Trials of Eyeliner

Comes across all shy and coy, just another nancy boy

I am. It’s true. Just ask anyone. I’m a complete and utter bastard. Ok, so my parents were actually married but besides that technicality..

Oh just work with me here, damnit.

A handful of years ago, this new sim popped up with some sculpty prims for sale inside a beautifully built castle. There was a moat, wandering grounds full of rolling hills and trees. There was a babbling brook and a delicate looking dock upon which this new game was put out. My friend and I pulled up a crate and fished the 7 Seas for a while being silly, listening to music, and eventually dancing and fishing- because there’s no danger in flying hooks, right?

We wandered the sim, bought some of the lovely furniture inside the exquisite castle, met with the creator, and wandered off to decorate my own home with my new toys.

Over the years, this amazing creator has brought cutting edge building designs to Second Life that have focused on every detail from enriched baked textures on everything he’s put out to now the latest in mesh design. He’s taken that little castle on the hill and pushed the envelope for what we think of when we see a “good” build.

As if building exquisite mesh homes, furniture, accessories and castles wasn’t enough, he’s launched his two clothing lines as well over the last year or so.

And thus I bring this blog post around to the title. (See, I told you just work with me…)

Maxwell Graf, of Rustica, bitch and bastard, has released these two clothing items this month and I couldn’t be more pleased. The leather kilt is available  currently at The Men’s Dept while this gorgeous, poofy poet shirt is available at this month’s We ❤ Roleplay event. The kilt is available in three different styles and the shirt is available for men and women both in several colors and chain maile.

The two go together flawlessly. The kilt sits like my RL Utilikilt sits, the shirt blends perfectly into the belt of the kilt, and one of my biggest pet peeves about mesh clothes? Max has refined the inside of bottom of the kilt so you’re not looking up at the sky.

Who says RP stuff is only for RPers? Bah!
