I first noticed Liquidh3ll Carter in other people’s plurks chiming in with his hilarious comments. But I’m always too shy to add people on plurk. Luckily he sent me a friend request himself and that’s when I noticed all the questions he asks everyone on his timeline. In fact, he’s made a whole database of the questions, it’s hilarious! LOL I think he’s secretly planning to take over the world, or something.
Anyhow, I find him to be so sweet and charming that I couldn’t resist asking him to pose for me for another male fashion blog post where I pick on some male friends and ask them intrusive questions or just bash them, cuz you know…it’s fun.
So here are some of the questions I asked him while I was taking these images:
Strawberry Singh: awwww, look at you getting all dressed up for this :P
Liq (liquidh3ll.carter): confession, ive been wearing this for 2 weeks
Strawberry Singh: LOLOL, That’s so going in the post
Liq (liquidh3ll.carter): CBF CHANGING
Strawberry Singh: ok so my first question is…What do you love about SL?
Liq (liquidh3ll.carter): I love the people of Second Life. If it weren’t for the people, no matter how much of a creative outlet this virtual world is, my attention span wouldn’t survive it. I think it’s the different people and their dynamics that make this place and really everything I do at the root of it is for the people. It’s very “oldschool SL thinking”; for the people, of the people, by the people. They’re the reason for me, without a doubt.
Strawberry Singh: So what’s up with all the questions you’re always asking on plurk? :P
Liq (liquidh3ll.carter): I like to know how people collectively think and what elicits response. When they contribute, I like to understand how they get to that point and their trains of thought. It’s never about a single person but more about the community as a whole – what makes us all tick? What are we passionate for? Why do we think we are the way we are? We’re in this virtual space so much and a lot of it we know intrinsically, I just like to field those ideas into a generic structure of curious questions!
Strawberry Singh: I hear you are collecting all this data, there might even be spreadsheets of answers involved. Is this true, and if so, what are you planning to do with it?
Liq (liquidh3ll.carter): Hahaha, there’s no spreadsheet of answers, although I did make every question I asked between Sept 2011 and Sept 2012 available for browsing for a short while. Everything I want to do with it, I kind of already have; when I read through the answers and the tangent discussions that follow, it gives me a pseudo-fleshed out idea of how our community comes together. That and the FBI watchlist projects.
Strawberry Singh: After reading and obtaining all this data, what have you learned about the community?
Liq (liquidh3ll.carter): We are a whole mess of people with different, often conflicting, wants and needs. And we all get thrown into this dorm room of Plurk. The public timeline is the hallway and occasionally you pop into a room or two when you overhear a conversation and want to contribute. Sometimes some doors are locked unless you have a special key. We’re a bunch of really nutty people trying to make do by clashing and melding with others. It’s a beautiful collision. The one thing I take away is that everyone has their own challenges and try not to judge – for the most part, people have a high moral compass and tenacity that puts them at odds with others sometimes. But I’ve seen both terrible and absolutely selfless things from the same individuals time and time again. Go figure, huh?
Strawberry Singh: I can absolutely believe that. So what is it that YOU do on SL when you’re not collecting data on people in order to take over the world?
Liq (liquidh3ll.carter): Recently, I’ve been doing a lot of contract content creation work. This is either graphic design for logos or templates or scripting contracts for other people’s products or events. I’ve been trying to learn mesh, but it’s slow going mainly because of the immense investment of time and energy that goes into that. I’m very impressed by mesh creators for this reason; I think they have incredible patience, their skills are amazing and their products beautifully engaging. I have some logos on my flickr and I scripted the Global Domination event by The Hottie Cooterati Experience that recently ended. I’m waiting for some feedback, but I hear people enjoyed the frustration of solving puzzles LOL
Strawberry Singh: Yeah it was a lot of fun. What are your future plans for second life? Planning to open up a store? What are you working towards?
Liq (liquidh3ll.carter): I currently have a Marketplace-only store which I release like one thing every few months for. SL is kind of a hobby and creative outlet from the stresses of my real life. I think it would be kind of cool to regularly create and release more products and even be involved in hunts, but at this stage, I don’t have the time to actively market and commit to deadlines. There’s nothing I hate more than flaking on people for committed releases, so I want to make sure I’m in a position to promise something. Otherwise, SL can be a glorified chat room where I connect and catch up with people who don’t have me on Skype.
Strawberry Singh: How did you learn about sl?
Liq (liquidh3ll.carter): I learned about SL by accident. I was bored while on mid-semester break at university, so I tried out some MMOs and SL stuck due to it’s platform for creation and social aspects. I didn’t expect to stay, but now Liquid is facing down his 6th rezday this July. I was lucky enough to meet some really fantastic people early on that helped shape my experience well, so I’m super grateful for those that help others.
Strawberry Singh: How old are you btw?
Liq (liquidh3ll.carter): I’ll be 27 on March 24th.
Strawberry Singh: So now I’m going to ask you the question that I’m sure all the girls want to know the answer to. Are you single?
Liq (liquidh3ll.carter): Hahaha! Oh, the StrawberrySingh.com exclusive, huh? I’m currently dating Scarlet Chandrayaan. She’s a little dirty ginger with a mesh home and garden store, Alouette. I have always kept my personal life on the private side and I’m glad that she’s of the same mindset. I’ve never hidden it; I’ve told anyone who has asked the right questions ;)
Strawberry Singh: And it’s ok if I mention it on the blog and possibly link to her profile and any incriminating pictures I find on google image search?
Liq (liquidh3ll.carter): I’ll even help you find the incriminating pictures, tbh.
Strawberry Singh: Awesome! I’m almost done. Is there anything else you want to mention?
Liq (liquidh3ll.carter): Strawberry Singh is a fruit-bovine pervert.
Strawberry Singh: I see. Well just for that I may have to edit some of your answers and put words into your mouth to make it look like you’re out to destroy the world. Or just you know, stalk people or something!!!
Liq (liquidh3ll.carter): Hahahahahah

It was definitely time for another male fashion post where I grab one of my male friends whom I think has great style. Today my victim is none other than AKAMi. I used to know him as Aldero Akami back in 2008 when he was a stylist and photographer for KMADD. I asked him what exactly he did for KMADD back then and he responded with, “I used to take photographs for clients and generally poke fun of Maddox DuPont as he stood about naked doing shapes.” LOL
I remember the first time I met him, I was hanging out with some friends and we were all on voice and he instantly caught my attention because he was very friendly and very well dressed. I saw him around flickr and here and there inworld at times and he always knew how to put a great look together. He had to leave SL back in 2011 because his real life got busy but he’s back now with a new avatar but still looking stylish as ever. Check out his new flickr, he’s got some serious photoshop talent as well.
But I always knew he was really stylish and a pro at photoshop, however today he totally took me by surprise when he started serenading me as I took these images. He’s turned out to be a phenomenal singer as well! Is there anything this guy CAN’T do? LOL I totally forced him to create a soundcloud.com account and upload the song he was singing to me, it’s one of my favorites and I wanted to make sure you guys heard it as well. This is AKAMi singing Hallelujah. I’m trying to convince him to do some live shows!
Thank you so much Aldero for taking time out to not only pose for me but serenading me whilst doing so, it was great to see you again! <3

It was definitely time for me to do another male fashion post. The number of male victims that have graced my blog is now up to 26. I’m hoping to get some more over the summer.
Meet Nathan Chaffe, he is one of the most talented photographers I have had the pleasure of knowing. I first met Nathan back when I won the Belleza contest and he had so nicely immed me to congratulate me. Over the years, from time to time he would contact me again and we would have nice little chats. I was always amazed by the work on his flickr. He has great style and a great eye for photography. His pictures are simple yet creative. I adore them. That’s why I was really excited to hear that he has started his own male fashion blog as well! I also made him join plurk, so if you’re on plurk, make sure to add him and be nice to him so he doesn’t yell at me for inviting him! :P
He also recently took a picture of me which I absolutely adore, but I will be blogging that for you guys tomorrow with some exciting news about something amazing that is about to hit the grid. So make sure to visit me again tomorrow for that update.

It’s been a while since I’ve done a male fashion post on my blog so I thought I should bring it back with a bang by introducing you to one of the sexiest men in my friend list. I’ve known Mr. Claudius Fouroux for a few years now and I cannot say that I have ever seen him look anything but completely drool worthy. He may look like a gorean master to you in this post, however, he’s one of the most brilliant male stylists I’ve seen on the grid. Every time I have seen him he always has a completely new look that he’s been playing around with. My favorite was when he had his dreadlocks, I was just swooning! I wish I had taken a pic back then.
Rumor has it that Mr. Fouroux is quite the ladies man, although I haven’t really seen anything to back that up, but I thought I should mention it in any case to make this post more scandalous. Sorry Claud, but you knew I was gonna throw you under the bus when you signed up for this! <3
When Mr. Fouroux is not busy being his incredibly handsome self in SL, I really have no idea what else he does or what his likes and dislikes are. He’s actually kind of a mystery. I know he used to be a fashion blogger back in the day, but I really haven’t seen him doing much lately. Perhaps we should all do some investigating. :P
A big thank you to Mr. Claudius Fouroux for taking the time out of his busy shagging schedule and posing for me. Also a big thank you to Miss Zaara Kohime for joining us in this photoshoot to be one of his harem girls.

For today’s male fashion post I got to interview the stylish couple, Gabe Bookmite and Garrett Ceriano. I met and got to know Gabe and Garrett on plurk. Gabe has an innocence about him that is not only lovable but hilarious at the same time. His plurks and responses always leave me giggling to myself. Garrett on the other hand, well I’ll be honest here, he kinda intimidated me at first. LOL But after a while I realized he’s quite a nice guy and not so intimidating. :P
Now they have come together and started their own fashion blog. If you haven’t seen it yet, check out: The Cerianos | Love and Fashion
So while I was taking their pictures, I of course had to do my usual poking, prodding and asking completely innocent questions. I love their responses because they really made their personalities shine. Here’s a glimpse of the Cerianos. <3
Berry: How long have you guys known each other in sl?
Garrett Ceriano: 5 minutes
Gabe Ceriano: two years
Gabe Ceriano: well one
Gabe Ceriano: almost two
Berry: and what made you guys decide to start a blog together?
Gabe Ceriano: Um, Garrett has a nice style and I was getting bored of just me
Garrett Ceriano: I chose to blog with him because it’s what’s good for me.
Berry: were you threatened and blackmailed to do it?
Gabe Ceriano: Yes I did.
Garrett Ceriano: Well, my life is in danger
Gabe Ceriano: I told him he has to blog with me
Garrett Ceriano: We had intended on blogging together but I had never gotten around to doing that with him because I resisted and also had something “better” to do
Berry: hahahahhahaha I love your bluntness.
Garrett Ceriano: So we just decided since we get dressed up and such to go to functions together we could do the same for a blog
Garrett Ceriano: And i’ll give him credit for our new blog totally being his idea and it gives me something to use my creativity on, I’m more productive under pressure lol
Berry: awwww, you guys make a good team.
Berry: ok Garrett, tell me what you like most about Gabe. :P
Garrett Ceriano: afk
Berry: I think he’s running away from the question
Gabe Ceriano: he is. He dislikes me T-T
Gabe Ceriano: So Garrett what do you like about me? lol
Garrett Ceriano: We just met like 5 minutes ago
Garrett Ceriano: The things I like most about him are…
Garrett Ceriano: He can stick to scheduling better than I can
Garrett Ceriano: He can wear anything and pull it off, I can’t…
Berry: I would have to agree with that (him being able to pull off anything)
Garrett Ceriano: He puts up with my temper
Berry: you have a pretty bad temper huh?
Garrett Ceriano: NO COMMENT
Berry: ok Gabe you tell me now, what do you like most about Garrett
Gabe Ceriano: I typed this when garrett was talking so
Garrett Ceriano: He likes that I cut him off when I’m still talking
Gabe Ceriano: Garrett is very passionate with everything he does. He has his view points as is very unwilling to change his view points. Sometimes he lets me be the boss. Sometimes. He’s sweet and kind and childish and he fixes my typos. He always makes me laugh…like now <-<
Berry: awwwwwwww you guys are totally adorable.
Garrett Ceriano: I think we keep each other grounded
I really had such a fun time chatting with both of them. They are both very down to earth and friendly, not to mention incredibly stylish. So do check out their blog when you get the chance.
Thank you Gabe and Garrett for posing for me. <3
