[#359] So Let’s Run

Cause this is not enough
I won’t wait for them to cut me up
So give me all you’ve got
They’ll never stop until they see us fall…

Run” –  Bring Me The Horizon  ♫Listen

I haven’t done a truly role-play inspired or historical type entry for as long as I can remember. So I knew it was about time when a lot of the pieces all tied together from current events such as We Love RP and Square1.

For the longest time I’ve been a fan of all things Scottish due to my love for the Highlander films and television series. You may recall in very early entries that I paid homage to them as well. So when I saw the Noble Creations “The Outlander Kilt” I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. It comes with a HUD that gives you three different cloth color choices. Yellow, Red, and Black. There is also a bag accessory (which I did not use for this photo session) that comes in Brown, Green, and Black. Sizes included in the box are for Aesthetic, [SIGNATURE] Gianni, Standard S-L, and TMP.

Also from the We Love RP event there are one of three new sets of eyes from MESANGE. This time I am wearing the “Thetis Eyes”. With 15 different color options you are bound to find a tone you like. I found #15 to be a very stunning green which I knew would fit perfectly with my Highland theme.

I’d like to take a moment to recommend the beard that I am wearing in this look. It’s made by Yuth and is called the Cyrus. I knew that I was going to like this item based on the ad for it that I originally saw on the marketplace. I did however go to their in-world location to make my purchase and went with the whole set. While it might be a little pricey at $1500L the amount of colors per HUD that you get can’t be beat; it is still a value nonetheless. I was able to size it just right and the included omega appliers made it seamless on my hardened warrior’s face.

At one of the previous rounds of We Love RP, I featured a hair from a brand named VoluptasVituralis. There were two hairs that I purchased and this is the second of those two. I bought the full pack for “Aranai” as well because I knew that I could potentially use it for several projects in the future. I really like the vivid textures on this hair, especially on the ginger tone I used.

How could I also forget that there is a new round of The Men’s Department going on? That’s right they are back with all new clothing, skins, furniture, pose props and more for you to get your hands on. Speaking of skins, I am wearing the “SHAWN” skin from Stray Dog in the Peach tone. It comes with an two different HUDS to use if you want to go with the eyebrows that were created with the skin and one for you to use your own. What also made this a great choice to use for this photo set is that there is a version that is a bit roughed up. What celtic warrior comes out of battle unscathed? Yeah, I thought so myself. Just in case you were wondering the package does include a brow shaper and body shape as well unless you have one of your own that suits you better.

Last but certainly not least is one of the reasons this visual concept came about. Image Essentials released the “RAGNAR” Bento pose set at the Square1 event. This event seems to be a newer one because I don’t recall seeing it before but this item certainly is worth going to check out if you are into fantasy themed photography. It comes with 5 different poses along with mirror poses as well as two different battle axes. Makes the warrior look come full circle I think and was a huge inspiration when I put this together. A big shout to Kay Weston for bringing this item to us all.

I think I have covered just about everything that I can think of so it is that time to wrap up this entry. I enjoyed working on this project and I hope you’ve enjoyed viewing it just the same. Until the next time, stay stylish fellas! Onto the credits!!!

[#358] I Stand Alone

Help me decide if my fire will burn out
Before you can breathe
Breathe into me…

I Stand Alone  Godsmack  ♫Listen

I‘m back again with more goodies for you to behold and events to run to look at what’s new and good in fashion+ on the grid of SL. It’s a new week and the first week in a new month so you know what the means… The Men’s Department is back with a new round of great items and let me tell you from the little walk-through I had, it definitely does not disappoint.

While I’m on the topic of TMD, Modulus has a new offering that you can feast your eyes on called “Rafa”. 6 tones are available to choose from and like with most of the new offerings from the M BARE line, it has the options for browless/brows and for clean/facial hair or the combination of brows and facial hair. I really like that the eyebrow shaper and body shape are included as it really does the skin justice to know what the creator had in his mind for what “Rafa” should look like out in the world. Of course you can use whatever shape you think is best or modify the provided one as well.

At the main location of Go&See, you will find another of the new items I have in this entry. The “Mermaid” eyes com in 10 tones and when you think of the name you might think it could be very feminine but let me assure you, a good portion of the tones included in this package are unisex. I intend to showcase more in future entries because I like what the brand did with this release. It can be used easily for fantasy or even for regular everyday. That’s how versatile these eyes are. Also they are only for Catwa eyes for anyone that has them separately or the ones included with the head of their choice.

I’ve also got something for you from Men Only Monthly! NoEdition has the “Military Cargos” available right now at the event until the 15th of April. It comes with an included HUD where you can change the fabric of the pants as well as the metal and fabric on the belt. It only comes in standard sizes which is one of the only downsides I have to say about this product. I would have liked to have seen either Fitmesh or at least sizes for some of the mesh bodies. I liked these so much though that I made the best of it that I could.

There is a new #selfie backdrop Gacha from RAMA that is currently going on at The Gacha Guardians event. After every 20 plays you get a bonus backdrop from the machine but you need to act now because once the event is over at the end of the month the special prizes will be gone forever.

I believe it is now that time in the entry to close things up now that you know what items are new and where to get them. Also in the credits below you’ll be able to see what other items were used here and take the taxi’s to get to each store or event. As always it has been my pleasure and until the next time, stay stylish fellas!

[#357] Your Future Says Run

No you can’t go on
No you can’t even talk
Your future says run
But you can’t even walk

Future Says Run” –  Tonic  ♫Listen

On the 31st of March, These Conversations Kill had it’s 3rd Birthday/Anniversary. While I intended to have this finished by then it just wasn’t possible due to outside obligations. Since I started this little project I’ve come up with 357 different concepts and looks for the readers to do with what they choose. Take what they like or don’t like and create a style or outfit and make it their own.

Time seems to go by in a flash (pun intended) and I cannot express the amount of joy and fun that this has brought me over these past three years. What started out as an idea to make sure that a reader would be able to find the items they wanted if they were available and the exact location to get them was the intention behind what you see here today. I never want someone to feel like I did when I had seen an item on a male fashion blog but there was nothing stating where I could go to get it. Even after contacting the person who authored the blog and getting very little information, it was that exact moment I wanted to strive to produce something better and something more informative.

Thank you to everyone who has followed, liked, faved, and everything else in between. The support that I’ve been given by numerous fellow bloggers who have become great friends and to those that are not colleagues that just enjoy what I do. It all means more than I could ever truly put into words.

Also to the sponsors who have put their faith in this little space on the web to showcase their work because I value what they do. It goes hand in hand.

If you are interested in getting the mesh Flash avatar, you can grab it from 3DMeshiah on the Marketplace. I chose not to post it in the full credits because it is not the central focus of this particular entry.

Stray Dog has slowly become a very strong presence as a skin maker, becoming one of my favorites along with designers like Modulus, Clef de Peau, and even Tableau Vivant. At this current round of ULTRA you can get the Seb skin in three different tones. I chose the Pearl tone as it was my favorite of the three. In the applier HUD it comes with the regular facial skin and also freckles.

Mesange is participating in the Mens Only Hunt 9 that just started on the 1st of April and runs until 30th. There are 5 different colors to choose from as it is a Mini-Pack that is put altogether. I chose the color that looked similar to a certain Scarlet Speedster’s look like before he’s about to take off.

Also the subway background is one I had been eyeing since it became available at Kustom9 so I finally made use of it and really like how detailed it is. It made the idea I was going for a bit easier to work with. I’m not familiar with the brand ninety but if they continue to make products such as this, I will definitely be featuring them more. They are on my radar.

[high v.] is one of those stores that a pop culture nerd enjoys and that is where I found the comic inspired hooded sweatshirts. There are 9 different designs you can choose from and you can tell by the theme of this entry what mine was. Originally this product made it’s debut at an event called Level Up but I don’t recall there being much press or hoopla about it. I found out about them from the ad posted on Flickr by the store itself so I was able to get them there.

The NEOPRIME TRAINERS were previously available at the February/March round of Uber but they should be appearing soon at the Main location any time now. I picked up the full pack because of all the customization options that are available. Millions of combinations can be made from the bevy of colors you are able to pick from. As you can see I went with Red/Yellow this time but I have a feeling this will definitely be featured again in another capacity as they work well with jeans.

Lastly, I’d like to give mention to the XXY “Manly” pose pack that you can grab right now at the current round of Men Only Monthly. I really like their poses though the only small complain I have and it isn’t a huge one is that they only package pose balls. If you want to try and use them on a sim where you are not aloud to place items, you have to manually take them out before you go. As I said it’s not a big deal overall but if Xerys manages to read this little space, I’m sure not only myself but the readers would love for you to include the static poses in the package as well.

I’m going to wrap up this entry up and leave you with the credits and taxi’s so that you can go check out these stores and events and create a great outfit like this one or one of your own. Until next time, stay stylish fellas.
