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.

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

Roses are Red

Roses are red
My dress is black
Nothing is frilly
Gothic is back!

Roses are Red

I admit… all the hearts and frills were making me a little itchy. So when I saw that Pixel Box Designs was giving out two amazing gifts for FREE I had to snatch them up and put together a quick Gothic look for Valentine’s day. Both of these offers are TIME SENSITIVE. You will only have 3 days to grab them up. So do not wait!

If you like my Roses and Key Necklace in red (the box also contains a blue rose version), you can pick this gift up FREE at the Pixel Box main-store location. It is FREE to everyone, no group required. Just buy it for 0L. But it may only be out for today and another day or so, so hurry!

If you like my eye patch (eye certainly do! *wink wink*) then you can easily nab it off the marketplace as it is there only as a special FREE to everyone gift. Again, this is a limited time offer so do not wait! It also comes with a lovely rose ring to match (not shown).

A Little Classic Classy

Hello FabFree-ers! Are you getting ready for the ‘big’ weekend?

colorMe_001

If you’re the ‘goin’ out’ type for Valentine’s Day you can’t go wrong with a classic Little Black Dress. And right now, you can get your ‘LBD’ for free! This is the flirty ‘Amore’ dress from Tentations at the Color Me Project and it’s the free gift to celebrate Color Me Project’s anniversary.  The dress comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and has it’s own alpha layer.  I love the heart shape cut out on the chest and the lace detail all the hem. Just the thing for a sassy girl on a night out.

If you have your perfect Little Black Dress… you need the perfect heels to compliment it. Illi has set out these great black heels at the Color Me Project as their free gift for us.  The ‘Black Pumps’ are for SLink High Feet, The Mesh Project, Belleza and Maitreya mesh feet.

Completing my classy classic look today is my little black clutch purse from FLRN Designs. You can pick up this cute little clutch as a free Group Gift from FLRN Designs when you join the free Group. Not only will you get the black one, you also get a red one and a turquoise one!  In the box, you’ll get two of each color: one with a hold animation and one without. There are several other past group gifts available to pick up when you join. But more about that later. ;)

The Color Me Project runs until February 19th so hurry over!

Cupid is Here!

The weekend is almost here, and everyone will be celebrating! You only have a few days left to set up your space and get your outfit ready. But never fear… cupid is here to help… with the Stupid Cupid Hunt! As well as a few other goodies here and there!

Every Love Story is Beautiful 2

If you are not a subscriber at Sway’s, now is the time! Currently, new (or current) subscribers can get these fabulous wooden art boards (modifiable) as FREE Valentine’s gifts. I think they are good year round for any decor!

I stopped by OMG! Inc. and picked up this color change corset in all the standard mesh sizes with 8 color choices for just 1L as part of the Stupid Cupid Hunt. You are looking for a little arrow.

Every Love Story is Beautiful

I also found this sweet unisex ILY necklace by Mesh Glam Jewelry for 1L as part of the Stupid Cupid Hunt. Stop by the main-store and look for the arrow again, and it’s yours to take home. It’s resizable for male or female avatars.

Since I had some great jewelry, I wanted to add a bit of flair to my make up. I usually go with neutral make up, but decided to go a bit more wild for the upcoming holiday and alaskametro is offering this great little tester of their Extreme Wing in Flame for FREE on the Marketplace. If you want the full pack you can get that for only 75L. So either way it’s a great deal on some fantastic eye-shadow! The make up comes in standard system layers as well as appliers for TMP, EVEolution, Lelutka, Omega, and Slink.

Love Prismatically

Love Prism 1

I’m hot on the trail of hunt deals, and I broke into some prismatically detailed outfits at Prism Designs! Prism Designs is participating in two great hunts with two amazing gifts, and you will want to nab them both up!

For just 1L you can love this Love Hunt gift outfit called Chenae Leather Jacket and Dress. The dress and jacket are two different pieces and can be worn separately or together for a stunning and unique look either way! Each piece comes in all the standard mesh sizes and the dress has a great plunging cut out back with a fabulous geometric print that really catches the eye.

Love Prism

I wasn’t done hunting down the goods though, and picked up this great outfit called Odelia while still at Prism for FREE. It is part of the Loving Kind Hunt and includes both the mesh pants and the mesh sweater, again in all the standard mesh sizes with great geometric prints to really set them apart from your standard fare. Well worth hunting down the little red heart and popping it into your wardrobe!

Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez

Fabulous Fat Tuesday, FabFree-ers!

Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez

Yep, it’s Mardi Gras Tuesday and 25 Linden Tuesday all rolled up into one! So let’s Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez!

First is my sparkly ‘Carnival’ top from It’s Gau. This is a new designer to me and I’m very excited to have discovered them. There are tons of group gifts, lucky boards and specials all over the store. This cute tank top ( With attached bikini top) and the matching tee for the gentlemen are the current group gift. It comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-L and has it’s own alpha layer. Since this is a Mardi Gras gift… the Group Gift at It’s Gau may change very soon so hurry over if you need to snatch it up.

My beads are a Marketplace find. These are ‘Mardi Gras Beads’ from Dreamwalker Creations and they are free for everyone. Don’t they really set off my whole Mardi Gras look?

Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez

My gorgeous mask is from Chimeric Arts and it’s  their special for 25 Linden Tuesday. I can’t believe the details and just the quality of the build. I was so excited to find it for such a low price. Chimeric Arts is offering three of the ‘Feathered and Beaked’ masks and three ‘Half Face’ masks as well for the special.

My cute pose is also a 25 Linden Tuesday find! This is ‘The Guard’ pose pack from Belle Epoque. You get six poses all for 25L. I like each of them and had a hard time picking one for this post. So I’m betting you’ll be seeing lots more of this pose pack in the future.

 

25L Tuesday runs all day today so don’t delay getting your shop hopping on!

Hearts and Heels

Hello again Fab Free Folks!

Hearts and Heels

Have you seen all the Valentine’s Day Hunts going on? I hardly know where to start with all the hearts. And cupids and roses and candy….  But I love, no pun intended, this time of year. After yesterday’s career look, I decided I needed something sleek and elegant but a little sexy. Get Frocked had just the thing. This is the ‘Add some red dress’ for the “Add Some Red” hunt. I was just taken by the low cut back and the little bow. Sophisticated but sexy, just the thing! The dress comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and has it’s own alpha layer.

Remember yesterday when I showed y’all the black ‘Tied Up’ heels from Grumble? Well, I couldn’t resist, I had to go pick up the red pair too! Grumble has twenty little boxes of candy scattered around the store for their “Eat Me” hunt and each one is just 1L.  Including these gorgeous sky high heels for SLink high feet.

Hearts and Heels

Last but not least, Livia has supplied my nails this evening for just 1L as part of the “Stupid Cupid” hunt. ‘In Love’ comes with seven colors/patterns on two HUDs. One for Omega and SLink and one for Maitreya. So they’ve got you pretty much covered!

Both ‘Stupid Cupid’ and the “Add Some Red”  hunts  AND the ‘Eat Me’ in-store hunt run until February 29!

Workin’ 9 to 5

Hey There, FabFree-ers!

Workin' 9 to 5

The weekend is almost up and most of us will be heading back to work tomorrow but there just a minute to show off some great ‘career wear’ I found.

This is the ‘Megan’ dress from Legendaire and it’s free for everyone, no group needed. If that wasn’t generous enough, this gift comes with a six color HUD for a ton of options. The dress comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and appliers for SLink, Belleza and Maitreya.

My new shoes might be a little daring for the office but who doesn’t like a little daring no and then? These are the ‘Tied Up’ heels for SLink high feet. And they are you free gift for the ‘Hunt for your inner slut’ Hunt from Grumble.  If you like these shoes, you can also find a red pair in Grumble’s ‘Eat Me’ in store hunt for 1L.

Workin' 9 to 5

And I found a nifty ‘office-ready’ new hair style too! This is ‘Barbie’ from Tameless and it’s a mere 10L at the Truth or Dare Affair. Not only do you get the gorgeous red… you get the entire fat pack. So I know there’s a color in there you’ll love.

Sometimes gifts can come and go quickly, so if you want the Megan dress please hurry over. The Hunt for your Inner Slut Hunt runs until February 15 and the Truth or Dare Affair is open until February 29.

Feeling a little monochromatic.

Hello again everybody. Hope you are all having a fabulous weekend, I know I am! To make this weekend even better, I’ve got a few Marketplace finds for you, 2 great group gifts, and a lovely, wearable demo. Wow, I better get started!

Feeling a little monochromatic.

Let’s start with the Marketplace. My sexy dress is called Lanelle, and it is a dollarbie from Tee*fy. It is mesh, and comes in the standard sizes, as well as a fitted mesh version for the Maitreya Lara body. My other Marketplace find are my sweet heels. The Nix High Heels also only L$1, were put out as a special for Halloween, from Vowtte, and are still available. They are meant for SLink and Bellezza high feet, and you actually get 2 pairs, the black ones that I am showing off, and a purple pair as well. The texturing on them is amazing, and they are well worth that L$1! (Thanks for the tip on these amazing shoes Glimmer :) )

Feeling a little monochromatic

OK, on to the group gifts. Have you been admiring my beautiful skin? Well, lucky for all of you, it is the most recent Toxxic Design Studio’s group gift from AlterEgo. The lovely Adriana in the rose skin tone, is free for group members, and even better, the group is free to join! You get 2 skins, one with red eyebrows, and the one I am wearing, a browless version. There is also a loudmouth applier, a shape, an eyelash remover, as well as a few brow shapes. Any other appliers you need, have been placed right in front of the sign for your convenience (I hate having to go exploring to find corresponding appliers!), they will need to be purchased for a small fee. The other group gift I am wearing, my pearl jewelry set, comes from Chop Zuey, and is a free gift for members of the Womenstuff group, available in the ‘stuff Lounge. If the To The Daisy set looks a little familiar, you may recall that Astrid had previously shown it to all of you HERE, when Chop Zuey had it out as one of their own group gifts. So if you missed grabbing it then, now’s your chance! You get right and left bracelets, earrings, a ring, and 3 different necklaces that you can wear individually, or stack them all together like I have done. The Womenstuff group has a small join fee of L$50, but as you should already know (from the numerous posts showing off gifts from this group) it is well worth it!

Feeling a little monochromatic

The last piece I want to tell you about, my hair,  may also seem a bit familiar, as Love first modeled it for you HERE as a free group gift.  However, the Sheena hair from LeLutka is now available, free for everyone, as a free wearable colour demo! This rigged mesh style, is a full colour hud pack to allow you to see all the different colours available for LeLutka hair. I really do love wearable demos, it’s a great excuse to put out a freebie, even better when it’s as pretty as this hair is.

I have to say, I am really loving this monochromatic look I’ve put together with all these great finds. Would you believe, other than the choice in hair colour, though even my normal black would have worked, I did not plan it like this at all. Sometimes it just works out perfectly this way :) . Alright lovelies, that is all I have for now, but don’t worry, I’ll be back. Until then, TTFN!!
