Was it something I said or something I did

hyasynth is gonna kill me for the cheek of this post. That which we adore, we tease, right? The second I saw the name of the new ~silentsparrow~ suit, Thorn, a certain Poison song came to mind. With a twist, darnit -- there's an excellent cover of Every rose has its thorn done by the rockabilly band Rex Hobart and the Misery Boys. It rocks, country style, and the lyrics are poetic:

Every rose has its thorn,
Just like every night has its dawn.
And every cowboy sings a sad, sad song...

In honor of the song I went and found the biggest 80s hair that I could, and now I feel a bit like a purple german shepherd. Good thing my eyes are pointless (much like a cave-dwelling insect. Why do I know this? I spent much of my childhood hunting them with my father, who is an entomologist).

I love this suit. I love the belt (Allegory gave hyasynth a lesson in tinyprims, apparently, and wow - can't wait to see what hy does in the future), and the brocaded collar and jacket fastenings make me pan in and stare. There are three other colors to this suit that I might have to purchase right now, a black-on-black version, red, and sea. It comes with 12 pieces, including bits that I haven't shown you guys at all, like the gorgeously belted shirt.

In which I laugh at myself: I've had a sekrit blog-crush on Dakota of Fashion Junkie for a while now, so when she asked if she could photograph with me I jumped at the chance. She posted the results in her blog, and boy-Ach looks exactly like the lecherous roue he is. Yes, it's true, I have a certain love for yaoi. Beware of letting your bois into my clutches! I will pose them like miscreant Ken-dolls! *grin* -- In any event, I had fun with the innocent little elf.

***Suit: ~silentsparrow~ thorn suit in violet, with 12 parts including belted tails, a different kind of belted jacket, shirt with a back belt that is also on the undershirt layer, options for a long or short shirt, a jabot, cuffs, pants...

There's nothing wrong with the Eighties (okay, apart from the hair...erm....), and "Every Rose" was the theme tune to our school trip to the Italian Alps in, I think, 1988....ah, the memories.....AND we used to have very large belts, too!

I got this outfit last night in teal simply because I don't own anything from silent sparrow in that color yet ! o.o
