Welcome!

Hi there and welcome to Freebie Hunters! One of our favorite pastimes in Second Life is scouting the grid for fantastic hunts, sales, 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 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!

News Update

Hallo, Hunters!

We have been horribly, HORRIBLY remiss in not posting any hunts this month - but we needed a break to recharge our batteries for the coming year, and we've had all kinds of things going on in SL that really needed our attention focused there rather than on hunting.

Shadow's store, Dark Water Designs, has moved. The old sim closed on January 4th, and we are in a gorgeous new location with Inspirations by Inga and Celeste's Inspirational Designs. The stores are participating in a few hunts right now, and there is a Nickelback tribute concert scheduled for tomorrow (Jan. 15) at 1 p.m. SLT. If you are looking for something fun to do, come on by and check out all the beautiful newness!

Additionally, the application form is up (look under the "pages" heading to the right of this post) for any designers who would like to take part in SL Freebie Hunter's first gridwide hunt: Killing Cupid. The hunt will run from Feb. 10 to March 10, and we have some FANTASTIC designers signed up already! This should be a great hunt, so don't be shy about getting in on it.

And finally....yes, this is a hunt related blog, especially free hunts...but...I got my hands on a pair of ankle boots that are not free, but that are utterly fabulous and too good not to share. This single pair of boots has replaced about 12 pairs of boots in my wardrobe already. Every inch of them is customizable:

  • There are menus to customize everything from the heels to the boot texture to the stitching (a total of 10 different parts to the boots)
  • There are menus to change each part of the boot's tint, color/texture, and whether bits have a matte or shine finish. I counted over 50 options in the color menu alone.
  • The textures are superb - everything has rich color and clear detailing, as well as proper scale (which makes all the difference in the world!)

They are NOT cheap, but with all the color options and mix & matchability, you will never need another pair of ankle boots. They run about 799L, but when you consider the number of combinations you are getting in 1 pair of boots and the quality of all the textures included, its really a reasonable price.

  1. I understand the need to take a Hunting break, You two keep up an amazing pace and I can barely keep up. Still my endurance is building and like with any "physical" training, rest periods are important for "muscle" recovery and building. I found I am also taking a break this month. Glad to know that you are taking care of other concerns and will be back. The Killing Cupid Hunt sounds fantastic, cannot wait!

  2. I miss you guys.

    Hunting for mens clothing etc in a hunt can be a pain in the neck since most of the clothing/stuff is for women. Without you guys, the reason I started hunting, hunting is time consuming with few rewards.

    Rest up and please hurry back.

  3. I ended up buying those boots, they really do work well with quite a bit of my 'closet' and I do like the new trend of HUD-controlled footwear I've been seeing :D
