It’s always hard to get back to blogging when I’ve been away for a while because I spend so much time catching up on all the events/sales that are underway, but My Attic‘s particularly great February round (ends Feb 28) with its Pop Music theme brought the necessary inspiration to do a little playlist. The collection has awesome stuff for women as well as the very cool “MPop” pose prop from W.Winx that is texture change, completely moddable and lots of fun for doing photos. It paired up well with the Arcade animated video game piece, which is new from End of Daze.

The male avi features an excellent new release skin from Essences – nice to see them concentrating on the male side of things again – available in numerous tones and with various facial hair options. Hair is by Mr  C: designed for “lovers” it was released for Valentines and can be worn by women. Clothing is from Mens Dept and I especially love the cool leather look from Razorblade Jacket with texture change highlights on sale for 150l until Mar 1.

The female stuff shown includes items from various sale rooms (all of which will end soon – the Fi* Friday shorts probably today – so don’t miss out), a nice free skin from MP and two hunt gifts with very different looks that will both fit all the beautiful, busty, Lushious/Tangolicious FT readers out there (i.e. includes appliers): paper.doll‘s dress from the I Love NY Hunt (14l, gifts shown here) and American Bazaar‘s top for HFYIS.

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.

I sort of feel that I’ve been stuck in my own secret garden in the last few weeks. Here are some odds and ends I wanted to blog all month and just didn’t have the time. Note the nice skin from Egoisme that you can get at Menstuff Lounge (50l joiner fee though). This month’s Mens Dept also ends Monday. Go check it out before the next collection rolls in.

Culture Shock started a few weeks back (sorry, computer problems kept me offline) and its a fantastic event for new releases in women’s fashion, furniture and poses. Every designer has at least one exclusive release with sales going at least in part to benefit Medecins Sans Frontieres. Some of the designers have put out gifts, primarily for women, but this is a charity event so bring some lindens and get yourself something nice. Lag hopefully should be manageable so if you haven’t been now might be a good time before it ends on May 26.

The furniture here are Mesh sets by Handverk and Hanaya. Handverk’s modernistic furniture and jewelery is directly inspired by Marcel Breur and the Bauhaus and the tea set is a gift from Handverk at the event. Poses used are mostly from Sparrowtree Studios Poses, which has released two great pose sets at Culture Shock.

Clothing in the 2nd and 3rd pics is from the Mens Dept’s new round going until June 1. Like last time, the collection is truly impressive, but one of the stand-outs is definitely the full mesh outfit from Pumpkin. At 99l it is a must buy for that artsy, hipster look. The avi used in all pics is a skin/shape combo of new CS releases from  Akeruka & Kmadd.

There are mostly new releases/sale items in this post, but there are also some gifts, freebies & hunt items (Ink, Jomo, Leco Vita, Bastard, Balaclava, etc). See credits below.
