[#409] It Was Worth It In The End

We knew we had to leave this town
But we never knew when and we never knew how
We would end up here the way we are

September” – DaughtryListen

As the season is beginning to change you’ll start seeing scenery changes on just about all the fashion blogs out there and there’s nothing wrong with that. I encourage people to use whatever might inspire them and the changing of seasons is one of those things that can help renew the creative juices flowing within our minds. While personally I am not a fan of colder weather I do embrace it every now and again when it gives me something to work with.

Listening to some playlists the other day I came up with the theme for this photo and it really fits considering the title of the song is the month we are actually still in (but not for much longer of course). It also happened that I saw a photo at a sim I always enjoyed taking pics at, The Fall Trace, which I had not kept up with or even thought was still open. Very glad that it is though and there is a taxi for you down in the full credits.

I only have one sponsored item in my look this time and is another color from the “Charm Eyes” by Avi-Glam currently being sold at Shiny Shabby. I feel as though sometimes if you feature more then one color from an eye set it helps consumers make more of a decision on whether or not they want to purchase the product.

Also in this look set are items from The Men’s Department which has a day or so more left before they close up for the beginning of the next round to get set up. I really did managed to bring home a lot of merch from this month’s event and every bit of it has been great to feature in my work.

Events also featured in this entry are the Hipster Men’s Event and a brand new round of Shoetopia (which I was excited to see as there are usually a small but good amount of footwear for us fellas there). As for the Hipster Men’s event, I have since its first round come home with quite a few items. Another reason to look forward to the beginning of a new month!

I’ve taken up enough of your time but I’m glad you’ve come to take a look at my latest adventure but it is time to go begin a new one…a new conversation if you will. Below are the credits as well as some personal thoughts on the newest items in the look.

Onto the next conversation …

HAIR⊱ no.match_ – NO_SNOW @ Hipster Men’s EventNEW

Even Kit Harrington himself would be impressed with this hair based off of his character on Game of Thrones. This very authentic looking hair is available in several different color packs as well as a variety and Fatpack. Also included is a HUD for a matching hairbase. It comes in a small and large size. I had to take a front and back photo of this to show you how accurate it looks.

HEADLeLutka – Andrea ♯ NEW
EYES⊱ AG. Charm Eyes – Fatpack @ Shiny ShabbyNEW
FACE⊱ ~Tableau Vivant~ – Andrea 003 @ LeLutkaNEW
BODYBelleza – Jake

SHIRT/VEST⊱ ::K:: Classy Gillet Homme Tan @ TMDNEW

Part one of a separated outfit available for a few more days at The Men’s Department. Shirt and Vest (or Gillet’s as they are also called) combinations are a favorite of mine to have in my virtual closet. There are several Gillet colors to choose from (also available in a Fatpack if you can’t decide on just one) with an included HUD that gives you 6 options to change the color of your shirt to. Belleza, Signature, SLink, and TMP male body wearers can head over to TMD to take a look at this very casual combo.

PANTS⊱ ::K:: Soft Cargo Pants Homme Navy @ TMDNEW

So you’ve probably just picked up the Classy Gillet and are thinking “I don’t have any pants to go with this” and then as you are at TMD your eyes wander below to find these excellent pair of cargo’s. With the option to wear them with or without the included belt (which has a HUD to change the color) you are sure to look your best wherever you may be wearing them to, either by themselves or as a complete outfit with the Classy Gillet. These pants are available separately or as a Fatpack and compatible with the same sizes as the Gillet above.

SHOES⊱ A&D Clothing – Shoes -Firenze- @ ShoetopiaNEW

With the upper and lower part of the body covered, I needed something to cover the dogs as it were and fortunately enough a new round of Shoetopia opened. A&D does a really good job with producing quality clothing and footwear and my eyes feasted upon these monk styled dress shoes and thought they were perfect. Just like any other A&D release if you purchase the full Fatpack you get treated to bonus colors and in this release you get them in the form of both shoe and sock colors. Wearers of Classic avi’s as well as Belleza, Signature, SLink, and TMP male mesh bodies will be able to wear these very slick shoes. They are sure to complement any dressed up look and could even be right for some casual attire situations as well.

WRONG & The Owl. Static Male Poses #4 (1) @ Hipster Men’s EventNEW

Pose makers Wrong and The Owl collaborate to bring us a pose pack for the Hipster Men’s Event. 4 different poses to choose from that could make for a good photo opportunity with a quality bento enhanced pose. If these two continue to collaborate in the future I’ll be sure to keep my eyes peeled. Check them out, I encourage you to.

[#408] Written In The Stars

Oh written in the stars
a million miles away
A message to the main…

Written In The Stars” – Tinie Tempah (Feat. Eric Turner)Listen

A few days ago one of the most anticipated male mesh releases hit the ground running. I’m talking about the “ANDREA” bento mesh head by LeLutka. Now I know that a lot of people are familiar with the name from their many different female heads over time but now us fellas have one of our own and I picked one up to see if the hype was worth all the waiting.

I’ll be getting to that in just a moment.

Upon it’s release, Andreas already had three different skins to choose from within the LeLutka store. Two of which were from Tableau Vivant and another from Clef de Peau. It did not take long for other major skin creators to follow suit with 3 different skins from Stray Dog and just recently 4 from Modulus’ “M-Bare” division. So for those of you who are uncertain about taking a look into it for lack of choices, I’m afraid that argument won’t hold water.

I’ll talk a little more about this product below in the credits.

Featured sponsors in this post include Avi-Glam which has a new eye release currently at Shiny Shabby as well as Image Essentials which has a new hand gesture that is a main store new release item. Also included are CULT and Pacagaia (which are new brands to me) as well as another hair from the Stealthic brand.

While I was coming up with my outfit I was also scouring around social media for a place to set the scene because I wasn’t feeling up to using one of the backdrops I have other plans for. This lead me to the Mother Road / Route 66 sim. This gorgeous stretch of roadway has various different things on both sides to explore and capture a moment in. You can find a taxi down below in the credits to go check it out for yourself.

It’s about that time that I leave you to check out the credits and my little notes/ramblings about the items and hope that they might help you give consideration to any of the items featured here within. Please also consider getting demo’s for the items so that you won’t be out of any money should they not work for you as you intend. Thank you for coming along with me on this little adventure and I’ll catch you all next time out.

HAIRStealthic – Hysteria

This side swept hair comes with a styling HUD to give you several different options as to how nice or messy your hair appears. It also has several color packs to choose from as well so that you can match just about any eyebrow/beard color combination you could think of and have it to your liking.

HEADLeLutka – Andrea ♯ NEW

I really feel like I cannot say enough good things about this product. I always was a bit jealous of the gals after seeing the HUDs these heads come with and the amount of interaction and features that are jammed into them. Right out of the box you get animations (expressions and moods) some which are static and some that are looped. As well as options for having braces and fangs (if you happen to be a role-player that has a demon or vampire character). I’m not sure I could even remember everything that the included HUD has because there’s so much. It does come pre-loaded with 10 skin tones by Tableau Vivant themselves who also now have Belleza body appliers for sale right inside the LeLutka store. The bento male head game has just elevated and the stakes are becoming higher which only us fellas can benefit from!

I also have to note that the head is Omega compatible but you must purchase the LeLutka Omega Installer from LoveNLust for any Omega compatible eye or skin appliers to work properly.

EYES⊱ AG. Charm Eyes – Fatpack @ Shiny ShabbyNEW

Sometimes people choose to have different eye colors for different moods or just decide that they want a change of pace. Avi-Glam likely has at least one iris color from their Charm Eyes release that is sure to capture their attention. 30 different colors available with included HUDs for CATWA, OMEGA (which I used with the included LeLutka eyes from the Andrea package) and for the mesh eyeballs that are included. You can also choose the size of pupil (small, medium, or large) as well as which eye you would like to color for those who might want to mix and match (as it is getting closer to Halloween).

FACE⊱ ~Tableau Vivant~ – Andrea 003 @ LeLutkaNEW

This handsome gentleman is going to take the world by storm. This new applier has features in and of itself from several color eyebrow options (no brows is one also) and also freckles, warpaint, and guyliner for the goth or rocker crowd. I’m highly impressed with the initial work from Tableau Vivant for the LeLutka bento head as I feel they must have taken a lot of time and effort to get this first release just right.

BODYBelleza – Jake

SHIRT⊱ BlankLIne V-NeckT [Gray] @ TMDNEW

Who could forget my massive shopping trip to The Men’s Department this month. I have to confess this was not one of my initial purchases in my first trip there but I did find it appealing and went back for it once I knew I had something that would match up with it well. This shirt comes in sizes for Belleza, Signature, and TMP male bodies.

SHORTS⊱ :PC: Tulio Shorts ♯ Marketplace

I came across these shorts while browsing Flickr and I knew a little of the brand but not much else. The ad led me to the item on the marketplace which I then thought I’d like to use for the scene you saw above. Sizes available for this product consist of Adam, Aesthetic (two versions), Belleza, Signature, SLink Physique, and TMP male bodies. An included HUD gives you the ability to change the denim color, the belt color, and the color of the boxers.

BOOTS⊱ : CULT : Hipster Male Boot @ Hipster Men’s EventNEW

Personally I do not know a lot about this brand but after finding these boots and seeing some advertisements for other items that are also in other mainstream events going on right now, this is one to keep an eye on. I really like the look to these boots, they have the feel of combat boots with a little something extra. There is are 4 different shoe and sole colors to choose from which can be changed via the included HUD for many different combinations. Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature, and SLink Physique male body owners will be able to easily wear these.

IE – Counting Hands HUD ♯ NEW

If you’ve ever wanted to have your avatar pose with your hands counting down to something or just to signify a number then you’ll want to check out the Image Essentials “Counting Hands” HUD. This product will only effect the hands so you’ll have to use it with another pose of your choosing; the poses will also only work as long as you have the HUD attached for they will reset back to whatever they were defaulted to if the HUD is removed.

[#407] Sober

Mother Mary won’t you whisper
Something but what’s past and done…

Sober” – ToolListen

Grooming myself for the soon to becoming month of October (my favorite month of the year) I decided that I was going to go for something a little spooky. It just simply took finding the right place and placing a simple red balloon for effect and the idea for the theme somewhat fits the visuals (or at least I feel they do to an extent).

Could the person in the scene be in for some nightmares? It’s quite possible and if you’re looking for an interesting spot to explore or take photos and are into macabre scenes then right now is a good time to visit Cerulean Mountain. I just discovered the sim right before I was getting ready to get this scene set up and came to check it out. There are plenty of spots that I’ll look forward to coming back to for future scenes. Products from my sponsors in this look consist of a skin from Go&See that is at the latest round of Men Only Monthly and also once again I am featuring the Byzantium Eyes by MESANGE which can be found at the We Love Role-Play event.

You’ll be able to find a tax for the aforementioned Cerulean Mountain down in the credits below. Also there are items from events such as The Men’s Department and Savoir Fair. Just as usual I encourage that all of you grab demos before you make a purchase. You’ll be a much happier shopper that way and if you see me out there you’ll give me a thumbs up and say “thanks for the heads up fella” (Okay maybe not but it sounded good). That’s all I have for this adventure but be sure to check out upcoming entries they are sure to be exciting as I know I am excited about them already. Stay stylish with a song in your soul and I will catch you on the next one!

HAIRStealthic – Narcotic

This hair was originally at the August round of n21 but I didn’t manage to get it featured until after the event was over. I do like this brand and the fact they give you a choice of different styles in a HUD. Many color packs available to suit just about anyone’s preferences.

HEADCATWA – Daniel (Bento)
EYES⊱ MESANGE – Byzantium Eyes @ We Love RPNEW
EYEBROWS⊱ [theSkinnery] Hallford Brows @ TMDNEW
FACE⊱ Go&See * Christian * @ M.O.MNEW

It’s been quite a while since Kristyna Wikifoo released a male skin for the Go&See brand but as you can see we have a new one that just came out at this current round of Men Only Monthly. 4 different tones to choose from which you can apply to Omega compatible heads. The applier features brow or browless version with each of them also having a facial hair option to them as well. It’s a very handsome skin to take a look into. There is also a shape and eyebrow shaper included for CATWA Daniel which is what it was designed to look best for.

BODYBelleza – Jake

SHIRT7mad;Ravens Dread T-shirt

Nothing but good things can be said about the products that come from Poe Cross and 7mad;Ravens. I’m really happy that products are being released now that fit the Belleza body because for example these are the types of shirts I like to wear in the real world. They have a unique style and draw people’s attention (and not in a negative way). Other sizes that come with this shirt are for Signature and SLink Physique respectively.

JEANS::K:: Slim Fit Jeans Homme Medium
SLIDES⊱ ..::ILLI::.. Slide Sandals – Deluxe @ TMDNEW

The month of September has been a great one for finding items at TMD. While it might be the time in some places in the world to cease wearing footwear like this it’s not something that you need to worry much about (or when you are exploring strange places). These sandals come with a HUD to change the look of different parts of it from the sole to the straps. For those of you who own the Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature, SLink Physique or TMP then these will work for you and there is also an unrigged version for those classic avi’s out there.

GLASSESEarthStones Eyeglasses – The Yesterday

Rounded glasses are probably one of my favorite fashion accessories of all time. I am quite sure that these are patterned after the ones worn by John Lennon which is another reason why I like them so much. Upon clicking on the glasses you get a menu to change the color of the metal frames and also the tint of the lenses which makes for added customization.

Animosity – Quan (3) @ Savoir FairNEW

Here’s another new pose set from new brand, Animosity. This set has poses in which some are to be used with a car prop; there are also different versions of some of the poses as well for different sized avatars.

[#406] Something Just Like This

But she said “Where’d you wanna go?”
How much you wanna risk
I’m not looking for somebody with some super human gifts
Some superhero
Some fairy tale bliss
I just want something I can turn to
Somebody I can kiss…

Something Just Like This” – The Chainsmokers & ColdplayListen

Thought I’d have a little fun and felt really inspired by the pose that I am featuring in this entry so I decided to do a show a little nerd love and when I was churning my brain for a them it seemed the perfect one came to mind because of the different references through it of comic book characters that I’ve been a fan of since I was a youngster.

Last entry I was wearing the L&B Swear Low Tops and have enjoyed them so much I decided to put them into another look in a different color because they matched my outfit perfectly and being able to do that is a plus when it is sometimes hard finding the right footwear. Most importantly though I am featuring three items from my sponsors Image Essentials, {COLD-ASH} and MESANGE, the latter which are at The Men’s Department and We Love RP respectively.

Even though this is a male fashion blog as per usual I’ve also included the female credits for the adorable girl you see with me. I know that there are some gals that have viewed this site and maybe there are more than I know of but I try to be as consistent as possible. I’m going to leave you with those credits so I can get to working on the next adventure. Be well until our next encounter and stay stylish with a song in your soul.

HAIR⊱ Y-U: JASON “BLK” MENS @ TMDNEW

This hair is certainly unique which is what drew me to it. I think it reminds me of when you see someone get electrocuted in the cartoons and their hair goes every which way. That is what I would describe this hair as being. It’s really cool and unique as I already pointed out. There are several different color packs to choose from or you can get them all together in a FATPACK. It also comes with Classic Hairbases and Omega Hairbase appliers for the full look.

HEADCATWA – Daniel (Bento)
EYES⊱ MESANGE – Byzantium Eyes @ We Love RPNEW

Another exclusive from my sponsor MESANGE that’s out right now at the We Love RP event. These eyes are sold separately and there is not a FATPACK available at this time but there are 15 different colors to pick from. Each pack comes with the mesh eyeballs and a HUD to change the size of the pupil as well as OMEGA compatible appliers for those of you who have eyes that can use that styem.

EYEBROWS⊱ [theSkinnery] Hallford Brows @ TMDNEW
FACE⊱ Clef de Peau – Elias T1 @ TMDNEW
BODYBelleza – Jake

SHIRT//Ascend// Eric Bow tie Shirt – Print 5

This item is not brand new but it is recent within the last month or so and was a bit part of helping me create that nerd chic look. There are tons of styles for this button up tucked in shirt. It also has a matching bow tie that you can wear. Fitting for this item include Adam, Belleza, Signature, SLink Physique, and TMP mesh bodies.

PANTS⊱ {COLD-ASH} DEAN Chinos (CLASSIC PACK) @ TMDNEW

The latest from my sponsor {COLD-ASH} which has bestowed upon me this review copy. These classic casual slacks are an absolute perfect match for the Ascend shirt. Casual but cool these pants have 8 different colors to choose from and it also includes a belt that can be color changed via HUD as well so you can match accordingly. For those of you with Belleza, Signature, SLink Physique, and TMP mesh bodies, you’ll be able to give these stylish trousers a nice home in your closet.

GLASSESBalaclava – Mikael Glasses


IE – Goofy Nerds

This is such a fun pose and makes for a really lighthearted scene that I was able to put together. You can consider this pose two ways, it could be used as a couple pose but it also has the feel where you could find a really good friend to pair up with and snap some photos. All in all another fine quality work from my sponsors at Image Essentials.

[#405] My Love Is A Life Taker

This bottle of Steven’s awakens empty feelings
Like father, step father, the son is drowning in the flood

Say It Ain’t So” – WeezerListen

Some exciting things have been going on the last few days and I’ll get to those in a moment. It’s been a few since my last entry but sometimes I get these little lulls where either life gets in the way or my though process isn’t going the way I want and when I set up a scene or go to a location to photograph a scene I want it to be as close to what I’ve got in my head as possible.

It doesn’t always work that way.

There are a few repeat items from the last look but that’s mainly cosmetic stuff like skin and eyes. Those are things that often times do not change as much unless there is a new product out that you really like and want to feature.

Good fortune has found me at the n21 and FaMESHed events as I’ve been able to find multiple items to showcase which only usually lends itself to the male events I shop because I tend to find most of my things there. I am quite happy though to be able to display things from events you might not normally see get coverage. Branching out is definitely a highlight for me. Most people are familiar with the MadPea brand which holds hunts, and has different games that contain prizes and I took a venture to their sim and was able to find a great shot to work with so if there is anyone who is looking for an interesting spot to photograph then I definitely recommend MadPea City which you can find transportation too below.

One last thing before I leave you to browse the credits and that is I recently found out that I was nominated for a Bloggy Award. Which for me is a huge honor. The Bloggies is an award ceremony that will feature a who’s who of bloggers and I’ve been nominated in the category of “Best Humorous Blogger”. What makes this truly unique is that people can vote for their favorites so if there are any readers out there that follow the blog and enjoy it and want to help then you can cast your vote at The Bloggies Ballot Site (but keep in mind you have to be logged into a Google account to be able to vote. If you do show your love for These Conversations Kill, know that I will sincerely appreciate it and a big thank you goes out to those of my esteemed colleagues that nominated me to put me in this position.

With that I’m going to leave you with the credits from the scene and some of my thoughts on products that are new to this session. It’s been my privilege and see you again on the next adventure. Stay stylish with a song in your soul!

HAIR⊱ BURLEY – Craig @ n21NEW

When a hair brand releases a hair/hat combination and it looks awesome it gets me all sorts of amped up. I like wearing caps but most times they never work out with hair so I tend to just wear the cap with a base. Burley released this snapback mid-length hair combination. It comes with a style HUD that you are able to choose if the cap is facing the front of you or it is backwards. Also you can change the hat itself with a collection of colors and patterns. There are tons of color packs to choose from or you can purchase the full product for a pro-rated price. I myself picked up the variety pack which includes most of the main hair colors.

SHIRT⊱ Tonktastic – Cotton Tee (Bundles 5-8) @ TMDNEW

This item is a review copy that was sent to me by TonkTastic through my sponsorship with Hermony. Though Hermony is not doing official sponsors at the time he is gracious enough to send me things to review as I am a big fan of his brand and the work he’s done. This is the second time the two brands have collaborated on a shirt (the first being #1-4 that first appeared at the Man Cave event in August). 14 designs in each shirt that you can combine into one HUD if you choose to purchase them all and I encourage you to do so because these shirts are mega sweet. They come fitted for Aesthetic, Belleza, Classic Fitted Avatars, Signature, SLink Physique, and TMP mesh bodies.

SHORTS{COLD-ASH} CHINO Shorts
SHOES⊱ L&B Swear Low Top Sneakers – Male @ FaMESHedNEW

Lapointe & Bastchild’s Swear brand has been one of my favorites for quite a while. I’ve purchased shirts, jeans, you name it and I’ve gotten it because they are well made and fit really well. They’ve outdone themselves with their version of the timeless classic Low Top Sneakers. Included is a HUD with two pages of different color schemes to pick from that will give you plenty of wearability. For those of you with Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature and SLink Physique bodies you’ll be able to wear these kicks and show your cool factor wherever you are at. These are at the FaMESHed event until the end of the month!

Curse my enemies forever
Let’s slit our wrists and burn down something beautiful
This desperation is leaving me overjoyed
With fading lights that lead us past the lives that we’ve destroyed

No, It Isn’t” – +44Listen

Hello once again! I’m glad to have any recurring readers and those who are new to the site, I welcome you to a place were fashion and visual art collide in a virtual world. It’s been a few days again since my last entry but it seems that the outside world has been needing my attention. I wanted to quick say that the people affected by the recent Hurricanes (Harvey and Irma) are in my thoughts. It’s also been the 16th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on our country. So many things going on for so many people.

I threw some things together from my time spent at The Men’s Department which is at the mid point of the current round as well as Men’s Only Monthly that concludes its current cycle on the 15th, which means it would be the best time to take a shopping break after you take a look at what I have put together.

As I was looking around in my various resources of finding new locations to explore and take photos in, I came across Ash Falls. Upon landing there it didn’t take me long to find a spot almost right inside the landing point which means I’m going to have to return there again to look around more for spots that I can set up another scene.

At times I find it difficult to add things when it comes to these posts but I try to give the best insight I can. I hope that those of you out there that are readers find something useful here even if it is just one thing. I’m going to leave that where it is and usher you to the credits below and start getting ready for the next look and scene. Until then stay fashionable with a song in your soul.

HAIR⊱ Modulus – Cory @ Man CaveNEW

This preview comes from my sponsors at Modulus. Cory is a style that goes great with shaved hairbases or also parted ones. I would have to say if I were to classify it as anything it would be a cross between punk trends or slightly weening towards hipster. With 5 different color HUDs to choose from or the option to get all of them you are definitely going to look smooth if you choose this ‘do. You can grab this when the new round of Man Cave starts up on the 15th (delayed a few days with consideration for those who might be affected by the storms).

HAIRBASE/BEARD⊱ .:cheeky:. 3 Days Beard & Hairbase @ M.O.MNEW
HEADCATWA – Daniel (Bento)
EYES⊱ MESANGE – DragonnWish Eyes @ We Love RPNEW

This item also comes from a sponsor of mine, this time MESANGE. These eyes are one of 3 different offerings you can find at We Love RP and taking a close look at these eyes they are very appealing with 15 great iris textures to choose from. You can purchase them separately or get them all together with an included HUD that you can use with Omega and LeLutka compatible appliers. If you do not have either of those do not worry the mesh versions are still in the package!

EYEBROWS⊱ [theSkinnery] Hallford Brows @ TMDNEW

Known primarily for their skins, this time [theSkinnery] is taking a shot at eyebrow appliers for the male side of things. There are 5 different styles to choose from, in which I chose the first style as it is what appealed to me most. It wasn’t super thin or super wild…just right by my standards and I am not at all disappointed with how it looks. These will work well with just about any skin and the Catwa appliers give you several different brow color options along with tintable white so if you need to match a certain color it’s easily achieved.

FACE⊱ Clef de Peau – Elias T1 @ TMDNEW

The most recent release in the CdP skin line, Elias comes in 4 different tones (1-4) and while normally I go with T2 I felt like taking a leap and going a tone lighter just to see what it would look like and I’m not really disappointed. I’m not much for the more tan tones because I’m just not a sun worshipper or spend lots of time outside so it would be odd to have a tan for me. The package includes not only the skin but eyebrow and body shapes for Catwa heads Daniel and Shaheen for you to choose from. Of course you’re always welcome to use your own as I did for this scene.

BODYBelleza – Jake

JACKET⊱ etham – Letterman Jacket – Camo @ FaMESHedNEW

It’s not often that I wear camo themed items in photos but it seemed to work out for the outfit I was putting together. This jacket is pretty solid and finding things that fit the Belleza body is a great thing (and it is also become more of a regular occurence). The base of the jacket is regular standard jacket material but the sleeves appear to be leather based which makes this jacket even cooler. It comes with a HUD to change the built in shirt so that you can mix it up a little bit. Sizes also included here are NX-Nardcotix, Signature, SLink Physique, Standard Fitmesh, and also TMP.

JEANS⊱ ::GB:: Cotton Stripe Pants @ M.O.MNEW

When I first came across these I thought they were jeans but as I closely inspected them I found that they were as the item describes, cotton stripe pants. They come available in Black, Blue (which is shown) as well as White and you can purchase them separately or together for a bargain price. I like the fit of these jeans on the Belleza body and am happy that Gabriel is now including them in their products as I’m very much a fan. Included are sizes for Signature and TMP. Sadly there is not one for SLink included in these which may disappoint those who have the Physique body and like Gabriel products.

SHOES⊱ OHeMO – Joel Sneakers @ M.O.MNEW

Sneakers…what can I say? I love sneakers and have a hard time saying no whenever I see a nice pair at an event. Men Only Monthly had several pairs that I enabled myself to pick up and these bad boys rock. I purchased the full pack and was treated to a HUD that I could change different parts of the sneaker with many different color swatches. Customization is a plus for me as I like to have control over what colors I am wearing if at all possible. While I am not largely familiar with this brand, I feel that with the quality of these sneakers I would encourage you all (as well as myself) to give them a deeper look. For you mesh body wearers it comes with sizes for Adam, Belleza, Signature, and SLink.

Animosity – Stephan (04) @ M.O.MNEW

Poses are what bring our creations more depth and life and I know that I have said on more than one occasion (I repeat myself far often than I would like to admit) that I always like taking a look at new pose makers in the world. Animosity is a fairly new brand and is partnered up with Imitation (a newer brand as well). This is one of two pose packs that have been released at Men Only Monthly. I like the style that this brand has to offer and seems that they also are making poses that are not as familiar as you sometimes do so out there. I realize that you can only move an avatar so many different ways but it is always refreshing to see something outside of that and I believe this brand has a great start.

After a small extended holiday weekend I am back with another look but this time I’m pretty much geeking out and doing the nerd thing. I enlisted some help from a friend (in this case victim) and got right to work. I think this would have definitely worked if I had placed it somewhere closer to the San Diego Comic-Con but not everything was in place at that time. I found some extra pieces create this idea as it was in a concept stage for a while. I feel like the theme holds up really well with the visuals albeit rather creepy.

After taking a look through some of my other work, it is safe to say that I have a bit of an obsession for a certain villain in the comics universe and most importantly the Clown Prince of Crime or in this case the Agent of Chaos version. I like to try to find ways to incorporate the visual when I can or come across items that inspire it as you’ll see in the credits below.

Several items are from the Marketplace but were integral parts of putting this scene together. I’ve also managed to get the credits for what my victim was wearing (though not everything is scene in the photos and for that I apologize). Of most of the comic inspired ones I have done, I feel that this one is certainly a favorite and came together as I had hoped. Now I am going to leave you with the credits below so you can maybe do some shopping of your own for photography or role-play needs. Be well and until the next adventure stay fashionable with a song in your soul.

HEADCATWA – Shaheen (Bento)
FACESTRAY DOG – MARVIN – TONE 02
TEETH⊱ Mad’ – Dirty Mouth [Tongue+Teeth] ♯ Marketplace

What more can be said other than that an insane criminal is likely to have bad teeth. I wanted to get as close to accurate as I could in this scene with the character from the film. Scouring the marketplace I came across this applier for CATWA and after applying it, I was well on my way to acing the look.

OUTFIT⊱ *IS* Joker ♯ Marketplace

One of the most accurate renditions of this attire that I have seen out there on the grid and on the market. I really like this outfit and the fact that it is fitted for all major male mesh bodies makes it that much greater for fans like me out there. The one thing that was not 100% film accurate were the shoes but I cannot honestly tell you how many people would stare at shoes so that definitely gets a pass. Everything else is very spot on and it comes with a HUD with a makeup applier as well (One for Catwa, and also one for Omega respectively).

BACKDROP⊱ ISUKA – We’re All Mad Backdrop ♯ Marketplace

This backdrop is simply amazing. I had seen it around in various places but was unable to purchase it during the event that it was first a part of. I went to their main location and did not seem to find it but luckily I was able to catch it on the Marketplace and my scene was pretty much set. If you like using backdrops in your photos you seriously need to check out this store, they also sell really great tattoos as well. You’ll thank me later!

HEAD[GA.EG] Evan ♯ NEW

Even though this item is not mine, I can give a little bit of commentary on it. This is the second male bento head release by the [GA.EG] brand and it seems a little smoother than the previous one which was very rugged and more matured. This face is quite handsome and can definitely turn heads (when it’s not being disfigured that is).

MAKEUPZibska ~ Ballard Makeup

This makeup that was part of the THEREAFTER event (I own this as well but didn’t get the opportunity to blog it…so it’s good that someone else helped me with it) and is very well a good fit for the theme of my scene. Terrorizing people and giving them a bit of a makeover is exactly what an Agent of Chaos would do; I think this would also be the result of it.

BODYSLink – Physique MALE Mesh Body Release 1.2

SHIRTN-Uno – Victor Top // N 9
JEANSN-Uno – Victor Jeans // N 9

I passed these items on as a gift for helping me out for this shoot. They were part of a Gacha from the Men Only Monthly event the round before this current one. They only fit Signature and SLink bodies so I figured that since the victim primarily wears the SLink Physique body that it would work better for him.
