Looking Faboo

Hiya everyone! I just found out this morning about a sim-wide hunt called FABOO Style Central Hunt, and even though it ends in a few days (the 31st) I decided that the free prizes were worth the regrettably short notice I'm giving all of you for this one. I do apologize, but I also have confidence that you can manage to complete this hunt in a relatively short time :) You will need the FABOO group tag (free to join) active to claim the prizes, and there are 30 for the ladies and 10 for the men so I suggest bringing your favorite male avatars as well. Please click the sign to get the hint notecard, which will guide you to finding the piles of sand with a treasure chest atop each one, the mens' are darker color chests so you can differentiate easily. You will be wandering a beautiful residential area as well as around some stores, and the prizes are in the open rather than hiding beneath things or up high, so no flying or camming skills needed. In the shopping area, please explore all walkways and wander behind the stores. In the residential areas, please don't enter any homes and stick to your hints as they are very effective. Ready for peeks at a random selection of the wonderful prizes?

The treasure chests and the beach areas might put you in mind of summery treats, and this bathing suit from prize #2 will certainly do the same! This is called Rio Unikini - Lexi and consists of the suit in sizes for Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, TMP, and a fitted version, along with a HUD that offers 7 choices for each the top and bottom: the print shown and 6 coordinating solid colors. The first prize was this same suit in different colors and print, so if you enjoy this one I suggest finding that first one as well.

More terrific colors and patterns to be found inside prize #4, their Belize Bikini in Waikiki Pink. In addition to the top and bottom in standard, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes each, there is a HUD to change each part between the fun print and the solid pink. This style is a very playful one, with the extra openings but still not overly revealing, and that single shoulder strap is a great touch.

I am such a fan of this style, probably at least in part because it would be so impractical in RL (tan lines, 10 minutes just to tie it correctly) that its perfect ease in SL is a welcome treat. This is called Puerto Rico Bikini - Cinco and is tucked inside treasure chest #5, in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. Also provided is a handy HUD with 4 textures for the top and bottom, so you can mix and match or keep it simple.

Even on a tropical vacation, we do occasionally need clothing other than beachwear, so be sure to find prize #7 if you are a fan of this Tee Dress C6. It comes in standard mesh sizes plus Belleza Freya, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique, plus a HUD with both texture choices you see here - solid pink or the pretty pink and blue pattern on the right. The slightly loose fit and ever so subtly draped neckline give this dress an extra touch, in fantastic summer colors.

Sometimes on vacation, you encounter a slightly chilly day or evening, so what to wear if you still want to show off your lovely legs? Find treasure chest 9 and you can solve that problem very easily :) This is the Cozy Sweater Dress Valentine and includes what I call the lucky 13 of mesh sizes: 5 standard, 5 fitmesh, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. But wait, there's more! There is also a HUD with 9 color choices, various shades of red and pink as you may expect from the Valentine name. As you can see, this lush knit works for any season, not just Cupid's visiting time.

One last look of the evening, this is prize #10 and is called Fiji Dress - Lanai Prints, and comes in standard mesh sizes. What is definitely not standard is the versatile included HUD, which offers 6 stunning patterns, each with the option of an open chest or closed bodice area. As you can see, I have it closed on the left and open on the right. So you can decide if you want to show some cleavage, or just enjoy the slits in the skirt which are there for both styles. I must say, this dress fit my Maitreya body very well, which is not always a guarantee with standard mesh sizing, so I was extra delighted by that stroke of luck on top of the beauty of this dress.

There are still plenty more prizes to see from this hunt, so I believe that sums up my weekend blog plans pretty nicely :) There are also some group gifts in the FABOO store that you can claim with that free group tag, so I will be sharing them soon as well. I do hope all of you have a wonderful weekend planned, magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
