Guest Blog by Serena Snowfield – Island Invasion

A guest blog by Serena Snowfield, originally blogged [HERE]
Invasion! (blogging soon)

Serena has been busy with RL travel and business, so Duncan and I thought we’d come over and check on the house for her. When we arrived, we were shocked to find the beach had been invaded… by hedgehogs! I have no idea how they got on the island, but they’ve sure made themselves at home.

A few notes about what I’m wearing: my shorts and towel are a recent subscriber gift from FATEwear. There is also a maple leaf version in the box for you Canadians. My hair is the newest group gift from Uw.st. If blue is more your style, you can pick up a a blue version at the current round of Creation.jp, which ends on July 15 (join the free group first). My skin is Davos by 7 Deadly s{K}ins, which you can pick up on sale at Bro Couture. Slink appliers are included in the box.

My hair is a free subscriber gift from ARGRACE. It comes in a huge fatpack of colors, and there’s also a similar style for women in the box. Finally, my wing tip shoes from GABRIEL have been shown several times here, but they’re a great staple for any SL man’s wardrobe. :-)

Gavin Plays the Guitar

Blogging soon!

Ydea Style currently has this complete outfit out as a group gift for the fellas. The group is free to join, and includes the 2 shirts, pants, and shoes. There’s another fun thing in the box, which I’ll show you later in this post. :-) Oh, and my bracelet is a group gift from Chop Zuey Couture. There is one for either wrist – or both!

Blogging soon!

Three great freebies here: first, my skin is a free gift from ::Bite&Claw::. There is also a women’s gift in the box, which Serena showed here. My necklace is an older gift from RONSEM*, which was originally shown here by Love. It’s still available, so if you didn’t already pick it up, you still can! Finally, my eyes are a group gift from Madrid Solo Cosmetics. You need to join the group and check the notices to find the eyes… but they were posted a while ago, so don’t delay! There are also a couple of cosmetic gifts for both men and women available at the in-world store, so be sure to head over and scoop them up!

Remember when I said there was another fun thing in the Ydea box? Well, here it is! The outfit comes with this guitar prop, which, when you attach it, plays this lively guitar-playing animation. I decided that a still photo did not do the animation justice, so I decided to make this little piece of machinima. It’s my first attempt ever, and I know it’s pretty awful, but I think you get the idea. Oh, the guitar does not play music; I added it to the video. Enjoy! :-D

Marius in Mustard

Hey fab readers! The Hawker’s House in-world group recently reached a milestone of 300 members, and as treat, owner Kaid Hawker sent out a special gift! I’m wearing the men’s gift (of course!) which includes the Mesh Chino Pants in Mustard, Mesh Marius Cardigan with Turtleneck in Gollanth, and Mesh Toe Boots in Black. An entire outfit for free! My skin is one of the Christmas gifts sent to members of the Belleza group; if you missed getting yours from the group notices, you can still pick them up in the store. My glasses by Karacter are a 1L gift on the Marketplace, and my ring is one of the amazing advent gifts given to members of the Chop Zuey group. As of this posting, you can still find them in the store. :-)

Peace on Earth for the Fellas

Blogging soon!

There’s still plenty of time to pick up those Peace on Earth Hunt gifts (POE6)! Gavin’s jacket, shirt, and tie are the POE6 gifts from B&W Designs. Hopefully you can see the detailing in the leather because it looks pretty awesome! His hat and hair is the POE6 gift from ChiChickie!, which includes a HUD so you can change the hair color and hat texture.

Just a note about Gavin’s new skin: 7 Deadly s{K}ins has recently started making men’s skins, and has partially released a new line called Judas. The tone he’s wearing here has freckles, which I thought was rather unique for a men’s skin. Check ‘em out if you’re looking for something different! :-)

Peace on Earth for Women and Men

Gavin and I have been doing a little hunting in the Peace on Earth Hunt (POE6). Gavin is wearing the POE6 gift from 69 Park Avenue, which includes the jacket, pants, and scarf. The outfit is mesh, and I should caution you that only one size is included in the box. If you are a very muscular guy, you might need to adjust your shape a bit to make it fit. Gavin’s sneakers are a sale item from Mr.Bloch; 50L will get you a fatpack of colors, and the texturing is really nice on these. Another caution: there was no alpha layer in the box, so he added an alpha from another pair of sneakers, and all was good. :-) Gavin’s gloves are a free gift from ::GABRIEL::, available only at the Jewelry & Accessories Expo.

As for me, I’m wearing a lovely fur-trimmed coat from DG Designs, which is part of their gift for POE6. The gift also includes a pair of stockings and ankle boots, which I am not wearing here. Instead, I’m wearing a couple of items from  *~*HopScotch*~* that are available as part of Covert Affairs: The Main Event. The Snowy Stockings come in 8 different colors for both Slink feet or regular feet, and are available only at the event location. My boots are also part of The Main Event, and you can find them at the *~*HopScotch*~* main store. This color is exclusive to the event, and will never be sold again.

My pretty skin is the POE6 gift from [ROCKBERRY]. It comes in 4 different tones, with and without cleavage. My jewelry is the POE6 gift from Ear Candy. Oh, and my hair is the beautiful, new subscriber gift from TRUTH HAIR, Fernanda, that Love showed you last week. Gavin is wearing Simon, the December men’s group gift skin from .::WoW Skins::. He’s also wearing the brand-new Spectral Eyes from IKON; included are regular and mesh eyes. Hurry on over to the main store and pick up the color he’s wearing as the December group gift! :-D

The Black Event: Fab-Fae for Men + Makeover Your Bod!

Blogging soon!

Hey Fab Readers! I’ve got some great freebies and deals for you fellas today. I’ll start with my comfy sweater, which you can pick up for only 10L from the Fab-Fae cart at The Black Event. Standard mesh sizes… you know the drill. While looking for a new pair of jeans, I stumbled across these terrific Mesh Jeans from Ducknipple. They were 195L… but before you get all mad at me, consider this: they come in 3 different styles – tight, normal, and bootcut, which I’m wearing here – and they are HUD-controlled with 8 different textures. You get 4 colors in both “clean” and “dirty” versions (that’s dirty with dirt on them… not an “adult” version, if that’s what you’re thinking!). And the texturing is awesome! So… if my math is right, that would be 24 different pairs of jeans… which works out to less than 9L per pair. Not a bad deal, if you ask me! :-)

Need a new skin and/or shape? Then you DO NOT want to miss this amazing group gift from Mr.Bloch. This youthful Danny skin comes in 10 different tones, and includes a shape, which I’m wearing here. But don’t delay! I missed last month’s gift because I didn’t get to the store quickly enough, so go… NOW! Best part: the Mr.Bloch group is FREE to join! My eyes are a free gift from Mayfly, no group required. You can find them on the back wall under the “NEW Luminous Eyes” sign. Don’t forget to pick up the Dark Olive group gift eyes while you’re there. Finally, this shirt with the great camo texturing is another deal from the Fab-Fae cart at The Black Event.

What else do you need with your new skin, shape, and eyes? Hair, of course! You can pick up this cool 2-color hair from Uncleweb Studio (a.k.a. uw.st) by joining the free group at the front of the store. 5 different versions/colors are in the box. This is a 2012 group gift, but it’s still available, so get yours while you can. And you can dress your new bod in this Commando shirt from the Fab-Fae cart for just 10L.

There you go, guys. A whole new you! :-)

Mr. Autumn

Blogging soon

I’m out at Central Perk this afternoon for a little coffee and autumn sunshine, and I thought I’d do a quick post before my caffeine buzz wears off. I’m wearing the Mr. Autumn jacket, sweater, and shirt combo by Coepio. This item is one-piece mesh, and comes with sweaters in brown, gray, or black. The Coepio group is free to join, and there are quite a few other gifts for men available. My wing tips are a new-ish group gift from ::GABRIEL::. Again, lots of great gifts are available at ::GABRIEL::, so if you’re a new resident, or an old one who hasn’t been over in a while, be sure to check them out!

Little Buddy

This cute, little guy was out wandering around here on the DERAILED sim, and was nice enough to pose for a picture with me. If he follows me home, can I keep him?

Blogging soon!

My outfit is the November group gift from Sin Original, which includes the jeans, sweater, and jacket. There is also a gift for the ladies, which Love showed here. The gift includes a pair of shoes, but instead I decided to wear these great Men’s Work Boots, which are a free gift from =MODA= at The Rockabilly Fashion Fair (TRFF). Did I mention that this is a FATPACK of boots, and you get 5 different colors in the box? AND there is also a gift for women? :-D The Rockabilly Fashion Fair continues until November 23rd, so don’t miss out!

Oh, my skin is a group gift from Belleza. It has has been around for a while, and shown here several times. But it’s still a great skin, and still available. Also not new, but still free, is my texture-change scarf by Mr. Poet. 10 different colors are included.

Happy Friday! Today I bring you gifts from the Falling Into Autumn Hunt. All gifts are 0L, and the hunt lasts until October 21, 2013.

First up is my awesome mesh sweater, which is the FIAH gift from [American Bazaar]. Let me tell you, the knit textures are on this one are amazing. Next, my shoes are the FIAH gift from Shoenique Designs; there is also a pair of ladies boots in the box. My eyes are the group gift from IKON (already shown by Serena and Xanthe), and are still available! My jeans are not free, but are a new release from FATEwear. They’re Materials Enhanced, and come in 3 different “hip heights” so you can wear them as high or low as you like. 8-)
