It's true, I did.…but not by this generation's finest actor, Ashton Kutcher…*coughs*…I got punk’d while I was wandering around looking for photo ops and stumbled upon a little store called Theoioi’s - I'm about to get informative so brace yourself (“the oi oi’s”??…Oi! being a working class street-level subgenre of punk rock that originated in the United Kingdom in the late 1970s.) Theoioi’s is full of leather and denim jackets, customized with spikes, studs, and paint, tartan pants and patched and bleach splattered jeans….in other words, every mother's dream for her little boy. Oh, and did I mention cheap like dirt??
After spending the night with Bo in her peacock dress, I was suffering from extreme peacock envy and I saw the clothes here as a way to get my rainbow on and thumb my nose at authority while I was at it (whomever that might be). Starting at the top, I bedecked my crown with the purtiest Mohawk from Black Maria, the Tia in red.…no rooster ever looked so hawt!! Trying the Oxymoron jacket on, I found it a little sparse, thank goodness for my accessory folder - I grabbed some prims off my Brutal Gear Jacket, and let Monogrind do the rest of the work, with their super detailed belts and bracers.
Being a complete bish for tartan and plaid, the Double Tartan pants were an easy pick…the seams were decent enough, and they have more zippers than MJ’s retro red vinyl jacket - that’s a good thing in this case!! Things can get rough in the mosh pit, so I went back to Monogrind for my buckled kneepads, and threw on a leg strap from Sinistyle for good measure. Breaking with Oi tradition, I shelved the doc martens and dug out my Rustic Demise Boots from Spider Productions. These were the second pair of boots I ever bought and at the time, I thought they were really well made - proof in the pudding, 700 pairs of boots later and the textures and details on these boots still made me growl like rawk star when I put them on.
Anyways, I’m off to prowl the Wastelands some more….damned if I didn’t lose a contact somewhere in the burning tire heap!!
