Listen to the Goats

Its early morning, I drank a little bit much last night and now I'm feeling not hungover per-se but more like a feeling of fluffiness!! Needless to say I am taking it very slow this morning, and armed with a coffee I will just sit and talk to you... Maybe I'll take some more pictures, that always seems like a good wake up remedy, but while I love taking all of these pictures perhaps I should take 5 minutes and actually share them with you huh?! 
This morning, I am going to tell you about a conversation I had... With a Goat!! 
I'd been visiting my MC Sister Lilian's home, and while there I saw her lovely meadow for the goats. Complete with rusted tractor and their very own rusty shed to play in these goats seemed so cute and happy that I had to wander in and pet them. 
One of them though, is a very talkative little bugger, bleeting and making fun of me... "Who wears high heels in a goat pen crazy lady?" it said LOL... Poor Lil came back to hear me having a conversation with a goat that didn't actually talk!! Sometimes I wonder why my sanity chooses to leave me when I log into SL hehe...
These goats are from Jian - and are currently available at We <3 RP - they are SO FREAKING CUTEEEEEEEE I am going to have to steal them from my sister and run home with them heheh... 
But yes the Goat was right, I am wearing some very high EMPORIUM Marilyn Heels in a field filled with goat poop, it wasn't the smartest idea I must say, though heck they look SO CUTE with my outfit... A pair of jeans from my jeans addiction store that is SPIRIT and a super cute top from offbeat, which is decorated with little cacti that I picked up at the last round of The Chapter Four. Sadly the event has closed but these tops should be available at the offbeat mainstore so go check them out!!! 
So lesson for the day... Listen to the Goats when they tell you wearing Heels in a goat field is a bad idea!

How much is that Hooker in the Window?

Yesterday was my 9th Rezday in SL... 9 long years I've been riding the rollercoaster of emotional ups and downs that SL and it's inhabitants can bring. Even the lows have made me stronger and wiser, and I am glad for everything I've been through, especially the lows although you wouldn't have heard me say so at the time LOL...
ANYWAY, in the Gators MC, we have a way of celebrating Rezdays that mean you become the King or Queen of the MC for the day. On that day you get to do whatever you want and the MC have to join in with you... WELL, for me as my passion is photography I wanted to do something cool... Two of my MC sisters and I have been thinking about the way we all take such different photos and have been talking about a possible exhibition in the future... This was our chance to take the first shot, and Mongo was even dragged along for the ride hehe...
I'd spotted this pose prop at Exposeur a few times, but at the Festival of Sin, I knew I had to have it... Luckily Solde felt the same and she had already bought one!
The prop is the Red Light Showcase - you can get it either at the Exposeur Store or at the Greed Location in the Festival of Sin by the way - but it reminds me of the city I live in, it's a brilliant and fun pose prop for people to play on... It comes with a heap of poses for up to three avatars and OK I'm using a couple pose from Pose Maniacs too so that the "client" can really test the merchandise hehe, but both Solde and Lilian are Red Light Hookers using the pose prop!
You'll see me in this lingerie again in another post, but for the people that are interested this an erratic set which you can grab for yourself at Collabor88 this month... I have much to tell you about this set, so watch this space and you might get to see me in it again soon sometime! To stop my stockings ripping at the foot end I wore a pair of REIGN Buckle Strap Heels and I wore my hair in a sexy pulled back style from Truth... If you want to know what the other girls are wearing please feel free to ask by the way and I will find out the details for you. I just didn't feel like writing a HUGE list of clothing hehe...
Then Mongo the customer came to check out the merchandise... Deciding between the biker chick hookers as to which he wanted to test drive LOL... Perhaps I'm in luck? LOL...

(If you'd like to know anything that the others are wearing please feel free to ask me and I will find out, there would be too many things to list here... Trust me, it's easier this way LOL!)

The inner Envy Demoness takes hold...

Sometimes I take a picture that I really love the entire way through the photography process, and others never seem to be right until you're at the end and you're scrutinising things. This is one of those pictures for me, and it sums up my feelings towards it's self if you just look at the hidden depths of it.
It's a little demon in the suburban but city neighbourhood... Somewhere similar perhaps to the houses that are inhabited by the desperate housewives?! The location is the Festival of Sins Envy area, but this little demon is definitely of the envious type, and perhaps she went from desperate housewife to depraved demon... You never know what happens behind the lace curtains and closed doors!! 
The look I am wearing is mostly made up of mostly ImmateriA... The dress, was one of the reasons I felt like I should be a desperate housewife, it just struck me as something that might be seen worn in the suburbs by some fairly well-to-do fashionista. I LOVE the lace detailing and the shape of this dress, and although I am not entirely sure the Aristo event is still running, if you wanted to try checking it out then it's a must! The wings, tail and horns make up part of a set by ImmateriA too - the Unseelie Hunter is a demon, and it comes in various colours that also include a skin. I didn't wear the skin as I wanted to look kinda human but one that was letting her inner envious demoness take control...
You can tell I'm envious, I'm so envious my eyes are green with Envy...

Sitting on a Spool with my Bro

Family in SL for me mostly consists of my bestie and the MC - members of which have filled family roles, my mum and son for instance - yet amongst all of the MC brothers and sisters there is one that is more like a real little brother to me, his name is Blake. Blake Laguna to be exact, he took my surname!
It's funny to think that I have someone who refers to me as his big sister, someone that I will not likely meet and someone who is in an area of the world that only images from the internet and tv allow my brian to have an association with at all... Blake is in the Philippines! Sound's like such a gorgeous place to be, doesn't it? Much prettier than dreary old Northern Europe!
So anyway I finally caught a typical picture of Blake and I to share with you. This is what happens with us a lot, we sit and do not a lot of anything but talk... I miss him when he's not around, so heck talk is good... Really good!!
We're sitting outside the Gators MC clubhouse - you're more than welcome to come and visit us any time if you want to by the way - but the chair we are using is one that was set up just for this photo. It's a new release from Consignment for LTD. The Spool Benches are available in three different wood textures, but within each base colour you can choose the textures of the blanket and the cushion from a large selection in the menu!
We were having a lazy day in the swamp so I was dressed casually for a change... Some of my favourite but still kinda new release jeans - the SPIRIT Daydreem Shorts that are still available for this month's Collabor88 - and a Low Moon Collar from Delirium Style that would keep my arms restrained behind my back if necessary!
We dont really have a lot in common when you look at us, but Blake is always able to make me smile. He is so sweet, so funny and more often than not a little bit naked LOL...

Evil Mermaid Inside!

For some reason the craze of the Mermaid is still sweeping through SL like a case of the Chicken Pocks in kids... It seems that everyone has caught the half-fishy bug and I have to say I am really enjoying playing the mermaid myself too! I've never really been one for wearing the mermaid tail, but I've always had a thing about being a mermaid that can walk on land, and luckily with the pretties that are being released in abundance I've been able to do that a little!!
A part of me hopes that the cult of the Mermaid that is sweeping the SL fashion world, doesn't become like the cult of the Vampire or the Neko, but with events like Enchantment - yes the one based on Fairytales - going down the mermaidy route it is very hard to ignore the call of the sea!
This time though I am NOTHING like the conventional Disney Mermaid Princesses, unless perhaps you mixed them with a rock chick?! I would say I blame parts of the outfit but why should I blame anyone, I LOVE this mermaid on land look!!!
Starting off with the TWO main reasons I pulled this look together, I couldn't resist them at The Enchantment and I still get a kick out of the outfit that I pulled together using them!! The two things I simply had to have at the event were the adorable hair and the amazing tattoo!
The hair comes from SpellBound, and it's accessory options are awesome. You can wear it with or without the strings of pearls and there are two different headdress options - flowers or a coral tiara - plus you can wear it without any of these so it's a fairly versatile wig!
The tattoo is possibly one of the coolest I've seen since the Dolly wounds, and as it comes from the same store, it really doesn't surprise me too much. The store that is antielle has a habit of making things that I NEED, this was no exception! The Inner Mermaid Tattoo with it's ripped skin to reveal the mermaid within effect and the amazingly vibrant colours of the scales beneath is just gorgeous, and although Macabre it really fits with that whole Little Mermaid idea!
Once those things were on, everything else just seemed to come together easily. A cropped Evil Mermaid half-tee from Asteria and a pair of Blueberry Lana shorts, with somet killer high EMPORIUM Sally heels was all the outfit I needed, I accessorised by adding a Candy Crunchers Fish Bone Headband to the already adorned wig, some adorable Stupid Cupid glasses from Cute Poison - that OK didn't really fit the theme but looked really cute with the outfit - and then for that edgy look I added a Zenith Shark Bag!!
Finally it was location time, and I scoured a few sims looking for the perfect Evil Mermaid moment without much success... It was about that time I re-discovered that I'd bought the Trompe Loeil Nerissa Seashell Bath from a past Collabor88 event! BINGO! With the addition of a few {anc} Bubbles, a Bubble Brigade Crab from Half-Deer and a Delightful seahorse fom Fawny, the evil mermaid in me was ready to leave the sea and head to the hearest place to find a fisherman to lure to his demise!!

Smeared Make-Up and Skeleton Hands

I've been on a bit of a blogging roll today, and I'm feeling like going for a posting hat-trick with something simple but pretty... This could even become a new profile photo for me as it really sums up my love of pretty and macabre all in one close up portrait of my vain self!
It's a simple photo and I have played with the lighting a little but the super pale skin is one of the Rigor Mortis Skins from Stargazer Creations. If you want to see the photo without the edit or if you're interested in seeing the skin in-world call on me, or check it for yourself in a demo! It's a pretty skin for a dead girl!
I then decided on some pretty dead eyes that are some of my all time favourite dead eyes from The Skinnery, and bright red lips... The red wasn't working for me until I decided to smear it all over my cheek, accidentally slicing my face open with a ring as I did so... You too can get this look from anitelle, just bare in mind that a smile like this HURTS!
As a final touch and a nod to my macabre dead girl side, I had fallen into a weird love - as only a girl can with her new accessories. This Hair Flower Accessory is a fairly new release from DirtyStories for Totally Top Shelf. It wasn't too badly priced, but wasn't cheap either, I didn't care though I HAD to have it!!
There is no fancy story, there is no frilliness with this post, what you see is what you get and I really like what I've got hehe...

Miss Vain Glutton - Belle of the Sin Ball

The Sins have taken over, there is a festival in their honour for the second year in a row and this time they are not holding back... Spread out over one sinful sim, this is the place to share in the debauchery - while at the same time still retaining your modesty somewhat hehe... There are so many amazing creations that will tickle your tastebuds - and if you're anything like me have you reaching for your wallet really fast!
Each sin has it's own designated area, although the goodies you can find within could sometimes have a cross over for multiple sins, and each has been beautifully decorated to suit the basis of the theme... I LOVE the Desperate Housewives feel of Envy, the Casino set-up of Greed and don't even get me started about how much I love the Gluttony area...
I went a little crazy buying things... Then when I was putting an outfit together, one came to life so vividly, and it just screamed to me what the sins might look like if they were personified, that I simply had to share it with you! Let me introduce you to Miss Vain Glutton...
The Victorian Pin-up of the Sin family, she's the daughter of Gluttony and Vanity... Photographed outside the family's gorgeous old Victorian Villa on the Isle of Serendipity, the delapidation of the place becoming evermore apparent as the Sins take hold...
Her dress in the style of her Vain mother. A beautiful Valentina E Pinup Corset Gown in a pale lilac colour, that simply screams "Look at Me!" - which can be found in four different colours at the Shopping District which makes up the Vanity location of the Festival of Sin.
The mask that hides her hideous face is one of her fathers - at least you think it hides her face, perhaps the straps are a disguise to make you think her terrifying Gluttonous Void is truely a mask - we shall never know. The mask created by her Glutton father just makes it that little bit easier! You too can get your hands on his ContraptioN at the Dining Area that is the Gluttony location at the Festival of Sin.  
The remnants of her childhood washed away, as Miss Vain Glutton emerged into society, the belle of the Sin Ball, yet she - like me in my RL I guess - cannot and will not totally give up her childhood plushie friend... As she stands before the old villa to catch the last of the days sunlight rays on her skin, she squeezes her childhood friend - an Angry Mouse Doll from the Katat0nik store. People tried to replace it with a new one - stealing her plushie was a challenge for many a heroic young gentleman - they even offered her the exact same toy from the Gacha Casino in the Greed location at the Festival of Sin, but seriously her father gave her rows of razor sharp teeth for a reason...
Currently she is only a glutton for chocolate, but don't make her mad, or she may develop a taste for something meatier!

Mask: ContraptioN - The Gulttonous Void Mask (Available Now at The Festival of Sin in Gluttony)
