[#381] So You Can Make Me Whole

Then I see your face
I know I’m finally yours
I find everything I thought I lost before
You call my name
I come to you in pieces…

post381_01post381_02

It’s time for another new look from yours truly! I’ve visited some of the best shopping destinations and stores to bring you some great items along with another visual that was done with passion. Yes, the theme of this could be interpreted as a bit moody but I think it has a good place and a message that many things can heal wounds and emotional distress.

Last month DROT re-released a collaborative with C.A.M.O. and it was first available at Men Only Monthly, this was the first opportunity that I’ve had where it fit into a look I was trying to put together. The “Fisherman’s Beanie” is a hat with built in hair that you might find a fella wearing it that works on the docks. It comes with not only with a HUD to change the color of hair you’ve purchased but also one to change the color of hat you wish to wear. It works well with just about any hairbase, I’m just using the one that came with the No. Project’s “Nuel” skin because it is Catwa compatible and it is easy to take on and off, making it very versatile.

Also from DROT is the “Tintable Mesh Beard” that is up for sale at the Signature Event until the end of the month. This beard is re-sizable via script and can bed colored to your desired tone by editing it with your build/edit objects tool. Considering that I wear my Catwa head a majority of the time and feeling that this beard would fit better on a Signature head, all things considered it works out pretty well with a little finessing. If you are a fella that is into thick and bushy facial hair then you’ve got a great product here.

ManCave is a new event that just started that is guy-centric and features clothing, skins, furniture and accessories all for the discerning male. I found a pretty good amount of things from this event so it tells me that it is off to a good start and I’m looking forward to seeing this progress into a great place for us men to visit each month.

{Cold-Ash} is at it again with a seasonal upgrade to it’s “MONTANA” tee. There are three new design types that you can grab to step out in casual style this summer. Consisting of striped, dotted, and marl patterns, “MONTANA” is sure to keep you looking great in any casual setting or just lounging around at home. This re-release comes with fits for the leading male mesh bodies (BELLEZA, SIGNATURE, SLINK, and TMP) and you can get each of these patterns all in one as a FATPACK. Thank you to {Cold-Ash} for providing a review copy to their bloggers, as a long time fan, shirts like this are the type I like to just about live in on a daily basis.

It’s been a while I brought the SLink Physique body out but for this look I did it with a good reason. It helped make my look fit just right as the jeans I am wearing did not have a GIanni option to them and I liked them so much I wanted to feature them. At The Men’s Department this round, Razor has released the “Denim Jeans w/ Studded Belt”. It was even hard trying to pick out the style of denim but in the end the “Stonewash” won out. Besides the studded belt, the other feature that I like best about these jeans is that they have a back pocket with a wallet and chain attached. I can’t quite say why but this kind of style has fascinated me for a long time. This particular jeans look like they’ve been put through the ringer and could be the wearer’s favorite go to pair of jeans.

You can also find the Semller “Two-Plat Sneakers) at TMD. These comfortable kicks have a great feature where you can choose the width of the sole of the shoe which you don’t generally see in footwear on the grid. Normally you get one or the other but with the included HUD you can change them whenever the mood strikes. Just like usual, I’ve purchased the FATPACK of these shoes so I can maximize the potential of styles available.

MESANGE has also been gracious enough to send a review copy of their “Kitej Eyes” which are for sale at The Chapter Four event. Fifteen different iris tones await those who are looking for something different and exciting for their eyes, which are omega applier compatible as well as the included standard mesh eyes. What I like most about this brand is that is is never the “same old same” you often find with eye makers. The brand truly gives something different and refreshing with every release.

Very rarely do I find jewelry that I like and want to feature but for this look it is a little different. FLI. recently released the “Nolex Ring” at their mainstore location; this ring comes in three metal tones (Gold, Platinum, and Rose Gold). This ring has a design similar to a watch ring but instead of having a timepiece on top it has a multitude of diamonds set in. It has a bit of flash but I don’t feel it is overly done to where it draws attention away from the rest of the outfit.

I encourage you to take a look below at the full styling credits and take a trip to the stores and events featured in this entry. Before making a purchase you should always try demos to ensure your total satisfaction. I look forward to bringing you another new style very soon and as always, 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!

Another new week is about to start and I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend. Plenty of things to try and cover this week so looks like I better get going on it so that all of you are in the know! Also welcome back to another blog post and for those of you that are first time readers welcome, I hope you check out some of the other recent entries and find something that appeals to you.

When Exile had their hair sale last month before their “reboot” of the main location, I picked up a small handful of new hairs and I’m finally getting around to featuring one of them in look. I thought with the theme I used for this entry that it was only fitting to use the “Machinehead” hair. It’s a nice messy look that is not too long nor too short at the same time.

I was finding it hard to find a skin that I could use with the [SIGNATURE] Gianni head (which is now updated to Bento for those of you who did not know). At the Signature Event, Clef de Peau has “Calvin” for sale. I have always been a fan of CdP but I’m reluctant to say that I prefer their skins on the Catwa head. Just because I feel that the Gianni head even now that it is bento compatible is shaped very strangely even with the included shape. I’m wearing T2, which is my usual go to with the CdP brand.

OUTLIER is also a contributor to this round of the Signature Event. They have the “Rebel” jeans which I am wearing the “Stone” version of them. I love the texture of the denim on these and there is also boxer shorts built in as well to make them look even more realistic if you are not wearing a shirt. The only size included in the product is the Gianni/Fitmesh version so for those of you that do not have a Gianni body they will not work for you, which is why I always encourage you to try the demos of all clothing before making a purchase. I’ve learned in the past from being hasty and buying things before trying them.

MESANGE has two new exclusive eyes available at We Love RP; for this look I am wearing the “Ashtar Eyes” which have 15 different iris textures you can pick from. Normally with my Catwa head I just use the eyes that come with it but with the Gianni head not providing eyes with theirs I had to use the included mesh eyeballs which needed a slight bit of adjusting.

You know I couldn’t leave out an item from TMD, which it seems with their anniversary round going on this month there have been a lot of goodies being featured here from the event. I haven’t really played any of the Gacha machines as I’ve been trying to lay off of them for the time being. With that said, I have a great shirt in this look from {Cold-Ash} and it is the “REECE” henley shirt. I’ve been graced with a review copy of the “Classic Pack”. This slightly unbuttoned short sleeve is great for casual wear and for summer wear. There are two different versions in the pack (regular and slim waist) for the Fitmesh, Gianni, and TMP bodies; there is only one size for the SLink Physique.

Returning in this look from previous blogs are the “LIFTOFF TRAINERS” from Vale Koer and also the pose I used was from the set “Kai” by Image Essentials.

I look forward to bringing you coverage of the new Belleza male mesh body “Jake” in the very near future now that it has been released to the public. I also have some things from a few other events that I’m just seriously excited to show you as well.

Now that you know just about everything that went into making this entry possible, I encourage you to look down below to find the taxis for locations of the stores/events that are featured in this look as well as the location where the photos were taken. Until the next time as always, stay stylish fellas!

The weekend is almost coming to a close so I hope that you all have rested well or at least enjoyed it with whatever you did. Welcome back again, I really feel like this look/photo session turned out exactly how I wanted it to. Grabbing things from FaMESHed, the SIGNATURE Event, The Men’s Department and an up and upcoming event called The Mens Zone were integral for all this to come full circle.

Rarely ever it seems do I use a country western song as a theme but considering this is my second one in a row I can at least retain my sense of having eclectic music taste. I try to cover all the bases when I can and when the feeling is right and fits an idea I’m trying to go with. I have to say I believe the overall message of these blog post is about doing soul searching when you feel you might be a little lost down the roads of your life. Sometimes we question the roads we take and if the path we are going on is the right one. Our paths are not 100% laid out for us and it is up to us to do what we can within reason to make them reality.

The Men’s Department has a new skin release from the HERMONY brand which is solely for the CATWA brand of skins and compatible with the base skins that come directly with the [SIGNATURE] Gianni body. “Vaugnh is a very handsome gentleman yet is also rugged. There are several tones to choose from but keep in mind again this is only the face applier and that you have to have a Gianni body for it to look seamless. Inside the package you also get an added HUD with 6 different beard appliers that are tintable however you like. You can also choose between the regular applier or a browless version for those who prefer their own specific style of eyebrows.

To accompany this skin I am wearing the “Lorenz” Shape directly from Reach, which is up for sale at The Dark Style Fair 4. This shape was made with the “Vaughn” skin directly in mind and I really think the pairing is great. This is one of three releases you can find at the fair; I encourage you to check it out not only for this particular brand but for some of the other great items available there.

Jadis Ashland and the MESANGE brand are currently celebrating 1 year of being in the eye making business. Congratulations to you and I look forward to continue using your products. In this entry I have the “Theral Eyes” which are currently available at The Chapter Four. With 15 different iris tones to choose from there is something there for everyone and if you have trouble choosing? Well that’s why it’s economical to purchase the BEAUTY Pack and get them all. Included in the individual packages, you get the regular mesh eyeballs as well as a HUD for those with omega applier enabled eyes. With the BEAUTY Pack you get all of the eye colors in one easy to use HUD.

{Cold-Ash} is back with more items this month at various events and all of them are excellent. I have been honored with being able to review the “SAWYER” denim shirt that is their exclusive item at the SIGNATURE Event. This item is a rolled up denim shirt with an optional low neck shirt built in (which you can also remove via the included HUD). The denim textures that you can choose from in the aforementioned HUD are great and you get a really good choice of colors for the shirt as well if you decide to wear it. The sizes available for this item are for [SIGNATURE] Gianni, SLink Physique, Standard Fitmesh, and TMP body styles.

Fitting the theme of being a hard-working cowboy, I found the best pair of jeans for this situation. It took me forever and a day to get into the FaMESHed event but let me tell it you was well worth it for the “Destruction” jeans from L&B Swear. This pack of jeans has it all from two different sets of grunge and beat up denim styles (including the muddy version I am wearing) as well as a gift of regular denim in the HUD for the Fatpack. There is a great chance that I’ll be getting a lot of use out of this product in the time to come.

To complete this look from items that are new and part of events, I have the “Reno” leather cowboy hat that you can pick up at The Mens Zone event. I chose to go with brown leather because normally my go to would be black but I wasn’t really looking to go with a good cowboy or bad cowboy look. I just wanted a normal everyday sort of look and brown fit that perfectly. This was my first time going to The Mens Zone event and I’m not sure if it is just getting started but many of the booths were empty. I do hope though that they fill up or find a way to bring in designers because there truly are not a lot of good events for us guys other than TMD and Men Only Monthly. It’s fact not myth that we like to shop too, just getting that out there!

I encourage you to take a look down below for the full style credits and the taxis for each event, store, and or marketplace item. You won’t regret that you did, but you don’t have to take my word for it. That’s all for now but until next time as always, stay stylish fellas!

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!

[#348] All Hell Can’t Stop Us Now

It has to start somewhere
It has to start sometime
What better place than here?
What better time than now?

Guerilla Radio” –  Rage Against The Machine  ♫Listen

It’s now on to entry #3 in These Conversations Kill’s coverage of Skin Fair. This time not only is there a skin but also some ink for those of you who love using your skin as an art canvas.

I’ll start though with the very top of the body and work my way down, seems like the best way to break things down.

At The Crossroads event there is a new release by hair creator “tram”. You can purchase the G0220 style with three different HUD packs to choose from. I thought this style went best with the look I was going for as it seems to fit the different asian trends I’ve noticed lately. A longer pulled back style with some curls left in the front and a small little tail in the back. I really like it along with the textures and I have a feeling that it may have some use in future works.

This is also the third release from MESANGE from their exclusives for the We ❤ RP event. The “Tikal Eyes” have 15 different options for you and for those of you with Omega enabled eyes a HUD to change them as well as the standard mesh versions. Each eye has different iris/pupil sizes for you to stylize yourself.

Modulus’ “Jae-Sun” skin is the second I’ve featured of the three exclusives from Skin Fair. I chose to stick with the included shape and hairbase for this one because it was the best fit for what I was going for. I also chose to use the full eyebrow/beard combination as well for a little more rugged looking assassin. Gives a bit more of an “edge” if you get my drift.

The trend for tattoos on the grid these days seems to lean towards using different images and kind of mashing them up to create a theme. Personally I’m not sure that I understand it but it does tend to make for some cool looking ink and that’s what I feel Dappa has done here. “The Alchemist” grabbed my attention the moment I saw the advertisement. From the image of the knight on the left pectoral to the King Arthur type theme, it was just something I had to have. Provided in the package are the standard tattoo layers and then HUDS for various body types with fresh and faded opacity levels. It’s a must have tattoo and a high favorite of mine in all of the ones I’ve seen offered lately.

Today is the final day of the February/March round of the Signature Event. I’m happy that I got this in even if it is at the 11th hour of sorts but I had to feature the Gabriel bento enabled gloves. There are two versions for sale but I went with the regular version. As much as the version with the ring on the finger called to me, I thought this was best for the idea I was running with.

I have at least one more item to show you before the current round of Men Only Monthly ends on the 15th to restock for the March/April round that begins on the 20th. [Gild] who was once a part of Gabriel has struck out on their own and is off to a good start with some of the items I’ve seen from their brand so far. I’m wearing the “Soft leather easy pants” in the checkered version. I thought that I would do something different since it’s way too easy to just wear a pair of black leather pants and with this being offered it was a refreshing change of pace. Sizes included in the package are for Gianni, SLink Physique, and TMP body style. Sadly there are no standard or fitmesh sizes for this product.

For the backdrop and pose, I’d like to give honorable mention to both MINIMAL and Q-Poses. They helped make this head easier in creating. I picked up the “Illusion Background” from Uber and “The Warrior” pose set was originally available at Cosmopolitan but you can currently pick it up at their main location or at the current round of 2nd Level.

Time for me to get to the next adventure but I hope you like what you’ve seen and head out to these locations for these great items or for items that peak your interests. Until the next time, stay stylish fellas!

[#345] You Got Caught In The Sun

What if I missed you
you got caught in the sun
What if I did something
never to be undone?

Caught In The Sun” –  Course Of Nature  ♫Listen

While I’m patiently waiting for nicer weather to return in the real world, I thought I might warm up my spirits and some of yours (those of you who live in cooler climates). I decided to take a trip to one of my favorite beach type sims, “Baja Norte” and catch a few rays. It was the perfect reason to pull out one of my finds from the Signature Event which is still running until the 13th of March. Time for some details about this little fun in the sun expedition.

As I said before, I was at the Signature Event where I picked up Exalted’s “Swim Trunks” I chose the v7 version because it seemed nice and tropical and would go well with being out on the water. Being that this item is being featured at the Signature Event, it only has a size for the [SIGNATURE] Gianni body. The fit is nice and you only have to hit a couple ticks on your alpha HUD and everything is perfect.

Being that this is the only new item that is an item of clothing I am wearing the “Bane” tattoo from ARISE that is now at The Chapter Four. It features an iconic leg sleeve featuring some of the best comic villians you can find. It has regular standard tattoo layers, Omega appliers, and a TMP installer for those of you with that style of mesh body.

I am also wearing a more recent release from FACADE called “Cruel Beauty” that was originally at the Love Interruption event on the Depraved shopping sim.

MESANGE has another great set of eyes for you that have just been released at this month’s round of We ❤ RP. The “Bering Eyes” come in 15 different iris colors and have the standard mesh eyes and also appliers for Omega enabled eyes. I thought that a bluish tone would fit well with this theme as well and the water would bring out the best in them.

For hair I went back and decided to give another look at the “Mose” hair by +elua+. I thought it fit perfect with the beach/surfer look that I had envisioned in my head and I think it fit particularly well for it. Also apart of my features that I did not credit due to unavailability is the -Valiant- “Stango” beard and hairbase. I’m hoping that the creator puts their Hair Fair ’16 releases out at their store but being that is primarily furniture and decoration items the chance is very slim which is a shame for those of you fellas that missed out on it and would like to still get it.

I am proud to announce that one of my sponsors, Reach Shapes, has released their Grayson shape. It is made for Catwa “Daniel” Bento heads and looks best with the [Bay Harbor] “Matt” Skin which you’ll find a link for down in the credits.

Time to go get back and finish up catching some sick waves before it’s time to head off on another adventure. Get ready for a wave of Skin Fair ’17 exclusives coming your way. I’m looking forward to giving you a look at them.

As always until the next time, stay stylish fellas!
