[#636] Suck My Kiss

 

Hit me you can’t hurt me suck my kiss
Kiss me please pervert me stick with this
Is she gonna curtsey?
Give to me sweet sacred bliss
That mouth was made to…

Red Holt Chili Peppers, ♫Suck My Kiss♫

 

So as I was putting this together I started thinking about how much my avi looked like Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. This of course prompted me to look through their music catalogue for a tune that I could rock to while doing what it is that I do. Being that this is a Vintage Fair post I went back in time to choose a track that I consider exactly that…vintage.

Sure the event is themed pre-80’s but the items that I’m blogging have that feel and the setting does also in a way; besides if I’m emulating Flea in some capacity he has a very old school vibe about him and has remained so mostly through the years. Remember that time he was in “Point Break”? Yeah that’s pretty vintage as well so it’s all relative really.

The post I do for the event are probably the most grueling as far as blogging goes but I have to say they really are a lot of fun and I enjoy them. The challenge that I get from seeing what I can match with what is like a puzzle, which is something I’ve always enjoyed in some form or another.

Poses featuring instruments of any kind always grab my attention and that’s why I picked out the “Guitarhero” pose by WHATEVER as the first one that I blog from the fair. There are 5 different poses to choose from and a vintage Beatlesque guitar prop to help bring it to life. Being a fan of the old Guitar Hero game series it was cool that I kind of in a roundabout way bring this all together as this blog’s soundtrack is featured in the 3rd volume of the game as a co-op unlockable song (there’s my flashing my pop culture video game nerd knowledge on you all!)

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that the guitar will have to be rezzed or edited to get the poses to work together so being proficient at it will come in handy. The guitar mesh is a cool design but the only regret that I have is that the creator didn’t make a version of each to fit the poses as not everyone is great with manipulating the axis points and getting the axis right for the best fit.

If I were to rate this item using a stars system I would give it a 4 to 4.5 out of 5 as I really like the thought behind the poses, I’m only taking away slight points for the fact that guitars for each pose were not included. Everything was nicely done and for those who love doing music themed pics this would easily make your photo rock (bad pun alert!)

A lot of cool musicians have tattoos…even pretend virtual ones right? So another new item from Vintage Fair is INker’s “Liburna Tattoo) that I have the medium opacity applied. Tattoos are not something I’m all that great at describing especially considering a lot of the ones you see are not themed and have many different kinds of phrasing and iconography so I’m going to let the close-up pic speak for itself.

One thing I can say regarding the tattoo is that it does have a backpiece with a vintage ship and that to me makes it vintage as many tattoos from the past did.

Now that I’ve already dropped two different Vintage Fair posts out before opening, I’m looking forward to when it actually officially opens so that everyone who has come by the site with interest in the items blogged can get them for themselves. Don’t worry though it will come soon enough and I will be adding the map to my first coverage post as well as the post I do when the map is released.

For the people who are big into fashion, decor and accessories of the past then this event is the best place for it and the only one where you’ll find a selection of the best stores involved. I’m probably going to say it a lot during my coverage but what’s old is new again with this event and it’s a lot of fun to revisit these things.

[#602] Signs

“Listen to me
I’m not saying it’s impossible
Maybe I just need a little sympathy
Though I’m guessing it would help
If I opened my heart to somebody”

Captives, ♫Signs♫

 

The third month of the year is already here and somehow I felt as though I blinked and the first two months just happened to slip away from me. It’s been a few days since my last post but I’ve been kind of dealing with some issues outside of the virtual world and a few inside of it as well. It’s nothing major in the larger scope of things but enough to where it’s thrown me off kilter just slightly.

Sadly it was a parting of ways with one of the brands I’ve been blogging for the longest since I started my journey and in some ways trying to get passed it was a harder hurdle than I imagined but after a lot of reflection, I truly feel like I was blessed to be a part of it and moving on is healthy and a part of the life cycle. I’ll be the first to admit though that change is not something I enjoy but dwelling on things isn’t a great idea either so I am looking at it as opening up a new opportunity with another brand who will utilize what I have to offer.

Right now my main focus is on being a part of an event that I’ve enjoyed as a consumer and am now getting the chance to be a part of as a blogger. Skin Fair will be open in just over 3 days (at the time this gets posted it will be at least 3). While the majority of the event is geared towards females, I can tell you that I will make sure that the male equivalent of the event is featured and spotlight shown on the excellent skins, shapes, and add-ons (such as tattoos).

This is my first post for the event so pardon me a bit if I’m a bit nervous doing this. Once I get in a post or so the nerves will wear off and it’ll be just like all the other stores that I promote as well as events (to which at the moment there is only one monthly one).

Usually my look when it comes to shapes is normally something that’s been custom made for me or I tweak some that I’ve purchased. Skin Fair is a medium where I have the ability to test out shapes and show them in action (so to speak) as they were intended without any tweaking. Take for instance the shape I am wearing by West End named “Bradley”. It’s for the new LeLutka “Guy” bento head and I think it looks very charming with lean and chiseled body features that along with the “Mario” skin by Stray Dog really sizzle.

The second of my two Skin Fair featured releases is the “Bubo” tattoo from INKer. There are a lot of intricate things detailed throughout this skin such as the mandala type shapes as well as Native American influences. The back piece has a pretty awesome looking skeleton which really calls attention to it. Users of the Signature mesh bodies will be happy to have this ink in their aresenal but for those of you with other mesh bodies it will sadly not work for you as it is exclusive to Gianni and Geralt.

I‘ve recently become a new blogger for the lock&tuft hairstore and this is my second official blog for the store. It’s truly an honor to be able to blog these hairs and also have had some input into recent ideas and names of them such as the “Stay Down” side swept hair that I am wearing for this look. There are a lot of fun color choices for you hair fanatics. The full packs are a great value and worth every single dollar spent on it (of course I mean lindens for those who might have wondered).

To put it the best way I can, I feel the look I’ve put together has a combination of edge along with sensitivity which meets up with the song of choice for this entry. Captives is a fairly recent band that I’ve discovered who only have two single songs out one of them being “Signs” which speaks to me loud and clear as I have felt quite a bit of what the lyrics are talking about.

Some days I feel the weight of anxiety as if it were a ton weighed upon my chest and a lot of times I don’t feel like I should burden anyone with it which is not a great idea but that’s one of the reasons that I have this blog. I can take pictures and write about things if I want to so that I don’t have to drag anyone else down with me on the days that I’m not my best.

Getting back to lock&tuft, it is a brand I’ve followed for some time and believe it will continue to grow and prosper and I look forward to seeing this first hand. This hair is badass and you can find it at Men Only Monthly which is only about halfway through their current February/March round.

lock&tuft – Stay Down

  • Original Mesh
  • 5 color packs available
  • FATPACK option also available
  • Exclusively at Men Only Monthly until 03/15/19

Now that I’ve just about finished my first entry for Skin Fair I feel a little bit more relieved which I was hoping to feel by the time I got to the end. From some of the items I’ve looked through I can definitely say that I’m going to really enjoy sharing them with everyone and if any of my posts help even one person to take a trip to Skin Fair then I’ll have succeeded in my mission.

On that note it is time for me to hand the baton over to the style credits and let them do their job. You know where I got the items now you can go grab them yourselves (except in the case of Skin Fair as it doesn’t open until the 08th). Get your shopping on and I’ll see you all back here soon for more cool swag and news.
