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:

Lately I’ve Been Losing Sleep

Tableau Vivant just released a new hairstyle and beard for the Cosmetic Fair – Fall Edition.  The Talamasca Hair and mesh facial hair are available at Cosmetic Fair from October 15th thru the 30th.

Also at the event, the Skinnery has these great eyes in a variety of colors.  I have teal eyes, which are a shade not easily found, so when I find something close, usually aqua or a variant I get very excited.   The bruising and cuts on my face are from Lovely Disarray, also available at the event and come in a few different ways to wear – from bloody to a full face of ouch.

My nails are for the SLink hands and come from Action, also at the Cosmetic Fair.  I really like the realism of this nail set, it has less white on the nail tip and more of a roughness to it.

Also running now, The Body Modification Expo from 10th October to November 3rd, with 100 stores and tons of enhancements its a huge event to check out.  Lapointe & Bastchild have this great unisex S’wear “Lover’s” necklace.  The necklace has tons of options, from metals to the gems, but whats amazing about it is the ability to put whatever initials you want on the rings.  Right now it is half price at the expo, but after it will be full price again.

The great Fishing Cabin is a new release from Seven Emporium, available now at the The Garden.  It is a wonderful structure with a great deal of natural light source and versatility.

Vagabond

Collabor88 is in full swing and packed with tons of items.  I am always so impressed by the creations the talented designers bring to the Collabor88 table.

One such beautiful creation is from Scarlet Apple, a stunning Remedy Caravan, with extraordinary wrought iron and weathered wood.  The caravan is not limited to just decor, the sides open up and allow for full space and breezy nights.  There is something magical and timeless about this caravan and I appreciate it dearly for it appeals to my vagabond heart.

To see all the items offered this October round, check out the full Collabor88 Catalog.

Tableau Vivant keeps creating wonderfully versatile hairstyles that really push for more than just the typical male short cut.  I love this shag length style for Collabor88, Kawashima, it has a curly quality and you don’t get to see that too often.

Valiant & Co. continues to gear up the gents and ladies with shoes that make your feet go “ah yeah that’s the stuff.”  Also available at Collabor88 for a sweet price in varying colors to make your feet happy.

New FATEwear release this week that was so perfect for the image I wanted to create with this beautiful caravan, I couldn’t have asked for anything more.  This vest shirt combo is smashing, giving a varying time frame feel, 60s to the present, absolutely brilliant.

The Wicked Peach is kickin’ out Slink enhancement nails that have a great versatility for guys and gals.

‘Cause They Say Home Is Where Your Heart Is Set In Stone

‘Cause they say home is where your heart is set in stone
Is where you go when you’re alone
Is where you go to rest your bones
It’s not just where you lay your head
It’s not just where you make your bed
As long as we’re together, does it matter where we go?

Round My Hometown

My first memory of riding in a streetcar was when I was about five years old.  The green line from St. Charles into the French Quarter was my very first journey.  I recall we went to eat at the Camellia Grill on S Carrollton Ave of the River Bend area of New Orleans – a true staple that I miss greatly, now residing in Los Angeles.  I ordered the bananas foster pancakes, my favorite still to this day.  Once we had eaten, we boarded the streetcar and I recall finding the machine quite intriguing, for it looked like a train car and I kept referring to the driver as the conductor.

When I saw this great streetcar perusing flickr, I had to go see it for myself and it certainly brought back that memory of my first streetcar ride.  I miss the little things like this from my hometown, and though they are restructuring to have streetcars in Los Angeles again, it is just not the same as taking that journey down the hundred oak covered avenues of New Orleans.  If you ever get the chance, I encourage you to ride one.

49L Sale For Dudes is underway and will last until September 26th.  You can see all the offerings on SeraphimSL as well as the official 49L Sale For Dudes website.
