Nothing much to say about this. The photographer just loved my spurs as much as I do
Dropping a littel funfact about the costume: The part of the Sam-Brown-Belt that goes around my shoulder is a part of one of my handbags. I bought an ordinary Bundeswehr-Belt, made some loobs from fabric, added two D-rings and clipped on the Handbag-handle. It used to be an improvised solution but somehow I liked the shiny look of it so much that I just didn't feel like sewing a new one anymore.
About the spurs: Ocelot is wearing a pair of spurs that either doesn't exist (I have never seen such a shape before and I also didn't find it in any shop that provides equestrian items) or are hard to get. It was also almost impossible to find a pair of brass-made spurs (that would have at least looked golden) which were not too expensive - at least not one of those swanky western-riding spurs. And so I had to decide: Will teh spurs look boring but golden or do I want BIG DAMN FANCY spurs. of course... for Ocelot the latter. So they're just silver with a brass-weel but they look absolutely fabulous.
And most importantly their sound is wonderful (jingle jingle jingle)!

(love the engraving btw although it doesn't give me a tactical advantage 8D)
