[#586] Slow

But it’s you who brought me here
You, through all these years

Grouplove, ♫Slow

Today is the last day for the Pose Fair and I have two posts that before the end of the day that will complete my coverage for the event. Overall I feel like posts I made with the poses have been some of my most inspired work lately. A third (maybe more like half) of my photos have been done with Brenna who has been really helpful in this whole process. In the past I never really did many couples poses because of timing or just ideas but whenever I ask her if she wants to do it there is never a complaint.

We came together to use a pose from a store that I am not familiar with. Lyrium Poses’ “Right Here” is a sweet couples pose that the name could not be better stated. During the process of taking this photo there was no place I wanted to be other than with her and I hope that the finished picture reflects just that. The closeness that this pose depicts really gave me a feeling as if time was standing still.

I’ll be keeping an eye out for future releases from Lyrium now that I know that I like what they’ve put up for sale at the fair.

Lyrium Poses – Right Here

  • Bento enabled couples pose (bento viewer needed)
  • Linked poseballs (can be edited to adjust for avatar difference)
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair until 01/26/19

My outfit is fairly simple and I combined one of the things from my closet (the “Ethan Tank” by Salt & Pepper and the “Steampunk Skinny Jeans” by Joker’s Asylum). I truly like the work done Joker’s Asylum and have purchased several items from the store in the past and I am friends with the owner so by featuring his work, I am showing my support the best I can. The tank goes well with just about anything and I like that it isn’t one of the thin strapped type of tanktops as in real life they bug me (not sure why but they do).

Brenna has been doing a lot more shopping then I have as of late and I’m kind of slacking when it comes down to it but I’ve been having a good time with some of the clothes I already have. It’s better to show that I still enjoy them instead of just blogging them when they are new and never looking at them again or ultimately tossing them away.

We both did our fair share of shopping at the new A+ event that just opened recently which has a diverse selection of items in just about every genre type you can think of. Her dress, the “Office Dress” by Kaithleens is really nice and is a proper attire with just that little hint of sexy going on. Personally I like that she chose the pink version because as nice as black would have been it would be too plain and dare I say boring.

As I write this it’s pretty late in the evening/early morning for some and I am considering just setting this up to post later in the morning but I am going to throw caution to the wind and get out there and then those who are enjoying their weekend will rise from their sleep and have something to look at. One of the things I enjoyed doing before I became a blogger was to check my favorite sites the moment I settled in at the computer after breakfast (or sometimes lunch).

On that note it is time for me to leave you with the credits to go get some shut eye so I can get started on my final post for Pose Fair. This has been a really fun thing to blog with and I am looking forward to the February “Pop-Up” Valentine’s Edition of Pose Fair to visit more great poses to take pictures of Brenna and I with to put in frames in our home.

Take care until next,

B

P.S. Thank you, Lucky, for allowing us to borrow your home for this photo shoot!!!

[#583] I Wanna Dance With Somebody

Clock strikes upon the hour
And the sun begins to fade
Still enough time to figure out
How to chase my blues away

Bootstraps, ♫I Wanna Dance With Somebody
Originally Performed By Whitney Houston

One of the things that excites me about Pose Fair is all the ideas that come from the items official bloggers receive to help promote the stores and the event itself. I am taking full advantage of this by doing something fun with the Vol. 1 Male and Female Dance Poses by CuCa Poses. From the exact moment the ad was released I had a solid idea cemented in my head.

It is an added bonus that “All Night Long Bacdrops” by illuZion are both gifts to visitors to Pose Fair. The poses and the backdrop that I am using in black (pink is also available) work hand in hand to provide a great scene for club life. My days of going to clubs have long since past (though the desire to go to them when I could was fairly low) but at least it is much different in the virtual world.

My first thought going into using these poses was that I wanted to showcase both the male and female ones and gives me a reason to include Brenna. She has a great style and could easily be a blogger if she wanted to be but I respect that it is not her thing; at least I can ask her to pose for me and she does it without hesitation and offers inspiration that is valuable.

Each of these sets has 6 poses with an added bonus pose for purchasers of the FATPACKS with mirror versions included also. I had fun going through the sets to choose the two best poses for Brenna and I to ensure that our motions look as fluid as possible.

CuCa Poses – Male Dances Vol. 1 / Female Dances Vol. 1

  • Bento enabled poses (bento viewer needed for proper use)
  • Pose Stand and Static Poses in each pack.
  • Single poses sold individually as well as in a FATPACK option
  • 6+1 Exclusive FATPACK Poses (Mirrors included)
  • Vol. 2 sets are also available
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair until 01/26/19

Another sure thing when I began planning this scene is I knew what song would be the theme for it but I decided to go with a twist. “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” was the only true choice that I could go with and it’s one of the songs that put Whitney Houston on the map but I decided to use the cover version by Bootstraps which pays tribute to the original in an amazing way.

Either version would have been great to use but going with the more recent version was easier to decide on because everyone knows Whitney’s original version and I wanted to share with readers the cover because I am a fan of Bootstraps and if others find his work through me and enjoy it then it puts a smile onto my face.

There are very few things that are better than discovering new music.

For the ladies who love gachas (and I can safely say that many as well as us fellas do) there is the {Date Night} dress set from Vanilla Bae. If you are not familiar with this store and it would surprise me if there was someone who didn’t, they offer clothing that through scripting can be removed to show what I would politely refer to as unmentionables. They do offer unscripted versions for women that are not into that kind of attire. This set includes several versions of the Corset Dress which Brenna is wearing the short version (there is a much longer one with a slit along the side). The two RARE versions are both of the dresses in the adult version in all the colors offered, however, they are called Lootbox 1 and 2 because of the event they are in (which is called LOOTBOX).

On that note I think I have left you with enough information on this blog entry and look forward to the next few as I start to wind down my coverage for Pose Fair. This has been a very productive month for myself and the blog and if recent developments pan out (vague I know) there will be even more exciting things to share with all of you.

Keep your heads up and also the conversation (topic doesn’t matter!) It has been my honor and I will be back again very soon with another installment.

All the best,

B

[#578] Addicted

I don’t mind pretending I’m someone else, whoever you want me to be
As long as I’m inside you, you’ll never want me to leave
It’s the way you want it

The Blank Theory, ♫Addicted

In my last blog I peeled a few layers off of what my normal blog style is usually and with that mindset, I chose to take it a little further even and get Brenna involved in the process; she was absolutely encouraging and wonderful with this process as I push my boundaries even further. With the help of RM Poses, we were able to explore uncharted territory in my photography and blogging portfolio.

“Strawberries For You” is a couples pose that shows a sensual side of feeding your lover the tasty fruit. I find that this pose is classy and has great views in several different directions, which I’ve explored as well during the photo session for this blog post (and why wouldn’t I all things considered). I have to make a note to those who might be interested in this pose because of the fact that with how it is set up there is some adjusting that will need to be done especially if both avatars are of different heights. It’s a fantastic pose and I’m glad I got the opportunity to be able to use it.

RM Poses – Strawberries For You Pose and Prop

  • Bento enabled couples pose (bento viewer required for use)
  • Pose stand with built in tray of strawberries and mouth strawberry
  • Exclusively @ Pose Fair until 01/26/19

Also like my last blog I have a few more items from The Men Jail event to just about wrap up my coverage for January. With showing more skin if that is what I’m going to do then why not show ink on my pixels as I do have some in the real world but not as much as I can have in the virtual landscape. “The Demon Horror” Tattoo by KAOS Tattoos is definitely an interesting look and lives up to its name.

With tattoos I tend to usually only apply the light versions but it is also nice to have the medium and dark options as well just in case I were to ever change my mind. I just have a weird way with tattoos and the dark (or fresh as I refer to it as) option just doesn’t really translate virtually as it does in the real world. It isn’t the fault of any tattoo makers it is just what they have to work with. This is a creative design and I could also see wearing it during a role-play situation where a character might be into a darker lifestyle.

Many times I have said that I don’t blog accessories like necklaces or bracelets often but I could not pass up the opportunity to take a look at the “Dan Bracelet” by NaaNaa’s. It is a beaded style with all the things I happen to like (such as skulls and a cross) which given the overall theme of this post makes a lot of sense as “Addicted” by The Blank Theory serves as the soundtrack to this post. I feel like it could be interpreted many ways as how the addiction party plays out but I’m going with the human interaction aspect of it.

KAOS Tattoo – Demon Horror

  • Belleza, Maitreya, Omega and SLink Appliers included
  • 3 tones to choose from (Light, Medium and Dark)
  • Exclusively @ The Men Jail until 01/28/19

NaaNaa’s – Dan Bracelet

  • Original mesh
  • Resizable
  • 5 metals changeable via HUD
  • Left and right bracelets included
  • Exclusively @ The Men Jail until 01/28/19

Modulus is once again back as my hair stylist with their latest, the “Bailey Hair” that is currently at Equal10. There are a lot of quality events that Modulus releases products at but I think Equal10 is truly the most visual appealing because of the cool retro 80’s layout. I could be a bit biased because that is something I know a little bit about.

This is a short to medium length hair swept off to the sides (which you can choose with both left and right versions of the hair). It’s also nice that their are little flyaway strands which is something I can tell you Modulus excels at and it’s not flat hair that doesn’t have any kind of action or movement because who wants that? On top of that the brand gets better and better all the time which keeps its core base of loyal shoppers coming back with more joining the family every day.

Modulus – Bailey Hair

  • 100% original “nex-gen” alpha mesh
  • 5 Color HUD packs + integrated tinting within HUD
  • 40 color FATPACK also available
  • Left and right mirror versions
  • Exclusively @ Equal 10 until 02/05/19

Some other notes to cover is that Brenna has a few event release items as well which consist of the “NaturalLite Lashes #2” by Mai Bilavio and “Glow” tattto by Speakeasy that can both be found at the Access event. For the fellas that might have significant women in their lives I can definitely recommend the “Simplicity Lingerie” by Moon Amore that is waiting to be had at Collabor88. This is certainly an attention grabber that any lingerie connoisseur will want to have in their collection.

Lastly, with the amount of blogs I have posted this month, it should give a lot of reasons to go hit the hot events and take a look at what is new across the grid. If I were a regular customer, I would certainly be browsing all of these events hoping to find fun things. On that note I think it is time to wrap things up and get things set for the next blog which I’m not sure what I’m going to do yet as I can now actively blog any item from the Pose Fair I choose so that gives me a lot of options and perhaps way too many ideas.

Keep the conversations going and perhaps maybe I started some new ones just now!
