When you work on a boat you need to dress right cause the weather can change fast…

Clothing and skin from the October Mens Dept (ends Oct 31) + a cool new release from Fashion Emergency and great grungy jeans used throughout the post from American Bazaar.

setting out 2bisAt 6:00am it had all the makings of a fine day, the kind you dream about in October. I figured I’d be extending my summer tan. Instead, a patch of dark clouds was gathering through the morning haze and we were heading right towards it…

The Wind RIses lighetr 2Half way to the pots, the wind picked up and the first drops began to fall. Rule No.1: keep your neck warm – so I grabbed my Gabriel sweater. The one that keeps my ears warm and the rain off my face. It never leaves the boat…

At the Marker shad 2By the 20 mile marker, it was a damn mini-squall. The sky darkened again, the rain rolling in like sheets and we went for the foul weather gear. Did I mention the wind, I guess I did…

rainI threw on my Deadwool slicker. Yeah it’s covered in grease from the engines; it’s not a fashion show out there. It keeps my hands free and the rain off my back, that’s what matters!

On Land ExpI was happy to be dockside again and back in my FE jacket. Squall or no squall we got our pots in cause that’s what we do…

As much as I like football and pumpkins and bobbing for apples, I’m not quite ready to give up Summer just yet. Thankfully it’s always Summer somewhere, especially in SL, and Flow‘s excellent boardshorts and retro swim suits from this month’s Mens Dept (ends Sep 30) provide a nice excuse to ignore the season and enjoy some SL rays. The boardshorts have a texture-change band and like the swim suits are available with liquid-mesh sizing in a range of colors and at an attractive price.

The avis feature skins by (Red)Sand (previously bogged here) and a recent gift from Aeva with shapes by Novus and Shape it Up. Hair is from Alli & Ali (including a current group gift), where numerous styles are on sale for 50l through the end of the month.

A few pics today featuring Never Totally Dead‘s cool “Old Shop” build from the Room 326 hunt, which is a fun little hunt with some excellent gifts (see the hunt website for details). Not sure what we sell in this shop – a mix of old and new I guess, antiques and fine leather items, but it all has a price and favored customers get to relax in the back room (which perhaps I’ll show in my next post).

The male fashion is from Mens Dept and other places including a shape gift from the current Menstuff Hunt. Astrid is modelling two dresses from 22769 found at the Gallery Gift Shop (where the current round and hunt may be ending today so stop by for some gifts) and BSD Design Studio‘s Post Modernism shoes from the Fashion United sale room. Her shape by Baholi was named for her and can be found all month at She & Him and her skin is a new release from Aeva on sale for a few more days at the Outlet.

Some lovely items today with a safari theme all modeled by Astrid. The one-piece Mesh tiger motif outfits are a Hair Fair gift from Mystic Tiger that includes various colors/detail options and separates. The beautiful dress and skirt/top are both from 22769 for this month’s Safari theme at The Boutique.  They are available in a range of colors and as usual from 22769 at very affordable prices during the event.

All shoes (and most bags) are by BSD Design Studio, including the latest group gifts (but note the joiner fee). BSD is sponsoring Shoe Fair and that is an event you don’t want to miss for the latest shoe releases (and the occasional gift sprinkled around).

The two stunning shapes here are by Baholi and you can get them through today at just 55l over at Fi* Friday. The skins include the latest gift from Hush Skins and a new release from Aeva, available this week for just 75l. The hair from Wasabi Pills (new releases) and Miamai (free) is from Hair Fair, but I doubt you need any reminders to visit that event…

Not really any freebies in this one, but I know some of you like seeing builds & decor so I thought I’d put this up here. The build is Bauwerk‘s litttle warehouse skybox, which is Mesh (land impact of 44 prims) and features high ceilings, exposed ventilation and monumental florescent style lighting that is fully and individually controllable via a central panel. Notably the intensity of each fixture can be set so you don’t overpower the space with light, as is often the case. The build also makes use of large skylights and full length windows to bring quite a lot of natural light into the box.

I’ve tried to decorate as a sort of combined work/home space for an architect or engineer. There are some metal pieces here but also quite a lot of modern style wood sets, particularly from End of Daze, that soften the space quite a bit.

Almost all the fashion shown (and the hair from Exile) is from this month’s Mens Dept round, which ends this weekend. If you haven’t been yet, go check it out for lots of nice deals for men (plus some unisex stuff and furniture) before the July rounds rolls in.

A deserted gas station, a couple on the run, bikes and guns…what could go wrong? Well I’ll leave that to your imagination for now, but I wanted to feature HISPose‘s new chopper pose prop so it was time to break out the leather. The prop includes the bike and seven poses and is quite reasonably priced.

Male fashion includes some cool accessories, tats and a nice T-Shirt combo from DROP found at the latest Mens Dept round (ends July 1). Also a new release skin from SAAL Body and excellent new jeans from +HuHu+ that you can pick up in a rather awesome texture change version.

Astrid’s clothing is from an ongoing Ricielli store hunt – lots of great items to be found there at 15l – plus some beautiful shoes from BSD Design Studio, available for a limited time at SL Fashion Week.

My recent posts had a few items from the Men Only Hunt 3, but here is a whole lot more featuring three dudes who just love to rock. There are lots of great gifts in this hunt – the theme is Rock n Roll – and hunters will find pretty much everything they need to create that rock look, whatever their preferred era. Great shapes (I’m showing three here, but there are many more), skins, clothing… I had mentioned that the hunt would be epic – well it truly is. Crank the tunes, stock up on the beverages and do the whole hunt – you’ll be glad you did.
