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

I, I Will Be King

whc brocade tiger jeans 2_001

I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing, will drive them away
We can beat them, just for one day
We can be heroes, just for one day
– David Bowie

Hello everyone and welcome to my extended Menstuff Hunt coverage! Menstuff is a lL hunt, but many of the stores on it have waived the fee, so it is an especially economical hunt to do. The object to look for is shaped like a blue T-Shirt. Today we will look at a few items from the hunt, and then I want to share something that is very special to me personally.

I love Brocade Tiger! They make clothes that are always unique and eye-catching. In other words, they are perfect for people like me who crave a little attention now and then. For the Menstuff Hunt, Brocade Tiger is offering the Tiger Blue Jeans w/Open Belt for free. Dark blue, they are emblazoned with a tiger theme executed to blend in rather than roar out its presence. The effect is a wonderfully subtle yet very artistic pair of jeans. They come in five sizes for a good fit and are available free for all you hot predators out there.

My hair in the above picture is a fantastic Menstuff Hunt prize from Damselfly. The Hitch Non-Rigged Mesh Hair comes with an easy to use hud to select among twenty different color variations. For only 1L, such a stylish hair with a color change hud included is definitely a bargain. Included in the box is a hairbase in ten colors and a TMP applier. That makes this Damselfly Menstuff prize an extremely good pick-up, an attractive and versatile hair that could easily become one of your favorites.

Native Urban offers this sharp looking pair of sunglasses for free on the Menstuff Hunt! I was tempted to save it for the upcoming free accessories day post, but I love the way they look in this picture. The Gold Aviator Glasses look highly realistic, and are handsome enough to be the “go to” sunglasses in your wardrobe. For Native Urban to offer them up as a free gift, is very generous indeed!

Finally, the Timeless Design‘s Celtic Necklace is a decidedly masculine necklace which can also be yours for free on the Menstuff Hunt. Consisting of a braided cord with four silver beads and a Celtic style silver cross, it is a ruggedly handsome item that will be a solid addition to your Second Life jewelry collection.

 
WHC brocade bowie 9_001b

 
David Bowie passed away recently. Having witnessed Bowie evolve through the countless phases and reinventions of himself over the years, it was a little shocking that he actually appears to have been mortal. Then again, many of us have our doubts that he really was. Feeling the loss of him, though, was nothing for me compared to the loss my friend Effie felt at Bowie’s passing. She is a huge David Bowie fan and his death affected her deeply. Because of that, I became inspired by two items currently available at Brocade Tiger: the Flamingo Tux and the Goblin King Outfit in Blue.

Donning a light skin, I made an appropriate shape and went back to Brocade Tiger to see if that incredible Flamingo Tux might still be out from the Femboy Hunt. You might recall, I previously posted about it here. To my knowledge, David Bowie never actually wore anything like it but I can easily imagine him wearing something amazing like this in a video. I am happy to report this garment is still available at Brocade Tiger and only costs 2L! To finish the outfit, I chose Avanti‘s free promo Ziggy Face Tattoo which Pru previously showed off here. It works just as well for men, and for Bowie fans it is a must have item!

The Goblin King in Blue is inspired by Jareth, the Goblin King in the movie “Labyrinth” as played by David Bowie. Offered in dark blue by Brocade Tiger, this free costume totally unleashed my movie nerd side and let it go on a prowl spreading a little Goblin magic across the grid. For lovers of the 80’s, film enthusiasts and David Bowie fans it’s a great pick up!

In closing, Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and perhaps it isn’t in the cards to buy something for someone you care about. Money can be hard to come by for some of us. Maybe it is worth considering other options. From making a graphic in a paint program and uploading it into SL for 10L as a Valentine to giving your avy a look that makes them think of someone they admire, they will cherish your thoughtfulness. Of course, spending time with them can be the best gift of all. However you decide to mark the day, enjoy it! See you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

More From The Menstuff Hunt!

Snapshot12_001

Hello again, everyone! I have some more goodies to share with you from The Menstuff Hunt Hunt! Menstuff is a 1L hunt, although some stores have opted to set their prizes out for free. The entire hunt will set you back less than 34L total for 100 hunt prizes, so it’s a bargain! Look for is a dark blue T-Shirt shaped object with the Menstuff logo on it. Now is a great time to be a hunter.

“Looking sharp”. That is what I would hear if I were standing here with someone else looking at me (although there is always a chance that person isn’t talking to me in the first place). Pure speculation…but not on how good I look; that is fact! B&T Mesh Studio‘s 1L prize for the Menstuff Hunt is this sharp-looking suit which consists of the Mesh Blazer, a white shirt in layers to go under it and matching Mesh skinny pants. It’s a classy look and well executed. If this were all that was included in the hunt prize, B&T Mesh Studio‘s Menstuff prize would absolutely be worthy of a pick up. But, wait! There’s more! They also included a few additional items to make it even more tempting. In the box, there is also a pair of matching sneakers and lowered suspenders, with a distinctively designed texture, which can be added to the outfit for a more casual look. Fit, as usual, should not be a problem with the range of sizes offered, so this is surely a stop on the hunt worth a good look. You will very likely be happy you did.

PBM Enterprise‘s 1L Menstuff hunt gift is a set of eyes in three different colors. For the dress clothing above, I chose the gray ones because they go well with the dark suit I am wearing. The gift is more than just the gray though. It includes these eyes in blue and green as well! The other colors are quite bright and attention-getting. Each color comes in regular system eyes and Mesh ones in case you prefer to wear those. In the picture below, I opted to wear the green ones. As always, if you click each picture twice, that should provide you with a closer look.

Snapshot15_001

Picking up an awesome hunt prize always makes my heart race, and B Barbie Style’s camouflage outfit out right now for the Menstuff Hunt made my pulse speed right up! The camouflage patterned dark green pullover sweater has a stylish, heavy texture that looks warm and toasty. I love the way it is designed with the arms carrying a more linear, non-camo texture, which gives the garment a distinctive flair. The Mesh Cargo pants that come with the sweater match it well, and the textures with the stitching and rivets are top-notch. Together, these garments add up to an excellent Menstuff Hunt prize for only 1L!

Lastly, I have always been a fan of quality boots, and Stone Militaria‘s free gift for the Menstuff Hunt is too impressive not to mention. The Gridwalker Boots are extremely detailed hiking style boots. They are a must pick up since they look quite expensive. Considering Stone Militaria is offering them to you gratis, this is definitely something to jump on! The boots are Mesh and are included in five colors, so they should prove useful for a multitude of outfits. As if you needed any other reason to pick this up…BOOM! Another reason appears before you: even though the boots alone are spectacular, the prize is even more impressive when you find that it includes a polo shirt and cargo pants as well!

That’s it for now. My next Menstuff post is a special one which I have been quietly working on for weeks. While you wait, try a little hunting. It can be fun and unpacking hunt prizes can be a little bit like your birthday, full of excitement as you rip open presents in a frenzy. Until next time my friends, take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Menstuff Ahoy!

whc LKD pirate 1 a

whc LKD pirate1 b

Ahoy Matees! ARGGH…cough, cough, cough. Okay, That’s about the extent of my pirate role-play. It’s the “Argghs” that kill me. It’s hard to sound sexy when you start coughing and flailing your arms wildly in international amateur sign language for “I am ok, don’t call an ambulance”. That can kind of take the sexy out of things.

Luckily, the clothes can bring the sexy back and that’s what I like most about the outfit I’m wearing from Lo Kajirus Designs. The “Like A Pirate Mesh Slave Outfit” Menstuff Hunt gift comes role-play ready for daring adventurers, club hoppers and cabin boys across the grid. It is a highly unique outfit and consists of Mesh pantaloons, jewelry, Mesh eye-patches, a collar (both scripted and non-scripted) and a colorful belt sash. The pantaloons come in five sizes for a good fit, and the accessories are fun and quite attractive. Overall, the quality of the outfit is impressive and for only 1L, it’s a bargain. It doesn’t matter if your pirate vessel is a schooner or a shopping cart, it’s the clothes that make the man O’war! Aye, prepare to be boarded!

Seven Deadly s{K}ins is offering the Menstuff Hunt Bowie Skin in both taupe and walnut tones with and without hairbases as their free hunt prize. Heavily freckled and with super realistic facial hair, they are considerably handsome skins. I was quite impressed with the quality as well as the fact that 7DS also includes appliers if you are lucky enough to have slink hands and feet. The Bowie skin is definitely an excellent pick up for those of us looking for an quality skin upgrade for free!

whc piratecart FE Style 2_001

As I sailed through the calm seas of the Menstuff Hunt, I encountered this wonderful Jacket and Shirt Combo from FE Style. The Wekleh Jacket w/T-Shirt is a one piece mesh evocative of maritime clothes in an entirely different way. The simple, understated styling gives a classic masculine look for any male avi. Offered in four sizes, one of which is Fitmesh, a fine fit without any fuss will be easy to accomplish. Perfect for the dock or the deck, this 1L hunt prize is certainly a first-class item to grab.

The Menstuff Hunt is a 1L hunt but only 31 stores elected to charge for their gifts. The hunt object you are looking for is a blue T-Shirt and can be small, so follow any hints that have been posted on the Menstuff Hunt page. You will not find a better run Men’s hunt on Second Life. So ends this chapter in my Menstuff voyage for now, take care everyone and a quick reminder that Valentine’s Day approaches. Enjoy SL and I will see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

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!

whc winter hana 01

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

Spring Green

Spring Green

Even I have to admit that I’m really ready for spring. Winter may be one of my favorite seasons, but I’m looking forward to green grass, bright flowers, and warmer weather. This super cute crop top and pencil skirt set are perfect for spring. The set is one of several group gifts currently available at Kamiri. The set includes appliers for the top and skirt. Applier options include Omega, Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza in an all-in-one hud. There is also a separate hud for TMP. You’ll also find a mesh skirt part, and system layers in the package. To get this great FREE gift at Kamiri just join the FREE in-world group and wear your tag.

Spring Green 1

Always on the lookout for makeup appliers to use with my Catwa head, I came across a set of brightly colored lipstick Omega appliers on the Marketplace from Glamorize. The colors are perfect for this spring look, and with eight shades to choose from the set is a steal at just 22 lindens on the Marketplace.  There’s even a fun shade of lime green that really matches this dress well, but I just couldn’t resist this cool shade of lavender.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
