Pandora's Box Opens

Can you feel that magical feeling in the air... Something awesome has happened... Something dark but special has begun... PANDORA'S BOX IS OFFICIALLY OPEN!
Two days ago, the first ever Pandora's Box - Second Life's Loot Box that caters to the dark and alternative side of life - was released and has now opened. It's filled with some wonderful things, from some of Second Life's awesome gothic inspired designers and I cannot wait to share the wonderful things with you... 
Let's start by revealing just a little of the magic within... A few of Pandora's little May gifties... 
For some reason I was drawn to a magick shoppe on Arranmore by the gifts but as soon as I lit my first candle - one of a pose set for Pandora's Box by BellePoses by the way - I couldn't help but be overcome by excitement... Pandora's Box is AWESOME!
My first look into the box allowed me to create this cute outfit... A pretty dress from Barely Legal Couture called Perspicuity. The dress is black with a very subtle lace detail, but you also get a semi-sheer version too!! Then because Rudh is a bit of a diva, she accessorised with some of the Dark Days Sunglasses that 1313 Mockingbird Lane put into Pandora's Box, and a Zombie Suicide Beauty Head Chain too...
Now for the important stuff... A few days ago I wrote a post about Pandora's Box and the way that it works... I'd advise you to check out my previous post - Pandora's Box is coming! Wanna know more? - but as a basic reminder, the best place to go to sign up for your box is the Pandora's Box HQ. Now that the box has been opened the cost will be 2500L, which will allow you to join the group and get your box - bear in mind though that you only have until May 30th to do so - and all those wonderful goodies will be yours. Then after the last day in May the group will be emptied and sign up begins for the following month's box - which if you join the group before the release date will be 1500L! You can get more information about this at the Pandora's Box Website!! 
Her gaze may be drawn to that candle's flame but her mind still lingers on the contents of the Pandora's Box... There are still many more pretties to share with you, but you may have to wait a day or two... The box holds many wonders... Dare you to get your own and look on the inside for yourself!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Taja in Reds
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2
Head Jewel: Zombie Suicide - Beauty Head Chain (Available in the Pandora's Box for May)
Glasses: 1313 Mockingbird Lane - Dark Days Sunglasses (Available in the Pandora's Box for May)

April Showers bring May Flowers

It's a lovely sunny but cool Sunday here in Holland, but I'm not really finding myself able to enjoy it. Last night I did not get enough sleep, and I'm suffering with a feeling of needing to wake up today. I cannot wait until it's bedtime. 
Still it's time to make the most of that lovely Spring weather I guess... Spring is such a pretty season with all the plants coming into flower. There is an abundance of colour and fresh scent and it's just lovely. So with that in mind, today's post is a spring pretty!!! 
All kinds of different things are used to influence my random stylings... Today it's the turn of some gorgeous forsythia flowers. The collection of Forsythia Flowers is a gacha set from LODE - it also includes a different headdress and some decorative display pieces. They are just so pretty and such a lovely colour that I couldn't resist doing something with them hehe... 
Then to go with the flowers I needed a pretty outfit, something light and girlie, that's when this dress and swimsuit came into their use. The dress is one called Raini - from Aluetia - which I decided to wear over a new swimsuit from CHAIN. They seemed to work really well together as an outfit, and when you add the flowers it was just perfect - add to that the gorgeous location at Luanes World and VOILÀ pretty look of the day, thank you very much hehe... 

What is she wearing;
Flowers (Crown, Butterflies & Bouquet): LODE - Forsythia Gacha Items 
Hair: Truth - Kora in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Face Wound: Ama - Facial Scarification in Visions (Available until May 24th at The Coven
Dress: [Aleutia] - Raini 
Underwear: CHAIN - Fiona Swimsuit in Olive (Available until June 3rd at Whimsical
Pose: Signature Pose - Bitch Tits

All I See Is Red Roses

I'm one of those people that creates lots of different looks and photographs them so that I have all kinds of different things ready to ramble on about depending on my mood. Today though is one of those days when I'm looking at all the pictures, thinking to myself "what the hell do I wanna blog today?" I KNOW I wanna do something, but I have no idea what, so you're getting a random look of the day out of me today and I hope that you like it LOL... I know I love what I've chosen, maybe you will too?! 
It's something a little bit dark, a little bit macabre but also in a weird twisted way, it's kinda cute too... It's also making me sing songs from Disney's Alice in Wonderland - the original - about Painting Roses Red LOL... 
The look was one that started because of a dress. A dress by a designer that was taking a bit of an SL design break, but couldn't resist dipping her top in the water again for The Dark Style Fair - which runs until May 22nd by the way. I cannot say that I blame her, I mean I get itchy when I don't blog, so no wonder she came out of design hiatus to create a little something that scratches that itch!
OK, enough rambling, the dress in question is one by adoness called Mortalia. It comes in a range of different colours - on black but the colour variation in in the Roses just so you know - and it features an adorable skeleton and rose design, which as you may have guessed is where the rose thing came in LOL...
Then I simply had to accessories with more roses, including the awesome "All I see" Eye Accessory from Ama, which you can also get your hands on at The Dark Style Fair, and some pretty roses that accessories this La Bella Donna Hair from Clawtooth.
It was at that point that I decided I needed to hunt for a background... I found the perfect place. It's a little wedding chapel tucked away down a back alley at WHOLE WHEAT and it's FULL of roses!!! It was a match made in heaven for my outfit LOL...
One last thing before I leave... Am I mean enough to share the Alice in Wonderland song that's been stuck in my head since I made this picture?? YES, Yes I am!!!
What is she wearing;
Hair: Clawtooth - La Bella Donna in Outrageous
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2
Eyes & Make-Up: Ama - All I see (Available until May 22nd at The Dark Style Fair 4)
Dress: adoness - Mortalia Dress in Love Rose (Available until May 22nd at The Dark Style Fair 4)
Pose: Image Essentials - Anna 8, V2 Set (Available until May 31st at Designer Showcase)

Colours get blown away...

It's amazing how much the weather can change at the moment. Close your eyes for a nights sleep and it can go from blisteringly hot to somewhat chilly without a moment to pause in between. Last night was so bad, that I ended up suffering with a little heatstroke and migraine by the time I went to bed, and this morning - in fact all day today - it's been bearable and not over hot! Bit scared to go to sleep tonight, I might wake up tomorrow and see snow at this rate LOL... 
Still from yesterdays trip to the beach, today Rudh has again been inspired by the change in the weather and she's now somewhere cold, dark and windy!! 
Still a beach, but a beach that's not so bright and sunny at least... There's a strong breeze in the air, at least there was when she visited Jacks at NorderNey, and her inner demons are being called out by such a strong natural force, hence the change in her looks... 
The wind blew hard through her hair - which is actually a Pink Hustler Disordered Hair Style by the way - so hard that the colour was blown clean out of it while at the same time knotting it around her horns. 
The horns and her eyes in fact are new releases from Nightmare - for the current round of Memento Mori that runs until May 27th. The Thilrae Horns are naturally textured demon horns, each colour with it's own ability to change the colours of the metallic jewellery that adorns them. The Mori Eyes are really gorgeous - and typically my photo doesn't really do them justice so I will be helpful and include the store ad below too - but they are demonic eyes which come in 10 different colours that can be mix-n-matched or worn so that both eyes are the same. 
Now all the colour has been blown away, it looks like I need to go buy some hair dye LOL... Have to keep my hair looking red and feisty!!!

What is she wearing;
Horns: Nightmare - Thilrae Horns (Available until May 27th at Memento Mori
Hair: Pink Hustler - Disordered Hair II in #2-2 (Available until May 18th at SaNaRae
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Eyes: Nightmare - Mori Eyes (Available until May 27th at Memento Mori
Collar: Mons - Extreme Choker in Silver 
Pose: Signature Pose - Oh Hai, Pose Set 26

Cooling off on the Beach

The summer seems to have finally shown it's pretty warm head here in Holland over the past two days and BLIMEY IT'S HOT!!! I know I shouldn't complain after the long gray Winter that we've had but seriously it's like the temperature has jumped way up and rather than being nice warm, it's humid sticky warm!!! UGH!!! I'm so not a girl that is built for the warm summer weather! Sunshine I love, but not the heat LOL... 
I'm going to take a leaf out of Rudh's book today and head to the beach!!! 
She looks like she's going to have some fun while she cools down!!! I'm a little jealous of her right now! She's on a gorgeous beach at Baja Norte, with an awesome looking Ice Cream that she picked up from Black Bantam and it really looks like there is a cool breeze blowing through her newly styled Pink Hustler Hair. 
She's wearing such an adorable beach-ish outfit, that seems perfect for spring. It's a brand new release, a mix-n-match set, from WONDERLOST that is available at the newest round of The Secret Affair. I love mix-n-match outfits because they give you a little more freedom in putting a look together, and this one is just super cute. It goes so well with the Cute Bear Backpacks, that are also available in the WONDERLOST booth at The Secret Affair. 
It's weird that feeling of being jealous of your avatar though LOL, I want to be on the beach like she is right now and I'm jealous of that, has anyone else ever experienced that feeling? 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Pink Hustler - Disordered Hair II in #4-3 (Available until May 18th at SaNaRae
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Top: WONDERLOST - Gwen Top (Available until May 31st at The Secret Affair

Dancer Days Flashbacks!

Ladies and Gentlemen, it's time to get a little naughty... I know that shouldn't come as a surprise, but I've been a very good girl for a while now and I want to let out some of the naughty before it explodes out of me with a bang! It's not as naughty as I have been before, and I promise you it's in the name of art designed to show off some of my new stuff!! 
It may look like Rudh on a pole, and well... It is Rudh on a pole, but there is more to it than just a picture of the Living Dead Dolly going back too her roots as a stripper!!! 
Aside from the fact that she has no problem getting naked and showing off to anyone that will dare to look, there is a real reason for her being naked today. 
Two awesome new things came into my possession and I'm showcasing them now, even though it's kinda a flashback to her past as a stripper which I mentioned before. 
Showing Tattoos is something that I'm still really kind of learning about, but it seems easier when there is less of a clothing hindrance LOL... The tattoo on her leg is a newish release from Vestigium, which is available until May 31st at The Darkness Monthly Event, called Fractal. I LOVE tattoos that are fractal or mandala patterns, so this made me a little excited, and that's why I simply couldn't resist getting naked - well very nearly naked anyway - to show it off! 
The reason she is on a pole is actually a new release from a store I love too... This Dance Pole is a release from Violetility at ROMP for May. They made lots of fun new cages - one of which you will get to see in the next few days - but this pole with both dances for male and female dancers, as well as static poses was something that I played with for a while!! Just a shame I had no one to dance for really!!! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Tableau Vivant - Hairplay in Front Blow Redheads 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Tattoo: Vestigium - Fractal (Available until May 31st at The Darkness Monthly Event
Garter: - Bitch Garter (No Longer Available!)
Pose & Prop: Violetility - Dance Pole (Available until May 26th at ROMP
Bra: Gumi's Flower Shop - Bras in Bra B

She's totally Miss Understood!

Ugh I think I'm having one of those weeks at the moment, and the week has only just started. I find myself feeling lost and confused and bored all at once, with no real direction as to what I want to do with myself or the time that I have... I start something then get bored and move to another task with no real focus and it's beginning to drive me nuts! I think being stuck at home doesn't help, I'm not used to it anymore after working as much as I did, and now rather than enjoying sitting behind my PC playing around in Second Life I find myself itching to go out into the Real World. Maybe I'm complaining too much... I just feel a bit strange... A little lost and maybe somewhat misunderstood... 
Rudh is joining in on the Misunderstood feeling, only she is taking things literally... Miss Understood, is about right for Rudh and she definitely deserves to win the title of Miss Understood LOL... She's so confusing sometimes with her multiple personalities and characters, that even I have trouble understanding where she is LOL... 
Taken at the WHOLE WHEAT sim after her coronation as Miss Understood, it's kinda easy to see why Rudh may have won. She's dressed in a very pretty outfit - available from Oubliette at anyBody this month - but there are indications of things that show she's not just a pretty face and that there is a lot more craziness beneath the surface. A glaringly obvious example of that is that she's looking a little bonier these days... 
I LOVE these bone parts, they are a Sliced Torso from CURELESS and oh my gosh as soon as I saw them I HAD to have them.  You too can get some, they are available until May 27th at Memento Mori!! 
There's just one more thing that I probably should add here as a side note away from my ramblings. The pose that I've used is a bit of an amalgamation. It's a Signature Pose called "I'll Try" but I wanted to show a little love as she just won the Miss Understood Crown so I actually used the Image Essentials Hand Heart AO Companion which made the hands into the heart shape. I hope I'm not going to get into trouble for mixing up pose stores like this but it just worked so well together, and it shows that the Hand Heart AO looks great however it's used!! 
She's beauty and she's grace... She's totally Miss Understood!!! 

What is she wearing;
Tiara: Blueberry - Iconic Doll Tiara in #29 Silver 
Hair: TRUTH - Kare (May Group Gift) 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Collar: Wimey - Slut Collar 
Sash: [Commoner] - Pageant Sash in Miss Understood 
Outfit: Oubliette - Fiona Outfit in Toffee (Available until May 31st at anyBody
Skeleton Parts: CURELESS - Sliced Torso in Bone (Available until May 27th at Memento Mori
Pose: Signature Pose - I'll Try, Pose Set 26 
Hand Pose: Image Essentials - Hand Heart AO Companion

Lazy Sunday for the Dead Doll

Ahhhh Lazy Sunday... A morning of peace, relaxation and staying in your PJs. It's something that everyone should do, and something that I know I enjoy quiet a bit... Work comes later, but right now I'm going to be taking it easy lol! Have a very important wedding to go to later in SL, not one but two of our Gators are getting married - yes to each other it's not two weddings in one day - and so I'll be playing proud Momma Gator, but as I already said, for now, relaxation in my jammies time! 
Rudh is going to be doing the same, but I'm not sure if you've noticed or not that Rudh is a little bit different LOL... As a living dead doll she doesn't even sleep like a normal person - choosing instead a sexy looking coffin, that forms part of a pose called "Dreams" from Come Soon Poses available until May 22nd at The Dark Style Fair! She's such a deep sleeper that even standing up doesn't seem to bother her,Count Bearcula can't stand sleeping upright but for Rudh it's not a problem apparently!!! If you look really closely you will even notice that the not-so-sleeping-beauty is actually drooling too!!! So attractive isn't she?!
Although, while on the subject of The Dark Style Fair, I mustn't forget to point out this AWESOME Outfit by WONDERLOST. I'm not sure if it's meant to be Pyjamas, but you know Rudh's a little bit weird at the best of times! The Zoie Outfit from WONDERLOST comes in a collection of different mix-n-match tops and bottoms, and make comfy looking outfits for the girl who loves the darker side of life. It's great that you can combine pieces in your own way, it's letting us be creative and that always makes me happy!!!
Maybe I should wake her though, she will need a lot of primping and preening to get her ready for the wedding today... Someone open the curtains and let in a little more light perhaps? 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Ember in Reds
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2
Mouth Blood: Arise - Blood Lip in Tone 3
Drool: Arise - Lip Drool
Necklace: [CerberusXing] - Heretic's Toy (Available until May 27th at Memento Mori
Outfit: WONDERLOST - Zoie Outfit (Available until May 22nd at The Dark Style Fair 4
Pose & Prop: Come Soon - Dreams (Available until May 22nd at The Dark Style Fair 4)
Bear: BoOgErS - Count Bearcula

Pandora's Box is coming! Wanna know more?

Can you hear that?? The wind is whistling through the keyhole of a brand new Loot Box that is coming to Second Life this month... There isn't long left now and very soon Pandora's Box will open to reveal it's deep, dark and most treasured secrets. 
Locked inside this gothic little loot box, those of us with a darker side will find treasures abound, from some very cool designers with a penchant for the more alternative side of Second Life. 
Today, I'm not planning on sharing the pretties that are the hidden contents, instead I'm going to give you the details so that you too can be the bearer of your very own key to Pandora's Box... 
Let me start at the very beginning - because as Julie Andrews once said "it's a very good place to start"... For those of you that have no idea what a loot box is - where have you been hiding for the last 6 months or so - this seems to be a new craze that's gripped many members of Second Life, and like the Gacha craze there is a small element of chance with each and every box... 
Basically, you pay a set amount of money - in the case of the Pandora's Box the initial amount is 1500L - and are able to join a group, which you need to remain a member of until the box is released on the 22nd of each month. Then on the 22nd of the month, if you're in the group, you will be sent your very own Pandora's Box filled with goodies from 10 different designers - that you can see listed in the picture above - and that's where the chance comes into play, because there's a chance you won't like things inside, but there's also a chance that you will LOVE everything in the box... Risk is, you won't know what you're getting till you get the box!!!!! Isn't it exciting?!
HOWEVER, if you decide you want to wait until things start being shown off by bloggers and designers alike, then you're able to do so... After the box is released on the 22nd of the month, the group will remain open - although the cost to join will increase to 2500L - and you will be able to get all the goodies inside! If this is your plan though you will need to hurry! On the 30th of each month, the group will be cleared and the whole process will start again for the coming month!! 
Sounds simple right? If you have more questions then you may want to check out the Pandora's Box Website, and then head on down to the Pandora's Box HQ or one of the sponsoring stores to subscribe at the Pandora's Box Vendors or search for the Pandora's Box group in-world!!!
I'm really excited to see where this alternative loot box will take us and cannot wait to see the surprises inside!!!! Are you going to dig into the box with me?! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: TRUTH - Kare (May Group Gift)
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Nose Piercing: (Yummy) - Skull Collection Septum in Silver 
Lip Piercing: Cute Poison - Wounded 
Rings: Ama - Simplicity Rings in Silver 
Pose: Signature Poses - Classic

Time for a little Walk!

Something peaceful but I need to do something that isn't being stuck in the house today... I need to get motivated and I think that maybe a walk in the nature might be a good idea for me. Maybe as soon as I'm done here I will take my RL doggie out for a walk, but until that moment I'm going to get Rudh to do the same... It's walkies time!!!
In SL, Rudh picked up her newest pooch companion, a Splendid Spaniel - from Jian available at The Epiphany until May 15th - and went exploring at a place called Whimberly
Now while we're out walking, I do have to admit that I have a little confession to make to you, it's a confession about my outfit... 
This outfit was a release from Petite Mort for the recently closed round of Trés Chic. YES I KNOW, it's just closed a couple of days ago, BUT the outfit - which is made up of Chiffon Scarf Tops and Flap-Pocket Denim Shorts in a variety of different colours and patterns - will be made available at the mainstore very soon I hope!! It's a perfect mix-n-match Springtime outfit, and if you LOVE looking feminine and pretty, then this is definitely a go to set for you!!! 
Right now, it's time for a walk... 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Tempest in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Top: Petite Mort - Chiffon Scarf Top in Blue Floral
Shorts: Petite Mort - Flap-Pocket Denim Shorts in Dy Stnwsh
Pose: Image Essentials - Sultry V1 Pose 2 
Pet: JIAN - Splendid Spaniels in 14 Blenheim Held (Available until May 15th at The Epiphany

Relaxing on the Beach

I really, really need a holiday... I want some time away to just close my eyes and rest, and YES OK so I just went away for a few days, but it's been so busy that now I need a chance to just put my feet up LOL. Oh well, I guess I will have to make my way to the UK soon for some relaxation time! 
Until then I'm lucky enough to be able to put Rudh on any beach and feel like I'm somewhere exotic thanks to Second Life. 
In fact that is exactly what I am going to do lol, just get Rudh all beachified, and go get some relaxing done!!! 
One of my favourite beach locations in Second Life is a place called Baja Sands - a location created by the awesome Lauren Bentham - it's peaceful and fun all rolled into one, and comes complete with the usual Bentham flair for design. 
She's really having a beach day - the sun and the salt water have faded the dye in her hair making it pink and she's wearing a dress that is both revealing and concealing all at the same time. Tassels are so cute on a beach dress I think, and OK maybe this new Nightmare release - called Midiv which is available at the mainstore - is not meant for the beach but it seems perfect!!! 
The dress is also perfect for revealing a new tattoo that Rudh got herself inked with from Vestigium. The Vinayaka Tattoo is somewhat tribal, somewhat ethnic and a dash native Indian, but it's a pretty pattern that covers the chest and upper arms and, even if I do say so myself it's a great beach summer accessory hehe... 
Now if only I could find someone to get me a fruity drink in a coconut?! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Wasabi Pills - Ariel in Crystal Pink 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Collar: Kibitz - Elsa Collar 
Tattoo: Vestigium - Vinayaka 
Dress: Nightmare - Midív Dress 
Bracelets: Kibitz - Grunge Accessories in Jelly Bangles (Past Bishbox Release) 
Pose: Image Essentials - Kai in Demen 3

I'm Like 300% Tired!

Oh my gosh, the weekend just flew by and I'm now back home... I'm absolutely exhausted, but truly happy as I had a very magical - although there were a few hiccups - weekend. We celebrated my parents 40th wedding anniversary at EuroDisney as a family, and although the weather was a bit on the crap side - not mentioning the other hiccups - we all had a wonderful time. I've always loved how Disney makes things feel magical. I wore a huge grin, and even got a little emotional at certain points but after 2 days in the Magical Park and a 7 hour drive home, I find myself feeling totally and utterly shattered!! 
I wish I could just spend the day sleeping, but that would be a waste of a day wouldn't it?! I have to get my lazy butt into gear and keep moving or I will not be able to walk again after the walking that we did in the last two days LOL... Though sleep really does sound much nicer right now! 
I'm so RL tired that it's even affecting poor Rudh! She wasn't allowed to go to Disneyland and now she has to suffer the tiredness too LOL... Still for her lazing around in her PJs all day today will be a little more acceptable! 
You have to love her PJs, they are a combination of some Cozy Shorts from Reign and this awesome slogan printed Messy Sleeper Shirt from [Fetch]. I was kind enough to let her have some Minnie Mouse Ears after my trip though so it wasn't all mean of me. 
I'm so sleepy I'm going to wish upon a star and will hopefully feel more alive in the morning! 

What is she wearing; 
Ears: [Auxiliary] - Gacha Mouse Ears Bow in Black4 (No Longer Available!)
Hair: Pink Hustler - Disordered Hair II in #5-3 (Available until May 18th at SaNaRae
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Make-Up: Izzie's - Insomnia

Shorts: Reign - Cozy Shorts in Cotton #4 
Bed: floorplan - Nap Tub in Polka Dots RARE

I'm off to the House of the Mouse

Oh my gosh it's finally here, the eve of the day before I disappear for a few days!! I mentioned it before but tomorrow is the special family trip that has been planned for a while and it's finally here. TOMORROW I'M GOING TO EURODISNEY!!
My parents are celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary on Sunday May 7th, and decided that they would like to do a special family trip to the house of the mouse. Dad keeps telling everyone he's taking a trip with his little girls, my sister and I are now in our late 20s and early 30s, but we're not about to burst his bubble - both of us are die hard Disney fans - even if it does mean we have to endure the Small World ride more than once LOL...
Rudh will not be coming with me though, I'm going to be MIA for a few days, and she was a little sad about it, but I made it up to her by finding an awesome Disney Tribute location in SL called ForeverLand. If you want a park of Magic, and have a craving for Disney, then THIS is the place to go to see the characters! 
I even let her get dressed up - though I have a feeling her outfit might get her kicked out of the real Disneyland... She found her top, which is part of a set of characters from a store called TOXICDOLLS - and as Pluto is Hell's favourite that's the one she went for. She punked things up with some awesome spiked jewellery - available from Suicidal Unborn at The Dark Style Fair, and even pulled on a pair of punkish Minnie Mouse Ears - from Dirtyland - anything in an attempt to get me to allow her to come too... 
No such luck Rudh, I'm going without you this weekend, but never fear everyone, not long and I will be back home! 
Right now though I'm so excited so I will bid you adieu and see you on Wednesday!!! 

What is she wearing;
Ears: Dirtyland - Crappy Minnie Headband (No Longer Available!)
Hair: Wasabi Pills - Viola in FLF Exclusive Colour Pack 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2

Time Flies Chaotically

Time flies! It's a phrase I'd heard a lot when I was younger but never fully believed! People always say "Time Flies when you're having fun" yet as I'm getting older, it seems that whether I'm having fun or not time is flying by. It doesn't feel like long ago that it was Christmas, and now it's already May and I'm getting ready for the super exciting family trip this weekend! More about that later, but while we're on the subject of time flying, I'll share a little hint and an awesome collection with you...
This look is one that belongs in Wonderland. OK so maybe it's not a true Wonderlandian Character but I kinda feel like a role could be created for her, just because she fits the style and idea. 
The backdrop is this gorgeous photo location at WHOLE WHEAT, that's all about Wonderland, and it just all seemed to fit together perfectly. 
The dress she is wearing is a Blueberry Cocodoll in Sky, that is available from The Epiphany. Though that isn't the only Epiphany in this picture. The entire reason that this look came about is all because of the store DISORDERLY. For the latest round of The Epiphany - which runs until May 15th - Disorderly have created a gacha collection called "Chaotic Clockwork". Shown here are the Halo, Head and one of the Cages, but there are other things in the collection that I couldn't show like a trapped clock cage, a cane, wings and tiaras!

Hell Master's Pet

The dark and macabre side of myself is REALLY enjoying things that are going on in Second Life at the moment. There are so many shopping events that are catering for that side of me right now that I cannot help but feel that Halloween has come a little early - and I'm really not complaining about it! My Dead Doll side is positively giddy with joy at the moment. 
This time it's something a little more demonic than dead which has taken control... Anyone fancy a trip somewhere dark and rather hot? Today, this blogger is driving the bus straight to Hell! 
Jokes about Hell are a constant around the group of friends I have in SL - HellBone being my hubby and everyone referring to him as Hell, I mean - but joking aside there are many warnings with today's look about my dangerous side. 
A brand on my stomach that demands "Take me to Hell" - from AsteroidBox at The Gacha Garden - is my request but it's clear from my necklaces that Hell is where I was made - thanks to Lovely Disarray at Dark Side Fair 4, but all things considered, everything will be OK so long as I don't eat! 
While this cursed demoness wanders through the Angels & Demons Hell Location, the blood of her last meal staining her lips, she slips out of her clothing and remains locked in her lingerie - a set called Taboo by !dM deviousMind from Memento Mori - and enjoys the fiery warmth of Hell, her Master's Abode! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Arwen in Reds 
Horns & Wounds: {aii} - Kintsukuroi Horns 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Face Wound: CURELESS - Curse of Cain 
Eyes: [theSkinnery] - Demon Eyes 3

Bad Spells summon the Ghosts

One of my favourite events in SL is back again for a new round and I am like a kid in a candy store at Christmas that's more than a little excitable! Then what with the opening of The Dark Style Fair too, I'm giddy with excitement and need to calm down a bit before I pass out LOL... 
It brings out my dead doll side and created a great amount of creativity, I was a happy girl with a LONG shopping list and well... It's like Halloween comes every 4 months!! I LOVE HALLOWEEN!!! 
The darkness and macabreness of this event draws me in, reaching out with ghostly hands luring me in to play in the dark graveyard... 
I'm talking about the event called Memento Mori - the best event dedicated to the dark, macabre, and horrific! It's definitely my favourite event, and I get sad that I have to wait for 3 months between each round LOL... 
Still lets talk about some of my look shall we?! The Hair is a main part of this photo, and when I saw this at Memento Mori I HAD to have it. Now I will say, it's a little strange to see me wearing black hair, but the red colours in the NANI Kiran Hair choices were not really my tone and I'm very happy that I chose the monochrome pack instead... It looks so sad and dark and twisted!! I LOVE IT! I will admit that I added a couple of accessories to my hair, in the form of the runic Elemental Halo and the spiked Deucalion Halo, but I had a story in my mind of a witch being dragged into the darkness for using a bad spell! 
Her already scared face enhanced by this Blaspheme scar - created by a SongBird - as she was being dragged away. The remorse showing in her Teary Green Lua Eyes - thanks to these amazing eyes from Izzie's and the gift of a generous friend! 
I love this picture so much, it's haunting, melancholy and beautiful - at least I think so - and for me it's just perfect for Memento Mori... 

What is she wearing;
Spiked Headdress: random.Matter - Deucalion Halo in Silver 
Rune Headdress: [TfAtN] - Elemental Halo in Air/Silver RARE (No Longer Available!)
Hair & Accessory: [NANI] - Kiran Hair in Greyscale (Available until May 27th at Memento Mori
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Eyes: Izzie's - Lua Eyes in Teary Green RARE 
Tears: Izzie's - Little Tears 
Eye Scar: SongBird - Blaspheme (Available until May 27th at Memento Mori
Mouth Blood: Ghost'Ink - Be Bloody 
Choker: Kibitz - Casey Choker in Obsidian 
Pose: Signature Pose - Is That How You Feel?, Pose Set 26

Meeting Mr. Andel

I've been a very good girl for a while now, and I think it's time I let my hair down - which I am doing literally - and introduce you to a new friend of mine... Everyone, meet Otis Andel... He's a special man that came into my SL fairly recently, but before you get the wrong idea there is more to this than meets the eye! All will be revealed in a moment, but until then, please enjoy looking at him as he enjoys his very up close and personal introduction to me LOL... 
Now for an explanation before people start getting confused and contact HellBone about me having a new lover LOL... As I said before this is Otis, and he's the silent, do-as-he's-told type, and there is a damn good reason for this! Otis is in fact the modelling, man doll of my MC sister and dear friend Lilian, who has graciously said that if I ever needed a male model I could use and abuse him. He's a WIP - someone we can play around with and make fit what we need - and he's actually been fairly needed because I always have trouble blogging some of the amazing couple poses I'm sent. Hell doesn't mind posing, so long as it's not sexual, and WELL, this is more than a little sexual right?! 
The pose that I decided had to be the first to introduce him in is one from Come Soon, called "Gotcha" that is available at the soon to end round of Lost & Found - you have until tomorrow to get it from the event I believe. 
Anyway, what do you think? What do you think of her man dolly? I'm sure that this won't be the last time you ever see Mr Andel, though maybe next time he will be someone totally different!!! 

What are they wearing;
Hair: Argrace - TSUMUGI in Reds 
Lipstick: Izzie's - Smeared Lipstick 
Collar: [Haste] - Come Closer Collar in Chrome 
Top: [I<3F] - Top 04 
Head: LOGO - Eternity Ethan 
Tattoo: Letis Tattoo - BioMech 
Prop & Pose: COME SOON - Gotchaa (Available until May 1st at Lost & Found

For Fox Sake!

I slept really badly, and as a result I'm feeling rubbish this morning. No amount of coffee seems to be able to wake me up and I just feel like hiding all day - maybe that is what I will do LOL... Nightmares leave me feeling shaken up all day and not a very happy person, and right now I'm in run and hide mode... Either that or revert back to my childlike ways hehe... 
I reach out to my blog in an attempt to talk things through and feel better, but for some reason even this isn't working, so maybe a distraction technique... How about a Look-of-the-Day?!
This is one of those somewhat kid-like but grown up versions of kid-like outfits, that started with a simple but awesome top. 
I found the Prue Crop Top a this month's round of anyBody from one of my favourite stores, JACKALOPE! They had a variety of colours, with and without patterns, but seriously how could anyone resist "Oh for fox sake!" I then added just a little more foxiness in the form of this adorable Peaches plushie from The Stars That Laugh Gacha Collection - available until April 30th at Gacha Guardians just so you know - and dressed accordingly adorably!! 
That was all it took, well that and a magical location like one of the sets at WHOLE WHEAT and voilà, look-of-the-day and a somewhat more relaxed Rudh! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: TRUTH - Kyoko in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Gum: [Since1975] - Bubble Gum in GlitterPink 
Top: JACKALOPE - Prue Crop in White Foxsake (Available until April 31st at anyBody
Shorts: MUKA - Iggy 
Toy: Peaches - The Stars That Laugh Gacha Item in GOTG Hanging Fox (Available until April 30th at Gacha Guardians
Shoes: REIGN - Thigh High Sneakers in Black 
Pose: Signature Pose - Oh Hai, Pose Set 26

BishBox Made Me Do It!

I'm sure by now that you will have heard of the new craze for 'Loot Boxes' in SL... It's swept through the SL fashion world with almost as much gusto as the Gacha craze, but unlike Gacha I'm not so keen on this concept. With Gacha, yes it's a game of chance but at least you know what you are paying for - even if you may not want the particular item that you get, you could at least give it to someone as a gift - but the 'Loot Box' items are unknowns that you pay for in advance. Now don't get me wrong, I do like surprises, and can understand that 10 different exclusives from a great collection of designers is worth the money - at least some may say so - but personally I prefer to know what I'm spending my few pennies on. I always try on demos, and am careful with what I do and do not buy... 
HOWEVER, this month, my sister Solde - who LOVES the loot boxes and subscribes to a fair few of them - decided to treat me to a BishBox, and this month at least I was excited with everything in it!!!
The theme of this month's BishBox was grunge and I LOVE to dress in that way, it seems to be my common look lol. I had totally forgotten about it until it appeared in my inventory at which point I got overly excited!
The look - I guess it's another look-of-the-day - is one created from the BishBox items... 
Posed using a pose within the Come Soon "Grunge Queen" set - not not using their prop this time just the pose - the only thing that she's wearing which is NOT BishBox is her skirt, which comes from Blueberry! The top is a set from Caboodle, and the boots are from Pure Poison, with jewellery from Kibitz and Yummy and a wig from Doe, all of which are available in this month's BishBox. For more information, please check the BishBox Website or visit one of the participating stores mentioned... Maybe it's time to release your inner Bish too?! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Doe - Anna (Available in April's Bishbox) 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Necklaces: (Yummy) - Teen Spirit in Grunge Set (Available in April's Bishbox) 
Top: Caboodle - Mirja Crop Top (Available in April's Bishbox) 
Bracelets: Kibitz - Grunge Accessories in Jelly Bangles (Available in April's Bishbox) 
Skirt: Blueberry - Rachel in Black 
Shoes: Pure Poison - Gillian Sneakers (Available in April's Bishbox) 
Pose & Paint Can: Come Soon - Grunge Queen 02 (Available in April's Bishbox)

Time to Smoke

As a little insight into the RL person behind the avatar, I will admit that I smoke. I also live just outside of Amsterdam and so have a ready source of a different kind of thing to smoke - although I'm not actually keen on smoking it and prefer having it baked into something if I choose to partake in the weed high. 
There is a bit is a bit of a drugs culture in SL, people seem free to express things and therefore - like with many other RL taboos - the drug culture is not something that is seen as prohibited. Living in Holland, I know that laws in regards to drugs are somewhat more relaxed than other places in the world - I can see the difference even when I think of England - but I still find myself a little amazed that I can walk into a bar in SL and be like "Oh I've been in a bar like this in RL" even if it's decorated with Drug related paraphernalia... Bars like this one...
This is the bar at the very photogenic location that is Woodbury Falls, but the real reason that I wanted to chat with you today was not about the location... LOL there I go again, getting distracted in something random, it was in fact about my outfit! YES - another Look-of-the-Day... 
The dress is one with a story behind it. I saw this shine dress on Flickr and liked it lots, I went to Trés Chic - where the dress is currently available until May 5th - and wanted to try it on, BUT there was no demo available. Sad faced I contacted the designer who was so gracious and friendly in helping, I really commend her customer assistance, and she was really helpful. I got to try on the dress!!! At first I was a bit worried, it wasn't really as I'd imagined it might look on me, but after dressing it up with some adorable accessories - like the Denim Jacket from 'M.Birdie, and the Hat with this Asuka Truth Wig - it seemed perfect! Add to that, this awesome location and voilà... LOOK OF THE DAY!!!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Asuka in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Cigarette: [NikotiN] - Classic Cigarette 
Choker: Kibitz - Deluxe Collar in Silver 
Necklace: Maxi Gossamer - Jewelled Hand Of Fatima 
Jacket: `M.BIRDIE - Leah look-Jacket on Shoulder in 5 
Dress: shine - MAYA Casual Maxi Dress in Black (Available until May 5th at Trés Chic
Pose: Image Essentials - Kai Set, Demen 1 (Available until April 30th at TWE12VE

What's That?

I know that some people are able to make big changes to their Avatars or Surroundings fairly easily, but I am not one of those people. It's taken me a while to even contemplate the idea of changing my home in SL, and although I LOVE being able to decorate a new place, the thought of it is kinda daunting too... Still it's a thought in my mind and it's beginning to bubble away so we shall see LOL... 
I wish it was something easy to do, something easy like the little visitor that has decided to start Mountain Raising in my garden! 
Strange angle for a photo I thought but then again I wanted to be able to capture the feeling that Rudh is really peering down at the Molehill like "What's this?" 
The Molehill's are in a gacha from HopScotch at The Seasons Story - which runs until April 30th so don't miss out - and in fact while we are on the topic of this event, I'm going to take a second to point out my adorable outfit from {vincue} and Kibitz, such a cute collaboration. It includes almost everything you see here, with the exception of the Glasses that come from DAZED but I warn you now it is a Gacha and the overalls are rare, therefore harder to win! 
Maybe I'm a bit weird with this picture, but I really like how it turned out and kinda sorta became my Look-of-the-Day! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Tableau Vivant - Fae Hair in Reds (Available until May 6th at Collabor88
