Sometimes I borrow things. I slipped out of the store with this jacket awhile ago but this is the first time I have worn it. I forgot it was in my closet. I snaked the hat and jeans from my husband's side of the closet. These jeans? Oh don't be paranoid. I'm sure that's just paint.

(Now please please click on this pic and take a good look at this belt. The belt, belt loops and buckle all texture change with a handy little HUD. I really could have made a post just showing you all sorts of options with this gem.)

The boots? Just borrowed his credit card. (just kidding!)

I went to the Alternative Fair expecting a romp through latex, tattoos and schtomper boots. But ... Frankly, I went to the Alternative Fair expecting less than Art. In my heart of snobby hearts, I don't call it Art unless it makes me think.

Take a long look at these glasses. ... (and imagine that my right lens is animated with the static of an off-the-air television screen) ...

Our ability to perceive distance, and understand three dimensional spatial perspective, relies mostly on binocular vision. Art can imitate depth of field using linear perspective, focus, by putting a grey haze in the distance of a landscape, but with only one point of view, our vision becomes flat. With one eye covered, does it matter how many windows or lenses I place in front of the other eye? Should I filter half of my vision through the static of a video screen or media opinions? Or should I give myself permission to see what I see?

Some people don't want to know what I see. I could make them happy by removing my head. I wouldn't see or think a thing. I couldn't speak. Would that work for you? ...

Me neither.

Do monsters go to the movies? Do they have predictable favorites, or should I have put the Team Jacob shirt on the vampire?

(I picked up the Werewolf Hair at the Fantasy Faire. I bought other things of course, but this was my "must-have" item. Go figure. It includes both male and female versions, and yes it has chest hair. You know you want it! ... One caveat: the front area of the hair has patches that you can see through from the side of the hair: not an error, but a design choice. Try a demo. If you don't like seeing scalp, you can cover it with a darker skin, or a skin with a hairbase.)

Team Jacob:
Shirt: Avoid “Black/Twilight: Jacob” (from two shirt set)
Belt: Shush “Punk Black Belt” (JFTG hunt gift)
Hair: Wasabi Pills “Werewolf Hair” and “Werewolf Chest Hair”
Eyes: Poetic Color “fairy eyes – witch dark gr”
Skin: BLU282 “Marilyn My Bitterness”

Team Edward:
Shirt: Avoid “White/Twilight: Edward” (from two shirt set)
Belt: Shush “Punk Black Belt” (JFTG hunt gift)
Hair: Shag “In Bloom” (chestnut)
Eyes: Poetic Color “liquid amber” (gift unavailable)

He was just a little apprehensive about meeting me in the cemetery, but that was easily overcome by testosterone.

He was surprisingly slow on the uptake. But most humans don't believe in things like me.

Pants: Boingo “Mens Gladiator Leggings” (Zombie Popcorn Hunt gift)
Boots: Ducknipple “Smug Black” (Zombie Popcorn Hunt gift)

Eyes: Plastik “Brains Collection Gasoline” (Zombie Popcorn Hunt gift)
Eyelashes: Glow Studio “Innocent Eyelashes Pure” (okay I need to adjust them better)
Poses: Poses for Posers (Zombie Popcorn Hunt gift)
Location: Wretched Hollow Cemetery

I don’t go on very many hunts these days, but what intrigued me about the Zombie Popcorn Hunt was the over the top grossness of its name. Try not to get a mental picture. Let’s just move on ... What impressed me about this hunt was more than the usual number of skins. I showed the Plastik skin, but there were several other nice ones, notably another very nice zombie-themed skin by Mabee, and a scarlet-lipped human skin from Glam Affair. The Plastik package also includes a male zombie skin so the Guys don't have to feel left out. The hunt has a hint page if you are having a hard time finding some of the more difficult ones.

It's dark, cold, and I have no idea where in the hell I am. Where is the unit? The war? My armament? My pack?

This sure as hell isn't my drop zone. *taps mic* No comm, instruments out of range. Fabulous.

Okay okay, options. There are always options. What are my options? ... It's already getting hot.

*pulls off sweaty helmet*

Options. Yeah.

If I weren't gonna die out here, that might be funny.

Fill my eyes o lithium sunset
And take this lonesome burden of worry from my mind
Take this heartache of obsidian darkness
And fold my darkness into your yellow light

O well. The sun will be back tomorrow.

It all started with the hat. I forgot this beauty in my closet for too long. I put it on and started looking through piles of shoes for my cowboy boots.

That got me thinking about brown suede and maybe fringes or laces, and country living ... leading to this deer vest I picked up at silentsparrow. Honestly when I bought it, I wasn't sure what I would do with it, but it's perfect when you're in the mood for leather. Walking around in the country I could get cold, so I layered in a thermal henley and undershirt and some great socks.

Well, no matter what the title of this post, I have to wait. Darn it. *grumble grumble*

DON'T CALL ME KEN [edited]

Once again it is time for me to hijack Inotto and take him on a men's themed hunt for new clothing and accessories. There are a few hunts that we know from past experience are always worth the time, and the Make Him Over Hunt is one of them. Just don't tease him if you see him, yes I dressed him up like a big ol' Ken doll and spent a while photographing him. So far he has kept his sense of humor about it.

(OK Achariya this first shot I took with you in mind. We've all been enjoying your hunky photographs.) This gift skin from AtomicBambi is pleasantly good-looking. As indicated it is a Beta skin. If you get up close you can see a few patches that are very slightly blurry where seams were apparently removed, but from a reasonable distance these are not noticeable. I especially like the lips. Yummy.

Skin: AtomicBambi “Benicio Beta”
Necklace: Kosh “Betel Nut Necklace”
Hat/Hair: MADesigns “Brady Flat Cap (suede)”

Shirt: Alphamale “Slate Shirt”
Pants: Alphamale “Formal Pants II Stripesilver”
Shoes: Kalnins “Crossyard Shoes” (texture change)
Hair: Bryce “Wayne Greedy Pack” (megapack)
Skin: AtomicBambi “Benicio Beta”

Swimwear/Underwear/Lifeguard Gear: Vitamen “Rescue Tank and Boxers” (save me baby!)
Hair: Pocket Mirrors “Lorien Ponytail”

Jacket: Connors “MHOH3 Hoodie”
Shirt: Prodigal “MHOH Gift T-shirt” (This shirt is so thin that wearing it without the hoodie will get you really really cold. You'll see what I mean.)
Pants: Immerschoen “Jeans Pants Destroy#3”
Glasses: Kumaki Glasses “K_gs Samurai_MHOH3_edition 1.00” (customizable a zillion ways)
Skin: Atomic Bambi “Benicio Beta”

Shirt: hate this “YADIW” ... EDIT!! since the opening of the hunt this hunt prize was changed to one of less quality and the YADIW shirt was made a dollarbie. Still, this shirt is definitely worth more than one Linden Dollar. Enough said. (I already bought some other shirts there; I do shop where I hunt, when quality justifies it.)

Pants: Prodigal “low rise silk pants charcoal”
Boots: Delirium “Mens Fallen Angel Boots”
Hair: Fiction “Tirade”
Skin: Nikita Fride “Make Him Over Hunt 2010”

Another very nice skin. This one is rather rocker-goth, the poor guy looks like he was in a knife fight once from the scar that bisects one eyebrow, there is a tribal style tattoo around one eye and two piercings on his lower lip.

Shirt: SAD “Sad Tee”
Pants: Fir “Pinstripe Pants Mocha”
Hat/Hair Avoid “Blake – Onyx”
Necklace: Aidoru “Ballschain Pic Necklace” (you can put your own pic on front)
Skin: AtomicBambi “Benicio Beta”

Shirt: Immerschoen “Sammy (Blue)”
Pants: Immerschoen “Jeans Pants Destroy#3”
Hat/Hair: MADesigns “Boston Flat Cap (fabric) Almond Frost”
Eyes: DNA Cloning Facility “Legacy Type 1 Eyes White” (multipack)
Skin: Illninia “Ignacio”

I wanted to say something about this skin too. Illninia is a new skinmaker, I think, located over in the hostile territory of the Wastelands. I like that they have skins with a more unusual, less pretty appearance. I tried several demo skins on my loving Guinea-Pig and was impressed. I look forward to seeing what else this skin maker produces in the future.

Pants: Jasper “Mister Bear Roll-Up Shorts”
Shirt: Jasper “Emerald High-Collar Sweatshirt”
Hair: MADesigns “Brady Flat Cap (suede)”
Skin: AtomicBambi “Benicio Beta”

This last item made me get all excited and even Inotto cracked a smile. This lovely DCCXXIII “W19” vintage pocket watch is color and texture change, a working timepiece. The leather case has a strap with snap that opens and closes to keep the watch from getting lost, I opened it so you could see the whole watch face. Wow.
