Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – IT’S GROUP GIFT TIME FOR MEN

A Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – IT’S GROUP GIFT TIME FOR MEN…

Ydea is a freebie clothing hunter’s paradise for both men and women.  Every month there are new group gifts for both sexes and the group is free to join.  Better yet, the previous group gifts stick around for awhile.  There are two whole walls full of outfits, one for men and one for women, that you can pick up for absolutely no charge at all.  Ydea’s new April gift, the Tropez shorts outfit, put me in a warm weather mood, so I ambled over to the Tiki bar to get a picture of it for you.  The outfit comes with a mesh overshirt, shorts with sculpty legs, and mesh sneakers.

1) YDEA April GG

And how about this little beauty?  I’m talking here about the outfit, not the car.  If you happen to own a white sports car you can find the perfect outfit for cruising around with the top down on the Ydea past group gift board.  The Grant outfit includes pants layer dress pants, black buckled sculpty shoes, and a blue mesh jacket with open collared shirt.

Another good place to find free men’s clothing is Resun.  Resun specialzes in outfits with a bit of a European fashion flair to them.  In addition to the regular group gift near the entrance, there are group freebies scattered among the regular-priced items (you just have to look for them) and there is a separate discount area with lower-priced older items.  The outfit I’m showing here is the Roby Group Gift (free to join) featuring traditional clothing layer leather pants and shirt with prim collar and cuffs.  I’m also wearing low black casual shoes from Gabriel (former hunt gift) and Gabriel’s Unisex Body Bag (free group gift, free to join).  The free body bag group gift also comes in cheetah and camouflage fabrics.

A little leather, forget the lace.

A rare gem, Maitreya sent out an absolutely fantastic Group Gift recently! Known for their high-quality high fashion products, this gift is no exception. The gift is a thigh-high pair of mesh leg-warmers that come in two versions to fit different shoe styles, and the best part, there is a color/texture change HUD with a ton of options. You could dress them up or dress them down. They would be cute over leggings or with a dress, as I decided to wear them. If you’re not already in the Maitreya group, this gift is the perfect excuse to join. Even better, right now the group is free to join, yep, you heard me. FREE. Feelin’ smokin-hot in my new leg-warmers, I was determined to find the perfect outfit to go with them. I searched high and low, and finally found this sexy little tank dress from Lavarock. The dres is their current “SL Frees and Offers” Group Gift. The dress is mesh and the texture is highly detailed. Also, I think it’s important to note, this specific gift also comes with an equally awesome shirt for the guys. I got my leg-warmers, found a dress to match, and I haven’t spent a dime, how cool is that?! Feeling good about my outfit so far, I splurged a little and went over to the 100 Block Fashion Event. I know you’ve heard me talk about Hebenon Vial before, and I still <3 them, so I was excited to find they were participating in the event. I picked up this wicked looking facial piercing set there. The set is called “Nosejob” and it’s easy to see why! I liked that the little cross on one of the septum rings tied in with the cross design on my Lavarock dress. If you decide to get a little Nosejob of your own, wear your HV group tag and get a discount. Alright, I think I’m through with the telling part of my show’n’tell,  time for the show!

Enjoy!

RPH5 - #23

Here’s another men’s gift from the Runway Perfect Hunt #5.  Second Life is for letting us do things we never could in RL, so for those of us who never made a varsity team in any sport now we can at least look like we did.

This outfit is the RPH5 male gift from CHG Fashion.  It includes a tee (jacket layer) plus rigged mesh jeans with belt, hat, jacket (in both open and zipped looks), and sneakers  – a complete outfit for only $5L.  In case you’re wondering about the purple and gold colors, the jacket and hat are the team colors for a U.S. professional basketball team, the Los Angeles Lakers, with the team logos and name carefully changed.  But despite the basketball symbolism, I’m showing it to you as a varsity football player (that’s the U.S. version of “football”) because I like the poses.

If you ladies want to color-coordinate with the varsity guy in your life, CHG has a female gift in the RPH5 too.  You’ll find the same outfit in the women’s prize along with a color coordinated mini-dress cheerleader outfit.  And, no, I’m not going to model the mini-dress for you.
Geoffrey is wearing:

RPH5-#27(69 Park Ave)

This is for all the Fab Free guys out there who think Menstuff and Make Him Over are the only hunts where men can find high quality, free or nearly free items.  Love, Xia and Xiu have been blogging The Runway Perfect Hunt #5 gifts.  Yes it’s true that most of the 51 stops on it have female gifts, but a couple of them have men’s prizes.  Today I’m showing you two gifts guys can pick up from RPH5, plus a couple of other freebies.

The Cayman outfit in sandstone is from 69 Park Ave GQ and features a jacket layer shirt, brown mesh pants, and dress shoes – a complete outfit for only $5L.  It’s a nice casual outfit for an evening out or at home with your lady.  And while you’re looking around the store for the gift be sure to check out the group gift. 69 Park Ave GQ gives out nice ones and they change frequently, so it’s well worth the small joining fee to get them.  The pose is one of five male poses offered by KaTink in the RPH5.

A Little Bit of the Japan Fair

Culture and fashion are two of my favorite things, and you can get a little of both at the Japan Fair! I spent just a little time and was able to pick up a few super cute gifts, along with some hunt items. A few merchants are participating in a “secret” hunt just to add even more fun to the event! The Fair will run until April 20th, so there is plenty of time to explore and discover all the beautiful creations the participating designers have created with the enchanting Japanese culture as their inspiration. I really wish I had more time to spend exploring personally, I feel like there is a lot I miss out on at times. That said, I am stoked to show you what I did find! I hope you enjoy it, I certainly did!

Heigh Ho, Heigh Ho!

Snapshot_002Don’t mind me… I’ve just got a little work to finish up here before I tell you all about my outfit today!  I don’t know where I am going with this - I am far too lazy for manual labour but I thought it was too cool to not share. I’ll explain about the whole rock thing in a bit!

So many things to write about today, I am not sure where to start!  I guess a good place to start is The Courtessan outfit that includes the bow adorned mesh top and skirt.  This outfit is a free group gift at Poet’s Heart, which is free to join.  This was my first visit to Poet’s Heart and I will surely be returning as I had my eye on a few things!

Snapshot_007The Courtessan Outfit is beautifully detailed with bow and rose additions to the back.

Snapshot_003The necklace I am wearing is a free gift, priced at 0L in the gift room at LaNoir Soleil Designs.  This comes with a matching male lock necklace too!  This necklace has been previously shown before a couple of times here on FabFree when it was available as a free gift at FFHQ.  LNS has since changed out the gift, but it is now available at their shop if you missed it!

I know you must be wondering about this awesome hair and crown and I am super excited to share a little sneak peek with you.  The Ignes Wildmane and Winged Crown is made by LaNoir Soleil Designs and are just a little taste of the hunt gifts you can obtain after completing Mad Pea The Lost Mine Hunt that begins on April 1st.
Snapshot_005This Ignes Wildmane & Winged Crown Set come with a HUD that allows for four hair colours, and jewel choices for the crown too.  There is also a prize by LNS for the guys shown below.  Again… The Lost Mine Hunt hasn’t started yet, but you can keep an eye on their official blog for more sneak peek photos and information on the upcoming hunt.
PicMonkey CollageOooh…  I almost forgot!  I was going to explain about the first photo…  The Lost Mine Hunt Gifts by LaNoir Soleil designs come delivered in this fun mining themed pose.   When you add the item to your avatar to open it, the rock, pick and pose attach. I always appreciate the gift, but when it’s wrapped up in a cool way, it just adds to the pleasure!  I could tell the LNS team had a lot of fun with this hunt prize and I wanted to show it off :)

Hmm… One more thing…  If you happen to still be reading my post!  The skin I am in today is WoW skins Leandra which is available in three skin tones at The Designer’s Circle for just 99L per pack!
