[#375] 6th Avenue Heartache

And the same black line that was drawn on you
was drawn on me
And now it’s drawn me in…

6th Avenue Heartache” –  The Wallflowers (ft. Adam Duritz)  ♫Listen

A lot of bloggers out there tend to stick with only the current and new items in their entries but sometimes I like to mix some of the new items from current events to some of my more favorite items within a certain time range or from a certain brand that I know is relevant and still kicking butt on the fashion scene. One of those that comes to mind is [Deadwool]. In my last posting I wore the “Strider” boots because it fit with what I was working with. For this look I combined some of my new items with the “Pleated” Jeans. I’ve featured them a few times but that is the brilliance of purchasing the full packs because you are not always wearing the same one each time out.

One of my favorite brands, Modulus, has two new offerings at the freshly restocked “Limit8” event. For those of you who are unfamiliar with it, it is full of different designers and items with at least one item with a limited amount of product to sell and once it’s sold out it will no longer be sold again in that form. There are two items from Modulus being sold and I’ll start with the “Tate” Hair. It’s a hair that is in between the short to medium range and is combed over to the right side with a little bit of a floaty look. This item is not one of the limited items but it goes perfectly with the “David” hairbase that is also being sold and is the limited edition item for the event of which only 100 copies will be sold. I would take a trip there as soon as you can to take a look at this item because I have no doubt it will go fast.

Also recently re-opened is the Men Only Monthly event, which happens to be one of the ones I look forward to each 20th day of the month. I have two different items from it but we’ll start first with the review copy of the “Andrej” skin from Avi-Glam. I like the youthful look that this skin provides and goes excellent with the “Dante” Shape that is also available at M.O.M. Avi-Glam has also relaunched their body skins which “Andrej” is the first release to get the treatment of new and updated skin tones. There are 8 tones to choose from (Ivory, Fair, Light, Honey, Latte, Tan, Dark, and Cocoa) and the v2 body appliers which you can find at their main location have an option for soft or athletic. Head over to Men Only Monthly and grab some demos because you might just like what you see and want to have it for yourself.

One of my many weaknesses when it comes to shopping (other than skins or gacha machines) is shoes. If it is made by one of my favorite designers there’s more than likely a chance that I’m going to buy it and buy a full pack at that. Kustom9 certainly pulled me in when I saw the “TCHEKOV” Sneakers. These shoes are based off one of the popular brands of low top shoes that I’m not going to name specifically but can tell you that it is named after an animal. The color choice I went with this time is the Suede Cream as it is something that I might not normally go with but I went out of my comfort zone of monotone type colors and felt this fit pretty well with the rest of the outfit. Inside the package you will find sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, SLink and TMP for the gals respectively) and Gianni, SLink, and TMP (for the fellas) as well as Unrigged for both.

For the pose and backdrop of this scene, I’m utilizing the Wetcat & Lemon’s “Alley” backdrop which you can find at FaMESHed until the end of the month. This set can be purchased with or without the animations if you decide that you would prefer to use your own. The one thing that bothered me about this is that to try and use my own lightning I had to edit the build and find the various light sources within it but it is a small price to pay really for a well put together backdrop.

Now that I’ve gone through just about everything there is to know about this look, I’ll leave you with the complete credits of what I am wearing and where to find it either by store or by event. Thank you for taking a look and as always until next time, stay stylish fellas!

[#364] And After All…You’re My Wonderwall

Back beat, the word is on the street
that the fire in your heart is out
I’m sure you’ve heard it all before
but you never really had a doubt

Wonderwall” –  Oasis  ♫Listen

After some needed rest and relaxation I’m back with another great look for you all. I became inspired when I was listening to some music over the weekend and came across the song that would become the theme for this photo session.

I didn’t want to quite mimic the look of the original video for the song so I kinda took a few elements out of it and made it my own and I feel like I did extremely well. Probably so well that the Gallagher Bros. if they could manage to be in the same room for a moment would find a way to fight about it. Not like they ever needed any reasons!

Some of these items I already had just kinda waiting in my closet to use (some have already been used but begged to be featured again) and the rest are things I picked up along the way.

The face I have on this time out is new at the current round of Men Only Monthly and is the “Nardy” skin by the No. Project. Sometimes I have difficulty choosing which kind of tone I want to use from this store because the numbers they use just kind of roam all over the place and don’t necessarily go from light to dark. However, I found a great one in the 08 tone. The HUD you purchase gives you the option to start with a hairbase and eyebrows or neither at all. You can add or subtract with the HUD as you wish.

Also from Men Only Monthly are the “Columbia” jeans from E-Clipse Designs. These jeans fit absolutely perfectly with the Signature size along with the body itself. I didn’t have to do any editing whatsoever with this and they go great with low top shoes which I always seem to wear whenever I can. Also included in the package are sizes for SLink Physique and TMP mesh bodies if you do not have a [SIGNATURE] Gianni body.

The shirt I’m wearing is from ExalteD and was originally released at the March round of Men Only Monthly. It got lost for a minute in my closet but as I was looking for something to put this look together, I found it again and it was perfect for the visual I had. If you happened to miss it at the event I’d go take a look at their main location and grab a demo.

There’s also still time to hit the current April round of FaMESHed and get the wonderfully crafted “Dawn” backdrop from Wetcat & Lemon. There are two versions you can purchase: one with poses included or one without. You do get both versions if you elect to go with the version with the poses. It’s a great scene of a bedroom with a curtain blowing from the breeze. This is the second backdrop that I have acquired at FaMESHed from this brand and can tell you the quality is bar none. If you are a fan of backdrops you’d certainly like this one.

Lastly, you have a little time to grab the “Iram Eyes” by MESANGE at the On9 event which comes to a conclusion in a few short days. There are 15 individual eyes to choose from or you can get them all in a Fatpack that includes a HUD that works with both the included mesh eyes and also works with OMEGA applier enabled eyes as well.

Now that you know some of what went into this photo session, I’m going to leave you with the credits so you yourself can check out the stores and events featured and look at them yourself.

Until next time, stay stylish as always 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

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!

[#355] Bad To The Bone

On the day I was born
the nurses all gathered round
And they gazed in wide wonder
At the joy they had found

The head nurse spoke up
said “leave this one alone”
She could tell right away
That I was bad to the bone

Bad To The Bone” –  George Thorogood and The Destroyers  ♫Listen

It seems that I am on a nice little roll lately with coming up with ideas and being able to do the photo sessions and get everything organized in a timely manner. It doesn’t always work that way but when it does it makes me just a little bit happier that I can bring you info on great items.

I recently received a review copy of one of Avi-Glam’s recent skins called “Ash”. Now this was a challenge for me as it is a standard avatar skin and I have not blogged one in nearly 2 years or more. So putting this together took a lot of patience but I think it turned out well. I think it makes me appreciate the invention of mesh, not to mention Bento. I went with the “Light” tone because it was just right for what I normally like to wear. Along with this skin, Avi-Glam also released one for the TMP mesh head and also new updated body appliers which for this set of photos I am using the [Signature] Gianni ones and it looks really nicely toned. Not overly muscular and not flat either.

The VERSUS event is still going strong for a little while longer, and I am wearing the “Wash” denim tone of the SABOTAGE “Searing Denim” which comes with a HUD that you can change the color of briefs you are wearing or to remove them completely and even to have the flame graphic on or off as well. I thought that was a really cool touch but I chose to leave the flame design on because that is what makes these jeans unique in the first place.

{kokoia} has been on my radar for a little bit now with the brand becoming more noticeable in the events they are being featured in. Their “Tussio” sneakers are available for purchase at the March round of TMD, which you still have a few more days to browse before the shut down for the April round. If you haven’t already been there, I encourage you to go as there is literally just about everything there. Getting back to these sneakers, they are a true value as the package contains 10 different colors and a HUD to change different parts of the shoe. There are endless combinations to be had. I just so happened to color mine so that they resembled something closely associated with the flames on my jeans.

Wetcat Poses has been around for quite a long time and as far as I can remember, they have been here just about as long as I have in-world. They did a collaboration with LEMON to make a building prop complete with a street lamp and a fire escape. It also includes poses for couples, females and males. I am definitely about this build and hope to use it again for a project because the textures and poses are very well done. A big shout out and props to these guys for creating a really cool backdrop.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this installment and I look forward to being back with you all again soon. Until then, stay stylish fellas!

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!
