Reposting this so you can see an actual blog of the Aeva GG skin by a real live blogger, rather than a cut & paste vendor advertisement…

Two looks for you today, including a nice sweater from American Bazaar that you can get from the Falling Into Autumn Hunt. It is actually the last call for that hunt since it ends tomorrow. Also shown again is Aeva‘s excellent skin gift, which I also used in my last post. Make sure you go check out the Aeva store to get that gift.

Now that I’ve left Summer behind, I thought I’d feature Aeva‘s Elijah skin gift again, but this time with some more seasonal looks. It’s tough finding good skin gifts for men, so don’t miss this one, particularly as it includes all skin tones. Also, if you like the skin, the official release version (i.e. without beard) is now out in the store.

The clothing includes a few more Mens Dept items from the September round ending today or tomorrow (never sure exactly…lol). I especially like the Nerd Project sweater and the Love Re Me shoes in this round, but there are lots of other interesting items. Also shown below are a nice hunt gift from American Bazaar, various free accessories and a newish release from HuHu.

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.

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.

Hints & Slurls for hunts mentioned in this post: Evil Bunny HuntHop Aboard the Tango TrainSpring Awakening Hunt

My last post on Four Walls concentrated on some of the rustic items, the grungy even. This time I wanted to feature the more modern gifts – those with clean lines and often modular in concept. Pieces such as Scarlet Creative‘s shelving units (the gift includes numerous versions that you can mix and match) or Breno‘s reading nook (part of a future modular series), work perfectly in Circa‘s “Infinity Cloud” Glass Studio from the hunt, which has cubed rooms off a main living space,  skylights with metallic highlights and panoramic glass windows (Mesh, 29 land impact). Four Walls goes to the end of the month and previews can be seen on the hunt website.

I’m wearing Diego, the new Mesh head from CheerNo, which is on sale at TDR Fusion until Feb 1. In a sense, with these mesh add-ons, be they heads, breasts, hands, feet or other appendages, the avi itself becomes modular, a base to which components can be added or subtracted at will depending on needs. CheerNo’s head is interesting and can give a very realistic effect, but the lack of facial expressions can be a drawback. Some new releases shown below include Mens Dept items, a great shirt from HuHu (available with texture change hud) and an outfit from Apple May Designs, which is marking the opening of its new mens store with everything 50% off just this weekend (the AMD hoodie shown below is available in a different color free in store). Update: was free just for the weekend.

For the decor fans there are amazing hunts on now and I’m sure some of you are already out doing them (Hello Lilith). The Four Walls hunt brings SL’s top designers offering up some excellent gifts that should fit well with your design schemes. Gifts cost 20l so you need to choose wisely. There are too many standouts to name them all, but some of my favorites shown below include a great dresser from Pilot, a cool lamp from Vespertine (one of three), Cheeky Pea‘s hockey items and a fun guitar prop/chair from Zinnias.

Two other furniture hunt options now underway are the Courtyard Hunt (Free) and Cold Winter Nights (10l) You can see previews of almost all the gifts on the various hunt websites.

The avi shown below is from Peau, a new skin store for men, and can be found for the super nice price of 55l at Fi* Friday (ends sometime Wednesday), which is  a great weekly source of edgy fashion.

This is another of my “it’s the end of the month and you’ve got a day to get some good stuff” posts. The October Mens Dept round ends tomorrow I believe, as do a bunch of October Hunts. Like every month there are some good deals to be had there so stop by if you can.

Meanwhile, I’ve got my private stock of candy and have barricaded myself in a deserted warehouse where no trick-or-treaters can get to me. Best wishes to all the ghouls and goblins out there.

Update Nov 1: Mens Dept collection now removed. Check back on the 5th for the November round.
