Rowne

Rowne

Rowne is a new store co-owned by Fashionboi Landar and Justice Topaz with Couleur Latoe joining as part of the design team. Rowne will feature clothing, accessories, and hair but they’ve opened up the doors today with a capsule collection, which features essential items that are timeless; meant to be updated with seasonal pieces so you can continue to wear them throughout the year.

All of the details and updates can be found on RowneSL.com and you can also follow Rowne on Facebook.

Rhapsody, the music themed event by The Hottie Cooterati Experience, also opened its doors today. Check out their flickr group to see all of the musical items available. The fun pose prop I’m using is from Hopscotch currently available at Rhapsody. This prop comes with a multitude of poses, not just for one person but groups as well, and they’re all unisex. Really well done! Grab the Rhapsody SLurl and head down there now!

By the way, I picked up the SLink mesh body and have been playing around with it and I do like it quite a bit, however I did have some issues with it that’s why I’m not wearing it in this post. For some reason, I couldn’t get the SLink mesh hands to fit with the body, there was a gap in between them. Now I know this must be something I’m doing wrong because I am pretty sure they would fit together so I need to take some time to fiddle with that more and figure out why I’m getting a gap. (UPDATE: A few lovely people poked me to tell me that I need to wear the XS hands with the body and that should fit perfectly, so I did and it worked, no more gap! Check out this link for full details about the SLink Physique.)

I do like the quality and the way it all works but looking forward to see how it improves even more and what kinds of appliers people create for them as I saw the tattoo and clothing applier sections in the HUD. It is similar to the WoWMeh body that I have, but now I hear that one is no longer available due to some DMCA issues. I haven’t tried the mesh project body from the skin shop yet, but I did like the way it looked in Kiddo Oh’s comparison image on flickr:

It’s really interesting to see the market explode with all these mesh parts. I imagine a year from now our avatars will be looking quite different with all the updates and changes. Have you tried any of the mesh attachments as of yet?

Freedom

All that’s left is solitude and the desires in my heart. I won’t be around for most of June because I’m going away to places I’ve never been before. I’ve been a mix bag of emotions so far this year (or perhaps always?) and I wanted a change. So I’m travelling across the ocean to […] Continue reading →

Before I talk about what I’m wearing in these images, I just wanted to update you guys on the new pricing for SL Go. Since my last post about SL Go, the folks at OnLive have put a lot of thought into the pricing that they initially offered and have decided to add some more […] Continue reading →

The Spring Season Challenge

(click here for raw shot) Tomorrow is April 1st and this month always reminds me of spring; probably because of the old saying, “April showers bring May flowers.” I thought this week would be perfect to do a spring challenge. Meme Instructions: Share a spring-themed picture and/or answer the following questions about the season. Don’t […] Continue reading →
