Mendoza

Mendoza 1

Life is unfair – especially secondlife: here am I trying to catch up on all the events happening right now within SL – and new ones are already starting. So this is definitely a mix and match post. Nevertheless – the merchants within SL make it easy these days to keep you entertained and also to find neat stuff for your avatar, home and garden. So let’s start again with the Around The World Fair and with another region: South America. Trompe Loeil, who are also sponsoring the event, made this adorable Mendoza bed and I especially love the textures on the cushions and the blanket. The textures also can become changed by mouseclick – you can choose between three Argentinian patterns and two neutral versions also – so the bed matches definitely every room. And like always – there is a mass of animations and animated poses included.

Yesterday The Great Outdoor Hunt by the Royal Living Magazine has started and I got myself the “Natures Way Mini Set” by DIGS containing the log store and the stool. There is even a lamp and also a rug in the huntgift that are not shown here. Finally again a furniture hunt and I can only encourage you to do this one because – as you can see on the Royal Living Magazine Website – the gifts are adorable. Each gift is 45 L$ and some of them are kind of hard hidden also. The only downer with this hunt is, that there seem to be no hints provided. So you need a good eye and a little bit of luck for this one.

For the art, and you know that I have a thing for SL art: again these are artworks you can find at The Gallery Gift Shop. Still one of my first stops when I decorate a space or a house because you can find so much adorable stuff there for not too much money.

Todays outfit comes straight from the Mens Dept. I already told you that <HVK> have some adorable cardigans in the Mens Dept. Finally it is time to show them. The Pilot Cardigan is available in black, grey, navy and, shown here, khaki. You definitely should check the demo first on this one because it comes only in two sizes. Nevertheless: the purchase also includes a shirt for the cardigan that is not shown here. The green skater pants are from 22769 ~ casual couture and is also one of the finds in the Mens Dept.

It is funny – in the current Mens Dept. you can find items from different designers that follow one vibe. This time it definitely is skating. But let us start at the beginning: I wanted to go with a complete different look and therefor I purchased the Pilot Cardigan from <HVK> – that is obviously not shown here because <HVK> have a special kind of “shoppingbag” for their items which is the skateboard with the pose you can see above. And I have had a good laugh when I saw this and I somewhat wanted to create a look around this one. And for the cardigan – I will feature the knit from <HVK> in a further post for sure, because it is fabulous.

The denims with the wrapped around shirt are from !gO! and I really love the look of them. Also the shirt moves of course with your walk and shows once again the creativity of designers with mesh. The bicolor v-neck comes from [LV]SOLIDe and comes in 4 different styles and of course, like the pants from !gO!, in mesh male standard sizing.

The super curly hair is from [IRUCO] and is their latest release. Definitely a must if you are not going for the usual haircut in secondlife. The fantastic necklace comes from KOSH. The “Adain Necklace” can be found in the Mens Dept. in five different styles (black, chopper, silver, gold and shown here: brass) and this time you also can find the matching rings at the Mens Dept. I especially love of course the flawless texturing and the brilliant crafting of the necklace which is with every KOSH item I saw. Also you get not only the male version but also the female version and both options are also included with the chest- and spine attachment points. My eyes are from Poetic Colors and have been an item in a previous cycle of the Mens Dept.

Home Alone

Finally Friday! Perfect time for relaxing and preparing for the weekend. And guys – honestly – there is A LOT happening this weekend. I am talking about new releases, a complete new round of the Mens Dept. – one of the best collections at this fair so far – and about must haves!

You see me playing my guitar on my complete new beanbag. The beanie – not for your head, for your bum – is one of four beanbags from [kusshon]. And there are ubercute animations included. Like – seen above – the guitarplaying. The guitar also comes in 2 trans versions – so you can give it away to your friends for a lil jam session. Brilliant idea from the designer. The beanie can be found tomorrow in the Mens Dept. The picture in the background comes from Gabrielle Swindlehurst and it is called – you guess it already – FIVE. I found that one for a snip at the Gallery Gift Shop. The neat little tree is from the Midnight Mania Board at Lithium. By the way – Lithium moved – update your landmarks! Link – like always – below. And for the bookshelf… hold your horses for another few minutes – I will tell you something about it soon.

When I am at home I usually do not dress up – and what you see in this picture is pretty much me in RL. Some sloppy tee and loose pants, or in other words: comfi wear. The loose pants are from [Sheep Door], is mesh in different sizes (female sizes also included) and is also available at the Mens Dept tomorrow. There are three colors to choose from: Navy (shown here), Beige and Red. And while we are at it: of course the sloppy tee can also be found in the Mens Dept. It is from Havok, also mesh, also variable sizes and available in Khaki (shown above), Navy, Black and Grey. I especially love the pattern on the shoulders – it gives the shirt a little extra.

Come a little bit closer – there is even more I have to show you. The necklace/rosary is from KOSH and KOSH are joining the Mens Dept for the first time this round. Have I already told you that the new collection of the Mens Dept. is the best so far? Well I guess you now get a picture. Need more proof? Sure thing: look me deep in the eyes. Vibrant color, wonderful made, a masterpiece of its own. It must be Poetic Colors. But wait! It was kinda quiet around Poetic Colors for a while now, wasn’t it? Well – Poetic Colors is back with a bang – and with a complete new collection of mesh eyes. And Poetic Colors also joined the Mens Dept.

Soo – remember the bookshelf above? Well – here it comes: The bookshelf is included in a complete new prefab from Designer Prims. It is a skybox – or a groundhouse if you like. It works brillant both ways. And… It is completely mesh! The Romantic Loft Space has a 30 x 16 footprint and has incredible features like blinds you can turn on and off, texturechanger and of course a security system. And now comes the best part: The Loft is only 20 (TWENTY!) prims! It is big, it is beautiful and you can put furniture and art galore in it, cause with 20 prims you really have to clutter your space to get to your prim limit on your parcel. To get a glimpse of the brilliant prefab look below – and believe me, since I chose this one to be my new home in SL – you will see some more pictures of it. Soon!

Night Vision

Rob your piggy banks, guys: the new collection of the Mens Dept. openes today and it is all kind of awesome! The Mens Dept. is definitely the place to get state of the art menswear and most of it is mesh. These incredible realistic goggles are from Pixlights Factory. I especially love the metallic texture on these. This is no item that was made between lunchbreak and afternoon nap. It is absolutely georgeous and it works in so many ways. As neat accessory also like for roleplay.

The leatherjacket/tee combination is from Havok – and Havok is one of these stores who work with mesh for men for some time now and pushes the quality to new levels with every release they do. The texturing on the jacket and also on the tee is flawless. You can only wear the jacket with t-shirt, but that is no downer since the  combination is brilliant. and on the plus side – there are two different combinations you can choose from.

Poses are essential for a blogger and for everyone who enjoys SL fotography. To find reasonable ones – well this is a different story. HISpose is a shop that offers poses made by a blogger. Sixx Yangtz is blogging for years now and he definitely knows how a good pose has to look like to work for a picture. You can check out his and his partners blog here: RYXX

I used in these pictures the poses from the Model III set.

Drama King

I catched the flu and this is so typical for me. Spring is here, weather gets fine and I am lying in bed with fever and a running nose. Meh! I know that I am not the most patient sick person in the world. Some might call me even a drama king. Sooo – this cardigan from the Mens Dept. comes in handy, cause indeed it is called: Drama King.

The cardigan comes in several wearing options (sleeves up and down) and also with this grey v-neck shirt I am also wearing. It has neat details like the I-Phone and the pencil in the pocket and i especially love the leopard patterned pockets. The prim parts are way easy to adjust. Around my neck I am wearing the grey Tee*fy Soft Cotten Scarf grey. And the Poses are also from the Mens Dept and come from {.:exposeur:.}
