RicoRacer Flux: Killing Me Softly…

Killing Me Softly…



I’ve been wanting to do a fashion blog on this song by Roberta Flack “Killing Me Softly”. It is one of my favorite songs because it is tender and relatable. Have you ever heard a song that just speaks to you? Some songs are like that just like fashion. I wanted to create a look that is casual but chic and stylish….something a modern musician would wear. This COCO black leather jacket with the gold trim collar is perfect. It is simple with its clean lines yet elegant. I really love the Gold trim on the collar; other colors are also available like black or silver. The super sexy Tableau Vivant see-through shirt is a nice contrast to the clean lines of the jacket. I really love mixing and matching contrasting textures..makes it interesting. The stylish SWAT pants is also from Tableau Vivant. Check out the realistic folds along the length of the pant legs. Necklace is from one of my favorite jewelry store in SL: Rozoregalia. I might not be able to kill you softly with a song, but I hope I killed it in style. 🙂

MUSIC: Killing Me Softly With His Song



Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song

I heard he sang a good song
I heard he had a style
And so I came to see him
To listen for a while
And there he was this young boy
A stranger to my eyes


I felt all flushed with fever
Embarrassed by the crowd
I felt he found my letters
And read each one out loud
I prayed that he would finish
But he just kept right on


He sang as if he knew me
In all my dark despair
And then he looked right through me
As if I wasn’t there
And he just kept on singing
Singing clear and strong

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song.

FASHION: OMG! For the past few days, my blog daily hits have been reaching around 1.5k every day and it kinda got me excited into blogging again. Yay! I just want to thank you all for your continued support. Please know it is very much appreciated and I hope this blog can and have helped you in some way as it is intended to do.

Now, Everyone knows vitamins can make you stronger but I prefer VITAMEN.  The ultra sexy and super cool underwear designs in Second Life by Vitamen Hax. This particular one I’m wearing is very adult oriented that I had to stamped it classified. LOL. I recently modeled this outfit from the recent “KING of BULGE” Vitamen show where I had to style around the underwear provided. If you missed the show, you miss out on all the sexiness. ;p The bare-all shirt is from ELIXIR and it is made of latex. It comes with a protective red shoulder pads that are fit for all those active boys who do rough things. lol. The boxing gear from EVILLAST comes with the headgear, boxing gloves and even the band aid on the nose. Me ❤ them. Now, I’m ready to rumble. You game????

UNDERWEAR: VITAMEN SideRing Sheer Lace Bikini

You think you got the best of me…
Think you had the last laugh?
Bet you think that everything good is gone.
Think you left me broken down..
Think that I’d come running back?
Baby you don’t know me, cause you’re dead wrong.

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
Stand a little taller!
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone.
What doesn’t kill you makes a fighter.
Footsteps even lighter!
Doesn’t mean I’m over cause you’re gone.
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, stronger…
Just Me, Myself and I!

Suit: (SARTORIA) Traveller’s MILLS black suit
HAT: Shai Bowler’s Hat
SHOES: Sartoria Elegance Shoes

A very nice suit by TRAVELLERS, formerly known as Sartoria, called MILLS Suit. I love the nice craftsmanship and simple elegance of the suit. The suit is very unique with the two tones that complements each other nicely. The white shirt with the skinny black tie adds a beautiful contrasts to the dark jacket. Shai’s bowler’s hat completes the look of an English Gentleman with a flair for the old days gone by. It is suitable in a business setting, a fancy restaurant dinner  or to a nice relaxing stroll in a park. My hubby took me on a fabulous date yesterday and this suit was just perfect.

“Chasing Cars”

We’ll do it all. Everything, On our own.
We don’t need…Anything Or anyone.If I lay here… If I just lay here,
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?I don’t quite know How to say How I feel.
Those three words Are said too much. They’re not enough.If I lay here… If I just lay here,
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
Forget what we’re told Before we get too old.
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life.

Let’s waste time..
Chasing cars Around our heads.
I need your grace To remind me
To find my own.

If I lay here… If I just lay here,
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
Forget what we’re told Before we get too old.
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life.

All that I am. All that I ever was…
Is here in your perfect eyes, they’re all I can see.
I don’t know where. Confused about how as well..
Just know that these things will never change for us at all.

If I lay here… If I just lay here,
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

belt:  *COCO* WideBelt – white
pants: SHIKI Cotton Slacks – grey stripes

I’m a graduate and professional model from excellent fashion academies and i’ve been modeling since May of 2010. I’m an exclusive model for elite designers, i have good live modeling experience in stores, good runway experience, various print jobs and i’m a cover model for magazines. I strive to excell at being an excellent model, to learn something new every day and to help others in the same way. I’m always friendly, happy, and always trying to do all my best.

MVW contest: Almost one year ago i was into a male fashion store and i was just starting out as an trainee model when i learned about MrVW contest from a friend. I was impressed from that moment of great opportunity. It become really my first goal from that day and i always proclaimed this at my closer friends. So, i started to work hard every day, building a private runway too behind my house (LOL), training me in walks and poses and sharing experiences and emotions with people who have always believed in my ability to model. I’m glad cause i did everything with professionalism without forgetting the fun. I suppose all this helped me to achieve the title of finalist of this exciting contest. Whatever will be the result, i’m sure this contest is going to be my best ever cause i have various friends here and i met someone new too. It’s a great experience that let improve myself so i’m putting 100% of myself for the final event, always being professional and filling what i do with my personality and my sense of style. My primary purpose is to show myself not only like a excellent model.. but here i am, so.. why don’t try to win? 😉

MEET Mr. Japan 2011: Zachary Zufreur

MR. Japan 2011: Zachary Zufreur

It was by chance I entered Mr VW. At that time, I was photographing my client, BOSL Top Male Model RicoRacer Flux, when he mentioned that the Mr. VW contest is on and egged me to submit an entry. After much persuasion, I decided to take the plunge into the unknown. Being shortlisted for the audition was when things started to feel ‘real’. I did a crash course on runway / poses / prims and styling from my friends who are models. My first public runway walk was during the auditions and it was nerve wrecking knowing that so many people, including the judges were watching me. But soon as i was on the runway, I felt the adrenaline rush and I knew that I fell in love with modeling. 

Winning the title of Mr. Virtual World would mean that many doors of opportunities would be opened not just for me, but also for many aspiring designers and photographers. I’ve always believed that SL is a bridge to the real world. That photoshop skills could be picked up, improved and polished and that skill could be applied to the real world. I also believe in discovering and endorsing talented new designers who deserve a chance to shine.

New Male Suit at R:A:D:

There is a BRAND NEW Designer in Second Life that you must check out because of his very edgy and totally unique designs.

Redclaw Inshan, a fantastic  new designer of R:A:D: Red Alert Designs is debuting his totally awesome designs with this FIERCE new suit for men. The “Dragon” suits come in three bold colors: Red, Purple and Silver. It is totally unique and can be worn in any event that you want to be noticed. This complete outfit comes with a shirt, jacket, belt, vest and shoes. It is a daring suit that combines high fashion and adventure.

I am modeling the complete Silver Dragon Suit above. As you can see, the fit is exemplary and displays the contours of the body very well. It is a handsome suit that you can wear almost anywhere, whether a formal event or an adventurous outing. I love the flexibility of this suit. No matter where you are and for what event, you will surely turn heads.

The Red Dragon Suit I am modeling above is just fantastic. I took off the jacket so you can see the amazing vest inside. Note the sharp contrast of the colors and how it shows the body well. This is not your boring basic black suit. The textures and folds make this suit look so realistic that you can almost feel it with your hands. Check out the little details such as the intricate Asian Patterns on the Jacket, Vest and Pants. The dragon prints add a touch of adventure and mystery which makes this outfit so unique.


Take a closer look at the shirt and observe the great detail that is put into the texture, folds and patterns. I love the pinstripe design of the shirt with the cool buttons. I really love that dragon design as well because it adds character to the suit. It has a very masculine appeal that surely the ladies will love and make some men envious. If you want to put some edge and fierceness in your formal wear, then look no further.  Be BOLD and DARING!
