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.)

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”.

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 2

Cupcakes anyone? These are the ubercute gift from Sway for the Four Walls Hunt. The painting in my back is from the Gallery Gift Shop and it is called “Our Beach in November” by Gabrielle Swindlehurst who is a master in highly atmospheric pictures. The furniture – except the rug which was an advent gift from [CIRCA] – comes from [bauwerk] and is a new release. On the left you can see the inbuild fireplace of the Olisipo Skybox. And the ceiling lights are the opening groupgift from *bbqq*.

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 King of Oslo

King Of Oslo 1

Welcome in the New Year. Sorry for my absence of writing, but I just moved flats in RL and had all the fun like not working internet connections, packing and unpacking stuff and carry all of it in the fifth floor without elevator. Moving in SL is somewhat easier… But anyways: here I am trying to catch up on all the events and things happening in SL right now. So lets start with the crown I am wearing. It is a new release from a brand new store called “Aesthetica” and it is available in the current Gallery Gift Shop. Aesthetica is so new that they do not even own a mainstore right now within SL. So if you want to have the Fabric Crown you better hop over to the Gallery Gift Shop and get your copy while the current round is still rolling.

The Mens Dept. started last weekend in a complete new collection. And like always you can find brilliant stuff for lads there. The cozy hoodie I am wearing is from 22769 ~ casual couture. And you can choose from 6 different colors at the venue. And the fleece like texture indeed looks quite comfi to me. The pants are from !gO! The Morten Pants and Socks are very country in a stylish way. Also corduroy seems to be the new thing within SL. The pants are available in two different colors and there are also matching shirts and vests available at the Mens Dept.

Todays furniture also comes from the Mens Dept. The Oslo lounge and shelf set is the item from [kusshon] for the current round of the Mens Dept. And it is rich on details and great stuff. The lounge holds many animations. And the Laptop is also included. So this makes the set to a must have for every mancave. The Nippon desk and stool is also from [kusshon] and was the item from the December Mens Dept. But it is still available in the [kusshon] mainstore. Also here you get a lot of animations in the stool and many decorative pieces like coffee cups, pens, paper and a stack of japanese newspapers.

Welcome to my last pre-christmas post of the year. Tomorrow I will drive to my parents place for the holidays and the internet connection there is way too crappy to make good blogshots.

The Cottage is an Advent Calendar Gift from 22769 ~ casual couture and it is their gift for December, 23rd. The guys from 22769 have been so kind to give it to me beforehand and anyways – I guess it is time also to say thank you to Manu and Paco that they allow me to clutter their sim with my primmy fotosets.

We will see each other again “inbetween years” when I come back with hopefully even more stuff to show you. Til then: take care ❤

Mendoza

Mendoza 1

Life is unfair – especially secondlife: here am I trying to catch up on all the events happening right now within SL – and new ones are already starting. So this is definitely a mix and match post. Nevertheless – the merchants within SL make it easy these days to keep you entertained and also to find neat stuff for your avatar, home and garden. So let’s start again with the Around The World Fair and with another region: South America. Trompe Loeil, who are also sponsoring the event, made this adorable Mendoza bed and I especially love the textures on the cushions and the blanket. The textures also can become changed by mouseclick – you can choose between three Argentinian patterns and two neutral versions also – so the bed matches definitely every room. And like always – there is a mass of animations and animated poses included.

Yesterday The Great Outdoor Hunt by the Royal Living Magazine has started and I got myself the “Natures Way Mini Set” by DIGS containing the log store and the stool. There is even a lamp and also a rug in the huntgift that are not shown here. Finally again a furniture hunt and I can only encourage you to do this one because – as you can see on the Royal Living Magazine Website – the gifts are adorable. Each gift is 45 L$ and some of them are kind of hard hidden also. The only downer with this hunt is, that there seem to be no hints provided. So you need a good eye and a little bit of luck for this one.

For the art, and you know that I have a thing for SL art: again these are artworks you can find at The Gallery Gift Shop. Still one of my first stops when I decorate a space or a house because you can find so much adorable stuff there for not too much money.

Todays outfit comes straight from the Mens Dept. I already told you that <HVK> have some adorable cardigans in the Mens Dept. Finally it is time to show them. The Pilot Cardigan is available in black, grey, navy and, shown here, khaki. You definitely should check the demo first on this one because it comes only in two sizes. Nevertheless: the purchase also includes a shirt for the cardigan that is not shown here. The green skater pants are from 22769 ~ casual couture and is also one of the finds in the Mens Dept.
