[#583] I Wanna Dance With Somebody

Clock strikes upon the hour
And the sun begins to fade
Still enough time to figure out
How to chase my blues away

Bootstraps, ♫I Wanna Dance With Somebody
Originally Performed By Whitney Houston

One of the things that excites me about Pose Fair is all the ideas that come from the items official bloggers receive to help promote the stores and the event itself. I am taking full advantage of this by doing something fun with the Vol. 1 Male and Female Dance Poses by CuCa Poses. From the exact moment the ad was released I had a solid idea cemented in my head.

It is an added bonus that “All Night Long Bacdrops” by illuZion are both gifts to visitors to Pose Fair. The poses and the backdrop that I am using in black (pink is also available) work hand in hand to provide a great scene for club life. My days of going to clubs have long since past (though the desire to go to them when I could was fairly low) but at least it is much different in the virtual world.

My first thought going into using these poses was that I wanted to showcase both the male and female ones and gives me a reason to include Brenna. She has a great style and could easily be a blogger if she wanted to be but I respect that it is not her thing; at least I can ask her to pose for me and she does it without hesitation and offers inspiration that is valuable.

Each of these sets has 6 poses with an added bonus pose for purchasers of the FATPACKS with mirror versions included also. I had fun going through the sets to choose the two best poses for Brenna and I to ensure that our motions look as fluid as possible.

CuCa Poses – Male Dances Vol. 1 / Female Dances Vol. 1

  • Bento enabled poses (bento viewer needed for proper use)
  • Pose Stand and Static Poses in each pack.
  • Single poses sold individually as well as in a FATPACK option
  • 6+1 Exclusive FATPACK Poses (Mirrors included)
  • Vol. 2 sets are also available
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair until 01/26/19

Another sure thing when I began planning this scene is I knew what song would be the theme for it but I decided to go with a twist. “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” was the only true choice that I could go with and it’s one of the songs that put Whitney Houston on the map but I decided to use the cover version by Bootstraps which pays tribute to the original in an amazing way.

Either version would have been great to use but going with the more recent version was easier to decide on because everyone knows Whitney’s original version and I wanted to share with readers the cover because I am a fan of Bootstraps and if others find his work through me and enjoy it then it puts a smile onto my face.

There are very few things that are better than discovering new music.

For the ladies who love gachas (and I can safely say that many as well as us fellas do) there is the {Date Night} dress set from Vanilla Bae. If you are not familiar with this store and it would surprise me if there was someone who didn’t, they offer clothing that through scripting can be removed to show what I would politely refer to as unmentionables. They do offer unscripted versions for women that are not into that kind of attire. This set includes several versions of the Corset Dress which Brenna is wearing the short version (there is a much longer one with a slit along the side). The two RARE versions are both of the dresses in the adult version in all the colors offered, however, they are called Lootbox 1 and 2 because of the event they are in (which is called LOOTBOX).

On that note I think I have left you with enough information on this blog entry and look forward to the next few as I start to wind down my coverage for Pose Fair. This has been a very productive month for myself and the blog and if recent developments pan out (vague I know) there will be even more exciting things to share with all of you.

Keep your heads up and also the conversation (topic doesn’t matter!) It has been my honor and I will be back again very soon with another installment.

All the best,

B

[#582] Can’t Forget You

When anybody says your name I wanna run away,
I keep remembering I can’t forget you
It doesn’t matter when I try it happens anyway,
It’s been forever and I can’t forget you

My Darkest Days, ♫Can’t Forget You

From time to time I create playlists for my iPod (yes I still do that and don’t even know how to use Spotify) and these songs potentially serve as audio accompaniments for blogs based on the photos I have taken or vice versa. It just so happens that the mood that came from my visit to the MoB sim helped me choose the song to base this post on.

“Can’t Forget About You” is the anthem for anyone who has been in a relationship that has for some reason or another ended and has left a profound mark. As in one of those that has you reeling for a long time on both the good or bad side of the spectrum. I can safely say I have been in one of those in my lifetime so what about you?

While I was exploring MoB I came across the bar that helped me round out the image in my head of how I wanted to photograph the scene. It goes along with the lyrics in the song about essentially drinking your life away because of the hurt (which obviously I wouldn’t recommend). I also wanted to give it a last call kind of vibe as well.

Depending on what items I want to focus on in the blog I take more than one shot but with this I took a few with different lighting and worked them together to get one picture that I feel stands out on its own without having a need for another photo or close up.

The pose set featured in this post is by KMA Poses and is called “Standing Pose Set”; it is designed for male use but I see the potential of going out of the box and maybe with minor adjustments a woman could utilize it as well. It has five poses in the set and also includes mirrored versions to find your best angle and lighting which is definitely a plus.

Finding new pose stores is what I think is core for the Pose Fair itself it gives designers that may not be widely known a chance to shine their brightest and connect with photographers and bloggers to help them reach their vision for a certain scene, profile shot or even just something to throw up on social media. My list of new stores is increasing which is alright with me.

KMA Poses – Standing Pose Set

  • Bento enabled poses (bento viewer required)
  • 10 poses in all (5+5 mirror versions)
  • Static and poseball versions in the set
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair until 01/26/19

My outfit has nothing as far as new releases but the top I am wearing recently became a part of my wardrobe. FE Style has a long sleeved shirt that when I bought it was a part of the Saturday Sale a few weeks ago and had I tried it on sooner I would have went back and purchased more of them. I don’t have a problem with going back and getting more off sale if need be but I’ll see how things go.

The jeans I have on are becoming a staple in my current favorite list. Cold-Ash’s “HOLLOWAY Ripped Jeans” just look great on me and with the option of several denim colors I can wear them for different photos and not be overly repetitive; it also makes sense that they work well with the “ROVIDH Shirt” that I was just writing about.

Lately I have been coming back to the “Slicked Back Hair” by Deadwool and “Bristle Beard” by Birth because the combination seems to help me feel the most like how I want to represent myself virtually. I go through phases much like many others with style of hair or beard with nearly unlimited choices at my disposal but familiar doesn’t hurt in my book.

On that note I think the bar is closed up on this blog and unlike the old saying “You don’t have to go home but you can’t stay here”, you are allowed to browse through previous entries and possibly leave some words of encouragement or just say that you stopped by. I should certainly take my own advice on that and visit some other wonderful bloggers and let them know that their work is fantastic. I am signing off now but keep your heads up, stay positive, and keep up the conversation.

Warmest regards,

B

[#581] A Conspiracy

Can you tell me wrong from right
Do you know when to freeze or take flight
Can you tell me more or less
I got to know-confess

The Black Crowes, ♫A Conspiracy

Sometimes starting blogs this late in the day could turn out interesting. I say that because the later in the day it gets the less razor sharp my mind is and I’ve determined that a lot of my blog writings tend to be rambles and I apologize for that. I’ve also been thinking about the way in which I’m writing as well and weighing the pros and cons of how to address certain things.

At times when I am writing I feel like I have an audience but using the word “you” bugs me for some reason. It runs along the same lines as using the world sponsor and yes the brands that I blog for are essentially sponsoring me by allowing me to feature their products in my blog but it just seems impersonal to me. Why I seem to dislike using “you” as a form of acknowledging readers is something I should take a more in depth look at.

I believe that I can get better at doing these write-ups without making them sound as if they drone on over and over potentially losing the audience I am trying to connect with. Bare with me while I continue to work all of this out and I appreciate everyone’s support in not only helping me become better as a photographer but also a writer. I will resume using the term “you” again to see how it goes and if I decide it is not working for me then I will continue on with the way I have addressed people before using the third person method.

Last night during a brainstorming session, I was thinking of the music of artists that I have not used before or sparingly used as soundtracks when it dawned upon me that I have given very little attention to The Black Crowes. Their music holds good memories for me as I recall spending time with my real life brother listening to them and it was always a good time no matter what music we listened to, however, it gave me a greater appreciation of different types of music.

Their brand of southern rock was something that as a younger man may or may not have played air guitar to (that was a big thing back then so laugh if you must!) I remember even getting the cd that this song is on and the pressing of it I have is one which the cover had been modified as the original one was taken from a cover of Hustler magazine (for those of you and I doubt there are many are uninitiated is a dirtier version of playboy). Of course I did not realize this until a long time after but it didn’t make any difference to me.

The music is what mattered the most.

My look for this blog is comprised of what I feel best resembles The Black Crowes frontman, Chris Robinson’s appearance in the video for “A Conspiracy”. Call it a combination of The Crow meets The Serpent and The Rainbow, gothic in nature so I put on some guyliner, black lipstick and painted my nails to create a look that is close enough.

X.T.C PoSes’s “I Don’t F@#k Wit You” is the pose set featured in today’s post; the attitude these poses bring is the precise mood I want to display. Coming up with the idea to use the nostalgic television “Standby” as my backdrop for added effect is a nice touch as well. Five poses make up this set and I used two different ones between the photos I have taken.

There have been many good single male poses for the Pose Fair but truthfully this particular one has been the most fun to photograph. I have become more of a fan of X.T.C PoSes as time has gone on and look forward to having an opportunity to feature them again in the near future; I would also like to mention that there is also another single male pose pack exclusively at the event as well.

Check it out because I’m sure you’ll be glad you did!

X.T.C PoSes – I Don’t F@#k Wit You Pose Pack

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

As a blogger I get to discover new stores all the time but it is also nice when I find something I like from one that I have not worn in a long time. For example I cannot remember the last time I wore something from Breath. It is a store that I would consider myself a fan of because they cater more to a dark style of clothing (staying within the monotone range).

The thing to do now before events open (if access to the outer area of an event is possible) is to use your camera to look inside to browse items that have already been put up for sale; it’s a great way to beat some of the rush and also full regions (such a pain!) Breath’s latest outfit caught my eye because of the pocket chain that attaches to the pants as well as the abstract design on the style I am wearing. I knew I needed to have it and at the time I did not know what type of photo I would take wearing it but the timing worked out great.

Breath – SPset (B+HAND GARA)

  • Original mesh
  • Included chain add-on
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake) and Signature (Geralt & Gianni)
  • Exclusive to Man Cave until 02/11/19

The long hair I have on is “Aaron” by Vango. When I tend to have my hair longer like that for photos or just every day wandering this is my first go to unless I choose to wear something with a hat for outdoors (winter) photos. It’s one of my favorite styles that I know won’t let me down whenever I use it. Also the guyliner I mentioned at the beginning of the blog is a part of the “Ian” skin HUD by Session Skins and the lipstick/fingernails a part of the CATWA and Signature Gianni body HUDs respectively.

On that note I am at a spot in the blog I feel comfortable ending on. I have a few more days with items from Pose Fair that ideas keep running through my head so I’m going to take advantage of it the best I can (which means possibly doing a female single post as well for a change). Once the big Pose Fair finishes the February pop-up Valentine’s Edition starts the second week which before I likely would not have been excited about but I admit that I am looking forward to it…what a difference a year makes.

Warm regards (especially to those of you in the path of the winter vortex),

[#580] Blood In The Water

We’ll never get free
Lamb to the slaughter
What you gon’ do
When there’s blood in the water

grandson, ♫Blood // Water

At first I had not planned on doing a blog post today but I felt a little bit inspired by a few things which meant a super quick post for everyone to look at. Once again I’m stepping out of my normal boundaries as I’ve always kind of wanted to shoot a photo like this but never had the courage to do so. It just took a tattoo, pose set and a shower build for me to complete it and maybe it’s about time?

One thing that I know for sure is never show it all just give a little bit and leave the rest to the imagination. I feel like my secondary shot also perhaps may have gone outside of my comfort level but if I am ever going to get over the fear of always playing it safe then I have to take risks (albeit tasteful ones). As I said a few key items helped me move towards the darkside a little closer, one of them being the “Dragon Lord Tattoo” by MooLoo Body Art.

I also thought I was finished with covering items from The Men Jail but I remembered this tattoo is a part of the January round so with about a week left of the event it was the right time to show it off. I like the incorporation of the flames mixed in with the skulls and what I would liken to Japanese masks which leads me to believe that it is an Asian inspired design. I’m not the creator of the item but that is what I would care to guess if I were asked about it more in depth.

Given the choice between the fresh and faded applier types, I chose to go with faded as it gives it a more worn look and I’ve also spoke about my feelings for fresh tattoos on the grid. This definitely looks awesome from front and back which I made sure to give equal showing of and hope that it is a good enough reason to take another trip to TMJ this month.

MooLoo Body Art – Dragon Lord Tattoo

  • Faded and Fresh ink opacity Applier HUDs
  • Applier for Belleza (Male & Female), Maitreya, Omega, Signature and SLink mesh bodies
  • Exclusively @ The Men Jail until 01/28/19

Recently within the last few blog posts I used a pose set from Lush Poses for The Men Jail and I’m once again using this stores pose set that is currently a part of the Pose Fair for January. Everyone knows of the old calendar’s with females in them (they still have them today so to speak) but this pose set is based off of what an all male calendar would be like and is appropriately named “12 Months Of Hunkiness”.

The prospects were good with finding the right pose (well poses since I used two for this shoot) and angles that ensure that I wouldn’t be showing anything extremely naughty because it would make me have to label it a certain way when I post to Flickr and that’s just not something I enjoy doing so it’s safe enough and that’s good enough for me.

As the name also implies there are 12 different poses (with mirrors for 24 total) that vary from laying, sitting and also standing which gives it not only a variety but also value as well. I like the concept of the pose set so I’m giving props to Lush for making another solid set of poses for men to use and for others to enjoy after the photos have been taken.

Lush Poses – 12 Months Of Hunkiness

  • Bento enabled poses (bento viewer required)
  • 12 different poses (each with mirror versions)
  • Poseballs, Pose Stand, and Static Poses in pack

N21 starts it’s January/February round today and Modulus is releasing a new medium length hanging style, the “Adrian Hair”. When it comes to hair there really isn’t much out there that has a wet look and I figured that with this hair hanging down in the front that it gave the best appearance of the water from the shower hitting it just right so that I could wash it.

As a fan of the store and their releases, this is really high at the top of my current favorites list next to “Leo” which I have enjoyed that style as well. I also realize that Modulus has a style for just about every scene I come up with an idea for so that tells me that our partnership was meant to be and I hope that whenever I do blog the products that it shows in what I say and also how the photos present themselves too.

Modulus – Adrian Hair

  • 100% “nex-gen” alpha hair
  • 5 color HUDs + integrated color picker (sold individually)
  • 40 color FATPACK also available
  • Left and right mirror versions included
  • Exclusively @ N21 until 02/12/19

To aid me in completing this scene I used the “Wet Body & Face” by Izzie’s to give my skin more of a wet and glistening look but most importantly the background in the scene is the new “Minimalistic Walk In Shower” by Fourth Wall that is a part of the freshly opened round of FaMESHedX. For those who are not initiated it is like the original FaMESHed event but with a more adult selection of clothing and furniture.

I would have used the animations in the shower itself but it would have prohibited me from using the pose set; usually I don’t use builds or furniture with animations unless I use the included ones but I had to make a sacrifice to get the shot I wanted. Also I didn’t think it would be that great of an idea to do a video showing some of what it did as it would likely not be kept on YouTube very long.

On that note I think this is all the mileage I am going to get with this particular entry but I will be back with some more Pose Fair goodness before the time runs out on that. I appreciate everyone who has left comments here or on social media as of late because it’s been a great motivating factor for me which helps me keep working at kicking down the doors to new opportunities.

For all of the people that have had cold weather events recently stay warm, dry, and safe and know that I’m in the same boat as you. Keep the conversations going until we all converge on this page again!

Warmest regards,

B

[#579] Snowblind

Let the winter sunshine on
Let me feel the frost of dawn
Build my dreams on flakes of snow
Soon I’ll feel the chilling glow

Black Sabbath, ♫Snowblind

I‘m back to my usual kind of blog after experimenting a little over the last few posts; was my venturing past my boundaries successful? The jury isn’t in yet but I think if I sprinkle a little bit of this and that in my work and not do so much of the same old same that it could be beneficial to me and my creativity. Pose Fair has really been helping me out with that as well giving me the ability to do all different kinds of photos (singles and couples, and before the round is over maybe even friend or group ones).

HCXII has been on my list of pose stores to blog for a while now and I wasn’t able to swing anything from the October ’18 round of Pose Fair but I made darn sure that I wasn’t losing that opportunity this time. They’ve released a series called Hellgrind and there is a set for males, females, and a male friends set all with guitar props. The set I am using is the Hellgrind “Haedulus” which includes 2 different versions of the guitar that when poses the users avatar when worn. There are 6 different poses to choose from so that rocking out in a photo never seemed sweeter.

This pose combine with the arctic type background gave me the opportunity to crank up some Black Sabbath and use “Snowblind” as this blog posts theme. I also wanted to make it look like one of those old school 80’s or 90’s videos where the lead guitarist is in some remote location just grinding away on his axe like it wasn’t out of place. That’s my bit of nostalgia for the time being and it was pretty fun getting this together in little to no time flat.

HCXII – Hellgrind Haedulus Prop and Pose Set

  • Mesh guitar prop (two variations)
  • Wear guitar to activate pose
  • 6 poses in the set
  • Exclusively @ Pose Fair until 01/26/19

One of the cool things being a blogger for different brands is that I get introduced to new events that one of the stores I blog for is participating in; the most recent of which is Salon 52. This is an event strictly for hair stores and while most of what I have seen so far has been geared towards women I feel that in time the amount of male items involved will increase (hopefully that is). Modulus is one of the stores involved in this event and gladly for me is that most of their production is being the stylist to the fellas on the grid, myself included.

The hair that they have at Salon 52 is something I thought definitely works for the rockstar vision I had for my look; the “Tony Hair” which is a medium length flowing hair does the job. It helps me give the appearance that I’m shredding away in a snow laced middle of the arctic where it is fairly windy; my hair blowing around. This is a prime example of what I was writing about as it pertains to Modulus hair, it’s not just a flat boring hairs and gives the appearance of moving (such as the wind blown look).

Modulus – Tony Hair

  • 100% “Nex-Gen” Alpha Mesh
  • 5 color packs + integrated color picker HUDs
  • 40 color FATPACK also available
  • Left and right mirrored versions
  • Exclusively @ Salon 52 until 02/04/19

Besides the pose and hair, the only other item that I haven’t previously blogged is the jacket I have on from a store named Kio. I was going through the items list from The Saturday Sale and it interested me enough to take a closer look. The store itself is pretty new as there were only a few items there but I figure it will expand more as new things are made; after testing and making sure it fit I quickly snapped it up.

I returned to the platform where I place down backdrops and get dressed for blogs more often then not and this may be considered a lazy tactic but I like how the Gabriel pants and boots from the motorcycle blog I did with Brenna looked so I put those on and called it good. I wanted to my friend Lucky’s place (which is in the arctic) and began working.

This post came together rather quickly which was nice because I have been tired the last couple days from RL stuff. Anytime I can take a photograph and get it ready and write so that it is ready to post the next morning is a blessing and helps to keep the workflow steady like a stream (much like the near frozen lakes behind me in the photo).

On that note I am going to close this up and leave the credits behind. Plenty more to do but for now I am going to set this to post in the morning so I can get a fresh start and share it with the social medias while most of the world is still conscious. Keep the conversations going and I shall catch everyone again real soon!

Warmest regards,

I don’t mind pretending I’m someone else, whoever you want me to be
As long as I’m inside you, you’ll never want me to leave
It’s the way you want it

The Blank Theory, ♫Addicted

In my last blog I peeled a few layers off of what my normal blog style is usually and with that mindset, I chose to take it a little further even and get Brenna involved in the process; she was absolutely encouraging and wonderful with this process as I push my boundaries even further. With the help of RM Poses, we were able to explore uncharted territory in my photography and blogging portfolio.

“Strawberries For You” is a couples pose that shows a sensual side of feeding your lover the tasty fruit. I find that this pose is classy and has great views in several different directions, which I’ve explored as well during the photo session for this blog post (and why wouldn’t I all things considered). I have to make a note to those who might be interested in this pose because of the fact that with how it is set up there is some adjusting that will need to be done especially if both avatars are of different heights. It’s a fantastic pose and I’m glad I got the opportunity to be able to use it.

RM Poses – Strawberries For You Pose and Prop

  • Bento enabled couples pose (bento viewer required for use)
  • Pose stand with built in tray of strawberries and mouth strawberry
  • Exclusively @ Pose Fair until 01/26/19

Also like my last blog I have a few more items from The Men Jail event to just about wrap up my coverage for January. With showing more skin if that is what I’m going to do then why not show ink on my pixels as I do have some in the real world but not as much as I can have in the virtual landscape. “The Demon Horror” Tattoo by KAOS Tattoos is definitely an interesting look and lives up to its name.

With tattoos I tend to usually only apply the light versions but it is also nice to have the medium and dark options as well just in case I were to ever change my mind. I just have a weird way with tattoos and the dark (or fresh as I refer to it as) option just doesn’t really translate virtually as it does in the real world. It isn’t the fault of any tattoo makers it is just what they have to work with. This is a creative design and I could also see wearing it during a role-play situation where a character might be into a darker lifestyle.

Many times I have said that I don’t blog accessories like necklaces or bracelets often but I could not pass up the opportunity to take a look at the “Dan Bracelet” by NaaNaa’s. It is a beaded style with all the things I happen to like (such as skulls and a cross) which given the overall theme of this post makes a lot of sense as “Addicted” by The Blank Theory serves as the soundtrack to this post. I feel like it could be interpreted many ways as how the addiction party plays out but I’m going with the human interaction aspect of it.

KAOS Tattoo – Demon Horror

  • Belleza, Maitreya, Omega and SLink Appliers included
  • 3 tones to choose from (Light, Medium and Dark)
  • Exclusively @ The Men Jail until 01/28/19

NaaNaa’s – Dan Bracelet

  • Original mesh
  • Resizable
  • 5 metals changeable via HUD
  • Left and right bracelets included
  • Exclusively @ The Men Jail until 01/28/19

Modulus is once again back as my hair stylist with their latest, the “Bailey Hair” that is currently at Equal10. There are a lot of quality events that Modulus releases products at but I think Equal10 is truly the most visual appealing because of the cool retro 80’s layout. I could be a bit biased because that is something I know a little bit about.

This is a short to medium length hair swept off to the sides (which you can choose with both left and right versions of the hair). It’s also nice that their are little flyaway strands which is something I can tell you Modulus excels at and it’s not flat hair that doesn’t have any kind of action or movement because who wants that? On top of that the brand gets better and better all the time which keeps its core base of loyal shoppers coming back with more joining the family every day.

Modulus – Bailey Hair

  • 100% original “nex-gen” alpha mesh
  • 5 Color HUD packs + integrated tinting within HUD
  • 40 color FATPACK also available
  • Left and right mirror versions
  • Exclusively @ Equal 10 until 02/05/19

Some other notes to cover is that Brenna has a few event release items as well which consist of the “NaturalLite Lashes #2” by Mai Bilavio and “Glow” tattto by Speakeasy that can both be found at the Access event. For the fellas that might have significant women in their lives I can definitely recommend the “Simplicity Lingerie” by Moon Amore that is waiting to be had at Collabor88. This is certainly an attention grabber that any lingerie connoisseur will want to have in their collection.

Lastly, with the amount of blogs I have posted this month, it should give a lot of reasons to go hit the hot events and take a look at what is new across the grid. If I were a regular customer, I would certainly be browsing all of these events hoping to find fun things. On that note I think it is time to wrap things up and get things set for the next blog which I’m not sure what I’m going to do yet as I can now actively blog any item from the Pose Fair I choose so that gives me a lot of options and perhaps way too many ideas.

Keep the conversations going and perhaps maybe I started some new ones just now!

[#576] Dangerous Night

What a dangerous night to fall in love
Don’t know why we still hide what we’ve become
Do you want to cross the line?
We’re running out of time
A dangerous night to fall in love

Thirty Seconds To Mars, ♫Dangerous Night

Unlike previous rounds of Pose Fair, I was able to add myself to be able to blog couples poses from the romantic category. Brenna has been a blessing in disguise with her willingness to help me bring the poses of wonderful creators to life with the visions I pull from my head. As much as I consider myself a male blogger and this a male blog overall, this has become almost somewhat of an all purpose place for me to be creative with things that catch my attention.

During the process of taking the photos for this post, I only chose one out of the few I took because to me it was the epitome of what I saw in my head. After completely a few minor adjustments, I showed it to Brenna and she absolutely loved how it turned out and as such is going to end up as a portrait in our home. I can honestly say that means something to me that we can chronicle things like this and remember them as they are affixed to a wall.

Hazeel is one of the stores participating at Pose Fair that I’m unfamiliar but from their releases this round they are on my radar and I will surely be looking out for more of what they do. Their “Enticing” pose has what I would say is a touch of elegance with the chair prop and the way the poses give the idea of a couple that are super classy.

I like that it differs from other couple’s poses that are super up close and lovey (which there is nothing wrong with); it gives a different perspective of how two people can be close with each other without intimacy just a longing look. I find it also wonderful that the included chair prop went well with at least one part of the house that we could photograph.

Hazeel – Enticing Pose & Prop

  • Bento enabled pose (bento viewer required)
  • Mesh chair prop included (with poses inside)
  • Poseballs for both male and female props also included
  • Static poses for male and female included
  • Exclusively @ Pose Fair until 01/31/19

For my look I took things that I previously blogged that I really liked (the “Leo hair” from Modulus and the “Grayson Roll-Up Trousers” from Cold-Ash) and paired it with a shirt/vest combination by Tori Toricelli that I picked up at the December round of the Man Cave. I planned it use it for another photo down the line but I changed my mind at the last minute and used it for this shot; it’s also possible that I can maybe use it then too if enough time passes.

While I stuck to going with older items, Brenna is the new items champion as she brings to her look a bunch of items from Collabor88 including the “Julie” hair from Exile and the “Fancy Blazer and Pants” separates by Pixicat. I really loved the style of the outfit she has on because of how classy the picture is and the ad for the pose shows the female with a dress on. Brenna seems to be a lot better at going outside of traditional ideas then I am but I’m certainly working at it and what I can say now is that will be sooner than later.

On that note I am going to move onto the credits phase of the post due to the fact that the pose and prop set are the only truly new items featured in this post besides Brenna’s items. This also gives me the ability to publish this post and get to work on whatever happens to be next, I’ll probably throw in another entry that’s just me before I get to the other blog post that I also shot with Brenna recently.

Many thanks to anyone who put up with what I consider my ramblings. Whether I know it or not, I do this more than just for me and also because it brings a lot of enjoyment even when it seems like the post is somewhat of a downer (we all have our moments and that is how this thing called life works). Until the next time keep the conversations going!

Warmest regards,

B
