Satyrically Speaking…


Hello my friends! I have been working my pixels off searching for awesome and unique Halloween-related items for men this year. I am starting off my October posts by showing you my favorite costume of the year so far: The Satyr from Siren’s Moon. The Satyrs were lustful, drunken woodland Gods. In short, my kind of deities! I considered researching Satyrs to fill this post with fascinating background information about them… but, why do that if I can make stuff up!?! For instance, did you know the Satyrs were not driven extinct because of acute liver problems related to alcoholism? You would think that, but after significant consideration, I came to the conclusion it was most likely due to stumbling drunkenly in the woods and choking to death on their pan flutes. At least I am pretty sure that’s how I would have gone had I been a Satyr.

Anyway, Siren’s Moon has made this excellent costume, a tribute to Greek mythology and the Satyrs, companions of Dionysus the Greek God of fertility and wine. The costume consists of a lower body alpha, a pants texture and beautifully done goat-influenced Satyr legs and tail. A laurel wreath and a set of horns provide the head with an authentic look. Together with a pan flute, this is quite an impressive hunt gift. So, if you are looking for a Halloween costume and want to stand out, this is a great pick up! For only 1L, it truly is a bargain. Take care everyone and, until next time, see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Stargazing in Wicca’s Wardrobe

“Only when it is dark enough, can you see the stars.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

This is the time of year that we are reminded that there is beauty to be had in the simple pleasures of life — things like nature walks, the crisp bite of the fall wind, camp-outs with a friend, and yes — even in Second Life — stargazing.

A Wicca's Camp Out [2]

“Bright Star! Would I were steadfast as though art –
Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night
And watching with eternal lids apart,
Like nature’s patient, sleepless Eremite,
The moving waters at their priestlike task
Of pure ablution round earth’s human shores.”
– John Keats

Of course on those cooler fall evenings, stargazing calls for a little bit warmer clothing — and thank goodness Wicca’s Wardrobe is here to help out with clothes for both the guys and the gals with their sweet, sweet steals! For just a one time 50L group join, you will have access to all their present and past group gifts, including male and female group gifts. These range from dresses, pants, full outfits, and shoes… to poses as well!

Above you can see that Riler and Astrid found matching Indian Summer jeans in a great late shade of fading late autumn brown and Riler is sporting a pair of October Boots called Easy Rider Boots. These are both great gifts from Wicca’s Wardrobe, which you can call “yours,” once your group tag is steadfastly in place.

A Wicca's Camp Out

“If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I’ll bet they’d live a lot differently. When you look into infinity, you realize there are more important things than what people do all day.” – Bill Watterson, Calvin and Hobbes

These male and female jackets by Wicca’s Wardrobe came separate from the jeans, but look as if they were just made for them, and certainly are a matching set for any two friends who need to stay warm on autumn evening camp outs to star gaze and discuss the really important things in life.

The male version of the jacket which Riler is wearing is called Luke and comes in all the standard mesh sizes. It is one piece (the undershirt with coat attached) for easy fitting, and is a great compliment to the female version of the jacket called Leia which Astrid is sporting. Leia too is one piece in all the standard sizes and fits just as nicely.

There are plenty of new and old group gifts to be had for your piddly 50L group join gift. You’ll be able to fill a small closet (or wardrobe!) for that small bit of change. Don’t miss out on the chance to check out Wicca’s Wardrobe!

Bravo, BRAVURA Homme!

bravura 3_001

I feel conflicted today. It is always sad news to me when a creator closes their in-world store, although it happens often enough we should be used to it. The good news for all the guys out there though is that while BRAVURA Homme is closing their in-world store, they will be maintaining their marketplace presence. In their announcement they even mentioned there will be upcoming new releases sold there! Today though, as sad as I am about losing another excellent in-world store, it’s time for a last minute sale!!!

The Ankle Boots Wcut in Grey Snake and Brown Snake are my favorite items in this sale. I love boots in general and many years ago I had a gorgeous grey water snake pair in real life. Upon seeing these beautifully done legacy (non-slink) boots, with their uppers in leather and with Wcut snakeskin accents, I knew I had to have them…in both colors! These are each on sale today only (September 30th) for 48L per pair. What a fantastic find! For the snake lovers, there is also a brown pair of these at BRAVURA Homme with the super Wcut styling but without the snakeskin texture. Relax though; no virtual snakes were harmed during the creation of these boots.

whc bravura 3_001

All the men’s items are on sale today, and there is a ton of selection spread out over two floors. I really liked this Smart Casual Outfit w/HUD Classic as shown in the above pic on the right side. The shirt comes in a light pastel blue or white changeable via hud and the vest and pants each give you three colors to choose from. The sale price for this nice looking set as shown with the black vest and pants is 88L. If you decide you like it as much as I did, you can buy expansion huds for different colors. I got the Add On – Browns Hud for just an additional 40L. As you can see, it looks very stylish indeed.

Well I am out of time for now. Be sure to stop by the BRAVURA Homme in-world store today and see what other finds you discover. They have mesh T-Shirts and Casual Shirts in the 30-40L range, a nice Scottish looking Kilt w/texture hud for only 48L and a ton of other distinctively styled garments. Until next time my friends, enjoy the sale and I’ll see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

FabFree Designer of the Day - Adoness

The Hair Shedding Hunt is a store wide event at Adoness. In this hunt you will have to search for small COMBS which are hidden all around the main store. Each COMB is priced at 10L and includes one hairstyles in two colors. The colors were created specially for this Hunt and can not be found among the regular hair color packs. The Hunt runs from September 25 through October 31!

You Drive Us Wild, We’ll Drive You Crazy!

whc kisscats 1

Hey, it’s a group of Detroit rock kitties and tonight they’re gonna rock you! J&A Rock Culture has come out with this great T-Shirt as a FREE gift for The Autumn Effect Hunt. I can only hope they are on better terms with each other backstage than their famous idols are. The Men’s Long Sleeve T-Shirt Set-Indie 3 comes in five mesh sizes to guarantee an excellent fit. Plus, this FREE hunt gift comes with a hud giving you three texture color options. It is a very cute T-Shirt, and the texture and graphic design are fun indeed. On a trivial note, I am pretty sure I know which cat is Gene Simmons. That’s the one that looks like he just got the bill for another trashed hotel room. Next week, we will hear them covering Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” on Unplugged, just you wait.

The Autumn Effect Hunt has several interesting hunt prizes that are definitely worth picking up. My eyes in these pictures are a fantastic FREE hunt prize from ARISE. Previously posted by Pru here, the Autumn eyes are a beautiful light color and an excellent pick up for those of us on Second Life that love to collect quality eyes. Zoom in on my pictures and I am sure you will see why I pounced on them the second I heard they were available as a hunt gift. The hunt object you are looking for on The Autumn Effect Hunt resembles a small hockey puck shaped prim. They aren’t very hard to find and are seriously worth the effort.

whc bdazzled1_001

For clothes with a masculine look, camouflage is often used as a texture. V-Spot has a talent for making masculine clothing with a very real-world aesthetic, and their FREE hunt gift for The Autumn Effect Hunt is an excellent example. The Kamo T-Shirt is a ringer Tee, with the body having a realistic camouflage texture. The sleeves are light gray in contrast with the body of the shirt. Excellent design choices like that add up to create a style that appears simple and completely natural, giving this shirt the real-life look that I love. The Kamo T-Shirt comes in three basic Mesh sizes, plus an additional two Fitmesh sizes, so fit should not be an issue. This T-Shirt is definitely something that deserves your attention, as does V-Spot. So, pop by and take a look for this wonderful FREE hunt prize.

This was an excellent week to be a T-Shirt hunter. With my obsession for soft looking, realistic T-Shirts, I was absolutely in heaven as I worked on The Autumn Effect Hunt. The Loyalty is Royalty T-Shirt bears a catchy phrase that rings true. On a grid full of much meaner-spirited tees, this positive sentiment stands out charmingly. This FREE hunt gift from B-DAZZLED for The Autumn Effect Hunt comes in five sizes for men, two of which are Fitmesh. Included in the same box is a version for women in layers and with an Omega applier. It is an admirably attractive garment with a positive message. In fact, clothes like this could result in the Kiss kitties above reuniting for a world tour!

I want to point out these great jeans that I use often to show off blog items. Illi, one of my favorite stores on the grid has a pair of open belt jeans on their Midnight Mania board and they are a must for male avies who want a fantastic pair of FREE jeans. They are Mesh and come with a texture hud giving you 8 different denim colors, including the three I showed this week in my pictures. These are super versatile and quite well made. The target is extremely low right now since they have been on the board a while. It should not be hard to close the Midnight Mania Board every night for at least the next week to make sure more people have a chance to collect these awesome jeans.

That’s it for this week, time to put the Kiss kitties to bed and let them wander off into dreamland. They wanna rock and roll all night and party every day, but one bowl of warm milk and they are out for hours (just like me). Take care everyone and I’ll see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Why Stop At Just A Ribbon?

Pink femboy 1_001

Ok, let’s get this out of the way… I am not advertising Kmart’s new “Prince For Men” collection coming this fall! Also, I am not role-playing as the recruiter for Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. With that out of the way, this is a jaw-droppingly gorgeous mesh outfit from Brocade Tiger and is available right now as a hunt gift. I know this isn’t for everyone, but Fab Free IS for everyone. If I see something that blows me away, I will show it to you even if I am more of a T-Shirt and jeans guy. The male community in SL is generally under-served as far as freebies and hunt items, so the niche markets contained within it are rarely shown much love at all.

The item that blew me away is this Flamingo Tux from Brocade Tiger, a truly fantastic piece of work. This 2L hunt prize from The Femboy Hunt is beautifully textured and the actual shape of the mesh is flawless. I rarely see something I would rate any higher in quality than this garment. It is a single piece of mesh, so it’s easy to wear and the fit is excellent. The color…well, it isn’t a color I wear often, and Wow! There certainly is a lot of it! The pink is superbly eye catching. This suit is definitely not meant to blend into a crowd. You don’t have to be a femboy to enjoy this outfit. There are occasional “Best In Pink” contests at dance clubs, and this outfit should definitely make you a contender for the top prize. If I were a performer in SL, like a singer, I would jump on this attention-grabbing outfit. These are both solid reasons to consider wearing it, but I saved the best reason for last.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in the United States. The majority of us have been touched by cancer in our lives through our wives, mothers, sisters, and other cherished loved ones, both in first life and in Second Life. Cancer in general, even breast cancer, is not limited to one gender. Nearly all of us are witnesses to the suffering that our friends and acquaintances face in their struggle to stay in our lives. Charity events and hunts will take place all over the grid to raise money and awareness for this very serious cause, and the color pink will be splashed all over SL in solidarity with those battling breast cancer. Running from September 26th to October 11th, The The Rock Your Rack Gridwide Hunt (10L) will be a great way for female avies to support the cause. Additionally, from October 4th to October 25th, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer’s Boobie Full Hunt (2L) will take place! While these hunts will focus on female avies, male avies should consider offering to help friends hunt in one of these charity events. It is a fun way to spend time with someone and to show your support for those around you who are valiantly fighting for their lives on a daily basis. Cancer has touched my life repeatedly. So, aside from possibly wearing this outfit for an occasional contest, this item is now in my permanent wardrobe in memory of someone I lost, someone who beat cancer twice before finally succumbing to it, someone who gave me every good quality that I possess, and none of my flaws. I will think about her as I wear this beautiful pink suit over the coming weeks and smile for having been so blessed by her love.

That is all for this week, a rare post in which I focused my attention on a single item. It is worthy of that attention, and I am glad it gave me the opportunity to mention the upcoming events in October which are extremely important. Take care and I’ll see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

The Cart Sale Event: JZ For Men

cart sale jz 2_001

Greetings everyone from The Wash Cart Sale where 10L will buy you an amazing variety of items! If you haven’t come down to check it out yet, time is dwindling. The sale is on through the 16th so now is your last, best chance to pick up some serious bargains. I am standing by the JZ For Men cart who are offering six very realistic looking shirts for sale at the low price of 10L each. They are fitmesh and each design comes in 2 sizes, normal and large. I love the actual texture and design of the shirts but I have to recommend that you try the demo first, as avies who tend to be smaller especially (like I am) may have some fit issues. If you don’t care for the fit of the demo, the non-fitmesh sizes will be available at the JZ For Men store for you to check out. For now, come on by and give the demo a try, for 10L for a nice realistic T-Shirt, you might very well find it a bargain! —–WHC Riler

The Men’s Only Hunt Part 2

whc moh 4c_001

This week I will share with you even more of the wonderful prizes I found on the FREE Men’s Only Hunt! The hunt object you are seeking resembles the item I spend a lot of time seeking in real life, a tall golden glass of beer. The hunt is not difficult and ends on September 13th, so this is your last chance to get your share of these fantastic items.

Let’s start with a pic that actually cools me off just looking at it! Just imagine the cool breeze coming off the water and rustling through the lush greenery, as yet untouched by the wicked embrace of Fall. I am wearing the FREE Men’s Only Hunt Gift from ::K::. The Villa Vest Homme Marsala is a beautifully made mesh T-Shirt and vest combo in a color combination that makes looking cool and breezy, well… a breeze. When I opened it I was surprised to see only a single size similar to FitMesh in the box, and that did concern me, until I put it on. It fits my avy and my small array of test shapes very well! I found the white and pastel pink combination pairs easily with a variety of pants. It’s that versatility of looking good with a wide range of other clothes that makes this a standout garment. For this picture, I chose casual beige chinos from my inventory made by Larnia Couture Designs. I am very pleased with the way the outfit came together. One final note about this item: Included in the box is a female version. So, once again, even though the name of the hunt says “Men’s Only” there are a few gems to be had for the ladies as well.

The Hair I am wearing is a FREE hunt gift from Mina Hair. Their hunt prize for the Men’s Only Hunt is a high quality men’s hair named “Mark” offered in a selection of greys and in both materials enabled and non-materials enabled versions. I like the look of it quite a bit despite the fact that my avy doesn’t usually wear grey hair. The greys are accessible via an easy-to-use hud and Mina Hair has generously left it manually tintable so you also have the option of manually tinting it to further personalize your look. This is a very handsome hair and highly worthy of extra attention from everyone!

As always, this Men’s Only Hunt had a wide variety of items for male avies all over Second Life. So, if chilling on a rowboat on a glassy lake isn’t your thing then maybe this excellent camouflage T-Shirt is more your fashion. The FREE hunt gift from AR2 Style, the Military V-Neck Shirt is a muted camo pattern Tee that looks considerably masculine while maintaining its relaxed styling. The prize includes three sizes plus one in fitted mesh, so fit should be no problem at all. If you are lucky enough to have a mesh body from The Mesh Project, there is a version included for you too. You might not look like a soldier wearing it, but you will definitely look like you can take care of yourself. Truly, that’s all the spiders in my bathroom need to know. This time, it’s WAR!

Also, in my somewhat surreal military patrol pic is another laudable FREE hunt prize from the Men’s Only Hunt. Offered by Le Poppycock, the “Summer Is Dead” Pose comes with props, including the non-firing weapon that is in my hands, and a surfboard with some bullet holes and a bit of blood on it. It is well done and fits superbly into the general theme of the hunt (The End Of Summer).

Music lovers will love the Sound-Man T-Shirt, especially if they have a love of Eighties music. Emblazoned on this T-Shirt from V-Spot is one of the great icons of the Eighties, Pac-Man! Given a slight makeover and sporting some serious head phones, this icon has returned in a soft-looking, well-textured Tee, just the kind I love the most. It is extremely realistic and could appeal to those of us with retro leanings, dj’s, or just people who love music. No matter who you are, this FREE hunt prize will turn at least a few heads your way on the grid.

On my wrist, I am showing off another great FREE hunt prize from the Men’s Only Hunt! The “Sinister” Cuffs from Rebellion are a matching set (left and right) studded black leather bracers adorned with a gothic style cross. The look is very rock and roll, although they are perfectly acceptable gothwear if that is your preferred style. This hunt really did have something for everyone!

These new tattoo sleeves from Swagged Out are yet another FREE hunt gift from the Men’s Only Hunt. I love tattoos that leave plenty of skin unadorned, so a sleeve tat like this is an excellent choice. It covers the arms while leaving the chest and back open either for another favorite tattoo or for a display of gloriously bare skin. The “Good Fortune” tattoo package is offered in faded or fresh ink and includes appliers for TMP, Slink, Signature, Omega and Niramyth bodies.

I have to ask you to take a closer look to see the last item for this week. Click on the above picture to get into my flickr then click one more time to see the close up image. My usual face was used in the military patrol pic, but in the Pac-pic if you look closely at my face, you can see I am wearing an additional item. This fantastic bit of magic is from Unorthodox and is their FREE hunt gift for the Men’s Only Hunt! The Miyagi Facial Hair has 4 facial hair options and comes with the resizable prim beard. The effect on me was to give more definition to the facial hair i already had while adding a prim beard to give me a more updated look. The hunt prize also comes with a Hud, a TMP applier and instructions making this a very generous package for us hunters to snap up. Hunt prizes like this are rare, and if you are a male avy on SL you should go get this free gift immediately. One day, it just might be the perfect thing to give you that extra realistic look.

The hunt kept me busy and I am sorry to see it end. It was another great men’s hunt and, although sometimes I worry about the decreasing availability of quality low cost items for male avies on Second Life, hunts like this help to dispel my fears. There are still a great deal of wonderful items for FREE or very low cost for male avies, you just need to have patience and enjoy the process of hunting for them. Until next time, happy hunting and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler
