Text-only post incoming. I posted this in the 'Just Ignore' thread, but it also kinda belongs here, since it's about creating avatar looks, so...

It's often stated that SL is a woman's world when it comes to shopping, and - as a man who loves fashion - I've always agreed with that. It's also sometimes (well, actually, often) said that most men can't be bothered to do much with their avatar once they've got a couple of decent looks together. More often than not, though, that's because it's so bloody difficult to find a wide variety of stuff that isn't just jeans, t-shirts, hoodies, sneakers, etc. Women who take the time to tour current events with a male perspective in mind may already have noticed this, but I've just been looking through the Seraphim gallery for the Black Fair, which has just started. It might open some eyes to see the stats:

  • 140 stores
  • Male-only items - 3 (one beard, one skin, one set of m/m poses)
  • Unisex tattoos that show at least one man on the ad (and are therefore compatible with male mesh bodies) - 4
  • Other unisex items - 2 (mesh ears, glasses)
  • Unisex nail appliers (eg: not Maitreya-only) - 3
  • Unisex poses (eg: one male, one female in a couples pose) - 2

That's it. The guys get precisely the following:

  • 1 skin
  • 1 beard
  • 1 set of gay poses, plus 2 m/f couple poses
  • 4 tattoos
  • 1 pair of ears
  • 1 pair of glasses (there are two other pairs, but both are very femme 'cat-eye' styles)
  • 3 sets of nail appliers (if that's their thing)

Oh, and of course, all of the home decor options. ¬¬

It's bloody hard work putting together a stylish male avatar when that's the typical offering (and it IS the typical offering) at events.

ETA: Yes, we do now have male-only events (four of them, plus one yearly event) but if you've been going to those for as many years as I have, you'll see that the items on offer tend toward an average of 75% jeans, t-shirts, hoodies, sneakers, etc, 5% home decor, 10% accessories, and 10% 'fashion' clothing. Even some of the more 'fashion' designers that frequent these events have started moving toward hoodies and sneakers lately.

Skel in my short time here this is something i have noticed too. All the offers and messages i get are for female stuff. Hats off to you for the variety of stuff you create based on what we have to work with!

Still debating over which to get lol. 

Both.  Check out Carson's posts on https://fabfree.wordpress.com/ for some decent freebies on those items.  Also check Skell's blog for some places to get decent freebies.  I've managed to get some decent stuff for my male alt, though off the top of my head I'm drawing a blank - probably because I seldom log him in.
