[#498] How’s It Go Again?

All my new friends
We smile at party time
But soon we forgot to smile
At anything else

AJR (feat. Rivers Cuomo), ♫Sober Up

Putting fun (or just funny) scenes together is something I do like to do even though most of the time it seems like everything on this blog is super serious. I like to try and show a little bit of everything when I can so that’s what I’ve got going on in this post. I’d say that I came into contact with this song that I’m using for the soundtrack of the blog about maybe 3-4 months ago when I was traveling and listening to the radio. I thought that it was a really upbeat type of song even though some of the lyrics to it are a bit deep and maybe even troubled. I have at times felt this way in my life and I’m sure many others have too but there’s always someone in our life that brings our spirits up and we might not have seen them recently.

This is dedicated to those people because no matter how long time passes between visits or communication they always have that special place.

As my coverage for my first round as an official blogger of The Men Jail is winding down, I have several different items that are making an appearance here because I wanted to get as much as I could in when it was applicable. The event has such a variety of things so choosing what to show has been a bit of a struggle for me but in a good way. I hear things from others saying that they have hard time blogging items from events because it doesn’t fit what they do or whatever the reason might be but I am of the mentality that I can make just about anything work and I’m going to try win, lose, or draw.

Poses are something that you can always easily apply to a photo because it’s essentially a lifeblood to help you capture something unique (unless you are a landscape or decorative blogger than that does not apply) and {Phantom Animations} latest release “Cart Saga” definitely fits the bill. “Cart Saga” is definitely something fun as who doesn’t remember goofing around in their youth at the grocery or at the local retail chain goofing off with the carts with siblings or friends. It’s very possible that adults may attempt to do this as well to a lot less favorable outcome.

Cart Friends Saga:

  • 5 singles poses
  • 2 friends poses
  • Unisex
  • Includes mesh shopping cart prop
  • Bento compatible

As a part of my look I’m wearing the Purfect “Mesh Beard A 012” which when it comes to mesh beards I figured I’d be tweaking it or trying to tweak it so much that I’d end up getting frustrated and giving up and wouldn’t end up using it but this beard was super easy to do a simple tweak and it fit my face “purfectly” ok that was a bad pun but I have to throw one in there now and then. I seriously like this beard and it’s not so much a hipster style beard and for a moment before I added hair to my look I thought I kinda had the “Eric Young” look going on (if you have no idea who he is hit up Google to learn more about him!)

Purfect Mesh Beard A 012:

  • 8 different hair tones (Fatpack Available)
  • Upper, Lower, and Full beard versions
  • 2 different mustache versions
  • Applier HUDs for both CATWA and LeLutka

My third and final item is from another brand that I’ve heard of but like Purfect is making it’s first appearance here on the blog. MP Style has been around for a while but for some reason I just haven’t gotten around to showing any of their stuff until their TMJ item “Bruno White Shorts” and could also quality as a Bermuda pant as they go past the knee. I am a fan of any short that doesn’t go too far above the knee like your inner thighs have swallowed the material and I know that some people like that style but I don’t feel it looks right on me.

MP Style Bruno Shorts

  • 6 colors to choose from
  • Fatpack available
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake), Signature (Gianni), and SLink Physique

Fortunately I’m able to show off the latest Modulus hair from The Men’s Department with over a week left in the round. Hopefully in the near future I’ll be able to get myself together with taking photos and getting them posted but sometimes my energy levels suck and I just can’t force myself to post something because then I’ll hate it and if I don’t like it how are the brands I am blogging going to like it? It’s a multifaceted process and I’ve made it goal after posting something that I realize I wasn’t feeling 100% to never consider “phoning it in” again.

The “Joey” hair is a short to mid length style that is combed off to the right, I have the sides and back of my head shaved to give it more depth. Hair is another thing much like facial hair that sometimes needs a bit of resize tweaking to look it’s best on you and I didn’t have to do much of that with this product or usually any of Modulus’ hairs.

For this particular scene I’m wearing a tone from the Browns pack as that’s been my signature hair color as of late.

Modulus – Joey Hair

  • 40 colors to choose from (5 different hair packs)
  • Fatpack is also available
  • Color tinting integrated in the HUD

I was also able to get the credits from my buddies look and can tell you that I may have to take a trip to Men Only Monthly to get the A&D “Gregory” shirt because it looks pretty cool. He’s also wearing the latest group gift from Akeruka which is the “Leon” fully loaded Deluxe Mesh Head…yes that’s right you can join their group (it costs only 150L) and you can take home a fully functional mesh head but there’s a catch (as most of the time there is) and that is it is for a limited time only so you have to get to their main location before the 1st of July otherwise you’ll miss out!

My last featured product that also comes from The Men’s Department event are the “Zoe” Sneakers from Native Urban. Don’t let the name fool you this are unisex shoes that you can wear and use for exercising, jogging, or just hanging out with your favorite people. I love that the Fatpack version has so much customization and sure in this photo I played it safe to match my outfit but I can always do something really different in future looks. Native Urban really has a good sneaker game and I’m pretty strict about my footwear.

Native Urban – Zoe Sneakers

  • 8 single colors for purchase
  • Fatpack option available (full 20 color customization)
  • Unisex
  • Male sizes for Belleza (Jake), Signature (Gianni) and SLink Physique

The Men’s Department will keep it’s doors open for this round until the 30th of June so you can take a look at what both Modulus and Native Urban have to offer as well as other top brands for a premier shopping experience. It’s one of the things that easily gets my excitement level up when the beginning of the month starts because I know that new and great guy stuff will be near.

Now that I’ve run out of wind I feel I got a bit heavy handed with writing this entry and could have probably went further but I don’t want to overkill anyone that might be reading or visiting for the first time. I’m going to take a few days and get back into the swing of things and you’ll see something new over the weekend or the beginning of the week (possibly both). Tons of fun things coming up as it’s almost time once again for the next round of Pose Fair as well as a new round of The Men Jail along with commitments to my wonderful brands I’m partnered with.

Hope you enjoy this first week of official summer and until our paths cross again, onto the next conversation…

[#479] Hey Time You’re No Friend Of Mine

Will you be there
To catch when I stumble when I fall
When I fall

Its so very clear
You left me when I had no one at all
No one at all

Creed, ♫Time

The last week or so has proven to be one giant test for me personally and while I don’t feel compelled to go into details I will say that having an outlet such as blogging has been something of a godsend because it’s helped me from falling over the edge into places that I don’t really want to go. Frankly, if I did I might not ever return from them.

One thing that I have learned is that we don’t know what’s around the corner; there are no absolutes. People come into our lives and for whatever reason sometimes they don’t stay there and there may not be a clear cut view of why or how…it just happens.

It has brought me to the thought that while time is infinite regardless of where we are within it and how long we have, it is our enemy. We can carry our weapons silently ready to fight it when it comes and each battle leaves you scarred on the inside until finally time rallies and strikes that one final blow….that’s the cycle and that’s what we have to contend with every day and most days we don’t allow our conscience to dwell or think about it.

The idea for this post has been in the making for months and I’ve had it in my head for longer than I can recall but all the pieces were not quite there yet until I came across a unique pose from SamPoses at Pose Fair. “The Fallen Angel” is exactly as it says it is with a kneeling battered wings with missing feathers and a bit of blood.

It was the last piece I needed to finally filter this idea from out of my head.

At the beginning I had purchased the Distorted Dreams “Lost Time” skybox and wanted so badly to do something with it but I just couldn’t come up with anything and so I kept it in my inventory in plain sight that I could use it the moment I had something to go with it. I love the apocalyptic broken clock tower vibe that it gives off; it also plays into what I’ve said just a few paragraphs ago as well.

Go& See released a set of eyes around Halloween last year that I’ve been itching to use as well because of the skybox, one of the eyes in the pack is a clock and thought it was a great addition to the whole atmosphere of what I had in my head visually. All of the eyes that are from Go&See are for CATWA branded eyes and will only work with them, which if you do not have a pair with a head or standalone you are missing out.

My good friend (and sister from another Mister) Lee Valentine of the LV Designs brand released a new skin at The Darkness event (if you recall in the previous post, “Shin” is also from the same brand so I am piggybacking yeah!) It is called “Angel” and comes in two tones both of which are compatible with Stray Dog tones 01 and 02 and there are two different HUDs for each tone. Not only is there a regular version of the face (with and without brows) but also a “Fallen” version with goth type lipstick and guyliner.

As much as I wanted to use the “Fallen” version in this blog entry it just did not work with the theme overall but I really think it was a great idea and concept so I’m going to give extra points to Lee for using some out of the box thinking for this release to make it even more cool and befitting of The Darkness event. The event runs until the 28th of April so you still have time to check this skin out and all the other cool items at the event.

Now that I’ve managed to finally get this idea out of my head it feels good to see it digitally in front of me and while a lot of times my thoughts are way more vivid than some of my skills can convey, this turned out nice enough that I am satisfied and can move on to one of the next visuals that I’ve had running around in my head recently or whatever may spring up spur of the moment when I see something outstanding that I want to feature right away. With that all said I am going to wrap this one up and leave you to browse the credits while there is one more day of weekend to freely get your shopping on.

Until our paths cross again, onto the next conversation…

[#460] Medicate

I am so frickin’ bored
Nothin’ to do today
I guess I’ll sit around and medicate

RX (Medicate)♫ – Theory Of A Deadman

While I was putting this look together I wasn’t quite sure where I wanted to go visually to present it on the pages of this blog; then I remembered I had the “Pills” pose from Reve Obscura. Looking at how I was dressed I looked like an athlete of some sort and I thought maybe if I find a cool gym to shoot at then I could kind of use the angle of someone who needs to use pills to keep themselves going or to keep their edge in whatever profession they are in.

That is where the soundtrack for this blog post comes in. Listening to it and really honing into the lyrics you can easily tell it is about the drug culture (more specifically in America but could easily apply to anywhere). It made a lot of sense to use it with the setting that my persona of an athlete taking medications (and most likely abusing them).


The Arcade opened up for it’s first event of 2018 and there were a lot of great products and machines and a mixture of different types of things, but there were only a small handful of things that caught my eye. I found myself trying to pick up certain figures in the Garbaggio SuperStars Vol. 2 collection (as well as help my buddy Kash out since I seem to have luck with them). The Gabriel machine has a really cool outfit which I didn’t have to play because my brother Ethan was nice enough to win me the important things (Thanks bubs!).

My favorite machine that is at the Arcade is the Versov “Beanie Gacha” which is pretty much filled with parts of an outfit for people who like skater wear (beanies, glasses…etc) but the one thing that put me over the top was the RARE sneakers which I am saving for an upcoming blog because I love the shoes I am wearing in this look). I am wearing a plain beanie from the Gacha but there is a RARE version that has color change and I like that kind of customization; it’s very high on my list when it comes to clothing and accessories. The beanie has a resizer installed in it and I only had to do a minor bit of adjusting but it nearly fit perfect right out of the gates.


Kustom9 is where you can find these super awesome sneakers from VALE KOER, named the “Squid Attack Trainers” and I love the brands customization so much that I went with the FATPACK. I did my best to recreate one of the styles of shoe they had for sale individually because it reminded me a lot of the White Ranger and his Tigerzord from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (yes there is a pop culture nugget for you!) It also happens to be some of the colors of my favorite NFL team, the New Orleans Saints. Another funny little nugget of a personal nature is that these remind me quite a bit of my bowling shoes (that are patterned after Michael Jordan) that are red and black. I could easily create an in-world version of those and I think I might in a future blog entry.

The shorts are currently being featured at the latest round of Hipster Men’s Event and come in 5 different colors (sold individually or all together in a FATPACK). The colors you get are (Caramel, Charcoal, Coffee, Goya and Smoke). I chose these for the fact that most shorts I own in reality are this length and I just have a small hang-up about shorts that are too short. Millo Copperfield has been appearing at more and more events recently and I saw somewhere on social media that there will be a store in-world soon as well which is great to see from a brand that is gaining momentum. Before I forget, the shorts come in sizes for Belleza and Signature (Gianni).

My first encounter with the brand LOB was at the February round of The Men’s Jail and I saw their “TOGYM Sport” set. I waited on it because I knew that I wanted to use it but I didn’t have an idea for it quite yet so I waited to purchase it until I started planning out the look for this blog post and had a use for it. You get a pair of workout gloves that have some kind of currency stuck in the side of the right glove. The tanktop is definitely one you would see a serious gym goer wearing to help keep themselves toned and defined. There is a HUD included that you can choose what kind of tank you want to wear (solid color or with a skull graphic). Sizing for the tank include Belleza, Signature (Gianni) and SLink and if you are looking for a great workout tank and gloves this would definitely be one of the best that I’ve seen on the grid. Take a look at their in-world store as I will have a taxi for you in the credits below (I know I’ll be taking a closer look at them!)


For my last pic I wanted to give you a more up close look of the Versov beanie to see more of it’s excellent texturing as well as more of the action of the “Pills” pose from Reve Obscura that I mentioned at the beginning of the entry. The package for the pose comes with the static bento pose and also the mesh pill bottle/pills as well as the cap. They even included transferable versions so if you would be posing someone that they would be able to use the props as well which I think is fantastic and should be something pose creators that use props like this do more of. It certainly couldn’t hurt and help photographers and bloggers who have friends or models that are not themselves posing for them.

Now it is about time to wrap it up for another blog post but check back soon for more great fashion creations from some of my favorite brands as well as new ones that I’m discovering from various events. I’ll be covering Skin Fair 2018 very soon as well as items from FaMESHed, The Men’s Department and more from the Arcade.

Onto the next conversation…

[#433] Here Comes Santa Claus

Here comes Santa Claus
Here comes Santa Claus
Right down Santa Claus Lane

Here Comes Santa Claus (Right Down Santa Claus Lane)♫ – Elvis Presley

Back by popular (or unpopular as it’s yet to be determined) demand is Hipster Santa, ready to deliver gifts to all the nerds and cool kids out there. With there being a second pose for men in the Naughty List series by Image Essentials, I had one more opportunity to totally nail the look for “bad” Santa and I think I totally got it. I decided to not to show more skin than I did the last time to kind of differentiate between the two looks.


With the Christmas holiday coming up this is likely my second and final holiday post of 2017. I usually only do a small handful as I have in the past I don’t want to saturate it too much as personally I’m not overly celebratory. For me personally it is a small doses type deal as I generally even try to avoid listening to holiday music up until the last week and a half if I can manage it but with many retail places in the world starting theirs right after Halloween it’s difficult to avoid. On the brighter side though I do have more reasons to be cheerful in 2017.


A big thanks to Image Essentials, Modulus and MESANGE (brand partners) for their contributions in making this blog entry what it is. As I was taking the photos, I had a feeling that it was going to turn out better than I initially expected because frankly I did not feel the last post I did as “Hipster Santa” turned out the way I wanted it to. I think it was due to the fact that I could have done a better job with decorating the scene for it as it lacked something but I couldn’t place my finger on it.

It also helps that this time I found a backdrop that was simplistic but didn’t feel as if it needed anything extra and it is something I picked up at the previous round of Cosmopolitan. On a side note I’m going to say that Paparazzi has been on a roll lately with their backdrops; I have been finding things that should be showing up in future blog entries so keep a watchful eye out on those.


This look has been a little fun to work with (can’t deny that) and I’ve gotten a few comments about it from colleagues and friends. That’s one of the things that this site is about is creating conversations and expanding on some of them (both the good and the bad). While this is not my last entry before the holidays I want to take the time while I’m in that mood to wish everyone a happy holiday and wish seasons greetings to all. Be sure to take a look at the credits and maybe take a quick stroll through some of the shopping events and stores for some last minute gift ideas for the fellas in your life (family, friends, significant others etc.)

Onto the next conversation…

HAIR⊱ Modulus – David Hair – FATPACK @ Man CaveNEW

The Alpha Hair line from Modulus is taking the grid by storm and at Man Cave they’ve released another new hair called “David”. This is a much shorter side combed hair that works perfectly with the “Charlie” hairbase also from Modulus. As you can see from the photos above I have shown you both the left and right angles of the hair so that you can get an idea of what it might look like before you give it a test drive yourself. 5 different color packs with 5 colors in each pack as is normal with Modulus releases and the color HUDs also have a color tint option as well to give you even more customization; is also available in FATPACK form.

HEADLeLutka – Andrea v 3.1

EYESMESANGE – Astraea Eyes – WOH GiftNEW

When it comes to poses and of course eyes, it is easier to go with an “out of the box” mentality. If something is labeled for females that doesn’t mean it won’t necessarily work for the fellas as well. I’m wearing the Hunt gift from MESANGE that you can get the hint for right HERE. While you are there take a look at some of the brands other great eye options! This gift has a HUD that includes 5 different color choices for you to use. Why not try it out as it is a gift and you won’t be out of anything if they are not for you but I have a strong feeling they’ll be just the thing for your next photo shoot.

FACETableau Vivant – Kole Tone 3

This is not a new item but since it is something I have not blogged or have not blogged much I’ll just say a little bit about it. The HUD comes with several different brow color choices (along with a no brows option) as well as several different makeup choices (guyliner and warpaint respectively). An eyebrow shaper is also included in the package as well.

MOUSTACHEKauna – Bento Moustache English [v1.2]

BEARDKauna – Bento Beard Shape Beard Shape A [v1.2]

BODYBelleza – Jake

TANKTOP⊱ *BD* ROB TANK TOP ~ RIBBED V3 ♯ Marketplace

I’ve had this tank saved in my marketplace favorites for quite some time just waiting for the right opportunity to use it and now was the time. I have wanted a fairly well put together ribbed tank (I refuse to refer to it by it’s street slang name). I figure that in his downtime “Hipster Santa” would be wearing one while chilling in his workshop getting his sleigh ready for his big journey. The included HUD allows you to choose from 12 different color tanks so you could wear a different one each day of the week if you chose as well as two different wear choices (tucked and untucked).

Compatible With: Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza, Classic (XS-XL), Signature, SLink and TMP male bodies.

PANTS⊱ [SM]art – Kringle Pants @ Man CaveNEW

Nothing is more Santa than these Kringle pants from [SM]art and you can get them at Man Cave right now. Inspired by the wardrobe of the man himself, you don’t just get the traditional red/white combination in fact you can do make your own out of 10 different colors with the included HUD. There is an option to color the various parts of the pants (there’s even a tucked candy cane in the waist that you can have on or off). These are pretty cool pants but unfortunately they only have a limited time run as to when you wear them without being really weird so run out and grab them before it’s too late!

Compatible With: Aesthetic, Belleza and Signature male bodies.

BOOTS[ VERSOV ] MOLOTOV BOOTS – FULL BLACK

BACKDROPPaparazzi – BACKDROP – Festive Fun – Green

As I had previously stated in the first part of this blog, Paparazzi has been releasing some really cool backdrops for photographers and bloggers. This was from the previous round of Cosmopolitan so if you are looking to make a last minute Christmas Card using this then head over to their main location and get cracking because there’s little time left before the holiday is right on your doorstep. The backdrop has really cool ornaments hanging and make it just the right touch to create an excellent image.

IE – Naughty List 5 (b) @ The Naughty ListNEW

For some reason I have my doubts that Santa (at least the Hipster version) is as pure as we all think he is and this just proves it. The guy looks like he has something to hide and rightfully so because he’s been NAUGHTY *gasp*. This great pose comes with the Santa Hat and bag full of presents that you see in the photos all well crafted to make your photos stand out. This item is available at The Naughty List event until the end of December so it’s worth making a trip to see if you can’t find some gifts of your own.

[#395] In A World Of Human Wreckage

When I’m lost and I’m found
and I can’t touch the ground
I’m plowed into the sound…

Plowed” – SpongeListen

This is the last weekend of the Indie Teepee event and I hope you’ve been able to get there and enjoy all the sights and sounds as well as shopping that the event has to offer. This is my last post covering the event and I hope that you agree with me that it is going out with a bang. The item I chose to feature here is a fun one, and considering I don’t do decor (or landscaping) items very much I thought it might be one of those times where I snuck one in. While I didn’t create everything you see in the background, that would go to the wonderful sim known as Netherwood. I just provided a little extra touch to complete my idea/theme.

Most of my overall look remains the same from the last few posts but I am featuring a new skin by Modulus which you will be able to find at the Mesh Body Addicts Fair that just recently started.

The next photo you are about to see is an overview shot of the BROKEN BOY giant doll by NOMAD. I submerged it in water as if it was a part of an old civilization from long ago that has simply been left dormant and decaying around what has come after it. I really liked this shot too much to edit it into the secondary features shot so I left it as was originally shot.

I‘d like to thank everyone from the event coordinator down to all the artists, speakers, musicians, and item creators that took part in Indie Teepee. This is truly one of the most unique events out there and I am seriously proud to have been associated with it as a blogger; I look forward to next years event. Here’s the full credits for those of you who are eagerly awaiting to know what took part in this photo shoot. Make sure when you hit these stores and events you grab demos and happy shopping! I’ll see you again soon but until then, stay stylish fellas!

EYES⊱ MESANGE – Wicked Game Eyes @ M.O.MNEW
FACE⊱ Modulus – Giles Skin – Cream @ Mesh Body Addicts FairNEW

This handsome devil is just the latest from my sponsor in Modulus. Giles comes in six tones (I am featuring Cream here). Also included is a eyebrow shaper and a body shape (which I did not use for this shoot). This is part of a new era of skins by the brand and if this is any indication, good things are in store for the M-Bare division of Modulus.

BEARDY-U: BRYAN “BRN” ♯ NEW
BODYBelleza – Jake
TATTOO⊱ BODY MOD – Black Roses Tattoo @ SaNaRaeNEW

CARDIGAN⊱ /Ascend/ Hiroshi Cardigan w/Shirt – Gray

This item was a holdout from the July round of The Men’s Department that I was able to find a look to compliment it with. Even though the weather for me in the real world is a bit warm yet, it’s not something I have to worry about in-world. I like how it is paired with the shirt perfectly and has a good flow to it without looking constricted. Sizes available in the package are for Adam, Belleza, Signature, and SLink and also include a HUD to color change the t-shirt if you choose to go with another color.

SHORTS⊱ RIOT / Emery Denim Shorts @ Mesh Body Addicts FairNEW

It’s a back to back entry with another new item from one of my sponsors in RIOT. I have the privilege of reviewing these slightly rolled up shorts which have worn elements and threading that is also worn and frayed. In this FATPACK there are a ton of different options for denim and at least a dozen different choices for the threading. You can purchase single denim colors but if you like variety it is very practical to go with the FATPACK. Sizes you can find in the package include Adam, Belleza, Signature, and SLink.

BOOTS[ VERSOV ] MOLOTOV BOOTS FULLBLACK

DOLL⊱ NOMAD // BROKEN BOY @ Indie TeepeeNEW

NOMAD never disappoints me when they release an item that catches my eye, which is why I chose this item as part of my blogger product reviews for Indie Teepee. I really get the feel that this large doll was inspired somehow by the Fallout games and also reminds me of something personally. Many may be way too young to remember Big Boy restauarants or have ever had them in their area. It was pretty big in the midwest and outside them was a huge doll in a similar style holding a hamburger. At first I tried to find a post apocalyptic location to shoot at but I could not find any that I was able to put this item down at but I do feel that it turned out nicely as it ended up.

Le Poppycock *La Di Da* B (Make Good)

This pose set is one I had stored away from a while back from an event and when I was looking for something I thought would fit, I found it in my unused poses but I am glad that I was able to because I do enjoy Le Poppycock and their poses. Check them out if you are needing poses because there is just about something for everyone.

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.

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.

So if you call
I will answer
And if you fall
I’ll pick you up
And if you court this disaster…

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.

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.
