Don’t fence me in

dont_fence_me_in_1

The job as photographer or blogger in secondlife would be so much harder without poses and probs. I often use my AO for pictures which gives the photos on the one hand a kind of natural look cause you capture a picture from a movement. On the other hand you need a lot of patience for shooting from your animations. So therefor poses of course are essential and save you a lot of time – even better when they are well thought and natural looking. HISpose just released a new prob called HISfence. A barb wire fence with extremely well done poses. The prob itself is very nicely done and works also as extra on an urban themend sim. Each of the six poses can become adjusted seperate and the fence works from the backside and also from the front. Brilliant idea and I hope that HISpose is doing a couple version of the prob also.

The brown deer Herman’s loose sewater from Tee*fy is jet another wonderful mesh item from the current Mens Dept. It is kind of bulky and sloppy looking which shows – once again – the incredible possibilities of mesh clothing. Imagine doing that with sculpt attachements – it is kind of impossible. The sweater – and also the black chinos from 22769 ~ casual couture – come in male mesh standard sizing.

Running Late

running_late_1

I always try to be in time – in fact I start to panik when I realize that I can not make it to a fix set date. Well that is part of my personality I guess – and this morning my worst nightmare happened: the alarm clock ran out of power so I slept in. Big time! So well – hurry up, putting clothes on, brushing teeth and out of my appartement. I had a strange feeling when I was speeding with my bike to University but noticed hours later that I put my boxers on the other way around… well… one of these days…

Thank god this can not happen in second life. And especially not with mesh clothing. One click and it matches perfectly. Next to teleports this definitely would be a real life worthy invention. For todays look again I took parts from the Mens Dept. The beige loose pants are from [Sheep Door] and the black polo shirt is from 22769 ~ casual couture. And this is something that I do like about standard sizing. Even tho both clothings come from different designers you can combine them without any effort. Just the right thing for lazy guys like me.

I spiced the look up with the wonderful bag from NYU and the star and skull bangles from :sey.

Beachwear

bathing_season_1

Summer in RL means summer in secondlife also. Strange enough, cause somewhere always is summer in secondlife. But nevertheless: the bathing season has begun. And it is perfect timing, cause what is the best clothing to showcase a skin? Right, beachwear. So let us start with the skin first: Belleza has joined the Mens Dept. with a special edition of the Ewan Skin. And you can see it in all different views in this blogpost. To tell something completely new about the mens line of Belleza is simply impossible – the skin is, of course, flawless. It gives me a bit older appearance then my regular skin, but I kinda like it a lot. What I personally love about the Belleza men skins is that they are not uber-buffed. So you do not look like a bodybuilder with this one. And an absolute plus always with Belleza is the fine definition of the face. And now comes the best part: you can get the skin for just 150 L$ at the Mens Dept! And of course demos are available.

Another major brand in SL is Miamai – famous for their quirky but always wearable designs. I absolutely fell in love with the new Swimmwear Collection. The swim trunks are mesh and you can either choose between retro patterns like above on the Aron Shorts or vibrant colors (shown below).

bathing_season_2

The Steve Shorts from Miamai are also mesh and have a more boarderish look. Perfect for every kind of pool- or beach party and definitely one of the must haves this summer. The Little Pool House comes from Designer Prims and is the current Groupgift (the Group is free to join). It is a small beach house with pool and two rooms that – typical for the designs of Designer Prims – float into each other. A brilliant prefab – especially as free gift!

bathing_season_3

Here you can have a close look on the face of the Ewan Skin from Belleza and also of course on the rigging of the Hawaii Blue Steve Shorts from Miamai since the pose I choose is rather extreme. But as you can see – no distortions or spikes. The shorts just fit perfectly.

In the last picture finally I show you something from the inside of the Little Pool House. And here comes another strength about the layouts of Designer Prims: the prefabs are not overtextured or convulted. It leaves you many room for your own personality and ideas. On the left I am wearing the Nylon Melon Steve Shorts and on the right another find from the Mens Dept.: the Pool Party Briefs from Lazybum with sculpted bulge and drawstrings. The beanbags are from [kusshon] and are also available at the Mens Dept.

It is one of of the common items from e.volve and available in different styles. Today I’m wearing the one named autumn. And, with the sun is shinning I have put my hotpants on.

BBQ

BBQ_1

Hot Dog anyone? And the steaks also look like they are well done by now. Summer is definitely BBQ time – and I guess everywhere around the world. As soon as the weather is getting better you can see folks wandering to parks or to the seaside with their grills and cool bags. And nothing beats cooking under the plain sky. *Funky*Junk* not only offer the grillmaster and a cool bag as item for the Mens Dept – they also have a picnic table (with meals included), a lounge chair and a complete BBQ-patio – and it is all kinds of cute. Even more – it is the perfect item to have some fun with your friends and to have a chat while you enjoy the pixelbeer and virtual chicken wings.

My BBQ look is also from the Mens Dept. The cropped chinos are from DROP and the black note tank is from [LV]. Around my neck you can see the inverted version of the KOSH Epiphany necklace. And also my hair can be found there. It comes from [Atro Patena].

BBQ_2

And also Insufferable Dastard joined again the Mens Dept. ID brought us many wonderful made mesh eyes and also in this round there are beautiful ones you can choose from. I am wearing the solid green ones but you also can get some heterochromic ones which is kind of special for an unique look. Again a fantastic idea!
