I Bless the Rains Down in Africa

Hi guys! Today we're going on an African safari! I've never been to Africa or a safari in my real life, but I have been to a drive-thru type wildlife park. I know, I know, not the same thing! It was still a fun experience nonetheless. That's one of the great things about Second Life. You can experience things you may not be able to do in your real life, such as going on this safari!

Hmm...Let's see here. I had to do quite a bit of searching to find just the right items to pull this outfit together. I sure am glad I found what I did though, because I feel they make for an excellent safari outfit! The shorts and shirt colors match better than I had anticipated them to. You can buy the shorts in a multi-color bundle from Redgrave, but you can only get the olive color I have used in this outfit though an outfit bundle (link in Style Card). I do need to point out that the shirt does not come with the undershirt - it's a separate item. The undershirt is totally optional. If you want to show some skin, just leave it out.

I ran across some excellent quality items to make for an awesome African savanna backdrop! The grass, trees, lions, and elephants are by ~*Sweet Revolutions*~ and the gazelle is by Harshlands. They look so realistic, I had to double check to make sure the lions weren't going to pounce on me while I had my back turned on them, haha. Please feel free to check out these content creators. Whether you're looking to set up your own African savanna or something else, they have a good variety of items to choose from.

Skater Boy

Hey guys! I decided to hit up the skate park today. If you're a skater in Second Life, you should definitely check out Pu!se. They offer all sorts of skate accessories from clothing to ramps, so if you're looking for new skate gear, head on down! Good stuff!

All of the items in today's outfit include a texture changer for multiple style options. I think this style is great for several different scenarios, but I decided to go with the skater boy look in this instance. What's your approach on this outfit? Let me know in the comments!

A Whole Different Century

Awoken from a deep sleep, I realize that I am not in Kansas anymore. What happened? Is this just a dream or have I really slept into a whole different century?

Hey guys! Here's a new outfit I have put together for ya'll. Although the outfit has nothing to do with Kansas or the future, I think it meshes well with the futuristic backdrop.

This shirt/jacket combination is a new release by Knight Designs. It comes with a texture hud which allows you to change between twelve different textures. There are six solid colors and six striped colors provided in the hud. It also comes in two different styles. One with the shirt and one without the shirt as well as five standard sizes for both styles.

I've decided to pair the jacket with pants from GAS Clothing Company. These pants are a happy medium in my opinion - not too tight and not too baggy. They also come with a texture hud providing you nine colors to choose from. As you can see, I tend to choose items with the texture changer hud. It provides many different styles within the same style of outfit for many occasions.

I went fairly casual on the shoes. I think they work well in this instance, although a more formal pair of shoes could just as well work here too. These shoes are by Meli Imako and are classic Converse style shoes.

To finish this outfit off, I decided to add in this dog tag necklace by Mandala. Provided within this necklace is a resizer script as well as the option to turn on and off full bright textures.

Overall, this outfit would be good for several different styles and occasions if you make use of the texture changer huds provided. Check out the Style Card below for full details on this outfit!

It's So White As Snow

We're deep into the midst of winter here in the northern hemisphere, so today I want to present to you an awesome outfit which is perfect for just that - You know, the time of year where "its so white as snow"!

Here we have a complete outfit by FashionNatic which includes a shirt with jacket, pants, and shoes. Many different color options can be made with this outfit through the use of the provided texture hud. Switch between two different colors for the pants and a plethora of colors for the jacket/shirt combo through the color pallet. The shoes come with a resizer script, which is great for many different foot sizes!

I've decided to pair this outfit with hair from Damselfly. This hair is Brock, a unisex style that I got from the December 2014 KittyCatS Advent Calendar. Unfortunately no texture hud is provided for the beanie, but its still an excellent hairstyle for many different outfits.

For the finishing touch, I decided to throw some glasses by Bad Unicorn into the mix. Now, I'm not one to normally wear glasses, but I think they are an excellent accessory here. They come with a tinted and non tinted option as well as a resizer script, so you've got choices!

All in all, these are excellent, quality items that would be great for many different style options. Links to the stores are in the Style Card!

The Nights That Never Die

A new year, a new blog, and I've got new clothes. Yes, I do believe there are going to be many "nights that never die" this year, but its totally going to be worth it.

I've put together a nice outfit that includes items from several talented creators. Please click the links below each picture for the raw, unedited picture so you can see the true depiction of each item.

This hair/fedora combination is by Damselfly. It conveniently comes packaged with a texture hud to change between different hair and hat colors. The shirt is by GAS, the jeans by Lenox, and the shoes by Kal Rau (unfortunately no longer available), all also paired with a color changer for many color options.

These mesh eyes by Mayfly by far have to be the most realistic eyes I have seen in Second Life. There are many colors to choose from, so I'm sure there's one for you! Get the FREE Mayfly Luminous eye color, London Fog, HERE!

I've provided links to the in world and marketplace stores, as well as the creator's blogs below in the Style Card.

More outfits to come!
