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!

Searching for A Prince and Only Finding Frogs

Searching for A Prince
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! I’m happy you’re here. I have to tell you, I wish I’d payed closer attention to the Enchantment’s Frog Prince Hunt. It was suggested to me by a friend. Other than Aline’s cute “Purple is Pleasant” post, I hadn’t really paid attention until now. I know! Don’t scold me too harshly!  The good news is that the hunt runs until August 31st, so there’s still enough time to search for cute little frogs. The even better news is that the hunt is free. Find the frog, and pay zero linden to get your prize! That said, I picked a few personal favorite Frog Prince Hunt prizes to share with you.

The Kissing Frog – The cute little amphibian in Pru’s hands is part of the Frog Prince Hunt prize from The Cove. This animated pose has your avatar give this little guy a sweet kiss. I know I’ve kissed a few frogs in my time in hopes of finding a prince! This little frog is a lot cuter though. To get yours, head over to The Cove and search for the frog!

Hint – Bubble Bubble Toil and Trouble

The Ring – If you haven’t seen Disney’s “The Princess and The Frog” you need to! It’s one I’ve seen many times, and a genuine favorite of the more recent Disney animated movies. I mentioned this because the Frog Prince Hunt prize at Dahlia is clearly inspired by that movie. This pretty pearl ring is part of a set of 3 rings, two of which are shaped like fireflies. I’ll add a photo below of the vendor ad by Dahlia so you can get a look at the entire set. If you have seen the movie, you’ll also understand even more why I picked this adorable ring set as one of my favorites!

Hint – This Frog is Curious
Dahlia - Bayou - Evangeline - Ring Set - HUNT GIFT

The Firefly Headband – I like this Frog Prince Hunt prize by Lagom because it’s whimsical and pretty, and I feel whimsical and pretty wearing it. The cute little yellow “fireflies” do seem to glow in an almost enchanted way. The headband comes equipped with resize scripts for easy fitting. I don’t think any princess should be without it. Just like all the Enchantment Frog Prince Hunt prizes, this one from Lagom is free.

Hint – Through the Mist

Here are the details, enjoy!

I Don’t Think You’re Ready for This JellyRoll

Donut Float
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m back in the pool and loving it thanks to the Beached Bunny 8 Hunt. I picked up two of the BBH8 items to get pool-ready. The super cute swimsuit is from JellyRoll, and the fun doughnut float is from Harambee. I also picked up this cute summer hairstyle from Beusy. Keep reading for all the information on how to get your copy of these freebies and dollarbies. By the way, the hunt item is a little blue sand pail.

The Swimsuit – When I saw the little flamingos on the ad for this swimsuit by JellyRoll, I knew it was for me! If you’re not quite so excited about flamingos, the suit has a texture change hud with a blue and white tropical hibiscus print. This summer swimsuit is the 1 linden BBH8 hunt prize at JellyRoll. Also, there is an alpha layer included for classic avatars.

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs, s, m, l, xl), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Venus, Isis, Freya)

Hint: It’s too warm to wear this.

The Doughnut Float – I am honestly not really into eating sugary pink doughnuts with sprinkles, but when I see them in a non-edible form, I find them almost irresistibly cute.  This little gem of a pool float is another BBH8 dollarbie prize. You can hunt it down at Harambee. The float has several animated poses, one of which even has a cell phone prop. All the poses are adjustable, and the float gently turns while you relax. It also comes in 3 colors, the pink color shown, a blue version, and a lilac version.

Hint: Listen to your soul by playing the Talking Drums.

The Hair – I really like this double braid hairstyle from Beusy a lot. It’s a current free group gift and comes in a wide range of color options. There is also a stylist hud that lets you wear the hairstyle with or without the bangs, and with or without the little fly-away hairs over the ears. You can also adjust the size of this hairstyle by manually editing it. Right now the Beusy group is free to join, so don’t miss out on this adorable summer hairdo.

P.S. I’m not the only one here at Fab Free who has been doing some Beached Bunny Hunting. Just in case you’ve missed them, here are the other blog posts featuring items from the Beached Bunny Hunt 8.

Waiting for Christmas…

I lost my boots in a snow drift! Thankfully I have on my warm winter socks from Graffitiwear. Whew! These woolen beauties saved the day and are cozy too. And they come in sizes to fit…

  • TMP

They are a Christmas gift currently at the main-store. You’ll need your Graffitiwear group tag, but the group is only a mere 5L to join, and there are 3 other group gifts currently out to pick up, including a sweater and some stockings.

A Christmas Sweater

To top off my look, I hunted down the free Women Only Hunt prize from Pink Cream Pie. I was rewarded with this gorgeous sweater called the “Ugly Annie” sweater. How could they possibly call it ugly?! It’s amazing! It comes in sizes to fit Maitreya, Hourglass, Freya, and Isis.

Keep warm and cozy everyone!

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!

Beeeeeeeee Happy!

Beeeeee Happy

Mmmmm… a slice of watermelon in the middle of summer is just the thing! Pair it up with a cute free dress, and a great pair of sunglasses and the day can’t be beat! I put my hair up out of the way to make sure it didn’t get sticky. Let me tell you all about my look today!

This great pose!

I went to check out the Honey I Shrunk the Cart Sale and Hunt and went around and picked up as many of the hidden 2L Honey Drops as I could find. I’m showing off several of my 2L finds to you in this post! One of my favorite 2L gifts was this Watermelon Patch pose prop! It comes in two sizes. One for adults (shown) and one for kids! You’re sure to enjoy taking pictures with this terrific hunt prize!

Too cool for summer!

I love this cute butter colored dress. This cute minidress is by Crazy Pastry Designs and comes in lots of sizes.

Sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

I paired the dress with a great pair of blue “Zipper” sunglasses by Closet Full of Pancake. You can get a close-up of what these look like by clicking on the Flickr picture. One of the lenses has a “zipper” in it for a unique look!

Another Hair Fair visit.

I also couldn’t resist another visit to the Hair Fair. I knew I needed an updo to keep my hair out of the sticky yummy mess of my watermelon eating. Cheveux happily provided with their free gift! This hair gift is a mesh fatpack of colors and is cute as can be. I cam-shopped from the same spot I’ve been cam shopping from the last couple of times (I’m still finding lots of goodies there) and it was an easy to find booth. Remember to use this tip for selecting objects that are far away:

((Quick hint: to get maximum shopping benefit, if you are in firestorm viewer, go to preferences, firestorm tab [along the left side] then Build 2 [along the top tabs] and uncheck “limit select distance” and then click ok. This will allow you to select items from any distance as long as you can see it with your draw distance!))

Happy Hunting and Hair Fair shopping!

Oh My Stars!

Oh My Stars! 1

It’s 25L Tuesday! And If you stop by Lua’s today you can pick up the Alma dress (which in my opinion is a STUNNING gown in one of three colors — black, red or purple). This gown comes in all the standard mesh sizes for a terrific fit, is strapless, and has a mermaid style skirt that is just delectable. This is one to definitely add to your inventory! And for a mere 25L, why not pick up all three colors? I’m modeling it for you in black, today.

Oh My Stars! 2

To add a touch of class, I picked up the FREE Women’s Stuff Hunt gift from Stars! which is this lovely jewelry set called Fleur. This EXCLUSIVE Gift set includes the pretty pearl and red gem-ed necklace, earrings, and two bracelets. Just find the little red t-shirt and you are all set.

If you are an avid photographer and noticed my fantastic poses, you should stop by Belle Epoque today as well. This lovely creator is offering two pose packs for the 25L Tuesday special. I’m showing you two poses out of the “What You Do To Me” pose pack, but there is another Pose Pack up for 25L that is equally lovely.

Enjoy your Tuesday!
