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:

Disgruntled Repairs

FATEplay has a huge release of costumes that are perfect for Halloween and many different roleplay scenarios.  I am sporting the Mechanic which comes with a killer wrench, and hud to use the weapon in a pose which you see in the photo or to strike and animate into a threatening bash of steel.  All the costumes come with a unique weapon, male and female versions of these are available and you can even buy the bundled weapon pack if you just cant get enough tools for your trade.

I am wearing a new skin from eep who you already might be familiar with their amazing hair.  This is the first of their skins, and it is nicely textured, masculine and comes in a variety of tones.  Be sure to check out the demo so you can see more of the skin and determine if its a good fit for your look.

Consignment released an adult version of the Stepside bed which you can get an upgrade of if you bought the PG version already for a discounted price at The Garden.

All Creatures Great And Small

When I was a child mon Mama used to tell me fairy tales that her grandmama told her.  Amazing tales of the Duendes. the Fairies who lived in the home, coming out at night to whisk about and make mischief and beauty.  As the tale went, if you did not do your chores, left dishes out or the laundry undone, they would be disapproving and make mischief, throwing the clothes all over the house and hiding the plates in odd places.   If you continued to be lax in your chores and forgot to leave cream out for them, or some shiny bauble, they would grow angry and destroy the house!

Mon Mama described them so beautifully, how they had resplendent angelic wings and beautiful features, wearing lush gossamer silks that wisped about their tiny bodies and wings in an ethereal display of beauty.

As I grew, I continued to soak up tales of the wee folk, in every culture I could read about.  When Baiastice created amazing fairies for this current round of the Arcade, I had to have them all.  My favorite is the one I hold in my hand in the photograph below, she is Sleepy and so beautifully tranquil, her wings and hair of gold, porcelain skin and silken pale mint dress – she looks just as my mind conjured when mon Mama described the duendes.

I recall asking mon Mama why we could not see the duendes, or only get little glimpses of them, yet never touch them or keep them.  She said that they were not meant to be kept for they were drawn to their freedom, to roam the vast world and that when they chose to stay with us for a while, we were blessed by their presence.  She explained that when they choose to go back to their world, we were sometimes graced with being asked to aid them in their return.  So I set Sleepy free, even as she asked me to let her nap just a little longer, resting in the palm of my hand, so trusting and beautiful.  Perhaps one day she will return to me in my dreams, and fill them with the magic of the duendes.

The Men’s Department September – Let The Music Play

The September collection of the Men’s Department will be available on September 5th, just a few short days away!  With a new build, new logo design by Mikel Monk and a 3D version in world by Isla Gealach, TMD is going strong and the grid is all the better for it.

TMD is still one of my favorite events, because it is not limited to just male fashion, but does indeed get us gents nicely styled up!  Original creations abound and no matter what combination of items are offered, there is surely something you can take with you to enhance your SLife.

This amazing fedora from DECO was screaming my name, my love of hats and especially the fedora style made it a must have.  I really love the weathered band, making this hat say yeah, I’ve been around and seen some things!

The stellar bowling shirts from BlankLine are a must have for any gent, just look at the detail! Tons of colors to choose from, but we all know red is my personal favorite.

Labyrinth has this great skin called Silver, it is a TMD edition with a “Road Beard” which you have to see up close for its artsy detail.  Please try the demo before you buy, that way you can see for yourself if the beard will be your thing.

The boots I am wearing are from ADJUNCT, a favorite designer of mine since my first days here in SecondLife.  The Cactus FLower Boot has a beautiful stitching on the boot tip and the heel is wood just like my good old cowboy boots in real life.  Amazing detail and they go with just about anything.

The tattoo I wear is from a new shop to me called [Ner .Ink] Tattoo Store.  I really love the feather detail on the arms, it makes me think of flight and the freedom of winged beings from birds to angels.

All of this and much more will be available for this newest round of TMD, hope to see you there!

C88 May 2013

The 8th has arrived and a new creatively charged collabor88 has opened!  May is a month that merges from Spring to Summer, warmer weather, and visions of sunny afternoons spent at the beach.  The continually impressive Cory Edo brings to this round a gorgeous beach bungalow and decor.  I am not a beach person but this beautiful bungalow is extremely versatile, sitting on a beach or on a waterfront plateau, you will want to add this to your Second Life

With matching decor, you get a fabulous Summer color palette.  Hanging planters and antique cabinets will fill this bungalow with charm and comfort.  Check out the great life preserver decor, it hides the controls for doors and windows!  For more amazing images of the bungalow, please visit the official Trompe Loeil website.

In this interior shot, I am wearing a few items from The Mens Department May collection.  Belleza has brought a special edition of Jonas to this round of TMD.  Jonas was the first skin I purchased when I joined Second Life  so to see him back in action was a great blast to the past and a reminder of how much I have always liked this skin.  For a mere 150L, I suggest you get on over to TMD and snatch it up!

My retro shirt is from bleak who have quickly become a favorite of mine.  The pattern of this shirt was just too hard to resist and fit perfectly with my nostalgic mood.

Check out my realistic hat from DECO!  I usually do not wear baseball caps in Second Life because I have yet to find one that I like.  I’m very picky about ball caps, they can’t be too high or too big of a brim.  I like a cap that is fitted, snug and soft.  This is just that cap!
