[#469] And This Is War…

It’s just the two of us
A silver cross
And some strength that you won’t believe
Well I’m not afraid
I’m gonna make you pay
I’m gonna wipe that smile off your face

Our Lady Peace, ♫Wipe That Smile Off Your Face

Having someone to work with, collaborate and to bounce ideas off of is something that I feel is very lacking in the world of blogging. Maybe it’s just me or perhaps my way of going about things that brings about the belief that most bloggers are not interested in working together for fear of competition or plagiarism or whatever goes through ones mind.

Personally I’m not really out to compete with anyone and I know that everyone has their own style, some styles might be similar or some may contrast drastically. We’ve all got our ways and that’s what makes things exciting and unique when you’re browsing Facebook, Twitter, Flickr or whatever social media you might be attached to. There are so many out there and probably will see more to come in the future as technology advances. What might we see in the future? It’s a very good question.

My good friend and at times partner in crime, Lucky Spiritor created a very cool scene that inspired me to complete a visual I had in my head for a long time but never knew exactly how to go about it; that is why for the background of this blog the credit goes completely to him. You can find the blog he did with the scene by clicking HERE.

There are a lot of elements in this post so I’m a bit afraid of getting too wordy in my writing about what you are seeing. Like my friend, I have thought of a series of visuals that connect together and this is the first of them which I am going to call “Battle Scars”. It’s almost normal now for us to read about some type of fighting overseas and that US Soldiers (and also those from other nations) being killed in active duty. First and foremost if there’s anyone who reads this that has served or is currently serving in the Armed Forces, I thank you for doing what you do to defend our liberties and keep us safe from those who might harm us.


Most of the personal things on me are products I have been using lately and can be filed under the “previously blogged” category. The more I start using these on a consistent basis, I may add a page on the site which will state that unless I credit it that I’m going to be wearing them. I am wearing a new pair of eyes which I do have a better view of that you will see as you get deeper into the blog. I’ll tell you more about them after the photo which accompanies them.

Finding good soldier/mercenary gear is difficult to find and there are very few creators in world that handle these things which led me to begin scouring the marketplace. There I found the tactical vest and pants that I am wearing which are very well textured and made and the vest can be resized to help fit just about any mesh body out there.

The gloves I’m wearing are a past group gift from E-Clipse Designs but the store may still have them up with other past gifts. They are bento enabled and have an included HUD that you can change the color from either black or brown with the click of a button.

The wall of guns is from a gacha machine that is the brainchild of both the xin and Toro stores. I believe that it was created as part of a GTA V / Bank Heist type set which included a bunch of different gadgets and items. Though sticking with this wall, I feel there is plenty of firepower for a massive skirmish in whatever war zone this picture is based in (I haven’t decided yet where it would be).


For a soldier what can be more important than a wall of guns? More guns! As you can see there are several different handguns as well as a slick looking sniper rifle (a Call of Duty fans dream I’m sure). On top of that throwing in some tech that helps an operation go as smoothly as possible.

The rifle and hand guns (along with the magazine clip + compensator) belong to the very well crafted and detailed “Sharpshooter” gacha from BAMSE who specialize in making great weapons for gachas. I’m pretty sure that most males that blog these kinds of scenes have items from their machines (as well as anyone that might role-play). The brand doesn’t slouch when it comes to making these interesting pieces and definitely helps add a little more definition to a scene.

The case comes from the same gacha machine as the gun wall from xin + Toro, while the table itself comes from [NikotiN]’s “Dealer Kitchen” set. The grunge type look of the table works well with the gritty scene of the remote location that houses this tactical operation.


Avi-Glam did not just release skins at this years Skin Fair, they also released a min-set of eyes called the “Prestige” eyes and are exclusive to the event until it ends on the 26th of March. There’s still plenty of time to get this set which offers 15 different color irises with the choice to have small, medium, or large sizes. For those of you with CATWA and Omega enabled eyes, there is a HUD for you as well as one for regular mesh eyes that are also included.

I have a good idea where this theme of blog entries is going to go but until the rest of them are done and posted I truly don’t know if they’ll be quite what I have seen in my head. Though it will be definitely worth the effort of trying just to see how far I can allow my mind and creativity go and give a little bit of life and story to them.

This blog had a lot going on for itself with all the different gacha items in the background and it was really cool of Lucky to allow me to use the set he had created for himself to build a visual from my own mind. I’m not the best decorator when it comes down to it and usually prefer something already on a sim or a backdrop. Sometimes I am able to push myself to create a scene that even I am surprised of but it doesn’t happen often.

Now that I’m done getting carried away, I’m going to leave you to what I consider to be one of the most important parts of the blog: the credits. Be sure to click that link to Lucky’s blog as well because he does some great stuff as well.

[#467] Closing Time

Closing time
Time for you to go out to the places you will be from
Closing time
This room won’t be open ’til your brothers or your sisters come

Semisonic, ♫Closing Time

Today 7 out of 10 Americans are likely out celebrating the holiday of St. Patricks Day, now while the day has different meanings to different people it usually gets associated with people drinking to the point of collapse (but not in all cases). Enjoying libations in a responsible way and hanging out with leprechauns sounds like an ideal time.

Several different songs came to mind when I was piecing things together ranging from George Thorogood to Dropkick Murphy’s but my mind steered me towards something different and it happened to be a pretty popular tune in the 90’s so I decided to hitch my wagons to it. Many a karoake machine is probably filled with this song which makes it that much better of a choice. It’s probably certain that you’ve sung it at some point in your life.


This is the third post I’ve done with coverage for Skin Fair, along with featuring the CATWA “Skell” mesh head that is an exclusive to the event I am also wearing an exclusive skin named “Dash” by Go&See. I really like how to two pair together, I think that I kind of have that Irish look about me that I was going for when I started putting the look together; if I wasn’t featuring a new hair I probably would have accessorized with a flatcap for added style.

“Dash” as I said is an exclusive and comes in Goth, Pale, Summer, Tan and Dark Tan with head appliers for both CATWA products and Omega enabled mesh heads as well. This may not have been mentioned in the previous blog I featured the “Danny” skin in but Go&See has also released newer body appliers to go along with these skins and can be purchased at Skin Fair as well as in store. I am also going to make an amendment to what I wrote in about the “Danny” shape in the previous post as well. It is sold separately as is the shape for “Dash” but you will be able to grab them up at the Fair while you are there.

This time I wore my own personal shape but I feel it doesn’t alter the face or skin at all and you can also see what it looks like with my Nivaro “Rugged” beard that seems to be becoming a regular addition to my look.


The Men’s Deparment is about halfway through the March round and I’m showing off this really cool hair named “Matt”. It’s a nice little short side swept hair that you can wear a shaved hairbase to give it a closely cropped look or just wear a normal one to make it look natural and not shaved. This is the first time I’m actually wearing a shade from the “Reds” color pack. Of course you have the option to purchase the 5 color packs (Blonds, Browns, Monochromes, Reds and Vibrants) or get all of them together in a FATPACK which saves you some dough. I’ve talked about the color HUDs have a color picker so that you can actually change your hair to a shade that isn’t in any of the packs which really gives you more than 25 options. Lots of choice and a great quality product as I’ve come to experience from Modulus.

Spring has not yet set in yet in most places so I thought it would work out well for me to use the “Chesterfield Coat” by ::K:: to keep my avatar comfortable as he heads out the door as the bar starts closing up. I really like longer coats and the add-on scarf is a great touch which you can change the color/pattern of with it’s included HUD. It fits great and and it’s one of those things that I never have to worry about when I see something that’s been made by Kitt Ragu. The Chesterfield Coat fits anyone with a Belleza, Signature (Gianni) or SLink mesh body. Take a cab from the credits below to give it a closer look!

What is a St. Patrick’s Day photo without a bar setting? This super backdrop is from Paparazzi, who I have featured on more than one occasion and for a very good reason. The quality of the work in the mesh and textures help any photographer/blogger get the results they are looking for and it’s not going to zap their wallets (or purses for the gals).

A week ago for Fifty Linden Friday I went to Commoner and picked up this “Pint of Pilsner” which comes in the green version I’m using and also an amber version. I purchased them both knowing that at some point I’d be able to use them for something and it must have been foresight that I picked up the green one because it occurred to me while I was setting up that I had this and made sure I included it into the shot.

I also have to give a shout out to WRONG & The Owl for another cool pose collaboration. I remember the #10 pose set being at Men Only Monthly for the Dec/Jan round and wasn’t sure what I might need it for but the ad for it depicts a wine flute but alcohol is alcohol so I switched it out for some beer without any issues.

That just about wraps up another blog entry for me but keep your eyes peeled for my final coverage of Skin Fair and some of the other events that are starting up or have started up recently (Kustom9 and Men Only Monthly among others). Have a safe evening and rest of the week and and maybe I’ll see you out and about!

[#466] Highway To The Danger Zone

They never say “Hello” to you
Until you get it on the red-line overload
You’ll never know what you can do
Until you get it up as high as you can go

Kenny Loggins, ♫Danger Zone

Taking a step into a little bit of uncharted territory here with this blog entry. Not only am I trying different ways of lighting and post processing but also throwing a bit of decor in (even though it it not my strong point at all). I also decided to choose a soundtrack to this that fits maybe not in a traditional sense but more metaphorical.

Coming soon to the Illuminate event is the “Rogue Flare Ejection Seat” which is definitely not your average piece of furniture. This chair is rather unique with one of the features that gives it its name. 10 different sit animations and one very special one which literally ejects you into the air. As hard as it would be to capture an actual ejection from the chair, I simulated that part in my up close secondary shot for the sake of humor.

When this chair gets released you definitely need to check it out for yourself because it’s just too much fun.


Decorating as I said in my opening, is not something I’m very good at. Coming up with things and combining them to adding clutter as I’ve been told helps sometimes is just not where my expertise is. On thing I do know is that when I see something I like then I purchase it with the intention of using it either in my own home or as part of a set to help a blog scene along.

Llorisen has been around the grid for a while but I’ve only recently started snapping up some of their work and continue to look for other things as well. The wall frame is inspired by the comics and personally reminds me of Batman ’66 during the fight scenes. I first came across it as a Fifty Linden Friday item and couldn’t resist it and I was in awe of the quality. The build that is also a part of the scene is also from the store and is called the “Keating” skybox. This apartment style loft is just super amazing and I fully intend to do future scenes from it so I made sure I picked a spot that was away from an area I wanted to feature in the future. Both of these items are currently at their main location so check them out at the soonest convenience.


The Men’s Department has a lot of great items this month and probably more than I’ll be able to purchase or cover but you never know what will inspire me and pop up into a photo. For the second straight blog I’m wearing the BURLESON bracelet from {Cold-Ash}. I felt that the last picture didn’t give as good of a look as I wanted (with the tone of the photo being darker with the lighting). As far as bracelets go it is one of most well designed and crafted pieces of jewelry/accessories I’ve worn in a while.

Also from the event are the “BOJAN Sneakers” from Not so Bad. These low top shoes come in three different colors but if you pick up the FATPACK you get a HUD to give them even more customization. Being able to change the color of the sole, laces, side stripe, tongue, and back patch is definitely a nice added touch to be able to do. Gives the shoes a bit more life than just a few wears because you can style them to fit your look/theme. The sneakers come in sizes for Belleza, Signature (Gianna), TMP and classic avatars with a resize HUD also included.

Uber is the destination to hit if you’re looking for some newness from [Deadwool], who released their “Tweed Trousers” at the monthly event. Most of the colors border darker fabrics (grays and blacks etc) and there is even a bonus for purchasers of the FATPACK and I decided to really treat myself to getting one since it’s been a while (plus it helped that I had some stored up credit from the holidays woooo!) The pants come sized for those with Belleza, Signature (Gianni) and SLink male bodies.

As I wrap this up I think that the inspiration and humor that I put into this scene really did a world of good. I mean it’s not everyday that someone gets hurled up into the air on purpose (or is it accident I’m not sure to be honest?) It also felt good that I created an image that didn’t have tons of dark lighting/mood and had sunlight in it. I’m definitely liking that I can do more than just that it’s just encouraging myself to vary from what is safe for me. I’ll also be posting a different type of photo for this shoot on Flickr (a composite of the two images) to be able to show every bit of what I did. More from the Skin Fair is to come as there are just about 10 days left of the event. Time for me to hit the road…

[#428] Whatever It Takes

I do whatever it takes to make it
Break through anything I’m face to face with
It’s true, you gonna make me lose my patience
‘Cause victory is mine and I’mma take it

Whatever It Takes♫ – Hollywood Undead

This blog entry has been over a year in the making and I’m so glad it finally happened. Once again I’ve paired up with the super talented fellow swag master, Nile from the Double Trouble blog to bring you a super awesome collaboration. We have both been wanting to work together again since our first initial collaboration for Halloween last year. Schedules as you know don’t always permit but we finally were able to pin a day down to knock this out and man did we ever.


When I first saw the shopping guide for the Men Only Monthly event I knew that I just HAD to do something with the Heist gacha from BlankLine. When I came up with the idea for what Nile and I were going to do it was just natural that we put together a scene using some of the items from it. We both took different looks for our type of bank robber with Nile taking a more urban approach and me going with a more classical old school bank robber. Both of us gear up with BPV’s (Bullet Proof Vests) to keep us safe in case we encountered any trouble from the 5-0.


Products that I’m featuring in this post mostly comprise of items from the BlankLine gacha which is currently up for sale at Men Only Monthly; so if you yourself have an idea for a gangster or bank heist type composition that’s a good place to start with.

I’m also once again featuring the “Hope Eyes” from Avi-Glam (a brand partner) for this look because I am really enamored with the eyes in this set and their detail is fantastic. There is not one color out of this set that I wouldn’t wear for a shoot if it was what called for it.


As I wrap up another entry I look back at the process of this collaboration and I could be more happy or excited with how it turned out; I also look forward to future collaborations with Nile as well as anyone else who’d like to do team-up in the upcoming year. 2018 will be one of more collaborations and working with people who I admire as well as want to work with to try new things.

For more information on Nile and his blog, Double Trouble, just click on the blog name which is linked and there you’ll get to see his other works as well as work from his co-author, Macie, you’ll also be able to see his version of this shoot as well as his style credits!

That’s all I’ve got for this adventure be sure to check back again for the road ahead and it’s been an honor and a pleasure.

Onto the next conversation…

HAIRStealthic – Psycho

This was one of my Black Friday sale goodies as I really liked this hair and knew that I could find something good to use it with. When this scene idea came into my head I knew it was the prefect hair for me to use. I originally was going to pair it with one of the face wraps in the BlankLine gacha but I opted to leave my face uncovered as it was post robbery. This hair has 6 different color HUDs to choose from as well as a HUD for changing the color of the beanie. What’s even cooler about this is there is a styling HUD to change the appearance of the hair in different positions and styles.

HEADLeLutka – Andrea v 3.1

EYES⊱ AG. Hope Eyes – Fern @ Shiny ShabbyNEW

For a second straight post (if you check back at my last entry you’ll get more info on this product) I’m wearing these eyes but went with the Fern color as it matched the scene considering all the money that is around the two bank robbers.

FACEStray Dog – Cody T2

BODYBelleza – Jake

OUTFIT⊱ BlankLine – Gang Bullet Proof Vest Suits (02) RARE @ M.O.MNEW

It wasn’t an easy task much as robbing a bank would be I imagine to pull this item from the machine being that it is a RARE. Though I persevered so that I could use it for this look as it was an integral part of the scene that I was setting up. As with my usual blogs I post what bodies my clothes and accessories work with but this suit does not specify, however, I believe that it would work with just about any male body with alphas clicked off. I’m wearing the Belleza body and it looks good without any problems.

SHOES[MODA] BLAKE OXFORDS

GLOVES⊱ BlankLine – Gang Glove @ M.O.MNEW

Another part of BlankLine’s “Heist” gacha, these gloves are bento enabled and I alpha’d out my hands and this worked great with my body in combination with the suit and the pose. These are definitely something that would be fun to mess around with on other projects so it is something that could be used again and has a high re-use value. Worth a pull of the gacha or if you know someone that will trade or give you a copy it’s well worth it.

WRONG & The Owl. Human Race @ M.O.MNEW

I managed to find 3/4 of all that was used in this scene at Men Only Monthly, including this pose. What was really nice about this pose as that it needed no adjusting other than a minor tweak of my body shape which wasn’t even that big of a deal. I thought this really captured the tone of the two robbers settling in after heist and celebrating their victory in front of their spoils. This is also a great pose you can use with a really good friend or even a family member for a photo.

[#427] Swing Life Away

I’ve been here so long, I think that it’s time to move
The winter’s so cold, summer’s over too soon
Let’s pack our bags and settle down where palm trees grow

Swing Life Away♫ – Rise Against

It’s not very often that I actually shoot any scenes from my own house but I didn’t really feel like using a backdrop or finding a location to set up in so I came up with an idea that allowed me to stay where I was at. I enjoyed how I was able to combine good ambience with lighting and of course my instant go to LUMIPro. Personally I feel like this is a small victory because it was fun to come up with and it was not stressful to put together.


When I first started putting this together, I didn’t have a song that was an inspiration as often times I do before going into setting up a scene. As I was thinking about various genre’s of music I knew I wanted something laid back; I almost automatically recalled “Swing Life Away”. It had the right feel and helped me with getting the best visual with the look and poses I combined.


As I was taking photos from different angles from close and further away, I found myself liking a majority of them so for this entry I added an extra shot I found favorable in addition to my main “storytelling” shot and the usual two featured product close-ups.


Brand partners that I am featuring in this entry’s look consist of Avi-Glam (eyes) and Image Essentials (Poses). I managed to go out and do a little shopping outside of the search for bargains during the Black Friday events and checked out a new event called District 23 (not to be confused with the District 20 event that I have intentions of covering) as well as another stop to The Men’s Department.


Now that you’ve had the chance to look at what I’ve put into this look, I’ll leave you with the style credits (which are as complete as they possibly can). I believe these stores and events have something for just about every fella out there and even some of the gals as well. Enjoy your next shopping excursion and remember to pick up demos before deciding on a purchase as there is nothing worse then buyer’s remorse (and I know we’ve all been there). Thanks for joining me for this adventure and I will see you again soon.

Onto the next conversation…

HAIR+elua+ Pippa Black Pack

During the course of my Black Friday shopping excursion I decided to see what +elua+ had going on as far as hairstyles considering I have not visited the shop in some time. I did not find anything in the regular hairstyles but I did see the gacha machine that this hair is from and played it to be able to get a black pack of this hair and with a little size adjusting it was perfect on my head. Personally I like having longer hair on my pixels during what I would consider the fall/winter season even though some places don’t really observe because it is unnecessary (we are pixels after all ha!)

HEADLeLutka – Andrea v 3.1

EYES⊱ AG. Hope Eyes – Aqua @ Shiny ShabbyNEW

Eyes are often the best feature on a person because when you look into someone’s eyes it has been said that you can look into their soul; this new set of eyes like previous Avi-Glam releases does not disappoint. 24 different iris colors (including the one you can see a close-up of in the product shot above) that come in 3 sizes. These are excellent for everyday wear and for those of you who may not be bloggers or photographers could easily be a great permanent eye to wear. Mesh eyes are included in the package and a FATPACK is also available.

COMPATIBLE With: CATWA, OMEGA, and regular (for included mesh eyes) applier HUDs.

FACEStray Dog – Cody T2
BODYBelleza – Jake

TATTOO⊱ { Speakeasy } Storm Tattoo @ District 23NEW

Very seldom do I wear or feature body ink as I’ve expressed before in previous entries but it’s not for lack of liking them. Most of the time it’s for the fact I wear products that would generally cover them up and would defeat the purpose of wearing them. When I was putting this current look together I saw an add for this tattoo and knew that I would not be wearing anything on the upper half of my body. The tattoo comes in three different opacity types (Fresh, Worn, and Faded) and you can get it at District 23 along with other types of ink and poses to enjoy.

COMPATIBLE With: Omega, Signature and TMP applier HUDs.

PANTS⊱ AITUI – Sweat Pants – Loyalty, Grey @ TMDNEW

Only a few more days left for the current round of TMD to get your hands on these sweatpants by AITUI. There are several different designs and colors available at the event but they are definitely great for just lazing around your dwelling while you are AFK or just relaxing doing nothing. I think these are really cool and very well made.

COMPATIBLE With: Belleza, Signature, SLink and TMP male bodies.

IE – Daily Things (b) (1 / 3) @ Designer CircleNEW

I really do enjoy taking poses that are not meant normally for males and putting them to work for me. This great set of poses (5 total with mirrors) also comes with two pose props (a phone and a magazine). The poses depict motions some of us make in our normal routines which is why to me the name of the set is appropriate. You can pick this up at the Designer Circle event which is open until the 2nd of December so there is still time…hurry!

[#423] Here Without You

I’m here without you baby
But you’re still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby
And I dream about you all the time

Here Without You♫ – 3 Doors Down

Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of people posting photos from an in-world location called IASWAS. I figured it was time for me to go visit and see if it inspired me for a scene and the results of it are what you are about to see here. I didn’t expect to get immersed in fall/winter scenery this early but with most land locations changing their seasonal looks, it’ll be a more and more of a task for me to avoid it unless I find inspiration indoors.

When going through the settings as I was doing the photography for this blog entry I had a tough time trying to decide on a windlight that would work well with my surrounds. Rarely if ever do I use the one specified by the sim itself just out of habit, not like they are bad or anything like that. I just tend to stray away from that kind of thing. I ended up choosing a wintery one because of having the snow drifted mountains in the background.

Winter can bring about feelings that we may normally not have in warmer months. Sometimes people feel lonelier when the temperature drops and the the holidays bring about certain things in people as well. I think that’s a big part of the reason why I went with the song choice I did because I think we all miss someone this time of year, even people who are right there in front of us. Don’t ask me to explain it as I believe it is simply something bigger than myself.

Now that you seen different angles and closer looks of what I’m wearing you can take a little trip to the different stores and events I’ve gone to and put this look together. Also do not forget to take a trip to IASWAS because it is really a nicely put together place to explore and even take photographs. I’ll certainly be stopping by there again to seek out another location to create another scene. This was a fun adventure and I look forward to seeing you for the next one.

HAIR⊱ -FABIA- <Rich> @ Hipster Men’s EventNEW
For a second look in a row I brought this beanie back to show you one of the other looks that you could get with this product. This is the longer hair version but there is also a shorter hair than this as well as the non hair version you saw in my last entry. I really like the options FABIA made available with this release. Great for winter or for those who wear beanies all the time.

HEADCATWA – Daniel
EYESAG. Lucent Eyes

FACE⊱ Modulus – Jonah Skin (Catwa) @ Hipster Men’s EventNEW
Hipster Men’s Event has a lot of variety as far as events go and as a part of my partnership with Modulus, I’m featuring this skin which is available in five tones with appliers for CATWA and LeLutka brand heads. With the last Modulus release I used the LeLutka head so I figured this time I’d give CATWA Daniel some love for a change. The applier itself has an option for hair and brows singly or together as well as an option to have neither of them for a clean and hairless canvas to apply your own favorite brows, hair, and beards to.

BODYBelleza – Jake

COATLenox Adept Coat
In previous looks I wore the Wool sweater which this coat is tailored to work with. They were originally a part of a past round of TMD (October if I remember correctly). I have a preference to longer coats (mid-length like this to trench coats) and the craftsmanship of this item is very well done. I couldn’t help but purchase the FATPACK when I bought it because I knew I’d really enjoy wearing this in other colors.

COMPATIBLE With: Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature and TMP male bodies.

SWEATERLenox Wool Sweater

JEANS[Deadwool] Broberry Jeans – Washed Lapis
Yet another FATPACK I couldn’t resist at the time, I’ve only worn perhaps two of the pairs of jeans in this set. It felt like the right choice to go with a brand that I’ve enjoyed since their inception. There are still more denim colors left for me to use so who knows when you’ll see these great jeans pop up again.

BOOTS⊱ {kokoia} Gangsta @ TMDNEW
You may know about my addiction for low-top sneakers but it seems like I very well may have an addiction for most shoes in general. I am picky when I need to be but it something looks good and I know it will look good on me then I won’t hesitate to make sure that I own it. These low boot styled shoes are well detailed and are very stylish. There are 5 different colors to choose from (both in base and laces) via a color changing HUD. I would recommend these for not only casual wear with jeans but they could also work in dressier situations.
