For those of you keeping score at home, yes, Iâ€™m still powering my way through the Bare Rose folder in my inventory. Hey, if Iâ€™m lucky I may empty it out completely before the end of the year! Well, unless I make another shopping trip in the meantime. Another great ensemble (slash outfit, slash costume, slash roleplay gear) I found stashed in there isÂ “Voyager 3b”. This is a fully detailed and outfitted astronautâ€™s spacesuit, complete withÂ oxygen supply hoses andÂ gleaming helmet. These are good things, too, unless accidental asphyxiation isnâ€™t a problem for you.
The suitâ€™s detailing is well done, and itâ€™s non-specific enough that the suit can stand in just fine for one from any (or even no particular) space agency. Garment-layerÂ fabric “liners” are provided in three different colorsâ€”Gold, Blue and Blackâ€”so you can vary the look. Prim components are well done but fairly minimal in construction, so rather than being bulky the suit has a profile thatâ€™s slim but still looks realistic. For some reason, I particularly like theÂ boots with theirÂ chunky ridged treads, just the thing for getting (and keeping!) a grip on the surface of low-gravity planetoids. The helmet can also be worn under your right arm; a holding pose is integrated into the helmet and is triggered when you wear it.
June Dionâ€™s Voyager 3b ensemble includes pretty much everything you need for your nextÂ Extra Vehicular Activity outing, â€œextraâ€ role in that upcoming Michael Bay sci-fi extravaganza, or costume party. Please read the following fine print: Oxygen supply not included. Follow all safety precautions outlined in the ownerâ€™s manual. Management cannot be responsible for injury, dismemberment or death resulting from improper use. Open the pod bay doors, please, HAL.Â Boldly go.
L$140 at Bare Rose (Bare Rose 213, 40, 29). â€œVoyager 3â€, styled for women, is also available.
