[#406] Something Just Like This

But she said “Where’d you wanna go?”
How much you wanna risk
I’m not looking for somebody with some super human gifts
Some superhero
Some fairy tale bliss
I just want something I can turn to
Somebody I can kiss…

Something Just Like This” – The Chainsmokers & ColdplayListen

Thought I’d have a little fun and felt really inspired by the pose that I am featuring in this entry so I decided to do a show a little nerd love and when I was churning my brain for a them it seemed the perfect one came to mind because of the different references through it of comic book characters that I’ve been a fan of since I was a youngster.

Last entry I was wearing the L&B Swear Low Tops and have enjoyed them so much I decided to put them into another look in a different color because they matched my outfit perfectly and being able to do that is a plus when it is sometimes hard finding the right footwear. Most importantly though I am featuring three items from my sponsors Image Essentials, {COLD-ASH} and MESANGE, the latter which are at The Men’s Department and We Love RP respectively.

Even though this is a male fashion blog as per usual I’ve also included the female credits for the adorable girl you see with me. I know that there are some gals that have viewed this site and maybe there are more than I know of but I try to be as consistent as possible. I’m going to leave you with those credits so I can get to working on the next adventure. Be well until our next encounter and stay stylish with a song in your soul.

HAIR⊱ Y-U: JASON “BLK” MENS @ TMDNEW

This hair is certainly unique which is what drew me to it. I think it reminds me of when you see someone get electrocuted in the cartoons and their hair goes every which way. That is what I would describe this hair as being. It’s really cool and unique as I already pointed out. There are several different color packs to choose from or you can get them all together in a FATPACK. It also comes with Classic Hairbases and Omega Hairbase appliers for the full look.

HEADCATWA – Daniel (Bento)
EYES⊱ MESANGE – Byzantium Eyes @ We Love RPNEW

Another exclusive from my sponsor MESANGE that’s out right now at the We Love RP event. These eyes are sold separately and there is not a FATPACK available at this time but there are 15 different colors to pick from. Each pack comes with the mesh eyeballs and a HUD to change the size of the pupil as well as OMEGA compatible appliers for those of you who have eyes that can use that styem.

EYEBROWS⊱ [theSkinnery] Hallford Brows @ TMDNEW
FACE⊱ Clef de Peau – Elias T1 @ TMDNEW
BODYBelleza – Jake

SHIRT//Ascend// Eric Bow tie Shirt – Print 5

This item is not brand new but it is recent within the last month or so and was a bit part of helping me create that nerd chic look. There are tons of styles for this button up tucked in shirt. It also has a matching bow tie that you can wear. Fitting for this item include Adam, Belleza, Signature, SLink Physique, and TMP mesh bodies.

PANTS⊱ {COLD-ASH} DEAN Chinos (CLASSIC PACK) @ TMDNEW

The latest from my sponsor {COLD-ASH} which has bestowed upon me this review copy. These classic casual slacks are an absolute perfect match for the Ascend shirt. Casual but cool these pants have 8 different colors to choose from and it also includes a belt that can be color changed via HUD as well so you can match accordingly. For those of you with Belleza, Signature, SLink Physique, and TMP mesh bodies, you’ll be able to give these stylish trousers a nice home in your closet.

This is such a fun pose and makes for a really lighthearted scene that I was able to put together. You can consider this pose two ways, it could be used as a couple pose but it also has the feel where you could find a really good friend to pair up with and snap some photos. All in all another fine quality work from my sponsors at Image Essentials.

[#405] My Love Is A Life Taker

This bottle of Steven’s awakens empty feelings
Like father, step father, the son is drowning in the flood

Say It Ain’t So” – WeezerListen

Some exciting things have been going on the last few days and I’ll get to those in a moment. It’s been a few since my last entry but sometimes I get these little lulls where either life gets in the way or my though process isn’t going the way I want and when I set up a scene or go to a location to photograph a scene I want it to be as close to what I’ve got in my head as possible.

It doesn’t always work that way.

There are a few repeat items from the last look but that’s mainly cosmetic stuff like skin and eyes. Those are things that often times do not change as much unless there is a new product out that you really like and want to feature.

Good fortune has found me at the n21 and FaMESHed events as I’ve been able to find multiple items to showcase which only usually lends itself to the male events I shop because I tend to find most of my things there. I am quite happy though to be able to display things from events you might not normally see get coverage. Branching out is definitely a highlight for me. Most people are familiar with the MadPea brand which holds hunts, and has different games that contain prizes and I took a venture to their sim and was able to find a great shot to work with so if there is anyone who is looking for an interesting spot to photograph then I definitely recommend MadPea City which you can find transportation too below.

One last thing before I leave you to browse the credits and that is I recently found out that I was nominated for a Bloggy Award. Which for me is a huge honor. The Bloggies is an award ceremony that will feature a who’s who of bloggers and I’ve been nominated in the category of “Best Humorous Blogger”. What makes this truly unique is that people can vote for their favorites so if there are any readers out there that follow the blog and enjoy it and want to help then you can cast your vote at The Bloggies Ballot Site (but keep in mind you have to be logged into a Google account to be able to vote. If you do show your love for These Conversations Kill, know that I will sincerely appreciate it and a big thank you goes out to those of my esteemed colleagues that nominated me to put me in this position.

With that I’m going to leave you with the credits from the scene and some of my thoughts on products that are new to this session. It’s been my privilege and see you again on the next adventure. Stay stylish with a song in your soul!

HAIR⊱ BURLEY – Craig @ n21NEW

When a hair brand releases a hair/hat combination and it looks awesome it gets me all sorts of amped up. I like wearing caps but most times they never work out with hair so I tend to just wear the cap with a base. Burley released this snapback mid-length hair combination. It comes with a style HUD that you are able to choose if the cap is facing the front of you or it is backwards. Also you can change the hat itself with a collection of colors and patterns. There are tons of color packs to choose from or you can purchase the full product for a pro-rated price. I myself picked up the variety pack which includes most of the main hair colors.

SHIRT⊱ Tonktastic – Cotton Tee (Bundles 5-8) @ TMDNEW

This item is a review copy that was sent to me by TonkTastic through my sponsorship with Hermony. Though Hermony is not doing official sponsors at the time he is gracious enough to send me things to review as I am a big fan of his brand and the work he’s done. This is the second time the two brands have collaborated on a shirt (the first being #1-4 that first appeared at the Man Cave event in August). 14 designs in each shirt that you can combine into one HUD if you choose to purchase them all and I encourage you to do so because these shirts are mega sweet. They come fitted for Aesthetic, Belleza, Classic Fitted Avatars, Signature, SLink Physique, and TMP mesh bodies.

SHORTS{COLD-ASH} CHINO Shorts
SHOES⊱ L&B Swear Low Top Sneakers – Male @ FaMESHedNEW

Lapointe & Bastchild’s Swear brand has been one of my favorites for quite a while. I’ve purchased shirts, jeans, you name it and I’ve gotten it because they are well made and fit really well. They’ve outdone themselves with their version of the timeless classic Low Top Sneakers. Included is a HUD with two pages of different color schemes to pick from that will give you plenty of wearability. For those of you with Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature and SLink Physique bodies you’ll be able to wear these kicks and show your cool factor wherever you are at. These are at the FaMESHed event until the end of the month!

[#404] Please Understand…

Curse my enemies forever
Let’s slit our wrists and burn down something beautiful
This desperation is leaving me overjoyed
With fading lights that lead us past the lives that we’ve destroyed

No, It Isn’t” – +44Listen

Hello once again! I’m glad to have any recurring readers and those who are new to the site, I welcome you to a place were fashion and visual art collide in a virtual world. It’s been a few days again since my last entry but it seems that the outside world has been needing my attention. I wanted to quick say that the people affected by the recent Hurricanes (Harvey and Irma) are in my thoughts. It’s also been the 16th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on our country. So many things going on for so many people.

I threw some things together from my time spent at The Men’s Department which is at the mid point of the current round as well as Men’s Only Monthly that concludes its current cycle on the 15th, which means it would be the best time to take a shopping break after you take a look at what I have put together.

As I was looking around in my various resources of finding new locations to explore and take photos in, I came across Ash Falls. Upon landing there it didn’t take me long to find a spot almost right inside the landing point which means I’m going to have to return there again to look around more for spots that I can set up another scene.

At times I find it difficult to add things when it comes to these posts but I try to give the best insight I can. I hope that those of you out there that are readers find something useful here even if it is just one thing. I’m going to leave that where it is and usher you to the credits below and start getting ready for the next look and scene. Until then stay fashionable with a song in your soul.

HAIR⊱ Modulus – Cory @ Man CaveNEW

This preview comes from my sponsors at Modulus. Cory is a style that goes great with shaved hairbases or also parted ones. I would have to say if I were to classify it as anything it would be a cross between punk trends or slightly weening towards hipster. With 5 different color HUDs to choose from or the option to get all of them you are definitely going to look smooth if you choose this ‘do. You can grab this when the new round of Man Cave starts up on the 15th (delayed a few days with consideration for those who might be affected by the storms).

HAIRBASE/BEARD⊱ .:cheeky:. 3 Days Beard & Hairbase @ M.O.MNEW
HEADCATWA – Daniel (Bento)
EYES⊱ MESANGE – DragonnWish Eyes @ We Love RPNEW

This item also comes from a sponsor of mine, this time MESANGE. These eyes are one of 3 different offerings you can find at We Love RP and taking a close look at these eyes they are very appealing with 15 great iris textures to choose from. You can purchase them separately or get them all together with an included HUD that you can use with Omega and LeLutka compatible appliers. If you do not have either of those do not worry the mesh versions are still in the package!

EYEBROWS⊱ [theSkinnery] Hallford Brows @ TMDNEW

Known primarily for their skins, this time [theSkinnery] is taking a shot at eyebrow appliers for the male side of things. There are 5 different styles to choose from, in which I chose the first style as it is what appealed to me most. It wasn’t super thin or super wild…just right by my standards and I am not at all disappointed with how it looks. These will work well with just about any skin and the Catwa appliers give you several different brow color options along with tintable white so if you need to match a certain color it’s easily achieved.

FACE⊱ Clef de Peau – Elias T1 @ TMDNEW

The most recent release in the CdP skin line, Elias comes in 4 different tones (1-4) and while normally I go with T2 I felt like taking a leap and going a tone lighter just to see what it would look like and I’m not really disappointed. I’m not much for the more tan tones because I’m just not a sun worshipper or spend lots of time outside so it would be odd to have a tan for me. The package includes not only the skin but eyebrow and body shapes for Catwa heads Daniel and Shaheen for you to choose from. Of course you’re always welcome to use your own as I did for this scene.

BODYBelleza – Jake

JACKET⊱ etham – Letterman Jacket – Camo @ FaMESHedNEW

It’s not often that I wear camo themed items in photos but it seemed to work out for the outfit I was putting together. This jacket is pretty solid and finding things that fit the Belleza body is a great thing (and it is also become more of a regular occurence). The base of the jacket is regular standard jacket material but the sleeves appear to be leather based which makes this jacket even cooler. It comes with a HUD to change the built in shirt so that you can mix it up a little bit. Sizes also included here are NX-Nardcotix, Signature, SLink Physique, Standard Fitmesh, and also TMP.

JEANS⊱ ::GB:: Cotton Stripe Pants @ M.O.MNEW

When I first came across these I thought they were jeans but as I closely inspected them I found that they were as the item describes, cotton stripe pants. They come available in Black, Blue (which is shown) as well as White and you can purchase them separately or together for a bargain price. I like the fit of these jeans on the Belleza body and am happy that Gabriel is now including them in their products as I’m very much a fan. Included are sizes for Signature and TMP. Sadly there is not one for SLink included in these which may disappoint those who have the Physique body and like Gabriel products.

SHOES⊱ OHeMO – Joel Sneakers @ M.O.MNEW

Sneakers…what can I say? I love sneakers and have a hard time saying no whenever I see a nice pair at an event. Men Only Monthly had several pairs that I enabled myself to pick up and these bad boys rock. I purchased the full pack and was treated to a HUD that I could change different parts of the sneaker with many different color swatches. Customization is a plus for me as I like to have control over what colors I am wearing if at all possible. While I am not largely familiar with this brand, I feel that with the quality of these sneakers I would encourage you all (as well as myself) to give them a deeper look. For you mesh body wearers it comes with sizes for Adam, Belleza, Signature, and SLink.

Animosity – Stephan (04) @ M.O.MNEW

Poses are what bring our creations more depth and life and I know that I have said on more than one occasion (I repeat myself far often than I would like to admit) that I always like taking a look at new pose makers in the world. Animosity is a fairly new brand and is partnered up with Imitation (a newer brand as well). This is one of two pose packs that have been released at Men Only Monthly. I like the style that this brand has to offer and seems that they also are making poses that are not as familiar as you sometimes do so out there. I realize that you can only move an avatar so many different ways but it is always refreshing to see something outside of that and I believe this brand has a great start.

[#403] I Am Loco

But sometimes I feel OK
And think I’m unique
You always try to critique
I turn my back on it anyway
Sucker! Punk-ass motherfucker!
I am loco!
Te falta un poco!
To get your ass in a choke-hold!

I Am Loco” – Ill NinoListen

After a small extended holiday weekend I am back with another look but this time I’m pretty much geeking out and doing the nerd thing. I enlisted some help from a friend (in this case victim) and got right to work. I think this would have definitely worked if I had placed it somewhere closer to the San Diego Comic-Con but not everything was in place at that time. I found some extra pieces create this idea as it was in a concept stage for a while. I feel like the theme holds up really well with the visuals albeit rather creepy.

After taking a look through some of my other work, it is safe to say that I have a bit of an obsession for a certain villain in the comics universe and most importantly the Clown Prince of Crime or in this case the Agent of Chaos version. I like to try to find ways to incorporate the visual when I can or come across items that inspire it as you’ll see in the credits below.

Several items are from the Marketplace but were integral parts of putting this scene together. I’ve also managed to get the credits for what my victim was wearing (though not everything is scene in the photos and for that I apologize). Of most of the comic inspired ones I have done, I feel that this one is certainly a favorite and came together as I had hoped. Now I am going to leave you with the credits below so you can maybe do some shopping of your own for photography or role-play needs. Be well and until the next adventure stay fashionable with a song in your soul.

HEADCATWA – Shaheen (Bento)

TEETH⊱ Mad’ – Dirty Mouth [Tongue+Teeth] ♯ Marketplace

What more can be said other than that an insane criminal is likely to have bad teeth. I wanted to get as close to accurate as I could in this scene with the character from the film. Scouring the marketplace I came across this applier for CATWA and after applying it, I was well on my way to acing the look.

BODYBelleza – Jake

OUTFIT⊱ *IS* Joker ♯ Marketplace

One of the most accurate renditions of this attire that I have seen out there on the grid and on the market. I really like this outfit and the fact that it is fitted for all major male mesh bodies makes it that much greater for fans like me out there. The one thing that was not 100% film accurate were the shoes but I cannot honestly tell you how many people would stare at shoes so that definitely gets a pass. Everything else is very spot on and it comes with a HUD with a makeup applier as well (One for Catwa, and also one for Omega respectively).

BACKDROP⊱ ISUKA – We’re All Mad Backdrop ♯ Marketplace

This backdrop is simply amazing. I had seen it around in various places but was unable to purchase it during the event that it was first a part of. I went to their main location and did not seem to find it but luckily I was able to catch it on the Marketplace and my scene was pretty much set. If you like using backdrops in your photos you seriously need to check out this store, they also sell really great tattoos as well. You’ll thank me later!

HAIRTableau Vivant \\ Cricket Hair
HEAD[GA.EG] Evan ♯ NEW

Even though this item is not mine, I can give a little bit of commentary on it. This is the second male bento head release by the [GA.EG] brand and it seems a little smoother than the previous one which was very rugged and more matured. This face is quite handsome and can definitely turn heads (when it’s not being disfigured that is).

FACEGo&See *Louis* Milk
MAKEUPZibska ~ Ballard Makeup

This makeup that was part of the THEREAFTER event (I own this as well but didn’t get the opportunity to blog it…so it’s good that someone else helped me with it) and is very well a good fit for the theme of my scene. Terrorizing people and giving them a bit of a makeover is exactly what an Agent of Chaos would do; I think this would also be the result of it.

BODYSLink – Physique MALE Mesh Body Release 1.2

SHIRTN-Uno – Victor Top // N 9
JEANSN-Uno – Victor Jeans // N 9

I passed these items on as a gift for helping me out for this shoot. They were part of a Gacha from the Men Only Monthly event the round before this current one. They only fit Signature and SLink bodies so I figured that since the victim primarily wears the SLink Physique body that it would work better for him.

[#402] I Wanna Go Back

And do it all over
but I can’t go back I know

I Wanna Go Back” – Eddie MoneyListen

Hello again people of the virtual world, I decided to do a mix of retro with the theme of this entry but more of a current styling. One thing I do like to do is cover all sorts of music when I come up with an idea. There may be some people (more than a fair share but I’m not for certain what my demographic is) may not know all of the artists that I choose and this gives them a chance to broaden their musical horizons.

Aside from trying to connect people with new music they might not have heard before or remind them of maybe a good time or memory, I also like to discover new brands and events to share with the people that view this small place on the net. I showcase the things I like and believe in whether it be style or a particular brand. It is exciting when you find something new and want to share it and that should be what it is all about.

This particular entry has several items from the Cosmopolitan bi-weekly event which is currently just about at the half-way point of this current cycle. There is certainly something there for everyone and I encourage you to go take a look and see what you might find. Of course please pick up demos for clothing because we all deserve to be happy with our purchases. Time for me to leave you with the credits of all this and I will catch you for the next one but until then stay fashionable with a song in your heart.

HAIRBASE⊱ -Labyrinth- ‘Buzzcut’ Hairbase @ CosmopolitanNEW

From time to time I like to rock a really close cut and with this latest release from Labyrinth that is possible. With 5 different tones (one of the being a white tintable version) via HUD (Catwa, Omega, and Signature) you’ll be able to spend what’s left of summer in comfort with a comfortable close style.

HEADCATWA – Shaheen (Bento)
FACESTRAY DOG – MARVIN – TONE 02

SHIRTSWAGG DADDY – @SWGG BIG B JERSEY GROUND

I discovered this brand by accident while browsing through FI*Friday and it wasn’t a risk to try them out for such a great price but regardless of that, this is a cool shirt. It has a style similar to a jersey shirt but has more elements of a tee. Sizes included for this bad boy are Aesthetic, Belleza, NX-Nardcotix, Signature, and SLink.

JEANS::K:: Slim Fit Jeans Homme Bleach

This item was previously blogged in an earlier post but I chose a different color denim because I thought they worked well with the style and idea that I was going for. Plus, they are high quality jeans that I think fellas should have in at least one style.

SHOES⊱ #VERYRARE “Storm” Vans #BLACK @ CosmopolitanNEW

One of my Cosmopolitan goodies, I couldn’t pass up the low-top because I wear them out in the real world and sometimes style carries over between them. These remind me a bit of some shoes that were a part of one of the very first Arcade’s but are fitted for the most current male mesh bodies. These are casual cool to the max and I won’t be surprised if I see people out there with these on.

SUNGLASSES#VERYRARE “SUPER RARE” Sunglasses #BLACK

The one thing I did not say with my thoughts on the shoes is that this is one of the newer brands on my radar and I’ve been seeing them at Cosmopolitan the last few cycles which is where these glasses are from. They have a marketplace in which not every item is up yet but I am sure will be soon. I have high hopes for this brand and really like the style of these glasses. They are reminiscent of a popular brand of shades that is world renown and I proudly wear them in this photo session.

BACKDROP⊱ [ Focus Poses ] School Hallway Backdrop @ CosmopolitanNEW

Let me tell you, this kind of brings back a few memories. It’s been a while since I walked through the halls of a school in any life. This backdrop build is very authentic and skillfully crafted. Putting together the scene for this was a bit of fun for me that I wasn’t anticipating. For a moment, I almost felt like I wanted to go back to those days…but only for a moment.

It makes me want to go away

Yeah, yeah, yeah…

Where Do We Go From Here?” – FilterListen

Lately it seems I’ve been running back to Netherwood to do shoots because there are just so many places I can go at the location but what helps matters is that if you are a paid group member, you can put down items to help your scene. In this case it was the really cool plane wreckage that I found on the Marketplace. While I am not going to officially credit the item, I am going to give you the link to it here so that you can check it out yourself and some of the other items available.

Most of my items in this entry are not entirely new or from current events but they are from recent rounds of events that make them semi-new. I just can’t label them as new because that would not be telling the truth. In case you were wondering what exactly I consider new when I tag it that way in the credits is if it is currently available at an event or is a recent main store release during the particular month. Once the item is no longer at the event or the month ends I do not consider it to be new.

Most of the outfits I have had on lately I’ve really enjoyed putting together and this one is certainly no different. I managed to find a great hair, awesome clothes, great tattoos, and a good setting to paint a picture. Keep in mind that you should always take demos before buying, broken record or not, I am covering all the bases so you everyone who reads this (male or female) enjoys a great shopping experience and bringing home great clothing and accessories (and furniture in some cases). Time to put this one to bed and ask that you take a look at the credits below and until the next adventure, stay fashionable with a song in your heart.

HAIR⊱ Modulus – Anwar Hair @ Man CaveNEW

When I was thinking of a way to describe this hair it took a while for me to come up with something good until I thought of the fact that it reminded me a little bit of Travis Barker at one point in his blink-182 career. In a way I supposed you could also consider it a punk rock style as well. Either way it is one that I really have enjoyed and it really helped define this look. It comes in several color packs or you can purchase them all for an adjusted price (which if you were thinking of more than one would it be that bad of an idea?)

HAIRBASE/BEARD⊱ .:cheeky:. 3 Days Beard & Hairbase @ M.O.MNEW
HEADCATWA – Shaheen (Bento)
EYESGo&See – Pond

Somehow I managed to let these slip past my radar. These Catwa enabled applier eyes are a bit on the brooding side which is why they appeal to me and made putting them with this look a good choice. There are 10 iris colors to choose from with two versions.

FACE⊱ STRAY DOG – MARVIN – TONE 02 @ TMDNEW
BODYBelleza – Jake
TATTOO⊱ ISUKA Struggle @ Man CaveNEW

When I saw this tattoo while I was browsing around during the opening of the current round of Man Cave I knew deep down I had to have this. A lot of times I tend to neglect tattoos which I know is not fair but sometimes it is hard to find looks to put them with. This was one of those times where I needed something to add a little extra edge to my look. There are three different opacity types and there are appliers for most major mesh bodies.

TANKTOPRazor/// Vice Sleevless Tee – LOS

This tank was a part of last months TMD and I just couldn’t find the right pair of pants to pair it with until I remembered I had the Washed Combat Joggers from REPRESENT which I’ll get to in a second. This graphic tank has regular and worn versions with a graphic that has several different color variations to it so that you can choose what works best for you. What made this promising is that it has a fit for the Belleza body which right now is hands down my favorite; it does come with other sizes as well, SLink, and Signature to name a few.

SWEATPANTSREPRESENT – Washed Combat Joggers “Navy”

I try not to rely too heavily on sweatpants or “joggers” as they are sometimes called but it seems my wardrobe lately has seen its fair share. Though it is good to be able to take a break from shorts or jeans and even dress pants because that kind of thing can bring you at a fashion impasse (or at least I think so). These come fitted for the usual mesh bodies but I would still suggest making sure you try them before purchasing just in case.

SHOES[VALE KOER] HEATUP SNEAKERS

Easily one of my top 5 favorite shoe designers as I’ve probably stated in past entries (I am more likely to say top 3 without hesitation). The fact that you can purchase a FATPACK for the price of what two single pairs of shoes might cost and have the ability to nearly unlimited customization makes it a no brainer. It is good that the Belleza body has the ability to work with SLink feet until designers start to release products for it outight. That way I can still wear the body and still continue wearing some incredible footwear.

Imitation – Miguel

When a new pose maker comes across my radar I usually check them out just to see if they are going to have something that is going to catch my attention/interest. I came across the Imitation brand while doing a walk through of FI*Friday (Fifty Five Linden Friday). The poses looked good and for the price at the time seemed like a great deal. I am really impressed with the brand and have since purchased more poses (I believe they are also a part of the Animosity Pose brand as well) that I’ll be using coming up in future posts. Keep an eye out for this brand if you are looking for nicely made poses for guys because they are done very well.

[#400] Leave Out All The Rest

After my dreaming
I woke with this fear
What am I leaving
When I’m done here?

Leave Out All The Rest” – Linkin ParkListen

Some time has passed and I’ve had time to process some things but first and foremost I wanted to pay tribute to a musician that has had an impact not only on myself but on countless others. Regardless of whether you like the music of Linkin Park it’s hard to deny that they hold a place in the annals of music legend. Creatively written lyrics and a combination of soft vocals and raw guttural screams they came a long way from the beginning of the rap/rock scene.

When the news broke that Chester had passed a large range of emotions had filled my head. It just seemed like so many people that I admired from a music fan standpoint were suddenly just disappearing. Unfortunately I won’t ever be able to see the band in concert but I will still have the music that was created at my disposal to listen to and remember fondly. My heart truly goes out to his family, friends, and bandmates. The world is missing one light that seemed to flicker bright even when shrouded in so much darkness.

There were a few songs I could have used for the theme of this photo shoot but I think what I chose as the final is the best to represent how I feel and many others as well. If you find yourself needing to talk to someone because you are having a tough time do not be afraid, there is always someone out there with an ear to lend even if you do not think they do. Full credits are below so I will let you dig into those but I also have to say that I did edit one of the record sleeves on the pose prop just in case you like it enough to buy it and see that it is not as it appears here. I will see you all again next time, until then stay stylish fellas.

HAIRBASE/BEARD⊱ .:cheeky:. 3 Days Beard & Hairbase @ M.O.MNEW

Another new round of Men Only Monthly has begun and there are a lot of goodies to check out including this hair and beard combination. You can wear either or both via a HUD (included is one for CATWA and one also for OMEGA applier capable heads). There are several hair color types to choose from so for those of you who wear different colors from time to time as I do, you’ll be represented.

JACKET::GB:: Loose Cotton Jacket Set / Khaki

This jacket was previously a part of last month’s UBER event, however, since that time Takuya Jinn sent out an update for those of you who did not buy it at the event. The update adds a hoodie you can wear with the jacket which I feel was a nice added touch. There are no specific sizes for mesh bodies on this but should work with just about all of them with the use of alpha cuts.

PANTS⊱ M.NA: Saudade @ ROMPNEW

Due to some of the issues I had lately it took me longer to get these put into a look. ROMP is in its last day of being open for this round but there is still time to run out and get these pants. There are lots of features to this as well as denim and leather textures to give you multiple looks. Sizes included for these pants include Belleza, Signature, SLink, and TMP male bodies. The FATPACK has a HUD with 3 extra textures as well as a color picker so that you can create your own flavor to the pants.

SHOES⊱ FLite.-NoMads – Fatpack @ n21NEW

Some time has passed since FLite has come out with a new release but at the n21 event they have come back with a vengeance. The NoMads sneakers are really cool. Reasonably priced and you get all the styles available in the HUD that is included. You really can’t beat it for a pair of shoes from my personal top 5 favorite shoe creators. Sizes included are (there are also sizes for women but as this is a male blog I’m only going to list the ones for the fellas) Belleza Jake and SLink male bodies.

::WetCat:: “Beat Junkie” Prop

Being that I am an audiophile (a lover of music) this pose/prop really caught my attention. It was originally at the Cosmopolitan event but I had purchased it just before the round it was in closed as I had almost forgotten that it was featured there. There are poses inside the prop for the gals as well as unisex poses and each of them are adjustable so you can get the best angle/look that fits you. This was one of the defining parts of this entry as it gelled with the emotion that I was going for.
