Aztec Weekend

Aztec Weekend 1

Welcome to the well deserved weekend. Since I am rather lazy on the weekends I decided to make a more comfi blog post. Todays main actor is the Replica Prefab from { ililo } that can be found at the current Mens Dept. The building is a cottage like small house with lovely texturing. I especially adore the floor tiling. { ililo } not only has the prefab in the Mens Dept. but also the Ind. Lamp and the Farmhouse Table (displayed in picture 2).

My todays outfit also comes from the Mens Dept. The Painter Pants are from [Sheep Door] and the fleece jacket is the Aztec Jacket from {.essences.}. The jacket is available in 5 different styles and it is rigged mesh in male standard sizing.

The sofa is a special edition from LISP BAZAAR and the artwork comes from Emma Hack and is available at the LND Gallery and Hangout.

I really love the Farmhouse Table from { ililo }. The texturing is flawless and it is again a piece of furniture that looks just way real. The wooden chairs come from Warbug Headquarters and they match just perfectly the overall country home style. I strongly recommend to visit Warbug Headquarters anyways because there is many stuff to explore there and second the items are definitely not overpriced. floorplan have two wonderful and quirky items to offer in the Mens Dept. First of all the photo hanger in the background. You can add your own pictures to it and it is just that decoration piece that gives individualism to your virtual home. The second item is the “honest abe lamp” and it is… a Top Hat. The funny thing about the lamp is, that there is indeed the lamp in the package, but also a top hat you can wear (or place as decoration like I did). The second hat is from the currently running Runway Perfect Hunt and comes from Xen’s Hats. Finally the dishes are from BoatHouse – one of my favorite shops when it comes to decoration and country style furniture.

October is the month of Halloween – and Halloween marks the start of the huge celebrated holidays within second life. And of course the current Mens Dept. has also some Halloween-ish items: BALACLAVA!! has the supercreepy twins as offer at the venue. Both are mesh with a LI of 10 (each) so it is not too heavy for a decoration piece.

Today the Mens Dept. finally opens – and it is time for me to show you some more of the awesomeness that awaits you at the number one spot for contemporary male fashion and items within second life. Poetic Colors are one of the shops that provide round for round high quality eyes at the venue. This time they choose “Autumn” as theme for the new collection of eyes – and as always they are wonderfully done. Also you get a huge variety of each eye color in every pack. Of course the system eyes, but also a lot of mesh eyes with many options like brightness and size of the eye texture. The eyes can be of course also become resized by mouseclick. Shown above is the greenish “october rain” mesh eyes.

I was very happy to see that also KOSH joined the Mens Department again. KOSH offer a necklace and a matching bracelet called “Copec” and first of all it looks wonderful and second you really can get it for a steal at the Mens Dept. The necklace and the bracelet are available in three different styles: antique (shown above), old and silver.

My t-shirt is a gift from the subscriber group of FATEwear – I found it this morning in my inventory. And my pants are the Painter Pants from [Sheep Door] in beige, again available at the Mens Dept.

Another thing I simply adore about the Mens Dept. is that you not only get great and high quality fashion at the venue, but also furniture and homes especially designed for men. Todays blogpost was taken in the brilliant Fishtown Skyloft from DECO. The skyloft has 66 prims and is mod – so you can alter the room divider like I did to match it to your furniture. The skyloft has one huge windowfront and a second one with smaller windows. Plus the loft has a garage-door that leads you to a little balcony.

The trunks come from :::LITHIUM::: and are first of all a great decoration item but also have 6 sitting animations (3 male and 3 female). And of course you also can find the trunks at the Mens Dept.

The art in the background is from the LND Gallery and Hangout I blogged about two days ago. The portraits are from Chuck Close and prove that art can be man-ly also. The sofa I am sitting on comes from ~BAZAR~ and it has this brilliant marketplace-browsing animation included (with notebook included). There are also of course relaxing poses and a reading pose with book.

Talking about furniture – you can find great pieces for not so much money or even for free, when you know where to look. Many furniture stores have special marketplace deals or offer gifts and group gifts in their stores. The decor vases (3rd picture right) are in the same set from ~BAZAR~ like the sofa and all together it is a gift you can find in the store. And even more: The breakfast table with chair (3rd picture left) with rezable breakfast is again a gift from the same store. The wooden screen is from *TDS* and if you are looking for things to spice up your virtual homes I strongly recommend to visit the store since they offer well done furniture and decor pieces for a snip.
