[#403] I Am Loco

But sometimes I feel OK
And think I’m unique
You always try to critique
I turn my back on it anyway
Sucker! Punk-ass motherfucker!
I am loco!
Te falta un poco!
To get your ass in a choke-hold!

I Am Loco” – Ill NinoListen

After a small extended holiday weekend I am back with another look but this time I’m pretty much geeking out and doing the nerd thing. I enlisted some help from a friend (in this case victim) and got right to work. I think this would have definitely worked if I had placed it somewhere closer to the San Diego Comic-Con but not everything was in place at that time. I found some extra pieces create this idea as it was in a concept stage for a while. I feel like the theme holds up really well with the visuals albeit rather creepy.

After taking a look through some of my other work, it is safe to say that I have a bit of an obsession for a certain villain in the comics universe and most importantly the Clown Prince of Crime or in this case the Agent of Chaos version. I like to try to find ways to incorporate the visual when I can or come across items that inspire it as you’ll see in the credits below.

Several items are from the Marketplace but were integral parts of putting this scene together. I’ve also managed to get the credits for what my victim was wearing (though not everything is scene in the photos and for that I apologize). Of most of the comic inspired ones I have done, I feel that this one is certainly a favorite and came together as I had hoped. Now I am going to leave you with the credits below so you can maybe do some shopping of your own for photography or role-play needs. Be well and until the next adventure stay fashionable with a song in your soul.

HAIR+elua+ – Demi
HEADCATWA – Shaheen (Bento)
FACESTRAY DOG – MARVIN – TONE 02
TEETH⊱ Mad’ – Dirty Mouth [Tongue+Teeth] ♯ Marketplace

What more can be said other than that an insane criminal is likely to have bad teeth. I wanted to get as close to accurate as I could in this scene with the character from the film. Scouring the marketplace I came across this applier for CATWA and after applying it, I was well on my way to acing the look.

BODYBelleza – Jake

OUTFIT⊱ *IS* Joker ♯ Marketplace

One of the most accurate renditions of this attire that I have seen out there on the grid and on the market. I really like this outfit and the fact that it is fitted for all major male mesh bodies makes it that much greater for fans like me out there. The one thing that was not 100% film accurate were the shoes but I cannot honestly tell you how many people would stare at shoes so that definitely gets a pass. Everything else is very spot on and it comes with a HUD with a makeup applier as well (One for Catwa, and also one for Omega respectively).

GLOVESVRSION LODE 5.0 Male Glove

BACKDROP⊱ ISUKA – We’re All Mad Backdrop ♯ Marketplace

This backdrop is simply amazing. I had seen it around in various places but was unable to purchase it during the event that it was first a part of. I went to their main location and did not seem to find it but luckily I was able to catch it on the Marketplace and my scene was pretty much set. If you like using backdrops in your photos you seriously need to check out this store, they also sell really great tattoos as well. You’ll thank me later!

HAIRTableau Vivant \\ Cricket Hair
HEAD[GA.EG] Evan ♯ NEW

Even though this item is not mine, I can give a little bit of commentary on it. This is the second male bento head release by the [GA.EG] brand and it seems a little smoother than the previous one which was very rugged and more matured. This face is quite handsome and can definitely turn heads (when it’s not being disfigured that is).

FACEGo&See *Louis* Milk
MAKEUPZibska ~ Ballard Makeup

This makeup that was part of the THEREAFTER event (I own this as well but didn’t get the opportunity to blog it…so it’s good that someone else helped me with it) and is very well a good fit for the theme of my scene. Terrorizing people and giving them a bit of a makeover is exactly what an Agent of Chaos would do; I think this would also be the result of it.

BODYSLink – Physique MALE Mesh Body Release 1.2

SHIRTN-Uno – Victor Top // N 9
JEANSN-Uno – Victor Jeans // N 9

I passed these items on as a gift for helping me out for this shoot. They were part of a Gacha from the Men Only Monthly event the round before this current one. They only fit Signature and SLink bodies so I figured that since the victim primarily wears the SLink Physique body that it would work better for him.

[#401] Where Do We Go From Here?

I’m not so glad I met you
It makes me want to go away
I touch
Yeah, yeah, yeah…

Where Do We Go From Here?” – FilterListen

Lately it seems I’ve been running back to Netherwood to do shoots because there are just so many places I can go at the location but what helps matters is that if you are a paid group member, you can put down items to help your scene. In this case it was the really cool plane wreckage that I found on the Marketplace. While I am not going to officially credit the item, I am going to give you the link to it here so that you can check it out yourself and some of the other items available.

Most of my items in this entry are not entirely new or from current events but they are from recent rounds of events that make them semi-new. I just can’t label them as new because that would not be telling the truth. In case you were wondering what exactly I consider new when I tag it that way in the credits is if it is currently available at an event or is a recent main store release during the particular month. Once the item is no longer at the event or the month ends I do not consider it to be new.

Most of the outfits I have had on lately I’ve really enjoyed putting together and this one is certainly no different. I managed to find a great hair, awesome clothes, great tattoos, and a good setting to paint a picture. Keep in mind that you should always take demos before buying, broken record or not, I am covering all the bases so you everyone who reads this (male or female) enjoys a great shopping experience and bringing home great clothing and accessories (and furniture in some cases). Time to put this one to bed and ask that you take a look at the credits below and until the next adventure, stay fashionable with a song in your heart.

HAIR⊱ Modulus – Anwar Hair @ Man CaveNEW

When I was thinking of a way to describe this hair it took a while for me to come up with something good until I thought of the fact that it reminded me a little bit of Travis Barker at one point in his blink-182 career. In a way I supposed you could also consider it a punk rock style as well. Either way it is one that I really have enjoyed and it really helped define this look. It comes in several color packs or you can purchase them all for an adjusted price (which if you were thinking of more than one would it be that bad of an idea?)

HAIRBASE/BEARD⊱ .:cheeky:. 3 Days Beard & Hairbase @ M.O.MNEW
HEADCATWA – Shaheen (Bento)
EYESGo&See – Pond

Somehow I managed to let these slip past my radar. These Catwa enabled applier eyes are a bit on the brooding side which is why they appeal to me and made putting them with this look a good choice. There are 10 iris colors to choose from with two versions.

FACE⊱ STRAY DOG – MARVIN – TONE 02 @ TMDNEW
BODYBelleza – Jake
TATTOO⊱ ISUKA Struggle @ Man CaveNEW

When I saw this tattoo while I was browsing around during the opening of the current round of Man Cave I knew deep down I had to have this. A lot of times I tend to neglect tattoos which I know is not fair but sometimes it is hard to find looks to put them with. This was one of those times where I needed something to add a little extra edge to my look. There are three different opacity types and there are appliers for most major mesh bodies.

TANKTOPRazor/// Vice Sleevless Tee – LOS

This tank was a part of last months TMD and I just couldn’t find the right pair of pants to pair it with until I remembered I had the Washed Combat Joggers from REPRESENT which I’ll get to in a second. This graphic tank has regular and worn versions with a graphic that has several different color variations to it so that you can choose what works best for you. What made this promising is that it has a fit for the Belleza body which right now is hands down my favorite; it does come with other sizes as well, SLink, and Signature to name a few.

SWEATPANTSREPRESENT – Washed Combat Joggers “Navy”

I try not to rely too heavily on sweatpants or “joggers” as they are sometimes called but it seems my wardrobe lately has seen its fair share. Though it is good to be able to take a break from shorts or jeans and even dress pants because that kind of thing can bring you at a fashion impasse (or at least I think so). These come fitted for the usual mesh bodies but I would still suggest making sure you try them before purchasing just in case.

SHOES[VALE KOER] HEATUP SNEAKERS

Easily one of my top 5 favorite shoe designers as I’ve probably stated in past entries (I am more likely to say top 3 without hesitation). The fact that you can purchase a FATPACK for the price of what two single pairs of shoes might cost and have the ability to nearly unlimited customization makes it a no brainer. It is good that the Belleza body has the ability to work with SLink feet until designers start to release products for it outight. That way I can still wear the body and still continue wearing some incredible footwear.

Imitation – Miguel

When a new pose maker comes across my radar I usually check them out just to see if they are going to have something that is going to catch my attention/interest. I came across the Imitation brand while doing a walk through of FI*Friday (Fifty Five Linden Friday). The poses looked good and for the price at the time seemed like a great deal. I am really impressed with the brand and have since purchased more poses (I believe they are also a part of the Animosity Pose brand as well) that I’ll be using coming up in future posts. Keep an eye out for this brand if you are looking for nicely made poses for guys because they are done very well.

[#393] I’ve Created My Own Prison

A lion roars in the darkness
Only he holds the key
To free me from my burdens
and grant me life eternally

My Own Prison” – CreedListen

After all the fun I had with the last entry and being goofy/nerdy, I am back doing my regular thing for this current post. I caught a new location to shoot at and found a nice little spot that fit an idea I have had for some time. Featuring items from the Hipster Men’s Event as well as the newly stocked SaNaRae, there is plenty to get you ready to run out the door and shop til you drop.

I normally do not do photos with as dark of backgrounds as this but when I was playing around I thought the shadows with the use of LUMIPro just made the mood exactly the way I wanted it. I feel the finished effect with post-processing turned out nearly as good as I had pictured in my head.

Sometimes I feel that I am a broken record when I encourage those reading to grab Demo’s but it’s definitely something that I think people should do so that they do not waste their hard earned money on something they will grow to dislike or that does not fit as they might think it should. I am going to leave you with the full credits on what was involved in these photos and hope to see you back again for my next adventure. Until then as always, stay stylish fellas!

HAIRDura – B&G79-MIX A

A remnant from the July round of The Men’s Dept, this latest release from Dura put them back on my radar for hair. Not every style they put out is right for how I feel about my look but this reminds me a little of the 90’s which is a bit part of me in the real world. This hair has several different HUDs for the various shades but also available are two MIX HUDs with combos of each of the other tones. Kind of like two mini FatPacks in a sense.

HEADCATWA – Shaheen (Bento)
EYESGo&See *Night*

A previous release at Men Only Monthly, these CATWA eye appliers are really great for doing darker photography as they capture what eyes look like being in the dark or being out at night. There are 10 different eye tones to choose from in one complete HUD. These could easily be used for your role-playing needs as well.

FACE⊱ ::LV:. Nathan – Pearl/02 ♯ Marketplace
BEARDY-U: BRYAN “BRN” ♯ NEW

There’s no surprise that I like facial hair as a part of my look. It has been something that has always been a part of my look in both worlds for as long as I can remember because it suits me better in my estimation. With a HUD for Omega enabled heads as well as tattoo layers for standard avi’s, there are 6 different tones from your typical hair colors to some nontraditional looks (Wild and Ice). If you are looking for a beard that is very kept and styled this is worth taking a look at.

BODYBelleza – Jake
TATTOO⊱ BODY MOD – Black Roses Tattoo @ SaNaRaeNEW

If not for the great sim build alone, heading to SaNaRae is a trip on your shopping list you should make time for. With great items such as this tattoo, which had me with the roses on the upper chest. BODY MOD certainly has my eye as well though I don’t really feature tattoos as often as I’d like. This could be more of a reason to in the future.

PANTS⊱ [Gild] Tight Sarrouel Sweat Pants – White @ Hipster Mens EventNEW

A return trip to the Hipster Men’s Event landed me these excellent jogging/sweat pants. They are just the right bit of casual and comfort but also look cool to wear out of the house. They include sizes for the preferred male bodies including the latest, Belleza “Jake”.

SANDALS⊱ {kokoia} Alessio
RING⊱ BJEWLA – BDay FR Ring ♯ Free Gift

After seeing an ad for this item as well as being someone who likes jewelry, rings especially, I found myself taking a trip to check it out. I will warn you though that you land on the ground of where the store is so as long as you are not afraid of heights or get airsick, you’ll have to fly up to the store to retrieve your prize. For me it was extremely worth it in the long  run. It’s a great bento ring and is a very good quality gift from a store that is just starting to get going on the grid.

Brush It Off” – Plan ThreeListen

I know it’s been a bit longer than I would have liked between my last posting and this one but things out in the real world seemed to have grabbed hold a little tight as they have been as of late but I still have the desire to bring you great visuals with style and fashion. In this entry I am bringing you a few Marketplace items and giving you a quick look at Summerfest ’17 before it ends on the 20th, as well as newer events such as the Hipster Men’s Event and returning for a new round: The Epiphany. Time to give you the dish on what I’m wearing in this look!


HAIR⊱ Exile – Walking the Wire ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Summerfest ’17

Exile is one of the few hair stores that rarely if ever disappointment me and their item for this years Summerfest is no exception. The fact that the name aligned with the idea of what I wanted to do with my visuals makes it that much better. A nicely combed back look is very handsome and well kept. You have a little bit of time left before the beach closes for the year at Summerfest ’17. It runs until the 20th of July so make a mad dash if you haven’t already been there to get your fix.

HEADCATWA – Shaheen (Bento) ♯ ☆NEW
EYESGo&See * Land *
FACE⊱ ::LV:. Nathan – Pearl/02 ♯ Marketplace
BEARDNivaro – Rough
BODYBelleza – Jake
SHAPE⊱ HF – Shape Edward ♯ Marketplace

SHIRT⊱ ExalteD – T-Shirt Jersey {Blue} ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Hipster Men’s Event

One of the reasons I like this item is that it’s a well made sports shirt that isn’t trying to be fancy with crazy colors or designs. It’s simple and the kind you would wear when you’re relaxing on the weekend. It’s fitted for the popular mesh bodies which means just about any guy out there on the grid can wear it and look stylish and cool.

JEANS⊱ M.NA: Meraki ♯ Marketplace

These jeans were a part of a past event but like some items seemed to have gotten set aside in my closet for the right moment. While there is not a main store for Mirage NA in-world, they do have this item up on the Marketplace. It’s a small growing store but I hope to see more from them in the future. Sizes included are Signature, SLink, and TMP but with the use of alphas, I was able to make it work for the Belleza body as well without issue. These jeans also have a special use but I’ll leave that for you to discover on your own if you choose to look into this product further.

SHOES⊱ -NOeditiON- SuperStar (SLink M) Blue COMMON ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ The Epiphany

That time is once again upon us, the magic of The Epiphany is back to enchant our wallets. What I like about this event is that unlike most Gacha events that you play a machine a billion times just to get one little item and are left with a bazillion extras, you can turn those in for prizes that you can only get while the event is running. NOeditOn is offering a slick sneaker based off of one of the most classic shoes of all time. The SuperStar sneakers are offered in sizes for the ladies and for Signature and SLink for the fellas. There are 15 different colors you can with with chance to also win the white “Classic” and one that has a HUD to change the shoe with all the colors available in the set along with black which are both the RARE items in the machine. I really love these sneakers and they are definitely for that laid back casual guy.


. Infiniti . – Walk the Line (02) ♯ Marketplace

The cherry on top of the sundae for this entry. It helps create a visual within one of the lyrics of the song chosen to be the theme of the entry. It comes with a pose prop of wires but also has the singles poses included so you can use it freely with any setting you choose. Very well put together which makes me extremely happy I found it to be able to use in this visual.

Coming up in the some of my future postings will be coverage of a really cool event called Indie Teepee which starts on the 21st of July as well as the most current round of Men Only Monthly on the 20th. I look forward to bringing you coverage of these events and other great stores; I also encourage you to take a look at the items, stores, and events featured in this post as well. Remember to take demos for a happy shopping experience. I’ll see you over on the next one but until then as always, stay stylish fellas!

[#387] It’s All About The Pentiums Baby!

Wanna be hackers? Code crackers? Slackers?

It’s All About The Pentiums” – “WeirdAl YankovicListen

I decided that I’d dip into the nerd pool for this post and channel some of the inner me that was lurking around. I found some really cool items to put this look together, with some of them new and some of them just items I had laying around. This turned out to be a really fun and inspired shoot from one of the most hilarious parody musicians of all time, “Weird” Al Yankovic. I’m not going to be like one of thos Chat Room Yakker’s he talks about so I’m going to get right to the breakdown of what you see here.


HAIRlock&tuft – ruined

This item first showed up at a previous round of ROMP. While it ended up getting lost in my closet for a moment, this nice neck lenght hair was just the thing to start creating my hunky nerd look. The box comes with two different versions (the one you see here and one with a blindfold with written words you can choose via a HUD). There are also three color packs but can also be bought as a FATPACK if you can’t pick just one and save yourself some money.

HEADCATWA – Shaheen (Bento) ♯ ☆NEW

EYES⊱ Go&See * Land * ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ M.O.M

The second of three eye releases from Go&See that you can check out at Men Only Monthly. This 10 eye color set is mostly earth tones (shades of brown) but with a little bit of blue and purple thrown in as well. These eyes are for Catwa eyes only so for those of you that aren’t using those and like these eyes you may want to look into the Catwa eyes.

FACE⊱ ::LV:. Nathan – Pearl/02 ♯ Marketplace

Normally I’m not fond of buying skins from the Marketplace nor am I comfortable with it but I’m slightly familiar with Lee Valentine’s work and saw and adverstisement for this skin that sent me to look at the demo for it and when I found out it was compatible with Stray Dog body appliers it was all but a done deal. I really just like how this looks with the Shaheen head and the shape that I also found on Marketplace which I’ll get to in a moment or so.

BEARD⊱ Beausame // Beard V23 ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ TMD

As I was browsing through The Men’s Department I came across the set of beards by Beausame and thought that maybe it would fit my look if not just for this post but for more day to day purposes. I had also considered using this beard for a John Wick inspired photo session which may still happen but we’ll have to see how things flow creatively.

BODYBelleza – Jake

SHAPE⊱ HF – Shape Edward ♯ Marketplace

From the mind of fellow blogger, Jos Crumb, this shape was somewhat of a test for me because I’m really picky about things like this and with there not being an available demo to see what it might look like with different skins it was something of a gamble but I feel it paid off. I like the facial features as well as the body part of it as well as I’m not super tall nor am I built like a tank. I think that with Mr. Crumb being a blogger he understand things a bit better so kudos to him. Check out the link to this item up above but be warned there are limited quantities and also visit his MP store for other excellent shapes.

SHIRT+TIE⊱ -Belleza- Nathan Shirt ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ M.O.M

After the celebrated release of the Jake body, Tricky Boucher and the Belleza brand are at it again. The “Nathan” shirt (that comes with options for tucked and untucked as well as a tie in three colors) is just the thing for the nerd in us all or just someone who wants a cool dress shirt. I couldn’t decide which of the colors to choose so naturally I bought the FATPACK because it was a great deal and now I have options for when I need something like this for a social setting or even another photo session.

JEANS[Deadwool] Broberry Jeans – Revenge EXTRA ♯ ☆NEW

The collaboration between [Deadwool] and Blueberry that has the world in an uproar. Two different versions made for males and females, these jeans really do kick butt. There’s a regular leg and also rolled up leg version for those who may want to wear hi-tops with their jeans without the fear of having them clip through (and we all know that’s a bit annoying). With sizes for Belleza, Signature, SLink, TMP and Standard Fitmesh it covers just about all of the bases for mesh bodies and takes the excuse of getting them off the table. Also if you feel adventurous and dare to buy the FATPACK, you get an extra pair of jeans not sold seperately. I chose the WASH version there is also a standard denim version which is almost tempting enough to go back for…maybe I will!

SHOES[Deadwool] Chase Sneakers

An item I’ve previously covered on the blog but thought it would be great to pair them with the Jeans to stay within the same brand and also because they look pretty cool together. That’s about all that I have to say about these shoes other than go check them out!

GLASSESBALACLAVA – Kip Glasses (Black)

One of my old standby pair of specks, they come with several options (one with the tape and one without) and have gotten plenty of use over time and felt like a great addition to my nerd look.

OFFICE[Toiz] Gray Office Skybox

Once a Gacha machine featured at Shiny Shabby by the now re-branded CMYK store, this office skybox was the perfect setup for what I wanted to do and it was already just sitting in my cluttered mess waiting to be used. Sometimes gacha items end up going into the abyss to die but it was great being able to pluck it out and give it life in this photograph.

DECOR⊱ [Bad Unicorn] Shoreditch Startup ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ TMD

Seeing this set at The Men’s Department really made my day. I thought it was super detailed and was the cherry on top of the sundae with the setting and theme I was going for. What’s cool about this set (which you can buy in pieces but it’s way too awesome to not just buy the full set) is that you can change the clock on the computer. The chair which you can see a little bit in the photo has poses in it which I’m sure at some point I will because it’s so well made.


IE – Mellow V1 (5) ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Square 1

Several posts ago I featured a pose from the V2 set of the Mellow poses from Image Essentials. Both sets have varying sit poses that can be used in a multitude of ways (such as on furniture that does not have poses). You can take a look at the pose sets at the Square 1 Event which the transporation to is located just above this paragraph.

I hope you’ve enjoyed viewing this entry as I did creating it and maybe it will inspire you in some way. Take a trip to the locations of the stores and events featured here and have a great shopping experience. Until the next time, stay stylish fellas!

[#383] So Follow The Leader Down

You feelin’ blue now
I think you bit of more than you can chew
And now it’s time to make a choice
And all I want to hear is your…

Seein’ Red” – Unwritten LawListen

post383_01post383_02

After taking a small breather from shopping, I managed to come up with scene that features items from the Man Cave Event as well as Men Only Monthly. I found everything I needed at those two places to come up with an idea to set to the song “Seein’ Red” by Unwritten Law.

I also have an item from this past weeks Fifty Linden Friday, the “Renegade” hair from Lock & Tuft. It seems lately there is a trend of sweeping mid-length hair hanging off to one side of the head or another and Lock & Tuft have managed to capitalize on it. Of course with it being a bargain it caught my attention but I think even at a regular price it’s worth giving some attention to.

The “Ocean Eyes” by GO&SEE are something to behold. The variations of blue and green hues in the 10 colors offered really do depict the differnt types of water you might find in a large body such as an ocean. For those of you with Catwa eyes this truly is a must. Gazing into these could be very dangerous if not mesmerizing. You can find these right now at Men Only Monthly until the 15th of July.

Gabriel is offering an outfit that consists of a jacket and slacks at ManCave. The “Denim Zip” Jacket is an open basic styled jacket that fits nicely but I find that what would make it better is an added shirt with a texture HUD to give a little more variety. While it’s fun to walk around without a shirt like you don’t have a care in the world, it limits the amount of places you might want to wear it to. While I am wearing this is Light Gray, you also have 3 other color options to choose from.

Coordinating with the jacket are the “Cotton Pants” which are your standard but comfortable casual slacks. Great for going out for a night on the town or getting together with colleagues. There are three colors to choose from (Black, Sand, and White). Both items from Gabriel come with sizes for Belleza, Signature, SLink, and TMP mesh bodies and can be purchased in FATPACKS as well for those that want to mix and match their styles.

Completing my casual look are the “Hayan Slip On” shoes from [Z O O M]. These laceless loafer type shoes are a great addition to your wardrobe. They are stylish and come with a HUD that allows you to color change the different parts of the shoe for that extra customization that if you are like me, you are going to love. I’m wearing the Signature version but also included are a SLink version as well as Unrigged for those of you with different mesh body choices.

One of my fave items I picked up at Man Cave is the “Bathroom Pub Outside” backdrop by 220mL. It is a product by a brand that I’ve seen nothing but quality out of and I’ve used others and have nothing but good things to say. The textures and build give you that feeling as if you are actually standing outside the bathroom at a pub and in the case of this scene, waiting to catch someone in the act of doing something dubious. Props like this have somewhat changed my mind on using them compared to visiting a sim with pre-built settings. I’m becoming a photographer that is split 50/50 on this topic because of well made items like this.

I encourage you to visit these events and the stores featured and grab demos and find what suits you best. Enjoy the full style credits below and happy shopping. Until next time as always, stay stylish fellas!

[#377] Just A Little Patience

I sit here on the stairs
‘Cause I’d rather be alone
If I can’t have you right now
I’ll wait, dear

Patience” – GunsN RosesListen

It seems that lately I haven’t been posting as much as I have been known to do but perhaps it is because I’m in a little bit of a creative slump that I am working through. It seems anyone who is worth their grain in salt knows that it’s not always easy to get things from their head into whatever medium they are working with. This could be said for me. I did manage to come up with a classic tune for the theme of this look, also sort of a play on words if you are able to make a connection through the photos.

There is a little bit of everything that went into the look for this photo session with some great events that are still going for a bit longer and also some new hunts for those of you who are interested in them, and to be honest they are really pretty fun.

I’ll start off with the skin I’m wearing. “Arthur” can be found at the Stray Dog main location as part of the Destination of Hope hunt which is in conjunction with the Relay for Life Charity. If you are unfamiliar with RFL, they are a charitable organization which centers around raising funds for cancer research. While Gac Akina, the owner of Stray Dog and other great creators are putting out their items for this hunt for only 10L, I encourage you to at least donate extra to RFL. It’s for a good cause and if my donation or yours can at least contribute to helping one person then what is there to lose? Getting back to “Arthur” it comes in the 02 Tone only and has separate HUDs for a skin with brows and one without. Each skin comes with a freckle applier as well for those of you who have them or want to have them.

A new round of TMD has started but as I was looking for items in my “closet” I came across the Mind Carlberg set which contains a shirt as well as underwear but considering I wanted to wear more than just that I chose to leave the undies behind. The colorway I chose for this set was the Pink/Cream set which comes with a HUD that you can choose either pink sleeves and a cream shirt base or vice versa. I like roses so it seemed like a logical choice for me.

Also from last months TMD (I just missed the cutoff by a few days…isn’t that always the case?) are the L&B Swear “Salvage Denim Jeans”. I am finding for the value of the fullpack you get so many more choices then buying one single denim color. As with many of the latest L&B Swear releases, these jean shorts come with an exclusive set of denims found only in the fatpack. I love how these look and they fit exactly how they should. Sizes included in the package are: Aesthetic, Classic Fitmesh, Gianni, and SLink Physique.

ULTRA is still going strong until the 15th of June and they are having their Anniversary round. There are many different goodies you can find there and I managed to come across the “Flash Pump Trainers” by [VALE KOER]. These are reminiscent of the pump style shoe that were popular during the 90’s but with a little more modern updated flair. This is another brand that I tend to always purchase full packs of because the customizations on them is out of this world. You could literally not wear the same combination style twice unless you wanted to. Included sizes in the package are: Belleza, Maitreya, and SLink (for the gals) and Gianni, SLink, and TMP (for the fellas) as well as Unrigged for Standard sized avatars.

Pseudo is one of the backdrop creators that I have a love/hate relationship with. Don’t get me wrong, the quality is over the top which is what I love about them but the thing I hate about their gacha machines is that I never have an easy time getting complete sets so some of them are incomplete. Back in April they had a really great set that I finally am getting a chance to use one from. It’s called the “Back Exit Scene” which looks to take place at the back of a building where there is a door and a bit of Banksy type graffiti thrown in for that extra something. I combined that with a pose from the “And So On” Set A from Le Poppycock that you can find at the current round of Men Only Monthly.

I think I’ve just about covered everything involved in the process of completing this post. Down below are the full credits with taxis to take you to each location of the item. Keep in mind that you should always try Demo’s when available just so there is never any doubt left behind. I bid you good shopping and until next time, stay stylish fellas!
