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.

Season’s Greetings 2011

I love making my annual Happy Holidays card, and I love seeing the cards that everyone else makes too.  It really is fascinating to see how much creativity and effort that people put into them.  Other than Hallowe’en, I can’t think of any other holiday that get people so excited in Second Life.  There is so much to do for winter, from new wardrobes to new adventures to new landscaping on your sim.

My holiday cards are usually generic, because I know that not everyone celebrates the same holiday every December.  Last year, my focus was the Parson Brown snowman from What Next.  This year, I went a little bit Brokeback.  Anyhoo, please enjoy your holidays, stay safe, don’t drink and drive, and remember those people who are less fortunate that you.
