Back In Black!

82615 post

Here I am again, fresh from a one-week vacation. I am sporting the official color of men’s clothing on Second Life, so you know I am bringing my “A” game. “Blog or die!” that’s my motto. I would have it tattooed on my arm, but if I did, somewhere out there is a person with a name like Alfred J. Blog who would do something publicly embarrassing. Then I would have to pay again to get the tat removed. I blog hard, but I am also very practical. Oh, and cheap, too.

First up on my list of fantastic finds is this jacket from REDPANDA. The Leather Jacket With Shirt is currently offered as a very generous FREE group gift. It is a one piece mesh combo of the jacket and the simple T-shirt, a classic look for a male avy if there ever was one. My favorite color to wear it in is black, of course. However, REDPANDA includes a hud that gives you five additional color choices, along with an additional eight colors for the T-shirt. You can also forgo the Tee entirely by choosing “No Shirt” on the hud. Four sizes and a clearly-grained leather texture with excellent details, such as visible stitching and metallic zipper teeth, make this a FREE group gift worth picking up!

So, newly back from the glorious sunshine, I figured it was time for me to go wild, and what better item to go wild in than these pants from Deadly Mouse? Their 1L Fashion Play Hunt For Him gift is a great outfit called Over Limit. It includes these crazy pants, subdued in color while the pattern is bursting with energy and life! They come in five sizes. Plus, this hunt gift also includes a great mesh hoodie in slate blue with excellent folds making it look very soft. Honestly if you like realistic looking clothes, and you want a solid blue hoodie, you are going to love the one that is in this box! I am going to give you a hint to help you find the hunt prize, which I rarely do, because I really want as many of you as possible to find this: “This hunt object is so small, it might drive you INSANE!” The hunt object is a small blue and black rectangle, and it’s easy. I promise.

I don’t wear jewelry often, so when I find something I have to like it immensely in order to consider posting it. Such is the case for the necklace I am wearing today. The Trophy Necklace from IT! (Indulge Temptation!) definitely fulfills that criterion and more. The Trophy Necklace comes with a hud giving you seven choices for the colors of the beads and it is materials enabled. This 1L Fashion Play Hunt For Him gift is the perfect accessory for the “Wild thing” mood I am in today! Pick this up to go with some casual and beachwear outfits. It’s a great find.

I am wearing another fantastic FREE skin gift from the Midnight Mania Board at Tellaq. I have mentioned them before since they are one of the best sources for men’s skins on the grid (also one of the most generous). Join the FREE group at the front of the main store and run to the back of the store to tap that MM board. Where else can you get a skin this good, and in sixteen facial hair variations with bonus goodies thrown in FOR FREE? Seriously, if you are a guy on SL, make this a regular stop, and ladies, please give it a tap now and then to help us guys out. The target is high, usually requiring 500 slaps, but the board does close regularly and the gifts are outstanding.

While you are checking out that close up of the devilishly handsome guy in the picture above, take a good look at his eyes. These are the current FREE Group Gift eyes from IKON, one of my favorite eye merchants on the grid. Just yesterday Love posted them here, but they look just as great on male avies too. These IKON Unisex Triumph Eyes in Armor have a combination of brown and tan tones in them and if you click my pic twice, you should be able to zoom in to see them in spectacular detail. The IKON group is FREE to join and I heartily encourage you to do so.

Lastly, for what seems to be a week jam-packed with great gifts and prizes to grab, Alli&Ali Designs are participating in the Fashion Play For Him Hunt as well. Their FREE gift is the stylish Roman Hair that I am wearing. It is offered in eleven colors and has an option for streaks in the hair to make it more versatile. Depending on your skin, you might want to find a hairbase from your inventory to wear with it to give it a more finished look like I did. The box does not include one, and it is not required as it looks great without one.

That’s it for this marathon post! You can tell I missed all of you since I had this many items saved up to share. We are nearing the end of the month, so if you see something you might want, go get it as soon as possible. The Fashion Play For Men Hunt ends August 31st. Until next time everyone, take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Soccer Mom

Coming soon to FabFree!

When I stumbled across this cute group gift at Ruca Tease, I knew I had to have it.  Why?  This is totally something I would wear in real life!  The over-sized sweater comes in 5 sizes, and the package includes matching earrings, boots, and system layer jeans.  A great leather shoulder bag is also available as a gift.  Not only is it gorgeous, your friends can sneak treats from your bag just by clicking on it.  It is my new favorite toy! The group is only $20 L to join, and is more than worth it, with multiple group gits for men and women.

 

Coming soon to FabFree!

My new cupcakey outfit was the perfect thing to run errands.  My first stop had to be The Grocery Store and Market.  This may be one of the funniest stores I have been in!  Grab your free cart and wear it, then cruise the aisles for all sorts of fun and free food to fill it up.  Among the freebies are some really great and fun food and celebration sets, so this store is really worth a stop.

Why do the weekends go so fast? Wasn’t it just Friday?  Oh well….

August heat

At least we still have a few… well…. two more weeks of August left. hat means you still have some time to run over and pick up this nice casual jeans and top from Prism. This is the Naquita by Journey and it’s the group gift for August. You get both the jeans and the top for the gift. I love the little leaf details on the jeans and the top’s asymmetrical look.

Prism is a FREE group to join and there’s always a ton of Hunt going on and past group gifts up for grabs. Plus, there’s a nice men’s clothing section for all you guy – types!

Envy Me…

She’s classic, elegant… and the life of the party. The gentlemen all want to dance with her… and the ladies all envy her…

Envy Me [1]

And if you stop by Junbug‘s quick as can be, you can pick up the Lady Crawley gown in Envy, and be envied too, because Junbug is celebrating 10,000 Facebook likes and 4,500 Group Members with this lovely formal mesh gown as their in-store gift!

Envy Me [2]

… and she has that certain touch of je ne sais quoi that makes those in the room pause… perhaps stare…

Or maybe it’s the breathtaking jewelry that bedecks her slender neck and wrists… which can be yours as well if you drop by Chop Zuey and pick up their newest Group Gift! This To The Daisy Grey Set (which includes a stunning necklace, ring, bracelets, and earrings) is breathtakingly detailed and perfect for any formal occasion!

Sassy and Brassy!

It’s almost Friiiday! It’s almost Friiiiidaaaay! *does happy little dance*  Ahemm… yes, okay… must be professional…  Hello again FabFree Folks, it’s almost Friday and that has left me feelin’ pretty sassy. And wouldn’t you know it, Mrs. B’s Designs is here to offer up the perfect top for feelin’ sassy.

allure_004

This is the “Have a Wicked Day” crop top from Mrs. B’s. Pink and sweet and just a little cheeky. The top comes in a blue guy’s version for our brazen boys too.  At just 5L on special sale, it’s an easy add to the wardrobe.

So, I have the top I need some cute shorts to go with it. Allure is just the place to go to solve this dilemma. These are the “Daisy Denims” shorts and they are just one of the many many group gifts all around the store. The Allure VIP Group is FREE to join and wow… there are so many gifts I couldn’t believe it!  Then to add to everything, the quality of the mesh is just wonderful!

AND I get new hair?! Best almost Friday ever! The “No Night” was seen here first.  No Night comes with a HUD with five ‘group exclusive’ colors.

As y’all know by now, special sales and group gifts can come and go like the wind. So if you like the look then hurry hurry, my sassy dears!

Wind Swept

Hello and happy Wednesday, FabFree Folks!

Wind Swept

Every now and then, a designer puts together an outfit that evokes a mood in me the minute I see it. This is the August group gift from AnaMarkova and I knew it needed a wind swept beach to show it off properly. This outfit comes with the skirt, the belt, the top and the loose sweater… all as one piece in the five standard sizes. So you save an alpha slot or two. I topped it off with the Winteria necklace from Pure Poison. You might recognize the necklace as a past group gift. We saw it waaaaay back here in Love’s post.  But it is still available along with a bunch of other gifts.  A little something old and something new….  all adds up to something wonderful.

SL Weddings – A Sure Sign That You Ignore Your Friends’ Advice!

tiftux2_001

Weddings…on Second Life you only get married six or seven times a year. If that were the case in real life, no one would rent tuxes. They would be part of our regular wardrobe. I know, sometimes SL marriages do work, occasionally in spectacular fashion. It’s that hope that keeps a lot of us going, and going, and going- (much to the dismay of our friends). My point is: the longer you are here on Second Life, the more impossible it is not to become partnered in some way to someone you care about. When that happens, you must have something fantastic to wear.

Tiffany’s Designs have recently changed their monthly group gift. Previously, it was a beautiful white suit that I wear often when I wander around the grid. This time, they have outdone even that gorgeous garment! The Mae Men’s Wedding Suit *Paris consists of two pieces meant to be worn together, so it is simple to wear. Each part is offered in five Mesh sizes to help make the fit just plain easy. The first piece is the jacket, which is black and nicely textured, complete with long tails. The remaining piece is the rest of the tux including the shirt, tie, pants and waistcoat in one combined garment. When worn, it is an elegant tux that will turn heads, whether you are standing at the altar or slow dancing with someone you adore. The Tiffany’s Designs group is not free (it will set you back 50L), but the quality of the gifts make it well worth it!

tiftux3_001

This August is another great month to be a guy on Second Life. Currently, running is the fourteen store Fashion Play For Men Hunt. The eyes I choose to wear with this tux are Fashion Eyes – Charm, the Fashion Play For Men Hunt prize from Inkheart . They are light gray with a slight greenish tint. They look pretty realistic and I am very pleased with them. One nice thing about Inkheart . is they participate in a lot of hunts and are quite generous with their gifts. The Fashion Play For Men Hunt prizes cost 1L each and are expected to be out all month. As if that’s not enough, starting August 29th is the Men’s Only Hunt 6 which should have over sixty participating merchants. I can hardly wait!

Second Life, where romance blooms all year around! (Amazing how fertile the soil is when so much fertilizer is laid down first.) Seriously, part of SL is the romance and mystery of blossoming relationships, and if you choose not to take the time for a romantic dance every so often, you are missing out on a great deal of fun. Go pick up some seriously dashing clothes and give it a shot. Your Second Life just might become even more amazing. That’s it for now, my friends. See you on the grid.—–WHC Riler
