[#427] Swing Life Away

I’ve been here so long, I think that it’s time to move
The winter’s so cold, summer’s over too soon
Let’s pack our bags and settle down where palm trees grow

Swing Life Away♫ – Rise Against

It’s not very often that I actually shoot any scenes from my own house but I didn’t really feel like using a backdrop or finding a location to set up in so I came up with an idea that allowed me to stay where I was at. I enjoyed how I was able to combine good ambience with lighting and of course my instant go to LUMIPro. Personally I feel like this is a small victory because it was fun to come up with and it was not stressful to put together.


When I first started putting this together, I didn’t have a song that was an inspiration as often times I do before going into setting up a scene. As I was thinking about various genre’s of music I knew I wanted something laid back; I almost automatically recalled “Swing Life Away”. It had the right feel and helped me with getting the best visual with the look and poses I combined.


As I was taking photos from different angles from close and further away, I found myself liking a majority of them so for this entry I added an extra shot I found favorable in addition to my main “storytelling” shot and the usual two featured product close-ups.


Brand partners that I am featuring in this entry’s look consist of Avi-Glam (eyes) and Image Essentials (Poses). I managed to go out and do a little shopping outside of the search for bargains during the Black Friday events and checked out a new event called District 23 (not to be confused with the District 20 event that I have intentions of covering) as well as another stop to The Men’s Department.


Now that you’ve had the chance to look at what I’ve put into this look, I’ll leave you with the style credits (which are as complete as they possibly can). I believe these stores and events have something for just about every fella out there and even some of the gals as well. Enjoy your next shopping excursion and remember to pick up demos before deciding on a purchase as there is nothing worse then buyer’s remorse (and I know we’ve all been there). Thanks for joining me for this adventure and I will see you again soon.

Onto the next conversation…

HAIR+elua+ Pippa Black Pack

During the course of my Black Friday shopping excursion I decided to see what +elua+ had going on as far as hairstyles considering I have not visited the shop in some time. I did not find anything in the regular hairstyles but I did see the gacha machine that this hair is from and played it to be able to get a black pack of this hair and with a little size adjusting it was perfect on my head. Personally I like having longer hair on my pixels during what I would consider the fall/winter season even though some places don’t really observe because it is unnecessary (we are pixels after all ha!)

HEADLeLutka – Andrea v 3.1

EYES⊱ AG. Hope Eyes – Aqua @ Shiny ShabbyNEW

Eyes are often the best feature on a person because when you look into someone’s eyes it has been said that you can look into their soul; this new set of eyes like previous Avi-Glam releases does not disappoint. 24 different iris colors (including the one you can see a close-up of in the product shot above) that come in 3 sizes. These are excellent for everyday wear and for those of you who may not be bloggers or photographers could easily be a great permanent eye to wear. Mesh eyes are included in the package and a FATPACK is also available.

COMPATIBLE With: CATWA, OMEGA, and regular (for included mesh eyes) applier HUDs.

TATTOO⊱ { Speakeasy } Storm Tattoo @ District 23NEW

Very seldom do I wear or feature body ink as I’ve expressed before in previous entries but it’s not for lack of liking them. Most of the time it’s for the fact I wear products that would generally cover them up and would defeat the purpose of wearing them. When I was putting this current look together I saw an add for this tattoo and knew that I would not be wearing anything on the upper half of my body. The tattoo comes in three different opacity types (Fresh, Worn, and Faded) and you can get it at District 23 along with other types of ink and poses to enjoy.

COMPATIBLE With: Omega, Signature and TMP applier HUDs.

PANTS⊱ AITUI – Sweat Pants – Loyalty, Grey @ TMDNEW

Only a few more days left for the current round of TMD to get your hands on these sweatpants by AITUI. There are several different designs and colors available at the event but they are definitely great for just lazing around your dwelling while you are AFK or just relaxing doing nothing. I think these are really cool and very well made.

COMPATIBLE With: Belleza, Signature, SLink and TMP male bodies.

IE – Daily Things (b) (1 / 3) @ Designer CircleNEW

I really do enjoy taking poses that are not meant normally for males and putting them to work for me. This great set of poses (5 total with mirrors) also comes with two pose props (a phone and a magazine). The poses depict motions some of us make in our normal routines which is why to me the name of the set is appropriate. You can pick this up at the Designer Circle event which is open until the 2nd of December so there is still time…hurry!
