[#627] All Along The Watchtower

 

All along the watchtower
Princes kept the view
While all the women came and went
Barefoot servants too

Jimi Hendrix Experience, ♫All Along The Watchtower♫

 

When I was thinking about songs that I felt would go with the visual of this blog I came up with a few of them but the one that stood out was “All Along The Watchtower”. Originally by Bob Dylan, it’s almost always associated with Jimi Hendrix who did a cover version of it a year after it was first recorded. I have nothing against Bob Dylan, the fact remains that I’ve already used some of his songs already and until today have never featured anything from Hendrix, who I have always felt was an amazing talent who left the world too soon. Perhaps maybe some of the best musicians who were gone much too soon could have continued blazing a path or could have fell off the face of the planet but it’s something we’ll never know as we cherish the things they gave us while they were here.

I chose to visit Ironwood Hills, which is a place I enjoy going to when I want to do some kind of post-apocalyptic scenes. Though with this I didn’t throw in any zombies or anything because I’ve done that and I wanted to make it more about anticipation instead of action. While I may not actually be on a watchtower in the scene, I am keeping an eye out with this pose set by Kirek Poses called the “Defense Pack” there are three different poses each with an accompanying rifle. To me the pose I picked really shows that I’m surveying the area but if need but would be ready to defend myself from whatever could be around the corner.

Kirek Poses – Defense Pose Pack

  • Bento static poses (poseball versions included)
  • 3 different poses
  • Rifle for each pose included
  • Pose Fair exclusive until 05/25/19

My wardrobe is a mixture of both old and new but I’m going to focus on the event specific things that have hit some events this month. My glasses are a part of a new gacha from BlankLine that have two different styles of glasses each with different frame colors to play for. Somehow I got lucky and was able to pull the RARE from the machine that includes a HUD that can change the lenses on it with emoji’s and things like that. I am going to have to see if I can get my hands on one of the commons I was looking for because after getting the the most sought after prize, I felt like I shouldn’t keep trying my luck.

I also have been hanging onto these for a bit since Anthem opened because I wanted to break them in for the right scene and they almost made it into the last one but I reserved them for a little longer. I’m talking about the “Kojima Jeans” from Deadwool, and this is I believe the first major jeans release for the store since the collab with Blueberry a few years ago; I may be wrong so if I am I’m sure someone will inform me. These are fantastic and great fitting with several features including three different leg bottom styles (Deep Cuffs, Rolled Up and Stacked) and for those interested in getting the FATPACK there is a cool belt loop chain included but for those of you who just want maybe one or two color choices you’re in luck as well because it is sold separately too.

The beard I picked up from LeLutka maybe a week or so ago has literally been one of my most favorite things ever and seemingly haven’t been able to take photos without it. I think this evening was the first time I went without it as I took Brenna to the big prom that was posted about on Facebook. I wanted to truly clean up well and did so by shaving my face so I looked fresh. I’m sure that by tomorrow the beard will be back or by the time I take the next photo but we will have to see.

[#621] Porn Star Dancing

 

She wraps those hands around that pole
She licks those lips and off we go
She takes it off nice and slow
Cuz that’s porn star dancin’

My Darkest Days (feat. Ludacris, Chad Kroeger and Zakk Wylde), ♫Porn Star Dancing♫

 

It’s been a few since I last did a post (5 days to be exact) but I’ve been taking time to think about a lot of things; this blog being one of them. I think that if I’m going to continue to do things here that I’m going to need to change some of the ways I do them, which is what I’ve taken a small break to figure out. At the top of the list I’ve been going through the list of partnerships that I have and I know that some of them will be trimmed because right now I’m just not at the right place to give everyone the attention they deserve and or they just do not fit my plan going forward.

There are also some things that I’ve made a commitment to events wise but I do not want to be someone who says they will do something and then doesn’t. I will make good on this and finish out the remaining things that I’ve signed up for but after that it will depend on where I am at before I make any further plans or apply for things.

With that off of my chest, today’s entry is another group shot between myself, Brenna, Lucky and Stef with most of us potentially blogging our versions of the scene. At the time of writing this Stef has posted her view of the scene which came out really nicely (in fact I feel it’s the best so far) and I’m sure Lucky’s will come soon as well. I’m not 100% sure that Brenna did anything with this shoot but I’ve linked everyone’s websites so you can click on their names to check out what they all have going.

The soundtrack to this blog was one that I wanted to cover for a while (consider it a bucket list item for blogging) although I’m going to admit that I’m not very confident with how my version turned out. The scene as it was in front of me was much better in person than I feel it came out in finality but I’m probably more critical of myself than anyone.

I’m going to leave it at that for now but definitely check out the links to everyone’s sites and even look them up on Flickr and follow them (as well as fave their great work).

 

But I know a place where there’s always a show
The dollar decides how far you can go

[#614] Happy

 

We’re so happy and everything is perfect.
The weather’s just so splendid.
Aren’t you just as happy as I am?

Stories Untold, ♫Happy♫

Music ties into a lot of things in my life as many of the artists and songs are as much of a soundtrack to it as they are to the blog posts I create here. Sometimes I discover new musicians through YouTube just by looking up the videos for songs that I already know as the algorithm suggests them as they are similar.

I’m not sure what I was looking for when I discovered the band Stories Untold but I decided to listen to their song “Happy” on a whim; I do not regret it for even a second and it’s this photo that is inspired by the song’s video so the idea is not necessarily mine but it is enough of a difference with the tools I have to work with in SL.

Before I get too far into my thoughts, the thing that drew me to this song is that I can empathize with it as do many people most likely. Sometimes feelings get overwhelming and can show up for a day or so or wind up becoming a cluster until it finally subsides and what is considered to be “feeling normal” or “like yourself” happens. After I heard this tune I realized that the songwriter totally gets it, totally understands that it’s not as easy as it seems to talk about things.

It could be hypocritical that at times I’ve expressed that talking to people when you feel a certain way can help but following your own advice is not as easy.

Blogging definitely helps in a way because I can sometimes just let some of it escape and there is a bit of relief from it which is one of the reasons why I still do it and to a degree still enjoy doing it as well. Giving myself an opportunity to create with the skills that I do have and I’m always trying to learn something new all the time, I guess it acts as a bit of a poor man’s therapy session.

In a related an unrelated note, the band I’ve put a bit of a spotlight on in this blog is playing their very last show in a few days which is a bit sad as well as after only two albums which both are really good (which is of course my opinion but I feel that fans of theirs agree). Things come into your life when they need to or you discover them at a time of need and I’m honestly grateful for it.

Now to focus on my look for this blog, which is mostly a mix of old and new Deadwool items with an added touch of a paper bag over my head much like “Bad Bag Bob” as he is known in the video. I did a look around the marketplace for paper bags worn on the head and the one I am wearing by Diabology was the closest I could find to the video. I probably could have just as easily just found a plan bag and just did a little post processing magic on it to make it look true to it but using creative license prevailed in the long run.

As I mentioned at the beginning of the first paragraph, my look is a mix of both old and new Deadwool and those that visit this blog on any kind of basis will know that I don’t talk about older items and that I feature new things such as the “Suede Jacket” that is currently a part of the equal10 lineup for about another week or so. The detail of the jacket is fantastic and the options for it knock it out of the park as far as things go, there is one slight thing that I would have done differently.

One thing that bothers me sometimes about clothes is that this jacket is structured with the arms stuck in a solitary position so if you wanted to use a specific pose it would not be very effect because it wouldn’t show any arm movement. Don’t let this deter you from potentially shopping for this item because aside from photography purposes, it’s definitely excellent fashion that deserves a spot in your wardrobe.

Deadwool – Suede Jacket

  • Original mesh
  • 10 different choices
  • FATPACK option available
  • Bonus content within FATPACK
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake), Signature (Geralt and Gianni) as well as SLink Physique mesh bodies.
  • Currently exclusive to the Equal10 event until 04/05/19

Right now I am in between events and things so I will be putting together some looks with some of my brand partners to help with getting back on track after taking a couple days to just veg out and relax once Skin Fair ended. That was a really fun opportunity but also one I devoted lots of time and energy to thus requiring a little bit of extra down time.

This weekend will also be what I consider my official blogiversary as my first solo post ever which was under the banner of the former title of this blog was made in 2014. Five years is something I consider to be a long time especially when it comes to devoting myself to it as a serious thing (not just like a time passer or hobby which is also fun too).

I went from taking pics of me and everyone around me at the time (some of which are no longer around for whatever the reason may be). Most of my photography now is blog related and probably at some point I will scale back with the brands or events I blog for so I can take more photos that aren’t specifically for anything other than enjoyment. I am not at that point yet but the reality is that all things do eventually come to a stopping point.

Will it be another 5 years? That’s not something I can honestly even say because the platform I’m working with may or may not be here but truth is that the logic in it was the same back when I started so I am just taking things a step at a time and making sure that I don’t let it become a chore (as if that becomes the reality then it is time for me to move on).

I’d say possibly check back sometime this weekend to see if I’ve done a special post but I don’t want to make any promises that I cannot keep. Until then I hope you’ve been entertained and see you all again soon!

 

If I say I’m happy maybe one day you’ll see,
I hope maybe you’ll be, one day, happy

[#605] I Wanna Be Sedated

 

Twenty-twenty-twenty four hours to go
I wanna be sedated
Nothin’ to do and nowhere to go
I wanna be sedated

The Ramones, ♫I Wanna Be Sedated♫

 

It is that time again guys and gals for makeovers galore all in part to Skin Fair 2019! A cornucopia of new mesh heads, skins, make-ups, shapes, tattoos and accessories galore all so that you can upgrade your existing look or completely give yourself a new one. Some of us would love for that to be as easy in the real world but it doesn’t work that way unfortunately which is why it is so much fun to be able to do it virtually through the Second Life platform.

Batten down the hatches and bare with me as this post is very information heavy with quite a few pictures . This is my second post for the event (the first was pre-opening) so I have visual maps of the layout for all of you to click on and get an idea where you want to go before you even land. Just keep in mind that the first day or so will be pretty traffic heavy so if you don’t get in right this minute these items will not be going anywhere.

The event lasts until the 24th of March which gives everyone plenty of time to do their thing.

Vendetta is participating in this years fair and I am familiar with them for some of their releases from The Men Jail as well as Hipster Men’s Event. “Adrian” is one of three exclusives and has been created for LeLutka branded heads (Andrea and Guy respectively). The tones as you will see in the chart that I am going to post below are more golden in nature (think various tans). The face is mature yet still youthful and can be given a beard treatment to look a bit older if desired.

A shape is included in the package but if you are first giving this brand a try, the body skins are sold separately at their in-world location which I will also provide a taxi for you in the style portion of the blog; if you are curious as to which tone that I am wearing I can tell you that I have on Tone 4.

Vendetta – Adrian Skin

  • Created for LeLutka brand heads
  • Shape included
  • 3 tones to choose from (04-05-06)
  • Body appliers sold separately
  • Exclusive to Skin Fair until 03/24/19

For someone who has an affinity for body ink, Skin Fair is going to be a treasure trove for me with many designers releasing tattoos as part of their exclusives or if they are only tat creators then all of their exclusives will be body modifications. Carol G., one of the fair’s proud sponsors has released this nifty (yes I’m old school so I can say stuff like that) tattoo called “Insight”.

It comes in two versions (Black+White and Color) with 4 different pigments (Dark to Light). Looking at this tattoo closely you’ll be able to make out some familiar icons from pop culture fame (Hint: look on the back!)  This is my first go round with Carol G. even though I am familiar with the name through various events but that is one of the great things about being a blogger for an event is that you can sample stores you may not have considered before.

I’ll definitely be keeping a closer eye on the releases from this store, highly impressed with this tattoo for sure. This is one I’d recommend so now you know!

Carol G. – Insight Tattoo

  • Applier HUDs for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, Signature, SLink and TMP mesh bodies
  • Two versions (Black+White and Color / Sold separately)
  • 4 different pigments in HUD (Dark to light)
  • Exclusive to Skin Fair until 03/24/19

As promised, here are the Skin Fair 2019 sim maps so you can begin to plan your mad shopping sprees. Enjoy everything that Skin Fair has to offer and be sure to come back as well to see what I’ll be featuring next from the event!

Transitioning from Skin Fair to another event just opening today is The Men Jail, where I am wearing a hair from L&E called “Helton” in Black (Blonde and Brown packs are also available). Style wise I would say it reminds me a bit of a modern mohawk and that prompted me to go the punk rock route with my soundtrack choice for this blog (in start contrast to last blogs dabble into Country).

The Ramones were pioneers of the punk rock scene and have inspired many artists that have come after them and newer artists are being influenced by their music as I write this. To find a hair that reflects this type of music is something I feel is important to the overall theme of the blog entry.

Now that you are aware (which you probably already were anyway) that there are new events open (Collabor88 has also opened today as well but I don’t have anything to blog from that but it is a point of interest) there’s no excuse to why you can’t start off your weekend with a little retail therapy and become a brand new you or find a new outfit or accessories.

On that note I am going to turn you over to the much anticipated stylings of this blog entry and take a bit of a breath and gear up for the next exciting entry for me as I navigate through the wonders of Skin Fair and other events/items within my grasp. I can already assure you in the posts to come there will be some different things from me.

See you around the corner everyone!

 

I can’t control my fingers
I can’t control my toes

[#604] It’z Just What We Do

 

Hey, we might look a little crazy tonight, hey baby that’s alright,
It’s our backwoods, boondock roots, it’s just what we do.
It’s just what we do.

Florida Georgia Line, ♫It’z Just What We Do♫

 

It’s the anniversary month for me as a blogger and there’s a lot going on for March so I am going to try and keep it rolling as best as I can to make sure I cover a lot of great things from events like Skin Fair, The Men Jail and The Men’s Department to stores like Cold-Ash and Native Urban. The energy I am riding on right now is great and I decided to visit Whimberly to see if I could find a spot for a photo.

I thought it would be fun to kick back and have a few cold ones to celebrate some of the milestones that I’ve accomplished lately as well as the aforementioned anniversary of blogging on my own (most won’t remember that I started blogging as part of a team for a site before I branched out).

The Men Jail opens up for a new round tomorrow and I have utilized a few items that I thought were fun. Since I already crossed off Corey Hart’s “Sunglasses At Night” I needed a different tune so with a scene that screams country I decided to go with one of my faves of the genre, Florida Georgia Line. I’ll be the first to say that Country is not my first choice when it comes to music but there are some really good artists and songs that are within the genre.

The sunglasses I have on are from a new designer/store that I have not heard of before named Ultraman Creations. The “Emperor Glasses” are pretty stylish and my favorite part about them is that they flip up revealing regular lenses. Reminds me a lot of the character of Dwayne Wayne played by Kadeem Hardison on “A Different World” though the style is a little different they still have the flip up action in common. The included HUD gives you the option to choose from 3 metals on the intricate part of the frame and 4 on the outside lenses. There is also a special section for the outside lenses where there are graphics like hearts and x’s as well as “Bad Boy”.

All in all these are a pretty fun pair of shades and it is not something you see a lot on the grid. I applaud the effort of Ultraman Creations and look forward to seeing what other types of products the release in the future and when someone asks about them, I can say I was one of the first to feature them on These Conversations Kill.

The other item I have from TMJ is the “X. Beer Bucket” by X. Store (another new store that I’m just getting acquainted with). While the main function of the bucket is to be worn by the owner (from which beverages can be dispensed to anyone who clicks it), I’ve chosen to use it in a different capacity as a decor function. It also comes with a bottle of brew that has a hand hold animation when worn.

Pretty soon the weather will get nicer and there will be in-world barbecues and this will definitely come in handy for the brew consumers in your circle or family. Give it a closer look when The Men Jail opens tomorrow along with many other offerings this round.

Ultraman Creations – Emperor Sunglasses

  • Original Mesh
  • Texture HUD included
  • 3 metals for frames
  • 4 colors for outside lenses
  • 9 special graphics for outside lenses
  • Resizable through HUD
  • Exclusive to The Men Jail until 03/28/19

X. Store – X. Beer Bucket

  • Original mesh
  • Wearable beer bucket has built in pose with beverage giving
  • Wearable bottle of beer with built in hold animation
  • Exclusive to The Men Jail until 03/28/19

I have a new jacket to wear courtesy of Cold-Ash by way of The Men’s Department. Much like the last release the “Ryan Bomber Jacket” comes with an option for a hooded sweatshirt or a regular shirt; considering I wore the hoodie version with the last release even though I love them I have to at least be fair.

With the FATPACK there is 9 different jacket colors with 11 different hoodie colors and 10 shirt colors which makes matching it up with the rest of your wardrobe as easy as can be. I chose to wear the red (or crimson if you prefer) color to go along with the red tint of the lenses on the glasses. I could have gone with blue but I wanted to have some contrast between myself and the night sky in the photo.

One hugely positive thing I can say of Cold-Ash is that while there may not be releases for every event under the sun, the events the store participates in get a high quality item because CA doesn’t take shortcuts or rush things just to make a deadline and that is something I can appreciate as I’m sure everyone out there does as well. With there being several more weeks of the cold going on I am nearly positive this will make another appearance before the weather turns decent.

Cold-Ash – RYAN Bomber Jacket (FatPack)

  • Original mesh
  • 9 jacket colors
  • 11 hoodie colors
  • 10 shirt colors
  • Single versions also for sale
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake), Signature (Geralt+Gianni) and SLink Physique mesh bodies
  • Currently at The Men’s Department until 03/30/19

I am going to take this opportunity as I have plenty to blog this month to wrap things up as quick as possible and turn over to the credits. Hopefully if you aren’t able to get out to shop before the weekend that set aside some time to visit some of the latest rounds of events and visit some of your favorite stores as you never know if you’ll stumble upon something new.

Another one is in the books but I’m looking forward to what is next and I sure hope that you all stop back again to see what I might be up to but until then…see ya! P.S. Go visit Whimberly it’s an awesome place for photography!!!

 

Time to get your buzz on and your love on, all night long,
And if you play your hand right, you won’t have to go home alone.

[#601] Woke Up This Morning

Wives, mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers
Don’t you wish you didn’t function, don’t you wish you didn’t think beyond the next paycheck
And the next little drink?
Well, you do, so make up your mind to go on ’cause when you woke up this morning
Everything you had was gone, everything you had was gone

Alabama 3, ♫Woke Up This Morning♫

When it comes to old timey mafia films or television I’m a casual fan but that doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy them less than the hardcore passionate ones. I’ll admit that I’ve really not seen much of if any of the Sopranos even though I’m sure that once I get around to seeing it that I’d enjoy it a lot as all indications are it has great acting and a compelling story.

My scene today is a tribute to the many mobster themed sources of entertainment over the years including but not limited to The Godfather series, Goodfellas, Scarface and many more that would take forever to list. Perhaps though for the aficionado’s will see the call out to The Godfather with the cat sitting on my lap and my bro Lucky sitting across from me as if he’s there to ask for a favor.

I didn’t want to completely recreate the scene exactly as I wanted to put my own touches on it so that it could stand on it’s own and not be considered a “rip-off” of sorts; I am confident that this photo will appeal to many but also if not I know I had fun with it. I would also be remiss if I didn’t thank Brenna for helping set up the scene with me based on ideas I had given her.

Having a bad memory sometimes leads to me repeating things and if I do then I apologize profusely. One of the newest stores that I am proudly a part of is Lapointe & Bastchild and for the first time I am blogging their work and being that as a blogger I am nervous because they have been one of my favorite designers over the years. Making sure that I get it right when it comes to featuring their clothing and accessories is important to me so here I go at my very first attempt as part of their team.

Most of the time I’m usually wearing black suits or tuxedos so when I found out that L&B released a specifically white rendition of their “Marc Tuxedo” I jumped at the chance to make it my mafia “Don” attire. As with their other suits and tuxes it’s very well made and fits perfectly. The suit is highly customizable with different variations of white (like the cream colored version that I’m wearing) as well as options for changing the color of the shirt, bow tie and pocket square. You can also make the pocket square invisible if they are not your thing.

If you’re a guy that’s looking for a tux that isn’t your traditional black then a visit to Lapointe & Bastchild is in order to give the “Marc Tuxedo Basic White” edition a try; if you do make the purchase, you should also consider the “Edge Oxford” shoes to compliment them for a complete look.

Lapointe & Bastchild – Marc Tuxedo Basic White Edition

  • Original mesh
  • HUD includes options to change jacket, shirt, bow tie, pocket square and pants
  • Many different style combinations to choose from
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake), Fitted Classic, Signature (Gianni) and SLink Physique mesh bodies

Admittedly I’m not a decor blogger by default but with all the work that Brenna did helping to construct this scene so at the end of this blog you’ll find the decor credits as well as both the styles for myself and Lucky to make this a very thorough blog post. I’d also like to thank Andraus Thor who is the creator for THOR, a decor and accessories store for assisting me with a feline problem. You were a big help in facilitating my kitty addiction so thank you very much.

On this note with all the info that there is to give to you I am going to wrap up this blog post and start to begin preparation for my turn as a blogger for Skin Fair, which officially opens to the public in a weeks time. I am very excited about this and look forward to helping out hopefully not only both my fellow gentleman but also the gals as well.

It’s the weekend so I hope everyone has a chance to relax and take it easy; I’ll be back again with more from the virtual landscape so keep your eyes peeled until next time!

But you’re one in a million, you’ve got that shotgun shine
Born under a bad sign with a blue moon in your eyes

[#587] The Devil’s In The Next Room

Pick it up, pick it up, pick it up
Pick up the phone
You said it yourself you’re scared of being alone
You said it yourself that you can crack the code
But the static you hear automatically keeps you exposed on your own

Shinedown, ♫Devil

Not many television shows have had the longevity that Supernatural has had for the last 14 years. It is one of my favorite shows and that fact they can still keep my attention this long tells me that they are doing something right. I’ve started some shows in the past that I never ended up finishing (The Vampire Diaries which I was gladly able to pick back up on Netflix). The adventures that the brothers Winchester go on are very exciting no matter what they or their acquintances (friends and family as well) get into.

I have done several posts displaying my fandom for the show from the perspectives of Sam & Dean as well as done on where I had a friend play Castiel. However, not once did I ever think about doing something that pays homage to one of the many antagonists on the show: the demons. During my post processing I had an issue where the black smoke I wanted coming out of the meat suit (the vessel the demon is hiding out in as referenced by the show). It was too dark so I decided to go with red, which man of the higher ups in the demon world have when “smoking out” of a vessel. Notably Crowley and I believe Lucifer himself have displayed the crimson version to my knowledge. There have probably been others but having been on the air for 14 seasons (and rewatching them from the beginning would take forever) it is easy to forget things.

Pose Fair ends tonight and I am hoping this is the equivalent of going out with a bang. I’ve enjoyed this tremendously and am likely going to take a day or so break from posting to recharge (maybe) before I start to see things from the February special edition for Valentine’s goes into effect. I would like to thank Ruby and Jason (as well as everyone else behind the scenes) for creating such an awesome environment to blog for. It is an honor to have been chosen by you for this event and I cannot express how much it means to me.

Getting down to it my last pose is from CORPUS Poses and is easily enough called “Him”. It is a varied set of standing and a sitting pose and one of them happened to be one where I am looking up which was perfect to get in just the right angle where I could simulate a demon vacating my avatar with a little bit of help from the LeLutka face hud (the facial expressions are not a part of the pose just to let you know). There are five poses to this set in all and they are all really usable in just about any situation you can think of.

To take a catchphrase from another show “TREAT YOSELF” and stop by the Pose Fair one more time or for the first time before it ends tonight. Your photography will thank you for it and that is something I can genuinely guarantee.

Corpus Poses – Him Pose Set

  • Bento enabled pose (bento viewer needed)
  • 5 different poses to choose from
  • Static poses for you to put in your own poseballs or pose stands
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair until 01/26/19 (Ends tonight so hurry!!!!)

For this blogs style, I decided on casual while combining and older release with a brand new one. My shirt comes from Deadwool and is called “Lorenzo”; it is a tucked in button down with shirt underneath. It’s one of those pieces of clothing I like to revisit and it just happens to pair up well with the “Roll Up Pants” by Native Urban which just hit the racks  at Uber a few days ago.

Gentleman if you like dress up style pants with a bit of a roll up cuff at the bottom then these are definitely your new jam. While single color options can be nice I can only stress how much of a value it is to get the complete FATPACK and give yourself many options to allow for pairing it with about any of the shirts in your virtual closets. To be able to change parts of it such as the belt, the pants and even the slight little bit of boxer shorts poking out I can’t find a better reason not to go all in.

Native Urban – Roll Up Pants

  • Original mesh
  • Single options sold seprately
  • FATPACK includes HUD to change 7 parts (14 colors available)
  • Fitted for Signature (Gianni) and Maitreya (Lara) for the ladies
  • Currently exclusive to Uber until 02/23/19

On that note I think it is time to finish this up with giving you all the style information that pertains to this look and of course if there is something here that you see that you are interested in that is not listed then first check my Credits page which lists what head, skin, and body that I am presently wearing on a consistent basis. If it is anything else then get a hold of me through social media or by email which is on my about page.

Time to go celebrate all the creativity I’ve had with the Pose Fair and maybe relax with some games and time with great people. I will catch everyone again hopefully very soon but until then be well and start a conversation and keep it going.

Best regards,

B
