Mancave

mancave 1

Greetings. The Mens Dept entered the March round – and as always many brilliant designs and stuff to be found here for a snip. Not only clothing and accessory, but also furniture and decor. But let us start with my todays look: the hair comes from Uw.st and is called “Prince”. Uw.st are the first time in the Mens Dept and they even went with two different hairstyles. The asymmetric shirt I am wearing comes from the guys from 22769 and it is available in 4 different styles. The pants are from Razorblade Jacket. The great thing about those pants is that they come with a HUD – so you can change the color by one mouseclick. My shoes are from [ JP ] .dsg and are the Varial Sneakers – also controlled by HUD.

Like said above the Mens Dept. also holds a lot of furniture with men in mind. So if you want to decorate your mancave you should pay the Mens Dept. a visit. The skybox I shot my pictures today is from 22769 ~ [bauwerk] and it is their share for The Challenge TUDOR (I have written about The Challenge already here.). It is the perfect place for a single man in sl cause it has two rooms and I especially love the ceiling details and the warm colors in it.

List of stuff:
Hair: UW.St – Prince (black) (for the Mens Dept.)
Shirt: 22769 ~ casual couture – Asymmetric Shirt Black/White (for the Mens Dept.)
Pants: Razorblade Jacket – Cargo Faders (for the Mens Dept.)

mancave 2

I decided to decorate my mancave with stuff from the Mens Dept, the Arcade and some bits and pieces i bought the last couple of days. The wonderful modern and quirky Pedal Lamp comes from [bauwerk] and also the Corduroy Armchair UK is from [bauwerk]. The chair is available in the Mens Dept. The case is from [HANDverk] and it is the Oz Relic display case from the Arcade. The dresser with the telly comes from [kusshon] and the animalia paper prints are from vespertine – both items are also available in the new round of the Mens Dept.

The couchtable and also the vase, the candles and the rug come from Designer Prims. The hockey wall art was the hunt gift for the 4 Walls Hunt from Cheeky Pea. The floorlamp is from BRENO who recently moved their store – so update your landmarks! The TinTin rocket statue comes from [bauwerk] and the swan chair again is from [HANDverk] and is their share for the current Mens Dept. The magazine holder is also to be found in the Mens Dept. and it comes from MudHoney.

On my working desk – which is the rare item from DIGS for the Arcade you can see the beer and chips tray from [kusshon] and the wonderful Oz Relic “the Wizard’s balloon” from [HANDverk] also for the Arcade. The ground statue is from DownDownDown and can be found in the current Gallery Gift Shop – and also the wall art “nude” by Piedra Lubitsch. The Alien Head comes from [bauwerk] and I so love the name of it: “went deer hunting and came back with that”.

In my bedroom I decided to use the wonderful quirky bed from L&K Prefabs. The bed “morning wood” (yes, you have read right) is the item from L&K Prefabs for above mentioned The Challenge and it is awesome. I really love the idea with the tree and the nightlight. The clothes rack comes from *bbqq* who also joined the Mens Dept for the first time with this item. The wall art again comes from the Gallery Gift Shop and is by Chiana Oh “To Another World”.

The Challenger

The Challenger 1

Happy weekend. There is a new fun event within secondlife called “The Challenge”. So what is this all about? It is a group of Home and Garden builder who decided that it would be nice to become challenged by random themes each month to craft at least one item according to the theme. And of course the themes are not necessarily that obvious. So for the first round the creators got “Tudor Style” and they did a brilliant job with their items.

First of all: Tudor is not a really common building style within SL – so it is nice that people decided to bring it inworld. And second – even if the creators worked around the theme you still can tell that it is an item from their store. Like i.e. this Tudor Bench from EoD. It is available in three different options/colors and it is massivly filled with single and couple animations. It is a wonderful piece of furniture that – as you can see – not only matches history themed rooms and homes.

The Challenger 2

Another wonderful item to be found within “The Challenge” is the Rhys Pergola from BRENO. And again – this is indeed Tudor style but also fits nearly every kind of sim you can imagine. Also it comes with and without curtains. So if you need something for your virtual garden or park – you definitely should check back with BRENO. Michigans Shack even crafted a complete Tudor house you can see in the background. And yes – it is big, but wonderful. The Tudor Mansion has 6 rooms on the first floor and 5 rooms on the second floor and makes a fantastic home for SL familys.

The thing that thrills me about “The Challenge” is the variety of items and also – like said above – that they are according to the theme but that they are also brilliant stand alone items that have not just become built for the one purpose, but are an addition to the offers of the stores. And last but not least: most of “The Challenge” items are having a discount in the first week of release – and if i calculated right this will be until 6. March 2013. So better hurry up!

Basalt

Basalt 1

I am way late to show you some goodies from the Mens Dept and other locations. When it rains it pours – so people say: after the problems with my internet I faced some RL personal trouble that kept me away from blogging for far too long. But well – I am back (again) and here we go:

The Mens Dept February Round has some gems for you to get for a bargain. And as always you find at the venue a mix from clothing to furniture. Spotlight on the Shell Chair from [HANDverk]. Like everything from [HANDverk] the chair is a modern classic piece you just do not want to miss. It is breathing a certain 60ies/70ies style and the simplicity of the chair is marvellous. The chair comes with 7 animations and is available in black and in red. The shirt I am wearing is one of the items from 22769 ~ casual couture. The doubletee Pi is a layered shirt – or in other words: a tee over a longsleeve. It looks kinda indie/skater to me and is definitely a keeper. There are two other shirts to find at the venue also. And also the necklace comes from the current Mens Dept. It is from KOSH and it is called Pivot Necklace. The necklace comes in 3 different styles and there are also matching rings.

Dura released a new hair two days ago. Boy*41 is a more modern cut with shaved neck – so you need a hairbase for this one. The skin I am wearing is from the Body Co. Sale at The Warehouse.

And finally – the skybox: The prefab is one of the new releases from GARDEN OF DREAMS. The “Showcase Set” contains – amongst 3 other scenes – this one called Basalt. I absolutely love the minimalism in this one. And in my opinion it works also brilliant as a small shop. The set is full mesh and has a Landimpact of 12 – so it definitely is a fantastic shell for everything you can imagine.

My Four Walls

My Four Walls 1

And I am back again (kinda) – have you missed me? OK – I am seriously pissed. As I already told you I moved flats in RL and the phonecompany messed up my internet contract big time. In fact the issue is still waiting to become solved (I am still hoping). Anyways – a buddy of mine was so kind to let me use his computer for this blog post, but of course it feels different when you are not sitting on your own machine. Anyways – his computer is really good, better then mine. I might steal it from him 😉
Todays main actor is the fantastic Olisipo Skybox from L&K Prefabs. It is available at the Designers Warehouse right now and you can get it for half of the regular price. And it is so worth it. The texturing is amazing and it has many neat gadgets like opening doors and a fireplace and many really interesting angles to decorate. My pictures surely do the skyhome no justice since – because of above mentioned RL issues – I was not able to decorate all of the rooms without my buddy strangeling me. But here are the facts: You have two huge bedrooms, a kitchen and a bathroom – and you have a hallway you can see in above picture in the background.
Tha Wall Art behind me is from the new round of the Gallery Gift Shop and comes from #7. The cube chair I am lounging in is from [bauwerk] who finally opened their doors to the public. And if you are a furniture addict like I am I strongly recommend the Four Walls Hunt – because literally everything you can see in the background – the chair, the sideboard and the frames – are from the hunt which is by far one of my most fav hunts in the grid.

List of stuff:
Chair (foreground): 22769 ~ [bauwerk] Cube Chair White Leather
Wall Art: #7 – Cubed Wall Glass (for the Gallery Gift Shop)
Chair (background): L&K Prefabs – Good Old Armchair (Four Walls Hunt)
Sideboard: PILOT – Miller Dresser (Four Walls Hunt)
Frames: End Of Daze – Canvass (part of the Four Walls Hunt Gift)

My Four Walls 3

Just for clarification: I only use the telescope for watching the stars and NOT for watching my cute neighbour when he leaves the shower, ok? Anyways – the telescope is a brilliant prob from Hanaya called “Star Party” and it is the gift for the also currently running Cold Winter Nights Hunt. It comes of course with pose animations and is really very well done. The reading nook I am sitting in front of is from BRENO and like the modular shelf from Scarlet Creative it is again a gift for the Four Walls Hunt.
