City of One

Good morning/evening/afternoon! This will be a more neutral post compared to my last one, promise! Back on to the fashion, and what is now probably my favorite city sim in SL! The SSOC sim is new to me, and it’s just great as a backdrop for almost any kind of post. Today I went for a business casual, sexy bearded guy look. Because why not? It’s SL and I can look however I want!

Anyway, credits and SLURLs at the bottom! Much love!

Aquababe

First off, I want to start off this post by explaining the title a bit…

The Aquababe hair color from Unorthodox is AMAZING and I haven’t taken it off since I discovered it last week. I’ve never been a huge fan of unnaturally colored hair, but this has definitely changed my thoughts. I’m wearing the Comeback hair, and I tinted my eyebrows and DossiEr mustache to match.

I also want to thank Ross Myhre of Kauna for continuing to make some of the best men’s wear on the grid, and this awesome leather coat is no exception. It’s currently available for free at the May round of Fameshed. Seriously. Go. Get one. NOW.

Not much else to say this time… credits at the bottom!

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 🙂

Workday Stroll

     So, I had a job interview today. I personally think it went well, but I’ll just have to wait and see. I dressed up in a suit, and headed out on the hottest day of the year so far. Fun. But I love dressing up, in RL and SL, I just don’t get to do it very often in RL anymore because my current job doesn’t require it. Anyway, I was in a bit of a formal mood today, so of course I turned to the fabulous menswear of Kauna. My overcoat is yet another piece only available at the Black Fashion Fair through until tomorrow, the 22nd!

     Anyhoo – style details and SLURLS at the bottom!

Another brief post here – so sleepy right now, so I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking.

A word about these awesome epaulets from Gizza, however – I’m pretty sure that they are meant for female avatars. The chain, which is rigged mesh, sticks out pretty far from my chest, and the epaulets themselves took quite a bit of resizing and moving around to fit right. And of course posing with them on is a bit tricky, but I find it to be the case with most things like this. They still look awesome & pretty badass!
