Yes, you read that right. And I'm sure you've spotted the error in that title, eh?
It's usually more like 3 and a bit weeks.
Truth is - I have a compulsion that I need to break down bastions, change the status quo, challenge ideals etc etc. Plus I'm a total attention hor. So recently I set my sights on that grand competition that has been running so long it's now an institution. The Dark Eden Girl of the Month. As the rules state
"Can guys enter?
YES! But there's no special class for guys. You have to compete with the girls and be sexier, more stylish more hot and tempting and juicy than all the other girls that month! Its a tough thing to ask any guy. So far only one (Alushee Essex) has made it to the finals but we're still waiting on our first official Dark Eden Guy. It could be you!"
Thing is that almost everything Dark Eden sells if for the other half of this species. That hasn't ever really stopped me before. So after a good hour of digging, I came up with this.
So it's not the most masculine of ensembles, but it's so very ME. (Shut up in the back row, whaddya say?) I have on the purple latex jacket, ths straps from the Anath set as a harness under that, the Metis belt, and the Phoebus boots, all from Dark Eden.
I'm rocking it with my new love, the Cyberfashionista hair from Digit Darkes. This was available as a freebie from SL6B, but I wanted the complete colour change option so I was more than happy to fork over the lindens. Along with my treasured Corvine skin from eXceSs, something that you'll see in these pages over and over again. With The Hunger fishnet shirt and the leather pants both from SN@TCH. A total staple of mine wardrobe. I have all the colours - including the ones that I begged Ivey to make - and they get dragged out at least 2 days of every week. Leather lust, it's a Vampire thing. Don't try too hard to understand it, just enjoy the view from behind.
I was quite surprised by how little I had to resize these Phoebus boots. Just a small tweak and they were good, it usually takes me ages and several failed pairs before I can get female boots to fit. You'd think this would stop me buying them, wouldn't you?
So I dragged my latexed/leathered/fishnetted/harnessed self off to Templum Ex Obscurum, strapped on my Kris sword and posed, with one eye uneasily on that wolf in the background. I'm not scared of them, I was just hoping it wouldn't come hump my leg. Submitted this shot after showing it on plurk, to the chuckles of many. Including Ran Garrigus, who asked "Aren't you a bit overdressed for a Dark Eden Girl? You are supposed to wear like, a strap. and if it's nippy, two straps." And then... fuck me even deader, if I wasn't chosen as a finalist. So... umm... if you want to vote for me, you can go here. And laugh at the man posed atwixt lovely ladies in latex minidresses.
