No Time

No Time

I received very sad news today, FabFree. The Stay at Home Club is closing it’s doors as of September 25. I will be very sorry to see them go. I certainly got used to picking up all the great free gifts. But… all good things come to an end, I suppose.

No Time

I am glad I had time to pick up these great cargo pants from FurtaCor. These are the ‘Owen’ pants and while the Club is still open, you can get them for free. The pants come with a HUD to choose one of fifteen colors and patterns. As with everything I’ve seen from FurtaCor, these are a great build right down to the details. I would suggest, however, that you don’t wait around to grab these before the Stay at Home Club is just a fond memory.

Sizes Included

  • Aesthetic
  • Altamura
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink

One quick note, you may see that there is no Belleza Jake size. I have discovered that Altamura fits Jake rather well. Good to know.

Julian

Julian

No, I’m not changing my name. I’m rather pleased with the one I have… well, actually I have three names. But that’s a story for another time. The Julian I am referring to is the name of the smashing new shirt I’m wearing today.

Details

As I said, this is ‘Julian’ from Finer Threads and you can add it to your closet for free. Yes, free. This is the free gift from Finer Threads at Uber. Ms. Prudence has already shown some of the free gift at Uber and Julianna came back from the event staggering under the weight of all the gifts she had collected. I had little hope for a mens gift, yet happily, here we are and it’s a very fine gift indeed.  If the charcoal color I chose isn’t your taste, Julian comes with a HUD for eight colors and as many other embroidery details.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature – Gianni

Uber runs until September 22. For easy shopping, this is the Cam Shopping LM

Hello and Happy Weekend, FabFree. A new to me designer has popped up on my radar for good quality men’s wear today. I was alerted by my group chat for Third Life to a new gift. I know Juli has told you all about the Third Life Group and while there’s a majority of gifts for the girls, we guys have a gift or two as well. You just have to join the group for a small onetime fee of 10L and you’ll have access to loads of designers and those free gifts.

Tanked

Modern Charm is a new to me designer and I’m very pleased  to have discovered them. There is a group with multiple gifts and a large store. The items are well built and have quality textures. I have a feeling I will be returning to Modern Charm often.  This top is the Paolo Tank and you can pick it up for free with your Third Life Group tag. The tank comes with a HUD with five colors and four graphics you can mix.

Sizes Included

  • Adin
  • Belleza Jake
  • Fitmesh Classic

Oh and one last thing…. I’m Batman.

Hey FabFree! Can you believe we are rolling so fast towards the end of July? I’ve still got a list of things that need to be done before that! I’ve got Hunts and Fairs and events all stacking up!  So lets get at least one of those going now.

Celtic Love

I love the Celtic history and language and countries. Scotland is my family’s ancestral home both on the Grid and in the Real world. So I had to take part in the Celtic Celebration Hunt.  And since I can’t resist a man in a kilt, I convinced Gabriel to come along.

These are the men’s and women’s gifts from Mystrie for the Hunt : the Aina dress and the Aiden Kilt.  The dress comes as one easy piece and is a lovely build. If you can’t see in the picture, there is Celtic knotwork all down the skirt and the texture in the bodice is so detailed. This will be a staple in my RP closet.

The Aiden Kilt comes in three pieces – the shoes and socks, the kilt and the vest. Gabriel did add the undershirt from his own closet. Again, the details are spot on. The textures are smooth and well made.

The Celtic Celebration Hunt runs until July 29th so don’t wait around to get your Hunt on!

Take a Little Trip

Take a little trip
Take a little trip, take a little trip
Take a little trip and see
Take a little trip, take a little trip
Take a little trip with me

~ Low Rider

It’s way too hot in Texas to stick around. Today, the temp on the car’s dashboard said it was 108 degrees! That’s Way. Too. Hot. Some I had to get away.Take a little trip… as it were.  Luckily, it’s always nice on the Grid. I even found a gorgeous SIM that’s based on the Highlands of Scotland… where even in the Summer… it’s nice and cool.

Take a little trip

I was also pleased to find a great free gift from V8 that is perfect for wandering the Highlands. This is the Roger Urban outfit and it’s free with your Third Life Group tag. To join the Thrid Life Group just click the poster and pay a small one time 10L and there you go. Now, when I say outfit… that’s the whole outfit. You get the sweater plus scarf, the trousers, the fedora and the sneakers. (There’s also a pair of sunglasses that I forgot to put on…) The mesh is a good solid build. I had no clipping issues and it moved well. The colors would be good for Fall or Winter. I have no idea how long this special will last so don’t delay.

No more yielding than a dream

All a Dream

If we shadows have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended:
That you have but slumbered here,
While these visions did appear;
And this weak and idle theme,
No more yielding but a dream,
Gentles, do not reprehend.
If you pardon, we will mend.

 

It was all a dream upon Midsummer’s Night

The Midsummer Night’s Dream Hunt, that is. First my new gown. I am becoming a huge fan of Ari – Pari. Honestly, when I saw this designer was doing the Hunt I may have actually squeaked with a happy. For just 3L and a little hunting you get the beautiful gown with a HUD for eight colors of fabric and six metals for the belt. It’s just gorgeous.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

My Oberon

Gabriel is my Oberon in the “Oberon Set” from Secrets of Gaia. This is also part of the Midsummer Night’s Dream hunt for only 3L. The set also included two sets of horns (Not shown)

Greetings FabFree.  Much like Juli, I have been sucked into the fervor surrounding the Second Life 17th Birthday. while there are considerably far few items for men, I have found at least one that is a must have for all the RPers. At least the bleak future/cyberpunks.

Future Perfect

This is the ‘Cyber Set’ from Zed for Men and it’s at the SL17B as your free gift. The set includes the vest, two cyber arms ( one left, one right) and a spine attachment. The pieces are all separate so you can wear all or just a piece or two. Any Cyber RP ladies could easily pick this set up simply for the arms and the spine. The set comes in the red I’m wearing as well as blue, cyan, orange, green and black. One note – I accessorized this vest with an applier long sleeved shirt and a visor from my closet, these do not come with the Cyber Set.

  • Aesthetic

Tie Dye

Tie Dye

Hello FabFree. No you aren’t hallucinating… we have two men’s wear posts… in a row! Between all the Access gifts Blue showed you and the huge All the Stuff Hunt, it’s a good day to be a guy on the Grid.

Tie Dye for

The casual shirt I’m sporting is from ZFG for Him. It may seem like a simple gift but the build is really solid. The details are perfect even zoomed in. You also get a HUD to pick one of six tie dye colors and patterns. Just a little hunting and it’s yours.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Legacy
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink

Mix and Match

My next stop on the All the Stuff Hunt was Mishmash Fusion. This is one designer that always provides good “stuff” and this time is no different. Mishmash Fusion has actually put out a complete set of jeans and a tee shirt for us. I picked the jeans to show for two reasons… one, I really like the tie dye shirt and two… anyone can do jeans. Right? Welll, no. Jeans are one of those things you don’t notice unless it’s bad. These jeans from Mishmash Fusion are some of the best on the Grid. The color is right and the details are solid. These are absolutely staying in my closet.

Hide Out

Hide out

Having spent much of my weekend ‘hunting’ down the gifts for the All the Stuff Hunt on the men’s path, I think some camouflage may be in order. And it does make for a very unique outfit the way Brocade Tiger is using it. This is not just another pair of shorts or snapback.

Hiding Out

Brocade Tiger has given us this complete outfit for the All the Stuff Hunt, “Hidden in Plain Sight”. The outfit consists of a pair of trousers and two tanks – one regular and one with long ripped scratches across the chest. The tanks can be worn separately or together. I love it when designers give the men something more fashion forward and this suits the bill.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Fitmesh
  • Legacy

Sun down, ya better take care

Sun down, ya better take care...

Good evening, FabFree. I know you have heard me say it before… finding great designers for men’s wear who also do hunts or Group Gifts and such is, well, difficult at time. It can be extremely frustrating. However, my stress is much lessened when wonderful Hunts such as the All the Stuff Hunt take place. Why you ask… because there are no less than 62 great designers offering splendid prizes for the Men’s Stuff part of the Hunt. So get your Hunting gear on and let’s Hunt!

Beach Time

The Men’s Stuff group has the very first prize on our list both here in the Blog and in the Hunt. And we start off in the Men’s Stuff Plaza with prize #00.  Brocade Tiger has provided the official group pirize this year with the “Dalmatian Dashiki” shirt. The relaxed style is perfect for hanging out on the beach watching the sun go down.

Sizes Included

  • Aesthetic
  • Class mesh – XS-XL
  • David
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink
  • TMP

The Men’s Stuff part of the All the Stuff Hunt provided my jeans as well. From UnderDog, a new to me designer, the dramatically named ‘Bad Boy’ jeans come in both the rolled up version and a straight cuff version. You are getting the entire Fatpack for these jeans, both versions and in three colors. Plus, there is a plethora of other free gifts in the UnderDog prize box.

Sizes Included

  • Classic Mesh – XS – XL
