On The Hunt Once Again!

whc moh razor3_001

Hello, everyone. Welcome to my favorite time of the year in Second Life (which is any time a major men’s clothing hunt is going on). Everyone knows I have been waiting for this hunt for weeks and I am happy to say it has been a highly enjoyable event, providing some excellent quality items. Before describing the items in the above picture, I would like you to click on it. That will bring you to my flickr. Then, click once more to see the picture in its’ original resolution. The reason I invite you to do this is because the more detailed picture, the more impressed you will be with the items’ quality.

The first item I want to show you from The Men’s Only Hunt is the tattoo I am wearing. Honestly, it is the best, most comprehensive FREE gift tattoo I have ever seen. The level of detail in this tattoo is simply unbelievable! Take a close look at the About That Life Tattoo & Sleeves from Inhale and you will probably understand why I am so excited. While the level of detail packed in this tat makes it an excellent hunt gift, there is something else that makes it a must-have hunt item. In addition to being wearable for regular basic avies, it also contains appliers for Omega, Signature and TMP Mesh avies! Inhale has even included a Slink hands version! This is a fantastic tattoo and, if you later decide to go with a Mesh avatar, it is highly likely you will still be able to wear it. The Men’s Only Hunt is a FREE hunt and will be going on until September 13th. Look for the cool, frothy beer hunt object to find your gift. Don’t miss out on this tat!

This is the first time I am posting this style of sweatpants. While undoubtedly popular, they aren’t my usual style in real life. Until now, I have never gotten one in a hunt that was so excellent that I literally HAD to post them! Take a look at these Blue Mack Sweats, the FREE Men’s Only Hunt prize from Razor. I am a long-time fan of their high quality, edgy style of street wear. When I unpacked these sweatpants, I was blown away with their first-rate quality. The material looks soft, and the mesh design looks highly realistic, right down to having a great amount of pocket space. Combine that with the brilliant blue and black colors of the sweatpants and you have another must pickup from The Men’s Only Hunt. I know many Fab Free readers will be interested to learn that this gift includes a FEMALE VERSION in addition to the male one. It isn’t every day I get to catch the ladies’ attention, so thank you very much Razor!

A friend of mine who helped me on the hunt was looking for a cool pair of sunglasses. The Farewell Summer Glasses from 7Mad;Ravens fit the bill perfectly. Dark and stylish, this FREE Men’s Only Hunt gift has a very subtle touch of color across the top of the frame, and WOW, do I love that touch! These glasses look superb and are another item from the above pic that will impress you more the closer you look.

I couldn’t resist going all out for the pic, so I included the FREE Men’s Only Hunt gift from Legal Insanity for a touch of street cred. The Biker Necklace is a tough-looking heavy pair of gold chains. Often gold jewelry on SL can look unrealistic, but this necklace does not suffer from the common mistake of being overly yellow and bright. I was truly impressed with the looks of this pixel treasure from the fine folks at Legal Insanity and I hope you will enjoy it too.

The final item to highlight in the above picture is my new bracelet. A FREE Men’s Only Hunt gift from Apple May Designs, the Men’s Forged Cuffs look fantastic. The texture gives it a hammered by hand look, making it appear to be a piece of finely crafted jewelry. My picture does not even showcase the entire gift. Although I show it on my right wrist alone, the hunt prize actually includes both right and left wrist versions. Both come in two colors: chocolate bronze and steel finish. It is a highly versatile hunt gift, and yet another reason you should be doing the Men’s Only Hunt this month!

whc laundry day 1_001

I usually wear the same type of clothing in Second Life that I would wear in real life, simple like soft cotton T-Shirts and jeans, or something smart and dressy looking. A perfect example of my kind of T-Shirt is this wonderfully textured Dexter Mesh Tee from Sharp By [ZD]. Emblazoned with the words “Laundry Today OR naked tomorrow,” I even feel as if it fits into my rl lifestyle. I am naked a lot of the time, but I am not actually a naturist. I am just too lazy to do laundry very often. For all the guys out there that totally understand where I am coming from, this T-Shirt is for you. It comes in three Mesh sizes and two FitMesh ones, and is actually pre-stained to give it that authentic laundry day apparel look! Like the other items from the Men’s Only Hunt this month, it is FREE for the taking.

Lately, I have been posting a surprising amount of hair. Usually, male hair is a very tough find for free or even extremely inexpensive. It is one of the main challenges as far as building a new male avy for a reasonable price. I don’t know why we have been blessed with such a wide variety of good free hair lately, but I am quite happy about it. My wash day hair is the new FREE Men’s Only Hunt gift from Ayashi. Their Toma hair in black was perfect for this pic, just the right mix of spiky and unkempt for the Laundromat. Remember, for this and all the other items on the Men’s Only Hunt, the hunt object you are looking for is a cool, frothy beer.

Finally, I couldn’t hit the “send” button on this post without mentioning the pose I used for the wash day picture. It is one of three poses included in the FREE Men’s Only Hunt gift from Verocity! It looks excellent and is a pose I will undoubtedly use many more times over the years to show off men’s garments.

Hopefully, that’s enough to tempt you to discover the joys of hunting in Second Life. With patience, it can be highly rewarding. Stay tuned for next week’s continued coverage of The Men’s Only Hunt where I will try to tempt you into hunting by sharing more of the rich treasures to be had for FREE! Until then my friends, see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler

Calle and Shamic are layered sweater buddies! Hmmm…that sounds odd.

Oh boy, do I have a lot to show you in this post! Well, not just me, but Shamic as well. So let’s get right to it!

wilderness3

I’m going to start with myself first. This super cute, mesh sweater is currently available at the Bargain Gacha event, and it’s from Mag<3.B. For L$30 a play, you can try your luck at winning 1 of 9 different versions. I really wanted the rare, but I kept winning the same 2 over and over again (keep an eye out at the FabFree yardsale, you might see my extras there!). I was happy, however, to win this purple version called POIS, as it just so happened to match the purple boots that were given out as a group gift from REIGN today, as a nice surprise. The Laced Lavie boots were REIGN‘s Saturday Sale item, and were all priced at a super affordable L$75 a colour, but, when KenedeeCole, one of REIGN‘s co-owner’s, was putting the boots out last night, in her sleepy state, she forgot to put out the purple pair! As a super generous gesture, she decided to send them out as a group gift when she realized what had happened. The group is L$250 to join, but as you can see, the fee is not bad, especially since the October group gift, which Tiana showed off quite nicely HERE,  is still in the notices.

Now, on to Shamic. He is showing off the November group gift from 7 Deadly s{K}ins for the guys, which has a really nice, slightly rugged looking face. Like the female gift I showed you a few posts back, it also come with appliers for SLink hands and feet! Yayy. The sweater he is wearing, is from Platypus , of LOoLOo & Platypus , who just so happen to have recently been added on as one of our FabFree fabulous designers! This Argyle sweater in Teal is from the Fashion Play Hunt for Him (there is also a for Her route as well), and for only L$1, you get this colour, plus 5 others. Can’t beat 6 sweaters for L$1! Also from the Fashion Play Hunt are the gorgeous blue eyes he has on. Those are from * InkHeart *, and along with the male gift, there is a prize for the Her side as well, which are an equally pretty pair of eyes in brown. Each are L$1. This hunt runs until November 15th, so you have plenty of time to check it out. Check out this blog for a list of stores participating in both side of this hunt, as well as hints for the prizes. Last but not least, Shamic needed a pair of shoes that were not sneakers, or boots 😛 I went searching on the Marketplace, and found the HOC Casual Loafers, for only L$30. To make this deal even better, the shoes have a texture change script, so you have several colour options to choose from, to match any outfit.

Phew! I think I got everything! All I know is, I am beat after all this running around, and putting together Shamic’s look as well as my own. I think he needs to do some of his own shopping frankly. LOL.

OK lovelies, I am going to leave you with a pretty picture of us as we enjoyed the sound of water lapping against the beach. Ahhh.
