Evil Bunny

Evil Bunny

I’ve been a Naughty Bunny…

…or I want to be. I found the Jimmy Boxer Briefs at Firelight Creations & Manstuff as part of the Evil Bunny Hunt 7. You can choose to be a nice bunny with a halo or an evil bunny, like me, with the horns. There are nice and naughty eggs to be picked up along the path. So hop your way down the evil (or nice) bunny trail and pick up your $1L Easter treats.

Let’s Talk About Man Stuff

Man Stuff

Guys time to shine…

I truly like hunts that are just for us guys.  I don’t have to find gifts I’ll never wear (really?!? … another pink nightie?) because they are made with the fairer sex in mind. Guy hunts, guy things, guy clothes, guy toys… now that’s what I’m talkin’ about. I spent last night following the hunt path on the For Him Hunt 3. This is the first hunt I’ve completed from beginning to end since I’ve been back and I found out that I am rusty at hunting. But with patience, a bit of luck, and just a few lindens, I completed the hunt and have all kinds of goodies to show you over the next few days.

Fish in a barrel…

This look comes by way of Firelight Creations & Man Stuff (#12 on your dance card if you’re keeping track). The all-in-one Henry Suit can be yours for just $1L if you find the hunt gift in the shape of a wrench (that little bugger blended in so well 😠). This suit, with shoes included, comes with a HUD to to mix and match color combinations, right down to the buttons on the jacket. I went with the blue to match my eyes, but you can pick whatever color suits you.  Oh! And the barrel I’m leaning against… that’s the wearable box it came in, pose included. But have no fear, there is another Boom Barrel in the gift that can be used as decoration or even for target practice. The For Him Hunt 3 runs all through February.

Free as a Bird (or Two)

Be Kind. Even on Your Bad Days

Well, hello there Fabulouses!  On this cool, gray day, Ripley and I set out to explore the Whimberly sim, and we met up with some old friends we had first encountered waddling up a ramp into their washtub pond {HERE} over on the Painter’s Link sim.  As you can see, they are all grown up now, and have migrated to a home of their own away from Mama and Papa.

A Thick, Knitted Sweater to Ward off the Chill

Even though it was a brisk cloudy day, I stayed cozy and warm throughout my visit with Cali and Abigail, thanks to my free sweater from Luziefee.  My Tula knitted shirt is the latest gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members from designer Luzie Cheng of Luziefee.  I discovered three versions tucked inside the package – red, blue, and  green.  Since its bands of cool colors reminded me of the beach glass I used to collect as a child, I opted to wear the green sweater for my photo. Each color pack comes in a variety of sizes from XXS to L, so you are sure to find just the right fit for your avatar.  The texture of the chunky knitting is quite realistic looking!  Also included in the present is a Nail HUD so you can apply perfectly matching striped polish to your fingertips if you so desire.  Sadly, I didn’t notice the polish until after I had snapped my photo.  To add Tula to your sweater collection, simply switch over to your Fabulously Free in SL group tag, pop on over to Luziefee, and click the gift board.  It’s easy and completely free!

Glitter Glass

Ripley must have known I was in a beach glass state of mind, because he approached me with the Powder Blue Glitter Glass Necklace from Evica dangling from his mouth.  He nudged my leg and offered me his Fabulous Find.  As you may already know, my boy has a nose for bargain-priced fashion finds, and today was no exception.  He had discovered this gorgeous piece of jewelry on the Marketplace for a mere 50L.  After slipping the bauble around my neck, I rewarded the pup with his favorite Ripley snack, and we shared a celebratory high-five.

Complete the Look

The other day, when I logged on, I was happy to see an offline IM that had been left by Fabulous Reader, Rowan Carroll, telling me about a nail art shop I had never been to before called The Odd Eyed Cat.  As soon as I read the words “the entire store of appliers is under 75L,” I teleported so quickly Ripley almost couldn’t track me down!  There is an adorable pink, red and black striped Gillian polish on the wall for only 1L (definitely scooped that one up!) and tons of other color combinations for either Maitreya or Slink nails throughout the store.  When I spotted the Tabitha Nail Applicator in Neutral Blankes, I was entranced by its metallic, gleaming finish.  The blue tone was a lovely match for my sea glass sweater.  I only spent 59L for 12 hues of polish in this one package.  It was a great deal!  Thank you for the tip, Rowan! 🙂

Off to Face the Middle of the Week…

I’m so glad that tomorrow is Wednesday, and the weekend will coast ever closer after that.  This week has already seemed extra-long to me, even though it’s only Tuesday!  I’m looking forward to a couple of days off.  Until my next post, happy shopping, my friends!

Hope

Hope is the Thing With Feathers

Hello Fabulouses!  With a smattering of days left in January, Ripley and I decided to dust off his tracking harness, and try our luck at rounding up a few hunt prizes to share with you.   After reading about the Cute and Curvy Hunt 2 in Edi’s posts {HERE} and {HERE}, we opted to put the pupster’s nose to the test over at Firelight Creations first.

What’s at the Center of that Lollipop?

The Cute and Curvy Hunt 2 icon, a lollipop, was indeed cleverly hidden in the Firelight Creations store.  It took some dedication, circling around and around the shop, and searching high and low. I had almost given up in frustration, when Rip gave a sudden tug to the leash, yanked it out of my hand, and bolted off. A mad scramble followed with me trying to keep pace with his flying paws.  I caught up with him as he sat and stared intently at the prize location.  After purchasing the hunt gift for just one little Linden dollar, we teleported home to examine our bounty.  Tucked inside the package, I happily discovered the Nixie Denim Set, a versatile collection of jeans in various lengths from shorts to the full pant style I chose to wear for our photo.  The dark denim jeans are perfect for a casual hike through the woods as Ripley and I chose to do, or they can be glammed up… it all depends on how you accessorize them.  I really liked the realistic denim hue, and the details of the stitching and rivets.  If you’d like to claim this wonderful collection of jeans for yourself, head on over to Firelight Creations before the hunt ends on January 31st.

What’s Included

  • three lengths of jeans, each in distressed and traditional denim textures
  • pants for classic avatars
  • appliers for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink

Here’s the vendor picture so you can see all the trousers that are included in this prize pack:

Perfect Plaid Poncho

With the chilly winter temperatures, I wanted a warm and cozy top to wear as Rip and I explored the picturesque Winter Trace sim, and the Outlet Marketplace Hunt prize from AmAzInG CrEaTiOnS was ideal.  Thick and comfortable, with a cheery pink, red,  and burgandy plaid pattern, this poncho wrapped me in stylish comfort.  It buttons on the side of the neck and is long enough to ensure my tummy is shielded from any winter breezes traipsing around.  From the hunt prize picture, it looks like the texture of the poncho can be modified, but since I love red, I opted to keep it in its original form.  Also included in the prize package is a long sleeve dress, but I chose to don only the cape.  One nice thing about this hunt is Ripley and I didn’t have to circle around, hunting through a physical store.  All we had to do was peruse the AmAzInG CrEaTiOnS Marketplace shop.  It didn’t take long at all to locate the hunt gift, add it to my cart, and check out for a grand total of 10L well-spent.  If you’d like to scoop up this poncho for yourself, don’t delay, as the Outlet Marketplace Hunt ends January 30th.

Hope is a Thing With Feathers

As Rip and I strolled along, exploring Winter Trace, this darling little feathered friend alighted on my outstretched hand.  Its cheerful presence made me think of the Emily Dickinson poem “Hope is a Thing With Feathers.”  I paused, listened to his cheerful song, then snapped this photo before the little guy fluttered on his way.  Our hearts lighter after our avian encounter, Rip and I headed home.  My wish for you, my friends, is that hope fills your hearts today.  Until my next post, happy shopping!  Just for fun, here is a link to the famous poem set to music and beautifully sung.

From Farmboy To Pop Icon!

WHC Farmboy 1

Greetings from the Riler family farm, where we grow all kinds of healthy food that I won’t eat. I remember once when I was a young pup and Mom asked me “Why won’t you eat fruits and vegetables? There has to be something that we can grow that you’ll eat.” Mom stared at me in complete exasperation. That was the day I learned parrots do not grow on trees. Also, I am told if they did, parrot trees would not grow in the Midwest. I have learned a lot about farming since then, most of it from countless hours of playing FarmVille on Facebook.

The most important lesson I learned about farming is: Do not dress like you have just fallen off the turnip truck. (Wait, if you actually did just fall off the turnip truck, you probably are a farmer anyway, so dressing like that is good, too.) My point is, you are going to want to dress the part and the FREE Gingham Hunt Prize from Firelight Creations/MAN STUFF is perfect for that handsome farmhand look. The prize consists of the Leroy mesh shirt in red gingham and the Cole jeans in light blue denim. The shirt is very nicely shaped and, together with the mesh Cole jeans, which I also consider a keeper, this is a very masculine look. MAN STUFF is the division of Firelight Creations we have to thank for this FREE hunt gift, but included in the same box is a matching women’s outfit from Firelight Creations. This hunt prize would be a very good start for a “Country” kind of outfit for club events and sims, in addition to being nice enough for your regular wardrobe. I may not be the kind of guy suited for farm work, but in this outfit, I could do commercials for brand name soda pop on TV. I could easily imagine myself drinking an ice cold can of pop, condensation dripping down my muscular chest, as my female co-workers in the office break room gawk in silent appreciation. Casual Friday – here I come! Kidding aside, this outfit looks great, and I could seriously sell a ton of pop in this.

For a more suburban look, I love this FREE thank you gift from Carami! It is the Trenton Tee and it comes in a set of five solid dark colors, changeable via hud. This is far more than just a basic mesh T-shirt, this FREE Gift is much more generous than that. The Trenton Tee comes in four variations; tucked, untucked, normal bottom untucked, and narrow bottom untucked. With choices like that, getting a great fit and the right look should not be hard at all. One last reason you need to pick up this FREE gift from Carami: It comes with a sixth bonus texture that isn’t on the hud. That bonus texture is the one I am wearing above, a very casual retro looking print T-shirt. Just take care to make a backup copy of the print tee, because once you change it using the hud, it is replaced with the color you have chosen. In short, Carami is giving you a great basic dark T-shirt in five colors and four variations plus a bonus printed T-shirt design! You can’t beat this kind of a thank you gift, thank you very much Carami.

One last thing I need to mention this week, the skin I am wearing is from Seven Deadly Skins. It is the free group gift for May and looks fantastic, I like it so much you will probably be seeing me in it often in the coming weeks. Seven Deadly Skins is a pay group, but the quality of their skins is excellent and the gifts and specials they have make it well worth joining. As of this moment the group is currently on sale for 50L and is a great pick up for both male and female avies. Well, I am all talked out. This blogging is nearly as hard as cartoon farming (but twice as rewarding). Until next time everyone, have fun and see you on the grid. —–WHC Riler

Follow the White Rabbit

Hello hello, FabFree Folks! I hope the weekend has treated you well both in RL and SL.  I finally had some time to try a Hunt I’d had my eye on today: The White Rabbit Hunt from Fun with Hunts. I think y’all might like a few of the things I found.

BFFair2jpg_002

This first look is the mini dress from Fi’s Creations. As always, Fi’s has set out a fantastic hunt prize. I love the flirty hem line and the soft summery colors. It goes perfectly with the Checkered nails from La Boheme for SLink hands and feet. You get the mani and pedi in the white checks and another mani and pedi with black checks.

BFFair2jpg_003

I had so much fun the other day tooling around SL with Gabriel, I thought I’d let him out to play again. This is the Black Cross Eli shirt and the Black Cross Cole jeans from Man Stuff by Firelight Creations.

This gift is amazingly well made and very stylish. It’ll turn heads where ever you go.

Delicious Reds

Hello again, my dears and happy happy Friday! The ‘love-fest’ Hunts are going strong but you only have a few days left for many of them. So let’s jump in to the 0L  Add Some Red Hunt from Fi’s Hunts.

I was able to make this nifty outfit almost exclusively from the Hunt prizes! First is the  blouse from Get Frocked. I love the peplum hem and the soft velvet look of the fabric. The fact that it’s covered in cute little hearts is just frosting on the cake!

There is some truly lovely jewelry in this Hunt and I had a hard time choosing one to show. But I think the Harlequin Set from Exquisite Jewellery is the perfect fit for the look I’m going for. You get the earrings and the necklace in the prize with commands to turn the ‘bling’ on and off. The necklace actually beats like a heart when you first put it on!

Don’t you love the glasses? I haven’t taken them off since I opened the prize box! These are the Red Tartan Glasses from The Vintage Touch.  Vintage Touch is doing some awesome work and I love seeing their name on a Hunt.  (And don’t forget to check out their new Gift at the FabFree Headquarters too)

Last but not least are the Inez Booties from Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes. As always, Lindys has put out a fantastic pair of shoes for this Hunt. I love the metal details and that rich crimson color.

The Add Some Red Hunt runs until Feb. 28 so you still have some time to add that pop of color to your SL closet!

From Autumn to Winter

I hope everyone has had a good week! I know I’ve been hitting the blog with quickies over the last few days but hopefully I will have some longer posts over the coming days!
Untitled

With the weather growing much much colder up here in the north, its wonderful to see some really great snuggly clothing filling the stores. Winter always have been my favourite month as I much prefer to curl under blankets and in cuddly sweaters and cardigans.. plus the possibility of snow always makes me so excited!

If you are starting to explore the sims around SL that are beginning to make the change from Autumn to Winter, then this full outfit from Firelight Creations will be the perfect thing for you expeditions! It comes complete with the coat, leggings and fluffy boots and whats more its all for free as their gift in The Whiteout Hunt!
