Taking a Walk

I mentioned the TAG Gacha Event before, but I had to admit that I am counting my lucky stars with at least one of the stores in the line-up!!! 
You might have realised that I am a little obsessed with a store that pumps out so much cuteness, I have to take it all in slowly or risk fear of being made to explode in an explosion of uber cuteness! 
The fact that these items are in a gacha machine may be a good thing, I mean that way you get less of an explosion... Unless you're like me and NEED all of them!! 
I'm talking about MishMish and the freakily adorable Scawy Monsters! They will follow you around, and if they get hungry, bite you're ankles... BUT they are so easy to forgive because they are just so cute!!!   
SEE!!! I was taking a walk in the garden and was joined by a Scawy Monster that has aspirations to be Freddy Krueger when he grows up! How could I say no to that! There are so many different Monsters... I had such a hard time choosing which one to take a walk with to be honest! They range from some cute colourful ones, to known monsters and even if you're really lucky a rare unicorn or avatar! 
As I said I had such a hard time choosing who to share with you here, that I had to include the MishMish Scawy Monster Key - which includes all of the options you can win in the gacha machine - here with you! 
The only other thing that needs to be mentioned here, and which to be fair seem perfect for Halloween, are these awesome boots from REIGN! These were a past event release, but I am sure they are available at the main store, and unlike a lot of the REIGN shoes, they are made to wear with the SLINK Mid feet - so bare that in mind if you're our to buy these!

What is she wearing;
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item)
Boots: REIGN - Sidney Boots in Black (Worn with SLINK Mid Feet) (Past Event Item)
Monster: MishMish - Scawy Monsters (Available now at the TAG Gacha Event)
Pose: Image Essentials - Wall to Wall Lean 2m Pose

I could be your Whore?!

You might have noticed by now that I am a little into the macabre, gory, evil side of style in SL... In RL I a very much a jeans and t-shirts kinda girl that always wears her chunky boots and never bothers with make-up, but in SL that style is left at the log in screen and here I become a girlie, grungy living dead dolly...
Today I was feeling inspired! I was out shopping, exploring the awesome Bloody Horror Fair, and I stumbled upon a helmet that made a song pop so far into my head it's been stuck there ever since! Luckily it was one of my favourite songs at the moment!!! Now I'm going to share it with you LOL...
The Hellraiser Helmet, from Goth1c0 and found exclusively at Bloody Horror Fair, was the inspiration for this look, and it was all based on a look by In This Moment's singer - Maria Brink. Their video for the song "Whore" sees her wearing a horned helmet similar to this one, and biting her fingers drawing blood! I couldn't resist paying homage to that in my own Rudhish way!
I went down a similar gory, whoreish route to Rudhify but replicate her style by accessorising... Leaving my favourite new collar on from ginchi, I added the brand new "Gore Whore" Necklace from Cute Poison - which like the helmet can also be found at Bloody Horror Fair!
The scribblings all over my chest are something that I had noticed a while back on the marketplace and they had never really fit any of the looks that I had been going for... The Truth Tattoo, from Corvus, is a series of words scribbled across your chest ranging from Selfish to Empty and hitting a few other harsh truths in between... I hope that no one would ever agree that I am any of those things, but I guess the person that is could be a true Hellraiser?!
Just one more thing before I finish up here... Seeing as my look is loosely based on the look of Maria Brink, in a particular music video, I guess I should share it so you can see what I am talking about LOL...

What is she wearing;
Helmet: Goth1c0 - Hellraiser Helmet (Available now at Bloody Horror Fair)
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item)
Face Wounds: (Under the Eyes) Utopiah - Excessive Pain Makeup, AND,  (Forehead) REPULSE - Lobotomy Stitches Face Tattoo

TAG! The board is it!

There is a new gacha phenomenon in town that seems to be taking many SL'ers by storm... The Arcade is one of the biggest and best known shopping events that SL has to offer these days, but I think that this could be bigger, better and a little more entertaining?!
I am talking about TAG Gacha... If you love the Arcade, you will no doubt love this equally as much, and with the addition of a trail to follow, each area with a different section of a storyline and some fab prizes then I am sure you may love this even more... I know I did!
It's well planned, well executed and filled with some cute stores that will appeal to all different tastes. PLUS, if the chance of regular games of chance in the gachas wasn't enough for you, then the addition of the Mystery Tickets in which you can win super rare prizes makes it all the more exciting! I REALLY HOPE that this event comes back more, because it was fun to waste some time doing!!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!
I really enjoyed hopping around to different stores and finding some hidden gems during this event... I also, as is always with Gacha Machines, spent far too much money hehe... Some of the prizes I won seem perfect in combination, very spidery, which was lucky as maybe blending in will help me avoid the spiders in the maze?!
The Venomous Hair - who'd have ever thought that I would choose to wear blonde and pink hair? - is an Olive creation. I've not really paid much attention to the Olive hairs, but I think I am going to have to shop there and try some demos at least now! The Gemma Skin, complete with it's wounded mouth, from [theSkinnery], and the Clemmm Scope Eyes worked perfectly together to create a somewhat broken dolly effect, and the addition of the adorable little Half Deer Heart Hugger Bat made the whole outfit a lot cuter. Well as cute as a mummy spider can get as she glances back at her large Hanging Spider Egg Sac, available now from Botanical. All of these things are TAG Event Items!!! How cool is that?!
One more thing that needs a mention but isn't TAG, is the cute dress I'm wearing. This, although only the top is visible, is a dress released from Strumpettes for the past round of the Witching Hour event. It's an underbust dress with optional layers to cover the nungas, and as a spiderweb design, this one is fairly cute hehe... Just because the Witching Hour is over this month, doesn't mean you can't find it so don't feel like you've missed out, and therefore if you wanted it, please don't kill me hehe!!!  

What is she wearing;
Hair: Olive - the Venomous Hair (Available now at the TAG Gacha Event)
Skin: [theSkinnery] - Gemma in champagne 9 (Available now at the TAG Gacha Event)

Will Autumn come to the Swamp?

It's AUTUMN!!!! I love this time of year, it's the season that Halloween calls home, but it's also one of the times of year when nature feels golden! I love that still slightly warm sun, the radiant glow of the light in the reddening trees and even love the rain!
Even in SL things are heading in a much more Autumnal direction - which must be weird for people in the southern hemisphere... Must ask Jimmy - well they are, everywhere except the Gators MC Sim... HellBone wants to keep it swampy, and gator infested swamps don't have seasonal change much do they?
I did find a little corner of Autumn... Somewhere the leaves needed raking up and the dead grass could be turned into a hay bale for all the cute little animals that live near my house this winter!
While I was doing that I needed something a little more comfy to wear... Thank heavens for my new shirt dress! I saw these dresses advertised at Collabor88 from Atomic, all of the designs were cute but this one with it's "No Good, Very Bad, Always Evil" Design really fitted with the way I live my SL hehe - least I try to but others might well disagree!
I kept the rest of my look simple, as I was working in the garden, everything except for my hair and horns that is! The Hair and it's Horns accessory is called Neria, and it can be found at the Mystic Realms Fair in the Truth Booth. I know I've said it before sometimes Truth hair for me is take it or leave it... In the right outfit it can be perfect, but it can also look wrong... I know so many people who say Truth hair is their favourite and I will give it to you I love the textures and styles... This one was just what I wanted, and as they say sometimes you win but sometimes you lose hehe...

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Neria (Available now at Mystic Realms Fair)
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item)
Face Wounds: (Under the Eyes) Utopiah - Excessive Pain Makeup, AND,  (Forehead) REPULSE - Lobotomy Stitches Face Tattoo

Socks: AMERIE - Garter Socks in Black (Past Event Release)
Boots: J's - Studded Long Boots in Black
Pose: Juxtapose - Indian Summer (Past Hunt Item)

Would it be Halloween without Black Cats?

I know I've said this a fair few times already this month, and in the past few years but HALLOWEEN IS MY FAVOURITE HOLIDAY!
I've been playing dress up like crazy so far this month, and loving every minute of it too! There are so many fun and macabre things to buy out there that this living dead dolly simply doesn't have enough time to get to them all!!!
One thing that always seems to remind people of Halloween is the Black Cat. Often seen as a familiar for a witch, the black cats can be regarded as bad luck... Personally, I WANT ONE Lol!
HellBone won't let me have one, SO I made my own LOL... ME! He can't tell me no lol...
The reason I decided that I wanted to be a black kitty cat, aside from the fact that Hell can't tell me no this way, was that I wanted to wear this cute hoodie hehe... The hoodie was one that I bought a while ago from AMERIE, at a past event, and I LOVE the cute ears and large hood which you can fit lots of different hair styles into! I kept the kitty theme by wearing my favourite new collar from ginchi, but I realised that I had a bit of an issue as the hoodie was so open hehe... Pulling on a noldie but classic from Crazy, I was missing just one thing! SOCKS! Unfortunately as I pulled socks up - also from AMERIE by the way - my huge claws slipped through the thin fabric... BUGGER but hey cool enough to wear right hehe...

What is she wearing;
Hair: Magika - Such
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item)

Even Pretty Fairies Get Cold Feet!

Horror Stories are just fairy tales bottled up in a dark veneer... Many fairy tales are sparkled up anyway to make them seem prettier and more child friendly, but if you read them in their original state, it can be a blurred line to see where fairy tales and horror stories divide! This time of year the horrors seem to be taking over, but I'd been shopping - as I seem to do almost all of my free time LOL - and at a fantasy gacha event called The Gathering, I found the most amazing socks so the fairy tale in me took over hehe! 
Yes my whole look is inspired by socks LOL... Although the fact that I am a pretty fairy was totally due to my mood hehe... I wanted to be evil, I truly did but somehow ended up as a naughty and kinda cheeky looking fairy! 
Let me pull your attention back to the EPIC SOCKS!!! These are a creation of Death Row Designer - Jaimy Hancroft - and as soon as I saw them I HAD to have some! As I have said, they are available in a gacha at The Gathering, and can be won as items to make up a fairy outfit in 4 different colours. I wanted the Black and White pair, purple so isn't my usual colour BUT these do look pretty EPIC! At the same time, and from the same machine, I won these pretty wings too... They are in fact from different colour outfits, but to be honest that's part of the good of this machine, unless you want one specific you can mix and match the looks! 
The rest of the outfit just fell into place around my socks and wings... Normally I HATE working from an accessory and creating an outfit, but the wings seems to know exactly which set of lingerie I had - the Ruffle Lingerie from Bowtique by the way - that would match colour wise, and then even the Mist Flower from Distorted Dreams seemed to kamakazee throw itself at me!! It all just seemed to be so cute together, I couldn't waste an opportunity like that LOL!!! 

What is she wearing;
Hair Accessory: Distorted Dreams - Mist Flower in Blue (Past Event Release) 
Hair: taketomi - Kakoa (Past Event Release) 
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item)

Testing for Evil...

At this time of year, with the scary season upon on, you notice people seem to really get into the holiday spirit... People who normally wouldn't dream of wearing anything but the latest fashions, are doing so in a way that now makes them look dead and evil too... AND I LOVE IT! I love seeing everyone embrace their dark side and become a little macabre, especially since in a few months time we will all be getting sparkly and Christmassified!
For me personally, the macabre and slightly dead looking is a normal way of life LOL... I tend to be more dead than alive in SL, but hey that's just the way I like it...
I did want to run a few tests on people though to find out who is evil and who is just pretending - there's a lot of evil wannabes out there LOL... Thanks to this machine I have the perfect tool, and every household should have one LOL...
Maybe I should first share my results with you...
[05:59] {theosophy} Evil Tester: We have a player!
[05:59] {theosophy} Evil Tester: Rudhmellowen Laguna is Pure Evil
As you can see, the results don't lie!!! I'm just one away from the Devil, but then I'm married to a guy called Hell so to be honest it doesn't really seem surprising does it?!
I've set the machine up at the MC clubhouse, I HAD to check to see which of them was evil or not... Turns out there are far too many good angels lol... If you wanted to come try you're luck and see your own results, you're more than welcome, or you can grab your own from a gacha machine at theosophy!
I also realised, while I was messing about with poses that I LOVE this outfit! The Anawyn Outfit from SAKIDE - and available now at the Mystic Realms Fair - is gorgeous... I LOVE the hard looking leather strapped top, with the long and oh-so-seductively split skirt. I accessorised that with some adorable Ballast Pumps in Silver from Mute, and a gorgeous bracelet and armband from aisling, called Elyan, that can be won in a gacha at The Gathering
