Nouveau chez / new at: “Dahlinks”, “JCS”, & “Sf Designs”

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Costume, Special Event | Thursday, July 10th, 2008

Just after the “Toltek” (shown here), Eponymous Trenchmouth created on the same base “Sebastian,” with a totally different flair, with laces, but still with medium heels. I wondered how the hell I could find something to fit these dress shoes, as, in my humble opinion, they were difficult to match with contemporary stuff. Fortunately, after Rfyre who created an outfit to complete the “Toltek,” Swaffette Firefly (SFDesign) found on her last release an historical costume which fits perfectly the Sebastian in red!

“Sebastian” shoes are offered in many colors (coal, mustard, midnight, chalk, olive and red). In each color pack you will get three versions to match your avatar size. Note that the shoes, as it has become very usual now, are designed to adjust on your feet set to zero. The texturing is as good as usual at JCS, and the quality of the design is totally astonishing. You don’t only wear pixel shoes for your avatar when you wear JCS shoes, but also some of the best built and textured items an SL artist can produce… I just can’t wait for the next release, hoping a style which will better fit usual clothing! ;-)

“Isambard” costume from SF design is offered in a complete pack offering many outfits in one. You will find in the f-pack: a pair of pants, a coat with prim lower part (in three pre-sized versions, moddable), a vest, a shirt, everything on many layers, sculpty cuffs for the shirt, sculpty collar (in two sizes), a prim tie, a prim shirt frill and a combo tie+frill. I’m showing below two of the looks you can get. Everything is copy and modify, so you are sure everything will fit your avatar perfectly.

I’m always happy to discover a new range of jewelry for men. Alexandra Nichols just released some pieces for men a few days ago: a monocle (shown) in a steampunk spirit, a bracelet (you will discover it on slmen very soon, resizable by menu), and three rings with diamonds, maybe a bit show off but (thanks god) without bling script inside. I’m showing today the “Eternity male dress Ring” from Dahlinks in “gold and diamond,” but you might prefer the very masculine “titanium and black diamond” or the “silver and diamond.” Each of them comes in three sizes able to fit any avatar. Note that Alexandra Nichols will be more than happy to modify any Dahlinks items for you if your avatar is especially big or small!

I can’t finish this post without talking to you of the customer service offered by the featured designers: it’s just top notch, period. Now that customer service seems to be becoming an option for some designers, considering the low price in RL money of their stuff - such an argument, frankly! :-( - it’s comforting to do business with such customer conscious sweet people!

  1. LOL I love the look Ben. It’s almost reminiscent of Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka.

  5. You look as amazing as ever Ben. And I am honoured that you have chosen to review the new Dahlinks men’s jewelry. And such a wonderful review as well. As for customer service… well without customers it would just be playing with prims :) It is only when people want to discuss you designs that you know if you are getting it right or wrong! Thakns again for the review.
