Steam it up

Steam it up

Happy Saturday, FabFolks! Thank heavens we made it to the weekend! It’s time to play and for me that means on the Grid. And one of my favorite things to RP is Steampunk. I love the clothes, the aesthetic, the … well, everything!

Steamy

The Rack @ Steaming Ahead is feeding my Victorian obsession today with their free gift for the Third Life Group. This is the “Toreador Jacket” and the members of the Third Life Group can pick it up for free when you wear your tag. The Third Life Group is only 10L to join and it’s Linden well spent. While you’re at Steaming Ahead, check out all the Hunts and the great Steampunk items.

Sizes Included

  • Classic Mesh – XS – XL

Topping it off

Since I was feeling all punkish, I figured my hair should get steamed too. I went through my hair collection and figured I’d just pop on some goggles and call it good. Then I thought, “Check the Marketplace?” And I scored with this great monocle and top hat hair style from EMO-tions (Marketplace) for only five little Lindens; “Mono.” It is an older building style but you do get the full fatpack. Plus, each piece of the style is wearable separately. So if the hair doesn’t tickle you, you can wear just the monocle or just the hat.

Guest Blog By Geoffrey Edwardstone – ARE YOU ANTISOCIAL OR JUST AN ALIEN IN CYBERSPACE? …

One of the great things about SL is that you can always find things that are unusual or just make you laugh, and there are a couple of hunts going on this month where you can find prizes that fall in this category.  One example is the Aliens in Cyberspace Hunt (AiC) which runs during the month of May with 45 stores participating and offering free gifts for both men and women.  You can get hints and SLURLs at the hunt blog.

For starters let me show you my new shiny latex FitMesh Men’s Theless Top, the hunt gift from MadCatCreations
MCC - Fitmesh Men's Theless Top_AiC_Hunt

This top is an example of the new “fitmesh” or “liquid mesh” capability in clothing that some FabFree readers were asking about in a recent FabFree Advice column.  Creating fitmesh clothing requires a different kind of mesh file than the ones the designers are used to using, and I imagine we will be seeing a lot more of it as the designers switch over.  The best part of fitmesh is that it moves with your body.  You don’t get bits of your body poking through when you change poses like sometimes happens with traditional mesh clothing.  Sorry ladies, you won’t see any more of my gorgeous, blue-lipped alien skin as long as I’m wearing fitmesh.

Also available in the AiC Hunt are the mesh Prometheus Porter’s Jacket (pants not included) from {Reverie}.  This is a jacket that can be a staple of your wardrobe even when you’re not in cyberspace.

Reverie_AiC_Hunt

[Goddess Couture]  has not just one, but three AiC hunt prizes.  The male hunt gift there is this open mesh jacket with alien t-shirt. (pants are not included).  This cute little R2D2 robot is the unisex gift, and you can hold onto it or just use as a bit of decor.

Goddess_AiC_Hunt

Where you would you need space robot decor, you ask?  Well you’d need it in your own inter-galactic spacecraft, of course.  And where would you go to get such a spacecraft?  You’d have to find the AiC hunt prize at Steaming Ahead.  For your trouble you’ll get this giant pink bug spacecraft complete with shiny chrome legs and wings.  Roomy inside with the requisite array of dials and knobs, it seats the pilot plus three passengers, and holds a whole bunch of cargo.

For those more earthbound and socially inept, there is the Antisocial Web Hunt (:A.W.H:) which runs from May 1 to June 1. You can find the SLURLs and hints at the hunt website.  If sometimes wish you could just pull a brown paper bag over your head and be anonymous, the AWH has just the gift for you.  Although this hunt gift was shown earlier in another FabFree guest blog entry , I wanted to show you [geek]’s  hunt gift — the Not Here Paper Bag in an appealing shade of brown which coordinates perfectly with your entire wardrobe.   [geek] has thoughtfully provided a headset with the bag so that you can keep yourself amused while you’re trying to look inconspicuous.  I’m also wearing Gye Nyame tatoo, which is the :A.W.H: hunt gift from [Letis Tattoo] .  Personally, I’ve never found wearing body ink to be antisocial, but I’m not objecting to get a cool arm tatoo from the Antisocial Web Hunt.
