You Know Everything


You Know Everything

Hello Fab Free’rs, this post is going to be a little bit different in that it’s all about the new male head gift at Akeruka, and a new group gift couples pose at WRONG rather than ladies fashion. Thankfully I have this handsome gentleman of mine here to help. The Akeruka head wouldn’t look even half as good on me as it does on him! Keep reading, and I’ll share more about each of these fantastic group gifts.

That face! The Akeruka Clay head is the latest group gift for Akeruka group members. This male head is a full Akeruka Deluxe mesh bento head complete with animations. Also included with this gift is the Akeruka skin in multiple tones with facial hair options, and body appliers for Slink (Omega), Signature (Omega), and Belleza bodies. The Akeruka group has a one time join fee of 150 linden. To get yours you will need to wear your Akeruka group tag, and pay the gift vendor 1 linden. This gift will be available until July 6th. After July 6th, the Clay head will be for sale at the regular price.

The pose Blue so patiently sat in with me while I took this photo is a free group gift at WRONG. There are actually several group gifts at WRONG, and the store group is free to join. I like the potential narrative this pose lends itself to. The pose is named “You Know Everything” which I also liked. It’s true, Blue pretty much knows everything. This free group gift at WRONG includes individual his and hers poses, along with a cool modern chair to pose in. I’ll include a copy of the vendor ad for this pose by WRONG below so you can get the full effect.

It’s always refreshing to see Designers offering high quality gifts for the men of Second Life.  As Ms. Aline said in her report on the Access Event, the men have not been ignored when it comes to gifts. Nearly every vender of men’s wear has set out a very nice surprise for us. And as Ms. Aline also said: beware the lag! Cam Shopping is the way to go.

All Access

All  of the following items are free at the Access Event when you join the free group. Just wear your tag and help yourself.

Let’s start with my decision not to shave today. Or should I say, selectively shave today. This suave razor cut is from Fe Style. Facial hair style ‘V. GG’ comes with a Catwa and an Omega applier.

Like the shades? These Steampunkish glasses are the ‘Epic Glasses’ from Noir. You’ll get a huge HUD to change every surface to your choice of one of four metal colors. A note here as well on the solid quality of the build. Every detail is spot on.

I know a lot of men don’t like jewelry but I’m not one of them. Like most things in life, it all depends on the quality of the piece. This pendant from Aitui fits the bill perfectly. This is the “Forged Steel Snake” in a deep mahogany color. The necklace is completely resizable to get a correct fit on any body.

Last but not least, my pose is from “Wrong” but it is so right. “W33” comes in four variations and includes a cigarette for the pose. (Don’t tell Juli… she hates smoking) I’ve included a picture of all four poses for you perusal.

In a Mood

In a Mood

It’s not always easy to find good free or almost free things for the men of Second Life. Sometimes, I skip entire events because I just know there’s nothing there for me. I very glad I didn’t skip this round of Cosmopolitan.

Hats off

Or hats on… this is the “Weatherman” from Bondi and it’s the free gift at Cosmopolitan. The hat is technically ‘unisex’ but don’t take this from me. The hat is completely resizable and repositionable so you can get the perfect fit. Just join the Cosmopolitan free group and pick up your gifts.

On the Hunt

In my never ending hunt for men’s fashion, I scour the Hunts each month and this month has been productive. I stumbled on the ‘Red Shoe Diaries’ “Little Black Book Hunt and it has not one but two tracks just for the men. One track, the one I’m showing prizes from, has a 1L price tag for each gift and the second track is 25L per prize.

First up is the “Cole” shirt from The Sissy Bar. As with everything I’ve seen from this designer, Cole is well made and subtly textured. Well worth the 1L and the time hunting.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Jake
  • David
  • Exmachina – Davide
  • Signature – Gianni, Gerault
  • SLink – Physique

Classic Jeans

Next up on the RSD/LBB Hunt are the “Bridgeport Jeans” from Horr Menswear. I really am impressed with these jeans. Jeans are such a staple of our wardrobe, it can be easy to toss out subpar pairs and hope no one notices. Horr Menswear has done just the opposite: they’ve made a first rate pair of jeans. Every detail is perfect and the texture couldn’t be better. And it’s still just 1L and a little hunting.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza Jake
  • Classic Mesh – XS-XL
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink – Physique
  • TMP

Beach Weekend, Part 2

Beach weekend, Part 2

I have to admit, I am enjoying this beach weekend idea of Julianna’s. There’s nothing like the surf and sand and soaking in the sun. Of course, one must look good even while one is being very… very lazy.

Don’t waffle on this one

Waffles, the clothing shop not the breakfast, has a great tank top perfect for being lazy on or off the beach. This is the “Summer Surf Hank Jersey” and it’s the 1L prize for the Summer Lovin’ Hunt. Just find the blue flip flop hidden in the store and it’s yours.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • SLink
  • Jake
  • TMP

Late Night Swim


Late Night Swim

Hey There Fab Free! Welcome to the blog. I think that Blue and I are going to spend as much of the SL summer as we can in swimwear, and I think you should consider doing so also. haha Luckily the Siren’s Song hunt has started and we were able to pick up another matching set of swimsuits for free. The free gear by Dragonmoon Designs also made the perfect excuse for a late night swim, which is possibly one of my favorite warm weather activities.


Late Night Swim 2

F Hint – “Get Lucky”

M Hint – “It’s all Greek to me.”

These free SSH gifts are just waiting to be found at Dragonmoon Designs. They both come in several sizes and include a color change hud with 3 color choices for some added style options. Each prize is hidden separately, but with the provided hints they shouldn’t be too difficult to find. The hunt object is a sand dollar.

Swim Trunk Sizes: Standard Mesh (xs-L), Adam, Aesthetic, Slink, Belleza (Gianni,Jake), TMP *No Alpha Included

Bikini Sizes: Classic/Standard Mesh (xxs- L), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara *No Alpha Included

Just Breathe

Just Breathe

Men’s wear has been somewhat… scarce of late. So I was rather pleased to find a really well made gift set out for the men of Second Life by Breath. There’s also a second jacket and shirt set out that is a mere 50L. I, in fact, helped myself to both generous offerings. You won’t even need a group tag for this one. Thanks, Breath.

Just breathe

There are four versions of the “BB Jacket” set outside on the wall of the Breath store. But at 0L, you can pick up all of them. Each one has a different sleeve design or color. Take a moment, while you’re there, to browse the store. I found the prices to be reasonable and the selection was great.

Sizes Included

  • One size fits all

Denim Days

Denim Days

We finally made it to the weekend, time to kick off the business attire and get comfortable. Last Monday, I showed you the current Group Gift from Complex. But while I was there, I saw they also had a past group gift still available. So I wanted to show it off as well.

Denim Days

My denim jacket and hoodie are a past Group Gift from Complex but they are still out for pick up with your free group tag. They come as a set with a HUD to change the color of the hoodie and the color of the inside of the hood. I found the set to be very well built and fits like a charm.

Sizes Included

  • One size FittedMesh
