Wizarding Faire – FATEplay

October 6th, prepare to embark on a roleplay journey of magic and mischief!  Wizarding Faire, brought to you by Mischief Managed Roleplay, from the 6th of October running through the 20th.  The list of designers is spectacular, and if you have any knowledge of the sim itself you know it is bound to be wonderous.  The already grand sim is gained a new addition,  Diagon Alley which is where the Wizarding Faire will be held.  Magical needs will be fulfilled and you may just find that rare artifact that you have been seeking.

I am geared up for my roleplay magical adventure in new FATEplay, available for Wizarding Faire.  This divinely fluid outfit comes in all your favorite house colors and the main outfit itself in gray and black.  The tie can be worn smart or loose and you can go with or without cloak.  Additionally there are beautifully detailed house colored scarves for those chillier days.  Here’s an extra perk in this Donald set – wand included! And not just any prop wand, no it has the Aguamenti spell built in as well as the pose!  We wouldn’t expect anything but brilliance from Damien Fate, and he certainly worked his magic on this set.

Past Perfect

Intrigue Co. has just released a really fun blast from the past pretty darn hilariously awesome new addition; Pixel pets!  Little computerized, yes functional pocket pals to wear and enjoy!  Talk about amazing right?!  They will be available for this June round of collabor88!

It made me think of toys of the past, when times were simpler and I had dreams of owning a ranch, raising cattle and growing all the things.  I went to this great new sim to me, GOSH! and reminisced about those times in my childhood.  I even encountered a friendly horse that would not get out of my shot, at one time he was practically eating my hair.  It was quite humorous!

Sometimes its good to get introspective and get your nostalgia on.  I encourage you to do the same, maybe pick up one of these adorable Intrigue Co. Pixel Pets, they come in wolf, meow and hiss.  Collect all three!

I am wearing a refresh of Mathieu from Belleza, available for Belleza Best Buys.  from June 7th 0:00  up to June 9th 23:59!

Summertime is upon us, and many designers in SecondLife are in the fun and sun mood!  New releases from FATEwear and ColdLogic will have you in a plethora of styles for the beach or the pool parties that are surely to abound.

FATEwear just released six different style swim trunks and briefs along with a ton of beach towels to wear with them.  As usual, Damien Fate offers a wide array of colors and designs, conveniently located in his spiffy HUD which makes buying that FATEpack (fatpack) so appealing.  All those colours at your fingertips!  Even if you are not much for buying fatpacks, the single colours are just gorgeous and sure to please.  You can see them all on the official FATEwear blog.

ColdLogic has also released some beautiful bikinis for the ladies, and they are sure to please both wearer and admirer alike!  I really love that FATEwear and ColdLogic will release items on the same day, it makes shopping for Mrs. Raynier a great deal of fun, and as you can see below, we enjoyed our new threads quite a bit.

In addition, Apple Fall just released a gorgeous mesh pool that had to placed at Chateau Raynier.  We have a very forestry type sim, and it fit just great in the spacious back yard area.  There are three options for the water, which I really thought was a nice consideration to the buyer.

What Next has tons and I do mean tons of beach and summer fun items.  From the beach towels and parasols to adorable cafe sets, we are really spoiled in our recreational areas with these funtastic creations!  The Garden Cafe Table & Chairs are for the RFL Home & Garden Expo –  7 sets will be exclusive to the Expo while it’s open. The blue and green versions are 100% donation items for RFL.   You can get all the information on RFL Home & Garden Expo at the official blog.

I hope your week is going well and that you get some time for fun in the sun to splash it up!

Dress To Impress

Dress to impress, that is what I was always told by my parents in regards to many situations: dates, interviews, social events, the theater, opera, etc.  But most of all be comfortable in your own skin.  I love to dress in vests and bowties, they snazz up a simple white dress shirt and can be worn with jeans or slacks.

Damien Fate has just released the new Edward suit line at FATEwear.  This suit goes far beyond anything else he has released and that is saying a great deal as he strives already to go above and beyond.  The Edward line contains 7 different looks!  You can wear it in a full three piece suit (shirt, tie, waistcoat, jacket) or you can casual it down to the point you only wear the shirt untucked, no tie.  With every combo in between and an exceptional over the shoulder jacket option (including animation) the dapper dresser has only the limitation of his imagination with this new line.

Equally you can buy additional ties and shirts to liven it up and give it that YOU feel.  To see all the suit options, features and goodies, check out the official FATEwear blog.

No matter what your needs are in SL, do yourself a favor and at least own one great suit.  As with real life, owning a black three piece suit can be used for just about anything that arises save for the black tie tuxedo only situation.  I learned long ago that a man that owns a nice suit, knows how to wear it, accessorize it, and liven it up can certainly impress.  A real life tip, learn to tie different tie knots.  Do not rely only on the Windsor knot for your ties!  You can buy books to learn or consult youtube!  My favorite is the Eldredge knot.

The Eldredge Knot

The Eldredge Knot

When I wear this knot on my tie, I always get asked, “Hey, what kind of knot is that?”  It is a great conversation starter and can definitely earn you some respect.  Spice it up with a classy tie pin or clip, but most importantly wear it with pride.  Check out this great tutorial on how to tie the Eldredge knot.  Also check out the Trinity knot, it’s another of my favorites!

A good collection of bowties and ties can certainly change the way your clothing looks, and if you feel as if your closet has gotten drab, try buying a new tie, learning a new knot and putting it with a shirt you haven’t worn in awhile, it’s bound to give it some new life.

A Sharp Dressed Man

My go to tuxedos have always been by Lapointe & Bastchild.  I was even married in one.  Paul Lapointe knows a great tux, with options and unique appeal.  Yesterday he released his classic tuxedo in mesh!  I was overjoyed, and even battling the Hell Flu that won’t go away, I logged in right away to grab mine to try on.

A very awesome surprise is that the tuxedo comes with many options, built into a snazzy hud that makes dressing up extremely simple.  There are three different colors avaiable for purchase.  I am wearing the claret of course as my favorite color is red, but you can get it in slate and gold as well.

This is a must have addition for your wardrobe especially now for the holiday season, you’ll be glad you snatched it up.
