[#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!

So let the frenzy begin! It’s March 10th and you know what that means? That’s right…it’s time for Skin Fair. I’ve got plenty of coverage coming from this event and I’m excited to share with you.

Let’s start with Avi-Glam’s latest skin called “Kai”, it comes in 8 different tones (Ivory, Fair, Light, Honey, Latte, Tan, Dark, and Cocoa) with appliers for both [SIGNATURE] Gianni and TMP mesh body types. For the face it is only for CATWA mesh and bento heads.

I paired it with a recent release from Reach shapes. This specific shape is called “Asher” and you can get it at their main location as well as on their marketplace. I’m fast becoming a fan of this brand’s work and I’ve learned that you don’t have to follow their included style-cards to make yourself look great. I’ll be showing you their Skin Fair products in upcoming entries so keep an eye out for those.

I have a couple of items here from one of my fave clothiers on the grid, {COLD-ASH} that I am going to share with you. You might remember that I featured the RILEY straight leg jeans from the Signature Event a few posts back. Well now I am showing their boot cut version that is available also at the event until the 13th. It comes with the same denim color hud and also choices for changing the color of the belt or simply not having one at all. I might have mentioned that you also get three leg lengths: Low, Mid, and High depending on what type of boots you want to pair them up with.

At the current round of The Men’s Department, {COLD-ASH} has released the “MONTANA” shirt. It comes in two different color styles (Light and Classic) I would definitely recommend this item if you’re looking for a nice fitting shirt that you’d want to wear just about any day of the week. Not only does it have the plain color choices but it also has those colors with designated designs on them. It comes in the [SIGNATURE] Gianni size as well as Classic, SLink Physique, and TMP with a loose waist and slim waist option. You can’t afford not to pick this tee up, it definitely rocks.

Versus is back again with new items and new teams battling it out to see which brands are superior. I encourage you and anyone you know to check out this event as they have something for everyone and it’s fun to take part in the voting process and while I was there picked up some awesome new shoes to go with my look.

X.co has released the X-3 Yj sneakers which I have chosen the Black with White variation but there are a total of 6 different color styles to choose from. These are the kind of sneakers you could wear to just about any casual setting or even getting together with the fellas for a game of hoops. Sizes for this include [SIGNATURE] Gianni, SLink Physique, Standard, and TMP body styles.

Lastly I’d love to give mention to Chat Noir, I’m finding that their single mens Bento poses are really nicely done. I’ve used two different ones for this photo session which were once in events but have migrated to their main location for you to take a look at.

Now that you know just about all there is about this look, I am going to leave you to go shopping at any or all of the locations below in the credits. Enjoy your trip and I will be back again soon with another transmission for your viewing pleasure. Until then…stay stylish fellas!
