[#405] My Love Is A Life Taker

This bottle of Steven’s awakens empty feelings
Like father, step father, the son is drowning in the flood

Say It Ain’t So” – WeezerListen

Some exciting things have been going on the last few days and I’ll get to those in a moment. It’s been a few since my last entry but sometimes I get these little lulls where either life gets in the way or my though process isn’t going the way I want and when I set up a scene or go to a location to photograph a scene I want it to be as close to what I’ve got in my head as possible.

It doesn’t always work that way.

There are a few repeat items from the last look but that’s mainly cosmetic stuff like skin and eyes. Those are things that often times do not change as much unless there is a new product out that you really like and want to feature.

Good fortune has found me at the n21 and FaMESHed events as I’ve been able to find multiple items to showcase which only usually lends itself to the male events I shop because I tend to find most of my things there. I am quite happy though to be able to display things from events you might not normally see get coverage. Branching out is definitely a highlight for me. Most people are familiar with the MadPea brand which holds hunts, and has different games that contain prizes and I took a venture to their sim and was able to find a great shot to work with so if there is anyone who is looking for an interesting spot to photograph then I definitely recommend MadPea City which you can find transportation too below.

One last thing before I leave you to browse the credits and that is I recently found out that I was nominated for a Bloggy Award. Which for me is a huge honor. The Bloggies is an award ceremony that will feature a who’s who of bloggers and I’ve been nominated in the category of “Best Humorous Blogger”. What makes this truly unique is that people can vote for their favorites so if there are any readers out there that follow the blog and enjoy it and want to help then you can cast your vote at The Bloggies Ballot Site (but keep in mind you have to be logged into a Google account to be able to vote. If you do show your love for These Conversations Kill, know that I will sincerely appreciate it and a big thank you goes out to those of my esteemed colleagues that nominated me to put me in this position.

With that I’m going to leave you with the credits from the scene and some of my thoughts on products that are new to this session. It’s been my privilege and see you again on the next adventure. Stay stylish with a song in your soul!

HAIR⊱ BURLEY – Craig @ n21NEW

When a hair brand releases a hair/hat combination and it looks awesome it gets me all sorts of amped up. I like wearing caps but most times they never work out with hair so I tend to just wear the cap with a base. Burley released this snapback mid-length hair combination. It comes with a style HUD that you are able to choose if the cap is facing the front of you or it is backwards. Also you can change the hat itself with a collection of colors and patterns. There are tons of color packs to choose from or you can purchase the full product for a pro-rated price. I myself picked up the variety pack which includes most of the main hair colors.

SHIRT⊱ Tonktastic – Cotton Tee (Bundles 5-8) @ TMDNEW

This item is a review copy that was sent to me by TonkTastic through my sponsorship with Hermony. Though Hermony is not doing official sponsors at the time he is gracious enough to send me things to review as I am a big fan of his brand and the work he’s done. This is the second time the two brands have collaborated on a shirt (the first being #1-4 that first appeared at the Man Cave event in August). 14 designs in each shirt that you can combine into one HUD if you choose to purchase them all and I encourage you to do so because these shirts are mega sweet. They come fitted for Aesthetic, Belleza, Classic Fitted Avatars, Signature, SLink Physique, and TMP mesh bodies.

SHORTS{COLD-ASH} CHINO Shorts
SHOES⊱ L&B Swear Low Top Sneakers – Male @ FaMESHedNEW

Lapointe & Bastchild’s Swear brand has been one of my favorites for quite a while. I’ve purchased shirts, jeans, you name it and I’ve gotten it because they are well made and fit really well. They’ve outdone themselves with their version of the timeless classic Low Top Sneakers. Included is a HUD with two pages of different color schemes to pick from that will give you plenty of wearability. For those of you with Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature and SLink Physique bodies you’ll be able to wear these kicks and show your cool factor wherever you are at. These are at the FaMESHed event until the end of the month!

[#404] Please Understand…

Curse my enemies forever
Let’s slit our wrists and burn down something beautiful
This desperation is leaving me overjoyed
With fading lights that lead us past the lives that we’ve destroyed

No, It Isn’t” – +44Listen

Hello once again! I’m glad to have any recurring readers and those who are new to the site, I welcome you to a place were fashion and visual art collide in a virtual world. It’s been a few days again since my last entry but it seems that the outside world has been needing my attention. I wanted to quick say that the people affected by the recent Hurricanes (Harvey and Irma) are in my thoughts. It’s also been the 16th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on our country. So many things going on for so many people.

I threw some things together from my time spent at The Men’s Department which is at the mid point of the current round as well as Men’s Only Monthly that concludes its current cycle on the 15th, which means it would be the best time to take a shopping break after you take a look at what I have put together.

As I was looking around in my various resources of finding new locations to explore and take photos in, I came across Ash Falls. Upon landing there it didn’t take me long to find a spot almost right inside the landing point which means I’m going to have to return there again to look around more for spots that I can set up another scene.

At times I find it difficult to add things when it comes to these posts but I try to give the best insight I can. I hope that those of you out there that are readers find something useful here even if it is just one thing. I’m going to leave that where it is and usher you to the credits below and start getting ready for the next look and scene. Until then stay fashionable with a song in your soul.

HAIR⊱ Modulus – Cory @ Man CaveNEW

This preview comes from my sponsors at Modulus. Cory is a style that goes great with shaved hairbases or also parted ones. I would have to say if I were to classify it as anything it would be a cross between punk trends or slightly weening towards hipster. With 5 different color HUDs to choose from or the option to get all of them you are definitely going to look smooth if you choose this ‘do. You can grab this when the new round of Man Cave starts up on the 15th (delayed a few days with consideration for those who might be affected by the storms).

HAIRBASE/BEARD⊱ .:cheeky:. 3 Days Beard & Hairbase @ M.O.MNEW
HEADCATWA – Daniel (Bento)
EYES⊱ MESANGE – DragonnWish Eyes @ We Love RPNEW

This item also comes from a sponsor of mine, this time MESANGE. These eyes are one of 3 different offerings you can find at We Love RP and taking a close look at these eyes they are very appealing with 15 great iris textures to choose from. You can purchase them separately or get them all together with an included HUD that you can use with Omega and LeLutka compatible appliers. If you do not have either of those do not worry the mesh versions are still in the package!

EYEBROWS⊱ [theSkinnery] Hallford Brows @ TMDNEW

Known primarily for their skins, this time [theSkinnery] is taking a shot at eyebrow appliers for the male side of things. There are 5 different styles to choose from, in which I chose the first style as it is what appealed to me most. It wasn’t super thin or super wild…just right by my standards and I am not at all disappointed with how it looks. These will work well with just about any skin and the Catwa appliers give you several different brow color options along with tintable white so if you need to match a certain color it’s easily achieved.

FACE⊱ Clef de Peau – Elias T1 @ TMDNEW

The most recent release in the CdP skin line, Elias comes in 4 different tones (1-4) and while normally I go with T2 I felt like taking a leap and going a tone lighter just to see what it would look like and I’m not really disappointed. I’m not much for the more tan tones because I’m just not a sun worshipper or spend lots of time outside so it would be odd to have a tan for me. The package includes not only the skin but eyebrow and body shapes for Catwa heads Daniel and Shaheen for you to choose from. Of course you’re always welcome to use your own as I did for this scene.

BODYBelleza – Jake

JACKET⊱ etham – Letterman Jacket – Camo @ FaMESHedNEW

It’s not often that I wear camo themed items in photos but it seemed to work out for the outfit I was putting together. This jacket is pretty solid and finding things that fit the Belleza body is a great thing (and it is also become more of a regular occurence). The base of the jacket is regular standard jacket material but the sleeves appear to be leather based which makes this jacket even cooler. It comes with a HUD to change the built in shirt so that you can mix it up a little bit. Sizes also included here are NX-Nardcotix, Signature, SLink Physique, Standard Fitmesh, and also TMP.

JEANS⊱ ::GB:: Cotton Stripe Pants @ M.O.MNEW

When I first came across these I thought they were jeans but as I closely inspected them I found that they were as the item describes, cotton stripe pants. They come available in Black, Blue (which is shown) as well as White and you can purchase them separately or together for a bargain price. I like the fit of these jeans on the Belleza body and am happy that Gabriel is now including them in their products as I’m very much a fan. Included are sizes for Signature and TMP. Sadly there is not one for SLink included in these which may disappoint those who have the Physique body and like Gabriel products.

SHOES⊱ OHeMO – Joel Sneakers @ M.O.MNEW

Sneakers…what can I say? I love sneakers and have a hard time saying no whenever I see a nice pair at an event. Men Only Monthly had several pairs that I enabled myself to pick up and these bad boys rock. I purchased the full pack and was treated to a HUD that I could change different parts of the sneaker with many different color swatches. Customization is a plus for me as I like to have control over what colors I am wearing if at all possible. While I am not largely familiar with this brand, I feel that with the quality of these sneakers I would encourage you all (as well as myself) to give them a deeper look. For you mesh body wearers it comes with sizes for Adam, Belleza, Signature, and SLink.

Animosity – Stephan (04) @ M.O.MNEW

Poses are what bring our creations more depth and life and I know that I have said on more than one occasion (I repeat myself far often than I would like to admit) that I always like taking a look at new pose makers in the world. Animosity is a fairly new brand and is partnered up with Imitation (a newer brand as well). This is one of two pose packs that have been released at Men Only Monthly. I like the style that this brand has to offer and seems that they also are making poses that are not as familiar as you sometimes do so out there. I realize that you can only move an avatar so many different ways but it is always refreshing to see something outside of that and I believe this brand has a great start.

[#398] Burning Down The House

Watch out, you might get what your after
Cool babies, strange but not a stranger
I am an ordinary guy…

Burning Down The House” – The Talking HeadsListen

I‘ve returned after drawing some inspiration from the olden days of music but adding a little bit of TCK twist to it to make it work. I’ve always been fascinated by the music of The Talking Heads from back when I was younger and still kind of finding my way through what I liked music wise. I think it is because of artists like this I have found an appreciation for many different kinds of music.

Artistically I like to create images that may seem different or odd to some but are perfectly normal to me. That’s the beauty of art, you don’t really have to like it if you don’t want to because at some point there will be someone that will and I am quite alright with that. I know I enjoy it at least so it starts from there.

I managed to find a really great background prop to use for this photo session that made the idea that I had in my head a little easier. At first I was not sure how I was going to pull it off or if I was going to try and use post production but I found an item that fit perfectly.

Covered in this post are items from events such as FaMESHed, Hipster Mens Event, The Men’s Department, and Designer Showcase. I also want to welcome back Avi-Glam as a returning sponsor of this blog. I look forward to featuring your products in the future and I’ve even started with one in this entry from a recently past event. Just so I don’t take up too much of your time I’m going to dive right into the credits and what I have to say about some of the latest and greatest. Thank you to all of you that are reading this whoever you are. I’ll be back soon with more great new items but until then as always, stay stylish fellas!

HAIR⊱ Stealthic – Hysteria @ FaMESHedNEW

Stealthic has been around for a short time as a part of the virtual hair creating scene. What I like best about this brand (which many brands are starting to do as well) is offer a styling HUD so that you can have a variation of it that may sway to either the right or the left of maybe even have it a little more fly-away. It’s just one of the things I consider a value when making a purchasing decision and a feature that I think is being more sought after. With 6 different color packs to choose from (a FATPACK is also available) there’s no reason not to check out this hair.

HEAD⊱ CATWA – Shaheen (Bento)
EYESAG. Gleaming Eyes

From the previous round of Shiny Shabby, these eyes have vibrant tones and make them great for use in just about any kind of thing you do virtually. The package includes HUDS for CATWA, Omega, and LetLutka compatible appliers as well as mesh eyes with a HUD to change between the different colors (6 in total to choose from).

FACE⊱ amias – KIAN – invory @ TMDNEW

When browsing through TMD and seeing a lot of the usual suspects that I have come to know, love, and admire, I came across a new skin by a brand that I had never previously heard of before. Amias really did a good job with the “KIAN” skin (which comes in a choice of 3 tones). Also available at their booth are the body appliers (which you can get for Belleza, Signature, and SLink bodies). This Catwa applier has several options to choose from (no brows to several colored brows as well as clean shaven to two different lengths of stubble). I am very impressed with this product and would recommend it for anyone looking to give something new a try.

JACKET⊱ //Ascend// Marc Jacket – Plain @ FaMESHedNEW

Some time has passed since I purchased a product from Ascend and while I was strolling through FaMESHed I came across their latest release (a jacket/shirt combination) the “Marc” Jacket. Sold individually or as a FATPACK, these jackets have a color change HUD included for the shirt to give you several options to fit your style. I purchased the Plain version, but there are also three other versions available (Denim, Pinstriped and Tweed).

PANTS⊱ //Ascend// Marc Formal Pant – Plains @ Hipster Mens EventNEW

While I cannot officially say these pants were meant to be a part of a whole suit (combined with the Marc Jacket) but I will say that they compliment one another very well. The pants also come in the same styles as the jacket so you can mix and match or stick with the same style. Both the jacket and pants will fit users wearing Adam, Belleza, Signature, SLink, and TMP mesh bodies. Looking for apparel for a weekend wedding or a well dressed night out…check out the Ascend booth at both FaMESHed and Hipster Mens Event.

SHOES⊱ ::GB::Vintage Suit / White ♯ Currently Unavailable

The shoes are a part of a whole suit that was being offered at an event quite a long time ago but since I had them sitting around and they worked with the look I was going for I thought I would wear them. Sadly though they are not available currently but you could always contact the people at Gabriel and inquire about it. There’s no harm in doing so.

RING⊱ [DF] Keyboard Ring ♯ Marketplace
RINGS⊱ Ysoral – Luxe Set Rings Luc ♯ Marketplace

HOUSE⊱ D’STOPIAN // Burned to Hell ♯ Marketplace

One thing I never anticipated was actually being able to find a house that was actually on fire. With some scouring over the marketplace I was able to find this build which worked perfectly as a back setting in which my theme was based off of. It also gives off that kind of eerie vibe to it as well if you are able to look close enough.


IE- Choices @ Designer Showcase (4m/5) ♯ NEW

A new item from my sponsors at Image Essentials, this set comes with 5 poses (with 5 included mirrors for a total of 10). I really like pose sets like this that give a sort of suave appeal to them. It almost gives the antagonist of the scene a sense of being a charmer while being completely devious and evil.

[#375] 6th Avenue Heartache

And the same black line that was drawn on you
was drawn on me
And now it’s drawn me in…

6th Avenue Heartache” –  The Wallflowers (ft. Adam Duritz)  ♫Listen

A lot of bloggers out there tend to stick with only the current and new items in their entries but sometimes I like to mix some of the new items from current events to some of my more favorite items within a certain time range or from a certain brand that I know is relevant and still kicking butt on the fashion scene. One of those that comes to mind is [Deadwool]. In my last posting I wore the “Strider” boots because it fit with what I was working with. For this look I combined some of my new items with the “Pleated” Jeans. I’ve featured them a few times but that is the brilliance of purchasing the full packs because you are not always wearing the same one each time out.

One of my favorite brands, Modulus, has two new offerings at the freshly restocked “Limit8” event. For those of you who are unfamiliar with it, it is full of different designers and items with at least one item with a limited amount of product to sell and once it’s sold out it will no longer be sold again in that form. There are two items from Modulus being sold and I’ll start with the “Tate” Hair. It’s a hair that is in between the short to medium range and is combed over to the right side with a little bit of a floaty look. This item is not one of the limited items but it goes perfectly with the “David” hairbase that is also being sold and is the limited edition item for the event of which only 100 copies will be sold. I would take a trip there as soon as you can to take a look at this item because I have no doubt it will go fast.

Also recently re-opened is the Men Only Monthly event, which happens to be one of the ones I look forward to each 20th day of the month. I have two different items from it but we’ll start first with the review copy of the “Andrej” skin from Avi-Glam. I like the youthful look that this skin provides and goes excellent with the “Dante” Shape that is also available at M.O.M. Avi-Glam has also relaunched their body skins which “Andrej” is the first release to get the treatment of new and updated skin tones. There are 8 tones to choose from (Ivory, Fair, Light, Honey, Latte, Tan, Dark, and Cocoa) and the v2 body appliers which you can find at their main location have an option for soft or athletic. Head over to Men Only Monthly and grab some demos because you might just like what you see and want to have it for yourself.

One of my many weaknesses when it comes to shopping (other than skins or gacha machines) is shoes. If it is made by one of my favorite designers there’s more than likely a chance that I’m going to buy it and buy a full pack at that. Kustom9 certainly pulled me in when I saw the “TCHEKOV” Sneakers. These shoes are based off one of the popular brands of low top shoes that I’m not going to name specifically but can tell you that it is named after an animal. The color choice I went with this time is the Suede Cream as it is something that I might not normally go with but I went out of my comfort zone of monotone type colors and felt this fit pretty well with the rest of the outfit. Inside the package you will find sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, SLink and TMP for the gals respectively) and Gianni, SLink, and TMP (for the fellas) as well as Unrigged for both.

For the pose and backdrop of this scene, I’m utilizing the Wetcat & Lemon’s “Alley” backdrop which you can find at FaMESHed until the end of the month. This set can be purchased with or without the animations if you decide that you would prefer to use your own. The one thing that bothered me about this is that to try and use my own lightning I had to edit the build and find the various light sources within it but it is a small price to pay really for a well put together backdrop.

Now that I’ve gone through just about everything there is to know about this look, I’ll leave you with the complete credits of what I am wearing and where to find it either by store or by event. Thank you for taking a look and as always until next time, stay stylish fellas!

[#371] But The Gun Still Rattles…

And I don’t want a never ending life
I just want to be alive while I’m here
And I don’t want to see another night
Lost inside a lonely life while I’m here

Spirits” –  The Strumbellas  ♫Listen

One of the things I enjoy is doing photo shoots on location. It is one of those things where the ambience of the chosen place can be the difference between a good photo and a great photo. Sometimes for whatever reason sims close and leave a giant whole in the blogger photo taking experience. When I heard the news that Ironwood Hills was closing (where I’ve taken quite a few photos in the past) I knew it would create a void for me personally. However, not too long after the announcement they had found a way to remain open but they were going to be doing some things around the land. Ironwood Hills is now back open to the public and has been for a while but this is my first time returning and I was quite happy to visit there and find a nice spot to snap at.

As you might have seen in previous blog entries, TMD is chock full of great items but for me I’ve managed to purchase quite a few skins from the event. For this look I’m wearing the “Sam” skin from Clef de Peau. It is for the Catwa Head family which right now only consists of Daniel but coming soon will be the Stanley BENTO mesh head on the 15th of this month at the ULTRA event. The package includes the applier as well as the eyebrow shape and two body shapes (one for Daniel and one for the new Stanley). Also if you are the owner of the Absfab body appliers for Gianni, you can go to the CdP main location and pick up an updated version with the “tight” body applier.

The facial hair I’m wearing comes from the [GA.EG] brand and can be found at their main store. “Razor Blade” is just as it’s described, it’s a chin strap style beard with sharp points on both sides of the jaw and one right in the middle of the chin with a small bit of upper lip hair. The version I have is compatible with omega applier enabled products.

As I may have mentioned previously, Reach has three different items for you at The Dark Style Fair 4. In addition to the two shapes for sale, they have a tattoo called “Steam Machine” which has various images for you to enhance your avatars epidermis. At first I thought by the name it would be more of a tattoo in the “steampunk” genre but with what I know of it, which I will admit is very little, I do not believe there is a correlation. The product includes two different applier HUDS: one for [SIGNATURE] Gianni and one simply for any Omega applier enabled bodies.

For my hair in this look I decided to get a little creative after I saw an ad for the Beausy standard group gift, which is the “Delilah” hair with a HUD for naturals tone. While yes this may be a hair that was created for females in mind, it can easily be worked to work for us fellas as well. There’s nothing lost heading to the store and just joining the group for free and picking it up. It’s a nice shoulder length hair that really could be almost though of as unisex.

Some time has passed since I did a “Marketplace pick” so let’s welcome that back for this post. When I was scouring for some bento poses which still are not as common as they should be, I stumbled upon the work of Reve Obscura. Not only are the poses in her store well done but they are quite affordable where you might want to look at what else is being offered and stock up! I am using the “Shots” pose which some might be familiar with and I’m not embarrassed to admit this is most commonly associated with professional wrestler Jeff Hardy.; in a way is who I styled my look after for this photo session.

Honorable mentions for this look are the returning “Destruction” jeans by L&B Swear as well as the “Ardor Eyes” by Avi-Glam.

Now that you know just about everything that went into this look you can take transportation to the stores and events featured here and while you are at it, go take a look at Ironwood Hills. It is a sight to behold and if you are someone who likes to role-play there are always people around that might be interested in participating. Thanks again for checking in and I’ll see you again. Until next time as always, stay stylish fellas!

The weekend is almost coming to a close so I hope that you all have rested well or at least enjoyed it with whatever you did. Welcome back again, I really feel like this look/photo session turned out exactly how I wanted it to. Grabbing things from FaMESHed, the SIGNATURE Event, The Men’s Department and an up and upcoming event called The Mens Zone were integral for all this to come full circle.

Rarely ever it seems do I use a country western song as a theme but considering this is my second one in a row I can at least retain my sense of having eclectic music taste. I try to cover all the bases when I can and when the feeling is right and fits an idea I’m trying to go with. I have to say I believe the overall message of these blog post is about doing soul searching when you feel you might be a little lost down the roads of your life. Sometimes we question the roads we take and if the path we are going on is the right one. Our paths are not 100% laid out for us and it is up to us to do what we can within reason to make them reality.

The Men’s Department has a new skin release from the HERMONY brand which is solely for the CATWA brand of skins and compatible with the base skins that come directly with the [SIGNATURE] Gianni body. “Vaugnh is a very handsome gentleman yet is also rugged. There are several tones to choose from but keep in mind again this is only the face applier and that you have to have a Gianni body for it to look seamless. Inside the package you also get an added HUD with 6 different beard appliers that are tintable however you like. You can also choose between the regular applier or a browless version for those who prefer their own specific style of eyebrows.

To accompany this skin I am wearing the “Lorenz” Shape directly from Reach, which is up for sale at The Dark Style Fair 4. This shape was made with the “Vaughn” skin directly in mind and I really think the pairing is great. This is one of three releases you can find at the fair; I encourage you to check it out not only for this particular brand but for some of the other great items available there.

Jadis Ashland and the MESANGE brand are currently celebrating 1 year of being in the eye making business. Congratulations to you and I look forward to continue using your products. In this entry I have the “Theral Eyes” which are currently available at The Chapter Four. With 15 different iris tones to choose from there is something there for everyone and if you have trouble choosing? Well that’s why it’s economical to purchase the BEAUTY Pack and get them all. Included in the individual packages, you get the regular mesh eyeballs as well as a HUD for those with omega applier enabled eyes. With the BEAUTY Pack you get all of the eye colors in one easy to use HUD.

{Cold-Ash} is back with more items this month at various events and all of them are excellent. I have been honored with being able to review the “SAWYER” denim shirt that is their exclusive item at the SIGNATURE Event. This item is a rolled up denim shirt with an optional low neck shirt built in (which you can also remove via the included HUD). The denim textures that you can choose from in the aforementioned HUD are great and you get a really good choice of colors for the shirt as well if you decide to wear it. The sizes available for this item are for [SIGNATURE] Gianni, SLink Physique, Standard Fitmesh, and TMP body styles.

Fitting the theme of being a hard-working cowboy, I found the best pair of jeans for this situation. It took me forever and a day to get into the FaMESHed event but let me tell it you was well worth it for the “Destruction” jeans from L&B Swear. This pack of jeans has it all from two different sets of grunge and beat up denim styles (including the muddy version I am wearing) as well as a gift of regular denim in the HUD for the Fatpack. There is a great chance that I’ll be getting a lot of use out of this product in the time to come.

To complete this look from items that are new and part of events, I have the “Reno” leather cowboy hat that you can pick up at The Mens Zone event. I chose to go with brown leather because normally my go to would be black but I wasn’t really looking to go with a good cowboy or bad cowboy look. I just wanted a normal everyday sort of look and brown fit that perfectly. This was my first time going to The Mens Zone event and I’m not sure if it is just getting started but many of the booths were empty. I do hope though that they fill up or find a way to bring in designers because there truly are not a lot of good events for us guys other than TMD and Men Only Monthly. It’s fact not myth that we like to shop too, just getting that out there!

I encourage you to take a look down below for the full style credits and the taxis for each event, store, and or marketplace item. You won’t regret that you did, but you don’t have to take my word for it. That’s all for now but until next time as always, stay stylish fellas!

[#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!
