Bakaboo

Bakaboo is quickly becoming a favorite designer for me. Not only is the quality of the build stunning, the style is on point. I look forward to their gift each month because I know it will be something extraordinary and not another hoodie or ball cap. Don’t get me wrong, I like a good hoodie as much as the next guy but I like something different now and then. And Bakaboo is the go to for stylish you-don’t-see-this-everyday fashions.

November

November

November makes me feel.. quiet. Thoughtful. Maybe even a bit melancholy. Or maybe I need to listen to Juli and get back to work.  **Thinks about it for a minute**  Nah…

In the Army

I have no idea how long this great army shirt and undershirt will be available from Hoorenbeek. So if you want it go grab it soon. The ‘Army Shirt’ can be worn with and without the undershirt. It also comes with a HUD to change the color of the undershirt to one of twelve choices. The shirt combo is for Group Members only but the Group is FREE to join so don’t let that stop you.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Classic Sizes
  • Signature – Gianni and Geralt

Nevermore

Nevermore

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore—

The Raven

~ Edgar Allen Poe

Nothing like a Great Suit

It’s no question I love a good suit. In my opinion, it’s the ultimate attire of the true gentleman. And this suit? Perfection. This is “Whisper Lenore” from Sparrow By Design for the “Quoth the raven. Nevermore” Hunt. The fabric has almost a burn out velvet look that is amazing. I highly recommend taking the time to hunt down this suit. And Ladies, SBD has put out a lovely dark gown for you as well. Don’t miss it.

Size Included

Mesh sizes XS – XL

 

Cheers,
Gabriel St.James

Seasonal

Seasonal

So, Readers,  I didn’t make it back to the beach. But I did find a more ‘seasonal’ place to hang out for a bit. Nothing like shirking work in an Autumnal SIM.  Of course… it is haunted. But nothing’s perfect.

Making the Summit

I did run across a great Hunt while avoiding Juli. The Psycho Pumpkin Hunt from Gossip!Hunts is a 1L hunt with Female, Male and Unisex prizes running until October 27th. I picked up this shirt, ‘Summit’,  from Horr Men’s Wear as their Hunt prize. Just look for the black and orange frosted cupcake and it’s yours.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • David
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • SLink
  • Standard Mesh XS – XL
  • TMP

 

Maybe I can find a few more Hunts before Juli tracks me down.

Cheers,
Gabriel St.James

Lovers in a Dangerous Space Time

Lovers in a Dangerous Space Time

Hello hello Fab Free’rs, and happy hump day! There are a few days left of the current round of Sanarae and if you haven’t been yet, you need to go! Each of the participating designers, save one or two, has out a free gift for Sanarae group members, and the Sanarae group is free to join. Yep, free, no join fees. I picked out several of the many gifts to share with you along with a gacha or two. So to keep this from being a super long post, I’ll get right to the info! Also, there have been a few other posts featuring Sanarae gifts which I’ll be sure to link below in case you missed them.

Kokoro – The Sanarae gift from Kokoro is this adorable headband with 2 of my favorite things, horns, and bat wings! The gift is free, unisex, and can be resized. Just wear your Sanarae group tag and click the gift box at the Kokoro booth.

Go&See – Not all tears are sad. These tint-able tears are the free Sanarae gift from Go&See. The gift comes in appliers only. There is an Omega applier, and a Catwa applier in the package.

S0NG – These dark lovely eyes are part of the free Sanarae group gift by S0NG. The eyes come in a mesh set, classic layer, and an applier for Catwa mesh eyes. Also included with the S0NG gift is a simple black eyeliner applier for Catwa heads.

AMITOMO – The AMITOMO gift is one of my favorites of the free Sanarae group gifts. These cute heart dangle earrings have the word “Love” scrawled across them. Seriously, they are adorable. The earrings have a hud that lets you choose from several colors for the text, and a few metal tones for the rest.

Also from AMITOMO is this cute harnessed shirt-dress. It is part of their LoveHolic gacha at the Sanarae event. The dress comes with a color/texture change hud for the harness straps and bits. The hud allows you to pick from various cute text. The leg strap Pru is wearing is also from the same gacha and gives you the choice of colors and textures to match the dress. The AMIMOTO LoveHolic gacha is just 69 linden per pull.

P.S. I picked up this playable checkers set by The Black Forest for just 10 linden on the Marketplace!

Hiding Out

Hiding Out

Dear Readers,

And why am I hiding out in a smoky bar instead of … socializing on the beach with bikini clad ladies?  Because someone told Juli I was slacking. **Looks pointedly at Izzy** But…

It’s not all bad.

I have my adult beverage of choice, some tobacco products and a smooth new shirt to enjoy them in.  This is the ‘Tygren Shirt’ from Sweet Intoxication and it’s the men’s gift in the 40 Hunt celebrating Crissy Sparrowtree’s fortieth birthday.  There are prizes for both men and women and unisex or home goods as well. Just look for the confetti filled balloons.

Sizes Included

  • Standard Mesh S M L
  • Adam
  • Aestheti
  • Geralt
  • Jake
  • SLink
  • TMP

 

Maybe Juli will get tired of stalking me and I can get back to the beach. *eye roll*

Cheers,
Gabriel St.James

Greetings from Little Havana

Greetings From Little Havana

Dear Readers,

I hope this missive finds you all well and enjoying the last days of the Summer season. Julianna has informed me that she is once again working for your Blogging team and her emails are fill to the brim with her typical giddiness. I don’t know when I’ll return to work as I am off on a walk about on the Grid. Don’t tell Juli. I found this prim seaside town recently and I’m staying a few days. Maybe do a little surfing. If you like old world, vintage charm I urge you to visit here in Little Havana.

Dress for the Occasion

Even if the occasion is a casual afternoon sight seeing. I found this well worn Tee at one of my favorite stops: Cold Ash.  The Montana Tee … yes, I know it says California on it, but it’s the Montana Tee is the latest Group Gift from Cold Ash and it’s free. Even the Group is free to join.

Sizes Included

  • Classic Avi
  • Belleza
  • Gianni
  • SLink
  • TMP

Now, I believe I’m going to test out those waves. Maybe see if the girls in the bikinis are playing volley ball yet…

Cheers,

Gabriel St.James

‘Tis the North Wind that Lashes Men Into Vikings

Into the Woods

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  The pupster and I are popping in really quickly to share a free gift for the guys that Kat spotted when she was looking for prizes in the Country Music Life Hunt.  If you are into role play, this outfit will be right up your alley!  I really like the layered look of the Igor Viking Theme Costume.  The package includes everything you see from my rugged tunic and long sleeved undershirt right down to my brown leather boots.  Also tucked inside is a braided Viking hairstyle and full beard, but I opted not to wear them for my photo.  Although there was no version specifically made for mesh bodies, I was able to get a good fit by adjusting the alpha layer on my Belleza Jake body.  I did have to make use of the Igor mesh hands, which come with the gift because no matter what I tried, I could not get the hands with my body to work right.  They looked pretty natural, though, as you can probably tell from my picture.

What’s Inside the Box:

  • Outfit for Classic Avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Igor Boots in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Resizable Viking Hair (not shown in photo)
  • Resizable Viking Beard (not shown in photo)
  • Igor Hands – left and right

To pick up this fantastic period costume, just head on over to the men’s section upstairs at Brii Underground, activate your Brii Underground Wear group tag (it costs 200L to join), and click the vendor.  I’m off to look for a sturdy longship to sail so Ripley and I can explore foreign lands.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Ready for Fall

Ready for Fall

Hello Fabulous Readers!  With weeks now of high temperatures soaring well over 100 degrees where we live in RL, the pupster and I are certainly ready for fall.  Sadly, we are realistically looking at high temperatures around 100 degrees into October here, so it’s a good thing Rip and I can catch a bit of autumn in SL.  I found just the outfit to help me celebrate cooler temperatures over at the Cart Sale at The Wash.

Layers are the Way to Go

When those crisp mornings arrive, I’ve found the best way to deal with fluctuating temperatures is to dress in layers, and it’s “mission accomplished” with the Russ Outfit from Emerald Couture.  I really like the way the soft green t shirt coordinates with the plaid of the over shirt.  Dark grayish green cargo shorts round out the look.  I just love all the extra storage space in the large pockets in these pants!  Well worn seams and realistic folds contribute to the comfy feel of the outfit.  Although I couldn’t get them to work with my mesh body, a pair of brown and green sneakers for classic as well as Slink feet are included.  The outfit includes only versions for classic bodies, but I was able to get just the right fit by adjusting the alpha layer on my Belleza Jake body.  The best part was the whole shebang cost just 10 Linden dollars at the Emerald Couture cart!

Sizes Included:

  • Two versions of fit mesh shorts plus classic mesh in S, M, L
  • Classic mesh shirt in XS, S, M, XL
  • Shoes for classic as well as Slink feet
  • Alpha layer for shorts and shirt

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Watching the Waves Roll In

Watching the Waves Roll In

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  Rip and I are just popping in with a quick post to share a time-sensitive hunt gift with you.  Gavin has shown you a couple of the Men Only Hunt Prizes in his posts {HERE} and {HERE}.  My top today is another one of the free goodies you can scoop up as you follow the trail of this hunt…. but don’t delay because the MOH ends at 8am on August 18th.

Casual Comfort

The coral colored button down Vivien shirt from A&D Clothing oozes casual comfort with its untucked style and last button unfastened.  I really like the detail in the white stripes and the pushed up sleeves.  In case you are aiming for a more refined look, a HUD is included in the package that allows you to select a tucked version, however, it didn’t work with the particular jeans I pulled on before leaving the house.  I was in a free spirited mood, so it was all good.  The box includes versions for popular mesh bodies as well as one for classic avatars, so it will fit a variety of SL residents.  Best of all, it’s free!  All you need to invest is a bit of time searching around, and honestly, it wasn’t really that hard to find the black mustache hunt icon hidden in the shop.

Versions Included:

  • Classics (one size – includes alpha layer)
  • Adam
  • Geralt
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • TMP

Until next time, happy hunting!
