Step Right Up And Enjoy The Show.

awesome stunt show 1

As a young boy, I witnessed a man in a raggedy, sequined outfit jump over a pair of trailers on his dirt bike, much to the delight of the crowd. Years later, here I am on the shoulder of Route 23, promoting the debut of my own daredevil show. I chose to wear a group gift from TentatioN. It is very casual and sporty, but with the camouflage pattern on the cargo pants pockets and in the lower corner of the shirt, it also says, “I am a warrior.” Sometimes, it’s best to let your clothes speak for you (unless they are going to say “I’m a dork”, then there is no reason to give them a megaphone). This, however, says volumes in a positive, masculine manner.  The gift comes with a color change hud, providing four color choices for both the mesh shirt and the pants. TentatioN is not a free group, though. It will set you back 30L, but this outfit in four colors is worth it.

I grew up in Los Tres Dolores New Mexico , a town named for a mystical formation of three cacti. For my death-defying entry into the world of show business, I will jump over that local landmark in the greatest riding lawnmower jump in the history of mankind! At first glance a lawnmower it may not appear to be the best choice for soaring through the air, but isn’t a riding mower essentially a helicopter that has been flipped upside down? This very detailed (and shockingly fast) mower is the current FREE group gift from Knight Performance. This store along with the one which shares the building with them (Surplus Motors) are great sources for beautifully detailed vehicles in SL. Both stores are free groups and offer many Midnight Manias, group gifts and discounts. If you have any interest in vehicles on Second Life, you should seriously consider joining them.

If you are going to let your clothes do the speaking for you, this Rockabilly Hunt prize jacket from The Dark Fae positively screams, “Rebel.” Its cool stand-up collar and retro styling including a must see graphic on its’ back are perfect for people who don’t follow the rules, like me (even if it’s because I can’t be bothered to read them). The Rebel Soul Jacket sports versions with and without the t-shirt and comes in three sizes, plus an additional two sizes in fitmesh. Cool style is timeless, and this jacket is perfectly cool! This Rockabilly Hunt prize is not free, but at only 2L, it’s a bargain. These jeans are extraordinary as well, coming from a quickly expanding store called Illi. Currently on their Midnight Mania board, these Midnight Open Belt Jeans are nicely textured and look great, and a big surprise was the texture hud that came with them. Illi gives us 8 denim colors, 4 belt colors and 4 metal accent textures for the belt. That is excellent versatility for a free gift! It does carry a small logo, but it is easy to overlook, given the generosity of this Midnight Mania prize. Also worth noting are my mesh white leather sneakers, fresh from the Wayward Hunt. The prize, from the store United Colors, comes in both men’s and ladies’ sizes and with that touch of blue on them they look fantastic for a FREE hunt gift. I was truly impressed!

Well, I dressed for success and I did everything right but sometimes that just isn’t enough. Sometimes in life the ramp just isn’t high enough, or maybe the wind shifts, or maybe a lawn mower just isn’t meant to fly. A person could drive themselves crazy sitting back and reflecting over those kinds of things, but not me. I am on to my next great adventure and I hope you will be there with me.—–WHC Riler

Little did I realize when I started on Second Life (watching Fab Free and jumping on any freebie I could get my hands on) that someday I would have the chance to contribute to this amazing resource. It gives me great pride to be joining Fab Free as a weekly contributor and I look forward to the great adventure ahead. Getting down to business, there is an excellent Midnight Mania prize out over at Ruca Tease. One great thing about this Mesh Men’s Spilled Paint Open Hoodie w/Shirt is that it comes with a texture change hud. This gives you the flexibility of seven great color options. Very casual and comfortable looking, it is definitely a Midnight Mania board worth tapping, you don’t even have to be in the group!  Do it today though, I hear it could be taken down as early as Friday! Also this week, I’m wearing the FREE GIFT from Poetic Colors. You’ll love these spotted eyes in the tropic color. The gift is very generous as it includes both mesh and system eyes, 3 sizes, and 3 brightness variations. They are quite unique looking, and for those of us who collect great eyes, they are not to be missed!  I want to thank Love, Pru, Julianna and all the other contributors to Fab Free for this opportunity to contribute to a blog I’ve admired for a very long time. I hope my time here will be as rewarding for all of you as it will be for me.—–WHC Riler

Mr. Pink

Santino Male GG

Hello again Fab Free’rs, it’s Pru in the form of Diamos, again. I’ve been enjoying the ability to show you some of the great finds I come across for all our male readers out there. Originally I had intended to show you this FREE Group Gift for the guys from Santino Design along with the female gift I showed here, but I was having some technical issues so I split the gifts up and now here we are!

I think it shows confidence and character when guys are willing to wear bright colors that might sometimes have been considered “feminine” colors. This mesh hoodie is a great example of some casual menswear in a bright fun color. I think it looks great. The Santino Design Group is FREE to join, and the hoodie is a current FREE gift for all group members.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Skin – the body co. Hunter II

For now, call me Jack.

Well Hello there. I know it’s been a while, so I’ll re-introduce myself, I’m Prudence Rexroth’s alt, Diamos. For the purpose of this post, you can call me Jack. Previously, the ladies have shown several of the Jack or Jill Hunt items. Now Pru wanted to show off some of the men’s items, and while she can wear just about anything, most of the items from the “Jack” path of the hunt look better on me. :P

To start, there are many many awesome finds on the Jack path, these were just a few personal favorites. The skin Diamos has on, complete with 5-o’clock shadow is the FREE JOJH Gift from 7Deadly Skins.  There are not any appliers or hair-bases included, however I think it’s a rather nice looking skin, and a great place to start whether you’re new to Second Life or just looking for a change.

American Bazaar is also participating on the Jack path of this hunt. Their FREE hunt prize is this fully mesh trench. I have to admit, I felt a little bit like the character John Bender from The Breakfast Club while wearing this coat, which only made me like it more! The jacket comes in standard mesh sizes, and includes an alpha layer. The hand tattoos are another JOJH prize, also FREE, from Identity Body Shop. The tattoos come in fresh and faded versions, with  a glove layer and they include an applier for TMP, and Slink.

If you ever wanted a good “everyday” pair of jeans, and you didn’t want to pay for them, now is your chance! The JOJH FREE prize from Biscuit is just that, a really nice pair of mesh jeans. In addition to the standard sizes and alpha layer, these pants include 2 color change huds with a wide range of options to match just about anything. The last stop on this little review of the Jack Path of the JOJ Hunt is Duh!. These cool shoes come in 2 variations and include a resize script and an alpha for just the right fit. Did I mention they are FREE?

I’m sure you also noticed two different hairstyles in the photos. I have good news about those as well. Both hairstyles are gifts from Atro Patena. I do want to note however that they do not include hair-bases. The first style is the Atro Patena VIP group gift. Group members can pick it up for FREE with a group join fee of $5o lindens. Additionally, this is a unisex hair, so ladies, come get it! The hair is called Paris and comes in a fatpack of colors. Next is Rome, which is a FREE Subscribo gift. Simply join the Subscribo, the hair is yours. You might need to look in the history, or click the vendor. Ether way, it’s completely FREE, no need to join the group for this one.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Guest Blog by: Riot Bayn – featuring Ashbury

“Reality leaves a lot to the imagination.” – John Lennon

For many of us, Second Life is where our imaginations go to play and explore. The title of this post, a quote by my favorite Beatle, John Lennon, says a lot about life. It explains a lot about our second lives as well. We explore, we learn, we develop as avatars and (despite what some people believe) we do so as people at the same time. Our imaginations can develop when our real life limitations disappear. Indulging in these opportunities for play can help us become better and more rounded people. This is what I wish for all of us in 2015: A year of imaginations on the rampage and peace and joy spreading across the grid, trickling into all of our other lives. I was thrilled to see a FREE group gift from ASHBURY recently, one that is perfect for my first post of 2015. It’s the Dean Leather Jacket & Shirt, a MESH one piece combo that includes a FITMESH version as well! The jacket has a great leather texture, detailed stitching, and features striking metallic accents in the zippers and buttons. The shirt portion is a white Beatles tee, which will make a lot of people smile when they see it. Musical tastes vary, but The Beatles’ importance in music is impossible to deny. Together, it’s a timeless leather jacket with realistic detailing and an iconic shirt that many people will love. That is one heck of a great FREE group gift, and exactly how I want my blogging year to begin. I want to thank all of you for helping me grow this blog and allowing it to become a source of pride for me and the others who contribute to its success. In March, it will celebrate it’s first birthday, something I look forward to greatly. There is a Lennon anecdote, familiar to many, which I will repeat due to its great personal significance for me. “When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”

Monday Grey

Happy Monday, my dears!
It’s kind of gray and gloomy here in my RL and it put me in the mood for oversized cardigans and cozy things. Mr. Poet has supplied just the thing for a chilly wet day: their “Bat Sleeved Knit Coat”. Now, technically, this cardigan and scarf are for the boys but I think they look great on anyone.
Snapshot_001

This is the gray cardigan but you also get a black one and a blue one in the gift. The “Wide Scarf” is a separate gift, it is resizable and has ten color changes. I was really impressed with the quality of the builds on these items. Both gifts are free for everyone!

Topping this casual day look is my new do from Cheveux. This is their Christmas gift now available to everyone for 1 little Linden. You can find it in the main store or on the Marketplace. I love the soft mix of browns and golds in the aptly named “Brown Mix. The style also comes in a pale blonde in the gift.

Y’all stay warm today!

Shamic’s running amok with the Men Only Hunt!

So, I’ve decided to let Shamic do a post tonight since I had already done 2 for myself earlier. Plus, there are some great men’s things available right now with the Men Only Hunt 5 going on. I also suggested he head over to the ‘stuff Lounge and see if there were some goodies to show off.

MOH51

So, Shamic made a few stops from the Men Only Hunt list, which you have to get from HERE, as there are no LM’s in each hunt prize to send you to the next location. Luckily, the list also includes hints, which made the prizes a little easier to find. When I saw DuckNipple on the list, that was the first place I sent Shamic too, as I knew there would be something good. Neither of us were disappointed. The long-sleeved, striped sweater he has on is their hunt gift, and, as with all of the gifts, it was free. It is mesh, and comes in 2 fitmesh sizes, as well as 3 standard sizes. Shamic is a standard medium, but he had to go with the small, as they fit a little on the large size. The other hunt prize he’s showing off is from MINA Hair. His Alex knit toque and dark brown hair combo is their hunt prize, and you actually get 2 different hair versions, as well as the hat without the hair, meaning this is easily a unisex prize. It also comes with a HUD to change the texture of the toque. When hunting for MOH5 prizes, you are looking for a tall glass of beer :) . It made me thirsty! LOL.

MOH52

After clothing himself in his new finds, Shamic’s trip to the ‘stuff Lounge rewarded him with a new pair of sneakers. These multicoloured chucks are from Citrus, and are a free MENstuff group gift. The MENstuff group is L$50 to join, but the gifts from the different designers are always getting switched out, so there is always good stuff to grab.

MOH53

I think Shamic is rather pleased with his look. What do you think? Not bad for a bunch of freebies eh? OK, we are out of here, I’ve let Shamic have enough time running around by himself and it’s time for me to put him away before he gets into trouble. LOL! Until next time, TTFN.
