Halfpipe

Halfpipe 1

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.

A few days ago I blogged a preview for the new Reila Skin Noah. Today I learned on the Reila Skins Webpage that the skin finally is released. Noah comes in different options for facial hair (shown below) and also comes with tattoo layers for body hair (like in above picture) and teeth and also the shape (not shown here). What I really love about the skin is that it is a unique creation. I really like how the face looks on my shape and it appears to me a bit oriental what I absolutely like. This skin is definitely a keeper.

I went to The Outlet Sales Room today which is a pretty new event in second life. You find very well known brands there like Trompe Loeil or Barnsworth Anubis – and you also find Garden Of Dreams there who offer a Dreamscene for a steal. Usually the Dreamscenes are between 1000 – 2000 L$ which is an absolute accurate price for the excellent texturing and crafting work. The Dreamscene “Tibet” is at The Outlet Sales Room available for just 100L$ and I strongly recommend getting this one.

First of all you have a brilliant themed skybox with many possibilities. “Tibet” is more or less a relaxation enviroment with a huge bath in the center and sitting possibilities around with many different poses also (single and couple). So it is a tibetian themed spa when your second life is getting too hectic. I love the subtile sound design also – so if you enter the bath you hear the water. Leafes are floating around the enviroment – but not too much that it looks unrealistic. Indeed this is one of the most fine assets of Garden Of Dreams with every of their creations: they create a comprehensible place with every scenery they do.

Next you learn the best about the Dreamscene concept of Garden Of Dreams. Because – even if the scene works as permanent skybox (that is included) – you also receive the “Bubble-Rezzer” for the Dreamscene. If you do not want to rez the scene permanently you can just rez the bubble on the floor, sit in it (and you also can take friends with you) and it transports you to the temp rezzed scene where you can stay as long as you wish. Even better – you can load the Bubble-Rezzer with as much Dreamscenes as you like so you can even swap between scenes.

And finally: the whole skybox is copy and mod. You can even rez the scene on the ground if you want to have a tibetian themed sim and alter each part of it. If we talk about multi funktionality of buildings in second life – this one definitely sets a mark. So you definitely should get this one.

Sadness

Sadness 1

Yesterday I have had one of these moments – and before you run away: nope – this will not become an emo-post.

I have collected some furniture pieces I wanted to show you over the last couple of days when I heard the message that BAFFLE is having a closing sale. And actually that made me kind of sad since I loved the creations of Samantha Smadga a lot. And I really hope that she will come back soon again with maybe a complete new business. So if you like BAFFLE you better hop to the mainstore and grab as much things as you can get because everything is reduced to 55L$ and after November 15th it will be gone for good. So did I and I got myself the Le Petite Reve Skybox which is a wonderful representation of the astonishing crafting and texturing abilities of Samantha.

Trompe Loeil have just released the first Christmas items – and when I went to their store and saw the Star Light Pendant Lamps (come in 3 different sizes, copy, mod and turn on by mouseclick) I knew I had to get those. My mother has the same ones in RL and she always hangs them up around X-mas time. So it really is some kind of home feeling for me. The thing with furniture and decoration in second life is kind of interesting because the realism is nearly unbeatable anymore. And especially with these lamps I associate childhood feelings, home and parents. And yeah – I went a bit emo when I hung them up in my new appartment but honestly – this is a good thing. We are talking about a virtual world here in which you literally can do everything. And if there are some items that have that effect on you because you mishmash them with your real life experiences then it can not be a bad thing. So much for “second life is just a game”.

The Small Enamel Cabinet from %Percent is another one of these pieces because my granny used to have one of these and I have all good feeling about it because the cookie jar was standing just on top of it. The club chair is also from Trompe Loeil and I blogged this one before in my post Sleepless. The art is from the current Gallery Gift Shop and comes from Chiana Oh. And the Bonsai Tree with table is from ~Hanaya~. You can change the seasons of the bonsai tree by click and it is just a wonderful piece of decoration. A non changeable bonsai tree is also available as second year anniversary November groupgift at ~Hanaya~.

The Mens Dept is also a wonderful place to find furniture made with men in mind. The Angle Frames “It’s A Keeper” are the share of Cheeky Pea and the crate shelf comes from floorplan – both items are mesh and wonderful and unique pieces. The utility tables with the book and also the framed Winter Canvas are from {ililo} and also can be found in the current Mens Dept. The rug is again from BAFFLE.

Sadness 4

I decorated the bedroom of the Le Petite Reve Skybox with another bargain furniture piece from the Mens Dept. The “sorting shelf” is from Vespertine and just matches perfectly the other furniture pieces you can find at the Mens Dept. Either the bleached wood is kind of a trend right now in the furniture scene within second life or the creators have coordinated themselfes. Nevertheless – you can get this pieces all on one location and if my pictures do not show you should believe me – they are wonderful.

The “Earnst TV” is from Cheeky Pea and you can change the texture of the screen and the set by mouseclick.

My todays look is again the Corduroy Skater Trousers from 22769 ~ casual couture that can also be found at the Mens Dept. Likewise my glasses from BALACLAVA – the Kip Glasses can be found in different colors at the Mens Dept. And each set includes different options. The shirt is a new release from {MoYaz}. The shirt comes in plain options and also in the 70’s collection – and I absolutely adore these. Shown above is the “Buttoned Shirt 70’s Beige”.

And last but not least: The Barrel Bed from Trompe Loeil which can be found at the current round of FaMESHed. It matches perfectly the previous releases from Trompe Loeil and is somewhat quirky with the barrel shape and texturing. The bed is available in many different styles – shown here is Brown and Freesia.

Drive By Shooting

Drive By Shooting 1

I just have way too much fun with my new bike but on the other hand the brand new shiny Mens Dept is knocking on your doors. So I decided to make a post to give you a preview of things to get at the number one fashion event for lads before I hit the road again.

So let’s start with my look: The awesome mesh jacket comes from [LOVE RE ME] can be worn with or without hoodie. Also awesome: I used to have EXACTLY the same jacket in RL a couple of years ago – same color, same style. So it was clear that I have to pick this one. Of course the jacket is available in many colors and there are also female versions included. The pants are from 22769 for the Mens Dept. The corduroy skater pants have super realistic textures and I especially love the bags. Also the pants are available in a lot of colors. The sneakers are an old group gift from [JP]:dsg. that is still available!

Todays skin is also a preview for the upcoming release Noah from REILA Skins. It is a good idea to check the Reila Skins Webpage for the exact release date and of course also the tanning options. I am wearing Noah tan 2. What I find quite interesting with Noah is the very subtile oriental touch. I definitely will show you some more of the skin in further blogposts so see this one as a teaser.

But back to the bike: PIXLIGHTS FACTORY are also taking part in the new Mens Dept. but the bike is not available there. In fact I went lucky and got it from the Lucky Toilet in the PIXLIGHTS FACTORY mainstore. And it is big fun also. And as superplus it also has my fav color. But anyways – may it by motorbike, train, plane, car or teleport: you MUST check out the new collection at the Mens Dept opening 5th November. The designers again pushed the quality of mens items to a new level. And you also can make a snip there!

Skulls

Skulls 1

Happy Halloween. Todays post is dedicated to skulls – because I just found two items that match the theme perfectly. First of all there is this “Skulls’n Bones Necklace” by Whims&Wishes that comes in 4 different versions (depends on how much necklace you want to hang around your neck – shown here is version 3). All four different kind of necklaces come in a chest and spine attach option. And if you hurry up you even can get the necklace for a snip during the Woeful Wednesday Sale!

Skulls 2

The second item I want to show you today is this brilliant Louis mesh leather jacket with tee. {MoYaz} started a complete new mesh mens line and this is the first release. The jacket itself is available in many different colors and since I love green I choose the obvious one. With the jacket comes a HUD that allows you to change the texture of the T-shirt. And of course there is a black and a white tee also included in the HUD – but for me the prints definitely are more fun. And also you can wear the jacket without a shirt (alpha layer is included and the “no shirt” option can also be found in the HUD). So one jacket with multiple wearing options – definitely a good deal for me.
