I am not very creative today when it comes to blog titles but I wanted to show of these skates from this round of the Arcade. The stakes come from The Secret Store, I have been wearing them since they time I picked up the blogger preview and wearing an old Ice Skate AO so it looks like I am skating. They are pretty fun. So if you are into retro looking skates, pick them up.
Speaking of pretty cool, have you seen this sweater from FATEwear? It’s one of the two new releases from the brand. Above is the Harrison sweater. The Ford swear pretty much has the same design except it is solid while Harrison is striped.
While we are on the topic of new and FATEwear, they also released a fat pack hud. For the Harrison and Ford sweaters it pretty much looks like the image bellow. Except like stated above, Ford has solid options
The hud for the Sweaters is pretty easy to use. The all color option sets at the parts (1-3) to the preset color. The part 1, 2 and 3 tabs only control that one part of the sweater.
Part 01 being the main body of the sweat, part 02 being the sleeve, and part 03 being the buttons along the side. If I could do math I would tell you haw many different combinations you can make with the fat pack hud. However, I am pretty sucky at math so.. Let’s just say it’s a lot mmkay?

I was going to write this whole long blog post about how I wish designers that created items for men would start using colors other than Black, Blue and Red. But I sort of saw where that would lead. “But Gabe this and this brand uses yellow” And I am sure they do. However, I still feel the majority of menswear designers stay away from pastel colors. Or colors which are stereotypical seen as feminine. I get it, your black coat will sell more than say a pink one or a light blue one.
I still think I find myself a little jealous of the females in secondlife, they seem to have all the colors and patterns I wish male designers used for their items. Like the store Auxilary. Their Collab 88 item this round was a dress with little ponies. I would love that print as a blazer or something.
So the whole point of this rant I guess is, content creators for men. Can I has a pink pony blazer.
With that out of the way, let’s get back to this look. For those of you who don’t know my blogging past, CheerNo was the first ever brand to send me review copies. I have always enjoyed them because they do the thing I wish more designers would (see rant above) so I was thrilled when they sent out this shirt in the blogger group. It’s PINK! I love pink. This shirt and a pair of jeans (Not the ones in this look) can be picked up at this round of The Dressing Room.

Now I know what you are thinking. “Hey Gabe Valentine’s day is over enough with this whole love thing.” And I get it, I feel you. In real life, I wore a “Love sucks but true love swallows shirt.” I get the pointlessness of this holiday. But guess who just got the amazing suits from FATEwear and figured you can tint them different colors? This gay boy. And guess what color I changed it too. Pink! Well duh. So here is a look where I dress up like a sexy sexy modern Cupid in my amazing pink FATEwear suit.
Now, the reason why I tinted the suit this fierce pink color can be blamed on two things. The first is the amazing music video to Kimbra’s song Cameo Lover . The other has to do with a kinky Valentine’s day party SET is having this weekend. I just so happen to have a men dressed in suits fetish. Sadly due to real life, I cannot make it to the set party, but you my tragic followers should get all kinkied up and dance your hearts out.

Summertime has come to Secondlife. At least it has in my mind. I always get slightly happy when I get swimwear or underwear as a blogger item. I’ll be honest, unless I am blogging or going somewhere I am always in a state of undress. Normally shirtless. Why? Because I am just so darn sexy
I mean just look at me. Nice sexy torso. Tight and toned legs and a big….heart. What’s even more fun than being naked by yourself in secondlife is having someone else join with you. In this round of The Men’s Department one of my favorite pose stores, Exposeur, put out a couples pose. I asked one of my sexy female friends to join me in. She said yes.
I don’t know what she was wearing, I didn’t ask for her credit. But damn look at her. She has that sexy “S” curve going on. Look at that nice round backside. During the photo, she kept pointing out that my bulge was pressing into her belly, and it was. I had to edit that part out.
Shout out to Magenta DeVinna AKA “Skittles” for taking the photo with me and not whining too much when my package was all up in her personal space.
Not only am I using a pose from The Men’s Department, the necklace is also from this round. I also used two items from The Jack and Jill hunt. If you have not doen this hunt, men, it’s pretty good with a few amazing items.

Around the holidays this year, I bought myself a pea coat It’s an Old Navy jacket, when I got it it was on sale for only $1o. Now, let me explain something to you. In real life I am a larger man, I have wanted a pea coat for years but admitting I was a little larger. But something happen when I was sent away to college, I stated to eat less, I started walking and weight started to come off. Enough weight that I went don’t from a size 44 in pants to a 40. Needless to say, I need new clothing. I don’t really know why we did, but my family talked me into checking out old navy. I can now wear their clothing. Not only that, I got my first pea coat.
While this peacoat from Sleepy Eddy is something I cannot wear in person, when I saw they were this jacket for this rounds of “The Men’s Department”, I had thee same feeling. So I was excited when I saw it and even more excited when it was sent as a blogger copy. So thank you to the designer of Sleepy Eddy for reminding me of that small moment in time this winter that brought me joy.

Hello followers. Or people who just come to my blog to mock me. I see you boo, I see you. Today I have a few more things to sort of write about. But before I do that, I sort of owe a few people and apology. You see, near the end November I sort of took a long break from this blog. Most of it was spent offline. During this time, I was sent a few review copies that I am just now coming around to open up. One of these items is Hoody Vest from Zanzo. I always feel a little bit guilty when I am sent something and it takes me a while to cover it on this blog. However, I am going to try this month to try to blog at least five days a week.
Now with the whole “I am a bad review blogged” out of the way. Let’s get to the outfit. As you can see I am still rocking these leather pants. I can’t help it, my backside looks good. I am also rocking some CheerNo hair. Speaking of CheerNo hair, did you know they were having a sale on a few of their hair styles? It’s true. A few of the old styles are being marked down to L$ 179. The even older styles are going to be L$ 99. Now there prices are for the fatpacks meaning you get ALL THE COLORS. If you are like me and sort of cycle between hair colors, this would be perfect for you. But hurry, the sale won’t last long and a these styles are going to be taken out of the store to make room for new ones.
Oh yeah, whic

I feel like I owe you guys this long sort of post saying things like “Hi I am back” And going into why. But I am not going too. Instead for my little intro rant. I want to talk about kittens. I love kittens. Yes.
Now with my little I love kitten rant out of the way here is a look for you.
This look would not be very cat friendly being mostly all black. Can you just picture the amount of lint brush rollers you would have to use to get all the cat fur off of your crisp black sweater? And what if the cat was one of those furry white ones? Oh hell. Talk about a mess. Speaking of sweater. This one from Levenchy was free on the secondlife marketplace. It’s one of those deals where the designer is like “You know, I could just give you the mesh demo with the sweater with the word demo written all over it. But I want to be cool and sort of just give you a demo you can use forever.” I find a lot of stores do this and a lot of them are on the marketplace. So to those designer; thank you for saving me some lindens.

Sometimes with fashion, you have to take a break from being serious and just have fun. That is what I did for this look. I took a few things I got review copies of and thought to myself “You know what you should do with these Gabe? Make yourself a unicorn.” So I went with it. This is what I came up with.

Fall is here! Thank god fall is here. I think I said this before in past writings but fall is one of my favorite seasons. The leafs change colors and cover the ground covering the ugly dead grass. The hair is cooler and it’s okay to layer. For today’s look, I have a simple layered outfit for you. I enjoy this outfit very much and have not changed out of it yet.
One small tip. To create a layered look with mesh can be hard now a days given that currently you wear a mesh item over another one with out it looking funny. If a designer does not create a full mesh layer look it is almost impossible. This is where clothing layers come in. The blue turtle neck is a clothing layer with a prim (Or mesh it could be mesh) attachment.

Halloween is in nine days! Are you excited? I am super excited! In the spirit of Halloween, I created a Grim Reaper inspired look.
Remember a few post ago I did that picture with the stripper pole. The event Fair which it is from is on a new cycle. Unlike last cycle there are a few male items mainly the make up (which is unisex) and the pants. The pants are part of an outfit that also comes with a top and shoes (I think shoes) but for this look I only used the pants. I will be using more fair items in later post.
