Male presenting chest vs Male chest – Furry Fun

Slink Physique Homme Augment vs Slink Physique Male//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

So when I was younger so much younger than today, I was a virtual Disney Princess. Well it seemed like it, and I have mentioned that in the past. You see my Bestest Male friend was a Furry, a Kirin one day, a Dragon baby the next, it just depended on his mood and his colour palette. It also depended on how much he had invested in the latest look. With him came along some other Furries and then the Furry babies followed – that is the Disney Princess part – nothing will make you feel more like one than having a trail of baby furries following you all over an island. Furries were not welcomed all over SL back then, no idea what that was ever about, and it is just downright ridiculous because if it had not been for the Furries and the Vamps, SL may not have gotten off the ground as it did, because they were definitely the majority when I joined in 06. So anyway, I stayed on my work island all the time back then, or did not tend to stray far from it, and because I was always there, and because my Bosses at the time were pretty awesome, the Fur babies and the Furry teens and a few Furry adults would hang out as long as I was around, because no one was going to mess with them on my watch, I had the banning of the meany powers. If we still had access to my original posts you would actually see some done with my furry friends joining me, but that stuff is long gone. I am rambling I know, but anyway, my point is this, back then and I am sure probably is still the case, to get truly little as a boy Furry you had to use a FEMALE shape, it was the only way to get really small, we did not have mesh, or even sculpted bodies, they just used the SL default and because of that often looked pigeon chested. So when I saw the Slink Physique Homme Augment, meaning you could female shape, female body but male chest yourself, they were one of the first things I thought of.

I went on an exploration of my inventory but came up surprisingly empty handed, so I went to Marketplace, and I had all but given up hope when I came across the Happy Paw store, now I was lucky enough to find the items amongst a search and did not actually peruse the rest of the stores goods, but you really should because they have some of the coolest looking parts ever, not only do they come with exceptional options but to my utter delight in the items that I got the body skin options came in system layers so I was bakes on mesh capable for my Redux items by Slink. This was perfect, and originally I had just planned on showing the body and the chest augment but then got super excited about the Doggo head and well you see the result. Liked it all so much alted up for the comparison and then sent a set to a friend. Now what you are seeing here is in the black version you have the Slink Physique Male body, and a Male shape with the settings as small as I could make it without looking weird. Then on the right you have the Slink Physique Original Female body, Female shape and the Homme chest Augment.  Sideline the skins come in PG and Mature versions and the PG means no nipples, so that made me personally feel a bit more comfortable as I am essentially naked right now, and that is so not my normal, but I guess I have fur on. So with the female body on and the use of the smooth panties toggle, I look as pg as can be. and as small again without going unrealistic as possible. The sliders are identical in all the body, torso and legs tabs, there is no breasts option for men only pecs, but they are the same as the breast size on the right. The Male version ends up at 4.83ft tall per the SL appearance info, and the female with male presenting augment comes in at 4.55ft with a smoother look overall.

It was fun setting up this comparison and the items from Happy Paw are truly amazing, so have a look if you are or have ever wanted to try your Furry look. I am not sure why there are no demos, but the heads – sold separately – have so many options, opening and closing of eyes, mouth movement when typing or talking, partially open mouths expressions and so on, it is really a work of art, and there are ears with the body that differ than the ones with the head, the ears I have on came with the body, as did the tail which comes in bento or animesh, so many things, and the prices are incredibly low, you also get items to create your own additional mods. I hope you like the information and let your friends know the augment is available at the Skin Fair 2020 that is just about to open its doors to the public.

Male presenting chest you say!

 

In Second Life there are a lot of things that people do, there are parts of Second Life that I have never seen, and often wish that I had more hours in the day. I do not actually mean locations, even though there are so many of them I wish to frequent, but more to do with the communities that have evolved over the years into some of the biggest opportunities for growth than most of us know. One such community is the dancing community, there are so many groups of people that put on live performances in Second Life, that there is even a full blown Calendar of events that I saw once thanks to Crap Mariner and it blew my mind. How is this something going on potentially right now, that I was not aware of before. I mean I knew that people made poses, and I know there are outfits, and clubs exist for dancing, but I am talking about groups of people rehearsing and spending potentially months preparing for a show that will then have a run until the next show is started on. It is really amazing.

I will go more into things like that another time, but when I saw the NEW Slink Physique Homme Chest Augment that is releasing at Skin Fair 2020 that was ONE of the first things that came to mind, the idea that with the addition of this Augment to the FEMALE bodies, you could essentially turn your female person into a male person, without the extra package. There are so many ideas that I myself have come up with for this add on that I can only imagine how many more there are, and how far people will be able to take it. The great thing is that there are also two variations included, one is Male skin such as worn in my picture, and the other is Female with a very dehanced skin that is – I played around with things that I had and they need to be skins that have no shading underneath the bust. While some will wonder what this really does that makes such a big difference, well for starters SHOES! This now means that men can get in on the footwear that is often only available to women, and not only that but get onto the idea of feet having more than one position. In my pictures I am using the Slink Physique Original Bundle body, which comes with the deluxe feet, which means I can use the Pointe feet, and then added the Margot slippers that work on all the feet heights, so in the second picture one foot that extends is in pointe and the one under supporting is in kitten, just that left and right and ability to do something to make the male form look more realistic is wonderful. I had so much fun gearing up the male look that I then went with the female option.

Dancers are often very small breasted, and the Petites Augment that has been around for about 2 years now by Slink looks fantastic not just in everyday wear, but is so well suited for this dancer vibe, or just if you like a smaller chest, again you just wear it with your Original or Hourglass bodies by Slink. The sliders of your shape work on the augment, and I have it pretty high up, so you will be able to go very small if that is your preference. I am looking forward to sharing some other looks with these Augments in future, and the head I am showing partially is also at Skin Fair in the Slink booth as it is the New head Miranda, all Redux (bakes on mesh) and she has adorable dimples and a very strong nose that I really like. Speaking of heads, just a little trick for those that are now aware, and really just to show how incredibly talented Second Life Skin creators are, the MALE uv and the FEMALE uv of the SL heads are the same…I know right, so that means that you can use a male skin on a female head and vice versa. I am wearing one of the other female heads that are by Slink and it came out great with the help of an older Redgrave skin I was hiding in my inventory.

Skin Fair opens on the 13th of March and is a two region event, where you can find mesh body parts, skins, shapes, makeup options and more, so mark your calendar.

So anyone that has ever paid much attention to my blog knows that I tend to Mod things. If a runner for a hallway is mod it might become a runner on a dining table, or if a pot plant for a desk is mod, it may end up being an over-sized planter. I can’t help it, if I can I will edit it. I also do things to accessories if I can, and so yesterday I mentioned the Zodiac set by Yummy at Uber, and I mentioned the word and symbol separate rings that everyone had to have, so I was standing around and I was thinking and then I was rezzing and then I was stretching and then I was attaching to my nose and the next thing I knew I had a TIARA/HairClip with Pisces that not only ROCKS MY WORLD but fit the hairstyle I was next in line to put on from my Exxess shopping spree the other day. Now originally the band of the ring was still visible and it did look awesome with this hair, and didn’t poke out in places, but even more exciting and huge kudos to Polyester for making separate faces for the rings, I was able to make the ring band transparent, so this is going to fit most hair I have.

I am so excited by this, because honestly every so often I go on this ‘I need a Tiara, I am a Princess” rampage – do Princesses rampage? should they rampage? – anyway over the years it has been a thing, and some very disappointing outcomes. But this, while it is not meant to be this big, and not meant to be perched on my head is making me super duper happy, and that is what matters right. So whether you are an awesome Pisces Princess or an Aries Amazon, or a Legendary Leo, you should get your mod on and rock your sign, and if you are a little more subtle than I am, well you still have the option to just wear it on your finger as intended.

Still enjoying my run with the Slink Physique Original and what better place for a Pisces Princess to spend the day than the beach and this ensemble works for that so well, these are older pieces by Tee*fy the shorts are just adorable and the tank is perfect. I then grabbed my Slink Thongs, not flip flops, THONGS that go on your feet, and I am ready for whatever the ocean brings. I did add some more of the gorgeous Ice set makeup from AlaskaMetro and removed all the additional mermaid stuff that I was going to pile on but decided to be more natural and less fork to the hair.

I may have just declared an Embargo on my friend Kavar while writing this post, this Tiara has Super Powers or Bossy Powers, one or the BOTH! I love being a Pisces Princess >)))*>

One of the things I am enjoying about wearing the Slink Physique Original body of late, is that it re-opens the Standard Sizing clothing that I already own, which is the case with this cropped mohair sweater by League. If you had a standard sizing shape, you got to wear Standard Sizing and with bakes on mesh now you get to use the same alphas that are included with standard sizing mesh, so it is a win win. I love this sweater and while it was not the sweater that started the look, it rounded it out perfectly.

What did start the look was these shorts by Vinyl. Not only is the shape of them just perfect, but the colour option that is ‘cream’ on the HUD is this kind of soft antique rose looking colour (you also get striped versions and the option to texture the trim with the fatpack hud options)  and then that just lead me down the garden path to a recent purchase of some floral boots by Coco. With the socks included and these amazing highwaisted fishnet tights by Miwas I am living my best shorty life.

The necklace I picked up recently at Kunglers had all the corresponding colours needed and then on top of that I grabbed some make up options in bom layers from Just Magnetized (at Hentai Fair which has a very adult theme so be aware) Layering those with the ice pack (giggles at ice pack) make up I picked up yesterday at Uber I was loving the combination.

I also grabbed the ring set by Yummy that is at Uber and it not only has all the fingers on and off options (celestial themes are not usually my cup of cocoa) but it also includes a word and symbol ring for star sign, so even if you do not want the rings on all fingers, you really need the individual ones, because they are just awesome. Some editing to put them in place (not rigged/bento as they do not need to be) is needed but it was easy to do.

So I actually had plans today and then I saw a notice that Stories&Co. had a new release at WFC, seriously this brand has owned me the past week, what with them adding Slink Physique Original back to their sizing, then they had a flash two day Sale that caused me to buy all the things I did not buy the other day when I did some shopping, then they have a new release. So off I went grabbed it and left, really will have to poke my head on over there at a later date. A high-waisted latex mini was a need, it was, do not tell me otherwise. The bralette not as much of a need per se as I am still trying to work out the way for me to wear that, because well you know, there is no way they are going on display but I did grab it and the pasties that are sold separately are included in that, and the fatpacks are reduced during the event, so again as I said OWNED! I did try and work out my wearing the bra part, but in the end I decided that mixing some bakes on mesh options were perfect, and this jacket by Miwas who I love and adore and cherish (side talk, so ages ago they had this skirt and it did not include my size and I IMd and I asked if it was ever going to, and the owner said they were going to, and I got busy and missed that it was updated and yesterday ended up there decided to look and it was and WOOOHOOO so grabbed that and other great things to grow out my collection ) that I have had for a while now, is just the perfect companion piece, as you get all of the options for changing parts, but also the sizes included are not body specific but more sized, so this fit perfectly over my Slink Physique Original items, so double yay.

I have been buying up all the Exxess hair lately, I am just feeling those looks of late, and they are delicious styles, this one is cafe and it was just perfect. I also did run over to Fameshed on my way back from WCF because I had seen that Breathe had these gorgeous new wrap boots out, and also Physique Original inclusive sizing, so snapped them up and the foot covering portion does change colour also via hud and I was rocking that out earlier in a white and black combo but was all about the blue after all.

If you don’t cruise comments, you will miss this, so I am going to put it here, that Prisqua Newall did a response type post based on our podcast on the daily/weekend type sales events, so go and have a read of that, and have a listen here to our podcast if you haven’t.

Podcast - Sasy Scarborough and Whimsy Winx discuss Demos in Second Life

Another chat with Whimsy Winx of Virtually Dressed, this time about Demos. We go into some strange territory and also go off on a segue about Fashion Shows and Collections of the past. While full collections are not such a current release concept, the latest releases by Blueberry are definitely bordering, with complete works top to bottom of pieces that interact with each other. I mixed some older and new together and stacked sheer system layers for my own personal comfort zone – status achieved yay Bakes on Mesh. The pieces have many options, the stockings and boots fit each other, and the boots come in three options of height, ankle, over knee and thigh high. The stockings have sheer and opaque options with flat and high, and the jacket is bedazzled with some pearls that are an option to have on or off, I love options.

Enjoy the podcast and if you have opinions on Demos in Second Life, please share in the comments below.

So when a skin maker you really enjoy releases Bakes on Mesh/Bom layers for a skin for another head than the one you wear, you pull out your tool kit, and you make it work. Such is the case as the latest release of Maia skin by Pink Fuel that was created for Genus, but I am rocking out on LeLutka. Pink Fuel has also updated all the body layers, so all those wonderful options available as Pink Fuel wearers are now available on layers, so no need to script up and HUD fiddle, you can just wear and get on going down the road. This is the joy of bakes on mesh, being able to look at all the options out there, and to see with a bit of trickery if you can get the items to work how you want, with what you want, if you are lucky enough.

This is also true with this stunner dress by Stories&Co. They sent out a notice saying that they were resuming the inclusion of Slink Physique Original to their products, and so this meant I could carry on my rocking out the Original options, but at the same time I have this sexy as dress that fits me two times. I also ran over to Frou Frou for a set of Lingerie that they had there also, so I am a very cool cucumber right now. The other love with Bakes on Mesh is that I could wear this system layer tee under it, alpha out my mid section with a corset alpha I had anyway and I am in love with it. I grabbed the fatpack and the options included colours wise in latex lusciousness are so fab.

Feeling like a hair binge, I hit up Exxess and was feeling the blonde, even though I kept the dark brows, and seeing as I change hair colours all the time, no one is believing I am a natural blonde, which actually makes me lean towards wearing darker brows sometimes on purpose, to give that dye job authenticity. The hair is stunning and has a lot of colours to choose from for the hair wrap, it is mod also so that means tinting is also possible.
