[#419] Carry Your Torches

Bring on your forces of nature
Bring on the storm that’s raging
And if you get lost in the shadows
There’s a fire inside you
Be the light that guides you

Torches” – X AmbassadorsListen

This scene was originally meant to be done as a part of my Halloween series but as fate would have it the timing was moved back due to several reasons. I usually post things that are a bit October like all throughout the year as the spirit of it doesn’t confine me to just one month and I firmly believe that.

For this scene I went on location and took my photos at the Stars Hollow In Omnia Paratus, which is maintained by a good friend who has opened it to the public until the 11th of November. If you are looking for a great fall place to take photos and explore then this place is for you. There is even a haunted house section still up for those of you who want to do some post Halloween celebration such as I have. The taxi for this location is below in the credits section.

In this entry there are promotional copies of items provided by Avi-Glam, Cold-Ash, and Go&See. I think putting these items together really set the tone for the overall feeling of the scene and I hope you agree.

The Avi-Glam and Cold-Ash items are available right now at the current round of Men Only Monthly, which runs through the 15th of November. There are many great items for your closet at the event and I encourage you to invest some time to take a look.

Go&See’s item was a part of The Dark Style Fair 5 which was open until the 4th of November and this entry was in 3/4 stage completion and was meant to be posted before the end of the event to which I sincerely apologize. Things sometimes are out of our control such as this was. I am also providing the taxi below to their store location as event releases are moved to the store within a day or so of the said event ending.

Stay tuned for more coverage from Men Only Monthly as well as new monthly rounds of The Men’s Department and FaMESHed. From some of the previews of items I’ve seen across social media, I’ll be looking to dig into some of them to put my personal spin on.

Thank you to those of you who came to visit the site from wherever you may have seen the link on social media or by word of mouth. I hope to see you again for the next adventure!

Onto the next conversation…

HEADCATWA – Daniel
EYESGo&See * Hurt * @ The Dark Style Fair 5NEW (Ends 11/4)

One of the things I can count on when it comes to Go&See when they release a set of eyes is that they are going to be thought out and creative. These Catwa only appliers give the appearance that the wearer has been possibly punched or is suffering from a sort of disease. There are several ways it can be taken. There are four different colors to choose from and excellent for setting up creepy or apocalyptic scenes as well as for use in role-play situations.

FACE⊱ AG. Connor Skin @ M.O.MNEW

Avi-Glam is back with a new face for Catwa heads, which for this I am using Daniel as I believe that is what they had in mind for use with this facial skin. I feel like it has a bit of a youthful ethnic look which is becoming increasingly present in-world as it should. Diversity is what helps everyone have a more unique identity and ensure we are not all looking like robots on an assembly line.

SHIRT{COLD-ASH} VINCENT Shirt&Waistcoat @ M.O.MNEW

There are so many good things I could say about this shirt/vest combination but if I did you would check out from all the rambling so I’ll keep it brief. I really had this Van Helsing or Johnathan Harker vibe with this that essentially the scene I photographed is like one of them out in the darkness looking for creatures of the night. The included HUD has 3 different colors for the shirt and 6 different choices for the vest.

One thing I would have done differently (that does not take away from the value of the product) would be to come out with more choices for colors in both the shirt and vest. The product is great even with the lack of more colors and maybe it is better the way it is. Perhaps having too many choices would detract from the product.

Compatible with: Belleza, Signature, SLink, and TMP.

Aside from wardrobe and setting, one of the most important pieces to the scene was this pose and prop set. The lantern helped set the visual of walking vulnerable in the darkness searching for the unknown a lot easier to take from concept to finality. This was a Fifty Linden Friday item a few weeks ago and I had missed out on it then but the regular price of it when I did purchase was not bad and is definitely something that can be used again in future works.
