Special Designer: “Arai” plus “Zero Number”, “Zero Style”…

• Introducing today some items from “Arai” by mappy Handrick. I discovered the shop randomly a few days ago. Mappy offers basic items at very low prices. Military jacket comes on the jacket and skirt layer. Seams between both layers are nicely adjusted (I’m less against skirt layer complements since I knew properly fitted ones). In the pack you will get two jacket layers, one with included shirt, the other without. A pre-fitted sleeve filler is provided, completing the “shirt included” version (70 Lindens).

Also showing “Leather jacket” in three colors, with and without included shirt on the jacket layer as well, plus sleeve filler (60 Lindens/color,) “Tailored jacket” with shirt or T-shirt included on the jacket layer, or without (70 Lindens), and a pack of two pairs of jeans, pretty nice ones, in two shades of blue, they are almost given (2 lindens!).
Everything is neat, copyable and moddable. Arai is a perfect address for those on a budget willing to look good!

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

• A new version of the famous “Engineer Boots” from Mai Runo for Zero style is available! City casual looking boots which are not punk looking are not so common on the grid. These boots, and the other Mai Runo provides, are some of the best items of this kind. They are moddable, which is pretty rare for shoes, so you are sure to perfectly adjust them to fit your avatar. They come in two parts attached on the foot and lower leg points. For an untucked look, you can wear the shoe part without the leg part, it still looks good!

• Also, the silver version of the ring I showed you yesterday (Guillaume pour homme) and the very good “BRP” hair (Zero Style,) one of the few hair for men offering a very good looking scruff.

Nouveau chez / New at “Philotic Energy” & “SF Designs”

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual, Costume, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Saturday, January 12th, 2008

Introducing today the “SFD Celtic Leather” outfit by Swaffette Firefly for SF Designs. As usual at SF designs, you will get many items in the pack you will buy. Here you will have 2 pair of pants, normal rise (shown) and low rise, each of them on the pants and underpants layer, the last one to wear with pants inside boots, two jackets (open and closed), a sleeve filler on the shirt layer to give some volume to the sleeves, plus many attachments: buckles for cuffs and front jacket, open and closed collar, plus collar flap to wear with the open jacket. Each of them is offered in two presized versions. Everything is moddable and copyable. This complete outfit comes in 6 colors: Red, Black, Pewter, Bronze, Copper (all shown) and in Purple. Each color pack is sold for a very fair 270 Lindens.

Also new, the last hair from “Philotic Energy,” which includes goggles on the forehead, for a different look. Aemilia Case has been working a lot on the fitting of this hair to different head forms, so you should be able to fit this new hair very easily! As usual, the price is very reasonable and you could get your favorite color for 150 Lindens.

To go along with this outfit, I chose the “g2″ facial hair option of “Minnu Model Skin” Gen 3 for men in light tan, a masculine and sexy 3 millimeters long goatee in a healthy but not overtanned look, and the always good Engineer boots by Mai Runo for “0 Number”.

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.

Special créateurs japonais / Japanese Designers Special: “El Trebol,” “Ottico,” “Sey,” “Zero Number”

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual, Night | Friday, December 14th, 2007

When you need a refreshing shopping journey, there is nothing better than an exploration of some Japanese sims! Japanese designers offer truly original items, some at incredibly low prices! My last expedition was inspired by a reader, Domch Raymaker, who sent me pictures of the jacket from risey Arai for “Sey” that I show you today. Thank you very much Domch!
The jacket comes in 6 colors (5 shown plus blue). The jacket layer is completed with many prim attachments: collar, hood (2 sizes), belt, cuffs, arm pockets (2 sizes). The cuffs, belt and collar are moddable, everything is copy-no transfer. You can pick the color of your choice for 300 Lindens.

To go along with this jacket, I chose leather pants from El Trebol (Feliz Krasner), boots from Zero Number (Mai Runo), and hair from Hayate hair Lab (Hayate Ewing). Faithful readers have already seen items from these brands on slmen.

Also introducing interesting sunglasses from Youki Rau for Ottico. This brand offers tons of glasses and shades in a wide variety of styles, from (almost) classic to futuristic models.

I have some other discovered items in my inventory, so very soon you will have more Japanese treasures on slmen!
