  1. I recently went through this exact same search. I'm currently using a skin by Gloom, which uses BOM (it's not the one in my profile pic, which is neither soft nor young!). For applier skins, you could also try Mudskin, who has some male genus faces - you may want to check the marketplace for these as a lot of her work is released as gachas. She's updating her bodies to BOM but there are no V-Tech BOM skins as yet. I haven't checked to see if she still has her 'boy' appliers in store, but I am assuming so. Pink Fuel skins have a monolid option, but again the body skins are still appliers atm, not BOM, if that makes a difference to you.
  2. That's not the same dragon that OP is talking about - I suspect the confusion comes from the noodle name. But I was also considering buying one of these two dragons they mentioned, so I'd be interested in a comparison between them, too.
  3. Just picked up a houseboat in Porthole. I'd actually forgotten my auto refresh was still running!
  4. Possibly the Boys to the Bone ångest dress, which was part of Equal 10 back in April? Not sure that counts as 'recently' but it is a long dress rigged for those bodies.
  5. You could try Raven Bell - the heads are a little more stylised, and fit male and female bodies. You’ll need to use an omega skin though, or one made specifically for that head. From memory they contain two versions, one of which uses its own UV map and the other the standard omega UV map.
  6. Thanks! It's actually the foot of the kimono stand, but now you mention it, it does look a bit like a gun...
  7. It's rainy season at the Village of Ahiru.
  8. I also run my store on my main - but I suppose it helps in that I sell a very niche product to a very small community, so I don't have a lot of customer service issues to deal with. I've also become friends with some of my customers, so that was a fringe benefit (and gives me warm fuzzies). My business is really more of a pet project for the love of it, rather than a way to make heaps of cash - so I'm happy for it to be connected to my main. But yes, your inventory will suffer.

  10. The title suggests he wants girls to work AS a club. Frankly, the mind boggles.
  11. This is from Mudskin. You can usually find the head appliers on the MP because they are gatcha skins. However: - This skin is designed for the Catwa Catya head plus Maitreya Lara and V-tech boi chest. She has two skins designed for Catwa Daniel, one of which is currently at the Neo Japan event. The bare versions of that skin are actually available for purchase directly, versions with makeup are gatcha. - The body skins do have an omega version but weren’t designed with the male mesh bodies in mind so aren’t a perfect fit there.
  12. If you wanted a more 'anime' style head, I'd suggest one of the BJD heads from Raven Bell.
  13. So, I’m aware of Mudskin (which kinda works) and Soul, but does anyone know of any other skin makers that have a “unisex” option, ie. neck shading that allows for a female head with a male body skin? Specifically, I wear a unisex head (with a female UV map) with a male mesh body.
  14. I've seen some pictures of avatars laying down with their hair fanned out on the ground around them, but my search-fu is weak and I can't find any. Does anyone know who sells hair like this?
  15. ... I feel an intense need to buy this body so I can be a Kimono in a kemono kimono.
  16. Sort of. The UV mapping seems to be slightly different around the mouth and eyes, though that can be masked if you’re rocking makeup. Best thing is to try it out and see what you think (because it may vary between brands). You may also have issues with the neck as male skins tend to have an Adam’s apple. There are some skin makers that make skins with a unisex neck so you can mix and match.
  17. Definitely agree with this. My avatars tend to develop a very strong identity and it feels weird dressing them in a way that is outside their usual style. If you don't want to mix genders on the same account, going for androgyny could be a good shout. Also, you can use collars, neckpieces, chokers etc to mask the mismatch in neck sizes between a male head and female body or vice versa. It's not perfect, but it can work. (Alexandra Nevermind on Flickr has turned this into an artform, imo).
  18. A few pop up if you search the marketplace under 'dwarf hamster'.
  19. Does anyone know where I can find a good, preferably bento, male AO with a narrow stance (ie, where the legs are ideally not wider than hip width when standing)? I primarily wear kimono in world, and most male AOs I've found have a very wide stance, which distorts the texture on kimono quite badly. I just wanna stand with my legs together ;_;
