[#407] Sober

Mother Mary won’t you whisper
Something but what’s past and done…

Sober” – ToolListen

Grooming myself for the soon to becoming month of October (my favorite month of the year) I decided that I was going to go for something a little spooky. It just simply took finding the right place and placing a simple red balloon for effect and the idea for the theme somewhat fits the visuals (or at least I feel they do to an extent).

Could the person in the scene be in for some nightmares? It’s quite possible and if you’re looking for an interesting spot to explore or take photos and are into macabre scenes then right now is a good time to visit Cerulean Mountain. I just discovered the sim right before I was getting ready to get this scene set up and came to check it out. There are plenty of spots that I’ll look forward to coming back to for future scenes. Products from my sponsors in this look consist of a skin from Go&See that is at the latest round of Men Only Monthly and also once again I am featuring the Byzantium Eyes by MESANGE which can be found at the We Love Role-Play event.

You’ll be able to find a tax for the aforementioned Cerulean Mountain down in the credits below. Also there are items from events such as The Men’s Department and Savoir Fair. Just as usual I encourage that all of you grab demos before you make a purchase. You’ll be a much happier shopper that way and if you see me out there you’ll give me a thumbs up and say “thanks for the heads up fella” (Okay maybe not but it sounded good). That’s all I have for this adventure but be sure to check out upcoming entries they are sure to be exciting as I know I am excited about them already. Stay stylish with a song in your soul and I will catch you on the next one!

HAIRStealthic – Narcotic

This hair was originally at the August round of n21 but I didn’t manage to get it featured until after the event was over. I do like this brand and the fact they give you a choice of different styles in a HUD. Many color packs available to suit just about anyone’s preferences.

HEADCATWA – Daniel (Bento)
EYES⊱ MESANGE – Byzantium Eyes @ We Love RPNEW
EYEBROWS⊱ [theSkinnery] Hallford Brows @ TMDNEW
FACE⊱ Go&See * Christian * @ M.O.MNEW

It’s been quite a while since Kristyna Wikifoo released a male skin for the Go&See brand but as you can see we have a new one that just came out at this current round of Men Only Monthly. 4 different tones to choose from which you can apply to Omega compatible heads. The applier features brow or browless version with each of them also having a facial hair option to them as well. It’s a very handsome skin to take a look into. There is also a shape and eyebrow shaper included for CATWA Daniel which is what it was designed to look best for.

BODYBelleza – Jake

SHIRT7mad;Ravens Dread T-shirt

Nothing but good things can be said about the products that come from Poe Cross and 7mad;Ravens. I’m really happy that products are being released now that fit the Belleza body because for example these are the types of shirts I like to wear in the real world. They have a unique style and draw people’s attention (and not in a negative way). Other sizes that come with this shirt are for Signature and SLink Physique respectively.

JEANS::K:: Slim Fit Jeans Homme Medium
SLIDES⊱ ..::ILLI::.. Slide Sandals – Deluxe @ TMDNEW

The month of September has been a great one for finding items at TMD. While it might be the time in some places in the world to cease wearing footwear like this it’s not something that you need to worry much about (or when you are exploring strange places). These sandals come with a HUD to change the look of different parts of it from the sole to the straps. For those of you who own the Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature, SLink Physique or TMP then these will work for you and there is also an unrigged version for those classic avi’s out there.

GLASSESEarthStones Eyeglasses – The Yesterday

Rounded glasses are probably one of my favorite fashion accessories of all time. I am quite sure that these are patterned after the ones worn by John Lennon which is another reason why I like them so much. Upon clicking on the glasses you get a menu to change the color of the metal frames and also the tint of the lenses which makes for added customization.

Animosity – Quan (3) @ Savoir FairNEW

Here’s another new pose set from new brand, Animosity. This set has poses in which some are to be used with a car prop; there are also different versions of some of the poses as well for different sized avatars.

[#406] Something Just Like This

But she said “Where’d you wanna go?”
How much you wanna risk
I’m not looking for somebody with some super human gifts
Some superhero
Some fairy tale bliss
I just want something I can turn to
Somebody I can kiss…

Something Just Like This” – The Chainsmokers & ColdplayListen

Thought I’d have a little fun and felt really inspired by the pose that I am featuring in this entry so I decided to do a show a little nerd love and when I was churning my brain for a them it seemed the perfect one came to mind because of the different references through it of comic book characters that I’ve been a fan of since I was a youngster.

Last entry I was wearing the L&B Swear Low Tops and have enjoyed them so much I decided to put them into another look in a different color because they matched my outfit perfectly and being able to do that is a plus when it is sometimes hard finding the right footwear. Most importantly though I am featuring three items from my sponsors Image Essentials, {COLD-ASH} and MESANGE, the latter which are at The Men’s Department and We Love RP respectively.

Even though this is a male fashion blog as per usual I’ve also included the female credits for the adorable girl you see with me. I know that there are some gals that have viewed this site and maybe there are more than I know of but I try to be as consistent as possible. I’m going to leave you with those credits so I can get to working on the next adventure. Be well until our next encounter and stay stylish with a song in your soul.

HAIR⊱ Y-U: JASON “BLK” MENS @ TMDNEW

This hair is certainly unique which is what drew me to it. I think it reminds me of when you see someone get electrocuted in the cartoons and their hair goes every which way. That is what I would describe this hair as being. It’s really cool and unique as I already pointed out. There are several different color packs to choose from or you can get them all together in a FATPACK. It also comes with Classic Hairbases and Omega Hairbase appliers for the full look.

HEADCATWA – Daniel (Bento)
EYES⊱ MESANGE – Byzantium Eyes @ We Love RPNEW

Another exclusive from my sponsor MESANGE that’s out right now at the We Love RP event. These eyes are sold separately and there is not a FATPACK available at this time but there are 15 different colors to pick from. Each pack comes with the mesh eyeballs and a HUD to change the size of the pupil as well as OMEGA compatible appliers for those of you who have eyes that can use that styem.

EYEBROWS⊱ [theSkinnery] Hallford Brows @ TMDNEW
FACE⊱ Clef de Peau – Elias T1 @ TMDNEW
BODYBelleza – Jake

SHIRT//Ascend// Eric Bow tie Shirt – Print 5

This item is not brand new but it is recent within the last month or so and was a bit part of helping me create that nerd chic look. There are tons of styles for this button up tucked in shirt. It also has a matching bow tie that you can wear. Fitting for this item include Adam, Belleza, Signature, SLink Physique, and TMP mesh bodies.

PANTS⊱ {COLD-ASH} DEAN Chinos (CLASSIC PACK) @ TMDNEW

The latest from my sponsor {COLD-ASH} which has bestowed upon me this review copy. These classic casual slacks are an absolute perfect match for the Ascend shirt. Casual but cool these pants have 8 different colors to choose from and it also includes a belt that can be color changed via HUD as well so you can match accordingly. For those of you with Belleza, Signature, SLink Physique, and TMP mesh bodies, you’ll be able to give these stylish trousers a nice home in your closet.

This is such a fun pose and makes for a really lighthearted scene that I was able to put together. You can consider this pose two ways, it could be used as a couple pose but it also has the feel where you could find a really good friend to pair up with and snap some photos. All in all another fine quality work from my sponsors at Image Essentials.

[#405] My Love Is A Life Taker

This bottle of Steven’s awakens empty feelings
Like father, step father, the son is drowning in the flood

Say It Ain’t So” – WeezerListen

Some exciting things have been going on the last few days and I’ll get to those in a moment. It’s been a few since my last entry but sometimes I get these little lulls where either life gets in the way or my though process isn’t going the way I want and when I set up a scene or go to a location to photograph a scene I want it to be as close to what I’ve got in my head as possible.

It doesn’t always work that way.

There are a few repeat items from the last look but that’s mainly cosmetic stuff like skin and eyes. Those are things that often times do not change as much unless there is a new product out that you really like and want to feature.

Good fortune has found me at the n21 and FaMESHed events as I’ve been able to find multiple items to showcase which only usually lends itself to the male events I shop because I tend to find most of my things there. I am quite happy though to be able to display things from events you might not normally see get coverage. Branching out is definitely a highlight for me. Most people are familiar with the MadPea brand which holds hunts, and has different games that contain prizes and I took a venture to their sim and was able to find a great shot to work with so if there is anyone who is looking for an interesting spot to photograph then I definitely recommend MadPea City which you can find transportation too below.

One last thing before I leave you to browse the credits and that is I recently found out that I was nominated for a Bloggy Award. Which for me is a huge honor. The Bloggies is an award ceremony that will feature a who’s who of bloggers and I’ve been nominated in the category of “Best Humorous Blogger”. What makes this truly unique is that people can vote for their favorites so if there are any readers out there that follow the blog and enjoy it and want to help then you can cast your vote at The Bloggies Ballot Site (but keep in mind you have to be logged into a Google account to be able to vote. If you do show your love for These Conversations Kill, know that I will sincerely appreciate it and a big thank you goes out to those of my esteemed colleagues that nominated me to put me in this position.

With that I’m going to leave you with the credits from the scene and some of my thoughts on products that are new to this session. It’s been my privilege and see you again on the next adventure. Stay stylish with a song in your soul!

HAIR⊱ BURLEY – Craig @ n21NEW

When a hair brand releases a hair/hat combination and it looks awesome it gets me all sorts of amped up. I like wearing caps but most times they never work out with hair so I tend to just wear the cap with a base. Burley released this snapback mid-length hair combination. It comes with a style HUD that you are able to choose if the cap is facing the front of you or it is backwards. Also you can change the hat itself with a collection of colors and patterns. There are tons of color packs to choose from or you can purchase the full product for a pro-rated price. I myself picked up the variety pack which includes most of the main hair colors.

SHIRT⊱ Tonktastic – Cotton Tee (Bundles 5-8) @ TMDNEW

This item is a review copy that was sent to me by TonkTastic through my sponsorship with Hermony. Though Hermony is not doing official sponsors at the time he is gracious enough to send me things to review as I am a big fan of his brand and the work he’s done. This is the second time the two brands have collaborated on a shirt (the first being #1-4 that first appeared at the Man Cave event in August). 14 designs in each shirt that you can combine into one HUD if you choose to purchase them all and I encourage you to do so because these shirts are mega sweet. They come fitted for Aesthetic, Belleza, Classic Fitted Avatars, Signature, SLink Physique, and TMP mesh bodies.

SHORTS{COLD-ASH} CHINO Shorts
SHOES⊱ L&B Swear Low Top Sneakers – Male @ FaMESHedNEW

Lapointe & Bastchild’s Swear brand has been one of my favorites for quite a while. I’ve purchased shirts, jeans, you name it and I’ve gotten it because they are well made and fit really well. They’ve outdone themselves with their version of the timeless classic Low Top Sneakers. Included is a HUD with two pages of different color schemes to pick from that will give you plenty of wearability. For those of you with Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature and SLink Physique bodies you’ll be able to wear these kicks and show your cool factor wherever you are at. These are at the FaMESHed event until the end of the month!

[#404] Please Understand…

Curse my enemies forever
Let’s slit our wrists and burn down something beautiful
This desperation is leaving me overjoyed
With fading lights that lead us past the lives that we’ve destroyed

No, It Isn’t” – +44Listen

Hello once again! I’m glad to have any recurring readers and those who are new to the site, I welcome you to a place were fashion and visual art collide in a virtual world. It’s been a few days again since my last entry but it seems that the outside world has been needing my attention. I wanted to quick say that the people affected by the recent Hurricanes (Harvey and Irma) are in my thoughts. It’s also been the 16th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on our country. So many things going on for so many people.

I threw some things together from my time spent at The Men’s Department which is at the mid point of the current round as well as Men’s Only Monthly that concludes its current cycle on the 15th, which means it would be the best time to take a shopping break after you take a look at what I have put together.

As I was looking around in my various resources of finding new locations to explore and take photos in, I came across Ash Falls. Upon landing there it didn’t take me long to find a spot almost right inside the landing point which means I’m going to have to return there again to look around more for spots that I can set up another scene.

At times I find it difficult to add things when it comes to these posts but I try to give the best insight I can. I hope that those of you out there that are readers find something useful here even if it is just one thing. I’m going to leave that where it is and usher you to the credits below and start getting ready for the next look and scene. Until then stay fashionable with a song in your soul.

HAIR⊱ Modulus – Cory @ Man CaveNEW

This preview comes from my sponsors at Modulus. Cory is a style that goes great with shaved hairbases or also parted ones. I would have to say if I were to classify it as anything it would be a cross between punk trends or slightly weening towards hipster. With 5 different color HUDs to choose from or the option to get all of them you are definitely going to look smooth if you choose this ‘do. You can grab this when the new round of Man Cave starts up on the 15th (delayed a few days with consideration for those who might be affected by the storms).

HAIRBASE/BEARD⊱ .:cheeky:. 3 Days Beard & Hairbase @ M.O.MNEW
HEADCATWA – Daniel (Bento)
EYES⊱ MESANGE – DragonnWish Eyes @ We Love RPNEW

This item also comes from a sponsor of mine, this time MESANGE. These eyes are one of 3 different offerings you can find at We Love RP and taking a close look at these eyes they are very appealing with 15 great iris textures to choose from. You can purchase them separately or get them all together with an included HUD that you can use with Omega and LeLutka compatible appliers. If you do not have either of those do not worry the mesh versions are still in the package!

EYEBROWS⊱ [theSkinnery] Hallford Brows @ TMDNEW

Known primarily for their skins, this time [theSkinnery] is taking a shot at eyebrow appliers for the male side of things. There are 5 different styles to choose from, in which I chose the first style as it is what appealed to me most. It wasn’t super thin or super wild…just right by my standards and I am not at all disappointed with how it looks. These will work well with just about any skin and the Catwa appliers give you several different brow color options along with tintable white so if you need to match a certain color it’s easily achieved.

FACE⊱ Clef de Peau – Elias T1 @ TMDNEW

The most recent release in the CdP skin line, Elias comes in 4 different tones (1-4) and while normally I go with T2 I felt like taking a leap and going a tone lighter just to see what it would look like and I’m not really disappointed. I’m not much for the more tan tones because I’m just not a sun worshipper or spend lots of time outside so it would be odd to have a tan for me. The package includes not only the skin but eyebrow and body shapes for Catwa heads Daniel and Shaheen for you to choose from. Of course you’re always welcome to use your own as I did for this scene.

BODYBelleza – Jake

JACKET⊱ etham – Letterman Jacket – Camo @ FaMESHedNEW

It’s not often that I wear camo themed items in photos but it seemed to work out for the outfit I was putting together. This jacket is pretty solid and finding things that fit the Belleza body is a great thing (and it is also become more of a regular occurence). The base of the jacket is regular standard jacket material but the sleeves appear to be leather based which makes this jacket even cooler. It comes with a HUD to change the built in shirt so that you can mix it up a little bit. Sizes also included here are NX-Nardcotix, Signature, SLink Physique, Standard Fitmesh, and also TMP.

JEANS⊱ ::GB:: Cotton Stripe Pants @ M.O.MNEW

When I first came across these I thought they were jeans but as I closely inspected them I found that they were as the item describes, cotton stripe pants. They come available in Black, Blue (which is shown) as well as White and you can purchase them separately or together for a bargain price. I like the fit of these jeans on the Belleza body and am happy that Gabriel is now including them in their products as I’m very much a fan. Included are sizes for Signature and TMP. Sadly there is not one for SLink included in these which may disappoint those who have the Physique body and like Gabriel products.

SHOES⊱ OHeMO – Joel Sneakers @ M.O.MNEW

Sneakers…what can I say? I love sneakers and have a hard time saying no whenever I see a nice pair at an event. Men Only Monthly had several pairs that I enabled myself to pick up and these bad boys rock. I purchased the full pack and was treated to a HUD that I could change different parts of the sneaker with many different color swatches. Customization is a plus for me as I like to have control over what colors I am wearing if at all possible. While I am not largely familiar with this brand, I feel that with the quality of these sneakers I would encourage you all (as well as myself) to give them a deeper look. For you mesh body wearers it comes with sizes for Adam, Belleza, Signature, and SLink.

Animosity – Stephan (04) @ M.O.MNEW

Poses are what bring our creations more depth and life and I know that I have said on more than one occasion (I repeat myself far often than I would like to admit) that I always like taking a look at new pose makers in the world. Animosity is a fairly new brand and is partnered up with Imitation (a newer brand as well). This is one of two pose packs that have been released at Men Only Monthly. I like the style that this brand has to offer and seems that they also are making poses that are not as familiar as you sometimes do so out there. I realize that you can only move an avatar so many different ways but it is always refreshing to see something outside of that and I believe this brand has a great start.

[#355] Bad To The Bone

On the day I was born
the nurses all gathered round
And they gazed in wide wonder
At the joy they had found

The head nurse spoke up
said “leave this one alone”
She could tell right away
That I was bad to the bone

Bad To The Bone” –  George Thorogood and The Destroyers  ♫Listen

It seems that I am on a nice little roll lately with coming up with ideas and being able to do the photo sessions and get everything organized in a timely manner. It doesn’t always work that way but when it does it makes me just a little bit happier that I can bring you info on great items.

I recently received a review copy of one of Avi-Glam’s recent skins called “Ash”. Now this was a challenge for me as it is a standard avatar skin and I have not blogged one in nearly 2 years or more. So putting this together took a lot of patience but I think it turned out well. I think it makes me appreciate the invention of mesh, not to mention Bento. I went with the “Light” tone because it was just right for what I normally like to wear. Along with this skin, Avi-Glam also released one for the TMP mesh head and also new updated body appliers which for this set of photos I am using the [Signature] Gianni ones and it looks really nicely toned. Not overly muscular and not flat either.

The VERSUS event is still going strong for a little while longer, and I am wearing the “Wash” denim tone of the SABOTAGE “Searing Denim” which comes with a HUD that you can change the color of briefs you are wearing or to remove them completely and even to have the flame graphic on or off as well. I thought that was a really cool touch but I chose to leave the flame design on because that is what makes these jeans unique in the first place.

{kokoia} has been on my radar for a little bit now with the brand becoming more noticeable in the events they are being featured in. Their “Tussio” sneakers are available for purchase at the March round of TMD, which you still have a few more days to browse before the shut down for the April round. If you haven’t already been there, I encourage you to go as there is literally just about everything there. Getting back to these sneakers, they are a true value as the package contains 10 different colors and a HUD to change different parts of the shoe. There are endless combinations to be had. I just so happened to color mine so that they resembled something closely associated with the flames on my jeans.

Wetcat Poses has been around for quite a long time and as far as I can remember, they have been here just about as long as I have in-world. They did a collaboration with LEMON to make a building prop complete with a street lamp and a fire escape. It also includes poses for couples, females and males. I am definitely about this build and hope to use it again for a project because the textures and poses are very well done. A big shout out and props to these guys for creating a really cool backdrop.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this installment and I look forward to being back with you all again soon. Until then, stay stylish fellas!
