Steel Drum Solo

Steel Drum Solo

I was recently looking through all the things I’ve gotten in the past for my beach, and added these great steel drums.  These are a few years old, and the creator, Xavian Starsider, doesn’t appear to have a store anymore, but they play 27 steel drum songs and are a whole lot of fun.  I got them at the Fantasy Faire in 2012.  Even though they’re a bit old, they’re a fun addition to my beach for this summer.

I’m wearing a couple of items from Men Only Monthly, which opened a few days ago.  First, the Caseo necklace from AZOURY is an awesome necklace that fits a beachy attitude perfectly.  The Rebel bracelet from NOMAD isn’t really too visible in this photo, but it’s a great accent piece.

The Key To The Beyond

The Key To The Beyond

I really love the photo sets that Exposeur has been creating recently.  This one, The Keyhole, is available at the Dark Style Fair.  Rather than going in a dark direction with it, I decided to use it as a gate to something bright, perhaps on the other side of death.  I envision my avatar as some kind of angel who welcomes people to what is beyond.

The incredible jacket that I’m wearing is new from Gabriel at Kustom9.  It’s available in 4 different colors, each of which comes 3 versions – white t-shirt, black t-shirt, and no shirt.  My necklace is from Empyrean Forge at We ❤ Roleplay.  The amount of detail that they put into their creations is just unreal.  My sandals are the new Gustav sandals from ..::ILLI::..*.  Full credits are below!

Tribal Shaman

Tribal Shaman

Over the past few days, Alchemy has released a pair of incredible gachas that compliment each other extremely well.  At first, I was a bit disappointed in the first one at Fantasy Gacha Carnival until I realized that the bottoms for the outfit in it actually fit my avatar!  That machine also has the headdress and mantle that I am wearing in the photo above.  It’s worth noting that that machine has three different (rare) lion mounts with matching (common) companions available as well.  The second machine, at The Secret Affair which opened yesterday, features a series of panther mounts with matching companions.  The leopard mount is what I chose for this photo.  To complete the tribal look, I chose the Eldir body paint from Ghost’Ink, which is also at the current round of the Fantasy Gacha Carnival.  Full credits are below!

O Captain

O Captain

For “The End” (which opens tomorrow), FATEplay has released this awesome clothing set – I’m wearing the jacket, pants, belt, and boots from the Max “Alt” set*.  As usual, the quality is exceptional and the pieces fit together extremely well.  I had way too much fun styling the outfit, and ended up with what looks and feels to me like a steampunk airship pirate captain.  The outfit also includes a shirt, but for this look I chose to go with just the jacket.  There is also a full version of the boots that includes texture changing options out from FATEstep at the same event, so you can match the boots to whatever you’re wearing.  The styling of this outfit includes amazing hair from Exile that is at the current round of Collabor88 and an eye patch from Body Factory that is a gift from them at The 100 Block.  The pose is a new one that is at Pose Fair now from Poseology.

For the first time in a long time, mainstream press has been publishing positive/neutral stories about Second Life lately, focused around the Remnants of Earth RP sim.  I stopped by to take this photo.  It seems like a very vibrant RP sim that could be worth a visit if that’s what you’re looking for!

I hope you’re having a great week!  This post features more items from this year’s Menswear Fashion Week that is going on right NOW!  With about a sim and a half of stores, there is so much great stuff to browse, try on, and buy, including some Relay For Life donation items and other special deals.  Click on the photo above to see the full resolution version on Flickr!

The star of this outfit is the Adrien linen shirt and Armand linen pants from Zibska, both at MWFW.  The shirt is a special deal at the event – L$100 for the shirt and a HUD that can change the shirt and cuffs/collar to 8 different colors!  My necklace is a Relay For Life donation item by United Colors.  The ribbon pin on my shirt is a Relay For Life donation item at MWFW from SWaGGa and also comes with an HIV/AIDS awareness pin.  The last of the MWFW items I’m wearing is the sunglasses, which are new at the event from [ZOOM].  In addition to those items, I’m wearing the Motus Chronometer from VALE KOER and the Promise Ring in gold from The Forge.

If you haven’t yet, I’d definitely recommend stopping by Menswear Fashion week.  There are some great things there for guys by some incredible creators.

Long Walks on the Beach

A Long Walk on the Beach

Menswear Fashion Week opened today, and I knew I was in trouble when I saw that the theme was Bali.  Half of my land stays as a huge beach the whole year, so I knew that I would see so many things there that I just had to have.  This outfit shows you a few of them.

First, the Barong sarong by Fallen Gods Inc and Faida in the “exotic purple” color is a Relay For Life donation item, so I knew I had to have it immediately.  The recent partnership between Fallen Gods and Faida has been amazing to see.  Tag’s “No Diggity” leather sandals are also a Relay For Life donation item , and come in both an unrigged version and a version that is rigged for Slink feet.  The Leather Cross Bracelet from V-Spot is also a Relay For Life donation item, and I think it looks fantastic.  The Shirtless Tshirt from INVICTUS on my shoulder adds a nice accent to the beach feel of the outfit.  The Ellie necklace from Velvet Elvis is so incredibly detailed, especially for being made of sculpties.  Finally, the Baat arm and leg tribal tattoos from Ghost’Ink cap off the look perfect.

From outside of Menswear Fashion Week, I added the bracelet from Mandala’s Fearless set from the current round of Uber that opened a few days ago, [SteinWerk]’s Bonnie & Clyde sunglasses, and Exile’s new hairstyle “Give Away Your Secrets”.  Spring may have just started, but Menswear Fashion Week has me feeling like it’s already summer!  Click the image above to see the full-resolution version on Flickr.

Wine and Denim

Hi there!  After having this domain name for about 10 months and meaning to start up a blog time and time again, I’ve finally decided to take the plunge and do it after some prodding from a few friends.  If you’d like to read a little bit more about me, my time in SL, and where I’m coming from, please feel free to read through the “About Me” tab to learn more about my journey.

Today, I’m blogging a simple outfit that highlights a few things I really like right now.  The shirt is from Scars and is at Fashion For Life, which is open now, as a donation item to raise money for Relay For Life.  This year’s Fashion For Life was the first time I heard of Scars, but I’ll certainly be visiting their main store.  The jeans are from Lenox, and were at an event last November.  Finally, the boots are from FATEstep, which just recently launched.  The Anthony boots* were something that I had been looking for for a very long time, but hadn’t been able to find.  I suggested them to Damien Fate, the creator behind FATEstep, and was completely shocked to find out that he named them and the leather version (the Matthew boots) after me.
