The 9th edition of Men Only Hunt (MOH9) runs throughout the month of April. I have hunted down sneaky little hiding mustaches in 48 shops and I’m working my way through unpacking and trying them. Doesn’t that sound like a wonderful way to keep yourself out of trouble? Concerning the practical information about MOH9, I’ll do the wise thing and point you to the organizer’s official site.
For this post the images have been processed as little as possible to give you an honest impression of the items. So now without any further ado…
At No.17 in the MOH9 hud you’ll find 7 Deadly S[k]ins and their gift is this “Jaxx” skin Omega applier, used here on the Akeruka “Mike” mesh head and combined with the TMP body using the matching applier, which you can purchase separately at 7DS. So far I haven’t found any appliers for the Akeruka head that work equally well as the original skin. In my opinion, 7DS makes their male faces look too serious. “I’ll be like: dude crack a smile already.” This skin also doesn’t quite work around the eyes, but the shading on the nose and cheekbones is pleasing. Of course if your mesh head doesn’t take Omega skins or you’re not using mesh at all, than this gift is useless.
Illi at No.33 is giving us sturdy yet stylish “Brad Work Boots” in light blue and have thrown in a swanky hipster bag to complete the look. The package contained versions for the Adam, Aesthetic, Signature, Slink and TMP mesh bodies. Sadly again it doesn’t look like these will work with a standard body.
The rather hard to find mustache at FE Style (No. 6) contains this very well made tartan “Wagner Flat Cap” which was easy to fit and should work on most heads when leaving off your hair. It’s combined here with the “Starboy hoody”, from American Bazaar (No. 1). Weirdly the TMP version for that hoody didn’t work well for me, but the fitmesh version was being less troublesome.
MOH9 takes you to plenty of places where the prize is a set of poses. I will not be showing all of these in this blog, but I’m sure they will proof useful in the future. In the pictures below I’m using a couple of poses you will get from Grafica at No. 31.
Head over to Bad Unicorn at No. 48 and find the mustache for this “Fucking Unicorn” Cap. It’s simple but effective.
If you just can’t get enough of hats, you should run over to Elysium at No. 20 and find the mustache for this beret which comes in 3 versions. Just go into edit mode to stretch it till it fits your big old head.
Are you looking for bling, sir? Make your way to the very spooky Obscure store at No. 40 and find this “Hope” necklace. The joke is, that this item is actually from the Women Only Hunt. You will find a mustache at this shop as well if you search a little harder. Personally I don’t scare away easily from trying stuff that is made for women. I find it laughable how some men will turn into a quivering bowl of jelly in real life if they enter a store where the male and female range aren’t very clearly separated. Oh no, what if that jacket that looks good on them actually was made with women in mind? The horror! GROW UP!
Let’s get some kick-ass ink at Identity (No. 47). This hot pair of “Bleeding Heart” tattoo sleeves comes in TMP and Omega applier versions as well as a good old classic avatar tattoo layer.
If you feel like dusting off those old ZZ-top records than this ZZ-beard from Labyrinth at No. 29 should help you to get into the mood. The darn thing had no resizing script and couldn’t be edited, but this isn’t my thing at all so I wasn’t really bothered. Still, maybe there will be a fancy dress party at some point where it will come in handy.
Back to jewelry with this cool Diablo septum ring by Rebellion (No. 14). You will most probably have to go into edit mode and drag it into place. Note that the colour hud also contains the resizing script.
The minute and hour hands are slightly to bright on this hipsta watch by PBM Enterprises (No. 19).
From Gabriel at No. 18 in the list, we get this elegant, sexy open hoodie with just a whiff of the hipster about it. I wonder which bodies this works with, because none of the three versions included made that clear and they all seemed to work on my TMP body and look the same. My wardrobe already contains several pieces by Gabriel, so it didn’t took me long to put together a simple all black outfit with this hoodie. For a bigger, better, bolder picture head over to my Flickr page.
Get tough and rough with this barbed wire armband from Legal Insanity (No. 22) which comes in gold, silver and black.
You too can be one of those hipsters that wear stuff ironically by donning this top with a “hipster deer” print from Ducknipple at No.46. One of my friends asked me why I was wearing a Christmas sweater so I had to kindly but firmly correct him: no dear, I’m being all hipstaaaah. Some people just don’t get it.
Le Poppycock at No. 16 will set you up with a number of “Stay Fly” poses, including the props like the crate and paper plane. Just add them to your outfit and you can use them anywhere to take that perfect snapshot for sprucing up your profile.
