Trials of Eyeliner

Comes across all shy and coy, just another nancy boy

In my never-ending quest to find non-standard mesh for men, my search for items which tend toward my more unique style of dress is usually met with frustration and disappointment. What do I mean by non-standard? Boyshorts, skirts, most-likely-what-is-not-currently-popular.

I’m an odd duck but by no means a lone duck.  There are lots of us guys out here, mostly in the LBGTQ community, who want to wear clothes that don’t necessarily fit the stereotypical Second Life Male idea of fashion. Just as there are a lot of women who want to wear more masculine clothing, sometimes a boy just wants to put on a skirt, dammit.

Well, now you can.

While wandering through Rhapsody yesterday, and getting more and more irritated at the general lack of quality mesh items for men by comparison to the overwhelming tidal wave of items specifically for women (Yes, yes, I know why, its all about economics), I slipped into one of the shops in the Punk section. Cracked Mirror.

As is my usual when looking at items, whether intended for men or not, I checked out this little plaid skirt with a wistful sigh. “Oh, look…” I thought to myself, “…includes a fitted version. I wonder…”

And much to my blistering, bewildered surprise, the fitted version WORKS.

Operation Slutmachine: TALLY HO! I partnered the skirt with the weapons harness from Dark Prophet Designs and I instantly had an outfit which, were there a Folsom event in Second Life, I would be decked out and ready to go. Depending on how you wear it, this skirt from Cracked Mirror could easily pass itself off as a kilt for those men who aren’t as comfortable stating, “Yes! I’m wearing a skirt!” C’mon boys, convince yourself its a kilt and come join the breezy and beautiful.

Have hope, oh ye of little male-mesh-loving faith. Try demos- take a chance and look around a creators store- try something even though you’re convinced it will never work and you may be wonderfully, pleasantly surprised.

    starts to sing “A Scotsman clad in kilt left the bar one evening fair
    And one could tell by how he walked he’d drunk more than his share
    He staggered on until he could no longer keep his feet
    Then stumbled off into the grass to sleep beside the street.

    chorus:
    Ring ding diddle diddle i de o
    Ring di diddle i o
    He stumbled off into the grass to sleep beside the street.

    Later on two young and lovely girls just happened by,
    And one says to the other with a twinkle in her eye
    You see yon sleeping Scotsman who is young and handsome built
    I wonder if it’s true what they don’t wear beneath their kilt.

    Ring ding diddle diddle i de o
    Ring di diddle i o
    I wonder if it’s true what they don’t wear beneath their kilt.

    They crept up to the sleeping Scotsman quiet as could be
    Then lifted up his kilt about an inch so they could see
    And there behold for them to view beneath his Scottish skirt
    Was nothing but what God had graced him with upon his birth

    Ring ding diddle diddle i de o
    Ring di diddle i o
    There was nothing there but what God gave upon his birth

    They marveled for a moment then one said we’d best be gone
    But let’s leave a present for our friend before we move along
    They took a blue silk ribbon and they tied it in a bow
    Around the bonnie spar that the Scot’s lifted kilt did show

    Ring ding diddle diddle i de o
    Ring di diddle i o
    Around the bonnie spar that the Scot’s lifted kilt did show

    The Scotsman woke to nature’s call and stumbled toward a tree
    Behind a bush he lifts his kilt and gawks at what he sees
    Then in a startled voice he says to what’s before his eyes
    He said, ‘Lad I don’t know where you’ve been but I see you won first
    prize’

    Ring ding diddle diddle i de o
    Ring di diddle i o
    He said, ‘Lad I don’t know where you’ve been but I see you won first prize’

    I just couldnt help it nige.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wWz_7qdrPs
