Mr. Virtual World 2016: I Finally Did It!


When the announcement came out yesterday that I was the new winner of Mr Virtual World, 1st Place for 2016, I felt a huge rush of adrenalin, my heart was pounding, and I felt so happy I could burst! It’s been so long a dream of mine to hold the Mr Virtual World title, and to finally achieve this in my fashion career has just made my year so far.

It’s been an honor to represent Japan as Mr Virtual Japan 2016, a country that I may not be from but that I admire so much for its rich culture, history and traditions as well as its contributions to fashion in SL especially. I’ve always been crazy about both RL and SL Japanese designers, including one of my personal favorites ever, the ever creative BareRose, who was responsible for my truly breathtaking costume of Tsukuyomi the Japanese Moon God for the National at the finale. It was truly a dream come true to work with her, June Dion, on this, and it’s been a wonderful experience all around to work with the nicest bunch of guys ever. my fellow hard-working and very talented candidates in this year’s pageant. To all the runner ups, congratulations and fistbumps all around men, you earned it!

Lastly but definitely not least I want to give a huge thanks to the organizers of this fine pageant, Miss DiamondGem Destiny and Reign Congrejo for giving me this chance and making it one of the best experiences in all of my Second Life. You were a pleasure to work with, so easy to talk to and helpful and your support through this meant a lot. I also have to mention my partner/wife Nicole Byrne for supporting and having faith in me, and same goes for all my great friends who came out to the challenges to cheer me on or just sent me messages of support. I feel so blessed to have such great people in my life.

I hope to do so much with this title to help others, and go forward into great things in my SL fashion/modeling career.

A Libertine Christmas


Christmas time is here again, time to face the family get together and put on 50 pounds from all that turkey and stuffing and pies, mmm yeah. One of the best parts of the holiday for me has always been decorating the tree with my family, and now Fallen Gods has a tree that has an advanced script that allows it be interactive with ornaments you can get from a gacha machine called A Libertine Christmas they have out now at the Midwinter Fair!

That’s right you can actually drag ornaments and candle lights on the tree and they go on it instantly, and the balls have different texture change on them too. It’s really fantastic for such a low price, tree sold separately. Well done Fallen Gods, thank you for making SL feel like home for the holidays!

The Shadow over Innsmouth

This is Halloween! This is Horrorfest! Everybody’s waiting for the next surprise!

More gruesome goodies from Horrorfest to show you today, like this terrifying Cthulhu head from creative genius of Curio Obscura, sure to make everyone worship you at your next Halloween party or HP Lovecraft book club meeting. Also sure to be a gross-out party fav is this “weird thing” bursting from my chest from SongBird, and I couldn’t love ImmateriA more for having an outfit named after my rock n’ roll idol, Lux Interior (RIP).

Be sure to check out the Depraved Nation’s Body Modification Fair as well this month where you can get these new skully nail appliers from KOSH perfect for any monster style, and the spooky edition of the Fantasy Gacha Fair where I got these wicked bracers.
