Make Him Over

As you might have guessed, I’ve been out and about, trying to do the Make Him Over hunt that started last week. I haven’t been able to get all the way through it yet but I have found a few goodies to show you here.

The first picture is a mix of a few gifts. The hair is from Shag and is called Black Jack. A wicked little wavy kinda mohawk that you get in two colours: powder and shadow. There is a colour changeable streak that runs through this ‘do and there is a huge amount of tints to choose from. The Stomp glasses are from Kumaki Glasses Style and have a large amount of fabulous options in the menu and there is also a Nylon Belt Watch included in this gift! The shirt is from Sartoria and as you’d expect from them, it is just too cool. Great design, it comes on multiple layers and has well-fitting sleeves and body prim. The jeans are Poison’s entry into the hunt and are fabulous. The Dos70 jeans come in two different waist heights: one normal and one lower plus some sweet looking sculpted cuffs, the texture is gorgeously done and has some wonderful creases around the waist and backs of the knees. You can find all these brilliant gifts by following the links below:

Hair: Shag
Glasses: Kumaki Glasses Style
Shirt: Sartoria
Jeans: Poison

Next is the hunt prize from Hermony. You get two for one with this gift as it contains both the Oversized Beanie as well as the NRD Tanktop. I was super pleased to get another one of these beanies as I like them a lot, with there being two copies for different attachment points you can wear this with a hair of your own or you can use the tattoo layer hairbase that comes with it like I have. The tanktop has a great look, I love the neon greeny colour of the image against the black of the tank itself. This also comes with a sculpted body part to give it that extra bit of awesomeness.

A couple of more gifts to finish off for today and it seems I found another hairstyle, this time from **Dura**. This is quite a different style to what I’m used to and, to be honest, it took a few minutes for me to get my head around it(it also helped that I finally got it sized right too!) but once I had, thenI started to like it. The MHO Limited Hair comes in a script resizer version and one with no such script. The Bicolor tee is from Acid & Mala Creations and is superbly casual (great for wearing with those jeans I mentioned earlier). It comes on all different layers and features lovely looking sculpted sleeves and the bottom of the shirt.

You can find these two gifts here:
Hair: **Dura**
Shirt: Acid & Mala Creations

I would say that all of these items I’ve shown here are definite must-gets and that’s barely scratching the surface of the massive hunt (there is something like 160 stores to go through!).

49er Style

No, I’m not talking about the American football team, I’m talking about the 5th installment of the week-long event known as the ’49 L Sale for Dudes’. This event started on March 18 and will end midnight SLT, Saturday 25 March. It features a great line up of stores including SF Design, *FIR*, KMadd, Adjunct and more. Today I’ve thrown together a few items from three of the participating stores: Acid & Mala, [Shag] and Zoobong.

The hair and hat come from [Shag] and is called ‘Depp Redux’. It’s a great looking long style that comes in three colours: Kitten, Cashmere and Bistere (which I’m wearing here). The goes well with the hair and the best thing is how well it fits, I don’t like to fiddle with fitting hair too much so I was glad I didn’t have to.

The shirt and sweater combo from Acid & Mala is the ‘Argyle V-neck sweater’. It’s absolutely gorgeous, I’m loving the colour and texture of it. You can choose to wear just the sweater by itself (and on multiple layers) if you wish but I like the look of the shirt underneath it. The shirt collar comes with a resizer script and the sweater cuffs finish it all off nicely.

Last but not least are the ‘Franco’ jeans from Zoobong. Wonderfully creased and slightly faded blue jeans, they are very well done. They come with good-looking, bunched cuffs and a handy alpha layer that makes fitting them that much easier. The ‘Franco’ jeans also come on the underwear layer.

Of course, all the items in the 49 L Sale for Dudes are…L$49. It’s a great event and well worth travelling around to each and every store, you’ll find some great gear. You can find a complete list of the stores plus SLURLs here: http://49lsalefordudes.wordpress.com/

Better Late Than Never

Oops, I’ve been a little late on the L$49 Sale for Dudes and for that, I apologise. However, the good news is that you still have just a little over 24 hours left to collect some seriously cool gear from the participating stores. I’ve run around like a madman and picked up a few of them items but that’s barely scratched the surface of this great event.

In the picture above you can see ‘Misfit’ hair from [Shag] which is their offering for this event. Like all the hair they have there it’s very cool. I don’t normally go for the eye-covering fringes but this hair looks good enough to make me change my mind and it also comes in three different colours: cashmere, fever and bistere (shown in the picture). Also in the above picture is the ‘Devoted’ tattoo from KoQstar. I’d never visited this store before but I like my tattoos so I went and checked it out. It’s very nicely done and comes on that handy viewer 2 tattoo layer (as well as a shirt and undershirt layer as well). Definitely a store I’ll be going back to.

In the picture below is the ‘Innocence’ eyes from KMadd. If I’ve got it right, there are many different colours to choose from for the L$49 Sale for Dudes event but I picked out the Birds tail colour because I like eyes with different hues and these were the ones that stood out for me.

So, as I said, this is just barely scratching the surface of this event. There are a whole lot more stores involved including SF Design, Shiki, Ducknipple and Bellies. For the full list of stores involved, check out their blog here: http://49lsalefordudes.wordpress.com/2011/01/16/49-l-sale-for-dudes-event-4/ where you can also get the SLURLs for all the other participating stores. Just remember, it all ends midnight SL time tomorrow so hurry hurry!
