[#373] But I Won’t Let This Build Up Inside Of Me

A catch in my throat choke
Torn into pieces
I won’t, no
I don’t wanna be this…

Vermillion Pt. 2 (Bloodstone Mix)” –  Slipknot  ♫Listen

It has finally arrived, the moment many fellas on the grid have been waiting for and now it is here. This past weekend Belleza released their first ever male mesh body: Jake. This omega friendly body could be just the thing everyone needs. With a easy to use HUD and millions of alpha cuts to ensure clothing fits just perfectly, it is hard to go wrong with this body. The package comes with an applier for the Catwa Daniel head to match the included skins tones within the HUD. There is even a spot in the HUD where you can store saved body appliers that you love so you don’t have to dig into your inventory to find it and put it on. While I have not tested tattoos on it yet, I have tried several different skins using the Omega Applier system from Love n Lust. Please note that at the time of writing, the kit for Belleza is located in the women’s section of the Omega store.

This body has a lot to offer and takes things that other bodies have or have lacked and made this possibly one of the best, along with the [SIGNATURE] Gianni model. I can surely see myself switching between these two depending on the types of products that get released. If you have not had the chance, take a stroll to the Belleza store and grab a demo and see for yourself how versatile this product is.

Sometimes I like doing fantasy or horror themed shoots and I think this could easily file under that category. I managed to find quite a few things at the Memento Mori event that is currently taking place until the 27th of May. It is where I found both the “Blood Drink” and “Blood Drainer” to help aid with my vampiric activities. The Drink comes with several ways to display it. As you can see in the photos there is a mouth version, also in the package is a holdable version for both left and right handed people.

Finding eyes to match the overall feel of this look was relatively easy. I received a review copy of the “Undead Eyes” from Go&See that is currently available for a little bit longer at The Dark Style Fair 4. There are 10 different horror centric iris choices to choose from and are compatible with Catwa eyes only. If you play a vampire, zombie, or any type of creature in role-play settings then I urge you to give these a try. There is literally nothing to lose by doing so!

The skin I am wearing is a specialty skin by the brand ^^Swallow^^, it is simply called “Bloody” and comes in just the ivory tone which is one of their palest complected skins that they offer. It has four applier options with two different styles. The regular skin with brows (and one without) as well as a blood splattered version with brows (and without).

I am wearing a recently released product from [BODY FACTORY] which is called “Destruction”. These leather type jeans come in Standard Sizing but I find with the alpha cuts on the Belleza body they fit perfectly without any type of clipping or needing to use what is called “post production magic”. If I would have to describe this product it would be like a cross between leather jeans and cargo pants with some chords to make it different from other items you see out on the market.

Honorable mentions for this look are the “Tommy” hair from Exile and also the “Dylan” pose pack from XXY Poses. I’ve also included the look of my lovely assistant below in the credits as well for those of you gals who might be interested as well.

I’ll be back again soon with another inspired look for you to feast your eyes on but until then as always, keep it stylish fellas and for you gals keep it classy!

Another new week is about to start and I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend. Plenty of things to try and cover this week so looks like I better get going on it so that all of you are in the know! Also welcome back to another blog post and for those of you that are first time readers welcome, I hope you check out some of the other recent entries and find something that appeals to you.

When Exile had their hair sale last month before their “reboot” of the main location, I picked up a small handful of new hairs and I’m finally getting around to featuring one of them in look. I thought with the theme I used for this entry that it was only fitting to use the “Machinehead” hair. It’s a nice messy look that is not too long nor too short at the same time.

I was finding it hard to find a skin that I could use with the [SIGNATURE] Gianni head (which is now updated to Bento for those of you who did not know). At the Signature Event, Clef de Peau has “Calvin” for sale. I have always been a fan of CdP but I’m reluctant to say that I prefer their skins on the Catwa head. Just because I feel that the Gianni head even now that it is bento compatible is shaped very strangely even with the included shape. I’m wearing T2, which is my usual go to with the CdP brand.

OUTLIER is also a contributor to this round of the Signature Event. They have the “Rebel” jeans which I am wearing the “Stone” version of them. I love the texture of the denim on these and there is also boxer shorts built in as well to make them look even more realistic if you are not wearing a shirt. The only size included in the product is the Gianni/Fitmesh version so for those of you that do not have a Gianni body they will not work for you, which is why I always encourage you to try the demos of all clothing before making a purchase. I’ve learned in the past from being hasty and buying things before trying them.

MESANGE has two new exclusive eyes available at We Love RP; for this look I am wearing the “Ashtar Eyes” which have 15 different iris textures you can pick from. Normally with my Catwa head I just use the eyes that come with it but with the Gianni head not providing eyes with theirs I had to use the included mesh eyeballs which needed a slight bit of adjusting.

You know I couldn’t leave out an item from TMD, which it seems with their anniversary round going on this month there have been a lot of goodies being featured here from the event. I haven’t really played any of the Gacha machines as I’ve been trying to lay off of them for the time being. With that said, I have a great shirt in this look from {Cold-Ash} and it is the “REECE” henley shirt. I’ve been graced with a review copy of the “Classic Pack”. This slightly unbuttoned short sleeve is great for casual wear and for summer wear. There are two different versions in the pack (regular and slim waist) for the Fitmesh, Gianni, and TMP bodies; there is only one size for the SLink Physique.

Returning in this look from previous blogs are the “LIFTOFF TRAINERS” from Vale Koer and also the pose I used was from the set “Kai” by Image Essentials.

I look forward to bringing you coverage of the new Belleza male mesh body “Jake” in the very near future now that it has been released to the public. I also have some things from a few other events that I’m just seriously excited to show you as well.

Now that you know just about everything that went into making this entry possible, I encourage you to look down below to find the taxis for locations of the stores/events that are featured in this look as well as the location where the photos were taken. Until the next time as always, stay stylish fellas!

[#370] I’m Sexy And I Know It

When I walk in the spot this is what I see
Everybody stops and they staring at me

Sexy And I Know It” –  LMFAO  ♫Listen

It’s been a while since I have done an entry that wasn’t an emotionally charged theme and just totally let loose and show some of my more humorous side. I like to try and do all sorts of different things with the medium that I work with. I also like to show that I can do funny or poke fun at myself as well to show that I’m not so tightly wound. This definitely fits that category and I did it with the help of items that can be found at The Dark Style Fair 4, The Men’s Department, Men Only Monthly and The Avenue.

I may not have mentioned it in previous posts but it is the 5th anniversary of The Men’s Department and I remember being at the very first one even though I was not very active in-world at the time I wanted to check out what all the hoopla was about. I was impressed then and I’ve continued to stay that way throughout the years and supporting the event as best as I could through whatever means possible. I’ve always found something in every round since the beginning and it makes me glad to know that those behind the event keep striving to bring males the items and designers we sorely need to stay stylish, so thank you TMD for making my job a smidge easier.

While I am on the topic of TMD, my item for this look is the “SEAN” skin by STRAY DOG. I knew the moment I saw the advertisement on Flickr that I would need to feature this somehow. The face can show a hint of mischief if using the right animation on the CATWA Daniel HUD. It’s one of those faces that has that air of confidence bordering on cocky. It comes with a HUD that you can choose whether or not you want to have freckles, there is an applier for both. It also comes with an eyebrow and body shape unless you have one of your own that you prefer to use. I experiment with this kind of thing quite often but I chose to use the one included and the look truly appealed to me.

Tattoos are not something I do a lot of with my looks as most of my styles have longer sleeves or just cover up most of the art which renders it meaningless of what it’s purpose is, which is to be displayed. It’s also not because I dislike tattoos as that is not the case as I am the proud owner of ink in the real world. With that said, there are about three to four different tattoo creators that I enjoy products from, ISUKA is no exception. For this look I am featuring the “Gabriel” tattoo which has a very detailed scene which comprises of a chest plate and full sleeves combination. The product contains legacy tattoos as well as appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Gianni, Omega, and TMP with three different opacity choices (Fresh, Normal, and Faded). It is a very well done tattoo and I encourage you to at least give it and the ISUKA brand a look if you are fan of ink.

Yack is a brand that before finding them at The Avenue I had never heard of. The mens boxers they have for sale (two different texture versions) are very nicely done and if you are the kind of person that enjoys relaxing around in just that well then this product will appeal to you. I purchased the Printed version but am highly considering going back before The Avenue ends to pick up the solids pack. Tthe package contains sizes for Adam, Aesthetic, Gianni, SLink Physique, and TMP with two versions: regular and “exposed” for those of you who are a bit more daring.

Exile is featuring the “Outsider” hair at The Dark Style Fair 4. With the new rich textures that Kavar Cleansate has begun to use in the new era of the brand, it was hard not to splurge and pick up the “All or Nothing” pack. This ear length hair is great for those of you who like having hair that is not short but also not down to your neck or farther. It seems that Exile has been releasing more female items but I expect that to change in the near future and I await with anticipation what he has in store for us fellas.

A few posts back I re-visited the “Ardor Eyes” from Avi-Glam. No sooner did I publish the post I received a delivery of an update adding new iris colors that were not previously included. I like that Avi-Glam takes care of their products and sees opportunities to enhance or update them and for those who previously purchased them are given the new product instead of having to re-purchase them to gain access to those colors that were not available when it first was released.

My last little bit of information for you is about the pose I used for this look. It is the “Kevin (Revisited)” set by Poseology which I originally obtained at the Pose Fair but didn’t have an idea to put it to use during the event. This set of poses are mainly used for those who might be body builders and or more muscular than yours truly which is why I had a little fun with it.

Now that you’ve been given all the pertinent information about what went into this look, I will leave you with the look/style credits below here along with access to the store and event locations for every item I used. I look forward to seeing you back again but until then as always, stay stylish fellas.

[#368] Baby, I Could Die A Happy Man

I don’t need no vacation
No fancy destination
Baby, you’re my great escape
We could stay at home
Listen to the radio
Or dance around the fireplace

Die A Happy Man” –  Thomas Rhett  ♫Listen

It seems like spring and summer is not arriving fast enough (at least in my area) so I thought I’d warm the spirit with a lovely beach couples photo that for you gentleman is loaded with new goodies from events such as The Avenue and the now monthly SIGNATURE Event. I also have some great news for those of you who are looking for a good pair of jeans. I’ll get to that in just a moment but here’s the low down on the latest event releases.

I was browsing my go to website Seraphim to look at the latest events and shopping guides and I stumbled upon an event called The Avenue. I don’t believe it’s been around very long and if it has it hasn’t really hit my radar but I thought I would give it a look through to see if there was anything that I might want to use. While looking I found a brand called Erde that have released a skin called “Kai”. I thought it looked interesting so I went over there and grabbed a demo. This skin definitely has a macho side to it with facial stubble already built in so there was really no need to add anything to it. I do implore you though if you head to The Avenue to take a look at this please take a demo because the skin tone chart is not the usual light to dark. I found that after applying the demonstration that tone #7 was the right fit for me. They also have for purchase the fatpack of skin appliers so you don’t have to instantly run to the main store just so you can look like a whole human being.

After a bit of a break, the SIGNATURE Event is back with a vengeance. Let me tell you for someone that owns both the head and the body this place was like a candy store. Clothes, skins, just about everything you might want is there for you to bring home. One of the items that you can purchase from there is the “Andrew” Tank Top from RIOT. Now let me tell you even though I received a review copy as the brand is one of my sponsors, I would still buy this tank because it’s the epitome of summer wear. The entire collection of colors would be worth it because there are a ton of them and I’m definitely not disappointed in this release. Also included in the package are sizes for Adam, SLink Physique, and TMP mesh body types.

I paired the tank with another item from RIOT, the “Lennon Long Line” Jeans which compliment it well not only in the way they fit together but also because these jeans are just really top of the line. What’s even better is that right now at the RIOT main location these jeans are 50% the regular price during the duration of The Dressing Room event. You can head over there by taking the taxi down below in the credits and catch a great deal.

Given the choice of going barefoot or wearing something on my feet, I choose to go with the latter because I found a great pair of sandals that are available at the SIGNATURE Event as well. {kokoia} has been killing it lately with their footwear and the “Alessio” sandals are no different. There are five different colors in the included HUD that you can change both the straps and soles to. You don’t even have to buy them individually, it is all together for a great price. Considering I’ll probably spend a good amount of time on the beach this summer,

As you’ll notice from the photo I have a lovely assistant joining me for this blog entry. I’ve included the credits for what she’s wearing as well so if those of you gals that read this site are interested you can also participate in shopping with or without a gentleman.

Now that you know what went into this post I’ll encourage you to look just a little further down and see the taxi’s for the stores and events included here. I’ll be back with more SIGNATURE Event goodies and possibly some things from events such as Memento Mori, The Dark Style Fair 4, and the freshly opened May round of The Men’s Department. Until then as always, stay stylish fellas and for you gals…keep it classy!

[#363] And You Are Where I Want To Be

In the back of my mind, well I thought my god
‘Cause all of the hell that’s in my time
But I can still see the birds
And where they went this year

Where I Want To Be” –  The Dangerous Summer  ♫Listen

One of the things as far as fashion goes that always seems to catch my interest and that 9 times out of 10 I will buy…are items with the houndstooth pattern on them. I cannot recall when it first started for me but I grew an affinity for it and now keep a look out for it in shopping guides and whenever I am at a store or event. In this entry I found two items that fit that criteria and are very well made so I felt compelled to feature them and share them with the viewers/readers of this site.

This look started with going to the Shoetopia event. Even though I did not feature the “Stray” creeper shoes from {kokoia} while the event was active, I could not find the right items to pair it with until the newest round of The Men’s Department started up and I was strolling through and found the suit from Scars (in which the jacket/shirt and trousers are sold separately so keep that in mind). I liked the quality of this suit and there were three different suit colors to choose from but what caught my eye the most was that the black jacket had a shirt included with a houndstooth pattern. I instantly thought “well now I have an outfit” and now I’m here telling you about it.

The “Slim Fit” suit from Scars comes in Standard sizes but I made it fit easily with the alpha cuts on the Gianni body. It looks great in combination with the creepers. Makes for one stylish gentleman, don’t you think?

While I’m still sorting through the items from the Men Only Hunt 9, I thought I would give you a look at the “Jaxx” skin from 7 Deadly s{k}ins. It comes in the caramel tone and also provides skin appliers for just about all types of bodies which means if you haven’t been out there hunting for items, this is one stop you should make if you were to. I totally encourage doing the hunt, it’s not every day that designer’s put out items at no cost other than group gifts every now and then.

Speaking of gifts, Exile just redid their main location and are offering the “Tommy” hair for the fellas and the “Gina” for the gals. The hairs come complete with all the color HUDS included so you have all of them at your disposal. After taking a moment to think about it, Tommy and Gina are names that are used in the Bon Jovi classic “Living On A Prayer”. I find that really clever but I’m sure I wasn’t the first to notice this either.

Also a part of this look are the MESANGE “Roseland Eyes” which were a part of The Chapter Four event which is now over but you can grab them at their main location in the credits below. There are 15 different iris colors and a HUD that controls the mesh eyes that are included as well as Omega enabled eyes that you may have.

For the second entry in a row I have used a backdrop from SEUL’S “#scenes” gacha machine from The Epiphany as well as a different pose from the “Kai” pose set by Image Essentials that is currently available at the TWE12VE event to complete the look and scene that you see above.

Now that you know some of what went into this entry, I’ll leave you with the credits so that you yourself can take a taxi to the stores and events that were a part of this installment.

As always until next time, keep it stylish fellas!

[#360] They Said It Gets Easier But They Lied

Really, I’m so thankful for the people I meet,
the places I’ve seen but when she’s not here
It doesn’t feel like I’m living my dream

Miles Away” –  Memphis May Fire (feat. Kellin Quinn)  ♫Listen

After taking a small break for myself, I am back with a bunch of new things that I am truly excited about and to share with you. From this look you’ll find items from the recently open Spring round of The Season’s Story, more goods from The Men’s Department and also a look at one of my favorite items from Shoetopia.

Let’s start with the “Jake” skin from Modulus that is out now at The Seasons Story. I really like this skin as it really coincides with what I look for in a look for my avi. It comes with the options you’ve come to know from Modulus’ “M BARE” line of skins. Shapes for the brows and body are also included. The product is worth going to check out and I’m utilizing the cream tone but if you are looking for something else they have other tones that might suit you better.

Many people including myself love the [Deadwool] brand and that truly may be an understatement. I’ve been a follower of this brand since their very beginnings and they seem to continue to produce products that are truly amazing and well crafted. Their most recent release at the Shoetopia event is no exception. “Chase” is a low top style sneaker that comes in various colors but if you get the full pack you get extra bits in the HUD that comes with it. There are also built in socks which you can change as well, or remove them and go without. I’m a sucker for shoes like this and I know that these will definitely get plenty of use even if they don’t appear here on this site.

I’m also wearing the {Cold-Ash} “Tyler” tank top from The Men’s Department that uses the classic color HUD. I really love how this fits, which I am wearing it for the Gianni body. It goes great with the BlankLine “CargoPants” that were from the past version of the SIGNATURE event. “Tyler” has an option for a thinner waist if you choose to make it more fitting to your body. I like things to be a little looser so I went with the wider waisted version.

The second release of three to come from MESANGE at the We Love RP event is called the “Taomina Eyes”. These eyes are stunning as are all releases you can find from the brand. 15 different colors to choose from with a HUD that includes Omega enabled appliers. These eyes are not just for role-play enthusiasts. They can be used for everyday which is another thing I like about the majority of the releases MESANGE put out.

The bag you see me holding is the {Q-Essentials} Messenger Bag; while there is no set release date for this item, I was granted the privilege of being able to showcase it here for you guys. When it is released, I will inform you in a future entry as I link back to this post so that you can grab it when the time comes. I really like this bag and it’s made well and there will be more colors to choose from when it has a proper release.

I have to give a special mention to [Bad Unicorn] for their excellent backdrops. For this entry I went back from one of their earlier releases the “Hype-Beast” set and am using the RARE from this gacha machine. It fit the idea I had in my head so I’m very glad that I was able to make use of this.

Also be sure to check out Exile, they have a new build at their main location as well as a gift for both the gals and the fellas. They have new hair textures for their products so I think that is well worth checking it out.

Now that you are better informed about what you see in this entry, I leave you with the transportation to get to these stores and events so you can see everything they have to offer. I’ll catch you again soon but until then, stay stylish fellas!
