[#411] All These Words Are Not Enough

I got a feeling where I used to be numb
I can feel it now rushing through my blood
I’m stronger than I ever thought I was
And now I’ve found another way out of here

Break Out” – Scott StappListen

We’re now a few days into October, which is my favorite month of the year simply because it’s the month with which Halloween takes place. This particular entry is not Halloween themed but I plan on weaving them into the looks that I put together this month up until the day itself. This is probably the month out of the year where I feel like I’m as creative as I truly can be even if I feel inspired by looks or locations and also poses as well (which is the case for this entry).

I have several blogger sponsors featured in this post as they have new items at events that have just opened or about to be open as well as items at their stores. Featured are Modulus, Image Essentials, and Avi-Glam.

Events that I’ve been to include Shiny Shabby and Spotlight.

To give you a little preview on things to come on this site is coverage on the new “Dino” head by Catwa as well as new skins by Avi-Glam and Modulus. There were also be items featured from the latest round of The Men’s Department that just opened up today.

I look forward to sharing my next adventure with you and I hope you find something you like from what you’ve seen here or simply go to the events I’ve left transportation to. All of it is great to me if I’ve helped even one person with what I do here. Listed below are the credits and my thoughts on the newest items that haven’t been repeated.

Onto the next conversation…

HAIRExile – Tommy (Group Gift)
HEADLeLutka – Andrea v 3.1
EYES⊱ AG. Charm Eyes – Fatpack @ Shiny ShabbyNEW
FACEModulus – Evan Skin – Cream ♯ NEW

This skin reminds me of the frontman of a band that I like which makes it that much cooler for me to wear it and feature it. You have the choice of 5 different skin tones and it comes with an included brow and body shape. The applier HUD is strictly for the LeLutka Andrea mesh head and has brow and facial hair options for those who want enjoy those features (which I am a fan of skins having facial hair options). This skin can be found at their main store location.

BODYBelleza – Jake

SHIRT⊱ {FE STYLE} Basic v3 (WBN) T-Shirt @ SpotlightNEW

For as long as I can recall, even before I was a blogger…I’ve been a fan of Fe Style. I started out by reading Kev Brunswick’s blog and when he began releasing various items I was immediately a fan. Now that I’m hooked on wearing the Belleza body I’m happy that he’s making items that fit like this shirt I’m wearing. There are 12 different choices of shirt with a mix of solid colors to some with graphics on them such as the one I have on. You can purchase them separately or you can buy the FATPACK at a discounted price. It’s definitely high on my casual t-shirt look list, definitely top five to be honest. This shirt fits classic avi’s sizes XS-XL, as well as Adam, Belleza, Signature, SLink, and TMP male mesh bodies.

PANTS[BODY FACTORY] Killer Pants (Black)

These pants were originally at an event (which normally I’d remember but apparently I have a case of CRS). There was a shirt that was sold along with it as well but I chose to wear the one I have one because I sometimes I like splitting up my outfit between more than one brand so I’m not just focused on one thing. If you are an owner of an Adam, Belleza, Signature, SLink, TMP these should work for you. There is also sizes XS through XL for classic avatars.

SHOES⊱ Belleza – Shea Shoes @ M.O.MNEW

Of course I managed to find a pair of sneakers at Men Only Monthly that fit my tastes. These are made by Belleza for Belleza so there should not be any sizing issues whatsoever. There are three different colors to choose from (Black, Brown, and Tan) and are very good for casual looks like this.


IE – Breaking Free @ Mad Circus ♯ NEW (Coming Soon)

This pose and prop are inspired by Alice In Wonderland or so I believe (I could be wrong and if anyone wants to correct me I have no problem with that). I felt like it worked well with a song I’ve wanted to use as a theme for a while so it ended up turning out pretty well. I needed to do a little shape editing as I believe it was properly created for a gals use but I like to try and go outside of the norm and this was not only a sponsored item but very very useful! Mad Circus is not yet open but I will update this post once it has opened with a link where to check it out.

[#366] Story Of My Life

Life goes by so fast
You only want to do what you think is right
Close your eyes and then it’s past…

Story Of My Life” –  Social Distortion  ♫Listen

Oi! Welcome back to those of you who are returning readers and for those of you who might just be visiting for the first time, it’s a pleasure to have you. I’ve got another punk inspired look for you today as it seems that I’m on that kick at the moment. This entry contains items from the Men Only Hunt 9, The Epiphany, Cosmopolitan and Kustom9 with a preview of one of the exclusives by Go&See at The Dark Style Fair 4.

For the second straight entry the “Simon” skin from Avi-Glam returns. This time I paired it up with a much thicker beard to show a more rugged side. I’ve also thrown in the “Wagner” Flat Cap from {Fe Style} that is still available in the Men Only Hunt 9 which is still going for a few more days. If you are not sure what it’s all about, check back a few entries where I gave a link for the location of the HUD used to jump from location to location involved in the Hunt.

As a blogger it if sometimes nice to get to preview items before an event opens which is what I’ve been able to have the privilege of doing with the “Mountain” eyes appliers from Go&See which will be exclusive to The Dark Style Fair 4 starting May 1st. These eyes are appliers for the Catwa mesh eyes and have a HUD that includes 10 different color iris’.

For you Gacha addicts I have a little something for you as well. Semller and LeNoir have collaborated for an outfit that is a part of The Epiphany event. The machine has specific buttons for different sizes so you can choose the best one that fits your body. I chose of course the [SIGNATURE] Gianni version. One of the best things about this shirt is there is an accompanying HUD that gives you four different choices for the texture; of course I went with the worn look to match with the item that I’m about to talk about next.

In a previous installment of These Conversations Kill, I covered a pair of [ VERSOV ] Jeans called “STEFOV” from The Men’s Department. They’ve released a different set of these jeans at Kustom9 and today I’m featuring the “CUSTOM GRUNGE” version. These light denim, rolled up, jeans with a bit of fraying go really well with the Semller work boots that I had in my closet just waiting for use.

I have one more item from the dynamic [ VERSOV ] brand that you can grab at the Limit8 event. The “NOTROLLOV BRACELET” in Black comes with a HUD that changes the face and metal of the little skull that connects the beads together. Each metal has a pretty funny name to it so I urge you to check this out if bracelets are your thing. This item was not limited to a certain amount but I do believe that once the event is finished it will no longer be sold which means once Limit8 is over this item is off the market. Again I really do recommend this item as a must have accessory.

Now that you can see what went into my punk rock/grunge casual look, you can scroll down to the credits below and take a taxi to the stores and events that were a part of what made this complete. Take a trip, grab a demo and browse around but most importantly, fellas, stay stylish while doing it!

[#357] Your Future Says Run

No you can’t go on
No you can’t even talk
Your future says run
But you can’t even walk

Future Says Run” –  Tonic  ♫Listen

On the 31st of March, These Conversations Kill had it’s 3rd Birthday/Anniversary. While I intended to have this finished by then it just wasn’t possible due to outside obligations. Since I started this little project I’ve come up with 357 different concepts and looks for the readers to do with what they choose. Take what they like or don’t like and create a style or outfit and make it their own.

Time seems to go by in a flash (pun intended) and I cannot express the amount of joy and fun that this has brought me over these past three years. What started out as an idea to make sure that a reader would be able to find the items they wanted if they were available and the exact location to get them was the intention behind what you see here today. I never want someone to feel like I did when I had seen an item on a male fashion blog but there was nothing stating where I could go to get it. Even after contacting the person who authored the blog and getting very little information, it was that exact moment I wanted to strive to produce something better and something more informative.

Thank you to everyone who has followed, liked, faved, and everything else in between. The support that I’ve been given by numerous fellow bloggers who have become great friends and to those that are not colleagues that just enjoy what I do. It all means more than I could ever truly put into words.

Also to the sponsors who have put their faith in this little space on the web to showcase their work because I value what they do. It goes hand in hand.

If you are interested in getting the mesh Flash avatar, you can grab it from 3DMeshiah on the Marketplace. I chose not to post it in the full credits because it is not the central focus of this particular entry.

Stray Dog has slowly become a very strong presence as a skin maker, becoming one of my favorites along with designers like Modulus, Clef de Peau, and even Tableau Vivant. At this current round of ULTRA you can get the Seb skin in three different tones. I chose the Pearl tone as it was my favorite of the three. In the applier HUD it comes with the regular facial skin and also freckles.

Mesange is participating in the Mens Only Hunt 9 that just started on the 1st of April and runs until 30th. There are 5 different colors to choose from as it is a Mini-Pack that is put altogether. I chose the color that looked similar to a certain Scarlet Speedster’s look like before he’s about to take off.

Also the subway background is one I had been eyeing since it became available at Kustom9 so I finally made use of it and really like how detailed it is. It made the idea I was going for a bit easier to work with. I’m not familiar with the brand ninety but if they continue to make products such as this, I will definitely be featuring them more. They are on my radar.

[high v.] is one of those stores that a pop culture nerd enjoys and that is where I found the comic inspired hooded sweatshirts. There are 9 different designs you can choose from and you can tell by the theme of this entry what mine was. Originally this product made it’s debut at an event called Level Up but I don’t recall there being much press or hoopla about it. I found out about them from the ad posted on Flickr by the store itself so I was able to get them there.

The NEOPRIME TRAINERS were previously available at the February/March round of Uber but they should be appearing soon at the Main location any time now. I picked up the full pack because of all the customization options that are available. Millions of combinations can be made from the bevy of colors you are able to pick from. As you can see I went with Red/Yellow this time but I have a feeling this will definitely be featured again in another capacity as they work well with jeans.

Lastly, I’d like to give mention to the XXY “Manly” pose pack that you can grab right now at the current round of Men Only Monthly. I really like their poses though the only small complain I have and it isn’t a huge one is that they only package pose balls. If you want to try and use them on a sim where you are not aloud to place items, you have to manually take them out before you go. As I said it’s not a big deal overall but if Xerys manages to read this little space, I’m sure not only myself but the readers would love for you to include the static poses in the package as well.

I’m going to wrap up this entry up and leave you with the credits and taxi’s so that you can go check out these stores and events and create a great outfit like this one or one of your own. Until next time, stay stylish fellas.

You’re Going Down” –  Sick Puppies  ♫Listen

post333_01 post333_02

I have returned with some more goodies from events such as Men Only Monthly, Ultra, and The Chapter Four. After a small break due to yours truly being a bit under the weather, I come back with a little inspiration.

A little bit behind this photo shoot…not long ago I went to see xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. The original movie is one of my guilty pleasures of sorts when I feel like I want a lot of action. So I thought I would see what I could do to represent that in the virtual world. I think that I caught the overall feeling of an action type movie in the photo and I hope that you agree.

I’m one again wearing the Modulus “Milo” Skin that’s still available at the Ultra event up until the 15th of February. However, I went with the “Nude” variation to appear more darker complected than what I normally wear.

{Fe Style} has the “Orlov” jeans for purchase at Men Only Monthly, which is also running their current round until the 15th. There are 8 different denim choices to pick from and has sizes for Standard (xs-xl), [SIGNATURE] Gianni, and SLink Physique mesh bodies.

At N21 you finish out these winter months with the !Aphorism! Winter Parka. I feel it really goes well with the jeans, they both fit perfectly and did not clip into one another when I was shooting for this posting. The coat has an option to add a fur trim to it as well as the ability to change the fur in a HUD. A shirtless option is also included within the included HUD as well in case you decide you want to show the world that you truly are fearless. It comes with sizes for [SIGNATURE] Gianni, SLink Physique, and also TMP.

The Chapter Four has just begun its new round for February and with that I bring you the “Jasper Eyes” from MESANGE. 15 excellent color choices for you to pick from along with a HUD that gives you the option to change the size of the pupils from xs to large. If you purchase the entire BEAUTY PACK with all of the above mentioned colors, you are able use them with Genesis Lab eyes along with the Standard Mesh and Omega Appliers it already comes with.

After putting this post together I’m all set to get some popcorn and watch an action movie. That leaves you free to take a look at the credits below and take a taxi to these events to browse around. Until next time, stay stylish fellas!
