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

A Splash Of Color You Don’t Want To Brush Off!

WHC FF RTPAINT 3

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

Worth staying up for

There is nothing quite like finding a “New to Me” designer that when I find their shop I want to buy it out!  More Than Ever  fits that bill perfectly.

Worth Staying Up For

I had to stay up late to make sure I got this first dress on the blog because it’s on sale. But only until the 26th! Which is…today!  This is the gorgeous ‘Crushed Silk One Shouldered Gown’ and it comes in six scrumptious colors but the ‘Strawberry’ just stood out to me. I love the texture details in the skirt and the rich color.  I think it’s a lovely look for Spring.

More Than Ever also has a Free to join Group/Subscribers List that will automatically give you this sweet Chemise in Silvery Moon when you sign up. The ‘Enchanted Chemise’ also comes in five other delicate colors for you to purchase. I certainly couldn’t resist.

Worth Staying Up For

Plus, while you’re there, there is a Midnight Madness board with a very reasonable sign up quota, a Hunt coming in May and a ‘My 60L Secret’ board.  You just can’t go wrong.

Enticing Karissa

Snapshot_002I was so craving a day of “hot and sunny” today, but in the real world it’s just cold and miserable still lol, so I decided to get a little inworld heat fix at Baja Norte.  I may just stay here until it’s warm in my end of the RL world lol.

I am displaying the Karissa Outfit by Entice that includes the mesh denim skirt and floral blouse.  You can obtain this adorable summery outfit absolutely free by slapping the midnight mania board at the Entice shop (providing it locks down that is).  There is no need to join the group to be eligible for this midnight mania board prize, but if you like, you can join the group (it’s free) and hit the group board for another fashionable outfit too  ;)

Careless Whisper

Snapshot_005
Good evening Fabulouses! I have a super important job for you to do first thing in the morning (SL time of course –  we are all operating by it now, aren’t we?)…  If you like this two piece mesh Careless Whisper Outfit that I am wearing today, head over to Precious Designs and slap the midnight mania board for your free copy to be sent to you at midnight (providing of course the board locks down).  I would send you there tonight, however it has already locked down for the day, and locked down early yesterday too!

This set includes the mesh pants and T-Shirt/Vest Combo as well as a texture change hud that allows you to change the colours of the pants, top, vest and belt for plenty of mix and matching.  I am wearing the Maitreya Lara body, and the alphas work well with it.
