Some Love for the Men

Technically, this skin has been available for a few weeks now in the CSI shopping sim, Fashion Ave, as well as on Onrez. We had wanted to save the official release in our store until we found the time to create a few outfits to go alongside it but it seems like there simply aren't enough hours in the day to do so. So here they are. These skins fall very nicely between photoreal and hand drawn. Like our women's line, they are a hybrid skin. We wanted them to compliment our women's line but gave them a little extra contrast to add strength to the detail. Each skin comes with a version with and without scalp hair and they are available in 6 skin tones. We might consider red haired and blonde versions if we hear there is enough of a demand and as always, we are happy to do customs. In addition to a Clean Cut and Beat (goatee) option, we've created a Mature look, a few extra lines and wrinkles lend the skin a dignified older man look.

OHMIGOSH! Thank you so much for making a mature male skin Roslin! I have been mentioning repeatedly how a SL friend of mine in his early 50's couldn't find an older good looking skin anywhere. You're quite the pioneer. :) Great Job!

Thanks but CJ gets all the credit for this one!

Now when will someone make mature skins for women??? Not everyone wants to look like an 18-year old pole dancer! :) Seriously, I want to look like a more mature woman, but virtually all women's skins and shapes are designed more for modeling than for real people. Roslin and CJ, take a chance on "women of a certain age". Please.

I don't know why I've taken so long to comment on this post, but TaP Vivant Men is one of my favourite faces in SL skin. Great work Ros and CJ. (was that grammatically correct?)

Another compliment on the mature men's skin. But where in the store does one find it? I keep tripping over all the women's displays...

I too have been struggling with a way to be a mature yet attractive woman in SL -- une femme d'un certain age, to use that high school French. Your beautiful Septembre eye liner smeared badly when I slid bags under my eyes, so it sits unused in my inventory. And there's no way I know to add a few tasteful wrinkles. I would be thrilled to spend my Lindens on mature women's skins.
