Rainy Day

Hola! I’m up in here once again to blog up some things in my inventory that need not stay in there forever and ever. It’s actually quite the sunny day outside right now, but I’ve been feeling like my only time available for blogging or taking pictures are rainy days. Rainy days for me would be days without any sports or social activities going on and I can take the time to put together a post. I’d love to be out in the Sun today, but it’s deceiving as it’s a bit cool today at 31°F. Thus, you get a post from me! Are you excited!? Okay now calm down your excitement because my pics are not that amazing. Let’s get into it:

Winter’s Coming

Ohai! I’m sure it’s getting old, but I keep forgetting about this blog thing that I have. Although, seriously this time, I do finally have some time to sit down and blog. Pretty much my entire season of weeks packed with sports being played or watched are down to a minimum now and I can do some hibernating for the cold winters (except for indoor soccer). And speaking of winter… it’s well on its way here to my neck of the woods. We’re supposed to get our first snowfall this weekend, but that’s up for debate between Mother Nature and the meteorologists. However it does give me an excellent excuse to push some winter fashion, so let’s have at it:

Look of the Day

Simple LOTD

Honestly, not too much for talking right now. Here’s a quick hitter of the things of note in this look. The hoodie is from Atomic. She just opened up her new island and it’s pretty fantastic. From what I gathered, the sim is created of completely handmade textures and that’s a chore to say the least. The only main things I saw that weren’t already in her satellite stores for guys were the male skins. I tried them on, but they weren’t my cup of tea. On the hoodie itself is something pretty cool. The prim piece on the wrist is actually two prims, one connects to the forearm and the other connects to the hand. The prims work together almost like a ball and socket joint, so that as your hands move, in whatever AO you have, the prims will follow.

The other point of note in this look are the shoes. The House of Curios has been coming up with some better and better items for their bottom basement prices. These Bolts shoes fit that mold. They’re scripted such that you can change the body of the shoe, the sole, and laces. Their blue-window system is not as great as say the ones that come with the UBU Drunks, but for L$40 how can you go wrong?

Two Sides

I’ve got a twosome of quality outfits here from different ends of the spectrum again.

Roborock Tees

The first is featuring a new set of tees from Kari entitled Roborock. Personally I like to call them Roboboogie. And those are not digitized robotic voices in the video, I listened to them do it live. The two tees on display here are Keytar (left) and Turntable (right). One of my favorite things about these shirts, though it’s hard to tell here, is actually the rolled up prim sleeves. A lot of care was taken in the shape of the scuplted prim to properly fit the form of the male avatar’s bicep.

Finishing off this outfit are some really nice light jeans from LF Fashions, Detour’s Jaywalker sneakers in brown, BroGear Black Label watch in brown, and Aitui’s Sleepwalk hair in dark brown highlighted. The cherry on top here are the Studio Headphones from Gritty Kitty. They have two attachment points if you want them around your neck (spine) and if you want them on your head (nose). They also spit out mini-note particles.

The second outfit I’ve got for you guys started with the green text of a subscribe-o-matic message that danced across the bottom of my screen about a new release from Laqroki. I knew I was going to make my way over there and when I did, Monta Horan was also looming about in there. He must’ve gotten the same message as I did. Seeing as black and red were dominant colors in Fall/Winter ’08 fashion shows this year and tartan prints were scattered throughout, I thought I’d run this outfit a little fashion forward. I paired up this fantastically created coat (and you can definitely see that by Monta’s post because it’s much harder to hide flaws in lighter colors) with an older item from Armidi’s Gisaci collection. The layer underneath is the Classic Cashmere Sweater in Cranberry. On the lower half, I picked up a tip from Professor Ex and snagged these Ravenwear Men’s Plaids. At the bottom I’m rockin’ the Kalnin’s Classica shoes in black. These well-scripted pair of shoes come with all of the colors in them and blue windows to adjust everything. It’s always nice when you don’t have to dig into your inventory to find another color of the shoes you have on. (the Detour Jaywalkers in the last outfit do that too w/out the blue windows via click on the shoes) All the way back to the top, we’ve got a very versatile and stylized, but easy breezy wig appropriately called Seabreeze from Chase. Last, but certainly not least, my staple aviators that I love and cherish…the Armidi Gisaci – Lifestyle Aviators with the silver rims.

In The Mix

Hey everybody, a new one flying your way. The only story you’re going to get on this one is the story of how I came across this hat + hair. It all started @ Hair Fair ’08. I browsed around OnRez and grabbed the slim amount of demos I found for guys on there. Thankfully Jesseaitui came through on his promise to have some new hairs. As soon as I put on the My Agenda demo, I knew that I was going to be chopping through lag like Rambo through the jungle with his machete. (Someone should make a lag machete for struggling av’s to take to Hair Fair & Armidi) Thus, I did my chopping and got this awesome hat & combo. Soon after buying My Agenda, I knew I needed to throw it into a blog, and to blog it I’ve got to have an outfit to follow. I tossed something together quick from some other newer releases. Flipping through all of my clothing, I tossed on this Cosy sweater from Amodica Lookr. I can’t remember when or where I picked up that Adam Soler had opened up a new spot with new clothing, but that’s inconsequential here. All I needed to know was that this stuff is quality and Adam made it. Usually when you buy a horizontally striped sweater, the seams look all crazy where 95% of the time the stripes don’t line up. It’s obvious that Adam put in the time and effort required to line of the stripes at the seams, instead of slapping them on, because this is one of the best lineups at the seams of any horizontally striped shirt that I own.

Finishing off the main portion of this outfit are The Rascal jeans from Kari and the Hoorenbeek Patagonia Boots in Black. As some clothing prices seem to be running out of control, Kari comes through with some quality textured jeans for the reasonable price of L$100 each. All 4 pairs of jeans (The Rebel, The Rascal, The John Doe, and The Scoundrel) from Kari are very well done with prim cuffs. The Patagonia boots from Hoorenbeek are very versatile from a regular casual look to a much more hardcore look. The ones I chose for this outfit have a texture of a smooth and new pair of boots, but the Used Black form of the boots that I have in my inventory are quite nice as well.

Now, we go to the accessories. The pièce de résistance here is definitely the Cigged scarf from Fuel. I got this item as a gift from a friend, but never really had a true place that I could put it. I’m just extremely happy I could find the right home for the accessory. When you get something that you know is really fantastic, but don’t have the right clothing to wear it with…it really sucks. You really want to wear the item that you were gifted, but you have nothing else to really wear with it. Then, that item will sit in your inventory and sometimes never even be looked at again. Thus, from the depths of my inventory comes this scarf. Though it’s actually in a women’s store (towards the back on a standing tower), it’s definitely more unisex. An additional accessory worth noting here is an older item from BroGear. It’s the Black Label – ROGUE Leather Watch in Black. I love this watch for an accessory for hardcore outfits. If you’re not a big fan of wearing cuffs or straps, I strongly suggest you roll by BroGear and grab this watch.

A final item of note in here is the Tribal Facial tat created by Mina Firefly. I really really like this as an accent tat. Currently the tattoo is not available for sale as Mina is still working on setting up her store after relocation, but I believe you’re welcome to harass…I mean…buy it from her by dropping her an IM. Just tell her I sent you after her and maybe she’ll speed up the process of setting up a storefront. 🙂
