[#396] I Always Feel Like Somebody’s Watching Me

When I’m in the shower
I’m afraid to wash my hair
‘Cause I might open my eyes
And find someone standing there

Somebody’s Watching Me” – RockwellListen

After some hectic days in the real world, I am back to have a little fun with some cool clothing, poses, and backdrops. When I first saw the advertisement for one of my sponsors, Image Essentials, it instantly popped up in my head what I wanted to do with it. I grabbed a few people to help me and feel like I made some magic happen.

There are quite a few new things in this post from the returning TMD (The Men’s Department), Lost & Found which is open for the current round until the 18th, and also the Mesh Body Addicts Fair.

There are a lot of great shopportunities going on at the events I’ve featured today and more, which I hope to be covering in upcoming posts. Going to all these different kinds of events and finding different things really helps inspire me to connect visuals in my head with all sorts of music as you might be able to tell by flipping through the entries of this site. I’ll let you delve into the credits and discover great events and stores and always grab demos to make sure that what you put in your closet brings a smile to your face. Until next time, stay stylish fellas!

HAIRModulus – Kaleb Hair

This hair is a holdover from the Hair Fair that I just managed to unpack because I wanted to find something to go with the “Lukas” hair base and why not pair the same brand together? This combed back hair with a little straying strands in the back goes well with parted hair bases, shaved ones, or just about any you might have in your collection.

HAIR BASE⊱ Modulus – Lukas Hair Base @ TMDNEW

One of two new hair bases available from Modulus at TMD. This side parted hair base goes well with hairs that are not all the way around the sides and back. You can wear it with any hair you want but it would not be used to its full potential. If you are looking for a quality hair base then this will easily fit your requirements.

HEADCATWA – Shaheen (Bento)
EYES⊱ MESANGE – Sanford Eyes @ Lost & FoundNEW

From my sponsor at MESANGE comes the “Sanford Eyes” 15 great iris colors to choose from that are available for single purchase or can be purchased all together in a FATPACK, which makes the most sense if you are a fan of changing eye colors. There is a HUD for omega applier compatible eyes but also comes with regular mesh eyes.

FACE⊱ Clef de Peau – Colin T2 @ TMDNEW

Colin is the latest release from Clef de Peau and is a handsome gentleman with a bit of ruggedness to him. I didn’t notice at first but when you look closer, there is a slight scar on his lip which adds to the uniqueness of his look. This is a CATWA only applier and includes brow and body shapes for the three current mesh heads. The applier also has the option to add freckles if that is a part of your look. TMD runs until the end of the month so there is plenty of opportunity to take this skin for a test drive.

BODYBelleza – Jake

SHIRTEXMACHINA HIPSTER TSHIRT

I have been hearing things about this brand for a while now but had never really taken a look into it until recently. EXMACHINA is the clothing division of the Egoisme brand. After taking a stroll through, I find they have some really cool clothing but I was being particularly picky because I wanted to wear something that fit the Belleza body and I found that in this shirt and the corresponding pants. This graphic shirt has 10 different designs you can choose from so there is extended value to it. Combined with the pants I am wearing you can have almost unlimited choices and combinations. Sizes also available in the package include Signature and SLink.

PANTSEXMACHINA SPORT PANTS

After finding the HIPSTER shirt, I came across these sport pants. I happen to think pants like these are comfortable based on the fact I wear them in the real world sometimes. Combining the two items together make for a really casual look for just hanging out or going out on a shopping excursion. I’m also wearing the Belleza version of these but also included are Signature, SLink, Standard Sizes (XS-XL) and TMP with a HUD that gives you 10 different style options. These would even work well if you exercised or did any kind of sport activity.

SHOES⊱ [VALE KOER] CITY SOCK TRAINERS @ UberNEW

Sometimes finding shoes to go with an outfit is difficult based on factor of style and also what mesh body you might be wearing. At times with the limited amount of footwear for the Belleza body (which is beginning to chance) it makes the task a bit more difficult. Though I managed to put on the SLink version of these (as the Belleza body has a SLink foot converter in the HUD). I always enjoy Vale Koer products because they are stylish and always putting out new items that keep up with real trends in footwear. Of course I always by the FATPACK’s because of the endless customization that you can achieve with them (and the price point won’t break your band too badly). Sizes included in the package consist of Signature, SLink, and TMP (for the guys) and Belleza, Maitreya, and SLink (for the gals) as well as an unrigged version for standard avi’s.

BACKDROPPseudo – Townhouse Scene

With the impressive quality of mesh backdrops these days, it’s making it easier to create an impressive scene without having to worry about going to a pre-decorated location (which is still preferred and fun) to create a good looking visual. Pseudo’s gacha machines always seem to have inspiring places to try to play for so that you can put together a great setting with very little fuss or frustration. I encourage you to check out what they have to offer and even visit their booths in current events which you can find transportation to from the store itself.

IE – Photobomb v.4 (b) @ Mesh Body Addicts FairNEW

Photobombing has become a trend over the last couple of years and has become quite an art for people in both the real and virtual world. Some have even made it part of their “gimmick” if you will. Image Essentials has captured the essence of this fad by creating 8 different sets featuring many incarnations of photobombing. What you see in this entry is v.4 which is sort of a ominous way of creeping up on someone while they are being photographed. I really had fun with this and appreciate the two clowns that had a hand in helping out with the visual presentation. Looks like the joke was on me this time out.

[#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!

[#329] I’m Waking Up

Hey, my life is real great feel I’m well on my way
to my dreams coming true and I’m getting to do it with you.
And it feels so nice when the people sing along
they’re singing along with the banjo

post329_01 post329_02

After shopping trips to The Men’s Dept, Men Only Monthly, the SIGNATURE Event, and the newly opened Lost & Found, I have got a very cool and casual look to share with you this time around.

A few items have returned from last time like the Go&See “Jayden” skin that you can get right now at Men Only Monthly. I just really like how it looks with the Catwa “Daniel” Bento head. Sometimes with appearance you can’t help but to go back to your faves. Sometimes I do change things up just to provide a variety with my looks but when you feel comfortable you tend to use it more frequently.

My other Men Only Monthly item are the “Ripped Jeans” by INVICTUS. They come fitted for Nyramith Aesthetic, [SIGNATURE] Gianni, SLink Physique, Standard Fitted, and TMP body types. Wearing them with my Gianni body was pretty effortless but you still have to tick most of your leg alphas in the HUD but nothing complicated to deal with. They also come in several choices from your light denims to your darker and black so depending on your style or mood, you can find the right one.

{COLD-ASH} has a new product available at the SIGNATURE Event. That’s right, you can get the CONNOR long sleeved Polo shirt which is available right now. I really like the style of this shirt, it’s very casual and would be very comfortable to wear to just about any social gathering. There are 8 colors to choose from but I tend to have a hard time with making a choice so I am glad that I have the entire classic pack. Besides the Gianni fitted shirt, you also get fits for standard, SLink Physique, and TMP bodies. The best thing about this shirt is that you also have the option for a slim waist or a wider waist (for those of you who like baggier shirts as I do).

Tableau Vivant is at The Men’s Dept with the Oliver hair. It’s a very nice mid-length hair in which there are three different color packs or the option to buy all of them for a discounted price. I chose to go with the Naturals II set and add a bit of salt and pepper to give a little more mature look.

Now onto the newest round of Lost & Found, which opened for their January/February round on the 22nd. MESANGE is offering the “Melancholy Eyes” which have a total of 15 color iris’ and come with the standard mesh eyes. The HUD allows you to change the size of the pupils and also has options for OMEGA and Genesis Lab appliers. I really that there are options for the size of the pupils because not everyone likes to have huge eyes. It is becoming more and more of a standard option recently and I am certainly grateful that MESANGE has picked it up.

It’s time for you all to get your shopping on and pick up these great items or any of the other great products at these events. Maybe I’ll see you out there. Until the next time we meet up here for more fashion, stay stylish fellas! Now onto the credits!!!

[#322] This Impossible Year

post322_01post322_02

 

There’s no sunshine
This impossible year
Only black days and sky grey
And clouds full of fear
And storms full of sorrow
That won’t disappear
Just typhoons and monsoons
This impossible year

This Impossible Year” –  Panic! At The Disco    ♬Listen

We’ve exited out of 2016 and rush in 2017 and here’s my latest photo shoot that’s a day or so later than I intended but I still feel the vibe works because the feelings that equate with the turning over of the calendar last for a little bit after the ball drops at midnight on the 31st.

This is sort of my way of celebrating that and even picked up a few decorations for the party for one that you see in the photos. These were provided by the Gacha created by GOOSE for New Year’s Eve. It was originally located at the Cosmopolitan event up until the 31st but I am leaving a taxi to their main location just so you can pick them up if you feel like.

My look this time out consists of a shirt/tie/pants collection from MGmen’s that was originally released at the Signature Gianni event but like with the GOOSE items, in the credits you’ll have a ride to go there and get them. Unlike the decorations this attire could be used for any post celebration you may be at and still make you look like the established gentleman you are after a long night of dancing and living it up.

Lastly, the hairstyle is a recent release from taketomi called Bobby. It has that messy look that you might have after that aforementioned long evening. There are plenty of color options available but I chose to go with the variety pack of natural tones. It’s a very nice, short, style for those of you that want a little length but are not a fan of anything below the ear.

I hope everyone has had a great New Years and that you had a great time. Here’s the credits and as always until next time, keep it stylish fellas!
