We found great retro furniture and stores all over SL and put together a nice, real feeling 50's home. The sofa came from LP2 furniture.
The TV and most of the trimmings in the house are from Artillerie. Artilleri has so many great items to chose from, the detail is amazing, but so is the prim count at times! Be careful!
We decided at the last minute to add an authentic working drive-in that has all the amenities! I got the sign on Marketplace and the Drive in at Eclectic Randomness. The Drive-in is actually a Horizon product. This was a great idea and a great build. There is a working playground fenced in that has many sit poses on, a projection booth and snack bar. It is 333 prims all total, but can be trimmed down as it is set up to be a sky box. Ours comes in at about 298 prims.
We have been enjoying the retro build this spring, and the fashion! I predict we will be doing a 50's fashion blog shortly as Verde and I have been ramping-up our wardrobe in this style as well! OK Daddy -O!
