Break Down

Break Down

There are times when a gentleman must take matters into his own hands. No matter your breeding or status, when your airship’s boiler goes out… you pull on a sturdy pair of gloves, secure a tool box and sort things out.

ContraptioN, obviously understands this because this month’s free group gift for the L’Homme readers is all about getting your hands dirty yet remaining a gentleman.

This is the Thibaut waist coat “work” and it’s a generous free gift from ContraptioN. The ‘work’ designation being the soot and grime around the sleeves. Signs of honest work, if you ask me.  Equally well used are the leather gloves I’m sporting. These are the ‘Dapper Dandy’s Gloves’ also designated ‘Soot’.   Both of these gifts will be available until the next round of L’Homme.

When the days turn to Autumn

When the days turn to Autumn

Hey FabFree, we’re halfway through the week  already! I swear, with all the fairs and Hunts and events, I’m going a little batty! 😉  Yeah yeah, I know… it was an easy laugh. But when I saw the latest Fabulously Free Group Gift from Mirus Designs… how could I not go batty for it?

The Bat Blouse is so cute! I’m betting it will be my standard outfit for the rest of the season! I just love the deep purple color and… Bats! Plus, it’s all free for the FabFree Group and our group is, of course, free to join! You can just slap that display board and join, easy peasy.

Sizes Included

So you can show off those abs, guys. There is also a small section in store for the guys with some very nice designs. Definitely worth checking out, gentlemen.

A little warmth

A little warmth

 

It’s starting to get cool in the mornings, a sure sign of Autumns arrival. Plus, just about everywhere, pumpkins and ghosts and those enormous bags of candy in the stores. I have to admit I am having a great time finding, and sampling, the bags Juli thinks she’s hidden around the house.

Speaking of finding treats, you will be hunting down a piece of candy for the Boo! Bunny Hunt to get your treat. This is the men’s gift from Ink Blots and it’s just one Linden plus some hunting. The warm jacket and sweater come as one convenient piece making dressing easy and quick. The details are of good quality and move well once it’s on. Something a lot of men’s wear struggles with. The Boo! Bunny Hunt runs until October 31rst so don’t delay.

Sizes Included

  • Classic Mesh – XS – XL

Hurry up and wait

Hurry up and wait

Why do I always end up waiting? Usually I’m waiting on Juli. This time is no different. She told me… ordered me to hurry up and go find something appropriate for Halloween so of course I did… now I’m just cooling my heels till she gets dressed.  I may be here for a while.

Well, Bats

At least I was able to find something “Halloween – y” for the wait. And got it on the cheap. This is the ‘Bat Shirt’ from Dragonmoon Designs. And it was just 1L as part of the Monster Mash Hunt. There are quite a few men’s prizes on this Hunt so don’t miss it.

At the end of day

At the end of day

Okay, FabFree… all together now… “THANK YOU ALINE!!!!!”

And why, you may ask, are thanking Aline? Other than the fact that she is an awesome person, and a really awesome Blogger, annnd she keeps us all going hereon the blog?  Because A few days ago she popped over and poked me about the Engine Room Event. I had forgotten all about it! She even said “There’s a ton of stuff there that just scream “Juli!” And wow, she is so right! I even found a gorgeous Gacha set for Gabe.

SteamFlirty

This is the “Abigale Set” from Devious Minds. It’s a 75L per play Gacha at the Engine Room. I can’t tell you how much I love this set. The flirty ruffle skirt, the blouse with full sleeves, and boots and the corset are all separate pieces. Plus I was lucky enough to pull the Rare Corset. In all there are a ton of colors for the items and I may be heading back to see if I can pull a couple more colors. Yep, I like it that much!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya

Now Pru showed y’all a bunch of the free gifts at this anniversary round of Engine Room. I had to include a couple more in my outfit. First are my really cool sun glasses. These are the “Round Glasses” from Art & Gears and they are free to everyone in the free to join Second Life Syndicate group.  My cute gears choker is another free gift at the event from Rabbithouse.

Get Wrecked

Gabriel’s handsome shirt  and vest combo is another great Engine Room Gacha. This is the “Gentlesteam” from Rekt. The shirt and vest are done as a combo but each shirt comes with either a black tie or a tie the same color as the vest. His steams and gears new arm is also from the Gentlesteam gacha. The mechanical arms come in several metals and in the left or right versions. All that for an easy 50L per pull.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Legacy

The Engine Room runs until October 20th!

In the Dark

In the Dark

The end of the month is swiftly approaching and I’m NOT ready! There are still so many Hunts to hunt and freebies to gather and events to go to…  I better just quit whining and get to it! One of the Hunts I love, despite the hair tearing, eye crossing, sneaky little hiding cubes, is the Twisted Hunt. It was actually the first Hunt I ever did way back in the early days. So yeah, I got tossed into the deep end first thing. BUT… The Twisted Hunt, in my opinion, has the best prizes of all the hunts.  And Gabe and I are showing off just a few of those awesome prizes today. But there’s a time crunch… The Hunt ends on the 30th!

Dark Elves

This round’s theme is Drow elves! I’ve always wondered what it’d be like to be one of the Dark elves and doesn’t Gabe look fantastic as a Drow? I’m lovin’ his yummy ears!  Ahem, anyway, our slick new Drow skins are from Jeanette’s Joint. The prize contains four skins for the ladies: Brows and Browless and “explicit” and modest. The guys get two skins – Brows and Browless. The skins are Baked on Mesh and look fantastic.

Rogues

Our new outfits are also Twisted prizes. These are the “Drow Rogue” outfits from Valkyr. The ladies outfit comes with the top, pants and boots while the guys garb is a tunic and pants. Both of the builds are just gorgeous and I foresee these outfits staying in our closets a long time!

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin

Julian

Julian

No, I’m not changing my name. I’m rather pleased with the one I have… well, actually I have three names. But that’s a story for another time. The Julian I am referring to is the name of the smashing new shirt I’m wearing today.

Details

As I said, this is ‘Julian’ from Finer Threads and you can add it to your closet for free. Yes, free. This is the free gift from Finer Threads at Uber. Ms. Prudence has already shown some of the free gift at Uber and Julianna came back from the event staggering under the weight of all the gifts she had collected. I had little hope for a mens gift, yet happily, here we are and it’s a very fine gift indeed.  If the charcoal color I chose isn’t your taste, Julian comes with a HUD for eight colors and as many other embroidery details.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature – Gianni

Uber runs until September 22. For easy shopping, this is the Cam Shopping LM

Hello and Happy Weekend, FabFree. A new to me designer has popped up on my radar for good quality men’s wear today. I was alerted by my group chat for Third Life to a new gift. I know Juli has told you all about the Third Life Group and while there’s a majority of gifts for the girls, we guys have a gift or two as well. You just have to join the group for a small onetime fee of 10L and you’ll have access to loads of designers and those free gifts.

Tanked

Modern Charm is a new to me designer and I’m very pleased  to have discovered them. There is a group with multiple gifts and a large store. The items are well built and have quality textures. I have a feeling I will be returning to Modern Charm often.  This top is the Paolo Tank and you can pick it up for free with your Third Life Group tag. The tank comes with a HUD with five colors and four graphics you can mix.

Sizes Included

Hey FabFree! Can you believe we are rolling so fast towards the end of July? I’ve still got a list of things that need to be done before that! I’ve got Hunts and Fairs and events all stacking up!  So lets get at least one of those going now.

Celtic Love

I love the Celtic history and language and countries. Scotland is my family’s ancestral home both on the Grid and in the Real world. So I had to take part in the Celtic Celebration Hunt.  And since I can’t resist a man in a kilt, I convinced Gabriel to come along.

These are the men’s and women’s gifts from Mystrie for the Hunt : the Aina dress and the Aiden Kilt.  The dress comes as one easy piece and is a lovely build. If you can’t see in the picture, there is Celtic knotwork all down the skirt and the texture in the bodice is so detailed. This will be a staple in my RP closet.

The Aiden Kilt comes in three pieces – the shoes and socks, the kilt and the vest. Gabriel did add the undershirt from his own closet. Again, the details are spot on. The textures are smooth and well made.

The Celtic Celebration Hunt runs until July 29th so don’t wait around to get your Hunt on!
