Those Lucky Boards…and Shoes…They just Entice me!

Hello again Fabfreer’s!! It is another lovely Thursday in Calle-land. I put together 2 cute outfits to show off today, so I am going to get right to it.

Now, both outfits started off with a trip to Entice. Any time I feel like slapping a Midnight Mania board, or stalking some lucky boards, Entice is always high on my list of stops, as there is always something good to be won there. It was my lucky night when I was there, as ‘C’ came up on the lucky boards 3 times in 5 minutes! Woohoo!

Entice-O-Rama1

The first thing I won, was this nice, casual 1-piece mesh outfit called Come Join the Murder – Purple, consisting of jeans, a shirt, and a fantastic leather jacket.. Yes, that’s right, I said 1-piece! How can you go wrong when you don’t need to worry about whether your mesh shirt will fit with your mesh pants, and then don’t even think about trying to fit a mesh jacket over that mesh shirt! LOL. This takes the guess-work out of it. It comes in all standard sizes, and is free if your letter pops up on the board!

Entice-O-Rama2

Naturally I had to find a pair of shoes that were equally as fantastic as my outfit. I found these beauties on the Marketplace. These Cyber Platform Ankle Boots, for SLink high feet are from Maarii Bachem’s store, MB, and as far as I can tell, are only on Marketplace. Look at the texture on these, and I just love the bright pops of purple on the sides, and the back of the heels. These lovely booties will set you back only L$50! There are a few colour combo’s to choose from, but the purple touches on the black pair just worked so wonderfully with my outfit.

Entice-O-Rama3

My slightly fancier, more suited for evening, look, came from the third lucky board I was able to claim at Entice. The sexy Gail dress in red, is mesh, and comes in the standard sizes. I really love the double layered skirt, especially the edging of lace around the inner layer. So sweet…in a sexy way of course.

Entice-O-Rama4

Needing shoes to go with my dress, I found a just as sexy pair of heels at Pizzazz, the Beatrice Black Snake Pumps, for free for members of the SLF&O group. They are also meant for SLink high feet, hooray for not having to change feet styles when changing my shoes! The added touch of the laces up the back of the heel…so pretty. If you aren’t already a member of SLF&O, when you head to Pizzazz, there is a group join sign right near the gift. Joining, as always, is free :)

Entice-O-Rama5

By now, I’m sure you are aware, I always have to find a nice manicure to go with whatever I am wearing, and how handy was it for me, to find a set that went very nicely with both of my looks. The Swoop Set from Sense-Able Fashions is on the Marketplace, and is only L$25 for the mani and pedi set. I’ve included a picture of the hud so you can see the multi-colour combinations you can choose from. Don’t you just love the little rhinestone accent? So lovely.

So there you have it, a fun day look, and a sultry evening look, I didn’t even have to change my hair! LOL. Hope your Thursday, and each following day, are fabulous, and I will be back next Thursday! Until then TTFN :)

Soooo… you should be able to find a hunt that’s just right for you. Just peruse the list and click on the hunt names that sound interesting. You’ll be well on your way to stuffing your inventory full of free (or nearly free) stuff.

Should The Evenings Grow Cooler…

 

whc kauna fall 1

We are enjoying a beautiful summer now, my favorite season of the year. In real life, I am a warm-weather creature and even in Second Life I tend to avoid cold areas – lest I lose a few pixels to virtual frostbite. However, one pleasant surprise for me lately was seeing some excellent fall wardrobe items pop up this early in the year. I have decided to take a few minutes of valuable beach time and devote them to sharing some cooler weather clothing that has recently been offered to us, the male bargain hunters of Second Life.

The FREE FaMeshed group gift this month comes from Kauna and includes the diamond orange sweater, the steel blue XIV shirt and tweed overcheck trousers (not shown here). All three items are of excellent quality and look very much like real life clothing. The sweater is beautifully shaded and textured. I bet by the time fall arrives, it will be my favorite pullover. The realistic steel blue XIV shirt looks great without the sweater as well. The tweed overcheck trousers have a beautiful dark texture on them and are definitely a keeper, but for the pic I opted for sharp black tuxedo trousers that I bought from Kauna recently. The main reason I couldn’t wait to show you this though is located in the “additional items” box inside the group gift. Kauna, in addition to a generous array of options and sizes included in this gift, added a bonus box with some extra variations as well. This means you can wear both the sweater and that beautiful blue shirt under that amazing men’s Kuana leather jacket that they gave away last month at FaMeshed! The Jacket, which I blogged here previously looks fantastic! I have been on the lookout for some great things to wear under it, and this is a perfect chance to get a sweater and a shirt that look absolutely perfect with it! In case you missed it when Tiana posted it previously here, you finally have a second chance to pick it up. Hurry though, the month is nearly over, and whether you were lucky enough to get the jacket last month or not, this is a great chance to get very high quality clothing for FREE!

IKON is offering another FREE group gift for a very limited time. If you click the above picture, and once you are in my flickr, click the picture once more, you will get a closer look at the IKON Odyssey Eyes – Clarity. They are a light gray-ish blue with distinctively shaped pupils and plenty of reflections. They are Mesh, but could be used as system eyes if you prefer. They even included a hud to make fitting and selecting options easier. I don’t expect them to be out long, so run to IKON to pick up these FREE eyes while they are still available.

whc fall Fe Style 1

The Menstuff Hunt has been great this time around. All month I have been posting fabulous clothing and items that were part of it. Now, with the hunt ending at the end of the month, this is my last chance to share some items with you that I thought worthy of special attention. Fe Style is offering this light denim jacket that is going to be perfect as the season turns to fall or for a cool summer’s night. The Tartan Denim Jacket is a mesh one-piece including the white T-Shirt, comes in 5 sizes for worry free fit, and looks lightweight and comfortable to wear. I love the range of colors in the jacket! It manages to be multihued, yet is very easy on the eyes with its mix of blues and gray. For the cost of only 1L this is definitely a good pickup, and yet another reason for people to hunt the Menstuff Hunt (even if they haven’t started yet).

The riot of color in the lower two pictures comes courtesy of Come Soon Poses. Their FREE gift for the Menstuff Hunt, *CS* Paparazzo is a beautiful fall-themed photo prop that I am thrilled to put to use already. It comes with a bench and a pose, but you can always move them out of the way and substitute whichever items you intend to use. The colors are vibrant, and when fall comes around this will be an excellent addition to your photo prop collection, or even to your own back yard.

whc fall lovecats 1

The Menstuff Hunt gift from Lovecats is the No Club Jacket, the perfect article of clothing to wrap up my coverage of the Menstuff Hunt for now. It is a one-piece mesh item, but it appears to have 4 layers of clothing (a T-Shirt, shirt, hoodie and jacket) integrated into it. It comes in five sizes for a good fit. Although it is very snug around my waist and required some emergency slider dieting, the great look of the garment more than made up for that tiny inconvenience. “Lone wolf – no club” is emblazoned on the back with a white wolf logo giving it a biker style look. Each part of the mesh looks very realistic and, since it is one piece, it is very easy to wear once you perfect its fit for your avi. Biker style, unbelievably inexpensive, and simple to wear, Fe Style did a superb job on this FREE gift. I hope you like it as much as I do.

Next up, I will be doing the Biker Hunt, which started just two days ago. I want to point out that Tellaq, an excellent store for male skins, has a Midnight Mania board at their main store. The group is required, but it is free. Although the target number seems high, when new skins and avy packages get put up on the board the target is met for several days. I should know, because that Midnight Mania is a regular stop for me on Second Life, and I get nearly every prize package they offer. Tellaq is especially good at darker skins which feature extremely highly defined muscle textures. It just so happens that the skin currently on the midnight mania board is called “Saint” and is perfect for my new biker look, as you can see here. If you are looking for a skin upgrade, haunt the MM board and you will probably come up with something that pleases you. It’s worth the effort.

Well, with my sneak peek into fall now complete, I think I am going to strip off these clothes and hit a nice, quiet beach for a little “me” time. Please, enjoy the rest of the summer with us at Fab Free and don’t worry, we will keep an eye out for amazing deals whatever the season. Until next time, get some sun and I will see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

The Doll Up Hunt just started yesterday and is leading the field of popular hunts. It’s a good sized hunt with 55 stores. Look for the dolls. Each prize is L$1.

For the guys, there’s the For Him Hunt. 32 stores with prizes for men. It’s also a L$1 hunt.

There are plenty of other hunts to choose from as well. Click the names for more information on each one and I’m sure you can find one to your liking.

Just a reminder, that these are the 10 most popular viewed hunts over the past 48 hours or so. We don’t know how many people actually start (or finish) any given hunt and this ranking can (and probably will) change in a few hours.

See you out on the hunt!
