The Challenger

The Challenger 1

Happy weekend. There is a new fun event within secondlife called “The Challenge”. So what is this all about? It is a group of Home and Garden builder who decided that it would be nice to become challenged by random themes each month to craft at least one item according to the theme. And of course the themes are not necessarily that obvious. So for the first round the creators got “Tudor Style” and they did a brilliant job with their items.

First of all: Tudor is not a really common building style within SL – so it is nice that people decided to bring it inworld. And second – even if the creators worked around the theme you still can tell that it is an item from their store. Like i.e. this Tudor Bench from EoD. It is available in three different options/colors and it is massivly filled with single and couple animations. It is a wonderful piece of furniture that – as you can see – not only matches history themed rooms and homes.

Another wonderful item to be found within “The Challenge” is the Rhys Pergola from BRENO. And again – this is indeed Tudor style but also fits nearly every kind of sim you can imagine. Also it comes with and without curtains. So if you need something for your virtual garden or park – you definitely should check back with BRENO. Michigans Shack even crafted a complete Tudor house you can see in the background. And yes – it is big, but wonderful. The Tudor Mansion has 6 rooms on the first floor and 5 rooms on the second floor and makes a fantastic home for SL familys.

The thing that thrills me about “The Challenge” is the variety of items and also – like said above – that they are according to the theme but that they are also brilliant stand alone items that have not just become built for the one purpose, but are an addition to the offers of the stores. And last but not least: most of “The Challenge” items are having a discount in the first week of release – and if i calculated right this will be until 6. March 2013. So better hurry up!

On the Beach

The February Mens Dept. has some great skins to find for a bargain. I already showed you the new FRUK Skin yesterday – today it is the special edition of the Jacob Skin from Belleza. Wonderfully made and rich on details and I especially love the tone of the skin – not to dark and not to fair. Definitely worth to check out. Also from the Mens Dept. are the Arabasque Briefs from Lazybum. They come in six different styles, with prim bulge and drawstrings.

Poses are essential for pictures within secondlife. Poseology offer the Donovan Pose Set also at the Mens Dept. and these are very casual and great to use for any occasion (as shown below).

BRENO just have released the Corfu Hammock you can see behind me in above pictures. The hammock has three different fabric textures (guy thing – shown here, pure and Santorini) and also three different wood textures (bleached, cherry -shown here and dark). Also it has seven single and nine couple poses included. It is a lovely item for each beach themed sim or also for your secondlife garden since it is so versatile to fit nearly every style.

The sneaker I am wearing are the new release from [ JP ] dsg. The Varial Sneaker can become controlled by a HUD with size and color and are extremely detailed and just so real looking. And there is a thing I really want to add: I really love the way [ JP ] dsg. are setting up their HUDs – first it is really understandable by first sight and you do not have to click through a bunch of submenues to get what you want and second the design of the HUD is everytime a piece of art by its own.

Good news first: my internet is back! And finally I can catch up on things I want to show you. I already told you about the new kid in furniture town [bauwerk] yesterday – today I want to show you one of the quirkiest items that can be found in the store: The “Somewhere Beyond the Sea” chair. The octopus chair is fantastic modeled and looks just so real. It is available in 4 different colors (black, cobalt, red and shown here white) and is just 4 prims (LI 8). Definitely not an everydays chair – but a total eyecatcher in your virtual home. The chair comes with 10 sitting/lying poses – and yeah, you heard right: you can also snuggle with the tentacles of the kraken. [bauwerk] also have the chair in hot pink in the currently running Four Walls Hunt.

The set I took my pictures in is from Scarlet Creative – and it is a freebie on the marketplace. The “Art Cube” was designed for an art show of William Weaver – and it is brilliant. A wonderful backdrop for photos with a neat modern look. The sneakers I am wearing are the new release from [JP]dsg. They are HUD driven – so you can change literally every part of the shoes in color and texture. And I love that – instead of cluttering the inventory with multiple wearing options you just have to attach the HUD to have as many different sneakers as you want to.

Reila Skins just released the seductive Romeo Skin I am wearing today. Romeo is a quite young looking skin and I love the subtile shading of the cheek bones on this one. The skin is available in 4 different tones – and you also can get beard tattoo layers especially made for this skin. So if you are looking for a new you in the new year – check this skin out.

Not what you expected when you read the titel of this post, right? Anyways – just a quick one before I run to the uni again. The new Mens Dept. will open on the 4th and it is my pleasure to give you a preview of some of the items you can get there: like this turtleneck from [Sheep Door]. It will be available in three different colors and also in three different kind of striped patterns and I really like how the turtleneck goes over your chin and mouth. The eyes are mesh eyes from .ID. who have a series of Ice Eyes as offer in the Mens Dept. Shown here are the green ones. The eyes have a really lovely subtile texturing and I will be stuck with them for some time I guess.

And for the horns: the X-mas Aries Horns are the gift from the 22769 ~ casual couture Advent Calendar for December, 3rd. That means TODAY and today only. You can turn each candle on and off and it is just a funny and lovely accessory for everyone who loves kind of quirky stuff. So better hurry up to get this fantastic gift.

Having A Ball

Having A Ball

Busy, busy, busy – so much stuff is going on in secondlife and I really have to catch up – especially since I took a week off from blogging to play a bit RL. But anyways – let’s get started with L’Accessoires. The November Round just has started and again there are adorable items to be found. And this time many of the accessories are rather unisex then strict female. These shades are from BOOM and are called “Begas Shades”. They are available in five different colors and of course as fatpack also at the venue. The neck candy comes from REMY. The Beau Tassels come in many different colors and also in sliver and gold and also of course as fatpack. And I must say – i really love those – they are super dandy.

The silk flared pants I am wearing are one of many items 22769 ~ casual couture offer at the just started “Around The World” Fair and I really love the design of them. First of all they look way comfi and second it is something different for men then just jeans, chinos and shorts. I will show you some more stuff from “Around The World” in further blogposts and I am damn sure that Mondra also will because there can be found some adorable dresses. But for today – if you are looking for something different and cozy – get these silk flared pants from 22769.

If you read my blogposts for a time now you know that I have something like an “unofficial” hobby: to showcase the classic SL designs in furniture. And one of these pieces is definitely the Ball Chair from AKEYO. AKEYO – more known for their animations and dances – offer furniture, plants and a small line of clothing also. In that case I think it is appropriate to say that AKEYO is an old school merchant within SL. This is not a bad thing. The creator just does what he is up to and if you look at all his creations in a row there is still something like a line that connects all of them.
The Ball Chair is very Retro SciFi and I truly love the overall look of it. It also comes with a HUD that can change the color of the chair in all colors of the rainbow. And the eight included animations are – of course – extremely well done and lovely. If you have a thing for more modern furniture this one is definitely a must have. And anyways – the Ball Chair is just too much fun.
