Nouveau chez / New at “Hoorenbeek”, “PXL” & “Sysy’s”

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Saturday, March 1st, 2008

Sometimes, you see a piece of clothing and you just FEEL it’s been made especially for you. Well, I felt precisely that when Sysy Chapman (S.Y.D.) showed me these Bitchex T-Shirts! Cheap and fun, who can resist? They come in two packs, warm color (Black shown in the main composite) and bright colors (shown below). For each color you will get every possible layer for a top: jacket, shirt, undershirt, and the precious complement on the underpants layer. Each pack is priced at 125 Lindens; you can get both for 200 Lindens.

Also in this post: sneak preview of the new version 6 of Adam, a very good Skin from PXL Creation (in-depth post to come very soon), new hiking sculpty boots from Hoorenbeek (more to come too!), sunglasses to the stars from FNKY!, pants from Relax, hair by Truth, and another ring of the last “Mesmerizing mystical hypnotic” collection from Mhaijik Guillaume. Enjoy!

Body Positive - Nouveau chez / New release at: “Tete a Pied”, Vivant Men’s skins.

Ben Vanguard | - Body Positive (Skins+Shapes) | Thursday, November 8th, 2007

Introducing today the new men’s skins by Roslin Petion and CJ Carnot for “Tete a Pied” (which means absolutely nothing in French, but whatever!).

These skins are a total breakthrough in the men’s skin market, as they are priced at only 500 Lindens, which is absolutely new for such quality work.
It’s a very hard point for the competitors and an excellent one for the customers!

“These skins fall very nicely between photoreal and hand drawn. Like our women’s line, they are a hybrid skin. We wanted them to compliment our women’s line but gave them a little extra contrast to add strength to the detail. Each skin comes with a version with and without scalp hair and they are available in 6 skin tones. We might consider red haired and blonde versions if we hear there is enough of a demand and as always, we are happy to do customs. In addition to a Clean Cut and Beat (goatee) option, we’ve created a Mature look, a few extra lines and wrinkles lend the skin a dignified older man look,” Roslin Petion said.

Maybe they will offer some more facial hair options later, and if you can’t wait for different facial hair color, IM Roslin Petion or CJ Carnot; for a small fee you could have a custom skin! For sure we weren’t used to that, guys! :-)

You will find in this long post a first composite with the details of the skin, then the 6 skin tones. After the jump, you will discover the three versions, mature, clean cut and “beat,” a full goatee, with and without designers’ prim hair. Then last but not least, you will see how “Vivant skin for men” looks on 6 different MODIFIABLE designers’ shapes (I can’t say it enough: never buy a no modify shape, you would regret it one day or another.)
I tried on around 60 of them, and I can say “Vivant” is pretty versatile and fits most of the skins on the market. Anyway, I chose 6 which offer different faces and a particularly good fitting.

What I love: the smooth details; the totally successful mix of “hand drawn” and “photosourced” design; the subtle colors offered, the possibility of custom personalization.

What I wish: a better definition of the feet; more facial hair option, color and cut! This skin deserves them!

Conclusion: go grab the demos now!

Nouveau chez / New release at: “Cake” and “Tonic”

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Casual, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Tuesday, July 17th, 2007

• New “Rumor” hair by Stumbelina Ophelia, with a brand new texture palette. “Rumor” is really versatile and can suit a lot of occasions and outfits: easy going, stylish without excess, just a bit messy: you will love it! Get your favorite colors for 300 Lindens each, or grab the fat pack of 23 colors for 3500 Lindens.

• Static Schultz offers his first creations: elegant Vans-style Slip-Ons. I always found those shoes sexy irl, and terribly chunky and dull in sl, until these! They come in 16 different designs for 250 Lindens a pair or 3500 Lindens for the whole package (This package is not the bargain of the century, for sure!)

• Take a look at the pieces of clothing by Laxx Scarborough I’m showing today: quite comfy, but elegant and discreetly sexy as always at Relax. This is probably the reason why so many men appreciate the brand! 200 Lindens for the “Relax Police Truck - Full SET-UP,” 75 Lindens for the “Relax Boardshorts (Black).”
And you know what, Laxx will change the perms of his pants! It will take a little time, but all the pants will soon be “Modify.” This is so important to be able to modify the length, the cuff flare or the pants fit to match shoes perfectly or simply to tweak one’s general look.

Thank you so much Laxx for understanding your customers’ needs and changing your opinion about this subject which is, as everybody knows, very important to me! So, I will soon show you more stuff from Relax :-)

• You can see today the gold pieces of the “Leezard” series by Mhaijik Guillaume I started to present you yesterday. Nothing to add. I love the leezards, period!
75 Lindens for the ring, 300 Lindens for the necklace which comes with an assorted bracelet.

Tenue du Jour / Outfit of the Day

• I just discovered this “Static” Hair from Mystikal Hair design. It looks very natural, fits perfectly those with an active lifestyle and is a total “must have” for all yachtmen and sailors! 250 Lindens for each color, 18 colors available.

• Sometimes you want to be a little more chic than wearing a tee-shirt and you want to keep a casual look. The “Shellschock” shirt from Relax is a perfect choice for that. 95 Lindens for a color, 450 Lindens for the full pack of 6 colors and a pair of jeans (unfortunately no-modify, so I don’t show it here.)

Spécial créateur : Relax by Laxx Scarborough

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Casual | Thursday, June 21st, 2007

Very wearable, very mannish, very easy going, this outfit from Relax is a total must have. It’s elegant without showing off. Laxx Scarborough sells the pack with short pants and polo for a low 150 Lindens.

To finish the look, I added a cool belt from Philotic Energy, with a very useful compass attached to it. Useful, especially when the map is down! I’m kidding. The map is never down, neither the search, nor the tp, it’s well known! ;-) I also added a pair of my favorite casual boots, the Kangaroos by Leyla Firefly. They are useful if you need to walk a lot when the tp is down… I know, i’m sooo mean…!
