So I dragged Jez, kicking and squealing like a big girl’s blouse, from WoW and into Second Life so that I could take him shopping. Surely a guy needs a break from bashing Orcs and twatting Goblins? (You’d think he’d be grateful!)
I wanted him to peruse the new ‘Male Mondays’ collection. I expected big things from this, seeing as it’s been created by Gidge Uriza and Gabe Bookmite, both total fashion divas in their own right, so I knew there would be some fab stuff on offer and for an inaugural event it wasn’t so bad.
TP in and you’ll find a selection of stalls featuring content from well known vendors neatly laid out and on the whole the quality is pretty good…it’s easy to navigate which is essential for a bloke when he goes shopping. They get lost so easily!
The vendors include:
FEAR AND CLOTHING
LOVE IN IDLENESS
Most of the attire fell into the tees and shirts category when we visited..a few vendors hadn’t put their items out as well. Most noticably absent were KMADD, because you always expect something stylish from them. As well as attire there were accessories including hair, jewellery and boots as well as a dandy hat and cane from DECO! CLUTTER provides a very macho office set; The ‘Scottsdale Office’ is practically the perfect masculine working environment, featuring a desk and an office chair both with ten sits, (5 prims apiece) and desk with wearable pencil (16 prims). Sadly he couldn’t have that because I’m low on prims, but I did treat him to the SUR+ ‘Editors Cut’ pack of high fashion tees featuring leather shoulder patches and an assymetric neckline. Other items to look for include the beautifully textured ‘Henley’ tee from CHINESE TAKEOUT. There is also an astonishing (seriously!) pose prop from STUDIO SIDHE, and DIESEL WORKS provide some great male modelling poses too. I also insisted he purchased the swimming trunks from LAZYBUM…just because I like perving at him. Ahem.
It’s great to have a shopping event aimed at the fellas and I look forward to this growing stronger and becoming as much of a fixture on the grid as Fifty Linden Friday, wouldn’t that be something? Plus, our chaps would look so darn hot. Oh and the best bit? Nothing costs over L$100:) I know!
Now they have no excuse, right? Click HERE to take him shopping!
