[#627] All Along The Watchtower

 

All along the watchtower
Princes kept the view
While all the women came and went
Barefoot servants too

Jimi Hendrix Experience, ♫All Along The Watchtower♫

 

When I was thinking about songs that I felt would go with the visual of this blog I came up with a few of them but the one that stood out was “All Along The Watchtower”. Originally by Bob Dylan, it’s almost always associated with Jimi Hendrix who did a cover version of it a year after it was first recorded. I have nothing against Bob Dylan, the fact remains that I’ve already used some of his songs already and until today have never featured anything from Hendrix, who I have always felt was an amazing talent who left the world too soon. Perhaps maybe some of the best musicians who were gone much too soon could have continued blazing a path or could have fell off the face of the planet but it’s something we’ll never know as we cherish the things they gave us while they were here.

I chose to visit Ironwood Hills, which is a place I enjoy going to when I want to do some kind of post-apocalyptic scenes. Though with this I didn’t throw in any zombies or anything because I’ve done that and I wanted to make it more about anticipation instead of action. While I may not actually be on a watchtower in the scene, I am keeping an eye out with this pose set by Kirek Poses called the “Defense Pack” there are three different poses each with an accompanying rifle. To me the pose I picked really shows that I’m surveying the area but if need but would be ready to defend myself from whatever could be around the corner.

Kirek Poses – Defense Pose Pack

  • Bento static poses (poseball versions included)
  • 3 different poses
  • Rifle for each pose included
  • Pose Fair exclusive until 05/25/19

My wardrobe is a mixture of both old and new but I’m going to focus on the event specific things that have hit some events this month. My glasses are a part of a new gacha from BlankLine that have two different styles of glasses each with different frame colors to play for. Somehow I got lucky and was able to pull the RARE from the machine that includes a HUD that can change the lenses on it with emoji’s and things like that. I am going to have to see if I can get my hands on one of the commons I was looking for because after getting the the most sought after prize, I felt like I shouldn’t keep trying my luck.

I also have been hanging onto these for a bit since Anthem opened because I wanted to break them in for the right scene and they almost made it into the last one but I reserved them for a little longer. I’m talking about the “Kojima Jeans” from Deadwool, and this is I believe the first major jeans release for the store since the collab with Blueberry a few years ago; I may be wrong so if I am I’m sure someone will inform me. These are fantastic and great fitting with several features including three different leg bottom styles (Deep Cuffs, Rolled Up and Stacked) and for those interested in getting the FATPACK there is a cool belt loop chain included but for those of you who just want maybe one or two color choices you’re in luck as well because it is sold separately too.

The beard I picked up from LeLutka maybe a week or so ago has literally been one of my most favorite things ever and seemingly haven’t been able to take photos without it. I think this evening was the first time I went without it as I took Brenna to the big prom that was posted about on Facebook. I wanted to truly clean up well and did so by shaving my face so I looked fresh. I’m sure that by tomorrow the beard will be back or by the time I take the next photo but we will have to see.

[#625] We Only Come Out At Night

The days are much too bright

Smashing Pumpkins, ♫We Only Come Out At Night♫

 

Let the Pose Fair madness begin! My last post for the month of April featured but one of the many great pose items from the fair and I’m starting (It’s gonna be) May with another. Tomorrow the fair will open to the general public and everyone will be wanting to get in on all the fun and creativity that can be had.

The hardest part once again is that I didn’t have a soundtrack for this post before I took my photo and that lends sometimes to going through tons of different things that I personally own as well as scouring YouTube for possibilities and I narrowed it down to about three but I’m going to keep the ones I didn’t use to myself because they will potentially be used in other future posts.

Salacity’s contribution that I found to be really cool is a window backdrop complete with curtains, ledge and a surround which can be changed between three different scenes (midnight, stormy and sunrise) and I did try them all as I was initially setting up my shot but much like the song I chose, I went with midnight. In reality I tend to be a night owl and as such most of my creativity happens during the hours that most people are asleep. I paired it with the male pose set that is meant to be a companion of the backdrop; there is also a female version and as a whole I really think all of these releases could inspire a lot of great photos.

Salacity – Window Seat Backdrop

  • Original Mesh
  • 3 different backrounds (midnight, stormy, sunset)
  • Compatible with Window Seat Female and Male pose sets
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair starting 05/04/19

Salacity – Window Seat Male Poses

  • Bento Poses
  • 5 different poses (mirrors included)
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair starting 05/04/19

A new event just started today called Anthem and one of the proprietors of it is Mikel Monk who is also associated with The Men’s Department, one of my all time favorite events since the beginning of such things to exist. I felt like I couldn’t go wrong trying to get in there during the middle of the night (even if it might get me a talking to). From what I did see, there are lots of great items and a few of which came home with me so you’ll likely see them this month unless I forget and then it’s a tragedy.

The event also marks a new release by my longtime brand partner, Cold-Ash, who is proudly bringing to consumers the “TANNER Open Hoodie”. When the notice came in of the new item and I saw what it was, I am not going to lie I became really excited. Spring and the beginning of Fall are probably my second favorite times of year outside of summer weather wise. I can go out and not have a clunky winter jacket on and normally am wearing a hoodie of some sort (I own many of them rl).

The Fatpack of Tanner comes with two options for the hoodie (with or without shirt option) and I should have been a bit bolder and gone without the shirt but at the same time I didn’t feel the photo deemed for that. There are plenty of basic color choices between both the hoodie itself and shirt to make a lot of different combinations and I think that will be enough of a selling point in itself because if there are a lot of people out there like myself, I am a fan of choice and to have many is by far the best option.

Cold-Ash – TANNER Open Hoodie (FatPack)

  • Original Mesh
  • HUD Contains 15 hoodie colors & 9 shirt colors
  • 2 versions (With or Without Shirt)
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake) and Signature (Gianni) mesh bodies
  • Exclusively at Anthem until 05/30/19

Finalizing my wardrobe are two items from Native Urban (one of which a current release, the other a previous release that I really have wanted to wear). The “Guetta Snkrs” are currently at Access for another few days so for anyone who really likes a good classic hi-top shoe should check this out ASAP but do not worry if you can’t make it to the event, they’ll be placed in the store shortly after it ends. The amount of colors and faces you can change are everything I mentioned earlier in my writing. Styling for this shoe is almost infinite and I could wear it just about every day with a different color scheme and never have the same one unless I wanted to.

Going with a casual look as I am wearing a hoodie, I went with the “Wezol Joggers”. I knew that doing it this way would make it easier for me to wear the hi-tops without clipping and it worked well with what I am wearing on the upper part of my body. My goal is that if I can make something work without having to make slight edits (because I want to ensure the integrity of the item remains intact) and can achieve it then I’m a happy guy.

Native Urban – Guetta Snkrs (All Colors)

  • Original Mesh
  • HUD includes 25 colors with 11 customizable parts
  • Unisex Item
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake), Maitreya (Lara) and Signature (Gianni) mesh bodies
  • Exclusive to the Access event until 05/07/19

During the course of this month I’ll be covering Pose Fair obviously and be throwing in bits and pieces of events that I’ve gone to and shopped. I’m looking forward to the kinds of things that will come from this as I recall mentioning that poses are one of the most important things to a photographer. They help tell the stories sometimes more than the decor or clothing we have on and around us.

I also want to give a thank you to everyone behind The Men’s Jail event from the owners, to the blogger manager as well as all the designers I’ve had the pleasure of featuring during my time as part of the event. It was invaluable to me and hopefully once I’m able to have more time we’ll be able to work together again.

[#624] Daydream Believer

 

Oh, I could hide ‘neath the wings
Of the bluebird as she sings
The six o’clock alarm would never ring
But it rings and I rise
Wipe the sleep out of my eyes
My shavin’ razor’s cold and it stings

The Monkees, ♫Daydream Believer♫

 

End of the month time and there’s some exciting things on the horizon for me as May brings in not only the start of much nicer weather (I hope) but also the next incarnation of Pose Fair. With all of the previews I have seen of the things that will be for sale there, I know that a lot of photography enthusiasts and bloggers are going to be chomping at the bit to get their hands on things.

Not knowing where to begin I decide to start with a gacha pose set from Navajo called “Let’s Shave”. The set has 8 poses all together with two being couples poses but there are times when I’m featuring gacha items I pick one of the commons but this time I decided to change it up by displaying the single RARE pose that comes with sink and razor props.

I’ve never really done a shaving scene before and it’s about time to do so; it was fun setting it up and it ended up inspiring me to change up the setting of my own bathroom though most of it didn’t get caught in the photo itself. The shoot ended up being productive on several fronts and I like keeping my mind occupied because if it isn’t then it tends to cause trouble for me. *insert chuckle here*

After I finished taking photos and a little touching up/cropping I thought to myself I have no idea what I wanted to use for the soundtrack so the rest of my evening was spent figuring that out. I finally chose the classic “Daydream Believer” by The Monkees as I enjoy them (yeah most younger people are probably thinking wtf but give it a try it isn’t going to hurt). The song has a reference to shaving which ties everything together mostly so there we go.

Navajo – Let’s Shave Gacha (RARE)

  • Bento capable poses (Bento viewer needed)
  • 8 poses in set (6 commons, 1 RARE and 1 ULTRA RARE)
  • Some poses come with electric shave or straight razor
  • Towel accessory in some poses
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair starting May 04th, 2019

I‘m looking forward to the creativity that will be brought about with Pose Fair as more than anything I’ve began to consider myself more of a artistic blogger that specializes mostly in fashion but it’s poses that really help bring my ideas to life. I’m not sure if there’s a way to describe that but if there is and anyone out there has an idea of what it’s called then feel free to let me know.

This round I’m going to try and balance the singles male poses with couples poses and possibly throw in some single female things too when I’ve met my requirements to spread out my portfolio as well as manage to pair some of the items from stores I blog. 2019 has been about branching out and so far I am not sure that I’ve fulfilled that as much as I’ve liked to but still plenty of time to catch up to that.

[#604] It’z Just What We Do

 

Hey, we might look a little crazy tonight, hey baby that’s alright,
It’s our backwoods, boondock roots, it’s just what we do.
It’s just what we do.

Florida Georgia Line, ♫It’z Just What We Do♫

 

It’s the anniversary month for me as a blogger and there’s a lot going on for March so I am going to try and keep it rolling as best as I can to make sure I cover a lot of great things from events like Skin Fair, The Men Jail and The Men’s Department to stores like Cold-Ash and Native Urban. The energy I am riding on right now is great and I decided to visit Whimberly to see if I could find a spot for a photo.

I thought it would be fun to kick back and have a few cold ones to celebrate some of the milestones that I’ve accomplished lately as well as the aforementioned anniversary of blogging on my own (most won’t remember that I started blogging as part of a team for a site before I branched out).

The Men Jail opens up for a new round tomorrow and I have utilized a few items that I thought were fun. Since I already crossed off Corey Hart’s “Sunglasses At Night” I needed a different tune so with a scene that screams country I decided to go with one of my faves of the genre, Florida Georgia Line. I’ll be the first to say that Country is not my first choice when it comes to music but there are some really good artists and songs that are within the genre.

The sunglasses I have on are from a new designer/store that I have not heard of before named Ultraman Creations. The “Emperor Glasses” are pretty stylish and my favorite part about them is that they flip up revealing regular lenses. Reminds me a lot of the character of Dwayne Wayne played by Kadeem Hardison on “A Different World” though the style is a little different they still have the flip up action in common. The included HUD gives you the option to choose from 3 metals on the intricate part of the frame and 4 on the outside lenses. There is also a special section for the outside lenses where there are graphics like hearts and x’s as well as “Bad Boy”.

All in all these are a pretty fun pair of shades and it is not something you see a lot on the grid. I applaud the effort of Ultraman Creations and look forward to seeing what other types of products the release in the future and when someone asks about them, I can say I was one of the first to feature them on These Conversations Kill.

The other item I have from TMJ is the “X. Beer Bucket” by X. Store (another new store that I’m just getting acquainted with). While the main function of the bucket is to be worn by the owner (from which beverages can be dispensed to anyone who clicks it), I’ve chosen to use it in a different capacity as a decor function. It also comes with a bottle of brew that has a hand hold animation when worn.

Pretty soon the weather will get nicer and there will be in-world barbecues and this will definitely come in handy for the brew consumers in your circle or family. Give it a closer look when The Men Jail opens tomorrow along with many other offerings this round.

Ultraman Creations – Emperor Sunglasses

  • Original Mesh
  • Texture HUD included
  • 3 metals for frames
  • 4 colors for outside lenses
  • 9 special graphics for outside lenses
  • Resizable through HUD
  • Exclusive to The Men Jail until 03/28/19

X. Store – X. Beer Bucket

  • Original mesh
  • Wearable beer bucket has built in pose with beverage giving
  • Wearable bottle of beer with built in hold animation
  • Exclusive to The Men Jail until 03/28/19

I have a new jacket to wear courtesy of Cold-Ash by way of The Men’s Department. Much like the last release the “Ryan Bomber Jacket” comes with an option for a hooded sweatshirt or a regular shirt; considering I wore the hoodie version with the last release even though I love them I have to at least be fair.

With the FATPACK there is 9 different jacket colors with 11 different hoodie colors and 10 shirt colors which makes matching it up with the rest of your wardrobe as easy as can be. I chose to wear the red (or crimson if you prefer) color to go along with the red tint of the lenses on the glasses. I could have gone with blue but I wanted to have some contrast between myself and the night sky in the photo.

One hugely positive thing I can say of Cold-Ash is that while there may not be releases for every event under the sun, the events the store participates in get a high quality item because CA doesn’t take shortcuts or rush things just to make a deadline and that is something I can appreciate as I’m sure everyone out there does as well. With there being several more weeks of the cold going on I am nearly positive this will make another appearance before the weather turns decent.

Cold-Ash – RYAN Bomber Jacket (FatPack)

  • Original mesh
  • 9 jacket colors
  • 11 hoodie colors
  • 10 shirt colors
  • Single versions also for sale
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake), Signature (Geralt+Gianni) and SLink Physique mesh bodies
  • Currently at The Men’s Department until 03/30/19

I am going to take this opportunity as I have plenty to blog this month to wrap things up as quick as possible and turn over to the credits. Hopefully if you aren’t able to get out to shop before the weekend that set aside some time to visit some of the latest rounds of events and visit some of your favorite stores as you never know if you’ll stumble upon something new.

Another one is in the books but I’m looking forward to what is next and I sure hope that you all stop back again to see what I might be up to but until then…see ya! P.S. Go visit Whimberly it’s an awesome place for photography!!!

 

Time to get your buzz on and your love on, all night long,
And if you play your hand right, you won’t have to go home alone.

[#597] In The Garage

I’ve got an electric guitar
I play my stupid songs
I write these stupid words
And I love every one
Waiting there for me
Yes I do, I do

Weezer, ♫In The Garage

My apologies to those that might check the site for new content but this last week has been a bit hectic for me but it’s not for bad reasons at all. Usually I am not much for talking about things outside of my photos or certain themes but this is worth talking about in my mind. Our family has been looking to expand and that can often be scary in some instances but in mine and Brenna’s case it’s been pretty awesome.

Alyx (who we also call Elijah) has been a part of our lives for about a week now and sometimes I find it hard to connect with people but this young man is nearly a mirror of me in the fact that we both enjoy graphic work, movies and a whole bunch of other pop culture stuff that makes this seem much like fate (which not everyone believes in). I am not gonna get too much into things right now but I’m enjoying getting to spend time with and even get creative with him.

So what do two nerds that are creative do when they have a little free time? Well they get together and set up a photograph and I get to share my blog process with someone that is interested in it…definitely a win/win in my book.

Alyx introduced me to a new location called Midnight Glory which I would say is a photography sim with a lot of different mechanics to it to allow photo takers and bloggers to roam around and find an interesting spot within the design and being new to it, I told him to find a spot he really liked and it just happened that he has a good eye and it worked to my advantage. The area he found (a garage full of nerd stuff) prompted me to come up with the soundtrack to the post right away.

“In The Garage” has been a jam (I almost could say an anthem) for me for over 20 years and has lots of nerdy and geeky elements in both the verses and chorus. Making references to X-Men comic book characters to even members of the band kiss…but what really hit home is the opening verse talking about a “Dungeon Master’s Guide” which is what Dungeons and Dragons players have used for decades to tell stories of wizards, warriors, and mythic creatures. I was one of those who at the time when it wasn’t such the in thing to do got together with my friends on weekends (and once in a great while on a school night) and we’d have a blast rolling dice and trying to get through a story.

Continuing on with the theme of nerd power, my hair style is an homage to one of the best survival horror games of all time, “Resident Evil 2” which was re-released not long ago as an updated version which current generation graphics. Modulus released the “Leon Hair” at the beginning of the month at the FaMESHed event to commemorate and immortalize it in our virtual leg of the world.

I really like how the hair is parted and sweeps over the eyes without directly falling over them; I also have to say that it really excited me to see this because it was definitely a game I spent a lot of time on back when it was first released. Leon S. Kennedy was a character I grew very fond of and thought of as being a hero and relatable.

Modulus – Leon Hair

  • Original “Nex-Gen” Alpha Mesh
  • 5 Tone Color Pack HUDs + Integrated Tinting
  • 40 Color FATPACK also for sale
  • Left and Right mirrored versions included
  • Exclusive to FaMESHed until 02/25/19

After putting my look together (I didn’t take the photo for this blog right away so I’ve been wearing it for a bit), I was told that I was wearing a Canadian Tuxedo (again). This is not something I consider an issue as virtually I consider myself equals parts Irish and equals part Canadian so wearing this type of attire is my birthright right?

Cold-Ash’s newest release the “FLYNN Denim Jacket” is a major reason why I would suggest a shopping trip to The Men’s Department. I didn’t realize how much this jacket fit in with my overall theme until probably just now because these kind of jackets while still fashionable now were a big thing back in the 90’s which my mindset has been in during this entire blog process.

One of the features I like best about this jacket is that you do have the option to wear it with a built-in hooded sweatshirt or with a regular shirt; to me that makes it worth it just in that respect. Outside of the FATPACK, the event has 6 denim versions to purchase but if you want the best deal and all the options to change the color of the hoodie or shirt you are wearing with it, getting the whole shebang as they say is well worth it.

Cold-Ash – FLYNN Denim Jacket

  • Original Mesh
  • 3 Variations (Jacket Solo, Jacket with Hoodie or Jacket with Shirt)
  • 6 Denim Choices (+1 Fatpack Exclusive)
  • 8 Hoodie Colors
  • 8 Shirt Colors
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake) and Signature (Gianni)
  • Exclusive to The Men’s Department until 02/28/19

Alyx is wearing the latest hair from lock&tuft called “no joke” that is currently available at Shiny Shabby; Alyx is the creator and own of the brand as well. It’s not often that I have conversations with anyone that in turn inspire products that are brought to life within very little time as this hair has. We got to talking about hair styles and I had thrown out the idea for this style and he was willing to give it a shot; it is now at one of the big monthly shopping events for everyone to enjoy.

I will also be wearing this hair myself in an upcoming post but the idea will take some time to put together but I promise that it will be quite a bit of fun.

The quality of the hair is top notch and I can say this without bias as I’ve blogged the brand before these recent events and the color options and how things fit are definitely another reason to shop this store as there are many styles not just for men but also for women as well as unisex styles that will worth both ways. Longer messy styles are definitely in my wheelhouse of interest and I think Alyx’s overall look that he’s put together is pretty dang rad as well if I say so myself (and I do!)

lock&tuft – No Joke

  • Original unrigged mesh
  • Resizeable upon click
  • 5 color packs to choose from
  • FATPACK also available
  • Exclusive to Shiny Shabby until 03/16/19

On that note I feel like there are a lot of credits that have gone into this blog and getting through them to make sure that I’ve crossed my t’s and dottied my i’s is definitely going to take a moment which makes it that time to get this blog ready to post and start getting ready for the next one as I have been rather lethargic this week when it’s come to posting; the month is short enough as it is and I’ve still got some important things I want to share.

I want to say a big thank you to Alyx for joining me on this ride and we had a very good time. This was definitely the beginning of quite a few collaborations in the future if this is any indication because I enjoy working with others when ideas come to mind and with those I have worked with it has been nothing but great times and memories.

So long for now and enjoy the rest of the weekend!

[#587] The Devil’s In The Next Room

Pick it up, pick it up, pick it up
Pick up the phone
You said it yourself you’re scared of being alone
You said it yourself that you can crack the code
But the static you hear automatically keeps you exposed on your own

Shinedown, ♫Devil

Not many television shows have had the longevity that Supernatural has had for the last 14 years. It is one of my favorite shows and that fact they can still keep my attention this long tells me that they are doing something right. I’ve started some shows in the past that I never ended up finishing (The Vampire Diaries which I was gladly able to pick back up on Netflix). The adventures that the brothers Winchester go on are very exciting no matter what they or their acquintances (friends and family as well) get into.

I have done several posts displaying my fandom for the show from the perspectives of Sam & Dean as well as done on where I had a friend play Castiel. However, not once did I ever think about doing something that pays homage to one of the many antagonists on the show: the demons. During my post processing I had an issue where the black smoke I wanted coming out of the meat suit (the vessel the demon is hiding out in as referenced by the show). It was too dark so I decided to go with red, which man of the higher ups in the demon world have when “smoking out” of a vessel. Notably Crowley and I believe Lucifer himself have displayed the crimson version to my knowledge. There have probably been others but having been on the air for 14 seasons (and rewatching them from the beginning would take forever) it is easy to forget things.

Pose Fair ends tonight and I am hoping this is the equivalent of going out with a bang. I’ve enjoyed this tremendously and am likely going to take a day or so break from posting to recharge (maybe) before I start to see things from the February special edition for Valentine’s goes into effect. I would like to thank Ruby and Jason (as well as everyone else behind the scenes) for creating such an awesome environment to blog for. It is an honor to have been chosen by you for this event and I cannot express how much it means to me.

Getting down to it my last pose is from CORPUS Poses and is easily enough called “Him”. It is a varied set of standing and a sitting pose and one of them happened to be one where I am looking up which was perfect to get in just the right angle where I could simulate a demon vacating my avatar with a little bit of help from the LeLutka face hud (the facial expressions are not a part of the pose just to let you know). There are five poses to this set in all and they are all really usable in just about any situation you can think of.

To take a catchphrase from another show “TREAT YOSELF” and stop by the Pose Fair one more time or for the first time before it ends tonight. Your photography will thank you for it and that is something I can genuinely guarantee.

Corpus Poses – Him Pose Set

  • Bento enabled pose (bento viewer needed)
  • 5 different poses to choose from
  • Static poses for you to put in your own poseballs or pose stands
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair until 01/26/19 (Ends tonight so hurry!!!!)

For this blogs style, I decided on casual while combining and older release with a brand new one. My shirt comes from Deadwool and is called “Lorenzo”; it is a tucked in button down with shirt underneath. It’s one of those pieces of clothing I like to revisit and it just happens to pair up well with the “Roll Up Pants” by Native Urban which just hit the racks  at Uber a few days ago.

Gentleman if you like dress up style pants with a bit of a roll up cuff at the bottom then these are definitely your new jam. While single color options can be nice I can only stress how much of a value it is to get the complete FATPACK and give yourself many options to allow for pairing it with about any of the shirts in your virtual closets. To be able to change parts of it such as the belt, the pants and even the slight little bit of boxer shorts poking out I can’t find a better reason not to go all in.

Native Urban – Roll Up Pants

  • Original mesh
  • Single options sold seprately
  • FATPACK includes HUD to change 7 parts (14 colors available)
  • Fitted for Signature (Gianni) and Maitreya (Lara) for the ladies
  • Currently exclusive to Uber until 02/23/19

On that note I think it is time to finish this up with giving you all the style information that pertains to this look and of course if there is something here that you see that you are interested in that is not listed then first check my Credits page which lists what head, skin, and body that I am presently wearing on a consistent basis. If it is anything else then get a hold of me through social media or by email which is on my about page.

Time to go celebrate all the creativity I’ve had with the Pose Fair and maybe relax with some games and time with great people. I will catch everyone again hopefully very soon but until then be well and start a conversation and keep it going.

Best regards,

B

[#585] More Than A Feeling

It’s more than a feeling
When I hear that old song they used to play
And I begin dreaming
‘Til I see Marianne walk away
I see my Marianne walkin’ away

Boston, ♫More Than A Feeling

My coverage for Pose Fair is close to completion as the event closes up tomorrow night but I still have a few more tricks up my sleeve before all is said and done. I grabbed my brother Paul for a shoot that reminds me a little bit of when I was younger in the real world and I used to spend time with my brother. Memories like this are fun to try to portray virtually because the internet is able to hold onto them for a long time.

Space Cadet’s pose set “Teen Spirit” is a fun one that has five different air guitar poses. Not many people I know of do it today but it was a pretty big thing to do for fun when listening to music in my younger years (This was before video games took over). Both Paul and I have different poses from the set and I cannot tell you how much fun we had with this and the coolest part is that the poses are named after musicians such as Axl Rose and Slash from Guns N’ Roses.

Many of the poses that I have used for blogs from Pose Fair are great (as are ones that I have not as well) but this definitely is a lot of fun and I think that anyone that gets this pose pack could live out their rock star fantasies.

  • Bento enabled poses (bento viewer needed)
  • 5 different poses
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair until 01/26/19

Modulus has quite a few new releases going right now and in this post the style I have on is the “Pete Hair”. It is a short to mid length style that flows to one side of the face or the other depending on which version you wear. I have seen a lot of musicians have similar hairstyles to this and using it for this photo works out for me because I feel like I choose the right direction for the hair to fall as I jam out to some Boston.

It goes without saying that if you’re a guy looking for new hair that you should check out Modulus not only just their store but also at the events they participate in which they are attached to some of the best out there including male specific ones.

I‘ve been sticking with my closet and wearing clothes that likely have been featured a time or two here but I decided to do a little shopping this afternoon; visiting both The Men’s Department and Men Only Monthly to put together an outfit that I really like. I’ll start with my shirt which is from Chuck Size and called “FABIO”. Graphic shirts are probably my most favorite type of shirt there is and the designs that this store has on theirs is super cool to me. It only makes sense that if I am doing a photo where I’m playing air guitar to possibly one of the most well known songs of the last 40+ years that a shirt with a skeleton holding a guitar is appropriate.

The jogging pants I am wearing come from etham and can be found at Men Only Monthly. Taking into account all of the previous things I mentioned, jogging pants made it clear to me that I have kind of a retro look going on that is pretty 80’s or 90’s inspired. Might as well be comfortable while I’m doing my best impression of just about any famous guitar player out there wailing away at a guitar solo.

Paul is attired in past releases from Cold-Ash and takes after his brother when it comes to knowing good clothing when he sees it.

On that note I think we’ve jammed out a good while and you all know what’s what. Time for some credits to get you out there shopping and if the weather is anything like it is here…staying in and going on a shopping trip is a lot more exciting. If you must venture out please be safe and warm and do NOT lick frozen light poles, you’ll live to regret it!

Best regards,

B
