Harvest

Harvest 1

I love autumn – or let’s precise it: I love the colors in autumn and how the nature changes – oh and I definitely love autumn food. What I do not like that much in autumn is indeed the weather and the chill in the air. You know – when you go out you are never dressed right. Either way too warm, or you freeze your ass off.

Autumn in secondlife is kind of special because it mainly is the, how I call it, romantic side of autumn. Like pumpkins and fallen leafes and thanksgiving and all that wonderful stuff. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with that because it displays exactly that what people love about autumn. And when it comes to clothing you are never dressed wrong (weatherwise) in SL.

Nevertheless: Autumn hit the Mens Dept hard. I already showed you yesterday the Dufflecoat. Today it is the Parka from 22769 ~ casual couture. Also the parka is rigged mesh and it has mindblowing details like buttons and the wonderful hood with the orange lining. It just looks so real with all the folds and wrinkles. You will find the parka in four different colors in the new Mens Dept (opening on October 5th): black (shown here), white, green and blue.

And also from the Mens Dept are the Painter Pants from [Sheep Door]. I love the cut of those and also the folding is quite natural. Definitely a keeper if you are bored by your blue jeans. The Painter Pants are available in black and beige, and also in red, green and yellow check pattern.

Harvest 2

Autumn also arrived at [CIRCA]. The “Time for Harvest” Fall Wheelbarrow is a wonderful prob and decoration for your autumn garden. Filled with all kinds of pumpkins it also includes this supercute pose shown above. The Wheelbarrow can be found at the Designer Warehouse and you better hurry up because the current cycle closes today! The vintage harvest banquet in the background is also from [CIRCA] and it is way lovely – perfect for having a nice dinner with friends under an autum theme.

Oh and in case you wonder where I took todays pictures: it is again a wonderful skybox, or better said dreamscene, from Garden Of Dreams. The cabin comes in an autumn and in a winter version. So it is 2 skyboxes in one – and it is way lovely!

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.

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

50 Styles of Blue

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!

Individualism

The one thing that makes the Mens Dept. truly special is the fact that you not only can get high quality clothing for men there. It is a big part and this also is absolutely appreciated. Next to the Mens Dept. there is no other event for guys that shows brilliant state of the art designs in menfashion on the grid. Nearly every piece is mesh – and that speaks loud. And for the non-mesh-clothing: they are extremely well done and by far outstanding.

I absolutely love about the Mens Dept. that you also can get other stuff there. Like furniture, decorations and even buildings – all with men in mind. Look at the Henrik Bench from Cheeky Pea. It is a typical Locker Room bench with 6 single and 3 couple poses/animations. It is lovely in its straightforward design. The Haywood Pipe Shelf from PILOT is one of the most brilliant ideas for a piece of furniture ever and I strongly recommend everyone to get a copy. Not only that the idea is fantastic – it is also extremely rich on details as you can see on the connector and the socket, but also on the lamp and the books. You even can turn the light on and off by mouseclick. The potted plants are from the Midnight Mania at Lithium, the vase with daisies are a gift from Designer Prims (you can get it at their landingpoint) and the artwork is – again – from my number one art provider The Gallery Gift Shop.

And now let’s go back to the clothing: 22769 ~ casual couture again set a high mark on quality mesh clothing. The chinos and the poloshirt is not only a perfect casual combination – they are also extremely well done and textured. The “behaviour” of the mesh is very natural and so is the folding on the textures. This definitely shows me that mesh never fails to surprise me. I also love the fact that 22769 offers – again – three different styles of chinos and three different styles of poloshirts at the Mens Dept. And also I really adore the mint color on the poloshirt which gives it something very summerish.

As backdrop I used the wonderful mesh skybox from Designer Prims I blogged about yesterday.

Cheesecake

Weekend boys and girls – and even better: A new exhibition in the Gallery Gift Shop. And like always you find also this time some wonderful and quirky items there. The Gallery Gift Shop is now in its 12th round – that means: end of this new exhibition the art and sale fair is one year old! Not bad for secondlife where you can literally watch sales events come and go.

Today I am wearing the contribution from 22769 ~ casual couture for the GGS. Some mesh slim cut chefron jeans and a special edition of the mesh open shirt and tee combination. The matching glasses come from {Kiro} and are also a find at the GGS.

I am having a little pre-celebration for the 1 year anniversary of the Gallery Gift Shop with some home made cheesecake. The cheesecake comes from +9 who finally have an inworld store with neat little things. You definitely should check this store out if you need something like sushi plates, a watermelon bowl, cute sandals or hats – it is a bit of everything and very japanese (I guess) but adorable. And – the cheesecake i.e. is completely free.

The art in the background is one of my favorite pieces of Gabrielle Swindlehurst who is also a contributor at the Gallery Gift Shop. She provides astonishing art from exhibition to exhibition and it is also not that pricy. If you are looking for something decorative for your home – you MUST go to the Gallery Gift Shop because it is all there. Finally the furniture comes from Designer Prims. The carpet has 14 different textures on touch – you can change it whatever matches your room best. The sofas have splendid reasonable animations which made me giggle when I tested them – and you even can change the textures of the pillows and the sofas.
