When I first met up with Zoe to go shopping for guns, she asked me what I wanted. ‘A classy Luger!’, I said. Of course, we didn’t find any and I ended up spending L$1500 on the Socom. But now she did find me one and it even shoots blueberry muffins! Now I’m not the kneeling type of meta-person, but Hienrich Krieghoff’s Luger pistol is _so_ impressive! It doesn’t come out that well in this picture, so if you want to take a good look at it, just drop by in-world and ask nicely and I’ll show it. If you don’t ask nicely, I’ll just use it to shoot you. ;)
And next to the Luger, there was the Lady of the Reich outfit. OMG! ‘Zoe, tell me to buy this!!’ where upon she replied: ‘Well, I did.’ Surely I did too. *grins* Our first life TOS is a bit tight where it comes to WWII uniforms, medals, … and other militaria and my first life budget is a tad to limited for buying a lot of them anyway, so I just couldn’t pass on on this SL opportunity. ^^
Now, first and foremore, this quote from Spotz Spork (SS’ items on SL Exchange), one of the founders of Das Waffenamt: ‘World War II is a major part of history that should not be ignored nor forgotten. I’ve worn various uniforms for nearly a year on SL and have not once gotten into any trouble for it, because I do not cause problems in them. A healthy dose of respect for the history behind them is a good thing to have.’
When Zoe and I TP’ed to this shop, I found out that the ‘BJ’s Flack Jacket’ I often wear is from Das Waffenamt too. Up until now, I’ve seen nothing but great clothing from them and I’m very very very impressed. It’s a shop I’ll often return to. If you’re interested in the Lady of the Reich costume: it’s L$500 but very much worth that, as it’s extremely well done and comes with boots, skin, shape, hair, gloves, panzer crusher/beret, an iron cross second class, eyes, jacket (a pity that wears as a tshirt, I would have loved it to be a jacket, so I could still wear my breast tattoo), pants and a small AO.
