Richmond (Part 3)

This concludes my series with a few more random shots inside the Port Richmond skybox from [Deco] on sale at Mens Dept (see Pt. 1 and Pt.2). After the late night shown in the previous post, the morning was a bit bleary, but nothing that cake & presents couldn't fix...

The fashion here is a mix of Mens Dept, some hunt items and two nice group gifts from +HuHu+ (a relatively new store with some cool designs - check it out). For women, English Muffin has an excellent little sweater dress with boots gift that includes six skins. While this is meant as a group gift (and the group has a 100L fee), it is currently set to free (in the Teddy bear under the tree), so don't hesitate. Update: now 75l for non group members.

The [Deco] build is another great offering in a series that have been sold at Men Dept. It features an alcove fireplace, skylights and an open upper level. Overall it has a cool loft feel with plenty of light (see final pic below).

Richmond (Part. 2)

Another round in the Richmond skybox from [Deco] available at Mens Dept this month (see part. 1 here), this time featuring an excellent new pool table from End of Daze among other things. And since billiards are best played à deux, some charming company was clearly in order. Of course, after breaking in the table, the evening progressed to other games...

Note that the female fashions are partly from the Golden Apple Hunt, which is a nice little hunt on the NYC sim with 12 pretty amazing gifts at a small price (ends Dec 24). Since this is a long post (after a long evening), I'll save some general views of the build/decor for a final wrap-up.

Richmond

Mens Dept started its December round last week and as usual there are tons of great things both for your avi and home. I especially like the Nordic Sweaters from bleak, but the furniture is also outstanding, particularly the Nippon desk set and matching shelf from Kusshon, which includes some cool associated decor items.

The Frost shopping event also started today. American Bazaar is participating with some very nice new sweaters at a very low price. Go check it out...apparently there are some excellent deals to be had there.   

The sexy avi I'm showing here is a new release skin from (Red)Sand on a shape from Shape it up! (plus hair from Ink).

Finally, the build I'm using is the latest Mens Dept skybox from [Deco]. I'll have more shots of the build in a later post.

Monochrome

I always think about color when I plan my blog posts, which is why I was looking forward to the latest hunt from Monochrome Hunts. Silver Lining is the second in a series of color-themed hunts - this time the theme is silver - and there is a nice range of items to be had (I'm featuring the furniture from Pestique, Circa & Estatica). The gifts cost 5L, but are worth far more than that - check their blog for photos of most of the gifts.

Today is also the last day I think for the Black Event on the Wash Sim, where I picked up some excellent textures from Timeless Textures and Far Concepts for only 10l that fit well with the theme of the post.

Update Dec 1: Wash Sale still going on. Not sure when it ends.

Air

Dirty Little Secret has an excellent gift in the Something Old, Something New Hunt: a fully furnished, multi-level build called Air. Like its name, the house emphasizes the flow of light and air, with the use of skylight ceilings, glass walls, exterior staircases, multiple patio areas and draped fabrics. Air also features a water surround with trees, built-in wall storage in the bedroom/bathroom and the furniture is available as separates, so you can keep what you want (or use it in other builds). I've added some pieces from End of Daze that work well in the space. 

Tash Porthos of Dirty Little Secret is also celebrating the anniversary of her store with a ton of group gifts and the DLS group is free to join until the end of the month. Join her group for her latest Mesh gifts (and stay in it because Tash is always generous).

Some of the clothing here is from the November Mens Dept (ends Dec 1), including a new release blazer from American Bazaar available with different tee combinations. Finally, the skin/shape I've used here is a new group gift from Aeva/Heartsick.

Baffled Pt.2

Here are a few more pics with the build I used in my last post from Baffle (see Pt. 1 here). The store is now closed, but I hope some of you got to check it out and found some nice things at the closing sale.

I've used quite a lot of decor items in this post, some from the Antique Grid Show Hunt (see my previous post for more) - an easy hunt to do with some very nice gifts. I also want to thank Plato Novo of %Percent for lending me her newish enamel cabinets (the set has been released over the last few months). These would undoubtedly look great in lots of builds, both retro and modern.

Baffled

Baffle is a great shop that is unfortunately closing in world and until November 11 everything is on sale for 55l. You can find an eclectic mix of pose props, decor and other items there, but the builds are truly special (see my Secret Garden post for another Baffle build I recently blogged).

Each design is totally unique and range from a domed floating home in the middle of the ocean, to a winter igloo complete with Polar bear or a creepy cottage with graveyard and hidden slaughter chamber. After rezzing them on the demo platform, I couldn't resist buying them all.

I've done some fashion shots below using Baffle's Le Petit Reve skybox from the sale, which is a fun approximation of a slightly grungy Paris apartment with some great texturing. See my next post for more shots of the build.

Also the November Mens Dept round has started with some cool items (including great Mesh pants from Credo and gO this round). Don't forget to check it out.

Edit Nov 15: Baffle is now closed so I have pulled the links.

Warehousing

This is one of my "it's the end of the month and you've got a day to get some good stuff" posts. The October Mens Dept round ends tomorrow I believe, as do a bunch of October Hunts. Like every month there are some good deals to be had there so stop by if you can.

Meanwhile, I've got my private stock of candy and have barricaded myself in a deserted warehouse where no trick-or-treaters can get to me. Best wishes to all the ghouls and goblins out there.

Update Nov 1: Mens Dept collection now removed. Check back on the 5th for the November round.

Outtakes

Here are a few scenes inspired by the Cinema event that runs through Oct. 31. If you haven't been you must go check it out. The event takes place in a giant Multiplex replica with movie clips playing in various themed areas (such as Sci Fi, Adult films, Action/Adventure, etc). It is really quite fun and there is some great shopping as well, featuring many of SL's best creators.

Some odds and ends I wanted to blog all month and just didn't have the time. Note the nice skin from Egoisme that you can get at Menstuff Lounge (50l joiner fee though). This month's Mens Dept also ends Monday. Go check it out before the next collection rolls in.
