Happy Wednesday everyone! This June has been fantastic for male freebie and cheapie-hunters! This week, I bring you more items from the Menstuff Hunt, a one hundred store hunt that runs until the end of June. Hunt prizes are at most 1L, but the majority of them are offered for FREE! There is no reason not to roll your sleeves up and get hunting, the prizes are too good to pass up!
Gabriel, a store with a reputation for generous FREE group gifts, created this beautiful floral print shirt for the Menstuff Hunt. The Mesh Gradation Flower shirt comes in two colors: blue and black. The floral pattern appears in the bottom quarter of the shirt and sleeves for a subtle, summery look without making the shirt look feminine. The lighter color in the upper part of the shirt draws the eye to the chest area where the shirt is unbuttoned and open. This shirt will give you a cool, stylish, laid back look in whichever color you choose to wear. Gabriel’s FREE Menstuff Hunt gift is a great choice to wear around the grid this summer.
To complement the shirt, I chose the Men’s Mesh Kanto Chino Jeans from Hawker’s House. Sporting extremely well-done shading and texturing, these gray jeans look realistic and provide a very manly look, if you know what I mean. There is no reason we should go around looking like Ken dolls, so it’s always nice to see a little shading to give us guys a little added dimension. Hawker’s House’s hunt prize for the Menstuff Hunt is one of the most generous gifts in the entire hunt. For 1L, you get these swell mesh jeans, the blue denim boots I am wearing and a red nyc T-Shirt (not pictured). The Men’s Mesh Doc Martin Style Boots in Denim are very nicely textured and likely to stand out more than simple black or brown leather Doc Martin style boots. There is something you should be aware of when you get this excellent hunt gift. I have noticed from personal experience that automatic unpacking scripts occasionally don’t transfer the alpha to inventory along with the other items (if the alpha is no copy). In order to unpack this gift, I strongly recommend rezzing the box on the ground and manually unpacking it instead of clicking the box as instructed. This way, you will have everything you need to enjoy these fantastic boots. Quality, inexpensive footwear for men is not an easy find on Second Life, and for only 1L these boots from Hawker’s House are of high enough quality to deserve a very close look! Plus, you get the Kanto Chino Jeans as well!
My necklace is part of the Menstuff Hunt prize from Timeless Designs. The Rebel Black Agate Rope Necklace and Bracelet are both included in the Menstuff Hunt gift. I really liked the simple, masculine look of these pieces. If you look closely, you can see the braiding of the rope and the designs on the gray beads. Great care and time was obviously invested in creating these products. This hunt gift will only set you back 1L, and Timeless Designs made sure it was money well spent. I know I will enjoy it and hope that some of you will as well.
When I first saw this T-Shirt, I knew I had to blog it. The Fetthunterblack T-Shirt from Fliped Out Designs is a great item for the Sci-fi geek nestled inside all of us. Inspired by the universe’s favorite bounty hunter, the T-Shirt is designed with a large playing card like image with the word “Hunter” in the middle of it. At least I hope it is playing card like. If it was a tarot card I would be packing my bags right now instead of writing this. No reason to take any chances concerning my own fate. This unique graphic tee is the FREE Menstuff Hunt Gift from Fliped Out Designs and is available like the rest of the hunt prizes until the end of June.
These black boots were a super find over at The Grey Goose. The Black A** Kickers turned out to be just what I needed to complete this outfit. They have a detailed leather texture and silver metal fasteners, one zipper and three skull buckles. Originally, I had mixed feelings about highlighting them because they are not resizable at least by any method I am aware of. On the shapes I regularly use, the fit was imperfect. Of course, in these days of mesh, it is not unusual to have to adjust your shape to wear something. So, that was not enough reason to discard a perfectly nice pair of FREE black leather boots, especially considering you can pick them up and make your own decisions. Personally, I kept them! ;-)
Some readers might have noticed I am wearing a different skin than usual. STALKERS! The Menstuff Hunt skin from Seven Deadly Skins is very nice, easily passing my very picky standards, and absolutely no surprise to me. Although it is good enough for any male avy to wear, it is an incredible pick up for any new residents or alts out there. There is no reason to look new when you can find a skin this nice for FREE! Thank you for such a nice hunt gift.
Lastly, I want to point out one item that is NOT part of the Menstuff Hunt. Rather, it is an entirely FREE gift for a limited time from Poetic Colors. The Summer Sky Eyes – Beach Nighteyes are a beautiful blue with some pink and lavender mixed in. Click on my pictures above to get into my flickr, then click once more to magnify the image for an up-close look at these eyes. They are only available for a limited time, so if you like them, run over and pick these up as soon as you can.
That’s it for this week. Although I have highlighted over twenty items from the Menstuff Hunt this month, there are one hundred stores participating. So, try as I might, I have only scratched the surface of this wonderful hunt. I want to take a moment to remind everyone that the For Him Hunt is still going on, but ends on the nineteenth of this month. So, if you want to pick up a really sexy workout outfit blogged here, this is your last chance. Until next time my friends, take care and see you on the grid. —–WHC Riler
