[#348] All Hell Can’t Stop Us Now

It has to start somewhere
It has to start sometime
What better place than here?
What better time than now?

It’s now on to entry #3 in These Conversations Kill’s coverage of Skin Fair. This time not only is there a skin but also some ink for those of you who love using your skin as an art canvas.

I’ll start though with the very top of the body and work my way down, seems like the best way to break things down.

At The Crossroads event there is a new release by hair creator “tram”. You can purchase the G0220 style with three different HUD packs to choose from. I thought this style went best with the look I was going for as it seems to fit the different asian trends I’ve noticed lately. A longer pulled back style with some curls left in the front and a small little tail in the back. I really like it along with the textures and I have a feeling that it may have some use in future works.

This is also the third release from MESANGE from their exclusives for the We ❤ RP event. The “Tikal Eyes” have 15 different options for you and for those of you with Omega enabled eyes a HUD to change them as well as the standard mesh versions. Each eye has different iris/pupil sizes for you to stylize yourself.

Modulus’ “Jae-Sun” skin is the second I’ve featured of the three exclusives from Skin Fair. I chose to stick with the included shape and hairbase for this one because it was the best fit for what I was going for. I also chose to use the full eyebrow/beard combination as well for a little more rugged looking assassin. Gives a bit more of an “edge” if you get my drift.

The trend for tattoos on the grid these days seems to lean towards using different images and kind of mashing them up to create a theme. Personally I’m not sure that I understand it but it does tend to make for some cool looking ink and that’s what I feel Dappa has done here. “The Alchemist” grabbed my attention the moment I saw the advertisement. From the image of the knight on the left pectoral to the King Arthur type theme, it was just something I had to have. Provided in the package are the standard tattoo layers and then HUDS for various body types with fresh and faded opacity levels. It’s a must have tattoo and a high favorite of mine in all of the ones I’ve seen offered lately.

Today is the final day of the February/March round of the Signature Event. I’m happy that I got this in even if it is at the 11th hour of sorts but I had to feature the Gabriel bento enabled gloves. There are two versions for sale but I went with the regular version. As much as the version with the ring on the finger called to me, I thought this was best for the idea I was running with.

I have at least one more item to show you before the current round of Men Only Monthly ends on the 15th to restock for the March/April round that begins on the 20th. [Gild] who was once a part of Gabriel has struck out on their own and is off to a good start with some of the items I’ve seen from their brand so far. I’m wearing the “Soft leather easy pants” in the checkered version. I thought that I would do something different since it’s way too easy to just wear a pair of black leather pants and with this being offered it was a refreshing change of pace. Sizes included in the package are for Gianni, SLink Physique, and TMP body style. Sadly there are no standard or fitmesh sizes for this product.

For the backdrop and pose, I’d like to give honorable mention to both MINIMAL and Q-Poses. They helped make this head easier in creating. I picked up the “Illusion Background” from Uber and “The Warrior” pose set was originally available at Cosmopolitan but you can currently pick it up at their main location or at the current round of 2nd Level.

Time for me to get to the next adventure but I hope you like what you’ve seen and head out to these locations for these great items or for items that peak your interests. Until the next time, stay stylish fellas!

Gachaholics rejoice, The Epiphany is back again for another round of random madness! I’ve returned from plugging the Gabriel machine and am excited to tell you about it. But first, for those of you who do not know what The Epiphany is, let me give you a brief crash course.

The Epiphany is an event which has some of the best designers on the grid with products in Gacha Machines. For a fixed price you get a random prize out of the ones shown on the machine itself. Most people get frustrated when they amass a pile of extras from a certain machine but that’s the best part of this event. If you are unable to trade or resell these items you can turn them in for points which you can stockpile and purchase prizes from the machines that are specific only to this event and once it is over are gone for good.

Back to the Gabriel machine now and the spoils I’ve earned from it. The machine is broken down into 3 hooded sweatshirts (Black, Gray, and White), 5 Color Denim Pants (Black, Green, Navy, Red, and White), 3 styles of work boots (Black, Brown, and White) and the RARE item is an off shoulder leather jacket which can go on your shirtless shoulder or wearing one of the hoodies in the set, which is a nice touch I have to say.

I also have made another trip to Men Only Monthly and have more goodies from there. Returning again are the Avi-Glam “Ardor Eyes” which this time I’m wearing a sea color appropriately named “Baltic”.

Go&See has returned with their first male skin release which is designed for best use with the Catwa Daniel Bento and [GA.EG] Damon Bento heads. The Jayden skin has 4 tones available (Dark Tan, Pale, Tan, and Goth) and also includes body appliers for SLink Physique, [SIGNATURE] Gianni, and TMP mesh bodies. In the applier HUD, you also get an option for brows or a browless option as well as clean shaven or facial hair.

Be sure to keep an eye out for future posts with more items from The Men’s Dept, Men Only Monthly, and the newly opened SIGNATURE Event that I’m excited to let you know about. It’s back to it for me but until the next, keep it stylish fellas! Here’s the credits!!!
