Tell me, how would you define this?
You witnessin’ the finest
Yeah, you never know what you can do until you try it
Let me tell you…sometimes I get this crazy second wind at night and I end up at my desk taking photos that turn out to what I consider to be satisfactory and then jump to start writing this part of the blog and it’s late but I’m just really hyped up. It is often a mixture of watching music videos on Youtube or putting an outfit together that just sparks something that I have to do it or it gets lost. When that happens I don’t get angry with myself necessarily but I am disappointed in what would be consider a wasted opportunity.
I was sitting here listening to “Destiny” by NF and I thought it kind of relates in a way to my blogging journey. Though he’s looking to become super well known and probably famous and in the virtual world it’s a bit different and really being famous in that way is not as glamorous as it seems at least the way I view it anyway.
Personally I just want to be looked at by my peers as someone who puts a lot of energy and passion into what he does at the end of the day. I love finding a scene or creating one (with or without help) and then finding a pose and a look to try and tell some kind of story and I don’t really always spell it out because letting people decide what they see for themselves is really how I consider art to be. It’s just like music and I’ve said plenty of times that my interpretation could be much different than the writer’s was at the time it was put on paper (or typed because we are in an age of technology afterall).
My primary focus this month has been Skin Fair as well as The Men Jail but that doesn’t mean I haven’t thrown in a few things that are new from other events I enjoy or stores that I blog for. Take for instance the beanie/hair combination I have on right now from lock&tuft, which seems to have an element of things coming full circle.
Not to long ago I wrote about Brenna and I going on trial with Alyxx and we know him now as Elijah, which is what the hair I am wearing is called. Who would have thought that the name of a hair he made long before we ever met him would play into his choice of names? Before I get too sidetracked…this past weekend it became official and we have welcomed Elijah fully into our family. He is a great addition because he truly fits in and has a similar personality to mine.
To speak more about this beanie/hair combination, I really like the amount of colors that you can make the beanie as well as the fact that it has the roman numeral for the number 13 (some that are superstitious may shy away from it but I don’t mind the number myself). There is also the amount of colors in the packs to color the hair with. The power of choice can be a great thing for the indecisive in us all, why not just cut out the middle man as the stores FATPACK option will not break you even a little.

As you have all seen over the course of the last few weeks that Skin Fair is not just about skins. The stores that participate in the event may also be creators of mesh body parts (heads or bodies), make-ups, facial add-ons, tattoos and shapes. The latter two play a role in my current look for this entry; one of them happens to be Gloom. They provided two shapes and a set of eyes for this year and I am now on the second and final shape.
When trying things like shapes it is best to keep an open mind (which I have). This shape is vastly different from many of the shapes (including my own) that are out on the market. I would be apt to say that this skin is geared towards possibly teen avatars in the sense that it definitely gives off a very youthful appearance even compared to other shapes and the body type is very skinny and not as muscular in nature. I was slightly skeptical of what it would look like with some of the skins I already had and I did try a few before I decided on “Damian” by Session Skins.
I’ve also got a new ink sleeve in the form of “Hourglass” by Endless Pain Tattoos. I have dabbled with their products in the past and have not been disappointed and the same can be said for this tattoo. I like that with the Signature body I can apply it to just one arm instead of both and leave the other one bare or have a different tattoo if I chose. Belleza has tattoo targets now as well I believe with version 2.0 of their body but there are still some things with it that haven’t been fixed so I’m sticking with Signature until I am given a reason not to.
I really like the hourglass that is just right below the bend of the arm which gives it its name. When I get in the mood to wear ink on my body this will likely be one of the ones I rotate between to keep things freshened up and I don’t get bored of tattoos easily.

Lately I’ve been kind of using some of the same pose packs and I wanted to do something different so I was sorting through some things and came across a pose pack from SVP Poses named “Coutcha”. This is a new store to me but I feel like they maybe haven’t been around super long but cycling through the poses gave me something to work with and found a spot to take a picture.
The best way I could describe this pose set is that it has a very urban feel to it and I could be mistaken but it is just the vibe that I get from it and that’s one of the main reasons why I found a bus stop backdrop to use for my background and the results of which I am definitely good with. Overall I think everything blends well from concept to finish.
On that note, I think it is well beyond time to wrap this up. It’s super late and I want to get a little bit of sleep and make the social media rounds. Be well and let’s all try to have a good week and until next time…see yaaaaaaaaaa!
