Back In Black!

82615 post

Here I am again, fresh from a one-week vacation. I am sporting the official color of men’s clothing on Second Life, so you know I am bringing my “A” game. “Blog or die!” that’s my motto. I would have it tattooed on my arm, but if I did, somewhere out there is a person with a name like Alfred J. Blog who would do something publicly embarrassing. Then I would have to pay again to get the tat removed. I blog hard, but I am also very practical. Oh, and cheap, too.

First up on my list of fantastic finds is this jacket from REDPANDA. The Leather Jacket With Shirt is currently offered as a very generous FREE group gift. It is a one piece mesh combo of the jacket and the simple T-shirt, a classic look for a male avy if there ever was one. My favorite color to wear it in is black, of course. However, REDPANDA includes a hud that gives you five additional color choices, along with an additional eight colors for the T-shirt. You can also forgo the Tee entirely by choosing “No Shirt” on the hud. Four sizes and a clearly-grained leather texture with excellent details, such as visible stitching and metallic zipper teeth, make this a FREE group gift worth picking up!

So, newly back from the glorious sunshine, I figured it was time for me to go wild, and what better item to go wild in than these pants from Deadly Mouse? Their 1L Fashion Play Hunt For Him gift is a great outfit called Over Limit. It includes these crazy pants, subdued in color while the pattern is bursting with energy and life! They come in five sizes. Plus, this hunt gift also includes a great mesh hoodie in slate blue with excellent folds making it look very soft. Honestly if you like realistic looking clothes, and you want a solid blue hoodie, you are going to love the one that is in this box! I am going to give you a hint to help you find the hunt prize, which I rarely do, because I really want as many of you as possible to find this: “This hunt object is so small, it might drive you INSANE!” The hunt object is a small blue and black rectangle, and it’s easy. I promise.

I don’t wear jewelry often, so when I find something I have to like it immensely in order to consider posting it. Such is the case for the necklace I am wearing today. The Trophy Necklace from IT! (Indulge Temptation!) definitely fulfills that criterion and more. The Trophy Necklace comes with a hud giving you seven choices for the colors of the beads and it is materials enabled. This 1L Fashion Play Hunt For Him gift is the perfect accessory for the “Wild thing” mood I am in today! Pick this up to go with some casual and beachwear outfits. It’s a great find.

I am wearing another fantastic FREE skin gift from the Midnight Mania Board at Tellaq. I have mentioned them before since they are one of the best sources for men’s skins on the grid (also one of the most generous). Join the FREE group at the front of the main store and run to the back of the store to tap that MM board. Where else can you get a skin this good, and in sixteen facial hair variations with bonus goodies thrown in FOR FREE? Seriously, if you are a guy on SL, make this a regular stop, and ladies, please give it a tap now and then to help us guys out. The target is high, usually requiring 500 slaps, but the board does close regularly and the gifts are outstanding.

While you are checking out that close up of the devilishly handsome guy in the picture above, take a good look at his eyes. These are the current FREE Group Gift eyes from IKON, one of my favorite eye merchants on the grid. Just yesterday Love posted them here, but they look just as great on male avies too. These IKON Unisex Triumph Eyes in Armor have a combination of brown and tan tones in them and if you click my pic twice, you should be able to zoom in to see them in spectacular detail. The IKON group is FREE to join and I heartily encourage you to do so.

Lastly, for what seems to be a week jam-packed with great gifts and prizes to grab, Alli&Ali Designs are participating in the Fashion Play For Him Hunt as well. Their FREE gift is the stylish Roman Hair that I am wearing. It is offered in eleven colors and has an option for streaks in the hair to make it more versatile. Depending on your skin, you might want to find a hairbase from your inventory to wear with it to give it a more finished look like I did. The box does not include one, and it is not required as it looks great without one.

That’s it for this marathon post! You can tell I missed all of you since I had this many items saved up to share. We are nearing the end of the month, so if you see something you might want, go get it as soon as possible. The Fashion Play For Men Hunt ends August 31st. Until next time everyone, take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

A few more days of Summer sun

Boy… that was one long weekend! I hope it was a great one for all you Fabulous Folks.

BRii_001

Happily, I got a minute or two to satisfy my SL Hunt desires at Brii’s Underground Wear. This is the 1L White and Flowers Hunt ad it runs until August 31st.  There are ten sweet summery outfits hidden in  little clusters of flowers all over the store to find. Each prize is only 1 little linden but you get the outfit, the shoes and a make-up on a tattoo layer. I chose to show my favorite prize today: the Elsie. Again, you get the dress in five standard Mesh sizes, the shoes for SLink High Feet and a tattoo layer make-up.

I don’t want to let go of summer just yet so leave me here in my garden and my summery sundress for a little longer.

SL Weddings – A Sure Sign That You Ignore Your Friends’ Advice!

tiftux2_001

Weddings…on Second Life you only get married six or seven times a year. If that were the case in real life, no one would rent tuxes. They would be part of our regular wardrobe. I know, sometimes SL marriages do work, occasionally in spectacular fashion. It’s that hope that keeps a lot of us going, and going, and going- (much to the dismay of our friends). My point is: the longer you are here on Second Life, the more impossible it is not to become partnered in some way to someone you care about. When that happens, you must have something fantastic to wear.

Tiffany’s Designs have recently changed their monthly group gift. Previously, it was a beautiful white suit that I wear often when I wander around the grid. This time, they have outdone even that gorgeous garment! The Mae Men’s Wedding Suit *Paris consists of two pieces meant to be worn together, so it is simple to wear. Each part is offered in five Mesh sizes to help make the fit just plain easy. The first piece is the jacket, which is black and nicely textured, complete with long tails. The remaining piece is the rest of the tux including the shirt, tie, pants and waistcoat in one combined garment. When worn, it is an elegant tux that will turn heads, whether you are standing at the altar or slow dancing with someone you adore. The Tiffany’s Designs group is not free (it will set you back 50L), but the quality of the gifts make it well worth it!

tiftux3_001

This August is another great month to be a guy on Second Life. Currently, running is the fourteen store Fashion Play For Men Hunt. The eyes I choose to wear with this tux are Fashion Eyes – Charm, the Fashion Play For Men Hunt prize from Inkheart . They are light gray with a slight greenish tint. They look pretty realistic and I am very pleased with them. One nice thing about Inkheart . is they participate in a lot of hunts and are quite generous with their gifts. The Fashion Play For Men Hunt prizes cost 1L each and are expected to be out all month. As if that’s not enough, starting August 29th is the Men’s Only Hunt 6 which should have over sixty participating merchants. I can hardly wait!

Second Life, where romance blooms all year around! (Amazing how fertile the soil is when so much fertilizer is laid down first.) Seriously, part of SL is the romance and mystery of blossoming relationships, and if you choose not to take the time for a romantic dance every so often, you are missing out on a great deal of fun. Go pick up some seriously dashing clothes and give it a shot. Your Second Life just might become even more amazing. That’s it for now, my friends. See you on the grid.—–WHC Riler

Just Say ‘I Do’

Hello hello, Fab Free Folks! I hope this brand new August is treating you well. With the start of August we have the start of a bunch of new Hunts including the 1L  ‘Marry Me Hunt’ from Nefeli Events.

Just Say "I Do"
I picked this Hunt because I am such a hopeless romantic. My real life wedding anniversary is in August so dressing up as a bride again in second life was just too much fun. I started with the dress, of course. This is the Chiffon Sparkle Wedding Gown from Kitty Shape Wears. You get both the dress and the shimmery veil in the Hunt prize. I know this is a wedding dress but the clean elegant lines would make this a lovely evening gown for any occasion.     Just Say "I Do"

 

I added some glamor and glitz with the “Beloved” jewelry set from Footpaw Industries. Your one Linden will score you the necklace, the earrings, two bracelets, the tiara, and two hair sticks. And again, this is lovely wedding wear but you could easily wear the set for any dress up occasion.

Now I just needed the perfect back drop for my new finery. Darkmatter stepped up and granted my wish with the gorgeous Lover’s Bench. The sweet little retreat comes loaded with three couples poses just right for photos.

The Marry Me Hunt runs until August 31st so hurry down the aisle!

Clothes That Don’t Wear Out And Great Places To Wear Them!

8415 ab2_001

Hello, everyone! This week, I am sharing something a bit special with you; and it has to do with the very spot where I am standing. But first, let’s talk about something FREE and fantastic! Every month, I swing by the American Bazaar store to pick up their FREE group gift. This month they have offered the James Jacket in Electric Blue along with the James Shirt in Black. Each piece comes in five sizes for versatility, but they are meant to be worn together so there is a single alpha accommodating both the jacket and shirt. The color is dark and dramatic, just like me! When I dress for my own pleasure, this is absolutely the kind of item I am drawn to: dressy, yet still very casual and comfortable looking. American Bazaar did a great job with this garment. Plus, the group is FREE to join, so make sure you run out and pick this up.

All of us have very different reasons to be on SL, and what we choose to do here can be vastly different from avy to avy. I am an avid freebie hunter, blogger, and general goof off, but Second Life offers us many different activities to do and enjoy. One that I personally like to do is go to concerts and listen to live performers like my friends Phideaux Mayo and Maximillion Kleene. I truly admire the talent and courage it takes to get up in front of people and perform. When you are looking for an interesting activity, I encourage you to search in “events” and sample some of the live entertainment SL has to offer, which brings me to where I am now standing. This is the ENT SL RADIO TRANSPORT HUB and is an excellent place to pop by when you are looking for entertainment. ENT SL Radio is kind of like RL public broadcasting: it offers eighty hours of FREE programming a week! You can even listen to it outside of Second Life by visiting their web site. At the hub, you will find many kiosks, each if which represents a club that is partnering with ENT to help broadcast and promote live music to the SL community. Walk around and check out the schedules. You can even teleport directly to your club of choice from the bus stop. It is a fun and FREE way to explore music and clubs that you might not have experienced yet. I highly recommend you add it to your list of places to check out.

8415 madcat 3_001

Now that you have a great place to go, to choose whichever live performer you may fancy, how about something else you could wear? It is my pleasure to let you know about another item from Madcat Creations that is definitely worthy of your attention. Madcat Creations got my attention in late April by making an amazing hippie outfit that I blogged here. Now they are offering a 1L hunt prize from the Romance Under The Stars Hunt, the Leather N Lace in Red Dress Shirt and Jacket combo looks great with its vibrant color, in addition to giving me my recommended daily dose of black clothing. Together with the white tee part of this garment, the three components in the mesh look extremely well layered giving the appearance of being separate items. This is a fantastic piece of mesh! It comes in three sizes, each of them being similar to fitmesh in that they will conform to your avy. I got an excellent fit without any fuss at all. The red is quite eye catching. After all, do you really want to spend your time blending into the background? Reach for some color now and then and spice up your Second Life, and this garment is an excellent start.

That is all for now. I am going to wander about and find a good concert to check out. However you choose to spend your Second Life, I wish you the best and look forward to running into you one day. Until then, have fun and see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler

Besom body, be Anybody

AMD1

Hello Fab Free’rs, we made it through Monday! I think that deserves a little celebration, and what better way to celebrate than with a little shopping trip?! The pretty sleeveless top Pru has on is the current 25 linden special at Apple May Designs. I love this pretty dark pink color. The top is fully mesh and includes this pinstriped version and a plain version. In the package you’ll get the standard mesh sizes as well as Belleza fit for both Isis and Freya bodies. The top will be available for just 25 lindens until August 7th, so don’t forget to stop by Apple May Designs!

AMD2

In addition to the cute top from AMD, I also picked up this gorgeous hairstyle from Besom. The Besom group is currently FREE to join, and this hairstyle “Genesis” is a current FREE gift. This gift comes in a complete fat pack with all the available color huds. I love the heavy bangs and thick lush waves.

So, if you’ve been wondering about the skin Pru has on, you’re in luck! This is the Lazy Sunday skin by Lumae from last Sunday. I know it’s not Sunday anymore, but Lumae is leaving the skin at the ultra low price of 75 lindens per tone until August 15th! What makes this an even better deal is the fact that it’s a full skin with all the available appliers and add-ons.

Next, if you haven’t been to The Aloha Fair yet, you need to go! I’m honestly not sure how long it is running. This beautiful medallion Pru is wearing is the dollarbie gift from Tantalum at The Aloha Fair. I think it’s a great statement piece, and the fact that it’s named “Atreyu” makes me think that the creator may have been inspired by the movie “The Never-ending Story” and that makes my dork side seriously happy.

Last but not least, I have a little preview of good things to come from Entice. These matte leather pumps will be available at Entice for just 49 lindens starting tomorrow (August 5th) as part of their Secret Wednesday Yard Sale Week. Everyone who wears Slink or Maitreya fit heels should have a pair like this in their wardrobe. They go with everything!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Sailor Prudence

Sailor PruIt’s Cos-play time! One thing I never tire of, even as an adult, is playing dress-up. Maybe that’s why I enjoy blogging so much. I get to play dress up regularly. Recently I came across this super cute Sailor Moon inspired outfit from Milk Tea. The shorts and top set is the Crazy for Kawaii Hunt gift at Milk Tea, and you can hunt it down and claim it for just one linden. This dollarbie hunt prize comes in system layers and includes omega appliers, a Lolas applier, a Belleza applier, and a “Combo” applier. Needless to say, it’s got quite a few options! To add to this playful outfit I found a cute little compact on the Marketplace. This crescent moon shaped compact is by Ity and is FREE on the Marketplace. Next, the moment I saw the FREE gift from ZOZ at the Mesh Body Addicts Fair, I had to have it for this outfit! The nail palate gift from ZOZ comes with a pretty array of slick blue polishes. Now all I need is a good convention to go to, and I’ll be set! ** My sincere apologies Fab Free’rs, I made a mistake on the Nail Appliers from ZOZ. They are Not available as a gift. I’m so sorry for the oops! 

Have Fun, here are the details!

He Shoots, He Scores!

72715bball5b_001

Happy Wednesday, everyone! This week, I decided to get more exercise, change some of my poor eating habits, and end up with a healthier version of me! Yeah…had you going there a minute, didn’t I? LOL! Seriously, my favorite find this week is a very good looking basketball uniform emblazoned with the words “New York” across the front. The hunt prize from the Boom Boom Pow Hunt, The Mensline Mesh Basketball Outfit from KAD Designs is great athletic wear even, if you aren’t a basketball fan. The jersey alone would fit well in an urban street wear outfit, but KAD Designs gives you much more than that! The hunt prize includes the entire uniform right down to the sneakers and socks. In you have no need of active wear, consider this: The outfit has some seriously fun role play potential in the right situations. The Boom Boom Pow hunt ends on the 31st of July, and this gift will set you back 1L. Hurry and grab it, it is a very nice gift.

72815Basketball Blk1

Staying with the basketball theme, earlier today I saw that IAF had set out a goodie bag for us guys with multiple freebies in it. Among the four items in the bag is this basketball jersey with the number “01” on it and with the name “Hustle” on the back. This happens to be perfect for me since “Hustle” happens to be my nickname around the office. (I sold Love’s stapler to Pru, then wrapped up Pru’s stapler as a gift to Love. I would have gotten away with it if it weren’t for those pesky kids!) The Jersey is black with silverish gray numbers and accents and would look as great out on the street as it would on a basketball court. One last note, in this very generous FREE gift bag IAF also included some chinos, a sweater, and a wool jacket/shirt combo!

Lastly, my hair is a great FREE group gift from Amacci! Truly one of the best places for men’s hair on the grid, I was very pleased to hear they had put a male hair out recently and hurried over. The current FREE group gift is called “Leon” and comes in cinnamon. It is a nice length for guy hair; I call it medium length in my inventory and is a must pick up, since free hair for guys is such a tough find. I don’t know how long this will be out. So, like most of the end of the month items, it is best to run and grab it before it vanishes like the playoff dreams of a basketball team from a certain city that I will not specify.

That’s what I have for you this week. Whether you want to look good hanging out on the corner talking smack to your friends, playing a quick pick up game of basketball, or have an interesting idea for a role play in mind, these items should come in quite handy. Until next week my friends, take care and see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler
