[#648] It’s Been A Long Day

 

Reach down your hand in your pocket
Pull out some hope for me
It’s been a long day, always ain’t that right

Matchbox Twenty, β™«Long Dayβ™«

 

Inspiration came to me a bit late on this one because I didn’t manage to blog something that was at The Men’s Department while the June round was open. With that in mind I’ve figured out that blogging items such as shoes can be done in other ways than they are intended (wearing them obviously). Putting them in the scene beside me to depict what it is like for someone to have a super long day and then come home to relaxing them in the pool is what I decided to do.

Maybe this will help me come up with scenes in the future that have footwear in them if I don’t have the perfect idea for as part of an outfit. Also consider this more outside of the box thinking because this is probably only the second time I’ve ever done that with footwear (it was in a photo I did where they flew off of me as I was in an out of control shopping cart).

This is certainly the right time to be thinking about wading around in a pool (probably more than just dipping your legs in) because in most places that I’ve seen on the weather have been hit with a bit of sizzle.

The “LANGDON Boots” from Cold-Ash are much like work boots and the HUD from the FATPACK has a lot of different earth tones to choose from (lots of different browns and of course grayscale colors). I enjoy this style but the one thing that I was personally hoping it would have was a way to change the sole colors as each tone has a white sole (which makes it seem out of sorts for me as I tend to enjoy footwear that you can match a similar sole color to the base of whatever style it might be). It’s not entirely a deal breaker but it may limit the ability to match it with a lot of things but still there are plenty that they could be paired with.

Here’s some of the features that are a part of the boot:

  • Original Mesh
  • HUD contains 9 shoe leather colors (9 lace colorways also)
  • Regular and Short Versions (For pants)
  • Add-On socks for regular version
  • HUD to change sock colors also included

These boots can be picked up at the Cold-Ash flagship store but if they have not been added, they should be in the next day or so as the June round of TMD has come to an end and a new round will be starting in a few days.

I‘m also putting together the next post soon that will be a female item feature (the idea came to me when I saw a hair that my son Eli made). This should be a fun one and I don’t want to give up too many details in case I end up getting sidetracked and photo something different plus I’m not really that much of a sharer though but that really isn’t news to most that know me.

[#563] Play A Song For Me

And if you hear vague traces of skippin’ reels of rhyme
To your tambourine in time
It’s just a ragged clown behind
I wouldn’t pay it any mind
It’s just a shadow you’re seein’ that he’s chasing

Bob Dylan, β™«Mr. Tambourine Manβ™«

While it’s been some time since I last posted a blog with a pose set from Image Essentials, it was time to get back in the saddle and show some love to a brand that has shown their loyalty and love for what I do in many ways. In the upcoming year I will make sure that this brand sees that loyalty returned in whatever way I can possible.

Before I get into anything I want to give a shout out to the owner and creator of Image Essentials, Kay Weston. Right now she’s on a small hiatus from creating to take care of some real world things and I wish her nothing but the best and hope that she’s back to doing what she enjoys and that many of us on the grid enjoy in her work.

I‘m going to start out with a prop and pose set by Image Essentials named “Tambourine”. From the moment I saw it thoughts of the song “Mr. Tambourine Man” came floating into my head and most people are most familiar with the version that was recorded by The Byrd’s but I decided on the original by Bob Dylan as it seems to speak to me more and is far less played compared to The Byrd’s.

Each tambourine includes a pose that is triggered when you wear it and also has twp ribbons that can be recolored by a script inside with 4 different colors in which to choose from (Blue, Gold, Green and Red). The colors can be mixed and also matched depending on the desire of person using it. Though the best part of it is that it is intended for female avi’s but I have shown that males can also use it without any major adjustments unless the avi is aggressively muscled.

I greatly enjoyed trying out the different poses in this set until I found the exact one that fit visually with what I wanted to do; I highly encourage a stop to the Image Essentials store for this prop and pose as well as many other great ways to create impactful photography/art.

Image Essentials Tambourine Prop and Pose Set:

  • 5 poses in set
  • Wear mesh tambourine to activate pose
  • Can be used as unisex
  • Available now @ the Image Essential in-world store

Moving from Poses to Hair, the Access Event is the place where the “Ash” hair by Modulus can be found and one might say that it has a slight similarity to the “Owen” hair that I recently blogged but I can tell you that they do have their differences, the most obvious is length as “Ash” is a little longer in how it hangs down on the face. There are varying little wisps as well that make them able to be told apart from the other.

The shorter and mid length hairs that Modulus has been releasing lately has me thinking that having my hair longer is not as important as it once was; I think if they can make me look even remotely as good as the compliments I have gotten then the same can happen for anyone that visits the Access Event to try it out for themselves.

As the year gets closer to a close, in my observation is that Modulus has grown from where it had been in the start of the year and progress like that is what helps a brand thrive and survive and I don’t think that it has to come from just my mouth but also from the countless fans of the brand (such as myself) that cannot wait to see what is in store for 2019.

Modulus Ash Hair:

  • 100% nex-gen alpha mesh
  • 5 color pack HUDs + integrated tinting
  • 40 color fatpack available
  • Left and right mirrored versions
  • Exclusively @ Access Event until 01/07/19

FaMESHed may have closed its doors but my wife and I managed to get in before it did where she pleasantly surprised me with the gift of the Ascend “Jamie Over Shirt” Fatpack that I had been eyeing for quite a while. I am a huge fan of wearing long sleeved buttoned shirts over regular t-shirts (most of the time graphic ones) quite often especially in the colder months. Wearing a regular t-shirt is not as enjoyable when the temps are lower and I’m sure many who in the real world can attest to that live in cold weather states.

In the virtual world I like to wear clothing that I could see being comfortable in outside of it and this fits that description to a tee (see what I did there? πŸ™‚ Ascend fatpacks are full of different color choices and in this case shirt choices as well as graphics that the level of visibility can be changed which is one of the things I look for.

Ascend Jamie Over Shirt FATPACK:

  • Original mesh
  • 30 different shirt colors (Fatpack Only)
  • Individual styles available
  • Shirt Add-on included
  • Shirt HUD has 30 shirt colors and 15 graphic designs
  • Graphic visibility able to be changed within the HUD
  • Available soon in the Ascend in-world store.

I‘m starting to do the count down to New Years and with tomorrow being New Years Eve, I am going to try my best to get one last post to close out 2018. Just in case I am unable to connect with everyone out on the world wide web, I thank all the visitors (especially repeat visitors) for taking a look at what I consider to be fashionable as well as putting my artistic eye to the test.

My apologies for not being the best at closing out these things but it’s just another thing for me to work on in 2019 and I’ll see everyone soon (maybe even sooner than anyone anticipates).

Until our paths meet again,

B

[#473] The Cheap Seats

This town ain’t big, this town ain’t small.
It’s a little of both they say.
Our ball club may be minor league but at least it’s triple A.

Alabama, β™«The Cheap Seatsβ™«

It’s that time of year again, the smell of grass and the crack of bats and a full nine innings (sometimes more) which means the Baseball season is under way. I’ve noticed on social media fellow bloggers & photographers were at it right on opening day but I was preparing something and I wanted to do it without rushing or feeling overwhelmed by it.

The pose fair is about to begin tomorrow and fortunate enough for me the posemakers at Just Posing created a pack of poses called “Batter Up” with five different poses (a mixture of male and female which I’m sure you can get creative and go outside the box and use them all with either gender in mind) to choose from you’ll be able to catch the essence of the great American game. Also the bats are included with the poses so that you won’t have to try and find a compatible bat and figure out how to make it look right, they are included and fit each pose like a glove (haha see what I did there?)


I wanted to capture the spirit of a small time baseball spot something along the lines of what you might have seen in the movie, “The Sandlot” which is one of my top 5 favorite baseball movies of all time. Though I couldn’t quite find all the pieces I needed to make that I decided to be more low key and make something that was more of like a park ball diamond or something that little league and softball teams play on.

I’m not the greatest at set building so I used various things that I had laying around and the way the entire photo session turned out was really a fun process and turned out great. Those are the kind that really boost your confidence and add to the fun of what blogging can be. Yes I am a blogger for Pose Fair but I don’t feel like when I was doing this scene that it was a requirement, it was fun and it made me think of the summer and how I’m going to enjoy being outside not having to wear a jacket and spending time outside smelling the grills around the neighborhood.


For the outfit I went with things that were simple and what is more simple then jeans and a t-shirt? I could have looked in my closet and found something I’ve already worn but I had my eye on a basic tee at the Hipster Men’s Event made by CHEERNO, who we all knew as someone who made various mesh accessories, skins, you name it and after a break he’s back to creating and doing clothing which is just as well put together as anything I’ve ever seen from his brand. The “S/S 18 Tee Basic” which I am wearing in “Sand” because I felt like plain white was just something that was too obvious and wanted to deviate from the norm even if just a little bit. The tee fits the Belleza, Signature (Gianni), and SLink mesh male bodies but maybe some of the others could try a demo and see if they can use alpha cuts to make it work for them. It’s really cool as far as basic shirts go and definitely something I personally recommend if you are looking for casual wear.

Before I wrap things up, I wanted to take a quick moment to say that even though I created this blog earlier in the month of March I didn’t put together my first post until the 31st of the month. Today is the true 4 year anniversary of These Conversations Kill and with 473 posts under its belt this site has been one of my best achievements and I wouldn’t change any of what I’ve done with it or on it in these 4 years. I’ve had good times and bad (as all of us have) and I feel that even though I may not be where I’d like to be I am just on the verge of it and my thoughts have changed and progressed and will continue to bring my style from the grid to the grid. Thank you to all of you that have been a part of this journey past, present, and those who are a part of the future. Time for you get to the good stuff and enjoy the first round of Pose Fair for 2018!

Until then, onto the next conversation…

[#459] But I’m At One With The Silence

I found peace in your violence
Can’t show me there’s no point in trying
I’m at one, and I’ve been quiet for too long

β™«Silenceβ™« – Marshmello (Feat. Khalid)

It’s almost Sunday so the start of a new month as well as near the end of another weekend. I’ve been sitting pretty good and coming up with some creative things to help feature some of the great clothing and items that have been coming my way lately. The one great thing is the second half of February’s events are just halfway through and the March events are starting to begin as well.

The soundtrack for this post is a bit more mellow (not mello pun intended) but it’s a song that recently hit my radar that also features the outstanding young new talent, Khalid. Personally some of the words have meaning to me and I can relate to them and know of people personally that can also relate to them. That’s the best part about what I do as a blogger is I try my best to line things up with songs and hope I am able to translate it well from my photos.


Image Essentials is set to release a new pose pack that will make it’s debut at the latest Designers Circle round that begins on March 5th. This set of poses is called 7 Deadly Sins and you guessed it, they are based off the cardinal vices in the teaching of the religion of Christianity. Many different mediums have portrayed these vices but none better then the 1995 film, Se7en with Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman. There is a pose named after each sin (Envy, Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Pride, Sloth and Wrath) and include mirror poses so you are able to capture your best side.

ExalteD has a really awesome urban shirt with a bandana around the neck available at D23 event (ending soon). There are several colors of bandana you can choose from and get two different color shirts (black and white) in both solid and with the words “Punks Not Dead” written on the front and comes in sizes for Belleza and Signature male mesh bodies. I honestly love the detail of the shirt and the bandana, it is something I would definitely wear in the real world in the right weather conditions (hinting for spring to come sooner than later).


Above you’ll see a closer look of the ExalteD shirt on the left side of the pic and on the left side you’ll see a better look at the “Distressed Jeans B.” by HEVO which is currently available at Men Only Monthly for their February/March round. While this brand is relatively new (or at least to me it is) I am finding I like the quality of the jeans and find myself wearing jeans with rips and holes in them. The package includes sizes for Belleza and Signature (Gianni) male mesh bodies.

Even though I’ve previously blogged other versions of these shoes, I couldn’t help but pair these jeans with the FLI. Canvas sneakers (since I had not used the checkered version that made the most sense to me as I have kind of an urban skater look to me along with the hat that I’ll be getting to shortly.) When I say I really love low tops (and I’ve said it plenty) I really do mean it.


While I might not have included it in the credits below, I feel like I’m going to be getting asked about the neon sign that’s in the background of some of the pics and I’ll let you in on where to get it since it was purchased on the Marketplace. It’s bey [REC] and is called Joker Neon v1 and can be purchased HERE if you like it enough to put it in your home/office/club wherever you might fancy.

If there is anything I am big into fashion wise that isn’t low tops, it is hats (or caps in some parts of the world). Personally I have a huge collection of fitted ball caps of various different sporting teams and leagues and while it is harder to find awesome quality items like that here on the grid, I can thank the Ascend brand for making that more of a reality. The “Josh Baseball Cap” is everything I love about hats (the only thing that would have made it better is if it were fitted but then in this case you would get the tuft of hair coming out of the back of it (or if you have it flipped the front). With the option of being able to change the design on the front, it was only natural that I picked up the FATPACK as that is the only way to be able to do that (otherwise it is just one single design). There are a lot of cool different logos but I’ll give you a chance to go check it out for yourself. Plus with the included HUD you can change the front logo as well as the color of the panels on the cap, along with the hair color which you get 10 choices overall.

With another simple but effective look I’ve managed to get another blog post in the books and I often feel that I’m long winded at times so I’ll get you to the part that gets you out shopping. I look forward to bringing you more great things such as items from FaMESHed and also The Arcade which is back for another new round.

Onto the next conversation…

[#406] Something Just Like This

But she said “Where’d you wanna go?”
How much you wanna risk
I’m not looking for somebody with some super human gifts
Some superhero
Some fairy tale bliss
I just want something I can turn to
Somebody I can kiss…

Something Just Like This” – The Chainsmokers & Coldplay β™«Listenβ™«

Thought I’d have a little fun and felt really inspired by the pose that I am featuring in this entry so I decided to do a show a little nerd love and when I was churning my brain for a them it seemed the perfect one came to mind because of the different references through it of comic book characters that I’ve been a fan of since I was a youngster.

Last entry I was wearing the L&B Swear Low Tops and have enjoyed them so much I decided to put them into another look in a different color because they matched my outfit perfectly and being able to do that is a plus when it is sometimes hard finding the right footwear. Most importantly though I am featuring three items from my sponsors Image Essentials, {COLD-ASH} and MESANGE, the latter which are at The Men’s Department and We Love RP respectively.

Even though this is a male fashion blog as per usual I’ve also included the female credits for the adorable girl you see with me. I know that there are some gals that have viewed this site and maybe there are more than I know of but I try to be as consistent as possible. I’m going to leave you with those credits so I can get to working on the next adventure. Be well until our next encounter and stay stylish with a song in your soul.

⊰HAIR⊱ Y-U: JASON “BLK” MENS @ TMD β™― NEW

This hair is certainly unique which is what drew me to it. I think it reminds me of when you see someone get electrocuted in the cartoons and their hair goes every which way. That is what I would describe this hair as being. It’s really cool and unique as I already pointed out. There are several different color packs to choose from or you can get them all together in a FATPACK. It also comes with Classic Hairbases and Omega Hairbase appliers for the full look.

⊰HEAD⊱ CATWA – Daniel (Bento)
⊰EYES⊱ MESANGE – Byzantium Eyes @ We Love RP β™― NEW

Another exclusive from my sponsor MESANGE that’s out right now at the We Love RP event. These eyes are sold separately and there is not a FATPACK available at this time but there are 15 different colors to pick from. Each pack comes with the mesh eyeballs and a HUD to change the size of the pupil as well as OMEGA compatible appliers for those of you who have eyes that can use that styem.

⊰EYEBROWS⊱ [theSkinnery] Hallford Brows @ TMD β™― NEW
⊰FACE⊱ Clef de Peau – Elias T1 @ TMD β™― NEW
⊰BODY⊱ Belleza – Jake

⊰SHIRT⊱ //Ascend// Eric Bow tie Shirt – Print 5

This item is not brand new but it is recent within the last month or so and was a bit part of helping me create that nerd chic look. There are tons of styles for this button up tucked in shirt. It also has a matching bow tie that you can wear. Fitting for this item include Adam, Belleza, Signature, SLink Physique, and TMP mesh bodies.

⊰PANTS⊱ {COLD-ASH} DEAN Chinos (CLASSIC PACK) @ TMD β™― NEW

The latest from my sponsor {COLD-ASH} which has bestowed upon me this review copy. These classic casual slacks are an absolute perfect match for the Ascend shirt. Casual but cool these pants have 8 different colors to choose from and it also includes a belt that can be color changed via HUD as well so you can match accordingly. For those of you with Belleza, Signature, SLink Physique, and TMP mesh bodies, you’ll be able to give these stylish trousers a nice home in your closet.

This is such a fun pose and makes for a really lighthearted scene that I was able to put together. You can consider this pose two ways, it could be used as a couple pose but it also has the feel where you could find a really good friend to pair up with and snap some photos. All in all another fine quality work from my sponsors at Image Essentials.

[#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 Heads β™«Listenβ™«

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 @ FaMESHed β™― NEW

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)
⊰EYES⊱ AG. 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 @ TMD β™― NEW

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.

⊰MOUSTACHE⊱ Kauna – Bento Moustache: Shape A
⊰BODY⊱ Belleza – Jake

⊰JACKET⊱ //Ascend// Marc Jacket – Plain @ FaMESHed β™― NEW

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 Event β™― NEW

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 β™― 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.

⊰RING⊱ [DF] Keyboard Ring β™― Marketplace
⊰RINGS⊱ Ysoral – Luxe Set Rings Luc β™― Marketplace

⊰HOUSE⊱ D’STOPIAN // Burned to Hell β™― 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) β™― 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.

[#395] In A World Of Human Wreckage

When I’m lost and I’m found
and I can’t touch the ground
I’m plowed into the sound…

Plowed” – Sponge β™«Listenβ™«

This is the last weekend of the Indie Teepee event and I hope you’ve been able to get there and enjoy all the sights and sounds as well as shopping that the event has to offer. This is my last post covering the event and I hope that you agree with me that it is going out with a bang. The item I chose to feature here is a fun one, and considering I don’t do decor (or landscaping) items very much I thought it might be one of those times where I snuck one in. While I didn’t create everything you see in the background, that would go to the wonderful sim known as Netherwood. I just provided a little extra touch to complete my idea/theme.

Most of my overall look remains the same from the last few posts but I am featuring a new skin by Modulus which you will be able to find at the Mesh Body Addicts Fair that just recently started.

The next photo you are about to see is an overview shot of the BROKEN BOY giant doll by NOMAD. I submerged it in water as if it was a part of an old civilization from long ago that has simply been left dormant and decaying around what has come after it. I really liked this shot too much to edit it into the secondary features shot so I left it as was originally shot.

I‘d like to thank everyone from the event coordinator down to all the artists, speakers, musicians, and item creators that took part in Indie Teepee. This is truly one of the most unique events out there and I am seriously proud to have been associated with it as a blogger; I look forward to next years event. Here’s the full credits for those of you who are eagerly awaiting to know what took part in this photo shoot. Make sure when you hit these stores and events you grab demos and happy shopping! I’ll see you again soon but until then, stay stylish fellas!

⊰HAIRBASE⊱ Modulus – Jax (Browns)
⊰HEAD⊱ CATWA – Shaheen (Bento)
⊰EYES⊱ MESANGE – Wicked Game Eyes @ M.O.M β™― NEW
⊰FACE⊱ Modulus – Giles Skin – Cream @ Mesh Body Addicts Fair β™― NEW

This handsome devil is just the latest from my sponsor in Modulus. Giles comes in six tones (I am featuring Cream here). Also included is a eyebrow shaper and a body shape (which I did not use for this shoot). This is part of a new era of skins by the brand and if this is any indication, good things are in store for the M-Bare division of Modulus.

⊰CARDIGAN⊱ /Ascend/ Hiroshi Cardigan w/Shirt – Gray

This item was a holdout from the July round of The Men’s Department that I was able to find a look to compliment it with. Even though the weather for me in the real world is a bit warm yet, it’s not something I have to worry about in-world. I like how it is paired with the shirt perfectly and has a good flow to it without looking constricted. Sizes available in the package are for Adam, Belleza, Signature, and SLink and also include a HUD to color change the t-shirt if you choose to go with another color.

⊰SHORTS⊱ RIOT / Emery Denim Shorts @ Mesh Body Addicts Fair β™― NEW

It’s a back to back entry with another new item from one of my sponsors in RIOT. I have the privilege of reviewing these slightly rolled up shorts which have worn elements and threading that is also worn and frayed. In this FATPACK there are a ton of different options for denim and at least a dozen different choices for the threading. You can purchase single denim colors but if you like variety it is very practical to go with the FATPACK. Sizes you can find in the package include Adam, Belleza, Signature, and SLink.

⊰DOLL⊱ NOMAD // BROKEN BOY @ Indie Teepee β™― NEW

NOMAD never disappoints me when they release an item that catches my eye, which is why I chose this item as part of my blogger product reviews for Indie Teepee. I really get the feel that this large doll was inspired somehow by the Fallout games and also reminds me of something personally. Many may be way too young to remember Big Boy restauarants or have ever had them in their area. It was pretty big in the midwest and outside them was a huge doll in a similar style holding a hamburger. At first I tried to find a post apocalyptic location to shoot at but I could not find any that I was able to put this item down at but I do feel that it turned out nicely as it ended up.

Le Poppycock *La Di Da* B (Make Good)

This pose set is one I had stored away from a while back from an event and when I was looking for something I thought would fit, I found it in my unused poses but I am glad that I was able to because I do enjoy Le Poppycock and their poses. Check them out if you are needing poses because there is just about something for everyone.
