[#636] Suck My Kiss

 

Hit me you can’t hurt me suck my kiss
Kiss me please pervert me stick with this
Is she gonna curtsey?
Give to me sweet sacred bliss
That mouth was made to…

Red Holt Chili Peppers, ♫Suck My Kiss♫

 

So as I was putting this together I started thinking about how much my avi looked like Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. This of course prompted me to look through their music catalogue for a tune that I could rock to while doing what it is that I do. Being that this is a Vintage Fair post I went back in time to choose a track that I consider exactly that…vintage.

Sure the event is themed pre-80’s but the items that I’m blogging have that feel and the setting does also in a way; besides if I’m emulating Flea in some capacity he has a very old school vibe about him and has remained so mostly through the years. Remember that time he was in “Point Break”? Yeah that’s pretty vintage as well so it’s all relative really.

The post I do for the event are probably the most grueling as far as blogging goes but I have to say they really are a lot of fun and I enjoy them. The challenge that I get from seeing what I can match with what is like a puzzle, which is something I’ve always enjoyed in some form or another.

Poses featuring instruments of any kind always grab my attention and that’s why I picked out the “Guitarhero” pose by WHATEVER as the first one that I blog from the fair. There are 5 different poses to choose from and a vintage Beatlesque guitar prop to help bring it to life. Being a fan of the old Guitar Hero game series it was cool that I kind of in a roundabout way bring this all together as this blog’s soundtrack is featured in the 3rd volume of the game as a co-op unlockable song (there’s my flashing my pop culture video game nerd knowledge on you all!)

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that the guitar will have to be rezzed or edited to get the poses to work together so being proficient at it will come in handy. The guitar mesh is a cool design but the only regret that I have is that the creator didn’t make a version of each to fit the poses as not everyone is great with manipulating the axis points and getting the axis right for the best fit.

If I were to rate this item using a stars system I would give it a 4 to 4.5 out of 5 as I really like the thought behind the poses, I’m only taking away slight points for the fact that guitars for each pose were not included. Everything was nicely done and for those who love doing music themed pics this would easily make your photo rock (bad pun alert!)

A lot of cool musicians have tattoos…even pretend virtual ones right? So another new item from Vintage Fair is INker’s “Liburna Tattoo) that I have the medium opacity applied. Tattoos are not something I’m all that great at describing especially considering a lot of the ones you see are not themed and have many different kinds of phrasing and iconography so I’m going to let the close-up pic speak for itself.

One thing I can say regarding the tattoo is that it does have a backpiece with a vintage ship and that to me makes it vintage as many tattoos from the past did.

WHATEVER – Guitarhero Pose/Prop Set

  • Bento static poses
  • 5 different poses in set
  • Mesh guitar prop included
  • Exclusive to Vintage Fair starting June 7th

INKer – Liburna Tattoo

  • HUD includes Dark, Light and Medium appliers
  • Compatible with Belleza, Maitreya, Omega and SLink
  • Separate HUD for Signature bodies
  • Exclusive to Vintage Fair beginning June 7th

 

 

Now that I’ve already dropped two different Vintage Fair posts out before opening, I’m looking forward to when it actually officially opens so that everyone who has come by the site with interest in the items blogged can get them for themselves. Don’t worry though it will come soon enough and I will be adding the map to my first coverage post as well as the post I do when the map is released.

For the people who are big into fashion, decor and accessories of the past then this event is the best place for it and the only one where you’ll find a selection of the best stores involved. I’m probably going to say it a lot during my coverage but what’s old is new again with this event and it’s a lot of fun to revisit these things.

[#631] The Rains of Castamere

 

And so he spoke, and so he spoke
That lord of Castamere
But now the rains weep o’er his hall
With no one there to hear
Yes, now the rains weep o’er his hall
And not a soul to hear

Ramin Dijwadi feat. The National, ♫The Rains of Castamere♫

 

Tomorrow marks the end of an era as HBO will air it’s finale Episode of “Game of Thrones”. Many of my friends and colleagues were huge fans of the show and tried for a long time for me to watch it but at the time I was engrossed in something else. It wasn’t til very recently that I broke down at the behest of my Brenna and also Lucky that I told them I would make sure to catch up so that I could watch the final episode the night it aired. I’m very close to achieving that goal and have been consumed by it; watching it feverishly. Now knowing what everyone else knows that are fans of this show…that it is epic.

Everyone has a favorite character whether it be Dany or Jon (who are probably the main two that people are fans of) but the one person that’s stood out to me with great writing and even better acting by Peter Dinklage, is Tyrion Lannister. The character comes from a house full of really bad people and while he’s not necessarily clean himself, he’s proven to me at least that he has the most heart and he thinks very hard before he acts. The world he comes from looks down on him for being a dwarf and with everything set against him has come along way from where he started.

I’m not sure how the story will end which is the fun and scary part about any show so I will be waiting along with everyone else to see exactly how it all plays out.

I was certainly worried about how well poses would work after shaping myself like a dwarf but luckily with the cool “DYLN” pose set by DAE, which is available right now at Pose Fair, it all worked out very nicely. DAE is a store that can be filed under the stores that I’m not as familiar with but I have heard of them before, I just have never really utilized them until now. With covering all the different stores for my coverage of the Fair, I usually try to choose several that are not sponsors or stores I see in every day conversations.

The actual pose from the set that I chose looked and felt to me like something Tyrion himself might do on the show and wouldn’t essentially be breaking character as essentially when we do scenes that are homages to something we try to keep it as true to the source as possible. When the idea came to me I was pretty excited.

DAE – DYLN Pose Set

  • Bento static poses
  • 6 poses to choose from
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair until 05/25/19

Image Essentials provided the backdrop that makes up 3/4 of the scene outside of the torches from Aisling and myself. While it is harder to show features of something like a prop, I can give you the pertinent info that is necessary. It’s an original mesh item that can be resized by a menu that comes up when clicked in case you want to make it monstrous.

That brings me to what I’m wearing and it’s definitely a mix of things and much like the last post I did (even though it was female items) it’s comprised of mostly gacha items and one new event item which happened to coincide nicely as far as timing went to do this post. Many creators lately have been doing items that were inspired by the show and even the Enchantment event is fully dedicated with their current round currently titled “The Iron Throne”.

Hotdog has made the tunic I am wearing that is a part of Enchantment; it’s called the “Casterly Rock Tunic” and it’s very nice. There are two versions to it (I bought the leather version as it suited me better than the noble version). It comes with a HUD that allows you to change the outer part of the tunic as well as the inside part as well. It’s not fitted for a specific body so with the right alpha cuts it should work with the main bodies currently out there (save for maybe Aesthetic but for those of you guys with that at least check the demo!)

The pants and boots come from the “Fire and Ice” gacha set by RIOT which was a part of The Epiphany April round. It is likely now in their main store and has sizes for both Belleza (Jake) and Signature (Gianni). The entire set for the males is truly super cool and for fans of the show it’s very accurate with touches that any enthusiast will notice.

There have been a lot of photos I’ve seen that have been GoT themed and many of them are awesome, I hope that those of you who do see this post will think that I captured the essence of it. One thing I know is that it was a lot of fun putting together and will likely do more themed from the show even after it ends as I have a lot of making up for that as well.

Just because the show is ending doesn’t mean a fans love for it will.

[#395] In A World Of Human Wreckage

When I’m lost and I’m found
and I can’t touch the ground
I’m plowed into the sound…

Plowed” – SpongeListen

This is the last weekend of the Indie Teepee event and I hope you’ve been able to get there and enjoy all the sights and sounds as well as shopping that the event has to offer. This is my last post covering the event and I hope that you agree with me that it is going out with a bang. The item I chose to feature here is a fun one, and considering I don’t do decor (or landscaping) items very much I thought it might be one of those times where I snuck one in. While I didn’t create everything you see in the background, that would go to the wonderful sim known as Netherwood. I just provided a little extra touch to complete my idea/theme.

Most of my overall look remains the same from the last few posts but I am featuring a new skin by Modulus which you will be able to find at the Mesh Body Addicts Fair that just recently started.

The next photo you are about to see is an overview shot of the BROKEN BOY giant doll by NOMAD. I submerged it in water as if it was a part of an old civilization from long ago that has simply been left dormant and decaying around what has come after it. I really liked this shot too much to edit it into the secondary features shot so I left it as was originally shot.

I‘d like to thank everyone from the event coordinator down to all the artists, speakers, musicians, and item creators that took part in Indie Teepee. This is truly one of the most unique events out there and I am seriously proud to have been associated with it as a blogger; I look forward to next years event. Here’s the full credits for those of you who are eagerly awaiting to know what took part in this photo shoot. Make sure when you hit these stores and events you grab demos and happy shopping! I’ll see you again soon but until then, stay stylish fellas!

This handsome devil is just the latest from my sponsor in Modulus. Giles comes in six tones (I am featuring Cream here). Also included is a eyebrow shaper and a body shape (which I did not use for this shoot). This is part of a new era of skins by the brand and if this is any indication, good things are in store for the M-Bare division of Modulus.

CARDIGAN⊱ /Ascend/ Hiroshi Cardigan w/Shirt – Gray

This item was a holdout from the July round of The Men’s Department that I was able to find a look to compliment it with. Even though the weather for me in the real world is a bit warm yet, it’s not something I have to worry about in-world. I like how it is paired with the shirt perfectly and has a good flow to it without looking constricted. Sizes available in the package are for Adam, Belleza, Signature, and SLink and also include a HUD to color change the t-shirt if you choose to go with another color.

SHORTS⊱ RIOT / Emery Denim Shorts @ Mesh Body Addicts FairNEW

It’s a back to back entry with another new item from one of my sponsors in RIOT. I have the privilege of reviewing these slightly rolled up shorts which have worn elements and threading that is also worn and frayed. In this FATPACK there are a ton of different options for denim and at least a dozen different choices for the threading. You can purchase single denim colors but if you like variety it is very practical to go with the FATPACK. Sizes you can find in the package include Adam, Belleza, Signature, and SLink.

DOLL⊱ NOMAD // BROKEN BOY @ Indie TeepeeNEW

NOMAD never disappoints me when they release an item that catches my eye, which is why I chose this item as part of my blogger product reviews for Indie Teepee. I really get the feel that this large doll was inspired somehow by the Fallout games and also reminds me of something personally. Many may be way too young to remember Big Boy restauarants or have ever had them in their area. It was pretty big in the midwest and outside them was a huge doll in a similar style holding a hamburger. At first I tried to find a post apocalyptic location to shoot at but I could not find any that I was able to put this item down at but I do feel that it turned out nicely as it ended up.

Le Poppycock *La Di Da* B (Make Good)

This pose set is one I had stored away from a while back from an event and when I was looking for something I thought would fit, I found it in my unused poses but I am glad that I was able to because I do enjoy Le Poppycock and their poses. Check them out if you are needing poses because there is just about something for everyone.

[#394] Nobody Loves No One

No, I don’t want to fall in love (this girl is only going to break your heart)

Wicked Game” – Chris IsaakListen

After having seen so many wonderful photos being taken at Surfers Bay, I decided to see what it was like for myself. Now I have to give you a little disclaimer before you click the link down in the credits if you want to check it out for yourself. It is a beach sim that allows you to wear beach attire or you can go in the buff if you are daring enough. There is also a fee to get into the beach area but it really nicely put together so I didn’t see much harm to pay a fee so that I could get a really good shot with the theme I was working with.

My secondary shot which you’ll see below was actually a retake because I felt like I didn’t get as good of a view of the main product I was trying to feature. I honestly feel like this shot turned out better than the primary one. Don’t get me wrong though I like how they both turned out, just the second one is a bit better after a little touching up. Of course you can form your own opinions of which you like better.

Most of the credits are the same from the last post I did so if you want to see what my thoughts were, I encourage you to check back to it to see what I had to say. There are two new items in this look from the Men Only Monthly and Indie Teepee events. If you do go to these places…grab demos before making a purchase because you’ll be happy you did. That’s all that I have this time so thank you for taking the time to look and as always, stay stylish fellas!

EYES⊱ MESANGE – Wicked Game Eyes @ M.O.MNEW

One of the main reasons I chose the theme I did for this entry were these eyes. The name alone reminds me of the song and I thought that since I like being diverse with my choices for themes and music that I would take a run with this. There are 15 different color eyes that you can purchase (either singly or as a FATPACK). Included are mesh eyes and a HUD to change the size of the pupil as well as a HUD for Omega enabled eyes for those of you that have them. As with all the products in the MESANGE line, they are vivid and look really well when photographed.

TRUNKS⊱ RIOT / Moby Swim Shorts @ Indie TeepeeNEW

This awesome bit of swimwear comes as a review copy from my sponsor, the RIOT brand which is a part of the Indie Teepee event (which I am also grateful to have as a sponsor). One of the reasons I love this brand is the amount of choices available to you as well as easy to use HUDs. You have a choice of buying single colors but there are just so many great combinations that at a reduced price, getting them all seems like a great idea. There are three parts to them that can be color changed in the FATPACK, but if you get a single color only the trim and the side panels can be colored via HUD. The detail on the side panels give the effect of scales like on a fish which is very cool. Sizes included for this product are Belleza, Signature, SLink, and TMP respectively. If you haven’t been to Indie Teepee it would be a great opportunity to before they close up for the year on the 6th of August.

[#384] Where No One Knows My Name

I think I’ll go to Boston
I think I’ll start a new life
I think I’ll start it over where no one knows my name

Boston” – AugustanaListen

I welcome everyone back to another look from yours truly, where this time I have goodies from events such as UBER, Designer Circle, Cosmopolitan, Man Cave and also Men Only Monthly. Just like usual you’ll find the full credits below where you will be given transportation to the events and stores themselves. I’m going to try something a bit new with this entry and for the new items that are being featured I’ll write a little bit about each of them. Let me get into what went on in this one so I can get you out there to enjoy a shopping experience.

HAIRBURLEY – Gabriel

Burley is a well known name in the hair game in the world of Second Life, most people reading this will know that but just in case you haven’t found this fine example of stylish tresses then I am glad that I am able to give you a taste. The recently released “Gabriel” hair is a nice mid length side combed hair but what makes this just a bit more special is that it comes with a styler HUD and gives you the option to choose if you want the full hair or a version where the side is shaved which is something of a major hair trend that I’m noticing. For this item I went with the variety pack as there were more than I would possibly use with the full FATPACK, but there’s still a generous amount of colors included. You are also getting an included Hairbase for Legacy users, and also applier HUDs for Omega, Signature, and TMP respectively.

HEADCATWA – Daniel (Bento)

EYES⊱ AG. Passion Eyes ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Cosmopolitan (Until 07/02)

We are in the final days of the current round of Cosmopolitan in which Avi-Glam is participating with their release of the “Passion Eyes”. There are 6 different colors to choose from all with little flecks in them to make them even more unique. Provided in this package are mesh eyes as well as HUDs for Catwa, LeLutka, and Omega applier enabled eye products.

FACE⊱ Clef de Peau: Ivo T2 ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ M.O.M

MOUSTACHE⊱ Kauna – Bento Moustache: English [v1.2] ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Man Cave
BEARD⊱ Kauna – Bento Beard: Shape A [v1.2] ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Man Cave

Kauna, a brand known for their clothing such as their suits and more recently jeans/boots combination have stepped into new territory with their release of new bento facial hair, a beard and a moustache. The “English” Moustuache is a very old style handlebar that works really nicely with the “Shape A” beard. Both of these come with a HUD with 9 pre-selectable hair colors but also has a tintable feature if your style choice is not one of the ones included. For a first effort, I think Kauna nailed this and is a product that I’ll certainly feature again in the future. It must also be noted that this beard is for users or Catwa branded heads. If you have something other than Daniel and Stanley it is advised to try the demo first. You can find both of these at the inaugural round of Man Cave, and from one fella to another, I definitely recommend it to any beard lover.

BODY[SIGNATURE] Gianni – Body – v3.5

SHIRT⊱ AITUI – Mountaineer – Ash ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ UBER
WRAP⊱ AITUI – Mountaineer – Waist Wrap ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ UBER

I’m really excited about the latest release by Aitui that is currently available at UBER, which just started a fresh round several days ago. The “Mountaineer” shirt is best described as a graphic tee with the added benefit of suspenders thrown in. There are 8 colors to choose from and fit Signature, SLink, and TMP mesh bodies. I’m wearing the “Ash” version which is a mid to dark gray color. I partnered it up with the companion item that can aslo be found at the same event. The “Mountaineer Waist Wrap” is a cool flannel shirt that goes around the waist and works for that potential evening chill one might experience hanging out at the beach. The waist wrap has HUD with 8 different choices and fits the same three body formats the shirt does. I really knew I had to have these the moment I saw them and I certainly hope you get that same feeling.

SHORTS⊱ RIOT / Simon Shorts ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ M.O.M

As one of my sponsors, I was honored to receive the latest clothing release from RIOT that is out now at Men Only Monthly. The “Simon” shorts are a great addition to the look that I’ve put together. The FATPACK provides you with 28 different colors of fabric as well as that same option with a seersucker print. The belt is customizable as well with the same color choices and 9 metal buckle choices. I decided to coordinate with the flannel color of the waist wrap and went with the teal seersucker print. The shorts are just the right length just above the kneecap as I don’t like them all that short personally. The HUD is easy to use and no matter what color you choice you’ll definitely be getting a quality product. Head over to Men Only Monthly now and give them a shot!

SHOES⊱ The Owl. – Must Have Chucks (Batman) ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Shiny Shabby

I found myself browsing around Shiny Shabby when it opened and came across some high tops by a brand I was not familiar with. At the event, The Own has the “Must Have Chucks” in a variety of colors and also a few themed ones based of television shows and also characters. The ones I am wearing have a really cool image of the Caped Crusader and his nemesis on one side and on the other an image of The Clown Prince of Crime. I’m a sneaker addict so it didn’t take a lot of convincing for me to snag up the FATPACK; the included sizes are (Maitreya and SLink for Females) and (Signature, SLink, and TMP for Males). If you want a good looking high top check out The Owl at Shiny Shabby.

BACKDROP⊱ [Bad Unicorn] Barbers Backdrop ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Limit8 (Sold Out)

Limit8 is a great event that gives shoppers the chance to own one of a kind items that even before the event ends could be sold completely out of stock. One of those items that is being featured here is the “Barbers Backdrop” from Bad Unicorn Clothing. These scene depicts the front of a closed barber shop and comes with a secured door and even has a barbers pole to give it that true authentic shop look. Bad Unicorn did really well with this and just like their other backdrops made it fun to pose in front of. The neon signs even cast off a reddish glow to them; I’m glad to say that I have this genuine one of a kind item.

IE – GothNIC ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Designer Circle

Designer Circle is not often an event that I’m able to find items but I just happened to find one of the latest pose sets by Image Essentials, in which I am able to review copies of. The GothNIC pose set was designed for the female in mind but I was able to find a way to take one of the poses from the set and use it to help create my scene. I have to say I really enjoy being able to take poses that aren’t specifically for guys and put a spin on them and make them work. For those ladies who might be reading this, these really are great poses to use for such occasions as creating profile pictures. Why not head to Designer Circle and take a look for yourself you may be surprised how much you like them.

I appreciate anyone who took the time to check this out and I also hope that you’re able to find uses for these items as well or are even able to find other items from the events and stores that have been featured here in this entry. I am going to call this a wrap but remember as always to stay stylish fellas!

[#378] I’m Having The Time Of My Life

Better be ready when the sun goes down
when the sun goes down, when the sun goes down
Better be ready when the stars come out
when the stars come out, when the stars come out

Time Of My Life” – The AftersListen

So who is ready for summer? I can tell you this gentleman blogger is!!! With themed events and clothes that make this time of year one of the best and most creative to be a photographer and visual artist, it’s going to definitely be a very creative time here at These Conversations Kill. Before I get too long winded I’m going to get right into it and tell you what there is to know about what you see in the photos above.

Modulus has created another cool hair that they have for sale at the Tropical Summer ’17 event. “Caesar” is everything you might guess from the name. It’s inspired by the Roman Emperor, Julius Caesar. This is a very stylish cut and definitely one that you’d want to have for the summer months because if you’re like me in the real world, hot weather and hair are just not very friendly. I paired it with the Stealthic hairbase that is still available right now at Men Only Monthly. So head over to Tropical Summer ’17 and take a look for yourself at the 5 different colors packs or if you like variety, grab them all!!!

For this post I am once again wearing the “Arthur” skin from Stray Dog but this time I have paired it with the “Cameron” shape from Reach that you can find at the new Souled Out tri-monthly event. It is kind of hard to describe shapes for me but all I can say is I know that it makes me look like a stud so we’ll just leave it at that.

Sometimes in fashion males tend to wear female inspired things and vice versa and I think when it comes to eyes on the virtual grid, I think they can be unisex for the most part and the with the “Goldmine Eyes” by MESANGE it is certainly no different. This set of 5 different gold flecked inspired iris tones are apart of the Women’s Only Hunt currently going on this month. Inside the pack you get the mesh eyes with a HUD for them and also one for those with Omega Applier enabled eyes. Hunts can be fun so head over to the newly remodeled MESANGE store for your prize!

When I first saw the WIP (Work In Progress) for the RIOT “Maui Swim Shorts” I knew that these were going to be a fave of mine. Being a part of the blogger group for the brand is certainly an honor and here is what I have to say about this product. While I haven’t tried any of the other sizes included in the package, I can tell you that the Gianni shorts fit perfectly on the body. That’s not even the best part of these swim shorts by a long shot. The fact that you can change the three stripes to give yourself remarkable combinations which would allow you to be able to wear these many times without really wearing the same style twice gives it a very good value. Being a blogger makes it hard to wear things more than once but in those free times between photo shoots, I like to wear some of my favorite items and these will definitely be high on my priority list for those days relaxing by the pool. I also have to mention that buying the full package will give you even more extensive customization as well.

Last month at TMD {Milk Motion} released a prefab of a pool that you might find at a gymnasium or maybe an olympic training facility. Knowing that the RIOT shorts were coming, I picked this up as ideas were forming in my head for a scene and I feel like I really did make it what I saw in my head. This build is very nicely done and along with the pose I chose for the main “action” shot it made for an excellent and fun to do scene.

I have to send out a big thank you to Kay Weston, the owner of Image Essentials, which is a sponsor of myself and These Conversations Kill. She provided me one of the older products I had seen that fit the idea I had perfectly. The Summertime Fun set is in its original form a pose prop but I managed to use the poses inside of it to give me the ability to do a cannonball into the pool, who doesn’t enjoy doing that (in a deep water setting as I wouldn’t advise doing it in shallow water). I also used for my secondary close up shot one of the poses from the “Kai” pose set as well.

Now that you know the important parts of what went into this latest entry I will leave you to the full style credits below along with the transportation necessary to go to the stores and events featured here within. I will catch you on the next one and as always, stay stylish fellas!

[#368] Baby, I Could Die A Happy Man

I don’t need no vacation
No fancy destination
Baby, you’re my great escape
We could stay at home
Listen to the radio
Or dance around the fireplace

Die A Happy Man” –  Thomas Rhett  ♫Listen

It seems like spring and summer is not arriving fast enough (at least in my area) so I thought I’d warm the spirit with a lovely beach couples photo that for you gentleman is loaded with new goodies from events such as The Avenue and the now monthly SIGNATURE Event. I also have some great news for those of you who are looking for a good pair of jeans. I’ll get to that in just a moment but here’s the low down on the latest event releases.

I was browsing my go to website Seraphim to look at the latest events and shopping guides and I stumbled upon an event called The Avenue. I don’t believe it’s been around very long and if it has it hasn’t really hit my radar but I thought I would give it a look through to see if there was anything that I might want to use. While looking I found a brand called Erde that have released a skin called “Kai”. I thought it looked interesting so I went over there and grabbed a demo. This skin definitely has a macho side to it with facial stubble already built in so there was really no need to add anything to it. I do implore you though if you head to The Avenue to take a look at this please take a demo because the skin tone chart is not the usual light to dark. I found that after applying the demonstration that tone #7 was the right fit for me. They also have for purchase the fatpack of skin appliers so you don’t have to instantly run to the main store just so you can look like a whole human being.

After a bit of a break, the SIGNATURE Event is back with a vengeance. Let me tell you for someone that owns both the head and the body this place was like a candy store. Clothes, skins, just about everything you might want is there for you to bring home. One of the items that you can purchase from there is the “Andrew” Tank Top from RIOT. Now let me tell you even though I received a review copy as the brand is one of my sponsors, I would still buy this tank because it’s the epitome of summer wear. The entire collection of colors would be worth it because there are a ton of them and I’m definitely not disappointed in this release. Also included in the package are sizes for Adam, SLink Physique, and TMP mesh body types.

I paired the tank with another item from RIOT, the “Lennon Long Line” Jeans which compliment it well not only in the way they fit together but also because these jeans are just really top of the line. What’s even better is that right now at the RIOT main location these jeans are 50% the regular price during the duration of The Dressing Room event. You can head over there by taking the taxi down below in the credits and catch a great deal.

Given the choice of going barefoot or wearing something on my feet, I choose to go with the latter because I found a great pair of sandals that are available at the SIGNATURE Event as well. {kokoia} has been killing it lately with their footwear and the “Alessio” sandals are no different. There are five different colors in the included HUD that you can change both the straps and soles to. You don’t even have to buy them individually, it is all together for a great price. Considering I’ll probably spend a good amount of time on the beach this summer,

As you’ll notice from the photo I have a lovely assistant joining me for this blog entry. I’ve included the credits for what she’s wearing as well so if those of you gals that read this site are interested you can also participate in shopping with or without a gentleman.

Now that you know what went into this post I’ll encourage you to look just a little further down and see the taxi’s for the stores and events included here. I’ll be back with more SIGNATURE Event goodies and possibly some things from events such as Memento Mori, The Dark Style Fair 4, and the freshly opened May round of The Men’s Department. Until then as always, stay stylish fellas and for you gals…keep it classy!
