Midnight Madness Is About To Begin

Midnight Madness (April)

Hello Fabulous Readers! Normally on the blog we like to show you freebies on our own avatars that already available, but… I don’t want you to miss out on these very time sensitive 30 FREE offers, so I am breaking the rules a bit!

The Midnight Madness Event which is run by Apple May Designs, is into it’s third monthly round now and it begins tonight (Friday, April 1st) at midnight!  There are 15 stores participating with the prizes being shown in the photo above (borrowed from AMD’s flickr feed – hope they don’t mind ;)).  Each participating store will have one board that will go live at midnight SLT (1500 gift limit) and another that will go live at noon SLT on Saturday, April 2nd.  (1500 gift limit).  Some of the boards will be group only and will be clearly marked.

Prudence, and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Bad Day

Have you ever had one of those days where nothing seems to go right and everything turns into a disaster? That was me today! Luckily, the day is over, and I was able to make myself feel a heck of a lot better by trying on all the 5 linden swag I picked up at Whore Couture 5. Before I continue, I do want to make it clear (as if the name wasn’t suggestive enough) that Whore Couture 5 is an Adult event with very adult content in some shops. The event is celebrating 5 years and has a huge number of participating shops. To help celebrate the 5th round of the Whore Couture Fair each of the shops has a special 5 linden gift set out. There’s no need to join the group to get the gifts, and there are plenty of great gifts that aren’t adult themed.

Despite the expression on Pru’s face, I really love these gifts! The hair she’s wearing is the WCF5 Gift from Phoenix. The style is called Fabienne and includes the light browns color hud, and the VIP rainbow color hud. There are also 3 size options for this style so you get the best fit. This is a great long wavy style, and for 5 lindens you’ll want it in your inventory!

Next on the list, how hot is this makeup applier from The Skinnery? I love it! The dark splatter around the eyes, and the watercolor-like cheeks are a bit doll-like and equally sinister. This 5 linden WCF5 gift from The Skinnery is an Omega applier, so should work with any Omega compatible head as long as you have the appropriate Omega relay.

The second  put on the necklace from Kenvie, I didn’t want to take it off, and I knew I had to share it with you! This geometric necklace is a great statement piece. This particular WCF5 gift includes a male version, and can be re-sized via touch menu. Honestly, there isn’t anything I don’t like about this gorgeous necklace.

It goes without saying that I love tattoos, and I’m always impressed by Identity Body Shop. These arcane looking hand tattoos are the 5 linden WCF5 gift from Identity Body Shop. This generous gift includes classic system layers, and the following appliers: Omega, Maitreya, WowMeh, and Belleza (in a single hud), along with a separate TMP applier, and individual appliers for Maitreya hands, Slink, and TMP.

Finally, for this post anyway, this black top is just part of the WCF5 gift from Apple May Designs. This cute sleeveless crop top comes in 3 colors, black, pink, and white. Included with each color are classic system layers, and the following appliers for just 5 lindens: Maitreya, TMP, Slink, Omega, and Belleza. You can never have too many cute solid colored tops, so don’t forget to pick up this one!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Have you made it to Shiny Shabby yet? There are so many (FREE!) reasons to go! Remember… it’s Shiny Shabby‘s anniversary! (How could we forget😉 ) And that means lots of FREE gifts!

Love Me Fiercely_001

I love applier clothing, and Apple May Designs is giving this really lovely black Izzie body suit in soooo many appliers as a FREE gift at their booth at Shiny Shabby right now. You’ll get traditional system layers as well as Baby Bump, Belleza, Omega, Maitreya, Slink, and TMP. It even comes with optional rigged mesh bows which attach along the back to finish these cute little number off!

While the Izzie body suit is a stand out piece on its own, I did decide to pair it with another FREE gift. Evani is giving this lovely pink skirt in all the standard mesh sizes if you take a stroll on past their stall. It has a really terrific pink denim texture to it, if you get up close, and the styling is classic with nice wrinkles and flow.

Love Me Fiercely 2_001

Are you in the mood to put on your fierce face? Glam Affair is giving a FREE gift applier for Lelutka heads at their stall! This Estelle applier with it’s dark shadowed eyes, freckled nose and cheeks, and luscious lips is what I would call femininely fierce! Rawr!

My cute Peace and Love necklace was also FREE! Just pick up the gift at the Bamse stall nearby too!

Love Me Fiercely 3_001

I’m always in the mood for a great set of heels, and so I couldn’t pass up on this FREE strappy pair of stilettos courtesy of R.icilli. The gift includes shoes to fit Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink feet!

Music to My Ears

Quality FREE clothes in Second Life are always music to my ears! And if you haven’t stopped by Free Dove lately to check out the many wonderful offerings by all the creative designers who come together in one great location to give you goodies, you are missing out! I’m giving you a peek at just a few items you can pick up at Free Dove to give you an idea of the lovely things available!

Music to My Ears 1

Free Dove has it all for both Ladies and Gents… from the casual to the elegant! My fun casual side tie t-shirt and skirt outfit above with its cute Gothic print on the shirt is a FREE gift you can pick up courtesy of Iconica at Free Dove. Like all the gifts, no group is required. Just buy it for 0L.

Music to My Ears 2

Free Dove has plenty of elegant looks as well. Don’t be fooled by my casual attire in the first picture. I picked up this classy Simply Dressy black dress by Apple May Designs for FREE at Free Dove as well. It is their current FREE gift at the location. It is just long enough to be a cocktail dress, but a little short for my modesty, so I paired it with a pair of capris from my inventory, but you could certainly wear it alone!

I also nabbed a pair of really stylish FREE slink heels by Vavien Stylish while I was there. These strappy stilettos were just the thing to keep my dress looking dressy, even though I paired it with jeans😉

There really are too many great FREE gifts at the Free Dove to share with you in one post. Don’t wait, head there and check it out for yourself!

Eternal Winter

Winter

It’s been quite a while since I’ve done a full hunt, but when I saw some of the previews for The Eternal Hunt, I just had to try! The Eternal Hunt is a stamp hunt, meaning you have to wear a hud and follow the teleports to each location and find the hunt object. For this hunt, you’ll be looking for a glowing blue infinity sign. The hud also gives a hint at each location, which is very helpful. Once you’ve visited each location, found the source of infinity, you’ll be teleported to a gift room with about 20 or so FREE gifts from the participating stores. If it’s been a while since you explored Second Life, a hunt like this is a great way to discover new stores, and to check out what’s happening at stores you know. You must do the hunt in order, and you must find the hidden infinity at each location to gain access to the prize room. This hunt ends November 21, so don’t wait, bring a friend and have some fun!

I have to admit, the gift I was most interested in is this stunning fantasy skin from Fallen Gods. I was immediately in love with the ethereal look of this skin. Fallen Gods also happens to be the start location for The Eternal Hunt, you can pick up the hunt HUD there and start your journey to find the source of infinity at each location. Once you’ve reached the end prize room, this skin called “Sidera Starborn” from Fallen Gods is one of the several FREE gifts. This incredibly generous gift includes a full skin set for both men and women. The set includes the system skin in a full version and a PG version, and appliers for just about everything. There is an applier for Slink body, Slink Hands & Feet, as well as a Slink Nail applier so you can perfectly match your nails to this beautiful skin. Also included are appliers for TMP head and body, Omega compatible bodies and heads, Loud Mouth, the Soul Uni Ear, and the Soul Mer Ear.

Another of my favorites from the hunt is the FREE gift from EMO-tions. This gorgeous hair includes a color/size change hud, and these incredibly detailed horns. The horns have a few color change options within the hair hud as well. You can also wear the hairstyle without the horns all together. I really like that this style is pulled up and away from the face, and is long and full down the back. The style is called Love War, which I think suits it well. The color change hud includes shades of black and white, including some silver/grey tones in the middle and a few “faded” options as well. I thought the silver fade option went really well with the skin from Fallen Gods, but honestly all of the colors are pretty.

Next, I think these earrings from OXI are so versatile. They are also a FREE Eternal Hunt prize. They include a texture change hud with a few color options for the gems, and the metal parts of the earrings. I could see these being worn as part of a fantasy look like this one, or something modern and urban. Not to mention that these great geometric shapes are so in right now. I love them.

I picked one last gift to show  from the slew of FREE Eternal Hunt gifts, and it’s this beautifully unique art statue from Balderdash. This “Moonbranch” sculpture has an otherworldly magenta glow that seems to make the hanging crystals shimmer and shine. It makes me think of witchcraft and alchemy. I thought it would be really beautiful standing in a garden, or as part of a fantasy setting of some kind.

Winter 1

I hope you enjoy these fun hunt finds as much as I have, there are many more FREE gifts to be had, this was just a small sample. For more information about The Enternal Hunt, you can head to the start location at Fallen Gods and pick up information along with your stamp HUD.

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

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!

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

The Evil Queen & The Good Queen

The Evil Queen

Throughout fantasy, fairy tales, and folklore the struggle between good and evil has always been at the heart of many tales. Two of the Recolors of Spring Hunt gifts at Apple May Designs hint at such stories, the Evil Queen dress, and the Good Queen dress. Inspired by the dresses at AMD and my own love of fantasy, I am excited to share with you an Evil Queen, and a Good Queen. I hope you like them as much as I do!

The Evil Queen’s dress is one of 4 female 1 linden Recolors of Spring Hunt prizes hidden around the Apple May Designs main location. I love that the dress has a fitted bodice and a short full skirt. In my opinion this silhouette is perfect for a fantasy look. The red and black fabric has a satin-like look to it, and I had no problem wearing this fully mesh dress with my Maitreya Lara body. The Evil Queen dress comes in standard sizes and includes a matching alpha layer.

Today only, Glam Affair has out a pack of three gorgeous skins for 50 lindens as their Fifty Linden Friday item. One of these skins I thought was perfect for my vision of the Evil Queen. The Sia skin in the India tone with her dark red lips is just stunning on and has the right combination of beauty and drama. Not as into this skin as I am? There’s bound to be one you will enjoy between the three tones (India, America, and Artic). Not to mention that at just 50 lindens for all 3, you kinda can’t go wrong!

Here are the Evil Queen’s Details, Enjoy!

The Good Queen

While I’m generally more inclined toward the darker fantasy characters, I have to admit I love this interpretation of the Good Queen. I envisioned something a little ethereal and I think I achieved such a look. I hope you love it!

Just like the Evil Queen, the Good Queen’s dress is a 1 linden RSH prize at Apple May Designs. This version is a beautiful white material with the same satin-like look and faint pattern of the black and red Evil Queen version. These dresses really are lovely on. For some diversity (and because I had the right skin appliers) I wore my Slink Physique body with the dress, and again had no issue. This dress also comes in standard sizes and can be worn using the provided alpha layer.

Additionally, I picked up some gorgeous past group gifts at NSP Florals. There are many gifts still available at NSP Florals, one of which is this enchanting Lady Gwynevere headdress in Sublime Mint. The headdress is a past FREE group gift that can still be found in the NSP Florals/MUSE VIP Room. The NSP Florals group is just 75 lindens to join, and you gain instant access to all the available gifts. Another beautiful FREE gift at NSP Florals are these lovely heels. Called the Peony Stilettos, these fantastic shoes are meant to be worn with Slink High feet. Also, they can be worn with or without the flower and crystal embellishment. Again, you’re able to get the shoes and the headdress at NSP Florals with just one group join fee of 75 lindens, not to mention the slew of other equally awesome gifts!

Here are the details for the Good Queen, Enjoy!
