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.

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.

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.

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.

One of my favorite items from the Mens Dept June round (ending soon) is the John Holmes Skybox from [Deco], which makes a perfect set for relaxing, entertaining friends, watching John Holmes classics from the 70s… or for recording your own. Here are some scenes from inside the skybox.

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.
