An Avalanche Of Menstuff Begins!

whc winter rispetto 01

Greetings from the Arctic Circle! Well actually it’s the East Coast of the United States, but this weekend you can’t tell the difference. We are getting slammed with the white, fluffy stuff as I write this; and with some luck, I just might have electricity on long enough to get this posted!

Menstuff is, in my opinion, the best male hunt of the year. It is a 1L hunt, although some stores have opted to set their prizes out for free! The hunt object to look for is a dark blue T-Shirt shaped object. While they can be small, they are usually not hard to find.

The fantastic Trent Mesh Sweater in Charcoal from Rispetto Designs is where we begin the Menstuff coverage. This sweater has a heavy wool texture to help you look toasty, and the styling is simple and masculine. Click the above picture twice and get a good look at the texture. It’s marvelous! It is offered in five sizes for an easy fit. I found the Mesh looked flawless on me. Also, Rispetto Designs includes the Logoro Mesh Jeans in Blue/Grey in the Menstuff Hunt prize which are excellent and would be a solid garment to have building a casual wardrobe. They are realistically textured and come in five sizes also for a good fit. This is a prize that should not be ignored, especially if you are a new resident to second life! Items like these will have you looking great in no time and for only 1L!

As I said, I have been hit in real life with one heck of a snowstorm! It is extremely cold here, so when I saw the 1L Open Cardigan W/Shirt Menstuff Hunt prize from Hanauma Bay Clothiers, I had to smile. Not only is it super good looking and well made, but it is a mesh piece layering two sweaters! This is a beautiful one-piece Mesh featuring a cardigan style sweater over a pull-over styled one. Offered in five sizes, two of which are fitmesh, it will fit your avy quite nicely. Take it from me, the man wearing his entire real life wardrobe as he shovels the driveway, two sweaters are way better than one! Reminds me of the time I was driving down Lee Highway and a police car came up next to me. I heard the cop’s voice say, “Pull over!” I was so happy, I turned so he could see better and said “And a cardigan too! Hi-5!” It is always nice when someone notices a great looking garment on you.

I debated whether to include the free Beautiful Dangerous Menstuff hunt prize, the Danny Sweater in Paynes Gray in this post or not. Truthfully, were I not racing a certain power outage, I would hold it for another entry. Why? There certainly isn’t anything wrong with the quality or the styling of this great sweater. No, it is simply that I felt the picture does not show it off as well as I would have liked. This is a beautiful sweater, masculine and simply styled to go with almost anything. It appears to be made of lighter material than the heavier texture of the Rispetto sweater, making it perfect when the weather is a bit on the cool side rather than a snowy landscape in the above picture. This is a sipping-brandy-by-the-fire kind of sweater and, as such, is very well executed. It is offered in five sizes for a good fit, and is a welcome addition to my wardrobe. The Menstuff Hunt is a 1L hunt but Beautiful Dangerous has put their hunt item out for free!

All these sweaters would be excellent pick ups and very solid parts of a male avy’s wardrobe. Menstuff has been an excellent hunt for me so far, ranking as the very best in terms of ratio of items kept, versus items deleted. It truly is time to start doing hunts and snapping up some quality goodies! I just noticed that the sound of my teeth chattering reminds me of the old manual typewriter I used to have long ago. Oh the memories! For now I am off to shovel snow and chase any stray penguins out of my yard. Take care, and I’ll see you on the grid (as long as the power stays on)!—–WHC Riler

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – A Summer Trip Around the World

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – A Summer Trip Around the World, originally blogged [HERE].

The Around the Grid 2 Hunt is now in full swing with a long list of participating merchants.  It’s loosely based on the Jules Verne classic Around the World in 80 Days, and so is lasting a total of 80 days, through September 30.  This hunt is a little unconventional in that you won’t get the LM to the next store on the hunt when you find a prize; you have to use the LMs on the AGH2 website.  The other twist to the ARG hunt is that in addition to a $1L hunt prize, many of the stores also have a $25L Gatcha with hunt-themed gifts in them (the gatcha is optional for the merchants).  I won’t be showing you stuff from the Gatchas, but here’s some pictures of some of the fun $1L prizes you can get from the regular part of the hunt.

Not all the shops are adhering strictly to the historical aspect of  Around the World … but even those who are giving more modern prizes are sticking with the idea of summer travel.  I start out my summer trip in the Skull Pump Ride red and black roadster, the AGH2 prize from NR Designs.  It’s a drivable vehicle that comes equipped with some smoke and fire when you hit the accelerator.  And, man, can this baby fly!

NRDesigns_002Unfortunately, as you can see I ran this hot rod off the road, which means I’m going to have to walk until I find a place to get a tow.  I’m headed off in my mesh plaid cargo shorts and tee which I got as the AGH2 prize at Beautiful & Dangerous.

Finding it a little chilly up here in the northern mountains I whip out the mesh hoodie and t-shirt I scored from the AGH2 at Short Circuit.  It captures the around-the-world theme nicely with the world map on the front of the tee.

Short Circuit_001But what do you know?  Just down the road I come upon a cute little taxi, sitting around just waiting for me to drive it.  This Whimsy Taxi is the AGH2 gift from StoraxTree and is also drivable.  Since I’ll be back inside a car again, I can take off the hoodie and try out the Outer Banks shorts and tank top that I got as the AGH2 gift from Euphoria Couture.  Now if I can just manage to keep this taxi from running off the road …..

You’ve Been Tango’d Halloween Edition

YBTHH PatchWork Heart

Hello Fabulous ones! I’ve been away a while, you know those pesky real life excursions, and let me just start by saying I feel like I’ve been gone a month rather than just a few days! There are sooo many things going on in Second Life right now! Being an occasional “boobie” girl in SL, I wanted to check out the Halloween edition of the You’ve Been Tangoed Hunt that started October 18th. Each of the hunt items include appliers for Lolas Tango (some also include appliers for other mesh/prim breasts, and a few also include Phat Azz appliers). Considering the fact that I’m exhausted from a long day, the first outfit I came across was perfect! The above pictured boy-shorties and baby-tee is from PatchWork Heart, it’s their YBTHH gift and like all the gifts costs just $1 linden. It’s just perfect for lounging around the house, being cute and comfy!  Also pictured above is the YBTHH gift from Drop Dead Gorgeous, this stunning skin comes in a porcelain tone and includes appliers for Lolas Tango! Below are a few more of my YBTHH finds! Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
