“And we’re breaking out the good champagne
We’re sitting pretty on the gravy train
And when we sing every sweet refrain repeats…“
“Easy Street” – The Collapsable Hearts Club ♫Listen♫
For my second Halloween post I thought I would bring some people back down memory lane (which may make them a bit terse) by choosing a theme that was a part of one of the most mind shattering moments of season 7 of The Walking Dead. The dreaded song that kept repeating over and over to torture and try to break Daryl Dixon. After the episode aired the song went viral and probably not for the better. So in my own crazy way I’m bringing it back to remind you!
While I probably should have saved the theme for an actual zombie apocalypse type scene, I just couldn’t pass up how quirky the song was for the feel I was putting together for this shoot. With a crazy murderous fowl on the loose, it certainly made a great combination in my mind.
For this session, I took a lot of different photos with various angles and lighting but what you are seeing on this blog entry are the best of the best after minor post-processing. I don’t usually try to overdo anything because then it completely changes the composition of what was originally intended.
Avi-Glam has kindly provided two different products (a skin and eyes) for me to feature and give my thoughts on. The entry also features many items from the current (and still open) TMD event which has about a week or so left before they close it off to begin switching things out for the next round.
This entry also features goods from Men Only Monthly and The Epiphany which has some really great Gacha machines to play with exclusive items to collect before they are gone for good once the round is over.
I hope you’ve enjoyed checking out my second submission for the Halloween 2017 series of photos. I still have more to come in the next few posts (including a collaboration that I am extremely excited about). Another adventure in the books and please be sure to check out the styling credits below. Get your shopping on and I’ll see you again soon.
Onto the next conversation…
6 new eye colors are available for you to take a peak at during the newly opened round of Shiny Shabby. The applier HUD (and I’ll list compatibility here in a second) with some of the eyes gives you the option to choose which eye you wish to color or you can apply it to both eyes as well as what pupil size. Mixing and matching is possible which I think can be unique in many instances.
Compatible with: Catwa, LeLutka, and Omega (as well as included mesh eyeballs)
⊰FACE⊱ AG. Noah Skin
This skin is for the LeLutka Andrea bento head. Noah has a youthful appearance with 8 skin tones to suit most people’s requirements. The applier HUD has 3 brow color options (along with a non-brow option). There is the option to buy an accompanied shape as well if you choose not to use your own.
⊰BODY⊱ Belleza – Jake
⊰SWEATER⊱ Lenox Wool Sweater @ TMD ♯ NEW
A very nicely detailed sweater which is something I’d definitely wear in the colder months as I am from a part of the US that tends to get some rather special weather during the winter months. Even though in the virtual world hot/cold doesn’t tend to factor, a lot of people treat their surroundings just like their own real locations. The cool thing about this sweater is you can wear it along with the coat that is also available at TMD this month.
Compatible with: Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature and TMP.
⊰PANTS⊱ ::K:: Levi Jodhpurs Herringbone Tweed-Gray @ TMD ♯ NEW
Sometimes not featuring a product right away can be a good thing. I had not used these for anything right when I bought them at the opening of this months TMD. I received a message with an update from Kitt Ragu himself and we had a nice little conversation. It’s those kinds of things that will be a reason that I will continue purchasing and blogging ::K:: branded items. Kitt took the time to personally send out the update to those who purchased them. Such a class act!
These pants come with two types (one of them a shorter leg length for use with boots I am imagining) and also has a belt as well.
Compatible with: Belleza, Signature and SLink.
⊰BOOTS⊱ ::ROC:: Martens Boot! Mid
⊰BACKDROP⊱ taikou / gaien market backdrop
This backdrop scene is really a phenomenal build, with great details and textures. It was a part of the previous months round of Kustom9 and I purchased it towards the end of the round so I was not able to use it before they closed it to begin setting up for this month’s round. Personally I feel like it helped build the kind of gritty late night atmosphere or someone closing up shop for the night only to be met by a creepy presence.
⊰JACKET⊱ COMPLEX / JACKET / W-B @ M.O.M ♯ NEW
This lightweight hooded parka comes in 6 different colors (worn in gray color). Two bonus colors are included in a fatpack that also has a HUD in which you can change the color of various parts of the jacket to your desired look.
Compatible with: Belleza, Signature and SLink male mesh bodies.
⊰JEANS⊱ INVICTUS – Button Jeans – Jeans @ M.O.M ♯ NEW
Nicely made basic roll-up jeans that come in 6 denim colors (which the model is wearing the regular blue denim color). A fatpack is also available if you like all of the colors and want to get them at a discounted price.
Compatible with: Belleza, Signature, SLink, and TMP male mesh bodies. Also included is a regular fitmesh size for classic avatars.
⊰SHOES⊱ -NOeditiON- SuperStar – Yellow
⊰MASK⊱ *katat0nik* (yellow) Cockface Mask @ The Epiphany ♯ NEW
When I first saw the advertisment for this Gacha at The Epiphany, I thought it was one of the oddest and most unique things I’ve come across in a while and just had to find a way to incorporate it into a scene. The particular head I used reminds me a lot of the well known to baseball fans “San Diego Chicken” mascot…even though it is meant to be a rooster, it’s still fowl (or is that foul? I kid I kid).
⊰BAT⊱ Inkside – Barbed Wire Baseball Bat ♯ Marketplace
This mesh prop comes with an automatic shoulder lean pose but it also works with other poses that includes baseball bats. This item is clearly inspired by “Lucille” the she-devil sidekick to the nefarious Negan of The Walking Dead. This was a pretty cool marketplace find to help pull together a strange scene.

Del May – Kneel Pose
