Nouveau Chez / New at: “Civvies” & “Kalrau”

Perry Proudhon | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Wednesday, August 20th, 2008

This white jacket from Kal Rau is part of his newly released collection of men’s clothing, and — as usual — is superbly textured, a sort of net fabric overlaying a subtly patterned underlayer. Comes on the jacket layer with moddable hood.

Quality: 4/5 - Style-Originality: 4/5 - Usability (different layers, modify perms, amount of outfits put together with a single pack, sizes for attachments…):2.5/5 - Price:3/5 - Value for money: 3.5/5

The sunglasses, also from Kalrau, are sleek and stylish, and easily scripted for clickable resizing. (I love resizing scripts, sorry!)

Posy Trudeau’s Baggy Jeans at Civvies are put together in a pack with different versions of belted jeans — brown, blue, gray, green, orange, pink, and red — 7 colors in two presized versions, plus two presized pair of sculpty cuffs, all moddable, in baggy and shabby baggy versions! I know you can’t see the belt here, but it made no sense to put it under the jacket. ;)

Rounding off this outfit, the new and recently featured Stomper Engineer boots from Style Starts Here, Danny hair from Truth (still available as a dollarbie, soon to be discontinued…go grab it!), the recently featured Square Link Black Titanium Link Bracelet from Dahlinks, the air vial pendant and a black rubber thumb ring from Mhaijik Guillaume.

Enjoy!

Nouveau chez / New at “Civvies” and “Negko Design”

Perry Proudhon | - Tenue/Outfit, Costume, Dressy, Night | Saturday, April 12th, 2008

Negko DeVinna has put together a creative batch of skins called Orphee Chapter 1 - The Long Journey. The days don’t really make sense to me, but who am I to question the motives or creativity of a designer? Day 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18 — that’s 10 skins for $888. I’m pretty sure it’s differences in facial hair from one day to the next. This skin I’m wearing is Day 18. Made me feel like a beatnik, which fit perfectly with Posy Trudeau’s new Vasean coat (she calls it a coat; I’d call it a jacket). The whole outfit begged to be shown in a psychedelic atmosphere. This is the brown version of the coat; it also comes in black, red and green.

I think my main complaint about the skin is the hands…they look odd to me. But I’ve only made a fleeting attempt at making a skin and I never even got to the hands. I’m sure they’re difficult as hell. And 888L for 10 skins is quite a deal. Just shove your hands in your pockets!

My only complaint about the coat, which I think is very nicely textured and has a good cut, is that the collar prevents one from wearing a necklace, since they both have the same attachment point. And yeah, I probably could have messed around with attaching either of them to a different point, but that defeats the purpose of ease of use.

The outfit is finished off with Aitui’s Reborn pants in black, and the JCS’s Oslo boots in brown. Hair is “Wentz” by Truth.

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.

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.

Tenue du Jour / Outfit of the Day : “Civvies”, “Flesh Peddlers”, “Form”, “Zero Number”…

Perry Proudhon | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer, Punky | Thursday, December 27th, 2007

Several people have attempted “beaten” skins…I think Posy Trudeau has succeeded quite well with her “Fight” version of the Jack skin at Flesh Peddlers. Looking at the bruises and cuts makes your eyes water, I swear.

The War-Torn Gear is a series of tanks and tees in different neutral colors on jacket, shirt and undershirt layer that can be mixed and matched for various effects.

FORM’s F*cked jeans, shredded and duct-taped, fit the ensemble well. Tied to my leg is the DarkPANDA *Leg Bag by Nana Beatty, from Kana-Na. The outfit is finished off with Engineer Boots by Mai Runo for Zero Number.
