A Booty Call From WHC!

hoorenbeek biker boots 3_001

After years of hearing about “booty calls,” I finally get to make one! This one goes out all the freebie foragers reading Fab Free: The Hoorenbeek subscribo gifts have changed again and the items available are spectacular! Pictured above are the UNISEX gritty black Mesh Heritage boots, now available for FREE from Hoorenbeek. Using a system different from most subscribos, in order to obtain these great boots, you need to go and click to subscribe. Then, wait two weeks and go back to pick up your gifts. As you can see from the picture, these boots are worth the extra effort. They are black with realistic dirt stains, just like my boots in real life (except on Second Life you don’t need glue to apply the dirt – I like my real life clothes to look as realistic as I can possibly make them look). The gift contains 4 different variations of the Heritage boots: regular (with or without socks), tall and short. This is an impressive package for a free gift, and the boots themselves are very detailed and lifelike. If you are already in the Hoorenbeek subscribo, run to pick these boots up. If you aren’t, then now is the time to get your name in the system. Hoorenbeek gifts are almost always excellent.

I was excited to do The Biker Hunt and, in the process, I found some noteworthy boots. MayCreations’ gift for The Biker Hunt are the Mesh Hunter boots in grungy black, shown in the picture above. They feature finely textured black leather with silver accents, including thin studded decorative bands in the ankle area that give these boots a very distinctive look. I also love the sharply pointed toe. Although MayCreations doesn’t specifically mention them being Unisex, I imagine they would look fantastic on a female avy as well as a male one. The boots do have a resizer in them. Also, a great bonus to this gift is that it includes a slink male version for those who can use it. I am always snapping up slink items for when I can finally afford to add slink to my avy, so I find gifts like this especially exciting to pick up. The Biker Hunt is a 1L hunt that continues until July 20th, and the item you are looking for is a motorcycle headlamp.

If you haven’t had enough booty already, there’s one more store you should call on. The white leather boots shown in the picture are from Forsaken Falls, another hunt prize on The Biker Hunt. Their great pebbled-grain white leather texture looks intriguing and carries a black abstract design that I found hard to interpret. The markings on the Mesh Biker Boots seem to incorporate skulls and such, but they aren’t overly obvious. If this kind of style influences your clothing choices, then take a good look at the boots up close. They have a unique style to their texture that separates them from a lot of boots out there, and for a 1L hunt prize, they are definitely worth a good look. I was very pleased with them.

Finally, this week I want to highlight the photo prop I used in making this post. It was created by Mrs. B. Designs, who offers it as their prize in the Biker Hunt. The Easy Rider motorcycle is non-driveable, but looks great for photos and comes with a couple’s pose that I chose not to use this week simply because I was using the bike to display the boots. In the pictures this week, I tinted it slightly beige to simulate it being a bit dirty. If you collect photo props like I do, this is a very nice addition to your collection, I highly recommend it. Three different sets of fabulous boots in one week? Not bad for my first booty call, if I do say so myself! Until next time, see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Born to be Wild in Zibska and ChiChickie!

Greetings!

Today I’m doing something a bit different…I’m combining two of my favorite hobbies in SL…shopping and motorcycle riding.  I wanted to show you this fabulous ChiChickie! Facebook Friends Gift – Fateweaver hair…which is FREE when you go to Facebook and “like” the ChiChickie! page.  All you do is go to the ChiChickie! Facebook page and hit the like button…grab the code from the page and teleport to the ChiChickie! store.  The vendor for the gift is at the entrance to your right…next to the reception area.  Click the vendor and enter the code into the drop down menu and your gift will be delivered.  This Fateweaver hair comes with hairbases and a HUD to change the colors.  ChiChickie! plans to release more gifts, via their Facebook page, so keep your “like” on the page and keep an eye out for notifications from them for more great gifts and deals!
ChiChickie & Zibska Gifts!
I liked the “rocker chic” vibe I got from these reptile patterned Rexa pants…which are the latest group gift (FREE/200L group join) from Zibska.  These mesh pants come with a HUD to give you 8 different pantone colors to choose from.  Zibska is one of those really cool designers that create  cosmetics, jewelry, hair, clothing and fantastic avant garde pieces.  The group has a 200L join fee but the group gifts are VERY generous (you’ll find several on the wall at the landing point…look on the backside of the wall) and the quality of her work is outstanding.  If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary, chic and well made…stop by Zibska.  I finished off the outfit with a sexy red tank top from ::BirdNextDoor:: for only 1L on the Marketplace and these FREE sunglasses from >>KAZZA<< (on a pedestal, to your left, at the landing area).

The motorcycle is from CC CUSTOM CHOPPERS…it was not free but Creep Wolff, the owner/creator, is very professional with helping to customize your bike (I had a custom sissy bar and paint job done),  the group is free to join and they give great gifts at the holidays!  You can also find really well done motorcycles at Black Widow Motors for only 10L each (no group join required).  You’ll also find some great lucky chairs at Black Widow Motors and it is conveniently located on the ROUTE 66 sim …a great place to ride your motorcycle!
ChiChickie & Zibska Gifts!

Grab a bike and head out on the highway…you were born to be wild! ❤ ❤

Make Me Over

Poison - Motor Bike Jacket, TK Designs - Torn Jeans, MayCreations - Outlaw Biker Boots, Tattoo Art - Lotus Tattoo

It’s time once again for the Make Him Over Hunt. The hunt consists of 74 stores that I breezed through last night (with the exception of a few stores that were not quite ready). I put together an outfit from a few stores on the hunt and gave myself a free make over. The Motor Bike jacket is a must have from Poison. The Torn Jeans are the hunt prize from TK Designs. The Outlaw Biker Boots are the gift at MayCreations and the Lotus Tattoo is the gift that can be found at Tattoo Art.

Prodigal has gifted the Kurt Skin. I paired it with the Samson Hair found at Amacci. The Facts Shades is the hunt prize from Kumaki Glasses Style. Stakey provided poses for the hunt. The Aimless Poses can be found in that hunt gift. You must be a member of the Make Him Over II Group to participate.
