Unmissable.

FATESALE

I’ve only just heard about this fat discount sale so I’m literally just going to rehash an old photo and then as soon as I can get inworld I’ll be over there like a shot for that Dr Who outfit I’ve been wanting for ages.

Although I don’t think FATEwear is overpriced especially when when you see not only the quality of the texturing but also the fit and a lot of his packs contain so many layers and options to mix and match your outfit I think his stuff is a bargain but even more so with this 50% discount.  So for all of you who have been waiting you have until the 10th to pop over and grab some goodies.

Is this your thing?

The latest offering from FATEwear is the Survivalist look and was an opportunity for me to go to one of the best RP sims in SL.  The Wastelands is a vast collection of sims packed with ruins, hidden bunkers, swamps, fighitng arenas,  homes and hidden abodes scattered about.  A dedicated RP sim however a not an unfriendly sim to the lonely wanderer.  Obviously if you turn up in a pink sparkly dress, fairy wings and a tiara you may not be asked to leave but if you fire off anything other than the free combat weaponry you can get at the Landing place then you will be asked to leave.  In all my years of loitering around the Wastelands sims the one thing I notice is how many loner runners you see.  People just running around the sim it’s almost like RL when people jog to relax.  So a thriving RP sim but one that also allows you to be completely alone.

Damien Fate has a new set of clothing out based on the World Famous TV program, The Walking Dead and I have to confess I know nothing  about this program. OK I do know some very basic stuff which is the main character, the one who wears the sheriff’s hat, has gone from being totally hot to desperately needing a shave, bath and a couple of hours on a Psycho’s couch, his annoying wife finally died in agony and their son looks like a stand in for the kid from the Omen films.  Then there is a woman with a permanently shaved head and one with dreads, an old man and a twink and then there is Boone the hottest bit of rough you ever want to see.  So in honour of this program Damien has brought out 3 new outfits.  The one I’m wearing is very much based on the character Boone with the layering and the rough worn look of the clothing.

The pants are also included and you have a choice of 3 textures (Alternative, Dark, Origional and I’m wearing the Alternative texture)and it’s called Reed.  One of the other new outfits is for the Dread locked lady (I googled images) and it’s a vest top and pants with a rough sack like hood and that one is called Danai.  The third outfit is for a more conservative man.  Pants, quilted vest. rolled up shirt sleeves and I have no idea of who the inspiration for this outfit was but it’s called Morris.

Although Damien is almost all casual or dressy outfits he does have a small and excellent RP section.  I have the Jason outfit from the Halloween films and he has both male and female costumes from the Harry Potter films and the best looking Dr Who outfit I’ve seen.  Pretty soon I will get around to blogging the cape I’ve had for months from here. Dramatic and subtle as well so perfect for RP or just making a statement.

High, Med, Low.

faterap

Although I’ve just bought a great pair of trousers from SF Designs as soon as I tried the latest  demo on from FATEwear I had to get these.  Not too much into the low rider look but this pair of pants called Peter and comes in 3 fits,high, med and the low pair I am wearing in this picture (and of course all the standard mesh fit sizes).  Low enough to be sexy but not so low as to be nasty.  A choice of colours and I chose the Quagmire. Comes in a corduroy texturing which you can see more clearly in the next picture.

Gun

Ladies don’t ignore the latest Men Only Gacha event going on.  For those who you love in SL I’m pretty sure that there is plenty of gifts that he will be happy to received and of course since this is a Gacha event then everything is trans (just not copy) and these guns would be perfect.  I say guns because in one Gacha you get a left and right thigh strapped gun and in another Gacha a gun that fits down the front of your clothes or the back each Gacha costs 100 but the detailing in these weapons is excellent and since you get 2 in each set then you can have one each (they fit Zan as well) so his and her weapons.  The landmark I have given you should take you to the actual Obscure Gacha Machine but if it doesn’t then you will find this and other Gachas on the upper level.  Plenty of other things for yourself or your partner from skins, clothes, accessories etc and all at really discounted prices.

PS when you land at Fate island (the name of his sim) in front of you is Damian’s costume/role playing shop but turn to your right and go up the stairs to his larger main shop for the more classic suits and leisure wear.

Its Fate

FATEwear & ArisAris
I gave Player a giftcard for Christmas (boring, yes I know !) It was for Fatewear (not so boring now huh?!) We don’t get to go shopping together often, like once or twice a year. Off we went, and twenty minutes later I remembered WHY we don’t shop together often ! I think its easy to forget when you change clothes,shapes & skins many times a day that it can really be a minefield for those that are kinda new to the whole mesh revolution. Dont get me wrong, Player has worn mesh for over a year but he rarely buys a lot. Soooooo there we are, Player trying on demos and getting irritable about fitting it. I suggested he tweak his shape a teeny bit – WRONG thing to say to a guy.  Ohmaiii – you’d think I had suggested he invade Greece or something – so the moaning went on, I was close to logging out and leaving him too it – when I stepped back, bit my tongue and recalled my horror of changing my own shape for mesh gear. It seems a big ask – shapes are so personal, its YOU in SecondLife. Anywayyy cut a long story short – he tweaked his shape ever so slightly (so slightly I couldnt detect it to be honest) and voila! Most everything fitted. He bought heaps and heaps and even returned alone to buy MORE. His latest purchase was the Dave outfit above, I totally adore it, actually Baylen blogged it when it was released, both look gorgeous in it I have to say.

FATEwear mesh socks

I slipped into a new release from ArisAris, sweater dress with a big cable knit pattern down the front – tres chic! The socks are also from FATEwear, there is a longggg story about why we were both delighted that Player got these wooly socks, I wont bore you with it, as you REALLY had to be there ! (It involved a dodgy teleport on our sim and someone stuck on a sex bed wearing big wooly socks – nuff said) In the sock pack you get differing lengths, and they look SO realistic . We cried tears of laughter at being able to FINALLY recreate that teleport moment *winks*.

It’s Fate(Dave)wear.

CoatintrepidNew to FATEwear is a much appreciated HUD which even to a simple soul like myself is easy to use.  With this hud you now have a much greater variety of colour choices.  Basically this means you can change the colour of almost everything you wear and I was rereading the description of how the HUD works and noticed this “The HUD will most likely be set by default to the proper tab and options for the FATEpack you purchased, but you can actually use the same HUD for all FATEpack items that come with a scripted version of the product.”  So basically if you have other items of clothing from FATEwear and it’s scripted then you should be able to change the colour.  Personally I can’t wait to see what I have and try it out.

CoatsSo of course you get all the sizes, (a good way to cut down on your invent is to delete the sizes you know you will never use but make sure you know that you won’t want that XXL or XS at a later date) and of course you get the layering which in this case is the long jacket, pants and the shirt jacket tie combo underneath.  This of course allows you to mix and match from items already in your invent.  The hud that now comes with this outfit attached itself to the bottom right hand of your screen which if your AO is there will remove it but it’s easy to reposition the hud anywhere on your screen so that s not exactly an issue.  So easy to use and you have such a big choice of colours  each item can be coloured individually.  So in the 2 pictures the same clothes but different colour choices.

Just spotted this in the note that comes with “Dave”, thats what this new outfit is called, and although I’ve not had time to test it out but it’s going to be interesting to see what else I have from FATEwear that I can use this on.

BeachVanity shot.  As always I popped over to Derailed to preen and pose.  A lovely and welcoming sim.  Everytime I visit and I visit a lot there is something new such as this cabin/stable/home.  Plenty of photo and pose potential or of course just a place to hang out with some friends.  There is a shop on the sim which is well worth a visit for some great poses (I have them all) and a selection of interesting odds n sods.

Tell no lie.

As I said as soon as I rezzed inworld right in the middle of FATEware and right in the middle of the sale I started to buy.

suitYou really need to try the demos to see what it is you get because some of the packs not only come with all the sizes as standard but so many layering options it’s really hard to describe (at 9.20AM and full of cold that is).

long coatThis long ..duster style coat is a prime example because you can wear it on it’s own or as in this case with the shirt and tie inc in the pack.

Gloves

OK I stuck to the more safer colours of greys and browns but there is a range of colours to chose from.  Sorry I would try to take a better photo of the gloves and would have loved to have taken one of the socks but RL time restraints means I haven’t had the time and the time on this sale is running out.  If you like the idea of SLinks hands but don’t like the expense or the skin matching then these gloves are perfect.  Again I picked a safe shade but there is not only a variety of shades but also some more “wintery knitted” style ones.  The icing on the cake is you get a whole load of hand poses from casual to holding and the price is slashed to 150Lds.  So good Zan is comming in to try out the demo and see if the XS size will look good on her.  It’s the same with the socks they come with feet shapes in them and of course plain for wearing with non SLink or any mesh shoe.  Winter, bedsocks also available.ShirtLast photo before I take myself back to bed (I haz a cold) but I wanted to show off the slim line look.  Obviously the bulked up shoulders and “manly” chest are big in SL but so is the more natural look which is one I prefer.

Sale is in full swing but the clock is ticking.

Breaking the rules.

Faith doesn’t have many rules but the one which I am breaking is blogging something that is a demo, but my excuse is I’m waiting for the FATEwear, FATEplay and Cold Logic 48 hour sale to start before I start to grab as many of the brilliant Damian Fate’s clothes that I can afford.

FateSo I’ve logged off standing in Fatewear because it is Monday and when I relog back in I should be right in the middle of the sale and I have my shopping list all prepaired.

As I’ve said this is just for 48 hours so don’t be late.
