Don't Panic, the Paranormal Investigators are here!

Finally my favourite day of the year is upon us, and I can run around and look crazy silly in whatever costume I want and no one can say anything - not that I'd listen to them if they did anyway - because it's HALLOWEEN!!! Better than Christmas - although that comes a close second - and all of the other holidays, and I will include International Talk Like A Pirate Day here too, Halloween has and always will be my favourite time of the year!
Now I bet you're expecting some weird and wonderful costume from me today... That may happen I might post something a little extra later on, but for now I did something a little normal looking hehe... Heck everyday for me is a dress up day, so maybe normal should be a Halloween costume?!
So yes... I look normal... But I had to... I just started my first day on a new job, working with a Paranormal Investigation Team called "I want to Believe". They'd been sent into a house with some very strange paranormal activity, and needed an extra pair of hands!
OK so I didn't get a job doing that, but you do get to join in an investigation during the best event of the year in SL!
I am referring to the newest - and 8th edition - of the Pulse Games Event... Don't Panic!
It's been open a while now, but I just wanted to spend time exploring it with a little less lag... Trust me waiting nearly killed me LOL...
The outfit I'm wearing is the least of my excitement in this photo, but seeing as I'm in it, I'll tell you about it LOL...
The hair is a newer creation from Magika, called Beans, which I seem to be wearing a heck of a lot hehe... Then with a pair of old jeans, I pulled on a new shirt and Aviator Jacket in a gunmetal colour from Foxes.
I wish you luck on your ghost hunting expeditions... I will never forgot what I found, and maybe by this time next wear I will have found a job elsewhere within the Pulse Games Events!

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

PINK AND PURPLE?! Am I feeling OK?

LOL, Like the title of this post suggests, THIS is a fairly rare thing for me! Pink and purple - although OK granted I do pink a little more - are two colours that rarely, if ever, become a part of my wardrobe! Somehow though, I was pulled in that direction and one are the Halloween looks, to be replaced by something that looks overly candified! Maybe this could be a Halloween costume for me though?! I mean a Zombie needs to do something different?! 
I think though, that I will blame the colour choices for this look largely on the skin and the hair!  
Starting with the hair because it's less to talk about, as I have already worn this style in a previous post, it's a SpellBound style called Velvet - this being the Aubergine colour - that can be won in the TAG Gacha machine just outside the store! 
Then yumyums... The store's items play a big part in this look - so maybe I can partially blame Iokko for the colours LOL - and it is in fact the entire reason I started thinking for this look because I wanted to create something to show off the Tiara! 
The tiara - or Daily Queen Crown - is a yumyums prize that will be available during the newest round of Enchantment. The new round starts soon, with a theme based on Rumplestiltskin - such a good and somewhat forgotten story by the way - and it will be the prize available that you could choose for their stamp card rally. It sounds complicated, but it's not... You buy any item from the Enchanted line-up and receive a stamp card, you take that card to all of the participating stores and touch the stamp to get a mark on the card, then when you have a full card you head to their prize location and you can choose whatever you like from a selection by each of the participating designers! See... Simple! 
The skin I'm wearing is also a yumyums... This version of the Stasey skin in it's Purrrty colours can be found at the Body Mod Fair 2014 - but hurry because the event ends soon! I emphasised the pink colours by adding some adorable Heart FRECKLES from MiaSnow, and some very pretty Voodoo Eyes in a Nebula Pink colour from Buzzeri, to give it that extra girlie feeling hehe... 

What is she wearing;
Tiara: yumyums - Daily Queen Crown (Available soon for Enchantment) 
Hair: SpellBound - Velvet in Aubergine (Available for now TAG Gacha)
Skin: yumyums - Stasey in Purrrty (Available now at Body Mod Fair 2014
Eyes: [Buzzeri] - Voodoo Eyes in Nebula (Past Event Release) 
Piercing: Cute Poison - Starlust Piercings 
Tattoo: MiaSnow - Heart FRECKLES (Past Group Gift)

Horror Haute Fades for October...

Horror Haute is slowly beginning to fade into the setting Autumn sun for October... Friday brings the most exciting day of the dead for the year, but it also sees the doors close on the coffins of the Horror Haute Vampires... 
I wanted to make one last salute to the blood drinkers, and another nod in the direction of the awesome and creative designers that offer up their horrific goods every month! 
As you can see, I took the sulty, and classic, route for my last trip into Vampire land... Being honest it's not somewhere that Zombie me feels really comfortable. I mean I KNOW they are undead too but they drink blood while their dinner is still alive... Least we mutilate ours to death first LOL... 
I took a walk to the Horror Haute Skybox, where you can pick up all of these horrific goodies, and bumped into a friend. He told me to tell Anna and Themis that his arms are getting tired as the pumpkin is heavy LOL... 
Though he did compliment me on my dress... The Sanguisuga Dress - from ImmateriA - is very striking... Being honest, not something that I might have chosen to buy if I saw it on the shelf. At first glance it seemed like there was too much going on, but when I really looked at it, it just seemed too beautiful not to at least play with a little... I AM SO GLAD I DID! I love the ruffled flamenco skirt, and as it's separate from the top, I will admit that I've been wearing it with a simple top too! 
There is also call for a close up today too, because I need to show off the skin and make-up a little more clearly... 
There we are, much easier to see hehe... 
I wanted a skin that seemed a little more Vampire, and a lot less my usual lol, and I got very lucky as Stargazer Creations had sent me a copy of their Horror Haute Vampire Skin Set! So many different make up choices, with and without cleavage and bloody mouths for the messy eaters lol... The eyes are also part of the set, so it is definitely well worth checking into! 
I felt though, that it was missing something... What I didn't know, but definitely SOMETHING! Helena Stringer - of The Stringer Mausoleum - proved to have that something I needed! She created the striking eye make-up I put on. Called Night Queen, it comes in a set of 9 bright colours, that will wake up any face in the dark of the night! 
One more thing to say... That's all folks... No more Horror Haute from me until next month! You don't need to wait long, it runs the last week of the month and ooooh it's going to be a good theme... Think colours, think dead things, think RAINBOWIFYING RUDH!!! YAY! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Analog Dog - Wound Up in Dark Reds
Skin & Eyes: Stargazer Creations - Horror Haute Vampire (HORROR HAUTE OCTOBER)
Make-Up: The Stringer Mausoleum - Night Queen in Mustard (HORROR HAUTE OCTOBER
Face Wounds: (Under the Eyes) Utopiah - Excessive Pain Makeup 
Piercing: Cute Poison - Starlust Piercings
Outfit, including Gloves: ImmateriA - Sanguisuga (HORROR HAUTE OCTOBER

Have I got something on my Face?

One of my favourite things that I am finding myself using a lot more than I ever thought I would at the moment is the Gator MC Halloween Maze.
If you haven't been to check it out, I would love to see you over there and would love even more to hear what you think, but I have a reason that is MUCH more selfish than wanting to see people enjoy the people I'm surrounded by's efforts. Much Much more selfish!
Basically for the whole month of October, right around the exact time I am needing plenty of horrorific locations, I have the perfect Horror Sets right in my own backyard hehe... I am, as you may have noticed, taking full advantage of the Gator Maze!
This photo for example was taken in the Butchery Horror Room - designed by two of our MC members, and built by HellBone and Jimmy - the room seemed to be the perfect back drop for one of my favourite Halloween looks I've been wearing so far!
The look started with a dress from a store I'd never heard of called Kaithleen's - but is now somewhere I need to check out for sure - that I stumbled upon at The Bloody Horror Fair. I LOVE the simple girlie, almost dungaree summery style of the dress and it's basic cotton look, that has been soaked in blood! I knew that I wanted to cover myself in blood but HOW?
Simple! I discovered an event called The Unique Varied Event that was hosting a round themed on the horror of the moment... Then I stumbled upon a store I barely knew called BabyDoll... They had some AWESOME wounding specially for the event, a Bloody Blindfold and even a new piercing for me called Ouch - and yes that is a knife in my face!
Yay I thought, I could coat myself in blood from Ama... The favourite, and possibly best bloody splatter I could have bought hehe...
I finished the look off by wrapping some barbed wire around my feet and calling them shoes. The Blight Heels from Razor, are my new painful shoes of choice!!

Hair: Magika - Beans

Absolutely Starving

Ever have that feeling of being absolutely starving and not being able to do anything about it?!
Today at work, sat in the office I opened this post, ready to start writing something and WOW I find myself feeling absolutely starving, which actually works very well with the photo I've chosen LOL...
The reason I am so starving in my office is all thanks to my wonderful colleagues, who at 10AM were eating ramen... All the doors and windows were closed, and the heating was on as they all found it cold, so I was left sitting a warm room that smelt of food!!! Never a good combination when you're already sleepy and hungry LOL...
Still it kinda fits with my new Horror Haute Vampire look...
Walking through the woods, I stumbled upon some new areas... I thought I knew the swamp like the back of my hand, but these places seemed to appear from the mist! The Master of the Night's Crypt creaked and groaned as the gates swung open inviting little vampire me inside, whilst his Dark Forest Library offered a chance for me to take a peek in a myriad of historic tomes - both of these things are available now from Howling Asylum for Horror Haute by the way - and each of them seemed so welcoming.
The outfit itself was one that I had been wearing for a few days, and I thought I looked pretty cute - some said hot and that could just be the combination of the LBD and thigh high boots?! - but with just a simple addition it became the look of a ravenously hungry vampire!
The dress, an event release from the store Haste, is definitely my current favourite LBD - or Little Black Dress to those who don't know the acronym - and when teamed with my all time favourite BAX Regency Boots it creates a sexy but simple look... I being slightly random of course had to Rudhify it, and make it a little kookier! I was meant to be undead after all, so with the addition of a few strategically placed wounds, and a Zombitch Necklace - that you can pick up from Love Zombie - the look was complete!!
Now remember I mentioned before that due to the colleagues keeping it warm and making lots of food smells whilst I was starving... WELL... The little Vampire in me needed to eat, and she is a Messy Eater LOL. The Messy Eater bloody mouth make-ups come in three different styles, each getting more and more bloody from SongBird for the October round of Horror Haute...
Wow I'm on a roll with Horror Haute... There's still yet more to come too hehe...

Hair: Truth - Neria (Available now at Mystic Realms Fair)
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item)

Did you just say No?!

I have Horror Haute on the brain at the moment, purely and simply because there is so much good stuff within the line-up it's hard not too... That and I've been wracking my brain for their blogging co-ordination - but that's a story which I will have to keep to myself lol...
The theme this month, as I have said before, is Vampires... Being a Living Dead of the Zombie variety in my day to day SL, somehow becoming a vampire was a bit like shedding a skin and slipping into another dead one LOL - which actually sounds pretty gross, but as it's Halloween this week maybe I can get away with it?!
The weird thing is though, for some reason I just didnt want to go all out creepy looking, classic pale vampire... I tried to modernise the vampire look without going all Twilight, whilst still keeping my kookie style intact... I think I managed LOL!!!
Incorporating Horror Haute into the outfit I was wearing seemed the best idea, and to do that I just picked out - from the HUGE collection, most of which you can see in my investigative post previously hehe - a cute shade of black Czarny Kanarek lipstick, you'll have to excuse the traces of my lunch however.
The rest of my outfit is non-Horror Haute, but I was wearing it around at home and liked it enough to throw together what could be called a look of the day post! The hair, complete with it's HUGE bow, is a TAG Gacha release from SpellBound, available in many colours, I was lucky enough to win the white version! The outfit itself comprised of an old, but one of my favourites, pair of leggings from Sn@tch, and a brand new jacket from Razor called Cataclysm Tri-Jacket. I fell in love with this jacket as soon as I spotted it, it's biased cut, high-necked, has a lack of a back, but it just called to the biker chick in me and so long as I don't fall off and therefore can avoid the road rash, it will look perfect on the back of a bike!!
Lastly the pose I wanted to share is an older one but still great to use from elephante poses! Voodoo is something that although associated with this time of year, has no real Halloween connotations, does it?! I mean OK I know Voodoo is sometimes seen as a kind of evil, torture, especially with things like Voodoo Dolls, but Halloween does seem to have almost adopted the idea for it's own evil uses hehe...

What is she wearing;
Hair: SpellBound - Velvet (Available now for TAG Gacha)
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item)
Face Wounds: (Under the Eyes) Utopiah - Excessive Pain Makeup
Piercing: Cute Poison - Starlust Piercings
Lipstick: Czarny Kanarek - Vampire Lips (HORROR HAUTE OCTOBER)
Top: Razor - Cataclysm Tri-Jacket (Past Event Release)
Ring: Cute Poison - Bitch Ring in Black
Leggings: Sn@tch - Bomber Latex Pants in White
Pose & Prop: elephante poses - Voodoo Child #2

Mirror, Mirror, Take Control...

Mirror, Mirror, Take control, Of my Living Dead Girl Soul...
Pageant winner as you see, Have your evil way with me...
Mists within you have the power, In the darkest, haunting hour...
I am yours now, Heart and soul, Mirror Mirror, Take Control.
I got randomly creative with this one... I think it was a mixture of the prop, the costume and the Halloween feeling in the air! I also got a little saucy with it... Sorry if it offends anyone, but I wanted to use that spirit in the mirror in a depraved kind of way, and make it seem like it had taken control of the dead beauty pageant winner that had arisen from her slumber!
The mirror and its heap of skulls is a creation from ImmateriA. It had been given up as a hunt prize within the Gator Maze, but the hunt is now over and all of the prizes will be returned to their designer owners! Thank you to those people that donated gifts for the hunt, we hope that you had some interest from new shoppers!
The outfit was one of my "costumes" - although I wore it just because I liked it hehe - but it did cause a bit of a stir, as well I was mostly naked!
The most obvious part of this look has to be the wounding! I mean you really cannot miss the fact that I have been cut up and my skin has been removed in large chunks! Thanks to F'N'HawT and it's weird sense of Skin Deep Fashion, The Beauty Pageant - running until November 1st - will never be the same again LOL... The Zombie Queen Sash was a prize worthy of a winner, from the store STATIC... To finish the look I added a pair of specially made Collabor88 Prudence Pumps from Noodles... These skin pumps are perfect for walking the stage and wowing the Zombie judges!!!
