preposterously awesome  

We all know I have a coat problem. Slightly less well-known is my bag problem, which is particularly incomprehensible because I don’t usually carry one.

I would, however, give up all the other rarely used bags in favor of never using this one:

Seriously, I do not know what level of kick-ass one has to conquer in order to deserve one of those, but I have major, major bag lust. But of course, what color would I get it in? The brown seems somehow sexier, but the black, more practical! Insofar as a black leather 4-way hip holster thigh strap steampunk beyond-comprehension-awesome bag is practical at all, I mean.

Also, I would like those abs and hips that go along with the bag, please.

They’re available (the bags, not the abs) here, from this Etsy seller. Dude, they are just SO AWESOME. Costly, but they’re hand-made and for the sheer amount of awesome involved, they seem worth it. Of course, I would expect it to last forever.

Maybe for Christmas? :)

That is definitely a bag worth lusting after!
I would go for black, though, if only because would go with more things. (Though in my case it would be a choice of goes with jeans or goes with jeans, since I live in skirts, and my only non-skirt lower body garments are two pairs of jeans.)

Can you imagine what a hip bag would do to the lines of all your coats, though?

I'd have to get some short coats! OH NOES! :)

Just don't close your coat tightly.

Open leather trenchcoat billowing slightly in the wind, black bag strapped to one thigh, big-ass gun in a hip holster on the other side...

Whereas I look at that and think "I love the lines, but all the dangly bits would make it into a cat toy waiting to happen..."

Find me a sleeker version, though, and I'm all in. In brown, of course, because brown is the natural leather of a proper adventurer. Urban or otherwise. :-)

And those hips either belong to a mannequin, or were photoshopped beyond humanity, Catie.

Looking at the other pictures, the abs and hips demonstratively belong to a real person who is blessed with a phenomenally tiny physique.

I still call photoshop (having seen it used all too often on photos of a similar nature). That sort of featureless sleekness around the lower stomach is not natural, even for women who're genetically gifted. And if she were ripped, you'd see muscle tone...

She is clearly a small woman who has also probably been photoshopped, and I would like this to not turn into an argument on my blog, please.
Laura Anne Gilmansuricattus on October 16th, 2012 11:59 am (UTC)
nope, no arguments here. I was looking at it from a purely speculative (and giggling) take.

Oh my. Thanks for sharing the baglust!!! Time to check with my leatherworking friends and see if someone wants a project!!!

Oh wow. I like the Ms. Moneypenny even better.
kitmizkit on October 16th, 2012 02:21 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I'm not certain I don't like Ms Moneypenny better too. Serious bag lust going on here!

I want - and want to spend sometime looking at all the other bags... Hmmm

You totally derailed me with this post. That is indeed a fantabulously awesome bag.

I've been staring at the Blaster Bag 4.0 for months now, trying to decide if it's worth it. Jungle Tribe makes some amazing stuff.

I have to agree 10,000% on this! 10,000%!
Miss Mayvalancymay on October 23rd, 2012 10:49 pm (UTC)
Want. (but also only if it comes with those hips and thighs).
