Blue

Blue 1

I do love hunts in SL. And to be honest – not neccessarily for the gifts but to find new shops and places I have never heard about. And of course: if the gifts I gain through the treasure hunt are good you definitely will not hear me complaining. The Swimming Pool Blues Hunt is a hunt that fulfills both expectations – to introduce me to new shops and places and also some neat gifts. The theme of this hunt is blue – swimmingpool blue to be precise. Every gift has to have all shades of blue you can find in a swimming pool. Very Edward Hopper. Oh and I should add that every gift is 5L$ what is not too much if you look at the quality of the creations.

But lets start with this neat little mansion from L&K Prefabs: it is extremely lovely made and the texturing is brilliant. Of course not everything in the “Ma Petite Mansion” is blue – you also find white walls in it and the lovely seagrass graphic. Anyways it is a wonderful little house that works quite good as a boat house or a beach shag. It is also mod – so you can alter it to your needs if you have a little building knowledge.

One thing you can get in this hunt is interior design and furniture – and the gifts are high quality and well thought and dedicated to the theme. The art above me is the gift from UrbanizeD. The art to my right is one of the gifts from BoatHouse. The second one is the plaid rug. The shop BoatHouse was completely new to me and I spent quite some time there. I can tell you – it is lovely. BoatHouse offers many furniture, houses and probs with neat little poses and well scripted. You can find rowboats there also like pontons and many things more – and what I have seen all wonderful made. BoatHouse definitely is one of my personal finds in the hunt.

But let’s continue with the prices: the chair I am sitting on is from [kusshon] – and like every furniture from [kusshon] this also is extremely well done. I had a giggle when I browsed through the  animations/poses menue because the animations have the names of movie stars (shown above is Clooney). The couch table is from Baffle and is called “Oceanic End Table”. It is another brilliant gift and shows probably best that the creators have well overthought the theme of the hunt and made something very unique out of it. There are starfish and sand inside and even water that moves. The texturing of the table is just so real that you want to grab in your screen. The gift comes with lamp and without lamp (which is a mastepiece of its own).

The sideboard is the gift from Senzafine and it matches just perfect the overall look and feel of all the hunt gifts you can find in this hunt. A wonderful piece of furniture that gives your virtual home an extra.

Finally the dozen long stemmed roses are not from the hunt, but a find at the Vintage Fair. This great piece of decor comes from Hanaya and is – again – a wonderful add to your decor that brings personality and a special touch in your home.

Following the theme of todays blog entry I rushed over to the Mens Dept. to get me the new Poetic Colors mesh eyes “nightfall (nightsky)”. Like always and like with every eyes PC are doing the texturing is from out of this world. I am so glad that Poetic Colors are back again and that they also work with mesh to even improve their flawless work they did before. And at the Mens Dept. I also got me the denim capri shorts from CheerNo and the blue tee from DROP.

Things that matter

stand4love

Second Life is fun and that is a good thing. Our real life can have ups and downs, but second life is something like a vacation from the real world. Nevertheless there are real people behind every avatar. And this is what counts.

We can make second life a better place then maybe our real life is. In my humble opinion hate and discrimination has no place in our virtual enviroment. I found the website STAND4LOVE with a clear message: It is time! Open your heart. Open your mind.
For me it was no second thought to participate.

If there is something like a trend in SL I would say that tribal motives are kind of having a renaissance. I see more and more items that are inspired from different cultures – or, like in case with the v-neck I am wearing, take patterns and combine them to something completely new. The Jax mesh v-neck from CheerNo is the current offer in the Mens Department. You can choose between two styles. And the v-necks come in male standard sizing. Even if there are many colors used in the print I especially love about the shirt that it is not too loud.

The cool sun visors (not yet released) and the tote bag come from :sey. The tote bag is even a gift – you have to join the :sey group to get it. Nevertheless: I need to protect myself from the sun anyways since I am rather fair and get a sunburn quite easy. So the visors come quite handy for me.

Lost in the Libary

bookworm_1

Sorry for my absence these days. I turned into a bookworm and spent ages in the libary since I have had an important test today. And what can I say – it went pretty well – weeeeee… Anyways – lucky coincidence: I stumbled across a store with the most amazing skyboxes in second life. Garden of Dreams – or short GoT – offer, well lets say, unusual skyboxes for everyone. And since they also offer a libary as skybox I just was not able to resist.

bookworm_2

The libary comes completely furnished and has overall 423 prims. And as you can see in the picture – it is rather big (40 x 40 meter). And it has a lot of animations like on the fireplace, on all chairs and desks, in the book shelfs and book stands… In other words – you can have a lot of fun with this one (and yes – some x-rated animations are also included). What I love best about the skybox from GoT is the transport system – there is no easier way to set up a skybox. You rez the box rezzer on the ground, rez the “Transportation bubble”, let the skybox rez (which will become rezzed in 1000 meter hight) and just slip in the bubble that teleports you directly in your skybox. Brilliant and neat idea!

So if you are fed up with the usual 4 walls with floor and ceiling and want to have some Harry Potter feeling in your new virtual home i strongly recomment the libary. But anyways: GoT has so much more to offer. A desert skybox, an old tree to live in, a tibetan temple… anything you can think of and that is slightly unusual – you will find it here. So you definitely have to visit the Garde of Dreams.

My todays look comes – again – from the Men Only Hunt 2. The tank, the boots and the denims – all mesh – come from Gabriel and my nerdy glasses are the gift from CheerNo.

Sunny Day in Retro Style

italy_1

I always had a thing for retro styles and the new Mens Dept., that openes today, has a lot of this to offer. First of all the visor from CheerNo. It comes with a “blue shade tattoo” for your face for an extra realistic look. This kind of visor reminds me of the 80ies – especially when I look a photographs of my older brothers. The brown retro longsleeve and the Schanzen Denims come from 22769 ~ casual couture and also can be found for a snip in the Mens Dept.  Both are rigged mesh items. The denims come in 4 different sizes and the longsleeve in 3. I especially love the textures and the rigging of the meshes.

The slipper I am wearing come from another mens room – the Narcissus Room which entered its 5 round. They come from {k}Rea and i love the quirky appeal on them with the sugar skull texturing.

But back to The Mens Dept.: If you are into SL photography you definitely need some poses. And PDA provided a neat posepack for guys. The poses I used in this post are from the pack – ad there are many more to find! So – wait no longer: finally guys have reasonable places for some brilliant deals and most of all for extremely well done mesh items.
