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!

Mr. Hunter, April '13

Mr. Hunter

Hunts for guys are rare enough that it's worth doing the ones that do come along from start to finish. The fourth edition of the Mr. Hunter Hunt, which runs until April 30, has 35 stores (well, 34 if you take into account the one that dropped out and was a Skip) offering some great gifts. Organizer Lasher Spiritor made it a requirement that the prizes all be male fashion items. A few of the stores have unisex gifts, but really this hunt is strictly for guys.

Mesh clothing is becoming increasingly common in Second Life, and the men's designers are not far behind the women's designers in taking advantage of the fit and texturing capabilities of mesh. The vast majority of the prizes in this hunt are mesh, and aside from a few body alpha layers that were not well matched to the clothing, these prizes are well made. Many are certainly a welcome change from the black-on-black color schemes of so much men's clothing. If you don't know a lot about how mesh clothing works and how it interacts with your avatar's shape, you'll find that many of the designers in this hunt provide useful information on sizing and avatar shape adjustments that will help make mesh work for you.

The hunt proceeded smoothly, the biggest challenge being that the brown pipe hunt object tends to blend in very well with wood and stone textures making it hard to spot even if the hint gets you to the right part of the store. The hints were mostly helpful with only a few stores having hints that seemed to have little or nothing to do with where the item was located. The Mr. Hunter Hunt is well worth the time. Cheers, and Happy Hunting!
