Hello FabFree Folks!

Hope

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

Sunday Driver!

whc illi car 6_001

whc illi car 3_001

Hello everyone and happy Sunday to all of you! The Menstuff Hunt hunt is still on and I have gotten a huge amount of stuff from it that is blog worthy. Much of it I have not even posted yet! So, I strongly urge you to roll up your sleeves and take a shot at hunting on Second Life. It can be a highly rewarding pastime.

Angel DELUXE is offering the smart-looking outfit above as their free prize on the Menstuff Hunt. The prize is rather comprehensive, so this is a breakdown of what Angel DELUXE is giving you for free. The Mesh Menstuff Jacket & Shirt is a one piece combo featuring the jacket, shirt and tie! The colors are surprising to me and look fantastic together. This is a highly handsome piece of mesh and is provided in five sizes. The Menstuff Jeans – Bootcut come with it and are blessed with excellent texture and a beautiful deep blue color in addition to the fact that being bootcut will make it easier to wear them over much of the footwear in your wardrobe. That makes them an excellent addition to your quickly-expanding inventory. Separate from the jeans is the Menstuff Belt. It is one of the best-looking men’s belts I have ever seen on SL: nicely textured brown leather with a metal loop and buckle which are perfectly proportionate. Sadly, it is not shown in the above pictures. The jeans and belt both come in two fitmesh sizes and three mesh ones, so fitting will not be an issue. One last item is in this gift, a handsome pair of military boots. Simple, yet good looking, they make an excellent bonus for an already unskippable stop on this year’s Menstuff Hunt.

One of my favorite places to get men’s shoes on Second Life is Illi. When I am not modeling something for the blog, many of the shoes I wear come from their store. When I saw that Illi was participating in the Menstuff Hunt, I knew I was going to pick up something I would enjoy greatly. The Stanley Sneakers in Blue are a cool-looking men’s sneaker to be sure, but it is what is in the box that impresses me most. Illi has included in this free gift: versions for classic avatars, Aesthetic avatars and Slink Feet! I am wearing the Slink Version in this picture, a rare pleasure for me to be able to model Slink shoes since for men they tend to be costly. So, not only are they a great sneaker, this is a chance to pick up shoes that might be handy should you ever move up to Mesh feet or a Mesh avatar. For that reason alone, this is a must pick up! Thank you very much Alphonse for another great item!

Finally, in the pic above I am showing off a Calavera SS Stock car from Zenit Designs. This free Menstuff Hunt prize is different from most that I show off in that it is a toy that you can play around with. I may be clothes obsessed (among other things) but there is more to Second Life than just what to wear. Taking a car out for a spin can be great fun! The Calavera SS Stock has classic muscle car styling and drives via a hud. One thing is for sure: the fun you will get out of it could likely make this a wonderful find for you!

whc winter camo scarf 2_001

Once I took the pictures of the car, I realized they did not show off my hair well. These things happen when you wear black hair in front of a dark brick wall! Although I have previously shown off the Damselfly Menstuff Hunt Gift here, The Hitch Non-Rigged Mesh Hair certainly could use added attention. It comes in 20 textures select-able via easy to use hud, and hopefully showing it in a lighter tint might garner it the attention such a nice 1L hunt gift deserves.

EccentriciXi‘s free gift for the Menstuff Hunt should help keep us warm until the last of the SL snow has melted. The Stuff Hunt Sweater&Scarf and Chinos is a two piece outfit with a camouflage theme. The Sweater&Scarf is one piece of Mesh, the sweater being a solid dark green with a nice cozy texture and the scarf having a camo texture. Since the sweater does not carry the camouflage texture, its look is well-balanced. I like how the sweater does not carry the camouflage texture, if it had that and I went walking in the woods no one could ever find me. The Mesh chinos bear a dark camo texture that looks realistic, a garment that is valuable to own in a regular wardrobe if you are a fan of that look. Both pieces come in five sizes each for a trouble-free fit, and make up a wonderful free Menstuff gift.

That’s it for me for now, but I will be in touch soon. I still have tons more to show you from Menstuff as well as the Jack or Jill Hunt. Now is an excellent time to be a male freebie/cheapie hunter on SL, I hope you can take advantage of it! Til next time, have fun and I will see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Free Accessories Day Continues!

whc accessories2_001

Free Accessories Day is underway and I wanted to put in another quick post to show off some more cool items. Many thanks are in order for Pru, who pointed me in the direction of a fantastic jewelry store called Tantalum and their exceptional Jack Or Jill Hunt prize.

The Xue Necklaces from Tantalum comprise a set of two distinct, unisex necklaces offered as a single free Jack Or Jill Hunt gift. They look awesome! The shorter necklace has a small silver skull on it while the longer one has a crystal pendant. Each necklace comes with color change scripting included with its resizer that enables you to choose between 7 metal textures for the chains and 19 different textures for the crystal. The hunt object for The Jack Or Jill Hunt looks like a small black hockey puck. It was not the easiest find, but it was worth every second I spent looking for it!

The super-detailed unisex leather cuff I am wearing is also from Tantalum. The Loco Bracelet is a free group gift and is superbly made. It comes in left-hand and right-hand versions and truly looks like it’s crafted out of leather and pewter! There is no chance this is not going to be in my wardrobe for a long time.

Lastly, I don’t know if this item actually counts as an accessory, but I don’t care. B*FLY‘s free prize on the Menstuff Hunt is the Fallen Tattoo. It is an excellent, tough-looking sleeve design which is so good I couldn’t resist including it in the picture! It comes with appliers for Adam, Slink and TMP and is a great tattoo to add to your collection.

That’s it for me today. I hope your day has gone as wonderfully as mine has. If you are hunting, always remember to keep your eyes peeled for group gifts, MM boards, and other items. It is always nice to find a special surprise you might have otherwise missed. Take care everyone and I will see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Happy Free Accessory Day Everyone!

whc unknown comic 2_001

I hope you had a memorable Valentine’s Day, however you chose to spend it. Today Fab Free is putting up freebie and cheapie accessories that deserve a moment in the spotlight. Hopefully, something we love will strike your fancy.

One of my favorite stores, Kauna is well known for high quality men’s clothing. So, it came as a shock to me when I found the Paper Bag Head in their marketplace store! For only 10L, it comes with 9 textures and a matching hand puppet! Relive your fleeting moments of fame as the unknown ventriloquist, and laugh yourself silly!

I am currently covering the great Menstuff hunt, and one of the coolest accessories is this free Celtic Necklace from Timeless Designs. Originally posted here, there isn’t a great deal more to say about it other than it is well made and would complement a wide variety of outfits. The silver beads and cross on the black cord are an extremely masculine look and for free, this is an excellent pick up.

whc 911 2_001

Swagga‘s marketplace store has several very interesting freebies, but my favorite was this highly-detailed ball cap. It was created as a free tribute to the bravery of the first responders of 9/11, and when I laid eyes on it, I was sure it had to be included in this post. First rate work, it is a nice memorial to an exceptional group of people.

Rebellion made the sunglasses in this pic, and a visit to their store will reveal this and four other quality free group gifts! Their system is a little different than most. Pick up the free group gifts you want, then before wearing them put on your Rebellion name tag. When you put the items on while wearing the group tag, the items will be enabled. It is easy to do and for items like these great sunglasses, worth it.

One last (but certainly not least) accessory from the Menstuff hunt I am thoroughly enjoying is the free Sergeant’s Bling Necklace from V-Spot. Simple and extremely masculine, this Menstuff Hunt prize is one that many of us are going to want to pick up. Items like these are great reminders that quality jewelry is not just made for women.

Ok, that is all I have to say at the moment I am off to hunt more bargains. Take care everyone and I will see you on the grid! (and also on Marketplace)—–WHC Riler
