And we always say, it would be good to go away, someday
But if there’s nothing there to make things change
If it’s the same for you I’ll just hang
Matchbox Twenty, ♫Hang♫
In my previous post I spoke about how I didn’t have a soundtrack to back the post until after I had finished taking the photos and getting everything ready. This post is quite different because I had the soundtrack and idea before I even started to put the scene together so it was an easier session from start to finish; it’s also great that I get to feature one of my newest brands to join up with These Conversations Kill.
Kokoro Poses is now a part of the brands that I have the privilege and honor to blog for. I have some experience with their work from events such as Pose Fair and also The Men Jail to name a few. They have been around a while which is great because they are established and are known to be good at what they do (which is making poses of course). The last few poses before I became a blogger for them also prompted me to apply and I hope that I can do them justice.
Backtracking a little bit here and going back to how soundtracks relate to how I put together my scenes for blogs is usually pretty simple, I take the mood of a song or simply something in their lyrics and apply it to the photo that I’m taking and fashion the atmosphere to fit as best as possible. Also finding settings that might match the overall tone helps too but doesn’t always happen as bloggers have to make do with what we have access to.
Asuma is the latest pose pack from Kokoro Poses that depects smoking actions and while I’m not telling everyone to pick up a cigarette or voluntarily smoke (as I do not in the real world) but I really like the mood that these poses produce. There is a verse in the song I’m using that talks about smoking a cigarette outside and staying until it is gone and not only is that being considerate I feel but also that it opens up more of a dialogue for contemplating something heavy. The cigarette is kind of a crutch to help alleviate a crisis.
Kokoro Poses Asuma Pose Pack features:
- Bento enabled poses (proper viewer required to use)
- 6 poses (including mirrors)
- Poses 1 and 6 available only to the FATPACK
- Mesh cigarette included for each pose and mirror
- Exclusively @ Hipster Men’s Event until Sep. 16th!
A few days ago FaMESHed opened it’s doors back up for another round and for fans of Modulus there is extra reasons to be excited about this round with two different new hairstyles available to be purchased at the event. I am wearing “Julian” which is a short, wispy style (and sometimes my descriptions for hair styles aren’t the best so you’ll have to excuse me.) I chose this because I wanted to make sure that there wasn’t any strands of hair covering my face as you’ll see for my alternate photo close-up of the eyes I am wearing.
Modulus makes it easy to find a hairstyle that works with any kind of look you are going for or mood you are in with varieties of length to choose from; I highly doubt there is anyone who hasn’t bought a hair from this store but if not there are many events you can find them in and there is bound to be something for you so I recommend them highly.
Modulus Julian FATPACK features:
- 100% original mesh alpha hair
- 40 hair colors to choose from (5 color HUDs)
- Left and Right hair choices
- Integrated color picker within HUD for added customization
The Men Jail is also back for a fresh new round of goodies for the fellas to take a look at and over the last few rounds I have enjoyed being able to blog the facial hairs made by the store, Purfect. Most of them are mesh constructs but this round they have a beard applier which after I added to my face I really liked how it looked and gave me a more mature appearance (as opposed to without it).
Beards are definitely one of my favorite things to put into my looks because I always feel strange when I take photos without one that is unless I’m wearing some kind of face paint or makeup. Everyone has their own thoughts about their appearance and I’m one of those people who tends to not go without some kind of facial hair whether it be stubble or a full blown mountain man beard.
Purfect Beard 022 FATPACK features:
- Catwa, LeLutka and Omega applier HUDs
- 3 different styles to choose from
- 6 different hair colors
- Exclusively @ The Men Jail from Sep 08th to the 28th
Cold-Ash is one of my favorite clothing stores on the grid and has been since they first came on the scene several years ago; to me they are to casual as what Deadwool are for dress clothes. That is a high compliment I feel because both brands respectively kill it with their products and whenever something new from Cold-Ash comes out I really go crazy in my mind with excitement to try and find the right situation to be able to blog it.
The “ELLIOT” short sleeve shirt is an untucked button down shirt with the first few buttons opened for added effect and even more sex appeal. I feel like anyone who wears this will definitely get some added attention. It pairs perfectly with the “Okauchee” pants from Lenox. This outfit as I’ve put it together was meant to be super casual and not super dressy.
Segueing right into the “Okauchee” pants from Lenox which was a smooth transition I have to admit, these slacks (or pants however you wish to go with that) are slightly rolled up at the bottom so you could wear ankle (or desert) boots or do what I did and show off your socks and oxfords (which are also by Lenox fyi). This outfit is a nice break from t-shirts and jeans or shorts that I’ve been wearing a lot because I do tend to wear those things a lot.
Here’s some details about the Cold-Ash and Lenox items!
Cold-Ash ELLIOT short sleeved shirt features:
- 100% original mesh
- 6 colors sold individually
- 12 colors changeable via HUD (6 colors FATPACK bonus)
- Fitted sizes for Belleza (Jake), Signature (Geralt & Gianni), SLink Physique and TMP mesh bodies
- Exclusively @ TMD until September 30th
Lenox Okauchee Pants FATPACK features:
- 100% original mesh
- 11 fabric colors changeable via HUD
- Fitted sizes for Aesthetic, Belleza (Jake) and Signature (Geralt & Gianni) male bodies
- Exclusively @ Uber until the 22nd of September!
For this post I decided to do a bit of a test with a secondary photo with a full outfit shot. With the help of green screening (which I do not use often) and a nice background pattern, I am also showing a close-up of one of the latest eye releases from Go&See. “Ares” is a really detailed set and there and all of the options that it comes with are all very cool.
When it comes to eyes there really isn’t much to say or describe other than that I recommend them very highly and many of the Go&See eye products are good for rpg’s and also for every day use.
Go&See Ares Eyes features:
- Appliers for CATWA and Genus Project eyes
- Mesh eyes included
- 10 styles to choose from
- Exclusively @ Men Only Monthly until Sep. 15th
That about does it for this blog entry but I finally was able to share my exciting news about landing a new brand partner and featuring them for the first time as a blogger. I also was able to include some of my other favorite brands that I blog for as well together to create a look that I am truly pleased with as that is how it should be.
More to come from my favorite events and brands so be sure to check back to see what I’m up to as you never know what you’ll find on these pages. Time to go enjoy the rest of this weekend and begin staging my next idea. Until our paths cross again, onto the next conversation…
