Couch Voguing

Brocade Tiger POE9

Curling Up on the Couch

I have to admit, this is my favorite time of the year. The first nip in the air and it’s time to bring out your favorite fuzzy and warm pullovers. Add some new ones to your wardrobe with these finds. The Gift Sweater from Brocade Tiger can be found for FREE on the Peace on Earth Hunt 9. This design will easily get you in the holiday spirit. I paired it with the Rustler Jeans I got as the FREE group gift from FEARSOM. The group is also FREE to join.

Voguing IT!

I stopped by the Vogue Fair and found two more items to show you. The Diego Jacket created by The Orchid Store as the group gift for the Vogue Fair Group. Both the joiner and the gift are at the entrance to the fair and are both FREE! As I toured the fair I found a pair of Navy Classic Slip Ons at the IT’s Gau booth for just $1L. The Vogue Fair runs through December 7th. So make sure you get there before it’s gone.

Dreaming of Peace on Earth

Showing Goodwill to Men

The Peace on Earth 9 Hunt is starting and it has already shown goodwill to this man! I found the Aurelio Outfit and Boots at ALB Dream Designs. This FREE hunt outfit includes mesh pants and floral shirt with vest in XS-XL and a jacket (shown below) in the same sizes. Also included are a pair of standard boots and a pair of slink boots (worn). Included but not shown are two ivy caps (this hair does NOT do head wear.) The POE9 Hunt runs from December 1st – 31st. And have yourself a merry little Christmas now.

Back Against the Wall

Prism

The Work Week Cometh

I thought I’d get one more post in before the work week begins (and very little time to blog). I joined the group for FREE at Prism for Men and scored the Jeremy Outfit as the group gift. This mesh outfit includes the shirt and pants with accompanying alphas AND a HUD to change each to four different colors. (4 pants x 4 shirts = 16 different outfit combinations).

Last Minute Hunting

There is still time left to find items in the Fall ’16 MenStuff Hunt. All items on this hunt are $0L – $1L.  I found the Men’s Classic Checkerboard Sneakers at Kingbal Stores for FREE all it just took a little searching. I also found some poses from Pics & Poses for FREE. I really need to update my collection.

Like an Anchor Around My Neck

Also on the MenStuff Hunt, I found this FREE Gold Anchor Necklace at ELYSIUM. The necklace also come in silver if gold isn’t your thing. It’s off to work, I’ll post when I can.

 

It’s good to be back!

Not Gauche, It’s Gau

Its Gau

 

Jackets are my Thing!

I love wearing outfits that come with jackets. I shiver with anticipation at the thought of cardigan season. This group gift from It’s Gau is perfect for the Fall season and would make a great Winter look as well! The mesh White Jacket Outfit is FREE to group members and the group is FREE to join!

GIMME, GIMME, GIMME

The outfit includes the White Jacket in sizes XS-XL , Skinny Jeans in sizes XS-XL and High Tension Boots. Each comes with an alpha layer. I’m totally loving this look and this one has made it into my outfits folder. Odds are if you see me out and about, I’ll be wearing this!

A Nip in the Air

Tori Stylez -Tyson Sweater1

Black Bagging it

I’m back from doing some Black Friday shopping and have some things to show you. I real life I do the majority of my holiday purchases online, so in theory, I’m sticking with that tradition here as well.🙂 On a tip from Kathryn, my first stop was at Adam & Eve. I picked up the Male Mesh Body for 1/2 price ($1475L) on the Black Friday Sale. A HUD  is included to apply alpha layers to select body parts and a color changer to match your skin tone. No, I didn’t get a mesh head, I can’t give up my face just yet.

Being a Lounge Lizard

I swung by one of my old groups to check out the new (to me) gifts. I picked up several items from the MenStuff Lounge and took an instant liking to the Tori’s Stylez Tyson Hoodie & Dee Black Dress Pants. This is FREE to group members and only $50L to join the group. With the amount of gifts available, it is well worth the lindens to join.

Putting a Lid on It

I thought I’d try my hand at picking out some updated hair at Dura. Instead, I picked up an old group gift that Love blogged here. The Valentine’s Day Hair and Cap is unisex. A texture change HUD is included for five different color combinations for both the hair and the cap and it is resizable.  The Dura group is FREE to join. I decided to go blonde today, but not quite sure I’m a blonde at heart…

Posing Questions

I was lucky and found some new poses from Poses With Attitude on the Fall ’16 MenStuff Hunt. There is still a few days left on this hunt and all items are $0L-$1L. Now with my holiday shopping done, I can kick back and enjoy the rest of the holiday season….Oh look! New sales notices!!!!!

Vintage Homecoming

SARTORIA – Franks Place Formal Suits $0L Open Jacket

Who is this guy?

For those who don’t know me, I’m Carson, FabFree’s newest AND oldest vintage blogger. I was originally hired By Renee Lowenhart in March of 2010 as the male blogger for FabFree, writing alongside Renee,  Whisper Swansong , and Farah Palmer. I also remember helping pick an upstart blogger in 2011 named Love Trill, who by the way likes to call me “vintage”… her word for old.  I spent over two years writing over 1000 posts about free and cheap finds in Second Life before I retired from blogging and SL in 2012. I’ll be sharing my finds with you once or twice a week (as opposed to once or 5 times daily, like before) and tell a few of my goofy stories along the way.

Carson’s first find.

The first find I am going to show is more for new residents who land in Second Life, because let’s be honest, after being away for four years, I’m feeling a bit newbish. When I originally landed in SL back in 2008, I was looking for others to chat with and listen to music.  One of the first places I went to was Frank’s Place Jazz Club. Having not much inventory, no Lindens and walking into a swingin’ joint with a dress code could be pretty daunting. Fortunately, this destination provided residents with a basic suit as to not draw attention to yourself (and risked being bounced) by wearing jeans and a t-shirt. Frank’s Place partnered with SARTORIA to create an updated version of the original Franks Formal Suit. This can be found just inside the main entrance to the club. Walk straight from the landing point and up the steps .

What’s in the box?

This suit for system bodies (yeah… back in the day they were just called bodies) comes with pants and two jackets, buttoned, and unbuttoned for a more casual look. also included are a pair of black dress shoes. (New Resident Tips: Because all the sliders on the shoes are all the way to the right, edit the shoes to make them look more formal and less like you raided Gene Simmons’ closet. Also, many destinations have free items, look at landing points and main building entrances.)

Nothing for the ladies?

Frank’s Place also has a free black dress for the ladies, but I just don’t have the legs to pull off that gown.🙂

SARTORIA – Franks Place Formal Suits $0L Closed Jacket

What’s next for Carson?

I’m hoping you all join me on my journey to create Carson 2.0. In the coming posts I plan on slowly transforming myself to a version that isn’t made with four years old parts. But then again, some people will always call me “vintage”.

Past is Prologue

12

I went out for a stroll in this wooded area and when I took a brief rest, I fell asleep. Imagine my surprise when I woke and found out FOUR YEARS had passed by. By Second Life standards, that like several lifetimes….

 But seriously…. my SL sabbatical lasted much longer than I ever expected. Maybe I will tell some tales of my non SL adventures sometime. (For the Alliance!)

I have been asked by several old acquaintances to dust off the blog and give it a go.  Please bear with me as I try to update essentials like hair and skin… Things have changed in 4 years! So for now I’m just focusing on the clothes.

In getting back in the swing of Second Life, I decided to try my hand at a hunt. The FINAL Menstuff Hunt is continuing through the end of the month. I found the Nathan Cardigan Outfit in Green at VERO MODERO, one of my favorite stores from my past. Mesh was just becoming a thing when I left and now I see it is all the rage. Now this is just an excuse for me to clean out my closet and start fresh! All the items on this hunt are $0 – $1L each so you won’t go broke while having fun.
