I love big belts and I cannot lie

**DP**yumyum belt and bangle set D-brown

This post is about belts. I noticed when I got to Second Life that there were some fine belts hanging around waists, most notably neko waists. I love the clutter of them, the way in which they carry everything you might need for a virtual day within an easy hand-reach. Far beyond tourist belt pouches, these are made for action! You can do stuff like fling marbles, paint, exhibit your necrophilic side, or simply be fashionable.

It's a good thing that we don't feel any virtual weight, eh? I'd get a backache from some of these, but my avatar is tough! I am very sad that belts usually detach prim skirts, because belts and skirts are pretty. I am philosophical, however. Belts look great with a sleek pants set.

Notice the shrug? It's from the 50% off gift card sale at PixelDolls (ending tonight at midnight SLT). I generally let Hethr Engle write about PixelDolls because she owns the whole store, but it's difficult not to let some of these cute pieces slip into the outfit. The rest of the outfit is from Schadenfreude, something I've written about before -- the Revenant outfit in Ghost color. This outfit (combining the suit and dress sets) is insanely flexible!

In a small real life note, I'm heading to see the new Indiana Jones movie today, and I haven't been so excited since Temple of Doom! I love a good pulp movie, especially one with Harrison Ford's smirking face (he pretty much defines the word 'smirk', doesn't he?). I think I'm gonna go find my avatar a fedora and whip right now...
