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.
List of stuff:
Hair: Dura – Dura-Boy*41 (black)
Pants: Razorblade Jacket – Hoon Faded Cords
Sneaker: [ JP ]dsg. – Sneaker Ventura
Scene: Garden of Dreams – Showcase Set Basalt (mesh | LI 12)
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).
List of stuff:
Hair: Dura – Dura-Boy 07 (black)
Jumper: bleak – Nordic Sweater Slate (for the Mens Dept.)
Shoes: Adjunct – Jacob’s Ladder Boots Crude Oil Black
Bench, Coffee Table, Tea-Set, add. Decorations: BoatHouse – Boathouse Advent Calendar Items
Insomnia sometimes hits me – especially when I have a test the other day, or exams or something else important. No matter what I do to calm myself down – as soon as I lie in bed I am wide awake again. So when I went to FAIR and saw the “sleepless bed” from flowey & art dummy, especially with the poses included, I just had to take it, because this all looked way too familiar. The sleepless bed has a Land Impact of 7 and holds 11 animations including a reading one with book.
The Club Chair in my back is from Trompe Loeil and it is currently on sale. Hurry up because the sale ends 28. October! The Club Chair is available in 8 different colors and holds also 8 neat animations. And what I especially like about the chair is that it is not a supercute girly kind of furniture. It matches perfectly to boy rooms also.
Talking about rooms: L&K Prefabs released this adorable skybox for the new round of the Home And Garden Designer Warehouse. “The Attic” is a supercute sky home with flawless textures and it is 100% mesh. The Land Impact is 86 and I like about the skybox that it is copy and mod – so with some building skills you can alter it also to your needs. And again – I really love the texturing on this one – it just looks so real to me. It definitely has style and flair galore.
The Photographers Lamp is from [HANDverk] and is available in the current Mens Department. The design is a true classic and it is one of these special pieces that give your virtual home that special extra touch. This one should not be missed!
My everyday skin is – as you probably know, because I often tell – Toban from KENTO. And I was so happy to learn that KENTO finally released a new skin: “Preston” comes in 4 different color tones (from above left to below right T1 – T4) and each package includes the skin, the skin with teeth, eyebrow shaper and eyes. It has been a while since KENTO released the last skin – but the designer definitely used that time well because you can see on Preston the progress and the subtile shading. With skins in general there are always some critical points like seams on the hands i.e. and I did not notice one single seam on the skin. So this is definitely a high quality skin for a fair price.
In general you should visit KENTO anyways if you are looking for a new skin because all older skins are on sale now! And if this got you all excited – there is even more, because I spotted some “Coming Soon” placeholders in the store and this can only mean: KENTO will release some new skins soon. But in the meantime: Preston is definitely a top state of the art skin.
The white pearl undies are the current Freebie at VITAMEN and I am always surprised with what ideas the designer comes up. When I look in my undies drawer I see a lot of boxers but VITAMEN truly pushes the underwear fashion forward. And the freebie comes not only in white but also in gold, is extremely well done and textured – and you can not ask for anything more.
List of stuff:
Skin: KENTO – Preston T2
Underwear: VITAMEN – Monthly Freebie
Chair: Trompe Loeil – Club Chair White (on sale til 28. October)
