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!

Time

Time 1

Timing is crucial in SL if you want to be up to date. There are a lot of brilliant places where you can bring your wardrobe straight forward as long as you keep the opening and closing times. The Mens Dept. is one of these events where you can gather up to date fashion for a reasonable price. And you have 10 more days to visit the venue and check the goods. Like i.e. the bicolor mesh tee from [LV]SOLIDe or the Corduroy Bush Pants (also mesh) from [Sleepy Eddy].

Todays haircut comes from Redgrave and this maybe is a surprise because Redgrave are known for their clothing and most of all for their skin line. Indeed there is hair to be found: the last releases Tyler and Edward have an extra hair vendor. So far so good – the Edward Hair I am wearing today comes in a resize and plain version. It is mod – so you can alter the color a bit like I did for the pictures. The hair is well done – I only wish that Redgrave would offer some more color options then just one. But then again – Redgrave is mainly a skin and clothing store.

Time 2

Two more things to show you. First of all the Espandrilles from  Reila Skins.  It is the latest men release from the store and I am extremely impressed by the textures and the look. The Espandrilles come with a resizer and it was way easy to fit them to my feet. The ones I am wearing today are the navy ones – but there are so much more to find at the store. Easy and comfi – just as I like it.

The Liberation clock is the newest release from [ JP ]:dsg. and it is a nifty piece of accessory. First of all the overall look is flawless. I love the leather texture. The watch also has a lot of options like the changing of the clock-face and the leather bands which is – like the resizing – HUD driven. You can choose between 8 different looks for the clock-face (some of them displayed below). But there is more: you can even set the time to your timezone because it really is a clock. A fantastic fashionable gadget.

Time 3

Time to show you more awesomeness from the Mens Dept. And clearly the Mens Dept is in kind of an inbetween season. Not really autumn-ish but also the summer items disappeared. One of my favorite finds in the current round is the Basicborder Vest and Chanbray Shirt from [Sleepy Eddy]. You can find three color options at the venue, but each package contains also shirts in two colors. Seen above is the olive vest and white shirt.  The cropped slim pants are again from [LOVE RE ME].

Also in this round you can find furniture and decor pieces at the Mens Dept. and this makes the whole event somewhat interesting and special since you find something new in every cycle. [HANDverk] joined the first time the Mens Dept. and I instantly fell in love with the Director-X Chair. The chair comes with 8 animations and an easy to adjust menue.

Time for a Summer Vacation

summer_vacation_1

Boy I definitely need a vacation. Honestly this year is kind of tense and since the weather is getting better and better my will to sit on my desk to learn things suffers big time. Anyways – no vacation for me this year in RL. But that does not mean that I can not go on a lil trip in secondlife, right?

The Mens Department has a lot of summerish items in the new round. First of all these adorable Layered Tanktops from [Sleepy Eddy]. I must confess that mesh tank tops are kind of my newest pet peeve in SL, cause there seem to be just one template and somehow they look all the same to me. Not these, boys! I love the idea of the two tanks worn above each other. The mesh is incredible well done and has a lot of details. Definitely one of my fav finds in the current Mens Dept.

Another brilliant find are these mesh eyes from Insufferable Dastard. As you can see in above picture the detailing is incredible and just as real as it can become within secondlife. ID has become definitely my first place when it comes to new eyes and I strongly recommend to check them out at the Mens Dept.

I blogged the Postman Shorts from 22769 ~ casual couture already yesterday. Today I am wearing the blue ones. Postman Shorts seem to be a huge trend in RL fashion right now, cause when I look out of my window I see a lot of guys wearing them. The trend seemed to catch up in SL also.

Below you will see the different color options of the [Sleepy Eddy] tanks to make your desicion a bit easier. Because I know you want them!

The Wear Grey for a Day event is already running and Weather! Or not? offer this wonderful Jester Chair as special item in their booth at the fair. The chair comes in several poses and is way easy to adjust (even for rather tall avatars like me). Also in the package are versions with different bell colors and one without bells at all. All in all a very neat chair and for a good cause also.

The ears, skin and shirt are available at the Mens Dept. for very reasonable prices. The mesh baggy pants in the appealing houndstooth pattern are the brand new groupgift from | ALEIDA |. The good thing: You not only receive the mesh pants as gift but also a tee and a bag. So you become spoiled here big time.
