Digits

So, the lovely Strawberry Singh has created her annual “What’s you Digits” meme challenge, and I figured I’d get in on this.

I actually have two main shapes I wear – one “regular” shape and the one I wear with my Mesh Project body. This body looks amazing, though it has an extremely annoying HUD system, and it does not quite match up to the standard SL skeleton. More on that later…

Scroll down and check out my answers to her questions.

Do you currently own a mesh body? If so, do you wear it all the time or just once in a while? – I actually own a few, but the only one I wear is my Mesh Project Deluxe body. I wear it anytime I’m naked, and I prefer to wear it if my arms, legs, or chest are bare.

What is your preferred mesh body available on the market right now? – The Mesh Project Deluxe body. I just feel it’s the best option for guys who want an “average” physique

Have you changed your shape since you started wearing the body? – I have. The Mesh Project body, like I said above, doesn’t quite line up with the SL avatar skeleton. So, I have to make my hips wider to look right, as well as changing some muscle tone and stuff. But the change isn’t massive.

How do you feel about mesh bodies in general? – I LOVE them. They are some of the best things in SL in years. I actually have natural-looking biceps and pecs, and it’s all just sooo smoooth. Another, admittedly weird, thing I like is having defined nipples. I also love the crispness that tattoos and other layers have on the mesh body over the standard body. I’m VERY excited to see what Slink or even Belleza has in store, if anything for guys.

What is one thing you would request from designers when it comes to mesh bodies? – Give the guys the same options, at the same price point, as the girls. For example, in order to get the alpha hud with my Mesh Project body I had to purchase the deluxe version for L$5,000. The basic version does not come with the alpha HUD. However, the women’s basic body does include the alpha HUD for the same L$2,500 price as the men’s body. Another thing I’d like to see readily available for personal use kits available from the start.

That’s about it this time… credits incoming

Shades of Romance

Hello people!

Who’s been to the Love is in the Air event? It’s an amazing event going on right now through February 14th, and it has a great balance of men’s and women’s items, as well as home & garden items. NOT something you want to miss, whether you get into the whole romance thing in SL or not…

For this post I visited Neva River again… this is one of my favorite places to take photos at, and the snowy look worked well with the colors of my outfit. I’m actually wearing at least part of three different items from the Love is in the Air event – my overcoat, suit, and this amazing skin from Clef de Peau, Tadao. Available in four tones, this skin comes with a new (I think) body, with a leaner, less muscled look that works great for my shape. Normal skins and TMP appliers are available.

This overcoat is actually part of a set from Gabriel. The full set is great, though the charcoal grey suit it comes with was not what I was looking for for this post. But the great burgundy red color and roomy size of this coat worked perfectly with the Dandy suit from Deadwool. I’m wearing the small size vest/shirt combo in white and the overcoat in xtra-small, and there is no issue at all with the fit of the two together. 

And I had to throw a pic in here of the suit without the overcoat. Same suit as the last post, just in more awesome colors. I’m not sure if these colors will ever be available again after the event is over, but I wasn’t going to risk it so I just bought them all. Completely worth it!

Well, that’s all for now folks… credits incoming!

Couture Eskimo

First off, I hope that everyone’s holiday season has been going well? Been busy for me, with work and stuff, and now I’m just stuck at home with the flu. Oh well, still not a bad end to 2014 I guess!

Brief post here… I know that both Uber and The Men’s Department December rounds are coming to an end soon, but I figured I’d post anyway!

Also, a quick note about this awesome skin from Clef De Peau – it’s the Christmas gift and it’s only going to be available for two weeks. If I remember correctly the membership fee is only L$150, and this store has some of the best skins on the grid (IMHO) so it’s totally worth it, just to keep up with releases and stuff.

Well, that’s about it… credits and location at the bottom!

Going Places

Happy Wednesday!

Of course, The Men’s Department is open, so there will be a flood of blog posts featuring the items available this round. So here, have another!

Seriously though, this is a great round featuring an awesome collection of products from some of the best designers in SL.

First, this jacket from Cold Ash is just fantastic. I bought the Classic pack. There are three jacket color options included, five shirt colors, and you can wear it with or without the shirt. You even get three sizes of rigged mesh and a two of fitted mesh. The FitMesh v1 fit me perfectly and it moves with my AO very well.      I love these SuperSkinny jeans by Le Primitif are probably my favorite jeans in SL right now. They fit extremely well and come in a handful of great colors. I haven’t found a top yet that they don’t fit under!

     I’ve used facial hair from Hermony for a while now, but this is the first skin I’ve bought. It works really well with my shape, and the three tones for sale at TMD are all so good I had to buy all of them. There is a scuffy face tattoo layer included, body hair options, as well as Slink appliers available. It’s an awesome deal for a very high-quality, fresh-faced skin. I might have to check out the mainstore again!

     And a note about this pretty sweet location – Sunny Fields. It’s home of TMD Mainstore (NOT the Men’s Department). There are aircraft and metro-style trains available for sale, all on a beautiful desert SIM. There is a full runway/landing strip, and you can rez your own aircraft to fly, props even. It’s also just a fun place to explore. Or to take pictures, obviously!

Well, have a happy hump day! Credits incoming!

Untitled (Post #8)

Hey guys! How was your Halloween? Mine was… slow. In SL and RL.

Anyway, here is what was supposed to be my Halloween post, two days late. It’s okay though; I think this look isn’t just suited for Halloween. It’s a good, modern, mysterious look great for any masquerade ball.

I also had no idea what to title this, so, whatever X-[

You all know that I love me some Kauna. Ross Myhre puts out some of the best men’s suits & tuxedos on the grid, in my humble opinion. The classic, clean lines of this tuxedo are wonderfully modern, and I love peak lapels. My only gripe? That there isn’t a tuxedo shirt option (with black buttons) with a spread collar. But, that’s just my personal taste. This is, hands down, the best tuxedo I’ve found for my more slender frame.

These great patent leather formal shoes are from Gabriel, and they WERE available at the October edition of The Men’s Department. I’m sure they will be available in the mainstore, eventually.

Why am I shirtless in a cathedral? Because it’s SL, damnit…

     I wanted to bring some attention to this awesome mask and magnificent beard as well. The mask, by OtC, comes with chained/non chained versions, and is one piece – so you can stretch it on different sides instead of all at once. I love the horns, and the minimalism of it (especially the one with no chain) has a certain elegance to it that I love.

Now to my beard – I love this thing. I saw the vendor image while browsing some Flickr groups, and I HAD to get it. It’s by DossiEr, and it includes a texture HUD to change the hair color. It’s also modifiable, so you can change the color even further if you wish. It includes the mustache and the beard together, or as separate attachments for a more custom fit.

The location that I shot at for this post – Morphe Northwinds – is full of gorgeous Medieval builds, not least of all is the grand St. Illuminatios Cathedral. This is one of the most amazing buildings I’ve seen in SL, and everything is extremely detailed. I love the stained glass especially; I only wish that SL light will actually behave like real light and cast beautiful jewel tones from those windows. There are also a ton of gorgeous castles and other builds available for sale. I want a castle now. Seriously.

Anyway – that’s all for now. Credits follow 🙂
