EPIA released this highly detailed combat uniform aptly named the Versatile Combat Uniform, which is script controlled for texture change and features rolled up sleeves, hood up and more.  The textures come in different colors but even better, different pattern styles.  Built in boots for a flawless fit, this is an awesome uniform to have in your SLife.

Labyrinth Starchild of Labyrinth skins has released a line of mens mesh heads for his skinline.  Perfectly matched to his skins, the heads are HUD controlled with options such as: color change (blond, brown, black) for brows, hairbase and facial hair.  The head itself if photo-realistic and pre-packed with tons of facial hair options.  You need to read the instructions at the purchase terminal carefully as you are not only selecting which head you want but you need to buy the tone of skin HUD to go with it.  All demos are available and I suggest you demo them all to find the right one for you.

Peaceful Easy Feeling

We are past the midway point of the month of September and the amazing items keep coming!  Autumn is a time of calming down from Summer, making way to prepare for Wintertime.  It is my favorite season, the cool weather is a welcomed reprieve from the heat.  The rustle of leaves, a nice warm tea, and sitting on the porch at home is a memory I have from my childhood that will never fade.

The beautifully crafted rocking chairs below are from What Next and remind me of the rocking chairs mon Papa and mon Mama had on our back porch since I was born.  I had my own, a little version of the cherrywood of their larger chairs and we sat outside talking and enjoying the wonders of life and the simplicity of a lovely Autumn afternoon.

The chairs are available for Fifty Linden Friday, come snatch them up for some memories of your own.  The rest of the decor and house are from other events this month, check out the credits for more information.

We’ll Ride On Bicycles

The Autumn season has brought about so many events, I can’t keep up!  What a grand adventure it has been through, learning of new events, new designers, seeing amazing creations from the designers we love, and creators coming back from hiatus to give us new things to enjoy.

It certainly has been a busy month, and the reprieve into my imagination has been a welcome one to de-stress and keep connected to my inner child.

Many times I have an idea for a photo and end up going a different route, or I struggled to get it just how I envision it, however the one below came to me and worked out just how I planned.  It started with the search for a rainbow pwnie named Dash.  It is no secret I seek out all rainbow things for my beloved Gabriella.  If it is rainbow, I am likely going to try to get it, buy it, empty my pockets of all coinage to get it to give to her.  Such was the case with this round of the Arcade and the lovely whimsical pwnies from silentsparrow.

Once Dash was achieved, I had quite a few of his friends, and they decided I needed to be taken on an adventure with other companions.  That journey had a soundtrack which led off with one of my favorite songs that always makes me think of my better half.  (I have linked the song below in case you are curious)

“We’ll sleep on roof tops 
We’ll ride on bicycles 
Baby, we’ll get married 
Don’t you want to, sweetie?”

Designers United opened at midnight last night and will run until October 4th.  The theme is Surrealism, and wow did the designers do a great job of it!  My hair is from INK and I am loving the style, it was perfect for my adventure.

My brilliantly created boots are from Valiant which is one of the first shops I used to frequent when I first began my adventures in SecondLife.  When designer Wavie Haller began creating new mesh items for the Valiant & Co. brand I was ecstatic!  The boots are brilliant, with a massive texture HUD that gives you limitless possibilities.  You can grab these at the Liaison Collaborative now, as well as the skin I am wearing from his skin line [K]lean.  This is Adrian and he is a bit more mature than the prior Tyler release, with lovely tonality and exceptional quality.  I had not taken Tyler off since getting it, but Adrian is even more perfect for my permanent look.

I hope you are enjoying this event filled month and were able to find all those rares and wonders that make your SLife even more fun.

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!

Playground Love

The amazing creative force behind What Next has just released this funtastic Playground Roundabout.  I spent a great deal of time on a roundabout as a kid, and later even into high school on cool Summer nights after ice blocking.  Oddly enough it always resulted in the same outcome, I spun myself until I nearly puked and then stumbled around as I laughed at my equilibriums inability to keep up with me spinning my body into chaos.

This great playground roundabout goes great with the What Next Adventure Playground Swingset.  I personally am very excited to have another item to join this great swingset for mon ciel Gabriella and I are planning to have a little one and I’m quite enjoying the preparations!

Check out this great video created by designer Winter Thorn showing the Playground Roundabout in action!
