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.

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.

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.

A little bit of green in the month of March is always a good thing. Living where I do in the middle of a big city, nature is not always easy to find, but sometimes nature has a way of finding you, as shown by the two beasts keeping me company for this post.

The build here is a hunt gift from dirty.little.secret– it is fully furnished and includes lots of decor & an upper level not shown in the post. I also want to thank Draven Schapire of Bad Cat Alley, who lent me Oliver, his furry pride and joy. Check out his store if you are in the market for feline accompaniment.

The Back to Black Event has been underway for a week or so with many of the grid’s best designers showcasing new releases or specially created items. Organized by the team from Chic Management, Back to Black aims to raise awareness of various mental health issues that impact just about everyone at some point in their lives. The event has a number of major themes including courage, determination, serenity and hope.

CheerNo has three special outfits for the event that I think you will like.  While these aren’t freebies, please check the credits for the skins, shapes, hair & accessories – most of which are hunt or group gifts.

The location for these pics is the Art Screamer Exhibit by Claudia222 Jewell, which should not be missed (thanks to Miyoko Magic who did an awesome picture on this Sim and inspired me to check it out).
