Cut Off Jeans
Tonight’s contest was cut off jeans. I’m never at my best in these contests geared for women’s clothing, but I gave it a shot.
There’s not really a good thing to wear with cut offs. I tried several things before settling on the “normal male Second Life avatar” look. Shirtless. The cutoffs came from a value pack out of SLX and I’m not sure if I’d looked longer it would have mattered. As these things go, they are actually pretty well made and didn’t leave my crotch exposed the way some short shorts can. The sandals are my favorite BoHo from Shiny Things and they worked pretty well with the casual beachy look I was going for.
The interesting thing was the shape/skin combo. This is the same Maverick ‘Disorder’ shape and Belleza Mathieu 6 skin that I’ve entered into the Maverick Best Look competion. It works pretty well and I learned yesterday afternoon that I’ll be a finalist in Saturday’s competition for nearly 100,000L in cash and prizes.
Given the field and the poor overworked (and male) judge, I got what I expected.
What would I do differently?
Maybe a shirt. I have a couple of SHIKI’s Aloha shirts – one in red and another in pink. The male judge may have been more kindly disposed if not faced with the hairy chest.
