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

The Perfect Time To Get A Head In SL!

WHC head 4_002

Good evening everyone! I am doing this entry hurriedly because time is of the essence for this post. Right now we all have a outstanding opportunity to obtain an item we would normally NEVER get for free! Absolut Creation, the maker of the great ADAM & Eve Mesh Bodies, has a special VERY limited time offer. To celebrate creator Ginger Chevalier’s ninth anniversary in Second Life, the brand new Mesh head for ADAM has been released for free! You do not need to have ADAM to use this handsome men’s head and this is a one of a kind chance to get a super product at no cost! Pick this up and play with it some. Honestly, guys do not usually get products like this offered to us for free, so do take advantage of the chance. It will be free for an extremely limited time. Go, now! Any moment might be too late.

For the people admiring this new release PopArt Andy Warhol tribute Jacket and Jeans, it is the work of Alex Avion, the owner and creator of Brocade Tiger. It isn’t a freebie or cheapie, but with the death of David Bowie recently putting me in a reflective mood, the sight of the Warhol tribute made me smile. Speaking of Bowie, as of right now over at Brocade Tiger you can grab a dark blue version of the Goblin King outfit he wore in the movie Labrynth for free! While you are picking that up make sure to look for their free Menstuff prize which is a highly artistic pair of dark blue jeans with a tiger print on them.

At the moment I am working on my favorite hunt of the year: Menstuff! I will soon bombard you with entries about the prizes I find. However, if you get the chance to hunt before I post, don’t hold back. The quality of the items is exemplary and, at 100 stops, you are bound to find some fantastic prizes.

With time being of the essence, I wanted to make sure to post this information as soon as possible. Go get this free head today! We rarely get a chance to play with things like this, so get moving guys! Until next time, see you on the grid (probably on the Menstuff Hunt).—–WHC Riler

More Free Footwear For Men!

whc shoe post 4 oddity 1

“Free Footwear Day” is underway here at Fab Free. Being the resident slacker of the crew, I imagine some jaws will drop when they notice a second post from me in a single day! The Truth is though there are more items that literally cry out for attention. Items of unbelievable quality that also happen to be free!

In the above picture, I have gathered some amazing boots from Oddity. Currently there are two different pair of boots available there as free group gifts. Both of them are mesh and have huds which offer several textures. In the foreground, the Casey – Basic Boots are super detailed, probably the best free boots I have ever seen. The hud gives you both brown and black (maybe dark gray) textures and two different lace and trim textures. For a free group gift this is an incredible item to be offered, one that deserves some consideration. In the background, the Ash – Basic Boots are shown in brown. Again with Oddity you are getting hyper realistic, high quality Mesh boots. Ash comes in gray and brown, selectable via the texture hud. Unfortunately I do feel compelled to mention that both of these items carry the store logos prominently to a degree which might turn off some, but these items are of such high quality I urge you to pick them up and try them yourself. There is a good chance you are going to love them!

whc hoorenbeek 1_002

In the second picture, I collected the shoes that are currently available for free on the subscribo over at Hoorenbeek. The shoes in the foreground are the Mesh Allen Dress Shoes in Brown. These are excellent dress shoes to have and a fine example of the quality of the shoes you find over at Hoorenbeek, a store that has long been a personal favorite of mine for men’s shoes. Behind them in the picture I have arranged four variations of their Mesh Heritage Boots in Gritty Black. All included in the subscribo gift , this boot package is nearly overwhelming in its generosity. Designed to keep you from having to use a group slot, Hoorenbeek‘s subscribo has very different rules than most subscribos. If you have previously joined it so your name is on the list, you can pick these items right now! If not, then you will need to visit the store and join the subscribo as soon as possible. There is a two week wait before you are permitted to pick up the free gifts after joining, so sadly, by the time you are eligible to pick up these free gifts they could be gone. However, whatever items that will be offered at that time will be of such quality that you will not be disappointed. Hit the subscribo, you won’t be sorry!

This concludes my second “Free Footwear Day” post, thank you for reading Fab Free and I hope today you find something that you enjoy wearing for a long time. Until next time, have fun and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Happy Free Footwear Day From WHC!

whc shoe post 1 gabriel_001 boots

I thought long and hard about how I would kick off my “Free Footwear Day” coverage. Shoes for men…for free? That’s one of those items, along with hair, that men have a hard time finding on the grid. Hard, but not impossible, thanks to some generous stores like Gabriel. Recently I was heaping praise upon Gabriel for giving Second Life residents a fantastic holiday gift, one many of us will be talking about for months. I assumed it would be awhile before I focused on them again. Any discussion regarding free men’s shoes available on the grid however, happily brings me right back to praising the Gabriel and its creator Takuya jinn!

In the above picture, you see the free Leather Men’s Booties in Black and Brown. With a name like “booties” I expected something a little frilly. But no! These are polished masculine looking boots, finely textured and detailed. These are must pickups for male avies looking for boots. They will be a sharp choice to accompany many outfits and most importantly, these free group gifts look far from cheap!

In the second picture, the shoes on the left are the Brown Dress Shoes. Looking highly polished and sharp, this is a gentleman’s shoe to be sure. They prove that you do not need to spend a fortune on Second Life to look fantastic. In the middle are the White Mesh Boat Shoes looking very realistic with the pebbled leather texturing and leather shoe laces. One look at them and my mind races towards spring and summer. To the right are the Mesh Brown Leather Driving Shoes, a nice soft looking loafer which appears to be quite comfortable. As with all of the free Gabriel shoes I am mentioning, the quality and texturing is excellent.

The final picture highlights the Shearling Short Boots in Brown. These soft, worn looking boots are very different from the brown polished booties in the top picture. They are far more relaxed looking and good for your most casual moments. I wear boots from Gabriel often when I am putting together outfits. They are amazing for free group gifts. Finally, Gabriel has set out a dressy brown wingtip shoe, as well. If you swing by and take advantage of all the free group gifts they offer, you will be well on the way to building the shoe section of your wardrobe. For the price (FREE), this is a “don’t miss” kind of shopping trip and the place to begin your hunt for inexpensive men’s shoes.

This concludes my first “Free Footwear Day” post, I hope you see something that inspires you to go snap it up. While you do that, I am going out to hunt a few more items to post for you today. Have fun and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler
