As Sansar’s first (and so far, only) fashion blogger, I have made it my mission to tell you all about the best fashions available in Sansar for your avatar.
Solas NaGealai, who is a well-known fashion designer in Second Life as the owner of BlueMoon Enterprise (SL store, blog) and the co-owner of Silvan Moon Designs (SL Store, SL Marketplace, Flickr), is one of my favourite avatar clothing designers. She puts a lot of time, energy, and talent into her clothing designs, and I wanted to showcase a few items that she is generously giving away for free from her store (her Sansar brand is called Lune Bleue).
First up is the beautifully detailed Lady Juliana Medieval Gown, which Vanity Fair is wearing at Nya Alchemi’s medieval tournament experience, S.L.A.R.P.:
And, on the other end of the spectrum, we have Solas’ striped goth top and matching layer skirt, to which I have added black wristbands by C3rb3rus (free!) and black Eden Bailarina flats by Kokoia (for sale for S$150, which works out to about US$1.50/CDN$1.89; click on each of the pictures below to see it in a larger size):
Then, I have switched it up a bit by taking off the wristbands and adding black sunglasses by Snow (also free!) and a goth nose chain by Agustine (S$65, or about 65 cents U.S./82 cents Canadian):
Be sure to pick up your freebies on the Sansar Store. Whether you are a medieval troubadour or a gothic rocker, Solas has got you covered!
C3rb3rus, the grand prize winner of the Sansar Scariest experience contest last year, has completely outdone his previous work with the stunning achievement called simply 2077. Never have I been in any VR experience that feels so much like the world of the classic sci-fi movie Blade Runner!
I was actually able to get an early preview of this wonderful new Sansar experience, when I took most of these pictures. I added several more photos taken when Drax and C3rb3rus conducted an exclusive first tour of 2077.
You actually spawn in the subway station, where a subway train that C3rb3rus showed us how he made takes you on a ride in a circle. Gindipple was the first one who stepped into the train, complaining (as usual) about not being able to sit down, and then, suddenly, whoosh! It took off like a bullet! And he was gone! It was never so peaceful 😉 and even better, Torley Linden got video:
One of the funniest moments of the whole tour!
C3rb3rus led us up to street level, and then down again into a funky underground club. Here you can see Drax interviewing Strawberry Singh:
The attention to detail of the entire experience is absolutely astounding.
To match the experience, I decided to style Vanity Fair in a suitable sci-fi outfit:
Vanity Fair is wearing:
- the dragon blue animated skin by AnuAmun (S$10)
- the flowers and copper armour top by AnuAmun (S$150)
- the short bob hair by Snow (tinted blue to match; FREE)
- and I don’t remember where I got the goggles from! I checked my purchase history and I have no record of buying them. I believe they were already in my inventory as one of the basic avatar attachment objects, which everybody got by default.
Strawberry Singh has blogged (and created the following YouTube video) about the many clothing freebies already available on the Sansar Store (this last link will take you directly to the Wearables section of the Sansar Store, and sort everything there in ascending order by price, with the freebies first).
She also mentions today’s special Scavenger Hunt edition of the weekly Atlas Hopping livestream event she co-hosts with Drax. I plan to attend; hope to see you there!
Strawberry also very kindly mentions both this blog and my store on the Sansar Store, where I do have some free avatar clothing items available. Thanks, Strawberry!
You can’t have high heels in Sansar yet; we are stuck with flat shoes for female avatars for now. But Kokoia has crafted some beautiful ballet flats in five different colours, which makes the lack of high heels bearable for now!
They are S$150 (US$1.50, or CDN$1.88) each. They come in tan, blue, white, red, and black. They’re just one item among the many women’s clothes and home furnishings available for sale in her store.
This relaxing scene is from the patio of David Hall’s Honeybadger Inn.
In this picture, Vanity Fair is wearing:
Ecne is a new Sansar creator who has put out some seriously impressive stuff! I bought his two-piece science fiction armour for female avatars, and I just love it! The top part is S$100:
And you pair it with the bottom part, also S$100:
In addition to the greyish white with blue fluorescent markings, this outfit also comes in black with green fluorescent trim (see the items in her store here). Wearing this sci-fi outfit really makes me feel like I want to go out and explore the galaxies!
Here’s a couple of pictures of Vanity Fair wearing her new sci-fi outfit at the Astro Port experience, by Mold3D. The back shot really shows the fluorescence! Very cool!
Today I am combining a Pick of the Day post (a look at a new Sansar experience) with an Outfit Outlay post (a look at a new free women’s outfit). Killing two birds with one stone! I might do this more often from now on.
La Planète à Roulettes (French for “The Wheeled Planet”) is a brand-new Sansar experience by EricNum. It’s a small castle perched on a giant golden ball, set in the middle of a calm sea, with the sound of seagulls off in the distance. It’s very peaceful.
The castle is decorated with many pictures of futuristic scenarios for space exploration.
A welcome video directs you to a companion website, Planete-A-Roulettes.net, which is the home page of Olivier Boisard.
The website contains lots of information and videos of Olivier’s various projects (all in French). It would appear that he has a deep interest in space exploration!
Back at his experience, there’s a large set of golden gears located in front of the castle, running a large clock:
