[#325] Everything Changes

If I could turn back the years
If you could learn to forgive me
Then I could learn to feel

Gentleman, today I come to you with a relaxed look for those days on the weekend where you just want to kick back and just do a whole lot of nothing. You’ll find in this post items from SwagBag to the Mesh Body Addicts and The Medieval Fantasy Fair, along with a nice little surprise I found on the Marketplace.

We’ll get to the SwagBag first since that started earlier in the month. No.Match has released the “No Hope” hair which is a medium length side hanging style. You can use just about any kind of hairbase with this and it will still look great. Keep in mind that the pack only includes the Ombre tones with combinations of browns/blondes and blacks/reds. There should be something there for everyone who wants to deviate from the normal.

MESANGE is currently offering the “Cranford Eyes” at The Medieval Fantasy Fair. As I mentioned in a previous entry, their newly updated HUD is fantastic. It gives you the opportunity to use either the mesh eyes that are included or use appliers for the Omega and Genesis Lab systems. The Beauty Pack, which includes 15 different iris colors is well worth the price and I highly recommend it.

For those who are fans of the Mesh Body Addicts event, I have something for you. One of my favorite up and coming creators, RIOT, has released the Lennon Long Line Jeans. These jeans have a wide variety of denim tones and will fit just about any avatar choice you have. The HUD is simple to use and you can also choose the color style of the metal buttons on them which gives a broader range of choice combinations.

For the aforementioned Marketplace item I spoke of, I was browsing the other day not for anything in particular and came across the Portand shirt from Native Urban. I’m positive that this shirt is available in-world but to discover it first on the Marketplace where things can be very hit or miss makes it a mega find. It has a relaxed look and is fitted for Standard avatars as well as those with SLink and [SIGNATURE] Gianni bodies as well. It comes packaged with a HUD that has a wide variety of graphic designs, allowing for it to be one of those shirts that you don’t just toss into your closet and forget about it. There is at least a design that you could wear it every day of the week and not wear the same look twice.

This is all I have for this outing and I’d rather everyone take a ride from the credits below to take a look at these items and much more at the events they are featured in. The SwagBag is subscription based but can still be purchased from their Headquarters, the taxi will also be below. Until the next time, keep it stylish fellas!

Things are starting to finally settle down after the holidays and the turning of the calendar and I have some excellent goods to share with you. Grab a seat and lend an ear because some of your favorite events and equally as great designers are putting their best foot forward.

SwagBag is slowly becoming one of my favorite things that I look forward to at the beginning of the month. Just in case you’ve never heard of it or have little knowledge of it, here’s a crash course on what it is about and how it works. It’s a subscription based product box like you may see out in the real world (Loot Crate, DC Legion of Collectors, etc) and you pay a fee of $1500 to get a box packed with a variety of items ranging from Skins, Clothes, and Furniture to Hair and Poses. Many of the top designers have been participating in this since it’s inception during the month of August 2016. There are theme boxes which have items centering around that chosen theme and some boxes do not have one and are just random items the chosen creator puts in. It’s well worth the money and if you see something from a previous SwagBag, you can go to their Headquarters and purchase it, however, the cost is $3500 as it is considered a past carton. Also if you’ve never bought or received one as a gift…the container it comes in is super cool with effects and everything. You have to take my word for it…super cool.

Okay! I was a bit wordy there and still have to discuss the items I am featuring from the January edition of SwagBag. The “Merk” tattoo from Dappa is like their usual work, random images placed in strategic places over the body but they always seem to keep it interesting. It’s not your average “tattoo book” kind of thing. They are definitely a creator that works outside of the box.

Also from SwagBag is the “Owen” skin from Stray Dog. This particular skin is an applier for the [SIGNATURE] Gianni head only and comes in 3 tones: Pearl, Cotton, and Buttermilk. Also with this skin in the selected tone of your choice you get the option for clean shaven, clean shaven with freckles or a goatee/mustache combination. Having those options are nice and they do also have a browless face applier if you want to use your favorite one.

RIOT has just released a pair of Pajamas that could be used as Yoga pants if you so chose but all I can say is they are comfy. You get quite a few options especially if you chose to get the full pack, which I entirely encourage based on all the options you receive. 24 colors in all but that’s not all, you get all 24 colors in various types. There is a heathered version which makes them more like sweatpants or you can have two different types of plaid, black check and white check. These are essential for those nights if you are on a winter sim to stay warm and comfy. Also fellas there is a version for the ladies as well so if you want your girl to enjoy the same comfort, take her along to pick those up as well!

Last but not least is the “Pavel” hair from Modulus. This is their first release of the year and it can be found at The Crossroads. I would say the style is kind of like a new-age troubadour that is very trendy. It’s combined with the Vinny hairbase which you can also get at The Crossroads. Both of these items come in the same color packs: Monochromes, Browns, Blondes, and Reds and Vibrants (for those who like to keep things interesting and show their wilder side).

I hope I’ve encouraged you to get up and take a look at these items or to simply go check out the Events and Stores and see what else you might find because there is quite a lot I can assure you. Perhaps maybe I’ll even see you out there but until the next time, keep it stylish fellas! On to the credits!
