Avacado

Hello everyone!  What a fabulous color this week, and what a wonderful time to do a darker color.  This week, we have “avacado”, which is, of course, a darker green.  My first instinct was to look for an military camouflage, but then I thought that would be too cliche.  And then Kal Rau released a new mesh leather jacket, which I absolutely love!  It’s also my first mesh clothing item too!

Dandelion

Hello everybody!  This week’s color in Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge is “dandelion”.  It is a lovely shade of gold to tempt spring.  I wasn’t sure what to do with this color, since it is another color not that common in men’s fashion.  I stopped by a few stores and then found these fantastic shorts at Bliss Homme.  I think I’ll be living in them all summer!  Coupled with one of the many comfortable t-shirts from 6T, this is the perfect outfit for the summer!

Folly

Hello everyone! Another week goes by and it is another color for the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge.  This weeks color is “folly”, which falls between crimson and rose. For most of you, that’s a fancy way of saying hot pink!

This was a tough challenge, because hot pink is definitely not found in many men’s stores at all.  That meant a trip to Schadenfreude, which has every color under the rainbow.  Well, under an elephant actually!  You’ll see what I mean when you get there.

Alice Blue

Hello everyone!  The next color for the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge is “alice blue”.  It is such a close shade to white that I knew this one would be a difficult color.  I started shopping early this week, and I’m glad.  After six weeks, my eyes are opening to the huge lack of color in men’s fashion. The usual palette seems to be mostly dark colors such as black, dark browns, navy blues, heavy greens, etc.

My original plan was to create an outfit that was blue and white.  This polo shirt from Redgrave is the perfect fit (plus it comes in some terrific other colors too).  However, finding a pair of white pants turned into a disaster.  You see, I have a huge aversion to white pants in SL because they just don’t look right to me.  I have yet to find a pair of white pants that don’t look like big giant pool noodles.  Luckily, these pants from Entente saved the day!

Patina

Hello everybody! I was excited about this weeks color challenge “patina”.  It is the color when a copper penny rusts or the Statue of Liberty.  But I also knew it would be a challenge, since this isn’t a very common color in men’s fashion in SL.  It took me twice as long to go through my landmarks, until I came across the store Artilleri.  It is a retro-fashion store, with a 1950s theme.  When I saw this bowling shirt, I knew I had found the perfect item.  A new store called Entente opened this weekend which was chock-full of new men’s clothing and this pair of relaxed jeans completed the outfit.

I”m also trying something new by posting both a close-up shot and a full body shot, so that it will be easier to see some of the details for hair and eyes.

Iron

Hello everybody!  This week’s selection for the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge is “iron”.  When I first saw the color, I first thought of a rust color, but no, this is the color of steel.  Taking inspiration from that, I put together an outfit that is strong, yet fashionable.  These terrific pants from Beck & Carter were the perfect item.  I would definitely wear something like this in RL to go clubbing or a night on the town!

Electric Indigo

Hello everybody!  For the 3rd week of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge, the color is “electric indigo”.  I have to admit that I had to do a bit of research first to figure out exactly where “electric indigo” falls on the color wheel.  It is between blue and violet.  Surprisingly, when I saw the color for this week, I knew exactly what to get!  The skinny jeans from Emery!  They fit perfectly, and it was a simple matter of finding the perfect shirt as well.  This week was MUCH easier than last week, and I’m very pleased with the result.  It doesn’t look like an Easter Basket, does it?

Coral

Hello everybody!  Here’s my second week with the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge.  This week’s color is “coral”.  And this wasn’t an easy color at all!  It’s definitely a spring color and spring is still around the corner.  I did find a few items in a few stores, but they just didn’t work for me.  So I decided to cheat a bit and tint a white shirt.  Not withstanding that, I really enjoyed this challenge!  Two done, fifty to go!
