Summer is gettin’ hot

Hey There FabFree-ers!

Summer is gettin' hot

I don’t know what the weather is like in your part of the world but in my little patch of the Southern US… it’s hot!  I’m living in shorts and tanks trying to keep my cool. Maybe that’s why I keep finding short sets to show off. And I found a super cute one today. This is the ‘Sky’ skirt and the ‘Jessa’ tank top both from Wicked. And both are free. The Sky denim skirt is the current group gift for Wicked. Sky comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L, SLink Physique and Hourglass, Maitreya and Belleza Isis, Freya and Venus. And if that wasn’t enough, you get two skirts in the box: one with floral pockets and one with plain.

My tank top is also a group gift, one of several past gifts set out for us. Jessa comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and has a good alpha layer.

While you’re at Wicked, be sure to check out the lucky chairs and the Midnight Manias and the Hunts going on. I bet you’ll find something you like!

Heyya FabFree-ers!

I guess I wasn’t quite ready to give up my 4th of July holiday spirit just yet. Especially when I saw the current group gift from Entice.  This is the ‘Yankee Doodle’ tank and shorts set. The set can be worn separately and each piece is controlled by a HUD so you can choose from three colors/patterns. And talk about sizing… each piece comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L, FitMesh sizes XXS-L, Maitreya, SLink and Belleza! There are separate alpha layers for the tank, the shorts and an ‘all in one’ alpha too.

The Entice group is free to join and when you do, you get access to group only Midnight Mania and other fun stuff. Don’t miss the group and non-group Midnight Mania boards, RezDay gifts and the Lucky letter boards while you’re there!

Short and Sweet

Heyya FabFree!

Short and Sweet

I’ve got a quickie for y’all tonight. Quick but sweet! Sweet Tea Couture has this gorgeous bustier top set out for the MidSummer Night’s Dream Hunt for just one little Linden. This is the ‘Wake Forest’ top and it comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and a ton of appliers. You get Maitreya, SLink Hourglass and Physique, Belleza Isis, Freya and Venus, and the Mesh Project. Like everything from Sweet Tea Couture, the Wake Forest is beautifully built and beautifully textured.

I needed something special to show off the neckline of my new top so I headed to the Luminesse Cart at the Bi Annual Cart Sale at the Wash. Ms Astrid showed us the ‘Sleeping cherub’ pendant from Luminesse here first. But the Cart has so many pretty things I had to have the ‘Ornamental Beauty’ necklace and earrings set in fern green and gold for my own. The necklace is fully resizable via script to get your perfect fit.

The MidSummer Night’s dream Hunt runs until July 21st but the Cart Sale ends on July 6th, so don’t delay!

Hello FabFree Folks!

I’ve got a lovely new-to-me designer to share with y’all today. This is the latest Group Gift from Rebel Hope Designs. I just love finding new designers, especially when their work is so well done. Like this cute dress: Amy.  Amy comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and a whole plethora of appliers -> Maitreya, and the SLink Physique + Hourglass, as well as Belleza’s Isis, Freya and Venus.  The HUD allows for ten color changes and four metals. I could go on and on about the great details all over this dress.. even on the back. But I’ll show it off instead.

Hello and Happy Weekend, Fabulous Darlings!

Sunshine

I have a lovely little sundress for you today from Easterling. This is the ‘Milly Dress’ and it’s the 1L prize for the May Flowers Hunt. Milly comes with the tidy little flower embellished belt built in for ease of wear. You’ll find the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL as well as appliers for Maitreya, SLink and Belleza in the prize. The build is just perfect and I love the soft vintage feel of the print. I have a feeling this sundress is going to become a staple in my SL wardrobe.

The May Flowers Hunt runs until May 30th so don’t delay!

Awareness is a good thing

Hello, FabFree-ers!

Awareness is a good thing

I hope y’all are enjoying your weekend full of Spring hunts. I sure am! One of my favorite hunts is back this year: The Autism Awareness Hunt. I love anything that raises awareness of all of the folks on the “Spectrum” since I have two dear friends with little ones with Autism.

First on my list is this cute and sassy dress from Grumble. This is the “Strapless Zipper Mini dress” and it comes in FitMesh sizes XS-XL as well as SLink, Maitreya and Belleza versions.

I paired the dress with Livia’s “My Heart” nails, also for the Autism Awareness Hunt. ‘My Heart’ comes with six designs featuring the Autism Awareness signature blue and puzzle pieces. Livia has included appliers for SLink/Omega and Maitreya combo.

Awareness is a good thing

The twenty two stop FREE Autism Awareness Hunt runs until April 30th!

Grim, And Yet So Pleasant A Find!

whctlb 1

Hi everyone! Sadly, the excellent Jack Or Jill Hunt is over. There is, however, at least one free prize a creator has left out for us straggling hunters, and it is not to be missed! The Little Bat offered the Grim Outfit W/Hud for the Jack Or Jill Hunt containing the Grim Jacket & Shirt shown above. The jacket is a one piece mesh combo featuring a simple denim jacket, well-textured and very realistic-looking over a foreboding skull T-Shirt. The Tee is texture change via included hud and offers you six color choices to choose from. I really appreciate it when designers offer us something with texture change options. It moves the items high up on my “Wanted” list. That isn’t all that is included in this free gift though! The Little Bat also throws in the jeans I am wearing in two styles: Straight and Tapered. Both versions come in five sizes as does the Jacket & Shirt combo, so getting a good fit will be a breeze. Run to get this item, it could be gone any minute!

WHC const vest 1

Pru previously mentioned a store over at the shopping event called Swank here. Swank is a themed monthly sales event and this month the theme is “Luck Of The Irish”! There are free gifts and inexpensive gachas to be found there, so it is worth popping by for a visit. It just so happens when I was over there I found something I liked quite a bit! The Safety Vest – The Boss from Dita Couture is at The Swank Event on a Gacha for only 30L per play. It looks very realistic and while it isn’t something you would normally wear every day, it is definitely a fun item to pick up. It could come in very handy role-playing on Second Life or if you happen to be a male dancer, it could be part of a very sexy stage outfit. Either way, for only 30L it is something that deserves your consideration.

Also at The Swank Event are the free eyes I am wearing this week, the Ivernia Shamrock Eyes from Dulce Secrets. To show off how nice they are, I inset a close up on the top picture which hopefully does them justice. They are offered in both regular and Mesh versions and make for an excellent free gift to pick up. I collect eyes on SL and was thrilled to add these to my collection, I hope you will be too!

That’s it for me, now it’s time to wander off to first life for a while. I hope you all have some fun tonight on the grid, however you enjoy spending your time there. For now I will leave you my friends with my best wishes, have fun and see you on the grid very soon!—–WHC Riler

March Comes In Like A Rabbit!

whc ashburylavarock 1

Happy Wednesday, everyone! Here we are in March with a whole new set of hunts and group gifts to pick up! When you do what I do, the beginning of a new month is always the most exciting period. Don’t forget what they say: March comes in like a rabbit, scurrying around picking up free gifts, and goes out like a rabbit, too! A much heavier one, weighed down with a glut of new inventory items, but still a rabbit!

Ashbury Designs is a very nice place to get male clothes. They are on my list of must visits at the beginning of a new month, and for good reason. Ashbury Designsfree group gifts have a way of making a home for themselves in my inventory and certainly their current one is a fine example. The Ace Military Shirt is a one piece mesh combo. Comprised of an open blue denim shirt with a very subtle camouflage pattern and a black T-Shirt, it is a simple look which looks very real-world plausible. Comfortable looking, it comes in 3 Mesh sizes, 2 Fitmesh and one Fitmesh for TMP bodies. The shade of blue of the shirt is beautiful and the detail and texture is extremely attractive! This is one free group gift you definitely should not pass up.

Lavarock has a new store and I am truly happy to welcome them back! For those of you who read my autobiography, you will recall I became a blogger partially because of a great free group gift Lavarock produced. I simply did not have enough friends on SL to tell about it, so I began blogging! I was thrilled when my editor, Andi, told me there was a new group gift in their store and I assure you it is excellent! The Urban Male Sneakers are a pair of Hi-top shoes for regular avy feet, so everyone can wear them if they like. In fact, since there is a woman’s version out in the women’s area at Lavarock as well, nearly everyone can wear them! They are Mesh and extremely cool. The most spectacular thing about them is the texture change hud! These sneakers come with a MONSTER HUD which gives you access to 15 sneaker textures, 5 laces, 5 tongues, 5 straps, 6 sock variations including hide and 2 sole colors. EPIC work on the hud, Lavarock. Thank you very much! For a free group gift, a hud like this is rare and these shoes are going to be keepers. Go get ‘em, people!

That’s all for me tonight. Rest assured I will be hopping around the grid picking up more freebies and cheapies tomorrow. Until then, I hope you take advantage of all the fun Second Life has to offer. See you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Last Chance Menstuff Hunters!

whc menstuff final 2_001

Hello to all you Fabbies out there! (I prefer Fab Freaks as a nickname but, quite frankly, I am afraid Love will chuck another stapler at me. Her aim is true.) The Menstuff Hunt ends on Monday so this is your last chance to pick up some very nice garments. Since we are out of virtual beer anyway, its time to get off the virtual couch and get out there hunting! I am going to be slightly briefer than usual in order to get this post up as soon as possible, so my apologies in advance to the creators of the impressive items I am showing off. They definitely deserve more individual attention then I can give them today.

That said, The IMaGE Factory is offering the free Tommy Hoodie Combo as their prize for the Menstuff Hunt! While the color looks fantastic in the above picture it is slightly misleading because the garment comes with a huge texture change hud giving the shirt 18 textures, the hoodie 16 and the jacket 12 textures! It comes in five sizes, two of which are fitmesh. Truly an impressive hunt gift, the current hunt hint is “so full of light, but always in shade”.

Swirl Poses made the pose I am using above, part of their 1L hunt prize for the Menstuff Hunt. The box includes five male poses and appears to be a set that I will be able to use for quite a while. If you take pictures on Second Life, you might want to pick this up, it could come in handy.

whc menstuff final 5_001

FashionNatic‘s Brutus open Shirt is one piece of Mesh including the open shirt and the very scary looking skull and crossbones T-Shirt. It looks great, kind of a dark and dangerous look perfect whether you play guitar in a grunge band or stay at home listening to pirated MP3s! Arrrrrrgh, it’s a pirate’s life mateys, pick this free Menstuff gift up and look cool living it.

If you look closely at the above picture you will see I snuck two bracelets into this post. They are the 1L Menstuff hunt prize from Glint. The Leather Bracelet With Metal Rings is the wider of the two and my personal favorite because of the rough masculine look. Both bracelets however are top quality and worth adding to your own personal collections. Click on my pic above twice and you can get a nice close up view of the items. I think you might like them.

The free Menstuff hunt prize from Pics n Poses is a nice pose called Contemplating! As you can tell in the above picture, it is a very natural looking relaxed pose. The best thing about this pose is one day I can use it to show off some really nice footwear, and those poses are hard to find.

This concludes my Menstuff coverage for now. Hurry now, the hunt will end tomorrow. Have fun and enjoy your Second Lives my friends, take care and I’ll see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler
