[#631] The Rains of Castamere

 

And so he spoke, and so he spoke
That lord of Castamere
But now the rains weep o’er his hall
With no one there to hear
Yes, now the rains weep o’er his hall
And not a soul to hear

Ramin Dijwadi feat. The National, ♫The Rains of Castamere♫

 

Tomorrow marks the end of an era as HBO will air it’s finale Episode of “Game of Thrones”. Many of my friends and colleagues were huge fans of the show and tried for a long time for me to watch it but at the time I was engrossed in something else. It wasn’t til very recently that I broke down at the behest of my Brenna and also Lucky that I told them I would make sure to catch up so that I could watch the final episode the night it aired. I’m very close to achieving that goal and have been consumed by it; watching it feverishly. Now knowing what everyone else knows that are fans of this show…that it is epic.

Everyone has a favorite character whether it be Dany or Jon (who are probably the main two that people are fans of) but the one person that’s stood out to me with great writing and even better acting by Peter Dinklage, is Tyrion Lannister. The character comes from a house full of really bad people and while he’s not necessarily clean himself, he’s proven to me at least that he has the most heart and he thinks very hard before he acts. The world he comes from looks down on him for being a dwarf and with everything set against him has come along way from where he started.

I’m not sure how the story will end which is the fun and scary part about any show so I will be waiting along with everyone else to see exactly how it all plays out.

I was certainly worried about how well poses would work after shaping myself like a dwarf but luckily with the cool “DYLN” pose set by DAE, which is available right now at Pose Fair, it all worked out very nicely. DAE is a store that can be filed under the stores that I’m not as familiar with but I have heard of them before, I just have never really utilized them until now. With covering all the different stores for my coverage of the Fair, I usually try to choose several that are not sponsors or stores I see in every day conversations.

The actual pose from the set that I chose looked and felt to me like something Tyrion himself might do on the show and wouldn’t essentially be breaking character as essentially when we do scenes that are homages to something we try to keep it as true to the source as possible. When the idea came to me I was pretty excited.

DAE – DYLN Pose Set

  • Bento static poses
  • 6 poses to choose from
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair until 05/25/19

Image Essentials provided the backdrop that makes up 3/4 of the scene outside of the torches from Aisling and myself. While it is harder to show features of something like a prop, I can give you the pertinent info that is necessary. It’s an original mesh item that can be resized by a menu that comes up when clicked in case you want to make it monstrous.

That brings me to what I’m wearing and it’s definitely a mix of things and much like the last post I did (even though it was female items) it’s comprised of mostly gacha items and one new event item which happened to coincide nicely as far as timing went to do this post. Many creators lately have been doing items that were inspired by the show and even the Enchantment event is fully dedicated with their current round currently titled “The Iron Throne”.

Hotdog has made the tunic I am wearing that is a part of Enchantment; it’s called the “Casterly Rock Tunic” and it’s very nice. There are two versions to it (I bought the leather version as it suited me better than the noble version). It comes with a HUD that allows you to change the outer part of the tunic as well as the inside part as well. It’s not fitted for a specific body so with the right alpha cuts it should work with the main bodies currently out there (save for maybe Aesthetic but for those of you guys with that at least check the demo!)

The pants and boots come from the “Fire and Ice” gacha set by RIOT which was a part of The Epiphany April round. It is likely now in their main store and has sizes for both Belleza (Jake) and Signature (Gianni). The entire set for the males is truly super cool and for fans of the show it’s very accurate with touches that any enthusiast will notice.

There have been a lot of photos I’ve seen that have been GoT themed and many of them are awesome, I hope that those of you who do see this post will think that I captured the essence of it. One thing I know is that it was a lot of fun putting together and will likely do more themed from the show even after it ends as I have a lot of making up for that as well.

Just because the show is ending doesn’t mean a fans love for it will.

[#615] We’ll Carry On!

 

Do or die, you’ll never make me
Because the world will never take my heart
Go and try, you’ll never break me
We want it all, we wanna play this part
I won’t explain or say I’m sorry
I’m unashamed, I’m gonna show my scar
Give a cheer for all the broken
Listen here, because it’s who we are
I’m just a man, I’m not a hero
Just a boy, who had to sing this song
I’m just a man, I’m not a hero
I
Don’t
Care!

My Chemical Romance, ♫Welcome To The Black Parade♫

 

It’s the end of March and coincidentally it is also the anniversary of when I posted “When The Saints Come Marching In” on “The Saints Of Fashion{ation}” blog 5 years ago. After 100 posts I felt that my creativity and identity began to mold and change into something else and in turn spawned the site that you are viewing now. It was a branding change I thought would best be done early because once I really took off (though I still feel that I haven’t) that it would be harder to do.

Befitting as it is, to choose a song that has so many different meanings to me…it could easily be said that like My Chemical Romance, this site could be considered emo. It’s not a term I’m in love with as it almost feels derogatory in context to describe music and musicians that express what they feel in a much deeper manner. As a blogger sometimes my scenes can be deeply personal or come from a source close to me (of which I’d never disclose). “The Black Parade” album definitely had an impact on not only me as a young adult but many in their mid to late teens.

It’s relatable in an unconventional way.

For longer than I can remember I’ve wanted to do a scene inspired by “Welcome To The Black Parade” as it’s a song I feel evokes a lot of emotion. The thing that was holding me back was that the style of clothing I wanted to make this work had not been available. My vision was to make this as accurate as possible but deep down I knew that I wouldn’t find clothing that was accurate to the band’s. The closest thing at the time was the dress by CUREMORE and this almost became a blog entry that was done as a female feature but ultimately I wanted to be myself in it as well in the worst way.

Then surprisingly the other day I was browsing Flickr and saw the “Military Tailcoat” by HotDog, which had not been released at the time but was coming to latest round of NEO Japan. The event opened yesterday and I didn’t walk, I ran to the event (metaphorically speaking) and it was the first thing I bought. The event has a lot of great items but this was the one thing I truly needed to finally put my look together and be able to create a visual for it.

My brother Lucky had a set on his land that he put together for anyone to use, so I jumped at the opportunity. I’m going to say that at first when I started taking pictures I was not happy with the results I was getting and sadly almost gave up on the idea. I’m not a big fan of doing re-shoots but I was determined not to let this go so to make this work I added the hearse and changed up the poses from what I had originally; I also tweaked the lighting and some settings in Black Dragon to get where I wanted to be.

Also you’ll notice there are two people in this blog but there actually aren’t, both of them are me and to preserve the magic of the photo I’m not going to divulge the way in which I was able to get this to work. Working this how I did really made the photo special and possibly one of my favorites of my most recent work. There are other things that I probably could have done with it but I’m satisfied with these results so I am not going to give any further thought to it.

If you like the look of HotDog’s “Military Tailcoat” I would definitely implore you to visit NEO Japan and see all the outstanding stores and products available. You certainly will not regret it and I can also tell you that you’ll see more from the event on this blog before the end of the event.

HotDog – Military Tailcoat

  • Original mesh
  • 6 color changeable parts via HUD
  • Fits most major mesh bodies (Female version included)
  • Exclusive to NEO Japan until 04/21/19

Closing out this entry, I’m still very much in disbelief that 5 years has gone by and I am still doing this crazy thing. Blogging is a great outlet and a fantastic release to help deal with emotional things at times to also challenge myself creatively to see what I can do with the various parts and pieces provided to me by the Second Life grid and community. Like everything it’s had it’s ups and downs and has also chronicled different times in my life and looking at it now I know that all of it continues to shape who I am as a person.

If there is anyone out there who has been a reader since the beginning that I’ve not spoken to, you have my sincere gratitude. Over time I’ve said this and it’s worth repeating again that while I am the founder and author of this blog, when I hear from friends or family and even the random message or like on social media it validates what I do here. This blog also serves the owners of the stores I blog for or the events that I am a part of as well as those I just love to show my appreciation for.

On that note, it’s time for me to get this posted up and begin working on the next photo so I can start getting back into a routine. I’ve been a little lax as of late since the Skin Fair but that’s going to change (I hope). Anyhow hope everyone’s had a great weekend and until I’m back with some fun new (and not so new sometimes) items I’ll catch you on the flipside!

[#427] Swing Life Away

I’ve been here so long, I think that it’s time to move
The winter’s so cold, summer’s over too soon
Let’s pack our bags and settle down where palm trees grow

Swing Life Away♫ – Rise Against

It’s not very often that I actually shoot any scenes from my own house but I didn’t really feel like using a backdrop or finding a location to set up in so I came up with an idea that allowed me to stay where I was at. I enjoyed how I was able to combine good ambience with lighting and of course my instant go to LUMIPro. Personally I feel like this is a small victory because it was fun to come up with and it was not stressful to put together.


When I first started putting this together, I didn’t have a song that was an inspiration as often times I do before going into setting up a scene. As I was thinking about various genre’s of music I knew I wanted something laid back; I almost automatically recalled “Swing Life Away”. It had the right feel and helped me with getting the best visual with the look and poses I combined.


As I was taking photos from different angles from close and further away, I found myself liking a majority of them so for this entry I added an extra shot I found favorable in addition to my main “storytelling” shot and the usual two featured product close-ups.


Brand partners that I am featuring in this entry’s look consist of Avi-Glam (eyes) and Image Essentials (Poses). I managed to go out and do a little shopping outside of the search for bargains during the Black Friday events and checked out a new event called District 23 (not to be confused with the District 20 event that I have intentions of covering) as well as another stop to The Men’s Department.


Now that you’ve had the chance to look at what I’ve put into this look, I’ll leave you with the style credits (which are as complete as they possibly can). I believe these stores and events have something for just about every fella out there and even some of the gals as well. Enjoy your next shopping excursion and remember to pick up demos before deciding on a purchase as there is nothing worse then buyer’s remorse (and I know we’ve all been there). Thanks for joining me for this adventure and I will see you again soon.

Onto the next conversation…

HAIR+elua+ Pippa Black Pack

During the course of my Black Friday shopping excursion I decided to see what +elua+ had going on as far as hairstyles considering I have not visited the shop in some time. I did not find anything in the regular hairstyles but I did see the gacha machine that this hair is from and played it to be able to get a black pack of this hair and with a little size adjusting it was perfect on my head. Personally I like having longer hair on my pixels during what I would consider the fall/winter season even though some places don’t really observe because it is unnecessary (we are pixels after all ha!)

HEADLeLutka – Andrea v 3.1

EYES⊱ AG. Hope Eyes – Aqua @ Shiny ShabbyNEW

Eyes are often the best feature on a person because when you look into someone’s eyes it has been said that you can look into their soul; this new set of eyes like previous Avi-Glam releases does not disappoint. 24 different iris colors (including the one you can see a close-up of in the product shot above) that come in 3 sizes. These are excellent for everyday wear and for those of you who may not be bloggers or photographers could easily be a great permanent eye to wear. Mesh eyes are included in the package and a FATPACK is also available.

COMPATIBLE With: CATWA, OMEGA, and regular (for included mesh eyes) applier HUDs.

FACEStray Dog – Cody T2
BODYBelleza – Jake

TATTOO⊱ { Speakeasy } Storm Tattoo @ District 23NEW

Very seldom do I wear or feature body ink as I’ve expressed before in previous entries but it’s not for lack of liking them. Most of the time it’s for the fact I wear products that would generally cover them up and would defeat the purpose of wearing them. When I was putting this current look together I saw an add for this tattoo and knew that I would not be wearing anything on the upper half of my body. The tattoo comes in three different opacity types (Fresh, Worn, and Faded) and you can get it at District 23 along with other types of ink and poses to enjoy.

COMPATIBLE With: Omega, Signature and TMP applier HUDs.

PANTS⊱ AITUI – Sweat Pants – Loyalty, Grey @ TMDNEW

Only a few more days left for the current round of TMD to get your hands on these sweatpants by AITUI. There are several different designs and colors available at the event but they are definitely great for just lazing around your dwelling while you are AFK or just relaxing doing nothing. I think these are really cool and very well made.

COMPATIBLE With: Belleza, Signature, SLink and TMP male bodies.

IE – Daily Things (b) (1 / 3) @ Designer CircleNEW

I really do enjoy taking poses that are not meant normally for males and putting them to work for me. This great set of poses (5 total with mirrors) also comes with two pose props (a phone and a magazine). The poses depict motions some of us make in our normal routines which is why to me the name of the set is appropriate. You can pick this up at the Designer Circle event which is open until the 2nd of December so there is still time…hurry!

[#417] When You’re On Easy Street

And we’re breaking out the good champagne
We’re sitting pretty on the gravy train
And when we sing every sweet refrain repeats…

Easy Street” – The Collapsable Hearts ClubListen

For my second Halloween post I thought I would bring some people back down memory lane (which may make them a bit terse) by choosing a theme that was a part of one of the most mind shattering moments of season 7 of The Walking Dead. The dreaded song that kept repeating over and over to torture and try to break Daryl Dixon. After the episode aired the song went viral and probably not for the better. So in my own crazy way I’m bringing it back to remind you!

While I probably should have saved the theme for an actual zombie apocalypse type scene, I just couldn’t pass up how quirky the song was for the feel I was putting together for this shoot. With a crazy murderous fowl on the loose, it certainly made a great combination in my mind.

For this session, I took a lot of different photos with various angles and lighting but what you are seeing on this blog entry are the best of the best after minor post-processing. I don’t usually try to overdo anything because then it completely changes the composition of what was originally intended.

Avi-Glam has kindly provided two different products (a skin and eyes) for me to feature and give my thoughts on. The entry also features many items from the current (and still open) TMD event which has about a week or so left before they close it off to begin switching things out for the next round.

This entry also features goods from Men Only Monthly and The Epiphany which has some really great Gacha machines to play with exclusive items to collect before they are gone for good once the round is over.

I hope you’ve enjoyed checking out my second submission for the Halloween 2017 series of photos. I still have more to come in the next few posts (including a collaboration that I am extremely excited about). Another adventure in the books and please be sure to check out the styling credits below. Get your shopping on and I’ll see you again soon.

Onto the next conversation…

HAIR+elua+ Quinn
HEADLeLutka – Andrea v 3.1
EYES⊱ AG. Natural Eyes @ Shiny ShabbyNEW

6 new eye colors are available for you to take a peak at during the newly opened round of Shiny Shabby. The applier HUD (and I’ll list compatibility here in a second) with some of the eyes gives you the option to choose which eye you wish to color or you can apply it to both eyes as well as what pupil size. Mixing and matching is possible which I think can be unique in many instances.

Compatible with: Catwa, LeLutka, and Omega (as well as included mesh eyeballs)

FACEAG. Noah Skin

This skin is for the LeLutka Andrea bento head. Noah has a youthful appearance with 8 skin tones to suit most people’s requirements. The applier HUD has 3 brow color options (along with a non-brow option). There is the option to buy an accompanied shape as well if you choose not to use your own.

BODYBelleza – Jake

SWEATER⊱ Lenox Wool Sweater @ TMDNEW

A very nicely detailed sweater which is something I’d definitely wear in the colder months as I am from a part of the US that tends to get some rather special weather during the winter months. Even though in the virtual world hot/cold doesn’t tend to factor, a lot of people treat their surroundings just like their own real locations. The cool thing about this sweater is you can wear it along with the coat that is also available at TMD this month.

Compatible with: Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature and TMP.

PANTS⊱ ::K:: Levi Jodhpurs Herringbone Tweed-Gray @ TMDNEW

Sometimes not featuring a product right away can be a good thing. I had not used these for anything right when I bought them at the opening of this months TMD. I received a message with an update from Kitt Ragu himself and we had a nice little conversation. It’s those kinds of things that will be a reason that I will continue purchasing and blogging ::K:: branded items. Kitt took the time to personally send out the update to those who purchased them. Such a class act!

These pants come with two types (one of them a shorter leg length for use with boots I am imagining) and also has a belt as well.

Compatible with: Belleza, Signature and SLink.

BOOTS::ROC:: Martens Boot! Mid

BACKDROPtaikou / gaien market backdrop

This backdrop scene is really a phenomenal build, with great details and textures. It was a part of the previous months round of Kustom9 and I purchased it towards the end of the round so I was not able to use it before they closed it to begin setting up for this month’s round. Personally I feel like it helped build the kind of gritty late night atmosphere or someone closing up shop for the night only to be met by a creepy presence.

JACKET⊱ COMPLEX / JACKET / W-B @ M.O.MNEW

This lightweight hooded parka comes in 6 different colors (worn in gray color). Two bonus colors are included in a fatpack that also has a HUD in which you can change the color of various parts of the jacket to your desired look.

Compatible with: Belleza, Signature and SLink male mesh bodies.

JEANS⊱ INVICTUS – Button Jeans – Jeans @ M.O.MNEW

Nicely made basic roll-up jeans that come in 6 denim colors (which the model is wearing the regular blue denim color). A fatpack is also available if you like all of the colors and want to get them at a discounted price.

Compatible with: Belleza, Signature, SLink, and TMP male mesh bodies. Also included is a regular fitmesh size for classic avatars.

SHOES-NOeditiON- SuperStar – Yellow

MASK⊱ *katat0nik* (yellow) Cockface Mask @ The EpiphanyNEW

When I first saw the advertisment for this Gacha at The Epiphany, I thought it was one of the oddest and most unique things I’ve come across in a while and just had to find a way to incorporate it into a scene. The particular head I used reminds me a lot of the well known to baseball fans “San Diego Chicken” mascot…even though it is meant to be a rooster, it’s still fowl (or is that foul? I kid I kid).

BAT⊱ Inkside – Barbed Wire Baseball Bat ♯ Marketplace

This mesh prop comes with an automatic shoulder lean pose but it also works with other poses that includes baseball bats. This item is clearly inspired by “Lucille” the she-devil sidekick to the nefarious Negan of The Walking Dead. This was a pretty cool marketplace find to help pull together a strange scene.

I Am Loco” – Ill NinoListen

After a small extended holiday weekend I am back with another look but this time I’m pretty much geeking out and doing the nerd thing. I enlisted some help from a friend (in this case victim) and got right to work. I think this would have definitely worked if I had placed it somewhere closer to the San Diego Comic-Con but not everything was in place at that time. I found some extra pieces create this idea as it was in a concept stage for a while. I feel like the theme holds up really well with the visuals albeit rather creepy.

After taking a look through some of my other work, it is safe to say that I have a bit of an obsession for a certain villain in the comics universe and most importantly the Clown Prince of Crime or in this case the Agent of Chaos version. I like to try to find ways to incorporate the visual when I can or come across items that inspire it as you’ll see in the credits below.

Several items are from the Marketplace but were integral parts of putting this scene together. I’ve also managed to get the credits for what my victim was wearing (though not everything is scene in the photos and for that I apologize). Of most of the comic inspired ones I have done, I feel that this one is certainly a favorite and came together as I had hoped. Now I am going to leave you with the credits below so you can maybe do some shopping of your own for photography or role-play needs. Be well and until the next adventure stay fashionable with a song in your soul.

HAIR+elua+ – Demi
HEADCATWA – Shaheen (Bento)
FACESTRAY DOG – MARVIN – TONE 02
TEETH⊱ Mad’ – Dirty Mouth [Tongue+Teeth] ♯ Marketplace

What more can be said other than that an insane criminal is likely to have bad teeth. I wanted to get as close to accurate as I could in this scene with the character from the film. Scouring the marketplace I came across this applier for CATWA and after applying it, I was well on my way to acing the look.

BODYBelleza – Jake

OUTFIT⊱ *IS* Joker ♯ Marketplace

One of the most accurate renditions of this attire that I have seen out there on the grid and on the market. I really like this outfit and the fact that it is fitted for all major male mesh bodies makes it that much greater for fans like me out there. The one thing that was not 100% film accurate were the shoes but I cannot honestly tell you how many people would stare at shoes so that definitely gets a pass. Everything else is very spot on and it comes with a HUD with a makeup applier as well (One for Catwa, and also one for Omega respectively).

GLOVESVRSION LODE 5.0 Male Glove

BACKDROP⊱ ISUKA – We’re All Mad Backdrop ♯ Marketplace

This backdrop is simply amazing. I had seen it around in various places but was unable to purchase it during the event that it was first a part of. I went to their main location and did not seem to find it but luckily I was able to catch it on the Marketplace and my scene was pretty much set. If you like using backdrops in your photos you seriously need to check out this store, they also sell really great tattoos as well. You’ll thank me later!

HAIRTableau Vivant \\ Cricket Hair
HEAD[GA.EG] Evan ♯ NEW

Even though this item is not mine, I can give a little bit of commentary on it. This is the second male bento head release by the [GA.EG] brand and it seems a little smoother than the previous one which was very rugged and more matured. This face is quite handsome and can definitely turn heads (when it’s not being disfigured that is).

FACEGo&See *Louis* Milk
MAKEUPZibska ~ Ballard Makeup

This makeup that was part of the THEREAFTER event (I own this as well but didn’t get the opportunity to blog it…so it’s good that someone else helped me with it) and is very well a good fit for the theme of my scene. Terrorizing people and giving them a bit of a makeover is exactly what an Agent of Chaos would do; I think this would also be the result of it.

BODYSLink – Physique MALE Mesh Body Release 1.2

SHIRTN-Uno – Victor Top // N 9
JEANSN-Uno – Victor Jeans // N 9

I passed these items on as a gift for helping me out for this shoot. They were part of a Gacha from the Men Only Monthly event the round before this current one. They only fit Signature and SLink bodies so I figured that since the victim primarily wears the SLink Physique body that it would work better for him.

Tiger Lily” – Matchbook RomanceListen

It’s been a bit since I last created an entry and I deeply apologize for those of you who enjoy seeing my work. The real world has been a handful lately and it’s kept me from completing projects like the one you’re reading and seeing now. Hopefully things will calm down just a bit so that I can get more great looks to you and keep you informed about what’s out there.

I have been enjoying the skin and eyes that you’ve seen become more of my overall look as of late. While I am still going to showcase new items that catch my eye or are even a part of my great sponsors, I like just a little bit of normalcy with my non-blogging life as well and this has helped with that.

Last month at The Men’s Department, I picked up the “Quinn” hair from +elua+ and because I enjoy the products the brand puts out it was almost a sure necessity that I get this one because of the ties to part of my name even if there is not any direct affiliation. It’s a nice mid-length hair that is combed to the left side of the body. It has excellent textures and comes in many color packs which may cause you to have to make a decision…that is unless you get the full fatpack and just wear the ones you like whenever you want to.

Every once in a great while I find something great at Uber, which is very female-centric with male items thrown in every once in a great while. Gabriel has released an outfit that you could easily wear together or separate with other brands of clothing to mix and match but I honestly can say that it looks really good together so you may find it hard to. The “Half Pants In Shirt” is a long sleeved partially open tucked in formal type shirt. It comes in three different colors (Blue, Dark Gray, and White). The other half of the outfit are the “Suspender Half Pants” which are knee length shorts that have pulled down suspenders resting upon the sides of each leg. You can get these in black, khaki, and olive. Keep in mind that even though this outfit goes together the pieces are sold individually or in fatpacks of the three shirts together and also the three shorts together.

The “Summer Drive” pose set from Come Soon Poses really caught my eye when I was looking for a very cute couples type pose that I could set somewhere that had exceptional views, such as Netherwood. The cars that are a part of this pack are very well detailed and work really well to give that overall romantic feel.

I’ve also included in the style credits the look of what my lovely assistant is wearing. Just in case any of the ladies taking a look at this like what they see and want to do a bit of shopping as well.

That takes care of another entry for me and now that you know more about the look and what went into it, you can venture down below into the credits for transportation to the fine stores and events that make up what you see. I look forward to bringing you another great new look soon but until then as always, stay stylish fellas and stay classy gals!

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!
