Its back. Yup, for our 20th Blogger Style Throwdown I’m up against Ranger Theas, a friend of my partner Luna Jubilee. Ranger used to blog on her site for a while, but decided to take a break from SL. He recently told us that he’d decided to come back to SL for a bit (supposedly a woman lured him back, but you didn’t hear it from me). To celebrate his return, I invited him to a throwdown that will hopefully get him back into the blogging grind.
Ranger managed to select the “look of the day” theme, which made its first appearance with Nic and Dahlia last winter. This time the theme was taken a bit more literally as “what would you wear out today?” with 2500L to explore our respective styles.
Express Zenovka – I’ll Do Anything
Go make your next choice
be your best choice.
And if you’re looking for a boy with a voice,
well baby I’m single.
Are you in the mood for some dude?
Are you in the mood to be subdued?
Or would you rather just mingle?
Let’s get set then,
to go then.
And let us jet set,
we’ll be like the Jetsons.
You can be Jane my wife.
Should I marry Jane tonight?
If I could.
I’d do most anything,

Ranger Theas – The Emperor’s New Clothes
A long-time, well-trusted friend told me about this new suit she saw the other today. She told me I would look fantastic in it. My ego swelled as she continued to gush about my rugged good looks and fantastic physique. I know I work out everyday, and anything would look good on me. I didn’t mind her fawning on me, as I’m completely used to that by now. To my surprise, she pulled out a package. She claimed this wonderful suit was inside. She whipped open the box top, but left me puzzled. There was no suit.
She acted as if the suit was there, starting to unfolding it. She told me to take off my shirt, motioning to me to come over so she could slide on the jacket. I played her little game, but saw no suit and didn’t want to offend her. I motioned as if putting on the coat. I felt her hands brushing across my shoulders and down my back. As I spun to look at her, she spun with me and told me not to move since she’s making adjustments.
As quickly as she had the jacket out, she had my pants off. I was confused about the suit but questioning her intentions even more. I smiled, thinking there was more to what she is doing. As I tried not to laugh, I realized all this time she has continued her boasting of how great I look and I wasn’t getting horizontal with her. Drunk on compliments and “clothed” in this attire that I couldn’t see, I was too ashamed to tell her I couldn’t see it as she urged me to go out and show off her gift.
Proudly, I paraded down into the busiest area. Nothing was going to stop me. I felt great in my new look. Hoping for more kudos, I waved to the crowd as a hush felt over the throng of people. Suddenly, a voice in the distance yelled “Put some clothes on, you perv!”
Ugh. I knew I was naked. I KNEW IT! My “friend” is so off the holiday card list.
