I would like to thank Bay City’s Chief of Police, T.J. Hooker (really) his service to our fair city and for not arresting me for this picture.
The police station is in a G-rated sim, Edgartown, and per The Lab, I shouldn’t be topless there while any male avatar isn’t so restricted. This is discrimination but really, I shouldn’t have been there.
What? Uccie agreeing with the No Boobies Rule? Yes. T.J. set up this great build as a role play (RP) environment. As with the rest of Bay City, the 40s-60s era isn’t really suited to topless women. While I’m ready to muck about most of Bay City topless, I do try to respect the wishes of others so don’t expect me to be semi-nude at the station again, unless I’m being arrested.
Hey, T.J.! There’s an idea for an RP for yah ….
Happy Topless Tuesday!
A few days vacation in (so called) Real Life means I have time to just relax in Second Life for a bit. Having received a boat as a gift, I’ve been cruising the Blake Sea and parked at Siren’s Isle for today’s picture. Yes, the region does allow topless women but not all the places I visited were Mature rated so I broke the law a few times.
One of my plans while off work is to visit the real life USS Albacore, a retired submarine in nearby Portsmouth, NH. Legally, I could be topless while visiting, subject to arrest only if a disturbance breaks out or if asked to leave by the group that runs the facility (it is privately owned, I believe). Men can visit sans shirt, too, though they aren’t likely to be escorted off. But I’ll likely go with a sweatshirt as I’ll be alone and I’m still not confident enough to be bold around people in the flesh, so to speak. When some of the area’s various topless protests happen this Summer, though, I’m of a mind to go.
Angela, my wife, started celebrating Topless Tuesday before me!
But I quickly joined in and we celebrated together!
As has been mentioned, I have two pair of jeans in Real Life, two pair of comfy sneakers, several pair of Crocs, one pair of boots, eight work shirts (between two jobs), one dress (for funerals), plus various T-shirts and sweatshirts. A pretty light closet. In Second Life, I’m a clothes horse. Hardly a week goes by I don’t buy something. If there’s a special occasion, I often spend a day shopping. My Inventory has some 30+ pair of boots because of this. And don’t get me started on hair styles.
It is rare, though, that I spend a lot of time on just one outfit, carefully selecting each element of the look and swapping out each item several times individually and in combinations so things are just right. Then I do it again the next day. Last December was the most recent time I did this (see here) but compared to the outfit below, that was a walk in the park.
It started with the Insanya Corset. Fat Packs are seldom my choice, but this piece is so good I splurged so I could get all the colors. It comes with fitted mesh pasties, a nice bonus. Then I added some leather pants, trying each of my four pair, but that seemed too easy. Then I tried all my skirts, finishing with the Blueberry Kyla mini with straps. The first configuration was with my Maitreya mesh body, but this kinda outfit requires Go Big or Go Home, so I switched to my SLink Hourglass body. That meant the calf-high boots I really liked had to go, but the KC Zephora thigh-highs work almost as nicely.
Then I messed around with makeups and jewelry, nothing super special, though the Trilobyte cuffs look good and I had to get a new collar (Hartgummi). My wedding ring and a Magellan Detector Ring round out the set with Angelle 50mm hoop earrings.
Of course, the skin is a favorite, Lumae‘s Adore Aegean. I tried nearly every hair style I have, the Dura-Boy 63 two tone being the best, though not the last I tried. It matched the coloring I set on the corset, skirt belt and panties, and on the boots. Changing this color will be easy and I’m sure my wife will love seeing this outfit in purple.
BAY CITY, SL (26th December, 2016) – Citizens of Bay City, Second Life’s® city by the bay, will be marking the end of the year in fine fashion, attending the annual “Prim Drop” in the Bay City Fairgrounds in North Channel (SLurl) on the evening of the 31st of December. The party will include an hour-long set of DJed tunes presented by Marianne McCann, as well as fireworks and other festive fun. Food and drink will also be provided for all attendees.
The event is presented as an outdoor, high-class, wintertime soirée, and black tie attire and/or full dress is requested. All Second Life® Residents are welcome to attend and ring in the New Year with the Bay City community.
This will also be the last event within Bay City this year for donating to Child’s Play Charity. Child’s Play is a 501c3 non profit organization offers online communities such as ours an opportunity to help seriously ill children around the globe during their hospital stays with the purchase of games and gaming equipment.
As of the 24th of December, Bay City has raised L$151,408 for Child’s Play Charity through their annual silent auction and tree lighting concert, as well as other local events.
Bay City is a mainland community, developed by Linden Lab® and home to the Bay City Alliance. The Bay City Alliance was founded in 2008 to promote the Bay City regions of Second Life and provide a venue for Bay City Residents and other interested parties to socialize and network. It is now the largest group for Residents of Bay City.
