[#401] Where Do We Go From Here?

I’m not so glad I met you
It makes me want to go away
I touch
Yeah, yeah, yeah…

Where Do We Go From Here?” – FilterListen

Lately it seems I’ve been running back to Netherwood to do shoots because there are just so many places I can go at the location but what helps matters is that if you are a paid group member, you can put down items to help your scene. In this case it was the really cool plane wreckage that I found on the Marketplace. While I am not going to officially credit the item, I am going to give you the link to it here so that you can check it out yourself and some of the other items available.

Most of my items in this entry are not entirely new or from current events but they are from recent rounds of events that make them semi-new. I just can’t label them as new because that would not be telling the truth. In case you were wondering what exactly I consider new when I tag it that way in the credits is if it is currently available at an event or is a recent main store release during the particular month. Once the item is no longer at the event or the month ends I do not consider it to be new.

Most of the outfits I have had on lately I’ve really enjoyed putting together and this one is certainly no different. I managed to find a great hair, awesome clothes, great tattoos, and a good setting to paint a picture. Keep in mind that you should always take demos before buying, broken record or not, I am covering all the bases so you everyone who reads this (male or female) enjoys a great shopping experience and bringing home great clothing and accessories (and furniture in some cases). Time to put this one to bed and ask that you take a look at the credits below and until the next adventure, stay fashionable with a song in your heart.

HAIR⊱ Modulus – Anwar Hair @ Man CaveNEW

When I was thinking of a way to describe this hair it took a while for me to come up with something good until I thought of the fact that it reminded me a little bit of Travis Barker at one point in his blink-182 career. In a way I supposed you could also consider it a punk rock style as well. Either way it is one that I really have enjoyed and it really helped define this look. It comes in several color packs or you can purchase them all for an adjusted price (which if you were thinking of more than one would it be that bad of an idea?)

HAIRBASE/BEARD⊱ .:cheeky:. 3 Days Beard & Hairbase @ M.O.MNEW
HEADCATWA – Shaheen (Bento)
EYESGo&See – Pond

Somehow I managed to let these slip past my radar. These Catwa enabled applier eyes are a bit on the brooding side which is why they appeal to me and made putting them with this look a good choice. There are 10 iris colors to choose from with two versions.

FACE⊱ STRAY DOG – MARVIN – TONE 02 @ TMDNEW
BODYBelleza – Jake
TATTOO⊱ ISUKA Struggle @ Man CaveNEW

When I saw this tattoo while I was browsing around during the opening of the current round of Man Cave I knew deep down I had to have this. A lot of times I tend to neglect tattoos which I know is not fair but sometimes it is hard to find looks to put them with. This was one of those times where I needed something to add a little extra edge to my look. There are three different opacity types and there are appliers for most major mesh bodies.

TANKTOPRazor/// Vice Sleevless Tee – LOS

This tank was a part of last months TMD and I just couldn’t find the right pair of pants to pair it with until I remembered I had the Washed Combat Joggers from REPRESENT which I’ll get to in a second. This graphic tank has regular and worn versions with a graphic that has several different color variations to it so that you can choose what works best for you. What made this promising is that it has a fit for the Belleza body which right now is hands down my favorite; it does come with other sizes as well, SLink, and Signature to name a few.

SWEATPANTSREPRESENT – Washed Combat Joggers “Navy”

I try not to rely too heavily on sweatpants or “joggers” as they are sometimes called but it seems my wardrobe lately has seen its fair share. Though it is good to be able to take a break from shorts or jeans and even dress pants because that kind of thing can bring you at a fashion impasse (or at least I think so). These come fitted for the usual mesh bodies but I would still suggest making sure you try them before purchasing just in case.

SHOES[VALE KOER] HEATUP SNEAKERS

Easily one of my top 5 favorite shoe designers as I’ve probably stated in past entries (I am more likely to say top 3 without hesitation). The fact that you can purchase a FATPACK for the price of what two single pairs of shoes might cost and have the ability to nearly unlimited customization makes it a no brainer. It is good that the Belleza body has the ability to work with SLink feet until designers start to release products for it outight. That way I can still wear the body and still continue wearing some incredible footwear.

Imitation – Miguel

When a new pose maker comes across my radar I usually check them out just to see if they are going to have something that is going to catch my attention/interest. I came across the Imitation brand while doing a walk through of FI*Friday (Fifty Five Linden Friday). The poses looked good and for the price at the time seemed like a great deal. I am really impressed with the brand and have since purchased more poses (I believe they are also a part of the Animosity Pose brand as well) that I’ll be using coming up in future posts. Keep an eye out for this brand if you are looking for nicely made poses for guys because they are done very well.

[#400] Leave Out All The Rest

After my dreaming
I woke with this fear
What am I leaving
When I’m done here?

Leave Out All The Rest” – Linkin ParkListen

Some time has passed and I’ve had time to process some things but first and foremost I wanted to pay tribute to a musician that has had an impact not only on myself but on countless others. Regardless of whether you like the music of Linkin Park it’s hard to deny that they hold a place in the annals of music legend. Creatively written lyrics and a combination of soft vocals and raw guttural screams they came a long way from the beginning of the rap/rock scene.

When the news broke that Chester had passed a large range of emotions had filled my head. It just seemed like so many people that I admired from a music fan standpoint were suddenly just disappearing. Unfortunately I won’t ever be able to see the band in concert but I will still have the music that was created at my disposal to listen to and remember fondly. My heart truly goes out to his family, friends, and bandmates. The world is missing one light that seemed to flicker bright even when shrouded in so much darkness.

There were a few songs I could have used for the theme of this photo shoot but I think what I chose as the final is the best to represent how I feel and many others as well. If you find yourself needing to talk to someone because you are having a tough time do not be afraid, there is always someone out there with an ear to lend even if you do not think they do. Full credits are below so I will let you dig into those but I also have to say that I did edit one of the record sleeves on the pose prop just in case you like it enough to buy it and see that it is not as it appears here. I will see you all again next time, until then stay stylish fellas.

HAIRBASE/BEARD⊱ .:cheeky:. 3 Days Beard & Hairbase @ M.O.MNEW

Another new round of Men Only Monthly has begun and there are a lot of goodies to check out including this hair and beard combination. You can wear either or both via a HUD (included is one for CATWA and one also for OMEGA applier capable heads). There are several hair color types to choose from so for those of you who wear different colors from time to time as I do, you’ll be represented.

HEADCATWA – Daniel (Bento)

JACKET::GB:: Loose Cotton Jacket Set / Khaki

This jacket was previously a part of last month’s UBER event, however, since that time Takuya Jinn sent out an update for those of you who did not buy it at the event. The update adds a hoodie you can wear with the jacket which I feel was a nice added touch. There are no specific sizes for mesh bodies on this but should work with just about all of them with the use of alpha cuts.

PANTS⊱ M.NA: Saudade @ ROMPNEW

Due to some of the issues I had lately it took me longer to get these put into a look. ROMP is in its last day of being open for this round but there is still time to run out and get these pants. There are lots of features to this as well as denim and leather textures to give you multiple looks. Sizes included for these pants include Belleza, Signature, SLink, and TMP male bodies. The FATPACK has a HUD with 3 extra textures as well as a color picker so that you can create your own flavor to the pants.

SHOES⊱ FLite.-NoMads – Fatpack @ n21NEW

Some time has passed since FLite has come out with a new release but at the n21 event they have come back with a vengeance. The NoMads sneakers are really cool. Reasonably priced and you get all the styles available in the HUD that is included. You really can’t beat it for a pair of shoes from my personal top 5 favorite shoe creators. Sizes included are (there are also sizes for women but as this is a male blog I’m only going to list the ones for the fellas) Belleza Jake and SLink male bodies.

::WetCat:: “Beat Junkie” Prop

Being that I am an audiophile (a lover of music) this pose/prop really caught my attention. It was originally at the Cosmopolitan event but I had purchased it just before the round it was in closed as I had almost forgotten that it was featured there. There are poses inside the prop for the gals as well as unisex poses and each of them are adjustable so you can get the best angle/look that fits you. This was one of the defining parts of this entry as it gelled with the emotion that I was going for.

[#399] Falls On Me

And all of your weight
All you dream
It falls on me, it falls on me
And your beautiful sky
The light you bring
It falls on me, it falls on me

Falls On Me” – FuelListen

It’s been a little bit of a tough week. Since I last made an entry I had some slight setbacks with my rig and it put a slight damper on being able to blog (which of course when I have time to and really wanted to it was impossible). I’ve also celebrated another year of birth this past weekend so that was pretty exciting but now that the dust has settled it’s back to business as usual. A new round of Men Only Monthly opened which I am excited for, I had a sneak peak of it before it opened but I definitely need to get back there for more items. There has been little time for shopping as of late but I intend to hit the events hard in the next week so I can put together some cool outfits and visuals to share with all of you.

I am also happy to be partnered with the Avi-Glam brand once again as they are once again sponsors of myself and These Conversations Kill. I look forward to featuring their new products and sharing them with you. I started with a set of eyes in the last post and I’ve done it again this time as well with ones that are from Shiny Shabby.

If you are into exploring, you should check out the Flux Sur Mer sim which I’ve given the location of below in the credits. Great views await and it is a very large location so there is lots of things to see and photograph if you like taking pics (or are also a blogger and need a location). I’m going to leave you with the rest of the credits and my thoughts on the newest things I am wearing and also encourage you to take a look at these events and stores, as well as the vendors I’ve purchased items from on the Marketplace. With all things, I suggest that you try a demo first so that you can be happy with your purchase. That’s all I have for this entry, see you again soon but like always: stay stylish fellas!

HAIRlock&tuft – ruined
HEADCATWA – Daniel (Bento)
EYES⊱ AG. Silky Eyes @ Shiny ShabbyNEW

Silky Eyes are the latest product from Avi-Glam. There are 6 different iris tones and each one comes with a HUD to change each eye (or if you want to go with a different one for each side you can choose another color). There are also three sizes of pupil available as well (Small, Medium, or Large). The product includes HUDs for Catwa and Omega applier enabled eyes or one for the two mesh eyes that are included. I really like these, they photograph well but then I’ve always enjoyed this brand’s eyes.

FACE⊱ ::LV:. Kitt T2/Pearl ♯  MarketplaceNEW

Lee Valentine is at it again! This new skin is based off of that one guy that’s in a show that just about everyone watches (except me because I’m late to the party). Very handsome English looking fellow that comes in the form of a CATWA applier. The body appliers you can find at the Stray Dog store in the form of their T2 shade. For this skin I went back to the Daniel head because it looked best between the two that I own. The package does include and eyebrow and body shape respectively but I did not use the body shape this time around.

SHIRT⊱ ::K:: Band Collar Popover Shirt Homme White @ TMDNEW

I’ve been a fan of Kitt Ragu’s work for a long time, the ::K:: brand often has interesting clothing even if it is not my style or fits the avatar I might be wearing at the time. Fortunate enough for me the new Popover shirt at The Men’s Department has a size for Belleza which I took advantage of. This shirt is definitely a casual one with there being a bit of open space in the front. Normally I do not wear unbuttoned shirts like this but I figured I’d take a walk on the wild side and give it a try; believe me I was not disappointed. You can get this shirt in 5 different colors and sizes included besides what I’ve already mentioned are: Signature, SLink, and TMP.

JEANS⊱ ::K:: Slim Fit Jeans Homme Used @ TMDNEW

So you’ve just bought the Popover Shirt and don’t have any pants you want to wear with it? Well you don’t have to go very far because right at the same booth at The Men’s Department are the Slim Fit Jeans. These jeans come in the same sizes as the shirt and has 6 different denim types to choose from. Included in the package also are several colored belts if wearing them is something you like to do but it is totally optional. I’m really happy with how these items pair up and I think you will be too.

SHOES⊱ Native Urban – Zeeba Sneakers AC @ M.O.MNEW

More than likely I have probably mentioned before that it is more difficult to find shoes for the Belleza body unless you use the SLink feet fit and wear shoes that are fitted for them (which doesn’t necessarily always work well). That is why I was excited to see these low-top sneakers at Men Only Monthly. Native Urban is a brand I’ve known for some time and have purchased things from them with a high level of satisfaction and these are no different. Just to let you all know, I purchased the FATPACK just because I know I can use a different color for another potential outfit in the future or just to wear around when I’m out shopping or hanging out. Sizes included for this product are Belleza, Signature, SLink, and Unrigged for Standard Avatars. Also included in the FATPACK is a HUD to change the color of the shoe as well as different parts (such as the soles, the back patch etc).

[#398] Burning Down The House

Watch out, you might get what your after
Cool babies, strange but not a stranger
I am an ordinary guy…

Burning Down The House” – The Talking HeadsListen

I‘ve returned after drawing some inspiration from the olden days of music but adding a little bit of TCK twist to it to make it work. I’ve always been fascinated by the music of The Talking Heads from back when I was younger and still kind of finding my way through what I liked music wise. I think it is because of artists like this I have found an appreciation for many different kinds of music.

Artistically I like to create images that may seem different or odd to some but are perfectly normal to me. That’s the beauty of art, you don’t really have to like it if you don’t want to because at some point there will be someone that will and I am quite alright with that. I know I enjoy it at least so it starts from there.

I managed to find a really great background prop to use for this photo session that made the idea that I had in my head a little easier. At first I was not sure how I was going to pull it off or if I was going to try and use post production but I found an item that fit perfectly.

Covered in this post are items from events such as FaMESHed, Hipster Mens Event, The Men’s Department, and Designer Showcase. I also want to welcome back Avi-Glam as a returning sponsor of this blog. I look forward to featuring your products in the future and I’ve even started with one in this entry from a recently past event. Just so I don’t take up too much of your time I’m going to dive right into the credits and what I have to say about some of the latest and greatest. Thank you to all of you that are reading this whoever you are. I’ll be back soon with more great new items but until then as always, stay stylish fellas!

HAIR⊱ Stealthic – Hysteria @ FaMESHedNEW

Stealthic has been around for a short time as a part of the virtual hair creating scene. What I like best about this brand (which many brands are starting to do as well) is offer a styling HUD so that you can have a variation of it that may sway to either the right or the left of maybe even have it a little more fly-away. It’s just one of the things I consider a value when making a purchasing decision and a feature that I think is being more sought after. With 6 different color packs to choose from (a FATPACK is also available) there’s no reason not to check out this hair.

HEAD⊱ CATWA – Shaheen (Bento)
EYESAG. Gleaming Eyes

From the previous round of Shiny Shabby, these eyes have vibrant tones and make them great for use in just about any kind of thing you do virtually. The package includes HUDS for CATWA, Omega, and LetLutka compatible appliers as well as mesh eyes with a HUD to change between the different colors (6 in total to choose from).

FACE⊱ amias – KIAN – invory @ TMDNEW

When browsing through TMD and seeing a lot of the usual suspects that I have come to know, love, and admire, I came across a new skin by a brand that I had never previously heard of before. Amias really did a good job with the “KIAN” skin (which comes in a choice of 3 tones). Also available at their booth are the body appliers (which you can get for Belleza, Signature, and SLink bodies). This Catwa applier has several options to choose from (no brows to several colored brows as well as clean shaven to two different lengths of stubble). I am very impressed with this product and would recommend it for anyone looking to give something new a try.

JACKET⊱ //Ascend// Marc Jacket – Plain @ FaMESHedNEW

Some time has passed since I purchased a product from Ascend and while I was strolling through FaMESHed I came across their latest release (a jacket/shirt combination) the “Marc” Jacket. Sold individually or as a FATPACK, these jackets have a color change HUD included for the shirt to give you several options to fit your style. I purchased the Plain version, but there are also three other versions available (Denim, Pinstriped and Tweed).

PANTS⊱ //Ascend// Marc Formal Pant – Plains @ Hipster Mens EventNEW

While I cannot officially say these pants were meant to be a part of a whole suit (combined with the Marc Jacket) but I will say that they compliment one another very well. The pants also come in the same styles as the jacket so you can mix and match or stick with the same style. Both the jacket and pants will fit users wearing Adam, Belleza, Signature, SLink, and TMP mesh bodies. Looking for apparel for a weekend wedding or a well dressed night out…check out the Ascend booth at both FaMESHed and Hipster Mens Event.

SHOES⊱ ::GB::Vintage Suit / White ♯ Currently Unavailable

The shoes are a part of a whole suit that was being offered at an event quite a long time ago but since I had them sitting around and they worked with the look I was going for I thought I would wear them. Sadly though they are not available currently but you could always contact the people at Gabriel and inquire about it. There’s no harm in doing so.

HOUSE⊱ D’STOPIAN // Burned to Hell ♯ Marketplace

One thing I never anticipated was actually being able to find a house that was actually on fire. With some scouring over the marketplace I was able to find this build which worked perfectly as a back setting in which my theme was based off of. It also gives off that kind of eerie vibe to it as well if you are able to look close enough.


IE- Choices @ Designer Showcase (4m/5) ♯ NEW

A new item from my sponsors at Image Essentials, this set comes with 5 poses (with 5 included mirrors for a total of 10). I really like pose sets like this that give a sort of suave appeal to them. It almost gives the antagonist of the scene a sense of being a charmer while being completely devious and evil.

[#397] Then Say No More…

I’ve been building scars up
Putting flames out with my fingers
Tell me when my times up
So my hope no longer lingers

This Is The Sound” – The ExiesListen

Sometimes when you become inspired by fashion or even a pose set and you are eager to get right into it you hope that when you finish the final result meets whatever expectation is in your head. I feel like with this particular session that it turned out as I expected and more. I really truly honestly love the raw emotion that flowed through when I put this together. You may even agree with me that it could be one of my best offerings in a while. Everything I used made this come together just as I had hoped it would.

Even though I haven’t put these items in the full credits I wanted to give honorable mention to the little items that helped make up the scene for this photo shoot. The round table I used is the “Barrel Table Redwood” by Trompe Loeil, the ashtray is a part of the “Lyla” bar set from [Fetch], the bottles are from a set by {Theosophy} which is no longer available, the store sadly is no more. Lastly the lighter is a part of a pose set called “Blow Smoke” by WetCat Poses. All of these items set the tone for what I was looking for as part of the theme. As I said it does have a bit of raw emotion to it and we’ve all at one point in time or another have felt like pain helps take away other issues surrounding us and some display it differently and in harmful ways which I do not condone, I’ll just put that out there.

This entry features items from The Men’s Department, the newest round of Man Cave, and also On9. Each one of those events are full of great finds, buys, and things that you may find hard to pass up. I will leave you with the credits and maybe catch you out and about, you just never know. Until next time, as always stay stylish fellas!

HAIRMithral * Cashew (Variety)

This item was one I picked up at Hair Fair this year but didn’t have the exactly look or idea for it until now. I’ll be honest that it is a hair that was created with females in mind but with minimal effort, I made it work for me or any other fella that wants a longer hair and is not a fan of any out there on the market. I purchased the variety pack as sometimes I do like to switch things up so it made it the most logical for me in deciding on the purchase.

HEADCATWA – Shaheen (Bento)
EYES⊱ MESANGE – Skye Eyes @ On9NEW

Another set of vibrant eyes from MESANGE that come in 15 different iris colors via an Omega enabled HUD or by mesh eyes themselves. You can get these at the current round of On9. Thank you to MESANGE for being a sponsor of this little corner of the interwebs.

FACE⊱ Stray Dog – Marvin – TONE 02 @ TMDNEW

I’m finally wearing a new skin from Stray Dog that fits my style. Marvin is actually styled for a red headed avatar but you can wear it without brows or freckles and do your own thing, which is what I’ve done here. I really like this look even though in this scene I tend to look a bit on the angry side. This product is a Catwa applier and comes in three different tones; it also comes with a brow and body shape to use.

SHIRT⊱ TonkTastic – Cotton Tee @ MAN CAVENEW

TonkTastic is a brand that has been around a long time, I remember one of my first pairs of combat boots were made by this store. They are still very relevant today and have just done a collaboration with Hermony to bring us this really awesome shirt. There are four different packs to purchase which come with a HUD that you can combine each of the shirt designs which allows you to have an abundance of choices. Sizes included are Aesthetic, Belleza, Classic Avis, Signature, SLink, and TMP. This is really a great everyday shirt to do just about whatever you want in.

JEANS⊱ Lenox Disruptor Jeans @ TMDNEW

I am a jeans and t-shirt guy for the most part because when I’m not really doing a shoot or having to wear fancier clothing I just like to relax and look comfortable as I would in the real world. So I needed to find a pair that would go well with the shirt I had in mind. I realized I had picked these up at TMD and hadn’t found an outfit to match them with so it was naturally a good fit. These jeans have built in boxers (which you can change from 6 different designs or remove them with the included HUD). There are 9 denim colors to choose from as well and come fitted for avatars that own Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature, SLink, or TMP bodies. There is also an option for a bootcut version for the boot wearing crowd.

RING⊱ [DF] Keyboard Ring ♯ Marketplace

I am a fan of jewelry of all types in the real world and I’ve been trying to figure out ways to bring that into the virtual one. I was looking around on the marketplace and happened upon this ring. Being the fan of music that I am as well, the piano keys spoke to me and I knew I just had to have it. I really like the promise that bento rings have and how they actually move with your fingers in poses and AOs which they did not do before bento.

RINGS⊱ Ysoral – Luxe Set Rings Luc ♯ Marketplace

This set of rings caught my eye as well as I was browsing and the options available really made it worth taking the time to make the purchase. There are plenty of metal colors and for the rings with gems on them, there are options of many colors as well. The package includes a set for each hand and through the HUD you can even hide the rings you do not want to wear if you are feeling specific. I really hope Ysoral continues to make cool rings because I will return to their shop in the future.

SKYBOX⊱ *Drot* Apt Zero @ MAN CAVENEW

Drot has mostly been associated with being a creator of hair and other accessories but they’ve gotten into the build game and have been releasing prefabs and skybox’s such as “Apt Zero” for the Man Cave event. I really loved the old abandoned look of this. It had that dark effect that I wanted to utilize as well. Major kudos to Drot for putting out a really cool skybox seting.


FOXCITY – Mens Just Psycho (Fatpack Exclusive/6) @ On9NEW

This was the center piece of this photo/look/blog. When I first saw the advertisement for this it caught my eye. It gave me the chills a little bit because of all the unhinged type of things I could create with it. While you can buy each pose separate why would you when you get the exclusive pose with the Fatpack. I remember at one time watching a movie where someone was putting a knife between their fingers really fast while drinking to see if they would make a mistake and put the knife in their hand; this pose replicates that image. I am sure a lot of interesting pictures can be created with this set and there is also a female version as well to purchase.

[#396] I Always Feel Like Somebody’s Watching Me

When I’m in the shower

Somebody’s Watching Me” – RockwellListen

After some hectic days in the real world, I am back to have a little fun with some cool clothing, poses, and backdrops. When I first saw the advertisement for one of my sponsors, Image Essentials, it instantly popped up in my head what I wanted to do with it. I grabbed a few people to help me and feel like I made some magic happen.

There are quite a few new things in this post from the returning TMD (The Men’s Department), Lost & Found which is open for the current round until the 18th, and also the Mesh Body Addicts Fair.

There are a lot of great shopportunities going on at the events I’ve featured today and more, which I hope to be covering in upcoming posts. Going to all these different kinds of events and finding different things really helps inspire me to connect visuals in my head with all sorts of music as you might be able to tell by flipping through the entries of this site. I’ll let you delve into the credits and discover great events and stores and always grab demos to make sure that what you put in your closet brings a smile to your face. Until next time, stay stylish fellas!

HAIRModulus – Kaleb Hair

This hair is a holdover from the Hair Fair that I just managed to unpack because I wanted to find something to go with the “Lukas” hair base and why not pair the same brand together? This combed back hair with a little straying strands in the back goes well with parted hair bases, shaved ones, or just about any you might have in your collection.

HAIR BASE⊱ Modulus – Lukas Hair Base @ TMDNEW

One of two new hair bases available from Modulus at TMD. This side parted hair base goes well with hairs that are not all the way around the sides and back. You can wear it with any hair you want but it would not be used to its full potential. If you are looking for a quality hair base then this will easily fit your requirements.

HEADCATWA – Shaheen (Bento)
EYES⊱ MESANGE – Sanford Eyes @ Lost & FoundNEW

From my sponsor at MESANGE comes the “Sanford Eyes” 15 great iris colors to choose from that are available for single purchase or can be purchased all together in a FATPACK, which makes the most sense if you are a fan of changing eye colors. There is a HUD for omega applier compatible eyes but also comes with regular mesh eyes.

FACE⊱ Clef de Peau – Colin T2 @ TMDNEW

Colin is the latest release from Clef de Peau and is a handsome gentleman with a bit of ruggedness to him. I didn’t notice at first but when you look closer, there is a slight scar on his lip which adds to the uniqueness of his look. This is a CATWA only applier and includes brow and body shapes for the three current mesh heads. The applier also has the option to add freckles if that is a part of your look. TMD runs until the end of the month so there is plenty of opportunity to take this skin for a test drive.

BODYBelleza – Jake

SHIRTEXMACHINA HIPSTER TSHIRT

I have been hearing things about this brand for a while now but had never really taken a look into it until recently. EXMACHINA is the clothing division of the Egoisme brand. After taking a stroll through, I find they have some really cool clothing but I was being particularly picky because I wanted to wear something that fit the Belleza body and I found that in this shirt and the corresponding pants. This graphic shirt has 10 different designs you can choose from so there is extended value to it. Combined with the pants I am wearing you can have almost unlimited choices and combinations. Sizes also available in the package include Signature and SLink.

PANTSEXMACHINA SPORT PANTS

After finding the HIPSTER shirt, I came across these sport pants. I happen to think pants like these are comfortable based on the fact I wear them in the real world sometimes. Combining the two items together make for a really casual look for just hanging out or going out on a shopping excursion. I’m also wearing the Belleza version of these but also included are Signature, SLink, Standard Sizes (XS-XL) and TMP with a HUD that gives you 10 different style options. These would even work well if you exercised or did any kind of sport activity.

SHOES⊱ [VALE KOER] CITY SOCK TRAINERS @ UberNEW

Sometimes finding shoes to go with an outfit is difficult based on factor of style and also what mesh body you might be wearing. At times with the limited amount of footwear for the Belleza body (which is beginning to chance) it makes the task a bit more difficult. Though I managed to put on the SLink version of these (as the Belleza body has a SLink foot converter in the HUD). I always enjoy Vale Koer products because they are stylish and always putting out new items that keep up with real trends in footwear. Of course I always by the FATPACK’s because of the endless customization that you can achieve with them (and the price point won’t break your band too badly). Sizes included in the package consist of Signature, SLink, and TMP (for the guys) and Belleza, Maitreya, and SLink (for the gals) as well as an unrigged version for standard avi’s.

BACKDROPPseudo – Townhouse Scene

With the impressive quality of mesh backdrops these days, it’s making it easier to create an impressive scene without having to worry about going to a pre-decorated location (which is still preferred and fun) to create a good looking visual. Pseudo’s gacha machines always seem to have inspiring places to try to play for so that you can put together a great setting with very little fuss or frustration. I encourage you to check out what they have to offer and even visit their booths in current events which you can find transportation to from the store itself.

IE – Photobomb v.4 (b) @ Mesh Body Addicts FairNEW

Photobombing has become a trend over the last couple of years and has become quite an art for people in both the real and virtual world. Some have even made it part of their “gimmick” if you will. Image Essentials has captured the essence of this fad by creating 8 different sets featuring many incarnations of photobombing. What you see in this entry is v.4 which is sort of a ominous way of creeping up on someone while they are being photographed. I really had fun with this and appreciate the two clowns that had a hand in helping out with the visual presentation. Looks like the joke was on me this time out.

[#395] In A World Of Human Wreckage

When I’m lost and I’m found
and I can’t touch the ground
I’m plowed into the sound…

Plowed” – SpongeListen

This is the last weekend of the Indie Teepee event and I hope you’ve been able to get there and enjoy all the sights and sounds as well as shopping that the event has to offer. This is my last post covering the event and I hope that you agree with me that it is going out with a bang. The item I chose to feature here is a fun one, and considering I don’t do decor (or landscaping) items very much I thought it might be one of those times where I snuck one in. While I didn’t create everything you see in the background, that would go to the wonderful sim known as Netherwood. I just provided a little extra touch to complete my idea/theme.

Most of my overall look remains the same from the last few posts but I am featuring a new skin by Modulus which you will be able to find at the Mesh Body Addicts Fair that just recently started.

The next photo you are about to see is an overview shot of the BROKEN BOY giant doll by NOMAD. I submerged it in water as if it was a part of an old civilization from long ago that has simply been left dormant and decaying around what has come after it. I really liked this shot too much to edit it into the secondary features shot so I left it as was originally shot.

I‘d like to thank everyone from the event coordinator down to all the artists, speakers, musicians, and item creators that took part in Indie Teepee. This is truly one of the most unique events out there and I am seriously proud to have been associated with it as a blogger; I look forward to next years event. Here’s the full credits for those of you who are eagerly awaiting to know what took part in this photo shoot. Make sure when you hit these stores and events you grab demos and happy shopping! I’ll see you again soon but until then, stay stylish fellas!

EYES⊱ MESANGE – Wicked Game Eyes @ M.O.MNEW
FACE⊱ Modulus – Giles Skin – Cream @ Mesh Body Addicts FairNEW

This handsome devil is just the latest from my sponsor in Modulus. Giles comes in six tones (I am featuring Cream here). Also included is a eyebrow shaper and a body shape (which I did not use for this shoot). This is part of a new era of skins by the brand and if this is any indication, good things are in store for the M-Bare division of Modulus.

TATTOO⊱ BODY MOD – Black Roses Tattoo @ SaNaRaeNEW

CARDIGAN⊱ /Ascend/ Hiroshi Cardigan w/Shirt – Gray

This item was a holdout from the July round of The Men’s Department that I was able to find a look to compliment it with. Even though the weather for me in the real world is a bit warm yet, it’s not something I have to worry about in-world. I like how it is paired with the shirt perfectly and has a good flow to it without looking constricted. Sizes available in the package are for Adam, Belleza, Signature, and SLink and also include a HUD to color change the t-shirt if you choose to go with another color.

SHORTS⊱ RIOT / Emery Denim Shorts @ Mesh Body Addicts FairNEW

It’s a back to back entry with another new item from one of my sponsors in RIOT. I have the privilege of reviewing these slightly rolled up shorts which have worn elements and threading that is also worn and frayed. In this FATPACK there are a ton of different options for denim and at least a dozen different choices for the threading. You can purchase single denim colors but if you like variety it is very practical to go with the FATPACK. Sizes you can find in the package include Adam, Belleza, Signature, and SLink.

DOLL⊱ NOMAD // BROKEN BOY @ Indie TeepeeNEW

NOMAD never disappoints me when they release an item that catches my eye, which is why I chose this item as part of my blogger product reviews for Indie Teepee. I really get the feel that this large doll was inspired somehow by the Fallout games and also reminds me of something personally. Many may be way too young to remember Big Boy restauarants or have ever had them in their area. It was pretty big in the midwest and outside them was a huge doll in a similar style holding a hamburger. At first I tried to find a post apocalyptic location to shoot at but I could not find any that I was able to put this item down at but I do feel that it turned out nicely as it ended up.

Le Poppycock *La Di Da* B (Make Good)

This pose set is one I had stored away from a while back from an event and when I was looking for something I thought would fit, I found it in my unused poses but I am glad that I was able to because I do enjoy Le Poppycock and their poses. Check them out if you are needing poses because there is just about something for everyone.
