Face Paint

Nearly 6 years in Second Life and I had never thought about wearing face paint. I mean Real Men don't wear makeup! Yesterday I was transported to a shop called "Face Paint" by my darling Jula. Where she was chatting with our dear friends Marge and Eve. 
Eve is the owner and designer of Face Paint.
While the ladies talked, and talked and... well you get my point. I took a walk around Eve's Place. Eve had said she had a men's section. So I headed there. As I looked at her offerings, I was debating with myself If I would wear Face Paint. I bought one, then another, and another! Then Eve started loading me up!
Once I tried one on I was hooked! How did I go so long in my FASHION journey without even trying Face Paint!

Being a Fashionista is all about style.
Creating a look that turns heads.
Making a Fashion statement.
Face Paints by Eve Express will set a man apart from others. 
I just evolved in my journey of Fashion.

A couple of weeks ago I posted about my plans to join FMU ( Fashion / Modeling University).
Well the results are in!
FMU has to be one of the best places for a person to learn about the fashion and modeling industry.
I have been to several modeling schools, know the top models in the circuit, along with knowing owners and managers of other modeling schools.
I am not writing this to plug FMU, so they can get more students, which really does not matter since it is all free! I am writing about it because they really care.
If you go back 20 or 30 of the older post, you know I hate it when peeps charge thousands of Lindens to "teach modeling"
You can pay what you want, you will learn about modeling but one thing I can say is that you will not find anyone with the passion, that the instructor of FMU has!
Hermione Mocha and Cliff Sharktooth really care about their students, they really care about helping them succeed in the FASHION and Modeling world.
You know it has to be passion for the two, to teach 2 classes twice a day.
They are up front about modeling, the good and the bad. They don't promise you the "Runway" to Second Life Modeling. They give you the tools to succeed.
When Jula and me decided to come back to our roots in the gaming world, we knew that modeling would not be in our future. I just wanted to see how much things in the SL FASHION industry has changed. I for one am glad to see how the changes have been for the better in FASHION modeling. Glad to see that there are still at lease two people that really care about helping would be models learn the modeling world.
So why pay thousands of Lindens to learn about modeling when you can learn from the best for FREE! (Just think how many Wonderful FASHION designs you can buy saving those L$!)

The other day I received a note card titled
It is for a FASHION show on the 27th and 28th of October, at  Thibeau Auditorium, In Second Life.
I hope everyone can attend.
The years I have been on Second Life, I have met people from all over the world. People with disabilities In Real Life, that can escape the world they live in, and for a time leave those disabilities behind.
A place where the color of a persons skin is blind.
Where Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender
can go and live on sims, where there is no hate.
Maybe one day, we will not have to escape to a role playing game. My hope is that one day we can live together in real life as we do in Second Life.
If you have not visited one of the Gay Sims of Second Life, you do not know what you are missing. Some of the most beautiful places in Second Life! So lets support Tolerance in Second Life by supporting the Gay Sims and their business. 
Tolerance Free,

Hot Dates!

I have a couple of Hot Dates tonight! 
Now I know I am very much married. Jula has been out of town, and I am not one to sit at home. Besides Jula don't mind me going out on the town with some Hot women, specially if they are dummies like these!
It all started this morning over a cup of joe. I was reading up on the latest Second Life FASHIONS, when out of the blue, lindens started flying into my account. I know I am good, but to have some Hot SL woman to start throwing money at me! Was I having flashbacks to my pole dancing days? After doing some investigating I found a "Shouted Couture" store on some land I had forgot about. 
I really do not pay attention to my Lindens$ except when I go to buy something, and my card is declined. Damn! I have a bank!
The dummy on my right is Noemi Fuxia (name of dress)
The one on my left is LICORICE.
Noemi Fuxia is 29L$ and Licorice is 99L$
One thing about Shouted Couture, is that it never go out of style!
Either one goes with my out fit "LINEN" by MENLOSOPHY, which goes for 395L$.
Both of my shops MENLOSOPHY and Shouted Couture can be found at The Diva, Borgatti (32, 249, 78) .
Better yet just type in "The Diva" in search, while inworld. Hope to see you there. (My Lindens$ might be running low after my date tonight!)

Blogs Come And Go!

I should know Fashionista was one! I have spent the last week reading every Second Life FASHION blog I could find. Looking for the new trends of FASHION designs.
Out of the two hundred or so that I read only about fifty have made post in the last month. Of that only about 25 in the last week or two. Is FASHION in Second Life dying? I guess just like Modeling, the older ones move on making room for the new ones. I do have to add, the older blogs that have been gathering dust for a year or more still have loads of information. 
As a blogger of SL FASHION we should be honest with our readers, and the designers. Are we here to blog to get free clothes? If you read some of my older post (from way back!) you will see, I really don't care about certain things in the FASHION industry of SL.
As one blogger told Jula, " He is a little blunt!"
I call it like I see it.
As bloggers we have a duty to our readers and designers.
I would hope a designer who is wanting someone to review an item, would want a honest opinion. Do we take it for granted that they just want to get their designs out to the public? Could it be they are wanting an honest opinion so they can decide if they want to release it, or maybe redesign it?
I may only have a few designers that I will review, for exchange of items. They will get a fair review but an honest one.
Over the weekend I went by Nicky Ree's main store. ( For what I am about to say, I might get run out of Second Life!) I spent about 2 hours looking at all of her designs.
I would have to say I liked maybe about a 1/4 of what I saw. I made the comment to Jula, " I think Nicky must have worked at a strip club before she started designing." Don't get me wrong, all of her designs are well made. From a males point of view, I know I would not like Jula wearing a lot of her designs, but I have high standards for her! I did see about 10 designs I will be buying for Jula. They are some of the most Stunning designs I have seen in Second Life. If Monroe, and Hepburn were alive, they would be the first in line!
I guess what I am trying to get across, is as bloggers we should be true to a set of standards for our readers, but most of all to the designers who put long hours in creating a design. I challenge my peers to step it up a notch. Now you may say, "He's just a male, what does he know about FASHION?"
When you walk by, the first thing I notice is how you are dressed. If it don't turn my head I'll keep walking.
If you do turn my head then you can be sure it is FASHION!
(Nicky, you are a fabulous Designer. You are a mainstay  of Second Life FASHION. Now is there a chance I could get a discount? I promise Jula Carnell some of your Stunning designs!)

Added note. To be fair to Miss Ree, I did not even take into consideration her Wedding Designs, when reviewing. They were all stunning! I am a sucker for Wedding dresses, when I see one it makes me want to marry Jula over and over!

FASHION Modeling Universty will be where my new journey in Second Life FASHION starts.
Jula and I have decided to slowly work our way back into SL FASHION. Just to get updated on new trending designers and models.
So my first step was signing up at FMU, located an JCNY. The classes are free, and the instructors Hermione Mocha and Cliff Sharktooth seem to really care about their students.I went to a recent gradution of their students. All the models clothes were provided by Designer Angel Dessous.
As you can see by the photos the designs were stunning! The models could not have pulled it off any better! They did an FASHIONISTA show! 
Hermione and Cliff you should be proud!
I am looking forward at being your student at FMU. I may even try to forget everything I know about modeling!
