[#425] Ho Hey!

I don’t think you’re right for him
Look at what have might have been
If you took a bus to China Town
I’d be standing on Canal and Bowery
She’d be standing next to me.

Ho Hey♫ – The Lumineers

I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday weekend (those of you who celebrate/observe Thanksgiving). Most everyone is enjoying leftovers while going over some of their real life shopping excursions. I am a little bit under the weather so I haven’t really been out as there really wasn’t much that caught my fancy but I did manage to hit some sales in-world bringing home some new poses to intermingle with some of my scenes.

With the last few days focusing on those that I’m thankful for: family, friends and colleagues but this year I’m most thankful for the special person in my life. She’s certainly helped me see a lot of things that I might not have before and this scene and song choice is dedicated to her.

I have some really cool things I am featuring from my brand partners in this look. Modulus has returned to making hair and at the Industrie event, they have released the “Max” hat and hair combination. I’ve even had the pleasure of speaking with the owner of Modulus, Chucky Hollak, and I have it on good authority that this is only the beginning and there will be new future hairstyles in the works. If this is the beginning of something new then consider me excited.

MESANGE has new eyes up for sale at the newly restocked Men Only Monthly for Nov/Dec. Of course I will give you the details down below in the credits so I can keep this as short and sweet for you as possible. I tend to get long winded at times when I have things I like and want to talk about.

Another new exciting thing is Go&See who are well known for skins for both men and women as well as eyes have ventured into the pose market. One of their first set of four male pose releases is also available at Men Only Monthly. More on those as well down in the credits as well.

With having had several items from Industrie and Men Only Monthly in the last few posts, I’m also giving some love to ULTRA, The Men’s Department and Man Cave in this post. I find that a small amount of events always get the most attention from me and it’s not that I don’t visit other events, it just seems I am just find more that suits my style. I’m always on the look out for new events and brands to feature in my looks/scenes and that won’t change.

It’s that time for me to turn you over to the credits and more of my little observations/ramblings if you will as this adventure has reached it’s finishing point. I hope to see you back again the next time for whatever idea my brain churns out so be well until then!

Onto the next conversation…

HAIR⊱ Modulus – Max Hat & Hair @ IndustrieNEW
This hat is very well made with great texturing and has a HUD to change its color. The tuft of hair that hangs out in front also offers 5 different color packs that you can pick from or you can pick up the FATPACK and wear it however you are feeling on that day.

HEADLeLutka – Andrea v 3.1

EYES⊱ MESANGE – Lihir Eyes @ M.O.MNEW
The colors in these 15 new eyes really draw you in as there is a main color with little bits of other colors swirled in for some magical looking eyes. 4 sizes of eyes with an Omega HUD for compatible eyes (CATWA, LeLutka, Logo…etc). Mesh eyes and system eyes are also included so just about everyone who wants these excellent eyes can use them.

FACE⊱ amias – NERO – Ivory @ TMDNEW
A new LeLutka applier that comes in 3 different skin tones and comes with a brow or browless option. 4 different facial hair options are also included in the HUD as well so that you can perfect your look however you want to. You can also purchase the body appliers right at the event as well so if you demo the skin right there and want to take it home you won’t have to go anywhere else before you head home to fix yourself up.

BODYBelleza – Jake

SHIRT⊱ ExalteD – Flannel – Mustard @ ULTRANEW
When it comes to long sleeved shirts and colder weather there’s nothing better than the feeling of flannel. I’ve always had a flannel shirt to wear on top of short sleeved shirts or just by themselves and I have always been comfortable. Finding this at the ULTRA event was a great moment as I was able to have one in my virtual world as well that fit the body that I am wearing now without any hassle. There are several colors at the event to choose from so there is sure to be one you’ll like. I’m only disappointed that it wasn’t released as a FATPACK too because I likely would have given my money for it; I’m so very tempted to return and get at least one more color.

COMPATIBLE With: Belleza (2 versions) and Signature (2 versions) male bodies.

JEANS::K:: Slim Fit Jeans – Used

SHOES⊱ [MODA] BLAKE OXFORDS @ Man CaveNEW
These oxfords are very versatile in the fact that they look good with both jeans as you can see for yourself up above; they also work well with slacks/dress pants. The HUD comes with 26 color options to change 5 different parts of the shoe with (that’s a lot of options and combinations you can come up with) as well as 4 different metals for the eyelets. This is definitely worth the price, an exceptional value.

COMPATIBLE With: Belleza, Signature and SLink male bodies.

Go&See * Dude * Bento Pose Pack (3) @ M.O.MNEW
As I mentioned up above, Go&See has branched out into poses; there are 5 different poses in the pack that require bento enabled hands for the pose to look the way it was intended to. To you guys out there who are into photography and blogging as I am you definitely should check these out if you have not yet because these poses should not be slept on!

[#400] Leave Out All The Rest

After my dreaming
I woke with this fear
What am I leaving
When I’m done here?

Leave Out All The Rest” – Linkin ParkListen

Some time has passed and I’ve had time to process some things but first and foremost I wanted to pay tribute to a musician that has had an impact not only on myself but on countless others. Regardless of whether you like the music of Linkin Park it’s hard to deny that they hold a place in the annals of music legend. Creatively written lyrics and a combination of soft vocals and raw guttural screams they came a long way from the beginning of the rap/rock scene.

When the news broke that Chester had passed a large range of emotions had filled my head. It just seemed like so many people that I admired from a music fan standpoint were suddenly just disappearing. Unfortunately I won’t ever be able to see the band in concert but I will still have the music that was created at my disposal to listen to and remember fondly. My heart truly goes out to his family, friends, and bandmates. The world is missing one light that seemed to flicker bright even when shrouded in so much darkness.

There were a few songs I could have used for the theme of this photo shoot but I think what I chose as the final is the best to represent how I feel and many others as well. If you find yourself needing to talk to someone because you are having a tough time do not be afraid, there is always someone out there with an ear to lend even if you do not think they do. Full credits are below so I will let you dig into those but I also have to say that I did edit one of the record sleeves on the pose prop just in case you like it enough to buy it and see that it is not as it appears here. I will see you all again next time, until then stay stylish fellas.

HAIRBASE/BEARD⊱ .:cheeky:. 3 Days Beard & Hairbase @ M.O.MNEW

Another new round of Men Only Monthly has begun and there are a lot of goodies to check out including this hair and beard combination. You can wear either or both via a HUD (included is one for CATWA and one also for OMEGA applier capable heads). There are several hair color types to choose from so for those of you who wear different colors from time to time as I do, you’ll be represented.

HEADCATWA – Daniel (Bento)
EYES⊱ AG. Silky Eyes @ Shiny ShabbyNEW
FACE⊱ amias – KIAN – Ivory @ TMDNEW
BODYBelleza – Jake

JACKET::GB:: Loose Cotton Jacket Set / Khaki

This jacket was previously a part of last month’s UBER event, however, since that time Takuya Jinn sent out an update for those of you who did not buy it at the event. The update adds a hoodie you can wear with the jacket which I feel was a nice added touch. There are no specific sizes for mesh bodies on this but should work with just about all of them with the use of alpha cuts.

PANTS⊱ M.NA: Saudade @ ROMPNEW

Due to some of the issues I had lately it took me longer to get these put into a look. ROMP is in its last day of being open for this round but there is still time to run out and get these pants. There are lots of features to this as well as denim and leather textures to give you multiple looks. Sizes included for these pants include Belleza, Signature, SLink, and TMP male bodies. The FATPACK has a HUD with 3 extra textures as well as a color picker so that you can create your own flavor to the pants.

SHOES⊱ FLite.-NoMads – Fatpack @ n21NEW

Some time has passed since FLite has come out with a new release but at the n21 event they have come back with a vengeance. The NoMads sneakers are really cool. Reasonably priced and you get all the styles available in the HUD that is included. You really can’t beat it for a pair of shoes from my personal top 5 favorite shoe creators. Sizes included are (there are also sizes for women but as this is a male blog I’m only going to list the ones for the fellas) Belleza Jake and SLink male bodies.

::WetCat:: “Beat Junkie” Prop

Being that I am an audiophile (a lover of music) this pose/prop really caught my attention. It was originally at the Cosmopolitan event but I had purchased it just before the round it was in closed as I had almost forgotten that it was featured there. There are poses inside the prop for the gals as well as unisex poses and each of them are adjustable so you can get the best angle/look that fits you. This was one of the defining parts of this entry as it gelled with the emotion that I was going for.

[#398] Burning Down The House

Watch out, you might get what your after
Cool babies, strange but not a stranger
I am an ordinary guy…

Burning Down The House” – The Talking HeadsListen

I‘ve returned after drawing some inspiration from the olden days of music but adding a little bit of TCK twist to it to make it work. I’ve always been fascinated by the music of The Talking Heads from back when I was younger and still kind of finding my way through what I liked music wise. I think it is because of artists like this I have found an appreciation for many different kinds of music.

Artistically I like to create images that may seem different or odd to some but are perfectly normal to me. That’s the beauty of art, you don’t really have to like it if you don’t want to because at some point there will be someone that will and I am quite alright with that. I know I enjoy it at least so it starts from there.

I managed to find a really great background prop to use for this photo session that made the idea that I had in my head a little easier. At first I was not sure how I was going to pull it off or if I was going to try and use post production but I found an item that fit perfectly.

Covered in this post are items from events such as FaMESHed, Hipster Mens Event, The Men’s Department, and Designer Showcase. I also want to welcome back Avi-Glam as a returning sponsor of this blog. I look forward to featuring your products in the future and I’ve even started with one in this entry from a recently past event. Just so I don’t take up too much of your time I’m going to dive right into the credits and what I have to say about some of the latest and greatest. Thank you to all of you that are reading this whoever you are. I’ll be back soon with more great new items but until then as always, stay stylish fellas!

HAIR⊱ Stealthic – Hysteria @ FaMESHedNEW

Stealthic has been around for a short time as a part of the virtual hair creating scene. What I like best about this brand (which many brands are starting to do as well) is offer a styling HUD so that you can have a variation of it that may sway to either the right or the left of maybe even have it a little more fly-away. It’s just one of the things I consider a value when making a purchasing decision and a feature that I think is being more sought after. With 6 different color packs to choose from (a FATPACK is also available) there’s no reason not to check out this hair.

HEAD⊱ CATWA – Shaheen (Bento)
EYESAG. Gleaming Eyes

From the previous round of Shiny Shabby, these eyes have vibrant tones and make them great for use in just about any kind of thing you do virtually. The package includes HUDS for CATWA, Omega, and LetLutka compatible appliers as well as mesh eyes with a HUD to change between the different colors (6 in total to choose from).

FACE⊱ amias – KIAN – invory @ TMDNEW

When browsing through TMD and seeing a lot of the usual suspects that I have come to know, love, and admire, I came across a new skin by a brand that I had never previously heard of before. Amias really did a good job with the “KIAN” skin (which comes in a choice of 3 tones). Also available at their booth are the body appliers (which you can get for Belleza, Signature, and SLink bodies). This Catwa applier has several options to choose from (no brows to several colored brows as well as clean shaven to two different lengths of stubble). I am very impressed with this product and would recommend it for anyone looking to give something new a try.

JACKET⊱ //Ascend// Marc Jacket – Plain @ FaMESHedNEW

Some time has passed since I purchased a product from Ascend and while I was strolling through FaMESHed I came across their latest release (a jacket/shirt combination) the “Marc” Jacket. Sold individually or as a FATPACK, these jackets have a color change HUD included for the shirt to give you several options to fit your style. I purchased the Plain version, but there are also three other versions available (Denim, Pinstriped and Tweed).

PANTS⊱ //Ascend// Marc Formal Pant – Plains @ Hipster Mens EventNEW

While I cannot officially say these pants were meant to be a part of a whole suit (combined with the Marc Jacket) but I will say that they compliment one another very well. The pants also come in the same styles as the jacket so you can mix and match or stick with the same style. Both the jacket and pants will fit users wearing Adam, Belleza, Signature, SLink, and TMP mesh bodies. Looking for apparel for a weekend wedding or a well dressed night out…check out the Ascend booth at both FaMESHed and Hipster Mens Event.

SHOES⊱ ::GB::Vintage Suit / White ♯ Currently Unavailable

The shoes are a part of a whole suit that was being offered at an event quite a long time ago but since I had them sitting around and they worked with the look I was going for I thought I would wear them. Sadly though they are not available currently but you could always contact the people at Gabriel and inquire about it. There’s no harm in doing so.

HOUSE⊱ D’STOPIAN // Burned to Hell ♯ Marketplace

One thing I never anticipated was actually being able to find a house that was actually on fire. With some scouring over the marketplace I was able to find this build which worked perfectly as a back setting in which my theme was based off of. It also gives off that kind of eerie vibe to it as well if you are able to look close enough.


IE- Choices @ Designer Showcase (4m/5) ♯ NEW

A new item from my sponsors at Image Essentials, this set comes with 5 poses (with 5 included mirrors for a total of 10). I really like pose sets like this that give a sort of suave appeal to them. It almost gives the antagonist of the scene a sense of being a charmer while being completely devious and evil.
