Blogger Attempts To Increase Popularity By Appearing Nearly Naked!

whc slavie lkd 1

With all the lovely Fab Free bloggers, I’m sure you will all be disappointed that the nearly-naked one is me. However, since I already have your attention, here is another helping of amazing prizes from the Menstuff Hunt. It is a 1L hunt, but many of the stores have put their prizes out for free! I realize that the outfit I am wearing will not appeal to every male avy on the grid. Some of us have very few opportunities to wear something like this. Being a blogger, though, is about helping all people find wonderful items. A great set of silks like this could come in handy one day for a rowdy intimate role play or a costume-based event, even if you are not naturally submissive. The Kanzi Silks in Brown from Lo Kajirus Designs are partially mesh, with flexi silk panels which move beautifully as you dance. In style, they have an Asian inspired design while maintaining a classic silk look appropriate for this kind of garment. This is a very sexy look, has tons of style and is a great item to pick up at only 1L.

In all of the pictures in this post, I am wearing a set of eyes I picked up in the Menstuff Hunt over at Avi-Glam. The FREE AG Frozen Eyes are a beautiful light silvery blue and are going right into my eye collection. I am especially excited because I was unfamiliar with Avi-Glam until now, so now I have another potential source of excellent quality eyes thanks to this hunt!

This pose is another prize from this Menstuff hunt. Hopefully, you are getting the idea of how broad the spectrum of hunt prizes is in this one-hundred-store hunt. The M-Sheer-Menstuff-10 from Pics n Poses is a particularly nice pose, best used highlighting the left shoulder and chest of the model. I used it turning slightly, to show more of the details in the front of the Kanzi Silks, and it worked nicely. This is a very nice FREE gift from the people at Pics n Poses.

whc gray pin suit 1_001

Slipping into something a little more comfortable (for you to see me in), this really great gray suit is the FREE Menstuff Hunt prize from (Red)Sand. The Pin Stripe Suit in gray is a set including a matching mesh pin stripe blazer and slacks. The blazer has the black, open-collar dress shirt integrated into it, and (Red)Sand thoughtfully included an optional gap hiding layer, just in case you need it. As it turns out, I did not. The fit was excellent on my avatar without it. The material looks soft and comfortable; it will go nicely in my smart casual wardrobe for those nights that call for a bit more than a T-Shirt and jeans.

whc oddity orn 4_001

Oddity is an excellent store on Second Life and has created some truly amazing items, including a pair of group gift boots that are SO good, I changed the rules of my blog just so I could write them up! For the Menstuff Hunt, their prize is this unique fitmesh shirt featuring an excellent texture hud that they are giving to us for FREE! The Eivissa Mistic BASIC Shirt is definitely casual but highly attention getting with the realistic cloth textures and rich, decorative detailing. The buttons appear to be metal, standing out from the shirt and the button holes are closed loops, an eye-catching touch. The best part about the shirt, though, is the texture hud that comes with it. It offers the shirt in six colors, the trim in six colors, the buttons in six colors, plus it has two options for brightness and the choice of it being materials-enabled or not! If there was an award for most fantastic hud on Menstuff Hunt prize, Oddity would win it hands down for creating this prize!

The black jeans I chose to help show off this shirt are part of the Menstuff hunt prize from Wilson’s Designs. These are simply styled and carry a nice black denim texture making them a good choice for a go-to mesh set of basic black jeans. That isn’t all you’ll find in the hunt prize over at Wilson’s Designs. These jeans come with a gray, zippered men’s jacket, too, making the hunt prize even greater. For a FREE hunt prize, this is a very good pick up as well.

My last highlighted item this week comes from a creator who is one of my personal favorites. Over the years, Etham has made – and yes, even given away as hunt gifts – some gorgeous crosses. For this Menstuff hunt they have given us the Knight Cross Necklace in gold and black. Although it would look especially great in a Goth style outfit, it is still simple enough to be worn with more casual clothes. The Knight Cross Necklace comes with a short or long chain version and is offered to us for FREE from Etham.

I began this week’s post nearly naked; slithering about to some intoxicating world beat music under the glare of the hot desert sun, and managed to end the post sharing with you my affinity for the crosses Etham has produced over the years. I, my friends, am not easily pigeon-holed. As a blogger, that means I am inclined to share a wide variety of items instead of just those that are “my style”. Or, it might just mean I am crazy. Either way, have fun looking for the little blue T-Shirts that hold the Menstuff prizes in them, and I will be seeing you on the grid very soon!—–WHC Riler

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Explore ValyniaGood morning fabulous friends! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Wednesday, June 10.

Summer is the prevalent hunt theme right now. Go figure. You can partake of a bunch of different summer themed hunts, so grab your swimsuit, beach towel, and flip-flops and get some hot weather hunting done.

The Explore Valyria Hunt is the top hunt this week. It’s a sim hunt, but what a bunch of great stores in this sim…Etchaflesh, 7 Deadly Skins, KlubWerk, and Room69! Lots of great prizes to find in this one.

If you’re a her, then the For Her Hunt has been built for you. It’s a L$1 hunt with 22 stops. So a couple hours of hunting will get you all kinds of clothing, shoes, and jewelry. I browsed through the prize pics on the hunt web site and there’s some pretty nice stuff in this one. Too bad I’m a him.

Just a reminder, that these are the 10 most popular viewed hunts over the past 48 hours or so. We don’t know how many people actually start (or finish) any given hunt and this ranking can (and probably will) change in a few hours.

See you out on the hunt!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL menstuffLogo-512It’s always fun when somebody tells you how much they love what you do. I was setting up our build for the SL12B Community Celebration and the area assistant who was helping me with the parcel details saw the exhibits and said “oh… I love hunts! Do you have a group?” It’s warm fuzzies like that which make my day.

There are some dang good hunts going on right now. The June hunts are in full swing. I have to get it in gear and do the Menstuff Hunt. It’s one of my favorites from previous years and the source of about half my wardrobe. No joke!

Both FabFree and HUNT SL have excellent pages if you want to get started with hunting. It’s really pretty easy. If you can walk, cam, and solve clues at the same time, you’ll be a natural. No really… it’s not that hard.

So click the names of the hunts that look interesting to you. You’ll be whisked off to more info.

See you out on the hunt!

Once in a Blue Moon

Happy Monday and Happy Memorial Day, FabFree Folks! This is a three day weekend for a bunch of us and outings to the beach are in the plans for many of us. With that in mind, I headed over to Blue Moon Enterprises to pick up their new Group Gift: the Sea Side outfit.

bluemoon_003

The Sea Side ensemble comes with the resizable Mesh bikini top and the cute rigged Mesh skirt in the standard sizes.  Plus it includes the corsage of shells on the left as a separate piece. The fringe of beads around the hips is also a separate piece and is resizable for a custom fit. Right now, Blue Moon Enterprises Group is free to join making this flirty little mermaid-y bikini all free for you.

In the midst of the picnics and cook outs on this holiday weekend, don’t forget to thank all of our Military members, past and present, for their service and sacrifice.
