Feel like dressing up?  These are spectacular outfits by Heth Haute Couture, and if you’re going to a costume party together, they have matching apparel and jewelry sets for ladies and gents.  Nothing else is needed except maybe hair and sandals for the ladies and a beard for the gents.  Wonderful for roleplay sims, also.  New releases – Bollywood Prince and Princess Ensembles.

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.

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 🙂

 

 

 

 

Viking Legend

with 8 comments

ragner-lothbrok-7ds-odin

 

Ragnar Lodbrok was a legendary Viking leader and hero of old Norse poetry and sagas from the Viking age.  According to this traditional literature, Ragnar distinguished himself by many raids against France and Anglo Saxon England during the 9th century.  When I saw this new release from 7 Deadly s{K}ins called ODIN, I was put in mind of Ragnar from the television series Vikings which is based on the Ragnar of old.

To get this look, you’ll need a Bento head and a mesh body that will take Omega HUDs. The 7 Deadly s{K}ins “Odin” pack contains 20 Omega Mesh Head appliers (based on the Bento CATWA Daniel head) in 5 skin tones – Taupe/Caramel/Clay/Steam (used in the pictures)/Stone and 2 facial hair options. There is also a Bento Shape which is Copy/Modify included.  The Shape is also available separately, check out the Second Floor of the guy’s dept and you’ll find it there.

I used the Adam Mesh Body with this Shape and the 7 Deadly s{K}ins Steam tone Omega applier for same.

It’s an easy matter to change the hair base using the CATWA HUD so as to get a nice blond colour, the hair is from EMO-tions Bradley which matches up perfectly. Add pants and boots from The Forge and a fur coat from !gO! and you’ve got Ragnar!

Here he is in close-up. I really think designer, Izara, has made an excellent job of both the shape and the skin. The nose is really elegant and the eyes are well spaced.

Knight in Moonlight – 7 Deadly s{k}ins

“Ready my knights for battle. They will ride with their king once more. I have lived through others for far too long. Lancelot carried my honor, and Guenevere, my guilt. Mordred bears my sins. My knights have fought my causes. Now, my brother, I shall be… king.”

I was playing the 7 Deadly s{k}ins group boards last week and got this fabulous skin which I opened today! It’s a very pale system skin , suitable for roleplay, vampires and similar, or just because you like pale skins. It has a full beard and suits rounder faces I would think, I didn’t have to alter my shape.

I do appreciate system skins. Not everyone has a mesh body/face, or maybe they want to use a mesh head but keep their own body shape because it’s unusual or out of the average sizing. Until the Bento Project comes of age, it’s not possible to use your own face shape on a mesh head. Here’s that skin in a close-up. It was once a hunt gift for Madpea Productions so has to be good.

The apparel is by designer, saby Clary, of  Utopia, the Anton set, it’s still available and discounted by 50% at the moment.  You can do a lot with because there’s so many pieces, including matching boots. Not only for roleplay, you can mix n match the system layers and mesh pieces in other outfits. I use clothing layers to get more out of mesh, you know. Supposing you have a mesh coat that won’t fit any other mesh apparel with, try putting a clothing layer underneath.  Ok, it may have an insert but why not stretch the capacity of the outfit with clothing layers, they are still useful parts of the avatar wardrobe.

Vengeful Threads – Lord of the Forest

with 7 comments

vengeful-threads-lord-of-the-forest

 

“The Lord of the Forest” costume is Vengeful Threads‘ tribute to the Celtic God, Cernunnos or Hern the Hunter. An ancient Pagan deity, Cernunnos is associated with the cycle and renewal of life. He’s also known as “The Seeder”, in that he is the one who plants the seed and secures the proliferation of life. The oldest depictions of Cernunnos show him with a radiating rack of antlers. That branching out is symbolic of the expanding rays of sunlight, an agricultural omen. In this way, the solar connotation is a blessing for nourishing light, a promise for abundance in agricultural growth and harvests. This is a very male energy (as the sun is associated with male force), and a very assertive essence. These solar-antlers are also symbolic of self-expression, and radiating the divine inner light outwardly.

The costume is as you see in the picture with all parts as set –  including flexi headdress and waist decoration which moves with the fluttering of leaves on branches when the wind blows through the forest. Vivid green system eyes, and skin tattoo mean there’s no need to look for a matching skin, it’s all there in the set. A snake adorns the arm, and system corset and pants mean that a lot of avatar shapes will be able to adapt this costume.  Fashioned legs with hooves complete the look and an alpha takes care of the avatar legs. Permissions are partial Modify/Transfer.

This costume is on offer for Sinful Sunday, it’s only 69 L$, so if you like it – visit the mainstore asap because next week, it’ll be back to its original price.

Broody in 18th Century Cornwall

“When the doors of perception are cleansed, man will see things as they truly are, infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro’ narrow chinks of his cavern.” ~ William Blake ~

A bit of an arty photo to illustrate the new hair by No.Match, which is available at the current round of Cosmopolitan and an amazing themed art sim called, “The Gates of Melancholy”.

“No.Warning” is a gorgeous unisex hairstyle (try the demo first) that comes in all of No.Match’s colours; it flows over the shoulders and has a goodly amount at the back. Makes you look like you’ve got masses of hair just about under control! I really like it and have styled it kind of Poldark, a broody drama on UK television set in 18th century Cornwall. In fact, the setting would be just about right for the west country, too.

Other items of apparel:

Knight’s Set by ::GABRIEL::  (parts of a gacha but you can easily collect it on MP in the gacha resellers)

Man Trybal Necklace by *Phoebe* – a long time and underrated designer, go and have a look

Back to the sim which has been created by shelly70. It is based on and inspired by the life and works of the famous American painter Andrew Wyeth,  a visual artist who was primarily a realist painter. He was one of the best-known U.S. artists of the middle 20th century. The Gates of Melancholy attempts to emulate and elicit the feel of the watercolour paintings of Mr Wyeth.  You’ll find spots throughout the sim where you can experience recreations of some of his paintings and you can pose, take pictures and create your own art work as you like it. I found it atmospheric and was already forming stories in my mind as I looked around.

Cyber City Fashion with [VM]

VERO MODERO - Kaya jacket n pants

 

There’s a lot going on at Cyber City lately, so much so that it takes a lawman to deal with it! So here’s the Angel of Cyber City on the lookout for trouble and looking suitably debonair while he’s at it 🙂

Introducing four amazing outfits for men by [VM] VERO MODERO on a cyber trance theme and they could also be used in roleplay situations.

The Angel is wearing [VM]’s “”Kaya Jacket and Baggy Jeans”. All the neon yellow areas that you see can be changed to any colour by the use of a HUD, the sky’s the limit. The jacket and pants come in standard sizing and there’s a couple of alpha layers as well.  I was using the L jacket over the M jeans.

I guess this guy’s a baddie or he could have just won Mr Cyber City! He’s wearing [VM]’s “Ramsa Set” which comprises harness and pants in standard sizing, together with suspenders/braces clipped onto the waist and two black feathery shoulder pieces. I chose the M pants and suspenders/braces and the L harness.

VERO MODERO - Ramsa Set

 

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Luke and his latest enemy are dancing with light sabres. Luke wears [VM]’s “Dark Side Set”. There’s an all in one mesh with and without cloak versions, and a pair of boots. Like the Kaya set, Dark Side has a colour change HUD and all the areas you see in beige can be changed to any colour you prefer. There is one size for the Dark Side Set with alpha.

Luke’s enemy is wearing [VM]’s “Rock Coat Set”.  One size coat, pants and boots included and the coat has a colour change HUD. I rather like this set with all the belts around the waist and the coat flowed nicely.
