Menstuff Ahoy!

whc LKD pirate 1 a

whc LKD pirate1 b

Ahoy Matees! ARGGH…cough, cough, cough. Okay, That’s about the extent of my pirate role-play. It’s the “Argghs” that kill me. It’s hard to sound sexy when you start coughing and flailing your arms wildly in international amateur sign language for “I am ok, don’t call an ambulance”. That can kind of take the sexy out of things.

Luckily, the clothes can bring the sexy back and that’s what I like most about the outfit I’m wearing from Lo Kajirus Designs. The “Like A Pirate Mesh Slave Outfit” Menstuff Hunt gift comes role-play ready for daring adventurers, club hoppers and cabin boys across the grid. It is a highly unique outfit and consists of Mesh pantaloons, jewelry, Mesh eye-patches, a collar (both scripted and non-scripted) and a colorful belt sash. The pantaloons come in five sizes for a good fit, and the accessories are fun and quite attractive. Overall, the quality of the outfit is impressive and for only 1L, it’s a bargain. It doesn’t matter if your pirate vessel is a schooner or a shopping cart, it’s the clothes that make the man O’war! Aye, prepare to be boarded!

Seven Deadly s{K}ins is offering the Menstuff Hunt Bowie Skin in both taupe and walnut tones with and without hairbases as their free hunt prize. Heavily freckled and with super realistic facial hair, they are considerably handsome skins. I was quite impressed with the quality as well as the fact that 7DS also includes appliers if you are lucky enough to have slink hands and feet. The Bowie skin is definitely an excellent pick up for those of us looking for an quality skin upgrade for free!

whc piratecart FE Style 2_001

As I sailed through the calm seas of the Menstuff Hunt, I encountered this wonderful Jacket and Shirt Combo from FE Style. The Wekleh Jacket w/T-Shirt is a one piece mesh evocative of maritime clothes in an entirely different way. The simple, understated styling gives a classic masculine look for any male avi. Offered in four sizes, one of which is Fitmesh, a fine fit without any fuss will be easy to accomplish. Perfect for the dock or the deck, this 1L hunt prize is certainly a first-class item to grab.

The Menstuff Hunt is a 1L hunt but only 31 stores elected to charge for their gifts. The hunt object you are looking for is a blue T-Shirt and can be small, so follow any hints that have been posted on the Menstuff Hunt page. You will not find a better run Men’s hunt on Second Life. So ends this chapter in my Menstuff voyage for now, take care everyone and a quick reminder that Valentine’s Day approaches. Enjoy SL and I will see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Boots and Feathers

Boots and Feathers 1

I’ll admit… a good pair of boots gets me going. And a good pair of FREE boots is even better! So when I found out that Belle Epoque was starting out their new main-store location with a gift of FREE boots (in three colors – brown, black, and grey)… I was in! The style is spot on for a country or boho look and they don’t require any special feet! Woo hoo! You’ll need to join the group to grab the gift, but that is FREE too! As a quick note, the boots are mesh and like many mesh items don’t resize. So depending upon your avatar’s shape and/or size, you may have to adjust your sliders to fit the boots.

——————————————-
ADDED NOTE: We first saw this fabulous pair of boots shown off by Juli HERE in our Shoe Day Showcase! I derped and missed it! Be sure to check out her post for some other amazing shoe deals you’ll want to get in on!
——————————————-

I decided to go “Boho” with the boots and popped onto the marketplace, where I found this oldie but goodie dress for 1L. This Boho Culture Preview Dress is from 2013 and though it has a tiny bit of logo print at the bottom left of the dress… the print blends in so nicely (as you can see in the picture above) that it’s hardly noticeable. The dress is wonderful and definitely worth 1L! I’d have paid far more!

Boots and Feathers 2

I wanted to give you a close up of my boots (see the picture above). But it also gave me a chance to show off my rope and feathers accessory that I found! And I think the head piece and necklace — a mere 10L on the marketplace to get you both pieces — are a perfect complement to this look! This Head and Necklace Ropes by Sweet Lies comes in both scripted or unscripted (for resize purposes) and is perfectly textured. I LOVE the feathers! Well worth 10L and then some!

Be Incredible

Work Hard Do Good

Hello Fab Free! I’ve had a busy few days but I’m back and I’m excited to share some great group gifts I stumbled across today. I love it when you can pick up gifts at events, and Cosmopolitan Sales Room always has gifts each round. This round, the gifts were just my taste which doesn’t always happen! In addition to the gifts at Cosmo Sales Room, Entice has recently put out a new group gift and as always it’s beautiful.

This pretty inspirational wall art from Ama is one of the group gifts at Cosmo Sales Room. I love decorating in Second Life, especially when I can pick up well-made beautiful pieces like this one for FREE. The canvas reads “Work Hard, Do Good, Be Incredible” which is sweet and direct, which makes me like it even more. I’ll be leaving this one up at my house for sure. Everyone can benefit from a little inspiration, I know I can!

Also at Cosmo Sales Room as a FREE group gift is this fun quirky necklace from Tantalum. The Ouija board necklace comes in both a female and a male version and can be re-sized by clicking the necklace. Once again, this gift is exactly my taste, a little playful and maybe a little sinister. If you like it too, better hurry, there are just a few days left of this round of Cosmo Sales Room. To get these gifts simply join the FREE Cosmopolitan Sales Room group and click the gift vendors while wearing your tag.

Finally, this saucy low-cut dress is the current group gift at Entice. I like that this dress is simple yet elegant in style, and could be easily dressed up or down, and I think it would even look cute with leggings or pants. Also this FREE group gift comes with a texture change hud. I really like this “Love” pattern, with Valentines Day just around the corner Love is certainly the theme of the moment. I included a copy of the vendor photo for this great dress from Entice below so you can see the additional textures included. To get this dress join the FREE Entice group and pay the vendor 1 linden while wearing your tag. You will then be instantly repaid the 1 linden.

Grumbly Mondays

Hello FabFree Folks!

Grumbly Monday

I hope your Monday is full of good things today.  If you’re in need of a break from your Monday… I suggest Grumble.  No, don’t grumble about Monday… go to Grumble and play the Grumble Lucky Number 16 Hunt.  There are sixteen female gifts scattered over the SIM for Hunters all for 1L each. I found this elegant Winter Knit dress and couldn’t resist it. The dress comes in standard Mesh sizes XS-L and has a good alpha layer.  This ‘sweet sixteen’ Hunt runs until January 31st so don’t delay.

Grumbly Monday

While I was on the Hunt I found this great snowflake necklace at Glint. The “Falling Snowflakes Necklace” was actually the prize for the Gingerbread Hunt now ended. However, as of this posting,  the prize is still out at Glint.  Be aware, this Hunt is over and Glint can remove the prize at any time. So if you missed it and want it… hurry over now!

Time To Accessorize

Accessorize

I am so glad it’s Friday, Fab Free! It’s been a long week and I’m thankful the weekend is finally here. I’m ready to have some down time and maybe go out with some friends. After all, that’s what Friday nights are for, right?! Not to mention it gives me an excuse to dress up a little. Pretty accessories are one of my favorite ways to dress up an otherwise casual outfit. Which really means I get to wear my  tank top and jeans to girl’s night and still look super cute!

For a limited time these layered beads are on sale at Indulge Temptation. You can pick up a set for just 60 lindens that has a color change hud with 8 color options per set. There are 6 color sets to choose from. Pretty beads are so versatile. You can wear them with your evening wear or dress up your day wear with them. Not to mention with all the color options available you can find a set to match anything. Don’t miss out on this limited time offer at Indulge Temptation!

In a perfect world I would have a purse or clutch of some kind to go with every outfit I owned, and they would of course magically transfer all my stuff from one bag to the next! I think this clutch from Glow Designs is too cute. The clutch is their contribution to the Cupcakes Anonymous Hunt going on through January 31st. The prize also includes a gold version if silver is not what you want. Just head over to Glow Designs and hunt down the 10 linden cupcake.

In addition to cute accessories, the right hairstyle is essential if you want to dress up an otherwise casual look. This hairstyle from Little Bones is really beautiful. The best part? It’s the newest group gift from Little Bones, so it won’t cost you a fortune. The gift includes a dipped color change hud with several color options with black ends. Right now you can join the Little Bones group for just 100 lindens. There are several previous gifts still available as well, just wear your group tag to claim them.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Black_or_White_Hunt_2_-_POSTER_IMAGEIt’s Friday, and that means we have another fun weekend of hunting ahead of us. There are some very nice hunts going on right now. Just check the list (below) and see for  yourself.

In case you haven’t heard, hunting is a fun and rewarding “sport.” Merchants hide gifts in their stores just because they want you to visit. All you have to do is follow hints to find them. You’ll come away with all kinds of free stuff (or nearly free… some hunts charge a L$ or two for each hunt item). Your inventory will soon be stuffed full of clothing, shoes, accessories, furniture, etc.

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 what are you waiting for? Let’s go  hunting!

Post-Apocalyptic Swank

Hey FabFree-ers!

Post-Apocalyptic Swank

So…. I’m an all around geek. And I’ve been playing a ton of Fallout 4 lately so when I saw the Fresh Start Hunt prize from Dafnis Clothes my first thought was of the Commonwealth! (the post-apocalyptic area where the game takes place) This is the ‘Jasmine Shirt and Shorts’ and it’s the 1L prize for the Fresh Start Hunt.  The shirt and shorts are a set but they can be worn separately. They both come with their own alpha layers and a third alpha for the complete set. Both pieces come in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L, plus a Fitmesh version.

While I was on the Fresh Start Hunt, I also picked up this super cute necklace. This is the ‘Dream’ necklace from Glint. The details are really really well done. I love the classy but casual look. Well worth the hunting.

The Fresh Start Hunt runs until February 10th so you’ve got plenty of time to hunt down all the great prizes!

A Consensual Selfie

A Consensual Selfie

It’s been a while since I’ve been fishing, but the latest outfit at Sn@tch convinced me it was time to GO FISH! It has so many fabulous color options and ooooo la la the appliers!

This Consensual Behavior outfit by Sn@tch has 20 pieces you’ll want to fish for and includes 5 mesh skirt color options (I’m wearing the red — the pink, black, and teal are shown in the advertisement below, and there is also a purple that is not shown), and an applier top with sculpty sleeves. You’ll also get all the fixings with a gorgeous choker, snazzy boots, snappy earrings, and two make up options too!

This great outfit is yours FREE with a little time and patience and your fishing pole. If you already have one, you won’t have to spend a dime. If you don’t, you’ll only need to buy the 7-seas casual fishing rod for 100L one time… and then you can then fish for outfits each time new ones are released. A deal!

After I was done fishing and playing dress up, I decided it was time for a selfie. Just say, CHEESE!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Hunt For Your Inner Slut 13Good morning fabulous friends! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, January 19.

The top hunt today is the thirteenth edition of Hunt for Your Inner Slut and this time around it has a Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy theme. I’m not sure what that means in terms of sluts but I’m interested to find out!

The Black or White Hunt is back again in the number two spot and the Menstuff Hunt is at number three. Both of these are great hunts. There are plenty of other hunts to check out too. So let’s all go hunting!

Just a reminder, that these are the 10 most popular viewed hunts over the past 48 hours or so. We don’t know how many people actually start (or finish) any given hunt and this ranking can (and probably will) change in a few hours.

See you out on the hunt!
