POE6 – More Mens Fashion
So much great fashion for us gents on the POE 6 Hunt! Here’s my second post for menswear, it’s well worth hunting
69 Park Avenue is a well established MensWear shop. Designer, Silexe Core, has given us this winter outfit. Three mesh items – coat, jeans and scarf plus one alpha for the lot. Even socks are included so we don’t get our tootsies frozen!
Dot-Be by designer, BonieFacio Boucher, includes a delightful unpacking animation with his hunt gift which I’m sure will bring a smile to the weary hunter’s face! A great double sleeved shirt here, with the peace logo on it. Very useful wardrobe item. I used the L size from the 5 standard sizes. (watch by Robbish)
Orquidea by adriannesuz McMinnar is a vintage and modern clothing provider which I’m ashamed to say I haven’t come across until now. The hunt gift is a smashing set of clothing layer basic rib knit sweaters in black, chocolate and dark red. There’s a tattoo layer included to prevent any imperfections in the clothing layers – excellent. You’ll get a lot of wear out of these beauties. On top of the sweater is NerdMonkey’s gift – an extensive set of winter fisherman’s rib knit scarves. Extremely easy to stretch to size, the colours include black, cyan, pink, red and yellow. I’ll be using these a lot! (Sunday Jeans in black by by sf design, hair [monso] Jay in black/brown)
Citrus by SissyMo Morrison’s gift is this great double sleeve tshirt and low chucks which are great for tight jeans and shorts as worn here. The tshirt is the standard 5 sizes, I took size L, and the chucks have a resizer with delete option. I loved the Peace texturing on this set I’m also wearing the Clinton Flatcap which is part of Xen’s Hats hunt gift. This stylish hat has a resizer with delete option – brilliant!
I loved this hathair by ChiChickie! Hair Salon. So many textures, both for the hat and the hair via a HUD that also had a tinting facility on it. A really useful and versatile gift here. A chic Mesh shirt/jacket combo isB&W’s hunt gift. Designer, Ayrton Radikal, gives us consistantly good work and this gift is no exception. The gift is offered in the standard 5 mesh sizes, I took a size L here, and Ayrton includes a notecard with recommended sizing for a perfect fit. The cute Japanese ‘Peace and Love’ bag comes in tan and blue canvas shades and includes a ‘hold bag’ animation that doesn’t override whatever else you have on. Wonderful and thank you, designer Uklea of LavandaChic. (winter jeans in bone by GlamDammit)
All poses except for the Tuxedo ones are by the lovely Wicca Merlin for Wicca’s Wardrobe. A new set coming up – ‘Gravity’ and an older set, ‘Redneck at Work’ are featured. Wicca knows what poses work for bloggers and models alike! Don’t forget to collect the ‘Angelic’ poses in the POE6 hunt gift.
Now, two smart suits. We’re all going to need at least one of these in our SL lives, both for our own formal functions and also to attend our friend’s special occasions! The first one is the hunt gift of Innuendo Italian Style. By designer, Francesca Bonetto, this classic Italian tuxedo suit comes in one complete Mesh piece and one alpha so it couldn’t be easier or quicker to dress up! Click, click and you’re ready The little Christmas Tree brooch is by GDit Jewelry and is texture change for 4 useful metals. Moz slaved over this (lol) so go and get it!

Second suit by Allie Munro of Grumble. Allie gives us a charcoal jacket and pants plus a shirt and tie combo. These are separates in the standard 5 sizes and fit nicely. I like to wear a size M shirt with a size L jacket over the top and a size M pants underneath. That seems to work really well as far as fitting goes. A great suit – thank you, Allie
Phew, I think that’s enough for now as my computer disappears in a haze of steam. Cheers, m’dears!
POE6 – parte uno
A return to blogging for me after a bit of a break! We all need those sometimes.
The Peace on Earth Hunt, run by the redoubtable Sequoia, is the oldest and most popular hunt in Second Life. It runs from December 1, 2013 through January 6, 2014. I’ve been a hunter in the last three, a designer in the last two and a blogger in this hunt, the sixth version. Going to attempt to showcase the furniture and men’s clothing which I’m sure won’t fit into one post so this is part one.
I am loving the gifts in POE6, the designers have been very generous and produced work of an excellent standard. The furniture is amazing and you’ll be able to furnish your home with a lot of Christmas cheer!
A beautiful screen by SequoiaStyle LI 15, and when you ‘sit’ on the carpet the body is held in ‘dressing pose’ which is suitable for adjustments to apparel and jewelry – ingenious! By the side is the Louis XVI Style Gilt-Bronze Mounted Mahogany Cabinet in the Manner of Adam Weisweiler, by Malaspina Productions (wing of Joyous Living Store). This ornate cabinet is only LI 2 and has pictures on all three facing sides.
Park Place – Home and Hearth Fireplace by DeAnn Dufaux. The fireplace and tools are separate so you can use those after the holiday season. There’s a mantle picture, three candles, a poinsettia and a garland with lights to add. All low prim for a very nice display! The fire animation can be clicked on and off.
Ishtari Design Concepts by Alyssa Warden, has given us this stylish mesh set entitled, ‘Vintage Holiday’. Total LI 16 you get a lot of chic for your house! I really liked this set and appreciated the attention to detail. There’s a working radio which you can touch to choose the music.
True North Designs brings us a piano for LI 9 - wonderful! As is typical with a traditional player piano, one doesn’t actually need to sit down and play – it can play all by itself! However, there is a piano playing animation in the cushion on the stool, so anytime you want to sit down and show off your amazing ivory tickling skills, you can Comes with 4 play modes and various tunes. Thank you, Dellybean!
Zen Creations Tree Scene by Zhoie Zimermann – lots of parts to this set, with the cutest of animations. Touch the tree or the pillow pile and you’ll soon be relaxing and writing Christmas cards and tying up presents!
Last but not least is a wondrous tree by caLLie cLine. She calls it the caLLiefornia grown peace tree. The dove has subtle animated sparkles and you can remove him or her to use in your home all year round as a symbol of peace. The stylish white bag can also be used elsewhere.
I think that’s all for this post so get your hunting boots on
