Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007

The Radio Grind at the Wash Cart Sale shows me I don’t need clothes to paint.

Well look at this, it’s Thursday already! I have to admit, my week didn’t start out the best, I was feeling a little under the weather. When feeling like that, there are a few things that make me feel better…finding stuff to show all you fab readers, being creative, and cats. Yup, you heard me. So for my feature post this week, I was able to combine all 3! Go me!

painting1

First of all, I have to tell you about my super cute outfit…well, I’ll call it an outfit, but in reality, it’s a painter’s smock, a cute bra and pantie set, and paint, lot’s of it, which inspired my colourful painting of cats. My Painted Lady look is courtesy of The Rebakery for Radio Grind at The Wash Cart sale that I know you all know is still going on. For a whole L$10, you get a multitude of system layers of body paint, from your head, to your hands to your legs. A bra and pantie set, on your underwear layers, and a mesh smock in the standard sizes. I love the little paint smudges you can have on your face, in RL, I would totally have paint on my face. Here is the Direct TP to the Radio Grind Cart. I will put a picture of the Cart itself at the end of this post so you can check out the other fun offerings they have.

The next piece to my puzzle was a new skin, and with it being the start of another month, new, free group gifts abound! I went with the lovely Gardenia skin from WoW Skins, which is the new September group gift. You get this skin in every tone, with cleavage and noncleavage versions of each. I happen to be wearing tan, without cleavage. For a one time fee of L$350, you can join their group and grab up this beauty, not to mention a box of past group gifts sitting right beside the new one, as well as have access to group only midnight manias, and lucky letter boards. Don’t you just love the pretty pale pink of the lips? This is a very natural look, which I really gravitate towards.

My final piece, is the fun hair I have on. It is another free group gift, this time from Elikatira. The Lena hair, with the exclusives texture hud that you won’t be able to buy, was sent out to group members on the 1st. It is unrigged mesh, so you can adjust it to fit practically any size head. The group is L$250 to join, but as that is the price of one pack of hair, it pays for itself immediately! I love a great short hairstyle. You may see this on me quite often :)

See, I was able to get creative, albeit a little messy, paint some cats, and show off some wonderful stuff for all you fabulous readers! Yup, made me feel much, much better. OK, I am off for now, but you know I will be back. Until next time, TTFN *waves*

Your Friday Hunt Report

Fi_s_Hunts_-_African_Summer_Hunt_-_POSTER_IMAGEGood morning Fabulous Friends! August is drawing to a close and a bunch of hunts will be taking their final bows this weekend, so if you have been procrastinating, it’s time to get MOVING. All that free (or nearly free) stuff is laying around just waiting for you to come by and pick it up, but time grows short.

There will, of course, be some shiny new hunts to partake of starting on Tuesday, September 1st, but I’ll get in to telling you about those when the time comes.

I hope that all of you are enjoying the hunts. Myself… I need to get out on more of them too… or at least start unpacking all the boxes from the last few hunts, which is almost as fun as Christmas morning!

New to hunting? Both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.

Back In Black!

82615 post

Here I am again, fresh from a one-week vacation. I am sporting the official color of men’s clothing on Second Life, so you know I am bringing my “A” game. “Blog or die!” that’s my motto. I would have it tattooed on my arm, but if I did, somewhere out there is a person with a name like Alfred J. Blog who would do something publicly embarrassing. Then I would have to pay again to get the tat removed. I blog hard, but I am also very practical. Oh, and cheap, too.

First up on my list of fantastic finds is this jacket from REDPANDA. The Leather Jacket With Shirt is currently offered as a very generous FREE group gift. It is a one piece mesh combo of the jacket and the simple T-shirt, a classic look for a male avy if there ever was one. My favorite color to wear it in is black, of course. However, REDPANDA includes a hud that gives you five additional color choices, along with an additional eight colors for the T-shirt. You can also forgo the Tee entirely by choosing “No Shirt” on the hud. Four sizes and a clearly-grained leather texture with excellent details, such as visible stitching and metallic zipper teeth, make this a FREE group gift worth picking up!

So, newly back from the glorious sunshine, I figured it was time for me to go wild, and what better item to go wild in than these pants from Deadly Mouse? Their 1L Fashion Play Hunt For Him gift is a great outfit called Over Limit. It includes these crazy pants, subdued in color while the pattern is bursting with energy and life! They come in five sizes. Plus, this hunt gift also includes a great mesh hoodie in slate blue with excellent folds making it look very soft. Honestly if you like realistic looking clothes, and you want a solid blue hoodie, you are going to love the one that is in this box! I am going to give you a hint to help you find the hunt prize, which I rarely do, because I really want as many of you as possible to find this: “This hunt object is so small, it might drive you INSANE!” The hunt object is a small blue and black rectangle, and it’s easy. I promise.

I don’t wear jewelry often, so when I find something I have to like it immensely in order to consider posting it. Such is the case for the necklace I am wearing today. The Trophy Necklace from IT! (Indulge Temptation!) definitely fulfills that criterion and more. The Trophy Necklace comes with a hud giving you seven choices for the colors of the beads and it is materials enabled. This 1L Fashion Play Hunt For Him gift is the perfect accessory for the “Wild thing” mood I am in today! Pick this up to go with some casual and beachwear outfits. It’s a great find.

I am wearing another fantastic FREE skin gift from the Midnight Mania Board at Tellaq. I have mentioned them before since they are one of the best sources for men’s skins on the grid (also one of the most generous). Join the FREE group at the front of the main store and run to the back of the store to tap that MM board. Where else can you get a skin this good, and in sixteen facial hair variations with bonus goodies thrown in FOR FREE? Seriously, if you are a guy on SL, make this a regular stop, and ladies, please give it a tap now and then to help us guys out. The target is high, usually requiring 500 slaps, but the board does close regularly and the gifts are outstanding.

While you are checking out that close up of the devilishly handsome guy in the picture above, take a good look at his eyes. These are the current FREE Group Gift eyes from IKON, one of my favorite eye merchants on the grid. Just yesterday Love posted them here, but they look just as great on male avies too. These IKON Unisex Triumph Eyes in Armor have a combination of brown and tan tones in them and if you click my pic twice, you should be able to zoom in to see them in spectacular detail. The IKON group is FREE to join and I heartily encourage you to do so.

Lastly, for what seems to be a week jam-packed with great gifts and prizes to grab, Alli&Ali Designs are participating in the Fashion Play For Him Hunt as well. Their FREE gift is the stylish Roman Hair that I am wearing. It is offered in eleven colors and has an option for streaks in the hair to make it more versatile. Depending on your skin, you might want to find a hairbase from your inventory to wear with it to give it a more finished look like I did. The box does not include one, and it is not required as it looks great without one.

That’s it for this marathon post! You can tell I missed all of you since I had this many items saved up to share. We are nearing the end of the month, so if you see something you might want, go get it as soon as possible. The Fashion Play For Men Hunt ends August 31st. Until next time everyone, take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

FDD At The Fantasy Gacha

fdd

The Fantasy Gacha just opened up for another fresh round of goodies and I was tickled because I love to play dress-up!  I made my way down there last night to check it out and while it was a little tough to finally TP into, I managed after a handful of tries and fought my way through the crowd to play the heck out of the FDD Stories Trissa Machine!

This set is fitted mesh and is compatible with Maitreya, Slink and the system body.  The rare and ultra rares come with texture change huds so you can mix and match these items up for different looks with the 8 common pant options and 4 common gloves.  It really didn’t hurt a bit to pay the 75L per play, because I feel like a million bucks!

Clothes That Don’t Wear Out And Great Places To Wear Them!

8415 ab2_001

Hello, everyone! This week, I am sharing something a bit special with you; and it has to do with the very spot where I am standing. But first, let’s talk about something FREE and fantastic! Every month, I swing by the American Bazaar store to pick up their FREE group gift. This month they have offered the James Jacket in Electric Blue along with the James Shirt in Black. Each piece comes in five sizes for versatility, but they are meant to be worn together so there is a single alpha accommodating both the jacket and shirt. The color is dark and dramatic, just like me! When I dress for my own pleasure, this is absolutely the kind of item I am drawn to: dressy, yet still very casual and comfortable looking. American Bazaar did a great job with this garment. Plus, the group is FREE to join, so make sure you run out and pick this up.

All of us have very different reasons to be on SL, and what we choose to do here can be vastly different from avy to avy. I am an avid freebie hunter, blogger, and general goof off, but Second Life offers us many different activities to do and enjoy. One that I personally like to do is go to concerts and listen to live performers like my friends Phideaux Mayo and Maximillion Kleene. I truly admire the talent and courage it takes to get up in front of people and perform. When you are looking for an interesting activity, I encourage you to search in “events” and sample some of the live entertainment SL has to offer, which brings me to where I am now standing. This is the ENT SL RADIO TRANSPORT HUB and is an excellent place to pop by when you are looking for entertainment. ENT SL Radio is kind of like RL public broadcasting: it offers eighty hours of FREE programming a week! You can even listen to it outside of Second Life by visiting their web site. At the hub, you will find many kiosks, each if which represents a club that is partnering with ENT to help broadcast and promote live music to the SL community. Walk around and check out the schedules. You can even teleport directly to your club of choice from the bus stop. It is a fun and FREE way to explore music and clubs that you might not have experienced yet. I highly recommend you add it to your list of places to check out.

Now that you have a great place to go, to choose whichever live performer you may fancy, how about something else you could wear? It is my pleasure to let you know about another item from Madcat Creations that is definitely worthy of your attention. Madcat Creations got my attention in late April by making an amazing hippie outfit that I blogged here. Now they are offering a 1L hunt prize from the Romance Under The Stars Hunt, the Leather N Lace in Red Dress Shirt and Jacket combo looks great with its vibrant color, in addition to giving me my recommended daily dose of black clothing. Together with the white tee part of this garment, the three components in the mesh look extremely well layered giving the appearance of being separate items. This is a fantastic piece of mesh! It comes in three sizes, each of them being similar to fitmesh in that they will conform to your avy. I got an excellent fit without any fuss at all. The red is quite eye catching. After all, do you really want to spend your time blending into the background? Reach for some color now and then and spice up your Second Life, and this garment is an excellent start.

That is all for now. I am going to wander about and find a good concert to check out. However you choose to spend your Second Life, I wish you the best and look forward to running into you one day. Until then, have fun and see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler

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 :)
