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
We have no information about Kitridge DeSantis customer service.

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.

Quality: 4/5 - Style-Originality: 5/5 - Usability (different layers, modify perms, amount of outfits put together with a single pack): 5/5 - Price: 3/5 - Value for money: 4/5
Mhaijik Guillaume offers a very careful and open minded customer service. She willingly does customs.

Tenue du jour / Outfit of the Day: Aitui, JCS Shoes, Mystikal, Simone!

Perry Proudhon | - Every Day Outfits, - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual | Monday, December 10th, 2007

To me, texture is the most important part of SL clothing, and that’s what attracted me about this sweater from Simone! and the Aitui pants. Both look soft to the touch, draping realistically, with nice highlighting. The Oslo shoes from Eponymous Trenchmouth continue to be my favorites…I rarely wear any others on SL lately.

Mystikal Faddoul’s Chico hair is natural and messy without being scruffy. Shown here in Chocolate, the color is less severe and compliments the softness of the TaP skin.

Tenue du Jour / Outfit of the Day: Winter Showing

Perry Proudhon | - Every Day Outfits, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual | Monday, November 26th, 2007

The snow has already started to fly up north, so I’ve dragged out the cold-weather gear on SL as well as in real life. Early on, I purchased this set of men’s pea coats at Back and Forth, so reasonably priced at 300L for six colors. The scarf, from Gritty Kitty, has several different patterns to choose from including the fishbone (shown) as well as a red star, rat, skull, and several others.

I love these cords from Kitridge De Santis. I’m wearing the black ones, because I wanted to try out the black Oslos by Eponymous Trenchmouth. The fatpack is definitely worth the price, since you get four pair for barely more than the price of two. They’re nice because they have the look of boots without the bother of having to mess around with the pants to make them fit over the tops.

Nouveau chez / New at “Perfect Tomorrow” by Perfect Tomorrow

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual | Saturday, November 10th, 2007

Introducing today new shoes by Perfect Tomorrow, “Standard Boots.”
I’ve loved these shoes at first sight. It doesn’t happen often, I swear! Probably because they remind me of those I wore when I was a little child, the “Kickers,” or maybe because I find their round shape uber funny and cute, or the tons of funny colors… Anyway, those sculptie shoes will go immediately into my favorite folder!

They are only 15 prims each. You can wear them to avoid sim crashing when you are invited to an event!

Demos are available for free. It’s important for you to try on the demo before buying. These shoes demand that your feet are set to zero, but very muscled avatars could have fitting problems, as the average body thickness (body tab in shape, in appearance mode) modifies the size of the ankle too. After testing, I can tell you that your feet will start to show thru the shoe over 45, depending on the position, but you can cheat by moving a bit the shoes in “edit” mode. Anyway, you can’t wear these shoes if your body thickness is over 75. Well, if you don’t have a modify shape, IM your scammer Oops! seller to ask him for a moddable copy. Or, better yet, change for a shape bought in a shop owned by an ethical seller, aka a shape maker selling MODIFY shapes.

You will find “Standard Boots” in ten colors for the basic version, nine mix of a color and white, nine mix of a color and black. Each pair is sold for 285 Lindens. No fat pack.

I’m showing one more time “Page” by Mystikal Faddoul for Mystikal Hair Designs, my favorite hair of the moment, which is, i insist a lot on that, as good on every side, including the rear. This is rare enough to mention!

Also some more stuff from Dutch Touch. Iki Ikarus is simply good at designing pixel clothing, period.

Some new things today!

New jeans at Mantra, by Kim Takashi. They come in three washes of blue (shown). Each color pack includes 2 versions, with and without textured buckle, and 4 prim buckle attachments. I’m not very happy when it comes to adjusting a belt, so I appreciate particularly this way of getting some more realism without too much work! ;-) 150 Lindens for a color pack, 375 for the everything pack! Kim switched her perm to modify-copy-no transfer to allow you to include her jeans in outfits folders and protect you against inventory losses (you can back up your copy items on a prim) and in case of misdelivery when you buy them, there will be no problem to get them again. Thank you Lindens!

New bracelets and armbands by Faery Sola for studio sidhe. I’m showing a bracelet. Each color pack (from six) comes with prefitted left and right versions of both bracelet and armband. They are nicely textured and show a semi-precious bead on the leather thong. You can have a color pack for 125 Lindens, or an everything pack for 375 Lindens.

New shoes by Emilia Redgrave for Redgrave. These sculpty boots use a very photorealistic texture. They are the first “kind of” chelsea boots in SL, with elastic sides. They come in four colors : Black, Brown, Honey, Darksand, for 450 Lindens each pair, or 1600 lindens for them all.

Body Positive - Nouveau chez / New release at: “Tete a Pied”, Vivant Men’s skins.

Ben Vanguard | - Body Positive (Skins+Shapes) | Thursday, November 8th, 2007

Introducing today the new men’s skins by Roslin Petion and CJ Carnot for “Tete a Pied” (which means absolutely nothing in French, but whatever!).

These skins are a total breakthrough in the men’s skin market, as they are priced at only 500 Lindens, which is absolutely new for such quality work.
It’s a very hard point for the competitors and an excellent one for the customers!

“These skins fall very nicely between photoreal and hand drawn. Like our women’s line, they are a hybrid skin. We wanted them to compliment our women’s line but gave them a little extra contrast to add strength to the detail. Each skin comes with a version with and without scalp hair and they are available in 6 skin tones. We might consider red haired and blonde versions if we hear there is enough of a demand and as always, we are happy to do customs. In addition to a Clean Cut and Beat (goatee) option, we’ve created a Mature look, a few extra lines and wrinkles lend the skin a dignified older man look,” Roslin Petion said.

Maybe they will offer some more facial hair options later, and if you can’t wait for different facial hair color, IM Roslin Petion or CJ Carnot; for a small fee you could have a custom skin! For sure we weren’t used to that, guys! :-)

You will find in this long post a first composite with the details of the skin, then the 6 skin tones. After the jump, you will discover the three versions, mature, clean cut and “beat,” a full goatee, with and without designers’ prim hair. Then last but not least, you will see how “Vivant skin for men” looks on 6 different MODIFIABLE designers’ shapes (I can’t say it enough: never buy a no modify shape, you would regret it one day or another.)
I tried on around 60 of them, and I can say “Vivant” is pretty versatile and fits most of the skins on the market. Anyway, I chose 6 which offer different faces and a particularly good fitting.

What I love: the smooth details; the totally successful mix of “hand drawn” and “photosourced” design; the subtle colors offered, the possibility of custom personalization.

What I wish: a better definition of the feet; more facial hair option, color and cut! This skin deserves them!

Conclusion: go grab the demos now!

Nouveau chez / New at “Casa Del Shai” and “Mystikal Hair Designs”

• Shai Delacroix offered us a couple weeks ago two formal tuxedos with a special Shai touch: three versions of the shirt: with untied bow tie, so very Shai LOL, regular white to wear with a prim bow tie, and with regular tie. All that in two colors, black and Leopard. I ‘m showing today Leopard which is totally original.

The fabric of the suit, with a leopard skin pattern, would be certainly terrible used by many other designer in world. Shai knew to make it chic and wearable in an offhand manner!

Pants and shirts are moddable for perfect fitting. 650 Lindens for each color.

• I’m showing you a new hair from Mystikal Faddoul. It is gently messy, neither too long, nor too short, the kind of hair i like wearing with something a bit formal, to break the look! :-) You will notice it looks great on the rear side too!

It comes in 23 colors and is offered for 250 Lindens per color.
