Trials of Eyeliner

Comes across all shy and coy, just another nancy boy

Author’s Note: Post to be read in the tacky tone of a romance novel. No Avatars Were Harmed in the creation of this semi-fictional representation of How I Made My Blog Photo. Yes, it is safe for work.  

The sun was dipping into the horizon as I sat at my computer; clicking away in Second Life absently shopping while my mind was drifting elsewhere. I was thinking about him again. The way his hair framed his face and how that square jaw was just so perfectly covered in his permanent five o’clock shadow. I was about to open another IM to him with something flirtatious that would leave us both tense when the little blue box of joy showed up on the other side of the screen.

The Exile blogger pack from Kavar for Hair Fair.

I had seen the delicious teaser images the day before of “Blown Away”- a long style made for women, blowing in the wind- and had admired the way the new style perfectly framed Kavar’s bronzed male model; the carefree, almost whimsical drift of the long, luscious strands down across his back. I wanted to run my hands through it immediately (and snatch it right off his head and make it my own) and once again had my faith renewed that there would be more long hair for men soon.

I couldn’t help it. I had to IM him. I had to tell him. I had to tell him right away. No sooner than I went to click on his name, it was like the sun and stars aligned and he flew into view on my sim; his bronzed skin gleaming in the sunbeams that pierced the trees. “Look! Look, what I got,” I whispered as I shook the flowing, beautifully highlighted hair around my shoulders to let it catch in the wind. Not a single strand pierced my broad shoulders as I showed off for him. It may have been made for a woman, but it framed my face in a velvet shadow that I knew he couldn’t resist.

“I want to shoot a romance novel cover for this,” I told him. “I need you,” I began, leaving a pregnant pause as I took a breath before finishing thought, knowing my voice would waver in anticipation if I spoke too soon and betray my cool exterior.  “…to help me with the cover,” I finished, hoping he would agree to pose with me.

My heart skipped beats as he pulled on those skin tight, low-waisted leathers. My eyes feasted on his arms as they reached for the feather boa to drape over his shoulders; the long, soft feathers brushing his chest and caressing his hip in ways I’ve dreamed of doing with my mouth since we met. It was all I could do to stay on my feet when he kneeled in front of me and lifted his hand to hang off my belt buckle. “Is here ok?” he asked, as I slid a hand into his hair at the back of his neck.

Is here ok? Jesus. Here, now, yes, please. Christ, I had to focus on taking a photo with his perfect man at my feet. How was I ever going to do this?


Now while I shake off the yoke of writing bad, fictional erotica, lets get to brass tacks. This hair is awesome! As I mentioned rather luridly above, it is intended for the ladies but was made specifically to fit the larger shoulders and back of men so we can wear it as well. Blown Away is available in the 14 exile standard color packs with 10 shades each. Each of those 10 shades has the 8 highlight/tip additions. If you can’t find a color you like in an exile pack, you’re drunk- go home.

Blown Away is one of five brand new styles from Exile that will be available at Hair Fair; a short style for men, three for the ladies, and of course Blown Away that works great for both. If there’s one store you simply must hit at the Fair, Exile is the one.

Get the wind in your hair or up your skirt and check them out.

I’ll be in my bunk,

    And now I shall name you Fabio… your voice shall take deep overly dramatic italian tones…

    1. Yea, the Fabio jokes were running rampant while we were doing this. Not to mention the hilarity of three gay guys researching romance novel covers.
