Splish Splash

Splish Splash

It is funny – the colder it is becoming outside the more I tend to take my clothes off in my blogposts. Well – this time for a good reason: there is a new event in second life, brought to you by CHIC – and it is called FAIR. And it is – a fair! But not only another fair for stuff in second life because Fair equals of course for sales exhibition, but also to fair pricing. And the interesting part at FAIR is that every designer has a hour of a day as inspiration for their new releases at FAIR.

HISpose are part of the opening round of FAIR – and they got 6am. The item is this neat bathtube with a lot of details and 5 easy to adjust poses (most of them shown here). What I especially like about the bathtube is, that it is not a “girly” kind of furniture – HISpose added enough details to suit it to every man. And for the poses: yep – that could be so me.

Please note that FAIR is opening tomorrow!

List of stuff:

Feet: SLink – Mens Natural Barefeet

Prob and poses: HISpose – HISbathtime (for FAIR – opening tomorrow!)

Well gentlemen – better do not plan anything for this weekend in second life because the 49 L$ Sale for Dudes is back! And one of the items you can get for a snip is my hair (with sun visor) from Atro Patena. The visor can change the color and the hair is available in 4 maintones – each including 5 subtones.

The neat sunglasses are from The Gallery Gift Shop and are the share of NYU for the current round. Available as chin and mouth-attachment and of course cou can costumize it by mousclick – the top and the frames can be colored individually.

Homestory

Bedroom and Bath

Happy Sunday everyone. Missed my blog post about houses and furniture? Well good news is here: you will get an overdose today. And you will only see bits and pieces of myself since the main actor indeed is the fabulous new skybox LONDON Appartment from [AF]. And since this skybox is huge (but only has a Land Impact of 58 thanks to mesh) I decided to show you room by room, making a little homestory about how I start my day.

So – obviously we begin in the bedroom (above left). I just crawled out of my snuggly bed from Scarlet Creative. The Noelle Modern Bed comes with multiple poses for single and couple usage and what I like most about it is the fact that you can actually move the poses to your needs. The books and the lamp left to the bed are also from Scarlet Creative and they show so much love for detail. The rounded shelf is from [bauwerk] and will become released soon. And the candles are a gift from Designer Prims.

So I am on my way to the bathroom. And I am wearing the Silk Flare Pants in autumn bleed which are the huntgift for the Autumn Effect Hunt from 22769 ~ casual couture. And talking about gifts. The washing table in the bath is the new Groupgift from the same store. It comes with three animations (washing hands, shaving and brushing teeth). It is the first piece of furniture I know that works with the new Linden Labs Functions like temporary attachments. Because the washing table attaches the razor or the toothbrush to your hands, but they do not clutter your inventory.

After doing my morning stuff I relax a bit in the Retro Bubble Chair (again from Scarlet Creative). And then it is time for getting dressed and a breakfast to start my day…
List of stuff:
Bed: Scarlet Creative – Noelle Modern Bed
Books (on Bed Shelf): Scarlet Creative
Lamp: Scarlet Creative – Adler Lamp
Ballchair: Scarlet Creative – Bubble Chair
Rug: Scarlet Creative – Adler Rug
Candles:  Designer Prims – Candle Set Cream
Shelf: [bauwerk] – curved shelf (soon to be released)
Art: Gabrielle Swindlehurst – Fields Of Gold – Five (for the Gallery Gift Shop)
Books: BoatHouse – Book Stack 5
Washing Table: 22769 ~ casual couture – Good Morning Gorgeous (Groupgift)
Plants: Scarlet Creative – Love Leaf Jug Plant
Pants: 22769 ~ casual couture – Silk Flared Pants autumn bleed (for the Autumn Effect Hunt)

Homestory Hallway

One of the things that really amaze me about the LONDON Appartment is the hallway and I am sure you will love it as much as I do. As you can see in the panoramic shot (the middle one) the texturing is gorgeous and not too heavy.

So – I found my denims and my jumper and are on the way to the living room and kitchen wich are downstairs. One thing about design in secondlife: there are classics within secondlife. Like furniture that was created in admiration of RL designs and I absolutely love that. But there are pieces of furniture that became already classic pieces WITHIN secondlife. And one of these rare items is for sure the Asylum Octo Lovec Chair from LISPs Bazaar. It is strange, it is quirky and it is a beautiful piece of art coming out of secondlife. Everyone needs that chair (or another one out of this series). Another wonderful piece of interior design is the Light Tree from ICONIC you can see in the middle shot in the first floor.

As you maybe know I come from Germany – and around here it is common that we a) have our wastebins in the hallway (in huge, old buildings) and especially for students like I am b) that we do not leave our bikes on the street.

List of stuff:
Chair: [bauwerk] – cube chair leather (soon to be released)
Potato: [bauwerk] – rattan sitting bag indian spice (soon to be released)
Shoes (foreground): :::GABRIEL::: – Driving Shoes Brown (Groupgift)

Wastebins: Urban Spirit – Domestic Wheelie Bins (MP Freebie)
Outfit: 22769 ~ casual couture – Autumn Outfit (for the Gallery Gift Shop)

Homestory Kitchen

My mother always said: the heart of every home is the kitchen. And wo am I to disagree. There are a lot of kitchens in secondlife, but this one is definitely my favorite. It comes from Trompe Loeil and is the current item for Collabor88. First – like everything that Trompe Loeil releases – the texturing and the overall look and feel is flawless. What really impressed me a lot was the set up of this kitchen. With the “kitchen planner” – wich is also the rezzer for the kitchen – it is so easy to move the complete furniture to the right spot. One click install – this kitchen definitely fulfills this task. Of course the kitchen comes with cute animations and of course there is a version available with NSFW animations also. The kitchen is available in green, orange, purple – and shown here teal.

Noticed the hot water maker on the kitchen? This is a gift that can be found at the Gallery Gift Shop and it is – like the whole event – way cute.

List of stuff:
Kitchen: Trompe Loeil – Timeless Kitchen (for Collabor88)
Hot Water Maker: Gift at the Gallery Gift Shop

Homestory Livingroom

Finally breakfast. I am sitting on the Adler Dining Table from Scarlet Creative – and it is way cute. First of all I love to combine rustic furniture with way modern things and second the table rezzes different meals – from breakfast to sushi – there is everything you can dream of. The Classic Fireplace also comes from Scarlet Creative and the drawers are the plain version from the last cycle of the Mens Dept. by floorplan. The skyline picture is again a gift you can get at the Gallery Gift Shop. And the lamps are a freebie from nordari.

It is time to get prepared for work. But first I rest a bit on my new won Baroque Bench Popular at the Arcade Gatcha Event. The bench – again – comes from Trompe Loeil and it is super cute and it comes with 15 different animations. My students bag – where i carry my notebook and books and all student stuff with me comes from NYU and is from L’accessoires. Look at the detailing on this bag – isn’t it wonderful? Finally the water dispenser was the huntgift from Nudolu for the Gallery Gift Shop Anniversary hunt.

Well – that was a lot! I hope I showed you enough of the fantastic LONDON Apartement by [AF] that you start drooling already. Please note that I did some minor modifications on the skybox since I removed the panorama view over London for lighting purposes.

Table and Chairs: Scarlet Creative – Adler Dining Table
Lamps: nordari – Recycling Lamps

Pop Art

Pop Art Casquette

Welcome weekend – and if you have no plans for today let me recommend L’accessoires to you. Soooo – you think accessories are only for girls and there are only a bunch of earrings and necklaces and – well – girly kind of stuff? You are wrong! First of all fashion simply does not work without that little extra and second there is a lot of boys stuff to find. Well lets start with the Casquette, wich is french for cap or hat.

AZOURY are offering a wide range of Casquettes at L’accessoires and what I love most about them is the quirky design. The ear and the back flaps are folding out like petals and you can not only choose your favorite color for the boondoggle, but also between a plain, leatherish, version of the Casquette and an argyle one. Each style is 249 L$. The Casquettes are unisex – so if you have a bad hair day or want to pimp your looks – check in at L’accessoires.

Hat: AZOURY – Casquette (for L’accessoires)

Eyes: Poetic Colors – Ocean Colors “sea weed” (for the Mens Dept.)
