Last Man Standing

Hey! I’ve been intending to blog this for more than a week now, and the pics have been on my Flickr for a bit. Recently started a new job so it’s been a bit hectic. So it’s going to be a quick post – credits after the pics!

Aquababe

First off, I want to start off this post by explaining the title a bit…

The Aquababe hair color from Unorthodox is AMAZING and I haven’t taken it off since I discovered it last week. I’ve never been a huge fan of unnaturally colored hair, but this has definitely changed my thoughts. I’m wearing the Comeback hair, and I tinted my eyebrows and DossiEr mustache to match.

I also want to thank Ross Myhre of Kauna for continuing to make some of the best men’s wear on the grid, and this awesome leather coat is no exception. It’s currently available for free at the May round of Fameshed. Seriously. Go. Get one. NOW.

Not much else to say this time… credits at the bottom!

Wow, it’s been a minute!

The Men’s Department started it’s Third Anniversary round a few days ago, and boy is this a great round! The designers did a great job (as always) and there is a ton of stuff I want need to get for myself. Cold Ash has the Westbrook shirt and it’s an awesome deal, including three standard sizes and two fitmesh sizes AND a free, special edition of the Ocelot jeans. And of course you get the HUD included with a lot of Cold Ash’s stuff so you can change the texture to one of the eight included!

 

The SIM I’m visiting in this post is the Immersiva art SIM by Bryn Oh. This place changes pretty regularly so I recommend to ASAP and experience it yourself!

     These uber-cool Gunshot sunglasses from Redgrave are also available at TMD. The lenses and the frames are color-changeable via menu, as well as resizable. Another item I had to pick up from TMD is the amazing Spencer skin from Birth. In three tones, no less. Birth has been one of my favorite skin stores since 2011, but the latest slinlines have just been phenomenal. This skin is not to be missed, especially for the special price you can get it for at the event. I picked up three tones and I’m not sorry one bit!

And that’s it for this post… credits and SLURLs at the bottom!

Purple Crayons

Hello, happy Sunday people! About the title of this post – I’m seriously just running out of names and Purple Crayons is the name of the awesome SIM I’m at this time. This SIM actually closes March 5th, so check it out. It has a small, grungy urban area, forests, a lighthouse, beaches… lots to see and plenty of opportunities for great pictures.

Now, about my look…

This is just something random I put together. The only new item are these shoes from Gabriel, which are some of my new favorites. They are available in several colors at the current Men Only Monthly event. So is my awesome tattoo from Inhale. This round is full of amazing stuff, so check it out. Go!

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!

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!

Hey guys! Isn’t this round of The Men’s Department AMAZING? Seriously, this is one of my favorite rounds! The clothes, the skins, the hair – everything is just great.

I’ve blogged the Chad skin from Clef de Peau before, though I was wearing it on the Mesh Project head and body. This time it’s on my good ‘ol fashioned “classic” avatar. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Clef de Peau has some of the best male skins in SL. Amazing detail on the faces, and the body is fantastic. And for TMD prices? It’s a total steal. This skin should be sold for four times this much. AND it comes with Slink appliers, to boot. Win!

I’ve bought several pieces from Ison before, I’ve just not blogged any. But I love this sweater/jacket combo currently available at TMD. It comes in several colors, with the option to change the sweater color via HUD. It has a certain casual elegance to it that I think works great for this look. These chinos from Villena are sleekly tailored and I love the classy plaid options that are offered. I often stick to close to solid colors, in SL and RL, so these are a nice change for me. And my much-loved, much-worn wingtip boots from Gabriel finish off this sturdy, chic ensemble.

Oh, and a word about this location – The City of Harrison. This is one of the most realistic city-themes SIMs I’ve come across in SL. It feels much bigger than it is, and features loads of great little details. Definitely a fun place to explore. It is a roleplay SIM, but you can just wear a visitor tag if you want to explore. It’s also in the Destination Guide, so expect at least a few new residents. Everyone was well behaved while I was there, though I did almost get run over by a car!

Well, that’s all for now folks… details at the bottom!
