You don't remember that old Christmas story: "Harry and the Ghost of Chicken Past"?

Well, it seemed like a good idea at the time...

What does Harry have to do with any of this?

 Cheesy

I think you are being too critical Xenos.  It's called lean...like a runner or archer of old.  And trust me, the ladies are going to be focusing on just what IS under that kilt.

My wife cackled like crazy at that last bit!  The stories I could tell, but I'm sure they'd be chalked up to braggadocio.  So I'll just walk away with a grin on my face, and a slightly lighter step, thanking you for the compliment.

And with that, I'm probably off for the night-this cold is starting to annoy me.

Thought I'd throw my two cents in. Here's me in my 'western' victorian outfit. Wore it to go out on my birthday.

I love this! Nice!

I agree, those boots are awesome!

How far is all the way, and then if it stops, what's stopping it, and what's behind what's stopping it? So, what's the end, you know, is my question to you."

Thanks to y'all for the fine comments.  D.Oakes, that looks like a great start on both outfits.  You might want to look to something more in linen or cotton though for the desert look.  I'm not quite in the desert, but 115 degrees in August makes little difference (though I still wear my heavy gus-crowned hat, never switching to straw or some such).  And I'll certainly be on the look out for that Christmas tale, it sounds like an instant classic.

(PS: I'm not a giant, we just have a fridge that is very inadequate in terms of size)

For those interested:
The scarf I purchased through Uswings:  And the boots were bought probably 4 or 5 years ago through What Price Glory.  They're much more expensive now (I think nearly 50 dollars more).  Also, when I bought them the photo showed a very dark pair of boots.

They're both wonderful, but the desert explorer especially delights me, because I haven't seen that particular twist much before! Bravo!

Epic photos one and all!!   Grin

Great Kilt ... walkthebassline ... where'd yer hair go? 

Mr. Oakes ... you really stage some fine photos there.  Quite impressive!

And all you folks across the pond have a class about you that may not be attainable in the nether regions of North America.

One of these days, I'll add a photo of the old hippy cowboy tripster.  It is becoming increasingly clear that I fall into the weird-west category (I've got a laser scope on my lever-rifle  Shocked  )

Likewise us here in the South and in the West have a look that's all our own.  I look forward to seeing what an old hippy cowboy tripster looks like.

Birdnest, its just pulled back. I work in an office during the day and have to look professional. Actually I'm just thrilled they've let me keep my hair at all!

I can't wait to see this hippy cowboy. We Southerners do indeed have our own style. Unfortunately I'm drawing a blank as to how one can make a backwoods farmer steampunk. Hmm.

When you get the idea let me know and I'll start working on a redneck steampunk (if such exists).

 If you go with the classic definition then you can base it off a steampunk coal miner.  Otherwise a steampowered banjo (or an entire one-man-steam-powered-jug-band) would be a start.

One thing I always taught my art students...have an excuse for every single thing you do:  It's night time, and it gets cold.   Grin  Quite a few deserts of the world also have record lows for their particular regions.   Wink

Working on a Western look. 


And I did a button and accent mod to one of my jackets and decided to try for a desert explorer look:

Well I am somewhat widely traveled, but there are plenty of dopplegangers of me...like the time my cousin was shocked to find out that I had a child.  Several years ago, while living the completely single life.   Grin

Thank you everyone. 

Looks like a fun time Grumfoss!

Well, that makes sense.  And the truth is myself even when it's 115 degrees y'all see me out there in my bib-front, jeans, boots, knee-high socks, gus-crown hat and perhaps a kerchief at my neck.  And somehow I'm not dying of heat either.  Also, that desert gear jacket your sporting there is a fine one.

My grandfather used to have a younger brother that was his own doppelganger.  My great Uncle was not one to stand up for himself.  He was not a coward, but a pacifist.  Well, usually about the time the bullies were to get my great Uncle my grandfather would catch word and make him be the one they found.  They (yes the group of them) usually didn't walk away without injury.
