[#498] How’s It Go Again?

All my new friends
We smile at party time
But soon we forgot to smile
At anything else

AJR (feat. Rivers Cuomo), ♫Sober Up

Putting fun (or just funny) scenes together is something I do like to do even though most of the time it seems like everything on this blog is super serious. I like to try and show a little bit of everything when I can so that’s what I’ve got going on in this post. I’d say that I came into contact with this song that I’m using for the soundtrack of the blog about maybe 3-4 months ago when I was traveling and listening to the radio. I thought that it was a really upbeat type of song even though some of the lyrics to it are a bit deep and maybe even troubled. I have at times felt this way in my life and I’m sure many others have too but there’s always someone in our life that brings our spirits up and we might not have seen them recently.

This is dedicated to those people because no matter how long time passes between visits or communication they always have that special place.

As my coverage for my first round as an official blogger of The Men Jail is winding down, I have several different items that are making an appearance here because I wanted to get as much as I could in when it was applicable. The event has such a variety of things so choosing what to show has been a bit of a struggle for me but in a good way. I hear things from others saying that they have hard time blogging items from events because it doesn’t fit what they do or whatever the reason might be but I am of the mentality that I can make just about anything work and I’m going to try win, lose, or draw.

Poses are something that you can always easily apply to a photo because it’s essentially a lifeblood to help you capture something unique (unless you are a landscape or decorative blogger than that does not apply) and {Phantom Animations} latest release “Cart Saga” definitely fits the bill. “Cart Saga” is definitely something fun as who doesn’t remember goofing around in their youth at the grocery or at the local retail chain goofing off with the carts with siblings or friends. It’s very possible that adults may attempt to do this as well to a lot less favorable outcome.

Cart Friends Saga:

  • 5 singles poses
  • 2 friends poses
  • Unisex
  • Includes mesh shopping cart prop
  • Bento compatible

As a part of my look I’m wearing the Purfect “Mesh Beard A 012” which when it comes to mesh beards I figured I’d be tweaking it or trying to tweak it so much that I’d end up getting frustrated and giving up and wouldn’t end up using it but this beard was super easy to do a simple tweak and it fit my face “purfectly” ok that was a bad pun but I have to throw one in there now and then. I seriously like this beard and it’s not so much a hipster style beard and for a moment before I added hair to my look I thought I kinda had the “Eric Young” look going on (if you have no idea who he is hit up Google to learn more about him!)

Purfect Mesh Beard A 012:

  • 8 different hair tones (Fatpack Available)
  • Upper, Lower, and Full beard versions
  • 2 different mustache versions
  • Applier HUDs for both CATWA and LeLutka

My third and final item is from another brand that I’ve heard of but like Purfect is making it’s first appearance here on the blog. MP Style has been around for a while but for some reason I just haven’t gotten around to showing any of their stuff until their TMJ item “Bruno White Shorts” and could also quality as a Bermuda pant as they go past the knee. I am a fan of any short that doesn’t go too far above the knee like your inner thighs have swallowed the material and I know that some people like that style but I don’t feel it looks right on me.

MP Style Bruno Shorts

  • 6 colors to choose from
  • Fatpack available
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake), Signature (Gianni), and SLink Physique

Fortunately I’m able to show off the latest Modulus hair from The Men’s Department with over a week left in the round. Hopefully in the near future I’ll be able to get myself together with taking photos and getting them posted but sometimes my energy levels suck and I just can’t force myself to post something because then I’ll hate it and if I don’t like it how are the brands I am blogging going to like it? It’s a multifaceted process and I’ve made it goal after posting something that I realize I wasn’t feeling 100% to never consider “phoning it in” again.

The “Joey” hair is a short to mid length style that is combed off to the right, I have the sides and back of my head shaved to give it more depth. Hair is another thing much like facial hair that sometimes needs a bit of resize tweaking to look it’s best on you and I didn’t have to do much of that with this product or usually any of Modulus’ hairs.

For this particular scene I’m wearing a tone from the Browns pack as that’s been my signature hair color as of late.

Modulus – Joey Hair

  • 40 colors to choose from (5 different hair packs)
  • Fatpack is also available
  • Color tinting integrated in the HUD

I was also able to get the credits from my buddies look and can tell you that I may have to take a trip to Men Only Monthly to get the A&D “Gregory” shirt because it looks pretty cool. He’s also wearing the latest group gift from Akeruka which is the “Leon” fully loaded Deluxe Mesh Head…yes that’s right you can join their group (it costs only 150L) and you can take home a fully functional mesh head but there’s a catch (as most of the time there is) and that is it is for a limited time only so you have to get to their main location before the 1st of July otherwise you’ll miss out!

My last featured product that also comes from The Men’s Department event are the “Zoe” Sneakers from Native Urban. Don’t let the name fool you this are unisex shoes that you can wear and use for exercising, jogging, or just hanging out with your favorite people. I love that the Fatpack version has so much customization and sure in this photo I played it safe to match my outfit but I can always do something really different in future looks. Native Urban really has a good sneaker game and I’m pretty strict about my footwear.

Native Urban – Zoe Sneakers

  • 8 single colors for purchase
  • Fatpack option available (full 20 color customization)
  • Unisex
  • Male sizes for Belleza (Jake), Signature (Gianni) and SLink Physique

The Men’s Department will keep it’s doors open for this round until the 30th of June so you can take a look at what both Modulus and Native Urban have to offer as well as other top brands for a premier shopping experience. It’s one of the things that easily gets my excitement level up when the beginning of the month starts because I know that new and great guy stuff will be near.

Now that I’ve run out of wind I feel I got a bit heavy handed with writing this entry and could have probably went further but I don’t want to overkill anyone that might be reading or visiting for the first time. I’m going to take a few days and get back into the swing of things and you’ll see something new over the weekend or the beginning of the week (possibly both). Tons of fun things coming up as it’s almost time once again for the next round of Pose Fair as well as a new round of The Men Jail along with commitments to my wonderful brands I’m partnered with.

Hope you enjoy this first week of official summer and until our paths cross again, onto the next conversation…

[#495] Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot!

Me mind on fire
Me soul on fire, feeling hot, hot, hot
Party people
All around me feeling hot, hot, hot

Buster Poindexter, ♫Hot, Hot, Hot

Never in a million years did I ever think I’d be inspired by any song by Buster Poindexter in the history of ever but apparently I am hitting my TBT a day early and going back in time to the late 80’s (1987 to be exact). I was wracking my brain to see if I could find a song that would fit what I was going for which is technically a summer theme but most of the songs I thought of or remembered didn’t quite work until I remembered this gem.

The Men Jail has been underway now for about a week or so and plenty of great things to go there to check out and while not every item might fit your fashion style or decorating style, I feel there is something for everyone and there is at least one thing that could be taken home upon visiting the event.

We’re getting to that point where (at least in my part of the USA) summer is coming and I wanted to capitalize on that with a few of the products that I have going on in this entry including the “Outside Washers” by Grime. This outdoor shower is jam packed with different things that will make anyone wonder why they don’t have anything like this on their beach. It has many editable faces so that it can be recolored to the heart’s desire and poses for both singles and couples (which I may warn you some of the poses are not PG so keep that in mind!) The shower itself is only 19LI so it really won’t break your land bank and it is also materials enabled as during the time of my taking the photos I could see the reflection of things bouncing off of it which is pretty darn cool too.

Since I am showering in my main photo, I wanted my hair to seem like it was a bit wet when I did my closeup shots and the “Joshua” hair by Modulus fit that perfectly. 40 hair colors to choose from via 5 different color packs (with a FATPACK option available) along with an integrated color picker in each HUD that make Modulus one of the best bargains for your money when it comes to hair. Previous things I have said concerning the brand still stand up and they are by far a favorite and one I would recommend to anyone who asked me that was in the market for a new style or just coming back from an absence and needed something fresh.

You can find this hair at the mainstore now as it was previously a part of the last FaMESHed Go round, but it recently ended on the 10th of June. Now you don’t have an excuse to go to the store and find yourself a new hairdo or two (or three even).

I have a double dose of Modulus in this blog post and am also showing off their new “Eyebrows Set 1” that recently made its debut at Hipster Men’s Event. The included HUD gives you several different color options along with a tintable white application that can be adjusted to the needs of those wearing them. These brows have appliers for both CATWA and LeLutka (Omega) so that no one loses out on being able to have these for their aesthetics.

Hipster Men’s Event runs until the 16th of June so you still have a few days to go browse the event which is something I’d encourage because there are some nice things there.

Salt & Pepper is a brand that I previously only remembered for female hair but it seems they are branching out into other things and you can get a taste of that at the current round of The Men’s Department with the “Ethan” tanktop. There are so many things I could say about this that I almost do not have the right words to correctly put my thoughts in order.

This tanktop is part of a line of products that work with the water in-world so that when you go into it, it becomes wet. When you come out of the water you can slowly watch it dry (which takes a total of two and a half minutes to complete) or there is a quick dry towel included so that you can wipe yourself off right away and instantly become dry. I did my best to capture the stage of it being wet in my closeup photo so that you can see this at work and I think it is one of the coolest things to come around in a while. From what I have learned there are products like showers and squirt guns that work along with this and several women’s products already out there (with more to come) which will add a lot of fun to the summer months (and those not so real life summer ones because hey it can stay warm 365 days a year if you want!)

Sizes for the tanktop include: Belleza (which is what I am wearing), Signature (Gianni), and SLink Physique and comes packaged with instructions and the quick dry towel that I mentioned to bring the tanktop back to its normal state.

The Men’s Department is currently underway and you have until the 31st of June to swing by and grab a demo of this really neat product.

Now that I’ve got this under wraps I am going to call it a blog post and journey back into my creative place so I can work on what’s up next (plenty of things that I have to utilize so I don’t have to worry about it too much). There’s more items from The Men Jail coming as well as some new footwear by Native Urban that I am looking forward to wearing as well as more hair from Modulus!

Until our paths cross again, onto the next conversation…

[#492] There’s A Light Up Ahead

Take this heart of darkness
I give it up
and all the emptiness
you fill it up
The times that I feel nothing
you bring enough
So I can live for something
You lift me up!

Further Seems Forever, ♫Light Up Ahead

June is now upon us and it seems like time sure does fly because it just feels like the year just started but we’re already halfway through it. The start of a new month means the restocked events that we love like FaMESHed, The Men’s Department, and of course for those of you Gachapon addicts…THE ARCADE! I hope that while I’m working to get caught up with things that I’ll have items from all these events so that you can get a taste of them from my perspective.

It’s been a while since I’ve covered anything from the Shiny Shabby event so I find myself in luck that my good people at Modulus have released a new hair at the event that honestly has me super excited. It seems a bit suspect that I’m totally gaga over a product by a brand that I’m a blogger for but if you know anything about me then you know that I blog for brands that I love and believe in and Modulus is one of those at the top and I’ve been a blogger for them from just about the beginning and it can easily be verified with little effort.

Okay! The details about this latest Modulus release from Shiny Shabby…the hair is named “Godfrey” and what makes this different from most of the releases is that you really do not need a hairbase for this. It is a parted hair with the side part built right into it without needing a hairbase as I just mentioned. Sometimes I have to resize hair to fit and make it look like it should on my head but I had to do very little with this and it’s made the “Godfrey” one of my top 5 faves of the hair releases in the last 6 months or so since Modulus started releasing products in the Alpha hair line.

40 different color options to choose from broken down into 5 different color HUDs all with an integrated color picker to add an extra bit of flavor in a sense. Of course you can purchase the packs separately or you can get all of them in a FATPACK for extra savings and then not worry about that moment when you wish you had bought more than one pack because you’re feeling like a change. I honestly think this hairstyle is old school cool and a bit vintage as well as unique because you don’t see anything like it out on the grid (but I have a feeling that it is going to trend but you saw it from Modulus first!)

Shiny Shabby is currently going strong and you have until the 15th of June to take a look at this great hair and add it to your style closet.

Go&See has released quite a few products lately including several eye packs as well as the skin that Brena is wearing, who as you can see has tagged along for this photo because I thought it would be a fun idea to throw her into the mix a bit more when I can and the ideas are there. I’ll get more to her in a bit but first I will tell you all about my peepers.

“Sparkle” is just one of two packs of the same name that you can currently find at the SaNaRae event and it is said that the eyes are the windows to the soul; it could also be said that these eyes are a good visual to prove that fact. There are 10 different color iris’ to choose from and I went with the closest blue to what my real eyes look like. The detail of them is super stunning and I’m not sure any photo taken in-world can do them justice, it is just something that has to be seen for itself.

They can easily be used for every day or you could use them also for any kind of role-playing situation you might find yourself in (if that is one of your hobbies). SaNaRae has just recently opened so there is plenty of time but in case your wallet has taken a pounding from The Arcade, you still have until the 18th of June to catch these eyes.

Lately I’ve been using a lot of poses from the store, WRONG, but with good reason as I really do love the poses that are made and also the collabs they do with The Owl store as well. It helps me create things that I have in my head a little bit easier which makes putting things together slightly less manic and stressful. I’ve been to several events they’ve released new products at and couldn’t resist picking them up knowing that even if I didn’t use them right that second that I would have a use for them.

I’m not sure how the numbering really works with them but this pose pack is the “Bento Static Male Poses – 37” which if they’ve come out with 37 different pose sets…that’s really super impressive! The somewhat funny part is that I likely have 3/4 of them and likely would go to their store and claim the ones that I previously didn’t own. To be perfectly honest I’d love to blog for them someday and maybe that could be a reality but for now that’s not a point. This pack contains 4 different bento static stand poses of high quality.

You can find this pose set at the current round of Ultra which the doors will close for this round on the 10th of June which gives you over a week to go take a look at their booth which has other pose sets as well so there’s plenty of posing options for you and your photography.

Brena has come out to assist me for this post and she has a little bit of everything going on with her look, some things older and previously blogged as noted and a few things that may not be new but are new to her along with one new product at a current event, so let’s dive into the specifics shall we?

Earlier in the post I talked about new releases from Go&See which one of them were the eyes I am wearing and the other is “Tina”, the skin that Brena is wearing. This is the first time I’ve used a skin from Go&See that was not male and I’m rather impressed by all the options that come along with them as far as brows and freckles for the face and all the body skin options.

The face skin works for both Catwa and Omega enabled mesh heads which is great for me because Brena’s noggin of choice is LeLutka’s “Chloe”. I felt that when I was putting her together I didn’t want to give her a CATWA head because I know so many people with them that I wanted to diversify from it. There is also a plus that the HUDs for the head are ridiculously awesome and are jam packed with features. However, with that said there’s always pro’s and con’s to everything which I won’t get into here because then it would turn a simple blog into nearly a manifesto of some sort.

Getting back to the face, it comes in 8 tones (Albi, Goth, Pale, Summer, Tan, Dark Tan, Tropic, and Cola) with 5 brow options (No brows, white brows, light brows, dark brows, and brow with freckles) which gives you a lot of options to find that right combination to make your girl face super pretty! The body appliers in the same 8 tones as the face skins are sold separately and have so many options that it just blows my mind and would take me forever to try to explain them all so I’m going to give you the abridged version. There are several styles of breasts as well as butts which also gives you a lot of customization to work with all on an Omega applier which will work for just about every body out there.

For attire she tagged the lucky boards at Petit Mort and came home with a flowery camisole and some jeans. She did also get some really great rose printed flats but those didn’t make it into the shot so I may have to photograph them down the line because they are really nice and well worth hanging around the store for the first letter of your name to spring up.

By now I’m sure you’ve either skipped to the credits or just got tired of reading altogether and I don’t blame you because I do tend to get wordy when I get on a roll with writing these things but if you managed to make it here to the end I applaud you and thank you for taking the time to see what all I had to say. Hopefully soon I’ll be getting back to a more regular schedule with blog posts, it’s been a seemingly wild past month but the ideas are still inside my brain and I look forward to sharing them.

Until our paths cross again…onto the next conversation

[#490] That’ll Be The Day

Well, you give me all your lovin’ and your turtle dovin’
All your hugs and kisses and your money, too
Well, you know you love me, baby
Still you tell me, maybe
That some day, well, I’ll be blue

Buddy Holly, ♫That’ll Be The Day

blog490_01

Time for a little “TBT” in this blog post (I’ve always wanted to do a Throwback Thursday) as I gather inspiration from the late 1950’s and the tunes of Buddy Holly. There were a few other songs I thought about as a soundtrack to this theme but I just couldn’t shake the feeling I got with the this song. So I ran with it and didn’t turn back.

FaMESHed is almost about to close it’s doors soon but there is still time to get there to not only get the limited edition hair from Modulus that I previously blogged but you can also lay your hands on this pretty sweet suit from David Heather. When I saw a preview add for it somewhere on social media it was clear that I wanted to blog it and I already had the background in mind with having the FOXCITY “Show Time” limited (and now extinct) backdrop that I got at a previous round of Limit8.

The whole scene just speaks about classic and a time that’s long gone and likely will never be seen again. Yes I wouldn’t trade most of the things today for anything but there is also something about that time period that was interesting and catches my eye. The music scene was certainly a different landscape than it is today but if it weren’t for artists such as Buddy Holly a lot of the music that came after him and the musicians they inspired would not molded some of today’s acts.

blog490_02

The hair I am wearing is a recent release from Modulus and is now in the Mainstore as I did not get a chance to get this idea together and posted before it transitioned but it’s new to the store and worth checking out. It is one of the last few hairs that were released with just 25 colors and maybe the brand will update some of their previous work but even if it doesn’t happen the style of this hair is really cool. I like how you can pair it with shaved sides and it looks stylish. One of the other things I like about it is that it is a slicked back style which is something I’ve always been a fan of when it came to hairs and also why it fit into the grand scheme of this pic.

The pose that I’m using is from a past Gacha from my pose maker friends at Image Essentials (a very big thank you to Kay Weston for providing me this set in hopes that I could pull something off which I did!). I couldn’t think of a better way to show a scene that was similar to capturing the magic of the Ed Sullivan show which was many many years before my time but seeing clips of episodes made an impression that I just don’t get when watching stuff like American Idol or The Voice (or any other talent/variety show out there).

All it needs to be is a man, his microphone, and his music.

This was intended to be a short blog post which means I am going to be wrapping it up and I know there wasn’t as big of a write-up for this post but with there not being that many new or recent items I felt like covering the most important things was all it needed and having given a bit of a backstory about my inspiration would do that trick and I hope it has. I feel that I’ve been long winded a lot of the times so someone reading this post may feel like they are getting a break. There is more to come as I enter the final stretch of my milestone so I urge you to check back in soon to see what my next look might be and what inspired it.

Until our paths cross again, onto the next conversation…

[#489] With A Little Help From My Friends

Oh I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm gonna try with a little help from my friends
Oh I get high with a little help from my friends
Yes I get by with a little help from my friends

The Beatles, ♫With A Little Help From My Friends

Anytime I get to use a song by The Beatles as the soundtrack to a post I definitely jump at the opportunity and with the latest pose from Image Essentials, this was perfect for it.

Gimme A Boost is a bento pose with tree prop where I’m trying my best at climbing a tree but have enlisted Brena’s help to give me that little extra push to get up there. Now the question is when I do get up into the tree what am I going to do there and even more importantly how am I going to get down? I’m not a fan of heights so that could prove to be a bit of an issue!

You can find this unique pose at the current round of eBento that is just at about the halfway point but you have until the 31st of May to head to the event and take a look for yourself.

The current round of FaMESHed is still going strong and I managed to dig into my haul from the event on the second trip I made to it by putting on the DUFAUX “Jordan” tanktop. I buckled and because it had FATPACK only options that is the route I went as it’s getting to be that time of year where I might utilize tanktops in my photos and this is clearly a well made product that has several features that I find to be interesting.

The straps on the tanktop have tongue closures like you might find on a fanny pack (yes I know I’m reminding people of a horrible trend that seems to be trying to snake its way back into popularity). To my knowledge I have not seen anything like this in any of the fashions that I own but it makes it different from any other tanktop that I have in my wardrobe.

One of the coolest features about the “Jordan” tanktop is that it has the ability for you to import a design and apply it to the front of the tanktop. That way if you have a blog logo or some kind of branding you want to show on the front of your tanktop then you could proudly display it for all you encounter to see. This is the second release from DUFAUX that I believe uses this and it’s definitely something I think is cool.

The Men’s Department by far is one of the staples for male fashion, accessories and furniture and probably one of my most frequently visited events. I may have said this before or I may repeat it again in the future but that is only because it is the truth and one of the sources to help me find new brands to add to my arsenal or keep up with brands that I love.

During this round of TMD my friends at Modulus released a new hair that I instantly knew would be just right for the look I was putting together. “Danny” is the latest in the Alpha Hair line from the brand and it gives me a real chill vibe which is what I wanted my look to portray and for the second time I am using the “Roots” HUD which is one of the new features that was recently added to Modulus products.

I have been a part of the Modulus blogger team for a long time, since the beginning I’d say and one thing that I can say as an observer of things is that the quality has always been top notch but the fact that it continues to get better with each passing moment is a testament to the fact that when it comes to releasing products you are getting the very best out of anything Modulus releases no matter if it is hair, skins or once in a while clothing (which it’s been a long time since a clothing item has been but never say never about them returning).

As I wrap this up I definitely want to express that I really enjoyed putting this scene together as it was light, funny, and humorous. I never know what is going to inspire me at a split second’s notice and I start snapping photos and the range of feelings and emotions vary on these pages and that is something that onlookers will come to know from my work. Though I certainly enjoy hearing about putting smiles on people’s faces or knowing that something I might have written or a photo itself has given someone a topic of conversation. Anyone who may be observing and would like to have a conversation feel free to contact me because I’d really enjoy hearing from you.

It’s been a pleasure once more and until our paths cross again,

[#488] The Nights

Once upon a younger year,
When all our shadows disappeared,
The animals inside came out to play.
Went face to face with all our fears,
Learned our lessons through the tears,
Made memories we knew would never fade.

Avicii, ♫The Nights

While I may not be the most knowledgeable about the life and music of Avicii, I do know that whenever a someone from the music community passes away it has a profound affect on those whose listen and feel their work. I’ve been an audiophile for most of my life and there have been many brilliant lights that have dimmed for a variety of reasons and the effect of their loss is very profound even if we as fans had never had any real correspondence with them.

They all sting and they all hurt.

Lately I’ve been taking a listen to Avicii’s work and the genre is not a specific favorite I can see why he had so many fans because you could feel the passion in what he did and the theme I chose for this post was something I took a deeper look into and the words in it which really get you to think on a higher level. It was a tragic end to a dream come true for someone so skilled and talented at what he did and on behalf of your fans I thank you for your contributions and for having been able to share the universe with you.

At Uber, Native Urban released a jacket in memory of Tim Bergling (Avicii) and I think it is a fitting and fantastic product that I definitely have enjoyed wearing. The “Bergling” Jacket comes with quite a few options such as 12 different colors of leather and the included t-shirt has 10 different color options including an graphic tee with an excerpt from “The Nights” which serves as the soundtrack to this post and I suggest if you have not heard this song to click the link and give it a listen with an open mind and an open heart.

You will find the “Bergling” Jacket has sizes to fit Belleza, Signature (Gianni), and SLink Physique male mesh bodies.

The pants I am wearing can also be found at the Uber event and are from the Lenox store which I’ve featured a time or two in previous blogs. I enjoy their work and most of the time when they have a new release that I like I tend to always buy the FATPACK because I know I will use more than one option than what I bought it for at the time.

The “Moto Jeans” come in 6 leather types and are sold both as single pairs or as a FATPACK that includes all the colors. As you can see I am wearing the black version of the pants because I felt that is what worked best with the type of leather I chose to wear on the jacket. These leather pants come fitted for Belleza (Jake), Nyramith (Aesthetic), and Signature (Gianni) male bodies.

Uber runs until the 21st of May so you still have just under a week to go check it out. The “Bergling” Jacket will move to the Native Urban main location and marketplace on the 22nd of May in case you miss out on the event.

The hairstyle that I am sporting comes from one of my longest standing blog partners, Modulus, and this is one that you will not want to miss.

The “Shawn” hair is currently available at FaMESHed but there is a catch, it is a limited edition so once the event ends you will not see this product again ever. It will not be sold on the marketplace or in their store. This hair is the first to also introduce new hair tones which have gone from 25 to a whopping 40 in all which gives you that much more flexibility when it comes to getting that right color for your style. What is also new about this release is it debuts the “roots” color pack which I am using in this blog entry and is only available for this release that raises the total to 48 hair tones in 6 HUD appliers with integrated tinting.

Future releases of Modulus hair will include the three extra hair tones which raises it from 5 to 8 in each hair coloring HUD. Just when you thought you were getting the best out of this brand they continue to up the anti and that is cause for some excitement. I also have heard rumblings of there being a new HUD that will allow alternate styling which if is true will really make them even more of a juggernaut in the hair market.

FaMESHed runs through May 27th so there is plenty of time to grab this one of a kind Modulus hair and I strongly encourage you to do so!

I think that while I am at a good point I am going to wrap this blog post up so I can start work on the next idea but before I do I want to make a mention that for the second straight blog I am using a pose created by WRONG. Seems that lately I have been finding a lot of uses for them and I enjoy using them as part of my posing repertoire. I also found myself photographing with one of the scenes at the very nicely put together Whole Wheat sim, which if you haven’t visited as a photographer you should. There are many great scenes which you could interpret your works and joining their group not only gives you the ability to rez out extra items (make sure to clean up afterwards!) but there are also group gifts to be had.

Once again I thank you for checking in on the blog and look forward to bringing my next visual and until our paths cross again,

onto the next conversation…

[#487] Wrong…

I was marching to the wrong drum
With the wrong scum
Pissing out the wrong energy
Using all the wrong lines
And the wrong signs
With the wrong intensity

Depeche Mode, ♫WRONG

Most of you probably have no idea how long since I’ve been blogging items from the pose store, WRONG, that I’ve wanted to use this Depeche Mode song as the theme for a photo and today was that opportunity so I grabbed the ball and ran with it!

Truly this brand has really great male poses and they’ve done some fantastic collabs with The Owl that I’ve also featured in photos not only by myself but with guests as well and there is so much care that goes into these poses and I am rather glad that they’ve helped contribute to my visual creations and certainly encourage you to check out their new store location that has recently open and find out for yourself.

Now that I’ve gotten that thought out of my head there’s plenty of great things I’m wearing that helped make this photo possible and most of the time I save the best for last but I am going to work from head to toe and start off with my my hair which is called “Mason” and is from my friends at Modulus. This release is a longer length hair (just past the ear/neck) which I’m always a fan of and a lot of the time you don’t see that with guys hairs, they are usually more of an above the ear length and swept to one particular side.

Of course I’m using the HUD with the brown tones in it because that’s just been the mood I’ve gone with as you usually see blonde hair or black so I tend to go middle of the road. I definitely do not see myself as a red/ginger type guy though I have thrown that in a time or two when the direction of my photo needed it. There’s 5 different shades in the pack which make up part of the 25 hair colors the hair comes with; they are also all available in a convenient FATPACK option which includes all 5 color HUDS and each of them provides an additional integrated color picker so that you can give additional color tinting to your hair.

You can find this hair at the main store which I’ve provided transportation to in the credits below!

Men Only Monthly is halfway through its current cycle and the shirt I am wearing by {FE Style} is currently available at the event right now. The “RUDEKEM” t-shirt comes in 10 different graphic designs and also has 8 solid colors to choose from which you can purchase separately or altogether with a money saving FATPACK. As much as I love this shirt and most of the styles offered I had to make a decision based on budget and I chose to go with the graphic shirt that has “Mr. Chaos” on the front of it and this was before I ever chose any of the rest of the outfit or my setting but it seems pretty fitting in hindsight.

Men Only Monthly runs up through the 15th of May before they close for restocking their shelves with new products.

Cold-Ash is back with brand new footwear for a second straight TMD release! This time it comes in the form of boots (the Valkyrie sneakers that I enjoy so much were last months release). These work style boots come with the option of the full version or a half version which fits under pant legs (and is how I’m dislplaying them in this look). The WOODCREEK boots have 8 color options to choose from and have sizes to fit Belleza, Signature (Gianni), and TMP with an Unrigged size for classic avatars included for good measure.

The Men’s Department is open until the 31st of May so there’s still a LOT of time for you to head over there and check these boots out and browse through other equally as good designers and their products.

Another blog post is in the books and as I wrap this up I continue to look at the number of each post knowing that I am drawing closer to a goal I never thought or expected I would get to… 500 posts. I’ve definitely learned a lot since I made my first blog entry back in 2014 and continue to learn and grow with each passing day and photo I take. The one thing about blogging and artistry is that it is not always everyone’s cup of tea and for every 1 or 2 people that dislike something there may be twice as many that like it or vice versa. Trying to please everyone is not something that works and trying to do it is only a fools mission. Enjoy what you do because if others see the pride that you take in yourself it might just be infectious enough to spread around.

Until our paths cross again, onto the next conversation…
