Step Right Up And Enjoy The Show.

awesome stunt show 1

As a young boy, I witnessed a man in a raggedy, sequined outfit jump over a pair of trailers on his dirt bike, much to the delight of the crowd. Years later, here I am on the shoulder of Route 23, promoting the debut of my own daredevil show. I chose to wear a group gift from TentatioN. It is very casual and sporty, but with the camouflage pattern on the cargo pants pockets and in the lower corner of the shirt, it also says, “I am a warrior.” Sometimes, it’s best to let your clothes speak for you (unless they are going to say “I’m a dork”, then there is no reason to give them a megaphone). This, however, says volumes in a positive, masculine manner.  The gift comes with a color change hud, providing four color choices for both the mesh shirt and the pants. TentatioN is not a free group, though. It will set you back 30L, but this outfit in four colors is worth it.

I grew up in Los Tres Dolores New Mexico , a town named for a mystical formation of three cacti. For my death-defying entry into the world of show business, I will jump over that local landmark in the greatest riding lawnmower jump in the history of mankind! At first glance a lawnmower it may not appear to be the best choice for soaring through the air, but isn’t a riding mower essentially a helicopter that has been flipped upside down? This very detailed (and shockingly fast) mower is the current FREE group gift from Knight Performance. This store along with the one which shares the building with them (Surplus Motors) are great sources for beautifully detailed vehicles in SL. Both stores are free groups and offer many Midnight Manias, group gifts and discounts. If you have any interest in vehicles on Second Life, you should seriously consider joining them.

If you are going to let your clothes do the speaking for you, this Rockabilly Hunt prize jacket from The Dark Fae positively screams, “Rebel.” Its cool stand-up collar and retro styling including a must see graphic on its’ back are perfect for people who don’t follow the rules, like me (even if it’s because I can’t be bothered to read them). The Rebel Soul Jacket sports versions with and without the t-shirt and comes in three sizes, plus an additional two sizes in fitmesh. Cool style is timeless, and this jacket is perfectly cool! This Rockabilly Hunt prize is not free, but at only 2L, it’s a bargain. These jeans are extraordinary as well, coming from a quickly expanding store called Illi. Currently on their Midnight Mania board, these Midnight Open Belt Jeans are nicely textured and look great, and a big surprise was the texture hud that came with them. Illi gives us 8 denim colors, 4 belt colors and 4 metal accent textures for the belt. That is excellent versatility for a free gift! It does carry a small logo, but it is easy to overlook, given the generosity of this Midnight Mania prize. Also worth noting are my mesh white leather sneakers, fresh from the Wayward Hunt. The prize, from the store United Colors, comes in both men’s and ladies’ sizes and with that touch of blue on them they look fantastic for a FREE hunt gift. I was truly impressed!

Well, I dressed for success and I did everything right but sometimes that just isn’t enough. Sometimes in life the ramp just isn’t high enough, or maybe the wind shifts, or maybe a lawn mower just isn’t meant to fly. A person could drive themselves crazy sitting back and reflecting over those kinds of things, but not me. I am on to my next great adventure and I hope you will be there with me.—–WHC Riler

The Lady and the Thief

Hello again, FabFolks.  I spent a very pleasant afternoon on the Hunt today and found two things I think you’ll like. I picked the Autism Awareness Hunt   because I have two godsons on the spectrum. So this Hunt is for them!

The Lady and the Thief

C&N Designs is, as y’all know, one of our FabFree Designers and these two Hunt prizes will show you why we’re so excited they are.  First up is the ‘Isabell’ dress in green. I love this gown. The color, the soft floral and the long sleeves almost like wings, all just lovely. You even get the matching necklace.

The Lady and the Thief

This is the men’s prize from C&N Designs, the ‘Thief’ part of our title. Again, C&N has given us a beautiful build as well as a good looking outfit. The boots, the bracers and the belt are all resizable to get that perfect fit.  Since the men’s prize was so nifty, I thought this would be a good time to introduce y’all to Gabriel, my MAlt.  Because sometimes… ya need to indulge the animus.

 

The Autism Awareness Hunt runs until April 30th and will only cost you…0L per prize!

A Splash Of Color You Don’t Want To Brush Off!

WHC FF RTPAINT 3

Little did I realize when I started on Second Life (watching Fab Free and jumping on any freebie I could get my hands on) that someday I would have the chance to contribute to this amazing resource. It gives me great pride to be joining Fab Free as a weekly contributor and I look forward to the great adventure ahead. Getting down to business, there is an excellent Midnight Mania prize out over at Ruca Tease. One great thing about this Mesh Men’s Spilled Paint Open Hoodie w/Shirt is that it comes with a texture change hud. This gives you the flexibility of seven great color options. Very casual and comfortable looking, it is definitely a Midnight Mania board worth tapping, you don’t even have to be in the group!  Do it today though, I hear it could be taken down as early as Friday! Also this week, I’m wearing the FREE GIFT from Poetic Colors. You’ll love these spotted eyes in the tropic color. The gift is very generous as it includes both mesh and system eyes, 3 sizes, and 3 brightness variations. They are quite unique looking, and for those of us who collect great eyes, they are not to be missed!  I want to thank Love, Pru, Julianna and all the other contributors to Fab Free for this opportunity to contribute to a blog I’ve admired for a very long time. I hope my time here will be as rewarding for all of you as it will be for me.—–WHC Riler

Hello, Sweetie

Once upon a time there was a Mad Man with a box….

Hello, Sweetie

If you’re a Doctor Who fan, like I am, you do not want to miss the “Who’s Who Hunt” from Madly Untamed Hunts! You only have until March 31st to find all thirty three prizes so let’s jump in. We have to start with the TARDIS. This is the TARDIS Closet from Fairy Angel Creations. The doors open and close to the familiar landing sounds. I’ve seen a lot of TARDIS  model on the grid and this is definitely one of the nicest!

And if you’re going to take a ride in the TARDIS you need to look spiffy. This is the female part of Beyond Persuasion Designs “Calling All Ponds” prize. The prize includes the boots, the tights and the tank. The male half of the prize includes jeans, shoes and a hoodie with ‘Come along, Pond’ printed on it. It’s so cute I almost modeled that instead of the girl’s gift!  But the hoodie would have covered up the necklace from Harambee Gwassi -Kenya Charity Shop’s ‘Time Lord’ jewelry set and I couldn’t have that. I just love the flowing Gallifrayen script!  The set comes with both necklace and earrings.

And of course I needed a Doctor so I dashed over to Hopscotch to play the “15 Jammy Dodgers and a Fez” Gacha  machine! I pulled a cute little Cyberman too. Hopscotch isn’t part of the Hunt but the Doctor plushie was too perfect not to include in this post.

The 1L Who’s Who Hunt runs until March 31st so don’t delay!

Have you had a good fantasy lately?

Hello again, my dears, I hope your weekend has been a good one. I enjoyed a full weekend of Hunts and I’m here to show off the fruits of my labor in the 0L  Medieval Fantasy Hunt. This is a large hunt and it will take you all over the grid with 52 designers participating. First up is Folklorica and their ‘Viking Runic Turf Hut.’

Have you had a good fantasy lately?

This is a beautifully built two level home with the second floor being a loft with ladder access. There are Norse runes around the door way and trophy weapons above along with a ‘dragon’ head carving on the uppermost posts. Now, y’all know I’m a gamer geek and one of my favorites is ‘Skyrim’ and this little house looks like it would be right at home there. (Shout out to my Tamriel brothers and sisters!)  The turf rook comes in two versions: a summer look and a snowy winter look.

Have you had a good fantasy lately?

Next is C&N Designs ‘Arunilod Blue’ dress. The prize from C&N also includes a men’s outfit in the same lovely blue. I love the velvet-look corset and the asimetrical over skirt. Perfect for  your next Fantasy role play.

Have you had a good fantasy lately?

One more quick note, the gorgeous hair I’m wearing today is ‘Jennaleigh’ from Damselfly and right now, it and a bunch more styles, are on sale for 30% to 70% off. If you love hair, I recommend checking out the “Lucky Charm” sale before it ends on March 17!

The Dark Fae loves shoes!

It’s hard to believe that the Cart sale has already  been going strong for two weeks because I keep finding nifty things to show off.  Today it’s a treasure trove of shoes from The Dark Fae! I have to give a special shout out to Dark Fae for stocking their Cart with not one but SIX pairs of boots for the gentlemen!

Fae_003

These are the ‘Hard Working Boots’ in distressed brown. Now, I know they’re men’s boots but I tossed them on anyway to show you. I know, I know… I’m a weirdo. :P

The ladies have a gorgeous pair of shoes on the Cart too. These are the ‘Stompy Shoes’ for SLink Mid feet in white. They also come in pink, green, gothic red and blue! But Corvi Ashdene, owner of The Dark Fae tells me that there is a “ZOMG Fat Pack” that comes with a HUD that will let you change the gem colors, strap colors AND shoe colors that you can purchase at the main store. You can grab the Land Mark for the main store right on the Cart.

Here’s your Taxi to the Shoe- tastic Dark Fae Cart!

Mr. Pink

Santino Male GG

Hello again Fab Free’rs, it’s Pru in the form of Diamos, again. I’ve been enjoying the ability to show you some of the great finds I come across for all our male readers out there. Originally I had intended to show you this FREE Group Gift for the guys from Santino Design along with the female gift I showed here, but I was having some technical issues so I split the gifts up and now here we are!

I think it shows confidence and character when guys are willing to wear bright colors that might sometimes have been considered “feminine” colors. This mesh hoodie is a great example of some casual menswear in a bright fun color. I think it looks great. The Santino Design Group is FREE to join, and the hoodie is a current FREE gift for all group members.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair – Action Mesh Hair Joe

Skin – the body co. Hunter II

Hoodie – SANTINO DESIGN Long Sleeve Hooded T-Shirt ‘WESLEY’ PURPLE – FREE Group Gift/Group is FREE to Join
