Bringing Sexy Back

Snapshot_002

Hi there FabFree!  You might be wondering why I am thoughtfully gazing out the window as if to be longing for someone who has gone away…

Fear not!  For I have only strategically placed myself to show off the sexy ribbon tied back of this blouse made by The Bubblegum Tree!  You can actually find the entire outfit including the mesh black pants and blouse for just 10L in The Bubble Gum Tree Marketplace Store.  There is no longing or gazing going on over here!

I have linked you directly to the brown lace version that I am wearing, but there are several prints/colours available at the same low price so check out the whole store :)

Menstuff Ahoy!

whc LKD pirate 1 a

whc LKD pirate1 b

Ahoy Matees! ARGGH…cough, cough, cough. Okay, That’s about the extent of my pirate role-play. It’s the “Argghs” that kill me. It’s hard to sound sexy when you start coughing and flailing your arms wildly in international amateur sign language for “I am ok, don’t call an ambulance”. That can kind of take the sexy out of things.

Luckily, the clothes can bring the sexy back and that’s what I like most about the outfit I’m wearing from Lo Kajirus Designs. The “Like A Pirate Mesh Slave Outfit” Menstuff Hunt gift comes role-play ready for daring adventurers, club hoppers and cabin boys across the grid. It is a highly unique outfit and consists of Mesh pantaloons, jewelry, Mesh eye-patches, a collar (both scripted and non-scripted) and a colorful belt sash. The pantaloons come in five sizes for a good fit, and the accessories are fun and quite attractive. Overall, the quality of the outfit is impressive and for only 1L, it’s a bargain. It doesn’t matter if your pirate vessel is a schooner or a shopping cart, it’s the clothes that make the man O’war! Aye, prepare to be boarded!

Seven Deadly s{K}ins is offering the Menstuff Hunt Bowie Skin in both taupe and walnut tones with and without hairbases as their free hunt prize. Heavily freckled and with super realistic facial hair, they are considerably handsome skins. I was quite impressed with the quality as well as the fact that 7DS also includes appliers if you are lucky enough to have slink hands and feet. The Bowie skin is definitely an excellent pick up for those of us looking for an quality skin upgrade for free!

whc piratecart FE Style 2_001

As I sailed through the calm seas of the Menstuff Hunt, I encountered this wonderful Jacket and Shirt Combo from FE Style. The Wekleh Jacket w/T-Shirt is a one piece mesh evocative of maritime clothes in an entirely different way. The simple, understated styling gives a classic masculine look for any male avi. Offered in four sizes, one of which is Fitmesh, a fine fit without any fuss will be easy to accomplish. Perfect for the dock or the deck, this 1L hunt prize is certainly a first-class item to grab.

The Menstuff Hunt is a 1L hunt but only 31 stores elected to charge for their gifts. The hunt object you are looking for is a blue T-Shirt and can be small, so follow any hints that have been posted on the Menstuff Hunt page. You will not find a better run Men’s hunt on Second Life. So ends this chapter in my Menstuff voyage for now, take care everyone and a quick reminder that Valentine’s Day approaches. Enjoy SL and I will see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Looming Moon

Snapshot_004Hi there Fabulous readers!  I have put together another super affordable and mostly free outfit today that I hope you like…  At least like enough to go and pick up some of the pieces that suit your personal style.  I’m going to start with news about the hair, because free hair always seems to be a big hit here at FabFree lol.

You can find the Keene hairstyle that I am wearing today as a free midnight mania board prize at Moon.  This style comes in their essentials pack so it includes a ton of shades from different colour packs, making it a good find no matter what your box number is.  This is the non-group board, so you don’t even need to be in the group to participate – just show up early enough in the day to get in on it before it locks down!

The Jana Skinny Jeans are a new free gift at LOOM that you can pick up after you activate your free inworld group tag.  Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, Fitmesh, and standard mesh sizing are included.

My Ginny Sweater (3L) and Salome Flats (1L) are available as wearable dollarbie demos in the Orange*Pekoe marketplace store.  There is no mention of demo on these items, they are just in the orange*pekoe colours as shown :).

ps. TIP:  I wore the Maitreya version of the Jana Skinny Jeans with the standard mesh size Ginny Sweater, but unfortunately the jeans went through the sweater in a bad way.  I solved this problem by adjusting my shape butt size and saddle bag sliders down until the jeans no longer poked through the sweater.  Make sure you save as…  (something else), not just save or you will have altered your orginal shape.  I use this trick a lot, and I thought someone else might appreciate the idea!

Casual Friday on Monday

Snapshot_001Good evening Fabulouses! Before I head offline for the night, I have a couple of group offers to share with you, and a sweet deal too.

My Teya Jeans and Sweater which are made by Evani, can be found at this round of The Dressing Room for 70L each in a variety of colours.  The knit texturing on the sweater is fantastic and the ripped knees in the jeans are super cool because they come with a texture change hud that allows you to match up your knees with the rest of your body.

N-Core put out these sexy little ankle boots today as a free group gift for their inworld VIPs (50L to join)!  These boots are compatible with Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP and N-Core feet.
Snapshot_002Make sure to swing by Besom and join their free inworld group so that you can give their group midnight mania board a slap.  This Hannu hairstyle is available as a free MM Board prize for group members only in a whole fatpack of colours.  The goal is 360 slaps, which is pretty high – but if we allllll  slap that darn board we’ll lock it down!

An Avalanche Of Menstuff Begins!

whc winter rispetto 01

Greetings from the Arctic Circle! Well actually it’s the East Coast of the United States, but this weekend you can’t tell the difference. We are getting slammed with the white, fluffy stuff as I write this; and with some luck, I just might have electricity on long enough to get this posted!

Menstuff is, in my opinion, the best male hunt of the year. It is a 1L hunt, although some stores have opted to set their prizes out for free! The hunt object to look for is a dark blue T-Shirt shaped object. While they can be small, they are usually not hard to find.

The fantastic Trent Mesh Sweater in Charcoal from Rispetto Designs is where we begin the Menstuff coverage. This sweater has a heavy wool texture to help you look toasty, and the styling is simple and masculine. Click the above picture twice and get a good look at the texture. It’s marvelous! It is offered in five sizes for an easy fit. I found the Mesh looked flawless on me. Also, Rispetto Designs includes the Logoro Mesh Jeans in Blue/Grey in the Menstuff Hunt prize which are excellent and would be a solid garment to have building a casual wardrobe. They are realistically textured and come in five sizes also for a good fit. This is a prize that should not be ignored, especially if you are a new resident to second life! Items like these will have you looking great in no time and for only 1L!

whc winter hana 01

As I said, I have been hit in real life with one heck of a snowstorm! It is extremely cold here, so when I saw the 1L Open Cardigan W/Shirt Menstuff Hunt prize from Hanauma Bay Clothiers, I had to smile. Not only is it super good looking and well made, but it is a mesh piece layering two sweaters! This is a beautiful one-piece Mesh featuring a cardigan style sweater over a pull-over styled one. Offered in five sizes, two of which are fitmesh, it will fit your avy quite nicely. Take it from me, the man wearing his entire real life wardrobe as he shovels the driveway, two sweaters are way better than one! Reminds me of the time I was driving down Lee Highway and a police car came up next to me. I heard the cop’s voice say, “Pull over!” I was so happy, I turned so he could see better and said “And a cardigan too! Hi-5!” It is always nice when someone notices a great looking garment on you.

I debated whether to include the free Beautiful Dangerous Menstuff hunt prize, the Danny Sweater in Paynes Gray in this post or not. Truthfully, were I not racing a certain power outage, I would hold it for another entry. Why? There certainly isn’t anything wrong with the quality or the styling of this great sweater. No, it is simply that I felt the picture does not show it off as well as I would have liked. This is a beautiful sweater, masculine and simply styled to go with almost anything. It appears to be made of lighter material than the heavier texture of the Rispetto sweater, making it perfect when the weather is a bit on the cool side rather than a snowy landscape in the above picture. This is a sipping-brandy-by-the-fire kind of sweater and, as such, is very well executed. It is offered in five sizes for a good fit, and is a welcome addition to my wardrobe. The Menstuff Hunt is a 1L hunt but Beautiful Dangerous has put their hunt item out for free!

All these sweaters would be excellent pick ups and very solid parts of a male avy’s wardrobe. Menstuff has been an excellent hunt for me so far, ranking as the very best in terms of ratio of items kept, versus items deleted. It truly is time to start doing hunts and snapping up some quality goodies! I just noticed that the sound of my teeth chattering reminds me of the old manual typewriter I used to have long ago. Oh the memories! For now I am off to shovel snow and chase any stray penguins out of my yard. Take care, and I’ll see you on the grid (as long as the power stays on)!—–WHC Riler

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Black_or_White_Hunt_2_-_POSTER_IMAGEIt’s Friday, and that means we have another fun weekend of hunting ahead of us. There are some very nice hunts going on right now. Just check the list (below) and see for  yourself.

In case you haven’t heard, hunting is a fun and rewarding “sport.” Merchants hide gifts in their stores just because they want you to visit. All you have to do is follow hints to find them. You’ll come away with all kinds of free stuff (or nearly free… some hunts charge a L$ or two for each hunt item). Your inventory will soon be stuffed full of clothing, shoes, accessories, furniture, etc.

If you’re 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.

So what are you waiting for? Let’s go  hunting!

What Were You Doing in 2002?

Snapshot_007I’m back with another dollarbie from the Orange*Pekoe marketplace store!  This time I am wearing the Brighton Bay 2002 Set that includes the mesh shorts, waist sweater and the layered top that can be worn with or without sleeves.  This set is available as a wearable demo (it doesn’t say demo anywhere!), priced at just 3L for the whole  thing.  Be sure to check out the rest of the offerings – there are tons of steals!

ps.  What were you doing in the summer of 2002?  I am pretty sure the highlight of that summer for me was a trip to the beach.

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Hunt For Your Inner Slut 13Good morning fabulous friends! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, January 19.

The top hunt today is the thirteenth edition of Hunt for Your Inner Slut and this time around it has a Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy theme. I’m not sure what that means in terms of sluts but I’m interested to find out!

The Black or White Hunt is back again in the number two spot and the Menstuff Hunt is at number three. Both of these are great hunts. There are plenty of other hunts to check out too. So let’s all go hunting!

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!
