Night Vision

nightvision_1

Rob your piggy banks, guys: the new collection of the Mens Dept. openes today and it is all kind of awesome! The Mens Dept. is definitely the place to get state of the art menswear and most of it is mesh. These incredible realistic goggles are from Pixlights Factory. I especially love the metallic texture on these. This is no item that was made between lunchbreak and afternoon nap. It is absolutely georgeous and it works in so many ways. As neat accessory also like for roleplay.

The leatherjacket/tee combination is from Havok – and Havok is one of these stores who work with mesh for men for some time now and pushes the quality to new levels with every release they do. The texturing on the jacket and also on the tee is flawless. You can only wear the jacket with t-shirt, but that is no downer since the  combination is brilliant. and on the plus side – there are two different combinations you can choose from.

Poses are essential for a blogger and for everyone who enjoys SL fotography. To find reasonable ones – well this is a different story. HISpose is a shop that offers poses made by a blogger. Sixx Yangtz is blogging for years now and he definitely knows how a good pose has to look like to work for a picture. You can check out his and his partners blog here: RYXX

I used in these pictures the poses from the Model III set.

Prince Charming

Prince Charming 1

Don’t you ever, don’t you ever
Stop being dandy, showing me you’re handsome
Prince Charming, Prince Charming
Ridicule is nothing to be scared of

My sister played this song to me when I was about 6 years old – and she was a huge Adam Ant fan. And maybe it is silly, but I forgot about this tune til today when I put together my look. First there was the native skin from [A N A T O M Y] Body Shop with the blue stripe across the face. And when I put on the fantastic Military Jacket from Kauna the song jumped in my brain (and still is staying there, cause I am humming it while I write this entry). All I needed to finish the Adam and the Ants look was some striped pants and thankfully 22769 ~ casual couture gift these mesh capri trousers in the MOH2. And – drumroll please – they are in Standard Sizing! Yes you have heard right: finally mesh standard sizing for men is released! And hopefully this encourages even more designer to create mesh clothing for men. And last but not least: the chucks are also a gift from the MOH2. They belong to a complete outfit from :.Envious.: called Hypnosis.

Chilling

chilling1

Sunny days are here! And since I have had a rather rough weekend I decided to start the week easy. That means: chilling in my new beach house I got myself at the 5th Annual Home And Garden Expo. The prefab is from Designer Prims and what I like best about this house is the open architecture. The rooms float in each other and make a perfect hangout. The prefab comes with kitchen, pool and plants. There is also a furniture pack that I did not use in the pictures.

Bad thing – since I worked hard on the weekend I found absolutely nothing in my fridge except this old bone. Maybe I should sneak over to Mondras place to get myself some food. Nevertheless: welcome to my kitchen. The artwork in the background (and also the mouthy) are my recent finds from the Gallery Gift Shop. And again – if you are looking for artworks for your virtual home – the Gallery Gift Shop is the place to be. There is some stunning art to be found there.

Since I decided to have a slacker monday I refuse to take on any clothes but my retro briefs I got myself from the Mens Dept. It is from [Lazybum] and again it is extremely well textured with easy to adjust prim parts. The skin I am wearing is a preview for the upcoming Men Only Hunt. It comes from (red)sand and comes also with colorful tattoo layers and some trousers. A very reasonable gift if you ask me. And talking about gifts: also the rainbow shades are from the Men Only Hunt. They come from ShadZ. The lounge set is again from the 5th Annual Home And Garden Expo and comes from [Park Place]. The lounger have several animations (male and female) and they are copy – so you can rez as much of them as you want to.

There are uncountable fashion fairs in SL – and that is good of course. Even better: finally there is a fair for prefabs, furniture and plants! The 5th Annual Home And Garden Expo has just started this weekend and there is so much adorable stuff to show. Please be prepared that this entry will have a lot more pictures then my regular entries. But it is oh so worth it.

reBourne Prefabs introduce their new creation on the Home And Garden Fair. It is called “The Dome” and it is all kinds of awesome. Forget about square rooms and prims glued together in the usual way. This is for living! Face the facts – only a few people can afford luxory homes in real life – in SL outstanding prefabs are just a teleport away. And “The Dome” is lush luxory.

The above standing collage is giving you a glimps of what you can expect from this building. Splendid windowfronts with an appealing structure, tasteful textures and a modern appeal with a certain retro vibe. The Dome not only comes as “simple house” (and i see simple in connection with this building as an insultment) but with a surrounding like a pool, a bar, a fireplace, a kitchen and many stuff to explore more. If you tend to become bored with the homes you purchase way too easy – this one is definitely for you. It is impossible to become bored with this one. And if you are a style addict – welcome to your new home.

Above standing picture shows maybe best what I am talking about. It is like a snake shell for people. And – to get the connection to the headline of this post – you have a full front view from every single room in this building.  And now comes the best part: the house is 50% off for 24 hours. So if I (hopefully) convinced you better jump to the Home And Garden Expo to get you copy of this marvellous building.

Drama King

dramaking_1

I catched the flu and this is so typical for me. Spring is here, weather gets fine and I am lying in bed with fever and a running nose. Meh! I know that I am not the most patient sick person in the world. Some might call me even a drama king. Sooo – this cardigan from the Mens Dept. comes in handy, cause indeed it is called: Drama King.

The cardigan comes in several wearing options (sleeves up and down) and also with this grey v-neck shirt I am also wearing. It has neat details like the I-Phone and the pencil in the pocket and i especially love the leopard patterned pockets. The prim parts are way easy to adjust. Around my neck I am wearing the grey Tee*fy Soft Cotten Scarf grey. And the Poses are also from the Mens Dept and come from {.:exposeur:.}
