Should The Evenings Grow Cooler…

 

whc kauna fall 1

We are enjoying a beautiful summer now, my favorite season of the year. In real life, I am a warm-weather creature and even in Second Life I tend to avoid cold areas – lest I lose a few pixels to virtual frostbite. However, one pleasant surprise for me lately was seeing some excellent fall wardrobe items pop up this early in the year. I have decided to take a few minutes of valuable beach time and devote them to sharing some cooler weather clothing that has recently been offered to us, the male bargain hunters of Second Life.

The FREE FaMeshed group gift this month comes from Kauna and includes the diamond orange sweater, the steel blue XIV shirt and tweed overcheck trousers (not shown here). All three items are of excellent quality and look very much like real life clothing. The sweater is beautifully shaded and textured. I bet by the time fall arrives, it will be my favorite pullover. The realistic steel blue XIV shirt looks great without the sweater as well. The tweed overcheck trousers have a beautiful dark texture on them and are definitely a keeper, but for the pic I opted for sharp black tuxedo trousers that I bought from Kauna recently. The main reason I couldn’t wait to show you this though is located in the “additional items” box inside the group gift. Kauna, in addition to a generous array of options and sizes included in this gift, added a bonus box with some extra variations as well. This means you can wear both the sweater and that beautiful blue shirt under that amazing men’s Kuana leather jacket that they gave away last month at FaMeshed! The Jacket, which I blogged here previously looks fantastic! I have been on the lookout for some great things to wear under it, and this is a perfect chance to get a sweater and a shirt that look absolutely perfect with it! In case you missed it when Tiana posted it previously here, you finally have a second chance to pick it up. Hurry though, the month is nearly over, and whether you were lucky enough to get the jacket last month or not, this is a great chance to get very high quality clothing for FREE!

IKON is offering another FREE group gift for a very limited time. If you click the above picture, and once you are in my flickr, click the picture once more, you will get a closer look at the IKON Odyssey Eyes – Clarity. They are a light gray-ish blue with distinctively shaped pupils and plenty of reflections. They are Mesh, but could be used as system eyes if you prefer. They even included a hud to make fitting and selecting options easier. I don’t expect them to be out long, so run to IKON to pick up these FREE eyes while they are still available.

whc fall Fe Style 1

The Menstuff Hunt has been great this time around. All month I have been posting fabulous clothing and items that were part of it. Now, with the hunt ending at the end of the month, this is my last chance to share some items with you that I thought worthy of special attention. Fe Style is offering this light denim jacket that is going to be perfect as the season turns to fall or for a cool summer’s night. The Tartan Denim Jacket is a mesh one-piece including the white T-Shirt, comes in 5 sizes for worry free fit, and looks lightweight and comfortable to wear. I love the range of colors in the jacket! It manages to be multihued, yet is very easy on the eyes with its mix of blues and gray. For the cost of only 1L this is definitely a good pickup, and yet another reason for people to hunt the Menstuff Hunt (even if they haven’t started yet).

The riot of color in the lower two pictures comes courtesy of Come Soon Poses. Their FREE gift for the Menstuff Hunt, *CS* Paparazzo is a beautiful fall-themed photo prop that I am thrilled to put to use already. It comes with a bench and a pose, but you can always move them out of the way and substitute whichever items you intend to use. The colors are vibrant, and when fall comes around this will be an excellent addition to your photo prop collection, or even to your own back yard.

whc fall lovecats 1

The Menstuff Hunt gift from Lovecats is the No Club Jacket, the perfect article of clothing to wrap up my coverage of the Menstuff Hunt for now. It is a one-piece mesh item, but it appears to have 4 layers of clothing (a T-Shirt, shirt, hoodie and jacket) integrated into it. It comes in five sizes for a good fit. Although it is very snug around my waist and required some emergency slider dieting, the great look of the garment more than made up for that tiny inconvenience. “Lone wolf – no club” is emblazoned on the back with a white wolf logo giving it a biker style look. Each part of the mesh looks very realistic and, since it is one piece, it is very easy to wear once you perfect its fit for your avi. Biker style, unbelievably inexpensive, and simple to wear, Fe Style did a superb job on this FREE gift. I hope you like it as much as I do.

Next up, I will be doing the Biker Hunt, which started just two days ago. I want to point out that Tellaq, an excellent store for male skins, has a Midnight Mania board at their main store. The group is required, but it is free. Although the target number seems high, when new skins and avy packages get put up on the board the target is met for several days. I should know, because that Midnight Mania is a regular stop for me on Second Life, and I get nearly every prize package they offer. Tellaq is especially good at darker skins which feature extremely highly defined muscle textures. It just so happens that the skin currently on the midnight mania board is called “Saint” and is perfect for my new biker look, as you can see here. If you are looking for a skin upgrade, haunt the MM board and you will probably come up with something that pleases you. It’s worth the effort.

Well, with my sneak peek into fall now complete, I think I am going to strip off these clothes and hit a nice, quiet beach for a little “me” time. Please, enjoy the rest of the summer with us at Fab Free and don’t worry, we will keep an eye out for amazing deals whatever the season. Until next time, get some sun and I will see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

You Gonna Miss Me, Early In The Morning, One Of These Days

Snapshot_005
Hello Fabulous Readers :)  Just popping by to share news that Luna Sabia has out several ladies mesh dresses as group gifts and lucky board prizes!

Today I am wearing the Maxi Dress Half Sleeve Retro that is available as free group gift after you activate your free inworld group tag.  This dress comes in a full range of sizes with the co-ordinating alpha layer and also works well with the Maitreya Lara Mesh Body alpha layer system.

In my photo I am also displaying a little group gift from Sway’s!  Their group is 250L to join, but after you do, you gain access to a selection of group gifts.  One of those gifts is the Sea Shell Candles I have sprinkled around my little sunshiny lounge corner.  These come in four colour variations and I think these cute shell candles would be very nice as outdoor décor too.

This is the “Lemon Bar” dress, it’s the Hunt prize for More Than Ever’s Cart. I love the cool lemon yellow and the disk detail on the neck are really unusual.

When we walked in fields of gold

Hello and Happy Friday, FabFree Folks! Friday’s festivities for me today started at the fair… the Kustom9 fair to be factual. It was a first for me and I was not frustrated or foiled! In fact, I was fired up with all the financially frugal fantastic finds!

zenith_Blog

whew… okay, that’s out of my system…  Zenith, a designer I am always excited to see at an event, has a gorgeous summery gacha set at Kustom9 this round. This is the ‘Blue Flowers’ summer dress, one of the commons in the gacha.  I love the soft feminine sundress, it has an almost gauzy look to it, perfect for those hot summer days. The cute hair band is another common and it comes in packs of four so you don’t end up playing onesy twosy trying to pull one color out of twenty.

zenith_004

I don’t normally add handbags to my outfits but this one is just too cute to leave out. This is the ‘straw handbag-milk’ also in the Zenith gacha. Each bag comes with a different colored scarf tied to the handle and a hold animation.  Rounding out my accessories are my new white sandals from Lindy’s Modern and Retro Shoes. These are the ‘Chelsea’  sandals for system feet and they are part of the 0L  ‘Advanced or Casual Hunt’ from Fi’s Hunts.. This is Lindy’s ‘casual’ prize.

Kustom9 runs until July 10th and the Advanced or Casual Hunt runs until June 30th

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL here-comes-summer-full-perm-hunt-posterHappy Friday my Fabulous Friends! Summer will be officially here on Sunday… summer solstice… the longest day of the year. Well, for those of us in the northern hemisphere anyway. If you live down under, then it’s mid winter. But that’s neither here nor there. There are a bunch of great hunts going on anyway, and many of them have a summer theme… or at least make a nod in that direction.

We’re starting to see more full-perm hunts, which is great if you’re a builder or a content creator. Check out the Here Comes Summer or the Keep Calm & BBQ Full Perm hunts if you like full-perm stuff.

Both FabFree and HUNT SL have excellent pages if you want to get started with hunting if you haven’t been before, and some great tips even if you’re a veteran hunter.

Check out all these hunts and find the one that’s right for you. Poking the names will lead you to more information.

See you out on the hunt!

One wrong turn…there’s no fiesta in Kowloon!

Happy Thursday everyone! I hope your week has been going by as easily as mine has been. I have to admit, I couldn’t wait for today, as I really, really wanted to share my gorgeous outfit with you. Don’t you just love when you put together a look and everything works so well together that you just want to IM all your friends and go out and party so you can show off? I wanted to find a nice Mexican fiesta, but took a wrong turn and ended up in the neon lit streets of Kowloon. Not really a party place, but it made for a nice backdrop for my pics. I guess I better just get to it and show you what I put together eh?

azulwayne1

It all started with my dress. A friend of mine reminded me of the store AZUL, and how generous they are with putting out a new free group gift every month while leaving some of the older gifts out. I grabbed all of the most recent, fully intending to show you this months offer, until I put on May’s gift. The super sexy, black and white, mesh dress is a show stopper. With its ultra low back, longer-in the back skirt hem, and cute ruffle around the bum, without revealing too much skin, it is a perfect party dress. It comes in all the usual mesh sizes, so everyone should be happy. The AZUL group is free to join, and as I mentioned already, there are several of the past group gifts still out for you to pick up. I have to include a back shot, you understand, right?

azulwayne2

The next logical step in putting my look together…the shoes! Lucky for me, I found the perfect pair while looking around at this weeks round of fi*Friday. First, I want to say how much I love that each fi*Friday round lasts for the whole week, so that even though I post on Thursdays, I can show you something from the current round and it will still be there until tomorrow! OK, onto the shoes. When you buy the Raisa Pumps from Wayne, for SLink high feet, you actually get 4 separate pairs. 2 versions with ankle straps and 2 versions without. What’s even better, they come with 2 colour change huds, one that has gold for the metal accents, and the other is silver. These huds have 20 different colours to choose from. So….if you do the math (and I hope I’ve done it correctly) that is a total of 160 pairs of shoes. Yup…160!! Oh, and they are materials enabled to boot! That gorgeous sheen on all of my pictures is not just a baked texture. All of that, for only L$55…how could I say no. You have until midnight tonight, and then this round of fi*Friday switches over to the new round, so do not wait too long to go grab these.

azulwayne4

Lastly, as I had mentioned that my outfit was making me feel like finding a fiesta…I needed a tropical touch, and it needed to be red to play off of the red I chose for my shoes. Deciding that what I needed was a flower for my hair, I hopped onto the Marketplace to search. I came across the Springtime Hair Flower from AviCandy, that included a 9 different colours of flower, for only L$49. I went with the brights pack to get the red I wanted, but there are 2 other colour variation packs available, so you are sure to find one to match whatever you may be wearing. With as detailed and realistic as these flowers are…you may just want to put together a whole outfit with them as the starter!

azulwayne3

Well…I never did find my party, but that’s ok, as I looked fabulous anyways. I’ll just tune into a salsa music station and make my own party :) Alright lovelies, that is it for me. I will see you all again, same time next week. Until then…TTFN *salsa’s out of the building*

Susy Sells Seashells

Snapshot_002
Hi there Fabulouses! I did myself a little hunting last night and found that Hapi*Rabi has an adorable mesh Susy Dress cleverly hidden inside a For Her Hunt icon.  For just 1L I was able to pick up this sweet off the shoulder, floral printed dress!  You can find this same dress in lavender inside a group lucky board (50L to join) as well if you prefer purple over pink.

It was just sheer luck that the Heart Bag that is the latest free group gift at C’est La Vie had a pink inside the texture change HUD that matched perfectly with this dress!  The C’est La Vie group is free to join.  Check out their lucky board too!

The decorative items in my photo today are all pieces from the Dust Bunny My Summer Retreat Set currently being offered at the June round of The Arcade Gacha for 50L per play.  I was really hoping to get that fancy house boat, but was pleased with the Daisy Shack just the same!  Maybe I’ll go back and try again …  Mowahh ahaa ha ahaaa

Enjoy your day and thanks for reading!

A little magic

It’s Tuesday, it’s Tuesday! And that means it’s 25L Tuesday which is the best sort of Tuesday for us Fantasy fashion fans! And just what IS 25L Tuesdays? Each Tuesday, some of the top Gorean/Fantasy/Role-play content creators Second Life has to offer  will place an item or two in their main store marked for sale at 25L.

tuesday_001

This is the Seppia outfit from Luas . You don’t just get the dress and the bangles I’m showing. There’s also a collar, a necklace and two anklets.  Luas also has a second outfit set out for the 25L sale and if you like something more warrior Amazon you need to check it out!

I saw the Seppia dress and I knew I wanted to add Pure Poison’s goddess sandals which I got ages ago so I popped over to the Pure Poison main store to see if they were still available. Of course, while I was there, I had to check out the group gifts and I saw this gorgeous necklace: the Roxanne. Pure Poison’s group is free to join and there are a ton of past gifts still available including this lovely necklace.

25L Tuesdays only lasts until 11:59 Second Life Time so don’t delay! You do not need to join the 25L Tuesday group to pick up the sale items, just grab the notecard available at the participating merchants.
