The night Max wore his wolf suit and made mischief of one kind
His mother called him “WILD THING!”
And Max said “I’LL EAT YOU UP!”
so he was sent to bed without eating anything.
-Maurice Sendak, ‘Where The Wild Things Are‘
I imagine that a lot of us are familiar with the book; I imagine some of us are even huge fans. I’m one of those huge fans, I have to admit: just transcribing the above got me a little sniffly. When I heard about the Wild Things summer gacha I definitely wanted to have a look at it (and you should have a peek if you like wild animals, too! There’s some fun gachas there!)
Well, Uriah Eulenberg is also a fan of the book, apparently.
LET THE WILD RUMPUS COMMENCE!
We’re all used to Balaclava!! (his store) producing intricately detailed funny little objects, like the wee robots that go ‘ping’, or the playset of construction equipment. Here’s something he did for Wild Things as a gift.
It is free.
It tells time (you can reset the clock to your own timezone; it’s SLT by default), and the little figures in the dome rotate around the fire, just like in the Wild Rumpus panel in Mr. Sendak’s book. Here’s a closer shot of them:
And yes, it’s a gift. That means you can have it for free if you visit the Wild Things Summer Gacha event! And ONLY if you visit the Wild Things event: it won’t be available in his store, or anywhere else, afterwards.
If you’re curious what other cleverness Uriah’s got out at his store, you should click here to visit Balaclava!!.
What can I say about Lapointe & Bastchild I haven’t said a million times before? Paul and Bastchild really do amazing clothes for men and women alike (though obviously, I don’t wear much of the womenswear). Here’s a pair of shorts they did for Project Limited:
They have four textures on them – two with dragon and demon faces on the front of the legs, and two tones of camo (grayscale and a more classic olive-green), which you can switch between with a HUD. I chose the ones I liked and stuck with them for these pictures. Setting on this first picture is Elegant Environs’ lovely ‘Mya Cozy Cabana’ in Poppy: there’s more on Elegant Environs’ terrific Summer collection on the Homestuff blog, click through to read that entry! You can also visit Elegant Environs to shop by clicking through on this link (which you will also find in the Homestuff blog if you like viewing previews first).
Here’s a more clothes-centric photo of the new shorts from Lapointe & Bastchild: I’m wearing a slightly older L&B T-shirt with them.
As usual, Paul’s attention to detail in designing the hang of the garment and the wrinkles (or is that Bastchild’s? I’m really not entirely sure) just makes these work.
There were a hundred-and-twenty-some pairs of these still available when I left Project Limited this evening: you can find a pair of these shorts waiting for you by clicking right here to visit! The L&B shop has the ‘S’wear’ logo over the entryway and isn’t too far from where you TP in.
Shirt: L&B Swear “Classic” T-Shirt – GE
Shorts: L&B “Death Royale” Men’s Cargo Shorts – Dragon Demon (limited edition)
Skin: Clef de Peau “Samuel T4”
Eyes: FATEwear “FATEeyes”
Hands: SLink “Male hands relaxed”
Hair: Exile “High and Dry” (from Hair Fair)
So anyone who’s followed my blog for any length of time has probably noticed I complain regularly about there not being enough stuff for guys, or less often, not being enough good stuff for guys.
I’m kind of a hair addict, so when friends of mine had early access to the Hair Fair, I figured I’d ask them to keep an eye open for what was new for boys – toss me photos, whatnot. I figured I could man-shop Hair Fair – figure out where what I wanted was found, TP straight to it, buy it, TP out, all in you know, 3 minutes or so.
This was not to be. But in a good way! Continue reading
I’ve done hardly anything with the blog in the past month or two. And very little with the Homestuff blog as well.
There’s some great stuff coming via the ‘stuff groups: a gacha event in August, f’rinstance! And I’m uhm… uh… there’s great… uhm… I’m here!
Anyways, yes, I’ve been a slackard (portmanteau word, that: slack + bastard). My apologies: I intend to be more active in the near future. I hope you’re all having a great Second Life!
