Back Against the Wall

Prism

The Work Week Cometh

I thought I’d get one more post in before the work week begins (and very little time to blog). I joined the group for FREE at Prism for Men and scored the Jeremy Outfit as the group gift. Astrid previously posted it here. This mesh outfit includes the shirt and pants with accompanying alphas AND a HUD to change each to four different colors. (4 pants x 4 shirts = 16 different outfit combinations).

Last Minute Hunting

There is still time left to find items in the Fall ’16 MenStuff Hunt. All items on this hunt are $0L – $1L.  I found the Men’s Classic Checkerboard Sneakers at Kingbal Stores for FREE all it just took a little searching. I also found some poses from Pics & Poses for FREE. I really need to update my collection.

Like an Anchor Around My Neck

Also on the MenStuff Hunt, I found this FREE Gold Anchor Necklace at ELYSIUM. The necklace also come in silver if gold isn’t your thing. It’s off to work, I’ll post when I can.

 

It’s good to be back!

March Comes In Like A Rabbit!

whc ashburylavarock 1

Happy Wednesday, everyone! Here we are in March with a whole new set of hunts and group gifts to pick up! When you do what I do, the beginning of a new month is always the most exciting period. Don’t forget what they say: March comes in like a rabbit, scurrying around picking up free gifts, and goes out like a rabbit, too! A much heavier one, weighed down with a glut of new inventory items, but still a rabbit!

Ashbury Designs is a very nice place to get male clothes. They are on my list of must visits at the beginning of a new month, and for good reason. Ashbury Designsfree group gifts have a way of making a home for themselves in my inventory and certainly their current one is a fine example. The Ace Military Shirt is a one piece mesh combo. Comprised of an open blue denim shirt with a very subtle camouflage pattern and a black T-Shirt, it is a simple look which looks very real-world plausible. Comfortable looking, it comes in 3 Mesh sizes, 2 Fitmesh and one Fitmesh for TMP bodies. The shade of blue of the shirt is beautiful and the detail and texture is extremely attractive! This is one free group gift you definitely should not pass up.

Lavarock has a new store and I am truly happy to welcome them back! For those of you who read my autobiography, you will recall I became a blogger partially because of a great free group gift Lavarock produced. I simply did not have enough friends on SL to tell about it, so I began blogging! I was thrilled when my editor, Andi, told me there was a new group gift in their store and I assure you it is excellent! The Urban Male Sneakers are a pair of Hi-top shoes for regular avy feet, so everyone can wear them if they like. In fact, since there is a woman’s version out in the women’s area at Lavarock as well, nearly everyone can wear them! They are Mesh and extremely cool. The most spectacular thing about them is the texture change hud! These sneakers come with a MONSTER HUD which gives you access to 15 sneaker textures, 5 laces, 5 tongues, 5 straps, 6 sock variations including hide and 2 sole colors. EPIC work on the hud, Lavarock. Thank you very much! For a free group gift, a hud like this is rare and these shoes are going to be keepers. Go get ‘em, people!

That’s all for me tonight. Rest assured I will be hopping around the grid picking up more freebies and cheapies tomorrow. Until then, I hope you take advantage of all the fun Second Life has to offer. See you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Last Chance Menstuff Hunters!

whc menstuff final 2_001

Hello to all you Fabbies out there! (I prefer Fab Freaks as a nickname but, quite frankly, I am afraid Love will chuck another stapler at me. Her aim is true.) The Menstuff Hunt ends on Monday so this is your last chance to pick up some very nice garments. Since we are out of virtual beer anyway, its time to get off the virtual couch and get out there hunting! I am going to be slightly briefer than usual in order to get this post up as soon as possible, so my apologies in advance to the creators of the impressive items I am showing off. They definitely deserve more individual attention then I can give them today.

That said, The IMaGE Factory is offering the free Tommy Hoodie Combo as their prize for the Menstuff Hunt! While the color looks fantastic in the above picture it is slightly misleading because the garment comes with a huge texture change hud giving the shirt 18 textures, the hoodie 16 and the jacket 12 textures! It comes in five sizes, two of which are fitmesh. Truly an impressive hunt gift, the current hunt hint is “so full of light, but always in shade”.

Swirl Poses made the pose I am using above, part of their 1L hunt prize for the Menstuff Hunt. The box includes five male poses and appears to be a set that I will be able to use for quite a while. If you take pictures on Second Life, you might want to pick this up, it could come in handy.

whc menstuff final 5_001

FashionNatic‘s Brutus open Shirt is one piece of Mesh including the open shirt and the very scary looking skull and crossbones T-Shirt. It looks great, kind of a dark and dangerous look perfect whether you play guitar in a grunge band or stay at home listening to pirated MP3s! Arrrrrrgh, it’s a pirate’s life mateys, pick this free Menstuff gift up and look cool living it.

If you look closely at the above picture you will see I snuck two bracelets into this post. They are the 1L Menstuff hunt prize from Glint. The Leather Bracelet With Metal Rings is the wider of the two and my personal favorite because of the rough masculine look. Both bracelets however are top quality and worth adding to your own personal collections. Click on my pic above twice and you can get a nice close up view of the items. I think you might like them.

The free Menstuff hunt prize from Pics n Poses is a nice pose called Contemplating! As you can tell in the above picture, it is a very natural looking relaxed pose. The best thing about this pose is one day I can use it to show off some really nice footwear, and those poses are hard to find.

This concludes my Menstuff coverage for now. Hurry now, the hunt will end tomorrow. Have fun and enjoy your Second Lives my friends, take care and I’ll see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Who says there’s a dress code for tree decorating?

So, am I the only one that will sometimes put on pretty lingerie and heels, and then do something like decorate my Christmas tree dressed like that…alone? Well, if you haven’t, you should!

TreeLingerie1

My lingerie is yet another fabulous KittyCatS Advent gift, this time, from Blacklace. The Katy : Red and White set is available, free for everyone, in day number 13. You get every possible system layer you could think of, cute little mesh bow attachments (you get a good view of the one on the back in one of my other pictures), as well as an Omega appliers hud for the mesh bodies and body parts that are Omega compatible. I actually went over to the Omega store to get the hud to set up my SLink feet to be Omega enabled so I could use the hud for the stockings.

TreeLingerie2

Speaking of stockings, I needed sexy shoes to compliment them and my new lingerie. The Lindy Shoes booth at the Wash Cart Sale totally helped me out there. I picked up the Oreil shoes in red, for SLink high feet, for only L$10! This is why I love the Wash Cart Sale. You really can’t beat a great bargain 🙂 There are a variety of shoes and boots for you to grab from this booth, both for SLink feet, as well as system feet.

TreeLingerie3

Now, while you are at the Wash sim for the Cart Sale, picking up your shoes, make sure you head over to the new monday booth for some sweet tattoos and funky face paints. New monday is actually a new project from our very own Julianna Seriman, blogger extraordinaire, turned body artist 🙂 I really liked how the Sweet Rose tattoo I picked up, for only L$10, ended up being framed perfectly with the back of my bra. Like they were meant to go together. Oh, and if you are into Fantasy type RP, you really should take a look at the face paints that are at the booth. You really let your imagination run wild Juli!

OK, lastly, the festive tree I am decorating. It is 1 part of a 3 part gift, again free from the KittyCatS Advent, for day 8, from Zanze. You get a pose and decor set, of which I am showing off the tree and ornaments, the pose that you get is for 2 people, and is really cute. You also get a gift for the guys, and a gift for the ladies. See, everyone will be happy!

Now that I am finished the tree, I’m going to go bake some cookies or something. Hmm…maybe not such a good idea to be in the kitchen and dealing with hot things with so much skin exposed. Wardrobe change! Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend! I’ll see you again soon. Until then, TTFN 🙂


What is Calle showing you…

Mishmash! This Women’s Hunt Stuff is a Blast!

The Women’s Stuff Hunt is in Full Swing and with less than two weeks left to hit 150 participating stores, I’ve been hitting the grid like a potato-masher so I could mishmash some fall styles for your wardrobe (and mine!)… and I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with these amazing finds!

Mish Mash This Women's Hunt Stuff is a Blast! [3]

My first stop on our Women’s Stuff Hunt tour will be Sweet Temptations where I found the outfit which I used as a “base” for the rest. (It is pictured above.) This sexy sort of safari feeling style called Azahara is fully mesh in all the standard sizes and includes an amazing set of gold mesh boots which are slink feet compatible (for high feet). The little red shirt was a breeze to find and FREE… and I was off and on my way to hunt again!

Mish Mash This Women's Hunt Stuff is a Blast! [1]

As you can see in the picture above, those boots from the Azahara outfit quickly became a staple in my wardrobe. My next stop, however, was U:Refined {U.R.} Fashion Designs where I picked up this sleek and versatile brown dress. The gift includes system layers as well as an omega applier and has a mesh panel to make the skirt blend for a flawless look. Well worth the 1L Women’s Stuff Hunt gift tag price!

I then dropped by Stars! where I was able to hunt for the great set of Fall Leaves Jewelry you see in the picture above. Another item that I am sure will become a wardrobe staple! Once I found the little red Women’s Stuff Hunt shirt, it too was a FREE Hunt Gift and voila! Another mishmash fall outfit for you!

Mish Mash This Women's Hunt Stuff is a Blast! [3]

Pictured above, you’ll notice that Astrid is still sporting that fabulously sultry chocolate dress from U:Refined {U.R.} Fashion Designs (I told you we’d be mishmashing!) but I added a little flair to it with two other gifts.

If you take time to Hunt at OSITO, their Women’s Stuff Hunt gift is the fabulous Leather Rose Jacket pictured both above and below, which I found to be perfect for mixing and matching with many different styles of outfits. It’s mesh, comes in all the standard sizes, and was another FREE Women’s Stuff Hunt gift!

If you are a collector of poses and enjoy photography, you’ll also want to take a glance at Pics n Poses before you finish your Hunting. Their Women’s Stuff Hunt Prize is also a FREE gift and is the pose featured above called “Glance” of course!

Mish Mash This Women's Hunt Stuff is a Blast! [4]

As you can see above, I am still donning that jacket from OSITO and the earrings from the Fall Leaves Jewelry Set from Stars!, but this time with another outfit.

If you head over to LOoLOo & Platypus you can pick up this Fall Flowers Set. The top comes in system layers as well as an omega applier (yay!).  The skirt is mesh in all the standard sizes, and the outfit includes the mesh boots as well! All this for 1L? How can you go wrong!

I hope you have as much fun mishmashing and hunting as I did!

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
