[#367] So Let’s Start Over…

I feel so mad
I feel so angry
I feel so callous
So lost, confused, again

I Feel So” –  Box Car Racer  ♫Listen

Hello and welcome back! Glad to see that you’ve come to take a look at the next entry in the ever growing space I like to call “These Conversations Kill”. I have a little bit of everything going on in this one, a bit of this and that if you will. Sometimes I don’t always have the inspiration for the work I do before I shoot the photos and that makes it difficult much like when a musician has words but no music to put it with. That was the case with this but as I was kind of going through different thoughts and themes I came across on of my old favorite side projects of Tom Delonge of Blink-182 fame. I am actually a fan of all of the projects the guys in Blink have done but one of my favorites is Boxcar Racer. It seems to have just come out at a time in my life that it really resonated with me and has been something I cherish and go back and listen to every now and again. I’m glad I’ve found use for it in this medium as well.

I was not able to get it done in time but the skin that I’m wearing originally appeared at the Limit8 event but was not one of the limited items so I would like to say that if it is not in the main store, it should be soon. The “ERWIN” skin from STRAY DOG is really a handsome devil. In the package you get two different HUDS (one with eyebrows and one without so you can use your own). Each one has an option of a regular face or freckles if that is something that suits you visually.

For my hair, I dug out an old favorite that I haven’t worn in a while and thought it worked for the mechanic look that I was going for. Longer and somewhat messy looking is the Jakob from Damselfly. I bought the variety pack for this because I like having the basic tones just in case I’m feeling like trying something different than my usual blacks or browns.

I made it pretty easy with the wardrobe this go round, however, the unfortunate part is at the moment flow. does not have an in-world store and the “Air Jumpsuit” is not quite yet up on their marketplace location. It originally appeared at the ULTRA event for April but has already since closed. This package in its original form (when it becomes available on the marketplace it may change) is a Fatpack and is fitted for the [SIGNATURE] Gianni body only and has 4 different colors included (Black, Blue, Green, and Red).

On my feet are the “Chris” sneakers from PARKER. These were originally a part of the March round of n21 and somehow got lost within my closet…whoopsy! I managed to get them out of the box and slapped them right on my feet and off to work I went. The full pack of shoes comes with a HUD that you can change the various parts of the shoe which makes it a practical value considering if you did get more than one you would probably come close to the price anyway.

I’ll confess I am not much of a decorator and find it pretty hard most times to put a scene together without it taking a large amount of time. Though when I found myself looking at the shopping guide for the Draftsman event I saw a bunch of things that peaked my interest and I was off and running. NOMAD has up for sale the “AUTO REPAIR SHOP” which is a nice garage with an office and with the right items could be fully stocked and used for any kind of community or role-play situation.

The “Damien” Pose set from An Lar Poses is one that was first available at this years Pose Fair which has now since concluded; has 6 different poses with mirrors which I find handy if you favor a certain side photographically.

Now that you know what has all gone into what you see visually, I’ll kindly leave you with the credits so you can venture to the stores and events so you can give things a look yourself and find what best works for you! I look forward to our next encounter but until then as always, stay stylish fellas!

[#324] Forgive & Forget

post324_01 post324_02

Let me down, let me down like only you know how
shut me out, shut me out forgive and forget…

Forgive & Forget” –  A Day To Remember    ♫Listen

The beginning of the month is one of my favorite times because it means the return of my favorite events with new rounds of things just waiting to jump into my shopping cart. The Men’s Dept. is probably by far my most favorite when it comes to just the gents as far as things go. It is hard not to go wild purchasing things left and right when I am there but I have learned to reign in it a little bit but that doesn’t mean I won’t be displaying some of the best and favorite things from it through the course of the month.

From TMD for this particular look, I chose to wear the British Duffle Coat by ::K:: because I like coats that have a longer length. It has just always been one of my more preferred styles. It’s also nice that it has the built in shirt/sweater combination which comes with a HUD so that you can change their colors to get the exact combination that is perfect for you.

It is just close enough to the end of the December round of Men Only Monthly, which shuts down on the 15th so they can switch everything for the new January round on the 20th. From this event I picked coordinating pants from Ascend. The Hideo Formal Trousers go excellent with the Triple Monk Shoes. The choice of colors for the trousers was a hard decision but I felt going with a monochrome outfit seemed to suit me best. The best thing is that they come in Fitmesh for most standard avatars and also for the mesh body crowd with [Signature] Gianni, Adam, SLink Physique, and also TMP.

The shoes have an unfitted option for standard avatars and also for [Signature] Gianni, Adam, SLink, and TMP as well. The best part is that they come with a HUD to change the type of socks you want to wear. I love the choices they have added, argyle is a style that I prefer in the real world so it’s great to see it represented here on the grid.

The Crossroads event seems to be getting a lot of my attention as I used products from it in my last posting and has made it again this time as well.

tram has released a very nice long hair that flows off to the left side of the body, over the ear with a slight little pony bob at the back. Being that I have a hard time choosing hair colors I grabbed the full package which comes with your usual monochrome, brown, and blonde tones but it also has some really nice ombre tones as well which is what I used for this look. For the other item for this event I am using a pose that is a part of The Dean set from an lar [poses]. Poses for me are kind of hard to describe but I like the overall mood of this set and hope to be able to use more of them for upcoming projects.

Lastly, MESANGE has new eyes available at The Chapter Four. The Sekhmet Eyes come in 16 tones and have a newly updated HUD so that you can have different sized iris/pupils. I think it’s a welcome upgrade to the original products that were previously released. MESANGE just keeps getting better and better over time.

We’ve come to the part of the post where we part ways and I give you the credits for the look so that you can go check out these for yourselves and explore all the things offered at these great events. I’ll see you out on the grid and until then, stay stylish fellas!
