Today new tattoos from negko Design and Devol!

Negko DeVinna (for Negko Design) always makes of his creations something special. His skins and tattoos bring to the customer more than a product, but also a story, a tale. His inspiration for tattoos is made of Polynesian classics, Chinese patterns and his special touch of ultra-modernity. Those tattoos show lighter zones, as if partly erased. Why? What for? You can write your own story about these tattoos. That very fact is the sign of true art!

I won’t forget to mention that negko tattoos are seamless. You can count on the fingers of one hand the designers able to do that…

The tattoos come in many versions. You can mix and match them with each other. They come in as many layers as possible. Price range is from 49 Lindens to 249 Lindens, following the amount of layers in the pack (from simple gloves to full body tattoos). They are no modify, copy and no transfer.

Kaori Masala is a japanese designer. Under her brand Devol, she offers japanese style tattoos. Here you are in the kingdom of realism, with pieces looking like the most classic Japanese tattoos. You are discovering today her last creation, Fish and Sea, showing a fish with all its movement figured. 230 Lindens, copy, modify, no transfer.

Silk is from The Silk Raven (Solange Cerveau). I don’t give Solange credit for her huge work on it, since I haven’t shown even a tenth of what you get in the pack! Short and long version of the loin cloth, also sheer version of it, bracers, chest danglies, circlets, armbands… etc. A mere 21 pieces in each color pack! Everything is copy and modify. You can choose from many colors, your favorites for 550 Lindens each!

My model for today is “Aidan,” shape by Vasean Talamasca for Flesh Peddlers. 200 Lindens for a modify skin is a very generous offer. If you don’t feel able to build your own shape, use a good one like this one, and please don’t spend a fortune on it!

Tenue du Jour / Outfit of the Day

Domch Raymaker | - Tenue/Outfit, Casual, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Sunday, March 23rd, 2008

“By taking my hand, she showed me…that within the real world, a place like this existed. In the space of those ten seconds, I became a tiny bird, fluttering into the air, the wind rushing by. From high in the sky, I could see a scene far away It was so far off, I couldn’t make it out clearly, yet something was there, and I knew that one day, I would travel to that place. This revelation made me catch my breath, and made my chest tremble.” – ‘South of the Border, West of the Sun’, Haruki Murakami.

There’s something about the clothes from Grandma! that invariably brings a smile to my face. Perhaps it’s the tender humour inherent evoked by the name itself. Or the fact that Hanae Nishi works with a bright, happy palette for her line of clothes and unabashedly uses floral motifs in her designs – a real rarity in SL menswear. Or maybe it’s how she weaves in such pleasing little details into her pieces – a button here, a cunningly placed flower there – such that each Grandma! item feels like a veritable handcrafted labour of love.

I found Hanae’s Orange Blossom knitted cardigan an especially apt, lovely piece for spring – perfect for indoor wear or a walk along the beach at a time when there’s still a bit of nip in the air. The vivid, saturated blue brings to mind wide expanses of sky, and against this, Hanae has sprinkled a handful of orange flowers – just enough for a touch of whimsy, without being overwhelming.

To better bring out the bright tone of the cardigan, I’ve paired it with a recent release from Dutch Touch – the Blue Clamdigger, a pair of navy blue cargo shorts. This comes as part of the ‘Cool Blue’ package, along with three striped tank tops in various shades of blue, but as with Iki Ikarus’ work in general, these are all high quality pieces well worth the L$225 price tag.

Rounding off the outfit are Yukirei Greene’s Future Magic earring – a dazzling sapphire set into a silver square, and Noelle Elide’s vintage animal charm bracelet. The latter is a freebie from Le Zoo, and can be found in the gift shop.

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Casual, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Wednesday, September 5th, 2007

• New collection from JGD by Birdy Shepherd who has now reached his maturity. Affirmed colors, neat forms which slightly let show the Japanese culture of the designer. Today I bring you the sweaters with shirts offered in really cool colors, the halfpants in subtle plaid and the very interesting sandals coming in many colors.

• Something has changed in the country of men’s hair! Before, travel in it was a long journey in a deserted landscape with one or two makers offering a limited choice. Now all seems to be changing! Aemilia Case for Philotic Energy offers us 3 new haircuts! Totally modern, with an affirmed style, they will please those looking for showing their personality with their haircut! Go take the demo at Imogen, second floor of Lemon shop.
