[#431] Little Saint Nick

Just a little bobsled we call it old Saint Nick
But she’ll walk a toboggan with a four speed stick
She’s candy-apple red with a ski for a wheel
And when Santa hits the gas, man, just watch her peel

Little Saint Nick♫ – Beach Boys

Even though I feel like this is still way way too early to be doing these kind of posts. To plead my case is that I’m featuring a new pose that right now is available at “The Naughty List” event. So that at least gives me cause and some justification though I would normally wait a little bit longer to do Christmas themed posts as I tend not to do them well.


Consider this the beginning of These Conversations Kill’s seasons greetings. I have to admit that while this scene is a little racy compared to my usual offerings, I thought it would be a little fun and give this pose it’s due. Image Essentials has provided the Naughty List (4) pose as a part of my partnership with them and as I said above it is at “The Naughty List” event which runs from the 9th of December until the 31st so there’s plenty of time. Not only is there two poses for the fellas there are other poses in this series. Go check out the event and see if there’s something that might aid you in creating your 2017 Christmas Card!


The above shot I have to say gives me a bit of a chuckle. The way I took it seems to imply that “Hipster” Santa as I refer to the look as…is doing something more than just inspecting the Christmas tree. However, I assure you that there weren’t any shenanigan’s of any sort going on. At least it was fun to take a break from my more serious blog posts.


Also featuring in this post are one of the new releases from MESANGE that is available at We Love RP. I’m also wearing a hair that is a part of a new group from Taketomi and Burley brands respectively. I’ll give you a little more info about it down in the credits section. Many people are going to be excited about this I can assure you.

That’s about all I have to say for this portion of the entry so let me usher you to the credits for more information about the products and events that are featured in the look/scene.

Onto the next conversation…

HAIR⊱ BURLEY – Xander – Fatpack @ Taketomi ClubNEW

I’m sure you are asking “What is Taketomi Club?” This is where I tell you! It is a new in-world group (joining fees apply but at the moment it is incredibly cheap) where both Taketomi and Burley release new items every two weeks for the price of 50L for a FATPACK. That’s right you can get an entire set of hair for almost nothing. However after the two weeks the price of the current hair release will go up to 450L (which is still quite affordable). This is a really great opportunity for hair enthusiasts to be able to get entire packs of hair.

The “Xander” hair that I’m wearing in this current look comes with a mirror HUD so that you can wear the hair on either side of your head and also all the color HUDs to suit your desires. It’s too good of a deal to pass up so I encourage you to take the taxi provided here and become a part of a something extraordinary.

HEADLeLutka – Andrea v 3.1

EYEBROWS⊱ [bellvi] Basic Brows #1 ♯ Marketplace

EYES⊱ MESANGE – Anjali Eyes – BEAUTY PACK @ We Love RPNEW

The latest round of We Love RP once again has a new eye release from MESANGE which is full of vibrant colors (15 in all) to choose from. The value of a whole pack of eyes as far as a photographer such as myself is always a good thing because it offers a different look multiple times. The package comes with mesh eyes with HUD as well as an Omega Applier HUD for eyes that are compatible with the system (CATWA, LeLutka, etc…)

TREE<Heart Homes> “The Christmas Express” Tree ♯ NEW

Part of the centerpiece for this scene…because what is Christmas without a tree? This tree comes in several versions (Regular, FAMILY, and Adult for those who really want to be naughty) and is very detailed and would look great in just about any home setting. Taking the taxi to the store will give you the option to test all the versions of the tree to see which best fits your individual needs.

IE – Naughty List 4 (b) @ The Naughty ListNEW

The primary item that started the whole process of making this scene happen. The package comes with two versions of the pose (a simple static pose as well as a rezzable poseball version which is what I used). The best part about it that it includes the Santa Hat that I am wearing to accessorize and truly be the bringer of the jolly. I really got a kick out of this pose and look forward to working with the other male pose in the next little while.

[#430] We’re Far From Obvious This Time

Cold
But I’m still here (blind)
‘Cause I’m so blind (say never)
Cold
Now we’re so cold (mine)
And you’re not mine (say never)
We’re far from obvious this time

Cold (But I’m Still Here)♫ – Evans Blue

Hello once again and welcome to my little artistic corner of the world where I try my best to provide works of art intermixed with fashion and multifaceted emotions. Now is that time of year when all the clothing designers start releasing oodles and oodles of winter attire and all the various locations in-world become wintery reminders of your real life that you desperately try to escape from (haha). Regardless of that it does add to the realism of everything and can make for some really good creativity.


I recently discovered the snowy wonderland known as D.O.X and after a little bit of exploration I decided to set a scene. I pulled together some really cool items for my look that were definitely weather appropriate (because who goes out in a snowy cold environment in like a t-shirt or shorts?) One of the best things is that I didn’t have to cycle through tons of lighting to find the right ambience; I simply just used the recommended settings from the sim itself. The results came out satisfactory for me and helps me to feel like I am on a good stride as far as creating scenes goes.


Men Only Monthly has been a very good event this current round which is still going on for another week (it ends on the 15th of December). I spent a lot of time there and found many things that I’ve used in my recent works which is why I decided to put my name in the ring and applied to be a blogger for the event. I am hoping that I get in but I realize that the competition may be fierce as I am sure many other good bloggers/artists will be vying for a spot. It’ something I felt was worth giving a shot and regardless I can say I tried even if I do not make the cut.

This particular blog I’m featuring a skin by Avi-Glam which is available at Men Only Monthly. Of course you’ll get my insights into it down in the credits section so I have something to actually put there.

Most of items from currently running events came from Men Only Monthly but I did also make a trip to The Arcade which has just opened for a new round of random prize winning madness. I am thankful that I managed to escape there with only minimal damage this time which is a small victory for me personally!


Before I leave you to the credits, I have to make an admission of a goof. As I was putting the credits together I realized that I hadn’t worn the Daniel head for a while and cannot recall which eyes I had last used with it so I couldn’t credit it in good faith because if I was wrong it would to me be considered as misinformation and that is not my intention at all. If I do recall which eyes were used I will come back to this post and edit it accordingly.

There is much more work to do with items I’ve picked up in the last week so I’m going to go jump into that as this blog entry can be considered a wrap. I hope you check back to see what adventures I’m getting into next and I will gladly welcome you back.

Onto the next conversation…

HAIRtram G0220 Hair / HUD-A

HEADCATWA – Daniel

FACE⊱ AG. Trevor Skin – Ivory @ M.O.MNEW

The latest release in the Avi-Glam skin line, Trevor has very soft facial features and seems to work best with wearing the CATWA “Daniel” head as that is what is suggested by the creator. There are 6 skin tones to choose from and appliers for male mesh bodies are sold separately. The body shape and eyebrow shaper are included in the product package if you desire. Each skin HUD gives several eyebrow color options when applying (no brows is also an option).

I find that this skin reminds me of the actor, Ezra Miller, who appears as The Flash/Barry Allen in the recently released “Justice League” movie. I am not sure if that is what the creator intended with this but that’s just what I see when I look at my avatar closely.

JACKET⊱ BlankLine – Down jacket **RARE** @ The ArcadeNEW

Rarely do I find myself wearing a puffer jacket (see what I did there?) This pull prize from BlankLine’s machine at the December 2017 edition of The Arcade has a HUD option in which you can change two parts of the jacket as well as 4 different types of sweater. After having looked at the key for the machine I believe this RARE version is all of the other jackets offered as a FATPACK sort of deal where you can use all of the colors in any combination you wish to. It’s a fantastic product and the design and textures used are top notch.

COMPATIBLE WITH: Belleza and Signature mesh bodies.

PANTS⊱ AITUI – Aero Pants – Fat Pack @ M.O.MNEW

Lately I am finding that AITUI is hitting a home-run with their releases. Previously in a blog entry I was wearing their sweatpants from the November round of TMD and really liked them and they also in the same time frame put out these pants at Men Only Monthly. I have been trying to be more of a well behaved blogger and not buy every FATPACK I see because it tends to get costly in the long term but all the different options for this item caught my eye and I couldn’t resist. 6 different colors with two metals to choose from on the buttons are what this full pack consists of. You can also get each of these in singular form if you do not want all of the options and that’s definitely up to you.

COMPATIBLE WITH: Belleza, Signature, SLink and TMP mesh bodies.

BOOTSYasum – Generator Boots – Black

I previously purchased these boots at the Hipster Men’s Event in one of the previous rounds but could not find the right outfit to pair them with until now. I was really hoping I could use them and I found a way to do so. The AITUI pants had just the right height to where I could wear these properly without any clipping (which bugs me to no end).

COMPATIBLE WITH: Belleza and Signature male bodies.

Go&See * Bold * Bento Pose Pack (2) @ M.O.MNEW

The second of two new pose releases from Go&See, “Bold” is just as it’s name infers. These poses are meant for those who like to puff out their chest a little bit and show what they are about. I really like the poses so far from the brand but if I could change anything about them is with most poses you can combine them with a locking T-Pose so you can stand there and not have your camera move with you as you are setting up an angle. These do not allow for that so a pose stand is necessary so you do not wind up frustrated because your camera keeps resetting and your position changes. It’s something that’s also helpful for sims that do not have rez rights groups and you really want to use it for a scene.

[#429] Let’s All Make Believe

So let’s all make believe
That we’re still friends and we like each other
Let’s all make believe
That in the end we’ll need each other

Let’s All Make Believe♫ – Oasis

The last few days have been somewhat of a rush out in the real world and I have to admit that I did this photo shoot a few days ago with the intention of getting it put out nearly as soon as I finished taking the pics. However, life and a case of laziness hit me and so it just ended up taking a little longer than I anticipated. The end results though are pleasing to me and I feel like maybe I’m starting to get some of my creative mojo back after having thought I’d lost it a little bit. Artists of all types go through these periods and it is understandable the pressure we put on ourselves to create better work than what has come before it.


I did a little exploring and found an interesting new place that I have never been to before called The Dirty Grind. It’s not as winterized as most of the other locations on the grid so I had an easier time committing to doing the scene here especially after I found the broken merry go round; that is what sold my interest. That one piece in the scene tells a lot about the current status in the world and also fits in with the music theme I picked.


In this post I’m featuring a brand new hair from my brand partner, Modulus. The brand took some time to better perfect their hair making and from this release and some previews of upcoming releases it is an exciting time for us fellas out there who are always on the lookout for new ‘dos. Once again I’m wearing the “Hope Eyes” from Avi-Glam as I just can’t seem to pull myself away from them at the moment. I didn’t take any closeups in this shoot because I am wearing the Fern color that I wore in the last blog post.

There’s now a new round of The Men’s Department (TMD) open with a bunch of great items (such as the Modulus hair I’ve just mentioned). Events I’ve also been to that items from this look are from include Shiny Shabby and also Men Only Monthly (MOM).


There’s plenty more events and things to cover so I’m going put this baby to bed and start working on my next adventure and who knows where I’ll end up. With such a vast landscape and tools at my fingertips anything is possible. I’ll definitely see you again upon your return as we all look forward as it is much better than dwelling on the past regardless of it’s brightness or darkness.

Onto the next conversation…

HAIR⊱ Modulus – Alex Hair – FatPack @ TMDNEW

Taking a new direction with hair creation, Chucky Hollak and Modulus are taking the brand to a whole new level. This is the first release in the “Alpha Hair” line and as I stated above this is very exciting. I have actually spoken to him recently and he is just as excited about creating hair again and delivering quality to the men of Second Life. From wearing this hair and having blogged other Modulus releases in the past, I can tell you that the level of detail has definitely increased along with top notch textures. 5 color HUDs are available (they also come together in the FATPACK version) and each color pack has 5 colors to choose from as well as a tinting mechanism to get your hair just exactly how you want it.

HOODIEFashionNatic – STING FATPACK

Hooded sweatshirts are never out of fashion and if you are like me, you can never have just one laying around. Some have that one that is just their favorite and no matter how many you buy after it, it’s the one you always go to when you are headed out the door. When I saw the advert for this hoodie I thought it was really cool especially with the built in shirt (there is an option to wear it without the shit also). I felt the FATPACK was the best option to go with because of all the different combinations you can come up with and have control over. The value of it is really good as well.

BODY COMPATIBILITY: Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature (2 versions), SLink and TMP male bodies.

JEANS⊱ ED. W4ST Pant Rusted @ M.O.MNEW

Eclipse Designs have always had great clothing as far as I can remember but they haven’t always fit the body I’ve been wearing at the time. They have now released a product that fits the Belleza body and I couldn’t be more happy. These jeans are a cool concept because they mix the damaged/destroyed look with a bit of 80’s fashion with patches with studs in them. Most people would deny this but many back in that time had a studded bracelet and listen to bands like Motley Crue and Kiss.

BODY COMPATIBILTY: Altamura, Belleza, Signature and SLink male bodies.

SHOESFLI. – Black Canvas

One of my favorite pairs of shoes and now that they’ve been updated for the Belleza body it gives me more reason to drag out of my shoe closet. There’s nothing new about them other then the body updates so I don’t have anything more to share insight wise. These are just great shoes…period.

WRONG & The Owl. Static Male Poses #8 (4)

I picked this set of poses up at one of last months events and somehow managed to move them in my inventory closet in a place they shouldn’t have been (likely by accident). I stumbled across them while looking for something else and found one in the set I liked for the setting of the scene. There are 5 poses in this pack and all of them are excellent and something I can use in the future.

I do whatever it takes to make it
Break through anything I’m face to face with
It’s true, you gonna make me lose my patience

Whatever It Takes♫ – Hollywood Undead

This blog entry has been over a year in the making and I’m so glad it finally happened. Once again I’ve paired up with the super talented fellow swag master, Nile from the Double Trouble blog to bring you a super awesome collaboration. We have both been wanting to work together again since our first initial collaboration for Halloween last year. Schedules as you know don’t always permit but we finally were able to pin a day down to knock this out and man did we ever.


When I first saw the shopping guide for the Men Only Monthly event I knew that I just HAD to do something with the Heist gacha from BlankLine. When I came up with the idea for what Nile and I were going to do it was just natural that we put together a scene using some of the items from it. We both took different looks for our type of bank robber with Nile taking a more urban approach and me going with a more classical old school bank robber. Both of us gear up with BPV’s (Bullet Proof Vests) to keep us safe in case we encountered any trouble from the 5-0.


Products that I’m featuring in this post mostly comprise of items from the BlankLine gacha which is currently up for sale at Men Only Monthly; so if you yourself have an idea for a gangster or bank heist type composition that’s a good place to start with.

I’m also once again featuring the “Hope Eyes” from Avi-Glam (a brand partner) for this look because I am really enamored with the eyes in this set and their detail is fantastic. There is not one color out of this set that I wouldn’t wear for a shoot if it was what called for it.


As I wrap up another entry I look back at the process of this collaboration and I could be more happy or excited with how it turned out; I also look forward to future collaborations with Nile as well as anyone else who’d like to do team-up in the upcoming year. 2018 will be one of more collaborations and working with people who I admire as well as want to work with to try new things.

For more information on Nile and his blog, Double Trouble, just click on the blog name which is linked and there you’ll get to see his other works as well as work from his co-author, Macie, you’ll also be able to see his version of this shoot as well as his style credits!

That’s all I’ve got for this adventure be sure to check back again for the road ahead and it’s been an honor and a pleasure.

Onto the next conversation…

HAIRStealthic – Psycho

This was one of my Black Friday sale goodies as I really liked this hair and knew that I could find something good to use it with. When this scene idea came into my head I knew it was the prefect hair for me to use. I originally was going to pair it with one of the face wraps in the BlankLine gacha but I opted to leave my face uncovered as it was post robbery. This hair has 6 different color HUDs to choose from as well as a HUD for changing the color of the beanie. What’s even cooler about this is there is a styling HUD to change the appearance of the hair in different positions and styles.

HEADLeLutka – Andrea v 3.1

EYES⊱ AG. Hope Eyes – Fern @ Shiny ShabbyNEW

For a second straight post (if you check back at my last entry you’ll get more info on this product) I’m wearing these eyes but went with the Fern color as it matched the scene considering all the money that is around the two bank robbers.

OUTFIT⊱ BlankLine – Gang Bullet Proof Vest Suits (02) RARE @ M.O.MNEW

It wasn’t an easy task much as robbing a bank would be I imagine to pull this item from the machine being that it is a RARE. Though I persevered so that I could use it for this look as it was an integral part of the scene that I was setting up. As with my usual blogs I post what bodies my clothes and accessories work with but this suit does not specify, however, I believe that it would work with just about any male body with alphas clicked off. I’m wearing the Belleza body and it looks good without any problems.

SHOES[MODA] BLAKE OXFORDS

GLOVES⊱ BlankLine – Gang Glove @ M.O.MNEW

Another part of BlankLine’s “Heist” gacha, these gloves are bento enabled and I alpha’d out my hands and this worked great with my body in combination with the suit and the pose. These are definitely something that would be fun to mess around with on other projects so it is something that could be used again and has a high re-use value. Worth a pull of the gacha or if you know someone that will trade or give you a copy it’s well worth it.

WRONG & The Owl. Human Race @ M.O.MNEW

I managed to find 3/4 of all that was used in this scene at Men Only Monthly, including this pose. What was really nice about this pose as that it needed no adjusting other than a minor tweak of my body shape which wasn’t even that big of a deal. I thought this really captured the tone of the two robbers settling in after heist and celebrating their victory in front of their spoils. This is also a great pose you can use with a really good friend or even a family member for a photo.

[#427] Swing Life Away

I’ve been here so long, I think that it’s time to move
The winter’s so cold, summer’s over too soon
Let’s pack our bags and settle down where palm trees grow

Swing Life Away♫ – Rise Against

It’s not very often that I actually shoot any scenes from my own house but I didn’t really feel like using a backdrop or finding a location to set up in so I came up with an idea that allowed me to stay where I was at. I enjoyed how I was able to combine good ambience with lighting and of course my instant go to LUMIPro. Personally I feel like this is a small victory because it was fun to come up with and it was not stressful to put together.


When I first started putting this together, I didn’t have a song that was an inspiration as often times I do before going into setting up a scene. As I was thinking about various genre’s of music I knew I wanted something laid back; I almost automatically recalled “Swing Life Away”. It had the right feel and helped me with getting the best visual with the look and poses I combined.


As I was taking photos from different angles from close and further away, I found myself liking a majority of them so for this entry I added an extra shot I found favorable in addition to my main “storytelling” shot and the usual two featured product close-ups.


Brand partners that I am featuring in this entry’s look consist of Avi-Glam (eyes) and Image Essentials (Poses). I managed to go out and do a little shopping outside of the search for bargains during the Black Friday events and checked out a new event called District 23 (not to be confused with the District 20 event that I have intentions of covering) as well as another stop to The Men’s Department.


Now that you’ve had the chance to look at what I’ve put into this look, I’ll leave you with the style credits (which are as complete as they possibly can). I believe these stores and events have something for just about every fella out there and even some of the gals as well. Enjoy your next shopping excursion and remember to pick up demos before deciding on a purchase as there is nothing worse then buyer’s remorse (and I know we’ve all been there). Thanks for joining me for this adventure and I will see you again soon.

Onto the next conversation…

HAIR+elua+ Pippa Black Pack

During the course of my Black Friday shopping excursion I decided to see what +elua+ had going on as far as hairstyles considering I have not visited the shop in some time. I did not find anything in the regular hairstyles but I did see the gacha machine that this hair is from and played it to be able to get a black pack of this hair and with a little size adjusting it was perfect on my head. Personally I like having longer hair on my pixels during what I would consider the fall/winter season even though some places don’t really observe because it is unnecessary (we are pixels after all ha!)

HEADLeLutka – Andrea v 3.1

EYES⊱ AG. Hope Eyes – Aqua @ Shiny ShabbyNEW

Eyes are often the best feature on a person because when you look into someone’s eyes it has been said that you can look into their soul; this new set of eyes like previous Avi-Glam releases does not disappoint. 24 different iris colors (including the one you can see a close-up of in the product shot above) that come in 3 sizes. These are excellent for everyday wear and for those of you who may not be bloggers or photographers could easily be a great permanent eye to wear. Mesh eyes are included in the package and a FATPACK is also available.

COMPATIBLE With: CATWA, OMEGA, and regular (for included mesh eyes) applier HUDs.

FACEStray Dog – Cody T2

TATTOO⊱ { Speakeasy } Storm Tattoo @ District 23NEW

Very seldom do I wear or feature body ink as I’ve expressed before in previous entries but it’s not for lack of liking them. Most of the time it’s for the fact I wear products that would generally cover them up and would defeat the purpose of wearing them. When I was putting this current look together I saw an add for this tattoo and knew that I would not be wearing anything on the upper half of my body. The tattoo comes in three different opacity types (Fresh, Worn, and Faded) and you can get it at District 23 along with other types of ink and poses to enjoy.

COMPATIBLE With: Omega, Signature and TMP applier HUDs.

PANTS⊱ AITUI – Sweat Pants – Loyalty, Grey @ TMDNEW

Only a few more days left for the current round of TMD to get your hands on these sweatpants by AITUI. There are several different designs and colors available at the event but they are definitely great for just lazing around your dwelling while you are AFK or just relaxing doing nothing. I think these are really cool and very well made.

COMPATIBLE With: Belleza, Signature, SLink and TMP male bodies.

IE – Daily Things (b) (1 / 3) @ Designer CircleNEW

I really do enjoy taking poses that are not meant normally for males and putting them to work for me. This great set of poses (5 total with mirrors) also comes with two pose props (a phone and a magazine). The poses depict motions some of us make in our normal routines which is why to me the name of the set is appropriate. You can pick this up at the Designer Circle event which is open until the 2nd of December so there is still time…hurry!

[#426] In A World So Cold

Now I don’t believe men are born to be killers
I don’t believe the world can’t be saved
How did it get here and when did it start?
An innocent child with a thorn in his heart?

World So Cold♫ – 12 Stones

How’s it going everyone? I thought I’d take a step back from all the events and shopping madness that’s been going on over the past few days and just put together something that I thought was fun. I chose to dip into the nerd pool with a few shout outs to some things I enjoy in the real world. Putting this scene together was refreshing because I didn’t feel any kind of pressure to try and figure out the perfect angle to display a product. It was just doing something for the heck of it and if it turned out then so be it.

I thought it might be fun to delve into an undead apocalypse since I haven’t done so in a while and it seems these shots tend to go well for me in an inspirational sense. I carried over the Blake Oxfords from the last shoot because I just like them so much and knew they’d go with the rest of the outfit I planned on wearing. Everything else is a mixture of different things I purchased recently from events that have past or just stores I traveled to.

Unfortunately one of my favorite parts of this look, the “Snakehood” by KROVA is no longer available for sale. I had found it on the marketplace late last year and apparently the owner had removed some of his older merchandise and replaced it with newer things. One of the things I liked about it is that there were several different visor looks that resemble a certain “Real American Hero” that was a badass ninja who never uttered a word. Some of you will get who I am referring to and for the rest of you I’ll just say that you missed out on something cool.

This happens to be one of the easiest put together scenes and shoots that I’ve had in a while and felt effortless. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did creating it and it gets your creative fluids moving to find a location or build to take some cool photos. I also encourage you to give all the stores that I’ve put in this scene as well. They work hard to create products that people will want to take home with them.

Now that I’ve said just about all I can about this entry I’ll leave you to look over the entire style credits as I prepare for the next adventure wherever it may lead me.

Onto the next conversation…

BODYBelleza – Jake

MASK⊱ [KROVA] Snakehood ♯ Not Available
As previously mentioned this item is no longer being sold and it makes me sad because I think anyone who might want it now after seeing it here will be disappointed. Maybe the creator will bring it back at some point in time as it is not technically an old item as far as mesh standards go. I’ve enjoyed this brand’s role-play style products for years now and they continue to keep making cool things.

SUITMeshmerized – Padded Suit
After seeing an ad for this item I instantly became a fan. Very few items of clothing in world have glove like sleeves and I like touches such as that so I sought out the store to pick it up. It comes with a HUD to color change the suit with 4 different colors for the top and bottom. I think the only thing I would change about this and it is not a complaint by any means is I would have added a white suit to the other colors provided; I think it would have made for an interesting look.

COMPATIBLE With: Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature, Tweenster (2 Sizes) and Maitreya for the gals.

SHOES⊱ [MODA] BLAKE OXFORDS @ Man CaveNEW

BACKDROPSAYO – The Undead Heard You
I would have loved to have come up with this idea around Halloween time when I first found this backdrop. It’s got a great feel to it and sets the undead apocalypse mood very high. The Zombies that are after me are not apart of the scene, they come from a prop from COME SOON Poses and the gun props are from a pose set by the brand Perimeter.

Animosity x Schitt – Apocalypse Pose Pack (6 / 3)
One of my Black Friday shopping purchases, I thought these poses would work great for what I was planning to do even before I fully committed to doing it. I honestly do like the poses that Animosity does and that’s not just some bs session. I honestly enjoy the poses they release as I have been able to create some good scenes with the ones I have bought in the past.

[#425] Ho Hey!

I don’t think you’re right for him
Look at what have might have been

Ho Hey♫ – The Lumineers

I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday weekend (those of you who celebrate/observe Thanksgiving). Most everyone is enjoying leftovers while going over some of their real life shopping excursions. I am a little bit under the weather so I haven’t really been out as there really wasn’t much that caught my fancy but I did manage to hit some sales in-world bringing home some new poses to intermingle with some of my scenes.

With the last few days focusing on those that I’m thankful for: family, friends and colleagues but this year I’m most thankful for the special person in my life. She’s certainly helped me see a lot of things that I might not have before and this scene and song choice is dedicated to her.

I have some really cool things I am featuring from my brand partners in this look. Modulus has returned to making hair and at the Industrie event, they have released the “Max” hat and hair combination. I’ve even had the pleasure of speaking with the owner of Modulus, Chucky Hollak, and I have it on good authority that this is only the beginning and there will be new future hairstyles in the works. If this is the beginning of something new then consider me excited.

MESANGE has new eyes up for sale at the newly restocked Men Only Monthly for Nov/Dec. Of course I will give you the details down below in the credits so I can keep this as short and sweet for you as possible. I tend to get long winded at times when I have things I like and want to talk about.

Another new exciting thing is Go&See who are well known for skins for both men and women as well as eyes have ventured into the pose market. One of their first set of four male pose releases is also available at Men Only Monthly. More on those as well down in the credits as well.

With having had several items from Industrie and Men Only Monthly in the last few posts, I’m also giving some love to ULTRA, The Men’s Department and Man Cave in this post. I find that a small amount of events always get the most attention from me and it’s not that I don’t visit other events, it just seems I am just find more that suits my style. I’m always on the look out for new events and brands to feature in my looks/scenes and that won’t change.

It’s that time for me to turn you over to the credits and more of my little observations/ramblings if you will as this adventure has reached it’s finishing point. I hope to see you back again the next time for whatever idea my brain churns out so be well until then!

Onto the next conversation…

HAIR⊱ Modulus – Max Hat & Hair @ IndustrieNEW
This hat is very well made with great texturing and has a HUD to change its color. The tuft of hair that hangs out in front also offers 5 different color packs that you can pick from or you can pick up the FATPACK and wear it however you are feeling on that day.

HEADLeLutka – Andrea v 3.1

EYES⊱ MESANGE – Lihir Eyes @ M.O.MNEW
The colors in these 15 new eyes really draw you in as there is a main color with little bits of other colors swirled in for some magical looking eyes. 4 sizes of eyes with an Omega HUD for compatible eyes (CATWA, LeLutka, Logo…etc). Mesh eyes and system eyes are also included so just about everyone who wants these excellent eyes can use them.

FACE⊱ amias – NERO – Ivory @ TMDNEW
A new LeLutka applier that comes in 3 different skin tones and comes with a brow or browless option. 4 different facial hair options are also included in the HUD as well so that you can perfect your look however you want to. You can also purchase the body appliers right at the event as well so if you demo the skin right there and want to take it home you won’t have to go anywhere else before you head home to fix yourself up.

BODYBelleza – Jake

SHIRT⊱ ExalteD – Flannel – Mustard @ ULTRANEW
When it comes to long sleeved shirts and colder weather there’s nothing better than the feeling of flannel. I’ve always had a flannel shirt to wear on top of short sleeved shirts or just by themselves and I have always been comfortable. Finding this at the ULTRA event was a great moment as I was able to have one in my virtual world as well that fit the body that I am wearing now without any hassle. There are several colors at the event to choose from so there is sure to be one you’ll like. I’m only disappointed that it wasn’t released as a FATPACK too because I likely would have given my money for it; I’m so very tempted to return and get at least one more color.

COMPATIBLE With: Belleza (2 versions) and Signature (2 versions) male bodies.

JEANS::K:: Slim Fit Jeans – Used

SHOES⊱ [MODA] BLAKE OXFORDS @ Man CaveNEW
These oxfords are very versatile in the fact that they look good with both jeans as you can see for yourself up above; they also work well with slacks/dress pants. The HUD comes with 26 color options to change 5 different parts of the shoe with (that’s a lot of options and combinations you can come up with) as well as 4 different metals for the eyelets. This is definitely worth the price, an exceptional value.

COMPATIBLE With: Belleza, Signature and SLink male bodies.

Go&See * Dude * Bento Pose Pack (3) @ M.O.MNEW
As I mentioned up above, Go&See has branched out into poses; there are 5 different poses in the pack that require bento enabled hands for the pose to look the way it was intended to. To you guys out there who are into photography and blogging as I am you definitely should check these out if you have not yet because these poses should not be slept on!
