[#357] Your Future Says Run

No you can’t go on
No you can’t even talk
Your future says run
But you can’t even walk

Future Says Run” –  Tonic  ♫Listen

On the 31st of March, These Conversations Kill had it’s 3rd Birthday/Anniversary. While I intended to have this finished by then it just wasn’t possible due to outside obligations. Since I started this little project I’ve come up with 357 different concepts and looks for the readers to do with what they choose. Take what they like or don’t like and create a style or outfit and make it their own.

Time seems to go by in a flash (pun intended) and I cannot express the amount of joy and fun that this has brought me over these past three years. What started out as an idea to make sure that a reader would be able to find the items they wanted if they were available and the exact location to get them was the intention behind what you see here today. I never want someone to feel like I did when I had seen an item on a male fashion blog but there was nothing stating where I could go to get it. Even after contacting the person who authored the blog and getting very little information, it was that exact moment I wanted to strive to produce something better and something more informative.

Thank you to everyone who has followed, liked, faved, and everything else in between. The support that I’ve been given by numerous fellow bloggers who have become great friends and to those that are not colleagues that just enjoy what I do. It all means more than I could ever truly put into words.

Also to the sponsors who have put their faith in this little space on the web to showcase their work because I value what they do. It goes hand in hand.

If you are interested in getting the mesh Flash avatar, you can grab it from 3DMeshiah on the Marketplace. I chose not to post it in the full credits because it is not the central focus of this particular entry.

Stray Dog has slowly become a very strong presence as a skin maker, becoming one of my favorites along with designers like Modulus, Clef de Peau, and even Tableau Vivant. At this current round of ULTRA you can get the Seb skin in three different tones. I chose the Pearl tone as it was my favorite of the three. In the applier HUD it comes with the regular facial skin and also freckles.

Mesange is participating in the Mens Only Hunt 9 that just started on the 1st of April and runs until 30th. There are 5 different colors to choose from as it is a Mini-Pack that is put altogether. I chose the color that looked similar to a certain Scarlet Speedster’s look like before he’s about to take off.

Also the subway background is one I had been eyeing since it became available at Kustom9 so I finally made use of it and really like how detailed it is. It made the idea I was going for a bit easier to work with. I’m not familiar with the brand ninety but if they continue to make products such as this, I will definitely be featuring them more. They are on my radar.

[high v.] is one of those stores that a pop culture nerd enjoys and that is where I found the comic inspired hooded sweatshirts. There are 9 different designs you can choose from and you can tell by the theme of this entry what mine was. Originally this product made it’s debut at an event called Level Up but I don’t recall there being much press or hoopla about it. I found out about them from the ad posted on Flickr by the store itself so I was able to get them there.

The NEOPRIME TRAINERS were previously available at the February/March round of Uber but they should be appearing soon at the Main location any time now. I picked up the full pack because of all the customization options that are available. Millions of combinations can be made from the bevy of colors you are able to pick from. As you can see I went with Red/Yellow this time but I have a feeling this will definitely be featured again in another capacity as they work well with jeans.

Lastly, I’d like to give mention to the XXY “Manly” pose pack that you can grab right now at the current round of Men Only Monthly. I really like their poses though the only small complain I have and it isn’t a huge one is that they only package pose balls. If you want to try and use them on a sim where you are not aloud to place items, you have to manually take them out before you go. As I said it’s not a big deal overall but if Xerys manages to read this little space, I’m sure not only myself but the readers would love for you to include the static poses in the package as well.

I’m going to wrap up this entry up and leave you with the credits and taxi’s so that you can go check out these stores and events and create a great outfit like this one or one of your own. Until next time, stay stylish fellas.

[#351] Shake It Like A Polaroid Picture

You think you’ve got it
Oh, you think you’ve got it
But got it just don’t get it
Til there’s nothing at all

Hey Ya” –  Outkast  ♫Listen

Well now that the weekend’s just about over it’s time to get back to business. With just a week left to go get your shop on at the Skin Fair, I’ve got another couple releases from the event to keep you entertained.

The 3rd and final exclusive release that I have for you from Modulus is called “Rocky” and is is a darker skin that comes in almond, caramel, and expresso tones. The last time I featured a skin with these tones I believe I used the caramel so I chose to switch it up and go with almond this time. With using the projector lights from LUMIPro, I think the end result turned out nicely.

Another Skin Fair release and is the second of three exclusives from Reach Shapes is the “Randall” shape. I felt it went really well with “Rocky” and made a very tough and handsome look that would slay the ladies at the club…when not in the rest room that is!

Going back to an old favorite, I’m wearing the RIOT “Eli Chill” pants. I couldn’t quite get the exact look of Andre 3000 of Outkast but I thought I would try to get as close as possible being that I used their song as a them for this session.

For a second straight entry, I’m wearing a hair made from no. match, which is called “No AIM” and it can be purchased at Cosmopolitan which is running this current cycle for another week which is the same day that Skin Fair ends so I urge you to go out and grab it. It comes with a HUD that you can change the head scarf to four different colors.

I wasn’t able to quite make it before the end of n.21 but the “Gemini Lowtops” from FLite are the perfect combination with the “Eli Chill” pants for a cool casual hangout look. Sizes for the shoe include male and female SLink, Belleza, Maitreya and also Standard unrigged for the gals and fellas that do not use any of the mentioned mesh bodies.

The backdrop you see is from the “Illusion” set from MINIMAL that you can still get at the current round of Uber. There’s not much time for you to go grab it so you might want to hurry because I’ve enjoyed using every one of the backdrops that I have used out of this set. I look forward to seeing what MINIMAL will do for their next group of them.

A blogger’s work is never done if you have ever been one or even know one in your life. It’s time for me to get back to it so I can give you a few more Skin Fair items before they close the doors for another awesome year of products.

Until next time, stay stylish fellas.

[#341] A Hero’s Gonna Save Me Just In Time

I need a hero (to save me now)
I need a hero to save me now
I need a hero to save my life
A hero’ll save me (just in time)

Hero” –  Skillet  ♫Listen

post341_01 post341_02

It doesn’t take much to realize that I am a big fan of super heroes, whether it be on the small screen, big screen, or in print form. I just can’t get enough of some of my favorites and like to learn as much as I can about them or pay tribute to them whenever possible.

One of my favorite shows on television right now is Arrow, even after 5 seasons I am still just as much of a fan as i was then. The people at Nobel Creations came out with a Gacha for the Fantasy Gacha Carnival that had an essence of The Green Arrow character so I took the chance to jump on it. While getting all the pieces took a bit of work I finally was able to complete my mission while also being able to avoid any sort of copywrite infringement.

I created a fight scene where the Emerald Archer faces off on a rooftop against the Dark Archer (or even quite possibly more recently…Prometheus). By the time I was finished with my idea from conception to finalization, I was very happy with what came to be.

Other than the pieces from the outfit, the only new item currently at an event are the “Capriccio Eyes” from MESANGE that were also featured in the last post but I thought they were just so awesome that I needed to feature them again.

If you are a fan of role-playing or of just fantasy in general then I suggest you follow the path to the Fantasy Gacha Carnival that I’ve left for you in the credits and take a look at the great items you can use for your own great adventures or photos.

That’s all I have for you this time but you’ll see me again soon…but until then, stay stylish fellas!

[#298] The Wicked Get No Rest

post298_01post298_02

Trouble on my left
Trouble on my right
I’ve been facing trouble almost all my life

{Q-Essentials} is back after a short hiatus with a brand new release and a brand new store location. For this look, I have the honor of showcasing the “Wesley Military Shirt”. The version I’m wearing is the Obsidian color, but you can also purchase it in Azure, Chestnut, Hunter, and Vino and comes in standard sizing.

You can catch a taxi within the credits to go pick up one of these or all of them if you’d like and make a great addition to your closet.

Also a part of my look are the “ESKADRY” slip-ons in DARK which are a Limit8 exclusive and only have a set number to be sold so if you haven’t been to Limit8 yet then you need to jet on over there and grab these if not having to tie shoes is your thing.

MESANGE also has a new product at the new Designer’s Circle round that opened up recently. This time it is a small package of eyes called the “Melusine Eyes”. There are 5 styles of eyes that you can buy individually or as a FATPACK. Each individual pack has your standard eyes, Mesh, and HUDS for both Omega and Genesis Lab to give you plenty of choices.

Last but not least, for all of you who have CATWA heads, here is a friendly reminder that there has been a new update released for all of their products so if you haven’t been there in a while now is the time to go get the latest version of your head so that you have the latest features and bug fixes.

That’s about all I have for you this time so maybe I’ll catch you on the grid, until then keep it stylish fellas.
