Well, you give me all your lovin’ and your turtle dovin’
All your hugs and kisses and your money, too
Well, you know you love me, baby
Still you tell me, maybe
That some day, well, I’ll be blue
Buddy Holly, ♫That’ll Be The Day♫
Time for a little “TBT” in this blog post (I’ve always wanted to do a Throwback Thursday) as I gather inspiration from the late 1950’s and the tunes of Buddy Holly. There were a few other songs I thought about as a soundtrack to this theme but I just couldn’t shake the feeling I got with the this song. So I ran with it and didn’t turn back.
FaMESHed is almost about to close it’s doors soon but there is still time to get there to not only get the limited edition hair from Modulus that I previously blogged but you can also lay your hands on this pretty sweet suit from David Heather. When I saw a preview add for it somewhere on social media it was clear that I wanted to blog it and I already had the background in mind with having the FOXCITY “Show Time” limited (and now extinct) backdrop that I got at a previous round of Limit8.
The whole scene just speaks about classic and a time that’s long gone and likely will never be seen again. Yes I wouldn’t trade most of the things today for anything but there is also something about that time period that was interesting and catches my eye. The music scene was certainly a different landscape than it is today but if it weren’t for artists such as Buddy Holly a lot of the music that came after him and the musicians they inspired would not molded some of today’s acts.
The hair I am wearing is a recent release from Modulus and is now in the Mainstore as I did not get a chance to get this idea together and posted before it transitioned but it’s new to the store and worth checking out. It is one of the last few hairs that were released with just 25 colors and maybe the brand will update some of their previous work but even if it doesn’t happen the style of this hair is really cool. I like how you can pair it with shaved sides and it looks stylish. One of the other things I like about it is that it is a slicked back style which is something I’ve always been a fan of when it came to hairs and also why it fit into the grand scheme of this pic.
The pose that I’m using is from a past Gacha from my pose maker friends at Image Essentials (a very big thank you to Kay Weston for providing me this set in hopes that I could pull something off which I did!). I couldn’t think of a better way to show a scene that was similar to capturing the magic of the Ed Sullivan show which was many many years before my time but seeing clips of episodes made an impression that I just don’t get when watching stuff like American Idol or The Voice (or any other talent/variety show out there).
All it needs to be is a man, his microphone, and his music.
This was intended to be a short blog post which means I am going to be wrapping it up and I know there wasn’t as big of a write-up for this post but with there not being that many new or recent items I felt like covering the most important things was all it needed and having given a bit of a backstory about my inspiration would do that trick and I hope it has. I feel that I’ve been long winded a lot of the times so someone reading this post may feel like they are getting a break. There is more to come as I enter the final stretch of my milestone so I urge you to check back in soon to see what my next look might be and what inspired it.
Until our paths cross again, onto the next conversation…
