Good Hair Day

good_hairday_1

I often have a bad hair day in RL. Especially when I am in a rush my head looks like a detonated sofa cushion. In secondlife we have all these wonderful wigs that look just perfect – no matter how long you have been on a party or how often you turned around in your sleep. Well – most of the time. Cause this is where [iruco] jumps in. [iruco] just released two new hairstyles and if there is one thing I absolutely love about the hair it must be that it is not perfect. Do not get me wrong – it is perfect crafted, no doubt about that. But it is kind of messy with strains wandering in every possible and impossible direction. It just looks like you just got up and tried to tame it with your five finger comb. And for me the hair looks incredible realistic and therefor [iruco] gave me a good hair day in SL.

Mesh for lads still is a treasure quest on the grid. Not many designer offer reasonable mesh clothing for men which could be because there still is nothing like a reliable standard sizing for male avatars like there is for women. Nevertheless – there are a few items to be found. And ISPACHI just released these mesh longsleeve t-shirts in many different colors. They are plain without extravagant textures and just perfect for your casual look.

And finally the necklace comes from Frippery and is the ending huntgift from the Sanity Falls Hunt. It has neat details and is beautifully crafted. In general – if you are looking for some accessories Frippery is a good address for male jewellery that does not look loud and garish.

See No Evil

Friends of mine often complain that they do not know what to do in secondlife – that they are bored hopping from party to party, especially when no friends are online. Well, the solution is here and it is called the Sanity Falls Hunt. I will not get tired to advertise this one because the prices are incredibly good and the hunt itself is brilliant and nothing that you would expect from a hunt. It is an interactive adventure – nothing more, nothing less. And the 100L$ for the HUD you need for this hunt are possibly the best Lindendollars I have spent ever. So if you like PC games, if you like adventures and especially if you like hunts and gifts – this one is a MUST!

I completed the Sanity Falls Hunt yesterday and to my surprise you do not only receive gifts at every shop you have to look for the huntitem – you also receive 50 end prices from the participating merchants. And if you are lost somewhere, which can easily happen with the posters you have to find at Sanity Falls, the hunt group is extremely supportive.

Everything I am wearing, and also the prob I took the pictures in, are gifts from the hunt.

Dirty Ole Town

Dirty Ole Town

When it comes to clothing my credo is mixing and matching. I was never a big fan of one certain style – as you surely can tell. There are many clothing and accessories from the so called Fantasy, Vampire or Steampunk Genre that work pretty well with casual clothing – and the other way around. I started with the Risk Outfit from Phoenix Rising because I loved the vest and the rolled up sleeves shirt. Then I found the hat from Grim Bros in the Sanity Falls Hunt – and also the boots from Death Row Designs. And finally I sneaked in the current Running exhibition of The Gallery Gift Shop for the animated Time Leaper monocle from K_gs. All in all a steampunkish, adventurous kind of outfit.

I have to admit that I simply love the monocle. It is fully animated – the arms of the clock are rotating and it is just a nifty little accessory that gives you a little extra to your look. The name of the cowboy hat is “Make Me One With Everything Hat” and this describes it the best. Grim Bros went splendid with gaming cards, dollars, goggles, strange green glowing test tubes, scissors and many stuff more. And it is another hint that you honestly can expect high quality gifts from the fabulous Sanity Falls Hunt.

The Classics

The classics 1

Even if you are not interested in design or art or furniture – there are some certain pieces you will always remember when you see them. Take this lounge chair i.e.: looks somehow familiar? Seen it in a movie or a television series, maybe? Well – the design is from an american couple called Charles and Ray Eames – and they designed the Eames Lounge Chair sometime in 1956. The chair became instantly a furniture classic after its release – and now it is also available in second life.

I raved yesterday already about the marvellous New York Skybox from 2Xtreme. Nevertheless – a skybox is only a floating bunch of prims without furniture. So the designer behind 2Xtreme also made some chairs and beds and sofas. But not only some neat pieces made of sculpts, meshes and prims: He brings RL design classics in second life like with this Eames Lounger and the Corbusier set shown below. All furniture comes of course with animations and poses.

The classics 2

For my todays look I went again to the Gallery Gift Shop and got myself the striped turtleneck mesh jumper from 22769 ~ casual couture. The stripes are bold and the sweater gives me just that special comfi look and feel. The denims are from the Sanity Falls Hunt and the necklace is from the Fantasy Faire 2012 and proves that you can find wonderful craftings there for your casual look without wearing fairy wings or elfen ears.

Gentleman in New York

new york 1

It has been a while since I blogged some prefabs. Well, the time is now, cause I just found the most awesome skyhome of the grid. The 2Xtreme skybox New York is more or less a loft with a gallery. It is very urban and yet extremely chic and you have so much place for your furniture also. Included in the skybox is a teleporting system. First of all to get to the roof garden (not shown here) but also to get to the ground. The setup is fairly easy to do. Included in the skybos is a shower with over 30 animations (and yeah, there are also some adult ones). Also the skybox features two very comfi fireplaces.

The bedroom furniture (with the Marilyn poster) is also from 2Xtreme and can be purchased at the store. If you sense some kind of retro vibe you are totally right – it is called “satin fourties bedset white” and it comes with lamp, bed, rux, backdrop and the poster. The bed itself holds 16 multispeed animations and 11 cuddle animations (most of them are from Kabuki Creations) and it just looks fabulous.

Since the pictures do the Skybox no justice be prepared that I will show you some more of it in further posts.

The outfit I am wearing is the gift from Kastle Rock Couture for the Sanity Falls Hunt and it comes with shoes. If you have not done this hunt yet – do it now, cause it is a blast of fun. Please remember that you need a special HUD for this hunt. And from my point of view this have been the best invested 100 L$ in SL so far. The story of the hunt drags you in. It is brilliant.

And one last word to my hair: This is a freebie – believe it or not. It is from the 1920s Project Berlin Sim and was provided by Pocket Mirrors. Nevertheless: The sim is always worth a visit. But please be prepared to wear some theme matching clothing when you explore old Berlin!
