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

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
