I’ve found the hair from heaven, my sartorial darlings. Take a gander at this close-up:
The feathering at the base is absolutely exquisite, and I make no apologies for gushing over it. The hair is ‘Like Lust’ by Stealthic for Men Only Monthly, and it’s so fucking gorgeous that I dropped L$1000 on the fatpack, as well as L$150 on the hairbase set. This hairstyle is totally worth that expense.
I’m only showing the version without sides here, since I preferred to show off the equally-gorgeous hairbase. This comes with both appliers and tattoo layers, and it’s one of the finest, most detailed, and realistic hairbases I’ve seen in SL. I haven’t checked out the tattoo layers, but the applier for Catwa at least is a white one that’s tintable to match any colour. I suggest using a colour picker app such as Get Color! so you can get an exact match for the hair shade you’re wearing. (Tip from me: pick the colour from the roots, that way it’ll be more realistic. Sometimes I see avatars wearing light blond hair with dark roots and they’ve put on a light blond hairbase as well. How did they manage to bleach the hair on their scalp without also bleaching the roots?!)
With regard to the hair itself, not only does it come with and without sides, but you have four different styling options in total, both top and full (with the sides) and also with the hair direction going left or right, which is a really nice touch. The style is also unrigged and easy to resize.
Naturally, Skell gravitated to the black and white shades, but out of curiosity also tried the blonds, and oh man…
Yeah. Full-on Nordic, especially after also picking up Stray Dog’s stunning ‘Luca’ applier for the Catwa head at Men Only Monthly. I’m using the browless version here, because – as I’ve mentioned before on this blog – Skell is picky about his brows. He’s always been well-groomed, and likes much finer brows, hence the Avi-Glam applier ones he’s wearing here.
Note: Stray Dog doesn’t make body appliers (yet; one is in the works, apparently) but their appliers match to L’Etre’s skintones, so head there for your body stuff if you pick up this head applier.
Finally, the shirt is by Ascend and also at Men Only Monthly. This fits like a dream, and I especially like the touch at the wrists of making the sleeve solid so you don’t have a gap that might reveal alpha cuts etc. Tons of colour options available, but Skell opted for black, natch.
Short and sweet today, I’m afraid. Go forth and shop!
