Spider Shadow aka Leather Pants Man
Sunday, November 19, 2006

Last weekend in Vegas, I was fortunate to get some tickets to Zumanity, a Cirque Du Soleil show for adults. The content is the usual acrobatics but with strong sexual themes. The female performers were pretty much topless and the males showcased their muscular bodies. I guess you could say the "old" me would be more fascinated by the stunts and artistic beauty of the performers. However, lately, the "new" me can't help but gawk at some of the men, even when they merely standing on stage, doing nothing. One particular man caught my attention throughout the whole show, and I have to mention him here because the man is just simply gorgeous. I'm talking about Leather Pants Man.

Let me just start by saying when I got back from Vegas, I was dying to know who this guy was. After a little googling on the net, here's what I found: His name is Hugo Desmarias. This means he's not American and I'm already imagining him with a sexy foreign accent. Hugo plays Spider Shadow in the show, and is from the French regions of Canada. "He is a svelte and stealthy Cerceaux artist who swings from his hoop, performing daring feats of aerial acrobatics. In this act, Hugo showcases his aerial hoops, trapeze, dance and acrobatic expertise... not to mention one incredible body!"

Yes, I can't agree more, he's got one incredible body. We weren't allowed to take pictures in the theatre, so I only have pictures of him in my memory. He was bare-chested, and wore nothing else but black leather pants with red spider-like designs on the legs (probably where his character name Spider Shadow comes from). He has black hair, not too long but not cropped short either. And the way he moved on stage, good Lord. His stride was graceful yet powerful. Whenever he climbed the cage or lifted a girl you could see his muscles flexing. Oh what a beautiful sight.

The weird thing about leather pants man, was that he was... well, in leather pants! I never would've thought I'd be attracted to someone in leather. But I guess he reminds me of the heroes in several of my romance novels. One character came to mind immediately when I first saw Hugo: Cian MacKelter. Yes, I think Hugo is the perfect Cian, and will from this day forward always picture Hugo when I do my rereads of Spell of the Highlander. Ah, there's nothing like a real life hottie to replace the blank face + hot body combo that I conjure up in my head when I read.
