[#414] This Hurricane…

The promises we made were not enough
The prayers that we have prayed were like a drug
The secrets that we sold were never known…

Hurricane” – 30 Seconds To MarsListen

With this scene I brought together some things to add a little culture to the entries of These Conversations Kill. After having visited the Matsuri event, it inspired me to put together this look with the things I brought home and some that I already had lurking in my virtual closet.

For those of you who might not be familiar with the Matsuri event, it is an event full of asian centric items including furniture, clothing, poses, and photography aids such as backdrops.

Aside from the event area there is a nice little town to explore as well to further give you an experience. Many of the vendors in the shopping area have a HUD that you can used to collect “stamps” by teleporting to the participating storefronts and after you’ve collected 15 stamps you can return to the event and trade them in for a prize of your choice from one of several designers.

I‘m featuring items from blog sponsors LV Designs and Go&See (whom have a great eye set at The Seasons Story as well as a gift that I’m reviewing in this post). Other creators being shown include Gabriel, Catwa, Belleza, [sYs] and BAMSE.

Shooting this scene was particularly fun for me because I enjoy many aspects of Asian culture past and present. I’ve done scenes in the past as well with it being the theme so it is something I consider to be an interest.

I hope everyone that’s viewing this enjoys what they see and it gives them a reason to take a ride to the Matsuri event as well as a trip to The Seasons Story and the other great places that make up this article.

Another adventure is in the books so I will leave you with the credits and say sayonara for now but check back again soon. On to the next conversation!

HAIRTableau Vivant \\ Eastern Promises Hair

This hair is one I’ve had in hiding for a long time. I am not sure what reason I bought it in the first place but I must have had the notion for using it and now in the present I have found just the right place for it.

HEADCATWA – Dino ♯ NEW

The latest release in the male head collection by creator Catwa Clip, this softer and more ethnic featured face is still just as handsome as the others. This appeals heavily to those out there that have been looking for a diverse looking face.

EYES⊱ Go&See * Fall * (Anniversary Gift) @ The Season’s StoryNEW

Going to an event where creator’s give you gifts just for checking it out? Heck yes! Go&See is offering as a gift for the anniversary edition of The Season’s Story – Fall edition a 4 pack of eyes specifically made for CATWA eyes. These give you just a bit of a preview of the bigger pack of eyes with the same name that is for sale at the event. Very detailed and appealing and worth giving a look.

FACE⊱ ::LV:. Noct Applier – Pearl/02 ♯ MarketplaceNEW

In conjunction with the Catwa “Dino” head, LV Designs has created a skin based off of a character from a well known video game franchise. The skin is compatible with Stray Dog 02 body appliers and also comes packaged with eye and body shapers.

BODYBelleza – Jake

OUTFIT⊱ ::GB::Katakake Haori – Kon-ai @ MatsuriNEW

Personally I am a fan of this type of attire. I think it stems back to different television shows and movies that were located in Asian countries. I also thought it would be cool to be a samurai and learn the art of wielding a timeless weapon but not for reasons of violence. Swordsmanship is much more than that.

Compatible with: Belleza, Signature, SLink, and TMP

SHOES[sYs] ZORI TABI Shoes – Black / White

These have been in my closet for a good while and were also looking for a reason to be brought out and this helped make putting together this wardrobe a lot easier. There are only sizes for classic avi’s in this package, I was able to hide my feet to make it work with the length of the kimono.

DISPLAY:BAMSE: Bushido Display

This was the first piece that started the brainstorming into what you are seeing as the final production. I love learning about swords especially those of asian origin. They are beautifully crafted and not at all clunky like some of the bigger bladed weapons in history. To proudly display this fine creation by BAMSE is certainly an honor for me.

BACKDROP⊱ *bitter vanilla* -4- b.v Kuchinashi (Brown) @ MatsuriNEW

This is one of four different stylized backdrops that can be played for in the gacha machine at Matsuri. There are different color schemes each with accompanying HUD’s to change different parts of the scene. What’s best about this is that you can take the item from the machine to the main location and trade it in for a copy-able version that you won’t have to worry about it being eaten or accidentally deleted and gone for good.


<K&S> Fearless. Bento Poses 2 (2)

This is the second part of a pose set that I used in my last entry. Another three poses that are quite different from those you find in the first set. I really like the set as a whole and hope to find more like this from K&S

[#360] They Said It Gets Easier But They Lied

Really, I’m so thankful for the people I meet,
the places I’ve seen but when she’s not here
It doesn’t feel like I’m living my dream

Miles Away” –  Memphis May Fire (feat. Kellin Quinn)  ♫Listen

After taking a small break for myself, I am back with a bunch of new things that I am truly excited about and to share with you. From this look you’ll find items from the recently open Spring round of The Season’s Story, more goods from The Men’s Department and also a look at one of my favorite items from Shoetopia.

Let’s start with the “Jake” skin from Modulus that is out now at The Seasons Story. I really like this skin as it really coincides with what I look for in a look for my avi. It comes with the options you’ve come to know from Modulus’ “M BARE” line of skins. Shapes for the brows and body are also included. The product is worth going to check out and I’m utilizing the cream tone but if you are looking for something else they have other tones that might suit you better.

Many people including myself love the [Deadwool] brand and that truly may be an understatement. I’ve been a follower of this brand since their very beginnings and they seem to continue to produce products that are truly amazing and well crafted. Their most recent release at the Shoetopia event is no exception. “Chase” is a low top style sneaker that comes in various colors but if you get the full pack you get extra bits in the HUD that comes with it. There are also built in socks which you can change as well, or remove them and go without. I’m a sucker for shoes like this and I know that these will definitely get plenty of use even if they don’t appear here on this site.

I’m also wearing the {Cold-Ash} “Tyler” tank top from The Men’s Department that uses the classic color HUD. I really love how this fits, which I am wearing it for the Gianni body. It goes great with the BlankLine “CargoPants” that were from the past version of the SIGNATURE event. “Tyler” has an option for a thinner waist if you choose to make it more fitting to your body. I like things to be a little looser so I went with the wider waisted version.

The second release of three to come from MESANGE at the We Love RP event is called the “Taomina Eyes”. These eyes are stunning as are all releases you can find from the brand. 15 different colors to choose from with a HUD that includes Omega enabled appliers. These eyes are not just for role-play enthusiasts. They can be used for everyday which is another thing I like about the majority of the releases MESANGE put out.

The bag you see me holding is the {Q-Essentials} Messenger Bag; while there is no set release date for this item, I was granted the privilege of being able to showcase it here for you guys. When it is released, I will inform you in a future entry as I link back to this post so that you can grab it when the time comes. I really like this bag and it’s made well and there will be more colors to choose from when it has a proper release.

I have to give a special mention to [Bad Unicorn] for their excellent backdrops. For this entry I went back from one of their earlier releases the “Hype-Beast” set and am using the RARE from this gacha machine. It fit the idea I had in my head so I’m very glad that I was able to make use of this.

Also be sure to check out Exile, they have a new build at their main location as well as a gift for both the gals and the fellas. They have new hair textures for their products so I think that is well worth checking it out.

Now that you are better informed about what you see in this entry, I leave you with the transportation to get to these stores and events so you can see everything they have to offer. I’ll catch you again soon but until then, stay stylish fellas!

“Once in a lifetime
The suffering of fools.
To find our way home
To break in these bones”

We are in the final days of the event called The End, there are many great Post-Apocalyptic things for the casual or hardcore roleplayer or even those who are into just taking pics with some edge to them. I really enjoy the pose set from IDK and featured one of them in my previous posts. I’ve also rounded up some great buys The Seasons Story and Kustom9, which are both going strong right as we speak and I would definitely get there as soon as you can. You can find these items and many other great ones at these events but don’t just take my word for it…have a killer shopping spree!
