Splashback

Splashback

The For Him Hunt 2 ends July 31st, but there is still time for us men to fill out our inventories with things like this excellent shirt from Trashed. I picked this one up by finding the hunt icon in their main-store. This is a 1L hunt and the shirt was well worth 1L and much more.

This shirt comes in all the standard sizes as well as an additional fitmesh size in the box (much appreciated). I really liked that it wasn’t just your “plain black shirt” but that it had the “splashback” design on the shirt. A nice touch to a classic t-shirt design.

Fire and Ash

Hello again, Fabfree.

fire and ash

As I mentioned in my last post, I have been participating in several Hunts this week and I needed to stop in and show you this elegant vintage suit from Fire and Ash Design. This is ‘Mobster’ in black and red and it’s the 1L prize for the ‘For Him Hunt 2’  ‘Mobster’ comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL and is all one piece. The hat is a separate item and has a resize script to get the right fit. While the suit is called Mobster and it certainly does harken back to the 1930s, I feel it would make an excellent Steampunk look or really any vintage outfit.

The ‘For Him Hunt runs until July 31st so don’t delay.

I remain most sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture

Friday

Hello FabFree.

Friday

I hope this finds all of you enjoying your Friday and looking forward to the weekend. I have started my weekend off with some of the Hunts that are just kicking off. However what I’m showing you today actually isn’t from a Hunt. More of a haunt. Allow me to explain.  There are certain shops that I frequent even when they aren’t participating in Hunts or sales simply because I love their clothing. Cold Ash is one of my ‘haunts’. The clothes are extraordinarily well made and I eagerly look forward to their sales and Hunts and especially group gifts.  This is the ‘Logan Shirt’ in navy blue and it’s a free gift for everyone. The shirt includes the standard Mesh sizes S-L and three Fitmesh versions with one version being for The Mesh project bodies. I found it to be very true to size and an easy wear.

You’ll find this superb addition to your wardrobe on the ‘new releases’ board as you enter the shop. I can’t say how long it will be available so I advise haste.

I Remain Most Sincerely Yours,
Gabe's Signiture

Another Man’s Treasure

Another Man's Treasure

The popular For Him Hunt is making a round 2 and is already proving lucrative as a 1L hunt for guys. I made my first stop at Fe Style and picked up this zippered T-shirt called “Klett” for only 1L. It comes in two versions — one with a gold zipper and one with a silver zipper and you also get a color change hud that changes the color of the side slit insets with a total of 8 color choices, making it even more versatile.

This shirt is an excellent fit and comes in all the standard mesh sizes. If you’re still in a standard body, it also includes a good alpha layer, but does fit mesh bodies cleanly as well (I put it on my slink body and it was a great fit for it too).

I was then off to do a bit of sim exploring. If you’re looking for photogenic hot spots, I highly recommend “Junktown” just for looking around. As they say, one man’s junk… is another man’s treasure!

Strapped

Monday Greetings, FabFree,

Strapped

The look I’m showing you today is something different from my usual style. But Julianna is ‘encouraging’ me to branch out. (Read here : Twisting my arm) At any rate…  today I’m showing you the ‘Hector’ Strapped shirt from Sweet Intoxication. This unusual shirt is the 1L prize for the Light Up the Night Hunt. Hector comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-L and has a good alpha layer. If this shirt catches your fancy, it is available in several other colors at the regular price in the main store.

My trousers today are the premier of This is Wrong’s men’s group gifts. I always applaud designers and shops as they expand into men’s wear and this is a very nice addition to that group. The ‘Worker Pants’ come in Fitmesh sizes S-L. However I did discover I needed an alpha layer to get the perfect fit. But it was an easy fix with any one of several standard pants alpha layer from my inventory.  The color and details of the Worker Pants are spot on and I look forward to This is Wrong’s next men’s wear offering.

I remain most sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture

I have always found something magical in Second Life about dancing. And in real life, when I have gone to festivals, I have always been taken in by the beauty of different types of dancing. Veil dancers, especially, have taken my interest.

Right now, there are four gifts available for FREE at [House of Ruby] — two each for both men and women. They are beautiful, classy bodysuits that could be used for lingerie, or as depicted above, for something more exotic even.

If you join the [House of Ruby] group (it is a FREE join) you can get a matching men and women’s Ruby Leopard bodysuit or unitard for FREE. The women’s suit includes a small top for modesty. These suits do not include system layers, but you get Omega and Slink appliers for each.

If you hit the subscriber (again this is FREE), you’ll be gifted with the suit that you see Loki wearing, except that the difference is the color — it is the “Leopard” color instead. Just as the group gift includes both a male and female version, the subscriber includes both a male and female version as well.

Nerdy Girl in-world Closing Sale

Super Heroes

It’s hard to see much beloved stores close their doors in Second Life… and Nerdy Girl has announced that she will be moving the in-world store to the Marketplace to pursue new adventures after July 12th. In the meantime, as a bit of a farewell gift to all the loyal customers who love nerdology, the in-world store is having a last hoorah and closing sale before it moves to the marketplace… a bonus for all of us loyal shoppers:)

Nerdy Girl has put out all the old gifts for one thing, so if you are a group member, stop by and pick up any you missed (the join fee is only 25L if you are not already a member, and with all the goodies, it’s worth joining).

In addition, all store merchandise is priced at 25L or lower, excluding gachas. In salute to the Nerdy ways, Loki and I decided to go as Nerd Heroes. I am not convinced that he got it quite right, but then he thinks I didn’t do it right either… we agreed to disagree, since Rainbow Brite is my favorite, and he said Superman was super.

My rainbow bright costume includes the mesh skirt, applier top and leggings, and the bow (which comes in a left, center, or right fit). For 25L, it’s quite a deal!

Loki’s mesh hoodie in all the standard sizes is quite a find indeed, as there is a texture change hud included. The hud changes the t-shirt and hoodie separately, for lots of nerd fun… hero symbols on the shirt and hoodie all separate for whatever hero you want to be that day. For 25L, there’s a hero in every guy just waiting to come out!

Hiding Out

Good evening, FabulouslyFree Readers.

Hiding Out

I hope you have all enjoyed your weekend and are ready for a little extra holiday if you are celebrating the Fourth of July in the USA. Julianna is positively annoyingly ready for the holiday as it’s one of her “favs”. I had to take some refuge from the flags, bunting and sparklers so I dressed in all black today. This is the ‘Rock Button down shirt’ from Angel Deluxe and it’s the free group gift for the Teleporthub.Com group.  The trim button down comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL. I found the build to be very well made and fit properly in the smaller sizes as many men’s fashions sadly don’t. The shirt comes with two slightly different alpha layers to get a perfect look for your body type be it slimmer or not. Angel Deluxe also has a very nice sun dress for the ladies in the Teleporthub.Com Group Gift box.

I remain mostly sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture

Real Men Wear Pink

Real Men Wear Pink

I decided real men wear pink… or at least tie dye. Or Astrid told me so and I ended up in both somehow. Either way, this applier shirt which is pretty fabulous was FREE, courtesy of Corrupted Designs, and it won’t even cost you a group space. All you need to do is slap the Midnight Mania board. It locks down at only 25 slaps, so hurry if you want this shirt. The gift includes both slink and omega appliers (there are no system layers, sorry fellas), and as far as I can tell would work as a unisex top, but is really geared more toward the male audience.

Real Men Wear Pink 2

My bracelet is a FREE to all gift I picked up at Glint Jewelry. This one *is* unisex as there is both a male and female bracelet in the box. No group is needed, just buy the gift for 0L at the main-store. It is being given in remembrance of the victims and survivors at Orlando.

Dura- able.

Dura-ble

Call me blonde… platinum blonde…

But seriously — the ladies have all been showing you all these great SLB13 cake gifts and I didn’t want anyone to think that us menfolk had been left out! I stopped by The Men’s Department to discover that there were a plethora of cakes out for us menfolk at the event. I’m showing you a couple of the top quality FREE gifts (no group required) that you can pick up for wearing just with a click of your teleport button.

Yes I went platinum blonde for this post. It all began with this Dura hair gift at the event. It is the SLB13 gift out at the Men’s Department and is it yours FREE when you click the cake. It includes a hair base and is resize for easy fitting. I was really impressed with the hair quality and the fit and wanted to show it off.

The other FREE gift I picked up was this really terrific button down striped shirt by Gabriel. It comes in three mesh sizes… Slink, Standard, and TMP. You’re sure to find your perfect fit.

Be sure to pick these up soon, as this round of The Men’s Department event ends June 30th of this month.
