City XY

Just off the shuttle, he steps off the platform and into the streets.

He is waiting.

For what no one yet knows, though the street lamps cast shadows on his face, playing at the look of longing set there.

Papers flutter in the wind, through the dark allies splashed with colourful signs. Nearby a telephone rings on the wall. He looks at it. It rings again. Does he dare lift it? Is this what he has been waiting for?

He picks it up, eagerly awaiting something, anything, to get him away from his dull life from beyond the wall.

A rat scuttles along the wall, not paying much mind to the soft whispers omitting from the receiver. There are things to do, food to find, in the vast maze of The City.

Night Rocker

The night is still.

Off in the distance you can hear the pitter patter of coming rain. You look to see, and there he is, waiting. How long he has been there, you do not know, but he seems patient enough. Then you catch the unearthly gleam of his eye. What happened to the other no one really knows, but it has never inhibited his abilities. He calls your name, and you have no choice but to go to him. The cherry scent of his imported cigarettes wafts in the air, making it thicker. You almost feel drowsy as you stumble into his arms. He lifts you up on his ride, and together you go off into the night. What adventures you have when you stop are yet to be known, but you know in your heart already that it’ll be something you will remember for all time. Clinging to his chest, you lay your head on his back, letting out a sigh.

If only it were forever night.

Yesterday there seemed to be a bit of a male skin crazy. There were 2 designers to release new product, and for 24 hours offer skins for L$10, while another is having a clearance sale with skins for L$10 aswell(Renee showed you some of the female ones). Altho not free, I thought I’d add them to this post, since deals like these do not come often for men.

Essences was the first to offer a L$10 skin for 24 hours, so grab your guy and send him down, but you ladies go too, there is also a womens L$10 skin. You will find both at the front desk. You don’t have that long, so go go go!

Skin-Essences: David 2 skin in Face 2 (Instore Deal – L$10 for 24 hours-less then 12 hours at time of this post)
Eyes-Skin Within: Fiction Eyes (Instore Gift – L$0)

Aa Production was the next to offer a 24 hour deal, with 2 skins up for grabs for L$10. The nice thing about this offer is that the one tone is a darker tone, I don’t see many that are truly dark, but not tan, that are cheap. The other unique thing with this deal is that each pack comes with prim feet that match the tone, so if you like going to the beach shoeless, or running around the house nude, and would like some sculpted feet to match your skin, you need not look any further.

Skin-Aa Production: N’soah Skin (Instore Deal – L$10 for 24 hours-less then 12 hours at time of this post)
Eyes-Repulse: Zombie V2 Eyes in Tan for the “A Depraved New Years” Hunt (Hunt Item – L$0)

Eyes-Skin Within: Fiction Eyes (Instore Gift – L$0)

Lastly Imagen is having a clearance sale. Skins and Jewelry are set for L$10, you will see red tags on the sales items. Also the Eyes are set to L$10, I think that is the regular price, cause there wasn’t a red tag, but still a good deal, as they look really nice. There are many mens skins, I just got the one, and a buttload of Womens skins. The clearance goes until Feb. 1st.

Skin-Imagen: Ander Norte Tone in Stubble Face Option (Instore Deal – L$10 until Feb. 1st-more skins up for grabs here too)
Eyes-Skin Within: Guess Eyes (Instore Gift – L$0)

The Brocade Beckons

I had the chance to meet a wonderful person in sl. While out doing The Seasons hunt, I noticed I had an IM. To my surprise it was someone commenting that they liked my avatar(I was wearing a suit, but still had the rest of the Devil outfit on). We got chatting, and then I managed to convince her to go on the rest of the hunt with me.

Well today she decided to show me some places with free items that she has enjoyed in the past, so here I am sharing her knowledge with you!

Lapointe & Bastchild has 2 freebie areas dedicated to bringing both males and females items to get them started on their way. Today I am wearing one of the newer items placed in the free area. It’s a brocade suit, that comes with 3 different coloured shirts. The boots are also a new offer, and they come in a white version aswell. I wanted to do something with this hair for a while now, and felt this was the right time to bring it out. It’s from Wasabi Pills, and you can pick it up at Savoir Hair Headquarters. The skin is from Trap, and there is a matching womens one in the pack too! I used some eyes I got at Shine, I figured I might as well tie in the colour of my eyebrows, and these flame eyes were perfect. All the male poses used in this post are from Be Real, and they are up for grabs too!

Wearing:

Hair-Wasabi Pills: Hedeon in Sapphire (Free at Savior Hair Headquarters – L$0)
Eyes-Shine: Covet Flame Eyes (Instore Gift – L$0)
Skin-Trap: Axel Skin (Instore Item – L$1)
Suit-Lapointe & Bastchild: Brocade Mystique Black Suit/Blue Shirt (Instore Gift – L$0)
Boots-Lapointe & Bastchild: Narcisse Boots (Instore Gift – L$0)

The Devil has lots of numbers, why the hell does he need yours?

Hi everyone!

So there was a bit of drama last week, some of you may know about it, some of you may not. Either way it doesn’t matter much. I do have to say in response to all of you that sent me notecards, RL came up, and I was across country for the week for work. It had nothing to do with the above said drama.

Altho the drama itself was very negative, it has allowed me to sit back and look at a few things I’d been doing differently on this blog, from my own blog.

I hope you enjoy the changes I will be implementing.

So here I am, The Devil, come to tempt you. I have done so with the whole Senior Team of FabFree, you know The Devil is a manwhore at heart? People don’t understand why I got the job here. I could yet again say it’s due to me being The Devil, oh wait, I guess I did just say it again. I’m so good that Renee, Whisper and Carson don’t even know why they accepted a noob like me on the team to begin with. There are rumors of how I got to the top, like with most professions. You don’t become the devil overnight. Could explain why I always seem to have my shirt off in these posts. You know, after my first post and all, that orange shirt, I’m told it’s best to keep them off, the viewers would rather see my nipples then that sort of shading again. But what do I know? Noob remember, ’cause that explains all. At least you can tell I’m clean(whilst wearing no shirt), and not that dirty guy sitting in the corner of that party, with some O Dur Toilet(yes I know it’s really Eau de Toilette, kkthanxbye).

The Devil is wearing:

Hair-Bryce Designs: Icarus in Ink (Instore Gift – L$0)
Horns-Tekeli-li: Efreet Horns (Instore Item – L$1)
Eyes-Birth: Demon Eyes (Inworld Group Gift – L$0)
Piercing-Dark Desires Custom Tattoos: Ankh Cross Lip Piercing (Hunt Item – L$0)
Skin-Birth: Demonskin (Inworld Group Gift – L$0)
Tattoo on Arms-NeoIcanadi: Elements Tattoo (The Marketplace Gift – L$0)
Tattoo on Chest-XWD Studio: Stay far from Me in medium tone (Part of a Gift at KMadd Freebie Center – L$0)
Wings-Material Squirrel: Mercure Galant Wings in Red (Lucky Board – L$0)
Dagger-Tekeli-li: Efreet Dagger (Instore Item – L$1)

Hey Mr.DJ

I really didn’t know how best to top my Octopus dress fiasco.

I took a few days to go about, trying to get inspired, and gave up.

When at DV8, I saw this kilt, and said oh yes, that is the one. It is one of the new group gifts from the store. The nice thing about the store is that the designers offer a lot to both sexes. Could be the fact that it’s a guy/girl team. I always see them talking in their group chat, sometimes just to shout the word bacon, and see who comes running. All the bits on this kilt are colour changeable. There is another colour in the MM board and a few different ones in the lucky chairs, if you not so up on Olive.

I for some reason thought that the kilt needed wings, and not really knowing where to go for free ones, I just hopped on to good old trusty SL Marketplace. I found a box that said Old Crap. I open said box. Throw on some wings.

Now these wings aren’t the best out there, this I know, even the designer says so on the marketplace ad. If you can’t handle glow on your computer, they wont impress your next date much, unless they are blind. But with glow, they are fab!

Now I’m not wearing my normal shape, it’s actually part of a package(not free) at the Dressing Room. Because of this I’m a lot shorter than usual, and it makes the kilt go into the floor. So you may need to mod it a bit to get it not to drag. It’s fine on my 7 foot shape(dude I’m really 7 feet, crazy!).

The tattoo is from Para Designs. They often are in hunts, and they have a very generous front desk filled with free and cheap items as a sample of the store’s quality goods.

Renee told me to go to Boon, and I already did, but sort of forgot to unpack the hair(probly, yes PROBLY,  got distracted sorting my makeup layers). I really like this messy look, and how you have to shift sideways to actually see my eyes. Oh! the eyes! they are made of real prims, and colour change. I’m wearing some headphones from SL Marketplace too, and tinted them to match the kilt. The skin is another offer at The Dressing Room(also not free).

I felt sort of spacey, and had been wanting to wear this necklace from Scars for a bit. I’m really glad it works and that I could share it with you. The necklaces come in both male and female sizes.

BOOTS! These bad boys you can get at KMadd’s Freebie Area. They are an offer from CheerNo. I don’t even take great photos and they look lickable. Don’t worry, I just took the tissue off them, so they aren’t even dirty.

Hair-Boon: IRK178 Hair in Chestnut (Instore Group Gift – L$0)
Headphones-Luminotic: (The Marketplace Gift – L$0)
Eyes-Primal Groove: Cyber Prim eyes (The Marketplace Gift – L$0)
Skin-CheerNo: Brent in Fireworks (Part of Discount Package – L$70)
Shape-CheerNo: SGAHOM Shape (Part of Discount Package – L$70)
Necklace-Scars: Saturn Necklace in Gold (Instore Gift – L$0)
Tattoo-Para Designs: Gypsy Tattoo (Instore Gift – L$0)
Wings-Luminotic: (The Marketplace Gift – L$0)
Kilt-DV8: Nihilus Cyber Kilt in Fallout (Instore Group Gift – L$0)
Boots-CheerNo: YAJI Boots in Monalisa-Two tones (Gift at KMadd Freebie Center – L$0)

I was posting photos on my flickr last night, when I saw this amazing hunt gift from the “What’s the News” Hunt. I had to figure out what to do with it. It was pink, it was a dress, AND IT MUST BE MINE! You can see it in all it’s female glory post “Stolan Butcherage”. Dagmar posted pics HERE and Raven posted pics HERE. The hunt has a tonne of male items, but that would be too easy for me to blog right? Want to know more about the hunt? Go to the official blog HERE.

 

So the amazing designer from Diavolicious made the dress. The store itself is a fun one, and she does seem to make at least one male item for ever 2 or 3 female ones. Now the dress is just as amazing as most of Diav Draconia’s creations. I just had to see what I could do with it, and tho not my colour, it was too good to pass up.

I then started my quest to become an Octo-somethingorother.

I found this awesome Seaserpent tattoo on the Depraved Newyears hunt. It is the gift from Endless Pain Tattoos. The hair is from this totally awesome hair store called Black Maria. Now I have seen their hairs on the feeds and various blogs, but it always seems to be the same ones. They off a bunch of nice ones, so experiment a bit. The store isn’t for the tame of heart, you wont find normal here!

Yesterday I got a nice tip in the FabFree chatgroup inworld about a place that offers skins for Guys and Chics. It’s Called Heaven’s Gate, and this skin had to be my favorite out of all offered there. Other than the lovely Vampire Bride Skins, I’m a little envious of you ladies being able to get those, you all need to have them. Once in inventory, go on mass and storm the grid. We’ll make it a national SL holiday.

I figured not all of you might have visited my blog, so I’m throwing on the first makeup I ever found, that is free on The Marketplace. It is perfect for this, cause tho it is a crying type makeup, it can also work for octopus ink.

The Eyes are part of the big giftpack sent to the Plastik group. There is a bunch of stuff in the notices, but not for much longer. Mostly for the ladies(there are even skins!) but there are a few male items, and unisex. There is also the option of doing what I do, and just butcher things to work for the men. People need to play more.

I was feeling fairly good about all this, then noticed the top of the dress sort of looked silly. It would normally connect to the top, but ya, I wasn’t wearing it. So I figured a belt would hide the seem enough to not look silly. I switched the attachment point of a Sey belt I had picked up, and perfect! All done!

Wait!

Something is still missing! Oh right, a big ass weapon, how could I forget?

I was told to go to a place called OMFG(ya it really stands for that). Failed Inventor, the original avi behind the store label, has now retired his store items, but due to popular request, he has brought his alt’s inventory back out in one big free box. Be careful when you unpack it, it really is the whole store full of inventory that plops out at once.

Failed Inventor now makes sculpt packs for creators to use in their products. He even has a free one for offer(I’m not telling you where it is tho, you will have to take the time to look), so even if mass amounts of weapons and armour isn’t your thing, it’s worth a visit to look around.

The only other way to make this outfit even more perfect would be to get an underwear layer that was V2 enabled Alpha, so that your legs would hide. You could swim around with the mermaids, and maybe pick up one. I hear tentacles are the new pink, even when they are pink!

Hair-Black Maria: Lightning in Mix 2 (Instore Gift – L$0)
Eyes-Plastik: Frozen Soul Eyes in PinkRain (Inworld Group Gift – L$0)
Makeup-AKA: Black Tears V2 Makeup Layer (The Marketplace Gift – L$0)
Skin-Heaven’s Gate: Shirou 2 Skin (Instore Group Gift – L$0)
Tattoos-Endless Pain Tattoos: Designer actually didn’t name the tattoo anything—>Unhappyface (Hunt Item – L$0)

It be me! Stolan!

Hello everyone!

So excited to be here on this blog, glad to be a part of something bigger then just myself.

I really wasn’t sure how I was going to do my first post on here. I don’t follow any styles or rules really, I have yet to find my “Look”.

What I am going to do today is show you some really fun stuff I have been lucky enough to put together in a totally me sort of way. You’ll notice tho I may not be big on any certain style, I do love me some colour, and playing with things that might not be ment for men.

I also love LOVE challenges!

So it all started with these pants. There are actually 3 different colours on offer, but these ones just popped out for me. “Grab me up Stolan, hurry HURRY!” I can’t really tell you too much about the store(called Rude Rebel) other then it’s somewhat newish. The port that worried me was the shirt. I did not have a thing to go with these pants. Then I was contacted by Song Grayson. She gave me the answer I needed, tho at the time I did not know it. Song gave me a bunch of giftcards to a few different stores that carried male product. I went to the first place, Grumble Grumble, and found this orange shirt. Now sadly I can’t share the giftcard with everyone, but never fear! This shirt is a mear L$25!

I completed my look with a skin from Towa, out as a newyears gift instore. Then I threw on hair from Scars. I did however tint it to make it fit with orangy goodness a bit more.

I thought it would be good to show the awesomeness of this skin a bit, so you get another great hair find! This one is the Amacci SoM gift, and it even has a chic hair in the pack. These eyes are a new release from MysTique Salon. They are set for free until later tonight, so you got to go grab them really fast!

Eyes-MysTique Salon: New Moon Eyes in Amber (Discounted New Release – L$0 for a very limited time)

Pants-Rude Rebel: Asian Pants in Brown (Instore Gift – L$0)

Hair-Amacci: Marc in Brown Auburn (SoM Gift- L$0)

I even managed to find boots! Took me a bit to learn how to mod them, but hey that is a part of the process right?

Boots-PeppermentBlue Bar: Leather Boots in Redish Brown (SoM Gift – L$0)

Now I couldn’t just do one outfit, had to do two!

Photos Nikolaidis dropped me this awesome package, which I didn’t even need to see to know it would be top notch. I visited his store on my 2 day in, cause I heard he had guyliner. I then had to retell my story about my wonderful store find, all the while calling the store ass. I was then grilled and told, no it’s not ass it’s A.S.S.(Another Shirt Shop). Still one of my fav places.

This silk however is not from A.S.S. itself, but from Photos’ other project, Al Jamal. It is the gift for the hunt “What’s the News”. It started on Jan 1st. For more info on the actual hunt, visit the blog here: http://w-t-n.blogspot.com/

I felt I needed a darker skin to go with it, to really show it off. I was in luck when I got a notice from the Skinthesis group I am inn. They still had their Make Him Over 5 huntgift out! But only until the end of today! So if you wish to have this wonderfully dark skin, you better go hunting, it’s not to hard, and there are hints in the group notices. I gave myself an edgier look with the mini mohawk

I just had to do a close up shot of the detail and quality of this silkset. Honest, not trying to show off my kendoll manjunk. It just happens to be there.

***Special Thanks~~~

To all those that have welcomed me today, to all those who have given me things, to all those who have sent me landmarks and links to great deals, to all those who have helped me out when I needed it.

Now I know that was long, sorry I like to talk, so if you all don’t want me talking so much I can l keep that to my own blog, and just do more simpler posts. I can say they all wont be this crazy. I think I may have gotten a wee bit too excited =)

Till next time!
