Morning Joe

Morning Joe1

A little Carson in your cup….

I spent all of yesterday following the path of the Men’s Only Hunt 9. I hate to admit it, but I remember the first one…  Anyhow, I’m wore out and need some java to get the blood pumping and the brain thinking. So it’s off to the local coffee shop for a dose of my favorite morning brew.

A tall Red Eye with medium fat milk…

The Men’s Only Hunt 9 is a  50 store hunt will net you all kinds of free, yes I said FREE gifts. You can start the hunt by picking up a teleport HUD at the Flair For Events office and head out on your own. So here I stand in my new look from the hunt. My Dandy Jacket is the gift at AR2 Style. I found the Harness Pants at Breathe ( you can chooses either red or black harness straps). The gift at FE Style is the adjustable Wagner Flat Cap. My Moonlight Necklace is the hunt gift at Obscure and the Caravalli Glasses can be found at Mulloy. Even my pose, Hipster is a hunt gift from PosESioN. So how do I take my coffee? Regular and back… no fancy-schmancy ordering for me.

The Men Only Hunt has proven lucrative. This morning I picked up these FREE Funky Jeans by AR2 Style, which is their contribution to the hunt. No, I’m not trying to insult the style… that’s the name of the Jeans. These excellent quality mesh jeans come in all the standard mesh sizes and the texture is spot on. They are definitely worth picking up.

I also discovered that several pose stores are giving gifts as part of the hunt. Dark Magic Poses is a new-to-me pose store, and there are not necessarily an abundance of quality men’s poses available on the grid. I was really pleased with their FREE hunt gift — this Justin Pose pack. I’m showing you Justin 02 to give you an idea. There are three top quality poses in the FREE gift if you hunt down the prim beer.

I also passed up my usual tattoo this morning in place of this one by Facade that caught my eye. It too is a FREE hunt gift as part of the Men Only Hunt and is called Befallen Stars. As part of this generous gift you will get a system layer tattoo as well as appliers for Omega, Slink, TMP, Adam, and Signature. I applied it easily to my Slink mesh body.

Happy Hunting!

The Men’s Only Hunt Part 2

whc moh 4c_001

This week I will share with you even more of the wonderful prizes I found on the FREE Men’s Only Hunt! The hunt object you are seeking resembles the item I spend a lot of time seeking in real life, a tall golden glass of beer. The hunt is not difficult and ends on September 13th, so this is your last chance to get your share of these fantastic items.

Let’s start with a pic that actually cools me off just looking at it! Just imagine the cool breeze coming off the water and rustling through the lush greenery, as yet untouched by the wicked embrace of Fall. I am wearing the FREE Men’s Only Hunt Gift from ::K::. The Villa Vest Homme Marsala is a beautifully made mesh T-Shirt and vest combo in a color combination that makes looking cool and breezy, well… a breeze. When I opened it I was surprised to see only a single size similar to FitMesh in the box, and that did concern me, until I put it on. It fits my avy and my small array of test shapes very well! I found the white and pastel pink combination pairs easily with a variety of pants. It’s that versatility of looking good with a wide range of other clothes that makes this a standout garment. For this picture, I chose casual beige chinos from my inventory made by Larnia Couture Designs. I am very pleased with the way the outfit came together. One final note about this item: Included in the box is a female version. So, once again, even though the name of the hunt says “Men’s Only” there are a few gems to be had for the ladies as well.

The Hair I am wearing is a FREE hunt gift from Mina Hair. Their hunt prize for the Men’s Only Hunt is a high quality men’s hair named “Mark” offered in a selection of greys and in both materials enabled and non-materials enabled versions. I like the look of it quite a bit despite the fact that my avy doesn’t usually wear grey hair. The greys are accessible via an easy-to-use hud and Mina Hair has generously left it manually tintable so you also have the option of manually tinting it to further personalize your look. This is a very handsome hair and highly worthy of extra attention from everyone!

As always, this Men’s Only Hunt had a wide variety of items for male avies all over Second Life. So, if chilling on a rowboat on a glassy lake isn’t your thing then maybe this excellent camouflage T-Shirt is more your fashion. The FREE hunt gift from AR2 Style, the Military V-Neck Shirt is a muted camo pattern Tee that looks considerably masculine while maintaining its relaxed styling. The prize includes three sizes plus one in fitted mesh, so fit should be no problem at all. If you are lucky enough to have a mesh body from The Mesh Project, there is a version included for you too. You might not look like a soldier wearing it, but you will definitely look like you can take care of yourself. Truly, that’s all the spiders in my bathroom need to know. This time, it’s WAR!

Also, in my somewhat surreal military patrol pic is another laudable FREE hunt prize from the Men’s Only Hunt. Offered by Le Poppycock, the “Summer Is Dead” Pose comes with props, including the non-firing weapon that is in my hands, and a surfboard with some bullet holes and a bit of blood on it. It is well done and fits superbly into the general theme of the hunt (The End Of Summer).

Music lovers will love the Sound-Man T-Shirt, especially if they have a love of Eighties music. Emblazoned on this T-Shirt from V-Spot is one of the great icons of the Eighties, Pac-Man! Given a slight makeover and sporting some serious head phones, this icon has returned in a soft-looking, well-textured Tee, just the kind I love the most. It is extremely realistic and could appeal to those of us with retro leanings, dj’s, or just people who love music. No matter who you are, this FREE hunt prize will turn at least a few heads your way on the grid.

On my wrist, I am showing off another great FREE hunt prize from the Men’s Only Hunt! The “Sinister” Cuffs from Rebellion are a matching set (left and right) studded black leather bracers adorned with a gothic style cross. The look is very rock and roll, although they are perfectly acceptable gothwear if that is your preferred style. This hunt really did have something for everyone!

These new tattoo sleeves from Swagged Out are yet another FREE hunt gift from the Men’s Only Hunt. I love tattoos that leave plenty of skin unadorned, so a sleeve tat like this is an excellent choice. It covers the arms while leaving the chest and back open either for another favorite tattoo or for a display of gloriously bare skin. The “Good Fortune” tattoo package is offered in faded or fresh ink and includes appliers for TMP, Slink, Signature, Omega and Niramyth bodies.

I have to ask you to take a closer look to see the last item for this week. Click on the above picture to get into my flickr then click one more time to see the close up image. My usual face was used in the military patrol pic, but in the Pac-pic if you look closely at my face, you can see I am wearing an additional item. This fantastic bit of magic is from Unorthodox and is their FREE hunt gift for the Men’s Only Hunt! The Miyagi Facial Hair has 4 facial hair options and comes with the resizable prim beard. The effect on me was to give more definition to the facial hair i already had while adding a prim beard to give me a more updated look. The hunt prize also comes with a Hud, a TMP applier and instructions making this a very generous package for us hunters to snap up. Hunt prizes like this are rare, and if you are a male avy on SL you should go get this free gift immediately. One day, it just might be the perfect thing to give you that extra realistic look.

The hunt kept me busy and I am sorry to see it end. It was another great men’s hunt and, although sometimes I worry about the decreasing availability of quality low cost items for male avies on Second Life, hunts like this help to dispel my fears. There are still a great deal of wonderful items for FREE or very low cost for male avies, you just need to have patience and enjoy the process of hunting for them. Until next time, happy hunting and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler
