leave a comment »

Time for our fortnightly fix of the Cosmopolitan Sale Room! Some of the menswear that the designers are spoiling us with this time :)

V-Spot  – The Beats Collection.  A fabulous set of hoodies and snapbacks in six musical themed designs. I mixed n matched in one of the photos and why not? At only L$159, you can afford a couple of these sets.  Usual standard 5 sizes XS to XL with a good alpha and range of colours. I was wearing the Eggplant colour in the first photo and Blue & Red in the second, both size L. The snapback is easy resize.

F.A.D. – The Outsider Leather Jacket and Hoodie. This is HUD-driven to give a choice of four leathers and four hoodie colours, all in good toning/contrasting textures. Perfect for what it says on the label – outside!  Standard 5 sizes, XS to XL, plus alpha textures included in case of fitting difficulties but I don’t think you’ll have any. Very smart casual.

Cosmopolitan Sale Room #22 Menswear

leave a comment »

Round #22 of the Cosmopolitan Sale Room is now on until 28th September.  Once again, the designers are spoiling us!

[ZENTRO] has the amazing Dreamcatcher tattoo, a line drawn artwork that covers the torso, arms and hands. Also included is an applier HUD for slink hands so no worries about the design being cut off if you wear those chappies. Pose is from {NanTra} Scheherazade – a 8 pose pack with mirror poses and it’s all about Arabian Nights. Although mostly a ladies pose pack, I’ve used this one anyway, tongue in cheek :) They make great poses!

GIOMEN  has the HUD-driven Baraqa Shirt, a very useful smart casual style shirt with a number of colorways. Standard 5 sizing from XS to XL and I found the L size was a perfect fit over mesh jeans.

F.A.D is a new designer at Cosmo and here’s the Men’s Guerrilla Leather Jacket. The pack is comprehensive with versions of the jacket in Materials and ordinaire. Standard 5 sizing from XS to XL, I wore M and L easily. Great alpha, too! Also included is an arm patch for all sizes and a notecard with instructions on how to create your own patch. If you’re conversant with a graphics program like PS, Paintshop or Gimp – it would be a lot of fun to make up your own design texture. Then you simply drag the texture to the patch. Brilliant addition!

A bit of Decadence at 22769 ~ [bauwerk]

with one comment

22769 ~ [bauwerk] very recently added an ornament to this collection called the ‘Brutus Lamp’ so I rezzed it and thought – wow!  Then delving into the depths of my inventory (a dangerous and laggy place) I found the rest of the ‘Decadence is Bliss’ collection. It’s brilliant and I’m sure you’ll think so too!

Here’s the ‘Concert Grand Piano’ which has open and closed versions, plus the ‘Concert Grand Stool’ which is filled with a number of suitable animations in true 22769 style (Concert Grand open – LI 13/11 Prims, Concert Grand closed – LI 9/7 Prims, Concert Grand Stool – Li 2/2 Prims. The skull book holders and Lily vase  are part of the separate ‘Console set’ (LI 2/1 Prim and LI 5/2 Prims).  By the side of the piano is the ‘Kraken Dinner Table’, again a separate part of this collection which comes with dining chair complete with 10 animations (Table – LI 4/2 Prims, Chair – LI 3/2 Prims).

Decadence grand piano and ornaments

 

This is the bureau from the Console set, beautiful  fleur-de-lys detailing on the drawers. The ‘Skull Black Chair’ (LI 10/3 Prims) seen from the front and if viewed from the back, its in the shape of a skull. The chair has 11 single sit animations which are very expressive.

Decadence bureau and ornaments

 

Here’s that fabulous chair again, accompanied by the ‘Kraken End Table’ in black. There’s also a silver version (both LI 7/2 Prims).

Decadence Kraken table and skull chair

A lot of items here. Firstly there’s the ‘Decadence Leather Sofa’ which has a PG version and an adult version (both LI 18/4 Prims).  15 single animations and 9 couple animations on the PG version, all those plus 9 male/female adult , 8 male/male Adult  and 9 female/female Adult animations on the adult version – so pretty decadent :)  Ornaments I haven’t mentioned before – a stunning violin in case and this is a daft 2LI/2 prims only for all that detail. And sitting patiently by the side of the sofa is the ‘Brutus Lamp’ which started off the whole photography session.

All furniture from the ‘Decadence is Bliss’ collection is copy/modify. Many thanks to Arrchie for modeling in as decadent a manner as possible given the PG rating of my blog :)

Cheers, m’dears :)

More V-Spot Goodness :)

leave a comment »

There’s a great group gift out at V-Spot mainstore! It’s this ‘Deadleaf’ Shirt, standard 5 sizing with excellent alpha. This will go with so many Fall/Autumn outfits, both casual and posh, that I’ll never be out of it :)

Deadleaf Shirt

And this is VerTig0’s latest design – the ‘Vintage N Cool’ Jacket combo. Colorways are black, brown, green and grey, all equally useful on top of jeans or trousers. Really impressed with this design. If you’re a V-Spot group member you can get this for only L$140 so well worth it! I’m wearing the L size but the M size also fits, I just like the vintage look worn a little loose.
