It’s always refreshing to see Designers offering high quality gifts for the men of Second Life.  As Ms. Aline said in her report on the Access Event, the men have not been ignored when it comes to gifts. Nearly every vender of men’s wear has set out a very nice surprise for us. And as Ms. Aline also said: beware the lag! Cam Shopping is the way to go.

All Access

All  of the following items are free at the Access Event when you join the free group. Just wear your tag and help yourself.

Let’s start with my decision not to shave today. Or should I say, selectively shave today. This suave razor cut is from Fe Style. Facial hair style ‘V. GG’ comes with a Catwa and an Omega applier.

Like the shades? These Steampunkish glasses are the ‘Epic Glasses’ from Noir. You’ll get a huge HUD to change every surface to your choice of one of four metal colors. A note here as well on the solid quality of the build. Every detail is spot on.

I know a lot of men don’t like jewelry but I’m not one of them. Like most things in life, it all depends on the quality of the piece. This pendant from Aitui fits the bill perfectly. This is the “Forged Steel Snake” in a deep mahogany color. The necklace is completely resizable to get a correct fit on any body.

Last but not least, my pose is from “Wrong” but it is so right. “W33” comes in four variations and includes a cigarette for the pose. (Don’t tell Juli… she hates smoking) I’ve included a picture of all four poses for you perusal.

Looking for Clues

Looking for Clues

Caiben, Private Eye…

I jimmy the lock on the door, step inside and quietly shut the door behind me. I search through the desk drawers and come up empty. The papers on the desk also reveal nothing. The computer is still on and I see a file on the desktop. Bingo! Pulling out my thumb drive, I quickly copy the file and slip out the door unnoticed.

Sometimes a Gentleman…

I disheveled detective look is a Men Only Hunt 10 gift from AITUI. The Gentleman Open Jacket has the printed shirt attached.  The jacket comes in fitted sizes for Signature, Slink and TMP bodies, but it fit my ADAM body just fine.

His Second Life…

The ‘office’ is a FREE  store anniversary gift from Something New. His Second Life comes with four poses within the office. There is also a Her Second Life gift for the ladies.

Seas the day

Hello FabFree-ers!

Seas the day

I’ve resisted disappearing to the beach for weeks now… but I can’t hold out any longer! Especially not when the Surf into Summer Hunt has such great items tempting me.  Precast Inc has supplied my stripy towel for the Hunt and it comes loaded with four animated poses. The details on the fabric are really well done and the poses are sexy without being overdone, if you know what I mean.   I’m leaving the smexy to this cute bikini from Perfect Seduction. The Sis Bikini comes in the standard mesh sizes from S-XL and has a good alpha layer. I just love the sassy fringe on the bandeau top!

The 1L Surf into Summer Hunt runs until June 21 so you’ve got plenty of time to lounge around in the sand!

The cold never bothered me anyway

I am revisiting the Let it Snow Hunt today. Which is easy to do because there is just a ton of great prizes to find in this year’s Hunt.

The Cold never bothered me anyway

I saw this “Winter Blue Hooded Gown” from Country Charm and had one thought: ELSA!  The gown comes in the standard five Mesh sizes . It also comes with an optional hair ( not shown) for the hood in black, brown and white/blonde. My beautiful necklace is also on the Let it Snow Hunt and it’s from Red Rose Jewelry. This is the Silver Stars with purple diamonds necklace. It comes with a resize script for that perfect fit.

The cold never bothered me anyway

The Let it Snow Hunt runs until December 31 and features over one hundred stops, so I know you’ll find something… or lots of somethings to love!

Autumn Nights

Hello again, my FabFree Dears!

Autumn Nights

I love SL Hunts. You know that… and the more challenging the hunt the better. I’ve found a Hunt that is possibly MORE challenging than my beloved Twisted Hunt. I know! How can that be? But FireStorm’s Spooky Nights Hunt is a fantastic and very challenging Hunt. But, oh boy, is it worth it! With over one hundred and forty prizes… you are sure to find something you love too. This FREE 0L Hunt is divided onto five beautifully done Sims all on one path. You can easily walk from Sim to Sim hunting the skulls that contain the prizes along the way.

First up is this nifty puffy hiking jacket from Ever and Angel. The prize comes with both a men’s and a women’s version, an alpha layer and the standard mesh sizes. The black under shirt is also part of the jacket. It’s just the thing for a wander down an autumn trail or two. I paired the jacket with Sweet tea Couture’s Spooky Nights Scarf. The scarf is also a unisex prize and is resizable. It also comes with a HUD to change it to one of four colors/patterns. I am particularly taken with the multicolored stars.

Autumn Nights

Another great Fall find is this sweater and shirt combo from Dru Wear. The ‘Layer Shirt’ also comes with a men’s version. In fact, there’s a bunch of ‘Guys prize’ to find in this Hunt. Something, I know all of our male readers are sure to appreciate that!

The FireStorm Spooky Nights Hunt lasts until November 30th so you’ve got lots of time to treasure hunt… and you’ll enjoy every minute of it! Oh look, here’s your taxi to the starting point now! -> http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Firestorm%20Support/29/127/33

Bitter Black and White

Even as so many hunts and fairs ended on the 31rst, many are still running. The Bittersweet Hunt and the Epiphany Gacha are two of the lingering events.

Bitter Black and White

Let’s talk about a nifty little Hunt going on until Nov 25, The BitterSweet Hunt. You’ll find everything from clothes to home goods in this 2L hunt as long as the theme is black, white and pink and bitter or sweet. First is this black and white corset dress from Lindy’s Clothing. This sweet little mesh number comes in the five standard sizes – XS to L.

Bitter Black and White

Also on the Bittersweet Hunt is this stylish gift from B.Barbie Style. This is the Midnight Gold mani pedi set for SLink, Belleza and Omega. The set includes nine black and gold styles for your mix and match pleasure.

Rounding out my new black and white look is ‘Rose 21’ from Little Bones as part of their 50L per play gacha at The Epiphany Gacha Event. There are twenty one common colors plus five Rares to win. Be sure to visit the Epiphany website to read up on the special “point” system!

And last but by no means least… do you like the sassy pose? This is the Natalie pose from the 1L gift box at Ms. B’s Designs. You don’t need a group to scoop up two poses: Nate and Natalie. Like all of Ms. B’s poses these are beautifully built and spot on. They are made to be used together but they are just as nice separate.

 

The BitterSweet Hunt runs until November 25th and the Epiphany Gacha Event ends on November 12th.

Hello FabFree Readers and welcome to the Big Free Hair Day! What a way to kick off the new month and FabFree’s new direction. So let’s not delay and jump right into the … hair!

Give me a head with hair, long beautiful hair! Shining, gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen!

Give me a head with hair, long beautiful hair! Shining, gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen!

Blues is quickly becoming one of my ‘go to’ hair designers. While it isn’t a large as some shops the creative and quality of the builds is spot on.

1. – ‘Bono’  – This tossled feminine style comes with seven HUDs of fades and naturals and fun colors. I kinda wish my RL hair looked like this……  (Free/Group Gift/ Group is 70L to join)

2. – ‘Valerie – Another Group Gift, Valerie comes in a full Fat Pack!  (Free/Group Gift/ Group is 70L to join)

Give me a head with hair, long beautiful hair! Shining, gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen!

Another one of my ‘go to’ designers is Phoenix. While the Group is not free to join, the small 50L fee is quickly made up with the group gifts and specials.

This is ‘Isabell’ and it comes in a full Fat Pack. (Free/Group Gift/ Group is 50L to join)

Give me a head with hair, long beautiful hair! Shining, gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen!

Next up is Curious Kitties. I love this designer’s shop! It’s full of freebies and gifts and some really nifty clothes, skins and full avatars. I could spend all day just wandering around looking at everything. So it didn’t surprise me when I found such super cool unique gift hairs here.

  1. – ‘Christmas Angel’ – I love the wings! (Free Gift/no group needed)
  2. – ‘Frasti’ – White is one of my favorite SL hair colors and when you add snowflakes and sparkle… I’m all over it. (Free Gift/no group needed)
  3. – ‘ ‘ – Another cool hair in rainbow shades. I don’t normally do blonde… but I couldn’t resist the colors! (Free Gift/no group needed)

 

Last but not least is Lala Moon. I first encountered this designer at the Hair Fair and that led me to this fun Japanese video game inspired hair, “Phoenix”. Not only is it free for everyone, no group needed… it comes with twenty four colors to pick from!   (Free Gift/no group needed)

Give me a head with hair, long beautiful hair! Shining, gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen!

Shiny, Scissors and Spiders

Oh the Hunts are sooo awesome right now! Today, I’m running with scissors and chasing spiders!

This is the Shredded Cosmic Tank from elation and it’s the 1L Scissor Happy Halloween Hunt prize. I love all things ‘moons and stars’ so this cute tank is just perfect. Take a look at the smexy back for the ‘shredded’ part.

All of the prizes are priced somewhere between 1L and 25L.
