Trials of Eyeliner

Comes across all shy and coy, just another nancy boy

My love again relationship with Aitui hit a new peak last night when I spied this new jacket.  Their color selection is currently limited to black, grey and “officer” which is what I’m wearing- sort of a purply-browny-tanny-uh-somewhere-in-the-middley color with grey accents that match the shirt underneath. What I love about the shirt is the sort of scoop-out neck instead of laying flat against the chest. The shading is outstanding.

As usual with Aitui, big men need not apply. They only offer sizes XS, S and M. The M is a tight fit on me and if I wanted to be honest about it, my ass would have to lose a teensy bit on the slider in the back. And while I’m honest, I like my ass.. so a little cut here and there as I move will have to do. Because I do love this jacket.

The leathers were a surprise purchase. Immerschoen has been on my radar for awhile but I never manage to get over there when I actually remember. I’m rather bad that way.  They’re scrunchy and wrinkly the way I like but high and tight- not a saggy, invisible pony ride to be found. The highlighting and shading is nice too. I think their best feature though is that the leather isn’t perfect. There are marks and lines the way good leather wears in. Its attention to little details like that which make me a happy leather queen.

As an aside, has anyone noticed when you take really high rez snapshots with a night sky in the background, and zoom in close in photoshop to work on some detail or another, the stars are shaped exactly like Pac*Man?

I was so tempted to paint in a little ghost in the corner.

Toodles,

    I wonder who they cater for given I rarely see any small men in SL. Most are built like a brick out house as the Australian’s would say. You were lucky to get into a medium though your torso may be less hulk like than many 🙂

    Kind of reminds me of Val Doonigan-the jacket that is.

    1. I’m not all that bulky on the sliders, no, but I am tall. I’ve TRIED going normal height (as in, say, 6’2″ or so) but on my screen, it makes me look short. So screw it. Here’s to Freakishly Tall. 🙂

    <–kinda likes the way your back side looks also.

    1. Well gosh darnit, Petr, would you look at that? I dropped something behind the couch. I’ll just lean over and get it.

    Hey Nigel, does this rag smell like chloroform to you?

    1. “Hmm? Oh, I don’t know, I—” Thud.

      As you take off the jacket to make off with it, neatly pinned on the inside is a simple note, “Put the jacket back, Nathaniel.”

      1. …he knows me too well.

Tell Nigel What You REALLY think!
