The SLipsters is my go-to blog when it comes to men's fashion in Second Life, not just because bloggers Laika Saintlouis and James Schwarz are so dapper it hurts, but because their pictures never disappoint. James has had two particularly gorgeous posts recently, perfect virtual pick-me-ups for a Monday morning in reality. Keep reading for all the details!
The top pic is from the most recent SLipsters post, "A Day in the Life". James is a big fan of the retro/vintage throwback looks like this, and some of his best work takes advantage of it. If any of the clutter in this pic catches your eye, you can pick all of it up (along with James' companion's Lana Del Rey-inspired 'do) at the current round of The Arcade's gacha festival, which is running until March 31st (and which I wrote about earlier this month.)
I had to share this picture from James' "Tour" post as well (even though it went up last month) because it might be one of the most evocative pictures of a male avatar in SL that I've ever seen, for a variety of reasons. I admire James' work because he's the antithesis of what men's fashion in Second Life was for almost half a decade and, even though some people still turn their noses up at his avatar and his style, I don't think anyone can deny that this picture is compelling at the very least. The colors, the pose, the styling, the lighting--all the little details are perfectly in place. It's just one more piece of utterly flawless virtual photography from The SLipsters, but definitely my favorite to-date!
