[#556] O’ Christmas Tree

How lovely are your branches

Billy Idol, ♫O Christmas Tree

Ideas tend to lead us places that we may not intend to go and that’s where I am finding myself with this blog entry. I was hoping to stray away from the winter scenery for a little longer but it just so happened that the “Lance Pose Set w/Props” from Animosity just came out at the Access event. I couldn’t help it but roam the wonderland known as Mesmeric Cove once again and depict myself getting a Christmas Tree instead of putting up one of those fake ones (gonna regret the needles though I bet).

I like that this pose set comes with the mesh tree and saw props which along with the bento poses make this a really nice set even if I’m not the biggest champion of holiday stuff this surely put a smile upon my face and helped me take a creative photo as well as a closeup.

Animosity Lance Pose Set w/Props features:

  • Bento enable poses (Bento capable viewer needed to use properly)
  • Mesh Tree and Saw props included for each applicable pose
  • 5 poses included (3 with alternate versions)
  • Exclusively @ Access until January 7th

Staying with the Access event, the really neat hat and hair I have on is from Modulus and is the “Lewis Hat & Hair”. I am very much a hat wearing person a lot of the time in the real world and have been for most of my teen years and adult life and the one thing about this product is that I tend to wear my caps backwards which is how this is styled. One thing I can tell you is that when I was growing up it was almost sort of frowned upon to wear it that way as it was inferred that you were a gang member but gladly that type of thinking went away because it’s hard for me to wear it the normal way now.

Modulus has quality products and I’ve said this many times but the truth is that the brand just keeps getting better and I think that the mesh cap for this hair is even better then the last cap that was created which truly shows that care is put into making these and just like with anyone in a chosen profession when you keep striving for excellence there’s nothing stopping you.

Modulus Lewis Hat & Hair features:

  • 100% Nex-Gen Alpha Mesh Hair and Hat
  • Hat texture HUD is included
  • 5 color packs + integrated color tinting
  • 40 color FATPACK option also available
  • Exclusively @ Access until January 7th

My wardrobe consists of the “Route 66” jacket/sweatshirt/flannel combination (aka the Canadian Tuxedo as I’ve been told) along with the “Distressed Jeans B” from HEVO. I figured these were a great look for someone cutting down a tree in a Paul Bunyon modern day scenario. Of course I don’t have a blue ox named Babe or any of that cool stuff but I think my overall look is good and hope others agree that it fits.

Now that I’ve done another outdoors pic, if I end up doing another one soon it probably won’t be as bad as I’ve made it out to be. Once ideas start to filter through I figure why let them go to waste and if I’m feeling creative then it will make for hopefully something magical. There are a lot of winter sims out there that I’ve likely not even found yet that have photographic spots that are a sight to behold and that I will want to capture.

Perhaps though it is time for me to put this entry to rest and consider what to do with the next one as this month is likely going to pick up very, very, soon with the events that I am part of and something new that’s on the horizon. I feel like 2018 has been the start of something fantastic for this website and blog and for my creativity and skills. It’s truly a great thing to be able to do this at the level I can do it at and for those that follow either out in the open or off in the distance a ways it is that appreciation that keeps me passionate.

[#555] Calling You

And I feel like I can fly when I stand next to you
So while I’m on this phone
A hundred miles from home
I’ll take the words you gave me and send them back to you

Blue October, ♫Calling You

As I said in the last blog I would likely not be posting another winter themed pic but that almost became a misspoken truth as I was wandering around and found a spot or two that I could have done something with but I don’t want to exhaust that well too quickly (least of all not in December already). I’ve once again found a nice spot within the I Am (SL) Amsterdam sim and got to make friends with a kitty (well of course logically that didn’t happen) and came away with a great pair of photos to put into this blog post.

I was a bit worried that with my outfit I wouldn’t be able to come up with a song to work as the soundtrack but with how everything work out I decided on “Calling You” by Blue October for two reasons: the first being that I felt my facial look was a tad like Justin Furstenfeld and the second was the words of the song have a meaning to me personally. I can see how it applies to the way I feel about my special someone and when your gut tells you to go on something you do it.

Man Cave ends tonight and I have a few items from the event that I think are really great and worth checking out before they head to their respective brands main store locations.

I’ll start out with the “Chase Hair” by Modulus not only because they are one of my brands but also most of the time I like to start from top to bottom when writing about products. This is a mid length release with some locks cascading in the front of the face (and there are left and right versions included to choose the best side to photograph from or the best way to make it realistic). I thought this really went well with the kind of grunge look I was going for (and I go to this style more often then not).

Modulus Chase Hair features:

  • 100% original nex-gen alpha mesh
  • Mirrored left or right versions
  • 5 color HUD options + integrated tinting
  • Fatpack with all 40 colors also available
  • Exclusively @ Man Cave until December 9th

The other item from the event is the “Jersey” shirt collaboration from TonkTastic and Hermony. You’ll recall that the first batch of designs were a part of the November round of The Men’s Department which I previously blogged but for the Man Cave a new crop of fun designs have been added which can be put together by the HUD that comes with any of the shirts packs.

I am wearing the Broccozilla shirt because it tickled my funny bone and clearly was a fun design (and also reminded me a little of Groot from Guardians Of The Galaxy). I’ve said plenty of times before that when these two brands get together that magic happens and that is true because of all the releases that I currently own from them I find a way to put them into later blog entries or just wear them when I’m not in blog mode.

TonkTastic and Hermony Jersey Shirt (Man Cave) features:

  • Original mesh
  • 24 more designs to add to the original set of shirts
  • Fitted sizes for Aesthetic, Belleza (Jake), Signature (Geralt & Gianni), SLink Physiqe and TMP male bodies
  • Exclusively @ Man Cave until December 9th

It feels like a better time than any to get this blog posted so that anyone who wants to sneak into the Man Cave event before it closes can do so and take a look at some really great items that are for sure worth being brought into a respective wardrobe and also homes (for those decor items that are must haves). A new week has started which means that it is time for me to start thinking about what to do next for this site.

Also I’m still trying to figure out how to get better at ending blogs but until then I will just have to suck it up with the realization that it isn’t a strong suit of mine. Hopefully this week is filled with great events, shopping and good times across the grid and I will be back again soon with the next conversation.

[#552] You’ll See It All

Barrel deep into the night
‘Til you leave the center of the show behind
And the great white peaks of new islands rise
You’ll see it all, you’ll see it all

Barns Courtney, ♫Goodbye John Smith

This blog was something I knew I wanted to write but I wasn’t sure how at first. It’s a dedication in two parts: one to someone I did not really know but felt like I did and one that I knew very well. Memorials are always tough because you’re drawing from emotions that come from deep within you but once words are on paper or typed through a keyboard it tends to be a freeing feeling.

Five years ago today, actor and humanitarian Paul Walker tragically died in a car crash. Celebrities are always put on a pedestal by their fans even if they are not the best people but I feel with Paul that was justified because what you saw is what you got with him and he had a good heart regardless of the talent he possessed. Even though I did not know him nor did I ever meet him his death was truly hard for me because of the joy he brought to my life through his work and I tend not to get overly emotional about things like this but even with all the time that has passed, it still hurts to think about and watch things with him in it or documentaries.

One thing that I’ve taken from this and from learning about who he was outside of the fame that he wasn’t necessarily comfortable with is that being a good and kind person costs nothing and it takes no effort at all to be better not only for yourself but for all the people around you; if I had a glass of anything at all I’d toast to his memory.

November 2018 marks the second anniversary of the passing of one of my virtual best friends, she’d probably give me some crap because she never wanted anyone to make a big deal or fuss about her but she was a one of several people that I stuck around the grid and also one of my biggest support systems. When I got my start I was a teenage avatar and she helped me with figuring out the ropes of what it meant to be one since my real teen years weren’t all that enjoyable.

She encouraged me to find a family to be a part of and even though I had reservations about it at first I took the leap and the two wonderful people that became my virtual parents are still today and I wouldn’t change that for all the King’s gold. She also encouraged me to enroll into school so that I could attend classes with her and I figured I didn’t have anything to lose; it isn’t until now that I realized it was something that was meant to happen and where I was supposed to be.

It is at the school where I met my wife and if you asked her she kinda knew that we would have wound up on this road even back then.

Fondly I look back on the exploring my best friend and I did and the crazy games of Greedy we played and talks about our favorite things like movies and books and even her taste in music which even though it was much different in some instances as mine it was always still a good time. Even today whenever I see anything about the Wizard of Oz it brings me back to an easier time.

Abby, thank you for the friendship and the belief that I was a better person than even I thought I could be…I miss you and I’m sure we’ll get to pick on one another again someday.


Usually I do not section off my blogs from the beginning to the information about what I’m wearing but I felt like there needed to be a break between the bit of emotion that took part in that section. The song I chose for this blog from the moment I heard it was meaningful and was even more so after I looked up what it was about…which is essentially losing someone close to you and how it kind of rocks your world in some form.

In the picture frame I chose one of my favorite pictures of Paul Walker as I didn’t really have very many good ones or even anything recent of Abby but I’m sure there will be a time when I come across something and do another blog to honor her.

The cap and hair I am wearing is the “Shelby Hat and Hair” from Modulus that recently dropped at the current round of Uber. I love this style of hat because of how vintage it is and I knew that it fit with the rest of my look. Word on the street that is patterned after a character from the show “Peaky Blinders” which I’ve never seen but I’ve got it on my list of “things to watch when I’ve watched everything before it”. I’m sure it’s good as it has Cillian Murphy in it (he played Scarecrow in The Dark Knight Trilogy).

With the different colors/fabrics that the cap can be changed with via the included HUD it allows the ability to coordinate with just about any outfit. Another bonus is a standalone version of the cap is also included in the package so it can be warn without the hair which I think is great.

Modulus Shelby Hat & Hair features:

  • 100% alpha hair ‘next gen’ mesh
  • 5 Colour HUDs options + integrated tinting HUDs
  • Texture HUD for hat
  • Hat only option
  • Or the fatpack with all 40 colours
  • Exclusively @ Uber until December 23rd

The suit I am wearing is an exclusive version of the “Gage Premium Tuxedo” by L&B Swear but is the “Pinstripe Edition” which has 5 suit colors with pinstripes (including one with a black lapel just like the original Gage tux offers). What’s even more awesome is that you can use your HUD from the original tux and have added colors for the waistcoat, shirt, tie, and pocket square for even more options to go with.

I know that it is considered to be a tuxedo but in my mind if you don’t use the black lapel version it’s more like a suit because of the regular tie (I feel tuxedo’s having bowties are what set them apart from being more than just a suit). Another thing I thought of about this is that the look also makes me look sort of like a gangster from the 40’s (or at least that is what my friend Lucky said at least).

L&B Swear Gage Pinstripe Edition Tuxedo features:

  • Original mesh
  • HUD allows changeable Jacket, waistcoat, shirt, tie, pocket square, pants and belt)
  • Option to disable belt is also included in HUD
  • Original Gage Tuxedo HUD can be used to change Waistcoat, shirt, tie, and pocket square)
  • Fitted Sizes for Belleza (Jake), Signature (Geralt, Gianni), SLink Physique mesh bodies and Classic fitmesh
  • Available now @ L&B Swear main location

Now feels as good a time as any to wrap up this blog entry as to me I feel like I covered everything that I wanted to and also the amount of emotional energy that it took to write the beginning is starting to set in and I don’t regret opening up as I don’t usually do that. I know that some appreciate reading more than just credits and I try to at least offer more than just a picture and where to find things as there is a bit of a void where that is concerned.

During this time of year it seems like I tend to do more raw feeling type stuff that has more emotion to it because blogging is not only just something fun (or just a hobby) it’s one of those things that helps me get things off my mind or things I’ve repressed because I tend to be more inward. It’s hard to ask people to understand it really and I don’t really consider myself lesser of a person because everyone has their things they deal with; I just find a way to use it to my advantage.

Soon enough I may even try doing some winter pics or possibly even ones that deal with that thing that happens towards the end of December (yeah that thing). Until the next time I post I’ll be off in search of the next conversation and to anyone who actually took the time to read this entire entry you have my sincerest gratitude.

[#550] Love You To Death

Those lips move, yeah I can feel what you’re sayin’, prayin’
They say the beast inside of me is gonna get ya, get ya, yeah…

Starset, ♫Love You To Death
(Originally by Type O Negative)

I want to start out this entry by wishing everyone who comes across this in the next day or so Happy Thanksgiving. This year has had its share of ups and downs but the one thing that remains for me is that I am thankful for all the good things and people that have come into and have already been a part of my life. This is the easiest part of the year to express that gratitude because it just flows into the air.

While most of my US based friends and family are celebrating today, I also am thankful for my people all across the world which includes places such as Canada, Denmark, England, the Netherlands, New Zealand, the Philippines, Scotland and some places I might have forgotten. It makes no difference where someone is from but it is the feeling of comraderie that makes everything feel right.

Most people are probably eating Turkey today (myself included) and I know that I said that I wouldn’t likely do any more vampire themed photos this year but I was wrong and what better than on the biggest day of consumption that I post one because after all…vampires are hungry too! The look I chose combined with other elements such as the effects on my lips to the pose and backdrop, I was inspired along with the suggestion my wife made about the song choice (thank you for that B!)

I‘ll start with the lip effects that I have on which is the “Dropy Lips” applier by Go&See. Of course the original color is red that I used because I am doing a vampire photo but it comes with different colors so that your lips have the appearance of just about any kind of liquid dripping from them (perhaps ink or alien blood?)

This applier is really the perfect start to putting together a scene featuring a creature of the night (which goes along with my binging of The Vampire Diaries as well).

Go&See Dropy Lips applier features:

  • Applier HUD for CATWA, Genus Project, LeLutka and Omega (Sold Separately)
  • 8 colors to choose from in each applier HUD
  • Available now @ the Go&See in-world store and marketplace

The Level event has a few days left and I want to focus on the “Nathan” hair by Modulus. It’s a short style that has a spiked feel to it but it’s not aggressively so that the hair sticks straight up because there’s so much mousse in it to choke a horse. It has that vampire feel to it as it is somewhat reminiscent of either Edward Cullen (Twilight) or Stefan Salvatore (The Vampire Diaries).

As far as styling myself to have that kind of dreamy vampire look I think I handled it well and I don’t feel like there were any complaints from my wife.

Modulus Nathan Hair features:

  • Original ‘Nex-Gen’ Alpha Mesh
  • 5 color HUD packs available
  • 40 color FATPACK also available
  • Mirrored left and right versions included
  • Exclusively @ the Level Event until November 25th

Man Cave is hot for the month of November and for the first time in their lineup the unique style of Bakaboo graces the event. I’m really excited to see this brand here because it is a big event and more people should become familiar with what Ocean Blackthorne does as his sense of colorful style and designs really brighten up fashion (in my opinion of course).

The “Chris Vest” is a shirt/vest combination that has lots of different choices between the two different color shirts to the 3 different pattern HUDs for the vest. There is a style for just about anyone and I chose to have more of a subtle and minimalistic approach by going more monochrome with the vest. I usually choose vibrant colors in the outfits made by this brand but I felt this was the way to go.

Bakaboo Chris Vest features:

  • Original Mesh
  • 3 different pattern HUDs with 5 colors each (Sold separately)
  • White or black shirt option in each HUD
  • Simple basic pants included
  • Fitted sizes for Belleza (Jake), Signature (Gianni) and SLink Physiqe mesh bodies
  • Exclusively @ Man Cave until December 9th!

The glue that brings this together is the “Wicked Hunger” pose from Image Essentials and while this is not a brand new release it is one that I’ve wanted to blog for a while and thought that with all these other elements in play that no time was better than the current. My wife happily agreed to pose with me and I think that it turned out great (that may sound biased but I believe it to be true).

With the help of the LeLutka Face HUD which works just as great with CATWA heads as it does their own branded heads, I was able to raise my eyebrows and make a vampire face with ease. I also made use of the CATWA teeth add-on that is available at their store and has many options to create a similar vampire look or different ones based on other creatures with teeth.

Image Essentials Wicked Hunger Pose features:

  • Bento enabled couples pose (Bento viewer required for proper use)
  • Modifiable to be able to adjust and compensate for avatar compatibilty
  • Available now at the Image Essentials in-world location

This was one of the bigger blogs I’ve had lately and have included both mine and my wife’s credits so if there is any part of her look that someone finds appealing they can easily find it on the grid. She is wearing the “Yvonne Dress” from ViSion that is exclusively a part of Collabor88 for the November round. The backdrop we have behind us is the “Salem Street” backdrop by Paparazzi which helps add to the overall mood of the scene.

I’ve enjoyed being able to bring you something new on a day that celebrates being thankful and I am also thankful for anyone who has ever visited this site, left a comment, faved a post or has found something they liked because I wore it or had it as a part of my scene. This is how I will leave this to go enjoy time with those who mean the most to me and may all be well with the visitors of this website until the next conversation.

[#548] Twistin’ The Night Away

Let me tell you ’bout a place
Somewhere up-a New York way
Where the people are so gay
Twistin’ the night away
Here they have a lot of fun
Puttin’ trouble on the run
Man, you find the old and young
Twistin’ the night away

Sam Cooke, ♫Twistin The Night Away

My taste in music is a broad range that includes a wide variety of genre’s and extends from what is current to many tunes from the past. I decided that combine a look that is fitting today with a song from way back. Sam Cooke had many songs that are still highly regarded today but one that sticks out in my mind is “Twistin’ The Night Away” because once you hear it you can’t help but want to move because it gives you such wonderful vibes.

Admittedly I’ve been a bit behind with responsibilities blogging for Bakaboo and I truly love the work that Ocean does with his creations. To me I feel like I need to be in a certain mood to come up with something creative and fitting for these styles because something ordinary and plain will just not do. Hopefully though I will be able to step forward and give these items the proper care they deserve.

For the look I have in this entry are the “Max” jacket and pants (though to me they are more like shorts as they do not go to the ankle). I think it is neat that with the jacket there is are cutouts on both the front and back with mesh to see through to your skin along with an ample amount of colors to choose from. The pants themselves have the same colors/patterns to match the jacket but if you want to be daring you can mix them up as well.

There is an ultimate edition available where you get the pattern on the jacket I am wearing which if it were me seeing this on another site it would convince me more to look into getting the special edition just for that because it cannot be found anywhere else.

Bakaboo Max (Jacket & Pants) features:

  • Original Mesh
  • 10 colors (5 plain, 5 with design) for both Jacket and Pants
  • Ultimate Edition has HUDs for Jacket, Pants and also to change just the back of the jacket)
  • Exclusive design for Ultimate Editions
  • Fitted for Aesthetic, Belleza (Jake), Signature (Geralt, Gianni), SLink Physique, Standard Sizes and Tweenster
  • Currently for sale at the Bakaboo in-world location

So many different types of items can be found at the Access event (the Rue pose set from WRONG is making another appearance here) and I’m featuring one of the latest hairs from Modulus in the “Lucian Hair”. It’s a bowl type style that is still popular today as it was in the 90’s where I saw quite a few guys rocking it. I myself even might have had it styled this way once but I went through a lot of stages back then and nowadays I’m a low to no maintenance type of hair guy.

It’s not often that with a hair I go with a straight white without coloring it but I wanted to try something more out of my normal (which I’ve only done plain white less times then the fingers on one hand). With the clothing style of Bakaboo it made sense to go with a non-traditional hair color.

This is definitely a hair release I expect to see guys out there wearing proudly.

Modulus Lucian Hair features:

  • Original “Nex-Gen” Alpha Mesh
  • 5 Color Pack HUDs to choose from + integrated color picker
  • 40 color FATPACK also for sale
  • Mirrored left or right hairs included
  • Exclusively available @ Access until December 07th

I‘ve done plenty of on location photos lately but there are several great backdrops that I want to catch up on from Paparazzi including the one you see in today’s blog. “The Aquarium Room” is kind of like one of those you see in a fancy house with a furnished basement with a huge fish tank and the cool part is that not only do you get the backdrop itself but also the 3 different types of fish and 2 different types of starfish.

This fish tank may seem a little sad as there are only three fish in it but I knew if I started putting out a whole bunch of fish it would get out of hand and I wanted to make sure that at least one of each kind was visible. One of them I’d like to say is patterned after a forgetful cartoon fish (yeah you know the one…I think).

Also I found out that there was a new update to the LeLutka “Andrea” head so I took a trip to the store to grab the latest version and there is a new look HUD with some fancy new features and animations. One of the features I though was interesting was the ability to reroute things like beards and hairbases. It’s all there in the manual and I’m sure I’ll get through it all eventually but also wanted to anyone out there who had not heard about it that owns this head.

Any kind of update for something such as a head or a body or even a skin is always worth getting so that you have the latest and best version available…because after all you paid for it!

Hate to say it but I think time is up for this entry but don’t worry I’ll be back again before too long with something fun and new with my take on it. For anyone that’s dealing with winter’s fun cruel joke I’m right there with you. Be safe and stay warm until I’m back with a new conversations but until then I’m going to run off to twist the night away!

[#546] Habits

I eat my dinner in my bathtub
Then I go to sex clubs
Watching freaky people gettin’ it on
It doesn’t make me nervous
If anything I’m restless
Yeah, I’ve been around and I’ve seen it all

Our Last Night, ♫Habits
(Originally by Tove Lo)

I‘m fairly certain that just about everyone has someone in their life that they miss either from the past or the present (even though it’s usually better for it to be present as the past can be messy at best). My interpretation of “Habits” is a little different than the actual song depicts as I’m not a drug induced sex maniac missing their ex.

For me it’s more about just missing someone very deeply and also I have a pretty cool bathroom and bathtub that works out well with verses in the song.

Another thing I don’t often do is show a whole lot of skin but because I had picked up the “Tommy” towel from NOCHE in a previous round of Equal10 that I’d just go for the gold and see what I could come up with (and also it helped me feature the tattoo I have on). When I opened the package for the towel I was oddly impressed that it came with the regular towel along with a version where you are basically holding it open allowing for a view of the full monty and that is something I wouldn’t show regardless if there were anyone wanting to see it.

The towel also includes a HUD with a ton of different color options which I didn’t get fancy with because with the atmosphere I had going on a wild color wouldn’t have worked out well and while I am wearing the version for the Signature (Gianni) body it also includes a Belleza (Jake) size as well.

MooLoo has been around for a few months now and are a part of this round of The Men Jail with their “Cowboys & Indians” tattoo. It sticks to the theme having different depictions of things that would be associated with both cowboys and indians as the theme. Tattoos over the last couple years have been mix and match of different things thrown together but create meaningful tattoos and that is also what I’m seeing here.

The thing I like about the HUDs that are included (Black & Color in both fresh and faded) is that in them they have multiple ways to apply them (Belleza, Signature, SLink etc) all in one easy to use HUD. That is something that I don’t see often with tattoos as usually each specific type of applier has it’s own so excellent job to streamline and make putting them on easier.

MooLoo Cowboys & Indians Tattoo features:

  • 4 Appllier HUDs (Color/Fresh, Black/Fresh + Color/Faded, Black/Faded)
  • Appliers for Belleza, Omega, Maitreya, Signature and SLink
  • Exclusively @ The Men Jail until November 28th

As one of my blogger brands. I am consistently happy with the hair releases that Modulus puts out and I try to blog everything I can but I put priority on using the things I know will fit a scene I’ve built in my head first. In real life I probably wouldn’t grow or style my hair this way because I personally don’t like anything in my face (hair mostly though) but the virtual me loves it and that is because I don’t have to worry about styling or feeling it.

“Lee” is the latest addition to the brand’s hair collection that I would consider messy as quite a bit of it hangs in the front which I think for the type of photo I was doing it worked perfectly as I used the mirrored version that moved in the direction that my body was in the pose I chose. I am hoping that more messy styles come as future releases because I think I could work a few scenes out with that style.

Modulus Lee Hair features:

  • Original “Nex-Gen” Alpha Mesh
  • 5 color HUD options + integrated color picker
  • Mirrored left and right versions

As I come to the conclusion of this blog post I think that sometimes doing things you normally don’t do have a way of paying off (potentially speaking) and if showing a little bit more than usual is a way to express myself differently it’s an avenue that I could give more though on in the future. I’m more of a reserved kind of guy but “letting loose” as it’s said can be freeing too.

There are some great products to be featured in the next few installments that I’m looking forward to seeing what I can do with them visually. November may pale in comparison in productivity but I do hope that I can continue to stay motivated like I have been this week to see to it that everything I want to post finds its way here.

It’s been my pleasure and I will be back soon with another conversation but until then be well.

[#544] Waking Lions

Is this better, tell me there’s a better way
I’m not afraid, I’m not gonna hide from the
Vultures above, serpents below
They wanna lay me to rest, but I won’t go
Yeah

Pop Evil, ♫Waking The Lions

Often enough I get these ideas in my head for photos but I don’t always take them right when it comes to me; I think the reason is because there is something that I might not have for a style or it is just timing but when the moment hits when I know it’s time to take the photo I don’t hesitate otherwise I could lose it for good.

Losing ideas when it takes enough time to create them is bad in this line of work (though it’s not really work it feels more like professional fun without getting paid).

For the blog post today I wanted to share a positive message and along with the song “Waking Lions” by Pop Evil that is sure to be felt if you follow the link at the top to give it a listen (hopefully it is available in as many countries as possible). The message being that there are lots of times when we feel down to the point where maybe getting up is no longer worth it but believe me it is worth it and becoming stronger and finding your inner lion to take on the challenges in front of you can make the difference not only for yourself but others around you.

It’s a principle I know that I try to follow every day as much as I possibly can.

The Man Cave event ended earlier than I expected or remembered so I just missed being able to feature the “Vincent Hair” from Modulus for the event. The style is a predominantly combed back hair with a few locks falling forward on either the right or the left side of the face (depending on which version you wear). I am wearing it on the left side as that is more to where my body is leaning in the photo.

Once again I’m wearing a lighter color and with the help of the lighting (via the windlight I chose) is helping it take on some cool highlighting which I find turned out really well as a result.

This hair is available at the Modulus in-world store and will be coming soon their marketplace.

Modulus Vincent Hair features:

  • 100% Alpha Hair ‘Next Gen’ mesh
  • Mirrored left and right versions included
  • 5 Cold HUD options + integrated color tinting
  • FATPACK also available with all 40 colors
  • Available @ the Modulus In-World Location

After a bit of a hiatus, Hermony is back not only with one product by himself but a collaboration with TonkTastic at this months TMD. While I will be covering the collab soon, this time I’m featuring the “Eyes of The Beholder” eye set which is probably one of my most favorite eye releases in recent times. There are a lot of different iris colors to choose from and these eyes work with both the CATWA eyes that come rigged with your head (with the help of a button on the applier HUD) or the unrigged eyes you can get from the CATWA store itself.

It gives you the option also for both regular eyes and also “stoned” eyes or you can also refer to them as bloodshot eyes which can also come from other things besides partaking in a puff or two. You could definitely go through a night of liquid encouragement to wind up with eyes like that as well as lack of sleep too but it’s a nice added touch personally.

If you want a demonstration on how these eyes work please visit this instructional video HERE!

Hermony Eyes of The Beholder features:

  • Applier HUDs for CATWA + Genus Project
  • Mesh eyeballs also included
  • 18 color iris’ to choose from (#3 featured)
  • Clear or stoned versions included
  • Colors sold separately or as a FATPACK (discounted for event)
  • Exclusively @ TMD until November 30th!

Looks like that should about do it for this blog post as I mentioned last time I’d try to keep it as linear as I possibly could to avoid boring anyone who might stop by. There’s definitely more things coming up that I look forward to featuring in blogs that I hope others will like as well. To give an idea of what is coming up there’s more from Hermony & TonkTastic as I spoke about above as well as more Modulus hair from totally recent events as well as some more new gear from Native Urban and Bakaboo just to mention a few.

Time for me to move on to the next conversation…
