Back to the 50's

Todays blog is all about the past. I have a sort of obsession with past music, fashion...etc so I decided while waking up with my first cup of coffee (that's when the best ideas come to me) that I would try and do a themed blog.....and I thought well what kind of theme can I do and this advert for something grease related appeared on the tv the 50's brilliant.......perfect!! so I then went on the hunt for a suitable sim, and I needed clothes to go with the theme so I headed down to kal rau and picked up the casual shirt fatpack it comes with a HUD, and an unlimited number of combinations the textures look great on too. The jeans I'm wearing are liquid mesh blue jeans by Redgrave, and I have to say they fit like a glove. I am totally loving the whole liquid mesh up I needed shoes and I figured converse would just about pass muster since I had seen them worn in several pictures from the 50's and 60's......I scouted the market place for a pair. I ended up with 20.FIVE dark converse they're probably the best I have seen so far in terms of texture, they also come with a HUD and a few color changed just in case you feel like the default black isn't really your thing....

The sim I found is called " The Silver King Grill it's a diner basically themed like the 50's which is perfect for today's blog. I had the pleasure of sitting in with the band while I was there, but as soon as I started singing they all ran screaming off the stage...................(was it something I said??) errrrrrrrrr........they also have numerous stores around the sim, and an arcade across the street which I thought was pretty neat. I didn't bother to use any special photography effects or depth of field. I just felt that it didn't require any major adjustments. The diner serves up some great food, and I had noticed there is a pizza permanently stuck to the counter top (wonder how long it's been there??) it wasn't green or anything so maybe if I got a crowbar and pried it off it still much be okay to eat. There is a guy inside the diner sitting next to the jukebox who looks like he came straight out of the 70's ummmmmm wrong era dude go back.....go back NOW!!!.....on the whole I had fun and if you wanna check it out I highly recommend it for themed parties, even weddings...........see you all real soon with another adventure!

What fell out of my wardrobe and landed on me:
Skin: Fruk - Jeremy skin shade 3 Dark brown
Hair: Hair TYLER -Dark- *REDGRAVE*
Shirt: <kal rau> Casual Shirt M3 P-01_Size 03
Pants: Blue Jeans LQM - ClassicCut - REDGRAVE
Hands: Slink Male Hands - Relaxed
Shoes: 20.FIVE Mesh: Converse Dark 


  1. You may want to stay away from the pizza. If you have to use a crowbar to get it off the counter you don't want it! Since you went back to the 50's does that mean next you will go to the future?

  2. I'm thinking maybe the 60's next, or maybe I could go back even farther and live the caveman lifestyle roflmao!

  3. Be careful if you enter any Gor sims... that was a "good" era but hum, kinda rough... haha! Also, the future is a good theme to explore in SL! Have fun! :)

    1. I think I might do one in a future theme, or Gor too ;)
