Hands of Hell in June's Horror Haute

The second look I created for Horror Haute June was something I wanted to be fairly simple... A little black dress, some cute jewellery and a simple but pretty hairstyle was all I needed, but then something happened to make my look seem a little more Horror Haute than sweet and innocent hehe... 
A demonic hand print appeared - now it could have been my own version of Hell or something much more sinister... I just love the fact this sexy black dress - which is Czarny Kanarek - from the front has a bit of a hidden secret on the back hehe... Though as I was dressing I caught this pose and noticed that giant red hand print... 
The other thing I wanted to share was these gorgeous earrings from InSpired Designs come with a collar, but the earrings are so cute filled with a little eyeball that I couldn't resist wearing them too... I don't normally wear earrings as my hair tends to cover my ears, but these are just too cute hehe...
For now though as much as I love talking about my Horrific Haute clothing, it's way too late and I should be going to bed hehe!!!

Collecting My Lovers Bones for a Horror Haute Recipe in June!

Horror Haute has been up and running for a few days now, things have been slipping through my blogging net as my blogging mojo has waned a little recently... Some days I have nothing I can think of to talk about and others it's like BOOM - loads to do and nothing I can get myself focusing on to work on LOL... 
Though I finally put my head down and created some looks for Horror Haute June, and let me tell you although the list is fairly short this month, it is packed full of cute - but dark - things... 
First up I spent a while playing around with this outfit and look to make it just how I wanted it to be... I had this feeling for something a little glamour puss, with a twisted edge to it - hence the Zombie look, but the dress seemed like something that would be worn by a modern witch with a slightly skankish flair - LOL it majorly appealed to me for this reason. Initially I will admit I was concerned how this style dress would fit but actually it went on and fitted like a glove! The dress comes complete with collar, gloves and pasties from a fairly new arrival on the Horror Haute circuit - Cain, but I cannot wait to see what more comes our way from them! I teamed it with some cute simple jewellery and some pretty retro style hair... Although the pretty silver ring I am wearing deserves a bigger photo hehe...
This ring comes from ImmateriA - for Horror Haute June - and although it comes in both gold and silver, I always tend to be partial to silver jewellery. SO GORGEOUS innit?! 

What is she wearing; 
Hair: Wasabi Pills - Veronica in Rouge 
Skin: Plastik - Zombie Femme Stage Two 
Eyes: Zombie Suicide - Wrath Eyes (Past Perfect Wardrobe Item) 
Face Wounds: (Forehead) REPULSE - Lobotomy Stitches Face Tattoo, AND Corvus - Cheek Scars
Face Piercing: SHOCK - Kiss My Spikes in Zebra 
Ouftit including Choker and Glove: Cain - Steampunk Dress Brilian in Black (HORROR HAUTE JUNE)

Well: Lark - Well of the Water Nix (Made by Sienia Trevellion - possibly for an older store?! Not sure, I'm sorry!!!) 
Pose: Starry Heaven - Rina 2

What's Your Digits? You can't ask a lady that LOL! Monday's Meme!

Well, as you may have guessed, it's time for another Berrylicious Meme and this week she brings out a tried and tested but so very interesting Meme idea... Asking each and every one of us about our digits. Now in RL it might be considered rude to ask a woman certain questions about her digits - I personally wouldn't really have an issue with it, because well I joke about the fact that I am a "fat girl" all the time, yet in SL I am going to have an issue in completing this Meme...
If you saw my post last time, when I talked about the Rudhish Digits, you may well have seen my ramblings - maybe they were more like a whinge?! - but if not there have been a few developments... So in working on this Meme I am not going to be able to offer up my digits as such... I hope you don't mind, but as a warning you might want to close the post and walk away - have a cuppa or something instead - rather than listen to me have a repeat whinge with added extras!
For those of you that don't know, my shape is no mod - dun dun dun - and yes I hear you thinking, well why didn't she go and get a new shape? Or why did she buy a no mod shape? Or even thinking that I am totally bonkers for not changing my shape every once in a while, let me fill you in on a few things.
Basically I am nearly 7 years old in SL - some think that's a lot, to others I am still fairly young - but in all that time I have been the same shape. A very old friend - who no longer plays SL - bought me my shape way back when I first started in-world, and back then I had no idea that I would need to be able to modify things later on - I was a noob, what did I know?! Since then I grew accustomed to the shape of my face, my body shape although I think it's cute is slightly less important to me than the my face and when you spend so long looking at it, the thought of changing it to something else - for me personally - seems like a hard thing to do. It would be like looking in the mirror and seeing someone else's face...
HOWEVER, and here is where the rambling varies from the last time I posted about my no-mod shape... I finally decided to contact the designer of ALady shapes - to see if it would be possible to get a copy of the exact same shape with modify permissions. I was willing to pay anything to get one. There was just one HUGE problem... She had lost a chunk of her inventory back at the time when people seemed to be having massive inventory problems and the one shape I wanted was one of them! I nearly cried that day! She was very apologetic - not that she needed to be, it wasn't her fault after all - and she gave me a very similar shape to the one I use that is a pregnancy version, so I am VERY slowly trying to adjust the shape to match my own. It's kinda tedious work but it's something that I have to try and do myself because I am SO picky about it. I won't be happy with anything less than a perfect match facially and I don't want to offend people by saying something isn't good enough, but damn it's taking me time to tweak it...
Until then, that's all the stats you are getting from me LOL... I can't tell you much other than without heels - using the SL height measure I am 6ft 2"... Sorry for the rant, but that's my excuse for not putting my stats up! 

What is she wearing; 
Book: Candie's Book - Alice in Wonderland (No Longer Available)

Telling Stories By The Campfire

I've got a lot to do LOL... Need to work on some looks for Horror Haute, there is a new - or old but newly restarting event - called Flux coming, and I need to work on my digits picture AND there will be a new Disney look to work on in the next day or so - and don't even get me started on the amount of work that I need to do on the Gators blog too, but sometimes when you have so much to do its nice to not do any of it and just work on something that you feel like LOL... That's what happened with me today.
I actually took this picture on Friday but it's taken me until now to get something done with it. I don't know what it is but my blogging mojo seems to be lacking somewhat! Though I really couldn't resist this photo as it shows some of my new loves hehe...
Firstly the Crocodile... Now you might have seen these in the line up of last Friday's Fifty Linden Friday, but as soon as I saw them I KNEW I would need them for the garden outside my play house home - I couldn't choose between the pink and the green at the time, in hindsight the green is my favourite but at least I know I have the pink version and it could be of use at some later date if I need it LOL... Justifying myself here in the open like this, is it really necessary?!
Secondly the skin and my outfit... I was in love with this look so much when I put it on last Thursday that I stayed in it for a good few days - least we dont sweat or get dirty in SL huh?! The skin and top were created by the awesome Iokko Molko for Sugar as a special that was available last wednesday - I wanted to try to cover them back then but the lack of blogging mojo just wasn't going to let me - so I am hoping they are still available! The outfit that I created just fell together... A cute but old skirt, a hoody with some adorable angel wings and a gorgeous pair of boots... I loved this look so much!! Oh and don't worry, that's not my blood LOL! 

What is she wearing; 
Hair: Wasabi Pills - Lory 
Skin: Sugar - Chloe in Mononoke Blood (Past Woeful Wednesday Item) 
Face Wounds: (Forehead) REPULSE - Lobotomy Stitches Face Tattoo, AND Corvus - Cheek Scars 
Face Piercing: SHOCK - Kiss My Spikes in Zebra

Top: Sugar - Hello Titty Innocent Tee (Past Woeful Wednesday Item)

Don't leave me too long, Biker Boy!

I am never normally shy about posting photos of me that I've worked on in here, or on flickr... For some reason here I can proudly show my work without even the slightest flicker of an eye, yet when I think about seeing anything in people's profiles or on their walls I get more than a little nervous. Yet yesterday was the icing on the cake for the level of nervousness that I felt about one of my photos...
This photo was one I created to enter into one of those put a picture on the walls and then let people vote for it type things. I would never normally have done a picture - sometimes these things feel more like a popularity contest - but I was kinda coerced into creating something by Hell and the Gator girls.
Let me explain... Basically the biker MC world have a lot of events known as rallies. These are places that the biker groups can all come together to hang out and have a good time, and I will admit that although I don't fully feel like a biker I am enjoying meeting some new people with different interests at them. The current rally is being held by a biker club called the Doom Crew, and they have planned a few different activities including some freaking awesome bumper cars, and of course a photo contest.
You needed to use a photo that was somewhat summer related as well as being about bikes - so I created something and spent a while fiddling with it - no amount of different background colours or lighting settings made this look better - but I wanted a picture that was a bit of a pin up style and was made to look folded and creased like some biker had just pulled it down from the wall and folded it up to take it with him as he rode out on a summer biker tour.

What is she wearing; 
Hair: Wasabi Pills - Monique 2 
Skin: Sugar - Avril in Rockin Ruby (Available from June 8th at The Depraved Nation Thrift Shop) 
Face Piercing: SHOCK - Kiss My Spikes in Zebra 
Top: Gator Girl Summer Top, available for members of the Gators MC
Shorts: LRH - Frayed Medium Denim Shorts 

Shoes: Maitreya - Shearling Boots in Black 
Bike: Hogs and Cart Wheels - Chief 
Pose: Made by HellBone for this photo

My Dark Charming

Two things I love to do besides being hanging out in SL and writing my rambling thoughts for you here are checking out what other people are up to by reading blogs and flickrs, as well as playing around with those adorable create-your-character type "games" - wouldn't know if they are games actually but I can't think what else to call them... 
Anyway, I was sitting with my tea just now perusing the gorgeous photos on Flickr, when I came across a picture from Isis Zamin featuring a character created in one of these "games"... That was it I spent the next half hour or so playing to make a Rudh version LOL...
So this is my little Dark Charming Rudh...I could spend hours making these LOL... I simply couldn't resist sharing either... 
Go make one yourself at Dark Charming, and if you do I would love to see it!

SL DisneyBound - Week 15

A new week and a new Disney character... I really wasn't sure that I was going to be able to make this week's schedule either as I have been so sick over the past few days, but never fear Rudh is here to bring a new twist on a Disney favourite! I am, I will admit, writing this on and off between pain attacks and so if its more rambling than normal please forgive me LOL!
I love this week's movie, it is definitely in my Disney top ten... I have an awesome photo of Hell from our recent Disney trip posing with Mike Wazowski and sitting in my bedroom on my dresser is a GIANT Sully! Gotta Love Sully! 
It's not Mike or Sully, but another cutie from the Monsters Inc... 
Week 15 - Boo!
Such a cutie patootie, who couldn't look at that face and think "Awwwww!" She's another fiesty little Disney princess in her own special way - her puppy dog eye look could win the heart of any meanie and her giggle - SO FREAKING ADORABLE!!! I'm so going to have to go watch this movie now!
My look for Rudh was somewhat of a grown up version of Boo... Posing in a pose made by my sister and blogging owner of SoHawtSL - Miss Morgana Hilra - she looks like she is thinking back to her days at the Monsters Inc and reminiscing over memories of her favourite monster Sully! The look I found for RudhBoo is simple, a pretty pink dress from Cynful and a pair of old but still cute lavender coloured jeans from Holli Pocket, teamed with the ever Booish pigtails, though I will admit I replaced her adorable socks with some killer heels - but hey the little girl grew up hehe... The only other thing that would remind her of her Monster Inc days, besides her posing buddy from D-Lab of course is the Monster tag she wears around her neck thanks to Adore & Abhore hehe... 

What is she wearing; 
Hair: Ploom - Aidyn
Skin: Sugar - XCX Avril in DB Cleavage 
Eyes: IKON - Horizon Eyes in Dark Verdigris 
Face Piercing: SHOCK - Kiss My Spikes in Zebra 
Necklace: Adore & Abhore - Drippy Necklace in Monster Silver

The Monday Meme Gets Weird!

So it's Tuesday in my neck of the woods, and Berry has hit us with a new meme this week that is somewhat of a step back into something easy following the brain exercising past few memes... This one is all about weird questions... To be honest I am not a stranger to being weird, I'm sure that a lot of people will agree, maybe not weird but different might be a better term.
To prove that I made a bit of an interesting photo... My Biker Sister Julz wanted a photo of the two of us together... She took me to a toy store and wouldn't buy me a barbie LOL...
So Berry gave us a weird list of questions... Some of them seem easier to answer than others, but as always they made me smile when I was suffering a dose of nothing to do at work LOL... On with the questions then...
Which was the last sim you visited? (Other than your home) The Doom Crew MC North America Chapter Rally location - sounds like a mouthful but it is the place where the Gators will be hanging out for a few days now so we're just making sure our tent is set up!
Does your avatar look like the real you? God no... Rudh is my Barbie Doll... I would never hide that fact, and if you ask nicely enough I might well show you the real me LOL...
Do you wear underwear/panties underneath your clothing when out and about on the grid? Umm I know I should, due to the problems of Mesh not rezzing and not wanting to flash people my lady parts, but I swear the majority of the time I just forget! Some of the skirts I wear though it should happen LOL...
If you won a million linden dollars, what would be the first thing you buy inworld? Gosh a Million Linden Dollars... I would like to say something like cash the money out and use it for RL money, but seeing as the question is specifically inworld hmmmmm.... Maybe I'd get a Sim - but then I'd worry about tier running out and having to get RL money to fund my sim after that! I usually buy what I want as soon as I see it, so ummm - clothes and shoes in abundance LOL and lots of presents for my friends and family?!
Have you ever bought something in SL and then realized afterwards that you had already owned it from before? Oh yeah... More than I would care to admit... I get all girly and excited and then realise I've already got the item LOL... Still I'm learning to check more if I am unsure and I will just search the item name in my warehouse wardrobe, but I guess it supports the designers I love so... 
Have you ever done anything in Second Life that would be considered illegal in real life? Seems like a lot of people have snuck into others houses - be it by accident or on purpose. Hell did it once and I took picks of him sitting on an old neighbours washing machine LOL... But aside from that hmm I guess at one stage of my SL a good few years ago now, I could have been considered a hooker?! One of the guys I was "seeing" was a bit of a mafia boss wannabe and he gave me a lot of money to basically be his eye candy *coughs* amongst other things LOL...
If you could go out on a date with any other avatar, who would it be? Well I'm already with HellBone but if he doesn't count that's a tough question... Possibly my good friends Angel or Nick - no surnames mentioned as I don't wanna get them in trouble LOL - both guys are funny, put up with my crap and know how to have a good time... I think it would be entertaining with either of these two LOL!
Who, in your opinion, was the greatest avatar to ever slive? There are a few people I can think of but I don't know if I should name names... Though to be honest the greatest avatar to ever slive has to be myself LOL!!! Modest I know but if I hadn't made the decision to slive I wouldn't have made the bonds with other great avatars, or learnt so many new things?!
What is the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done in-world? Hmmm where do I start... I'm sure I've flashed people accidentally, and said the wrong things at times but pinpointing one exact event is proving to be pretty hard...  Can I pass on this one, I might come back later LOL
If your avatar had a mind of its own, what do you think it would say to you? Right now she'd probably say "Oi haven't you got some work to do?" I know this sounds stupid but Rudh seems to be my confident side that my RL lacks, and sometimes I find Rudh talking in my head saying "Emily just do what I'd do!" LOL - that kinda helps though, helped me get my current job LOL...

What is she wearing;

An ode to myself... An Acrostic Poem Meme!

Miss Berry has done it again, and given us another stress inducingly, brain exercisingly hard Meme... A couple of week's back we headed into the realm of poetry and after my shockingly bad attempt at a Haiku a few weeks ago, I am not promising that this attempt at an Acrostic poem will be any better. I will also admit before I even start here that although Berry has her acrostic poem written on her blog, I did have an oopsie I'm a dumbass moment and thought "what the heck is an acrostic poem again?" - one was staring me in the face and I was still unable to work out what the heck it was LOL...While thinking I worked on a pretty, but kinda random "just like Rudhmellowen" photo...
Still I wracked my brain and tried to come up with something - first I was going to try one just for Rudh, but that didn't really give me much to play with so I held my breath and took a dive from the high board to create a poem for my full name - that's Rudhmellowen if you didn't know hehe...
In all its badly written glory, ladies and gentlemen, I give you an Acrostic poem about me...

It wasn't as hard to write as I thought it was however, thanks to the useful website link that Berry shared with us to provide a guideline for writing Acrostic Poems, I am not sure I am overly happy with my poem but to be honest this was MUCH better than some of the first attempts that I had made... I might try my hand to writing more, but on a side note to Berry - I know I asked in the past for harder Memes but come on dear it's nearly summertime, maybe something easier next week would mean we all keep our hair for the summer season... Not everyone looks good in hats LOL!!!

Summerfest '13, Where the MishMish Monster Plays!

Summer is coming - not that you'd know it too much in my RL neck of the woods - but SL is pulling out all the stops to make everyone feel summery... The events that are springing up all over the grid have the summer time feeling that I am definitely lacking at home.
The Summerfest  '13 started on the 15th and it's an event that will have you stripping to your undies and running for the waves at full speed. The location is jam packed with a collection of beach huts - with designers filling the little space and spilling out onto the beach - giving this place a real sense of a beach bazaar!
I have a couple of things from the event to show you, first up let's go with the freaking adorable otter that is sitting there on the grass minding his own business... I saw these on Sophia Harlow's blog and simply HAD to have one. !Oh Mai is selling them with a variety of different colours - and as avatars too - so it took me a while to pick the colour I wanted, and then to my excitement they come with a collection of different display versions and carry versions... I was showing mine off to everyone who would look - Bikers don't really seem to get my craziness for adorable stuff *pouts*! THEN, also from Summerfest '13 is this adorable pose prop friend called Dunneh - straight out of the mind of Aime Takaaki of MishMish - he has 4 different poses and comes with the Beware of the Waves Sign in the background. Who wouldn't want a lifeguard like this, just so long as he doesn't need to give mouth to mouth! 
Hmmm let's see what else do I want to rave about in this photo... OH the Bikini Top!!! This is part of a set from a Gacha by the store PixyStix. PixyStix is a store that is fairly new to me, but it is stuffed full of awesome goodies including skins and clothing. Anyway though, the bikini is one of 6 that can be won from the Gacha Event at the Colosseum - at 25L per try and each design coming with their own set of Tango appliers - who wouldn't want unicorn bikinis in their life hehe...  To complete the outfit I pulled on one of my go to skirts from Sugar and some crocs from Gos and these amazing tentacle socks from Silent Sparrow that were part of the Fifty Linden Friday line-up... I feel all Summery!!!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Wasabi Pills - Lory in Iceburg (Available Now at the Arcade)

SL DisneyBound - Week 14

I am running more than a little late with this photo for the SL DisneyBound Challenge this week, and my reason is because I haven't actually been that motivated by the character. I haven't actually seen the movie and although I want to, and will see about getting myself a copy of it sometime today, I just haven't had the chance to yet! So OK I am a little slow off the starting point this week, but with that little speech said I move on to presenting what will be a shot in the dark for me hehe!
Week 14 - Vanellope Von Schweetz (From Wreck It Ralph)!
This little character, from what I can gather by reading around the subject of Wreck It Ralph, is a little glitchy, and that has made her face a lot of rejection from her other racers in the game Sugar Rush. Yet she has prevailed through that and become a cutie with a wicked sense of humour and a sharp tongue to boot... Sounds like we could all learn something from that in our SLives, definitely something that I am going to try and strive for anyway. 
So as I am a bit unfamiliar with this character I based her look off of pictures that I found in Google. She was actually pretty fun to work on, and the look seemed to just fall together - aside from the fact that this colour is one I wouldn't normally go anywhere near LOL... Maybe because I had so little of it in my hoard it was easier to make a look?! 
I bought this adorable new sweater from all.berries on the marketplace, and then as soon as I put on these tights from Sugar Heart that are available in a gacha at the Arcade I was happy with the look! It just needed a little candy and thanks to my necklace from Violet Voltaire - that is an oldie but still a freaking cute set - and a lollipop from Sugar I was ready to go... Now where did I leave my racing car? Maybe I left it at the sim I took the photo on... Cake is a place you can rez and it looks like its made of icing!!! WOW!

What is she wearing; 
Hair: Ploom - Gigi 
Skin: Sugar - XCX Avril in DB Cleavage 
Eyes: IKON - Horizon Eyes in Dark Verdigris 
Lollipop: Sugar - Dirty Pop in Melon Balls (Past Gacha Item - may still be available!) 
Sweater: all.berries - Wrap Cropped Sweater in Mint 
Necklace: Violet Voltaire - Lollipop Guild Necklace 
Top: TuttiFrutti - Gil Mesh Top in Cockatoo 
Skirt: PARADISIS - Falls Suede Skirt in Brown 
Tights: Sugar Heart - Sweet Factory Tights in Eye Candy RARE (Available now at the Arcade
Pose: Starry Heaven - Purikura 5

Make me a Movie Star... Movie Memes

So its another week and time for another Berry Meme... I am in the process of working on the Meme she offered up last week - to do with writing Acrostic Poems about SL - well it's harder than I thought it would be, and I really couldn't get into writing something. I don't want to put out a half-hearted effort LOL... I need it to be something worth reading hehe... SO for now I am skipping that Meme and working on it as I can spare time to think about writing poetry, for now I jump to this week and the Movie Poster Meme! 
There are some amazing movie posters that I have seen so far - everyone is so creative in putting their photography skills to use - but when I had to wrack my brain and think which movie do I want to base my poster on it was a little tough. There are so many awesome movies that I love but I wanted something simple... 
The Rocky Horror Picture Show is one of my favourite movies, I LOVE the music and the somewhat craziness of this random movie. I've seen this movie so many times that I've been able to recite the entire script word for word - not to mention the songs and the dancing! 
The randomness of this movie sums up my SL fairly well - my blog too I guess... So, on that note... All together now Ladies and Gentlemen... "Let's do the time warp againnnnnnnnnn!"

What is she wearing; 
Skin: Lamp*Light - Lady Shadow Skin 
Lipstick: Acid & Mala - Unusual Lipstick In M Dark Red 
Face Piercing: SHOCK - Kiss My Spikes in Zebra

A Visit to the Swamp

You might have heard me mention the Gators before now, and no doubt you will hear them being mentioned again but this is a post that was started in my brain by one of them. Angel came to me a few weeks ago to see if it would be OK for his friend Charyssi to come and take some photos of the clubhouse - the Gators MC home space - and the surrounding swamp, he even bribed me by showing me some of her other work - but I was more than willing to let anyone come in and enjoy the space.
For those of you that have never been to our home land, it is a relaxed and cosy feeling swamp with lots of places to explore, for those of you that know the land you might be in for a surprise as HellBone and Remus have been busy working their green fingers and have made a few rather gorgeous alterations - YAY Mesh that's all I can say!
So I have spoken to Charyssi and been given permission to share some of her amazing photos - I loaded the full set of photos onto the Gator blog seeing as they are focused on the area around the clubhouse - but I just wanted to share my personal favourite here and make sure that people check out her other amazing photos on her flickr photostream.

Sugar Fairies

Woot I'm on a roll... Second post today YAY! Back with more from Sugar and the gorgeous creations of Miss Iokko for the Depraved Nation Thrift Store event! Basically, the idea behind the event is that all the participating stores will have an exclusive item that will be sold at a discount price of 50% off the original price for a new release, as well as that some of the participating stores will also have Gatchas... As if the Gatchas at the Arcade weren't enough!
So when Io sent out her gacha item to the bloggers group, I pulled one of the items on and proceeded to dance around in it... I was the Pride and Honour MC Rally - an area filled with somewhat serious bikers that look at you like an alien sometimes - but as I was a little stuck with what to do with them, my big sister (and hot biker secretary) Julz suggested I was a fairy... DUN DUN DUNNNNN, Julz this one is kinda for you LOL!
Now the photo up above was me getting overly artistic and you cannot clearly see the item in question, but hey a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. I just felt artsy fartsy! Like those Victorian Photographs of fairies, I wanted a feeling like someone had caught a fairy on film, but I have had to throw together a little something to show off the sprouts being worn without all the faff... What kind of blogger would I be if I didn't actually showcase the item?!
They come in a variety of different colours and styles, but I loveeeeee ladybirds so this was the one for me!

Sugar Skins and Rainbow Nails!

In a blogging mood today, wonder how much I will actually be able to get done hehe... It's been a while since I was able to kick my blogging mojo into higher gear and get as much done as I would like - I blame the entertaining stuff, the Arcade for example, and the rally that the Gators are hanging out at, not to mention being somewhat uncomfortable sitting still at times due to the pain! - yet today I have much to talk about, so let the rambling commence. 
First off... SKIN! Now normally I don't ever feel the urge to blog like a fashion blogger - sometimes I do it but you know it's never very good LOL - yet with this particular release I simply couldn't hold back showing them off in the most clear way possible. 
The skins are from Sugar and will be released at a 50% discount for the Depraved Nation Thrift Shop Event, which starts today - although I don't have a LM for it yet, but I will try to update later on! Now I know Sugar skins aren't one of the "popular" brands favoured by many in SL, but I am happy to admit that I wear them as my regular everyday wear skins. They come with SO MANY EXTRAS - not only does each skin tone include two different brow colours, teeth options and cleavage options, you also get a box of modifications such as freckles, dimples, moles and brow shapers! PLUS, Iokko - Sugar's owner - has now delved into the murky depths of making appliers for both Lola Tangos and SLink hands and feet!!! 
Talking of SLink - and moving on to my second point too - I think I mentioned before about the Enhancement nails that you can wear on your basic SL hands. I've thought about trying hands but to be honest at the moment I'd rather have my money for shoes and clothes and hair, but who knows in the future LOL... For now I am more than happy with these Enhancement Nails and because there are SO MANY designers out there now who are jumping on the applier band wagon creating amazing nail varnishes, you might be able to see why! I've been wearing KOSH nail varnish since I was supplied with the Enhancement Nails but I couldn't resist taking some time to put together a little photo of some of the other awesome nails I've collected hehe...

Hair: Ploom - Piper

SL DisneyBound - Week 13

Two Disney Posts one after the other, I promised I'd be back with more this week... and this week is the - unlucky for some - 13th week. It promises to be a week that will see us slip into a land of madness - I mean two Disney inspired posts in a week, that's madness enough right? WRONG! We head into one of my all time favourite Disney Movies this week, and I say one of because I do love every Disney animated movie, yet alongside Beauty and the Beast, Wonderland has to be one of my all time favourites - I loved the books on their own too but there is something about the Disney interpretation! 
Week 13 - The Mad Hatter 
So there isn't much to explain about as a background to this character LOL, he is what it says on the box so to speak. I am going to point out that his idea of Unbirthdays is a stroke of genius and I do believe that it should be instigated in every household, everywhere... Note to Hell... From now on I will be expecting cake for breakfast every day and presents when I wake up too!!! You have been warned Mr.Barbosa!
SO, I reached for my favourite hat, the one attached to the Magician hair from Wasabi Pills, but from there my outfit was a total mystery. I spent a long time standing around in my knickers and top hat pulling through my clothes. I also opted for the more Disneyland Park Character colours with the slightly more orange jacket rather than the yellow/green colour in the actual movie. My necklace was one of my favourite accessories, a full dinner on a plate - who needs a take-away diner when you can make your dinner and take it with you on a plate. A cupcake with a candle to celebrate my Unbirthday at the tea party being held on the Alice Is Wonderland...

What is she wearing;
Hair: Wasabi Pills - Magician 

Skin: Sugar - Avril in Rockin Ruby (Available from June 8th at The Depraved Nation Thrift Shop)

SL DisneyBound - Week 12

OK so to some it may look like I'm being naughty and have skipped a week but it is in fact not the case... The reason that I am so late with getting the Week 12 look of the SL DisneyBound challenge up here is due to the fact that poor Miss Natalee - the host of the challenge and also owner of the store Noodles - was really busy setting up her items for this month's Arcade event! To be honest, can't blame her... Her items for the Arcade are SO FREAKING CUTE and she is a busy lady, so we will let her off with the lateness of her look, yet that of course had a bit of a knock on effect for my Disney look. This does mean on the plus side, I guess, that you will get not one but two Disney Rudhs this week - potentially?! Never a bad thing is it?
WEEK 12 - SMEE (From Peter Pan)!
That's right, this week we head back to Neverland and go in search of the movie's evil villain - finding his cute and cuddly sidekick instead. Smee in the Disney Movies seems somewhat like a cuddly old grandpa, or uncle at least, and no matter how much Hook gives him abuse he remains smiley throughout. You've gotta love cuddly ol' Smee!
So whilst still trying to retain that cuddly cute feeling I needed to dig deep for something to wear. White hair would be simple, I've been wearing white hair a lot recently - considering I'm usually either a redhead or a raven haired, it sometimes comes as a bit of a shock to some people - and to be honest I kinda like it! Though Smee's style is fairly simple I had a fairly major obstacle... The Hat! I don't normally wear hats, and so I had to dig like a crazy person to find something. That was when I rediscovered the apple beret that was a freebie from C'est La Vie and when teamed with a pair of cute glasses from Iruco - that I believe came from a Gacha at the March round of the Arcade and a striped one sleeve shirt from Shabby Cat. To let you in on a secret, I used to LOVE Shabby Cat, and I am ashamed to admit it that I had kind of forgotten just how awesome the items are from that place... I will have to start shopping there again YAY!
All I needed to complete the look was a pirate ship... Thank you Destination Guide... I found the BLACKSPOT Shipyard - not admittedly the best thing for a pirate to deal with, blackspots I mean, but this place has LOTS of ships to choose from!!

What is she wearing; 
Hat: C'est La Vie! - Apple Beret 
Hair: DeLa - Sophie in White 
Glasses: [Iruco] - Blow Glasses in Red 
Skin: Sugar - Ink in Tone 3 Dark Brows 
Face Piercing: SHOCK - Kiss My Spikes in Zebra 
Neck Piercing: Cute Poison - Vendetta Piercings 
Necklace: Concrete Flowers - Grandads Old Compass Necklace 
Top: Shabby Cat - Claudia Mesh Top in Blue 
Shorts: LRH - Frayed Medium Denim Shorts 
Shoes: SaT - Studded Ankle Boots in Black 
Pose: Starry Heaven - Mami Poses 1

MishMish Water Attack

So unless you've been living under a rock for the last few days you may well have heard that there is a new round of the Arcade up and running -  haven't had the chance to get in there yet and I am already bouncing around all over the place till I can get in after work is over this week on Thursday...
Yet the lovely Aime Takaaki of MishMish has helped me fill my Gacha crazy desires by sharing with me her awesome prizes from her little Arcade machine. 
For the Arcade she's made these adorable little water guns in the shape of fishies - perfect toys to play around with on a hot summer day, and you should know me by now I LOVE playing with random toys.
So there was I swimming around in the sea at the Garden, minding my own business when I noticed my new little friend - that I named Mishy, because I am sometimes not the best at coming up with names for my cuddly pals - was floating around minding his own business too, just chilling and enjoying those warming spring rays of sunshine... The temptation was too great. I grabbed my shark shaped watergun and as I swam over I sang the theme tune to Jaws before jumping out of the water and surprising poor little Mishy hehe...
OK I know it wasn't exactly like that, but that was the idea that I wanted to try to achieve in this photo, and I don't think that I was too far off the mark to be honest. I was just enjoying playing with my new toys, LOL I feel like such a big kid sometimes.
There was one item that I wanted to show off too, which didn't show up too well in the main photo, so once again in my usual way I decided to provide a close up shot. This is the MishMish May VIP Group gift... innit cute?

What is she wearing;
Hair: Ploom - Fluster 
Skin: Sugar - Ink in Tone 3 Dark Brows 
Necklace: MishMish - Sea Turtle Necklace (Current VIP Group Gift - 100L Group Joining Fee!) 
Bikini: Pig - Out There In The Dark Bikini 
Nails: SLink - Enhancement Fingernails for Default Hands, WORN WITH, KOSH - Glitter Nails
