What Lies Beneath

What Lies Beneath 1

If you think the Fantasy Faire is just about fairy wings and colorful merfolk you are definitely wrong. There is a lot of edgy stuff to find there that is dark, bizarre and disturbing – in a good way. ContraptioN is such a shop that offers artificial jars and devil grins. If you want to scare the hell out of your friends – you must pay the store a visit. Also it is fantastic for pictures and obviously for roleplaying also. Shown above is the coat and the mask that are the RLF items from ContraptioN. The coat comes in male and female standard sizing and what is even more disturbing – it has no arms. If your arms are hidden under the cloak or if your character has no arms at all – well Ii will leave that to your imagination. I combined the coat with the brocade leather pants from 22769 ~ casual couture – also available on Fantasy Faire.

The absolute showstopper from ContraptioN definitely is the mask. It is wonderful done and has a fantastic texturing and is also creepy – kind of Hannibal Lector meets the Pestilence Doctor. Nevertheless – it is a fantastic made item and as you can see the texturing of the leather is outstanding.

The King of Oslo

King Of Oslo 1

Welcome in the New Year. Sorry for my absence of writing, but I just moved flats in RL and had all the fun like not working internet connections, packing and unpacking stuff and carry all of it in the fifth floor without elevator. Moving in SL is somewhat easier… But anyways: here I am trying to catch up on all the events and things happening in SL right now. So lets start with the crown I am wearing. It is a new release from a brand new store called “Aesthetica” and it is available in the current Gallery Gift Shop. Aesthetica is so new that they do not even own a mainstore right now within SL. So if you want to have the Fabric Crown you better hop over to the Gallery Gift Shop and get your copy while the current round is still rolling.

The Mens Dept. started last weekend in a complete new collection. And like always you can find brilliant stuff for lads there. The cozy hoodie I am wearing is from 22769 ~ casual couture. And you can choose from 6 different colors at the venue. And the fleece like texture indeed looks quite comfi to me. The pants are from !gO! The Morten Pants and Socks are very country in a stylish way. Also corduroy seems to be the new thing within SL. The pants are available in two different colors and there are also matching shirts and vests available at the Mens Dept.

Todays furniture also comes from the Mens Dept. The Oslo lounge and shelf set is the item from [kusshon] for the current round of the Mens Dept. And it is rich on details and great stuff. The lounge holds many animations. And the Laptop is also included. So this makes the set to a must have for every mancave. The Nippon desk and stool is also from [kusshon] and was the item from the December Mens Dept. But it is still available in the [kusshon] mainstore. Also here you get a lot of animations in the stool and many decorative pieces like coffee cups, pens, paper and a stack of japanese newspapers.

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.

The Runway Perfect Hunt is in full swing now and in case you need the Hints and stuff – here is the official Hintpage. Oh – and in opposite of many other hunts, especially with a theme like models or runways, this one offers a lot of guy stuff to find. On the runway today is the outfit from Paris Metro Couture. I especially love the woolen deep brown pants that feature a great texture. The belt comes from B!ASTA and comes with resizer. The bracelets are from Aurora Borealis, the Make Up from A:S:S and the Thorn Crown from House of Rage. In other words – a complete neat outfit for free with a little hunting fun. And there is even more awesomeness I will show you within the next days. So stay tuned lads.

Barefoot

Barefoot 1

There are some designers out there, who already offer some mesh feet for avatars. But about 99% of them offer feet for women. Lucky enough CheerNo thinks about the guys and that is where I got my feet from. Okay – what sounds about right in SL sounds a bit weird for RL – but nevertheless: the feet are easy to fit, come – of course – with a color-HUD and look incredible realistic.

Also – the v-neck and the scarf are the current groupgift for lads at ARTEMIS and it gives you a kind of boheme-ish look that I like. The glasses are also a groupgift: LnL, more known for their fantasy/roleplay clothing, give them away for free at their store. The poses I used come from {.:exposeur:.} who currently have a pose sale going on. If you are into SL photography go there. The poses are extremely well done and you can get a steal there til end of this month!
