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.

Happy Rezday To Me!

Happy Rezday To Me

Today marks the 11th anniversary of when I first joined Second Life!  I’ve had to switch avatars since then for a couple of different reasons, but I still celebrate May 2, 2004 as my rezday.  To celebrate, I decided to do the “First and Recent” blog challenge that Strawberry Singh posted a couple of months ago.  Now, since my blog is still relatively new, I decided to go all the way back to one of the earliest photos I can find of my avatar in SL.  The photo on the left is from my modeling portfolio, taken in late May 2004.  Back in those days, we didn’t have skins, prim hair, custom animations, WindLight skies or water, sculpties, or mesh to make us look better.  The change over the years has been pretty dramatic!  I tried to replicate the look as much as I could for the “recent” photo, using items that are much more modern.  The actual photo is a whole lot better than can fit in that little square, so make sure to click through to Flickr where I have a full resolution version of the new photo posted.

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.
