[#586] Slow

But it’s you who brought me here
You, through all these years

Grouplove, ♫Slow

Today is the last day for the Pose Fair and I have two posts that before the end of the day that will complete my coverage for the event. Overall I feel like posts I made with the poses have been some of my most inspired work lately. A third (maybe more like half) of my photos have been done with Brenna who has been really helpful in this whole process. In the past I never really did many couples poses because of timing or just ideas but whenever I ask her if she wants to do it there is never a complaint.

We came together to use a pose from a store that I am not familiar with. Lyrium Poses’ “Right Here” is a sweet couples pose that the name could not be better stated. During the process of taking this photo there was no place I wanted to be other than with her and I hope that the finished picture reflects just that. The closeness that this pose depicts really gave me a feeling as if time was standing still.

I’ll be keeping an eye out for future releases from Lyrium now that I know that I like what they’ve put up for sale at the fair.

Lyrium Poses – Right Here

  • Bento enabled couples pose (bento viewer needed)
  • Linked poseballs (can be edited to adjust for avatar difference)
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair until 01/26/19

My outfit is fairly simple and I combined one of the things from my closet (the “Ethan Tank” by Salt & Pepper and the “Steampunk Skinny Jeans” by Joker’s Asylum). I truly like the work done Joker’s Asylum and have purchased several items from the store in the past and I am friends with the owner so by featuring his work, I am showing my support the best I can. The tank goes well with just about anything and I like that it isn’t one of the thin strapped type of tanktops as in real life they bug me (not sure why but they do).

Brenna has been doing a lot more shopping then I have as of late and I’m kind of slacking when it comes down to it but I’ve been having a good time with some of the clothes I already have. It’s better to show that I still enjoy them instead of just blogging them when they are new and never looking at them again or ultimately tossing them away.

We both did our fair share of shopping at the new A+ event that just opened recently which has a diverse selection of items in just about every genre type you can think of. Her dress, the “Office Dress” by Kaithleens is really nice and is a proper attire with just that little hint of sexy going on. Personally I like that she chose the pink version because as nice as black would have been it would be too plain and dare I say boring.

As I write this it’s pretty late in the evening/early morning for some and I am considering just setting this up to post later in the morning but I am going to throw caution to the wind and get out there and then those who are enjoying their weekend will rise from their sleep and have something to look at. One of the things I enjoyed doing before I became a blogger was to check my favorite sites the moment I settled in at the computer after breakfast (or sometimes lunch).

On that note it is time for me to leave you with the credits to go get some shut eye so I can get started on my final post for Pose Fair. This has been a really fun thing to blog with and I am looking forward to the February “Pop-Up” Valentine’s Edition of Pose Fair to visit more great poses to take pictures of Brenna and I with to put in frames in our home.

Take care until next,

B

P.S. Thank you, Lucky, for allowing us to borrow your home for this photo shoot!!!

[#583] I Wanna Dance With Somebody

Clock strikes upon the hour
And the sun begins to fade
Still enough time to figure out
How to chase my blues away

Bootstraps, ♫I Wanna Dance With Somebody
Originally Performed By Whitney Houston

One of the things that excites me about Pose Fair is all the ideas that come from the items official bloggers receive to help promote the stores and the event itself. I am taking full advantage of this by doing something fun with the Vol. 1 Male and Female Dance Poses by CuCa Poses. From the exact moment the ad was released I had a solid idea cemented in my head.

It is an added bonus that “All Night Long Bacdrops” by illuZion are both gifts to visitors to Pose Fair. The poses and the backdrop that I am using in black (pink is also available) work hand in hand to provide a great scene for club life. My days of going to clubs have long since past (though the desire to go to them when I could was fairly low) but at least it is much different in the virtual world.

My first thought going into using these poses was that I wanted to showcase both the male and female ones and gives me a reason to include Brenna. She has a great style and could easily be a blogger if she wanted to be but I respect that it is not her thing; at least I can ask her to pose for me and she does it without hesitation and offers inspiration that is valuable.

Each of these sets has 6 poses with an added bonus pose for purchasers of the FATPACKS with mirror versions included also. I had fun going through the sets to choose the two best poses for Brenna and I to ensure that our motions look as fluid as possible.

CuCa Poses – Male Dances Vol. 1 / Female Dances Vol. 1

  • Bento enabled poses (bento viewer needed for proper use)
  • Pose Stand and Static Poses in each pack.
  • Single poses sold individually as well as in a FATPACK option
  • 6+1 Exclusive FATPACK Poses (Mirrors included)
  • Vol. 2 sets are also available
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair until 01/26/19

Another sure thing when I began planning this scene is I knew what song would be the theme for it but I decided to go with a twist. “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” was the only true choice that I could go with and it’s one of the songs that put Whitney Houston on the map but I decided to use the cover version by Bootstraps which pays tribute to the original in an amazing way.

Either version would have been great to use but going with the more recent version was easier to decide on because everyone knows Whitney’s original version and I wanted to share with readers the cover because I am a fan of Bootstraps and if others find his work through me and enjoy it then it puts a smile onto my face.

There are very few things that are better than discovering new music.

For the ladies who love gachas (and I can safely say that many as well as us fellas do) there is the {Date Night} dress set from Vanilla Bae. If you are not familiar with this store and it would surprise me if there was someone who didn’t, they offer clothing that through scripting can be removed to show what I would politely refer to as unmentionables. They do offer unscripted versions for women that are not into that kind of attire. This set includes several versions of the Corset Dress which Brenna is wearing the short version (there is a much longer one with a slit along the side). The two RARE versions are both of the dresses in the adult version in all the colors offered, however, they are called Lootbox 1 and 2 because of the event they are in (which is called LOOTBOX).

On that note I think I have left you with enough information on this blog entry and look forward to the next few as I start to wind down my coverage for Pose Fair. This has been a very productive month for myself and the blog and if recent developments pan out (vague I know) there will be even more exciting things to share with all of you.

Keep your heads up and also the conversation (topic doesn’t matter!) It has been my honor and I will be back again very soon with another installment.

All the best,

B

[#576] Dangerous Night

What a dangerous night to fall in love
Don’t know why we still hide what we’ve become
Do you want to cross the line?
We’re running out of time
A dangerous night to fall in love

Thirty Seconds To Mars, ♫Dangerous Night

Unlike previous rounds of Pose Fair, I was able to add myself to be able to blog couples poses from the romantic category. Brenna has been a blessing in disguise with her willingness to help me bring the poses of wonderful creators to life with the visions I pull from my head. As much as I consider myself a male blogger and this a male blog overall, this has become almost somewhat of an all purpose place for me to be creative with things that catch my attention.

During the process of taking the photos for this post, I only chose one out of the few I took because to me it was the epitome of what I saw in my head. After completely a few minor adjustments, I showed it to Brenna and she absolutely loved how it turned out and as such is going to end up as a portrait in our home. I can honestly say that means something to me that we can chronicle things like this and remember them as they are affixed to a wall.

Hazeel is one of the stores participating at Pose Fair that I’m unfamiliar but from their releases this round they are on my radar and I will surely be looking out for more of what they do. Their “Enticing” pose has what I would say is a touch of elegance with the chair prop and the way the poses give the idea of a couple that are super classy.

I like that it differs from other couple’s poses that are super up close and lovey (which there is nothing wrong with); it gives a different perspective of how two people can be close with each other without intimacy just a longing look. I find it also wonderful that the included chair prop went well with at least one part of the house that we could photograph.

Hazeel – Enticing Pose & Prop

  • Bento enabled pose (bento viewer required)
  • Mesh chair prop included (with poses inside)
  • Poseballs for both male and female props also included
  • Static poses for male and female included
  • Exclusively @ Pose Fair until 01/31/19

For my look I took things that I previously blogged that I really liked (the “Leo hair” from Modulus and the “Grayson Roll-Up Trousers” from Cold-Ash) and paired it with a shirt/vest combination by Tori Toricelli that I picked up at the December round of the Man Cave. I planned it use it for another photo down the line but I changed my mind at the last minute and used it for this shot; it’s also possible that I can maybe use it then too if enough time passes.

While I stuck to going with older items, Brenna is the new items champion as she brings to her look a bunch of items from Collabor88 including the “Julie” hair from Exile and the “Fancy Blazer and Pants” separates by Pixicat. I really loved the style of the outfit she has on because of how classy the picture is and the ad for the pose shows the female with a dress on. Brenna seems to be a lot better at going outside of traditional ideas then I am but I’m certainly working at it and what I can say now is that will be sooner than later.

On that note I am going to move onto the credits phase of the post due to the fact that the pose and prop set are the only truly new items featured in this post besides Brenna’s items. This also gives me the ability to publish this post and get to work on whatever happens to be next, I’ll probably throw in another entry that’s just me before I get to the other blog post that I also shot with Brenna recently.

Many thanks to anyone who put up with what I consider my ramblings. Whether I know it or not, I do this more than just for me and also because it brings a lot of enjoyment even when it seems like the post is somewhat of a downer (we all have our moments and that is how this thing called life works). Until the next time keep the conversations going!

Warmest regards,

B
