So let the frenzy begin! It’s March 10th and you know what that means? That’s right…it’s time for Skin Fair. I’ve got plenty of coverage coming from this event and I’m excited to share with you.

Let’s start with Avi-Glam’s latest skin called “Kai”, it comes in 8 different tones (Ivory, Fair, Light, Honey, Latte, Tan, Dark, and Cocoa) with appliers for both [SIGNATURE] Gianni and TMP mesh body types. For the face it is only for CATWA mesh and bento heads.

I paired it with a recent release from Reach shapes. This specific shape is called “Asher” and you can get it at their main location as well as on their marketplace. I’m fast becoming a fan of this brand’s work and I’ve learned that you don’t have to follow their included style-cards to make yourself look great. I’ll be showing you their Skin Fair products in upcoming entries so keep an eye out for those.

I have a couple of items here from one of my fave clothiers on the grid, {COLD-ASH} that I am going to share with you. You might remember that I featured the RILEY straight leg jeans from the Signature Event a few posts back. Well now I am showing their boot cut version that is available also at the event until the 13th. It comes with the same denim color hud and also choices for changing the color of the belt or simply not having one at all. I might have mentioned that you also get three leg lengths: Low, Mid, and High depending on what type of boots you want to pair them up with.

At the current round of The Men’s Department, {COLD-ASH} has released the “MONTANA” shirt. It comes in two different color styles (Light and Classic) I would definitely recommend this item if you’re looking for a nice fitting shirt that you’d want to wear just about any day of the week. Not only does it have the plain color choices but it also has those colors with designated designs on them. It comes in the [SIGNATURE] Gianni size as well as Classic, SLink Physique, and TMP with a loose waist and slim waist option. You can’t afford not to pick this tee up, it definitely rocks.

Versus is back again with new items and new teams battling it out to see which brands are superior. I encourage you and anyone you know to check out this event as they have something for everyone and it’s fun to take part in the voting process and while I was there picked up some awesome new shoes to go with my look.

X.co has released the X-3 Yj sneakers which I have chosen the Black with White variation but there are a total of 6 different color styles to choose from. These are the kind of sneakers you could wear to just about any casual setting or even getting together with the fellas for a game of hoops. Sizes for this include [SIGNATURE] Gianni, SLink Physique, Standard, and TMP body styles.

Lastly I’d love to give mention to Chat Noir, I’m finding that their single mens Bento poses are really nicely done. I’ve used two different ones for this photo session which were once in events but have migrated to their main location for you to take a look at.

Now that you know just about all there is about this look, I am going to leave you to go shopping at any or all of the locations below in the credits. Enjoy your trip and I will be back again soon with another transmission for your viewing pleasure. Until then…stay stylish fellas!

I hope everyone’s doing well since the last entry. Things here are going the same which is always good, right? For this look I’ve got some new items from n21, Men Only Monthly, and the Signature Event that should wet your appetite. Let’s get into it right away, shall we?

lock&tuft has a new hair/hat combination you can purchase at the February/March round of n21 that just started back on the 20th. It’s called “ashton”. You can purchase various color packs or get the full pack with all of them. There are 3 different packs to choose from and all of them (full pack included) comes with a HUD for the hat, which has 9 different colors to choose from. It’s definitely not just a winter type hat, it has plenty of year round use so you don’t have to put it away soon when all of that cool weather moves out.

At the Signature Event you can pick up a pair of the new “Riley” jeans from {COLD-ASH}. These jeans come in six different denim colors and have a HUD for changing the belt color or hiding it altogether. The version I am wearing in this entry are the straight leg variety. You can also purchase the boot cut version in the same denim colors or as full packs. If you love wearing jeans then why not go for the gold and get them all! One more thing about the boot cut version, you get a choice of having the cut be high, mid, or low depending on the type of boot you want to wear. Sizes included for these jeans are: Classic, [SIGNATURE] Gianni, SLink Physique, and TMP for those of you with those mesh style bodies.

At Men Only Monthly, 7mad;Ravens has a new shirt for purchase. You can get the “Rags” shirt in five different styles and two different version of that style. It also has 3 different sizes for your avatar so you should be able to find just the right fit for your desired body choice but just in case try the demo if you are unsure; the best way you could go!

Lastly at the Modulus store you can pick up the Esteban skin which comes with both a brow base as well as a body shaper to make it look its very best; it comes in Bronze, Nude, Olive, and Tan. As with just about all of the skins made by Modulus, this has an option for just the face without brows while using your own. You can use the ones built in as an option and can also have facial hair by itself or all in one for a full look. Choose which one is best for you but there is truly no wrong way. For those of you who own a [SIGNATURE] Gianni Mesh Head, there is also a version of this skin as well at the Signature Event!

Now that you have all this information it’s time to leave you transportation to get to the stores and events currently featured in this post. As always…until next time, stay stylish fellas.

Towards the end of my last post, I had mentioned that Vista Animations were set to release their Bento PROHANDS for the [SIGNATURE] Gianni body. I’m happy to report that sometime shortly after publishing it, the hands are indeed out and available for purchase. What’s even better is that for those who already had the SLink version you could buy them for a reduced price of half the cost as an “UPGRADE” option. It has the same features and animations as the SLink Physique version and I recommend either product for those of you who want more functionality with your virtual digits.

This time out I combined a little old with the new that I’ve acquired and mixed it all together to make a casual look. I’m excited about some of these items so I’m going to get right into it.

The Men’s Dept. is back once more and I’m wearing the new “WADE” jacket from {COLD-ASH}. It’s a nice open leather jacket that has an optional shirt that you can turn on or off as well as colorize it if you want to; the package includes the aforementioned HUD along with Classic Fitmesh, Gianni, SLink Physiqe and TMP sizes as well as a non-materials version you can unpack if you would rather wear it that way.

Last time I had on the Go&See “Kevin” skin that you can pick up at The Crossroads event. I have another new skin from the event by one of my favorite skin designers, Modulus. You may be wondering why they might be a favorite since they’ve only started selling skins. It’s fairly easy, before establishing the Modulus brand, Chucky Hollak, was the creator behind Fruk skins. I was very excited upon learning he was returning back to his roots which I may have mentioned in a previous entry as well. With a great attention to detail, Modulus is most certainly a hard working brand. There have already been modifications as Chucky is a perfectionist and as a consumer, I can’t help but admire that he wants to make sure that everyone gets the best.

The “Oskar” skin comes in the usual shades that are synonymous with the brand (Cream, Nude, Beige, Olive, Bronze, and Tan). I have also learned that at the their flagship store, they have released the appliers that are compatible with the Bento PROHANDS. What also differentiates this release from the “Milo” skin that was previously released is besides the eyebrow/no eyebrow option, you also get a beard option and a combination of all three as well. Also included is a shape to make you look your best while wearing it.

Making their returns to complete out this look are the RIOT “Lennon Long Line Jeans” which have a great fit for the Gianni body that I am wearing and also the fame femme “Kori” sneakers that were available last year at The Men’s Department. Considering that I bought the full pack of these shoes I’m bound to find other great colors to use with jeans such as these. It’s the perfect look for a night out with the fellas or even a date night to make a good visual impression. Also still available from Men Only Monthly for a few more days are the “Ardor” eyes from Avi-Glam. The blue iris tone is pretty close to my own real eyes so I wanted to go with them one more time.

Now that I’ve taken up a little of your time and given you some excellent information, I’m going to make my way back to hotwire that old school car and go for a joy ride (just kidding!) Best shopping to all and until the next as always, stay stylish fellas! Here’s the taxi’s just waiting to take you to great shopping.

After shopping trips to The Men’s Dept, Men Only Monthly, the SIGNATURE Event, and the newly opened Lost & Found, I have got a very cool and casual look to share with you this time around.

A few items have returned from last time like the Go&See “Jayden” skin that you can get right now at Men Only Monthly. I just really like how it looks with the Catwa “Daniel” Bento head. Sometimes with appearance you can’t help but to go back to your faves. Sometimes I do change things up just to provide a variety with my looks but when you feel comfortable you tend to use it more frequently.

My other Men Only Monthly item are the “Ripped Jeans” by INVICTUS. They come fitted for Nyramith Aesthetic, [SIGNATURE] Gianni, SLink Physique, Standard Fitted, and TMP body types. Wearing them with my Gianni body was pretty effortless but you still have to tick most of your leg alphas in the HUD but nothing complicated to deal with. They also come in several choices from your light denims to your darker and black so depending on your style or mood, you can find the right one.

{COLD-ASH} has a new product available at the SIGNATURE Event. That’s right, you can get the CONNOR long sleeved Polo shirt which is available right now. I really like the style of this shirt, it’s very casual and would be very comfortable to wear to just about any social gathering. There are 8 colors to choose from but I tend to have a hard time with making a choice so I am glad that I have the entire classic pack. Besides the Gianni fitted shirt, you also get fits for standard, SLink Physique, and TMP bodies. The best thing about this shirt is that you also have the option for a slim waist or a wider waist (for those of you who like baggier shirts as I do).

Tableau Vivant is at The Men’s Dept with the Oliver hair. It’s a very nice mid-length hair in which there are three different color packs or the option to buy all of them for a discounted price. I chose to go with the Naturals II set and add a bit of salt and pepper to give a little more mature look.

Now onto the newest round of Lost & Found, which opened for their January/February round on the 22nd. MESANGE is offering the “Melancholy Eyes” which have a total of 15 color iris’ and come with the standard mesh eyes. The HUD allows you to change the size of the pupils and also has options for OMEGA and Genesis Lab appliers. I really that there are options for the size of the pupils because not everyone likes to have huge eyes. It is becoming more and more of a standard option recently and I am certainly grateful that MESANGE has picked it up.

It’s time for you all to get your shopping on and pick up these great items or any of the other great products at these events. Maybe I’ll see you out there. Until the next time we meet up here for more fashion, stay stylish fellas! Now onto the credits!!!

Bento is slowly taking over the grid and not just for the ladies. Yes, us gentlemen are getting the same treatment with some products that are slowly rolling in this past week and in the time to come. I’m still trying to get used to it and figure out the best way to use it to maximize it’s benefit with the latest tech coming onto the grid.

In this latest post, I am showcasing the new “Damon” head from [GA.EG] paired with the Essences Ian Skin that’s been one of go to skins in the last little while. I didn’t really use the sliders to edit the head much until I get a little more adjusted but there’s plenty of possibilities now that you can adjust settings like you can for the legacy shapes most of you pre-2014 remember.

The Chapter Four ends tonight and I’d be completely remiss if I didn’t encourage you to take a quick peek over there for the MESANGE “Lark Rise Eyes”. As with all of the MESANGE releases you have lots of options and they’ve now included the option to have different sized pupils via a HUD. These eyes can work with everything or just about and would definitely give you that Handsome edge that you’re looking for.

Also MODULUS has a limited edition hair, “LARS” that is available at the Limit8 event. It comes in your favorite tones and has fits for the standard avi as well as mesh ones.

Lastly, {COLD-ASH} has released a phenomenal Jacket with loads of options, which include the ability to wear a scar of just a t-shirt with it. There are several different colors you can choose from and the scarf/shirt can be color changed as well through the included HUD. If you want to look tough for like the mayor of “Pee Pants City” this release currently available at TMD will certainly fit the bill.

That is about all I have for this outing, pleasant shopping to you all and as always stay stylish fellas!

[#316] Welcome To Your Life

post316_01 post316_02

We’re back in business
You’re such a big mess
But I love you
Yeah, I love you!

When is there not newness out there on the grid? With all the events happening in December it’s truly a task to try to keep up with everything, everyone, especially with the holidays. With that said, there are some goodies I have here for you today that you are not going to want to miss so let me break all of this down for you gentleman.

You may or may not have heard that Signature, who is the creator of the GIANNI mesh body and recently the mesh head to accompany it, have an event for items related to their mesh products. Some of the top designers on the grid have contributed items to this event and today I give you just a little taste of what is available.

Avi-Glam has released their first skin for the Signature Gianni head named “Julian”. With 6 different tones to choose from there is no doubt you’ll find the right one.

Speaking of Avi-Glam, they’ve updated and re-released their Serene eyes to now include 30 different options from the original 12. If you haven’t picked these up yet, I suggest you do! There’s a different choice for whatever mood/look you happen to want when the moment arises.

{Cold-Ash} is also a part of this event and they have released the SHERMAN Sweater. With a HUD filled with many options, you have several choices to make this one of your easy to go to winter options in your closet.

TMD is also back and I have two different items both from Modulus. One is the Lou Hair, which you can buy colors individually or in a Fatpack for more than one option. Also available to compliment it is the Jax Hairbase which comes in the same color options and also has a Fatpack available.

Now that you know just some of what’s available at both of these great events, there’s no time like the present to jump right on over there. As always shuttles to the events can be found below in the credits.

Until the next time, keep it stylish fellas!
