Just back from a week of retreat (well, refresher rehab) and coming to the conclusion that what really helps me find peace and solace is spending time with people far more scrodded up than I am. Who needs analysis when you share a room with people who (redacted for SFW status) in LA clubs. May fill this in on Plurk if needed.
Anyway, returning now to doing what I really like – dressing up in funny clothes and trying to explain why.
Oh yeah, this is because Truth are doing a competition for models and I needed to enter. Also because I wanted to have an excuse to wear this cape from Tableau Vivant with trainers and jogging pants, from a new- to-me brand called Xiaj. I particularly like the design on these chucks, that I have not really shown very well but will probably do better another time. Oh there are some better pics here

Ever since a certain fashion designer which I had previously rather liked and blogged outed himself as rather unsavoury, I have decided not to blog his products. I used to enjoy his shoes.
So I wanted to highlight some of my favourite shoe designers for guys. I know I should have done them on individual small stands, perhaps being held up to the light with a curious face fading into the background….many many thoughts occurred. In real life we once did a shoot of various dogs wearing expensive designer shoes, with the tagline “She may be a b*tch, but she wears great shoes”. The campaign didn’t make it, for some reason.
Instead, today, I bring you “Dr Lorakeet’s Gypsy Caravan of Footwear”. Yeah, I know it’s not a great title and that you can’t REALLY see the shoes that well, but hey, that’s how I roll (literally)
Obviously the new Mr Poet release is amazing – and they are really well priced. For formalwear I like these from Monso (also in studded version) and Deadwool. Also older non-mesh ones from Redgrave. For less formal times, I am showing UBU, Purf, 2Real, Soreal and I still like these annoyingly still invisprimmed ones from Ordinary Design» View author and full post….
While sitting in my Zen garden, which basically just includes 4 cacti that I was hoping to grow into rude shapes, I realised that there was something missing.
The obvious answer: this Retro Vinyl set from Standby Inc available at this month’s Men’s Department. I think that playing The Ramones at max volume was hugely therapeutic…and when I got bored I could play on the handheld gaming unit conveniently dangling from around my neck. After completing the next level, I could sit back, luxuriating in the feel of a full mutton chop style Colonel Angus beard…..all of which are available at this month’s cycle of The Men’s Department
The beard is worth a highlight, part of a set of different options, all moddable, that come with nice shadow tat layers for added realism.

I did say I would blog the Deadwool jacket again….so I have. Hopefully you can see it in all it’s glory.
The only reason you may not is if your eyes are drawn to the shoes…which are a new release from Mr Poet. (Fanfare!) Because of the deep importance of this, I had to do the shoot at a landmark worthy of the content, hence Stonehenge (and no I didn’t just accidentally land here)
The shoes come with a HUD that allows you to easily change every single element of the shoe in terms of colour and the resize was super simple too. Just…go and support this designer because I want more and don’t want to have to wait another 9 months for the next release, okay? Okay.
PS – The shoes are UNISEX.
SHOOOOES! Derby Shoes by Mr Poet
And just to mark this further, an unnecessarily tinted pop art style montage of these lovely things.
Expect to see me show this jacket again, in a more useful way. It’s a new release from Deadwool (a brand about which I may have opined positively in the past and is currently my default outfit maker). They do vintage Western mesh clothing, and they do it really well. This is the Hill Jacket which comes in 6 colours. I sort of want them to be the new Kal Rau…as in that everyone buys their stuff? But then again it’s nice to look a bit different…but then again I’m a blogger so that doesn’t help much does it?
Also included are some items from the new The Men’s Department round that started 5 May, even with some furniture included which I am usually bad at. The throne from EPIA includes single & couple poses.
I was feeling odd last week and took some pictures which ended up mutating somewhat before I finished them. I have done some Haiku blogs before (here for example), simply because I love the medium and I felt like writing some to attempt to explain the pictures.

Aren’t you glad you stopped by for that? Oh and the meme itself was something about introducing yourself in a Haiku, so here goes:
I still like my regular shape – it makes me feel odd to slip on something that someone else made that changes my whole face.
I put together this outfit to highlight this really nice bit of work from A.S.S. I can’t say that I would wear this in RL mainly as I eat like a bit of a kid and it would just get full of rice.

I know it’s not a big deal, but the fact that I can see shadows for the first time makes me happy. Yay for the new Firestorm viewer!
I’m wearing another of the new releases from FATEwear, as well as the latest hair from Chiaki Xue at Dura. I’m a massive fan of this one, and it’s Unisex. I picked up my shoes from DECO during their shoe sale for only 50L.
It was a day like any other. I was crouched in the bushes 100 feet away, dressed like a shrub with my binoculars pressed hard to my eyesockets when a shape hove into view. It was a shape I recognised, from previous excursions that usually took place at night with my trusty UV goggles and thermos of tomato soup.
“Did you have to crawl under my fence and through the swamp to get in here?” she said, but I knew she didn’t mean it really. “Can we start the interview now?” her feet tapping impatiently. I complied, feeling slightly scared.
Cad Firstly, I know how glad you are going to be that you are being featured on my blog, as you need the traffic. I’m quite magnanimous about that, so let’s just say “you’re welcome”
Juicy Yeah, I would like to acknowledge for the record that I’m humbled by your largesse, and that if you hadn’t actually been camped just outside the limits of my sim and camming in to try to take pictures of me for the last few months I would consider shaking your hand.

A quicky post for the morning to remind you that the MOH3 hunt is on from 1st May until 31st May.
A whole lot of great free stuff shown here (credits below) and certainly a lot of the shops are new to me and will be checked out…..
