Hit me you can’t hurt me suck my kiss
Kiss me please pervert me stick with this
Is she gonna curtsey?
Give to me sweet sacred bliss
That mouth was made to…
Red Holt Chili Peppers, ♫Suck My Kiss♫
So as I was putting this together I started thinking about how much my avi looked like Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. This of course prompted me to look through their music catalogue for a tune that I could rock to while doing what it is that I do. Being that this is a Vintage Fair post I went back in time to choose a track that I consider exactly that…vintage.
Sure the event is themed pre-80’s but the items that I’m blogging have that feel and the setting does also in a way; besides if I’m emulating Flea in some capacity he has a very old school vibe about him and has remained so mostly through the years. Remember that time he was in “Point Break”? Yeah that’s pretty vintage as well so it’s all relative really.
The post I do for the event are probably the most grueling as far as blogging goes but I have to say they really are a lot of fun and I enjoy them. The challenge that I get from seeing what I can match with what is like a puzzle, which is something I’ve always enjoyed in some form or another.
Poses featuring instruments of any kind always grab my attention and that’s why I picked out the “Guitarhero” pose by WHATEVER as the first one that I blog from the fair. There are 5 different poses to choose from and a vintage Beatlesque guitar prop to help bring it to life. Being a fan of the old Guitar Hero game series it was cool that I kind of in a roundabout way bring this all together as this blog’s soundtrack is featured in the 3rd volume of the game as a co-op unlockable song (there’s my flashing my pop culture video game nerd knowledge on you all!)
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that the guitar will have to be rezzed or edited to get the poses to work together so being proficient at it will come in handy. The guitar mesh is a cool design but the only regret that I have is that the creator didn’t make a version of each to fit the poses as not everyone is great with manipulating the axis points and getting the axis right for the best fit.
If I were to rate this item using a stars system I would give it a 4 to 4.5 out of 5 as I really like the thought behind the poses, I’m only taking away slight points for the fact that guitars for each pose were not included. Everything was nicely done and for those who love doing music themed pics this would easily make your photo rock (bad pun alert!)
A lot of cool musicians have tattoos…even pretend virtual ones right? So another new item from Vintage Fair is INker’s “Liburna Tattoo) that I have the medium opacity applied. Tattoos are not something I’m all that great at describing especially considering a lot of the ones you see are not themed and have many different kinds of phrasing and iconography so I’m going to let the close-up pic speak for itself.
One thing I can say regarding the tattoo is that it does have a backpiece with a vintage ship and that to me makes it vintage as many tattoos from the past did.

Now that I’ve already dropped two different Vintage Fair posts out before opening, I’m looking forward to when it actually officially opens so that everyone who has come by the site with interest in the items blogged can get them for themselves. Don’t worry though it will come soon enough and I will be adding the map to my first coverage post as well as the post I do when the map is released.
For the people who are big into fashion, decor and accessories of the past then this event is the best place for it and the only one where you’ll find a selection of the best stores involved. I’m probably going to say it a lot during my coverage but what’s old is new again with this event and it’s a lot of fun to revisit these things.
