[#370] I’m Sexy And I Know It

When I walk in the spot this is what I see
Everybody stops and they staring at me

Sexy And I Know It” –  LMFAO  ♫Listen

It’s been a while since I have done an entry that wasn’t an emotionally charged theme and just totally let loose and show some of my more humorous side. I like to try and do all sorts of different things with the medium that I work with. I also like to show that I can do funny or poke fun at myself as well to show that I’m not so tightly wound. This definitely fits that category and I did it with the help of items that can be found at The Dark Style Fair 4, The Men’s Department, Men Only Monthly and The Avenue.

I may not have mentioned it in previous posts but it is the 5th anniversary of The Men’s Department and I remember being at the very first one even though I was not very active in-world at the time I wanted to check out what all the hoopla was about. I was impressed then and I’ve continued to stay that way throughout the years and supporting the event as best as I could through whatever means possible. I’ve always found something in every round since the beginning and it makes me glad to know that those behind the event keep striving to bring males the items and designers we sorely need to stay stylish, so thank you TMD for making my job a smidge easier.

While I am on the topic of TMD, my item for this look is the “SEAN” skin by STRAY DOG. I knew the moment I saw the advertisement on Flickr that I would need to feature this somehow. The face can show a hint of mischief if using the right animation on the CATWA Daniel HUD. It’s one of those faces that has that air of confidence bordering on cocky. It comes with a HUD that you can choose whether or not you want to have freckles, there is an applier for both. It also comes with an eyebrow and body shape unless you have one of your own that you prefer to use. I experiment with this kind of thing quite often but I chose to use the one included and the look truly appealed to me.

Tattoos are not something I do a lot of with my looks as most of my styles have longer sleeves or just cover up most of the art which renders it meaningless of what it’s purpose is, which is to be displayed. It’s also not because I dislike tattoos as that is not the case as I am the proud owner of ink in the real world. With that said, there are about three to four different tattoo creators that I enjoy products from, ISUKA is no exception. For this look I am featuring the “Gabriel” tattoo which has a very detailed scene which comprises of a chest plate and full sleeves combination. The product contains legacy tattoos as well as appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Gianni, Omega, and TMP with three different opacity choices (Fresh, Normal, and Faded). It is a very well done tattoo and I encourage you to at least give it and the ISUKA brand a look if you are fan of ink.

Yack is a brand that before finding them at The Avenue I had never heard of. The mens boxers they have for sale (two different texture versions) are very nicely done and if you are the kind of person that enjoys relaxing around in just that well then this product will appeal to you. I purchased the Printed version but am highly considering going back before The Avenue ends to pick up the solids pack. Tthe package contains sizes for Adam, Aesthetic, Gianni, SLink Physique, and TMP with two versions: regular and “exposed” for those of you who are a bit more daring.

Exile is featuring the “Outsider” hair at The Dark Style Fair 4. With the new rich textures that Kavar Cleansate has begun to use in the new era of the brand, it was hard not to splurge and pick up the “All or Nothing” pack. This ear length hair is great for those of you who like having hair that is not short but also not down to your neck or farther. It seems that Exile has been releasing more female items but I expect that to change in the near future and I await with anticipation what he has in store for us fellas.

A few posts back I re-visited the “Ardor Eyes” from Avi-Glam. No sooner did I publish the post I received a delivery of an update adding new iris colors that were not previously included. I like that Avi-Glam takes care of their products and sees opportunities to enhance or update them and for those who previously purchased them are given the new product instead of having to re-purchase them to gain access to those colors that were not available when it first was released.

My last little bit of information for you is about the pose I used for this look. It is the “Kevin (Revisited)” set by Poseology which I originally obtained at the Pose Fair but didn’t have an idea to put it to use during the event. This set of poses are mainly used for those who might be body builders and or more muscular than yours truly which is why I had a little fun with it.

Now that you’ve been given all the pertinent information about what went into this look, I will leave you with the look/style credits below here along with access to the store and event locations for every item I used. I look forward to seeing you back again but until then as always, stay stylish fellas.

[#368] Baby, I Could Die A Happy Man

I don’t need no vacation
No fancy destination
Baby, you’re my great escape
We could stay at home
Listen to the radio
Or dance around the fireplace

Die A Happy Man” –  Thomas Rhett  ♫Listen

It seems like spring and summer is not arriving fast enough (at least in my area) so I thought I’d warm the spirit with a lovely beach couples photo that for you gentleman is loaded with new goodies from events such as The Avenue and the now monthly SIGNATURE Event. I also have some great news for those of you who are looking for a good pair of jeans. I’ll get to that in just a moment but here’s the low down on the latest event releases.

I was browsing my go to website Seraphim to look at the latest events and shopping guides and I stumbled upon an event called The Avenue. I don’t believe it’s been around very long and if it has it hasn’t really hit my radar but I thought I would give it a look through to see if there was anything that I might want to use. While looking I found a brand called Erde that have released a skin called “Kai”. I thought it looked interesting so I went over there and grabbed a demo. This skin definitely has a macho side to it with facial stubble already built in so there was really no need to add anything to it. I do implore you though if you head to The Avenue to take a look at this please take a demo because the skin tone chart is not the usual light to dark. I found that after applying the demonstration that tone #7 was the right fit for me. They also have for purchase the fatpack of skin appliers so you don’t have to instantly run to the main store just so you can look like a whole human being.

After a bit of a break, the SIGNATURE Event is back with a vengeance. Let me tell you for someone that owns both the head and the body this place was like a candy store. Clothes, skins, just about everything you might want is there for you to bring home. One of the items that you can purchase from there is the “Andrew” Tank Top from RIOT. Now let me tell you even though I received a review copy as the brand is one of my sponsors, I would still buy this tank because it’s the epitome of summer wear. The entire collection of colors would be worth it because there are a ton of them and I’m definitely not disappointed in this release. Also included in the package are sizes for Adam, SLink Physique, and TMP mesh body types.

I paired the tank with another item from RIOT, the “Lennon Long Line” Jeans which compliment it well not only in the way they fit together but also because these jeans are just really top of the line. What’s even better is that right now at the RIOT main location these jeans are 50% the regular price during the duration of The Dressing Room event. You can head over there by taking the taxi down below in the credits and catch a great deal.

Given the choice of going barefoot or wearing something on my feet, I choose to go with the latter because I found a great pair of sandals that are available at the SIGNATURE Event as well. {kokoia} has been killing it lately with their footwear and the “Alessio” sandals are no different. There are five different colors in the included HUD that you can change both the straps and soles to. You don’t even have to buy them individually, it is all together for a great price. Considering I’ll probably spend a good amount of time on the beach this summer,

As you’ll notice from the photo I have a lovely assistant joining me for this blog entry. I’ve included the credits for what she’s wearing as well so if those of you gals that read this site are interested you can also participate in shopping with or without a gentleman.

Now that you know what went into this post I’ll encourage you to look just a little further down and see the taxi’s for the stores and events included here. I’ll be back with more SIGNATURE Event goodies and possibly some things from events such as Memento Mori, The Dark Style Fair 4, and the freshly opened May round of The Men’s Department. Until then as always, stay stylish fellas and for you gals…keep it classy!
