I wish I can hear your voice
And don’t leave me alone in this bed
I wish I could touch you once more
And don’t leave me alone in this bed
Framing Hanley, ♫Alone In This Bed (Capeside)♫
Usually I don’t like to try and post back to back posts where the content is on the super serious side or that deals with loss but sometimes it can’t be helped. It also just so happened that I rediscovered a song as I was trying to figure out a soundtrack to aid the visual I came up with that you see above. I needed something that fit the “Bento Male Pillow Pose Pack” from [IsHere] Poses that is for sale right now at the Pose Fair. As I start to wind down the coverage for the event I definitely think this is been a very productive and creative time for me. I’m very grateful to be teamed up with such a great event like Pose Fair.
In the last few days I reconnected myself with a band that I really enjoyed and still enjoy listening to named Framing Hanley. The story behind how they got their name is rather touching and very honorable and if you’ve never had the opportunity to take a listen to them then definitely click the link above to listen to the song that serves as the background of this blog entry. To give you a bit of info on the band, someone very close to them that did a lot of promoting and photography for them tragically died in a car accident in 2006 and in dedication to her when getting signed to a major label they took part of her name as theirs.
A hunch of mine is that this song has a tie in to her as well but I’m not 100% certain but it would make sense. Losing someone is never an easy thing and it takes a lot to eventually come to a place where you’ve accepted it. You don’t ever forget but you come to the terms that this person is gone and depending on what kind of beliefs you have (definitely not trying to spurn a religious debate of any kind) there’s a chance you may see them again on the other side.
So getting back to the [IsHere] Poses set, I chose to work with this idea of going to sleep missing someone that’s been lost and longing to have them back again and not wanting to face the consequences of laying in the bed alone. I really feel that I captured the mood of that feeling well and the end results were better than I anticipated.
Here’s a bit more info about the pose set that I used a pose from in this scene.
[IsHere] Poses Bento Male Pillow Pose Set features:
- 5 bento static male poses
- Mesh pillows included for each pose
- Available @ Pose Fair until July 31st
Considering the fact that I did this shoot in just my boxers there isn’t any other clothing that I’m featuring in this post but I am wearing one of the latest hairs from Modulus which is currently a part of the Go by FaMESHed. If you’re not familiar with how that works you should definitely check out their website to get all of the details in how it works. It you want a small Cliff’s Notes version of what it’s about then let me tell you what I know.
It starts by getting a HUD at FaMESHed HQ and then you can shop at the stores currently featured for the specific month and you earn points by getting the exclusive item from those stores and once you’ve accumulated enough points you can get special items that are only available in this manner so it’s a cool way to get one of a kind items that once they are no longer available through Go, they are gone for good.
The “Benji Hair” a tuft of hair hanging down the front of the forehead going down towards the eyes and I can honestly say that you don’t see too many styles like this so to say it is unique would be very accurate. It could even be viewed as a punk rock hairstyle as I’ve seen many musicians of that genre have similar hair in the past. With each release this brand continues to get better and I know that soon they’ll be adding more female styles to their product lineup and that’s great to hear as well.
Modulus Benji Hair features:
- 40 different hair colors to choose from (via 5 applier HUDs)
- Fatpack option available
- Integrated color tinting as a part of applier HUD
- Available through August 10th as a part of Go by FaMESHed
For the second straight blog I’ve been wearing the new male bento head from Vista Animations named “Gerard”. Right now the head is in beta but a pending final release is coming soon so when that has been issued then I will certainly give more thoughts about this product as well as skins from 3rd Party designers to accompany it. First impressions though are I think the animations are superb and definitely can be a contender to the brands that are heavily favored in the market.
Keep your sights on the blog for more about Vista Animations “Gerard” in future posts!
I feel it is the appropriate time to wrap the blog up to start planning the next scene and my final coverage of July’s round of Pose Fair which the next time I will be covering it will be when it returns again in October. I certainly anticipate this next round because of this one being so enjoyable and helping me focus my creativity.
