Oh, I could hide ‘neath the wings
Of the bluebird as she sings
The six o’clock alarm would never ring
But it rings and I rise
Wipe the sleep out of my eyes
My shavin’ razor’s cold and it stings
The Monkees, ♫Daydream Believer♫
End of the month time and there’s some exciting things on the horizon for me as May brings in not only the start of much nicer weather (I hope) but also the next incarnation of Pose Fair. With all of the previews I have seen of the things that will be for sale there, I know that a lot of photography enthusiasts and bloggers are going to be chomping at the bit to get their hands on things.
Not knowing where to begin I decide to start with a gacha pose set from Navajo called “Let’s Shave”. The set has 8 poses all together with two being couples poses but there are times when I’m featuring gacha items I pick one of the commons but this time I decided to change it up by displaying the single RARE pose that comes with sink and razor props.
I’ve never really done a shaving scene before and it’s about time to do so; it was fun setting it up and it ended up inspiring me to change up the setting of my own bathroom though most of it didn’t get caught in the photo itself. The shoot ended up being productive on several fronts and I like keeping my mind occupied because if it isn’t then it tends to cause trouble for me. *insert chuckle here*
After I finished taking photos and a little touching up/cropping I thought to myself I have no idea what I wanted to use for the soundtrack so the rest of my evening was spent figuring that out. I finally chose the classic “Daydream Believer” by The Monkees as I enjoy them (yeah most younger people are probably thinking wtf but give it a try it isn’t going to hurt). The song has a reference to shaving which ties everything together mostly so there we go.

8 poses in set (6 commons, 1 RARE and 1 ULTRA RARE)
Some poses come with electric shave or straight razor

Exclusive to Pose Fair starting May 04th, 2019
I‘m looking forward to the creativity that will be brought about with Pose Fair as more than anything I’ve began to consider myself more of a artistic blogger that specializes mostly in fashion but it’s poses that really help bring my ideas to life. I’m not sure if there’s a way to describe that but if there is and anyone out there has an idea of what it’s called then feel free to let me know.
This round I’m going to try and balance the singles male poses with couples poses and possibly throw in some single female things too when I’ve met my requirements to spread out my portfolio as well as manage to pair some of the items from stores I blog. 2019 has been about branching out and so far I am not sure that I’ve fulfilled that as much as I’ve liked to but still plenty of time to catch up to that.

Keith Wallen, ♫Crows♫
Soon I’ll be starting blog posts with poses from Pose Fair (which starts May 4th) and to get myself in tune with that I’ve been just kind of loosening my photo skills up by shooting some fun shots that I’ve wanted to do with poses that I’ve seen floating around various media that I’ve seen. It also helps that this entry finds itself accompanied by a perfect soundtrack.
It might be weird but I am a fan of the corvidae family (Crows, Ravens etc) and have been probably been since even before the movie “The Crow” came out in 1994. It probably started somewhere in my younger years because I was a fan of Edgar Allen Poe and many people thought I was strange because I was such a young kid and was into gothic type things before it was even cool to do it.
When it comes to that I honestly don’t care if people think I’m odd, strange or dark. It’ something that’s resonated me and nothing will change that ever… so as far as the song I’ve chosen for this post, “Crows” by Keith Wallen it fits in coordination with the pose and prop from p.o.s.e called “Weird”. Funny how these things are interwoven aren’t they?
Essentially this pose was created with a female avatar in mind but I’ve been one of those “break the ceiling” type people and make things work for me and I really loved the idea of the pose and all I had to do was adjust the props to work with my avatar and that wasn’t difficult. The best part is that two of the crow props are animated so they flap their wings as if they are actually flying.
If I happened to be a vlogger I would have been able to capture that but it’s not something that I’m all that good at so regular type pictures is all you get here until I can make videos work for me in the future.
One of the first things that’s probably noticeable about this photo is that it’s done in black and white. This was a challenge that was prompted some time ago between my brother Lucky and Stef as we intended to challenge one another each month with a specific challenge but with things getting a little hectic lately it was sidetracked a little. I can say though that I’m the first one to do it (as far as I’m aware so technically shots fired and all!)
L&B Swear updated one of their older products to include Geralt and Jake 2.0 sizing along with adjusting some of the graphic options in their “Classic” shirt and I’m all for it. I really enjoyed the shirt when it first came out and to see that it’s been updated makes me smile as it breathes further life into a favorite item. In a sense it’s like that favorite shirt of yours that you love and have washed so many times that it’s starting to show it’s wear and tear being found in a drawer brand new again.
Anyone that’s previously purchased it can hit the re-delivery terminal at Lapointe & Bastchild’s store and for those of you who missed out on it the first time? Not sure what you’re waiting for other than to get to the end of this so you can take the taxi to the store and add it to your wardrobe.
Netherwood has been a place of inspiration for some of my shoots for a couple years now; some of my favorites were taken there and even though it’s had moments where it looked like it would fall someone stepped up to make sure that it didn’t fall away like so many great photographic sims have in the past. I visit it semi-regularly and had planned to return again soon when I had the right pose for the area right near the entrance.
There is crumbled building there which I thought worked perfectly for my shot to add to the overall mood with pose and the fact I was taking it in black and white (one of the cool features of Black Dragon allows to take photos without having to post process a b+w effect). Now that I’ve taken my first truly monochromatic photo and used it officially as a blog I may do it again sometime down the road where it makes sense.

Blink-182, ♫First Date♫
I took a few days over the long weekend (for those of you who celebrated Easter I hope it was an enjoyable for you) to evaluate a few things concerning this site and the last entry I wasn’t overly thrilled with my lighting and angles. There’s only one true way to erase the negative thoughts you have about something (other than deleting it) and that’s getting back at it and making the next thing you do better in your mind. If you do not like it then there’s no reason anyone else should either because it probably shows.
Over the weekend I had a function that I got all fancy for but unfortunately it wasn’t what I had expected it to be (which is why I’m not going to mention it by name). I am happy that I had the opportunity to spend time with some great people afterward while looking super sharp. After the evening ended and I started to unwind for the night the idea came to me to take the opportunity of dressing up for a photo.
It also happened that Foxcity put their “Meet You There” backdrop up for the Saturday Sale as it was an item I’ve wanted for a while and not being able to beat the price it helped cement an idea I had in place for a while. It’s quite a romantic gesture to arrive to pick up a date with a flower (of course my choice is a rose as it is my personal favorite and one in which you cannot go wrong). The “Julian” pose set from Animosity comes with 6 different poses and two different rose props to distribute between the poses. Combining these two items together brought my idea to near completion.
Even though it’s not a new event or store release, I wanted to properly give credit to the tuxedo I have on. For years Lapointe & Bastchild have been innovators in formalwear (even before such creators as Deadwool) and the “Marc Bowtie Tuxdeo Premium Edition” really gave me this feeling that I looked really handsome and well put together which is something I needed so I’m glad I took the opportunity to put this on and go out into the (virtual) world.

Over the last few days I also contemplated on the best way to write the exits to my blogs as I’ve always considered it to be my weakest point (and I am fairly sure I mentioned it before as well). Saying things like catching people on the flip is probably a tad dated and honestly doesn’t feel like a good fit for me anyway so I think that trying to work out catchy phrases and sayings will be out for the time being.
I am also considering making some cosmetic changes to the old place as well but I haven’t decided what I want to do with it yet. I’ve had similar themes since I began blogging and possibly exploring other options may be an idea to tinker with to see if it works out better while making sure it is as easy to navigate as this version is because one thing I know for a fact is if people find it hard to get the information they are looking for they close out and don’t bother coming back in most cases.
The joy of taking photos and blogging is not something I’ve lost completely but it’s dimmed a little bit but now it’s time to return back to those days. I know that I can and while it may take some time and effort, I know that this place can exist again.
All things are difficult before they are easy.

It’s been a few since I last did a post (5 days to be exact) but I’ve been taking time to think about a lot of things; this blog being one of them. I think that if I’m going to continue to do things here that I’m going to need to change some of the ways I do them, which is what I’ve taken a small break to figure out. At the top of the list I’ve been going through the list of partnerships that I have and I know that some of them will be trimmed because right now I’m just not at the right place to give everyone the attention they deserve and or they just do not fit my plan going forward.
There are also some things that I’ve made a commitment to events wise but I do not want to be someone who says they will do something and then doesn’t. I will make good on this and finish out the remaining things that I’ve signed up for but after that it will depend on where I am at before I make any further plans or apply for things.
With that off of my chest, today’s entry is another group shot between myself, Brenna, Lucky and Stef with most of us potentially blogging our versions of the scene. At the time of writing this Stef has posted her view of the scene which came out really nicely (in fact I feel it’s the best so far) and I’m sure Lucky’s will come soon as well. I’m not 100% sure that Brenna did anything with this shoot but I’ve linked everyone’s websites so you can click on their names to check out what they all have going.
The soundtrack to this blog was one that I wanted to cover for a while (consider it a bucket list item for blogging) although I’m going to admit that I’m not very confident with how my version turned out. The scene as it was in front of me was much better in person than I feel it came out in finality but I’m probably more critical of myself than anyone.
I’m going to leave it at that for now but definitely check out the links to everyone’s sites and even look them up on Flickr and follow them (as well as fave their great work).
But I know a place where there’s always a show
The dollar decides how far you can go
Equal10 recently opened their April round and it’s definitely a good place to find some cool clothes and accessories for both men and women. Modulus has a new hair there that I was rather excited about getting my hands on as it is based off of a movie character that I am a huge fan of. There was definitely no way that I was going to let this one get away from my styling.
“Wick” is inspired from the character of John Wick (portrayed by Keanu Reeves in 3 different installments of which the 3rd has not been released). This is the first time that Chucky Hollak has tried his had at having a style which a completely parted middle and I think it’s fantastic when pairing it with a great hairbase. Of course I’m mostly a fan of black hair coloring but I can see myself trying out different tones with this hair.
Much like the last blog, my wardrobe consists of items already in my closet but the recent release collab between Tonktastic and Hermony is still really fresh. I experimented by wearing it without either version of the hood to see if it would work and to me I consider it a success and adds even more versatility to an already great article of clothing.
I also have to mention the new “James” skin by The Skinnery that my drinking buddy Mike is wearing. It’s a CATWA only applier and is intended for the Daniel head but he’s rolling with Victor and it still looks good to me. I think though that I’d be interested in seeing what it might look like without the beard (which is how the skin comes) but regardless it’s a good look.
By now it’s likely been noticed that I haven’t done much in the way of features in the last few posts but don’t worry, it’s not something I’m going to do away with because I feel like that is one of the things that combined with my thoughts on what I’m blogging gives this site it’s uniqueness. I have just not put together any scenes with items from sponsored stores or events but there will be more soon, I promise.
On that note, I’m going to turn this over to the credits so if anyone has some free time they can take a shopping break if there’s something here they like. Until the next time we meet I’ll catch you on the flip!
This time all I want is you
There is no one else
Who can take your place
I’ve seen enough and it’s never enough
It keeps leaving me needing you
Lifehouse, ♫Take Me Away♫
As I am writing this it is Friday (depending on when it gets finished it still might be or more than likely will be Saturday) and I did this little collab with Brenna, my brother Lucky, and Stef Giano (the latter two are also both excellent bloggers so click their name to get more about them!) For me this is almost a throwback photo for me as I started my journey in the virtual world as a virtual teenager. Brenna and I both attended the same school, which is where we met and the rest is just history.
When we were all discussing what kind of photo we wanted to do (several more ideas were brainstormed which may see the light of day sometime in the future) and Lucky came across the ad for the “Did You Miss Class Today?” gacha set from K&S Poses. It’s definitely something I consider to be an interesting set complete with a RARE skybox that has the chalkboard, desks and a bunch of strewn papers around. I gave Lucky and I the opportunity to play a jock and cool kid and the gals got to be school girl’s to create what I think is an great scene.
Lucky himself has already posted his version of it in the blog titled, “Love The Dumb Things We Do When We’re Young” and I am pretty sure that Stef is working on her own version of it as well but at this moment I’m unsure if mine will see the light before hers but we’ll see right?
Most of my look is compromised of things I already had laying around accept for the “Bradley” hair by Vango from Men Only Monthly. It’s more of a shorter style but I thought it worked as most of the jocks when I was in high school for real wore that type of hairstyle so it definitely fits the overall feel of what I was trying to accomplish with my part of this photo.
This may have been a team project but it didn’t mean that I wasn’t going to do a little bit of something on my own and get an angle with just Brenna and I closer up so that it could go in a special portfolio that I keep of all the pictures we take together. There may not be a lot of them so far but it continues to grow and I know that there will be even more as time goes on and the best ones get brought in world and put into photo frames and placed on the wall as should all pictures that hold special meaning.
My intentions for this blog is for it not to be super long considering that there aren’t any sponsored items in the post and overall this was mean to be just something fun to do between the four of us. That is one of the things that I’m going to try and focus on more during event down times which for me right now is mostly until the next big one in May which is the annual Pose Fair with Vintage Fair happening shortly after that so I’m going to enjoy a bit of a breather now before the heat turns up.
On that note I’m going to turn this over to the credits and give a big shout out one more time to Brenna, Lucky and Stef for all making this a super fun thing to do and I look forward to more of them to come. Most of my blog writing is more of an editorial style so this was kind of a different stretch and may not even be half as entertaining but this time I’m letting the visuals do the work more than the words.
To those of you who have awesome weekends planned I hope you enjoy them and I’ll be back again soon to give you more fashion to feast your eyes on (with hopefully some fun mixed in). Catch you all on the flip peeps!

Lady Gaga, ♫Paparazzi♫
Now that I’m blogging items for female avatars now and again I find that coming up with creative things hasn’t been harder nor has it been easier. I am finding out that I do come up with some pretty good ideas that I might never would have blogged on my own before this time so I will take it as I can get it. I love to create visual stories to songs and sometimes it’s not always the stuff I listen to all the time or every day.
It allows me to even include genre’s that I might not have considered in the past as well. Honestly I’ve never had anything against Lady Gaga prior to her turn in the remake of “A Star Is Born” in which the music is fantastic and truly shows her talents outside of the theatrics and shock value we’ve all known from her with her strange dresses and music videos.
From the moment I saw the Versov “Rodeo Drive” backdrop an idea jumped into my head right away. I had some photags from a gacha that I played last year at some point and also a great pose set from one of my sponsors, Image Essentials called “Holiday Shopping” and yeah it’s not really anywhere near the holidays right now but when you love shopping any day can be a holiday so that’s what I’m going with.
This set has eight different poses each with their own set of shopping bags for each hand so that you can show off how boss you are when you are out on a shopping spree. This set has been around for a while and I didn’t get a chance to blog it when it was new but thankfully I was able to do so now and also bring attention to it to maybe a new set of people who missed it when it was brand new.
Image Essentials – Holiday Shopping Pose Pack
Bento enabled poses (bento viewer required)
mesh bags (left and right hands) for each pose
8 total poses (static and pose HUD included)
Available for sale now at Image Essentials
So I’ve checked off the Versov backdrop and because there’s not much to say about it’s features other than the fact that is a well made mesh facsimile of what Rodeo Drive looks like with the street full of shops with trees and benches. For bloggers and photographers alike it is about as realistic as can be with perfect textures so if you’re interested in taking photos of yourself browsing stores or shopping like I’ve done this is a great way to do it.
Putting that aside, I have two articles of clothing I’d like to share from Native Urban that I was able to combine together to make one solid outfit and it also works since it is more of a outwear thing and because it could be considered a post-dated photo from the holidays with the shopping pose set.
I’ll start at the top and work my way down of course because it’s the easiest way to do it for me. The “Melo Jacket” is a cool jacket with hoodie add-on that was originally only supposed to be a male release but at the last moment Native Urban was able to update it with a fit for Maitreya so I chose to wear both of the new releases for the body because to me they looked great together. The amount of customization in the All Colors pack makes it so easy to come up with just about any combination you can think of with the colors provided.
With the weather starting to get warmer though I’m glad I quick snuck this one in before the bug to wear more shorts and t-shirts.
Jeans are a staple in every wardrobe and it could be said that you can never have enough jeans (I’ve said this before) and it is true. There are so many types that you can fit a style to whatever you are wearing and not even feel any pressure about how you look. The “Rollup Jeans” are a denim version of “The Rollup Pants” which were a previous release not too long ago. There is a good selection of denim colors that I’ll go into when I list the features and it is practical that if you’re interested in more than one color that the All Colors option will put that styling power into your virtual hands.

I hope that you’ve all enjoyed the great items I’ve featured in this post, I try to bring some of what I think are the best things about Fashion and Shopping on the Second Life grid to anyone who might visit this website. I try to stay as informative as I can and that way you can take that knowledge with you and use it however you like.
On that note I shall bid you a fond farewell for this time and see you all again on the flipside!
Baby you’ll be famous
Chase you down until you love me

I dreamed of this so long
This used to feel so strong
Default, ♫(Taking My) Life Away♫
For the last couple days I felt like I was in a very small creative block (or hole). I had an outfit (which I changed a little bit from the original plan) but no real idea what kind of scenery I wanted but I had a bit of a resurgence and took a few things I had not used yet and combined it with some new things and the results were actually as good as I hoped they’d be.
Default (the band) has always been high on my list of Canadian musicians that I’ve enjoyed listening to since as long as I can remember. One of the memories I have as a late teenager (yeah I hate putting a date on myself but can’t properly tell a story without it), going to see the band at a summer festival before they had truly made it big nationally. One of the things that I enjoy is being able to say that I’ve been a fan of a band before they hit big. It’s a small brag of course but it’s kinda cool to discover stuff before the majority (there are several bands I can say this about that are very popular currently).
The formation of the idea of this blog kinda has been circling in my brain long before this (I just didn’t know how I wanted to implement it). Tucking ideas away for a rainy day is something I do often and that way when a pose set or a backdrop comes out that fits the mold then I take advantage of what there is to work with. The Men Jail is set to open next week and Lush Poses is releasing two new pose sets and the one I am using for this scene is called “Shinedown” which is also the name of a band that I love so this just makes this that much better for me.
“Shinedown” is a set of 6 poses to which some of them have mirrors but the gist of these poses is that they are laying poses (most of which are from a face down position with one being a face up pose). I think that it played into the part of the song that speaks of dreaming as I found a really cool and colorful bed by Kei Spot from the Zodiac event to contrast the color of my clothing which I’ll get into here in a moment.
The last few months I’ve seen the poses that Lush Poses creates have impressed me and I’ve been able to hammer out some nice photos using them this one included. My advice would be to look them up on Flickr or visit The Men Jail when it opens on April 08th and find out yourself just what I’m talking about.

Lapointe & Bastchild (more specifically it’s SWEAR label) has a “henley” that many of you probably already have but if you don’t then I might have added something to your shopping list for this weekend. The attention that this store gives to its items as far as HUDs with many colors to choose from giving many options to pair with just about any color pants or denim jeans.
I know that I’ll be able to pair it with just about anything because it fits really great which is also another reason why L&B is one of my favorite stores. While now I am a blogger for them but going along with what I’ve said concerning Default, I’ve been a fan of there’s for a long time (years to be exact). The interactions I’ve had with both owners as well as their customer service over the time is everything a store should be, they treat their customers right.
For my outfit I paired the shirt with the latest pair of jeans from TORI TORRICELLI named the “Atlas Jeans”. While I am predominantly a blogger now that is on a budget, being in the group I was able to get a discount on the FATPACK before the April round of TMD even begins (which is where it will be at starting later today 04/05).
Going with a shade of blue for the shirt and the purple into an acid washed style of the jeans was just the right contrast to set the scene with the Kei Spot bed. Everything came together nicely and I’m really proud of the results of this scene/photo.

One last piece that I utilized that is not a new product but as a lock&tuft blogger I am going to give it some love because I myself love this hair. The “Ruined” hair has a bit of age on it but it still stands up to the test of time and there are not as many colors in the pack as their are in current hair products but there are still many staple colors that make it worthwhile.
This hair also comes with a blindfold which is not show here but it is meant for the kink crowd (as there are some rather naughty words printed on said blindfold). I like this hair because it’s a longer hair that’s just the right length and doesn’t cover my face for the type of shot I wanted to take here. I’m all for older releases of hairs and I’ve had this hair for a good while, obviously long before I began to blog for the store.
lock&tuft – Ruined Hair (FatPack)
60 different hairs (3 different HUDs)
Blindfold version included
HUD for Blindfold contains 4 different sayings (8 colors per saying)
Grab it right now at the lock&tuft mainstore!
On that note I think I have covered all the things I wanted to cover and hope that a few people find this post useful and even potentially check out some of what I’ve blogged here. Blogging the items I enjoy is very much worthwhile and I believe in them or why would I blog them? So much great things out there right now events wise.
I’ll get to what I can so that you stay apprised of what’s out there in the virtual world. Until the next time I will catch you on the flipside!
I thought that Alcohol was just for those with
nothing else to do
I thought that drinking just to get drunk
was a waste of precious booze
Barenaked Ladies, ♫Alcohol♫
Seems like I am on a small bit of a roll again or I managed to find something that worked right when I needed it. The Saturday Sale can be a predominantly female thing but if you dig deep enough you can find some great gems for the guys too. This past weekend I was able to cash in on the super awesome “Lucky Lounge” bar/stripclub/etc backdrop so that I could do a scene with myself walking away from it like a hot mess. *laughs* It kind of looks like I’ve had a bit too much.
If I continue to come up with ideas that have drinking or alcohol involved I’m going to eventually run out of songs. It seems that there are a lot of poses or props around these days that involve some type of liquid encouragement but hey it’s all about having fun and at least this way nobody is getting hurt (well at least I hope not).
The Saturday Sale may now be over and you’d likely have to get this awesome prop at regular cost but I assure you that it is well worth it (every last bit). There’s more background things involved in the scene but I was able to create an angle where I didn’t have to worry about it and you also did not have to see all of the things in the background that would have ruined the illusion.
Man Cave still has some time left and for you guys if you have not been to this round I don’t know what you’re waiting for. This blog is featuring two of many rockin stores the event houses under one roof. I’m going to start off with my hair (which is the “Hannibal” by lock&tuft) that works extremely well for the visual. It’s a bit fly away and has a slight mess to it to coincide with my avi just leaving the bar.
Two versions come with this hair, there is the slightly messy version that I’m wearing and a straight version along with a complete line of great hair tones to choose from. Having lots of choices is something every blogger enjoys having and I made sure that I chose a hair that would work well with the darker background scene.
Tonktastic and Hermony have been a great collaborating team for a long time and they’ve come together this time to bring us a hoodie that really kicks ass. There are so many great features that this release has including a HUD that allows you to place your hands in the pockets or keep them out or set it up to do a mix of both.
Also for anyone who owns their previous collaborations (Cotton Tee, Crewneck or Jersey) the designs and graphics from those HUDs will work on the add-ons with the hoodie. So There are so many different style combinations you can roll with and never wear the same combination twice. It makes me happy that these giants have found a way to integrate their previous releases with the current one. Word is that they are churning out another batch of these hoodies for April’s round of TMD so that’s even more hoodie fun!

Now that I’ve reached the end of my thoughts on the items I’m wearing and have used in this scene I can gab for just a little bit about my selection for the soundtrack of the post. Barenaked Ladies have always been one of those quirk and fun rock bands that you find yourself listening to that makes you smile or laugh. I thought the track “Alcohol” was very fitting and also added a not so serious element to things too as I don’t play pranks or tricks on April Fool’s Day…I just prefer to perhaps make myself look like one on virtual camera.
The quizzical look upon my avi’s face may not be able to be seen but believe me it is there and I’m also wondering what was I reaching for? Does the hoodie have inside pockets or was I scratching an itch? I don’t really know to be honest so it is up for interpretation. All in all I had fun with it and it allowed me to play around with scenery even though most of the time I’m not at all good at it.
I’m going to use this moment to drop my style information below and let everyone view this either as they are going to bed or waking up (possibly somewhere in between there). Time for me to drop this like it’s hot and wind down for the night as Tuesday’s are usually my busiest day so look for my next post somewhere around Wednesday or Thursday.
Catch you all on the flip!
Would you please forgive me?
