Today I have something for guys, and several goodies for you girls.
First up: Vitamen.
Viamen has a gift for guys, and each month a new one comes out. This shop specialises in men’s underwear.. and the designs are always fresh and well executed. The gift for July,VITAMEN Monthly Freebie on July201, can be worn as underwear, or you can show them off at the beach or pool. The prim drawstring ensures a great fit every time. It comes in five colours: Blue, Green, Pink, Purple, and Mono, so you’ll always be able to find just the colour you want.
To get your free pair, just teleport to the shop and touch the board. There is no group requirement to take advantage of this free sample from one of the best shop for men on the grid.
I admit, I’d never been to Beautiful, Dirty, Rich before yesterday. I’m not sure why I’d never been there since I get notices frequently, I’ll just chalk it up to having been super-busy in RL and SL.
But now that I have visited, you’ll be seeing more posts featuring BDR. The fashions span a range of styles, are very reasonably prices, and feature good textures that are applied with an obviously talented hand.
I was very surprised to see so many gifts and reduced prices, so you can sample a wide range of products without shelling out a lot of money. In today’s economy you simply can’t shrug off a good deal, and BRD has good deals in droves.
When you land at Beautiful, Dirty, Rich, take the time to explore the shop, you’ll find deals for 10L$ or less, Midnight Mania Boards, and Friday freebies. You’ll also find great outfits for 150L$ and less. This great price doesn’t get you just a sweater or just a skirt.. but an entire outfit with pieces that can be coordinated with other pieces already in your wardrobe.
Houssine, Lilac Obsession, and Secretly are free product sample just for dropping by. Just touch the boards, and these hot dresses will be immediately sent to you.. no group membership or subscription required.
Don’t forget to touch the Midnight Mania boards beside the free sample boards. And if you have a group spot open, join the BDR group to be kept up to date on the latest releases. There are special gifts available just for group members.. and the group is free to join!
The outfit above,TGIF in vibrant neon yellow and pink, as well as the next two outfits, are TGIF gifts from beautiful, Dirty, Rich. They are not far from the landing point, walk just to your right, and down the steps to find them. I’m not sure if these are weekend only gifts due to the TGIF name, but they were still there this morning, so give it a try.
TGIF in Denim (above), and Zebra (below), from Beautiful, Dirty, Rich.
The skin shown in these photos is Rainbow Skin Corpse Palor.. a gruesome name for such a delicate skin. Poses shown are from Diesel Works. The Chum Bracelet shown was a group gift from Miel. This bracelet is customisable, so that you can sport any custom phrase or word up to six characters in length.

Did someone say underwear.. for guys?
First we have Rocco, from INDI Designs. The undershirt (Part 1), and Briefs (Part 2) are part of the puzzle this time around. You can pick up a new pieces each week for free. When the outfit is completed, all pieces are available at a greatly reduced price. So, never fear if you missed that great-looking undershirt, it will still be available again, just not for free.
Vitamen is a favourite of Hawk’s, and the briefs shown below are nice-looking enough to be a swimsuit. Vitamen has a new free pair of men’s underwear each month. No need to join the group to get the monthly complimentary underwear, but join anyway to get up-to-the-minute news about great deals and new releases at Vitamen.
Although this one is for the guys, girls definitely appreciate the hot underwear that Vitamen has to offer. Vitamen has some of the nicest male “unmentionables” on the grid, and always has a monthly freebie available so that you can check out the quality of their products. Once you’ve seen the goods at Vitamen, you’ll become a loyal fan too.
Shown above is the Vitamen Prince Pearl Thong, MENstuff Hunt #6. This hunt continues through the end of February, so you still have plenty of time to pick it up. You’ll find it at the Vitamen main shop, link provided below.
Shown above is sort of a two-fer gift from Vitamen at their satellite location located at Sounds Gravis Beach. This lucky board gift includes underwear that can double as a swimsuit, and a condom filled balloon that is appropriate for both men and women, and yes, I blogged the balloon here yesterday. Landmark for Sounds Gravis Beach is shown below.
The monthly Freebie for February is shown in the picture above. Vitamen has a new freebie for you every month, all you have to do is show up at their main location (location shown below) and pick it up.

There are a couple of deals at Lemania Indigo designs you might want to check out over the weekend. Actually, there are more, but these were my favourites.
First up, for 60L$ Weekend, there is an elegant black gown called noir, it includes a greyed skin (not shown), shoes, not shown, and champagne bottle with a built in pose.
The wonderfully flamboyant hairstyle is from Vanity Hair. Mask and hair detail are texture change on click. Have fun clicking through all the variations of this fun hairstyle!
The “IT’S ON SALE WEEK ” specially priced dress this week is Nightshade. This very sexy dress has a ton of options because of the two very different skirts included. Get it all for only 99L$.
Egyptian Dragonfly is an oldie but goody at Lemania Indigo Designs. I’ve included this curve huggin dress just to show you that Lemania Indigo is no afraid to do colour in a big way.. and because I like it. No longer on sale, this is the kind of deal you can miss if you hesitate for even one day. Lemania Indigo designs has a specially priced dresses that go on sale for 24 hours only, after that they go back up to regular price. Stop by regularly to check the prices and pick up your favourite designs.
The Coin Necklace, so appropriate with this dress, is from Trident. You’ll find a huge selection of unusual pieces at Trident. If you’re bored of the every day pieces we see all too often on the grid, try checking trident. You won’t be disappointed.
Vitamen has a February gift out that both guys and girls can use.
Valentine’s day is coming up very soon, and Vitamen’s gift will make sure that your special day is fun and safe. It’s a Lucky Board win from their new satellite location at Sounds Gravis Beach. You’ll have to pop the balloon to get the condoms inside (boo!), but the kitty is yours to keep (yay!).
So spread the love, but not the STD’s.. and stay safe this Valentine’s Day.

I use Diesel Works poses all the time in my pictures because they’re good basic poses for modeling. When I chose to use a pose, I generally don’t need something that shows action, or how much fun I’m having, a need a pose that shows the clothes well, and Diesel Works fills that need perfectly.
That’s not saying that Diesel Works poses can’t be fun.
Right now Diesel Works has some fun couple poses that you can try out for free. The POE Hunt gift, show above is good for all kinds of friends, it’s not just a guy-girl pose.. but is a pose for all of us. What a cute pose this would be for those holiday cards we’ll all be sending out in the next couple weeks!
Rogan Diesel, owner of Diesel Works and the mind behind all of the great products at Diesel Works always has a freebie out for us. They can be found near the landing point. While you’re there, don’t forget to try out some of the other great poses and props, I’m particularly fond of the Diesel Works Chaise Lounge that can be seen in this post.
Poses at Diesel Works can be purchased as single poses, or in money-saving fat packs. Join the group, and save even more with group discounts!

Clothes in this post are from Prim & Pixel Paradise (one Shang) and Vitamen (on Hawk).
The snowflake jammies are a free gift from Prim & Pixel Paradise. The cute bow earrings Shang is wearing are also from prim & Pixel Paradise; you’ll have to visit Santa to get these beauties, which are available in several colour options.
The briefs Hawk is wearing are the current gift of the month (December). Stop by Vitamen to get them.
Lemania Indigo Designs has a new selection of specials for you.
There are some Courtyard Specials that are only 100L$ for 24 hours. Grab these great styles before they go up in price.
Matisse Deco (shown above) is reminiscent of the flapper era, with a great fringe layer. This dress, in teal, has the shapes and style of the 20′s – it’s classy and sassy and unique! Matisse deco is only 100L$ for the next 24 hours.. don’t miss out on this great deal.
Fanceey D (shown above) is a pink confection with lovely flowers and a layer of stockings and panties as well, and it can all be yours for only 50L this week – what a deal! It’s the letter of the week this week, just remember F for Fanceey D.
3 Shades of Green includes three sweaters (in various hues and shades of green of course) with pale denim jeans and those hot fur boots that everyone is wearing this year. It’s another 100L$ deal from Lemania Indigo Designs.. but only for 24 hours!
Hawk is wearing hot camo print underwear from Vitamen. It’s the monthly freebie for November.
These looks would probably do the job.
Only a few days after putting not one, but two awesome dia de los muertos skin up in her shop.. for free, MiaSnow Myriam puts up an equally awesome skin for guys.
Muerto Miguel is now up in the Midnight Mania board at Miasnow. It needs only 5 people to slap it, and one person wins the skin. If you can muster a crowd, it won’t take long for everyone to win one.. so gather your friends and head on over to MiaSnow.
And what could go better with the Muerto Miguel skin than some suitably gruesome underwear that’s the October gift from Vitamen? These are so great that I picked up a set too. um.. don’t worry about that little blood spatter, blood washes out.
While at MiaSnow, don’t forget about the Hunt of the Living Dead. MiaSnow is participating in this hunt, and the skins, though gruesome, are very well done with veins and bruises.. and two truly creepy sets of eyes. There is one for girl zombies, and one for guy zombies.
Well, maybe not in this first picture, but you’ll see what I mean in the other pictures.
The beautiful drow skin and hairstyle shown above are from The Uneek. Treebee Withnail, designer and head honcho of The Uneek always has something interesting in her shop, indeed, I’d be hard-pressed to find anything that’s not interesting there.
The hairstyle will be available at the 2010 Hair Fair (opening in a couple hours!). Better go buy it now, or hold your complaints if you miss out on it. You can see more colour options here.
This is the hairstyle (or lack of hairstyle?) that made me feel so giddy, just like Esther Williams in one of her synchronized swimming scenes. I love synchronized swimming, and participated on a team when I was a kid.
The swimcap hairstyle comes with optional dreads (crazy uneek dreads!), but I love it just the way it is. The swimcap comes in several colour options that you can check out here.
These wonderfully Uneek hairstyle are available at the Hair Fair 2010.
Hawk’s great swimsuit/slips is from Vitamen. Shang is wearing swimwear from Doux Couture.

If only there were more clothes for men in the grid wide hunts. Don’t get me wrong here, I love all the clothes thrown at women in the hunts.. but men need a little hunt love too.
Hawk was tickled when I tossed the list of steam hunt shops his way with a suggestion that he visit Schnaeppchen to review which shops had guy clothes for him to pick up, because no guy wants to weed through piles of dresses to find one pair of pants.
Kisses to all the designers and shop owners who are participating in the steam hunt, you folks have a special eye for design and some pretty far out ideas; but special kudos are in order for the designers who realise that guys like steam too.
In the picture above, Hawk and Shang are looking perfectly at home in the Wastelands in matching outfits from ABHinc. Even if you’re not a steampunk enthusiast, these outfits can take you into any Victorian themed sim with a simple switch of accessories.
The wonderful prizes from Denimore Industrial Design have an air of timelessness that takes on a steampunk feel with the addition of a few accessories. Want to wear it in a more up-to-date sim? Just take off the steamy chest cog.

Now, in case you were wondering what Hawk wears under his steam gear..
I stop in to CK once in a while to check out the great hairstyles. I’m glad I stopped into day, because they were some new (to me) gift items in the shop.
The hairstyle shown in this picture is form CK, it’s one of their Nano styles. The Nano styles are colour change with a HUD. Buy one of the hairstyles, and you can get a variety of colours just by using the HUD. Just think of it.. you can free up hundreds of spaces in your inventory! I love the idea of a HUD I can use for several hairstyle, it’s more value for my Linden dollar.
What I don’t like about the HUD is that CK has three different versions, and it’s a little difficult to understand which version is good for which hairstyles. I also don’t like the fact that if you buy a “lite” version of the HUD.. one with only a handful of colours.. you can’t get the original colour of the hair back if it’s not in the HUD colour range.
But over all it’s a good idea, and it would be nice to see more hair designers follow suit.
Also from CK isare the Cutie Winter outfit shown in the center, and the Curious dress on the left. These are free near the teleport point as you arrive in the shop.
On the right in the picture above are goodies from KR.
KR currently has several hunt prizes in the shop; some are from older hunts, so you might already have some of them if you’re an avid hunt participant.
The Elegant Party Room I’ve shown above is another hunt prize from KR. It includes some dances so that you don’t have to be a wallflower at your own party. Shang is wearing one of the beautiful gowns from Kouse’s Sanctum Ice Hunt I mentioned in the previous post.
January will be over in a few days, so hurry to Vitamen guys and pick up these hot underwear. This month’s gift is a three-pack: one great style, three yummy colours.
And girls, just so that you don’t feel left out, Sweet little has a sweet little dollabie gift for you at the Sweet Little shop.
