ContraptioN and Hotdog have a fanastic collaboration out at The Men’s Department, a set of fencing swords & poses as well as a set of fencing attire (not shown). This was definitely an excellent reason to do another video; even the poses are static it allowed me to show a much wider variety than I could in a couple of images. But of course I needed to take some cool shots as well, so you will find those after the video together with the full credits for all items worn and used. This post also features new outfits from the Dreaming Thicket and Stitched.

A couple of weeks ago, I took notice of a new (or at least new-to-me) brand called Hotdog thanks to the stylish coat that Ran is wearing in this photo. Around the same time, I also spotted them participating in the Pose Fair with a pack of male poses. It did not take me long to send Ran shopping, though it took us a bit longer to get this post together. But at least the frock coat is available at the Dark Style Fair for a few more days and the same goes for the poses at the Pose Fair. Afterwards, they will presumably find their way to the eclectic Hotdog mainstore which already houses a small collection of releases showing off their unique aesthetics.
