Beau Monstre – Vengeful Threads

with 6 comments

Vengeful Threads_Beau Monstre


Vengeful Threads are taking part in Menswear Fashion Week 2016 with this fascinating outfit called, “Beau Monstre”.  As always with VT the difference is in the detailing. with the pattern on the back of the jacket being repeated in the matching tee top. Lapels, shoulder line and cuffs all match up to give a beautiful look to this low neck outfit.

Sizing is standard XS, M, L, XL, XXL for the pants and jacket with alphas for both. For the top you can either go with a clothing layer or Omega appliers for mesh bodies. I found the medium fitted well enough around the neckline and arms. Given that there’s a further 3 sizes above that, it should fit a lot of shapes. Footwear – you could either wear short boots or shoes with a bit of skin showing, the pants are versatile with a well shaped mesh.

I’m playing around a bit here – this is the box that the outfit arrived in. The pose is included and it certainly has possibilities so a bit of a bonus!

Cheers, m’dears 🙂

P.S. The animated pelican insisted on being in the picture because he reckons he’s a Beau Monstre too,  and you can get one of his mates from THC (The Home Collection) – MP

There’s some beautiful and clever Home & Garden items at the current round of Cosmopolitan – and there’s still three days left to go and pick up those last minute bargains! I chose four designers to showcase today.

The Home Collection – “Enchanted Swans”.  One of those beautiful garden pieces that is ready to place and no messing around! As with all products at Cosmopolitan, it’s original mesh. A landscaping piece with pool, furniture, plants and – swans.

Enchanted Swans is 39 LI in total with an extra 2 LI for each swan. They swim around the pool in a mirror motion and at one point meet up to form a heart shape. The bench has 11 poses, all nice and relaxed. Permissions are Copy/Modify.

Galland Homes – “Stonehurst Redux”.  Designer Robert’s new house which will fit perfectly on a 512 m plot. A great balcony and front paving area is attached and it’s 26 LI in total. Lots of prims left to furnish this spacious home.

A look inside reveals warm wooden floors, stone bricks walls in places and a floating staircase. Modern styling that actually looks and feels a lot more expansive than it measures. You can Copy/Modify Stonehurst Redux, enlarge it to suit your space.

Perfect for first time land owners, maybe a guest house on larger land. Tall windows add to the spacious effect, inside and out.

Just thinking, this would make quite a good historical roleplay set as well.
