Splashback

Splashback

The For Him Hunt 2 ends July 31st, but there is still time for us men to fill out our inventories with things like this excellent shirt from Trashed. I picked this one up by finding the hunt icon in their main-store. This is a 1L hunt and the shirt was well worth 1L and much more.

This shirt comes in all the standard sizes as well as an additional fitmesh size in the box (much appreciated). I really liked that it wasn’t just your “plain black shirt” but that it had the “splashback” design on the shirt. A nice touch to a classic t-shirt design.

Eclectic Essences at Kustom9

Gacha Kustom9 Hello Fab Free’rs I hope you’re doing well. It’s been a minute since I did some gacha-ing and there are several cute gachas waiting to be played at the current round of Kustom9. You know I can’t resist skin gachas, and especially not when the Essences gacha is set at 75 lindens per play. Also, ieQED has some sweet summer bangles at just 29 lindens per play.  These gachas are really just two of many but they caught my attention first! haha

This beautiful skin is one of the 12 Arwen gacha prizes from Essences at Kustom9. These gachas include Lelutka head applier only. Matching body appliers can be found for sale at the Essences main store. Of the 12 total versions in various skin tones, 10 commons and 2 rares. Pru is wearing the Arwen #9 which is one of the common prizes in the dark01 tone. I personally rarely wear the darker tones, but when I tried this one on, it was just too pretty! It really is a beautiful skin. It also looks lighter or darker depending on your windlight settings, which really just makes me like it even more. At just 75 lindens per play, if you’re a Lelutka head wearer, you need this skin or one of the other equally beautiful versions in your inventory!

I was so excited when I saw that ieQED had a gacha at this round of Kustom9. These bangles are so cute, and are the type of jewelry you could wear with anything. The ieQED gacha is just 29 lindens per play. The rare gets you a color change hud, I wasn’t so lucky, but I’m thrilled with the three bangles I did get. How cute is that pineapple?! Truly I feel like these little “eclectic” bracelets capture the fun of summer perfectly. There are 10 total bangles, and the rare hud will give you the option of picking between 5 metal tones and 6 gem colors.

So you can get a good look a the other Essences and ieQED gacha prizes at Kustom9, I’ve included a copy of the gacha keys below. Good Luck!

Another Man’s Treasure

Another Man's Treasure

The popular For Him Hunt is making a round 2 and is already proving lucrative as a 1L hunt for guys. I made my first stop at Fe Style and picked up this zippered T-shirt called “Klett” for only 1L. It comes in two versions — one with a gold zipper and one with a silver zipper and you also get a color change hud that changes the color of the side slit insets with a total of 8 color choices, making it even more versatile.

This shirt is an excellent fit and comes in all the standard mesh sizes. If you’re still in a standard body, it also includes a good alpha layer, but does fit mesh bodies cleanly as well (I put it on my slink body and it was a great fit for it too).

I was then off to do a bit of sim exploring. If you’re looking for photogenic hot spots, I highly recommend “Junktown” just for looking around. As they say, one man’s junk… is another man’s treasure!

Art Deco Darling

Tuesday
I feel a little like a Showgirl in these fabulous group gifts from Swallow and SlackGirl, and I’m perfectly fine with that! It’s been a while since I showed some pretty makeup and accessories, so these group gifts are just the thing. It’s extra fun that they all happen to look so lovely together!

SlackGirl is one of my favorite stores for makeup in Second Life. There seem to always be group gifts as well, which certainly doesn’t hurt. This gorgeous lipstick is part of the huge Clarice set available FREE to all SlackGirl group members. This particular gift is for the Catwa head-wearers only. The gift includes 3 huds with 8 lipstick shades each. I really like the high shine of these lipsticks, it’s a nice departure from the matte lipsticks you see a lot. Also at SlackGirl, along with many other gifts, are these pretty little eye jewels. These FREE group gift eye jewels can be worn with mesh or classic avatars. The gift includes a left and right attachment, and a hud that allows you to adjust the jewel color, and the metal color. The SlackGirl group has a one time join fee of 100 lindens, however I’m certain you won’t be disappointed, there are several group gifts still available including the ones I’ve shared here.

I will admit, I don’t often wear earrings in Second Life, but I think these are beautiful! These art deco looking earrings are one of several FREE group gifts out at Swallow. These beautiful earrings include a color change hud as well, and can be resized using the hud. I’m sure you’ve been wondering about the pretty butterflies floating around my hair! These are another FREE group gift at Swallow. This butterfly headpiece comes in several colors and can be sized via touch menu, I of course chose this orange color because it reminds me of the Monarch butterflies I love. At the original size this accessory is more of a hat, but I used the resize scripts and scaled mine down to look more like a fancy fascinator. The Swallow group also has a one time join fee of just 30 lindens. This is a steal when you consider the lovely group gifts available!

Finally, if you like the pretty face Pru has on with the red eyeliner that goes so well with the lipstick from SlackGirl, it’s another of the Corrie gacha appliers Essences has available for just 75 lindens per play at The Liaison Collaborative ! There’s more info about this head applier in my previous post here.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

I have always found something magical in Second Life about dancing. And in real life, when I have gone to festivals, I have always been taken in by the beauty of different types of dancing. Veil dancers, especially, have taken my interest.

Right now, there are four gifts available for FREE at [House of Ruby] — two each for both men and women. They are beautiful, classy bodysuits that could be used for lingerie, or as depicted above, for something more exotic even.

If you join the [House of Ruby] group (it is a FREE join) you can get a matching men and women’s Ruby Leopard bodysuit or unitard for FREE. The women’s suit includes a small top for modesty. These suits do not include system layers, but you get Omega and Slink appliers for each.

If you hit the subscriber (again this is FREE), you’ll be gifted with the suit that you see Loki wearing, except that the difference is the color — it is the “Leopard” color instead. Just as the group gift includes both a male and female version, the subscriber includes both a male and female version as well.

Nerdy Girl in-world Closing Sale

Super Heroes

It’s hard to see much beloved stores close their doors in Second Life… and Nerdy Girl has announced that she will be moving the in-world store to the Marketplace to pursue new adventures after July 12th. In the meantime, as a bit of a farewell gift to all the loyal customers who love nerdology, the in-world store is having a last hoorah and closing sale before it moves to the marketplace… a bonus for all of us loyal shoppers:)

Nerdy Girl has put out all the old gifts for one thing, so if you are a group member, stop by and pick up any you missed (the join fee is only 25L if you are not already a member, and with all the goodies, it’s worth joining).

In addition, all store merchandise is priced at 25L or lower, excluding gachas. In salute to the Nerdy ways, Loki and I decided to go as Nerd Heroes. I am not convinced that he got it quite right, but then he thinks I didn’t do it right either… we agreed to disagree, since Rainbow Brite is my favorite, and he said Superman was super.

My rainbow bright costume includes the mesh skirt, applier top and leggings, and the bow (which comes in a left, center, or right fit). For 25L, it’s quite a deal!

Loki’s mesh hoodie in all the standard sizes is quite a find indeed, as there is a texture change hud included. The hud changes the t-shirt and hoodie separately, for lots of nerd fun… hero symbols on the shirt and hoodie all separate for whatever hero you want to be that day. For 25L, there’s a hero in every guy just waiting to come out!

The Cart Wash Sale is still going strong. I stopped by today to have a look around and found myself picking up a classic essential at the Ruckus Cart — a polo shirt. This polo shirt will only set you back 10L, comes in all the standard mesh sizes and includes a color change Hud with six texture choices. The choices include a classic solid black, a classic solid grey, and 4 different striped colored polos. You really can’t go wrong with 6 shirts for 10L.

Life’s a Beach

Life's a Beach

I’m stopping in to make a quick blog post before hitting the waves to give you the 411 on a great find at the Cart Wash Sale. Ayva’s Attic has out some absolutely outstanding men’s beach shorts. There are two that are standard mesh and two that are made specifically for Aesthetic Avatars. Each pair of shorts is only 10L each and come in all the standard sizes. (Ladies there are four really pretty dresses on the cart for you as well too.)

I picked up my FREE cap from Fe Style as the June group gift. The group is FREE to join. It includes a resize script for easy fitting.

I also wanted to show you (yes yet another) Suicide Gurls tattoo, because they are just really fabulous. And this one matched my beach shorts. This one is the March group gift and is called Dahak and is (as you can see) pretty flowery. It is unisex as are all the others and includes system layers as well as appliers for Omega, Maitreya, Belleza and Slink. Just as before you get fresh, faded, and soft.

Okay… off to the beach for the day for me!

Day Eagle

Day Eagle

I love exploring new locations in Second Life… and coming across the Sim “Light Thoughts” was a lucky find. It’s a fantastic art installment with all sorts of dramatic color. It was also, I thought, the perfect back drop for the outfit I wanted to show off to you… since I also have a thing for latex😉

House of Ruby has out a new unisex outfit called Bijou. The regular price is 176L but right now you can pick up the Jet Nut color (I’m sporting it in the picture above) for only 75L at the creator’s in-world store or on the marketplace. You’ll get Slink and Omega appliers for mesh bodies. Note: there are NO system layers for this latex outfit.

I also wanted to show off another one of the Suicide Gurls group gifts, in case you haven’t yet dove in and decided to join up and grab the gifts. Remember, these tattoos are unisex. The tattoo in these pictures is the February group gift (yup its still out! Six months of gifts for your one time fee of 150L!) and is called Valborg. It comes in system layers as well as appliers for Omega, Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink. You also get the tattoo in fresh, faded and soft.

Day Eagle 2

I made one more stop before heading over to enjoy the sights at the art installment: the Cart Wash Sale. I couldn’t resist taking a peek at all the Carts this morning. I picked up this men’s Gold Eagle Necklace for just 10L at the Luminesse Cart. There are several other men’s offerings at the Cart as well as some lovely lady’s offerings as well. It’s a Cart chock full of beautiful jewelry and at only 10L each, not to be missed.

The Keys to Paniolo

The Keys to Paniolo

Astrid made her way to the Cart Wash Sale this morning and she didn’t have to twist my arm hard to convince me that I should head there myself to see what there was to see. It turned out to be well worth my time. There was a plethora of things for gentlemen to choose from, and it was hard to pick something to show you fellas first.

I finally decided on this Paniolo Outfit in grey by Roped Passion’s. (If grey is not your color, don’t stress… the cart also had it out in blue, brown, and green.) This outfit comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitmesh and the shirt and shorts are two separate pieces with excellent included alphas if you are using a system body. At only 10L for a full outfit, you just can’t go wrong.

And Ladies… don’t shy away from this Cart. There were goodies there for you as well!
