The Boys are in Town

Visit the boys @ Skin/Shape Expo today: KMADD Events (35, 245, 21)
Main store @ Poidor (176, 126, 142)

Today, the 2009 Skin/Shape expo will open its doors to the public. Select sales from exhibitors will benefit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure® organization, a non-profit grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists who are working together to “save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures”. Manifest is donating 75% of the proceeds from the “Ramamurthy” shape to this cause.

The 7 shapes that Manifest is displaying at Shape/Skin Expo will only be available for the duration of the fair. After October 7, they will not be sold again.

All shapes at the expo:

  • Cost L$500
  • Are Copy/Mod/No Transfer
  • Have a L$0 demo for previewing

A free “Anewbis” shape (Copy/No Mod/No Trans) with 3 body types – muscular, athletic and svelte – is also available for L$1 during opening weekend.

Shape Look Book: Lauridsen, Mauro, Nesbitt

What makes a great shape? The vision of it’s wearer.

With the diversity of product that exists within Second Life™ and the ever-changing nature of style aesthetics, a shape – as the basis of one’s avatar identity – should be able to compliment a variety of choices.

Manifest shape demos (C/NM/NT) are available in-store @ L$0 (with enlarged feet and hands) for you to test with your existing range of skins, hairs, clothes and accessories, or to try with other demo products.

All shapes are sold in limited quantities to ensure that instances of coming face-to-face with your SL doppleganger(s) will be few and far between.

Manifest Shapes @ Retrology

In partnership with Puma Jie of The Boditorium, Manifest shape products will first be appearing at Retrology (84, 30, 31) . The following shapes are now available in limited release quantities. After they’re sold out they will never again be offered for sale in-world – a factor that is reflected in their pricing.

Demos available @ L$0, so please try before you buy.

Manifest Shapes in Second Life™

It seems like everyone who has been a resident of Second Life™ for some time develops their own signature of aesthetic values. Every person has their own take on shapes – what they should be, what they shouldn’t be and everything in between.

Over my time spent in SL™ I’ve made my fair share of shapes for fun or profit, and after many months of perseverating about whether or not I should start a shape business I’ve decided to dive in. Might as well – I’ve already got a folder full of gentlemen waiting to be released.

In the months spent as my brainchild I have a very specific direction I want to use to distinguish this shape business from the rest. The Manifest brand of products will be:

  • Limited edition
  • For male avatars only
  • Well suited to a variety of skins and tones
  • Tailored to different body type preferences
