Menstuff Ahoy!

whc LKD pirate 1 a

whc LKD pirate1 b

Ahoy Matees! ARGGH…cough, cough, cough. Okay, That’s about the extent of my pirate role-play. It’s the “Argghs” that kill me. It’s hard to sound sexy when you start coughing and flailing your arms wildly in international amateur sign language for “I am ok, don’t call an ambulance”. That can kind of take the sexy out of things.

Luckily, the clothes can bring the sexy back and that’s what I like most about the outfit I’m wearing from Lo Kajirus Designs. The “Like A Pirate Mesh Slave Outfit” Menstuff Hunt gift comes role-play ready for daring adventurers, club hoppers and cabin boys across the grid. It is a highly unique outfit and consists of Mesh pantaloons, jewelry, Mesh eye-patches, a collar (both scripted and non-scripted) and a colorful belt sash. The pantaloons come in five sizes for a good fit, and the accessories are fun and quite attractive. Overall, the quality of the outfit is impressive and for only 1L, it’s a bargain. It doesn’t matter if your pirate vessel is a schooner or a shopping cart, it’s the clothes that make the man O’war! Aye, prepare to be boarded!

Seven Deadly s{K}ins is offering the Menstuff Hunt Bowie Skin in both taupe and walnut tones with and without hairbases as their free hunt prize. Heavily freckled and with super realistic facial hair, they are considerably handsome skins. I was quite impressed with the quality as well as the fact that 7DS also includes appliers if you are lucky enough to have slink hands and feet. The Bowie skin is definitely an excellent pick up for those of us looking for an quality skin upgrade for free!

whc piratecart FE Style 2_001

As I sailed through the calm seas of the Menstuff Hunt, I encountered this wonderful Jacket and Shirt Combo from FE Style. The Wekleh Jacket w/T-Shirt is a one piece mesh evocative of maritime clothes in an entirely different way. The simple, understated styling gives a classic masculine look for any male avi. Offered in four sizes, one of which is Fitmesh, a fine fit without any fuss will be easy to accomplish. Perfect for the dock or the deck, this 1L hunt prize is certainly a first-class item to grab.

The Menstuff Hunt is a 1L hunt but only 31 stores elected to charge for their gifts. The hunt object you are looking for is a blue T-Shirt and can be small, so follow any hints that have been posted on the Menstuff Hunt page. You will not find a better run Men’s hunt on Second Life. So ends this chapter in my Menstuff voyage for now, take care everyone and a quick reminder that Valentine’s Day approaches. Enjoy SL and I will see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Surprise!

Greetings FabFree Folks!

Surprise

I’ve been hunting today and ‘Surprise’! I found some cool things!  Well, maybe not such a surprise but I did go on the Surprise Pack Hunt. This cute dress is the Hunt prize from Veronica’s Secrets. It’s meant to be a dress but I really like the long tunic look so I paired it with some jeans. The Mesh dress comes in the standard sizes XXS-L and includes an alpha layer.

It’s no surprise I had to have there shoes from Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes. ‘Kharis’ is the 1L prize on the Surprise Pack Hunt as well. The mesh shoes are compatible with system feet so no need for the Mesh feet if you don’t have them.

The Surprise Pack Hunt from MssJewell runs until January 30 so don’t delay that will be upon us very soon!

Grumbly Mondays

Hello FabFree Folks!

Grumbly Monday

I hope your Monday is full of good things today.  If you’re in need of a break from your Monday… I suggest Grumble.  No, don’t grumble about Monday… go to Grumble and play the Grumble Lucky Number 16 Hunt.  There are sixteen female gifts scattered over the SIM for Hunters all for 1L each. I found this elegant Winter Knit dress and couldn’t resist it. The dress comes in standard Mesh sizes XS-L and has a good alpha layer.  This ‘sweet sixteen’ Hunt runs until January 31st so don’t delay.

Grumbly Monday

While I was on the Hunt I found this great snowflake necklace at Glint. The “Falling Snowflakes Necklace” was actually the prize for the Gingerbread Hunt now ended. However, as of this posting,  the prize is still out at Glint.  Be aware, this Hunt is over and Glint can remove the prize at any time. So if you missed it and want it… hurry over now!

Resting With My Reindeer

Resting With The Reindeer

Winter is not quite over yet… and I found a great accessory to prove it! Right now, if you go to the Jinx Fantasy Store location, you can join the group FREE and get this amazing wearable AFK reindeer (with pose) group gift for FREE. It’s modifiable, so if you have a little bit of editing skills, you can make the ‘afk’ sign part invisible (like I did) and just lay down with your new reindeer in the snow for a very nice fantasy feel! I included a picture of the gift advertisement below, so you could see what the item looks like with the ‘afk’ tag on it too. It is a really terrific prop all the way around!

I also did a bit of hunting, and for just 1L picked up this Pearl Lingerie bodysuit by OMG! Inc. as part of the Cute and Curvy Hunt. The details on it are amazing, and even though it only comes in system layers, I just fell in love!

Key Thing

Heyya FabFree-ers! Happy Weekend!

Key to my heart

 

I’m using my weekend off time to do some Hunting and I found this cute casual look I had to share. Thanks to the 1L ‘Key to my Heart’ Hunt from Perfect Seduction, I found a new to me designer : Kustom Kulture.  And that’s where I found this great casual Valentine’s sweater. The ‘Off Shoulder Sweater’ comes in Mesh sizes XXS-L and includes appliers for Maitreya and SLink mesh bodies.

Key to my heart

My cute purse is from Grumble. This is the heart Purse in red and it’s also on the Key to my Heart prize list. The details are really nice and smooth and it comes with a hold animation.

The Key To My Heart Hunt runs until February 16th for your hunting pleasure.

An Avalanche Of Menstuff Begins!

whc winter rispetto 01

Greetings from the Arctic Circle! Well actually it’s the East Coast of the United States, but this weekend you can’t tell the difference. We are getting slammed with the white, fluffy stuff as I write this; and with some luck, I just might have electricity on long enough to get this posted!

Menstuff is, in my opinion, the best male hunt of the year. It is a 1L hunt, although some stores have opted to set their prizes out for free! The hunt object to look for is a dark blue T-Shirt shaped object. While they can be small, they are usually not hard to find.

The fantastic Trent Mesh Sweater in Charcoal from Rispetto Designs is where we begin the Menstuff coverage. This sweater has a heavy wool texture to help you look toasty, and the styling is simple and masculine. Click the above picture twice and get a good look at the texture. It’s marvelous! It is offered in five sizes for an easy fit. I found the Mesh looked flawless on me. Also, Rispetto Designs includes the Logoro Mesh Jeans in Blue/Grey in the Menstuff Hunt prize which are excellent and would be a solid garment to have building a casual wardrobe. They are realistically textured and come in five sizes also for a good fit. This is a prize that should not be ignored, especially if you are a new resident to second life! Items like these will have you looking great in no time and for only 1L!

As I said, I have been hit in real life with one heck of a snowstorm! It is extremely cold here, so when I saw the 1L Open Cardigan W/Shirt Menstuff Hunt prize from Hanauma Bay Clothiers, I had to smile. Not only is it super good looking and well made, but it is a mesh piece layering two sweaters! This is a beautiful one-piece Mesh featuring a cardigan style sweater over a pull-over styled one. Offered in five sizes, two of which are fitmesh, it will fit your avy quite nicely. Take it from me, the man wearing his entire real life wardrobe as he shovels the driveway, two sweaters are way better than one! Reminds me of the time I was driving down Lee Highway and a police car came up next to me. I heard the cop’s voice say, “Pull over!” I was so happy, I turned so he could see better and said “And a cardigan too! Hi-5!” It is always nice when someone notices a great looking garment on you.

I debated whether to include the free Beautiful Dangerous Menstuff hunt prize, the Danny Sweater in Paynes Gray in this post or not. Truthfully, were I not racing a certain power outage, I would hold it for another entry. Why? There certainly isn’t anything wrong with the quality or the styling of this great sweater. No, it is simply that I felt the picture does not show it off as well as I would have liked. This is a beautiful sweater, masculine and simply styled to go with almost anything. It appears to be made of lighter material than the heavier texture of the Rispetto sweater, making it perfect when the weather is a bit on the cool side rather than a snowy landscape in the above picture. This is a sipping-brandy-by-the-fire kind of sweater and, as such, is very well executed. It is offered in five sizes for a good fit, and is a welcome addition to my wardrobe. The Menstuff Hunt is a 1L hunt but Beautiful Dangerous has put their hunt item out for free!

All these sweaters would be excellent pick ups and very solid parts of a male avy’s wardrobe. Menstuff has been an excellent hunt for me so far, ranking as the very best in terms of ratio of items kept, versus items deleted. It truly is time to start doing hunts and snapping up some quality goodies! I just noticed that the sound of my teeth chattering reminds me of the old manual typewriter I used to have long ago. Oh the memories! For now I am off to shovel snow and chase any stray penguins out of my yard. Take care, and I’ll see you on the grid (as long as the power stays on)!—–WHC Riler

A little Mod

Happy Friday, Fab Free Folks!

A little Mod

I’m pretty much snowed in here in RL so I’m escaping into SL for the time being.  And what better way to spend the afternoon than on a hunt? Especially when all the prizes are really nifty like in Brii Underground Wear‘s Winter Hunt!

One great thing about Brii’s Hunts is that you get so much in each prize. This is Herta and doesn’t it give you that old  1960’s Mod Squad London feel?  I thought so with the cute bucket hat and short skirt.  trying to keep with that feel, I added Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes ‘Waya’ from the Black and White Hunt. You might recall we saw them on our All Day All Shoes Event here.

The Hunt prize comes with the hat, makeup(not shown), the Mesh dress in the standard Mesh sizes XXS – L, the scarf, the stockings and a pair of sexy high heels for SLink High Feet. (not shown) And it will cost you all of 1L!

The Brii Underground Wear’s Winter Hunt has ten total prizes ( all as gorgeous as Herta) and runs until January 30 so don’t wait too long to get your Hunt on!
