[#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!

[#345] You Got Caught In The Sun

What if I missed you
you got caught in the sun
What if I did something
never to be undone?

Caught In The Sun” –  Course Of Nature  ♫Listen

While I’m patiently waiting for nicer weather to return in the real world, I thought I might warm up my spirits and some of yours (those of you who live in cooler climates). I decided to take a trip to one of my favorite beach type sims, “Baja Norte” and catch a few rays. It was the perfect reason to pull out one of my finds from the Signature Event which is still running until the 13th of March. Time for some details about this little fun in the sun expedition.

As I said before, I was at the Signature Event where I picked up Exalted’s “Swim Trunks” I chose the v7 version because it seemed nice and tropical and would go well with being out on the water. Being that this item is being featured at the Signature Event, it only has a size for the [SIGNATURE] Gianni body. The fit is nice and you only have to hit a couple ticks on your alpha HUD and everything is perfect.

Being that this is the only new item that is an item of clothing I am wearing the “Bane” tattoo from ARISE that is now at The Chapter Four. It features an iconic leg sleeve featuring some of the best comic villians you can find. It has regular standard tattoo layers, Omega appliers, and a TMP installer for those of you with that style of mesh body.

I am also wearing a more recent release from FACADE called “Cruel Beauty” that was originally at the Love Interruption event on the Depraved shopping sim.

MESANGE has another great set of eyes for you that have just been released at this month’s round of We ❤ RP. The “Bering Eyes” come in 15 different iris colors and have the standard mesh eyes and also appliers for Omega enabled eyes. I thought that a bluish tone would fit well with this theme as well and the water would bring out the best in them.

For hair I went back and decided to give another look at the “Mose” hair by +elua+. I thought it fit perfect with the beach/surfer look that I had envisioned in my head and I think it fit particularly well for it. Also apart of my features that I did not credit due to unavailability is the -Valiant- “Stango” beard and hairbase. I’m hoping that the creator puts their Hair Fair ’16 releases out at their store but being that is primarily furniture and decoration items the chance is very slim which is a shame for those of you fellas that missed out on it and would like to still get it.

I am proud to announce that one of my sponsors, Reach Shapes, has released their Grayson shape. It is made for Catwa “Daniel” Bento heads and looks best with the [Bay Harbor] “Matt” Skin which you’ll find a link for down in the credits.

Time to go get back and finish up catching some sick waves before it’s time to head off on another adventure. Get ready for a wave of Skin Fair ’17 exclusives coming your way. I’m looking forward to giving you a look at them.

As always until the next time, stay stylish fellas!

[#338] Just Look At All That Pain

So fake your death
or it’s your blame
And leave the lights on
when you stay
Take off your clothes
and dream that fame
Come on and feel that shame

Fake Your Death” –  My Chemical Romance  ♫Listen

post338_01 post338_02

It seems almost like a lifetime ago that My Chemical Romance announced they were calling it a day as a band. I’d like to say that I consider myself a fan and anytime I get the opportunity to pay homage to a musician or group I jump at it. It seems that a lot of the products in this installment just called out begging to be put together. Let me give you a little insight.

It started out at FaMESHed where I saw the “Napolean” Jacket by Aitui. This was something that easily reminded me of the “Black Parade” era for MCR and one that was probably my overall favorite. Without hesitation I grabbed it to start the ball rolling on putting this look and photo shoot together. The jacket comes in sizes for [SIGNATURE] Gianni, SLink Physique, and TMP. There are also many other color choices/combinations to choose from and all you have to do is take the taxi down in the credits to check them out.

My next step was to find a hair to match the jacket with the idea I had in mind. That’s when I went to The Men’s Department and found the “Micah” hair from +elua+. It’s a nice short little style that works absolutely great for what I wanted to achieve. It chose to buy the fatpack but used the “Blacks” HUD to find the white color hair that was worn by the frontman of the band, Gerard Way.

Modulus just released the “Griff” and I chose to wear the cream tone as it was the lightest available from the brand. I really like how it looks, strong yet brooding which is the mood that I was looking for. It is available now at their mainstore, I encourage you to check it out or any of their other new skin releases.

The final touches came from items I already had in my closet. The MGmen’s Sven pants were originally at one of the previous rounds of the [SIGNATURE] event. They were the kind of trouser that I knew would fit exactly what I wanted exactly. Lastly I threw on the “Innsbruck” shoes from A&D. I feel like these are ones that I can use because they are versatile as they are a combination of both dressy and casual.

The “Soft Caress” poses recently released by Image Essentials for the Designer’s Showcase had one in particular that I thought was very useful for the feel I was going for with the theme. You might say that it is a pose set that would best be suited for the gals but I made a way to make it work for me as could any gentleman that needs an intricate close-up photo.

It’s time for me to get to work on my next adventure so grab your wallets and take a stroll to these stores and events and find some great items even if they are not ones featured here today. Happy shopping and as always, stay stylish fellas!
