The styling is good and the prim pieces fit even my unusual shape, which is always a relief. But it is particularly the richness of the colours that makes this shirt so special to me. It’s called gold, but the rich earthy browns and soaring sky blue highlights are spectacular.
Kaine is also available with other designs, ranging from innocuous broad appeal like the deep dark violet Kaine Celt, or nearly oriental flower “Kaine Blood” in dark maroon and black, to the manga-drawn Kaine Guns and Lovecraft-esque Kaine Mech. Read the rest of this entry »
Iâ€™m fairly certain Iâ€™ve said here before that I could wear clothing by risey Arai exclusively for the rest of my second life, and be perfectly happy. riseyâ€™s designs for :sey are so realistic, accomplished and comfortable-looking that thereâ€™s something not just to admire but to love in every one. Iâ€™ve featured my share (or more) of his creations here in the past, including some that are all of the above and sexy as well. This time out, Iâ€™ve got not just one but (count â€˜em!) five shirts, jackets and hoodies, each of which is all but impossible to resist. This may seem like overkill, but I prefer to consider it abundance. If itâ€™s excessive, itâ€™s a glorious excess. Read the rest of this entry »
Are you cheap? Â I am, and I know you are too. Â Check out the Jaunty Mag site for information on the L$49 Sale for Dudes, running June 20 – 26. Â Nearly 30 participating designers–and counting!
One of the many things I like about SL is the opportunity it provides to explore, albeit virtually and to a necessarily limited extent, aspects of cultures other than one’s own. Like me, you probably have several favorite places to visit in SL, and I’m willing to bet that at least some of them don’t look like your RL neighborhood. Â Perhaps you like Paris in springtime, Barcelona in the fall, or the dark side of the Moon. Â A recent series of more-or-less random TP hops brought me to a fairly impressive replica of the Taj Mahal, and I was inspired to outfit my avatar appropriately for a return visit.

He had traveled much of the world, enough (he was confident) that his opinion could be considered an informed one. Â He had seen much of what there was to be seen, stood and walked in places few men had ventured, and eaten foods that most could not begin to imagine. Â He had visited places beautiful and forbidding, civilized and savage, welcoming and hostile. Â It was difficult if not all but impossible to surprise him. Â Imagine, then, his astonishment when he stepped off the boat at Adelaide, onto the dock, and into Paradise. Read the rest of this entry »
here are new sculpted-prim shoes at Guu Nishi‘s House of Curios Industries (HOC) and they are both stunning and inexpensive. We’ve featured HOC running shoes before: Rhys Ackmann, a guest consultant, loved his Bolts; Ryan wore some chucks as part of a rock-a-billy outfit and once called HOC‘s Skoochers “The best $10 shoes I’ve ever seen.” The new extended shoe selection at HOC offers phenomenal value for money and their flexibility makes them the new “Go To” shoes.
The newest pair in the HOC range are the Easy Striders, these comfortable slip-ons come with textures serious enough for business and others that are casual enough to wear with shorts. Many HOC shoes have tags with the company initials; on the Easy Striders, this is a little metal piece on the piping around the top of the shoe. Click the shoes to be presented with a blue dialog box to change texture. There are 10 texture possibilities in all, although the last 5 are only unlocked to HOC group members (you’ll need to have membership activated when you put on the shoe to enable the extra textures). All this for L$75! Copy and Modify are allowed; no Transfer. Also in the folder is a version of the shoes for Viewer 2. From what I’ve heard on the forums, I hope to never see that particular version in person. Read the rest of this entry »
