[#334] Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?

Do you really want to make me cry?
Precious kisses words that burn me
Lovers never ask you why

Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?   Culture Club  ♫Listen

post334_01 post334_02

One of the things that I like about blogging is the thought and creativity that goes into it. From putting together items you might already have in your “closet” or from things you’ve recently picked up at an event right down to those that are provided by sponsoring Stores.

I always think of things and I jot them down as I generally base my photos off of a song or even a music video. Sometimes even things come to me on the fly which is one of the best things about the creative process. This posting is proof of that.

When I started putting my look together I started thinking to myself “Wow, I’m channeling Boy George a little with this”. Which is when I knew that I had to pick either a song from the Culture Club or by George himself (by George…slap your knee if you are old enough to get that one). Having been a part of the decade of the 80’s it kind of makes it sort of memorable for me. I’m a person who appreciates music in all forms because it takes creativity of one person or a group of people to make things come to life. Pop music was a major player in the 80’s as was Culture Club. It was something that was kind of fresh and new and that’s how I would like to think of myself as when it comes to making posts to this site.

Before I get too far off track, I want to tell you about some of the new releases featured in this entry starting with the Stabler Hair/Hat combination from lock&tuft. It is part of a Gacha machine but it is unisex so both the fellas and the gals can utilize it if you have extras or just want to give gifts. The hat portion comes with a HUD that gives you a choice of 3 different cloth choices (Contrast Wool, Wool, and Linen) in a variety of colors. There are also three different colors that you can change on the band of the hat. This is available right now at SaNaRae until the 18th of February.

The Crossroads returns with a new February round and a new look. They’ve done some renovating but you can still find some excellent items as you’ve come to expect from the event. I’ve got a double dose of goodness from G0&See. The “Kevin” skin comes in the usual tones from the store which include: Goth, Pale, Tan and Dark Tan. It was created with Catwa Bento and [GA.EG] in mind with an included shape, but it also comes with a shape for LOGO bodies as well.

The second item you can get from Go&See from The Crossroads are the “Garden” eyes. There are 10 tones included in the HUD but it is only for the CATWA mesh eyes. These eyes are quite different from my normal but I like the choices that are included.

For the outfit, this is one that I had tucked away for safe keeping, PRISM’s Leroy outfit. I chose the black version because that is what I feel suits me best. It has sizes for Standard Fitmesh, SLink Physique, and TMP with options for Materials or No Materials. I do have to warn you that I did try on the version for SLink (as that is the body I am wearing) but the shirt seemed to poke through the vest portion so I chose to use the Standard Fitmesh and it seemed to work a lot better. I love the look of it despite the slight fitting snafu.

Vista Animations released a pair of Bento hands not long ago and I was on the fence about getting them as right now they are only in the Beta stages but updates are free for life if you choose to purchase them. I had not heard any complaints through social media or on the grid so I broke down and bought them. I must admit they are pretty cool and they come with preset skin tones for Akeruka and Clef de Peau skins (which I wear pretty often) but also have the option if you choose to buy the Omega System Applier, any skin can be applied to it giving a seamless look. It comes with 12 preset hand poses (gestures). You can also find poses from various pose stores that have made animations that work with them. It is very neat some of the things you can do that you couldn’t previously with standard hands or their mesh successors. I’d encourage you to go check them out and they cost about $999. If you are not a SLink body fan, they should be releasing a [SIGNATURE] Gianni version as soon as sometime this week so stay tuned for that.

Alright now for the last thing, we have new shoes from Kauna in the form of the “Monk Strap” shoes that are currently for sale at this month’s FaMESHed round. It comes in standard and [SIGNATURE] Gianni sizes and has a HUD to control coloring for 6 different areas on the shoe, also the included built in socks, and also the buckles. They are definitely a must have as far as dress shoes go for the fellas. Everything is well made from the textures down to the functionality of the HUD.

I would like to take a quick moment to give a shout out to Adalynne Romano of {Picturesque Poses} for giving me a review copy of her “Paul” pose set. I think all of the poses in it are nicely done and I hope at some point to be able to get to use them all. She’s just started the venture but I have a feeling great things are going to come so keep an eye out for poses from her store. If you look below you’ll find a taxi ride to take you there!

Now that you have some new shopping ideas it’s time for me to continue on with my trip down memory lane and leave you with the credits. As always…until next time, keep it stylish fellas!
