Amputee as a sexual fetish is the latest craze in Second Life. You don’t believe me? I have photographic evidence.

Perhaps it was my sheltered upbringing but I find nothing erotic or sexy about this.   Someone please explain it to me.

A few weeks ago MADesigns was very generous to those of us loyal to their update group. Not only do they have some of the best male hair in the game but they are always giving us samples of their fine work.    They keep it very simple so that it is easy to find quality male items.   There is even a wall filled with gifts for men from many of the associated designers.   Last week, the group was given a large pack filled with hair samples of the new texture.

BareRose is not only a great place for avatars starting out their products are always affordable no matter what your game age. There is a freebie area for the newer explorer and a special L$10 store. Most of their other products range frpm L$100 – L$300. The outfit I am wearing is called Graffiti with a price of L$140. It comes with 5 shirt colors, 2 scarf colors, jeans, tattoos, a belt, and goggles. It is really a great bargain.

Another place to get a great start is The Free Dove. Although it is not as well organized as The Gnubie Store, The Free Dove is worth hunting around to find the hidden quality items.

Each table is organized by item type and I will use that to help with the breakdown.

Someone once told me that great men’s hair is hard to find especially when you are starting out. The bloggers from Savoir Hair created a store at Hairspray that is filled with hair to get you started in your Second Life. There are styles here for men from several designers.

It is always a good idea to give credit to those that kept us clothed when we first entered this strange new world. The Gnubie Store gives you a chance to try a variety of designers without costing you a virtual arm and leg. I would have been naked and horrifically skinned if it had not been for this great place. It is a challenge to find decent freebies and cheaper items for men in Second Life so if you run into a male newbie that seems out of sorts than point him in this direction.

My look came completely from the first floor but all floors have items for men. For $1L the creators of Fleur has a male skin starter pack. It does come with it own t-shirt and briefs but male skins at a discount cost are very hard to come by. Cada del Shai has several clothing items for $1L including rocker jeans. Shiny Things has a pair of painter shoes. Sheos for men are also difficult to find at a low cost. TorridWear has a set of long sleeve shirts that reflect my own RL style. Zyrraphotic Hair has a great mohawk that comes in many color choices for only $1L.

I have been wandering around Second Life for the past few months in amazement of the land, art, and fashion but there are some concepts that are completely foreign to me.   There are ideas I just had no idea people were interested in or even fantasized about.   They are strange, alien concepts to someone raised in Parochial schools.  This blog is to explore men’s fashion, strange occurrance and strong opinions.
