The December round of Men Only Monthly ends tonight (for those of you reading this after Jan 15th). I managed to put together one more look to close it out and give you the opportunity to go on a mad dash for a last minute shopping run.

I’ve also included an item from The Men’s Dept in the form of the DOUX “Uncombed” hair. Once again which it is not a surprise I picked up the Full Pack of colors which there are quite a lot to choose from and even a few surprises in the Pastels and Ombre’s HUD (Blonde with Gray, which you don’t see often). Though for this I chose a basic black color out of the Naturals HUD. I like the messy tousled look, kind of like you might have just woken up from an extremely long night and barely slept a wink.

For my eyes, I’ve gone back to the Avi-Glam “Entice” eyes and picked out an unusual color in red to kind of bring out the devious side. There are plenty of great colors in this pack to choose from as I’ve showcased them before. They come with standard eyes but also mesh ones with a HUD or if you have one of the eye systems that utilize the Omega appliers, it has a HUD for that as well. You also get your choice of small, medium, or large pupil sizes.

Now for the Men Only Monthly items, it’s an outfit that works in conjunction with one another but is sold separately. It is both the Diesel Jacket and Pants. Sometimes I am not the biggest fan of jackets with shirts that with open buttons but I think this kinda gives a look of being charming and sexy at the same time. I chose the wine colored jacket to go with the overall vibe of my photo shoot. It comes with a HUD that gives you the option to change the color of the shirt portion of the item. There are five colors to choose from.

The Diesel Pants have a suave leather look that doesn’t make you look like you have stepped out of the 80’s and were the front of a hair metal band. I find that I am really a fan of these but I had to go with my usual black but the two different tones of brown, and gray that are also available made it hard to choose.

Both of these items have a TMP, SLink, and [SIGNATURE] Gianni body fit. Sorry for those of you that use a standard avatar, there are no standard sizes included.

I kept it simple for you all today so you can go catch the last remaining hours of Men Only Monthly and enjoy the great items included in today’s look and all of the other Mantastic things available for sale…so until the next time, keep it stylish fellas! Onto the good stuff… CREDITS!

[#324] Forgive & Forget

post324_01 post324_02

Let me down, let me down like only you know how
shut me out, shut me out forgive and forget…

Forgive & Forget” –  A Day To Remember    ♫Listen

The beginning of the month is one of my favorite times because it means the return of my favorite events with new rounds of things just waiting to jump into my shopping cart. The Men’s Dept. is probably by far my most favorite when it comes to just the gents as far as things go. It is hard not to go wild purchasing things left and right when I am there but I have learned to reign in it a little bit but that doesn’t mean I won’t be displaying some of the best and favorite things from it through the course of the month.

From TMD for this particular look, I chose to wear the British Duffle Coat by ::K:: because I like coats that have a longer length. It has just always been one of my more preferred styles. It’s also nice that it has the built in shirt/sweater combination which comes with a HUD so that you can change their colors to get the exact combination that is perfect for you.

It is just close enough to the end of the December round of Men Only Monthly, which shuts down on the 15th so they can switch everything for the new January round on the 20th. From this event I picked coordinating pants from Ascend. The Hideo Formal Trousers go excellent with the Triple Monk Shoes. The choice of colors for the trousers was a hard decision but I felt going with a monochrome outfit seemed to suit me best. The best thing is that they come in Fitmesh for most standard avatars and also for the mesh body crowd with [Signature] Gianni, Adam, SLink Physique, and also TMP.

The shoes have an unfitted option for standard avatars and also for [Signature] Gianni, Adam, SLink, and TMP as well. The best part is that they come with a HUD to change the type of socks you want to wear. I love the choices they have added, argyle is a style that I prefer in the real world so it’s great to see it represented here on the grid.

The Crossroads event seems to be getting a lot of my attention as I used products from it in my last posting and has made it again this time as well.

tram has released a very nice long hair that flows off to the left side of the body, over the ear with a slight little pony bob at the back. Being that I have a hard time choosing hair colors I grabbed the full package which comes with your usual monochrome, brown, and blonde tones but it also has some really nice ombre tones as well which is what I used for this look. For the other item for this event I am using a pose that is a part of The Dean set from an lar [poses]. Poses for me are kind of hard to describe but I like the overall mood of this set and hope to be able to use more of them for upcoming projects.

Lastly, MESANGE has new eyes available at The Chapter Four. The Sekhmet Eyes come in 16 tones and have a newly updated HUD so that you can have different sized iris/pupils. I think it’s a welcome upgrade to the original products that were previously released. MESANGE just keeps getting better and better over time.

We’ve come to the part of the post where we part ways and I give you the credits for the look so that you can go check out these for yourselves and explore all the things offered at these great events. I’ll see you out on the grid and until then, stay stylish fellas!

[#319] Last Christmas, I Gave You My Heart…

post319_01 post319_02

But the very next day you gave it away
This year to save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special

Last Christmas” –  Wham!    ♬Listen

To those of you who celebrate it, Merry Christmas!!! And to those who celebrate other things this time of your no matter what it is, Happy Holidays to you as well. Another one is in the books and in some places a lot of the white stuff has hit, just as it has all over the grid.

In my last transmission I featured a new mesh head with the Bento technology that has been released within the last month. A lot of creators who have already made mesh noggins have started to ship out their updates with new versions of their product as well as versions with Bento. In this particular shoot, I am using the updated Adam head by Absolut-Creation (Ginger Chevalier). While there are no animation packs available at this time, the ability to change your look via the sliders in your shape adjustment section of your viewer is there. Now you can keep the look the designer has intended or you can venture on your own to make an even more unique look for yourself.

[Deadwool] is in the Christmas spirit and has placed out for their Group Members a nice little gift of the Erik gloves which come in several mesh body fits (Signature, Slink, TMP and Standard) and also in three different tones (Black, Blue, and Gray) and two pose types (Relaxed and Closed). These are great for your outdoors looks and photos. Thank you to Masa Plympton for sharing those with us.

It’s been a while since I’ve featured anything from the FaMESHed event but Kauna released a nice holiday themed jacket/sweater combination called UPCLR, which comes in two colors (Brown and Gray) with several different options including a string of Christmas lights that hang around your shoulders. Also included are a pair of trousers in the same two color options as the jacket. The sweater itself has two different festive designs in several colors as well as plain for those who are not feeling so cheery.

For the feet I’ve paired the outfit with the BOSTON boots from Antoni & Daniel, formerly the people of ODDITY3D. These great boots that have a fit for SLink, Signature, TMP, and Unrigged have many single pack color options but if you pick up the Fatpack, you get three exclusive colors for free that you would not be able to get by just buying them standalone. The value in that by itself is a plus.

I have two different products from MODULUS this go round. A hair/hat combo called, Riley, which is a little similar to the item released in the SwagBag for December save for the color/texture of the beanie which are specific to each one. You can purchase Riley at this month’s TMD.

There is also a Firepit and Stool set that you can grab at the December round of Shiny Shabby. The Firepit has different options for intensity of the flame as well as a smoke option. The stool has single pose animations for both Male and Female. It’s a nice addition to your winter decor outside and can easily keep your pixels warm while you spend time getting fresh air.

There are taxi’s waiting below for you to check out these great events and stores. Enjoy the rest of your holiday and I’ll be back again soon with something new and exciting. Until then, keep it stylish fellas!

P.S. This posting was in the 98% finality stage when learning of the untimely passing of George Michael who wrote and co-performed the inspiration used in this photo. Instead of scrapping it and using something different I am going to post it in honor of him and this timeless Christmas classic. May you rest well in eternity and thank you for your contribution to the music industry.

Bento is slowly taking over the grid and not just for the ladies. Yes, us gentlemen are getting the same treatment with some products that are slowly rolling in this past week and in the time to come. I’m still trying to get used to it and figure out the best way to use it to maximize it’s benefit with the latest tech coming onto the grid.

In this latest post, I am showcasing the new “Damon” head from [GA.EG] paired with the Essences Ian Skin that’s been one of go to skins in the last little while. I didn’t really use the sliders to edit the head much until I get a little more adjusted but there’s plenty of possibilities now that you can adjust settings like you can for the legacy shapes most of you pre-2014 remember.

The Chapter Four ends tonight and I’d be completely remiss if I didn’t encourage you to take a quick peek over there for the MESANGE “Lark Rise Eyes”. As with all of the MESANGE releases you have lots of options and they’ve now included the option to have different sized pupils via a HUD. These eyes can work with everything or just about and would definitely give you that Handsome edge that you’re looking for.

Also MODULUS has a limited edition hair, “LARS” that is available at the Limit8 event. It comes in your favorite tones and has fits for the standard avi as well as mesh ones.

Lastly, {COLD-ASH} has released a phenomenal Jacket with loads of options, which include the ability to wear a scar of just a t-shirt with it. There are several different colors you can choose from and the scarf/shirt can be color changed as well through the included HUD. If you want to look tough for like the mayor of “Pee Pants City” this release currently available at TMD will certainly fit the bill.

That is about all I have for this outing, pleasant shopping to you all and as always stay stylish fellas!

[#316] Welcome To Your Life

post316_01 post316_02

We’re back in business
You’re such a big mess
But I love you
Yeah, I love you!

When is there not newness out there on the grid? With all the events happening in December it’s truly a task to try to keep up with everything, everyone, especially with the holidays. With that said, there are some goodies I have here for you today that you are not going to want to miss so let me break all of this down for you gentleman.

You may or may not have heard that Signature, who is the creator of the GIANNI mesh body and recently the mesh head to accompany it, have an event for items related to their mesh products. Some of the top designers on the grid have contributed items to this event and today I give you just a little taste of what is available.

Avi-Glam has released their first skin for the Signature Gianni head named “Julian”. With 6 different tones to choose from there is no doubt you’ll find the right one.

Speaking of Avi-Glam, they’ve updated and re-released their Serene eyes to now include 30 different options from the original 12. If you haven’t picked these up yet, I suggest you do! There’s a different choice for whatever mood/look you happen to want when the moment arises.

{Cold-Ash} is also a part of this event and they have released the SHERMAN Sweater. With a HUD filled with many options, you have several choices to make this one of your easy to go to winter options in your closet.

TMD is also back and I have two different items both from Modulus. One is the Lou Hair, which you can buy colors individually or in a Fatpack for more than one option. Also available to compliment it is the Jax Hairbase which comes in the same color options and also has a Fatpack available.

Now that you know just some of what’s available at both of these great events, there’s no time like the present to jump right on over there. As always shuttles to the events can be found below in the credits.

Until the next time, keep it stylish fellas!
