[#359] So Let’s Run

Cause this is not enough
I won’t wait for them to cut me up
So give me all you’ve got
They’ll never stop until they see us fall…

Run” –  Bring Me The Horizon  ♫Listen

I haven’t done a truly role-play inspired or historical type entry for as long as I can remember. So I knew it was about time when a lot of the pieces all tied together from current events such as We Love RP and Square1.

For the longest time I’ve been a fan of all things Scottish due to my love for the Highlander films and television series. You may recall in very early entries that I paid homage to them as well. So when I saw the Noble Creations “The Outlander Kilt” I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. It comes with a HUD that gives you three different cloth color choices. Yellow, Red, and Black. There is also a bag accessory (which I did not use for this photo session) that comes in Brown, Green, and Black. Sizes included in the box are for Aesthetic, [SIGNATURE] Gianni, Standard S-L, and TMP.

Also from the We Love RP event there are one of three new sets of eyes from MESANGE. This time I am wearing the “Thetis Eyes”. With 15 different color options you are bound to find a tone you like. I found #15 to be a very stunning green which I knew would fit perfectly with my Highland theme.

I’d like to take a moment to recommend the beard that I am wearing in this look. It’s made by Yuth and is called the Cyrus. I knew that I was going to like this item based on the ad for it that I originally saw on the marketplace. I did however go to their in-world location to make my purchase and went with the whole set. While it might be a little pricey at $1500L the amount of colors per HUD that you get can’t be beat; it is still a value nonetheless. I was able to size it just right and the included omega appliers made it seamless on my hardened warrior’s face.

At one of the previous rounds of We Love RP, I featured a hair from a brand named VoluptasVituralis. There were two hairs that I purchased and this is the second of those two. I bought the full pack for “Aranai” as well because I knew that I could potentially use it for several projects in the future. I really like the vivid textures on this hair, especially on the ginger tone I used.

How could I also forget that there is a new round of The Men’s Department going on? That’s right they are back with all new clothing, skins, furniture, pose props and more for you to get your hands on. Speaking of skins, I am wearing the “SHAWN” skin from Stray Dog in the Peach tone. It comes with an two different HUDS to use if you want to go with the eyebrows that were created with the skin and one for you to use your own. What also made this a great choice to use for this photo set is that there is a version that is a bit roughed up. What celtic warrior comes out of battle unscathed? Yeah, I thought so myself. Just in case you were wondering the package does include a brow shaper and body shape as well unless you have one of your own that suits you better.

Last but certainly not least is one of the reasons this visual concept came about. Image Essentials released the “RAGNAR” Bento pose set at the Square1 event. This event seems to be a newer one because I don’t recall seeing it before but this item certainly is worth going to check out if you are into fantasy themed photography. It comes with 5 different poses along with mirror poses as well as two different battle axes. Makes the warrior look come full circle I think and was a huge inspiration when I put this together. A big shout to Kay Weston for bringing this item to us all.

I think I have covered just about everything that I can think of so it is that time to wrap up this entry. I enjoyed working on this project and I hope you’ve enjoyed viewing it just the same. Until the next time, stay stylish fellas! Onto the credits!!!

[#347] And I’m Hungry Like The Wolf

Straddle the line in discord and rhyme
I’m on the hunt I’m after you

Hungry Like The Wolf” –  Duran Duran  ♫Listen

We are now on to the second installment of Skin Fair 2017 along with some 80’s inspiration. I was checking out shopping guides for events when I stumbled upon a new pose set from Chat Noir that just became available at the March round of 2nd Level. I knew right away that I had to have it so I went and picked it up and as I looked at the ad for the product I knew right away what I song I could use as a base for my next photo session.

Duran Duran was a part of my very early formative years as their songs were hits upon hits on the radio charts. Fast forward some years later and it made its way onto the soundtrack of one of my favorite console games of all time: Rock Band. Plenty of hours spent grooving to tunes such as “Hungry Like The Wolf”; it was easily a no brainer.

There are two Skin Fair 2017 submissions I have for all of you in this look. I’ll start off with the “Dimas” skin from Modulus. As with previous releases it comes with the default eyebrows look or you can go browless and use one of your own. Throw in a beard that you can combine with the brows or your own brows to finish. The style is yours to choose. It comes in the usual tones you can associate with most of the skins in the M-Bare line from Modulus.

The second item that I’m featuring is a shape from Reach called “Caleb” and I thought that the combination of the two turned out rather well. A bit of rugged handsomeness as our subject goes out on the prowl. As always with Reach products it does come with a brow shaper and style card for all the details of their ad picture. Once again I went outside the box with my own little experiment.

There is also something new from The Men’s Dept. I’m wearing the not so bad. “TIMEO”Jeans in the Used Stone denim. There are standard sizes, [SIGNATURE] Gianni, SLink Physique, and TMP to choose from and you also get a boot-cut version as well in the package. If this denim tone isn’t to your liking you can also head over there and get these in blue wash or regular stone.

I’ve also discovered a new hair creator that just released products at We ❤ RP. VoluptasVirtualis looks to be a very promising brand and after wearing their “Zeal” hair (for this I used the roots) version, I can tell you I am already a fan. The textures are nice and the hairbases are pretty good as well (which I believe are only included in the Fatpacks)

Just in time before the curtain call on the February/March round of Men Only Monthly I have a great item from ExalteD. It is a ripped tank top and with the version I’m wearing it has little blood splatters. To go along with this item they also have for sale scratch marks that are placed just along where one of the straps of the tank top is broken. Very cool idea which played into the idea for this photo session and made it that much more possible. The tank only comes in a size for the [SIGNATURE] Gianni body.

Last but not least I have the “Rhys” leather loafers which are currently available at The Crossroads. This style of shoe always peaks my interest so when I see one that comes along I always usually give it a try. The package comes with sizes for: Aesthetic, Gianni, SLink Physique, and Standard body feet with the use of an alpha layer.

Now that you’ve gained a little insight into what went into this look, it’s time to leave you with the credits so I can get back out there on hunt and bring you some more great items from the stores and events we all know and love. So until then, stay stylish fellas!
