Two to Tango

Two to Tango

Prudence tipped me off on a sweet set of hunt gifts at Sparrow by Design… that had Loki and I tangoing off that direction!

I scored a sublime dress with this beautiful floral print in all the standard mesh sizes. It comes in a few layered pieces, so you can leave some of the layers off, if you want a slimmer fit, but I decided I loved the flounce! For only 1L and a little bit of hunting for the tulip at the shop, this dress suited my fancy just fine!

Loki picked up this sweater and shirt with the floral tie… and the tie just happens to match my dress. Again, his item was just 1L. Both of these are at Sparrow by Design and are the store’s lovely contribution to the Flowerage Hunt which runs through the end of May.

We are off for our tango! Happy hunting!

Sing it Again

Sing it Again

His and Hers gifts are always pretty special when you run across them…. and both Wicca’s Wardrobe and Mina Hair are creators which are great about offering regular group gifts that cater to both male and female avatars.

Both stores currently have out beautiful gifts for men and women. Above you will see the Liam and Jeanne FREE group gift jackets from Wicca’s Wardrobe. The group is 50L to join, and this gives you instant access not only to current group gifts, but also to numerous past lady’s and men’s group gifts as well. These jackets come in all the standard mesh sizes.

Mina Hair also has a VIP group. The fee for it is 200, but if you join, you will see regular monthly gifts. The gift has, in the past, always included a male and female version, just as it does this month. The FREE Stella and Gael hairs above come in an exclusive Dip Dye version this month with a color change hud, but in the past naturals or fatpacks have also been offered, making this a group well worth joining for the gifts as well!

With the Men Only Hunt ending April 30th, there is just a little less than a week for us fellas to pick up the prim beers… and the FREE prizes. With that in mind, I wanted to show off this tongue-in-cheek T-shirt from Sharp by [ZD]. Zombies are popular anyway… from television shows to video games. So this well made shirt is a fun wardrobe addition. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as several fitmesh sizes and is a FREE Men Only Hunt gift that you can pick up at the Sharp by [ZD] main-store before the hunt ends.

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.

Get Funky 2

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!

Scene Bomber

Scene Bomber

Pru pointed me toward a not-to-be-missed bomber jacket which had me headed toward American Bazaar this morning. This FREE jacket only cost me a little hunting time (I had to find the beer). Yes really. Just hunt down the little prim beer glass and this classic black leather bomber jacket in all the standard mesh sizes is yours FREE. American Bazaar is participating in the Men Only Hunt and this is their contribution.

I was then on to more serious tasks… like checking out the scene at the Jack the Ripper Recreation Sim. Don’t worry… it’s moderate! So PG-13. But probably still not for the faint of heart.

I’m off to investigate the scene of the crimes…

Casablanca Style

Casablanca Style

The Fame and Fortune Hunt… doesn’t cost a fortune. In fact, it’s a 1L hunt. And my 1L snagged me this pretty snazzy suit which I then used to tour the remake of Casablanca here in Second Life. The suit is pretty perfect for it.

This Garonga Men’s Suit created by Sparrow by Design comes in all the standard mesh sizes and is of an excellent cut. What really impressed me though was the textures. The one piece suit has a sheen on the pants that shimmers and changes in the light as your avatar moves. I’ve never actually seen anything quite like it on another men’s suit. All in all for 1L, this is not only flashy… it qualifies as old style Casablanca classy. It’s certainly not a modern suit, but it is stylish and well worth hunting down.

Medieval Camp Out

When was the last time you went camping? Nooooo… I don’t mean in the great outdoors! I mean sitting your avatar in one of those chairs that gives you a great gift! If you haven’t done it in a while, the outfit below from C&N is a good reason to do so. You can always sit your avatar in the chair while you are away having dinner or if you need to answer some pesky emails! Either way, this prize is well worth the goods if you are a serious medieval or gorean roleplayer.

Medieval Camp Out

The Medieval Greatjon Outfit above is just one of the offered 90 minute camping chair prizes at C&N Designs. Currently there are 2 camping chair prizes for men, 2 lucky letter chair prizes, and 1 lucky letter board prize. You’ll need to be in the group to get access to these FREE gifts. This will set you back a one-time fee of 25L, but all the offered gifts are excellent, and the lucky letter board/chairs randomly switch out, for a variety of outfits.

I was really pleased at the end of my 90-minute camp out when my Greatjon Outfit was delivered. It comes fully outfitted (yes pun intended) with all the goods. You get the system clothing layers as well as appliers for Omega and the Mesh project. It also comes with the mesh gloves, boots, and the belt with the attached dagger. It’s the full kit and caboodle… FREE! Well free except for your time. But I was busy having dinner anyway!

Medieval Camp Out 2

When I got back to my keyboard and discovered that I was on the last leg of my “camping trip”, I was lucky enough to see that my letter had come up on the lucky letter board… and so I also picked up one of the FREE random prizes on the lucky letter board from C&N. I wanted to show you the great quality of these roleplay outfits as well. This is the Medieval Viking Outfit in Red. It too is the full outfit with bracers and boots included. It is system layers only (no appliers for mesh bodies), but still of outstanding quality for roleplay and well worth the 25L group join fee for a chance at any of these lucky letter chairs or boards.

The other camping chair had a gift well worth camping for as well, but dinner was done and I had things to do. I may pick that one up on another evening.

So until next time… roleplay on!

Garden Swank

Garden Swank

I managed to beat Astrid to the Swank Event! And scored a great FREE men’s gift in the process. This really amazing Baka Jacket for men (it comes in all the standard mesh sizes) by Bakaboo is a FREE gift (no group required) at the current round of Swank. Several designers are giving gifts at their booths for both guys and gals, so this event is well worth visiting.

I’m sure Astrid will want to head there later now that I’ve broken the ice…

Don’t be shy… go get your Swank on!

Blue Sweater Morning

Blue Sweater Morning

April mornings are still chilly here in my part of the world… so sweaters and blankets are a must. Thankfully, a new-to-me store that I found saved the day… errr morning… with a beautiful his and hers FREE gift!

Currently, if you stop by the ::K:: main-store, you can join the group FREE and pick up the FREE group gift. Inside the box you will find these beautiful blue his and hers matching sweaters. The sweaters come in two styles… one with a white inner blouse and one without. There is only one size inside and they seem to be fitted mesh. There is another group gift out for members as well, a pair of very nice red men’s trousers (not shown in this post).

I’m looking forward to warmer spring weather, but for now, I’m content to curl up with a warm sweater and good company… even if that company is my own alt-er ego😉. Enjoy your day!

Be Mine… Even In April

Be Mine... Even In April

When you need something to unwind in at the end of the day, House of Ruby has the perfect duo — matching guy’s briefs and lady’s lingerie. This set is yours FREE as a subscribo gift if you stop by the main-store and click the subscriber. In the box you’ll find a system layer of men’s briefs as well as men’s appliers for slink men’s mesh bodies and an omega applier as well. For ladies you’ll find Slink and Omega appliers for mesh bodies (there are no system layers for ladies).

Loki stopped by Legal Insanity and picked up the February group gift which is FREE and still out. It is this dual set of men’s and lady’s “Be Mine” necklaces. The gift includes both a copy/no transfer version and a no copy/transfer version of the men’s and lady’s style each. That means that rather you are a guy or a gal, if you pick up the gift, you’ll have one for yourself and one to give as a gift to someone else! Better yet, the 99L group gift fee is made well worth your Linden… there is an entire wall filled with lady’s and men’s past gifts, varying from clothing in different seasons to jewelry, all still available for just 1L each with your Legal Insanity group tag!
