Keep the streets empty for me

Stop the presses. Christabel North of 4mc just sent me some boots.

You guys. Bel doesn’t release things often, but when she does, it’s worth it. Remember when she released the really incredible unisex mesh jacket that finally showed a glimpse of mesh’s potential? She does pretty cool stuff. Anyway, she just came out with some mesh boots. Here’s a better picture!

Now, while it’s true that there’s no such thing as too many awesome stompy boots, I can see that you might look at these and say: “But Vaki, these are just plain old stompy boots. Eh.” No! They are NOT plain old stompy boots. And here is why.

First, when you get them, you don’t get, like, a million sizes to fill up your inventory. You get a scripted size chooser, and while wearing that, you try on all the sizes and configurations of the Duty Boots there are. You pick the one that fits you, then click “Get this size,” and the script delivers that size to you. Less inventory clutter! If anything goes wrong, or if you change your shape later, just get a new size! Easy. Pretty sure they’re unisex, too: they’re in a very wide range of sizes. Next, check out this:


Yeah. That’s the customization HUD. Black and red stompy boots? Sure. Desert camo stompy boots? Peachy. Pink and blue plaid stompy boots with floral trim? You betcha. Make it happen.

Also, I am being totally remiss by not talking up the seriously amazing job Kallisti Burns is doing transitioning to mesh hair. I don’t love most mesh hair — it looks really heavy and thick and clumpy. Kalli is doing it so right by using mesh for her braids, letting the challenges of mesh become assets for her. Smart. This style is available at the Wear Grey event for another week and a half.

About Vaki

Seriously, Mega Shark v. Giant Octopus is a masterpiece of modern cinema. What? It has Deborah Gibson in it. And there's this one scene where...what? Oh, like there's something better than a mega shark leaping out of the ocean and biting a plane in half. Whatever.
