One of my previous posts about dressing the Exmachina ‘Davide’ avatar has been viewed by several people who were looking for things to wear with the free version of this body. Alas there’s no such thing as a free lunch, or a fully functional free mesh avatar. Back then I was showing some clothing on the version of the body that has all the bells and whistles and that’s what I shall be doing this time around as well. The free version doesn’t come with an alpha hud and trying to dress it without being able to blank out body parts is just madness! The SL fashion market isn’t exactly overflowing with items that include a version that’s been rigged for the Exmachina body, but you definitely will find some pieces that work nicely. You Simply need to demo everything till you find something that fits. I paid a last visit to the current round of Men Only Monthly, which will end on 15th June, to double check if I had missed something on my previous visits that would look nice with this body.
The camo shorts from Hevo at MOM are a snug fit when you use the Signature size. Personally I had to fiddle with my shape a little, but nothing too drastic. I searched my inventory for a top to go with it and decided on the Deadwool ‘Henley’ shirt, using the standard size that has “waist 2” in the name. For footwear I went with the L&B Swear low top sneakers.
For the Invictus jeans and t-shirt with suspenders, currently shown at MOM, I used the Signature size. I find these jeans troublesome when it comes to easily finding a pair of shoes that goes with them without clipping issues. In this case I’m using the Deadwool chase sneakers in standard rigged size. To wear these I had to take off my feet and then socks were needed to bridge the gap. Aha, I hear you say, don’t the Chase sneakers come with a built-in sock option? Yes, but they’re too high and the little buggers poke right through the jeans! So the solution here is to leave them off and use Deadwool’s ‘Dandy’ socks (fitted for shoes, no leg/foot). Perhaps the unrigged resizable version of the sneakers is a better option… no YOU test it!
Then I got bored of MOM and remembered that Legal Insanity recently released some items that included the exmachina size, so I headed over to their store and found myself buying a kilt… I say it’s a kilt, but I’m not sure Scottish people would agree. Truth be told, I don’t care if you call it a skirt, cause it looks good either way. With some careful placement you may even be able to place a ding-dong underneath. Then again, you need to blank out your thighs if you want to do any walking in this, so the poor penis would be kinda floating in midair. In a test with several AO I did notice that if you have one where the walk animations take smaller steps, you just about get away with it. Even if you don’t care about what’s going on underneath the kilt, the good news is that it has a built-in boner bulge which you can make appear by clicking in that area. From footlong we swiftly move on to footwear and the ‘Ulrich’ boots with socks from Deadwool.
Legal Insanity currently have a pair of sweatpants at Fameshed (till 27th June). I’m happy to report that these sweatpants do come in an exmachina size! Moreover, you get two for the price of one. There’s the long pair that comes down over your heels for hanging out at home barefoot and there is a slightly shorter version for when you want to wear shoes.
And with that it’s time for me to casually pick a book from my personal library and go be all cultural and stuff.
