Mm. I got lost exploring the Japanese sims again. My favorite place to browse is creators pavilion sim. This time I found a store called Last Ride (where I bought my apple shirt) and its totally awesome. An equal inventory for men and women for a small store and really cute stuff. If i were a girl I would totally rape it. So check it out gals! Oh, and creators pavillion is having a sale, so it’s a good time to stop by.

I love browsing ETD and finding hair that makes me want to yell “UNISEX!”. There are some hair stores struggling to make long mens hair but really, honestly failing miserably. The mens long hair they make and sell is so ugly and feminine even the romance book fabio men will spit on them. Thankfully, elikapika (who is currently MIA because of computer issues or something) makes nice long hair that I secretly wear as a man. This one is called “Deidra” but lets call it “Deidro”. Its my new favorite long hairstyle. Wee!

I followed a link on the fashion feed to this watch and was so happy it came in a simple black. How often do you come across fashionably acceptable mens accessories? ALMOST NEVER. So this watch is a catch. Exploring the sim appropriately named “Ganesha” (beloved elephant deity) I stumbled on a cute store called Lovecraft where I found this CUTE monkey bag! They also had this nice red plaid backpack but hmm… plaid backpack vs. monkey backpack. Sorry plaid but you’ll have to wait.

I tried tried tried hard not to include any Armidi today. Not because we don’t love Armidi but because they are the obvious fashion power house who really has everything. — I ended up caving in and investing in these awesome emo stiched pants which are slightly different from my chino’s I have from them. Also I picked up  these cherry red shades from them a while back and was happy it worked out with today’s outfit.

Ofcourse everyone knows Shiny Things signature Painters Shoes. If you dont you should. Because 1) They’re awesome 2) They’re Free 3) They’re awesome

Well, that’s a wrap. Ciao lovelies!

yellow party kitten

Posted by Lucas Lameth on May 7, 2008

This look was a lot of fun. I promised myself to only play style diary for an hour but time flies! >_<

It all started with the Paper Couture mens outfit called ‘Plaid Casual’ but this look is pretty formal for the local hipster attending a fancy party. Kind of like how those South Park creators walked down the red carpet in J-Lo’s green bewb dress. Mind you they are hairy men with growing beer bellies. This outfit is like that in terms of statement except way less extreme. That is of course if the party is going to be super posh and you expect the other men to be penguins. — If you’re going to the prom with the cool kids then this is a fun get-up. Your parents will say “Is that how you want to remember your prom or [insert important event here] for the rest of your life?” and you respond “Hell fucking yes, Mother!”. Oh, and edited the pants to become shorts and put baggy in Appearance Mode to max. Here’s a picture of the South Park guys for your private pleasure and a funny penguin suit cartoon:

Fashion is not wearing the J-Lo dress as a man and not looking mundane like a pengiun.

It’s in-between the two. You figure out the rest.

(EDIT: Unless you’re a fabulous tranny or drag queen)

The boom box by FNKY (called “BigBass Boombox” aka “Big ASS BoomBox”) I’ve had in combo with this PC outfit for a while now and today I had the opportunity to show it off. I went back to UBU (AGAIN!) this time pick up the PornStar high lace boots. Since it has a gazillion different options (maybe like 30×3) today we added some polka-dots and made the laces yellow and voila! Hip hair from Armidi cover half your face because everyone will be flirting with you and you want to drive them mad by hiding your eyes and with a little extra more with Armidi sunglasses. Which I own in like five colors because they are too awesome to just own one.

Now, I know what you were first thinking when you saw this style post. Either: “Wow, that’s a lot of yellow.” or “Wow, that’s a lot of pussy.” If you thought the first part, yellow is totally acceptable in spring. Kick it! If you noticed the pussy, then this Mean White Kitty is just uber and you need him. He has a million different poses (ok, maybe like ten) that he randomly goes through including licking his nuts or scratching you or your friends eyes out if they dare touch him (not shown). The package also comes with one black and one white kitten which makes it the perfect friendship bracelet in prim-kitty-kat form.

Cheers!

Cotton Candy Tart

Posted by Lucas Lameth on May 6, 2008

Only one outfit today! I’ve been shopping too much and having lots of fun putting together these style posts but I’ve been heavily neglecting my other Second Life projects. My shop therapy quickly evolved into indulge shopping. So at the end of my SL day I think I will focus on one outfit and evenly distribute my caffeine highs.

This outfit was again inspired by a shirt from H&V (Heart Attack & Vine). I love the colors and style. It reminded me of Wonder Bread. Or maybe a t-shirt a little boy in the 50’s would sport in a milk commercial, a Lassie show or Pleasantville. At first I wore shorts with the shirt but that was TOO boyish and I wanted to “man-up” the outfit but also keep the “I’m going to the Carnival, ta-la-la” look. — Yesterday a stranger AV hit on me in IM starting with, “Cute AV but how old are you? You look underage” but after I told him I was twenty-three he emote sighed in relief and continued his charm. Which was lame anyway.

I bought new boots from UBU (Urban Bomb Unit) again because they just happen to match my new shirt. I wanted to buy some high-lace boots of theirs but this was totally better even though I have the black skull version. Also picked up Noam Sprocket’s latest sex hair release. It took effort to mod it onto my fat head but alas it was a success! My awesome cute Watermelon Bag by Shunta Watanabe is from the Koreshan Bake Sale this past weekend. I sure hope its not discontinued because its so cute and hella stylish. Kiwi and Orange versions are also sold seperately. I snatched the Kiwi, too. 

I wanted one of those big circle swirl hypnotic colored lollipops but I couldn’t find any in SL so I settled for this awesome sculpted free Cotton Candy from Rave Nation. I also found this neck star tattoo that that comes in all layers from Rave Nation (undershirt, shirt, jacket) and you gotta love that! I was able to keep my Aitui tattoo and wear the Star tat as a a shirt layer. Anyway, cheers!

Style Diary: Lucas Lameth

Style Diary: Lucas Lameth

Three new looks today inspired by Heart Attack & Vine apparel. I followed a link by Phoenix Chapman of ‘Be Less Stupid’ blog loving the style and color palette of the clothes. While all women clothes were posted, I saw a particular shirt/vest combo I could potentially convert to male fashion. However to my valiant surprise H&V had a mysterious staircase leading down to a basement where it was filled with all sorts of trendy men’s clothes. Hah! I hate stores like this in Second Life because I become their devote loyal customer (their witty clothing names help, too). It makes me want to rip my Avatars clothing from my monitor and wear it myself in first life. However, fashioning yourself in Second Life can be a great way to experiment before you invest in real life price tags on your mission to style. — So on to my H&V love affair!

Look # 1 – Very skater chic. If I can say that without letting on my homo then so be it. H&V had a few graphic-t’s all of which I adore and will most likely find combos for. By the good graces of fashion all layers are included! (undershirt, shirt, jacket). I scrunched up my Armidi jeans and invested in the Maitreya Men Desert Boots. These are high quality boots every man should own. It comes with tied or untied lace options which is pretty neat. My hair is Taylor by ETD which is sold as a womans hair but its perfect for guys looking for long hair without looking girly.

Look # 2 – I’m a cardigan whore. So this H&V cardigan was a must have off the bat. The texturing is excellent and so are the sculpty scrunched sleeves. The two-button style make it more interesting and it comes stapled with a yellow/white shirt. I don’t mind when designers/content creators pre-set your clothing layers for you when they obviously have good taste. White sneakers have been a necessary fashion trend since I can remember and hasn’t ended yet. From prep to ghetto every good style-guy owns a good pair of white sneakers which they meticulously groom. Get them at DETOUR along with a variety of other sneakers for men (and women).

Look # 3 – Another cardigan from H&V. This one with hipster flavor. I paired it with a delicious bag from Xia Xevious. Made for women but I saw the bag as the perfect murse (man-purse). All you budding metrosexuals can get away with it. — My shoes are PornStar Slip-ons by UBU (Urban Bomb Unit). There are a lot of van-like slip-ons popping up in-world (Akeyo, Truth, Aitui, Shiny Things) and they are all fantastic but what makes UBU shoes stand out is their fabric/stitches/sole change on command to so many options and you can change one shoe if not both for extra flavor. Not to mention the excellent sculpty and texture work. Get them. You need them.
