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.

I wanted to feature some of the gifts from the Homestuff hunt before it ends on Sep 2 along with a nice build from Designer Prims I’ve had in inventory for a while. Tekila already blogged Circa‘s Homestuff gift below … here are a few more gifts from that hunt including items from domus, Johadez & Cleo Design. The complete hunt line-up is found here.

The Designer Prims build is all Mesh with a land impact of just 28 prims including the removable room divider bookcase. It features texture-change walls and floors and in this case full-length windows running the entire frontage with shutters that can be turned on or off by clicking a switch. There are two large living areas, an exterior deck and, as you might guess, the light is great. The house is designed for small lots but is still quite roomy and would also work fine as a skyloft.  Perhaps best of all, the house is available on marketplace for just 99l.

I couldn’t resist throwing a few fashion shots with Astrid into the mix. Clothing includes Liv-Glam, AB and Klubwerk among others. Note there are items here from the 24 Event and Mens Dept – both ending today I believe.

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.

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.

Hints & Slurls for hunts mentioned in this post: Men Only Hunt 3

Not a lot of freebies today (although there are some hints of the upcoming Men Only Hunt, which will be mega), but instead some new releases from Menswear Fashion Week, with a little Fantasy Faire thrown in for good measure. MWFW brings together a large number of designers focused on menswear with fashion shows and new releases for the event (ends Apr 27), many at discounted prices. The theme is Las Vegas this year, which means casual, stylish clothing with a rakish twist – like with SF Design‘s new Lounge Lizard jacket, which has a texture change hud with six cool motifs (sale price of just 100l for the duration of the event). I also quite like American Bazaar‘s open shirt/tee combination, available in various colors and with different tee options. It looks great with BeUp!’s new jeans and you’ll feel like money wearing it.

Las Vegas is all about fantasy and 22769/Bauwerk‘s Royal Room skybox from Fantasy Faire would fit right in there. It’s Mesh with marble texturing and has a master suite & main living area suitable for high rollers. You can check out 22769′s numerous fashion releases for Fantasy Faire through the 28th.

Hints & Slurls for hunts mentioned in this post: Men Only Hunt

I rarely have time to explore SL’s great Sim designs, but Forgotten City, with its monumental structures, strange machines and misty cobblestone streets, set amidst the ruins of an earlier metropolis, is one that will fire your imagination. You wouldn’t be surprised in a place like this if angels surveyed the streets, forgotten in time and place like the city they inhabit. Bring your camera when you go…

The wings & first three poses shown are a new release from HISPose, one of the best makers specialized in props/poses for men (or angels). The wings are color change and there are actually 6 poses in the set at the very reasonable price of just 100l. The A:S:S kilt & belt is an Avenue Magazine Readers gift found at Zenshi, and the pants are one of the gifts from (Red)Sand for the Hollywood event. If you haven’t been to Hollywood go there before it ends on the 14th – you will be opening “swagbags” from all the participants for days.
