Around The World has some fantastic surprises to offer – and it is my pleasure to show you some items today you maybe would not expect at a “usual fashion fair”. But then again – Around The World is so much more then that. The idea behind the event is to bring all cultures of the world together in one event and let designers become inspired by a special region. And for me inspiration is the key point of everything in second life.
REMY are in the african section and the offerings in their tent are awesome. There is one thing that immediately catched my eye tho: the Beast Hood. The hood – or cape if you like that better – is unisex and comes in 3 different sizes and also with or without fur cast. It is a rigged mesh piece and it is just beautiful done. You can find 7 styles at the booth in Africa.
Fallen Gods are also part of the Around The World fair and Mondra already blogged some furniture from their subbrand ~Libertine~ here. But Fallen Gods would not be what they are if they would not also offer some astonishing skin work at the fair also. Creator Alia Baroque released a complete new skin line exclusive for the event. And since the Fallen Gods booth is located in the Middle East the inspiration is the sun (aureum), marble and sand. And it is hard to pick a favorite one because every skin has something that immediately catches my attention. I must say that I love the “dune riffles” on the sand skin a lot. The Aureum Skin (left) has spakles and sunflare like textures – and the marble one speaks for itself. In other words: the skins are epic and perfect for an unique look and definitely for roleplay.
List of stuff:
Eyes: Poetic Colors – Classic Gen 4 – Sea Weed
Captain on deck! No doubt – CINEMA provides you with casual clothing and accessories, but you can find – in the right combination – fantastic items for roleplay also. Todays outfit comes from 22769 ~ casual couture and features the Diktator Jacket and the Diktator Pants. In my opinion both work also as uniform for an air corsair. The jacket and the pants are mesh in male standard sizing and the guys from 22769 pushed the meshes another step forward because the detailing is insane. I especially love the cut of the jacket. It is kind of quirky with the leather ribbons over the chest – and the collar is to die for. Also the sleeves feature buttons and make this unusual jacket a pure gem in your inventory. Same goes for the trousers and the belt.
Of course an air pirate is nothing without his ship. Garden Of Dreams are mainly known for their Dreamscenes. But you also can find wonderful gadgets there like this brilliant Airship. It is very steampunk and like all items from GOD wonderful crafted. I must admit – I cheated a bit on my pictures, because the ship itself is phantom since the purpose of this item is indeed to fly around with. All in all it is an impressive vehicle with rotating propellers and steam coming out of the injectors.
Todays skin is the new release from Reila Skins: Alex. Alex comes in different facial hair options (like shown above), with a shape, eyes, browshaper and also with teeth tattoo (not shown here). You can learn all about the new release on the Reila Skins Webpage. What I do love about this skin is the subtile body hair and the way it is giving my avatar a somewhat rougher look. A definitely more manly skin.
List of stuff:
Hair: *SH* Kai Hair(black)
Skin: Reila Skins – Alex Tan
Necklace: :sey – Freebie Department edokin necklace
Underwear: VITAMEN – Roku-Shaku Fundoshi_Takara – Shu-Iro
Vehicle: Garden of Dreams – The Airship
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.
List of stuff:
Skin: KENTO – Preston T2
Underwear: VITAMEN – Monthly Freebie
Chair: Trompe Loeil – Club Chair White (on sale til 28. October)
