The Arcade Gacha Events – September – What Next Preview!

September arrives in just a few days, and The Arcade turns 1 year old on the 1st!  One year of extraordinary items, a year full of gacha madness that has had us all having a grand time seeking those rares items which often led us to a plethora of curses!  The Arcade Gacha event is one that no matter what you might be expecting, every designer takes our expectations through the roof.

The 1 year birthday round of the Arcade will surely impress, with loads of fun filled and ingenious creations that will fill your inventory with a great deal of fun and great memories.  To get a great glimpse into what you will be trying to pull those gacha machines for, check out the official Arcade flickr with official item advertisement photos as well as blogger sneak peeks.  Get that want list going, it’s almost the 1st!

One great item to get your gacha coins warmed up for are the {what next} Golf Carts.  That’s right, golf carts, oh but not just some ordinary golf carts, no these are of course mesh, packed with animations and it is drivable!  It rides smooth as any purring sports car and has room for your mates!

My favorite of the 12 available golf carts is definitely the ‘moustache’.  It is classy and fun with a touch of masculinity.  Here is the official advert from What Next so you can see all 12 styles available.

The Arcade 1 Year Birthday round begins on September 1st, 2013.  Please visit the official Arcade blog it is chock full of useful information from the awesome countdown to opening day to the wonderful shoppers guide.

Man Space

The Men’s Department this round is a great place to get the guys in your life awesome Valentine’s Day gifts.  You know it can be hard to shop for dudes, especially if they are not very into clothes.  This is an aspect of The Men’s Department that I really like, it’s not all about clothes!  You have a wide array of decor and furnishings for your house.  In this case I made a small man space with all TMD items to give you an idea of the items you can put on your list for that special guy or gal in your life.  Again, another part of the TMD that I love, it’s not just for the dudes!

Isla Gaelach of Cheeky Pea created the amazing MapMe Antigue letters for this round and I gotta tell ya, mesh letters with map roads upon them, badass!  They also come in the non-antique.

floorplan has two items to offer this TMD and one is a must have for all Sci Fi and 80’s fans.  The Flux Capacitor!  It has beautiful detail and it flashes with subtle strobe light.  Also the oh deer wall decor, which I really like, the antlers are just perfect.

Grab a seat in the new Shell chairs from HANDverk, the detail is fabulous.

Not sure what to wear for Valentine’s day, go grab this great shirt/tie/cardigan ensemble from Pumpkin.  Two versions, one with hearts on the shirt and one in plain white.  Go for the hearts, that special someone will love them!

Don’t like to be perfectly shaved, me either, but clean up a bit more for Valentine’s day, especially around the mouth, makes that kiss a helluvalot better!  The jawline beards from bleak are perfect for this and come in dark and light.

Couple the cardigan with this modern looking metallic ring from KOSH, it has a matching necklace too.

Snatch up the new poses from POSEOLOGY, they work fabulously with mesh items!

Enjoy this round of TMD and have a great week!
