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

Bubbly heart

Bubbly heart

Feeling young at heart and poppin my gum. My gum is something I found FREE from Muschi on Marketplace.

Maybe it was the PurpleMoon Cherry Drink hunt that put me in my mood. Its an open to everyone hunt and the prizes are all FREE. 10 cherries have been hidden at the PurpleMoon Gardens (not the shop itself), find them and taste the sweetness of their fabulous treasures!

There are no hints given. They are in plain sight. Easy to find and this is more for the fun of it than anything else.

I wandered around and snapped up some drinks. My outfit is made up of #1 love top & #3 jess skirt. Both mesh items. Several of the items are mix and match types so have fun and put them together however your heart likes.

The PurpleMoon Cherry Drink hunt runs til the 28th so that should give you plenty of time to run over and have some drinks!

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*

Love Prismatically

Love Prism 1

I’m hot on the trail of hunt deals, and I broke into some prismatically detailed outfits at Prism Designs! Prism Designs is participating in two great hunts with two amazing gifts, and you will want to nab them both up!

For just 1L you can love this Love Hunt gift outfit called Chenae Leather Jacket and Dress. The dress and jacket are two different pieces and can be worn separately or together for a stunning and unique look either way! Each piece comes in all the standard mesh sizes and the dress has a great plunging cut out back with a fabulous geometric print that really catches the eye.

Love Prism

I wasn’t done hunting down the goods though, and picked up this great outfit called Odelia while still at Prism for FREE. It is part of the Loving Kind Hunt and includes both the mesh pants and the mesh sweater, again in all the standard mesh sizes with great geometric prints to really set them apart from your standard fare. Well worth hunting down the little red heart and popping it into your wardrobe!

Make Some Waves

Make Some Waves

The sun, and the warm weather it brings, they are on the way. I can feel it in the air. This gorgeous sparkly top and skirt combination reminds me of something I’d want to wear on vacation some place warm and fun. The outfit is part of the Jack or Jill Hunt prize from BYRNE. The gift includes a pink version as well as this teal version. The fully mesh skirt and top can be worn together as shown or separately. As with all JOJH prizes, this one is FREE, you just have to stop by the BYRNE main location and find it!

Make Some Waves Close

Feelin’ fine in my shimmery new outfit, I had to have just the right makeup to match. Stix has this equally pretty eye-shadow gift out at the current round of The Makeover Room. The shadow comes in 3 pretty pastel shades,  a bluish shade (shown), a greenish shade, and a bronze shade. This FREE gift includes appliers in all 3 colors for Catwa, Genesis, Lelutka, and TMP heads, as well as an Omega applier, and system layers. This gift is more than worth a trip to The Makeover Room, and a good reason to go shopping while you’re there!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hearts and Heels

Hello again Fab Free Folks!

Hearts and Heels

Have you seen all the Valentine’s Day Hunts going on? I hardly know where to start with all the hearts. And cupids and roses and candy….  But I love, no pun intended, this time of year. After yesterday’s career look, I decided I needed something sleek and elegant but a little sexy. Get Frocked had just the thing. This is the ‘Add some red dress’ for the “Add Some Red” hunt. I was just taken by the low cut back and the little bow. Sophisticated but sexy, just the thing! The dress comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and has it’s own alpha layer.

Remember yesterday when I showed y’all the black ‘Tied Up’ heels from Grumble? Well, I couldn’t resist, I had to go pick up the red pair too! Grumble has twenty little boxes of candy scattered around the store for their “Eat Me” hunt and each one is just 1L.  Including these gorgeous sky high heels for SLink high feet.

Hearts and Heels

Last but not least, Livia has supplied my nails this evening for just 1L as part of the “Stupid Cupid” hunt. ‘In Love’ comes with seven colors/patterns on two HUDs. One for Omega and SLink and one for Maitreya. So they’ve got you pretty much covered!

Both ‘Stupid Cupid’ and the “Add Some Red”  hunts  AND the ‘Eat Me’ in-store hunt run until February 29!

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.

Every little heart beat

Hello FabFree-ers! I’m back after a week of RL wrangling. It’s been pretty crazy here so thank goodness for some downtime in SL… doing my favorite thing – Hunting!

Every little heart beat

This cute little number is the ‘Heatbeats’ bubble dress from Broken Glass Boutique and it’s the 1L prize for the Love Hunt. The dress comes in Mesh sizes XS-L with the alpha layers. You also get the micro bead red and white necklace in the prize, Plus… a pair of fire engine red panties.

Every little heart beat

My shoes are from Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes and they are the free prize for the Add Some Red Hunt.  The are for the system feet so no need for mesh. The prize also comes with a super cute pair of red boots as well!  Now, There is some snafu over at Fi’s hunts web page and the stores, hunt pics and SLurls are not loaded. However, I stumbled over the Hunt prize while I was hunting in LM&RS for something else. I hope Fi’s Hunts gets back up and running soon. I don’t know if the hunt was canceled or on hold.  But, as of this posting, the Add Some Red prize is out and available at Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes. Please check back for any updates.

The Love Hunt ends on February 29 and the Add Some red hunt is scheduled to end on February 29 as well. Don’t delay!
