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!

His & Hers at Ruby’s

With the Hunt for Your Inner Slut Hunt ending May 15th, you still have a little over two weeks to pick up some of the really amazing prizes. Loki and I stopped by House of Ruby and picked up some… wardrobe essentials today.

His and Hers at Rubys 1

If you hunt down that iconic hunt symbol, this sensual pink body suit is yours FREE as part of the hunt gift at House of Ruby. It comes in both Omega and Slink appliers. It is sheer enough that to share it with you, I had to wear a hair that would cover bits😉 , but it is a beautiful body suit for any lady to add to her virtual closet.

His & Hers at Ruby's

For the guys, House of Ruby is offering these cheeky lowered trunks with a “bunny” print. These too are FREE as part of the Hunt for Your Inner Slut Hunt. Like the women’s gift, they come in Omega and Slink appliers… but this also has system layers, sure to fit any fella’s clothing needs.

The Cost of Fame

The Cost of Fame

The cost of fame… isn’t as high as you would think. At least this morning. You can pick up this pretty amazing one-piece mesh suit (modifiable shoes included) for FREE as part of the Fame & Fortune Hunt if you stop by the Paradox main-store and hunt for the coin. Currently, though this is a 1L hunt, at the time of the publication of this post, the hunt gift was set to 0L. So you can pick up the gift for FREE for now.

Note: Quick update… this gift is now been correctly priced at the 1L price for this hunt.

The Fame and Fortune Hunt runs until May 15, so you have a couple of weeks to pick up this outstanding gift.

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.

Hats Off

Hats Off

I did some more checking on the Men Only Hunt that ends April 30th. It’s not too late for us men to get in on the goods. I found several item’s that are not to be missed.

You’ll want to stop by Ducknipple and pick up this FREE red hoodie. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well standard fitmesh sizes as well. It has a terrific texture and the fit is of excellent quality. I really liked the hoodie style.

I also picked up these cargo pants from High Impact Actionwear. My hoodie covers up the belt buckle and top part of the pants which is really unique, but I wanted to be able to show you both of these quality items. These FREE pants have well detailed pockets and a plaid inset at the waist that is a great feature. Be sure to pick them up before the hunt ends.

I also really love this FREE pose by Come Soon Poses that is part of the MOH7 Hunt. You get the pose as well as the hat (a prop) to add to it.

Hats Off 2

Details make the man! And I found a couple of details that you won’t want to pass up. These are good for both ‘modern’ avis and would also be great for roleplayers as well.

My Hipster Eye Scar is the FREE Men Only Hunt gift from !BaaaH and comes in several skin tones so you can get just the right shade (from light to dark) to match your facial skin coloring. It would be excellent for any type of roleplay or just to add to that macho feel.

I also added on this really terrific Warrior Stubble beard from Nivaro. It comes in “hard” and “soft” versions. I’m showing you the hard version in the pictures above. This too is a FREE Men Only Hunt gift.

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!

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.
