[#535] I’m Getting Drunk On A Plane

I might be passed out
In the baggage claim
But right now
I’m drunk on a plane

Dierks Bentley, ♫Drunk On A Plane

When it comes to scenes that I’m doing photos with if I have a theme (or soundtrack as I have referred to before) I like plays on words. If there’s a certain thing in the lyrics that I hone into I find a location or decor that fits. FOXCITY gave me an idea that I’d been brainstorming for a long time but until they released the Flight Club Backdrop at Kustom9 I couldn’t make it a reality.

The overall meaning (or message) of Dierks Bentley’s “Drunk On A Plane” isn’t what I’m trying to convey here but I am looking at it from the viewpoint of maybe someone who is a celebrity that tends to like their beverages a bit too much and on a personal jet you can party like it’s 1999 (or 2018 whatever you might like). Though from the looks at it, it’s a bit more than a party with all the bottles and 6 packs of beer.

I am quite grateful to Aleriah for allowing me to borrow her platform and also the skybox to help make this blog entry possible. Most of the time I am very prideful and don’t want people to help or assist but sometimes you just have to and with the results of this I think it was the right decision. Learning and getting a different point of view from a peer can help you in ways you might not have considered before.

FOXCITY Flight Club Backdrop features:

  • 100% Original Mesh
  • 2 different backdrops included (Day and Night)
  • Exclusive to Kustom9 until Nov. 10th

The pose I am using is also from a set by FOXCITY that was a previously release that works with this backdrop but was originally designed for the Limo backdrop they brought out a few months ago. It’s good that it serves a dual purpose as I went through a few different poses before I chose this one for the final scene photo.

One of the things I enjoy about being a blogger for The Men Jail is that it is filled with designers I know and admire but also a few that are new to the scene that I may not have had much interaction with and the shirt I am wearing is one of them. Unleashed is not a brand until recently I was familiar with but this “Nathan” shirt is honestly cool. I wore it a few times before I used it in a picture and played with the different designs the shirt comes with (as there is are two HUDs in the FATPACK, one for plain shirts and also one for graphic designed shirts).

Now that I’ve had the experience of wearing a product by Unleashed, I will certainly be keeping an eye out for future releases from them as this one is a pleasant addition to my wardrobe.

Unleashed Nathan Shirt features:

  • 100% original mesh
  • Single sale options (6 plain, 6 graphic tees)
  • FATPACKS options for each type available
  • Exclusively @ The Men Jail until October 28th

While the above two items are integral to the makeup of this scene, some of the items which are a part of my look as well as the decor also give it that extra something to help tell the story. Without the “RetroNerd Glassesy” by Paparazzi and the “Halloway Ripped Jeans” by Cold-Ash I could have made a scene that was like this but they certainly helped as it was the look I wanted to achieve.

A big help also came from the “Chronos Beer” set from 220ml, which I’ve used in other photos but not in the same capacity as this one and not as epicly either. The detail in this set really blows me away and there are so many options for you to choose from down to empty cases to half empty bottles…and there’s even a lime (as well as a bottle with a lime wedge).

I think after this flight my virtual self will probably want to lay off the Chronos for a bit and probably sleep a day or so. That will give me time to plot out my next idea for this blog. Looks like it’s time for me to wrap this up and put this post to bed and get you to the really good part…the credits. I had a blast with this and until our paths cross again it’s onto the next conversation…

[#534] Should’ve Stripped Her Down

Could’ve stripped her down, and made the world a mess for her
Never thought she could be this way
Should’ve stripped her down, and ripped the world from under her
Never thought she could be this way

Cold, ♫Strip Her Down

Most of us have been there before and for those who haven’t you are the most fortunate of us all. Relationships can be hard all by themselves but when you add in toxicity and other factors it tends to wear on a person (it can affect both male and female in a variety of ways). When one ends as the result of betrayal a whole range of emotions can bubble up from the surface and that is the emotion that I was looking to capture in this photo.

The raw feeling of what it is like to have been burned by someone you trust is something that can bury you deep within yourself. For some as I said it has happened and even more than once, I can admit to being one of those people. You find it hard to trust anyone afterward or want to let them in but only if you allow it to; I can tell you that not letting it take you down is the best road to go because it was not your fault.

Lately I have been doing my best to get what I want to say visually in one shot and to me I feel that this is one of those times where I don’t have to do any other close-up shots and things like that; I wanted the background and the lighting to do the talking for me along with the shadows.

One of the latest releases from Modulus is a winter beanie which I imagine a lot of people are putting on now with autumn starting to take hold. This hat is a combination with a few locks of hair escaping on both sides of the beanie. It fits great out of the package but I would recommend that you alpha your ears and scalp because those stick out originally but is a quick solution. This is definitely a combo that you could wear quite a bit in your photos going forward for those of you who treat the virtual world as you do the real one as far as seasons are concerned.

The beanie has an excellent build and texture and the locks of hair popping out do as well just like all of Modulus’ releases and this combo is no different and well worth your attention to check it out.

Modulus Jackson Hair features:

  • 100% original mesh (Beanie) & 100% original alpha nex-gen hair mesh
  • HUD to control fabric color of beanie (6 colors in all) + integrated color picker
  • 5 Hair Color HUD each with integrated color picker for extra customization
  • 40 Color FATPACK option also available
  • Exclusively @ FaMESHed until October 27th

The October round of Pose Fair has been a good challenge for me with trying out different things and seeing where my creativity takes me; it has also been a lot of fun as well. Vanity Poses released both a male and female pose pack as well as one pose with a prop as well as a couples pose. I took a keen interest in the “Yo” pose pack because I liked how the poses were set and the hand movements were something I liked as well and narrowed it down to choosing something I thought worked well for my mood as it seems my av is fidgeting with his hands as if upset by something.

I am intending to also post a few more male centric poses from the fair as well as I have been dabbling in other types to start out but this was one that caught my eye and am very glad that the scene turned out as I wanted it to.

Vanity Poses Yo Pose Pack features:

  • Bento enabled poses (Bento viewer required to work properly)
  • 5 different poses to choose from
  • Mirrored versions of each pose also included
  • Exclusively @ Pose Fair until October 31st!

For the last of my featured items in the blog I have the “Jason Polo Shirt” in the Classic Pack by Cold-Ash. One thing I can say about a polo shirt is that it is casual like a dress shirt but also comfortable like a t-shirt. The fit of this product is awesome and for the mesh bodies that sizes are included for it has auto hide so you don’t have to spend all your time clicking out parts of your body which when you are dressing in a hurry it’s definitely a good feature to have.

It’s a good shirt to wear with either your favorite jeans or slacks and with an assortment of colors to choose from finding the right look is hardly even a thing.

Cold-Ash Jason Polo Shirt features:

  • 100% original mesh
  • FATPACK includes HUD with 8 color choices
  • Single versions also available
  • Fitted sizes for Belleza (Jake), Signature (Geralt & Gianni) and SLink Physique male bodies
  • Exclusilvely available now @ The Men’s Dept until October 30th

The opening of this blog had a bit of heaviness in it as the theme was as well and I tend to do these blogs as it is a part of the life cycle as it were. There are many topics people face everyday and even if I haven’t experienced some of them personally, there are a few I have or someone close to me that I know has. Every blog is a conversation about something and there are topics that do make more appearances than others as it depends on what kind of items I have to work with that fit the theme.

Either before or after I’ve taken the photo I choose the soundtrack for the blog as a whole and that is essentially the process in which I work on a consistent basis while rarely deviating from it. There are times when I feel it’s necessary when I’m looking for input or just need that extra push to make something I feel is lacking the final touch to carry it over.

I appreciate those who come to the site whether it is for the pics or the styles themselves (I’ve honestly grown from being a male fashion blog though it is still my main focus whenever possible). If anything that’s been written here has been felt by someone just passing through and they can empathize or even when there is a post that is uplifting and it warms their soul…I am here for all of that.

These are my conversations, these are some of your conversations but in reality they are all our conversations.

[#533] Love Bites

Love bites, love bleeds
It’s bringin’ me to my knees
Love lives, love dies
It’s no surprise

Def Leppard, ♫Love Bites

For the last couple years in October and sometimes other months too (but more importantly October) I do a scene where I am a vampire. These are some of my favorite works because of how much I enjoy the lore of vampires. The best part about it is each story or world that is created with them in it has different sets of rules in which a vampire lives and the worst part is in some they sparkle (sorry Twilight fans).

There is likely not a vampire movie or show that I haven’t seen (yes even Twilight sadly) and if I haven’t seen it then I make sure that I do just so that I can see how things are represented. I might even consider myself a vampire snob when it comes to how they are portrayed and what traits they have where it comes to things like garlic, holy water etc…

At the Pose Fair this year, Extra has 4 different pose sets (Two single and two couples) that are a part of a series called “Love Bites”. It is for that reason I chose to theme my scene around the classic song of the same name by 80’s/90’s legends Def Leppard. Before I start sidetracking the four sets are named “Come Into The Night”, “Dark Desires” (which is featured in this blog), “Do Not Disturb” and “Midnight Snack”. These poses are really creative and for any fan of vampires like me any one of these sets will really get your undead juices flowing.

Extra Dark Desires Pose features:

  • Bento enabled pose (Bento viewere required for proper use)
  • Includes coffin prop
  • Exclusive @ Pose Fair until October 31st (Halloween!)

One of my favorite vampire novels of all time is “Interview With The Vampire” and while the film adaptation was slightly over the top (and I mean that Tom Cruise and his ruffled shirt was). I thought that since SpectacledChic released a facsimile of his shirt from the movie and have named it “Lestat” after one of the two main characters in the book/film.

It was hard to decide what color to choose as there is the original white from the film but the red and black colors were very inviting but I decided to stick with the cannon and honor the film this way. I like how my look came together and it wasn’t what I originally put together and I will get to that in a moment but first some details about this shirt.

SpectacledChic Lestat Blouse features:

  • 100% original mesh
  • 6 colors to choose from
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake) and Signature (Gianni) male bodies
  • Exclusively @ Salem until October 31st! (Halloween!)

As I wrote about a moment ago my original look was slightly different than what you see now. The funny story behind it is that I ran out to an event to look at something that I thought might make my look better when out of the corner of my eye I saw a gentleman with almost the same exact look as I did (minus skin and maybe pants/shoes) and I liked the shirt too much to change that I decided to go with a different hair because at least that I knew that I didn’t have the look of someone else.

It is a good thing that recently Taketomi Club (which is a combination of both the Burley and Taketomi brands) released a new male hair called “Dorian” and if you are not familiar with the Taketomi Club I am more then happy to explain. There is a group fee to join (originally it was free but due to demand and many other factors the policy changed) but being a member of this group allows you to go to the Club room on the Designer Drive sim and there are Fatpacks of hair from each brand released at random with a starting price of 50 Lindens a pack and after two weeks the price goes up to 450 which is still a good bargain if you miss a release during it’s initial window.

With “Dorian” you get the entire color range and there are so many color HUDs to work with it’s mind blowing and you also get a styler HUD which allows you to choose which side you want your hair combed to. I felt this was too good of a deal to pass up and tell everyone about that might not know or may have forgotten about it.

Burley Dorian Hair FatPack features:

  • 100% original mesh (materials and regular version)
  • Multistyler HUD
  • 15 color HUDs included (240 colors total WOW!)
  • Available now for a limited time for 50L @ Taketomi Club

Before I wrap all this up I want to give a few honorable mentions for things that I’m not featuring due to being previous releases that are older than a month or stuff I’ve had for a while and just haven’t blogged. I’ll start with the CATWA Add-On teeth which helped make becoming a vampire for this photo much easier (and also made me look cooler) as well as the Le Form “Bloody Drops” applier which I found on the Marketplace (which is a lot of time a crap shoot trying to find exactly what you want).

This was a lot of fun for me to be able to play in the world of the creatures of the night and I likely will not do so again until next year (maybe make it a tradition like some of the others I have with the blog site?) Time for me to get back to the brainstorm board and figure out what’s next on my list of “to do’s”. Until our paths cross again, be well and treat others as you yourself want to be treated.

As for me it’s on to the next conversation…

[#532] And I Inherited My Health

And I swallow these capsules, to regain my grip.
And I swallowed myself sick. And I inherited my health.

36 Crazyfists, ♫Bloodwork

The whole month of October always inspires me to do strange photos (even though I do them all year round but they are extra fun in October). I’m trying my hand at being a neighborhood Jason as opposed to terrorizing a camp. Running around and scaring people left and right in some super short shorts with only a hockey mask and a machete. Seems like it might be a cold time with there being a chill in the air now but when your adrenaline is running on all cylinders it could be -10 degrees and you could be as warm as a Sherpa blanket.

Speaking of Machete’s, Attitude has a really sweet pose set (not sweet as in candy or relationship of course) at Pose Fair. This means that anyone who goes to the event can check out this set and mirror a psychopath in their photography. With 5 differing poses and an included machete (one for each hand to fit the pose that best goes with it) Halloween photography will get that much better as it certainly inspired me along with a visit to Missing Mile, a long standing rp sim that is so well put together an photogenic in a creepy way.

Attitude Machete Pose Pack features:

  • Bento enabled poses (Bento required viewer to use as intended)
  • Mesh machete’s included (left and right hand)
  • 5 different poses (static and poseball versions)
  • Exclusively @ Pose Fair until October 31st (Halloween!)

What psycho slasher isn’t caked with blood? You’re going to have to find me one that doesn’t because every single one I’ve ever seen on TV or on film is always bloody in some capacity which is why I am using a really good blood splatter applier from Revolver Tattoo called “Halloween Blood”. I really am a fan of how it helped bring my buff slasher together and helps show how much he got into his work.

Finding blood appliers can be hit and miss but this one was definitely scratched that itch and gave that extra added something to the look and also helped create the scene along with a good surrounding and also good lighting on top of that.

Revolver Tattoo Halloween Blood features:

  • Appliers for Belleza (Jake), Signature (Geralt and Gianni) and SLink Physique male bodies
  • Exclusively @ The Men Jail until October 28th

Lastly most everyone knows about The Arcade’s Halloween Pop-Up round that is going on right now but just in case you don’t…they have a special round with machines centering on the ooky and spooky. It began on the 6th of October and will last until the 31st of October (which as you know is Halloween woohoo) and so far it’s been a hit because many people who have been trying to get in to play the machines have had a hard time due to their only being one sim for this special event instead of three.

One of the machines that I thought was super cool was the Versov machine which has an assortment of masks, a few knives, a machete, some severed arms and two different pairs of shoes (one limited Bloody version and a non bloody FATPACK with an assortment of colors). I knew after I ended up with the bloody shoes and a mask that looks similar to the classic movie killer I just needed a few more things and a look would be complete.

I added the blood applier and threw on the “Gerard” shorts by LOB and wandered around the streets of Missing Mile to find a location and the rest as they say is history. There is a policy of not going into houses on the sim to photograph and I remain respectful to that so I stood right at the threshold of a house that looked like it was at a good spot and went to work.

Versov Maskov v.9 and FEAROV Bloody RARE Sneakers features:

  • 100% Original Mesh
  • 75L to play machine to potentially win
  • Resizeable via clicking item (Mask)
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake) and Signature (Gianni – Worn in pic)
  • Exclusively available @ The Arcade Halloween Pop Up Round until Oct. 31st

With the spirit of the month coursing through me I can assure you that there will definitely be more photos similar to this coming down the road and could be as soon as the very next blog post but check back just to see what I’ll have going on because I feel that I’m doing some of my best work as of late and am enjoying sharing it with whomever sees it.

Now it’s back to the brainstorming and putting together the next look but until our paths might cross again, onto the next conversation…

[#531] I’ll Carry You

But you gotta hold on
You gotta be strong
Right here with me if it all goes wrong
To keep you from harm
Away in my arms
Steer you away from the storm

David Cook, ♫Carry You

For some people Autumn has arrived and for others it is approaching (there is a bit of a latent summer happening in my part of the woods). I thought that I might take one of the poses that is a part of Pose Fair and put it to good use as I visited Netherwood once again. I wasn’t sure if the wonderful sim was going to be around much longer so I did not want to waste another moment going there and getting this really intimate moment photographed.

Ardent Poses has several couples poses as a part of Pose Fair and they are all equally wonderful but I chose “Don’t Let Go” because it gelled with the soundtrack I chose for this blog post. Maybe I’m not exactly carrying but I am holding my lady close so that must count for something right? Plus I feel my main visual shot has elements from the song in it as well.

Ardent Poses Don’t Let Go features:

  • 2 person bento pose (bento viewer required to use properly)
  • Two different versions included
  • Exclusively @ Pose Fair until October 31st

RKKN (a project from Keon Xenga of RK Poses Fame) has released a really great three-piece outfit at the September round of the Man Cave but as the event is now gearing up for October, I still wanted to wear this and knew this was the right setting to go with. I like the casual look of the shirt and how it tucks in nicely into the jeans along with the added waist shirt (one of my favorite accessories back in the grunge era).

I had to choose the colors that I thought suited me best because as much as I wanted to go crazy and get all the colors from each set, being a blogger on a budget made it not in the cards but the outfit I put together is not only me but I something I feel looks good on me and also in this photo.

One of the events I like because of the cultural aspect of it and also that fact that it has such cool things for sale, NEO Japan is something that everyone should check out even if you do it just to browse (but I can almost guarantee that you’ll leave with at least one thing); I’m also excited that Modulus the official hair of These Conversations Kill has a new release at the event.

“Ray” is an ear length hair with a small little spacing in the off center part of the forehead which with the provided mirroring hairs you can choose from left or right where you want the slight part to go. I decided to wear browns for this photo because it fit the autumn sort of feel of the scene because black did not feel right and blonde would get lost and possibly washed out.

All in all another solid effort on the part of Modulus to keep their hair game on point (as people say these days).

Modulus Ray Hair features:

  • 100% original Alpha Nex-Gen mesh
  • 5 different color HUDS with built in color picker for added customization
  • 40 color FATPACK also available
  • Exclusively @ NEO Japan until October 21st

Sometimes I run a bit long with my words if there’s a lot of featured items but with there only being two in this blog entry it will be an easy one to wrap up. If you get the chance to take a trip to Netherwood to explore I definitely implore you to do so as it is one of my favorite locations that I’ve shot plenty of scenes at during one point or another and with the scare of it possibly having shut down recently you never want to risk missing out on something wonderful.

Below is a taxi to Netherwood and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do and without any further hesitation here is the style credits. Until our paths cross once more, onto the next conversation…

[#530] I Want It Now!

’cause I want it now
I want it now
Give me your heart and your soul
And I’m breaking out
I’m breaking out
Last chance to lose control

Muse, ♫Hysteria♫

After going on a mass blogging binge this week I decided to recharge a little bit and take a day off yesterday and had considered doing so the whole weekend but I felt a bit jazzed and pumped (pun slightly intended) and chose to shoot this scene while it was still in my head. Maybe the idea as a whole doesn’t really gel completely because I don’t know anyone insane enough to bench press near steps but I’ve done some unconventional things in my days so I’m going to get away with it.

I was thinking of a tune that would work with this and remembered one of my old favorites that I’d play constantly when I was virtually jamming out on Rock Band. “Hysteria” by Muse has always been one of those songs that would get me hyped up because it has such a killer bass line and I always enjoyed that aspect of the song when I would play it on the game.

Working out even in the virtual world requires some high energy rock and I found it in this song and aided me along with the “Kaleb” pose set by Kokoro Poses. This set of poses is probably at the top 5 of any of the workout poses that I’ve ever had at my disposal and I didn’t have to make any adjustments to my shape to make it work and not having to add more effort into styling and setting up is a plus in my book.

One of the best things I like about Kokoro Poses is that they add an incentive with their full sets of poses by adding poses that you wouldn’t get if you purchased them as singles and really why would you want to buy just one pose especially if you change your mind mid photo and wish you had gotten one of the other poses? That way if you have the full pose pack you can just throw them in a stand and switch to what you want to work with.

Kokoro Poses Kaleb Pose Pack features:

  • Bento enabled poses (Bento viewer required for proper use)
  • Mesh weights included that fit each pose specificially
  • 5 poses + 2 full pack exclusives (7 in all)
  • Exclusively @ Hipster Men’s Event until October 16th

Track or sweat pants are in my opinion one of the best and most comfortable ways to exercise because you don’t have to worry about the pinch or bind that you might get with jeans (which to me is a no-no anyway). ExalteD has a new pair of pants at the upcoming round of The Men Jail that I was excited to throw on and use for this blog. I originally planned to wear a shirt as well with this but I thought best to show off those ab muscles and save a shirt from getting drenched with sweat and getting all smelly.

I love the color options for the “Nick” Pants because they are all colors that I would wear and instead of copping out and wearing black or white, I went with the light (or baby) blue color represent one of the alternate old school colors of my favorite baseball team who are a game away from moving on in the National League playoffs are are perceived as underdogs that won’t get far (but I believe!) There is a nice black with white piping on the side of the pants to give it added style.

ExalteD Nick Pants FATPACK features:

  • 100% mesh
  • 12 different colors to choose from (changeable via HUD)
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake) and Signature (Gianni) male mesh bodies
  • Exclusively @ The Men Jail starting October 8th and available until October 28th

For footwear I thought the best type of shoe to pair with the pants was a lo-top sneaker and one of my favorite brands, Native Urban’s latest release fit what I was looking for. The “Pryda” sneakers are constructed similar to the “Woodboat” pair that I blogged not too long ago but they are not exact. I think even the colors available in the full pack are different from one another.

These sneakers are casual for just about any kind of situation you might find yourself in where you are not required to dress in a fancy suit. Perfect for hanging out at the beach, going to a club, or just kicking it at your place.

However, for those of you with the Belleza (Jake) body you won’t be able to use these because they were made specifically for Signature products.

Native Urban Pryda Sneakers All Colors features:

  • 100% Mesh
  • 12 customizable parts with 21 colors (changeable via HUD)
  • Fitted for Signature (Geralt and Giann) mesh bodies
  • Exclusively @ Signature Event from October 1st – 20th

Lately I’ve been rolling through my list of hairs to blog from Modulus and this time out I am wearing the “Alfie” hair. This side combed hair is about chin length and can be paired with just about any type of hairbase (I chose a side faded one for this look). The best part is that you can choose between which side you have it combed to because Modulus now gives you both left and right sided versions. This has been a recent feature which I am absolutely grateful for and I’m glad that owner, Chucky Hollak, has given the option to us.

I’m sure I am not the only one who is ecstatic for this feature and I have a feeling that this is not even a fraction of what is to come so like all of you I wait for what is next in the already feature heavy Modulus Alpha Nex-Gen products line.

Modulus Alfie Hair features:

  • 100% Original Alpha Nex-Gen Mesh
  • Left or Right side parts included
  • 5 color HUDs with 8 standard colors
  • HUD contains integrated color picker for added customization
  • 40 color FATPACK also available
  • Exclusively @ Uber until October 22nd

Of course I cannot forget to mention the backdrop that helped put this scene together; which is one of the recent releases from Paparazzi. It is not brand new as it was a part of one of the rounds of Cosmopolitan but their bi-weekly rounds makes it difficult sometimes to get something from there and feature it while it is brand new.

The “Graff Tagged Door” backdrop gives the feel of it being a part of an abandoned building that squatters or curious people have snuck into (also read broken into) and used their spray cans to write different things on the doors and walls or whatever else they feel like. In my mind I picture myself being someone who has found a way to make it an abandoned gym and go there to lift weights or do some kind of parkour. The ideas of where that could go are almost limitless and because it is a virtual concept I won’t have to worry about the authorities!

Paparazzi Graff Tagged Door Backdrop features:

  • 100% original mesh
  • 4 different color schemes available (sold seperately)

This all seems like a mouthful so I’m going to finish this blog post up so you can get to the good part if you haven’t already and I will definitely be back with more goods from some of the latest events that have just started and also more from Pose Fair and The Men Jail. I look forward to getting back to work and until our paths cross again, onto the next conversation…

[#529] We Get Up Again

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
And you won’t fear death any longer

People will hate you, shake you, break you
Standing firm will make you
Unstoppable
Unstoppable

For The Fallen Dreams, ♫Unstoppable

One of the best things as a blogger is when an event like Pose Fair comes along and great products are in front of you and give you inspiration to photograph scenes. With the “Male Pose 8” pose set by FockStore I imagined myself in a scenario where I was in a firefight like you might see in a movie like John Wick or it’s sequel John Wick: Chapter 2. Wearing black is something that suits me I think and this gave me an opportunity to visit a previous location, Alien Asylum (where Travis Olbers and I did our co-op photo!)

With five poses to choose from (and I’ve used two from this set) you can tell a pretty good story with it. As I said above I was without styling myself exactly as John Wick, I feel that I would tell a story from the characters point of view that someone very close was taken from him and he makes it his mission to exact revenge on the perpetrators but along the way deals with the pain and anxiety that the toll of his mission is taking on him.

FockStore Male Pose 8 features:

  • 5 bento enabled poses (bento viewer required for intended use)
  • 3 mesh handguns that match 3 of the poses
  • Exclusively @ Pose Fair until October 31st (Halloween!)

::Fockstore: Pose Male 8

The Gabriel “Black Panther” set from the September round of The Arcade was something I enjoyed collecting (as I do a fair amount of their gacha items) but I didn’t really have an set idea for what I wanted to do with it but when the FockStore poses came into my virtual life I thought it would be perfect. I also managed to use just about each product (mostly in black except the gloves) and even wore the RARE Rollup Coat in my main photo, and took it off for my secondary shot.

The only thing I felt wouldn’t work in the scene were the actual panthers that are a part of the set and come in different poses. Maybe it might have added a little bit more of a dynamic but I didn’t feel it was necessary to have it be a part of what I was doing.

My secondary shot also includes a close up of my eyes which are from Go&See and are from The Dark Style Fair which is one of those events that appeal to part of me. The “Luxe” eyes look very cool which is one of several reasons why I made sure that you could see them as eyes are harder to see in any kind of photo other than an extreme closeup.

You can take my word for how cool these eyes are but seriously you should go take a walk on the dark side and check out the “Luxe” eyes and many of the other cool things you can take home from The Dark Style Fair.

Go&See Luxe Eyes features:

  • Appliers for CATWA and Genus Project (sold separately)
  • Mesh eyes also available
  • 10 different iris tones to choose from
  • Exclusively @ The Dark Style Fair until October 31st!

Now that we are in October which is my favorite month overall (even though the chillier weather) I’m working to get my mindset to where I can do more Halloween type scenes and I am sure many of the events that are coming up (and some that have already started such as Salem) will have items that will aid me in my mission.

With that said I am going to wrap this post up and will be back again soon with more from the grid. Until our paths cross again, onto the next conversation…
