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

Springing Into May, All Hopped Up On Freebies!

whc kauna jacket 1

May has started out wonderfully for me, and when you get a glance at this freebie, your May will become as great as mine. FaMESHed is a monthly event on SL, and this month was actually the first time I ever attended. Being a guy, shopping events have not been a major focus of mine (until now). I am kicking myself for that though since I laid eyes on this fantastic FREE leather overcoat from Kauna! The Kauna-XIV Leather Overcoat is supplied in both a black and a brown version and is finely textured. In fact, click on the pictures in this post and you can almost feel the leather with your fingertips. Prepare to fall in some serious love with this overcoat. It is given away FREE at FaMESHed to celebrate the third anniversary of the event and to promote Kauna’s excellent line of XIV suits and separates. If you have the money, you might well be compelled to do what I did and splurge on some matching components, like the XIV T-Shirt Pack: Plain & Striped and the XIV Shirt: Coffee pictured above. They are made to fit beautifully with the overcoat and are a very nice luxury if you have the coin.

whc kauna jacket 2

You might ask, “What if you have nothing to spend on Second Life’s great luxuries at the moment?” Well, if that’s the case, then this overcoat is still a must pick up. In addition to the components made to fit especially for this jacket, you can use other items you could already have in your inventory. Being a mesh overcoat, it might be somewhat tricky to find pieces to wear under it. With this stylish garment, I would heartily recommend system (layers) T-shirts, and (if you can find some) system dress shirts with sculpted collars. Both will look great with it. Even if you have to fiddle with the sculpted collars to find one that works well, you are going to look fantastic.

In the picture above, you can see I paired The Kauna-XIV Leather Overcoat with a FREE Group Gift from Gizza; a pink and black shirt that was offered a while back and is still available. I think it looks very nice in this outfit and is a great example of a freebie that works well. Gizza is a great place to pick up a bunch of Free Gifts since they keep their previous FREE Group Gifts out for an extended period. It would be an excellent first stop in a search for items to wear with this stylish overcoat.

Last, but far from least, I am wearing a very special set of eyes. The Mayfly – Luminous – Mesh Eyes in London Fog are a FREE Gift from one of the best eye creators in Second Life. They look fantastic and offer a wide variety of options controlled by a surprisingly robust hud, which allows variations in size, reflections, and shadowing (among other options). I love the way they look! While you are in eye collecting mode – which sounds super creepy now that I say it out loud – keep in mind that Mayfly also has a FREE Gift over at Fab Free Headquarters! The recently updated Mayfly – Deep Sky Eyes in Medium Onyx are gorgeous grey eyes. If you haven’t come by to pick them up yet, rest assured they are completely worth the trip. With all the great freebies and gifts this week, you’ll spring into May in style! From my little pixel heart to all of you, have fun and see you on the grid. —–WHC Riler

Hazy Shade of Winter

Hello my dears, I hope you’re staying warm and cozy if it’s snowy where you are like it is here. But just because it’s cold and blustery doesn’t mean you can’t show off some style! Ur.Favorite.One or U.F.O has put out a lovely group gift for us: the Bang Bang Dress. This cozy knit dress comes in two colors a soft beige and this winter white. While I was at U.F.O I played a few of their in-store gachas and ended up with these adorable flats, the Toe Point Flat Shoe in

UFO_001

After I perused U.F.O’s cute shop, I headed over to Izzie’s to pick up these ‘Heart Tattoo’ tights. The tights are Izzy’s free-for-everyone gift celebrating the store’s anniversary. The tights come with ten colors of hearts to match a lot of outfits. And I topped everything off with my scarf from Mr. Poet . I do so love it when an ‘outfit’ comes together!

Speaking of a look coming together perfectly… Just as I was heading out to take the pictures for this post, Mayfly set out their new group gift: these Liquid Light eyes in Stormy Teal.  They come in system eyes with 4 levels of white and a complete set of mesh eyes as well. Aren’t they lovely!

Part Of Your World

American Bazaar are continuing their 4th birthday celebrations and more great free items have appeared on the gift tables outside the store from some very generous designers who are helping with the festivities! I have already shown some of the gifts in this post here so be sure to check that out too!

There are lots of gifts that come with applier HUDS so if you wear breast enhancements then you will find some great additions to your wardrobe! Of course if you don’t wear them then all the items are workable for you too! The Dat Titteh top by Hollipocket is one of those that looks just as cute on mesh enhancements as without though it comes with applier support for Lola Tango and Lush. I kind of like the contrast of the bright blue with my Ariel Red hair! My shoes are the Singapore Cream shoes for SLink High Feet by Essenz. These are amazing shoes to have in your collection as they will go with pretty much anything so be sure to pick these up!

Untitled

The Lace Corset by Biddy is another great top that comes with applier support for Lola’s, Phat Azz and Banned. I think it goes really well with the Fitted Mesh Skinny Pants that are by American Bazaar. The pants arent part of the celebration gifts but I bought them so I could show the tops to you. They are very reasonably priced and are definately going to be ones I wear very often!

Untitled

I am a sucker for a cute pastel dress and I just adore the Azura Dress (Coral) by LadyLuck! The Dulce Beret by Ariskea is the perfect little addition to wear with the dress and looks so adorable!

Untitled

My hair and skin in this picture are two great items available at the new round of The Arcade Gacha! The Skye II SKin by Glam Affair is so pretty with such expressive eyes. The tintable eyebrows that I am wearing are also included! I am completely in love with the gorgeous Ocean hair by Olive! Their gacha contains some amazing colourways with the option of winning them in this Ocean style or another style called Belle.. hmmm.. I wonder who that could be modelled after?

Untitled

My nails are the gorgeous Princess Glitter Nails by Free Bird and are their prize in the Enhance My Avatar Hunt. The prize costs L$5 to purchase! Pink glittery nails make Tiana very happy!

Zombies make lovely music to dance to!

If you all can remember, I have ended up in a few spots with zombies, with my first zombie shoot taking place in Dusty Heights (HERE is the link to that post). Would you believe, there is an absolutely gorgeous ballroom, right smack dab in the middle of that place? So of course, when I saw the kinds of gifts Shamic and I were collecting from The Silver Platter Hunt, quite a few formal wear outfits for him and her, well…I thought what better way to initiate Shamic into FabFree blog posts, than to drag him there. We danced to the music of zombie groans and doors being rattled, it was awesome!

ballroom1

Our whole foray into the Silver Platter Hunt, which prompted me to head to a ballroom, started with the lovely Pru sending me a link to the hunt’s blog gift preview page, telling me that there was a nice male skin available at Style by Kira. She was right, of course, and lucky for me, there was a really lovely female skin available for the hunt as well. I am wearing the Style by Kira – Janelle Skin SPH, and Shamic has on the Style by Kira – Anton Skin SPH. Both of these skins will cost you a whole L$1 each. Or, and this is one of the neat features of this hunt, if you do not want to take the time to root out the hunt gifts, all you need to do is find the hunt sign at the store, and the hunt gifts are available there for you without having to search, the catch, these one’s are L$25. So..there are 2 sets of the same gifts, the L$25 ones, are right beside the hunt sign, and the L$1 ones, are hidden somewhere in the store, and will take a little time to find, the choice is up to you. Either way, these skins are well worth the extra time or extra money.

ballroom3

Our formal wear is from Wicked Sin Creations, and they compliment each other so nicely.  I have on the ^WSC^ Opulent *Red/Black* {Mesh} Gown, and Shamic is wearing the ^WSC^ Tuxedo *Red Waist Band* {Mesh}. Both outfits are mesh, with the standard sizes available. Like the skin gifts, you can choose to search for the hunt gift (both male and female gifts are in one object) and only pay L$1, or go to the hunt sign and pay L$25. While there are hints on the hunt’s blog site, the hint for this item is wrong, so I will give you my own hint “Hey Sweet Sugar, Be Mine!”. I just love the matching red colour of my dress and Shamic’s cumberbund, and we look so elegant together :)

ballroom2

The Silver Platter Hunt runs until September 15th, and with a large majority of the stores having either a unisex gift, or both a male and female gift, it’s a great hunt to do together with your honey, or just your male alt…like me :P LOL. I better not let Shamic hear me call him just my male alt, I might hurt his feelings.

OK lovelies, that is it for me, but you all know that I will be back, maybe even show a few other gifts from this hunt. Until then though…TTFN!
