Even the best adventurers love a good bedtime story...

It's 5.30PM in Holland and I am already thinking about the time I can curl up in bed and go to sleep! I love getting into my bed and stretching out, I always have what some people call a "Bedgasm" - a feeling of euphoria experienced when climbing into bed at the end of a very long day - although it doesn't have to be a long day in my case LOL... 
When I was little I always loved a good bedtime story. My parents read me things like Tolkien and C.S.Lewis from a young age, and I couldn't get enough of the amazing stories of fantasy folk. I'd curl up with my bed full of plushies and listen to the stories, so when I saw something made by one of my favourite designers it took me straight back to my childhood, and my dreams of magical adventures... 
The new book and plushie set called The Velveteen Rabbit is a special Tannenbaum release from Lost Junction. It's a lovely gift for anyone this Christmas. 
So when the Adventurer in me puts her maps and compass aside, and curls up under a blanket with her new book bunny!

She does more than Cheer

I love creating characters for myself and have many to choose from. They vary in style and each makes me smile, filling a role when I need it. You will know the Dead Doll me, may know the Demonic and Kawaii mes, and I'm sure you've met the side of me that is coming out to play today... The Dirty Girl me! This one is NOT very PG, she's a bit of a bad girl and when she is allowed out she's a lot of fun too...
I was sent a lovely gift from a friend that she managed to turn into the perfect uniform for her dirty fantasies!
The Bodysuit - which was the innocent gift - as a Tentacio "Let's Dance" Bodysuit from the gacha at Kustom9. Now for some reason, and don't ask me how, this innocent and rather cute looking bodysuit developed a life of it's own and became the outfit worn by a very bad cheerleader at Deep Valley High School. Just for the record the school - and the random stranger that wandered into the sports hall whilst I was working on this picture - are not affiliated with my dirty cheerleader look, but the school itself is an AMAZING location for Roleplay and as a photo backdrop - just remember to join the group's guest role!
This cheerleader helps her own sports team to win, by distracting the boys on the opposition team. Her Pompoms - from Reign and Besom's NOSEBLEED Gacha collection - are just decoys, her real  role on the Cheer Squad is as a distraction. The cigarettes are also a cover, this little cheerleader will do more than smoke behind the bike sheds, there are hints of what she will do by the smear on her glasses and her slightly ruined lipstick... BUT HEY HO anything for the boys on her team to win right?!

What is she wearing;
Hair: BESOM - NoseBleeds in Rumour RARE 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2
Glasses: ellemeno - Dirty Glasses in Black
Spots: Mad' - Acne Face
Lipstick: Izzie's - Smeared Lipstick Applier
Outfit: *Tentacio* - Let's Dance Gacha Item in Body grey RARE
Armband: DirtyLand - Cigarettes Armband
PomPoms: REIGN - NOSEBLEEDS in POM POMs Pink
Pose: Signature Poses - Those Savage Kicks

Death's Pretty Pet

The week has officially started, and right now it's Monday Morning but already it feels like it should be bedtime! This time next week I will be enjoying a lovely day off, as my parents are coming from the UK to visit for Sinterklaas - the Dutch Holiday - but that is a whole week away yet and right now I am stuck doing RL things. Work for example, such a rude four letter word!
I feel like doing something a little dark today, yesterday was too cute and I need a little dark and demonic feeling at the moment... Luckily that demonic side of me is ready to come out to play - one of the many sides of my imagination - so let's unleash a little darkness shall we?!
The entire reason the demonic side of me got all excited recently was a dress released by the store Meva. At the recent round of Whimsical - which runs until December 3rd - Meva unleashed their Ariola Dress collection onto SL, and my little demoness was screaming like a teenage fangirl at boyband concert. A selection of colours - mostly dark although there are colours available in the form of the dip-dyed versions - that strap over your torso and end in a very highly slit mini skirt!
Now she lingers in the dark by the cemetary - thanks to a photo location at WHOLE WHEAT - and waits for her Demonic Master to return home!

What is she wearing;
Horns: Tabou - Beyond Life Horns in Black
Hair: Magika - Empty Gold in 02
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2
Wound: CURELESS - Curse of Cain
Eyes: Suicidal Unborn!- Phantom Eyes V.2
Blood: ARISE - Blood Lip in Tone 3
Dress: Meva - Ariola Dress in Black (Available until December 3rd at Whimsical)

Sunday's Great Brocante Bake Off

When I was little, Sundays were the days that used to be for making cakes. We were never the kind of family that did it all that often, but at least once a month Mum would bake something. She used to complain about having to do it, but now that I'm older she says she actually enjoyed it just because it kept my sister and I quiet for a while! Now though, Sundays are actually more about chillaxing, watching a bit of TV perhaps and maybe if I'm lucky eating a bit of cake LOL... Now days the only "baking" that goes on in our family home, is when mum sits with a cup of tea to watch The Great British Bake Off... 
The reason that I am rambling on about this is because one of the most anticipated events of a 3 month cycle is coming... The Arcade starts again on December 1st, and brocante - the great teamwork store of Wavie Haller and Tegan Serin - has created a set of goodies they have called "The Great Brocante Baking Competition"!
In this amazing set by brocante you will be able to get your hands on ALL things British Bake Off, including the tools you need to bake, the finished products, the location to bake in AND this cute dress and apron!! Yes that's right, furniture geniuses now making clothing too!!! 
Remember though please, although I've included a link to The Arcade - it's common knowledge where it is, so no real surprises there - the event doesn't actually open until December 1st. You will have to wait to get your bake on... I just couldn't wait as that's what Sundays are for hehe...

Deception Flowers for Shoppers

It's BLACK FRIDAY... Two words that are great alone but when put together are freaking awesome... The fact that it's Friday anyway is pretty good, the fact that it's still an American Holiday and therefore I have today off my SL job again is even better, but the best and most exciting thing of all is the fact that Black Friday is the day when stores drop their prices and have HUGE SALES!!! I LOVE a sale, though OK it can make me a little bit of a greedy girl, but grabbing a bargin always boosts you're happy levels! Least it does for me anyway...
BUT all that aside, another thing that comes from today being Black Friday which boosts my happy levels, is that I will be taking it as an official reason to wear Black LOL... Not that I need a reason but whatever... Today as well as shopping like a crazy person, I am going to be wearing black and dead too... I'm a dead crazy person... Who'd have ever guessed?!
Before I start my shopping extravaganza today I am going to play around like the living dead doll that I am and get myself all prettified!
I think it's a day for flowers!! Replacing my left eye with a gorgeous "Deception Flower" - from Aii the Ughly & Beautiful at Enchantment - was easy enough but getting the little flowers to stay within the gash on my cheek was harder... Throwing on a dress and combing my hair was the easiest part after getting those flowers to stick!
Now though I am ready for SHOPPING!!!!! Watch out for that blur in the stores, as I mentioned yesterday, it might be me!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Besom - Giselle in Reds
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2
Veins: The Horror! - Corpse Scars & Bruises in Veined

Thanksgiving À La Rudh!

Although it's not something that I celebrate, today is Thanksgiving for the American Nation. It's not something that I have ever really paid all that much attention to, or even thought about, but as all of Secondlife seems to go Thanksgiving Crazy once a year I cannot help but join in the festivities sometimes. Even if in my case it is only the craziness of the Black Friday Sales. 
Still I wanted to share with you what a Thanksgiving dinner may be like with the non-American part of the Gators MC... HellBone and I are obviously spending today as a normal day, but Lil came over for a little dinner at our place... 
The resulting chaos was pure Gator craziness!!! 
I was so hungry that I couldn't resist getting into the Turkey before anyone else had a change to even think about eating any of it... Stuffing is the best bit! I had to have some before the others took it all! As you can tell by the look on Lil's face she was more than a little shocked LOL... 
The table is actually a rather naughty prop from Lewd - buyers beware, when it says glazing the ham you may not want to eat a glazed ham again LOL - but this "Forced Feast" is actually a group freebie for a few days, until it becomes an actual on sale item! 
The rest of the décor in the house is actually the most amazingly comfy looking Autumn Nest Chair from Violetility - and a rug which you can just see peeping out under the table. These things are all on sale at the current round of Cosmopolitan, and they make such snugly looking Autumn home cosiness! OH AND just so everyone is aware, because I've mentioned the craziness of the "Black Friday Sales" already... Violetility is having a sale at their mainstore! DON'T MISS THIS ONE! 
If you celebrate this particular holiday, HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Watch out for the strange blur of someone moving fast at the Black Friday Sales... That may just be me!!!

Dragons of the Future

Yesterday I was talking about history and letting it bring out the inner geek in me a little but today I am looking forward... Thinking about the future... There is so many things happening over the next couple of months that I feel it's going to be crazy busy, but OK I know that's not that far into the future LOL...
Now when I am looking for futuristic atmosphere in SL I tend to think of one awesome location. As a Photographer it's definitely been a go-to location for futuristic, and I say been because the future of this location seems to be on the brink of a goodbye. I heard somewhere that Insilico is closing... So I wanted to take one last trip over and say thank you...
It's been a great location for taking photos in, and if it's true about the closure then I for one am sorry to see it go. Insilico has been around for a long while now and it's always sad to see such well created sims disappear!
Of course when I was there I had to dress the part... My future, for Rudh at least, may look a little something like this LOL...
Yes she still has barely any clothing on, but that's the fault of this really cute "Kathy" Top - from JF Design at anyBody - which went so well with the futuristic Rudh's "Vial Mask" - shown here in yellow, but available in a range of different colours - from Violetility. I know that this mask was a past event release, and yes the event is over and I am late with sharing it, but it's available at the mainstore so no need to panic - at least not for you, I might get in trouble for being late with it LOL...
So in the future there will be a need for gas masks like this, least that's the way I feel the world is heading lol, but there will also be dragons. I've had dragons through my entire history of being Rudh, and I doubt they will ever fully leave me, I cannot see a future without dragons, even if they are just a teeny pet one - like this one from lassitude & ennui at The Gacha Garden

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Deja in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2

Who does she call, alone in the dark?!

As a history geek I am constantly aware of all of the amazing ways that people have made changes that sculpted our current way of living, I'll admit that I am never going to be one of those people that understands modern technology - for example when buying a phone they ask what I want and I'm like "Something I can use for Whatsapp and take pictures on!" while HellBone talks about specs, far as I'm aware, Specs go on your face! - but in recent years, with the advancements of technology it really makes the mind boggle! Not so long ago if you wanted to talk to someone, you had to be in the same place as a person or write them a letter... Jump forward a couple of hundred years and so many things are possible... Meeting people from the other side of the world without leaving my bedroom, for example.
The fact that talking to someone via a video chat is now possible, is something that I couldn't live without the ability to do anymore. It's one of the best ways to communicate with my family - since I moved to Holland to be with the man I met through an online virtual world - and it was handy before then for other non-PG things which will not be mentioned, but I am sure you know what I mean!
The reason I'm rambling on about this today, is because last night I recieved a copy of the new "Video Call" pose prop from Come Soon - which is up for grabs until December 1st at Suicide Dollz. Now I have been sat like this in RL many times before, admittedly not in a dress this short - like the one I'm wearing from Blueberry - because well a dress this short and a video call like that makes it seem much more of the non-PG kind than the type I'm accostumed to at the moment... Not saying anything about the past here though LOL...  
I'm thinking that Rudh is not have a PG kind of call... Her Snooze Bear - from BoOgErS - has been tossed to the end of her bed, and she's using the kind of language that may make a sailor blush - thanks to the Little Llama 8Bit Chat Gacha Item... I wonder who she is talking to?!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Ember in Reds
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2
Outfit: Blueberry - Cory in Black
Boots: CandyDoll - Arabella Boots in Black
Typing Accessory: Little Llama - 8Bit Chat Gacha in #@%&!
Pose: Come Soon - Video Call (Available until December 1st at Suicide Dollz)
Bear: BoOgErS - Snooze Bear

Caffeine and Nicotine

I awoke this morning to the remnants of yesterdays storm... Rain was pattering on the roof, the wind was whistling through the open window and, oh how can I forget, HellBone and the dog both snoring away. Yesterday was not a good day weatherwise, but it gave me the perfect excuse to hide in-doors and snuggle up warm and cosy-like.
This morning the storm seems to have passed, and although I had to get ready for work, I couldn't help myself taking a moment to stop and listen to the sounds of the world waking up... It makes drinking a coffee seem that much more enjoyable!
Rudh is enjoying her morning coffee this morning too... After crawling out of her SecondLife bed, she pulled on a long baggy shirt under her new "Wil Cardigan" - from C'est la vie at the new round of Shiny Shabby - and then padded onto the balcony of one of her many houses - yes I have actually got two houses, a caravan and my "dead shed" LOL - to watch the morning start with her favourite morning addictions caffeine - in a brand new and perfectly fitting slogan emblazoned mug from Plastik, also at Shiny Shabby - and nicotine! The chair with it's soft throw and the candle light as the sun in SL rose just seemed so inviting!
Mind you now that I am thinking about it that sounds like something I would enjoy in RL, so I will chat with you later and hope that you too had a good lazy weekend!

Hair: TRUTH - Azalea in Reds

Insane and needing Glass

Is it just me or is Christmas Shopping a NIGHTMARE?! YES I know it's not even December, but as I have said before in Holland there is a Dutch Tradition called "Sinterklaas" which means that basically there are two similar Christmassy Holidays here - on on December 5th and the other December 25th. Normally I think less about Sinterklaas and focus on Christmas, but this year I will not be able to go to England and so my parents have decided to come over for Sinterklaas!!! So that means I now have to find more presents and therefore fight the shopping crowds earlier! 
I tried to be smart and do some of my shopping online but sometimes it doesn't work out that way... Today HellBone and I braved the RL shopping crowds, oh my gosh it's like a fight out there... Everyone hustling to get stuff... It's a wonder that people don't actually start fighting! There seems to be only one word that describes it... 
Insane! I cannot believe the level of stress that shopping for one event a year seems to create LOL! Trust me for those of you that do not have Sinterklaas, if you thought shopping for one Christmas-style Holiday was bad, try having TWO in the same month LOL... 
If my Kibitz Collar doesn't summon it up then maybe the fact that I have gone more than my average level of crazy and shoved shards of glass in my chest - courtesy of SongBird by the way - while allowing the blood to splatter my glasses will make you believe me!
Still once all that was done, and we had a lot of shopping to do for the Sinterklaas festivities - since HellBone was buying tons of gifts for people that he works with in BACA - I find myself thinking I need more glass LOL - I have so much gift wrapping to do!! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Ember in Behind Reds

Picnics in the Park

Friday is here, and that means that tomorrow is the weekend!!! Although I still work on the weekends - there is no rest of the wicked - I still find it the best time to just kick back and relax. I need it bad at the moment, a chance to relax and not think about anything - though I may allow myself a little shopping trip as I need to get presents for my parents for the Dutch holiday of Sinterklaas!
If it's sunny I may even take a walk through the local park with my dog... Never know could stop and have a picnic like Rudh did at It all starts with a smile!
I love this sim, it's a pretty location that changes with the season and for the Autumn season it's divine... I wish colours were this vibrant in RL all the time... It's the perfect place to stop, while wrapped up warm and snug, for a picnic... 
Talking of being wrapped up I have to spend a couple of minutes just telling you about my two new and favourite Autumn closet must-haves... The sweater that I am wearing is one of these - it's a Dead Dollz Reagan Sweater in Khaki, although they come in other colours too, and it's SO warm and snug looking, and I LOVE the floppy over the hands sleeves. It looks awesome when paired with my gorgeous new [sYs] scarf that comes in a whole range of different colours and is available at this month's Chapter Four too... 
Just one more thing deserving honourable mention... It's not something that I would ever normally even think about wearing but it looked so perfect with this outfit. In RL I am crazy about bags, I have them in all different shapes, sizes, colours and styles - just ask HellBone - but I never normally bother with them too much in SL... Yet these Leaf Bags from PSYCHO.Byts are so cute, how can you not fall in love with them if you have a bag fetish! 
I hope that there is some hot soup in that flask I'd really like some hot soup right now!!!

Pup in my Cup

I am one of those people that wakes up and needs coffee in the morning... Actually I don't really NEED it but you know it's nice to wake up and have some coffee.... 
This morning though, while I was drinking my coffee I noticed a little bit of a problem! Instead of a hot cuppa coffee, there was life in my cup - and I'm not talking about the wake up juice that is Coffee - I'm talking about living and breathing life... 
In my coffee mug this morning, I found a tiny little PeeWee Puff Puppy in my mug - a puppy from Jian - and as excited as I was to find a new puppy, I was more than a little bit grumpy. I blame that on a lack of caffeine LOL... 
I'd spent ages getting dressed, you have no idea how long it really takes, even after I'd remembered the brand new items that I had from Petite Mort. Tres Chic is starting today at 12PM SLT and it runs until December 10th. These new Cropped Mock Turtlenacks and Suede Lace Up Shorts are available as the exclusive new release, in the usual mix-n-match manner, in the Petite Mort booth...

Trapped in a Dream of the Future

Sometimes you have days when you feel like you are floating... While your body goes through the motions and tries to carry on as normal, your mind drifts and floats, and it's at times like these when it's very hard to feel a true sense of normality. Today is one of those days for me... I feel like I'm in a dream... 
I got a little over the top creative, and I'm not sure how well I did with it or not... 
My mind went to a place where you're able to glimpse the future... In this case an evil dead dolly, holding what appears to be something powerful, a sceptre or a staff perhaps - in this case a Violetility Void Staff... She has undergone a transformation of sorts, no longer just a living dead doll, now she has added vampire fangs and a wound marking her as truly evil... She'd finally found her calling! 
I don't honestly know why I am in an evil mood today, I'm very tired yes, but had a very much needed date night to a concert in RL with HellBone, so I should be happy lol...
In fact, I think I need to stop talking, maybe I'll take a nap and try to get rid of this sleepy feeling... I'll let you enjoy this pretty dream of mine, and a little of the band I went to see last night as a treat! 
What is she wearing;
Halo: [CerberusXing] - Tsukiyomi's Halo in Black
Hair: Truth - Neria in Reds

Space Signal

I have a cold... I feel like I'm not on the planet as everything feels muted, dull and full of fluff! I could be floating around in space - which would be alright if I wasn't terrified by the thought - or trapped in a bubble at least. Being in space is the last place I'd ever want to be I have to say, but when I was sent a lovely gift from a friend and had just bought an outfit that seemed to work perfectly with it, I had to just be brave and go exploring!
Aggie McTavish of Stargazer Creations was kind enough to send me a copy of her "Iced" Skin - that has been released for the latest round of We <3 RP which runs until November 30th. Now admitedly with a name like Iced, I could have gone with something frozen and wintery feeling, but it was the addition of this adorable PVC Koharu Outfit Set - from r2 at Collabor88 - which took me from ice demon to space babe!
A space babe that is trying to use her new brocante walkie-talkie from the INSPIRE Space Park no less... If only she could get a signal up here...

Fighting the Walking Dead

Monday Morning comes again... It's a time of the week that sounds dreadful but isn't actually that bad - least I'm beginning to think that way - Tuesday morning always seems worse somehow?! Yet I am not denying that it is always a struggle to get myself up in the morning on a Monday morning.
There is just one thing that brightens up my Mondays at the moment and that's the fact that it is Walking Dead Night tonight. I am not a fan of the show, but HellBone is, which means that Monday Nights are awesome because I get a full hour of alone in bed time!!
In homage to The Walking Dead - yes I have no idea what I'm really doing here because I have no idea about the show at all, but you know me I enjoy being dead lol...
The pose I am using is perfect for that... It's a Come Soon Swag Bag Pose Prop - from last month's Swag Bag - called End of Line. If I'm going to be taken out, then I am taking out everyone else with me!
The outfit was one of the real reasons that I wanted to use this pose - for some reason they just seemed to fit together so well! The body suit and matching collar is a Salt & Pepper creation called Cyberized that you can win from a gacha machine in various colours and combinations at The Gacha Garden. It seemed perfectly accessorised with this Chained Mask and the Survivor Holster - both from The Little Bat that I found during the Pulse Games Event this year!
Bring on the Walking Dead... I'm ready to go to bed!

Hair: Besom - Glam Kitty

Dinner of the Dutch

It's nearly dinner time on Sunday Night here in Holland, and for that I can say I am really greatful... Not only does it mean that it is nearly bed time, but it is in fact time to eat and I am STARVING! 
Now that it's nearly dinner time and HellBone is finally cooking something really yummy smelling in the kitchen, my taste buds will not stop watering! 
Dutch food was something that took me a long time to get used to, I mean of course we eat everything in Holland that we'd normally eat in England, but for some reason certain things were harder to understand than others... 
Recently, the 6 Republic event opened featuring Amsterdam as one of it's locations...  
I don't understand why it is Amsterdam and Australia, I mean shouldn't it be Holland and Australia or Amsterdam and Sydney? Not that I am complaining... Some of the designer in the Dutch part of the event went to town on creating perfect Dutch things, there were windmills and more shops offering drugs than I can count - although there was a lack of clogs, cheese and hookers I feel - but one of the designers, the store C L A Vv made some yummy looking Dutch foods... So for dinner in SL tonight I am going to have a bowl of Snert - that's Pea Soup to any non-Dutch speakers out there - followed by Stamppot - which is a traditional Dutch meal of something mashed into potatoes served with smoke sausage - and a tompouce for dessert, all washed down with a cup of tea and a naughty stroopwafel - caramel cookie! 
OH AND while I am here, for those of you that are looking at it thinking "Oh that's cute" - my outfit is an upcoming release from Cosmic Dust for the new round of Kustom9, which starts on the 15th. It's in a Gacha, and the skirts and tops are separates which come in a range of different colours! So cute, and I love that they are mix-n-match pieces!!
OH YAY, I'm being called for Dinner!! Grubs Up!! As they say in Holland "Eet Smakelijk!"

November 11th: Remembering Them...

It's November 11th... Today for the British it's a Remembrance Day. A day of peace, respect and thought in which people all over the country stop for a moment or two and think back on all of the people that have lost their lives to protect our little island nation. 
Remembered on November 11th at 11.11AM, the exact time that WWI was declared over in 1918, I always take a moment or two to stop and to think and although I'm not religious, offer a silent thank you to those people. Other places in the world do this on different days - the Dutch for example have remembrance day on May 4th to mark the close of WWII - but right now, I sit back and wonder what those men and women who have lost their lives fighting for Britain throughout history would make of Ol'Blighty now... 
Traditionally in the UK, Remembrance Day is marked with Poppies, as they were the blood red flowers which bloom over the battle fields in France, and I did just buy some lovely poppies in SL which would have been perfect to memorialise things, but then I found this pose prop from Come Soon - called Lady Autumn - and the white roses just seemed like poignant hints at peace... The world could do with a little more peace nowadays, don't you think?! 
As always with Come Soon Poses, the pose comes with a full scene and just the option to use the pose alone - here I was a little naughty and used the chair and roses along with the pose - but by having the tank and the sandbags - available from H&C Wheels by the way - I brought the memorial to life a little!
Let's make today, and all the days following, a day of peace! I know that it's a lot to ask but isn't it about the time world was allowed that?

Hair: Magika - Friday in 02

Snuggling up on Cold Days

I LOVE this time of year... It's a bit bloody cold but hey I freaking love that! I've never been a fan of the hot weather and always find myself jumping for joy a little when the cold seasons start. 
I love being able to snuggle down, wrap up warm and cuddle a cup of tea. Nothing makes me happier than curling up with a cuppa when it's quiet and I'm under a blanket with a few candles and the fairy lights that I use in my living room twinkling away. 
I think though, recently I found my new favourite sofa to do just that on... I just wish I had one in RL lol... It's never a Sad November when you can have a sofa like this!!! 
My "Sad November" Sofa is actually my new happy place... A cosy Sweater Couch - from the great mind behind a very versatile store, Violetility, which if you haven't been to yet I will tell you now is a rising star in the shopping world! - that just calls for you to snuggle up with a cup of tea and in my case some knitting! I have a knitting pattern from tres blah that I am trying out, and my tea always tastes better in my IMBUE brand mug LOL, but that's just crazy talk! 
Anyone want to curl up with me?! Bring me a cuppa tea??

Frankenstein's Girl... All Grown Up!

On a night when the world seems to be holding it's breath and watching what is going on in America, it seems like the perfect night for the monsters to come out to play again. Yes Halloween is over but while the world waits on tenderhooks for a result that most of us have no power to influence, it really does feel like the monstrous could take control... You never know that may actually really happen that the monsters do?! 
So me being me, I decided why not be a monster myself... Something with a little kick-butt, feisty side...
A modern Miss Frankenstein! The kind that rebels against her creator and rocks out with the demons of Heavy Metal! Luckily her room - or in this case a photo location at WHOLE WHEAT - is easy to slip out of so she can dance the night away!
With her hair freshly styled by RunAway and her new jacket - from *X*Plosion fitting perfectly with her new glasses - from Atomic at No.21 - this little monster has grown up and moved on from her Monster High school and is now hanging with the big monsters... 

What is she wearing;
Hair: [RunAway] - Shelley Hair in Essentials
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2
Glasses: [Atomic] - Night Creature Shades in Set 1 (Available until November 12th at No.21)
Choker: Suicidal Unborn - Lynexia Collar
Jacket: *X*Plosion - RockDust Jacket
Top: ma.line - Aria Top in Black
Pose: Image Essentials - Fresh 3
