I, I Will Be King

whc brocade tiger jeans 2_001

I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing, will drive them away
We can beat them, just for one day
We can be heroes, just for one day
– David Bowie

Hello everyone and welcome to my extended Menstuff Hunt coverage! Menstuff is a lL hunt, but many of the stores on it have waived the fee, so it is an especially economical hunt to do. The object to look for is shaped like a blue T-Shirt. Today we will look at a few items from the hunt, and then I want to share something that is very special to me personally.

I love Brocade Tiger! They make clothes that are always unique and eye-catching. In other words, they are perfect for people like me who crave a little attention now and then. For the Menstuff Hunt, Brocade Tiger is offering the Tiger Blue Jeans w/Open Belt for free. Dark blue, they are emblazoned with a tiger theme executed to blend in rather than roar out its presence. The effect is a wonderfully subtle yet very artistic pair of jeans. They come in five sizes for a good fit and are available free for all you hot predators out there.

My hair in the above picture is a fantastic Menstuff Hunt prize from Damselfly. The Hitch Non-Rigged Mesh Hair comes with an easy to use hud to select among twenty different color variations. For only 1L, such a stylish hair with a color change hud included is definitely a bargain. Included in the box is a hairbase in ten colors and a TMP applier. That makes this Damselfly Menstuff prize an extremely good pick-up, an attractive and versatile hair that could easily become one of your favorites.

Native Urban offers this sharp looking pair of sunglasses for free on the Menstuff Hunt! I was tempted to save it for the upcoming free accessories day post, but I love the way they look in this picture. The Gold Aviator Glasses look highly realistic, and are handsome enough to be the “go to” sunglasses in your wardrobe. For Native Urban to offer them up as a free gift, is very generous indeed!

Finally, the Timeless Design‘s Celtic Necklace is a decidedly masculine necklace which can also be yours for free on the Menstuff Hunt. Consisting of a braided cord with four silver beads and a Celtic style silver cross, it is a ruggedly handsome item that will be a solid addition to your Second Life jewelry collection.

David Bowie passed away recently. Having witnessed Bowie evolve through the countless phases and reinventions of himself over the years, it was a little shocking that he actually appears to have been mortal. Then again, many of us have our doubts that he really was. Feeling the loss of him, though, was nothing for me compared to the loss my friend Effie felt at Bowie’s passing. She is a huge David Bowie fan and his death affected her deeply. Because of that, I became inspired by two items currently available at Brocade Tiger: the Flamingo Tux and the Goblin King Outfit in Blue.

Donning a light skin, I made an appropriate shape and went back to Brocade Tiger to see if that incredible Flamingo Tux might still be out from the Femboy Hunt. You might recall, I previously posted about it here. To my knowledge, David Bowie never actually wore anything like it but I can easily imagine him wearing something amazing like this in a video. I am happy to report this garment is still available at Brocade Tiger and only costs 2L! To finish the outfit, I chose Avanti‘s free promo Ziggy Face Tattoo which Pru previously showed off here. It works just as well for men, and for Bowie fans it is a must have item!

The Goblin King in Blue is inspired by Jareth, the Goblin King in the movie “Labyrinth” as played by David Bowie. Offered in dark blue by Brocade Tiger, this free costume totally unleashed my movie nerd side and let it go on a prowl spreading a little Goblin magic across the grid. For lovers of the 80’s, film enthusiasts and David Bowie fans it’s a great pick up!

In closing, Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and perhaps it isn’t in the cards to buy something for someone you care about. Money can be hard to come by for some of us. Maybe it is worth considering other options. From making a graphic in a paint program and uploading it into SL for 10L as a Valentine to giving your avy a look that makes them think of someone they admire, they will cherish your thoughtfulness. Of course, spending time with them can be the best gift of all. However you decide to mark the day, enjoy it! See you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Jedi Fabulous

Star Wars

I won’t lie, I’ve been seriously geeking out about the current round of The Fantasy Gacha Carnival. For me it doesn’t get any better than the nerdy goodness of a Game of Thrones versus Star Wars gacha festival. Yes, you read that right. Now as much as I love Game of Thrones, in my world, Star Wars ultimately wins me over. Maybe it’s because I have a lot of nostalgia attached to Star Wars. Either way, there are a lot of lovely things to be had on both sides.

Star Wars Close

It was tough to decide what to show first, so I took a step back from the Fantasy Gacha Carnival and let my hair decide. Little Bones has put out their first ever Midnight Mania Board. This pretty center part long hairstyle is the current MM board prize, and it includes an exclusive color hud with 8 “Natural” and 8 “Unnatural” hair colors. You’ll need to join the Little Bones group to participate in the Midnight Mania, which has a one time join fee of 100 lindens. The join fee is completely worth it, Little Bones is notorious for fairly frequent group gifts, and now the addition of their Midnight Mania. If you’ve held out on joining, now’s the time to get in and take advantage of this great group and awesome brand.

Now, back to the Star Wars inspired finds I gathered at The Fantasy Gacha Carnival, well most of them. First, this awesome All Terrain Recon Transport vehicle by Sushi. Yes, this cool wearable vehicle came from a gacha! I managed to score the BB8 version of this vehicle, which is one of the many commons available. To ride the vehicle you simply right click on it in your inventory and choose “add” to avoid detaching any attachments you may be wearing. You’ll then want to set your avatar to fly and you’ll see the ATRT’s legs start moving. I had to fly down a little to get back on the ground while still in fly mode. This too-cool gacha is just 75 lindens per play at The Fantasy Gacha Carnival.

Next the top and pants Pru is wearing are both from the Moon Elixir gacha. This gacha includes a full set of female “Scavenger” clothing in two variations, with several color options, as well as separate machines depending on what mesh body you do or do not wear. Clearly inspired by the uniquely Star Wars fashion universe, I was not at all disappointed in the fit or look of these items. I also think they are versatile enough to be worn outside the realm of fantasy role play. The Moon Elixir gacha is also 75 lindens per play at The Fantasy Gacha Carnival.

When traveling the Star Wars universe you might want to have a weapon handy. May’s Soul has a weapon gacha at The Fantasy Gacha Carnival that has everything from light sabers to guns. The weapons are highly detailed, wearable items. I picked up this bright green light saber from the May’s Soul gacha machine at just 50 lindens per play. The pose I used for the above photo holding the light saber is from another gacha at The Fantasy Gacha Carnival. The Poseidon booth at The Fantasy Gacha Carnival is stuffed full of static poses inspired by the weaponry of Star Wars. The poses do come with prop weapons as well, I just chose not to use them. You can get the Poseidon Poses for just 50 lindens per play as well.

Needless to say, I had a lot of fun putting this look together with all these great Fantasy Gacha Carnival finds! I hope you enjoy it too.

Here are the details!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL THE LOVING KIND MAIN POSTERValentine’s Day is just around the corner and you can certainly tell if you’ve been wandering around Second Life. Hearts, flowers, teddy bears… it seems like nearly every shop has them out on display.

You can certainly tell in the hunt world as well. There are lots of romantically themed (and a couple of anti-romance) hunts that you can have some fun with. Heck… drag your loved one along, but hopefully not kicking and screaming. He-he… you know how much macho guys love teddy bears.

If you’re new to hunting, both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.

So let’s do some hunting. Just poke the hunt names for the 411 on each one.

I can be Kawaii…I think.

Hello FabFreebers! While I’m not 100% sure I know enough about what the word Kawaii means (I do know it means cute in Japanese, but of course there’s more to it than that), I find myself feeling that way today with my outfit. Heck, I’m not even sure how to pronounce it. Is it pronounced Ka-Why, or Ka-Whyee, like Hawaii? I do know that any time I hear the word, I see fun fashions, with pretty colours and there is usually a bow and or hearts involved somewhere. I think I have it nailed today!

kawaii1

It all started with my dress actually. I was checking out Sugar Button Boutique the other night, and while looking at their free group gifts to make sure I haven’t missed out on anything, I noticed that I had not picked up this cute Baby Doll Bow dress that was a special group gift edition. It is mesh, in all the standard sizes, and I just adore the big pink bow at the waist. It is so pretty and feminine. All you need to do to get this baby, is join the Sugar Button Boutique group, for free, and toss on the tag.

kawaii3

Naturally, I needed shoes. I know, I know, I always need shoes. LOL. I actually heard about this sweet iridescent gold pair from Alaskametro on their Facebook feed. There is a new Marketplace hunt going on, the Sofa Surfer’s hunt, until Feb 29th, and the Brilla heels are Alaskametro’s contribution. All you have to do, is go to their Marketplace store, HERE, and then start searching for the item ad that has the orange ‘buy now’ on it. While hunt prizes can be set at up to L$10, these classic pumps are L$0 for everyone. There are versions for SLink high, which I am wearing, TMP Ouch, Bellezza and Maitreya feet. While they are not hard to find, I won’t include the direct web page link…it is a hunt after all :P .

kawaii2

The last free addition to my Kawaii look, is the too-cute for words hair I have on. This fun, pig-tailed and long, Kizzy hair is the latest gift from Truth. If you are already in their subscribo, check your items folder, as you should already have it. If you are not subscribed, or maybe SL ate yours, no fear, just head on down to the Truth store, and you can buy the Kizzy hair for free. It is a full colour huds fatpack, and while you all know I usually go for the dark hair look, I could not resist going with pastels this time around. No matter your colour preference, you are covered.

So what do you think? With a few other cutesy additions to my outfit, do I have a Kawaii look happening? Should I have added anything else? You know, no matter what, I love it, and you really can’t beat the price for each item. So, until next time, TTFN *waves*

Workin’ 9 to 5

Hey There, FabFree-ers!

Workin' 9 to 5

The weekend is almost up and most of us will be heading back to work tomorrow but there just a minute to show off some great ‘career wear’ I found.

This is the ‘Megan’ dress from Legendaire and it’s free for everyone, no group needed. If that wasn’t generous enough, this gift comes with a six color HUD for a ton of options. The dress comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and appliers for SLink, Belleza and Maitreya.

My new shoes might be a little daring for the office but who doesn’t like a little daring no and then? These are the ‘Tied Up’ heels for SLink high feet. And they are you free gift for the ‘Hunt for your inner slut’ Hunt from Grumble.  If you like these shoes, you can also find a red pair in Grumble’s ‘Eat Me’ in store hunt for 1L.

Workin' 9 to 5

And I found a nifty ‘office-ready’ new hair style too! This is ‘Barbie’ from Tameless and it’s a mere 10L at the Truth or Dare Affair. Not only do you get the gorgeous red… you get the entire fat pack. So I know there’s a color in there you’ll love.

Sometimes gifts can come and go quickly, so if you want the Megan dress please hurry over. The Hunt for your Inner Slut Hunt runs until February 15 and the Truth or Dare Affair is open until February 29.

Feeling a little monochromatic.

Hello again everybody. Hope you are all having a fabulous weekend, I know I am! To make this weekend even better, I’ve got a few Marketplace finds for you, 2 great group gifts, and a lovely, wearable demo. Wow, I better get started!

Feeling a little monochromatic.

Let’s start with the Marketplace. My sexy dress is called Lanelle, and it is a dollarbie from Tee*fy. It is mesh, and comes in the standard sizes, as well as a fitted mesh version for the Maitreya Lara body. My other Marketplace find are my sweet heels. The Nix High Heels also only L$1, were put out as a special for Halloween, from Vowtte, and are still available. They are meant for SLink and Bellezza high feet, and you actually get 2 pairs, the black ones that I am showing off, and a purple pair as well. The texturing on them is amazing, and they are well worth that L$1! (Thanks for the tip on these amazing shoes Glimmer :) )

Feeling a little monochromatic

OK, on to the group gifts. Have you been admiring my beautiful skin? Well, lucky for all of you, it is the most recent Toxxic Design Studio’s group gift from AlterEgo. The lovely Adriana in the rose skin tone, is free for group members, and even better, the group is free to join! You get 2 skins, one with red eyebrows, and the one I am wearing, a browless version. There is also a loudmouth applier, a shape, an eyelash remover, as well as a few brow shapes. Any other appliers you need, have been placed right in front of the sign for your convenience (I hate having to go exploring to find corresponding appliers!), they will need to be purchased for a small fee. The other group gift I am wearing, my pearl jewelry set, comes from Chop Zuey, and is a free gift for members of the Womenstuff group, available in the ‘stuff Lounge. If the To The Daisy set looks a little familiar, you may recall that Astrid had previously shown it to all of you HERE, when Chop Zuey had it out as one of their own group gifts. So if you missed grabbing it then, now’s your chance! You get right and left bracelets, earrings, a ring, and 3 different necklaces that you can wear individually, or stack them all together like I have done. The Womenstuff group has a small join fee of L$50, but as you should already know (from the numerous posts showing off gifts from this group) it is well worth it!

Feeling a little monochromatic

The last piece I want to tell you about, my hair,  may also seem a bit familiar, as Love first modeled it for you HERE as a free group gift.  However, the Sheena hair from LeLutka is now available, free for everyone, as a free wearable colour demo! This rigged mesh style, is a full colour hud pack to allow you to see all the different colours available for LeLutka hair. I really do love wearable demos, it’s a great excuse to put out a freebie, even better when it’s as pretty as this hair is.

I have to say, I am really loving this monochromatic look I’ve put together with all these great finds. Would you believe, other than the choice in hair colour, though even my normal black would have worked, I did not plan it like this at all. Sometimes it just works out perfectly this way :) . Alright lovelies, that is all I have for now, but don’t worry, I’ll be back. Until then, TTFN!!

A Cascade of Magic

Sometimes a little fantasy pick-me-up is just the thing to make your day… and today I felt like making a little magic! I picked up a few things around the grid sure to make any role player’s day a bit more magical, and I’m here to let you in on the magician’s secrets!

Right now if you stop by [EvelineInTheBox], the creator’s February gift is out. It is this lovely Thyri Cascade dress in mesh (all the standard sizes) that is really just fantastic. I love the way the dress curves around my avatar’s body! It is FREE to group member and the group is FREE to join, making this lovely gift a sweet deal!

A Cascade of Magic

Remember that Alice Project is still hosting their Winter Project! Today I stopped by to pick up this hair called Amy in the Winter Shimmer version… which is the VIP members’ gift. This is FREE to VIPs. The group is 750L to join but there are always TONS of amazing offers. There is also a FREE pack out for nonmembers, so it’s still very worth your time to stop by and pick up the giftie even if you are not a VIP member.

My roleplay character Astrid is a fey who does light and magic using staffs… so when I saw this crystal staff at A.D.D.Andel! I fell in love! It is only 50L per spin at the in-store gacha and there are lots of beautiful staffs in the machine. These are even modifiable, so I was able to make mine have a bit of a glow to better fit how I envisioned my character. Love, love, love this!
