Tenue du Jour / Outfit of the Day

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit | Tuesday, September 25th, 2007

Well, this is the first time I’m wearing such an outfit! :-) I was sent it without asking for it. I tried it like I always do and I must say I’ve been impressed by the quality of this complex “dark” outfit. It comes with no less than 18 pieces, a lot of prim attachments (9, including boots), 3 different pants and 3 different options for the “shirt.” It’s very flexi, and so very cool when you walk with it, and the fan seems to be a terrible weapon more than a glamour accessory. The maker, Raven Pennyfeather, does very neat prim work and shows good texturing skills. You can get the whole outfit including boots for 850 Lindens.
Is that the beginning of a complete change of style for Ben Vanguard? You will see! :-D

To go along with this outfit, I chose the “Emo Tears” version in pale of “Antonio” and the brand new “Enda” hair by Aemilia Case for Philotic Energy. Aemilia gets better hair after hair! I will soon use this interesting hair with another kind of outfit, and you will see how this wild cut can have a totally different flair.

  1. Nice outfit, Ben.

    Aemilia is definitely putting out some great hairstyles. Her textures are always so rich. Maybe you can encourage her to finally delve into clothes making?

    I’ll make sure I check out Rfyre to see what else they have in store.

  3. Thanks for branching away from the seeming fascination the SL fashion blogs seem to have for suits and neat casual into different styles.

    Sure neat is nice, but it’s also boring to some people.

    There is much variety out there in clothes towards the ever more popular Japannoise, Neko and Post-Industrial leaning people, yet a real dearth of articles from the two main Men’s fashion blogs catering to it. Here’s hoping ^^;

  4. After buying… The ends of the shoulder pieces were poorly textured in that the repeats were set too high. Luckily this part was modify so the four badly done surfaces could be fixed. This also allowed the shoulder prims to be resized.

    Unfortunately the belt is no modify. This means that unless you are an 8′ avatar it will be far too big. Pity. There should be no reason for prim clothes to be no mod.

    Flawed an otherwise great costume.

  5. oh, I’m sorry Sean, mine is modify. I’m sure if you asked the maker she would replace it for you.
