Hello and Happy Weekend, FabFree. A new to me designer has popped up on my radar for good quality men’s wear today. I was alerted by my group chat for Third Life to a new gift. I know Juli has told you all about the Third Life Group and while there’s a majority of gifts for the girls, we guys have a gift or two as well. You just have to join the group for a small onetime fee of 10L and you’ll have access to loads of designers and those free gifts.

Modern Charm is a new to me designer and I’m very pleased  to have discovered them. There is a group with multiple gifts and a large store. The items are well built and have quality textures. I have a feeling I will be returning to Modern Charm often.  This top is the Paolo Tank and you can pick it up for free with your Third Life Group tag. The tank comes with a HUD with five colors and four graphics you can mix.

Hey FabFree! Can you believe we are rolling so fast towards the end of July? I’ve still got a list of things that need to be done before that! I’ve got Hunts and Fairs and events all stacking up!  So lets get at least one of those going now.

Celtic Love

I love the Celtic history and language and countries. Scotland is my family’s ancestral home both on the Grid and in the Real world. So I had to take part in the Celtic Celebration Hunt.  And since I can’t resist a man in a kilt, I convinced Gabriel to come along.

These are the men’s and women’s gifts from Mystrie for the Hunt : the Aina dress and the Aiden Kilt.  The dress comes as one easy piece and is a lovely build. If you can’t see in the picture, there is Celtic knotwork all down the skirt and the texture in the bodice is so detailed. This will be a staple in my RP closet.

The Aiden Kilt comes in three pieces – the shoes and socks, the kilt and the vest. Gabriel did add the undershirt from his own closet. Again, the details are spot on. The textures are smooth and well made.

The Celtic Celebration Hunt runs until July 29th so don’t wait around to get your Hunt on!

Take a Little Trip

Take a little trip
Take a little trip, take a little trip
Take a little trip and see
Take a little trip, take a little trip
Take a little trip with me

~ Low Rider

It’s way too hot in Texas to stick around. Today, the temp on the car’s dashboard said it was 108 degrees! That’s Way. Too. Hot. Some I had to get away.Take a little trip… as it were.  Luckily, it’s always nice on the Grid. I even found a gorgeous SIM that’s based on the Highlands of Scotland… where even in the Summer… it’s nice and cool.

Take a little trip

I was also pleased to find a great free gift from V8 that is perfect for wandering the Highlands. This is the Roger Urban outfit and it’s free with your Third Life Group tag. To join the Thrid Life Group just click the poster and pay a small one time 10L and there you go. Now, when I say outfit… that’s the whole outfit. You get the sweater plus scarf, the trousers, the fedora and the sneakers. (There’s also a pair of sunglasses that I forgot to put on…) The mesh is a good solid build. I had no clipping issues and it moved well. The colors would be good for Fall or Winter. I have no idea how long this special will last so don’t delay.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature – Gianni

Pit Stop

Pit Stop

ROAD TRIP!!! Well not really, more like a LLllllloooonnnggg drive. Cause these days the car is another place we all feel safe in. To top it off you get a change of scenery and to be outside, for the most part. Have you ever taken a long drive and then pretended you were behind the wheel of another car? Oh! c’mon, you know you have. I myself wish I could be driving and old Hot Rod Roadster, Deuce Coupe hot rod, Ford Mustang, Mercury coupe. Get behind the wheel and feel all alpha male like. I think I’d be more like Arnie Cunningham to be honest.

Alpha Male isn’t all bad. This outfit I have on comes from a store named Alpha Male. I had no idea this store even existed. Until I was opening old Second Life Birthday gifts from last year. Yes, yes.. I’m one of those people in Second Life that has an object folder full of stuff you never open and an inventory from hell. That’s a whole other can of worms we need to keep a tight lid on. I decided to see if it was still around. Yes Alpha Male is, the group is free to join, and they have two male gifts out. These gifts include a whole outfit and shoes. With the one I’m wearing I even got these glasses. The outfit it called Nobody But You, it comes with the Two tone gray Jersey with a tiger design on the front. These leather looking Rogue pants. It also comes with some black leather gold chain sneaker/boot type shoes. Which aren’t pictured, because they only come in Slink. You can make them fit if you alpha your feet. All in all not a bad haul: two complete outfits for free. That doesn’t often happen for guys in Second Life. So ladies grab your guy and point him in this direction. If you do ladies, this store is in the same location as their counter part. Alpha Female and they have gifts too. Guys that are reading this, stop by Alpha Male and check these gifts out. They even have a lucky letter board for the men.

If you don’t mind this pit stop is over. I’m gonna climb back into my Hot Rod and peel out. Yeah, right, I wish. Hey that’s why we’ve got Second Life, I can peel out, and drive any car I like. Smell that rubber and eat my dust people.

No more yielding than a dream

All a Dream

If we shadows have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended:
That you have but slumbered here,
While these visions did appear;
And this weak and idle theme,
No more yielding but a dream,
Gentles, do not reprehend.
If you pardon, we will mend.

 

It was all a dream upon Midsummer’s Night

The Midsummer Night’s Dream Hunt, that is. First my new gown. I am becoming a huge fan of Ari – Pari. Honestly, when I saw this designer was doing the Hunt I may have actually squeaked with a happy. For just 3L and a little hunting you get the beautiful gown with a HUD for eight colors of fabric and six metals for the belt. It’s just gorgeous.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

My Oberon

Gabriel is my Oberon in the “Oberon Set” from Secrets of Gaia. This is also part of the Midsummer Night’s Dream hunt for only 3L. The set also included two sets of horns (Not shown)

Cyber

Cyber

Greetings FabFree.  Much like Juli, I have been sucked into the fervor surrounding the Second Life 17th Birthday. while there are considerably far few items for men, I have found at least one that is a must have for all the RPers. At least the bleak future/cyberpunks.

Future Perfect

This is the ‘Cyber Set’ from Zed for Men and it’s at the SL17B as your free gift. The set includes the vest, two cyber arms ( one left, one right) and a spine attachment. The pieces are all separate so you can wear all or just a piece or two. Any Cyber RP ladies could easily pick this set up simply for the arms and the spine. The set comes in the red I’m wearing as well as blue, cyan, orange, green and black. One note – I accessorized this vest with an applier long sleeved shirt and a visor from my closet, these do not come with the Cyber Set.

Sizes Included

  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature – Geralt, Gianni

Tie Dye

Tie Dye

Hello FabFree. No you aren’t hallucinating… we have two men’s wear posts… in a row! Between all the Access gifts Blue showed you and the huge All the Stuff Hunt, it’s a good day to be a guy on the Grid.

Tie Dye for

The casual shirt I’m sporting is from ZFG for Him. It may seem like a simple gift but the build is really solid. The details are perfect even zoomed in. You also get a HUD to pick one of six tie dye colors and patterns. Just a little hunting and it’s yours.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Legacy
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink

Mix and Match

My next stop on the All the Stuff Hunt was Mishmash Fusion. This is one designer that always provides good “stuff” and this time is no different. Mishmash Fusion has actually put out a complete set of jeans and a tee shirt for us. I picked the jeans to show for two reasons… one, I really like the tie dye shirt and two… anyone can do jeans. Right? Welll, no. Jeans are one of those things you don’t notice unless it’s bad. These jeans from Mishmash Fusion are some of the best on the Grid. The color is right and the details are solid. These are absolutely staying in my closet.

Make Me Feel

Hello again Fab Free’rs, and welcome back to the blog. I just could not resist the opportunity to pair up with the indomitable Love Trill for this post. The MOVE! group gift at ACCESS gave us the perfect opportunity to show off some freebies and some dance moves at the same time. In true friend fashion, we also happen to be twinning in camo shorts from RKKN which are also free at ACCESS. To help pull my look together I added one of the 6 free group gifts at Versov. Watch the video, keep reading for more info, peep the end of the post for full credits, and above all have fun!

ACCESS

Move! put out this fun casual dance as their free ACCESS group gift. Don’t forget you’ll need the ACCESS event group tag to get these gifts. The ACCESS group is free to join. Ladies, you can also pick up these cute camo print shorts by RKKN at ACCESS for free. They come in 3 sizes, Maitreya Lara, Legacy, and Belleza Freya.

Versov 

The Lolitov sneakers I have on are free at Versov. You’ll need the Versov group tag to get them and the other free group gifts. Not to worry though, the group is also free to join. These shoes (like all the gifts) are a full fatpack of colors and include male, female, and unrigged sizes. We’ve shown a few of the other Versov group gifts like the Jumpov sneakers, the Zlatorov heels, and the Sandov slides before. They are all still available.

Hide Out

Hide out

Having spent much of my weekend ‘hunting’ down the gifts for the All the Stuff Hunt on the men’s path, I think some camouflage may be in order. And it does make for a very unique outfit the way Brocade Tiger is using it. This is not just another pair of shorts or snapback.

Hiding Out

Brocade Tiger has given us this complete outfit for the All the Stuff Hunt, “Hidden in Plain Sight”. The outfit consists of a pair of trousers and two tanks – one regular and one with long ripped scratches across the chest. The tanks can be worn separately or together. I love it when designers give the men something more fashion forward and this suits the bill.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Fitmesh
  • Legacy
  • Signature – Gerault, Gianni
  • SLink
