Nouveau chez / New at: “Kalrau”

Perry Proudhon | - Tenue/Outfit, Casual, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Sunday, June 8th, 2008

I love being surprised in Second Life. When I tried on this shirt, I looked at it without even thinking that it was amazing how the belt showed behind the shirt like this. Once I thought about it, I realized the only way to have the belt appear this way, as if you tugged the shirt up a bit to show the buckle, was to have the belt be part of the shirt. I love this! I haven’t seen anything like this much. I think it’s unique and really, really well done. The design on the front of the shirt is intricately drawn. I haven’t tried yet to read all the words in the background…

These black capris are great, too, a a nice soft, baggy pair of pants. The sculpty cuffs are realistic and well done, not looking like a tube stuck around your leg.

Sark Lane has expanded his shop, Insomnia, after relocating from the upstairs of Zona Cero. He’s expanded his inventory tremendously, and this black choker is one of the new items at his shop. It’s sleek and simple, black and silver with a blood red teardrop. Resizes easily if you don’t have a big thick neck. ;)

Again I’m showing the Porn Star slip-ons, this time with the large skull design. These shoes continue to be a great bargain, considering all the options available to you — patterns, colors, sizes.

Truth’s Jared hair, this time in Sable, and this black rubber multiple rings bracelet set from Mhaijik Guillaume, finish off today’s outfit.

Nouveau Chez - New at “hoorenbeek” II

Perry Proudhon | - Tenue/Outfit, Casual | Monday, April 28th, 2008

I was happy to learn of these new cowboy boots at hoorenbeek because I’ve always been fond of the Keith hair/hat combo from Moderno and never had boots that went with it. And these boots are great….the top matches the bottom nearly flawlessly. The pattern in the leather is beautiful, the texture of the leather realistic and soft. The black are my favorite (go figure), but all colors are cool.

Muism’s black tank worked well under this sadly no longer available jacket from Desert Moon (sorry, folks…). (There is a very similar one available called Rampage, though.)

Also worn: the Ratri Night Dark Ring, one of my favorite recent pieces by Mhaijik Guillaume, and the snakebite necklace from Zona Cero.

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.

Nouveau chez / New at “DE Designs” and “Insomnia”

Perry Proudhon | - Tenue/Outfit, Casual, Punky | Saturday, January 26th, 2008

DoC Eldritch’s shop, DE Designs, is HUGE. I know because I was wandering around it late last night trying to find something. It was right in front of my face, of course, but hey, it was late…Anyway, these basic leather pants are nice. The texture is pretty authentic, giving you the feel of real leather. They come in three colors: slate (shown in main pictures), black and brown.

Sark Lane has a new place just upstairs from Zona Cero at Icewater. It’s called “Insomnia” and features some interesting, quirky shirts and jewelry. This shirt, Two Faces, drew a lot of positive comments when I wore it in world the past couple days. I’m also wearing Sark’s “obsession bands,” as well as the snakebite necklace from Zona Cero.

The Envision Wraith skin has also been drawing a lot of comments from people, all positive. I enjoy the distinctly different look a wraith skin gives you; I’ve always found them sexy. Philotic Energy’s Billie II hair and JCS’s Oslo shoes in black, The End!

Tenue du Jour / Outfit of the Day

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Casual, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Friday, November 9th, 2007

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.
