Wistfully Reflecting Upon My Salad Days…

Anims rising salad 1_001

Oh, my reckless SL youth! Those crazy days when I once wore a costume very much like this and danced on a pole at a club. It was a very odd time, but even back then I was very “Me”. In particular, I recall some rather dubious emoting capped with my all time favorite self observation. Shouting “Hey look, I’m a salad!” to the audience, my sexiness knew no bounds in those early days…

I am still having great fun unpacking prizes from The Spooky Nights Hunt, Presented By Firestorm. Animations Rising has put out an amazing FREE gift for the hunt, one too big for me to adequately describe. In fact, it took days for me to unpack it! It includes 55 male outfits from both the Rising Tribal and Rising Silks series and another 24 female ensembles. They seem to be pre-Mesh but they are bursting with extras and special effects particle sets, which could be especially useful when putting together your own costume and role-play outfits. The Rising Tribal – Gaius II – outfit is a tribute to the Greek Mother Goddess. The vines and leaves that wrap around the body are objects to wear rather than simply clothing layers. This means there is depth to them as opposed to looking inked or painted on. The dark green modesty pouch is very sexy but it does not conceal a great deal of you so carrying a large green houseplant or two might be useful to help keep covered up on sims that frown on something this revealing. This is outrageous clothing, so do me proud and if you wear it, try extra hard to make it memorable for everyone around you. My bet is that will be a task easily accomplished!

The Youth is another FREE gift included in Animations Rising‘s Spooky Nights Hunt Prize. It is the epitome of simplicity, consisting of an excellent loincloth, a wrist band and a leg band. Inspired by and featuring indigenous influences, there are an additional 7 outfits from the Rising Tribal series included in this enormous prize. For the pic above, I appropriated the spear from the warrior costume. First of all, I needed a weapon to give me that menacing look. Secondly, I wanted to point to the big white feathers adorning it and shout “Biggest…chicken…ever!”

The picture above also features the face paint from Fallen Gods Inc. It is another excellent FREE hunt item from The Spooky Nights Hunt and comes in four color schemes: Toxic, Magic, Flames and Doom. I chose to wear Doom with The Youth because it is dark and ashy, giving me a more primal and menacing look. This is an excellent pick up because it is a perfect finishing touch for a costume. Whether you intend to go out clubbing or prefer to role play, it will probably be a useful addition to your wardrobe.

whc solar 5_001

This final pic is of a silk outfit called Rising Silks – Solar , yet another prize from the Animations Rising massive FREE Spooky Nights Hunt Gift. Quite a few sexy male silks are included and some of them, such as “Solar”, include amazing particle light shows which are customizable and can be turned off if you prefer. You have to love a creator who says “In short, Rising Silks are designed to be SEXY, and that means, to ride very low on the hips, and cover as little as possible, while still being elegant and masculine.” This is some seriously creative stuff, and in this gift you will find an incredible variety of useful items.

This concludes my weekly chance to try to get away with showing as much skin as possible. If you haven’t started hunting yet, The Spooky Nights Hunt, Presented By Firestorm is a wonderful way to begin. The hunt object you are looking for is a skull, and Animations Rising is store number 16 on the Wicked path. Fallen Gods Inc. is store number 1 on the Bones path. With the holiday season in progress now, this is the time to pick up some fantastic freebies hunting. Take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Satyrically Speaking…


Hello my friends! I have been working my pixels off searching for awesome and unique Halloween-related items for men this year. I am starting off my October posts by showing you my favorite costume of the year so far: The Satyr from Siren’s Moon. The Satyrs were lustful, drunken woodland Gods. In short, my kind of deities! I considered researching Satyrs to fill this post with fascinating background information about them… but, why do that if I can make stuff up!?! For instance, did you know the Satyrs were not driven extinct because of acute liver problems related to alcoholism? You would think that, but after significant consideration, I came to the conclusion it was most likely due to stumbling drunkenly in the woods and choking to death on their pan flutes. At least I am pretty sure that’s how I would have gone had I been a Satyr.

Anyway, Siren’s Moon has made this excellent costume, a tribute to Greek mythology and the Satyrs, companions of Dionysus the Greek God of fertility and wine. The costume consists of a lower body alpha, a pants texture and beautifully done goat-influenced Satyr legs and tail. A laurel wreath and a set of horns provide the head with an authentic look. Together with a pan flute, this is quite an impressive hunt gift. So, if you are looking for a Halloween costume and want to stand out, this is a great pick up! For only 1L, it truly is a bargain. Take care everyone and, until next time, see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Clothes That Don’t Wear Out And Great Places To Wear Them!

8415 ab2_001

Hello, everyone! This week, I am sharing something a bit special with you; and it has to do with the very spot where I am standing. But first, let’s talk about something FREE and fantastic! Every month, I swing by the American Bazaar store to pick up their FREE group gift. This month they have offered the James Jacket in Electric Blue along with the James Shirt in Black. Each piece comes in five sizes for versatility, but they are meant to be worn together so there is a single alpha accommodating both the jacket and shirt. The color is dark and dramatic, just like me! When I dress for my own pleasure, this is absolutely the kind of item I am drawn to: dressy, yet still very casual and comfortable looking. American Bazaar did a great job with this garment. Plus, the group is FREE to join, so make sure you run out and pick this up.

All of us have very different reasons to be on SL, and what we choose to do here can be vastly different from avy to avy. I am an avid freebie hunter, blogger, and general goof off, but Second Life offers us many different activities to do and enjoy. One that I personally like to do is go to concerts and listen to live performers like my friends Phideaux Mayo and Maximillion Kleene. I truly admire the talent and courage it takes to get up in front of people and perform. When you are looking for an interesting activity, I encourage you to search in “events” and sample some of the live entertainment SL has to offer, which brings me to where I am now standing. This is the ENT SL RADIO TRANSPORT HUB and is an excellent place to pop by when you are looking for entertainment. ENT SL Radio is kind of like RL public broadcasting: it offers eighty hours of FREE programming a week! You can even listen to it outside of Second Life by visiting their web site. At the hub, you will find many kiosks, each if which represents a club that is partnering with ENT to help broadcast and promote live music to the SL community. Walk around and check out the schedules. You can even teleport directly to your club of choice from the bus stop. It is a fun and FREE way to explore music and clubs that you might not have experienced yet. I highly recommend you add it to your list of places to check out.

8415 madcat 3_001

Now that you have a great place to go, to choose whichever live performer you may fancy, how about something else you could wear? It is my pleasure to let you know about another item from Madcat Creations that is definitely worthy of your attention. Madcat Creations got my attention in late April by making an amazing hippie outfit that I blogged here. Now they are offering a 1L hunt prize from the Romance Under The Stars Hunt, the Leather N Lace in Red Dress Shirt and Jacket combo looks great with its vibrant color, in addition to giving me my recommended daily dose of black clothing. Together with the white tee part of this garment, the three components in the mesh look extremely well layered giving the appearance of being separate items. This is a fantastic piece of mesh! It comes in three sizes, each of them being similar to fitmesh in that they will conform to your avy. I got an excellent fit without any fuss at all. The red is quite eye catching. After all, do you really want to spend your time blending into the background? Reach for some color now and then and spice up your Second Life, and this garment is an excellent start.

That is all for now. I am going to wander about and find a good concert to check out. However you choose to spend your Second Life, I wish you the best and look forward to running into you one day. Until then, have fun and 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

A Little Attitude From The For Him Hunt.

whc hunt 527 2
Happy Wednesday, everyone! I just got back from the For Him Hunt and I have some things to share with you. The hunt object in this case is a black wrench and each one costs 1L. This first item I found is this fantastic exercise outfit from Barefoot Apparel. It looks so great, I had to join a gym so I could show it off! Don’t get me wrong, I do exercise. Here at Fab Free, when Love and Pru take the others out to lunch, and I am here all alone, I put on my “Chair Dancing To The Oldies” DVD and get a fine workout. I don’t know if I am getting any thinner, but I am a much better lap dancer now for sure! (I hope we don’t have any security cameras here.) This For Him Hunt gift is called the Beach Runner Outfit and would look just as great on a morning run by the ocean as it does in the gym. The hoodie is Mesh, and the shorts and bathing suit (also included with the outfit) are on system layers in both wet and dry variations. Since the shorts are not Mesh they will fit under your Mesh hoodies and T-Shirts very nicely. Until now, I had yet to see a workout outfit on my avi that I thought looked “sexy”. I am truly impressed with this gift from Barefoot Apparel.

whc hunt 527 1
Also on the For Him Hunt is the Enoch Shirt in Royale from Vengeful Threads. It has a great, laid back Goth feel, and looks dead sexy on us guys. What I like most about it is the simple, masculine shape of the shirt (no lace, ruffles or excessive folds). With the crosses on the texture beckoning the eye, simplicity in shape was a great decision which results in a garment that I believe is special. I didn’t have to look too far to find really great items to accompany it either. I am also wearing the Gothic Link Bracelet and the Gothic Silver Skull Rings from Exquisite Jewelry. Together for only 1L on the For Him Hunt, they comprise a great gift, especially if you enjoy a gothic style. You can’t tell in my pic, but the Silver Skull Rings look like they could deal some very heavy damage in a fight. I certainly wouldn’t want to be hit with them. These black jeans are part of the Urban Conrad outfit from Pekas. They come with a sweater as well (not pictured) and are another good prize from this hunt. The Conrad Jeans are Mesh and are provided in four sizes, they were just perfect to round out that gothic look I was looking for.

Time is running short tonight, but before I leave you I have to mention the For Him Hunt prize from Felon: the Addiction Long-sleeve T-Shirt. It is a graphic T-Shirt with classic motorcycle/tough guy styling. Worn and old looking, if you look closely it says “Live fast, die last.” You gotta love clothing with attitude, and if anything, that’s what this week’s bargains from the For Him Hunt are all about. Whether it’s the biker attitude, or the gothic attitude, or even the sexy gym rat attitude, this hunt brought the attitude right to us, and did so for very little money. Have fun, and give hunting a try if you haven’t already, it can be highly rewarding. Til next time, see you on the grid! —–WHC Riler

What Goes Around, Comes Around!

whc lyrcoldash pic

I never intended it to happen, but do you have an article of clothing that you rely on as a “go to” item, one that absolutely refuses to age? I do! And, later in this post, we are going to celebrate its one-year anniversary in my wardrobe. First though, check out what I found last night! I went by a store named Cold Ash, which specializes in fantastically detailed, rugged-looking men’s clothing. I found this vintage style T-shirt as their FREE Group Gift! The Mesh Austin Tee in STEEL BLUE is a fine representation of the quality that goes into the clothing that Cold Ash makes. Anyone who knows me knows I am a sucker for T-Shirts that look soft and well-worn, and this ribbed cotton T-shirt hangs beautifully with soft, realistic folds. It’s like it was never meant to be taken off. In the FREE Group Gift, you get 3 sizes and an additional 2 sizes in fitmesh, so getting a good fit won’t be any problem. Stop by Cold Ash, this is a must pick up! The pants I chose to wear with it are the current FREE Group Gift from Lavarock, likely my favorite male clothing store on Second Life. They are the Destroy Male Jeans and are probably one of the grungiest items in my wardrobe. I love the texture on them. Honestly, if I ever move to Seattle to pursue my dreams of alt-rock super stardom, these are the jeans I am going to wear! They come in 2 styles, with five sizes of each included in the gift. The only problem is they have been out for quite a while, and at the moment I am unable to say how much longer they will remain available. If you like them in the picture, go get them immediately. I suspect they may not be available much longer. The last item in the Cold Ash inspired outfit is the cap, which was just one of those lucky finds you sometimes run across accidentally. It is a 1L hunt prize from a hunt which is sadly already over. Luckily, the owner of Ashmoot forgot to pick up the hunt prize! It’s only 1L and the cap matches the T-shirt wonderfully. Sadly I can’t recall the name of the hunt, but you are looking for a hunt object shaped like a mask called “P-H Hunt # 8”. Look for it where you find the daily prize boards. Kristabel Ashmoot promises me she will leave it out until the end of the month so we all have a chance to grab it (a VERY sweet thing to do for us). Be sure to pick it up before it’s too late!

I teased you that as I write this I am celebrating an anniversary of sorts, and I have Lyrieal’s Boutique to thank for it. I recently attended “Just For Him”, a cart sale like event with a 1L mini-hunt where I found this great leather jacket! It comes from Lyrieal’s Boutique and is their Just For Him Hunt Prize. It has a hud that allows you to choose 5 different colors in both the leather and the lining. For a single linden, that’s great value. The event is not a large one, but I should have known Lyrieal’s Boutique would have something special out. This brings me to the anniversary: I was dying to show you this jacket and was having trouble finding just the right pants to present it with, so I decided to go with my “go to” grey system jeans and Mesh boots, tinting the jeans a bit darker to match. After doing the picture, I began putting together this post, and found I had reason to smile. Those beloved jeans and boots of mine are from a hunt one year ago today…and were previously blogged here by a young guest blogger. Coincidentally, they also came from Lyrieal’s Boutique! So, to celebrate the one-year anniversary of their posting in Fab Free, the In The Pink outfit has been added to the 1L hunt prize, making it even better. It is a great looking outfit and the jeans are tintable to match a wide range of grays, so they are super handy to have around. Even the boots are nice, you can’t beat this value. I had originally planned to end my post here, and call it a night, but once I get going I am hard to stop. So in the spirit of “You really should check out the Just For Him sales event”, here is a final addition to my post below!

whc cold ash beach 1_001

While I was at the sale, I noticed a pair of shorts on the back wall of the booth belonging to the store Trashed. Just like the other coincidences this week (the hat which looked great with the T-shirt that was accidentally left out, and the nice jeans I decided to wear being posted to fab free exactly one year ago today) these denim shorts look like they were made to go with the Cold Ash T-Shirt I picked up this week. The Trashed Men’s denim shorts in plaid are not free, but this is a sale event as well as a hunt and these shorts look really great. If you love that T-shirt as much as I do, that is reason enough to pony up the extra 85L for these shorts to go with them. They make a fantastic pair together. Once again, I have worked late into the evening and I must go, but this has been a post full of pleasant surprises. Until next time my friends, see you on the grid. —–WHC Riler

From Farmboy To Pop Icon!

WHC Farmboy 1

Greetings from the Riler family farm, where we grow all kinds of healthy food that I won’t eat. I remember once when I was a young pup and Mom asked me “Why won’t you eat fruits and vegetables? There has to be something that we can grow that you’ll eat.” Mom stared at me in complete exasperation. That was the day I learned parrots do not grow on trees. Also, I am told if they did, parrot trees would not grow in the Midwest. I have learned a lot about farming since then, most of it from countless hours of playing FarmVille on Facebook.

The most important lesson I learned about farming is: Do not dress like you have just fallen off the turnip truck. (Wait, if you actually did just fall off the turnip truck, you probably are a farmer anyway, so dressing like that is good, too.) My point is, you are going to want to dress the part and the FREE Gingham Hunt Prize from Firelight Creations/MAN STUFF is perfect for that handsome farmhand look. The prize consists of the Leroy mesh shirt in red gingham and the Cole jeans in light blue denim. The shirt is very nicely shaped and, together with the mesh Cole jeans, which I also consider a keeper, this is a very masculine look. MAN STUFF is the division of Firelight Creations we have to thank for this FREE hunt gift, but included in the same box is a matching women’s outfit from Firelight Creations. This hunt prize would be a very good start for a “Country” kind of outfit for club events and sims, in addition to being nice enough for your regular wardrobe. I may not be the kind of guy suited for farm work, but in this outfit, I could do commercials for brand name soda pop on TV. I could easily imagine myself drinking an ice cold can of pop, condensation dripping down my muscular chest, as my female co-workers in the office break room gawk in silent appreciation. Casual Friday – here I come! Kidding aside, this outfit looks great, and I could seriously sell a ton of pop in this.

For a more suburban look, I love this FREE thank you gift from Carami! It is the Trenton Tee and it comes in a set of five solid dark colors, changeable via hud. This is far more than just a basic mesh T-shirt, this FREE Gift is much more generous than that. The Trenton Tee comes in four variations; tucked, untucked, normal bottom untucked, and narrow bottom untucked. With choices like that, getting a great fit and the right look should not be hard at all. One last reason you need to pick up this FREE gift from Carami: It comes with a sixth bonus texture that isn’t on the hud. That bonus texture is the one I am wearing above, a very casual retro looking print T-shirt. Just take care to make a backup copy of the print tee, because once you change it using the hud, it is replaced with the color you have chosen. In short, Carami is giving you a great basic dark T-shirt in five colors and four variations plus a bonus printed T-shirt design! You can’t beat this kind of a thank you gift, thank you very much Carami.

One last thing I need to mention this week, the skin I am wearing is from Seven Deadly Skins. It is the free group gift for May and looks fantastic, I like it so much you will probably be seeing me in it often in the coming weeks. Seven Deadly Skins is a pay group, but the quality of their skins is excellent and the gifts and specials they have make it well worth joining. As of this moment the group is currently on sale for 50L and is a great pick up for both male and female avies. Well, I am all talked out. This blogging is nearly as hard as cartoon farming (but twice as rewarding). Until next time everyone, have fun and see you on the grid. —–WHC Riler
