[#532] And I Inherited My Health

And I swallow these capsules, to regain my grip.
And I swallowed myself sick. And I inherited my health.

36 Crazyfists, ♫Bloodwork

The whole month of October always inspires me to do strange photos (even though I do them all year round but they are extra fun in October). I’m trying my hand at being a neighborhood Jason as opposed to terrorizing a camp. Running around and scaring people left and right in some super short shorts with only a hockey mask and a machete. Seems like it might be a cold time with there being a chill in the air now but when your adrenaline is running on all cylinders it could be -10 degrees and you could be as warm as a Sherpa blanket.

Speaking of Machete’s, Attitude has a really sweet pose set (not sweet as in candy or relationship of course) at Pose Fair. This means that anyone who goes to the event can check out this set and mirror a psychopath in their photography. With 5 differing poses and an included machete (one for each hand to fit the pose that best goes with it) Halloween photography will get that much better as it certainly inspired me along with a visit to Missing Mile, a long standing rp sim that is so well put together an photogenic in a creepy way.

Attitude Machete Pose Pack features:

  • Bento enabled poses (Bento required viewer to use as intended)
  • Mesh machete’s included (left and right hand)
  • 5 different poses (static and poseball versions)
  • Exclusively @ Pose Fair until October 31st (Halloween!)

What psycho slasher isn’t caked with blood? You’re going to have to find me one that doesn’t because every single one I’ve ever seen on TV or on film is always bloody in some capacity which is why I am using a really good blood splatter applier from Revolver Tattoo called “Halloween Blood”. I really am a fan of how it helped bring my buff slasher together and helps show how much he got into his work.

Finding blood appliers can be hit and miss but this one was definitely scratched that itch and gave that extra added something to the look and also helped create the scene along with a good surrounding and also good lighting on top of that.

Revolver Tattoo Halloween Blood features:

  • Appliers for Belleza (Jake), Signature (Geralt and Gianni) and SLink Physique male bodies
  • Exclusively @ The Men Jail until October 28th

Lastly most everyone knows about The Arcade’s Halloween Pop-Up round that is going on right now but just in case you don’t…they have a special round with machines centering on the ooky and spooky. It began on the 6th of October and will last until the 31st of October (which as you know is Halloween woohoo) and so far it’s been a hit because many people who have been trying to get in to play the machines have had a hard time due to their only being one sim for this special event instead of three.

One of the machines that I thought was super cool was the Versov machine which has an assortment of masks, a few knives, a machete, some severed arms and two different pairs of shoes (one limited Bloody version and a non bloody FATPACK with an assortment of colors). I knew after I ended up with the bloody shoes and a mask that looks similar to the classic movie killer I just needed a few more things and a look would be complete.

I added the blood applier and threw on the “Gerard” shorts by LOB and wandered around the streets of Missing Mile to find a location and the rest as they say is history. There is a policy of not going into houses on the sim to photograph and I remain respectful to that so I stood right at the threshold of a house that looked like it was at a good spot and went to work.

Versov Maskov v.9 and FEAROV Bloody RARE Sneakers features:

  • 100% Original Mesh
  • 75L to play machine to potentially win
  • Resizeable via clicking item (Mask)
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake) and Signature (Gianni – Worn in pic)
  • Exclusively available @ The Arcade Halloween Pop Up Round until Oct. 31st

With the spirit of the month coursing through me I can assure you that there will definitely be more photos similar to this coming down the road and could be as soon as the very next blog post but check back just to see what I’ll have going on because I feel that I’m doing some of my best work as of late and am enjoying sharing it with whomever sees it.

Now it’s back to the brainstorming and putting together the next look but until our paths might cross again, onto the next conversation…

[#531] I’ll Carry You

But you gotta hold on
You gotta be strong
Right here with me if it all goes wrong
To keep you from harm
Away in my arms
Steer you away from the storm

David Cook, ♫Carry You

For some people Autumn has arrived and for others it is approaching (there is a bit of a latent summer happening in my part of the woods). I thought that I might take one of the poses that is a part of Pose Fair and put it to good use as I visited Netherwood once again. I wasn’t sure if the wonderful sim was going to be around much longer so I did not want to waste another moment going there and getting this really intimate moment photographed.

Ardent Poses has several couples poses as a part of Pose Fair and they are all equally wonderful but I chose “Don’t Let Go” because it gelled with the soundtrack I chose for this blog post. Maybe I’m not exactly carrying but I am holding my lady close so that must count for something right? Plus I feel my main visual shot has elements from the song in it as well.

Ardent Poses Don’t Let Go features:

  • 2 person bento pose (bento viewer required to use properly)
  • Two different versions included
  • Exclusively @ Pose Fair until October 31st

RKKN (a project from Keon Xenga of RK Poses Fame) has released a really great three-piece outfit at the September round of the Man Cave but as the event is now gearing up for October, I still wanted to wear this and knew this was the right setting to go with. I like the casual look of the shirt and how it tucks in nicely into the jeans along with the added waist shirt (one of my favorite accessories back in the grunge era).

I had to choose the colors that I thought suited me best because as much as I wanted to go crazy and get all the colors from each set, being a blogger on a budget made it not in the cards but the outfit I put together is not only me but I something I feel looks good on me and also in this photo.

One of the events I like because of the cultural aspect of it and also that fact that it has such cool things for sale, NEO Japan is something that everyone should check out even if you do it just to browse (but I can almost guarantee that you’ll leave with at least one thing); I’m also excited that Modulus the official hair of These Conversations Kill has a new release at the event.

“Ray” is an ear length hair with a small little spacing in the off center part of the forehead which with the provided mirroring hairs you can choose from left or right where you want the slight part to go. I decided to wear browns for this photo because it fit the autumn sort of feel of the scene because black did not feel right and blonde would get lost and possibly washed out.

All in all another solid effort on the part of Modulus to keep their hair game on point (as people say these days).

Modulus Ray Hair features:

  • 100% original Alpha Nex-Gen mesh
  • 5 different color HUDS with built in color picker for added customization
  • 40 color FATPACK also available
  • Exclusively @ NEO Japan until October 21st

Sometimes I run a bit long with my words if there’s a lot of featured items but with there only being two in this blog entry it will be an easy one to wrap up. If you get the chance to take a trip to Netherwood to explore I definitely implore you to do so as it is one of my favorite locations that I’ve shot plenty of scenes at during one point or another and with the scare of it possibly having shut down recently you never want to risk missing out on something wonderful.

Below is a taxi to Netherwood and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do and without any further hesitation here is the style credits. Until our paths cross once more, onto the next conversation…

[#530] I Want It Now!

’cause I want it now
I want it now
Give me your heart and your soul
And I’m breaking out
I’m breaking out
Last chance to lose control

Muse, ♫Hysteria♫

After going on a mass blogging binge this week I decided to recharge a little bit and take a day off yesterday and had considered doing so the whole weekend but I felt a bit jazzed and pumped (pun slightly intended) and chose to shoot this scene while it was still in my head. Maybe the idea as a whole doesn’t really gel completely because I don’t know anyone insane enough to bench press near steps but I’ve done some unconventional things in my days so I’m going to get away with it.

I was thinking of a tune that would work with this and remembered one of my old favorites that I’d play constantly when I was virtually jamming out on Rock Band. “Hysteria” by Muse has always been one of those songs that would get me hyped up because it has such a killer bass line and I always enjoyed that aspect of the song when I would play it on the game.

Working out even in the virtual world requires some high energy rock and I found it in this song and aided me along with the “Kaleb” pose set by Kokoro Poses. This set of poses is probably at the top 5 of any of the workout poses that I’ve ever had at my disposal and I didn’t have to make any adjustments to my shape to make it work and not having to add more effort into styling and setting up is a plus in my book.

One of the best things I like about Kokoro Poses is that they add an incentive with their full sets of poses by adding poses that you wouldn’t get if you purchased them as singles and really why would you want to buy just one pose especially if you change your mind mid photo and wish you had gotten one of the other poses? That way if you have the full pose pack you can just throw them in a stand and switch to what you want to work with.

Kokoro Poses Kaleb Pose Pack features:

  • Bento enabled poses (Bento viewer required for proper use)
  • Mesh weights included that fit each pose specificially
  • 5 poses + 2 full pack exclusives (7 in all)
  • Exclusively @ Hipster Men’s Event until October 16th

Track or sweat pants are in my opinion one of the best and most comfortable ways to exercise because you don’t have to worry about the pinch or bind that you might get with jeans (which to me is a no-no anyway). ExalteD has a new pair of pants at the upcoming round of The Men Jail that I was excited to throw on and use for this blog. I originally planned to wear a shirt as well with this but I thought best to show off those ab muscles and save a shirt from getting drenched with sweat and getting all smelly.

I love the color options for the “Nick” Pants because they are all colors that I would wear and instead of copping out and wearing black or white, I went with the light (or baby) blue color represent one of the alternate old school colors of my favorite baseball team who are a game away from moving on in the National League playoffs are are perceived as underdogs that won’t get far (but I believe!) There is a nice black with white piping on the side of the pants to give it added style.

ExalteD Nick Pants FATPACK features:

  • 100% mesh
  • 12 different colors to choose from (changeable via HUD)
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake) and Signature (Gianni) male mesh bodies
  • Exclusively @ The Men Jail starting October 8th and available until October 28th

For footwear I thought the best type of shoe to pair with the pants was a lo-top sneaker and one of my favorite brands, Native Urban’s latest release fit what I was looking for. The “Pryda” sneakers are constructed similar to the “Woodboat” pair that I blogged not too long ago but they are not exact. I think even the colors available in the full pack are different from one another.

These sneakers are casual for just about any kind of situation you might find yourself in where you are not required to dress in a fancy suit. Perfect for hanging out at the beach, going to a club, or just kicking it at your place.

However, for those of you with the Belleza (Jake) body you won’t be able to use these because they were made specifically for Signature products.

Native Urban Pryda Sneakers All Colors features:

  • 100% Mesh
  • 12 customizable parts with 21 colors (changeable via HUD)
  • Fitted for Signature (Geralt and Giann) mesh bodies
  • Exclusively @ Signature Event from October 1st – 20th

Lately I’ve been rolling through my list of hairs to blog from Modulus and this time out I am wearing the “Alfie” hair. This side combed hair is about chin length and can be paired with just about any type of hairbase (I chose a side faded one for this look). The best part is that you can choose between which side you have it combed to because Modulus now gives you both left and right sided versions. This has been a recent feature which I am absolutely grateful for and I’m glad that owner, Chucky Hollak, has given the option to us.

I’m sure I am not the only one who is ecstatic for this feature and I have a feeling that this is not even a fraction of what is to come so like all of you I wait for what is next in the already feature heavy Modulus Alpha Nex-Gen products line.

Modulus Alfie Hair features:

  • 100% Original Alpha Nex-Gen Mesh
  • Left or Right side parts included
  • 5 color HUDs with 8 standard colors
  • HUD contains integrated color picker for added customization
  • 40 color FATPACK also available
  • Exclusively @ Uber until October 22nd

Of course I cannot forget to mention the backdrop that helped put this scene together; which is one of the recent releases from Paparazzi. It is not brand new as it was a part of one of the rounds of Cosmopolitan but their bi-weekly rounds makes it difficult sometimes to get something from there and feature it while it is brand new.

The “Graff Tagged Door” backdrop gives the feel of it being a part of an abandoned building that squatters or curious people have snuck into (also read broken into) and used their spray cans to write different things on the doors and walls or whatever else they feel like. In my mind I picture myself being someone who has found a way to make it an abandoned gym and go there to lift weights or do some kind of parkour. The ideas of where that could go are almost limitless and because it is a virtual concept I won’t have to worry about the authorities!

Paparazzi Graff Tagged Door Backdrop features:

  • 100% original mesh
  • 4 different color schemes available (sold seperately)
  • Resizeable via click
  • Currently available @ Papparazzi main and marketplace stores!

This all seems like a mouthful so I’m going to finish this blog post up so you can get to the good part if you haven’t already and I will definitely be back with more goods from some of the latest events that have just started and also more from Pose Fair and The Men Jail. I look forward to getting back to work and until our paths cross again, onto the next conversation…

[#529] We Get Up Again

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
And you won’t fear death any longer

People will hate you, shake you, break you
Standing firm will make you
Unstoppable
Unstoppable

For The Fallen Dreams, ♫Unstoppable

One of the best things as a blogger is when an event like Pose Fair comes along and great products are in front of you and give you inspiration to photograph scenes. With the “Male Pose 8” pose set by FockStore I imagined myself in a scenario where I was in a firefight like you might see in a movie like John Wick or it’s sequel John Wick: Chapter 2. Wearing black is something that suits me I think and this gave me an opportunity to visit a previous location, Alien Asylum (where Travis Olbers and I did our co-op photo!)

With five poses to choose from (and I’ve used two from this set) you can tell a pretty good story with it. As I said above I was without styling myself exactly as John Wick, I feel that I would tell a story from the characters point of view that someone very close was taken from him and he makes it his mission to exact revenge on the perpetrators but along the way deals with the pain and anxiety that the toll of his mission is taking on him.

FockStore Male Pose 8 features:

  • 5 bento enabled poses (bento viewer required for intended use)
  • 3 mesh handguns that match 3 of the poses
  • Exclusively @ Pose Fair until October 31st (Halloween!)

::Fockstore: Pose Male 8

The Gabriel “Black Panther” set from the September round of The Arcade was something I enjoyed collecting (as I do a fair amount of their gacha items) but I didn’t really have an set idea for what I wanted to do with it but when the FockStore poses came into my virtual life I thought it would be perfect. I also managed to use just about each product (mostly in black except the gloves) and even wore the RARE Rollup Coat in my main photo, and took it off for my secondary shot.

The only thing I felt wouldn’t work in the scene were the actual panthers that are a part of the set and come in different poses. Maybe it might have added a little bit more of a dynamic but I didn’t feel it was necessary to have it be a part of what I was doing.

My secondary shot also includes a close up of my eyes which are from Go&See and are from The Dark Style Fair which is one of those events that appeal to part of me. The “Luxe” eyes look very cool which is one of several reasons why I made sure that you could see them as eyes are harder to see in any kind of photo other than an extreme closeup.

You can take my word for how cool these eyes are but seriously you should go take a walk on the dark side and check out the “Luxe” eyes and many of the other cool things you can take home from The Dark Style Fair.

Go&See Luxe Eyes features:

  • Appliers for CATWA and Genus Project (sold separately)
  • Mesh eyes also available
  • 10 different iris tones to choose from
  • Exclusively @ The Dark Style Fair until October 31st!

Now that we are in October which is my favorite month overall (even though the chillier weather) I’m working to get my mindset to where I can do more Halloween type scenes and I am sure many of the events that are coming up (and some that have already started such as Salem) will have items that will aid me in my mission.

With that said I am going to wrap this post up and will be back again soon with more from the grid. Until our paths cross again, onto the next conversation…

[#528] The Luckiest

Next door there’s an old man who lived to his nineties
And one day passed away in his sleep
And his wife; she stayed for a couple of days
And passed away

I’m sorry, I know that’s a strange way to tell you that I know we belong
That I know

Ben Folds, ♫The Luckiest♫

Continuing with my latest series of light and feel good photos, I didn’t have my soundtrack for this blog until after I finished taking the photos for it. Sometimes I will just search on Google for songs that relate to an emotion and see what pages come up and listen to some of the results. This time I did a search for “songs about celebrating a relationship” and listened to a few selections but nothing could beat “The Luckiest” by Ben Folds.

I’ve been familiar with Ben Folds music for decades as he’s been a solo artist as well as part of a quintet (Ben Folds Five) and some of his songs are nerdy but a fair amount of them really pack an emotional punch and that is what this song does. If anyone that does read this clicks the links to the videos that I post the links to in the quotation at the top you will know what I’m talking about. This song makes you think even with it’s quirk towards the end it is definitely a song that fits my search.

The “To Us” pose by Image Essentials is a good representation of celebrating a relationship between two people. A longing gaze from the gentleman as they both toast their happiness with on another is a special moment and a fine depiction. I had to make a few adjustments with my pose but little needed to be done otherwise. The props with the couples pose (the chair, two glasses of champagne, and the champagne bottle itself) are nicely done should definitely be looked at by any couple that wants to take a portrait to hang on the wall.

Image Essentials To Us Couples Pose (With Props) features:

  • Bento enabled couples pose (Bento viewer required to use properly)
  • Mesh couch contains poses (and added props)
  • Available @ Image Essentials flagship store

Hot off my previous blog where I featured the first of two new hair releases by Modulus from the 2018 edition of Hair Fair, I am rounding out the coverage for the store by wearing the “Elijah” short hair. I chose to use the same hairbase with this hair to add some depth as well. Compared to the Fraser hair I had on in the previous blog, this one is much shorter and a bit on the curly side as far as I can describe it to you; plenty of colors to choose from as always with Modulus as well.

With four days left of this year’s Hair Fair to go…if you haven’t checked it out yet then what are you waiting for?

Modulus Elijah Hair features:

  • 100% original alpha next gen mesh
  • 5 different color HUDs available with 8 base colors in each
  • 40 color FATPACK also available
  • Integrated color picker in each HUD for added customization
  • Left or right versions in package
  • Exclusively @ Hair Fair until October 7th!!!

The two above things are main features for this blog but I have to give mention to the recent BlankLine release from the September round of The Men’s Department. I am wearing the “KnitVestShirts” which I feel is a classic look and best fit the scene I had in mind when I was brainstorming it. I chose to go the FATPACK route with this because I wasn’t sure what color style I liked and having all the options (being able to color change the shirt, vest and tie allowed for me to come up with exactly what I wanted).

With more to come to the pages of this site I am going to thank those of you who visited and anyone who follows me on any of the social media outlets, it really is humbling hearing from those of you who I have never met talk about things I’ve posted. This blog is not just for me and anyone who has felt any of the feelings that have been expressed or have become inspired by the images or words, this is for you too.

Until our paths cross again, onto the next conversation…

[#527] Love, Love, Love

And all the life about to go is in my mind,
Cause all the loudest voices in the world are never right

Avalanche City, ♫Love, Love, Love

Most of the time my blogs are very shadowy and darker but lately I’ve been trying to work outside of that (funny thing with it now being October and I want to do dark themed scenes). I found myself being inspired by a pose/prop from Image Essentials that is called Pride v2 because I consider myself a supporter of the LGBTQ community and know many people in the community so I feel that shining a light towards something that has seen a lot of darkness at times is a positive thing.

I could repeat this until I’m blue in the face regardless of those who may not agree with my views (I don’t encourage personal conversations of religion nor politics as it tends to never turn out well) and potentially cliche as it may sound, love is love. Sometimes you find it when you are looking and also when you aren’t. It’s not always logical but when you have it in whatever form it is in front of you, embrace it no matter what.

With this Image Essentials pose and prop and a colorful top provided by Bakaboo, I returned to I Am [SL] Amsterdam to find a spot at the location and it is such a wonderful and photogenic place. This is my second time visiting to set up a scene and I know that as long as it stays open I will come back again to do another photo there in the future.

Image Essentials Pride v2 Pose + Prop features:

  • Bento enabled pose (Bento capable viewer needed for proper use)
  • Mesh flag included
  • Intended for female avatars
  • Available @ Image Essential’s flagship store

Being a blogger for Bakaboo is something I consider to be a privilege because the clothes are colorful and unique in a daring way. The styles that are created push the edge and I do like to take chances with things I wear (as you can’t always play it safe). I really like the “Statement” Shirt and Pants and I chose to mix and match between the three designs available for my outfit. The multicolor sleeve of the top I am wearing works well with the rainbow colors of the flag I am holding to give a vibrant look to it.

Bakaboo Statement Shirt and Pants features:

  • 100% original mesh
  • Three differrent color patterns (Color A, B and C / Sold separately)
  • Fitted sizes for Belleza (Jake), Signature (Gianni) and SLink Physique male bodies
  • Available @ Bakaboo’s flagship store

Within the last month or so I haven’t been able to be as creatively driven as I can be and have been in the past which I documented with having a block. I have started to slowly work my way out of it and it’s a good time with a lot of events going such as Pose Fair and a lot of the mainstays (FaMESHed, The Men Jail, and The Men’s Department) coming with new monthly rounds.

Less than a week is left for the 2018 edition of Hair Fair and there are so many great hairstyles for guys and I did pick up a few but most importantly there are two by my brand Partner, Modulus. I am gladly showing one of the two for sale. “Fraser” is a short wispy hair that can be paired with a regular or shaved hairbase and it will still look great. I’ve opted with going with a shaved one to show more depth. As one of two releases for the event and quite a few more new releases, Modulus is on a role and crushing it with each one giving us guys a variety of different ‘do’s to choose from that are of the highest quality.

Modulus Fraser Hair features:

  • 100% original mesh alpha hair
  • 5 color HUDs available with 8 colors in each
  • 40 color FATPACK option also available
  • Left or right versions
  • Integrated color picker in HUDs for added customization
  • Exclusively @ Hair Fair until October 7th

As I start to wrap up this blog post I want to say that lately I have been seeing a lot of positivity through social media that I feel is a breath of fresh air. It’s not hard to be negative or post super insensitive comments or status’ and bully people either virtually or in the real world. Even if it sounds like a PSA I truly believe that showing what good there is in the world is rewarding and worthwhile even if it is a challenge.

There’s nothing wrong with taking the high ground even when maybe doing the opposite might be viewed as the cool or in thing with a certain group of individuals. We’re all capable of it and for anyone who believes in karma it all works out in the long term because the world benefits.

Now that my brain is working a bit better and I’m feeling more creative there will be more to see on this blog so keep an eye out but until the next time our paths cross, onto the next conversation…

[#526] Come Home

Everything I can’t be
Is everything you should be
And that’s why I need you here
Everything I can’t be
Is everything you should be
And that’s why I need you here
So hear this now…

OneRepublic, ♫Come Home

In the virtual world you can have family, you can claim blood relatatives if you want and you can also call family someone you met that you have kept a great friendship for so long that the bond is strong enough that they are family. For this photo I borrowed someone I consider to be my sister and the best part is we might give each other heck with jokes but know when we get to a line and not to cross it.

I’ve known Xandria for a few years now and she herself has dabbled in photos so when I asked her if she would be kind enough to sit in on a photo session (I know that I can do them myself and have the means to but just do not have the energy or mental will to do so) she was kind enough to donate a little time so that I could complete my idea and could clear it out of my headspace to give more room for other ideas that I need to work on this week.

The only item that I am featuring as the pose set being used here is from Image Essentials. The “Polished” set worked well for my idea as well as the location that was passed along to me by my fellow blogger and friend, Gwen (thank you so much for telling me about this place!). Now that sims are starting to change their landscapes to autumn photos are going to take on a different look and feel and that is just how seasons go. Missing Melody has a fall ambience with many different photogenic spots at its location. I found a really well decorated house with all the things that make houses look good (and that maybe I would use if I knew anything about good decor work in the virtual world).

Image Essentials Polished Pose Set features:

  • Bento enabled poses (must have a bento capable viewer to use properly)
  • 5 different poses to choose from (with mirrored versions)
  • Pose HUD included so can easily pose yourself
  • Regular static poses also included to put in a pose stand for ease of use as well

Xandria is also wearing something that I’m sure the gals out there might truly like (if they don’t have it already) is the newest additions to the Addams and Blueberry store as a co-released product: the “Frank” halter crop top (Addams) and jeans (Blueberry). The crowds should have died down by now so it should be very easy to get these releases and there are tons of options of single colors as well as FATPACK options for those who are into that (as I tend to be with guys items when I can).

I think it is time for me to put this blog to bed and leave you with my sister’s style credits so until our paths cross again, happy shopping and onto the next conversation…
