Angel or Devil – who can tell?

with 5 comments

 

I do like the combination of opposites in blogging scenes, the sort of scene that tells a story. So this scene was inspired by an original Mesh outfit and jewelry from Heth Haute Couture and a super Halloween Chalk Backdrop by KraftWork & HERA.

The Chalk Backdrops are from a gacha which will be available at the new edition of SaNaRae.  There are 8 backdrops in the set, all have poses applicable to the scene on the individual backdrops, I chose the Halloween type one here – and it contains poses for angelic and devilish mischief!  These are great fun, see the gacha KEY in the details below.

Heth’s Group Gift for October is so generous – it’s the Marq  Men’s Suit which is original Mesh in 5 sizes and should suit most Mesh bodies. I was using the ADAM Mesh Body v1.4 and the L size fitted beautifully.  This is an all-in-one suit which includes jacket in embellished raw silk (see that excellent texturing on the close-up shot), matching shirt and pants, belt, formal dress shoes in white and prim filler socks (very useful).   Now there’s special artwork on the jacket breast and Heth says that this “… features an original artistic design above the heart that you can subtly let those around you know that you believe in love and that everyone should have the right to love whom they will. The art features 2 figures embracing and below the ❤ is ❤ is <3.”

*~*~*

October’s free gift for Men is the HRH Prince Gorman Indigo Brooch.  Heth says, “By royal appointment of HRH King August Florian of Sybaris, Heth Haute Couture – the Official Jeweler of Sybaris is honored to offer this new treasure – A mesh brooch crafted in platinum, featuring a crown and leaf motif, and centered in a Celtic knot unity design. Created for HRH Prince Gorman Indigo, Lord High Chancellor of Sybaris. Share your love for all things royal while adding royal style to your finest ensembles with this stunning new brooch.”.

And I thought, oh yes, I know nothing about all this but it sounds kinda familiar – so I went to Google, the font of all useless knowledge, and it turns out that Sybaris was an ancient Greek Colony in the Gulf of Taranto,  Southern Italy that was founded around 720 bc and was notorious for its luxurious living.  Its inhabitants became famous among the Greeks  for their hedonism,  feasts, and excesses, to the extent that “sybarite” and “sybaritic” have become bywords for opulent luxury and outrageous pleasure seeking.  Sounds great!  Unfortunately it was sacked in 510 bc and suffered years of occupation and repatriation before being finally abandoned and buried by sediment from the Crati river over time.  The ruins were rediscovered and excavated in the 1960s.  Well there’s a cautionary tale if you like!

September Suits

with 5 comments

 

If you fancy a brand new suit, these beauties have just been released at Heth Haute Couture. My favourite one is above, this is 100% original Mesh, so nobody else will be producing it.  Click on the picture for a larger version and you’ll see the absolutely gorgeous texture work on that jacket.  It’s raw embellished silk and in advanced lighting conditions, the embroidery shows up really well. That jacket is joined by a black shirt, slacks and belt.  The tie is optional but I think it really finishes the suit off well.

Above shows the full suit.  Also included is a pair of formal shoes with prim socks so there’s no need to struggle with any gaps, and of course you can move these to fit perfectly.  I was wearing the ADAM Mesh Body with the medium suit.  There’s 5 sizes and the suit is an all-in-one piece, just click and wear.

The next suit is the Christopher Men’s Formal.  Very smart and something a bit different to make you stand out in a crowd.  There is an embroidery overlay on the jacket and you can see this best in Advanced Lighting Conditions.  On Midday, it will appear black, but that’s no bad thing!  Again, this is 100% original Mesh, and it’s so nice to have something unique.  An all-in-one piece, click and wear with no fitting problems.  I was wearing the size medium again, there are 5 sizes in all.

This time, there’s a smart bow tie that you can add to the outfit.   And I really like those formal shoes – same as with the Neo suit.

*~*~*

Now I’m a bit late showing you the September group gift because I thought I’d already covered it  (your blogger here is getting old and feeble *laughs*), but there are still 3 days left to  go and claim your copy.  It’s a casual set which includs the boots – the Chandler Men’s Ensemble.

Click and add this all-in-one outfit consisting of Jeans, Heth’s designer H Belt, and hooded casual top.  Wonderful textures here, the top has plenty of room, 3 quarter sleeves and a zipper feature.  This is a great look for Autumn days and will fit most Mesh bodies – the sizing is 5 standard Mesh sizes, I was wearing the small version so there’s plenty of room for larger sized gents. Don’t forget to wear your Group!

Last but not least, this is the free gift for September. You don’t have to belong to the HHC group, even, to collect this platinum and peridot bracelet.

There’s a standard and a resize version included of the Khalid Bracelet.  Peridot are mid-green gemstones and the intensity of the stone depends upon the iron content. Peridot is mined in Arkansas, Arizona on the San Carlos Reservation, Hawaii, Nevada, and New Mexico at Kilbourne Hole, in the US; and in Australia, Brazil, China, Egypt, Kenya, Mexico, Myanmar (old Burma), Norway, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Sri Lanka, and Tanzania. And some have even been found in meteorites!

Those glasses I was wearing with the Neo Suit are the HHC Men’s Couture Aviator Shades (silver) – various colours available instore.
