“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 ♫Listen♫
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 ♯ 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 ♯ 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 ♯ 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 ♯ 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 ♯ 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 ♯ Marketplace
⊰RINGS⊱ Ysoral – Luxe Set Rings Luc ♯ Marketplace
⊰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.
