A modern twist

Good afternoon, FabFree readers,

a modern twist

I almost missed out on one of the very best Hunts going on in Second Life. The Twisted Hunt: Divination only runs until September 30th but the prizes are well worth the hurry. This is the ‘Modern Celtic Jacket’ from Goth 1c0 and it’s one such prize. The beautifully built jacket with hood comes in the standard mesh sizes XS-XL and has a good alpha layer. The hood with the rather hawkish look to it, is part of the jacket itself. There is also a lovely lady’s gift hidden at Goth 1c0 as well. But, as I said, the Hunt only lasts until the 30th so don’t delay.

I remain most sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture

Hello there to all you Fabulously Free readers! I’m Sheidey (but please just call me Edi) and I enjoy mulling over hunt hints, slapping midnight mania boards and long walks on the beach especially if they lead to a Kraken-themed unlucky dip. Truth be told, I hemmed and hawed a little over what to feature on my first post of this wonderful blog. Wings? No. Dress and boots combination? Maybe for later. Broken unicycle? Wait. How did that get into my inventory?

Mysteries aside, I finally settled on the hunt that’s running concurrently with the Fluffy and Fierce event. If the ‘cute with an edge’ look is right up your alley then hop on down to the event and pick up the hunt hint notecards from some of the participating merchants. The hunt item is hidden in their respective main stores so while you’re hunting you can get distracted by all sorts of lucky letters, group gifts, weasels, etc etc…It’s so much fun!

The outfit pictured is the Bring It On batwing set from Blasphemic that comes in five mesh sweater sizes and system layer ripped leggings with an Omega applier as well as appliers specific to popular mesh bodies. It also includes a studded belt that comes with a resizer hud. I love the laid back look and feel of the outfit and paired it up with a pair of boots that I got off the Midnight Mania board at Psychotic Neko. I do believe that it’s the first set of boots in my Second Life closet to have claws. Definitely made for walking.

To tie the whole look together, I’m wearing the Cella hair from Damselfly that you can get for free at the Crossroads event and the new group gift from WoW Skins called Angy. The simple hairstyle and fresh-faced skin just adds to the casual factor of the whole outfit. It was a lot of fun putting this look together and I hope you had fun reading my first post just as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Sweet Memories

Snapshot_005
With all of the excitement going on this weekened with the Designer 2.0 program launch and the opening of the new Fabulously Free in SL Info Hub, I wasn’t sure if I would be able to sneak a post in, but I am glad I found a little bit of time to share this bit of news!

My Caboodle Shaleen Dress in the blue floral print (available in mesh XXS-L sizes) can be found as a free Getsuga Sim Hunt prize along with the ATTIC Elfman Vintage Camera shown.  There are a few different stores  participating and I believe there are 12 prizes in total, but you can find this information along with an example of the hunt icon at the landing point at the Getsuga Sim! All prizes are free and this hunt will run until the 16th of September.

Another thing I wanted to mention is the Glam Affair Skin Applier called Viktoria that I am wearing today on my Catwa Helena Mesh Head.  I picked this beautiful applier up in an asia skin tone (normally lighter than I usually wear, but I really like it!) on Friday for 50L as a Fifty Linden Friday offer and I just checked before publishing this post (Sunday night) to make sure it is still there for anyone who may still be interested.  This is a time sensitive offer and may not be available.

It’s Fear The Walking Dead night – Gotta run!

No Secrets

Good afternoon, FabFree .

secret

As we move into September, a whole new plethora of Hunts have opened up to us. And with them, a new offering of nearly free prizes to be won. Shh! It’s a Secret is quickly becoming one of my go to designers on these hunts and it hasn’t disappointed me this time. This is the Pea Coat set and it’s the 1L prize for the ‘Stuff and Things’ Hunt. This generous prize includes the tailored pea coat, the shirt, the scarf and the jeans. Each piece, excluding the shirt, can be worn and sized separately. The standard mesh sizes XS-XL are included in the prize.  It’s a nice coming into Fall look for a little searching and one small linden.

The Stuff and Things Hunt runs until September 30th.

I remain most sincerely yours,

Apple Picking Time

Apple Picking Time

It’s apple picking time! And I love this windblown looking hairstyle that says “fall” that you can pick up right now at KoKoLoReS FREE for September if you hurry! That’s because right now through September 15th, the join fee is waived. You can join the group for FREE and pick up this beautiful style in a fatpack of colors for this month’s group gift.

For just 1L I also hunted down Moolala’s contribution to the Fall Tears Hunt. It is this pretty outfit called Mercury which includes the shorts and bandana style top. You’ll get all the standard sizes plus fitmesh sizes to fit Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink.

Home From Work

Home From Work

When I saw that there was a hunt dedicated to work, working, and various jobs, I was really thrilled on a number of levels. I know that often there are contests in Second Life where you dress up to fit various themes of employment, but also I felt that this was a great opportunity for Second Life designers to show solidarity for unsung heroes. I was not disappointed. The hunt was full of wonderful things to celebrate jobs of all walks of life.

In the end, I decided to showcase this 1L nurse’s uniform from Blade & Rain. It is a one-piece mesh outfit that comes in all the standard sizes and includes a good alpha layer. What I appreciate most about it, is that it’s “real” nursing wear instead of the “sexy nurse” outfits you usually see. I really admire those who are hard at work in the medical field and it’s nice to have this option available for contests, cosplay, or what-have-you and for only 1L this is a great opportunity to pick up a great working outfit.

The Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It’s Off to Work I Go Hunt ends on Sept 16, so be sure to get out there and hunt down the goodies before it’s over!

Games

Good Morning, FabFree Readers.

Games

Most of the Hunts on the grid are winding down with today being the last day of August. But a few are starting up now, such as the Games of Thrones Hunt in Westeros. This hunt is slightly different in that there are multiple prizes in multiple hunt objects. One hunt object is at the designers main shop while the other prizes are scattered around a central “fair”.  I was able to find this men’s denim jacket with attached hoodie and shirt from “It’s Gau!” at the main fair area for 1L. This is “Jeans Jacket” and it comes in the standard mesh sizes XS-XL and has a good alpha layer. Be sure to pick up the note card that is offered when you land at the fair. It has all the pictures and clues for the Hunt prizes.

The Game of Thrones Hunt in Westeros runs until September 7th.

I remain most sincerely yours,

Fine Filly

Fine Filly

You only have today and tomorrow left to hunt down the great prizes on the Women’s Stuff Hunt ! As I was running around like crazy picking up little red teeshirts and I found this wonderful casual set from Artic Storm. This is the ‘Filly’ crop top and jeans and it’s the free prize at the main Artic Storm location at the Wash. Filly comes in FitMesh sizes XS-XL and has separate alpha layers for both top and bottom. There are also appliers for Maitreya, Belleza and SLink mesh bodies. I really love the embroidery details on the top and the jeans look great. Just remember, the Women’s Stuff Hunt ends on the 31st so hurry hurry!

Make Me

Make Me

I’m feeling lazy this morning so I stayed in for a soak. Luckily I have the perfect hunt if you don’t feel like teleporting around to different shops. Have you tried the Marketplace Hunt yet? I found this gorgeous bodysuit from Alpha Female that I had to share with you. It’s called “Make Me” and after putting it on, you certainly can’t make me take it off this morning😉

A little hunting on the marketplace and 5L is all this bodysuit will cost you. You’ll get a system layer as well as appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink mesh bodies. It’s a well made outfit in black and gold for a classic look.

Be sure to hurry, this hunt ends tomorrow, August 28th!

Your Friday Hunt Report

openhighwayhuntGood Morning Fabulous Fans! The end of summer isn’t far off, but there’s still time to participate in some super hunts.

Too tired to actually run around in Second Life? You might want to try the Marketplace Hunt. It takes place entirely on the Marketplace. You just have to look through each online store to find the item that’s only L$5. With 44 stops, that’s a lot of very reasonable shopping.

I love road trip movies, so I’m planning to go out on the Open Highway Hunt. It’s a tiny little hunt with only nine stops, so it should only take about an hour.

If those don’t get you excited, there are plenty of other hunts to choose from. Click the hunt names below until you find the one that’s just right for you.

You say you’re new to hunting? Need help learning the ropes?
Both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.
