I recently bought a RED UNION SUIT from BATTLE GEAR TOYS and a photo was requested.
Have to say they are excellently made and fully functional with none of that out-of-scale velcro fastenings.
All those buttons work just like actual ones do. The back flap even opens.

So here are my two miners enjoying their shave and bath in preparation for a wild Saturday night out in the frontier saloon.

(***Anyone of delicate disposition need not fear to proceed to view.  Despite the title of this post, this time NO "tallywackers" (???...weird word!) were exposed in the course of this shoot. Promise!)  lol!

What an outstanding set-up! Looks like a scene straight out of the days of the Forty-Niners (or whatever the opal mining equivalent down in Oz would be).

The broken mirror shard for a shaving glass is an excellent touch! With a reflection, even!

Funny story about that little piece of mirror Dave!
Planned the set-up one evening and wanted a small shard of broken mirror to look suitably rustic. Was wondering where I might get same . Thought I could maybe look on the road somewhere for some accident remnants.
That very night a small wall-mounted shaving mirror in a guest bathroom decided to fall onto the floor, ....hey presto? Instant prop!

"Be careful what you wish for"....eh? lol! lol! lol!
Glad I didn't want a broken chandelier or somesuch!

Looking at that picture is taking me back to the Wild Wild West. That picture would also work in black and white too I think.

I was really actually meaning sepia instead of black and white.

Fantastically atmospheric. You put a lot of thought and effort into these. Very Happy

The Red Union suit looks a high quality piece of kit also.

Great shot and as others have said the reflection in the mirror is a nice touch bounce

Thanks Alex, Kev and Jim! Your comments are much appreciated.
Must admit I am in some ways drawn to doing "Wild West" scenarios.
For this one I was able to use the shaving mug and brush that came with the Military Life Playset I bought some time back.
