Bunch of new skins!

Ben Vanguard | - Body Positive (Skins+Shapes), - Tenue/Outfit | Saturday, August 11th, 2007

Well, I don’t know how it’s going for you, but today is a terrible SL day for me. Textures don’t rezz, attachments don’t attach, my studio can’t work properly because of an excess of lag… Thank you Linden Labs! Consequence: no pictured post today…

It’s really too bad, because I have a lot of things to show you! Especially skins, new skins which are valuable additions to the choices we already have!

The time when we had only one decent skin for men (Dxxx by Nxxx, you see what I mean…) is over and it’s good for diversity!

We have now the hand drawn from Form, those from Chip Midnight, very photorealistic, the envision by Body Politik, the ones from The Good Life, the last three ones from Adam n Eve, some really good skins from RaC, the new “Advance Skins” from Aitui and, of course, the great Antonio from FNKY. More recently we were offered the pleasant Nora Entice for men.

You have seen all these good and very good skins on slmen, in the new “Body Positive” series (if not, follow this link!), and you will see them again soon!

This week offered us 2 new skins, and they are more than good! Minnu model skins released its new range for men, and Redgrave its “Emil.”

There will be dedicated posts for those skins very soon, I mean as soon as SL will allow me to work properly…

You can always use the following links to take demos and try them out.
Remember that skins are really different on different shapes. Please never buy a skin too quickly. Take several demos, go back home, try them, take your time, and wait until the day after to buy the one you like. :-)

Body Positive: CMFF, Nora, RaC and Stellar Design

Ben Vanguard | - Body Positive (Skins+Shapes), - Tenue/Outfit | Wednesday, August 8th, 2007

A shape and 3 skins, as usual. I chose the skins which offered the best fit for the face contour, then the best fit for the body, and I tried to avoid the one you can see everywhere ;-)

The shape is almost shown “As is.” Lexi Morgan made these shapes for Stellar Design. Stellar Design offers beautiful, sexy and pretty “stocky” shapes that will please men who want to look powerful! And because they are “modify,” you will be able to change and, maybe, choose to have other proportions one day! :-)

For this “Rocker” from Lexi, I just had to set the foot length to 30 for better proportions with the body, and the eyelashes to 0. With some skins, eyelashes look odd on men. One more reason to avoid no modify shapes!

Rocker is 6‘6“, so an average height in SL. He is powerful and muscled, without being genetically modified or taking steroids. Let’s say he must spend a lot of his time in the gym! :-)

Lexi’s shapes look great and appealing and they match perfectly the best selling skins in SL, but I wanted to show you black skins today, and this shape is one of my favorite for that purpose. Believe me, I mixed and matched skins and shapes for hours before the final choice!

For further information about the choice criteria, please read this Introduction.
