Guest Blog by WHC Riler – Basic Black? Not A Chance, This Is Exceptional Black!

A Guest Blog by WCH Riler – Basic Black? Not A Chance, This Is Exceptional Black! Originally blogged [HERE]

I have been quite busy lately, trying to make up for the time I was away. You know though, it’s only fair if I work hard, I should get to play just as hard. So, tonight I am going out to catch a blues band at my favorite bar. A new guys’ hunt just opened which is quite special, and I wanted to take a moment to tell you about it. The Blues is a gridwide hunt brought to us by the people at Depraved Nation. It is not a free hunt (each prize costs 5L), but there are some very nice gifts involved in it and it is definitely worth a look. A night out on the town is the perfect occasion to show off this hunt prize offered by NERD MONKEY. It consists of The Black Classic Shirt, The Gray Classic Tie and The Gray Classic Vest. All three pieces are mesh and completely separate. The texturing and the stitching on the vest alone blew me away. For 5L not only do you get this nice outfit put together, but you can also combine it with other pieces in your wardrobe to make it an even more exceptional value. The Blues hunt is on until August 31st, check it out.—–WHC Riler

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – A Summer Trip Around the World

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – A Summer Trip Around the World, originally blogged [HERE].

The Around the Grid 2 Hunt is now in full swing with a long list of participating merchants.  It’s loosely based on the Jules Verne classic Around the World in 80 Days, and so is lasting a total of 80 days, through September 30.  This hunt is a little unconventional in that you won’t get the LM to the next store on the hunt when you find a prize; you have to use the LMs on the AGH2 website.  The other twist to the ARG hunt is that in addition to a $1L hunt prize, many of the stores also have a $25L Gatcha with hunt-themed gifts in them (the gatcha is optional for the merchants).  I won’t be showing you stuff from the Gatchas, but here’s some pictures of some of the fun $1L prizes you can get from the regular part of the hunt.

Not all the shops are adhering strictly to the historical aspect of  Around the World … but even those who are giving more modern prizes are sticking with the idea of summer travel.  I start out my summer trip in the Skull Pump Ride red and black roadster, the AGH2 prize from NR Designs.  It’s a drivable vehicle that comes equipped with some smoke and fire when you hit the accelerator.  And, man, can this baby fly!

NRDesigns_002Unfortunately, as you can see I ran this hot rod off the road, which means I’m going to have to walk until I find a place to get a tow.  I’m headed off in my mesh plaid cargo shorts and tee which I got as the AGH2 prize at Beautiful & Dangerous.

Beautiful&Dangerous_001

Finding it a little chilly up here in the northern mountains I whip out the mesh hoodie and t-shirt I scored from the AGH2 at Short Circuit.  It captures the around-the-world theme nicely with the world map on the front of the tee.

Short Circuit_001But what do you know?  Just down the road I come upon a cute little taxi, sitting around just waiting for me to drive it.  This Whimsy Taxi is the AGH2 gift from StoraxTree and is also drivable.  Since I’ll be back inside a car again, I can take off the hoodie and try out the Outer Banks shorts and tank top that I got as the AGH2 gift from Euphoria Couture.  Now if I can just manage to keep this taxi from running off the road …..

I just couldn’t leave without showing you the latest group gift at FA Creations!  The FA Creations group is free to join and the new group gift is the mesh Tabitha Maxi Dress.  I am also wearing a cute little gacha prize I picked up in the Glow Studio shop today that I think you’ll enjoy!  These Birdy Glasses play for just 60L and there are a ton of different colours to try for.  I got these ones on my first try, so either I am lucky or the odds are good!

A Blonde Sienna in Violets

Snapshot_002

Hi Fabulouses!  I have news of an amazing new free gift by Finesmith, and if you are a fan of purple… you won’t want to  miss out on this fabulously free outfit!

After you join the Finesmith inworld group (which is free), you can pick up a couple of gifts, but the most recent gift is this one that includes the mesh dress, Slink Add-on Shoes (high feet), choker, bracelet, slink fingernail appliers and also the shimmering violet hat, which is in my hand.

The reason my hat is in my hand today instead of on my head is because I also wanted to show you this great new group gift at LeLutka!  Now at the mainstore, inworld group members can activate their free LeLutka group tags and pick up the new Sienna Hair that comes in a full fatpack of shades!  Sienna is a sassy angled bob, and a must have as an inventory staple!  There are also a few previous group gifts available still for picking up if you have missed them in the last few months.

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – The Dark Fae & Rispetto Designs at The Wash Cart Sale

A Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone, originally blogged [HERE]
The Wash Cart Sale as some good stuff for men in addition to all the goodies for the ladies, and all at bargain prices.  I was pleased to find that one of my favorite stores, Rispetto Designs, is back in SL after having been closed for about a year, and has a small men’s shop on The Wash sim and  a cart in this month’s cart sale.  Designer Khayman Karlsvalt’s Amour & Rispetto Designs cart is selling one of my favorite summer outfits for just $10L – the Giretto tank top, roll-up shorts and waist-tie sweater.  You get both a black and a white tank top with the outfit, and it’s great for the beach or just hanging out.

Image

Next up is the men’s hoodie and cargo shorts that you can find on The Dark Fae Cart.  The mesh hoodie comes in both a t-shirt version and an open, bare-chested look.  Dark Fae’s black mesh cargo pants complete the look with either version of the hoodie, but the pants can be worn by themselves as a board-shorts swimsuit as well.  The hoodie and the shorts are each a mere $10L at the Dark Fae Cart.

Image

The hair I’m wearing with both outfits is Mario in black, the May group gift from Pocket Mirrors.  Pocket Mirrors specializes in retro and old-time hairstyles for men and women, and it’s another favorite store of mine that has been off the grid for sometime but is now back with a new store.  It’s well worth a visit.

ImageAnd finally, if you’re curious about the little piece of paradise in the background of these photos, you should check out the Arabian Oasis of Love, also available at The Dark Fae Cart at The Wash Cart Sale.  For just $10L you get your own beach or desert oasis complete with palm trees, fountain, and animated cuddle rug with pillows.  There are nine pg cuddle poses in the rug, many of which are suitable for relaxing as a single, and the package contains both a full-sized version and a petites-sized version of the oasis and rug.

Guest Blog By Geoffrey Edwardstone – Group Gifts for Men at ALB Dream Fashion

Guest Blog By Geoffrey Edwardstone – Group Gifts for Men at ALB Dream Fashion, originally blogged [HERE]

Although ALB Dream Fashion is well-known in fashion circles for it’s colorful boho-esque designs for women, the second floor of the store has a good collection of casual, fashionable menswear. There is a monthly group gift for men up there, and if you look carefully among the racks in the regular men’s clothing section you’ll see a number of additional group gifts where group members can get one or more of the colors of a regular item for free (it’s easier to spot these hidden gifts if you turn on hovertips in your viewer as you move your cursor across the clothing displays). A word to the wise – each group member is entitled to just one copy of each group gift- so if you accidentally trash something you won’t be ale to get yourself a replacement.

Image

I took myself over to the breathtaking Two Moon Gardens to take some photos of two of these ALB hidden group gifts.  My top is the GIL double vest and shirt. This is a single piece set of mesh garments which comes in several color schemes, though only the burgundy color is free to group members. The black leather back of the vest has an interesting pattern on it. My wife said she thought it looked like a horseshoe crab, but it looks to me like the rear end of a hog with a tail hanging down. Maybe it’s just a wearable Rorschach test. The pants I’m wearing are the NOAM black baggy jeans, one of a couple of colors that are free to group members. My shoes are unisex leather sneakers in white available at Duh! for just $10L.  Altogether the perfect thing for a nice spring walk in the garden.

A New Gift From MiaMai

untitledHappy Tuesday Fabulouses! I am so excited for all of these new spring themed gifts that are coming out lately!  At MiaMai, when you join the inworld group or the subscribomatic (I picked it up through the subscribomatic), you are eligible to take advantage of the beautiful new Kalia Silk Blouse in Peach as their free May Group Gift.  I have matched it up with a pair of coldLogic Mazza Trousers that I had in my inventory already from a previous purchase, but I think this blouse could be dressed up with a skirt or dressed down with a pair of shorts even!  It’s textured so beautifully and is such a soft, feminine shade of peach.

I am also wearing a couple of The Designers Circle finds!  ~{ZOZ}~ is participating in this round of The Designers Circle and is offering their brand new Slink Add-on Lace Wedges in a two pack (snow & abyss colours) for just 99L!  These are for the Slink Mid Feet.

You will also find their Silver Lace Polish Hud for the Slink Hands & Feet for 75L.  The hud allows for 12 different colours and includes both fingernails and toenails!
