pocketed ☜

Several fashion stores have come out in recent times with ‘hands in the pockets” coats & jackets which look quite kewl when outside walking around amongst the snow & ice .  This is all possible because of the mesh Alpha Layer being able to make your arms & hands invisible; but even tho your limbs have disappeared they are actually still there; so be careful when your close to others lol !!!

GizzA Creations is the latest to cash in on the trend and have introduced a big range of Pierre trenchcoats V2 (with shirt inclusive).   You are warned that the shirt is tailored to fit only the Pierre buttoned jeans (which are on the racks next to the coats).   There’s texture changer hud for shirt color x12.   You can also buy the shirts as a seperate item.

season past ☼░▒▅ ☁

Not sure exactly what’s going on at the +grasp+ casual wears store but iv’e just discovered that the coat I bought which was being promoted shop front as “NEW” was first featured in the store Blog in Nov 23, 2013 !! that’s a whole year ago!!! .   Anyways thems the breaks and the garment is still a fine item to wear (it does also come with fur included for the hood but only brown color).   Kinda looks like this store has gone into some sort of vacuum since the beginning of the year.

Update info:  I sent a notecard to the store contact given and this is the reply I received “Hello I’m afraid that I’m no longer grasp manager. The owner of grasp has been ill for long time and I think there’s no plan to make new item nor log in SL.”   ….. So sad to hear this news.

evolve ∞Ω∞

Sometimes (umm ok rarely lol) I get a picture in my mind how I wanna dress;  hair dreadlocks seem to be having a resurgence in SL at the mo; the style I chose was created by Aibeat (who specializes in styling dreads) and the one I am wearing is perfect, realistically styled and textured.

So the dreads gave me the idea of clothes I should wear;  a real ‘mish mash’ with ordinary prims (the pants) to the brand new mesh jeans jacket wrapped around my waist !  Lots of fun fitting it all together and yeah the SLink hands allowed me to wear juss one glove which was kewl too.

nitroglobus இ

If your interested in the Arts you might be interested in the Nitroglobus Gallery which is privately owned and run.  Exhibits of established as well as from talented starting artists are displayed in a huge Gallery.  The current exhibition showing is  ‘Nightmare’ by HeLa Lennie.  Just another amazing side of the Second Life world.

Now, to the fashion side I picked out this “Marvin” mesh outfit from Wicca’s Wardrobe Store. Wicca Merlin the owner is quite a talented lady, has been in SL since 2007; she is an experienced professional runway and print model and boasts being able to feature different styles to match any trend and fashion, whether it’s classic, elegant, avantgarde, burlesque or casual!
.
So with all that background I felt I was buying with some confidence.  I must admit I nearly trashed the outfit after putting it on as it seemed to lack any life but after trying different Windlight settings I was happy seeing a perfect smooth svelte style look.  The outfit comes with a HUD to change color of the jacket & pants (which are seperate items).  Wicca has provided two sets of clothes, one as the outfit version and the other for standalone which guess gives you better fit options.  Try the DEMO first anyways !

jinbei 甚平

While I was shopping at the Silvery K store I discovered a kewl Jinbei outfit to wear around the house.  

What’s a Jinbei ? its a kind of traditional Japanese clothing worn by men, women, boys, girls, and even babies.  Jinbei sets consist of a top and matching shorts, although some have long pants and some come with both short and long pants.  Traditional jinbei are made from hemp or cotton and are dyed a uniform color, often indigo, blue or green (though modern jinbei frequently have prints ranging from simple textures or lines to complicated and colorful floral patterns).
.
Note, this is a single mesh item available in 3 sizes so best to check the demo first !  A texture change HUD is included for the shirt, pants & underpant. Super realistic look and juss love the stitching on the split arms !

molly’s place \,,/(^_^)\,,/

Here’s a nice story from Molly Heron the owner of this Skybox with garage i’m visiting, she says … “SL has given me many great things.    It has been thru riding motorcycles in SL and making great friends that do the same, that I have gone out and learned to ride in RL.    As a way of giving back, I offer to aspiring or custom bike builders a place to build”  well, that’s sure playing it forward.    Sooo if your interested in her offer hit her up for a Group Tag !

Amazingly, as I find this place also amazingly I find a store thats been in existence since 2008 called Silvery K !! and it has just released its latest clothing creation :  a very very kewl Men’s Coverall outfit.    You wear it as one single mesh item (includes the shoes and belt) and it is fitmesh (one size only)  Try the demo version on first. There’s 5 colors to choose from.  Wow! I luv it !!
