It started with a cowboy event on Sunday over at Cocktails. I’m about as countrified as a metro subway.
I’m a city rat, born and bred. The smallest city I have ever lived in is San Francisco; 750k people plus another million or so who commute in every day for work. I don’t do rural. Summer vacations in the tiny town my mother grew up in with less than 1500 people in it in the midwest used to drive me crazy. I would go completely and utterly batty. I don’t even like country music with very few exceptions- Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, old school country which I grew up on. So putting me in a cowboy outfit is like asking a footballer to wear a tutu.
I started with the hat and found this fantastic black hat from Roosters. The second I put it on, I remembered a goth band I was seriously into when I was in high school and on into college- Fields of the Nephilim. I was already wearing the latest Rfyre release by Raven Pennyfeather when the hat was put on and the outfit was just done for me. I had the boots in my inventory as well as they fit the industrial look quite well. I went in search of a dusty trenchcoat but couldn’t really find anything that I liked or matched the black of Raven’s new outfit. Matching black is harder than it should be though it makes sense- blacks tend to have a red, blue, purple or green “hidden” tint to them when not done to be a perfect black.
