An ImmateriA Kali sent to help the Noobies for Monday's Meme!

The Hindu Goddess Kali - according to Wikipedia - is the goddess of time and change, often linked to the God Shiva, God of death... She is associated with signs of empowerment and although dark and somewhat depraved in her depictions, the artwork containing her image is often very beautiful and powerful too...
The Kali Outfit that I am wearing in this post comes from the store ImmateriA, and was available for the Escape event, which sees it's first round close on April 9th. The fact that she is a Goddess of time and change seems very apt for an event with the title of Escape I thought, that as SL can be an escape for some people from their hectic RL's into a place they can relax or find happiness, so it kinda sorta ties in with Berry's Meme for the week...
Berry asks us about things that we say to advise the new members of SL... Things that we wish someone had told us when we first began... From what I have read since she posted it too there are so many amazing gems of information - some of which could be useful for ANYONE, not just the noobs!
Rudh's top tips for new residents then include;
* Be what you want to be, not what you think others want you to be - This is YOUR SL, if you want to wear fairy wings, kitty ears, a horse tail and mismatched colours, then do so... Take it from me, people will try to make you conform - they do with me and the wounds I wear on my face all the time - but remember this is your SL, your dolly and you can damn well dress it how you want to hehe...
* Remember there are REAL PEOPLE behind the avatars - Real people with real emotions... Each one will be different... This isn't computer programming. People will be complex and emotions will vary and you have to treat people with the same respect you would in your RL. If you come in planning to act like a horrible person that thinks being disrespectful is OK and that no one will get hurt, you won't find yourself making many friends!
* There is more to SL than sex - Sex in SL is often something that people enjoy - heck I was no angel and I did enjoy it - there is plenty of it out there if you want to find it, but there are so many other things that SL has to offer too... Places to explore, things to learn and people that lead some very interesting lives are out there you just have to roam SL's virtual hills and dales to find these things.
* Start Organising your inventory early - I did and boy do I feel pleased that I did, but even now I can find myself sitting there for hours putting things in the right places and nit-picking it... It means you can find anything without needing to remember a name for something, everything has a place and you know where to look... I have sub-folders within sub-folders within sub-folders, and people used to laugh at me but now whose laughing!!!
* Be careful what you click accept on from strangers - I know it sounds harsh to say but there are so many people out there that aim to con others out of hard earned lindens or their inventory items or even in some cases a persons RL details. I clicked a gesture I was given once and tpped to Gay World, I know people with links

Springtime brings Duckies... A Late Monday Meme

I'm running a little far behind with Berry's Monday Memes... I have two to do, but I decided to kill two birds with one stone and use this adorable new release from MishMish to help me in one of the Meme...
The Meme last week was all about Spring. My favourite poem about Spring - more of a saying really - "Spring has sprung, the grass has riz, I wonder where, the Birdies is" definitely seems to be prominent in SL at the moment. All the colours, all the softness, all the cute!!! A feeling I felt overflowed when I opened the recent blogger box from MishMish and saw these Duckies!
My inner cute loving rainbow dolly is coming out and I am going to let it with glee... How can you not, these Ducks are SO CUTE! There are 5 different colours available and each one comes in three versions - you get two standing and one swimming! Personally I LOVE the mallard coloured duck the most, I've always wanted to have pet ducks like this in RL... I am getting there I have chickens but I will work my way up to Ducks!
The leaf seat is also a MishMish new release, this one is a group gift for anyone in the VIP group!!
Still I can use this very cute and kinda springtime release for answering Berry's last Meme Questions... Two birds, one stone YAY!
What is the spring season like where you live? – Spring for me Holland is pretty much the same as the spring in the UK, where I grew up... It tends to be fairly lovely. I LOVE that feeling of cool, crisp air in the morning and the clearness of the light that the summer haze seems to lose. I LOVE all of the flowers too...
What’s the first thing that pops into your head when you think of spring? – Daffodils. They are my mum's favourite flower and our house and garden when I was a kid was always full of them.
Which spring-themed sim in Second Life is your favorite at the moment? – To be honest I am a bit of a hermit at the moment and I haven't been out exploring much but after looking at the pictures and posts from people for the meme last week, I think I should...

Escape... The New Horror to Emerge.

The Escape Event is now open and this event is an exciting one... From the creators of the Horror Haute brand comes a brand new event with dark role play the theme of the day. So many events on the SL grid cater for fashion, but there has always been a bit of a limit - at least in my eyes - to those that are dark and depraved. The event started on April 1st - and there was not an April fool in sight - everything I was allowed to see as the newest member of the blogging team was just gorgeous... I can't wait to bring you more of it hehe... 
The first things I played with all seemed to fall into place as an outfit, so I thought you know what THIS is the perfect outfit for me to escape in and share with you the first of what I hope is many looks from Escape!!!
The Scorpions Love Horns - from Dark Matter -  are available in a rainbow of jewel like colours within one of the Gachas that can be found at the main Escape location... There are so many lovely things in the Escape Gachas, such as these awesome scythes from Souzou Eien - I loved the details and colours of the Silver Scythe of Samael especially, which can also be seen more closely in the close-up below! The scythe, however, is not the only thing I chose to wear with my Escape look from Souzou Eien, I have two other things that made me get very bouncy and that I simply couldn't go without wearing hehe... First off you know that I have a love of wounding myself in SL lol... You should have seen that by the fact that I always have scars all over my face! Well the Bellerophone's Gaze with the wounded bleeding out eye effect really tickled my fancy! Not to mention the gorgeous Thorned Embrace jewellery sets too... I was just bouncing around like a kid at Christmas opening those hehe...
The outfit that I chose to wear was one from a store called Bad Juju... Now I knew of this store but I'd never really tried out their designs... I will have to say that I am sorry for that because I love the textures and the designs - at least of those I've seen for Escape... Looks like I will be going shopping very soon hehe... The outfit is called Air Pirate, and it does come with a hat, but I have this weird feeling that I look terrible in hats, so I found some piratey hair instead hehe... 
One thing that needs to be mentioned, but is not Escape related, is my newest favourite piercing... I LOVE all the piercings that have ever been released from the mind of Sae Luan and her store Cute Poison. The Crave piercing is such a cute one. The details around the mouth, the nose ring and OH did I mention the little point like piercings under the eyes... They get lost a little in the wounds I am wearing, but keep your eyes open they will be appearing a heck of a lot more... Every new release from Cute Poison becomes my main piercing until the next one comes along hehe... 
OH AND one more thing - the last one I promise - I forgot with the main photo... The fountain behind me... It's a release from Pandemonium for Escape and all I can say about the stuff in this store is WOW! The building structures, the simple sim decorations, the brilliant textures... I am so glad I didn't miss out on the chance to sample this stuff, but what is more I didn't realise it when I was talking to the store's creator Pandy, but this is a store my Hell is obsessed with. He's bought buildings from her - which became our MC clubhouse - and our half sim is dotted with her creations... He almost fainted when I told him I'd been given some of her stuff to blog... Pandy I think you have yourself a new fangirl in the shape of my boyfriend HellBone LOL!!! The Escape's Main Gacha location, is actually right in the Pandemonium sim so you can explore these gorgeous creations in their best setting, but I cannot wait to see more from this store in the Escape events in future!

RAWR to the Dinosaurs

RAWR... That's how a Dinosaur says I love you, so I have been told! So I say a very loud RAWR to the Dinosaurs...
I used to love them when I was a kid, and it may be possibly a reason that I was so keen to get into studying Archaeology... I know that Archaeology is based on humans and Palentology is dinosaurs and animals, but somehow the love of finding Dinosaur fossils on a beach when I was growing up led me down a path that would see me finding human remains years later...
Thinking on it now, it makes sense why although they don't have wings, my love of Dragons seems to fit hehe...
So I wanted to salute the Dinosaurs and share with you a photo of me in a Dinosaur Hat LOL... I have had this hat stashed away, I believe that it was something that I picked up at a past Chater 4 event - but don't quote me on that - and the necklace is also another long gone event item and I for the life of me cant remember which but aren't they both SO CUTE! Look at how well they match!!!
The hat is a creation, which was at one time available in a gacha machine, from the minds behind the store Zenith, and the necklace - also a gacha creation - comes from Goth1c0

What is she wearing; 
Hat: Zenith - Winter Knit Dinosaur Hat (RARE) (Past Chapter 4 Item) 
Hair: Exile - Silent Wings 
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item) 
Face Wounds: (Right Eye) Corvus - Scarred Face Tattoo, (Left Cheek) Corvus - Cheek Scars, AND (Right Cheek) Little Pricks - Stapled Face Tattoo
Piercings: Cute Poison - Animus Piercing 2 
Choker: The Forge - Torc in Rust 1 
Necklace: Goth1c0 - Dino Necklace in Patchwork RARE 
Top: SAKIDE - Plaid Top

Even Hell's Demons love Horror Haute!

So my last Horror Haute post was a dead looking one, this time I went for something a little different but still kinda twisted... Oh and some interesting news to share too... The minds behind Horror Haute are in the process of creating a new event, called Escape, it's coming soon and it sounds REALLY exciting... I cannot wait to hear more!
Anyway back to the Horror Haute for this month... Now my goal with events like this is to share as much as possible, even if it wouldn't normally be something I'd choose. I love taking things and manipulating them to fit the style I want to wear, and I love playing with things that are new and different... Horror Haute this month has introduced me to some stores I'd only briefly heard mention and it's making me want to go check them out more closely... Let me share some more of those things with you!
Starting with the Horror Hautey things again, because well that's what this post is all about after all, I had a very strong over-riding urge to go Demon on this look hehe...
Maybe it was due to this awesome set of wings - if you could call it that - the Parasite Wings from The Armpit aren't flight assists but as soon as you start flying with them the wings get bigger and it looks like you are being pulled through the air by the Devil Baby... They have to be one of my favourite things this month, and I have never even heard of this store... Time for some shopping I think! I added not just one, but two pairs of awesome horns, the higher from {W&R} and the lower complete with bloody wounds was from Cain. Also, the eyes, which may not seem very clear but I can tell you are totally gorgeous, are the Horror Haute item from VerseEye
The rest of the outfit just seemed to fall into place, with a dress from SAKIDE and the perfect looking over my shoulder pose from Captivity Co Poses thanks to the Lucky Shamrock poses released for the Depraved Nation recent gacha event. 
The location was somewhere I got very lucky over too... I wanted somewhere that a Demon would feel at home... Luckily I found a place that has spaces to rent where the sim is decorated with lava rather than fields and grass - it's a little slice of Hell

What is she wearing;
Large Horns: {W&R} - Bow'd Horns (HORROR HAUTE MARCH) 
Hair: Wasabi Pills - Lory 
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item) 
Eyes: VerseEye - Tetanus Mesh Eyes (HORROR HAUTE MARCH) 
Face Wounds: (Right Eye) Corvus - Scarred Face Tattoo, (Left Cheek) Corvus - Cheek Scars, AND (Right Cheek) Little Pricks - Stapled Face Tattoo 
Small Horns: Cain - Small Horns (HORROR HAUTE MARCH) 
Piercings: (Under Eye) Cute Poison - Tsukimi Piercings, AND, Cute Poison - Animus Piercing 2 
Wings: ArmPit - The Parasite (Devil Baby) (HORROR HAUTE MARCH)
Dress: SAKIDE - Concubine Dress in Crimson 
Pose: Captivity Co Poses - Lucky Shamrock Pose

The Music took my Soul all for Horror Haute!

IT'S BAKKKKKK... Horror Haute has been away for a couple of months but it is FINALLY back! Oh Horror Haute I have missed you so LOL... That little double dose of Horror each month that kept my blog away from being full time rainbows, because we all know that without control my brain could lead me down that path! The first of two horrific looks comes complete with a little musical flair - HellBone has been DJing a lot more recently and I think that this photo really seems to sum up the way in which the music that he has been choosing has affected me. I've always said that music is an important food for the soul... Now you can see that the soul of Rudh, overflows with Music hehe... 
Discuss the photo time however, and I want to start with the Horror Haute items hehe... First up we have this gorgeous vintage - by modern standards anyway - radio from Tasty Pudding. This thing actually works as well as looking pretty... The skirt is also a Horror Haute release from Czarny Kanarek, it is their Serial Killer Micro Mini Skirt and well the blood staining just entertained me... You know about me and the blood... So looking at these two things, I had an idea come to mind, especially when I added the pose prop that I chose to use. This prop comes from Captivity Co Poses, for a new event that begins soon called RAFF, and as soon as I opened the box I knew the kind of photo I wanted to create. Something where Rudh - being the not so smart living dead girl that she is - tried to plug in the old with the new and got a bit of a shock hehe... OH and as for her death, well I blame the music... The Devil's Symphony - an old release from Hysteria that is sadly no longer available as the store was closed - just burst from her chest, showing that music is the true food for the soul hehe... 
The rest of the outfit, as always, was just a collection of goodies from my hoard hehe... electrical wire neck wraps from DRD, a Corvus shirt to match the skirts blood spatter and a few icky looking wounds later and TADA!!! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Magika - Rhyme
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item) 
Face Wounds: (Right Eye) Corvus - Scarred Face Tattoo, (Left Cheek) Corvus - Cheek Scars, AND (Right Cheek) Little Pricks - Stapled Face Tattoo 
Piercings: (Under Eye) Cute Poison - Tsukimi Piercings, AND, Cute Poison - Animus Piercing 2 
Necklaces: Death Row Designs - Post Apocalyptic Nerd Neckwraps in Yellow and Green 
Chest Tattoo & Attachment: Hysteria - The Devil's Symphony (No Longer Available!)
Shirt: Corvus - Bloody Tied Top (Past Fi*Friday Item)
Skirt: Czarny Kanarek - Serial Killer Micro Mini Skirt (HORROR HAUTE MARCH)
Leg Wounds: Hysteria - In Painful Stitches (No Longer Available!)
Pose Prop: Captivity Co Poses -  ReAmped (Available soon for the RAFF Event!) 
Radio: Tasty Pudding - Overlook Hotel (HORROR HAUTE MARCH)

Diggin' the Dancing Meme... A Gator8 Dance routine!

This weeks Monday Meme is all about dancing... Now I know that I am missing a week, because I still didn't get a chance to work on the book cover that I have had whirling through my mind since I saw last weeks Meme, but I will come back to that soon - I hope! For now we skip a week and head to the dancing Meme of this week... 
For some reason every time I think "Dancing Meme" it always sounds like "Dancing Queen" - the ABBA song - and well that just shows the craziness that takes you from point A to point B in Rudh's mind hehe... 
So anyway a pretty picture is needed lol... 
From left to right: Rozers (Bee), Eugene (Monkey), Rudh (Lion), Hell (Bull), Jade (Panda), Glides (Lobster), Black (Bunny), DG (Leopard), Mz (Pink), Nikki (Unicorn), Wolf (Monkey) and Kara (Dinosaur)! 
This group of people right here is a group that I seem to spend far too much time with LOL... They are a combined mixture of both the Gators MC and The Crazy 8's MC, - a combination that at times is referred to as the Gator8s - and you can clearly see what big scary bikers they all are LOL... 
What can I say, when you get bored and are all wearing cute fluffy Intrigue Co PJs, there is nothing better to do than dance, and for some reason on this particular day we ended up doing the Harlem Shake LOL... HellBone made a short but cute video - his first and he is very proud of it - so what better way to share it than to use it as my Meme video for this week! 
I also have a confession... I won't be answering the questions that Berry has posted with her Meme because well... I LOVE dancing but I don't own many dances lol... I am like a leach lol, I get myself added to people's dance huds whenever I go dancing! 
I do however hope you enjoy my dance for the week lol!!! 

What are they wearing; 
Pyjamas: Intrigue Co - Animal PJs
