Leather smells like dark chocolate tobacco in my head. It’s something that changes texture and timbre as it ages and I have to say that it’s something I can’t get enough of if it’s done stylishly. These jackets from Lucien Marcelo that I saw mentioned by Chucky Hollak on Plurk are pretty much what I adore in RL. The folds in the arms are lovely, particularly. I will show more of it soon.
I remember watching young guys at cafes in Bologna when I was a teenager on holiday with my girlfriend of the time. They looked endlessly chic, sipping tiny coffees or as the day wore on switching to Campari. I always aspired to this, but frankly every time I found myself in Italy I was aware that I stood out as the least well-dressed person on the street.

Okaaai. I don’t really have a lot to say on this one. I just felt like dressing up my mini Elisa, and was hanging out wif my bf, who has a kid avi as well. Sooo I thought we looked cute, and suggested that we’d do a post. So we did, and here it is. Planning on doing another post like this, wit him, for The Arcade. The Arcade is in only a few weeks! Eep! I can’t waaaait. That post will be even cuter than this one, I promise you :3

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 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.
Damien Fate contacted me to ask my advice on a new slogan for FATEwear*.
As you all probably know I am considered the most prominent copywriter in the SL marketing world**, and my rates are so exorbitant for creative work that I live on one of those megayachts on my own 3-Sim plot where I use Maitreya shoeboxes as a couture staircase***
Anyway, I came up with all sorts of fantastic ideas but sadly there were “issues” with them raised by Damo’s copyright legal advisors****. Honestly, they really have no appreciation for original thought.
In the end, I just advised him to watch YouTube constantly, find something new and growing and rip off the idea. My invoice is now in the post.
I am wearing one of the new FATEwear releases called ”Seth” and still loving the new Exile hair release. Amazingly, the awesome Gogolita took my pics too! LINK and LINK…..much more on THAT story later

* He didn’t really
** Also probably not completely true
*** You should have got the idea by now.
I had been working on a pastiche of the final speech by Prospero about his “Farewell to Magicke”. The main problem with this approach is that The Tempest was written by one of the greatest writers in history (along with Goethe, Basho and the guy who came up with the “Tell them about the Honey, Mummy” ad campaign for Sugar Puffs).
I was going to make it clear that I was as Caliban (not Ariel, I haven’t shaved for a week) – a mere factotum to the great magi/designers who created a world of Magicke to benefit this one.
Aside from my inability to write this at all well, the idea of breaking my staff and burying my book wasn’t appealing. So I haven’t. But the pics do try to show the progression of being a big scary purple thing…and then just turning back to normal Cad.
It’s been a blast. And these guys raised thousands of dollars for a great charity. Top pic shows the RFL charity item from BareRose, charity hair from Wasabi Pills, skin from Tableau Vivant, and a staff I got for cheap on SL Marketplace and me being an idiot with my graphics programme.
