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...
