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.

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.

Things that matter

Second Life is fun and that is a good thing. Our real life can have ups and downs, but second life is something like a vacation from the real world. Nevertheless there are real people behind every avatar. And this is what counts.

We can make second life a better place then maybe our real life is. In my humble opinion hate and discrimination has no place in our virtual enviroment. I found the website STAND4LOVE with a clear message: It is time! Open your heart. Open your mind.
For me it was no second thought to participate.

Rob your piggy banks, guys: the new collection of the Mens Dept. openes today and it is all kind of awesome! The Mens Dept. is definitely the place to get state of the art menswear and most of it is mesh. These incredible realistic goggles are from Pixlights Factory. I especially love the metallic texture on these. This is no item that was made between lunchbreak and afternoon nap. It is absolutely georgeous and it works in so many ways. As neat accessory also like for roleplay.

The leatherjacket/tee combination is from Havok – and Havok is one of these stores who work with mesh for men for some time now and pushes the quality to new levels with every release they do. The texturing on the jacket and also on the tee is flawless. You can only wear the jacket with t-shirt, but that is no downer since the  combination is brilliant. and on the plus side – there are two different combinations you can choose from.

Poses are essential for a blogger and for everyone who enjoys SL fotography. To find reasonable ones – well this is a different story. HISpose is a shop that offers poses made by a blogger. Sixx Yangtz is blogging for years now and he definitely knows how a good pose has to look like to work for a picture. You can check out his and his partners blog here: RYXX

I used in these pictures the poses from the Model III set.

Chilling

chilling1

Sunny days are here! And since I have had a rather rough weekend I decided to start the week easy. That means: chilling in my new beach house I got myself at the 5th Annual Home And Garden Expo. The prefab is from Designer Prims and what I like best about this house is the open architecture. The rooms float in each other and make a perfect hangout. The prefab comes with kitchen, pool and plants. There is also a furniture pack that I did not use in the pictures.

Bad thing – since I worked hard on the weekend I found absolutely nothing in my fridge except this old bone. Maybe I should sneak over to Mondras place to get myself some food. Nevertheless: welcome to my kitchen. The artwork in the background (and also the mouthy) are my recent finds from the Gallery Gift Shop. And again – if you are looking for artworks for your virtual home – the Gallery Gift Shop is the place to be. There is some stunning art to be found there.

Since I decided to have a slacker monday I refuse to take on any clothes but my retro briefs I got myself from the Mens Dept. It is from [Lazybum] and again it is extremely well textured with easy to adjust prim parts. The skin I am wearing is a preview for the upcoming Men Only Hunt. It comes from (red)sand and comes also with colorful tattoo layers and some trousers. A very reasonable gift if you ask me. And talking about gifts: also the rainbow shades are from the Men Only Hunt. They come from ShadZ. The lounge set is again from the 5th Annual Home And Garden Expo and comes from [Park Place]. The lounger have several animations (male and female) and they are copy – so you can rez as much of them as you want to.

A view to die for

There are uncountable fashion fairs in SL – and that is good of course. Even better: finally there is a fair for prefabs, furniture and plants! The 5th Annual Home And Garden Expo has just started this weekend and there is so much adorable stuff to show. Please be prepared that this entry will have a lot more pictures then my regular entries. But it is oh so worth it.

reBourne Prefabs introduce their new creation on the Home And Garden Fair. It is called “The Dome” and it is all kinds of awesome. Forget about square rooms and prims glued together in the usual way. This is for living! Face the facts – only a few people can afford luxory homes in real life – in SL outstanding prefabs are just a teleport away. And “The Dome” is lush luxory.

The above standing collage is giving you a glimps of what you can expect from this building. Splendid windowfronts with an appealing structure, tasteful textures and a modern appeal with a certain retro vibe. The Dome not only comes as “simple house” (and i see simple in connection with this building as an insultment) but with a surrounding like a pool, a bar, a fireplace, a kitchen and many stuff to explore more. If you tend to become bored with the homes you purchase way too easy – this one is definitely for you. It is impossible to become bored with this one. And if you are a style addict – welcome to your new home.

Above standing picture shows maybe best what I am talking about. It is like a snake shell for people. And – to get the connection to the headline of this post – you have a full front view from every single room in this building.  And now comes the best part: the house is 50% off for 24 hours. So if I (hopefully) convinced you better jump to the Home And Garden Expo to get you copy of this marvellous building.
