Sunday Driver!

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!

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

Postcards From Paradise!

fish54_001

Greetings from the bay shore Fabbies! I am still on vacation, no use in rushing a return to the rat race. After all, there is plenty for them to eat in my apartment and Rat #4 has definitely developed an attitude lately. Prima Donnas, I have no patience for them. Anyway, it’s much nicer at the shore as you can see from this postcard-pretty scene.

This unique shirt is great for a summer vacation. I have always had a love of fish and aquaria. In real life, I was raised with up to five tanks of tropical fish to be maintained at any given time. When I saw this FREE shirt from EccentriciXi, I knew I had to have it. I love how this shirt just screams “Vacation!” The Fishes Men’s Shirt buttons up the front and has wildly colorful, but realistic, fish printed on a dark blue background that looks great with blue jeans. Also, If I fall off the pier into the ocean, it will serve as camouflage to keep the local sharks from noticing my tasty-looking perfect complexion. I may still look like a seal, but at least I will blend in better, and that could save my tender little pixels. EccentriciXi currently offers this as a FREE group gift. I heartily recommend it for fish lovers all over Second Life.

My jeans are currently on sale at Nevermore Designs. They are the 2015 Dark Navy Men’s Baggy Mesh Jeans, which I chose because the dark blue shade looks fantastic with the shirt. They are a good basic pair of jeans with a wonderful texture, but they are a bit short. So, mostly I would suggest wearing them tucked into boots to take advantage of that. For only 35L, I am quite pleased with the find, and WOW do they look great with the shirt!

My travels on the grid lately led me to Lavarock, one of my favorite stores on Second Life. I frequently go there to check out the group gifts, since most of them I picked up over the last fifteen months have been so great that I decided to blog them. Besides that, I love their style. Sadly, there is no new male group gift as of yet, but I did notice a gacha there for a very reasonable 25L. I try not to spend much money on SL, but knowing there were great odds to get something I would like, I paid the machine and got this cool T-Shirt! While the fish shirt screamed “Vacation!” this shirt literally screams “HeavyMetalRockAndRollTossMeAnotherEnergyDrinkHey,WhereAreMyPants?” That is a lot for a shirt to say, indeed! The shirt has heavy metal iconography emblazoned on an aggressive design, featuring a nightmarish skull that bears a horned helmet and wings. Framed with dark red flourishes, the design seems to be printed on the shirt rather than just stuck over it (a pet peeve of mine that I still occasionally see in some hunt prizes). It is a very realistic, nearly nightmare inducing T-Shirt, and one of six great designs available from the 25L gacha over at Lavarock.

My jeans are part of The Biker Hunt prize from Man Stuff, a division of Firelight Creations. I point them out because they are an excellent item to pick up for a general wardrobe. They look very realistic and fit nicely around the waist so they look great under casual tees like the one I am wearing above. The Cole Straight Leg Jeans in Black might sound familiar, I have several versions of them in my personal “go to” inventory! These come in straight-leg and tapered-leg versions. The straight leg goes especially well over short boots and sneakers. The full hunt prize is only 1L and for that price you get a black shirt with a “Ride Free” biker design, these great jeans, and a pair of shoes. The Biker Hunt ends on July 20th and the item you are looking for looks like a small motorcycle headlamp!

My vacation on the Baja Cove sim is nearly over and I have to tell you, it is even more beautiful than it appears in these pics. Soon I will be packing up the truck and heading back to my small apartment in the city. The rat race is calling and the “Living Room 100” is the biggest racing event of the season. One hundred laps of screeching, clawing action with an entire cheese wheel at stake! My money will be on #4. Until next week my friends, see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler
