Adriel: Clothes Make the Man

I’ve posted Adriel more than a few times. While Rei is my go-to model for the more gender-typical stuff, Adriel has always been the one I go to for softer things. But that’s mostly because he’s a mage and he pulls off this sort of thing better than Rei or my other men.

Adriel himself prefers women’s clothes to men’s, though. It’s just what he likes. He identifies as a man, and never pretends to be otherwise. It doesn’t land him many dates from either sex, but if dates are what he’s after, he’d probably make more of an effort to conform. And where’s the fun in that?

So I like to make dresses for him and Daisy Dukes and whatnot. I just converted my Grand Magister’s Robes to fit him, and, y’know, I dunno why I never think to convert my own junk. There’s some weighting issues (I was careless and slopped some front-tail paint onto the back-tail x.x), but overall it’s pretty much done. Dunno if I want to release it or not. I’m still flaking on other things, anyway. Ugh.

    Hey, good job of fitting the Grand Magister Robes for male use! I hadn't even realized you made those until recently – my female char loves that set! 🙂

    On another note, I finally got my shit together and uploaded some screenshots of your SoS AIO shop armor. I had recently tweaked the male housecarls to be not so fugly, so I let them model, plus a new guy I made. My daughter deigned to tell me that he wasn't as bad looking as my other male characters. Ha!

    Sorry to rattle on and on. But the models told me to tell you they really like the armors. In fact they got really 'excited' to wear the barbarian armor. So much so that…I didn't upload any pics of them. I'm not sure about uploading that graphic of pics. Don't wanna get banned. Ha!

    G'night. I should have gone to bed an hour ago. :p

    Ahhh that's awesome 😀 I love running into mod authors through some way and then discovering they made a mod I like a lot. My eastern body art mod winds up that way for people a lot, much to my surprise. I tend to forget it's there, and I'll be talking with them for a while before they suddenly realize, and we're both, "Oh, dang!" I see that one in the wild a decent amount, too, and I just sit quietly in the wings, giggling and clapping silently 😛 I hope that didn't sound like bragging or anything, it's just cool seeing people like the stuff I make. And on that note, thanks; I'm glad your gal likes my robes 🙂

    Your shots are great, I just saw them! I was gonna ask about your foine housecarls, but I guess you answered it. They look great! Am now wondering what constitutes "bad looking" in your daughter's world since Dekkar and your housecarls look pretty good to me idk 😛

    For what it's worth, my mods like that are marked adult, so you can upload whatever (within reason lol) without repercussion from the admin. I'm sure you'll find a couple of Khajiit erections either on the AiO or the Barbarian page itself >.> I totally get the reluctance, though.

    Thanks again for the compliment and the pics! Don't ever feel bad about rattling on to me; you've seen what I do 😛 G'night, hope you sleep well!

    Ugh, my daughter likes anime type games and the anime look. My male chars are 'too old' for her. Hahaha. I see anime-type characters on the Nexus, and I've downloaded a few of the anime men (I rarely DL females-my gal likes to be surrounded by men-lol) and they always look like they should be my son. Since I'm not a pedophile, I go for the mature looking men, thank you very much. 🙂

    And as for graphic shots, you know how it is. If I uploaded a close-up shot of a VJ, no one would blink an eye, but upload a very fine pic of a man's dick and some people get all up in arms. Or something. So, erring on the side of caution. lol

    Anywhooo, I'm going to dive into the world of Skyrim fantasy shortly, if I can stop downloading mods!

    And I have to try your eastern body art again – I downloaded it but for some reason it wouldn't display in racemenu. I think on my machine, if I have too many warpaint/tattoo mods, some of them don't show up. But that doesn't make sense. I finally got the TeraSouls tats to work so there's hope for me yet! 🙂

    Edit to my previous comment – ya know, if I read the nice instructions that modders so conveniently left for us goofy mod users, I would have noticed that your notes explicitly state to download the loose files for Race menu to make your paints work. duh. 😛 XD

    Yeah, the overtly anime characters don't tend to blow my hair back. I'm like you, they just look too young. Plus you get past a certain age and the "non-threatening boy" look just doesn't cut it lol

    Man, at this point I figure if someone's gonna rage at a dick they can go talk it out with their therapist. No joke, though, being able to post my smut is the biggest reason this blog exists, as well as the fact I can tell wandering assholes to shove it without worrying about eating a probation for being a meanie-head.

    Anywho, I'm glad you were able to get my paints working 😀 I really should go back and see if I can make more.

  • RefurbMadness

    Thanks 🙂 I'm thinking I'm going to post it as a big collection with some other dresses and shoes. That's mostly because I was in a rush to get them in game and I completely screwed up the original Grand Magister plugin >.>;

    If you ever wish to share pics they would be most welcome 🙂

    Sure. They're not so Nexus friendly, most of 'em, so let me know how you want them. Some of them aren't too Imgur friendly either, lol.

    Hmm. I need to rework that stuff and get back into game and take new shots. I've been trying to figure out Gimp and CK and I am a slow, slow learner.

  • RefurbMadness

    Probably the easiest way would be to either make a private imgur album you can link me to so I can embed from there, or you can zip things up and send them that way.

    You'll have to forgive me, but I don't remember if you're just "syl" on Nexus or if it's short for something…either way there's more than one syl so I don't want to bother the wrong one 😛 I'll PM you there my email address since I'd rather not post it here, disguised or not.

    I would offer some help with Gimp, but I'm only familiar with Photoshop and Gimp just confuses and irritates me when I have to use it. lol If you have CK questions though, I'd be happy to help, if I can. 🙂

  • syl

    Lol. I'm Syllisjehane on Nexus and on r/skryimmods. Morag24 on LL but I don't check there much. Probably on reddit the most. I'll PM you link to the Imgur album that I got done. Rethinking my approach to a couple of the more sensitive plot points, but we'll see.

    GIMP _is_ super confusing and irritating, but I'm getting through it ok. At least there are lots of short videos. CK is like another planet.

    Love this dress, and adore Adriel's personality as it comes along. I gotta post more pics and the other ways I wear this dress. Freaken love it <333 Sorry the pictures have been slow. I keep having to start playthrews over or forget to even take shots v,v. They are coming though and I still have to finish the present all loves.
