Happy Free Accessory Day Everyone!

whc unknown comic 2_001

I hope you had a memorable Valentine’s Day, however you chose to spend it. Today Fab Free is putting up freebie and cheapie accessories that deserve a moment in the spotlight. Hopefully, something we love will strike your fancy.

One of my favorite stores, Kauna is well known for high quality men’s clothing. So, it came as a shock to me when I found the Paper Bag Head in their marketplace store! For only 10L, it comes with 9 textures and a matching hand puppet! Relive your fleeting moments of fame as the unknown ventriloquist, and laugh yourself silly!

I am currently covering the great Menstuff hunt, and one of the coolest accessories is this free Celtic Necklace from Timeless Designs. Originally posted here, there isn’t a great deal more to say about it other than it is well made and would complement a wide variety of outfits. The silver beads and cross on the black cord are an extremely masculine look and for free, this is an excellent pick up.

whc 911 2_001

Swagga‘s marketplace store has several very interesting freebies, but my favorite was this highly-detailed ball cap. It was created as a free tribute to the bravery of the first responders of 9/11, and when I laid eyes on it, I was sure it had to be included in this post. First rate work, it is a nice memorial to an exceptional group of people.

Rebellion made the sunglasses in this pic, and a visit to their store will reveal this and four other quality free group gifts! Their system is a little different than most. Pick up the free group gifts you want, then before wearing them put on your Rebellion name tag. When you put the items on while wearing the group tag, the items will be enabled. It is easy to do and for items like these great sunglasses, worth it.

One last (but certainly not least) accessory from the Menstuff hunt I am thoroughly enjoying is the free Sergeant’s Bling Necklace from V-Spot. Simple and extremely masculine, this Menstuff Hunt prize is one that many of us are going to want to pick up. Items like these are great reminders that quality jewelry is not just made for women.

Ok, that is all I have to say at the moment I am off to hunt more bargains. Take care everyone and I will see you on the grid! (and also on Marketplace)—–WHC Riler

About Face!

whc half mask 4_001


I love masks. I pick up every one I can find, so you can imagine how much I love Halloween! Instead of a full costume this week, I want to share with you a pair of masks I picked up while hunting recently. First though, let’s take a look at what I am wearing above.

The Medieval Fantasy Hunt XIV is underway and, while I don’t have any actual medieval fantasies, it turns out that they are entirely optional! Acios gives us a unique hunt prize called The Inquisitor. It is a mesh outfit with the jacket, shirt, waistcoat and pants integrated into one great-looking garment. It comes packaged in five sizes to help with fitting and even includes shoes. The textures are elegant and this hunt item is available for FREE! I do have a few notes about The Inquisitor as I wear it in the picture. I added black socks from my inventory and increased the diameter of my neck and head slightly. It is not unusual for me to change my avy to get just the right fit. Also, the first time I wore the shoes, they appeared in my right hand. I am reaching out to the creator regarding the issue. Meanwhile, no worries! It is simple to correct: instead of choosing to “wear” them, select “attach” in the inventory menu and select “feet”. Then manually adjust them in the edit menu for a perfect fit. It was definitely worth picking up, and, In my oh-so-humble opinion, I think it makes me look fantastic!

Masks can be terrifying but they don’t have to be. They can be other things like mysterious and erotic, which brings me to the Masked Jester Half Mask from Trashed. The prize from the 1L Poppin’ Penguin Hunt Circus Edition, it comes together with a colorful jester’s hat and would be handy in putting together a costume like that. When I saw it though, visions of dark masquerade balls came to mind. It has a curvy, sensuous flow to the mesh and the half covered face is a highly eye catching look. It is black for a very masculine look and is resizeable to help get a great fit. However you decide you can use it, this is a very unique mask and definitely deserves some attention.

whc madman 6_001


What would Halloween be without the other kind of mask? Representing the terrifying mask genre, here is one that might give you nightmares just looking at it. The Stitched Mask from Swagga has a delightful hand-stitched-from-human-skin kind of look, just perfect for today’s madman on the go! It goes with many different outfits, although I prefer the rural-maniac-who-lives-in-a-shack look. Its handcrafted, timeless style will never go out of fashion. Kidding aside, this is one nightmare-inducing Mesh mask and it is available for FREE! Celebrating the The Seasons Story Second Anniversary shopping event, it is a wonderful piece of work. Hurry up and get yours soon!

It has gotten late in the evening as I write this and I have become nearly giddy in my enthusiasm for the approaching holiday! I hope you enjoyed the costumes and items I have posted as much as I enjoyed ferreting them out. It has been great fun! Take care everyone and, until next time, see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler
