“This Hollywood won’t break me
I said, Hollywood don’t shine as bright
And I am not a supernova
Imploding into the night…
Into the night“
“Hollywood” – Lukas Rossi ♫Listen♫
It’s not very often that I get a chance to feature something from one of the events that I love to hate and hate to love. That’s right, I finally have some items from the June round of The Arcade just in time to give you fellas a chance to get there before it closes on the 30th.
Genesis Lab has a machine there filled with various smoking accessories but also two Bento mesh heads, Flor and Ethan that are two of the RARE items inside the machine. The machine also consists of facial skins for the heads but does not come with body skins but fear not if you are the owner of any of the body appliers from Bold & Beauty then you can use them to match things up. Even if you don’t have any and you like the head and skin enough, you can find them HERE.
Normally I don’t go into much detail about what inspires the imagery of my photos and let the picture do the talking as I just provide information about the products I’m using and thoughts about them. However, I felt a bit more compelled to talk a little more about it. I was exploring the Rainy Alley sim that I used in my last work and found another spot I liked so well that I thought I’d come back again and do another scene. Sometimes I have an idea for a song to use as a soundtrack beforehand and other times I don’t, which is the case here. I started to listen to some tunes that I hadn’t thought about for a long time. Along came “Hollywood” by Lukas Rossi. It fit the scene because it tells a tale of a musician who’s coming down off of the rush of fame because their pride was more important than becoming a puppet to the politics of music and the suits that run the record companies. So the scene suggests that the person is happier playing in front of few or no one than to be compromised to be someone they are not just to play in arenas and large crowds.
To compliment the scene I went with leather pants made by Pee Bee McMillan, which I am wearing with my Gianni body. The package also comes with sizes for Adam, Aesthetic, SLink, Standard, and TMP. I believe they have also just updated them to also fit Belleza Jake as well. These leather pants are great for living out your rock n roll fantasies or if you’re big into the goth scene or just have that dark and brooding personality; it works for just about everything you could think of.
I also went and dug into my closet and accessorized the leather jeans with the “Boston” boots by A&D clothing. They definitely go well with them and add to overall rocker look that I was going for. Which I feel like I nailed down well enough.
The pose I used is not a marketplace item as the designer is no longer active but still has his items for sale on the MP. HISpose put out a set that goes well with a microphone stand called “HISmic” which was perfect for the setup I configured. I really liked this set and many of the others that HISpose created so it is much to my dismay that he no longer is active in creating poses. I can only wonder what HISpose would release now that we are in the age of bento?
Be sure to grab demos while you are at these stores and events which of course you can find transportation to down below in the full style credits. I look forward to bringing another look to you very soon but until then, stay stylish fellas!
