The Star Wars Saga of Father and Son

At least two of the people that I spend large amounts of my day with are super excited and at least one of those has a count down running... Not for Christmas, but for the release of the new Star Wars movie! Unfortunately it's my hubby and my SL son that are the excited ones, and they are worse than kids at Christmas, these two are like geek boys waiting for a visit from Vadar, and although it can be cute my eyes are getting a lot of rolling exercise LOL...
Our relationship with Athrun started because of Star Wars - so I guess I should thank it really - when he and Hell were making jokes about Hell being his version of Darth Vadar, and as with all of the kids that we've ever adopted, the joke came to mean more, I became a step mum and then just mum to him. He's learning a lot about fashion from his new mum, while his Dad... Well he talks to his dad about Star Wars!
So when the new round of The Instruments started, and it had a familiar theme, there was only one team I could call in to be my models...
This month's round of The Instruments is based on Star Wars, and for the fans there are a heap of awesome goodies to get your hands on. I was a bit daunted to see a set of poses from Come Soon land in my lap, but I shouldn't have worried... The only complaints I heard were "My own lightsaber is better Mum"... They were far too preoccupied telling me that they could pose in the swamp as it's like one of the planets apparently!
They are both wearing outfits, which I am reliably informed are the uniforms of the Sith and Jedi - Sith being HellBone with the Red Lightsaber and Jedi being Athrun with the Blue Lightsaber - from a store called DOUBTFUL MASTER on the Marketplace. The Lightsabers themselves come as props with the Come Soon pose, as do in fact the platform and the space ship.
Maybe I should let these two play for a while, will give me some quiet time... Sounds like a pretty good plan that actually!!! Don't tell Hell, but I'm so smart, I'm Batman!

What is she wearing;
HellBone Hair: Exile - Fallout
Athrun Hair: Mina Hair - Harry
Outfit: DOUBTFUL MASTER - Jedi rigged mesh
Pose: Come Soon - The Force (Available until December 6th at The Instruments)

A last walk in Autumn

Sunday mornings are supposed to be lazy times, times spent curled up in a nice warm bed, drinking coffee whilst reading the news - or in my case perusing through Flickr, my personal addiction - yet yesterday morning that was not about to happen. I was woken by HellBone getting ready to go out in RL and from there I was not able to sleep... SO I a took a walk in SL and wandering around where it's pretty... I discovered a pretty place called Aspen Fell yesterday morning...
I wanted to share it with you yesterday, whilst in the heat of the moment but I got busy really fast and from there I was swept away from my blogging and onto something less fun...
I guess though it's another look-of-the-day post for me, as I don't really have much to talk about besides the fact that my Hubby is like an elephant in the mornings LOL... BUT I will let him off because I loved this outfit, and the location made me feel happy too...
The hair is a newer one from Truth called Amoret. I always liked Truth hair, but had a few grumbles about wearing it in the past as it's something that everyone and their mother seems to wear, yet I cannot resist it, Truth makes so many pretty styles and has such lovely textures! How can a girl resist?!
I'd been shopping at Shiny Shabby recently, not somewhere I normally go as it can be a little too different from my usual chosen style, but this Ascend Fringed Out Cardigan pulled me in, and I even surprised myself by not choosing the black version! I know shocking isn't it?! While I was there, I also grabbed the [White Widow] Tattoo release, it's so gorgeous and has become my main set of inkings - funny how in the past I was strictly a wound girl, this mesh body thing has really made me think otherwise - I love the DeadMan Tattoos! The sweater looks so adorable over my favourite new jeans - that were a gift from my climbing frame - at Blueberry that I tucked into the even cuter Native Boots from Reign!
What a cute outfit for going out for a walk in?!

What is she wearing;
Hair: TRUTH - Amoret in Reds
Skin: Glam Affair - Lauren in America 07
Tattoo: [White~Widow] - DeadMan (Available until December 10 at Shiny Shabby)
Top: Ascend - Fringed Out Cardigan in Green  (Available until December 10 at Shiny Shabby)
Jeans: Blueberry - Mia in Faded
Boots: Reign - Native Boots in Camel
Pose: Bauhaus Movement - Blur

Thoughtfulness at Angel Manor Gardens

Thanksgiving is over, the Black Friday sales too, but having had no part in the former I can honestly say that I have grossly gorged myself on the latter. I might have missed the HUGE family dinner for Thanksgiving, but wow did I shop in the Black Friday Sales... Valentina E, Dead Dollz and Spirit were raided thoroughly lol... Now I need some time for pensive reflection, I think... 
Going to do that with a look-of-the-day and a chance to breathe at the Angel Manor Gardens... Things have been so crazy in my SL and in fact in RL too that I haven't really had a chance for escape in either life. My SL Mum and I are no more, I found out the hard way and learnt too much about the things she thought of me and some of the people we called family. I learnt the hard way, once again, that people seem to be less than willing to take heed of their own actions and are far too quick to blame others for things without taking the time to look in the mirror at themselves... Once again, I'm feeling a kind of bereavement but on this occasion, rather than anger I feel pity and hope that these people will realise the error of their ways before things get too late! I doubt that she will read this, I don't think she ever did, but in case she does, I want to thank her for the good times, thank her for the times she was there when I needed her and I guess, beg her to get some professional help before she loses everyone she holds dear! 
As for my look-of-the-day - something I never thought I'd end up doing but seem to be working on much more frequently now - I pulled some old but still adorable and accessible things from my hoard whilst on a clean-up and thought why not share the look with you!! 
The hat is part of the Truth Foxy hair, and it's just so cute that I couldn't resist this wig. It's my nod to the whimsical, along with the cute yellow Dolly Shorts - from Foxes, yes I know that wasn't an intentional link but funny that hehe! I toned down the cute with a simple sweater from Atomic and then ramped it back up again by adding these adorable Polka Dot Tights from The Secret Store. Accessorising simply with one of my HAD TO HAVE collections from (Nylon Outfitters), the yellow Garden Locket! 
For now though I'm done talking, I think I am going to wrap myself up warm and go for a walk somewhere Autumnal before it becomes to Winterfied here... 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Foxy in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Lauren in America 07 
Necklace: (Nylon Outfitters) - Garden Locket in Yellow
Sweater: Atomic - Weekend Lazies in Set 2 
Shorts: Foxes - Dolly Shorts in Yellow 
Tights: The Secret Store - Polka Tights in Black & White 
Pose: Signature Pose - I like that! (Available until December 2nd at Gen-Neutral

No Beauty Treatments Are Needed, A Lobotomy Would Suffice

Sometimes the mind is a scary place to be, mine has always been one that has a lot of self-doubt and sensitivity... I pick up on people's emotions and reciprocate them, I worry and then worry some more about things that aren't even there and my mind makes up things that aren't even true, so when reality hits me with something big it tends to pour over me like a waterfall... 
So much is happening - or not happening - that last night I snapped... I cried myself to sleep... As a result I found myself feeling empty - almost dead inside - and I wonder is it time for me to make some changes?! I won't go into details, at least not yet, but if the photos I'm coming out with over the next few days seem to fit the Halloween season more than the festive one we are heading for please forgive me! 
I will say that when I am in this frame of mind, I seem to be able to create photos that I love... This is one of them! Normally I over think photos and worry that they aren't good enough, this time my mind is distracted and you can see that I just did what felt natural! I am glad that it worked... 
Rudh was having a little bit of a nip'n'tuck, making some of those changes - there are a few in SL at the moment but not so many as in RL luckily! - but something went wrong and she ended up needing a Lobotomy rather than her simple beauty procedures!
Laid out on a [ContraptioN] table, perhaps she should have known that a procedure like this wouldn't need an embalmer present, yet it appears she was in the right place. The hard table covered with a blanket, the tools of the trade laid on her stomach and the light of the large body freezer casting an eerie glow over her pale skin. The only signs of her procedure - apart from her state of course - are the felt tip markings drawn to show what needed fixing... The doctors of the antielle Beauty Clinic having prepared her for a Suction! 
Minor changes will occur in my SL in the next few days, but it's the RL things that will be more drastic... Still if you are willing to come along with me then hold onto your hats, it's going to be a bumpy ride! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Focus in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Sia Ghost in Polar 
Forehead Wound: REPULSE - Lobotomy Stitches Face Tattoo 
Eyes: Insufferable Dastard - Zombie Eyes 
Mouth Wound & Stitches: Ama. - Deadly Silence 
Tattoo: antielle - Beauty Clinic in Suction Rare 
Pose: Image Essentials - Birds Eye 1 i
Bed: [ContraptioN] - Decor Embalming Stretcher 
Tools: [ContraptioN] - Decor Embalmer's Tools

Pandora Painted Me!

You might have heard me say this before but one of my morning rituals is to sit and look through everyone's lovely pictures on Flickr, leaving comments and liking things here and there as I go - some people have a Facebook obsession, but for me the morning cannot start without coffee and Flickr!
Recently I was looking at the pretty pictures when I noticed an amazing offer by one of my favourite artists - Pandora Box - who was offering that if you sent a simple picture, meeting the standards that she used, she may create something gorgeous... Don't believe me, check her ad here!
Anyway I jumped at the chance and took my simple picture... 
Nothing too special... We weren't supposed to have hair, tattoos, or anything like that, and we had to be a high resolution shot on a black background... I will admit to you though that I used a pose from Signature Pose called Brucy! Gotta love Bruce Forsyth!
I emailed her the photo, not expecting to see anything back, but I was to be surprised... Scanning through Flickr a few days later I found this... 
Thank you Pandora, it's totally gorgeous!! I LOVE it, who knew I could be that feminine hehe... 
Check out her work on her Flickr Page, and maybe if you feel you can send her an email yourself!!! 

There's Something in the Walls...

Yesterday I was like a photo taking demon... I took some really good ones and some really not good ones, but it felt like my blogger juices were flowing and I was able to come up with some really cool things... Only problem now is that I have to find the right way to put things into words! I guess that should be easy enough, I can just waffle on about any random rubbish - not sure that anyone reads my ramblings anymore - though this morning I know just what to say... 
I've been feeling a need to do something naughty... Something a little risqué... I stumbled upon the perfect thing, by chance, when we moved into the new motel! There was something sinister about it, like someone was watching... There was also a lot of strange noise from inside one of the walls... 
If only I knew at the time, that there was a creepy guy watching me through the mirror... I might have put on more of a show hehe... I might have ended up murdered though, as I heard happened to a woman in another room - police everywhere last night I didn't get a wink of sleep and she was found encased in the wall!! 
LOL - sorry mind running away with me again - this is the Murder Motel from Death Row Designs. It was released as a Gacha Item for TAG! but it's taken until now for HellBone to have it all set out... It's amazeballs how brilliant it is when it's all set out, and looking pretty! 
It's lucky I was wearing some cute panties though, and not some old granny panties, and these IAF Love Cut Shorts really do give the derrière a certain appeal, not to mention showing off my new [White Widow] Tattoo really well!! 
Mind you it just goes to show, you never know what's in the walls... Come to think of it, I wonder if the Gator boys knew there was a way to watch the girls in their bedrooms... Those Lucky, Lucky Boys hehe... 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Amoret in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Lauren in America 07 
Tattoo: [White~Widow] - DeadMan (Available until December 10 at Shiny Shabby
Shorts: IAF - Love Cut Shorts in Black 
Pose: Image Essentials - Carwash 6

On the Catwalk

Out of the snow and into the limelight, I'm taking a stroll of a different kind today... A walk down the runway. The Catwalk was calling to me... I was once told that I was too fat to be a SL model and that I'd have to change my shape entirely, since meeting one of my MC Sisters - Solde - I can believe that this was true, her modelling shape is kinda scary! Yet it never stops a girl from fantasising about the glamorous lifestyle every now and then! 
Today's outfit is a bit of a Look-of-the-Day kinda deal, but it was more that I wanted to show off this awesome pose prop from Image Essentials! The Runway Pose Prop was an event release - which I am late in getting out - BUT you will still be able to pick it up at the Image Essentials main store! It has a collection of poses within the prop so you can strut your stuff, or if you're feeling brave you can freestyle on the catwalk itself, but this is such a useful and fun photography tool especially for anyone that loves to model! 
As for my look of the day, it's made up of pieces that were recent event releases and you will still be able to catch these at main stores, but I am late with bringing them to your attention so I am sorry for that. I have some adorable Coven Heels from a recent Epiphany gacha that Reign put out, I'm also accessorising with a Leather Bone Bag from Zenith - which was a past Epiphany gacha release too! Whilst talking accessories let me drag your eyes up to my neck and point out the super cute Greymark Necklace from random.Matter, and the Afterlife collar from DAZED. Then my outfit, this was a past release from trés blah, and it comes in two separate parts - of which you have various colours to choose from - but the Vinyl Pants and Devon Tank are a combination made in heaven... Perhaps a little warmer kind of heaven than I'm in right now but you get the idea lol... Finally my hair is something totally new... It's available until November 30th at We <3 RP in the Exile Booth... 
I'm not so good at writing look of the day posts, I really don't think I could be a fashionista blogger... I try, I fail, let's move on LOL... 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Exile - Looking Back in Reds (Available until November 30th at We <3 RP
Skin: Glam Affair - Lauren in America 07

Come Soon Winter Love

After being out in all that snow, I needed to find somewhere quiet and cosy - with a change of clothes - to warm up... I found the adorable little cafe, and had to make a selfie just to show you where I am... Gotta love Selfies hehe...
The location is one that comes with the pose... It's one of those super amazing pose scenes that you get whenever you buy a pose from Come Soon Poses, this time though I will say that the Winter in Love Pose - that you can grab at Cosmopolitan until December 5th - is so sweet, very romantic and might have been even cuter if I'd had someone there on the blue pose ball with me... Would have been nice to have someone to warm me up after all that snow right?! Where are all those hot biker boys when I need them LOL... Though as always with Come Soon Poses, you don't only get a pose but you also get the prop - in this case my cell phone - and the Scene too, now of course you can use the pose without the scene and props but for the low price you pay for a pose this is bloody brilliant!
The outfit I chose wasn't particularly the warmest though, I mean at least it wasn't wet, I suppose!
I'm still wearing my favourite new jeans from Blueberry, but I have a new cardigan - or is it a shirt - from NITELY which I picked up at the latest round of Suicide Dollz, and then pulled my hair into some semblance of tidiness under this adorable hat - and hair - combination from Besom and Reign - available at the latest round of No.21!
Now all I need is for a Winter Love to come and pose with me... Any takers?!

What is she wearing;
Hat & Hair: BESOM & REIGN - Kittenish in Reds (Available until December 11th at No.21)
Skin: Glam Affair - Lauren in America 07
Tattoo: [White~Widow] - DeadMan (Available until December 10 at Shiny Shabby)
Top: NITELY - Demetria Shirt in Fade (Available until December 4th at Suicide Dollz)
Jeans: Blueberry - Mia in Faded
Pose, Prop & Scene: Come Soon Poses - Winter in Love (Available until December 5th at Cosmopolitan)

Supervillain Plot Spot

Staying where it's snowy at the moment, though I wandered away from Lil's and felt brave enough to go mountain climbing in the snow in heels LOL... The kind of stunt that would possibly make me famous in RL - famous for being crazy perhaps?! - but whilst I was wandering around I had a moment that made me feel like I was in another world, and I guess - though it's probably the dress - I felt like a bit of a standed supervillain plotting revenge from a desolate location.... The mountain of Furillen!
LOL, sometime's I have no idea how my mind can be such a random place! You think it sounds weird, try living in it LOL...
The reason for this crazy story is actually all due to the dress... This dress is a new release from adoness, for the current round of The Depraved Nation Thrift Shop, called Libitina. It comes in a handful of simple colours and then two multi-coloured designs, this being the Fantasy Blue version.
I wore it with some thigh high Leather Harlow Boots from Etchaflesh and then teased my hair into a Doe Lesli style - half up into a strange braid and the rest hanging long and curly - to finish that supervillain look and TADAAAAA I'm going to take over the world!!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Doe - Lesli Hair in Two-Tone Ginger
Skin: Glam Affair - Lauren in America 07
Dress: adoness - Libitina in Fantasy (Available Until November 29th at The Thrift Shop)
Boots: [Etchaflesh] - Leather Harlow Boots
Pose: Stand in my AO

Snow at Lil's

Dammit it's cold outside this morning... I'm not really complaining as I much prefer being wrapped up warm outside in the cold in the Winter than being too hot and not able to do anything about it in Summer, but dammit it got cold fast!
It's not actually snowed where I am yet, though other parts of Holland have had some, and Lil's is one of those places! Her SL place, but still... The snow has settled in her home space in SL, and she was kind enough to let me play in it!!!
Lil's home space is gorgeous, but I cannot share the secret location with you so you have to deal with just pictures hehe - there will be more to come, I promise!
For now I was so excited to be playing in the snow in my new outfit - you cannot see the pants here but the sweater is a part of the new Linda Outfit from N-Uno at Trés Chic. I was so excited that I forgot that snow is COLD!  I didn't wear a scarf or gloves - silly me - and it wasn't long before my nose and cheeks picked up that Winter time glow. You too can get that Winter Time glow, either by going out in the cold and freezing yourself, OR if you're smart you stop by Trés Chic and grab yourself the make up from [theSkinnery] called Winter Blush... It might be warmer, trust me!
I'm not sure I should be in the snow, I love the cold, but I'm not sure Gators are made for snow... Still least at Lil's I can go curl up in front of her fire to warm up... I just hope I don't get a cold now!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Magika - Drive
Skin: Glam Affair - Lauren in America 07

An Autumn Walk with the Sheep

I've been digging through my hoard recently, trying to work out what I want to keep and what I need to throw away as I've become a mesh body addict and cannot wear my old system clothing... I am going to admit that some of my favourite pieces will be added to my SL time capsule of a folder, where I have stashed things with meaning such as the ball-gown I wore at my 21st birthday party in SL, but a lot had to go... This did however help me rediscover some things that I'd forgotten, and when I added a new necklace I was happy as a pig in the mud hehe... I guess you might call it a look of the day?! 
The outfit is mostly older stuff, but for a walk in the sheep fields at Kaleidoscope, an older outfit didn't seem like a bad idea! 
The jacket is an oldie but a great one from [Foxes], it's an Aviator Jacket in a dark gunmetal colour, with an awesomely soft furry collar! It looks great with ANY jeans, but I have a new found addiction - yes I know I am late to the party - about the asses from Blueberry, and so Blueberry jeans will grace my butt a lot for the time being hehe... 
To accessorise I decided to keep things simple and found a necklace from a past round of Fi*Friday that I had not worn yet. The BellePoses necklace that I bought a few weeks back called Beth, just looked so cute with this simple outfit that it added a little something and made me feel great!!! 
So I came up with a look of the day, OMG lol, and although I'm not the best fashion photographer in the world I hope you like the outfit I chose hehe... 

What is she wearing;
Hair: TRUTH - Louisa (Free Group Gift) 
Skin: Glam Affair - Lauren in America 07 
Jacket & Top: [Foxes] - Aviator Jacket in Gunmetal 
Necklace: BellePoses - Beth Necklace in Silver 
Jeans: Blueberry - Serala Flare Jeans 
Pose: Signature Pose - My Own Vogue (Available until December 2nd at Gen-Neutral

The Running Away of R2D2

Star Wars seems to have taken over one of the events this month, and trust me this won't be the only time this month I am writing about it because Come Soon Poses has made some awesome pose props for Star Wars geeks, but for now I wanted to share something and had the best photo prop collection out there... My hubby, my brother and my son LOL... 
Though excuse me while I run for my life as this little R2D2 is running away from the fight!!! 
The reason I forced myself into at least acting like I like Star Wars was the fault of the event that is The Instruments and the store that I am a blogger for that is (Poisoned Diamond). They made a coo,l hat based on R2D2 for the event, and I managed to pull a dress out of the hoard from Rotten Defiance... A store that has long since closed but whose Items I still dig out from time to time! 
Weird that I have so much Star Wars stuff in my inventory when I don't like the movies - I'm even sending Hell to see it with his Mum in RL when it's released LOL - but hey it works at times like this... 
May the Force be with you Athrun, maybe next time you will do as your Dad asks lol... 

What is she wearing;
(To make life easier I haven't included details of all of the outfits worn by my models. If you would like to know what they are wearing please feel free to ask!)
Hat: (Poisoned Diamond) - AR2DE2 in Blue (Available until December 6th at The Instruments
Hair: Exile - Looking Back in Reds (Available until November 30th at We <3 RP
Skin: Glam Affair - Lauren in America 07

Neverland has a new Pirate Captain!

Boy am I glad that the last two weeks are over, thank God it's Friday! The drama that was surrounding my SL is beginning to die down, thanks to the removal of someone from my daily life, and that - if you pardon the pun of the photo - makes me feel like I've been let off the Hook and am no longer dangling over a precipice heading for the drama pit of doom!! 
I am still however, hiding in my fantasy land bubble for a little while longer, because I am SO not done playing around in Neverland! Thank you so much to the Enchantment team LOL, this has been my favourite round and location so far! 
Today, I am checking out Skull Rock... Going to visit a cousin of mine, he's got a bit of a ticking problem!!  
As you can tell I am loving the theme of this month's Enchantment, and so today I've decided to use their location as a background for my photo... After all if you want a Skull Rock this is a damn good one to choose!
I will admit too that about 90% of my outfit is available at the event, with the exception of my tattoos, my jewellery and the new subscriber group gift from Truth!
The outfit itself is one from Dead Dollz called Polly. This comes in 4 different colour options and has recently been updated with a HUD for colour change of the metals! Now it could be worn as a non-piratey outfit but COME ON, when you get the chance to be a pirate, be a PIRATE lol... I added a few little extras for that extra piratey feel though... I wanted a hat but didn't find one that really made me think YES this is my captain's hat, but the Hook from [CerberusXing] was just way too hard to walk away from. Called Duel's Aftermath, it comes with two different weapon attachments - as I was in Neverland I went with the Hook option but I could have gone for a sword if I wanted to! Then for that final finishing touch, I treated Pirate me to a new Eyepatch from Tabou Irresistible
BEWARE Neverland... Hook was bad but Hook Rudh is even more of a deadly pirate... ARGHHHHH!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Louisa (Subscriber Gift)
Skin: Glam Affair - Lauren in America 07
Eye Patch: Tabou Irresistible - Pirate Eyepatch in V1 (Available until December 5th at Enchantment
Necklace: DAZED - Everly Collar
Outfit: Dead Dollz - Polly Outfit in Red (Available until December 5th at Enchantment)
Hook: [CerberusXing] - Duel's Aftermath in Onyx Hook (Available until December 5th at Enchantment)
Pose: Signature Pose - You Called (Available until December 2nd at Gen-Neutral)

Sharks Out of Mind

The Jaws theme tune is one of those pieces of music that as soon as you hear it you can immediately identify it... So this year, when I was scouting for a Halloween costume - yes I know that Halloween was a while ago but shhhhhhh I've had this post brewing for a while now - and I found this amazing costume I simply couldn't get the Jaws theme out of my head...
I HAD to have this outfit, I couldn't really not get it for myself LOL... So get ready to sing the jaws theme tune!!
Now I have to admit that although I LOVE the 0o Morph Studios Outfit, I photoshopped the picture to remove my arm, it felt more sharky that way... Random I know but I wanted more sharky for some reason... Please don't laugh too much LOL... 
So yes, it's a short and much belated Halloween post today LOL, but perhaps like the name of the location I took this photo in, Out of Sight Out of Mind, the shark is better left to sleep until shark week?! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Arden 
Skin: Glam Affair - Lauren in America 07 
Blood: Ama - Blood Splatter 
Outfit: 0o Morph Studios - Costume Party Shark 
Pose: Signature Pose - Nathi 1

Enchantment is the Second Star to the Right

One of my favourite memories from when I was little was the bedtime stories that I used to be told... Dad always made up stories for me and my sister about a little field mouse that took my sister and I on adventures, but Mum claimed that she had less imagination and so would always read to us from books. One of the first that I remember clearly was Peter Pan... 
Since then I've always loved tales of fairies and pirates and mermaids, as you may perhaps have figured out from reading my blog, but in a world of such chaos - at times - what is so wrong in that?!
The reason I'm running on a tangent about Peter Pan however, is because I've been more than a little excited about the recent opening of an Event in SL... Enchantment is back for another outing this month and this time it is based on the J.M. Barrie classic...  
The shopping event always pulls me in, but this time I was super excited... I bought a lot and was so excited that I have in fact been dressed like a pirate for the past few days - but I will show you that later hehe... For now though I want to share the picture I made in which my creativity seemed to run away with me lol... 
The A.D.D.Andel Wall Décor inspired this picture... I LOVED the simple décor and already have it on the wall of my bedroom. It comes with or without the quotation in both yellow and white. I knew I wanted to blog it, but how... I've never been very good at blogging furniture! Then a thought hit me... Find items that represent Neverland, and keep myself out of the shot... So that's what I did! I threw out a few more sparkles - [ keke ] glitter floor - to bring the stars to life and then set to work... 
Everyone needed to be represented! The Indians are there - the arrow and feather represents them - the Mermaids and the Lost Boys too - if you look at the mermaid dolly and the slingshot - but other characters items may need a little more discussion hehe... 
Starting with the fairies... I did a naughty thing! I unlinked this fairy dust jar from a décor item that comes with the MishMish Lil Fairies - sorry MishMish designer bunny please don't tell me off - but it was just too perfect, as fairy dust is more than a little important in the Peter Pan story. To go with the dust I also decided to include one of the amazing Tink Booties from Purple Moon that you can get at Enchantment... I HAD to have a pair of these, they are just gorgeous and a must have for anyone who ever dresses in a Fae style! 
Then the Children - Wendy, Michael and John. I chose to share Wendy through he kiss to Peter, the thimble she gave him, and I cheated with Michael and John LOL... Michael, the youngest, has a teddy bear... Here his teddy bear - thanks to Boogers - is dressed to represent Hook, the pirate captain! Yet I also wanted to share the ship that helped to bring the children home, and thus the Sari-Sari Paper Mache Ships were perfect for the job. 
Lastly though, and this is NOT an Enchantment item but just seemed like the perfect thing to represent one of the characters of Neverland, I added a slipper from Lost Junction to represent the Crocodile! These slippers are freaking adorable, and though the Croco pair were my favourite - possibly because I am so closely linked to alligators - they are all very cute, and all available at the Wayward Market until December 10th. 
SO check out both the Wayward Market, and Enchantment - you have until December 5th to do so - and while you're there don't forget to pick up the hud to do the hunt!! I did it yesterday, it's pretty easy, the clues are provided and now I get to be like a kid at Christmas and open my goodies hehe... YAY!!!!

Join the Pride, Fight with a Big Stick!

Since the attacks in Paris, my hubby has been having nightmares because of what will be happening today... Those attacks took place in a crowded concert venue and they were so horrendous because of the number of people that these places pack in... Tonight HellBone and I are going to a gig in RL and he's a little on edge. I'm not surprised, I am too and no one would blame him for feeling this way, but we cannot stop what we are planning, we have to keep living our lives to the fullest, and so tonight I am going to have a damn good time...
That doesn't mean though that Rudh would take things laying down of course, she's going to carry the biggest and baddest looking weapon she can find... A bit like Tank-Girl Barbie perhaps?!
Her weapon of choice comes from this month's round of We Love RP in the nefarious.inventions booth. The Big Sticks come in clean and used versions, each with and without poses, and each looking like it could do some serious damage... Hence weapon of choice for Rudh LOL... Normally she wouldn't be anywhere near a gun, but times must and she was at The Wastelands, you never know what is coming around the corner hehe...
Her outfit isn't going to be great to fight in however, I mean OK she looks awesome but for fighting perhaps not... Her long loose flowing hair would be better tied back for a start, but this new Exile style is just too kick-butt to ruin that hehe, and well she is showing rather a lot of skin! Not sure the Poisoned Diamond Skirt or the Zenith Leather Ranger Breastplate will make good fighting gear, but hey least she looks good while she defends her vantage point!
So to finish today, Tank Girl Barbie Rudh stands watching, the band I am going to see in RL today on the stereo, a little Five Finger Death Punch getting her in the mood... Join the Pride...

What is she wearing;
Hair: Exile - Looking Back in Reds (Available until November 30th at We <3 RP)
Skin: Glam Affair - Lauren in America 07
Top: Zenith - Leather Ranger Breastplate in Choco
Skirt: (Poisoned Diamond) - Jeans Skirt in Pale
Gun: nefarious.inventions - Big Stick in Clean (Available until November 30th at We <3 RP)
Boots: HOLLYHOOD - BARAKA Boots in Brown
Pose: Signature Pose - Pose Set 1 in Smile for Me (Available from November 12th until December 2nd at Gen-Neutral)

Heading Where It's Hazardous...

I've been so wrapped up in the drama that surrounds me lately, yet when I take a look at the bigger picture, it seems like meaningless drivel compared to what happened in Paris recently. I know that it's hardly comparable - my drama is personal and the Paris attacks were miles away - but being a European and living in a place where the country boarders are open is a little scary. I'm not suggesting that it would happen in Holland, but you can never tell, and it seemed far too easy for an attack like that to be organised! It's also not something that I can deal with, there is nothing that I can do about it and so I have to just get on with life... Thus I am left to deal with my own personal drama instead... Whoop-di-fricken-doo... I hate confrontation, and now I have to handle something with a very argumentative person. I am REALLY not looking forward to this...
So for now I am enjoying the calm before the storm, the peace before the war and I guess you could say the sanctity of my own mind before all Hell breaks loose! I'm not sure I will ever be ready for this, but today is the day I start to open my mind to the person causing the drama... Hold onto your hat Rudh Dolly, it's going to be a bumpy ride!!
I decided to take a walk to clear my head, and found that the blustery location of Hazardous is always good to clear the mind.
I picked up my friendly Ferret - a MishMish original for this month's Collabor88 - and put his warm little sweater on him before I headed out for my walk. It shows just how much my mind was distracted though, I mean the outfit from N-Uno - available now at Cosmopolitan - looks cute but it's not exactly warm hehe. Luckily a new friend of mine, Mr. Owl, caught up with me to bring me a lovely warm scarf - a lovely warm Moon Amore Cureless Scarf!
The photo that came out seems to reflect the way I feel... A little gloomy, and somewhat pessimistic, but with some lovely friends who will help me out and make me feel better... I just wish that this was over already!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Exile - Strange and Unusual Reds
Skin: Glam Affair - Lauren in America 07
Scarf: Moon Amore  + Cureless  - Owlsome Scarf in Azul (Available until December 6th at Collabor88)
Outfit: N-Uno - Kora Outfit in Nr-1 (Available until November 21 at Cosmopolitan)
Pet: MishMish - Ferret (Available until December 6th at Collabor88)
Pose: Signature Pose - Pose Set 2 in Torture (Available until December 2nd at Gen-Neutral)

Would you like an Apple?

OH MY GOSH I AM SLACKING... Rudhmellowen Laguna, you are so forgetful and useless sometimes, really you are! I cannot believe that I almost forgot to tell you about something so amazingly cool, one of my favourite SL events of the year... Dammit for having such a crazy, drama filled SL at the moment!! OH WELL, I am not too late, let me explain...
One of my favourite event teams is back again with a new Survival Horror Game. The Pulse Games team previously brought us The Flesh Game, Resting Place, System Failure, and Don't Panic - yes I wrote about a few of them and hasn't my blogging style changed, boy how much I've improved in 5 years! - and this year's event Carver's End remains open until November 21st. If you haven't been before - or have never heard of the Pulse Games events - now is the time to find out what the fuss is about!
First though, would you like an apple?
"Surrounded by lush apple orchards and nestled in a peaceful valley, the sleepy little Hamlet of Carver's End is the perfect place for taking the family Trick or Treating...but all is not as it seems in this idylic New England village. Evil lurks behind the locked doors and vacant local businesses that once bustled with small town life."
- Taken from the Pulse Games Event Information Note Card.
If you like nice juicy red apples then this would be a great place for you to visit... Apple Bobbing is a must at the Halloween period, I was always rubbish at it, preferring to eat an apple rather than drown myself for one LOL, but this sleepy little town has apples to spare. So if you want one, head on over to try one!
Don't miss out on the trick-or-treating at Carver's End... Would you like an Apple?

What is she wearing;
Hair: TRUTH - Foxy in Reds
Skin: Glam Affair - Lauren in America 07
Lipstick: {PSYCHO:Byts} - Hecate Lipstick in Burgundy
Collar: DAZED - Afterlife Collar in Raven
Top: Fishy Strawberry - Suspenders Tee in Black
Ring: [ keke ] - Trick Key Ring (Group Gift)
Pose & Props: UNCERTAIN SMILE - Apple 1
