LaVian&co Salutes The Armed Services!

whc lavian military 2_001
Next Wednesday is Veteran’s Day, a time to honor everyone who has answered the call to serve their country in the U.S. Armed Forces. Just in time, LaVian&co has a great set of military inspired outfits offered in their men’s group gifts. LaVian&co, renowned for classy women’s clothing with a high-end sense of style, has entered into the men’s clothing market with the new LaVian Male group. Like its sister group, the men’s group offers a huge selection of free group gifts. At the moment, the group join will set you back 99L, but if the group follows its sister group’s business model, you can anticipate the group join will eventually climb, making it a likely bargain at this price.

Several of the group gifts are worthy of mentioning here (after all, I did pick up thirty-eight group gifts). For now, I will concentrate on my favorite outfits; those which salute the United States Military. There are five outfits in this series, each one devoted to a branch of the United States’ Armed Services, including The Coast Guard. Each outfit consists of a brown leather jacket with appropriate patches on the front and an extremely eye-catching full color graphic on the back. On the left in the above picture, you see the front of the US Marine Corps jacket and on the right a side view of the Army jacket. I chose that side view so you can see the patches on the front and a hint of the beautiful graphic on the back of that jacket at the same time. The best way to appreciate these jackets is to click on them twice and see the full-size images in my flickr.

In the second picture, you can see the front of the Navy jacket along with the fantastic T-Shirt texture. These jackets all come in five sizes, including two fitmesh sizes. They can be worn with or without the T-Shirt. Next to the Navy jacket is the back of the Air Force jacket in full color. This set of jackets has some very awesome artwork. Even if you aren’t American, or have no interest in military matters, this series of group gifts is a great pickup. Each of these outfits comes with a very nice pair of Mesh Jeans in five sizes, an excellent addition of classic jeans to any man’s wardrobe. You get great basic men’s jeans in four colors (one color is used twice) even if you don’t care for the jackets! To round out these group gifts, they even include a pair of military boots. This is a fantastic set of gifts!

I strongly suggest you go take a look at LaVian Male. The group join is steeper than I usually care for, but for the number of group gifts you get, plus the likelihood that there will be many more in the future, 99L is likely to be a very good investment for most male avatars. Take care everyone and I’ll see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

sn@tch up these Fabfree HQ gifts!

YAY! The brand new Fabfree HQ is open, and it looks amazing! XiuLan really did a fantastic job of decorating! In addition to the gorgeous new building, which Love showed off this morning [HERE], there are also gatchas to be played, and all new gifties up on the walls! Xiu showed off a ton of the gifts that the HQ has to offer [HERE], and I’m here to show off a few more that are a couple of my favourites!

sn@tch up these Fabfree HQ gifts_001

Firstly, the Thrilling mesh jacket from Mary Cakes is just fantabulous. I love the studded details, and the deep red colour, and it pairs really well with…

sn@tch up these Fabfree HQ gifts_002

The Mona leather tank and Vela jean capris from none other than Sn@tch! The splatter on these pants is really great, and the whole outfit would be perfect for anyone looking for something a little more “urban”. Both this outfit, and the jacket above, can be found for FREE at the brand new Fabfree HQ!

kosh nails hud

My nails, which I forgot to snap a shot of, are on sale for $L10 right now from Kosh, in their marketplace shop. The listing says you can grab them free if you’re an inworld group member, but the group does cost $L22 to join. To me they’re definitely worth it either way, since you get all of the designs above in fingernails AND toenails!

sn@tch up these Fabfree HQ gifts_003

The skin I’m wearing here is one of Wow Skins‘ easter egg hunt prizes, and it was previously shown by Love [HERE]! The prizes are not free, in fact this one is the “golden egg” prize and actually costs $L50, however, in the “golden egg” pack you get 2 skins, freckles, teeth, a shape, and appliers for everything, so it’s actually a really fantastic deal!

A walk in the woods

Snapshot

I’m not sure about everyone else here in the Northern hemisphere, but personally I am hoping and praying for warm weather to finally arrive soon. Early spring is a great time for a walk in the woods, wearing your comfiest clothes. This cozy looking hoodie is this month’s group gift at !go! It looks adorable worn alone, or with a tank layered underneath. (as seen here) Also for a limited time there is another color of this same hoodie on sale for half off in their main store, so it’s a great time to pick up another color of hoodie if you find you like this one.

When I saw the previews of the Lady Dark Hunt gift from Bri Underground Wear I just had to rush over and get it. Not only do you get the clothes, but this outfit also includes this silver anarchy necklace, and a matching belly tattoo, which comes on both clothing and tattoo layers for easier layering.

Snapshot

Also included are these boots, and if you are hooked on black boots like I am, they only add more appeal to an already awesome outfit.

Keeping Warm with Rispetto

rispetto1_Final
Rispetto Designs
wants to keep you warm during the chilly months ahead and has several new coats for sale. Their October Group Gift is the Moda Mesh Jacket in Orange. You can wear it without a shirt or with a black shirt. I’ve paired it with a pair of Mesh Boot Cut Jeans in Black also from Rispetto that only cost 75L. The Rispetto Designs group costs 50L to join, but they have new group gifts every month and 50L is less than the regular price of one of the new jackets.

But it wouldn’t be Fab Free without some free stuff. So Kal Rau also has on offer for their group members a Full Mesh Outfit and V.I.P Keychain. The outfit includes the Mesh V-Neck Shirt that comes with a HUD to easily color change it to any color you wish along with the Mesh Green Shorts.
