Gravity Loss

Sometimes a sentence, an image, a video, a feeling inspires you, sometimes bloggers get stuck, not always for lack of ideas or inspirations, sometimes you´re just stuck and need a good kicking to get the engine going, well if you´re stuck you can turn to the [SL] Blogger Support group, i know i do quite  a few times, for tutorials, for locations, for a nudge or a helping hand, but now you can reach out for inspiration also with the new Inspire me weekly cues to help you out, with concepts.

I didn´t need the group help for these tho although it would certainly fit the Second Life and music category, since these where actually inspired by a video of Woodkid´s Iron, some people might remember the song from the Official Assassin´s Creed Revelations trailer, and it´s such a powerful video and music i´m sure it will inspire a lot more pictures.

I really enjoy these sort of composites, i sometimes moan and groan about how hard they are since it involves a lot of patience and SL collaborating with me and not crashing me half way thru it, but i was lucky yesterday and managed these, I´m not sure if the best way to show a house is to catapult yourself thru it, but this skybox is from Abyss and it will be available at The Men´s Department today, and seems a bit of a study of one of my favourite poses store, Adorkable including the amazing Falling set at this months My Attic.

So here it is sadly i can´t link the whole sequence in one panel, but hopefully the feeling and idea make sense, just remember you can always see the higher resolutions versions of these on my Flickr, and try not to loose your footing folks cause it´s only monday.

ETA: For those who missed it i blogged yesterday also over at The Hottie Cooterati Experience, in a bit more casual look and i got by With a little help from my friends

Under my Skin – Men´s edition

Standard

Some time ago i did a blog post called Under my Skin about the last of Nomine´s last non fantasy skins the female version, today i bring you the male version.

Although an end is always sad news, when a creator decides to spend more time doing something they enjoy better, because it´s clear they will be more motivated and inspired, also the fantasy elements where always there, always present in her skins, and a great example of this is this version of The Nephilim, that like the female one includes not only a bunch of regular options, be it facial hair or makeups, but also come with a way wider variety in makeups for men with a touch of fantasy/sci-fi. How many men can have such glamorous makeup?

I really enjoyed how the skin fitted well my shape and i i´m totally in love with the ligther skin tones and the crazier makeups, you can totally see i do enjoy fantasy items a lot and i really liked it trying out some male stuff for a change.

Also i it made me dug up again my male shape, that i modified quite a bit since then, and i also got him some hair and new eyes, which him and Ely can share, since i like boy haircuts also.

In the meanwhile we wait for more fantasy skins soon from Nomine, and some mesh, that i will bring you all soon. Don´t forget to try the demos to see how it fits you and by the way this months Men´s Department is well worth visiting.

Also if you like to see me in short haircuts i did a blog with one of my favourites for the ZombiePopcorn brand the other day, you can find here.

Since last month has been all about Hair Fair, this month is gonna be all about Vintage, because Vintage Fair is about to start and from the Aug 4th – Aug 29th, CHIC Management brings it on and i get to enjoy one of my favourite SL events, so expect some previews as soon as possible.

The Hottie Cooterati Experience  still has Zodiac going on strong, this edition themed by Leo last until the 23rd of August, then leading to it´s second round themed after Virgo.

The Ego Co. organizers of the Mesh Around Hunt, Fluid have a new hunt coming up starting in Setember, which i will be blogging as usual.

Another even that is having is premier is l’accessoires, from August 15th until September 8th we will see a lot about accessories in general, including,  shoes, i´m really looking forward to it.

Also as usual i will bring you the usual regular events be them monthly, bi-weekly or weekly, so stay tunned for this super special anniversary edition of COLLABOR88, and the usual during Fifty Linden Friday, FaMESHedThe Dressing Room, The Dressing Room Blue, The Men’s Department and The Gallery Gift Shop.

Bench me

Standard

More events and a mix of old and new, some old, like these lovely Bliensen + MaiTai Art deco looking earings i´ve had for ages in my inventory waiting to be blogged or this Bilo top, or this Maxi Gossamer necklace from a previous edition from FaMESHed.

Also from FaMESHed, but from their latest edition tho are the Leverocci blazer and the Alice Project hair, another event for today´s post is the bench from Y’s HOUSE, part of this week´s Fifty Linden Friday, as you know FLF is one of my favourite events, it´s not just the price, or the stores involved, it´s mostly the high quality you will usually find, the variety of items, nd the fact you have something to wait for every friday when you get home to do, very few events are awaited with such anticipation, at least for me.

Now the bench, i had never heard of Y’s HOUSE, i he no idea why, i find the mesh work amazing, the colours so very well picked, the texturing flawlessly done, with incredible detailed, but i was surprised there wasn´t a way to adjust the poses, the animations are pretty much spot on for the object and even if they are supposedly 3 for women and 3 for men i found them to be all pretty well done and mostly unisex, which for is always a plus.

But i had the same issue when blogging a gorgeous chair from The Men’s Department last month (btw The Men’s Department is also open again and seems this month is filled with some awesome goodies, i´ll hopefully will check out later in the week), no form of adjusting my avatar size on the object, these days i think most of us are spoiled with simple easy to use menu driven furniture, as a customer i beg and ask all furniture creators, please invest in one of these, we thank you for that, we come in all sizes and shapes, the more people your item fits, the more will buy it.

That´s all for now, have all a great sunday and happy shopping.

It´s a men´s world

Standard

Well not really no, SL is still very much a women world when it comes to fashion, but a few events are slowly changing that, one of my favorites is The Men’s Department, for years and years Sl´s fashion Industry and events have gravitated around women, well we shop more that´s for sure, we are probably a tad more picky on what we wear, maybe there are more female av´s in SL.

I don´t really care I´m happy to see more clothes, furniture and poses for men, for years male bloggers had no poses for them or had very little to choose from, for years men´s clothes where more expensive, without discounted events for them, now they can have a pick at cheap skins, furniture and clothes, and even better we can gift it to them, one of the things i like more about this event is that the gift option is available, so ladies show the me in your life some love with a gift.

So The Men´s Department is where i got the chair, which is quite lovely, i was just a little disappointed i couldn´t find how to adjust my avatar position on the chair, and since it is made for men my avatar floated a bit on it, I did quite like the poses tho, they where funny and different, and mostly unisex.

On other news Glam Affair is now doing mesh clothes, and they look amazing, a good example are these beautiful pants available at FaMESHed , and you ca also find a dress by Glam Affair at this month´s edition of COLLABOR88 .

Another shop i found out at CHIC² was SIGMA Jewels, where i bought the cute golden bangles, also from the event is the top i´m wearing, it´s not a top by itself but the bottom part of a dress by Miamai (i´ll probably blog the whole dress later but i liked the way the top of it fitted with the pants).
