It starts with a worn and dark fluttery bird texture on my silentsparrow suit. This color of the Corbie Suit was a limited edition but there are several other colors available. I layered in Mr. Poet's shirt because I adore the ruffled collar and pinned the cabochon brooch on my lapel.

I'm not really much for long tails so I exhaled and buttoned on my corset.

Yes these Lassitude and Ennui boots again. They are modifiable, so I was playing around with tint. I love them in two-tone, don't you?

.. And I really wanted to show you the elaborate braiding on this delicious coif. BooN has a growing collection of hair that is intended for wear over a hairbase. I also wanted to mention that they have three sets of hairbases which I love because the hair is pulled back three ways to the crown of the head, the back, and down to the nape of the neck. I wore two hairbases together to get a look that I like.

But always dreaming of more.

Maybe if I paint it well enough, someone else will catch my dreams.

I wish there was a chair tall enough to lift me into heaven. I don't have wings.

I liked the Kanji Shirt when I saw it in the window, but in the interest of fair disclosure there is a little bit of seam showing at the waist, so I grabbed my Sey hoodie and tied it around my waist to hide that little bitta schmutz. Off I went to the Museum. I haven't been there for a while and there are several new displays. Loved it!

I bought this cute little jacket and shorts a while ago from L'Abel and finally found it. (Pfft I should be more prompt.) What I find intriguing about it is the combination of old fashioned with futuristic touches as there are flaring cuffs on the jacket and shorts, and angular shoulder pads. There is also a dramatic upstanding collar but I opted to wear the demure shirt collar instead. I think the Hat and Whip make it look more like a riding outfit.

Perhaps she is a time traveler who forgot to remove her glasses? This careless oversight may disrupt the space-time continuum.

(Mmm ... boots. Thank you for the delicious craftsmanship Ms. Ennui.)

MENstuff 4 of 4: Details

I don't usually go for this many piercings but this set was really well made. It's not looking perfect in this photo, but that's because Inotto's shape is freaky and assymetrical. I love the piercings in the bridge of the nose but I think I'll unlink and ditch the nosering ... and oO these eyes are a keeper! Yum.

I have to tell you, what wins me the most to a piece is craftsmanship. If I fall in love with beautiful details, I'm willing to step outside of my usual style to try something different. This vest for example? Its a little more "Southwestern" than my usual, or could be used in a "boho" look which isn't my usual either. But when I tried it on I took a closer look at the notions on this vest and my mouth hung open for a second.

The buttons on the front ...

... and the cinch on the back of the waist. The texture of the vest fabric is realistically puckered as you would expect if it was cinched. Job well done.

Skin: &Bean “Dear John Can of whoop-a**”
Eyes: MADesigns “Eyes_Nature – Nature Run” wow.

Piercings: Razorblade Jacket “Sweet Spiked Face” and “Spiked Ear Piercings”

Vest: Connors “Denim Vest Red” (with sculpted buttons and a buckled cinch in the back)
Shirt: SF Design “Virginian Dress Shirt” (part of outfit, not wearing collar)
Pants: Evoke “Wrecked Jeans”


MENstuff 3 of 4: Quirky Everyday

What's quirky about a sports jersey, you ask? The team I guess ... a guy who wears an obscure team isn't just on the bandwagon. I really wouldn't have wanted a Lakers shirt.

And why a picture of walking a dog? I have no idea.

Hockey Jersey: Violation Inc. “Ovechkin”
Pants: Evoke “Wrecked Jeans”

Shirt: arnadi “Tshirt Let the Dog Out”
Pants: Love-In-Idleness “Rocker Jeans”

Skin: &Bean “Dear John Can of whoop-a**”
Eyes: MADesigns “Eyes_Nature – Nature Run”

MENstuff 2 of 4: Just for Laughs

It's a pretty sure thing that if something gives me a hard bellylaugh, I tuck it away in my inventory somewhere. I thought this chainmail would fall into the Roleplay category, until I saw the booty shorts. ;P Still, I had fun dressing the outfit up with shiney Helmet and Sword.

Chainmail: Prodigal “Rame Mesh Shirt w/ Chest Sling Gold”
Shorts: Prodigal “Leather Shorts w/Zipper”
Beard: Valiant & Sacred “2.0 Beard V1 – Tintable” (tattoo layer, more colors included)
Harbinger and Stormie “Rarius Fate” Sword (not a hunt gift)
Mysts of Time “Copper Hoplite Commander – Spartan Helm” (not a hunt gift)


p.s. I have to put Vitamen's pearl thong into the "Just For Laughs" category, but there was not a chance I was taking a picture of that. ... with my luck, I'd get pubes tangled in between the pearls. Ouch.

MENstuff 1 of 4: Roleplay

While selecting what to keep from this men's hunt, it suddenly occurred to me that the things that I keep usually fall into one of four categories, which seem to be perfect to talk about in four instalments of bloggity bloggage ... so part one is Roleplay gear.

So check out this military kit. The TShirt shows an old miltary-political propaganda piece, and you can't go wrong with camo and another set of kicks.

I love these, even though they don't meet all the benchmarks I set for my fashion boots. The boot construction is a bit old-school; each is made of two pieces that attach to the foot and the lower leg, istead of one piece with an alpha mask to hide the foot like the newer ones are made. These boots arent made of a zillion prims, with separate parts for each eyelet and section of shoelace. These boots have the shoelaces painted on. They don't change on touch to 15 colors. But if you like to Roleplay in a DCS or CCS sim with dozens of scripted weapons and combat meters, you might want to keep your boots simple. And if you look up close, the textures are beautiful.

Unless you're really new to Second Life, you know that there are roleplay communities for every genre of literature and movies. This one seems more or less old-west but if you lose the hat, remove the arm-bands, and swap out the collar for a frilly cravat, you could repurpose the rest of the outfit easily.

Here's another pair of shoes that is old-school in construction, but you never know when you will need gold-stitched paisley brocade. Right?

Shirt: b[ELLE]issima! “Propaganda Muscle Tee”
Pants: b[ELLE]issima! “Jeans – Cargo Pocket – Camo”
Boots: Deco “Test Boots – Newsprint”

Suit: SF Design “The Virginian”
Shoes: Fear & Clothing “Frankie Shoes – Paisley Gold”

Skin: &Bean “Dear John Can of whoop-a**”
