Much ♥’s

Hello again, my Dear FabFree Folks! I have returned from the Highlands! I told you, y’all couldn’t get rid of me that easily.  So while shuffling through vacation snaps and doing loads of laundry I knew I had to make time to jump back in world and visit the We ♥ Role Play May event.

WLRP_001

This round of We ♥ Role Play, is the Second Anniversary of the shopping event and tons of the designers have set out free and almost free ‘Happy Birthday’ gifts. Plus, many designers have out special items for 10L or less. First up is the Reverie Ring from Empyrean Forge. The gold ring comes with a HUD to change the center stone with six colors to choose from.

Next up is the Tinuviel Crown from Evie’s Closet. I love the delicate leaves and pearls on this crown. The gift includes a matching collar with the same ethereal build.

Last but not least is another sweet little ring from Fawny. The Sweet Rose ring in gold is another delicate piece and I love the simple style.

From Farmboy To Pop Icon!

WHC Farmboy 1

Greetings from the Riler family farm, where we grow all kinds of healthy food that I won’t eat. I remember once when I was a young pup and Mom asked me “Why won’t you eat fruits and vegetables? There has to be something that we can grow that you’ll eat.” Mom stared at me in complete exasperation. That was the day I learned parrots do not grow on trees. Also, I am told if they did, parrot trees would not grow in the Midwest. I have learned a lot about farming since then, most of it from countless hours of playing FarmVille on Facebook.

The most important lesson I learned about farming is: Do not dress like you have just fallen off the turnip truck. (Wait, if you actually did just fall off the turnip truck, you probably are a farmer anyway, so dressing like that is good, too.) My point is, you are going to want to dress the part and the FREE Gingham Hunt Prize from Firelight Creations/MAN STUFF is perfect for that handsome farmhand look. The prize consists of the Leroy mesh shirt in red gingham and the Cole jeans in light blue denim. The shirt is very nicely shaped and, together with the mesh Cole jeans, which I also consider a keeper, this is a very masculine look. MAN STUFF is the division of Firelight Creations we have to thank for this FREE hunt gift, but included in the same box is a matching women’s outfit from Firelight Creations. This hunt prize would be a very good start for a “Country” kind of outfit for club events and sims, in addition to being nice enough for your regular wardrobe. I may not be the kind of guy suited for farm work, but in this outfit, I could do commercials for brand name soda pop on TV. I could easily imagine myself drinking an ice cold can of pop, condensation dripping down my muscular chest, as my female co-workers in the office break room gawk in silent appreciation. Casual Friday – here I come! Kidding aside, this outfit looks great, and I could seriously sell a ton of pop in this.

whc subway final 1

For a more suburban look, I love this FREE thank you gift from Carami! It is the Trenton Tee and it comes in a set of five solid dark colors, changeable via hud. This is far more than just a basic mesh T-shirt, this FREE Gift is much more generous than that. The Trenton Tee comes in four variations; tucked, untucked, normal bottom untucked, and narrow bottom untucked. With choices like that, getting a great fit and the right look should not be hard at all. One last reason you need to pick up this FREE gift from Carami: It comes with a sixth bonus texture that isn’t on the hud. That bonus texture is the one I am wearing above, a very casual retro looking print T-shirt. Just take care to make a backup copy of the print tee, because once you change it using the hud, it is replaced with the color you have chosen. In short, Carami is giving you a great basic dark T-shirt in five colors and four variations plus a bonus printed T-shirt design! You can’t beat this kind of a thank you gift, thank you very much Carami.

One last thing I need to mention this week, the skin I am wearing is from Seven Deadly Skins. It is the free group gift for May and looks fantastic, I like it so much you will probably be seeing me in it often in the coming weeks. Seven Deadly Skins is a pay group, but the quality of their skins is excellent and the gifts and specials they have make it well worth joining. As of this moment the group is currently on sale for 50L and is a great pick up for both male and female avies. Well, I am all talked out. This blogging is nearly as hard as cartoon farming (but twice as rewarding). Until next time everyone, have fun and see you on the grid. —–WHC Riler

Springing Into May, All Hopped Up On Freebies!

whc kauna jacket 1

May has started out wonderfully for me, and when you get a glance at this freebie, your May will become as great as mine. FaMESHed is a monthly event on SL, and this month was actually the first time I ever attended. Being a guy, shopping events have not been a major focus of mine (until now). I am kicking myself for that though since I laid eyes on this fantastic FREE leather overcoat from Kauna! The Kauna-XIV Leather Overcoat is supplied in both a black and a brown version and is finely textured. In fact, click on the pictures in this post and you can almost feel the leather with your fingertips. Prepare to fall in some serious love with this overcoat. It is given away FREE at FaMESHed to celebrate the third anniversary of the event and to promote Kauna’s excellent line of XIV suits and separates. If you have the money, you might well be compelled to do what I did and splurge on some matching components, like the XIV T-Shirt Pack: Plain & Striped and the XIV Shirt: Coffee pictured above. They are made to fit beautifully with the overcoat and are a very nice luxury if you have the coin.

whc kauna jacket 2

You might ask, “What if you have nothing to spend on Second Life’s great luxuries at the moment?” Well, if that’s the case, then this overcoat is still a must pick up. In addition to the components made to fit especially for this jacket, you can use other items you could already have in your inventory. Being a mesh overcoat, it might be somewhat tricky to find pieces to wear under it. With this stylish garment, I would heartily recommend system (layers) T-shirts, and (if you can find some) system dress shirts with sculpted collars. Both will look great with it. Even if you have to fiddle with the sculpted collars to find one that works well, you are going to look fantastic.

In the picture above, you can see I paired The Kauna-XIV Leather Overcoat with a FREE Group Gift from Gizza; a pink and black shirt that was offered a while back and is still available. I think it looks very nice in this outfit and is a great example of a freebie that works well. Gizza is a great place to pick up a bunch of Free Gifts since they keep their previous FREE Group Gifts out for an extended period. It would be an excellent first stop in a search for items to wear with this stylish overcoat.

Last, but far from least, I am wearing a very special set of eyes. The Mayfly – Luminous – Mesh Eyes in London Fog are a FREE Gift from one of the best eye creators in Second Life. They look fantastic and offer a wide variety of options controlled by a surprisingly robust hud, which allows variations in size, reflections, and shadowing (among other options). I love the way they look! While you are in eye collecting mode – which sounds super creepy now that I say it out loud – keep in mind that Mayfly also has a FREE Gift over at Fab Free Headquarters! The recently updated Mayfly – Deep Sky Eyes in Medium Onyx are gorgeous grey eyes. If you haven’t come by to pick them up yet, rest assured they are completely worth the trip. With all the great freebies and gifts this week, you’ll spring into May in style! From my little pixel heart to all of you, have fun and see you on the grid. —–WHC Riler

As The April Showers Give Way To Flower Power!

whc hippie 1_001

I was a huge fan of Woodstock (I’m pretty sure he was on my first lunch box when I started kindergarten). My memories come flooding back when I think of those times. Of course, I was too young to enjoy the summer of love back then. Sure, I may have gone running off in a field, letting my diaper fall to the warm earth, and enjoying the feeling of a summer breeze embracing me, but I am also pretty sure I would have gotten spanked for it, too. Spanked very hard, the sixties didn’t reach my family home until around 1976. The good news is that for those of us who missed out on the groovy clothes and free love back then, Madcat Creations has designed an excellent prize for The Vintage Hunt. The Male Hippie Outfit is so brilliantly colored it actually looks like it is tie-dyed, as opposed to some similar items with multicolored fractal images on them. This outfit brought me instant faux flashbacks of dancing in the mud, grooving to the sounds of the Grateful Dead. Keep in mind one of the most popular club events in SL are Sixties-themed nights. This prize will come in very handy. The Vintage Hunt is not a free hunt, but the prizes are only 1L and if you look around Madcat Creations you might find the matching women’s version as well (they are boxed separately). My bracelet is a free group gift from one of the best Jewelry stores on SL: Earthstones. The Peace Friendship Bracelet goes great with this outfit, but be mindful that the group costs 250L to join. My campsite is a great hunt prize from Finishing Touches. Available for FREE on The Camping Trip Hunt , it comes with the table, chairs and a nice campfire with a pot of coffee warming. Truly a lovely hunt gift.

whc white wanted jacket

From a full-fledged freak out of colors, we step away from the pallet to admire something entirely different. This white leather jacket with the integrated grey T-shirt from Wanted knocked me out when I saw it. Luckily for all of us, it has just been put on their Midnight Mania board! I was originally planning to pair it with a nice pair of black jeans, or maybe with a frosted texture, which I am sure would look fantastic. However, Apple May Designs had something even better to go with it for 1L in their Recolors Of Spring Hunt. These white pants look great with the jacket, and since they are unbuttoned at the very top, adding a belt to fill the space between the jacket and the pants as shown is a great idea. The Recolors Of Spring Hunt is scheduled to end today so hurry to pick up these pants. Seriously, RUN! As I was preparing this post, I realized this same men’s jacket in XS might please a female avatar who has an androgynous appearance, or is going for a tomboy look. Since it’s an MM board, we guys could sure use your help locking it anyway.

So, as April showers give way to the full bloom of flower power, and your travels on the grid take you to new, exotic locations, please take a moment to reflect on what a lovely, wonderful world we live in. Peace and love.—–WHC Riler

Follow the White Rabbit

Hello hello, FabFree Folks! I hope the weekend has treated you well both in RL and SL.  I finally had some time to try a Hunt I’d had my eye on today: The White Rabbit Hunt from Fun with Hunts. I think y’all might like a few of the things I found.

BFFair2jpg_002

This first look is the mini dress from Fi’s Creations. As always, Fi’s has set out a fantastic hunt prize. I love the flirty hem line and the soft summery colors. It goes perfectly with the Checkered nails from La Boheme for SLink hands and feet. You get the mani and pedi in the white checks and another mani and pedi with black checks.

BFFair2jpg_003

I had so much fun the other day tooling around SL with Gabriel, I thought I’d let him out to play again. This is the Black Cross Eli shirt and the Black Cross Cole jeans from Man Stuff by Firelight Creations.

whiterabbit_001

This gift is amazingly well made and very stylish. It’ll turn heads where ever you go.
