Dancing in the woods for Horror Haute May

Horror Haute May has arrived and a smaller but still freaking awesome line-up faces the macabre style shoppers this month...
Also if you hadn't heard - though being a lover of the gothic and sometimes macabre you may well have - the annual World Goth Fair is currently making the SL world just that little bit darker!
So I have a few Horrific things from Horror Haute and one charitable thing from WGF, but one cute outfit to come out of it!! 
From World Goth Fair, I found this gorgeous outfit by ImmateriA. It's a very strange colour for me, I normally avoid green like the plague but it seemed far too pretty to avoid in this forestry setting... I kept most of the accessorising simple, with the exception of my headgear lol... 
On my head I wore the adorable horns - that have been released for this month's Horror Haute - from the Gala Fashion Design store... I love the subtle details to them, as well as the pretty textures. I also went a little bit strange in the eye department, allowing my inner demon to pop out... One eye is my normal, from IKON, but the other - the jet black demonic eye - is from VerseEye and I have to say these demon eyes are gorgeous! I hid my human eye a little behind too cute to miss monocle from Cubic Cherry Kre-Ations too... Last but by no means least I pulled these must have shoes with their gorgeous little bows from Czarny Kanarek onto my dainty toes - they have to be worn with the SLINK Medium feet by the way - and VOILA! Horror Haute May!!! 

What is she wearing;
Horns: Gala Fashion Design - Bone + Blood Horns (HORROR HAUTE MAY) 
Hair: Exile - Rain 
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item) 
Monocle: Cubic Cherry Kre-ations - Lullaby Tenebra Monocle (HORROR HAUTE MAY) 
Black Eye: VerseEye - Midnight (HORROR HAUTE MAY) 
Face Wounds: (Under the Eyes) Utopiah - Excessive Pain Makeup, (Right Eye) Corvus - Scarred Face Tattoo,  AND, (Left Cheek) Corvus - Cheek Scars

Tails, Candles and 20 Questions on Monday... A Meme!

I was out sorting through my LM folder, rubbishing those that no longer worked and rediscovering places I had forgotten this weekend and I stumbled upon an old favourite club of mine - Demonic. It hasn't changed much since the days I used to spend time there, which is awesome considering how often things change in SL. Then I saw Berry's Monday Meme this week, and she talks about meeting someone new and starting a conversation with them, and the way the conversation can in some cases seem to be a game of 20 questions hehe...
Berry, however had a little help from an anonymous question provider, so I guess this week is just like meeting someone new and strange in a club hehe...
By the way, the reason I am using this picture really does fit with this post hehe... When I went into Demonic at the weekend, I noticed an amazing looking woman wearing what could be one of my new favourite purchases... Can you tell what that might be? LOL...
I have lots of new things here so it could be a number of different things... The basic outfit - or the pants and the gloves anyway - come from SAKIDE and are available as part of the Excess outfit in black at the World Goth Fair. The hair is also new, a special release from Ploom for the latest line-up of My Attic, but the Kiera style with these new gorgeous Dark Forest Horns from DRD at the Suicide Dollz event allowed me to release the inner Rudh Demon hehe...
I have two different sets of visible piercings here too... The Neck Bolts, I am still wearing from the post just previous to this one, and I added another new Cute Poison - for The Dark Style Fair - set in the form of the Spinal Upper Piercing, running down my back.
I sat and posed with this gorgeous lamp from MishMish, that comes in a large range of different metallic colours, and can be lit like it is here or doused...
Though if you haven't already guessed it, the thing that I saw and had to have was the overly cute heart-shaped, Dark Rose Monster Tail from DirtyStories... Luckily I saw it on the marketplace when I went looking because going into this store is likely to be pocket money suicide for me LOL... I couldn't get enough of wearing it, and even though it earnt me a few funny looks I just had to wear the tail with the bikers hehe...
Now on with Berry's stranger's 20 questions hehe...
When and how did you discover Second Life? – I found SL on August 27, 2006... Well at least that was when I created my Rudh Dolly... I was dragged in by friends I knew from another online game called Furcadia LOL... I was a Green Squirrel before I was me LOL...
Did you know about virtual worlds before or was this your first experience with them? – I was never a gamer, I played Furcadia which is similar to SL in regards to the social aspects... I wasn't there for very long though and I moved on as soon as I found SL... I didn't know much about most aspects of other virtual worlds however...
Has Second Life met your expectations? – I dont think that I had any expectations when I first joined SL... I mean I wanted to be able to hang around with the friends I had that had moved over from Furcadia with me, and I was hoping to make new friends, so I guess it has allowed that to happen hehe...
If you could teleport back to the first ten minutes of your avatar’s slife, what would you tell yourself? – Spend more time at Help Island. I wanted to just get into it and didn't read all of the displays set up by LL - at the time - I could have found SL so much easier if I had paid more attention lol...
How long did it take you to master avatar flying and driving vehicles inworld? – Being part of a Biker club in SL you'd think that I could drive right... My Hubby makes vehicles, you'd think that I could do it right??! WRONG! LOL I am still really crap at driving in SL! I have to ride on someone else's backseat EVERYTIME!
Do you have a mystery alt? – I don't, I don't have an alt at all... Am I one of the only people in SL that doesn't have one? Maybe I should make one?!
Is your SL avatar a reflection of you, or someone you wished you could be? – When you talk to Rudh, it's all me... The personality she has is mine, and I've always felt that if you try to fake it one day you will get burnt! I don't wish I looked like her either to be honest. OK she has red hair and green eyes but that is where the similarities between us stops, Rudh is my Barbie Doll... I play dress up with her style wise... In RL I'm a jeans and hoodies kinda girl, Rudh is rarely seen in something so simple lol...
Is there an individual you met in SL that inspired you in your RL? How? – A lot of people have taught me a lot of things... Those that have hurt me have made me stronger and more able to stand on my own two feet, those that have been there as friends have also made me stronger and taught me to have more confidence in me...
Do you feel it is easier to create stronger bonds/relationships with people you meet inworld as opposed to the real world? – This is a hard one, sometimes when talking to people interpretations of what is being said without the ability to see facial expression can cause problems. Though with meeting someone new you always already have a common interest in that you are both already within the SL world. I spend a LOT of my time in IMs with people and always have IMs with certain people open, we've built very strong bonds without even having met face to face so it's hard to say...
Did you ever imagine or believe people could fall in love with someone they never met before Second Life? – Course, people have been falling in love not just online but though non-face to face contact for hundreds of years - historic kings chose their new wives just by looking at a portrait of them for example. My RL aunt met her current partner 15 years ago online through a dating website... When people in my family heard about how HellBone and I met they were shocked that we met online until I reminded them of that fact too...
How has your perspective of dating changed (or not) since you started playing second life? – Well my SL was the reason I got married just over a month ago lol I guess you could say it changed my dating life for the better!
How has your perspective of employment changed (or not) since you started playing second life? – I am in agreement with Berry about her response to this question... It amazes me that people can and do make a RL living from SL by creating things that people want to own in the virtual world.
Name three things in both your lives that overlap each other significantly. – My Relationship with my Partner, Friendships and I guess sometimes though maybe a bad thing, my sensitivity!
If you could live your life more immersively in a virtual world, would you? (Kind of like the Matrix) – No, I love my SL but I'd miss my RL too much. SL is just a place I go to relax not somewhere I would want to be always.
How do you think behavior changes for people if they’re inworld vs in real world? Why do you think that is? – Again I agree with Berry on this one, people do seem to act in a more passive aggressive way in come cases... They hide behind a set of pixels and think that it is OK to do what they do because it's not 'real'... I have noticed that it is the same people however to be the ones to claim that there are people behind the avatars and that feelings should be remembered!!
How has second life consumerism changed your perception of spending habits, the value of money, the need to be “bleeding edge” with fashion? – In RL I a a big girl, of the fatty variety... I don't mind admitting it I know I am lol... But I tend to find clothes can be fairly expensive... SL really helped me curb my need to shop. I can buy clothes for very little and make my dolly look pretty whilst curbing my need to splurge money on clothes in RL!
Name three skills you attribute to having learned or honed in second life alone. – Overcoming shyness, Photoshop and business management.
If your grand kids googled your Second Life Avatar’s name, would they be intrigued, disgusted, proud or something else? – Wow that is an interesting question... They'd probably laugh at some of the random pictures of Rudh... I mean she tends to wear crazy stuff sometimes!

Time for a Snooze in Full Eye Make-Up

I always have and always will be a little shy about my rambling space. Not so much in the fact that I feel shy about what I write here, but maybe more along the lines of sharing my posts... When people ever tell me that they read what I write I actually find myself blushing. I also have a really bad habit of being too shy to even send the designers of the things I am blogging messages to say "Hey look I blogged your stuff, thank you!" I just worry that people will think I am asking for things, and I would hate for anyone to think that of me... BUT recently I have been trying to do that a little more...
I did this with the awesome Miss Misanthropiae Draconia of CottonCandyMonster, sent her a little message and in return she sent me some more stuff back... THANK YOU SO MUCH MISANTHROPIAE...
One of the things that she sent me was her newest release of eyeshadows... The Dissonance Fantasy Eyeshadows are a collection that really appealed to my inner rainbow lover, with each eye being a different colour... I was drawn to them!
I have so much new stuff to show though I felt this would be an awesome time to share some of the fun stuff that is buried within my hoard hehe... The hair I am wearing I bought specially to go with the cuteness of the eye-shadow, I never normally buy from Truth, but this one I couldn't resist. I love his textures and designs, but randomly a few of the styles seem to make my face look a little strange... I demo a LOT, I only buy a few, and the Nova style was one of those! I have a new piercing too... One from my favourite - and go-to - place for piercings, Cute Poison... This one, however, is a little different in that it is bolts through the neck, akin to the Frankenstein style. These are currently only available to buy at the Dark Style Fair - I still haven't been there yet, but I will before it closes I hope LOL...
All that digging through the hoard left me feeling a little sleepy, thank heavens for my adorable new rug from Lark - that was released as a past FLF item... Oh and whilst I was at it I made sure I had a little mid snooze snack nearby so that I could revive myself... The Sumo Cookie Jar from MishMish that was filled with yummy looking cookies proved to be perfect for that...

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Nova in Reds
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item)
Face Wounds: (Under the Eyes) Utopiah - Excessive Pain Makeup, (Right Eye) Corvus - Scarred Face Tattoo,  AND, (Left Cheek) Corvus - Cheek Scars
Eyeshadow: CottonCandyMonster - Dissonance Fantasy Eye-shadow
Piercing: Cute Poison - Wounded Piercing
Neck Bolts: Cute Poison - Rusted Neckbolts in Skin Version (Available now at The Dark Style Fair)
Necklace: Maxi Gossamer - Madrah Necklace (Past Group Gift)
Dress: A gift from a friend!
Pose: PRETENSE - Contend Pose 4
Cookie Jar: MishMish - Sumo Cookie Jar
Rug: Lark - Felt Ball Rug in Multi (Past FLF Item)

Got My Eye On You!

I seem to be on a roll with finding clothes that I never knew existed but that I cannot live without hehe... The day I discovered my new store fetish that is CottonCandyMonster, I also discovered another dress from a store that I'd never heard of and fell in love... That day was a good day! 
The second of my epic dress finds was one from a store called M.Inc and well... I wonder if you can see why I fell in love with it hehe... 
It fitted perfectly into my random style... I LOVE the huge eye on the design, the stars are pretty but it was the eye that drew me to it, and it perfectly matches the colour of the eyes I choose to wear every day in SL! 
Then I had to just find some simple accessories, including this gorgeous bag from Tentacio - released for the Serafilms Labyrinth event - and these adorable Fluffeh Wings that Silent Sparrow released on a recent past FLF outing. 
I just love it when you find something new and can scream about it from the rooftops... I am so going digging through the M.Inc collection!!! Oh and YES - I've got my shadows back too *happy dances*...

What is she wearing;
Hair: Ploom - Isabel 
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item)

5 Minutes Peace... Time for a little Drinkie!

Sometimes you have to just kick back, breathe a sigh of relief and move forward... Sometimes you have to take that sigh with a very large Margarita... In RL I am sipping on a cold glass of raspberry beer - my new addiction since living in Holland - but Rudh has to have a little more elegance and so a fancy cocktail is all that will suffice as her way of avoiding the drama and relaxing...
She would have been ready to entertain guests, dressed in her pretties but hiding away near the chaotic waterfall meant she had time all to herself, if it was just for a few minutes before someone screamed for attention once again...
I love this outfit... I knew I would have to wear it here sometime, but I just couldn't find time to get anything photographed for it LOL... TILL NOW! There is nothing brand new to this outfit - the new stuff is stuff that has been waiting around in my wardrobe, biding it's time until I was ready to pull it out of the dark and throw it together in a look! I guess you could say this is another look of the day type post!?!
So outfit wise the look was something I'd been wearing on and off for a few days... I had the adorable Cage Dress from Haste since a long past Fantasy Gacha Fair, and because I love risque but didn't want to embarrass anyone I wore it with a Hucci Circolo Bodysuit that has been in my inventory for what feels like forever. As always though it was the accessorising that I went to town on... A Necromancer Crown from Remarkable Oblivion saw this outfit become a look fit for royalty, which kinda promted the use of the May's Soul Suala Shoulder Epaulettes too I guess... My piercing remained the same - a Crave Piercing from Cute Posion - and I used a pretty Death Row Designs Karma Headband to hold the fringe of my Maisy Truth hairstyle in place.
All in all not a bad look for someone who only managed to find 5 minutes peace LOL...

What is she wearing;
Crown: Remarkable Oblivion - Necromancer Crown
Hair: Truth - Maisy
Hair Band: Death Row Designs - Karma Headband in Disbelief
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item)
Face Wounds: (Forhead) REPULSE - Lobotomy, (Right Eye) Corvus - Scarred Face Tattoo,  AND, (Left Cheek) Corvus - Cheek Scars
Piercing: Cute Poison - Crave Piercing
Epaulettes: May's Soul - Suala Shoulders in White
Dress: Haste - Cage Dress in Navy
Bodysuit: Hucci - Circolo Bodysuit in White
Bracelets: Delusions - Bloodlust Bangles in Black (No Longer Available!)

CottonCandyMonster... My New Clothing Addiction!

I've discovered that sometimes when people stumble upon a store that is new to them, they do one of two things... They either keep it a secret so they can revel in the 'oohs' and 'ahhs' of people that get to admire their pretty new things, OR they tend to tell everyone and share as many details about the place as they can... LOL...
For me personally I love to share, and will get overly excited about something I find that I love... Today is one of those times!!! I have been wearing this item that I am about to show off for 5 days LOL... I LOVE IT THAT MUCH!!!
Can you tell what my favourite bit of this outfit might be? A little clue could be the fact that I had to scramble around and try to find the most colourful place in SL - getting lucky by finding the perfect spot at the Rachel Breaker Store...
The item that I am in love with is this GORGEOUS dress from a store that is brand new to me... The store is CottonCandyMonster - or CCM for short - and I found it by accident one day when trawling through the marketplace looking for a dress. This wasn't the dress I really needed at the time, but I couldn't get the design out of my head, so I HAD to go back and buy one! I also had to buy a few other things from the store too - but that's another story for later! I just fell head over heels in love with this dress... I NEEDED it... I loved the design, the bright colours and the crazy almost twilight zone style that it had to it - there were other similarly pretty designs but this one stood out to me in what I have to call a "Gimme Gimme Gimme" moment!
The rest of the outfit, although cute, was mostly just accessorising the adorable dress hehe... I wore my favourite leggings from PANIK and some bright and spikey heels from Crazy Kitty. My hair I pulled up in a messy updo with a pretty scarf accessory from SpellBound, then some simple but cute necklaces from Sweet Leonard and Pekka and a huge bow ring from Maxi Gossamer, and my perfect - been worn all week - outfit was ready!!!
To the designer of this AMAZING dress... Keep it coming... I want more like this, much much more LOL!!! Not that I am demanding or anything!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Spellbound - Sunday with Scarf
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item)
Face Wounds: (Forhead) REPULSE - Lobotomy, (Right Eye) Corvus - Scarred Face Tattoo,  AND, (Left Cheek) Corvus - Cheek Scars
Piercing: Cute Poison - Crave Piercing
Choker: Sweet Leonard - Curvy Choker
Necklace: Pekka - My Little Bow Necklace in Passion
Dress: CottonCandyMonster - Antifashion Long Shirt in Gullacass
Ring: Maxi Gossamer - Gigi Shimmer Bows in Large
Pants: PANIK - Destroy Leggins in Noir
Shoes: Crazy Kitty - Bite Me Heels (Worn with SLINK High Feet)
Pose: Ploom - Bones 2

Getting lost at the Funny Puppet Fair

More from the Funny Puppet Fair today, I had to keep playing around with the goodies that are available, there is just SO MUCH and I wanted to share as much as I possibly could hehe... This time though I thought I would actually venture into the fair itself and have a wander around... THE SETTING IS JUST AS ADORABLE AS ALL THE GOODIES AVAILABLE! Seriously if you need a Kawaii backdrop for a photo, GO HERE!!!
So this outfit is something that I wouldn't have actually expected to have come from somewhere with a Kawaii theme, but the dress just called to me, it appealed to my dark side... Though being that it was from the Funny Puppet Fair I did have to Rudhify a little and add a few cute elements as accessories hehe... The dress itself is from Modas Second and has been released for the event, but the accessories are what make the outfit fit the Kawaii feel hehe... 
I slipped on a pink wig before wrapping an adorable Lizbend Hair Band around my forehead... The Glitzz Lizbend hair band comes with a HUD for easy recolouring, and I have to say the pretty floral decoration on it wouldn't normally be my ideal accessory but it is SO pretty, I just couldn't resist, ya know just this once?! I slipped my feet into some very pretty heels from SillySpoiledWhore - Yes they are pink... No the world isn't ending LOL - not normally one for mouthies, I remembered the cute little gift from [geek.] which comes in the form of the puppet masters strings - must not start singing Metallica again - and then remembered this super cute snail bag friend from LavandaChic, and I was a happy Rudh!

The Kitty is the REAL Master of Puppets!

I think there is something in the water at the moment, at least maybe something in the air around a certain event that has been filling both my wardrobe and inventory with cuteness as of late, but the reason I say this is more due to the fact that it's gotten me doing something I never would have done recently lol...
People might think 'why is she telling us this?' but due to the Funny Puppet Fair I caught myself listening - and singing along - to Metallica! Maybe one of the reasons was due to this awesome pose set, complete with props...
There has been some brilliant pose sets created for this event... I have to say one of my favourites of them being the Image Essentials pose set, Puppet on a String, which can be found in the Gacha area of the event. Although the pose was great I needed to find an outfit too - or this could have been a very NON-PG post lol... Luckily I still had masses to share from the Funny Puppet Fair... 
The dress, for example, is SO CUTE! It has a few different kitty face designs and well, who can resist a cute kitty... Thank you Emporium LOL I needed a kitty dress! I stuck with the kitty theme, pulling on a pair of kitty ears with my ponytail and digging out an adorably cute plushie from Hanaya called Miumiu Wiggletail - available at Funny Puppet Fair - with a tail that does actually wiggle!!! Then just one more thing was needed, I didn't know what however until I pulled on these over-sized heart sunglasses from Dyer Maker... My master of puppets look was complete... 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Magika - Meow

Hanging from a moon catching Butterflies...

The Funny Puppet Fair brings so many adorable fun toys, outfits and posing props to play with that I simply couldn't resist digging through them and creating some crazy and cute looks...
The theme of the event is purely and simply adorable, and all of the designers that have joined in the line-up have really taken this to heart.
Granted there is a lot of things there that really didn't suit my style or fit my taste - but I will say that I think there is something for everyone. No matter what your style is, you will find lots of things here that are fun and can be made to fit any look!
This is one of those that I fell in love with when I opened the wrapper, and simply KNEW I would have to blog it in some way or another... Then I opened another box and BOOM there the way was!
Hanging on a moon, the crazy puppety harlequin me is catching butterflies... Seems so much more appealing than dealing with drama doesn't it? LOL... 
I loved the pose prop from Le Poppycock - this one is available in a Gacha at the Funny Puppet Fair. There are two specific areas set up for Gachas, so it shouldn't be hard to find these gorgeous pose props... The outfit is also a FPF release, this time from the store FireBird Designs. This is a new store to me, but I love the texturing of this one piece, old-school underwear! 
The other thing that needs to be mentioned are the gorgeous butterflies - once again Rudh is surrounded by butterflies... These are part of a set, with some awesome face paint make-up from Le Poppycock... Hmmm I haven't ever really paid much attention to this store... MAYBE I SHOULD?! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Argrace - Arkane in Reds 
Butterflies: Le Poppycock - Befuddled (Available now at Funny Puppet Fair

We aren't just Friends for Monday's Meme... We're Family...

I have two fun and possibly crazy things to share with you today... One of those is this week's Monday Meme from the blog of Miss Strawberry Singh. The other is a collection of goodies that are available at the current Funny Puppet Fair.
I applied to blog for this event what seems like many moons ago now... I had envisioned an event filled with adorable kawaii and lots and lots of plushies! So far, looking at all the fun things that have been sent to the bloggers, I wasn't disappointed! There may be a lot of Funny Puppets, coming to my ramblings very very soon!
BUT last night I took a picture filled with cute puppety goodness and it just so happened that I had a pair of my friends - and sisters - in the photo with me... So I thought "AH-HA two birds one stone!"
First let's talk about the puppetyness... The pose used is one of the exclusives for the fair from Fashiowl and it includes the TV and gaming controls... Never normally a gamer, I managed to beat first my big sister Kara - hence why I am using her as a pillow - and then keep my little sister DG at bay and out of the way while I play the games hehe... I surrounded us by all of these adorable toys from Cubic Cherry Kre-ationsBananaN,  Myrai Style - all of which are available at the Funny Puppet Fair, either on sale as exclusives, in the gacha machines that can be found in the Gacha rooms or as hunt prizes that are dotted all over the event space!
Then onto the Meme part of this post we move swiftly...  Berry asked us some questions that we can answer and get our friend to answer too about our Friend Lists... I've answered them and then gotten my sisters to answer some too!!!
Rudh’s answers:
What is the number of contacts on your Second Life Friends List? (visible in firestorm viewer or your web profile)? Right let me check... 210 people... That sound's really crap in comparison to Berry's list of friends, but I will admit that if I don't talk to you for a couple of months there may be a chance I will remove you from my list. Sounds really sad now considering how long I have been in SL lol...
Are you picky about who you add to your list or do you usually add most people? Most of the time I will add people that want me to add them but I would never add someone who never even spoke to me first. I might remove them later too... I know that sounds bad! There are people that I have to have on my list - designers I blog for, customers of Hell's store that need something, members of other MCs - but mostly I will only keep my friends in there...
Who is your oldest contact? (check your calling cards)? Fledhyris Proudhon
Who is your newest contact? (check your calling cards)? bigP Rae
How many do you speak to on a daily (weekly) basis? Daily I am thinking maybe about 10 - 15 people - I ALWAYS have a lot of IMs open no matter what I am doing, and Weekly maybe about 30 of the people in my list.
How many do you see/get together with in-world on a daily (weekly) basis? Well on a daily basis, the MC is around. I can't ever escape them LOL... They live on our sim! So I think I see at least 10 of them on a daily basis. I wish I saw more of certain people in my list though, maybe I should start going out more LOL...
Who on your list do you have the closest relationship with? My husband aside, I'd have to say My Fairy BobMother, Karakarasu and DysonCadeCardell.
Who do you wish you knew better? Adriana Steampunk - aka ㄅυƙι Ƥσяηﻛτєρ-ʙʀuɴseɴ - she's someone I met while I was working with Seraphim a long time ago, and she always seemed like such a cutie and so much fun to talk to... We stayed in touch but never really got to know each other!
Who on your list is the funniest/most entertaining? DysonCadeCardell is one of - if not the funniest - he makes me crack up regularly with his random animal noises. They are always guarenteed to make me smile, no matter the mood I'm in.

Our Wedding Bells were heard in SL...

On Friday of last week, our MC family decided to throw a little party in celebration of the fact that HellBone and I became a married couple in RL. We had thought about having a SL marriage to match our RL one, but then realised we didn't want the fuss... One wedding stressed me out enough lol, there was no way that I was planning a second for myself...
So a party was what was planned instead. Some amazing decorations - based on the theme of romance with Zombies LOL - the swamp looked like something that could have been the backdrop for an Oscars Party.
Of course, my computer chose that moment to kinda take a shit, and I wasn't able to move my camera at all or risk crashing into the abyss, so my awesome SL family stepped in once again to take some photos... HellBone and I had to go back to the venue the next day to take a few photos too... You know me I just couldn't resist!
The setting was so gorgeous and we had a performance from one of my favourite live singers in SL - Moon Spark... If you haven't heard her sing you should definitely try to catch one of her shows. I always sum her up as sounding something like Sheryl Crow but BETTER!
I just wanted to share some of the snapshots that were captured and use this as a chance to say THANK YOU to the organisers and photographers! Without you guys, life would be so quiet!
So the collection of photos in the collage were taken by DG and Peri, thank you girlies for managing to get some! Just one more photo for a quick close-up of my outfit...

Sandcastles and Yellow for Monday's Meme!

Miss Berry hit us with  a colour challenge this week... As soon as I saw it my mind was instantly taken back to the days when I was working with the other bloggerettes in the 52 Weeks of Colour Challenge! Though luckily this time we could pick any colour we wanted, our favourite if possible...
Now OK my favourite colour is black and I wear it an awful lot... I tend to dress myself in Red a lot too in SL, and in RL I wear a lot of blue, but if I was pressed into picking a colour - black aside - then it might surprise you as to what I would choose... The colour would in fact be Yellow. 
I love the warmth of yellow, I love the fact that things seem to look happier in yellow and I there are a lot of things that are yellow which bring nice memories... Daffodils for example always make me think of my mum! 
So yellow was the colour of choice today, and I knew just what I wanted to wear, and well when I wanted to pose I needed some help... Luckily the pervy Gator family came to my rescue... 
It wasn't meant to be pervy... I just asked in the MC family group if someone would help me sit on a cock by groping a boobie! How is that pervy?!! LOL, OK so I didn't mention that it was in my sandpit, but they should know that I am sweet and innocent right?! Luckily the other sweet and innocent - if she can ever make people believe that - member of the family Tink, came down and helped me with a sandcastle building competition hehe... 
So I got to pose in a bikini - that comes from a store called Bowtique, a store packed full of adorable things to wear! - in one of my favourite colours, which is also a colour I'd never normally wear, whilst beating Tink by building the best sandcastle LOL YAY!!! Thanks Berry!!!

A Malevolence within an Enchantment

The event that is Enchantment is back - with a bit of a twist on previous turn outs, but it is still on the same theme of the enchanted fairy tales. Something I can never get enough of... Whenever I am sick I always find myself curling up on the sofa in front of one of the Disneyized versions of these fairy tales. This time the Enchantment team have gone with one of my personal favourites, but that could be down to the fact that my brain is thinking of the Disney version here?!
I guess it didn't help that the MishMish item looks just like my favourite character from the Disney movie... I love Maleficent, she is the scariest and most evil looking of all of the Disney Villains. The Malevolent Doll - and avatar that is also available from MishMish at the event - has to be one of my favourite dolls in SL PERIOD! She's so cute I just want to pull her through the screen and smush her in RL! 
So anyway, on pulling her out of the box I thought I might try to make myself a little malficent style, which ended up looking nothing like her, but still pretty cute... 
The bodysuit was a past hunt item from DRBC and I also pulled out a past Arcade item too - haute.monde's Conquer All necklace - before throwing on lots of new pretties with them! I love the short necklace I am wearing, it is the new release from Cute Poison for Suicide Dollz called Miseria. I love that is is not too long and can be worn with longer necklaces, as well as high chokers, such as the tapi spiked collar I teamed it with. The last but not least, and possibly the most awesome horns I have ever worn, thing to show off has to be these Living Light Horns from The Plastik... Candles on my horns! BRILLIANT IDEA!!! Just no swishing my head too much, I don't want to have a hair on fire moment!!!

What is she wearing; 
Horns - The Plastik - Living Light Horns in Complete Birthday (Past FLF Item) 
Hair: Wasabi Pills - Kira Mesh hair in Crystal Pink

It always makes me nervous...

Very occasionally I get asked to take photos of other people, and if you hadn't realised in the past, this brings out the nerves in me... I love the pictures that I make, but never expect other people to, and so when I am asked - or even if I offer - it always makes me feel just that little nervous because you never know how someone is going to react to your vision of what they want. 
Still I love having someone to practice on besides myself, so when a friend asks a friend will get... Kara wanted me to take some of her recently and I spent a while wondering how I would pose her. She wanted something a little sexy... I wanted a good pose prop for the purpose, and then I remembered the chaise from Captivity Co Poses, and Kara could choose whichever pose she liked best! 
As always I played with the wind-lights, and Kara posed until I told her she could move again - she was a very good model as always LOL... It's nice when you can tell someone what to do and they will just do it without complaint LOL... Wish this happened more often with my little Gatorlings. 
I guess I feel more creative when I'm dosed up on cold medicine too lol... These pictures aren't half bad, even if the colour we randomly decided to go with is a little on the evil side hehe... 
I just hope she likes them *fingers crossed*...

(For details of what Kara is wearing please feel free to ask, I will get any details that I can from the lady herself... The pose prop is the Chaise made for Captivity Co Poses, although I am unsure if it is available any longer!) 

The Angels Are Coming For You

I had been working a photo for a few days now, something to show off an awesome new item from a store that I have always - since I first stumbled upon it during a hunt - been in love with. Yet sometimes things happen and the same outfit - in either life - can go from being a brilliantly fun and crazy look to suddenly taking on something more meaningful... This outfit is one of those. I say outfit but it was really just a pair of simple and very cute "home-made" style wings that Iokko Molko - of yumyums - has released for the current Fantasy Gacha Carnival, however due to the circumstances of yesterday it suddenly took on a whole lot more meaning - so Thank You Iokko!!! 
The reason for my rambling is a little RL, so I hope people don't mind me explaining it... Yesterday in Holland was a celebration day called Bevrijdingsday - Liberation Day - and it is a big celebration of the end of WWII and the freedom of the country from the Nazi Occupation in the war. The whole of the town I live in becomes like a giant party... People are allowed to sell their unwanted items in the park alongside the giant fair filled with rides, music and candy. It usually seems like a great day! 
I say usually because there was none of the party atmosphere in our house yesterday. HellBone and I were left saddened by the death of one of our pets, our Bearded Dragon called Earl. He never did much, but he was a presence in the house that you can really feel is absent on waking up today... So I am dedicating this post to him, and thank you to Miss Iokko, whose adorable wings in their rainbow of colours are definitely worth trying your luck in a Gacha for!! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Spellbound - Sunday 
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item) 
Neckalce: Pekka - Spiked Collar in Black/Copper Metal 
Wings: yumyums - Homemade Wings in Old Media (Available at Fantasy Gacha Carnival
Hands: SLINK - Avatar Enhancement Hands in Casual 
Pose: Captivity Co Poses - Harley Pose 1

We Pose for a Monday Meme...

Berry asked us about posing... The Meme I missed was about Poses and what kind of places we get our poses from and why we like them... Now I know that pose designers can sometimes be over looked when it comes to blogging, I mean we use them all the time but a lot of the time they get the merest hint of a suggestion with their store listed in the credits, so it seemed like a great idea... What I wasn't sure of was how I wanted to go with this post... Did I want to take a photo of myself taking a photo? Did I want to just pull a pretty picture out of thin air like magic? Then I thought " I want to pose with someone!", I hadn't done that in a while and this would be a perfect opportunity, but who?
A thought struck me to do a picture with one of the people that I am closest to, it's about time her and I had a sister/sister picture moment...
Kara is someone that I have gotten close to in recent months, our relationship started off as one that hit a brick wall of drama due to unnecessary jealousy from one of her friends and one of mine, but since that point - and since we got rid of those people from our lives - Kara has become a sister and one of my best friends... She's dependable, she's silly and makes me giggle, and she will stop me in my tracks if I'm being a mental case! After the last fiasco with family, I said no more but I am more than happy to add this lovely lady to my inner family circle... I just hope that the people around us can handle us as a duo LOL...
So Miss Berry, that is the reason I chose to post this photo on a post about poses, but you did us us to talk about our favourite stores... I will admit I don't go pose shopping often, but I do have a couple that I need to rave about...
CAPTIVITY CO POSES - this is one of my favourites and most often used pose stores... I love their singles and I love the props poses. I cannot get enough of the props poses, they are so useful and will often give me ideas for the direction that my photos will go in.
PRETENSE - another store I use the poses from A LOT... The singles poses from this place are great.
STARRY HEAVEN - a store that I love, but which seems to have stopped creating so much recently and which seem to be no longer available in-world! 
I will also admit to being a bit of a freebie or cheapie pose hound, I love looking on the Marketplace to find the freebies or the cheapies... This pose I used for the photo of Kara and I is a !Bang pose that I found for 1L!

What is she wearing; 
(Kara did write me a list of things she had on, but SL ate it! If you want to know anything in particular about her look please ask and I will find out for you!) 
Hair: Magika - Such 
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item) 
Face Wounds: (Forhead) REPULSE - Lobotomy, (Right Eye) Corvus - Scarred Face Tattoo,  AND, (Left Cheek) Corvus - Cheek Scars

Collar: tapi - Posh Spike Choker (Past Suicide Dollz Item) 
Necklace: random matter - Rhiannon Necklace in Black/Silver 
Jacket & Top: Beautiful Dirty Rich - Don't Label Me 
Pants: PANIK - Destroy Leggings in Noir
