Art in the Afternoon

Art Gallery

So I took myself out and went exploring this afternoon. It was nice to spend the time and take a look around. I ended up on this beautiful sim with a beach-side art gallery for an artist named Marisa Falbo. Not only is the setting beautiful and serene, so is the art. In addition to the gorgeous atmosphere, you can pick up a sample of Marisa Falbo’s amazing artwork for FREE! There’s a big gift box as you enter the gallery that anyone can purchase for 0 linden. Her other works are for purchase also, so take the time to stop by the gallery, explore the sim, and maybe pick up some art. It’s well worth the visit.

Of course such an occasion needed a great outfit. After all, the person I want to look good for the most is myself. Lucky me, I found this great tube-top and skirt combo by N-Uno on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. This “Summer Day” set is a wearable demo, it’s fully mesh, and includes matching alpha layers. I think it’s cute, feminine, and flirty. It’s the sort of outfit I want to feel confident enough to wear in real life! hahaha Not only did I feel pretty in my new outfit, it presented the perfect opportunity to show off my newest tattoo.

I love this pretty chest tattoo from La Malvada Mujer. The tattoo is a current FREE group gift at La Malvada Mujer, and the group is FREE to join. This lovely tattoo comes in regular system layers, and includes appliers for TMP, Slink, and Omega, each with a fresh and two faded options. I think the flowers at the shoulders are very pretty, and the idea of an envelope is kinda sweet and romantic.

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!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL welcometosummeradjpgI do believe summer is here. It’s hot hot HOT… 103F forecast for my neck of the woods today. So yes, summer is here. It’s a good time to stay inside with the air conditioning, a cold drink, and your computer screen. In other words, a good time to do some hunting.

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.

Both FabFree and HUNT SL have excellent pages if you want to get started with hunting. So read up before you exit through your front door.

So check out the list for the hunt that’s just right for you. Point and click the names for more info on each hunt.

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!

The Heat Wave Event: Ruckus

whc ruckus 2

 The Heat Wave Event at The Wash Sim is heating up now, come on out and catch some rays.

It’s a red hot summer and these board shorts from Ruckus are a fantastic reminder to get your summer attitude and head for the shore. They come in three colors and they are only 10L each right now at The Heat Wave Event. This is great beachwear and a perfect reminder that summer is the time for hanging loose. Catch some waves or just catch some rays but don’t let summer get away without a little Ruckus in your life. —–WHC Riler

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!

When The Judge Is Away…Rawr!

whc menstuff sfd 1

Not many people know that I am a lawyer. Luckily, even fewer people know I am NOT a lawyer! That’s how I got chosen for my own layout in “Hot Lawyers Monthly”! Okay, so maybe I feel a little bad about letting them think I am an attorney, but let’s face it: if they were real lawyers, they would be able to tell that I wasn’t one. So, I am taking my modeling fee all the way to the bank… or McDonald’s if there is a line at the bank. I hate lines.

On the First of June, one of the best male hunts of the year began. The Menstuff Hunt features a one-hundred-store lineup and is on all month long. If you are new to doing store hunts, now is the perfect time to give them a try. I can think of a hundred reasons why you should. The hunt is not free. It is technically a 1L hunt, but the organizers allowed stores the option of not charging for their prizes and more than 2/3 of them are FREE! You are looking for an object shaped like a blue T-Shirt, inside of which your prizes await.

For my hot magazine layout, I wore the Menstuff Hunt Prize from SF Design, the Finsbury Outfit. This one-piece Mesh outfit features the shirt, dress pants and suspenders all together in one garment. It really makes looking good very easy when all the pieces are integrated into one item. It makes dressing a snap! You would think that with those items all put together in one prize, the designer might make compromises along the way, but not SF Design. The shirt is well textured and has realistic buttons. The suspenders seem to be in front of the shirt not painted on it. Last but not least, the pants have a classy pinstripe texture. Quality and convenience, it’s all there. Oh, and one last thing… it’s FREE!

I wanted a little something extra to help sell the “I know about law stuff” look I was going for and the Menstuff hunt prize from X-Sight was just what I needed. The X-Sight Geek Glasses in Charcoal lend an air of studiousness that normally can only be acquired by, well… studying. Trust me, finding a hunt object in a store is a lot easier than actually studying. They make a fine accessory to complete a variety of outfits and are also generously offered to us for FREE.

One of my favorite stores on the grid is Illi. When I heard they were participating in the Menstuff Hunt, I knew that was going to be one of the highlights of the hunt. They did not disappoint me. Their Menstuff Hunt 2015 outfit makes for fantastic beachwear. The Mesh tank top is a style I have never seen before. It hangs loosely and has front pockets like some hoodies I own. It makes for a very interesting variation of a tank top that looks great! The shorts are nicely shaped and highly detailed, right down to the plaid cuffs which are actually held up by a strap and a button. I don’t know how often that kind of detail appears in board shorts, but I can tell you it surprised me when I noticed it. The final part of the outfit are the sandals. The ones I am wearing are the classic ones and fit regular avy feet. If you are lucky enough to have Slink feet, The Mesh Project or Aesthetic bodies though, Illi has included versions of them for you in this hunt prize, too! It is an excellent gift and another wonderful FREE gift on the Menstuff hunt.

Male avies always have a problem finding inexpensive hair, and I was very pleased to see that Jaryth’s Barber Shop has a very cool hair on the Menstuff hunt. It is the David Mesh Hair and comes with a hud which gives you a choice of five shades of brown. The sides of the head are cut very short and handled with a hairbase. The top is grown out longer and looks just spiky enough to give it a cool, rebellious look. Cool men’s hair is a tough find and this one is FREE so it’s definitely worth grabbing.

My tattoo is also from the Menstuff hunt. It is the bio mech tattoo from B*FLY Tattoos. It comes in normal and faded ink variations and also has an applier in the gift (if you happen to have a body from The Mesh Project). The design is reminiscent of the kind of artwork H.R. Giger became world renowned for: featuring patterns of what could be bone, muscle and tendons in a beautiful, surrealistic way. I love this style of art and this FREE tat definitely has found a home in my inventory.

The final item on this my first post covering the Menstuff hunt 2015 is the Moonwake necklace from Rebellion. This silver chain is very well detailed, giving it a highly realistic look. The design is definitely masculine, and would look especially great with a street thug kind of look. It is not free, but for only 1L, I absolutely recommend picking it up. Well, that’s it everyone, I am gonna settle in for a nice nap on the beach and dream about all the other items I will find on the Menstuff hunt this year. Until next time, see you on the grid! —–WHC Riler
