The dance of the Fae as they leave today...

The month draws to a close, and I have time for one last Horror Haute
post to bring a touch of the Dark Fae to my rambling space. Those pesky fairies have moved into the swampy home and made it their own causing all kinds of mischief, but today, on their last day they planned a small party to gather themselves in one place before the migration back to their own realm. 
The tea party is laid out on an "Into the Dark Woods" Table and Chairs set from La Maison des Corbeaux - a Horror Haute release by the way - with an exquisite set from the same store - that was a past release for The Witching Hour - is a Which Witch Tea Set... 
The fairies danced around it - using poses from dimma for the Dark Fae Set, both different styles but still part of a family...
The fae on the left is more of a warrior, with a little flair for elegance. The skins are part of the same set that I have used before for Horror Haute this month, a set from Stargazer Creations, and the hair is an old one from Magika... Her outfit is made up of a Ghost Story Grim Dress that she has teamed with a skirt to make an outfit from a ready made outfit that you can pick up from TLB.
To accessorise, she pulled on a pair of long black gloves, that are part of a set from AfterMath Creations, and a gorgeous collar from Chop Shop - which comes in a selection of 8 different colours! She even has two pairs of wings... One pair, the back from AfterMath Creations and the front from Brick-a-Brack, together seemed to make a very powerful radiant fae!!! 
The fairy wings from the second look are a part of the set that includes the Grim Dress from Ghost Story, I loved the dark demonic look to them... She wears a simple Brick-A-Brack Camisk Dress in a dark purple colour, with a matching Lillfolae Mask from Laudanum Lollipops, to shield her Dark Fae BLD eyes. 
The Dark Fae are now beginning to disappear into the mist, if you hurry to Horror Haute you may catch them, but there is a rumbling in the wind... Something dark may have left but it seems that a little magic has been left in it's place...

The Dark Fae are HERE for Horror Haute

OK OK I am running just a little late... RL snuck up on me and I almost ran out of time to play with the awesomeness that is HORROR HAUTE APRIL... This is one of those event rounds that I really did not want to miss, the Dark Fae were coming and now they are here causing all kinds of chaos... I almost missed it... They are still casting their magic... 
The Fenodyree Fae is a set from Stargazer Creations, that includes 4 different skins as well as all of the other accoutrements that make the perfect fae look... Of course me being me, I had to make a look out of random bits and pieces hehe... So with the skin, leaves and wings from the Stargazer Creations, I wore a dress from Livid called Queen Mab - this dress comes with a crown, sleeves and wings which are not worn here but are likely to make an appearance at a later date and a sparkle attachment which I DID wear hehe - I chose a collar from Chop Shop and a necklace from 7mad;Ravens - that isn't a Horror Haute Item but is in fact a Wayward Hunt Prize. 
To finish off the look I wanted a little more fantasy style so I poked my finger in my eye to add some Dark Fae eyes from SongBird and glued on some Dark Fae Horns from BLD... The look was complete! 
Only problem was my adorable little sister had left one of her ImmateriA Unseelie Court Headbands out for me to wear too... I love them, they are cute but not what this dark evil little fae wants to wear right now... Anyone want to borrow them?! 

What is she wearing;

A Surprise Rock Chick at the End Game of Enchanted...

I'm sorry that I have been so quiet recently, I've been really busy and stuck in RL without any way to check in-world on SL or even write anything on my blog space to let people know. I am back now, and ready to rock and roll again, so let's just dive back in... Tomorrow Fairies, today...
Another random look for me, well it's not a random look it's the kinda thing that I wear all the time lol but what is random is the way I've taken the photo... I just found a place I liked and a pose that kinda sorta went with it and BOOM... One pretty photo, one happy Rudh and some awesome things to show off to anyone who wants to read my ramblings hehe...
I guess the whole thing is kinda inspired by the Punk Rock theme that is taking place for Collabor88 this month. You can tell I really like the theme, I never really talk about the event until there is a theme that I enjoy, then I cannot shut up about it LOL... The Punk Rock theme has been one of those!
Before I talk about the look I pulled together for what could be my look of the day, I want to share with you The Enchanted... It looks to be a very, very, very cute hang out music place, full of mystery and pretty things to look at... Come check it out, I hope I have time to see it when there are people around!!!
The awesome guitar pose I chose to use fitted with the theme of the place perfectly I thought, and although the fair at which it was released is now over, you can still grab these Rock Chick Poses at Image Essentials Mainstore!
The outfit is an awesome pair of jeans from Pulse called End Game Pants - which you can grab at 100 Block now - but be careful as you put them on, the spikes that run down the legs are sharp... I finished off the legwear with an equally sharp high heels that are oldies but some of my favourites from drbc!
The top half I decked in some Ripped Anarchaic and Roxy style top from erratic, one of many colours available from Collabor88 this month by the way, and then attached a (Yummy) Punk Collar and my current favourite bracelets from katat0nik...
So tomorrow, FAIRIES! Today Rock Chicka, and I'm BACKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!

Welcome to the Rudhmellowen Freakshow!

I LOVE the theme of a dark carnival - never been a fan of clowns - but get me talking about a freakshow and I become like a giddy school girl. Maybe it's the living dead girl in me squealing with excitement, but I just cannot get enough of the dark canie theme when it comes to playing dress up.
In the last few days my love of playing dress up has been combined with the freakshow and thanks to the TAG! I now have an even bigger hoard and lots of fantastic things to play with...
Dollies and kittens were the name of the game for me this time around, although I went a little crazy buying a lot more than that hehe...
I love the adorable little kittens from Lassitude & Ennui. These are the Quirk & Co Kitties, and I have the Duncan MacTavish the Sword Swallower, Al-Epzi the Messtic and Vinny the Vendor here with me... I did get very lucky and won the RARE coupon prize too but she was already playing in my house and told me not to bother her when I asked her for a photograph! Just be careful of Vinny too, his fish smells a little whiffy!
It was the Dolls however that brought me out in a crazed frenzy of OH MY GOD I NEED THOSE! These are the Remarkable Oblivion Doll Maker Dolls. The dolls themselves are in a set of 6 different designs - with Iva Plague and Eyeris on show here - as well as a RARE Pram and Cabinet. I have ALL OF THOSE besides the mystery rare prize! I went a little crazy but these have to be the toys that appeal to me most in like, forever!!!
To go with these awesome goodies, so that I had something to wear as I posed with them, I dug around in my hoard and found this new - available for TAG! Gacha - outfit from Enfant Terrible. The Showstopper corset in Red, looked so adorable with the Star Garter that my gorgeous friend Lily won as the RARE Mystery Prize, and it looked SO GOOD for the freakshow carnival theme! What was even more surprising though was the rediscovery of the Half-Deer Patchwork Army stuff that I had stashed away... The Toy Soldier set was PERFECT for this look, complete with ears, tail and hat I knew that the look just needed shoes! Thank goodness for BAX Boots... No matter that they are non-Mesh, these Prestige boots still manage to give Mesh boots a run for their money in the looks department! Just a little accessorising... I pulled on two old but still awesome necklaces, one from The Forge - that higher rusty torc - and the second being a League Sideshow Necklace! See Oldies but still gorgeous!
Wanna come to the Rudhmellowen Freakshow? I promise we won't bite - much?!

What is she wearing;
Hat & Ears: Half-Deer - Patchwork Army in Toy Solider RARE
Hair: Magika - Surprise
Skin: Glam Affair - Lauren in America 07 (Past Collabor88 Item)

Time for some TV... Monday's Meme

Berry's Meme this week is all about TV!
I don't watch a lot of TV now days. I used to watch a heck of a lot when I was younger, but now I seem to find myself spending more time on SL than curled up in front of the TV. I will admit that there are a few shows that I, and my hubby, are addicted to... We never miss an episode of Vikings, we love Grimm, we can be seen laughing at some of the ghost hunting shows - such as Ghost Hunters and The Haunted Collector too - as well as some of the shows where they build awesome things like Treehouse Masters or Tanked, he loves The Walking Dead but for me if I had to pick just ONE TV series that would be the only thing I was allowed to watch it would be Supernatural EVERY TIME!
Supernatural is one of those shows that just caught my attention and clung to it...
Following the lives of brothers Dean and Sam Winchester, the story unfolds as they fight monsters, their own personal demons, and well a few 'real' demons along the way. It's a little like one of those good versus evil plots, with a few major kinks in the good/evil plan!
The photo I've put up for this is not featuring them, although perhaps I will add one too, but it in fact features their car, a 1967 Chevrolet Impala, known amongst fans as the "Metallicar" due to the style of music that is always on the radio within. This car has become one I'd crave owning in the RL world, luckily my hubby made one in SL for me to at least pretend and you can get you're own version at his store Hogs & Cart Wheels, only problem is that it is missing the two hottest car accessories known to man... Dean and Sam Winchester!

What is in the photo;
Car: H&C Wheels - Metallicar

I'm Bringing Sexy Blocks...

Pose makers in SL are many in number, I know a few and have two or three that provide many of the poses I use in every day photography. It seems that many bloggers and photographers will have their favourite places to go when they need to get poses, I know that this is most certainly the case for me! I have no shame in telling you that my two favourite pose stores in SL would be Signature Pose and Image Essentials! 
In fact Image Essentials is the reason that I am here to talk about poses right now... I got sent some awesome poses, released for Black Fashion Fair, in simple positions based around building blocks...
The Sexy Blocks I chose to showcase these new pose props purely and simply because I had some new lingerie I wanted to share with you too... That's why poses are so important - although often understated - without them it would be much more difficult to take good photos! YAY FOR THE POSE MAKERS! In this case, YAY FOR KAY WESTON!! 
Let's take a look at the lingerie that caused me to use Sexy Blocks shall we?
The set is from NITELY and is called Dark Desires, you can get your hands on this at Suicide Dollz - may favourite event, perfect for the living dead dollies that want to look just a little bit naughty! For the rest of the look it was purely accessories... 
Working from head to toe, I pulled on a pair of Mamut Pilot Headphones which looked adorable with the Magika wig called The Wish. I kept the Katat0nik Bow Wrist Straps on - I haven't taken these off since I bought them at Collabor88 a week or so ago - likewise with the Cute Poison Elysian Ring - which by the way has a matching headdress if you are in the group as a free gift!
Then as a finishing touch, I pulled on my favourite pair of sexy heels from HOLLYHOOD called Lolisa! Perfect... The perfect look to talk about Sexy Blocks, dontcha agree? 

What is she wearing;
Headphones: Mamut - Pilot Headset M150 in White 
Hair: Magika - The Wish 
Skin: Glam Affair - Lauren in America 07 (Past Collabor88 Item) 
Eyelids: SLINK - Mesh Eyelids Photo Prop 
Nose Piercing: DirtyStories - Heart Nose Piercing (Past Suicide Dollz Item)

The Dark Fae are Coming...

There is a whispering in the wind, a fizzing in the air, a darkness is slowly creeping over the land... You can feel your mind starting to go blank - if it wasn't already - and that whispering becomes a giggle...
I come with a warning to you my good friends... The Dark Fae are coming!!! Horror Haute this month will be welcoming them in, allowing them to take control of our minds, and WE are powerless to resist... Remember to watch over your shoulder, during the last week of April they are here to get you!
I'm talking about Horror Haute, and the fact that the upcoming round - due to start Thursday April 23rd - is based on the theme of Dark Fae! It was decided that it might be fun to have some form of promotional poster to wet the whistle and get us into the right frame of mind, and so as blogger manager I have taken on that task! Not that I mind, it's even more excuse to play dress up! You can see the complete poster - with text on my Flickr, but here I wanted to focus on the imagery!
The location of this photograph is one of my favourite places to explore at the moment, it's the Grand Duchy of Picklemoon, and really if you haven't been here then you should go check it out!! I mean it, go now!!
Now I have to remind you, that none of the items worn here will be available for the upcoming release of Horror Haute, this is just to get people in the mood!! Please don't kill me if you cant find these things as you thought they were Horror Haute items...
But while I am talking about outfits, let's just discuss what it is that made up my Dark Fae look today, shall we?!
The skin is a past HH release, from Stargazer Creations, that was part of the just past Plague round as was the Left Eye from Laudanum Lollipops and a lot of the other things I'm wearing were past event releases that have since moved back to their main store locations. such as the Unseelie Wings from Soul Distraction, the dyed:peony Sakura face strap and theSkinnery Demonic Right Eye. A few other items are still available at their special events, such as the Exile "Flying Over the Dateline" Hair which you can grab at this round of Collabor88 and the Kinky Bunny Pose from Signature Pose that I used - which is available now at Pose Me Amazing! The majority of the other things that I haven't yet mentioned though come from the Xiasumi School Festival! The Schadenfreude Sakura Mori Neo Kanzashi hair piece is GORGEOUS, but it was in fact the antielle items, there was the freebie Third Eye Wound which was awesome to find as a surprise, whilst I was there to grab the Kuchisake Onna! 
Whatever happens, beware the dark fae are coming... Horror Haute is coming... Are you ready?! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Exile - Flying Over the Dateline in Fantasy 1 (Available now at Collabor88)

Who wants to work when you can SHOP?!

A few days ago now I was digging around in my overly large hoard wondering what the heck I was going to wear. It got me thinking back to when I was still fairly new in SL. Back then I would change an outfit EVERYDAY without fail... I would spend hours doing it and then wear it for a few hours before changing it the next day and going through the ritual over and over again... Nowdays I am a little more lazy LOL, I tend to change every few days - it still takes me a while to change however - but it gives me more options as I keep shopping and things pile up ready to be worn hehe...
Sometimes though an outfit that I have waiting to be discovered will surprise even me!
This was one of those times! Still as it was coming together I had a strange idea in my head and once I was done dressing I guess I hit the nail on the head as my little brother Athrun nonchalently asked me "Why do you look like you're going to seduce the boss?!" LOL... I then spent a while searching for the perfect office type location, and will admit that it got a little boring when I couldn't find what I was looking for, so I gave up and went shopping! Checking out random places I've not been to before is always fun, I discovered the Fashiowl Poses store and well the street setting was just too cute not to be a high powered business woman on a well earned shopping break photo LOL...
So yes, I am kinda shocked myself to see Rudh in a suit! It's a look that normally I wouldn't even have thought about but when I saw it on sale at Fi*Friday for the whopping amount of 55L I just didn't want to kick myself later for not grabbing it when I had the chance. These Frankie Suits should now be available at the main HOLLYHOOD store, not sure about the low price though!
I teamed my suit with some simplish but dead sexy heels from Bens Boutique - called Nicky - and then gave the chic look a quirky "Rudhish" twist by adding a Timeless Bag from Zenith, and I liked the look, there was just one problem. I wanted to make it look a little more Rudh-like, a little fiercer perhaps... Thank goodness for [ abrasive ] and dimma! The former made this simple but somewhat kinky looking Loose Belt Choker - that I may need to go get the rest of the colours of hehe - and the latter created the Deep Corners Liner set... PERFECT!
Now all I need is a boss to seduce and I will be a happy girl... Anyone need a secretary? LOL!

Hair: Exile - Flying Over the Dateline in Naturals (Available Now at Collabor88)

In and out of the shadows...

Time for a little bit of honesty I think... I hope no one gets offended by it or upset in any way however, and I really do not mean to sound like a snob or rude!
As a blogger, and I AM NOT COMPLAINING AT ALL by the way, you sometimes get sent things that you look at and wonder 'what the heck am I going to do with that?' This tends to be the case with me, especially if I do not really like something, or if I feel uninspired at the very least.
I've always tried to be a positive blogger, and feel that no matter what someone will like something even if I don't, and that having been said I wanted to share with you two things - that from one release - by Consignment, which I both really love and don't have too strong a set of feelings for all at once.
The items in question come from this month's round of Collabor88 - in the Consignment booth... The theme of the event is punk rock and I've already said I round around it not being able to get my wallet out fast enough lol... Consignment had two releases for the event...
The Skull Pot Plants are the items that I loved! I don't know why but they really tickled my imagination. I mean there have been some interesting uses for skulls in our ancestral history, but this one is such a good idea I'm surprised people didn't think of it sooner LOL!
It is the other item that I am not so keen on however... These Wrapped Stools do come in a variety of different colours, but for some reason - and I know not what it is - they just do not get the fire going under me like a lot of other Consignment creations. They are very well made, and very stylish in a minimalistic way and are stuffed with lots of great poses, and they'd look great in a modern setting, but they are just totally not my taste... Still if you love them, they are still available at Collabor88, don't miss out!!!
While on the subject of Collabor88 though, let me point out my dress... The r2 Sakura Dress is one of the best PVC textures that I have seen in SL for a long time. I love the way that the reflections of light look natural with movement, and other people seem to love the clear textures for totally different reasons too hehe...
I kept the accessories simple though, some thigh-high spiked DRD Limited Boots, a Punk Collar from (Yummy) and some Bow Wrist Straps from Katat0nik, as well as a simple but very cute girlie hairstyle from Truth called Octavia, and the look was complete!
All in all I am happy with what I came up with and hope that you like it too, sorry Wavie, I LOVE your creative mind but the stools don't quite do it for me...

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Octavia
Skin: Glam Affair - Lauren in America 07 (Past Collabor88 Item)
Face Wounds: Utopiah - Excessive Pain Makeup
Nose Piercing: DirtyStories - Heart Nose Piercing (Past Suicide Dollz Item)
Lip Piercing: Cute Poison - Frosted Piercing
Collar: (Yummy) - Punk Collar in Silver and Black (Available Now at Collabor88)
Dress: r2 - A/D/E Sakura in Black (Available Now at Collabor88)

Boots: DRD - Limited Collection Bootz in Black (Past Event Release)
Stool: Kuro & Consignment - Black Wrapped Stool (Available Now at Collabor88)

In the Witching Hour, we make SOUP!!

The Witching Hour is ALMOST over, today is the last day for this month's pretties, and there are some cute things that you may be sad to miss if you haven't seen them already...
Talking of cute though, the little witch in me was feeling a little hungry this morning, and what better way to start your day than with a balanced breakfast... SOUP for breakfast!! Not just any soup however, being this cute take's a LOT of work, and I am not able to bathe in milk like Cleopatra did. Instead I will sometimes make a lovely soup of cute fluffy stuffed animals... 
It's great for the skin and will add that extra touch of sparkle!!! 
To make Plushie Soup, get yourself a HUGE bubbling cauldron - preferably one that has already got the taste of magic on it like the Hocus Pocus Cauldron from elephante Poses - and then add the plushies of your choice... Today I am adding a touch of The Sugar Garden Lop Eared Bunny and a little Afterlyfe Moon Kitty - which you can grab yourself on sale at The Witching Hour depo! I may also add a touch of Mewnicorn as I have a very magnificent example from Lassitude & Ennui - though it's begging me not to, offering me flowers and it is so cute I might just keep it! Not sure that my familiar Shouldercrawler cat MiaMai will appreciate that but oh well, tough titties! 
That was the recipe, but some of you witchy fashion fans my also be wondering about my outfit today... Isn't it gorgeous... 
I'm wearing my old faithful Remarkable Oblivion hat, but the rest of me is different! I have a cute purple wig from Lamb, in the Miss Mabel style, and it matches PERFECTLY with my new skin's lilac make-up - get the new skins from yumyums at IDK by the way! The outfit itself though is a gorgeous new creation from Stargazer Creations - one of the best places to by fantasy wear in my opinion - the range of colours this look comes in is just gorgeous... Each one gem like in tone! Each one, not so coincidentally - has a matching magical ring available from ImmateriA, and both items are available at the CYOT event! Just brace yourself, these rings are flippin' powerful! I nearly knocked myself out with it hehe... 
UH OH!!! OH DEAR OH DEAR OH DEAR!!! Looks like we have a problem... The smell of the soup has awoken something dark and enchanting! RUN RUN RUN Watch Out, they are COMING!!! (Stay tuned to find out what I am gabbling about hehe...)

Let the Boat rock!

The summer is coming, and that seems to be - in Holland at least - a good reason to get on your little boat and go, well... boating! Personally I am NOT the kind of person that finds that appealing, in either life, but there are a few times that I could possibly make an exception - such as the upcoming SAIL event when I won't be stepping onto a boat but will enjoy watching thousands of them sail by. or when that boat has been turned into a comfy garden recliner perhaps?!
Just like this one actually!!! Funny how that happens huh? You're talking about something and then miraculously it appears LOL...
This boat won't be going anywhere fast though, safely resting on a bank of rocks, the poor boat would need to get through a ton of swamp weed before it could hit open water... Better that it stays as a sofa like this right? The Boat being discussed, is a Consignment original, made with the same gorgeous attention to details that Mr Haller always includes, this boat can be with or without the fishing net decor and with a range of colours as accessories too!
The outfit was what I just happened to be wearing at the time, and I am pleased to say it makes the perfect relaxation look hehe... It was so simple and comfy yet still stylish looking, I lazed about like this for a few days LOL... The top is an old favourite from Razor, but the pants are a just passed release from NS for the past round of Cosmopolitan. These pants are brilliant! They come with a Hud so you don't just get one colour, you get a selection of colours and patterns, PLUS a free top too! Free is such a lovely word isn't it?
To complete the somewhat hippyish look, I wore one of my favourite new hairstyles - Runaway's Talice Hair and then finished it completely by adding these adorable, retro Fabulous Shades in leopard print from LE FORME!!! I don't normally go for animal prints but I think they pull the look together nicely don't you?! Perfect for going boating, or just lazing in a boat in the garden hehe...

Decisions, Decisions...

Sometimes I will admit that I would LOVE to have someone to help me decide on certain aspects of my outfit. I mean you find a look then try to match it with accessories, or you find a hair style and try to make it fit an outfit, but sometimes I spend such a long time looking at two completely different things and wondering which I want to wear that I end up not bothering at all... Shoes are a prime example of this... 
This month for The Witching Hour was a prime example of this... Two amazingly cute sets of shoes are on offer and I was having such a hard time working out which ones I wanted to wear. 
One shoe was a ruby red high heel called Magic Dust Corset Pumps from AfterMath Creations, the other a summery flat with a gorgeous rainbow Astro Dolly pattern from Stargazer Creations
The best thing for me to do is to ask someone for help... When no one is around I ask the helpful hand on a plate, the All Seeing Hand, from Lilith's Den
All of these things are gacha prizes at this month's round of The Witching Hour, and as always they come in a myriad of different colours and patterns for the low price of 50L per try!!!

Bring Him Back Please

I bought a dress a couple of weeks ago now that is SO FAR from my usual style of outfit choice that I was left wondering why I did it... I mean I LOVED the dress it was super cute but then what was I going to do with it?! It was one of those impulse buys that left me a little flummoxed! BUT don't get me wrong I still loved it and it looked better on me than on the hanger too... Just what to do with it... 
I decided to play dress up and went for a pretty retro look! 
Like a pin-up girl left waiting for her sailor boyfriend, I posed with the awesome Coin Operated Binoculars from Consignment and waited patiently for my hero to come home! 
The dress in question was one that I grabbed at a past round of Cosmopolitan - it has since changed but I'm sure these dresses will be available at the mainstore - and it comes from the store Kaithleen's. The Frock Dresses are available in a number of different summery colours, each covered with pretty polka dots... I love polka dots!!! Beware though, if you are a little shy you might want to remember to wear panties with this dress! 
The one thing missing was SHOES! Luckily I had an almost perfect colour match with some similarly retro shoes... The Katat0nik Wing Tip Pumps were almost a perfect match for the colour of the sash on this dress! YAY!!! 
Now, if me in this dress isn't a wonderful welcome home gift for my sailor... I'm sure I could find another of his crew that might appreciate it, don't you think? Hehehe

Saved by a Demon Angel

I count myself very lucky in SL... The people around me are more often than not better than any therapist could be. They make me laugh, and they pick me up when I fall, but there are very few that I can go to with absolutely any problem and know that they won't judge and will give me honest advice and opinions.
Deangelo is one of those people... He may not agree, and may tell me off for ruining his reputation, but since I've known Dean he's been a bit of a rock to me. I first met Dean way way way back in history, and unfortunately for him, he is now able to say he is one of my oldest - and still active - friends!
It seems funny to see him posed as an angel - some might say he is anything but angelic, but I suppose that gentlemanly aspects of him could be considered fitting?! He has saved me many times from my own emotions - sometimes I do tend to be overly emotional lol - but more than that he makes a pretty good model when I need someone to pose LOL...
This pose is the reason that I created the photo in the first place, it's a release from Signature Pose called Save Me... It was just too romantic not to use, and saying that makes me laugh that I didn't use Hell in the photo LOL...
Thanks for being there for me Dean and thank you for parking your avatar then going to make some tea! You're such a hero hehe!!!
