Inspired by the wardrobe of Captain Malcolm Reynolds (aka Mal aka Captain Tight Pants) from Joss Whedon's television series "Firefly" and film "Serenity," starring the massively talented Nathan Fillian.

This shiny set includes a lovely brown coat and faux leather boots that were simply perfect for a Malcolm Reynolds inspired outfit. 

The handbag as well as an optional backpack--both leather-free also, as are the black gloves from Vegetarian Shoes (UK). The fingerless gloves are an added optional access that just seemed to suit the look and feel of the outfit. 

Drawing on his propensity for pistols and shooting people (politely), the earrings and necklace were an obvious choice. 

Although Malcolm wasn't a believer in much except flying and freedom, the scene from "Serenity" with Inara lighting incense inspired me to include a bit of zen along with this serene attire. 

Finally, the makeup for this ensemble is simple and earthy, which is somewhat ironic being that they live on a space ship rather than Earth that was...

=====================

(On a side note: It may only be a theme song to a short-lived television show, but it always makes me smile.)

(Theme from) Firefly

Written by: Joss Whedon 
Performed by: Sonny Rhodes

Take my love, take my land 
Take me where I cannot stand 
I don't care, I'm still free 
You can't take the sky from me 
Take me out to the black 
Tell them I ain't comin' back 
Burn the land and boil the sea 
You can't take the sky from me 
There's no place I can be 
Since I found Serenity 
But you can't take the sky from me...
