Nissa Nightfire in the Second Life World

Nissa Introduces Her Boyish Side~


If you follow the fashion feeds at all, you will have noticed a growing trend of traditionally-female bloggers creating male avatars (either on their main account, or on an alt account) to blog male fashion. This, of course, is not a completely new phenomenon, but does seem to be trending upwards. I’ve been delighted to see this coming from many skilled fashion bloggers/photographers, and I am hopeful that it will have a positive effect on male fashion all over the grid. I’ve also been inspired to blog with a male avatar — and have found it to be interesting, very challenging, and always a work-in-progress πŸ™‚ With this post, I’m pleased to introduce you to my male counterpart. He’s not an alt, but shares my main account. So, yes — you may see Nissa Nightfire walking around as a boy, most likely shopping πŸ™‚

Developing a boy avatar has actually been on my list for some time. What finally pushed me over the edge was this terrific skin from Zanzo. I simply fell in love with this rosy-cheeked, freckled face. Zanzo offers this skin in non-freckled versions as well, and both with a couple of versions of eyeliner.

My inventory of male fashion is a little sparse at the moment — but this outfit is always a classic and easy-to-wear look. For the guy who wants to spend more of his time exploring, playing, and doing, you can’t go wrong with jeans and a tee. Add a little artistic flair with this great messenger bag from Gritty Kitty, and you’re ready for anything.

Please don’t hesitate to send me your tips on great unisex or men’s fashion — I have a whole wardrobe to build, as Nissa is a bit of a girly-girl πŸ˜‰

  2. Well done, Nissa! It always makes me sad how many comical/stereotypical male avatars there are in SL. Barrel chested, disproportionate, grossly overmuscled impersonifications of the Incredible Hulk, often bald or with long hair.

    You managed to make a very attractive and cute college boy, and I look forward to see what fashion adventures he will experience.
