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!

Ozark Daytrip

Hello faithful readers! Sorry about the wait for a new post; I’ve been dealing with some RL work and health issues and I’ve not been feeling like blogging, and money has been a bit tight so I’ve not had the money to purchase new things to blog. But enough of that, on with the post!

This month has been fantastic as far as events go – lots of really great stuff. Unfortunately I don’t have the time and/or money to blog all of it, so here are a few of my favorites. This shirt/vest combo from Ascend is great, something I’ve been looking for in SL for a while now – there just aren’t enough casual vest combos available. I’ve paired it here with some chinos from Cold Ash and boots from Deadwool for a casually stylish combo perfect for the last few days of summer. I’m absolutely in love with this hair from Deadwool, I’m thinking I’m going to have to buy all the other color packs now. And Marco of Clef de Peau has been on a roll lately, releasing some of my favorite skins for my Catwa Stanely head in the last month.

And this SIM is just amazing, isn’t it? The windlight setting was just perfect, I had to just tweak it a very little bit. This place perfectly captures that tiny bit of the year when summer is fading, but the explosion of autumn color hasn’t quite started. Really gorgeous place, visit if you can!

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!
