If you are looking for cute winter and christmas things in secondlife obviously now is the right time. Creators have again outdone themselfes this year to bring some really fine products for your avatar and for your homes to the grid. And there are many places where you can get that certain x-mas-feeling – even for a bargain. So since the month is a few days old your first stop definitely should be the Mens Dept. I got myself – again – new eyes there. This time from Poetic Colors who also offer a selection of winter colored eyes. Today I am wearing the icicle ones. The nordic jumper I am wearing is from bleak – it is available in different styles and as you can see in the pictures it looks way real.

Another brilliant find in the December Mens Dept. is the rather taxidermic Antler Christmas Tree from Cheeky Pea. It definitely is outstanding and lovely made and way special. Also the carton box deer head over the chimney is from the Mens Dept. and comes from [HANDverk] (available in two different styles). I have to say that I cheated a bit by adding the festive bow from the “12 Days of Christmas” Calendar from Trompe Loeil underneath it. And to sum the Mens Dept. up: todays house is also from the Mens Dept. and comes from Deco. The Port Richmond Skyloft has an unbeatable quality and gives you enough room for decorating and furnishing. And the denims are the item from [AB]

If you are looking for christmas or winter stuff the “Relay For Life Christmas Expo” is definitely worth a visit. Not only the fairground is lovely build but you also can find some wonderful stuff there also. I got myself the “Festive Chandelier” from Hanaya which is way cute. You can change the color of the ornaments by mouseclick – also it has three different light functions. The silverish wreath is again a gift from the “12 Days of Christmas” Calendar and so is the Noel Blocks at the chimney. Nearly everything else I used comes from the adorable Christmas Calendar from BoatHouse and I really have to say that the Fireplace Tools are my favorite kind of decorative pieces because it is lovely made and just gives the certain extra to the sl homes with fireplace (and we all know – there are a lot of them).

Not what you expected when you read the titel of this post, right? Anyways – just a quick one before I run to the uni again. The new Mens Dept. will open on the 4th and it is my pleasure to give you a preview of some of the items you can get there: like this turtleneck from [Sheep Door]. It will be available in three different colors and also in three different kind of striped patterns and I really like how the turtleneck goes over your chin and mouth. The eyes are mesh eyes from .ID. who have a series of Ice Eyes as offer in the Mens Dept. Shown here are the green ones. The eyes have a really lovely subtile texturing and I will be stuck with them for some time I guess.

And for the horns: the X-mas Aries Horns are the gift from the 22769 ~ casual couture Advent Calendar for December, 3rd. That means TODAY and today only. You can turn each candle on and off and it is just a funny and lovely accessory for everyone who loves kind of quirky stuff. So better hurry up to get this fantastic gift.

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.

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.

It is funny – in the current Mens Dept. you can find items from different designers that follow one vibe. This time it definitely is skating. But let us start at the beginning: I wanted to go with a complete different look and therefor I purchased the Pilot Cardigan from <HVK> – that is obviously not shown here because <HVK> have a special kind of “shoppingbag” for their items which is the skateboard with the pose you can see above. And I have had a good laugh when I saw this and I somewhat wanted to create a look around this one. And for the cardigan – I will feature the knit from <HVK> in a further post for sure, because it is fabulous.

The denims with the wrapped around shirt are from !gO! and I really love the look of them. Also the shirt moves of course with your walk and shows once again the creativity of designers with mesh. The bicolor v-neck comes from [LV]SOLIDe and comes in 4 different styles and of course, like the pants from !gO!, in mesh male standard sizing.

The super curly hair is from [IRUCO] and is their latest release. Definitely a must if you are not going for the usual haircut in secondlife. The fantastic necklace comes from KOSH. The “Adain Necklace” can be found in the Mens Dept. in five different styles (black, chopper, silver, gold and shown here: brass) and this time you also can find the matching rings at the Mens Dept. I especially love of course the flawless texturing and the brilliant crafting of the necklace which is with every KOSH item I saw. Also you get not only the male version but also the female version and both options are also included with the chest- and spine attachment points. My eyes are from Poetic Colors and have been an item in a previous cycle of the Mens Dept.
