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.

A few days ago I blogged a preview for the new Reila Skin Noah. Today I learned on the Reila Skins Webpage that the skin finally is released. Noah comes in different options for facial hair (shown below) and also comes with tattoo layers for body hair (like in above picture) and teeth and also the shape (not shown here). What I really love about the skin is that it is a unique creation. I really like how the face looks on my shape and it appears to me a bit oriental what I absolutely like. This skin is definitely a keeper.

I went to The Outlet Sales Room today which is a pretty new event in second life. You find very well known brands there like Trompe Loeil or Barnsworth Anubis – and you also find Garden Of Dreams there who offer a Dreamscene for a steal. Usually the Dreamscenes are between 1000 – 2000 L$ which is an absolute accurate price for the excellent texturing and crafting work. The Dreamscene “Tibet” is at The Outlet Sales Room available for just 100L$ and I strongly recommend getting this one.

First of all you have a brilliant themed skybox with many possibilities. “Tibet” is more or less a relaxation enviroment with a huge bath in the center and sitting possibilities around with many different poses also (single and couple). So it is a tibetian themed spa when your second life is getting too hectic. I love the subtile sound design also – so if you enter the bath you hear the water. Leafes are floating around the enviroment – but not too much that it looks unrealistic. Indeed this is one of the most fine assets of Garden Of Dreams with every of their creations: they create a comprehensible place with every scenery they do.

Next you learn the best about the Dreamscene concept of Garden Of Dreams. Because – even if the scene works as permanent skybox (that is included) – you also receive the “Bubble-Rezzer” for the Dreamscene. If you do not want to rez the scene permanently you can just rez the bubble on the floor, sit in it (and you also can take friends with you) and it transports you to the temp rezzed scene where you can stay as long as you wish. Even better – you can load the Bubble-Rezzer with as much Dreamscenes as you like so you can even swap between scenes.

And finally: the whole skybox is copy and mod. You can even rez the scene on the ground if you want to have a tibetian themed sim and alter each part of it. If we talk about multi funktionality of buildings in second life – this one definitely sets a mark. So you definitely should get this one.

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.)

So – a lot of hunting and sales events in this blogpost – I guess that should keep you busy on this Sunday. Read you soon…

50 Styles of Blue

for credits please see below

Happy Humpday to all of you !

Today I found a little time to blog, and not fighting with damn graphic-drivers.

So, I use this chance to show you some of the goodies you can find at the currently running Swimming Pool Blue Hunt, organised by Monochrome Hunts. In this Hunt every Huntgift costs you 5L$ – but you find all the items, with hints and SLurls to the shops displayed on the hintpage for the Swimming Pool Blue Hunt. Hope you enjoy this Hunt as much as I have done before.

Let us start with the finds, I want to show you in todays blogpost: ready for new interior? The this great couch from MM(home). The sofa comes prefilled with 8 sitting animations -for two avatars- and can become adjusted by menu. With only 12 Prims, it is not to primmy so it should fit into your home!

My todays look is combined from YoPulga and 22769 ~ casual couture.

for credits please see below

Let us start with the unique top. As you can see, one arm is covered and the other not. This gives you an intresting shape, and it fits to a lot of situations where you can wear your own and creative look. The top comes in mesh female standard sizing.

The pants I’m wearing are from 22769, yes I was searching for the huntgift and ended up shopping there (again – *sigh*). But, thank god I found out after finding the blue glowing palette, that they give away in the Swimming Pool Hunt my trousers in a lightblue color. But, that didn’t match to my todays look so I choose to wear the black one, wich is available from different colors they offer for just 130L$.

My shoes are from SLink and available on Vintage Fair 2012. I have blogged another color option already here, so please refer to that blogpost for more information.

The art you see on my wall today is also a gift from the Swimming Pool Blue Hunt. This great piece can be found at SFW Industries. This grouped photoframe is mesh and only 1 in LandImpact. The images shown in the frames are from the underwater photographer Elena Kalis.

Now it’s time for small sidenote: you see the great pink lipstick I wear in the pictures? It’s a new groupgift from Curvy Silhouettes by Xanthe and her lovley inworld store CS-Shapes by Xanthe Audeburgh. You know Xanthe she loves to surprise their groupmembers, and while I was taking pictures she sent it out. Thank you!

A Sunny Day at the Pier

sunbathing_1

Finally Friday! And since I spent my day yesterday in the libary I decided to take a break today and to chill a bit on the wonderful pier from PRIME. The pier is the current huntgift for the Summer Breeze Hunt and it is just way too cute. It is not too heavy (15 prims in total) and has neat animations (single and couple). So this one is a brilliant huntgift you definitely should get.

And since it is kind of a slacker day today I also wear some comfi clothing I found at the Mens Dept. By the way – in case you did not get the news: the Mens Dept. has moved its location! It can be now found here. But back to my outfit. The Polo Shirt is from [LV] and you can choose from 3 styles which differ by the color of the printing. It is sculpted with way easy to fit prims. Very reasonable made and finally some Polo Shirts. The shorts are the Postman Shorts from 22769 ~ casual couture also available at the Mens Dept.
