[#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!

Beware…the Ides of March

I’ve got another nerd inspired post for you today. I’m combining my coverage of Skin Fair 2017 with some goodies from The Arcade Gacha Event to bring a sort of epic composition. I had entertained doing some kind of circus type session a while back but it was just difficult to pull the pieces together until just recently and when they did, I jumped on it!

Swallow has released or I could say re-released for their Skin Fair exclusive a skin based off of Jared Leto’s portrayal of The Joker from the Suicide Squad film. They had created one before this but it was only for the TMP brand mesh heads. This time it is for the CATWA line of mesh and bento heads. I can tell you that they’ve gone back and improved their original creation and it looks even more realistic. It’s really fantastic being a fan of the character and of the movie.

While you may be thinking…this photo has Catwoman in it and she was not even remotely a part of Suicide Squad. You would be right about that, however, she is an integral part of DC Comic’s and Batman’s “Rogue’s Gallery” so I thought I might combine the two after seeing S&P release the “Cat Lady” Gacha at the current round of The Arcade, which I wanted to give coverage to. Normally I have a love/hate relationship with these machines but the ironic thing is I wasn’t playing this one for me mostly and managed to pull the RARE items that made up the original “Cat” outfit. I was luckily able to get my assistant, Bianca, to throw it on and do the photo shoot with me.

I feel like it turned out nicely and what the vision in my head originally saw.

The outfit I am wearing is one of two Marketplace finds for this week; while I may not have one every week I like to try and find something to send my readers off to the MP to see what they can find if it isn’t the item I am featuring. [Phunk] made a Joker resembling costume/outfit that appeared in the middle part of the film. I think it is nicely detailed and normally I have reservations about wearing Standard Sizing with the Gianni body, this fit nicely with a little tuning of the alpha cuts. What you see is the purple crocadile trenchcoat and Arkham Asylum sweatpants, also included in the package is his cane that he uses. Kudos to [Phunk] for making a rather accurate product.

Also from The Arcade is the “Circus Rot” Two-Top Tent and Yoyo, who I affectionately refer to as the RARE “Unicycle Clown”. Remarkable Oblivion never disappoints with some of their array of creepy mesh items. If you haven’t been to The Arcade and this is your sort of thing…I urge you not to hesitate and get there before the end of the month before the round ends.

I’ve featured a bonanza of Gacha items in this post, another Circus themed machine located at the March round of The Chapter Four is made by The Silas Gallery. The “Le-Petit Cirque” set features some rather unique circus characters ranging from different types of clowns, mimes, animals, ballons, and more. I chose to use the “Clown” and “Pierrot” who is a mime to join my featured villains in this insane little project.

Lastly, my second Marketplace feature is the “Than Shoot Me” pose set from Vetrovian Sin. It has ties to a scene that can be found on the director’s cut of “Suicide Squad” and to which I gave a creative license with. It has a full scene included but I just needed the poses and the handgun to complete my vision.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this entry as much as I did creating it. Now that you know the in-depth details I am going to leave you with the credits and taxis to get to these really awesome events and stores. I’ll be back again with another installment but until then, stay stylish fellas and also you felines! 🙂

[#344] I’ll Follow You Down

… down to where forever lies
Without a doubt I’m on your side
There’s no where else that I would rather be
I’m not about to compromise
Give you up to say goodbye
I’ll guide you through the deep
To keep you close to me

I’ll Follow You” –  Shinedown  ♫Listen

After a small little hiatus, I’m back with another look for you with new items from The Crossroads and The Chapter Four. I’ve also got a bento pose from Image Essentials that I enlisted the help of my friendly assistant, Bianca to help me with. She is wearing a new item from Creators Collection Box. Let’s get into the details everyone!

Go&See is back with a new skin available at the recently opened March round of The Crossroads. That’s right, the “Markus” skin is now available in both Pale and Tan tones. The package includes appliers for just about every body type so you shouldn’t have any issues pairing it up with your body setup. Also there’s a shape included that helps make the facial features look their best but you could also modify it yourself if you want to tweak it even further to your specifications.

With March just getting underway, The Chapter Four is also back for two weeks of retail spanning from clothing, gacha machines and more. MESANGE has released their “Cassandra Eyes” which feature 15 different tones and it comes with regular mesh eyes and also a HUD for Omega applier enabled eyes for those who have them. After much thought, the owner and creator, Jadis Ashland, has chosen to stop making appliers for Genesis Lab eyes as there is a major difference between the original mesh head eyes and the ones that are found in the bento version heads.

As I previously stated my assisant, Bianca, is wearing a cool baseball jersey/jeans combination from *KOPI* that is available presently at the Creators Collection Box event until March 18th. It comes in standard sizes but easily works with many of the mesh bodies with alphas enabled.

There are plenty more exciting things coming up around the horizon with The Men’s Department just opening and Skin Fair 2017 just about to begin not to mention some things from the already opened rounds of the Signature Event and also Men Only Monthly so stay tuned for those. I look forward to presenting great looks for you all.

Until the next time, stay stylish fellas!

“Just fall apart if you need to
I’m here and I won’t leave you now
Don’t look down”

I’m back with some great new looks and a collaboration with one of my most cherished and favorite people in the world, the beautiful Ashlene from the Like A Phoenix blog. I urge you to take a look at the creativity this girl has because it’s really up there. I couldn’t be happier to share artistic space with Ash and if you go check out her blog, take a look at her version of this great photo shoot we did together. We manage to make the rounds and hit up some of the best events on the grid such as Men Only Monthly, Collabor88, Enchanted, and more. If you like any of the things you see in this blog, I encourage you to give these events a run through and you just might find some hard to live without items but don’t just take my word for it.

“Where there’s love and darkness

    Project Unlimited, the quarterly event where designers display one of a kind items that have a set number to sell is just about in the books. There’s about a day left where you can check out and see what kind of items you can take home that are unique and have a small number. I’ve managed to find a few goodies here like the .Reckless. Graves tattoo and the Damselfly Joey Hat/Hair combination. I’ve combined that with the AMERIE Shorts and Leggings combo and the V-Spot Shadow Runners which you can find at the current round of Men Only Monthly that just got under way. Check out those two great events while they last and pick up some really cool gear but you don’t have to take my word for it.
