“After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion felt so good he started roaring. He kept it up until a hunter came along and shot him. The moral: When you’re full of bull, keep your mouth shut.” ~ Will Rogers

The Hunter

I don’t normally blog hunts. Just not my thing. However, the MENstuff hunt started today and I am proud to be involved in it. Ivy Maverick and Rob Moonites picked up the pieces of the original Make Him Over hunt and went on as Menstuff, creating a blog, a great lounge with gifts and organizing this hunt, which has 150 participants. My goal here was to show you an avatar completely made of gift items, which I have done. (And I had to run around to find these… random sampling and I came up with a darn good look I think.)

First is the sweater from Swaffette Firefly, the grand dame of great men’s wear, hitting that middle market where men want to look casual but not sloppy, dressed up and fashionable but not formal. This lace up sweater with sculpty collar is terrific. My jeans are part of an outfit that JShawn Thirdborn is offering. (A whole outfit! There are several generous creators doing this.) I even scored some absolutely awesome boots from JC Oskar (which are unisex.. hint hint).

The Hunter

My skin is Maximillion Grant’s gift for the hunt worn on the gift shape from the talented Ivy Maverick. Now, he truly did make this a hunter with a little tribal paint under the eyes and more on the chest plus a big hand print. I covered it up but it’s there and his ad of this skin is absolutely drop dead sexy. My hair and eyes are Maddox DuPont’s generous gift for the hunt, the first stop on the path. I lucked out and found this goatee at Jarythe’s place (just go to see the various body hair pieces—it’s *ahem* interesting).

Finally, the pose box and poses are all wrapped up in one amazing gift from Mojo Skytower. The men’s pose set is very practical and usable and perfect for the aspiring male model.

A Good Man

The tragedy of machismo is that a man is never quite man enough.  ~ Germaine Greer

A Good Man

I have been given crap in the past about not being “man” enough in my blogs. I wore this to a party recently and Voshie Paine nearly jumped me and she is a fine connoisseur of men, so there :P I think it starts with this white shirt from hiwinyu Fazuku—amazingly rendered with wrinkles and a great collar (white is NOT easy to do, folks). He includes a couple scarves with the shirt, including this striped number. Now you might think shorts are not masculine, they do just fine, especially on a man who knows who he is. These tweed shorts have a great texture and a fine tailored fit. My loafers are from Rob1977 Moonites, his generous gift for Menstuff (which is coming up again soon—starting June 3—woot!).

A Good Man

I think I know why Voshie was hot for me. First it was this skin from Ramses Meredith, which I wear with a body hair layer. (I personally LIKE men with some hair on their bodies.) Those legs—num! And Ramses has paid attention to all details of the male body with equal exactitude.

Maybe it’s the shape. Sophia Rossen has invested a fair amount of time learning the shape of a man’s body (in making shapes, that is) and this one certainly hits all the best notes for me. He’s not too muscular, not too overdone, but he’s still manly. Rowr!

My hair is from a (kinda) new designer, Doctor Aho, who is making hair for the younger male avatars out there—lots of straight hair and shorter cuts (no long or ponytails). His place is definitely worth checking out.
