Welcome!

Hi there and welcome to Freebie Hunters! One of our favorite pastimes in Second Life is scouting the grid for fantastic hunts, sales, events and gifts from all the wonderful creators. We thought we'd share the wealth and showcase some of our finds in this blog, with an emphasis on the goodies available in the many SL hunts and events occurring every month. We do our best to show ALL items from a hunt and in the manner the creator intended, but this is not always possible.

An important reminder - All deals posted are subject to the whims of the item creators, and are often offered for a limited time (from hours to months). We do not guarantee the items are still available, and the creators are under no obligation to give anything.

Thank You to all of the creators!

Faboo Summer Hunt

Woo-Hoo! I hit the ultimate summer jackpot! Faboo, known for their gorgeous swimwear, has opened up their sim for a couple weeks with the "Faboo Summer Hunt". This was a lot of fun to do and I now have a complete swimsuit wardrobe for pretty much every beach/pool/look-how-sexy-I-am summer occasion that might pop up.

There are 30 little sand piles for the ladies and 10 for the gents, complete with pirate treasure chests, hidden around the Faboo home sim. Teleport over, put on your group tags (free to join), and get yourself a NC from the hunt sign at the landing point. It has all the clues you need and those spots with both a male and female sand pile are marked with an asterisk (*), so you male hunters out there can pick and choose which clues to follow so you don't end up with a closet of bathing suits. Unless, of course, that's your thing! =)

The clues are pretty good - some were easy to find and others took a little ferreting around, but the sim is gorgeous - everything from a modern city block to a houseboat to a hobbit-themed cottage and a Ferris wheel is there, so you definitely won't get bored wandering around chasing sand piles. The group join is free, the gifts are free, so really there is no reason not to go check it out.

I have not included photos of the many HUDs that come with the gifts. Almost every item has a HUD giving you multiple textures for the swim suits and other clothing items, so if you like a style but aren't sure about the color as shown in my photos below, chances are pretty good you can change it up yourself once you find it on the hunt.

The Crystal Heart Festival

My personal taste in anime runs more along the lines of Bleach, Attack on Titan, Gantz, etc. (the more fighty, gorey side of anime) rather than Sailor Moon and similar titles, so when I heard about the Crystal Heart Festival, I had intended to give it a pass. However, I kept hearing more and more about the event, about how excited people were for it (and from one particular friend how she went broke there shopping!) so I finally caved in and made a trip over.

Wow.

It was girly and pink and filled with cute things, just like I thought it would be - but it was more than just that. There were some amazing items to find in the various booths and gachas and I ended up not just checking out the gift items for a blog post, but shopping the first time I went there. That's right - the first time...I ended up going a second time because the Seul top just stuck in my head until I finally went back and bought.

This event definitely lived up to the saying not to judge a book by its cover, and I am very glad I ended up paying them a visit.

Event Information
Dates: June 30th -July 31st
Start/Location: Crystal Heart Kingdom

Happy Shopping!

Cheers,
Shadowed
