I can sing a Rainbow, can you?

“Red and yellow, and pink and green, purple and orange and blue” *hums* Happy Sunday everyone! I’ve got some great colourful pieces to show off for you today! I know, me and lots of colour, surprising isn’t it 😛 .

I know you all are big fans of the SLF&O group, and the many gifts that are available for members. Well, one of my favourite designers that puts out SLF&O group gifts, has just switched out her previous gifts for new ones! I’m talking about Livalle. Sticking with the previous format of 3 pairs of shoes in 3 different heights, she has done the same with some pretty, perfect for spring, shoes. Each pair comes with Maitreya, Bellezza, and SLink versions, so most of you meshy feet wearers should be happy. To remind you all, the SLF&O group is free for you to join, and the gifts are free to grab with your tag on.

The first pair, in mint,  is a maryjane style heel, meant for the mid range feet. They are called Wednesday, but obviously will work for any day!

The second pair. in Lavender, are a great, strappy high heel for high feet. Their name is Rhiannon.

Lastly, the third pair, is a sweet Pink and Black flat, named Rosetta. I love the little bows.

Now, did you notice the dresses I had on in each picture? These lovely, bright, geometric printed dresses are from Somnia, and you can pick up a fatpack of 5 colour combinations over @ Free*Style for only L$50. That’s L$10 a dress! They are mesh dresses, available in the standard sizes, in each colour combination. I should mention that I’ve heard the Free*Style shop will be undergoing some reno’s soon, which will also include a changing of all the great items that are there. So these dresses will not be available after that. I can’t tell you when this is happening, so I would not chance waiting too long, and head over right away. So many other great deals to be had, all items priced L$50 or lower, from so many great creators, you do not want to miss out.

Last thing before I leave you all. The Creators Collection Box is celebrating their 1st anniversary, and so almost every store that has a booth set up there, has also placed out a free gift for you. The 3 poses I used for my pictures are the gift you can grab from addme poses. I love that they include each individual pose, a pose hud, and a pose stand, so you have your choice in how you use your poses. There is no need to join any kind of group, just find the little box that says it is the anniversary gift, and buy for L$0. Sorry, I forgot to check how long this one will be running for, so again, I wouldn’t wait too long before you head over.

Alrighty. That’s it for me. Hope you’ve had a great weekend, and the coming week won’t be too terrible. Back to RL work for me, you know my feet will be dragging after having had a week off. So until I see you all again, TTFN *waves*

Sunday Driver!

whc illi car 6_001

Hello everyone and happy Sunday to all of you! The Menstuff Hunt hunt is still on and I have gotten a huge amount of stuff from it that is blog worthy. Much of it I have not even posted yet! So, I strongly urge you to roll up your sleeves and take a shot at hunting on Second Life. It can be a highly rewarding pastime.

Angel DELUXE is offering the smart-looking outfit above as their free prize on the Menstuff Hunt. The prize is rather comprehensive, so this is a breakdown of what Angel DELUXE is giving you for free. The Mesh Menstuff Jacket & Shirt is a one piece combo featuring the jacket, shirt and tie! The colors are surprising to me and look fantastic together. This is a highly handsome piece of mesh and is provided in five sizes. The Menstuff Jeans – Bootcut come with it and are blessed with excellent texture and a beautiful deep blue color in addition to the fact that being bootcut will make it easier to wear them over much of the footwear in your wardrobe. That makes them an excellent addition to your quickly-expanding inventory. Separate from the jeans is the Menstuff Belt. It is one of the best-looking men’s belts I have ever seen on SL: nicely textured brown leather with a metal loop and buckle which are perfectly proportionate. Sadly, it is not shown in the above pictures. The jeans and belt both come in two fitmesh sizes and three mesh ones, so fitting will not be an issue. One last item is in this gift, a handsome pair of military boots. Simple, yet good looking, they make an excellent bonus for an already unskippable stop on this year’s Menstuff Hunt.

One of my favorite places to get men’s shoes on Second Life is Illi. When I am not modeling something for the blog, many of the shoes I wear come from their store. When I saw that Illi was participating in the Menstuff Hunt, I knew I was going to pick up something I would enjoy greatly. The Stanley Sneakers in Blue are a cool-looking men’s sneaker to be sure, but it is what is in the box that impresses me most. Illi has included in this free gift: versions for classic avatars, Aesthetic avatars and Slink Feet! I am wearing the Slink Version in this picture, a rare pleasure for me to be able to model Slink shoes since for men they tend to be costly. So, not only are they a great sneaker, this is a chance to pick up shoes that might be handy should you ever move up to Mesh feet or a Mesh avatar. For that reason alone, this is a must pick up! Thank you very much Alphonse for another great item!

Finally, in the pic above I am showing off a Calavera SS Stock car from Zenit Designs. This free Menstuff Hunt prize is different from most that I show off in that it is a toy that you can play around with. I may be clothes obsessed (among other things) but there is more to Second Life than just what to wear. Taking a car out for a spin can be great fun! The Calavera SS Stock has classic muscle car styling and drives via a hud. One thing is for sure: the fun you will get out of it could likely make this a wonderful find for you!

Once I took the pictures of the car, I realized they did not show off my hair well. These things happen when you wear black hair in front of a dark brick wall! Although I have previously shown off the Damselfly Menstuff Hunt Gift here, The Hitch Non-Rigged Mesh Hair certainly could use added attention. It comes in 20 textures select-able via easy to use hud, and hopefully showing it in a lighter tint might garner it the attention such a nice 1L hunt gift deserves.

EccentriciXi‘s free gift for the Menstuff Hunt should help keep us warm until the last of the SL snow has melted. The Stuff Hunt Sweater&Scarf and Chinos is a two piece outfit with a camouflage theme. The Sweater&Scarf is one piece of Mesh, the sweater being a solid dark green with a nice cozy texture and the scarf having a camo texture. Since the sweater does not carry the camouflage texture, its look is well-balanced. I like how the sweater does not carry the camouflage texture, if it had that and I went walking in the woods no one could ever find me. The Mesh chinos bear a dark camo texture that looks realistic, a garment that is valuable to own in a regular wardrobe if you are a fan of that look. Both pieces come in five sizes each for a trouble-free fit, and make up a wonderful free Menstuff gift.

That’s it for me for now, but I will be in touch soon. I still have tons more to show you from Menstuff as well as the Jack or Jill Hunt. Now is an excellent time to be a male freebie/cheapie hunter on SL, I hope you can take advantage of it! Til next time, have fun and I will see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Flower Child

Flower Child

Like groovy!

The Flower Power Fair has freebies and dollarbies.

  The overall theme is hippie, boho, 70s but you will find non retro items there too. Not all booths have gifts so look for the blue & floral present boxes. The gifts ranged from FREE to 1L. I am opting to show you some of the truly hippie flower child gifts I picked up. My wild cute funky glasses are 1L and from 187. My happy bright pink flower headpiece is FREE from Swallow. It even includes a version you can size since hair can be so fussy sometimes lol. I lucked out and didnt need to play with resizing. My little flower ring is 1L from IT! and includes a color hud with resizer. I did have to play a bit with sizing it down to fit my slink fingers but I was able to get a good fit. Ok I am gonna harsh your mellow a little bit, the Flower Power Fair is a huge event and you are gonna have to walk around. Its a landing point dealio so I can’t give direct tps to the booths. That being said it was worth spending the time wandering thru the event to find all gifts. The event runs til Feb 26th so you have time to do your walking around.

As soon as I tried on the goodies I collected I knew I needed to head over to Marketplace for the perfect tie dye shirt to pair them with. I kept coming back to this mesh tie dye shirt so I went for it man. I am totally stoked I did. It has a really fab vivid tye dye print which is just what I wanted. Plus its not just a basic tank its got a cool criss cross strappy open back. The tie dye shirt set me back 65L but I am not regretting it this outfit is totally retro and fun.

Peace, love and happiness til next time.
