Cosmopolitan 10/03 – Menswear

with one comment

Round 10/03 is now on at Cosmopolitan and I’m showing a couple of design bargains from the Menswear range today.

First up is GioMEN with the ‘Sand Shirt’, a HUD controlled multi texture shirt that comes in the standard sizing XS-XL. As a rule I usually take the L size but was using the M here and it fitted fine. The Vamos  jeans are also from GioMEN and you can find those at their main store and on Marketplace.

When you employ the HUD, you can change the body of the shirt to various plain and plaid designs. Also, the shirt and cuffs can be changed. So, for instance, you could have a plaid shirt with plain cuffs and collar – either contrast or matching. It’s versatile and here’s a picture of the HUD.

I tried wearing mesh t-shirts underneath but it wasn’t possible as they would show through the mesh of the shirt and I would imagine an alpha would be impossible to produce for two mesh products which were made to wear separately in the first place. So I searched around my Inventory and found a system t-shirt (undershirt and underpants)  which did the job well. System clothing still has its place in cases like this. See how well this fits into the jeans. It’s just a matter of fiddling like all SL clothing until you find something that works.

*Birth* by designer Silent Alchemi, is a long time producer in Second Life of exquisite skins, both male and female. He has appliers for various SLINK products at his store so if you wear those, go and check out the possibilities. At Cosmopolitan *Birth* are offering the ‘Milton’ male skin in various shades at a bargain price. In the pack you get the skin layer and a number of tattoo and system layers to provide options. The skin layers have a ‘trail’ of hair, with and without hairbase. If you add the other layers you can have a toned hairless look or a total hairy look with or without hairbase. There are no other appliers in the pack but as I mentioned before – visit the *Birth* store and be thankful that you got the bargain skin at Cosmo.

‘Milton’ is a clean shaven skin that Silent describes as somewhat ‘older and wiser’. There are some lines on the face and some bags under the eyes but why worship youth culture all the time? Older men can be just as sexy! Here’s the darkest tone – Tropical – in full view and I’ve used the original skin layer. Beautiful shading on this.

Here’s a close-up of the face in a slightly lighter colour called ‘Rainforest’. Add a beard tattoo layer (and I’ve used a 2nd generation Nivaro beard) and you get a whole different look.

My photos are not taken using any huge Advanced Lighting conditions but using simple Windlight settings so you can get a good idea of what will be an actuality for the majority of us in Second Life.

All that remains for me to do is to offer you a taxi to Cosmopolitan.  Until next time, cheers m’dears!
