Shiny Shabby Surely!

whc rispetto 1_001

whc rispetto 2_002

Hello everyone! It is I, your intrepid male freebie/cheapie hunter with a quick post for you. February will be over soon and will bring to a close two fabulous hunts: Menstuff and Jack Or Jill. If you have been putting it off, now is the time to start hunting! The amount of quality men’s hunt prizes available at the moment is impressive, and all yours for a little bit of effort! Even more time sensitive, though, is a pair of freebies that are available right now and will not be out very much longer.

Shiny Shabby is celebrating it’s anniversary on Second Life by throwing a big sales event featuring an unbelievable number of freebies. The Hoorenbeek stall at Shiny Shabby is offering as its free anniversary gift the Mesh Military Boots in Burgundy. As with all Hoorenbeek products, the texturing is amazing and the overall quality is excellent. I never pass up an opportunity to pick up free Hoorenbeek and neither should you, especially since this gift comes with both male and female versions in the box. The boots come in regular and short variations with the eyelets and laces texture changable via hud, and if that isn’t generous enough they also include the mesh jeans i am wearing and the mesh belt in two variants! While over at Shiny Shabby also check out what Amacci has put out as a free gift. The Zenith Eyes in Mocha are a striking set of Mesh eyes adjustable via hud. Additionally included are versions for those who prefer using legacy eyes. As you can see by the many Shiny Shabby items featured on Fab Free this week, it is an event not to be missed. Now you have two more excellent reasons to head on over there!

I started this post mentioning two great men’s hunts that are winding up this month. Rispetto Designsfree Jack Or Jill Hunt gift is the Devin MESH Jacket & Hoodie in Army. As you can see from my lead picture it is a very casual looking garment. Appearing to be made up of multiple layers, this one piece of integrated mesh is beautifully textured to look well-worn and comfortable. Coming in five sizes, two of which are fitmesh, this is a free hunt gift definitely worth getting your hands on. Also on the Jack Or Jill Hunt is the free hunt gift from 7 Deadly S{K}ins. The River in Taupe skin is a very handsome skin. Even though I usually like to show off skins by getting close to naked, this time I decided to spare all of you the gratuitous near nudity and just tell you it’s a fine example of the kind of quality skins 7 Deadly S{K}ins is known for producing. When you are picking up these two hunt gifts look for the Menstuff Hunt prizes as well since both stores are also participating in that also.

That is all I have for you at the moment, but rest assured I will try to tempt you into going hunting at least once more before this month is over. Until next time my friends, take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Sunday Driver!

whc illi car 6_001

whc illi car 3_001

Hello everyone and happy Sunday to all of you! The Menstuff Hunt hunt is still on and I have gotten a huge amount of stuff from it that is blog worthy. Much of it I have not even posted yet! So, I strongly urge you to roll up your sleeves and take a shot at hunting on Second Life. It can be a highly rewarding pastime.

Angel DELUXE is offering the smart-looking outfit above as their free prize on the Menstuff Hunt. The prize is rather comprehensive, so this is a breakdown of what Angel DELUXE is giving you for free. The Mesh Menstuff Jacket & Shirt is a one piece combo featuring the jacket, shirt and tie! The colors are surprising to me and look fantastic together. This is a highly handsome piece of mesh and is provided in five sizes. The Menstuff Jeans – Bootcut come with it and are blessed with excellent texture and a beautiful deep blue color in addition to the fact that being bootcut will make it easier to wear them over much of the footwear in your wardrobe. That makes them an excellent addition to your quickly-expanding inventory. Separate from the jeans is the Menstuff Belt. It is one of the best-looking men’s belts I have ever seen on SL: nicely textured brown leather with a metal loop and buckle which are perfectly proportionate. Sadly, it is not shown in the above pictures. The jeans and belt both come in two fitmesh sizes and three mesh ones, so fitting will not be an issue. One last item is in this gift, a handsome pair of military boots. Simple, yet good looking, they make an excellent bonus for an already unskippable stop on this year’s Menstuff Hunt.

One of my favorite places to get men’s shoes on Second Life is Illi. When I am not modeling something for the blog, many of the shoes I wear come from their store. When I saw that Illi was participating in the Menstuff Hunt, I knew I was going to pick up something I would enjoy greatly. The Stanley Sneakers in Blue are a cool-looking men’s sneaker to be sure, but it is what is in the box that impresses me most. Illi has included in this free gift: versions for classic avatars, Aesthetic avatars and Slink Feet! I am wearing the Slink Version in this picture, a rare pleasure for me to be able to model Slink shoes since for men they tend to be costly. So, not only are they a great sneaker, this is a chance to pick up shoes that might be handy should you ever move up to Mesh feet or a Mesh avatar. For that reason alone, this is a must pick up! Thank you very much Alphonse for another great item!

Finally, in the pic above I am showing off a Calavera SS Stock car from Zenit Designs. This free Menstuff Hunt prize is different from most that I show off in that it is a toy that you can play around with. I may be clothes obsessed (among other things) but there is more to Second Life than just what to wear. Taking a car out for a spin can be great fun! The Calavera SS Stock has classic muscle car styling and drives via a hud. One thing is for sure: the fun you will get out of it could likely make this a wonderful find for you!

whc winter camo scarf 2_001

Once I took the pictures of the car, I realized they did not show off my hair well. These things happen when you wear black hair in front of a dark brick wall! Although I have previously shown off the Damselfly Menstuff Hunt Gift here, The Hitch Non-Rigged Mesh Hair certainly could use added attention. It comes in 20 textures select-able via easy to use hud, and hopefully showing it in a lighter tint might garner it the attention such a nice 1L hunt gift deserves.

EccentriciXi‘s free gift for the Menstuff Hunt should help keep us warm until the last of the SL snow has melted. The Stuff Hunt Sweater&Scarf and Chinos is a two piece outfit with a camouflage theme. The Sweater&Scarf is one piece of Mesh, the sweater being a solid dark green with a nice cozy texture and the scarf having a camo texture. Since the sweater does not carry the camouflage texture, its look is well-balanced. I like how the sweater does not carry the camouflage texture, if it had that and I went walking in the woods no one could ever find me. The Mesh chinos bear a dark camo texture that looks realistic, a garment that is valuable to own in a regular wardrobe if you are a fan of that look. Both pieces come in five sizes each for a trouble-free fit, and make up a wonderful free Menstuff gift.

That’s it for me for now, but I will be in touch soon. I still have tons more to show you from Menstuff as well as the Jack or Jill Hunt. Now is an excellent time to be a male freebie/cheapie hunter on SL, I hope you can take advantage of it! Til next time, have fun and I will see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Free Accessories Day Continues!

whc accessories2_001

Free Accessories Day is underway and I wanted to put in another quick post to show off some more cool items. Many thanks are in order for Pru, who pointed me in the direction of a fantastic jewelry store called Tantalum and their exceptional Jack Or Jill Hunt prize.

The Xue Necklaces from Tantalum comprise a set of two distinct, unisex necklaces offered as a single free Jack Or Jill Hunt gift. They look awesome! The shorter necklace has a small silver skull on it while the longer one has a crystal pendant. Each necklace comes with color change scripting included with its resizer that enables you to choose between 7 metal textures for the chains and 19 different textures for the crystal. The hunt object for The Jack Or Jill Hunt looks like a small black hockey puck. It was not the easiest find, but it was worth every second I spent looking for it!

The super-detailed unisex leather cuff I am wearing is also from Tantalum. The Loco Bracelet is a free group gift and is superbly made. It comes in left-hand and right-hand versions and truly looks like it’s crafted out of leather and pewter! There is no chance this is not going to be in my wardrobe for a long time.

Lastly, I don’t know if this item actually counts as an accessory, but I don’t care. B*FLY‘s free prize on the Menstuff Hunt is the Fallen Tattoo. It is an excellent, tough-looking sleeve design which is so good I couldn’t resist including it in the picture! It comes with appliers for Adam, Slink and TMP and is a great tattoo to add to your collection.

That’s it for me today. I hope your day has gone as wonderfully as mine has. If you are hunting, always remember to keep your eyes peeled for group gifts, MM boards, and other items. It is always nice to find a special surprise you might have otherwise missed. Take care everyone and I will see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Happy Free Accessory Day Everyone!

whc unknown comic 2_001

I hope you had a memorable Valentine’s Day, however you chose to spend it. Today Fab Free is putting up freebie and cheapie accessories that deserve a moment in the spotlight. Hopefully, something we love will strike your fancy.

One of my favorite stores, Kauna is well known for high quality men’s clothing. So, it came as a shock to me when I found the Paper Bag Head in their marketplace store! For only 10L, it comes with 9 textures and a matching hand puppet! Relive your fleeting moments of fame as the unknown ventriloquist, and laugh yourself silly!

I am currently covering the great Menstuff hunt, and one of the coolest accessories is this free Celtic Necklace from Timeless Designs. Originally posted here, there isn’t a great deal more to say about it other than it is well made and would complement a wide variety of outfits. The silver beads and cross on the black cord are an extremely masculine look and for free, this is an excellent pick up.

whc 911 2_001

Swagga‘s marketplace store has several very interesting freebies, but my favorite was this highly-detailed ball cap. It was created as a free tribute to the bravery of the first responders of 9/11, and when I laid eyes on it, I was sure it had to be included in this post. First rate work, it is a nice memorial to an exceptional group of people.

Rebellion made the sunglasses in this pic, and a visit to their store will reveal this and four other quality free group gifts! Their system is a little different than most. Pick up the free group gifts you want, then before wearing them put on your Rebellion name tag. When you put the items on while wearing the group tag, the items will be enabled. It is easy to do and for items like these great sunglasses, worth it.

One last (but certainly not least) accessory from the Menstuff hunt I am thoroughly enjoying is the free Sergeant’s Bling Necklace from V-Spot. Simple and extremely masculine, this Menstuff Hunt prize is one that many of us are going to want to pick up. Items like these are great reminders that quality jewelry is not just made for women.

Ok, that is all I have to say at the moment I am off to hunt more bargains. Take care everyone and I will see you on the grid! (and also on Marketplace)—–WHC Riler

Menstuff Ahoy!

whc LKD pirate 1 a

whc LKD pirate1 b

Ahoy Matees! ARGGH…cough, cough, cough. Okay, That’s about the extent of my pirate role-play. It’s the “Argghs” that kill me. It’s hard to sound sexy when you start coughing and flailing your arms wildly in international amateur sign language for “I am ok, don’t call an ambulance”. That can kind of take the sexy out of things.

Luckily, the clothes can bring the sexy back and that’s what I like most about the outfit I’m wearing from Lo Kajirus Designs. The “Like A Pirate Mesh Slave Outfit” Menstuff Hunt gift comes role-play ready for daring adventurers, club hoppers and cabin boys across the grid. It is a highly unique outfit and consists of Mesh pantaloons, jewelry, Mesh eye-patches, a collar (both scripted and non-scripted) and a colorful belt sash. The pantaloons come in five sizes for a good fit, and the accessories are fun and quite attractive. Overall, the quality of the outfit is impressive and for only 1L, it’s a bargain. It doesn’t matter if your pirate vessel is a schooner or a shopping cart, it’s the clothes that make the man O’war! Aye, prepare to be boarded!

Seven Deadly s{K}ins is offering the Menstuff Hunt Bowie Skin in both taupe and walnut tones with and without hairbases as their free hunt prize. Heavily freckled and with super realistic facial hair, they are considerably handsome skins. I was quite impressed with the quality as well as the fact that 7DS also includes appliers if you are lucky enough to have slink hands and feet. The Bowie skin is definitely an excellent pick up for those of us looking for an quality skin upgrade for free!

whc piratecart FE Style 2_001

As I sailed through the calm seas of the Menstuff Hunt, I encountered this wonderful Jacket and Shirt Combo from FE Style. The Wekleh Jacket w/T-Shirt is a one piece mesh evocative of maritime clothes in an entirely different way. The simple, understated styling gives a classic masculine look for any male avi. Offered in four sizes, one of which is Fitmesh, a fine fit without any fuss will be easy to accomplish. Perfect for the dock or the deck, this 1L hunt prize is certainly a first-class item to grab.

The Menstuff Hunt is a 1L hunt but only 31 stores elected to charge for their gifts. The hunt object you are looking for is a blue T-Shirt and can be small, so follow any hints that have been posted on the Menstuff Hunt page. You will not find a better run Men’s hunt on Second Life. So ends this chapter in my Menstuff voyage for now, take care everyone and a quick reminder that Valentine’s Day approaches. Enjoy SL and I will see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Should The Evenings Grow Cooler…

 

whc kauna fall 1

We are enjoying a beautiful summer now, my favorite season of the year. In real life, I am a warm-weather creature and even in Second Life I tend to avoid cold areas – lest I lose a few pixels to virtual frostbite. However, one pleasant surprise for me lately was seeing some excellent fall wardrobe items pop up this early in the year. I have decided to take a few minutes of valuable beach time and devote them to sharing some cooler weather clothing that has recently been offered to us, the male bargain hunters of Second Life.

The FREE FaMeshed group gift this month comes from Kauna and includes the diamond orange sweater, the steel blue XIV shirt and tweed overcheck trousers (not shown here). All three items are of excellent quality and look very much like real life clothing. The sweater is beautifully shaded and textured. I bet by the time fall arrives, it will be my favorite pullover. The realistic steel blue XIV shirt looks great without the sweater as well. The tweed overcheck trousers have a beautiful dark texture on them and are definitely a keeper, but for the pic I opted for sharp black tuxedo trousers that I bought from Kauna recently. The main reason I couldn’t wait to show you this though is located in the “additional items” box inside the group gift. Kauna, in addition to a generous array of options and sizes included in this gift, added a bonus box with some extra variations as well. This means you can wear both the sweater and that beautiful blue shirt under that amazing men’s Kuana leather jacket that they gave away last month at FaMeshed! The Jacket, which I blogged here previously looks fantastic! I have been on the lookout for some great things to wear under it, and this is a perfect chance to get a sweater and a shirt that look absolutely perfect with it! In case you missed it when Tiana posted it previously here, you finally have a second chance to pick it up. Hurry though, the month is nearly over, and whether you were lucky enough to get the jacket last month or not, this is a great chance to get very high quality clothing for FREE!

IKON is offering another FREE group gift for a very limited time. If you click the above picture, and once you are in my flickr, click the picture once more, you will get a closer look at the IKON Odyssey Eyes – Clarity. They are a light gray-ish blue with distinctively shaped pupils and plenty of reflections. They are Mesh, but could be used as system eyes if you prefer. They even included a hud to make fitting and selecting options easier. I don’t expect them to be out long, so run to IKON to pick up these FREE eyes while they are still available.

whc fall Fe Style 1

The Menstuff Hunt has been great this time around. All month I have been posting fabulous clothing and items that were part of it. Now, with the hunt ending at the end of the month, this is my last chance to share some items with you that I thought worthy of special attention. Fe Style is offering this light denim jacket that is going to be perfect as the season turns to fall or for a cool summer’s night. The Tartan Denim Jacket is a mesh one-piece including the white T-Shirt, comes in 5 sizes for worry free fit, and looks lightweight and comfortable to wear. I love the range of colors in the jacket! It manages to be multihued, yet is very easy on the eyes with its mix of blues and gray. For the cost of only 1L this is definitely a good pickup, and yet another reason for people to hunt the Menstuff Hunt (even if they haven’t started yet).

The riot of color in the lower two pictures comes courtesy of Come Soon Poses. Their FREE gift for the Menstuff Hunt, *CS* Paparazzo is a beautiful fall-themed photo prop that I am thrilled to put to use already. It comes with a bench and a pose, but you can always move them out of the way and substitute whichever items you intend to use. The colors are vibrant, and when fall comes around this will be an excellent addition to your photo prop collection, or even to your own back yard.

whc fall lovecats 1

The Menstuff Hunt gift from Lovecats is the No Club Jacket, the perfect article of clothing to wrap up my coverage of the Menstuff Hunt for now. It is a one-piece mesh item, but it appears to have 4 layers of clothing (a T-Shirt, shirt, hoodie and jacket) integrated into it. It comes in five sizes for a good fit. Although it is very snug around my waist and required some emergency slider dieting, the great look of the garment more than made up for that tiny inconvenience. “Lone wolf – no club” is emblazoned on the back with a white wolf logo giving it a biker style look. Each part of the mesh looks very realistic and, since it is one piece, it is very easy to wear once you perfect its fit for your avi. Biker style, unbelievably inexpensive, and simple to wear, Fe Style did a superb job on this FREE gift. I hope you like it as much as I do.

Next up, I will be doing the Biker Hunt, which started just two days ago. I want to point out that Tellaq, an excellent store for male skins, has a Midnight Mania board at their main store. The group is required, but it is free. Although the target number seems high, when new skins and avy packages get put up on the board the target is met for several days. I should know, because that Midnight Mania is a regular stop for me on Second Life, and I get nearly every prize package they offer. Tellaq is especially good at darker skins which feature extremely highly defined muscle textures. It just so happens that the skin currently on the midnight mania board is called “Saint” and is perfect for my new biker look, as you can see here. If you are looking for a skin upgrade, haunt the MM board and you will probably come up with something that pleases you. It’s worth the effort.

Well, with my sneak peek into fall now complete, I think I am going to strip off these clothes and hit a nice, quiet beach for a little “me” time. Please, enjoy the rest of the summer with us at Fab Free and don’t worry, we will keep an eye out for amazing deals whatever the season. Until next time, get some sun and I will see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Staying Cool With Menstuff!

whc gabriel ms 061615

Happy Wednesday everyone! This June has been fantastic for male freebie and cheapie-hunters! This week, I bring you more items from the Menstuff Hunt, a one hundred store hunt that runs until the end of June. Hunt prizes are at most 1L, but the majority of them are offered for FREE! There is no reason not to roll your sleeves up and get hunting, the prizes are too good to pass up!

Gabriel, a store with a reputation for generous FREE group gifts, created this beautiful floral print shirt for the Menstuff Hunt. The Mesh Gradation Flower shirt comes in two colors: blue and black. The floral pattern appears in the bottom quarter of the shirt and sleeves for a subtle, summery look without making the shirt look feminine. The lighter color in the upper part of the shirt draws the eye to the chest area where the shirt is unbuttoned and open. This shirt will give you a cool, stylish, laid back look in whichever color you choose to wear. Gabriel’s FREE Menstuff Hunt gift is a great choice to wear around the grid this summer.

To complement the shirt, I chose the Men’s Mesh Kanto Chino Jeans from Hawker’s House. Sporting extremely well-done shading and texturing, these gray jeans look realistic and provide a very manly look, if you know what I mean. There is no reason we should go around looking like Ken dolls, so it’s always nice to see a little shading to give us guys a little added dimension. Hawker’s House’s hunt prize for the Menstuff Hunt is one of the most generous gifts in the entire hunt. For 1L, you get these swell mesh jeans, the blue denim boots I am wearing and a red nyc T-Shirt (not pictured). The Men’s Mesh Doc Martin Style Boots in Denim are very nicely textured and likely to stand out more than simple black or brown leather Doc Martin style boots. There is something you should be aware of when you get this excellent hunt gift. I have noticed from personal experience that automatic unpacking scripts occasionally don’t transfer the alpha to inventory along with the other items (if the alpha is no copy). In order to unpack this gift, I strongly recommend rezzing the box on the ground and manually unpacking it instead of clicking the box as instructed. This way, you will have everything you need to enjoy these fantastic boots. Quality, inexpensive footwear for men is not an easy find on Second Life, and for only 1L these boots from Hawker’s House are of high enough quality to deserve a very close look! Plus, you get the Kanto Chino Jeans as well!

My necklace is part of the Menstuff Hunt prize from Timeless Designs. The Rebel Black Agate Rope Necklace and Bracelet are both included in the Menstuff Hunt gift. I really liked the simple, masculine look of these pieces. If you look closely, you can see the braiding of the rope and the designs on the gray beads. Great care and time was obviously invested in creating these products. This hunt gift will only set you back 1L, and Timeless Designs made sure it was money well spent. I know I will enjoy it and hope that some of you will as well.

whc fett ms 061615

When I first saw this T-Shirt, I knew I had to blog it. The Fetthunterblack T-Shirt from Fliped Out Designs is a great item for the Sci-fi geek nestled inside all of us. Inspired by the universe’s favorite bounty hunter, the T-Shirt is designed with a large playing card like image with the word “Hunter” in the middle of it. At least I hope it is playing card like. If it was a tarot card I would be packing my bags right now instead of writing this. No reason to take any chances concerning my own fate. This unique graphic tee is the FREE Menstuff Hunt Gift from Fliped Out Designs and is available like the rest of the hunt prizes until the end of June.

These black boots were a super find over at The Grey Goose. The Black A** Kickers turned out to be just what I needed to complete this outfit. They have a detailed leather texture and silver metal fasteners, one zipper and three skull buckles. Originally, I had mixed feelings about highlighting them because they are not resizable at least by any method I am aware of. On the shapes I regularly use, the fit was imperfect. Of course, in these days of mesh, it is not unusual to have to adjust your shape to wear something. So, that was not enough reason to discard a perfectly nice pair of FREE black leather boots, especially considering you can pick them up and make your own decisions. Personally, I kept them!😉

Some readers might have noticed I am wearing a different skin than usual. STALKERS! The Menstuff Hunt skin from Seven Deadly Skins is very nice, easily passing my very picky standards, and absolutely no surprise to me. Although it is good enough for any male avy to wear, it is an incredible pick up for any new residents or alts out there. There is no reason to look new when you can find a skin this nice for FREE! Thank you for such a nice hunt gift.

Lastly, I want to point out one item that is NOT part of the Menstuff Hunt. Rather, it is an entirely FREE gift for a limited time from Poetic Colors. The Summer Sky Eyes – Beach Nighteyes are a beautiful blue with some pink and lavender mixed in. Click on my pictures above to get into my flickr, then click once more to magnify the image for an up-close look at these eyes. They are only available for a limited time, so if you like them, run over and pick these up as soon as you can.

That’s it for this week. Although I have highlighted over twenty items from the Menstuff Hunt this month, there are one hundred stores participating. So, try as I might, I have only scratched the surface of this wonderful hunt. I want to take a moment to remind everyone that the For Him Hunt is still going on, but ends on the nineteenth of this month. So, if you want to pick up a really sexy workout outfit blogged here, this is your last chance. Until next time my friends, take care and see you on the grid. —–WHC Riler

Blogger Attempts To Increase Popularity By Appearing Nearly Naked!

whc slavie lkd 1

With all the lovely Fab Free bloggers, I’m sure you will all be disappointed that the nearly-naked one is me. However, since I already have your attention, here is another helping of amazing prizes from the Menstuff Hunt. It is a 1L hunt, but many of the stores have put their prizes out for free! I realize that the outfit I am wearing will not appeal to every male avy on the grid. Some of us have very few opportunities to wear something like this. Being a blogger, though, is about helping all people find wonderful items. A great set of silks like this could come in handy one day for a rowdy intimate role play or a costume-based event, even if you are not naturally submissive. The Kanzi Silks in Brown from Lo Kajirus Designs are partially mesh, with flexi silk panels which move beautifully as you dance. In style, they have an Asian inspired design while maintaining a classic silk look appropriate for this kind of garment. This is a very sexy look, has tons of style and is a great item to pick up at only 1L.

In all of the pictures in this post, I am wearing a set of eyes I picked up in the Menstuff Hunt over at Avi-Glam. The FREE AG Frozen Eyes are a beautiful light silvery blue and are going right into my eye collection. I am especially excited because I was unfamiliar with Avi-Glam until now, so now I have another potential source of excellent quality eyes thanks to this hunt!

This pose is another prize from this Menstuff hunt. Hopefully, you are getting the idea of how broad the spectrum of hunt prizes is in this one-hundred-store hunt. The M-Sheer-Menstuff-10 from Pics n Poses is a particularly nice pose, best used highlighting the left shoulder and chest of the model. I used it turning slightly, to show more of the details in the front of the Kanzi Silks, and it worked nicely. This is a very nice FREE gift from the people at Pics n Poses.

whc gray pin suit 1_001

Slipping into something a little more comfortable (for you to see me in), this really great gray suit is the FREE Menstuff Hunt prize from (Red)Sand. The Pin Stripe Suit in gray is a set including a matching mesh pin stripe blazer and slacks. The blazer has the black, open-collar dress shirt integrated into it, and (Red)Sand thoughtfully included an optional gap hiding layer, just in case you need it. As it turns out, I did not. The fit was excellent on my avatar without it. The material looks soft and comfortable; it will go nicely in my smart casual wardrobe for those nights that call for a bit more than a T-Shirt and jeans.

whc oddity orn 4_001

Oddity is an excellent store on Second Life and has created some truly amazing items, including a pair of group gift boots that are SO good, I changed the rules of my blog just so I could write them up! For the Menstuff Hunt, their prize is this unique fitmesh shirt featuring an excellent texture hud that they are giving to us for FREE! The Eivissa Mistic BASIC Shirt is definitely casual but highly attention getting with the realistic cloth textures and rich, decorative detailing. The buttons appear to be metal, standing out from the shirt and the button holes are closed loops, an eye-catching touch. The best part about the shirt, though, is the texture hud that comes with it. It offers the shirt in six colors, the trim in six colors, the buttons in six colors, plus it has two options for brightness and the choice of it being materials-enabled or not! If there was an award for most fantastic hud on Menstuff Hunt prize, Oddity would win it hands down for creating this prize!

The black jeans I chose to help show off this shirt are part of the Menstuff hunt prize from Wilson’s Designs. These are simply styled and carry a nice black denim texture making them a good choice for a go-to mesh set of basic black jeans. That isn’t all you’ll find in the hunt prize over at Wilson’s Designs. These jeans come with a gray, zippered men’s jacket, too, making the hunt prize even greater. For a FREE hunt prize, this is a very good pick up as well.

My last highlighted item this week comes from a creator who is one of my personal favorites. Over the years, Etham has made – and yes, even given away as hunt gifts – some gorgeous crosses. For this Menstuff hunt they have given us the Knight Cross Necklace in gold and black. Although it would look especially great in a Goth style outfit, it is still simple enough to be worn with more casual clothes. The Knight Cross Necklace comes with a short or long chain version and is offered to us for FREE from Etham.

I began this week’s post nearly naked; slithering about to some intoxicating world beat music under the glare of the hot desert sun, and managed to end the post sharing with you my affinity for the crosses Etham has produced over the years. I, my friends, am not easily pigeon-holed. As a blogger, that means I am inclined to share a wide variety of items instead of just those that are “my style”. Or, it might just mean I am crazy. Either way, have fun looking for the little blue T-Shirts that hold the Menstuff prizes in them, and I will be seeing you on the grid very soon!—–WHC Riler

Shamic’s running amok with the Men Only Hunt!

So, I’ve decided to let Shamic do a post tonight since I had already done 2 for myself earlier. Plus, there are some great men’s things available right now with the Men Only Hunt 5 going on. I also suggested he head over to the ‘stuff Lounge and see if there were some goodies to show off.

MOH51

So, Shamic made a few stops from the Men Only Hunt list, which you have to get from HERE, as there are no LM’s in each hunt prize to send you to the next location. Luckily, the list also includes hints, which made the prizes a little easier to find. When I saw DuckNipple on the list, that was the first place I sent Shamic too, as I knew there would be something good. Neither of us were disappointed. The long-sleeved, striped sweater he has on is their hunt gift, and, as with all of the gifts, it was free. It is mesh, and comes in 2 fitmesh sizes, as well as 3 standard sizes. Shamic is a standard medium, but he had to go with the small, as they fit a little on the large size. The other hunt prize he’s showing off is from MINA Hair. His Alex knit toque and dark brown hair combo is their hunt prize, and you actually get 2 different hair versions, as well as the hat without the hair, meaning this is easily a unisex prize. It also comes with a HUD to change the texture of the toque. When hunting for MOH5 prizes, you are looking for a tall glass of beer🙂 . It made me thirsty! LOL.

MOH52

After clothing himself in his new finds, Shamic’s trip to the ‘stuff Lounge rewarded him with a new pair of sneakers. These multicoloured chucks are from Citrus, and are a free MENstuff group gift. The MENstuff group is L$50 to join, but the gifts from the different designers are always getting switched out, so there is always good stuff to grab.

MOH53

I think Shamic is rather pleased with his look. What do you think? Not bad for a bunch of freebies eh? OK, we are out of here, I’ve let Shamic have enough time running around by himself and it’s time for me to put him away before he gets into trouble. LOL! Until next time, TTFN.

Introducing Shamic Ember, Calle’s newly male av!

Hello everyone! I would like to introduce my original SL av to you, the pre-Calle av, when I couldn’t figure out how to remove the torch from my hand at Welcome Island…remember that dang torch? LOL. Anyways,  this is Shamic Ember, and while he did not start off as a he, I wanted to be able to show off some of the great men’s things you can find around the grid, so voila…the magic of SL allowed me to change Shamic’s gender🙂 Then, all he needed to do was make a few stops, and I think he turned out pretty good. Let me tell you what he got.

comfycouch1

I’m going to start off with the skin. 7 Deadly s{K}ins  is one of those great skin shops that dabbles in both female and male skins, and lately has had many free group join opportunities. Shamic was lucky enough to get into the group during the last free join, and had his pick of quite a few group gifts. The one he is wearing is the August group gift. If any of you male readers out there have gotten yourselves the SLink hands and feet for guys, this skin has those appliers included! This skin is free for group members, but the join fee, as of this post, is L$200. As I said though, there have been an awful lot of free join opportunities lately, so keep your eyes open, you never know, but, with the multitude of back group gifts you can get right now, L$200 is still a great deal.

As this is Shamic’s official introduction, he thought he should dress up. Lucky for him, when he joined the MENStuff group, and headed over to the gift lounge, he found the perfect t-shirt…it has a tie! Tie’s totally say dressed up, right? Even if it is just a texture on a t-shirt😛 This free group gift is from alpha lab, and is a mesh, materials ready shirt, in all the standard sizes as well as a fit mesh version. Now, it is supposed to be texture change, and did come with a HUD, but it was having script issues, so until I hear back from the creator about it, consider it only available with the white tie pattern. Hey, it is still a great find, working HUD or not. The MENStuff group is only L$50 to join, but there are many group gifts from different designers available, so it is totally worth the fee.

comfycouch2

I could not let him wander around without pants, so lucky for Shamic, Nightmare Designs is currently participating in the Anarchy Hunt and has a great outfit as their L$1 hunt prize. Of the outfit, he is wearing the mesh pants and Doc Marten Boots, but there is also a pair of mesh, hanging suspenders and a mesh tank top. All the mesh pieces come in the standard sizes, and the Doc Martens are materials ready. You are looking for a little Anarchy A symbol, and the hint is ‘Why is there graffiti on my wall?’, oh, and there is also a gift for the ladies as well, so everyone should check it out.

Before we end this post, I wanted to quickly mention the cute couple pose couch we are on in that first picture. I wasn’t going to let Shamic do this first post alone, so I needed a pose for both of us to be in, and while searching the multitude of couples poses on the Marketplace, I found this great one. The couch is from OMFG Poses, and is called Relax. It comes with the poses and is totally modifiable to allow you to adjust until you fit together perfectly. At only L$1, it is a great addition to anyone’s pose collection.

Alrighty, that is it for us. What do you all think of Shamic? I think he is going to be great, I may even let him pose on his own next time! LOL. So, until next time, TTFN from the both of us *waves*
