“Summer, it turns me upside down
Summer, summer, summer
It’s like a merry go round” – The Cars, Magic

It’s been hot.  Really hot.  I’m not a fan of hot, because if you strip off too many layers in real life and try to go out in public, there’s a very good chance you’ll be arrested.  Luckily, it’s never hot in Second Life.  It’s also never cold.  With that in mind, plus the fact that you can actually go where you want, as long as you have your naughty bits covered in a lot of places, people generally don’t care what you’re wearing.

Then this happened.  Actually, this is an idea that got thrown around on Plurk, and I ran with it.  I’ve never made anything like this before, and don’t generally wear things like this, but what the heck?  It was a fun exercise and now I have Manties.

What could possibly go wrong?  No matter how you look in real life, your avatar is usually made to look dead sexy.  Dead sexy in lacy underpants is even better!

The Mantease is a set of panties for male avatars.  These are Omega appliers, which should work on the majority of mesh avatars available inworld currently, though you might want to check the Omega blog to be sure (Google Omega applier blog and it’s the first hit).  Just for giggles, the system layer underpants have been included in all colors for those still rocking the default Second Life avatar.

I can hear all the “Oh Mys” now.  I’m looking at you, George Takei.

Available inworld and on the Marketplace.

Young Girl, They Call Them the Diamond Dogs

Avatar-Bizarre---They-Call-Them-the-Diamond-Dogs

When I heard about a David Bowie inspired event in Second Life, my first thought was, “I hope they’re still taking applications!”. My second thought was, “Who cares? I’m applying anyway!” Then the third thought was, “Even if the event is full already, I’m still making this thing!”

It turns out I got in just under the wire for this event, and the item I had started to make while I was hoping to get into the event was coming together quickly and nicely. You see, I’m a huge fan of David Bowie, and I’ve been making Bowie inspired outfits in Second Life for years.

Only this time I had an actual excuse, other than typical fan boy stuff. Now it’s been sanctioned by an event with deadlines and everything.

InspirationsSL is an event that uses various celebrities as inspiration for merchants. This round excites me quite a lot, because Bowie is a constant source of inspiration for my own creations.

Diamond Dogs, inspired by Bowie’s Halloween Jack period (That short bit between Ziggy Stardust and Plastic Soul) is a fitted mesh creation, made for the SLink Physique bodies, though they do fit regular default Second Life avatars pretty well. There’s a male version, and a female/femboy version available, and both have been materials enhanced. Both come with a color HUD and an unrigged scarf.

To top things off, or maybe to bottom them off…they are boots after all, the Future Legend boots are sold separately, but were made to work with this outfit. The boots are fitted mesh and the package contains versions for both male, and female/femboy. The boots, like the outfit, have a color HUD and an alpha.

Both of these items are available at the InspirationsSL event, opening on June 19.  A landmark will be posted in a few days.
