[#375] 6th Avenue Heartache

And the same black line that was drawn on you
was drawn on me
And now it’s drawn me in…

6th Avenue Heartache” –  The Wallflowers (ft. Adam Duritz)  ♫Listen

A lot of bloggers out there tend to stick with only the current and new items in their entries but sometimes I like to mix some of the new items from current events to some of my more favorite items within a certain time range or from a certain brand that I know is relevant and still kicking butt on the fashion scene. One of those that comes to mind is [Deadwool]. In my last posting I wore the “Strider” boots because it fit with what I was working with. For this look I combined some of my new items with the “Pleated” Jeans. I’ve featured them a few times but that is the brilliance of purchasing the full packs because you are not always wearing the same one each time out.

One of my favorite brands, Modulus, has two new offerings at the freshly restocked “Limit8” event. For those of you who are unfamiliar with it, it is full of different designers and items with at least one item with a limited amount of product to sell and once it’s sold out it will no longer be sold again in that form. There are two items from Modulus being sold and I’ll start with the “Tate” Hair. It’s a hair that is in between the short to medium range and is combed over to the right side with a little bit of a floaty look. This item is not one of the limited items but it goes perfectly with the “David” hairbase that is also being sold and is the limited edition item for the event of which only 100 copies will be sold. I would take a trip there as soon as you can to take a look at this item because I have no doubt it will go fast.

Also recently re-opened is the Men Only Monthly event, which happens to be one of the ones I look forward to each 20th day of the month. I have two different items from it but we’ll start first with the review copy of the “Andrej” skin from Avi-Glam. I like the youthful look that this skin provides and goes excellent with the “Dante” Shape that is also available at M.O.M. Avi-Glam has also relaunched their body skins which “Andrej” is the first release to get the treatment of new and updated skin tones. There are 8 tones to choose from (Ivory, Fair, Light, Honey, Latte, Tan, Dark, and Cocoa) and the v2 body appliers which you can find at their main location have an option for soft or athletic. Head over to Men Only Monthly and grab some demos because you might just like what you see and want to have it for yourself.

One of my many weaknesses when it comes to shopping (other than skins or gacha machines) is shoes. If it is made by one of my favorite designers there’s more than likely a chance that I’m going to buy it and buy a full pack at that. Kustom9 certainly pulled me in when I saw the “TCHEKOV” Sneakers. These shoes are based off one of the popular brands of low top shoes that I’m not going to name specifically but can tell you that it is named after an animal. The color choice I went with this time is the Suede Cream as it is something that I might not normally go with but I went out of my comfort zone of monotone type colors and felt this fit pretty well with the rest of the outfit. Inside the package you will find sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, SLink and TMP for the gals respectively) and Gianni, SLink, and TMP (for the fellas) as well as Unrigged for both.

For the pose and backdrop of this scene, I’m utilizing the Wetcat & Lemon’s “Alley” backdrop which you can find at FaMESHed until the end of the month. This set can be purchased with or without the animations if you decide that you would prefer to use your own. The one thing that bothered me about this is that to try and use my own lightning I had to edit the build and find the various light sources within it but it is a small price to pay really for a well put together backdrop.

Now that I’ve gone through just about everything there is to know about this look, I’ll leave you with the complete credits of what I am wearing and where to find it either by store or by event. Thank you for taking a look and as always until next time, stay stylish fellas!

[#366] Story Of My Life

Life goes by so fast
You only want to do what you think is right
Close your eyes and then it’s past…

Story Of My Life” –  Social Distortion  ♫Listen

Oi! Welcome back to those of you who are returning readers and for those of you who might just be visiting for the first time, it’s a pleasure to have you. I’ve got another punk inspired look for you today as it seems that I’m on that kick at the moment. This entry contains items from the Men Only Hunt 9, The Epiphany, Cosmopolitan and Kustom9 with a preview of one of the exclusives by Go&See at The Dark Style Fair 4.

For the second straight entry the “Simon” skin from Avi-Glam returns. This time I paired it up with a much thicker beard to show a more rugged side. I’ve also thrown in the “Wagner” Flat Cap from {Fe Style} that is still available in the Men Only Hunt 9 which is still going for a few more days. If you are not sure what it’s all about, check back a few entries where I gave a link for the location of the HUD used to jump from location to location involved in the Hunt.

As a blogger it if sometimes nice to get to preview items before an event opens which is what I’ve been able to have the privilege of doing with the “Mountain” eyes appliers from Go&See which will be exclusive to The Dark Style Fair 4 starting May 1st. These eyes are appliers for the Catwa mesh eyes and have a HUD that includes 10 different color iris’.

For you Gacha addicts I have a little something for you as well. Semller and LeNoir have collaborated for an outfit that is a part of The Epiphany event. The machine has specific buttons for different sizes so you can choose the best one that fits your body. I chose of course the [SIGNATURE] Gianni version. One of the best things about this shirt is there is an accompanying HUD that gives you four different choices for the texture; of course I went with the worn look to match with the item that I’m about to talk about next.

In a previous installment of These Conversations Kill, I covered a pair of [ VERSOV ] Jeans called “STEFOV” from The Men’s Department. They’ve released a different set of these jeans at Kustom9 and today I’m featuring the “CUSTOM GRUNGE” version. These light denim, rolled up, jeans with a bit of fraying go really well with the Semller work boots that I had in my closet just waiting for use.

I have one more item from the dynamic [ VERSOV ] brand that you can grab at the Limit8 event. The “NOTROLLOV BRACELET” in Black comes with a HUD that changes the face and metal of the little skull that connects the beads together. Each metal has a pretty funny name to it so I urge you to check this out if bracelets are your thing. This item was not limited to a certain amount but I do believe that once the event is finished it will no longer be sold which means once Limit8 is over this item is off the market. Again I really do recommend this item as a must have accessory.

Now that you can see what went into my punk rock/grunge casual look, you can scroll down to the credits below and take a taxi to the stores and events that were a part of what made this complete. Take a trip, grab a demo and browse around but most importantly, fellas, stay stylish while doing it!

[#365] Ole, Ole, Ole, Ole!!!

Bouncing souls no one can beat us
we drink beer and wear Adidas!

Ole!” –  Bouncing Souls  ♫Listen

It’s that time again for another new look. I went super casual this time and found away to incorporate a new pair of low tops and one of my favorite energetic anthems. Most are familiar with the theme of this song as being kind of a soccer hooligan fight song and is very catchy. I found that the [VALE KOER] “LIFTOFF TRAINERS” that are currently for sale at the Kustom9 event fit perfectly for this outing, as it fits the brand of sneaker mentioned within the song.

Those who keep up with this site know of my love for low top shoes, athletic or non-athletic alike. Because of all the ways you can style the FatPacks for the [VALE KOER] brand, it was all too easy of a choice to take advantage of. The value itself makes it also practical then just buying several different styles of the same shoe. The package contains sizes for Belleza, Maitreya and SLink for the ladies as well as Gianni, SLink, and TMP for the fellas. There’s also standard size for both genders to wear that may not have a mesh body yet.

Avi-Glam has a new skin out at the latest round of Cosmopolitan called “Simon”. I am wearing the Light tone, which I feel for their brand fits my personal needs the best. It also comes included with a brow shaper and a body shape, which I opted out of for this session.

My hair is from the Limit8 event and was created by lock&tuft. The “Downed” style Fatpack is a limited edition at the event so once all the copies are sold out it will be gone forever. It comes with 3 different styles to choose from, The first two are very much alike with subtle differences in length. The third version has a small bun in the back which is tied. The product also includes a HUD to change the color of the tie as well as the 3 different HUDS to change the main hair color..

The clothes I chose were items I had in my closet, one of them I’ve featured a few times in the “Lennon Long Line” Jeans by RIOT. They work perfectly with low top shoes which I wear pretty often so I tend to choose these to compliment them when there are not another pair of jeans that I’ve picked up. The tanktop I have on is from N-Uno and is called “Tom” and first appeared as a part of a previous round of Men Only Monthly. The one thing I found is that it does not work well with the jeans as far as fit which I would have had to do post editing on if I would have taken a picture from the back side. All things considered the Gianni size fits pretty well with the body. The package also comes with sizes for Adam, SLink, and TMP bodies.

There are only a few short days more if you have not been to Pose Fair ’17. Things seemed to get past me all too quickly in my coverage of this event but let me tell you there is so much there for everyone that you should definitely check it out for yourself. In this photo I am using a pose from the “Tell Me You Love Me” set from LW Poses. It worked really well going to The Last Forever sim and being able to lean myself up against the wall of a restaurant to have a cold one and watch the goings on.

The Pose Fair of 2017 comes to a conclusion on the 29th of April.

Now that you’ve got a handful of information of what took place in this entry I’m going to let you get to it so you can grab your wallet and head off to these stores and events and see things first hand for yourself. I hope to be back to get at least one more look at Pose Fair in before it’s done for another year. Until next time, keep it stylish fellas!

Bento is slowly taking over the grid and not just for the ladies. Yes, us gentlemen are getting the same treatment with some products that are slowly rolling in this past week and in the time to come. I’m still trying to get used to it and figure out the best way to use it to maximize it’s benefit with the latest tech coming onto the grid.

In this latest post, I am showcasing the new “Damon” head from [GA.EG] paired with the Essences Ian Skin that’s been one of go to skins in the last little while. I didn’t really use the sliders to edit the head much until I get a little more adjusted but there’s plenty of possibilities now that you can adjust settings like you can for the legacy shapes most of you pre-2014 remember.

The Chapter Four ends tonight and I’d be completely remiss if I didn’t encourage you to take a quick peek over there for the MESANGE “Lark Rise Eyes”. As with all of the MESANGE releases you have lots of options and they’ve now included the option to have different sized pupils via a HUD. These eyes can work with everything or just about and would definitely give you that Handsome edge that you’re looking for.

Also MODULUS has a limited edition hair, “LARS” that is available at the Limit8 event. It comes in your favorite tones and has fits for the standard avi as well as mesh ones.

Lastly, {COLD-ASH} has released a phenomenal Jacket with loads of options, which include the ability to wear a scar of just a t-shirt with it. There are several different colors you can choose from and the scarf/shirt can be color changed as well through the included HUD. If you want to look tough for like the mayor of “Pee Pants City” this release currently available at TMD will certainly fit the bill.

That is about all I have for this outing, pleasant shopping to you all and as always stay stylish fellas!

Trouble on my left
Trouble on my right
I’ve been facing trouble almost all my life

{Q-Essentials} is back after a short hiatus with a brand new release and a brand new store location. For this look, I have the honor of showcasing the “Wesley Military Shirt”. The version I’m wearing is the Obsidian color, but you can also purchase it in Azure, Chestnut, Hunter, and Vino and comes in standard sizing.

You can catch a taxi within the credits to go pick up one of these or all of them if you’d like and make a great addition to your closet.

Also a part of my look are the “ESKADRY” slip-ons in DARK which are a Limit8 exclusive and only have a set number to be sold so if you haven’t been to Limit8 yet then you need to jet on over there and grab these if not having to tie shoes is your thing.

MESANGE also has a new product at the new Designer’s Circle round that opened up recently. This time it is a small package of eyes called the “Melusine Eyes”. There are 5 styles of eyes that you can buy individually or as a FATPACK. Each individual pack has your standard eyes, Mesh, and HUDS for both Omega and Genesis Lab to give you plenty of choices.

Last but not least, for all of you who have CATWA heads, here is a friendly reminder that there has been a new update released for all of their products so if you haven’t been there in a while now is the time to go get the latest version of your head so that you have the latest features and bug fixes.

That’s about all I have for you this time so maybe I’ll catch you on the grid, until then keep it stylish fellas.
