Fashionable Elf

Fashionable Elf 1

And one of the most awaited events within secondlife is on again. Welcome to the Fantasy Faire 2013! And like every year this years Fantasy Faire has a few surprises for you. There are first of all the sims that are – once again – stunning and wonderful. Unfortunately I can not show you any pictures of the sims since yesterday was a black day for SL anyways – means: I crashed with every picture I took. Not to mention rezzing stuff. So you have to believe me. Or even better – go to the faire and check the sims out by yourself. And also – like every year: The sims are up JUST ONE WEEK! After the 28th all sims will be gone for good.

Talking about surprises: Of course you will find shops you would expect in such an event. But this year there are some shops in the Fantasy Faire you definitely would not expect. Brands like FATEwear. FATEwear? The contemporary mesh clothing store for men? Yes – exactly them! And it is not a clash at all because creator Damien Fate obviously has a thing for the fantasy side of SL. First of all he is an elf by himself – not a bow and arrow kind of elf, more the t-shirt and denims kind of longear. And second Damien Fate made some wonderful fantasy related items every now and then in the past like i.e. the Desmond Coat. Also you can find in the booth at Titans Hollow Mermaid Avatars and also Zombie Bodyparts.

For the Fantasy Faire – which is a RFL-Event – FATEwear crafted three complete outfits totally matching the theme. Shown here is the Elven Hunting Garb that comes in male standard sizing and an optional cloak. And the boots are also included in the pack. It is needless to say that the movement of the clothing is flawless. I was especially impressed by the subtile texturing and the richness of the virtual fabric. It is a wonderful gear that definitely should not be missed in every roleplay inventory. And it definitely is a keeper.

Another shop you might not expect at an event like the Fantasy Faire is 22769 ~ casual couture. Yet again a casual fashion shop that usually has no connection to the Fantasy scene. Nevertheless you will find some surprising items in their booth also like these elven ears I am wearing today. There are two versions available and I am wearing the pointy elven ears for the pictures. The ears come of course with an easy to handle HUD and alpha layer for the avatar ears.

FATEwear and 22769 ~ casual couture – two shops that prove that the borders between contemporary, casual clothing and fantasy related appearence are thankfully blurry and floating.

Big Weekend

Big Weekend 1

Hello weekend – finally. Todays blogpost has the title “Big Weekend” and indeed it is huge, tremendous, splendid… you name it. Firstly this will be one of the longest blogposts I have ever written so far because – second – there is so much going on in SL right now that it is hard to keep track. The Summer Season is over and Autumn Release Madness starts exactly today.

Okays – first my todays look. Casual, isn’t it? Well as some of you might have heard already there is a “new” kid in town called FATEwear. Damien Fate, who is one of the first creators who got into rigged mesh clothing – amongst many things he is responsible for a lot of releases from ColdLogic – finally decided to start his own brand. And now comes the good news: FATEwear is dedicated to menswear! Next good news: the outfit shown above is for free – just jump to FATEwear, subscribe yourself and voila – get your gift. Final good news: make a picture in your new received gear, load it up in the FATEwear flickr group and have the chance to win the WHOLE initial mesh collection of FATEwear.

Not that new but still fabulous are the rigged mesh men feet from Slink. They just fit perfectly and look extremely natural. And the tinting is way easy if you follow the instructions.

List of stuff:
Outfit: FATEwear – Carter (free Subscribo Gift)
Feet: SLink – Mens Natural Barefeet

Big Weekend 2

I have the pleasure to show you in this post the new release from Designer Prims: the complete meshed With Aroha (Love) House. And it is pure luxory. Of course the texturing is flawless but one of the best things about the houses of Designer Prims is the layout. It is the perfect balance between windows and walls to place your personal stuff. The With Aroha House has a small kitchen also (shown left) and so many fotogenic corners that one blog post for sure is not enough to show at least all the fascinating details.

HISpose just released a new pose set called HISbeer. Why, count me in – it’s weekend. Like all poses from HISpose the HISbeer poses are well done and charming. And the idea – as simple as it might sound – is brilliant. The posters in my back are from Iconic and are a groupgift from the shop. So if you are looking for some youthful wall decoration with an unbeatable music taste – check the store out!

Huge window fronts scream for decoration. I am not a big fan of curtains but I found these adorable origami paper cranes. They are mesh and each crane is just one prim – so the perfect decoration item. And also these cranes are a group gift. They come from (Elate!). You do not need a groupslot to join the group since (Elate!) are using a group vendor where you can check past messages – and the origami paper cranes are a past gift in the subscribo.

List of stuff:
Pose: HISpose – HISbeer
Poster: Iconic – Indie Poster (Groupgift)
Decoration: (Elate!) – Origami Paper Cranes (Subscribo Gift)

Big Weekend 3

A few hunts start this weekend – and I was especially looking forward to the Four Walls Hunt. The hunt is dedicated to interior design, homes and decoration. Each huntgift is 10 L$ but on the webpage you can see the prices and decide on your own which one you like. Anyways – the gifts in this hunt are brilliant and definitely worth it. Shown above is the  ‘Falling’ Wall Decor fro {what next} It is a way cute wall painting with a mesh ladder and poses – I love this one so much and it brings fun and color to your walls. The lamps above me are also from the Four Walls Hunt. They are from Organica Specialty Trees, meshed and go on and off by mouseclick. Two of many Must Haves from the hunt!

List of stuff:
Decoration: {what next} – ‘Falling’ Wall Decor (Four Walls Hunt 10L$)
Lamps: Organica Specialty Trees – Work Lamps (Four Walls Hunt 10L$)

Big Weekend 4

And yet another fabulous gift from above mentioned Four Walls Hunt: this dinner table including the chairs (animations included) and the decoration are part of the gift from +sanctuaire+ called “Garden Party”. The gift contains also a party room, but the furniture works so well also as stand alone. What I especially love about this set is the excellent texturing – and also it fits perfect either in really modern houses, like the one from Designer Prims, and also in rustic homes.

List of stuff:
Table, chairs and table decoration: +sanctuaire+ – Garden Party (Four Walls Hunt 10L$)

Big Weekend 5

This adorable shelf is also a huntgift from the upcoming “What Do You Sell” Hunt. And it is no wonder why it matches so perfect the house from Designer Prims because – it is the gift from Designer Prims. The “Funky Shelving” comes with all accessories and also with animations and is definitely a brilliant gift. Make sure you check the store hintgiver for the hideout!

List of stuff:
Furniture: Designer Prims – Funky Shelving (WDYSH Gift)

Big Weekend 6

Finally it is time to show you the With Aroha (Love) House in all beauty after strolling through the inside. And you can see that the design is on the one hand modern, but also very sophisticated. You have a ponton with table, plants and chairs to meet with your friends outside. Of course you also have a pool and the balance between the main building and the entrance is marvelous. Definitely one of the best houses in SL so far and if you are looking for a new home I strongly recommend this one. Like said above – even with that amount of pictures I simply can not do the build justice cause there are still so many corners I have not showed you yet. But best idea anyways is to go to Designer Prims and see it for yourself.

List of stuff:
Prefab: Designer Prims – With Aroha (Love) House (mesh)
