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.

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.

Since it’s hard to let go of that California style, here are a few more shots in and around L&K Prefab‘s Blue Bungalow from the April edition of the Challenge that I blogged a few weeks back. Sun, surf, wine and outdoor showers seem mighty appealing after an endless Winter and now cold, dreary Spring in my neck of the woods.

Clothing in the post is from two current hunts: Men Only Hunt 3 and the You’ve Been Tangoed Hunt. For the guys, Men Only Hunt is not to be missed. Missqwerty and the Flair for Events team have brought a great selection of designers to the third edition of MOH and I’ll have more from that hunt in a later post. For the women, You’ve Been Tangoed has over 40 stores with gifts for 1l all with Tango appliers. Hints and the store line-ups for both hunts can be found on the websites.

The hair in the first two pics is a new subscriber gifty free from Miss C. Slap the subscriber in-store to receive a complete fatpack of the Nana style and if you join the group you can get new fatpack gifts for both men & women (joiner fee of 30l for the group). The female skin is a recent release from Aeva (shape by Anna Shapes), but there is also a new group gift skin available in-store (group free to join) and a special event underway with discounted items to raise money so Aeva’s owner, Amesha Jewell, can keep creating. Amesha has always been generous with her creations so please check her blog for more info and stop by the fundraiser event through May 14.

Kusshon‘s It’s a Man’s World Screen, available at Mens Dept through today (after in store), makes a nice vintage decor item and was fun to use as a backdrop for some retro style photos. My friend Sidney Bluestar of Sup Poses got inspired and made some pin-up type poses to go with the screen, now available for sale in her store with a prop of her design.

Lots of events ending today or this weekend (Tekila pointed out some below) such as Mens Dept, The Arcade, Skin Fair, Whore Couture and various hunts. For the women, note the excellent shape from PixyStix, which is a hunt gift available through today.  Also go visit new hair store Due, where you will find a fatpack of the mesh “Lily” hair completely free.
