Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL here-comes-summer-full-perm-hunt-posterHappy Friday my Fabulous Friends! Summer will be officially here on Sunday… summer solstice… the longest day of the year. Well, for those of us in the northern hemisphere anyway. If you live down under, then it’s mid winter. But that’s neither here nor there. There are a bunch of great hunts going on anyway, and many of them have a summer theme… or at least make a nod in that direction.

We’re starting to see more full-perm hunts, which is great if you’re a builder or a content creator. Check out the Here Comes Summer or the Keep Calm & BBQ Full Perm hunts if you like full-perm stuff.

Both FabFree and HUNT SL have excellent pages if you want to get started with hunting if you haven’t been before, and some great tips even if you’re a veteran hunter.

Check out all these hunts and find the one that’s right for you. Poking the names will lead you to more information.

See you out on the hunt!

Staying Cool With Menstuff!

whc gabriel ms 061615

Happy Wednesday everyone! This June has been fantastic for male freebie and cheapie-hunters! This week, I bring you more items from the Menstuff Hunt, a one hundred store hunt that runs until the end of June. Hunt prizes are at most 1L, but the majority of them are offered for FREE! There is no reason not to roll your sleeves up and get hunting, the prizes are too good to pass up!

Gabriel, a store with a reputation for generous FREE group gifts, created this beautiful floral print shirt for the Menstuff Hunt. The Mesh Gradation Flower shirt comes in two colors: blue and black. The floral pattern appears in the bottom quarter of the shirt and sleeves for a subtle, summery look without making the shirt look feminine. The lighter color in the upper part of the shirt draws the eye to the chest area where the shirt is unbuttoned and open. This shirt will give you a cool, stylish, laid back look in whichever color you choose to wear. Gabriel’s FREE Menstuff Hunt gift is a great choice to wear around the grid this summer.

To complement the shirt, I chose the Men’s Mesh Kanto Chino Jeans from Hawker’s House. Sporting extremely well-done shading and texturing, these gray jeans look realistic and provide a very manly look, if you know what I mean. There is no reason we should go around looking like Ken dolls, so it’s always nice to see a little shading to give us guys a little added dimension. Hawker’s House’s hunt prize for the Menstuff Hunt is one of the most generous gifts in the entire hunt. For 1L, you get these swell mesh jeans, the blue denim boots I am wearing and a red nyc T-Shirt (not pictured). The Men’s Mesh Doc Martin Style Boots in Denim are very nicely textured and likely to stand out more than simple black or brown leather Doc Martin style boots. There is something you should be aware of when you get this excellent hunt gift. I have noticed from personal experience that automatic unpacking scripts occasionally don’t transfer the alpha to inventory along with the other items (if the alpha is no copy). In order to unpack this gift, I strongly recommend rezzing the box on the ground and manually unpacking it instead of clicking the box as instructed. This way, you will have everything you need to enjoy these fantastic boots. Quality, inexpensive footwear for men is not an easy find on Second Life, and for only 1L these boots from Hawker’s House are of high enough quality to deserve a very close look! Plus, you get the Kanto Chino Jeans as well!

My necklace is part of the Menstuff Hunt prize from Timeless Designs. The Rebel Black Agate Rope Necklace and Bracelet are both included in the Menstuff Hunt gift. I really liked the simple, masculine look of these pieces. If you look closely, you can see the braiding of the rope and the designs on the gray beads. Great care and time was obviously invested in creating these products. This hunt gift will only set you back 1L, and Timeless Designs made sure it was money well spent. I know I will enjoy it and hope that some of you will as well.

When I first saw this T-Shirt, I knew I had to blog it. The Fetthunterblack T-Shirt from Fliped Out Designs is a great item for the Sci-fi geek nestled inside all of us. Inspired by the universe’s favorite bounty hunter, the T-Shirt is designed with a large playing card like image with the word “Hunter” in the middle of it. At least I hope it is playing card like. If it was a tarot card I would be packing my bags right now instead of writing this. No reason to take any chances concerning my own fate. This unique graphic tee is the FREE Menstuff Hunt Gift from Fliped Out Designs and is available like the rest of the hunt prizes until the end of June.

These black boots were a super find over at The Grey Goose. The Black A** Kickers turned out to be just what I needed to complete this outfit. They have a detailed leather texture and silver metal fasteners, one zipper and three skull buckles. Originally, I had mixed feelings about highlighting them because they are not resizable at least by any method I am aware of. On the shapes I regularly use, the fit was imperfect. Of course, in these days of mesh, it is not unusual to have to adjust your shape to wear something. So, that was not enough reason to discard a perfectly nice pair of FREE black leather boots, especially considering you can pick them up and make your own decisions. Personally, I kept them! ;-)

Some readers might have noticed I am wearing a different skin than usual. STALKERS! The Menstuff Hunt skin from Seven Deadly Skins is very nice, easily passing my very picky standards, and absolutely no surprise to me. Although it is good enough for any male avy to wear, it is an incredible pick up for any new residents or alts out there. There is no reason to look new when you can find a skin this nice for FREE! Thank you for such a nice hunt gift.

Lastly, I want to point out one item that is NOT part of the Menstuff Hunt. Rather, it is an entirely FREE gift for a limited time from Poetic Colors. The Summer Sky Eyes – Beach Nighteyes are a beautiful blue with some pink and lavender mixed in. Click on my pictures above to get into my flickr, then click once more to magnify the image for an up-close look at these eyes. They are only available for a limited time, so if you like them, run over and pick these up as soon as you can.

That’s it for this week. Although I have highlighted over twenty items from the Menstuff Hunt this month, there are one hundred stores participating. So, try as I might, I have only scratched the surface of this wonderful hunt. I want to take a moment to remind everyone that the For Him Hunt is still going on, but ends on the nineteenth of this month. So, if you want to pick up a really sexy workout outfit blogged here, this is your last chance. Until next time my friends, take care and see you on the grid. —–WHC Riler

American Pie

American Pie

This sassy cute t-shirt is a current FREE group gift at Lemonicity, and I really can’t argue with such a sound statement! hahaha Okay okay I might be a tad biased, but I still think this tee is really fun. The shirt reads “American Girls Sweet as Cherry Pie”, and I like the pie graphic a lot. The top is fully mesh and comes in various sizes, with the graphic on the front and the back of the shirt. This shirt would be great for a 4th of July gathering in just a few weeks. The Lemonicity group is FREE to join, so don’t miss this cute gift!

In addition to this great shirt, I am excited to be showing you the latest FREE group gift from Essences. I always enjoy skins from Essences, and this one has some really great features. I’m kinda partial to the dark lips and heavy brows of this “Kendra” skin. There  is no need to join an in-world group to get this awesome gift, just head over to Essences, join the subscribo (if you haven’t already) and click the gift vendor right next to the subscribo. The skin comes in the Medium01 tone with various brow options. **Appliers sold separately.

There are plenty of hunts to go on too, and lots of themes. Steampunk… check. Beaches… check. Pajamas… check… and lot’s more to choose from.

Looking pretty while on the move, with RD Style and Lumae.

Hello again :) It’s Thursday already, and it’s been a busy week for me here in SL. I just finished moving into a new place, my own little abandoned church in a field. Lucky for me, I put together the perfect moving ‘look’ thanks to RD Style and Lumae. Wait, you didn’t know that you could move house AND still look pretty? Well, that’s the beauty of SL! Let me show you…

rdlumae2

OK, so honestly, I had 3 moving day outfits. Yes…3, hey, don’t judge ;P hehe. You see, I was going through LM’s that I have, picking random ones to use, and I happened to land at RD Style, and they had just put out 2 new group gifts. The Nya #I in white, and Nya #II in black, both come with colour coordinated SLink flat feet sandals, and these dresses are just too darn cute. I love the candy pattern on the white dress especially. I just could not pass them up. They are free for group members, and it is L$100 to join, but you gain access to loads more past group gifts once you join, so it is well worth it.

rdlumae1

The other fun outfit I have on, is also RD Style. After I finished grabbing the group gifts, I noticed a sign saying L$25 deals. Naturally, I had to go look. In a room to the left of the entrance, you will find all sorts of great deals on past releases, with a nice selection of them being only L$25! Like the group gifts, and most outfits from RD Style, it is a whole package, shoes included. I picked out the Kawaii #II outfit because of the bright colours and fun print of the over-shirt and boots. This is the perfect outfit for moving…don’t you think?

rdlumae4

Last, but certainly not least…how pretty is this skin I am wearing? Lumae‘s most recent Lazy Sunday offering is the gorgeous Adore skin in Nightshade makeup. I am so in love with the purple eyeshadow! At only L$75 each, all tones are available, and each one comes with a plethora of appliers, pretty much any applier you can think of. As with all of Lumae‘s Lazy Sunday buys, she leaves them out for the full week, so you have until June 14th to grab Adore.

Moving is tiring work…and looking good while doing it…even harder, LOL! If only it were this easy to move in RL. Alright all you fabbie readers, I am all done for today. I think it’s time to pull out a chair and enjoy my new place. Until next Thursday, TTFN *waves*.

Side note : You are not seeing things…I am in fact, eyebrow-less in my outfit shots :P I corrected it in my close-up though! This is going to keep me chuckling for a while.

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Explore ValyniaGood morning fabulous friends! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Wednesday, June 10.

Summer is the prevalent hunt theme right now. Go figure. You can partake of a bunch of different summer themed hunts, so grab your swimsuit, beach towel, and flip-flops and get some hot weather hunting done.

The Explore Valyria Hunt is the top hunt this week. It’s a sim hunt, but what a bunch of great stores in this sim…Etchaflesh, 7 Deadly Skins, KlubWerk, and Room69! Lots of great prizes to find in this one.

If you’re a her, then the For Her Hunt has been built for you. It’s a L$1 hunt with 22 stops. So a couple hours of hunting will get you all kinds of clothing, shoes, and jewelry. I browsed through the prize pics on the hunt web site and there’s some pretty nice stuff in this one. Too bad I’m a him.

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!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL menstuffLogo-512It’s always fun when somebody tells you how much they love what you do. I was setting up our build for the SL12B Community Celebration and the area assistant who was helping me with the parcel details saw the exhibits and said “oh… I love hunts! Do you have a group?” It’s warm fuzzies like that which make my day.

There are some dang good hunts going on right now. The June hunts are in full swing. I have to get it in gear and do the Menstuff Hunt. It’s one of my favorites from previous years and the source of about half my wardrobe. No joke!

Both FabFree and HUNT SL have excellent pages if you want to get started with hunting. It’s really pretty easy. If you can walk, cam, and solve clues at the same time, you’ll be a natural. No really… it’s not that hard.

So click the names of the hunts that look interesting to you. You’ll be whisked off to more info.

See you out on the hunt!

Each of the two skins, Jewel and Adore are available in Tone 5, and come with every available applier, as well as brow, cleavage and freckle options. The best part, not only are Jewel and Adore full skins with all the options and appliers, they are just 10 lindens each at the Lumae Cart!
