Remember 2009, when Winter Jefferson, SL’s favorite male-fashion vampire, offered us a makeover for Philip Linden’s avatar? If you don’t, go and refresh yourself, and then prepare. For Iris Ophelia, Hamlet Au’s fashion and gaming correspondent at New World Notes, is trying to make over Ham — for the second time.
Long-time readers of NWN will recall that Ham wore the same skin and seersucker system suit for years, probably (I guess) since he was the embedded house correspondent from Linden Lab in his blog’s early days. It took Winter Jefferson again to update Ham’s look, back in 2010, and then it was still pretty similar to what he looked like before. (Ham does like to stay similar to his RL looks, I’ll say — though he’s usually more in jeans than a suit.) Now Iris Ophelia is taking him on again, all the way from his 200x-vintage hair to his (apparently) shoeless feet. It’s a wonderful piece to read; even Winter has kicked in on it again, and I couldn’t resist offering my own thoughts. (He needs to get away from the ice-cream suits occasionally!)
Hmmm…. Methinks we really need Tim Gunn in world. If anyone, Tim could do something about the clothes on this man….
