Fast Food Bandit

She ran into the diner and shouted "Gimme all your pie, or I'll shoot!"
Brandishing the biggest bazooka gun that she could lift, the cartoon character of a woman draped in an outfit that would make even Ronald McDonald jealous, stood in the doorway to the retro restaurant letting her eyes grow accustomed to the inside space.
"Bugger" she thought, "There's no one here!" After a brief moment, when a somewhat downhearted look passed over her face, she moved to rest her toy gun against the wall... It was heavy and actually it was kinda hot due to the fact it was fully loaded with fresh hamburgers - her ammunition of choice for the day...
With the briefest of looks to check there truly was no one around, the woman bounced over the counter and reached for the maple pecan pie... Realising there were no forks available, she went for the caveman approach and shovelled it in... Before snatching up her weapon and disappearing into the night.
All that remained for the diner owner to find the next morning, were the faint lingering smell of hamburgers - though that wasn't unfamiliar in the diner, and the empty plate with a note saying "Next time I want Cheesecake!" with a name scrawled beneath that read The Fastfood Bandit!
The look that I pulled together for this was random I know but I had things in my inventory that had been collecting dust and I thought they needed to get out into the light of day. I found the location by chance but if you haven't heard about this place you might want to check it out. The diner is located at Gachatopia - a place where people can rent stores just to resell their gacha items... I think this is a bloody brilliant idea... I might have to think about trying to rent one myself?! Who knows... But if you have a need of something to make up a set, then wander around here, you never know what you will stumble across!
The outfit started in my head as a pair of tights, the Good Gravy and Fries tights from Sugar Heart, and the PizzaBoots from Rachel Breaker, but in my mind I knew I couldn't stop there... Sometimes I get caught up in an idea too much hehe... I went all out fast food, starting with the dress - which sadly is no longer available, and then accessorising with a headband and hat both from yumyums, an eye patch from Blah and some jewellery that is no longer available too... That's one of the things I love about having a journal blog, I can dig deep and still share things that might not be brand new. 
The last thing that the Fast Food Bandit needed was her special weapon... This Bazooka was a past release at The Arcade from Tee*fy, and although the Burgzooka is perfect for robbing the diner, I had a really hard time choosing the weapon I wanted LOL...

He shouldn't have gone to sleep... Oh well here comes Monday's Meme!

I got very lucky when it comes to Berry's Meme this week... Her Meme is based around her fake honeymoon with her rather handsome fake hubby, but the key theme is actually an interview with questions from someone else to her... We needed to have a photo with someone else, or at least that was what I felt I needed when I saw the instructions, and so I go back to being very lucky because I had the perfect picture in mind... 
This is my friend Dyson. I would consider this awesome, funny, caring, friendly guy to be one of my besties - someone I talk to on a daily basis and feel a void if I don't get to speak to him... Hehe soppy shit I know but you know how it is with some people, there aren't many I would say things like this for, but Dice is one of those!
So when I saw that Berry was asking us to be interviewed by someone, I knew I had the prime opportunity to share this awesome photo of us... He willingly gave me a few questions, some of which seem kinda hard, but it's time for some answers so here goes nothing...
Dyson: How did you get started in SL? I was originally playing another on-line community game, a little like SL only less realistic I suppose, called Furcadia. I wasn't keen at first but I was dragged into that game by a boyfriend at the time and became part of a little social circle. One of the guys discovered SL after looking for a place that was more advanced and gave him more freedom to be able to create things. We all got pulled into the SLuniverse with him and that is how Rudhmellowen as you know her now came to be hehe...
Dyson: How did you get started blogging? I always used to say "No, No way!" when people said would I ever blog. The people I knew with them at the time were using them as a way of bitching about people, and that wasn't for me. Though I guess it tickled my imagination and I began looking into other blogs, I loved the ones in which people shared their SL experiences without being cruel to others, and I began to realise that chronicling my SL in a blog would be like keeping a journal - something I could look back on and remember the time I'd spent playing with an on-line Barbie doll lol... So I held my nose, took a breath and dived in head first - on September 11th 2010 - letting myself get addicted ever since hehe...
Dyson: What's the origin of your name? That's another long winded story, but basically when I was younger - and still today in fact - I was very heavily into all things Tolkein. I wanted something that would stand out in a crowd and so I worked out a name for myself that could possibly be found in a Tolkein imagined, Elvish household.
Dyson: What's the genre or style that inspires you most? God that's a hard question because you know me, I like to be fairly eclectic. Though I guess I tend to veer more towards Gothic than mainstream. I usually tell people I am a zombie too, and then again very occasionally my rainbow Kawaii side springs to life... I am so complicated hehe... I guess I will say that I am most inspired by the Gothic/horror style.
Dyson: Where's your favourite place to take pictures? I know it will sound boring, but I think one of my favourite places to take pictures tends to be the family swamp. I love the natural feeling, but I will admit that the ability to rez props and the like here is also something that wins big brownie points. I LOVE to explore and take pictures in new places but the majority of my photography seems to be done at home.
Dyson: What's your favourite store? That's another tough one. I love places like MishMish and Intrigue Co because of the sheer adorableness of stuff that they create. I love Magika, Wasabi Pills and Ploom for hair, KOSH, Cute Poison and Maxi Gossamer for jewellery and well I wear a good deal of SAKIDE clothing... The problem with choosing my favourite clothing store is that I tend to just buy things that I like when I see them and will buy from all kinds of different stores, so I could never say just one, more like just one that I like a lot right now hehe!
Dyson: What's your biggest fashion. . .What's that word. . Faux Pas? Hmmm well now that I think about it, I tend not to fit in with the crowd of people that I seem to be around a vast majority of the time... I'm always reminding myself of New Years Eve when suddenly a large number - possibly about 20 or 30 people - from our friendly allied MCs appeared at the swamp. They were all dressed in what I could call biker uniform of black leather and denim and there was I dressed like a bright blue mermaid of land style look... I really felt uncomfortable for a while, because I didn't fit the biker norm... Now I look back on it and think 'If ya don't like it then it's your problem not mine and I am not changing for anyone!'
Dyson: What is your favourite personally created piece of art? Or which piece are you most proud of? Well another hard one, thanks Dice LOL... I have to say that looking through my Flickr collection there are a few that seem to jump out at me as special, although I do love them all!
* The first was one of the ones I created for the colour challenge during it's second outing. It was the first time I'd done any major photoshop tweaking... I called it a "Divine Gold Water Sprite".
* Another was made as a celebration of the 52 Weeks of Colour Challenge coming to a final stop. A bunch of the regulars - myself included - got together to create a special photo as a means of Thank You to the challenge founder, Luna Jubilee... Check the photo "Panties for Luna".
* Lastly in this picture collection I love this photo of the Lyrica Gallery that I took. Normally I don't take photos of places, let alone share them on Flickr, but this time was different because I was asked to show my photos at the gallery. I almost fainted when I was asked, was the most other worldly experience, but I guess it is one I am proud of... I had to get a photo of my work up, in the "Rudh at a Gallery" shot.
Dyson: What non-visuals give you inspiration? I get VERY inspired by music and my finished photos will always reflect that. Anything that gets me singing and dancing will always get a slightly more vibrant picture out of me, but recently one of the songs that I put on to drag something good out of me is the version of "Feeling Good" by Nina Simone.

Taking the stage

I've been trying to do more exploring lately... I felt that instead of being stuck on our build platform - or being surrounded by bikers, although that at times has it's perks - I needed to find more interesting places to enjoy. So I went looking for interesting locations that I could use in photography. I see so many people posting pictures on Flickr at gorgeous locations, I needed to see some of these places for myself. 
One of these locations was the Isle of Mousai... This place has a number of different areas set up, that seem perfect for any photographer - no matter what you're style of taking photos is. 
The old, abandoned theatre was the place that stuck in my mind most. I don't know why but I think I was drawn to the decadent glamour mixed with the abandoned desolation... How's that for romance huh? LOL... 
Anyway, the look was something that I randomly pulled together... It all came about purely and simply because one day I was looking for something on the marketplace and I spotted this gorgeous dress that screamed "BUY ME" at the top of it's lungs. The dress comes from *X*plosion, and is available in a collection of colours and fabrics, but to me the simple black ripped dress was something I HAD to have! The outfit then seemed to create itself as one item after another came together to create something akin to a gangster moll after the apocalypse hehe... The adorable Claudette hair from Wasabi Pills - that I have had my eyes on forever - the combination of Yummy pearl necklace and KOSH Avain key necklace and the long cigarette, not forgetting the booties that look like spats from JD, just screamed vintage 1920s glamour. 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Wasabi Pills - Claudette Mesh Hair 
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item) 
Face Wounds: (Right Eye) Corvus - Scarred Face Tattoo, (Left Cheek) Corvus - Cheek Scars, AND (Right Cheek) Little Pricks - Stapled Face Tattoo 
Necklaces: (Short) Yummy - Satin Bow & Pearls in Black (Available now at Collabor88), AND, (Long) KOSH - Avain Necklace in Pewter 
Dress: *X*plosion - Dirty Straps in Black 
Bracelet: Delusions - Blood Lust Bangles 
Cigarette: ImmateriA - Stregoni Sigarette (Part of the Stregoni Outfit) 
Garter: L.inc - Bitch Garter 
Shoes: JD - Catty in White

Teddy Bear Hunter

Though lots have bad things have been going on with me lately, I wanted to take some time to try and have a little fun again. After all, that is what SL is all about isn't it?
I was wearing an outfit that I really liked and decided to have try for another hash-job at making an attempted look of the day style post...
Rudh is officially now a big game hunter lol... That is if the big game is teddy bears and the hunting can be done in heels whilst at home LOL... The Teddy Bear in question is actually a sofa, from the store Dirtyland, that belongs to my daughter Kenzee, but is so cute that I let her leave on the roof of my play house. The pose that I am using, however, is one from Sparrowtree Studios called Pilgrim Girl.
I kept the majority of my outfit fairly simple - a cute black jacket and tank top combo from Corvus, hair pulled back into a pony tail from Ploom and some simple but cute black heels from GField, and all of this was due to the in-your-faceness of these awesome pants. The pants are something that I have had stashed in my inventory for a while, and have been looking for something to wear with them since I bought them, but they have been calling to me... Made by DRBC the skinnies have that POW factor, especially considering the POW is written across your butt!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Ploom - Khloe
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item) 
Face Wounds: (Right Eye) Corvus - Scarred Face Tattoo, (Left Cheek) Corvus - Cheek Scars, AND (Right Cheek) Little Pricks - Stapled Face Tattoo

Pants: DRBC - Skinnies in POW!
Shoes: GField - Strap Shoes Alex in Patent Black
Pose: Sparrowtree Studios Poses - Pilgrim Girl 
Teddybear: Dirtyland - Teddy Bear Sofa

Lucky Cat brought me Luck!

The last post I wrote I talked about the Project Limited event that is being hosted by the Depraved Nation group. I was sucked in by the Cute Poison piercings, but I will admit that it was when Jaimy Hancroft shared the details of the items that she would be providing from Death Row Designs, I knew I HAD to get in...
Luckily I had a little help!
The help came from my very own - brand new - lucky Fortune Cat available at MishMish. The Chinese Fortune Cat - or maneki-neko - is meant to bring good luck to it's owner, and BOY did this little one bring me luck.
I had decided I wanted these boots from Death Row Designs SO BAD, that as the opening time for the even rolled around I was itching to get in to get my hands on them. I knew they were limited and I even found myself praying to the Gods of SL hehe... Then my luck got even better because when I got over to the location - eventually I might add - they still had boots in both gray and black colours available... I did a little happy dance, then began to umm and aww over which pair I wanted... HellBone slipped me the lindens for BOTH pairs and the kneepads too...
Sometimes he spoils me, but seriously I have to think that the MishMish Fortune Cat was the real reason I got lucky and I am telling you now... THIS CAT IS HERE TO STAY hehe...

What is she wearing;
Hat & Hair: MINA Hair - Carlijn in Dark Red
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item)

Cute Poison before sleep is ImmateriAl...

Life has been difficult. If you read my last post you would see that drama seeped into my SL world and took hold, but I have finally decided to shake it off, tell it to hit the road and I am trying to get back to my old self! If I want drama I will watch a soap opera, thank you very much, SL is my place to relax and play not worry about being made to feel bad.
So with that I am jumping back into the blogging band wagon. I've been feeling like I have abandoned it for a while, and even though I post, some of it feels like it has been more robotic than fun to do... Hence why this post feels a little more like a breath of fresh air for me... I am finally feeling back to my old self again!
LOL back to my old self sees me getting into a coffin for sleep, what does that tell you about me and my SL? LOL - by the way no I am not a vampire, just a classy zombie who sleeps in a coffin hehe...
Anyway, the look was inspired by two things... Firstly - and not something that is very clear in the picture above and thus has been shown below in two close-up shots - was a set of piercings from Cute Poison. This new Hush Piercing has been released for the Depraved Nation Event called Project Limited, and means that only a few of each design will be available. They come in three different colours - black, silver or neons - and I love the fact it has multiple piercings without looking like you have been shot in the face with a be-dazzler... I am sorry but some places really do seem to make piercings that look like that, personally for me I feel that Cute Poison piercings are amongst the best in SL and I wouldn't want to wear anything else! I feel naked without them LOL...
The rest of the look, however, was inspired by the vintage pin-up glamour style that came to mind the instant I pulled this corset from ImmateriA on. I wanted to keep the look sophisticated and elegant, so I pulled on my favourite vintage style hair, the Veronica from Wasabi Pills to be precise, and some gorgeous vintage looking Mae Platform Heels from Gos Boutique. Then me being me I had to Rudify the look a little, or in this case make myself look dead LOL, a dead skin and a few face wounds really helped with that, and though thinking back on it, I could have added more blood, I do feel happy with just the bare minimum hehe...
So to close off this ramble about two awesome things, that I personally think people should own as they are brilliant pieces to mix and match with other items in your wardrobe, I am including the close-up of the Cute Poison Hush Piercings - only the black and neon versions - but I think you will get the idea hehe...

What is she wearing;
Hair: Wasabi Pills - Veronica
Skin: AKA - Female Epidemic Skin
Face Wounds: (Forehead) Fallen Doll - Execution, (Left Cheek) Corvus - Cheek Scars, AND (Right Cheek) Little Pricks - Stapled Face Tattoo
Lipstick: KOSH - WET LIPS in DARK Blood

Gone are the simple days, back when I was a Stripper...

It's that time again, the time when I post a pretty picture before I open up with a rambling rant to clear my head. My blog has always been more of a journal for me than some other blogs out there... I love looking a the fashion blogs myself, always searching them for something new and cute I simply cannot live without, but this place right here has always been a place I can express myself and share what is going on in my crazy mind.
Sometimes I think back on the days when I first started SL, and my first job as a stripper for a guy called Audio, and I wonder how did it all become so dramatic...
So I warn you now, reading on from here could make you go stir crazy as you enter into one of my rambling rants... Details about my outfit can be seen below the rant and I am sorry to bring people into this, but I need to get things off my chest and at least here I won't be getting into any fights lol...
*sighs* OK, where to start?!
Have you ever had one of those days where you wish you could close your eyes, go to sleep and wake up to start the whole thing again? I've been stuck like that for the past couple of weeks and boy do things build to a crescendo fast in SL. I would sleep and wake thinking things will be brighter when in fact the shade of mud colour just seemed to get murkier... There have been times when I just wanted to walk away but that would take me away from my love of tempting SL God fate!
Drama seems to be swirling around me like a lingering bad smell and if it's not one thing it's another... Something bad happens, it gets resolved and automatically another moves in to take it's place. People walk away from things they love, other people hide their true feelings and you end up feeling used and abandoned, but I guess in the long run it's taught me a few simple life rules.
These last few days alone have taught me that although I am the kind of person who will ALWAYS let people into her heart, and will always trust them, I have to resign myself to the fact that some people will walk all over you, take what they want from it and then drop you when they are done.
Adopting family is always going to be a risky business in SL, I won't be adopting anymore children from now on... First I lost daughters and now I lost my son. He left without even talking to me - he left the MC first -which was nothing in comparison to the shocker of him dropping me from his SL completely.Nothing feels so bad - from a SL point of view - as to when you let someone in, someone that knows how badly something had affected you, and they go and do the exact same thing just a few weeks later.
Maybe I made the mistake of following an order of a ranking officer in MC business - apparently the reason he left the MC in the first place - but surely if I'd meant as much to him as he meant to me, then he could have come to talk to me about it rather than avoiding me and talking to others behind my back? Maybe he just wasn't as ready as he thought he was for the kind of family life that Hell and I were giving him? Maybe there was something else I did wrong that he is too scared or selfish to come and talk to me about? Whatever the reason, I am done worrying, done crying and done thinking about it... It's time I moved forward with my SL, time I took control of it again and time to find people that are actually worthy of sharing my SL with me... I don't know if he will read this, but if he does... I do wish you the best in your SL, just remember next time there are people behind the avatars and your actions can and will hurt those around you.

She's Practically Joking... Monday's Meme!

Berry's Meme this week asks us to delve into our naughty sides, and share some of our favourite practical jokes - either at our expense or the expense of others...
I've never been very good at practical joking anyone... Though I am sure Hell will be quick to tell you about the time in RL when he was served a cup of tea made with salt rather than sugar LOL - and I will be quick to point out that he had it coming because he had pushed a cream cake in my face at a party full of strangers!
When it comes to pranking in SL though, I am always far to sweet and innocent and lovely to do anything lol - anyone who tells you different is a liar! - but I did find a few pictures to share - 3 of my favourites... These are snapshots from my naughtiness and not the best photos out there, but I hope you enjoy the laughs as I did when I was taking them!
The first picture is a fairly recent one, and it is one of the first in the series of "Never fall asleep and leave yourself online" featuring the lovely blue-haired Dyson! I love this guy, he means a lot to me and apparently I am a SL MILF - Thanks sweetie *hugs* - but he fell asleep and so when Kenzee started to talk about decorating him, I simply couldn't resist joining in the fun. Those branches on the peeny tree - yes it is a tree made from penis - were flapping in the wind like crazy!
Then there was the time Liquid - my precious baby booboo of a son - fell asleep for HOURS! Hell got involved with this one, and we turned our son into a mail order bride in his very own pink box complete with ribbon! 
When we were just living together in SL, HellBone and I had some neighbours that kept rezzing their stuff so that it kept hanging over our land. He was getting sick of it so he would go and use the toilet in their house... It wasn't really a prank but it was so funny at the time! 
There were lots of other things but when you want to share the pictures of them, you can never find them LOL... Either that or I forget to take pictures because I am laughing so hard! LOL! 

What in the Phone are you Missing?

I was thinking about the way I communicate today whilst sitting on the train and looking around the carriage. It struck me just how many people spend all their time looking at their phone or other devices... I know it makes me sound strange in saying so, and maybe even old before my time, but I cant help but wonder how people have altered their mind sets in such a short space of time. It reminded me of the time I was talking to a bunch of kids I worked with, and they seemed shocked to hear about how I never had a mobile phone when I was a kid. These kids were 7 and they all had one! Then looking around the train, all the people standing around me seemed to spend all their time playing with their phones... I looked out the window and noticed the rabbits by the track, or inside the train and see the faces that people pull and I wonder just how much people miss when they are looking at the things they hold in their hand.
It got my creative juices flowing hehe...
I put together another look of the day somewhat, and I am getting more into creating these... Gives me something more to do and makes me feel like I am achieving something, so expect Random Ramblings and looks of the day more regularly.
This look I pulled together because I was inspired by the whole phone thought that was playing out in my head. Luckily when it comes to the phones I had laid my hands on the rare red and black set of Zenith Call Me Bags, available at The Chapter Four. The rest of the look I based around the bright red bag... I pulled on a cute, flirty and more than a little sexy dress from R3VOLT - called Penny - and teamed it with some fishnet tights from Izzie´s. I then added a few more accessories in the form of this gorgeous Royal Khadijah Estate Necklace and Ring created by Maxi Gossamer - available at FaMESHed - my favourite Neck Corset Piercing from Cute Poison and my favourite Dirty Glasses from ellemeno to create a naughty, but cute look!
The location took me a little longer to sort out however, I wanted a wasteland and I scoured the grid looking for just the right place. When I found this sign at the Virtual Decay Mall I couldn't resist... I love silly jokes like this and although it might be a little morbid, it made me giggle! I wonder, if this was RL and Rudh was looking at her cell phone in her hand like this, would she miss the sign completely?

Internet Troll

I've said it before and I will say it again, I get so panicked when I find a teeny accessory that I want to ramble about here and then have to build an entire outfit around lol... It seriously makes me itch and I have to pull something seriously imaginative out of the bag at times. This time was really no exception, and it all started with the smallest piece of jewellery becoming the kick starter for my very own Internet Troll look hehe...
The accessory that started it all was the tiny boobies chain, that is available from Cute Poison for the new round of The Boobies Show. When I saw these advertised I thought they looked awesome and the HUD that is included has many different words to suit any mood you are in, but I was a bit dubious that I could wear them as I don't wear a pair of lola nungas. I am happy to say that they look great on normal sized nungas too!
But a plan formed in my head that wasn't anywhere near normal, and you know me I just decided to go with it LOL... I had recently bought - or won depending on how you look at a Gacha - some new goodies from Death Row Designs. The Creature Items - horns and legs with body blood, nails and face horns - were available from Oh My Gacha. I got lucky and won the Satan's Vengence Creature Legs, which are the rare items, and they come with the a few extras, that I decorated with the large Creature Horns in darkness. Of course, a troll shouldn't have normal human skin - I was wearing my normal skin at first and boy did it look a little strange - so when I pulled on the Gauze Dragon Born skin with it's tattoos, it just seemed to fit the look I was going for.
Then after that it was just a matter of making it seem more like an internet troll... I covered my modesty with some Duct Tape - an oldie but definitely one of my go-to items from League, and then accessorized for the internet, and then computerfied things by adding the Codie Hair from Discord Designs and the new Post Apocalyptic Nerd neck tie from Death Row Designs - available at FaMESHed. For the final Internet trollish touch, I had to of course give the access to the internet, thought the hand posing prop from Embody!
The only thing left to do though is to share a close-up of the look... The reason I wanted to do this is that the entire reason for creating the look - the titty chain - is so small that you can barely see it... So enjoy LOL...

What is she wearing;
Horns: Death Row Designs - Creature Horns in Darkness (Available now at Oh My Gacha)

Sitting on a Panda Chair

I wanted to just do a quick ramble about my favourite new item of furniture...
I bought this chair before Christmas but then it seemed to get caught up in all of my awesome new Christmas goodies and I didn't find it again until the weekend.
The Panda Chair from Intrigue Co perfectly fits into my house perfectly. As I've often said before, my house is like a children's play house and I am always on the look out for the perfect fun things to stash in there to play with.
So my outfit is just what I was wearing on the day I found it buried, my favourite new hair from Ploom called Chilly and a comfortable relaxing outfit including new tights from KOSH and a cute slogan top - from BOOM - that really reflects me at times, I feel. The slogan Slocially Awkward really seems to fit me in my SL, because when I am surrounded by SL MCs I always feel more than a little awkward.
It´s at times like that when I want to run and hide, and a HUGE chair like this would definitely make for the perfect hiding spot.

ImmateriAl MishMish...

I have never been very good at taking glamourous photos. Something a little crazy, yes! Something a little dark, yeah I guess so too! When it comes to taking photos of something glamourous, however, I personally feel I always find myself falling flat and not achieving the look I wanted. So recently, when I was passed this gorgeous dress and was asked if I'd like to become an official blogger for the store ImmateriA, I knew I couldn't say no but I also thought "argh crap, it's gorgeous how can I make myself look elegant!" My brain started whirring, I needed a plan of action and fast...
My plan of action became an image that reminded me of when I was little and I used to play dress up. OK so the photo is of an adult Rudh but the toys on the old chair definitely have my mind drifiting back to when I was little. The chair itself is a Rusted Crate Chair available from [N*11] at the Oh My Gacha event. I even, as I would have when I was younger, rested some cute toys in the form of a yumyums i-Lo bear and a cute Bunny Cafe Cup from Birdy - both of which are also available at Oh My Gacha too. Though I also couldn't resist using the new Nostalgia Jewelry Box from MishMish that you can pick up at the latest Collabor88 line-up. 
Then it was on to the outfit itself, I knew just what to wear as the whole reason behind my panic was this gorgeously, classy, vintage style dress from ImmateriA - called Stregoni -  in a pretty Azure colour but there are other colour combinations to choose from and each one comes with a long cigarette holder and gloves. I kept my accessories simple as I wanted the dress to take centre stage, and pulled on one of the deviousMind Lolita wristWraps in a storm colour design... 
I think I managed to pull off glamourous? Maybe just this once?

In the Candlelight...

Sometimes you get inspired by the little things, and those little things fall into place around bigger outfits that you are told to wear by certain family members, and when those things fall into place as you set the shot up perfectly and find the right lighting settings, it feels awesome! I had a moment like this while taking this photo, it was going great until drama happened around me and I had no choice but to sit still until I could have the shot completely ready and taken. I felt more than a little crappy after the words were dealt like punches BUT on the plus side, I have a really gorgeous photo out of it hehe...
I really do love this photo hehe... Personally it is one of my favourites for a long while. 
It started with the Dark Khione Dress from SAKIDE, that I kept glam with a pair of strappy heels from N-Core, and then went overboard with accessories hehe... OK maybe not overboard - not like I am wearing my entire jewellery box or anything. On my wrist I wore one of the Lolita Wristwraps from deviousMind - in a storm colour - that are available from the Oh My GACHA event, and while on the subject of the event, the Candle Crowns on my head - from The Plastik - can also be found here. I am wearing two different sets of candles as they come in various heights and colours, and I wanted to give it a two-tiered effect! My non-human side of me was clawing to get out during this photoshoot, and so I allowed it just a little by including a pair of horns - with chains - from Death Row Designs in the styling. Then we come to the difficult bit, the neck accessories hehe... I'll start with the most obvious! The fluffy is actually a neck warmer called Black Mop from RONSEM, and although striking on it's own I felt it missed something. Then I remembered the Wicked Collars from SongBird, which I wore for a little more of an evil queen - in a Disneyish way - look, but there was still something missing. I realised I needed just a little more pzazz and dug through my hoard, finally settling on a padlocked chain called Pop Lock & Drop from FAUX that is available at SL Fashion Week

Berry´s Memes are back for a New Year... YAY!

The morning ritual at work is I sit at my desk with a cuppa and look through all the pretty pics that people have posted on Flickr throughout the previous day! There are some amazing photography artists in SL and some of the fashionistas have me grabbing for my notepad! Though this morning as I was casting my tired eyes over the photos, I noticed one that made me happy dance in my seat... BERRY IS BACK WITH A NEW MEME!!! Luckily I was on my own in the office at the time or people might have thought I had finally lost it, but for me personally, Berry´s Memes will always help to keep my blogging mojo running and provide lots of entertainment while I answer her questions and provide crazy pictures!
So that was your first pretty, but somewhat random considering the theme of the post, picture for the New Year related post. I was thinking about following in Berry´s footsteps and working on something kind of snowy, but to be honest I don´t like snow that much, even in SL! Sure it´s pretty, but it always makes me really nervous but if anyone will fall over and hurt themselves you can be 90% sure that I will be the one to do it! So I went with something a little more my style hehe... I found a fun place to take pictures called Wasted - which is a dirty, post-apocalypic and destroyed oil refinery by the look of things - and pulled on a bad girl biker look...
Anyway, enough rambling Rudh... Time to get on with the important bit... THE QUESTIONS!
How did you spend New Year’s Eve? I spent at home with HellBone and our doggy, watching the crazy Dutch people celebrate. The fireworks were going off ALL DAY from about 10am and our dog was going crazy, so Hell and I were acting like a pair of silly buggers to stop her panicking. All was going fine until they played The Twist song - an oldie but still such a fun song - and Hell and I were dancing, then BAM our knees met and OUCH! LOL!
Did you keep any new years’ resolutions? Well, not this year. I used to always make resolutions and then would be majorly disappointed in myself for not sticking with them. So this year I decided to not think about it. Instead I plan on enjoying 2014 and not letting the issues that Hell and I went through in 2013 continue to affect us!
What was your biggest achievement(s) of the year? Hmmm achievements... I don't think there were many big achievements in the last year. There were lots and lots of little ones, but nothing major that stands out on it's own really.
What was the best thing you bought? The best thing I bought this year in RL has to be my house! HellBone and I are officially home owners! He actually owned the house with his ex and I bought her out of it, but still I bought a house in 2013! Makes me feel all grown up and kinda scares me a little. As for purchases in SL well that is a little more difficult, I am shopping all the time and each time these things become my favourite buys LOL...
What do you wish you’d done more of? I wish I'd seen my family more. Living in Holland is great but going months without seeing them can be hard. I mean talking to them on the phone or on skype is great, but nothing like actually being with them! There are plans for a tunnel - similar to the Eurostar Train Tunnel that runs from Paris to London - between London and Amsterdam... I wish they'd get that done faster LOL.
What do you wish you’d done less of? I think I am in agreement with Berry on this one, and will say that I wish I had done less worrying about the negatives that people had to say about me. I am slowly beginning to learn that no matter what people think, as long as I am enjoying myself and no one is getting hurt then the negative words of other people are just that... WORDS! They always say that there is no bad press, and that at least people are talking about you, and my mum always says people only say bad things because they are jealous of you. So from now on I plan on thinking more along the lines of "Thank You" when someone is being catty, rather than allowing myself to feel like what I am doing is not good enough or wrong.
What was your favorite movie you watched this year? What movie did I love this year... Hmmm that is a hard one because there have been a LOT! I cannot choose one new movie that I loved this year, but I will admit that my favourite movie I sat and watched this year was the same one I watch every year at Christmas - The Sound of Music. It became family tradition as it was on the television around the holidays when I was younger, and even now living on my own, I still found myself curling up to watch it on the TV whilst singing along and crying - as I used to do with my mum - when the mother superior nun sings "Climb Every Mountain" LOL...
What did you do on your birthday this year? My Birthday in 2013 was possibly one of my best ever! I think I've mentioned it before, but I'll share it again! HellBone and I spent it in EuroDisney - the Disneyland in Paris - as we'd just been through a crappy year financially and were finally not just afloat but were doing well. We spent my Birthday in the park, wearing Mickey Mouse ears, but it was when HellBone got down on one knee in front of the big pink Cinderella castle and thousands of people that made my day the best ever!
Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned. I need worry less about what people think and just be myself. I need to stop doubting my own abilities and have a little more confidence in me.
What does 2014 hold for you? Well a wedding for a start, but other than that I want to travel. I want to meet up with friends that I have met in SL and give them hugs in RL, but other than that I am looking forward to some - hopefully good - surprises!

My SL DisneyBounding - Donald Duck

I haven't had a chance to do this for a while but I feel like working on another SL DisneyBound look.
For those of you that need reminding, or if you are thinking "what the heck is she talking about?", the SL DisneyBound Challenge was started a good few months ago by Natalee Oodles and each week we had to create a look based around a chosen Disney Character.
The reason for this was that I have asked my big brother Javad to chose a character. Javad is a member of the family that I don't talk about all that often, although that doesn't mean I care about him any less... He also, in a weird way, reminds me a lot of the character he chose, though he might kill me for saying so hehe...
My SL DisneyBounding - Donald Duck
Donald is one of Disney's oldest and most recognisable characters, both from a visual and an audible stand point. Javad is fairly recognisable in a crowd too, though due to his looks only, as he never says much... There are a lot more similarities between the two too... Both are extremely loyal and will defend their loved ones no matter the reason, and are both willing to fight for what they believe in too... Though hearing him talk is very rare, I can honestly say that he is a little clearer than Donald - not much, just a little LOL...
So working on Donald Duck proved harder than I thought. He is one of those iconic Disney Characters, but at the same time somewhat harder to create in my own style than Mickey Mouse... I tried to keep it simple, but very Rudhified. Blue, however, is not a colour I wear often. I got lucky though because SAKIDE had released these gorgeous sparkly - or Glistening - dresses and the blue one really caught my attention. I added some white tights, with zippers up the back that you will have to believe me are there, from RezIpsa Loc and then began to accessorise - my favourite bit! So, I wanted white hair, so that it kinda represented the white feathers and I needed a hat... For some reason I was drawn to the Truth Jolene style complete with baseball hat - I don't know why! Hats and especially baseball caps have never really been a part of my everyday wear, but this seemed to fit somehow?! Then I went with a nautical theme on my jewellery, wearing a Sailor Necklace from KOSH and a Nautical Necklace from Cute Poison! I even pulled on some VERY old  duck feet slippers, sorry to say though that these are no longer available!
The last thing I needed to find was a location that suited Donald's Naval style, and I found the perfect place in the Steelhead Fishery with it's super cute little tugboats and slightly steampunk feel!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Jolene
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item)
Face Wounds: (Right Eye) Corvus - Scarred Face Tattoo, (Left Cheek) Corvus - Cheek Scars
Piercing: Cute Poison - Agelast Piercings (Past Event Item)
Necklaces: (Upper) KOSH - Sailor Necklace, AND, (Lower) Cute Poison - Nautical Necklace in Blue
Dress: SAKIDE - Glistening Dress in Blue

The Nymph of the Swamp

Time to bring a little more fantasy back into my ramblings. I feel I have been far to human me for a while now and I needed to find that inner fantasy sparkle again...I think I found it too, all thanks to a pretty hairstyle and a pair of horns... It's amazing what the combination of these two things can do for you hehe...
The pretty nymph started off heading in an icy direction but was pulled back towards water and eventually to our little swamp. After all every good swamp needs a water spirit to protect it right? Especially with all of those big scary bikers around!
The dress is actually a fairly simple one, something that I have had stashed away in my hoard since the summer... This Delhi Dress from SAKIDE is so cute and in multiple colours, it really does make for the perfect summer maxi dress! 
For the rest of the look I've decided to include a close-up so you can see the things I am rambling about more clearly hehe... 
 OK where to start...  Something small and kinda hidden... The Necklace! I've had this gorgeous necklace in my grubby mitts since before Christmas and I hate to admit that I had no idea how gorgeous it was. When you look at it up close the slides - or mini circles - are swirling with snowflakes! It was available as a hunt prize in the Gothmas by Candlelight Hunt, at AZE Jewelry, and although I hope it is still available I am not able to say for certain if it is still a prize or not. I will say that this is worth investing money in however, and with the different metal colours, it seems beyond gorgeous... Can I get one of these in RL please?
The hair with its dreadlocks, flowers and jewel come from Calico Ingmann Creations, and I have to say that I was more than a little impressed with it. Not to sound rude, but the last time I was playing with their hair I wasn't keen, it seemed kind of fluffy and flat all at once and I wasn't happy wearing it, but I saw this one on a blog and thought OOOH that looks pretty... and it REALLY does... I pulled on my new horns from 22769 that I simply love. They are gorgeous with their delicate pearls and not so delicate ropes... Such a good combination.

What is she wearing;
Hair, Hair Flowers & Jewel: Calico Ingmann Creations - Eira (Current Hunt Prize)

FreakyDesign Snoopy!

I used to hunt every day... I'd always be treasure hunting and became something of a pro trying to get in to at least two a week, but I've since stopped hunting like crazy and now will only add to my heaving inventory if it's something that is a must have...
The something that I wanted to share with you this time was the awesome hat from FreakyDesign... I LOVE this store, it's full of crazy and fun designs!
So the hat that looks remarkably like Snoopy, just happened to be the hunt prize that dragged me away from my home and into the SL outside world to go find it... I needed the hat, I couldn't go another day without it and it looks so good on me doesn't it? Hehe
