Learn something new. Try something different. Convince yourself that you have no limits.
I’m still having computer issues, issues that affect my picture taking on Second Life and thus, sadly, my blogging. RL is in a place right now where it’s very busy but also I’m not going to be able to buy a new computer or replace parts any time soon. So I’ve been thinking about my future on SL and in both lives really and I’ve decided it’s time for me to start learning how to create in Second Life. My poor computer still works although not 100%, I’m still able to log on SL and run some applications. Creating means I don’t have to work with deadlines while RL is this busy. As some of you may already know, I’ve been drawing facial hair for a few months now and selling them through my barbershop, Rake. I will keep doing this while I teach myself to create and rig clothing.
I’m going to focus on menswear to begin with and my store will be known as “Mr. Sunborne”. I’m going to learn something new. Try something different. I have no limits.
I hope you will join me on this journey and I hope you will enjoy my creations. Since I can’t, at this point in time, take HQ pictures to showcase other designers in my blog and because from now on that can also be interpreted as a conflict of interest, I have decided to stop blogging other brands. I will keep this blog however, to keep a journal of my progress as a designer. I hope you’ll like it.
Check out the awesome smart casual look that Hoorenbeek created with their Bjorn outfit! Suit pants, double monks (not shown), shirt and a perfectly styled loose tie and the pièce de résistance; a notch lapel blazer, blue with contrast piping. And as always in a two-buttoned suit; fasten the top button when standing, NEVER fasten the second button.
Now on to the drink of the day and day drinking! Mimosas! When I think of mimosas I think of one particular bottomless brunch M. and I had at Bad Egg in London. Sadly, Bad Egg had to close after taking a bad beating from Covid-19. I really hope to see them back again soon. No. 59 is at this round of EQUAL10 with delicious Champagne Mimosa dispenser. You get raspberry and orange juice mimosas and champagne bottles on tray. Champagne bottle decor and champagne glasses decor.
Showcasing some wonderful creations by Dutchie today and as many of you I’m sure are aware, Dutchie founder Froukje Hoorenbeek is going to be unable to create this summer while recovering from back surgery (fractured vertebrae). To help pay for her post surgery rehabilitation Froukje has extended her marketplace offerings with several item bundles on sale; make sure to check them out if you’re looking for decor items for your home or sim.
Dutchie’s waterfront cottages are highly detailed traditional little wooden cottages with a unique architectural style and open plan layout, named after a beautiful lake area with marshes, grasslands & reed beds, popular for swimming and water sports. The cottages originally came in 3 colors: Raspberry, Sage, and Cornflower but Dutchie has now made a white version which is on sale at 50% on the Dutchie marketplace over the summer.
I’m only carrying the Dutchie lifebuoy ring (it floats and has sit animations) because that was the best way to also show the Vin Shorts by ERAUQS that I’m wearing. The Vin Shorts come in several colors and prints and are compatible with Belleza Jake (shown on me), Legacy and Gianni male mesh bodies. Just do it, guys, sag them shorts just a little and show a bit of underwear!

Ultimately, there’s one investment that supersedes all others: Invest in yourself. Nobody can take away what you’ve got in yourself, and everybody has potential they haven’t used yet.
NEW from AGATA mode! The Logan outfit consists of 3 separate pieces; polo shirt, polo shorts and scarf. Compatible with Jake (shown on me), Legacy and Signature (Gianni? I haven’t had time to ask so try demo) male mesh bodies.
