You Can’t Be in Here!

“The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.” –  H.P. Lovecraft

Lovefest 2017 is upon us.  After months and weeks of non-stop planning, budgeting,  preparing and crafting, the Society of Innsmouth has finally opened the event for those fans, spooks and things on the fringes brave enough to walk the foggy cobblestone streets that Lovecraft himself would have admired.  From August 17-27, the village will buzz with birthday celebrations, concerts and performances.  And you can take pieces of it with you – a plethora of stores and gacha machines just ooze with darkness and gloom – the hallmarks of Lovecraft’s hauntingly macabre stories.  Oh, and tentacles…more than you can count!

In today’s post, I walk the thin line between a world-renown respected scientist and a psychotic creep who just happens to enjoy spending time with “specimens”, wearing the professionally creepy Mad Scientist Lab Coat and Gloves from Zan’sThe coat and gloves package comes with separate alphas and a texture-driven HUD that offers four different looks.  This brilliantly-creepy outfit will make you the envy of the Mad Scientists across the globe.  You can get it now at Lovefest, and you can get many other wonderfully spooked items on Zan’s Marketplace Page.

To really celebrate all that disturbs, I couldn’t resist the Snip Zip tongue from [PR] Products.  This accessory tongue, which hangs zippered and mutilated from my startled mouth, just fit the scene perfectly.  Check out the detail below – this is just one of many of the startling gacha tongues available at the in-world store, other items are available on the  [PR] Products Marketplace Page.  See the links below.

Blog 8-10-17final
It’s been one of those weeks – busy in SL, busy in RL.  Being busy is supposed to keep us out of trouble, but as you can see, it didn’t quite work out that way for me.  The combination of an old friend, a new tattoo, a new BDSM bench and a newly-discovered rezzable sim…it all adds up to a deliciously troublesome photo session.  Under the shadow of an abandoned church, absolution was only a few footsteps away…

In today’s post, I’m wearing the jaw-dropping My Master tattoo from (( Cheeky Ink )), which covers my entire upper body and both arms and comes with Belleza and Omega appliers.  This super-detailed tattoo will get you tons of compliments – you can get it now at Cheeky Ink @ XXX.

My friend Souz – the object of my unholy gaze – is chained to a bench from one of my new sponsors, Dictatorshop, which makes all kinds of amazing adult furniture.  The featured Contempo Bondage Bench is RLV-enabled and can be customized with a rezzable blanket and your choice of fabrics and metals.  The Contempo design goes with the other Contempo furniture available at the in-world store.  There are four versions: M/F, M/M, F/F and Omni, which contains everything.  Each bench has a bunch of fun-filled menus with so many poses, you’ll need plenty of time to really enjoy it (and your partner!).  It’s available at the Dictatorshop in-world store and at Dictatorshop @ Fetish Fair.

For the first photo above, I used the Easy pose from another sponsor, the always-fun [PR] Products.   I love the way this pose can fit so many different settings, including my previous post, Amber Waves of Grain.  The Easy pose and everything that [PR] makes is available at the online store and on [PR] Products Marketplace Page.  See the links below.

Amber Waves of Grain

Gluten free
Summer is winding down.  As the heat of August settles in, people race off to their favorite vacation spots to savor the remaining weeks before the grind starts up again.  What better way to unwind and think about the year to come than to stand shirtless in a field of gently billowing wheat?  (grins)  A tribute to the country’s rural beauty, our end-of-summer farm hand contemplates cooler weather and the blogs to come.

The focus of today’s post is my latest sponsor, Body Mod.  I’m wearing the amazingly detailed L$250 Black Roses Tattoo, which covers both arms and my entire upper body and comes with appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, Signature, Slink, TMP and system avs in shades of 50%, 75% and 100%.  (My body is Signature Gianni, and I’m wearing the Omega applier at 75%)  This is a very cool tattoo – one that you’ll want to wear a lot.  The tattoo can be purchased at Body Mod @ SaNaRae.

The next sponsor is the always-fun [PR] Products, which created the L$99 pose called Easy.   I like the intensity of this pose…it’s simple, introspective, but implies an inner complexity that’s a little hypnotic.  The Easy pose and everything that [PR] makes is available at the online store and on [PR] Products Marketplace Page.  See the links below.

No Fish Today

No fish today

SL is a world of extremes.  Some days are feasts – making new friends, re-connecting with old friends, visiting amazing new places or finding the perfect gift for someone special.  Other days are famine – missed connections, LMs that no longer work, days where no matter how hard you try, things just don’t fall into place.  Best we can do is to work the middle, to find that balance between slaking our thirst and staying humble and hungry for constant improvement.  While our winter fisherman may be disappointed to have missed his boat, he can take comfort in knowing that he looks good while brooding.

Today’s featured sponsor is Yasum Designs, which makes amazingly detailed clothes for both men and women.  This is my first blog for Yasum, and I’m glad to be wearing the really cool L$199 *TMP* Knit Jumper, which comes in two sizes and 10 great colors.  The fatpack is available for L$1,799.  Although TMP is in the title, my body is Signature Gianni, and the shirt fits really nicely.  Take a look at the nice detail below – contrasting seams and a rough-stitched rip in the texture give the shirt its working man creds.  The item can be purchased at the Yasum in-world store.

No fish today - close

I’m also wearing jeans from my very first sponsor, Emberotic’s Fashion Designs.  The L$150 Mason Jeans (Union Jack) include fitmesh versions for Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature, SLink, TMP and 5 sizes (plus alphas) for standard bodies.  It also includes an easy-to-use texture changing HUD with 14 different fabric textures (clean and ripped) and 6 different belt textures.  You can see that the details are terrific in the pic above, and with so many color and texture choices, you’ll never run out of options.  The jeans are available at the online store and on Emberotic’s Fashion Designs Marketplace Page.

My weary fisherman wears eyes from another of my awesome sponsors, HUWE Occult Luxury.  I’m wearing HUWE’s L$199 Amon Mesh Eyes (green), which are very bright and can add the perfect splash of color to any occasion or photo.  The set includes six pairs of mesh eyes, each in a different vibrant color.  The eyes and all the other great HUWE items can be purchased at the in-world store or on HUWE’s Marketplace Page.  See the links for everything below.

Enough is Enough

SL can be maddening…when it forces a crash in the middle of something very *ahem* important, when you get unexpected warnings about sim restarts, when things just don’t rezz quite right…these are the moments when you must take matters into your own hands.  As I dive into an epic battle with the SL gods, today’s post highlights two of my newest sponsors.

The first sponsor is (( Cheeky Ink )) Tattoo Studio.  I’m wearing the amazingly detailed L$280 Dragon God Tattoo, which covers both arms and my entire upper body and comes with Omega and Belleza Jake appliers.  (My body is Signature Gianni, and the Omega applier works perfectly)  Before, during and after taking the photo, I got tons of compliments on the tattoo, so this beauty should be a staple in your inventory.  The tattoo can be purchased at the in-world store or on the (( Cheeky Ink )) Marketplace Page.

The next sponsor is the amazing [PR] Products, which has teamed up with another of my awesome sponsors, Fallen Arms ~ Rough.  Both make incredible fantasy items, but today’s post features [PR]’s L$99 pose called Gloom.   Although the name implies a brooding darkness, it’s one of those cool poses that can go with just about any setting.  I’m having lots of fun with the [PR] poses, so you’ll see more featured in future photos.  The Gloom pose and everything else is available at the online store and on [PR] Products Marketplace Page.  See the links below.

Summer in the City

Blog - Angry2Hot town, summer in the city
Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty
Been down, isn’t it a pity
Doesn’t seem to be a shadow in the city
All around, people looking half dead
Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head

It’s hot outside.  I mean cook-an-egg-on-the-sidewalk hot…it’s been a crazy hot summer.  And true to the Lovin’ Spoonful song, when things get this hot, tempers flare, things just happen.  To stay cool on this hot summer night, our angry biker has gotta look cool.  (Thanks again to the lovely Phenella Resident (www.phenart.com) – your great company your beautiful pixels always make my pictures better!)

Today’s post highlights my latest sponsor –  HUWE Occult Luxury.  I’m wearing HUWE’s awesome L$99 Addanc Tattoo, which covers both arms and comes with Omega and Maitreya appliers.  (OK – it’s advertised as a female tattoo, but I think it looks great on my manly biceps!)  I’m also wearing HUWE’s L$199 Amon Mesh Eyes, which are very detailed and easy to work with.  The set includes six pairs of mesh eyes, each in a different vibrant color.  The tattoo, eyes and all the other great HUWE items can be purchased at the in-world store or on HUWE’s Marketplace Page.

My hot-tempered biker is clad in some great clothes from my first sponsor, Emberotic’s Fashion Designs.  The L$150 Stewart Casual Jeans include fitmesh versions for Adam, Aesthetic, Signature, SLink, TMP and 5 sizes (plus alphas) for standard bodies.  It also includes an easy-to-use texture changing HUD with 5 different fabric textures.  The L$150 Weekend Tank Top includes tucked and untucked fitmesh versions for Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature, SLink, TMP and 5 sizes (plus alphas) for standard bodies.  The HUD offers 10 different fabric textures, including stripes, flags and other fun images.  The details are terrific, and with so many color and texture choices, you’ll never run out of options.  Everything’s available at the online store and on Emberotic’s Fashion Designs Marketplace Page.  See the links below.

Urban Renewal

Tagging

The line between vandalism and spray can art can get fuzzy, depending on where you stand.  But everyone can agree that our intrepid street vandal/artist looks good while pursuing his urban craft.

Today’s outfit is a mix from several vendors, but it’s centered around the funky jeans from Emberotic’s Fashion Designs.  The Sup Jeans include fitmesh versions for Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature, SLink, TMP and 5 sizes (plus alphas) for standard bodies.  It also includes a texture changing HUD to swap between blue and black versions of clean and ripped textures.  As with all of the Emberotic’s Fashion Designs clothes, the details are terrific:  a single leg is cuffed, and all versions have an attached loop with keys.
