A couple of days ago, I saw this blog post and thought to myself, that is one gorgeous male avatar. I liked his Nico skin from Birth a lot, and also the AJ hairstyle from Exile is really awesome.. and I shamefully, dusted off one of my male avs and copied his look! 😀 I’m not terribly original with my male av, but I wanted to challenge myself and make a complete male av this time, with ao, too!
So thank you, Mister Klaber, for the inspiration.
When I’ve dressed up my male av in the past (for vendor ads), I’ve always looked at Bronson Twine’s blog for the latest in menswear. I found this yummy Redgrave shirt from one of his posts, and headed to RG for more goodies. I bought the Polo Shirt, Pants and Sneakers at RG and finished off the look with a new Ultimate Cigarette from Hermony. I’ve decided that my av is a smoker, but he’s trying to quit. It looks cool on him, though! I have a really old cigarette from FKNY, and now Gogo wants a new ciggy too.
My Plurk and Flickr friends have all said that this looks like boy Lady Gaga or a woman in drag! Hmmmmm…. I want to make him manlier, I just don’t know how. I think Oz (that’s his name) is ok with being smaller than most men on the grid.
Overall, I’m happy with this look and my next one might be tackling beachwear! Cos he does hang out at Juicy, after all.
I really don’t want to out my alt’s name, but I’ve had people pose as bloggers for JuicyBomb before, sooo… all you need to know is his name is Oz, and hes 3+ years old. He’ll never approach any designers cos he does not blog here and will never ask for review copies.
Note: On the first picture, I noticed the collar wasn’t positioned right after I had already cropped the images! 🙁 Sorry for the obvious fashion fail! Oz is not a very good fashionista.
