  1. As I don't see my avatar as an extension of myself, but simply a virtual shape shifter I love to style, I feel comfortable slipping into other ethnicities and thus hopefully show some variety on my blog. This is one of the black looks I recently did. You'll find all the credits in the link underneath the image in Flickr.
  2. Glamping and a vintage look go together like... Two things that go well together.
  3. Thanks. It's always nice to be appreciated. It's not like in real life, where if you go to the gym you get a health benefit (as long as you don't drop a dumbell on your foot or slip on your sweat on the treadmill and fall face down on the contraption while it's still going). Working on ourselves in SL only has the aesthetically pleasing benefits of self-improvement. Although, I do find the tinkering rather therapeutic.
  4. The answer to the question "how does your avatar look today" is a tricky one. I've been tweaking shapes to better work with the latest updated of the Akeruka M01 mesh head, so I've been quite the chameleon the past couple of days.
  5. It was time for another fairy day AND an easter look. Just add bunny ears to anything and a pop of bright colour and basically you've got that down.
  6. Here we are again with a look for one of the underdogs of the male mesh bodies, just to keep things interesting. I'd get bored if I only played with the popular ones. It's slightly more of a thrill to find a pair of shorts that fit if they haven't been made for the body you're using. Makes you feel like the cat that got the cream.
  7. I went with the Niramyth Aesthetic mesh body today. Not my favourite, but it still is popular with a loyal group and I'm all for diversity. I know that rigging clothes for all these different mesh bodies is a pain in the lower back for creators, but SL would be a lot more boring with only one (male) mesh body, in my opinion. Many people with this body will make the shape very bulky, but I prefer to keep it a bit more modest.
  8. I've been indulging in some virtual beach therapy lately. I wonder if that would be more effective with VR goggles, but that's probably a discussion for another place in the forum. Here's one of my beach looks.
  9. I've used this skin before with much more European/Western looking results. This time on this particular head the Asian features are more visible. Isn't just magical how you can keep getting different looks just by combining different skins with different mesh heads and playing with the shape. Seriously, if I was kid right now, a Ken doll would need at least 20 heads to be able to compete with SL.
  10. My monthly styling sessions with the NX-Nardcotix David mesh body have become yet another marker of just how fast a month goes by. Only in hindsight though. Why is it that while you're in the middle of moment, it can seem to drag on forever, but once it's in the rear view mirror, it seems like it was secretly on fast-forward all along?
  11. Does anyone else get a kick out of sprucing up an old look?
  12. In my neck of the woods we're experiencing a bit of "real" winter but that won't stop me from strutting around in a pair of swimming briefs (a.k.a. budgie smugglers) in Second Life. After all, there are more beaches in this virtual world than we know what to do with.
  13. Sadly winter wonderland is melting away rapidly in my neck of the woods. Maybe there will be a second act in February or March, one never knows. What definitely will be around for a bit longer are the sweaters (isn't pullover a nicer word though) and cardigans, a garment invented by someone who accidentally burned the tails of his coat.
  14. Cardigans are perfect for post holiday season early January. They're practical, comforting and can be worn fashionable or just with sweatpants on a lazy (Sun)day.
  15. I think I've got a New Year's Eve outfit already.
  16. There sure are some amazing gifts this year. I’m loving this “Alain” mesh head by Lelutka, and not just because it’s a group gift. The Clef De Peau is something I found under the Christmas tree too, but I did feel a strong need to go shopping for a Christmas sweater. 🙂
  17. It was time again for my monthly outing with the NX-Nardcotix David mesh body, except I didn't go out, hence the lazy day look.
  18. I've crammed a lot of gifts from November's issue of L'Homme Magazine in this one look (the decor items are gifts too). It's always satisfying when several gifts end up combining nicely for a look. Obviously I'll be wearing more for going around in SL, but for a bit of "oppa gagnam style" on a funny cow seat at home, this "outfit" is perfect.
  19. Athletic Meshbody, by the makers of Legacy Meshbody. You can always find all the details if you click on the image, which will take you to Flickr and there you'll find a link to my blog.
  20. Lelutka now uses a new way to rig their mesh heads, something they refer to as "Boundless". I thought I was going to have to update all the shapes I have made for their heads, but it turns out that in most cases I already had the Boundless versions when I made the shape. Only the Skyler head gave me something to do. Awh, and here I thought I was going to have a project for a week or so. Anyhoo, this is what my avatar looks like today, with an adjusted shape for the Lelutka Skyler 2.5 mesh head.
  21. In between blog posts for other heads, bodies and skins, this has become my more regular go-to look.
