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.

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

The Challenge is a monthly event organized by Bauwerk and L&K Prefabs where participating builders have to create an object to fit a randomly generated theme. The second round theme this month is California Bungalow – maybe not the most exotic, but there are some nice items from the participants that should appeal to many (previews can be seen on the website).

The fashion here features great casual items from American Bazaar (including one hunt gift), an excellent free male shape found on MP, new release jeans from KlubWerK (check out the store for a whole bunch of group gifts), more from Mens Dept and BSD Design Studio‘s cute shoes/bag combination from Kawaii Fair (many freebies to be found at the various stands there as well). Also note that some of the furniture blogged below is from the Cookie Jar Spring Festival Hunt, which ends in a few days.

Kusshon‘s It’s a Man’s World Screen, available at Mens Dept through today (after in store), makes a nice vintage decor item and was fun to use as a backdrop for some retro style photos. My friend Sidney Bluestar of Sup Poses got inspired and made some pin-up type poses to go with the screen, now available for sale in her store with a prop of her design.

Lots of events ending today or this weekend (Tekila pointed out some below) such as Mens Dept, The Arcade, Skin Fair, Whore Couture and various hunts. For the women, note the excellent shape from PixyStix, which is a hunt gift available through today.  Also go visit new hair store Due, where you will find a fatpack of the mesh “Lily” hair completely free.

This is just a quickie post I threw together in between packing since I’m about to leave for winter break somewhere in the real world. The post features a newish release jacket from HuHu available in a host of colors (or a texture change version with hud) and hair from Mr. C, a new hair store with some interesting styles for men & women. I’m showing the male group gift and there is also a subscriber & group gift for women (30l join fee). The shoes are the new unisex group gift from (Red)Mint.

The luggage and decor are from Cleo Design. I recently blogged part of their gift from the Four Walls hunt, but this is another great set with a ton of luggage pieces and assorted travel necessities you can get free at Designer Warehouse along with a range of other gifts until February 7 (items posted here). See you in a few weeks…

Hints & Slurls for hunts mentioned in this post: Femboy HuntNew in 2013 Hunt

My last post on Four Walls concentrated on some of the rustic items, the grungy even. This time I wanted to feature the more modern gifts – those with clean lines and often modular in concept. Pieces such as Scarlet Creative‘s shelving units (the gift includes numerous versions that you can mix and match) or Breno‘s reading nook (part of a future modular series), work perfectly in Circa‘s “Infinity Cloud” Glass Studio from the hunt, which has cubed rooms off a main living space,  skylights with metallic highlights and panoramic glass windows (Mesh, 29 land impact). Four Walls goes to the end of the month and previews can be seen on the hunt website.

I’m wearing Diego, the new Mesh head from CheerNo, which is on sale at TDR Fusion until Feb 1. In a sense, with these mesh add-ons, be they heads, breasts, hands, feet or other appendages, the avi itself becomes modular, a base to which components can be added or subtracted at will depending on needs. CheerNo’s head is interesting and can give a very realistic effect, but the lack of facial expressions can be a drawback. Some new releases shown below include Mens Dept items, a great shirt from HuHu (available with texture change hud) and an outfit from Apple May Designs, which is marking the opening of its new mens store with everything 50% off just this weekend (the AMD hoodie shown below is available in a different color free in store). Update: was free just for the weekend.

Hints & Slurls for hunts mentioned in this post: Cold Winter Nights HuntCourtyard HuntFour Walls

For the decor fans there are amazing hunts on now and I’m sure some of you are already out doing them (Hello Lilith). The Four Walls hunt brings SL’s top designers offering up some excellent gifts that should fit well with your design schemes. Gifts cost 20l so you need to choose wisely. There are too many standouts to name them all, but some of my favorites shown below include a great dresser from Pilot, a cool lamp from Vespertine (one of three), Cheeky Pea‘s hockey items and a fun guitar prop/chair from Zinnias.

Two other furniture hunt options now underway are the Courtyard Hunt (Free) and Cold Winter Nights (10l) You can see previews of almost all the gifts on the various hunt websites.

The avi shown below is from Peau, a new skin store for men, and can be found for the super nice price of 55l at Fi* Friday (ends sometime Wednesday), which is  a great weekly source of edgy fashion.

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).
