Hey FabFree! With all the events and Hops and shops and hunts going on, I decided to send some of my “associates” out to gather up some of the goodies. So today, ya’ll get Alistar showing off a couple of thefree giftsfrom the Valentines Day Shop & Hop.
This is the ‘Aito’ short sleeved hoodie from GothiCatz. You’ll get the black and a sort of red/pink heather color tops each with the anatomical heart on them. Perfect for guys to have hearts for Valentines but still look ‘not girly’. 😉
Next from the Shop & Hop is the cute heart pose from DPSP poses. While this is labeled the “male” pose heart it could easily be unisex. The female pose comes in an identical heart prop but she’s posed in the center. It would be easy to move the hearts together if you wanted two Avis pose on the “same” prop for a really cute couple’s picture. Both hearts are, of course, freeto everyone.
Alistar’s new hair style is also afree gift but not from the Shop & Hop. He’s wearing the ‘Neil’ style from Vango and you can pick it up as a freepast Group gift. Just wear your free to join Group tag and collect it and several other gifts. ‘Neil’ comes with a HUD of classic colors and a tinting page so you can make just about any color you desire.
Hello, FabFree! I hope this weekend is finding you healthy and happy! And speaking of happy. Happy Lunar New Year to all celebrating it! The RL hubby and I got to go downtown and see the Lion dancers for a bit of extra good luck today. All the drums and the firecrackers, it was a great time.
Annnd speaking of time… Time is almost up over at Sugar Riott to grab the two freeshapes that are the January group gifts. There is the one for Raven that Ms Kerydwyn showed us and now we have Alistar showing off the gift, 014, for the Quinn head.
As with the Raven shape, you’ll need to join the freeSugar Riott group to get your gift. The men’s shape is also a full body shape so there’s a version for Belleza Jake, Legacy, SLink and Signature. Plus, as with the ladies shape, the comes with a fully detailed style card.
This guy is at the gym ALOT…
Both shapes are the advertised January Group gifts so time may be running out on them with the last day in January coming up fast. So don’t delay!
As I was looking around the grid for deals for the guys I found Gabriel, a men’s fashion staple in Second Life. Not only have they been around since 2009, their quality is amazing. I also discovered that this designer is very generous by providing a small store of freeitems that anybody would be proud to wear.
Most of the freebies are clothes that are not rigged for a specific mesh body however unless you have a very large muscular shape you shouldn’t have trouble wearing them.
Make sure you check out the main store as they also have a 1L section with even more great fashions and many 50% off items.
XXS – XL

Hey FabFam! Like I told you Monday night, I’m back with a post for the 54 Holiday Event from LeLutka but this time it’s Alistar’s turn for a makover. Ms Starla introduced you to her Vinny and I was so happy to see another guy for FabFree. Gabe gets lonely ya know. And I was shocked at how different he looks from the 2 styles I worked up for Alistar! It really goes to show how a little creativity and some excellent shapes and skins can make a whole new “person”!
So let’s jump in with Alistar. First up, I kept the right-out-of-the-box shape and brow shape for Quinn. It’s a good shape, not too big and not too small. I felt that the included skin made the model look much older than what I’m used to seeing. But even that is a good thing really. We need more diverse looks across the Grid. I decided to go with the skin from Avarosa for my version of Quinn.
The aptly named skin “Quinn” comes in six shades both with and without brows as well as it’s own head and brow shapes. I needed the Neck Fade Fixes from Bold & Beauty I mentioned yesterday to get a great match with my current body skin. Remember, those fixees are packaged in the “Nicholas” gift’ I was a bit disappointed that no designer offered matching body skins with the gifts. Hey, I can dream! 😉
Alistar’s snazzy hat is from Vango. “Nate” comes with the attached hair and a helpful alpha layer for the top of your head. You also get a HUD for 20 shades of hair and 6 colors for the hat. Plus it’s tintable!
Since there is a more limited number of gifts for the guys, I decided to show one more look. And believe me, there where plenty of other shapes and skins and hair to show! Look #2 is using the shape, also named “Quinn” from Stray Dog. I really liked this shape too. It’s much larger than the first and a bit more bulky. But if that’s your style, here’s your guy. Again, I felt the skin included was not quite my thing even though it’s a phenomenal design. It’s incredibly life like! So you may fall in love.
I added the T5 skin from Bold & Beauty to my new shape and I couldn’t be happier! Bold & Beauty‘s “Nicholas” is a gorgeous skin (and a great shape too). It comes in 6 shades with 3 versions each of dark brows, light brows and no brows. Alistar is wearing the T5 shade with light brows.
The new short hair is from Modulus so you know it’s quality! The “Lenny” hair base comes in 8 colors to choose from. If that isn’t enough, it’s tintable too.
So there you have it, a dashing guy for absolutely free! If any of the designers for the 54 Holiday Event happen to read this… THANK YOU for an awesome event! Ya’ll rawk!
We have until Dec 30th to take full advantage of this great Event so don’t miss out!

I’d been dreaming of a seaside escape for weeks and Blue and I finally took a moment away from all the hustle and bustle of the real world and spent an entire day enjoying the sun, surf, and sand. For some extra fun, surf lessons. Blue took to the waves like a duck to water, while I was a little less certain! Either way, we still had an amazing time out at Kanaloa Surf Beach.
Before heading to the beach we picked up some new swimwear from MishMash Fusion. They have a set of his and hers swimsuits as their Surf into Summer Hunt prize. We also grabbed this surfboard with the tandem pose from Something New. It’s one of 2 the two poses included in the Surf into Summer Hunt prize at Something New. The Surf into Summer Hunt is running now through June 21st, and the prizes are just 2 lindens. Mahalo everyone for being here, and happy hunting!
Swimsuit sizes Included:
His – Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature Gianni, Slink, TMP, Standard Mesh (xs – XL) + Alpha Layer
CCCCOOOOFFFEEEEEE! Is the only way for a college student to survive. It’s the pick me up, the all nighters best friend, hangover cure, and just what the Doctor ordered. Man did I need my morning pick me up after a long night of partying. I had to find something to wear of course, before I go out, and grab my morning cup of Joe. I pulled on my grey Hawker’s House shorts, they smell clean enough. Then ravaged through my drawers, looked under the bed, was left with the only clean shirt I had. My loud awesome go to Boyberry summer party shirt. Then I slipped on my Ellison Coastal sandals from Rebellion as I grabbed my Vespa keys and went out the door.
Rode to the best place to get coffee near campus. Then your left deciding what to order of course. Hmm…Double Double, French Vanilla Cappuccino, The Gretzky, Chocolate Timbits Iced Capp, Doubleshot on Ice, White Mocha Frappuccino, Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Latte, or perhaps the Espresso Frappuccino. I went with just the simple Double Double for now. MMmmm…man did I need that. Nothing like that warm caffeine coursing through your veins to get you ready for a long day of classes. BTW if you like my outfit, the entire thing is free.
All three piece are from the Allstuff Hunt going on right now. Who can pass up on this wild Summer Shirt from Boyberry? These denim Bernuda Shorts from Hawker’s House is only part of their gift. It also includes an Ombre tank. Along with another outfit and sandals in the box. These Ellison sandals are just what a guy needs for the upcoming summer months. There is a long list of Menstuff Hunt gifts for the guys. All of the items are priced $0L or $1L. Not to worry cause this hunt includes ALL the stuff groups. Which are Womenstuff, Menstuff, Homestuff, Posestuff, and Kidstuff. There is something in this hunt for what ever it is you fancy here in Second Life. Just remember to grab yourself a cup of coffee, you’ll need it for all the hunting your gonna do on this hunt. Cheers!
Friday the 13th is the perfect day to go camping, right? Surely nothing sinister would happen… I can just hear the iconic “something bad is about to happen” music starting to play! I love a classic horror flick, so when Blue showed me these Camp Crystal Lake tees by ZFG (Zero F*cks Given) I had to share them with you; today being Friday the 13th is just the icing on the cake.
The matching his and hers shirts are the free Twisted Hunt prize at ZFG. When hunting be wary of the decoy boxes the Twisted Hunt is famous for. The Twisted Hunt runs through the end of the month, so you have some time to get things figured out. There are no hints either, so I can’t help you there. To get yours, you’ll have to head over to ZFG and hunt it down! The male and female version are in the same box.
Hello there, Fabulous Readers! The pupster and I took off for the desert this past weekend and had a blast. We dropped the old truck down into four wheel drive and made our own roads. Of course, any trip out into treacherous terrain needs clothes suitable for the task, and it was the perfect opportunity to get my newest top broken in. I picked it up free as a group gift.
Roam if You Want To
Over at the [ContraptioN] shop, I discovered the Roamer’s Top in Sundown set out as a free gift for members of the L’Homme Magazine Group. With its black fading to red color scheme, long sleeves and high collar, this shirt is ideal for a day out roughing it. The designer included great visual details such as the silvery design emblazoned on the sleeves, the realistic wrinkles in the fabric and the buckled strap that extends diagonally across the chest. The folder contains versions for a variety of mesh body avatars. This gift is the “Sundown” edition, which has just one color scheme. A single texture HUD is included so that someone owning the full fatpack of the Roamer’s Top can use the HUD to mix the unique textures of this special edition with options found in their full collection. Since the L’Homme Magazine Group has no join fee, you can add this rugged top to your collection for free!
We are closing in on mid-week and I think it’s time to take some down time, and maybe play a little HORSE. For this post I picked up the Beached Bunny Hunt 9 prize at Freda, and my handsome guy picked up the July group gift at R2A. I think we look great on the court in our red and black. I also picked up this cute pose for just 15 linden on the Marketplace. Keep reading for all the what, where, and how.
Freda Beached Bunny Hunt 9 Prize –
My top and matching shorts are the BBH9 prize at Freda. They are cute as can be, and can be worn together or separate. The BBH9 is a dollarbie hunt meaning all prizes are just 1 linden. The hunt will run through the end of the month, so you’ve got a little time to hunt down this outfit at Freda. The outfit comes in the following sizes: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Ocacin, Voluptuous, and a “Classic Model Size M.” No alpha layer is included however. You’ll be looking for a beach pail full of sand.
Hint – Do not spread all that sand over the work table when picking your gift!
R2A July Group Gift –
The top and matching athletic shorts Blue has on are the free July group gift at R2A. This gift comes with a color change hud for some customization. It also happens to come in quite a few sizes, including some sizes for child/teen avatars. The following sizes are included with this free group gift at R2A: Signature Gianni, Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza Jake, Nx – David, Tweenster, Toddledoo. The R2A group is also free to join at this time.
Vetro Poses Basketball Pose –
Vetro Poses has quite a few inexpensive poses available on the Marketplace. I picked up their “Couple Playing Basketball 02” pose for just 15 linden on the Marketplace. This pose includes the his and hers poses, along with a basketball, and the option to have a basketball goal (not shown) included with the pose. I wanted to use a different basketball with this pose, so it was derendered and a different ball put in its place.
