[#363] And You Are Where I Want To Be

In the back of my mind, well I thought my god
‘Cause all of the hell that’s in my time
But I can still see the birds
And where they went this year

Where I Want To Be” –  The Dangerous Summer  ♫Listen

One of the things as far as fashion goes that always seems to catch my interest and that 9 times out of 10 I will buy…are items with the houndstooth pattern on them. I cannot recall when it first started for me but I grew an affinity for it and now keep a look out for it in shopping guides and whenever I am at a store or event. In this entry I found two items that fit that criteria and are very well made so I felt compelled to feature them and share them with the viewers/readers of this site.

This look started with going to the Shoetopia event. Even though I did not feature the “Stray” creeper shoes from {kokoia} while the event was active, I could not find the right items to pair it with until the newest round of The Men’s Department started up and I was strolling through and found the suit from Scars (in which the jacket/shirt and trousers are sold separately so keep that in mind). I liked the quality of this suit and there were three different suit colors to choose from but what caught my eye the most was that the black jacket had a shirt included with a houndstooth pattern. I instantly thought “well now I have an outfit” and now I’m here telling you about it.

The “Slim Fit” suit from Scars comes in Standard sizes but I made it fit easily with the alpha cuts on the Gianni body. It looks great in combination with the creepers. Makes for one stylish gentleman, don’t you think?

While I’m still sorting through the items from the Men Only Hunt 9, I thought I would give you a look at the “Jaxx” skin from 7 Deadly s{k}ins. It comes in the caramel tone and also provides skin appliers for just about all types of bodies which means if you haven’t been out there hunting for items, this is one stop you should make if you were to. I totally encourage doing the hunt, it’s not every day that designer’s put out items at no cost other than group gifts every now and then.

Speaking of gifts, Exile just redid their main location and are offering the “Tommy” hair for the fellas and the “Gina” for the gals. The hairs come complete with all the color HUDS included so you have all of them at your disposal. After taking a moment to think about it, Tommy and Gina are names that are used in the Bon Jovi classic “Living On A Prayer”. I find that really clever but I’m sure I wasn’t the first to notice this either.

Also a part of this look are the MESANGE “Roseland Eyes” which were a part of The Chapter Four event which is now over but you can grab them at their main location in the credits below. There are 15 different iris colors and a HUD that controls the mesh eyes that are included as well as Omega enabled eyes that you may have.

For the second entry in a row I have used a backdrop from SEUL’S “#scenes” gacha machine from The Epiphany as well as a different pose from the “Kai” pose set by Image Essentials that is currently available at the TWE12VE event to complete the look and scene that you see above.

Now that you know some of what went into this entry, I’ll leave you with the credits so that you yourself can take a taxi to the stores and events that were a part of this installment.

As always until next time, keep it stylish fellas!

[#355] Bad To The Bone

On the day I was born
the nurses all gathered round
And they gazed in wide wonder
At the joy they had found

The head nurse spoke up
said “leave this one alone”
She could tell right away
That I was bad to the bone

Bad To The Bone” –  George Thorogood and The Destroyers  ♫Listen

It seems that I am on a nice little roll lately with coming up with ideas and being able to do the photo sessions and get everything organized in a timely manner. It doesn’t always work that way but when it does it makes me just a little bit happier that I can bring you info on great items.

I recently received a review copy of one of Avi-Glam’s recent skins called “Ash”. Now this was a challenge for me as it is a standard avatar skin and I have not blogged one in nearly 2 years or more. So putting this together took a lot of patience but I think it turned out well. I think it makes me appreciate the invention of mesh, not to mention Bento. I went with the “Light” tone because it was just right for what I normally like to wear. Along with this skin, Avi-Glam also released one for the TMP mesh head and also new updated body appliers which for this set of photos I am using the [Signature] Gianni ones and it looks really nicely toned. Not overly muscular and not flat either.

The VERSUS event is still going strong for a little while longer, and I am wearing the “Wash” denim tone of the SABOTAGE “Searing Denim” which comes with a HUD that you can change the color of briefs you are wearing or to remove them completely and even to have the flame graphic on or off as well. I thought that was a really cool touch but I chose to leave the flame design on because that is what makes these jeans unique in the first place.

{kokoia} has been on my radar for a little bit now with the brand becoming more noticeable in the events they are being featured in. Their “Tussio” sneakers are available for purchase at the March round of TMD, which you still have a few more days to browse before the shut down for the April round. If you haven’t already been there, I encourage you to go as there is literally just about everything there. Getting back to these sneakers, they are a true value as the package contains 10 different colors and a HUD to change different parts of the shoe. There are endless combinations to be had. I just so happened to color mine so that they resembled something closely associated with the flames on my jeans.

Wetcat Poses has been around for quite a long time and as far as I can remember, they have been here just about as long as I have in-world. They did a collaboration with LEMON to make a building prop complete with a street lamp and a fire escape. It also includes poses for couples, females and males. I am definitely about this build and hope to use it again for a project because the textures and poses are very well done. A big shout out and props to these guys for creating a really cool backdrop.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this installment and I look forward to being back with you all again soon. Until then, stay stylish fellas!
