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'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!

Hair: Tableau Vivant - Fae Hair in Reds (Available until May 6th at Collabor88

Daisies Amongst Flowers

I'm so all over the place with my blogging, it's a wonder that people keep up with how my brain works sometimes?! From yesterday's craziness I wanted to do something totally different and that's why today I'm going to do something pretty and girlie, rather than crazy and monstrous! 
Today I also want to get a little excited about a new blogging gig that I recently got myself. I have been given the chance to blog tattoos! It's not something that I have ever really focused on before, so not only is it going to be fun, it may be a bit of a challenge along the way. I figure, I like being naked sometimes, so why not combine that with picture taking more?! Today, is the first time I'm going to share my first tattoo photo for the store Vestigium... 
You might have guessed by now that I love flowers, and as soon as I saw this tattoo from Vestigium, I KNEW that it would be my first shown for the store. I LOVE the femininity of this design and am happy to tell you that although I'm wearing the Daises&Daisies version, there is also a Daisies version available on just one side at a time. Great for those of you who love tattoos but don't want to be inked quite so much! All of the tattoos from Vestigium come with Slink, Belleza and Maitreya appliers, and this - like many of the tattoo designs - comes in three different intensities from very dark and fresh to very faded! 
OK so I KNOW that the pose I used doesn't match the daisies of the tattoo but I couldn't resist this pose from Luanes World, and I think that because they aren't daisies they actually make the tattoo's flowers more stand out?! 
What do you think of my first foray into Tattoo blogging? I'm pretty pleased with it, normally my tattoos are just something I wear not something that I consider as a focal point of the picture, so I'm a bit nervous but I feel good with this one! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Cheri in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Tattoo: Vestigium - Daisies&Daisies 
Pose & Prop: Luanes World - The Heart is a garden

Beauty Nightmares

It's been a while since I've done anything somewhat strange - I KNOW that most of my pictures tend to have a hint of the crazies, but I mean more than usual - and I wanted to spend some time playing dress up and making a fantastical creature since it's something that always makes me smile and feel better about myself. 
Today I was able to get my hands on something that shouldn't really have been so kookie and abnormal, but somehow ended up doing exactly that. What started with a sexy looking bodysuit rapidly became a crazy character in my mind, and well... as per usual, the rest is Rudhish History! 
So let's start at the beginning, this whole outfit started out because I was able to get my hands on this soon to be released - at the upcoming Dark Style Fair, which by the way I will no doubt be talking about at a later stage when the event opens on May 1st - bodysuit called Android 18 from Nightmare! These bodysuits will be available in three different options - TriBlack, seen here, TriWhite and Plain - but you have to wait just a little longer as they will not be available until May 1st. Also available from Nightmare at the event will be a set of Android 18 tattoos - not shown, but still cool to see - which includes a chest piece that sits over the heart and has various images for it's centre. I'll attach copies of the original ads below to give you a better idea of what you get - as I'm so awesomely helpful sometimes!
Yet one thing lead to another with this look... First the Android body suit, and the positioning of the chest piece because something robotic - or perhaps Frankenstein's Bride ish?! This then lead on to the though of her having had her heart removed since having the chest piece say "Error" was an option, so I needed a wound and well... One Surgery became a need for more beauty touch ups! I cannot explain the need for just one eye though... I guess that was down to the whole monsterish nature, and the fact that the perfect place for all of these operations just happened to be Dr.Frankenstein's lab - a WHOLE WHEAT?! 
Weird I KNOW lol, but just let my mind roll with it, and I hope that it brings a smile to your face in one way or another... If this doesn't work, then wait until May 1st, because I'm sure that the back of this very sexy bodysuit will DEFINITELY be a cause for a smile!!

Through the Rose Garden

After her harrowing experiences at the hands of a dark and mysterious captor, Rudh was eventually freed, but sometimes as is the case with many a dark twisted romance, the victim and captor have fallen in love... Such was the case with Harley Quinn and the Joker, but without the toxic waste or the insanity - and yes I have just recently seen the movie Suicide Squad which is why I bring that up now! 
Finally freed, the man that lurks in shadows left her a gift of a new dress, something that she slips on and that fits her like a glove, along with the most delicate looking white rose as a symbol of new beginnings but also one of remembrance. Though her biggest surprise, her sudden freedom aside, was that when she went to walk away, she turned a corner and it was beautiful... 
The Outer Garden of the Rose Imperialistic is filled with soft sweet rose blooms, and although maybe not for her alone, this gesture from her mysterious captor makes poor little Rudh's heart sing a little. 
Her dress is a somewhat new release from Addams, something that she's had her eye on for a while, a form fitting Donatella dress in a soft shade of gray, and it's as if he knew that was what she wanted... 
Maybe now he will reveal his true form and let her know him, but as our heroic victim walks through the roses all she can do is close her eyes, to dream and let the horrors of yesterday disappear... 

What is she wearing;
Hair: TRUTH - Zora in Reds (Past Group Gift)  
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Dress: Addams - Donatella Dress in N*41 
Rose: ASO! - Rose Gacha Item in Bud Ice (Available until April 29th at Pose Fair 2017

Hello, Is someone there?! Please help me!

Some days you feel like you're being watched, and that is a feeling that doesn't feel all that good. Someone's looking over your shoulder, watching your every move and waiting for you to slip up - falling on your face. Maybe it's a sign of the usually well-hidden lack of self-esteem that I have, a sign that the cracks are there no matter what kind of veneer I put over the top of them, and that I worry so much about pleasing others that I'm afraid to fail anyone - no matter how much they hurt me in return. OR maybe it's all a sign of me over thinking too much, I do that too, and it leaves me feeling lost and alone without reason. The mind can be a pretty treacherous thing sometimes... Fear is the most difficult of all emotions to deal with, as it resonates into all walks of life. 
Yet sometimes, things like fear can summon up other emotions... Things like fear can draw things out of us that we didn't believe possible - strength, passion and even in some very rare cases desire... 
Today I have a sense of desire to protect myself, born of a perhaps unreal fear, but a feeling that's lurking in my brain... Images spring to life, but the image that I've created today of Rudh, really screams and shares that feeling of being watched whilst feeling alone all at once...
Would you believe that all these emotions came bubbling to the surface to become art because of one of the smallest pieces in this picture? I must have been harbouring these feelings in my mind, but there is ONE tiny object that brought this to life...
That object is the very pretty, very dainty looking, "Softly Bound" ribbon cuff from Ama - which is available until the 23rd at Tie Me Up by the way. This item could have taken me in all kinds of directions, from something pretty to something overly kinky, but instead it lead me somewhere dark and twisted. I guess it doesn't help that HellBone gave me this awesome Witch's Recluse Chair - from Jian - that looked SO perfect in his DRD Makeshift Refuge! 
Now I will admit that although Rudh is being watched in this picture, and things do look a little sinister, I would have had a hard time taking this picture with the shadow of anyone else. There are very few people in SL that have seen my truly vulnerable side, and the man watching me is one of those. Having people like him around make the bad feelings fade into good ones, and I guess - much like taking this photo and writing a blog post - talking here really helps too... Right now that feeling I had when I started has gone, I just hope that it stays well buried and deep within the shadows from now on! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: ARGRACE - KOHAKU in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Bruises: antielle - Appetizer Bites & Hickies (No Longer Available)
Ribbon Cuff: Ama - Softly Bound in Infinity (Available until April 23rd at Tie Me Up)
Chair: JIAN - Witch's Recluse Gacha Item in Chair 
Set: DRD - Makeshift Refuge

"Got any Aces & 8's HellBone?"

Today is HellBone and My RL three year wedding anniversary! I've been married to this very attractive set of pixels RL driver for three long years and boy the things that we've faced together in both worlds! Not gonna go into all those things now, it's just one thing after another but instead of having the time to do something cute and romantic for our anniversary picture, Hell has been fairly busy... Watching a set of "backstabbers" that seem to not know the meaning behind the idea of Back Stabbing! 
So I joined him during his surveillance, and well I got bored of watching liars, so maybe I distracted him playing a little game?!
Nothing kinky, he's not into that kinda fun in SL lol... Dirty bastards for thinking that way - though I don't blame you because that's where my mind would have gone too! We had a quiet game of cards in the car, as he sat watching the birth of yet another "100L MC" by yet another Wannabe MC President with know idea about what they are doing. 
The pose is actually one from Come Soon called "Full House", that's available at the current Pose Fair. So many different poses all in one location, it's hard to choose which to use, but this one by Come Soon is definitely one of my favourites at the event. 
It's a great spot for a little surveillance! I wonder if HellBone has a hand full of Aces & 8s?! I wonder if he's about to stab me in the back LOL... Oh wait no he's not gonna hit me, he's just gonna bring the smackdown - he's got deadman's hands!! LOL!
