[#388] I Start Changing With Everything Around Me

I’m walking wires
Over a train crash
I’m holding on
And you, you make me useless
You left me senseless
You lead me on

Brush It Off” – Plan ThreeListen

I know it’s been a bit longer than I would have liked between my last posting and this one but things out in the real world seemed to have grabbed hold a little tight as they have been as of late but I still have the desire to bring you great visuals with style and fashion. In this entry I am bringing you a few Marketplace items and giving you a quick look at Summerfest ’17 before it ends on the 20th, as well as newer events such as the Hipster Men’s Event and returning for a new round: The Epiphany. Time to give you the dish on what I’m wearing in this look!


HAIR⊱ Exile – Walking the Wire ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Summerfest ’17

Exile is one of the few hair stores that rarely if ever disappointment me and their item for this years Summerfest is no exception. The fact that the name aligned with the idea of what I wanted to do with my visuals makes it that much better. A nicely combed back look is very handsome and well kept. You have a little bit of time left before the beach closes for the year at Summerfest ’17. It runs until the 20th of July so make a mad dash if you haven’t already been there to get your fix.

HEADCATWA – Shaheen (Bento) ♯ ☆NEW
EYESGo&See * Land *
FACE⊱ ::LV:. Nathan – Pearl/02 ♯ Marketplace
BEARDNivaro – Rough
BODYBelleza – Jake
SHAPE⊱ HF – Shape Edward ♯ Marketplace

SHIRT⊱ ExalteD – T-Shirt Jersey {Blue} ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Hipster Men’s Event

One of the reasons I like this item is that it’s a well made sports shirt that isn’t trying to be fancy with crazy colors or designs. It’s simple and the kind you would wear when you’re relaxing on the weekend. It’s fitted for the popular mesh bodies which means just about any guy out there on the grid can wear it and look stylish and cool.

JEANS⊱ M.NA: Meraki ♯ Marketplace

These jeans were a part of a past event but like some items seemed to have gotten set aside in my closet for the right moment. While there is not a main store for Mirage NA in-world, they do have this item up on the Marketplace. It’s a small growing store but I hope to see more from them in the future. Sizes included are Signature, SLink, and TMP but with the use of alphas, I was able to make it work for the Belleza body as well without issue. These jeans also have a special use but I’ll leave that for you to discover on your own if you choose to look into this product further.

SHOES⊱ -NOeditiON- SuperStar (SLink M) Blue COMMON ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ The Epiphany

That time is once again upon us, the magic of The Epiphany is back to enchant our wallets. What I like about this event is that unlike most Gacha events that you play a machine a billion times just to get one little item and are left with a bazillion extras, you can turn those in for prizes that you can only get while the event is running. NOeditOn is offering a slick sneaker based off of one of the most classic shoes of all time. The SuperStar sneakers are offered in sizes for the ladies and for Signature and SLink for the fellas. There are 15 different colors you can with with chance to also win the white “Classic” and one that has a HUD to change the shoe with all the colors available in the set along with black which are both the RARE items in the machine. I really love these sneakers and they are definitely for that laid back casual guy.


. Infiniti . – Walk the Line (02) ♯ Marketplace

The cherry on top of the sundae for this entry. It helps create a visual within one of the lyrics of the song chosen to be the theme of the entry. It comes with a pose prop of wires but also has the singles poses included so you can use it freely with any setting you choose. Very well put together which makes me extremely happy I found it to be able to use in this visual.

Coming up in the some of my future postings will be coverage of a really cool event called Indie Teepee which starts on the 21st of July as well as the most current round of Men Only Monthly on the 20th. I look forward to bringing you coverage of these events and other great stores; I also encourage you to take a look at the items, stores, and events featured in this post as well. Remember to take demos for a happy shopping experience. I’ll see you over on the next one but until then as always, stay stylish fellas!

[#385] It’s A Sign Of The Times

We never learn, we’ve been here before
Why are we always stuck and running from
The bullets, the bullets?

Sign Of The Times” –  Harry Styles  ♫Listen

After a successful shopping excursion to Shiny Shabby and The Men’s Department, I pulled some other items from my closet to put together a look to go with the one of the items from Modulus’ blogger pack from Hair Fair 2017. If you haven’t been to the fair yet and are able to easily get in, you’ll find there are a modest amount of male hair styles but not nearly the same amount as the gals. With that said, you’ll still find something to bring home with you in your shopping bag to wow those around you and without any further interruption here’s the credits for this entry.


HAIR⊱ Modulus – Brendan Hair ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Hair Fair ’17
HAIRBASE⊱ Modulus – Jai Hair Base ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Hair Fair ’17

As I previously mentioned, these items came as a part of a blogger pack straight from Modulus. Though to be honest even if I wasn’t a blogger and saw this at Hair Fair, I would have bought it for the simple fact it is a hairstyle I like and have worn before by other designers. It fits Catwa heads pretty well so that is a plus but I haven’t tried it on anything else. Good news is that it is re-sizeable so for those of you that do not have or are currently using a Catwa brand mesh head it should still fit for you.

HEADCATWA – Shaheen (Bento) ♯ ☆NEW

Catwa Clip is at it again! After the release of the “Stanley” mesh head last month at the ULTRA event, she’s bolstered her male bento head collection with a new face. “Shaheen” is a little more subtle with his features compared to the previous release and fits somewhere in the middle between it and the first release, “Daniel”. I like that it isn’t as rugged but still has great masculine appeal for those who are not high on rock hard jawlines. You can get this at the CATWA main location right now!

FACE⊱ STRAY DOG – LEWIS – TONE 02 ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ TMD

Having a new mesh head made me think that I should make my next entry with a new skin to go along with it and I did not have to wait long. The newest round of The Men’s Department features several new skins but this go round I decided to start out with one of my new favorites and the latest release by Stray Dog. “Lewis” is definitely one of those charming fellas that has an intelligent yet sexy look to him. As with most releases from Stray Dog, it is a Catwa applier and is packaged with a shape and brow base but you can always use an alternative of your choice.

BODY[SIGNATURE] Gianni – Body – v3.5

SWEATERBlankLine – Long-Sleeved SweatShirts

This item is one that I had originally purchased at one of the rounds of the Signature Event but did not get to during it’s initial run but I do like to try to give things that are still relatively recent an opportunity to fit a look that I’m putting together and the opportunity came for this sweater. It’s one of those that you could wear on a cool day or evening at the beach and wouldn’t just limit you to wearing it in the winter time. I like how the left arm is pushed just up to the forearm while on the right side it hangs a bit baggy at the wrists. I am wearing this for the Signature body but the package also includes sizes for Classic Avatars (Fitmesh) and also TMP mesh bodies.

JEANSnot so bad . KEANU Jeans – Dirty

Another item that managed to slip into my closet and get lost when it was released at TMD in a previous round. I like that these aren’t your typical rolled up cuff jeans or skinny jeans. They have a little bit of bagginess without looking like you’ve filled your pants as it were and they come down to about the calf in length which gives you the option to wear low or hi-tops or even boots that are ankle length. They’ve got standard sizes for classic avi’s and sizes for Belleza Jake, SLink Physique, as well as Signature Gianni (which is what I am wearing) and TMP.

SHOES⊱ -NOeditiON- Lace Pumps (White) ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Shiny Shabby

Finally there is an item from NOeditiON that I know will work well for mesh bodies because there are several fits for this classic low-top sneaker. Several colors to choose from (unless you pick up the FATPACK as I did) with a light mesh side panel which has a little bit of transparency. It does also have a version for the gals which has a bit of a floral pattern in the side panel. I really like this shoe and with it actually having sizes for Signature Gianni and SLink Physique for the guys as well as Maitreya and SLink for the gals.

IE – Mellow v2 (9) ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Square 1

Square 1 is one of those events that is newer on the scene and I’m still getting acquainted with it but I did receive a blogger pack from Image Essentials containing the “Mellow” V1 and V2 pose sets. Each set has 10 poses included (5 regular and 5 mirrored). They are great for any kind of scene where whoever is posing is in a seated position. These poses are bento so depending on the size of your avatar frame you may need to do some adjusting to ensure that it looks the way it is supposed to.

I hope you enjoyed this post which in a way is basically a post 4th of July setting with my outfit consisting of red, white, and blue items. I will be back again soon with more items from Hair Fair 2017 and a look at a few things from the Summerfest ’17 event. I encourage you to take a trip to the stores an events featured in this post and also to grab demos so that you are not left with buyer’s regret as it sometimes happens to the best of us. Be well until we return with a new look and as always, stay stylish fellas!

[#358] I Stand Alone

Help me decide if my fire will burn out
Before you can breathe
Breathe into me…

I Stand Alone  Godsmack  ♫Listen

I‘m back again with more goodies for you to behold and events to run to look at what’s new and good in fashion+ on the grid of SL. It’s a new week and the first week in a new month so you know what the means… The Men’s Department is back with a new round of great items and let me tell you from the little walk-through I had, it definitely does not disappoint.

While I’m on the topic of TMD, Modulus has a new offering that you can feast your eyes on called “Rafa”. 6 tones are available to choose from and like with most of the new offerings from the M BARE line, it has the options for browless/brows and for clean/facial hair or the combination of brows and facial hair. I really like that the eyebrow shaper and body shape are included as it really does the skin justice to know what the creator had in his mind for what “Rafa” should look like out in the world. Of course you can use whatever shape you think is best or modify the provided one as well.

At the main location of Go&See, you will find another of the new items I have in this entry. The “Mermaid” eyes com in 10 tones and when you think of the name you might think it could be very feminine but let me assure you, a good portion of the tones included in this package are unisex. I intend to showcase more in future entries because I like what the brand did with this release. It can be used easily for fantasy or even for regular everyday. That’s how versatile these eyes are. Also they are only for Catwa eyes for anyone that has them separately or the ones included with the head of their choice.

I’ve also got something for you from Men Only Monthly! NoEdition has the “Military Cargos” available right now at the event until the 15th of April. It comes with an included HUD where you can change the fabric of the pants as well as the metal and fabric on the belt. It only comes in standard sizes which is one of the only downsides I have to say about this product. I would have liked to have seen either Fitmesh or at least sizes for some of the mesh bodies. I liked these so much though that I made the best of it that I could.

There is a new #selfie backdrop Gacha from RAMA that is currently going on at The Gacha Guardians event. After every 20 plays you get a bonus backdrop from the machine but you need to act now because once the event is over at the end of the month the special prizes will be gone forever.

I believe it is now that time in the entry to close things up now that you know what items are new and where to get them. Also in the credits below you’ll be able to see what other items were used here and take the taxi’s to get to each store or event. As always it has been my pleasure and until the next time, stay stylish fellas!
