Manvatar Love

So none of this stuff is new, in fact some of it is quite old, but I was wandering around in my malt (or manvatar, or male avatar, whatever you want to call it) when I realized how much I love this MiaSnow male skin and how I have never really expressed that love.  Well, here it is!
This is what my av is wearing right now.  My man avs tend to wear FIR&MNA and Pig almost exclusively.  I have bits and pieces from other brands but these two always seem to call to me.
 OK, have fun!
Skin: MiaSnow
Clothing: Pig (shirt free @ Free Dove as part of an outfit) some of it might not be available but most is I think.
Facial Stitches: Miss Shippe's Studio
Neck Hickey: Ero Rabbi, free (includes chest version as well for male and female)
Pose: Estetica
Shoes: FIR&MNA (this kind with the neon on the bottom is no longer available I believe but you can get them in plain black and others as well still)

N is for Nahua

When Cajsa let it be known on Plurk that Squinternet Larnia, creator of Donna Flora, was very ill in RL I was very upset.  While Squinternet is on my in-world friends list, I have never talked to her beyond business purposes.  Why?  Because she intimidates me.  Not in the "I'm afraid of her" sort of way but in the "I am constantly in awe of her talent and don't feel worthy of speaking to her" sort of way.  I know, it's really strange and silly for someone to get starstruck in SL, but when someone has genuine talent, real artistic talent that goes beyond pushing pixels around in photoshop, I can't help it.  Donna Flora's pieces really are art.
Check out the detail on this necklace.  I don't even know where I would begin to describe the colors, textures, prim work, and general awesome style so I'll just let you look on your own.  I know people cover her clothing quite often, and believe me I have many folders of them, but I wanted to show the jewelry since I think accessories often get overlooked.
I am praying for Squinternet and I sincerely hope she gets better, and soon, so I can work up the nerve to talk to her before I get too shy again.  If you would like to see the rest of the Donna Flora A-Z posts please check HERE. Best wishes Squinternet!
