Red-Nosed Replacement

Red-Nosed Replacement

If Rudolph ever goes missing, I am more than ready to take his place!  I’ve got my warm(ish) clothing, my fashionable hair (did Rudolph have that – I think not!) and of course, my antlers and red nose!  I would be able to light the night and lead those reindeer without faltering, while still looking absolutely fabulous!

Want to join in on my reindeer romp?  You too can look as adorable as little old moi, and all for free!

Snuggle Up

To keep warm on the round the world trek to deliver gifts to good boys and girls, one always requires a warm sweater.  I found just the thing at the Paying it Forward event.  This milky-white sweater will keep out the North Wind like nobody’s business.  And you know, it also works for cozying up on a cold winter’s night by the fireplace.  You can grab this sweater for free by joining the Paying it Forward group (it is also free to join).  There are also loads of other gifts at the event (Love posted about another cute one HERE).

Sizes

  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Maitreya

Dashing to the Salon

I of course need a matching ‘do for my celestial escapades as the replacement Rudolph, and I picked this one by Limerence up at the Paying it Forward event as well, completely free.  It comes with a pastel and fades HUD for all your styling needs.  There is also an add-on for wispy bangs in the front.  Rudolph wishes he looked this cute!

The Finishing Touch

I could never be considered for Rudolph’s job without the red nose.  Luckily, Mad Pea has put out a free gift as well, and it looks absolutely fetching, I think.  The antlers are the crowning glory of my outfit, I’d say!

Hop on over to Paying it Forward and grab your gifts, so you too can help out Santa if he’s ever in need.

The early morning grab & go…

She told me it was going to be a busy day and not expect to hear much from her today… What I didn’t expect was for her to rush out the door with MY keys and phone in hand! Oh well, I’ll make do. I only have a few errands to run so I’ll drag her purple 10 speed out of the man cave (yeah, she stores her stuff in there also) and take her pink phone just in case she realizes her error and wants to swap.

Go hard or go home….

Today’s outfit is part of what you’ll find on the Men’s Only Hunt 9. I picked up the Baseball Shirt at Razor and a seemingly flawless match of a Go Hard Baseball Cap at 7 Mad Ravens.  I accessorized with more gifts from the hunt with a Hipsta Watch from PBM Enterprises and the Caravalli Glasses I found at Mulloy. I also switched up my fuzzy face today with the hunt gift from Nivaro  with the Tribal Stuble 1 beard applier.

Hipster Style…

My set is also a prize to be found on the Men’s Only Hunt 9. Find the hunt item at Come Soon Poses and the Hipster Style Scene can be yours. The set comes with the bike, the phone and the pose. Be warned, this thing is large, so make sure you have plenty of room to rez it. (it swallowed the house).

Ah, there is is calling, realizing what she did and apologizing. Don’t worry, babe… I’m on my way home…

Beautiful Free

Love BDR

Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! Welcome back. I’m not going to kid you, there are days when I seriously want to wear my hair like this, just in my face. Sometimes I think I might pull it off too. This sassy hairstyle by Love Hair is a FREE Lucky Board prize at the Sanarae event. You’ll need to join the Sanarae group to participate in the Lucky Boards, but don’t fret, the group is FREE to join. This LB prize includes the hairstyle shown in the ombre color shown as well as a blonde to bright red ombre color, not shown.

This cool casual one-piece is a FREE “tester” outfit available at Beautiful Dirty Rich. It is a wearable demo that allows you to test out the colors of the clothing at Beautiful Dirty Rich. They’ve begun a new “mix and match” system allowing customers to mix and match the colors of some of the newer outfits. This tester outfit gives everyone the ability to really see how the wide range of colors look once worn. I think this idea is really fantastic, and the outfit is really cute too! This FREE wearable demo comes with a fat pack of appliers in every color available. It also includes classic system layers in every color. The colors shown are white, grey, black, jet black, and red. There are so many ways I think this one-piece is truly wearable. I like it as-is, but it could easily be worn with a skirt or under some cute running shorts for an athletic look. There’s no need to join a group, just buy the Mix & Match Tester outfit located in the New Releases section of the Beautiful Dirty Rich store.

Lastly, the five static poses are not only a great way for me to show you some of the colors available with the tester outfit at BDR, they are great poses; especially when you consider they are just one linden. This pose pack from Exposeur is listed as their February 2016 group gift on the Marketplace and can be purchased for just one linden. The set includes all 5 static poses shown, and a mirrored version of each pose for a total of 10 poses.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

On The Hunt Once Again!

whc moh razor3_001

Hello, everyone. Welcome to my favorite time of the year in Second Life (which is any time a major men’s clothing hunt is going on). Everyone knows I have been waiting for this hunt for weeks and I am happy to say it has been a highly enjoyable event, providing some excellent quality items. Before describing the items in the above picture, I would like you to click on it. That will bring you to my flickr. Then, click once more to see the picture in its’ original resolution. The reason I invite you to do this is because the more detailed picture, the more impressed you will be with the items’ quality.

The first item I want to show you from The Men’s Only Hunt is the tattoo I am wearing. Honestly, it is the best, most comprehensive FREE gift tattoo I have ever seen. The level of detail in this tattoo is simply unbelievable! Take a close look at the About That Life Tattoo & Sleeves from Inhale and you will probably understand why I am so excited. While the level of detail packed in this tat makes it an excellent hunt gift, there is something else that makes it a must-have hunt item. In addition to being wearable for regular basic avies, it also contains appliers for Omega, Signature and TMP Mesh avies! Inhale has even included a Slink hands version! This is a fantastic tattoo and, if you later decide to go with a Mesh avatar, it is highly likely you will still be able to wear it. The Men’s Only Hunt is a FREE hunt and will be going on until September 13th. Look for the cool, frothy beer hunt object to find your gift. Don’t miss out on this tat!

This is the first time I am posting this style of sweatpants. While undoubtedly popular, they aren’t my usual style in real life. Until now, I have never gotten one in a hunt that was so excellent that I literally HAD to post them! Take a look at these Blue Mack Sweats, the FREE Men’s Only Hunt prize from Razor. I am a long-time fan of their high quality, edgy style of street wear. When I unpacked these sweatpants, I was blown away with their first-rate quality. The material looks soft, and the mesh design looks highly realistic, right down to having a great amount of pocket space. Combine that with the brilliant blue and black colors of the sweatpants and you have another must pickup from The Men’s Only Hunt. I know many Fab Free readers will be interested to learn that this gift includes a FEMALE VERSION in addition to the male one. It isn’t every day I get to catch the ladies’ attention, so thank you very much Razor!

A friend of mine who helped me on the hunt was looking for a cool pair of sunglasses. The Farewell Summer Glasses from 7Mad;Ravens fit the bill perfectly. Dark and stylish, this FREE Men’s Only Hunt gift has a very subtle touch of color across the top of the frame, and WOW, do I love that touch! These glasses look superb and are another item from the above pic that will impress you more the closer you look.

I couldn’t resist going all out for the pic, so I included the FREE Men’s Only Hunt gift from Legal Insanity for a touch of street cred. The Biker Necklace is a tough-looking heavy pair of gold chains. Often gold jewelry on SL can look unrealistic, but this necklace does not suffer from the common mistake of being overly yellow and bright. I was truly impressed with the looks of this pixel treasure from the fine folks at Legal Insanity and I hope you will enjoy it too.

The final item to highlight in the above picture is my new bracelet. A FREE Men’s Only Hunt gift from Apple May Designs, the Men’s Forged Cuffs look fantastic. The texture gives it a hammered by hand look, making it appear to be a piece of finely crafted jewelry. My picture does not even showcase the entire gift. Although I show it on my right wrist alone, the hunt prize actually includes both right and left wrist versions. Both come in two colors: chocolate bronze and steel finish. It is a highly versatile hunt gift, and yet another reason you should be doing the Men’s Only Hunt this month!

whc laundry day 1_001

I usually wear the same type of clothing in Second Life that I would wear in real life, simple like soft cotton T-Shirts and jeans, or something smart and dressy looking. A perfect example of my kind of T-Shirt is this wonderfully textured Dexter Mesh Tee from Sharp By [ZD]. Emblazoned with the words “Laundry Today OR naked tomorrow,” I even feel as if it fits into my rl lifestyle. I am naked a lot of the time, but I am not actually a naturist. I am just too lazy to do laundry very often. For all the guys out there that totally understand where I am coming from, this T-Shirt is for you. It comes in three Mesh sizes and two FitMesh ones, and is actually pre-stained to give it that authentic laundry day apparel look! Like the other items from the Men’s Only Hunt this month, it is FREE for the taking.

Lately, I have been posting a surprising amount of hair. Usually, male hair is a very tough find for free or even extremely inexpensive. It is one of the main challenges as far as building a new male avy for a reasonable price. I don’t know why we have been blessed with such a wide variety of good free hair lately, but I am quite happy about it. My wash day hair is the new FREE Men’s Only Hunt gift from Ayashi. Their Toma hair in black was perfect for this pic, just the right mix of spiky and unkempt for the Laundromat. Remember, for this and all the other items on the Men’s Only Hunt, the hunt object you are looking for is a cool, frothy beer.

Finally, I couldn’t hit the “send” button on this post without mentioning the pose I used for the wash day picture. It is one of three poses included in the FREE Men’s Only Hunt gift from Verocity! It looks excellent and is a pose I will undoubtedly use many more times over the years to show off men’s garments.

Hopefully, that’s enough to tempt you to discover the joys of hunting in Second Life. With patience, it can be highly rewarding. Stay tuned for next week’s continued coverage of The Men’s Only Hunt where I will try to tempt you into hunting by sharing more of the rich treasures to be had for FREE! Until then my friends, see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler

A Little More Eloquence

Hello FabFree readers! I hope you are having a great week so far and have been enjoying reading the blog! As you may remember, earlier I spoke a little about the Grand Opening event for Eloquence  which is a newevent blog that has started. To celebrate they have a whole area that is filled with with lots of great free group gifts from great designers for everyone to enjoy. Here are some more of the great gifts you can find there!

There is an adorable dress by Tutti Frutti that is the most brilliant shade of blue I have ever seen in my life!  The contrasting green stitching makes it really interesting. I wanted to play up the cuteness of this dress so I paired it with the Dethburn Kicks by Razor. These come with a colour change HUD which allows alot of options where you can change each shoe individually, aswell as the upper and sole part. To continue with the cute theme, and because I like to add a little bit of colour clash to my outfits, I added the puffy crown hair accessory by Ariskea!

Untitled

Also available as gifts at the event is this really pretty skin by Style By Kira. I love the lips on this skin! They are so well defined and the little bubble nose is just adorable. The little Sakura bindi worn is also a freebie there by AMAYA!

Finally there are two really gorgeous nails for SLink hands by Figure available as free gifts at the event. Below are the HUD’s so you can see the different options available.

Gimme One More Hot Espresso

Hello readers, its me Mr0mizu! Im supposed to be meeting Tiana here at the coffee shop but it seems she’s running a bit late, so I thought I would hijack the post to show you a couple of things I found today.. hey, she gets enough of her own posts!

The shirt I am wearing is the August group gift for guys from Lineal Rise Designs. The group is L$10 to join but they do have gifts on a regular basis! The Trekka Vest is not part of the deal, but can be found at Razor if you are looking for something to help keep you warm now the colder nights are drawing in. My jeans are the Essence Jeans in Dust by Olen that I found on the Marketplace! These are a steal at only L$10 and there are other colours to choose from.

We’ll Be Raising Our Hands, Shining Up To The Sky

Its still the music festival time of year over here in the UK, so here I am out camping with Mr0mizu, getting in the mood for the weekend ahead! Right now we are only in our back garden.. and I much prefer that to a crowded campsite!

Mr0mizu is looking rather fine in his festival wear thanks to some great items from The Blues Hunt. His sweater is the hunt prize from Razor and he has his casual sandals for his SLink Feet courtesy of The Body Factory! He doesn’t usually like accessorizing but he finally found a necklace he liked thanks to the Ammunition Necklace by AITUI! He’s even grown a huge beard for the event! Im going to have to find some flowers to decorate that with later ~laughs~

He doesn’t look too amused with me trying for a piggy back huh! You can find this freebie pose called King and Queen at Diesel Works! It comes with a crown to wear too, but I didnt want to push my luck too far ~giggles~

I love my Heart Shaped glasses and if you love them too, you can find them as a freebie from Snatch at the District 5 event that began a few days ago. You can also pick up the free gift of a fatpack of Athytia Dresses by Somnia at the same event! The Cecily Necklace is just adorable and is by C’est La Vie as their new free group gift. It comes in a pack of several colours so you can match it to almost everything! Don’t you just love my rainbow boots! They are perfect festival wear and whats great is they are free on the marketplace as a wearable demo by ALB Dream Fashion!

How about this hair though huh? Its so amazing that I had to show you it!  It is made by Olive and you can get it from the Olive You Fundraiser which is an event to help the owner of Olive raise funds to save her home! I always love how SL really shows its community spirit when things like this happen. There are some amazing stores taking part, so be sure to come and take a peek. You’ll be buying some great things and helping a good cause in the process.

And lastly my skin is the Delphine Bare skin in tone 3 by Lumae and is their item for Lazy Sunday.. now I know Sunday was yesterday but the skin is still out so rush over to get it as quick as you can! It is available in 8 tones for a bargain L$75 each! He had to get in on that picture.. he’s just so proud of his beard! And I see some daisies over there with his name on them….

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – The Riches of the Silk Road

Another fabulous guest blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone, originally blogged [HERE]
Greetings from the Orient, all you deal-seekers.  The Silk Road Hunt (hunt website here) organized by Historical Hunts is running until June 30, and has some fabulous gifts that are completely free.  There are 102 stops on this hunt, each one having a male and female or a unisex free gift. The theme this year is “Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves”, so you will find the gifts focusing on the Middle East and Arabia. No blog post can do justice to the many beautiful things you can find traveling the Silk Road this year, but let me give you a taste of what you will find.

This hunt is features many buildings, furniture and other decor items, but there are also a few clothing items.  First off let me show you a combination of two clothing gifts.  The Ali Baba headdress, vest, sword, and leather wrist cuffs in this picture come from Goddess Fantasies (#05 SRH5), while the pants and belt are the gift at Rag Dollz (#032 SRH5).  There are some pretty nice women’s clothing gifts at both of these stores too.

Image

 

Shown above:

Headress, vest, sword, wrist cuffs:  Goddess Fantasies – Ali Baba (#05 Silk Road Hunt 5 gift/free)

Pants, belt:  Rag Dollz – Thieves Quest (#032 SSRH5 gift/free)


Now let me pan back my camera a bit and show you the gorgeous building I’m standing in front of.  It’s the Ali Baba Tower, the Silk Road Hunt gift from Salome Designs (#09 SRH5).  It’s a gorgeous two story hexagonal Arabian-style building with a hanging fire pot and a balcony walkway around the second story inside.  And remember – it’s absolutely free!

Image

You can furnish your building with the room divider with plants, a chair and table from Hearth & Home (#012 SRH5) shown on the left below, or with the burl tables, dressing screen and plant stand, all gifts from An Lema (#018 SRH5) shown on the right.

Image

Shown above:

Ali Baba Tower: Salome Designs (#09 SRH5 gift/free)

Room Divider with plants, chair, table: Hearth & Home  (#012 SRH5 gift/free)

Secret of the Thieves Burl tables, Thieves Dressing Screen, Riches of Persia Plant Stand: An Lema (#018 SRH5 gift/free)


Another of the buildings available as gifts on the Silk Road Hunt is the  Arabian Temple found at Dragon Magick Wares (#020 SRH5).  It has lovely carved wood windows and the interior textures are amazing.

Image

You can see more of the interior of this building here because I’ve furnished it with the Scroll Floor Lamp, the gift from Kismet (#035 SRH5) and the Thieves Rest Bench, floor pillows, lamp, plant from Dreamscape Wedding Designs (#051 SRH5) in the top picture, and Salman’s Rug 4two from Sweet Sorrows (#041 SRH5).  This is mighty sweet decor whether your furnishing a Middle Eastern building or just a beachside house.

Shown above:

Arabian Temple: Dragon Magick Wares (#020 SRH5 gift/free)

Scroll Floor Lamp (3 sizes including table):  Kismet (#035 SRH5 gift/free)

Thieves Rest Bench, floor pillows, lamp, plant:  Dreamscape Wedding Designs (#051 SRH5 gift/free)

Salman’s Rug 4two (M/F/Cuddles):  Sweet Sorrows (#041 SRH5 gift/free)


 

There are quite a few fun gifts on this hunt as well.  Two of my favorites are the Relaxing Magic Carpet made by Potpourri Designs (#039 SRH5) and the Hide n’ Peek Jars, the hunt gift at Sheds n Shacks (#079 SRH5).  It may not be clear from the picture below, but the Relaxing Magic Carpet hovers up and down (but doesn’t actually fly and can’t be steered).  The Hide n’ Peek Jars allow three people to hide in or between the various jars in the set.  Very handy if you are one of the 40 thieves.

Image

Shown above:

Relaxing Magic Carpet (it hovers):  Potpourri Designs (#039 SRH5 gift/free)

Hide n’ Peek Jars (seats 3):  Sheds n Shacks (#079 SRH5 gift/free)


If all you want for your desert oasis is some water and an elegant spot to rest, you can’t beat the tile oasis with water pool from Pierre Ceriano (#022 SRH5).  After refreshing yourself at the pool, you can rest on the cushions that surround this lovely low table from Park Place Home Decor (#027 SRH5).  The cushions and table come with the plate and table lamp shown in the picture.

Image

Shown above:

Tile Oasis:  Pierre Ceriano (#022 SRH5 gift/free)

Low table with cushions, plate, lamp:  Park Place Home Decor (#027 SRH5 gift/free)


And for the more nomadically-minded you can find the blue and gold satin tent on the left in the picture below at Botanica (#093 SRH5), and the elaborate furnished tent with pillows on the right at ~XM~ Designs (#30 SRH5). Both come with elegant working lanterns.

Image

Shown above:

On the left: Blue gypsy tent – Botanica (#093 SRH5 gift/free)

On the left: Arabian tent – ~XM~ Designs (#30 SRH5 gift/free)


Finally, so that you don’t think there are just two men’s clothing gifts on the Silk Road Hunt, I must show you several of the many, many gifts available at stop #085, the Mountain Rose Shops.  This single stop on the main hunt offers a “mini hunt” among the several stores at that location, and you can pick up a total of nineteen prizes there.  Some are furnishings and buildings, and others are clothing.  Each of the clothing gifts includes men’s, boy’s, ladies, girls, and child versions.  As you’ll see from my pictures, the Mountain Rose Shops did not just limit themselves to an Arabian theme, but rather created clothing gifts from across the entire Silk Road route.  In several of these pictures I am wearing the red Ali shoes, the men’s hunt gift from Lindy Modern Shoes (#082).  But here are the clothing gifts from the Mountain Rose Shops:

Image

Shown above (all prizes from the mini-hunt at the Mountain Rose Shops):

#1  Arab Prince:  Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

#2  Beggar:  Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

#3:  Indian Prince – Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

#4:  Mongolian Prince (with boots) – Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

#5:  Venetian Nobleman – Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

Shoes: Ali Red – Lindy Modern Shoes (#082 SRH5 gift/free)


Geoffrey is also wearing:

Skin:  Belleza – Shawn Deep Tan (group gift/$350L to join)

Eyes:  [dirty.little.secret] Black eyes (former group gift)

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – The Men Only Hunt

A Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – The Men Only Hunt, originally blogged [HERE]

The 4th edition of Men Only Hunt is running through 7AM on June 15 with 58 stores offering completely free prizes if you can find the hidden beer glass hunt object.  A list of participating stores, their SLURLs and hints can be found at the hunt website.  The theme this time is “Summer” and hunters will find plenty of casual clothing, accessories, shoes and tattoos.  There’s not room here to show you all of the MOH4 hunt prizes, but I can show you plenty of examples of the kinds of things you’ll find along the way.

First off, quite a number of the participating stores are offering tattoos.  While all of these tattoo prizes come in tattoo layer form, several also come in clothing layer versions, and an increasing number of them also have SLINK mesh hand appliers as well.  That’s right — the mesh hand/foot craze is starting to hit male fashion too, which means that fashion-conscious men will soon have to start worrying about whether they have the correct hands and feet on when they go out in public.  Obviously I’m still wearing the hands and feet the Linden gods gave me at birth.

Image(Note: Hair in these pictures is Lucifer by A&A Hair and is not included in the hunt)

top row:  Clemm (MOH4 # 49), Tabou Irresistible (MOH4 # 10), Reckless (MOH4 # 19), -Dappa- (MOH4 # 45) and Pekka body piercings (MOH4 # 53)

bottom row:  Sourires (MOH4 # 26), Zentro Body (MOH4 # 32), Speakeasy Tatoo (MOH4 # 38), Taox Tatoo (MOH4 # 42)


In keeping with the summertime theme, several of the MOH4 participating stores are giving glasses and sunglasses as prizes.  Here are the seven I found.

Pretty much all of the clothing prizes in the MOH4 hunt are casual.  Most prizes are shirts or shorts, allowing you to mix and match tops and bottoms to suit your mood, while a few stores are offering complete outfits. I went down to Bondi Beach in the Sydney City region to take some pictures of the outfits I put together from the various shirts and shorts I found in the hunt.

The lowdown on where to find the parts of these outfits is as follows.

Outfit 1: Low Waist Shirt (with 6 color HUD) by [GIOMEN] – MOH#55;  Sum shorts by .ARISE. – MOH#46; Men’s FlipFlops – American Bazaar – MOH#01

Outfit 2:  Summer Flip Flops by Aitui – MOH#16; Anchor Tee V.1 by {Fe Style} – MOH#18; Sum shorts by .ARISE. – MOH#46

Outfit 3:  Saturday Shorts (black) by [tomboi] – MOH#33; Check Summer Shirt by REBELL – MOH#24; Supra Kicks by Razor/// – MOH#27


If you’re looking for a full summer outfit, you’ll find these three lurking among the MOH4 hunt prizes.

The particulars on these full outfits are:

Outfit 4:  Tommy outfit by zanze – MOH#15; Denim Slipons by Anchor & Co. – MOH#7

Outfit 5:  Top, pants & shoes (Marcario) by Shey – MOH#17

Outfit 6:  Donned (Shirt, tie & pants) by SwaggedOut – MOH#54; Zanotti sneakers by Sabotage – MOH#56


Well, after a hard day of hunting I decided to put on two more hunt gifts, a hunt prize shape by Surrogates and another hunt prize skin by T.Bare and catch some rays.  The swim trunks in this picture are not a hunt prize but is one of a set of six James Bond swimsuits by sf Designs.

Shape:  Clint by Surrogates – MOH#44

Skin: Apollon Deep Tan-Eyebrow Cut by T.Bare – MOH#21

Swimsuit:  James Bond swimsuit by sf Designs (not free)

But if you’re going to get a tan, best to do it without getting a tan line.  Fortunately Grafica Poses (MOH#6) is giving out the bain de soleil pose complete with a wearable straw hat strategically positioned in just the right place.  Aaahhhhhh…..

Pink Fusion (Part 2) Not So Pink!

Okay so maybe pink is NOT your color, and that’s okay. Believe it or not, the Pink Fusion Hunt still holds some beautiful gifts for you! Some participating designers chose to stray from the color, and I for one think that it worked out pretty well. Pink is after all not just a color, it’s an attitude, a state of mind, perhaps even a state of being. Think Pink, but you don’t have to wear it. So that said, don’t forget, this $5 linden hunt ends at the end of this month. Here’s a look at some of the not-so-pink gifties!

Happy Hunting, and Enjoy!
