Sith Happens

Sith Happens

There comes a time in everyone’s Second Life when you have to sit down, enjoy some popcorn, and watch the drama unfold, because Sith happens! Seriously, we have all had one of those moments. In light of the drama that happens in SL, Roawenwood put out this fun popcorn bag as their current FREE group gift. This popcorn has a male and female sitting pose, along with a popcorn-munching animation. To get this fun gift, join the FREE Roawenwood in-world group and check past notices.

While sitting back and enjoying your popcorn, you might want a few pillows to prop yourself up. Get comfy and enjoy these “Priestess” pillows by BYRNE. They are a FREE gift at the May round of Create Your Own Tarot. There’s no need to join a group, just stop by the BYRNE booth at CYOT and pick them up. You’ll also find a mesh t-shirt gift for the guys!

So I’m sure you caught me being “punny” earlier with my Sith happens joke. The Star Wars nerd in me couldn’t help herself. Apparently there is an equally punny side to the Que Bella designer as well, considering this “Sith Happens” mini tee is the Que Bella contribution to the Light Side vs. Dark Side Hunt.  This cute top comes in standard system layers and includes several appliers for meshy parts. The hunt is FREE, and you’re searching for a cookie, ’cause everyone knows the Dark Side has cookies. :P

Also part of the Light Side vs. Dark Side hunt are these great wedge heels from Babygirls. I like how at first the pattern looks like an obscure argyle, then when you look closer, tie fighters! Like the top, these shoes are FREE and, again you’re looking for a cookie! The hunt ends June 4th, so you have a little time to score these great shoes. They are meant to be worn with Slink Mid feet.

Here are the details, Enjoy and Happy Hunting!

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.

WLRP_005

If you like role play or fantasy items you can’t miss this event!       Your taxi to the event!

What Goes Around, Comes Around!

whc lyrcoldash pic

I never intended it to happen, but do you have an article of clothing that you rely on as a “go to” item, one that absolutely refuses to age? I do! And, later in this post, we are going to celebrate its one-year anniversary in my wardrobe. First though, check out what I found last night! I went by a store named Cold Ash, which specializes in fantastically detailed, rugged-looking men’s clothing. I found this vintage style T-shirt as their FREE Group Gift! The Mesh Austin Tee in STEEL BLUE is a fine representation of the quality that goes into the clothing that Cold Ash makes. Anyone who knows me knows I am a sucker for T-Shirts that look soft and well-worn, and this ribbed cotton T-shirt hangs beautifully with soft, realistic folds. It’s like it was never meant to be taken off. In the FREE Group Gift, you get 3 sizes and an additional 2 sizes in fitmesh, so getting a good fit won’t be any problem. Stop by Cold Ash, this is a must pick up! The pants I chose to wear with it are the current FREE Group Gift from Lavarock, likely my favorite male clothing store on Second Life. They are the Destroy Male Jeans and are probably one of the grungiest items in my wardrobe. I love the texture on them. Honestly, if I ever move to Seattle to pursue my dreams of alt-rock super stardom, these are the jeans I am going to wear! They come in 2 styles, with five sizes of each included in the gift. The only problem is they have been out for quite a while, and at the moment I am unable to say how much longer they will remain available. If you like them in the picture, go get them immediately. I suspect they may not be available much longer. The last item in the Cold Ash inspired outfit is the cap, which was just one of those lucky finds you sometimes run across accidentally. It is a 1L hunt prize from a hunt which is sadly already over. Luckily, the owner of Ashmoot forgot to pick up the hunt prize! It’s only 1L and the cap matches the T-shirt wonderfully. Sadly I can’t recall the name of the hunt, but you are looking for a hunt object shaped like a mask called “P-H Hunt # 8″. Look for it where you find the daily prize boards. Kristabel Ashmoot promises me she will leave it out until the end of the month so we all have a chance to grab it (a VERY sweet thing to do for us). Be sure to pick it up before it’s too late!

I teased you that as I write this I am celebrating an anniversary of sorts, and I have Lyrieal’s Boutique to thank for it. I recently attended “Just For Him”, a cart sale like event with a 1L mini-hunt where I found this great leather jacket! It comes from Lyrieal’s Boutique and is their Just For Him Hunt Prize. It has a hud that allows you to choose 5 different colors in both the leather and the lining. For a single linden, that’s great value. The event is not a large one, but I should have known Lyrieal’s Boutique would have something special out. This brings me to the anniversary: I was dying to show you this jacket and was having trouble finding just the right pants to present it with, so I decided to go with my “go to” grey system jeans and Mesh boots, tinting the jeans a bit darker to match. After doing the picture, I began putting together this post, and found I had reason to smile. Those beloved jeans and boots of mine are from a hunt one year ago today…and were previously blogged here by a young guest blogger. Coincidentally, they also came from Lyrieal’s Boutique! So, to celebrate the one-year anniversary of their posting in Fab Free, the In The Pink outfit has been added to the 1L hunt prize, making it even better. It is a great looking outfit and the jeans are tintable to match a wide range of grays, so they are super handy to have around. Even the boots are nice, you can’t beat this value. I had originally planned to end my post here, and call it a night, but once I get going I am hard to stop. So in the spirit of “You really should check out the Just For Him sales event”, here is a final addition to my post below!

whc cold ash beach 1_001

While I was at the sale, I noticed a pair of shorts on the back wall of the booth belonging to the store Trashed. Just like the other coincidences this week (the hat which looked great with the T-shirt that was accidentally left out, and the nice jeans I decided to wear being posted to fab free exactly one year ago today) these denim shorts look like they were made to go with the Cold Ash T-Shirt I picked up this week. The Trashed Men’s denim shorts in plaid are not free, but this is a sale event as well as a hunt and these shorts look really great. If you love that T-shirt as much as I do, that is reason enough to pony up the extra 85L for these shorts to go with them. They make a fantastic pair together. Once again, I have worked late into the evening and I must go, but this has been a post full of pleasant surprises. Until next time my friends, see you on the grid. —–WHC Riler

Bohemian Ballerina

Boho

I’m not sure what to call this look, I think I’ll go with Bohemian Ballerina. This pretty floral top is the FREE May subscribo gift at ViVi. It comes in  regular system layers and includes several appliers. I thought it was really sweet and pretty on. Initially I thought about putting on a cute pair of blue-jean shorts and some summery sandals, but I came across this dainty mini skirt on the Marketplace, and went with it. I think the end result turned out well! The skirt is by Lamp*Light and includes a color change hud to change the skirt from white to blue, pink, or black. Considering this fully mesh skirt is just 1 linden, it’s well worth the effort even though it does not come with an alpha layer.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Free Dove Hunt – Part 2

Free Dove Hunt 2

I can’t believe this long week is almost coming to an end! Haha Thankfully the May Mini Hunt at Free Dove  lasts all month, so no reason to miss out on these great hunt prizes. This second post about the Free Dove  hunt includes a few more fantastic items that I just had to show you. There are several more hunt items that I haven’t shown, but I do believe half the fun of a hunt is discovering the gifts.

Just in case you missed it, here’s a link to Part 1.

I mentioned before how cute this dress is when I showed it in another pattern in my first Free Dove  hunt post, and I still find it absolutely adorable. I love the dainty little flowers on this version. This mesh dress is a FREE hunt prize by Fission. Also by Fission are these sort of fractal patterned leggings. I could see wearing these mesh pants with a cute solid colored tank or a big comfy sweater. Again these are a FREE hunt prize at Free Dove. Next, you may remember that chunky ring by Masoom shown in my first Free Dove hunt post, well these equally chunky and equally fun bangles are another FREE hunt prize. These bright bangles kinda remind me of the 80s when neon was so very in, which makes them even cooler ’cause they’re “retro”! Last, I think these black and blue plaid pumps are my absolute favorite of the Free Dove hunt prizes. They are also by Fission, and are meant to be worn with Slink High feet. I think they have a great vintage look, and are just darling on!

Here are the details, Happy Hunting!!

Free Dove Hunt – Part 1

Free Dove May 2

Hi there Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about you, but I’ve had a long week already and I’m in some major need of retail therapy! Luckily there is a great hunt going on at Free Dove for the month of May. This means I get my retail therapy for FREE! When I first started the hunt, I really had no idea just how big the hunt really was. There is a lot of cool stuff to be had, everything from shoes to jewelry.

To start, pictured in the top left photo is this super fun party dress. This mesh dress is one of the FREE hunt gifts from Fission. I love the sequined skirt! The dress comes in standard mesh sizes with matching alpha layers. Next, in the center photo, the mask and the ring are both gifts at Free Dove from Masoom. The sheer lace mask is mesh and has the ability to be re-sized, and has a ribbon tie that goes around your head. I like the almost art deco look to this chunky ring. The ring is actually part of a complete outfit you can find while hunting, but it was so cute I couldn’t resist showing it right away! To the right in the photo is a pretty cocktail dress, also by Fission. Like all the gifts in this hunt, this is also FREE. The dress comes with standard sizes and alphas. I think it would be great for entertaining guests.

Free Dove May 1

Now for a few of the more casual items in the Free Dove hunt. I think this light blue day dress is very sweet. The buttons on the chest make the dress, I also really like the little cap-sleeves. This is a FREE hunt gift from Fission and it comes with standard sizes. The top pictured in the center is also by Fission. I was really happy to see something in one of my favorite shades of green. As with the other Free Dove hunt gifts by Fission, this one is fully mesh with standard sizes. I think the dress in the photo to the right is really feminine and pretty. It too is by Fission, and of course is fully mesh. In the country we’d wear this little dress with some cute boots and a bolero style jean-jacket!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my review of the Free Dove Hunt so far! There will be more to come, so stay tuned!

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
