In these times when dramas about content theft are running all over the grid, with “collateral” witch hunts and false accusations, it’s nice and comforting to see how great designers can INSPIRE each other in the best way.
All through history, artists have gathered to share and vivify their creativity. Artists of the same field, of course, but also artists from different fields.

When Raven Pennyfeather (costume designer behind Rfyre) saw Eponymous Trenchmouth (shoe cobbler from JCS), something clicked. Let’s listen to Raven:
“Eponymous made some wonderful shoes for men called Toltec. I have made a suit of clothes to match, which I am calling Casteneda as he studied the Toltec. Aren’t they marvelous?”

So, i’m showing today Raven Pennyfeather’s last creation “Castaneda,” the new creation from Eponymous trenchmouth “Toltec,” and to go along with them, a new hair from another great artist, Aemilia Case from Philotic Energy, “Saxon” that comes in her so good new 96 textures.

I have to say it was a pure pleasure to put together items designed by such master-texturers!

“Toltec” comes in two colors (clay/olive and black/red); in each pack, copy or transfer following your needs, you will get 3 sizes.
Choose the size that looks best with your build. Adjust your foot size to 0 (unless you’re going barefoot). That way, you will have always the best fitting with any shoes (except sandals!). To get the best posssible appearance, it may be necessary to adjust the length and flare of your pants.
As usual, the textures are carefully designed, the building is ultra-precise, with an attention to detail I wish I could find more often in sl.
These Toltec have relatively high heels for men. In my humble opinion, they go better with historical costumes or fantasy outfits than “RL-like” outfits.

Fortunately, Raven Pennyfeather designed her “Castaneda” to perfectly fit the “Toltec.” It comes in two colors, Earth and Noir. Each color pack offers, as usual at Rfyre, many items and attachments, allowing more than one look (a mere 11 items in each pack!). Attachments and pants are modify, jackets and shirts aren’t. If you have issues with the length of the sleeve showing under the sculpty cuff attachment (these are perfectly designed and textured) like i did, Raven will provide you modify versions of them. “Castaneda” offers all the creativity you are used to getting at Rfyre!
