Le Voleur De Paon
So I'm one of the 20 male models in SL currently trying to prove that they are really really really ridiculously good looking in the BOSL Mr Virtual World 2011 competition - yep, I'm Mr Iceland of course. (Transylvania was voted out of contention by the Russian judges... curse them.) I'm loving it so far - style challenges every other week WOOOOOO! - and this time it was avant garde. Which if you know me at all is really the only way I bother getting dressed in SL...
I spent several days trying to make something all spikedy and geometric, and you will see this at a later date - swear. But things evolved as they often do when your fairy godmother Monica is a bit of a creative genius, and I ended up looking as if I'd made good on my promise last month to molest Frolic's peacocks. It's okay - it's a far more fulfilling life for them as FASHION anyway.
What I'm loving on in this post - the cape is called Magus, it's by Miamai and it's not out yet sorreeeeee but the Lenoire hair is, and it's available at Hair Fair until the 15th of July. Be aware that I've modded it a fair bit though, there's meant to be some girly stuff on top. I'm still mad about my Vincent skin from Tableau Vivant, this is the January tone and I also got my Claw Pants from there too. Nuuna Nitely makes wonderful bold makeups and I'm layering several of them here, most of them from her new Version 8 makeup pack. My Taped Guts are from Sinistyle and the Sequinned Leggings are from Fishy Strawberry. Just out of view - the huge and inventive stream of cursewords from when I crashed two minutes before showtime.
I have no idea what the end results of the styling competition were, they may have announced it but I was too busy trying to untangle Winter Junior from the sequinned tights. It's also a mad giggle watching the audience wake up when the very blindingly pale man appears on the runway after the Costa Rican guy and tries to convince them that dead with shitloads of guyliner can be beautiful too.
