Did You Hear That?


Did You Hear That

Friday the 13th is the perfect day to go camping, right? Surely nothing sinister would happen… I can just hear the iconic “something bad is about to happen” music starting to play! I love a classic horror flick, so when Blue showed me these Camp Crystal Lake tees by ZFG (Zero F*cks Given) I had to share them with you; today being Friday the 13th is just the icing on the cake.

The matching his and hers shirts are the free Twisted Hunt prize at ZFG. When hunting be wary of the decoy boxes the Twisted Hunt is famous for. The Twisted Hunt runs through the end of the month, so you have some time to get things figured out. There are no hints either, so I can’t help you there. To get yours, you’ll have to head over to ZFG and hunt it down! The male and female version are in the same box.

Men’s Shirt Sizes: Aesthetic, Belleza Jake, Signature (Geralt, Gianni), Slink, Standard Mesh (xs – XL) + Alpha Layer

Women’s Shirt Sizes: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), TMP, Standard Mesh (xs – XL) + Alpha Layer

There’s a whole wonderfully weird wild world out there and I’m proud to be living in it, even when things get heavy. To some the crowded city with its miles of pavement might seem bleak. I find the vast concrete jungle to be full of art and adventure, especially when I’ve got my partner in all things by my side. Clothing being an excellent form of artful expression; my corset top and his vest from BYRNE spoke loud of love as we spent the evening together just wandering the streets and exploring the underground of Tokyo Windhill City.

As Stan reported a few days ago, The latest issue of L’Homme is out. With the Fifth anniversary issue comes a selection of gifts for the readers. To become a member of the free L’ Homme Reader’s group, simply tap the sign at any of the participating designers. Then help yourself to the gifts. Don’t forget to peruse the issue itself at L’Homme Magazine Second Life.

Brights and Bold

I had to help myself to this well tailored shirt from Meva as soon as I saw it. This is the ‘Marcus’ dress shirt and it is part of a set offered to the L’Homme readers. The shirt comes with a pair of matching pants. It’s called orange but I see it more as a sunshine yellow. It made me think of tropical vacations and margaritas in a sidewalk café. So that’s exactly where I’m headed off to.

The Promise of a Kiss


Promise of a Kiss

Sometimes that moment right before a kiss is just as exciting as the kiss itself. I got the chance to spend some quiet time with my handsome guy, needless to say the beautiful atmosphere at The Village of Ahiru lent itself nicely to a romantic moment or two. For our little date-night excursion Blue and I wore the free Medieval Fantasy Hunt gifts from Roped Passions. Keep reading for more info about each of these fabulous free gifts, and one extra not part of the hunt.

The men’s and the women’s Medieval Fantasy Hunt prizes at Roped Passions are packaged together. As previously mentioned, the MFH is a free hunt so the prizes won’t cost you anything. The hunt object is a little potted bonsai tree. The men’s gift is the cool Asian print shirt Blue has on, while the women’s gift is the long floral print dress I’m wearing. It also has a high slit in the front that can’t be seen in the above photo.

Time is Fleeting

It's About Time

This is going to be fast one from me. I wanted to make a ‘quickie’ joke but Julianna forbid it. So I didn’t.  At any rate, this is the last twenty four hours of the Star Spangled Hunt put on by Sweet Intoxication. So if you want any of the 1L prizes, you’ll need to hurry.

About Time

This is the Tygren Shirt with the “Time Rose” pattern. It is the gentlemen’s prize on the very first stop on the Hunt: at Sweet Intoxication. I am rather impressed with the old school vintage tattoo look of the design and I foresee wearing it often. As I said, if you want to pick up this excellent shirt for yourself you need to hurry along before the Hunt ends tomorrow.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aestheti
  • Belleza Jake
  • Classic Mesh – S-L
  • Signature – Geralt, Gianni
  • SLink
  • TMP

Horsing Around


Horsing Around

We are closing in on mid-week and I think it’s time to take some down time, and maybe play a little HORSE. For this post I picked up the Beached Bunny Hunt 9 prize at Freda, and my handsome guy picked up the July group gift at R2A. I think we look great on the court in our red and black. I also picked up this cute pose for just 15 linden on the Marketplace. Keep reading for all the what, where, and how.

Freda Beached Bunny Hunt 9 Prize –

My top and matching shorts are the BBH9 prize at Freda. They are cute as can be, and can be worn together or separate. The BBH9 is a dollarbie hunt meaning all prizes are just 1 linden. The hunt will run through the end of the month, so you’ve got a little time to hunt down this outfit at Freda. The outfit comes in the following sizes: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Ocacin, Voluptuous, and a “Classic Model Size M.” No alpha layer is included however. You’ll be looking for a beach pail full of sand.

Hint – Do not spread all that sand over the work table when picking your gift!

R2A July Group Gift –

The top and matching athletic shorts Blue has on are the free July group gift at R2A. This gift comes with a color change hud for some customization. It also happens to come in quite a few sizes, including some sizes for child/teen avatars. The following sizes are included with this free group gift at R2A: Signature Gianni, Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza Jake, Nx – David, Tweenster, Toddledoo. The R2A group is also free to join at this time.

Vetro Poses Basketball Pose – 

Vetro Poses has quite a few inexpensive poses available on the Marketplace. I picked up their “Couple Playing Basketball 02” pose for just 15 linden on the Marketplace. This pose includes the his and hers poses, along with a basketball, and the option to have a basketball goal (not shown) included with the pose. I wanted to use a different basketball with this pose, so it was derendered and a different ball put in its place.

Day into Night

Day into Night

After all of Juli’s posts about how great the SL16B gifts are, I had to check it out for myself. I braved the lag and found a few nice gifts for us guys.

A to Zed

I saw these great shoes were the gift Zed was offering and I was so intrigued, I had to check out the rest of their offerings. I’m rather pleased I did. There are several gifts scattered about the shop. A very smart high necked sweater with a large HUD of colors and this full ensemble suit. I like the unusual choice of a tee shirt instead of a collared shirt and a chain necklace instead of a tie. Sometimes edgy is a good thing.  The ‘Lovers Day’ suit comes with the blazer and shirt combination, the pants, the dragonhead chain, a bracelet and it’s own set of shoes. There is also a matching cocktail dress for the ladies on the women’s side of the shop.

Sizes Included

  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza
  • Classic Mesh – S-L
  • Signature – Geralt, Gianni
  • SLink
  • TMP
  • Shoes – SLink and Standard

Head to Toe

Now, about these shoes. The ‘Winklepicker Pikes’ ( it’s a style of shoe or boot worn from the 1950s onward by British rock and roll fans.) are Zed’s official Second Life 16th Birthday Celebration Free Gift. The generous Zed has given us the entire fatpack of the shoes so you should find a color and style that suits your every outfit.

Sizes Included

  • SLink
  • Standard (Resizable)
