Hi All, 

Long time lurker, very intermittent poster! :)

I've been using the Steve Skin by Unique Megastore for a year or so now, but I'm looking to move on to something new. The problem is that it seems skin makers only cater for the beautiful young looks. I prefer my avatar to be a bit closer to myself in RL (you know, ruggedly handsome... :P). There's a few older skins around that suit the 50s - 60s age range but I'm really struggling to find any others that would suit late 30s/early 40s (other than the one I have). Does anyone have any suggestions please?

Thanks in advance!

Ethan

One of the Redgrave skins, King, is probably in that age range. The skin was really popular some years ago. But now after the mesh heads and bodies came along, I don't see it around so much. https://menipulation.wordpress.com/2011/01/05/skin-review-redgrave-craigking/

I assume you know about the Aeros skin Maxwell. This is more the 60 y old, and sadly they don't have a browless option, only painted on gray brows.

Belleza had male skins that looked a bit older than 20-30 years old. Maybe you could say mid-thirties. The problem now is that I don't use any system skins, so I don't know if the store has them up for sale. It is possible to go there and take a look.

Thanks Marianne and Alwin.

I'll have a look at Redgrave, and I hadn't considered Egoisme - I haven't been there in forever! And as for Belleza, I always thought that they were female mesh bodies only. It just goes to show what variation there is in SL. I'll let you know how I get on (as it might be useful for the other 2 people who are still archaic enough to keep their system skins. We're definitely an endangered species! :ph34r:)

You are stars!

Marianne - You are a genius and a star! 

The King skin does indeed fit the age range, although even the pale skin was a bit more tanned than I was looking for. It's growing on me though! And with the Ashton Shape from -Belleza- (C/M so a bit of tweaking to personalise), as well as Jaryth's Body Hair kit, the Holt beard and some hair from Exile, I think my avatar looks pretty damned fine! Thank you so much for your help! 

(And Alwin, I've grabbed a couple of Egoisme's to try out, they're not the look that I was aiming for, but there were a couple that piqued my interest.)

Thanks again!
