Suited and Booted

Out in Clubland, having fun

Out in Clubland, having fun,
and now I’m hiding from the sun.
Waiting for a visitor,
though no-one knows I’m here for sure.

A:S:S has just brought out the most amazing pair of pants that I’ve seen in many a year in SL. Glory be, for mesh now allows us to have proper, classic punk bondage pants, with straps and even an apron at the back. Soooo many colours to choose from (yes, naturally, I’m showing you the black pair, but there’s also black alligator, dammit, and you don’t know how close I came to featuring those instead!). You’ll get versions both with and without the apron, so if you don’t want that bit, you don’t have to have it (I did, thus I do!).

I’ve chucked on a new black vest from Gabriel at the current Mens Dept collection, plus cuffs from the same store and event. Both are available in black or white, and the cuffs resize nicely (with an ‘any-direction’ resizing option, not just ‘size-up all over’, which is always a bonus).

But, uh, going back to these pants, because seriously, my sartorial darlings, they are fucking gorgeous. Look at the materials on ’em!

Straps and buckles and zips… *happy little shiver*

These boots by Flite are no longer available (everything made by Flite, with the exception of items released to the Mens Dept) is limited-edition, so you need to get in fast. Join the group, or add their Flickr to your contacts, and keep an eye out for the next release. Sure, it can be frustrating as hell when you miss out (I can attest to that) but when you manage to get in and land yourself a pair of beauties like these boots the effort is worth it.

I have, naturally, layered like fuck on the makeup front. With a look such as this, I do hope you didn’t expect anything different ;-) The base shadow is one of my old, cheapo standbys: the Raccoon 03 shadow by Luccy Sands, on Marketplace (seriously, Luccy’s eyeshadows are no-brainer purchases; they’re only L$5 each!). Over the top of that I’ve layered a white filigree detail by White Widow. The hexagonal tattoo is from By Snow, and the Leo tat (my zodiac sign) on Skell’s throat is by Aitui. Nail appliers by A:S:S.

The piercing is a double septum ring set by Just Magnetised at the current Mens Dept collection (lots more colours and metals available) – you can wear either the white or black or both rings together. And the hair is a new release from Truth (Hallelloo! New male hair from Mr Hawks!) called Tom.

  1. Now I have Marc Almond on the brain. This is not a bad thing.

    Great look and glad to see you back :)

    1. Thank you! Sometimes I just need a break, so the blog goes quiet for a few weeks. And Marc Almond on the brain is never a bad thing. I had The Art of Falling Apart on repeat the other day.
