I’m a MONSTER!

I'm a Monster!

Morning runs are all about comfort..

The past few morning have been a bit chillier than the summer like temperatures I was experiencing a week ago.  But the drop in degrees haven’t deterred me from my morning strolls. I just have to dress a bit differently. I’ve said goodbye to the shorts and t-shirts and hello to the pullovers and long pants. My workout look today comes by way of the Men Only Hunt 10. My KossKoff Crew Sweater is the hunt prize at Fe Style.  I found the Dana Dot Pants at *AGATA*, because comfort is the key factor in workout wear. I’m keeping my neck warm in the Fluffy Scarf, the MOH10 gift from ::K::.

Updated Gifts…

One of my all time favorite group gifts are the Vasiforms sneakers at Vale Koer . They have updated their group gift to the V-3 Trainers. Just like the previous group gift. These shoes come with a texture HUD that makes the color combinations virtually endless. I plan on getting a lot of mileage out of these shoes!

And Now… A Moment of Zen

And Now... A Moment of Zen

 

Tai Chi with some Chai Tea…

Getting centered is now part of my daily avocation and nothing goes better together than Tai Chi and a cup of Chai Tea afterwards. I needed to be at total peace to put on a new avatar to model for you today (I get nervous I will never get my usual body back on correctly). I found the Robert Bento Mesh Fullbody Avatar at Altamura for FREE on the Men Only Hunt 10. I recommend you pick this up even if you make no other stops on this hunt. I kept the avatar in it’s unpackaged condition (no appliers) so you can see what you are getting. I was impressed with a couple of things, one being the facial movements of the Bento head, and the other being the alpha HUD.

Accessorizing the New Look…

I used some other items from the MOH10 to give “Robert” his own personal flair. Bad Hair Day provided the Irusu Hair as their hunt gift. Avi-Glam‘s gift is the Cold Day Eyes. To cover my “bits”, I put on the Brian Boxers, the gift that can be found at Alter. This gift includes a HUD that lets you select from five different colors. I accessorized with the Rage Nose Piercing, the hunt prize found at LouLou&Co & BeBop . And.I also put on the Knight Cross Necklace, found at etham.  Did I mention that all the gifts I just mentioned are FREE? The pose today is also a FREE gift on the MOH10. Grafica provided as a gift the Gwrido pose set.

May you find your inner peace today.

Finding the REALLY BIG ONE!

Finding the BIG ONE!

No rest for the weary…

My Sunday didn’t go as planned. I was hoping to enjoy the middle part of my three day weekend lounging in bed until an ungodly hour, then putting on a pot of chili and watching some football. But when she entered the bedroom all perky (note: Who is this person? She is never perky in the morning). I knew my plans were a bust. Her chore for me today… go find the perfect pumpkin. And not just any pumpkin, but a REEEALLY BIIIIG one (Her words, not mine). After stopping by many pumpkin farms, I think I found one that will please her (A challenge in itself). If I hurry, I can still catch the start of the game. I hope she took pity on me and started the chili.

Men Only (Not Really)…

Today’s look comes straight from the Men Only Hunt 10. The Hunt started over the weekend and everywhere I went there were hunters looking for the FREE gifts. My outfit is the FREE hunt gift at Wilson’s Designs. The Rust Pullover and Blue Jeans are the perfect fall casual look to find pumpkins (or mustaches). The Shirt comes fitted sizes ADAM, Aesthetic, Jake, Gianni, Slink, TMP and classic avatar XS-XL. The pants come in sizes XS-XL. The Jake Canvas Sneakers can be found at ILLI as the FREE hunt prize. These beautifully detailed sneakers come in sizes for the the following body types:   ADAM, Aesthetic, Jake, MeshProject, Signature, Slink and TMP. Don’t worry, ladies, there are also sizes in the gift to fit you too!

Oh My Gourd…

Today’s pose is the FREE MOH10 gift from Le Poppycock. The Oh My Gourd pose comes with the pose, the large pumpkin that you carry and a group of pumpkins for your background (not shown). The Men Only Hunt 10 runs until October 28th.

I hope this one is big enough. I don’t think my back could handle a bigger one!

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.

I remain

This month sees the men of Second Life getting some much needed love. The Men Only Hunt is in full swing and with forty six stops it’s proving to be a great hunt for filling out the wardrobe.  I’ve chosen this black sweater and shirt one piece combination from Fe Style today. The ‘Rom Sweater’ comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL and features two handy alpha layers. One for the sweater itself and one for the top, pants and shoes.   My stylish hat is also a hunt prize. This is the Jones hat from Flow. The hat is fully modifiable for a perfect fit. The new ink you see here is from Speakeasy. The ‘Conjuring’ Tattoo comes in both a fresh and a faded ink version on the system tattoo layer. The prize also includes appliers for The Mesh Project, Omega, SLink  Body and SLink hands.

Last but not least, my appropriately dramatic pose comes from the bar stool “Cold One” from !Bang.  The stool has two poses and has a 9 land impact. It is very nicely built and would look rather stylish in nearly anyone’s abode.

The Men Only Hunt runs until April 30th. Don’t miss it.

I remain most sincerely yours,

Gabriel St. James

Get Funky

Get Funky

The Men Only Hunt has proven lucrative. This morning I picked up these FREE Funky Jeans by AR2 Style, which is their contribution to the hunt. No, I’m not trying to insult the style… that’s the name of the Jeans. These excellent quality mesh jeans come in all the standard mesh sizes and the texture is spot on. They are definitely worth picking up.

I also discovered that several pose stores are giving gifts as part of the hunt. Dark Magic Poses is a new-to-me pose store, and there are not necessarily an abundance of quality men’s poses available on the grid. I was really pleased with their FREE hunt gift — this Justin Pose pack. I’m showing you Justin 02 to give you an idea. There are three top quality poses in the FREE gift if you hunt down the prim beer.

I also passed up my usual tattoo this morning in place of this one by Facade that caught my eye. It too is a FREE hunt gift as part of the Men Only Hunt and is called Befallen Stars. As part of this generous gift you will get a system layer tattoo as well as appliers for Omega, Slink, TMP, Adam, and Signature. I applied it easily to my Slink mesh body.

Happy Hunting!

Friday GuyDay: For Men Only

FINALLY – a day off! I’m actually supposed to be taking Serena out for her Rez Day, but I thought I’d spend a little time relaxing at the beach first. Before heading out, I picked up these cargo shorts and tank top, the Men Only Hunt 3 gift from 22769. This hunt runs until May 31st, and all items are free. And you know how hard it is to find good free stuff for men!

22769_moh_7f

Speaking of free, I’m wearing the new group gift eyes from IKON that Love showed you earlier today. Yes, guys can wear them too! All of my jewelry was also free; my earring and rings are gifts from GABRIEL (free to join), and my bracelet is a group gift from Chop Zuey (350L to join). My flip flops were not free, but are on sale for 30% off until May 5th at Slink. In fact, everything except hands and feet are on sale, so if you’ve been waiting to pick up a new pair of shoes, now’s the time!

Oh, one more thing: Katey Coppola of Glitterati Poses celebrated her birthday on May 1st, and is giving a gift to all of us! For a limited time, you can join the FREE Glitterati VIP group (not to be confused with the not-free, 500L, VIP group), click the gift board, and get 150L in store credit. If you happen to be a member of the 500L VIP group, or feel like joining, you can hit the other gift board and get 500L in store credit. So take your pick! But hurry – Katey said the gifts would only be out for “a few days,” whatever that means. And who doesn’t need a new pose or two? 😀

MOH: Feeling Frosty

Feeling Frosty

Frosty and I decided to take a break from skating to warm up. I tried to convince him that he should step back from the fire, but he wouldn’t listen. I hope he doesn’t drip all over my Ski Sweater and Black Jeans. This is the Men Only Hunt gift from Graffitiwear.

The wonderful winter skating rink is at Winter Scenes 2011 by Incendia. There are plenty of fun winter activities to enjoy. Pick up free Skates and Santa Hat by the skating pond. Bring friends for a snowball fight or just stroll the sim and enjoy the beauty.

MOH : A Captain’s Goal

Spearsong - Tattered Jeans and Muscle Shirt, artMEfashion- Steampatch Duster, Soul Distraction - Tan Hiking Boots

“Out here, people struggled to get by with the most basic technologies; a ship would bring you work, a gun would help you keep it. A captain’s goal was simple: find a crew, find a job, keep flying.”

That’s not the Serenity behind me, it’s all I got. I also have the clothes on my back that I found on the Men Only Hunt. Find the Tattered Jeans and Muscle Shirt at Spearsong. The Steampatch Duster is the hunt prize from artMEfashion and the Tan Hiking Boots is the hunt gift at Soul Distraction. Now I need to find a crew and keep flying.
