[#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.

[#478] Mister Lover Lover

Give me your digits, jot down your address
I’ll bet you confess
When you put me to the test

Shaggy, ♫Boombastic♫

With spring not quite yet being spring, I thought I would brighten up these pages with a little sunshine type inspiration and I know that I’ve achieved that with the help of the newest creation from Bakaboo. The “Summer Coat” and “Signature Pants” that have just recently hit the racks at On9 are just the thing that will kick those weather related feelings out the door.

Ocean Blackthorne has a command of unique design and color combinations which is what I admire most about his creations. I know that when I put them on I feel a bit more energetic and pumped up. The suit jacket and pants are sold separately and come in three colorways (Ocean, Sunrise which I am wearing, and Sunset) and are standard sizes XS-XL which with the right alpha cuts will work with any body (unless you are built like a tank).

Choosing which set I was to wear was simpler than I could have ever imagined as I know that most people would pick either Ocean or Sunset (blue and red based respectively) but I really had my eyes set on Sunrise (which is a golden yellow base) because it just brightened the whole idea of what I was going for a look and doing my best to be ethnically diverse (and hopefully I didn’t fail at it).

The Pose Fair is still going strong and as an official blogger one of the things I like is that they want us to focus not just on the brands that are sponsoring the event but also the pose stores that you may or may not have heard of and draw attention to them as well which it is my pleasure that as a first for me I am using a pose from the “Classic Male” set by Mouni Poses. There are 6 poses in the set that would definitely make for good photography whether it be a part of a scene or if you are just shooting a profile picture, you can’t go wrong either way.

With the way I am posing you can definitely see that this guy is a true love machine (I couldn’t think of anything better and I thought that might get a laugh out of those who know me so what the heck right?)

On social media I’ve been hyping up wanting to go to the NEO Japan event which is in it’s final week of its very first round; I hope that it is doing well enough that we see another one. I have yet to go there but I will be doing so over the next few days to get my retail on but before I do that I wanted to make sure that I was able to show one of the latest Modulus hairs off.

“Alik” is a hair that feels as though it’s got a bit of product in it to get it to stand up just right and has just a bit of fly-away tufts at the temple area. The style of hair gave me the idea for doing an Asian style look that I feel like I have seen on perhaps a pop star or a celebrity of some sort and that was the mindset that I was working with as I started to build an idea.

For those not familiar with the Modulus brand (and I hope you would be by now because they are a part of many big events and continue to be added to more), there are 25 colors of hair within 5 different color HUDS, and you can get them all together which saves you some dollars if you can’t quite pick a color. On top of that each color HUD has integrated tinting as well to give you even more choices.

Lately when it comes to my face and skin I haven’t really changed it much (a departure from how I did things in the past as I would buy skins like they were going out of style). I found myself and a skin that I felt I was more like what I felt represented me (aside from blogging brand partner skins which is never an issue because I enjoy them and challenging myself to make great visuals with them). For this blog entry as I previously said I decided to go with an Asian flair and to aid me with that is the creator of my nearly every day face, LV Designs.

“Shin” is a face I would consider to be somewhere in the middle of the road, not overly masculine but not overly effeminate either and goes along with Stray Dog’s 01 body tone (for those of you who like to do that matching thing y’know). It is for CATWA heads (Daniel in particular even though I would have expected it to work better on Dino but I didn’t like how it looked) and has a brow and no brows option for those of you who may have a favorite type of eyebrow that you do not want to give up.

To top things off I also found myself strolling through the Shoetopia event which had a lesser male presence then I would have liked (note to creators…dudes by shoes too, especially this one) but I did find at least one silver lining…

Deadwool released a new pair of dress shoes for the event and I could not resist even though I tried with all my might not to leave there with the FATPACK but the little voice inside of me won out in the end and honestly I’m glad I did because there are so many different options and ways to color your shoes that you can wear any kind of suit and match these up with them and the best part is you don’t have to worry about socks because they are built in and can be turned on and off.

The Deadwool oxfords are fitted for Belleza, Signature (Geralt, Gianni) and SLink, there is also a fit for Maitreya for the gals out there; and an unrigged version for those who have bodies that I have not listed (but definitely try the demo out before you fork over any moolah).

We’ve reached that part of the blog where I lead you to the credits so that you can get your shop on and enjoy the rest of your day or evening whichever the case may be. I still have plenty of things I want to share so it will likely be back to the lab (which is either my platform or my kitchen depending on how things go haha). While you are at it, go check out Seraphim and see what events are going and make a day of shopping with friends or family and it’s Friday so there’s always FLF!!!

Until our paths cross again, onto the next conversation…
