Precious Nobility

Today I feel like a queen… and I have just the stuff to make you feel like one too. A cart wash dress here… some group gifts there… and it will all come together like a Precious Noble Creation.

Precious Nobility [2]

If you haven’t stopped by the Precious Designs Cart at the Cart Wash sale yet, you simply do NOT want to miss out on the offerings this designer has set out for you at just 10L each. In the picture above, I am showcasing the Fire Work dress for you in all its glory and fine detail. For just 10L the dress comes in all the standard mesh sizes, plus fitted mesh as well as custom mesh fits for Maitreya and Slink Bodies AND a color change hud with SIX color options — that’s a lot of dress for 10L!

You’ll also notice my noble gold crown, courtesy of the newly opened Noble Creations. It has rich detail fitting for any queen, princess, goddess, lover of fantasy, or roleplayer and has a nifty resize script included. It is one of several FREE Inauguration Group Gifts (the group is FREE to join) that they are offering for their store’s opening.

Noble Creations is also giving out several other fabulous FREE Inauguration Group Gifts to celebrate their opening and you won’t want to miss out. Above you can see the intricately detailed and carved Antique Coffee Table with its inlaid wood and added knobs in different colors and sizes on the sides. This was a paired gift that came with the elaborate Antique Sofa that Astrid is reclining on, which includes single sits and lays for females and males as well as a few couple cuddles. Both of these items were FREE, low prim, and also included a color change hud with four color choices!

In addition, behind Astrid you will see a rich and thick Noble Creations Mesh Curtain. Just like the Antique Sofa, this too is a FREE Inauguration Group Gift, is low prim, and comes with a color change hud with four color choices, and is also resizable to add to its versatility. Be sure to grab these gifts up before they are gone!

While you are at it, make sure to stop by the Precious Designs Cart at the Cart Wash Sale. These outfits are simply fit for a queen! Or at least any Second Life Fashionista! Check out the offerings on the cart below!

On The Hunt Once Again!

whc moh razor3_001

Hello, everyone. Welcome to my favorite time of the year in Second Life (which is any time a major men’s clothing hunt is going on). Everyone knows I have been waiting for this hunt for weeks and I am happy to say it has been a highly enjoyable event, providing some excellent quality items. Before describing the items in the above picture, I would like you to click on it. That will bring you to my flickr. Then, click once more to see the picture in its’ original resolution. The reason I invite you to do this is because the more detailed picture, the more impressed you will be with the items’ quality.

The first item I want to show you from The Men’s Only Hunt is the tattoo I am wearing. Honestly, it is the best, most comprehensive FREE gift tattoo I have ever seen. The level of detail in this tattoo is simply unbelievable! Take a close look at the About That Life Tattoo & Sleeves from Inhale and you will probably understand why I am so excited. While the level of detail packed in this tat makes it an excellent hunt gift, there is something else that makes it a must-have hunt item. In addition to being wearable for regular basic avies, it also contains appliers for Omega, Signature and TMP Mesh avies! Inhale has even included a Slink hands version! This is a fantastic tattoo and, if you later decide to go with a Mesh avatar, it is highly likely you will still be able to wear it. The Men’s Only Hunt is a FREE hunt and will be going on until September 13th. Look for the cool, frothy beer hunt object to find your gift. Don’t miss out on this tat!

This is the first time I am posting this style of sweatpants. While undoubtedly popular, they aren’t my usual style in real life. Until now, I have never gotten one in a hunt that was so excellent that I literally HAD to post them! Take a look at these Blue Mack Sweats, the FREE Men’s Only Hunt prize from Razor. I am a long-time fan of their high quality, edgy style of street wear. When I unpacked these sweatpants, I was blown away with their first-rate quality. The material looks soft, and the mesh design looks highly realistic, right down to having a great amount of pocket space. Combine that with the brilliant blue and black colors of the sweatpants and you have another must pickup from The Men’s Only Hunt. I know many Fab Free readers will be interested to learn that this gift includes a FEMALE VERSION in addition to the male one. It isn’t every day I get to catch the ladies’ attention, so thank you very much Razor!

A friend of mine who helped me on the hunt was looking for a cool pair of sunglasses. The Farewell Summer Glasses from 7Mad;Ravens fit the bill perfectly. Dark and stylish, this FREE Men’s Only Hunt gift has a very subtle touch of color across the top of the frame, and WOW, do I love that touch! These glasses look superb and are another item from the above pic that will impress you more the closer you look.

I couldn’t resist going all out for the pic, so I included the FREE Men’s Only Hunt gift from Legal Insanity for a touch of street cred. The Biker Necklace is a tough-looking heavy pair of gold chains. Often gold jewelry on SL can look unrealistic, but this necklace does not suffer from the common mistake of being overly yellow and bright. I was truly impressed with the looks of this pixel treasure from the fine folks at Legal Insanity and I hope you will enjoy it too.

The final item to highlight in the above picture is my new bracelet. A FREE Men’s Only Hunt gift from Apple May Designs, the Men’s Forged Cuffs look fantastic. The texture gives it a hammered by hand look, making it appear to be a piece of finely crafted jewelry. My picture does not even showcase the entire gift. Although I show it on my right wrist alone, the hunt prize actually includes both right and left wrist versions. Both come in two colors: chocolate bronze and steel finish. It is a highly versatile hunt gift, and yet another reason you should be doing the Men’s Only Hunt this month!

whc laundry day 1_001

I usually wear the same type of clothing in Second Life that I would wear in real life, simple like soft cotton T-Shirts and jeans, or something smart and dressy looking. A perfect example of my kind of T-Shirt is this wonderfully textured Dexter Mesh Tee from Sharp By [ZD]. Emblazoned with the words “Laundry Today OR naked tomorrow,” I even feel as if it fits into my rl lifestyle. I am naked a lot of the time, but I am not actually a naturist. I am just too lazy to do laundry very often. For all the guys out there that totally understand where I am coming from, this T-Shirt is for you. It comes in three Mesh sizes and two FitMesh ones, and is actually pre-stained to give it that authentic laundry day apparel look! Like the other items from the Men’s Only Hunt this month, it is FREE for the taking.

Lately, I have been posting a surprising amount of hair. Usually, male hair is a very tough find for free or even extremely inexpensive. It is one of the main challenges as far as building a new male avy for a reasonable price. I don’t know why we have been blessed with such a wide variety of good free hair lately, but I am quite happy about it. My wash day hair is the new FREE Men’s Only Hunt gift from Ayashi. Their Toma hair in black was perfect for this pic, just the right mix of spiky and unkempt for the Laundromat. Remember, for this and all the other items on the Men’s Only Hunt, the hunt object you are looking for is a cool, frothy beer.

Finally, I couldn’t hit the “send” button on this post without mentioning the pose I used for the wash day picture. It is one of three poses included in the FREE Men’s Only Hunt gift from Verocity! It looks excellent and is a pose I will undoubtedly use many more times over the years to show off men’s garments.

Hopefully, that’s enough to tempt you to discover the joys of hunting in Second Life. With patience, it can be highly rewarding. Stay tuned for next week’s continued coverage of The Men’s Only Hunt where I will try to tempt you into hunting by sharing more of the rich treasures to be had for FREE! Until then my friends, see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler

Is it Wine-O-Clock Yet?

Vintage & Cool FairHello Fab Free’rs! If you haven’t been out to the Vintage & Cool Fair, I strongly recommend you go.  The fair ends in just 3 days, and it’s enormous, but well worth the visit. Several of the designers have set out inexpensive gifts along with their Vintage & Cool Fair exclusives. I was able to put together almost this complete look using just a few of the gifts I came across. There are several other gifts that are equally nice, however these ones just happened to go together so well.

Vintage & Cool Gifts

Starting from top to bottom, I love these sort of bohemian feathered earrings. They are a FREE Vintage & Cool Fair gift from Mon Cheri. This great gift includes the earrings in this ruby color shown, as well as black, pink, and azure. Next, the septum piercing is dollarbie a Vintage & Cool Fair gift from Macabre. I really like how delicate it looks, almost like lace. I think a lot of septum piercings can be very dramatic, this one has an almost dainty look to it.

One key to a great wardrobe is to have several base pieces that you can mix and match. This pencil skirt is just that, you could easily dress it up or down. The skirt is the Vintage & Cool Fair gift from [trs] that you can pick up for just 1 linden. I really like the color, it’s perfect for fall. The skirt is partial mesh, and includes a system layer and an omega applier. Finally, how pretty are these shoes?! I think they look very stylish on. These heels are a dollarbie Vintage & Cool Fair gift from Essenz, and in the box you get a Slink fit pair, and a Maitreya fit pair, also there is a color change hud for the metal bits. I really like this outfit, and it cost next to nothing, I hope you like it too!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

The Bi Annual Wash Cart Sale – Dark Water Designs

Dark Water Designs is one of those designers that never fails to impress me.

The Bi Annual Wash Cart Sale - Dark Water Designs

And the Cart this designer has set up for us at the Wash’s sale is no exception. I had no trouble picking out what I wanted to show this time. Not because everything wasn’t awesome but because when I saw the Lolita Jumper I was in love! It’s a simple thing but the details are amazing. I love the color, the pattern … just everything. You get the five standard Mesh sizes and the alpha.

An Enchanted Oceane

The Enchantment Hunt drew me back again, as well as the chance to show off some fabulous goodies at two other stores. If your into cosplay or fantasy roleplay… this is your month to make away like a bandit — or mermaid as the case may be!

Enchanted Oceane [2]

I recently checked out the FREE Ball at Analog Dog and discovered it had been updated. There are a few new styles inside, including this great rigged mesh style called Lolly all for FREE. It comes in light reds with a color change hud and though you have to hunt for the nearly transparent bubble at the back of the sim, it’s well worth the search!

I also stopped by Oceane and played the in-store Gachas which had some really wonderful prizes for lovers of fantasy avatars! My Oceane Lauren Fantasy Skin in Blue was a 75L gacha prize and was just perfect for this underwater look — but don’t hesitate to check this one out even if blue is not your color, because the gacha had 19 total colors as possible prizes. It does not come with appliers, but don’t let that deter you. I usually have a difficult time matching skins without them, but was able to match this skin to my Slink hands within minutes because the shading near the wrists is made to blend so easily.

I also played the Oceane Fairytale Lips gacha and landed the Rainbow Rare hook line and sinker to add to my skin. Woot! It was only 50L per spin and added a nice touch to this fantasy skin.

And all mermaids have to eat, yes? If you peek at the picture below, my fun Swallow Yum Fishie (20 possible colors) was a 15L Gacha prize also from Oceane.

Enchanted Oceane [1]

And the Enchantment hunt continues, but only until September 5th, so be sure to make your final rounds to pick up the fabulous gifts before you miss out. In this post, I’m showcasing a few more for you! These two poses are the FREE hunt gifts from [Black Tulip] called Ariel. Astrid’s stunning mesh mermaid tail and bra are the FREE Enchantment gift from Mer-Chandise Cove.

You’ll have to look a little closer at the pictures to catch the final gifts I’m showing, but I’ve always been a firm believer that small details are what make an avatar stand out. My pink nose piercing (which comes with a color change hud offering over 20 color options as well as options to change glow, glossiness, and and brightness) is the FREE Enchantment Hunt Gift from Gaeline Creations.

If you take a swim by no.Match, you’ll be able to pick up this gorgeously detailed Mermaids Hairpin as their FREE offering for the Enchantment Hunt. And last (but certainly not least) Astrid’s mysterious, come-hither eyes are a FREE Enchantment Hunt gift from antielle. There are six generous color choices in the package, though I’m wearing the blue.

A Swan in Eden

I think I can turn just about anything into a fantasy of some sort…

A Swan in Eden [2]

… and so far I’m having a blast with the Cart Wash Sale!

There are so many amazing creators who are giving us SL fashionistas a great chance to enhance our wardrobe for minimal wallet guilt and it’s truly glorious. And the Less Than 3 cart at the Wash Sale stole my heart with its sexy Eden Jumpsuits!

What I love about this super sexy cut-out body suit is that with the right accessories and in the right environment, it works for fetish wear, casual wear, fantasy wear — you name it! And not only did it come in system layers — but for only 10L you get omega appliers to work with your mesh body as well! (I’m showcasing it here in the white version with my Maitreya Lara Mesh body.)

The body suit also comes in a gorgeous hot pink color, as well as a rich brown, and a svelte black that were all only 10L each. I’d be sure to grab up all these colors as this is a steal of a deal you won’t want to pass up!

A Swan in Eden [1]

For me the perfect accessory to make this sensuous body suit fit my fantasy wardrobe was the newest group gift from Finesmith Jewelry. The lovely lavender headpiece and necklace — aptly named Swan Garden — were striking when paired with this body suit and gave it the fantasy look I desired. The Group Gift is free if you are in the Group, and the Group is only 25L to join… well worth it in my mind considering that there are many past gifts still available to pick up. Just turn to your left as you enter the store!

Below is a picture of the other Less Than 3 Cart Wash offerings. As you can see, they are all fantastic! Be sure to stop by this fun cart and make off with the goodies!

The Bi Annual Wash Cart Sale – Rowena’s Designs

The Bi Annual Wash Cart Sale is now in full swing!

cartsale_001

There are so many nifty things this round that I can hardly pick what to show off first! I picked Rowena’s Designs lovely ‘Lilian’ complete set because it just is so stunning. Plus it’s not often I see an entire set that I love every single piece like this one. I’m wearing the Lilian Dress in the five Mesh sizes, plus the shoes for SLink High Feet plus the jewelry set. So that’s just 30L for an entire evening outfit! The jewelry set is a particular bargain, you get the ring, the bracelet, the necklace and the earrings AND a Hud to change up the metal, the accent color and the gem stones.  Both the dress and the shoes come with a color change HUD with six options. This is a LOT of outfit for very little out of pocket.

You have until September 16th to come on down to the Wash and fill up your closet!
