Vestis Virum Reddit

Hey Gang!

Vestis Virum Reddit means clothes make the man! (This was one of the first things
I learned in Latin!)  So, is that true?

When you get a new doll or dress an old doll, how much does what he is dressed in 
or what you put him in drives the character or the story?

My Harold didn't come to life until he got his Carhartt overall!
I purchased them on eBay for him!

He just got a new pair of denim overall to add to his work wardrobe. You know
a man can't work hard in the same outfit... well not work hard and smell

So while looking over his new outfit before putting in on him I wondered how much
the outfit made the doll or his story.  Where the guy in the outfit might go to
find what he wants to where.

So here is Allan!

He is a shop at Ralph Lauren kinda guy! He just got a puppy as an early
Christmas present.  He is calling him wiener

Please note that I have repainted his hair and eyes! He feels like a new man.
He is kinda classic, a little roguish and very cute! He comes from money and
likes horses too!

This is Ryan!

He is a hip-hop City Blue kinda guy. He likes graphic novels,

Ryan: She is the screen saver on my phone! She is so hot!

 He is always looking for new apps for his phone which he often misplaces!

Here is Ramone!

He is a Banana Republic kinda guy. He is an archaeology fellow...
Ramone': Taxi!

with an emphasis on native peoples.

Ramone': Darn it!

He will be shared during his fellowship between Dr. Running Bear

Ramone': Move to a new place always takes some getting use to!

and Dr. Grey at the Museum. 

He loves Indiana Jones, Afro Cuban music and salsa dancing!

Here is Dylan.

He is an Old Navy kinda guy!

He is a social animal! He likes any kind of game! Sports games to card games!
He loves line dancing and Neo Soul music! He is learning to skate and snow board!

Here is Harold in his new overalls!
Harold: Now if I could get a new shirt!

OK, Thanks For Looking!

I realy like Ryan.

I think all of your men are very dapper! Harold looks kind of sexy in his work overalls. I have always said a cute guy who is handy is definitely a plus!

Ollie's Dollies said...

Those fellows are really sporting so nice duds!

Muff said...

"He comes from money and likes horses too." LOL, that tickled me for some reason. Quite the swaggish crew of men you have.

Farrah Lily said...

Oh wow, I love all of the new fashions..the boys are looking quite handsome over at your house! I love how you repainted the one guy to have red cute!

Raymone is just shy of being a hottie. I simply wish his hair was real and not molded plastic. Great looking post!

Jaye Frye said...

I agree, clothes do make the man, as clearly seen in this post.

Brini said...

Your fellas sure have some nice clothes over there.

Vanessa said...

Your men are all killing it in their own right. I love Ramone's whole look. I'm sure he will have lots of offers to help him learn the city.

Thanks for your comments Shasarignis, Phyllis, Ollie, Muff, Farrah, April, Jaye, Brini and Vanessa!

Shasarignis and Farrah, Thanks, I really like how he turned out!

Phyllis, So True, so true!

Ollie and Brini, I think the clothes added to their personality!

Muff, Money and horse seem to go together! House take money!

April, I think it is the glasses that are keeping him from being a hottie.. at least to some!

Jaye, Goal achieved! Thanks!

Vanessa, I think you are right! Let's see!
