[#395] In A World Of Human Wreckage

When I’m lost and I’m found
and I can’t touch the ground
I’m plowed into the sound…

Plowed” – SpongeListen

This is the last weekend of the Indie Teepee event and I hope you’ve been able to get there and enjoy all the sights and sounds as well as shopping that the event has to offer. This is my last post covering the event and I hope that you agree with me that it is going out with a bang. The item I chose to feature here is a fun one, and considering I don’t do decor (or landscaping) items very much I thought it might be one of those times where I snuck one in. While I didn’t create everything you see in the background, that would go to the wonderful sim known as Netherwood. I just provided a little extra touch to complete my idea/theme.

Most of my overall look remains the same from the last few posts but I am featuring a new skin by Modulus which you will be able to find at the Mesh Body Addicts Fair that just recently started.

The next photo you are about to see is an overview shot of the BROKEN BOY giant doll by NOMAD. I submerged it in water as if it was a part of an old civilization from long ago that has simply been left dormant and decaying around what has come after it. I really liked this shot too much to edit it into the secondary features shot so I left it as was originally shot.

I‘d like to thank everyone from the event coordinator down to all the artists, speakers, musicians, and item creators that took part in Indie Teepee. This is truly one of the most unique events out there and I am seriously proud to have been associated with it as a blogger; I look forward to next years event. Here’s the full credits for those of you who are eagerly awaiting to know what took part in this photo shoot. Make sure when you hit these stores and events you grab demos and happy shopping! I’ll see you again soon but until then, stay stylish fellas!

EYES⊱ MESANGE – Wicked Game Eyes @ M.O.MNEW
FACE⊱ Modulus – Giles Skin – Cream @ Mesh Body Addicts FairNEW

This handsome devil is just the latest from my sponsor in Modulus. Giles comes in six tones (I am featuring Cream here). Also included is a eyebrow shaper and a body shape (which I did not use for this shoot). This is part of a new era of skins by the brand and if this is any indication, good things are in store for the M-Bare division of Modulus.

CARDIGAN⊱ /Ascend/ Hiroshi Cardigan w/Shirt – Gray

This item was a holdout from the July round of The Men’s Department that I was able to find a look to compliment it with. Even though the weather for me in the real world is a bit warm yet, it’s not something I have to worry about in-world. I like how it is paired with the shirt perfectly and has a good flow to it without looking constricted. Sizes available in the package are for Adam, Belleza, Signature, and SLink and also include a HUD to color change the t-shirt if you choose to go with another color.

SHORTS⊱ RIOT / Emery Denim Shorts @ Mesh Body Addicts FairNEW

It’s a back to back entry with another new item from one of my sponsors in RIOT. I have the privilege of reviewing these slightly rolled up shorts which have worn elements and threading that is also worn and frayed. In this FATPACK there are a ton of different options for denim and at least a dozen different choices for the threading. You can purchase single denim colors but if you like variety it is very practical to go with the FATPACK. Sizes you can find in the package include Adam, Belleza, Signature, and SLink.

DOLL⊱ NOMAD // BROKEN BOY @ Indie TeepeeNEW

NOMAD never disappoints me when they release an item that catches my eye, which is why I chose this item as part of my blogger product reviews for Indie Teepee. I really get the feel that this large doll was inspired somehow by the Fallout games and also reminds me of something personally. Many may be way too young to remember Big Boy restauarants or have ever had them in their area. It was pretty big in the midwest and outside them was a huge doll in a similar style holding a hamburger. At first I tried to find a post apocalyptic location to shoot at but I could not find any that I was able to put this item down at but I do feel that it turned out nicely as it ended up.

Le Poppycock *La Di Da* B (Make Good)

This pose set is one I had stored away from a while back from an event and when I was looking for something I thought would fit, I found it in my unused poses but I am glad that I was able to because I do enjoy Le Poppycock and their poses. Check them out if you are needing poses because there is just about something for everyone.

Wicked Game” – Chris IsaakListen

After having seen so many wonderful photos being taken at Surfers Bay, I decided to see what it was like for myself. Now I have to give you a little disclaimer before you click the link down in the credits if you want to check it out for yourself. It is a beach sim that allows you to wear beach attire or you can go in the buff if you are daring enough. There is also a fee to get into the beach area but it really nicely put together so I didn’t see much harm to pay a fee so that I could get a really good shot with the theme I was working with.

My secondary shot which you’ll see below was actually a retake because I felt like I didn’t get as good of a view of the main product I was trying to feature. I honestly feel like this shot turned out better than the primary one. Don’t get me wrong though I like how they both turned out, just the second one is a bit better after a little touching up. Of course you can form your own opinions of which you like better.

Most of the credits are the same from the last post I did so if you want to see what my thoughts were, I encourage you to check back to it to see what I had to say. There are two new items in this look from the Men Only Monthly and Indie Teepee events. If you do go to these places…grab demos before making a purchase because you’ll be happy you did. That’s all that I have this time so thank you for taking the time to look and as always, stay stylish fellas!

EYES⊱ MESANGE – Wicked Game Eyes @ M.O.MNEW

One of the main reasons I chose the theme I did for this entry were these eyes. The name alone reminds me of the song and I thought that since I like being diverse with my choices for themes and music that I would take a run with this. There are 15 different color eyes that you can purchase (either singly or as a FATPACK). Included are mesh eyes and a HUD to change the size of the pupil as well as a HUD for Omega enabled eyes for those of you that have them. As with all the products in the MESANGE line, they are vivid and look really well when photographed.

TRUNKS⊱ RIOT / Moby Swim Shorts @ Indie TeepeeNEW

This awesome bit of swimwear comes as a review copy from my sponsor, the RIOT brand which is a part of the Indie Teepee event (which I am also grateful to have as a sponsor). One of the reasons I love this brand is the amount of choices available to you as well as easy to use HUDs. You have a choice of buying single colors but there are just so many great combinations that at a reduced price, getting them all seems like a great idea. There are three parts to them that can be color changed in the FATPACK, but if you get a single color only the trim and the side panels can be colored via HUD. The detail on the side panels give the effect of scales like on a fish which is very cool. Sizes included for this product are Belleza, Signature, SLink, and TMP respectively. If you haven’t been to Indie Teepee it would be a great opportunity to before they close up for the year on the 6th of August.

[#391] Wake Up The Zombie

You’re on the inside
And I know you’re fighting
On the outside

This is not your funeral…

Zombie” – We As Human (feat. John Cooper)Listen

With the San Diego Comic-Con just wrapping up this past weekend, I thought I would get a little geek out going by putting together this themed shoot that I think turned out extremely well. With the undead being a huge thing in pop culture these days I couldn’t resist as it has been a while since I did anything like it. So here you go folks, I’m going to let you take a look at the visuals and then after that you’ll get a break down of the things that are recent or new at current shopping events! Until next time as always, stay stylish fellas!

HAIRVoltHAIR – LOGAN Hair

This item is a remnant of this year’s Hair Fair. I hadn’t been able to feature it due to time constraints but it was one that I was really excited about. It’s kind of a wild style with shaved sides and back which the hairbase does come included with the package and I recommend using it unless you already have something you prefer better. There are four different color packs to choose from or you can get them all together for discounted price. I encourage you to go check out this newer store and see what they have, I know I will be!

HEADCATWA – Shaheen (Bento)
EYES⊱ MESANGE – Borealis Eyes ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ GENRE

For the latest installment of the themed event, GENRE, I received a review copy of MESANGE’s latest product: “Borealis Eyes” Said to be of a sea faring theme I thought it made sense to try to bring tranquility to the main character of my visual as he’s dealing with a world that has turned upside down. For the event, there are three different packs of five colors which are special priced for the event only. The contents of the box provide you with mesh eyes and HUDs for the mesh and also Omega enabled products. All of the colors are very vibrant and snazzy and could easily be used for regular every day or for role-playing purposes.

SHIRT⊱ OUTLIER.// METAL FANBASE SHIRT ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ M.O.M

My first featured item from the recently re-opened Men Only Monthly event. This shirt reminds me of a concert shirt which is something you don’t see much of these days but is starting to make a comeback. There are several colors available but I chose to go with the white one. This shirt comes with sizes for Belleza, Signature, SLink, and TMP which most people have one of if not several of these bodies so it should work rather well.

JEANS⊱ = REBELLION = “CRUDE” JEANS

I came across these jeans as a special being advertised and I thought that I would just give it a shot and I’m not sorry I did. These jeans have a great fit and now that I’ve started wearing the Belleza body more it’s great when a store makes items for it. It comes with a HUD to change the denim color and also the belt and even if it is no longer promo priced by the time you find this entry I encourage you to check them out anyway. For those of you who do not own the Belleza body, it also comes with sizes for ADAM, Aesthetic, Signature, SLink, Standard Sizes, and TMP. These jeans are a great addition to your wardrobe.

SHOES[Deadwool] Chase Sneakers

BACKDROP[Bad Unicorn] ‘The Docks’ Backdrop

This item was first introduced at a previous round of TMD along with four other backdrops that you could either purchase alone or all together. I naturally liked all of them so I got the full package at a cheaper price. When I was putting together thoughts for what I wanted to do with the theme for this entry, this backdrop stood right up out of the crowd and the rest as they say is history. You can go check out all of the backdrops in the set and many others that are equally high in quality at the main location. You won’t regret it, I promise you.


IE – Batter Up V2 (3m) ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Designer Showcase

The focal point of this scene, the pose. There are two versions of the “Batter Up” set and the first version caters to the gals while the second caters to us fellas. Inspired by a few comic related references this set includes regular and mirrored poses along with a bat prop. One small issue I have with this set and it isn’t a very big one as I do love it but I wish there would have been bat props provided for the mirrors. It took a bit of extra work to make the bat look presentable in the mirrored format. This set just might make Lucille a bit jealous or cause you to want to hang out with Mr. J.

It’s All About The Pentiums” – “WeirdAl YankovicListen

I decided that I’d dip into the nerd pool for this post and channel some of the inner me that was lurking around. I found some really cool items to put this look together, with some of them new and some of them just items I had laying around. This turned out to be a really fun and inspired shoot from one of the most hilarious parody musicians of all time, “Weird” Al Yankovic. I’m not going to be like one of thos Chat Room Yakker’s he talks about so I’m going to get right to the breakdown of what you see here.


HAIRlock&tuft – ruined

This item first showed up at a previous round of ROMP. While it ended up getting lost in my closet for a moment, this nice neck lenght hair was just the thing to start creating my hunky nerd look. The box comes with two different versions (the one you see here and one with a blindfold with written words you can choose via a HUD). There are also three color packs but can also be bought as a FATPACK if you can’t pick just one and save yourself some money.

HEADCATWA – Shaheen (Bento) ♯ ☆NEW

EYES⊱ Go&See * Land * ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ M.O.M

The second of three eye releases from Go&See that you can check out at Men Only Monthly. This 10 eye color set is mostly earth tones (shades of brown) but with a little bit of blue and purple thrown in as well. These eyes are for Catwa eyes only so for those of you that aren’t using those and like these eyes you may want to look into the Catwa eyes.

FACE⊱ ::LV:. Nathan – Pearl/02 ♯ Marketplace

Normally I’m not fond of buying skins from the Marketplace nor am I comfortable with it but I’m slightly familiar with Lee Valentine’s work and saw and adverstisement for this skin that sent me to look at the demo for it and when I found out it was compatible with Stray Dog body appliers it was all but a done deal. I really just like how this looks with the Shaheen head and the shape that I also found on Marketplace which I’ll get to in a moment or so.

BEARD⊱ Beausame // Beard V23 ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ TMD

As I was browsing through The Men’s Department I came across the set of beards by Beausame and thought that maybe it would fit my look if not just for this post but for more day to day purposes. I had also considered using this beard for a John Wick inspired photo session which may still happen but we’ll have to see how things flow creatively.

BODYBelleza – Jake

SHAPE⊱ HF – Shape Edward ♯ Marketplace

From the mind of fellow blogger, Jos Crumb, this shape was somewhat of a test for me because I’m really picky about things like this and with there not being an available demo to see what it might look like with different skins it was something of a gamble but I feel it paid off. I like the facial features as well as the body part of it as well as I’m not super tall nor am I built like a tank. I think that with Mr. Crumb being a blogger he understand things a bit better so kudos to him. Check out the link to this item up above but be warned there are limited quantities and also visit his MP store for other excellent shapes.

SHIRT+TIE⊱ -Belleza- Nathan Shirt ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ M.O.M

After the celebrated release of the Jake body, Tricky Boucher and the Belleza brand are at it again. The “Nathan” shirt (that comes with options for tucked and untucked as well as a tie in three colors) is just the thing for the nerd in us all or just someone who wants a cool dress shirt. I couldn’t decide which of the colors to choose so naturally I bought the FATPACK because it was a great deal and now I have options for when I need something like this for a social setting or even another photo session.

JEANS[Deadwool] Broberry Jeans – Revenge EXTRA ♯ ☆NEW

The collaboration between [Deadwool] and Blueberry that has the world in an uproar. Two different versions made for males and females, these jeans really do kick butt. There’s a regular leg and also rolled up leg version for those who may want to wear hi-tops with their jeans without the fear of having them clip through (and we all know that’s a bit annoying). With sizes for Belleza, Signature, SLink, TMP and Standard Fitmesh it covers just about all of the bases for mesh bodies and takes the excuse of getting them off the table. Also if you feel adventurous and dare to buy the FATPACK, you get an extra pair of jeans not sold seperately. I chose the WASH version there is also a standard denim version which is almost tempting enough to go back for…maybe I will!

SHOES[Deadwool] Chase Sneakers

An item I’ve previously covered on the blog but thought it would be great to pair them with the Jeans to stay within the same brand and also because they look pretty cool together. That’s about all that I have to say about these shoes other than go check them out!

GLASSESBALACLAVA – Kip Glasses (Black)

One of my old standby pair of specks, they come with several options (one with the tape and one without) and have gotten plenty of use over time and felt like a great addition to my nerd look.

OFFICE[Toiz] Gray Office Skybox

Once a Gacha machine featured at Shiny Shabby by the now re-branded CMYK store, this office skybox was the perfect setup for what I wanted to do and it was already just sitting in my cluttered mess waiting to be used. Sometimes gacha items end up going into the abyss to die but it was great being able to pluck it out and give it life in this photograph.

DECOR⊱ [Bad Unicorn] Shoreditch Startup ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ TMD

Seeing this set at The Men’s Department really made my day. I thought it was super detailed and was the cherry on top of the sundae with the setting and theme I was going for. What’s cool about this set (which you can buy in pieces but it’s way too awesome to not just buy the full set) is that you can change the clock on the computer. The chair which you can see a little bit in the photo has poses in it which I’m sure at some point I will because it’s so well made.


IE – Mellow V1 (5) ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Square 1

Several posts ago I featured a pose from the V2 set of the Mellow poses from Image Essentials. Both sets have varying sit poses that can be used in a multitude of ways (such as on furniture that does not have poses). You can take a look at the pose sets at the Square 1 Event which the transporation to is located just above this paragraph.

I hope you’ve enjoyed viewing this entry as I did creating it and maybe it will inspire you in some way. Take a trip to the locations of the stores and events featured here and have a great shopping experience. Until the next time, stay stylish fellas!

Call And Answer” – The Barenaked LadiesListen

After taking a look into the nice things from my excursions to the Hair Fair and to The Men’s Dept., I have another great look for you that also has items from Men Only Monthly and a preview of what is coming from the Souled Out Event that starts on the 10th of July and just so I don’t get caught up in getting too wordy I’m going to jump right into it with my thoughts on what made this blog entry complete.

HAIR⊱ { Speakeasy } Seb Hair ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Hair Fair ’17

Going with a hair that is a little ear length and combed off to one side with shaved undersides is one of the current trends in male hair. The one thing I can say is that everyone has their own vision for the style and Speakeasy is certainly no different. There are 5 different color HUDs you can purchase or you can get all of them in the available FATPACK. It does come with it’s own omega compatible hairbase unless you have one that you like and is just as suitable.

HEADCATWA – Shaheen (Bento) ♯ ☆NEW

EYES⊱ AG. Enchanted Eyes ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Souled Out

Coming Soon to the Souled Out Event is new eyes from Avi-Glam. The “Enchanted Eyes” are being sold in 3 different packs of 6 eye colors or you can choose to buy the full set as a FATPACK. Included in the package are the standard mesh eyes with a HUD as well as HUDs for Catwa, LeLutka, and also Omega appliers. These eyes are very vivid and life like and if you are a fan of eyes as I am you’ll want to have at least some of these in your collection. They will be available for purchase on July 10th, I’ve included transportation for you to get there when the event opens.

FACE⊱ Clef de Peau: Tony T2 ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ TMD

“Tony” is the latest skin from Clef de Peau that you can find in the July round of TMD. There is a lot of customization with this skin as provided in the Catwa applier. You can have freckles as an option as well as facial stubble. There is also the choice of using the included brows or forgoing them and using one you might prefer more. Another nice feature is that there are body shapes for each of the current bento Catwa heads; I find that wearing it in conjuction with the Shaheen head that my avatar looks a little like Rami Malik, the actor who is known for his roles in the Night At The Museum movies and also the television show, Mr. Robot.

BODYBelleza – Jake

JERSEY⊱ OUTLIER.// Revenge Baseball Jersey – Sky Blue ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ M.O.M

Now I will admit that I’m a huge baseball fan so when I saw this item at Men Only Monthly I really thought long and hard about it because in little under a week the MLB All-Star game will be played in Miami. While this jersey is reminiscent of the old Florida team’s logo that moved to Miami (and not my favorite team or least favorite team by any means). I figured I’d give a little nod to one of my favorite sports by throwing this on and featuring it in a photo.

SHORTS⊱ {COLD-ASH} CHINO Shorts ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ TMD

What’s more casual than a baseball jersey when hanging out? Wearing chino shorts with it to maximize the comfort while still looking good at the same time. {COLD-ASH} has new CHINO Shorts at the current round of The Men’s Department and there are many great options to choose from. There are two different sets (Plain and Colors) with HUDs to change the color of the shorts as well as the belt. There is also the ability to change the belt to a striped version if that is more desireable. The two color sets are sold together as a FATPACK if you are having a hard time deciding between which on you like better and want it all. Sizes included for this product are Belleza, Signature, and TMP. Sadly there is not a size for SLink Physique users or Standard sizing.

SHOES⊱ [ VERSOV ] NICEOV BLACKWHITEGUM ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ TMD

[ VERSOV ] is back with another new style of sneaker at The Men’s Department. The NICEOV sneakers are just the thing to complete a look such as the one that I’ve put together. The shoe comes in 15 different style/color combinations and all of them can be purchased together in a FATPACK. What is great about this is there are sizes for just about all the major mesh bodies for the fellas and the gals so if you’re looking for a new pair of sneakers this would be a good place to start.

[#384] Where No One Knows My Name

I think I’ll go to Boston
I think I’ll start a new life
I think I’ll start it over where no one knows my name

Boston” – AugustanaListen

I welcome everyone back to another look from yours truly, where this time I have goodies from events such as UBER, Designer Circle, Cosmopolitan, Man Cave and also Men Only Monthly. Just like usual you’ll find the full credits below where you will be given transportation to the events and stores themselves. I’m going to try something a bit new with this entry and for the new items that are being featured I’ll write a little bit about each of them. Let me get into what went on in this one so I can get you out there to enjoy a shopping experience.

HAIRBURLEY – Gabriel

Burley is a well known name in the hair game in the world of Second Life, most people reading this will know that but just in case you haven’t found this fine example of stylish tresses then I am glad that I am able to give you a taste. The recently released “Gabriel” hair is a nice mid length side combed hair but what makes this just a bit more special is that it comes with a styler HUD and gives you the option to choose if you want the full hair or a version where the side is shaved which is something of a major hair trend that I’m noticing. For this item I went with the variety pack as there were more than I would possibly use with the full FATPACK, but there’s still a generous amount of colors included. You are also getting an included Hairbase for Legacy users, and also applier HUDs for Omega, Signature, and TMP respectively.

HEADCATWA – Daniel (Bento)

EYES⊱ AG. Passion Eyes ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Cosmopolitan (Until 07/02)

We are in the final days of the current round of Cosmopolitan in which Avi-Glam is participating with their release of the “Passion Eyes”. There are 6 different colors to choose from all with little flecks in them to make them even more unique. Provided in this package are mesh eyes as well as HUDs for Catwa, LeLutka, and Omega applier enabled eye products.

FACE⊱ Clef de Peau: Ivo T2 ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ M.O.M

MOUSTACHE⊱ Kauna – Bento Moustache: English [v1.2] ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Man Cave
BEARD⊱ Kauna – Bento Beard: Shape A [v1.2] ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Man Cave

Kauna, a brand known for their clothing such as their suits and more recently jeans/boots combination have stepped into new territory with their release of new bento facial hair, a beard and a moustache. The “English” Moustuache is a very old style handlebar that works really nicely with the “Shape A” beard. Both of these come with a HUD with 9 pre-selectable hair colors but also has a tintable feature if your style choice is not one of the ones included. For a first effort, I think Kauna nailed this and is a product that I’ll certainly feature again in the future. It must also be noted that this beard is for users or Catwa branded heads. If you have something other than Daniel and Stanley it is advised to try the demo first. You can find both of these at the inaugural round of Man Cave, and from one fella to another, I definitely recommend it to any beard lover.

BODY[SIGNATURE] Gianni – Body – v3.5

SHIRT⊱ AITUI – Mountaineer – Ash ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ UBER
WRAP⊱ AITUI – Mountaineer – Waist Wrap ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ UBER

I’m really excited about the latest release by Aitui that is currently available at UBER, which just started a fresh round several days ago. The “Mountaineer” shirt is best described as a graphic tee with the added benefit of suspenders thrown in. There are 8 colors to choose from and fit Signature, SLink, and TMP mesh bodies. I’m wearing the “Ash” version which is a mid to dark gray color. I partnered it up with the companion item that can aslo be found at the same event. The “Mountaineer Waist Wrap” is a cool flannel shirt that goes around the waist and works for that potential evening chill one might experience hanging out at the beach. The waist wrap has HUD with 8 different choices and fits the same three body formats the shirt does. I really knew I had to have these the moment I saw them and I certainly hope you get that same feeling.

SHORTS⊱ RIOT / Simon Shorts ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ M.O.M

As one of my sponsors, I was honored to receive the latest clothing release from RIOT that is out now at Men Only Monthly. The “Simon” shorts are a great addition to the look that I’ve put together. The FATPACK provides you with 28 different colors of fabric as well as that same option with a seersucker print. The belt is customizable as well with the same color choices and 9 metal buckle choices. I decided to coordinate with the flannel color of the waist wrap and went with the teal seersucker print. The shorts are just the right length just above the kneecap as I don’t like them all that short personally. The HUD is easy to use and no matter what color you choice you’ll definitely be getting a quality product. Head over to Men Only Monthly now and give them a shot!

SHOES⊱ The Owl. – Must Have Chucks (Batman) ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Shiny Shabby

I found myself browsing around Shiny Shabby when it opened and came across some high tops by a brand I was not familiar with. At the event, The Own has the “Must Have Chucks” in a variety of colors and also a few themed ones based of television shows and also characters. The ones I am wearing have a really cool image of the Caped Crusader and his nemesis on one side and on the other an image of The Clown Prince of Crime. I’m a sneaker addict so it didn’t take a lot of convincing for me to snag up the FATPACK; the included sizes are (Maitreya and SLink for Females) and (Signature, SLink, and TMP for Males). If you want a good looking high top check out The Owl at Shiny Shabby.

BACKDROP⊱ [Bad Unicorn] Barbers Backdrop ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Limit8 (Sold Out)

Limit8 is a great event that gives shoppers the chance to own one of a kind items that even before the event ends could be sold completely out of stock. One of those items that is being featured here is the “Barbers Backdrop” from Bad Unicorn Clothing. These scene depicts the front of a closed barber shop and comes with a secured door and even has a barbers pole to give it that true authentic shop look. Bad Unicorn did really well with this and just like their other backdrops made it fun to pose in front of. The neon signs even cast off a reddish glow to them; I’m glad to say that I have this genuine one of a kind item.

IE – GothNIC ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Designer Circle

Designer Circle is not often an event that I’m able to find items but I just happened to find one of the latest pose sets by Image Essentials, in which I am able to review copies of. The GothNIC pose set was designed for the female in mind but I was able to find a way to take one of the poses from the set and use it to help create my scene. I have to say I really enjoy being able to take poses that aren’t specifically for guys and put a spin on them and make them work. For those ladies who might be reading this, these really are great poses to use for such occasions as creating profile pictures. Why not head to Designer Circle and take a look for yourself you may be surprised how much you like them.

I appreciate anyone who took the time to check this out and I also hope that you’re able to find uses for these items as well or are even able to find other items from the events and stores that have been featured here in this entry. I am going to call this a wrap but remember as always to stay stylish fellas!

After taking a small breather from shopping, I managed to come up with scene that features items from the Man Cave Event as well as Men Only Monthly. I found everything I needed at those two places to come up with an idea to set to the song “Seein’ Red” by Unwritten Law.

I also have an item from this past weeks Fifty Linden Friday, the “Renegade” hair from Lock & Tuft. It seems lately there is a trend of sweeping mid-length hair hanging off to one side of the head or another and Lock & Tuft have managed to capitalize on it. Of course with it being a bargain it caught my attention but I think even at a regular price it’s worth giving some attention to.

The “Ocean Eyes” by GO&SEE are something to behold. The variations of blue and green hues in the 10 colors offered really do depict the differnt types of water you might find in a large body such as an ocean. For those of you with Catwa eyes this truly is a must. Gazing into these could be very dangerous if not mesmerizing. You can find these right now at Men Only Monthly until the 15th of July.

Gabriel is offering an outfit that consists of a jacket and slacks at ManCave. The “Denim Zip” Jacket is an open basic styled jacket that fits nicely but I find that what would make it better is an added shirt with a texture HUD to give a little more variety. While it’s fun to walk around without a shirt like you don’t have a care in the world, it limits the amount of places you might want to wear it to. While I am wearing this is Light Gray, you also have 3 other color options to choose from.

Coordinating with the jacket are the “Cotton Pants” which are your standard but comfortable casual slacks. Great for going out for a night on the town or getting together with colleagues. There are three colors to choose from (Black, Sand, and White). Both items from Gabriel come with sizes for Belleza, Signature, SLink, and TMP mesh bodies and can be purchased in FATPACKS as well for those that want to mix and match their styles.

Completing my casual look are the “Hayan Slip On” shoes from [Z O O M]. These laceless loafer type shoes are a great addition to your wardrobe. They are stylish and come with a HUD that allows you to color change the different parts of the shoe for that extra customization that if you are like me, you are going to love. I’m wearing the Signature version but also included are a SLink version as well as Unrigged for those of you with different mesh body choices.

One of my fave items I picked up at Man Cave is the “Bathroom Pub Outside” backdrop by 220mL. It is a product by a brand that I’ve seen nothing but quality out of and I’ve used others and have nothing but good things to say. The textures and build give you that feeling as if you are actually standing outside the bathroom at a pub and in the case of this scene, waiting to catch someone in the act of doing something dubious. Props like this have somewhat changed my mind on using them compared to visiting a sim with pre-built settings. I’m becoming a photographer that is split 50/50 on this topic because of well made items like this.

I encourage you to visit these events and the stores featured and grab demos and find what suits you best. Enjoy the full style credits below and happy shopping. Until next time as always, stay stylish fellas!
