The Draw to Enchantment

“Do you hear the call of the waves below?
Or the way the fishes move in the flow?
To Sea! To Sea! The Seagulls do caw.
From somewhere she answers…
She answers their call.
Can you see the foam layered on sand?
Or feel the way it creeps up your hand?
Her curls shine…Shine bright in the sun.
She smiles and dances…
She dances for fun.
She’s ready to share her treasure with you.
Though you’ll need to find it.
Before the others do.”
[Poem courtesy of the Enchantment Hunt]

The Draw of Enchantment [1]

I’ll be honest… I’m not one for hunts. (I’m one of those people who has a terrible time finding where I last left my glasses in real life, let alone finding a hunt item in SL!) But this Hunt drew me in the minute I saw the amazing line up of designers and the gorgeous gifts, and I knew I had to share it with you! Especially as every one of these hunt gifts are FREE. Just find the little purple shell, click it, and viola! You’ve found your prize!

The theme of the Enchantment Hunt is little mermaid. I found you a simply amazing mesh tail for only 50L at The Muses that works great with the mesh Maitreya Lara body (which is what I have) as well as system bodies (you can see the tail in the picture above.) The Muses sells their tail in two styles — Ianthe or Ondine and you can get either style in an amazing array of colors from either their Marketplace store or their in-world store. I admit to grabbing mine from the Marketplace simply for the convenience.

The shot above is also a great view of half of the gift you’ll find if you stop by .aisling. as you swim through this great hunt. Their gift composed of two parts: a pose and a prop. The picture above gives you a clear shot of the pose… the siren or mermaid reaching out to draw in her prey… the picture below gives you a good picture of the second half of .aisling’s. gift — a stunning dagger with an intricately detailed hilt for you to hold.

The Draw of Enchantment [2]

The Hunt includes 23 amazing stops — far too many for me to showcase in one post. But I tried to hit several to give you an idea of just how amazing these gifts really are. This skin by Lumae called Adore – Eione // Anemone (notice the amazing details with the scales on the skin?!) came with every applier imaginable, as well as different color brow options and was also part of the Hunt.

My tiara is an Enchantment Hunt gift courtesy of PurpleMoon Creations and when I stumbled upon it, I fell in love — not just with the detailing and style but with the thoughtfulness of the creator who added a color-change hud! There are 12 gem color options and 5 metal options!

My mesh pearls and sexy star seashell modesty breast covers are an Enchantment Hunt gift from [Glitzz] and just as generous as the other gifts as they included an easy to use resize script that made them easy to fit to my avatar’s shape. I loved that I did not have to modify my avatar to fit these items, but instead I could modify these items to fit my avatar.

Last but not least — it’s not a hunt item, but I found a fabulous gift from you from Alice Project! They have put out a promo on the marketplace as a FREE gift for customers called Summertime Sadness in a special set of Mini Medley colors. I chose this lovely pastel pink to complete my look, but there were lots of great colors on the hud. And as always, this mesh style from Alice project is just breathtaking!

In my garden

One of the great things about being a FabFree member is the huge selection of totally free gifts you can pick up at our Headquarters! There is a little something for everyone no matter your style.

In my garden

I love medieval and Fantasy styles, if y’all didn’t already know that. So when I saw C&N Designs gorgeous ‘Eluthiel’ Dress, I knew I needed it! I love the quilted details and the golden ribbon wraps. The wide neckline just begs for a show stopper necklace and D.D.M Designs ‘Giallo Fiora Primavera’ necklace is just the thing.

In my garden

The Fabulously Free designers do change out the gifts periodically so if you love this look, hurry down right away to the FabFree Headquarters, put your group tag on and gather up the goodies!

Have you had a good fantasy lately?

Hello again, my dears, I hope your weekend has been a good one. I enjoyed a full weekend of Hunts and I’m here to show off the fruits of my labor in the 0L  Medieval Fantasy Hunt. This is a large hunt and it will take you all over the grid with 52 designers participating. First up is Folklorica and their ‘Viking Runic Turf Hut.’

Have you had a good fantasy lately?

This is a beautifully built two level home with the second floor being a loft with ladder access. There are Norse runes around the door way and trophy weapons above along with a ‘dragon’ head carving on the uppermost posts. Now, y’all know I’m a gamer geek and one of my favorites is ‘Skyrim’ and this little house looks like it would be right at home there. (Shout out to my Tamriel brothers and sisters!)  The turf rook comes in two versions: a summer look and a snowy winter look.

Have you had a good fantasy lately?

Next is C&N Designs ‘Arunilod Blue’ dress. The prize from C&N also includes a men’s outfit in the same lovely blue. I love the velvet-look corset and the asimetrical over skirt. Perfect for  your next Fantasy role play.

Have you had a good fantasy lately?

One more quick note, the gorgeous hair I’m wearing today is ‘Jennaleigh’ from Damselfly and right now, it and a bunch more styles, are on sale for 30% to 70% off. If you love hair, I recommend checking out the “Lucky Charm” sale before it ends on March 17!

Poison in the Water

sweetpea14f

I’ll admit that I know almost nothing about Gorean culture and role-play, but I do know a good mesh dress when I see one! This Poison dress is the latest group gift from ::The Sweet Pea::, a new-to-me store selling Gorean/Medieval clothing for women. I love the rich, vibrant colors and the sexy cut of the collar. :-) ::The Sweet Pea:: group is free to join, and you’ll find the dress in the notices — but hurry, because it will only be there for a few more days! I’m carrying water from the well using one of The Water Bearer poses from *~*HopScotch*~*, on sale at the current round of Zodiac – Aquarius (ends 13 February). There are 4 poses in the pack, and urns are included.

The skin I’m in is Apple 3/Natural, which I picked up from the Lucky Boards at [Rockberry]. The boards change pretty quickly, and there are quite a few located throughout the store. My jewelry is the latest gift for FabFree Headquarters from !ELEMENTAL Jewelry. All items at FabFree HQ are free for everyone, and there are new items all the time. If you haven’t stopped by in a while, be sure you come see what’s new!

Magic and Romance hunt

I am a sucker for romance. The stories of old with damsels in distress waiting to be rescued by their knight in shining armor, riding in on their trusty white stallion to save the day… or the mystical magical romances of characters like Arwen and Aragorn where she could certainly hold her own with any man who wielded a sword, yet was still so fair an Elf maiden. Or even the sad little mermaid who sits on her rock wishing to kiss the lips of the human she adores so much yet watches from afar.

It is in the spirit of these tales that the Magic and Romance hunt was created. It starts today and the starting point is Mer Elf Creations. You are searching for a rose and there are 30 stores in the hunt. Im not going to give you the SLURL’s to the stores as I want to encourage you to do the hunt.. if you are really that eager to get the things you see here, you can use search.. I know.. Im evil arent I..

The Christina Gown is the hunt prize from Mer Elf Creations. You get two versions of the dress in the box. This ballgown and a shorter version also.

This Glimmer gown is the hunt prize from Kouse’s Sanctum. Again you get a shorter skirt version inside.

This is the prize from Lvs&Co and is perfect for all the Valentine formals coming up.

The sumptious Samantha gown in a gorgeous velvet colour is the prize from Mystic Sky.

This utterly romantic BlueBelle gown is the prize from Deviance. There is an abundance of options in the box including hair flowers, roses baskets, a shorter dress version and different trimmings for the gown.

This picture shows the beautiful peasant shirt prize from L&S, the Amorno mask is the prize from Illusions, the adorable Magic Wand is the prize from Elvenbreath and the Love Potion necklace is the prize from Dilettantish Tragos.

The Devoted boots are the prize from Heart & Sole

There are lots of other gifts to be found that I didnt show due to not wanting to hog the blog, so please be sure to visit all of the stores in the hunt!

+ Lua hair by Analog Dog ( free from ball on beach )

Kouse’s sanctum

Kouse Singh is well know for the wonderful medieval gowns she makes. If you love Sanctum gowns, but couldn’t keep the group.. I feel your pain acutely. The good news it that Kouse’s Sanctum has a subscribe group, and there is a beautiful Caribbean blue gown waiting for you.

inaras

While you’re there, don’t forget to head to the back of the shop to check out the sale wall. There are a few gowns, and several silks for 1L$. I couldn’t resist the lovely Swallowtail gown below. When I walk, this gown seems to float on the air.. so pretty!
