[#395] In A World Of Human Wreckage

When I’m lost and I’m found
and I can’t touch the ground
I’m plowed into the sound…

Plowed” – SpongeListen

This is the last weekend of the Indie Teepee event and I hope you’ve been able to get there and enjoy all the sights and sounds as well as shopping that the event has to offer. This is my last post covering the event and I hope that you agree with me that it is going out with a bang. The item I chose to feature here is a fun one, and considering I don’t do decor (or landscaping) items very much I thought it might be one of those times where I snuck one in. While I didn’t create everything you see in the background, that would go to the wonderful sim known as Netherwood. I just provided a little extra touch to complete my idea/theme.

Most of my overall look remains the same from the last few posts but I am featuring a new skin by Modulus which you will be able to find at the Mesh Body Addicts Fair that just recently started.

The next photo you are about to see is an overview shot of the BROKEN BOY giant doll by NOMAD. I submerged it in water as if it was a part of an old civilization from long ago that has simply been left dormant and decaying around what has come after it. I really liked this shot too much to edit it into the secondary features shot so I left it as was originally shot.

I‘d like to thank everyone from the event coordinator down to all the artists, speakers, musicians, and item creators that took part in Indie Teepee. This is truly one of the most unique events out there and I am seriously proud to have been associated with it as a blogger; I look forward to next years event. Here’s the full credits for those of you who are eagerly awaiting to know what took part in this photo shoot. Make sure when you hit these stores and events you grab demos and happy shopping! I’ll see you again soon but until then, stay stylish fellas!

EYES⊱ MESANGE – Wicked Game Eyes @ M.O.MNEW
FACE⊱ Modulus – Giles Skin – Cream @ Mesh Body Addicts FairNEW

This handsome devil is just the latest from my sponsor in Modulus. Giles comes in six tones (I am featuring Cream here). Also included is a eyebrow shaper and a body shape (which I did not use for this shoot). This is part of a new era of skins by the brand and if this is any indication, good things are in store for the M-Bare division of Modulus.

CARDIGAN⊱ /Ascend/ Hiroshi Cardigan w/Shirt – Gray

This item was a holdout from the July round of The Men’s Department that I was able to find a look to compliment it with. Even though the weather for me in the real world is a bit warm yet, it’s not something I have to worry about in-world. I like how it is paired with the shirt perfectly and has a good flow to it without looking constricted. Sizes available in the package are for Adam, Belleza, Signature, and SLink and also include a HUD to color change the t-shirt if you choose to go with another color.

SHORTS⊱ RIOT / Emery Denim Shorts @ Mesh Body Addicts FairNEW

It’s a back to back entry with another new item from one of my sponsors in RIOT. I have the privilege of reviewing these slightly rolled up shorts which have worn elements and threading that is also worn and frayed. In this FATPACK there are a ton of different options for denim and at least a dozen different choices for the threading. You can purchase single denim colors but if you like variety it is very practical to go with the FATPACK. Sizes you can find in the package include Adam, Belleza, Signature, and SLink.

DOLL⊱ NOMAD // BROKEN BOY @ Indie TeepeeNEW

NOMAD never disappoints me when they release an item that catches my eye, which is why I chose this item as part of my blogger product reviews for Indie Teepee. I really get the feel that this large doll was inspired somehow by the Fallout games and also reminds me of something personally. Many may be way too young to remember Big Boy restauarants or have ever had them in their area. It was pretty big in the midwest and outside them was a huge doll in a similar style holding a hamburger. At first I tried to find a post apocalyptic location to shoot at but I could not find any that I was able to put this item down at but I do feel that it turned out nicely as it ended up.

Le Poppycock *La Di Da* B (Make Good)

This pose set is one I had stored away from a while back from an event and when I was looking for something I thought would fit, I found it in my unused poses but I am glad that I was able to because I do enjoy Le Poppycock and their poses. Check them out if you are needing poses because there is just about something for everyone.

[#394] Nobody Loves No One

No, I don’t want to fall in love (this girl is only going to break your heart)
with you, with you

Wicked Game” – Chris IsaakListen

After having seen so many wonderful photos being taken at Surfers Bay, I decided to see what it was like for myself. Now I have to give you a little disclaimer before you click the link down in the credits if you want to check it out for yourself. It is a beach sim that allows you to wear beach attire or you can go in the buff if you are daring enough. There is also a fee to get into the beach area but it really nicely put together so I didn’t see much harm to pay a fee so that I could get a really good shot with the theme I was working with.

My secondary shot which you’ll see below was actually a retake because I felt like I didn’t get as good of a view of the main product I was trying to feature. I honestly feel like this shot turned out better than the primary one. Don’t get me wrong though I like how they both turned out, just the second one is a bit better after a little touching up. Of course you can form your own opinions of which you like better.

Most of the credits are the same from the last post I did so if you want to see what my thoughts were, I encourage you to check back to it to see what I had to say. There are two new items in this look from the Men Only Monthly and Indie Teepee events. If you do go to these places…grab demos before making a purchase because you’ll be happy you did. That’s all that I have this time so thank you for taking the time to look and as always, stay stylish fellas!

EYES⊱ MESANGE – Wicked Game Eyes @ M.O.MNEW

One of the main reasons I chose the theme I did for this entry were these eyes. The name alone reminds me of the song and I thought that since I like being diverse with my choices for themes and music that I would take a run with this. There are 15 different color eyes that you can purchase (either singly or as a FATPACK). Included are mesh eyes and a HUD to change the size of the pupil as well as a HUD for Omega enabled eyes for those of you that have them. As with all the products in the MESANGE line, they are vivid and look really well when photographed.

TRUNKS⊱ RIOT / Moby Swim Shorts @ Indie TeepeeNEW

This awesome bit of swimwear comes as a review copy from my sponsor, the RIOT brand which is a part of the Indie Teepee event (which I am also grateful to have as a sponsor). One of the reasons I love this brand is the amount of choices available to you as well as easy to use HUDs. You have a choice of buying single colors but there are just so many great combinations that at a reduced price, getting them all seems like a great idea. There are three parts to them that can be color changed in the FATPACK, but if you get a single color only the trim and the side panels can be colored via HUD. The detail on the side panels give the effect of scales like on a fish which is very cool. Sizes included for this product are Belleza, Signature, SLink, and TMP respectively. If you haven’t been to Indie Teepee it would be a great opportunity to before they close up for the year on the 6th of August.

[#392] And I Ran…I Ran So Far Away

Reached out a hand to try again
You’re slowly disappearing from view
Appearing from my view

I Ran (So Far Away)” – A Flock Of SeagullsListen

I thought I would do a fun little entry this time and poke a little bit of fun at the 80’s genre which was a part of my childhood. Looking back on a lot of it and seeing how trends and things are now it kinds of makes me chuckle a little bit.

Two of the items featured in the photo today really helped inspire the theme and I got them from Indie Teepee (which I am a proud blogger for) and from The Epiphany event.

I‘m not sure if those of you that follow the blog ever take a look at the song choices that go along as theme inspiration but I encourage you to click the link the the video and for the younger crowd experience what was big at that time in music and style. You’ll also notice in the full credits below that there was not a pose used for this scene. The keytar has an animation HUD which makes it glow and has sounds and animations for you to jam out to; with careful patience I managed to snap a still photo without needing any kind of posing which for me is very rare.

With all that out of the way, down below is all that you need to know about this post and as always I encourage you to get demos of things first so that you know whether or not it is the right thing for you. Have a great shopping experience and maybe I’ll see you out there. Until the next time as always, stay stylish fellas!

HAIR⊱ Exile – Judd (Gift / Not Available)

This item was a gift set out for those visiting the Hair Fair, as of now it is not available in the store but if it does get sold as a product, you’ll definitely be told in an update of this post or in a future one.

EYES⊱ MESANGE – Kaua’i Eyes Mini Pack ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ The Hidden Chapter

This special set of 5 colored eyes is a part of the second half of The Chapter Four which is called The Hidden Chapter. This is where creators like MESANGE offer extra items that were not a part of the regular event. These eyes are being sold at a discount while at the event so if you are interested go check them out as once the event is over and they are placed in the main location, the price will go up.

OUTFITGizzA – Owen Blazer Suit [Smoke-Aqua]

This suit (which is one whole mesh) was perfect for the 80’s look I wanted to achieve. I had purchased it initially at a previous round of TMD where it kind of got pushed into my closet and it wasn’t until I was putting this look together that I remembered it. Once I put it on and changed a few things on the included HUD, it all came together. Sizes included for the suit are Signature, Standard Sizes (XS-XL), SLink, and TMP.

KEYTAR⊱ BALACLAVA!! Keytar ZERO-W ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Indie Teepee

Nothing is more 80’s than a keytar. Many of the musicians from back then had these in their repertoire of instruments and were prominently featured in many a music video. I thought this was a very clever item for Balaclava to create, as many of their great items have a bit of quirkyness to them. As I had briefly mentioned above, this item comes with a HUD that you can use to animate your avatar and it also has included sounds that you can take hours to discover. A great item and while you are at it, check out some of the events while at Indie Teepee. There’s so much to do and see there!

BACKDROP⊱ MINIMAL – Illusion III – *4* ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ The Epiphany

When I remembered having had a neon type backdrop I had to look no further than this item. #4 in the Illusion III backdrop gacha set. MINIMAL does a very good job with detail on their backdrops and one thing I can tell you is that a lot of them do have neon inspired elements to them which make them very unique and able to stand out. This was the perfect and last final touch to the photos you see here in this post.

[#389] Music

Hey Mr. DJ put a record on

Music” – MadonnaListen

Are you looking for something exciting to do on the grid that isn’t just shopping related? I’ve got just the thing for you then. The Indie Teepee event starts on the 21st of July and has everything you could ever ask for. Here is a list of just about all of the things you’ll be able to do and see at the event which is going on it’s 3rd year and the way I see it, it’s only going to get better and stronger.

– Almost-daily DJ sets and live performances
– Art installations by Bryn Oh, Nodnol Jameson and CyanideSlushy
– Thematic theatre performances by Guerrilla Burlesque
– Creative Forum
– Shopping
– Fashion show
– Machinima
– Speed dating
– And more to come…

I was granted early access to see what the scenery looked like and I even took a few pics other than the blog picture that you’ll see later in this posting. The photos I took honestly do not do this place justice as you need to come look for yourself and experience some of what Indie Teepee has to offer.

The above photo is the greeting area/landing point to the event, past this line there is magic that awaits you. There are three parcels that are visually stunning and whether or not you are an avid photographer or just like to snap pics in your free time, you’ll want to make sure you capture some memories of yourself and anyone you bring with you (groups of friends are certainly encouraged).

Other important things to mention about the event are:

– The Landing point (providing teleport HUDs and gift bags for the public)
– 3 beautifully designed parcels, each representing one imagined future.
– 2 music stages
– Special set designs for theatre performances
– An amphitheatre for talks
– Photogenic spaces for creating memories

Indie Teepee will run from the 21st of July to the 6th of August. You can find out more about this event from their social media access points which I will provide for you below.

Before I get to the photo I took for the basis of this blog I’m going to post a snippet from the press release for the event that I find very important and a good message. One in which I think makes this an event that helps bring people together through the love of creativity and music as well as art.

“The Indie Teepee of 2017 dares Second Life residents to dream of and thrive in worlds that are possibly to come. While again welcoming live music performances, original mesh designs and the creative forum, Indie Teepee also looks forward to introducing fun, new attractions, such as performance art and social activities.

In this home, there are no strangers, just friends you haven’t met yet.”

I hope you enjoyed learning about this event, I’m going to leave you now with my entry which was also photographed at the Indie Teepee Event grounds. I’ll be back with items from the event in upcoming posts and I look forward to sharing them with you. Until next time, stay stylish fellas.
