French Affair

French Affair 1

Around The World can be just around the corner – like in my case: France. Of course the Around The World Fair has an European section also and .evolve. – who, by the way, are also the organisers of the Around The World Fair – made some adorable unisex berets. So here am I, going all french with this little accessory. It shows also, that events are not only for girls. If you look close enough you definitely find in every place something to pimp up your manly wardrobe. All you need is imagination.

The leather pants I am wearing are also from Around The World. They come from 22769 ~ casual couture who have also some mens stuff in their African tent. I like the leather structure on those – it is quite crispy and even tho it is meant to be a raw and robust kind of leg wear it works also casual pretty well.

Spotlight on the jumpers I am showing you today: Reila Skins just released a new line of Autumn-ish jumpers called “Breath Of Autumn”. They are extremely casual and I love the argyle patterns a lot. There are many different styles available and you better check them all out. I personally love the green one in picture 1 and the red one shown here. The pullovers are mesh in male standard sizing and the folding is extremely natural.

The place I took my pictures in is a Dreamscene from Garden Of Dreams.  I blogged “The Village” already here, but the place is so versatile that it works in many different ways.

Having A Ball

Having A Ball

Busy, busy, busy – so much stuff is going on in secondlife and I really have to catch up – especially since I took a week off from blogging to play a bit RL. But anyways – let’s get started with L’Accessoires. The November Round just has started and again there are adorable items to be found. And this time many of the accessories are rather unisex then strict female. These shades are from BOOM and are called “Begas Shades”. They are available in five different colors and of course as fatpack also at the venue. The neck candy comes from REMY. The Beau Tassels come in many different colors and also in sliver and gold and also of course as fatpack. And I must say – i really love those – they are super dandy.

The silk flared pants I am wearing are one of many items 22769 ~ casual couture offer at the just started “Around The World” Fair and I really love the design of them. First of all they look way comfi and second it is something different for men then just jeans, chinos and shorts. I will show you some more stuff from “Around The World” in further blogposts and I am damn sure that Mondra also will because there can be found some adorable dresses. But for today – if you are looking for something different and cozy – get these silk flared pants from 22769.

If you read my blogposts for a time now you know that I have something like an “unofficial” hobby: to showcase the classic SL designs in furniture. And one of these pieces is definitely the Ball Chair from AKEYO. AKEYO – more known for their animations and dances – offer furniture, plants and a small line of clothing also. In that case I think it is appropriate to say that AKEYO is an old school merchant within SL. This is not a bad thing. The creator just does what he is up to and if you look at all his creations in a row there is still something like a line that connects all of them.
The Ball Chair is very Retro SciFi and I truly love the overall look of it. It also comes with a HUD that can change the color of the chair in all colors of the rainbow. And the eight included animations are – of course – extremely well done and lovely. If you have a thing for more modern furniture this one is definitely a must have. And anyways – the Ball Chair is just too much fun.

So – you do not go to fairs because all the stuff is for women anyways, right? Ah hell – it is always laggy and people run into you and you have a hard time buying some stuff if there is anything available for you (which is most of the time on the second floor in a small corner next to the restrooms), right? Well let me tell you – you will miss the best events in secondlife for sure. Like i.e. CINEMA: theme of the fair is of course the motion picture – and you really think there is only stuff for women? If you really do you are just so wrong. CINEMA offers A LOT of items for guys. And also – they have a barrier to exclude extensive scripts on the sim. No doubt – there will be lag of course – but the organizers have done a hell of a job to reduce the lag as much as possible. So there is no need for you to stay outside anymore.

Todays outfit is from 22769 ~ casual couture. Their theme is action and adventure and they nailed it down with the mesh zipper slipon and the camu pants. Both items are available in different color options and of course can become purchased seperately. Needless to say that they are also standard sized. I love the camu pants because have a 3/4 cut – that means: you also can add some boots without having mesh bits and pieces coming out of your boots. Also I love the wrinkles a lot that give the pants a way natural look.

The hair is the new release from [IRUCO]. And when I saw it it definitely reminded me of some guerilla kind of style with the messy curls. And this is the biggest asset of [IRUCO] – the haircuts do not look like from a fashion magazine but they look somewhat real. And these curls are not tameable for sure. So I had this army like outfit, the freedom fighter hair – all I needed now was a beard. And I found the right kind of beard at EMO-TIONS. “Seth” is a prim beard that looks quite natural.

Finally the skin I am wearing is the new Preston skin from KENTO. It matches perfectly the look since – even Preston is more kind of a boyish skin – the shading of the face makes you look a bit tougher then like with other skins.

Sleepless

Sleepless

Insomnia sometimes hits me – especially when I have a test the other day, or exams or something else important. No matter what I do to calm myself down – as soon as I lie in bed I am wide awake again. So when I went to FAIR and saw the “sleepless bed” from flowey & art dummy, especially with the poses included, I just had to take it, because this all looked way too familiar. The sleepless bed has a Land Impact of 7 and holds 11 animations including a reading one with book.

The Club Chair in my back is from Trompe Loeil and it is currently on sale. Hurry up because the sale ends 28. October! The Club Chair is available in 8 different colors and holds also 8 neat animations. And what I especially like about the chair is that it is not a supercute girly kind of furniture. It matches perfectly to boy rooms also.

Talking about rooms: L&K Prefabs released this adorable skybox for the new round of the Home And Garden Designer Warehouse. “The Attic” is a supercute sky home with flawless textures and it is 100% mesh. The Land Impact is 86 and I like about the skybox that it is copy and mod – so with some building skills you can alter it also to your needs. And again – I really love the texturing on this one – it just looks so real to me. It definitely has style and flair galore.

The Photographers Lamp is from [HANDverk] and is available in the current Mens Department. The design is a true classic and it is one of these special pieces that give your virtual home that special extra touch. This one should not be missed!

My everyday skin is – as you probably know, because I often tell – Toban from KENTO. And I was so happy to learn that KENTO finally released a new skin: “Preston” comes in 4 different color tones (from above left to below right T1 – T4) and each package includes the skin, the skin with teeth, eyebrow shaper and eyes. It has been a while since KENTO released the last skin – but the designer definitely used that time well because you can see on Preston the progress and the subtile shading. With skins in general there are always some critical points like seams on the hands i.e. and I did not notice one single seam on the skin. So this is definitely a high quality skin for a fair price.

In general you should visit KENTO anyways if you are looking for a new skin because all older skins are on sale now! And if this got you all excited – there is even more, because I spotted some “Coming Soon” placeholders in the store and this can only mean: KENTO will release some new skins soon. But in the meantime: Preston is definitely a top state of the art skin.

The white pearl undies are the current Freebie at VITAMEN and I am always surprised with what ideas the designer comes up. When I look in my undies drawer I see a lot of boxers but VITAMEN truly pushes the underwear fashion forward. And the freebie comes not only in white but also in gold, is extremely well done and textured – and you can not ask for anything more.
