Spice

This month’s Uber has some amazing goodies with its theme of “Spice” with most of them going towards a very Indian aesthetic.  I decided to combine a few of those (this photo features items from the event by N4RS, Zaara, Aria and junk.) with some pieces from Zaara’s gacha set from March’s round of The Arcade to create this cozy little corner.  Full credits are below!

Half of my sim is a beach area, so I’m always on the lookout for new beach accessories and clothing, and I got really excited when I saw the new Pool Floats from N4RS at this month’s round of The Men’s Dept!  I think it works perfectly just off the shore of this beach behind my home.  The board shorts that I’m wearing are from the same event, and are the Johnny Boardies from ::K::.  As an accent, one of the new summer colors of Lir’s Charm from Empyrean Forge is perfect, and comes from the new round of We ❤ Roleplay.  The perfectly-summery hair is new from Damselfly at Dark Style Fair.  I can definitely see myself wearing this style a lot this summer!

Remodeling Is Fun

Remodeling Is Fun

I’ve been thinking about re-doing my home in Second Life for a while, and thankfully I found a few things that were exactly what I needed to do it at Uber, which just opened yesterday.  First is the Chalkboard Bar by Trompe Loeil.  I bought the full pack that also includes the metal barstools in a variety of colors, and the neon bar signs.  To help me get some painting done, I also have the Makeover Ladder* from N4RS, which comes with the paint cans and drop cloth on the ground.  I’ve been spot testing those three colors of paint, and think I may go with the green to match the lighting on the Bar Fridge from [kunst] back there in the kitchen.  I also have a great piece of wall decor already in place that is available as a Relay For Life donation item at the Fantasy Faire – it’s the RFL Purple Neon Club Light* from De Baza.  On top of the bar fridge is another RFL donation item at the Fantasy Faire.  It’s called “A Faire Memory 2015″* and is from MacMoragh and Muse.

Atlas at the Gym

A couple of weeks ago, another male mesh body was released, this one more muscular than the popular Mesh Project body.  The Niramyth Aesthetic body has arrived!  There have been many other posts on other blogs detailing the body’s strengths and weaknesses – the lack of alpha cuts, the difficulty of making it worth with the default avatar head (I never got mine to look right with it, so I am wearing the included mesh head), and the lack of clothes that fit it currently compared to the excellently-sculpted chiseled physique.  Personally, I feel that The Mesh Project’s body is more “me,” but Niramyth’s body is very well-made, and I can see myself using it situationally.

To show off the body in the photo above, I’m wearing Casa Del Shai‘s mystery rare from TAG! Gacha, the spinning globe!  I think it works perfectly to turn the Niramyth body into an Atlas-like character.  Now, it is Fantasy Faire time still, so I incorporated a bit of that using the lamps and the building.  Both are from Fallen Gods, and are Relay For Life donation items.

The Niramyth body is currently lacking clothing, but one of the best things that has been made for it so far is this pair of workout shorts*, created by ..::ILLI::..!  They come with a HUD that lets you choose from 10 different colors, and then you’re also able to tint from there.  All of the decor from N4RS finished off the scene, creating a tranquil area for the Niramyth body to stay in shape.  Full credits are below!
