Retro Swap Meet and Embody Sale!

Standard

Embody has been having a birthday sale and it’s almost over! The sale ends June 1st and everything in the shop is half off. There are singles, couples and group poses, pose props and body shapes for everyone! There are model style poses, but my favorites are all the sports, dance, action poses and that sort of thing. Embody has all sorts of creative poses to choose from. The shapes are mod and come with two heights. I always think shapes should be mod, this way you can fit mesh clothing and bit by bit make the shape your own. I am using Embody’s May group gift shape, Summer. Since she was mod I was able to make a few small adjustments to fit my personal style (a little shorter, big hands and a smaller bust if you’re curious). Till the sale is over the group is only 49L to join and the gifts include a pose prop and male shape too.

My outfit has a bunch of things from Hellbop’s Retro Swap Meet. It’s set up similar to the Wash Cart Sale, and prices are just as low, 10L or under. There are photos of more items on the official blog. My favorite finds were at the Artilleri, The Stringer Mausoleum and Bliensen + MaiTai stands. The swap meet will run until June 6th.

Yum yum!

Eyes and hair from TSM, Earrings from Blinsen + MaiTai and Glasses and Top from Artilleri!

YAYviators!

Standard

Bilo’s Manal is a classy and sophisticated dress much too fancy for stumbling around early mornings with coffee in hand as my avatar is doing. But by the looks of her house she’s loaded and doesn’t care what she spills coffee on.

Here are front and back shots of  The Dome from reBourne, showcased at the Home and Garden Expo. Today is the last day of the Home and Garden Expo so go visit one last time if there’s anything you’ve missed! The Dome is sold unfurnished or furnished and includes features like window tinting, lights control and a texture change skybox.

Time for closeups! The [HANDverk ] Strand necklace and bracelets sets come in four bright color combos for the Stumblebum Color Block theme. They are still at the stumblebum reduced price but not for much longer. Both of my makeups are from Shakeup! Cosmetics, the Dolce Eyeshadow comes in a pack of 12 multicolor eyes and the Lara lips come in 21 colors with closed mouth and two teeth options for each. The Mayfly Liquid Light eyes in Early Autumn were just a perfect match for my outfit.

My hair is Exile’s latest at the Dressing Room Blue. I’ve tinted it a bit oranger to match a certain someone I’m trying to emulate. The candy colored Waterworks Aviators were a great match for my strand jewelry, I only had to decide on pink or yellow.

Orc’s H&G Expo Megapost Part 4 (The Garden)

Standard

Envision’s King of the Grill, Elite Version allows two cooks at once, one at the cutting board and the other at the grill. Touching the knife or spatula will give a wearable version. Touching the plates will give a choice of meats and silverware.

It also gives drinks of course. 🙂 It has animated steam and fire and a rez system for all the food prims and plates. Rez it all out for your party and derez to save on prims when the guests have gone.

Barnesworth Anubis’ catalina cabana and furniture pack are sold seperately and the chandelier lights turn on and off by touch.

BagLady Design has a few items I’d like to show. The Granny’s Garden Shed, Granny’s Well, Country Table and Chairs, Tree Of Herbs, Unconventional Storage (stacked boxes) and Recycled (a cute little wagon full of bottles, cans and coins).

The Kabuki ~ Spring Bench and Umbrella comes with poses for singles, friends and lovers. Here I’m showing off a few, one thing I love about these poses is that the books, popcorn and laptop props all rez when you select the pose instead of needing to be attached.

I’ve used some textures from Zwicked Textures as my background and floor. The textures are supposed to be for carpet, leather and fabric but I’ve put them on a giant wall. The result is…well…there is a reason why I’m a blogger and leave building to those with the skill for it. The textures are all seamless and besides the 3 RFL packs, 50% of all sales made at the Zwicked expo shop will also be donated.

Almost looks like a fashion blog again! 🙂

And here I’ve built a little room for this chair, “The Emperor’s Throne” from Alchemy Immortalis. I just didn’t have a place in my home for it but I really wanted to show it off! The pattern is based off the Blue Willow pattern usually found on china. It comes with 8 single sits and 4 couples animatios. It also rezzes pillow in the correct place according to what sit is used, and gives out tea.

Orc’s H&G Expo Megapost Part 3 (The House)

Standard

Part 1 and 2 were all about how I decorated the beach, the next posts will show my house and garden. The house I’m using is Designer Prims Little Beach House. This house was packed with furniture for all rooms and decorations like art, flowers and books for the shelf. Any item I don’t specifically name below comes with the house. Control panels change wall and floor textures, an easy way to get a totally different look to the house. The furniture that comes with the house is also texture change. I appreciate this because once I put something down I don’t usually like to adjust it too often but I still like variety.

Warm Animations – Relaxing Chair has several builts sit in that change on touch, and it’s mod so if you want you can change the color.

These benches are a mesh builders’ aid from Sculpty Republic. The bench comes with the 3 sets of textures, the UV map guide, the occlusion texture and the white wood texture.

Most of the living room comes with the house. The coffee table is by Prime and comes with rusty keys and a steaming cup of coffee with a fancy flower drawn in the creme. There is also a petite size version and the drawers are texture change. The art on the right is Idle- Peace by Ganymede Galaxy and it’s at the Gallery Giftshop.

The tree art on the wall is also from Prime, the rest of the kitchen comes with the house.

Here is another piece from The Gallery Giftshop. It’s called “The Gallery Gift Shop : Text ART On Canvas” and there are framed, unframed and lighted versions.

The hanging lamps turn on and off by touch, the beadspread and pillows are texture change and animations for single and couples are included.

The Silent Woods ‘Sita’ Recamier comes with 9 sits and lays looking to the left, to the right and 6 basic sits and lays. It also comes with an activity menu with animations for reading and drinking. Touching the pillow will give a folder of drinks and books to use with the animations. On the matching round Side Table I’ve set a coffee and the Silent Woods Livia blue vase with Orchid. The flowers can be bought as a fatpack of 8 colors for a RFL donation at the expo.

The Journey Chair from Prime comes with the umbrella, suitcases and open book.

The Thomas Coffee Table is a builder’s aid from Katy’s Kreations. On it are the Daisies in Pink Bottle from Sher’s Cottage Gardens. My chair is the ::WetCat:: “Floral” Couch, the seat and back can change textures seperately.

The Kwaisin Mantle Clock on the bathroom sink is from True North Designs.

More H&G Expo coming soon in part 4…! Grilling time with King of the Grill from Envision Prefabs.

Orc’s H&G Expo Megapost Part 2 (The Beach 2)

Standard

The Alchemy Immortalis – Chinese Peace Lantern Rezzer is one of the neatest things I have seen. From a single rezzed lamp, a circle of unlit lamps appears one by one, lighting after a moment and floating slowly up into the air. Because they begin their rise one by one, a spiral pattern is created. The lamps are temporary and physical, if you run into them you can knock them off their path and if you set the lantern on a hill the perfect spiral will be altered. I like this ability to interact with the lamps. Touching the rezzer lamp will turn lantern launching on and off.

The Alchemy Immortalis shop build at the expo is impressive. A path leads up towering black rocks and at the summit there is a lantern which will launch for a donation. A lovely, peaceful spot. Alchemy Immortalis also has an armchair RFL item, that I’ll be showing in part 3 or 4. :p

The <!WorN?> Moonflounder comes in vertical or horizontal versions, each with 3 built in poses. The flounder is glowy, with a realistic moon texture. He flaps his flippers and wiggles his tail in small subtle movements. Little bubbles or stars float out of his mouth and a glowy ring surrounds him, circling round and round. I always thought flounders were quite creepy with their two silly eyes on one side of the body, but this moonflounder hits just the right mark of creepy, beautiful and awesome. I imagine he is some sort of Fish God, he will eat you need a smiting but if you’re a friend go ahead and hang out.

Don’t eat me!

I got my friend Fox to help me out with the horizontal fish poses. I put koi fish from the .:buddhabeats:. Koi Pond in the water too. The fish have great textures and swim around realistically.

The cuddle pose is quite sweet.

The .:buddhabeats:. Koi Pond has a beautifully animated water texture of gentle rolling waves created by the circling fish. The koi are very detailed both in the shape and the texture. I want some giant ones to show them off more! There are three patterns and the little school of koi is included seperately in the package so you can fill your pond with as many fish as seems safe.

More H&G Expo coming soon in post 3…!

Orc’s H&G Expo Megapost Part 1 (The Beach 1)

Standard

Normally I would spread all this out but there isn’t any time! The Home and Garden Expo is giant and there are only a few days left to enjoy it. Couple that with my inability to choose a single angle and we have photo overload. The sad thing is none of my pictures really do this stuff justice. I would have to take a video to really show off the all the neat animations and scripting, but photos will have to do.

First a bit about my outfit, I built my look with items from The Gallery Giftshop. The mesh draped beach dress from 22769 has a matching shirt for males. My lashes from #7 and eyeliner and shadow from  [UMEBOSHI] as well as the drippy Milkcrown bracelets from DownDownDown are also Giftshop items.

Trompe Loeil has several new items out. The Tropical Beachside Bed is a 100% donation item. Other new releases include Mesh Palm Tree Megapack (48 trees), the Tropical Scoop Bed and the Tropical Rope Hammock.

The bottles here are from The Gallery Gift Shop – :NuDoLu Voyage: Lumiere de bouteille Matriochka

The Tropical Beachside Bed comes with the platform, rocks and two palm trees. The curtains, seats, and pillows are all texture change and the bed comes with 7 couples sits and 7 singles sits. There are also poses built into the deck.

The [ Organica ] RFL Pansys comes in 4 lovely shades of purple, for a special super low donation of just 20L for the set!

The Palm Tree Megapack has a variety of leaf and branch options as well as the tilt and style of trunk. I sprinkled them all over my beach and used them with the hammock which comes with a pair of trees too. The hammock comes with couples and singles poses and has texture change pillows that match the Beachside Bed. Yes I had fun trying out sunset windlights with the hammock! I totally felt as if I was on vacation here. 🙂

The Tropical Scoop Bed is built for two with all cushions and pillow texture change in the same color scheme. I didn’t notice it till writing this up actually! The roof of the bed will also retract for a more open look.

One of those items that is very hard to show in photos is the <!WorN?> Wanderin’ Whirlwind. They come in 3 sizes and include a menu that allow you to set the wander range and sound on or off. It’s impossible to capture in a photo but dust particles and fast twirling shapes give a great impression of a personal yard tornado.

Also from <!WorN?> is the Moonflounder. More info on that and Alchemy Immortalis – Chinese Peace Lantern Rezzer coming in part 2…!

Home and Garden Expo: HomeKraft Part 2

Standard

Because the post ended up being so big with all the poses and things I wanted to show, I’ve broken it into two parts. Part 1 is posted here.

The “heart u” bathroom set from HomeKraft is a poseprop room, but the props can all be used in a regular home bathroom if you want. Pieces include wall art, a rug, wearable lipstick and razor, a proverb stone that says things like “I hear and I forget; I see and I remember; I do and I understand” when you click it and all sorts of other things to put on a sink. The sink comes with a mirror and built in pose menu so that you can put on lipstick, shave your legs, grab fresh towls or leave a message for your sweetie in the steam.

Home and Garden Expo: HomeKraft + new at Bilo and Handverk Part 1

Standard

Homekraft is at the Home & Garden Expo with some fun stuff that I get to show! There are two RFL donation items, a couch and chair set “That Green Sofa” and “heart u” a photoprop room, both for a 400L donation. The Darla Treehouse, Gulf Breeze deck chairs, mission cube tables and a gatcha stocked with lamps, plants and more are just some of the other items to be found at Homekraft’s Expo area.

That Green Sofa set has 10 sofa textures, 7 pillow textures and 4 wooden leg options. A pose menu is built into each with male, female and unisex sits.

The Darla Treehouse is built on a gorgeous giant tree, with tiny white blooms growing from the branches. There is a climbable rope to get to the platform under the house where you can access the ramp up to the trapdoor in the floor. The front door of the house opens to a balcony with a rope railing. The door opens in two parts, top and bottom seperately and the building has sunlights all around where the walls meet the roof. Unique details like this make the house stand out, besides being well built and textured of course :p.

I decorated the tree house with art from The Gallery Giftshop. All of the art here was 40L or under, and many came with a trans version and a copy version so that you could give one away and keep one too. Also from the Giftshop are my May birthstone gemmed lashes by [ #7 ] and eyeshadow and liner by  [UMEBOSHI].

I have a few other Home & Garden Expo items to talk about. The coffee table by PRIME comes with a set of rusty keys and coffee for decoration and there is a petite size version as well. The Berkley Sideboard Sculpt set (blue shelf with the flowers on top) is a full perm builder’s aid by Katy’s Kreations.

Another builder’s aid is the picnic table which I have poorly textured (there is a reason I’m a blogger and not a builder!) with one of the textures from Zwicked’s Leather Textures Set 010. The Carpet and Fabric pack of textures from Zwicked are also RFL items and they are donating 50% of all sales made at the expo. At the base of the tree I’ve set a cute little dwarfs and wheelbarrow garden statue by Exquisite Eye Decorations. The dwarf even blinks his eyes. :>

My top is a new release from {bilo}, Firdous Kurta. There are 12 colors to choose from for 195L each. The shape is just perfect, the wrinkes are subtle but add so much realism. I also love the light pattern on the fabric and the bright colors of the collar. To match I’m wearing high waist shorts from  22769, released at culture shock they can also be found at the main store. My geode ring is Handverk’s Mesh Around hunt gift. Mesh Around will run from June 1-15th and is an all mesh themed hunt organized by The Ego Co.

Orc Visits the Gallery Gift Shop May

Standard

I love the Gallery Gift Shop! Look at some lovely art, bring some home, and pick up a gift or two for a friend as well. I’ve said it before but I really enjoy art in Second Life. In a way, everything in SL is a sort of art. Everything is handmade, but there is still something special about a virtual canvas, a framed work of art or a statue that I can’t explain. Around the building and garden there are art pieces, many are for sale and not expensive at all, from 0-100L. The items for sale in the gift shop are reduced price and transfer. It’s also a nice opportunity to get a transfer item from shops that usually don’t offer them.

My dress, lashes and eyeshadow here are all from The Gallery Gift Shop. The Elora II dress is by Evie’s Closet and includes the wings and an armband (which I forgot to wear). Not only that, but it turns out I was only wearing the underskirt for these photos, so the bodice has an extra detail of ruffles attached to the overskirt that isn’t shown here! 🙂  By the way, there is a marketplace sale going on for Evie’s Closet petite dresses.

The eyeshadow and liner are both from [UMEBOSHI] and are included in a pack of six colors of shadow and two eyeliners. A nice touch with this set is the inclusion of 2 extra copy/no trans eyeliners which are tintable while the rest of the set is transfer including the two eyeliners. So if you end up gifting this to a friend you’ll still get to have a little something for yourself.

I’m wearing two of the three lashes currently for sale by [ #7 ]. If you want to see these inworld, the vendors actually have the lashes rezzed on their faces, so that’s quite a neat way to preview them. The Individually Primmed lashes are just that, each lash is a single piece, so you have maximum control on the shape and can adjust each prim to perfect placement with patience. Though I didn’t need to adjust these for my eyes, and wearing a bit of eyeliner and shadow can help too. The other set of lashes are much fancier, not every day lashes but something that really stands out. The Laced lashes are floaty white and black curlyque lines, almost like stylized smoke or vines. A perfect fit with the vines on the collar of the Elora dress I think.

The amazing building I’m using as a set is from *~ by Nacht, it’s one of the exclusives for World Goth Fair which is running till the end of the month. A cortyard lined with archways and columns, some of them broken and crumbling with a fountain in the center that has a giant spiderweb. To find a direct surl to the shop check out the WGF blog  here .
