If you’re in the market for clever prim accessories to complete an outfit (or push it over the top), you could do far worse than to check out the creations of Jonny Petrova at his shop, Endless Nameless Designs.Â His overall style seems to be kind of generalized urban gritty punk, but there are some truly beautiful and classy items in the mix too.Â For no particular reason–okay, actually I worked everything around the belt–I’ve chosen to focus on a few of his pieces that fit into a “music” theme.
Jonny’s beautifully detailed Fret Belt (
L$75 L$175), shown at right, comes in four sizes or configurations: male, female, giant and tiny.Â It’s moddable, so you can resize and fit according to your own preferences, but it’s nice to have a choice of starting points–I don’t know about you, but this simplifies my life.Â The main loopÂ of the belt is detailed to resemble a guitar’s fretboard, complete with frets and strings, with the buckleÂ assembly standing in for the guitar’s headstock.Â This is a gorgeous design, perfect for the rock star in your life, and at 222 prims (I think I’ve got that right) it joins the pantheon of ultra-high-primÂ belts in my inventory.
I’m also wearing the Keyed Up BraceletÂ (new, L$50, two sizes included), a clever design that’s whimsical and fun but still a serious piece of jewelry.Â A piano keyboard runs the circle of the bracelet, which actually feels more like a cuff to me.Â It’s edgedÂ with charcoal-grey leather and fastens with a small brass buckle.Â You can also get the matching flexiÂ Keyed Up ScarfÂ (L$100, male and female fittings included) and Keyed Up Belt (L$100, not shown here).
Jonny’s headphones (L$125) are simple Walkman-style phones, very old-school and far from audiophile quality.Â But don’t take this to suggest a lack of detail–they’re carefully constructed, with an eye to realism in their simplicity.Â You get two versions, one to be worn on your head, as shown here, another that fits around your neck.Â Both are touch scripted to play your choice of five music loops, or you can add your own to the mix.Â The included music clips sound amusingly and authentically tinny.
The Turntable Backpack (new) is seemingly perfectly designed for the indulgence of my fetish for fun stuff to wear on my back.Â Like the headphones, its construction is clean and simple, but carefully detailed.Â Shoulder strapsÂ keep it securely anchored across rocky sim border crossings, while the vinyl spins and the tonearm tracks the groove in apparent defiance of gravity.Â Larger and smaller starting sizes are included for your fitting convenience.Â For the truly old-school turntablist, there’s also the wood-and-brass Gramophone Backpack, which features if anything an even higher level of irony.Â The backpacks areL$175 each, or L$300 for both.
