I'm going to announce this new service even though all the details haven't been worked out yet.
I'm sure you have all heard of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy so I don't have too much explaining to do. "[...] gay men are superior in matters of fashion, style, personal grooming, interior design and culture." So take advantage of this in Second life to gain yourself an attractive AVI which catches women's attention. Because us girls like to be seen with men that make us look good.
It all came about because I had several conversations with girlfriends about how crappy men's AVIs are, and how said men just don't seem to want to do anything about it. And franky many of them would be pretty hopeless even if hey tried.
But I know some gay guys who look amazing! Some of them are just great at building AVIs and picking out clothes, and others are smart enough to hire personal shoppers.
To take advantage of this service you will need L$5000. Of this, L$2k (paid in advance) is used to pay for your Queer Eye's time and a realistic shape, and L$3k you spend on a skin, an AO, hair, shoes and clothes. You'll end with a fully dressed new AVI.
To a girl like me, L$5k is not a lot of money. But it seems some men are complete tightwads who would balk at the idea of spending that kind of Linden, even though it's peanuts in real money. But if you insist on thinking about it... if you are a submissive looking for a Mistress, a Queer Eye makeover will help you get the look a Mistress is looking for. One guy I know of is a stripper and host in an adult club, how long do you think it would take him to make the money back in extra tips? And as it seems that only 1 in every 1000 straight men looks like a perfect 10, your chances of finding romance will be significantly improved.
To be fair, there isn't as much choice for the male shopper in regards to skin and hair, and it can be difficult to know where to go. Us women have the advantage of being able to see women who do look great and ask them for advice and tips. And there are no shortage of fashion blogs. One of the advantages of hiring a personal shopper is that they won't be experimenting on you, they know whats good quality, whats good value, what will work and where to get it. There will be no wasted money on items which look good in the photos but can't be made to fit, and no wasted time traipsing around shops looking, and no uncertainty.
If you are interested, contact me in-world.
T&C - You pay L$2000 to your personal shopper up front. All other items you buy direct from the vendor. If at any time you deviate from your personal shopper's advice, they reserve the right to terminate the arrangement. If you run out of money before the shopping is done, they terminate the arrangement. If you go AFK or waste time, the personal shopper may suspend the appointment to a time of their choosing. You are paying your personal shopper for their time, and their good taste, refunds will not be given on the basis that it doesn't align with your taste. Refunds will only be given in the event that the service is not provided, in which case I (Vicky Caramel) stand as guarantor of the advanced payment.
Rates are L$500 for half an hour if you should wish to seek additional outfits or help with your profile information. All fees must be payed in advance, no exceptions.
