Mesh and Mesh Again


Ok, I'll admit it - I'm a Luddite.  The mesh train came and went and I STILL wasn't on it.

But I saw the lot.  Got all Signatured up.  But I still wasn't doing a mesh head.  I've looked like me for a LONG time - and I was not about to give that up for anyone.  Then along came Bento.  And the mesh heads for men got a better.  A LOT better.  Like, I can look like me better.  So I started to explore and see if I could find one that would let me take the plunge.

After an exhaustive search (ok, I looked at 4), I decided to go with Catwa.  It was easy to skin and gave me most of the shape I wanted.

Most.  Until now.

On May 15 (Yes, I have a time machine), Catwa will release the Stanley head at ULTRA.  Stanley is the latest male Bento mesh head.  It is Signature and Niramyth compatible.  It is compatible with Nivaro, TheSkinnery, LV Designs, Bold&Beauty, 7Deadly Skins, Avenge, and Stray Dog skins out of the box.  

And it has a square jaw!  My life is complete.

Don't get me wrong - both of the Catwa Bento heads (Daniel & Stanley) are amazing.  Pic #1 is me and my Daniel.  Pic #2 is Stanley I presume ( sorry - couldn't help it).  Both clearly are based on the adjustments I've made, so they look similar, but you can see the subtle differences in the facial structure.

In addition, Nivaro has developed an update to the popular Orion Niramyth compatible applier designed specifically to work with the Catwa Stanley Bento head (This was tailor made for Catwa's Stanley Mesh Head but it may well work  well with the others - try the demos before buying).

Both the Catwa Stanley Mesh Head and the Nivaro Orion Applier are avaialble at ULTRA starting on 15 May ( http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Intro/128/186/47 )

Something for fellas!


Let's be honest;guys get the short end.  Sure, if you want "couture", there's a lot of stuff out there - but fun sexy stuff for the average joe just ain't there.

So imagine my surprise when I started going through eight months of submissions (don't judge!) on my Flickr group and came across the coolest pair of boxer briefs...made for my frickin' avatar no less!

From the erotic mind of Lee Valentine comes the Dickhead Boxers, made exclusively for the SIGNATURE Gianni avatar.  The boxers come with a colour changing HUD that lets you change the boxers (11 colours), the waistband (2 colours), and the knob (15 colours - she was really looking out for you guys!).  They are Fitmesh so just wear, colour, and chill.

I thought these were so hot I didn't even ask for a review copy - I bought 'em because I want them in my closet!

The Dickhead boxers are available now on Marketplace

On the Boardwalk


Time to mix in a little Home & Garden blogging with the fashion.  Any good photographer will tell you that the key to a great shot is location, Location, LOCATION!  And recently, while out and about, I discovered an absolutely amazing Gacha set that makes the most amazing setting for great photos.

When you get a chance, you really should stop in to The Crossroads Event and check out The Crossroad Rural Motel.  A rural, rustic set, this motel is incredibly detailed with the sort of old world styling that makes for good scenery and great fantasy.

And naturally, you can't go to such a quaint and elegant motel without the proper attire, right?  So make sure to stop in to this month's TMD (The Mens Department) and get your wardrobe on!

Laid Back


Totally digging the fact that so many new designs fit well!

Since it's summer - I like to spend more time outdoors in as little as possible.  Fresh off the loom from Cold Ash are the Owen shorts, with a CRAZY number of patterns and colours and the FitMESH v1 size fits perfectly.

There are so many cool things on sale this month at The Mens Department (TMD)-you really should stop in!.

Independence Day


So, it's been a little while - my other responsibilities have kind of kept me tied up - but boy am I glad to be back.

The title of the post is clearly a reference to today's date (July 4), but it also has another meaning: I'm celebrating my independence from ill fitting clothing.  Over the last few months I've blogged about clothing that fit the (not s0) new Signature Gianni mesh avatar, but in almost all cases, the clothes were either standard mesh clothes or mesh clothes that had been created for another avatar but I was able to make "work".

But today, in the spirit of our forefathers, I declare my independence from "good enough!"  Several designers are now making clothing specifically for the Signature Gianni mesh avatar, and several of them are on sale this month at The Mens Department (TMD).
