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

Wow, it’s been a minute!

The Men’s Department started it’s Third Anniversary round a few days ago, and boy is this a great round! The designers did a great job (as always) and there is a ton of stuff I want need to get for myself. Cold Ash has the Westbrook shirt and it’s an awesome deal, including three standard sizes and two fitmesh sizes AND a free, special edition of the Ocelot jeans. And of course you get the HUD included with a lot of Cold Ash’s stuff so you can change the texture to one of the eight included!

 

The SIM I’m visiting in this post is the Immersiva art SIM by Bryn Oh. This place changes pretty regularly so I recommend to ASAP and experience it yourself!

     These uber-cool Gunshot sunglasses from Redgrave are also available at TMD. The lenses and the frames are color-changeable via menu, as well as resizable. Another item I had to pick up from TMD is the amazing Spencer skin from Birth. In three tones, no less. Birth has been one of my favorite skin stores since 2011, but the latest slinlines have just been phenomenal. This skin is not to be missed, especially for the special price you can get it for at the event. I picked up three tones and I’m not sorry one bit!

And that’s it for this post… credits and SLURLs at the bottom!

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 🙂

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!
