Grim, And Yet So Pleasant A Find!

whctlb 1

Hi everyone! Sadly, the excellent Jack Or Jill Hunt is over. There is, however, at least one free prize a creator has left out for us straggling hunters, and it is not to be missed! The Little Bat offered the Grim Outfit W/Hud for the Jack Or Jill Hunt containing the Grim Jacket & Shirt shown above. The jacket is a one piece mesh combo featuring a simple denim jacket, well-textured and very realistic-looking over a foreboding skull T-Shirt. The Tee is texture change via included hud and offers you six color choices to choose from. I really appreciate it when designers offer us something with texture change options. It moves the items high up on my “Wanted” list. That isn’t all that is included in this free gift though! The Little Bat also throws in the jeans I am wearing in two styles: Straight and Tapered. Both versions come in five sizes as does the Jacket & Shirt combo, so getting a good fit will be a breeze. Run to get this item, it could be gone any minute!

Pru previously mentioned a store over at the shopping event called Swank here. Swank is a themed monthly sales event and this month the theme is “Luck Of The Irish”! There are free gifts and inexpensive gachas to be found there, so it is worth popping by for a visit. It just so happens when I was over there I found something I liked quite a bit! The Safety Vest – The Boss from Dita Couture is at The Swank Event on a Gacha for only 30L per play. It looks very realistic and while it isn’t something you would normally wear every day, it is definitely a fun item to pick up. It could come in very handy role-playing on Second Life or if you happen to be a male dancer, it could be part of a very sexy stage outfit. Either way, for only 30L it is something that deserves your consideration.

Also at The Swank Event are the free eyes I am wearing this week, the Ivernia Shamrock Eyes from Dulce Secrets. To show off how nice they are, I inset a close up on the top picture which hopefully does them justice. They are offered in both regular and Mesh versions and make for an excellent free gift to pick up. I collect eyes on SL and was thrilled to add these to my collection, I hope you will be too!

That’s it for me, now it’s time to wander off to first life for a while. I hope you all have some fun tonight on the grid, however you enjoy spending your time there. For now I will leave you my friends with my best wishes, have fun and see you on the grid very soon!—–WHC Riler

Giving You The Gold Shoulder ;-)

whc amerbazaar blkshirt 1

Happy Wednesday! In the spirit of the holidays, I planned to post something bright and colorful. However, wouldn’t you know it? I found something fantastic in black instead! Black is, of course, the official color of Men’s clothes in Second Life (a fact that I readily make fun of often). Sometimes, though, an item comes along too sharp-looking to be ignored, and this is one of those cases.

The Serious Shirt is this month’s free group gift from American Bazaar. It is a seriously handsome shirt combo, with the black shirt, tie and a nicely textured sweater all integrated into a sweet piece of Mesh! It is offered in Five sizes for an easy fit, and the black-on-black look and great style suits my taste to a tee. Well done, American Bazaar. Thank you for a fantastic free gift!

There is a Christmas tree at The Cosmopolitan Sales Room decorated with festive stockings which are filled with a variety of free gifts. Among them you will find the Fashion Shades from Yasum that I am wearing in the above picture. There are versions for both male and female avies. Plus, they come with a hud giving you a choice of six frame textures and four lens textures. These shades are quite stylish and the hud options make them versatile as well.

Last (but certainly not least!), there are several free gifts over at Swank Events. The one that really screamed, “Pick me up!” was a shoulder pet, of all things. I have never blogged a shoulder pet before so for it to catch my eye, you know it is something special. Heth Haute Couture has created Cosima The King of Couture – Shoulder Pet, a brilliant gold figure with bright diamond eyes. Highly detailed right down to the little crown, it is an impressive piece of work to be sure. I usually don’t wear shoulder pets. I doubt most guys do, but this is definitely eye catching and it could be just the right detail to finish off a fun outfit.

That’s it for now. With the holiday season upon us, I hope your lives are filled with joy and love. If you can’t have that, then try comfort and lust. That doesn’t sound too bad either. However things work out, best wishes to you and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Seahorses in Fall

Seahorse

Happy Saturday Fab Free! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. Even though we recently had a Free Hair Day on the blog, in my Second Life, there is no such thing as too much hair! I am certain I’m not alone in this. With that in mind, Besom recently put out a new Group Gift hairstyle called Bellinia.

The fanciful name fits this FREE hairstyle from Besom very well. It’s a lush long style with feathery waves. The Besom group is FREE to join, and well worth the effort. You’ll find previous group gifts still available, as well as a group only Midnight Mania Board at the Besom main location. Not to mention the gift is a fatpack, which means it includes every color option available! I have to admit, I felt very mermaid-like with this gorgeous hair, so the FREE gift Luminesse has out at the current round of SWANK is kind of perfect to show with it.

There are always great finds at SWANK, and the Luminesse gift is fabulous to say the least. This specific gift does not require you to wear any group tags, just stop by the SWANK event and pick it up for FREE. The gift includes this beach-y necklace shown, and a matching pair of earrings. Even though most of us don’t think of seahorses as typical for fall accessories, I think the bold colors are great for any season. Besides, this is Second Life, just about anything goes!

So I’ve got a new hairstyle, and some bling, time to get the nails done! Nail Me! has the perfect solution, as they often do. The November Group Gift at Nail Me! is a colorful set of paisley printed nails that are too pretty to miss out on. This group gift is completely FREE, and the Nail Me! group is FREE to join. So that you can see all of the beautiful vibrant colors in this nail palette, I’ve included the vendor photo below.

Free SWANK

Hawker's House at SWANKWe are half way through the month of October, so you’ve got just at two weeks left to make it over to the SWANK Event and check out amazing offers from some of the grid’s best designers. Additionally, you’ll find that many of the designers have set out FREE gifts as part of the event. Some gifts do require the SWANK group tag, but not to worry, the group is also FREE to join. While spending this cool autumn afternoon shopping, I picked up a few things at SWANK myself. A favorite of which is this blazer and shirt combo from Hawker’s House.

This classic casual combination of a jacket and t-shirt is a FREE gift from Hawker’s House at SWANK. There’s no group tag needed for this one, just pick it up at the event. This gift is fully mesh, has matching alphas, and comes in standard sizing. Not to mention the fun sugar skull image is perfect for the season.

Get Some Swag at Swank

Swank Event

It’s mid-week Fab Free, we’re a little more than half way to the weekend! I bet you can guess how I like to celebrate? That’s right, shopping! In the virtual sea of events happening in Second Life right now, I decided to spend a little time at the Swank Event. This event has a fun French theme for September, and each of the vendors has out a FREE gift just for stopping by. Some of the gifts require the Swank group tag, but not to worry, the group is FREE to join. This event is big enough to have a little something for everyone but not so big that it’s overwhelming.

While I picked up several of the gifts, this gorgeous outfit by LaVain & Co. is my favorite. This fully mesh outfit includes the pretty floral tank top with its daring neckline and the matching black pants. Each piece can be worn separately as well as together. I also snagged this cute little clutch by Vanessa. I’ve discovered that my real life purse obsession has started to transfer over into Second Life, and I was glad to add this one to my collection.
