[#477] Root Of All Evil

You point your finger and play the victim
So take your best shot
Release the pressure

CFO$ (feat. Incendiary, ♫Root Of All Evil

For those who know me pretty well could tell you that I’m a fan of professional wrestling, I have been for a very long time. There’s always one time of year that excites me more than any other and that’s when it’s time for WrestleMania. I’ve seen every single one of them (the first few I was a bit young but when I was old and had access to them, I watched them and have watched most of them multiple times). I could probably go on forever about it but that would probably bore the non fan to death and that’s not really what I’m here for.

However, with that said, this particular blog post is an homage to one of my current favorites that is a part of World Wrestling Entertainment’s third brand, NXT. I patterned my look and the scene after a man named Aleister Black. I’ve always been a fan of the characters that seem to have a bit more edge to them and embrace their inner darkness and he does it to near perfection (as nothing is perfect). With every video or interview I have seen, I’ve become more and more of a fan and I believe people should check things out for themselves and base their own opinions so if you are a fan of sports entertainment (I still prefer the word wrestling) and you are not familiar with this man…google or youtube are definitely the perfect source for more.


For the second blog entry in a row I kept things simple and focused on one shot from the scene and made sure that it came out the best that it could and what you see above is the choice that was the winner. I definitely shoot more than one angle but I always go with the best angle that just gives me that feeling that it is the right choice.

The backdrop in the scene is from Anxiety (who doesn’t love their backdrops?) I thought that this definitely fit the darker tone that I was looking for and just in case anyone has any questions in their head, I’m not devil worshipping or anything like that. I’m merely meditating in a quiet and ominous cavern to tame my restless mind and focus my energies.

My outfit is purely L&B both the suit jacket and the slacks are a part of what is now being sold as a set. When the suit jacket came out a month or so ago at FaMESHed, I already had the slacks from a previous purchase so I was able to just pick up the jacket on its own but for those of you who do not own either of them, it’s a deal as a package and I’d recommend it. Quite a few color options in the included HUDs (the one that is for the jacket gives you the option to chance not only the color of the jacket but also the shirt and tie).

Last but not least is the pose which is from my friends at Image Essentials. The “Stretch” is a set of five yoga inspired poses and when I saw the meditation pose I knew that was the final and very awesome cherry on top of this scene sundae. As far as setting the mood goes, this definitely hit the top of the scale and came out how I had seen it in my head.

There are plenty more new things for me to blog this week which is now about half over so I’m going to get back to that and wrap this entry up and get you to the good part (the credits). For those of you who might be new to the blog and want to follow or get a hold of me, the social media contacts are to the right in the side panel. I always enjoy hearing from people if they have a song they’d like me to use as a soundtrack to a post I’d be more than happy to look into it.

Until our paths cross again, onto the next conversation…

[#352] Them Bones

Dust rise right on over my time
Empty fossil of the new scene

Them Bones” –  Alice In Chains  ♫Listen

Skin Fair will be closing in just a few days so I thought I would sneak in at least one more look from the great event in hopes to get you to check it out (if you haven’t already that is.) Also you’ll find in this entry new items from the recently re-opened Men Only Monthly. Let’s get into those details!

I remember when I was really big into wearing my LOGO head a skin creator called “Bold & Beauty” but they had only made items for CATWA heads. As much as I liked them I just couldn’t seem to pull myself away to give it a try. Fast track to some time later and I’m enjoying my CATWA Bento head, Bold & Beauty released the “Keith” skin at the Skin Fair. I liked how it looked in the advertisement so I decided to give it a go. Making sure that I got the appliers for the [SIGNATURE] Gianni body, I went with T2 because I thought T1 was too light and T3 was too tan for the type of look I normally wear. It comes included with a Bento shape to make it look the best that it possibly can and I didn’t use a different for this particular look, but in the end I was very happy with how it turned out in combination with the other items I’ll be telling you about.

Men Only Monthly as I mentioned before is back…and back with a vengeance. I managed to find so many great things there that I actually included several of them here in this look. It just goes to show you that it is one of the top events for us fellas out there besides The Men’s Department. It goes to show you that without places like this for us to go, it would be a little more difficult for us to continually find fresh things and new creators as well as products.

Drot has a new hair to offer at M.O.M, which is called “Tobi”. I comes with a demo of a beanie but you are more than welcome to try any that you might think work that are already in your inventory. I personally did not so I used that one and my only disappointment in it is that it was not color change. The hair if you wished to could be one that standalone but it seems a beanie hat tends to make it a little cooler looking and a little more of an edgier look. There are are several color packs for you to choose from or you can get all of them (like I did) for a multitude of choices. I found it hard though that Drot only included hairbases for the standard tattoo layer and TMP head choices and not Omega or Catwa. I do hope they consider doing this in the future to optimize their products look.

The facial hair that I am wearing is a new creation from Diego Wolves (Dodo Rage) of U-Body fame. He’s created the v1 beard which you get a HUD that allows you to choose between three thickness levels as well as either an all black or tintable color choice as well as appliers for CATWA/Omega and also Standard avatars. Knowing that Diego can create items besides great shapes and still have them be as fantastic makes him a truly versatile creator. I look forward to seeing more from him in the future.

Speaking of versatile, Cerebus Xing, makers of items from mechanical tails and sharp talon nails, and various other items have created a clothing release for Men Only Monthly. They have a group of various graphic tanktops available for purchase and I chose to feature the “Necro Jams” version. It comes with a skeleton graphic on it and comes in Black, Gray, and White colors and sizes included in the package are: [SIGNATURE] Gianni and TMP mesh bodies.

Another round of Cosmopolitan is almost in the books and just in time I was able to feature the AGATA “Bob” Pants. It has a choice of 6 different colors (which of course you can get in a FatPack) and is sized to fit the [SIGNATURE] Gianni body only. I chose the Gray/Charcoal color to match the White tanktop that I am wearing.

I’ve got an item from The Men’s Department also in this look in the form of the “LOLITOV” Sneakers from [ VERSOV ]. I really like this brand they seem to always have a great variety of footwear that are usually containing the type of size I need for whatever I am wearing. The pair I have on here are the BLACK+GUM which are kind of reminiscent of old school sneakers with an untied look. Sizes included are Belleza, Maitreya, SLink, and TMP (for the gals) and Gianni, SLink, and TMP (for the fellas) along with unrigged versions for Standard avatars.

I thought I would just pass along that [SIGNATURE] has just released update 3.4 of their GIANNI body. You may wonder what the big deal is about this and you know that I’m going to tell you. They have managed to make the hands Bento compatible so for those of you who did not go out and grab the Vista Animations hands, you’ll now be able to use Bento enabled poses without having to worry.

Last thing I’d like to give a brief mention to are my two prop helpers, Skeleton Lamp, and Happy Skeleton. Skeleton Lamp is a product of BackBone which makes all sorts of cool gizmos, props, and such. Happy Skeleton was a great find a few weeks ago during Fifty Linden Friday at CURELESS. I would still buy it if it wasn’t 50 lindens but it made the decision quicker and more painless. Both of these items are well made and worth giving a look or their stores a look. That’s my advice for this installment.

I look forward to bringing you more great items next time, until then you know the drill, stay stylish fellas!
