Your tasks for today...

Being the Gators MC Secretary is really more like a full time job than any work I've had to date in SL, Seraphim came close but this is more like I can at times be playing Mummy, Agony Aunt, Personal Assistant and Clown all at once. Don't get me wrong I love the people in the MC family - we now have such a good bunch of people that it would be horrible to see any of them leave.
My job as the secretary is supposed to mean that the MC runs smoothly, and well sometimes smooth running keeps you more than a little busy. Now, the reason for my rambling on about the MC is that well sometimes I can delegate the work that I have to do to others - even though more often than not it's HellBone asking me to make sure things get done LOL - but on this occasion, I was able to delegate some stuff to Boyfriendyface, aka Vice President of the MC!
Our clubhouse is decorated in a very rustic, kinda swampy style - we are the Gators, you weren't expecting a ballroom were you? - but one thing we do have is a very comfy and cosy hang out space where our members can just be family. Jimmy and I were curled up filling each other in on the goings on, and I remembered I had tasks for him...
Pulling out my awesomesauce new binder - I can now make it look like I'm busy working thanks when I carry it around! - from yumyums. These binders come in a variety of designs, but my favourite is definitely this bacon and eggs design, and can be picked up at the current District 5 Event within the Scene compound! Thanks Iokko, you made me look like I am actually working even if it's only me pretending LOL!
Also available at District 5 is this gorgeous collar from Cute Poison. I am still a sucker for Sae Luan's jewellery. I cannot get enough of her piercings, and frequently pimp her piercings out to people - the piercing I have on in the photo is the current group gift called Starlust, for example - but her other jewellery also proves to be something I love. The Heretic Collar - seen in the photo above - is a new release and can too be found at the District 5 Event within the Industrial Compound.
If you haven't been to District 5 yet, don't miss out... There are some awesome things to be found in the mini mall style set up, and with each of the 5 districts being based on a different style theme, there is bound to be something there that might just tickle your fancy!

The Back is a Game Changer!

So many times, when I am taking pictures of myself I never stop to think about the back of an outfit... I focus on making sure that the front looks great and, I'm sure like many others, I adjust it so that it looks great from the angle I'm taking the photo, who cares what the bits you can't see look like LOL... 
Sometimes though, the back is much more interesting to share than the front, and then it's fun to try to find the best way of shooting yourself from a different angle! 
This dress was a prime example of when the back has to be shared. The front of this Sultry dress from Blacklace, is fairly plain, fairly businesslike and although cute, it is when the wearer turns around that the dress looks like WOAH! 
I love the simple detailing of the laces up the back and OK my butt is showing, and you cannot wear big Bridget Jones undies - the big old lady style knickers discussed in the Bridget Jones books - a sexy pair of panties could also be used to preserve your modesty... I on the other hand thought "Meh I'm showing my butt" LOL... It did get very appreciative comments from a number of the guys who are always around, Jimmy being one of them and since he bought me the dress I felt it was safe to name drop him here, but I did have an attack of the self concious when my little brother - who will soon be introduced here - told me that the dress was nice it was just a shame about the person wearing it - only good thing about that comment was that it came from my little brother though LOL... 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Xantheanne in Red

Face Wounds: Utopiah - Excessive Pain Makeup

Look I made you a drink...

If you have any idea about me at all, you may well have realised that I have a somewhat kookie sense of what I like to wear. Some days I dress in one style and the others I swing back to another, but today I have found one of those rare outfits that lands with a thud right in the middle of my two usual styles LOL, and I LOVE IT!
OK these two aren't my usual colours, and maybe they do clash just a little but oh well... Sometimes for the sake of an random look you have to dress a little crazily.
This whole look came about because of a skirt. I took Jimmy on a shopping expedition a few days ago, and one of the events had these amazingly bright ruffled miniskirts complete with studded belts. I was looking at them thinking HMMMMM when I noticed the lime green and pink Tyrant skirt - by FK! Designs available at the latest round of Suicide Dollz - in what the designer has called Zombie Vinyl! I HAD to have it, ignore the fact it was green and pink, I would find a way to make it work...
I dressed myself with a shirt from R3volt in matching pink and green, and then added some strappy sandals from Death Row Designs, which complimented my favourite new bangles from ReVeRie perfectly... 
The pose was the perfect compliment too I thought... Who wouldn't want someone to being them a fruity cocktail in the heat of the summer?! I have Image Essentials to thank for the drink, so thank you Kay! I just hope he didn't put too much alcohol in there?!

What is she wearing;
Hair Flower: Clawtooth - Fancy Pants Hair Flower 
Hair: Magika - Such 
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item) 
Face Wounds: (Under the Eyes) Utopiah - Excessive Pain Makeup, AND,  (Forehead) REPULSE - Lobotomy Stitches Face Tattoo 
Piercing: Cute Poison - Zephyr Piercing 
Top: R3volt - Devona Top
Bracelets: ReVeRie - SeLKieS Bangles in Black

Hunting for Dinner with Cake...

Collabor88 has been open a while now this month and there is some seriously adorable stuff to be found within the event space. Took me while to get in, but once I was there, there was no stopping me and the money was flowing from my pockets faster than it has in a while.
The theme for this round is Odyssey - it's also the Collabor 88 Birthday round as they hit their 3rd birthday! - and boy did the designers taking part go to town on the theme...
I took something super cute, this picture without the scary bits would be adorable, but then well you know me I had to give it that weird Rudhish twist. It took the cute picture with the adorable little satyrs from MishMish - available now at Collabor88 - to a whole new sinister level, as Demonic Rudh with the Scissor hand hunted for dinner, using cake... She knew she'd have success, who can resist cake? Thanks to Schadenfreude - and a past FLF release - I may or may not have lured these cute little guys to their doom!!
I dressed myself in something that could also have been fairly cute, if I didn't put that Macabre twist on it.. OH but I will admit something here, and I am not ashamed to do so, I LOVE these shoes! They are the Collabor88 release from Remarkable Oblivion called Phalanx Wedges... Never normally would I choose white over black, but in this case I was drawn like a moth to a flame...
I also had a moth to flame incident over the Scissor Hands - which coincidentally also come from Remarkable Oblivion, although admittedly not from Collabor88 - when these were released, and any time I've seen someone wearing a pair, I craved them... This time when I was shopping in the store I gave in to temptation hehe...
I stayed with the spikey, sharp and dangerous theme when accessorising the outfit too... The outfit itself was one of my Collabor88 must buys - a Gladiator Dress from Pixicat - but the accessories were things I pulled out from deep in my hoard LOL...
The spiked - Liberty - headband from flipmode and the multiple black bracelets from ReVeRie were things that I had had stashed away and kinda forgot about - BAD RUDH I know! - then it was just a case of a drop more blood, courtesy of Suicidal Unborn, and a pretty Magika wig and I was good to go hunting with cake...
Still think I look like Heidi now Kara? LOL...

What is she wearing;
Hairband: flipmode - liberty headband in chrome
Hair: Magika - Harmony (Available now at Collabor88)  
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item)

The Changing Faces of the Gators...

They've been on at me for a while about doing yet another family photo, but I think that it was about time for me to re-shoot them all, especially when you consider the original line up barely exists anymore. It kinda saddens me to think of all the faces that have been and gone in the MC family, but the fact that four of the original line-up still remain is brilliant - and one of them is STILL wearing the same outfit too a year and a half later LOL...
This is one of those epicly difficult photos though that I am glad I don't have to take very often. I bought a pose from GOLA - the Bench Guys Pose - that I found on the Marketplace, and then because I needed more people, I simply - with a little help from Jimmy and his pose maker - added them in. The Piggy Back race poses are from Image Essentials, with other poses being either made or added from my collection.
While I´m talking about them, let me name and shame them LOL... From left to right on the back row we have Chunkybum (Chelsea), Blakey, Tequila (Tila), MeGa, KaraD, G-Man (Gerco), Kara, Tinky and Athrun (Panda). Next row, and maybe some faces you might well recognise, Gator, Boyfriendyface (Jimmy), Hubby (HellBone), ME! and CharlieBumBum (Charlie). Then finally, sitting all ladylike down in front, we have Lexi, Ken Lee (Leigh), Rava and Alexis.
A crazy bunch with some crazier antics, not to mention the way they always keep me busy, but each of them brings a little something different to the party and each of them for right now at least is stuck with me... Until I can find the stuff to disolve crazy glue LOL...

Time for an introduction...

It's time for me to introduce someone who has become a central figure in Rudhland in the past few weeks... It feels hard to remember that he has only been around a very short while, because we have become so close, but as of right now he is definitely one of the most important guys in my SL and one of my best friends in either life.
So yeah, the picture was a random, we were hanging out shot, but this is Jimmy... For further clarification, Jimmy is not the cute plushie goat - LOL that's from Bokeh - though I can be easily confused, Jimmy is not only cute, but he is like a giant cuddle monster too hehe...
What to share about Jimmy...
For starters he is HellBone's "Hubby" - a bromance if you will - both will often be heard calling each other babe, and both have a very similar reaction to a fart noise... Although I guess HellBone will always be the one to take the fart jokes to new levels LOL. This did earn us the titles of boyfriendyface and girlyfriend - I'll leave you guessing which is which.
Jimmy lets me use and abuse him... I ride Bitch on his bike, I hang from his shoulders on a regular basis and I am constantly talking in his ear. His bum in leather pants could provide hours of perving entertainment, and the way that he cracks up at the most random of YouTube Videos just has me in stitches. The guy also gave me a bit of a Five Finger Death Punch addiction, not that that's a problem or anything as FFDP are awesome! 
But Jimmy, thank you for being there for me as of late... You've definitely been a rock - or should that be a boulder -  that has supported me through meltdowns, and provided the tonic pick-me-up that was needed every time. Plus you really do give the snuggliest hugs! 
To quote you Mr. Finkelstein "I heart you muchly!" *hugs* 

What are they wearing;

Face Wounds: (Under the Eyes) Utopiah - Excessive Pain Makeup, AND,  (Forehead) REPULSE - Lobotomy Stitches Face Tattoo

Top: R3volt - Devona Top 
Plushie: Bokeh - Wild Thing Goat in Dough Marking (Past Gacha Event Item)

A Little Girliness Never Hurt

Things have been happening in the last few days, I've been so tired that I haven't had much of a chance to think and have been running on auto pilot. That's never a good way to live, as it will always end up in a melt down if you keep ticking over like that... For a while it's ok but sooner or later... BOOM!
I had to take some me time... The MC had to wait... They had to do without me being there to hold their hands all the time, I needed to do something peaceful for me or I would have exploded LOL... So what did I do while I was on my own? I went and got changed into something totally different from my normal style and found a place to take pictures of course!
The dress is one that I have had sitting in my hoard for a VERY long time, and have been wondering what to do with it... This time I just dug it out and then everything fell into place. The dress itself is made by DRIFT, and I am not sure if it is any longer available, but I remember there were various designs all with that same summer day feeling. I loved this one as it has ladybirds on it, and I am a little partial to them for some weird reason, I have been since I was kid.
The dress really brought out my girlie side too... I went so girlie I almost didnt recognise me and had to keep the scars in place just so I knew who it was that was looking back at me.
I went girlie on the accessories to match the dress... A really pretty flower crown from Things, a cloudy necklace from League and an adorable Sheepie Purse from Adore & Abhor, just perfectly fitted the look, whilst I wandered through Wanderstill...

Crown: Things - Firin Crown in White Flowers
Hair: Lamb - Sacred (Past Hair Fair Item)
