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 🙂

 

 

 

 

Richard’s an original!

with 7 comments

I’m proud to present Heth Haute Couture‘s first original Mesh suit, it’s called the “Richard Men’s Suit”.  Available in 4 colourways – black, maroon, royal and emerald.

This is a couture suit with a slim fit jacket which cradles the neck in a close grown on collar. It has an open front that shows the 5 button waistcoat underneath and the crisp, white shirt.  Matching pants show the details with shadow creases and they fit just nicely over the included wingtip leather shoes and sock inserts.

There’s a choice of either long or bow ties in gold to match the buttons. Or wear just the white shirt with one gold button showing, that looks equally good.

The royal version is the only colourway with a patterned waistcoat, and this was my favourite.  A close second was the maroon version. I’m a record shop here on the Long Journey sim, a place with so many shops, cafeterias and stores with superb landscaping slotted into a small space, you won’t believe it. You can see the pocket detail here, the flaps are 3D and lift off the jacket surface in a natural manner.

I’m wearing the emerald version here in one of the little garden areas at the back of the cafe pictures. The jacket and pants are separate so you can mix n match.  I tried the royal jacket with the black pants and it looked good.  You’d have to purchase the 2 sets, though. Both jacket and pants have 5 sizes – XS to XL.  I was wearing the L size jacket over the M size pants.

This is the black version, and I finish up the afternoon in a Chinese restaurant where I’m meeting… whom?  I leave that up to you to guess!

Jewelry was also by Heth Haute Couture as follows:

Couture glasses from the Alessio set, Calla Lily from The Grooms Collection, Black Diamond earring from the Jean Paul Ensemble, Marduk Men’s Ring and  Quinn Men’s Ring.

*~*~*

I was also wearing the Devan Smoked HB V1 face applier from 7 Deadly s{K}ins. It’s OMEGA so you can apply it to a number of Mesh heads – this is the Daniel Bento by CATWA. Pick up the Devan face applier pack at the guy’s department of 7 Deadly s{K}ins.

HHC – King of the Road

with 5 comments

 

The March group gifts at Heth Haute Couture have arrived and they are strictly royal!

The men’s group gift is the “His Majesty Crown”, a magnificent piece of jewelry featuring over 1000 animated mesh diamonds. The crown has a gold mesh base with all those brilliant cut diamonds and also emerald cut sapphires (rectangular) surrounded by marquis cut diamonds. There’s four parts to this crown, just keep adding them. If you want to reposition the crown, make sure you have selected all four parts.

The matching “His Majesty Brooch” is a free gift, you don’t need to belong to the HHC group to collect this beauty. It has a gold mesh base with animated mesh diamonds surrounding a royal blue sapphire. Both pieces contain a micro-resizer.

I was wearing the HHC “Timo Men’s Ensemble” which you can also find at the mainstore.

“Then shall the realm of Albion
Come to great confusion.
Then comes the time, who lives to see ’t,
That going shall be used with feet.
This prophecy Merlin shall make, for I live before his time.”
~ King Lear Act 3, Scene 2 ~
*~*~*
I always liked this quote from King Lear. Albion is the ancient word for England and Shakespeare often left prophesies in his work under the guise of fiction.  There are various interpretations but it does speak of a future time, I’ll leave it to you to wonder.
The picture turned out rather atmospherically for once, so it required a mysterious quote!
I was using the 7 Deadly s{K}ins Crowley system skin in Drow tone (there are masses of Mesh body and head appliers in this set, too, but for those of you who prefer system, then these are ace).  It’s all to tell you about the 7 Deadly s{K}ins sale which is on now and runs to February 26th.  It’s a massive instore sale with 40% off all items.  Caspervend items will automatically refund at the point of sale and for items not on the Caspervend send in your transaction history to get the 40% refund.  Also, there’s 14 more days where the Group join up is only 14 L$.  Can’t be bad!

Other apparel:-
My favourite necklace at present lol – by Real Evil Industries, this is the Eagle necklace which has many texture change options and won’t break the bank.
Crown – from the Heth Haute Couture set – Myrddin

Home & Garden pieces:-
22769 ~ [bauwerk] Destroyed Pillar – COMMON
22769 ~ [bauwerk] Destroyed House – RARE
These are from a very useful gacha “Ghost Town” which is on at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival, this quarterly Event runs until March 7th. I only used a couple of pieces to get a really good backdrop. Worth collecting!
TLC Home Collection – Osprey – who originally arrives with a perch, but as he’s modifiable, I took him off the perch. I use him a lot just like this.

February Gifts at Heth Haute Couture

I’m just raising a glass to designer Hethwen, for the February group gifts at HHC!

The “Fitz Men’s Suit” is the group gift, a couture men’s suit that features a slim fit black crepe jacket with golden dragon embroidery. It makes a statement without going over the top. We get a matching crepe short waistcoat with black crepe slacks, a matt textured fabric that shows off the dragon design really well. Also includes a silk tie, leather wingtip shoes which are beautifully detailed with matching socks and a pair of couture shades! The sunglasses are fully Modify so you’ll be able to get a decent fit.  Here’s the reverse view where you get the whole Chinese dragon design.

Fitz is offered in 5 standard mesh sizes – XS to XL – and is a one-piece mesh. Just add the alpha, click on your preferred size and Add, couldn’t be easier to achieve that bold look. I was using the size L.

Now for the February free gift, the “Dancing with Dragons Brooch”.  Yes, this is completely free to non-group members!  A bold and stylish brooch that will add perfect panache to every ensemble. Two impressive dragons dance around a mounted centre ruby heart set in platinum.  The dragons are embellished with animated ruby eyes. A must have collectible piece for everyone who loves dragons and fine couture jewelry. Includes two sizes (large and small) and comes with a micro resizer to provide a perfect custom size.  I chose the large size which fitted nicely on the lapel of the suit. The smaller version would look equally good as an accent piece placed on a tie.

As the new year begins it’s a great time for group gifts with stores wishing to get customers’ attention, and Heth Haute Couture is no exception. For us gents, there’s the “William Men’s Suit” which is a whole outfit including shoes. Here’s what you get in the pack:-

~ A classic couture slim fit jacket with standing collar. The fabric is a heavily embroidered pattern in shades of grey, black and tan with pops of white. The accent colour is repeated in the white silk shirt and collar. Black crepe slacks match the jacket. This is an all-in-one Mesh to fit 5 standard sizes XS  – XL. I was wearing the size M.

~ All-in-one Alpha layer… it’s a couple of clicks to fit this suit, so easy.

~ Polished wingtip leather shoes and a pair of very useful filler socks for that perfect fit.

hhc-brighton-mens-suit-jacket

Here’s the second December release suit from Heth Haute Couture, which I promised to show you yesterday.  It’s called the “Brighton Men’s Suit” and has three colourways for the shirt – a dark green (which is the one I’m wearing) a rather nice maroon red and a more vibrant blue.

I really liked this tailored couture suit, it’s that bit different with the open necked shirt and you could wear quite long necklaces with it. There’s a single breasted open front jacket with silk shirt. This is matched up with a pair of black crepe slacks, wool socks and leather wingtip shoes. This is an elegant suit and when I put it together, I could see it would be useful well after the festive season.  The pack included 5 classic mesh sizes XS – XL. As my shape was slim, I was wearing the S size.

These suits are only 199L$ each, 399L$ for all three in a Fatpack. So for very little money, you can have an attractive and elegant suit to party with!  Here’s the other two colours from HHC’s vendor photo – red and blue.

I’m wearing another one of the Advent Calendar skins from 7 Deadly s{K}ins, today. This is a system skin called “Ragna” and the tone is called Snow, 2 versions – with and without hairbase. You also get SLINK appliers for hands and feet. The “Unicorn” shape is included and as you can see, it all turns out rather Asian which makes a nice change.  You really needed a longer face than my usual one to show this skin off to it’s best advantage which is why I used the gift shape.

There’s a different variety of skins/appliers every day until 31st.  You do need to belong to the 7 Deadly s{K}ins group but you can join free for this month!  Whether you wear system or Mesh body/face – there’s something for everyone.

Here’s a landmark to the 7 Deadly s{K}ins  gent’s department – go in the door and to the right,  you’ll find the Advent calendar tree on the wall at the back. Each day is designated by a miniature Christmas Tree, have your group on and simply click to receive the gift for that day.
