[#425] Ho Hey!

I don’t think you’re right for him
Look at what have might have been
If you took a bus to China Town
I’d be standing on Canal and Bowery
She’d be standing next to me.

Ho Hey♫ – The Lumineers

I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday weekend (those of you who celebrate/observe Thanksgiving). Most everyone is enjoying leftovers while going over some of their real life shopping excursions. I am a little bit under the weather so I haven’t really been out as there really wasn’t much that caught my fancy but I did manage to hit some sales in-world bringing home some new poses to intermingle with some of my scenes.

With the last few days focusing on those that I’m thankful for: family, friends and colleagues but this year I’m most thankful for the special person in my life. She’s certainly helped me see a lot of things that I might not have before and this scene and song choice is dedicated to her.

I have some really cool things I am featuring from my brand partners in this look. Modulus has returned to making hair and at the Industrie event, they have released the “Max” hat and hair combination. I’ve even had the pleasure of speaking with the owner of Modulus, Chucky Hollak, and I have it on good authority that this is only the beginning and there will be new future hairstyles in the works. If this is the beginning of something new then consider me excited.

MESANGE has new eyes up for sale at the newly restocked Men Only Monthly for Nov/Dec. Of course I will give you the details down below in the credits so I can keep this as short and sweet for you as possible. I tend to get long winded at times when I have things I like and want to talk about.

Another new exciting thing is Go&See who are well known for skins for both men and women as well as eyes have ventured into the pose market. One of their first set of four male pose releases is also available at Men Only Monthly. More on those as well down in the credits as well.

With having had several items from Industrie and Men Only Monthly in the last few posts, I’m also giving some love to ULTRA, The Men’s Department and Man Cave in this post. I find that a small amount of events always get the most attention from me and it’s not that I don’t visit other events, it just seems I am just find more that suits my style. I’m always on the look out for new events and brands to feature in my looks/scenes and that won’t change.

It’s that time for me to turn you over to the credits and more of my little observations/ramblings if you will as this adventure has reached it’s finishing point. I hope to see you back again the next time for whatever idea my brain churns out so be well until then!

Onto the next conversation…

HAIR⊱ Modulus – Max Hat & Hair @ IndustrieNEW
This hat is very well made with great texturing and has a HUD to change its color. The tuft of hair that hangs out in front also offers 5 different color packs that you can pick from or you can pick up the FATPACK and wear it however you are feeling on that day.

HEADLeLutka – Andrea v 3.1

EYES⊱ MESANGE – Lihir Eyes @ M.O.MNEW
The colors in these 15 new eyes really draw you in as there is a main color with little bits of other colors swirled in for some magical looking eyes. 4 sizes of eyes with an Omega HUD for compatible eyes (CATWA, LeLutka, Logo…etc). Mesh eyes and system eyes are also included so just about everyone who wants these excellent eyes can use them.

FACE⊱ amias – NERO – Ivory @ TMDNEW
A new LeLutka applier that comes in 3 different skin tones and comes with a brow or browless option. 4 different facial hair options are also included in the HUD as well so that you can perfect your look however you want to. You can also purchase the body appliers right at the event as well so if you demo the skin right there and want to take it home you won’t have to go anywhere else before you head home to fix yourself up.

BODYBelleza – Jake

SHIRT⊱ ExalteD – Flannel – Mustard @ ULTRANEW
When it comes to long sleeved shirts and colder weather there’s nothing better than the feeling of flannel. I’ve always had a flannel shirt to wear on top of short sleeved shirts or just by themselves and I have always been comfortable. Finding this at the ULTRA event was a great moment as I was able to have one in my virtual world as well that fit the body that I am wearing now without any hassle. There are several colors at the event to choose from so there is sure to be one you’ll like. I’m only disappointed that it wasn’t released as a FATPACK too because I likely would have given my money for it; I’m so very tempted to return and get at least one more color.

COMPATIBLE With: Belleza (2 versions) and Signature (2 versions) male bodies.

JEANS::K:: Slim Fit Jeans – Used

SHOES⊱ [MODA] BLAKE OXFORDS @ Man CaveNEW
These oxfords are very versatile in the fact that they look good with both jeans as you can see for yourself up above; they also work well with slacks/dress pants. The HUD comes with 26 color options to change 5 different parts of the shoe with (that’s a lot of options and combinations you can come up with) as well as 4 different metals for the eyelets. This is definitely worth the price, an exceptional value.

COMPATIBLE With: Belleza, Signature and SLink male bodies.

Go&See * Dude * Bento Pose Pack (3) @ M.O.MNEW
As I mentioned up above, Go&See has branched out into poses; there are 5 different poses in the pack that require bento enabled hands for the pose to look the way it was intended to. To you guys out there who are into photography and blogging as I am you definitely should check these out if you have not yet because these poses should not be slept on!

[#417] When You’re On Easy Street

And we’re breaking out the good champagne
We’re sitting pretty on the gravy train
And when we sing every sweet refrain repeats…

Easy Street” – The Collapsable Hearts ClubListen

For my second Halloween post I thought I would bring some people back down memory lane (which may make them a bit terse) by choosing a theme that was a part of one of the most mind shattering moments of season 7 of The Walking Dead. The dreaded song that kept repeating over and over to torture and try to break Daryl Dixon. After the episode aired the song went viral and probably not for the better. So in my own crazy way I’m bringing it back to remind you!

While I probably should have saved the theme for an actual zombie apocalypse type scene, I just couldn’t pass up how quirky the song was for the feel I was putting together for this shoot. With a crazy murderous fowl on the loose, it certainly made a great combination in my mind.

For this session, I took a lot of different photos with various angles and lighting but what you are seeing on this blog entry are the best of the best after minor post-processing. I don’t usually try to overdo anything because then it completely changes the composition of what was originally intended.

Avi-Glam has kindly provided two different products (a skin and eyes) for me to feature and give my thoughts on. The entry also features many items from the current (and still open) TMD event which has about a week or so left before they close it off to begin switching things out for the next round.

This entry also features goods from Men Only Monthly and The Epiphany which has some really great Gacha machines to play with exclusive items to collect before they are gone for good once the round is over.

I hope you’ve enjoyed checking out my second submission for the Halloween 2017 series of photos. I still have more to come in the next few posts (including a collaboration that I am extremely excited about). Another adventure in the books and please be sure to check out the styling credits below. Get your shopping on and I’ll see you again soon.

Onto the next conversation…

HAIR+elua+ Quinn
HEADLeLutka – Andrea v 3.1
EYES⊱ AG. Natural Eyes @ Shiny ShabbyNEW

6 new eye colors are available for you to take a peak at during the newly opened round of Shiny Shabby. The applier HUD (and I’ll list compatibility here in a second) with some of the eyes gives you the option to choose which eye you wish to color or you can apply it to both eyes as well as what pupil size. Mixing and matching is possible which I think can be unique in many instances.

Compatible with: Catwa, LeLutka, and Omega (as well as included mesh eyeballs)

FACEAG. Noah Skin

This skin is for the LeLutka Andrea bento head. Noah has a youthful appearance with 8 skin tones to suit most people’s requirements. The applier HUD has 3 brow color options (along with a non-brow option). There is the option to buy an accompanied shape as well if you choose not to use your own.

BODYBelleza – Jake

SWEATER⊱ Lenox Wool Sweater @ TMDNEW

A very nicely detailed sweater which is something I’d definitely wear in the colder months as I am from a part of the US that tends to get some rather special weather during the winter months. Even though in the virtual world hot/cold doesn’t tend to factor, a lot of people treat their surroundings just like their own real locations. The cool thing about this sweater is you can wear it along with the coat that is also available at TMD this month.

Compatible with: Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature and TMP.

PANTS⊱ ::K:: Levi Jodhpurs Herringbone Tweed-Gray @ TMDNEW

Sometimes not featuring a product right away can be a good thing. I had not used these for anything right when I bought them at the opening of this months TMD. I received a message with an update from Kitt Ragu himself and we had a nice little conversation. It’s those kinds of things that will be a reason that I will continue purchasing and blogging ::K:: branded items. Kitt took the time to personally send out the update to those who purchased them. Such a class act!

These pants come with two types (one of them a shorter leg length for use with boots I am imagining) and also has a belt as well.

Compatible with: Belleza, Signature and SLink.

BOOTS::ROC:: Martens Boot! Mid

BACKDROPtaikou / gaien market backdrop

This backdrop scene is really a phenomenal build, with great details and textures. It was a part of the previous months round of Kustom9 and I purchased it towards the end of the round so I was not able to use it before they closed it to begin setting up for this month’s round. Personally I feel like it helped build the kind of gritty late night atmosphere or someone closing up shop for the night only to be met by a creepy presence.

JACKET⊱ COMPLEX / JACKET / W-B @ M.O.MNEW

This lightweight hooded parka comes in 6 different colors (worn in gray color). Two bonus colors are included in a fatpack that also has a HUD in which you can change the color of various parts of the jacket to your desired look.

Compatible with: Belleza, Signature and SLink male mesh bodies.

JEANS⊱ INVICTUS – Button Jeans – Jeans @ M.O.MNEW

Nicely made basic roll-up jeans that come in 6 denim colors (which the model is wearing the regular blue denim color). A fatpack is also available if you like all of the colors and want to get them at a discounted price.

Compatible with: Belleza, Signature, SLink, and TMP male mesh bodies. Also included is a regular fitmesh size for classic avatars.

SHOES-NOeditiON- SuperStar – Yellow

MASK⊱ *katat0nik* (yellow) Cockface Mask @ The EpiphanyNEW

When I first saw the advertisment for this Gacha at The Epiphany, I thought it was one of the oddest and most unique things I’ve come across in a while and just had to find a way to incorporate it into a scene. The particular head I used reminds me a lot of the well known to baseball fans “San Diego Chicken” mascot…even though it is meant to be a rooster, it’s still fowl (or is that foul? I kid I kid).

BAT⊱ Inkside – Barbed Wire Baseball Bat ♯ Marketplace

This mesh prop comes with an automatic shoulder lean pose but it also works with other poses that includes baseball bats. This item is clearly inspired by “Lucille” the she-devil sidekick to the nefarious Negan of The Walking Dead. This was a pretty cool marketplace find to help pull together a strange scene.

[#409] It Was Worth It In The End

We knew we had to leave this town
But we never knew when and we never knew how
We would end up here the way we are

September” – DaughtryListen

As the season is beginning to change you’ll start seeing scenery changes on just about all the fashion blogs out there and there’s nothing wrong with that. I encourage people to use whatever might inspire them and the changing of seasons is one of those things that can help renew the creative juices flowing within our minds. While personally I am not a fan of colder weather I do embrace it every now and again when it gives me something to work with.

Listening to some playlists the other day I came up with the theme for this photo and it really fits considering the title of the song is the month we are actually still in (but not for much longer of course). It also happened that I saw a photo at a sim I always enjoyed taking pics at, The Fall Trace, which I had not kept up with or even thought was still open. Very glad that it is though and there is a taxi for you down in the full credits.

I only have one sponsored item in my look this time and is another color from the “Charm Eyes” by Avi-Glam currently being sold at Shiny Shabby. I feel as though sometimes if you feature more then one color from an eye set it helps consumers make more of a decision on whether or not they want to purchase the product.

Also in this look set are items from The Men’s Department which has a day or so more left before they close up for the beginning of the next round to get set up. I really did managed to bring home a lot of merch from this month’s event and every bit of it has been great to feature in my work.

Events also featured in this entry are the Hipster Men’s Event and a brand new round of Shoetopia (which I was excited to see as there are usually a small but good amount of footwear for us fellas there). As for the Hipster Men’s event, I have since its first round come home with quite a few items. Another reason to look forward to the beginning of a new month!

I’ve taken up enough of your time but I’m glad you’ve come to take a look at my latest adventure but it is time to go begin a new one…a new conversation if you will. Below are the credits as well as some personal thoughts on the newest items in the look.

Onto the next conversation …

HAIR⊱ no.match_ – NO_SNOW @ Hipster Men’s EventNEW

Even Kit Harrington himself would be impressed with this hair based off of his character on Game of Thrones. This very authentic looking hair is available in several different color packs as well as a variety and Fatpack. Also included is a HUD for a matching hairbase. It comes in a small and large size. I had to take a front and back photo of this to show you how accurate it looks.

HEADLeLutka – Andrea ♯ NEW
EYES⊱ AG. Charm Eyes – Fatpack @ Shiny ShabbyNEW
FACE⊱ ~Tableau Vivant~ – Andrea 003 @ LeLutkaNEW
BODYBelleza – Jake

SHIRT/VEST⊱ ::K:: Classy Gillet Homme Tan @ TMDNEW

Part one of a separated outfit available for a few more days at The Men’s Department. Shirt and Vest (or Gillet’s as they are also called) combinations are a favorite of mine to have in my virtual closet. There are several Gillet colors to choose from (also available in a Fatpack if you can’t decide on just one) with an included HUD that gives you 6 options to change the color of your shirt to. Belleza, Signature, SLink, and TMP male body wearers can head over to TMD to take a look at this very casual combo.

PANTS⊱ ::K:: Soft Cargo Pants Homme Navy @ TMDNEW

So you’ve probably just picked up the Classy Gillet and are thinking “I don’t have any pants to go with this” and then as you are at TMD your eyes wander below to find these excellent pair of cargo’s. With the option to wear them with or without the included belt (which has a HUD to change the color) you are sure to look your best wherever you may be wearing them to, either by themselves or as a complete outfit with the Classy Gillet. These pants are available separately or as a Fatpack and compatible with the same sizes as the Gillet above.

SHOES⊱ A&D Clothing – Shoes -Firenze- @ ShoetopiaNEW

With the upper and lower part of the body covered, I needed something to cover the dogs as it were and fortunately enough a new round of Shoetopia opened. A&D does a really good job with producing quality clothing and footwear and my eyes feasted upon these monk styled dress shoes and thought they were perfect. Just like any other A&D release if you purchase the full Fatpack you get treated to bonus colors and in this release you get them in the form of both shoe and sock colors. Wearers of Classic avi’s as well as Belleza, Signature, SLink, and TMP male mesh bodies will be able to wear these very slick shoes. They are sure to complement any dressed up look and could even be right for some casual attire situations as well.

Photo Taken @ The Fall Trace


WRONG & The Owl. Static Male Poses #4 (1) @ Hipster Men’s EventNEW

Pose makers Wrong and The Owl collaborate to bring us a pose pack for the Hipster Men’s Event. 4 different poses to choose from that could make for a good photo opportunity with a quality bento enhanced pose. If these two continue to collaborate in the future I’ll be sure to keep my eyes peeled. Check them out, I encourage you to.

[#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.

[#354] I Always Catch The Clock, It’s 11:11

And if this is what it takes
just to lie with my mistakes
and live with what I did to you
and all the things I put you through

Konstantine” –  Something Corporate  ♫Listen

Every now and again I get requests and things to visualize my take on songs and some of them I know and others I get familiar with to get a good idea of how to represent it. This particular entry is one of those special ones that a friend of mine asked me to try and tackle. It’s one of those songs that only a fair of people know and surprisingly when I was asked I knew it but the key was to try and do it justice. I feel that I did it justice and with the help of my assistant, Bianca, I was able to make it possible.

The skin I am wearing was to be one of my last items for Skin Fair 2017 coverage but some things came up that I was unable to finish this until after the event ended but it is very likely within a short amount of time it will be available in their main location. It’s one of their first for the Catwa “Daniel” Bento head. I chose to go with the peach tone because it was the best fit between super pale and a more tanned version.

For my shirt, I’m wearing the “Constantine” shirt by Aitui that’s available at the current round of FaMESHed that ends on the 27th. I thought this pulled the idea together being that the inspiration for this entry is similarly titled. There are several different color combinations to choose from by I chose the “crow vs dove” version which essentially is black and white.

I paired it with the “Shoe Cut Jeans” in white by ::K:: and even though I am wearing the NX-Nardcotix “David” body, the best fit for these jeans was for the SLink Physique body which I was able to avoid clipping with the shirt.

Lost & Found has once again started a new round full of great items such as skins, poses, furniture & decor, and what I am featuring for this session: eyes. MESANGE just released the “Manderley Eyes” and you can get the 15 different colors individually or all together by buying the FatPack (which is easily the best value for really good eyes). These eyes have the standard mesh as well as an Omega Applier friendly HUD to be able to change them. Not only that but you get the choice of what size pupils/iris’ you wish to have with the HUD as well.

Tableau Vivant has a new hair that you can pick up at Men Only Monthly called “Hudson” it has a nice shaved hairbase applier included and is a side parted style that I chose to go with a rooted blonde color to try something a little different considering almost always I go for black or brown hair and occasionally blonde but not often.

To give some mentions for what Bianca is wearing, she is wearing a new hair from Tableau Vivant also that you can get at the March round of We ❤ RP and it is called “Leilani” she is wearing one of the blonde tones and the hairbase is not included but can be purchased at the Tableau Vivant main location.

The tanktop and shorts outfit is a part of the Tres Blah “Slumber Party” gacha that is still available at The Arcade until the 31st of March. It is definitely a cute addition to your closet for a night in.

I hope you enjoyed this entry and if you the reader may have a request, you can either contact me personally or leave a comment on the blog itself and I will read it and see what I can do with what I’m given. These are the kinds of challenges I enjoy.

There’s more goodies to come including items from Shoetopia which just opened a few days ago. Keep an eye out and I will see you again soon, here’s the credits. Until next time, stay stylish fellas and for the ladies keep it classy!

Friday I’m In Love” –  The Cure  ♫Listen

TGIF!!! Also for those of you who are Irish (and to those who find a way to be Irish) Happy St. Patty’s Day!

I hope everyone has had as productive a week as it seems I have. Now that the weekend approaches it’ll be time to recover from all the great events and shopping that’s been done. For this entry today I ‘ve taken a break from my coverage of Skin Fair to bring some new items from TMD from brands such as Modulus and ::K:: and also a new (and old) release from FLite.

Here’s the details…

Evan is the latest in the M-Bare line of skins from Modulus that was released for the current round of The Men’s Department. It has the options for brows or browless and also has built in facial hair if you choose to use it and there is also an option for a combination of both. I like how this skin paired up with the Miles shape from REACH.

I’ve got a double helping of ::K:: in the form of the “Leon Sarrouel” pants and the “Leon Singlet” which make a great matching pair and are currently also available at TMD. Inside the package there are sizes for [SIGNATURE] Gianni, SLink Physique, Standard and TMP body types.

Now I usually don’t have too many issues with clothing but I noticed that for the Leon Singlet which I am wearing for the Gianni body, when you alpha out the back to not make your skin poke out there is a space under your shoulder that looks like a bite has been taken out. Now without the alpha cuts there are spots that poke out from the back. I’m not making a huge gripe about it but I thought it was necessary to inform the readers of this and will be getting a hold of Mr. Ragu about it as well. It may not be an issue if you are standing still without an AO but everyone uses them these days so that might create and issue.

FLite has gone and done it again! They have refashioned one of their old releases so that it is compatible with female and male mesh body types. The “Retro” Gliders is a limited to 1000 product that is available now at their main location. It only is available as a Fatpack and gives you several out of the box options as well as the ability to color different parts yourself. Sizes include: Belleza, Maitreya, SLink and TMP for the ladies and for the fellas: SLink, TMP, and Standard sizes which could also be applicable for Unisex styling. These are definitely some cool kicks and I have always enjoyed the FLite brand.

For my hair, I have the “No Offence” which is what inspired me mostly for the theme of the post. I’m a pretty casual fan of the band, The Cure and the hair screamed the essence of frontman Robert Smith so I ran with it and tried my best to create a look that was reminiscent and used the MINIMAL Illusion #3 backdrop because it seemed very 80’s/90’s and was perfect for what I needed.

Be sure to check back for more coverage of Skin Fair and also the newly stocked Men Only Monthly event which I’ll be sure to have goodies from. Have yourselves a great weekend and until next time, stay stylish fellas.

[#324] Forgive & Forget

post324_01 post324_02

Let me down, let me down like only you know how
shut me out, shut me out forgive and forget…

Forgive & Forget” –  A Day To Remember    ♫Listen

The beginning of the month is one of my favorite times because it means the return of my favorite events with new rounds of things just waiting to jump into my shopping cart. The Men’s Dept. is probably by far my most favorite when it comes to just the gents as far as things go. It is hard not to go wild purchasing things left and right when I am there but I have learned to reign in it a little bit but that doesn’t mean I won’t be displaying some of the best and favorite things from it through the course of the month.

From TMD for this particular look, I chose to wear the British Duffle Coat by ::K:: because I like coats that have a longer length. It has just always been one of my more preferred styles. It’s also nice that it has the built in shirt/sweater combination which comes with a HUD so that you can change their colors to get the exact combination that is perfect for you.

It is just close enough to the end of the December round of Men Only Monthly, which shuts down on the 15th so they can switch everything for the new January round on the 20th. From this event I picked coordinating pants from Ascend. The Hideo Formal Trousers go excellent with the Triple Monk Shoes. The choice of colors for the trousers was a hard decision but I felt going with a monochrome outfit seemed to suit me best. The best thing is that they come in Fitmesh for most standard avatars and also for the mesh body crowd with [Signature] Gianni, Adam, SLink Physique, and also TMP.

The shoes have an unfitted option for standard avatars and also for [Signature] Gianni, Adam, SLink, and TMP as well. The best part is that they come with a HUD to change the type of socks you want to wear. I love the choices they have added, argyle is a style that I prefer in the real world so it’s great to see it represented here on the grid.

The Crossroads event seems to be getting a lot of my attention as I used products from it in my last posting and has made it again this time as well.

tram has released a very nice long hair that flows off to the left side of the body, over the ear with a slight little pony bob at the back. Being that I have a hard time choosing hair colors I grabbed the full package which comes with your usual monochrome, brown, and blonde tones but it also has some really nice ombre tones as well which is what I used for this look. For the other item for this event I am using a pose that is a part of The Dean set from an lar [poses]. Poses for me are kind of hard to describe but I like the overall mood of this set and hope to be able to use more of them for upcoming projects.

Lastly, MESANGE has new eyes available at The Chapter Four. The Sekhmet Eyes come in 16 tones and have a newly updated HUD so that you can have different sized iris/pupils. I think it’s a welcome upgrade to the original products that were previously released. MESANGE just keeps getting better and better over time.

We’ve come to the part of the post where we part ways and I give you the credits for the look so that you can go check out these for yourselves and explore all the things offered at these great events. I’ll see you out on the grid and until then, stay stylish fellas!
