[#498] How’s It Go Again?

All my new friends
We smile at party time
But soon we forgot to smile
At anything else

AJR (feat. Rivers Cuomo), ♫Sober Up

Putting fun (or just funny) scenes together is something I do like to do even though most of the time it seems like everything on this blog is super serious. I like to try and show a little bit of everything when I can so that’s what I’ve got going on in this post. I’d say that I came into contact with this song that I’m using for the soundtrack of the blog about maybe 3-4 months ago when I was traveling and listening to the radio. I thought that it was a really upbeat type of song even though some of the lyrics to it are a bit deep and maybe even troubled. I have at times felt this way in my life and I’m sure many others have too but there’s always someone in our life that brings our spirits up and we might not have seen them recently.

This is dedicated to those people because no matter how long time passes between visits or communication they always have that special place.

As my coverage for my first round as an official blogger of The Men Jail is winding down, I have several different items that are making an appearance here because I wanted to get as much as I could in when it was applicable. The event has such a variety of things so choosing what to show has been a bit of a struggle for me but in a good way. I hear things from others saying that they have hard time blogging items from events because it doesn’t fit what they do or whatever the reason might be but I am of the mentality that I can make just about anything work and I’m going to try win, lose, or draw.

Poses are something that you can always easily apply to a photo because it’s essentially a lifeblood to help you capture something unique (unless you are a landscape or decorative blogger than that does not apply) and {Phantom Animations} latest release “Cart Saga” definitely fits the bill. “Cart Saga” is definitely something fun as who doesn’t remember goofing around in their youth at the grocery or at the local retail chain goofing off with the carts with siblings or friends. It’s very possible that adults may attempt to do this as well to a lot less favorable outcome.

Cart Friends Saga:

  • 5 singles poses
  • 2 friends poses
  • Unisex
  • Includes mesh shopping cart prop
  • Bento compatible

As a part of my look I’m wearing the Purfect “Mesh Beard A 012” which when it comes to mesh beards I figured I’d be tweaking it or trying to tweak it so much that I’d end up getting frustrated and giving up and wouldn’t end up using it but this beard was super easy to do a simple tweak and it fit my face “purfectly” ok that was a bad pun but I have to throw one in there now and then. I seriously like this beard and it’s not so much a hipster style beard and for a moment before I added hair to my look I thought I kinda had the “Eric Young” look going on (if you have no idea who he is hit up Google to learn more about him!)

Purfect Mesh Beard A 012:

  • 8 different hair tones (Fatpack Available)
  • Upper, Lower, and Full beard versions
  • 2 different mustache versions
  • Applier HUDs for both CATWA and LeLutka

My third and final item is from another brand that I’ve heard of but like Purfect is making it’s first appearance here on the blog. MP Style has been around for a while but for some reason I just haven’t gotten around to showing any of their stuff until their TMJ item “Bruno White Shorts” and could also quality as a Bermuda pant as they go past the knee. I am a fan of any short that doesn’t go too far above the knee like your inner thighs have swallowed the material and I know that some people like that style but I don’t feel it looks right on me.

MP Style Bruno Shorts

  • 6 colors to choose from
  • Fatpack available
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake), Signature (Gianni), and SLink Physique

Fortunately I’m able to show off the latest Modulus hair from The Men’s Department with over a week left in the round. Hopefully in the near future I’ll be able to get myself together with taking photos and getting them posted but sometimes my energy levels suck and I just can’t force myself to post something because then I’ll hate it and if I don’t like it how are the brands I am blogging going to like it? It’s a multifaceted process and I’ve made it goal after posting something that I realize I wasn’t feeling 100% to never consider “phoning it in” again.

The “Joey” hair is a short to mid length style that is combed off to the right, I have the sides and back of my head shaved to give it more depth. Hair is another thing much like facial hair that sometimes needs a bit of resize tweaking to look it’s best on you and I didn’t have to do much of that with this product or usually any of Modulus’ hairs.

For this particular scene I’m wearing a tone from the Browns pack as that’s been my signature hair color as of late.

Modulus – Joey Hair

  • 40 colors to choose from (5 different hair packs)
  • Fatpack is also available
  • Color tinting integrated in the HUD

I was also able to get the credits from my buddies look and can tell you that I may have to take a trip to Men Only Monthly to get the A&D “Gregory” shirt because it looks pretty cool. He’s also wearing the latest group gift from Akeruka which is the “Leon” fully loaded Deluxe Mesh Head…yes that’s right you can join their group (it costs only 150L) and you can take home a fully functional mesh head but there’s a catch (as most of the time there is) and that is it is for a limited time only so you have to get to their main location before the 1st of July otherwise you’ll miss out!

My last featured product that also comes from The Men’s Department event are the “Zoe” Sneakers from Native Urban. Don’t let the name fool you this are unisex shoes that you can wear and use for exercising, jogging, or just hanging out with your favorite people. I love that the Fatpack version has so much customization and sure in this photo I played it safe to match my outfit but I can always do something really different in future looks. Native Urban really has a good sneaker game and I’m pretty strict about my footwear.

Native Urban – Zoe Sneakers

  • 8 single colors for purchase
  • Fatpack option available (full 20 color customization)
  • Unisex
  • Male sizes for Belleza (Jake), Signature (Gianni) and SLink Physique

The Men’s Department will keep it’s doors open for this round until the 30th of June so you can take a look at what both Modulus and Native Urban have to offer as well as other top brands for a premier shopping experience. It’s one of the things that easily gets my excitement level up when the beginning of the month starts because I know that new and great guy stuff will be near.

Now that I’ve run out of wind I feel I got a bit heavy handed with writing this entry and could have probably went further but I don’t want to overkill anyone that might be reading or visiting for the first time. I’m going to take a few days and get back into the swing of things and you’ll see something new over the weekend or the beginning of the week (possibly both). Tons of fun things coming up as it’s almost time once again for the next round of Pose Fair as well as a new round of The Men Jail along with commitments to my wonderful brands I’m partnered with.

Hope you enjoy this first week of official summer and until our paths cross again, onto the next conversation…

[#348] All Hell Can’t Stop Us Now

It has to start somewhere
It has to start sometime
What better place than here?
What better time than now?

Guerilla Radio” –  Rage Against The Machine  ♫Listen

It’s now on to entry #3 in These Conversations Kill’s coverage of Skin Fair. This time not only is there a skin but also some ink for those of you who love using your skin as an art canvas.

I’ll start though with the very top of the body and work my way down, seems like the best way to break things down.

At The Crossroads event there is a new release by hair creator “tram”. You can purchase the G0220 style with three different HUD packs to choose from. I thought this style went best with the look I was going for as it seems to fit the different asian trends I’ve noticed lately. A longer pulled back style with some curls left in the front and a small little tail in the back. I really like it along with the textures and I have a feeling that it may have some use in future works.

This is also the third release from MESANGE from their exclusives for the We ❤ RP event. The “Tikal Eyes” have 15 different options for you and for those of you with Omega enabled eyes a HUD to change them as well as the standard mesh versions. Each eye has different iris/pupil sizes for you to stylize yourself.

Modulus’ “Jae-Sun” skin is the second I’ve featured of the three exclusives from Skin Fair. I chose to stick with the included shape and hairbase for this one because it was the best fit for what I was going for. I also chose to use the full eyebrow/beard combination as well for a little more rugged looking assassin. Gives a bit more of an “edge” if you get my drift.

The trend for tattoos on the grid these days seems to lean towards using different images and kind of mashing them up to create a theme. Personally I’m not sure that I understand it but it does tend to make for some cool looking ink and that’s what I feel Dappa has done here. “The Alchemist” grabbed my attention the moment I saw the advertisement. From the image of the knight on the left pectoral to the King Arthur type theme, it was just something I had to have. Provided in the package are the standard tattoo layers and then HUDS for various body types with fresh and faded opacity levels. It’s a must have tattoo and a high favorite of mine in all of the ones I’ve seen offered lately.

Today is the final day of the February/March round of the Signature Event. I’m happy that I got this in even if it is at the 11th hour of sorts but I had to feature the Gabriel bento enabled gloves. There are two versions for sale but I went with the regular version. As much as the version with the ring on the finger called to me, I thought this was best for the idea I was running with.

I have at least one more item to show you before the current round of Men Only Monthly ends on the 15th to restock for the March/April round that begins on the 20th. [Gild] who was once a part of Gabriel has struck out on their own and is off to a good start with some of the items I’ve seen from their brand so far. I’m wearing the “Soft leather easy pants” in the checkered version. I thought that I would do something different since it’s way too easy to just wear a pair of black leather pants and with this being offered it was a refreshing change of pace. Sizes included in the package are for Gianni, SLink Physique, and TMP body style. Sadly there are no standard or fitmesh sizes for this product.

For the backdrop and pose, I’d like to give honorable mention to both MINIMAL and Q-Poses. They helped make this head easier in creating. I picked up the “Illusion Background” from Uber and “The Warrior” pose set was originally available at Cosmopolitan but you can currently pick it up at their main location or at the current round of 2nd Level.

Time for me to get to the next adventure but I hope you like what you’ve seen and head out to these locations for these great items or for items that peak your interests. Until the next time, stay stylish fellas!

post340_01 post340_02

I hope everyone had a great weekend, yeah I know it’s already Tuesday but it still isn’t past the point where you can think about the previous weekend…at least in my mind anyway.

For this current entry I thought I’d do a little relaxing with some light reading and a beverage. And I achieved just that with a little help from Image Essentials and their pose/prop that is exclusively at The Hipster Fair right now. The “Coffee Sophisticate” comes with a chair prop and also comes with a cup of coffee and a magazine that you can wear while in the pose; I also think that is well made and while you can adjust the pose, it was perfect right out of the box for me.

Modulus also has a new release at their mainstore that is worth checking out. “Damien” comes with beard and eyebrow styles together or individually. You can also use your own favorite eyebrow appliers and beards if you want to. You can choose from 5 different skin tones as well to find which one best suits you.

One of my most favorite eye creators, MESANGE, has a new set that is currently for sale at the APPLIQUE event. The “Capriccio Eyes” are very stunning and come in 15 different iris colors. If you’re not familiar with this brand from my previous entries, each single pack comes with a standard pair of eyes, a mesh pair, and also a HUD to change both the mesh set and also omega appliers for those who have those type of eyes. If you purchase the full set, the HUD also includes appliers for Genesis Lab eyes.

I have more new items from events coming up in the entries ahead so I will leave you with some taxi’s/limo’s whatever you choose to call them to pick up any of the items you see that I’m wearing or posing with. Also if you want a cool place to visit and relax, check out “Nouvelles Adventures” which you can find a ride to below.

Until next time, stay stylish fellas!

[#284] I Was Wrong

post284_01I grew up fast
I grew up hard
But something was wrong from the very start
I was fighting everybody
I was fighting everything
But the only one that I hurt was me

The Designer’s Circle event only has a few days left which is why I tell you that you should go just to check out MESANGE‘s “Legend” eyes. There are 15 great eye choices to choose from so you can express whatever mood you happen to have. There is also a two BEAUTY PACK’s available for those who have GENESIS heads and eyes and for those who have eyes that use the OMEGA system. Buy one or buy them all there’s absolutely no way you could go wrong.

TMD is also now in full swing and I’ve got quite a few items in this particular look. Starting with the Clef de PeauDemian” skin for Omega but especially made for the Akeruka line of mesh heads. Going along with that are v.28 version of their eyebrows in Black. I’m really liking the combination and will likely display this again somewhere down the line if not right away.

Deadwool is out in full force with the Pleated Jeans. This particular version is the Painting 1946 of the damaged line. I really like the style of these and they go great with the L&B Swear Santa Cruz shirt that I picked up as well at The Men’s Dept. It’s a very cool and casual look that is perfect for summer.

I can’t forget to mention the Fame FemmeKori” Chucks shoes that can also be found at TMD for the August round. I’m a sucker for shoes like this just because it is a style I consider a must GO TO. There are a variety of styles to choose between whether it be the plain colors or the plaid or geometric designs. If you are a fan of low top shoes, these are for you and you better run and get them while they are HOT!

Lastly I am rocking the “Ronald” Hair from [bade]. This great style was originally part of Hair Fair but things became kind of congested for me and I was unable to display it when it was new. I still think it is awesome and worthy of picking up if you like longer hair but aren’t into having it down past your shoulders.

You have the info, now get yourselves out there and pick some of (if not all of) these awesome items up. Catch you out at the shops! Until next time…
