I Went Shopping For Shorts

1 Tableau_034

My favourite shorts ever are the Paneled Shorts by Tres Blah. I even blogged about them. I bought a couple of colours when they were out at Collabor88 a few months ago. I had no idea when I went back to purchase another colour (or five) that I would find myself in such a surrealistic wonderland.

The shorts can be found at the Tres Blah store at Tableau. I can only describe this sim as Area 51 meets Haunted Carnival meets Jurassic Park in Tijuana. It is surreal and colourful and you have to see it to believe it. Yes, there are quite a few stores there, but they are all huddled together in a little town, surrounded by a riot of surprises. Tumble weeds roll lazily past only to come to a rest against the leg of a dinosaur. A Fun House clown’s smile is the frame for what appears to be a retirement corral for merry-go-round horses. Unexploded atomic bombs are nestled amid the broken down buildings. The music is a strange combination of elevator music/big band/carnival sounds. You must see it to understand just how eerily beautiful it is.

I’m not going to act as your tour guide, but click past the cut to see a few of the sights.

And to think, all I wanted was to buy a pair of shorts.

  1. I just love how some stores are creating themed sims for us shoppers to enjoy. It is exciting to discover there is something aside from just goodies inside the stores.

Talk to me! (please? )
