COLONIAL CATWALK


Urban farming doesn't get much better than the Lefferts house in Prospect Park, Brooklyn.  The Lefferts were a prominent Dutch farming family way back when Brooklyn was still "Breuckelen", and wheat, not irony was the chief export.  Welcome to New York City, where every house comes stocked with a costume closet filled to the brim with homespun haute couture.  Sometimes they don't even lock the front door.

  2. Have you thought of doing period porn? I, ahem, wouldn't mind coming in to advise on costume drama.

    Confession: I don't have an extensive knowledge of history, but I passed Western Civ with high marks.

  3. You seem to be poised half-way between "Good morrow to ye, Master Wheelwright," and "Howdy, pardner."

    I miss gay porn historical costume dramas.

  4. Hot! Hot! Hot!

    I love the period drama, as well. Would love to see a gay Pride and Prejudice. Colby would make a delightful Mr. Bingley.

    (One thing that destroys the illusion, for me at least, is seeing tattoos in period Porn. I love tattoos, though. Just not in my historical "drama".)
