Usually when I think of coveralls, I think of a nametag with the name “Hank” or “Chester” and a decent collection of oil/grease spots…or maybe your stereotypical machete swinging, horror film mass murderer, avoiding the telltale blood and viscera stains on his good clothes - but coveralls as a fashion statement?? Yes, it's true, coverall couture is here and not since those flickr pics of Winter on his hands and knees wearing a dog collar have I been so excited about something!!
First step to getting on this new fashion wave is heading your arse down to 19 Sosaku-Kobo where you’ll find good and bad news. The good news here is the coveralls are easy to find, the shop has very few items at the moment - the bad news is that you’ll wish they had more after you try a few things on (sort of like me and those pictures of Winter). The coveralls come in several great colors separately or in a fat pack…cautiously, I bought the black ones and ended up with the fat pack not long after…cus you know, I hardly have anything to wear in SL. They come in both mens and ladies sizes, with plain or logo back uppers. They're baggy without looking sloppy, and I really love the rolled down to the waist sculpty option…kind of a mix between hipster and hip hop. They also feature prim sleeves, bottoms, collar and great texturing…they’re the last thing you’ll want to wear when it's time to change the oil …or when you’re collared and walking about on your hands and knees like Snoopy.
After impressing me with the detail on the coveralls, 19’s PaintO Jie blew me away with the sculpties on his O-Swiss Kicks…these shoes are a builders showcase, this is how sculpties are supposed to work!! Crazy details, from the pebbled rubber of the upper sole to the wrinkled creases where the shoe bends at your toes, they actually made me take off my pornstars for a few days in a row ( I think Dove burned them). With my top rolled down, I decided it was time to show off my Mu Mei Do tattoo from Muism…not for the faint of wallet, this tattoo translates to approximately 58 hours of straight camping (definitely a recipe for slemorrhoids) - after you get over the price though, you can revel in the awesome detail and almost negligible seams.
Having broken the bank on the rest of my outfit, I was happy to find a freebie hat that you can not only wear with your hair but it looks good too!! Yabusaka as usual has another fine piece of jewelry, the Silver Alphabet Changer Pendant. Mine says “Poo” fittingly, first off because it's one of Dove's favorite words and secondly, with five million birds flying around in the background, it’s an inevitability of this photo shoot. So now little hipsters and hipstettes, it's time for you to join the coverall revolution…in the meantime, I'm going to go search some Gorean sims and see if I can't find a nice present for a former Dark Lord of the Vampires I once knew.
