Nouveau chez / New at “Casa del Shai”, “Guillaume pour Homme”, & “Philotic Energy”

• Alpine man is one of the outfits in the new Casa del Shai release!

Each outfit pack includes: a white mandarin shirt on the undershirt layer, a sweater on the shirt layer, a vest on the jacket layer, a combo vest/sweater on the jacket layer, and a pair of pants on the pant and underpants layer. You can wear the shirt alone, or with the sweater, or with the vest, or with both!

This is a semi casual outfit, like Shai Delacroix does often, each time with the same sense of chic and comfort, exactly the kind of stuff you can wear for almost every occasion!

Style and colors are just fine. (I’m sorry to say all the time the same things about Shai’s work!) Everything is modify for a perfect fitting, and copyable. You can pick your favorite color for 750 Lindens, or get the fatpack for 2500 Lindens. A bit overpriced in my humble opinion ;-)

• Also new, a hair for men by Aemilia Case from Philotic Energy. It’s no secret I love Aemilia’s work, which gets better and better at each release. This Mykal hair, short and casual, is really sexy and a pure masterpiece of prim work. Look at the rear side of the hair! It’s too often the weak point of hair. They come in 21 colors and are very fairly priced at 150 Lindens per color. I will show you soon two other short cuts Aemilia just released too!

• Introducing another new ring by Mhaijik Guillaume in the new Surfer Dream series, “In a Sunny Wanting the Ocean Mood.” Showing you today “Mhaijik Surfers Dream R Pinky Finger,” Gold with Green Sea Topaz gems. 100 Lindens, moddable and giftable.

• Poses from the main composite were provided by CGBG. They are sold for 100 Lindens each or gathered in a cool AO ready to wear for 700 Lindens. The poses look pretty natural, and I really appreciated working with them.

Nouveau chez / New at “Unknown” and “Zona Cero”

Perry Proudhon | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Semi-Casual | Monday, January 28th, 2008

Unknown Jewell doesn’t have a lot of items at Unknown Boutique, but the items are well done. Colorful multi-packs of basic shirts and pants, and this nicely made tweed coat, available in both dark (shown) and a lighter grey version. Each unisex coat comes with two inner shirts, in white and wine. My one complaint is that the shirt sleeves are only 3/4 length and not able to be made longer, so when I loosen the shirt sleeves to thus loosen the coat sleeves, it gives an odd effect. I’ll live with it, but I would prefer a long, loose coat sleeve.

Keishii Roo has entered the hair market with Kyo, a long, anime-inspired hairstyle at Zona Cero. After a few adjustments to remedy a stubborn strand of hair that kept showing up in my eyeball, I was pretty happy with it. I don’t usually wear hair this long, so it took a while to get used to. I like the color selection, ranging from natural black and browns to vivid red and blue. Maybe some flexi elements could help the overall impression.

Dug into my inventory and found some high-top light purple kickers I hadn’t worn in a while, wooly skull gloves from Civvies, and glasses from Primcrafters (I think I bought these my first week on SL!). With scriptable lens and rim color, and opacity, they’re still one of my favorite items on SL.

Nouveau chez / New at “DE Designs” and “Insomnia”

Perry Proudhon | - Tenue/Outfit, Casual, Punky | Saturday, January 26th, 2008

DoC Eldritch’s shop, DE Designs, is HUGE. I know because I was wandering around it late last night trying to find something. It was right in front of my face, of course, but hey, it was late…Anyway, these basic leather pants are nice. The texture is pretty authentic, giving you the feel of real leather. They come in three colors: slate (shown in main pictures), black and brown.

Sark Lane has a new place just upstairs from Zona Cero at Icewater. It’s called “Insomnia” and features some interesting, quirky shirts and jewelry. This shirt, Two Faces, drew a lot of positive comments when I wore it in world the past couple days. I’m also wearing Sark’s “obsession bands,” as well as the snakebite necklace from Zona Cero.

The Envision Wraith skin has also been drawing a lot of comments from people, all positive. I enjoy the distinctly different look a wraith skin gives you; I’ve always found them sexy. Philotic Energy’s Billie II hair and JCS’s Oslo shoes in black, The End!

Nouveau chez / New at: “Eros Design”

This Alex3 suit by Keth Mommsen for Eros Design is not only perfectly done, it will allow you to express your creativity at coloring, as he offers a tintable version of the tie and of the shirt in the package, added to a ready to wear version!

In the pack you will get two sets of pieces, conveniently numbered, 1 for the ready to wear version, offering a great red tie on a white shirt, with a vest and a long jacket with a complement on the skirt layer (moddable so you can have a more classic look), 2 for the tintable version, offering the same jacket, pants and skirt, plus a special shirt layer for the shirt and a very special undershirt layer for the tie, both tintable. This is the most clever way to offer different ties for a single shirt, as you keep the ability to modify the shirt sleeve to give volume to the jacket’s sleeves, and you still have the ability to change the tie’s color.

The suit is black, which is really challenging for the maker, as in SL the textures do not have thickness like irl, thickness and volume which could grab the light and show the details. Keth did a great job on the pockets, lapels and buttons, to make them visible even on a dark background. There is more: Keth Mommsen knows to place her lapels in the right place to lessen the impact of the body distortion due to movements. You can use many poses and AOs, still looking good without too much ugly distortion.

It goes without saying that this kind of attention to detail ravishes me. I just wait for new versions of this great suit, a version without a vest, more colors of course, and especially in case of tintable objects, a copy-no transfer option. Plus I (and many other) lost so many “no copy” items, eaten by SL…
Anyway, this Alex3 suit is an absolute must have in my humble opinion. I just really hope there will be more colors soon!

Everything is moddable and transfer; you can get your copy for 600 Lindens.

Perry Proudhon | - Every Day Outfits, - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual | Thursday, January 24th, 2008

What I like most about Posy Trudeau’s new Supertight Tees is the shading and detail on the torso…makes a skinny av like me look like he’s got some muscles without looking like The Incredible Hulk. The graphics (Patriot, RocknRoll, Urban Grunge, Winged Skull, Tunes and Royal Crest) are simple and understated. The colors, unfortunately, are the same. I would like them to be a bit more vivid, I guess. The colors are so similar to one another, I find it a little hard to distinguish one shirt from the next in my memory.

The R&B Check Pants from GRANDMA! are fun and goofy, in a not-so-subdued plaid. The clothes at Grandma’s are cool, I think, and easy to pair with plainer pieces for a great looking ensemble.

Several times in the past few weeks, I’ve IM’d people whose hair I’ve found interesting and come up with the same answer — booN. boo Nakamura’s hairstyles are messy and wild, with a distinctly anime style. You can find booN on the Japanese sim, Osaka.

Rounding out today’s outfit is the Heartbreaker necklace from Goth1co and the black Scratch shoes from JCS.

Nouveau chez / New at “Mhaijik Things” & “UOMO”

Introducing today the “Crew” outfit by Kitridge DeSantis for UOMO.
In each color pack (4 different ones, shown below) you will get: A pair of jeans (same jeans with brown or black belt, depending on which pack you choose), a plaid shirt on the jacket layer (untucked), shirt, and undershirt layer (both tucked), with a complement on the underpants layer for a perfect fit with low waist pants, a blazer on the jacket layer, also a version of the pants on the underpants layer (to wear tucked in boots) and a special complement on the pants layer showing the untucked lower part of the shirt, in case you would like an untucked look with the blazer on the jacket layer! Wow! It forces you to wear the pants on the underpants layer, though, which is really usable only with boots.

Everything is copy and modify, you won’t have problems to tweak finely your sleeves and pants cuffs! I like the quality of the items Kitridge Desantis offers, with mostly vivid colors, or at least vivid accents! This “Crew” outfit is laid back without making you look like you are ready to wash the car!

Quality: 4/5 - Style-Originality: 2/5 - Usability (different layers, modify perms, amount of outfits put together with a single pack): 4/5 - Price: 4/5 - Value for money: 4/5

Also a brand new ring from Mhaijik Guillaume, BeLoved ring, eclectic mixture of textures in true Mhaijik-style.
“Remember those soppy valentines you used to make? The ones that were layers and layers of lace doilies, heart stickers and glitter? Remember adding ribbon and more red? Remember working on it for hours and hours with the light of love and the vision of seeing his smile when he opened it? Closing your eyes and grinning at the happiness and love that your hands were melding into the intricate work of art you were creating… I love Love and in that frame of mind I created this ring – Be Loved.” Mhaijik said.

I chose “Loved Ring a Miscellany on leather” for today. Enjoy! It’s modify and transfer and you can get it for 250 Lindens.
