It’s a beautiful lie
It’s the perfect denial
Such a beautiful lie to believe in
So beautiful, beautiful lie it makes me“
The oddest things happen when I have way too much time on my hands..
My quest to get my inventory down to 50K from, 105K is going slowly but, hey.. it IS going..
I am currently (finally), just under 89K…. many of you know how long I have been working on this… it just seems that, I delete say.. 10K.. then 20K somehow finds it way into the mess..
So, last night, I was going thru my “received” items folder and I happened upon this really nice looking hood from, .Shi and it said unisex…
And me, being me, I got it into my head that maybe I should buy this for my “M” alt…
For those of you that do not understand the title… it means my, MALE ALT… yes, I have one..
actually MOST females that blog have one… however, I tend not to send things to him and use him mainly for MALE hunts.
I started to get bored… like many of you do when cleaning out the good ole inventory… and, I started to check out friends blogs.. like, Bouncer Criss’ …. a long time friend, who oddly enough, doesn’t even remember HOW long we have been friends!!! Shame on you, LOL! JK! xx
In his recent posts, he is showing off items in the recent, Mens Department.. and event, that is GEARED towards Men however, us ladies like to check it out from time to time to see if there is something that we may like.. or, so we can make over our men.. *hint hint, Luc*…
So, I went down, and got this awesome idea to use as much as I could from, The Mens Department to show you GUYS and you ladies that you can “make” a great avie, just on items from this event…
I also wanted to show the MALE fashion designers that I CAN actually, handle doing a male post all on my own. lol..
And this is what I came up with… yes.. the secret is out.. for all my female friends that were drooling over this HOT avie on FaceBook (my own sister included lol @ Krizze!!)… the avie is none other then, Morgana Hilra.
Shown about would be.. of course the hood that I mentioned above from, .Shi by Joy Laperriere ..
I love the dramatic feel of it.. I have seen it on many blog posts.. mainly guys wearing it but, some females as well…so this would work for both.. this did NOT come from, The Mens Department however, in my opinion I think the designer should be invited to it because, they make some KILLER content!
The skin is from, Tricky Boucher of Belleza and it is called, Jacob and is available at the event for ONLY, 150L!!!!!
The skin has as you can see, very light body hair.. which in reality is correct.. for those of you trying to make your avatars look.. more “human”… a nice strong face, good lines.. perfect.. especially if you know someone that is only just starting out in SL and you want to help them along.. there are other skins as well.. or at least one more that I saw.. I am not sure so do not quote me on the designer but, I think it was FRUK..and that one to me, had a more goth feeling too it, so if that is the style you like, grab that one too.. it was also there for a great price!
The tattoo is also from the event and it is called, Out of This world from Bleak..
I have never actually seen this designer before.. and really that is why this event is so awesome.. why any of the events are awesome.. you get to see new designers, even if they are just new to YOU… this was made by, someone NAMED, Untitled.. what a unique name.. well, either way, GREAT tattoo…
The shape I chose to wear is ALSO, available at the Mens Department!
This is a slightly modded version of, Nikolas by Entropy and is, Mod/Copy/No Trans.
All I personally did to the shape, and I am telling you this incase you want to recreate the look above.. was, I shorten “him” a little.. and I made his muscle mass on his arms, a tad thinner also, I pulled in the shoulders so they were not so broad.
I made sure not to touch the face at all so that when I placed the lashes, they would not look differently for YOU.
The lashes are something else in this post..
In the past I have heard people say that males “do not have time for lashes”….
They find them hard to place, and get tried of them.
Well boys! Maitreya has a free gift of these gorgeous, mesh lashes and as you can see, they do not look “fake” at all… well, other then the fact that we are in a VIRTUAL WORLD! lol.
These are very simple to fit, and they are copyable so, if you screw up just make sure you made a copy before hand..
The Skate jeans that I am wearing are why women go to this event.. one of the reasons!
Pixlights Factory by PetrPix Cascarino has a pair of these awesomely made jeans out for men & women..
A m a z i n g !!!
They are well made, and all the highlights and shadows are right where they need to be..
The above images were not with “shadows” enabled because, I wanted to show how well made these are!
There is also this awesome T-Shirt/Vest combo thingy, lol.. I am so going back for.. it is one of those HUD driven mesh tops that I am always so ON about.. 200+ combos, in ONE top.. how could you possibly turn that down!!??
People also commented on my eyes..
I am sure it would be no surprise to you to find out that they are from, Ikon.
I love Ikon Eyes.. so, I HAD to use them for this post!
Ikon Innovia has some very unique and awesome eyes.. if you have not been yet.. I think you should at least take a moment and go have a look.
This is another designer that I think should be in these events, I think they deserve some HIGH traffic!
Speaking of a designer I WISH was in one of these events, LIKE, Mens Department..
2REAL Okelli has been making shoes in SL for… omg, I don’t know HOW long.. but, it has been a while.
Their shoes, are some of the BEST made in Second Life.. very.. realistic!
2REAL shoes are the shoes that I “fall back on”.. it takes alot for a designer to be in what I refer to as my “reset avatar”… meaning, if something goes wrong in SL and I have to character test my avatar (default) then, I have a folder of stuff that I quickly “replace outfit” with.. it has shape, skin, hair, eyes, huds, etc… and these shoes are apart of that folder.
They are perfect for men & women, and even KIDS!
So.. there you have my very extensive “male” post..
As you can see by the photo below.. it was very tiring, LOL… but, once I got the idea.. I had to go with it!
I hope I did a good job on this, I really wanted to try to impress people.. for many reasons but, in the end, it was for fun!
Now, I must log in and make an “outfit” folder of this look, so that when I want to blog a male me post again, lol it is easily accessible!
Enjoy, all the urls are below!
OH! BEFORE I FORGET!!!!
The hair that I am wearing is a very awesome, Valentines gift from, DURA!
So make sure you go grab it up!!!
Chiaki Xue has some of the most awesome short hairs in SL.. I always stalk them.. you should too..
