[#385] It’s A Sign Of The Times

We never learn, we’ve been here before
Why are we always stuck and running from
The bullets, the bullets?

Sign Of The Times” –  Harry Styles  ♫Listen

After a successful shopping excursion to Shiny Shabby and The Men’s Department, I pulled some other items from my closet to put together a look to go with the one of the items from Modulus’ blogger pack from Hair Fair 2017. If you haven’t been to the fair yet and are able to easily get in, you’ll find there are a modest amount of male hair styles but not nearly the same amount as the gals. With that said, you’ll still find something to bring home with you in your shopping bag to wow those around you and without any further interruption here’s the credits for this entry.


HAIR⊱ Modulus – Brendan Hair ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Hair Fair ’17
HAIRBASE⊱ Modulus – Jai Hair Base ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Hair Fair ’17

As I previously mentioned, these items came as a part of a blogger pack straight from Modulus. Though to be honest even if I wasn’t a blogger and saw this at Hair Fair, I would have bought it for the simple fact it is a hairstyle I like and have worn before by other designers. It fits Catwa heads pretty well so that is a plus but I haven’t tried it on anything else. Good news is that it is re-sizeable so for those of you that do not have or are currently using a Catwa brand mesh head it should still fit for you.

HEADCATWA – Shaheen (Bento) ♯ ☆NEW

Catwa Clip is at it again! After the release of the “Stanley” mesh head last month at the ULTRA event, she’s bolstered her male bento head collection with a new face. “Shaheen” is a little more subtle with his features compared to the previous release and fits somewhere in the middle between it and the first release, “Daniel”. I like that it isn’t as rugged but still has great masculine appeal for those who are not high on rock hard jawlines. You can get this at the CATWA main location right now!

FACE⊱ STRAY DOG – LEWIS – TONE 02 ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ TMD

Having a new mesh head made me think that I should make my next entry with a new skin to go along with it and I did not have to wait long. The newest round of The Men’s Department features several new skins but this go round I decided to start out with one of my new favorites and the latest release by Stray Dog. “Lewis” is definitely one of those charming fellas that has an intelligent yet sexy look to him. As with most releases from Stray Dog, it is a Catwa applier and is packaged with a shape and brow base but you can always use an alternative of your choice.

BODY[SIGNATURE] Gianni – Body – v3.5

SWEATERBlankLine – Long-Sleeved SweatShirts

This item is one that I had originally purchased at one of the rounds of the Signature Event but did not get to during it’s initial run but I do like to try to give things that are still relatively recent an opportunity to fit a look that I’m putting together and the opportunity came for this sweater. It’s one of those that you could wear on a cool day or evening at the beach and wouldn’t just limit you to wearing it in the winter time. I like how the left arm is pushed just up to the forearm while on the right side it hangs a bit baggy at the wrists. I am wearing this for the Signature body but the package also includes sizes for Classic Avatars (Fitmesh) and also TMP mesh bodies.

JEANSnot so bad . KEANU Jeans – Dirty

Another item that managed to slip into my closet and get lost when it was released at TMD in a previous round. I like that these aren’t your typical rolled up cuff jeans or skinny jeans. They have a little bit of bagginess without looking like you’ve filled your pants as it were and they come down to about the calf in length which gives you the option to wear low or hi-tops or even boots that are ankle length. They’ve got standard sizes for classic avi’s and sizes for Belleza Jake, SLink Physique, as well as Signature Gianni (which is what I am wearing) and TMP.

SHOES⊱ -NOeditiON- Lace Pumps (White) ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Shiny Shabby

Finally there is an item from NOeditiON that I know will work well for mesh bodies because there are several fits for this classic low-top sneaker. Several colors to choose from (unless you pick up the FATPACK as I did) with a light mesh side panel which has a little bit of transparency. It does also have a version for the gals which has a bit of a floral pattern in the side panel. I really like this shoe and with it actually having sizes for Signature Gianni and SLink Physique for the guys as well as Maitreya and SLink for the gals.

IE – Mellow v2 (9) ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Square 1

Square 1 is one of those events that is newer on the scene and I’m still getting acquainted with it but I did receive a blogger pack from Image Essentials containing the “Mellow” V1 and V2 pose sets. Each set has 10 poses included (5 regular and 5 mirrored). They are great for any kind of scene where whoever is posing is in a seated position. These poses are bento so depending on the size of your avatar frame you may need to do some adjusting to ensure that it looks the way it is supposed to.

I hope you enjoyed this post which in a way is basically a post 4th of July setting with my outfit consisting of red, white, and blue items. I will be back again soon with more items from Hair Fair 2017 and a look at a few things from the Summerfest ’17 event. I encourage you to take a trip to the stores an events featured in this post and also to grab demos so that you are not left with buyer’s regret as it sometimes happens to the best of us. Be well until we return with a new look and as always, stay stylish fellas!

[#360] They Said It Gets Easier But They Lied

Really, I’m so thankful for the people I meet,
the places I’ve seen but when she’s not here
It doesn’t feel like I’m living my dream

Miles Away” –  Memphis May Fire (feat. Kellin Quinn)  ♫Listen

After taking a small break for myself, I am back with a bunch of new things that I am truly excited about and to share with you. From this look you’ll find items from the recently open Spring round of The Season’s Story, more goods from The Men’s Department and also a look at one of my favorite items from Shoetopia.

Let’s start with the “Jake” skin from Modulus that is out now at The Seasons Story. I really like this skin as it really coincides with what I look for in a look for my avi. It comes with the options you’ve come to know from Modulus’ “M BARE” line of skins. Shapes for the brows and body are also included. The product is worth going to check out and I’m utilizing the cream tone but if you are looking for something else they have other tones that might suit you better.

Many people including myself love the [Deadwool] brand and that truly may be an understatement. I’ve been a follower of this brand since their very beginnings and they seem to continue to produce products that are truly amazing and well crafted. Their most recent release at the Shoetopia event is no exception. “Chase” is a low top style sneaker that comes in various colors but if you get the full pack you get extra bits in the HUD that comes with it. There are also built in socks which you can change as well, or remove them and go without. I’m a sucker for shoes like this and I know that these will definitely get plenty of use even if they don’t appear here on this site.

I’m also wearing the {Cold-Ash} “Tyler” tank top from The Men’s Department that uses the classic color HUD. I really love how this fits, which I am wearing it for the Gianni body. It goes great with the BlankLine “CargoPants” that were from the past version of the SIGNATURE event. “Tyler” has an option for a thinner waist if you choose to make it more fitting to your body. I like things to be a little looser so I went with the wider waisted version.

The second release of three to come from MESANGE at the We Love RP event is called the “Taomina Eyes”. These eyes are stunning as are all releases you can find from the brand. 15 different colors to choose from with a HUD that includes Omega enabled appliers. These eyes are not just for role-play enthusiasts. They can be used for everyday which is another thing I like about the majority of the releases MESANGE put out.

The bag you see me holding is the {Q-Essentials} Messenger Bag; while there is no set release date for this item, I was granted the privilege of being able to showcase it here for you guys. When it is released, I will inform you in a future entry as I link back to this post so that you can grab it when the time comes. I really like this bag and it’s made well and there will be more colors to choose from when it has a proper release.

I have to give a special mention to [Bad Unicorn] for their excellent backdrops. For this entry I went back from one of their earlier releases the “Hype-Beast” set and am using the RARE from this gacha machine. It fit the idea I had in my head so I’m very glad that I was able to make use of this.

Also be sure to check out Exile, they have a new build at their main location as well as a gift for both the gals and the fellas. They have new hair textures for their products so I think that is well worth checking it out.

Now that you are better informed about what you see in this entry, I leave you with the transportation to get to these stores and events so you can see everything they have to offer. I’ll catch you again soon but until then, stay stylish fellas!
