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.

A few pics today featuring Never Totally Dead‘s cool “Old Shop” build from the Room 326 hunt, which is a fun little hunt with some excellent gifts (see the hunt website for details). Not sure what we sell in this shop – a mix of old and new I guess, antiques and fine leather items, but it all has a price and favored customers get to relax in the back room (which perhaps I’ll show in my next post).

The male fashion is from Mens Dept and other places including a shape gift from the current Menstuff Hunt. Astrid is modelling two dresses from 22769 found at the Gallery Gift Shop (where the current round and hunt may be ending today so stop by for some gifts) and BSD Design Studio‘s Post Modernism shoes from the Fashion United sale room. Her shape by Baholi was named for her and can be found all month at She & Him and her skin is a new release from Aeva on sale for a few more days at the Outlet.

A deserted gas station, a couple on the run, bikes and guns…what could go wrong? Well I’ll leave that to your imagination for now, but I wanted to feature HISPose‘s new chopper pose prop so it was time to break out the leather. The prop includes the bike and seven poses and is quite reasonably priced.

Male fashion includes some cool accessories, tats and a nice T-Shirt combo from DROP found at the latest Mens Dept round (ends July 1). Also a new release skin from SAAL Body and excellent new jeans from +HuHu+ that you can pick up in a rather awesome texture change version.

Astrid’s clothing is from an ongoing Ricielli store hunt – lots of great items to be found there at 15l – plus some beautiful shoes from BSD Design Studio, available for a limited time at SL Fashion Week.

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.

Here are a few scenes inspired by the Cinema event that runs through Oct. 31. If you haven’t been you must go check it out. The event takes place in a cool build that replicates a giant Multiplex cinema with movie stills and clips playing in various themed areas (such as Sci Fi, Adult films, Action/Adventure, etc). It is really quite fun to walk around there and there is some great shopping  (and the occasional freebie/cheapie as well), featuring many of SL’s best creators.
