[#502] Fourth Of July

It was the Fourth of July
You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks
That went off too soon
And I miss you in the June gloom, too
It was the Fourth of July
You and I were, you and I were fire, fire, fireworks
I said I’d never miss you
But I guess you never know
May the bridges I have burned light my way back home
On the Fourth of July

Fall Out Boy, ♫Fourth Of July

As I sit down to write out this blog most people might have a sparkler in their hand and or a beverage of their choice celebrating America’s day of independence. It has a lot of meaning and also different meanings to people here in the US and beyond the parties and family get together’s, it means that we are a free country but with that freedom our nation has paid many prices for that. So before I get into the rest of this posting, I’d like to thank all the people that have served our country past, present, or in the near future and also to the families of those whose loved ones lost their lives defending all the beliefs we stand upon. Being able to live without complete fear or terror is something that none of us should ever take for granted.

Now that I am done with the super serious part of this post I can get into the actual blog itself and the scene I shot. The other day I was talking with one of my longtime friends and they suggested that I do a photo around this time using the song “Fourth Of July” by Fall Out Boy for a soundtrack. I couldn’t quite remember the song so I went back and listened to it and some ideas came through my head as to how I could do it and going through some of my event items and other purchases I pulled together a cool scene that I was able to do right in my own home without having to go find a location.

While I am hitting the Pose Fair super hard right now I am featuring another gacha set but this time from [Phantom Animations] whose items I have blogged in the past from a different event. The set is called “Just A Selfie” and as the name implies offers poses which include a phone as if you are taking or looking at photos on it; I was able to use the pose without having to adjust my shape for it which is sometimes necessary.

[Phantom Animations] Just A Selfie features:

  • 10 poses (8 common, 1 RARE, 1 Ultra RARE)
  • 5 male poses (1 RARE)
  • 4 female poses
  • 1 couples pose (Ultra RARE)
  • 2 different cell phone props included for use
  • Currently available at the Pose Fair until July 31st

Also here is the Gacha key for those of you who are interested in the rest of the set!

Phantom Animations - Just A Selfie Gacha Pose Fair July 2018

The Men Jail is set to open in just 4 days (on the 8th) and I’m already diving into the products that have come through to event bloggers. For this scene I picked out the “[Sweatband Set] MVP” by PBM (aka Pee Bee McMillan) as I was still wearing the Gianni body and this product was only fitted for Signature products it made the most sense to me and helped me put together a sporty type look.

PBM [Sweatband Set] MVP features:

  • Left and Right Armbands
  • Left and Right Wristbands
  • Plain and MVP designs
  • Color change HUD (10 colors)
  • Fits Signature Geralt and Gianni
  • Available at The Men Jail starting July 8th

Modulus has been known in the past for their clothing and skins and facial hairs, known more now for their cool hair and accessories…they are now trying their hand at something different. It was something the people asked for and they responded and have finally released body hair as a part of “What Men Want”. I figured I would try this out as most avi’s that go shirtless are usually waxed and do not have hair whatsoever. Putting this on made me feel a bit more like a normal guy instead of a magazine model.

It never surprises me when Chucky Hollak tries something new because I know that when he does that he’s going to ace it and it only makes me wonder what is next for him and the Modulus brand. You just never know what you might see hitting event shelves or his main store shelves.

Modulus Body Hair Set 1 features:

  • Black/Brown or Tintable options
  • Regular or Heavy versions
  • Omega appliers for both Belleza and Signature bodies

During one of my stops to Hipster Men’s Event I couldn’t leave without purchasing one of the latest sneaker products from Dossier. I remember them before from their mesh beard days and it’s nice to see the brand branch out and try something different and even though I have similar pairs of shoes like these from other stores it still wouldn’t stop me because it’s sold completely as a FATPACK and also it has color options that my other shoes do not have. Everyone likes to think that only gals have shoe addictions well this fella does as well!

Dossier Sneakers Virtuous features:

  • Fatpack includes Texture HUD
  • 12 colors (6 plain, 6 pattern)
  • Belleza (Jake)
  • Signature (Geralt and Gianni)
  • Maitreya for the ladies
  • Unrigged for classic avatars

The Men’s Department opens it’s doors for the July round tomorrow and I was able to get my hands one on of the items from the event to aid in my look. As you can probably tell over the many blogs I’ve posted that I’m very big into having facial hair and without guessing an exact number I would say a good third or more of the posts on this site feature me having it as a part of my look. Birth is releasing a stubble called “Bristly Beard” and I am a big fan of it already from the moment I looked at my face and I have a feeling that this item will do well for guys that like just a bit of facial hair without having a lumberjack beard so this is definitely for that kind of person.

Birth Bristle Beard features:

  • Catwa and Omega HUD appliers
  • White/Tintable, Black, Blonde, Brown and Red tones

Hopefully now that all the fireworks are done I can go and relax and recharge my batteries so I can start fresh and get to work my look and flesh out ideas for my next blog post. I’m definitely also going to take a trip to The Men’s Department and get a better look at all the new items for sale at the event and see what ends up coming home with me. I hope everyone has had a great Independence Day as well as stayed cool and safe. That is all I have for this one but until our paths cross again,
