22769 ~ [Bauwerk] recently brought out this fabulous Starship Skybox which instantly reminded me of you know what, being the Trekkie nerd I am *laughs*.  So I thought I’d have a bit of fun and create my very own Vulcan chap. His personality turned out to be anything but how that fantasy race actually act, but never mind! Maybe he’s stepped one too many times into the teleporter, maybe Dr McCoy was right about teleporters – he hated them  Here’s my favourite quote involving the good doctor…

McCoy: Where are we going?
Kirk: Where they went.
McCoy: Suppose they went *nowhere*?
Kirk: Then this will be your big chance to get away from it all.

Home & Garden Expo 2017 – Dream Boat

leave a comment »

 

Hope you’re all enjoying the Home & Garden Expo 2017!  The Expo raises money for Relay For Life of Second Life® (RFL of SL). Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature fund raising event, and RFL of SL is one of its virtual counterparts. You can find more information about RFL of SL – HERE

I thought today, we’d do a bit of fantasy with 3rd Eye Perceptions’ amazing Wind of Change Boat. This stunning piece also has the Paper Birds as a separate item and in the photo I’d actually added this to my avatar, along with the lamp.  After much fiddling with both those pieces, which are really décor, I managed to get some good shots.  The boat has solo animations for ladies and gents.

 

I’m also showing the two Donation items from Jz for Men – board shorts and open shirt.  Jz is on Hope 7 and has some really nice mesh body compatible/standard sizing  apparel.

Later on, I went to Orcadi Island and met the hound who insisted on being in the photo. I don’t think the kitten was very happy about that!

Here’s details of the Home & Garden pieces I used:-

Casually Smart

with 2 comments

It’s quite difficult to find the smart casual look in Second Life® Menswear, so I was really pleased to receive the latest outfit from Heth Haute Couture  which is called the “Rodrigo Men’s Ensemble”.

This is a slim fit look, so even the larger sizes will reflect that style.  I went over to the St Kitts sim which is a gorgeous tropical interpretation of the real life St Kitts in the Caribbean, and took photographs against a rich background of palm trees and furniture suitable for hot climates. If you like beach sims, you’ll adore this one.

So what’s in the set?  Well, there’s the slim fit jacket with 4 button opening and mandarin collar, and this has a relaxed t-shirt and brocade waistcoat insert.  Then there’s matching chino pants as a separate piece, really nice brushed leather zip boots, and Fedora Hat.  The jacket and pants come in Standard sizing XS to XL – I was wearing the size M pants with the size L jacket.  Boots and Fedora come with a handy resizer which is easy to use.  The included alpha will take care of all the pieces.

I’m also wearing the new brooch from HHC – this is a fun and beautifully made piece.  If you click on the bee, its wings will animate as if it’s buzzing!  Created with over 300 brilliant cut canary, apricot and black diamonds. A very unique couture jewelry collectable, the “Jeweled Bee Brooch” was created to celebrate Earth Day all year long and to draw attention to our dwindling world bee population.

Pick up your copy of the “Rodrigo Men’s Ensemble” and “Jeweled Bee Brooch” from these outlets:

The skin I’m wearing is from 7 Deadly s{K}ins  as I like to include one system skin a month from them (I know a lot of you still like to wear system).  I was playing the gacha at the front of the store and this is the “Jaimy” skin # 6 from the gacha of the same name.  Only L$50 for this!  They must be joking, it’s such good quality.  A nice mid tone skin with beard and cut eyebrow feature.  Why don’t you try your luck?  Don’t forget to click on the Mini Mania boards, too.  Low amounts of hits required, some as low as 10 hits.

Cheers, m’dears 🙂

Stairway to Heaven

with 10 comments

 

This stunning Baroque Terrace from 22769 ~ [Bauwerk] has been in my Inventory for a while because I couldn’t do anything near to the beautiful posts my fellow bloggers have been doing, but this morning I got some inspiration. Having rezzed the terrace on my building platform yet again, I looked at the large amount of steps in the build that amounted to a veritable white stairway rising up to the sky… Stairway to Heaven!  Back down to the garden, I cleared everything off the lake, rezzed a white backdrop and it all started to make sense.

The terrace contains the statues and an oval platform at the top surrounded by a balustrade and another set of steps down the other side.  Some topiary bushes in pots are included at the sides.  I placed the Baroque Gazebo on the top platform and a little rock waterfall by Felix landscaping within it.  As you can see from the welcoming angel, it’s quite a large piece and would be suitable for grand gardens, parks and any public space where you wanted to make an architectural statement.

Here’s what I used:-

These are available at the I ❤ Roleplay Event, which runs until the end of the month.  All beautiful original Mesh with Permissions of Copy/Modify.

King of the North

with 5 comments

Here’s Jon Snow braving the other side of the wall because he’s forgotten to take in sufficient supplies to bolster up the Night’s Watch. By some trick of the light (and maybe destiny in my world) his shadow falls over the land making him King of the North.

Loving the outfit?  It’s April’s Group Gift by Heth Haute Couture and features a massive fur collar and all-in-one costume.  Absolutely love it and as he’s called it “King of the North Ensemble”  I just couldn’t resist the inference. This would suit most avatar and mesh bodies because you really knock those out with an alpha. The only trick is fitting the collar correctly.

If you’re fitting on a system avatar, then use the slide bars in the Torso section to get a good fit on the neckline. Don’t forget to add both the alphas included in the outfit, one is for the body and one for the system hands. When you’re satisfied with the fit, rename and save your shape. Keep it in the outfit folder and then you won’t have to mess about again.

The April free gift from Heth Haute Couture is the “King of the North Brooch”. I removed the fur cape to better show you. It’s gold with red rubies and rather magnificent. It will show up  under the fur cape but not as clearly as you see here.

Pick up your copy of the “King of the North” Ensemble and Brooch from these outlets:

The skin I’m wearing is from 7 Deadly s{K}ins  and it’s the Men’s Group Gift. “Bo” contains:-

OMEGA face applier – Caramel, Clay, Steam, Stone, Taupe

OMEGA body applier – smooth Caramel, Steam, Taupe, Clay, Stone

I chose the Caramel shade and put it on CATWA Bento Daniel Head (my own shape) using the OMEGA relay. This is a mature adult looking skin and goes very well with a number of outfits. There’s a shadow of a beard on it which is flattering and more realistic, I think. Very nice skin anyway, and if you belong to 7 Deadly s{K}ins  group, you’ll find many other great deals as well as hunts and generous gifts. There’s an Easter Egg hunt on at the moment which is for group members only. More about that in another post.

Cheers, m’dears 🙂

 

 

 

 

Dinosaurus!

with 2 comments

 

I love a good Dinosaur movie, there aren’t many I haven’t seen.  My favourite story in this genre is Jules Verne’s “The Lost World” which is so exciting and well written.  Although penned in 1874, it is still an excellent read and I believe you can get it for nowt on Kindle as a classic.  There were some friendly dinosaurs in the novel, or at least they didn’t attack the hapless humans too often! And I think they were plesiosaurs, the chaps that are still supposed to be there in the waters of Loch Ness, Scotland.

All these recollections were brought on by [VM] Vero Modero‘s hunt gift this month, and it’s the “Dino Hoodie”.  The ITBH Hunt is on until March 29th so if you hurry, you’ll manage to get your copy.  The Hint is… surrounded by skulls.. the object is a Blue Butterfly dollabie.  Now the Dino Hoodie has five sizes, XS through to XL and I was wearing the L size. It’s in the men’s department, just follow the floor map at the landing point. It’s not difficult to find 🙂

Here’s what I was wearing: –

**RE** Ewan Necklace – Male

[VM] VERO MODERO – Dino Hoodie Size L (in sizes XS – XL with alpha)

ADAM Mesh Body v.1.4b and ADAM boxer v1.2 underwear
CATWA Bento Daniel Bento Mesh Head
7 Deadly s{K}insOMEGA Head Applier ACE V2 HB Caramel and OMEGA Body Applier – Smooth Caramel and don’t forget that March’s Group Gift is a 400L$ store voucher
