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.

7 Deadly s[K]ins – Judas – OMEGA Body Applier – Trail V1 Clay and OMEGA Face Applier – Judas Clay GG June V3 HB – GUYS department location

“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
Hair – No.Match – No.Horizon – Blondes pack
Suki’s Silks & Fashions – Winter Storm Pants
*~*~*
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.

Holding back the Years

7ds-lars-5-gacha-skin-full

 

When I first saw this fabulous cap and hair by no.match, I was reminded of an ancient (to some of you) song by Simply Red (1985).  The lead singer was much into wearing caps and my partner Arrchie describes the style as “bad boy with a bit of good in him”. I like it!

Anways, I’d been waiting ages for the right skin to come along and lo and behold there was one waiting for me at the 7 Deadly s{K}ins new set of gacha in the guy’s department. The Lars system skin gacha looked very good so I put my 50L in and got the Lars #5.  The skin is a mid tone with freckles and slight beard shadow, it suits the cap and hair so well.

So what to put with it?  I’d been making an Art Deco scene recently (will be on the next post) and because the furniture required me to at least do one pose, I went to see about casual male fashion in the 1930s.  Apparently, the Duke of Windsor started off the casual look with canvas slacks and tucked into the waist sports shirts, at least he made it popular in the UK and Europe. Otherwise, it was suits and shirts as usual. Some Hollywood film stars also contributed to a more relaxed casual style for men at that time.  Flat caps were worn and also, would you believe it, tank tops!  And I thought they came out in the 1970s but they were a revival of an older style.

I updated the look with an over-the-waist shirt by Cold Ash and an eagle necklace by RE Industries.  The Zeed watch followed the vintage style rather well, I thought.

Here’s the apparel in detail with direct MP links where I can find them:

Cold Ash – Westbrook Shirt with colour HUD

Duh! – Tassel Loafers (on system feet) dollarbie on MP

RE Industries – Eagle Necklace with texture HUD

Blank Line – Role up canvas Jeans

no.match – Cap Hair with colour HUD – mainstore

Zoom – Zeed watch with texture HUD
for Swagbag Sept 2016
