still retro

i’m still sorting though all these these c88 clothes but i figured i’d post another look using some great rockabilly styles.

retro-2

i have a creeper obsession. i used to own a ton of them but they were all old prim and pre sculpty so away they went. recently creepers have been EVERYWHERE and holy crap i think i have a pair of every one on the grid now…

retro-1

i suck and didn’t take a close enough photo of the jewelry i am wearing. schadenfreude made cherry skull earrings and a necklace for flf. i have no clue if these are still for sale after flf, but they are awesome!

this whole retro style made me visit artilleri (which is the sim these photos were taken on) and i miss that place so much! artilleri, we need you to come back and make pretty things again!

labyrinth dweller

so many good events! i am kinda overwhelmed with my inventory right now lol. here is a mish mash of some things from world goth fair, serafilms, and the dark style fair.

labyrinth-dweller-1

first off lemmie tell you that if you love the labyrinth, you NEED this skydome thing from A.D.D. Andel. when andel first showed this to me i just… i can’t even explain lol i am such a huge labyrinth fan.. this is such a beautiful take on that first scene after sarah gets to the labyrinth and she thinks its not so far and then she realizes she’s wrong…

its not a full labyrinth, that would be kinda insane but if you want to take photos in one this has a few sections to move around in and pose.

my little companions are from alchemy and they are at the dark style fair which is going on right now. i love these little mushroom dudes and the demons! they all include a wearable option as well as rezzable static options.

my outfit and makeup are from world goth fair which also started this week. if you aren’t familiar with this event, it raises money for the sophie lancaster foundation which is a charity set up after a brutal murder of a young goth girl in england who was beaten to death while protecting her boyfriend from assailants. their cause is something deeply important to me. so spend lots of money there!

Touch The Spindle

Touch The Spindle

the scene that scared me the most as a little girl was the part in sleeping beauty where maleficent lured aurora to the spinning wheel. the green glow and creepy dungeon looking room, and that music that made everything absolutely terrifying. i decided in honor of that frightening moment with this photo made of some of the items you can nab from the enchantment event.

this perfect spinning wheel set from hopscotch does not glow green but that’s what photoshop is for. the spinning wheel has several poses to reenact that fateful moment where aurora touches the spindle and falls into a deep sleep.

there are a lot of amazing prizes in the enchantment event. this round is a card stamp rally which i know a lot of people might not be familiar with. its a really awesome set up in my opinion and brings back a very popular event from sl days past. plus you get to visit the main stores of all the shops in the event, and i spent a ton after visiting all of them!

Down in the underground…

drow-1

it must be nerdy month because first there was star wars now i’m doing dungeons & dragons.

the drow are a fave race of mine, matriarchal society living in the underdark, worshiping their creepy spider goddess lolth.  drow are mean, angry dark elves. not something you’d want to encounter while exploring.

drow-3

i’ve put this look together using several pieces from the new alchemy gacha set currently at the fantasy gacha carnival. EVERYTHING in this gacha set is amazing. seriously no corners cut here folks. the pieces come with a colour changing hud which allows you to change the metal, cloth, and gems. the ultra rare is a really bad ass scythe. its not scripted but it looks pretty, and you can customize the colours on it as well.

drow-2

pink fuel put out a skin at the we <3 roleplay event that is to die for if you are a drow fan. 5 different skin tones and all of them have a bazillion appliers, with promise of free updates for life if more stuff comes out with appliers! i have been searching for a nice new drow skin that could be worn with all my mesh attachments and this is perfect.

here are a couple of goof off shots i took last night after the blog pics 😀

its the sith

so i was going to be a proper star wars dork and do a post on “may the fourth” but i didn’t get my stuff together in time to skirt in under the line. that’s OK though! cause i’m a sith, so may the sith be with you instead.

sith-1

the reason this took so long is that i tried to find a true sith skin for this post but could not find any orangy red skins with appliers anywhere! get on that skin maker world! (or point me in the right direction if you know of one). true sith (the species) are a reddish colour and have funky face protrusions. obviously i could not find that either 🙁 so i am a scummy humanoid with sith blood instead.

sith-2

fatewear made this fancy cloak which i apologize you cannot see very well because i wanted these pics to be kinda dark. but after damien made this cloak he posted a pic of him wearing it with a light saber and i realized THIS WAS PERFECT! you can use it for non-starwars related outfits too but why would you when you can be a sith! (or a jedi.. if you must…) the cloak is rigged to your body so it moves with you, it has several options in the hud, allowing you to control the length and look of the cloak as well as hood up or down (and even a hood only option!), and the colour.

sith-3

this cloak is a perfect example of why you should keep your old sculpty hair! unless you want to look like your hair is all slicked back, or shaved off, sculpty hair still has its uses. this old style from raw house fit almost perfectly under this hood and only required a few pieces to be shoved inside my head. something i could not do with any of the mesh hair styles i own because they are all one piece.

to finish off this post i have some awesome snaps i got last night that weren’t meant for blogging photos but they looked pretty cool and i wanted to share :p

be a poser

i am blessed with some amazing friends in the pose business. every time they make something its absolutely creative and awesome. people who make poses are sometimes left in the background, but i feel they should be highlighted just as much as the body products and clothing we put on our avvies.

pose fair is almost over and i hate that i didn’t have a chance to blog this stuff sooner!

hopscotch has this amazing set of poses that comes with billowing sheets of cloth for your right and left hands. i’ve seen these on a lot of blogs but i wanted to do my own pics with them as well.

the-wind-4the-wind-3the-wind-2the-wind-1

next i want to show off this gorgeous pose set from savoir faire. mostly hybie does shapes but she’s been dipping into the pose world and so far i’m loving what she’s come up with.

crows-2crows-1

another pose box i’m really loving, but one not at pose fair is this one:

this pose box is available at savoir faire’s main shop and there is a lighter spring coloured one as well!

Dragon Mother

dragon-mother-1

more game of thrones inspired pretties for me tonight! i am in love with this head dress from alchemy.. this is the ultra rare from their gacha at the secret affair. i got lucky and got it after only 3 tries!

dragon-mother-2

this outfit is inspired by the Daenerys Targaryen character from game of thrones. as usual, fateplay does the very best to make awesome hat tips to well known characters. the cloak is a separate piece and is rigged to move with your arm. it comes in several colours, but of course, i chose onyx. this outfit is available at we <3 roleplay.

Roar

a new event popped up recently called “the secret affair” and this round happens to be game of thrones themed.

i haven’t actually caught up on game of thrones, because its not on netflix and i don’t have tv, but i am going to read the books soon.  i managed to see season 1 all the way through and i loved it, so i’m hoping the books will at least quell my need to watch the show until i can gather it all together for a long overdue catch up.

Roar

i was very lucky on the alchemy gacha, and i ended up getting both this rare headdress, as well as the ultra rare which i’ll have in my next blog post. i do want to mention though that even the non-rare items in the alchemy gacha machine are amazing, and well made. its really a collect them all type gacha, instead of spend money until you get the rares.

Roar

i am squeeing over this cloak, because i love capes and cloaks, and sl has so few that are worth wearing. this one is gorgeous and comes with a hud that changes the fur and cape colours, and it has a bloody version! it also sets your shoulders in a pose so that you always look good in the cape.

shopping list:

hair: TRUTH HAIR Tyr
eyes: :: Exodi :: Riven Eyes (Fire)
skin: -Glam Affair – Mokatana – Petal
hands:  Slink Avatar Enhancement Hands
lashes: *NOYA* designs VAMP Eyelashes
