I am not very creative today when it comes to blog titles but I wanted to show of these skates from this round of the Arcade. The stakes come from The Secret Store, I have been wearing them since they time I picked up the blogger preview and wearing an old Ice Skate AO so it looks like I am skating. They are pretty fun. So if you are into retro looking skates, pick them up.
Speaking of pretty cool, have you seen this sweater from FATEwear? It’s one of the two new releases from the brand. Above is the Harrison sweater. The Ford swear pretty much has the same design except it is solid while Harrison is striped.
While we are on the topic of new and FATEwear, they also released a fat pack hud. For the Harrison and Ford sweaters it pretty much looks like the image bellow. Except like stated above, Ford has solid options
The hud for the Sweaters is pretty easy to use. The all color option sets at the parts (1-3) to the preset color. The part 1, 2 and 3 tabs only control that one part of the sweater.
Part 01 being the main body of the sweat, part 02 being the sleeve, and part 03 being the buttons along the side. If I could do math I would tell you haw many different combinations you can make with the fat pack hud. However, I am pretty sucky at math so.. Let’s just say it’s a lot mmkay?

So an amazing event opens tomorrow. I bet you never heard of it. It’s called The Arcade. Today I swung by for blogger preview day and picked up a few amazing items. For this look and this picture I am using two of the amazing items you can win at the event. The first item would be the Boom Nature’s Crown and a Teardrop Trailer for the store Floorplan.
In this look I am also using the amazing Mesh Feet from Ispachi. I am going to do a blogger blog post with all of it’s features but for this look I am just going to give a bit of a preview. Trust me these things are amazing.

I had to redo these photos because secondlife was like “You know what would be cool? It you wore two different hairs with out knowing it.” I didn’t notice I was wearing two different hairs until I went to put in the credits. I was like “Well that’s why this hair looked so off.” So, I guess I need to pay more attention.
I really don’t have much to say about this outfit. The coat is a newer item from FATEwear that I love. FATEwear to me is that one brand that makes classy grown up clothing. I am always happy when he has a new release because I get to play adult dress up time.

I was going to write this whole long blog post about how I wish designers that created items for men would start using colors other than Black, Blue and Red. But I sort of saw where that would lead. “But Gabe this and this brand uses yellow” And I am sure they do. However, I still feel the majority of menswear designers stay away from pastel colors. Or colors which are stereotypical seen as feminine. I get it, your black coat will sell more than say a pink one or a light blue one.
I still think I find myself a little jealous of the females in secondlife, they seem to have all the colors and patterns I wish male designers used for their items. Like the store Auxilary. Their Collab 88 item this round was a dress with little ponies. I would love that print as a blazer or something.
So the whole point of this rant I guess is, content creators for men. Can I has a pink pony blazer.
With that out of the way, let’s get back to this look. For those of you who don’t know my blogging past, CheerNo was the first ever brand to send me review copies. I have always enjoyed them because they do the thing I wish more designers would (see rant above) so I was thrilled when they sent out this shirt in the blogger group. It’s PINK! I love pink. This shirt and a pair of jeans (Not the ones in this look) can be picked up at this round of The Dressing Room.

Around the holidays this year, I bought myself a pea coat It’s an Old Navy jacket, when I got it it was on sale for only $1o. Now, let me explain something to you. In real life I am a larger man, I have wanted a pea coat for years but admitting I was a little larger. But something happen when I was sent away to college, I stated to eat less, I started walking and weight started to come off. Enough weight that I went don’t from a size 44 in pants to a 40. Needless to say, I need new clothing. I don’t really know why we did, but my family talked me into checking out old navy. I can now wear their clothing. Not only that, I got my first pea coat.
While this peacoat from Sleepy Eddy is something I cannot wear in person, when I saw they were this jacket for this rounds of “The Men’s Department”, I had thee same feeling. So I was excited when I saw it and even more excited when it was sent as a blogger copy. So thank you to the designer of Sleepy Eddy for reminding me of that small moment in time this winter that brought me joy.

So, a few events have started this past weekend that I think you should know about. I was lucky enough to have a blogger pass to both of these and I would like to share what I have found.

Hair Fair 2012 is almost upon us. I was lucky enough to get early access. The fair itself is broken up into four sims, garden, flower, sand and water. I was pleased with the amount of male hair (or hair that looks good on a male avatar) at the fair itself. I’d like to show you the hairs I bought today. In this post the store name and the sim name is in bold. The fair is not open to the public but once it does I will add the surls to the sims bellow.
Lets begin with these three hairs starting with on one on the left. The hair on the left comes from Illusory and can be found on the Sand sim. The Misunderstood hair is a great value at $L 300. For that price you get 9 different color option plus hair bases just in case your current skin doesn’t match the hair or does not have one. I bought the dip pack because I am addicted to multi-color hair.
This fun colored hair comes from the double dip texture options from Epoque. The hair called Heartbreaker, is the only male hair at this store’s booth this year which is on the Water sim. The hair is mesh but it’s resizeable which is great for me because I have a huge head. The double dip texture pack will cost you L$299 for five color options
The last hair in this picture is called 6th Avenue Heartache and comes from Exile. The hair is mesh but is modable when it comes to size. For L$250 you get five different hair color options. The Exile hair is a perfect hair if you want to dress up or dress down. You can find the Exile booth at the Sand sim.
This hair from Entente is called Etienne and can found of the Garden sim. The hair is a very neat looking hair and hat combo. The hat comes with the color in the image but you can buy additional texture packs for $L 15o. The hair itself will cost you around $L 250 for a four hair color pack. Everything with the hair is hud driven.
If I ever go full time dread locks it would be Discord Designers‘ fault and this amazing mesh hair called Dhilon would be why. The Discord booth can be found on the sim Water this year. I said said before the hair is mesh and when you get the hair you get 6 different colors for L$180.

It’s time for word, word word of the week *Jazz hands*. (oh man I need a theme song)
Today is the 4th of July in the states and I won’t be home. So I am giving you your word of the week early. This weeks word is scandalous.
When something is scandalous it’s eye catching and shocking. It pulls focus and attention away from anything going on in the room and becomes the center of attention. Looking at the head shot above you may be thinking “What’s so scandalous. Well just look at the full outfit under the cut
Hello boys, girls and tragic followers it’s Wednesday which means it’s time for our first ever Word of the Week. This week I thought I would go easy on you and pick a simple word. And that word is comfort. You have a week to style an outfit that you think goes along with the world comfort. Feel free to link back to this page and post your post down in the comments bellow. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
When I think of the word comfort I think of a cold winter’s day being in a warm cozy house wrapped up in a sweater. I am an odd person and the upper half of my body gets colder than my lover half so I would be wearing shorts add a pair of socks, and there you have.
