[#609] Touch, Peel And Stand

 

Yes I’ve finally found a reason
I don’t need an excuse
I’ve got this time on my hands
You are the one to abuse

Days Of The New, ♫Touch, Peel and Stand♫

 

Sometimes when looking through things that come through as review packs from some of the partnerships I have there are things that I usually know that there will be a few things that will likely not end up on the blog because of my comfort zone but I’ve been trying more as of late to work outside of it. This blog is visual proof of that and I am not sure how I feel about it quite yet but my initial impression is favorable.

Hitting a small stride on the naughty side, I have some items from The Men Jail that definitely fall within the category of outside of my normal stylings. I’m going to start out with the “FiDa Shorts” by Cubura. This very small shorts accentuate a certain part of the male anatomy in a very defining way especially if choosing some of the lighter colors that come in the HUD from the FATPACK.

I have to say that idealistically they are a tad snug (you’re welcome for that nugget of info).

Another thing that I don’t normally feature in my posts is decor but the “Sadistic Pleasure Rack” by Short Leash helped me come up with an overall idea for what I wanted to do with the pic which was delve into the kinky side of the world. There’s plenty of tools (not really sure if that is the right terminology but oh well don’t shoot the messenger) hanging on the rack to ideally make for an interesting night. Yes it might only be for show but it’s very detailed and would be a great addition to someone’s “play room” if you catch my drift.

Cubura – FiDa Shorts

  • Original mesh
  • 24 colors to choose (Briefs and edges)
  • 4 button metal colors
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake), Signature (Gianni) and V-Tech (Maitreya) mesh bodies
  • Exclusive to The Men Jail until 03/28/19

Short Leash – Sadistic Pleasure Rack

  • Original mesh
  • Realistic kinky tools hanging upon a wall rack
  • “The Pleasure Is All Mine” adorns the top
  • Resizable item
  • Exclusive to The Men Jail until 03/28/19

From the Skin Fair I am wearing the “Vergil Skin” from Kooqla which is a store that I am vaguely familiar with but had never really tried their products before. I was pleasantly surprised by what I found with the detail of the skin as well as the range of skin tones (of what I am wearing tone 03). The body skin has just the right musculature.

In addition to that also gave myself an edgier look with the “Fade To Black Tattoo” by MooLoo Body Art. There are so many good things to say about this tattoo…such as I like the clouds and moon up by the collarbone/shoulder area as well as the portrait bust of one of my favorite authors, Edgar Allen Poe, adorned right on the back leg.

I really see wearing this tattoo on a more consistent basis in the near future which is not a usual modus operandi of mine (I do not usually wear tattoos all the time or for more than a few days). With each new release I continue to become more and more impressed by MooLoo and in my opinion the store can hang with the heavyweights like Dappa, Speakeasy and even Bolson.

Kooqla – Vergil Skin

  • Five tones (001-04 sold seprately)
  • CATWA head skin and Belleza body skin (also sold separately)
  • Exclusive to Skin Fair until 03/24/19

MooLoo Body Art – Fade To Black Tattoo

  • Fresh and Faded body appliers
  • Applier HUD for the following:
  • Belleza (Female and Male)
  • Maitreya
  • Omega
  • Signature
  • SLink
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair until 03/24/19

There were likely a lot of song choices I could have used to be the backing but I dug into my magical bag of music knowledge and pulled out a gem from the late 90’s. This song was likely one of the only songs that trended at that time for Days Of The New but at the time it got a lot of radio airplay as I recall having heard it a lot on the weekends when I could stay up longer and listened to music before falling asleep.

I feel like it has an element to it that fits with the scheme of the blog and who knows maybe it was written for situations such as this? Music unless the writer explicitly says what it is…is open to interpretation. Whichever the case is, it works for me and I’ve now hammered out another blog that I can put to rest and leave all of you with the style credits.

Time to relax a little and get ready for the weekend I hope everyone has some great things planned and until I return with some fun new items I hope everyone takes care. Laterrrrrrrrrrrr!

 

And now I stand, and I peel for more.
Won’t you touch me touch me, I won’t let it go

[#585] More Than A Feeling

It’s more than a feeling
When I hear that old song they used to play
And I begin dreaming
‘Til I see Marianne walk away
I see my Marianne walkin’ away

Boston, ♫More Than A Feeling

My coverage for Pose Fair is close to completion as the event closes up tomorrow night but I still have a few more tricks up my sleeve before all is said and done. I grabbed my brother Paul for a shoot that reminds me a little bit of when I was younger in the real world and I used to spend time with my brother. Memories like this are fun to try to portray virtually because the internet is able to hold onto them for a long time.

Space Cadet’s pose set “Teen Spirit” is a fun one that has five different air guitar poses. Not many people I know of do it today but it was a pretty big thing to do for fun when listening to music in my younger years (This was before video games took over). Both Paul and I have different poses from the set and I cannot tell you how much fun we had with this and the coolest part is that the poses are named after musicians such as Axl Rose and Slash from Guns N’ Roses.

Many of the poses that I have used for blogs from Pose Fair are great (as are ones that I have not as well) but this definitely is a lot of fun and I think that anyone that gets this pose pack could live out their rock star fantasies.

Space Cadet – Teen Spirit Pose Set

  • Bento enabled poses (bento viewer needed)
  • 5 different poses
  • Exclusive to Pose Fair until 01/26/19

Modulus has quite a few new releases going right now and in this post the style I have on is the “Pete Hair”. It is a short to mid length style that flows to one side of the face or the other depending on which version you wear. I have seen a lot of musicians have similar hairstyles to this and using it for this photo works out for me because I feel like I choose the right direction for the hair to fall as I jam out to some Boston.

It goes without saying that if you’re a guy looking for new hair that you should check out Modulus not only just their store but also at the events they participate in which they are attached to some of the best out there including male specific ones.

Modulus – Pete Hair

  • 100% original “nex-gen” alpha mesh
  • 5 color packs with integrated color tinting HUDs
  • 40 color FATPACK is also available
  • Exclusive to Man Cave until 02/11/19

I‘ve been sticking with my closet and wearing clothes that likely have been featured a time or two here but I decided to do a little shopping this afternoon; visiting both The Men’s Department and Men Only Monthly to put together an outfit that I really like. I’ll start with my shirt which is from Chuck Size and called “FABIO”. Graphic shirts are probably my most favorite type of shirt there is and the designs that this store has on theirs is super cool to me. It only makes sense that if I am doing a photo where I’m playing air guitar to possibly one of the most well known songs of the last 40+ years that a shirt with a skeleton holding a guitar is appropriate.

The jogging pants I am wearing come from etham and can be found at Men Only Monthly. Taking into account all of the previous things I mentioned, jogging pants made it clear to me that I have kind of a retro look going on that is pretty 80’s or 90’s inspired. Might as well be comfortable while I’m doing my best impression of just about any famous guitar player out there wailing away at a guitar solo.

Paul is attired in past releases from Cold-Ash and takes after his brother when it comes to knowing good clothing when he sees it.

On that note I think we’ve jammed out a good while and you all know what’s what. Time for some credits to get you out there shopping and if the weather is anything like it is here…staying in and going on a shopping trip is a lot more exciting. If you must venture out please be safe and warm and do NOT lick frozen light poles, you’ll live to regret it!

Best regards,

B

Not long ago, Violetility, made replicas of weapons you see regularly if you are a fan of the show, Supernatural. Well much to my delight and very many other fans, it’s been done again. This time it’s a replica of what most people refer to as “The First Blade” which was a weapon wielded by one of the very first demons, Cain. That’s right, you can now own in-world the very blade that Cain and later Dean Winchester used. But beware as this may cause aggression, violence, and bloodlust. I’m very happy that this was made as I have stated in previous entries, I love the show and when I am able to create photos that are inspired by it that it makes me very happy.

Quite a few of the items used to create this look have made appearances from previous entries such as the Patrol Plaid Shirt by L&B Swear, as well as the “Joe” hair by BURLEY. Also returning are the “Seattle” boots by A&D because they went really well with the product I’m about to tell you about. It helped forge the Dean Winchester look quite well if I don’t say so myself.

At the SIGNATURE Event, A&D Clothing released the “James” jeans. While I am wearing them for the Gianni body as I did get them at the event for that purpose, they are also fitted for Classic (Standard Fitmesh), the Adam body, SLink Physique, and also TMP. Now I know not many people want to buy full packs but let me tell you that doing so for this release would not be a disappointment. Not only do you get 6 colors of jeans you cannot get elsewhere, but the HUD that controls everything has such great options such as belt color, belt buckle color, and also different options for cuffs so if you want to wear different kinds of footwear from shoes to boots you can with ease. Well worth the price in my mind. The SIGNATURE Event is running until the 31st, so you still have time to run and grab these.

MESANGE is at the Cosmetic Fair! The “Madrigal Eyes” are available with 15 different colors and the easy to use HUD that those of you who are fans of this brand know about. Each individual package contains the standard mesh eyes, as well as a HUD for Omega appliers. For those who pick up the BEAUTY PACK, you also get included in the HUD the ability to apply the eyes to Genesis Lab eyes. Lots of value for a high quality product as you can see from the up close view of them.

Also today is the last day of The Crossroads for the January round. Here I am using a pose from the XXY “Wandering” Pose pack. It has five really great static poses to choose from as you can see from the one that I am using.

I have so much more that I want to show you all but time is limited so I must send you off on your shopping expeditions while I continue to work to bring you some really great items and looks from favorite designers and events. Maybe I’ll catch you out there but until then as always, stay stylish fellas! Onto the credits, shall we?

[#288] I Can’t Sleep

post288_01post288_02
I’ll drink, often
And I don’t sleep, it’s a problem
There’s so much, the tossing
that I can’t, I can’t sleep

I hope everyone’s been having a great week so far, I’m back with another product write-up that will be sure to please the casual guy out there who doesn’t care to wear a suit or dress up every day.

Recently I discovered the brand, RIOT, via an ad posted on Facebook and decided to check into the products being advertised. So far for the gentleman, there is the Randy Tee and the Brody Jeans available for purchase. There are many colors to choose from in each product and if you love options, getting the FATPACK allows you you great customization; especially with the Randy Tee. You are able to choose what color the body of the shirt is as well as the hems like a traditional ringer shirt which I absolutely love.

The HUD’s themselves are fantastic and very well presented and some of the coolest I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing. They are very functional and aesthetically pleasing which is also a plus; I look forward to seeing more come from this great designer.

Also for Cosmopolitan which the current round ends on the 27th of August, I have the VioletlityHOLE” Skybox. It reminds me very much of a college students apartment and great for those who don’t really need a fancy entirely decorated house. This is definitely a chill pad for anyone who just wants to hang out.

There are two versions of this build, one with all of the furniture and one without that you can decorate yourself as you see fit.

Also for those of you who have purchased the NO!ProjectSIX” mesh head, there has been and update that you can pick up at the redelivery station at the store, which you can follow in the credits below. The HUD has been updated and is very nice with options for changing the color of your eyebrows, beard, eyes (if you do not use your own) and also facial expressions all in one. If you haven’t given it a try, I suggest you do so!

As I close out this posting, I certainly hope I’ve helped you make some buying choices because I promise you that you won’t go wrong with any of these items. Until next…see you out there fellas!
