, and this jacket is perfectly cool! This Rockabilly Hunt prize is not free, but at only 2L, it’s a bargain. These jeans are extraordinary as well, coming from a quickly expanding store called Illi. Currently on their Midnight Mania board, these Midnight Open Belt Jeans are nicely textured and look great, and a big surprise was the texture hud that came with them. Illi gives us 8 denim colors, 4 belt colors and 4 metal accent textures for the belt. That is excellent versatility for a free gift! It does carry a small logo, but it is easy to overlook, given the generosity of this Midnight Mania prize. Also worth noting are my mesh white leather sneakers, fresh from the Wayward Hunt. The prize, from the store United Colors, comes in both men’s and ladies’ sizes and with that touch of blue on them they look fantastic for a FREE hunt gift. I was truly impressed!

Well, I dressed for success and I did everything right but sometimes that just isn’t enough. Sometimes in life the ramp just isn’t high enough, or maybe the wind shifts, or maybe a lawn mower just isn’t meant to fly. A person could drive themselves crazy sitting back and reflecting over those kinds of things, but not me. I am on to my next great adventure and I hope you will be there with me.—–WHC Riler

She’s Gone Wayward

Wayward Hunt

Hi Fab Free! As you can see we are having a great time with the recently started Wayward Hunt! Not only is this hunt FREE but there are tons of amazing designers participating. Thus far I’ve been very impressed with the hunt items, so of course I had to get in on the fun of showing them off!

I love this hairstyle with the fun rainbow ends and cute top bun is the FREE Wayward Hunt prize from Blues. The hairstyle is named Beau and comes in a blond version and the brunette version shown. The rainbow colored ends are beautifully done, and they give this pretty, casual style an edgy playfulness.

This pale freckled skin with red eye-makeup and red lips is the FREE Wayward Hunt gift from The Skinnery. This gift includes the skin in a dark brows option (shown) and a no brows option. Also included with this gift are appliers for the TMP body. (I used the Maitreya HUD to manually adjust my skin-tone to match the Skinnery tone)

The moment I saw this skirt on Flickr, I knew I had to have it! The skirt is the FREE Wayward Hunt gift from Yumyums. It’s a fully mesh skirt and was intended to be worn with the Maitreya body. I think this vibrant floral print is perfect for the season, and the pleats are super cute.

Next, the shoes! I am a sucker for a cute pair of wedge heels. These open-toe wedges are the FREE Wayward hunt prize at Livalle (formerly L. Warwick). The shoes include version to fit Slink High, Belleza, and Maitreya feet.

Finally, the hanging rug with the string of lights in the background is the FREE hunt prize from Toro. The textures area really beautiful, I love the bohemian element to the style. Also, the lights can be turned off and on with just a click. I think this pretty piece would look great indoors or on a covered patio, and it’s great for photos!

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!

The Lady and the Thief

Hello again, FabFolks.  I spent a very pleasant afternoon on the Hunt today and found two things I think you’ll like. I picked the Autism Awareness Hunt   because I have two godsons on the spectrum. So this Hunt is for them!

The Lady and the Thief

C&N Designs is, as y’all know, one of our FabFree Designers and these two Hunt prizes will show you why we’re so excited they are.  First up is the ‘Isabell’ dress in green. I love this gown. The color, the soft floral and the long sleeves almost like wings, all just lovely. You even get the matching necklace.

The Lady and the Thief

This is the men’s prize from C&N Designs, the ‘Thief’ part of our title. Again, C&N has given us a beautiful build as well as a good looking outfit. The boots, the bracers and the belt are all resizable to get that perfect fit.  Since the men’s prize was so nifty, I thought this would be a good time to introduce y’all to Gabriel, my MAlt.  Because sometimes… ya need to indulge the animus.

 

The Autism Awareness Hunt runs until April 30th and will only cost you…0L per prize!
