[#419] Carry Your Torches

Bring on your forces of nature
Bring on the storm that’s raging
And if you get lost in the shadows
There’s a fire inside you
Be the light that guides you

Torches” – X AmbassadorsListen

This scene was originally meant to be done as a part of my Halloween series but as fate would have it the timing was moved back due to several reasons. I usually post things that are a bit October like all throughout the year as the spirit of it doesn’t confine me to just one month and I firmly believe that.

For this scene I went on location and took my photos at the Stars Hollow In Omnia Paratus, which is maintained by a good friend who has opened it to the public until the 11th of November. If you are looking for a great fall place to take photos and explore then this place is for you. There is even a haunted house section still up for those of you who want to do some post Halloween celebration such as I have. The taxi for this location is below in the credits section.

In this entry there are promotional copies of items provided by Avi-Glam, Cold-Ash, and Go&See. I think putting these items together really set the tone for the overall feeling of the scene and I hope you agree.

The Avi-Glam and Cold-Ash items are available right now at the current round of Men Only Monthly, which runs through the 15th of November. There are many great items for your closet at the event and I encourage you to invest some time to take a look.

Go&See’s item was a part of The Dark Style Fair 5 which was open until the 4th of November and this entry was in 3/4 stage completion and was meant to be posted before the end of the event to which I sincerely apologize. Things sometimes are out of our control such as this was. I am also providing the taxi below to their store location as event releases are moved to the store within a day or so of the said event ending.

Stay tuned for more coverage from Men Only Monthly as well as new monthly rounds of The Men’s Department and FaMESHed. From some of the previews of items I’ve seen across social media, I’ll be looking to dig into some of them to put my personal spin on.

Thank you to those of you who came to visit the site from wherever you may have seen the link on social media or by word of mouth. I hope to see you again for the next adventure!

Onto the next conversation…

HAIRExile: Alternate Ideas
HEADCATWA – Daniel
EYESGo&See * Hurt * @ The Dark Style Fair 5NEW (Ends 11/4)

One of the things I can count on when it comes to Go&See when they release a set of eyes is that they are going to be thought out and creative. These Catwa only appliers give the appearance that the wearer has been possibly punched or is suffering from a sort of disease. There are several ways it can be taken. There are four different colors to choose from and excellent for setting up creepy or apocalyptic scenes as well as for use in role-play situations.

FACE⊱ AG. Connor Skin @ M.O.MNEW

Avi-Glam is back with a new face for Catwa heads, which for this I am using Daniel as I believe that is what they had in mind for use with this facial skin. I feel like it has a bit of a youthful ethnic look which is becoming increasingly present in-world as it should. Diversity is what helps everyone have a more unique identity and ensure we are not all looking like robots on an assembly line.

BODYBelleza – Jake

SHIRT{COLD-ASH} VINCENT Shirt&Waistcoat @ M.O.MNEW

There are so many good things I could say about this shirt/vest combination but if I did you would check out from all the rambling so I’ll keep it brief. I really had this Van Helsing or Johnathan Harker vibe with this that essentially the scene I photographed is like one of them out in the darkness looking for creatures of the night. The included HUD has 3 different colors for the shirt and 6 different choices for the vest.

One thing I would have done differently (that does not take away from the value of the product) would be to come out with more choices for colors in both the shirt and vest. The product is great even with the lack of more colors and maybe it is better the way it is. Perhaps having too many choices would detract from the product.

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

Aside from wardrobe and setting, one of the most important pieces to the scene was this pose and prop set. The lantern helped set the visual of walking vulnerable in the darkness searching for the unknown a lot easier to take from concept to finality. This was a Fifty Linden Friday item a few weeks ago and I had missed out on it then but the regular price of it when I did purchase was not bad and is definitely something that can be used again in future works.

[#416] Not Meant For Me

The jury is coming
coming to tear me apart
all this bitching and moaning
Come on, it’s on!

Not Meant For Me” – Jonathan DavisListen

This my first Halloween inspired scene for 2017 and I feel like I’m starting off strong. This is intended to be a two part post in which the second will come within the next week as a collaboration with some fellow blogger friends of mine. I’m not going to give away all the details because I want to garner some interest for readers to come back to take a look.

Ever since I was younger I had a fascination with vampires and their myths. From television shows such as Dark Shadows and Moonlight to films like Salem’s Lot, The Lost Boys, and 30 Days Of Night as well as classic novels by Bram Stoker and Anne Rice featuring titillating characters of the undead variety. I have always been drawn to the stories of their struggle and romanticism behind them. A lot of people love these pop culture icons that have withstood the test of time itself.

This particular photo session was inspired by “The Queen of The Damned” film starring Stuart Townsend and the late Aaliyah. I was fortunate enough that the LeLutka Andrea bento head comes with a pair of fangs to help me complete my look.

The scene was shot on location at a friend’s Haunted House which will be opening soon but is not yet completed which is why at this time I won’t be providing a taxi as it is not yet open to the public. When it does become available I will give you an update in a future entry.

Brands contributing review copies for this post include Go&See with the “Robin” shape and “Christian” skin (which I have shown in previous posts) as well as MESANGE with their “Arden Eyes” that I’ve also displayed in previous entries.

This particular post has a heavy presence from the Hipster Men’s Event and also The Men’s Department. Upcoming coverage is going to include the new round of Men Only Monthly as well as Shiny Shabby and The Epiphany. I intend to visit some others as well that I hope to utilize products from.

I hope you enjoyed joining me in this adventure and I will be back again soon with another installment. Below are the styling credits with transportation to the stores and events all products can be found at.

Onto the next conversation…

HEADLeLutka – Andrea v 3.1
EYES⊱ MESANGE – Arden Eyes @ Hipster Men’s EventNEW
FACEGo&See * Christian *
BODYBelleza – Jake
SHAPE⊱ Go&See * Robin * Lelutka Bento @ M.O.MNEW

This is the first shape created for the LeLutka Andrea head by Go&See. While I am wearing their “Christian” skin, I’ve found that several other Go&See skins work just as well with it and I am sure with other experimenting other brands could work as well. It also comes with a brow shaper and style card for those who want to nab the look out of the box.

SHIRT⊱ etham – Saul Henley @ TMDNEW

For casual clothing lovers, etham is one of those who always knows what products to create for long term wear. As a personal preference, I like long sleeved shirts that do not have collars and this Henley shirt is just the thing. I picked up the Fatpack because the price of it alone is well worth making use of the dozen colors you can change via the included HUD. You can also change the button colors as well for extra functionality.

Compatible with: Belleza, NX-Nardcotix, Signature, SLink, Standard, and TMP male mesh bodies.

JEANS⊱ BlankLine – StandardJeans @ TMDNEW

<K&S> Fearless. Bento Poses 3 (2) @ Hipster Men’s EventNEW

For the second straight month, K&S has released another “Fearless” 3 pose set at Hipster Men’s Event. I’m not sure how long it will continue but I’ve been enjoying these so I do hope that they continue to so I can continue to feature them in my scenes.

[#414] This Hurricane…

The promises we made were not enough
The prayers that we have prayed were like a drug
The secrets that we sold were never known…

Hurricane” – 30 Seconds To MarsListen

With this scene I brought together some things to add a little culture to the entries of These Conversations Kill. After having visited the Matsuri event, it inspired me to put together this look with the things I brought home and some that I already had lurking in my virtual closet.

For those of you who might not be familiar with the Matsuri event, it is an event full of asian centric items including furniture, clothing, poses, and photography aids such as backdrops.

Aside from the event area there is a nice little town to explore as well to further give you an experience. Many of the vendors in the shopping area have a HUD that you can used to collect “stamps” by teleporting to the participating storefronts and after you’ve collected 15 stamps you can return to the event and trade them in for a prize of your choice from one of several designers.

I‘m featuring items from blog sponsors LV Designs and Go&See (whom have a great eye set at The Seasons Story as well as a gift that I’m reviewing in this post). Other creators being shown include Gabriel, Catwa, Belleza, [sYs] and BAMSE.

Shooting this scene was particularly fun for me because I enjoy many aspects of Asian culture past and present. I’ve done scenes in the past as well with it being the theme so it is something I consider to be an interest.

I hope everyone that’s viewing this enjoys what they see and it gives them a reason to take a ride to the Matsuri event as well as a trip to The Seasons Story and the other great places that make up this article.

Another adventure is in the books so I will leave you with the credits and say sayonara for now but check back again soon. On to the next conversation!

HAIRTableau Vivant \\ Eastern Promises Hair

This hair is one I’ve had in hiding for a long time. I am not sure what reason I bought it in the first place but I must have had the notion for using it and now in the present I have found just the right place for it.

HEADCATWA – Dino ♯ NEW

The latest release in the male head collection by creator Catwa Clip, this softer and more ethnic featured face is still just as handsome as the others. This appeals heavily to those out there that have been looking for a diverse looking face.

EYES⊱ Go&See * Fall * (Anniversary Gift) @ The Season’s StoryNEW

Going to an event where creator’s give you gifts just for checking it out? Heck yes! Go&See is offering as a gift for the anniversary edition of The Season’s Story – Fall edition a 4 pack of eyes specifically made for CATWA eyes. These give you just a bit of a preview of the bigger pack of eyes with the same name that is for sale at the event. Very detailed and appealing and worth giving a look.

FACE⊱ ::LV:. Noct Applier – Pearl/02 ♯ MarketplaceNEW

In conjunction with the Catwa “Dino” head, LV Designs has created a skin based off of a character from a well known video game franchise. The skin is compatible with Stray Dog 02 body appliers and also comes packaged with eye and body shapers.

BODYBelleza – Jake

OUTFIT⊱ ::GB::Katakake Haori – Kon-ai @ MatsuriNEW

Personally I am a fan of this type of attire. I think it stems back to different television shows and movies that were located in Asian countries. I also thought it would be cool to be a samurai and learn the art of wielding a timeless weapon but not for reasons of violence. Swordsmanship is much more than that.

Compatible with: Belleza, Signature, SLink, and TMP

SHOES[sYs] ZORI TABI Shoes – Black / White

These have been in my closet for a good while and were also looking for a reason to be brought out and this helped make putting together this wardrobe a lot easier. There are only sizes for classic avi’s in this package, I was able to hide my feet to make it work with the length of the kimono.

DISPLAY:BAMSE: Bushido Display

This was the first piece that started the brainstorming into what you are seeing as the final production. I love learning about swords especially those of asian origin. They are beautifully crafted and not at all clunky like some of the bigger bladed weapons in history. To proudly display this fine creation by BAMSE is certainly an honor for me.

BACKDROP⊱ *bitter vanilla* -4- b.v Kuchinashi (Brown) @ MatsuriNEW

This is one of four different stylized backdrops that can be played for in the gacha machine at Matsuri. There are different color schemes each with accompanying HUD’s to change different parts of the scene. What’s best about this is that you can take the item from the machine to the main location and trade it in for a copy-able version that you won’t have to worry about it being eaten or accidentally deleted and gone for good.


<K&S> Fearless. Bento Poses 2 (2)

This is the second part of a pose set that I used in my last entry. Another three poses that are quite different from those you find in the first set. I really like the set as a whole and hope to find more like this from K&S

[#413] Sympathy For The Devil

Just as every cop is a criminal
and every sinner is a saint
As heads is tails
Just call me Lucifer

Sympathy For The Devil” – The Rolling StonesListen

You might call this my first foray into October theme blogging but it’s not my usual creepy type work but I think I’m saving that for deeper in the month before Halloween but rest assured it is coming. I’ve been use the song choice for this entry as a theme for a while but just couldn’t figure out the right time and place for it but it seems now I have.

For this scene I combined a bit of new items, items I’ve used previously, and things that are recent but not new enough to be given that distinction.

In a second straight entry, I put together several pictures besides my main storytelling photo to give different angles along with close-ups of items that aren’t as clearly seen (which I do to give you a better idea what they look like) so it might help you make a better informed decision on whether or not you may purchase an item.

Sponsors for the blog that are being featured in this post are Avi-Glam and two different items from Go&See. Events that I’ve been to with items being shown here include Shiny Shabby, Men Only Monthly, and The Men’s Department.

In summary I think that I put together a pretty good look that would befit the “Prince of Darkness” and make a pretty handsome devil (I got jokes I know!)

Before I put this entry to bed, just to let all of you know the Men Only Monthly event will close for the current round on the 15th of October so you still have a few days to check it out to see what’s available. Shiny Shabby will also close their current round on the same day which gives you an opportunity to grab a friend or your significant other or whoever you might want to take with you and make a day of shopping.

For those of you that are reading thanks for stopping by and joining me on this adventure or any of my previous others that I’ve been on. I hope that you continue to follow this space as I continue to grow. Now that you’ve patiently waited through my rambling, here are the credits and I bid you adieu for now.

On to the next conversation…

HAIRTableau Vivant \\ Late Hair
HEADCATWA – Stanley

This head has been around a while but this is my first time using it for a scene. Stanley has a more rugged look to him with certain skins and shapes and I’ve been known more for having looks that were less defined. I do certainly like the possibilities of combinations I can work with in the future so I consider this to be a successful experiment.

EYES⊱ AG. Charm Eyes @ Shiny ShabbyNEW
FACE⊱ Go&See * Christian * @ M.O.MNEW
BODYBelleza – Jake
SHAPEGo&See * Stan * Shape

As with using the head for the first time, I am using this shape which was created with Stanley in mind. I also combined it with the newest skin in the Go&See lineup which is at Men Only Monthly. I think it is a great combination and a little different from the majority of looks I go with but doing different things is a challenge that I’ll gladly accept.

JACKETBakaboo – Baka Yakuza Suit – Color B

If you like diverse style as I do then Bakaboo is definitely a brand to keep an eye on. Creator Ocean Blackthorne’s approach at fashion is quite different from anything I’ve experienced. I’ve had my eye on the brand for a while and finally seeing this suit (which is sold separately from the trousers) I knew that I had feature it. Keep in mind that it is classic sizes (XS-XL) but with alpha cuts I am wearing the M size and I think it looks great.

PANTSBakaboo – Baka Yakuza Pants – Color B

The second half of this ensemble and what more can I say that I haven’t already said. The whole outfit together certainly gives a new dimension to formal wear as far as suits are concerned. It’s certainly not plain by any means and definitely draws attention. The sizes are the same as with the suit jacket (XS-XL) and should work with most normal male mesh bodies but try a demo first just to be on the safe side.

SHOES⊱ SEMLLER – SLIP ON @ TMDNEW

Normally I do not write anything about item’s I have previously featured but I did receive an updated version today which changed the layout of the HUD but there are not any new features or colors added.

WINGS⊱ .::Arkan::. Bento Wings + Fitmesh ♯ Marketplace

What better than a pair of wings for a fallen angel? These bento animated wings come with a HUD giving you five color choices so that you’re able to pick what best suits your mood. I like how detailed this product is and it was easy to time my shots with the animations so that made it a lot easier to work with. If you are into fantasy or role-play I’d recommend you check this out as I am very impressed.

BACKDROP[ ISUKA ] Inbetween Backdrop

I needed a darker type background and I know ISUKA is one of my go to brands for backdrops. This stairway and hall combination was perfect for the scene I set up. If you are looking for something great to shoot a picture with there are a variety of different backdrops available at their store. Give them a look and see how your photography can be inspired.


<K&S> Fearless. Bento Poses 1 (3 / 1)

This pose set was originally for sale at the Hipster Men’s Event last month. I couldn’t really find an idea or inspiration where I could use these so I set them aside for when I could. K&S is a brand that I’ve been following for quite a while and have used a small but fair amount of their poses. I always seem to find something from them to use.

[#407] Sober

Mother Mary won’t you whisper
Something but what’s past and done…

Sober” – ToolListen

Grooming myself for the soon to becoming month of October (my favorite month of the year) I decided that I was going to go for something a little spooky. It just simply took finding the right place and placing a simple red balloon for effect and the idea for the theme somewhat fits the visuals (or at least I feel they do to an extent).

Could the person in the scene be in for some nightmares? It’s quite possible and if you’re looking for an interesting spot to explore or take photos and are into macabre scenes then right now is a good time to visit Cerulean Mountain. I just discovered the sim right before I was getting ready to get this scene set up and came to check it out. There are plenty of spots that I’ll look forward to coming back to for future scenes. Products from my sponsors in this look consist of a skin from Go&See that is at the latest round of Men Only Monthly and also once again I am featuring the Byzantium Eyes by MESANGE which can be found at the We Love Role-Play event.

You’ll be able to find a tax for the aforementioned Cerulean Mountain down in the credits below. Also there are items from events such as The Men’s Department and Savoir Fair. Just as usual I encourage that all of you grab demos before you make a purchase. You’ll be a much happier shopper that way and if you see me out there you’ll give me a thumbs up and say “thanks for the heads up fella” (Okay maybe not but it sounded good). That’s all I have for this adventure but be sure to check out upcoming entries they are sure to be exciting as I know I am excited about them already. Stay stylish with a song in your soul and I will catch you on the next one!

HAIRStealthic – Narcotic

This hair was originally at the August round of n21 but I didn’t manage to get it featured until after the event was over. I do like this brand and the fact they give you a choice of different styles in a HUD. Many color packs available to suit just about anyone’s preferences.

HEADCATWA – Daniel (Bento)
EYES⊱ MESANGE – Byzantium Eyes @ We Love RPNEW
EYEBROWS⊱ [theSkinnery] Hallford Brows @ TMDNEW
FACE⊱ Go&See * Christian * @ M.O.MNEW

It’s been quite a while since Kristyna Wikifoo released a male skin for the Go&See brand but as you can see we have a new one that just came out at this current round of Men Only Monthly. 4 different tones to choose from which you can apply to Omega compatible heads. The applier features brow or browless version with each of them also having a facial hair option to them as well. It’s a very handsome skin to take a look into. There is also a shape and eyebrow shaper included for CATWA Daniel which is what it was designed to look best for.

BODYBelleza – Jake

SHIRT7mad;Ravens Dread T-shirt

Nothing but good things can be said about the products that come from Poe Cross and 7mad;Ravens. I’m really happy that products are being released now that fit the Belleza body because for example these are the types of shirts I like to wear in the real world. They have a unique style and draw people’s attention (and not in a negative way). Other sizes that come with this shirt are for Signature and SLink Physique respectively.

JEANS::K:: Slim Fit Jeans Homme Medium
SLIDES⊱ ..::ILLI::.. Slide Sandals – Deluxe @ TMDNEW

The month of September has been a great one for finding items at TMD. While it might be the time in some places in the world to cease wearing footwear like this it’s not something that you need to worry much about (or when you are exploring strange places). These sandals come with a HUD to change the look of different parts of it from the sole to the straps. For those of you who own the Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature, SLink Physique or TMP then these will work for you and there is also an unrigged version for those classic avi’s out there.

GLASSESEarthStones Eyeglasses – The Yesterday

Rounded glasses are probably one of my favorite fashion accessories of all time. I am quite sure that these are patterned after the ones worn by John Lennon which is another reason why I like them so much. Upon clicking on the glasses you get a menu to change the color of the metal frames and also the tint of the lenses which makes for added customization.

Photo Taken @ Cerulean Mountain


Animosity – Quan (3) @ Savoir FairNEW

Here’s another new pose set from new brand, Animosity. This set has poses in which some are to be used with a car prop; there are also different versions of some of the poses as well for different sized avatars.

[#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.
