Beach Life

with 13 comments

Thank goodness it’s summer! At last I managed to make my beach scene on the building platform so I can show you all the summer goodies.  The main one today is the Beach Burger Shack from KraftWork, currently available at Knot & Co. Event.  It’s great fun with all the poses, there are animation sets for up to four avatars – inside and outside the burger shack.

 

Here, I’m leaning on the steps up to the kitchen of the burger shack and the seagull has already got here before me and has chips to eat!  This saves him robbing other people.  I’m wearing the Swear Shorts from Lapointe & Bastchild, currently showing at Second Pride, and you can pick up a free unisex texture change HUD bracelet from their store, too. These shorts, which are so well made by L&B,  have lots of versions for Mesh bodies including Aesthetic and Jake, also a Standard Classic version which I used here as the ADAM body takes all the standard mesh very easily.

I was using the Max head skin for the ADAM Bento head. Try out the demo first. It shows some wear to the face with eye bags and a few lines etched into the skin and makes an interesting change from the usual youth obsession.  You can make lots of subtle changes to this skin which will suit the various shades given here, via the ADAM HUD.

 

Here’s the burger shack from the front.  As it is fully modify, you can tint the outside walls and chairs any colour you like.  I went with the pastels as it suits summer scenes so well.

Finally, here’s some shots of the kitchen inside the shack. Some of the animation sets take place here, one is where you’re cooking the burgers up for customers and another, you’re leaning out of the window to tell them lunch is ready. As I said, great fun 🙂

  2. Awesome post Moz 🙂 and woot for summer, although it’s raining, 13degrees here in the UK so instead I’ll soak up the virtual SL sun instead 😀

  3. Really lovely post Moz. I’m sort of inspired by you making a beach. Some girls at my club were talking about it last night, but I’m not sure I’d do a good job 🙂

    • Thanks very much, Merri:) It’s not that difficult, go over to Felix Landscaping and find the beach area builds – maybe you’ll get inspiration from those, there are pieces of landscaped sand with waves attached. Also, Heart Botanicals have a fantastic beach area which may also give you ideas for your own build.
