[#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…)

FACEStray Dog – Cody T2

BEARD*Drot* Scruffy Beard

BODYBelleza – Jake

PANTSYACK – LAZARO

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.

[#425] Ho Hey!

I don’t think you’re right for him
Look at what have might have been
If you took a bus to China Town
I’d be standing on Canal and Bowery
She’d be standing next to me.

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!

[#422] This Time Of Year

Well, there’s a football in the air
Across a leaf blown field
Yeah, and there’s your first car on the road
And the girl you’d steal

– ♫This Time Of Year♫ – Better Than Ezra

 

The fall bug has hit the pages of These Conversations Kill for another year. This being the first time that I’ve done a seasonal scene in 2017 but I wanted to make sure I got this in before any other weather started to take over. I’d had this idea formulated in my head since last year but the time just rolled by me and it became too late in my mind to try and put it together.

After waiting a year I finally was able to get it off of my list of ideas and into virtual reality photography. The honest truth is I think it turned out better than I expected because not every bit of the look I chose for this was around at that time. Much of these items being recent releases as of the last month or two. Some of them even just having come out.

As the Thanksgiving Holiday approaches many families will get together and go out into their yards or a nearby park and play a little catch or touch football. I thought I would try capturing that feeling with the pose set that I am using. I think all of the items I pulled together to create this made the feeling a little magical as I was taking the photos and listening to the song that inspired me to do the session in the first place.

Once again I was on location and revisited a place where I’d done photos at before but it was a while ago and I do not recall it having a fall theme to it. The Mill is a very photogenic spot and a great place to explore even if you are not a photographer. It’s a very peaceful place and right now it is a very fall-centric spot for those of you who enjoy beautiful colors of autumn.

MESANGE has given me the privilege of featuring the “Solunis Eyes” for this entry as they are a part of the list of designer’s that feel I am worthy enough to review their products. These eyes are certainly very colorful and I’ll give more of my thoughts on them in the style credits below.

The eyes are a part of the Hipster Men’s Event which I’ve also had the pleasure of taking a stroll through the current November round. Lots of great poses, clothing, and accessories to be had, one of which is the FABIA “Rich” Hair/Beanie combination. With the weather becoming more chilly, wearing a hat like this would certainly keep a person comfortable.

I hope you’ve found something you’re interested in checking out for yourself while browsing this post. There’s plenty of shopping to be done and a lot of great events currently running and I will be looking to give you coverage on them as well in upcoming installments of this blog. Thank you for sharing in this adventure with me it’s been a lot of fun. Stay true to yourself and I look forward to the next adventure.

Onto the next conversation…

HAIR⊱ -FABIA- @ Hipster Men’s EventNEW
I’m sure you’re likely wondering why I would list this item as hair when in the photos you clearly see that it is just a beanie. Well my friends this is more than just a beanie, there are three versions of this beanie (the one you see in these photos and two others with different hair lengths). I may actually wear this again to show you one of the other versions. I purchased the FATPACK which for the amount of colors you get is worth the price tag if you are someone like me who doesn’t always stay with the same hair color all the time. There are 5 different color packs if you decide not to get them all and they all come with the 3 styles of beanie and a HUD to change the color of the beanie.

HEADLeLutka – Andrea v 3.1

EYES⊱ MESANGE – Solunis Eyes @ Hipster Men’s Event ♯ NEW
As I mentioned above, I have been given the opportunity to review this item which was recently released at Hipster Men’s Event. There are 15 different eyes to choose from and can be purchased together in a FATPACK complete with a HUD; there are also regular mesh eyeballs in the package. These eyes are compatible with any Omega enabled eyes (Catwa, LeLutka etc…)

FACEStray Dog – Cody T2
BEARDBeusame // Beard V50
BODYBelleza – Jake

SHIRTetham – Andrew Tee w/ Sweater
Previously released at an event, this shirt (well honestly I’d call it more of a shirt with a sweatshirt underneath) has a lot of different color options. I purchased the FATPACK which comes with a HUD that allows you to color both of the shirt and the sweatshirt. This is definitely perfect for those people who aren’t quite ready to bring the winter coats out of the closet.

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

PANTSYACK – Lazaro

SHOESFLI. – Suede Black Gum Canvas
I previously have worn these shoes before in other blogs but I wanted to state that they have been updated to fit the Belleza male body. They are really awesome low-top sneakers and honestly one of my favorite kinds to be released in the past year as they resemble some that I own in the real world.

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

Photo taken @ The Mill

{NanTra} Touchdown
This pose set comes with 6 different action poses depicting the game of American football. While they are really meant to be used in a setting with where there is a real field and uniformed players, I managed to make them work for the idea that I envisioned when putting this scene together. I think they can definitely also be used for other types of football photos as well.

Excellently made but to give a brief warning, they are not Bento enabled as they were created before it was released.

[#421] And I Am Stronger Now

You want to tear me down
You want to hold me down
You can’t control me now
You cannot take me out
You cannot save me now
Because I’m stronger now

Stronger♫ – Trust Company

 

As you may have noticed, I did a mini makeover to the layout of the site and will be continuing to do maintenance on it a little bit until I’ve reached my own personal satisfactory level. I find that change can be a good thing after a while if you feel like something doesn’t look right to you anymore or feel like it could use a “new coat of paint” as it were. There were some things I felt that were a necessity personally for me and for the site, which you’ll easily notice that the header remains unchanged. It may get tweaked a little as well but I’m not as much into a hurry to delve into that.

As the season is starting to change and in my part of the world the daylight doesn’t last as long as it did even a few weeks ago, along with the leaves starting to turn color and falling from the trees..I feel a bit hesitant to start purchasing clothing that is better used in open outdoorsy type scenes. I have a few things in mind that could be coming up but first I want to try and get other things done that have been tucked away in my brain.

This scene’s overall look is a hodge-podge of a lot of different things. Most of it from events that are just about to end their current rounds to ones that have just started. Not to mention the Marketplace, where I have been finding quite a few things to use in my photo sessions.

For this entry I only have one featured product from my brand collaborators. MESANGE has been kind enough to share with me “The Ripple Eyes” from the current round of Men Only Monthly. I’ll give you a few more specifics in just a bit down in the credits portion of this post.

I also managed to make trips to The Men’s Department which recently opened a little over a week ago; I also stopped at the newest round of Man Cave which surprisingly I did not find as much as I normally do but I still didn’t leave there empty handed (I’m a habitual shopper, I can’t help it!)

I really feel like this scene turned out really well. I wasn’t trying to overthink the windlights and felt that my use of LUMIPro turned out decent. Sometimes I even wonder if I’m putting it to use the right way but it is easy to second guess yourself. You’ll probably also notice the color scheme of my clothing and yeah I was feeling a bit nerdy at the time so I went with something a bit obvious.

With another scene in the books I hope that you’ve found at least one thing interesting and will take the provided transportation to the stores and events I’ve linked to. It’s always a pleasure to be as helpful and to maybe inspire someone to create a scene of their own with their own vision. I’ll see you all again just up the road!

Onto the next conversation…

HAIR⊱ ~Tableau Vivant~ Kawashima I – Winter ♯ Marketplace

This is not a new item but I couldn’t help but make the comment that it is one of my most favorite hairs in my entire inventory. I’ve worn it many times as it has been out for what seems like forever but still holds up with all the newer products being sold on the market today. It’s been moved to the Tableau Vivant Marketplace as it is no longer for sale in their store. Guys who are looking for a longer hair that might be what you’d consider vintage but still stands tall…check this out, you won’t be disappointed.

HEADLeLutka – Andrea v 3.1
EYES⊱ MESANGE – The Ripple Eyes @ Men Only MonthlyNEW

I had to make sure I got this in before the end of the current round (for those of you wondering it’s the 15th of November). I love the swirling colors that are intertwined in this set of eyes as I am with all of the other MESANGE releases. You have 15 colors to choose from which for those of you who want variety can get in a HUD with the FATPACK. Mesh eyeballs are also included for those of you who choose not to or just do not have Omega friendly eyes.

FACEStray Dog – Cody T2
BEARDBeusame // Beard V50
BODYBelleza – Jake
TATTOOProdigy Ink – Beckham

This body ink is patterned after a certain celebrated Futbol (Soccer in America) star from Britain. It comes in three different opacities (Fresh, Regular, or Faded) and comes with system layers as well as appliers for Omega, SLink, and TMP for you fellas. Female appliers are also included for those of you gals who might be interested as well.

TANKTOP⊱ DUFAUX – Sporty Tank – Purple @ Man CaveNEW

When I was browsing the Man Cave event, I came across this pretty cool tanktop. There were several color choices and I was a bit vexed when it came to choosing but as I stated earlier I was feeling a bit nerdy so I with with Purple. I would have probably liked the FATPACK for the special edition colors that came with it but at the moment I’m on a bit of a budget so I had to sacrifice and pick one. I’m certainly not disappointed with the fit of this tank. Originally my idea for the scene was to go without a top but when I saw this I knew for sure this would be perfect for a workout scene.

COMPATIBLE With: Aesthetic, Belleza and Signature male bodies.

PANTSYACK – Lazaro

Most people (mind you I say most but not all) do their workouts in either shorts or some kind of track pants so that’s the idea I had in mind as I was putting this together. Yack is a brand that I’ve purchased items from before and went to their store recently for something different and these pants caught my attention. I hadn’t started putting this look together yet so I didn’t get them right away but I do go back to set the final touches to my look. The included HUD has so many color options (with stripes and solid) as well as the ability to change the color of the string tie. It was a very good bargain for what I received and definitely recommend them to anyone who wants to put together a recreational outfit such as this.

COMPATIBLE With: Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza, Classic (XS-XL), Signature, SLink and TMP male bodies.

BACKDROP[ isuka ] make it stop backdrop

This little hole in the wall would be the perfect place for some bachelor to just hang his hat at the end of the day and get in a good workout before calling it good. It might be a little bit downtrodden (okay it’s actually really downtrodden but it has it’s charms). I really like the detail with this skybox as it is another fine backdrop from ISUKA. If you haven’t check them out yet then what are you waiting for? Their builds help paint masterpieces.

Animosity – Gym Flow @ TMDNEW

Need to get your burn on bro? (Sorry reminded me of a commercial and couldn’t help myself). Animosity has come out with a really cool workout pose set which is bento enabled and comes with two versions of the pull up bar. I really like how this turned out but the only thing I might have changed…well actually more like added would have been to include a salmon ladder like Oliver Queen uses in the Arrow TV series. Now it’s more than unlikely that the brand creator for Animosity will see this but if you do happen to read it…maybe an update? Would be cool to see.

[#420] This Cloud…

I don’t want to come back down from this cloud
It’s taken me all this time to find out what I need yeah

Comedown” – BushListen

Hello once again, sorry it has been a while since my last entry but things have been a bit hectic lately. Also had some setbacks trying to get this photo session off with some in-world hiccups so it was suspended a day or so and then the real world kicked in but I got it done and here we are!

I thought that I would combine a little funny/serious tone to this scene.

First I am going to place a little disclaimer by saying that what you see in today’s look/scene does not entirely reflect the views of myself or These Conversations Kill. While I’m not for the use of recreational drugs, I am not against it. Everything has a time and a place and what people decide to do with their time and their bodies is completely up to them. I simply wanted to make a reference to the blog post # in question with a little play on the unofficial smoker’s holiday.

This look that I have is full of items from brand collaborators who have offered review copies for me to feature and tell you about as well as give any thoughts I might have. Designers contributing to this blog entry are Modulus, Mesange and {COLD-ASH}.

Events that I’ve been to and or the review items are located at include Men Only Monthly, The Men’s Department, as well as FaMESHed, We Love RP and Shiny Shabby which all have great various items for males at them right now!

I was recently reminded of a great location to photograph at, The Last Forever. It was time to take a trip back to see if there was a good spot to park my pixels and be able to capture a good scene once I had the pose all ready to go.

You’ll be able to tell with the theme of this entry that the street name (which you can see in the first photo) is appropriate for what is going on in the scene.

It’s about that time to wrap up another fun adventure. For those who just happened to stumble on the page and have never been here, thanks for looking and hope to see you back. To those who are avid viewers who enjoy what they see here I hope you enjoyed and that you’ll be back again for my next entry. Be well until then!

Onto the next conversation…

HAIR⊱ Nutmeg & Entwined. Cameron @ Shiny ShabbyNEW

Beanies are one of my favorite types of hats in both the real and virtual world. What makes this one even better for me is it combines a pair of headphones. Music is essentially my drug, it helps pick me up when there is a tough day or to help celebrate an accomplishment. There is two different versions for males and for females with a HUD that can change the color of both the beanie and the headphones. This is definitely something for those of you who are music loves that are also partial to longer hair.

HEADLeLutka – Andrea v 3.1
EYES⊱ MESANGE – Lephan Eyes @ We Love RPNEW

Another unique eye release from Mesange, 15 colors to choose from via HUD for those of you with Omega applier capable eyes as well as mesh eyes that are included. I find that I’m always in awe with the different combinations of colors that are used in MESANGE products. I know that a lot of eye makers are doing the sizes now but I know that MESANGE was one of the first to start implementing it which offers variety as well to get the very best look for the windows to your soul.

FACE⊱ Modulus – Viktor Skin – Lelutka @ TMDNEW

Viktor is the newest release in the M-Bare skin line and has appliers for both Catwa branded heads as well as LeLutka’s “Andrea” head. With 6 different skin tones to pick from and an included shape with the product, you can create the best look for your vision of who you are.

BODYBelleza – Jake
TATTOO⊱ (( Cheeky Ink )) Joker x Batman Tattoo ♯ Marketplace

Two of my favorite comic book characters together in the form of skin ink. How could I say no to that? I found this on the marketplace as I was randomly searching for things and thought it was something I needed to have. It is compatible with Belleza male bodies and has an applier for Omega enabled bodies too so everyone is covered that might want this tattoo.

SHIRT⊱ {COLD-ASH} BLAKE VNeck Tee (CLASSIC PACK) @ TMDNEW

Want a reason to go to The Men’s Department (Like I need to give you one)? Check out this latest release from {COLD-ASH}, the BLAKE VNeck Tee. There are 8 solid colors to choose from (which you can get all in one HUD by purchasing the FATPACK). This is definitely very casual for just hanging out with your favorite people or doing nothing on a lazy Sunday.

Compatible with: Belleza, Signature (2 types), and TMP male bodies.

JEANS⊱ AITUI – Ripped Jeans – Blue Wash @ M.O.MNEW

When I’m putting a casual look together 3/4 of the time I am going to go with jeans of some type. During one of my trips to Men Only Monthly, I found these jeans to go with the shirt (which I already had). The trend of having ripped/destroyed denim has become increasingly popular over time and I’m starting to really enjoy it myself as it separates itself from your every day plain jeans.

Compatible with: Belleza, Signature, SLink and TMP male bodies.

SHOES⊱ Bleich – Wheeler – Vintage @ FaMESHedNEW

While I was browsing the shopping guide for the FaMESHed event, I came across the latest footwear from Bleich. I own a few pairs of shoes from the brand but as of late I hadn’t because they had not yet come out with anything for Balleza but that has changed. The Wheeler sneakers are everything I love about low-tops. They are patterned after a certain animal named brand and are untied. Bleich sure upped the anti a bit for my love of low-top sneakers and I think you’ll love these just as much as I do. They are available in 6 different colorways.

Compatible with: Belleza, SLink and TMP male bodies (Also includes female mesh body sizes)

Photo taken @ The Last Forever

*!R.O!* Dreamer Pose w/ Mesh Joint ♯ Marketplace

While there really isn’t much I can offer as far as insight into this pose and prop because what you see is what you get, I do have to say it is nicely done and I’ve used several poses from this brand and will continue to utilize them however I can.

I would also like to note that the store itself is having a sale on singles and couples poses until the 17th of November. All single poses are marked at 25L and Couples poses are 50L. If you need poses for your works it doesn’t hurt to go do some shopping you may find plenty of things to work with.

[#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…

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.

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.
