[#374] So Say Hello To Heaven

Chris Cornell
1964-2017

I never wanted to write these words down for you
With the pages of phrases of all the things we’ll never do.

Say Hello 2 Heaven” –  Temple Of The Dog  ♫Listen

After a few days of reflection and introspection, I decided that I was going to show my appreciation for a musician who has been a part of my life for over 20 years. From the beginning when I first heard “Outshined” by Soundgarden I knew there was something special about the bands vocalist, Chris Cornell. This past Wednesday he left the world and left a lot of questions behind. I’m not going to write about the circumstances behind it, I’m only going to think fondly back on the time and the music that his legacy leaves behind. I put together a look that reminds me of a time when I was first introduced to the grunge/alternative scene that is so close to my heart and take me back to some simpler times.

It was not just the times with Soundgarden that I am fond of but that is where my appreciation began. I think one of the best projects that Chris was a part of was Temple of The Dog album which he teamed up with what would become future members of another legendary grunge group, Pearl Jam (who were the remnants of a group I am about to mention). They got together and made a record as a tribute to their fallen friend, Andrew Wood, who had been the vocalist for the Seattle based group called Mother Love Bone. Andrew had passed away due to an overdose and much like people today are mourning Chris, the music scene felt the ripple of his passing. The theme in today’s look is from the Temple of The Dog album which some 25 years later is just as fitting for Andrew as it is now for Chris. There are many musicians from many different eras but very few of them had the kind of voice, Chris Cornell did and that is why he will truly be missed by his family, friends, and fans all over the world. Thank you for the music.

There are very few new items in this look except for the MESANGE exclusive from We Love RP in the form of the “Sheba Eyes” there are 15 different iris tones to choose from and are also available a bundle together, complete with a HUD that will work with the included mesh eyes as well as Omega Applier friendly ones such as Catwa.

The other new item is from CDC (or Chris Dunkelheit Creations) which is a maker of shapes, skins, beards and other fine products. What I am wearing from them here is the No. 57 beard which reminds me of the early 90’s mustache and goatee that Chris wore and also could be seen in the brief cameo of his in the movie, “Singles”.

Once again I am wearing the Belleza “Jake” mesh body and I am finding the more that I am using it, the more I am really liking it and cannot wait for more products to be released exclusively for it and I know that they will be pouring in to stores and events in the near future.

Fitting my grunge theme are the “Clay” dirty jeans from Legal Insanity. These disheveled cut off shorts with fraying bottoms come complete with a shirt wrapped around them. The store also sells different texture appliers for the shirt which I purchased the TARTAN v.1 extra because I really liked how the flannel inspired the look even more. With the use of Alpha Sliders, these shorts fit perfectly with the standard sizes provided in the package.

For footwear,  I am wearing the [Deadwool] “Strider” boots which I knew were absolutely perfect in completing this 90’s inspired grunge look.

Lastly for honorable mention in this post is the chair that is used in the scene, it is the “Lexington Chair” from {Q-Essentials}. It has poses included in it but the setting I envisioned in my head was to be sitting on the floor so I did not use them. It is a great decor item to add to your collection if you are looking for new furniture. There is also a Sofa available as well. The pose I used is from <K&S> Poses and is from the “No Problem” set # 2. These are mostly sitting or crouching poses for those who are looking to set up a scene without furniture or just want to be posed on the floor.

That is all there is to know about what went into the styling of this post and I hope you enjoyed this tribute as much as I did creating it. I thank any of you who read, view, like, comment, or fave this on social media. I appreciate it all and I hope that I’m able to express that to you in some form one day. Until next time, as always…stay stylish fellas!

[#360] They Said It Gets Easier But They Lied

Really, I’m so thankful for the people I meet,
the places I’ve seen but when she’s not here
It doesn’t feel like I’m living my dream

Miles Away” –  Memphis May Fire (feat. Kellin Quinn)  ♫Listen

After taking a small break for myself, I am back with a bunch of new things that I am truly excited about and to share with you. From this look you’ll find items from the recently open Spring round of The Season’s Story, more goods from The Men’s Department and also a look at one of my favorite items from Shoetopia.

Let’s start with the “Jake” skin from Modulus that is out now at The Seasons Story. I really like this skin as it really coincides with what I look for in a look for my avi. It comes with the options you’ve come to know from Modulus’ “M BARE” line of skins. Shapes for the brows and body are also included. The product is worth going to check out and I’m utilizing the cream tone but if you are looking for something else they have other tones that might suit you better.

Many people including myself love the [Deadwool] brand and that truly may be an understatement. I’ve been a follower of this brand since their very beginnings and they seem to continue to produce products that are truly amazing and well crafted. Their most recent release at the Shoetopia event is no exception. “Chase” is a low top style sneaker that comes in various colors but if you get the full pack you get extra bits in the HUD that comes with it. There are also built in socks which you can change as well, or remove them and go without. I’m a sucker for shoes like this and I know that these will definitely get plenty of use even if they don’t appear here on this site.

I’m also wearing the {Cold-Ash} “Tyler” tank top from The Men’s Department that uses the classic color HUD. I really love how this fits, which I am wearing it for the Gianni body. It goes great with the BlankLine “CargoPants” that were from the past version of the SIGNATURE event. “Tyler” has an option for a thinner waist if you choose to make it more fitting to your body. I like things to be a little looser so I went with the wider waisted version.

The second release of three to come from MESANGE at the We Love RP event is called the “Taomina Eyes”. These eyes are stunning as are all releases you can find from the brand. 15 different colors to choose from with a HUD that includes Omega enabled appliers. These eyes are not just for role-play enthusiasts. They can be used for everyday which is another thing I like about the majority of the releases MESANGE put out.

The bag you see me holding is the {Q-Essentials} Messenger Bag; while there is no set release date for this item, I was granted the privilege of being able to showcase it here for you guys. When it is released, I will inform you in a future entry as I link back to this post so that you can grab it when the time comes. I really like this bag and it’s made well and there will be more colors to choose from when it has a proper release.

I have to give a special mention to [Bad Unicorn] for their excellent backdrops. For this entry I went back from one of their earlier releases the “Hype-Beast” set and am using the RARE from this gacha machine. It fit the idea I had in my head so I’m very glad that I was able to make use of this.

Also be sure to check out Exile, they have a new build at their main location as well as a gift for both the gals and the fellas. They have new hair textures for their products so I think that is well worth checking it out.

Now that you are better informed about what you see in this entry, I leave you with the transportation to get to these stores and events so you can see everything they have to offer. I’ll catch you again soon but until then, stay stylish fellas!

[#298] The Wicked Get No Rest

post298_01post298_02

Trouble on my left
Trouble on my right
I’ve been facing trouble almost all my life

{Q-Essentials} is back after a short hiatus with a brand new release and a brand new store location. For this look, I have the honor of showcasing the “Wesley Military Shirt”. The version I’m wearing is the Obsidian color, but you can also purchase it in Azure, Chestnut, Hunter, and Vino and comes in standard sizing.

You can catch a taxi within the credits to go pick up one of these or all of them if you’d like and make a great addition to your closet.

Also a part of my look are the “ESKADRY” slip-ons in DARK which are a Limit8 exclusive and only have a set number to be sold so if you haven’t been to Limit8 yet then you need to jet on over there and grab these if not having to tie shoes is your thing.

MESANGE also has a new product at the new Designer’s Circle round that opened up recently. This time it is a small package of eyes called the “Melusine Eyes”. There are 5 styles of eyes that you can buy individually or as a FATPACK. Each individual pack has your standard eyes, Mesh, and HUDS for both Omega and Genesis Lab to give you plenty of choices.

Last but not least, for all of you who have CATWA heads, here is a friendly reminder that there has been a new update released for all of their products so if you haven’t been there in a while now is the time to go get the latest version of your head so that you have the latest features and bug fixes.

That’s about all I have for you this time so maybe I’ll catch you on the grid, until then keep it stylish fellas.

[#230] Pissing The Night Away

post230_01
I get knocked down
but I get up again
You’re never gonna keep me down

I’m a tad late with this considering it was meant to be a St. Patrick’s Day posting but it still counts because it is only a day after. I’d love to give the story that a massive night of partying kept me from creating this but that is simply not the case.

Because this focuses mainly on fashion, I did not credit the two signs in the background of the post but I would like to give a quick little shout out to Quinn Reinerman of {Q-Essentials} for the two items from The Pub Collection Gacha that you can find exclusively right now at Depraved Nation’s “Luck of the Irish” event which runs from the 13th through the 27th of March. If you’re looking for some cool Irish decor and a few other great gifts mixed in, it’s an inexpensive way to have a little fun.

Hope everyone had a safe and exciting St. Patty’s Day!
