This is the “Lemon Bar” dress, it’s the Hunt prize for More Than Ever’s Cart. I love the cool lemon yellow and the disk detail on the neck are really unusual.

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL here-comes-summer-full-perm-hunt-posterHappy Friday my Fabulous Friends! Summer will be officially here on Sunday… summer solstice… the longest day of the year. Well, for those of us in the northern hemisphere anyway. If you live down under, then it’s mid winter. But that’s neither here nor there. There are a bunch of great hunts going on anyway, and many of them have a summer theme… or at least make a nod in that direction.

We’re starting to see more full-perm hunts, which is great if you’re a builder or a content creator. Check out the Here Comes Summer or the Keep Calm & BBQ Full Perm hunts if you like full-perm stuff.

Both FabFree and HUNT SL have excellent pages if you want to get started with hunting if you haven’t been before, and some great tips even if you’re a veteran hunter.

Check out all these hunts and find the one that’s right for you. Poking the names will lead you to more information.

See you out on the hunt!

Back to the Beach

Ahhhhh, the weekend is finally here!  And with it… I have returned to the beach. Where, like MZ. Love said, “It’s all peace, love and sandy feet!

BBQ_001

One of my favorite things to do when we lived out in California, was spend all day playing on the beach with our family then building a bonfire to cook out.  So when I saw this adorable ‘Sunshine Beach Set’ from Park Place Home Decore was a prize for the 2L ‘Keep Calm and BBQ’ Hunt I knew I had to have it.  The set comes with the cute chair loaded with  20 poses, the stripy towel also loaded with 13 poses and props PLUS the Picnic Basket.

I also found this cute outfit, ‘Lexington’ from Euphoria Couture, on the Hunt. The set comes with the denim shorts. the red checkered halter top and the red sandals for Slink flat feet. Everything you need for a day on the warm sands.  Last, but not least, I picked up these sweet treats ‘I Scream’ nails from Weaponized Sugar. They are for Slink hands and there is an applier for system hands as well.

BBQ_002

My gorgeous hair is not part of the Hunt but I wanted to tell everyone who loves hair styles about it anyway! Truth Hair is having a huge sale with over 100 styles all marked down to 50L per color pack. This is ‘Aradhana’ and it comes with the color change HUD for the hair band so it will fit lots of your outfits. I don’t know how long this awesome sale will last so hurry over and stock up!

HUNT SL welcometosummeradjpgI do believe summer is here. It’s hot hot HOT… 103F forecast for my neck of the woods today. So yes, summer is here. It’s a good time to stay inside with the air conditioning, a cold drink, and your computer screen. In other words, a good time to do some hunting.

There are plenty of hunts to go on too, and lots of themes. Steampunk… check. Beaches… check. Pajamas… check… and lot’s more to choose from.

Both FabFree and HUNT SL have excellent pages if you want to get started with hunting. So read up before you exit through your front door.

So check out the list for the hunt that’s just right for you. Point and click the names for more info on each hunt.

Blogger Attempts To Increase Popularity By Appearing Nearly Naked!

whc slavie lkd 1

With all the lovely Fab Free bloggers, I’m sure you will all be disappointed that the nearly-naked one is me. However, since I already have your attention, here is another helping of amazing prizes from the Menstuff Hunt. It is a 1L hunt, but many of the stores have put their prizes out for free! I realize that the outfit I am wearing will not appeal to every male avy on the grid. Some of us have very few opportunities to wear something like this. Being a blogger, though, is about helping all people find wonderful items. A great set of silks like this could come in handy one day for a rowdy intimate role play or a costume-based event, even if you are not naturally submissive. The Kanzi Silks in Brown from Lo Kajirus Designs are partially mesh, with flexi silk panels which move beautifully as you dance. In style, they have an Asian inspired design while maintaining a classic silk look appropriate for this kind of garment. This is a very sexy look, has tons of style and is a great item to pick up at only 1L.

In all of the pictures in this post, I am wearing a set of eyes I picked up in the Menstuff Hunt over at Avi-Glam. The FREE AG Frozen Eyes are a beautiful light silvery blue and are going right into my eye collection. I am especially excited because I was unfamiliar with Avi-Glam until now, so now I have another potential source of excellent quality eyes thanks to this hunt!

This pose is another prize from this Menstuff hunt. Hopefully, you are getting the idea of how broad the spectrum of hunt prizes is in this one-hundred-store hunt. The M-Sheer-Menstuff-10 from Pics n Poses is a particularly nice pose, best used highlighting the left shoulder and chest of the model. I used it turning slightly, to show more of the details in the front of the Kanzi Silks, and it worked nicely. This is a very nice FREE gift from the people at Pics n Poses.

whc gray pin suit 1_001

Slipping into something a little more comfortable (for you to see me in), this really great gray suit is the FREE Menstuff Hunt prize from (Red)Sand. The Pin Stripe Suit in gray is a set including a matching mesh pin stripe blazer and slacks. The blazer has the black, open-collar dress shirt integrated into it, and (Red)Sand thoughtfully included an optional gap hiding layer, just in case you need it. As it turns out, I did not. The fit was excellent on my avatar without it. The material looks soft and comfortable; it will go nicely in my smart casual wardrobe for those nights that call for a bit more than a T-Shirt and jeans.

whc oddity orn 4_001

Oddity is an excellent store on Second Life and has created some truly amazing items, including a pair of group gift boots that are SO good, I changed the rules of my blog just so I could write them up! For the Menstuff Hunt, their prize is this unique fitmesh shirt featuring an excellent texture hud that they are giving to us for FREE! The Eivissa Mistic BASIC Shirt is definitely casual but highly attention getting with the realistic cloth textures and rich, decorative detailing. The buttons appear to be metal, standing out from the shirt and the button holes are closed loops, an eye-catching touch. The best part about the shirt, though, is the texture hud that comes with it. It offers the shirt in six colors, the trim in six colors, the buttons in six colors, plus it has two options for brightness and the choice of it being materials-enabled or not! If there was an award for most fantastic hud on Menstuff Hunt prize, Oddity would win it hands down for creating this prize!

The black jeans I chose to help show off this shirt are part of the Menstuff hunt prize from Wilson’s Designs. These are simply styled and carry a nice black denim texture making them a good choice for a go-to mesh set of basic black jeans. That isn’t all you’ll find in the hunt prize over at Wilson’s Designs. These jeans come with a gray, zippered men’s jacket, too, making the hunt prize even greater. For a FREE hunt prize, this is a very good pick up as well.

My last highlighted item this week comes from a creator who is one of my personal favorites. Over the years, Etham has made – and yes, even given away as hunt gifts – some gorgeous crosses. For this Menstuff hunt they have given us the Knight Cross Necklace in gold and black. Although it would look especially great in a Goth style outfit, it is still simple enough to be worn with more casual clothes. The Knight Cross Necklace comes with a short or long chain version and is offered to us for FREE from Etham.

I began this week’s post nearly naked; slithering about to some intoxicating world beat music under the glare of the hot desert sun, and managed to end the post sharing with you my affinity for the crosses Etham has produced over the years. I, my friends, am not easily pigeon-holed. As a blogger, that means I am inclined to share a wide variety of items instead of just those that are “my style”. Or, it might just mean I am crazy. Either way, have fun looking for the little blue T-Shirts that hold the Menstuff prizes in them, and I will be seeing you on the grid very soon!—–WHC Riler

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Explore ValyniaGood morning fabulous friends! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Wednesday, June 10.

Summer is the prevalent hunt theme right now. Go figure. You can partake of a bunch of different summer themed hunts, so grab your swimsuit, beach towel, and flip-flops and get some hot weather hunting done.

The Explore Valyria Hunt is the top hunt this week. It’s a sim hunt, but what a bunch of great stores in this sim…Etchaflesh, 7 Deadly Skins, KlubWerk, and Room69! Lots of great prizes to find in this one.

If you’re a her, then the For Her Hunt has been built for you. It’s a L$1 hunt with 22 stops. So a couple hours of hunting will get you all kinds of clothing, shoes, and jewelry. I browsed through the prize pics on the hunt web site and there’s some pretty nice stuff in this one. Too bad I’m a him.

Just a reminder, that these are the 10 most popular viewed hunts over the past 48 hours or so. We don’t know how many people actually start (or finish) any given hunt and this ranking can (and probably will) change in a few hours.

See you out on the hunt!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL menstuffLogo-512It’s always fun when somebody tells you how much they love what you do. I was setting up our build for the SL12B Community Celebration and the area assistant who was helping me with the parcel details saw the exhibits and said “oh… I love hunts! Do you have a group?” It’s warm fuzzies like that which make my day.

There are some dang good hunts going on right now. The June hunts are in full swing. I have to get it in gear and do the Menstuff Hunt. It’s one of my favorites from previous years and the source of about half my wardrobe. No joke!

Both FabFree and HUNT SL have excellent pages if you want to get started with hunting. It’s really pretty easy. If you can walk, cam, and solve clues at the same time, you’ll be a natural. No really… it’s not that hard.

So click the names of the hunts that look interesting to you. You’ll be whisked off to more info.

See you out on the hunt!

When The Judge Is Away…Rawr!

whc menstuff sfd 1

Not many people know that I am a lawyer. Luckily, even fewer people know I am NOT a lawyer! That’s how I got chosen for my own layout in “Hot Lawyers Monthly”! Okay, so maybe I feel a little bad about letting them think I am an attorney, but let’s face it: if they were real lawyers, they would be able to tell that I wasn’t one. So, I am taking my modeling fee all the way to the bank… or McDonald’s if there is a line at the bank. I hate lines.

On the First of June, one of the best male hunts of the year began. The Menstuff Hunt features a one-hundred-store lineup and is on all month long. If you are new to doing store hunts, now is the perfect time to give them a try. I can think of a hundred reasons why you should. The hunt is not free. It is technically a 1L hunt, but the organizers allowed stores the option of not charging for their prizes and more than 2/3 of them are FREE! You are looking for an object shaped like a blue T-Shirt, inside of which your prizes await.

For my hot magazine layout, I wore the Menstuff Hunt Prize from SF Design, the Finsbury Outfit. This one-piece Mesh outfit features the shirt, dress pants and suspenders all together in one garment. It really makes looking good very easy when all the pieces are integrated into one item. It makes dressing a snap! You would think that with those items all put together in one prize, the designer might make compromises along the way, but not SF Design. The shirt is well textured and has realistic buttons. The suspenders seem to be in front of the shirt not painted on it. Last but not least, the pants have a classy pinstripe texture. Quality and convenience, it’s all there. Oh, and one last thing… it’s FREE!

I wanted a little something extra to help sell the “I know about law stuff” look I was going for and the Menstuff hunt prize from X-Sight was just what I needed. The X-Sight Geek Glasses in Charcoal lend an air of studiousness that normally can only be acquired by, well… studying. Trust me, finding a hunt object in a store is a lot easier than actually studying. They make a fine accessory to complete a variety of outfits and are also generously offered to us for FREE.

whc illi beach 2_001

One of my favorite stores on the grid is Illi. When I heard they were participating in the Menstuff Hunt, I knew that was going to be one of the highlights of the hunt. They did not disappoint me. Their Menstuff Hunt 2015 outfit makes for fantastic beachwear. The Mesh tank top is a style I have never seen before. It hangs loosely and has front pockets like some hoodies I own. It makes for a very interesting variation of a tank top that looks great! The shorts are nicely shaped and highly detailed, right down to the plaid cuffs which are actually held up by a strap and a button. I don’t know how often that kind of detail appears in board shorts, but I can tell you it surprised me when I noticed it. The final part of the outfit are the sandals. The ones I am wearing are the classic ones and fit regular avy feet. If you are lucky enough to have Slink feet, The Mesh Project or Aesthetic bodies though, Illi has included versions of them for you in this hunt prize, too! It is an excellent gift and another wonderful FREE gift on the Menstuff hunt.

Male avies always have a problem finding inexpensive hair, and I was very pleased to see that Jaryth’s Barber Shop has a very cool hair on the Menstuff hunt. It is the David Mesh Hair and comes with a hud which gives you a choice of five shades of brown. The sides of the head are cut very short and handled with a hairbase. The top is grown out longer and looks just spiky enough to give it a cool, rebellious look. Cool men’s hair is a tough find and this one is FREE so it’s definitely worth grabbing.

My tattoo is also from the Menstuff hunt. It is the bio mech tattoo from B*FLY Tattoos. It comes in normal and faded ink variations and also has an applier in the gift (if you happen to have a body from The Mesh Project). The design is reminiscent of the kind of artwork H.R. Giger became world renowned for: featuring patterns of what could be bone, muscle and tendons in a beautiful, surrealistic way. I love this style of art and this FREE tat definitely has found a home in my inventory.

The final item on this my first post covering the Menstuff hunt 2015 is the Moonwake necklace from Rebellion. This silver chain is very well detailed, giving it a highly realistic look. The design is definitely masculine, and would look especially great with a street thug kind of look. It is not free, but for only 1L, I absolutely recommend picking it up. Well, that’s it everyone, I am gonna settle in for a nice nap on the beach and dream about all the other items I will find on the Menstuff hunt this year. Until next time, see you on the grid! —–WHC Riler
