EB Awareness Fundraising week

leave a comment »

There are a number of good people working for various charities in Second Life. I choose to support debra – its a charity that works for children with the most appalling and painful genetic skin condition epidermolysis bullosa – and this week from 25th Oct to 31st Oct there’s a fund raiser with exclusive and new designs plus evening programs of music and fun. Please do come along and support this cause :)

There’s no cure for EB but there is support and research into this distressing condition. Last fund raiser in Second Life raised as much money as the first life event – so it only goes to show that SL people are equally generous in their giving.

This slurl will land you in the greeting place with info about the social events and a TP board to all the stores. Don’t forget to visit the Gacha Garden, too!

Here’s GDit Jewelry’s exclusives (and if you click that landmark again it’s a direct route to GDit’s store) -

I’ve picked a few items from the Menswear and one which is unisex with a bit of resizing.

Sneakers by Shoeminati called HQ mesh footwear in a choice of  textures – cheetah, cherry, ghost, smoke checker, true black and true blue – loved these because they fitted so well with mesh trousers and are resizable in all varieties.

NS – Old Stereo – which you can hang around the neck or carry. There are varieties that play a tune with wearing – Pump Up, Rock Lobster – no tune varieties and they are all animated to an extent so that the speakers go round.  Also included is a HUD to change what the stereo looks like – brilliant!

Hello Tuesday – 14th October

leave a comment »

Time for another ‘Hello Tuesday’ event on the Cosmopolitan sim!  Some great bargains this week and here’s some of the Menswear and Decor.

Storax Tree have two items out in their unique style, the ‘Radio Days Wall Shelf ‘ which is 6 land impact, transfer with a resizer – great vintage appeal here – and the ‘Chimenea Fireplace’ at 7 land impact, transfer with a resizer. Touch the burnt wood for flames and a fire sound.  These items are on sale until 19th October.

Now for some of the Menswear! I went to chop wood in the virtual woods and not a lumberjack in sight :)

V-Spot have the ‘Blue Days Shirt’ for only L$50. This is an open fronted shirt in the standard 5 sizes XS – XL with a couple of excellent alphas.  Bit chilly out there, though. Good job I have that fireplace out :)

Munereia have a versatile scarf for us this week, it’s unisex with versions for ladies and gents. Options for rigged and unrigged and different sizes plus a HUD for all those textures. Looks as good at the back as it does at the front!

A$ap is our newbie at Cosmopolitan! Designer Oliver’s made these jeans entitled ‘Pray for Death’.  Standard sizes XS-XL with alpha.  I think you might catch your death of cold in them but at least you’d be in style while you were doing so :)

7 Deadly s{K}ins bargain is the ‘Morten skin and shape and brows’. Really brilliant shape and skin here and if you want to put fingernails over it (as no appliers for Slink hands) use Mandala nails – simples!

Hello Tuesday 7th Oct – Menswear & Decor

leave a comment »

There are some excellent bargains out for this week’s ‘Hello Tuesday’ on the Cosmopolitan sim! Looking outside my window today it’s rain and thunder as storms cross the UK – usual October weather, no high winds so far, though – and we don’t want them either.

Storax Tree – have these gorgeous vintage plant pots out, 3 land impact each, transfer and only 50L$ a pot. That’s one of Storax Tree’s fab woven rugs, too.

Storax Tree - Vintage pots

Munereia – a great ribbed knit top with insert that you can change via the HUD. This comes in the standard sizes and I was wearing the L/XL variety.  It’s a close to the body fitting and called ‘Sleeves’, only 50L$

AsHmOoT – love this shirt/cardigan combo. You can wear it with or without the shirt underneath and it comes in 5 standard sizes XS to XL plus a Fitted mesh version.  50% off this combo.

AshmOOt

V-Spot – 50% off this version of the Ol Timer jacket in black. Great vintage styling and I would have worn a t-shirt underneath but the Labs were just about to restart the sim so I had to take the photo and run :) This is one of my favs from V-Spot because you can wear it with so many layers underneath or on its own if you want to go out into the countryside and freeze off in the October weather *laughs* Time to switch on the heating!

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.

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.
