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/event 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!

Time is Flying!

Hallo, Hunters!

Our month of "vacation" is almost at an end and lovely as it's been to have no blog/hunt deadlines and time for other things, we're itching to get back in the swing of things come February!

There are a TON of great hunts coming up with the Valentine holiday mid-month, not to mention our very own Killing Cupid Hunt. The Cart Wash sales event will be happening again in February (tons of stuff from designers all over SL for the low price of 10L per item) and a little birdy told me the lovely folks at the Twisted Hunt are gearing up for a March assault on our hunting skills and sanity!

We've got a preliminary peek at the designer listing for the Killing Cupid Hunt to share for those of you who are interested.

Hope everyone is well-rested and ready to jump back into the hunting fray with us!

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.

Killing Cupid is coming...

Killing Cupid Hunt

The first SL Freebie Hunter blog-sponored, grid-wide hunt is coming your way on February 10, 2012. We are putting together a deliciously decadent group of stores and turning the designers loose with a theme of "Killing Cupid" - whatever their delightfully skewed, creative minds envision that meaning.

Somehow, I don't think we will be seeing a lot of hearts
and flowers on this hunt!

DESIGNERS!! If you would like to take part in the hunt, an application form is located in the "Pages" column to the right of this post - just fill it out and submit.
