Fetching in the Sunflowers

It's such a hot and humid day here today... The earliest days of Summer have got me quaking in my boots. I'm not able to function most of the time it gets too hot, and for the next few months I think I'm stuck this way... Bear with me LOL... 
In the head I'm going to hide out where it's cool and I can be lazy - it's Sunday, and that's what Sunday's are for after all... Today I was doing a little gardening in the shade, and whilst I was picking some sunflowers, I made a new friend for myself! 
I LOVE SUNFLOWERS... Love, Love, Love them! There's always something that seems so happy about sunflowers, and although I'm a macabre little Living Dead Doll, I have to say that yellow is my favourite colour! 
Let me introduce you to my new friend though, isn't he adorable?! He was - and may still be - the group gift for MishMish. It was because of him that things got a little yellow for me, and maybe you might be able to feel the summer heat pouring out of this picture too... A pretty yellow Lolita Top from Pseudo and some gorgeous Winnie Earrings from [Fetch]... It was all yellow!! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Char (Past Group Gift) 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2

The Pink Flamingo Diner

It's officially Second Life's 16th Birthday... Happy Sweet 16 Second Life. Many people have different views about this SL universe, those that don't play think it's strange but those that are involved will often say they either love or hate it. We complain when it doesn't work, any time there's a problem the community comes together to rant on social media outlets like facebook. Yet with a platform like Second Life I'm still amazed at the creativity, the friendships and loves that come from a virtual - and some might say Non-real" - environment. Without this 16 year old "game" I wouldn't have met some of my favourite people - I owe my bestie, my hubby and even family to this online universe... Thank you Linden Labs for bringing us all together!
Now the theme of this year's birthday celebrations is dropping us very much into the 50's with lots of retro style and a good dash of rockabilly, so in true Rudh fashion I'm going to celebrate this my own way... 
Yes I know it's not truly 1950's in style, and it's also not totally Rockabilly, but it's the way Rudh would interpret it, and well, that's good enough for me! 
I found this amazing place with a 1950s & 1960s zone called Time Portal - that appears to cover everything from the Romans onwards - it looks like a really interesting place to explore as a travel through time, so I guarantee I'll be going back to investigate more! She even met Mr.Silent type there hehe!
The outfit though was the reason I went exploring, so I guess you could call it a look of the day?! I bought this crazy, but adorable, Susanne Skirt from ERSCH - that's available at Harajuku - and went to town accessorising... First with a Magika wig that comes with the bow and then a pair of Zombie Suicide Gemmed Retro Glasses, which were released for Vintage Fair but should now be at the mainstore! Since you cannot really see them too closely in the main picture, I've been good and added close-ups, but they are cute with the little gems! 

What is she wearing;
Bow & Hair: Magika - December 2018 (Past Group Gift) 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Glasses: Zombie Suicide - Gemmed Retro Glasses 
Choker: CULT - Diamond & Bow Leather Collar 
Top: Pseudo - Tiiu Top in White 
Skirt: ERSCH - Susanne Skirt in Red (Available until July 10th at Harajuku Event
Pose: Image Essentials - Get Down, Pose 2

Hoops and Snakes

It's FRIDAY!!! That means that once again it's party time, and the fun of the weekend is here... I work over the weekends as with every weekend, but at least the time and atmosphere feels different. It always feels a little more like a party time, especially on Friday! So I'm letting my party animal out, and for some reason she's hanging upside on a hoop with a snake?! There's something a little bit Slave for You ish to this, isn't there?! 
Going back to those 00's days when Britney was a "queen of pop", even though you shouldn't get me started on Britney LOL... I could rant about it for days!
Still, because it's Friday, and because I'm trying to stay awake enough to be in a party mood, I decided to get a little party girl, show girl going on... 
Hanging in an -Extra- Hoop, which is actually a pose set released by the store, she's artfully draped a large Boa Neck Hugger - a pretty animesh snake from Jian - around her shoulders. Took her a while to learn to look graceful upside down like this though, she'd either fall off or the snake wouldn't play along, but still once she got the hang of it, it worked like a charm and wowed the crowd that had gathered to see her... 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Argrace - Akane in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Snake: Jian - Boa Neck Hugger in Albino (Available until June 22nd at Uber
Dress: Addams - Divine Dress in N*9 
Shoes: -KC- Couture - Katrina Heels 
Pose: -Extra- - Hoop Pose Set, Pose 3 
Backdrop: FOXCITY. - #MOOD Gacha Item in 5 - Staged (Available for use at Backdrop City)

To The Beach

So today my RL parents left me after their albeit brief but busy visit, and I'm at that point of feeling a little lost and drained. What do I do in times like this? I turn to SL and look for a fun, and random, distraction and well, what better distraction than going to a beach to cool down on a warm Summers day. 
I hate being hot in the summer, as a RL big girl it's not a nice feeling, BUT in SL stripping off and heading to The Beach is something that I'm more than happy to do... 
Especially if I have a cute friend too, that I can ride the tide with!!
The bikini I chose to wear today is one from the Rally to Rescue, it's available from Sass - the event will be closing in the next two days, so you have a little bit more time to get in and shop and raise some money for Pitbulls and other animal rescues. 
The awesome rubber ring is actually a pose by BellePoses for the Women Only Hunt, there are 5 poses in the series and if you want them all you have to do is hunt for the adorable little kittens! 
Now if only I didn't have to work tomorrow? I don't want to go back to reality!

What is she wearing;
Hat & Hair: [RunAway] - Cherry Hair in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Bikini: sass - Maisy Bikini (Available until June 20th at Rally To Rescue
Pose, Sunglasses & Ring: BellePoses - Moana, Pose 1 (Available until June 22nd at Women Only Hunt

Supporting Second Pride

This month, June for those of you that are totally clueless, is also now days going by a different name... Pride Month! A time when rainbows dominate and people start drowning themselves in a myriad of colours. This is all in support of the LGBT community, and although not a part of it myself, I do have many friends and family that are, so I am 100% in support of Pride! It's a great message, even if you're not in the LGBT community, that would benefit the world if more people chose to live by it... Loving, Supporting and Accepting everyone for who we are, not what society tells us we are supposed to be! 
Last night I was invited over to check out Second Pride, Second Life's Celebration of the Pride month, and it was so pretty and a lot of fun so this morning before I get caught up in my crazy busy day, I decided to sneak back over and take a quick snapshot... The energy coming out of Second Pride is awesome, it's full of love and it got me caught up like a leaf on the breeze, it was happy addictive!
Of course there had to be rainbows... Luckily AsteroidBox and Fika had some adorable little streaks of colour to give away as group gifts this month. AsteroidBox is flying the flags, Pride Flags, in all the colours you could want to support which ever faction of the LGBT community you choose! Fika has released a collection of things but I LOVE this little teapot purse. I've used one before in a previous post, but I was SO EXCITED to see that it has been released with rainbows for Pride Month! 
Now just to warn you, there may be group joining fees in place, but these are low fees, and the group gifts are worth it, so I fully recommend joining both groups! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Tableau Vivant - Hairplay in Front Blow Redheads 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Flag: AsteroidBox - Pride Flag (Current Group Gift) 
Dress: SEUL - Lita Sparkle Mini in Onyx (Available until June 24th at Level
Bag: Fika - Eclipse Teapot in PRIDE (Current Group Gift)

Saturday Morning Eclipse Cartoons

Saturday Morning when I was younger meant only ONE THING... Cartoons!! As a kid - like many other kids out there - I'd be getting up, grabbing some cereal and laying on the floor watching the same cartoons I'd seen replayed a thousand times on Nickelodeon. 
Now that I'm older, it doesn't seem to be so much of thing that I'm able to do anymore, BUT there's always wishful thinking... Maybe next Saturday?! 
Of course when Rudh watches Saturday Morning Cartoons, it's done with her usual dead girl flair... mostly because the cartoon that is about to start is ECLIPSE based. It was bound to be a little dark and macabre... although maybe not to the same extent as her Teddy Bear?
She's been good and pulled on some decent looking clothes that could be seen as floppy around the house clothes - although technically it's actually a Tank Top from Pretty Sexy Things at Rally to Rescue and a pair of Storybook pants - yet there's more than a couple of things from the new round of Eclipse too! 
Her new earrings are a release by Spookshow called Diabolos. A set of earrings that may need modifying to fit your ears, but are very easy to make fit no matter the style of ears you wear. You may also notice those reddish looking scars on her cheeks - that's blood by the way - and it's a new makeup release, along with the adorable little Skull Ribbons, from The White Crow. Both of these things can be grabbed at the new round of the ECLIPSE... The Eclipse, so I'm told, will be changing soon too! A new Eclipse will appear once in the two months, and there are more changes to come too... Sounds exciting doesn't it, let's wait and see what the future brings, but for now enjoy the new Eclipse!
What is she wearing;
Hair: TRUTH - Astra (Past Group Gift) 
Hair Ribbon: -[TWC]- - Skull Ribbons in Black (Available until June 30th at ECLIPSE
