I sort of feel a little bit guilty about this post..but then again, I don’t really.You see, THE MENS DEPT doesn’t open until tomorrow, BUT Jez and I snuck over there, cammed in to have a nosey and, well, bought stuff.
You see this is the thing about TMD; you can sort of access it even though it’s not officially open (shhhhh!) Sure, some vendors won’t be out yet, but the sensible ones get their gear laid out well before time because there are always lurkers, like Jezmond and me, camming in and buying things. But it’s such a good event that it would be plain rude not too go and have a sneaky peek, and from what I’ve seen I’ve spied already I can see that this edition is setting up to be an absolute corker.
And here are the results of our raid…can I get an ‘OOF’?!
To be honest the majority of vendors weren’t fully in place but the ones that were, were absolutely scrummy, and we wasted no time in snaffling these utterly fantastic 2BYTE denim jeans. Now I’d seen a mention of these on the SECOND LIFE INVENTORY FACEBOOK PAGE, which has become my go-to listing of everything worthy of checking out in-world. I tell you that page is like crack to me, I use Facebook A LOT and when I see the magical words telling me that they’ve added new photographs I’m there in a flash to check out what the latest additions to their recommendations are. They only post the good stuff, and that’s why they’ve just hit 11,000 ‘likes’ on their page. That’s an amazing achievement for them, but well-deserved because of all the work that goes into the upkeep of the page. Long may it continue, and congratulations to all involved!
Anyway, back to this delicious denim. The jeans are available in a number of shades from light to dark, but Jez opted for the latter, and as if the shape and texture of the denim wasn’t enough, there’s the addition of a built-in shirt tied around the waist too. This adds a really funky urban element to the look, and can be texture- changed into a number of different shirt styles due to a HUD. To contrast we added this bloody outstanding sleeveless hoody from BLANKLINE. Not only does it have great styling it also has a HUD control to enable you to change the contrast colour to the inside of the hood. That’s not all, the hairstyle that Jez is sporting also comes with the hoody too (you don’t have to wear it though), and I think it suits Jez to a ‘T’. It’s a really great touch adding the hair to the clothing because it can often be really difficult to find styles to wear underneath hoods and hats that look effective without bits poking everywhere. Incidentally, the hair can be re-sized and you can select from a number of different hair colours too, using a (you guessed it!) HUD control.
So we’re talking tonnes of HUD-controlled mesh-clothing happiness here, and this is just two items that will be on sale at the event, check out the listing below…
It’s a banging selection, is it not? Girls, boys, Nekos and furries, in fact ANY Second Life sub-culture you care to mention, do yourself a favour and get yourselves down to THE MENS DEPT and spend your Lindens freely. It’s totally worth it.
Nothing to see here folks..just Jez stroking my pussy on the sofa….*ahem*
In fact I’ve just realised, almost EVERYTHING that Jez is currently wearing (including Jez himself!) is from THE MENS DEPT’s past and present rounds….wow!
