[#596] Can’t Wait One Minute More

I need room to breathe I work for the goals that I set
Wasted time it weighs on my mind

CIV, ♫Can’t Wait One Minute More

Hello again everyone! It’s been a few since I last posted and that isn’t normal (well normal for this year anyway) but I needed a little time to recharge and get back on track a little bit. I had most of this photo session set up for a few days before I actually settled down to shoot it but I knew that when I did it was going to be kind of a riot.

A little insight into this post is that the pose that I’m using by Image Essentials was actually an odd suggestion in a conversation with the store’s owner, Kay Weston. I don’t even know how it came about as a considerable amount of time has passed since that talk happened but I am pretty sure that it was just suggesting random pose ideas to be helpful and that was a weird one that happened to come to fruition.

“Party Aftermath” is every bit what it sounds like though I’m kind of using it in a different context in my scene but the same basic idea applies. I think in my case it’s more like my virtual self is looking at things like “Man I really gotta go and well the dog’s doing it why can’t I?” One thing I have to say is that I don’t promote public urination because it’s super unsanitary and you never know what you could be bringing home with you by posting up against a brick wall such as I am in this photo.

Moral of the story is…probably don’t try this at home!

Image Essentials – Party Aftermath 1 Pose & Prop

  • Bento compatible pose (must use Bento viewer)
  • Wet pall prop with built in pose
  • 3 different pose positions to choose from
  • Adjustable via clickable menu
  • Exclusive to the Truth or Dare Affair event until 02/28/19

This blog also contains items from The Men Jail event that I really think people might like including the “Jeon Sweatshirt” by ExalteD. Most of the time I’m not a fan of shirts or jackets where I’m not able to see my hands (because the style has hands in pockets and things of that nature) but this shirt changed my mind some with how it is really long and tied at the ends, which is something I used to do all the time in my younger years.

The FATPACK has really great color options (8 in all) which covers the usual core range of colors and not all men care about having tons of colors so I can say that these are definitely fine enough for the casual consumer that wants a choice but doesn’t desire a lot of it. Of course if just getting one color is the most appealing then it’s a good way to go with the single colors that are also for sale.

ExalteD – Jeon Sweatshirt

  • Original mesh
  • FATPACK available with HUD containing 8 colors
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake) and Signature (Gianni) mesh bodies
  • Exclusive to The Men Jail until 02/28/19

Because of the angle of the main photo for the blog it was necessary for me to do a secondary shot that combined more closer looks of other products that cannot be as closely seen. Which brings me to the eyes I am wearing by Gloom which have the designation of the “Insta Collection”, these eyes are very detailed and when taking the close-up that was definitely the case I wanted to make to show you this brand is for real.

There are 8 selectable iris colors in this set that are for sale separately or can be purchased all together in a FATPACK to give you that right color at the right moment you need it. I do not change eyes all that often and I’ll be up front about it because unless it is an item from an event then usually my angles and photos don’t incorporate being that close to my face; if I am going to blog eyes I definitely go for ones that I really like otherwise what’s the point of it?

Gloom – Insta Collection Eyes

  • 8 iris colors via appliers (sold separately and as a FATPACK option)
  • Applier HUDs for CATWA, Genus and Omega
  • Exclusive to The Men Jail until 02/28/19

Also don’t adjust your eyes! My new ‘do is meant to try to match my top the best it possibly can and I think the Reds HUD that is a part of the “Mike Hair” by Modulus really makes an impression. I feel like the tone that I used within the applier pack really pops with the windlight I played around with to make sure that attention would be not only on the hair but also on the ExalteD sweatshirt.

I love the vibrant tone of this hair and it has that appearance like I could still possibly be drunk and randomly choosing a spot to pee and there happens to maybe be a dog following me and doing what it sees…there’s that possibility too but I’m going to remain tight lipped on that because I can’t reveal all my cards.

Medium type messy hair don’t care!

Modulus – Mike Hair

  • Original “nex-gen” alpha mesh
  • 5 individual color HUDs + integrated color picker
  • 40 color FATPACK also available
  • Left and right mirrored options included
  • Exclusive to Equal10 until 03/05/19

The last item I have on my featured list are the “Sobek Sneakers” by Native Urban. These are styled after one of my favorite sneaker brands of all time and I’m not going to properly name them because I don’t want to cause any issues but if you know anything about shoes then you’ll definitely recognize the style. These particular shoes are not exact to the real deal for obvious reasons but they are close and that makes me love them all the same; especially from one of my favorite brands.

I have other versions from other stores that are similar but the one things I can say about these is the absurd amount of customization that goes along with them; there is a way to color just about every single part of the shoe to make them absolutely your favorite sneaker. For longtime fans of Native Urban I know that you won’t be disappointed with these shoes because it doesn’t matter if you are a skater or just someone who likes low tops that are about as classic as they come, you’ll want to sport these out on the grid….I’ve been wearing them for several days already.

Native Urban – Sobek Sneakers

  • Original mesh
  • 15 customizable parts (FATPACK exclusive)
  • 17 colors (FATPACK exclusive)
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake) and Signature (Gianni) mesh bodies
  • Exclusive to TMD until 02/28/19

I have to say this was definitely a longer blog than I intended but it’s been quite a few days since my last one so putting something this big together to kickstart everything was a necessity in my book. I covered a lot of ground from great stores and events which should at least get some of you hopefully out there before the weekend ends or at the start of the week.

On that note though I think it is definitely time to wrap this up and post it up so I can do a little promoting and also begin work on the next look and scene which I’ve yet to determine but I’ve slowly started to work on it. I’ll leave you all with the style info and perhaps I’ll run into you at Man Cave which just started today and I’ve seen some things that could have lots of potential.

Catch you all again very soon!

[#594] No Matter What

And everybody said that we would never last,
And if they saw us now I bet they’d take it back
It doesn’t matter what we do or what we say
‘Cause nothing matters anyway!

Papa Roach, ♫No Matter What

My last blog was a bit on the heavy side and to maintain the balance, I chose to do something upbeat and also because I really wanted to show off this pose by Mouni Poses that is one of the many couples poses at the Valentine’s Pop Up that still has 4 days left before it closes down. That means if you’re planning to do some kind of sweet and romantic pose with your significant other then don’t wait until the last minute and be a sad bum because you’ve forgotten.

“Shallow” is the name of the pose and maybe I’m not reading into the overall look of the pose but I don’t find anything shallow about it. To me it is just a couple sitting together with him gazing at her in a very sweet way (but that could just be the way I see it?) However, there may be a little disinterest on Brenna’s part maybe because chocolate and animals tend to overrule male attention but I still don’t feel that it is shallow but still a wonderful pose.

Mouni Poses – Shallow Couples Pose

  • Bento couples pose (bento viewer needed)
  • Poseballs adjustable via build/edit mode
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair’s Valetine’s Pop Up until 02/14/19

At this months round of The Men Jail, you can get this outfit by Gild called “Lazy Pants Combinaison” which is a complete mesh outfit of a sleeveless shirt with long rolled up pants that I purposely wore in Black and Pink to go with the Valentine’s Theme that it seems to be going on. Each pants color comes with a version with a black shirt or a white shirt giving you the option to choose what you like best.

I am a fan of this outfit because of the fact that it is loose fitting and not binding to the body; it adds to the overall look of comfort while still being very stylish. Gild is one of those brands that I seek out when they are at an event because I know that there will be several good options and the clothing is of high quality without making me have to decide between their item and another because usually I can get both.

Gild – Lazy Pants Combinaison

  • Original mesh
  • 4 pants colors to choose from (sold separately)
  • FATPACK is also available
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake) and Signature (Gianni) mesh bodies
  • Exclusive to The Men Jail until 02/28/19

For the second straight blog I’m wearing the “Troy Hair” from Modulus and I can hear some of my friends saying something about me actually wearing something twice in a row but I’m wearing the hair because I like it and in this look I kind of feel like I might be a Troy so it works out well. Also to be fair in the last photo I did it wasn’t easy at all to see the hair with the lighting and darkness of the pool so I wanted to give a better look (with a shot taken in daylight).

Considering that I did just blog this hair, I’m not going to list features because it’s already a part of the one before. Moving to those of you ladies that may browse this site for your guy or see something that Brenna might be wearing (like the romper and hair accessory she’s wearing in this post), you’ll know that Collabor88 or just C88 for most people (abbreviations are the thing these days). Also the valentine’s Pomeranian by Black Bantam is also at the event and I have a feeling that it is likely a top seller there as animal makers such as them and Jian create such realistic looking pet decor.

On that note, I’m going to wrap this up and get it sent out because I’m working with a deadline of sorts and I’d like not to go past it, however, before I do go I have to say that working with the Black Dragon viewer so far has been an experience but it’s been rather pleasant so far. I feel that it gives my photos a little extra from what I have noticed and others have also. I always want to make sure that my photos are reflective of what I see in my head and I believe that the more comfortable I get with Black Dragon, I can achieve that.

The weekend is about over now so it’s back to the grind but I wish everyone a productive and hopefully enjoyable week. I’ll be posting as much as I can if the spirit moves me and the creativity does as well. There are a few ideas I’d like to get out of my brain this week if possible before I end up forgetting them (would be a shame to waste something I feel is a good idea).

Until the next blog, be well and take care of you and yours and maybe try sometime new that you’ve been wanting to do but have hesitated. Good things may come of it and you’ll wonder what took you so long.

[#593] Dear Agony

Leave me alone
God let me go
I’m blue and cold
Black sky will burn
Love pull me down
Hate lift me up
Just turn around
There’s nothing left

Breaking Benjamin, ♫Dear Agony

When the idea for this blog first came into my brain I wasn’t 100% sure how I wanted to go about it or how it would be received; I had to keep in mind that this is predominantly my space and I choose what is posted here. Very little do I like to talk about myself in any capacity even though I’m told that it is a Leo trait to be about yourself.

This site has always been about emotions in every degree you can think of. One day I might post something like I am today and the next post could be funny, light hearted, romantic or even *gasp* sexy. That’s just how this journey called life goes and one cannot exist without the other and that is what I personally believe.

The song I’ve chosen, “Dear Agony” could be construed many different ways. It can be looked at as someone with depression and suicidal thoughts or it could be thought of as someone dealing with an addiction/substance abuse problems and are seeking a means to pull themselves out of their predicament. The way it is personalized for me is that I deal with pain on a consistent basis due to chronic back issues that I have had for over 10 years that have no way of ever being normal. In a sense I feel like I’m slowly drowning sometimes with the knowledge that down the road it will likely reach a point that I don’t want to think about and that is what lead me to setting up the scene as I did.

Somehow I have willed myself to stay off of any mainstream painkillers but some days getting out of bed feels unbearable but I don’t want to be confined to staying in one spot all the time. I’m not in a position where a surgical procedure is required and even if it were a possibility the chance of it making my situation worse is too risky for me to consider.

This song resonates for me because I constantly wish to be in a place where I was before all of this started but I know it isn’t possible. I get through by being creative in a virtual world that I can do whatever I please and the photos I take that turn into these blogs are something that keeps my mind off of everything else. I don’t necessarily like putting stuff like this out in the world because I’m not a martyr, I’m just a person that struggles like everyone else. Perhaps it is something that when someone reads it they think “This person is like me, they understand the kind of thing I’m going through”. This struggle has put me in some dark places but I refuse to let it pull me in completely.

I may not enjoy sharing pieces of my life in detail but I don’t regret it either.

Okay…so I’m done with the heavy stuff now and I can get into the fun part of the blog which is about events, products, and the creation process and not necessarily in that order. I’m not quite sure how I managed to pull off getting this image to be even remotely close to how I saw it in my head but I can say that trying some new things might have helped.

Last year I entertained the thought of giving the Black Dragon viewer a try because many of my peers were doing some really cool things with it. I installed it and for me it was complicated enough that I said to hell with it and let the idea go that it might help my work out. It wasn’t until a few nights ago that I chose to give it another try and the worst that could happen is that I get frustrated and ditch it again. This time around though I watched helpful tutorials and took some of the confusion out of it and modeled my settings after the ones used by one of my favorite pose makers who uses it for their photos.

I’d like to know if you think if it’s made a difference?

I feel very fortunate that Modulus has quite a few releases at various events at the moment because I can keep my hair game on point. The Men’s Department is where the “Troy Hair” can be found and I remember when the product ad first showed up on Facebook, my friend Jason, said that he felt everyone had a stuck up Troy in their lives. I can say that I’ve never had the pleasure or displeasure of knowing anyone named Troy personally. So Jason if the Troy you knew wasn’t on your favorite list you can just look at this photo and take satisfaction to know I drowned him! (That’s a bit much but my humor is odd sometimes).

With the angle of the camera and the way the hair naturally flows it gives the effect of movement in the water as longer hair does when you are swimming. It’s not always easy when going for realism to get something to work without manipulation but I choose not to. Manipulating anything (especially products from a store I blog for) wouldn’t be right but luckily for me with Modulus I don’t have to.

Modulus – Troy Hair

  • 100% original “nex-gen” alpha mesh
  • 5 color tone packs + integrated tinting HUDs to choose from
  • 40 color FATPACK also for sale
  • Exclusive to TMD until 02/27/19

For the outfit, I’m wearing some items that I had in my closet and I’m super certain have blogged in the past. Usually I tend not to go into extensive detail about those. That’s how I feel about items that are at least more than 2 or 3 months old (in this case at least a year). To be honest I give the most coverage to my brands and events that have new things out and also if there’s something that I find outside of that which excites me then I’ll make that a main feature as well.

This photo would not have been possible without the “Serene Pool” skybox from Paparazzi. This highly detailed indoor pool room comes complete with materials and lighting to give it a very realistic look for photography and it looks even better in the Black Dragon viewer with the right settings. There were actually several other ideas I had for this skybox but ultimately the photo that resulted from this shoot was my main idea. There’s nothing saying that I can’t use it again in the future for another blog taken from the vantage point from above the water right?

On that note, I think it’s time for me to wrap this blog post up so I can get it out into the universe as I am super proud of how the picture turned out. It may be the idea of it being the first one I’ve ever done with the Black Dragon viewer but I feel like it has a different feel to it then some of my previous work and time will tell the story of if I stick with this method or go back to what I was done.

Now I’m off to go crank some tunes and put a new look together for a little idea I have for the next blog. For all of you out there that might have experience with any of the feelings this blog might have brought about, we’re all in this together and we just have to do whatever is necessary to live our best lives. Take care until the next one everyone.

Kindest regards,

Brennan

[#592] Drifting

Don’t tell me you can’t love yourself
You can love yourself, like you never felt
Can tell you I was scared to try
Don’t be scared to try, if you look inside
You could be anything
I could be anything

Adelitas Way, ♫Drifting

Today was the first time I’ve visited the Ironwood Hills sim a long time and on and off there were talks of it closing so I wanted to at least take one more shot there that was recent if it indeed decides to shut down for good. The latter would be a shame because it’s a fantastically put together post-apocalyptic landmark that I took a lot of photos in the earlier part of my blogging career when it was fresh and new.

It was one of the first I considered to visit first when the idea for this photo came into my brain. The idea circled around of me dressed up predominantly in black looking pretty rough like the world had taken its toll and that I’ve spent most of my time drinking whiskey (or whatever I could get my hands on). I arrived and started scouting when I found a run down decayed building with a fire escape that lead up to a fire barrel and a decrepit mattress (which didn’t make the cut in the photo I completed).

This was where I needed to work my magic.

I have to say that the look I put together for this blog is one of my favorites. This is the type of style that suits me well (in my mind) and likely would wear every day if it wouldn’t weird me out by not changing clothes (and I do often because of being a blogger). Black is not really a color as far as most are concerned but it is one of my favorites as far as clothing goes, however, wearing black in every look would not be productive for me or for anyone who visits.

My hairstyle really fits well in the environment as it appears unkempt (not dirty or unwashed just uncombed). “Sawyer” is brought to you by Modulus at Uber and it’s great that us guys can get things at the event too and who better than a great hair brand? Of course it is a medium length messy style that works to bring about the pessimistic, heavy drinking, non shaving, down on his luck kind of guy that I envisioned.

The more I think about it as I listen to “Drifting” it was the best choice and really only choice to be the soundtrack of this blog post. The picture and the lyrics in the song to me coincide to tell a story and it can be interpreted whatever way the mind of the readers want it to. That’s the best thing about photos just like with music…it can mean different things to different people and not all are the same.

Modulus – Sawyer Hair

  • Original “Nex-Gen” Alpha Mesh

  • 40 color tone FATPACK also availalble

Several months ago ::K:: released the “Sephiroth Coat” at TMD and normally I grab stuff I really like when it first comes out but somehow I managed to forget about it and didn’t realize it until TMD was already over for that round. I am pretty sure that it was the December round which makes a lot of sense because it was a super busy month for me with many things dividing my attention.

I gave it a bit of time before I took a trip to the flagship store and it was there waiting for me with open arms and I didn’t hesitate; I’m a sucker for long coats (if there was something to blame for that it’s likely both a combination of Highlander and The Crow). Then I left it in my inventory for a bit because there wasn’t an idea suitable enough for me to bother opening it up…until the last few days.

Slowly I put my plan together of what hairstyle I was going to do and then also what pants and shoes (which are not visible to really talk about them but I have blogged them before) to pair them with and because I would feel bad for not mentioning them I will at least give them an honorable mention. One of my easy go to pairs of pants are Cold-Ash’s “Dean Chinos” because they go with just about everything and fit superbly. I’ve worn them quite often even in photos that you might not recognize that I’m wearing them because I’m really a fan of them.

My shoes are from A&D and are called “Firenze”, they are similar in style to an oxford shoe but not completely. I consider these a go to as well when I’m wearing pants that are not fit for boots or ankle boots as well as when sneakers will not compliment the rest of the outfit. They are certainly worth giving a look and have been around a bit as well as have had an update to them at one point.

The most important part though is not just the location that helped tell the story but the pose itself. Reve Obscura makes some of the best and easily affordable poses on the grid plus the creator behind the store is a cool dude as well (I’ve spoken to him a time or so via Facebook). This pose and prop set contains everything you need to be the best lush you can possibly be from the bottle of liquor down to the half full glass in hand. I promise you that if you’re looking for poses you won’t be able to leave Reve Obscura without buying something because it’s inspired you.

On that note I really should wrap things up before it gets to be too late. I have a few other ideas I want to entertain before I call it an evening (which includes some outfit prep for future blogs). I definitely encourage you to take the taxi’s to the stores and events left in the style credits because as a journalist of sorts it’s my job to help bring readers to things that are new or maybe new to them.

The pleasure’s been all mine and hope that you’ll be back again for the next one which I’d expect will be done in the next day or so. Until then be safe, be well, and be your best self because it’s all we can really do to help make the world function a tad better.

Best regards,

Brennan

[#591] Two Is Better Than One

I remember what you wore on the first day
You came into my life and I thought hey
You know, this could be something

Boys Like Girls (feat. Taylor Swift), ♫Two Is Better Than One

In just a couple days Pose Fair will grace all of us photographers with a little something called the “Valentine Pop-Up” round. For one week all of you that enjoy taking photos that specialize in love and couples will be greeted with new items from all the brands you know and love and of course the store you may have not been introduced to.

The concept of Valentine’s Day varies from person to person. There are the people who are all about it and inundate their special someone with chocolate, candy and flowers while on the other end there are those who despise the thought of relationships because of negative experiences. I’ve been on both ends of the spectrum in my life and honestly I prefer to be somewhere right in the middle leaning towards glorifying it.

In the previous years of being a blogger I was not much for blogging couples poses because there wasn’t much of an opportunity to do it nor was I in a relationship where the person I was with had the interest to do it or didn’t have the time. My excuse for it was that I considered myself just a male blogger even though I did want to branch out to do other things when I had access to them. It’s been much easier with having Brenna in my life because she’s willing to help me when I need to in whatever way that I ask but I try not to overdo my requests. We did a lot of work for the January edition of Pose Fair and I can’t thank her enough for that.

With the Valentine’s Pop Up starting I wanted to do something a little different and I found that in the Space Cadet “Anyone Else” pose. It’s not your typical romantic pose and added a fun element to the mix. The element of surprise wrapped up in a game of “guess who” all rolled into one still makes for what I consider a sweet and special moment.

Space Cadet is a store that I’ve kept my eye on since my introduction to them in January. I really loved the “Teen Spirit” pose set and the very second I saw the promotional ad for this pose I had to make sure that I blogged it. I really can’t say enough good things about the poses I have experience with and even scrolling Jane’s (Space Cadet’s owner) Flickr feed there are many other poses that I wouldn’t mind looking into. As much as I love stores that have name recognition, I also like to show appreciation for other stores who work just as hard but are newer to the grid.

Space Cadet – Anyone Else Couples Pose

  • Bento couples pose
  • Unlinked poses that can be edited to adjust height
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair’s Valentines Pop Up round starting Feb. 07th

The Men Jail is also about to open up for its February round and I’m stoked to be showing you my newest facial hair by REBIRTH. The “Jekyll” beard is essentially a combination of a few different styles wrapped up into one. The style I consider it to be most like is what quite a few people (myself included) call the “Lemmy” named after Motorhead vocalist, the last Lemmy Kilmister. I think that the pose softens the look a little because without my eyes being covered I have an angry disposition but I know that I’m definitely not mad.

The beard comes in two parts so you can leave off the sideburns and rock a “Fu Manchu” and it may not be good to associate with Hulk Hogan these days but he’s the most notable person in pop culture that I can think of who has this type of facial hair. The beard also is accompanied by an omega applier to fill in spots on the face and give a small goatee to add extra flair.

REBIRTH – Jekyll Beard

  • Original mesh
  • 4 different colors to choose from (sold separately)
  • Omega applier for fill in areas of facial hair
  • Coming to The Men Jail Feb. 8th!

The A+ Event still has just over a week to go before it’s inaugural round ends and there’s still time to shop and while there, gentleman, you can take a look at Modulus’ “Don Hair” at the event. It’s a slicked back short style that is best used with a hairbase with shaved sides to give it the best look. When I had long enough hair (I keep it very short these days in the real world) I would often have my hair combed back this way with a little product because of my annoyance of hair being in my face.

Unlike a lot of the styles Modulus has released lately this does not feature any mirrored versions as it does not call for it. It’s a great style that works well for guys who may not favor longer styles.

Modulus – Don Hair

  • Original “Nex-Gen” Alpha Mesh
  • 5 hair tone packs with integrated color tinting HUDs
  • 40 tone FATPACK also for sale
  • Exclusive to the A+ Event until 02/16/19

Brenna did a little bit of shopping herself at FaMESHed and came home with the top she has on that is made by VIbing and is named “Neesi”. On her trip she also stopped by Magika and picked up their newest hair release “Thea”. That hair suits her very well and looks great on her but I’ll be considered biased all things considered but it’s just the honest truth.

My outfit (what is viewable in the photo) is all items from my closet and not new or an event exclusive. I really love the collabs that Hermony and Tonktastic do and I am still pretty much in cold weather mode and will be until the season starts to change where Brenna and I live. I don’t see that happening anytime in the foreseeable future which tells me a lot of long sleeved outfits or jackets as part of my style and that’s alright too.

It’s been a few days since my last post so I’m going to wrap this up and leave all of you with both our stylings and possibly make it a shopping date. We go on them sometimes so I know that it is a thing for couples to do when new and exciting items hit events and stores.

It has been wonderful sharing with you as always and I’ll be back again with more fun things so sit tight until then and keep your eyes peeled here. Be kind, be amazing and be yourself…that’s all that you can do!

Kindest regards,

Brennan

[#585] More Than A Feeling

It’s more than a feeling
When I hear that old song they used to play
And I begin dreaming
‘Til I see Marianne walk away
I see my Marianne walkin’ away

Boston, ♫More Than A Feeling

My coverage for Pose Fair is close to completion as the event closes up tomorrow night but I still have a few more tricks up my sleeve before all is said and done. I grabbed my brother Paul for a shoot that reminds me a little bit of when I was younger in the real world and I used to spend time with my brother. Memories like this are fun to try to portray virtually because the internet is able to hold onto them for a long time.

Space Cadet’s pose set “Teen Spirit” is a fun one that has five different air guitar poses. Not many people I know of do it today but it was a pretty big thing to do for fun when listening to music in my younger years (This was before video games took over). Both Paul and I have different poses from the set and I cannot tell you how much fun we had with this and the coolest part is that the poses are named after musicians such as Axl Rose and Slash from Guns N’ Roses.

Many of the poses that I have used for blogs from Pose Fair are great (as are ones that I have not as well) but this definitely is a lot of fun and I think that anyone that gets this pose pack could live out their rock star fantasies.

Space Cadet – Teen Spirit Pose Set

  • Bento enabled poses (bento viewer needed)
  • 5 different poses
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair until 01/26/19

Modulus has quite a few new releases going right now and in this post the style I have on is the “Pete Hair”. It is a short to mid length style that flows to one side of the face or the other depending on which version you wear. I have seen a lot of musicians have similar hairstyles to this and using it for this photo works out for me because I feel like I choose the right direction for the hair to fall as I jam out to some Boston.

It goes without saying that if you’re a guy looking for new hair that you should check out Modulus not only just their store but also at the events they participate in which they are attached to some of the best out there including male specific ones.

Modulus – Pete Hair

  • 100% original “nex-gen” alpha mesh
  • 5 color packs with integrated color tinting HUDs
  • 40 color FATPACK is also available
  • Exclusive to Man Cave until 02/11/19

I‘ve been sticking with my closet and wearing clothes that likely have been featured a time or two here but I decided to do a little shopping this afternoon; visiting both The Men’s Department and Men Only Monthly to put together an outfit that I really like. I’ll start with my shirt which is from Chuck Size and called “FABIO”. Graphic shirts are probably my most favorite type of shirt there is and the designs that this store has on theirs is super cool to me. It only makes sense that if I am doing a photo where I’m playing air guitar to possibly one of the most well known songs of the last 40+ years that a shirt with a skeleton holding a guitar is appropriate.

The jogging pants I am wearing come from etham and can be found at Men Only Monthly. Taking into account all of the previous things I mentioned, jogging pants made it clear to me that I have kind of a retro look going on that is pretty 80’s or 90’s inspired. Might as well be comfortable while I’m doing my best impression of just about any famous guitar player out there wailing away at a guitar solo.

Paul is attired in past releases from Cold-Ash and takes after his brother when it comes to knowing good clothing when he sees it.

On that note I think we’ve jammed out a good while and you all know what’s what. Time for some credits to get you out there shopping and if the weather is anything like it is here…staying in and going on a shopping trip is a lot more exciting. If you must venture out please be safe and warm and do NOT lick frozen light poles, you’ll live to regret it!

Best regards,

B

[#584] Mama’s Got A Girlfriend Now

But mama’s got a girlfriend now boy
Mama’s got a girlfriend now
Mama’s got a girlfriend
Mama’s got a true friend
Mama’s got a girlfriend now

Ben Harper, ♫Mama’s Got A Girlfriend Now

When I take photographs, I like to try and do a little bit of everything. More often not it often it is a serious shot and the rest are a random mix of romantic and now and then I take a few that are comical and not meant to be serious at all. This entry is one of those moments because I didn’t want to make the content of the photo sad because it could be depicted that way.

CH Poses have two different pose sets that feature three people in them and the one I am using is called “Pizza Is Life”. The situation my character is in is that the woman in his life decided she prefers the attention of her own gender which leaves him with only pizza to console him. This reminded me of the old Ben Harper song, “Mama’s Got A Girlfriend Now”. The situation in the song is perhaps a little different as it is told from the viewpoint of a child whose Father is not very good at being a husband so the Mother in question turns to the comfort of another woman who makes her happy.

I cracked up after I put the scene together thanks to the help of Brenna and Brooke who modeled for me while I did all the work taking the photo (and eating a slice of pizza). It was Brenna’s quick thinking to find the Pizza Parlor for us to do the scene in and for the price I could not beat it at all. Probably one of the least expensive props I’ve used during my time as a blogger.

Keep in mind that with this triple pose that there may be some adjustments made as I had to work with the height and closeness between the two girls but it isn’t bad at all but I may as well say something because lots of different avi’s on the grid are of different shapes (and heights). The pose also comes with the mesh slice of pizza which is super awesome.

CH Poses – Pizza Is Life Pose and Prop

  • Bento enabled 3 person pose (bento viewer needed)
  • Adjustable to suit different sized avi’s
  • Mesh Pizza slice included
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair until 01/26/19

Considering my attire is a collection of items I have blogged in the past, I will tell you all about the latest event to hit the grid. From the people that brought us Collabor88 comes Soiree, which is listed as the “after party” to C88. The prices vary unlike the latter which usually has 88 somewhere in the price and are more on the edgier side compared to it’s sister event.

Brenna is wearing the new dual release shirt and shorts by Emery named “Dante” and “Magnus” which are a long sleeved cropped shirt and booty shorts respectively. Her hair is also from the event and is Exile’s latest style called “Hana”. I got made fun of a little for saying that she should be a blogger in my last entry so I won’t go that route again but I will compliment her on her style because I’m always impressed with what she wears (her style is eclectic).

Brooke’s items from Soiree include her hair from Monso that is called “My Hair Terri”. Her dress is from C’iest la Vie, the “Sinea Dress”; as a fan of stars I really like the star print that is on the lower part of the dress. The combination pink upper and lower blue with yellow stars would have probably done well also in the dance blog I did last (because of it being what I’d say is retro).

Once again I’m wearing more Cold-Ash because I really love the “CARSON Hoodie” which I picked a lime green color that is very out of the ordinary for me but I wanted something different. For my hat and hair style I’m giving another look at Modulus’ “Sam Hat & Hair” to go along with the hoodie. The jeans I am wearing come from Kitt Ragy’s ::K:: store and are the “Slim Fit Jeans” in indigo that I have used before somewhere in blogs past. To me the scene called for a chill outfit and and that did the trick as far as I am concerned.

On that note (which is now my favorite way to begin ending a blog) I am going to provide you with all of the visual things you can see in our styles and of course if I might have missed out on something that you need to know about because you can’t live without it, simply drop me a line by finding my contact information in my bio and I’ll be glad to assist you with anything in this post or any of the previous ones the best I can.

I hope that you’ve been entertained by this post as much as I was taking the picture. We all need a laugh as much as possible because when we don’t it builds up and the results aren’t as fun as humor can be. There’s a massive cold front coming and for those of you that I know who are going to be experiencing it, I urge you to stay indoors if you can and if there isn’t a way around it to bundle up. Getting sick this time of year does not take a lot of effort I promise you. I hope to see you back here again soon and be well and enjoy whatever you do until next time.

Warmest regards,

B
