One Step Closer To The Edge

The September collection of the Mens Department is under way, and what a great collection it is!  Here are a few highlights:

An amazing steal of a deal 50L priced hair from Taketomi.  Every single color you can imagine and yeah 50L per pack.  The Razor boots I am wearing come with a killer hud with tons of color choices from the boot itself, the toe top and the laces.  I of course went with red and steel toe.

I’m never taking off these brilliant shorts from Barmaley, not just because they have a great fit and so much detail, but the suspenders were a must!  If you know anything about me you are well aware I collect bowties in real life and SecondLife.  This mechanics bowtie belt from Remarkable Oblivion is out of control!  Very ingenious.

I don’t normally like to wear tattoos, but the Ner .Ink loyal truth tattoo is really detailed and I simply couldn’t resist the wings.  My facial hair is from [K]lean Body Shop by Wavie Haller the amazing creator of Sacred Skins and Valiant & Co.

The Mens Department is open, so head on over and grab some great gear.

TMD January: Bulls-eye

After a rough week, I was due for some R&R.  I had fun lounging about and tossing some darts with my trusty sidekick Tiger!

These great items are all from the January round of The Men’s Department.  I think the theme is relaxation, at least that’s how it felt to me and we could all use some of that.  I hope your first weeks of 2013 are proving to be great!

Happy Holidays From The Raynier’s!

Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays

This holiday season has been filled with tremendous amounts of beautiful and fun festive items for all of us to enhance our virtual worlds with.  By far my favorite is this brilliant collaboration from PILOT creator Kaz Nayar and EXPOSEUR creator Rubystarlight Writer!

Full of couples poses, including a girl/girl and a group, it is like a holiday party in this exquisite original mesh snow globe.  Picture perfect for your holiday greeting cards, you can grab your own at either PILOT’s main-store or EXPOSEUR’s main-store, how convenient!

I stole Mrs. Raynier away from studying for a little bit to do our Christmas photos.  We did not have time to show you the rest of the poses, the girlfriends and group, but maybe if we get a chance tomorrow we can do a part deux of this beautiful creation.

From our entwined hearts to yours, we wish each and every one of you the most joyous, resplendent  wonder filled holiday season and the best possible New Year to come.  May it bring you every dream in your heart, love, happiness and a wealth of prosperity, but most of all, great health to enjoy it all!

Mrs. Raynier and I have been feeling under the weather.  My appetite has been little to nil but Gabriella has been craving chocolate like crazy!  Why she wants Cheetos with it is beyond me.  I could not get another slice of cake fast enough for her this morning.  She even ate mine!

We set up this new set from Sway Dench yesterday and it is just the perfect set for our house.  Though we are still in the moving in stages, it’s at the final touches stage which means we are almost done!  Enjoy your weekend and remember to do something fun.

The Mens Dept-August: I Promise You I Will

August 2012 has been the busiest month of my SecondLife!  How many events do we have going right now and more to come when the 8th rolls around.  The Mens Dept August collection is just superb.  This is still my favorite event as it offers a little bit of everything for the men yet versatile enough to have many unisex items for everyone to enjoy.

One creator that I discovered about a month ago has really impressed me from day one.  Tegan Sara of floorplan creates the type of home decor and furnishings that I just adore.  From fun colored dressers to catchy little wall message boards, I have had a great time decorating with floorplan items.  You can get an amazing steal of a deal at The Mens Dept this month from floorplan, and Tegan just added an additional color set.

I am very fond of Cracked Mirror’s mens line.  I made sure my shy genes were stuck in a vault so I could rave to her about the shirt and shorts she has out at The Mens Dept this round.  I love a short sleeved shirt, and one made of mesh, with proper rolled sleeves that do not bulk into your body or leave gaps of space, and a tie to boot, yeah Cracked you rocked this shirt hard lady and I’m gonna wear them till they have holes in them!

I coupled my ensemble with man items from FaMESHed another amazing event that I never miss.  I hope you are enjoying the amazing packed full of events month of August, stay tuned for more items from the grids fabulous event organizers and creators.

Please note that The Mens Dept moved next to the space they had in July.  You can follow my links to the new location!
