Feeling Lonely? Time to get Creative!

Needing a bit of a day to myself today... Feeling a bit like I'm lost and don't really fit in. It's stupid really, but sometimes when you see a bunch of pictures on facebook - of a family having a thanksgiving dinner for example - you realise that you're not actually part of the fun because you're not invited... It's kinda demoralising... I'm not gonna let it bring me down, I am gonna take a step back and do things on my own for a while though! Sometimes "Me Time" is the best for when you're feeling like this... 
Doing something creative often helps! So today I sat Rudh down, and let her make some adorable Christmas Cards for her friends... 
Sitting on her own, she's left to wallow in her thoughts, which may not be the best idea but at least she's being creative, right?! 
The little cards that she's got are from Ama - a set of 2018 Holiday Cards which are available now at Tannenbaum - and she's sitting back surveying her work... From the look of her pose - an Image Essentials "Take a Seat" Pose by the way - you can almost see her thinking "yup those look good, I wonder if I should make some tea?!"

What is she wearing; 
Hair: Navy+Copper - Sundae in Gingers 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Top: Atomic - Peek-a-boo Tee 
Pants: Vinyl - Hart Wide Legs Pak in Grey 
Pose:  Image Essentials - Take A Seat V2, Pose 7 (Available until November 30th at eBento
Cards: Ama - 2018 Holiday Cards (Available until December 22nd at Tannenbaum)
Stool: brocante - Repurposed Stool

The Weird Chick from the Funeral Home!

We all have to work right, at least the majority of us do, and Monday Morning can in some cases be one of the days you wish would just fast forward! I love my jobs, the work that I do is always fun and the challenges I face are things that help me better myself! Yet, when I was younger before I started having dreams of becoming an Archaeologist - not that I'm actually using my degree now by the way - I wanted to be a mortician! That like the Archaeology thing, hasn't really been the direction life went in but I'm not gonna complain! 
So now, Rudh is going to help live out my dream a little... She's going to be that weird, kooky chick that works at the Funeral Home... 
Basically I was playing around with an outfit - a look of the day if you will - but it seemed so perfect as an outfit that said kooky chick in the funeral home might wear and well that's what it became, especially since I found myself looking at it against the [noctis] Harrowgate Funeral Home Collection - available now at ECLIPSE in separate pieces or as a fatpack!!
In fact, while we're on the subject of ECLIPSE, let me tell you a little about my "look-of-the-day" outfit... The shoes with their socks are a release from peculiar things called "Lydia", I'll admit they aren't really my usual style but I actually LOVE THEM! So cute, and available in pretty patterns - but yes I went for the basic black option! I wore them with some fishnets and an amazing dress released by PSYCHO.Byts for Tannenbaum called "Aradia". I'll admit I'm putting going into Tannenbaum off for a little while, I cannot handle Christmas JUST YET and it's open till December 22nd so I have time, but yeah, it's NOVEMBER and therefore way too early for me to think about Christmas! 
Anyway, I'm a little jealous of Rudh going to work in the mortuary today, but I better go cut the cheese so I hope she has fun and doesn't get too many tips from the dead!

Hair: TRUTH - Reyane (Past Group Gift)

Entropy for a Party

Oh my god this morning I woke up with the worst headache I've had in a long time... It wasn't a hangover - those are signs of fun the night before - no this was more of a migraine, caused I think in part by the fact that I had an extra blanket on my bed and therefore got too warm in the night! 
So now I feel a little like death... Maybe I could let myself be dark and evil and macabre for today. I mean Halloween and October never really die in my house, I always like to let the living dead doll me out to play... Maybe I'll let her go party while the real me suffers! 
I have to say, I LOVE this outfit that the living dead doll me has decided to go out in, even though the stench of all that blood right now added to my headache would make me a very unhappy girl in RL lol. 
The entire reason that this outfit, which I love so much, came into being was because of the simply amazing collar from CURELESS for the current round of Eclipse called "Entropy". It's demonic, it's macabre and it's bloody, but if you want less blood there's a darker version too! It's so well detailed that I got very excited when I put it on looking at all those little details! I put an outfit together around the collar! The perfect bad girl outfit to go out partying in...

Hot Drinks for Cold Hands in Sweater Weather

The Gators MC is hosting a photo contest again this month and I want to make sure I share with you the details of the even, I also want to share my pretty picture for it too, but that's just me trying to drum up support I guess! 
The theme is Autumn - or Fall depending on which side of the Atlantic you're on - and so it's all about getting cosy, russet colours and that feeling of Winter coming... For me, it was time for a mug of hot apple cider... 
When I thought of Autumn themed, I was instantly thinking of a place called Moochie - a pretty place with lots to explore that changes with the season, or at least it seems to anyway! Right now it's all Autumnal and there's even HOT APPLE CIDER!!!! It's the perfect place for Sweater Weather! 
Here's the information about the contest though...

Things that go Crack in the Night!

I woke up this morning from a nightmare, it wasn't nice and I couldn't get back to sleep... So I spent time find ways to terrorise Rudh this morning. 
I took her camping, and admittedly that's not something I'd ever do... I hate camping, I'm not good with roughing it! Rudh either, she's too much of a princess! 
When she goes camping, she hears all those creepy noises in the forest and it makes me wanna run away from it like it's a horror movie... Any little noise... A twig breaking and it's like ARGHHHHHHH RUN AWAY... 
Big scaredy Rudh is running away from the noises she heard outside her Bluebird Campsite - an old but still pretty set from Consignment - not pausing to check what made the noise... 
The poor little baby deer was just coming to get warm by her fire, but big scaredy Rudh didn't take time to get out of her sleeping bag - a gacha item from Junk Food for the Gacha Garden that ends today! 
If only she'd looked over her shoulder, what a wuss she is LOL!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Ciara (Current Group Gift) 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2

Superhero Kicks Practice

Looks can be deceiving. Sometimes something that is totally pure and innocent is anything but, and that which looks naughty is actually meant for a different purpose entirely. 
Today's picture is a prime example of that... Some may see a girl pole dancing, my totally innocent mind - don't laugh the game on Facebook said it was true! - sees a superhero using a handy pole to practice her slow-mo, air kicking moves!!!
OK OK so she does look a little bit like she's pole dancing... Maybe she is LOL... But I'm gonna tell people she's practising her superhero flying kicks and there's nothing you can to to say otherwise LOL... You can say it but I won't be listening... LALALA... 
From her Superhero hideout overlooking a SciFi Night below, she's practising with the help of a Nova Pole - from Violetility - to get better strength and flexibility! I guess her outfit doesn't really help with the idea of her being a dancer, I mean the workout outfit is an Essential Wrap Top and Thong - from Oubliette, who just took me back as a blogger and I am so excited about that - and a pair of spiked "Dark Desire" Boots - from lassitude & ennui for the amazing new Eclipse Event!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Exile - Milla in Reds 
Mask: Exile - Mystery Mask 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Outfit: Oubliette - Essential Wrap Top & Thong (Available until November 31st at AnyBody
Boots: lassitude & ennui - Dark Desire Boots (Available until November 30th at Eclipse

October Never Dies, but Rudh Did

October Never Dies... Halloween is an everyday thing for some of us - and for me that goes for Real Life as well as SL - and luckily now there's a brand new event starting in SL today for those of us that cannot get enough of the spooky, the gory and the macabre... 
Rudh had been left for dead after all the crazy deadness of October had moved into the crisp Fall of November, but that little living dead doll is finally about to wake up... It's time for the new Eclipse!
The new event that has me all excited is Eclipse, where October Never Dies... It's the brainchild event of the team behind DRD, and I'm SOOOOOOOO very excited that I've been nominated by one of the participating designers to be given the chance to blog for it! I nearly fell out of my chair when I was invited, I am beyond excited and I really hope that I can do a good job for all the amazing designers that are participating! 
Now the event opens today - November 13th at 3PM SLT - I will edit the post to add a LM later - but for now I have to wake the living dead doll Rudhie up... She took a nap in the Overgrown Fountain - a new exclusive by DISORDERLY for Eclipse - and... Oh... We may have a problem... Looks like the wolves have been chowing down on her again. Her lower half is missing! Only her entrails are visible - thanks to the Hotdog release for Eclipse "Gutted" - I guess we need to find some legs to Frankenstein onto her!!!
