Happy New Year

2012 is on it's way out... In many parts of the world it has been and gone, and soon it will leave us here in Holland. 
I, unfortunately, will be spending time at home on my own this evening when the midnight hour rolls around - Hell has to work and so I get left to hide from the fireworks with my whiny but adorable Izzywhizz... I plan on putting my feet up with a nice glass of something yummy - might even have some bubbly wine left over from Christmas - some loud music and my awesome friends that are around in SL, because they like me have no where better to be LOL... There will be some of you around right? Anyone? No...? Though I guess if there is no one around I could improvise a little party of sorts, maybe make one out of teddy bears or something LOL... 
Dressed to the nines in one of my favourite rainbow dresses from Candy Mountain, with a large glass of something fairly strong and my replacement for Hell - yes that would be the cuddly rooster lol - I raise a glass to everyone whose ever had the pleasure of crossing my path... 
Good Luck to you all in 2013, no matter who you are or how our paths crossed - whether it was good or bad, whether you are still around with me or not - I hope you have a very Happy New Year and hope that it brings you all the luck and happiness you deserve! Whatever happens in 2013 remember to smile...

52WOCC2... My Favourites!

Last year on the closing of the 52 Weeks of Colour Challenge, Luna asked us to compile a collage of our personal favourites from the run of colours we had that year... Well it hasn't been announced this year as something that would be a great way to finish off the challenge, but I thought it's Sunday, why not give it a go... I'm missing the colour challenge already can you tell??
It was pretty tough to pick my favourites, and I decided to limit the number that I chose to 9...There are reasons for each of these, and it could get long winded as a blog post but let me just give a brief idea as to why I chose each one LOL...
The Mermaid (top left - week 30) was something of a breakthrough for me in regards to the way I take my photos in SL, it was a happy mistake but I remember spending a good deal of time leaving Rudh hanging on a pose ball upside down threatening HellBone that if he touched my PC and my cam moved I would be making him sleep outside with the chickens LOL! The "Dandy Lion" (week 9) was me being silly and playing around with the colour name, plus it allowed me to show off an obsession of mine... INTRIGUE CO lol... My date with HellBone (week 21) was Hell's first and only appearence in the challenge, and for those readers who are interested, we managed to get glue that would stick his head back on LOL! A clown (week 28) that I could actually enjoy, though this was my second "clown" in the challenge this was the prettier of the two - that and it didn't actually freak me out. The Fairy (week 39) in me played a lot this time in the challenge, normally I keep my fairy self tied up in a hidden part of my brain, but she is so much fun to pay with she might have to come out more often. NAKED RUDH (week 41) definitely got me a lot of comments, not all of them on the blog, and for some reason the boys all said I was wearing too much LOL! Fledge hung me for the icky Barley Corn colour (week 47), mind you it seems as though I might have already been dead, and then a couple of weeks later I made a tribute to my murderous big sister when Gold came up (week 50). 
I think my favourite look of them all has to have been the one I created for Week 49's Cotton Candy Colour... SHOCK HORROR RIGHT? I love a pink outfit as my favourite, but this outfit just makes me smile every time I see it - a cotton candy superhero?!
I've linked to all the individual posts if you wanted to know what I am wearing in any of these looks, but I just wanted to say again to everyone involved in the colour challenge - be you Luna or one of the kick-butt Colour Bloggerettes - THANK YOU, it's been a brilliant ride and I've loved every minute of being on it with you all!

It may never have happened...

Once upon a time, this photo would never have come into existence... This person and I had a fair amount of trouble communicating... In fact I was so maddened by her that I would simply let someone else handle the issues that needed discussing, and carry on doing my own thing. 
Soph - or Qopi, whatever it is people are meant to call you these days lol - and I never always saw eye to eye, and working for Seraphim we sometimes - make that all the time - sent each other some insanely mixed signals. 
I was overworking myself, not giving myself enough time to step back and breathe. I barely saw my SL family and spent far too long dedicating my time to something that sucked all the energy out of me. Since leaving I've become a better blogger for my personal journal space, as well as having time to enjoy my SL for the things I want to do... One of them was making things right with Soph!
She and I had discussed working on a photo together for a while, it just seemed to take us forever to get to this point in actually having done it! In fact, she pulled me over to shoot me LOL - she held me at gunpoint till I was dressed LOL... What surprised me though is that Soph is normally the queen of throwing random things on I would never think about putting together to make an outfit, and yet when I turned up she looked fairly demure, a little normal and I was slightly weirded out... Though I will say I WANT HER NECKLACE!!!
Here's to moving forward in 2013 Soph! 

What is she wearing; 
Hair: Ploom: Fluster 
Skin: Ploom - Maia in Smoke Honey 
Glasses: A&A - Moody Mooners in Sad Purple 
Piercing: Cute Poison - Beauty Destroyed 
Necklace: [EY:NO] - Filigran String Necklace 
Dress: Candy Mountain - Tea Dress in Unicorn 
(F.Y.I - At the moment I couldn't tell you where the things Soph is wearing come from... Least not 100% accurately, and she provided the poses, but if you want to know I will ask her for you!)

The Day After Christmas!

Today is one of my favourite days of the year... The day after all the Christmas festivities, a time I usually spend vegging out on the sofa doing not much of anything! 
Every year - for me personally - I spend so long running around trying to make everything perfect... Sorting all the decorations, buying and wrapping a mountain of Christmas presents, cooking a huge Christmas dinner and then feeling totally bloated after eating it - not to mention completely cleaning the entire house from top to bottom. Normally Christmas Day and Boxing Day - the name given to the December 26th in the UK - pass in a blur of family visits, eating and present unwrapping, so when the 27th comes, it has always been regarded as a total rest day for me... A tradition set in place by my mum who will always lay zombiefied on the sofa watching soppy old movies!
I love Christmas, but I'm glad I can now sit back and play with my new toys in peace hehe... I know that some people had a different Christmas than what they expected but no matter what happened, I hope you had a good one that made you smile!

A Horror Haute Magical Mystery...

The thing with Horror Haute is that it always brings out the dead girl in me... No matter what is available from the participating designers, somehow my inner dead girl is called to the surface and the cute kawaii rainbow girl is forced way down deep and buried!
While I was wandering around the North Pole Village and Santa's Workshop I came across a place where I wanted to take some photos... The Ice Caves are gorgeous, a labyrinth of snow, ice and crystals, drawing people inside with their tinkling music and sparkles.
Although I was a little dead girl, even I couldn't resist the magic...
Not feeling the cold - being dead her skin is freezing cold anyway - she ventured deeper and deeper into the ice caves, following the musical sparkles that danced along in front of her. 
She heard a gentle whispering in her ear, a voice saying "Welcome to my magical world living dead girl" (I know Living Dead Girl is a Rob Zombie song, it's one of my favourites but technically that's what Rudh is sometimes LOL!!)... She turned to see who the whispery voice belonged to... Santa? Rudolph? That Snowman from the cartoon? Yet she was surprised to see a sheer wall of ice, until her eye caught something pretty and blue resting on some ice crystals... A hat decorated with snow... Mr.Frost perhaps? Or maybe none of the above?

What is she wearing;
Hair: Ploom - Gigi (Available at 50% off for the 12 Days of Christmas Deals)
Skin: AKA - Epidemic Skin
Lipstick: Love Zombie - Sinful Lips
Piercing: Cute Poison - Beauty Destroyed
Necklace: Maxi Gossamer - Banshee Skull Heart Necklace

Skirt: {Psycho.Byts} - mini-skirt in Bones
Boots: Ten"10 - Megas Boots
Hat: CoLLisions - As Winter Comes Top Hat (HORROR HAUTE DECEMBER)
Pose: WetCat - Winter Warmth 1

Really Scary Teddy!

Sometimes you get moments that you simply cannot resist sharing... I had one of those moments recently and only remembered it when I was looking through the photos I had saved on my hard drive! 
I've always loved one particular toy that I bought AGES ago, he's sat quiet in the wendy house minding his own business - a little like a grandfather to all the other toys that litter the place - but he had an update and I remembered how much fun he can be. Teddy Scare is brilliant!
Zombie Santa is still running around in our garden, I wonder how long it will be until he goes up in a puff of smoke - I'm secretly hoping that Dean and Sam Winchester will appear like they did in the Very Supernatural Christmas Episode, but then I'm kinda not too as inside that Zombie Santa, Hell is hiding somewhere hehe...

What is she wearing;
Hair: Magika - Stumble
Skin: Ploom - Maia in Smoke Honey
Make-Up: [mock] - Tainted Tears of Love

52WOCC2 - Week 52

Where has the year gone?? Can anyone tell me because seriously it feels a little like it has gone past in the blink of an eye... 
This week is the last colour challenge photo from the challenge hosted by the Colourful Leader - Miss Luna Jubilee - and this for me completes 2 full years of colour challenging. Back when the colour challenge originally started my blog was still somewhat new, and I needed some juice to get my blogging mojo kick started, I was lucky enough to discover this awesome challenge and have since been addicted to getting my challenging fill of rainbow goodness! It has kept me blogging week after week, and has definitely helped me in learning more about photography and Photoshop than I ever would have learnt without it - making me achieve a set of skills I never would imagine I could have. I'm still learning but if it hadn't been for the colour challenge I might have gotten bored of blogging long ago! 
I've also met some of the most amazingly, brilliantly talented people by being involved in the colour challenge group... It's brought together a collection of people from all different walks of SL and I doubt I'd have met any of you if it hadn't been for the challenge. So BIG HUGS to all the Colour Challengers. Miss Luna, Thank you SO MUCH for being our leader for the last two long years, helping to expand our wardrobes, skills and use of colours... I don't know how you coped hehe!!!
THE LAST WEEK - WEEK 52 - AMAZON
Week 52: I shed a little tear or three!
What is she wearing;
Hair: Ploom - Dawn (Available at 50% off for the 12 Days of Christmas Deals) 
Skin: Ploom - Maia in Smoke Honey 
Eyes: IKON - Horizon Eyes in Dark Verdigris 
Eyelashes: LeLutka - 2011 lashes/curl 
Piercing: Cute Poison - Beauty Destroyed

YES I cheated on the outfit, I couldn't find anything in green and I realised that my gorgeous IKON eyes matched the colour this week perfectly I had to do a little close-up. I doubt I'll be wearing much green anymore, it wasn't really my colour before the challenge and it's not one I will admit to having fallen in love with... Other colours I did, green I most certainly did not - although I prefer it to purple LOL... 
I'll see you around my fellow colour bloggerettes... My IM is always open for you guys! Please don't be strangers, and I'll be watching your blogs! Missing you guys already... Happy Christmas XXXXX

Horror Haute in Santa's Workshop

Two awesome bits of information that MUST be shared... HORROR HAUTE HAS STARTED FOR DECEMBER!!!! The first bit of information is such an important point, a girl cannot resist shouting from the rooftops about it. The event is normally a week long event, running for the last week of the month, but this time around due to the holidays the event runs from now until the 31st. 
The second thing that must be shared is this place I randomly stumbled upon, which really makes you feel Christmassy! 
Rudh pulled on a brand new outfit, for sale from Corvus for the Horror Haute Event... A pretty little outfit featuring Emily Strange - someone I always connected with in RL due to the sharing of a name hehe - grabbed her skeleton kitty and went for a walk around this awesome location... 
The little Goth Girl may look a tiny bit out of place in this setting, but she had to visit for a number of reasons. She needed to check she was on the nice list, and to make sure - as the picture shows - that she let the elves know that she didn't want the blue pretty dolly... She HAD to have the one with skull and cross bones all over it... HAD TO!!! 
The location is BRILLIANT, such a fun way to get into that festive feeling. The creators of the sim have really put a lot of work into creating this place. The North Pole Village & Santa's Workshop is so  adorable - as well as Santa's own workshop filled with toy makers, present wrappers, cookie makers and chocolate, there is also a stable to see the reindeer and post offices for letters to Santa amongst other things! SO worth a visit!

It Wasn't Me! Honest...

She's done it again, Miss Mayala Loon - the one and only Loonatic - sent me an offline a couple of days ago requesting that her favourite actress be available for filming at some point this week. Well the long list of favourite actresses weren't available so she got stuck with me... I was told to turn up in whatever I was wearing, I could even bring my new bunny friend that I bought yesterday from Silent Sparrow... I tentatively headed over to the movie set...
Ladies and Gentlemen... I am proud to present - MAYA CALENDAR - a Loonatic Movie!
I didn't mean to push the button, I swear! But when there is a label saying 'Do Not Push' I can't help myself! It's like a moth to a flame... I am not trying to be naughty especially this close to Christmas when I have to stay on Santa's Nice List, yet I couldn't help myself... So I blame Mayala for having the button with the label there in the first place LOL...
I had to share with you the cute outfit that I was wearing when I blew up the world... I love this outfit, it's comfy, casual but still really cute! Least I think so hehe...

Hair: Magika - Stumble

HAPPY CHRISTMAS!

Well today is the 21st of December 2012... WE MADE IT!!! The Mayans were wrong and now I am resisting the urge to blow raspberries at them and say 'nernerninerner' - though knowing my luck that would land me in some bad luck or something so I'll restrain myself. 
I will admit that I thought I might have been a game over yesterday, Hell has been ill with suspected food poisoning. Yet what I want to know is HOW did I end up suffering the same symptoms all day yesterday even though I didn't eat the same stuff and he was on the mend?
Yet as we are in the End of the World Day, I feel it's safe to say... HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! I know it's still 4 days yet - including today - but why not say it a little early, I doubt I'll be blogging on the day itself hehe!!! 
So by now you might have realised that Hell and I are a little different LOL, we didn't want a cutesy couple posing by a Christmas tree card and when he bought his new Zombie Santa Avatar from Little Britain Designs, it kinda sealed the deal as to what we would be wearing hehe... I made up my look out of things that I had in my inventory, but as I was browsing through my hoard I found this pose from PNP of the snow mound from The Nightmare Before Christmas... YAY ZOMBIES ON A SNOW MOUND!!!
I felt a little close up was necessary to show us in a bit more detail, but now it's time for some Christmas Music! Every year people listen to the same set of songs... I love the old ones that we would put on every year... But I think this new Christmas song sung by Geraldine McQueen (aka Peter Kay) has to be my new favourite! So enjoy the song and Merry Christmas everyone!!! 

What are they wearing;
Hair: Deviant Kitties - Wynter Lights (No Longer Available)

Together For Sway!

The big events seem to be pouring in at the moment, there is a lot going on and so much fun to be had by everyone that you'd think it was getting close to Christmas or something hehe... 
I've been getting a bit of a Christmas overload recently and have been trying to do things that aren't related to Christmas at all just for a little respite - of course I'm doing the Christmassy stuff too but a girl needs a little variety or she might implode! Too much sugary sweet Christmas in her mind causes implosion rather than explosion don't ya know?
Together for Sway is an event that I simply couldn't afford to miss out on covering - selfish reason I know but as Hell is involved as a designer I couldn't miss the opportunity to promote him! 
This event is for a brilliant cause, and like I've said before, some people are a bit iffy about "charity" events - they are never sure if the event is genuine or not and I don't blame them after some of the stories that you hear. Yet Sway's is a store I personally love for all household furnishings, it's not only the big furniture either, Sway makes a lot of gorgeous decor - perfect for the wendy house! When I heard all the details behind the cause of this event, I knew we had to try and help her - to cut a long story short, Sway Dench has to have some medical treatment, which will keep her out of action for a little while and therefore a collection of designers have gotten behind the cause to help her out of a tight spot! There are plenty of details on the Together for Sway blog so I won't linger on the workings of the event, but there are a few things I love that I wanted to share with you... 
Three things from the event to show today... The Pretty Angels come as a set of three from Sway's, they are available in three colours and each set includes all three sizes in blond or brunette - everyone knows red heads have fiery tempers and therefore couldn't be angelic hehe, or maybe that's just me? The blond version reminds me of my RL little sister when she was in nativity plays at playschool - she used to have blond curly ringlets back then before the colour darkened... The KOSH Necklace and Ring Set - called NODA - is gorgeous. It comes with a ring and necklaces on two different attachment points, and in Male and Female sizes.
Then of course there is the bike... This is the Woody Chopper from Hogs and Cart Wheels - owned by my very own HellBone. This is a 28 prim vehicle built for 2, customised with real chainsaw sounds, this vehicle is the fastest wooden bike ever created, and it's yours for 200L with 100% of the proceeds going to help Sway!
There's lots to choose from, for every taste, so during all your hopping around at the events, make sure that this is one of the places that you check out! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Ploom - Dawn (Available at a discount in the 12 days of Christmas Specials around the tree!) Skin: Ploom - Maia in Smoke Honey 
Glasses: Epic - Mesh Checkered Nerd Glasses 
Choker: {Psycho.Byts} - Black Choker + Studs 
Necklace & Ring: KOSH - NODA Set (Available now at Together for Sway
Dress: SAKIDE - Fashion Skull Dresses 
Tights: RONSEM - Ripped Leggings in black 
Boots: J's - Studded Long Boots

52WOCC2 - Week 51

*sobs* NOOOOOO IT'S ALMOST OVERRRRRRR! *sniffs* Must control myself until next week when we hit the big 52... MUST BE STRONG!!! 
Anyway this week, the colour is a bright and fun festive shade, but as much as the idea of Christmas drew me in I really, really wanted to avoid something Christmassy. I often feel over loaded on Christmas, as much as I love it, but everywhere is filled with the overly Christmas vibe and sometimes it gets a little overbearing. SO, I went and did something a little crazy in my usual Rudh way hehe... 
When I was a kid I LOVED to read Where's Wally Books. I would read them once and then leave them for a while before looking at them again, and I had the entire collection. My sister drew in them once, putting circles around the things you had to search for... OH Dear, there was war in our house that day! 
Still I found a shirt in my inventory and this idea was spawned... With a little digging I created the PERFECT red look for this week hehe... 
Week 51 - Madder Lake Deep 
Week 51: Where's Rudh?
What is she wearing; 
Hair: CONCRETE FLOWERS - Sarson's Bobble Hat (No Longer Available!)
Skin: Ploom - Maia in Smoke Honey 

Eyes: IKON - Horizon Eyes in Dark Verdigris 
Glasses: Acid & Mala - Falling off face Glasses 
Piercing: Cute Poison - Beauty Destroyed 
Necklace: KOSH - Infinity Necklace 
Top: Somnia - Striped Queen in Halloween White 
Jeans: AlterEgo - Another Round Jeans 
Shoes:{katatonic} - Espadrilles in coral (THANKS ELIZA FOR THE LOVELY GIFT!) 
Pose Prop: Y&R - Walking Stick

Now I know the picture above isn't really in the spirit of Where's Wally? So I made something a little special in the spirit of Christmas... A little present... Where's Rudh? 
(Just a little note: The picture is fairly small, but if you click it then you will see it full sized! Try to find me!!!!) 
Next Week - Unreleased (Luna is keeping it a secret until next week!) 

A Lamp*Light Portal

Miss AliceAnn Alter seems to send me things in HUGE batches, it's always like Christmas getting things from her. Lamp*Light is stuffed full of adorably cute, brightly fun clothing that always brings a smile to my face and definitely has a huge influence on the rainbow, kawaii side of my brain. 
She got very excited about a particular outfit recently, that was something she'd created as a kind of SL homage to one of her favourite games, and so for her I had to try and think of some way of showing off such an adorable outfit in the right setting. 
The game in question is Portal - I'll admit I'd NEVER heard of it, but then again I am not much of a game geek and when my friends normally discuss games the understanding part of my brain normally goes to sleep - yet the Aperture Tech uniform that Alice created was super cute! I needed to do some research... The outfit comes with a shirt, skirt and lanyard worn in the photo, but it also has shoes, socks, glasses and a bra giving you lots of choices in how to wear the outfit!
I eventually found a suitable place to get the photo I wanted... Somewhere science lab style, with lots of computers and microscopes and well... Sciency! I had a bit of a search on my hands, the location I took this photo appears to be a bit on the risque side and very adult in some of the toys that are laying around, but the bank of computers was perfect for the look I wanted, and hey if you are into playing in a science lab then check out Tai Yong Laboratories...
All I need now is one of those magic zappy hand gun thingies, to get me through the walls and stuff and I'm golden... Though if I used that for evil then I'd be people's worst nightmare... Imagine the things you could do with a weapon like that *cackles evilly before coughing*

Zombies at Christmas

Gosh this week I have been so busy, feeling rushed off my feet, and not having time to sit and relax much let alone think about getting any blogging done. It doesn't even have anything to do with Christmas, so I can't blame that... I've just been working ALL WEEK - full time work is hard!
Yet luckily today has been a little easier, and I have had some time to play with photos that are amassing in my hard-drive. 
I like many people in SL am beginning to set my little house up for Christmas - I know I am a little later than a lot of people, I haven't started in RL but I don't want to get bored of things so I leave it till the last minute LOL - yet I've begun digging through my hoard looking for some cute and random Christmas decor. As I was doing that I got myself all dressed up for Christmas, the theme Hell and I are going for this year is Zombies at Christmas LOL... 
So Zombie Rudh has collected a few little presents for the people she loves this year, tokens of her love... She sat with her darling reindeer friends and grabbed some pretty ribbon, packing the gifts up and knotting the bow...  Writing the labels - HellBone, Fledge, the terrible twosome, oh my gosh the list goes on. She realised a little too late that Sellotape and zombie thumbs don't work well together and some of the gifts for her friends have wrapping, bows and zombie skin - what an interesting present decor! 
Yet from the corner of her eye she spied a movement in the garden behind her... Who was there? She thought she was alone... 
ZOMBIE SANTA IS THAT YOU... In the distance looming out of the mist in the garden, a lone zombie in red with a sack on his back sitting astride a rotting reindeer...ZOMBIE SANTA!!!!

Hair: Deviant Kitties - Wynter Lights (No Longer Available)

52WOCC2 - Week 50

Week 50 already, it really doesn't feel like long ago that we were all pining for a new round of colour to start and then when it did everyone seemed to be over the moon. Still now for those of us that are still hanging on in there, the end is in sight... Not long now, only two weeks left... I'm not gonna get overly excited about that yet, but prepare yourself for a sad but excited Rudh lol... 
Onto this week and time for something a little special... 
The colour this week has a massive amount of significance for me, not only in my SL, but in my RL too... Fledge is the Gold Dragon Queen, and for as long as I can remember in SL I have known her, being adopted after a very short time as her little sister - not to mention instantly gaining a royal title - I found myself part of a large and rather interesting family of furries, dragons and fantasy beings. 
It wasn't long before we developed a back story, something to tell people, a how we are related - after all a dragon and a human being sisters. 
Our mother was beautiful, she also had a bit of a secret... She had the ability to shape-shift into any form she wished to be, at first this was problematic, but later she began to use the shifting to her advantage. When she was in her teens, she began using her powers for evil - though some might say it was good hehe - to seduce men, changing herself to match the form of any male she found attractive. One of her conquests was a male dragon - I forget his description, I never met him, although Fledge may well be able to tell you - yet soon our mother laid the most beautiful egg. An egg like you have never seen - pale gold with intricate Gold filigree work decorating the luminescent shell. The daughter that broke free from this egg was to be a powerful, exotic and flamboyant dragoness, with her mother's powers of shape shifting and a penchant for shiny things. Although it wasn't long before her mother was itching for a new conquest, enter a beautiful male fae with raven hair and eyes the colour of the forest, he drew our mothers attention like a moth to a flame. Soon I was born and our mother moved on, leaving me with her uncanny ability to seduce men. I wasn't lucky like Fledge to have our mother's ability to shape-shift, although I am pretty adept at hiding my fae form behind a human facade... Though the sad story of two abandoned daughters - one dragon and one fae - does have a happy ending. The elder of the siblings became the Gold Dragon Queen, aided by her close friend and devoted little sister. Fledhyris defended her sister, toasting any drama llamas that caused her pain, Rudhmellowen - although lacking in toasting ability - stood by her big sister and collected the body parts of the fallen enemies. Funnily enough she has amassed quite a collection and yet the enemies keep coming - though little princess Rudh still needs a nose for her collection... Would anyone care to mess with the sisters in the spirit of Christmas?

Stars in their Eyes... Tonight I'm gonna be...

When I was younger, in the UK, every Saturday evening my parents, sister and I would sit down with a family meal in front of the television... Depending on what was on it could be any number of game shows or silly entertainment - I'm suddenly reminded of Noel's House Party and Mr Blobby as I write this *shudders* - but one of the shows that I really thought was good fun was Stars in their Eyes. 
The basis of the show was that it was a competition between members of the public, who would be transformed into a singer and then have to perform like that person. It was always funny in our house to guess who people would be, and I spent hours laughing at my dad who would always come up with the silliest suggestions and then try to sing like his suggestion! 
So anyway, a kinda side point from what I was going to say but it was brought to my mind, due to the fact that the latest model I had was dressed in an avatar of a special character from one of the legendary rock bands of the UK. 
My long time friend Nick and I got to hang out for the first time in forever yesterday - there are a number of things that stop us hanging out but it was awesome to be able to get the chance to see him in the flesh so to speak. It was so much fun to have him around, makes me realise just how much I miss having the chance to hang out with him - even though we did nothing. 
I showed him the garden, he showed me his new avatars from Little Britain Designs. I couldn't resist letting my inner bossy pants take over and get him to pose, it's not every day you get to photograph a rock legend. 
Eddie is - as some might call him - a mascot of the band Iron Maiden. For over 30 years he has graced every single or album cover of the band and has become a well known icon in his own right within the rock music scene! I wanted to create a photo that showed off the brilliant avatar, which definitely brings Eddie to life in SL. Little Britain do seem to have some brilliant avatars - there are a couple which I wouldn't recommend though this is personal preference, I am not keen on the avatars that are celebrity based, but the fantasy character avatars are brilliant. Hell has a few, but on seeing Nick as Eddie for the first time I was actually pretty blown away by just how good he looked! Well... good might be the wrong word, he looks a bit worse for wear LOL! 
Was good to see you Nick, thank you for being so patient as I spent time faffing about poses and locations LOL... *hugs* It's always good to see you! 
Now though, I think I might have to head on over to Little Britain for some of their awesome New Rock Style boots LOL!!!! 

What is he wearing; 
Avatar: Little Britain Designs - Eddie Trooper
Pose: Embody - Slasher 2

3 Whole Years...

Time flies... SL seems to make it worse! It's been over 6 years that I have been with Rudh in SL, almost as long that I have been sisters with Fledge and as of yesterday, 3 years that Hell and I have been a couple.
Dating in SL seems to be like something that I did an eternity ago now, I spent all my time in clubs meeting new and interesting people, getting to know them and then after a while realising that they were just someone I wasn't compatible with. At the time, and I guess without knowing it, I used the way that guys acted around my SL family as a means of a test - we weren't the most conventional of families and there were some cracking conversations to be had which ultimately resulted in a lack of repeat dates for me LOL - yet there was one guy to crack through that and remain with me for the long haul... HellBone!
Us a year or so ago... Such an old looking photo compared to my recent photos.
We started out as friends, working together in a club that was more than a little rubbish - he was the DJ and I his hostess - and a strong friendship was formed. Hell was going through some very tough times and needed some support, which he wasn't getting from his then SL girlfriend or anyone else for that matter, so me being super awesome (LOL) I spent hours sitting around talking with him, letting him vent his frustrations. After a a couple of months he mentioned about going to see Marilyn Manson - we'd discussed music, he knew I'd be jealous - and asked me if I would be at all interested in his spare ticket... HECK YEAH I was - nervous about coming to Holland and meeting Hell, but I thought as friends what harm could it do - I can be so neive thinking back on it. I mean people are anonymous online - I'd heard him talking about his problems sure, but people can and do lie!
Still I came over, met him, explored Amsterdam and went to a gig,  leaving Holland not just with some awesome memories, but also with a Dutch Boyfriend. What a souvenier huh? I think a T-Shirt might have been easier to handle - not as much fun, but easier LOL!
Anyway, yesterday was our anniversary, and we got to celebrate it in a weird deja vu ish way... Marilyn Manson was over again on tour with Rob Zombie. IT WAS THE BEST GIG WE'VE BEEN TO IN A LONG TIME!
OH AND, Shiny Bubble - our eldest heap of trouble - sent me a message for us both, it made me cry and I wanted to share something she said. Along with telling us that she loved us and that we'd changed her life for the better just by being her "parents", she included a quote that I feel would be a good life philosophy!
"When you look ahead to the future or look back at how things used to be, don't forget to look beside you, because that's where you'll find the one that will always be there, loving you with all their heart."
Thank you Shinypants! Hellywelly, there is no way that I can thank you - we've been through some tough times in the last 3 years, but we've come through - the grass is greener on this side of the fence, let's stay here and face the world together!

(Just to let you know, I am not totally sure what I am wearing in this photo, let alone Hell's outfit details... I will dig out details if people want them, please don't hesitate to ask!)

52WOCC2 - Week 49

I cannot quite believe that we only have 4 weeks of colour to go now... It seems that as always people have drifted away and found other projects, but personally I am astonished that I have come this far. The first round was difficult enough, but some of this colour set has been nigh on impossible as colours seem to blend from week to week, or are totally not visible in the warehouse that is my wardrobe! I've seen myself grow as a photographer and I feel that although I am not quiet where I want to be in regards to photography, I am slowly getting there... I owe a lot to this challenge, and whether or not Luna does it again, I know that without it I might not have carried on blogging, gained so many new skills or met so many amazing, creative and talented people! I'm gonna stop being soppy, for now... On with this weeks colour... 
Week 49 - Cotton Candy 
Week 49: Rudhi got a Candy Gun!

Hair: Rosy Mood - Lyra 2 (Freebie) 
Skin: Ploom - Maia in Smoke Honey 
Make-Up: (Cheeks) [theSkinnery] - Swirl Lolliblush 3, AND, (Lips) Insufferable Dastard - Valentine Lips in Soft Pink
Piercing: Cute Poison - Beauty Destroyed 
Backpack: Epic - Kawaii Mini Cupcake Jetpack in Mint

As you can see I stayed within the cute side of my brain for this colour look lol... I'm the superhero of  Candyland... Flying in with my cupcake jetpack to save the day and looking super adorable while fighting crime with not a hair outta place... If only life was like it was in the movies, and hair always did what we wanted it to do LOL!!! 
Next Week - Gold

Hell on Wheels

Sometimes I get sick of taking photos of myself, it always seems like a treat for me to take photos of someone else... Hell was asked if he wanted to feature one of his bikes in the Snakebite Magazine, a publication by SL motorbike club - the Cobras - that he is a part of. 
I guess I have to say thank you to them, for two reasons. First this is a great advertisement for Hell's store and any publicity is good publicity right? Secondly, they take him off my hands and keep him out the way so that I am free to get on with my own thing LOL... Selfish reason I know, but hey a girl needs her own time LOL. 
It did however give me the opportunity to use my "ken" dolly as a model, he gets bored after a while so I have free reign to manipulate things to get the kind of shots that I want - hence ken dolly lol - yes I had to use one of his bikes as a pose prop, but hey beggars can't be choosers LOL...
Hell's Rebel Bike is going to be the featured bike in Snakebite Magazine this month, and I guess it would make me a bad girlfriend if I didn't use this opportunity to promote his store... 
He owns a store called Hogs and Cart Wheels - offering everything from cars and bikes to famous vehicles and novelty rides - he puts a great deal of dedication into each vehicle he makes - leaving our shared build platform looking like a car junk heap for long periods of time while the vehicles are taking shape! He's told me that one of his dreams would be to have his own RL bike building store - something that seems to be backed up in his choice of TV, he loves that American Chopper programme - and although I will fully admit I have no real interest in cars or bikes in either life, seeing these brilliant vehicles taking shape is awesome! 
If you are interested or someone you know is interested in cars of bikes, please come check his store out, if there's something you cant find but you simply have to have, let me know and I'll see what we can do!!!

(FYI - I would try to offer some idea of what Hell is wearing but when I asked him he was like HUH? - LOL he doesn't understand the whole fashion aspect - but if you see something on him you like, feel free to ask and I will bang my head against a wall to get the information out of him, even if I have to go into his inventory to get it myself!)

Winter Fair 2012

It's not very often that I am asked to become part of a blogging team, covering events like I used to do when I was working for Seraphim, so when it does happen it surprises me. I lost a lot of my contacts in the event organisation world due to leaving that blog, but I felt awesome when I was invited to become part of the blogging team for Winter Fair 2012. Earning the honour - though some might say that's too strong of a word for this - on my own blog makes me feel great, I've built up this blog alone and I do treat it as a journal of sorts, but to be recognised YAY - what a great feeling. 
Winter Fair 2012 opens TODAY at 9AM SLT and it runs until December 15th... I know there are a lot of fun things starting today - The Arcade's new round and the With Love Hunt for example - but you really won't want to miss out on this event. It's STUFFED full of lots of really cute... well, stuff! 
There is so much to show you, but I picked out my favourite things got myself all glammed up... Shame that the bus carrying the Rudh Dollies broke down on the way to the photo shoot - good job I had my camera ready for one of those candid camera moments hehe... 
All the things that I had been given to blog as part of the team caused me great trouble. I loved a lot of it and there was only so much of me to go around, but I ended up with three cute looks that I am sure I will be wearing for a while to come now...
Each Rudh is wearing an outfit that has a majority of Winter Fair Goodies - tops, pants, dresses, leggings, wellies and bling, there is so much available and in such a cute setting that it's well worth taking some time out of treasure hunting and gambling on the Gatchas to wander around this wintery event!
I've listed all the details at the bottom of the post as always, but there were just a few more things I simply couldn't resist including, collage style was the simplest way, but I know that these things will feature again at some point hehe!!!

Everything including the Kitchen Sink!

Once in a while a friend makes a bet with you about something so random, it slips to the back of your mind and you never think about it again... Well I've been subjected to this sort of torture, yesterday as I was chatting with my friend, sometime Hell replacement and stalker - Miss "Suki" Steampunk of TwoWords... HotMess, a fab blog by some awesome bloggers full of fashion and the events of SL - she took it upon herself to remind me of a bet we'd made in the distant past... How could I say no? I'm not gonna back down and let her be victorious...
I met Suki when I was working for Seraphim, she adored me and my ladypants LOL, and was perfectly happy in declaring her love for me... Something along the lines of "you are like the chocolate on my strawberries and the wind beneath my sails" - our love could be something out of a cheesy Mills & Boon Novel. 
What was the bet and how did it happen? I hear you wondering, I can read minds don't ya know... Well... Basically a long way back in time she was talking to me about making photos of people, about how girls take longer than guys to get dressed. I know I take a lot longer than my male friends seem to lol... My theory is that we have too much choice sometimes - don't get me wrong I LOVE my hoard and will bite the hands of anyone that tries to touch it - but it can take me hours to get dressed.  The challenge was to follow...
I told her I was amazed about how much accessorizing some people seem to do... I love me some accessories but sometimes you see people with something - or possibly multiple somethings - on every single attachment point, which led me to saying something along the lines of they wear everything except the kitchen sink. So I'm sure by now you you can guess where this is going? She challenged me to wear a Kitchen Sink, she even found me a sink on Marketplace... I had no idea where to go with this look... I thought the best plan of action would be to wear EVERYTHING including the sink - I know I cheated but it really looks like my inventory burped on me... If I had put on everything in my inventory, SL might implode! 
Hope you appreciate this Suki! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: bc322 - Ricca in LBPink
Skin: Ploom - Maia in Smoke Honey
Make-up: [VIRTUAL/INSANITY] - MAKE ME UP Eyeshadows in PaintBrush 8 AND Punk in Roses, AND, [mock] - Tainted Tears of Love w/ Dark Knight

52WOCC2 - Week 48

Colour Challenge day... Something a little different from my colour creation of last week, but then again I have never been one for doing something similar week after week! Its a bit like being on swing in my mind, sometimes I'm dark and depraved and others I'm sweetness and light... This week I seemed to be in the pretty part of my brain. That makes me sound like I have a split personality or something, but I don't, I just happen to love blood and gore as well as sparkles and rainbows - what's the problem with that? LOL...
Though trying to write the post has been more than a little difficult, some days I could write masses and talk about nothing much for hours on end, as I am writing this post though I'm thinking "what the heck do I say?" So, have the picture without to much rambling from me... 
Week 48 - Tangelo
Week 48: Let's Go Fly A Kite...
What is she wearing; 
Clouds: Pink Fuel - Happy Clouds 
Hair: Wasabi Pills - Up In The Hair 
Glasses: LiNe - Geeky Glasses

The sky is a little orange, I was thinking of a hot Indian summer - ya know where its randomly hot and sunny when it shouldn't be in England at least - yet I ended up with something more along the lines of a weird Mary Poppins style Rudh on a trip to a fantasy land where the sky is orange!
Next Week - Cotton Candy
