“I have said that Texas is a state of mind, but I think it is more than that. It is a mystique closely approximating a religion.” ~ John Steinbeck
I should have named the post “Enough Barely,” because in this post you get to see plenty of Barely Texan, a friend from the great state of Texas. I have so many friends in SL from Texas. Now I don’t always agree with their politics, their lifestyle (big is not ALWAYS better) or their weather, but to a person, the people are genuine and amazing. Barely is just one such—adventurous in his music choices, colorful in his dress, and bold in his humor—he’s hardly “barely” anything.
And Barely stepped up to do this blog because he has an extraordinary wardrobe and sense of fashion. He just makes one heckuva SL boy. Take for example, his Texas summer look here—mesh top from Metro Moonwall, board shorts from Kitt Ragu and sandals from Eow Reverie. Bing bang boom and Barely has it going on.
The big show here is the newest skin from Reishiprophet—Emerson. I was going to ask Blunt to show this skin, but Barely pointed out that with a name like Emerson, it’s meant for a thoughtful, intelligent man, and he volunteered to show it himself. (Poor Blunt.) Barely gives Emerson another whole flavor, showing off the luscious lips, the aquiline nose, the dark masculine eyebrows with Barely’s own brand of boyish personality and sexy soulfulness, especially combined with Ikon Innovia’s eyes. (Note here to all in SL, there are no genders to eyes—eyes are eyes. Barely wears the same brown eyes I often wear but makes them so much more… manly.)
