Losing My Religion

Losing My Religion

THIRST, the store formerly known as [AP.PAREL], has long been a favorite of mine.  Their clothes fit so well, and always look great.  Last week, they released this new set of underwear with the shorts that fit around them at their main store in Boystown.  For this photo, I decided to go to their store go get a city feel.  Boystown is a community made up of 11 sims focused on the LGBT community in Second Life.  There are a lot of great stores, a few clubs and party areas, rental homes and parcels, and even a bathhouse for gay men.

Along with the underwear and shorts, I’m wearing a new tank top from VALE KOER at The Men’s Dept, which I love so much that I had to buy the fatpack.  The fatpack allows you to mix and match the color like I’ve done, so that you can add a trim and accent color.  I’m also wearing a necklace from [ kunst ] that just came out at The Men’s Dept and a bracelet from Bad Unicorn that just came out today at Kustom9!  Full credits and a link to Boystown are below!

Call of the Sea

There have been so many amazing new things coming out so far this month – creators are really hitting it out of the park.  One of my favorite clothing stores, Noche, released this new tank top at FaMESHed, and I knew that I needed it immediately.  The details in it are superb, and the color options are just perfect.  This hair is brand new from no.match and is coming out today at The Liaison Collaborative.  It’s a different style for me, but I really like it and think it fits the feel of this photo well.  I don’t usually wear tattoos, but I like this one from Endless Pain Tattoos that is available at Totally Top Shelf.  These shoes are brand new from Redgrave at The Men’s Dept.  I’ve never blogged them before, but Redgrave makes such amazing clothing and accessories.  Full credits are below!

I Can See Clearly Now

I Can See Clearly Now

With today being the first day of a new month, there are all kinds of amazing new things that have been released today!  In fact, most of what I’m wearing came from events that opened today.  This t-shirt, shorts, and belt are from Deadwool at the Monsieur Chic event.  Monsieur Chic features a great mix of new releases and limited-edition items.  This shirt is a new standard release, but this belt and these shorts are part of the limited-edition set (which also includes a different shirt).  Only 100 of these are available, so if you want them for yourself, you have to head to the event soon!

This hair is brand new from Modulus for Swag Bag.  For a long time now, ladies have had the opportunity to buy monthly subscription boxes that include items from a variety of different creators.  Swag Bag is the first (as far as I know) for men!  For those of us who subscribed last month, 14 of the 15 items were delivered today (the 15th has some technical issues with the distribution system).  If you didn’t buy it in advance, it’s available tomorrow at their store.

These shoes are brand new from [Gos], and feature appliers from a few different items from their machine at The Gacha Garden.  I love that you can mix and match the appliers for the tops of the shoes, shoe tongue, sole, and laces (along with a couple of options for the eyelets and the front part of the shoe), rather than just changing the whole shoe at once.

Full credits for everything I’m wearing are below.  Enjoy all of the shopping that the new month has brought!

Land of Dreams and Ruins

Land of Dreams and Ruins

The minute I saw this new hair from Unorthodox at Hair Fair, I started working out this picture in my mind.  It just wouldn’t come together, though, until I was doing some photos for a couple of friends of mine earlier this week and made this Windlight preset.  Suddenly, the hair clicked in my head and this whole outfit came together.  This necklace and bracelet from [ kunst ] at Uber also fit it perfectly, so I’m glad I ended up waiting for the photo until they were out.

This photo was taken on the Hades sim, where I have taken a couple of photos in the past.  The owner, Pixel Sideways, keeps tweaking small things on the sim to keep it fresh.  It’s such a great sim for photography in addition to its normal purpose of being a meeting spot for gay men.  Full credits for this photo are below!

Cuff Me

Cuff Me

Fuzzy handcuffs have to be one of my favorite bedroom accessories – there’s just something about them that is so incredibly sexy and sensual.  Lucky for me, Ama. and Nais have released some fuzzy handcuffs and poses at ROMP this month.  There are two sets – one with standing poses, and one with sitting/laying poses.  The handcuffs have a few different metals to choose from, as well as a few colors of fluff.  For this photo, I’m also wearing a brand new hair from Exile that is available at Hair Fair.  Their blonde textures are some of my favorite in Second Life, and I really like this style.  It seems like a great beachy style for summer.  I’m also wearing a new necklace from RealEvil Industries that is at Men Only Monthly.  It comes in four different variations, and as always with their products, there’s a HUD with a few options for the metal textures.  The awesome skybox that I’m in is from S A Y O, and it one of the rares in their Ocean Oasis gacha at The Epiphany.  The bed is also from the same set.  Full credits are below!

On The Fairway

On The Fairway

The first thing that popped into my head when I saw this hair and hat from Argrace at Hair Fair was that it would be perfect to wear for a round of golf.  I love the way it looks, and even better, 100% of the sale price goes to the charity Wigs for Kids!  This shirt is also brand new, from White City at Boys of Summer.  I hadn’t heard of White City before, but I really love this shirt and can’t wait to see the rest of the store.  The choker and left bracelet that I’m wearing are also at Boys of Summer, from Just Another Shop.

I had never really thought about there being scripted golfing and golf courses in Second Life until I saw Strawberry Singh‘s post on her blog today about a resort she recently visited in-world that has one.  I looked around, and found the gorgeous AERO Golf Club, which is where I took this photo.  It’s a full 18 hole golf course, and as far as I can tell, it’s free to play!  I’ll definitely have to save this outfit and go back to play a round or two of golf soon.  Full credits are below!

There has been so much amazing stuff coming out lately, but one of my favorite events of the year opens up tomorrow, and I’m so excited to be an official blogger for it this year – yay Hair Fair!  This new hair that I’m wearing and loving is from Speakeasy.  It goes so well with my favorite blonde hairbase, and I think it’s a really great style for this summer.  There aren’t too many male hairs at Hair Fair this year, but the ones that are there are awesome.  I’ll be wearing a few more of them in my next few posts.  I’ve also been loving these new jeans from not so bad that are available at The Men’s Dept this month.  Accessory-wise, I really love this new anklet from Ama. that is coming out for Oneword on the 17th.  Full credits are below.
