The Return of the Space Cowboy

The Return of the Space Cowboy 1

Inter-planetary good vibe zone… Somehow I seem to find a pattern in my blog posts about the Fantasy Faire 2013 because I find a lot of stuff I would usually not expect from a fair like this. Like this – hm – space suit. Or intergalactic stormtrooper outfit. Well it definitely has something Star Wars-ish as you can tell. Might be the white plastic armory or the futuristic cut. Definitely a unique piece of clothing again.

The thing that puzzeled me first was indeed the unusual cut of the top – with one arm down and the other one up ending in a face shield like of thing. Interesting for sure and definitely a futuristic design. The subtile plastic texturing of the armory parts supports the overall look definitely. The fabric parts have a woolen texturing and are available at the booth of 22769 ~ casual couture in 4 bold colors: purple, red, blue and green. The pants and the jacket can be purchased seperately.

“Dark the other side is…”

Sometimes it is big fun talking to a designer. The new rotation of The Gallery Gift Shop starts today and like always 22769 ~ casual couture offer a neat mesh outfits for the lads (well – there is one for the ladies also, but I will not shave my legs for that one – I better leave it to Mondra). The theme of both outfits is “Floating Sunrise” and indeed the colors are kind of bright and lovely and the clothing – especially these fabulous silk flared pants – float around your avatar. And then I ran into Paco Pooley from 22769 and we had a lil chat. And he mentioned that somehow the outfits remind him of a Bollywood remake of Star Wars – and well: the seed was sown in my head.

I remembered that HISpose released a few days ago a brilliant geeky pose as groupgift – and the pose includes a light saber! And well – everything was set and here we go: surrender no more the – hum – bright lord of the sith Darth Farshore. I could rave for hours about the lucky coincidences, the brilliant making of the clothing and the pose and the wonderful enviroment – but fact is: the outfit from 22769 at the Gallery Gift Shop is all kinds of awesome (and also can be worn seperately) and the supergeek pose from HISpose is one thing every boy has to have in his inventory. Oh and talking about the pose: You see it in the last pic in front of the credits. Nothing beats a good smoke after slaugthering some persky jedi knights…

Living In The Past

Coincidences in secondlife never fail to amaze me. I think everyone knows by now that the Vintage Fair is up and running and vintage – or retro style – is the big hype on the grid. Nevertheless: the Mens Dept. is a sales event that is not dedicated to past lifestyles. But if you look close enough you find items there that simply fit in every kind of era. The old TV chair set from [kusshon] is one of these items. You can choose between 4 colors and the chair itself has 10 poses in typical TV lounging style. The couch table and a splendid amount of probs (beer cans, cheeseburger, slice of pizza, ashtray, cigarettes) is also included in the set. What I like most about the probs from [kusshon] is the fact that you can share these probs with your friends since they are mostly trans. So if you are looking for typical boy furniture – the Mens Dept. should be your first stop!

Floorplan have this chest of drawers at the Mens Dept. And here the fun starts: You can change the color of the drawers by mouseklick and I guess every designer would give you the options “yellows”, “blues and reds”…etc. Not floorplan – here you can choose between the colorstyles “chewie”, “artoo”, “threepio”, “darth” and “dagobah”. Shown above are left threepio and right artoo. The mesh tee is the item from DROP and I especially like that it is not overtextured so you can fit it to every kind of look you are going for. DROP have 6 different colors at the Mens Dept – so you definitely will find a suitable one for you. The cropped pants with the badges are also mesh and come from [LOVE RE ME] – and even if they are the item for the Mens Dept there is also the female version included. And finally the skin is – again – from NIVARO and is the special release for the current Mens Dept. round.

Finally I can close the circle by coming back to the Vintage Fair again. The skybox I took the pictures in is the exclusive release from %Percent. The 70s retro skybox has the dimensions 7.5 m to 20 m and 5.5 m height (approx.) and only 24 prims after set up. And it has these neat 70s styled patterns on the wall and also on the carpet. Also it has a lot of windows and a small balcony – so enough room for you to make your ideas real. Also the skybox comes copy and mod – that means that you can, with a little bit of building knowledge – alter the box to your needs like tearing down a wall and rez a second one beneath it to double its size. The skybox contains mesh parts.
