[#463] When The Man Comes Around

Hear the trumpets, hear the pipers.
One hundred million angels singin’.
Multitudes are marchin’ to the big kettle drum.
Voices callin’, voices cryin’.
Some are born and some are dyin’.
It’s Alpha and Omega’s Kingdom come.

The Man Comes Around♫ – Johnny Cash

For some reason for the second straight blog entry I came up with a darker lit post. Though the previous one wasn’t really dark as a theme, the way it was shot was in darker lighting. This time my story shot came out darker because it seemed appropriate for what I chose as the soundtrack. This is the first time I believe that I have used a song by Johnny Cash and it’s about time. I didn’t come into being a fan of his work until a bit later in life but I am grateful that I was able to know about him.

“The Man Comes Around” seems to me a song about end times and the rapture in the way the lyrics are written and structured and I found it very interesting and wondered how I could apply it to a shot full with fashion that would co-exist along with it; as I look at the overall feel of the visual it didn’t turn out too badly.


The way I visioned this post with some of the interpretation of the lyrics is that death has been sent to collect souls as a part of the end of the world. So the main story shot you see above is my thought of what death could possibly look like as he’s roaming the earth to complete his job. I knew I wanted to shoot the photo in a place that had dead looking trees to kind of fit in as well with it.

As I said the photo came out a little darker than I anticipated but I like how it feels; the only downside is you don’t see the details of the hair I am wearing as well. Which is why in the next pic you’ll see below three different angles (some with better detailing than this one). The hair I am wearing definitely reminded me a bit of Johnny Cash and what might be worn when he was in his prime. Modulus released the “Aaron” hair as their very first release being a part of the Colabor88 Event which I was excited to hear about.

“Aaron” comes with 25 different colors (a Modulus standard) and you can get them in 5 different color packs (or treat yourself to the FATPACK if you are undecided). What’s great is that each individual color pack has 5 colors but also comes with a color tint portion of the HUD where you can give a style a little extra color and come up with your own style that might not be included. This is definitely a rocker style hair that I think is going to be a hit at the event.


This also happens to be my second Skin Fair 2018 post and you are all getting a double dose of Modulus as I am wearing one of three new skins that you can pick up at the event. This handsome devil is “Graham” and he comes in 6 different tones (Caramel, Chestnut, Fair, Latte, Rose and Sand respectfully alphabetized). You can pick up the body appliers at the fair or at the main store which I’ll be hailing a cab for you down in the credits below for you to take when you are ready.

I’d like to also mention that this is a CATWA applier and made for the Victor head but if you feel adventurous as I sometimes do you can try it on any of CATWA’s other products (including the new Skell head that I’ll be covering soon!). Brow and Body Shapes are provided to help you look your best as was intended.

For my outfit (which you can’t do a song by Johnny Cash without wearing black right?) I am wearing the “Interus” suit in black from E-Clipse Designs. With the setting being a little dark, I did my best to show the details of this suit which are separated by top and bottom (and not one whole mesh). The suit comes fit for Belleza, Signature (Gianni) and SLink male mesh bodies.

Chat Noir has a new set of poses out for sale at the freshly open March round of The Men’s Jail. Pose set 1765 has 6 new poses (along with mirrors for each one) to help you capture that exact look you want to convey to your audience as a blogger or photographer. Take a trip to The Men’s Jail and give these poses a better look as well as other clothing, accessories and poses avialable.

This is definitely a look that would make “The Man In Black” himself proud I think.

Normally I do post more pics but for this entry I felt the two were enough so I could continue working on getting more Skin Fair posts cooking so that you can all see what some of my favorite brands are up to and check them out for yourself. I have more coming from TMD, as well as the Man Cave which is just opening today and perhaps more from The Men’s Jail as well.

Time for me to wrap this one up but I’ll be back again soon with more great things to shop for from stores and events that we all know and love.

Onto the next conversation…

[#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!

[#326] No Mercy

post326_01 post326_02

The December round of Men Only Monthly ends tonight (for those of you reading this after Jan 15th). I managed to put together one more look to close it out and give you the opportunity to go on a mad dash for a last minute shopping run.

I’ve also included an item from The Men’s Dept in the form of the DOUX “Uncombed” hair. Once again which it is not a surprise I picked up the Full Pack of colors which there are quite a lot to choose from and even a few surprises in the Pastels and Ombre’s HUD (Blonde with Gray, which you don’t see often). Though for this I chose a basic black color out of the Naturals HUD. I like the messy tousled look, kind of like you might have just woken up from an extremely long night and barely slept a wink.

For my eyes, I’ve gone back to the Avi-Glam “Entice” eyes and picked out an unusual color in red to kind of bring out the devious side. There are plenty of great colors in this pack to choose from as I’ve showcased them before. They come with standard eyes but also mesh ones with a HUD or if you have one of the eye systems that utilize the Omega appliers, it has a HUD for that as well. You also get your choice of small, medium, or large pupil sizes.

Now for the Men Only Monthly items, it’s an outfit that works in conjunction with one another but is sold separately. It is both the Diesel Jacket and Pants. Sometimes I am not the biggest fan of jackets with shirts that with open buttons but I think this kinda gives a look of being charming and sexy at the same time. I chose the wine colored jacket to go with the overall vibe of my photo shoot. It comes with a HUD that gives you the option to change the color of the shirt portion of the item. There are five colors to choose from.

The Diesel Pants have a suave leather look that doesn’t make you look like you have stepped out of the 80’s and were the front of a hair metal band. I find that I am really a fan of these but I had to go with my usual black but the two different tones of brown, and gray that are also available made it hard to choose.

Both of these items have a TMP, SLink, and [SIGNATURE] Gianni body fit. Sorry for those of you that use a standard avatar, there are no standard sizes included.

I kept it simple for you all today so you can go catch the last remaining hours of Men Only Monthly and enjoy the great items included in today’s look and all of the other Mantastic things available for sale…so until the next time, keep it stylish fellas! Onto the good stuff… CREDITS!
