Top of the list is the free Tuxedo Hair by Damselfly that can be yours just by joining the Cosmopolitan Sales Room Group! Join for free and click the poster above the door in the main room! It comes with a colour change HUD and matching hairbases so there is bound to be a shade to suit your taste! The Alexandro Blazer by Etham and the Cargo Shorts by GioMEN are also available there for discounted prices. The Cargo Shorts come with a colour change HUD so you are really getting several pairs for one price which is a great bargain!

Both items could be worn by either male or female! He is also wearing the Blaze Hi-Tops which is a free group gift by Eudora! If you are looking for a really great male skin at a discount price, then be sure to head over to The Mens Dept where you can pick up the absolutely gorgeous Javier skin by Aeros for L$300! Believe me this is an amazing bargain. There are matching SLink appliers on the floor nearby for L$25 each!

I have some great items to show you too! The Simply Sweater by Offbeat is a great wardrobe staple now the cooler nights are drawing in as Autumn gets closer while the Alien Leggings by L’Douce Push are so fun I couldn’t resist! They come with appliers for Phat Azz, Ghetto Booty, Banned, WowMeh and SLink aswell as system layers which I am wearing here. My belly tattoo is called Spell and is by Utopiah. It is another of the group gifts you can find at the Totally Top Shelf event! All you need to do is join the Totally Top Shelf group for free to grab the goodies!

My nails are by 7Mad Ravens and are usually how I feel when doing my nails.. one stroke and I was done! Me and nail varnish do not have the best of friendships as Im so clumsy, so these were perfect for me! My rather rainbowtastic skin is the Eliana skin in tone 4 by Lumae that you can find at the Olive You Fundraiser for half the normal price with all proceeds going to the fundraiser!

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.

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.

Tile Oasis:  Pierre Ceriano (#022 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.

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)

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

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.

Image

TOP ROW:  [Geek..] (MOH4 #52), Aesthetica (MOH4 #50), UtopiaH (MOH4 #35), [Body Factory] (MOH4 #25)

Bottom ROW:  [sYs] (MOH4 #9), [Zoom] (MOH4 #4), Adjunct (MOH4 #2)


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.

Image

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.

Image

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.

Image

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…..

Image

In all but the last two pictures Geoffrey is wearing:

Skin:  Xen_tan_bald_shaved by Prodigal (not free)

Eyes: Deep Honey Hazel mesh eyes by MayFly (not free)

Hair:  Steve by A&A Hair (not free)
