No, Second Life is not a game. But yes, I am something of a gamer. In a vast sea of video games, the Elder Scrolls series (Skyrim, ESO et al) fits my gaming style best. And in a vast sea of hoodies for men’s mesh bodies, this one by TonkTastic fits my gaming style too.
Like a lot of guys, I’m all about being comfortable. So the relaxed Wyatt sweater from Legal Insanity, currently at the Equal10 event, was just right for a casual spring day, popping down to the local for a pint and stopping by my favorite hot dog vendor at MadPea Mad City.
Yes, yes, I know it’s March, and we are supposed to write about Spring. But here at Chez Silverdragon, in RL, it’s 16° F outside on this March morning. So this cozy sweater that Ascend is offering at The Man Cave shopping event this month resonated with me.
I am loving this big fat oversized sweater from Gabriel. With the coordinating muffler, it makes me feel warm and toasty even when I’m out ice skating on snowbound Seeking Wisdom.
When I was young, I worked on a ranch. This outfit is still one of my favorites because it is something I would have worn in those days. My senses conjure up memories of sweet hay, softly nickering horses, dusty dry roads and the golden sheen of sun-baked hills.
Autumn is my favorite season. It has an air of mystery, and teases us about upcoming holidays. I love the colors and the playfulness. And I get to wear sweaters!
I am often asked, “What should I wear to a club?” Without knowing more about the specific club, I often recommend a racer-style (not biker) black leather jacket. The streamlined, minimalist jacket is upscale without being ostentatious, and exudes masculine attitude while being quietly stylish. You can wear it with a shirt and tie to be dressy but hip, or wear it with a t-shirt for a more relaxed look.
So a certain someone has caught your eye, and you’d like to get to know her better. What do you do in Second Life — and what do you wear — to make a great first impression?
Anyone who knows me knows that I have a thing for leather. Without going into detail, let me just say that I move in circles where wearing black leather is natural. So it should come as no surprise to find me blogging about leather biker jackets in Second Life.
Lapointe & Bastchild is a Second Life classic. I commend them because while continuing to honor the Goth roots that made them so popular a decade ago, they have evolved and stayed fresh with their mainstream S’Wear range. A lot of creators were unable to make that shift, but L&B continues to be one of the best on the grid.
