Tenue du jour / Outfit of the Day: Space Invaders

Domch Raymaker | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual, Punky | Sunday, May 18th, 2008

I’ll admit it - I’m old enough to remember Space Invaders. I think video games had evolved a fair bit to the level of ‘Donkey Kong’ and ‘Mario Brothers’ by the time I was old enough to go to the arcades myself, but Space Invaders had incredible staying power, and spawned a whole host of ‘alien invasion’ video games the likes of Galaxian, et al. Yes, yes, geek stuff, I know.

Today’s outfit is my take on geek chic. I came across the monogrammed Space Invaders tee (by Pes Voom, of CCDM) in a Japanese sim some weeks back and really loved it, but it wasn’t till I saw the Astro Zapper belt with its Space Invaders buckle that everything fell into place. The toy gun that comes with the Astro Zapper belt is great fun - it comes complete with firing poses and ‘pew pew’ noises.

The shoes, from Coke Dreadlow’s Urban Bomb Unit, have been duly raved about by other menswear blogs, and it’s praise that’s well-deserved. Lots of texture options, and a great deal of customizability - you can change the fabric, the colour of the stitches, and even the sole!

To give more depth to the monogrammed shirt, I’m wearing it on top of an old pullover from Form (the Mesh Bleach jacket), which sadly isn’t available anymore. The Weird Monkey Designs (WMD) jeans, with their rising sun motif, are my nod to the Japanese origins of the video game - Space Invaders was designed and programmed by Toshihiro Nishikada for the video game company Taito back in 1978. The jeans are part of a larger series by Maruko Sakigake, which includes Amsterdam and UK-themed jeans as well, available from the WMD store.

Tenue du jour / Outfit of the Day

Nuno McCullough | - Tenue/Outfit, Casual, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Saturday, February 23rd, 2008

Keep it simple

Sometimes a nice T-shirt makes everything on an outfit, this time I picked a green one at FORM, the pack comes with a complete set which gives you the possibility to hide your bellybutton and only for a mere 50 Lindens.

And finally the star of this outfit: the new All Stars Tennis from Hoorenbeek, this model belongs to my youth and I remember to have lots of them in black or white, so I was thrilled with the idea of having them on SL, they are comfy, have a good texture and nice details and goes with every casual look; a must have in every casual wardrobe.

I simply love accessories, so this time I choose the black Celtic cuffs at Studio Sidhe; since the moment I saw them I knew I had to have them – their realistic texture make you almost smell the leather, the dog tags are from Aitui and the aluminum sunglasses from Moderno.

For this outfit I changed my hairstyle with this Philotic short flex hair.

Remember boys, keep it simple

Tenue du Jour / Outfit of the Day : “Civvies”, “Flesh Peddlers”, “Form”, “Zero Number”…

Perry Proudhon | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer, Punky | Thursday, December 27th, 2007

Several people have attempted “beaten” skins…I think Posy Trudeau has succeeded quite well with her “Fight” version of the Jack skin at Flesh Peddlers. Looking at the bruises and cuts makes your eyes water, I swear.

The War-Torn Gear is a series of tanks and tees in different neutral colors on jacket, shirt and undershirt layer that can be mixed and matched for various effects.

FORM’s F*cked jeans, shredded and duct-taped, fit the ensemble well. Tied to my leg is the DarkPANDA *Leg Bag by Nana Beatty, from Kana-Na. The outfit is finished off with Engineer Boots by Mai Runo for Zero Number.

Tenue du Jour / Outfit of the Day : Urban Angel

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual | Saturday, November 17th, 2007

Today we are featuring guest writer and photographer Harper Beresford and guest model Noel Mureaux. As Ben had challenged us to do, we wanted to present a little different look than Ben usually features, so we decided to go into the realm of fantasy and exhibit the wings of Pinion Feathers made by Seraphina Pinion. The wings, which are made of highly-detailed, flexible prims, fully articulate open and closed and realistically flap during flight. They come with a HUD, which allow several commands such as color changing, emergency flight, and built-in flight assist, which adds the realism of flying without limits.
