[#416] Not Meant For Me

The jury is coming
coming to tear me apart
all this bitching and moaning
Come on, it’s on!

Not Meant For Me” – Jonathan DavisListen

This my first Halloween inspired scene for 2017 and I feel like I’m starting off strong. This is intended to be a two part post in which the second will come within the next week as a collaboration with some fellow blogger friends of mine. I’m not going to give away all the details because I want to garner some interest for readers to come back to take a look.

Ever since I was younger I had a fascination with vampires and their myths. From television shows such as Dark Shadows and Moonlight to films like Salem’s Lot, The Lost Boys, and 30 Days Of Night as well as classic novels by Bram Stoker and Anne Rice featuring titillating characters of the undead variety. I have always been drawn to the stories of their struggle and romanticism behind them. A lot of people love these pop culture icons that have withstood the test of time itself.

This particular photo session was inspired by “The Queen of The Damned” film starring Stuart Townsend and the late Aaliyah. I was fortunate enough that the LeLutka Andrea bento head comes with a pair of fangs to help me complete my look.

The scene was shot on location at a friend’s Haunted House which will be opening soon but is not yet completed which is why at this time I won’t be providing a taxi as it is not yet open to the public. When it does become available I will give you an update in a future entry.

Brands contributing review copies for this post include Go&See with the “Robin” shape and “Christian” skin (which I have shown in previous posts) as well as MESANGE with their “Arden Eyes” that I’ve also displayed in previous entries.

This particular post has a heavy presence from the Hipster Men’s Event and also The Men’s Department. Upcoming coverage is going to include the new round of Men Only Monthly as well as Shiny Shabby and The Epiphany. I intend to visit some others as well that I hope to utilize products from.

I hope you enjoyed joining me in this adventure and I will be back again soon with another installment. Below are the styling credits with transportation to the stores and events all products can be found at.

Onto the next conversation…

SHAPE⊱ Go&See * Robin * Lelutka Bento @ M.O.MNEW

This is the first shape created for the LeLutka Andrea head by Go&See. While I am wearing their “Christian” skin, I’ve found that several other Go&See skins work just as well with it and I am sure with other experimenting other brands could work as well. It also comes with a brow shaper and style card for those who want to nab the look out of the box.

SHIRT⊱ etham – Saul Henley @ TMDNEW

For casual clothing lovers, etham is one of those who always knows what products to create for long term wear. As a personal preference, I like long sleeved shirts that do not have collars and this Henley shirt is just the thing. I picked up the Fatpack because the price of it alone is well worth making use of the dozen colors you can change via the included HUD. You can also change the button colors as well for extra functionality.

Compatible with: Belleza, NX-Nardcotix, Signature, SLink, Standard, and TMP male mesh bodies.

<K&S> Fearless. Bento Poses 3 (2) @ Hipster Men’s EventNEW

For the second straight month, K&S has released another “Fearless” 3 pose set at Hipster Men’s Event. I’m not sure how long it will continue but I’ve been enjoying these so I do hope that they continue to so I can continue to feature them in my scenes.

[#415] This Is My Fight Song

And I don’t really if nobody else believes
‘Cause I’ve still got a lot of life left in me

Fight Song” – Rachel PlattenListen

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and just even doing some basic research you find out some staggering statistics. As of yet there is no cure for the different types that ail women all over the world every day. Disease never takes a day off that is why there are many organizations working endlessly to help find a way to prevent this from taking yet another life.

Daughters, Sisters, Mothers, Grandmothers and friends could be at risk which it is why it is so important to spread the word. If you know someone who hasn’t had a screening in a while to check with their physician. Also if anyone reading this has ever found anything suspicious do not wait to see someone because any chance of detecting early could be difference between life and death.

Another fact that might surprise you is that women are not the only ones susceptible to having breast cancer. Yes, males themselves have a possibility of developing a type of the disease in their cells as well. It’s not as common and less talked about but it is still possible. I applaud the efforts of organizations such as Susan G. Komen and global sports organizations such as the National Football League and World Wrestling Entertainment for taking part in helping with education and awareness in the fight.

With each post I write a little bit about what blog sponsors (which I personally am not a fan of that term) are being featured and it is something I started doing recently and will continue to do because they’ve worked hard to create the products that I’ve been given to review and let you all know about.

In fact this post wouldn’t have come to light (or had less of a chance of me doing it) without the pose and prop that I’ve been given to review by Image Essentials. Their “Survivor” pose consists of 5 different poses with pink ribbon prop. Each one has a mirror pose as well so you can pick which side you prefer to photograph. It is currently at the TWE12VE event which you can find the transportation to down in the full credits.

Also being reviewed are a set of eyes from MESANGE from the Hipster Men’s Event (an event that I am very fond of) which recently started this past week. One of the things I like about having a designer benefactor that creates eyes is that you can change your eye color to something different and not have the same eyes twice unless you wanted to.

This particular adventure is one that is more on the personal side, if you’ve had someone in your family that has been diagnosed and have fought cancer head on win or lose then you know what it is like.

My intentions in creating this is to help encourage everyone to learn more and also to participate anyway you possibly can no matter how little it is. Also it is my hope that one day in my lifetime I will hear that a cure has been found not just for breast cancer but for as many or all types out there in the world.

Thank you for taking a look today and I am going to leave you with the credits and one last thing. The name of this site is These Conversations Kill and many you might have in your lifetime may in fact hurt deeply but I do hope that this particular entry will indeed help save a life.

Onto the next conversation…

HAIR[Deadwool] Slicked Back Hair
HEADLeLutka – Andrea v 3.1
EYES⊱ MESANGE – Arden Eyes @ Hipster Men’s EventNEW

This collection contains 15 colors with a stunning design which is changeable via HUD. It also includes mesh eyeballs for anyone who does not use provided mesh head eyes or they do not come with them. There are also 4 sizes of pupil to be chosen for your best look.

Compatible with Omega (Catwa, LeLutka, etc…)

FACEStray Dog – Cody 02
BODYBelleza – Jake

JEANS⊱ BlankLine – StandardJeans @ TMDNEW

Now that BlankLine has been releasing items that work with Belleza bodies I’ve been really enjoying the releases they have had at TMD. Though I have to warn anyone who might be interested in this jeans, they are lower in the back allowing for a little bit of a plumber’s view if you catch my drift. I certainly will wear a shirt when wearing them out in public because nobody wants to see my derriere. 4 different denims to choose from and belt also color changes via HUD as well.

Compatible with: Belleza, Signature, and TMP mesh bodies.

SHOES⊱ SEMLLER – SLIP ON @ TMDNEW


IE – Survivor (b) (1) @ TWE12VE ♯ NEW

I think I said all that I could have said about this product in the earlier part of this entry but it certainly bares repeating. There are 5 different poses (each with mirrors) that have a pink ribbon prop. Keep in mind that yes this pose set is for ladies but I found a way to make it work for me with the pose that I used. Those of you reading and know of anyone interested in this pose grab the taxi and take them along to give it a closer look.

[#379] I’m Drowning In Myself

I think I need help
‘Cause I’m drowning in myself
It’s sinking in, I can’t pretend
That I ain’t been through hell…

Help” – Papa RoachListen

Another weekend approaches and there’s plenty of goodies to cover. For those of you who are returning readers, welcome back! For those of you who are just finding this little space on the web for the first time then I kindly greet you and hope that you enjoy the sights of These Conversations Kill.

This entry is predominantly about The Men’s Department, which opened its doors to a new round on the 5th of June. I managed to find a lot of goodies to share with you, one of which is a review copy. There are so many good things to find there this month that it could take several posts to cover them all and that’s even piling a bunch of them up in this current look I’m about to discuss. Since there is so much to talk about, let me get right into it.

Modulus once again has another new hairstyle reflective of one of the most notable roman emperors in history. Last time I covered the “Caesar” hair and now just released is the “Julius” hair. While the styles bare a similar resemblance to one another, the “Julius” has longer hair in front. There are five color packs that you can choose from or the option to buy all of them at once for more variety and value. As with their previous release, this is definitely a great style for summer that I think you gentleman would really like.

As a member of the {Cold-Ash} blogger team, I was honored with a copy of the “JONAS” Muscle Tee. I have nothing but good things to say about this product as it fits perfectly with the pants I am about to talk about in a few moments. There are two different sets of color packs you can choose from: Classic and Light, (Classic has 8 different colors, Light has 6). There are sizes that will fit just about every male mesh body out there including the new Belleza “Jake”. If your someone who likes to be out in the warm weather and dislikes having any kind of sleeves, this is definitely an item for you. Look on the bright side, you’re able to show off those muscles when you are out and about for people to take notice.

Clef de Peau, they have become a very versatile brand as they’ve branched out from just being male and female skin designers. They also have launched clothing lines for both the gals and fellas as well and are very appealing whenever you find them at an event such as TMD. They have just released a set of clothes to which I only selected the pants as I already had my top lined up. When I came across the “Bootcut” Pants, it was truly hard to pick a color because there were so many good ones to choose from but in the end I went with Navy as most times I play it safe and choose monotone colors like black or white. These pants are perfect for those of you who like to wear boots of any type, well maybe save for cowboy boots. They certainly go great with high tops such as the ones I am wearing in this look that I’ll be talking about shortly. Clothing like this makes me look forward to the next Clef de Peau release.

The moment I saw the advertisement for the “FEARLESS STOMPERS” from [VALE KOER] I knew that I had complete my look. They were not available right away on opening day but I already had the majority of my outfit complete and all I needed was some footwear and these were just what I needed. With it being [VALE KOER] I couldn’t resist buying the Fatpack as the unlimited amount of customization that can be achieved by doing so made it an easy sell. What also sold me about these shoes is that they are a combination of a Chuck Taylor and a modern style boot. Inside the product package there are sizes for both male and female mesh bodies and also an unrigged version for those who have yet to make the plunge to mesh (by now most people have) or those that don’t have the right body to make fitting work for them.

Now that I’ve covered everything in this look that is at TMD, I’m going to move on to the Souled Out event in which I am wearing the “Lucent Eyes” by Avi-Glam. This item is also a part of blogger pack which I was given the full set, which consists of 25 different iris tones. These eyes are very well made and would be ones that I could easily wear for every day non-blogging. Besides the included mesh eyes, there are also HUDs for Catwa, LeLutka, and Omega compatible eyes. Also you have the option between Small, Medium, and Large sized pupils. If you’ve been waiting for the right time to shop for a new set of eyes, then this would be the time and product to get.

Knot & Co. is putting on the Only Summer Project in which BodyLanguage SLC has been kind enough to offer the “Thumbs Up A” Bento pose pack. This pack consists of 6 poses with included mirrors. So for those of you who want to take a picture showing how much you like something, this pose pack definitely deserves a thumbs up!

I’d also like to quick give a shout out to the Lockwood sim where these photos were taken. It’s a very well put together pose-apocalyptic sim that is definitely worth exploring even if you are not a photographer. I’ve included transportation to get there if you want to take a look at it, it’s certainly worth it in my opinion.

That should do it for another entry and I encourage you to follow the transportation to the stores and events available below in the full credits and be sure to grab demos first to ensure these products are right for you. It’s been an honor bringing you this look and these photos and until next time, stay stylish fellas!
