A Dark Summer Style

So it's the time of year again when people expect you to spend time outside... I have never been a lover of summer and much prefer a wintery feeling autumn day than a swealtering summer day. Though sometimes you find you have to get yourself dressed up looking pretty and head out into the world, sometimes I feel the need to make myself look a little girlie all at the same time.
This outfit was pulled together all because of a dress... The yumyums Summertime Sun Dresses - which come in a variety of colours, with each colour in two different styles - are perfect for soaking up the sun in, or if you are like me trying to hide in the shade and remain cool lol... I went with a very summer colour - that's soot if you are wondering - as you can see, but I blame that on the hat!
The hat comes from LE FORME, and can be won in a gacha at The Gacha Mania Event, but I will warn you the one with the skulls and veil that I have on here is rare and I got fairly lucky in winning it! The girls in the MC will all be wearing pretty hats at some point I imagine LOL...
People said it was strange seeing me dressed in such a girlie way, albeit with a somewhat gothic - not the word I'd have used but they did - twist.... Maybe I will have to surprise people by dressing more feminine in the future?!

What is she wearing;
Hat: LE FORME - Massacre Spike Hat Black Veil RARE (Available now at The Gacha Mania)
Hair: TRUTH - Maisy
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item)

Climbing in the Heat

Oh my goodness the heat this weekend made me want to strip totally naked and hide in the shade... The temperature was around 34 degrees Centigrade - or around 93 degrees Fahrenheit - which for Holland is crazily hot! Even getting dressed in SL was proving to be a problem, as the thought of putting clothes on was just UGH! So, even though scantily clad tends to be a regular occurrence for Rudh, this weekend I wanted less clothing lol... I found the perfect dress for that!
The DRBC created Nikita Dress - which can be found at a very low price for this round of Suicide Dollz - really lets the air in... I can say I have a dress on but actually at the same time let the air in hehe... HellBone was heard to comment as he walked past my screen about would I like some material to go with my dress lol, but he can't complain too much, least I change my clothes LOL!!
Then as always came the fun part... I LOVE accessorising... I have way too much choice but I still love doing it! This time I kept it fairly simple, with a Liberty spiked headband from flipmode, some simple jewellery and a pair of Grillex Sunglasses from The Forge to block out those harmful sun rays from my living dead dolly eyes!
Nice and cool for a hot summers day, no wonder though that I felt uncomfortable in RL... Rudh has wearing nothing much down to a fine art LOL...

Why would something so pretty give me nightmares?

The reason for the naming of this post was that I had a little giggle the last few days... I've been wearing a past group gift sweater from Corvus that bears the slogan "You Give Me Nightmares" around the MC, and well it just tickled me I guess... I have a weird sense of humour LOL, but along with the fun times they do seem to be the ones that get me stressing in my SL...
Though the purpose of this post is not really for the shirt LOL... It's more to show off this GORGEOUS Witching Hour Release from ImmateriA - the Morgana Circlet. It is available in a few different styles but I loved the simplicity of this version, and the bat in the middle is just SO CUTE! Such a cute touch! I accessorised in my usually random way, adding a pair of horns and a cute ring, but I went in a different direction make up wise after rediscovering something new in my hoard... 
SongBird is constantly coming out with new pretties... I LOVE the eyes that have been created recently with their rainbow colours, but they seem to be only available for a specific type of eyes, I just hope that Nimil plans to use the textures for boring ol' Mesh eyes too lol... She did however, create these Hungry Ghoul eyes with make-up textures that look like the bloody is flowing straight from the eye and over your cheek... 
They didn't show up too well in the picture but I've added another close-up just to show you how cute they are... I just wait now for the rainbow eyes LOL... 

What is she wearing;
Horns: Souzou Eien - Ossis Sacri Horns in Elegant Full 
Hair: taketomi - Ayame  Bento (Available now at Kustom 9
Headband: ImmateriA - Morgana (Available now for The Witching Hour)

Miss Dy-Na-Mi-Tee

When I was at secondary school - that's high school for anyone who isn't in the know about the British system - there was a female musician called Miss Dynamite, and she released a song called "Dy-Na-Mi-Tee"... Now remember that thought and hold on to it... It will make more sense later...
Now... Just recently I had been shopping on the Marketplace, looking for something to dress someone up in LOL, and I stumbled upon the most Rudhish top I've seen in a while. I HAD to have it, I was gifted it by an adorably sweet Dutchman that wasn't my husband and then I spent the next few days wandering around the grid in an outfit that didn't leave much to the imagination hehe...
This was the outfit in question, and Stefan you are a sweetheart for buying me the top. I really love it! HellBone actually commented to say that my outfit was a bit barely there, but hey if it gets you to notice me sometimes Hell then you will have to learn to take it LOL... Granted I could have found bigger shorts, but the Sugar Sinister top was crying out to be worn like this LOL...
Then came my favourite part, the accessorising. Now I dug around trying to find something, a collar was something that seemed to fit and so the DeliciouS Ripped Collar with it's torn off leash was a great find in my hoard. It was the Time Go Fast Hat from Obscure - that Jimmy suggested - though that prompted me to start thinking of this song. Oh and once again, Jimmy was right, it does look AWESOME! 
For those of you that are interested, and this is a first as it's not something that I would generally listen to lol... The Miss Dynamite Song "Dy-Na-Mi-Tee"...

What is she wearing;
Hat: Obscure - Time Go Fast in Red & Dark Candles 
Hair: Magika - Such 
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item) 
Face Wounds: (Under the Eyes) Utopiah - Excessive Pain Makeup, AND,  (Right Eye) Corvus - Scarred Face Tattoo 
Collar: DeliciouS - Ripped (Past Suicide Dollz Item) 
Top: Sugar - Sinister Top in Black 
Shorts: Razor - Vas Micro Shorts

The Tiki Bunny guided me to the SWAMP GIRAFFE?!

I have been a bit of a bad and kinda slow blogger of late. I have been so busy dealing with RL work and then goofing around with the MC - and making sure each and every one of them is 100% OK as much as humanly possible - that I am running behind on the blogging front LOL... I am working on it now and plan on playing catch up with some REALLY awesome things to share, including MishMish goodies, yummies from yumyums and maybe even at the end of the month a little bit of Horror from the new and improved Horror Haute!!!
First up though let me bring you the cute... I went on a trek and wandered through the swamp like jungle today... When I have ever told people that I studied Archaeology at University they always make jokes that I am one of two people - Lara Croft or Indiana Jones - this weekend I let the Indy side of me out as I went exploring, discovering a rare tribe of Tiki Bunnies in the MishMish wilds... I am told these bunnies can also be found at The Seasons Story, but beware they are not as cute as they look, they are little savages hehe... Though they weren't the only discoveries I made... Somehow a pair of cute baby giraffes ended up in the middle of the swamp jungle?! Don't ask me how but the MishMish wilds are a crazy place it seems...
My exploration outfit could actually be as acrazy as finding giraffes in a swamp though, and it really did get me some funny looks from the MC as I went out on my exploring mission. The reason for the outfit was all down to the two bags I decided that I HAD to wear LOL... The smaller of the two, though no less animaltastic, is the Zenith Lion Head Bag from The Seasons Story. This is a rare one but all of the animal bags in the gacha machine are simply adorable, I would have been happy with all of them. I did get lucky in my winning though, a lion bag fits perfectly together with my other big cat bag, the Schadenfreude WildThing Tiger Satchel from Collabor88... Lemme hear your Roar LOL!
The rest of my outfit was made up of some older but still cute stuff... I wore one of the Pixicat Oriental Kimonos in a summery yellow colour, along with a pair of crazy - but sticking with the animal print theme - tights from Izzie's, finishing with a pair of Ugg Boots! Even in SL I love my Ugg boots, though maybe not so much in the summer LOL...
OH AND LOOK AT THAT... the re-appearance of a HAIR FAIR ORIGINAL hehe!!!!

Dont Feed the Freaks

I am in a colourful mood at the moment when it comes to planning a look for my ramble space. I seem to be drawn to it, and I will be blaming it on the summertime feeling. Though in this case I am not sure the summer time was the reason I went crazy coloured...
I have been buying SO MUCH Hair recently but I really couldn't resist this one from Collabor88... Nylon Outfitters is not the normal place I would go looking for hair but MY GOODNESS I HAD TO HAVE THIS...
I doubt that I will wear it all that often but it was a case of 'Gimme, Gimme, Gimme' and some serious grabby hands. It is available in a wide range of colours, and fits crazilyy into the theme of the month - which is safari - but while I was putting my look together safari was the furthest from my mind. I wanted something crazy, and that would be how I ended up posing before a do not feed the freaks sign.
I needed something equally eye-catching for my outfit, then I remembered this gorgeous swimsuit I bought at Summer Fest from Valentina E, and it's companion headdress the Carmen Fruity Fascinator.
I also pulled on an adorable necklace from Cute Poison... It's the special new release for the latest round of one word... The chosen word this month is Wonderland, and I bet you can tell just where that took everyone's imagination hehe... 

What is she wearing;
Hat: Valentina E - Carmen Fruity Fascinator
Hair: Nylon Outfitters - Cheetah Bob in Ombre Watermelon (Available now at Collabor88)
Eye Shadows: (EyeLiner) Nemezi - Zebra Black,AND, (Shadow) [ a.e.meth ] - Cheetah Liner + Eyeshadow 
Eyes: Dead Apples - Thunder in Attack and Orangine 
Lipstick: PIDIDDLE - HyperLip in Wild She

Things are getting a little Hairy!

Hair Fair 2014 officially opened it's proverbial doors this morning at 12AM SLT, and now the rush is on to get in and grab all those lovely new wigs... 
If you have no idea about Hair Fair then time for an education... Basically for the past few years, a group of organisers and designers have been collecting together at this time of year to raise money for a charity called Wigs for Kids. Each participating designer releases three or 4 new styles that will only be available at the fair for the duration of the event - hence why any hair designers may seem a little frantic at Hair Fair time, with a proportion of the sales going to the charity... and what a worthy charity it is - least I think so... The money raised goes towards creating wigs for children with diseases or on medications that may have made them lose their own hair. Having worked with children that have suffered with this problem in the past, I have had the pleasure of witnessing a child who through no fault of their own has lost all confidence along with their hair being boosted by a new 'do'. I've seen the way that wigs from charities like this one can really bring smiles that have disappeared and watched children go from shrinking violets to dancing daisies all by the addition of a wig and so when I was given early access to the event I was honoured to be able to give some of my time, along with a lot of my lindens, to helping out such an awesome cause. 
Like I said I SPENT A LOT, there are SO MANY different styles that it was hard to choose what I wanted. One of my favourites was this Charlene style from LeLutka - a store that I do not normally visit and may have to check out more in future - I was looking for things that were not only cute but different from a lot of the styles that I already had... I came away with a great collection!!! 
The left hair is Midori from Wasabi Pills, and I just loved the curls and braid... Wasabi Pills has always been a store that I have gone to for mesh hair, I love the textures and styles that come out of this place.
The right hair is from Analog Dog, and I do have a confession to make. I used to really have no interest in the hair from this place. I was always a bit put off by the textures and the styles, but as of late there have been some really interesting fun and kinda random styles created, like this Other style! 
Then the only short style that I bought at the Fair this year, which is the Cherry Bomb from Clawtooth... I loved the cute curliness that is SO MUCH like the way my hair looked when I was a little kid in RL! It just called out to me hehe... 
The hair on the right is the Pickle Hair from another one of my go-to stores, Ploom. I loved the long style with the adorable little pigtails - Jimmy said I looked like a poodle but hey what does he know LOL...
The Birds of the Sopha OhMai hair were just too much to resist... I HAD to have a hair with birds or tweeters as they are called. After trying on all of the OhMai collection, I had to spend a little time deciding which Birdy mess I wanted... Sopha Won! 
The Right side hair is one from Lamb. Lamb like Analog Dog was a store that I wasn't ever really into, but fell in love with this adorable Scared style.
Lastly I found a couple of freebies that I kinda liked... There are so many adorable things at Hair Fair this year, including the most gorgeous Rapunzel Pig from OhMai that you can grab for free, but hair wise I liked the trilby hatted cheapie from elua called Kei and the Kisii style from Saltgrass... Both of these are very new stores to me, I've never even heard of either but I will definitely be going to check them out!!! 
So these things are likely to come out again and again and you may well get sick of the sight of me wearing these hairs but for now I HAD to share with you... I hope you love them as much as I do and if you are going to go to one event this summer in SL... Maybe you will want to make it this one!?
