[#625] We Only Come Out At Night

Let the Pose Fair madness begin! My last post for the month of April featured but one of the many great pose items from the fair and I’m starting (It’s gonna be) May with another. Tomorrow the fair will open to the general public and everyone will be wanting to get in on all the fun and creativity that can be had.

The hardest part once again is that I didn’t have a soundtrack for this post before I took my photo and that lends sometimes to going through tons of different things that I personally own as well as scouring YouTube for possibilities and I narrowed it down to about three but I’m going to keep the ones I didn’t use to myself because they will potentially be used in other future posts.

Salacity’s contribution that I found to be really cool is a window backdrop complete with curtains, ledge and a surround which can be changed between three different scenes (midnight, stormy and sunrise) and I did try them all as I was initially setting up my shot but much like the song I chose, I went with midnight. In reality I tend to be a night owl and as such most of my creativity happens during the hours that most people are asleep. I paired it with the male pose set that is meant to be a companion of the backdrop; there is also a female version and as a whole I really think all of these releases could inspire a lot of great photos.

Salacity – Window Seat Backdrop

  • Original Mesh
  • 3 different backrounds (midnight, stormy, sunset)
  • Compatible with Window Seat Female and Male pose sets
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair starting 05/04/19

Salacity – Window Seat Male Poses

  • Bento Poses
  • 5 different poses (mirrors included)
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair starting 05/04/19

A new event just started today called Anthem and one of the proprietors of it is Mikel Monk who is also associated with The Men’s Department, one of my all time favorite events since the beginning of such things to exist. I felt like I couldn’t go wrong trying to get in there during the middle of the night (even if it might get me a talking to). From what I did see, there are lots of great items and a few of which came home with me so you’ll likely see them this month unless I forget and then it’s a tragedy.

The event also marks a new release by my longtime brand partner, Cold-Ash, who is proudly bringing to consumers the “TANNER Open Hoodie”. When the notice came in of the new item and I saw what it was, I am not going to lie I became really excited. Spring and the beginning of Fall are probably my second favorite times of year outside of summer weather wise. I can go out and not have a clunky winter jacket on and normally am wearing a hoodie of some sort (I own many of them rl).

The Fatpack of Tanner comes with two options for the hoodie (with or without shirt option) and I should have been a bit bolder and gone without the shirt but at the same time I didn’t feel the photo deemed for that. There are plenty of basic color choices between both the hoodie itself and shirt to make a lot of different combinations and I think that will be enough of a selling point in itself because if there are a lot of people out there like myself, I am a fan of choice and to have many is by far the best option.

Cold-Ash – TANNER Open Hoodie (FatPack)

  • Original Mesh
  • HUD Contains 15 hoodie colors & 9 shirt colors
  • 2 versions (With or Without Shirt)
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake) and Signature (Gianni) mesh bodies
  • Exclusively at Anthem until 05/30/19

Finalizing my wardrobe are two items from Native Urban (one of which a current release, the other a previous release that I really have wanted to wear). The “Guetta Snkrs” are currently at Access for another few days so for anyone who really likes a good classic hi-top shoe should check this out ASAP but do not worry if you can’t make it to the event, they’ll be placed in the store shortly after it ends. The amount of colors and faces you can change are everything I mentioned earlier in my writing. Styling for this shoe is almost infinite and I could wear it just about every day with a different color scheme and never have the same one unless I wanted to.

Going with a casual look as I am wearing a hoodie, I went with the “Wezol Joggers”. I knew that doing it this way would make it easier for me to wear the hi-tops without clipping and it worked well with what I am wearing on the upper part of my body. My goal is that if I can make something work without having to make slight edits (because I want to ensure the integrity of the item remains intact) and can achieve it then I’m a happy guy.

Native Urban – Guetta Snkrs (All Colors)

  • Original Mesh
  • HUD includes 25 colors with 11 customizable parts
  • Unisex Item
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake), Maitreya (Lara) and Signature (Gianni) mesh bodies
  • Exclusive to the Access event until 05/07/19

During the course of this month I’ll be covering Pose Fair obviously and be throwing in bits and pieces of events that I’ve gone to and shopped. I’m looking forward to the kinds of things that will come from this as I recall mentioning that poses are one of the most important things to a photographer. They help tell the stories sometimes more than the decor or clothing we have on and around us.

I also want to give a thank you to everyone behind The Men’s Jail event from the owners, to the blogger manager as well as all the designers I’ve had the pleasure of featuring during my time as part of the event. It was invaluable to me and hopefully once I’m able to have more time we’ll be able to work together again.

[#620] Be Alright

Equal10 recently opened their April round and it’s definitely a good place to find some cool clothes and accessories for both men and women. Modulus has a new hair there that I was rather excited about getting my hands on as it is based off of a movie character that I am a huge fan of. There was definitely no way that I was going to let this one get away from my styling.

“Wick” is inspired from the character of John Wick (portrayed by Keanu Reeves in 3 different installments of which the 3rd has not been released). This is the first time that Chucky Hollak has tried his had at having a style which a completely parted middle and I think it’s fantastic when pairing it with a great hairbase. Of course I’m mostly a fan of black hair coloring but I can see myself trying out different tones with this hair.

Much like the last blog, my wardrobe consists of items already in my closet but the recent release collab between Tonktastic and Hermony is still really fresh. I experimented by wearing it without either version of the hood to see if it would work and to me I consider it a success and adds even more versatility to an already great article of clothing.

I also have to mention the new “James” skin by The Skinnery that my drinking buddy Mike is wearing. It’s a CATWA only applier and is intended for the Daniel head but he’s rolling with Victor and it still looks good to me. I think though that I’d be interested in seeing what it might look like without the beard (which is how the skin comes) but regardless it’s a good look.

By now it’s likely been noticed that I haven’t done much in the way of features in the last few posts but don’t worry, it’s not something I’m going to do away with because I feel like that is one of the things that combined with my thoughts on what I’m blogging gives this site it’s uniqueness. I have just not put together any scenes with items from sponsored stores or events but there will be more soon, I promise.

On that note, I’m going to turn this over to the credits so if anyone has some free time they can take a shopping break if there’s something here they like. Until the next time we meet I’ll catch you on the flip!

[#607] We Don’t Know

 

Oh we don’t know the roads that we’re heading down
We don’t know if we’re lost, that we’ll find a way
We don’t know if we leave, will we make it home
We don’t know, there’s hope, then we’ll be okay

The Strumbellas, ♫We Don’t Know♫

 

One of the coolest things about a virtual community like Second Life is that creators really put a lot of effort into the items they make (well the ones that are legit and don’t take from other hard working people but that’s an entirely different story). Many skin makers tend to pay homage in ways to some of their favorite celebrities or pop culture icons when making face skins.

The proof of that can be seen in Birth’s latest male offering that is a Skin Fair exclusive named “Mr. Lee”. I likely don’t have to tell you who this skin is patterned after but just in case I can at least give you a hint: He is a legendary martial artist who passed away way before his prime and his son Brandon (who is in one of my favorite movies of all time) did as well in 1993 during filming of that movie.

The level of detail in this skin is remarkable as is the quality of the body applier. I would say that personally I would wear more Birth skins (as I also love their facial hairs) but their range of skin tones doesn’t cover what I feel represents me. Their skins are awesome but as an every day wear it just isn’t in the range that I’m used to, however, it is for a lot of people as I know most skin creators work when I see people out on the grid I know who created their face. Yes that sounded a lot less weird in my mind but I hope it makes sense.

This release has 7 different tones which I am also providing a skin key for so that you can see what is offered. Also keep in mind that this is a Catwa applier which I am wearing on the “Daniel” head. Each tone applier has options for eyebrows, hairbase and beard combinations with different hair tones for all three. The body appliers which are sold separately also have options for bare skin or two different options of body hair also with the same tone colors for body hair.

Also from Skin Fair is the very discreet “Infinity Tattoo” from Reviver. This is a store that is new to me so I am just learning about it as I go but I chose to wear this ink because I enjoy the message it has to it which is essentially “love forever” in the form of an infinity symbol with a feather and the word “love” on the top and bottom.

Such a great message really and it doesn’t have to even mean love for your significant other, it can be love for your parents or family or even for yourself because it all starts there. While it may be cliche to say…love truly starts with yourself and if you can’t love you then there’s no way that you can love anyone else.

Birth – Mr. Lee Skin

  • CATWA head appliers
  • 7 different skin tones (sold separately)
  • HUD includes No Eyebrows, Eyebrows, Hairbase and Beard options
  • Body skins sold seprately
  • Exclusive to Skin Fair 03/24/19

Reviver – Infinity Tattoo

  • Unisex tattoo
  • Applier HUDs for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, Signature and SLink mesh bodies
  • Exclusive to Skin Fair 03/24/19

With a face that looks like one of the most legendary martial artists of all time it would be ridiculous not to have hand wraps (taped hands). The “Luctator” hand wraps by L’Emporio & PL are just the thing that anyone who wants to take a photograph depicting hand to hand combat or fighting of any kind to make it more realistic. The tape is so realistic looking that you know L’Emporio took great care in making these. Truth be told I had been looking for something like this for a while but had given up looking. Seems it was the right timing and just fell into my lap.

The coolest part to me is that each version comes with 3 colors (white, dirty, and black) each with clean and bloody types so that you could take a photo before a skirmish and then take another one that would take place after with the blood stained texture. These are the kind of things that make me happy in the virtual world when it comes to accessories or clothing. It just takes the right person with a similar mind and the expertise to be able to create it and bring it to consumers like myself.

L’Emporio & PL – Luctator Hand Wraps

  • Bento compatible (Bento viewer needed for proper use)
  • 3 colors included via HUD (White, Dirty, and Black)
  • Clean and Bloody versions also included via HUD
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake 2.0), Nyramith Aesthetic and Signature Gianni mesh bodies (sold individually)
  • Exclusive to The Men Jail until 03/28/19

Now that I’ve had my fun trying my hand at being a peaceful warrior, maybe I’ll wear the hand wraps again and do a follow up photo where I’ve hit the streets of some location and take down some evil doers with my fists of rage. Come to think of it many video game characters have also had their fists wrapped over the years so that could be put to use for an idea as well.

On that note I’m going to tuck this blog post in as it is also getting late where I am at and there’s plenty of things to do tomorrow. It’s looking to be a full day so my next blog entry may not be again until Wednesday with how things look. I hope that something in this blog has inspired even just one reader to take a glance at both of the events I’ve covered in this post even if not for the items I have featured.

Be well until our paths cross again grasshoppers!

 

Well I know it gets harder every single day
And I know my darkness will never go away

[#595] Waste Some Time With You

and it’s all in how you mix the two
and it starts just where the light exists
it’s a feeling that you cannot miss
and it burns a hole through everyone that feels it

The Used, ♫Blue and Yellow

By now I’m sure I have to say very little about when I do blogs with Brenna because if I did more than likely I’d that sappy sucker that no one likes. For me being as low key as I possibly can is what works best and as the old saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words.

Pose Fair has given me a lot of opportunities to blog really outstanding stores and creators; what it has also done is restore my confidence in myself and my creativity has prospered from it. Between the January round and the current pop up Valentine’s Edition I have been able to blog stores that I’ve just discovered and also some of my favorites.

I’ve also learned that as a blogger I can be more than just a male fashion blogger, I tend to do a bit of everything now which includes sharing these pages with Brenna. She is a far superior decorator than I am and has a very good sense of style, also I give her credit for coming up with the soundtrack of this blog because her taste in music is rather good too (that has been one of the things that we’ve bonded on over the years).

In this entry, Brenna and I are using one of the two couples poses by LW Poses called “Fallin’ All Into You”. In the January edition I blogged their single male pose so I wanted to give this store some love by featuring this pose. It has all of the things I personally happen to enjoy…caffeine and being close to Brenna and it also gave us the opportunity to show off her decorating skills in our kitchen. She put together an amazing breakfast spread to make sure that with all the blogging I have been doing that I kept my energy up.

This pose to me has both a tender yet sexy feel to it that could be relayed in many different ways for anyone who picks up this pose. Depending on how and your person dress, it can go from classy to very spicy and we chose to go middle of the road with how we dressed; which I am more conservatively so.

LW Poses – Fallin’ All Into You Couples Pose

  • Bento pose (compatible viewer needed)
  • Mesh coffee cup (Transfer version also included)
  • Poseballs editable to adjust for avatar height through build tool
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair Valetine’s Edition until 02/14/19

There are several new items from current events that make up my look and I’m rather excited about them to be honest. I’m going to start with the flannel shirt by GALVANIZED called the “Jimmy Flannel Shirt”. There were so many good choices as far as colors go but sadly I had to choose because the FATPACK was not in my budget and that’s okay, I am likely to return to get at least one more color besides the Gray version I’m wearing in this photo.

I tend to wear flannel when a store releases one if the quality is good and with GALVANIZED, I know that it is likely to be a good product (I own a few other items of theirs). My look reminds me a lot of when I was a bit younger and I wore a lot of flannel and listened to grunge music, it’s a bit of a call back to those days. There is one important thing about this shirt that I have to impart and that is that it is meant to fit Signature Gianni bodies only and yes that could be disappointing but for you fellas it just may take trying out the demo to see if you can make it worth with the right alpha cuts.

Worth giving it a try if anything.

Equal10 is once again open for February and not every event is one that I want to go to right when it opens (because of the major pain in the ass it is). Though I definitely wanted to get a closer look at the newest male skin by Session Skins named “Damian” to see if it might inspire me. One thing that I’ve been getting better at (when it comes to skins) is trying the demo’s before jumping in head first. I gave this new release a look and after a couple minutes of pondering I liked it enough to get it.

The skin that I have been wearing mainly now for months (also by Session), “Ian” has done well for me. I’m not sure if “Damian” will end up becoming my every day look or not but I like it a lot and there’s a possibility that it may replace “Ian” in the long run unless another male release by Session catches my eye more than these gentleman have.

As for Brenna, the only major note about her style is that she has on the latest VIP Hair from TRUTH called “Kaijah” and what I know about this store is that lately they have a style HUD included that allows for different options. I really think the braided style looks good on her and with the options that I have at my disposal with Black Dragon it helps make things like hair look even better.

Seems as though it is time for me to finish this up and turn over to the credits but I have really enjoyed exploring photography with Black Dragon as I start to understand it a lot more I think my creativity will soar to even further heights. I will consider this an evolution of sorts as I have gone through a few of them in the course of my blogging career but this one really excites me the most.

Also just an FYI, the Valentine’s Pose Fair is open for two more days so for you photography buffs and romantic couples photo takers that have not been there the opportunity to do so is now and I cannot express how much I think you’ll enjoy the items that are for sale. On that note I am going to get this posted and spread the fun through Flickr; I’ll see you back here again soon! Be well until our paths may cross again.

[#583] I Wanna Dance With Somebody

Clock strikes upon the hour
And the sun begins to fade
Still enough time to figure out
How to chase my blues away

Bootstraps, ♫I Wanna Dance With Somebody
Originally Performed By Whitney Houston

One of the things that excites me about Pose Fair is all the ideas that come from the items official bloggers receive to help promote the stores and the event itself. I am taking full advantage of this by doing something fun with the Vol. 1 Male and Female Dance Poses by CuCa Poses. From the exact moment the ad was released I had a solid idea cemented in my head.

It is an added bonus that “All Night Long Bacdrops” by illuZion are both gifts to visitors to Pose Fair. The poses and the backdrop that I am using in black (pink is also available) work hand in hand to provide a great scene for club life. My days of going to clubs have long since past (though the desire to go to them when I could was fairly low) but at least it is much different in the virtual world.

My first thought going into using these poses was that I wanted to showcase both the male and female ones and gives me a reason to include Brenna. She has a great style and could easily be a blogger if she wanted to be but I respect that it is not her thing; at least I can ask her to pose for me and she does it without hesitation and offers inspiration that is valuable.

Each of these sets has 6 poses with an added bonus pose for purchasers of the FATPACKS with mirror versions included also. I had fun going through the sets to choose the two best poses for Brenna and I to ensure that our motions look as fluid as possible.

CuCa Poses – Male Dances Vol. 1 / Female Dances Vol. 1

  • Bento enabled poses (bento viewer needed for proper use)
  • Pose Stand and Static Poses in each pack.
  • Single poses sold individually as well as in a FATPACK option
  • 6+1 Exclusive FATPACK Poses (Mirrors included)
  • Vol. 2 sets are also available
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair until 01/26/19

Another sure thing when I began planning this scene is I knew what song would be the theme for it but I decided to go with a twist. “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” was the only true choice that I could go with and it’s one of the songs that put Whitney Houston on the map but I decided to use the cover version by Bootstraps which pays tribute to the original in an amazing way.

Either version would have been great to use but going with the more recent version was easier to decide on because everyone knows Whitney’s original version and I wanted to share with readers the cover because I am a fan of Bootstraps and if others find his work through me and enjoy it then it puts a smile onto my face.

There are very few things that are better than discovering new music.

For the ladies who love gachas (and I can safely say that many as well as us fellas do) there is the {Date Night} dress set from Vanilla Bae. If you are not familiar with this store and it would surprise me if there was someone who didn’t, they offer clothing that through scripting can be removed to show what I would politely refer to as unmentionables. They do offer unscripted versions for women that are not into that kind of attire. This set includes several versions of the Corset Dress which Brenna is wearing the short version (there is a much longer one with a slit along the side). The two RARE versions are both of the dresses in the adult version in all the colors offered, however, they are called Lootbox 1 and 2 because of the event they are in (which is called LOOTBOX).

On that note I think I have left you with enough information on this blog entry and look forward to the next few as I start to wind down my coverage for Pose Fair. This has been a very productive month for myself and the blog and if recent developments pan out (vague I know) there will be even more exciting things to share with all of you.

Keep your heads up and also the conversation (topic doesn’t matter!) It has been my honor and I will be back again very soon with another installment.

All the best,

B

[#571] One Call Away

You and me can make it anywhere
But for now, we can stay here for a while
‘Cause you know, I just wanna see you smile

Charlie Puth, ♫One Call Away

Wow, what can I say? Lately I have been on one of the best rolls when it comes to blogging then I have in a long time and I’m not sure what exactly it is; I can’t put my finger on it but I’m not going to look a gift horse in the mouth and all of those cliche sayings I could attribute to the reason why things have just clicked for me. Truthfully I am wondering if it is just the start of a new year and getting a fresh start or if there’s some cosmic reasoning for the creativity burst I have had…it could also be my excitement over returning to Pose Fair for at least the first two rounds this year. To me I think it’s more often the poses that help drive my ideas than it is the clothing but it seems that there is not such a thing as a virtual pose blog…well at least not yet anyway.

Also it could also be that I’ve truly hit upon some inspirational themes which most have been happy but if there’s someone that can tell me they are 100% all day every day and have never had a down moment then I want to know what they are doing because I certainly want to get on that train. For me I think that if I wasn’t allowed to feel any other emotions then I wouldn’t be half the person I am or will become. This site is more then just about virtual things, it’s about what it is to be human and all the thing that I may go through or what someone close to me might be experiencing.

One of the reasons why I chose the pose I did for this entry is because of the phone prop that came with it because it automatically helped me remember that one of the songs I wanted to use as a soundtrack was Charlie Puth’s “One Call Away”. It’s a testament to being an emotional superhero that doesn’t need a cape and being there for someone close (mostly likely a spouse or significant other). I think that if one of the people I loved needed to talk no matter when it was in the day that I am going to be there to support them no matter what.

I used to often wonder if I was the kind of person that did things for people for what it could get me in return all because of one terrible person I had in my life. They made me feel that way and I spent a long time worrying about what people thought but as I write this I’ve clearly realized that I know without a doubt that I do the things I do out of love.

Like a broken record I am probably going to talk about how much there is at Pose Fair until the end of the month when the January round ends but when what I say is based in truth it is worth repeating if it means that I can inspire someone to visit the event to find something to create a moment of their own that others will then see and the cycle continues.

MERCH is a pose store whose name I’ve heard floating around for a while and not only by fellow bloggers but also by their pose creating peers as a quality place to get poses from and that says a lot if someone in the same profession has nice things to say about another person’s work then it is worth looking into. Their pose set “Von” is what I am using for the photo and as I said above I chose it because of the phone prop that came with it.

Not all of the poses use the phone but most do which I thought would also be good information to pass along to the public along with also adding the pose key as well to see what the other poses in the set look like. I think that would be something I’d want to see on a blog if I were looking at one and wanting all the information I could get about a product.

M E R C H – Von Pose Pack:

  • Bento enabled pose (Bento viewer required)
  • 5 different poses with one pose variation (6 total poses)
  • Mobile phone prop included
  • Exclusively @ Pose Fair until 01/31/19

NEW RELEASE

Fire escapes in winter can be pretty chilly so it made lots of sense for me to put on the “Camron Over Coat” by HEVO which is a recent release from the November/December round of Men Only Monthly that I remember picking up right before it closed for that round. I struggled with trying to pick between coat colors so in the end the price was well worth going all-in and purchasing the FATPACK.

Usually I tend to wear black coats because it’s somewhat of a personal trademark for me which is why I stepped out of one of my norms by wearing the brown version of the coat and still managed to get my monotone colors with how I colored the sweatshirt and shirt underneath that. What can I say? I told you it was cold so I bundled up so my pixels didn’t freeze!

HEVO – Camron Over Coat:

  • Original mesh
  • HUD contains 8 colors to change 3 parts (Base, Sweater and Shirt)
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake) and Signature (Gianni)
  • Now available at the HEVO in-world store

On that note I think it is best to end this post at a good spot by leaving the entire credits and be sure to remember if there is something that isn’t listed check the above page with the list of the items that I wear currently. That is the go to reference for anything you did not see listed in credits and until I’m wearing something different that is where my permanent items reside.

Plenty more things to do and my ideas are through the roof right now so time to go cook up something new but until then keep those conversations going!
