[#495] Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot!

Me mind on fire
Me soul on fire, feeling hot, hot, hot
Party people
All around me feeling hot, hot, hot

Buster Poindexter, ♫Hot, Hot, Hot

Never in a million years did I ever think I’d be inspired by any song by Buster Poindexter in the history of ever but apparently I am hitting my TBT a day early and going back in time to the late 80’s (1987 to be exact). I was wracking my brain to see if I could find a song that would fit what I was going for which is technically a summer theme but most of the songs I thought of or remembered didn’t quite work until I remembered this gem.

The Men Jail has been underway now for about a week or so and plenty of great things to go there to check out and while not every item might fit your fashion style or decorating style, I feel there is something for everyone and there is at least one thing that could be taken home upon visiting the event.

We’re getting to that point where (at least in my part of the USA) summer is coming and I wanted to capitalize on that with a few of the products that I have going on in this entry including the “Outside Washers” by Grime. This outdoor shower is jam packed with different things that will make anyone wonder why they don’t have anything like this on their beach. It has many editable faces so that it can be recolored to the heart’s desire and poses for both singles and couples (which I may warn you some of the poses are not PG so keep that in mind!) The shower itself is only 19LI so it really won’t break your land bank and it is also materials enabled as during the time of my taking the photos I could see the reflection of things bouncing off of it which is pretty darn cool too.

Since I am showering in my main photo, I wanted my hair to seem like it was a bit wet when I did my closeup shots and the “Joshua” hair by Modulus fit that perfectly. 40 hair colors to choose from via 5 different color packs (with a FATPACK option available) along with an integrated color picker in each HUD that make Modulus one of the best bargains for your money when it comes to hair. Previous things I have said concerning the brand still stand up and they are by far a favorite and one I would recommend to anyone who asked me that was in the market for a new style or just coming back from an absence and needed something fresh.

You can find this hair at the mainstore now as it was previously a part of the last FaMESHed Go round, but it recently ended on the 10th of June. Now you don’t have an excuse to go to the store and find yourself a new hairdo or two (or three even).

I have a double dose of Modulus in this blog post and am also showing off their new “Eyebrows Set 1” that recently made its debut at Hipster Men’s Event. The included HUD gives you several different color options along with a tintable white application that can be adjusted to the needs of those wearing them. These brows have appliers for both CATWA and LeLutka (Omega) so that no one loses out on being able to have these for their aesthetics.

Hipster Men’s Event runs until the 16th of June so you still have a few days to go browse the event which is something I’d encourage because there are some nice things there.

Salt & Pepper is a brand that I previously only remembered for female hair but it seems they are branching out into other things and you can get a taste of that at the current round of The Men’s Department with the “Ethan” tanktop. There are so many things I could say about this that I almost do not have the right words to correctly put my thoughts in order.

This tanktop is part of a line of products that work with the water in-world so that when you go into it, it becomes wet. When you come out of the water you can slowly watch it dry (which takes a total of two and a half minutes to complete) or there is a quick dry towel included so that you can wipe yourself off right away and instantly become dry. I did my best to capture the stage of it being wet in my closeup photo so that you can see this at work and I think it is one of the coolest things to come around in a while. From what I have learned there are products like showers and squirt guns that work along with this and several women’s products already out there (with more to come) which will add a lot of fun to the summer months (and those not so real life summer ones because hey it can stay warm 365 days a year if you want!)

Sizes for the tanktop include: Belleza (which is what I am wearing), Signature (Gianni), and SLink Physique and comes packaged with instructions and the quick dry towel that I mentioned to bring the tanktop back to its normal state.

The Men’s Department is currently underway and you have until the 31st of June to swing by and grab a demo of this really neat product.

Now that I’ve got this under wraps I am going to call it a blog post and journey back into my creative place so I can work on what’s up next (plenty of things that I have to utilize so I don’t have to worry about it too much). There’s more items from The Men Jail coming as well as some new footwear by Native Urban that I am looking forward to wearing as well as more hair from Modulus!

Until our paths cross again, onto the next conversation…

[#349] Please Don’t Make Any Sudden Moves

You’ll never know the psychopath sitting next to you
You’ll never know the murderer sitting next to you
You’ll think “How’d I get here, sitting next to you”
But after all I’ve said
Please don’t forget

Beware…the Ides of March

I’ve got another nerd inspired post for you today. I’m combining my coverage of Skin Fair 2017 with some goodies from The Arcade Gacha Event to bring a sort of epic composition. I had entertained doing some kind of circus type session a while back but it was just difficult to pull the pieces together until just recently and when they did, I jumped on it!

Swallow has released or I could say re-released for their Skin Fair exclusive a skin based off of Jared Leto’s portrayal of The Joker from the Suicide Squad film. They had created one before this but it was only for the TMP brand mesh heads. This time it is for the CATWA line of mesh and bento heads. I can tell you that they’ve gone back and improved their original creation and it looks even more realistic. It’s really fantastic being a fan of the character and of the movie.

While you may be thinking…this photo has Catwoman in it and she was not even remotely a part of Suicide Squad. You would be right about that, however, she is an integral part of DC Comic’s and Batman’s “Rogue’s Gallery” so I thought I might combine the two after seeing S&P release the “Cat Lady” Gacha at the current round of The Arcade, which I wanted to give coverage to. Normally I have a love/hate relationship with these machines but the ironic thing is I wasn’t playing this one for me mostly and managed to pull the RARE items that made up the original “Cat” outfit. I was luckily able to get my assistant, Bianca, to throw it on and do the photo shoot with me.

I feel like it turned out nicely and what the vision in my head originally saw.

The outfit I am wearing is one of two Marketplace finds for this week; while I may not have one every week I like to try and find something to send my readers off to the MP to see what they can find if it isn’t the item I am featuring. [Phunk] made a Joker resembling costume/outfit that appeared in the middle part of the film. I think it is nicely detailed and normally I have reservations about wearing Standard Sizing with the Gianni body, this fit nicely with a little tuning of the alpha cuts. What you see is the purple crocadile trenchcoat and Arkham Asylum sweatpants, also included in the package is his cane that he uses. Kudos to [Phunk] for making a rather accurate product.

Also from The Arcade is the “Circus Rot” Two-Top Tent and Yoyo, who I affectionately refer to as the RARE “Unicycle Clown”. Remarkable Oblivion never disappoints with some of their array of creepy mesh items. If you haven’t been to The Arcade and this is your sort of thing…I urge you not to hesitate and get there before the end of the month before the round ends.

I’ve featured a bonanza of Gacha items in this post, another Circus themed machine located at the March round of The Chapter Four is made by The Silas Gallery. The “Le-Petit Cirque” set features some rather unique circus characters ranging from different types of clowns, mimes, animals, ballons, and more. I chose to use the “Clown” and “Pierrot” who is a mime to join my featured villains in this insane little project.

Lastly, my second Marketplace feature is the “Than Shoot Me” pose set from Vetrovian Sin. It has ties to a scene that can be found on the director’s cut of “Suicide Squad” and to which I gave a creative license with. It has a full scene included but I just needed the poses and the handgun to complete my vision.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this entry as much as I did creating it. Now that you know the in-depth details I am going to leave you with the credits and taxis to get to these really awesome events and stores. I’ll be back again with another installment but until then, stay stylish fellas and also you felines! 🙂
