Nouveau chez / New at “Argrace” part III

Perry Proudhon | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter | Sunday, March 9th, 2008

I’ve seen and worn other beanies with hair on SL, but this is my favorite by far. I like the wispiness of the hair and the texture of the cap is perfect. I love the little Argrace tag! You can get the hair in different colors, as well as short and medium lengths (I’m showing medium length hair in black here). You change the color of the cap by clicking it and choosing your color from the menu that appears.

Here’s the lighter version of the tweed coat from Unknown I showed a month or so ago. Worn with the wine shirt underneath. Also from Unknown, the side line pants, dark with the dark stripe. Finishing off the outfit, the new Dublin shoes from JCS, in black.

Nouveau chez / new at: “Hoorenbeek” & “Kin”

Perry Proudhon | - Every Day Outfits, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual | Sunday, February 24th, 2008

The new Hoorenbeek All Star tennis shoes are very well-made and come in an array of colors, including the sand shown here and (below) black, pink, purple and red, as well as green and blue, and (previously shown on slmen.com) white and camo. The detail is excellent, as well as the realism. They look quite a bit like the real thing. I look forward to the possibility of a low version as well as these high-tops. To me, high tops are always annoying with long pants on SL as you have to make the pants flare bigger than you might usually wear.

Quality: 4.5/5 - Style-Originality: 3.5/5 - Usability (different layers, modify perms, amount of outfits put together with a single pack, sizes for attachments…): 4/5 - Price: 2/5 - Value for money: 3.5/5

This new hair by Kin, Yohkoh, is cool, especially in black (of course). At only 100L a color, it’s a real bargain, too. I like the shaggy style and the flexi touch at the base in the back. You can get a fatpack as well for 600L, including colors like pink and blue. It’s in the women’s section of Kin (is there a men’s section?), but like a lot of Kin’s stuff, it works as a unisex style.

Quality: 4.5/5 - Style-Originality: 4/5 - Usability (different layers, modify perms, amount of outfits put together with a single pack, sizes for attachments…): NA - Price: 5/5 - Value for money: 5/5

Finishing off this outfit are brown chinos from Style Starts Here and a nice striped sweater from Unknown Boutique.

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.

Robin gives away templates for clothing, which help many designers within Second Life. Not only does she have a great sense of community, but she offers nicely done pieces of clothing and romantic items (irresistible candles and items for the home!) at incredibly low prices.

“Moose Sweaters” come in a very wide variety of colors, a choice of layers (shirt or jacket), a prim collar, and additional detail on the skirt layer. You can get your favorite colors for a low 100 Lindens each, a total steal for such quality! Everything is moddable and copyable, but no transfer.
