[#390] Now I Ain’t Ridin No Waves

Magical feel in my thumbs
Make ’em dumb with the hums

Surfin’” – Kid CudiListen

After spending some time with the last entry shooting in and around Indie Teepee, it was time to get back to work or well for me time to go to the beach. It’s been a while since I’ve done a shoot like this so I felt inspired after hearing the song that serves as the theme of this post. As you’ll witness, there are more items from the Hipster Men’s Event and also The Men’s Department. There were a lot of good finds at each place for me so I’m trying to feature as much of them as I can before I start doing coverage of Indie Teepee items as well as from Men Only Monthly that opened for a new round on the 20th. Time to get into the details so enjoy and check out the events and shops that make up what you see. Always get demos to ensure a happy shopping experience. Until the next time as always, stay stylish fellas!

HAIR⊱ Modulus – Valdes Hair ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ TMD
HAIRBASE⊱ Modulus – Andre Hair Base ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ TMD

After dropping three new hairs at this year’s Hair Fair, Modulus is still cranking them out with a new product available at this month’s TMD. The “Valdes” hair is a nice slicked back, shaved sides hairstyle that is perfect for the warmer months and for those who might like to spend a lot of time on the beach. It is available with 5 different color HUDs to choose from as well as an option to buy all of them at once. Each pack also includes the “Andre” Hairbase to ensure seamless compatibility. TMD runs until the end of the month so make sure you make a stop there.

HEADCATWA – Shaheen (Bento)
EYES⊱ MESANGE – Arum Eyes ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Hipster Men’s Event

Taking a dip into the male event world, MESANGE is getting into the mix with the “Arum Eyes” 15 stunning colors with compatibility to Omega enabled eyes or just using the provided mesh ones. I knew these would work perfectly for this visual and I hope you agree with me!

FACE⊱ ::LV:. Finn – Pearl/02 ♯ Marketplace

On the heels of featuring the “Nathan” skin in a few of my previous posts, I was in contact with the designer and owner of LV Designs and I became a blogger for the brand. For this post I am wearing the “Finn” skin and shape which can be found on the Marketplace. I like this skin just as much as I do the “Nathan” one. It is only for Catwa though so keep that in mind. It was designed for the “Daniel” head but I think it works just as well with “Shaheen” for those of you that own it as well.

TANKTOP⊱ Legal Insanity – Johnny King Black T-Shirt ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Hipster Men’s Event

The moment I arrived at the Hipster Men’s Event, I was greeted by the “Johnny” sleeveless shirts. Call it a tanktop if you like (as I certainly do) this is another product by Legal Insanity that I couldn’t pass up. There are tons of different designs to choose from but seeing as I am a big fan of lions this is the one I stuck with. There is a black version and also a dark blue version of this shirt. I didn’t want to overload my look with blue considering I have blue hair and my surfboard and trunks both have blue in them. This product has sizes for Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature, SLink, and TMP mesh bodies for those of you that own one of those. Legal Insanity does also offer at FATPACK of the tanks if there are several graphics that appeal to you.

SWIM TRUNKS⊱ {COLD-ASH} SLATER Swim Shorts ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Ultra

Some time has passed since I have been able to feature an item that is available for sale at the Ultra event but thanks to {Cold-Ash}, whom I proudly call one of my sponsors have released the “SLATER” swim shorts. These swim shorts feature a untied string in the front as well as come in two different varieties (a classic color HUD, and a light color HUD) and if you purchase the FATPACK you have access to the 6 color “faded” HUD which is what I have on and I think they rock. Belleza, Signature, SLink, and TMP mesh body owners will be happy that this product was made for them. Hitting the beach never looked so good!

:LW: Poses – Keep Moving ♯ Marketplace

This pose certainly helped make the visual for this entry what it was. It was simple and for those photographers on a budget that want to create their own surf memories can head to the Marketplace for my second MP selection of the entry. I know that many times I can count on LW Poses to have something that will fit the scene I am setting up. This pose comes with the surfboard included but you could use your own if chose to.

[#389] Music

Hey Mr. DJ put a record on
I want to dance with my baby

Music” – MadonnaListen

Are you looking for something exciting to do on the grid that isn’t just shopping related? I’ve got just the thing for you then. The Indie Teepee event starts on the 21st of July and has everything you could ever ask for. Here is a list of just about all of the things you’ll be able to do and see at the event which is going on it’s 3rd year and the way I see it, it’s only going to get better and stronger.

– Almost-daily DJ sets and live performances
– Art installations by Bryn Oh, Nodnol Jameson and CyanideSlushy
– Thematic theatre performances by Guerrilla Burlesque
– Creative Forum
– Shopping
– Fashion show
– Machinima
– Speed dating
– And more to come…

I was granted early access to see what the scenery looked like and I even took a few pics other than the blog picture that you’ll see later in this posting. The photos I took honestly do not do this place justice as you need to come look for yourself and experience some of what Indie Teepee has to offer.

The above photo is the greeting area/landing point to the event, past this line there is magic that awaits you. There are three parcels that are visually stunning and whether or not you are an avid photographer or just like to snap pics in your free time, you’ll want to make sure you capture some memories of yourself and anyone you bring with you (groups of friends are certainly encouraged).

Other important things to mention about the event are:

– The Landing point (providing teleport HUDs and gift bags for the public)
– 3 beautifully designed parcels, each representing one imagined future.
– 2 music stages
– Special set designs for theatre performances
– An amphitheatre for talks
– Photogenic spaces for creating memories

Indie Teepee will run from the 21st of July to the 6th of August. You can find out more about this event from their social media access points which I will provide for you below.

▶ WEBSITE: http://www.indieteepee.com
▶ FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/indieteepee/
▶ FLICKR GROUP: https://www.flickr.com/groups/indieteepee
▶ MIXCLOUD: https://www.mixcloud.com/IndieTeepee

Before I get to the photo I took for the basis of this blog I’m going to post a snippet from the press release for the event that I find very important and a good message. One in which I think makes this an event that helps bring people together through the love of creativity and music as well as art.

“The Indie Teepee of 2017 dares Second Life residents to dream of and thrive in worlds that are possibly to come. While again welcoming live music performances, original mesh designs and the creative forum, Indie Teepee also looks forward to introducing fun, new attractions, such as performance art and social activities.

In this home, there are no strangers, just friends you haven’t met yet.”

I hope you enjoyed learning about this event, I’m going to leave you now with my entry which was also photographed at the Indie Teepee Event grounds. I’ll be back with items from the event in upcoming posts and I look forward to sharing them with you. Until next time, stay stylish fellas.

[#387] It’s All About The Pentiums Baby!

What y’all wanna do?
Wanna be hackers? Code crackers? Slackers?
Wasting time with all the chat room yakkers?
9 to 5, chillin at Hewlett Packard?

It’s All About The Pentiums” – “WeirdAl YankovicListen

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.


HAIRlock&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.

HEADCATWA – 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.

BODYBelleza – 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!

GLASSESBALACLAVA – 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!

Call And Answer” – The Barenaked LadiesListen

After taking a look into the nice things from my excursions to the Hair Fair and to The Men’s Dept., I have another great look for you that also has items from Men Only Monthly and a preview of what is coming from the Souled Out Event that starts on the 10th of July and just so I don’t get caught up in getting too wordy I’m going to jump right into it with my thoughts on what made this blog entry complete.

HAIR⊱ { Speakeasy } Seb Hair ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Hair Fair ’17

Going with a hair that is a little ear length and combed off to one side with shaved undersides is one of the current trends in male hair. The one thing I can say is that everyone has their own vision for the style and Speakeasy is certainly no different. There are 5 different color HUDs you can purchase or you can get all of them in the available FATPACK. It does come with it’s own omega compatible hairbase unless you have one that you like and is just as suitable.

HEADCATWA – Shaheen (Bento) ♯ ☆NEW

EYES⊱ AG. Enchanted Eyes ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Souled Out

Coming Soon to the Souled Out Event is new eyes from Avi-Glam. The “Enchanted Eyes” are being sold in 3 different packs of 6 eye colors or you can choose to buy the full set as a FATPACK. Included in the package are the standard mesh eyes with a HUD as well as HUDs for Catwa, LeLutka, and also Omega appliers. These eyes are very vivid and life like and if you are a fan of eyes as I am you’ll want to have at least some of these in your collection. They will be available for purchase on July 10th, I’ve included transportation for you to get there when the event opens.

FACE⊱ Clef de Peau: Tony T2 ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ TMD

“Tony” is the latest skin from Clef de Peau that you can find in the July round of TMD. There is a lot of customization with this skin as provided in the Catwa applier. You can have freckles as an option as well as facial stubble. There is also the choice of using the included brows or forgoing them and using one you might prefer more. Another nice feature is that there are body shapes for each of the current bento Catwa heads; I find that wearing it in conjuction with the Shaheen head that my avatar looks a little like Rami Malik, the actor who is known for his roles in the Night At The Museum movies and also the television show, Mr. Robot.

BODYBelleza – Jake

JERSEY⊱ OUTLIER.// Revenge Baseball Jersey – Sky Blue ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ M.O.M

Now I will admit that I’m a huge baseball fan so when I saw this item at Men Only Monthly I really thought long and hard about it because in little under a week the MLB All-Star game will be played in Miami. While this jersey is reminiscent of the old Florida team’s logo that moved to Miami (and not my favorite team or least favorite team by any means). I figured I’d give a little nod to one of my favorite sports by throwing this on and featuring it in a photo.

SHORTS⊱ {COLD-ASH} CHINO Shorts ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ TMD

What’s more casual than a baseball jersey when hanging out? Wearing chino shorts with it to maximize the comfort while still looking good at the same time. {COLD-ASH} has new CHINO Shorts at the current round of The Men’s Department and there are many great options to choose from. There are two different sets (Plain and Colors) with HUDs to change the color of the shorts as well as the belt. There is also the ability to change the belt to a striped version if that is more desireable. The two color sets are sold together as a FATPACK if you are having a hard time deciding between which on you like better and want it all. Sizes included for this product are Belleza, Signature, and TMP. Sadly there is not a size for SLink Physique users or Standard sizing.

SHOES⊱ [ VERSOV ] NICEOV BLACKWHITEGUM ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ TMD

[ VERSOV ] is back with another new style of sneaker at The Men’s Department. The NICEOV sneakers are just the thing to complete a look such as the one that I’ve put together. The shoe comes in 15 different style/color combinations and all of them can be purchased together in a FATPACK. What is great about this is there are sizes for just about all the major mesh bodies for the fellas and the gals so if you’re looking for a new pair of sneakers this would be a good place to start.

There’s plenty more to come from Hair Fair as well as The Men’s Department and other great events like We Love RP and Summerfest ’17. I hope that you do check out the stores and events I featured in this entry and remember to pick up demo’s before making that purchase. A shopper that makes a great find is a happy shopper in the long run. Thanks for taking a look, be well and as always…stay stylish fellas!

Pieces” –  Red  ♫Listen

post381_01post381_02

It’s time for another new look from yours truly! I’ve visited some of the best shopping destinations and stores to bring you some great items along with another visual that was done with passion. Yes, the theme of this could be interpreted as a bit moody but I think it has a good place and a message that many things can heal wounds and emotional distress.

Last month DROT re-released a collaborative with C.A.M.O. and it was first available at Men Only Monthly, this was the first opportunity that I’ve had where it fit into a look I was trying to put together. The “Fisherman’s Beanie” is a hat with built in hair that you might find a fella wearing it that works on the docks. It comes with not only with a HUD to change the color of hair you’ve purchased but also one to change the color of hat you wish to wear. It works well with just about any hairbase, I’m just using the one that came with the No. Project’s “Nuel” skin because it is Catwa compatible and it is easy to take on and off, making it very versatile.

Also from DROT is the “Tintable Mesh Beard” that is up for sale at the Signature Event until the end of the month. This beard is re-sizable via script and can bed colored to your desired tone by editing it with your build/edit objects tool. Considering that I wear my Catwa head a majority of the time and feeling that this beard would fit better on a Signature head, all things considered it works out pretty well with a little finessing. If you are a fella that is into thick and bushy facial hair then you’ve got a great product here.

ManCave is a new event that just started that is guy-centric and features clothing, skins, furniture and accessories all for the discerning male. I found a pretty good amount of things from this event so it tells me that it is off to a good start and I’m looking forward to seeing this progress into a great place for us men to visit each month.

{Cold-Ash} is at it again with a seasonal upgrade to it’s “MONTANA” tee. There are three new design types that you can grab to step out in casual style this summer. Consisting of striped, dotted, and marl patterns, “MONTANA” is sure to keep you looking great in any casual setting or just lounging around at home. This re-release comes with fits for the leading male mesh bodies (BELLEZA, SIGNATURE, SLINK, and TMP) and you can get each of these patterns all in one as a FATPACK. Thank you to {Cold-Ash} for providing a review copy to their bloggers, as a long time fan, shirts like this are the type I like to just about live in on a daily basis.

It’s been a while I brought the SLink Physique body out but for this look I did it with a good reason. It helped make my look fit just right as the jeans I am wearing did not have a GIanni option to them and I liked them so much I wanted to feature them. At The Men’s Department this round, Razor has released the “Denim Jeans w/ Studded Belt”. It was even hard trying to pick out the style of denim but in the end the “Stonewash” won out. Besides the studded belt, the other feature that I like best about these jeans is that they have a back pocket with a wallet and chain attached. I can’t quite say why but this kind of style has fascinated me for a long time. This particular jeans look like they’ve been put through the ringer and could be the wearer’s favorite go to pair of jeans.

You can also find the Semller “Two-Plat Sneakers) at TMD. These comfortable kicks have a great feature where you can choose the width of the sole of the shoe which you don’t generally see in footwear on the grid. Normally you get one or the other but with the included HUD you can change them whenever the mood strikes. Just like usual, I’ve purchased the FATPACK of these shoes so I can maximize the potential of styles available.

MESANGE has also been gracious enough to send a review copy of their “Kitej Eyes” which are for sale at The Chapter Four event. Fifteen different iris tones await those who are looking for something different and exciting for their eyes, which are omega applier compatible as well as the included standard mesh eyes. What I like most about this brand is that is is never the “same old same” you often find with eye makers. The brand truly gives something different and refreshing with every release.

Very rarely do I find jewelry that I like and want to feature but for this look it is a little different. FLI. recently released the “Nolex Ring” at their mainstore location; this ring comes in three metal tones (Gold, Platinum, and Rose Gold). This ring has a design similar to a watch ring but instead of having a timepiece on top it has a multitude of diamonds set in. It has a bit of flash but I don’t feel it is overly done to where it draws attention away from the rest of the outfit.

I encourage you to take a look below at the full styling credits and take a trip to the stores and events featured in this entry. Before making a purchase you should always try demos to ensure your total satisfaction. I look forward to bringing you another new style very soon and as always, stay stylish fellas!

I think I need help
‘Cause I’m drowning in myself
It’s sinking in, I can’t pretend
That I ain’t been through hell…

Help” – Papa RoachListen

Another weekend approaches and there’s plenty of goodies to cover. For those of you who are returning readers, welcome back! For those of you who are just finding this little space on the web for the first time then I kindly greet you and hope that you enjoy the sights of These Conversations Kill.

This entry is predominantly about The Men’s Department, which opened its doors to a new round on the 5th of June. I managed to find a lot of goodies to share with you, one of which is a review copy. There are so many good things to find there this month that it could take several posts to cover them all and that’s even piling a bunch of them up in this current look I’m about to discuss. Since there is so much to talk about, let me get right into it.

Modulus once again has another new hairstyle reflective of one of the most notable roman emperors in history. Last time I covered the “Caesar” hair and now just released is the “Julius” hair. While the styles bare a similar resemblance to one another, the “Julius” has longer hair in front. There are five color packs that you can choose from or the option to buy all of them at once for more variety and value. As with their previous release, this is definitely a great style for summer that I think you gentleman would really like.

As a member of the {Cold-Ash} blogger team, I was honored with a copy of the “JONAS” Muscle Tee. I have nothing but good things to say about this product as it fits perfectly with the pants I am about to talk about in a few moments. There are two different sets of color packs you can choose from: Classic and Light, (Classic has 8 different colors, Light has 6). There are sizes that will fit just about every male mesh body out there including the new Belleza “Jake”. If your someone who likes to be out in the warm weather and dislikes having any kind of sleeves, this is definitely an item for you. Look on the bright side, you’re able to show off those muscles when you are out and about for people to take notice.

Clef de Peau, they have become a very versatile brand as they’ve branched out from just being male and female skin designers. They also have launched clothing lines for both the gals and fellas as well and are very appealing whenever you find them at an event such as TMD. They have just released a set of clothes to which I only selected the pants as I already had my top lined up. When I came across the “Bootcut” Pants, it was truly hard to pick a color because there were so many good ones to choose from but in the end I went with Navy as most times I play it safe and choose monotone colors like black or white. These pants are perfect for those of you who like to wear boots of any type, well maybe save for cowboy boots. They certainly go great with high tops such as the ones I am wearing in this look that I’ll be talking about shortly. Clothing like this makes me look forward to the next Clef de Peau release.

The moment I saw the advertisement for the “FEARLESS STOMPERS” from [VALE KOER] I knew that I had complete my look. They were not available right away on opening day but I already had the majority of my outfit complete and all I needed was some footwear and these were just what I needed. With it being [VALE KOER] I couldn’t resist buying the Fatpack as the unlimited amount of customization that can be achieved by doing so made it an easy sell. What also sold me about these shoes is that they are a combination of a Chuck Taylor and a modern style boot. Inside the product package there are sizes for both male and female mesh bodies and also an unrigged version for those who have yet to make the plunge to mesh (by now most people have) or those that don’t have the right body to make fitting work for them.

Now that I’ve covered everything in this look that is at TMD, I’m going to move on to the Souled Out event in which I am wearing the “Lucent Eyes” by Avi-Glam. This item is also a part of blogger pack which I was given the full set, which consists of 25 different iris tones. These eyes are very well made and would be ones that I could easily wear for every day non-blogging. Besides the included mesh eyes, there are also HUDs for Catwa, LeLutka, and Omega compatible eyes. Also you have the option between Small, Medium, and Large sized pupils. If you’ve been waiting for the right time to shop for a new set of eyes, then this would be the time and product to get.

Knot & Co. is putting on the Only Summer Project in which BodyLanguage SLC has been kind enough to offer the “Thumbs Up A” Bento pose pack. This pack consists of 6 poses with included mirrors. So for those of you who want to take a picture showing how much you like something, this pose pack definitely deserves a thumbs up!

I’d also like to quick give a shout out to the Lockwood sim where these photos were taken. It’s a very well put together pose-apocalyptic sim that is definitely worth exploring even if you are not a photographer. I’ve included transportation to get there if you want to take a look at it, it’s certainly worth it in my opinion.

That should do it for another entry and I encourage you to follow the transportation to the stores and events available below in the full credits and be sure to grab demos first to ensure these products are right for you. It’s been an honor bringing you this look and these photos and until next time, stay stylish fellas!

Sold my soul to a sweet melody
Now I’m gone, now I’m gone, now I’m gone

After a small little break I’m back with some great new items from some of the designers and events that you gentleman all know and love. With that I’m going to get right into going over what went into this look so let’s get started shall we?

On the 20th of May a new fully stocked round of Men Only Monthly began and let me say it was a pretty good one for me personally. I feel like I went on a mad shopping spree when I went in there. There are several things from the event that went into this look which makes me happy because I don’t always get to post everything I buy at a certain event unless it’s a review copy or I have more alotted personal time so when I am able to feature the things I purchase it feels like a personal win.

The first item item for the look is the “Haunting” hair from Stealthic. This relatively new brand has had back to back hair items at the event and they have both been very well made from the textures used to the ability to style the hair in different ways which is starting to become a new trend on the grid and I certainly do not dislike it. There is also a hairbase that you can purchase in addition but other hairbases do work (as I used a different one in this look that is a part of the No. Nuel Skin)

Also from the event, FLI. released a canvas type skater shoe simply called “Canvas”. Of course by now you know that I have a soft spot for shoes like this and this pair is most certainly no exception. It is modeled after a very popular brand of shoe of which in the real world I own a pair of which is even cooler that I can also wear them virtually. The only downfall about this product is that it is only for standard sized avatars and does not include a shoe shape which normally would not help someone with a mesh body like myself. With a little bit of resizing, I managed to make this work perfectly with my Gianni body but I’m not sure how well it will work with others as I have not tested it. I do hope in the future that FLI. decides to step up a little further by making shoes for the different mesh bodies that are out there. I think that it would certainly take the brand to even further heights.

Kinky is back with another round and while normally this kind of event is not my style, there are items that do interest me that are not exactly part of the theme of the event. Stray Dog, one of my favorite skin designers (and a lot of other people as well) have the “Hunter” skin for sale. Coming in three different tones it is compatible with the Catwa family of heads. There are two seperate HUDs included, one of which is a browless version. Inside these HUDs are several different options. There is the regular skin, a version that makes you look angry, and also freckles. You can also add kiss marks to your face as well if you are out and about being lascivious. All in all, I think this is another great addition to the skin line. Also for those of you who may not know, you can get the new body appliers (right now strictly for Gianni) at the Stray Dog flagship store.

Representing The Men’s Department in this entry are the “Blake” jeans by PARKER. These rolled cuff jeans work well with the canvas shoes that I am wearing and also have that ripped look that I seem to employ quite often in some of my outfits. There are 6 different denim types you can choose from if you make a single purchase, however, for those those who buy the full pack there are two extra denim choices as an added bonus. These jeans come in sizes for Gianni, SLink Physique, and TMP mesh bodies.

The Gabriel “Zipped” Jacket was an item first featured at last months Uber event. It is one of those cases where I just was not able to put this look together (I didn’t have the shoes at the time) before the event ended. I really like how this item fits and seamlessly works with the jeans without any clipping. You get two versions with this product, one with a shirt and one without. The one thing I say this item lacks is the ability to change the shirt color and while white is very neutral and versatile, it is just nice to be able to have options in case you have a pair of jeans or pants of a certain color and you want to match them better. Overall this is a really great product and very highly recommended.

Lastly, Nivaro recently released a few new beard appliers in their store. I am wearing the “rugged” beard style which comes with three different HUDs (for Catwa, Omega, and Signature respectively). Within each of these are five different colors: White (which is tintable to whatever color you wish), Black, Bornw, Blonde, and Red. There is also a button that you can press if you want to remove it without having to go through any extra steps to take it off when you want to go clean shaven or want to wear a different style. One of the things I like best about this is it gelled well with the hairbase I am using, as it is one of my peeves when your hair and beard do not connect and leave a strange looking gap between them. Nivaro has caught my eye and I’ll definitely be returning there to look at other styles.

On that note I believe it is time to stop rambling and let you get to what you love most: shopping. Now that you’ve been given the skinny on what went into this look I will leave you all with the full style credits below including what I didn’t cover in-depth. As always, keep it stylsh fellas and we’ll see you next time out!
