[#351] Shake It Like A Polaroid Picture

You think you’ve got it
Oh, you think you’ve got it
But got it just don’t get it
Til there’s nothing at all

Hey Ya” –  Outkast  ♫Listen

Well now that the weekend’s just about over it’s time to get back to business. With just a week left to go get your shop on at the Skin Fair, I’ve got another couple releases from the event to keep you entertained.

The 3rd and final exclusive release that I have for you from Modulus is called “Rocky” and is is a darker skin that comes in almond, caramel, and expresso tones. The last time I featured a skin with these tones I believe I used the caramel so I chose to switch it up and go with almond this time. With using the projector lights from LUMIPro, I think the end result turned out nicely.

Another Skin Fair release and is the second of three exclusives from Reach Shapes is the “Randall” shape. I felt it went really well with “Rocky” and made a very tough and handsome look that would slay the ladies at the club…when not in the rest room that is!

Going back to an old favorite, I’m wearing the RIOT “Eli Chill” pants. I couldn’t quite get the exact look of Andre 3000 of Outkast but I thought I would try to get as close as possible being that I used their song as a them for this session.

For a second straight entry, I’m wearing a hair made from no. match, which is called “No AIM” and it can be purchased at Cosmopolitan which is running this current cycle for another week which is the same day that Skin Fair ends so I urge you to go out and grab it. It comes with a HUD that you can change the head scarf to four different colors.

I wasn’t able to quite make it before the end of n.21 but the “Gemini Lowtops” from FLite are the perfect combination with the “Eli Chill” pants for a cool casual hangout look. Sizes for the shoe include male and female SLink, Belleza, Maitreya and also Standard unrigged for the gals and fellas that do not use any of the mentioned mesh bodies.

The backdrop you see is from the “Illusion” set from MINIMAL that you can still get at the current round of Uber. There’s not much time for you to go grab it so you might want to hurry because I’ve enjoyed using every one of the backdrops that I have used out of this set. I look forward to seeing what MINIMAL will do for their next group of them.

A blogger’s work is never done if you have ever been one or even know one in your life. It’s time for me to get back to it so I can give you a few more Skin Fair items before they close the doors for another awesome year of products.

Until next time, stay stylish fellas.

I don’t care if Monday’s blue

Friday I’m In Love” –  The Cure  ♫Listen

TGIF!!! Also for those of you who are Irish (and to those who find a way to be Irish) Happy St. Patty’s Day!

I hope everyone has had as productive a week as it seems I have. Now that the weekend approaches it’ll be time to recover from all the great events and shopping that’s been done. For this entry today I ‘ve taken a break from my coverage of Skin Fair to bring some new items from TMD from brands such as Modulus and ::K:: and also a new (and old) release from FLite.

Here’s the details…

Evan is the latest in the M-Bare line of skins from Modulus that was released for the current round of The Men’s Department. It has the options for brows or browless and also has built in facial hair if you choose to use it and there is also an option for a combination of both. I like how this skin paired up with the Miles shape from REACH.

I’ve got a double helping of ::K:: in the form of the “Leon Sarrouel” pants and the “Leon Singlet” which make a great matching pair and are currently also available at TMD. Inside the package there are sizes for [SIGNATURE] Gianni, SLink Physique, Standard and TMP body types.

Now I usually don’t have too many issues with clothing but I noticed that for the Leon Singlet which I am wearing for the Gianni body, when you alpha out the back to not make your skin poke out there is a space under your shoulder that looks like a bite has been taken out. Now without the alpha cuts there are spots that poke out from the back. I’m not making a huge gripe about it but I thought it was necessary to inform the readers of this and will be getting a hold of Mr. Ragu about it as well. It may not be an issue if you are standing still without an AO but everyone uses them these days so that might create and issue.

FLite has gone and done it again! They have refashioned one of their old releases so that it is compatible with female and male mesh body types. The “Retro” Gliders is a limited to 1000 product that is available now at their main location. It only is available as a Fatpack and gives you several out of the box options as well as the ability to color different parts yourself. Sizes include: Belleza, Maitreya, SLink and TMP for the ladies and for the fellas: SLink, TMP, and Standard sizes which could also be applicable for Unisex styling. These are definitely some cool kicks and I have always enjoyed the FLite brand.

For my hair, I have the “No Offence” which is what inspired me mostly for the theme of the post. I’m a pretty casual fan of the band, The Cure and the hair screamed the essence of frontman Robert Smith so I ran with it and tried my best to create a look that was reminiscent and used the MINIMAL Illusion #3 backdrop because it seemed very 80’s/90’s and was perfect for what I needed.

Be sure to check back for more coverage of Skin Fair and also the newly stocked Men Only Monthly event which I’ll be sure to have goodies from. Have yourselves a great weekend and until next time, stay stylish fellas.

[#348] All Hell Can’t Stop Us Now

It has to start somewhere
It has to start sometime
What better place than here?
What better time than now?

Guerilla Radio” –  Rage Against The Machine  ♫Listen

It’s now on to entry #3 in These Conversations Kill’s coverage of Skin Fair. This time not only is there a skin but also some ink for those of you who love using your skin as an art canvas.

I’ll start though with the very top of the body and work my way down, seems like the best way to break things down.

At The Crossroads event there is a new release by hair creator “tram”. You can purchase the G0220 style with three different HUD packs to choose from. I thought this style went best with the look I was going for as it seems to fit the different asian trends I’ve noticed lately. A longer pulled back style with some curls left in the front and a small little tail in the back. I really like it along with the textures and I have a feeling that it may have some use in future works.

This is also the third release from MESANGE from their exclusives for the We ❤ RP event. The “Tikal Eyes” have 15 different options for you and for those of you with Omega enabled eyes a HUD to change them as well as the standard mesh versions. Each eye has different iris/pupil sizes for you to stylize yourself.

Modulus’ “Jae-Sun” skin is the second I’ve featured of the three exclusives from Skin Fair. I chose to stick with the included shape and hairbase for this one because it was the best fit for what I was going for. I also chose to use the full eyebrow/beard combination as well for a little more rugged looking assassin. Gives a bit more of an “edge” if you get my drift.

The trend for tattoos on the grid these days seems to lean towards using different images and kind of mashing them up to create a theme. Personally I’m not sure that I understand it but it does tend to make for some cool looking ink and that’s what I feel Dappa has done here. “The Alchemist” grabbed my attention the moment I saw the advertisement. From the image of the knight on the left pectoral to the King Arthur type theme, it was just something I had to have. Provided in the package are the standard tattoo layers and then HUDS for various body types with fresh and faded opacity levels. It’s a must have tattoo and a high favorite of mine in all of the ones I’ve seen offered lately.

Today is the final day of the February/March round of the Signature Event. I’m happy that I got this in even if it is at the 11th hour of sorts but I had to feature the Gabriel bento enabled gloves. There are two versions for sale but I went with the regular version. As much as the version with the ring on the finger called to me, I thought this was best for the idea I was running with.

I have at least one more item to show you before the current round of Men Only Monthly ends on the 15th to restock for the March/April round that begins on the 20th. [Gild] who was once a part of Gabriel has struck out on their own and is off to a good start with some of the items I’ve seen from their brand so far. I’m wearing the “Soft leather easy pants” in the checkered version. I thought that I would do something different since it’s way too easy to just wear a pair of black leather pants and with this being offered it was a refreshing change of pace. Sizes included in the package are for Gianni, SLink Physique, and TMP body style. Sadly there are no standard or fitmesh sizes for this product.

For the backdrop and pose, I’d like to give honorable mention to both MINIMAL and Q-Poses. They helped make this head easier in creating. I picked up the “Illusion Background” from Uber and “The Warrior” pose set was originally available at Cosmopolitan but you can currently pick it up at their main location or at the current round of 2nd Level.

Time for me to get to the next adventure but I hope you like what you’ve seen and head out to these locations for these great items or for items that peak your interests. Until the next time, stay stylish fellas!

[#347] And I’m Hungry Like The Wolf

Straddle the line in discord and rhyme
I’m on the hunt I’m after you

Hungry Like The Wolf” –  Duran Duran  ♫Listen

We are now on to the second installment of Skin Fair 2017 along with some 80’s inspiration. I was checking out shopping guides for events when I stumbled upon a new pose set from Chat Noir that just became available at the March round of 2nd Level. I knew right away that I had to have it so I went and picked it up and as I looked at the ad for the product I knew right away what I song I could use as a base for my next photo session.

Duran Duran was a part of my very early formative years as their songs were hits upon hits on the radio charts. Fast forward some years later and it made its way onto the soundtrack of one of my favorite console games of all time: Rock Band. Plenty of hours spent grooving to tunes such as “Hungry Like The Wolf”; it was easily a no brainer.

There are two Skin Fair 2017 submissions I have for all of you in this look. I’ll start off with the “Dimas” skin from Modulus. As with previous releases it comes with the default eyebrows look or you can go browless and use one of your own. Throw in a beard that you can combine with the brows or your own brows to finish. The style is yours to choose. It comes in the usual tones you can associate with most of the skins in the M-Bare line from Modulus.

The second item that I’m featuring is a shape from Reach called “Caleb” and I thought that the combination of the two turned out rather well. A bit of rugged handsomeness as our subject goes out on the prowl. As always with Reach products it does come with a brow shaper and style card for all the details of their ad picture. Once again I went outside the box with my own little experiment.

There is also something new from The Men’s Dept. I’m wearing the not so bad. “TIMEO”Jeans in the Used Stone denim. There are standard sizes, [SIGNATURE] Gianni, SLink Physique, and TMP to choose from and you also get a boot-cut version as well in the package. If this denim tone isn’t to your liking you can also head over there and get these in blue wash or regular stone.

I’ve also discovered a new hair creator that just released products at We ❤ RP. VoluptasVirtualis looks to be a very promising brand and after wearing their “Zeal” hair (for this I used the roots) version, I can tell you I am already a fan. The textures are nice and the hairbases are pretty good as well (which I believe are only included in the Fatpacks)

Just in time before the curtain call on the February/March round of Men Only Monthly I have a great item from ExalteD. It is a ripped tank top and with the version I’m wearing it has little blood splatters. To go along with this item they also have for sale scratch marks that are placed just along where one of the straps of the tank top is broken. Very cool idea which played into the idea for this photo session and made it that much more possible. The tank only comes in a size for the [SIGNATURE] Gianni body.

Last but not least I have the “Rhys” leather loafers which are currently available at The Crossroads. This style of shoe always peaks my interest so when I see one that comes along I always usually give it a try. The package comes with sizes for: Aesthetic, Gianni, SLink Physique, and Standard body feet with the use of an alpha layer.

Now that you’ve gained a little insight into what went into this look, it’s time to leave you with the credits so I can get back out there on hunt and bring you some more great items from the stores and events we all know and love. So until then, stay stylish fellas!

I hope everyone’s doing well since the last entry. Things here are going the same which is always good, right? For this look I’ve got some new items from n21, Men Only Monthly, and the Signature Event that should wet your appetite. Let’s get into it right away, shall we?

lock&tuft has a new hair/hat combination you can purchase at the February/March round of n21 that just started back on the 20th. It’s called “ashton”. You can purchase various color packs or get the full pack with all of them. There are 3 different packs to choose from and all of them (full pack included) comes with a HUD for the hat, which has 9 different colors to choose from. It’s definitely not just a winter type hat, it has plenty of year round use so you don’t have to put it away soon when all of that cool weather moves out.

At the Signature Event you can pick up a pair of the new “Riley” jeans from {COLD-ASH}. These jeans come in six different denim colors and have a HUD for changing the belt color or hiding it altogether. The version I am wearing in this entry are the straight leg variety. You can also purchase the boot cut version in the same denim colors or as full packs. If you love wearing jeans then why not go for the gold and get them all! One more thing about the boot cut version, you get a choice of having the cut be high, mid, or low depending on the type of boot you want to wear. Sizes included for these jeans are: Classic, [SIGNATURE] Gianni, SLink Physique, and TMP for those of you with those mesh style bodies.

At Men Only Monthly, 7mad;Ravens has a new shirt for purchase. You can get the “Rags” shirt in five different styles and two different version of that style. It also has 3 different sizes for your avatar so you should be able to find just the right fit for your desired body choice but just in case try the demo if you are unsure; the best way you could go!

Lastly at the Modulus store you can pick up the Esteban skin which comes with both a brow base as well as a body shaper to make it look its very best; it comes in Bronze, Nude, Olive, and Tan. As with just about all of the skins made by Modulus, this has an option for just the face without brows while using your own. You can use the ones built in as an option and can also have facial hair by itself or all in one for a full look. Choose which one is best for you but there is truly no wrong way. For those of you who own a [SIGNATURE] Gianni Mesh Head, there is also a version of this skin as well at the Signature Event!

Now that you have all this information it’s time to leave you transportation to get to the stores and events currently featured in this post. As always…until next time, stay stylish fellas.

For those of you who are unaware, the February edition of the SwagBag is going to be the last one. Luckily for those of you who were wanting to get some of the past boxes or have yet to get this month’s box you can go to their headquarters until the 6th of March and pick up any of the SwagBags for $2000. I’ve enjoyed receiving these boxes and I am a bit sad about them not continuing on but at least some really cool ideas and items came from them.

Inside the February SwagBag are two different pose sets from Come Soon Poses that feature boxing themes, one a singles pose set and the other made for couples. The gym backdrop is included and it’s just one of another well made releases from Come Soon. I enjoy their work and thought of an idea for using it and was finally able to put visuals to it.

Modulus is a contributor to the February round of Shiny Shabby with the “Ty” skin. This is a little bit different from their previous releases as there are three new different tones that have been added to the ones we already know. New to the brand are the Almond, Caramel, and Espresso tones and also have separate Omega or Signature appliers for the body. When I first saw the ad for this I thought it looked exactly like Tyrese Gibson but I’ve found out from a very good source that it was actually model/actor Tyson Beckford who the skin was designed after. Either way, it is surely a great looking skin.

I also picked up a few things to complete my boxing look, the INHUMANE shorts from BLACKX come in 5 different colors and to go with the next item I purchased from the marketplace I went with white.

Every boxer (no matter if it is professional or otherwise) needs to tape up their hands. There are not very many out there on for purchase that will work for Omega or [SIGNATURE] and that is what lead me to the MP. I picked up the white version of Mel Essence’s “Short Hand Wraps” They come in 3 different opacities (Light, Normal, and Dark).

It’s time for me to put the “wraps” on this entry so I will leave you with the credits and the transportation to get there so I can get to work on “knocking out” another entry. Sorry, couldn’t help myself.

As always, until next time…stay stylish fellas.

post340_01 post340_02

I hope everyone had a great weekend, yeah I know it’s already Tuesday but it still isn’t past the point where you can think about the previous weekend…at least in my mind anyway.

For this current entry I thought I’d do a little relaxing with some light reading and a beverage. And I achieved just that with a little help from Image Essentials and their pose/prop that is exclusively at The Hipster Fair right now. The “Coffee Sophisticate” comes with a chair prop and also comes with a cup of coffee and a magazine that you can wear while in the pose; I also think that is well made and while you can adjust the pose, it was perfect right out of the box for me.

Modulus also has a new release at their mainstore that is worth checking out. “Damien” comes with beard and eyebrow styles together or individually. You can also use your own favorite eyebrow appliers and beards if you want to. You can choose from 5 different skin tones as well to find which one best suits you.

One of my most favorite eye creators, MESANGE, has a new set that is currently for sale at the APPLIQUE event. The “Capriccio Eyes” are very stunning and come in 15 different iris colors. If you’re not familiar with this brand from my previous entries, each single pack comes with a standard pair of eyes, a mesh pair, and also a HUD to change both the mesh set and also omega appliers for those who have those type of eyes. If you purchase the full set, the HUD also includes appliers for Genesis Lab eyes.

I have more new items from events coming up in the entries ahead so I will leave you with some taxi’s/limo’s whatever you choose to call them to pick up any of the items you see that I’m wearing or posing with. Also if you want a cool place to visit and relax, check out “Nouvelles Adventures” which you can find a ride to below.

Until next time, stay stylish fellas!
