You’re slowly disappearing from view
Appearing from my view“
“I Ran (So Far Away)” – A Flock Of Seagulls ♫Listen♫
I thought I would do a fun little entry this time and poke a little bit of fun at the 80’s genre which was a part of my childhood. Looking back on a lot of it and seeing how trends and things are now it kinds of makes me chuckle a little bit.
Two of the items featured in the photo today really helped inspire the theme and I got them from Indie Teepee (which I am a proud blogger for) and from The Epiphany event.
I‘m not sure if those of you that follow the blog ever take a look at the song choices that go along as theme inspiration but I encourage you to click the link the the video and for the younger crowd experience what was big at that time in music and style. You’ll also notice in the full credits below that there was not a pose used for this scene. The keytar has an animation HUD which makes it glow and has sounds and animations for you to jam out to; with careful patience I managed to snap a still photo without needing any kind of posing which for me is very rare.
With all that out of the way, down below is all that you need to know about this post and as always I encourage you to get demos of things first so that you know whether or not it is the right thing for you. Have a great shopping experience and maybe I’ll see you out there. Until the next time as always, stay stylish fellas!
⊰HAIR⊱ Exile – Judd (Gift /
This item was a gift set out for those visiting the Hair Fair, as of now it is not available in the store but if it does get sold as a product, you’ll definitely be told in an update of this post or in a future one.
⊰HEAD⊱ CATWA – Shaheen (Bento)
⊰EYES⊱ MESANGE – Kaua’i Eyes Mini Pack ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ The Hidden Chapter
This special set of 5 colored eyes is a part of the second half of The Chapter Four which is called The Hidden Chapter. This is where creators like MESANGE offer extra items that were not a part of the regular event. These eyes are being sold at a discount while at the event so if you are interested go check them out as once the event is over and they are placed in the main location, the price will go up.
⊰FACE⊱ ::LV:. Nathan – Pearl/02 ♯ Marketplace
⊰BODY⊱ Belleza – Jake
⊰OUTFIT⊱ GizzA – Owen Blazer Suit [Smoke-Aqua]
This suit (which is one whole mesh) was perfect for the 80’s look I wanted to achieve. I had purchased it initially at a previous round of TMD where it kind of got pushed into my closet and it wasn’t until I was putting this look together that I remembered it. Once I put it on and changed a few things on the included HUD, it all came together. Sizes included for the suit are Signature, Standard Sizes (XS-XL), SLink, and TMP.
⊰KEYTAR⊱ BALACLAVA!! Keytar ZERO-W ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ Indie Teepee
Nothing is more 80’s than a keytar. Many of the musicians from back then had these in their repertoire of instruments and were prominently featured in many a music video. I thought this was a very clever item for Balaclava to create, as many of their great items have a bit of quirkyness to them. As I had briefly mentioned above, this item comes with a HUD that you can use to animate your avatar and it also has included sounds that you can take hours to discover. A great item and while you are at it, check out some of the events while at Indie Teepee. There’s so much to do and see there!
⊰BACKDROP⊱ MINIMAL – Illusion III – *4* ♯ ☆NEW☆ @ The Epiphany
When I remembered having had a neon type backdrop I had to look no further than this item. #4 in the Illusion III backdrop gacha set. MINIMAL does a very good job with detail on their backdrops and one thing I can tell you is that a lot of them do have neon inspired elements to them which make them very unique and able to stand out. This was the perfect and last final touch to the photos you see here in this post.
