Luka Look

It has been a while since my last post on MAD Image. Hair has certainly sucked up all of my time and this update was a bit of a nightmare. It took nearly a month to create new hair textures and redo 25 of my current styles, most of which needed some prim adjustment as well. Actually doing a style and making a shape was a refreshing and welcome change.

In this post you see me wearing my latest concoction and then you see the shape that I made for it.

The whole inspiration for this look came from my latest hair style Luka which is modern take on Grease rockabilly look. New skin from Belleza is absolutely divine, check out the body of this skin on shape picture, this is by far one of the best bodies I’ve seen and most realistic.

Valiant has lots of new items and here I used his double tank. I love the idea of clothing that resembles how we would wear things in RL, you know things crooked, layered, wrinkled etc. no cutout doll clothing.

Well BAD BOY has finally opened it’s doors at KMADD City. And it is no longer secret that WMD label is behind BAD BOY. Maruko makes some of the best jeans in Second Life and you have to check his BAD BOY collection. Store is located outside of MADesigns store on the corner just as you exit the main store.

Luka Shape is available on Level 4 as part of Body Perfect Collection.

Machonism

You might have heard, but I have been busy for whole last week with building Alice in Wonderland across 2 sims for Kirk Claymore’s (my partner) rezz day event. Kirk’s birthday party has always been a huge KMADD event as this social butterfly is loved by many, especially by me who always likes to go out of his way on this day by making something special for him.

This time is no different and guest will be treated to 2 sims set at Costa Rica filled with surreal wonders: mazes, landscapes of exquisite beauty, stoned caterpillars, peculiar tea party, army of cards, flood of tears and rabbits that are running late.

Well this is how I look when I am at work.

Who’s the Boss?

I am often jumping from working in my store on shapes, helping customers one moment to visiting events the next. With busy social life and time used on improving my business I needed to come up with a style flexible enough to suit both occasions, give or take a few elements.

This post is full of hard muscle – you have been warned.

One thing in common

Maddox DuPont for RUNWAY MAGAZINE

September 2008

I once visited an art exhibition that featured wood carvings of empty bottles that were painted over with washes of paint. As I held the catalogue of all the paintings in my hand I realised that each one of these pieces had a corresponding line of the poem allocated to it. Poem spoke about a complex relationship between two people that has come to an end. I later found out that poem was written by the same artist which explained a real reason for all the empty bottles featured on his paintings.

Couple of the lines from this poem stuck with me to this day and they go something like this:

“And we are connected in the way I do not understand
And one thing in common
Hating the way we want everything to be nice”

I often look at Second Life as a microcosm of the real world we live in. It’s almost easier to realise certain things about life as the scale of our world is far smaller while concentration of our ideas and tendencies far greater. It is not very hard to observe that we are completely mesmerised with beauty and perfection, engaging in all sort of crusades to achieve it. We like to be part of the community, yet we like to stand on our own and be recognised for being unique and different.

In Second Life we use style, appearance, engage in activities and careers that best express who we really are. These things are done to some degree even more successfully than we are able to do them in Real Life due to our genetic, financial and cultural constraints.

Many of us have come to the realisation that looking good and expressing our uniqueness is highway to success in any area of our Second Life. Personality and talent will only get you so far with certain people, but beauty is something that almost everyone has weakness for. Although looking good is not all and everything that is needed for success, the boost of confidence that it gives you is surely going to help break the initial barrier of meeting someone to give you the opportunity to win them over with your personality and talent.

Luckily to look good in Second Life is not as hard nor financially debilitating for most. It does however require a good degree of patience, resourcefulness and creativity. I presume that if you are reading RUNWAY you understand how looking good will benefit not only your modelling career but also your social interaction.
Thanks to some gentle persuasion from Maggie Mahoney and Thalia Jie, I am glad to be joining Runway team and lead you on the way to a better looking you.

As the creator of MADesigns Shapes brand I am bringing to the RUNWAY over 2 years of experience in creating and dressing men and women of Second Life. I am also the owner of MAD Modelling Agency and MAD Studio Photography two aspects of KMADD Enterprise business that is dedicated to promoting, presenting and capturing exceptional talents of our designers and models. It is my hope that my articles and experience I will share with you will be enough to inspire you to develop your personal style and give your appearance in Second Life the individuality it needs.

And now as promised, here is the complete list of items I wore for the RUNWAY shoot.

“Poor is the man whose pleasure depends on the permission of another”

KMADD City threw impromptu party for Marge’s 50th Birthday this weekend. I Immediately flashed back to the time when “In bed with Madonna” came out and Madonna’s subsequent movie and the book which plagued Hollywood and press with much controversy, so what better to inspire my outfit for this momentous event?

Forbidden, sexual and dark outfit.
