Tenue du Jour / Outfit of the Day: “Accessory Arsenal,” “KR,” “Philotic Energy,” “SF Designs,” “Young Urban”

Perry Proudhon | - Tenue/Outfit, Casual, Special Event | Monday, February 4th, 2008

Decided on putting together a hiking outfit after getting these new hiking boots by swaffette Firefly. The boots come in three sizes, much appreciated by those of us with smaller avatars. I spent my first months on SL looking like a clown, finally settling for primless shoes, so smaller sizes are welcome. With the boots, you can get six colors of ankle socks with sculpty cuffs, for free.

The next most important piece to ensure that a hike is safe and successful is a decent backpack, filled with essentials just in case one gets lost in the wilderness. I’d seen this pack a while ago at Accessory Arsenal and after reaching into the recesses of my memory, remembered the sim it was located in (but couldn’t remember the name of the shop!), tp’d with my fingers crossed and found the place still there. It’s a wonderful backpack, beautifully textured, very realistic looking but still whimsical. (I love the Hershey bar tucked into the side.) It was a little hard to adjust so the straps looked right, but not too bad. Comes with a flashlight and a walking stick (not pictured).

The green plaid shirt from Young Urban is a nice sportshirt, comfortable and broken in. Very reasonably priced at 80L, it’s worth tossing in your inventory for a casual option. It comes in short sleeves (untucked on the jacket layer), with prim cuffs (not shown), or long-sleeve, tucked on the shirt layer (but pretty short if you’re wearing low-rise pants) and untucked on the jacket layer.

The white capri pants from KR (also available in black) come with prim side pockets (I didn’t attach them) and prim cuffs (shown). I like the cords on the cuffs a lot, and the pants look natural, with good detail and shading. A bit on the expensive side at 250L.

Finished up the outfit with Aemilia Case’s “Mykal” in Auburn, messy and casual and easy to manage while outdoors; and a cool watch by Fim Fischer.
