[#480] Movies

I want you to be free
Don’t worry about me
And just like the movies
We play out our last scene

Alien Ant Farm, ♫Movies

One of my favorite things to do (when weather permits and funds are available) is go to the movies and a lot of time the cost to go these days is outrageous just for one person so I can only imagine what it is like for a family of four or more to go. There are places that have matinees or special deals to get you in to see the latest and greatest which is always the best time to go.

Being the geek that I am, the excitement for the latest Avengers movie “Infinity War” which comes out next Friday already has me itching to see it. Some say you can’t be a fan of both DC and Marvel comics apparently has never met me…because if it is comic book related I am going to see it because (comic books) are one of the things that helped me draw imagination as a youngster and though I don’t keep up with them much now (if at all) I still find ways of seeing what’s happened with certain characters of both imprints.

Pose Fair has some time left but I wanted to make sure that I featured the pose that I am using for this scene because it blends a bunch of things that I love together. The idea of going to the movies and getting some buttery popcorn to munch on as one loses themselves in the worlds that are being created in front of them on the screen. ASO has captured that with their exclusives for the fair and they deserve applause for how simple yet great these poses are.

That’s right, ASO! created two different poses which you can use in a movie theater setting or inside of one (there are tons of options you can work with as far as scenery) with realistic looking popcorn (one pose contains a bag and the other just some popcorn you are tossing into your mouth). The detail on the popcorn when you move close to it is nearly mind blowing. This was one pose that was fun trying to create an idea and visual around and I hope to see more from them in the future that is just as appealing and I have no doubt there will be.

Remember that you have until the 30th of April to hit the Pose Fair for all your photography and blogging needs before the doors close.

Modulus has a been on fire lately with releasing a ton of new hairs and have event updated some of the skins and one thing is for certain and I’ve said this before and I could say it until I’m blue in the face, Chucky Hollak is a man dedicated to his customers. At FaMESHed you can take a look at the “Baptiste” hair which is a a side swept hair of short to medium length which you can have shaved back and sides or just a normal under hair.

It reminds me slightly of a hairstyle that a younger Leo DiCaprio might have had at one time (which to you could be a good or bad thing but I’m looking at it like it is a good thing regardless of any kind of personal feelings about the actor as it isn’t relevant here). I went with the brown color HUD which has been my go to lately (previously always wore black but have been changing it up). If you are or even aren’t a fan of brown there are plenty of choices with 25 colors overall distributed through 5 different HUDs with an integrated tinting application. Of course a FATPACK is also available for those of you that just like to try different things on any given day and stick to one hairstyle for a while.

Check this out at FaMESHed right now which runs through the 27th of April.

When I had my look, pose and idea settled upon the next step was for me to figure out how to compose my image. One thing I know I wanted to do was use a movie theater and KraftWork has a really amazing build that I’ve had for a while and I did my best to attempt to build a scene but that’s not really my forte in the larger scheme of things. Then I realized that the sim, The Last Forever, was created in part by the brand’s owners and a small collective of people; everything I needed to get my vision accomplished would likely be there.

I took a small field trip and a few moments after arriving I saw the exact shot that I wanted and went right to work.

As I wrap things up I encourage you to take a look at The Last Forever and also check out KraftWork, who are a fine creator of decoration and builds that may help those of you who are adept at creating scenes yourself to be inspired for your own pictorials. My requirements as a blogger for Pose Fair have also been met but considering the event is still running and there’s plenty of good things that I’d like to use, you’ll likely see more from the event in some of my upcoming blog posts.

Until our paths cross again, onto the next conversation…

[#456] Baby, I’m Perfect For You

But if you like causing trouble up in hotel rooms
And if you like having secret little rendezvous
If you like to do the things you know that we shouldn’t do
Then baby, I’m perfect

Perfect♫ – One Direction

Valentine’s Day has come and gone (as of this writing it’s been a week) but unfortunately I was not able to spend it with the one I love for circumstances which were not able to be controlled. So despite it being late, I wanted to do a photo shoot with her that not only I could use for this blog but to also collect for our memory scrapbook (a work in progress).

One of the best things is when we’re able to do these it takes really no effort at all and the creativity just seems to flow like a gentle stream. I have had the idea for this particular scene in my head (along with the chosen soundtrack) for a long time but not every piece of the puzzle was readily available until recently. I found two great backdrop/skyboxes and two different sets of poses that really set up a photo shoot that turned out great.

Sometimes songs tend to be catchy regardless of if they are in your favorite genres and this was definitely the case for the soundtrack to this blog post. One of the things that caught my attention was the part about hotel rooms. I thought it would be really interesting to have us running through a hallway of a hotel to get to a room where more than likely all sorts of no good would take place.

My vision became more of a reality when Paparrazi released their “Hotel Hallway” backdrop and I already had the Ana Poses “Let’s Just Escape” pose ready for whenever I could find the right hotel setting. I based my look also upon what a celebrity might look who is courting a young lady but also trying to get away from the limelight. Makes sense doesn’t it?


The hairstyle that I am wearing is a Valentine’s gift at the Shop Your Heart Out event put on by Linden Labs. This hair is a medium to long length and you get the entire FATPACK just for browsing around the event. There are 10 different color HUD packs in the product and I went with the Mix 2 HUD. The Shop Your Heart Out event is currently running until the 26th of February so there is still time to grab this up and a lot of the other great gifts from various stores.

FaMESHed was the destination where I picked up this really cool outfit from [Gild]. It is one whole outfit so you don’t have to worry about putting on separate clothes and comes in 3 other colors (Black, Blue, and Yellow). I like how they paired the suit jacket, shirt and tie with the jeans that has the pocket chain with it (which instantly caught my eye). The outfit is fitmesh and should fit just about all the current male mesh bodies with the right alpha cuts selected. There are more an more products from the [Gild] brand that have been getting my attention so I think I’ll have to continue keeping my out out for their releases.


For the second part of the blog which I would call the after (the hallway was the before of the story) what you see is the inside of the Hotel room which is from the “Room 214 Skybox+Backdrop” from Sayo. It’s really a well put together build and at some point I would like to shoot more parts of it but since I did not really need it for the image I had in my head I get to do it another time. Both the Paparazzi backdrop and this Skybox worked as a whole in a tremendous way; and if you haven’t been to Uber yet now is the time so you can take an up close look at this build for yourself before it closes on the 23rd of February.

Image Essentials created several different poses called “Sweet Nothings” with each one being released at a different destination. This is the third pose in the series which was given a main store release. I had a hard time deciding between pose 2 and pose 3 but I thought that three had the best angle coverage for what I wanted to do and would work best for me. It’s bento enabled so for those of you with bento bodies you’ll be able to benefit but for those of you without one (and at this time there are very few who do not) it will not work for you.


I wanted to give a little bit better look at the pocket chain on the pants of the [Gild] outfit with a close-up shot and also an up close look at the other side of the “Adam” hair by Exile. Honorable mention goes to {kokoia} for their “Gangsta” shoes which I’ve previously blogged in earlier blog posts or I would have given them an even better look as well. All of the things I pooled together made for a the process of posting this really effortless and a lot of fun.

Now I think it’s time to wrap this up for this one because I’ve got more projects to work on and perhaps some mischief to get into with the better half. See you around for the next one.

Onto the next conversation…

[#420] This Cloud…

I don’t want to come back down from this cloud
It’s taken me all this time to find out what I need yeah

Comedown” – BushListen

Hello once again, sorry it has been a while since my last entry but things have been a bit hectic lately. Also had some setbacks trying to get this photo session off with some in-world hiccups so it was suspended a day or so and then the real world kicked in but I got it done and here we are!

I thought that I would combine a little funny/serious tone to this scene.

First I am going to place a little disclaimer by saying that what you see in today’s look/scene does not entirely reflect the views of myself or These Conversations Kill. While I’m not for the use of recreational drugs, I am not against it. Everything has a time and a place and what people decide to do with their time and their bodies is completely up to them. I simply wanted to make a reference to the blog post # in question with a little play on the unofficial smoker’s holiday.

This look that I have is full of items from brand collaborators who have offered review copies for me to feature and tell you about as well as give any thoughts I might have. Designers contributing to this blog entry are Modulus, Mesange and {COLD-ASH}.

Events that I’ve been to and or the review items are located at include Men Only Monthly, The Men’s Department, as well as FaMESHed, We Love RP and Shiny Shabby which all have great various items for males at them right now!

I was recently reminded of a great location to photograph at, The Last Forever. It was time to take a trip back to see if there was a good spot to park my pixels and be able to capture a good scene once I had the pose all ready to go.

You’ll be able to tell with the theme of this entry that the street name (which you can see in the first photo) is appropriate for what is going on in the scene.

It’s about that time to wrap up another fun adventure. For those who just happened to stumble on the page and have never been here, thanks for looking and hope to see you back. To those who are avid viewers who enjoy what they see here I hope you enjoyed and that you’ll be back again for my next entry. Be well until then!

Onto the next conversation…

HAIR⊱ Nutmeg & Entwined. Cameron @ Shiny ShabbyNEW

Beanies are one of my favorite types of hats in both the real and virtual world. What makes this one even better for me is it combines a pair of headphones. Music is essentially my drug, it helps pick me up when there is a tough day or to help celebrate an accomplishment. There is two different versions for males and for females with a HUD that can change the color of both the beanie and the headphones. This is definitely something for those of you who are music loves that are also partial to longer hair.

HEADLeLutka – Andrea v 3.1
EYES⊱ MESANGE – Lephan Eyes @ We Love RPNEW

Another unique eye release from Mesange, 15 colors to choose from via HUD for those of you with Omega applier capable eyes as well as mesh eyes that are included. I find that I’m always in awe with the different combinations of colors that are used in MESANGE products. I know that a lot of eye makers are doing the sizes now but I know that MESANGE was one of the first to start implementing it which offers variety as well to get the very best look for the windows to your soul.

FACE⊱ Modulus – Viktor Skin – Lelutka @ TMDNEW

Viktor is the newest release in the M-Bare skin line and has appliers for both Catwa branded heads as well as LeLutka’s “Andrea” head. With 6 different skin tones to pick from and an included shape with the product, you can create the best look for your vision of who you are.

BODYBelleza – Jake
TATTOO⊱ (( Cheeky Ink )) Joker x Batman Tattoo ♯ Marketplace

Two of my favorite comic book characters together in the form of skin ink. How could I say no to that? I found this on the marketplace as I was randomly searching for things and thought it was something I needed to have. It is compatible with Belleza male bodies and has an applier for Omega enabled bodies too so everyone is covered that might want this tattoo.

SHIRT⊱ {COLD-ASH} BLAKE VNeck Tee (CLASSIC PACK) @ TMDNEW

Want a reason to go to The Men’s Department (Like I need to give you one)? Check out this latest release from {COLD-ASH}, the BLAKE VNeck Tee. There are 8 solid colors to choose from (which you can get all in one HUD by purchasing the FATPACK). This is definitely very casual for just hanging out with your favorite people or doing nothing on a lazy Sunday.

Compatible with: Belleza, Signature (2 types), and TMP male bodies.

JEANS⊱ AITUI – Ripped Jeans – Blue Wash @ M.O.MNEW

When I’m putting a casual look together 3/4 of the time I am going to go with jeans of some type. During one of my trips to Men Only Monthly, I found these jeans to go with the shirt (which I already had). The trend of having ripped/destroyed denim has become increasingly popular over time and I’m starting to really enjoy it myself as it separates itself from your every day plain jeans.

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

SHOES⊱ Bleich – Wheeler – Vintage @ FaMESHedNEW

While I was browsing the shopping guide for the FaMESHed event, I came across the latest footwear from Bleich. I own a few pairs of shoes from the brand but as of late I hadn’t because they had not yet come out with anything for Balleza but that has changed. The Wheeler sneakers are everything I love about low-tops. They are patterned after a certain animal named brand and are untied. Bleich sure upped the anti a bit for my love of low-top sneakers and I think you’ll love these just as much as I do. They are available in 6 different colorways.

Compatible with: Belleza, SLink and TMP male bodies (Also includes female mesh body sizes)

*!R.O!* Dreamer Pose w/ Mesh Joint ♯ Marketplace

While there really isn’t much I can offer as far as insight into this pose and prop because what you see is what you get, I do have to say it is nicely done and I’ve used several poses from this brand and will continue to utilize them however I can.

I would also like to note that the store itself is having a sale on singles and couples poses until the 17th of November. All single poses are marked at 25L and Couples poses are 50L. If you need poses for your works it doesn’t hurt to go do some shopping you may find plenty of things to work with.

[#406] Something Just Like This

But she said “Where’d you wanna go?”
How much you wanna risk
I’m not looking for somebody with some super human gifts
Some superhero
Some fairy tale bliss
I just want something I can turn to
Somebody I can kiss…

Something Just Like This” – The Chainsmokers & ColdplayListen

Thought I’d have a little fun and felt really inspired by the pose that I am featuring in this entry so I decided to do a show a little nerd love and when I was churning my brain for a them it seemed the perfect one came to mind because of the different references through it of comic book characters that I’ve been a fan of since I was a youngster.

Last entry I was wearing the L&B Swear Low Tops and have enjoyed them so much I decided to put them into another look in a different color because they matched my outfit perfectly and being able to do that is a plus when it is sometimes hard finding the right footwear. Most importantly though I am featuring three items from my sponsors Image Essentials, {COLD-ASH} and MESANGE, the latter which are at The Men’s Department and We Love RP respectively.

Even though this is a male fashion blog as per usual I’ve also included the female credits for the adorable girl you see with me. I know that there are some gals that have viewed this site and maybe there are more than I know of but I try to be as consistent as possible. I’m going to leave you with those credits so I can get to working on the next adventure. Be well until our next encounter and stay stylish with a song in your soul.

HAIR⊱ Y-U: JASON “BLK” MENS @ TMDNEW

This hair is certainly unique which is what drew me to it. I think it reminds me of when you see someone get electrocuted in the cartoons and their hair goes every which way. That is what I would describe this hair as being. It’s really cool and unique as I already pointed out. There are several different color packs to choose from or you can get them all together in a FATPACK. It also comes with Classic Hairbases and Omega Hairbase appliers for the full look.

HEADCATWA – Daniel (Bento)
EYES⊱ MESANGE – Byzantium Eyes @ We Love RPNEW

Another exclusive from my sponsor MESANGE that’s out right now at the We Love RP event. These eyes are sold separately and there is not a FATPACK available at this time but there are 15 different colors to pick from. Each pack comes with the mesh eyeballs and a HUD to change the size of the pupil as well as OMEGA compatible appliers for those of you who have eyes that can use that styem.

EYEBROWS⊱ [theSkinnery] Hallford Brows @ TMDNEW
FACE⊱ Clef de Peau – Elias T1 @ TMDNEW
BODYBelleza – Jake

SHIRT//Ascend// Eric Bow tie Shirt – Print 5

This item is not brand new but it is recent within the last month or so and was a bit part of helping me create that nerd chic look. There are tons of styles for this button up tucked in shirt. It also has a matching bow tie that you can wear. Fitting for this item include Adam, Belleza, Signature, SLink Physique, and TMP mesh bodies.

PANTS⊱ {COLD-ASH} DEAN Chinos (CLASSIC PACK) @ TMDNEW

The latest from my sponsor {COLD-ASH} which has bestowed upon me this review copy. These classic casual slacks are an absolute perfect match for the Ascend shirt. Casual but cool these pants have 8 different colors to choose from and it also includes a belt that can be color changed via HUD as well so you can match accordingly. For those of you with Belleza, Signature, SLink Physique, and TMP mesh bodies, you’ll be able to give these stylish trousers a nice home in your closet.

This is such a fun pose and makes for a really lighthearted scene that I was able to put together. You can consider this pose two ways, it could be used as a couple pose but it also has the feel where you could find a really good friend to pair up with and snap some photos. All in all another fine quality work from my sponsors at Image Essentials.

[#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!

Curse my enemies forever
Let’s slit our wrists and burn down something beautiful

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.

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.

BODYBelleza – Jake

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.
