I love autumn – or let’s precise it: I love the colors in autumn and how the nature changes – oh and I definitely love autumn food. What I do not like that much in autumn is indeed the weather and the chill in the air. You know – when you go out you are never dressed right. Either way too warm, or you freeze your ass off.
Autumn in secondlife is kind of special because it mainly is the, how I call it, romantic side of autumn. Like pumpkins and fallen leafes and thanksgiving and all that wonderful stuff. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with that because it displays exactly that what people love about autumn. And when it comes to clothing you are never dressed wrong (weatherwise) in SL.
Nevertheless: Autumn hit the Mens Dept hard. I already showed you yesterday the Dufflecoat. Today it is the Parka from 22769 ~ casual couture. Also the parka is rigged mesh and it has mindblowing details like buttons and the wonderful hood with the orange lining. It just looks so real with all the folds and wrinkles. You will find the parka in four different colors in the new Mens Dept (opening on October 5th): black (shown here), white, green and blue.
And also from the Mens Dept are the Painter Pants from [Sheep Door]. I love the cut of those and also the folding is quite natural. Definitely a keeper if you are bored by your blue jeans. The Painter Pants are available in black and beige, and also in red, green and yellow check pattern.
Autumn also arrived at [CIRCA]. The “Time for Harvest” Fall Wheelbarrow is a wonderful prob and decoration for your autumn garden. Filled with all kinds of pumpkins it also includes this supercute pose shown above. The Wheelbarrow can be found at the Designer Warehouse and you better hurry up because the current cycle closes today! The vintage harvest banquet in the background is also from [CIRCA] and it is way lovely – perfect for having a nice dinner with friends under an autum theme.
Oh and in case you wonder where I took todays pictures: it is again a wonderful skybox, or better said dreamscene, from Garden Of Dreams. The cabin comes in an autumn and in a winter version. So it is 2 skyboxes in one – and it is way lovely!
List of stuff:
Table: CIRCA – Vintage Harvest Banquet
Dreamscene: Garden of Dreams – The Cabin
And here it starts again: the third edition of the Runway Perfect Hunt – the hunt that brings you everything a model needs. And lets start with this neat prob from WetCat. It is a red carpet with loads of poses for him and her included – some are shown on above picture. So if you want to make a glamour shot – this is definitely the right gift for you. The complete outfit is the very generous gift from FATAL and it is called “Westwood Prince”. It is mesh in male standard sizing and has many wearing options also. The shoes are also included in the gift (and also the socks that you can hardly see in the image 😉 )
The bag comes from L’accessoires and is the item from NYU – since my today look is blue-ish, green-ish i decided to get me the “Neutral Blue Briefcase”. The briefcase comes with holding animation for left or right hand – and with no animations also – so perfect for every purpose.
List of stuff:
Outfit: FATAL – Westwood Prince (mesh in male standard sizing) (for the Runway Perfect Hunt 3)
Prob: ::WetCat:: – Perfect Red (for the Runway Perfect Hunt 3)
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!
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.
List of stuff:
Hair: Dura – The 2nd year Anniversary hair (Black)
Blindfold: DownDownDown – Blindfold (for the Gallery Gift Shop)
The Vintage Fair will start tomorrow – and it is about time that I tell you a bit more about this fabulous event. This time you will find three sims full of shops that offer clothing from different decades. The sim was built by Trompe Loeil and it is – like Mayfair – all mesh. It is a neat old fashioned street of houses that winds over the three sims. A really wonderful enviroment and also the music stream will put you in a vintage mood like in no time.
Of course such an event is not possible without sponsors. And the sponsors this time are: Aura, Belleza,Cheeky Pea, Cold Logic, Indyra Originals, oOo Studio, PurpleMoon Creations, Trompe Loeil and GizzA Creations. And talking about GizzA Creations – the fabulous mesh suit I am wearing is one of the new items GizzA have prepared for the Vintage Fair. It comes in different sizes and everything you see is included – so also the shoes, the open bow tie and also the fedora hat which is one of the best crafted ones in my collection. If you have a thing for suits you definitely should check the booth from GizzA at the Vintage Fair.
Mondra and myself decided to build a little set where we will shoot our Vintage Fair finds. However – the Streetlamps “Old Street” are the items from Motionless and they come with cute poses not shown in my post (I will do a post with Mondra together since it is a couple pose). The Lamps are insanely well done and look as realistic as it can get. Definitely one of the best finds at the Vintage Fair.
List of stuff:
Location: Self built set
Soundtrack: The Sparks – When Do I Get To Sing “My Way”
Hot Dog anyone? And the steaks also look like they are well done by now. Summer is definitely BBQ time – and I guess everywhere around the world. As soon as the weather is getting better you can see folks wandering to parks or to the seaside with their grills and cool bags. And nothing beats cooking under the plain sky. *Funky*Junk* not only offer the grillmaster and a cool bag as item for the Mens Dept – they also have a picnic table (with meals included), a lounge chair and a complete BBQ-patio – and it is all kinds of cute. Even more – it is the perfect item to have some fun with your friends and to have a chat while you enjoy the pixelbeer and virtual chicken wings.
My BBQ look is also from the Mens Dept. The cropped chinos are from DROP and the black note tank is from [LV]. Around my neck you can see the inverted version of the KOSH Epiphany necklace. And also my hair can be found there. It comes from [Atro Patena].
And also Insufferable Dastard joined again the Mens Dept. ID brought us many wonderful made mesh eyes and also in this round there are beautiful ones you can choose from. I am wearing the solid green ones but you also can get some heterochromic ones which is kind of special for an unique look. Again a fantastic idea!

Hair: [Atro Patena] – Hector black (for the Mens Dept.)
Eyes: .ID. Heterochromia solid green (for the Mens Dept.)
Necklace: KOSH – Epiphany Necklace inverted (for the Mens Dept.)
Tank: [LV] – SOLIDe Tank Note black (mesh) (for the Mens Dept.)
