Vintage Chillax on the Beach

with 4 comments

 

Chez Moi Furnitures have come up with the best beach set of the season, so far! At least in my humble opinion but then I do love Vintage. You can have any colour you like  as long as it’s pink with white trimmings. With a strategically placed white kitten (for my PG blog), I’m ready to chillax and ignore the Election, just for today 🙂 The peacock is only interested in the cookies, after all, he’s a sensible chap.

 

 

The peacock is a new pet and he’s from TLC Home Collection. You’ll find two versions in the White Peacocks pack, currently at the Cosmopolitan Event – tail up and tail down. I actually remember when as a child we spent some years in Sri Lanka, there were quite a few white peacocks in our village who used to guard the area from snakes which they would kill and sometimes eat. They were allowed to go in and out of the houses to do this, encouraged by tasty titbits left for them.   Very useful birds! When there was rain coming they used to dance. During the mating season the peahens were embarrassed by the fights between the peacocks and used to turn around so they didn’t have to see the chaos.  I don’t know how many folks used to observe this but I was and still am fascinated by Nature in all Her glory.

 

 

Here’s all the gen in detail:-

ADAM Mesh Body – v.1.4b – Skin 1 #9 with neck blend tattoo – perfect for when you want that combination with the Avatar Head

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 dĂ©cor, 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!

We had a nice afternoon here today, it was summer hot and I spent most of the time in the garden and sun room – very nice!  Doesn’t give me too much time for blogging though, but hopefully you’ll have all the details you need after the pictures.

Old Guns go for it!

Given that Second Life® is obsessed with youthful avatars, I thought I’d style an older guy.  This is the “Marc 60 head skin” from ADAM.  He’s got wrinkles but he’s in pretty good nick!

The ADAM Bento head HUD has a lot of options on it, one of which is to add differently coloured eyebrows to skins that have a ‘no eyebrow’ option.  You can also change the colour around the eyes on a make-up layer, and recolour the eye lashes.   I did that to match the shading I chose on the Marc 60 skin. It’s surprising what a few subtle shade changes can make.  Worth the fiddling to get a more realistic look. And guys… if you can change a wheel on your motor, you can use the HUD!

Using the ADAM Mesh Body, I chose the skin #8 on the HUD to match up the face. Ok, so this guy works out, he’s not alone in that 🙂 Occasionally you do find a 60 year old that has a better body than some 20 year olds, especially in the film industry.  I added SLINK Bento Hands for the pose, FOXCITY has some excellent Bento poses for men, check them out.  Ginger, we need some ADAM Bento hands!

*~*~*

Here’s what I used in detail:-

ADAM Mesh Body v1.4b
Skin No 8. from included HUD with white eyebrows and beard from HUD

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.

22769 – Baroque Gazebo – LI 47

Here’s the angel (and being this angelic can’t last) in close-up.  The angelic face and body appliers are by 7 Deadly s{K}ins and you’ll find them in the guy’s section, ground floor.

 

Here’s what I was wearing: –
