March Comes In Like A Rabbit!

whc ashburylavarock 1

Happy Wednesday, everyone! Here we are in March with a whole new set of hunts and group gifts to pick up! When you do what I do, the beginning of a new month is always the most exciting period. Don’t forget what they say: March comes in like a rabbit, scurrying around picking up free gifts, and goes out like a rabbit, too! A much heavier one, weighed down with a glut of new inventory items, but still a rabbit!

Ashbury Designs is a very nice place to get male clothes. They are on my list of must visits at the beginning of a new month, and for good reason. Ashbury Designsfree group gifts have a way of making a home for themselves in my inventory and certainly their current one is a fine example. The Ace Military Shirt is a one piece mesh combo. Comprised of an open blue denim shirt with a very subtle camouflage pattern and a black T-Shirt, it is a simple look which looks very real-world plausible. Comfortable looking, it comes in 3 Mesh sizes, 2 Fitmesh and one Fitmesh for TMP bodies. The shade of blue of the shirt is beautiful and the detail and texture is extremely attractive! This is one free group gift you definitely should not pass up.

Lavarock has a new store and I am truly happy to welcome them back! For those of you who read my autobiography, you will recall I became a blogger partially because of a great free group gift Lavarock produced. I simply did not have enough friends on SL to tell about it, so I began blogging! I was thrilled when my editor, Andi, told me there was a new group gift in their store and I assure you it is excellent! The Urban Male Sneakers are a pair of Hi-top shoes for regular avy feet, so everyone can wear them if they like. In fact, since there is a woman’s version out in the women’s area at Lavarock as well, nearly everyone can wear them! They are Mesh and extremely cool. The most spectacular thing about them is the texture change hud! These sneakers come with a MONSTER HUD which gives you access to 15 sneaker textures, 5 laces, 5 tongues, 5 straps, 6 sock variations including hide and 2 sole colors. EPIC work on the hud, Lavarock. Thank you very much! For a free group gift, a hud like this is rare and these shoes are going to be keepers. Go get ‘em, people!

That’s all for me tonight. Rest assured I will be hopping around the grid picking up more freebies and cheapies tomorrow. Until then, I hope you take advantage of all the fun Second Life has to offer. See you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

The Men’s Only Hunt Part 2

whc moh 4c_001

This week I will share with you even more of the wonderful prizes I found on the FREE Men’s Only Hunt! The hunt object you are seeking resembles the item I spend a lot of time seeking in real life, a tall golden glass of beer. The hunt is not difficult and ends on September 13th, so this is your last chance to get your share of these fantastic items.

Let’s start with a pic that actually cools me off just looking at it! Just imagine the cool breeze coming off the water and rustling through the lush greenery, as yet untouched by the wicked embrace of Fall. I am wearing the FREE Men’s Only Hunt Gift from ::K::. The Villa Vest Homme Marsala is a beautifully made mesh T-Shirt and vest combo in a color combination that makes looking cool and breezy, well… a breeze. When I opened it I was surprised to see only a single size similar to FitMesh in the box, and that did concern me, until I put it on. It fits my avy and my small array of test shapes very well! I found the white and pastel pink combination pairs easily with a variety of pants. It’s that versatility of looking good with a wide range of other clothes that makes this a standout garment. For this picture, I chose casual beige chinos from my inventory made by Larnia Couture Designs. I am very pleased with the way the outfit came together. One final note about this item: Included in the box is a female version. So, once again, even though the name of the hunt says “Men’s Only” there are a few gems to be had for the ladies as well.

The Hair I am wearing is a FREE hunt gift from Mina Hair. Their hunt prize for the Men’s Only Hunt is a high quality men’s hair named “Mark” offered in a selection of greys and in both materials enabled and non-materials enabled versions. I like the look of it quite a bit despite the fact that my avy doesn’t usually wear grey hair. The greys are accessible via an easy-to-use hud and Mina Hair has generously left it manually tintable so you also have the option of manually tinting it to further personalize your look. This is a very handsome hair and highly worthy of extra attention from everyone!

As always, this Men’s Only Hunt had a wide variety of items for male avies all over Second Life. So, if chilling on a rowboat on a glassy lake isn’t your thing then maybe this excellent camouflage T-Shirt is more your fashion. The FREE hunt gift from AR2 Style, the Military V-Neck Shirt is a muted camo pattern Tee that looks considerably masculine while maintaining its relaxed styling. The prize includes three sizes plus one in fitted mesh, so fit should be no problem at all. If you are lucky enough to have a mesh body from The Mesh Project, there is a version included for you too. You might not look like a soldier wearing it, but you will definitely look like you can take care of yourself. Truly, that’s all the spiders in my bathroom need to know. This time, it’s WAR!

Also, in my somewhat surreal military patrol pic is another laudable FREE hunt prize from the Men’s Only Hunt. Offered by Le Poppycock, the “Summer Is Dead” Pose comes with props, including the non-firing weapon that is in my hands, and a surfboard with some bullet holes and a bit of blood on it. It is well done and fits superbly into the general theme of the hunt (The End Of Summer).

Music lovers will love the Sound-Man T-Shirt, especially if they have a love of Eighties music. Emblazoned on this T-Shirt from V-Spot is one of the great icons of the Eighties, Pac-Man! Given a slight makeover and sporting some serious head phones, this icon has returned in a soft-looking, well-textured Tee, just the kind I love the most. It is extremely realistic and could appeal to those of us with retro leanings, dj’s, or just people who love music. No matter who you are, this FREE hunt prize will turn at least a few heads your way on the grid.

On my wrist, I am showing off another great FREE hunt prize from the Men’s Only Hunt! The “Sinister” Cuffs from Rebellion are a matching set (left and right) studded black leather bracers adorned with a gothic style cross. The look is very rock and roll, although they are perfectly acceptable gothwear if that is your preferred style. This hunt really did have something for everyone!

These new tattoo sleeves from Swagged Out are yet another FREE hunt gift from the Men’s Only Hunt. I love tattoos that leave plenty of skin unadorned, so a sleeve tat like this is an excellent choice. It covers the arms while leaving the chest and back open either for another favorite tattoo or for a display of gloriously bare skin. The “Good Fortune” tattoo package is offered in faded or fresh ink and includes appliers for TMP, Slink, Signature, Omega and Niramyth bodies.

I have to ask you to take a closer look to see the last item for this week. Click on the above picture to get into my flickr then click one more time to see the close up image. My usual face was used in the military patrol pic, but in the Pac-pic if you look closely at my face, you can see I am wearing an additional item. This fantastic bit of magic is from Unorthodox and is their FREE hunt gift for the Men’s Only Hunt! The Miyagi Facial Hair has 4 facial hair options and comes with the resizable prim beard. The effect on me was to give more definition to the facial hair i already had while adding a prim beard to give me a more updated look. The hunt prize also comes with a Hud, a TMP applier and instructions making this a very generous package for us hunters to snap up. Hunt prizes like this are rare, and if you are a male avy on SL you should go get this free gift immediately. One day, it just might be the perfect thing to give you that extra realistic look.

The hunt kept me busy and I am sorry to see it end. It was another great men’s hunt and, although sometimes I worry about the decreasing availability of quality low cost items for male avies on Second Life, hunts like this help to dispel my fears. There are still a great deal of wonderful items for FREE or very low cost for male avies, you just need to have patience and enjoy the process of hunting for them. Until next time, happy hunting and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler
