Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – Calling All Roleplayers – The Medieval Fantasy Hunt

A Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – Originally blogged [HERE]

I have to admit I’m a sucker for historical stuff in SL and I always try to check out historically themed hunts.  The twelfth edition of the Medieval Fantasy Hunt (MFH XII) is running until the end of this month, and starts at the United Inshcon shop sim.  You can follow the hunt either by getting the LM to the next hunt stop from the previous store’s gift or you can used the list of SLURLs at the MFH XII hunt blog.  The blog also gives the hints for each stop in both English and German (with one stop just in German) which is an advantage when you come upon a stop where the hint giver isn’t set up.  There were 52 stops in the MFH XII hunts when it started but 7 have dropped out, leaving 45 offering either a unisex or both a male and female prize.  But despite the fact there are just 45 stops, many of the prizes are ingeniously hidden at a considerable distance from the landing spot and it will take you a bit of time if you want to do the entire hunt.

First off let me show you the Odhor black mesh warrior outfit gift from PeKaS (MFH XII #15).  It’s mesh and includes alternative tunics with the hood up or with the hood down.  This outfit also includes the shoulder cape and the back-carried shield.  But the sword I’m wielding is the Viking Sword MFH XII gift from Dwar Barbosa Weapons (MFH XII #34).  The gift includes a wearable sheathed version, and is scripted with drawing and sheathing animations as well as the standard fighting animations.7Pekas,DwarBarbosa, Feyline (#15,34,28)_001The rightmost panel in the picture above shows an entire medieval Bryce woodsman outfit, which is the male gift at Feyline Fashions (MFH XII #28).  In addition to all the clothing, the outfit includes the hat, boots, bow and arrow (unscripted), and thigh-carried hunting knife.

Moving on, I’ve changed outfits to show you the Mystical Fantasy male medieval outfit in blue from C&N Designs (MFH XII #27).  The tunic and pants are mesh, and the outfit comes with the belt and boots.  It’s an elegant outfit, so I’m wearing it as I relax on Her Majesty’s Wooden Bench, the gift from An Lema (MFH XII #25).  This gift includes the animated mesh bench with all those pillows, the rug, two plant stands, and a table with decor items on it.

2AnLema:C&N_MFH#25&27_001_001

And finally, this next picture shows you the Korin knight’s outfit, the male MFH XII gift from The Seamstress (MFH XII #37).  It doesn’t include the boots (those are the boots I showed you above), but it is a mighty fine looking outfit with a gold design on the red velvet and a gold neck chain. That pistol is the Pirate Pistol MFH gift from Designs by Isaura (MFH XII #12).  The gift includes a “holstered” version which has the pistol held at the waist with a golden sash.  The pistol does fire, but is not damage-enabled unless you stick your own scripts into it.

There’s a lot more good stuff out there on the Medieval Fantasy Hunt so I hope I’ve shown you enough that you’ll go out and find all that good stuff.

Guest Blog By Geoffrey Edwardstone – Group Gifts & Sales Room Finds For Men

A Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – Group Gifts and Sales Room Finds for Men, originally blogged [HERE]

There are some terrific men’s clothes out on the grid for a limited time right now so I’d advise you to get right down to both the Cosmopolitan Sales Room and 69 Park Ave GQ to get ‘em while they’re there.  This round of the  Cosmopolitan Sales Room has a couple of super-cool men’s jackets for sale for just $70L until June 8th.  The one I’m showing here is the Binboa jacket in copper with shirt and tie from GioMen on sale for just $70L.  It’s all one mesh piece but comes with a HUD which allows you to change the color of the shirt and the tie separately to any one of 5 colors.  That means you’ve got 25 color combination options with your copper colored jacket.  You can wear this with just about any pants you have in your wardrobe, but don’t forget the free stuff that the Lindens gave you in your inventory Library.  The black Musician Male jeans are one of my library favorites even though they’ve got a little rip in them.  

GioMEN-Binboa

 

The slip-on black leather shoes are the current group gift at sf Designs.  There’s a small group joining fee but it’s worth every penny  because the group gifts change monthly and everything owner Swafette Firefly makes is high quality.

sfDesign Shoes

69 Park Ave GQ always has great group gifts and the group costs just $50L to join.  Group gifts change over on Fridays, and this week there are two free men’s gifts plus a $100L gift certificate available through June 5.  That’s right, you get twice the group joining fee back as a gift certificate which is a fabulous deal – just look for the information board near the back of the store.  This week’s Red Pearl tuxedo is actually several outfits in one because you get both a short and a long tuxedo jacket, or can wear the vest and shirt without a jacket as I’m showing you in the pictures here.  And this is the perfect time to pick up formal wear with a red tie and vest – you’ll need it next winter for the holidays and Valentine’s day.

69 Park Ave GQ Tuxedo

The second group gift this week at 69 Park Ave GQ is a set of four board shorts just in time for the summer beach season.  These shorts are mesh and come with a color change HUD.  Hud controlled mesh is one of the great recent improvements on SL because now you can change your outfit without having to actually swap clothing layers or prim parts while worrying about showing … erm … anything private.

Board Shorts-69

And before I finish, let me mention the dreamy blue eyes I’m wearing in these pictures.  They are the Deep Sky mesh eyes from Mayfly available for free at the FabFree Station.  The package there contains both mesh and regular eyes in four different sizes.

Mayfly Fabree Deep Sky Eyes

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.
2) YDEA Grant GG

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.

Good Morning Fabulous Ones,

Yes, today I ran over and grabbed my weekly “The White Armory” Group Gift dress.  It is quite regal and I felt like yelping for joy… but for this flower hair that I picked up at the K M A D D subscriber that has its own built in muzzle, I would have.  My skin is the latest group gift from Filthy  and my earrings are today’s advent gift from EMO-tions.

I also found this cute little inro (hanging box on my waist)  by Fuubtus Dou!  It was one of the gifts sitting under the tree at the We <3 Role Play event. My nail appliers are from By*Snow  up on the Marketplace.  My little friend wasn’t a freebie, but he’s from Ohmai Emporium and is so cute I just had to include him.  All the Credits and Linkies are below.

Cooling Off

Snapshot_003

Good evening Fabulouses!  It’s HOT HOT HOT in RL right now, and the forecast says it will stay this way all week, which of course is very good for me, because I love the heat!  At least, I love it when I can relax in it!  If there is one thing I would have loved to have done today instead of melting through a long hot day of work, it would be to find myself an icy cool creek in a shady forest and cool myself off – so this is what I chose to do tonight in Second Life.  I guess you could say I am role playing being cool lmao.

The Mesh Ruffled Top & Denim Shorts I am wearing in today’s post can be found at Dirty Laundry, as they are participating in the Join The Picnic Hunt.  This is a free prize, and all you have to do is locate the hidden picnic basket!  The JPH runs until August 31st, and there are approximately 100 shops participating.  You can read more about this hunt on their official blog.

Feeling Filthy & LIVing-Glam

Snapshot_002Heya Fabulouses! I hope your Monday wasn’t too painful ;)  Mine was long, but now I can sit back, relax and share freebies, so it’s all good!

So… did ya’ll check out The 24, when I mentioned it on the weekend?  I hope so,  because there are some really fantastic gifts, dollarbies and cheapies to be found, and it’s ending soon.  Faithful FabFree-er Andi TPed me to the LIV-Glam shop at The 24 and showed me that there was a handful of dollarbies to snag!  (Thanks Andi!)  Of course I bought all of them, because I am a huge fan of LIV-Glam and their super cool HUD system.  It’s like getting a bunch of dresses in one with the colour changes the huds allow!  I was excited to see that the Christelle Drapped Dress I am wearing (my personal fave of the dollarbie bunch!!) comes with that fancy dancy hud with a ton of colour options.

The sweet **Tau-Denim** Clutch in my hands is one of the two group gifts for August at  +:+WTG+:+.  This group is 100L to join, but there are always great gifts, and it gives you access to the group lucky boards and midnight mania boards too.

Snapshot_0035

Notice a little change in my skin today?  That’s because I’m wearing a new one!  This beautiful skin is just one of three group gifts that you can pick up at FILTHY after joining their free inworld group.  The skin I have on today is the second gift, but make sure you grab #1 and #3 too!  All three of the gift skins come with two skin tone options (beach & cocoa).

G’nite lovelies ;)
