“When other little girls wanted to be ballet dancers, I kind of wanted to be a vampire.”

– Angelina Jolie

Hello Fab Free! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Mine was pretty great, I feel refreshed and ready to take on the weekly grind. As for this post I have some Spookzilla finds, and a few October group gifts to share. First, I’m slightly obsessed with bats, which made these lounge shorts and matching top by 1 Hundred absolutely irresistible. I also picked up some pretty must-have makeup group gifts at Purple Beauty, and ghoulish confection group gift from Palette.

1 Hundred at Spookzilla

1 Hundred has 8 total hunt prizes at the Spookzilla event. You’ll need to hunt down the little ghosts from 1 Hundred hidden around the Spookzilla sim. I picked up the “Night Wing” shirt and the matching “Night Wing” shorts for just 10 linden each. The top says “moonlight” across the front and has a purple bat on the back. The shorts have a high slit on either side.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya. Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy

Purple Beauty

I’m a sucker for good makeup, BOM layers, appliers, I’ll wear them both. For me makeup is just a fun form of self expression. Purple Beauty has two beautiful group gifts available. One is a BOM layer eyeshadow set, and the other is a glittery gloss set in a Catwa HD applier. The colors in both sets are vibrant and beautiful on. The Purple Beauty group has a join fee of just 50 linden.

🌸 NEW GROUP GIFT

Palette

This “Vampire Milkshake” group gift at Palette manages to be gory and cute. It also ties in nicely with my very relatable Angelina Jolie quote at the top of the post. This ghoulish beverage comes with a bento hold pose for the right or left, and a display version. The cup says “Happy Halloween” with little bats, also I love the little bat chocolates on the top! You’ll need to join the “Leggy Mainstore Official” group which is the store group for Palette to claim this gift. The group has a join fee of just 10 linden.

Conversations with Herman

Conversations with Herman

Dogs really can be the best listeners, just look at how well Herman is paying attention! This sweet little pug pup was a surprise gift from my beau Blue. He knows how much I love fur babies, and these little pugs are irresistibly cute.

Herman (I named him after Herman Munster) comes from the JIAN Love Pugs gacha, which is currently just 25 lindens per play. There are 16 commons in this gacha set, and 3 rares. Like all gachas these Love Pugs at JIAN are transferrable, so you can gift them or trade them. I can’t think of a better gift then this furry little guy!

Before I settled down to chat with Herman, I did a little more hunting on the Women Only Hunt 6. There are so many good prizes to be had! For this look I wore the WOH6 hunt prize top from Nerido, the tattoo from Mister Razzor, and the necklace set from MIDNA. The Women Only Hunt 6 runs from now until June 30th. Keep reading and I’ll let you know about each of these fabulous hunt prizes.

Women Only Hunt 6 Hints & Surlshttps://flairforevents.wixsite.com/secondlife/women-only-hunt-designers

Nerido

My pretty rose-pink bustier style top is the WOH6 hunt prize at Nerido. It comes in 3 sizes (Maitreya, Legacy, Perky), and the single color shown. The best part? It’s absolutely free, you just have to find it!

HintLike in a reliable bank.

Mister Razzor

This floral mandala type black and grey tattoo is not only gorgeous, it’s also a free WOH6 prize at Mister Razzor. The Danica tattoo comes in Omega appliers, and BOM/Classic layers. You’ll also have the choice of wearing it at 50% or 75% opacity.

HintI love stuffed toys, toys, dolls, I’m a collector. Can you find me?

MIDNA

Both the necklaces I have on are included in the free WOH6 prize at MIDNA. These pretty necklaces are travel themed, which for me is just another reason to love them. They can be worn together or separately and include a customization hud. The hud will allow you to change the color of the metal, the beads/pearls, and the image/saying on the medallion. I chose the compass rose.

HintI got a pocket, a pocket full of sunshine.

I’d been dreaming of a seaside escape for weeks and Blue and I finally took a moment away from all the hustle and bustle of the real world and spent an entire day enjoying the sun, surf, and sand. For some extra fun, surf lessons. Blue took to the waves like a duck to water, while I was a little less certain! Either way, we still had an amazing time out at Kanaloa Surf Beach.

Before heading to the beach we picked up some new swimwear from MishMash Fusion. They have a set of his and hers swimsuits as their Surf into Summer Hunt prize. We also grabbed this surfboard with the tandem pose from Something New. It’s one of 2 the two poses included in the Surf into Summer Hunt prize at Something New. The Surf into Summer Hunt is running now through June 21st, and the prizes are just 2 lindens. Mahalo everyone for being here, and happy hunting!

White Swan

Stupid Cupid Hunt @ Mooh

Happy Weekend, Fab Free! I have a few fabulous freebies to share with you today which I used to put together this elegant look. I was trying to look like a graceful white swan sitting by a lake at Winter Moon. Swan Lake is one of my favourite stories and I am definitely feeling some fairytale vibes from these lovely free and 1L finds…

Mooh!’s Stupid Cupid Hunt Prize

When I first saw an advertisement for the hunt prize offered by Mooh! for Evil Bunny Hunt’s Stupid Cupid Hunt 8, it immediately reminded me of a swan! Like all of Mooh!‘s hunt items, I knew I had to have it!  So, I hunted away until I found the prize, and was I ever amazed! The dress is simply gorgeous, and it costs only 1 linden to buy. The “Becky Dress” comes in several colours and it has such a gorgeous texture- it really does look like it’s made out of lace and bird feathers. To get the dress, visit Mooh! and start hunting! The hint is: “Bears and pigs need love too!”.

Sizes

  • Belleza (Freya, Isis & Venus)
  • Maitreya
  • Slink (Physique & Hourglass)
  • Tonic (Fine & Curvy)
  • Fitmesh ( XXS, XS, S, M, L)

PUMEC’s Discounted Group & Retiring Gifts

PUME C currently has a huge sale on. The creator has decided to switch over to selling a new line of skin tones, so everything in the store is currently 50% off and the group is a whooping 75% off. The group costs only 99 Linden to join, until February 10th only (this Monday). The group normally costs 400 Linden to join. The current group gifts will be retiring forever after February 10th as well, so join before then and grab them all ASAP before it is too late! The PUME C group has so much to offer! They have high quality skins and mesh ears as group gifts and if you join before February 10th, you can have all their past gifts and be in the running for all future gifts, so it is a win-win! How can you possibly resist?

I am currently wearing one of their past group gifts which I got by joining their group for this low, limited-time group join fee. This is the March Gift #1 made for Genus heads, and it is a stunning skin (and Pru showed it to you previously HERE) , as are all of the PumeC group gifts which are shortly retiring, so get in on this discounted group join offer now!

Leigh Valentine’s Hunt- Triskele Jewelry Set

Ms. Fabulous recently wrote the cutest blog post about the hunt going on at Leigh right now. After hearing that there were two completely free items on the hunt, I decided to find them! The last accesories I added to my  outfit are the “triskele necklace and earrings” and I think they go perfectly with my white swan look. The necklace sparkles beautifully, and this jewelry set is one of the free items on the hunt. The specific hunt location can be reached here.

Have a wonderful weekend, Fab Free!
xx

Konnichiwa



Konnichiwa

Konnichiwa Fab Free! I have to say I’ve been having so much fun with the Asian theme of the Medieval Fantasy Hunt. The prizes have given me lots of inspiration. I’m also enjoying the mix of traditional themes with modern style. For today’s post I’m wearing the female MFH prize at Mishmash Fusion. It’s a short modern dress with a bit of Japanese flair to the cut and fabric. There’s a male prize also, which you can check out in the vendor photo below. The MFH is a free hunt, so this pretty prize won’t cost anything. All you have to do is find it!

The Ringmaster & His Apprentice


The Ringmaster and his Apprentice

Hello Fab Free, step right up! The Ringmaster and his lovely apprentice welcome you to the circus, or more accurately, the blog! You guessed it, I’ve teamed up with that man of mine again to bring you some fabulous finds. This time we did a bit of the Jester’s Revenge Hunt and picked up the male and female hunt prizes at Mishmash. The Jester’s Revenge Hunt is a free hunt, and it lasts until April 30th.

Though definitely not your typical everyday wear, I thought these free matching outfits by Mishmash were a lot of fun. They would be great for roleplay, or themed parties. Each of the outfits is a separate prize. You’ll be hunting a little gold nugget. Both outfits come in several sizes. The men’s suit also includes an alpha layer.

Men’s Sizes Included: Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza Jake, Signature Gianni, Slink Male, TMP, Standard Mesh (xs-XL)

Women’s Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, TMP, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

M Hint – Zilla has a joke for you

F Hint – Perhaps I can give you a hand

P.S. Make sure you check out Blue’s credits for some freebie finds for the guys!

Here are the details!

Happy When it Rains


Happy When it Rains

Hi Fab Free! Thank you for being here. Have you noticed all the hunts happening? It seems to me there are quite a few. I did a little bit of the Save Earth Hunt, and wanted to share two of the gifts with you. The Save Earth Hunt is a grid-wide dollarbie hunt. Each prize is just 1 linden, and the hunt object is a pink rosebud. The dress, and the animated umbrella Pru is having a ball with are both 1 linden SEH prizes. Keep reading for all the extra information!

The Umbrella – I thought this fun umbrella prop by Orphic for the Save Earth Hunt was just too cute to not share with you. It comes in a day version (shown) and a night version (not shown). By clicking the handle of the umbrella you can turn the rain particle effect on or off. Clicking the top part of the umbrella will let you start or stop the animated pose. This playful hunt prize is just 1 linden, so don’t miss out!

Hint – “Try for the Hi-Score”

The Dress – The patchwork and denim sundress Pru has on is by Freda. This style dress just screams happy warm sunshine days in my opinion. Also, I think it would be just as cute with almost any type of shoe you wanted to wear with it. The dress is another dollarbie Save Earth Hunt prize. It is mesh and comes in quite a few sizes. Also included are standard/classic mesh sizes and an alpha layer for classic non-mesh avatars. Don’t miss this adorable dollarbie!

Sizes Included: Classic Mesh (xs- XL), Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Ocacin, Ebody, Maitreya Lara

Hint “Help Freda sewing in the back of the shop and you will find your gift beside the sewing machines.”

Hunting at Ostara


Ostara 2

Hello Fabulous Fab Free’rs! Thank you as always for being here. The Ostara’s Altar event just recently started, and part of the event includes a 5 linden hunt. Each of the shops has an Ostara Hunt egg hidden somewhere on the event grounds. The term hidden should be used loosely though, considering many of the shops have placed their egg within plain sight. A few shops also have multiple hunt prizes. Each of these hunt gifts will cost you a mere 5 linden. For this post I picked out three of the many prizes to share with you. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Floral Headband – There’s something inherently springtime about flowers in your hair. Since Ostara is in spring, this floral headband by Oubliette makes the perfect accessory. It’s their 5L hunt item at the Ostara’s Altar event. There are no scripts, so it’s also low-lag, and it’s mod so it can be manually sized.

Nose Stud – The little spiked nose-stud Pru is wearing is another 5L Ostara’s Altar hunt prize. This one is by Neverwish, and it comes with a silver version, and the “galaxy” version that is shown. This piercing also appears to be free of scripts and can be manually sized.

Earrings – I love the delicate look of these gold earrings by PKC which stands for Purrrrfect Kitties Creations. They too are another of the many 5 linden Ostara’s Altar hunt prizes. These earrings do have resize scripts that allow you to custom fit them. The script even includes a poser to help your avatar stand still without the need of a pose stand.

Here are the details:

Headband – Oubliette– Flora Headband – 5L Hunt Prize @Ostara’s Altar
Hair – TRUTH VIP Joy – Past VIP Group Gift *Originally Blogged Here 
Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento
Skin – Essences – Vanya
Earrings – Purrrrfect Kitties Creations – Jojo Earrings – 5L Hunt Prize @Ostara’s Altar
Nose Stud – Neverwish – *NW* Nose Spike – Galaxy and Silver – 5L Hunt Prize @Ostara’s Altar

Hunt Nevermore

Nevermore
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Happy Sunday-funday! So I’m sure you’ve noticed, I’ve been into the hunts happening around the grid lately. There are so many! Today I have some Nevermore hunt prizes I’m excited to share with you. The Nevermore hunt is a dollarbie hunt, so all the prizes are just 1 linden. As I am sure you guessed by the name of the hunt, many of the gifts are loosely Edgar Allen Poe or “The Raven” themed. The hunt item you’ll be searching for is a paper letter.

The Circlet – I’m a sucker for a pretty circlet. I think they should be an everyone kind of fashion accessory, and not just for witches and elves. Though I’ve been called one of those! hah. This particular moon and star dangle circlet is the 1L Nevermore hunt gift at Harambee. It comes in 3 color/metal versions and has resize scripts.

Hint – Search the inSanity shop.

The DressTrashed put out this sexy little dress as their Nevermore hunt prize. Like all the Nevermore hunt gifts, this one is just 1 linden. It comes in several mesh sizes, in the single purple fabric with black details version shown.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass) Standard Mesh (s,L), eBody

Hint – A love letter left at table height for you to find at midnight

The Boots – Believe it or not these Spotlight boots are black! They have such a high shine to the texture that it gives them the almost silver metallic look shown in the photo. These sassy stiletto lace-up boots come in several sizes for mesh avatars. They are also Spotlight’s 1 linden Nevermore hunt prize.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)

Hint – Light a candle, or two, or three. 

The Furniture –  I kinda love this furniture set from Kitty Creations. It might even become a permanent setting in my own personal space. This full set including the cuddle bench, leather ottoman with drinks, rug (not shown), and birdcage with a raven are all part of the dollarbie Nevermore hunt gift from Kitty Creations.

Hint – Find a place to sail away and nevermore be seen.

Here are the details, happy hunting!
