There is a new fun event in town and you definitely do not want to miss this one: CINEMA. CINEMA is a fantastic huge mesh multiplex build as venue for a very unique and brilliant sales exhibition. You can find the sections SciFi, Action/Adventure, Romance, Musical/Fantasy, Horror, XXX and Film Noir – and the merchants crafted exclusive items dedicated to the genre they are in. And all participating merchants really outdone themeselfes with imagination and ideas.
Todays blogpost is devoted to the arty Film Noir genre. This fabulous suit comes from [HASTE] and it is not only mesh in standard sizing but also has a lot of wearing options. You can wear the ensemble with blazer and without for a cooler Tarantino like look. Definitely one of my favorite finds at the venue. Another brilliant idea is the film noir shadow box from la petite morte. It works with the new projector function of secondlife and it is throwing way dramatic shadows as you can see in the pictures. So if you are going for a Hitchcock kind of scenery this item is a MUST for you. The gun in my hand is included in the package and also a pose I did not use here.
Finally the glasses are from K_gs and are their new item for the Gallery Gift Shop – and it really nails the look down. The BottleBottom Glasses are lovely made and just add the special extra.
List of stuff:
The Vintage Fair has not only retro clothing to offer – there is also a large variety of skins to be found. I personally like the Ezra skin from Aeva // Heartsick. It is very young looking and reminds me a bit of the 80ies where men in general seemed to be a bit softer and more boyish. Ezra is available in 5 skin tones – like I showed in my fake ad board in the picture. The skin options in every pack are with brown and without and also with body hair (well in this case more the happy trail), with pubic hair and with no hair at all. There is also a shape included in the pack, facial hair tattoos and also hairbases and teeth. So it definitely is a brilliant value pack.
The shirt I am wearing is one of the male items from 22769 at the vintage fair. It is an open army shirt in green with neat little details. The chest pockets are not only textured but are really standing out. I also like that the shirt is not invisible from the inside. The denims are also from 22769 and are the slim cut denims true blue (hello Madonna) from their flagship store. The Men’s Leather Deck Shoes Navy are the latest release from DUH! You can also find a brown pair in the currently running Menstuff Hunt.

Hair: Dura **Dura-Boy**07 (Black)
Pants: 22769 ~ casual couture – Slim Cut Jeans True Blue
Shoes: DUH! – Leather Deck Shoes Navy
The Gallery Gift Shop turns one – and like Mondra already told you there is a hunt going on on the Gallery Gift Shop Ground. And this is one of the cutest ideas ever. While you are hunting for picture frames you not only get the gifts from the merchants – you also get the frames. And most merchants have put their portrait in the frames to personalize it. This gave me the possibility to make my own Gallery Gift Shop Gallery with the artists and merchants from the Gallery Gift Shop.
Todays look also comes from The Gallery Gift Shop – and matching the anniversary theme 22769 ~ casual couture offer the “champaign supernova” mesh outfit containing the longsleeve and the champaign chinos. The longsleeve and the chinos can become worn seperately of course. The tux leather loafers are from NYU and the scarf comes from Tee*fy.
I took the pictures in the abiss mesh studio apartement – alas I altered a few things like the art provided with the prefab. I replaced it with the “Hallucinatio botanicus” painting from Gabrielle Swindlehurst, who is a Gallery Gift Shop artist from day one of the outstanding sales event.
If you have not yet – you simply must pay the Gallery Gift Shop a visit. It is brand new – a complete new build and enviroment which is a mishmash between an art gallery, a park, a shop and a hangout – very cute and adorably done.

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)
If there is something like a trend in SL I would say that tribal motives are kind of having a renaissance. I see more and more items that are inspired from different cultures – or, like in case with the v-neck I am wearing, take patterns and combine them to something completely new. The Jax mesh v-neck from CheerNo is the current offer in the Mens Department. You can choose between two styles. And the v-necks come in male standard sizing. Even if there are many colors used in the print I especially love about the shirt that it is not too loud.
The cool sun visors (not yet released) and the tote bag come from :sey. The tote bag is even a gift – you have to join the :sey group to get it. Nevertheless: I need to protect myself from the sun anyways since I am rather fair and get a sunburn quite easy. So the visors come quite handy for me.
List of stuff:
Hair: [kik] hair Ethan (dark brown)
T-Shirt: [CheerNo] Jax V-Neck Tee – Tribal Print 2 mes (for Mens Dept.)
Bag and Visors: :sey mainstore
