The NX-Nardcotix David mesh body has been updated and as far as I can tell it looks just as exquisite as before, so changes probably were limited to some extra features in the hud, like the doubling of the alpha save slots from 4 to 8 and the addition of 10 save slots for your favourit skins. Those features sure will come in handy for swift switches between outfits and looks.
Meanwhile we’re about halfway through the current round of the Men Only Monthly event, so I felt a strong urge to go over there for a shopping trip dedicated to David. An advantage of not being one of the early birds, is that I avoided the super sluggish lag you always get at the start of MOM. I comfortably gathered a modest but pleasantly satisfying haul and started pulling some looks together.
Take this combination of a pair of faded jeans with a t-shirt and suspenders from Invictus for example. I must admit I really like the “off the shoulder” look. I also must admit that the t-shirt isn’t a perfect fit for David. I tried all the available sizes of this set and was altering my shape all over the place, but even with the most ideal version (which is the Signature size) the back of my arms kept poking through the fabric ever so slightly, so I decided that if I squinted a little, it simply looked as if the fabric was a bit torn and worn. We call this impressionism and it’s something I use these days whenever I need to look at myself in a mirror. Monet really was on to something there, if you ask me… Soft lighting helps too. To keep this outfit light and airy in terms of footwear, I went with the NX-Nardcotix sandals.
While we’re talking about keeping the attire light, let’s take a look at a pair of shorts by Hevo. Using the Signature version, it only took some minor tweaking of my shape to fit into these shorts. From the frayed end of the belt with its brass buckle down to the pockets and the rolled up hems, it’s the perfectly executed details on this item that make it special. I wasn’t familiar with Hevo yet, but these shorts make me want to go check out their store. They are a great choice for beach walks on those warm summer evenings after a long day at work, letting the waves crash upon your bare feet and a refreshing breeze blow away the worrisome cobwebs.
I’m staying in the realm of shamelessly flaunting shirtless people with these three quarter pants by BeBop. Each single pack contains both a patterned and a plain version. While I do like fiddling with my shape, it is nice to find something I can simply put on without making any alterations, so I was very pleased to see that and NX size was included. The double waistband and drawstrings on these pants are a great idea and seem to suggest one is wearing swim trunks underneath them. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if someone came up with a layered item like this that allows you to easily remove the pants to reveal swim trunks underneath? That would certainly accommodate the fantasy of ending that stroll along the beach with a quick refreshing dip in the ocean.
Of course we don’t all live by the sea and for some a good way to wind down at the end of the day is to just stroll around in their neighborhood and spy on the neighbors… Oh, I mean, admire the beautiful gardens. In such surroundings I do prefer to be wearing a little bit more. FE Style has just the thing at MOM. Their nice shirt with three quarter sleeves and an amusing pattern had me yet again shouting “huzzah!”, because it also includes an NX-size. Keep it coming folks! The shirt is easily paired with for example Broberry jeans and Chase sneakers, both available from Deadwool’s Tailor’s Cabin.
Should the nice weather desert you, then there’s always this new sweater by Etham. It’s a good standard item which easily fits David in the TMP or Signature size and can be nicely combined with the NX-Nardcotix Finlay cargo pants and Jude ankle boots. What you have here is an outfit for cooler days that says: hey, it’s comfortable and looks effortless, but some thought went into this.
This rounds up my trip to MOM with David. All of these items will be available at the event till June 15th (8 AM SL time) , so you still have a couple of weeks to go check it out if you haven’t done so yet.
