Happy shopping!

My recent posts had a few items from the Men Only Hunt 3, but here is a whole lot more featuring three dudes who just love to rock. There are lots of great gifts in this hunt – the theme is Rock n Roll – and hunters will find pretty much everything they need to create that rock look, whatever their preferred era. Great shapes (I’m showing three here, but there are many more), skins, clothing… I had mentioned that the hunt would be epic – well it truly is. Crank the tunes, stock up on the beverages and do the whole hunt – you’ll be glad you did.

Hints & Slurls for hunts mentioned in this post: Men Only Hunt 3

Not a lot of freebies today (although there are some hints of the upcoming Men Only Hunt, which will be mega), but instead some new releases from Menswear Fashion Week, with a little Fantasy Faire thrown in for good measure. MWFW brings together a large number of designers focused on menswear with fashion shows and new releases for the event (ends Apr 27), many at discounted prices. The theme is Las Vegas this year, which means casual, stylish clothing with a rakish twist – like with SF Design‘s new Lounge Lizard jacket, which has a texture change hud with six cool motifs (sale price of just 100l for the duration of the event). I also quite like American Bazaar‘s open shirt/tee combination, available in various colors and with different tee options. It looks great with BeUp!’s new jeans and you’ll feel like money wearing it.

Las Vegas is all about fantasy and 22769/Bauwerk‘s Royal Room skybox from Fantasy Faire would fit right in there. It’s Mesh with marble texturing and has a master suite & main living area suitable for high rollers. You can check out 22769’s numerous fashion releases for Fantasy Faire through the 28th.

Monochrome Hunts is back with their latest color-themed hunt, the Lavender Hill Hunt, and like usual there is a nice mix of fashion & decor items to be had. I’m tardy showing the gifts – the hunt officially ends on Mar 10 – but you still have time to get the things you want (note gifts cost 5l). Check the hunt blog for previews of most of the items.

Some of my favorite furniture gifts include [Circa's] coffee table and pouf set. The coffee table comes in two versions and contains a fascinating miniature garden with butterflies. Breno‘s bunny chair will also make you smile and is perfect for the season. On the fashion side, Epicosity‘s Mesh suit is a must for men and Immerse has a lovely purple Mesh dress that pairs perfectly with the necklace gift from Sigma Jewels.

My female model here features a great combination of a Shape It Up! shape found at the Free*Style store for just 10l and a gift skin from Deesse’s. The male is the same Kirk skin from Essences I blogged last time- it’s so nice I haven’t wanted to take it off- here combined with Step Inside‘s shape from the SYSP anniversary hunt. Note that the SYSP anniversary hunt has lots of good gifts for women (see the last pic for one of the outfits). Stop by the Structure Your Skin project to get the store list and hint “book” for the hunt.

I’m also showing two outfits from 22769 to round out the post: The male shirt can be found at Mens Dept, where the March collection launched earlier this week and the female outfit is on sale at Gallery Gift Shop for just a few more days. Have a nice weekend everyone!

It’s always hard to get back to blogging when I’ve been away for a while because I spend so much time catching up on all the events/sales that are underway, but My Attic‘s particularly great February round (ends Feb 28) with its Pop Music theme brought the necessary inspiration to do a little playlist. The collection has awesome stuff for women as well as the very cool “MPop” pose prop from W.Winx that is texture change, completely moddable and lots of fun for doing photos. It paired up well with the Arcade animated video game piece, which is new from End of Daze.

The male avi features an excellent new release skin from Essences – nice to see them concentrating on the male side of things again – available in numerous tones and with various facial hair options. Hair is by Mr  C: designed for “lovers” it was released for Valentines and can be worn by women. Clothing is from Mens Dept and I especially love the cool leather look from Razorblade Jacket with texture change highlights on sale for 150l until Mar 1.

The female stuff shown includes items from various sale rooms (all of which will end soon – the Fi* Friday shorts probably today – so don’t miss out), a nice free skin from MP and two hunt gifts with very different looks that will both fit all the beautiful, busty, Lushious/Tangolicious FT readers out there (i.e. includes appliers): paper.doll‘s dress from the I Love NY Hunt (14l, gifts shown here) and American Bazaar‘s top for HFYIS.

A few more scenes inside the skybox from my last post, including a general view of this nice build from [Deco] on sale at Mens Dept.

Avis are the same as last time (see my previous post for info on gifts from Essences & Anna Shapes, also check the sale rooms for the new sale items from these designers). I’m not sure if the Golden Apple Hunt gifts are still available, but I hope some of you guys made your way over to the NYC sim to grab those items.

The fashion here is a mix of Mens Dept, two really nice group gifts from +HuHu+ (a relatively new store with some cool designs – check it out) and an excellent Christmas gift for women from English Muffin. Note that EM’s gift includes the dress shown plus six female skin tones and it is just one of a whole mess of Xmas gifts (100L joiner fee). EM also has a 1l Secret Santa Gatcha with some other gifties. Update: I’m checking with the owner on the availability of the Christmas dress. It is a new gift, but I can’t find it in the store now. Will change the post accordingly when I get more info. Update 2: The English Muffin gift is now there in a teddy bear under the tree, currently set to free – no group required. Update 3: I’ve just been informed by loyal reader Azurea, that the EM gift (still in the Teddy Bear under the tree) is now free to the group and 75L for non group members. ooof…Thanks Azurea!

Well, that’s all from me. Happy Holidays everyone at FT (and happy shopping).

The latest Mens Dept round has been underway for a while and it features another nice skybox from [Deco] that is great for entertaining with plenty of room for a pool table recently released by End of Daze. And since billiards are best played à deux, some charming company was clearly in order. Of course, after breaking in the table, the evening progressed to other games…

Note that the female fashions are partly from the Golden Apple Hunt, which is a nice little hunt on the NYC sim through December 24 with 12 pretty amazing gifts at a small price of 12l each (see pics of all gifts on the hunt blog). Also both the Essences female skin from TDR Fusion and the shape from Anna Shapes at Designer Circle are in sales ending some time later today, but Essences has just released a new group gift skin and Anna Shapes has a similar shape gift in the Amarelo Manga Christmas hunt (go into each store and find the Santa hats).

I’ve focused more on the female side of things here, but I’ll have a bit more Mens Dept fashion and some general views of the build in a later post.
