Making a Statement

Written by Maddox DuPont

Men have an inherent need to stand out. Generally speaking, men want to be in control, to be noticed, to attract the opposite sex (well, mostly), and to be seen as successful, confident and strong. This often opposes the way male clothing is designed in Real life and why it is so colourful in Second Life. With women’s clothing, there is such a great, broad variety of ways to express different moods; female fashion is flamboyant, bright, sexy, and fun. Men’s clothing however, is much more subdued.

Is it surprising then, that when some men – or even stylists, try to make a fashion statement in Second Life, their ensembles are often unwearable. No one wants to look like a Christmas Tree. Men want to stand out for a show – not for a beating. In saying that, it is still possible to express yourself with color, even if you are male. Keep in mind that less is almost always more – two colors will often do, in addition to black and white.

When it is time to make a fashion statement, I suggest you restrain your colors. Sure we want to stand out, but we still do not want to look like women. Rely on details to add color, flair and originality to your outfit. Men often forget about the small details. They are concerned only with having the biggest and latest items. That’s why you see so many guys addicted to muscle and red cars in real life, while in Second Life our male fashionists parade somebody else’s idea of style. Just because is it is a latest release, that does not make it fashionable. Remember, unless you are making a trend, you are following one.

To create a trend you do not need to be a designer or a stylist. You just need to be creative. Clothes are your palette, mood is your brush, occasion is your canvas.

Cool Spring Nights

Transition from spring to summer must be my favourite time of the year. The breeze is what I love the most. Cool breeze after a warm day and afternoon nap under the open window.

MADesigns Shapes for Belleza Skin

I often get sent skins to either use on my shapes or give feedback on so that skin can be improved. I came across Belleza just when it was released but had little spare time to give it attention it deserved, until now.

Wow just wow!

The source for the skin was one hot bloke that’s for sure. Belleza skins are masculine to the core. I would not recommend it to skinny, narrow hipped, rhino headed avatars – as there is nothing feline, feminine and child-like about this skin. Belleza are for rough and tough guys and I am predicting their rise in popularity that The Abyss skin has had when it was first released. Enjoy it while it lasts.

FLASH is one of my favourite releases since I have started to make shapes. He is so good looking and has recognisable MAD Style written all over him. This is one of those MAD signature shapes that is destined to become a best-seller.

For something more conservative, elegant and mature Mitch is a great choice. Redgrave tux is just perfect for this fella. He belongs in the ballroom or somewhere where gentlemen are needed to escort gorgeous ladies.

For more urban and relaxed note Marcus is versitile enough to go from casual to more refined appearance. This particular shape is styled with diverse number of items, taking it’s buyer to a total of 12 fine merchants of male fashion.

All shapes are wearing MADesigns PROMISE eyes (yet to be released). For a limited time ONLY MADesigns customers that purchase these shapes will receive eyes for FREE.

More shapes with Belleza skin are still to come. Enjoy another hot release from MADesigns.

Urban Stroll

Sometimes all you want to do is walk around the city with your headphones on and watch life dance to the music.

The Essential Shoe

“If the shoe fits, wear it.”

It was only a year ago that men’s shoes in Second Life underwent a complete revolution, however shoes only became real six months ago when Sculpties were introduced.

Men’s shoes are still very limited, and whenever I get asked about what I would sell or what I would like more of in men’s fashion, I say: “Shoes. More shoes!!!” Here you will find some of the leading brands in men’s shoes today. I have decided to focus on designers that I admire, and those that consistently surprise and inspire me with their creations. My selection was based on quality, originality and versatility of the items – not value, as I assure you every linden spent on these beauties will be a worthwhile investment.
