Remembering Pool Halls

Pool Shark

It’s been a while.

It’s been a while since I played pool. I miss those days. There isn’t a pool hall in my little town, and I’d have to drive a long distance to find one now. The atmosphere has changed as well. Pool tables are something you find only in bars where I live. When I was in college you could go to pool halls just to play pool, and they were places that were fairly neutral and welcome to all sorts of people.

I found Warehouse 999 and it made me remember a bit of the old days of pool halls. It’s a club that caters to both military (and non military) music lovers, with a pool table in the background. There’s a lot of quaint memorabilia up and if you like the blues, stop by for a listen.

Grabbing the right outfit.

FA Creations has out a great free December group gift… this Yuki outfit. The jacket includes a texture change hud with 6 possible choices and the outfit is made for both standard or mesh bodies. You’ll get the pants as well as the top and jacket as separates.

In the gift you’ll get sizes to fit:

  • Standard mesh sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh Sizes XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Belleza

Top it off.

I needed a finishing touch and found just what I was looking for in the Women Only Hunt 2. I picked up this free mesh rigged metal choker in gold at Secrets. This choker is pretty special in that it doesn’t clip. The mesh rigging lets it move with your neck so there is no issue of it cutting out the side of your neck with your avatar’s ao. I really like that. Plus its really stylish. Perfect for playing pool.

Afternoon at the Museum

Can you find the fabulously free outfit in this picture?

Coming soon to FabFree

Look down… lower… to the left… there it is!

If you haven’t had the chance to visit the Second Life Natural History Museum, it is totally worth a stop.  There is tons to explore, not to mention some pretty impressive dinosaur builds.   You might even learn something too!
Coming soon to FabFree

An afternoon at the museum calls for a great new outfit, luckily I happened to stop by one of my favorite stores as they were gearing up for an event.  Etchaflesh is hosting a Halloween hunt again this year, with a wall full of 12 gorgeous prizes.  Swing by, grab a hud, find all of the tombstones and you can take your pick!  You can play once each day, and get every item off the wall for your trick-or-treat basket before the hunt ends October 31st.

I snagged up this cute knotted tank and stripped capris over the course of two days.  The capris include a pretty sweet color change hud.

There is no group needed, and the hunt is completely free!

Coming soon to FabFree

I needed a little something to round out my outfit, so I hopped on over to Earthstones to take a look at their wall of group gifts.  I snapped up this great earrings and bracelet set, and a load of other jewelry.  The group is $250 to join, but there are over a dozen beautiful and classy items to snag, making this one totally worth the money.

~All the Things!~

Heartbreaker

Heartbreaker

House of Ruby has out a new line of T-shirts for men and they are real heartbreakers in the making… you can get one in the color blue for the promo price of just 56L off the Marketplace. The shirt comes in system layers as well as Slink and Omega Appliers for mesh bodies.

I did some checking around and paired the colorful T-shirt with facepaint which I found as a past group gift at Zibska. In fact there is an entire wall out of past group gifts that include make up, jewelry, and more. The group is 200L to join, but it’s a one time fee, and after joining, you’ll be able to fill your inventory with lots of boxes to open. The Marsh face paint comes in a full fatpack of 7 colors and you’ll get system layers as well as and Omega applier for mesh heads.

I tossed on an oldie but goodie to finish off the look… Wicca’s Wardrobe is another group that leaves out their past group gifts for customers to enjoy. I’ve blogged these Ares pants before but it’s worth mentioning that for your 50L join fee at Wicca’s Wardrobe you’ll gain access to many past group gifts for both men and women… like these excellent quality pants.

Time and Again

Time and Again

Certain stores are good for group gifts time and again… and Prism is one of those that offers a top quality monthly group gift for both ladies and men. In case you missed them, there are several past group gifts out, even though I’m showing you the current FREE September group gift called “Jupiter.”

Jupiter is an outfit that comes with white capris pants and a sweater with a texture change hud. The sweater is white as well, but includes four grey print overlays including the timepiece texture in the picture above. You get all the standard mesh sizes.

Last month’s group gift is just as nice, and you’ll want to pick it up too, if you haven’t already. Gabriel showed it to you [HERE].

Love showed you some of the fabulous items to be had at the Cart Wash Sale from Dark Water Designs in her post [Here] but the menfolk are not to be left out. As Love showed you, the cart has gorgeous offerings for the ladies, but also some top quality offerings for men… and all for just the tiny price tag of only 10L each.

I picked up my outfit for only 20L total: 10L for the t-shirt (you get the print version shown and a solid grey as well in the box) and the pants were also only 10L. Like the t-shirt, the pants box gives you two options… the charcoal shown as well as a camo (not shown. With each, you get all the standard sizes, plus two fitmesh sizes — all for just 10L. In addition, if you purchase the pants, there is a pair of shoes included!

Fall for Vintage

Fall for Vintage

The Cart Wash Sale is well under way and I just fell in love with this Vintage set in brown from Orquidea. These are applier pieces that come separately for just 10L each, and also include a system layer for non-mesh avatars as well.

10L will get you the shirt in a system layer and appliers for Maitreya or Belleza. An additional 10L will get you the jeans in the same, with the addition of sculpty cuffs at the ankles for a pretty and realistic look. If you prefer shorts, there are shorts also available. I’m sporting the set in brown, but there was a pretty set available in red as well!

Blue Twist

Blue Twist

Out of the blue… I decided to get a little twisted… and put together a quick outfit to share with all of you.

The Twisted Hunt is on, and while this hunt is a tough one, the hunt gifts are well worth the finding. My amazing Rune in Blue mesh shirt (it comes in all the standard sizes) is the Twisted Hunt gift that is yours FREE when you hunt it down at Roped Passion’s main-store. There is also a nice ladies gift, two side gifts, and you can get the shirt in grey for only 25L if you so desire. A pretty fantastic deal, if I don’t say so myself.

I was also checking out the Fall Tears Hunt and when I started unpacking my boxes, was pleased to discover a pair of classically styled blue pants that worked perfect with my blue shirt from Roped Passion’s.

Stop by Horr Menswear and do a bit of hunting for the Fall Tears Hunt and this pair of blue slacks in all the standard sizes is yours for 1L and your hunting time. The cut is superb and they have a nice detailing of seams and pockets on the back rear end. These paired nicely with my shirt, but would go well with just about anything from dressing up to casual shirts as well.

360 Cargo

360 Cargo

Today’s likely to be a busy day today, but luckily I have pockets… because I figure I’ll need them to hold all the sticky note reminders of all I have to do. These FREE gift cargo pants in blue are by 360 and the group is FREE to join as well so you won’t spend a single linden if you decide to pick them up. They come in all the standard sizes and you get an excellent alpha layer. There is a bonus grey tank top included with the pants, but I opted to go without in order to show off the July tattoo gift at Suicide Gurls.

One hint on the FREE pants… 360 is part of Allure, which is a Ladies store. If the teleport lands you downstairs in the women’s section, simply walk upstairs to the men’s department, which is 360, and that’s where you’ll find the gift.

But I digress… this July group gift from Suicide Gurls is excellent. Like all their group gift tattoos, it is unisex… so ladies you can pick it up too if you fancy it. The group fee is 150L but there are now 7 group gifts out for you to pick up, including this amazing tattoo. It includes a fresh, faded, and soft version, as well as system layers, and appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, Omega, and TMP. You’re bound to find a way to wear this one.

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!
