[#475] She’s Got The Looks That Kill

Now she’s a cool, cool black
Moves like a cat
If you don’t get her game
You might not make it back

Motley Crue, ♫Looks That Kill


Don’t adjust your screens! What you are seeing is something that would be considered by me as taking a risk for the simple reason is that These Conversations Kill is a male fashion blog and while that is true, I’ve given some thought to some things and this is what I’ve come up with.

There are so many times in the past that I’ve taken the safe path because I thought that was what worked for me but now that I am starting to look at a bigger picture with the help of being included into this years Pose Fair (and the predominantly female presence of products) that I can step out of my comfort zone and give a spotlight to something different.

Fueled by the inspiration from LV Designs and their cost alternative bento mesh head, I dusted off the Brembot (a play on my name and fembot, which is a reference to Austin Powers) so that I could see what kind of creativity I could perform when I wasn’t the premier focus. Yes, I am still a part of the scene but in a very minute (and not functioning way).

You might be wondering a little bit more about the LV Designs bento head. Her name is Chloe and she’s a lower cost alternative to people who may not have the ability to own other brands. The head is bare bones with basics of a few lipstick choices but it is omega applier compliant so you can choose to wear the provided skin or try out something different by demoing skins that are omega compatible. The body skin is sold separately and is made by Colvati and matches Tone 3 if you choose to go the path that designer, Lee Quirina intended.

Chloe was not the only thing that inspired me to ultimately step out of my comfort zone. Talks with several friends and also contemporaries have more than once said that going outside the box (which I have before but not to this scale) is not a bad thing. I think I’m finally realizing a much bigger picture as well and I it’s caused me to do a double take (literally and a good segue).

Double Take poses released two different exclusive pose sets for the April round of Pose Fair 2018, the one that Brembot is using is the “Universal” set; it has 5 different static bento poses that are of the highest quality. The reason I chose this set is that one of the poses best fit the idea I was going for in this scene which I would liken to that of a female assassin making her way through a mission.


I may still be working on perfecting my close-up shots, I feel like I did a little bit better with this go round. New things are always a work in progress and as I continue to try new things they may not be 100% great but that is what putting the work in to make them the best you think they can be.

Brembot’s outfit consists of items from the Gabriel “Armed Style” gacha which I believe first made it’s appearance at Shiny Shabby a few months ago but is now playable at the main store. I had come up with several other ideas for this outfit (along with the male one) but plans can change and I came up with a better visual to use it individually. Definitely a creative and great set for those of you gals who are interested in being a soldier (possibly in an RP setting) and want clothing that is not only made well but has great texturing.

Paparazzi is one of my top few brands when it comes to scene building and backdrops. I really loved the way that their “The Underpass” backdrop helped set the scene and the story of what I was trying to create. There were probably a few different ways I could have gone about it but in the long run this definitely worked out well.

Once again it is time to lead you to the credits (although there is not much in the way of them but that is okay). I truly enjoyed putting on a different hat of sorts and look forward to what I can accomplish in the future. I’ll be back again soon with more from Pose Fair, and possibly even FaMESHed and the freshly stocked April round of The Men’s Department.

Until our paths cross again, onto the next conversation…

[#441] Ride

Yeah, I think about the end just way too much
But it’s fun to fantasize
On my enemies who wouldn’t wish who I was
But it’s fun to fantasize

Ride♫ – Twenty One Pilots

My last post I feel was likely my greatest contribution to this site and anything coming after it might not quite measure up but there is the will to try and I’ve got another look for you. This one is actually inspired by the vocalist for the music group, Twenty One Pilots. I’ve just started getting into the band since about maybe a year and a half to two years (well before they broke up with “Heathens”). I first recall hearing their song “Heavy.Dirty.Soul” on the radio or somewhere and I thought it was unique but I didn’t pursue learning about them further until I started hearing “Stressed Out”.

I really enjoy the beat and took time to start really paying attention to the lyrics and they grabbed me. Some of the words to their songs can be a bit odd or silly but a good chunk of them hold a message and a meaning and that’s why today’s look and song choice is dedicated to the band and their music.


While I know it’s likely not the idea that is being conveyed, the scene I set up depicts someone falling to their likely end; which I feel is loosely part of the ideal in the song based on some of the lyrics. My interpretation is someone is thinking about their life and it flashing before them as they are falling which seem logical doesn’t it? If I were in that situation myself (being that I’m afraid of heights I’d not want to be in that predicament), I’d be thinking of all the people that would be left behind and how I’d rather my end be sacrificing myself to spare them.

The only new item I have in this look is the “Mikel” skin by Stray Dog. It’s available in appliers for both LeLutka and Catwa but I choose to go with LeLutka because I haven’t used it much since purchasing “Victor” and getting a skin for “Daniel” that I really like a lot. I’m trying my best to be fair to all the products I have but there’s always one that is going to suffer from negligence.


The “Blurryface” look may not be 100% accurate but given what was out there to work with I feel like I did pretty good at least meeting it halfway. The Urkin Body Smear was the closest I could find and it’s a cool group gift if you don’t already have it; the Clemmm brand has some really unique things at their store as well. I can be a bit strange at times so stores with unique items like that come in handy.

I think that the oil type smear on the neck and the red beanie are more of the trademark look of “Blurryface” that I wanted to capture and it looks like I managed to do okay with it; the photography session from setting up to finish was satisfactory which I’ll take as another small victory.


Above is a close-up of the “Mikel” skin and for the first time in a while I am pairing the LeLutka head with the Gianni body by [SIGNATURE], which happens to be another product I have been neglecting but that’s because I’ve really enjoyed what the Belleza body has to offer.

There are always pros and cons to every product you use and purchase on the grid and maybe someday I’ll go into them in better detail but I think as far as using Omega Appliers for tattoos and makeup, these to products use them best. I did try using the Urkin Body Smear with CATWA/Belleza but the seem on the neck just did not mesh right and I didn’t feel like trying to edit it out as it would be a false representation so I went with the safe bet and paired this head and body together and it worked great.

Once more it is time for me to wrap things up and get you to what is probably the best part (and if you are in a hurry the part you skip to right away anyway haha). Enjoy browsing the style credits and I hope that you find something at any one of the stores or the newest round of TMD where “Mikel” can be found. Maybe I’ll see you out there and don’t be afraid to talk to me and say hello, it would be nice to hear from any of my readers; thanks again for joining me on this adventure!

Onto the next conversation…

Photographs Taken @ Mopire City

HAIR/HAT: *Drot*/C.A.M.O. – Fisherman’s Beanie
HEAD: LeLutka – Andrea v 3.1
EYES: MESANGE – Novelist Eyes – Brennan (Not Available)
FACE: Stray Dog – Mikel – TONE 2 @ TMDNEW

As previously mentioned, this skin is available for both LeLutka and CATWA in four different tones (1-4) and has a HUD individually for brow or browless application (freckles are included in both). I really like that the skin doesn’t look super young and has some maturity and grit to it as if you might not want to cross paths with this person down a darkened alley. Another quality product from the Stray Dog brand in my estimation.

BODY: [SIGNATURE] Gianni v.4.4
PAINT: Clemmm – Urkin Body Smear v1.1 (Group Gift)

For those of you who like to role-play this applier would work great for anyone who is trying to put together a demon/demoness look; my scene didn’t call for it but you definitely need to see the entire design of this application, because you would definitely be impressed as I know I was.

SHIRT: ExalteD – T-Shirt Smoker White

This basic pocket tee has just a little extra with it, you’ll find that in the pocket are a few cigarettes for added effect. However, if you decide you do not want them in your pocket there is an included HUD that gives you the option to remove them or add them at your own desire. Even though I personally do not smoke it is a cool added feature to separate it from t-shirts that are similar in style.

Compatible With: Belleza and Signature male bodies.

PANTS: M:NA – Meraki

This item was previously blogged but I would like to mention since then it’s been updated as I believe when I first purchased it there wasn’t a size for the Belleza body and now there is.

SHOES: #VERYRARE “Storm” Vans #BLACK

Le Poppycock: *Unleashed* B (Hard To Kill)

[#431] Little Saint Nick

Just a little bobsled we call it old Saint Nick
But she’ll walk a toboggan with a four speed stick
She’s candy-apple red with a ski for a wheel
And when Santa hits the gas, man, just watch her peel

Little Saint Nick♫ – Beach Boys

Even though I feel like this is still way way too early to be doing these kind of posts. To plead my case is that I’m featuring a new pose that right now is available at “The Naughty List” event. So that at least gives me cause and some justification though I would normally wait a little bit longer to do Christmas themed posts as I tend not to do them well.


Consider this the beginning of These Conversations Kill’s seasons greetings. I have to admit that while this scene is a little racy compared to my usual offerings, I thought it would be a little fun and give this pose it’s due. Image Essentials has provided the Naughty List (4) pose as a part of my partnership with them and as I said above it is at “The Naughty List” event which runs from the 9th of December until the 31st so there’s plenty of time. Not only is there two poses for the fellas there are other poses in this series. Go check out the event and see if there’s something that might aid you in creating your 2017 Christmas Card!


The above shot I have to say gives me a bit of a chuckle. The way I took it seems to imply that “Hipster” Santa as I refer to the look as…is doing something more than just inspecting the Christmas tree. However, I assure you that there weren’t any shenanigan’s of any sort going on. At least it was fun to take a break from my more serious blog posts.


Also featuring in this post are one of the new releases from MESANGE that is available at We Love RP. I’m also wearing a hair that is a part of a new group from Taketomi and Burley brands respectively. I’ll give you a little more info about it down in the credits section. Many people are going to be excited about this I can assure you.

That’s about all I have to say for this portion of the entry so let me usher you to the credits for more information about the products and events that are featured in the look/scene.

Onto the next conversation…

HAIR⊱ BURLEY – Xander – Fatpack @ Taketomi ClubNEW

I’m sure you are asking “What is Taketomi Club?” This is where I tell you! It is a new in-world group (joining fees apply but at the moment it is incredibly cheap) where both Taketomi and Burley release new items every two weeks for the price of 50L for a FATPACK. That’s right you can get an entire set of hair for almost nothing. However after the two weeks the price of the current hair release will go up to 450L (which is still quite affordable). This is a really great opportunity for hair enthusiasts to be able to get entire packs of hair.

The “Xander” hair that I’m wearing in this current look comes with a mirror HUD so that you can wear the hair on either side of your head and also all the color HUDs to suit your desires. It’s too good of a deal to pass up so I encourage you to take the taxi provided here and become a part of a something extraordinary.

HEADLeLutka – Andrea v 3.1

EYEBROWS⊱ [bellvi] Basic Brows #1 ♯ Marketplace

EYES⊱ MESANGE – Anjali Eyes – BEAUTY PACK @ We Love RPNEW

The latest round of We Love RP once again has a new eye release from MESANGE which is full of vibrant colors (15 in all) to choose from. The value of a whole pack of eyes as far as a photographer such as myself is always a good thing because it offers a different look multiple times. The package comes with mesh eyes with HUD as well as an Omega Applier HUD for eyes that are compatible with the system (CATWA, LeLutka, etc…)

FACEStray Dog – Cody T2

BEARD*Drot* Scruffy Beard

BODYBelleza – Jake

PANTSYACK – LAZARO

TREE<Heart Homes> “The Christmas Express” Tree ♯ NEW

Part of the centerpiece for this scene…because what is Christmas without a tree? This tree comes in several versions (Regular, FAMILY, and Adult for those who really want to be naughty) and is very detailed and would look great in just about any home setting. Taking the taxi to the store will give you the option to test all the versions of the tree to see which best fits your individual needs.

IE – Naughty List 4 (b) @ The Naughty ListNEW

The primary item that started the whole process of making this scene happen. The package comes with two versions of the pose (a simple static pose as well as a rezzable poseball version which is what I used). The best part about it that it includes the Santa Hat that I am wearing to accessorize and truly be the bringer of the jolly. I really got a kick out of this pose and look forward to working with the other male pose in the next little while.

[#397] Then Say No More…

I’ve been building scars up
Putting flames out with my fingers
Tell me when my times up
So my hope no longer lingers

This Is The Sound” – The ExiesListen

Sometimes when you become inspired by fashion or even a pose set and you are eager to get right into it you hope that when you finish the final result meets whatever expectation is in your head. I feel like with this particular session that it turned out as I expected and more. I really truly honestly love the raw emotion that flowed through when I put this together. You may even agree with me that it could be one of my best offerings in a while. Everything I used made this come together just as I had hoped it would.

Even though I haven’t put these items in the full credits I wanted to give honorable mention to the little items that helped make up the scene for this photo shoot. The round table I used is the “Barrel Table Redwood” by Trompe Loeil, the ashtray is a part of the “Lyla” bar set from [Fetch], the bottles are from a set by {Theosophy} which is no longer available, the store sadly is no more. Lastly the lighter is a part of a pose set called “Blow Smoke” by WetCat Poses. All of these items set the tone for what I was looking for as part of the theme. As I said it does have a bit of raw emotion to it and we’ve all at one point in time or another have felt like pain helps take away other issues surrounding us and some display it differently and in harmful ways which I do not condone, I’ll just put that out there.

This entry features items from The Men’s Department, the newest round of Man Cave, and also On9. Each one of those events are full of great finds, buys, and things that you may find hard to pass up. I will leave you with the credits and maybe catch you out and about, you just never know. Until next time, as always stay stylish fellas!

HAIRMithral * Cashew (Variety)

This item was one I picked up at Hair Fair this year but didn’t have the exactly look or idea for it until now. I’ll be honest that it is a hair that was created with females in mind but with minimal effort, I made it work for me or any other fella that wants a longer hair and is not a fan of any out there on the market. I purchased the variety pack as sometimes I do like to switch things up so it made it the most logical for me in deciding on the purchase.

HEADCATWA – Shaheen (Bento)
EYES⊱ MESANGE – Skye Eyes @ On9NEW

Another set of vibrant eyes from MESANGE that come in 15 different iris colors via an Omega enabled HUD or by mesh eyes themselves. You can get these at the current round of On9. Thank you to MESANGE for being a sponsor of this little corner of the interwebs.

FACE⊱ Stray Dog – Marvin – TONE 02 @ TMDNEW

I’m finally wearing a new skin from Stray Dog that fits my style. Marvin is actually styled for a red headed avatar but you can wear it without brows or freckles and do your own thing, which is what I’ve done here. I really like this look even though in this scene I tend to look a bit on the angry side. This product is a Catwa applier and comes in three different tones; it also comes with a brow and body shape to use.

MOUSTACHEKauna – Bento Moustache: Shape A
FACEKauna – Bento Beard: Shape A
BODYBelleza – Jake

SHIRT⊱ TonkTastic – Cotton Tee @ MAN CAVENEW

TonkTastic is a brand that has been around a long time, I remember one of my first pairs of combat boots were made by this store. They are still very relevant today and have just done a collaboration with Hermony to bring us this really awesome shirt. There are four different packs to purchase which come with a HUD that you can combine each of the shirt designs which allows you to have an abundance of choices. Sizes included are Aesthetic, Belleza, Classic Avis, Signature, SLink, and TMP. This is really a great everyday shirt to do just about whatever you want in.

JEANS⊱ Lenox Disruptor Jeans @ TMDNEW

I am a jeans and t-shirt guy for the most part because when I’m not really doing a shoot or having to wear fancier clothing I just like to relax and look comfortable as I would in the real world. So I needed to find a pair that would go well with the shirt I had in mind. I realized I had picked these up at TMD and hadn’t found an outfit to match them with so it was naturally a good fit. These jeans have built in boxers (which you can change from 6 different designs or remove them with the included HUD). There are 9 denim colors to choose from as well and come fitted for avatars that own Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature, SLink, or TMP bodies. There is also an option for a bootcut version for the boot wearing crowd.

SHOES[VALE KOER] LIFTOFF TRAINERS

RING⊱ [DF] Keyboard Ring ♯ Marketplace

I am a fan of jewelry of all types in the real world and I’ve been trying to figure out ways to bring that into the virtual one. I was looking around on the marketplace and happened upon this ring. Being the fan of music that I am as well, the piano keys spoke to me and I knew I just had to have it. I really like the promise that bento rings have and how they actually move with your fingers in poses and AOs which they did not do before bento.

RINGS⊱ Ysoral – Luxe Set Rings Luc ♯ Marketplace

This set of rings caught my eye as well as I was browsing and the options available really made it worth taking the time to make the purchase. There are plenty of metal colors and for the rings with gems on them, there are options of many colors as well. The package includes a set for each hand and through the HUD you can even hide the rings you do not want to wear if you are feeling specific. I really hope Ysoral continues to make cool rings because I will return to their shop in the future.

SKYBOX⊱ *Drot* Apt Zero @ MAN CAVENEW

Drot has mostly been associated with being a creator of hair and other accessories but they’ve gotten into the build game and have been releasing prefabs and skybox’s such as “Apt Zero” for the Man Cave event. I really loved the old abandoned look of this. It had that dark effect that I wanted to utilize as well. Major kudos to Drot for putting out a really cool skybox seting.


FOXCITY – Mens Just Psycho (Fatpack Exclusive/6) @ On9NEW

This was the center piece of this photo/look/blog. When I first saw the advertisement for this it caught my eye. It gave me the chills a little bit because of all the unhinged type of things I could create with it. While you can buy each pose separate why would you when you get the exclusive pose with the Fatpack. I remember at one time watching a movie where someone was putting a knife between their fingers really fast while drinking to see if they would make a mistake and put the knife in their hand; this pose replicates that image. I am sure a lot of interesting pictures can be created with this set and there is also a female version as well to purchase.

post381_01post381_02

It’s time for another new look from yours truly! I’ve visited some of the best shopping destinations and stores to bring you some great items along with another visual that was done with passion. Yes, the theme of this could be interpreted as a bit moody but I think it has a good place and a message that many things can heal wounds and emotional distress.

Last month DROT re-released a collaborative with C.A.M.O. and it was first available at Men Only Monthly, this was the first opportunity that I’ve had where it fit into a look I was trying to put together. The “Fisherman’s Beanie” is a hat with built in hair that you might find a fella wearing it that works on the docks. It comes with not only with a HUD to change the color of hair you’ve purchased but also one to change the color of hat you wish to wear. It works well with just about any hairbase, I’m just using the one that came with the No. Project’s “Nuel” skin because it is Catwa compatible and it is easy to take on and off, making it very versatile.

Also from DROT is the “Tintable Mesh Beard” that is up for sale at the Signature Event until the end of the month. This beard is re-sizable via script and can bed colored to your desired tone by editing it with your build/edit objects tool. Considering that I wear my Catwa head a majority of the time and feeling that this beard would fit better on a Signature head, all things considered it works out pretty well with a little finessing. If you are a fella that is into thick and bushy facial hair then you’ve got a great product here.

ManCave is a new event that just started that is guy-centric and features clothing, skins, furniture and accessories all for the discerning male. I found a pretty good amount of things from this event so it tells me that it is off to a good start and I’m looking forward to seeing this progress into a great place for us men to visit each month.

{Cold-Ash} is at it again with a seasonal upgrade to it’s “MONTANA” tee. There are three new design types that you can grab to step out in casual style this summer. Consisting of striped, dotted, and marl patterns, “MONTANA” is sure to keep you looking great in any casual setting or just lounging around at home. This re-release comes with fits for the leading male mesh bodies (BELLEZA, SIGNATURE, SLINK, and TMP) and you can get each of these patterns all in one as a FATPACK. Thank you to {Cold-Ash} for providing a review copy to their bloggers, as a long time fan, shirts like this are the type I like to just about live in on a daily basis.

It’s been a while I brought the SLink Physique body out but for this look I did it with a good reason. It helped make my look fit just right as the jeans I am wearing did not have a GIanni option to them and I liked them so much I wanted to feature them. At The Men’s Department this round, Razor has released the “Denim Jeans w/ Studded Belt”. It was even hard trying to pick out the style of denim but in the end the “Stonewash” won out. Besides the studded belt, the other feature that I like best about these jeans is that they have a back pocket with a wallet and chain attached. I can’t quite say why but this kind of style has fascinated me for a long time. This particular jeans look like they’ve been put through the ringer and could be the wearer’s favorite go to pair of jeans.

You can also find the Semller “Two-Plat Sneakers) at TMD. These comfortable kicks have a great feature where you can choose the width of the sole of the shoe which you don’t generally see in footwear on the grid. Normally you get one or the other but with the included HUD you can change them whenever the mood strikes. Just like usual, I’ve purchased the FATPACK of these shoes so I can maximize the potential of styles available.

MESANGE has also been gracious enough to send a review copy of their “Kitej Eyes” which are for sale at The Chapter Four event. Fifteen different iris tones await those who are looking for something different and exciting for their eyes, which are omega applier compatible as well as the included standard mesh eyes. What I like most about this brand is that is is never the “same old same” you often find with eye makers. The brand truly gives something different and refreshing with every release.

Very rarely do I find jewelry that I like and want to feature but for this look it is a little different. FLI. recently released the “Nolex Ring” at their mainstore location; this ring comes in three metal tones (Gold, Platinum, and Rose Gold). This ring has a design similar to a watch ring but instead of having a timepiece on top it has a multitude of diamonds set in. It has a bit of flash but I don’t feel it is overly done to where it draws attention away from the rest of the outfit.

I encourage you to take a look below at the full styling credits and take a trip to the stores and events featured in this entry. Before making a purchase you should always try demos to ensure your total satisfaction. I look forward to bringing you another new style very soon and as always, stay stylish fellas!

[#352] Them Bones

Dust rise right on over my time
Empty fossil of the new scene

Them Bones” –  Alice In Chains  ♫Listen

Skin Fair will be closing in just a few days so I thought I would sneak in at least one more look from the great event in hopes to get you to check it out (if you haven’t already that is.) Also you’ll find in this entry new items from the recently re-opened Men Only Monthly. Let’s get into those details!

I remember when I was really big into wearing my LOGO head a skin creator called “Bold & Beauty” but they had only made items for CATWA heads. As much as I liked them I just couldn’t seem to pull myself away to give it a try. Fast track to some time later and I’m enjoying my CATWA Bento head, Bold & Beauty released the “Keith” skin at the Skin Fair. I liked how it looked in the advertisement so I decided to give it a go. Making sure that I got the appliers for the [SIGNATURE] Gianni body, I went with T2 because I thought T1 was too light and T3 was too tan for the type of look I normally wear. It comes included with a Bento shape to make it look the best that it possibly can and I didn’t use a different for this particular look, but in the end I was very happy with how it turned out in combination with the other items I’ll be telling you about.

Men Only Monthly as I mentioned before is back…and back with a vengeance. I managed to find so many great things there that I actually included several of them here in this look. It just goes to show you that it is one of the top events for us fellas out there besides The Men’s Department. It goes to show you that without places like this for us to go, it would be a little more difficult for us to continually find fresh things and new creators as well as products.

Drot has a new hair to offer at M.O.M, which is called “Tobi”. I comes with a demo of a beanie but you are more than welcome to try any that you might think work that are already in your inventory. I personally did not so I used that one and my only disappointment in it is that it was not color change. The hair if you wished to could be one that standalone but it seems a beanie hat tends to make it a little cooler looking and a little more of an edgier look. There are are several color packs for you to choose from or you can get all of them (like I did) for a multitude of choices. I found it hard though that Drot only included hairbases for the standard tattoo layer and TMP head choices and not Omega or Catwa. I do hope they consider doing this in the future to optimize their products look.

The facial hair that I am wearing is a new creation from Diego Wolves (Dodo Rage) of U-Body fame. He’s created the v1 beard which you get a HUD that allows you to choose between three thickness levels as well as either an all black or tintable color choice as well as appliers for CATWA/Omega and also Standard avatars. Knowing that Diego can create items besides great shapes and still have them be as fantastic makes him a truly versatile creator. I look forward to seeing more from him in the future.

Speaking of versatile, Cerebus Xing, makers of items from mechanical tails and sharp talon nails, and various other items have created a clothing release for Men Only Monthly. They have a group of various graphic tanktops available for purchase and I chose to feature the “Necro Jams” version. It comes with a skeleton graphic on it and comes in Black, Gray, and White colors and sizes included in the package are: [SIGNATURE] Gianni and TMP mesh bodies.

Another round of Cosmopolitan is almost in the books and just in time I was able to feature the AGATA “Bob” Pants. It has a choice of 6 different colors (which of course you can get in a FatPack) and is sized to fit the [SIGNATURE] Gianni body only. I chose the Gray/Charcoal color to match the White tanktop that I am wearing.

I’ve got an item from The Men’s Department also in this look in the form of the “LOLITOV” Sneakers from [ VERSOV ]. I really like this brand they seem to always have a great variety of footwear that are usually containing the type of size I need for whatever I am wearing. The pair I have on here are the BLACK+GUM which are kind of reminiscent of old school sneakers with an untied look. Sizes included are Belleza, Maitreya, SLink, and TMP (for the gals) and Gianni, SLink, and TMP (for the fellas) along with unrigged versions for Standard avatars.

I thought I would just pass along that [SIGNATURE] has just released update 3.4 of their GIANNI body. You may wonder what the big deal is about this and you know that I’m going to tell you. They have managed to make the hands Bento compatible so for those of you who did not go out and grab the Vista Animations hands, you’ll now be able to use Bento enabled poses without having to worry.

Last thing I’d like to give a brief mention to are my two prop helpers, Skeleton Lamp, and Happy Skeleton. Skeleton Lamp is a product of BackBone which makes all sorts of cool gizmos, props, and such. Happy Skeleton was a great find a few weeks ago during Fifty Linden Friday at CURELESS. I would still buy it if it wasn’t 50 lindens but it made the decision quicker and more painless. Both of these items are well made and worth giving a look or their stores a look. That’s my advice for this installment.

I look forward to bringing you more great items next time, until then you know the drill, stay stylish fellas!

[#340] I’m Coming To Terms…

I’m starting to learn
This ain’t all it’s cracked up to be
‘Cause I’m using you
and you’re using me
It’s never as easy as we believe

I hope everyone had a great weekend, yeah I know it’s already Tuesday but it still isn’t past the point where you can think about the previous weekend…at least in my mind anyway.

For this current entry I thought I’d do a little relaxing with some light reading and a beverage. And I achieved just that with a little help from Image Essentials and their pose/prop that is exclusively at The Hipster Fair right now. The “Coffee Sophisticate” comes with a chair prop and also comes with a cup of coffee and a magazine that you can wear while in the pose; I also think that is well made and while you can adjust the pose, it was perfect right out of the box for me.

Modulus also has a new release at their mainstore that is worth checking out. “Damien” comes with beard and eyebrow styles together or individually. You can also use your own favorite eyebrow appliers and beards if you want to. You can choose from 5 different skin tones as well to find which one best suits you.

One of my most favorite eye creators, MESANGE, has a new set that is currently for sale at the APPLIQUE event. The “Capriccio Eyes” are very stunning and come in 15 different iris colors. If you’re not familiar with this brand from my previous entries, each single pack comes with a standard pair of eyes, a mesh pair, and also a HUD to change both the mesh set and also omega appliers for those who have those type of eyes. If you purchase the full set, the HUD also includes appliers for Genesis Lab eyes.

I have more new items from events coming up in the entries ahead so I will leave you with some taxi’s/limo’s whatever you choose to call them to pick up any of the items you see that I’m wearing or posing with. Also if you want a cool place to visit and relax, check out “Nouvelles Adventures” which you can find a ride to below.

Until next time, stay stylish fellas!
