[#572] Gimme A HELL…Gimme A YEAH!

Can you feel that?
You better hold on
This one’s about to get bumpy

Rev Theory, ♫Hell Yeah

The weekend is here and I’ve got something more from the Pose Fair to share (which is going to be a central theme this month) and one of my long time fave pose makers. Most people on the grid are familiar with WetCat Poses and if not they should become versed in one of the brands that has been around for just about half the time I’ve been active on the grid if not more.

WetCat is a brand that when visiting their store you can find single poses for both male and female, couples poses as well as things with props such as the pose I am featuring in this post. In my personal opinion I am a fan of any pose store that can do just about everything and do it well; it is what grabs my attention and allows me to get my creative mind to kick into overdrive.

The Pose that Brenna and I are using is called “Youngblood” which being a music fan I am pretty sure that it is a reference to a song by the band “Five Seconds Of Summer”. I have never actually heard it and it could prompt me to go and give it a listen but I already had a good idea for the soundtrack before I even started taking photos.

With that said, I’ve been wanting to do a photo with a motorcycle involved for some time now and of course especially one with my wife because she is often a source of motivation and inspiration. Rev Theory’s “Hell Yeah” is an adrenaline filled jam that to me focuses on the way a woman happens to fuel the person whose perspective the words are coming from and that definitely is close to home if not right at the doorstep.

WetCat Poses – Young Blood Pose & Prop:

  • Mesh motorcycle prop included
  • Couple posesball poses
  • Versions for curvier models also included
  • Exclusively @ Pose Fair now until 01/31/19

It was a lot of fun for me to put together a biker look because I don’t usually do photos with me wearing leather jackets as much as I would like and I even found a great pair of leather pants that I just had sitting in my closet from a Gabriel gacha from last year or somewhere around there. The outfit was super easy and I’ll get into that a little more in a few but what I thought may be trouble was finding hair that looked the part of what I was going with.

Fortunately enough Modulus has a style called “Leo” that is at N21 until today so it is quite possible that this may not get published until later but I will still leave a taxi to get there but if it isn’t then it will hit the main store by no later than Sunday I would say. Modulus is really good about getting their hairs from events into the store so that people who may have missed them (and I’m a person who tends to miss events more than I want to admit as both a blogger and a shop-a-holic).

“Leo’s” style is moderately short but with some slight hanging locks to the side (which side it is on is up to the individual user). It was a great choice to go with for a biker appearance because it’s an in between type style and what I mean by that is that it isn’t completely buzzed but it isn’t super long (though some bikers do have long hair). It’s a fantastic hair that I recommend for the fellas out there and even gals could pull it off because it does remind me of the style I have seen on actress Ruby Rose.

Modulus – Leo Hair:

  • Original “Nex-Gen” Alpha Mesh
  • 5 Color Packs with Integrated Tinting in HUDs
  • 40 Color FatPack also available
  • Left or right mirrored versions included
  • Exclusively @ N21 until 01/12/19

A month or so back at TMD there was a leather jacket by Tori Toricelli called “The High Line Jacket” and I had meant to get it because I knew there would be use for it but I forgot to get it while it was at the event. When the idea of this photo started to play in my mind the memory of not getting that jacket came to the forefront which prompted me to find their store (I had never been there before) and get the jacket to complete my look. I already had the boots, I had the pants and and I had the hair and facial look nailed down which made this the last piece I needed.

There are a lot of features in the FATPACK that I couldn’t ignore so I made the hard choice to get it with the idea in mind that this photo is not the only time I’ll be using this jacket; it has many uses and I can wear different colors of it in combination with shirts and graphic styles to not make it the exact same jacket. The graphics feature is rather neat because it can be turned on and off as well as a choice of having light or dark versions depending on what color shirt is chosen.

“The High Line Jacket” is available in singles versions (with white or black shirts but without graphics) and come fitted for Aesthetic “Enzo”, Belleza (Jake), Signature (Gianni) and SLink Physique male mesh bodies.

I‘ve chosen not to bulleted list for the Tori Toricelli jacket because I’m not necessarily featuring it as a new item as well as it is not a brand that I am a part of the blogger team. Not that it makes it less important to me as it is a very big part of my look for this blog it just saves on time as well as reading because I feel like I have started to go well over what I’ve allotted myself for this post.

On that note it is time to provide the credits for what I am wearing as well as what Brenna’s look consists of so that if there’s anything that catches the eyes of the female readers of this blog then they’ll know where to pick up those items as well. Expect more from me this week as this is the first of two photo sessions I had last night so I anticipate probably posting at least five or six days out of seven depending on my schedule.

More photo sessions await me so I’m going to say goodbye for now and will be back soon with another conversation!

[#554] White Winter Hymnal

To keep their little heads from falling in the snow, and I turned ’round and there you go
And, Michael, you would fall and turn the white snow red as strawberries in the summertime

Fleet Foxes, ♫White Winter Hymnal

When on a roll the best thing to do is not to question things and just keep it going and so I am posting my second straight seasonal winter photo but this time I am not alone. I brought my wife along for the ride to watch me do crazy dumb stuff and hopefully not kill myself (which includes sledding off of a hill). We visited the wonderful location of Mesmeric Cove which is a seasonal sim run by two of our good friends, Yoshi and Duckie. I was already in the winter mindset and also had some fun things from The Men Jail that I thought I would feature so let me get started on that.

Kaju will be releasing the “Magnus Sweater” this weekend as part of the event and for anyone that is a fan of bulky, warm, sweaters this is the perfect thing. It has that cozy feel to it and is definitely something that would keep the body warm on a cold day (providing you have another shirt on underneath because trusting cold weather is not a smart choice).

There are plenty of options to choose from included in the FATPACK and this is sure to brighten the day of anyone who might happen to be an ugly sweater enthusiast as there are some really fun designs that can be purchased together or separate.

Kaju Magnus Sweater FATPACK features:

  • Original mesh
  • HUD with 10 changeable sweater designs
  • Fitted sizes for Belleza (Jake), Signature (Geralt, Gianni) and TMP male bodies
  • Coming to The Men Jail event on December 8th

Playing outside is usually a past time for kids but I can’t help myself with the “Sleddin Around” prop and pose set by Urban Mind Poses. This is the same store that made the Rhapsody Poses that I blogged from last months TMJ event and really liked and this set isn’t any different. It’s a lot of fun with a great set of poses and mesh sled that allows for fun winter photos like what I did in this blog post.

I’m fairly certain that after hopping that cliff my wife thinks I’m surely done for but most of the time I tend to land the right way which will allow me to have fun and blog another day haha!

Urban Mind Poses Sleddin Around Prop and Pose features:

  • Mesh sled prop
  • Sled prop contains 6 poses that can be adjusted via script
  • Poses included individually in pack as well
  • Coming to The Men Jail event December 8th

The last part of my haul for The Men Jail as it relates to this post are the “Drama Set” eyes by GLOOM. This is my first experience with the brand and while it is sometimes difficult to blog things such as eyes I hope that the closeup I captured helps you see that these eyes are pretty cool. One of the toughest things about eyes is making the choice of what color iris to wear and since this is a winter photo I ended up going with grey, it just seemed fitting to me.

These eyes are really detailed and they have to be seen for themselves honestly as I’m not even sure that I’m capable of capturing them but I certainly tried my best and I can say that with assurance.

GLOOM Drama Set Eyes features:

  • HUD includes 13 different iris colors
  • Applier HUDs available for CATWA, Genus Project, and LeLutka heads
  • Coming to The Men Jail event December 8th

That is just a little taste of what is in store for those who come to visit The Men Jail event which starts tomorrow. There are plenty more goodies from it that I’m excited to show over the course of the event in upcoming blog posts. I hope it motivates readers to take a look at what is available because I truly think there’s something for everyone at this event.

I’ve spent a bit too much time now with the this entry and the last outside so once again I’m going to get a warm beverage and spend time by the fire with my favorite person and start planning on what to do next as I search for the next conversation. Hope everyone has a great start to their weekend!

[#550] Love You To Death

Those lips move, yeah I can feel what you’re sayin’, prayin’
They say the beast inside of me is gonna get ya, get ya, yeah…

Starset, ♫Love You To Death
(Originally by Type O Negative)

I want to start out this entry by wishing everyone who comes across this in the next day or so Happy Thanksgiving. This year has had its share of ups and downs but the one thing that remains for me is that I am thankful for all the good things and people that have come into and have already been a part of my life. This is the easiest part of the year to express that gratitude because it just flows into the air.

While most of my US based friends and family are celebrating today, I also am thankful for my people all across the world which includes places such as Canada, Denmark, England, the Netherlands, New Zealand, the Philippines, Scotland and some places I might have forgotten. It makes no difference where someone is from but it is the feeling of comraderie that makes everything feel right.

Most people are probably eating Turkey today (myself included) and I know that I said that I wouldn’t likely do any more vampire themed photos this year but I was wrong and what better than on the biggest day of consumption that I post one because after all…vampires are hungry too! The look I chose combined with other elements such as the effects on my lips to the pose and backdrop, I was inspired along with the suggestion my wife made about the song choice (thank you for that B!)

I‘ll start with the lip effects that I have on which is the “Dropy Lips” applier by Go&See. Of course the original color is red that I used because I am doing a vampire photo but it comes with different colors so that your lips have the appearance of just about any kind of liquid dripping from them (perhaps ink or alien blood?)

This applier is really the perfect start to putting together a scene featuring a creature of the night (which goes along with my binging of The Vampire Diaries as well).

Go&See Dropy Lips applier features:

  • Applier HUD for CATWA, Genus Project, LeLutka and Omega (Sold Separately)
  • 8 colors to choose from in each applier HUD
  • Available now @ the Go&See in-world store and marketplace

The Level event has a few days left and I want to focus on the “Nathan” hair by Modulus. It’s a short style that has a spiked feel to it but it’s not aggressively so that the hair sticks straight up because there’s so much mousse in it to choke a horse. It has that vampire feel to it as it is somewhat reminiscent of either Edward Cullen (Twilight) or Stefan Salvatore (The Vampire Diaries).

As far as styling myself to have that kind of dreamy vampire look I think I handled it well and I don’t feel like there were any complaints from my wife.

Modulus Nathan Hair features:

  • Original ‘Nex-Gen’ Alpha Mesh
  • 5 color HUD packs available
  • 40 color FATPACK also available
  • Mirrored left and right versions included
  • Exclusively @ the Level Event until November 25th

Man Cave is hot for the month of November and for the first time in their lineup the unique style of Bakaboo graces the event. I’m really excited to see this brand here because it is a big event and more people should become familiar with what Ocean Blackthorne does as his sense of colorful style and designs really brighten up fashion (in my opinion of course).

The “Chris Vest” is a shirt/vest combination that has lots of different choices between the two different color shirts to the 3 different pattern HUDs for the vest. There is a style for just about anyone and I chose to have more of a subtle and minimalistic approach by going more monochrome with the vest. I usually choose vibrant colors in the outfits made by this brand but I felt this was the way to go.

Bakaboo Chris Vest features:

  • Original Mesh
  • 3 different pattern HUDs with 5 colors each (Sold separately)
  • White or black shirt option in each HUD
  • Simple basic pants included
  • Fitted sizes for Belleza (Jake), Signature (Gianni) and SLink Physiqe mesh bodies
  • Exclusively @ Man Cave until December 9th!

The glue that brings this together is the “Wicked Hunger” pose from Image Essentials and while this is not a brand new release it is one that I’ve wanted to blog for a while and thought that with all these other elements in play that no time was better than the current. My wife happily agreed to pose with me and I think that it turned out great (that may sound biased but I believe it to be true).

With the help of the LeLutka Face HUD which works just as great with CATWA heads as it does their own branded heads, I was able to raise my eyebrows and make a vampire face with ease. I also made use of the CATWA teeth add-on that is available at their store and has many options to create a similar vampire look or different ones based on other creatures with teeth.

Image Essentials Wicked Hunger Pose features:

  • Bento enabled couples pose (Bento viewer required for proper use)
  • Modifiable to be able to adjust and compensate for avatar compatibilty
  • Available now at the Image Essentials in-world location

This was one of the bigger blogs I’ve had lately and have included both mine and my wife’s credits so if there is any part of her look that someone finds appealing they can easily find it on the grid. She is wearing the “Yvonne Dress” from ViSion that is exclusively a part of Collabor88 for the November round. The backdrop we have behind us is the “Salem Street” backdrop by Paparazzi which helps add to the overall mood of the scene.

I’ve enjoyed being able to bring you something new on a day that celebrates being thankful and I am also thankful for anyone who has ever visited this site, left a comment, faved a post or has found something they liked because I wore it or had it as a part of my scene. This is how I will leave this to go enjoy time with those who mean the most to me and may all be well with the visitors of this website until the next conversation.

[#541] A Million Dreams

However big, however small
Let me be part of it all
Share your dreams with me
You may be right, you may be wrong
But say that you’ll bring me along
To the world you see
To the world I close my eyes to see
I close my eyes to see

The Greatest Showman Cast, ♫A Million Dreams

With the final days of Pose Fair approaching (it ends tomorrow October 31st) I wanted to squeeze in one more item that reminded me a little bit of one of my favorite movies, which is a perennial cult classic that is shown quite often during October in most places and one that I watch as part tribute/part tradition and have for years now.

In “The Crow” during flashbacks of the life he lived before his violent death, Eric Draven and his fiancee Shelly Webster are shown in a field of flowers with vivid colors and in a way I wanted to recapture that in my own style by dancing with my most favorite person of all. I’ve pretty done a facsimile of scenes from the movie for several years of this blogs existence and thought maybe I would do it differently this year.

Normally I also don’t do showtunes but sometimes you have to compromise when it is something that has meaningful words. While I have never seen “The Greatest Showman” it is actually on my list of things to eventually get around to watching as I don’t completely rule out watching any sort of movie as I’m probably one of only a select handful of people who might admit they’ve seen “The Notebook” but I thought the story was good.

The theme that has been chosen for the soundtrack of this blog post has quite a bit of meaning if you listen to it and along with the photo makes a lot of sense to me to use it so I can thank my wife for showing it to me (as I had asked her to suggest something and she came through like she always does).

The only new release that I am featuring in this scene is the pose, which is from CORPUS and called “Time Lapse”. It’s a very sweet couples pose that fits the two of us doing something as spontaneous as dancing in a field of marigolds on the Whimberley sim, which I have not visited in a very long time and am happy that it is still alive and kicking and looking as great as ever; it is truly a unique place to explore and to take someone you care about with you as you roam around.

CORPUS Poses Time Lapse Couples Pose features:

  • 100% bento enabled couples pose (bento capable viewer required for proper use)
  • Modifiable for avatar compatibility
  • Available exclusively @ Pose Fair until Oct. 31st so hurry!!!

That is really all for this blog post which gives me more time to see what I can whip up for a Halloween photo tomorrow (because it’s my favorite day of the year of course!) I really hope that visitors enjoy this post as much as I did shooting it as it shows a different side of me that doesn’t always show up in the pages of this blog but am trying to more and more when possible.

I shall finalize this by giving you the credits below for what I’m wearing and also what my wife is wearing as well as the taxi for you to visit Whimberley to go explore when time permits. It is a really wonderful place that you can just walk around and relax and just have an overall good feeling. So until our paths cross once again, it’s onto the next conversation…

[#528] The Luckiest

Next door there’s an old man who lived to his nineties
And one day passed away in his sleep
And his wife; she stayed for a couple of days
And passed away

I’m sorry, I know that’s a strange way to tell you that I know we belong
That I know

Ben Folds, ♫The Luckiest♫

Continuing with my latest series of light and feel good photos, I didn’t have my soundtrack for this blog until after I finished taking the photos for it. Sometimes I will just search on Google for songs that relate to an emotion and see what pages come up and listen to some of the results. This time I did a search for “songs about celebrating a relationship” and listened to a few selections but nothing could beat “The Luckiest” by Ben Folds.

I’ve been familiar with Ben Folds music for decades as he’s been a solo artist as well as part of a quintet (Ben Folds Five) and some of his songs are nerdy but a fair amount of them really pack an emotional punch and that is what this song does. If anyone that does read this clicks the links to the videos that I post the links to in the quotation at the top you will know what I’m talking about. This song makes you think even with it’s quirk towards the end it is definitely a song that fits my search.

The “To Us” pose by Image Essentials is a good representation of celebrating a relationship between two people. A longing gaze from the gentleman as they both toast their happiness with on another is a special moment and a fine depiction. I had to make a few adjustments with my pose but little needed to be done otherwise. The props with the couples pose (the chair, two glasses of champagne, and the champagne bottle itself) are nicely done should definitely be looked at by any couple that wants to take a portrait to hang on the wall.

Image Essentials To Us Couples Pose (With Props) features:

  • Bento enabled couples pose (Bento viewer required to use properly)
  • Mesh couch contains poses (and added props)
  • Available @ Image Essentials flagship store

Hot off my previous blog where I featured the first of two new hair releases by Modulus from the 2018 edition of Hair Fair, I am rounding out the coverage for the store by wearing the “Elijah” short hair. I chose to use the same hairbase with this hair to add some depth as well. Compared to the Fraser hair I had on in the previous blog, this one is much shorter and a bit on the curly side as far as I can describe it to you; plenty of colors to choose from as always with Modulus as well.

With four days left of this year’s Hair Fair to go…if you haven’t checked it out yet then what are you waiting for?

Modulus Elijah Hair features:

  • 100% original alpha next gen mesh
  • 5 different color HUDs available with 8 base colors in each
  • 40 color FATPACK also available
  • Integrated color picker in each HUD for added customization
  • Left or right versions in package
  • Exclusively @ Hair Fair until October 7th!!!

The two above things are main features for this blog but I have to give mention to the recent BlankLine release from the September round of The Men’s Department. I am wearing the “KnitVestShirts” which I feel is a classic look and best fit the scene I had in mind when I was brainstorming it. I chose to go the FATPACK route with this because I wasn’t sure what color style I liked and having all the options (being able to color change the shirt, vest and tie allowed for me to come up with exactly what I wanted).

With more to come to the pages of this site I am going to thank those of you who visited and anyone who follows me on any of the social media outlets, it really is humbling hearing from those of you who I have never met talk about things I’ve posted. This blog is not just for me and anyone who has felt any of the feelings that have been expressed or have become inspired by the images or words, this is for you too.

Until our paths cross again, onto the next conversation…

[#515] I Melt With You

Moving forward using all my breath
Making love to you was never second best
I saw the world crashing all around your face
Never really knowing it was always mesh and lace

Modern English, ♫I Melt With You♫

Lately it feels like the songs that come into my head to help me with providing an audio companion to the visuals has been what the younger crowd would refer to as my oldies. I prefer more to call them vintage tunes but just like the “oldies” of say my parents, these songs have their place in history for what it’s worth. It also seems that I can be a bit cheesy at times when I pick blog post soundtracks but it is definitely a lot of fun to dig deep and pull out something that most have either forgotten about or have never heard before.

I decided to do something super fun and with summer bordering on closing up for the season in the near future, I thought that perhaps an outdoors photo would work well with the pose and prop I am featuring in this post from Image Essentials.

Lickable is a bento couples pose that find to be (and I don’t often use this word) adorable. One thing that I know from experience though depending on the girl is if you decide to be bold enough to swipe some of her ice cream you best be prepared for the reaction afterwards which ranges from laughter to atomic rage. In this case I think I got lucky because I’ve managed to theft some of the cool treat and I’m still breathing!

With this pose and prop, Image Essentials has not over complicated a sweet moment between a couple (I think this could also be used with friends as well) and there was not a lot of adjusting that I had to do to get this pose to fit right; I also like that the ice cream cone prop is transferable so that you can hand it to the person you are posing with and are not be put in a bind because it is a copy and no transfer item.

If you want to grab your favorite person and have a fun little moment then this is definitely for you!

Image Essentials Lickable Pose & Prop features:

  • Bento enabled couples pose (Bento capable viewer required)
  • Transferable mesh ice cream cone
  • Exclusively @ Mesh Body Addicts Fair until 08/21

Footwear may be one of my weaknesses in the virtual world but when it comes to the real one I am very much a collector of hats (I have probably more than 100 styles from music bands to sports teams). BETRAYAL has released a snap-back style hat at The Men’s Jail that really caught my attention and I thought it would work well with my look. In a way I kind of look like Mars Blackmon (aka Spike Lee) from the movie “She’s Gotta Have It” and the Nike shoe commercials back in the 90’s which makes sense because I have an old school look while using an old school song for the soundtrack.

Many of the hats on the grid seem to be more flat billed and maybe it is something that is a difficult to create in whatever program is used by them to mesh. Personally I prefer hats that have a more curved bill (not sure if there is a term for it) than I do one that’s flat. BETRAYAL’s “The “CAP” is not entirely flat and has a bit of a curve so that makes it even better for me and there are several designs to choose from that are super stylish and cool.

Out of all the items from The Men Jail that I’ve liked, this one is probably the best because I do enjoy hats so much and finding one on the grid that I would consider awesome is somewhat difficult. I give this release high marks and it is something that helps keep the products you find at The Men Jail diverse and not more of the same that you sometimes see with events.

BETRAYAL The “CAP” FATPACK features:

  • 100% mesh
  • Resize upon click
  • 13 different styles to choose from (B Ball used in photos)

For a second straight post I am wearing the RetroNerd Glasses from Paparazzi because I absolutely love them and intend to wear them as much as I can and with all the different style options that are at my disposal I won’t have to worry about running out of choices. This time though I have turned them from sunglasses (as I used them in blog #514) to regular glasses. Being able to switch them back and forth when I want to is definitely an added bonus.

Most of my look are things that I’ve blogged in previous posts and have had in my closet for a while. I find that if I don’t return to some of my favorite things that it is all just a huge waste in the end and whether I have received it as a blogger pack or if I have purchased it myself it still is like taking a handful of money and setting it ablaze.

There were a lot of items in my last post which makes this a little bit easier on the eyes as I begin to wrap this up I realize that trying to feature too many things in one blog post can be overwhelming and once in a while having things be more simplistic can be a good thing. Also I do like creating scenes and taking photos that are not always entirely dark in nature as with this I tried to capture the mood of my surroundings with the best possible light.

That is all I have for this post but check back to see what I’m up to next and I thank anyone who comes by and takes a look! Until our paths cross again, onto the next conversation…
