The Peacock and the Deep Blue Sea

The Peacock and the Deep Blue Sea

I love green. And somehow it is funny how this translates to my second life. I mean – we can do everything in here and we can be whatever we want to but it is these little things like a favorite color that gives us personality. Green is also the main color of this rather flamboyant Dandy Jacket by 22769 ~ casual couture. There are four different styles available at the Mens Dept. and well – clearly I picked the greenish one. The interesting part: you can wear the jacket also without shirt and regarding the shirt itself: there are six different colors in every package of the Dandy Jacket. Again – the shirts can not be worn solo since they are only covering the bits the jacket does not and I assume (without having any clue about making mesh clothing – I am only good in wearing it) it has something to do with the whole rigging process. But anyways – the deal is as fabulous as the jacket itself is.

Green again. If you are reading our blog for some time now you hardly see me wearing other eyes then green once. And believe me – I tried. But somehow it looks plain wrong when I wear blues or hazels or greys or even reds and what else the creators have to offer in SL. The eyes are mesh, and as the quality tells they come again from Poetic Colors. Lano Ling, the creator, dedicated the new selection of his eyes to the ocean. And indeed – the colors and reflections are crisp and wonderful realistic. I am wearing “sea weed” but of course you find other colors also at the display of Poetic Colors at the Mens Dept.

My Cup of Tea

My Cup Of Tea

The Mens Dept opened the doors again for a new cycle. And if you did not spent the last six months under a rock on Mars you already know that the Mens Dept. is the place to be for up to date fashion and more for men. And the Mens Dept becomes better and better. What I absolutely love about this event is that you not only gain clothing and accessories, but also buildings, furniture and other neat stuff – especially designed for men.

Todays look comes – of course – from the new Mens Dept. The cropped slim pants come from [LOVE RE ME] and they are available in four different styles. They are mesh in three sizes and of course demos are available at the venue. I especially like that the badges can be added. The hoodie comes from !gO! and it is available in many different colors. Each pack contains two versions of the hoodie: one with hood down (shown here) and one with hood up. And since autumn is knocking on our doors it is about time to update your hoodie collection.

Recognized my new haircut? This one is not from the Mens Dept. but from [INK], a store I found at the hairfair. It was one of the shops I always wanted to check out but always forgot. Well today I remembered while cleaning my inventory. I like the messy style of the Steez Hair a lot and it also gives you kind of a youthful look.

My Cup Of Tea

I mentioned buildings and furniture above already – and [kusshon] again provided an awesome piece of fun furniture for the Mens Dept. The “Paradise Hanging Chair” is just that type of thing every man needs in his “boy corner” or bachelor shag. The chair is available in lighter tones (shown here) and in darker tones and again it comes with a lot of animations and accessories. Some of them are shown above, but there are a lot more included. Like always with [kusshon] the accessory like coffee mug, martini glass, newspaper and tablet pc are trans so you can share it with your friends.

Finally the Tea House from :::LITHIUM::: is awesomeness in cans. I so love the minimalistic style of it and it is easy to set up. The texturing is flawless and the building itself is a gem. Also there is enough room for your ideas and this is by far the best asset of buildings: to step back when it comes to your ideas of decoration. Anyways – you can get the Tea House for a snip at the Mens Dept. And believe me: you need it!

Big Weekend

Big Weekend 1

Hello weekend – finally. Todays blogpost has the title “Big Weekend” and indeed it is huge, tremendous, splendid… you name it. Firstly this will be one of the longest blogposts I have ever written so far because – second – there is so much going on in SL right now that it is hard to keep track. The Summer Season is over and Autumn Release Madness starts exactly today.

Okays – first my todays look. Casual, isn’t it? Well as some of you might have heard already there is a “new” kid in town called FATEwear. Damien Fate, who is one of the first creators who got into rigged mesh clothing – amongst many things he is responsible for a lot of releases from ColdLogic – finally decided to start his own brand. And now comes the good news: FATEwear is dedicated to menswear! Next good news: the outfit shown above is for free – just jump to FATEwear, subscribe yourself and voila – get your gift. Final good news: make a picture in your new received gear, load it up in the FATEwear flickr group and have the chance to win the WHOLE initial mesh collection of FATEwear.

Not that new but still fabulous are the rigged mesh men feet from Slink. They just fit perfectly and look extremely natural. And the tinting is way easy if you follow the instructions.

List of stuff:
Outfit: FATEwear – Carter (free Subscribo Gift)
Feet: SLink – Mens Natural Barefeet

Big Weekend 2

I have the pleasure to show you in this post the new release from Designer Prims: the complete meshed With Aroha (Love) House. And it is pure luxory. Of course the texturing is flawless but one of the best things about the houses of Designer Prims is the layout. It is the perfect balance between windows and walls to place your personal stuff. The With Aroha House has a small kitchen also (shown left) and so many fotogenic corners that one blog post for sure is not enough to show at least all the fascinating details.

HISpose just released a new pose set called HISbeer. Why, count me in – it’s weekend. Like all poses from HISpose the HISbeer poses are well done and charming. And the idea – as simple as it might sound – is brilliant. The posters in my back are from Iconic and are a groupgift from the shop. So if you are looking for some youthful wall decoration with an unbeatable music taste – check the store out!

Huge window fronts scream for decoration. I am not a big fan of curtains but I found these adorable origami paper cranes. They are mesh and each crane is just one prim – so the perfect decoration item. And also these cranes are a group gift. They come from (Elate!). You do not need a groupslot to join the group since (Elate!) are using a group vendor where you can check past messages – and the origami paper cranes are a past gift in the subscribo.

List of stuff:
Pose: HISpose – HISbeer
Poster: Iconic – Indie Poster (Groupgift)
Decoration: (Elate!) – Origami Paper Cranes (Subscribo Gift)

Big Weekend 3

A few hunts start this weekend – and I was especially looking forward to the Four Walls Hunt. The hunt is dedicated to interior design, homes and decoration. Each huntgift is 10 L$ but on the webpage you can see the prices and decide on your own which one you like. Anyways – the gifts in this hunt are brilliant and definitely worth it. Shown above is the  ‘Falling’ Wall Decor fro {what next} It is a way cute wall painting with a mesh ladder and poses – I love this one so much and it brings fun and color to your walls. The lamps above me are also from the Four Walls Hunt. They are from Organica Specialty Trees, meshed and go on and off by mouseclick. Two of many Must Haves from the hunt!

List of stuff:
Decoration: {what next} – ‘Falling’ Wall Decor (Four Walls Hunt 10L$)
Lamps: Organica Specialty Trees – Work Lamps (Four Walls Hunt 10L$)

Big Weekend 4

And yet another fabulous gift from above mentioned Four Walls Hunt: this dinner table including the chairs (animations included) and the decoration are part of the gift from +sanctuaire+ called “Garden Party”. The gift contains also a party room, but the furniture works so well also as stand alone. What I especially love about this set is the excellent texturing – and also it fits perfect either in really modern houses, like the one from Designer Prims, and also in rustic homes.

List of stuff:
Table, chairs and table decoration: +sanctuaire+ – Garden Party (Four Walls Hunt 10L$)

Big Weekend 5

This adorable shelf is also a huntgift from the upcoming “What Do You Sell” Hunt. And it is no wonder why it matches so perfect the house from Designer Prims because – it is the gift from Designer Prims. The “Funky Shelving” comes with all accessories and also with animations and is definitely a brilliant gift. Make sure you check the store hintgiver for the hideout!

List of stuff:
Furniture: Designer Prims – Funky Shelving (WDYSH Gift)

Big Weekend 6

Finally it is time to show you the With Aroha (Love) House in all beauty after strolling through the inside. And you can see that the design is on the one hand modern, but also very sophisticated. You have a ponton with table, plants and chairs to meet with your friends outside. Of course you also have a pool and the balance between the main building and the entrance is marvelous. Definitely one of the best houses in SL so far and if you are looking for a new home I strongly recommend this one. Like said above – even with that amount of pictures I simply can not do the build justice cause there are still so many corners I have not showed you yet. But best idea anyways is to go to Designer Prims and see it for yourself.

List of stuff:
Prefab: Designer Prims – With Aroha (Love) House (mesh)

Zen

Zen 1

Welcome to my kind of Asia inspired Friday blogpost: I mixed for this one finds from the Mens Dept. (hurry up – it closes end of this month for a new round) and from the currently running Gallery Gift Shop – so here we go:

The “Buddha Garden” from KIDD was already in the last round of the Gallery Gift Shop but somehow I managed to always forget about it since it matches just so perfect in the enviroment of the new Gallery Gift Shop. However – I remembered it again and finally bought it. And it is a masterpiece. Not only that is very decorative – it also has some wonderful poses (female and male ones) included and it is also only 20 prims. The size of the Buddha Garden is about 12 x 12 meter – so it is also not too big. In other words: it fits everywhere. The Buddha Garden comes no copy and no mod but transfer – so it makes a perfect gift also!

Zen 2

The kimono I am wearing is one of the items from [Sheep Door] for the Mens Dept. and it is mesh in three different sizes. I am showing you the style Mizutama. The Yukata is well rigged and also a brilliant idea. I love the playful polkadot patterns on this one very much. The blindfold is the item of DownDownDownin the Gallery Gift Shop – and you can get it in very different styles and colors. Bloody ones are also offered which make great items for roleplay.

Hidden Cove

Hidden Cove 1

Welcome to lazy Sunday everyone, my favorite day of the week. Sundays for me always have been hanging around days – like chilling, reading books, doing nothing and relax. And thankfully I have two very different creations I can present to you today that go oh so well together.

GizzA just released an awesome nautical suit for guys – just the perfect sea themed comfi clothing. It comes with a loose shirt, the bermudas and also the shoes. There are a few things I really want to mention about this outfit: I have the impression that mesh clothing, and especially mens mesh clothing, has entered a complete new level. Like with the shirt – the first mesh shirt releases have been quite tight ones that followed the avatars body perfectly. On the one hand it was kind of interesting to see what mesh actually can do – and these have been the first shirts released ever. Now shirts, like the GizzA one, follow a more natural flow. It is bulky, it has folds, it looks real. Same goes with the trousers. I noticed that many designer put a lot of detailing in their mesh pants recently. These Bermuda Shorts have real pockets – just like normal pants have. And this seems to become standard by now which is nice to see. So there is development in mesh clothing and I am sure that we will be surprised about the things that are about to come within the next months.

Hidden Cove

Back to the Nautical Suit. It is available in two different colors: Red (in the first pic) and more traditional blue of course. I have to say I love the fact that shoes are also included in this outfit – and the sneakers are really awesome and full of neat details. The Nautical Suits come in three different sizes.

Oh and the second creation I am going to introduce you today is again a Dreamscene from Garden of Dreams. This one is called Hidden Cove and is more or less a beach hang out. It is kind of cute and like a mini-sim for you and your friends or your significant other. You find not only the tent (shown above) and the camping place, but also a hammock and a pier full with animations (solo and couple). With this one I am extremely impressed with the texturing and with the plants. Also the scenery has realistic waves – in other words: if you want to escape – this is the place to be.
