49. Sartoria S21 Portofino pink suit
 


Designer of the Sartoria Portofino suit: traveller Bade. This clothing set comprises pink jacket in open and closed versions with brown striped handerchief in the top pocket, matching pink trousers with brown belt, and white shirt/brown striped tie combination. The jackets are constructed in two parts on the jacket and skirt layers. PeeWee is wearing the closed version of the jacket in image 5. He has removed the jacket in image 6 revealing the shirt underneath.
 


The shoes are Kalnins Elegance, designer: Maris Kanto, set to colour 'Sandrift'. For all eleven colours of this shoe see item 42, on page 2. PeeWee's hairstyle is Brad in 'Castano' (chestnut) by designer Diane Storaro. PeeWee is wearing on the right wrist, a Bootlag heavy silver bracelet (designer: Vera Leven). Location of above images: Old York.

50. Phoenix Rising cardigan, shirts and trousers
 


Designer of clothing: Danial Guisse. The garments illustrated here are green Everywhere cardigan, green William shirt, white William shirt, green Theatrical trousers and white Theatrical trousers, all purchased separately from the same Phoenix Rising store.

In the picture above, PeeWee is wearing the long version of the green cardigan with sleeve prims, the long version of the white shirt with collar prim, and the green trousers with lower leg prims. The cardigan is on the jacket layer; the shirt is on the shirt and pants layers; the trousers are on the underpants layer. The shirt collar is rather large - it had to be stretched to match the rather wide "V" of the shirt which depends on the size of the avatar. The cardigan, worn long here, can alternatively be worn tucked, but not in combination with the shirt (which is not provided on the undershirt layer). In image 5, PeeWee is wearing the tucked cardigan over a white t-shirt from SF Design (designer: swaffette Firefly).

In the next picture, the cardigan has been removed and the white shirt is worn in the tucked version, with sleeve prims added. The green trousers have been replaced with the white ones. See image 6. As you can see in this picture, the trousers, although nominally "white", look like they have been washed in brand-X. The brown calfskin shoes in this picture are Cattivo Vanguard (designer: Lissa Maertens). In image 7, PeeWee has replaced the white shirt with the green one worn long.

For the final pictures (images 8 and 9) I have combined the white Phoenix Rising shirt with Armidi Gisaci Ruvido Slacks in Bianco (designers: Hudsen Armidi and London Armidi). The white shoes (also featured in the video) are Swank Brothers Oxford white dress shoes (designer: Doc Wrangler). This combination makes a fine set of white clothes.
 


The shoes above are Hoorenbeek Margin set to green suede (designer: Limer Fredriksson). PeeWee's hairstyle is Gaudi Harry in light brown (designer: Gaudi Planer). The ring is gold and emerald with bling (designer unknown). The BCA necklace is bydesigner BeefCake Wrigglesworth. Location of above images: Wolfis Inselwelt.

51. KA Designs unisex "Rity" suit in brown
 


Designer of clothing: Kira Ahn. The clothing set comprises buttoned jacket, waistcoat and trousers, plus two shirts - one with combined black tie (as above) and the other open-necked. The suit fabric could be silk or satin and is very well rendered.
The shirts are in the same fabric as the suit components. Although marketed as "unisex", the clothing goes very well on a male avatar despite the choice of the feminine fabric.

In image 5, PeeWee has removed the waistcoat and tie and unbuttoned his shirt collar. In the next one (image 6) he has removed the jacket. Finally, in images 7 and 8, PeeWee is again wearing the waistcoat and tie, but this time without the jacket.
 


The shoes PeeWee is wearing are Swank Brothers Oxford dress shoes in white, designer: Doc Wrangler. PeeWee's hairstyle is Soulphoniks Johnny D (designer not recorded). The ring is gold and emerald with bling (designer unknown). Location of images: Visit Mexico and Calas Galadhon.

52. Havana "Dare" jackets, shirts and trousers
 


Designer of clothing: Ricco Saenz. A range of colours are available in this clothing including blue, yellow, green, salmon, white, beige and light brown.
The clothes are marketed in stores focussing on gay men. The garments can be purchased as single items, or in sets comprising jacket + shirt + trousers in contrasting colours. The jackets are available in plain or speckled versions. PeeWee has six garments from the range which are all illustrated here; they are blue shirt, yellow shirt, blue trousers, salmon trousers, plain blue jacket, and speckled green jacket.

In the above image, PeeWee is wearing the blue shirt and blue trousers but no jacket. The shirts can be worn long (as above) or tucked, and have collar and cuff prims. The trousers have an integral black belt. In image 4, PeeWee has changed to the yellow shirt, again worn long, this time combined with the salmon trousers. In the next picture (image 5), PeeWee has added the speckled green jacket. The yellow shirt is now tucked because the long shirts cannot be combined with a jacket because both occupy the jacket layer. In image 6, PeeWee is wearing the blue jacket and blue trousers with no shirt. In the final one (image 7) PeeWee is wearing the yellow shirt tucked and the blue trousers.
 


The shoes PeeWee is wearing are Kalnins Earthshine colour-variable sandals set to colour 'Ming' (designer: Maris Kanto). To see all eleven colours for these sandals, see item 40, on page 2. PeeWee's hairstyle is Lewis in 'Azul' (blue), designer: Diane Storaro. The heavy silver Bootlag necklace and bracelet are by designer Vera Leven. PeeWee is also wearing a diamond and gold ring (designer unknown). Location of images: Angel Blue Sky and Aero Pines Park.

53. SB "Hugo Boss" beige suit
 


Designer of clothing: Sweeny Baxter. In images 1, 2 and 4, PeeWee is wearing the beige suit jacket, which is in two parts on the jacket and skirt layers, and the matching suit trousers. Underneath the jacket he is wearing (on the shirt layer) a white formal shirt with black bow tie (combination item). In image 5, PeeWee has taken the jacket off to show the shirt properly.

There are in pack two further jackets in addition to the jacket-alone already mentioned. The second jacket has a white open-neck shirt combined (see image 3); the third jacket has a black open-neck shirt combined (see image 6). In image 6, I have left off the lower skirt portion of the jacket producing a tucked appearance.

For wearing under the jacket-alone, we have already seen the shirt-plus-bowtie combination. There is also a waistcoat-plus-shirt-plus-bowtie combination, which can be seen under the jacket (in image 7) and without the jacket (in image 8).

There are also provided in the pack a black turtleneck sweater and black shoes and socks. I am not featuring these items here because they are so dark I cannot get any details of them to show up.
 


PeeWee's hairstyle is Bryce Designs Markey in 'Buff', designer: Bryce Tully. The black spectacles are Maschienenwerk 5122. PeeWee's pipe is Don Reginaldo Old Wood Billard, designer: Reginaldo Rabeni. Location of images: Shadow Brook.

54. SG "Dendi" tank tops, XTC "Signature" leathers, and Valiant "Triniti" jeans
 


The designer of these very attractive SG Dendi tank tops is Sasha Gopheller. The colours which PeeWee is modelling here are 'Bordo', 'Beige' and 'Khaki'. Also available at the store are blue, white, grey and black. The tank tops can be worn long (above and below left) or tucked (below right).

The STC 012 Signature red leather trousers in the above picture are by Xaviar Thunders. See also image 4 for a rear view of these trousers, and image 6 for the trousers worn with the tucked tank top in 'Khaki'.

The excellent Valiant washed-out blue low rise Triniti jeans are by Wavie Haller. The trousers have very good lower leg prims which can be seen in close-up in image 5. Two versions of the jeans are provided - one with belt, the other without. See images 7 and 8 for the jeans with belt.
 


The shoes PeeWee is wearing are Zanzo Dundee Tartan Classix red plimsols, designer: Theodore DuCasse. See image 5 for a close-up of these plimsols. PeeWee's hairstyle is Santino in brown by designer Sebass Easterwood. Location of images: London Hyde Park.

55. Valiant "Spring Military" black suit
 


The items in the clothing set are by designer Wavie Haller
apart from the shirt cuff prims which are by Ruby Sinclair and the trouser lower leg prims which are by Jamay Greene. The set comprises two jackets (open and buttoned), shirt, trousers, diamond pattern tie, and an armband constructed of knotted rope.

In images 1, 3, 4 and 5, the open jacket can be seen. It is made in two parts on the jacket and skirt layers. It has military arm stripes, and collar prim and buttoned cuff prims. The buttoned version of the jacket is on the jacket layer only and can be seen in image 6 (Feelgood Realistic smokes by FeelGood Tripp).

In images 7 and 8 the jacket has been removed revealing the Star shirt. The shirt cuff prims are in place. So far the shirt has been worn in the tucked version. In image 9 the long version of the shirt is worn and the tie has been removed.
 


The boots PeeWee is wearing are Cattivo Stomper Engineer boots (bottoms only; calf sections not worn). Designer of boots: Lissa Maertens. On his head, PeeWee is wearing a knitted woollen striped hat with scripted hair by SF Design (designer: swaffette Firefly). This one is in 'olive' - other colours are available at the store. On right-clicking the hat, a menu appears which enables the hair shade to be selected from a choice of twelve colours. The black hair has been selected in these pictures. Location of images: Ten Thousand Shadows.

56. SF Design white beachwear set (tintable)
 


This SF Design
clothing set comprises white Muscle t-shirt and white Beach Pants with turn-up prims and waist tie prim. The designer of the clothing is swaffette Firefly. The clothing is 'tintable' which means the colour can be changed. In images 5 and 6, the colours have been varied using the colour palette. For the t-shirt, there is provided a gap filler on the underpants layer to enable it to be worn with low-rise trousers.

In the final picture (image 7), I have combined the Muscle t-shirt with white KA Designs Twist trousers in white (designer: Kira Ahn).
 


On his feet PeeWee is wearing Jungle Wear brown leather sandals (designer: Lion Valentino), and white ribbed socks (designer: Kaejo DaSilva). PeeWee's hairstyle is Bryce Designs Dexter in 'Alloy', designer: Bryce Tully. The heavy silver Bootlag necklace and bracelet are by designer Vera Leven. Location of images: Provincetown.

57. Cattivo "Perfectly Pinstriped" suit in Copper
 


The designer of this fine suit is Lissa Maertens. It comprises open and closed jackets in 'copper', matching trousers with black belt, buttoned shirts in 'charcoal' and 'nearly white', thirteen flat ties (on the shirt layer), and five prim flexi ties. We have already seen this same suit on page 1 in 'sand', and on page 2 in pale blue. To see all the tie colours, look at item 25 on page 2, and view image 4 (for the thirteen flat ties) and image 5 (for the five prim ties).

In the picture above, PeeWee is wearing the open jacket with prims cuffs, and the 'charcoal' shirt (on the undershirt layer), and the 'emerald' necktie (on the shirt layer). In images 5 and 6, PeeWee is wearing the jacket buttoned, and has changed into the 'nearly white' shirt and the yellow flat tie. In the next picture (image 7) PeeWee has undone his jacket again and is now wearing the flexi tie in 'aqua'. In the final one (image 8), PeeWee has removed the jacket and untucked his shirt which is now worn long.
 


PeeWee is wearing SF Design Brogues which can be set to six colours (worn here in 'Sand'), designer: swaffette Firefly. For all six colours of this shoe see item 16, on page 1. PeeWee's hairstyle is Bryce Designs Hinder in 'Penny', designer: Bryce Tully. Location of images: Dead Drop.

58. "Tropical Joe" shirt and trousers with King For Men "Bucket" hats
 


The Tropical Joe shirt and trousers set is by designer Tarina Sewell. The clothing is very simple - the shirt pattern is very pretty. See image 5 for a rear view.

The King For Men Bucket hats are by designer Kerem Lunt. In the pack are four colours: light brown, green, brown and black. The hats seem to be made of translucent stiffened gauze with good texture, moulded into a hat shape, in two layers giving a thickness to the appearance. The light brown one is worn in images 1, 3, 4 and 5. For the other hat colours, I have swapped the Tropical Joe shirt for a different one sympathetic to the colour of the hat. In image 6, PeeWee is wearing the green hat with a Metro Men army-green deep v-neck t-shirt (designer: Elmo Emu). In image 7, with the brown hat, he has on a Redgrave Palha shirt and pullover combination (designer: Talyssa Collins). Finally, in image 8, wearing the black King For Men hat, PeeWee has on an INDI Designs black pinstriped shirt (designer: Jamie Holmer).

In image 9, you can see all four hats in a composite picture. The shirt is now a Macho golden flair shirt by Savy Sands.
 


PeeWee's shoes are Head-Toe Menswear Euro square toe shoes in doeskin (designer: Casper Dionne). Location of images: Daydream Island.

59. King For Men pink suit with red shirt and yellow tie
 


The designer of the King For Men clothing is
Kerem Lunt. The clothing was purchased from the King For Men store in three separate packs - a suit pack, a shirt pack, and a tie pack. The same suit is available in a range of different colours in the store, as are the shirts and ties. Although the shirt packs and tie packs are sold separately, they are intended to be worn with the suits. I chose a red shirt pack and a yellow tie pack to go with PeeWee's pink suit.

The suit pack contains two jackets in pink woollen cloth (one buttoned, one open), and matching trousers with black belt. See image 5 for PeeWee wearing the buttoned version of the jacket.

The shirt pack contains versions with long or short sleeves, and with buttoned or open-neck collar. Also, the shirts can be worn on the shirt or undershirt layers, so there are 2 x 2 x 2 = 8 shirts altogether in the pack.The tie pack contains three yellow ties, one tied tight for the buttoned shirt, one tied loosely for the open-neck shirt, and a third version probably for use with a shirt with a prim collar (not illustrated here). All three ties can be worn either on the shirt or jacket layers, so there are 3 x 2 = 6 ties altogether in the pack. See images 6 and 7 for PeeWee wearing the open-neck shirt with the appropriate tie, and image 8 in which the short-sleeved shirt is worn.
 


The shoes PeeWee is wearing are SF Design laced dress shoes which can be set to nine different colours (worn here in red). Designer of shoes: swaffette Firefly. For all nine colours of this shoe see item 16, on page 1. PeeWee's hairstyle is Bryce Designs Markey in 'Bark', designer: Bryce Tully. Location of images: Wando.

60. Fashion Forward shirt and trousers
 


The
designer of the Fashion Forward clothing is Jenna Etzel. The clothing set comprises khaki loose-fitting trousers with brownish belt and gold buckle, and attractive striped dress shirt open at the neck.

In images 6 and 7, I have added the SF Design Henley blue blazer with UCL rowing club emblem (designer: swaffette Firefly), which goes well with the Fashion Forward clothing. In image 8, PeeWee is wearing the jacket from the Cattivo Perfectly Pinstriped suit in 'Sand' (designer: Lissa Maertens). In image 9, he is wearing the brown jacket from the Sartoria S196 outfit (designer: traveller Bade). In image 10, he has changed into the beige jacket from the Meriken Co Gingham suit (designer: Yaszi Mornington). This latter one, I think, is an excellent match.
 


The shoes PeeWee is wearing are Vestirse PornStar Como Una High-Top trainers, worn here without the fold-over uppers. Designer of shoes: Kalamos Bravin. PeeWee's hairstyle is Benjamin in 'Marble Brown', designer: Sinnocent Mirabeau. Location of images: Embay.

61. PeeWee shape
 


The appearance of an avatar in Second life is determined by the shape and the skin. This item deals with the shape.

In the above picture, the avatar shape in the middle image of the three is one which I created myself. I call this the "PeeWee" shape, and it is what defines my avatar, making it different from all others. As a starting point, I used a shape which I obtained as a freebie called Ricardo. This is shown in left-hand image above. I worked on this shape using the appearance editor, gradually changing it until I achieved the shape I wanted for my avatar. This is great fun, and what you are achieving is something unique. It is important that the shape you start from has modify permission. Below left, and below right are the full-face and profile close-ups of my final PeeWee shape.

A shape is determined by 77 parameters each of which can set in the range 0 to 100. To see a list of all 77 parameters click here. The Second Life appearance editor allows one to alter the parameter values, one at a time, viewing the results as you go. To change the Ricardo shape into the PeeWee shape, I altered 41 of the parameters, leaving the other 36 as they were. I should just mention that the right-hand shape above, which I call Mr-fifty-per-cent, was obtained by setting all the parameters to 50, the middle of the permitted range. Image 4 is a composite showing the three full-face close-ups side by side. Image 5 shows the three profiles.

Most of the changes I made were to the face. In the face profile, I made PeeWee have a larger nose, more pronounced brow ridge, and stronger chin (see image 5). In the full-face view, I gave PeeWee a wider nose, squarer jaw, fuller lips, and closer-set eyes than were in the original Ricardo shape (see image 4). For example, for the Eye Spacing parameter, I changed the value from 53 to 23 because I found the eyes were much too far apart for my ideal. For the rest of the body, the most significant change I made was to the avatar height. The original setting was 83 which translates to a height of 6 feet 10 inches (2.08 metres). I changed this to 70 which is equivalent to 6 feet 4 inches (1.93 metres).

In the video, you can see the avatar morphing between shapes, starting with Ricardo, changing to PeeWee, then to Mr-fifty-per-cent, then back to PeeWee again.
 


The clothing items worn here are: white SF Design Muscle tank top (designer: swaffette Firefly), grey Sidewalk boxer briefs with red trim (designer: Rhyph Somme), and white ribbed socks with red stripes (designer: Aimee Weber). The hairstyle is Brad in 'Castano' (chestnut) by Diane Storaro. Location of images: Forest Feast.

62. Meriken Co "Gingham" grey suit and other items from Meriken Co.
 


The Meriken Co Gingham grey suit comprises just the open jacket and the low-rise trousers. We have already seen the beige version of the Gingham suit (see item 40 on page 2). The other items of clothing in this feature (shirts, trousers, hats and shoes) were bought as separate items from the same store. They are all Meriken Co brand and by the same brilliant designer Yaszi Mornington.
All the items I have bought from Meriken Co have turned out to be of excellent quality with very good textures.

The Gingham trousers have prim turnups which reveal blue and white striped lining on the wrong side of the suit cloth. The Meriken Co grey polka-dot shirt, worn here in the tucked version, is available in other colours at the store. It can be worn long (see image 6). The Meriken Co shoes are Woo in grey suede with green trim; they have excellent detail. The same shoe is available in tan leather (not illustrated here, but will appear in a later item). The Meriken Co navy-coloured straw hat has very good texture. The same hat in natural straw colour can be seen in images 8, 9 and 10.

Another very attractive Meriken Co shirt - the Elese in blue diamond pattern - can be seen in images 7, 8 and 9. The Elese shirt can be worn tucked or long and is available in other colours at the store. Finally, Meriken Co black-striped Moire trousers can be seen in images 8 onwards. These very attractive low-rise trousers are also provided on the underpants layer - figure-hugging for tucking into boots (not illustrated here).
 


The straw hat will not easily accomodate a prim hairstyle without the hair sticking through the hat. The hat needs to be worn either with a skin which includes scalp hair, or, as here, with a hair base rather than a bald base. The hair base used here is by Ayla Holt. Location of images: TriBorough, New York.

63. Chic Dimensions "Sophistication" suit in lime
 


There are four items in this clothing set - lime green chequer open jacket, green trousers, waistcoat + shirt + tie combination item, and hat. The designer of the jacket is Chantel Page. The designer of the hat is BigRob Bijoux. The bottom section of the waistcoat is actually part of the trousers item. In images 5 and 6 the jacket has been removed. In images 7 and 8, the upper garments have been replaced with a Juice green shirt (worn long on the jacket layer to cover the waistcoat section already mentioned) with skinny black tie. The designer of the shirt and tie is JohnnyD Posthorn.
 


The shoes PeeWee is wearing are Hoorenbeek Margin shoes (designer: Limer Fredriksson) which are texture- and colour-variable. They are worn here in green suede. The hairstyle worn in images 7 and 8 is Gaudi Harry in light brown (designer: Gaudi Planer). Location of images: Embay.

64. Roosters "Classic" pinstriped tuxedo
 


This tuxedo outfit contains a suit jacket which is black with purple pinstripes, matching trousers, white shirt, ties, shoes, socks, gloves and fedora hat. Most of the items are by Marx Alvord. The prim parts of the jacket (shoulder pads and flexi skirt) and the hat, are by Feena Andel. The gloves are by Delenhoure Ember. The shoes are not attributed.

The lower part of the trouser is on the pants layer, but the top three inches or so are part of the shirt item (on the shirt layer). See image 4 in which the jacket, lower trousers, and collar and tie prim have been removed, just leaving the shirt layer item. In the next one (image 5) PeeWee is wearing the shirt and trousers but no jacket.

The shirt collar and tie are constructed from linked prims which require adjustment for position and size using 'edit'. There are two versions of the collar-and-tie prim which can be seen side-by-side in image 6. Strangely, the version on the left has the shirt collar in pale pink matching the tie rather than the shirt.

The jacket is constructed from a base on the jacket layer plus three prim attachments. The prims are a pair of shoulder pads and a flexi skirt. Image 7 shows how the components of the jacket fit together: on the left is the base jacket; in the centre are the prims; on the right is the whole thing together. The jacket can be worn without the prims - see image 8. Finally, image 9 shows the glove detail.
 


The underpants are SEB white boxers (designer: Mick Lukas). PeeWee's hairstyle is Bryce Designs Markey in 'Tuxedo' (designer: Bryce Tully). The black spectacles are Maschienenwerk model 5122. The pipe is Don Reginaldo Classic Briar (designer: Reginaldo Rabeni). Location of images: Japan Tempura Island.

65. DE Designs "Camel Hair" coat, "Onyx Oxford" shirts, and "Rogue" cargo cords
 


The
designer of the DE Designs clothing is DoC Eldritch. PeeWee is modelling the DE Designs Camel Hair sports coat, the DE Designs Onyx Oxford shirts in five colours, and the DE Designs Rogue corduroy cargo pants.

The Camel Hair sports coat is on the jacket layer and has good texture. It appears below right and in image 5.

The Rogue corduroy cargo pants came in a pack along with a DE Designs Rogue black t-shirt with tan flaming head motif. In image 6, the jacket has been removed revealing the t-shirt more clearly. The t-shirt is tucked on the shirt layer. The cargo pants have a black belt with silver buckle which can bee seen clearly in image 6, and, for a rear view, in image 7.

The Onyx Oxford shirts come in five colours which can be bought separately or as a combined pack. The colours are burgundy, charcoal, cream, slate and white, which are all very attractive. The shirts are provided on the jacket layer to be worn long covering the top part of the trousers. They cannot be worn tucked or under a jacket. The shirts are provided in versions with long or short sleeves. See image 8 for the slate shirt worn with long sleeves. The short-sleeved versions can be worn as they are - see image 9 for the short-sleeved burgundy shirt worn over the black t-shirt. However, there are rolled sleeve prims provided for use with the short-sleeved shirts as worn above with the cream shirt. Image 10 is a composite picture showing all five colours of shirt in the short-sleeved versions with rolled sleeve prims.
 


On PeeWee's feet are Cattivo Stomper Engineer boots in tan (designer: Lissa Maertens). The upper calf sections of these boots are not worn here. PeeWee's hairstyle is Johnny D (designer not recorded). Location of images: Lost World by lolmac Shan.

66. Concept Clothing "Class" suit in bordeau
 


The Concept Clothing outfit comprises bordeau jacket and matching trousers, grey waistcoat, white shirt, grey tie, and bordeau hat with black band. The designer of the clothing is MrFashion Fetiocci.

There are, in the pack, just three upper-body items - all on the jacket layer. In the image above, the jacket, waistcoat and buttoned collar-attached shirt are all one composite item. The other two jacket layer items are jacket alone, and waistcoat plus collarless shirt as one composite item. In images 4, 5 and 6, PeeWee is wearing the waistcoat + shirt composite item, along with rolled sleeve prims and collar + tie linked prim assemble. Images 7, 8 and 9 illustrate the jacket alone item. There is nothing in the pack to combine with the jacket alone, so I have combined it with other garments from PeeWee's wardrobe worn on the shirt and/or undershirt layers. In images 7 and 8, he is wearing a Juice open-neck green shirt with black skinny tie (designer: JohnnyD Posthorn). In image 9, he is wearing a Cattivo 'nearly white' shirt and 'obsidian' tie (designer: Lissa Maertens).

The trousers have lower leg prim attachments. The hat is not resizeable, but fortunately is quite big and I was able to fit it over the Bryce Designs hairstyle by careful positioning.
 


The shoes PeeWee is wearing are Hoorenbeek Margin shoes (designer: Limer Fredriksson) which are texture- and colour-variable. They are worn here as 'rustic leather' in 'berry'. PeeWee's hairstyle is Bryce Designs Hinder in 'Spice', designer: Bryce Tully. The black spectacles are Maschienenwerk model 5122. PeeWee's pipe is Don Reginaldo Old Wood Billard, designer: Reginaldo Rabeni. Location of images: Club Visiwa Estate.

67. Crias Rowlands orange overalls and blue lightweight trousers from Dirty Rat store
 


The
orange overalls and blue lightweight trousers featured in this item are from the Dirty Rat main store. The designer of the clothing is Crias Rowlands. The overalls are on the jacket and pants layers and have a zip down the front. There is also provided in the pack a shaper item on the shirt layer which makes the sleeves fill out and also the body above the waist as though everyday clothing were worn underneath the overalls. In image 6, I have replaced the upper part with an SG Dendi beige tank top (designer: Sasha Gopheller).

In image 7, PeeWee is wearing another item from the Dirty Rat store - namely blue lightweight trousers. To go with this, he is wearing another SG Dendi tank top - this time in khaki. These tank tops have already been featured above in item 54.
 


On PeeWee's feet are Cattivo Stomper Engineer boots in tan (designer: Lissa Maertens). The upper calf sections of these boots are not worn here. PeeWee's hairstyle is Benjamin in 'marble brown', designer: Sinnocent Mirabeau. Location of images: Dirty Rat. Location of video: WiccanWays.

68. Skins for avatar
 


The
appearance of an avatar in Second life is determined by the shape and the skin. The shape has already been dealt with in item 61 above, but here, I am bringing together the various skins which have been used in the items so far - there are eleven of them. As you will see, even though all the skins are being applied to the same shape (the PeeWee shape as described in item 61), the resulting appearances can be very different. The creation of a skin is more involved than the creation of a shape and all the ones shown here were bought from stores in SL or obtained as freebies.

The skin shown in the first three images is the MV Designs dark beard one (designer: GomesKos Aeon). Most skins have a bald pate, but this one has scalp hair which can be seen in image 3. In images 1 and 2, PeeWee is wearing an SF Design olive woollen hat (designer: swaffette Firefly) with scripted colour-variable hair, set to black in this case. The other clothing worn by PeeWee is an SG Dendi tank top in khaki (designer: Sasha Gopheller), AD Sport boxer underpants (designer: arzach Mills), and tintable ribbed socks (designer: Kaejo DaSilva). The shoes are Vestirse PornStar Como Una High-Top trainers (designer: Kalamos Bravin).
 


The other ten skins can be seen in images 4 to 13. Image 14 is a composite picture showing all eleven skins together. Designers names are in bold.

Middle row: Freckles, Johnny, MB David, MB Paul.
Bottom row: Michael, MM TanSkin cleanshaven, MM TanSkin bearded.


In all the above images, the shape that the skin is being applied to is the PeeWee shape. However, when a skin is offered, there is frequently also available an original shape which goes with the skin; both skin and shape have been created by the same designer with the recommendation that they are used together. In image 15, the five skins for which I still have the original shapes can be seen. In the top row, each skin is applied to its original shape. In the bottom row, the same five skins are applied to the PeeWee shape for comparison.

69. ZEN Wall Street "Professor" clothing set
 


The designer of the clothing is Zen Deledda. The clothing comprises brown corduroy trousers, two buttoned jackets (one tan, the other chocolate) with leather elbow patches, and three pullovers (in cream, green, and chocolate). The first few images show the tan jacket with the cream pullover.

The pullovers come in two versions - one combined with a buttoned shirt (as shown above), the other alone - so there are six pullovers altogether (3 x 2 = 6). The pullovers are obviously only intended to be worn under the jacket because the pullover sleeves have no texture and their only purpose is to act as shaper for the jacket sleeves giving them body. In image 7 can be seen the tan jacket with the chocolate pullover. For the chocolate jacket with the green pullover see image 8, which shows that the shirt combined with the green pullover is an olive colour.

In the rest of the images I have combined the ZEN-WS clothing with other items borrowed from elsewhere. In image 9, PeeWee is wearing a shirt/tie combination from the Sartoria S21 Portofino pink suit (designer: traveller Bade) underneath the tan jacket.. Because this shirt/tie combination is worn on the shirt layer it is not possible to wear the sleeve shaper which also occupies the same layer, so the jacket sleeves appear tight. In the next one (image 10), PeeWee is wearing a shirt with Ascot tie from the Cattivo Englishman suit (designer: Lissa Maertens), and as this one is worn on the undershirt layer, I have been able to use with it a sleeve shaper borrowed from a Made Men suit (designer: Rockwell Maltz). Next, in image 11 the jacket has been removed which reveals the detail on the upper part of the ZEN-WS trousers. The shirt here is another one from the Englishman suit, this time collarless and with the Ascot worn in a different way. Finally, in image 12 the shirt worn is in 'coffebean' from the Warms Velvets range (designer: Dan Senyurt).
 


On PeeWee's feet are INDI Designs O'Reilly Low Shoes in dark brown (designer: Jamie Holmer), and brown ribbed socks (designer: Kaejo DaSilva). PeeWee's hairstyle is Sirena Corporate in 'Sandy' (designer: Natalia Zelmanov). Location of images: Dreamworld Silver.

70. T.S.D. "Blue Man" denim suit
 


The designer of the clothing is Tarina Sewell. The set comprises open jacket, trousers with black belt, blue patterned waistcoat, blue shirt combined with blue patterned tie and tie-pin, hat, tortoiseshell-rimmed spectacles, and pocket watch (not shown here). The textures are very good - especially the hat which can be seen in close-up in image 8. I found it quite easy to accommodate a short hairstyle under the hat. The shirt comes in long- and short-sleeved versions. There are rolled sleeve prims for the short-sleeved version which can be seen in images 5, 6 and 7. The spectacles are very nice, having chrome sides, tortoiseshell lens rims, and turquoise glass, which is transparent-enough to allow the eyes to be seen clearly.
 


The shoes are Meriken Co Woo grey suede shoes (designer: Yaszi Mornington). PeeWee's hairstyle is Bryce Designs Hinder in 'Terra' (designer: Bryce Tully). Location of images: Loch Haven.

71. Cattivo "Academic" clothing set
 


The Cattivo clothing and shoes are by Lissa Maertens. I bought this clothing set in the ZHAO/Cattivo store at a discounted price and it is very good value for money. There is a lot in the pack. There are four blazers, two jeans, shirts in three colours plus dress shirt in white, four flexi ties, fedora hat, two pairs of shoes, and black socks. The colours Lissa has chosen are very attractive and allow for a lot of different colour combinations to be tried.

The four blazer colours are 'obsidian', 'gun steel', 'ochre' and 'olive'. The three coloured shirts are collarless and come in buttoned and open-neck versions; the colours are 'steel', 'ivory' and 'rust'. The white dress shirt has two versions - one with collar attached and buttoned, the other collarless and unbuttoned for which there is a separate prim collar. The flexi ties are in 'avocado', 'red', 'salmon' and 'terra cotta'. The two jeans, which have lower leg prim sections, are 'black' and 'blue'. The two pairs of shoes are Cattivo Captoe Oxford in 'obsidian' and 'tawny suede'. In the opening images (above and below) the clothes modelled are: 'obsidian' blazer, 'steel' buttoned shirt, 'black' jeans, and 'obsidian' shoes. The grey felt fedora (trilby) hat is very good but will not accomodate a prim hairstyle, so I have used a skin with integral scalp hair (the MM TanSkin bearded - see item 68 above for information about skins).

In image 4, PeeWee is wearing the 'Ochre' blazer, and the open-neck shirt in 'rust'. The hat has been removed, and PeeWee's hairstyle is now Sirena Corporate in 'Chestnut' (designer: Natalia Zelmanov). In image 5, the blazer is in 'gun steel', the shirt is the buttoned one in 'ivory', and the jeans are now the 'blue' ones. The shoes have been changed to the 'tawny suede' ones which can be seen in image 6. The final blazer colour which is 'olive' can be seen in image 7 where the shirt worn is the white dress collar-attached buttoned shirt. Also worn is the flexi tie in 'terra cotta'.

In the final picture (image 8), PeeWee is wearing the open-neck white dress shirt with prim collar.

72. DE Designs "Onyx Windsor" shirts and corduroy trousers
 


The
designer of the DE Designs clothing is DoC Eldritch. The items featured are the Onyx Windsor shirts in five colours, bought as a pack, and the corduroy trousers in three colours, again bought as a pack in the same DE Designs store.

In the first pictures, PeeWee is wearing the long version of the shirt in 'mocha' with short sleeves and rolled sleeve prims. There are tucked as well as long versions of the shirts, and also versions with long sleeves. The shirts are provided on all layers for maximum flexibility in wear. The five colours for the shirt are 'mocha', 'white', 'black', 'blue' and 'red'. All five colours can be seen in a composite picture in image 10. The shirts have very good texture, and each shirt is made in an individual patterned fabric. In image 9, featuring the red shirt, PeeWee has donned his DE Designs Camel Hair sports coat which was featured in item 65 above.

The corduroy trouser colours are 'brown' (images 1, 2, 4, 7 and 10), 'grey' (images 5 and 6) and 'tan' (images 8 and 9). The grey trousers (actually nearly white) go very well with the white Windsor shirt, as can be seen in images 5 and 6, which also show the detail of the black trousers belt.
 


The skin featured in this item is a new one for PeeWee - the MB Pirulin (designer: Mirca Bekkers). The hairstyle is Bryce Designs Richard in 'Mist' (designer: Bryce Tully). PeeWee's shoes are Meriken Co Woo in tan leather (designer: Yaszi Mornington). The tortoiseshell spectacles are Maschienenwerk Jagu (designer unknown). The pipe is Don Reginaldo Old Wood Billard, designer: Reginaldo Rabeni. Feelgood Realistic smokes (image 7) are by FeelGood Tripp. Location of images: Art + Desire - Nitsuko's Island.
