Hot and Sweaty

This outfit has soo many possibilities for me. Well - I know, it was made for a man - but I have this thing about blacksmiths:)

Back in the day, women rarely practiced this trade. Well, maybe if their husband was a blacksmith and...he was ill, or needed free help (and there was no apprentice) or he died:) .

Of course blacksmiths even in modern times don't wear gloves. You see, a blacksmith needs to be able to judge the heat of the metal not only by the color of the metal, but also by touch. On the other hand, since I do love gloves, I decided - what the hell, I'm wearing them!

The hair was absolutely perfect for a period female blacksmith. I like the messy look of this one. The little tendrils add to the whole picture of hard work and sweat.

The nice western boots complete the look. Be sure you go into appearance mode and shorten your pants....also, make the pants as slim as you can get.

On a different topic, i was finally able to update all my places links on the right. It's amazing how quickly places change in sl. Whew!

Places Places Places:

On a side note - first impressions mean alot to me when selecting places to recommend. Sim owners, please, STOP littering the landing areas with ads! I understand you want to sell something but keep the stuff in appropriate areas -- your scaring your visitors! Landing areas set the tone for the entire sim.

Enough bitching, it's time to explore. One or two of these may have been around for awhile (like Mar Vista), but there's something about it that makes it worth a second look. Besides, I wanted the lm handy so I had to ad it:)
