The Return of the Space Cowboy

The Return of the Space Cowboy 1

Inter-planetary good vibe zone… Somehow I seem to find a pattern in my blog posts about the Fantasy Faire 2013 because I find a lot of stuff I would usually not expect from a fair like this. Like this – hm – space suit. Or intergalactic stormtrooper outfit. Well it definitely has something Star Wars-ish as you can tell. Might be the white plastic armory or the futuristic cut. Definitely a unique piece of clothing again.

The thing that puzzeled me first was indeed the unusual cut of the top – with one arm down and the other one up ending in a face shield like of thing. Interesting for sure and definitely a futuristic design. The subtile plastic texturing of the armory parts supports the overall look definitely. The fabric parts have a woolen texturing and are available at the booth of 22769 ~ casual couture in 4 bold colors: purple, red, blue and green. The pants and the jacket can be purchased seperately.

What Lies Beneath

What Lies Beneath 1

If you think the Fantasy Faire is just about fairy wings and colorful merfolk you are definitely wrong. There is a lot of edgy stuff to find there that is dark, bizarre and disturbing – in a good way. ContraptioN is such a shop that offers artificial jars and devil grins. If you want to scare the hell out of your friends – you must pay the store a visit. Also it is fantastic for pictures and obviously for roleplaying also. Shown above is the coat and the mask that are the RLF items from ContraptioN. The coat comes in male and female standard sizing and what is even more disturbing – it has no arms. If your arms are hidden under the cloak or if your character has no arms at all – well Ii will leave that to your imagination. I combined the coat with the brocade leather pants from 22769 ~ casual couture – also available on Fantasy Faire.

The absolute showstopper from ContraptioN definitely is the mask. It is wonderful done and has a fantastic texturing and is also creepy – kind of Hannibal Lector meets the Pestilence Doctor. Nevertheless – it is a fantastic made item and as you can see the texturing of the leather is outstanding.

Fashionable Elf

Fashionable Elf 1

And one of the most awaited events within secondlife is on again. Welcome to the Fantasy Faire 2013! And like every year this years Fantasy Faire has a few surprises for you. There are first of all the sims that are – once again – stunning and wonderful. Unfortunately I can not show you any pictures of the sims since yesterday was a black day for SL anyways – means: I crashed with every picture I took. Not to mention rezzing stuff. So you have to believe me. Or even better – go to the faire and check the sims out by yourself. And also – like every year: The sims are up JUST ONE WEEK! After the 28th all sims will be gone for good.

Talking about surprises: Of course you will find shops you would expect in such an event. But this year there are some shops in the Fantasy Faire you definitely would not expect. Brands like FATEwear. FATEwear? The contemporary mesh clothing store for men? Yes – exactly them! And it is not a clash at all because creator Damien Fate obviously has a thing for the fantasy side of SL. First of all he is an elf by himself – not a bow and arrow kind of elf, more the t-shirt and denims kind of longear. And second Damien Fate made some wonderful fantasy related items every now and then in the past like i.e. the Desmond Coat. Also you can find in the booth at Titans Hollow Mermaid Avatars and also Zombie Bodyparts.

For the Fantasy Faire – which is a RFL-Event – FATEwear crafted three complete outfits totally matching the theme. Shown here is the Elven Hunting Garb that comes in male standard sizing and an optional cloak. And the boots are also included in the pack. It is needless to say that the movement of the clothing is flawless. I was especially impressed by the subtile texturing and the richness of the virtual fabric. It is a wonderful gear that definitely should not be missed in every roleplay inventory. And it definitely is a keeper.

Another shop you might not expect at an event like the Fantasy Faire is 22769 ~ casual couture. Yet again a casual fashion shop that usually has no connection to the Fantasy scene. Nevertheless you will find some surprising items in their booth also like these elven ears I am wearing today. There are two versions available and I am wearing the pointy elven ears for the pictures. The ears come of course with an easy to handle HUD and alpha layer for the avatar ears.

FATEwear and 22769 ~ casual couture – two shops that prove that the borders between contemporary, casual clothing and fantasy related appearence are thankfully blurry and floating.

Mancave

mancave 1

Greetings. The Mens Dept entered the March round – and as always many brilliant designs and stuff to be found here for a snip. Not only clothing and accessory, but also furniture and decor. But let us start with my todays look: the hair comes from Uw.st and is called “Prince”. Uw.st are the first time in the Mens Dept and they even went with two different hairstyles. The asymmetric shirt I am wearing comes from the guys from 22769 and it is available in 4 different styles. The pants are from Razorblade Jacket. The great thing about those pants is that they come with a HUD – so you can change the color by one mouseclick. My shoes are from [ JP ] .dsg and are the Varial Sneakers – also controlled by HUD.

Like said above the Mens Dept. also holds a lot of furniture with men in mind. So if you want to decorate your mancave you should pay the Mens Dept. a visit. The skybox I shot my pictures today is from 22769 ~ [bauwerk] and it is their share for The Challenge TUDOR (I have written about The Challenge already here.). It is the perfect place for a single man in sl cause it has two rooms and I especially love the ceiling details and the warm colors in it.

The wonderful modern and quirky Pedal Lamp comes from [bauwerk] and also the Corduroy Armchair UK is from [bauwerk]. The chair is available in the Mens Dept. The case is from [HANDverk] and it is the Oz Relic display case from the Arcade.

In my bedroom I decided to use the wonderful quirky bed from L&K Prefabs. The bed “morning wood” (yes, you have read right) is the item from L&K Prefabs for above mentioned The Challenge and it is awesome. I really love the idea with the tree and the nightlight. The clothes rack comes from *bbqq* who also joined the Mens Dept for the first time with this item. The wall art again comes from the Gallery Gift Shop and is by Chiana Oh “To Another World”. And the chair again comes from [HANDverk]. The privacy screen with the vitage girls is available in the Mens Dept also and it is from [kusshon].

Basalt

Basalt 1

I am way late to show you some goodies from the Mens Dept and other locations. When it rains it pours – so people say: after the problems with my internet I faced some RL personal trouble that kept me away from blogging for far too long. But well – I am back (again) and here we go:

The Mens Dept February Round has some gems for you to get for a bargain. And as always you find at the venue a mix from clothing to furniture. Spotlight on the Shell Chair from [HANDverk]. Like everything from [HANDverk] the chair is a modern classic piece you just do not want to miss. It is breathing a certain 60ies/70ies style and the simplicity of the chair is marvellous. The chair comes with 7 animations and is available in black and in red. The shirt I am wearing is one of the items from 22769 ~ casual couture. The doubletee Pi is a layered shirt – or in other words: a tee over a longsleeve. It looks kinda indie/skater to me and is definitely a keeper. There are two other shirts to find at the venue also. And also the necklace comes from the current Mens Dept. It is from KOSH and it is called Pivot Necklace. The necklace comes in 3 different styles and there are also matching rings.

Dura released a new hair two days ago. Boy*41 is a more modern cut with shaved neck – so you need a hairbase for this one. The skin I am wearing is from the Body Co. Sale at The Warehouse.

And finally – the skybox: The prefab is one of the new releases from GARDEN OF DREAMS. The “Showcase Set” contains – amongst 3 other scenes – this one called Basalt. I absolutely love the minimalism in this one. And in my opinion it works also brilliant as a small shop. The set is full mesh and has a Landimpact of 12 – so it definitely is a fantastic shell for everything you can imagine.
