Firelight and Furniture. Post #201


I do not usually have the patience to build a set, decorate etc for my blog pictures.  People who do this properly and a lot have my total respect (Chance Raynier is a prime example for guys...and what about THIS one..can you imagine how long that takes to set up?!)


Clearly my lack of patience is the only reason no-one would let me decorate their house. Nothing to do with my approach ("what have I not packed up yet?...oh look feet!")  I have been doing a disservice to the amazing group of decor/furniture designers who make things for events like The Men's Department.  I have pulled out some new items, and some older TMD items from designers like Cheeky Pea, Deco, Pilot & Kusshon.  All are beautiful and if I was so inclined, I would clad myself with your works. (Note to self: some of this stuff must be wearable)

Other newness includes: Fishermen's sweaters from Sleepy Eddy at TMD, a pair of cool cargos from Kracker and the boots and hair that I blogged previously.

STOP PRESS: The Amacci Sale starts 12 January and ends 20 January. All single packs will be sold for 95 Linden dollars and the fat-pack will cost 295 Linden dollars.   Guys - as well as the men's hair, the girl's hair is worth looking at as lots of the shorter styles work well.  If you mind wearing hair called "Linda" then ignore this advice.

And yes, this was my 201st post. This is a true milestone: a triumph of enthusiasm and raw stupidity over style and finesse.  Thanks for sharing my story arc thus far.

Etam at TMD


Another Men's Department item today - a "scarfed sweater" from Etam, along with more pics of the new ROMEO skin from Reila, and the Ispachi boots that I mentioned before.  I am wearing one of a number of beard options that come with the skin, as tattoo layers.

A quick note after an IM I received from a charming resident on behalf of her boyfriend.  Yes I do occasionally put odd angles in my pictures that may mean I am not showing the clothes in their entirety.  Clearly this annoyed you.  I can only say that you are probably too easily annoyed. But sorry anyway.

Also, in response to your other point, I do try (and I am hardly a Photoshop adept) to do things like tidy up the T-zone on my face, smooth out some edges and gaps etc, and add the odd light effect.  If you want to see exactly what things look like inworld, look at the vendor pic or try a demo.  No I will not refund you the Lindens for what your boyfriend bought.

However if you want to earn 7 Lindens the hard way then do IM me inworld.

Jawdrop. The Lapointe & Bastchild Mesh Tux.


I have always been a massive Lapointe & Bastchild fan. Even before they started on mesh clothing, there was something about the jackets in particular that I loved.  (L&B posts from Chic Style Guide/KeiraSeerose.com here and here.  And various times on this blog obviously)

Obviously I NEVER EVER use hyperbole. Ever.  But this really has to be the most gorgeous formal suit on the grid right now.  Some key features as follows:

- It's mesh and HUD driven to customize texture and colours for the different elements
- Once you have a Tux itself, you can buy specific add-ons to the HUD for other options: brocade and silk waistcoat, silk tie/handkerchief mods etc.  I just bought 3 Tuxedo packs which was probably dumb but once you are wearing one, you can just switch HUDs to customize
- You can wear pants and the "jacket/shirt/tie/handerchief" combo separately if you want
- It has cufflinks (which I don't think are customisable but are something I can see happening at some point maybe!)
- It can be a proper tux (as I show here) or you can make it plain without the edge piping
- The waistcoat pattern is close to identical to the one on my RL tux. i.e. their sartorial style knows no equal

For lots more information on these Tuxedos and HUD addons, take a look at the L&B blog OR just go and buy one. (Lazy Marketplace link here)


I am also wearing hair from Amacci, mesh boots from Ispachi and the new Romeo skin from Reila.  I will show these all properly again as they deserve more prominence.  Have I mentioned that I really like this tux?

So if you haven’t gone by the F R O S T Fair, you need to get down there IMMEDIATELY. One, because today’s the last day. Two, and more importantly, there’s so much dope shit down there. Don’t be the only person without the latest winter threads and accessories. I know it’s Christmas time, I know the kids are whining and crying over EVERY toy they see a commercial for, but screw em. Upload some Lindens, get down to the F R O S T Fair and spend spend SPEND!

Doing things (more) justice

I never really blogged this awesome jacket properly before. It was a "salivating throw an outfit together" kind of thing, to the extent that I didn't even properly resize the elements of the jacket. Which I now have I think. My love for Mr Poet only diminishes because they don't release often enough for my insatiable thirst.


I wasn't sure I could make the jeans work, but I liked the pattern so much I had do do it.  They are a mesh release from Reila Skins and come in 8 funky patterns.


No random comments to add, except that I closed the competition late (yeah, I forgot about it) and counting up the entries I have sent the prize (512L) and some Spare Arcade Gatcha goodness to the winner, Pennyspender Resident.

More from FAIR


Got to say that I loved this sim, Babbage Canals, it's cyperpunk-themed and full of great things to look at.  When I arrived the stream was playing a lounge version of Duran Duran's Hungry Like the Wolf (Dinah Eastwood cover), which made me chuckle.

Some more FAIR items here - mesh from CheerNo and Mijn Boutique (and that skin again, which look very different on Cad's gawky sticky out ears shape, but I love it).


Also a new release from Reila's clothing line: stripy mesh espadrilles in lots of different colour options.

Wading through treacle

Sometimes life is like wading through treacle: really unlikely, extremely sticky and something that would be hard to explain to an insurance company if one needs to charge back a chiropodist visit.  I do enjoy these little discussions we have.  I mean they are a bit one-sided, you know.  I worry about you a little. I hope that you are getting something out of it too and don't feel you have to agree with everything I say.
Original Large colour version here
I'm wearing a new mesh release top from Reila skins that comes in a load of colours, big fan of the weave on these.  The skin is from Filthy and is the group gift for November - there's also a guy's shape in the pack that's kinda cute.  Sad that I just realised that Kookie is no longer open. Nice boots imo.
