The Femdom Hunt 2016: An Update

Z&A Productions first conceived of The Femdom Hunt back in 2011 and since then, with the help of the wider femdom community on the Second Life grid, we've had six very successful and highly-enjoyable hunts spanning five years. Starting with the second hunt, the hunt has always been announced on August 1st. Because of this I wanted to write a little post for anyone expecting one today.

For this year at least, The Femdom Hunt is taking a little holiday.

The hunt is very important to me and I proudly take a lot of care over creating a framework in which femdom owners and store owners can come together and make it the brilliant event it is. This year I’m unlikely to be in a position to devote the time and attention that I think the hunt deserves — as the organiser, and as a femdom location owner and vendor. The reasons for this are personal but very positive. Rest assured that RL is going to be wonderfully busy for me and will demand much of my attention.

I do want to stress: this is not an announcement to say that TFH will never happen again, far from it. It’s just a note to let everyone know that it’s taking 2016 off and will, all being well, return at some point in the not-too-distant future.

I’d also again like to thank everyone — location owners and hunters — who have ever taken part and made the hunt the event it is, with the good name it has, and with the expectation of fun that it has created. If you were making plans for taking part this year, in any way, please accept my deepest apologies.

TFHVI: Thank you

Another very successful Femdom Hunt is over and so, for the sixth time, I wanted to write a short note of thanks. As I say each time, and I feel it's important to say each time, there would be no hunt without everyone involved. The hunt only happens thanks to the vendors and Femdoms that are involved; and the Femdom hunt is a Femdom hunt thanks to the involvement of the many and varied Femdom regions and locations that exist in Second Life.

Also, there's no hunt without the hunters. In combination with the vendors and Femdom locations you've made the in-world group, and the business of organising the hunt, so much fun. I can't thank you enough.

I'd especially like to thank Anna Creed, Eve Terr and Reven Rosca for being invaluable sets of eyes and ears, keeping an eye on things when I've not been in-world (or have been in-world but dealing with something else). The same thanks goes to everyone else who has alerted me to any issues that have cropped up. Your help and support in that way makes everything run smoother.

Extra thanks go to Anna for being there through the whole process of this year's hunt organisation, offering help and encouragement just when it was needed. I'm not sure I could have done it without her.

As for what happens now: over the next few days I'll be tidying up the blog and hiding the pages that aren't needed any longer. I will leave the location list in place should you want to go back and find a particular location. I do encourage staying with the group, especially if you're a vendor, as that will be the first place that any future Femdom Hunt will be announced, if and when dates are decided.

And... that's it. For this year, at least.

TFHVI: Closing dance photos and videos

Although there was still well over a day left to go (and still around 16 hours left as of the time of writing) in The Femdom Hunt VI, yesterday afternoon we gathered in the Raven Park Ballroom to celebrate the (almost) end of the hunt. Gifts were on show, gifts were worn, dances were danced, music was played. And, of course, photos and videos (you'll find the videos at the end of this post) were taken. You can find all the photos over in an album on imgur. Here are some highlights:

As well as plenty of photos, here's some video too:

Thank you to everyone who came along and helped make it fun, and many thanks to Miss Eve for providing great music. That's it for another year of Femdom Hunt dances; in two weeks time we'll be returning back to the normal Raven Park dances.

Save the Date: The Femdom Hunt VI Closing Dance

As with the weekend of the start of The Femdom Hunt VI things coincide with the usual fortnightly Raven Park dance. So, once again, we're making it a Femdom Hunt dance. This time to celebrate the (almost) end of the hunt.

And the theme? Just like the last couple of year it's:

I finished the Femdom Hunt!
(or not, but I'm close, or hope to)

The idea being that people come along wearing outfits, or restraints, etc, from or inspired by this (or previous) Femdom Hunts. Everyone is welcome. Dress up, dress silly, dress totally fetish, whatever takes your fancy, and come and swap your Femdom Hunt hunting and unboxing stories. As always there'll be a fun mix of tunes from Eve Terr.

Here's the details:

Date: Saturday October 31st
Time: 3pm to 5pm SLT
Where: Raven Park
Music by: Eve Terr

TFHVI: Opening dance photos and videos

Yesterday afternoon was the opening dance for The Femdom Hunt VI. We gathered in the ballroom of the Raven Park Mansion and enjoyed a couple of hours of fun and music. Photos and videos were taken during the event. Here's a few highlights (with the videos at the bottom, the whole album of photos can be found over on imgur):

We'd like to thank everyone who came along and made it a fun event -- it was a lovely break from the work of getting the hunt under way. We'd also especially like to thank Miss Eve for putting on a great musical set.

We'll be using the next Raven Park dance, in two weeks time, to mark the (almost) end of the hunt. Like the last couple of times the theme will be "stuff I've got on the hunt". Hopefully we'll see you then!

TFHVI: Second day update

We're now well into the second day of the hunt and everything is going well. There are, of course, a small number of hiccups and we're waiting on a very small number of locations that have been bitten by RL to join us. Please do keep an eye on the known issues blog post to be sure of the status of any location with a problem.

Some locations on the hunt are providing special offers that last for the duration of the hunt, so do be sure to take a look at the Stuff on the Hunt blog post to see what's happening and what's available.

If you're interested in how and where the blog is being mentioned on the web do have a look at the Blogged page. If you know of any mentions out there that aren't listed do please let Antony know.

Of particular interest might be a hint of the return of hunt path abuse.

Finally, I'd also like to remind everyone that nudity isn't a form of dress best suited for this hunt. While this is an adult-themed hunt not every location is Adult-rated, even plenty of those that are Adult request that there be no nudity. So, please, keep the fun parts covered while hunting. ;)

Stuff on the hunt

The idea behind this post is to gather together details of any new product launches, hunt-based special offers or events that might be of interest to people that are happening at hunt locations during the hunt. If you have something you'd like mentioned here please drop Antony a line.

Femdom Sale at WS Creations

#07 - WS Creations - are having a 50% off sale on all their Femdom-specific items for the duration of the hunt. Items include the Dominatrix Chair, Femdom Chair and the Bucket'n'Rag.

Hunt Shoe Sale at Meshopotamia

As many know, we're using a new shoe for the hunt this year, and it was made for us by Reven Rosca of #16 - Meshopotamia. She has a Slink-compatible (which also comes with a system-feet-compatible) version, full perm (licence terms apply), in the store.

For the duration of the hunt they are 50% off. Perfect if you fancy making, and wearing, your own version of the hunt shoe!

Femdom Pose Sale at Black Tulip

From #04 - Black Tulip: "The sixth edition of The Femdom Hunt has started today, and will be up until November 1st. We're participating in the poses and props store with the new couple pose Yes, Mistress #1. In addition to this, we're also releasing the couple poses Yes, Mistress #2 and Yes, Mistress #3. They'll be set 50% off their price while the hunt is up."

In other words, if you want to complete the set that starts with the gift, you can get them half price while the hunt is on.
