Follow the White Rabbit

Hello hello, FabFree Folks! I hope the weekend has treated you well both in RL and SL.  I finally had some time to try a Hunt I’d had my eye on today: The White Rabbit Hunt from Fun with Hunts. I think y’all might like a few of the things I found.

BFFair2jpg_002

This first look is the mini dress from Fi’s Creations. As always, Fi’s has set out a fantastic hunt prize. I love the flirty hem line and the soft summery colors. It goes perfectly with the Checkered nails from La Boheme for SLink hands and feet. You get the mani and pedi in the white checks and another mani and pedi with black checks.

I had so much fun the other day tooling around SL with Gabriel, I thought I’d let him out to play again. This is the Black Cross Eli shirt and the Black Cross Cole jeans from Man Stuff by Firelight Creations.

The Evil Queen & The Good Queen

The Evil Queen

Throughout fantasy, fairy tales, and folklore the struggle between good and evil has always been at the heart of many tales. Two of the Recolors of Spring Hunt gifts at Apple May Designs hint at such stories, the Evil Queen dress, and the Good Queen dress. Inspired by the dresses at AMD and my own love of fantasy, I am excited to share with you an Evil Queen, and a Good Queen. I hope you like them as much as I do!

The Evil Queen’s dress is one of 4 female 1 linden Recolors of Spring Hunt prizes hidden around the Apple May Designs main location. I love that the dress has a fitted bodice and a short full skirt. In my opinion this silhouette is perfect for a fantasy look. The red and black fabric has a satin-like look to it, and I had no problem wearing this fully mesh dress with my Maitreya Lara body. The Evil Queen dress comes in standard sizes and includes a matching alpha layer.

Today only, Glam Affair has out a pack of three gorgeous skins for 50 lindens as their Fifty Linden Friday item. One of these skins I thought was perfect for my vision of the Evil Queen. The Sia skin in the India tone with her dark red lips is just stunning on and has the right combination of beauty and drama. Not as into this skin as I am? There’s bound to be one you will enjoy between the three tones (India, America, and Artic). Not to mention that at just 50 lindens for all 3, you kinda can’t go wrong!

Here are the Evil Queen’s Details, Enjoy!

The Good Queen

While I’m generally more inclined toward the darker fantasy characters, I have to admit I love this interpretation of the Good Queen. I envisioned something a little ethereal and I think I achieved such a look. I hope you love it!

Just like the Evil Queen, the Good Queen’s dress is a 1 linden RSH prize at Apple May Designs. This version is a beautiful white material with the same satin-like look and faint pattern of the black and red Evil Queen version. These dresses really are lovely on. For some diversity (and because I had the right skin appliers) I wore my Slink Physique body with the dress, and again had no issue. This dress also comes in standard sizes and can be worn using the provided alpha layer.

Additionally, I picked up some gorgeous past group gifts at NSP Florals. There are many gifts still available at NSP Florals, one of which is this enchanting Lady Gwynevere headdress in Sublime Mint. The headdress is a past FREE group gift that can still be found in the NSP Florals/MUSE VIP Room. The NSP Florals group is just 75 lindens to join, and you gain instant access to all the available gifts. Another beautiful FREE gift at NSP Florals are these lovely heels. Called the Peony Stilettos, these fantastic shoes are meant to be worn with Slink High feet. Also, they can be worn with or without the flower and crystal embellishment. Again, you’re able to get the shoes and the headdress at NSP Florals with just one group join fee of 75 lindens, not to mention the slew of other equally awesome gifts!

Here are the details for the Good Queen, Enjoy!

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.

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

Curiouser and Curiouser

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!

Follow the Yellow Brick Road

I have another fast post today, FabFree Folks.  Normally I wouldn’t make a post when a Hunt only has a day or two left. However, the Wizard of OZ themed, Holi Hunt is a different sort of thing. This is a super fun little Hunt and I think you’ll enjoy it too. Oh and it’s a 0L Hunt as well!

holi_001

When you arrive at the Holi Hunt start, you tap the sign and will receive a note card with all the instructions and a little tray… that you wear on your head.  Then take a wander around the Oz themed area and pick up little pots of pigments. You just click the pots and they appear on the tray. When you have six pots of colors  a menu will pop up asking you which shop you want the prize from.  Then just follow the yellow brick road to Munchkin land where the shops are and pick up your prize!

Holi2jpg_001

First up is the ‘Holi Dress’, this candy colored retro confection is from Kata0nik. I love the shape of the sundress not to mention it’s in my favorite purple! I topped off my outfit with the ‘Butterfly Hair Bow’ from Half Deer. I always find nifty things from Half Deer but this is just too cute!

 

The Holi Hunt only runs until April 17th so go check it out quick! Your Taxi to the Holi Hunt Start!

Into the great Unknown

Good evening, FabFolks!  One of the fun things about Second Life is discovering new designs! And that what the Unknown Hunt is all about.  This is a 0L hunt to showcase only new designers who opened shop in 2014 or 2015.

Into the great Unknown

This is the ‘Rebecca Slate’ dress and heels from GeMyles Couture. This racy little cocktail dress comes with a matching pair of heels for SLink High Feet featuring the same golden floral design as the dress.

Into the great Unknown

Next is a cute floral sundress from Sweet Tea Couture. The mesh dress comes in five standard sizes. I just love the retro feel of the black and white and red floral print.

Did you like my new hair? This is the April group gift from Soonsiki called Soul. Soonsiki has done it again and made a style that is bright and shiny and just gorgeous. If you missed the last gifts don’t fret. They are still available in the main store. ( Soonsiki is not part of the Unknown Hunt)

The Unknown Hunt runs until April 30th and features 43 stops!  Happy Hunting!
