Paisley Day

Paisley Day

Time to fill out your inventory.

The Menstuff Hunt runs through November, and promises, as usual, to fill our manly inventories with lots of essential goodies. My first stop was Brocade Tiger, where I picked up this shirt and tie combo that I admit, won me over immediately. I like the unique Paisley design and was especially happy when I noted on the hunt website that it is an exclusive gift for the hunt. The gift is FREE, meaning it will only cost you a bit of hunting time. Once you find that iconic blue t-shirt, just buy the item for 0L.

The tie is an optional affair.

Put a tie on. Or don’t. Versatility is always nice when it comes to clothing options. And when you can find a quality gift that gives you that extra “oomf” in the versatility department, you know you’ve come across a winner. I especially love items that are unique. This gift from Brocade Tiger comes in all the standard sizes and includes its own alpha. In addition, the shirt and tie are separate, so the tie is optional. The shirt has a nicely detailed button down front, so it looks just as good without the mesh tie as it does with it. I think you’ll agree that this is a gift worthy of your Second Life closet.

GET YOUR HUNT ON

November is proving to be a month for hunting. I took a look at the number of hunts on the grid, and I’m excited to say that I almost didn’t know where to begin. Between the Menstuff Hunt, The Medieval Fantasy Hunt, the El Dia Los Muertos Hunt, and so many others, this month is proving to be a Hunter’s Dream come true! I finally decided to start out my hunting with El Dia Los Muertos, though, since it is traditionally celebrated at the beginning of November, even if the hunt lasts through to the end of November. There are many wonderful prizes to to be had for your hunting time and 1L for each prize.

I made my initial stop by Roped Passion’s, as the creator has never let me down when it comes to creative attire. And as usual, there is a terrific hunt gift set out, and men have not been forgotten. (Ladies there is a gorgeous dress in the prize for you too, but I decided not to wear it in this post. 😉 )

WHAT IS INCLUDED

Your hunt prize includes the Modern Day of the Dead suit for men in all the standard mesh sizes (it is one piece for easy fitting) as well as its own alpha. You will also get a separate and optional mesh mask. The mask is editable as far as resizing to easily fit to different size heads/faces. I did a bit of tweaking to get it to fit to my face without any trouble.

The suit has a terrific texture on the sleeves and cuffs, but also on the back. In order to show you the design on the back, I’m including the vendor advertisement below so you can see the back of the outfit as well. It’s well worth teleporting to the Roped Passion’s main-store to hunt down this 1L prize!

Inside My Skull

Inside My Skull (Shirt)

Gotta Love Events…

Kathryn pointed me toward the Boho Culture Fair, and said that there were gifts to be had. These events are always a fantastic place to pick up gifts, but sometimes it can be hard to find items for us menfolk at them. I was pleasantly surprised when she pointed me in the direction of the Trashed booth, which had out a gift for both women AND men.

You’re Not the Costume Type?

Personally I love the Fall season as well as Halloween, but dressing up in a costume is just not on my agenda. So when I saw the 1L gift from Trashed for men, I was really thrilled. Trashed has out this skull decorated shirt. It is one piece mesh but has the appearance of being a long sleeve white t-shirt with a short sleeve black t-shirt overlay. The great thing about it is that it you’ll be able to wear it after Halloween too, since it could easily pass as “Biker” or “Gothic” with no problem.

Don’t Miss Out!

You’ll want to pick up this gift from Trashed (it comes in all the standard mesh sizes and includes it’s own alpha layer) before November 4th. That’s when the Boho Culture Fair ends. While you’re there, be sure to check out the other booths, there are lots of gifts and goodies to be had from many outstanding designers!

Catch Me in Your Dreams

Catch Me In Your Dreams

More and more amazing designers are offering amazing group gifts for the FabFree Group at their in-world stores. House of Ruby has now offered up a fashionably sexy gift for us fellas that gentlemen will want to get in on. These Torn Boxers for Him come in system layers as well as Slink or Omega Huds. You also get two versions… the “mesh” version I’m showing in the picture above, or the slightly riskier “clear” version that I’m not showing 😉

To pick up this generous FREE gift, simply join the Fabulously Free Group by copying and pasting secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about into local chat. When the link for the group comes up, click it and choose join. Then teleport to House of Ruby and pick up your FREE gift.

Pixel Box is also currently hosing a FREE in-store Group Gift hunt. What does this mean? It means there are 4 group gifts set out that are FREE to group gift members. Join the Pixel Box group FREE, wander around the store and find the gifts and they are yours FREE. I’m sporting the Gothic dreamcatcher necklace in the picture above. I’m pretty sure it’s meant for a female avatar but I discovered that with the resize option, it’s very versatile and manages to be nicely unisex. I found it made a nice match to my new House of Ruby briefs. The other gifts at Pixel Box were just as nice, and included both ladies and gents, and you can’t go wrong with FREE.

Never Too Tired

Never Too Tired

The Men Only Hunt has proven lucrative this month, with lots of amazing gifts for us menfolk to fill out our inventories. I opted for a new hairstyle today, which I picked up from Speakeasy. This FREE gift, is courtesy of the creator as part of the hunt. Just search for the beer and buy it for 0L. It includes two side-swept mesh styles, and huds for a full fatpack of colors. It’s well worth hunting down.

I’m never too tired for a good deal, so I also swung by It’s Gau and picked up the FREE men’s group gift from the back of the store. Join the group FREE and this tattoo you see me wearing is yours FREE. It comes in a system layer as well as appliers for TMP and Signature mesh bodies.

Fall Ready

Fall Ready

With fall in full swing, I decided to update my fall wardrobe with some clothes for cooler weather… as well as go pumpkin patch hunting. I think I found both the perfect pumpkin as well as the perfect sweater.

My sweater is completely FREE courtesy of Breath and the Men Only Hunt. Just head over to Breath and hunt down that iconic beer symbol and buy it for 0L. It comes with it’s own alpha layer if you’re still using a system body. The sweater is one piece with hand warmers included and comes in all the standard mesh sizes for fitting.

It Was a Dark and Stormy Night

Stormy

It was a dark and stormy night…

No wait. That’s just the start of the latest novel I’ve been reading. Scratch that.

It was the eighth of October… another day of the Mens Only Hunt and another great find to put into my inventory. You won’t want to miss out on this outstanding mens leather jacket from Gabriel. It’s FREE other than the cost of your hunting time. Once you find the iconic beer, you’ll get this jacket in standard, Slink, and TMP fits, and the box also includes and alpha for standard avatars. I really like the zipper details and the asymmetrical collar.

I paired this jacket with some men’s jewelry I picked up at Chop Zuey. The men’s group gift there (the Gibraltar Necklace in silver) is top quality and resizable. Ladies you might like it too. The group is 350L to join but the gifts are top notch and frequently given, making the group well worth joining.

Easy To Warm Up To

Flamable

It’s getting colder and with the chill air moving in, I was pleased to score some men’s outerwear FREE that was a hot, hot deal. If you stop by Tori’s Stylez, you too can pick up the Tod Denim Hoodie Jacket in Black.

This is a mesh coat in all the standard sizes, which also includes a good alpha layer as well as a bonus system layer tank top if you want to use it (shown in the picture above as well). You’ll need to don your SL Frees & Offers Group tag to snag the gift, but the group is FREE to join, making this an item for your inventory that won’t cost you a single Linden. That is a deal easy to warm up to.

Heartbreaker

Heartbreaker

House of Ruby has out a new line of T-shirts for men and they are real heartbreakers in the making… you can get one in the color blue for the promo price of just 56L off the Marketplace. The shirt comes in system layers as well as Slink and Omega Appliers for mesh bodies.

I did some checking around and paired the colorful T-shirt with facepaint which I found as a past group gift at Zibska. In fact there is an entire wall out of past group gifts that include make up, jewelry, and more. The group is 200L to join, but it’s a one time fee, and after joining, you’ll be able to fill your inventory with lots of boxes to open. The Marsh face paint comes in a full fatpack of 7 colors and you’ll get system layers as well as and Omega applier for mesh heads.

I tossed on an oldie but goodie to finish off the look… Wicca’s Wardrobe is another group that leaves out their past group gifts for customers to enjoy. I’ve blogged these Ares pants before but it’s worth mentioning that for your 50L join fee at Wicca’s Wardrobe you’ll gain access to many past group gifts for both men and women… like these excellent quality pants.
