Men's Clothes at Kal Rau

Shopping for men's clothes is always a challenge - fashion tends to fall into a few staid categories - steroidal bouncer, emo kitty, urban hoody grunge, blingy playa, and preppy rainbow bright. It can be really hard to find a designer who avoids these ruts, but thanks to Ben Vanguard's SLMen blog, I found a good prospect today. Kal Rou's eponymous store in La Fortuna 2 has a very nice selection of men's clothes. Tweedy, sporty, preppy, collegiate, surfer, along with some out of the ordinary options like capri pants for men. Prices are reasonable, some of the items come with scripted menus for fitting, and multi layer options help to avoid those awkward clothing gaps. The sculpted collars and cuffs are especially well done - a very nice find!

Knockout at Pixeldolls

I logged in tonight, and got a notecard from Pixeldolls, a new dress named "Knockout".  Thinking that I must already have it, as I spent a barrelful of Lindens there the other night buying many of her latest dresses, I almost deleted this one.  But no, I didn't have it, and it's aptly named.  

Knockout features a tea-length to full-length dress, a lacy overlay bodice with off the shoulder sleeves, a mildly plunging sweetheart neckline, a multi-tiered flexi prim beaded and fishnet lace skirt, over fishnet stockings.  Flirty yet prim, it reminds me somewhat of the Erte styles - draping and beading and elegance.  Just lovely.  Comes in five colors - blue, red, brown, pink, and of course, black.  And, only 100 L$ each.  At that price, the decision is easy.

The Guild Visits SL

World2Worlds hosted a live event in their Seaside Theatre tonight featuring some of the cast from the interweb series "The Guild".  Felicia Day who plays "Codex", Sandeep Parikh who plays "Zaboo", and Jeff Lewis who plays "Vork" were in attendance.  Their avatars were created by Rissa Maidstone of World2Worlds, and were modeled on their gamer avatars as played by their actors in the series, or as Felicia Day puts it a "meta-meta-meta thing."The actors themselves may be very familar to many, if you haven't heard of "The Guild".  From "Buffy" (Day) to "The Groundlings" (Lewis) to "Dr. Horrible" (Day) to "EffinFunny (Parikh) to "that Cheetos commercial" (Day).   Mitch Wagner, the Copper Robot was the able moderator for tonight's event.

Season Three of "The Guild" will premiere this summer, and word has it they may have a machinima project within SL upcoming with World2Worlds.

Looking around at the b-places site I found the beautiful medieval sim Aglarond.  It's an RP Sim, medieval clothing is required, and no flying unless you're a winged creature.  

Of course I managed to find the library right away.  

The ballroom is lovely - the stained glass windows are very well done and the place has the aura of twinkling stars inside.  
Aglarond has many places to explore.  I tried to find my way to the mushroom garden, but that takes a bit of negotiating walkways and rope bridges and walls and such that will have to wait for another time.  A very complicated build, there are plenty of areas to explore, it's a lovely sim.

Sale at Pixel Dolls

Grab your Lindens and head on over to Pixel Dolls on Port Seraphine (147,26,257)for a massive outfit sale. Some of Nephilaine Protagonist's classic outfits are about to be retired. Pixel Dolls is noted for their retirement sales - this is your last chance for some of the most beautiful clothing in SL. What I love about Pixel Doll's separates is that it's so easy to mix and match them - they're like upscale Garanimals. Her blacks are delicious and consistent over the years - she uses unique and vivid colors and includes multiple layers and options in her outfits. So many options that you can layer her things with nearly any designer in world and come up with something uniquely you.

Pixel Dolls was one of the first designers whose offerings I followed religiously in (mumble, mumble) 2004, and I've been a faithful customer since. So much so that it doesn't even bother me to see outfits I bought way back then for $L150 now on sale for $L10 and $L50. They hold up over time - even some with system skirts from the ancient times - and she's been a groundbreaker in textures and colors and layer experimentation - always pushing new limits. Sorry to be such a fangirl, but I honestly do love her stuff.

See you there!
