If you are looking for cute winter and christmas things in secondlife obviously now is the right time. Creators have again outdone themselfes this year to bring some really fine products for your avatar and for your homes to the grid. And there are many places where you can get that certain x-mas-feeling – even for a bargain. So since the month is a few days old your first stop definitely should be the Mens Dept. I got myself – again – new eyes there. This time from Poetic Colors who also offer a selection of winter colored eyes. Today I am wearing the icicle ones. The nordic jumper I am wearing is from bleak – it is available in different styles and as you can see in the pictures it looks way real.

Another brilliant find in the December Mens Dept. is the rather taxidermic Antler Christmas Tree from Cheeky Pea. It definitely is outstanding and lovely made and way special. Also the carton box deer head over the chimney is from the Mens Dept. and comes from [HANDverk] (available in two different styles). I have to say that I cheated a bit by adding the festive bow from the “12 Days of Christmas” Calendar from Trompe Loeil underneath it. And to sum the Mens Dept. up: todays house is also from the Mens Dept. and comes from Deco. The Port Richmond Skyloft has an unbeatable quality and gives you enough room for decorating and furnishing. And the denims are the item from [AB]

If you are looking for christmas or winter stuff the “Relay For Life Christmas Expo” is definitely worth a visit. Not only the fairground is lovely build but you also can find some wonderful stuff there also. I got myself the “Festive Chandelier” from Hanaya which is way cute. You can change the color of the ornaments by mouseclick – also it has three different light functions. The silverish wreath is again a gift from the “12 Days of Christmas” Calendar and so is the Noel Blocks at the chimney. Nearly everything else I used comes from the adorable Christmas Calendar from BoatHouse and I really have to say that the Fireplace Tools are my favorite kind of decorative pieces because it is lovely made and just gives the certain extra to the sl homes with fireplace (and we all know – there are a lot of them).

Today the Mens Dept. finally opens – and it is time for me to show you some more of the awesomeness that awaits you at the number one spot for contemporary male fashion and items within second life. Poetic Colors are one of the shops that provide round for round high quality eyes at the venue. This time they choose “Autumn” as theme for the new collection of eyes – and as always they are wonderfully done. Also you get a huge variety of each eye color in every pack. Of course the system eyes, but also a lot of mesh eyes with many options like brightness and size of the eye texture. The eyes can be of course also become resized by mouseclick. Shown above is the greenish “october rain” mesh eyes.

I was very happy to see that also KOSH joined the Mens Department again. KOSH offer a necklace and a matching bracelet called “Copec” and first of all it looks wonderful and second you really can get it for a steal at the Mens Dept. The necklace and the bracelet are available in three different styles: antique (shown above), old and silver.

My t-shirt is a gift from the subscriber group of FATEwear – I found it this morning in my inventory. And my pants are the Painter Pants from [Sheep Door] in beige, again available at the Mens Dept.

Another thing I simply adore about the Mens Dept. is that you not only get great and high quality fashion at the venue, but also furniture and homes especially designed for men. Todays blogpost was taken in the brilliant Fishtown Skyloft from DECO. The skyloft has 66 prims and is mod – so you can alter the room divider like I did to match it to your furniture. The skyloft has one huge windowfront and a second one with smaller windows. Plus the loft has a garage-door that leads you to a little balcony.

The trunks come from :::LITHIUM::: and are first of all a great decoration item but also have 6 sitting animations (3 male and 3 female). And of course you also can find the trunks at the Mens Dept.

The art in the background is from the LND Gallery and Hangout I blogged about two days ago. The portraits are from Chuck Close and prove that art can be man-ly also. The sofa I am sitting on comes from ~BAZAR~ and it has this brilliant marketplace-browsing animation included (with notebook included). There are also of course relaxing poses and a reading pose with book.

Talking about furniture – you can find great pieces for not so much money or even for free, when you know where to look. Many furniture stores have special marketplace deals or offer gifts and group gifts in their stores. The decor vases (3rd picture right) are in the same set from ~BAZAR~ like the sofa and all together it is a gift you can find in the store. And even more: The breakfast table with chair (3rd picture left) with rezable breakfast is again a gift from the same store. The wooden screen is from *TDS* and if you are looking for things to spice up your virtual homes I strongly recommend to visit the store since they offer well done furniture and decor pieces for a snip.

There is no doubt that the current round of the Mens Dept. is one of the best so far – you can get so much wonderful stuff there. And since nothing at the Mens Dept. is over 150 L$ you also make a snip and your virtual wallet will not be exhausted after a shopping spree.

The preppy jumper comes from [Sheep Door] and is another good example about how creative creators work with the new medium mesh these days. The jumper can be worn with and without shirt. And again the shirt can not be worn alone. But I so love the overall look of this and also the folding of the jumper is way realistic. I chose for todays look the cropped shirt navy. Other colors and demos are available at the Mens Dept.

The bermuda shorts are from 22769 ~ casual couture and are the current huntgift in the Finding FabFree Hunt. The gift also contains an open shirt for men which is not shown here. And also my todays haircut is from the Finding FabFree Hunt and is the gift from ChiChicky.

List of stuff:
Hair: ChiChickie! – Tyler (Finding FabFree Hunt)
Jumper: [Sheep Door] Cropped Shirts Navystripe (with collar) (for the Mens Dept.)
Shorts:  22769 ~ casual couture – [homme] Bermuda Shorts Creme (Finding FabFree Hunt)
Furniture: [DECO] – Mumbai Ottoman (for the Mens Dept.)

In case you wonder about where I took my todays pictures in: it is the fantastic Mumbai Sky Loft from [DECO] which also can be found in the current Mens Dept. (and also the ottoman stool from the first picture). The name of this more then awesome prefab tells you it is a skybox – and it works pretty well as skybox indeed – but on the other hand it also works as a ground house as you can see in the picture. This is something I love about the prefab – that it works both ways. The Mumbai Sky Loft also has a entrance door for this purpose – and if you will use it as skybox you can either rezz a platform with gardening in front of it or build yourself a balcony.

Anyways – the texturing in this prefab is wonderful – rich earthlike tones, very sophisticated wood textures and a lot of neat things to find. The skybox is a maisonette prefab – there is a gallery also as second floor reachable via stairs.

I mixed for the interior many things I gained over the last few days in my inventory – but somehow they came together naturally. There is – first of all – the ICONIC sofa from Apple Fall which is also an items from the current Mens Dept. And this one is really a surprise because it holds so many poses in it – i believe even more poses then in my posestand i use from time to time. You find single and coupleposes galore and also the look of this one is really something I want to have in my RL also. I spiced the furniture up with some stuff also from Apple Fall from the current Round of FaMESHed – the Vogue frame and the hemp rug.

The shelf behind me – or in better words: the bookworm ladder – is one of the items from floorplan for the Mens Dept. And I just love it. Not only that I love books and own many of them in RL, but the idea is simple and brilliant. The lamp is a new release from { {BSD Design Studio} } and the plant is – again – a gift in the Finding FabFree Hunt and comes from [PP].

List of stuff:
Sofa: [AF] – ICONIC Sofa (for the Mens Dept.)
Frame: [AF] – VOGUE Frame (for FaMESHed September)
Carpet: [AF] - HEMP Rug Branches(for FaMESHed September)
Shelf: floorplan. – bookworm ladder / neutral (for the Mens Dept.)
Plant: [PP] – Cactus Container Garden (Finding FabFree Hunt)
Lamp: { { BSD Designs Studio } } – post modern 3legs lamp L
