[#609] Touch, Peel And Stand

 

Yes I’ve finally found a reason
I don’t need an excuse
I’ve got this time on my hands
You are the one to abuse

Days Of The New, ♫Touch, Peel and Stand♫

 

Sometimes when looking through things that come through as review packs from some of the partnerships I have there are things that I usually know that there will be a few things that will likely not end up on the blog because of my comfort zone but I’ve been trying more as of late to work outside of it. This blog is visual proof of that and I am not sure how I feel about it quite yet but my initial impression is favorable.

Hitting a small stride on the naughty side, I have some items from The Men Jail that definitely fall within the category of outside of my normal stylings. I’m going to start out with the “FiDa Shorts” by Cubura. This very small shorts accentuate a certain part of the male anatomy in a very defining way especially if choosing some of the lighter colors that come in the HUD from the FATPACK.

I have to say that idealistically they are a tad snug (you’re welcome for that nugget of info).

Another thing that I don’t normally feature in my posts is decor but the “Sadistic Pleasure Rack” by Short Leash helped me come up with an overall idea for what I wanted to do with the pic which was delve into the kinky side of the world. There’s plenty of tools (not really sure if that is the right terminology but oh well don’t shoot the messenger) hanging on the rack to ideally make for an interesting night. Yes it might only be for show but it’s very detailed and would be a great addition to someone’s “play room” if you catch my drift.

Cubura – FiDa Shorts

  • Original mesh
  • 24 colors to choose (Briefs and edges)
  • 4 button metal colors
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake), Signature (Gianni) and V-Tech (Maitreya) mesh bodies
  • Exclusive to The Men Jail until 03/28/19

Short Leash – Sadistic Pleasure Rack

  • Original mesh

  • Resizable item
  • Exclusive to The Men Jail until 03/28/19

From the Skin Fair I am wearing the “Vergil Skin” from Kooqla which is a store that I am vaguely familiar with but had never really tried their products before. I was pleasantly surprised by what I found with the detail of the skin as well as the range of skin tones (of what I am wearing tone 03). The body skin has just the right musculature.

In addition to that also gave myself an edgier look with the “Fade To Black Tattoo” by MooLoo Body Art. There are so many good things to say about this tattoo…such as I like the clouds and moon up by the collarbone/shoulder area as well as the portrait bust of one of my favorite authors, Edgar Allen Poe, adorned right on the back leg.

I really see wearing this tattoo on a more consistent basis in the near future which is not a usual modus operandi of mine (I do not usually wear tattoos all the time or for more than a few days). With each new release I continue to become more and more impressed by MooLoo and in my opinion the store can hang with the heavyweights like Dappa, Speakeasy and even Bolson.

Kooqla – Vergil Skin

  • Five tones (001-04 sold seprately)
  • CATWA head skin and Belleza body skin (also sold separately)
  • Exclusive to Skin Fair until 03/24/19

There were likely a lot of song choices I could have used to be the backing but I dug into my magical bag of music knowledge and pulled out a gem from the late 90’s. This song was likely one of the only songs that trended at that time for Days Of The New but at the time it got a lot of radio airplay as I recall having heard it a lot on the weekends when I could stay up longer and listened to music before falling asleep.

I feel like it has an element to it that fits with the scheme of the blog and who knows maybe it was written for situations such as this? Music unless the writer explicitly says what it is…is open to interpretation. Whichever the case is, it works for me and I’ve now hammered out another blog that I can put to rest and leave all of you with the style credits.

Time to relax a little and get ready for the weekend I hope everyone has some great things planned and until I return with some fun new items I hope everyone takes care. Laterrrrrrrrrrrr!

 

And now I stand, and I peel for more.
Won’t you touch me touch me, I won’t let it go

[#522] One More Day

 
For one more day, (They can’t take this away, it’s far from over) I’m not afraid to fall (We can’t stay in a place we don’t belong) For one more day, (They can’t take this away, it’s far from over) We try to save it all 10 Years, ♫One More Day

Sometimes blogging much like regular writing can cause blocks in creativity and for the last week I’ve been experiencing just that. Trying to find the right products and the ideas to go with them has been troubling and it’s something I am not fond of but it does happen.

With a week removed from the opening of The Men Jail, I finally found some inspiration in the form of the “Duct Tape Gag” by Short Leash. While it has a lot more functions than I will possibly ever use it for (it has built in RLV which I will sheepishly admit that even after being around the grid for as long as I have…do not know the slightest clue about what it does). The tape itself was my way to relay some of the words from “One More Day” by 10 Years, which serves as the soundtrack for this post. This is the first time that I’ve encountered any kind out mouth tape that wasn’t an applier so I really thought it was creative and worthy of getting a feature on the blog; while it may not be for everyone it is a fun component to add to photos and even role-playing situations for anyone who might be holding someone hostage (not something I encourage just to make it known).

Short Leash Dirt Tape Gag // Silver features:

  • 100% mesh
  • Included HUD includes phrases to put on tape
  • Resizable via HUD or by object editing
  • Normal and RLV enabled versions included
  • Black and Pink versions also available
  • FATPACK version with all three colors available
  • Exclusively @ The Men Jail until September 30th

Not long ago I blogged one of the two hairs from Modulus at The Men’s Department and I’m finishing that event up by showing you the other offering at the event named “Zander”. This side combed hair is not super long in length and does a good job of keeping the eyes free from being covered and that is something I prefer from hairs of a longer nature.

Keeping up with the trend of offering mirrored versions of the hair, “Zander” definitely gets a thumbs up from me; I even chose a color from the vibrants HUD for a change of pace and really enjoy how it looks. So much that I’ll re-visit it again in the near future with another current release.

Modulus Zander Hair features:

  • 100% original alpha mesh
  • Integrated color picker HUD
  • 40 different pre-existing hair colors (5 different HUDs)
  • Sold separately or as a FATPACK
  • Left and right sided hair versions
  • Exclusively @ TMD through Sep. 30th
Go&See has been releasing quite a few eyes lately and I am certainly trying to stay on top of it but as I mentioned at the beginning of the post it’s been difficult for me because of the bit of a creative block that I’ve been going through. One thing that I haven’t done in four years of blogging has been giving myself the chance to take a break. It sounds silly that I should just allow myself that but in the back of my head I would feel as if I am letting the brands that associate themselves with me down and these small little interruptions never last long; another reason would be that if I stopped completely for a period of time I am too afraid that I would not return to it even though it is a passion and love of mine. This latest release “Pose” is a part of the current crop of items that are a part of this months round of PocketShop. If you are are unfamiliar with this it is a HUD based shopping experience that takes place monthly much like events but a catalog is posted on their website and also through the HUD which you can purchase for free via there in-world HQ or by going to their marketplace store. The items that are featured are also shown in the HUD so that you know exactly what you are purchasing and buying is easy and can be done one of two ways: purchasing credits or allowing the HUD to use funds from your account. It is extremely safe and something I’d recommend as it is a very nice alternative to trying to get into an event right away on opening day. This can be done from the comfort of your home, skybox, platform etc…

Go&See Pose Eyes features:

  • 100% mesh eyes (for classic avatars)
  • Applier HUDs for CATWA and Genus Project
  • 10 styles to choose from
  • Exclusively sold through PocketShop until October 4th
The backdrop I am using comes from Paparazzi, it was originally from a previous round of Cosmopolitan and should now be in stores. The “Neon Hall” is very nicely constructed and has several points of illumination (which you can play with if you desire, which is a nice added option). At first I wasn’t sure how I wanted to use this backdrop but with the right ambiance it fit what I needed. However, my initial idea was to search for a location but nothing solid came to mind and after a bit of research I chose to go this route and I’m satisfied with the results and the mood I achieved with the “story” photo. I‘ve also decided to give my Gerald head another go with the latest skin release by Clef de Peau called “Hamilton”. I finally feel that with this skin I don’t look like I could be Russian (which there is nothing wrong with but not the aesthetic I am looking for). The skin was released not only for Vista but there is a CATWA version as well for anyone who is a CATWA purist and there are many out there who have not once strayed away from them (personally I like to try new things just to see if they can perform better than what I currently have). As I put a wrap on this post I realize that I probably do not share more about what drives the ideas behind these posts and hopefully I can get better at doing that. The fact that my brain can be complicated at times is an understatement and being able to completely divulge everything going on in my head is tough for me. There may be more to it and there may be nothing to it (yes that’s cryptic and I have been told I am good at that also). I would like to believe that my motivation for the inspiration of this post is not only from the song that provides the soundtrack but also the thought that sometimes all of us as humans tend to keep to ourselves and push things down. The more silent we are about them the more they grow into something that isn’t always beneficial to our overall well-being. Just talking to someone and knowing that they are there goes a long way and oddly enough sometimes living day to day is the best way to cope with situations around us. The interwebs are a powerful tool that if used properly can bring us all together or tear us apart and I personally opt to see everyone united and it’s hard but not completely hopeless. Just a thought or two thrown in here at the end, but check out the credits as I hope you’ve seen something interesting. Until the next time our paths cross, onto the next conversation…
