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)

It’s always refreshing to see Designers offering high quality gifts for the men of Second Life.  As Ms. Aline said in her report on the Access Event, the men have not been ignored when it comes to gifts. Nearly every vender of men’s wear has set out a very nice surprise for us. And as Ms. Aline also said: beware the lag! Cam Shopping is the way to go.

All Access

All  of the following items are free at the Access Event when you join the free group. Just wear your tag and help yourself.

Let’s start with my decision not to shave today. Or should I say, selectively shave today. This suave razor cut is from Fe Style. Facial hair style ‘V. GG’ comes with a Catwa and an Omega applier.

Like the shades? These Steampunkish glasses are the ‘Epic Glasses’ from Noir. You’ll get a huge HUD to change every surface to your choice of one of four metal colors. A note here as well on the solid quality of the build. Every detail is spot on.

I know a lot of men don’t like jewelry but I’m not one of them. Like most things in life, it all depends on the quality of the piece. This pendant from Aitui fits the bill perfectly. This is the “Forged Steel Snake” in a deep mahogany color. The necklace is completely resizable to get a correct fit on any body.

Last but not least, my pose is from “Wrong” but it is so right. “W33” comes in four variations and includes a cigarette for the pose. (Don’t tell Juli… she hates smoking) I’ve included a picture of all four poses for you perusal.

In a Mood

In a Mood

It’s not always easy to find good free or almost free things for the men of Second Life. Sometimes, I skip entire events because I just know there’s nothing there for me. I very glad I didn’t skip this round of Cosmopolitan.

Hats off

Or hats on… this is the “Weatherman” from Bondi and it’s the free gift at Cosmopolitan. The hat is technically ‘unisex’ but don’t take this from me. The hat is completely resizable and repositionable so you can get the perfect fit. Just join the Cosmopolitan free group and pick up your gifts.

On the Hunt

In my never ending hunt for men’s fashion, I scour the Hunts each month and this month has been productive. I stumbled on the ‘Red Shoe Diaries’ “Little Black Book Hunt and it has not one but two tracks just for the men. One track, the one I’m showing prizes from, has a 1L price tag for each gift and the second track is 25L per prize.

First up is the “Cole” shirt from The Sissy Bar. As with everything I’ve seen from this designer, Cole is well made and subtly textured. Well worth the 1L and the time hunting.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Jake
  • David
  • Exmachina – Davide
  • Signature – Gianni, Gerault
  • SLink – Physique

Classic Jeans

Next up on the RSD/LBB Hunt are the “Bridgeport Jeans” from Horr Menswear. I really am impressed with these jeans. Jeans are such a staple of our wardrobe, it can be easy to toss out subpar pairs and hope no one notices. Horr Menswear has done just the opposite: they’ve made a first rate pair of jeans. Every detail is perfect and the texture couldn’t be better. And it’s still just 1L and a little hunting.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza Jake
  • Classic Mesh – XS-XL
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink – Physique
  • TMP

Beach Weekend, Part 2

Beach weekend, Part 2

I have to admit, I am enjoying this beach weekend idea of Julianna’s. There’s nothing like the surf and sand and soaking in the sun. Of course, one must look good even while one is being very… very lazy.

Don’t waffle on this one

Waffles, the clothing shop not the breakfast, has a great tank top perfect for being lazy on or off the beach. This is the “Summer Surf Hank Jersey” and it’s the 1L prize for the Summer Lovin’ Hunt. Just find the blue flip flop hidden in the store and it’s yours.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • SLink
  • Jake
  • TMP

Late Night Swim


Late Night Swim

Hey There Fab Free! Welcome to the blog. I think that Blue and I are going to spend as much of the SL summer as we can in swimwear, and I think you should consider doing so also. haha Luckily the Siren’s Song hunt has started and we were able to pick up another matching set of swimsuits for free. The free gear by Dragonmoon Designs also made the perfect excuse for a late night swim, which is possibly one of my favorite warm weather activities.


Late Night Swim 2

F Hint – “Get Lucky”

M Hint – “It’s all Greek to me.”

These free SSH gifts are just waiting to be found at Dragonmoon Designs. They both come in several sizes and include a color change hud with 3 color choices for some added style options. Each prize is hidden separately, but with the provided hints they shouldn’t be too difficult to find. The hunt object is a sand dollar.

Swim Trunk Sizes: Standard Mesh (xs-L), Adam, Aesthetic, Slink, Belleza (Gianni,Jake), TMP *No Alpha Included

Bikini Sizes: Classic/Standard Mesh (xxs- L), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara *No Alpha Included

P.S. The skin Blue has on is a free group gift at 7 Deadly Skins. You can get it with your 7DS group tag. The group is also free to join at this time!

Just Breathe

Just Breathe

Men’s wear has been somewhat… scarce of late. So I was rather pleased to find a really well made gift set out for the men of Second Life by Breath. There’s also a second jacket and shirt set out that is a mere 50L. I, in fact, helped myself to both generous offerings. You won’t even need a group tag for this one. Thanks, Breath.

Just breathe

There are four versions of the “BB Jacket” set outside on the wall of the Breath store. But at 0L, you can pick up all of them. Each one has a different sleeve design or color. Take a moment, while you’re there, to browse the store. I found the prices to be reasonable and the selection was great.

Sizes Included

  • One size fits all
