Shades of Romance

Hello people!

Who’s been to the Love is in the Air event? It’s an amazing event going on right now through February 14th, and it has a great balance of men’s and women’s items, as well as home & garden items. NOT something you want to miss, whether you get into the whole romance thing in SL or not…

For this post I visited Neva River again… this is one of my favorite places to take photos at, and the snowy look worked well with the colors of my outfit. I’m actually wearing at least part of three different items from the Love is in the Air event – my overcoat, suit, and this amazing skin from Clef de Peau, Tadao. Available in four tones, this skin comes with a new (I think) body, with a leaner, less muscled look that works great for my shape. Normal skins and TMP appliers are available.

This overcoat is actually part of a set from Gabriel. The full set is great, though the charcoal grey suit it comes with was not what I was looking for for this post. But the great burgundy red color and roomy size of this coat worked perfectly with the Dandy suit from Deadwool. I’m wearing the small size vest/shirt combo in white and the overcoat in xtra-small, and there is no issue at all with the fit of the two together. 

And I had to throw a pic in here of the suit without the overcoat. Same suit as the last post, just in more awesome colors. I’m not sure if these colors will ever be available again after the event is over, but I wasn’t going to risk it so I just bought them all. Completely worth it!

Well, that’s all for now folks… credits incoming!

Lost

Hey!

The title of this post reflects what my RL mood is more than the images do, I just ended up liking both this suit and this location and decided what the hell, I don’t care if they don’t “match”, I’m going to do a post with them both together…

Not going to get too deep into the writing today, just want to say some things about a few items. My skin from Clef de Peau, Declan, is currently available at the February Men’s Department. It’s been out for a bit in the mainstore, but the price at the event just cannot be beat. To make things even better, there are also TMP installers available with this face. It looks FANTASTIC on the Fierce face.

I’m actually wearing a new shape I worked on for myself. I’ve been so caught up with the ease of photographing with a mesh head, that I forgot about the uniqueness that can be achieved with the classic, “old”, Second Life head. Don’t get me wrong, I still love my mesh – you can bet your sweet ass that I’ll be wearing a mesh body whenever I’m close to being naked – but the faces just don’t scream “ME!”. Anyway, I was trying to go for more naturally proportioned, athletic shape. I think I did well, though I’m sure I’ll change it again in a month or two.

Now, a word about this suit…

It’s from Deadwool, with the Taupe and Green options available at The Men’s  Department. It comes with a vested option with the jacket as well, and you can wear the jacket with the shirt. If you regularly read my blog or follow my Flikr, you should know by this point that I LOVE to wear suits in SL. I have a TON in my inventory, but I am so, so impressed with this one… it’s just amazingly done and the quality is impeccable. The jacket/shirt/vest and the trousers are sold separately, and it mixes ‘n matches very well. There are a bunch of options via HUD for the shirt, tie, and pocket square. Two belt options are included as well. But what makes this suit so fantastic is the DETAILS. The ticket pocket, the pick stitching on the lapels, tailored modern fit, spread collar, French cuffs, all things I love in a suit in RL, and they are all here. Even the tie knot is perfect! Currently this suit is available in six colors, and I had to buy all of them. However, it does look like that there will be a patterned option or two available at the Fall in Love event starting tomorrow, February 7th. And I already have uploaded the lindens for it!

That’s enough from me for now… details and location info at the bottom of the post!

Well Suited

So, I’m a big fan of suits. I love dressing up and just generally looking my best, in both RL and SL. Hoorenbeek recently released a new line of Fitted suits. These are some of the most complete and well-made suits on the market. They are available in a plethora of colors and some patterns. You get two different vest options, two belt options, two tie options, two pocket square options, and two jacket options. I love the add-on HUDs offered for the shirts and ties, too. I have one of the striped shirt options applied, and I love the contrasting collar. A navy blue suit paired with chocolate brow accents is one of my favorite combos, especially with a touch of pink or even purple.

I’m also wearing the Mesh Project head and body in this post. Obviously the body is alpha’d out because of my clothing, but you can get an idea of the head. I love detail attainable from the heads, and the fact that they need almost no post processing after snapping a picture. Of course the biggest drawback is that everyone in SL that has the same head and skin installer as you will look pretty much exactly the same. It’s a beautiful thing, just not one I’d permanently trade my regular head for. The body, on the other hand, is much less of an issue and looks amazing. My ass has NEVER looked this good! Should be a post dedicated to TMP soon.

Anyway, you know the drill… style details and location at the bottom! Happy Monday!

Autumn!

It’s officially Fall! Well, technically, it doesn’t start until late tonight. But close enough!

Autumn is my favorite season by far. I love the smells, wether, colors, sounds, sights – everything! And it’s also perfect hoodie and sweatshirt weather. I love this hoodie from Etham, available at this month’s Fameshed event. It comes in tons of colors. I’m wearing the orange option, but the best part is that the top portion of it is controlled by a HUD. I might have to pick up the fatpack of this. It fits my shape perfectly, and makes me want to go on a quest to find one in RL!

The beautiful SIM is France Portnawak, and though it’s not quite Fall-themed, the colors work and it’s a gorgeous place to explore. Ziki Questi has some beautiful images of it on her Flickr stream, and that’s how I discovered this place. She’s a wonderful photagrapher and her stream is a great place to discover gorgeous new locations within Second Life!

Well, that’s it for now folks – happy Autumn Equinox! As usual, credits and SLURLS at the bottom!

Another brief post here – so sleepy right now, so I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking.

A word about these awesome epaulets from Gizza, however – I’m pretty sure that they are meant for female avatars. The chain, which is rigged mesh, sticks out pretty far from my chest, and the epaulets themselves took quite a bit of resizing and moving around to fit right. And of course posing with them on is a bit tricky, but I find it to be the case with most things like this. They still look awesome & pretty badass!
