This Is Where I Heal My Hurts

The 8th has arrived and you know what that means, Collabor88 is open and in full swing!  The theme this December round is Hibernation.  The items are all very hearth oriented and remind me of the special spots we have in our own homes that we retreat to for solace.

Seven Emporium has the most exquisite retro entertainment items for this round.  From a classic retro television to varying devices to listen to music and a cozy lounge style couch, this is truly a magnificent addition to any home, lounge or club.

Pilot embraced the hibernate theme fully with a cozy area for the creative type, the reader, the artist, to rest upon cozy pillows and an illumination of candles.  This is a great little spot to relax or spend time with a friend or loved one.

All of these amazing items are resting in the equally comfortable and hibernate themed Trilby Dacha by Scarlet Creative.  With two versions, one with snow and one clean, the structure itself is uniquely shaped, roomy interior and beautiful textures, a truly unique abode for your shelter needs.

Find this and much more at the current round of Collabor88, now.

Fuel Your Inner Child

December 1st, The Arcade is open and in full swing!  The chiming and clanging of the machines, the music from the carousel, the smell of cotton candy and confections, and the flashing of colorful lights paint this inner childs dream event.

I hope you were able to save up that gacha money and the machines are generous with their rares.  If you see me kicking a machine, do not fret, it likely isnt being nice and giving me something rainbow!  My inner child has a great time at the Arcade and I hope you do as well, the event takes a great deal of time and the creativity is boundless.  What treasures will you find, what is that one thing on The Arcade Shopping Guide that you must have?

This round my must have was the Love camera you see me wearing in the photos below.  Skillfully crafted from bbqq, it was a must have to capture the precious moments with Gabriella.

To make your Arcade experience more enjoyable, consider wearing a full body invisible alpha and taking off all those huds and gadgets to lessen your own lag.  Be sure to visit the many social networks and sites for the Arcade and above all, enjoy your time at this fun filled event!

Shoetopia – Adjunct

Shoetopia – a veritable shoe heaven, will open its pearly gates to indulge your soles November 15th, 2013.  The sim design indeed is heavenly, a Utopia for shoe lovers.  Spread out in an open layout of two sims, with angelic archways and crystal blue skies, you are among the clouds as you venture through the shoe heaven.

At the heart of the event is SOLES4SOULS, the events charity of choice.  A bit about the charity:

Soles4Souls is a global not-for-profit institution dedicated to fighting the devastating impact and perpetuation of poverty.  The organization advances its anti-poverty mission by collecting new and used shoes and clothes from individuals, schools, faith-based institutions, civic organizations and corporate partners, then distributing those shoes and clothes both via direct donations to people in need and by provisioning qualified micro-enterprise programs designed to create jobs in poor and disadvantaged communities.  Based in Nashville, Tennessee, Soles4Souls is committed to the highest standards of operating and governance, and holds a four-star rating with Charity Navigator.

With the devastating damage in the Philippines and Southeast Asia, each participating designer will be offering up an item that will see 100% of its proceeds go directly to Soles4Souls, which is already hard at work aiding this catastrophic time.

The event is more than just a shopping spree, it is for a cause, and I hope that you will be a part of that.

My shoes are the exclusive item from ADJUNCT.  This highly detailed, exceptional penny loafer comes in three colors and an option for socks.  In addition ADJUNCT creator Josh Latham aka myvegancookbook has created a set of lively colored fun socks for you to add to your closet.

I wore penny loafers all through high school, even put the shiny copper penny in the tongue, so when I saw these I had to have them.  The leather quality is exceptional, just enough shine and a soft feel.  The fit is superb and no adjustments were required, the shoe is fantastic.  Add it to your collection for casual or formal needs.

Heading on over to The Men’s Department, the newest creation from Isla Gealach is a must have.  Cheeky Pea’s Nolan Foosball Table’s are a must have for any recreation room, bar or fun area.  Highly detailed materials enabled mesh, the foosball tables come in two different styles of wood, bare and painted as well as PG and Adult.  The Adult brings a whole new meaning to GOAL!

Also at TMD, MESHWORX has created these spicy pin – up covered Infinity tables and chairs.  Beautifully textured, smooth and minimalist with sexy pin – up girls decorating the surfaces, very unique and without saying a must buy!

Off to Collabor88 you will find the gorgeously spacious Industrial Loft from Barnesworth Anubis.  Barnes never fails to create something spectacular, detailed and unique.  I love the open bay windows that lead to a spacious patio.  The loft is very roomy and was perfect for a recreational room at Chez Raynier.  

FLOORPLAN brings fun to your home decor yet again at Collabor88 with the Eiffel Tower Marquee.  Multi-texture change on touch, beautiful detailing, this was a must have for my place as I am of French decent.  Its rather adorable and I plan to put it in little Raynier’s room when the time comes.

Ring a ding ding, time for doorbells!  Intrigue Company has doorbells for your decor needs this round of Collabor88.  I was a bit stumped at first where to place them, but the fireplace area was just perfect for them to be displayed.  In multiple metals, and three different styles these doorbells have tons of detail packed into them.  Put them at your door or use them in unique ways, they are truly “chiming”!

Additional non-event items can be found in the credits, have a great day!

Steam Cajun and the Squirrel Gadgeteers

The Squirrel Gadgeteer’s worked all day and night, fixing up my gear while I went over the calculations for the time tube.  The future had stolen me away from a time that I did not wish to leave, a time that had her in it.  I had to get back to her, at any cost or die trying.  The tube was risky, but I knew, she was there, waiting and wondering where I had gone to, I could feel the echo of her tears.  I would return to her, and leave this world of steam and metal, for love.Style 411:

Collabor88 November – Trompe Loeil Industrial Living

Collabor88 is packed with high detailed creations that really have to be seen to be fully appreciated.  When I saw the new release from Trompe Loeil, I loved the structures and the idea of a full community built with this set.  When I rezzed it, I was in love and appreciated it far more seeing it live, sitting on the hillside at Chez Raynier where the trees are abundant and the ocean waves crash upward into the rocky cliff face.  The Skarstind Modular Cottage & Patio had found their home.  This is an exclusive Collabor88 item, so be sure you make the time to go check it out and snatch it up for yourself.

Cory Edo has a true gift in creating all the wonders we get to enjoy in our SLives.  The detail in the Industrial Chandelier short circuited my brain, the design is simply awesome.  With subtle lighting, and pipping style frame, this is truly a unique piece to have in your collection.  It comes in multiple lengths for tall ceilings, shorties too!

Add the cozy and truly colorful Industrial Loungers and you have a place to call cozy.  The loungers come in 15 colors, and the full pack is only $L288!  I really love color in my home, and am always thankful for a real true rich blood red.  All this and more, available now @ Collabor88!

The Men’s Department – November

It is November 5th, opening day for The Men’s Department!  The November collection of TMD is amazing, full of home decor, accessories, clothing and more, for gents and the ladies too.  Each round just keeps getting better and TMD is literally packed with wall to wall items at stellar prices.

The jacket and shirt combo I have on is Blankline’s November TMD offering, a nice casual button jacket that comes in brown, black and gray.

The skin I have on is new Clef de Peau – Martin for TMD.  The skin is nicely youthful and comes in a variety of tones with SLink AvEnhance hand and feet applier huds!  That is something that I wish all our amazing skin designers would create and include in their skins for us, matching with this system is just a must.

Over at FAMESHED, Valiant & Co. have released the David Hat & Hair, the first hair from Valiant we have seen so far and it’s a great start to what I hope will be more to come.  The HUD is packed with textures and you can get a variety of hair color tones – please try demos to find which will be right for you.

Also at FAMESHED, MESHWORX launched the Urban Oasis which is a garage included structure that I can’t imagine not having a use for it is so huge and extremely roomy with that brilliant detail all MESHWORX items hold.

New Lapointe & Bastchild shoes were just released, fully mesh and HUD packed with not only leather styles and colors but socks too!  So many choices and a fluid fit, the new shoes from Lapointe & Bastchild really make footwear simple and sleek.

New males poses from oOo Studio were the perfect match for this photo.  The Zachary set is out now!
