The new Mens Dept might, or not be even better when you've been riding the dragon, but even without being high there's still some stunning stuff to be found. One of them is most certainly 22769's contribution, the mesh Dandy Jackets, that come in 4 different patterns: dragon (shown in the picture), brocade, flames and peacock. You can wear them as is or combine them with one of the 6 'shirtlets' that are also included in the pack to achieve the look seen in the image above. Just note that the shirts cannot be worn alone, and as usual, make sure to grab a demo to check if one of the provided 5 sizes fits you.

Their whispers wandered through the cave. Slight questions and answers were exchanged then finally not only their hands touched but also the wyrms they carried on their heads. Informations flew from one to an other. And they were one again.
Dragonbreed II
Being apart was always a pain for them and so were the moments when they met again. Akalaia the female one had not managed to stand the pain and fallen onto the soft wet ground so that her companion had to help her up again. He felt weak himself but tried to force himself not to feel the pain because he knew that she would feel it too which would make everything way worse.

Dragonbreed I It was surprising enough that they still were alive. Ages ago when their kin and the wyrms had managed to nearly kill each other they decided to have ambassadors who would be both wyrm and Nyroyama. So each year the most sensitive children were choosen and forced to unite their mind with a wyrm. Most of them did not survive, the shock of feeling an other mind in their mind was too much for them, others who survived the first shock were not able to stand the pain the foreign thoughts created in them. The feeling of bathing in fire and swimming in lava was nothing they were able to deal with. But some of them managed to realize that the wyrms were forced as they were and managed to find a way to communicate with them. Not that they were able to teach anybody. Every connection was unique. Those were the ones who became ambassadors between the Nyroyama and the Wyrms. Sometimes like in their case they connected somehow to one of those who went through the time of the first massive pain with them. Not that they ever were alone together. The wyrms never left them.Dragonbreed III
Xoph does not only create the best tentacles in second life. They also normaly take part in the twisted hunt. This time their huntgift is an awesome mix of a dragon and horns. It looks like a bonedragon would be sitting on the head between two impressive horns. The item is resizeable and the set contains a set for normal avatars and one for petites.
At Xoph you actually do not have to search for the twisted cube. You need to solve a ride which includes finding totems which give you some answers. At the end you need to find somebody whom you tell those answers and who gives you the huntgift in exchange. It is fun and there are some cool items to play with in the store. And who wouldn't like falling through a tunnel of lava or to find a path through disappearing stepstones?
RokumeikaN also takes part in this hunt. Their gift is a complete outfit called Knight of Darkness. It suits men as well as women. All primparts have a resizescript, the textures are very well made.
An other great hunt started today. Finding Fab free celebrates 5 years of the FabFree Blog and many stores take part in this. For example A:S:S who made a dragonskin tattoo layer and dragon eyes (made of mesh) as hunt gifts.

Fish and Cats... almost.

Here, as promised, the final two skins from the new   S u g a r  line. I hope you love em.

Siren's Lust

cane sirens lust1 For centuries the landwalkers had wondered, had dreamed, and invented stories about all they did not understand. These dreams were the work of the Sirens. They pulled on threads of memory, imagination and desire. From deep below the waves they would sing, the soft strains of music flowing with the tides, breaking into trance like tones as the breakers hit the shore. Calling the landwalkers to their watery graves was their task and their joy. The lustful heat they could inspire in rapidly beating hearts, the yearning gaze of desire in eyes reflecting their beauty, and the deadly rhythm of the waves. Few caught in their aqueous embrace would live to walk the land again. Dazzled by shining scales on the faces of new paramours, the Sirens would take their warmth along with their kisses. Some may not have minded, a new life could await them after all, deep beneath the rolling waves.
cane sirens lust2 Shown here is the Siren's Lust skin by   S u g a r  in skintone Cane. This skintone is pale, with a warmer pink in the cheeks that works well with the striking turquoise and green of the eyeshadow, face scales, and lips. There's a punky feel to the colours used for the skin, without it being overly strong, so it could be worn as a badass rebel of a young Mer, or softened to a more gentle look just by your choice of hair and outfit.

Cats Eye

powdered catseye1
It had been loud as a screaming jet engine, and hot as hades in the underground club that night. The tiny stage had been little more than a podium on which they had been the focus, the target for the yells, energy, and hands of the writhing mob. Sweat condensing on the walls, running in rivulets down grimy brickwork, smeared here and there where a body fell against it, no longer able to keep up with the driving pogo filling the dark cramped space. Clothes were torn, toes crushed, asses grabbed. And no one cared. It was all about the music, their music, and being there. Bedraggled and battered, scratched by the reaching hands of the crowd as they jumped and rocked to the beat, they had never felt more alive. Final chords thrummed, screaming and shouts chased them along the tangle of backstage corridors out into the chill of the alley. Falling onto the crates, voices hoarse, they were the essence of their music, the sound of the night.. and the camera caught it all.
powdered catseye2
Here shown is the Cats Eye skin by  S u g a r  in the skintone  Powdered. Wow... seriously, I JUST got all the sugar references. I'd just been thinking they were all 'sweet' names linked to the colour tones. There you go, my occasional slow idiocy exposed. Anyway - back to the skins. I think this may be my favourite of the new selection of skins. The leopard spots across the eyes are not in a solid or straight band, it's the curves that make it look so good, more natural even. The lips are nude, but with gloss that makes them stand out as effectively done natural makeup. This skintone, which is paler than anything I would generally go for, is really beautiful. If I go pale, I'll be going powdered. Love this.

As with the other skins, these are limited release, 50 of each tone in each style. You can find them here...

Three spoonfuls of S u g a r

I promised the rest of the skins from the new range by  S u g a r. Here's some of said skins, each design shown is also in a different skintone, so you can see what you have to pick from if you get to the limited stocks soon! I warn you, this may be a bit of an epic, though after three I thought it was enough for today...

Tango Masque

 barbados tango masque c3_2
The masked ball was always the event of the social calendar, a chance to outdo longstanding rivals and friends. The aristocrats with their costumes pieced together by designers paid astronomical sums to step away from couture collections. Upstarts from the nouveau riche flashed their gaudy baubles, never quite meshing with the inherited, if decaying glamour of those born and raised in the lifestyle. Isabella of course, fit neatly into neither of these categories. They saw her as the hired help, their insecurities laid on her, their own inadequacies exposed as she moved through the crowds. She had taught many of them the steps, and tonight, all eyes would be on her as the tango began. Sultry strains of music beginning, raising in tempo to a passionate beat she matched with each step. Her dark eyes behind the mask of her makeup caught the jealousy in each gaze, the longing each movement produced in her audience. Spinning into her stance, her back to the throng, looking back at them over her shoulder, her ruby lips parted in a wry smile. The elite filling the hall were wrapped up in the spell of the music, as with a stamp of her heel, the dance began.
barbados tango masque c3_1 Shown here is the Tango Masque skin from  S u g a r  in skintone Barbados. The dark sweep of black across the eyes makes this a great option for a masked ball, without the need to an additional mask - thus also avoiding any conflicts between lashes you may wear with a mask. The lip is a beautiful rich red, with strong highlights giving the glossy effect.

Punky Babe

punky babe demarera c3 2 She was always in the library... This was not to say that she was always working, far from it. On those rare times when she had been caught during one of her pranks, dropping cherry bombs into toilet cisterns, or wrapping the Principal's car in cellophane, she would be sent there to sit though a detention. More often than not, she was in there simply because it was quiet, a good place to think, to dream, and to read. There were no limits to what you could learn she knew, other than if you happened to run out of books, even then, you could always charm the librarian into ordering more from another college. This, of course, was one of the best scams going. Slip a note, an order, a phone number into a book on the shelf of those requested by another college, and you tapped into a healthy trade route, well established and never yet discovered by those in charge, however much the texts may smell of illicit substances on their return. Young and innocent looking as she was, she had learned the ways of the world, and how you could often find fun in the most unexpected places.
punky babe demarera c3 1 Shown here is the Punky Babe skin from  S u g a r  in skintone Demerara. This is a youthful skin, with a smattering of freckles over the cheeks and nose. Pale pink lips and silvery eyeshadow maintain this sweetness, but an edge is still delivered by the arching brow. This skin would make me imagine there would be scrapes on the knees from some escapade or other, it makes a beautiful tomboy!

Midnight Lotus

midnight lotus1 Madame Lotus was a well kept secret in the chateaux and palaces during the reign of Le Roi Soleil. The Sun King... the thought itself made her smile. Light calling on darkness to tell it's future. Not that there was only light to be found in the state rooms of the courtesans and courtiers. Plots there were thicker than the miasma over the Seine. She would uncover them, or shroud them deeper in darkness, depending on the coin she was offered, and what she received. This was not the first royal house she had graced, or damned. She picked, and chose her favourites, from the people, and the fashions of the time, and others she had lived through. Cloaked and hidden, she was rarely seen unless she desired it, and when she did, her hypnotic visage ensnared the most cynical of hearts.
midnight lotus2 Finally, for today anyway, here is shown the Midnight Lotus skin from  S u g a r  in skintone Honey. The makeup on this skin is powerful, with the rich deep wine coloured lip, again with a glossy finish. The boldness of the look continues with the sweep of purple across the eyes, and the gold highlights of liner add an opulence. This is surrounded by delicate, art nouveau linework, which softens the overall effect, ensuring the bold, almost warpaint stripes of colour are still very feminine.

These skins are available at   S u g a r   mainstore for L$ 899 each, including the different cleavages, and extras. There are only 50 of each skintone available. The rest of the range will appear on the blog soon!
