Monochrome

Monochrome 1

If you read our blog for some time you might have noticed that my blog posts are often influenced by my Real Life. I just noticed that by reading back some of my older posts. And even if I try to avoid it somehow bits and pieces pop up anyways. I guess that is my style of writing then. Well todays blog post is no exception, cause I spent the last two days at home, banned from second life, to write an essay for university. And I spent hours nailed on my chair on my working space. And now I log back in SL to show you: a working space.

Apple Fall – or short [AF] – are joining the current September Cycle of FaMESHed and they offer this monochromatic set. It is completely meshed and I absolutely love the patterns and the black and white feel of it. Of course you can purchase every single piece by its own, but i recommend to buy the whole set, cause it just matches perfectly together.

Monochrome 2

The set contains a table, the zigzag chairs, a fireplace the lamp, pictures and decoration, a sideboard and many other wonderful things also. And I guess you agree by watching the pictures that the texturing of these items is wonderful. It is not too loud and still nails the style perfectly. And by the way – you can see all participating designers for FaMESHed here.

According to the monochromatic topic I chose my todays outfit. The new released two piece suit from Kauna is rich on details – even the buttons are real and meshed. And the Otis Oxford shoes from Miamai in black/grey just match the overall look perfectly.

No doubt that mesh has a great impact on furniture designers also. And there is yet another great furniture store that just opened its gates: { { BSD Designs Studio } } is – right now – a small store but with the potential to grow really big in sl. What I personally like about the designs is on the one hand the quirkyness and on the other hand the functionability of them. My favorite piece is definitely the “tree table”. It is minimalistic but on the other hand splendid with details. Another good example what mesh can do and how it will change how we live in second live. The bonsai tree is also part of the FaMESHed set from [AF]

For todays blogpost I used again the wonderful – also completely meshed – With Aroha (Love) House from Designer Prims I blogged about in my last post.

Sway

Well – Mondra Kira wanted to have an invitation to the Vintage Fair in her last Blog Post – and here I am. Nothing brings more your inner gentleman out like the Vintage Fair. May it be the enviroment, may it be the ancient music playing on the landstream, may it be the clothing – all of a sudden we hold the door when a woman wants to enter the room, we seat her on the dinner table, we bring out all the good manners. In other words – our mothers would be proud of us.

When marimba rhythms start to play, dance with me, make me sway.
Diesel Works made two exclusive couple poses for the Vintage Fair called “T embrace” and “Quebrada”, which is shown in above picture. They are fun poses and indeed very “good old times”. I am wearing a mesh suit from Epicosity. It is a classic pin striped double breasted suit and very elegant. My shoes are from MIAMAI and are the Otis Oxfords in Black and Grey.

Mondra is wearing the Jacky Sheath Mesh Dress and also the black pumps from 22769 ~ [casual couture]. Her skin is from {.essences.}. It is called Moira and different make ups are also available at the {.essences.} booth at the Vintage Fair.

Gambit

Gambit 1

Big events throw their shadows over the grid and finally the summer break seems to be gone for good. Looking forward to Vintage Fair? OMG me also, cause all the hip stuff will be there. Think about the new RL and SL fashion hype Boho which comes more or less from the 70ies. Or men in suits that never went out of date. As bizarre as it sounds – the Vintage Fair is one of the top state of the art fashion events this autumn.

One of the things you can find at the Vintage Fair is the HIS52card Pick Up Pose with the vintage cards. And excuse my geekish moment of the day: don’t you think I look like Gambit from the X-Men? I simply love it and it is a brilliant pose for taking pictures with. In general HISpose never fail to surprise me with witty ideas.

Let’s talk about the outfit: the black mesh blazer is from Ilaya and is the mens item at LIMITED BAZAAR. It comes as plain version (worn here) and also with t-shirt in many different sizes and alpha layer. The Kuk black jeans and the wonderful detailed Otis Oxford shoes come from MIAMAI and are the latest mesh releases for men. The trousers are well made and I especially love the fabric on them. And the Otis Oxfords are just a piece of art. The texturing is flawless – they just look so real.

Beachwear

bathing_season_1

Summer in RL means summer in secondlife also. Strange enough, cause somewhere always is summer in secondlife. But nevertheless: the bathing season has begun. And it is perfect timing, cause what is the best clothing to showcase a skin? Right, beachwear. So let us start with the skin first: Belleza has joined the Mens Dept. with a special edition of the Ewan Skin. And you can see it in all different views in this blogpost. To tell something completely new about the mens line of Belleza is simply impossible – the skin is, of course, flawless. It gives me a bit older appearance then my regular skin, but I kinda like it a lot. What I personally love about the Belleza men skins is that they are not uber-buffed. So you do not look like a bodybuilder with this one. And an absolute plus always with Belleza is the fine definition of the face. And now comes the best part: you can get the skin for just 150 L$ at the Mens Dept! And of course demos are available.

Another major brand in SL is Miamai – famous for their quirky but always wearable designs. I absolutely fell in love with the new Swimmwear Collection. The swim trunks are mesh and you can either choose between retro patterns like above on the Aron Shorts or vibrant colors (shown below).

bathing_season_2

The Steve Shorts from Miamai are also mesh and have a more boarderish look. Perfect for every kind of pool- or beach party and definitely one of the must haves this summer. The Little Pool House comes from Designer Prims and is the current Groupgift (the Group is free to join). It is a small beach house with pool and two rooms that – typical for the designs of Designer Prims – float into each other. A brilliant prefab – especially as free gift!

bathing_season_3

Here you can have a close look on the face of the Ewan Skin from Belleza and also of course on the rigging of the Hawaii Blue Steve Shorts from Miamai since the pose I choose is rather extreme. But as you can see – no distortions or spikes. The shorts just fit perfectly.

In the last picture finally I show you something from the inside of the Little Pool House. And here comes another strength about the layouts of Designer Prims: the prefabs are not overtextured or convulted. It leaves you many room for your own personality and ideas. On the left I am wearing the Nylon Melon Steve Shorts and on the right another find from the Mens Dept.: the Pool Party Briefs from Lazybum with sculpted bulge and drawstrings. The beanbags are from [kusshon] and are also available at the Mens Dept.
