Newbie Style Challenge Update (long post!)

I wasn’t happy with the look I’d put together for the Newbie Style Challenge. I’d had something in mind, and failed epically because of the skin: my entire look ended up being built around the skin. I’d never realized just how hard it was to find good free skins for men. Anyway, big thanks to James Schwarz at SL.ipsters, I found Glamorize and their very awesome low-cost skins. Now I can make a proper newbie look! Hell, now I can make loads! So buckle up…pictures incoming!

Seriously, Mega Shark v. Giant Octopus is a masterpiece of modern cinema. What? It has Deborah Gibson in it. And there's this one scene where...what? Oh, like there's something better than a mega shark leaping out of the ocean and biting a plane in half. Whatever.

  1. Awesome! I was lucky to find that store. It’s very hard to find decent cheap skin for men that didn’t have a Jersey Shore tan or excessive amounts of eyeliner. LOL I like what you did with that scarf!

      Yeah…skin for men in SL is hard anyway, because skin for women can be smooth and it just looks like make-up; men’s faces aren’t smooth like that. So cheap skins for men have that smooth look, and it looks like you’re wearing ten pounds of foundation. Add eyeliner or heavy tan to it and it just looks nasty. And that’s what’s out there for cheap for men! SAD. So thank you for showing off that store.

      I also roamed Magi Take, which I hadn’t been to before…I was wearing shoes from Magi Take in that last picture, but cropped them out. Nice finds, man!
