The monthly styling exercise with the NX-Nardcotix David mesh body was an easy one this time. I wanted him to either look christmassive or perhaps ready for New Year’s Eve. I found a great new outfit at Legal Insanity that fits in the Gianni size and the muscle mass turned down to 21. This makes David’s arms look less impressive than usual, but not weirdly thin.
The Legal Insanity Grant vest, trousers and necklace are all sold separate in a wide range of textures. I didn’t splash out on fat packs this time but found just what I wanted in this very stylish muted blue version. The necklace is a nice touch and I went for the slightly more daring pink pearls in the colour hud and matched this with some of the bracelets I’m wearing. All I had left to do then was pop on the NX-Nardcotix Jude ankle boots and I was good to go. I have to admit I often feel tempted to give up on these monthly styling exercises with the David mesh body, but I guess my soft spot for an underdog is prevailing and right now he’s looking rather suave.
Here’s another look at the Lelutka Alain head, which currently is a very generous Christmas group gift until December 26th. To avoid overloading their main store, Lelutka have put up some temporary locations where you can pick up the male and female gift head. Actually, I only picked up the male one myself and just went back to pick up the “Lilly” head, just in case I ever feel like putting together a female avatar.
This time I also picked up a group gift at Clef De Peau. It’s the Jamie skin for Lelutka Evolution mesh heads and it comes complete with body skins for Signature Gianni, Belleza Jake, Legacy Meshbody and Slink. That’s rather unique, because quite often these gifts will include only a skin for a mesh head and then you have to purchase the body skin in the matching skin tone, unless you’re lucky enough to already have that in your inventory . This time we’re getting the full monty, no separate purchases needed. It also includes an extra layer for that red nose effect, because it’s winter after all. I further embellished it with the freckles and beard that come with the Alain head for an altogether adorable look.
I hopped over to the current round of TMD (runs till December 30th) and looked for something Christmassy to treat myself with. The casual sweatshirt by Kalback with a classic poinsettia pattern was just the kind of thing I was after. I tried on several pairs of jeans, but many were cutting through the sweater. It makes sense that the Casual Jeans (Ripped) by Kalback turned out to be the solution to this problem. They come with various options for the patches and I deliberately chose the same texture for all of them making it appear as if might be wearing long johns underneath the jeans. You can wear these jeans with or without a belt and/or briefs. The sturdy Woodcreek boots with socks by Cold Ash complete this winter look.
Well holy falalalala me, Lelutka only gone and done it! They’re Christmas present for their group members (free to join) is a male and a female mesh head. Fully functional, all the bells and whistles and no strings attached. This definitely is going to be one of the better if not the best Christmas gift I’ll be getting this year.
Best not dilly dally, you’ve got till December 26th to grab the Lelutka Alain mesh head for free at one of their special gift sims (to avoid overloading the main sim).
RIGHT! It’s time to inject some Christmas content into this blog. After a couple of fruitless tries with the usual “the sim is full” message, I finally managed to get to the current round of Fameshed. I expect things won’t be calming down so quickly at this event this time around, because there’s a bunch of gifts up for grabs and this understandably causes even more traffic than usual to this already popular event.
Most of the gifts are for female avatars, which was to be expected, as that is the usual focus at Fameshed. Don’t despair though, because there are a few goodies for home makers and a couple of wearable items for guys too. Personally I was charmed by the free (faux) fur lined socks by Gild. What a clever way to encourage people to buy an item. I’m sure I would have found something else to wear with the socks, but that little Gild Santa suit was literally made to go with them and quasi irresistible for those of use who like naughty Santas, frisky elves and everything in between.
If it wasn’t such a cliche, I’d say it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, but so many people started decorating early this year as an antidote against the general feeling of dread hanging over us, that it’s been looking like Christmas for at least half a month already, which means there’s a good chance half us will be quasi bored with it by Christmas Eve. Oh well, it’s a good chance to get some practice for the grumpy old man schtick. I’ll be turning 45 at the beginning of next year, so I need to start training now if I ever want to become a full-fledged difficult old person. I’ll leave you with that thought and the credits.
Just a quick one to point out that the Physics Cock is getting better and better with every version. Animations have been added and there’s been a big improvement in the textures, with the option to stick with the previous textures if that’s what you liked, which is nice of them not to force upon you, so to speak. I particularly like how the hud has it’s own dance animations to which the penis is of course perfectly synchronised. Yeah baby, swing that meat to the beat! (yes, I’m proud of that phrase, thank you).
Again, the pull down option on Noches new Noah jockstrap (at Fameshed till December 27th) comes in very handy to set the mood as I continue my shenanigans in this steamy locker room scene.

My birthday and Christmas have come at once with the very sporty Noah jockstrap by Noche, which is currently being launched into the Second Life™ hotness-stratosphere at Fameshed. Actually, my birthday is rather soon after New Year’s day and I sometimes wonder if that is the main reason why I care so very little for it. I’ve even managed to forget about it once or twice, when I wasn’t particularly keeping an eye on the calendar. Anyhoo, let’s take a closer look at this jockstrap.
The fat pack allows you to play around with different colour combinations for the crotch, trim, straps and waistband, which for me personally means hours of fun colour-coordinating my underwear, knee-high socks, sneakers and crop top for that cheeky (gay) clubbing look. Of course, I wouldn’t be caught dead at such a place in real life. Or maybe I would haunt it, because it would be good fun ghost-pinching all those perky bums. My idea of a night out these days is finding a coffee place that’s open quite late, ordering a latte with a “morrotsmufin” (that’s Swedish for carrot muffin, one of the few things I’ll always say in Swedish when I order in Swenglish because it’s a fun word) and installing myself in a comfortable seat with my knitting and something playing on the iPad that doesn’t require too much concentration. However, I think that doing things you don’t do in real life IS the raison d’être for Second Life™. What would be the use if it’s exactly like you real life?
Some other things worth mentioning about the the Noah jockstrap is that it’s rigged for Belleza Jake and Legacy Meshbody, comes in four bulge sizes and has some fun wearing options, ideal for those of us who like to indulge in more adult shenanigans in SL. I also appreciate the different design options for the Noche logo and that you can leave the logo off altogether when a more neutral look is required. My only critique, and this goes for most underwear in SL, is that it would be more realistic if the waistband would go straight across the top of the butt cheeks rather then follow the curves. But hey, I often think that if Second Life™ becomes too realistic, I’d never leave.

Take a peek at what the guys were previously wearing in this locker room setup in my blog post about a Noche and Tylie colaboration.
For the past couple of posts I have been leaning more towards winter wear, with just a hint of thong. To stay with that range of menswear, I put on an old outfit that had “coat” in its name and gave it a bit of an update.
For the old outfit on the left I was using the TMP Deluxe mesh body and head, Etham Ryan Peacoat, Jomo Crude Mad jeans and David Heather Fred sneakers. For the new outfit I’m using the Legacy Meshbody with the Akeruka Clay mesh head and I’m wearing the Admiral peacoat by Deadwool. This isn’t a recent release, but it’s so well made that it can stand its ground against items that are being made right now and I really like the details on it. With the scarf, which you can hide if you want, it also looks a bit more suitable for the many snowy sims that are in vogue at the moment. I’ve had my eye on this coat since I started working on an update of this look, but waited till there was a sale on at Deadwool. Hey, we’re living in economically uncertain times, so don’t you look at me like I’m some cheapo basic bitch. While I was at it, I treated myself to the fatpack of Deadwool’s Kojima jeans, so there!
This wardrobe update also got me playing with a shape for the Akeruka Clay mesh head, which is one of their Deluxe range mesh heads. I have created multiple looks with the newer Akeruka Advanced mesh head, but the Deluxe range isn’t too shabby either. These heads are a bit limited on the animations front, but not lacking in good looks. I particularly like Clay with the Jonatas skin from Stray Dog. If you use this head with the Legacy Meshbody, you’ll get a pretty good neck seam result, which is always a plus. Even the free Classic Meshbody (of the same makers) isn’t a bad option.
Well folks, it was inevitable. After the previous blog post with the NX-Nardcotix mesh body in which I made a brave attempt to appear fabulously twinkylicious, I have to come back down to earth and conserve some energy by behaving slightly more age appropriate, a.k.a. having a lazy day. To be clear, I only mean this in the sense that trying to keep up with a younger crowd, can be physically exhausting. Personally I have nothing against mutton dressing as lamb. I do draw the line at wolves putting on sheeps’ clothing though.
A cozy sweater/cardigan and a pair of sweatpants is all you need to make a big success out of that lazy day. Spend it in bed with your favourite pet (animal or human) and just catch up on some sleep or binge on an epic Netflix marathon. Some light reading might be on the menu. Just keep it nice and unscheduled. The feeling of not having to do anything is one of life’s biggest luxuries.
You might not even manage to put on a pair of sweatpants, but just underpants and the above mentioned sweater works to, while you’re humming that Bruno Mars tune. Oh no, now I have given myself an earworm! Credits! Time for credits! Maybe that’ll wash it out.
I’m back to wearing something that goes squeak in the dark. The kind of garment that requires a generous dose of talcum powder to squeeze into. It’s so form-fitting that, even though I’m fully covered, it leaves very little to the imagination. Funnily enough, this kind of garment in Second Life™ will often find its way into the wardrobe of those that enjoy rollplay, where having an imagination is a must. Wasn’t Britney Spears wearing a red version of this kind of suite… on Mars?
Of course that latex thong singlet remains an absolute show stopper too. We find ourselves yet again at the backstage boudoir of a controversial Burlesque Boys club where our boys are getting up to some shenanigans in between acts. It will all end in heartache I tell you! But let’s leave them to it and take a peek at the credits
