[#624] Daydream Believer

 

Oh, I could hide ‘neath the wings
Of the bluebird as she sings
The six o’clock alarm would never ring
But it rings and I rise
Wipe the sleep out of my eyes
My shavin’ razor’s cold and it stings

The Monkees, ♫Daydream Believer♫

 

End of the month time and there’s some exciting things on the horizon for me as May brings in not only the start of much nicer weather (I hope) but also the next incarnation of Pose Fair. With all of the previews I have seen of the things that will be for sale there, I know that a lot of photography enthusiasts and bloggers are going to be chomping at the bit to get their hands on things.

Not knowing where to begin I decide to start with a gacha pose set from Navajo called “Let’s Shave”. The set has 8 poses all together with two being couples poses but there are times when I’m featuring gacha items I pick one of the commons but this time I decided to change it up by displaying the single RARE pose that comes with sink and razor props.

I’ve never really done a shaving scene before and it’s about time to do so; it was fun setting it up and it ended up inspiring me to change up the setting of my own bathroom though most of it didn’t get caught in the photo itself. The shoot ended up being productive on several fronts and I like keeping my mind occupied because if it isn’t then it tends to cause trouble for me. *insert chuckle here*

After I finished taking photos and a little touching up/cropping I thought to myself I have no idea what I wanted to use for the soundtrack so the rest of my evening was spent figuring that out. I finally chose the classic “Daydream Believer” by The Monkees as I enjoy them (yeah most younger people are probably thinking wtf but give it a try it isn’t going to hurt). The song has a reference to shaving which ties everything together mostly so there we go.

Navajo – Let’s Shave Gacha (RARE)

  • Bento capable poses (Bento viewer needed)
  • 8 poses in set (6 commons, 1 RARE and 1 ULTRA RARE)
  • Some poses come with electric shave or straight razor
  • Towel accessory in some poses
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair starting May 04th, 2019

I‘m looking forward to the creativity that will be brought about with Pose Fair as more than anything I’ve began to consider myself more of a artistic blogger that specializes mostly in fashion but it’s poses that really help bring my ideas to life. I’m not sure if there’s a way to describe that but if there is and anyone out there has an idea of what it’s called then feel free to let me know.

This round I’m going to try and balance the singles male poses with couples poses and possibly throw in some single female things too when I’ve met my requirements to spread out my portfolio as well as manage to pair some of the items from stores I blog. 2019 has been about branching out and so far I am not sure that I’ve fulfilled that as much as I’ve liked to but still plenty of time to catch up to that.

[#622] First Date

In the car I just can’t wait,
to pick you up on our very first date
Is it cool if I hold your hand?
Is it wrong if I think it’s lame to dance?

Blink-182, ♫First Date♫

 

I took a few days over the long weekend (for those of you who celebrated Easter I hope it was an enjoyable for you) to evaluate a few things concerning this site and the last entry I wasn’t overly thrilled with my lighting and angles. There’s only one true way to erase the negative thoughts you have about something (other than deleting it) and that’s getting back at it and making the next thing you do better in your mind. If you do not like it then there’s no reason anyone else should either because it probably shows.

Over the weekend I had a function that I got all fancy for but unfortunately it wasn’t what I had expected it to be (which is why I’m not going to mention it by name). I am happy that I had the opportunity to spend time with some great people afterward while looking super sharp. After the evening ended and I started to unwind for the night the idea came to me to take the opportunity of dressing up for a photo.

It also happened that Foxcity put their “Meet You There” backdrop up for the Saturday Sale as it was an item I’ve wanted for a while and not being able to beat the price it helped cement an idea I had in place for a while. It’s quite a romantic gesture to arrive to pick up a date with a flower (of course my choice is a rose as it is my personal favorite and one in which you cannot go wrong). The “Julian” pose set from Animosity comes with 6 different poses and two different rose props to distribute between the poses. Combining these two items together brought my idea to near completion.

Even though it’s not a new event or store release, I wanted to properly give credit to the tuxedo I have on. For years Lapointe & Bastchild have been innovators in formalwear (even before such creators as Deadwool) and the “Marc Bowtie Tuxdeo Premium Edition” really gave me this feeling that I looked really handsome and well put together which is something I needed so I’m glad I took the opportunity to put this on and go out into the (virtual) world.

L&B Marc Bowtie Tuxedo Premium Edition

  • Original Mesh
  • HUD allows customization to Jacket, Shirt and Pocket Square
  • Separate HUD for Pants and Belt
  • Many colors included (including black lapel and stripes down pants)
  • Open and Closed Jacket Types also included.
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake 1.0), Signature (Gianni), SLink Physique mesh avatars and Classic Sizes

Over the last few days I also contemplated on the best way to write the exits to my blogs as I’ve always considered it to be my weakest point (and I am fairly sure I mentioned it before as well). Saying things like catching people on the flip is probably a tad dated and honestly doesn’t feel like a good fit for me anyway so I think that trying to work out catchy phrases and sayings will be out for the time being.

I am also considering making some cosmetic changes to the old place as well but I haven’t decided what I want to do with it yet. I’ve had similar themes since I began blogging and possibly exploring other options may be an idea to tinker with to see if it works out better while making sure it is as easy to navigate as this version is because one thing I know for a fact is if people find it hard to get the information they are looking for they close out and don’t bother coming back in most cases.

The joy of taking photos and blogging is not something I’ve lost completely but it’s dimmed a little bit but now it’s time to return back to those days. I know that I can and while it may take some time and effort, I know that this place can exist again.

[#601] Woke Up This Morning

Wives, mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers
Don’t you wish you didn’t function, don’t you wish you didn’t think beyond the next paycheck
And the next little drink?
Well, you do, so make up your mind to go on ’cause when you woke up this morning
Everything you had was gone, everything you had was gone

Alabama 3, ♫Woke Up This Morning♫

When it comes to old timey mafia films or television I’m a casual fan but that doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy them less than the hardcore passionate ones. I’ll admit that I’ve really not seen much of if any of the Sopranos even though I’m sure that once I get around to seeing it that I’d enjoy it a lot as all indications are it has great acting and a compelling story.

My scene today is a tribute to the many mobster themed sources of entertainment over the years including but not limited to The Godfather series, Goodfellas, Scarface and many more that would take forever to list. Perhaps though for the aficionado’s will see the call out to The Godfather with the cat sitting on my lap and my bro Lucky sitting across from me as if he’s there to ask for a favor.

I didn’t want to completely recreate the scene exactly as I wanted to put my own touches on it so that it could stand on it’s own and not be considered a “rip-off” of sorts; I am confident that this photo will appeal to many but also if not I know I had fun with it. I would also be remiss if I didn’t thank Brenna for helping set up the scene with me based on ideas I had given her.

Having a bad memory sometimes leads to me repeating things and if I do then I apologize profusely. One of the newest stores that I am proudly a part of is Lapointe & Bastchild and for the first time I am blogging their work and being that as a blogger I am nervous because they have been one of my favorite designers over the years. Making sure that I get it right when it comes to featuring their clothing and accessories is important to me so here I go at my very first attempt as part of their team.

Most of the time I’m usually wearing black suits or tuxedos so when I found out that L&B released a specifically white rendition of their “Marc Tuxedo” I jumped at the chance to make it my mafia “Don” attire. As with their other suits and tuxes it’s very well made and fits perfectly. The suit is highly customizable with different variations of white (like the cream colored version that I’m wearing) as well as options for changing the color of the shirt, bow tie and pocket square. You can also make the pocket square invisible if they are not your thing.

If you’re a guy that’s looking for a tux that isn’t your traditional black then a visit to Lapointe & Bastchild is in order to give the “Marc Tuxedo Basic White” edition a try; if you do make the purchase, you should also consider the “Edge Oxford” shoes to compliment them for a complete look.

Lapointe & Bastchild – Marc Tuxedo Basic White Edition

  • Original mesh
  • HUD includes options to change jacket, shirt, bow tie, pocket square and pants
  • Many different style combinations to choose from
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake), Fitted Classic, Signature (Gianni) and SLink Physique mesh bodies

Admittedly I’m not a decor blogger by default but with all the work that Brenna did helping to construct this scene so at the end of this blog you’ll find the decor credits as well as both the styles for myself and Lucky to make this a very thorough blog post. I’d also like to thank Andraus Thor who is the creator for THOR, a decor and accessories store for assisting me with a feline problem. You were a big help in facilitating my kitty addiction so thank you very much.

On this note with all the info that there is to give to you I am going to wrap up this blog post and start to begin preparation for my turn as a blogger for Skin Fair, which officially opens to the public in a weeks time. I am very excited about this and look forward to helping out hopefully not only both my fellow gentleman but also the gals as well.

It’s the weekend so I hope everyone has a chance to relax and take it easy; I’ll be back again with more from the virtual landscape so keep your eyes peeled until next time!

But you’re one in a million, you’ve got that shotgun shine
Born under a bad sign with a blue moon in your eyes

[#597] In The Garage

I’ve got an electric guitar
I play my stupid songs
I write these stupid words
And I love every one
Waiting there for me
Yes I do, I do

Weezer, ♫In The Garage

My apologies to those that might check the site for new content but this last week has been a bit hectic for me but it’s not for bad reasons at all. Usually I am not much for talking about things outside of my photos or certain themes but this is worth talking about in my mind. Our family has been looking to expand and that can often be scary in some instances but in mine and Brenna’s case it’s been pretty awesome.

Alyx (who we also call Elijah) has been a part of our lives for about a week now and sometimes I find it hard to connect with people but this young man is nearly a mirror of me in the fact that we both enjoy graphic work, movies and a whole bunch of other pop culture stuff that makes this seem much like fate (which not everyone believes in). I am not gonna get too much into things right now but I’m enjoying getting to spend time with and even get creative with him.

So what do two nerds that are creative do when they have a little free time? Well they get together and set up a photograph and I get to share my blog process with someone that is interested in it…definitely a win/win in my book.

Alyx introduced me to a new location called Midnight Glory which I would say is a photography sim with a lot of different mechanics to it to allow photo takers and bloggers to roam around and find an interesting spot within the design and being new to it, I told him to find a spot he really liked and it just happened that he has a good eye and it worked to my advantage. The area he found (a garage full of nerd stuff) prompted me to come up with the soundtrack to the post right away.

“In The Garage” has been a jam (I almost could say an anthem) for me for over 20 years and has lots of nerdy and geeky elements in both the verses and chorus. Making references to X-Men comic book characters to even members of the band kiss…but what really hit home is the opening verse talking about a “Dungeon Master’s Guide” which is what Dungeons and Dragons players have used for decades to tell stories of wizards, warriors, and mythic creatures. I was one of those who at the time when it wasn’t such the in thing to do got together with my friends on weekends (and once in a great while on a school night) and we’d have a blast rolling dice and trying to get through a story.

Continuing on with the theme of nerd power, my hair style is an homage to one of the best survival horror games of all time, “Resident Evil 2” which was re-released not long ago as an updated version which current generation graphics. Modulus released the “Leon Hair” at the beginning of the month at the FaMESHed event to commemorate and immortalize it in our virtual leg of the world.

I really like how the hair is parted and sweeps over the eyes without directly falling over them; I also have to say that it really excited me to see this because it was definitely a game I spent a lot of time on back when it was first released. Leon S. Kennedy was a character I grew very fond of and thought of as being a hero and relatable.

Modulus – Leon Hair

  • Original “Nex-Gen” Alpha Mesh
  • 5 Tone Color Pack HUDs + Integrated Tinting
  • 40 Color FATPACK also for sale
  • Left and Right mirrored versions included
  • Exclusive to FaMESHed until 02/25/19

After putting my look together (I didn’t take the photo for this blog right away so I’ve been wearing it for a bit), I was told that I was wearing a Canadian Tuxedo (again). This is not something I consider an issue as virtually I consider myself equals parts Irish and equals part Canadian so wearing this type of attire is my birthright right?

Cold-Ash’s newest release the “FLYNN Denim Jacket” is a major reason why I would suggest a shopping trip to The Men’s Department. I didn’t realize how much this jacket fit in with my overall theme until probably just now because these kind of jackets while still fashionable now were a big thing back in the 90’s which my mindset has been in during this entire blog process.

One of the features I like best about this jacket is that you do have the option to wear it with a built-in hooded sweatshirt or with a regular shirt; to me that makes it worth it just in that respect. Outside of the FATPACK, the event has 6 denim versions to purchase but if you want the best deal and all the options to change the color of the hoodie or shirt you are wearing with it, getting the whole shebang as they say is well worth it.

Cold-Ash – FLYNN Denim Jacket

  • Original Mesh
  • 3 Variations (Jacket Solo, Jacket with Hoodie or Jacket with Shirt)
  • 6 Denim Choices (+1 Fatpack Exclusive)
  • 8 Hoodie Colors
  • 8 Shirt Colors
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake) and Signature (Gianni)
  • Exclusive to The Men’s Department until 02/28/19

Alyx is wearing the latest hair from lock&tuft called “no joke” that is currently available at Shiny Shabby; Alyx is the creator and own of the brand as well. It’s not often that I have conversations with anyone that in turn inspire products that are brought to life within very little time as this hair has. We got to talking about hair styles and I had thrown out the idea for this style and he was willing to give it a shot; it is now at one of the big monthly shopping events for everyone to enjoy.

I will also be wearing this hair myself in an upcoming post but the idea will take some time to put together but I promise that it will be quite a bit of fun.

The quality of the hair is top notch and I can say this without bias as I’ve blogged the brand before these recent events and the color options and how things fit are definitely another reason to shop this store as there are many styles not just for men but also for women as well as unisex styles that will worth both ways. Longer messy styles are definitely in my wheelhouse of interest and I think Alyx’s overall look that he’s put together is pretty dang rad as well if I say so myself (and I do!)

lock&tuft – No Joke

  • Original unrigged mesh
  • Resizeable upon click
  • 5 color packs to choose from
  • FATPACK also available
  • Exclusive to Shiny Shabby until 03/16/19

On that note I feel like there are a lot of credits that have gone into this blog and getting through them to make sure that I’ve crossed my t’s and dottied my i’s is definitely going to take a moment which makes it that time to get this blog ready to post and start getting ready for the next one as I have been rather lethargic this week when it’s come to posting; the month is short enough as it is and I’ve still got some important things I want to share.

I want to say a big thank you to Alyx for joining me on this ride and we had a very good time. This was definitely the beginning of quite a few collaborations in the future if this is any indication because I enjoy working with others when ideas come to mind and with those I have worked with it has been nothing but great times and memories.

So long for now and enjoy the rest of the weekend!

[#549] Coming Apart

You’re the one thing I can’t, I can’t lose
You’re my one thing

Red, ♫Coming Apart (Deconstructed)

This month seems to be flying by so fast and I realize that if I blink again it’ll be over and I still have a few commitments to make to the brands I blog for. Getting my rear in gear as they say I spent most of this afternoon messing with lighting and several different angles before I finally came up with something that felt close to what I saw in my head.

Speaking of commitments I am proud to announce my new partnership with MooLoo Body Arts! I had a conversation with Mikey after I did my post for Then Men Jail using their tattoo and he liked it so much he offered me a spot on their team and I really like tattoos but had not really taken advantage of it much and thought there was no better time then now so I thank you for giving me this opportunity and I hope that I can do you and the brand proud!

The Men Jail is featured in this post as well and is represented by the “Wool 3/4 Length Pants” by Gild. It might not necessarily be the right time of year in the real world to wear pants like this but I am indoors and virtually I don’t have to deal with climate or weather unless I choose to (which is the best part about it). These pants have four different color choices and one patterned pair which I couldn’t resist for this photo.

Flowers may not be everyone’s cup of tea but I like how they look and the pattern is fantastic.

Gild Wool 3/4 Length Pants features:

  • Original Mesh
  • Four solid colors and 1 pattern for individual sale
  • FATPACK available
  • Fitted sizes for Belleza (Jake), Signature (Geralt, Gianni) and SLink Physique mesh bodies
  • Exclusively @ The Men Jail until November 28th

It would be foolish not to announce having a new brand partner and not feature one of their products out of the gate which brings the “Loser” Tattoo into focus. It is a full body tattoo that features several things that I like personally (Skulls, Wings and Lions of course!) I also like the words that go across the clavicle area which reads “Strength Through Loyalty” which is definitely something I can get behind as a message.

On the back there is a large diamond with the words “Diamonds Are Forever” scripted below it which is truly one of the toughest and most beautiful gems in history and can also describe people as well which makes this a tattoo one that I really like and am glad that I am getting the opportunity to feature it.

MooLoo is definitely growing as a brand and I see great things for them and of course the ways to reach them in-world as well as the marketplace are in the credits below and I recommend them to anyone looking for a new place to get ink that has exhausted their well of resources.

MooLoo Body Art Loser Tattoo features:

  • Full body unisex tattoo
  • Fresh (featured) and faded applier HUDs
  • Appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, Signature and SLink all in one

With plenty to do this week and the Thanksgiving holiday approaching in the next few days which will include some insane shopping deals that I will likely have a hard time passing up virtually (I don’t generally deal with the madness in the real world because it is much too frustrating). The pose that I am using (X.T.C.’s KJ Bento Pose Set) is a part of an early celebration called “Black Friday Bazaar” and started on the 17th and lasts until the 27th. This set was one that I know there are more than one pose that I’ll be using for photos in the future.

There are many great items available besides poses as there are things that deal with Christmas as well for anyone into decorating their living spaces.

Now with all the important information out there, I think it’s time to put this entry to bed (as is sometimes said in literary circles) and get to the next photo full of new (and possibly old items) for the world to see. Until the next post hits this site it’s on to the next conversation for me to turn into art.

[#547] Personal Responsibility

Ready to make
Ready to make, read’

Anyone, anything

Archive, ♫Bullets

While I am currently behind on the current season of The Walking Dead I kind of wanted do a post apocalyptic type photo. I scoured the different resources I had for sims and came across one I had yet to visit and after wandering around for a few moments I knew what I was going to do. This came a bit easier then I intended because I’ve been standing around trying to piece things together.

I decided to try out one of the new windlights by Battlescars which are free for just visiting the 6° Republic event and with a little tweaking and fine tuning I was able to get the right atmosphere I was looking for. I’m a big fan of Jay’s work and have used his other windlights over time and look even more forward to the stars release that will be coming out soon. The gift ones are well worth even just stopping at the event as there isn’t any pressure to buy anything though I found an item or two during my visit.

TMD has been a particularly good round this month and I’m glad to see that Hermony and TonkTastic have collaborated on some new graphic tees which I have the collection from last year that are awesome. This set is equally as great which makes it tough to choose one to feature (as there are 48 different designs in all) but I found one that best fit the setting.

When these two work together only good can come of it and being that I love graphic shirts like this in the real world, it makes me glad that I can have something just as cool in the virtual one that maybe has never been thought of before by any other clothing maker. Mad props to Hermanni and Tonk for creating such a wide variety for the consumer.

Hermony & TonkTastic Jersey Tee features:

  • Original Mesh
  • 48 designs to choose from (for sale individual sale)
  • 4 packs of 12 also for sale
  • Demo available
  • Exclusively @ The Men’s Department until Nov. 30th

The rest of my look consists of things I’ve filled in with items I’ve already blogged or that have been sitting waiting for me to use at the right time. Having a blog post where everything is new can be nice but it just winds up being a lot to cover and that means more writing (and I don’t mind it but I don’t want to suffocate a first time reader or one that is returning).

At the beginning of the blog I mentioned “The Walking Dead” and after I took the photo I couldn’t help but notice that my virtual self looks a bit like Rick Grimes. Others may or may not see it but it seems like later on in the series where he’s been out there in the world of the non living and has grown a beard and his hair had gotten longer. It wasn’t something that I did on purpose but I find it humorous that I noticed it well after I finished and it’s not a proper tribute but it works just the same.

Another post is now finished so I can begin getting ready for what’s next and this month there is just about as much to do as there was last month without all the craziness of it. Deadlines are still deadlines and I intend to crush them as I usually do, so all that is left is provide the credits and I’ll be back again with another conversation.

[#546] Habits

I eat my dinner in my bathtub
Then I go to sex clubs
Watching freaky people gettin’ it on
It doesn’t make me nervous
If anything I’m restless
Yeah, I’ve been around and I’ve seen it all

Our Last Night, ♫Habits
(Originally by Tove Lo)

I‘m fairly certain that just about everyone has someone in their life that they miss either from the past or the present (even though it’s usually better for it to be present as the past can be messy at best). My interpretation of “Habits” is a little different than the actual song depicts as I’m not a drug induced sex maniac missing their ex.

For me it’s more about just missing someone very deeply and also I have a pretty cool bathroom and bathtub that works out well with verses in the song.

Another thing I don’t often do is show a whole lot of skin but because I had picked up the “Tommy” towel from NOCHE in a previous round of Equal10 that I’d just go for the gold and see what I could come up with (and also it helped me feature the tattoo I have on). When I opened the package for the towel I was oddly impressed that it came with the regular towel along with a version where you are basically holding it open allowing for a view of the full monty and that is something I wouldn’t show regardless if there were anyone wanting to see it.

The towel also includes a HUD with a ton of different color options which I didn’t get fancy with because with the atmosphere I had going on a wild color wouldn’t have worked out well and while I am wearing the version for the Signature (Gianni) body it also includes a Belleza (Jake) size as well.

MooLoo has been around for a few months now and are a part of this round of The Men Jail with their “Cowboys & Indians” tattoo. It sticks to the theme having different depictions of things that would be associated with both cowboys and indians as the theme. Tattoos over the last couple years have been mix and match of different things thrown together but create meaningful tattoos and that is also what I’m seeing here.

The thing I like about the HUDs that are included (Black & Color in both fresh and faded) is that in them they have multiple ways to apply them (Belleza, Signature, SLink etc) all in one easy to use HUD. That is something that I don’t see often with tattoos as usually each specific type of applier has it’s own so excellent job to streamline and make putting them on easier.

MooLoo Cowboys & Indians Tattoo features:

  • 4 Appllier HUDs (Color/Fresh, Black/Fresh + Color/Faded, Black/Faded)
  • Appliers for Belleza, Omega, Maitreya, Signature and SLink
  • Exclusively @ The Men Jail until November 28th

As one of my blogger brands. I am consistently happy with the hair releases that Modulus puts out and I try to blog everything I can but I put priority on using the things I know will fit a scene I’ve built in my head first. In real life I probably wouldn’t grow or style my hair this way because I personally don’t like anything in my face (hair mostly though) but the virtual me loves it and that is because I don’t have to worry about styling or feeling it.

“Lee” is the latest addition to the brand’s hair collection that I would consider messy as quite a bit of it hangs in the front which I think for the type of photo I was doing it worked perfectly as I used the mirrored version that moved in the direction that my body was in the pose I chose. I am hoping that more messy styles come as future releases because I think I could work a few scenes out with that style.

Modulus Lee Hair features:

As I come to the conclusion of this blog post I think that sometimes doing things you normally don’t do have a way of paying off (potentially speaking) and if showing a little bit more than usual is a way to express myself differently it’s an avenue that I could give more though on in the future. I’m more of a reserved kind of guy but “letting loose” as it’s said can be freeing too.

There are some great products to be featured in the next few installments that I’m looking forward to seeing what I can do with them visually. November may pale in comparison in productivity but I do hope that I can continue to stay motivated like I have been this week to see to it that everything I want to post finds its way here.

It’s been my pleasure and I will be back soon with another conversation but until then be well.
