Cyborg Rudh Dollies Now Available!

Horror Haute is here YAY!!! Though I think this month I am only likely to be able to bring you one look, because as of this afternoon I AM GOING HOME FOR A VISIT!!! It will be awesome not worrying about anything... I won't be here for a week, but never fear dear readers I will be back hehe... 
ANYWAY, Horror Haute... Now you might remember that they have started a new thing with the event... Each month the items on offer will be part of a different theme! This month's theme is Dead Space! 
Now, I will admit that I was actually REALLY scared by this theme... I can admit that I am more than a little scared of aliens - some people don't like spiders, others clowns, for me aliens are the worst - and so when I saw the theme I had to make Hell check there was nothing being sent that would make me have a heart attack! He said there is one item - a bouncy ball from La Maison Des Corbeaux apparently - that is alien themed and awesome, but aside from that most of the goodies seem to be a little more cyber goth than aliens... I breathed a sigh of relief LOL...
Anyway, this Horror Haute lead to the birth of Rudh the robot dolly... Brought to life in a Pod from Squeek, this dolly was made up of all of the latest parts! This particular robot dolly model is wearing the ImmateriA Dead Space look... She comes complete with dress, eyes and cyborg leg attachment. Skins, accessories and Hair are fully interchangeable! This model includes taketomi Kakoa hair which can be purchased seperately from The Gacha Mania event. 
This was brought to you by "Rudh's going away and will see you in a week people!"

Death Takes Me Away... A Berry Meme!

TIME FOR A BERRY MEME YAY!!!! Berry has stopped with the regular Monday Memes, can't say I blame her to be honest, they must have been hard work creating something like that every week, but she has promised that occasionally there will be a Meme pop up randomly and we can join in when they do! To be honest, that seems kinda exciting hehe, we never know what we will get or when one will happen hehe...
This time though things got a little morbid... That's not a problem with me, if you ever read my blog you will possibly have realised just how morbid I am at times hehe, but it's Berry's Birthday week, so some might think it's a little strange LOL!
Death look for me is normal LOL, I always say Rudh is like a Living Dead Girl - Thank you Mr. Zombie for giving her a theme song for her identity LOL - but when you have to make a look to fit a Meme, I tend to think ARGH what am I going to do, and even for a normal look for me I had this problem!?! Weird huh?! 
I pulled on some new, with some old and let myself die, all in the name of working on a Berry Meme hehe... 
Berry gave us a list of questions, as she sometimes does to go with a Meme... Let's answer those, shall we?!
Do you ever think about dying? How do you expect you’ll die? To be honest, although I live my SL as a zombie almost, I don't really ever think about dying in RL. It seems weird to think about it now, but I would prefer to be one of those people that died in my sleep. I know it will be hard for those left behind but I would rather that than something which caused them more pain than my passing alone, ya know?!
Do you believe in an afterlife? If so, how do you visualize it? I don't mind saying here that I am a non-religious person. I wouldn't say I am an Atheist as there are things that I believe in, a possible afterlife being one of them, but not the Heaven and Hell ideology. I'd like to think that my soul will continue on after my body dies, I've learnt so much for it to go to waste hehe...
What is your preferred form of apocalypse and why? I think if the world was going to end in an apocalyptic way it would have to be something that seemed really impossible. I mean OK I know Zombies aren't real, but you see them everywhere - in TV, film, stories, you name it - so maybe something totally random like a teddy bear apocalypse - a zombie teddy bear apocalypse - or a giant cookie apocalypse! That sounds like fun, right?!
How many times have you cheated death so far? Ummm, touching wood here, I don't think there is any occasion when I can say I have had to cheat death.
Which fictional villain would you be okay being killed by? First off, Berry, if Thor comes to save you - especially the Chris Hemsworth Thor - can I have him next? As for the fictional villain I'd be OK to be killed by Maleficent maybe, I always thought she was the scariest Disney Villain. However, if we were going to be saved from the villain, I'd also be willing to risk myself for any of the Supernatural Villains... Sam Winchester can save me ANYTIME!
If you’re murdered, do you stay and haunt the culprits forever or do you give up that opportunity to leave and go to heaven/hell/Cancun? It would depend on who I was allowed to haunt. I might stay by HellBone, not because I'd never want to leave him, but it would be fun to mess with his mind a little bit LOL... 
Will you have done everything you have wanted by the time you die? To be totally honest, I don't want to have... I want to die without knowing it's coming so that I won't even have the chance to think what didn't I do?! I take each day as it comes and try everything life throws at me... Least that way I can't say I wish I had done that when I had the chance!
Sounds so morbid, but it really gave me a chance to think while I was answering these! Next time you set up a Meme though Berry, how about something silly and frivolous?! LOL

What do you mean No Insurance?! Daddy can you pick me up?!

I have spent the last few weeks slowly, bit by bit, working through my hoard and trying to reduce it in size... Some older - ancient you might call them - items have been kept for posterity in a collection of time capsule style items, but a LOT of stuff has been disposed of... I haven't even started on my objects folder, I'm procrastinating on that one LOL...
BUT I have been finding one or two hidden gems that I couldn't wait to play around in!
One of those kinda finds was the one that inspired me to dress akin to Arial in the Little Mermaid, and run around at a place called The Black Spot Pirate Cove!
That was until there was a little Accident!?!!
She had to pick up her shell phone and make a call home to King Triton... "Daddy, I came up on land, went joy riding on a boat and wrecked it, can you come and pick me up?"
Sometimes my mind seems to run away with me, but this outfit was one of the most fun outfits I'd not even unpacked, laying dormant in my hoard. The outfit itself was a hunt prize that I had spotted aeons ago from a store called KnocKeRs - a store creating rockabilly for ladies with the larger nungas, although as you can see they fit the itty bitty titty brigade well too!
I accessorised my little mermaid based look with a Starfish Beaded Headband from Rotten Defiance, worn of course with some flowing long red hair - this time courtesy of Magika. Her necklace is another find in her hoard from [ glow ] Studio, and it seemed to fit the Ariel style, as did the Fork Bangle from AngelsDemons!
My last little find was this simply awesome purse from [HANDverk] that I had totally forgotten I spent ages, and a small fortune, on trying to win in a gacha at a past Arcade!! So perfect to finish off Ariel's night out look! Shame her night ended so badly LOL!

What is she wearing;
HairBand: Rotten Defiance - Starfish Beaded Headbands & Rings

The Winter of ImmateriA

ImmateriA's owner, Naenia Demina, is on a roll with making some amazingly gorgeously, beautiful, jewellery pieces at the moment. Her recent releases for the Witching Hour are some of my favourite things that she has made to date, and I always rave about how much I love the creativity behind her designs.
For the Witching Hour this time, the necklaces in the gacha machine would have driven me crazy if I had been trying to win them!
This is the Yggdrasil Choker in Gold - which is a rare, but there are a few variations of the necklace... My favourite being a spidery design called Tamsin, which is SO going to be a part of my Halloween look this year! I mean I think, I haven't actually organised it yet?!
The rest of my look was put together purely and simply to show off the pretty that is the necklace!
I found this pretty hood - called A Winter's Night Cowl - that perfectly matched a dress - called M'lady - both of which I had won from the store Junbug from a gacha. The two other items of jewellery that I added to my mystical look were an older but still cute Stellar piercing from Cute Poison and a brand new release from Arise called the Chess Septum Piercing, that you can pick up for 55L at Fi*Fridays!

What is she wearing;
Hood: Junbug - A Winter's Night Cowl in Royal (Past Fantasy Gacha Event Item)
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item)
Face Wounds: Utopiah - Excessive Pain Makeup
Piercing: Cute Poison - Stellar Piercing

Introducing Blake Laguna

Due to things that have happened as of late involving the idea of SL family, I have become very wary about taking anyone new into my inner family circle. I have my besties, I have the old family I still talk to on occasion, and I have the MC. Within the MC lifestyle, it seems common to refer to the people around you in your MC as brothers and sisters, but there are a couple of people within the Gators that I have actually let closer than most. I'm not afraid to admit it, I love each and every one of the Gators as they are now, but as with any social group there are always going to be people you feel closer to and more compatible with... 
Today I want to introduce you to one of them - the photo I took for him was too cute not to share hehe... 
Blake and I have had a weird time of relationships LOL... He called me mum for a while, and it was always creepy when he tried to sound British and call me Mummy! It was just like the weird Empty Child things from Dr.Who... ANYWAY, one day while drunk, Blake decided he would prefer to call me Sissy, and being totally honest with you, it felt so much better that way!
Since he became my brother, Blake has decided to take my surname, he's Blake Laguna now. He's a little bit crazy, he's my Asian "kung-pow chicken" - his words not mine - baby brother!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Xantheanne in Red 
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item) 
Face Wounds: (Under the Eyes) Utopiah - Excessive Pain Makeup, AND,  (Forehead) REPULSE - Lobotomy Stitches Face Tattoo 

Piercing: Cute Poison - Hush Piercing
Top: cheeky - Anna Half Shirt Mesh in Black
Pose: {pose maniacs} - 54

Super Cute and FUZZY!!!

I am a child of the 80s... Yes those crazy days of massive shoulder pads, even bigger perms and some of the coolest - and now most retro - things ever! I used to work with kids in my RL before I moved to Holland, and taught them about history... To some of them things like a walkman with a tape or the fact that we didn't have playstations and XBoxes seemed mind boggling! Though for me, it was definitely time when Toys were awesomest! I had a HUGE collection of My Little Ponies - don't even get me started on the mangled looking new style - and trolls, but one of my favourite toys was something I always called a Popple! 
The day they turned up in SL was the day I happy danced around my room and caused Hell to think that I had gone mad... BUT they were here!!! 
I tripped over one when I was roller-skating in my photo booth. It meant that my overly cute new Sweet Chocolate Outfit from NS - which you can pick up in a gacha machine at the new round of The Gacha Mania by the way - was accessorised with bleeding knees! 
The MishMish Fuzzball Bear, seems to be based on the Popples I loved so much as a kid, is available in three different colours at the moment from Collabor88. THEY ARE SO CUTE!!!! Each comes in three different styles, one for rezzing, one for wearing and one curled up in it's cute little ball ready to pop out and hug you!! 
It's like an adorable overload of uber cuteness!!! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: (Falling) Argrace - Akane, AND, (Standing) Ploom - Shiloh 
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item)

I took his heart... An Urban Apocalypse Love Story

Sometimes he annoys the crap outta me, but other times I look across the room and smile. Each of us glued to our respective PCs, each of us chatting animatedly on mic to our friends in SL, and I think to myself "we're a SL love story that made it!"
I decided that it was time for an updated picture of the two of us together. Trying to get HellBone to pose though, that's a different story... The guy complains and hates the fact that it means he cannot build for a few mintues LOL, and then as soon as he's sat down on a pose he says "Are you done yet?" Still... How'd you like the finished product? I stole his heart... Literally this time!
I found a pose I had to use on the marketplace while browsing the other day, it's called "I Take Your Heart" - from Tabou Irresistable - and it seemed like a weirdly perfect mix of the macabre, dark and kinda perfect for us... Weird saying that, but it's kinda true!
The Outfit he was wearing seems to be the same thing he's always in, and by always I really do mean ALWAYS!!! Same hair, MC vest, combat pants and even the same accessories lol, whereas I on the other hand am like a fashion chameloeon!
Let's see what am I wearing... The hair is one that I have been wearing a lot as of late, Truth's Rogue hair from Uber! It comes with the Gas Mask, and I simply couldn't resist. Sometimes I LOVE Truth hair, othertimes not... This was a LOVE!
I dressed myself in a cute, bargain priced outfit, from MODAN.MESH, which included the chain top and skirt for only 55L! Thank goodness for Fi*Fridays! Then began to accessorise...
Lots of chains around my neck, a little blood courtesy of Hell from Ama, some awesome ripped fishnet gloves from SongBird that had been set out for a past round of My SLINK Obsession and my always worn but not yet available heart tattoo made this living dead girl look perfect...
While I was taking pictures I did get a little creative too... LOL not sure if that's a good thing, you be the judge?!

Hair & Gasmask: Truth - Rogue (Available now at Uber)

Wave Bye Bye to Captivity

I heard something this weekend that made me feel sad, but at the same time it is always good news to hear that someone's RL is doing so well they simply do not have time for things in SL... RL should always come first in my opinion, no matter what your SL is getting upto...
A few days ago, a message was sent throught the Captivity Co blogger group to say that RL had caught up with the store's designer - Shannoncharlize GossipGirl - and that she would be closing the store in world.
She's sweetening the closure with a sale and everything will be reduced in price, but as someone who has really enjoyed using her poses I know that I am going to be sad to see the store close!
I pulled out one of my old favourite Captivity Co Poses - yea I know I've used this before - it just seemed right to rock the store out in style. The pose I used is one called ReAmped, but there are so many to choose from in store, don't miss out!
The outfit I wore for the pose was something simple... My favourite new boots from COCO, that you can pick up - along with the Rogue hair from Truth - at Uber, an old bass guitar made by my hubby, and a cute new rocker chick outfit from SAKIDE called Forward. This outfit is available now at the latest round of the Depraved Nation Thrift Shop!!
Thank you though to Shannoncharlize for allowing me the chance to work with you as a blogger for Captivity Co. I am sad to see you close the store, but I wanted to wish you all the best with your RL projects... To anyone else, if you wanted to grab some amazing poses at discounted prices head over the Captivity Co Poses Mainstore, I don't know how long you have and I would hate to see you miss out!

Hair: Truth - Rogue (Available now at Uber)

Is it Jewellery or Jewelry? That's not a Fair question hehe...

The big events in SL are always something that I look forward to wandering around, aimlessly shopping and hoping to find that one thing that I cannot live without. Being a part of the SL Bloggers Network opens a few doors... Namely this time the door to give us access to the current Jewelry Fair... I ran around like a kid in a candy store, and dived in head first and plucked up some courage to ask some of the participating designers if I could please have review copies... 
I got so excited like a kid in a candy store when designers actually responded LOL... Lilah, XanXan, tapi and Kerryth I hope you like what I've done with your designs, I'm actually getting nervous now I am at the point of posting them! 
The first collection of things that I pulled together features tapi and Spyralle... Spyralle first - as it's only fair alphabetically - Kerryth has made a lot of pretty things for this year's jewellery - and yes I am spelling it the English way here because I always forget how to spell it the American way lol - fair! One of the things that caught my eye in the blogger collection was this gorgeous Night Blossom Set, which includes the flower necklace and matching earrings. It's also available in other colours too, so you can wear the gorgeous fractal designs in a rainbow of colours! 
Then the tapi items... I'm wearing two different things from this store, and I will admit that I have become kinda addicted to the designs! Simple, yet grunge and more than a little must-have, the textures draw be back time and time again! The Plain Choke Choker, includes a hud for colouring the strap with ease, the metals too! Similarly with the Nailed Punk Cuffs, but these also come with ANKLE CUFFS too!!! Bargain I say!!
My second collection includes more Spyralle, but also a little AZE and some Sad Harlekin too! Starting with Spyralle as I've been there before LOL, the Riverbend Necklace was the entire reason that I had to beg - I really mean ask but beg seemed more appropriate of a term - to be allowed to blog for Spyralle! 
The Classico Veil face chain comes from Sad Harlekin - and I thought tied in well with the almost Egyptian shaped necklace I had chosen to wear - and when you choose a chain you don't just get ONE colour metal you get TWO! Who doesn't love a bargain like that!?! 
I finished this look off with some elegant - and fairly understated when you see them with the rest of this photo collection - pair of earrings from AZE Designs. Now normally I don't tend to bother with earrings, I am willing to admit that right here, as I tend to wear hair that covers my ears, but these were just too pretty to pass up! The somewhat renaissance style earrings are available in various metal colours, and stones at the Jewellery Fair... 
Lastly I have a little more of a punkish feeling when putting the final look together. I pulled a look together featuring tapi, Sad Harlekin and a new comer to this post Chaos Panic & Disorder... 
The tapi bracelet is another in the set released for the Jewellery Fair, this one being the Hammered Stud Cuff. 
I chose this Sad Harlekin face chain, called Chains of War. This one is Silver, and each can be worn with 1, 3 or even without stones... 
I fell in love with the last item as soon as I saw it in the Chaos Panic & Disorder booth... The Catitude Sets come in a range of feline colours, the black being my favourite but the calico looking very much like my RL sisters cat, Dot! Each colour set comes with a necklace and earrings, but my real concern here is how can anyone resist such adorable kitties?! 
There are so many booths at this year's Jewelry Fair, not just those of the designers that I have mentioned here, but don't miss this event if you love all things shiny!

Madame Duplessis

I don't know if you are anything like me but when I log in, most days I get a million messages with group notices and offlines, and so usually I always spend some time just slowly checking through them before beginning my SL day! Sometimes pretties catch my attention, other messages too, but I recently saw a notice from Naenia Demina of ImmateriA asking her bloggers for help.
I'm never one to turn down someone who asks for help... She wanted some photos of her creations that she could use as "artistically creative works to showcase the store."...
Now I know that I am not the best photographer SL has to offer, but I am learning and trying, both things that count I guess LOL... I had to give it a go, and decided to use one of the items that Naenia has given me recently!
The amazing collar from ImmateriA, is the Madame Duplessis Collar. It comes with a hud for 5 different designs, and each of those is a little dark, a little twisted, a little macabre some might say.
To showcase the collar on it's own, I kept the rest of the look fairly simple - well simple in a Rudhish way!
A wig with a hat, some simple bangles, a ring through my nose and bare shoulders were all it took to complete the look, just throw on some shadows and something simple just seemed to fall into place!
I just hope that Naenia liked it as much as she seemed to when I showed her hehe...

What is she wearing;
Hat & Hair: Wasabi Pills - Magician
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item)

Peacefully Restless after 4 years of Blogging...

Today my blog turns 4... I've been working on this little rambling diary now for four whole years! I've shared - including this one - 775 ramblings on topics that most normal people might ignore, and yet people have stuck with me for all this time! Thank you for being with me on the roller-coaster ride, allowing me that release of pent up blah LOL... 
Though one thing that always makes me kinda strange about the blog, and I guess the reason for a photo that seems so peacefully restless, is the date... I started blogging on September 11th - a day that will always be remembered historically - and sometimes I wonder how that came about?! Maybe I just wasn't thinking on the day that I opened up blogspot and started to write?! 
So much has happened since then, and doors have opened for me that I would never have imagined I'd be walking through, so again, thank you to the people that read this, inspire this, and feed the addiction by providing me with things... 
The look I am wearing is one of those what could be called "Looks of the Day" and it features a few of the newest things I've gotten my little grabby hands on, including the awesome Bandeau Suspension top from DRBC and Rose Headband from DirtyStories - both of which are available at the current round of Suicide Dollz - and the adorable Jinx pigtails, which were given away free from Truth not too long ago! My nail varnish is my new favourite, a white and bloody design from KOSH, that can be picked up from My SLINK Obsession now, and the last thing that I want to share is the cute but barely visible necklace from yumyums. The Birthstones Necklace collection are available now at this month's We <3 RP, and have not just the 12 different stones for each month, they also have two galactic - and very pretty - stones too!!! 
I tried a close up of the Galactic version that I am wearing, but then felt bad about not showing the others because they are all equally gorgeous, so I made a collage of the full set...
Which one did you want to get yourself?!

I ain't no Crazy Cat Lady?!

I've wanted a Cat in RL since I moved to Holland over 4 years ago. HellBone said No, he's not a fan of cats due to the fact that in RL he was a gardener!! I, however, miss my cats that I left behind with my parents so much... So is it any wonder that sometimes I find myself surrounded by cats in SL?
Three things to show you, all kitty related and one with a story to tell... Hmmmm where to start? Perhaps a picture would help...
The first kitty is my new pet... I named him Charlie - based loosely on an awesome Cat I've come to know in RL! He comes from aisling at The Arcade, but he will now be taking up residence in my house, laying on a dog cushion I think hehe... 
The second kitty thing that I have to share, and OK it isn't totally clear here but I love the way it moves, is the adorable Curious Kitty Tail from yumyums. This can be found now at the latest round of the One Word event, which funnily enough just like this post is full of Cats! 
Lastly and possibly least noticeable of the three is this awesome tiger face paint. THIS WAS FREE - yes people you read that right FREE - and I had an awesome family outing at the same time! Basically, long story short, the MC took one of it's members - our baby Athrun who just turned 19 - to the Oasis Zoo in SL! If you haven't been it's pretty well set up, with a large collection of animals, and it even features a reptile house and aquarium!! We had such a good time, a group of 20 bikers running around like overly excited kids... that was until we got our faces painted anyway and the bikers became wild animals... Rawr I'm a tiger!

Fairy Lights

The Magic in the swamp seems to be lingering at the moment, and for some reason it is drawing out all kinds of magical looks that I normally try so hard to keep stashed beneath the surface. I decided to just run with it, rather than keep them stashed away... It's definitely getting my blogging mojo twitching just a little more than normal anyway hehe...
This time rather than the dark voodoo magic of yesterday, the intrusion into the swamp was from a rather fierce looking fae!
I am not sure what is sparking the need to dress up so much at the moment, maybe it's the proximity now to Halloween - my favourite time of the year - but I just can't seem to help myself when it comes to finishing a look, I am just drawn to making something look like a character?! LOL...
The look came about because of some of the fun new things that I picked up at this month's round of We <3 RP. The rather hot, although kinda scaly, Gator Corset from Arwen's Creations, was kinda a no brainer that I HAD to have it when you consider what family I ride with lol, but I normally avoid this realistic look animal skin so I was surprised that I was drawn to it so quickly, it was a case of see and "Gimme Gimme Gimme"! I accessorised with a few other We <3 RP goodies, like the gold epaulette style Armour necklace from ANE and the Sad Harlekin Onesight Mask, then the rest of the outfit just fell together... I even found some old release but still really cute wings from Epic that had lain buried and kinda forgotten!!
The last thing this little dark Fae had to do was collect her lamp - and matching necklace - from the Half Deer Arcade and then she could light the way through the dark swamp, leading people across it safely... Or would she?!

Hair: SpellBound - Warrior

Voodoo Voodoo

"I'm not the one whose so far away when I feel the snake bite into my veins, never did I wanna be here again and I don't remember why I came..."
Such a good song, definitely one of my favourite mellow, chillaxing songs, not normally the sort of thing that would help get my creative juices flowing but I just cannot help singing this awesome tune while I have been working on something a little dark and mysterious!
The look has been one that I have been wearing on and off for a while now, since I first saw the theme of the recent Fantasy Collective that is... I've also had the Godsmack song in my head since then - and as much as I love it, it's time I was allowed to think about other songs for a while!
The voodoo queen in me escaped my imagination and took a dance in the moonlight swamp a few nights back. Her worn - or Mad - leather pants, from the creators of Yasum and her R3volt(ing) shirt made for simple, yet comfortable trekking through the swamp.  Her magical tattoo seeming to gloaw in the moonlight, as she stops and looks over her shoulder... A Spyralle Crown of the Bayou on her head, and the Witch Doctor Mask and Staff of the Death Row Designs at hand, she wandered through the murkey waters before disappearing back into the night!
Time to get the song out of my head... Let me put it into yours LOL... Godsmack's Voodoo...
