Tenue du jour / Outfit of the day

Emma Gilmour, under the name “Hudsen Armidi,” has recently designed these very well done moto jackets. They come in a wide range of colors. In each color pack, you will find a jacket layer, and, in two pre-sized but moddable versions (one for men, one for women or small avatars), cuffs, collar and a bottom piece in sculpty prims. As you might notice on the following pictures, the texturing of the prim attachment is totally great. You can often find unmatching textures between clothing layers and prim attachments, but these ones are melting almost perfectly, with a level of quality I never knew ’til now. Everything is, obviously, moddable and copy-no transfer. Choose your favorite colors for 475 Lindens each! Besides the classic ones, try on the bright ones, like the luminous green I’m showing in the main composite!

I needed high quality jeans to match these jackets. I chose the new UNO jeans from SLAB. I’m pretty ok with the great Robin Sojourner when she says, “jeans shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg.” But I have to admit that these jeans from Pompo Bombaci are really nicely done, and are worth it, especially since he cut their price! They come in four colors (shown below.) In each color pack, you will have four versions with a different belt color, on both pants and underpants layer, plus a pair of matching socks, very useful to make the inner side of those nicely textured items look as good as the outside (for newbies, inner color and texture of pants is done with the socks); I wish more designers would think of offering these kinds of goodies! Elegance hides in details, like the devil… :-) So, you will get your color pack for 395 lindens, with 20% off the introductory price. For bargain chasers, the fat pack is now priced at 995 lindens. 12 versions of the jeans, in every color, every belt color, each of the twelve in both pants and underpants layers, plus matching socks. If you want great photosourced jeans for each and every occasion, this is the master choice!

Left to Right: ! SLAB Uno Green (Black Belt), Blue (Blue Belt), Basics (Brown Belt), and Gray (Purple Belt).

I’m showing also the good “Nike-like” from Hoorenbeek: Airforce. The designers behind the brand offer now a wide range of casual and dress sculpty shoes. These Airforce show quality building. They come in six colors, each of them in 4 sizes. You can choose your perms: copy or transfer, according to your needs, for 520 Lindens per color. If you want shoes that mimic RL ones, Hoorenbeek has definitely become a brand of choice.

Also showing the last Ottico glasses and a new cool and funny hair from Boon: KAR07. You need it if you’re looking for middle length heavily curled hair!

Nouveau chez / New release at: “Jeepers Creepers” and “Savvy?”

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Casual, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Saturday, June 30th, 2007

<> Eponymous Trenchmouth (Jeepers Creepers) just revamped her clogs. Yes, clogs can be cute, and hers are! They come in many finishes (white, brown, black, camo and a special “tech” version). They are sold for 300 Lindens a pair.

• What makes me happy: Left and right foot are designed differently (look at your sl shoes, it’s pretty rare! they are usually the same for both feet). That adds a big touch of realism. I’m happy to have an alternative to sandals. I love sandals, but the feet in sl don’t look so good… and like Epy said very cleverly herself “You cant wear boots at the beach or on the boardwalk.” Lol!

• What I wish: I won’t deprive myself to ask for more colors! :-)

<> New release at Savvy (Dakota Buck), with the unisexy “Lucas pants”, Dakota offers men short pants in four colors. They are sold for 90 Lindens each, and 300 for the fat pack.

• What makes me happy: the originality of the cut and the texture, the intense colors.

• What I wish: well, more, more, more versions! Shorter and a bit longer for example! :-)

Nouveau chez Ask / New release at Ask

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Dressy, Official, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer, Semi-Casual | Monday, June 18th, 2007

“Sigmund” is the new 70’s suit By Neferia Abel for ASK. It comes with 3 shirt’s colors (combined with the jacket on the jacket layer) plus a jacket without shirt, allowing you to wear a shirt of your choice, or no shirt at all! The pack costs 150 Lindens. Yes, it’s a bargain!

Take also a look at the new sculpted sneakers by Tekilah Elytis, the first really good sculpted shoes I’ve seen. They come in several colors for 199 Lindens, a very fair price!

Last but not least, you will find in this post a feast of usefull complements: The sleeves filler you already know if you read this blog regularly, and the bare foot socks and bare hand gloves by robin sojourner, which avoid you to show ugly flesh colored inner pants or sleeves, when you don’t wear socks or have loose sleeves… Those socks and gloves are free, so run and take your pack asap! Elegance, like evil, hides in details :-)

By the way, do you know what means “Ask”, name of Neferia’s shop? No, it’s not the english verb “ask”. Let’s hear the explanation by Neferia herseilf : “I am norwegian and ask was the first man on earth in the viking mythology. Ask and Embla were the first humans created (by the god Odin and his brothers Ve and Vili). They were created by pieces of driftwood, ash and elm respectively. Odin breathed life into them, Ve gave them intelligence and emotion, and Vili bestowed them with senses and speech.
So there is the story behind the name of my shop :-)”
