The Heat Wave Event: Ruckus

whc ruckus 2

 The Heat Wave Event at The Wash Sim is heating up now, come on out and catch some rays.

It’s a red hot summer and these board shorts from Ruckus are a fantastic reminder to get your summer attitude and head for the shore. They come in three colors and they are only 10L each right now at The Heat Wave Event. This is great beachwear and a perfect reminder that summer is the time for hanging loose. Catch some waves or just catch some rays but don’t let summer get away without a little Ruckus in your life. —–WHC Riler

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!

When The Judge Is Away…Rawr!

whc menstuff sfd 1

Not many people know that I am a lawyer. Luckily, even fewer people know I am NOT a lawyer! That’s how I got chosen for my own layout in “Hot Lawyers Monthly”! Okay, so maybe I feel a little bad about letting them think I am an attorney, but let’s face it: if they were real lawyers, they would be able to tell that I wasn’t one. So, I am taking my modeling fee all the way to the bank… or McDonald’s if there is a line at the bank. I hate lines.

On the First of June, one of the best male hunts of the year began. The Menstuff Hunt features a one-hundred-store lineup and is on all month long. If you are new to doing store hunts, now is the perfect time to give them a try. I can think of a hundred reasons why you should. The hunt is not free. It is technically a 1L hunt, but the organizers allowed stores the option of not charging for their prizes and more than 2/3 of them are FREE! You are looking for an object shaped like a blue T-Shirt, inside of which your prizes await.

For my hot magazine layout, I wore the Menstuff Hunt Prize from SF Design, the Finsbury Outfit. This one-piece Mesh outfit features the shirt, dress pants and suspenders all together in one garment. It really makes looking good very easy when all the pieces are integrated into one item. It makes dressing a snap! You would think that with those items all put together in one prize, the designer might make compromises along the way, but not SF Design. The shirt is well textured and has realistic buttons. The suspenders seem to be in front of the shirt not painted on it. Last but not least, the pants have a classy pinstripe texture. Quality and convenience, it’s all there. Oh, and one last thing… it’s FREE!

I wanted a little something extra to help sell the “I know about law stuff” look I was going for and the Menstuff hunt prize from X-Sight was just what I needed. The X-Sight Geek Glasses in Charcoal lend an air of studiousness that normally can only be acquired by, well… studying. Trust me, finding a hunt object in a store is a lot easier than actually studying. They make a fine accessory to complete a variety of outfits and are also generously offered to us for FREE.

One of my favorite stores on the grid is Illi. When I heard they were participating in the Menstuff Hunt, I knew that was going to be one of the highlights of the hunt. They did not disappoint me. Their Menstuff Hunt 2015 outfit makes for fantastic beachwear. The Mesh tank top is a style I have never seen before. It hangs loosely and has front pockets like some hoodies I own. It makes for a very interesting variation of a tank top that looks great! The shorts are nicely shaped and highly detailed, right down to the plaid cuffs which are actually held up by a strap and a button. I don’t know how often that kind of detail appears in board shorts, but I can tell you it surprised me when I noticed it. The final part of the outfit are the sandals. The ones I am wearing are the classic ones and fit regular avy feet. If you are lucky enough to have Slink feet, The Mesh Project or Aesthetic bodies though, Illi has included versions of them for you in this hunt prize, too! It is an excellent gift and another wonderful FREE gift on the Menstuff hunt.

Male avies always have a problem finding inexpensive hair, and I was very pleased to see that Jaryth’s Barber Shop has a very cool hair on the Menstuff hunt. It is the David Mesh Hair and comes with a hud which gives you a choice of five shades of brown. The sides of the head are cut very short and handled with a hairbase. The top is grown out longer and looks just spiky enough to give it a cool, rebellious look. Cool men’s hair is a tough find and this one is FREE so it’s definitely worth grabbing.

My tattoo is also from the Menstuff hunt. It is the bio mech tattoo from B*FLY Tattoos. It comes in normal and faded ink variations and also has an applier in the gift (if you happen to have a body from The Mesh Project). The design is reminiscent of the kind of artwork H.R. Giger became world renowned for: featuring patterns of what could be bone, muscle and tendons in a beautiful, surrealistic way. I love this style of art and this FREE tat definitely has found a home in my inventory.

The final item on this my first post covering the Menstuff hunt 2015 is the Moonwake necklace from Rebellion. This silver chain is very well detailed, giving it a highly realistic look. The design is definitely masculine, and would look especially great with a street thug kind of look. It is not free, but for only 1L, I absolutely recommend picking it up. Well, that’s it everyone, I am gonna settle in for a nice nap on the beach and dream about all the other items I will find on the Menstuff hunt this year. Until next time, see you on the grid! —–WHC Riler

One of the first places I ran to was the JZ For Men booth which is offering up three Mesh items for us, each one on sale for 10L. The JZ Classic T-Shirt – Dragon Eye in light gray and the JZ Classic T-Shirt – Mechanical in light blue are both very nice, well textured tees and included with them are materials enabled versions as well, a feature I found surprising for such a low price. The last item is a great pair of jeans, the JZ Loose Fit Jeans in basic blue and like the T-Shirts they come with a materials enabled version as well. So come on down and check out The Heat Wave Event, there are some great bargains here. —–WHC Riler

A Little Attitude From The For Him Hunt.

whc hunt 527 2
Happy Wednesday, everyone! I just got back from the For Him Hunt and I have some things to share with you. The hunt object in this case is a black wrench and each one costs 1L. This first item I found is this fantastic exercise outfit from Barefoot Apparel. It looks so great, I had to join a gym so I could show it off! Don’t get me wrong, I do exercise. Here at Fab Free, when Love and Pru take the others out to lunch, and I am here all alone, I put on my “Chair Dancing To The Oldies” DVD and get a fine workout. I don’t know if I am getting any thinner, but I am a much better lap dancer now for sure! (I hope we don’t have any security cameras here.) This For Him Hunt gift is called the Beach Runner Outfit and would look just as great on a morning run by the ocean as it does in the gym. The hoodie is Mesh, and the shorts and bathing suit (also included with the outfit) are on system layers in both wet and dry variations. Since the shorts are not Mesh they will fit under your Mesh hoodies and T-Shirts very nicely. Until now, I had yet to see a workout outfit on my avi that I thought looked “sexy”. I am truly impressed with this gift from Barefoot Apparel.

whc hunt 527 1
Also on the For Him Hunt is the Enoch Shirt in Royale from Vengeful Threads. It has a great, laid back Goth feel, and looks dead sexy on us guys. What I like most about it is the simple, masculine shape of the shirt (no lace, ruffles or excessive folds). With the crosses on the texture beckoning the eye, simplicity in shape was a great decision which results in a garment that I believe is special. I didn’t have to look too far to find really great items to accompany it either. I am also wearing the Gothic Link Bracelet and the Gothic Silver Skull Rings from Exquisite Jewelry. Together for only 1L on the For Him Hunt, they comprise a great gift, especially if you enjoy a gothic style. You can’t tell in my pic, but the Silver Skull Rings look like they could deal some very heavy damage in a fight. I certainly wouldn’t want to be hit with them. These black jeans are part of the Urban Conrad outfit from Pekas. They come with a sweater as well (not pictured) and are another good prize from this hunt. The Conrad Jeans are Mesh and are provided in four sizes, they were just perfect to round out that gothic look I was looking for.

Time is running short tonight, but before I leave you I have to mention the For Him Hunt prize from Felon: the Addiction Long-sleeve T-Shirt. It is a graphic T-Shirt with classic motorcycle/tough guy styling. Worn and old looking, if you look closely it says “Live fast, die last.” You gotta love clothing with attitude, and if anything, that’s what this week’s bargains from the For Him Hunt are all about. Whether it’s the biker attitude, or the gothic attitude, or even the sexy gym rat attitude, this hunt brought the attitude right to us, and did so for very little money. Have fun, and give hunting a try if you haven’t already, it can be highly rewarding. Til next time, see you on the grid! —–WHC Riler
