[#373] But I Won’t Let This Build Up Inside Of Me

A catch in my throat choke
Torn into pieces
I won’t, no
I don’t wanna be this…

Vermillion Pt. 2 (Bloodstone Mix)” –  Slipknot  ♫Listen

It has finally arrived, the moment many fellas on the grid have been waiting for and now it is here. This past weekend Belleza released their first ever male mesh body: Jake. This omega friendly body could be just the thing everyone needs. With a easy to use HUD and millions of alpha cuts to ensure clothing fits just perfectly, it is hard to go wrong with this body. The package comes with an applier for the Catwa Daniel head to match the included skins tones within the HUD. There is even a spot in the HUD where you can store saved body appliers that you love so you don’t have to dig into your inventory to find it and put it on. While I have not tested tattoos on it yet, I have tried several different skins using the Omega Applier system from Love n Lust. Please note that at the time of writing, the kit for Belleza is located in the women’s section of the Omega store.

This body has a lot to offer and takes things that other bodies have or have lacked and made this possibly one of the best, along with the [SIGNATURE] Gianni model. I can surely see myself switching between these two depending on the types of products that get released. If you have not had the chance, take a stroll to the Belleza store and grab a demo and see for yourself how versatile this product is.

Sometimes I like doing fantasy or horror themed shoots and I think this could easily file under that category. I managed to find quite a few things at the Memento Mori event that is currently taking place until the 27th of May. It is where I found both the “Blood Drink” and “Blood Drainer” to help aid with my vampiric activities. The Drink comes with several ways to display it. As you can see in the photos there is a mouth version, also in the package is a holdable version for both left and right handed people.

Finding eyes to match the overall feel of this look was relatively easy. I received a review copy of the “Undead Eyes” from Go&See that is currently available for a little bit longer at The Dark Style Fair 4. There are 10 different horror centric iris choices to choose from and are compatible with Catwa eyes only. If you play a vampire, zombie, or any type of creature in role-play settings then I urge you to give these a try. There is literally nothing to lose by doing so!

The skin I am wearing is a specialty skin by the brand ^^Swallow^^, it is simply called “Bloody” and comes in just the ivory tone which is one of their palest complected skins that they offer. It has four applier options with two different styles. The regular skin with brows (and one without) as well as a blood splattered version with brows (and without).

I am wearing a recently released product from [BODY FACTORY] which is called “Destruction”. These leather type jeans come in Standard Sizing but I find with the alpha cuts on the Belleza body they fit perfectly without any type of clipping or needing to use what is called “post production magic”. If I would have to describe this product it would be like a cross between leather jeans and cargo pants with some chords to make it different from other items you see out on the market.

Honorable mentions for this look are the “Tommy” hair from Exile and also the “Dylan” pose pack from XXY Poses. I’ve also included the look of my lovely assistant below in the credits as well for those of you gals who might be interested as well.

I’ll be back again soon with another inspired look for you to feast your eyes on but until then as always, keep it stylish fellas and for you gals keep it classy!

[#356] And Way Down We Go

And they will run you down, down to your core
Yeah, ’til you can’t crawl no more

Way Down We Go” –  Kaleo  ♫Listen

Sometimes you just become so inspired that everything falls into place and this particular entry is proof of that. When the “Dae-Na” skin was released at March/April round of Shiny Shabby it peaked my interest. I consider myself a casual fan of Asian culture but I am particularly fond of kantana’s along with codes of honor and loyalty. It also happened that the RE: Japonica event also came at the same time as I was mentally putting this idea together and I finally set the time aside to paint a story.

Normally I don’t get too much into the ideas of what I put together and allow the readers themselves to decide what they think the piece is about based on the song choice for the theme and other visual cue’s. However, this time I’ll elaborate a little more into the thought process of what went into this photo session.

The main character suffered a tragic loss when his village was plundered by an opposing faction, leaving only himself and a small handful of people as survivors. He dedicates his life to becoming a weapon of revenge and when the time is right he seeks out the ones that took the life of his family and their village.

Once he finds them he strategically takes them out one by one until he’s the only one left. Upon returning to the remnants of his village bloodied, bruised, and broken; he realizes that revenge would not bring his family back or make him whole once again. It is this moment that is captured in the photos that you see in this entry.

The kimono that I’m wearing that is available at the RE: Japonica event is from Gabriel, who is a top designer on the grid and one that I like to feature whenever I see something that works for my ideas.

I’m also wearing the [Body Factory] Kombat Katana in the first photo. I removed it for the second as I felt the character would have taken it off as he settled into his kneeling pose.

For hair I have on the “Kai” hair by Tableau Vivant. It’s been in my closet waiting to be used and I finally found that right moment to utilize it. It has the main hair and also an add on part for the bottom which I used as well even though the angles I used did not show that fact.

Also appearing for a second time are the “Nova” eyes from Go&See and previously I had used the blue tone but I thought I would go for the green color for this because it just seemed to fit in my mind.

There are also two items that came from the marketplace for this entry. Izzie’s “Face and Body, Blood and Wounds” fit just perfectly for the broken warrior returning home. I’m sure it is likely available in her main location but I purchased it off the marketplace because it was what was the most suitable in my search. Also for the warrior’s kneel pose I found that at Thrust Poses in their “Kneel Pose Pack” it comes with 6 poses and some of them have mirrors.

Now that you know what went into the finished product, I’ll leave you with the credits so you can grab a taxi and head to these fine events and also take a trip to the marketplace. Until next time, stay stylish fellas!

[#234] I Shall Not Walk Alone

post234_01
When my legs no longer carry
and the warm wind chills my bones
I reach for Mother Maryand I shall not walk alone

I got a little far behind with poses and it’s just a few hours more and then the 2016 version of The Pose Fair will be finished. There were so many great singles and couples poses and I would have liked to have covered more for the event but this blogger got hit with a little bit of a setback. Most of these great items will be finding their way to their respective brands Main Stores so I’ll be able to at least get to them even though they won’t be representing the Pose Fair. I was at least able to get in one selection thankfully.

Tomorrow is also Easter and I hope everyone who celebrates the day with family, friends, or both have an enjoyable day. I’ll catch you on the flip side!
