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…

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.

The Nest’s annual Easter Egg hunt started this weekend and there are some wonderful gifts to be had from select stores on SL’s leading home & decor shopping sim (more previews can be see here). The eggs are hidden throughout the sim, on rooftops and in attics, or scattered in the fields, but they are easily found and there are many of them – most of the participants have put out multiple gifts.

Some of my favorites include the incredibly cute “Eggie” set of mesh figurines from What Next, which range from the dapper Mister Egg to a Geek in goggle glasses or moody Little Miss Monday, who perfectly expresses the Monday-morning blues (there are actually 6 figures to be found – I’ll be going back for my missing egg). Cleo Design’s gifts include a butterfly-laden director’s chair and a colorful set of wall plates that I’ve long needed for my decor and Cheaky Pea’s Mr Whiskers tea set (teapot + cups in a range of colors) should keep you in Earl Grey for days on end.

I’ll have more on the avi I’m using here in a later post (and more decor as well), but for now, in the words of the immortal BB, That’s All Folks

I’ve wanted to feature Scarlet Creative’s Noelle Chalet for a while now. This lovely small house has an interesting mix of raw wood, exposed beams and glass with a modern twist and is available at a great price (50l unfurnished, 199l furnished). Beautifully furnished, the build was intended as a rustic mountain getaway and looks great surrounded by snow, but some of the design elements made me think it could also work well as a small hunting lodge, perhaps on the plains of Africa. I’ll show more of the build in a later post – if you are interested in seeing a demo though, follow the beacon from the landing point to the teleporter that takes you to Scarlet Creative’s discount area.

Some of the female clothes here are free gifts from the opening of the Zenshi Shopping district. Many of the stores there had gifts out, but they may not be available for much longer (in fact, the Faster Pussycat dress gift shown below seems to have been removed, but a different version was available for free at the time of publication). Also like every month there are some great items at Mens Dept – I particularly like gO‘s Morten pants and the unisex sweater from Sleepy Eddy – so don’t miss it (ends February 1).

Thanks as well to Ruby Vandyke of Rodeo Horse & Farm Animals for providing me with some mod versions of her rideables.

The latest Mens Dept round has been underway for a while and it features another nice skybox from [Deco] that is great for entertaining with plenty of room for a pool table recently released by End of Daze. And since billiards are best played à deux, some charming company was clearly in order. Of course, after breaking in the table, the evening progressed to other games…

Note that the female fashions are partly from the Golden Apple Hunt, which is a nice little hunt on the NYC sim through December 24 with 12 pretty amazing gifts at a small price of 12l each (see pics of all gifts on the hunt blog). Also both the Essences female skin from TDR Fusion and the shape from Anna Shapes at Designer Circle are in sales ending some time later today, but Essences has just released a new group gift skin and Anna Shapes has a similar shape gift in the Amarelo Manga Christmas hunt (go into each store and find the Santa hats).

I’ve focused more on the female side of things here, but I’ll have a bit more Mens Dept fashion and some general views of the build in a later post.

Here are a few scenes inspired by the Cinema event that runs through Oct. 31. If you haven’t been you must go check it out. The event takes place in a cool build that replicates a giant Multiplex cinema with movie stills and clips playing in various themed areas (such as Sci Fi, Adult films, Action/Adventure, etc). It is really quite fun to walk around there and there is some great shopping  (and the occasional freebie/cheapie as well), featuring many of SL’s best creators.

Autumn is on the way so I thought I’d do a small round-up of some early Fall fashions using two nice pose prop gifts from Bent and What Next that fit the theme. The clothing is a mix of hunt gifts, items from the latest Mens Dept round and a number of things from Fashion Emergency (a great store for cool fashions).

I’ve used a skin here from [Void], where a store-wide sale is underway through September (all male and female skins at 50l) and the Twisted Hunt shape from Vivid Avs, a relatively new store where you can find a bunch of hunt & group gifts, lucky chairs and generally low prices for shapes.
