Ladies and Gentlemen...

This blog is the virtual shop window of my Blue Mars emporia, which are to be found in Caledonia and Beach City. In these shops you will find a selection of menswear both historical and contemporary, and many designs of ladies footwear. A small sample of the above are shown here:

I also supply jewellery in the form of rings, weapons in the form of swords for both genders, ladies apparel, men's accessories, hair, items of furniture and decoration. The lady who wishes to exude a certain style, the gentleman who is particular about the authenticity and quality of his garb, the military gent, the louche habitue of clubs and the upright pillar of society should, one and all, feel that their needs are perfectly catered for at Mako Magellan's delightful and surprising establishments.

Mako Magellan in Beach City

Beach_City_Shop_01.jpg

Although my newest shop arrived some weeks ago, I was not able to see the effects myself for some time, due to a few travel hiccoughs and interplanetary high jinks. Notwithstanding all that, herewith, and without further unconscionable delay, a photograph of the new Mako Magellan edifice in the recently opened developers' field at Beach City (in the location designated NL04).

The shop has a limited range of my items in menswear, ladieswear, and accessories.

Gentleman's Walking Cane

Walking_Cane.jpg

A walking cane for the slightly risque gentleman. This cane is in ebony and brass, and features a cast brass handle moulded for the gentleman's delectation in the comely figure of Venus. What better companion for the man of Mars?

A sword for the ladies

It seems that the Regency Court Sword I introduced recently has been drawing as much attention from the ladies as it has from the men, if not more. It is for that reason that I now offer a ladies version. It is to be found in the back window, near the ladies shoes. Note that the rather more mobile hips of the gentler sex may cause a bit more mesh interpenetration during walking.

A Regency-style court sword

Regency_Court_Sword.jpg

It was customary for gentlemen, both military and civilian, to carry swords in the 18th century. The swords had become ceremonial in purpose, were light and intended to decorate rather than to defend. This is a design based very closely on court swords of the period, with a small coquille and very thin blade. It is supported by straps attached to a belt (not rendered, as it could interfere with clothing) which would be hidden under a waistcoat.

A sapphire ring

Sapphire.jpg

Here is a ring featuring nine round brilliant cut sapphires, and two round brilliant cut diamonds. The sides of the ring are decorated with a scroll in white gold. The ring is set to be worn on the middle finger of the right hand. To find it, go to my shop in Caledonia, and approach the white pedestal nearest to the ladies riding coat, then look very carefully; the ring is above the pedestal. You will need to get your avatar close, get your camera closer still, and look upwards. It is there!

Tables are now in the shop

Banquesting_Table.jpg Round_Table.jpg

Two Regency-style tables are now in my shop in Caledonia. The first is a large rectangular banqueting table that can sit six to ten people, the second is a smaller round table suitable for four places. Remember that most Blue Mars shelves display all merchandise in a 1-metre cube, so these items will look considerably smaller than they will appear when you place them at home. The larger table is over three metres long and the round table has a diameter of 1.68 metres.

An engagement ring

Ring-day.jpg ring-night.jpg ring-morning.jpg

Tired of virtual suitors? Looking for a way to deter their unwanted attentions? Well, it may or may not do the trick, but here is an platinum engagement ring, encrusted with eleven round brilliant-cut diamonds, and fitted to the third finger, left hand. The sides of the ring feature a leaf decoration in white gold. The ring is shown (left to right) in daylight, night and morning lighting.

The ring is available in my shop in Caledonia , though it might be hard to find, as it is so small. Go to the far end of the ladies' shoe display, and you will find it just to the right of the dark purple stilettos. Look carefully, it is there.

Finally, please make sure to wear this in the top clothing slot - otherwise it can show through your finger.

All furniture has been upgraded

FurnitureSet.jpg

Working with Blue Mars is most definitely a learning process - a fact that has been emphasised all over again while working with cabinetry. I admit to having been learning on the job. Since first releasing the items of furniture listed below, I've found ways to make them better. If you have already purchased one or more of them, please contact me so that I may provide you with replacements. Note that I have included the mark of each item. If your items have a lower mark then you should upgrade to these ones.

  • Regency Chest of Drawers Mk II  -  more realistic materials, and the ability to place other objects on top of it
  • Early 19th Century French Writing Desk in Cherry Wood Mk VI  -  corrected scaling, more realistic materials, and the ability to place other objects on top of it
  • Regency Chair Elegant Black-Gold Mk IV  -  more realistic materials, and the ability to place other objects on top of it (though how this will look I do not know)
  • Regency Chair Sturdy Blue-Gold Mk IV  -  more realistic materials, and the ability to place other objects on top of it (though how this will look I do not know)
  • Victorian Hatstand in Cherry Wood Mk V  -  more realistic materials, and the ability to place other objects on top of it (though how this will look I do not know)

I am keeping my fingers crossed that these versions will be final.
