1: the period between early July and early September when the hot sultry weather of summer usually occurs in the northern hemisphere
2: a period of stagnation or inactivity
Did you know?
Dogs aren’t the only creatures uncomfortable in oppressive heat, so why does a dog get singled out in dog days? The dog here is actually the Dog Star, which is also called Sirius. The star has long been associated with sultry weather in the northern hemisphere because it rises simultaneously with the sun during the hottest days of summer. In the ancient Greek constellation system, this star (called Seirios in Greek) was considered the hound of the hunter Orion and was given the epithet Kyon, meaning “dog.” The Greek writer Plutarch referred to the hot days of summer as hēmerai kynades (literally, “dog days”), and a Latin translation of this expression as dies caniculares is the source of our English phrase.
75° F in Northern Norway feels like this. It’s been like this for three whole days! It’s nice though, I’m going to enjoy it while it lasts because the average summer temperature where I live is 53° F. Today I’m featuring the Raphael Shorts which is a new mainstore release by FKD Fashion for Men. It’s compatible with the Michael Tank and the Gabriel Button Shirt and you can colour match them as well. FKD items are fitted for Jake, Gianni and Slink bodies.

The closest I ever got to skateboarding was playing video games. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, anyone? I sucked. I’ve played a lot of video games, for someone who sucks at gaming! Anyway, while taking the photos for these poses we could at least pretend for a moment, that we were good skaters. The poses look amazing, don’t you think? The pose pack contains one couple pose and two male and two female single poses. Skateboards for each pose are included. You can find the ‘Let’s Go!” poses at the Crystal Poses Mainstore!
For the photos I also needed skatepark appropriate attire and I have to say FKD came through on that one! You can get both the shirt and the shorts at the FKD Mainstore!
