An Evening Stroll

GIZZA February Group Gift

A night on the town…

“Enough work!” she said as I was typing away on another post. “Tonight I am taking you out!” She pointed to the outfit she had picked out for me to wear. As I “suited up” I noticed we matched. Now I understand why she picked out my clothes. She had been shopping today at GizzA and brought home the latest FREE  group gifts for both men and women. The matching Group Gift Feb’2017 are gray and black outfits. The one piece men’s outfit has an attached scarf. The women’s outfit has a matching belt with the GizzA logo. The GizzA group is FREE to join and there are many previous gifts still available!

A walk to the restaurant…

The restaurant is close by, so we decide to walk. It’s a nice evening and the stars are out. Our walking pose is called White Christmas by GlamRus. It can be found on the marketplace for just $1L. That leaves up plenty of lindens for our evening meal.  So, out to dinner we go, and maybe some dancing afterwards… After all, it is my birthday…

Early Dismissal

Wilsons- For Him Hunt

Sending them home…

There is nothing better than to hear a rumor that there is an early dismissal because of a maintenance issue. It’s even better when you know and the students don’t. It seems like dropping hints to today’s youth is like talking to this chalkboard behind me. When the “official” announcement was made, the building erupted into total chaos. I’m glad they held off letting the cat out of the bag for as long as they did. I also guess I’ll save my new outfit I picked up at Wilson’s Designs for another day as well. The Donnie Mesh Outfit can be found on the For Him Hunt 3 for just $1L. Both the pants and blazer come in standard sizes of XS-XL. I think I’ll go home and put on something less business like and maybe even take a nap! Oh, In case you’re wondering what is written on the blackboard behind me, I really couldn’t tell you.. Math isn’t my subject… 🙂

And if you want to look dashing and ready for Cupid’s arrow, stop by Vero Modero and look for the Where’s Cupid Hunt gift. The Red Ascot Suit can be yours for just $1L if you can find the hunt item. (seriously. it’s easy… I even found it). You’ll have no trouble getting targeted by the ladies with this look. Go get ’em, Tiger!

Shiny Shabby Surely!

whc rispetto 1_001

whc rispetto 2_002

Hello everyone! It is I, your intrepid male freebie/cheapie hunter with a quick post for you. February will be over soon and will bring to a close two fabulous hunts: Menstuff and Jack Or Jill. If you have been putting it off, now is the time to start hunting! The amount of quality men’s hunt prizes available at the moment is impressive, and all yours for a little bit of effort! Even more time sensitive, though, is a pair of freebies that are available right now and will not be out very much longer.

Shiny Shabby is celebrating it’s anniversary on Second Life by throwing a big sales event featuring an unbelievable number of freebies. The Hoorenbeek stall at Shiny Shabby is offering as its free anniversary gift the Mesh Military Boots in Burgundy. As with all Hoorenbeek products, the texturing is amazing and the overall quality is excellent. I never pass up an opportunity to pick up free Hoorenbeek and neither should you, especially since this gift comes with both male and female versions in the box. The boots come in regular and short variations with the eyelets and laces texture changable via hud, and if that isn’t generous enough they also include the mesh jeans i am wearing and the mesh belt in two variants! While over at Shiny Shabby also check out what Amacci has put out as a free gift. The Zenith Eyes in Mocha are a striking set of Mesh eyes adjustable via hud. Additionally included are versions for those who prefer using legacy eyes. As you can see by the many Shiny Shabby items featured on Fab Free this week, it is an event not to be missed. Now you have two more excellent reasons to head on over there!

I started this post mentioning two great men’s hunts that are winding up this month. Rispetto Designsfree Jack Or Jill Hunt gift is the Devin MESH Jacket & Hoodie in Army. As you can see from my lead picture it is a very casual looking garment. Appearing to be made up of multiple layers, this one piece of integrated mesh is beautifully textured to look well-worn and comfortable. Coming in five sizes, two of which are fitmesh, this is a free hunt gift definitely worth getting your hands on. Also on the Jack Or Jill Hunt is the free hunt gift from 7 Deadly S{K}ins. The River in Taupe skin is a very handsome skin. Even though I usually like to show off skins by getting close to naked, this time I decided to spare all of you the gratuitous near nudity and just tell you it’s a fine example of the kind of quality skins 7 Deadly S{K}ins is known for producing. When you are picking up these two hunt gifts look for the Menstuff Hunt prizes as well since both stores are also participating in that also.

That is all I have for you at the moment, but rest assured I will try to tempt you into going hunting at least once more before this month is over. Until next time my friends, take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

More Free Footwear For Men!

whc shoe post 4 oddity 1

“Free Footwear Day” is underway here at Fab Free. Being the resident slacker of the crew, I imagine some jaws will drop when they notice a second post from me in a single day! The Truth is though there are more items that literally cry out for attention. Items of unbelievable quality that also happen to be free!

In the above picture, I have gathered some amazing boots from Oddity. Currently there are two different pair of boots available there as free group gifts. Both of them are mesh and have huds which offer several textures. In the foreground, the Casey – Basic Boots are super detailed, probably the best free boots I have ever seen. The hud gives you both brown and black (maybe dark gray) textures and two different lace and trim textures. For a free group gift this is an incredible item to be offered, one that deserves some consideration. In the background, the Ash – Basic Boots are shown in brown. Again with Oddity you are getting hyper realistic, high quality Mesh boots. Ash comes in gray and brown, selectable via the texture hud. Unfortunately I do feel compelled to mention that both of these items carry the store logos prominently to a degree which might turn off some, but these items are of such high quality I urge you to pick them up and try them yourself. There is a good chance you are going to love them!

whc hoorenbeek 1_002

In the second picture, I collected the shoes that are currently available for free on the subscribo over at Hoorenbeek. The shoes in the foreground are the Mesh Allen Dress Shoes in Brown. These are excellent dress shoes to have and a fine example of the quality of the shoes you find over at Hoorenbeek, a store that has long been a personal favorite of mine for men’s shoes. Behind them in the picture I have arranged four variations of their Mesh Heritage Boots in Gritty Black. All included in the subscribo gift , this boot package is nearly overwhelming in its generosity. Designed to keep you from having to use a group slot, Hoorenbeek‘s subscribo has very different rules than most subscribos. If you have previously joined it so your name is on the list, you can pick these items right now! If not, then you will need to visit the store and join the subscribo as soon as possible. There is a two week wait before you are permitted to pick up the free gifts after joining, so sadly, by the time you are eligible to pick up these free gifts they could be gone. However, whatever items that will be offered at that time will be of such quality that you will not be disappointed. Hit the subscribo, you won’t be sorry!

This concludes my second “Free Footwear Day” post, thank you for reading Fab Free and I hope today you find something that you enjoy wearing for a long time. Until next time, have fun and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

A Booty Call From WHC!

hoorenbeek biker boots 3_001

After years of hearing about “booty calls,” I finally get to make one! This one goes out all the freebie foragers reading Fab Free: The Hoorenbeek subscribo gifts have changed again and the items available are spectacular! Pictured above are the UNISEX gritty black Mesh Heritage boots, now available for FREE from Hoorenbeek. Using a system different from most subscribos, in order to obtain these great boots, you need to go and click to subscribe. Then, wait two weeks and go back to pick up your gifts. As you can see from the picture, these boots are worth the extra effort. They are black with realistic dirt stains, just like my boots in real life (except on Second Life you don’t need glue to apply the dirt – I like my real life clothes to look as realistic as I can possibly make them look). The gift contains 4 different variations of the Heritage boots: regular (with or without socks), tall and short. This is an impressive package for a free gift, and the boots themselves are very detailed and lifelike. If you are already in the Hoorenbeek subscribo, run to pick these boots up. If you aren’t, then now is the time to get your name in the system. Hoorenbeek gifts are almost always excellent.

I was excited to do The Biker Hunt and, in the process, I found some noteworthy boots. MayCreations’ gift for The Biker Hunt are the Mesh Hunter boots in grungy black, shown in the picture above. They feature finely textured black leather with silver accents, including thin studded decorative bands in the ankle area that give these boots a very distinctive look. I also love the sharply pointed toe. Although MayCreations doesn’t specifically mention them being Unisex, I imagine they would look fantastic on a female avy as well as a male one. The boots do have a resizer in them. Also, a great bonus to this gift is that it includes a slink male version for those who can use it. I am always snapping up slink items for when I can finally afford to add slink to my avy, so I find gifts like this especially exciting to pick up. The Biker Hunt is a 1L hunt that continues until July 20th, and the item you are looking for is a motorcycle headlamp.

If you haven’t had enough booty already, there’s one more store you should call on. The white leather boots shown in the picture are from Forsaken Falls, another hunt prize on The Biker Hunt. Their great pebbled-grain white leather texture looks intriguing and carries a black abstract design that I found hard to interpret. The markings on the Mesh Biker Boots seem to incorporate skulls and such, but they aren’t overly obvious. If this kind of style influences your clothing choices, then take a good look at the boots up close. They have a unique style to their texture that separates them from a lot of boots out there, and for a 1L hunt prize, they are definitely worth a good look. I was very pleased with them.

Finally, this week I want to highlight the photo prop I used in making this post. It was created by Mrs. B. Designs, who offers it as their prize in the Biker Hunt. The Easy Rider motorcycle is non-driveable, but looks great for photos and comes with a couple’s pose that I chose not to use this week simply because I was using the bike to display the boots. In the pictures this week, I tinted it slightly beige to simulate it being a bit dirty. If you collect photo props like I do, this is a very nice addition to your collection, I highly recommend it. Three different sets of fabulous boots in one week? Not bad for my first booty call, if I do say so myself! Until next time, see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Guest Blog by WHC Riler – It’s Worth The Wait.

A guest post by WHC Riler – It’s Worth The Wait., originally blogged [HERE]

I am so excited! It’s shaping up to be a fantastic month to be a resident of Second Life. There are free haunted houses and other scary builds, Halloween themed dances and it is an extremely active month for freebie/bargain hunters. Yesterday, I received word that the FREE GROUP GIFTS from HOORENBEEK have changed, so I rushed over to check them out. They have an unusual policy regarding their gifts, but Hoorenbeek is an excellent store and the gifts are fantastic. In order to be eligible for them you must first join their subscribo and wait two weeks before you can pick up them up. It sounds like it’s a hassle but since it’s a subscribo it won’t tie up one of your group slots, and the gifts from them are of high enough quality that it is worth the extra effort. The gifts do not change every month but since they require a waiting period to pick them up, it’s understandable that they are kept out longer to give people more time to pick them up. This month’s gift is the MESH Montgomery Jacket in gray. It is a perfect jacket for the weather as it turns colder, one that looks as if it will keep you warm during the coldest of days. The details are superb from the realistic lining of the hood to the buttons that could hold the jacket closed. The Montgomery Jacket looks rugged but still maintains a nice civilized look. I should warn you to please read the card included in the gift, it contains a short description of all the included parts and options. That is needed because the options included go beyond merely wearing the jacket open or closed. In the picture I am wearing it open along with the shirt insert and to give it a more complete look I grabbed the Gray Classic Tie from Nerd Monkey. The tie was a hunt gift from a previous hunt blogged in my entry “Basic Black? Not A Chance, This Is Exceptional Black!” and has been extremely useful to me. I also wanted to point out the skin I am wearing. It is the Halloween Hunt gift – Vincent at SEVEN DEADLY SKINS, but it’s a group only hunt. The group is 200 lindens to join which sadly makes it outside the scope of this blog, but the owner of Seven Deadly Skins does offer reduced prices to join every so often and I will try to keep track of when that happens to give everyone a heads up. If you already belong to the group, do the hunt, the skin is very nice. If you don’t already belong and don’t have the money to join, no worries. I will keep my eyes open for a better chance for you to join. Izara is very generous with her group gifts and Seven Deadly Skins is a good group to belong to. The Vincent gift comes with and without the hair base and is one of my favorite skins, so I imagine you will see me wearing it often. The hunt is on until Halloween, have fun and see you on the grid.
