Good morning, Fabulous Readers. I have quit the find for the men of FabFree today. And it’s definitely in the spirit of the season. I felt rather festive when I agreed to meet friends at a local watering hole. But when I got there… something was off. And this skinny guy sitting next to me… very odd vibes…

At least my new Halloween outfit was appropriate for the evening. FKD has supplied a generous full pack of shirts and a pair of cobweb printed jeans. Everything fits perfectly and the details of the design are spot on. Perfect for a casual party or just seasonal wanders around the Grid. Since you can’t see the design in the picture, I’ve included a quick snapshot.

Just click the pumpkin at the front of the store sitting on the table advertising the “Pinky Pie Spooky Walk”. If you have a minute, the spooky walk is worth your time with several men’s outfits for a sale price of 25L. 

One note of caution. When you unpack the gift, the box is completely transparent. It took me a minute to figure out that I had a ‘ghost” box rather than a glitch.

Good Morning, Fabulously Free Readers. As you must know, today is Tuesday and that means that the 25L Tuesday sale is in effect. I do look forward to this sale because there is usually something there for the men. And today is no exception.

Munereia has supplied us with a stellar bargain today with their ‘Devon” set. You will receive both the shirt and the jeans for one 25L price tag. The shirt comes with twenty colors to choose from in both the plain color or the western pattern I’m wearing. Juli has a thing for cowboys, so one does what one must. The jeans also come with a HUD to pick one of fifteen colors in both a ripped up version and a plain.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature Gianni
  • SLink Male

Red Rain

Red Rain

~ I am standing up at the water’s edge in my dream
   I cannot make a single sound as you scream
   It can’t be that cold, the ground is still warm to touch
   Hey, we touch
   This place is so quiet, sensing that storm
 
   Red rain is coming down
                                                            ~ “Red Rain”  Peter Gabriel

Good evening, Fab Readers. I’m not going to chatter on too much this evening about this gift. I am grateful that Red Angel has given us a remembrance of a terrible day in American history. We need to remember and honor the people who were the victims of madness and the heroes who gave their lives trying to save them. What more is there to say.

Fall Blue

Fall Blues

Good afternoon, Fabulous Readers. We are getting to the time of year when warm is becoming as important as stylish. The days grow cooler and I fore see sweaters and fleece in my future. Happily, Mystrie has that in mind for todays outfit.

This is the “Autumn Walks” outfit and you can pick it up for just 1L and a little hunting at the main store. The hunt prize for the Changing of Colors Hunt comes with the blue fleece look top, a pair of pants with a fall print and the ‘blue suede shoes’. I chose to throw on a pair of well-worn jeans for my walk today proving that the outfit is rather versatile. As I often have to chase after Dixie when she takes off after a squirrel, I thought jeans were appropriate.

The Changing of Colors Hunt runs until Sept. 30th so don’t tarry too long.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Classic Fitmesh
  • Legacy
  • Signature Gianni
  • SLink Male

In the Twisted Shadows

In the Twisted Shadows

Good afternoon, Fabulous Readers. You may have heard Juli is feeling a bit under the weather so I have ever so graciously stepped in to post for us both today. because how could I not when we both look so “Twistedly” good?

Both Juli and I have been fighting our way through the Twisted Hunt this past week. For all the frustration, there are some truly excellent prizes for this round. Such as the full suit I am sporting today. This is the “Shadow Seeker” ensemble from Roped Passions. I had first thought the purple was too lavender but it is a good classic purple and the subtle pinstriping in the black fabric makes it just that more handsome. The suit is one piece but it does not include shoes.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Fitmesh Classic
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink Male

Julianna’s sleek gown is also from Roped Passions and is the ladies gift for the Twisted Hunt. (Each prize is separately boxed.) The “Shadow Seductress” gown is the same classic purple and black and has subtle silver lightning tracks across the bodice and skirt. Both of these outfits are wonderfully crafted and the details stand out. Roped Passions has an excellent selection of men’s and women’s items so be sure to take a look around while you Hunt.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

The Twisted Hunt runs until Sept 30th so time is catching up with us.

Don’t delay to cross “Beyond The Veil” soon.

Game Day

Game Day

Good afternoon, Fabulous Readers. As you read in Juli’s last post, she sent me over to the TWE12VE Event to pick up the free men’s gifts there. When I found these lounge pants and tee shirt from LooLoo & Platypus I knew they’d be perfect for relaxing around the house with a game. I have to admit… I’m a gamer. There’s little I enjoy more than an afternoon spend in Skyrim or the Fall Out wastelands. And these pajamas even come with a pack of “Gamer’s Clutter”. Then I saw that there was a matching set of ladies PJs and I had a feeling Juli was thinking the same thing I was: Game Day!! Time to show who’s the boss around here. 😉

Juli’s note: Oh, it’s on, Gamer Boi!

Good evening, Fab Readers. I hope all of you are having a wonderful beginning of September. Personally, I am looking forward to the coming Fall season and all it brings. September also brings a close to the Men only Hunt, I hope you found all the birds and their gifts. I’m still opening gifts and may well be doing so for quite a while. But we can’t forget that the latest round of gifts for the readers of the L’Homme magazine are still out and available. And, of course, a new month brings new Group gifts.

I stopped by Etham to pick up the latest gift just today. This comfortable sweat shirt fills the bill for these cooling days and nights. The “Matt Sweatshirt” also come with a HUD to choose one of twelve solid colors. It’s a welcome basic addition to any gentleman’s closet.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature – Geralt, Gianni
  • SLink Male
  • TMP

Turning to the L’Homme gifts from the bottom up. My striking new pants are from Bakaboo. This designer never fails to give really amazing gifts with real flair! The “Dual” pants are no exception. The HUD gives you five half-and-half designs, each one is eye popping amazing.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature Gianni

The chain necklace is also a L’Homme offering. The “Tyler Chain” from Opopop has just a little extra style than the basic men’s chain. But not so over the top to look odd with more casual outfits.

Lastly, I have a new set of stylish glasses. The “Slimglass Glasses” are from Since 1975 and are the L’Homme gift as well. They are both copy and modify so you can adjust them to your shape easily. The HUD comes with five choses of either wildly colored hardware and lenses or the more sedate simple black pair I’m wearing.

All of the L’Homme gifts are scheduled to remain on the floor until October so you do have plenty of time to collect them. You won’t be sorry you did.

On the Hunt

On the Hunt

Good evening, FabFree Readers. This is a good tie to be a ‘Man about The Grid’. There are plenty of hunts, Gachas and events going on right now to make one feel almost spoiled by choice.  In fact, the Men Only Hunt is so large this round that I’m still unpacking all of the gifts! While there are still quite a few items I personally don’t… appreciate… (Juli insists I be nice) I cast no judgment on the tastes of others. As Juli says, “You do you, boo.” Which is an eccentric way of saying this hunt has something for everyone. That said, my complete outfit including the new hair style is all 100% free and up for grabs on The Men Only Hunt.

First is the “Reed” cardigan and shirt set from Ascend. The thick comfortable sweater comes in the shown shades of blue but a HUD will give you six colors of shirts and ties to choose from. The shirt and tie themselves can be turned off if you prefer to wear just the cardigan. They, however are not wearable by themselves. 

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Legacy – Athletic, Legacy
  • Siganature – Gianni

The jeans are from Cheerno and are also a hunt gift. The ‘S21 Jeans’ are waiting for you to find. They are well made and are a solid addition to my wardrobe. 

Sizes Included

  • Aesthetic – Enzo
  • Belleza Jake
  • Legancy
  • Signature Gianni

Last but not least is my new hair style from Volt Hair. This is a New-to-Me designer that I am happy to have ‘discovered’. Volt does both men’s and ladies hair and has an extensive collection of both. I found the hair to be very well designed and easy to wear. The hair is unrigged and comes with a resizer. Plus, you will receive the entire fatpack in this prize.

A quick note on the Hunt. While you are not required to get the HUD with all of the SLurls loaded, I did find it makes the hunt much easier. There isn’t a page with the hints or the SLurls available online. You will need to join the Hunt’s group but that is free as well.  The pick up for the HUD is here.

Wasted beats

Wasted beats

Lions sit in solemn lines
Drinking gin and dropping lines

Wasting beats in this heart of mine
Until the morning comes around

~ “Sinners” by Barns Courtney

Good afternoon, FabFree readers. Today I am happy to wish the amazing L’Homme eMagazine a very happy 7th anniversary. If you haven’t become aware of this publication, I urge you to discover it. The photography is beyond compare and always inspires. If you want to keep up with the cutting edge men’s designers… this is the place for you.

Each issue includes new completely free gifts for the members of the free readers group. In fact, over the next few days, I will be showing a few of the best gifts here on our blog. The first and certainly one of the best gifts available is the “Theo Suit” from AsteroidBox. I can’t thank this designer enough for the spectacular gift. The suit is marvelously styled with a modern edge. The faint print of the skeleton bones on the fabric gives it an almost menacing look while being so sleek. Yes, I guess you can say I like this suit!

To join the L’Homme group simply click the sign above any of the gifts and join up for free. Then help yourself to an array of gifts fit for the discerning gentleman.

Pool Day

Pool Day

Hey FabCrew! My computer is now officially… “On the Work Bench”. With any luck my new screen will be here Friday or Saturday and I can get back to normal. But for now, thank heavens for a packrat husband who never throws anything out including old laptops.  It’s all a perfect reason to just stay here at the pool on the Grid.

I figured a hunt would help leave my worries behind so I grabbed Gabe and we popped over to Rea to hunt down these cool graphic swim suits, both named “Read Me”.. My bikini and his board shorts each come with a HUD to pick one of 6 black and white graphic patterns. The fit is perfect and the suits are a beautiful build. Both suits are part of the “Around the Grid in 80 Days Hunt” and will only set you back 1L for each.

With all that black and white, we need a dash of color now! Partners in Crime are supplying that with these super cute pool floats. The “Free Willy” whale floaties are the current free gift for all us Fabulously Free Group members! So you can add them to your pool or hot tube or lake or wherever just for being an awesome FabFree Member. Willy comes in all three colors you see here and each whale has 3 sits for male and female.  

So we are gonna kick back and drift around and soak up some sun without a care in the world. So go grab your suit and dive in!
