Foggy Morning Run

Okay, so I want to apologize for the poorly rendered bus in the background of the first pic – I didn’t realize it was that bad until I went to edit the photos this evening (I took them last night)

Now that that’s out of the way, I want to talk about my… nipples! Aren’t these great?! They’re from Noche, and were available at the Fetish Fair, but are now in the mainstore. I didn’t really think much of them until I decided to try the demo, and I was blown away. They’re sexy! AND super easy! Never thought that I’d be this obsessed about my virtual nipples…

Oh, and a note about this SIM, it’s called Hinansho, and I promise to do another post with clearer lighting. It’s such a beautifully done place, everyone should really go check it out!

Ozark Daytrip

Hello faithful readers! Sorry about the wait for a new post; I’ve been dealing with some RL work and health issues and I’ve not been feeling like blogging, and money has been a bit tight so I’ve not had the money to purchase new things to blog. But enough of that, on with the post!

This month has been fantastic as far as events go – lots of really great stuff. Unfortunately I don’t have the time and/or money to blog all of it, so here are a few of my favorites. This shirt/vest combo from Ascend is great, something I’ve been looking for in SL for a while now – there just aren’t enough casual vest combos available. I’ve paired it here with some chinos from Cold Ash and boots from Deadwool for a casually stylish combo perfect for the last few days of summer. I’m absolutely in love with this hair from Deadwool, I’m thinking I’m going to have to buy all the other color packs now. And Marco of Clef de Peau has been on a roll lately, releasing some of my favorite skins for my Catwa Stanely head in the last month.

And this SIM is just amazing, isn’t it? The windlight setting was just perfect, I had to just tweak it a very little bit. This place perfectly captures that tiny bit of the year when summer is fading, but the explosion of autumn color hasn’t quite started. Really gorgeous place, visit if you can!

Cool Summer

It’s August already! Wow, this year is moving by so fast. I must admit, I’m really looking forward to next month – I’m not a guy who likes the heat, and Autumn is by far my favorite season. Today in Indiana we seem to be getting a taste of Fall already – it’s only about 60° out! For August here, that’s just unheard of.

In Second Life of course, I can wear anything anywhere, regardless of the temperature or occasion. I have a huge affinity for really well-tailored jackets and suits, and I really like this double breasted number from Ascend available at Fameshed. It fits really well, and it comes with a HUD to change the shirt color. I would love to see an option to go without the shirt, or have a tee under it, but apart from that it’s perfect. And you can get it in so many colors and cloth types!

That’s all I have today folks, but you know the drill – credits at the bottom!

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!

Pride

Hey! I know I’ve gotten really bad about posting on the blog but not really writing anything. The truth is that I have been feeling super uninspired lately, so I’ve not really had much to say. I’ll try to get better, but no promises.

On to the theme of today’s post though… Pride. Specifically, LGBT+ Pride. Every June rainbow flags start popping up everywhere, the parades happen, and the whole world seems to collectively come out to show their love and support for the LGBT+ community. But it’s the constant fear of hate that keeps me in the closet. It terrifies me, paralyzes me even. Every year I tell myself that I’m going to come out, and I never do. I’m 28 years old and fear has kept me from being open all this time. SL is the only place that I have felt like I could be “myself”. If I had a perfect body, a perfect face, and a literally limitless wardrobe. BUT I can at least be gay; I can flirt with guys and walk around in a leather harness and not really gives a damn.

I hate being closeted. And I hate being gay even more. I know that homosexual attraction is natural, that it isn’t something that can be changed on and off like a switch. I know this. But every part of me just feels that I’m wrong for being gay. I was raised in an extremely religious household (to put it lightly), so homosexuality wasn’t just considered sinful, but it was also something to be made fun of. And because I liked to play with my sister’s dolls, dress well, and had an obsession with flowers, I was a target sometimes. My mother and her friend would spend hours “deprogramming” me. The “therapy” started to become sexually explicit when I was a preteen. I learned to hate the thoughts that I had and to hate myself as well. And I’m somehow, inexplicably, terrified of coming out and either disappointing my family or proving that I am just a pervert. I feel like I can’t win.

After a brief time when a “friend” from church tried outing me after I moved back to Indiana in 2009, I’ve been living as a “straight” man. For the most part, anyway. There are a few people that know; an older adoptive sister who is gay herself; an older biological sister who was excommunicated by our mother; and some people from my previous and current job. But apart from me going to the wedding of a lesbian friend and to Chicago Pride last year, I try to stay away in fear of “outing” myself. My grand plan this year was to head to Chicago for Pride again, and finally come out after wimping out last year. Well, those plans fell through because a) lack of money; & b) lack of friends to actually go with. So here I am, sharing more than anyone cares to know on a Second Life fashion blog. I’m venting, really. I’m a very lonely person; I talk to very few people in RL and I have only one remaining friend in SL. So, this is me, letting it all hang out. Almost literally, in this outfit.

For closing this post, I just want to say thanks to second life for being a least some outlet where I can be “myself” and not be worried about backlash. I can’t decide if it’s been good for me, or if it’s just been a roadblock to me actually being myself in RL. I dunno. But thanks, anyway I guess. Oh, and Boystown was the first gay SIM I visited back in 2009, so I couldn’t think of a more fitting place to take pics for a Pride-themed post.

Now that all of that crap is out of the way, goodnight, and you’ll find the credits and SLURL’s at the bottom. Please, please, please be kind to everyone. You never know what’s going on on their side of the screen. Goodnight!
