Last minute goodies! The June Group Gift from 7 Deadly s[K]ins and The Arcade Gacha goodness by HEXtraordinary and Plaaka.  These are both available until the end of June – so a couple of days.

There is also a ♥♥ MID-SEASON SALE ♥♥ on at 7 Deadly s[K]ins right now  with up to 50% discounts on all the marked items in the store and this includes brand new skins and appliers.

*~*~*

“Judas” in the Clay tone is the group gift, and it’s a pale toned skin but wonderfully expressive. I was using my own shape and the Daniel Bento head from CATWA.  There’s a lot in the group gift – the face applier which is OMEGA so as long as you have the right Relay, you can apply it to most Mesh Heads plus there’s OMEGA body appliers for smooth, hairy and trail with and without hairbase.  This is a very handsome skin and beard combo, so if you like paler skins, then go for it… but go quickly 🙂

Last two days also for the Arcade as well, so many of these gacha won’t be repeated and it’s well worth braving the inevitable queues to get to your favoured machine.  HEXtraordinary has an aquarium with fishes and snails machine, and Plaaka has aquatic plants and small garden builds in theirs. Really beautiful products!  If you miss the Arcade, there are always the resellers on Marketplace and I’ve got many a great bargain from there.

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 🙂

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:-

On Moz:-
ADAM Mesh Body – v.1.4b – Skin 1 #9 with neck blend tattoo – perfect for when you want that combination with the Avatar Head
Hair – NO.MATCH – No.Mojito – browns HUD
Shape – my own for the ADAM Mesh Body

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.

Old Guns go for it!

with 4 comments

 

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

CATWA animated Mesh Eyes

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.
