Cowboy boots, cowboy boys….

Someone once asked my process for doing a blog and I explained that I start with an inspiration. This time I found inspiration in the boots from Morphine Janick. With a terrific little hud that allows you to change four different parts of the boots to four different textures, these mesh boots are fun and funky.

Then I built the outfit from there. My friend, Barely, ran around with me early the other morning (after we both woke up inexplicably at the crack of dawn), to find a look that would go with this. I finally found this funky dress from Dolce Blackflag on the MP, and dressed it up with socks from Datrip Blackbart, who can always be counted on to bring something offbeat to the look.

Then I started working my way up with a great skin from Tricky Boucher and deep dark brown eyes (my FAVORITE brown eyes in SL) from Ikon Innovia. A new ‘do from Carina Larsen in a beautiful bright copper balances out the coloring of the whole look.

Topped with Jamie Holmer’s beautiful sculpty hat with its worn leather textures and an ornate necklace from Danielle Astonia, it’s no wonder I have no problem finding boys with my boots.

Cowboy

I found this guy lurking in my subconscious. He’s a little country and a little bit rock n roll. I also think he’s the kind of guy who throws things on in that sort of seeming nonchalant manner (which is really very studied).

Let’s start with the sexy shirt from MarilynMonroe Munro. Marilyn’s business is putting out separates for casual wear—shirts, accessories, headphones, and outfits for women and men. This shirt is sexy—well textured with wrinkles in all the right places and a great versatile color.

The shorts are from Paco Pooley, inexpensive and very well done with a great camouflage texture and cargo bags and ties on the side. A lot of guys complain that there is a lack of manly clothes in SL—these shorts should keep you guys quiet for a day or two. They are just right with a nice uh.. shadowed feature in front.

One important part of completing the look is accessorizing. I think I work harder on accessorizing my male looks than my female looks. I found this brilliant hat on XStreetSL and ended up running over to Jon Ree’s for some great bracelets (do you guys call them that or are they like “European Wrist Decorations”). The wheat I fished out of my inventory.

The handsome face is courtesy of KaoZ Koba. I have noticed more and more men walking around with this devastating look. I am not sure how Pompeja can stand it, looking at this on KaoZ and not jumping through the monitor.

The final accessory are the boots from swaffette Firefly. These are boots for the cowboy who likes his crocodiles on his feet and his buckles around his ankles (and do not ask me about the multiple strange meanings that sentence might spawn). swaffette makes these for both men and women but they seemed more appropriate for my cowboy here.
