Time to Set Sail...

"Yo Ho, Yo Ho, a Pirate's life for me"... Oh wait, wrong kind of sea faring outfit, dammit... Are there any good songs for sailors?! The only one that springs to mind is something about Popeye, and that's just not ladylike LOL... 
Let's move on from that shall we though and I will get all excited, as per usual, about something that happened and something that I had to play with! 
OK the something that happened part goes a little like this... I was contacted by a designer I've worked with for Horror Haute in the past, she was like would you be interested in this, I get a picture, I'm like HELL YES, and the rest... Well you can see that below hehe... 
The dress was one of a myriad of different patterns from The Untitled, for their new dress release called Life in Mono... OK so the pattern name of Ahoy was what lead me down a dark path into Sailordom, but all of the designs are just as equally gorgeous and would be perfect staple pieces in any closet. I keep rambling about staple pieces, but I am a strong believer in having a core collection of basics that you can dress up or down or match to an outfit! Then just for a little added fun I decided to wear a cute Ahoy Sailor Cap that you can get yourself from BOOM - it's an older sculptie creation but they are still available on the Marketplace if you cannot find them in the store! Just one more thing was needed, the perfect location... I found it, on a dock amongst the boats at Cutter's Cove
There are other things too that will deserve an honourable mention in this post... The tattoos that I am wearing have become my current all the time design - only replaced by wounds when I am in a bleeding mood - these are Identity Tattoos called First Code and are currently available at Suicide Dollz. My necklace is also something that needs to be mentioned, it's YUMMY isn't it?! You can get one now at No.21 and it's decorated in re-purposed charms!

The Last Flower for the Spirit Flames

I LOVE FLOWERS... No matter what they are, I love the colour, the scents, the varieties... In the last few days in RL, I've been bought a gorgeous dark purple clematis and a HUGE bunch of sunflowers just because people wanted me to feel happier whilst I'm sick with a cold. 
Then I found this photo I had taken featuring an item from The End and it made me feel a little sad... 
The item in question is this amazing wall décor from Consignment, called The Last Flower - in Jack's Bugout Shelter. It got me thinking how would I feel if there were no more flowers?! It made me feel kinda melancholy, hence the very dark image... For me flowers mean a lot of things, it's beauty, it's nature, it's happiness in a way... If there were no more flowers, would there be a lot less smiles?! 
Damn I'm really in a melancholy mood this morning aren't I?
Luckily the Spirit Flames, those lost souls that perished in The End, are able to cast a little light, making things brighter. You can grab you're own set for Spirit Flames from Paper Moon at Genre this month. Take a trip to the underworld, take the last flower with you and you never know perhaps it will make you take a smile with you too!!!

The Lady of the Lake

Another post, another Mermaid based look, and a promise that soon I will be back to making all kinds of random things again very soon!!! This time I'm not a salt water mermaid, if that makes any bit of difference to you LOL... Right now I am a Lady of the Lake!!! 
This look came about purely and simply because I had been sent another AMAZING fantasy skin from Stargazer Creations - seriously Aggie feeds my addiction to play dress up something crazy, not that I'm complaining LOL - and it as ALL of her skins is so gorgeous... Blended perfectly, with a subtle sparkle and a cleavage that you could get lost in, I am totally in awe of these designs every time I try one on...
Then I ran into a small snag... What the heck would the lady of the lake wear?! LUCKILY Collabor88 was another one of those events that was working with a watery theme... (fashionably dead) came to my rescue, with their amazing Dorothy dress in a magical green!! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Essena (Current Subscriber Gift) 
Skin: [Stargazer Creations] - Sprite of the Lake (Available soon at Medieval Fantasy Fair)
Dress: (fashionably dead) - Dorothy Dress in Green (Available Now at Collabor88
Pose: Image Essentials - Sexy 3 

Hopeful Tidings at The Lexi Project

Today will be a day of mermaids for me... I don't know how but I have been acting a little fishy a LOT lately... It's nothing new, I mean throughout my SL time I've been either a Fae, a Vampire or a Mermaid when playing dress up - before settling on the living dead dolly I am now - but at the moment there seems to be a lot of focus on the fishy folk hehe... 
This mermaid me is not just for fun though, she's also a charitable hero - raising money to help someone in need... There is a charity event in SL at the moment called The Lexi Project - raising money to help Lexi Zelin - owner and creator of AngelRED Couture - who recently had a rather nasty medical diagnosis and now faces mounting medical bills... To read more, I would recommend you check The Lexi Project's website and then go check out the over 300 SL designers who are donating 100% of their sales to help!!
The mermaid look I am wearing today started out as two different items that were a kinda sorta collaboration between two stores that I love blogging for... 
The skin is one from Stargazer Creations, and like all of Aggie's skins, this one is beautiful... Well thought out, perfectly decorated with it's magical swirling pattern and such a vibrant, jewel-like shade too... I will be hard pushed to find fantasy skins from anywhere else that I like as much!! 
The other part of the collaboration is everything else I'm wearing with the exception of my eyes and hair LOL... Made by ImmateriA the Hopeful Tidings Mermaid Outfit includes heaps of stuff - tail, cape, hat and jewellery, not to forget the bra too... It like the Stargazer skin is so beautifully textured that it shows how much time and effort Naenia puts into her designs. 
Both of these things are being offered as 100% donation items at The Lexi Project, and these are just the very tip of the iceburg... There are heaps and heaps more gorgeous things to check out, so head on over and help Miss Zelin... Get something, Help someone, it will make you smile I promise!

Hair: Blues - Lunaire (Past Freebie at Hair Fair 2015)

Sweet, Sugar, Candy Dog

One of the coolest things about summer for me when I was growing up was the Summer Fetes... Fetes tend to be like mini festivals, filled with local performers, local goods and fun and games - one year I even won a goldfish at the fete in our local village LOL... 
In SL these events seem to be more like festivals or carnivals, and that's SO COOL!!! These places can be awesome areas to hang out with friends and family, as well as perfect shopping places and even better photographers backdrops... I know I spent a good while taking pictures at the Wayward Carnival... So much to see and do there and the goodies you can grab are awesome!!! 
I took this awesome photo outside the sweet store, when I bought myself my surprising cotton candy - candy floss for those English people out there, it's taken me AGES to remember it's called Cotton Candy not Candy floss LOL... This is a release from Black Bantam - something I think is connected with another fairly well known brand, Pink Acid I believe?!
The dress however, is not a Wayward Carnival purchase... This one is available at The Instruments from ImmateriA. It is simple, it is pretty, and the textures used in the various different colours are so pretty... The Instrumental theme this month is very vintage, and the ImmateriA dresses fit perfectly within theme, but they would also be perfect for all kinds of other styles and events... Whoever said that things should be stuck in just one category style... Don't miss these dresses, as a staple in your wardrobe they would be ideal!!! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Doe - Noya Rigged Two-Tone in Monotone (Past Event Release) 
Skin: Glam Affair - Lauren in America 07 (Past Collabor88 Item)

The Work of a Magician

Recently I met someone in SL that I can actually say seems like a true Magician... I'd seen his art on Flickr, and I'd even met people that had photos by him but it was my sister Solde that introduced me to his photos... More like little works of art, the man behind these beautiful creations is Skip Staheli - owner of Purple Cows Photo Studio... 
His work is amazing and has the ability to evoke emotion, but having never been one to pay for photos I thought a photo of Rudh by Skip would be out of reach... Until one day when Solde told me I would be having a photo appointment with the magician photographer!!! 
She told me, everything had been handled, all I needed to do was find myself a killer outfit!!!! That's just what I did, and then the day came around and I was like an overly excited fan girl... 
Mr Staheli put me right at ease and was given full control. He asked some simple questions, trying to find out what I would like, to which I answered him about being like a dead dolly, and that although I can be bright colours I'd more often be something sad. Then he began to play with me... The resulting photo being the small shot above. When I saw this I thought, UGH how can anyone make that look like something amazing... I needn't have worried, Skip Staheli worked some AMAZING magic and look at the outcome!
Isn't it totally freaking gorgeous?! Sadness with a hit of something being planned and a twinkle in her eye hehe... He's called the picture "Not Made of Stone" maybe because I was saying I was always a dead girl, but perhaps he could see the life in me hehe?! He tweaked and manipulated me in a way that makes it look like an amazing version of me LOL...
Needless to say, I'm in love with this photo hehe... Thank you Mr Staheli!!! You've made me look beautiful... Thank you to Solde too, I wouldn't have this amazing artwork without you!!! *hugs*

A Guide in the Dark

This morning is one of those dark and rainy mornings, the kind where you feel like you want to do nothing more than stay curled up in bed and hide... Unfortunately it's Monday morning and that means it's a work day... I'm not sure how lucky it is, but looking at the weather I feel kinda lucky that I can hide at home and work here however... SO P.J Day for RL me it is... Rudh on the other hand?!?
Rudh is going to be a guiding light in the darkness today... Part angelic, Part destroyed - well it actually sounds like a pretty normal day for her LOL... I will tell you though, that this would have to be one of my favourite photos that I've created in recent weeks... I LOVE the outfit, the location, the lighting, everything!!! I wonder if you agree?!
I may have mentioned it before but I am going to say it again... As soon as I saw these wounds on someone on Flickr I HAD to have them... I know that I get like that a lot but seriously these were like a light in the dark I NEEDED these!!! The wounds, along with one on my face, my white eyes and chapped lips, are part of a collection from antielle for The Epiphany... (That's the place you can trade items for an exclusive remember?! Now you see why I was able to get the exclusive I NEEDED the rare antielle item lol).
It's not only the wounds that come from The Epiphany however, this Angel's Halo is a CerberusXing Halo called Tsukiyomi, as well as her outfit and staff - which are May's Soul - can also be found at this event in the clouds... See told you she was an Angel, she bought her things in the clouds hehe...
The last thing I wanted to mention with this photo was the location... I've talked about the sim design team before when I mentioned a location called The End of the World as we know it, but the Lick Sim Designs now have a new sim called The McFly Project. Based on the thought of time travel you start in somewhere that looks abandoned and wander through tunnels to a futuristic landscape, and BLIMEY it's awesome... I really love the tunnel system, they feel so realistic!!!
Check it out, check out Epiphany and if you get lost, call for a guide in the dark!!!

Skin: Glam Affair - Lauren in America 07 (Past Collabor88 Item)

Time for a Banner Update...

It's time for a little change around here, nothing major but a little update perhaps!?! 
The current banner since August 2011 has been one that I put a lot of time and effort into making, and has been something that I think of as a symbol of my blog. I wanted it to be random and show just how random and rambling things would be... The things contained under this banner are all the little details of me... You've seen me laugh, cry, sing, scream and I think that one time, way back in the blogs history you may have even seen my RL face... BUT for now dear banner, I have decided to put you into a retirement... It's time to spruce things up...
Similar in theme with the crazy letters to represent everything crazy like the crazy things I talk about... The rainbow showing just how much I love to play with colours and still have a dark edge... 
I'm going to set it as my blog banner for a few days and test how I like it, but what do you think?! 

The Mermaid Epiphany

Today is all about an Epiphany... Not just any epiphany... THE Epiphany... 
If you haven't heard, there is a new type of gacha event in town, and although it is as addictive as the various other events, this one has a bit of a twist... This time, you're able to trade in any unwanted items to earn points for special exclusives... I LOVED this idea, when I went to the event there were a few sets I HAD to have, so that meant I had plenty of things I could trade in... I was so excited, and OK I spent a fortune but the goodies were so worth it, and I have no need to worry about how to get rid of the things I don't want too YAY!!! 
One of the stores that has items available at the event is a fairly new-ish store called lunaBeam... The items from this store had me re-living childhood dreams... This time I was actually able to do something about them hehe... 
When I was little, and usually on a holiday with my parents, I had a dream of being a mermaid... Not just any mermaid, THE Mermaid, the one that Disney made famous lol... I wanted to be Ariel so much that sometimes when we were on holiday my sister and I would have fights about who was going to play Ariel LOL - the things you fight about when you're 7 or 8 LOL - but now, thanks to lunaBeam, I can re-live that childhood dream and play at being Ariel on the beach here in SL hehe... 
These sets are brilliant, at The Epiphany, you can win bikinis, hair accessories and flippers to match the colours of ALL of Ariel's sisters, with the rare items being those to match Ariel herself. Of course, I wasn't going to take being any of the other mermaids, I HAD to be Ariel, but I needed a companion... In the gacha you can also win rubber rings that are coloured to look like Sebastian and Flounder - BUT I chose this opportunity to go and grab myself another one of the awesome models from Characteristics!!! 
Anyway, as well as the awesome mermaid based items, at The Epiphany there is a special area in which designers have placed items that you can trade unwanted goods in for something awesome... So that you're aware, it's 25 points needed to trade in and you get one point per item or three points if the item is a rare! 
The trade-in item from lunaBeam is brilliant... Similar in style to the mermaid items but if you choose to trade-in for this set you get an URSULA themed set. Bikini - with sea witch tentacles - hair accessory coral and shell necklace, you too can be the wicked witch of the sea... Of course as Ariel was up playing on the beach I had to let Ursula play too, and she's been accessorising with fish bones today hehe... One in her !Ohmai hair - a donation of 30% of the sale of this style goes to help raise money for Wigs for Kids - and one in her special Skellyfish Balloon - from Half-Deer that can be yours for free if you hunt at Origami
Question for you now is, which of the Little Mermaid's sisters will you be?

The close of the Fair, it's Bandana Day...

Today is the last day of one of the biggest events in the SL shoppers calendar... Hair Fair 2015 closes it's doors for another year tomorrow - July 26th - and that day is always marked by a VERY special theme for the day... BANDANA DAY!!
Anyone entering Hair Fair should remove their hair and replace it with a gorgeous bandana to show some solidarity to those suffering for the cause we're all working for... The entire reason behind Wigs for Kids - the Hair Fair's chosen charity - is that they are raising money to buy wigs for children who lose their hair due to medical treatments... 
One day a year, at the close of Hair Fair, why not have a bandana day?!
If you don't have a bandana, there are lots of booths around the sims where you can pick one up... All of the bandanas that are available at the Fair are 100% donation items for the event charity, and at only 50L a pop it's not a lot to raise some funds for something so awesome! This is one that was designed by Boudicca Amat called Viola... 
I added a HUGE magnolia bloom from LODE to the headdress to make it look even more flamboyant, and then it was time to get to work with make-up and eyes and things... It was at this moment that for some reason my brain got carried away with me, I was in weird Rudh mode, when I started thinking I'd make some flower based magical being hehe... I added eyes from antielle and Katat0niK - a collaboration made in heaven if you ask me - and some make up from Stargazer Creations... It was so much fun to do something crazy today... 
Why don't you have a Bandana Day?! 

What is she wearing;

Hair Fair but Not Hair?!

As Hair Fair 2015 draws to a close - with it's doors shutting firmly on July 26th - I decided to take a few quick moments to draw your attention to it again, and point out some awesome things you may have missed from the event... 
It wasn't only hair that was given away as awesomely fab freebies from the event... Whilst running around I found some seriously cool goodies - including a sushi chef pig in the !Ohmai stand - but if you haven't been in to Hair Fair yet, now is your chance!
It was surprising that there were some awesome freebies that weren't hair related, but I will say that the actual hair that I am wearing in this photo is a Hair Fair purchase. The hair is a LeLutka style, with a 15% donation going to the Hair Fair charity Wigs for Kids, and I just love the dip dyed look to it...
The rest of my outfit though is made up of Hair Fair Freebies!!! The dress is a dual coloured one - that's called Cosima in a Pink Lemonade colour - from [Decoy], the sunglasses are LeLutka, and I have not just one but two hair bands on hehe... The smaller front one with the writing is a gift from Phoenix, which comes in a number of different words, and the larger one - the set of ears really - is a kitty hairband from Mystic Tiger
Don't miss your chance to grab these freebies, and really don't miss your chance to check out this year's Hair Fair... I think I have just one more post in me tomorrow, but this will be a special one!!!

I'm on my Knees, please Help me Stay Alive

"I'm becoming afraid, it's already too late, 
I'm on my knees, please help me stay alive... "
Lyrics from a song by Crown the Empire, that when I was running around dressed in an outfit that HellBone told me I shouldn't wear around the bikers, made the urge  to do something a little naughty stronger, and BOY did I get the look I was going for... The song was the one that I had playing in the background and I think it helped me to channel a victim style feeling LOL... Yet it was the look and the location that inspired this photo, both are a little risque, but oh-so-much fun hehe... 
So as the line of the song says I'm on my knees LOL... The pose is one from Signature Pose and it isn't part of the scenery, but it just fitted so perfectly... The victim being held in place by a magnetic force in the laboratory of a mad scientist...Least that's the look I was going for! The location is not one for the faint of heart though, it is a place that has a VERY rude name and use too actually - the location is called Get Fucked, so I will leave you to imagine what goes on there... Though it was empty when I went in, phew!
The outfit is one that I am in love with, and have worn a LOT - Hell is OK with it so long as I'm not around the biker boys or something LOL... I wore one of the newer releases from r2 fashions called Gekka. I LOVE the way that Rikka - the store's owner - seems to do magical things creating that perfect PVC look, especially the transparent PVC.
After finding the perfect outfit though, it was simple to scart accessorising - a pair of over the knee boots from BAX, a BabyDoll blindfold and some simple jewellery from (Yummy) and tapi, and this little captive of the mad scientist was ready to try to break free...
On a parting note today, while this little victim tries to break free, I think I should share with you the song that helped me inspire this photo... It's an older song but still an awesome one, Ladies and Gentlemen, Crown the Empire's song "Voices"...

What is she wearing;
Hair: SpellBound - Peaches in B Chapter I: Earth (Past OMGacha Release)

Thirsty Vampires use the Blood Bank

If you know me at all by now you will know that I love to play dress up... In my time in SL, almost 9 years of it would you believe, I've been and done a lot of things... I started as a stripper, I lived life as a vampire, a fairy and countless other magical beings before falling upon the way I am now - a living dead girl - but it's always fun to dress in something that you might not ever normally wear when it comes to taking pictures... This outfit is one of those things! 
I also decided to go to a place I've never had anything to do with before... The Bloodlines thing was such a craze at one time that everyone and their aunty was a vampire - it's why the gradual change into a living dead girl happened with me lol I wanted to be something different! However, I made a look and thought "hmmm where might a thirsty vampire go for an easy meal?" LOL...
I know NOTHING about bloodlines - apart from the fact that it gets a little annoying if someone strange asks to bite you, just an f.y.i if you're a hungry vampire and you want to suck my blood make it feel realistic, don't ask, jump me like a real vampire would LOL... 
It was the outfit however that pulled me into a vampire-ish mood today, not that it takes much to get me to do something blood related hehe... The outfit is a new ImmateriA release for a new event I've never heard anything about called Fair Play, but it includes everything I'm wearing here - dress, massive shoulder pads and the hood, which would always get my attention as it's more than a little Maleficent... 
The skin is underworld themed too... If you're looking for Vampire stuff, a great place to go to is this month's Genre as it's an Underworld theme... This skin is one of the new skin releases from Stargazer Creations, and it helps to maintain the fact that I feel Aggie is one of the best fantasy skin makers in SL... Her skins as always come with a million different things - OK maybe not a million but the box is stuffed full - and it includes eyes, appliers, with and without cleavage options - it's brilliant!! Though I will admit in this case I am not wearing the eyes that come in the box, I chose to wear an amazing pair of antielle eyes that you can win by collecting the gold coins at Origami
So if you're a thirsty vampire, maybe you want to try Bloodlines, or if you're looking for vampire fashions maybe you want to try ImmateriA and Genre?! Whatever happens, don't wait too long before you get that drink, thirsty vampires are dangerous beings... 

What is she wearing;
Skin: [Stargazer Creations] - Kindred Avatar (Available Now at GENRE
Eyes: antielle - Onryou Yuurei (Available Now at Origami
Outfit including Hood: ImmateriA - Vampire Crusades (Available Now at Fair Play

A new Kitty in the House

Two things happened simultaneously this week that seemed like this post HAD to happen... First of all, I recieved a really cute item from The Horror that cried out to be blogged, but the second coincidence was just too much of a coincidence for me to not to use it as a reason to ramble LOL...
My sister Lilian, got a new member of the family this week - an adorable lady kitty came to join her RL family, prompting so many laughs amongst the Gators about Lil having a new pussy that I've had stomach cramps from laughing some days.
So to stop the laughing cramps thinking of Lil's new pussy, and to expand the reason for the coincidence a little more, I was sent new kitty things from The Horror, and they are so cute!!
See Lil isn't the only one with a new pussy! I have one too LOL... This one is a Horror special, created just to make any new wizards that will be heading to school in the new year feel more at home. I'm talking about the "Yer a Kitty" Collection that has been created by The Horror! Available now at The Wizarding Faire, you can get yourself an adorable little kitten, as well as a bed - or in this case a house - and all the food and water he needs... This will make the perfect gift for any little wizard about to start school!
I stuck to my family roots in this photo though, and many of you may have absolutely no idea what I am talking about LOL... WAY BACK in Rudh history I was part of a family of magical beings - possibly explains a lot about my fancy dress choices that - my sister was a dragon, another a witch but my uncle was Remus - of Hogwarts fame - and his husband was Severus - yes it's a long and twisted story lol - but I was always told that I was a kid that would fit in well at my Uncle Severus's school house... Not that I have any idea how it's his school house, but it was Slytherin I believe... So going away from the ramble, I stuck to the family roots by dying my hair a vibrant shade of green and wearing it in a style that you can grab for yourself from the Adoness store at Hair Fair! If all that wasn't cool enough too, any of the Adoness hair that you buy from the Hair Fair will have a 30% donation to the charity... Get cool hair, and help a kid! Brilliant idea right?!

The Gators Grabfest Yardsale

Time for a quick one to start my day off with a bang... I've just sat at my desk at work and well, work can wait LOL, I have more important things to worry about than work LOL and who goes to work to work anyway?! LOL... OK I think I've also had enough coffee for the morning, at least till 10am ish!
I do however want to share something with you quick...
A few of the Gators have decided to have a little yardsale on our sim, you can get all kinds of good things from gachas, as well as a few specially made things that have come from the stores of various Gators... If you've got some time and are looking for something from a gacha you need, maybe come and check us out!
All of my items, besides things that are large collections boxed into one box are only 10L or 20L, and that in some cases will include rares... I have all kinds of random cute things, and am updating things constantly so on my stall you never know what you will find - guess it's random like me then lol - but everything is cheap, everything is cute, and everything needs a good home. I'm not trying to make money with this, just trying to get rid of the things I don't need to people that would like them!
Come and get it, if you want it!!!

A Mixed Up Romp with something Pink!

I've been such a good girl lately... Í've been blogging like crazy working on getting things covered, ensuring that bloggers were doing their jobs - for those of you that manage multiple events with lots of bloggers I am bowing to your greatness hehe - AND dealing with MC drama which caused the biggest headache you can imagine...
Sometimes it makes me feel a bit like I'm hearding chickens LOL... I run around organising, and having so very little Rudh time... Well I've just finished blogging Horror Haute for this month, and NOW IT'S ME TIME!!!
So what do I do when I get a little me time, I take pictures usually but in this case I did something a little more risque than I had imagined I would... I had a ROMP something fun and pink... I blame the pink, pink is the colour of evil. I MIXed it up a little and wore my new heels too... Boy was that alone time fun hehe...
I dressed appropriately - a little pink lingerie and a pair of the gorgeous new lassitude & ennui shoes with their delicate floral pattern - and lit a few candles before opening the box I'd gotten from the ROMP event.. The reason for the oppulence was packaged inside, and I felt like a kid at Christmas... Time for being a good girl was over, if I'm staying with the idea of Christmas, I'd be one of the girls on the Naughty list that Santa would want to visit hehe...
The toys I unpackaged were a special release from The Horror! As soon as I saw them I KNEW I'd be taking some home with me hehe... A perfect collection of everything a girl - or guy - could possibly need, with perhaps the only thing missing being a flogger. These toys come in two colours - the pink or a more manly black set - and they can be rezzed as a complete set or unlinked and "used" individually hehe...
These are going to be a permanent fixture in my little house hehe... After all, I never know when I will get a moments peace LOL...

Skin: Glam Affair - Lauren in America 07 (Past Collabor88 Item)

Horror Haute was Simply the Best!

Today is the day... It's the last of the posts that I can share with you for this month's Horror Haute line-up... There are still TONS of things that I've not shown you, but then hey I cannot show you everything as that would possibly ruin a few surprises... You'll have to trust me when I say that these have been my favourites but there are so many things out there that you shouldn't miss!
I've made two simple pictures for this post, so that we ease you out gently and that way hopefully you won't get withdrawl symptoms LOL...
The first is a bit more showy than the second! It's possibly because there was a visit from the Day of the Dead partygoers lol... The head dress is a "Simply the Best" re-release from Lilith's Den for this month's Horror Haute theme, and I simply couldn't resist sharing this as my favourite for the store. I love the little skulls with those HUGE bright flowers - this really sums up Dia de los Muertos for me. I decided to wear the headdress simply, without hair, but with a new release from a store that's Horror Haute but this Sthenno Latex Bodysuit - from ImmateriA - is actually available at The Alchemy this month!
Then for the pose... I decided to use another item from the La Maison des Corbeaux's - LMdC for short - re-releases... This time it was Dia de los Muertos themed to match the outfit I'd chosen! The pouf style stools are a series called My Sugar Skull, each in a different colour with bright patterns over the top... Such a cute item to have in a house of an sugar skull girl!
The last of the Horror Haute Items I am going to share with you this month is the one above... The set of nails are the Dark Passions Koffin Nails in a Monster Movie Madness print... I love that they are printed with the original horror monsters of movies, and I will admit that though I photoshopped to be able to show you all of the designs, it would have been too tough to choose just one print to show you!!
So that's it, Horror Haute is officially open until the beginning of August, and then there will be lots more pretties to come from the new line-up! For now if you haven't checked out Simply the Best then you should, what are you waiting for?!

What is she wearing;
Head Dress & Mask: Lilith's Den - Dia De Los Muertos in Set E (Available Now at Horror Haute July)

What if I lose you?!

I need to take a little time out, I need to think and you know what, this is always the perfect place for me to do so. I really hope you don't mind, and if you'd rather not be forced to read my ramblings then you can always scroll to the bottom of the post to find out more about my outfit.
The location I sat in to spend some time musing over the thoughts in my head is a delightful little place called Calypso Caffe and it seemed perfect for mulling the thoughts plaguing my brain. I grabbed a RL coffee, parked my pixel butt and now I'm going to divulge my thoughts in my usual rambling fashion.
You might have seen me mention that I am currently very much on edge at the moment as some little child with far too much time on his hands has been making threats to hack my PC and grief me... To be entirely honest, his words don't bother me and it seems more like hot air and attention seeking rather than anything serious, but what bothers me is how it makes me feel at the thought of losing Rudh.
I don't know if you've ever experienced the thought of losing your avatar... I've met a few people that say they wouldn't care if the avatar was destroyed, but for me I know I'd be devastated. They say it's just virtual belongings that you cannot hold and can be replaced, but in my eyes, it's still my personal belongings. I've spent hours, days, weeks, months even years collecting everything, some of the pieces are just because I love them but others are personal and very important. No matter that they are virtual things, it would be just like being looted in RL, it would break my heart...
Yet it's not only the personal possessions... I know that the friends I've made would always remain with me, whether I was in world or not, it's more the fact that Rudh is a part of who I am. She has my feelings, emotions, and my voice even... She has been the reason that I have been able to create so many wonderful friendships and lasting memories... She's also been as escape from reality when things were too tough...
I know I'm not the only one to have ever felt this way, and I know I won't be the last one to feel this way either, but for me the thought of losing Rudh is horrible. I hope none of you are ever put at risk like this... Be careful what you are clicking or accepting from people, be careful who you share your details with, and if I disappear from in-world then rest assured I will fight tooth and nail until you see me again... For now, though this Living Dead Dolly ain't goin nowhere!! I hope!

What do Angels with Red Wings eat?

Strange to see a little angel sitting in the clouds and enjoying the sunlight, especially when you think that she's an angel of Horror, but that's what she is... Don't let her innocent look fool you!?!
I'll share with you a possible little secret right now, and that is, Angels are like flamingoes, the colour of their feathers changes depending on what they eat! Now I've always believed that angels eat cake LOL... Why else would something that tastes like Heaven have been created?! Duh?! LOL... This would explain the creamish wings they have right?
In this case, you can tell she's a Horror Angel, her wings are blood red, you can tell what she eats hehe...
Lots of different things make this Horror Angel look the way she does, things from various events too... For example the Florchild Halo that she is wearing is a Oneword release from The Horror, and there is a handful of things here that have been past event releases - such as the Thorned Beauty Rose Jewellery from roobix - but the entire reason for this photo was in fact one item... The Tasty Pudding Vamp Cobweb Stockings are that reason.  They are available in a series of different colours, and have the ability to wear the thorns without the socks too! These socks are a release for the Simply the Best line-up of Horror Haute this month, by the way, just so you know hehe...
So if you ever see an Angel with red wings, no matter how pretty they are... RUN!!
