Looking for adventure…

Cytheria_001

Looking for Adventure…

While Aline was at the Beach finding magic and relaxation… I was at Cytheria because I craved some spooky adventure (and a different type of magic). If you haven’t visited this cool photogenic hotspot, put it on your Bucket List. Between the skull infested swamps, the cottage with the dungeon, and the awesome castle – complete with … I think it’s a squid? you’ll be glad you went! It’s not the beach, but hey… a guy has to do what a guy has to do. Maybe Aline will join me on one of those days when she’s feeling a bit more wild! Like when she’s making onesies into fashion statements ๐Ÿ˜‰

Before I headed out for adventure I stopped by i.mesh to pick up the newest group gift. The group is free to join and the gift is free as well. You’ll be getting a great new Tank Top out of the deal in a terrific knit texture (this picture doesn’t do it justice) and the back has a really nice sort of mesh pattern across the shoulders. I know, I know… I should have got a picture of the back…

Gift Details:

  • Shirt Sizes Available: Signature fitted Mesh
  • Colors: Black or White

Despite the fact that this top only came in a Signature fit, it worked perfectly for my Belleza Jake body and I didn’t even have to fiddle with my shape at all. For the price of FREE, it’s worth picking up to see if it will fit your mesh body even if you don’t have Signature, especially for a quality gift like this. You’ve definitely got nothing to lose!

Anyway, I’m off to check out the squid thing again inside that castle!

Tending Bar

Tending Bar_001

Tending Bar

Speaking of 80’s Rock bands… while Aline and Love were have a conversation about Whitesnake videos, I was tending bar at Thames River Valley, and 80’s music just happened to be on the radio. Coincidence huh? I like the 80’s bands, reminds me of my childhood. Yeah, I’m old.

Old but…

… feeling Fabulous… in my FabFree gift from House of Ruby. If you haven’t picked it up yet, stop by the main-store and nab this great applier shirt free for Fabfree group members. It’s applier only (Omega and Slink) and fits like a glove. It comes in this great turquoise color fit for any occasion. As always, FabFree group gifts won’t cost you a single linden.

Another great shirt…

Same store, but another great shirt. While I was at House of Ruby, I noticed the wall of gifts currently out for both men and women and clicked the Double T-shirt in Black for men. It didn’t require a group space at all. I just had to subscribe to information and the gift was sent to me free. A win-win in my book. Two shirts great shirts for one stop for the day. This one is also an applier shirt in Omega and Slink appliers.

Another set of bracelets.

I showed you the free Chop Zuey Castory bracelets in blue in my post [here]. But I happen to be a member of the Chop Zuey group and had also picked them up in black and so put them on for this post. They are a great look I think! The Chop Zuey group has a one-time fee of 350 linden, but the creator puts out frequent and generous men’s and women’s gifts, making it well worth the fee if you stay in the group.

Have a great Easter!

Don’t Get Left Out in the Cold!

Living in an Igloo

The Menstuff Hunt is coming to an end.

I didn’t want to get left out in the cold when it came to getting in on the goods with the Menstuff Hunt… after all, the hunt ends November 30th, but somehow I ended up sitting on ice in a simful of penguins. I blame Astrid’s sense of direction. At least the penguins are friendly and the view of the Northern Lights is spectacular. Come to think of it… I don’t have that much to complain about after all. The trip up here was actually worth it. The sim is called Lovea and this little icy haven is outside of a small art studio. It’s well worth visiting to snap a few photos.

I needed igloo appropriate clothes.

I figure this red vest is igloo appropriate right? It’s also a FREE Menstuff Hunt gift from Birth and includes three different undershirt options. The shirt and vest are mesh and come separate so you can pick which shirt you will pair with the red vest. You get three choices of shirt: black, grey (pictured), and white. It comes in all the standard sizes and has its own alpha layer.

Living in an Igloo 2

It’ll put hair on ya.

I remember various relatives telling me when I was growing up that different foods or activities would “put hair on my chest.” Thankfully it doesn’t work that way… but finding the iconic blue Menstuff Hunt shirt at Nivaro will put hair on your face!

Find the FREE gift there and you’ll be getting a fatpack of their Natural and Eldorado beards.

The package includes system layers of:

  • The El Doradoย  in both hard and soft in black, blonde, brown, red, and white/tintable
  • The Natural (shown) in both hard and soft in black, blonde, brown, red, and white/tintable

I think I’ll try to find a warmer locale for my next traveling venture… but we’ll see what Astrid has in mind. Till then, I have reading to do. Have a great afternoon!

Opening Doors

Doors

The Doors.

Astrid got this crazy idea that we are going to be adventuring… and Kathryn helped her out with a link to this Flickr Group where you can look at pictures of various sims. It’s required to post the slurl in the description, so you can be sure to find the destination if you want to check it out for yourself. One of the photos caught my eye, and I landed on Baja Bay.

The original photo had been of a beach house with seaguls…. but I ended up gravitating toward a set of doors on the beach. I’m reminded of a song by The Doors called “Land Ho.”

“Grandma loved a sailor, who sailed the frozen sea
Grandpa was that whaler and he took me on his knee
He said: “Son, I’m going crazy from livin’ on the land
Got to find my shipmates and walk on foreign sands”

Maybe that’s just the thing. I’ve been a little cooped up lately and I’m ready to open doors. These four got me as excited is Astrid about what lay ahead.

I haven’t forgotten the Freebies!

Every sailor needs a north star to guide their ship by… and as Astrid mentioned in her post [HERE], it was highly likely that I might be sharing the men’s gift from KiB Designs with you. The group is FREE to join and you can pick up this T-shirt FREE with your group tag.

The gift package from KiB Designs is actually a “family” package and includes this black T-shirt with the star print on it for everyone in the family… Mom, Dad, and kiddo. I’m wearing it in the male version. It comes in all the standard sizes with its own alpha layer. Ladies if you like it, you can pick it up FREE as well.

I’m off to wander the beach… the waves are still crashing and I think I see a few seashells. I feel the wanderlust creeping up on me. “Singing songs of shady sisters and old time liberty. Songs of love and songs of death and songs to set men free.” (The Doors)

Happy Wandering.

First Flurries

First Flurries

A Few Flurries in the Forecast…

This newest group gift from Tiffany Designs had me thinking about the holidays and the first possible flurries of snowfall… so I headed for a photogenic sim with snow in place to take my picture of it for you.

This is the Henry vintage suit and it comes in one piece for easy fitting. You’ll get all the standard mesh sizes as well as an alpha layer.

Past Group Gifts Still Available!

If it looks familiar, it’s because Tiffany Design’s has put this fabulous suit out before as a group gift, except in a different color. In fact, there are currently four other group gifts out that you can pick up in addition to this suit shown above. You can preview three of the four here:

Tip Your Hat to Style

Tip Your Hat to Style

I really have to tip my hat to the creators who are participating in the Menstuff Hunt. The prizes this round are outstanding as usual. I ran across a new-to-me designer – Hot Fuss – and was pleased to come away with two items – not only the hunt gift, but also a lucky letter chair gift.

The Hat.

If you stop by Hot Fuss, you’ll be able to pick up this men’s fedora as part of their contribution to the Menstuff Hunt. It’s an excellent design in a fedora style and yours for only 1L and a little hunting time. It’s sure to add class and style to most any outfit. I didn’t have any trouble adjusting it to fit my head, and it looked great over the top of my usual hairbase.

The Sweater.

While I was at Hot Fuss, I noticed they had out two lucky letter chairs. No group is required for either and they are completely FREE. One is for the ladies, but the other is for us menfolk. My letter came up while I was hunting down my hat and I was able to pick up this Tristan sweater in all the standard mesh sizes. It even includes a color change hud with three color choices. I’m showing you the fawn color, as that matched the hat, but it also included a really nice navy and a coal shades all in this traditional diamond print.

The cut, flow, and fit of the mesh shirt is excellent, and it would be well worth checking to see if your letter would come up. The chair was on a short timer, so your wait might not be too long.

Tip Your Hat to Style 2

The Necklace.

It never hurts to add a final touch to a classic outfit. I made a stop by etham to see what they had as their Menstuff Hunt prize and was pleased to discover a finely crafted Chainmail Cross as the gift. It is a FREE gift. Just find the iconic blue t-shirt and pay 0L and it is yours to add to your inventory.

Paisley Day

Paisley Day

Time to fill out your inventory.

The Menstuff Hunt runs through November, and promises, as usual, to fill our manly inventories with lots of essential goodies. My first stop was Brocade Tiger, where I picked up this shirt and tie combo that I admit, won me over immediately. I like the unique Paisley design and was especially happy when I noted on the hunt website that it is an exclusive gift for the hunt. The gift is FREE, meaning it will only cost you a bit of hunting time. Once you find that iconic blue t-shirt, just buy the item for 0L.

The tie is an optional affair.

Put a tie on. Or don’t. Versatility is always nice when it comes to clothing options. And when you can find a quality gift that gives you that extra “oomf” in the versatility department, you know you’ve come across a winner. I especially love items that are unique. This gift from Brocade Tiger comes in all the standard sizes and includes its own alpha. In addition, the shirt and tie are separate, so the tie is optional. The shirt has a nicely detailed button down front, so it looks just as good without the mesh tie as it does with it. I think you’ll agree that this is a gift worthy of your Second Life closet.

GET YOUR HUNT ON

November is proving to be a month for hunting. I took a look at the number of hunts on the grid, and I’m excited to say that I almost didn’t know where to begin. Between the Menstuff Hunt, The Medieval Fantasy Hunt, the El Dia Los Muertos Hunt, and so many others, this month is proving to be a Hunter’s Dream come true! I finally decided to start out my hunting with El Dia Los Muertos, though, since it is traditionally celebrated at the beginning of November, even if the hunt lasts through to the end of November. There are many wonderful prizes to to be had for your hunting time and 1L for each prize.

I made my initial stop by Roped Passion’s, as the creator has never let me down when it comes to creative attire. And as usual, there is a terrific hunt gift set out, and men have not been forgotten. (Ladies there is a gorgeous dress in the prize for you too, but I decided not to wear it in this post. ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

WHAT IS INCLUDED

Your hunt prize includes the Modern Day of the Dead suit for men in all the standard mesh sizes (it is one piece for easy fitting) as well as its own alpha. You will also get a separate and optional mesh mask. The mask is editable as far as resizing to easily fit to different size heads/faces. I did a bit of tweaking to get it to fit to my face without any trouble.

The suit has a terrific texture on the sleeves and cuffs, but also on the back. In order to show you the design on the back, I’m including the vendor advertisement below so you can see the back of the outfit as well. It’s well worth teleporting to the Roped Passion’s main-store to hunt down this 1L prize!

Inside My Skull

Inside My Skull (Shirt)

Gotta Love Events…

Kathryn pointed me toward the Boho Culture Fair, and said that there were gifts to be had. These events are always a fantastic place to pick up gifts, but sometimes it can be hard to find items for us menfolk at them. I was pleasantly surprised when she pointed me in the direction of the Trashed booth, which had out a gift for both women AND men.

You’re Not the Costume Type?

Personally I love the Fall season as well as Halloween, but dressing up in a costume is just not on my agenda. So when I saw the 1L gift from Trashed for men, I was really thrilled. Trashed has out this skull decorated shirt. It is one piece mesh but has the appearance of being a long sleeve white t-shirt with a short sleeve black t-shirt overlay. The great thing about it is that it you’ll be able to wear it after Halloween too, since it could easily pass as “Biker” or “Gothic” with no problem.

Don’t Miss Out!

You’ll want to pick up this gift from Trashed (it comes in all the standard mesh sizes and includes it’s own alpha layer) before November 4th. That’s when the Boho Culture Fair ends. While you’re there, be sure to check out the other booths, there are lots of gifts and goodies to be had from many outstanding designers!
