[#376] Burn, Burn, Burn

And my mother told me, “Son let it be”
Sold my soul to the calling
Sold my soul to a sweet melody
Now I’m gone, now I’m gone, now I’m gone

Fire” –  Barns Courtney  ♫Listen


After a small little break I’m back with some great new items from some of the designers and events that you gentleman all know and love. With that I’m going to get right into going over what went into this look so let’s get started shall we?

On the 20th of May a new fully stocked round of Men Only Monthly began and let me say it was a pretty good one for me personally. I feel like I went on a mad shopping spree when I went in there. There are several things from the event that went into this look which makes me happy because I don’t always get to post everything I buy at a certain event unless it’s a review copy or I have more alotted personal time so when I am able to feature the things I purchase it feels like a personal win.

The first item item for the look is the “Haunting” hair from Stealthic. This relatively new brand has had back to back hair items at the event and they have both been very well made from the textures used to the ability to style the hair in different ways which is starting to become a new trend on the grid and I certainly do not dislike it. There is also a hairbase that you can purchase in addition but other hairbases do work (as I used a different one in this look that is a part of the No. Nuel Skin)

Also from the event, FLI. released a canvas type skater shoe simply called “Canvas”. Of course by now you know that I have a soft spot for shoes like this and this pair is most certainly no exception. It is modeled after a very popular brand of shoe of which in the real world I own a pair of which is even cooler that I can also wear them virtually. The only downfall about this product is that it is only for standard sized avatars and does not include a shoe shape which normally would not help someone with a mesh body like myself. With a little bit of resizing, I managed to make this work perfectly with my Gianni body but I’m not sure how well it will work with others as I have not tested it. I do hope in the future that FLI. decides to step up a little further by making shoes for the different mesh bodies that are out there. I think that it would certainly take the brand to even further heights.

Kinky is back with another round and while normally this kind of event is not my style, there are items that do interest me that are not exactly part of the theme of the event. Stray Dog, one of my favorite skin designers (and a lot of other people as well) have the “Hunter” skin for sale. Coming in three different tones it is compatible with the Catwa family of heads. There are two seperate HUDs included, one of which is a browless version. Inside these HUDs are several different options. There is the regular skin, a version that makes you look angry, and also freckles. You can also add kiss marks to your face as well if you are out and about being lascivious. All in all, I think this is another great addition to the skin line. Also for those of you who may not know, you can get the new body appliers (right now strictly for Gianni) at the Stray Dog flagship store.

Representing The Men’s Department in this entry are the “Blake” jeans by PARKER. These rolled cuff jeans work well with the canvas shoes that I am wearing and also have that ripped look that I seem to employ quite often in some of my outfits. There are 6 different denim types you can choose from if you make a single purchase, however, for those those who buy the full pack there are two extra denim choices as an added bonus. These jeans come in sizes for Gianni, SLink Physique, and TMP mesh bodies.

The Gabriel “Zipped” Jacket was an item first featured at last months Uber event. It is one of those cases where I just was not able to put this look together (I didn’t have the shoes at the time) before the event ended. I really like how this item fits and seamlessly works with the jeans without any clipping. You get two versions with this product, one with a shirt and one without. The one thing I say this item lacks is the ability to change the shirt color and while white is very neutral and versatile, it is just nice to be able to have options in case you have a pair of jeans or pants of a certain color and you want to match them better. Overall this is a really great product and very highly recommended.

Lastly, Nivaro recently released a few new beard appliers in their store. I am wearing the “rugged” beard style which comes with three different HUDs (for Catwa, Omega, and Signature respectively). Within each of these are five different colors: White (which is tintable to whatever color you wish), Black, Bornw, Blonde, and Red. There is also a button that you can press if you want to remove it without having to go through any extra steps to take it off when you want to go clean shaven or want to wear a different style. One of the things I like best about this is it gelled well with the hairbase I am using, as it is one of my peeves when your hair and beard do not connect and leave a strange looking gap between them. Nivaro has caught my eye and I’ll definitely be returning there to look at other styles.

On that note I believe it is time to stop rambling and let you get to what you love most: shopping. Now that you’ve been given the skinny on what went into this look I will leave you all with the full style credits below including what I didn’t cover in-depth. As always, keep it stylsh fellas and we’ll see you next time out!

[#375] 6th Avenue Heartache

And the same black line that was drawn on you
was drawn on me
And now it’s drawn me in…

6th Avenue Heartache” –  The Wallflowers (ft. Adam Duritz)  ♫Listen

A lot of bloggers out there tend to stick with only the current and new items in their entries but sometimes I like to mix some of the new items from current events to some of my more favorite items within a certain time range or from a certain brand that I know is relevant and still kicking butt on the fashion scene. One of those that comes to mind is [Deadwool]. In my last posting I wore the “Strider” boots because it fit with what I was working with. For this look I combined some of my new items with the “Pleated” Jeans. I’ve featured them a few times but that is the brilliance of purchasing the full packs because you are not always wearing the same one each time out.

One of my favorite brands, Modulus, has two new offerings at the freshly restocked “Limit8” event. For those of you who are unfamiliar with it, it is full of different designers and items with at least one item with a limited amount of product to sell and once it’s sold out it will no longer be sold again in that form. There are two items from Modulus being sold and I’ll start with the “Tate” Hair. It’s a hair that is in between the short to medium range and is combed over to the right side with a little bit of a floaty look. This item is not one of the limited items but it goes perfectly with the “David” hairbase that is also being sold and is the limited edition item for the event of which only 100 copies will be sold. I would take a trip there as soon as you can to take a look at this item because I have no doubt it will go fast.

Also recently re-opened is the Men Only Monthly event, which happens to be one of the ones I look forward to each 20th day of the month. I have two different items from it but we’ll start first with the review copy of the “Andrej” skin from Avi-Glam. I like the youthful look that this skin provides and goes excellent with the “Dante” Shape that is also available at M.O.M. Avi-Glam has also relaunched their body skins which “Andrej” is the first release to get the treatment of new and updated skin tones. There are 8 tones to choose from (Ivory, Fair, Light, Honey, Latte, Tan, Dark, and Cocoa) and the v2 body appliers which you can find at their main location have an option for soft or athletic. Head over to Men Only Monthly and grab some demos because you might just like what you see and want to have it for yourself.

One of my many weaknesses when it comes to shopping (other than skins or gacha machines) is shoes. If it is made by one of my favorite designers there’s more than likely a chance that I’m going to buy it and buy a full pack at that. Kustom9 certainly pulled me in when I saw the “TCHEKOV” Sneakers. These shoes are based off one of the popular brands of low top shoes that I’m not going to name specifically but can tell you that it is named after an animal. The color choice I went with this time is the Suede Cream as it is something that I might not normally go with but I went out of my comfort zone of monotone type colors and felt this fit pretty well with the rest of the outfit. Inside the package you will find sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, SLink and TMP for the gals respectively) and Gianni, SLink, and TMP (for the fellas) as well as Unrigged for both.

For the pose and backdrop of this scene, I’m utilizing the Wetcat & Lemon’s “Alley” backdrop which you can find at FaMESHed until the end of the month. This set can be purchased with or without the animations if you decide that you would prefer to use your own. The one thing that bothered me about this is that to try and use my own lightning I had to edit the build and find the various light sources within it but it is a small price to pay really for a well put together backdrop.

Now that I’ve gone through just about everything there is to know about this look, I’ll leave you with the complete credits of what I am wearing and where to find it either by store or by event. Thank you for taking a look and as always until next time, stay stylish fellas!

[#374] So Say Hello To Heaven

Chris Cornell
1964-2017

I never wanted to write these words down for you
With the pages of phrases of all the things we’ll never do.

Say Hello 2 Heaven” –  Temple Of The Dog  ♫Listen

After a few days of reflection and introspection, I decided that I was going to show my appreciation for a musician who has been a part of my life for over 20 years. From the beginning when I first heard “Outshined” by Soundgarden I knew there was something special about the bands vocalist, Chris Cornell. This past Wednesday he left the world and left a lot of questions behind. I’m not going to write about the circumstances behind it, I’m only going to think fondly back on the time and the music that his legacy leaves behind. I put together a look that reminds me of a time when I was first introduced to the grunge/alternative scene that is so close to my heart and take me back to some simpler times.

It was not just the times with Soundgarden that I am fond of but that is where my appreciation began. I think one of the best projects that Chris was a part of was Temple of The Dog album which he teamed up with what would become future members of another legendary grunge group, Pearl Jam (who were the remnants of a group I am about to mention). They got together and made a record as a tribute to their fallen friend, Andrew Wood, who had been the vocalist for the Seattle based group called Mother Love Bone. Andrew had passed away due to an overdose and much like people today are mourning Chris, the music scene felt the ripple of his passing. The theme in today’s look is from the Temple of The Dog album which some 25 years later is just as fitting for Andrew as it is now for Chris. There are many musicians from many different eras but very few of them had the kind of voice, Chris Cornell did and that is why he will truly be missed by his family, friends, and fans all over the world. Thank you for the music.

There are very few new items in this look except for the MESANGE exclusive from We Love RP in the form of the “Sheba Eyes” there are 15 different iris tones to choose from and are also available a bundle together, complete with a HUD that will work with the included mesh eyes as well as Omega Applier friendly ones such as Catwa.

The other new item is from CDC (or Chris Dunkelheit Creations) which is a maker of shapes, skins, beards and other fine products. What I am wearing from them here is the No. 57 beard which reminds me of the early 90’s mustache and goatee that Chris wore and also could be seen in the brief cameo of his in the movie, “Singles”.

Once again I am wearing the Belleza “Jake” mesh body and I am finding the more that I am using it, the more I am really liking it and cannot wait for more products to be released exclusively for it and I know that they will be pouring in to stores and events in the near future.

Fitting my grunge theme are the “Clay” dirty jeans from Legal Insanity. These disheveled cut off shorts with fraying bottoms come complete with a shirt wrapped around them. The store also sells different texture appliers for the shirt which I purchased the TARTAN v.1 extra because I really liked how the flannel inspired the look even more. With the use of Alpha Sliders, these shorts fit perfectly with the standard sizes provided in the package.

For footwear,  I am wearing the [Deadwool] “Strider” boots which I knew were absolutely perfect in completing this 90’s inspired grunge look.

Lastly for honorable mention in this post is the chair that is used in the scene, it is the “Lexington Chair” from {Q-Essentials}. It has poses included in it but the setting I envisioned in my head was to be sitting on the floor so I did not use them. It is a great decor item to add to your collection if you are looking for new furniture. There is also a Sofa available as well. The pose I used is from <K&S> Poses and is from the “No Problem” set # 2. These are mostly sitting or crouching poses for those who are looking to set up a scene without furniture or just want to be posed on the floor.

That is all there is to know about what went into the styling of this post and I hope you enjoyed this tribute as much as I did creating it. I thank any of you who read, view, like, comment, or fave this on social media. I appreciate it all and I hope that I’m able to express that to you in some form one day. Until next time, as always…stay stylish fellas!

[#373] But I Won’t Let This Build Up Inside Of Me

A catch in my throat choke
Torn into pieces
I won’t, no
I don’t wanna be this…

Vermillion Pt. 2 (Bloodstone Mix)” –  Slipknot  ♫Listen

It has finally arrived, the moment many fellas on the grid have been waiting for and now it is here. This past weekend Belleza released their first ever male mesh body: Jake. This omega friendly body could be just the thing everyone needs. With a easy to use HUD and millions of alpha cuts to ensure clothing fits just perfectly, it is hard to go wrong with this body. The package comes with an applier for the Catwa Daniel head to match the included skins tones within the HUD. There is even a spot in the HUD where you can store saved body appliers that you love so you don’t have to dig into your inventory to find it and put it on. While I have not tested tattoos on it yet, I have tried several different skins using the Omega Applier system from Love n Lust. Please note that at the time of writing, the kit for Belleza is located in the women’s section of the Omega store.

This body has a lot to offer and takes things that other bodies have or have lacked and made this possibly one of the best, along with the [SIGNATURE] Gianni model. I can surely see myself switching between these two depending on the types of products that get released. If you have not had the chance, take a stroll to the Belleza store and grab a demo and see for yourself how versatile this product is.

Sometimes I like doing fantasy or horror themed shoots and I think this could easily file under that category. I managed to find quite a few things at the Memento Mori event that is currently taking place until the 27th of May. It is where I found both the “Blood Drink” and “Blood Drainer” to help aid with my vampiric activities. The Drink comes with several ways to display it. As you can see in the photos there is a mouth version, also in the package is a holdable version for both left and right handed people.

Finding eyes to match the overall feel of this look was relatively easy. I received a review copy of the “Undead Eyes” from Go&See that is currently available for a little bit longer at The Dark Style Fair 4. There are 10 different horror centric iris choices to choose from and are compatible with Catwa eyes only. If you play a vampire, zombie, or any type of creature in role-play settings then I urge you to give these a try. There is literally nothing to lose by doing so!

The skin I am wearing is a specialty skin by the brand ^^Swallow^^, it is simply called “Bloody” and comes in just the ivory tone which is one of their palest complected skins that they offer. It has four applier options with two different styles. The regular skin with brows (and one without) as well as a blood splattered version with brows (and without).

I am wearing a recently released product from [BODY FACTORY] which is called “Destruction”. These leather type jeans come in Standard Sizing but I find with the alpha cuts on the Belleza body they fit perfectly without any type of clipping or needing to use what is called “post production magic”. If I would have to describe this product it would be like a cross between leather jeans and cargo pants with some chords to make it different from other items you see out on the market.

Honorable mentions for this look are the “Tommy” hair from Exile and also the “Dylan” pose pack from XXY Poses. I’ve also included the look of my lovely assistant below in the credits as well for those of you gals who might be interested as well.

I’ll be back again soon with another inspired look for you to feast your eyes on but until then as always, keep it stylish fellas and for you gals keep it classy!

Another new week is about to start and I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend. Plenty of things to try and cover this week so looks like I better get going on it so that all of you are in the know! Also welcome back to another blog post and for those of you that are first time readers welcome, I hope you check out some of the other recent entries and find something that appeals to you.

When Exile had their hair sale last month before their “reboot” of the main location, I picked up a small handful of new hairs and I’m finally getting around to featuring one of them in look. I thought with the theme I used for this entry that it was only fitting to use the “Machinehead” hair. It’s a nice messy look that is not too long nor too short at the same time.

I was finding it hard to find a skin that I could use with the [SIGNATURE] Gianni head (which is now updated to Bento for those of you who did not know). At the Signature Event, Clef de Peau has “Calvin” for sale. I have always been a fan of CdP but I’m reluctant to say that I prefer their skins on the Catwa head. Just because I feel that the Gianni head even now that it is bento compatible is shaped very strangely even with the included shape. I’m wearing T2, which is my usual go to with the CdP brand.

OUTLIER is also a contributor to this round of the Signature Event. They have the “Rebel” jeans which I am wearing the “Stone” version of them. I love the texture of the denim on these and there is also boxer shorts built in as well to make them look even more realistic if you are not wearing a shirt. The only size included in the product is the Gianni/Fitmesh version so for those of you that do not have a Gianni body they will not work for you, which is why I always encourage you to try the demos of all clothing before making a purchase. I’ve learned in the past from being hasty and buying things before trying them.

MESANGE has two new exclusive eyes available at We Love RP; for this look I am wearing the “Ashtar Eyes” which have 15 different iris textures you can pick from. Normally with my Catwa head I just use the eyes that come with it but with the Gianni head not providing eyes with theirs I had to use the included mesh eyeballs which needed a slight bit of adjusting.

You know I couldn’t leave out an item from TMD, which it seems with their anniversary round going on this month there have been a lot of goodies being featured here from the event. I haven’t really played any of the Gacha machines as I’ve been trying to lay off of them for the time being. With that said, I have a great shirt in this look from {Cold-Ash} and it is the “REECE” henley shirt. I’ve been graced with a review copy of the “Classic Pack”. This slightly unbuttoned short sleeve is great for casual wear and for summer wear. There are two different versions in the pack (regular and slim waist) for the Fitmesh, Gianni, and TMP bodies; there is only one size for the SLink Physique.

Returning in this look from previous blogs are the “LIFTOFF TRAINERS” from Vale Koer and also the pose I used was from the set “Kai” by Image Essentials.

I look forward to bringing you coverage of the new Belleza male mesh body “Jake” in the very near future now that it has been released to the public. I also have some things from a few other events that I’m just seriously excited to show you as well.

Now that you know just about everything that went into making this entry possible, I encourage you to look down below to find the taxis for locations of the stores/events that are featured in this look as well as the location where the photos were taken. Until the next time as always, stay stylish fellas!

[#371] But The Gun Still Rattles…

And I don’t want a never ending life
I just want to be alive while I’m here
And I don’t want to see another night
Lost inside a lonely life while I’m here

One of the things I enjoy is doing photo shoots on location. It is one of those things where the ambience of the chosen place can be the difference between a good photo and a great photo. Sometimes for whatever reason sims close and leave a giant whole in the blogger photo taking experience. When I heard the news that Ironwood Hills was closing (where I’ve taken quite a few photos in the past) I knew it would create a void for me personally. However, not too long after the announcement they had found a way to remain open but they were going to be doing some things around the land. Ironwood Hills is now back open to the public and has been for a while but this is my first time returning and I was quite happy to visit there and find a nice spot to snap at.

As you might have seen in previous blog entries, TMD is chock full of great items but for me I’ve managed to purchase quite a few skins from the event. For this look I’m wearing the “Sam” skin from Clef de Peau. It is for the Catwa Head family which right now only consists of Daniel but coming soon will be the Stanley BENTO mesh head on the 15th of this month at the ULTRA event. The package includes the applier as well as the eyebrow shape and two body shapes (one for Daniel and one for the new Stanley). Also if you are the owner of the Absfab body appliers for Gianni, you can go to the CdP main location and pick up an updated version with the “tight” body applier.

The facial hair I’m wearing comes from the [GA.EG] brand and can be found at their main store. “Razor Blade” is just as it’s described, it’s a chin strap style beard with sharp points on both sides of the jaw and one right in the middle of the chin with a small bit of upper lip hair. The version I have is compatible with omega applier enabled products.

As I may have mentioned previously, Reach has three different items for you at The Dark Style Fair 4. In addition to the two shapes for sale, they have a tattoo called “Steam Machine” which has various images for you to enhance your avatars epidermis. At first I thought by the name it would be more of a tattoo in the “steampunk” genre but with what I know of it, which I will admit is very little, I do not believe there is a correlation. The product includes two different applier HUDS: one for [SIGNATURE] Gianni and one simply for any Omega applier enabled bodies.

For my hair in this look I decided to get a little creative after I saw an ad for the Beausy standard group gift, which is the “Delilah” hair with a HUD for naturals tone. While yes this may be a hair that was created for females in mind, it can easily be worked to work for us fellas as well. There’s nothing lost heading to the store and just joining the group for free and picking it up. It’s a nice shoulder length hair that really could be almost though of as unisex.

Some time has passed since I did a “Marketplace pick” so let’s welcome that back for this post. When I was scouring for some bento poses which still are not as common as they should be, I stumbled upon the work of Reve Obscura. Not only are the poses in her store well done but they are quite affordable where you might want to look at what else is being offered and stock up! I am using the “Shots” pose which some might be familiar with and I’m not embarrassed to admit this is most commonly associated with professional wrestler Jeff Hardy.; in a way is who I styled my look after for this photo session.

Honorable mentions for this look are the returning “Destruction” jeans by L&B Swear as well as the “Ardor Eyes” by Avi-Glam.

Now that you know just about everything that went into this look you can take transportation to the stores and events featured here and while you are at it, go take a look at Ironwood Hills. It is a sight to behold and if you are someone who likes to role-play there are always people around that might be interested in participating. Thanks again for checking in and I’ll see you again. Until next time as always, stay stylish fellas!

[#370] I’m Sexy And I Know It

When I walk in the spot this is what I see
Everybody stops and they staring at me

Sexy And I Know It” –  LMFAO  ♫Listen

It’s been a while since I have done an entry that wasn’t an emotionally charged theme and just totally let loose and show some of my more humorous side. I like to try and do all sorts of different things with the medium that I work with. I also like to show that I can do funny or poke fun at myself as well to show that I’m not so tightly wound. This definitely fits that category and I did it with the help of items that can be found at The Dark Style Fair 4, The Men’s Department, Men Only Monthly and The Avenue.

I may not have mentioned it in previous posts but it is the 5th anniversary of The Men’s Department and I remember being at the very first one even though I was not very active in-world at the time I wanted to check out what all the hoopla was about. I was impressed then and I’ve continued to stay that way throughout the years and supporting the event as best as I could through whatever means possible. I’ve always found something in every round since the beginning and it makes me glad to know that those behind the event keep striving to bring males the items and designers we sorely need to stay stylish, so thank you TMD for making my job a smidge easier.

While I am on the topic of TMD, my item for this look is the “SEAN” skin by STRAY DOG. I knew the moment I saw the advertisement on Flickr that I would need to feature this somehow. The face can show a hint of mischief if using the right animation on the CATWA Daniel HUD. It’s one of those faces that has that air of confidence bordering on cocky. It comes with a HUD that you can choose whether or not you want to have freckles, there is an applier for both. It also comes with an eyebrow and body shape unless you have one of your own that you prefer to use. I experiment with this kind of thing quite often but I chose to use the one included and the look truly appealed to me.

Tattoos are not something I do a lot of with my looks as most of my styles have longer sleeves or just cover up most of the art which renders it meaningless of what it’s purpose is, which is to be displayed. It’s also not because I dislike tattoos as that is not the case as I am the proud owner of ink in the real world. With that said, there are about three to four different tattoo creators that I enjoy products from, ISUKA is no exception. For this look I am featuring the “Gabriel” tattoo which has a very detailed scene which comprises of a chest plate and full sleeves combination. The product contains legacy tattoos as well as appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Gianni, Omega, and TMP with three different opacity choices (Fresh, Normal, and Faded). It is a very well done tattoo and I encourage you to at least give it and the ISUKA brand a look if you are fan of ink.

Yack is a brand that before finding them at The Avenue I had never heard of. The mens boxers they have for sale (two different texture versions) are very nicely done and if you are the kind of person that enjoys relaxing around in just that well then this product will appeal to you. I purchased the Printed version but am highly considering going back before The Avenue ends to pick up the solids pack. Tthe package contains sizes for Adam, Aesthetic, Gianni, SLink Physique, and TMP with two versions: regular and “exposed” for those of you who are a bit more daring.

Exile is featuring the “Outsider” hair at The Dark Style Fair 4. With the new rich textures that Kavar Cleansate has begun to use in the new era of the brand, it was hard not to splurge and pick up the “All or Nothing” pack. This ear length hair is great for those of you who like having hair that is not short but also not down to your neck or farther. It seems that Exile has been releasing more female items but I expect that to change in the near future and I await with anticipation what he has in store for us fellas.

A few posts back I re-visited the “Ardor Eyes” from Avi-Glam. No sooner did I publish the post I received a delivery of an update adding new iris colors that were not previously included. I like that Avi-Glam takes care of their products and sees opportunities to enhance or update them and for those who previously purchased them are given the new product instead of having to re-purchase them to gain access to those colors that were not available when it first was released.

My last little bit of information for you is about the pose I used for this look. It is the “Kevin (Revisited)” set by Poseology which I originally obtained at the Pose Fair but didn’t have an idea to put it to use during the event. This set of poses are mainly used for those who might be body builders and or more muscular than yours truly which is why I had a little fun with it.

Now that you’ve been given all the pertinent information about what went into this look, I will leave you with the look/style credits below here along with access to the store and event locations for every item I used. I look forward to seeing you back again but until then as always, stay stylish fellas.
