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

Purr, Purr: Preparing for Valentine’s Day Kitty Style

 

Purr, Purr: Preparing for Valentines' Day Kitty Style

I know it’s a bit early for Valentine’s day, and some of you may be either super excited about V-day or dreading it, but this group gift from Candy Kitten has gotten me in the mood for love and romance! It’s the “call me baby dress” with the “LOVE” HUD made especially for Candy Kitten VIP members. It includes patterns of hearts, kisses and pink polka dot patterns- it’s perfect for the upcoming month of February. Right now, you can grab this group gift in their main store, as well as the wonderfully cute “Dolly Heels” I am wearing and the simple panties fatpack I am hiding underneath! The heels and the panties also come with a colour hud, which you can use to change the colour of the frills and the bows on the heels. 

Candy Kitten VIP

Candy Kitten has wonderful offers, group gifts and giftcards that rotate regularly. Their VIP group costs 200 Linden to join, but the perks are totally worth it! Group members have access to exclusive gifts, gift cards which are given out on holidays and special occasions, and a weekly 1,000 L raffle board.  As the group gifts regularly change in the Candy Kitten group, go quickly to grab these gifts and make sure to regularly check the group’s notices for future freebies!

Sleepy Kitty

I’m also snuggled up on the new bed I got from Merak as a group gift, which you can claim for free with their free group. The bed is available in both adult and PG options to meet your needs. I’m a happy kitty curled up in my bed with these finds!

Have fun freebie hunting, Fab Free!

Hey FabFree!

Happy Tuesday! I woke up in a mood today and decided what the heck, I am going to get all dressed up and be pretty for ME! I found this super snug stretchy pencil dress from CoCo Designs! The berry-red color of this dress is absolutely stunning, pair it with some bright red lips and maybe some red pumps, you’ll be turning head for sure. It’s a simple dress, which I happen to love, because that just opens the box for creativity and uniqueness. The CoCo Designs in-world group, is free to join and there is an entire wall full of free gifts!

Coco Designs- Stretch Tube Dress Sizing:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink & Hourglass
  • Belleza- Freya & Isis

I just couldn’t find a pretty enough spot to show off the dress, so I wandered around from Sim to Sim, until I stumbled onto Why Not? The minute I saw this Gazebo, I knew it was just what I was looking for. However, my excitement didn’t stop here, because it is their group gift this month! The Why Not? in-world group is also free to join, you have to pay the vendor $1L, but is is given right back to you. This Gazebo is absolutely beautiful!

Don’t forget to sport those group tags, to receive those gifts!!

The Chair…

Braver than you Believe_001

I stopped by to visit my friend, the one I mention frequently and who’s furniture I envied in my post {HERE}. (I’m pretty sure you can still get that table and screen and decor if you’re a member of the L’Homme group by the way.) And he had out a chair that I had to try out. Then he informs me he got it as a free gift at an event where almost every booth has a free gift out! Of course I demanded a shopping excursion. Was it too much that I asked him to hold my purse? (Good thing I don’t usually carry a purse in Second Life).

The Chair…

So we made our way to “Shop ‘Till You Drop” and I ooo’ed and ahhh’ed at all the displays of wonderful shopping pleasures. I picked up free gifts as my shopping buddy hemmed and hawed (because of course he’d already been there and got all the goods).

But he was patient and I got my much awaited free gift chair by Chic Buildings! It has seven great poses and is low prim too! I’m showing off the pose called “monkey” in the picture above. You don’t even need a group for the free gifts at the event. Just buy the gifts that are out for 0L!

Another POE gift!

Serena showed you a gorgeous free POE Hunt gift from Prism in her post {HERE} but there are two (yes two!) POE Hunt gifts at Prism if you look! The second one is this dress I’m modeling called Sparkles by Journey. You can pick it up as part of the Hunt for free too! It has a sparkly gold turtleneck collar and sexy split sides and includes a color change hud for versatility!

Dress body compatibility included:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Relax… and visit a friend.

Visiting a Friend!

This is a good time of year for catching up with friends. I was visiting a friend’s house this morning and I fell in love with some furniture he had out… this room divider and table. It turned out that he got it as a free group gift for the L’Homme Readers Group. Well I was all excited and wanted the gift for myself!

A trip to get my own…

So we took a trip to UnKindness, my friend kindly escorted me, and I picked up the free UnKindness Bamboo Hall Set for myself. It does come with decor but I like it just topped with a plant myself. I did include a vendor advertisement picture at the bottom of this post so you can see everything that is included in this great free gift. All the pieces are just 1 prim each so this is very low land impact and practical for setting out!

A new sweater too!

After seeing Love and Carson sporting their matching sweaters in their blog post {here} my friend and I decided we wanted those exact same sweaters. So we took a teleport to NUTS Inc to pick up the free POE Hunt prize there so we had something to lounge about the house in. We were pleasantly surprised to see that there were matching ladies and men’s group gift sweaters out at the store too that were just as nice! The NUTS Inc group is only 5L to join and if you take your fella along, you can both have a matching sweater like the one I’m wearing in the picture above. I really like the classic colors and warm feel.

Sweater sizes available:

  • Classic Mesh XXS – L with Alpha
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Witchy Woman

Witchy Woman

“Only one more day,” I cackled. “That’s all that’s left of the hunt! Just enough time for our readers to get these goodies if they hurry! Now be a good witch and get them while they’re hot!” But hurry! The Once Upon a Nightmare Hunt ends October 31st and then all the free hunt gifts will be gone!

A hat for me!

Check out this cute witch’s hat by Safira! And it’s free too as part of the Once Upon a Nightmare Hunt! It’s a little hard to see, but if you look close there is a ribbon trailing down the back. It goes across the headband of the hat and is color change with 20 color options. The hat itself also changes too! 20 color options for that hat. How cool is that!

All harnessed up!

I also made a hunt stop at The Forge. I wasn’t sure what to expect as I hunted down the Once Upon a Nightmare box at this store. When I got home and unpacked my box I was pleasantly surprised with this black harness to fit a Maitreya body (it only comes in Maitreya fit) with little dotted skulls decorating the harness. It strategically covers all the naughty spots so that you can safely travel to pg areas. Again this is a free gift for your hunting time!

A place to sit!

I love Roawenwood hunt gifts, and their free Once Upon a Nightmare Hunt gift is no exception. This set of hay bales, one is decor and one is for sitting, comes in at only 6 prims total and is perfect for sitting outside in the fall weather.

Happy Hunting!
