The Radio Grind at the Wash Cart Sale shows me I don’t need clothes to paint.

Well look at this, it’s Thursday already! I have to admit, my week didn’t start out the best, I was feeling a little under the weather. When feeling like that, there are a few things that make me feel better…finding stuff to show all you fab readers, being creative, and cats. Yup, you heard me. So for my feature post this week, I was able to combine all 3! Go me!

painting1

First of all, I have to tell you about my super cute outfit…well, I’ll call it an outfit, but in reality, it’s a painter’s smock, a cute bra and pantie set, and paint, lot’s of it, which inspired my colourful painting of cats. My Painted Lady look is courtesy of The Rebakery for Radio Grind at The Wash Cart sale that I know you all know is still going on. For a whole L$10, you get a multitude of system layers of body paint, from your head, to your hands to your legs. A bra and pantie set, on your underwear layers, and a mesh smock in the standard sizes. I love the little paint smudges you can have on your face, in RL, I would totally have paint on my face. Here is the Direct TP to the Radio Grind Cart. I will put a picture of the Cart itself at the end of this post so you can check out the other fun offerings they have.

The next piece to my puzzle was a new skin, and with it being the start of another month, new, free group gifts abound! I went with the lovely Gardenia skin from WoW Skins, which is the new September group gift. You get this skin in every tone, with cleavage and noncleavage versions of each. I happen to be wearing tan, without cleavage. For a one time fee of L$350, you can join their group and grab up this beauty, not to mention a box of past group gifts sitting right beside the new one, as well as have access to group only midnight manias, and lucky letter boards. Don’t you just love the pretty pale pink of the lips? This is a very natural look, which I really gravitate towards.

painting2

My final piece, is the fun hair I have on. It is another free group gift, this time from Elikatira. The Lena hair, with the exclusives texture hud that you won’t be able to buy, was sent out to group members on the 1st. It is unrigged mesh, so you can adjust it to fit practically any size head. The group is L$250 to join, but as that is the price of one pack of hair, it pays for itself immediately! I love a great short hairstyle. You may see this on me quite often :)

painting4

See, I was able to get creative, albeit a little messy, paint some cats, and show off some wonderful stuff for all you fabulous readers! Yup, made me feel much, much better. OK, I am off for now, but you know I will be back. Until next time, TTFN *waves*

On The Hunt Once Again!

whc moh razor3_001

Hello, everyone. Welcome to my favorite time of the year in Second Life (which is any time a major men’s clothing hunt is going on). Everyone knows I have been waiting for this hunt for weeks and I am happy to say it has been a highly enjoyable event, providing some excellent quality items. Before describing the items in the above picture, I would like you to click on it. That will bring you to my flickr. Then, click once more to see the picture in its’ original resolution. The reason I invite you to do this is because the more detailed picture, the more impressed you will be with the items’ quality.

The first item I want to show you from The Men’s Only Hunt is the tattoo I am wearing. Honestly, it is the best, most comprehensive FREE gift tattoo I have ever seen. The level of detail in this tattoo is simply unbelievable! Take a close look at the About That Life Tattoo & Sleeves from Inhale and you will probably understand why I am so excited. While the level of detail packed in this tat makes it an excellent hunt gift, there is something else that makes it a must-have hunt item. In addition to being wearable for regular basic avies, it also contains appliers for Omega, Signature and TMP Mesh avies! Inhale has even included a Slink hands version! This is a fantastic tattoo and, if you later decide to go with a Mesh avatar, it is highly likely you will still be able to wear it. The Men’s Only Hunt is a FREE hunt and will be going on until September 13th. Look for the cool, frothy beer hunt object to find your gift. Don’t miss out on this tat!

This is the first time I am posting this style of sweatpants. While undoubtedly popular, they aren’t my usual style in real life. Until now, I have never gotten one in a hunt that was so excellent that I literally HAD to post them! Take a look at these Blue Mack Sweats, the FREE Men’s Only Hunt prize from Razor. I am a long-time fan of their high quality, edgy style of street wear. When I unpacked these sweatpants, I was blown away with their first-rate quality. The material looks soft, and the mesh design looks highly realistic, right down to having a great amount of pocket space. Combine that with the brilliant blue and black colors of the sweatpants and you have another must pickup from The Men’s Only Hunt. I know many Fab Free readers will be interested to learn that this gift includes a FEMALE VERSION in addition to the male one. It isn’t every day I get to catch the ladies’ attention, so thank you very much Razor!

A friend of mine who helped me on the hunt was looking for a cool pair of sunglasses. The Farewell Summer Glasses from 7Mad;Ravens fit the bill perfectly. Dark and stylish, this FREE Men’s Only Hunt gift has a very subtle touch of color across the top of the frame, and WOW, do I love that touch! These glasses look superb and are another item from the above pic that will impress you more the closer you look.

I couldn’t resist going all out for the pic, so I included the FREE Men’s Only Hunt gift from Legal Insanity for a touch of street cred. The Biker Necklace is a tough-looking heavy pair of gold chains. Often gold jewelry on SL can look unrealistic, but this necklace does not suffer from the common mistake of being overly yellow and bright. I was truly impressed with the looks of this pixel treasure from the fine folks at Legal Insanity and I hope you will enjoy it too.

The final item to highlight in the above picture is my new bracelet. A FREE Men’s Only Hunt gift from Apple May Designs, the Men’s Forged Cuffs look fantastic. The texture gives it a hammered by hand look, making it appear to be a piece of finely crafted jewelry. My picture does not even showcase the entire gift. Although I show it on my right wrist alone, the hunt prize actually includes both right and left wrist versions. Both come in two colors: chocolate bronze and steel finish. It is a highly versatile hunt gift, and yet another reason you should be doing the Men’s Only Hunt this month!

whc laundry day 1_001

I usually wear the same type of clothing in Second Life that I would wear in real life, simple like soft cotton T-Shirts and jeans, or something smart and dressy looking. A perfect example of my kind of T-Shirt is this wonderfully textured Dexter Mesh Tee from Sharp By [ZD]. Emblazoned with the words “Laundry Today OR naked tomorrow,” I even feel as if it fits into my rl lifestyle. I am naked a lot of the time, but I am not actually a naturist. I am just too lazy to do laundry very often. For all the guys out there that totally understand where I am coming from, this T-Shirt is for you. It comes in three Mesh sizes and two FitMesh ones, and is actually pre-stained to give it that authentic laundry day apparel look! Like the other items from the Men’s Only Hunt this month, it is FREE for the taking.

Lately, I have been posting a surprising amount of hair. Usually, male hair is a very tough find for free or even extremely inexpensive. It is one of the main challenges as far as building a new male avy for a reasonable price. I don’t know why we have been blessed with such a wide variety of good free hair lately, but I am quite happy about it. My wash day hair is the new FREE Men’s Only Hunt gift from Ayashi. Their Toma hair in black was perfect for this pic, just the right mix of spiky and unkempt for the Laundromat. Remember, for this and all the other items on the Men’s Only Hunt, the hunt object you are looking for is a cool, frothy beer.

Finally, I couldn’t hit the “send” button on this post without mentioning the pose I used for the wash day picture. It is one of three poses included in the FREE Men’s Only Hunt gift from Verocity! It looks excellent and is a pose I will undoubtedly use many more times over the years to show off men’s garments.

Hopefully, that’s enough to tempt you to discover the joys of hunting in Second Life. With patience, it can be highly rewarding. Stay tuned for next week’s continued coverage of The Men’s Only Hunt where I will try to tempt you into hunting by sharing more of the rich treasures to be had for FREE! Until then my friends, see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler

Dark Water Designs is one of those designers that never fails to impress me.

The Bi Annual Wash Cart Sale - Dark Water Designs

And the Cart this designer has set up for us at the Wash’s sale is no exception. I had no trouble picking out what I wanted to show this time. Not because everything wasn’t awesome but because when I saw the Lolita Jumper I was in love! It’s a simple thing but the details are amazing. I love the color, the pattern … just everything. You get the five standard Mesh sizes and the alpha.

Dark Water Designs has some really cool items set out for our guys, too. I’m really taken with the graffiti jeans.

Owlsome At The Wash Cart Sale

cart sale owlsome2_001

Hello, everyone! I went down to The Wash Cart Sale and found this great outfit from Owlsome! “Under Construction” is a two piece outfit consisting of a matching T-Shirt and pants, both in five sizes for a perfect fit. They are available separately on the Owlsome cart for 10L each. As you see, they come in black with yellow warning stripes to complete the “Under Construction” theme. I think it makes me look like an action hero in this pic, which is a nice change. Usually if I wear construction gear, I look like one of the village people. I smiled when I first saw this, so I am happy to be able to share it with all of you. Come on down to The Wash and have a look around, there are plenty of men’s items to be found. Take care everyone and see you at The Wash Cart Sale!

Wash Cart Sale – Loordes of London

OK, I’m back. There is just so much to show you all from The Wash Cart Sale, that I just couldn’t wait until Thursday. This time, I’m showing off the oh-so sexy offerings from the Loordes of London Cart. Remember, everything at the sale is an amazing L$10, and here is the Direct TP to the Loordes of London cart.

LOLWC2

I just love when a cart offers both clothing and shoes, especially when they go together so well. That is what you get from the Loordes of London cart. The super-hot dress I have on, aptly named A Scant Bit, is available in your choice of 5 colours. They are mesh, in the standard sizes. I had to take a picture of the back too, as I just love the ties.

LOLWC3
LOLWC4

My lovely Amherst Leather Pumps are also available in the same 5 colours as the dresses, so you can match them up, or go with a complimentary colour like I chose. These sexy shoes are meant for SLink high feet only. I really like the classic look of these, they are going to go with so many outfits!

LOLWC1

Here is a shot of the cart itself, so you can see all the colours available. You have loads of time to go choose your favourite, but at these prices, I’d just go for them all :P .

The Bi Annual Wash Cart Sale – Rowena’s Designs

The Bi Annual Wash Cart Sale is now in full swing!

cartsale_001

There are so many nifty things this round that I can hardly pick what to show off first! I picked Rowena’s Designs lovely ‘Lilian’ complete set because it just is so stunning. Plus it’s not often I see an entire set that I love every single piece like this one. I’m wearing the Lilian Dress in the five Mesh sizes, plus the shoes for SLink High Feet plus the jewelry set. So that’s just 30L for an entire evening outfit! The jewelry set is a particular bargain, you get the ring, the bracelet, the necklace and the earrings AND a Hud to change up the metal, the accent color and the gem stones.  Both the dress and the shoes come with a color change HUD with six options. This is a LOT of outfit for very little out of pocket.

A little bit of Hunting in Africa, my camera is the perfect shot!

 

Well well…It’s another beautiful Thursday! Hope you all have had a good week since I was last here. I’ve been having to endure renovations at my workplace, and it’s been a little rough. I am so glad I have SL to escape to once I get home. This week, with the help of the African Summer Hunt, I’ve escaped to a whole other continent, Africa! For LM’s to all participating stores, hunt previews, and hints, here’s the link to the hunt website. All hunt prizes are free. So, let me show you a few fun things I picked up while working on this fairly easy hunt.

africa1

My lovely maxi skirt, ruffled top and head wrap are all part of the hunt gift you will find over at Cheeky Parrot Boutique. I just love the store name. For all you male FabFree readers, there is also a men’s gift included. All three pieces of the Nyoka Ladies set are mesh, and excluding the head wrap, which comes in 3 sizes, they come in all the standard sizes. I’ve included a shot with a closer look at my top and the head wrap. The colours and patterns on these pieces really do scream African Summer. I love it!

africa2

The other hunt item I wanted to show off is from BoWillow. My super-cute sunglasses are 1 of 3 pairs you will get when you find the hunt item in store. I happen to be wearing the giraffe pattern, but you also get a zebra pair, and a leopard pair. How much fun is that little bow! While BoWillow mainly focuses on children’s clothing, these sunglasses are mod, and also have a sizing script, so no matter your avie size, you can wear them. BTW, special mention, if you have space to keep it out, the box these glasses come in,  is too adorable. You’ll know what I mean when you unpack your items :)

africa4

The last addition to my African look, is not actually from the hunt. Although I did kind-of hunt for it, on one of my many Marketplace hunts. What did I find, my pretty henna body tattoo. This is a Marketplace L$1 promo offered from AV Ink Tattoo’s, here’s the link. You get a torso tattoo, that I am wearing, as well as a set of hand tattoo’s, which I am not wearing. Both tat’s are system layers, and they really are just delicately simple and pretty. I really wanted something that would match the feeling of my outfit, without going for the typical tribal tat’s, and I thought this fit the bill. Do not be surprised if you see this tattoo showing up in my other posts.

africa3

OK, while I have stayed pretty quite while posing, I think the lions finally noticed me. So I better be heading out. I hope you enjoyed my trip to Africa with me. Who knows where I’ll end up next. Until next time, my lovelies, TTFN!!
