“I sit here on the stairs
‘Cause I’d rather be alone
If I can’t have you right now
I’ll wait, dear“
“Patience” – Guns ‘N Roses ♫Listen♫
It seems that lately I haven’t been posting as much as I have been known to do but perhaps it is because I’m in a little bit of a creative slump that I am working through. It seems anyone who is worth their grain in salt knows that it’s not always easy to get things from their head into whatever medium they are working with. This could be said for me. I did manage to come up with a classic tune for the theme of this look, also sort of a play on words if you are able to make a connection through the photos.
There is a little bit of everything that went into the look for this photo session with some great events that are still going for a bit longer and also some new hunts for those of you who are interested in them, and to be honest they are really pretty fun.
I’ll start off with the skin I’m wearing. “Arthur” can be found at the Stray Dog main location as part of the Destination of Hope hunt which is in conjunction with the Relay for Life Charity. If you are unfamiliar with RFL, they are a charitable organization which centers around raising funds for cancer research. While Gac Akina, the owner of Stray Dog and other great creators are putting out their items for this hunt for only 10L, I encourage you to at least donate extra to RFL. It’s for a good cause and if my donation or yours can at least contribute to helping one person then what is there to lose? Getting back to “Arthur” it comes in the 02 Tone only and has separate HUDs for a skin with brows and one without. Each skin comes with a freckle applier as well for those of you who have them or want to have them.
A new round of TMD has started but as I was looking for items in my “closet” I came across the Mind Carlberg set which contains a shirt as well as underwear but considering I wanted to wear more than just that I chose to leave the undies behind. The colorway I chose for this set was the Pink/Cream set which comes with a HUD that you can choose either pink sleeves and a cream shirt base or vice versa. I like roses so it seemed like a logical choice for me.
Also from last months TMD (I just missed the cutoff by a few days…isn’t that always the case?) are the L&B Swear “Salvage Denim Jeans”. I am finding for the value of the fullpack you get so many more choices then buying one single denim color. As with many of the latest L&B Swear releases, these jean shorts come with an exclusive set of denims found only in the fatpack. I love how these look and they fit exactly how they should. Sizes included in the package are: Aesthetic, Classic Fitmesh, Gianni, and SLink Physique.
ULTRA is still going strong until the 15th of June and they are having their Anniversary round. There are many different goodies you can find there and I managed to come across the “Flash Pump Trainers” by [VALE KOER]. These are reminiscent of the pump style shoe that were popular during the 90’s but with a little more modern updated flair. This is another brand that I tend to always purchase full packs of because the customizations on them is out of this world. You could literally not wear the same combination style twice unless you wanted to. Included sizes in the package are: Belleza, Maitreya, and SLink (for the gals) and Gianni, SLink, and TMP (for the fellas) as well as Unrigged for Standard sized avatars.
Pseudo is one of the backdrop creators that I have a love/hate relationship with. Don’t get me wrong, the quality is over the top which is what I love about them but the thing I hate about their gacha machines is that I never have an easy time getting complete sets so some of them are incomplete. Back in April they had a really great set that I finally am getting a chance to use one from. It’s called the “Back Exit Scene” which looks to take place at the back of a building where there is a door and a bit of Banksy type graffiti thrown in for that extra something. I combined that with a pose from the “And So On” Set A from Le Poppycock that you can find at the current round of Men Only Monthly.
I think I’ve just about covered everything involved in the process of completing this post. Down below are the full credits with taxis to take you to each location of the item. Keep in mind that you should always try Demo’s when available just so there is never any doubt left behind. I bid you good shopping and until next time, stay stylish fellas!
