A Lazy Tuesday

A Lazy Tuesday

Uber opened yesterday, and I’ll be honest – the Indian theme isn’t my usual aesthetic, so I didn’t think I’d find much.  Much to my surprise, I walked away with quite a few things, and would have bought even more had my avatar been female because of all of the gorgeous dresses!  I still found some awesome things that ended up in my inventory, though.  For example, this shirt from Cold Ash, sandals from FLite, and hanging bed from junk. are all from the event.  I have this all set up on the back porch of a new home that I just bought a couple of weeks ago – Redgrave released it back in the fall, but I just changed to it.  I’m also wearing a bracelet that NOMAD released at Men Only Monthly that I featured a couple of days ago but that wasn’t really visible in the photo – this photo offers a much better angle of it.

In addition, this is my first post wearing a mesh head!  I’m still pretty undecided on it, but I was surprised how similar The Mesh Project‘s “Classic” head is to my normal face shape – I just wish it wasn’t so pouty.  Full credits are below.

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.

I’m on a constant lookout for summer clothing that’s rigged to fit The Mesh Project‘s male body, so I was excited to see these new sim trunks from [Pumpkin], available now at Men Only Monthly.  The hair and sunglasses that I’m wearing are also from that event, created by MINA and [Z O O M], respectively.  The necklace was created by .Eldritch. and is available at The Secret Affair.

Afternoon Stretch

Afternoon StretchIt always seems like by the time mid-afternoon comes around, I need to get up and stretch a little bit to help myself stay awake and active, so when I saw the yoga/tai chi mat from Roawenwood at The Home Show 2015, I was pretty happy.  I’ve never found a yoga mat in SL that I was really happy with, but this one is definitely up there with my favorites.  I decided to wear items from a couple of current male-focused events to to today’s stretching.  My hair is brand new from Tableau Vivant and the pants are from Apple May Designs, both at The Men’s Dept which just opened yesterday.  The sunglasses from Meva and necklace from [Pumpkin] are both from Men Only Monthly, which opened in late April, but I haven’t had a chance to blog either item yet.  Have a great rest of your Wednesday!

The Sole Survivor

The Sole Survivor

This week, Strawberry Singh’s blog meme was to take a photo in Second Life inspired by a television series.  I figured that everyone was going to be doing Game of Thrones, so I decided to do one from one of my non-fantasy favorite genres – reality TV.  Survivor has long been one of my favorite shows, and this photo depicts a Survivor contestant who has won an individual immunity challenge when he needed it most – he made it to the final 7, but was about to be voted out by agreement of two alliances of 3 people!  That means that rather than going home, he’s now the deciding vote between the two sides of the tribe.  No wonder he’s smiling!  In my mind, he plays the rest of the game perfectly, and ends up being voted as the Sole Survivor, the winner of the season.  Full outfit and scene credits are below.

The outfit features items from a few events, but I’d like to highlight the face paint.  It’s by HopScotch and will be available at Fantasy Faire when it’s open later this week.  Because Relay For Life vendors require 100% of sales go to RFL, the face paint won’t be in an RFL vendor, but the creator has said that a part of each sale will be put into an RFL kiosk.  It was what I needed to finish off this character, and it was released at a perfect time!
