Tenue du jour / Outfit of the Day: Midnight Fox

I was asking a Singaporean friend of mine, Junz Darkstone, where he’d gotten that delicate, ethereal skin of his, and promptly received an LM directing me to eXceSs. My curiosity was piqued - I’d not heard of eXceSs before, and teleporting in, found 2 really well-styled guys conversing with each other (Bvrve Cremorne, whom I’d later discover was the powerhouse designer behind Monogrind!, and Johansson Sicling).

There are some styles that I know I can’t do half as well as the people who are really into a particular niche culture - the neko (cat) and kitsune (fox) look chief among these. Johansson, on the other hand, seemed to have gotten the kitsune style down beautifully; his androgyne appearance perfectly complemented the Japanese origins of the neko/kitsune style - and then there was that lovely swishy tail of his! I promptly IM-ed him, found him wonderfully open to being featured on SL Men, and the fruit of that conversation is this post.

To achieve his look, Johansson started with the twitchy fox ears and tail from the Aventity Fox AV, as well as the black sweater and skin from eXceSs. He opted for long hair, reasoning that it would go well with the pale skin and the turtleneck collar, and chose a deep blue so that this would form an interesting contrast with the general gray/black base. The torn and stained Nekogear jeans, belted army boots from ShOOz! and wired legwarmers from Primitive Design helped provide a bit of aggro to balance out an otherwise feminine ensemble.

Also noteworthy is the belt from Monogrind! - there are so many grunge/emo/punk clothing and accessory stores out there, but Bvrve Cremorne still manages to make his items distinctive and special. Definitely worth a visit.

P.S. Johansson DJs at the Body Shop, an *ahem* gentleman’s club, on Wednesdays and Fridays, from 10 p.m. to 12 midnight, SLT, so go catch him there if you want to see more of his tres chic dress sense in action.
