“It’s All About The Pentiums” – “Weird” Al Yankovic ♫Listen♫
I decided that I’d dip into the nerd pool for this post and channel some of the inner me that was lurking around. I found some really cool items to put this look together, with some of them new and some of them just items I had laying around. This turned out to be a really fun and inspired shoot from one of the most hilarious parody musicians of all time, “Weird” Al Yankovic. I’m not going to be like one of thos Chat Room Yakker’s he talks about so I’m going to get right to the breakdown of what you see here.
⊰HAIR⊱ lock&tuft – ruined
This item first showed up at a previous round of ROMP. While it ended up getting lost in my closet for a moment, this nice neck lenght hair was just the thing to start creating my hunky nerd look. The box comes with two different versions (the one you see here and one with a blindfold with written words you can choose via a HUD). There are also three color packs but can also be bought as a FATPACK if you can’t pick just one and save yourself some money.
⊰HEAD⊱ CATWA – Shaheen (Bento) ♯ ☆NEW☆
⊰EYES⊱ Go&See * Land * ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ M.O.M
The second of three eye releases from Go&See that you can check out at Men Only Monthly. This 10 eye color set is mostly earth tones (shades of brown) but with a little bit of blue and purple thrown in as well. These eyes are for Catwa eyes only so for those of you that aren’t using those and like these eyes you may want to look into the Catwa eyes.
⊰FACE⊱ ::LV:. Nathan – Pearl/02 ♯ Marketplace
Normally I’m not fond of buying skins from the Marketplace nor am I comfortable with it but I’m slightly familiar with Lee Valentine’s work and saw and adverstisement for this skin that sent me to look at the demo for it and when I found out it was compatible with Stray Dog body appliers it was all but a done deal. I really just like how this looks with the Shaheen head and the shape that I also found on Marketplace which I’ll get to in a moment or so.
⊰BEARD⊱ Beausame // Beard V23 ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ TMD
As I was browsing through The Men’s Department I came across the set of beards by Beausame and thought that maybe it would fit my look if not just for this post but for more day to day purposes. I had also considered using this beard for a John Wick inspired photo session which may still happen but we’ll have to see how things flow creatively.
⊰BODY⊱ Belleza – Jake
⊰SHAPE⊱ HF – Shape Edward ♯ Marketplace
From the mind of fellow blogger, Jos Crumb, this shape was somewhat of a test for me because I’m really picky about things like this and with there not being an available demo to see what it might look like with different skins it was something of a gamble but I feel it paid off. I like the facial features as well as the body part of it as well as I’m not super tall nor am I built like a tank. I think that with Mr. Crumb being a blogger he understand things a bit better so kudos to him. Check out the link to this item up above but be warned there are limited quantities and also visit his MP store for other excellent shapes.
⊰SHIRT+TIE⊱ -Belleza- Nathan Shirt ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ M.O.M
After the celebrated release of the Jake body, Tricky Boucher and the Belleza brand are at it again. The “Nathan” shirt (that comes with options for tucked and untucked as well as a tie in three colors) is just the thing for the nerd in us all or just someone who wants a cool dress shirt. I couldn’t decide which of the colors to choose so naturally I bought the FATPACK because it was a great deal and now I have options for when I need something like this for a social setting or even another photo session.
⊰JEANS⊱ [Deadwool] Broberry Jeans – Revenge EXTRA ♯ ☆NEW☆
The collaboration between [Deadwool] and Blueberry that has the world in an uproar. Two different versions made for males and females, these jeans really do kick butt. There’s a regular leg and also rolled up leg version for those who may want to wear hi-tops with their jeans without the fear of having them clip through (and we all know that’s a bit annoying). With sizes for Belleza, Signature, SLink, TMP and Standard Fitmesh it covers just about all of the bases for mesh bodies and takes the excuse of getting them off the table. Also if you feel adventurous and dare to buy the FATPACK, you get an extra pair of jeans not sold seperately. I chose the WASH version there is also a standard denim version which is almost tempting enough to go back for…maybe I will!
⊰SHOES⊱ [Deadwool] Chase Sneakers
An item I’ve previously covered on the blog but thought it would be great to pair them with the Jeans to stay within the same brand and also because they look pretty cool together. That’s about all that I have to say about these shoes other than go check them out!
⊰GLASSES⊱ BALACLAVA – Kip Glasses (Black)
One of my old standby pair of specks, they come with several options (one with the tape and one without) and have gotten plenty of use over time and felt like a great addition to my nerd look.
⊰OFFICE⊱ [Toiz] Gray Office Skybox
Once a Gacha machine featured at Shiny Shabby by the now re-branded CMYK store, this office skybox was the perfect setup for what I wanted to do and it was already just sitting in my cluttered mess waiting to be used. Sometimes gacha items end up going into the abyss to die but it was great being able to pluck it out and give it life in this photograph.
⊰DECOR⊱ [Bad Unicorn] Shoreditch Startup ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ TMD
Seeing this set at The Men’s Department really made my day. I thought it was super detailed and was the cherry on top of the sundae with the setting and theme I was going for. What’s cool about this set (which you can buy in pieces but it’s way too awesome to not just buy the full set) is that you can change the clock on the computer. The chair which you can see a little bit in the photo has poses in it which I’m sure at some point I will because it’s so well made.
IE – Mellow V1 (5) ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Square 1
Several posts ago I featured a pose from the V2 set of the Mellow poses from Image Essentials. Both sets have varying sit poses that can be used in a multitude of ways (such as on furniture that does not have poses). You can take a look at the pose sets at the Square 1 Event which the transporation to is located just above this paragraph.
I hope you’ve enjoyed viewing this entry as I did creating it and maybe it will inspire you in some way. Take a trip to the locations of the stores and events featured here and have a great shopping experience. Until the next time, stay stylish fellas!
