Let us start todays blogpost with the good news first: remember the 49 L$ Sale for Dudes that was on a year ago and then vanished into thin air? 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.
And if we are talking about accessories we hardly can miss L’accessories, can we? These super neat Armwarmers are from ~Tableau Vivant~ and they are available in 8 different colors at the venue. They are rigged mesh and there are male and female standard sizes included. So – like siad – do not make too much plans for your weekend in SL – because you definitely have to go on a shopping spree.
List of stuff:
Hair: [Atro Patena] – Kevin Black (49 L$ Sale for Dudes)
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].
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!
List of stuff:
Hair: [Atro Patena] – Hector black (for the Mens Dept.)
Eyes: .ID. Heterochromia solid green (for the Mens Dept.)
Necklace: KOSH – Epiphany Necklace inverted (for the Mens Dept.)
Tank: [LV] – SOLIDe Tank Note black (mesh) (for the Mens Dept.)
Pants: D R O P – Cropped Chinos beige (for the Mens Dept.)
Patio and BBQ-Stuff: *Funky*Junk* – Backyard BBQ Patio (for the Mens Dept.)
Freebies are shabby – only noobs wear freebies and they are not stylish at all, right?
Normally I try to do one blogpost a day which keeps me busy enough to be honest. But today I was forced to make another one (and believe me – this will be the exception of the rule). Why is that so? Well – I was trying to sort my inventory when a groupmessage from :sey popped up. Risey Arai made a freebie section. Freebies? At :sey? I must be kidding you. I do not. And boys and girls. The freebie section is not big, it is bloody HUGE! Everything I am wearing today is actually from the new :sey Freebie Department. Well everything except my everydays skin from Kento, the shades from bastard and the hair from Atro Patena. And the pose is from my new favorite pose store HISpose.
This is of course great news since Risey is a sculpt and texture god – not to mention his special style. The even better news are between the lines tho. Risey is cleaning out his shop and is getting rid of the old stuff. This can only mean that we can expect even more awesomeness from :sey – and the latest mesh releases speak loud and clear. Keep an eye on this shop – there is definitely more to come within the next weeks.
List of stuff:
Hair: [Atro Patena] Kelvin Black
Glasses: bastard. – MESH BC Frames/Solid Black
Skin: *KENTO* Toban_T2 Freckles
Pose: HISpose – Emo Leans
Everything else: :sey – Freebie Department
Wow, that was a joyful shopping spree earlier. And girls – what I like most about it: right after making my credit card burn I enjoy and relax in a small cafe. Meeting with a friend and share the latest gossip. But before I tell you all a long story today, I have so much wonderful items to introduce to you, that I better start right away.
Let us start with this neat piece of furniture, in the picture above. It’s available at the CHIC² Birthday Event from Fluke. This great set comes with the coffee table (flowers and cups included) and two chairs with matching poses. In the image above I use the gossip poses. You can change your sitting pose by touching the chair.
My first look for today (the one in the background) is the great mesh dress created by [sys]. The xTens dress makes you look great in every ocassion. And with the cut, it is a perfect mix and match item. This dress is also available at the CHIC² Birthday Event.
The more classical hairstyle I’m wearing in the foreground is from Atro Patena. The Juliet Hair is available in many different colors, with matching hairband included. The summerish dress “moody” (I am wearing the sageblossom version) can be found at the coldLogic booth at CHIC² Birthday Event.
The colorful Beaded Boho Necklace is the hunt gift from Aura in the currently running Mesh Around 2012. These rigged mesh necklace comes in two different sizes.
But as always, I advice you to take a look at these items yourself. As a little help, see the credits below.
Items used in this blogpost:
Here I am now with everything prepared. I have my best clothes on (I mean – I even wear a hat), the room is tidy, I have some birthday cocktails prepared and I got some fresh flowers. The only thing missing is the honored guest: CHIC. Because it is its birthday. CHIC turns 2 – well actually tomorrow, but since CHIC is famous and has many, many friends I thought it would be a good idea to celebrate it a day beforehand. Well – good idea, but CHIC did not appear. I mean – I can understand that perfectly cause CHIC is organising a huge celebration by itself and has a lot of things to do. And hey, I am just a small blogger and I really can not expect that CHIC can make room in its incredible busy schedule just to drop by, say hello and have a Manhatten or two. Nevertheless – I am a bit disappointed of course since I spent ages to clean my house, dress up, preparing the cocktails and getting these darn fresh flowers.
The birthday event is called CHIC² and of course all brands which work together with CHIC are having a booth there and offer complete new items. I was lucky to get an early access to CHIC² and the place is overwhelming. Little boxes arranged like a tower and each box is decorated individually by the designers to celebrate together with CHIC. This is an event – sure, but somehow also a state of the art installation of what you can do in second life with a little bit of creativity. You literally can spend ages there to see what ideas the creative minds of SL have come up with. Oh – and you can also shop there for new and exclusive items also!
The vest and shirt is the first release at CHIC² item from 22769 ~ casual couture, and like all new items from the store it is mesh and it comes in male standard sizing. The guys from 22769 offer 4 different color options at the event – I am wearing the white shirt and the brown vest. I like especially the idea that the shirt/vest combinations also are in a trans version at the place – so people can buy the clothing as a gift – and that is what birthdays are about anyways: gifts!
The hat and hair are the new male release by [Atro Patena] and also available at CHIC². And also the “Coffee and Cigarettes” pose from STATUS (part of a pose pack with 10 poses) can be found there. The poses include – of course – the cigarette and the coffee cup.
And now: the brilliant furniture! I saw it and I instantly fell in love. You know that I have a thing for retro stuff anyways, but the Haarlem Deco Set from POST lifted my expectation up to a complete new level. The texturing of every item included in this set is unbelievable. The love for detail is marvellous. And all pieces are copy – so you can rez as much chairs and sofas and tables (and vases with fresh flowers) as you want to. The deco set fits in every home and if you have a thing for style – this is your purchase! Of course the Haarlem Deco Set can be found at CHIC² also.
The wall art behind the sofa can not be found at the birthday party. But with a little hunting you can get it for free: The Footprints of Buddha are the gift from Miss Buccaneer’s Restorations for the Silk Road Hunt 3.
The prefab comes from Designer Prims. The “Little Beach House” is – again – a wonderful open and well constructed house. What I really do love about the houses and skyboxes from Designer Prims is that the house is not “loud textured” – means: the house steps back behind every kind of furniture and decoration you put in. Nearly every furniture you can think of fits in their houses without appearing strange.
