The Secrets of Second Life

The Secrets of Second Life
Sometimes Second Life can toss out some downright weird things at you.  I’m sure you all have a list of odd things you’ve seen and experienced inworld that are not necessarily repeatable in a PG-13 kind of environment.  Or really, any environment… If you’re not a resident of SL, it’s hard to describe some of the things that are normal to us denizens of the grid.  Sometimes though, you get to participate in something entirely weird but super fun.  And that’s what I’m about to share today!

I’m Sorry…WHAT are we looking for?

Our friends over at Second Life Syndicate are celebrating their 3rd Anniversary in the most THEM way possible – a hunt for cute little poops in a sewer.  Yeap, you heard me!  When SLS is putting together an event, you can always expect it to be something a little out of the ordinary.  There’s a massive sewer maze set up right now, and if you walk around looking for the little poops, each one contains a completely free gift.  Here’s what I found:

  • FREE Lingerie by Varonis sized for Maitreya
  • FREE Backdrop by Varonis
  • FREE Stool by Fetch

By the way, when you’re at the starting point of the maze, you can also pick up some very on-theme and completely free poop scoopers that may just make you feel a bit better about picking up scat.  You never know!

Happy Anniversary Second Life Syndicate!

This post is filled with great deals that will help you achieve this fantastical owl look, so read further for the details! This post is chock full of freebies, so dig in for the free and magical fun my friends! 🦉

Free Gifts @ Fantasy Faire

In this post, I am focusing on freebies you can find at Fantasy Faire 2021. I had to hunt hard to find these, as the event is massive- 22 sims in total! I will break down down some of free gifts I found at the Faire below.

  • The gorgeous owl mask is a free gift at Spyralle’s booth. Grab this little guy for 0L on the wall. This was a hard one to find, but it is so beautiful and intricate. What an amazing gift!
  • This beautiful hairstyle is a free gift at Firelight’s shop at the Faire. This hair is so cool, because it changes colour every minute to a different natural tone! There is also a free men’s hair gift in their booth!
  • The amazing shimmer on my body is a generous free gift from Ghoul. Just enter into their store at Valhalla and grab this gift in the middle of their display. This crystal shimmer is a materials applier that works on Legacy and Maitreya bodies only, as well as Lelutka Evolution heads. This applier can be used on Male and Female avatars.

  •  Belle Epoque has a set of nails hidden in an object in their store at the Faire for free. Click the statue for the hint, and go hunt for it! The prize is a beautiful set of purple nails that work on Legacy and Maitreya bodies.

The Language of the Birds

Another way to hunt down some great deals at Fantasy Faire is to participate in their “Language of the Birds” hunt quest. Please read Juli’s post here to find out more details about how to play the Fantasy Faire Quest Hunt. By purchasing the quest HUD (it costs 250 L for the basic or 350L for the deluxe*), you are able to participate in the quest. The HUD can be purchased at Fantasy Faire Junction. If you solve the quest, you will receive a reward in the form of a bunch of gifts from various Fantasy Faire designers. The quest gift I am showing today is a set of beautiful floral horns made by EscalateD. These look like little floral branches that a little bird would stop to rest on!

The Quest hunt and the free gifts will be available until May 9th, the closing day of Fantasy Faire.

The Fairlands Quest is live!

Other Freebies and Offers

My look today is packed with additional freebies and offers from various places around the grid, so here are some more offers I am showing off today:

  • LSR currently has a 300L credit gift for all LSR group members. The group costs 99L to join. I bought this amazing dress I’ve had my eyes on for a while now.

School Day

School Day

Hey hey, FabFree! Ya know Elfs and unicorns go together like peanut butter and jelly. Like cheese and crackers. Like chocolate and milk…. Like…. Okay, I might be hungry…   But let’s talk unicorns. I do love the magical critters and when I found a Hunt dedicated to them, I knew I was gonna jump on it!  Tons of cute stuff on this Hunt and it’s “family friendly” so those of you with SL wee ones are going to want to check it out too.

This entire outfit, from head to toe, is the 1L prize from a new-to-me designer – The Dismal Peacock. Yes, the name made me chuckle, too.  You get the ‘Unicorn School” tee shirt, the jeans and the cute pink and white sneakers all as one prize. Plenty of fit options and a solid build means this will be a good addition to your closet!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

And while you’re spending that 1L for a new casual outfit, save one Linden for a gorgeous new hair style! This is ‘Instant Crush’ from Exile and you will find it for 1L on the Market Place. That one little Linden will get you all the colors and two versions of the hair. One that is regular mesh and one that is ‘Bento’. Which means it moves with a little sway when you move. Pretty cool!

Beautiful Monster

Coming Soon

I do love creating dark looks on occasion. I wanted to capture a “beautiful monster” look here. On my travels today, I also discovered a beautiful dark sim called Legion of Immortals.

Garner Some Attention

This sexy and dark outfit is a 25L hunt prize at Short Leash & ATCSL’s 3rd Birthday Hunt. The set includes the pasties and the outfit. This is one of 5 packs to find on the hunt. This pack comes with red and orange decoration on the ruffles, and the other packs come in a variety of colours that you can see in the hunt key below. The base colour for the pasties and the outfit, however, is black. I can confirm that this outfit definitely garners some attention! The Short Leash & ATCSL’s 3rd Birthday Hunt ends on April 25th, so go grab this sexy set before it’s gone for good!

Sizes Included

  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Lara

Decorative Horns

These horns are really beautiful. They include the horns themselves, decorative dangling jewelry, and a colour change hud. These are a new release that you can pick up at Dark Side 6. Just walk up to EscalateD’s booth and these babies are yours for only 10 Linden!

Black Lips

I realize this may be an older freebie, but I needed to find a perfect black lipstick for this outfit, and Izzie’s had the trick. These amazing lips have been updated to BOM for a variety of heads and styles, and the classic BOM fit my Genus head perfectly. You can grab this lipstick for free (no group required) at Izzie’s main store.

Appliers Included

  • Catwa
  • Genus
  • LAQ
  • Omega
  • LeLutka

The last item I have to share today is the beautiful crime eyeshadows, which are a group gift at Ives. The group costs 99L to join. This item comes in BOM layers only and they are gorgeous.

For the Love of Flowers!

Coming Soon to Fab Free

I am a big fan of floral clothing. This is the time of year when all the floral patterns start to pop up in the stores and nothing makes me happier!

Annie

This lovely bun is the latest group gift at Mina. The hairstyle comes with options to add and remove the bangs, and to attach and remove the done-up bun at the back. It’s a lovely hairstyle! The Mina VIP group costs 200L to join.

The Dress of Many Patterns!

This dress I have on has many different floral and spring patterns, and it only costs 1 L on the Hop Along Hunt 4. You can pick this hunt prize up at Ari-Pari. The hint to find the prize is: “find where the waterfalls are underneath the vines of ivy.” I love how the petals fall on this pattern of the dress- they look like they are alive because the texture is so realistic. All other photos of prizes and hints for the Hop Along Hunt 4 can be found here.

Sizes Included

  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Isis

[Ari-Pari] Belinda Spring Dress

Aurora

I even bought some matching floral sandals called Aurora Sandals at Pure Poison which cost only 38 L in their outlet with the free group tag active. I’ve been eyeing these sandals for a while, because you have the option to change the colour of the petals separately from the sandal straps. What a great deal this is! I have included the vendor photo below so you can see what the whole sandal looks like.

Sizes Included

  • Lara

Something about Spring

Something about Spring

Hey there, FabFree. Are you into the Spring season yet? I know some of our readers are actually going into Autumn so all of our Spring weather ramblings must sound sorta out of place. But… ya gotta grow where you’re planted and right now that means Spring in all it’s glory.

The Grid is celebrating Spring with a ton of Spring themed Hunts. Today’s hunt included a very nice men’s shirt and jeans so I grabbed my Gabriel and off we went. The Hop Along Hunt was a fun quick Hunt over at MystRie and it netted us both these snazzy Spring outfits.

My maxi dress, “Softly Spring’ is a lovely wash of watercolors with pale pinks and a floral pattern. It looks like something I’d have in my real life closet! Beautifully made, it’s the perfect addition to my SL closet. 

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Mesh – S – L
  • Maitreya
  • TMP
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Gabriel’s knit sweater over a dark gray collared shirt is just different enough to be eye catching. And I love the pale lavender color. Who says guys can’t wear pastel? The prize includes a pair of jeans as well (Not Shown)

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature – Geanni
  • SLink Male

Hey There FabFree! Welcome to another week of freebies and Hunts and us girls ( And Gabe! 😉 workin’ hard to get you the awesome-ness on the cheap! I hope everyone had a lovely Easter and y’all are enjoying the chocolate being on sale. I, personally, am enjoying all these great new Hunts taking off all over the Grid. 

I am hunting a new hunt for me this Monday: The Cheeky Monkey Hunt.  I had a chuckle over the name then saw allllll the great prizes and grabbed my hunting shoes and took off.  My favorite has to be this gorgeous corset plus skirt from Blonde Queen.

This is the “Spring Roses Corset” and you can have it for just a little hunting and one little Linden. Now this might look like a very short dress… but that’s only from the front. It puts the cheeky in the Cheeky Monkey Hunt, if ya know what I mean.  Still, it such a lovely piece I’m saving it for those times with my special someone.
