Autumnal Stroll

So, it’s officially autumn in the Northern Hemisphere now, though it hasn’t felt like it here in Indiana – it’s been hotter over the past week than it has been for most of the summer! Oh well, thank god for air conditioning in my apartment, and locations like this in Second Life! This SIM is called Habitat Springs, and it’s easily one of my favorite places now. The windlight is great, there are so many photogenic and gorgeous little niches, even the sounds are fantastic! Seriously, go visit, and take the time to explore – it feels way bigger than it actually is.

Now, on to the look! First off, I want to say that I love the Andrea head from LeLutka. It’s so smooth and perfect, with none of the weirdness I’ve come across in the mouth area like I’ve encountered with other Bento heads. If there was one thing I had to pick to critique, it’s the eyes – they just don’t respond a ton to sliders, and that’s too bad. But, I can’t not recommend this head. The HUD is the best there is, in my humble opinion, the animations are extremely well done (AND they’re all included!), and it even comes with some really nice AO-type whole-head animations that work great with the Bento animations I have loaded into my Firestorm AO. Right now there aren’t a ton of appliers, but it’s LeLutka, so it won’t take long until we’ll have more options than we know what to do with. Right now I’m really liking the appliers available from Modulus. I’m happy to see “older” skins that I really enjoyed coming to a new head, and the Malik skin I’m wearing here seems particularity suited for this head. Clef de Peau and Tableau Vivant are a few others that already have some appliers out as well, so check them out!

Pretty much the entirety of the rest of this look is Belleza, the Shea outfit available at Men Only Monthly. It’s not the most creative outfit I’ve put together, I know, but it just works for what I had in mind, and looks damn nice, too. I’ve always been a dandy at heart, and Second Life lets me indulge that side of me. I threw on some rings available at the current round of Pocket Gacha from Meva, and I called it a day.

But enough rambling about SIMs and heads, the links and SLURLs are at the bottom of the post!

The Devil Wears White

Hey all! I know it’s been a minute, and I’m sorry about the gap between posts, but I’m back for now, or at least until I run out of things to blog about ;-D

Anyway, I picked up this awesome sweater by Deadwool at the Book of Daniel charity event – I recommend you check it out, because it’s for a great cause, and there are TONS of pretty amazing home, garden, and fashion items to shop for. You can read more about the event at this Flickr post. I decided to do an all-white themed post after buying this sweater, and I kinda got carried away. I shot at Chouchou, one of the coolest places in Second Life. Check it out!

That’s it for now. Credits and SLURLs 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!
