[#422] This Time Of Year

Well, there’s a football in the air
Across a leaf blown field
Yeah, and there’s your first car on the road
And the girl you’d steal

– ♫This Time Of Year♫ – Better Than Ezra

 

The fall bug has hit the pages of These Conversations Kill for another year. This being the first time that I’ve done a seasonal scene in 2017 but I wanted to make sure I got this in before any other weather started to take over. I’d had this idea formulated in my head since last year but the time just rolled by me and it became too late in my mind to try and put it together.

After waiting a year I finally was able to get it off of my list of ideas and into virtual reality photography. The honest truth is I think it turned out better than I expected because not every bit of the look I chose for this was around at that time. Much of these items being recent releases as of the last month or two. Some of them even just having come out.

As the Thanksgiving Holiday approaches many families will get together and go out into their yards or a nearby park and play a little catch or touch football. I thought I would try capturing that feeling with the pose set that I am using. I think all of the items I pulled together to create this made the feeling a little magical as I was taking the photos and listening to the song that inspired me to do the session in the first place.

Once again I was on location and revisited a place where I’d done photos at before but it was a while ago and I do not recall it having a fall theme to it. The Mill is a very photogenic spot and a great place to explore even if you are not a photographer. It’s a very peaceful place and right now it is a very fall-centric spot for those of you who enjoy beautiful colors of autumn.

MESANGE has given me the privilege of featuring the “Solunis Eyes” for this entry as they are a part of the list of designer’s that feel I am worthy enough to review their products. These eyes are certainly very colorful and I’ll give more of my thoughts on them in the style credits below.

The eyes are a part of the Hipster Men’s Event which I’ve also had the pleasure of taking a stroll through the current November round. Lots of great poses, clothing, and accessories to be had, one of which is the FABIA “Rich” Hair/Beanie combination. With the weather becoming more chilly, wearing a hat like this would certainly keep a person comfortable.

I hope you’ve found something you’re interested in checking out for yourself while browsing this post. There’s plenty of shopping to be done and a lot of great events currently running and I will be looking to give you coverage on them as well in upcoming installments of this blog. Thank you for sharing in this adventure with me it’s been a lot of fun. Stay true to yourself and I look forward to the next adventure.

Onto the next conversation…

HAIR⊱ -FABIA- @ Hipster Men’s EventNEW
I’m sure you’re likely wondering why I would list this item as hair when in the photos you clearly see that it is just a beanie. Well my friends this is more than just a beanie, there are three versions of this beanie (the one you see in these photos and two others with different hair lengths). I may actually wear this again to show you one of the other versions. I purchased the FATPACK which for the amount of colors you get is worth the price tag if you are someone like me who doesn’t always stay with the same hair color all the time. There are 5 different color packs if you decide not to get them all and they all come with the 3 styles of beanie and a HUD to change the color of the beanie.

HEADLeLutka – Andrea v 3.1

EYES⊱ MESANGE – Solunis Eyes @ Hipster Men’s Event ♯ NEW
As I mentioned above, I have been given the opportunity to review this item which was recently released at Hipster Men’s Event. There are 15 different eyes to choose from and can be purchased together in a FATPACK complete with a HUD; there are also regular mesh eyeballs in the package. These eyes are compatible with any Omega enabled eyes (Catwa, LeLutka etc…)

FACEStray Dog – Cody T2
BEARDBeusame // Beard V50
BODYBelleza – Jake

SHIRTetham – Andrew Tee w/ Sweater
Previously released at an event, this shirt (well honestly I’d call it more of a shirt with a sweatshirt underneath) has a lot of different color options. I purchased the FATPACK which comes with a HUD that allows you to color both of the shirt and the sweatshirt. This is definitely perfect for those people who aren’t quite ready to bring the winter coats out of the closet.

COMPATIBLE With: Belleza, NX-Nardcotix, Signature, SLink and TMP male bodies.

PANTSYACK – Lazaro

SHOESFLI. – Suede Black Gum Canvas
I previously have worn these shoes before in other blogs but I wanted to state that they have been updated to fit the Belleza male body. They are really awesome low-top sneakers and honestly one of my favorite kinds to be released in the past year as they resemble some that I own in the real world.

COMPATIBLE With: Belleza, Signature, SLink and Classic male bodies.

Photo taken @ The Mill

{NanTra} Touchdown
This pose set comes with 6 different action poses depicting the game of American football. While they are really meant to be used in a setting with where there is a real field and uniformed players, I managed to make them work for the idea that I envisioned when putting this scene together. I think they can definitely also be used for other types of football photos as well.

Excellently made but to give a brief warning, they are not Bento enabled as they were created before it was released.

[#421] And I Am Stronger Now

You want to tear me down
You want to hold me down
You can’t control me now
You cannot take me out
You cannot save me now
Because I’m stronger now

Stronger♫ – Trust Company

 

As you may have noticed, I did a mini makeover to the layout of the site and will be continuing to do maintenance on it a little bit until I’ve reached my own personal satisfactory level. I find that change can be a good thing after a while if you feel like something doesn’t look right to you anymore or feel like it could use a “new coat of paint” as it were. There were some things I felt that were a necessity personally for me and for the site, which you’ll easily notice that the header remains unchanged. It may get tweaked a little as well but I’m not as much into a hurry to delve into that.

As the season is starting to change and in my part of the world the daylight doesn’t last as long as it did even a few weeks ago, along with the leaves starting to turn color and falling from the trees..I feel a bit hesitant to start purchasing clothing that is better used in open outdoorsy type scenes. I have a few things in mind that could be coming up but first I want to try and get other things done that have been tucked away in my brain.

This scene’s overall look is a hodge-podge of a lot of different things. Most of it from events that are just about to end their current rounds to ones that have just started. Not to mention the Marketplace, where I have been finding quite a few things to use in my photo sessions.

For this entry I only have one featured product from my brand collaborators. MESANGE has been kind enough to share with me “The Ripple Eyes” from the current round of Men Only Monthly. I’ll give you a few more specifics in just a bit down in the credits portion of this post.

I also managed to make trips to The Men’s Department which recently opened a little over a week ago; I also stopped at the newest round of Man Cave which surprisingly I did not find as much as I normally do but I still didn’t leave there empty handed (I’m a habitual shopper, I can’t help it!)

I really feel like this scene turned out really well. I wasn’t trying to overthink the windlights and felt that my use of LUMIPro turned out decent. Sometimes I even wonder if I’m putting it to use the right way but it is easy to second guess yourself. You’ll probably also notice the color scheme of my clothing and yeah I was feeling a bit nerdy at the time so I went with something a bit obvious.

With another scene in the books I hope that you’ve found at least one thing interesting and will take the provided transportation to the stores and events I’ve linked to. It’s always a pleasure to be as helpful and to maybe inspire someone to create a scene of their own with their own vision. I’ll see you all again just up the road!

Onto the next conversation…

HAIR⊱ ~Tableau Vivant~ Kawashima I – Winter ♯ Marketplace

This is not a new item but I couldn’t help but make the comment that it is one of my most favorite hairs in my entire inventory. I’ve worn it many times as it has been out for what seems like forever but still holds up with all the newer products being sold on the market today. It’s been moved to the Tableau Vivant Marketplace as it is no longer for sale in their store. Guys who are looking for a longer hair that might be what you’d consider vintage but still stands tall…check this out, you won’t be disappointed.

HEADLeLutka – Andrea v 3.1
EYES⊱ MESANGE – The Ripple Eyes @ Men Only MonthlyNEW

I had to make sure I got this in before the end of the current round (for those of you wondering it’s the 15th of November). I love the swirling colors that are intertwined in this set of eyes as I am with all of the other MESANGE releases. You have 15 colors to choose from which for those of you who want variety can get in a HUD with the FATPACK. Mesh eyeballs are also included for those of you who choose not to or just do not have Omega friendly eyes.

FACEStray Dog – Cody T2
BEARDBeusame // Beard V50
BODYBelleza – Jake
TATTOOProdigy Ink – Beckham

This body ink is patterned after a certain celebrated Futbol (Soccer in America) star from Britain. It comes in three different opacities (Fresh, Regular, or Faded) and comes with system layers as well as appliers for Omega, SLink, and TMP for you fellas. Female appliers are also included for those of you gals who might be interested as well.

TANKTOP⊱ DUFAUX – Sporty Tank – Purple @ Man CaveNEW

When I was browsing the Man Cave event, I came across this pretty cool tanktop. There were several color choices and I was a bit vexed when it came to choosing but as I stated earlier I was feeling a bit nerdy so I with with Purple. I would have probably liked the FATPACK for the special edition colors that came with it but at the moment I’m on a bit of a budget so I had to sacrifice and pick one. I’m certainly not disappointed with the fit of this tank. Originally my idea for the scene was to go without a top but when I saw this I knew for sure this would be perfect for a workout scene.

COMPATIBLE With: Aesthetic, Belleza and Signature male bodies.

PANTSYACK – Lazaro

Most people (mind you I say most but not all) do their workouts in either shorts or some kind of track pants so that’s the idea I had in mind as I was putting this together. Yack is a brand that I’ve purchased items from before and went to their store recently for something different and these pants caught my attention. I hadn’t started putting this look together yet so I didn’t get them right away but I do go back to set the final touches to my look. The included HUD has so many color options (with stripes and solid) as well as the ability to change the color of the string tie. It was a very good bargain for what I received and definitely recommend them to anyone who wants to put together a recreational outfit such as this.

COMPATIBLE With: Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza, Classic (XS-XL), Signature, SLink and TMP male bodies.

BACKDROP[ isuka ] make it stop backdrop

This little hole in the wall would be the perfect place for some bachelor to just hang his hat at the end of the day and get in a good workout before calling it good. It might be a little bit downtrodden (okay it’s actually really downtrodden but it has it’s charms). I really like the detail with this skybox as it is another fine backdrop from ISUKA. If you haven’t check them out yet then what are you waiting for? Their builds help paint masterpieces.

Animosity – Gym Flow @ TMDNEW

Need to get your burn on bro? (Sorry reminded me of a commercial and couldn’t help myself). Animosity has come out with a really cool workout pose set which is bento enabled and comes with two versions of the pull up bar. I really like how this turned out but the only thing I might have changed…well actually more like added would have been to include a salmon ladder like Oliver Queen uses in the Arrow TV series. Now it’s more than unlikely that the brand creator for Animosity will see this but if you do happen to read it…maybe an update? Would be cool to see.

[#415] This Is My Fight Song

And I don’t really if nobody else believes
‘Cause I’ve still got a lot of life left in me

Fight Song” – Rachel PlattenListen

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and just even doing some basic research you find out some staggering statistics. As of yet there is no cure for the different types that ail women all over the world every day. Disease never takes a day off that is why there are many organizations working endlessly to help find a way to prevent this from taking yet another life.

Daughters, Sisters, Mothers, Grandmothers and friends could be at risk which it is why it is so important to spread the word. If you know someone who hasn’t had a screening in a while to check with their physician. Also if anyone reading this has ever found anything suspicious do not wait to see someone because any chance of detecting early could be difference between life and death.

Another fact that might surprise you is that women are not the only ones susceptible to having breast cancer. Yes, males themselves have a possibility of developing a type of the disease in their cells as well. It’s not as common and less talked about but it is still possible. I applaud the efforts of organizations such as Susan G. Komen and global sports organizations such as the National Football League and World Wrestling Entertainment for taking part in helping with education and awareness in the fight.

With each post I write a little bit about what blog sponsors (which I personally am not a fan of that term) are being featured and it is something I started doing recently and will continue to do because they’ve worked hard to create the products that I’ve been given to review and let you all know about.

In fact this post wouldn’t have come to light (or had less of a chance of me doing it) without the pose and prop that I’ve been given to review by Image Essentials. Their “Survivor” pose consists of 5 different poses with pink ribbon prop. Each one has a mirror pose as well so you can pick which side you prefer to photograph. It is currently at the TWE12VE event which you can find the transportation to down in the full credits.

Also being reviewed are a set of eyes from MESANGE from the Hipster Men’s Event (an event that I am very fond of) which recently started this past week. One of the things I like about having a designer benefactor that creates eyes is that you can change your eye color to something different and not have the same eyes twice unless you wanted to.

This particular adventure is one that is more on the personal side, if you’ve had someone in your family that has been diagnosed and have fought cancer head on win or lose then you know what it is like.

My intentions in creating this is to help encourage everyone to learn more and also to participate anyway you possibly can no matter how little it is. Also it is my hope that one day in my lifetime I will hear that a cure has been found not just for breast cancer but for as many or all types out there in the world.

Thank you for taking a look today and I am going to leave you with the credits and one last thing. The name of this site is These Conversations Kill and many you might have in your lifetime may in fact hurt deeply but I do hope that this particular entry will indeed help save a life.

Onto the next conversation…

This collection contains 15 colors with a stunning design which is changeable via HUD. It also includes mesh eyeballs for anyone who does not use provided mesh head eyes or they do not come with them. There are also 4 sizes of pupil to be chosen for your best look.

Compatible with Omega (Catwa, LeLutka, etc…)

FACEStray Dog – Cody 02

JEANS⊱ BlankLine – StandardJeans @ TMDNEW

Now that BlankLine has been releasing items that work with Belleza bodies I’ve been really enjoying the releases they have had at TMD. Though I have to warn anyone who might be interested in this jeans, they are lower in the back allowing for a little bit of a plumber’s view if you catch my drift. I certainly will wear a shirt when wearing them out in public because nobody wants to see my derriere. 4 different denims to choose from and belt also color changes via HUD as well.

Compatible with: Belleza, Signature, and TMP mesh bodies.

SHOES⊱ SEMLLER – SLIP ON @ TMDNEW


IE – Survivor (b) (1) @ TWE12VE ♯ NEW

I think I said all that I could have said about this product in the earlier part of this entry but it certainly bares repeating. There are 5 different poses (each with mirrors) that have a pink ribbon prop. Keep in mind that yes this pose set is for ladies but I found a way to make it work for me with the pose that I used. Those of you reading and know of anyone interested in this pose grab the taxi and take them along to give it a closer look.

[#412] Tell Them What I Hoped Would Be…

Tell them all I know now
Shout it from the rooftops
Write it on the sky line
Tell them I was happy
And my heart is broken
Ally my scars are open

Impossible” – James ArthurListen
(Originally performed by Shontelle)

Hello readers, I’m back with another adventure that brought me back on location to Mother Road, where I just feel like I could shoot so many different looks and scenes but I know I need to pace myself so I don’t over-do it there and get tired of going there (though I don’t see that being possible).

With this particular posting I ended up doing something different and ended up taking more shots and split up my close-ups to more or less build the story of the scene a little more. I’m not sure if that’s something I’ll do as a permanent thing or if it is just for this particular scene.

I think with the ambience and mood of the setup, I chose to work more angles and when I wrapped up the photo session I was compelled to go that extra extra mile.

Featured sponsors in this edition include Cold-Ash (a double dose even) and MESANGE’s offering from the Men Only Hunt which recently started. This year they have a HUD that you can pick up HERE to guide you to the different locations with prizes. You can also go to their website to get the clues to help assist you with finding these prizes. Grab someone and take them along because these hunts are always fun to do with other people.

I cannot recall if I have or not but I do want to thank anyone that voted on my behalf and on the behalf of These Conversations Kill for the BVN “Bloggies”. While I have not heard anything regarding it yet, the awards ceremony is this Saturday the 14th which I certainly hope to be attending.

Regardless of the outcome, I’m proud of the things I’ve done thus far in the three years that I’ve been blogging male virtual fashion. With every new adventure, conversation, and step forward, I have learned a lot of new techniques, made a lot of lasting friendships, and have grown in many different ways. To the fans, supporters, and silent onlookers I am greatful for you.

Time to leave you with the credits and move on to a new adventure. Please consider taking a look at the events, stores and locations featured today. You do not know what you are missing out on.

Onto the next conversation…

HAIR⊱ MOON{Hair}. Painter – Ombres ♯ No Longer Available
HEADLeLutka – Andrea v 3.1
EYESMESANGE – Quartz Eyes Mini Pack ♯ MOH10 / NEW

Once you roam around the store and find the hidden moustache, you’ll be given the gift of this 5 pack of eyes. Included in the prize are classic mesh eyeballs and HUDs for both the included mesh and also for Omega compatible eyes to change the iris color and size pupil you desire. These are definitely appealing visually and look almost like they could fit well with a winter scene (though personally not quite ready for that yet ha!)

FACESTRAY DOG – CODY – TONE 02 ♯ NEW

One of three new skins made exclusively for the LeLutka “Andrea” head, Cody comes in 3 different tones (02/03/04) and has two different HUDs for those who want the eyebrows built in and one for those of you who prefer to use your own style. I like the youthful look to this skin that you can mature more if you choose to add facial hair but you can honestly go without (unless like me it is a necessity).

BODYBelleza – Jake

SHIRT⊱ {COLD-ASH} HEMSWORTH Tucked Shirt @ TMDNEW

Oh my what can I say about this shirt? A lot but I don’t want to get too wordy so I’ll try to keep my thoughts simple and to the point. A well made button down/open collared shirt that is paired perfectly with their previous release the “DEAN” chinos. There are four different packs you can purchase (Classic, Colors, Check and Dotted) and should fit anyone with a Belleza, Signature, or TMP body! The moment I threw the outfit together I thought I looked very casual and laid back but with a possible devious side (and you never know I just might!)

PANTS{COLD-ASH} DEAN Chinos (CLASSIC PACK)
SHOES⊱ SEMLLER – SLIP ON @ TMDNEW

When I first picked these up from The Men’s Department there were only a few colors in the FATPACK but within a day or so I was sent a new version of the product where they added things and the customization for this is truly a shoe lover’s paradise. You have the ability to pick solid colors or checkered and with the included HUD you can pick which parts you want colored so if you want a combo of solid and check then you are set. For those of you who own a Belleza, Signature, SLink, and TMP body these should work well for you. The package also comes with an unrigged pair as well as sizes for the ladies just in case you know of a gal who likes wearing slip-ons.

[#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.

HAIR+elua+ – Demi
HEADCATWA – Shaheen (Bento)
FACESTRAY DOG – MARVIN – TONE 02
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).

GLOVESVRSION LODE 5.0 Male Glove

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.

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.

[#401] Where Do We Go From Here?

I’m not so glad I met you
It makes me want to go away
I touch
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?)

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.

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.
