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!
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$.
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!
Now it’s about to start the hunt yourself, but first – here are the credits for todays items:
“Dark the other side is…”
Sometimes it is big fun talking to a designer. The new rotation of The Gallery Gift Shop starts today and like always 22769 ~ casual couture offer a neat mesh outfits for the lads (well – there is one for the ladies also, but I will not shave my legs for that one – I better leave it to Mondra). The theme of both outfits is “Floating Sunrise” and indeed the colors are kind of bright and lovely and the clothing – especially these fabulous silk flared pants – float around your avatar. And then I ran into Paco Pooley from 22769 and we had a lil chat. And he mentioned that somehow the outfits remind him of a Bollywood remake of Star Wars – and well: the seed was sown in my head.
I remembered that HISpose released a few days ago a brilliant geeky pose as groupgift – and the pose includes a light saber! And well – everything was set and here we go: surrender no more the – hum – bright lord of the sith Darth Farshore. I could rave for hours about the lucky coincidences, the brilliant making of the clothing and the pose and the wonderful enviroment – but fact is: the outfit from 22769 at the Gallery Gift Shop is all kinds of awesome (and also can be worn seperately) and the supergeek pose from HISpose is one thing every boy has to have in his inventory. Oh and talking about the pose: You see it in the last pic in front of the credits. Nothing beats a good smoke after slaugthering some persky jedi knights…
List of stuff:
Hair: [iruco] hair27 (black)
Pose: HISpose – Lightsaber (Groupgift)
Summer in RL means summer in secondlife also. Strange enough, cause somewhere always is summer in secondlife. But nevertheless: the bathing season has begun. And it is perfect timing, cause what is the best clothing to showcase a skin? Right, beachwear. So let us start with the skin first: Belleza has joined the Mens Dept. with a special edition of the Ewan Skin. And you can see it in all different views in this blogpost. To tell something completely new about the mens line of Belleza is simply impossible – the skin is, of course, flawless. It gives me a bit older appearance then my regular skin, but I kinda like it a lot. What I personally love about the Belleza men skins is that they are not uber-buffed. So you do not look like a bodybuilder with this one. And an absolute plus always with Belleza is the fine definition of the face. And now comes the best part: you can get the skin for just 150 L$ at the Mens Dept! And of course demos are available.
Another major brand in SL is Miamai – famous for their quirky but always wearable designs. I absolutely fell in love with the new Swimmwear Collection. The swim trunks are mesh and you can either choose between retro patterns like above on the Aron Shorts or vibrant colors (shown below).
The Steve Shorts from Miamai are also mesh and have a more boarderish look. Perfect for every kind of pool- or beach party and definitely one of the must haves this summer. The Little Pool House comes from Designer Prims and is the current Groupgift (the Group is free to join). It is a small beach house with pool and two rooms that – typical for the designs of Designer Prims – float into each other. A brilliant prefab – especially as free gift!
Here you can have a close look on the face of the Ewan Skin from Belleza and also of course on the rigging of the Hawaii Blue Steve Shorts from Miamai since the pose I choose is rather extreme. But as you can see – no distortions or spikes. The shorts just fit perfectly.
In the last picture finally I show you something from the inside of the Little Pool House. And here comes another strength about the layouts of Designer Prims: the prefabs are not overtextured or convulted. It leaves you many room for your own personality and ideas. On the left I am wearing the Nylon Melon Steve Shorts and on the right another find from the Mens Dept.: the Pool Party Briefs from Lazybum with sculpted bulge and drawstrings. The beanbags are from [kusshon] and are also available at the Mens Dept.
List of stuff:
Hair: Dura – The 2nd year Anniversary hair (Black)
Skin: Belleza – Ewan Special Edition (for the Mens Dept.)
Swimwear (picture 1): MIAMAI – Aron Shorts Flower A
Swimwear (picture 2): MIAMAI – Steve Shorts Flower Green
Swimwear (picture 3): MIAMAI – Steve Shorts Blue Hawaii
Prefab: Designer Prims – Little Pool House (free Groupgift)
Beanbags: [kusshon] – men’s beanie (blue and lilac) (for the Mens Dept.)
Just a quick one before I vanish again in the libary: FaMeshed is a well known fair brand already (which is spectacular keeping in mind that the 3rd round just opened) but FaMeshed is more or less branded as a womens mesh room. This changed dramatically cause right now some male mesh designer also joined FaMeshed – so it is definitely worth to check the event out lads. Even more since FaMeshed offers a Groupgift – one for the ladies and – well – one for the gents. The gift is this brilliant open silk shirt from Kauna and the group is free to join. I strongly recommend to stay in the group anyways cause I am sure that – with male mesh standard sizing – more and more male mesh designer will join the FaMeshed bunch.
List of stuff:
Hair: [iruco] hair27 (black)
Scarf: :sey – Freebie Department N.B. scarf
Shirt: Kauna – Open Shirt: Crimson (Groupgift at FaMeshed)
Shorts: <kal rau> – V-Neck and Cargo Shorts (Groupgift)
