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.

Autumn Posing

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.

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 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.

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.

Dirty Little Secret has an excellent gift in the Something Old, Something New Hunt: a fully furnished, multi-level build called Air. Like its name, the house is full of light and air, and features skylight ceilings, glass walls, exterior staircases, multiple patio areas with draped fabrics and a water surround with trees. The build is soft-linked and the furniture is available as separates, so you can keep what you want (or use it in other builds). I’ve added some pieces from End of Daze that work well in the space.

Tash Porthos of Dirty Little Secret is also celebrating the anniversary of her store with a ton of group gifts for men & women and the DLS group is free to join until the end of the month. Join the group for her latest Mesh gifts (and stay in it because Tash is always generous).

Some of the clothing here is from the November Mens Dept (ends Dec 1), including a new release blazer from American Bazaar available with different tee combinations. Finally, the skin/shape I’ve used here is a new group gift from Aeva/Heartsick.

Baffle is a great shop that is unfortunately closing in world and until November 11 everything is on sale for 55l (also on marketplace). You can find an eclectic mix of pose props, decor and other items there, but the builds are truly special (see my Secret Garden post for another Baffle build I recently blogged).

Each design is totally unique and range from a domed floating home in the middle of the ocean, to a winter igloo complete with Polar bear or a creepy cottage with graveyard and hidden slaughter chamber. After rezzing them on the demo platform, I couldn’t resist buying them all.

I’ve done some fashion shots below using Baffle’s Le Petit Reve skybox from the sale, which is a fun approximation of a slightly grungy Paris apartment with some great texturing.

Also the November Mens Dept round has started with some cool items (including great Mesh pants from Credo and gO this round). Don’t forget to check it out.

Update Nov 11: Baflle is now closed and the marketplace store is gone so I’ve removed the links.
