Here comes a Pretty Witch...

As of late I've been a little dead, but there is always some hidden sparkle waiting to burst out... Sometimes I go rainbow Rudh, others it's Kawaii Rudh, but this time it's Pretty Rudh and I just couldn't hold it in any longer!
For my Birthday recently, my MC family took me exploring... We went to a sim called The Grand Duchy of Picklemoon, and if you haven't heard of it then you REALLY should go check it out! It was like being in my head! There is a haunted house that could actually be my brain!! Not to mention all the other areas that would make fantastic photo shoot locations. No doubt I will be going back again and again to find the best backdrops for my crazy photos!
I decided to use the location for the newest photo of Pretty Witch Rudh. After all, there is nothing better that the pretty witch likes to do than take a walk around a pretty location!!!
The pretty witch look that I pulled together started at a little shopping event called The Kawaii Project, you may well have heard of it!
It was there that I found this pretty - but so not my usual style - outfit from {amiable} called Daisy. Although the outfit comes in a variety of different colours, I went with the simple black colour to really make the daisies pop out! I dressed it with a pair of the gorgeous Kawaii Project Wingtip pumps that were a release from uber Kawaii store Katat0nik and then dug out a pretty witch hat that comes attached to the Olive Wicked Hair...
There was just one last thing... What should I have as my Witches Familiar... I couldn't choose lol I had two in mind... SO I went with both because I am greedy like that... I have two three-eyed Pixicat kittens - that I am in love with - and an adorable Spid-eek Pet Spider from SilentSparrow. I normally would never be anywhere near a spider but how can you look at my little pet and tell me he's not as adorable - if not more so - than my kittens?

Hair: Olive - the Wicked Hair in Lavender
Skin: yumyums - Hope Skin in Latte (Past Skin Fair Release)

The Death Cart is Leaving...

The Horror Haute Death Cart is about to roll out... Today is the last day that you can get your hands on the Plague infested wears and I will excitedly tell you that this month has been one of my favourites. It has been brilliant for a Living Dead Dolly like myself. However the Death Cart rolls out today, taking the plague victim collector along with it... Yes the plague was so bad, this body collector died too...
*dimma* has created some awesome grieving poses for this month's Horror Haute line-up - you can see one in the close up photo below - but the Death Cart Pose Prop is by far my favourite pose of the month. Either Pull, mourn or act like the dead, this cart has all the poses a Plague Body collector might need!
Now, as a Death Collector I needed to make sure that I was dressed the part... I had to look professional! I called in The Untitled, and they created this brilliant Death Collector Outfit, complete with jacket, trousers and bowler hat! As a final accessory, I added the cute Black Death Necklace from ImmateriA, which by the way has a cute matching ring available too!
Then bad things started to happen... My skin became pale as the Plague settled into my body - thanks to Reboot for that - my eyes, although always a pretty shade of green, became deranged and diseased looking - curtesy of Laudanum Lollipops - and then right before my eyes the Symptomatic nature of the Plague took control of my body... My fingers started to die right before my eyes, and the last thing I remember before I fell into my Death Cart was the call of a SongBird!

Hair: Magika - Things
Skin: Reboot - Plague Skin (Available Now for Horror Haute March)
Eyes: Laudanum Lollipops - Death's Stare (Available Now for Horror Haute March)

Spring is in the Air, Couples pop up everywhere....

So it seems that Spring is in the air, that feeling of romance is taking a hold and couples are springing up everywhere LOL... It's not just me that has mentioned the Spring Thing... My sister Solde mentioned that her maternity collection is suddenly seeing a lot of attention too!
Still, I have been surrounded by new couples this week... It's like I cannot move without getting in the way of their soppy, cuteness... Not that it's a bad thing, but both HellBone and I have reached for a sick bucket in the last couple of days LOL...
It does however promote a prime opportunity for me to both practice my photo skills, whilst showing off some of the new poses from Signature Pose... Just have to hope that the crazy looking Photo Bomber doesn't get in the way of the shots?!
Tila and Mongo were spotted sneaking off into the bushes together LOL, and she really doesn't look pleased that I spotted them... I decided that it was better to keep my head down and let them gaze "Into the Sunset" together...
I jumped on my noble steed and rode away from the TilaMongo Tryst heading on down the road... Well hello what is this that I spied in one corner... My adopted Mum - long story and it may come out later lol - KaraD and her new man-shaped play thing, LittleOutlaw. Of course, me being a little brat I had to get in the way of their posing for a photograph, mum was all "Hold me Close" and I was like BLEHHHHHHHHH... Oh well Hi-Ho Silver, AWAY!!!
I went in search of people that weren't going to be soppy new couples... AH HA, my little brother Athrun I thought... When I found him, he and his lady Shery were having a bit of a romantic reunion of their own, something like "One Night in Paris" perhaps?... Dammit... LUCKILY there was a handy Frozen cardboard box close-by that I could just curl up in, until the sickly sweetness stopped and I could sneak away...
But what was I going to do with myself... All of my usual people to annoy were busy doing couples things... THEN I REMEMBERED MAY OLD KITE!!!
I was being good, just minding my own business of kite flying, when it dragged me across the sim... There have been some very strong wings blowing across the Netherlands in the past few days! It wasn't my fault... But OH BUGGER! I accidentally got caught in a very special moment for my big sister Solde and big brother Chopper - OK yes I know it sounds weird but it's Biker family, not incest LOL - and well Oh crap I'm in big trouble now...
I hid in the clubhouse and waited to be told off by the disgruntled couples LOL... Solde passed me a sick bucket and that was luckily all the telling off I got... PHEW... I dodged a bullet on that one...

BTW... Tila and Mongo are not a couple! They were two bodies that were hanging around at the time of the photo session. Tila is another of my Biker sisters and Mongo happens to be a stalker from the DDMC lol... Both did make awesome models however!
OH AND Solde and Chopper are not getting engaged, although she did try to cause a bit of a stir on facebook with the photo... At least not yet anyway, who knows what the future holds!
Thank you to all of the lovely couples, thank you for letting me photo bomb you LOL...

Bring Out Your Dead for Horror Haute

BRING OUT YOUR DEAD... BRING OUT YOUR DEAD... The calls of the death cart mean can be heard as the rickety old wooden carts are trundled through the streets, creaking and groaning under the weight of the pile of bodies their carts now contain. The streets are infested with rats, now the cats are all dead. The stench unbearable... Yet those brave men in their Plague Masks and robes trundled through the streets collecting the diseased bodies... 
They missed one though... A crazed scientist kept a pretty - if you could call her that as she was covered in plague sores - young lady in his laboratory. Keeping her alive on a diet of fresh type O blood, she was to be his greatest experiment... He was to find a cure for the plague! 
Horror Haute is back with a monthly dose of the macabre... YAY! I have to say that looking at all the goodies available this is one of those months that really got me excited! Zombie Me was tickled pink by having a lot of new things to play with, skins, eyes and all those other things that a dead girl needs! 
First of all though let me tell you about the location... It was so much fun to wander around the Channel Island Asylum, it seems well put together and the place has a strange sense of eeriness considering it doesn't feel too deadly until you wander further in hehe... Be aware of the things in the dark corners!!! 
I have two Horror Haute-y - yes I know it's not a word - items to show you for now, there is a LOT more plague to come but for now just two pretty things... Firstly and possibly the most obvious thing is the AMAZING skin and eye set from Stargazer Creations. The skin comes in 3 different tones, each with or without the infected look, and the eyes can either be normal - I mean normal for a Plague Victim - or infected too... 
The other thing I wanted to share here was this Necklace and Ring set from ImmateriA called Ashes. At first glance the brilliant orange stone is just like any other jewel... Until you look closer.... 
With the help of a handy gif... let me reveal to you the secrets the jewel contains!!!!
Blood Slurpee anyone?

Hair: Ploom - Yuki (Past Event Release)

My last outing as a Photographer/ModeL

For the last three months, my fab designer sister - Solde Rothmanay - has asked such an amazing favour of me I have been a little flabbergasted to be honest. She had ads within a widely read SL modelling magazine called ModeLS - check out page 65, THAT's ME!!! LOL - and she had asked if I'd like to do the pictures for her! 
When am I ever going to have an opportunity like that again? So I said yes! The first month was a look fit for a shopping Diva, the second an anti-Valentine, and now...
This dress cried out for a bit of a hippy look... So flowers in my hair, flowers everywhere - check out Wanderstill, Ode if you don't know it! - and a bright, fun, summery dress to call in the warmer season in a gorgeous yellow colour... The dress is gorgeous, not a brand new release any more - though it was when the photo was being taken - the Soul Designs Marsh Retro Dress comes in a selection of different colours, but each has that summertime feeling! 
Just a side note, this is possibly the last time you will see me, human and unscarred for a while LOL... I feel so naked in this photo and I am fully dressed... Weird how that works huh?! 

What is she wearing;
Hair Wreath: Shar's - Maiden Daisy Wreath

The things in my head Monday Meme...

I feel in the mood to work on a Berry Meme this week... It's been a while since I did one but as she always says we can pick and choose and do what we have time for... Well, I'd pulled together a pretty photo but had no idea what to write to go with it... THEN Berry put up a Meme this week that I really liked the idea of... Answering questions with the first thing that comes into our heads lol... THIS SHOULD BE ENTERTAINING lol... 
Told you the picture was pretty lol... I am liking the pictures that I have been creating recently, I just seem to be getting a little better and this was no exception to that... Perhaps a little more girlie than you might be used to seeing me, but hey sometimes you have to step outside the box right?! I stepped outside the box - my photo box that is - and wandered around Hazardous to get this shot, but let's get on with answering Berries statement questions... 
All I need to do is finish the sentence with the first thing that pops into my head... There shouldn't be any waffle, but you know me lol SO I cannot promise LOL... 

I am… barely awake.
I want… breakfast.
I have… a cough.
I wish… I could go back to bed and get warm again.
I hate… alarm clocks that wake you from a good dream.
I fear… losing people I care about.
I search… for ways to make everyone happy. OH AND FOR BREAKFAST!
I wonder… why can't people just get along for civilities sake sometimes. 
I regret… not reaching for my dreams as I should have yet. 
I never… like to see anyone cry. 
I always… need to talk to my mum since I moved away from her. 
I usually… don't like staying in bed late but today I'd have made an exception! 
I dance… like no one is watching. 
I sing… badly to annoy my husband because it's funny! 
I often… find myself slipping into a day dream
I sometimes… feel the need to scream as it always makes me feel better
I need… warm socks
I cry… A LOT! 
I should… be working but cannot be bothered!
I love… my friends and family.

The City of Cartius

Gor is something that I have absolutely no interest in...I never have and never will, although I have dabbled in the BDSM lifestyle in SL, I just find that the rumours floating around about the Gorean community paint a pretty bad picture of things and I would rather steer clear. That having been said, there are rumours about every social RP style in SL I know - there are a million around the Biker Community, and I shouldn't tarnish everything with the same brush but there are other reasons why Gor isn't a place I'd chose to hang out too...
HOWEVER, I will say that sometimes Gorean based creations, be they clothing, decor or even locations can be pretty! So when I was offered the chance to get into a brand new Gor RP sim early, I knew I couldn't turn down the chance.
I pulled on a pretty dress, and boldly went exploring around the new build... Parts of it were still being built, but once it is finished and fully decorated I am sure the place will look intricate and enchanting as it was already promising to be.
Set in what appears to be somewhere between a medieval and a fantasy town, the large towers dominate the landscape. With it's port, jail and other open spaces, this place will I'm sure be filled with role players before long, and I really do hope that it becomes large and popular Gorean community.
I enjoyed wandering around so much, I spent a good few hours checking out the nooks and crannies of the "City of Cartius", taking pictures which I've shared in a collage below, I will admit that it did give me a bit of a craving to at least give Gor a try... Perhaps? Then again maybe not? But never say no right? LOL... Well OK No I doubt it will happen... But it was so pretty!!!
I also found myself thinking about Gorean fashion... I COULD NEVER DRESS LIKE A SLAVE GIRL lol but some of the other styles can be very pretty! 
I know I am not looking 100% true to the Gorean style for women here, but I couldn't resist this dress from FDD called Selena. At the time I found it I was wandering like a lost soul, shopping at Totally Top Shelf, when it caught my eye from the other side of the room! It was perfect for the somewhat eleven, somewhat historical, mystery girl in a Gor sim look I had running through my mind. 
I will find out today if Cartius is open to the public yet, I will ask around hehe... But if you love Gor, you should get your little RPing butts over to this sim... It is well built, very pretty and there are lots of places that you could get lost while roleplaying for hours here... 
Thank you for letting me have a sneak peek creators... I wish you masses of luck with the sim and building your community!!!
