So let the frenzy begin! It’s March 10th and you know what that means? That’s right…it’s time for Skin Fair. I’ve got plenty of coverage coming from this event and I’m excited to share with you.

Let’s start with Avi-Glam’s latest skin called “Kai”, it comes in 8 different tones (Ivory, Fair, Light, Honey, Latte, Tan, Dark, and Cocoa) with appliers for both [SIGNATURE] Gianni and TMP mesh body types. For the face it is only for CATWA mesh and bento heads.

I paired it with a recent release from Reach shapes. This specific shape is called “Asher” and you can get it at their main location as well as on their marketplace. I’m fast becoming a fan of this brand’s work and I’ve learned that you don’t have to follow their included style-cards to make yourself look great. I’ll be showing you their Skin Fair products in upcoming entries so keep an eye out for those.

I have a couple of items here from one of my fave clothiers on the grid, {COLD-ASH} that I am going to share with you. You might remember that I featured the RILEY straight leg jeans from the Signature Event a few posts back. Well now I am showing their boot cut version that is available also at the event until the 13th. It comes with the same denim color hud and also choices for changing the color of the belt or simply not having one at all. I might have mentioned that you also get three leg lengths: Low, Mid, and High depending on what type of boots you want to pair them up with.

At the current round of The Men’s Department, {COLD-ASH} has released the “MONTANA” shirt. It comes in two different color styles (Light and Classic) I would definitely recommend this item if you’re looking for a nice fitting shirt that you’d want to wear just about any day of the week. Not only does it have the plain color choices but it also has those colors with designated designs on them. It comes in the [SIGNATURE] Gianni size as well as Classic, SLink Physique, and TMP with a loose waist and slim waist option. You can’t afford not to pick this tee up, it definitely rocks.

Versus is back again with new items and new teams battling it out to see which brands are superior. I encourage you and anyone you know to check out this event as they have something for everyone and it’s fun to take part in the voting process and while I was there picked up some awesome new shoes to go with my look.

X.co has released the X-3 Yj sneakers which I have chosen the Black with White variation but there are a total of 6 different color styles to choose from. These are the kind of sneakers you could wear to just about any casual setting or even getting together with the fellas for a game of hoops. Sizes for this include [SIGNATURE] Gianni, SLink Physique, Standard, and TMP body styles.

Lastly I’d love to give mention to Chat Noir, I’m finding that their single mens Bento poses are really nicely done. I’ve used two different ones for this photo session which were once in events but have migrated to their main location for you to take a look at.

Now that you know just about all there is about this look, I am going to leave you to go shopping at any or all of the locations below in the credits. Enjoy your trip and I will be back again soon with another transmission for your viewing pleasure. Until then…stay stylish fellas!

[#345] You Got Caught In The Sun

What if I missed you
you got caught in the sun
What if I did something
never to be undone?

Caught In The Sun” –  Course Of Nature  ♫Listen

While I’m patiently waiting for nicer weather to return in the real world, I thought I might warm up my spirits and some of yours (those of you who live in cooler climates). I decided to take a trip to one of my favorite beach type sims, “Baja Norte” and catch a few rays. It was the perfect reason to pull out one of my finds from the Signature Event which is still running until the 13th of March. Time for some details about this little fun in the sun expedition.

As I said before, I was at the Signature Event where I picked up Exalted’s “Swim Trunks” I chose the v7 version because it seemed nice and tropical and would go well with being out on the water. Being that this item is being featured at the Signature Event, it only has a size for the [SIGNATURE] Gianni body. The fit is nice and you only have to hit a couple ticks on your alpha HUD and everything is perfect.

Being that this is the only new item that is an item of clothing I am wearing the “Bane” tattoo from ARISE that is now at The Chapter Four. It features an iconic leg sleeve featuring some of the best comic villians you can find. It has regular standard tattoo layers, Omega appliers, and a TMP installer for those of you with that style of mesh body.

I am also wearing a more recent release from FACADE called “Cruel Beauty” that was originally at the Love Interruption event on the Depraved shopping sim.

MESANGE has another great set of eyes for you that have just been released at this month’s round of We ❤ RP. The “Bering Eyes” come in 15 different iris colors and have the standard mesh eyes and also appliers for Omega enabled eyes. I thought that a bluish tone would fit well with this theme as well and the water would bring out the best in them.

For hair I went back and decided to give another look at the “Mose” hair by +elua+. I thought it fit perfect with the beach/surfer look that I had envisioned in my head and I think it fit particularly well for it. Also apart of my features that I did not credit due to unavailability is the -Valiant- “Stango” beard and hairbase. I’m hoping that the creator puts their Hair Fair ’16 releases out at their store but being that is primarily furniture and decoration items the chance is very slim which is a shame for those of you fellas that missed out on it and would like to still get it.

I am proud to announce that one of my sponsors, Reach Shapes, has released their Grayson shape. It is made for Catwa “Daniel” Bento heads and looks best with the [Bay Harbor] “Matt” Skin which you’ll find a link for down in the credits.

Time to go get back and finish up catching some sick waves before it’s time to head off on another adventure. Get ready for a wave of Skin Fair ’17 exclusives coming your way. I’m looking forward to giving you a look at them.

As always until the next time, stay stylish fellas!

[#344] I’ll Follow You Down

… down to where forever lies
Without a doubt I’m on your side
There’s no where else that I would rather be
I’m not about to compromise
Give you up to say goodbye
I’ll guide you through the deep
To keep you close to me

I’ll Follow You” –  Shinedown  ♫Listen

After a small little hiatus, I’m back with another look for you with new items from The Crossroads and The Chapter Four. I’ve also got a bento pose from Image Essentials that I enlisted the help of my friendly assistant, Bianca to help me with. She is wearing a new item from Creators Collection Box. Let’s get into the details everyone!

Go&See is back with a new skin available at the recently opened March round of The Crossroads. That’s right, the “Markus” skin is now available in both Pale and Tan tones. The package includes appliers for just about every body type so you shouldn’t have any issues pairing it up with your body setup. Also there’s a shape included that helps make the facial features look their best but you could also modify it yourself if you want to tweak it even further to your specifications.

With March just getting underway, The Chapter Four is also back for two weeks of retail spanning from clothing, gacha machines and more. MESANGE has released their “Cassandra Eyes” which feature 15 different tones and it comes with regular mesh eyes and also a HUD for Omega applier enabled eyes for those who have them. After much thought, the owner and creator, Jadis Ashland, has chosen to stop making appliers for Genesis Lab eyes as there is a major difference between the original mesh head eyes and the ones that are found in the bento version heads.

As I previously stated my assisant, Bianca, is wearing a cool baseball jersey/jeans combination from *KOPI* that is available presently at the Creators Collection Box event until March 18th. It comes in standard sizes but easily works with many of the mesh bodies with alphas enabled.

There are plenty more exciting things coming up around the horizon with The Men’s Department just opening and Skin Fair 2017 just about to begin not to mention some things from the already opened rounds of the Signature Event and also Men Only Monthly so stay tuned for those. I look forward to presenting great looks for you all.

Until the next time, stay stylish fellas!

I hope everyone’s doing well since the last entry. Things here are going the same which is always good, right? For this look I’ve got some new items from n21, Men Only Monthly, and the Signature Event that should wet your appetite. Let’s get into it right away, shall we?

lock&tuft has a new hair/hat combination you can purchase at the February/March round of n21 that just started back on the 20th. It’s called “ashton”. You can purchase various color packs or get the full pack with all of them. There are 3 different packs to choose from and all of them (full pack included) comes with a HUD for the hat, which has 9 different colors to choose from. It’s definitely not just a winter type hat, it has plenty of year round use so you don’t have to put it away soon when all of that cool weather moves out.

At the Signature Event you can pick up a pair of the new “Riley” jeans from {COLD-ASH}. These jeans come in six different denim colors and have a HUD for changing the belt color or hiding it altogether. The version I am wearing in this entry are the straight leg variety. You can also purchase the boot cut version in the same denim colors or as full packs. If you love wearing jeans then why not go for the gold and get them all! One more thing about the boot cut version, you get a choice of having the cut be high, mid, or low depending on the type of boot you want to wear. Sizes included for these jeans are: Classic, [SIGNATURE] Gianni, SLink Physique, and TMP for those of you with those mesh style bodies.

At Men Only Monthly, 7mad;Ravens has a new shirt for purchase. You can get the “Rags” shirt in five different styles and two different version of that style. It also has 3 different sizes for your avatar so you should be able to find just the right fit for your desired body choice but just in case try the demo if you are unsure; the best way you could go!

Lastly at the Modulus store you can pick up the Esteban skin which comes with both a brow base as well as a body shaper to make it look its very best; it comes in Bronze, Nude, Olive, and Tan. As with just about all of the skins made by Modulus, this has an option for just the face without brows while using your own. You can use the ones built in as an option and can also have facial hair by itself or all in one for a full look. Choose which one is best for you but there is truly no wrong way. For those of you who own a [SIGNATURE] Gianni Mesh Head, there is also a version of this skin as well at the Signature Event!

Now that you have all this information it’s time to leave you transportation to get to the stores and events currently featured in this post. As always…until next time, stay stylish fellas.
