Trials of Eyeliner

Comes across all shy and coy, just another nancy boy

Just gotta Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaance!

Second Pride starts tomorrow, Friday, with a kick-off white party at 6pm SLT. We queens do love our seasonal white parties, usually in Palm Springs, and look forward to it year round. The chance to wear as little as possible, get hot and sweaty with a few thousand of your closest brand new friends, oh, yea, and dance a little bit.

Second Pride runs from June 20th to June 29th

Putting together an outfit that’s white in SL is just this side of impossible on a good day for any avatar. Couple in ‘male’ and ‘sexy hot’ and you’ve effectively stacked the deck against yourself in such a way that you’d best get to working on it a few days in advance. White is the bane of every creator’s bag of tricks. Not enough shading and it looks like you’re wearing something flat. Too much shading and your white clothing is now grey.

Then of course there’s the fact that there is no one color of white. Just like black, only I think worse. I’ve picked up so many supposedly white items that turn out to be off-white, eggshell, christmas white, or any other shade that has absolutely no resemblance to “White”. The worst was a recent pair of boots that I just adored and tried to use with my white outfit.. the HUD even looked white-white. The white which would match the rest of what I was working on. But no, it had that winter-white off tint to it.

Oh the trials and tribulations of a queen in need of an outfit. Couple that with the fact there were FOUR of us all trying to put together white outfits for this party and not wear the same thing (Which, you know, is a faux-pas worse than not picking up the condom wrappers before mom visits) and its just a recipie for disaster.

Zaaf was first to complete the Trials of White and put together this fabulous cowboy ensemble from Z.E.D. ZED does some amazing clothes for men (and women, alike) Mostly template- like just about everything for men- his textures are outstanding. His leather and denim both have a really good feel to them.

And with a ripe backside like that, who can say no to a second photo?

Draconias came in second with his oh so sleek sixties white look. Coupled with a different pair of boots, this outfit would fit in any genre he chose and in any color but with these Beatle Boots, its like an instant drop into 60’s London. Completely fabulous. The pants are made for women and the medium fit his form. Highly suggest any men interested in them give them a shot as well.

After almost two weeks of arguing with the marketplace and not being able to find a damned thing in white, I bit the bullet and wentinto my inventory. Everything except the boots… I already had. It was one of those moments when you realize you just have too much shit for your own good and you’re never going to get through it all. But it also served to point out that you should absolutely buy that outfit you think you may only wear once.. because I’ll bet you dollars to donuts, you’ll wear it again.

Oh the dramuz of putting together an outfit is enough to just make you cry

Orlando rounded out the pack in pure Orlando fashion with thigh high boots and a smile. Well, ok, and a few other bits too but its the thigh-highs that make the outfit for sure.

Nothing says hot like a pair of thigh highs on a man

All in all, a pretty damned fine bunch of white outfits if I do say so myself.

At the end of the day, don’t forget to head over to Second Pride. Starting June 20th and running through June 29th. Shopping, almost around the clock events from dancing to Gor, Roman and Greco Themed Tournements. Gay, Straight, Bisexual, Transgender, Curious and supporters all welcome.
