Don't Panic, the Paranormal Investigators are here!

Finally my favourite day of the year is upon us, and I can run around and look crazy silly in whatever costume I want and no one can say anything - not that I'd listen to them if they did anyway - because it's HALLOWEEN!!! Better than Christmas - although that comes a close second - and all of the other holidays, and I will include International Talk Like A Pirate Day here too, Halloween has and always will be my favourite time of the year!
Now I bet you're expecting some weird and wonderful costume from me today... That may happen I might post something a little extra later on, but for now I did something a little normal looking hehe... Heck everyday for me is a dress up day, so maybe normal should be a Halloween costume?!
So yes... I look normal... But I had to... I just started my first day on a new job, working with a Paranormal Investigation Team called "I want to Believe". They'd been sent into a house with some very strange paranormal activity, and needed an extra pair of hands!
OK so I didn't get a job doing that, but you do get to join in an investigation during the best event of the year in SL!
I am referring to the newest - and 8th edition - of the Pulse Games Event... Don't Panic!
It's been open a while now, but I just wanted to spend time exploring it with a little less lag... Trust me waiting nearly killed me LOL...
The outfit I'm wearing is the least of my excitement in this photo, but seeing as I'm in it, I'll tell you about it LOL...
The hair is a newer creation from Magika, called Beans, which I seem to be wearing a heck of a lot hehe... Then with a pair of old jeans, I pulled on a new shirt and Aviator Jacket in a gunmetal colour from Foxes.
I wish you luck on your ghost hunting expeditions... I will never forgot what I found, and maybe by this time next wear I will have found a job elsewhere within the Pulse Games Events!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Magika - Beans
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item)
Face Wounds: (Under the Eyes) Utopiah - Excessive Pain Makeup
Piercing: Cute Poison - Starlust Piercings

PINK AND PURPLE?! Am I feeling OK?

LOL, Like the title of this post suggests, THIS is a fairly rare thing for me! Pink and purple - although OK granted I do pink a little more - are two colours that rarely, if ever, become a part of my wardrobe! Somehow though, I was pulled in that direction and one are the Halloween looks, to be replaced by something that looks overly candified! Maybe this could be a Halloween costume for me though?! I mean a Zombie needs to do something different?! 
I think though, that I will blame the colour choices for this look largely on the skin and the hair!  
Starting with the hair because it's less to talk about, as I have already worn this style in a previous post, it's a SpellBound style called Velvet - this being the Aubergine colour - that can be won in the TAG Gacha machine just outside the store! 
Then yumyums... The store's items play a big part in this look - so maybe I can partially blame Iokko for the colours LOL - and it is in fact the entire reason I started thinking for this look because I wanted to create something to show off the Tiara! 
The tiara - or Daily Queen Crown - is a yumyums prize that will be available during the newest round of Enchantment. The new round starts soon, with a theme based on Rumplestiltskin - such a good and somewhat forgotten story by the way - and it will be the prize available that you could choose for their stamp card rally. It sounds complicated, but it's not... You buy any item from the Enchanted line-up and receive a stamp card, you take that card to all of the participating stores and touch the stamp to get a mark on the card, then when you have a full card you head to their prize location and you can choose whatever you like from a selection by each of the participating designers! See... Simple! 
The skin I'm wearing is also a yumyums... This version of the Stasey skin in it's Purrrty colours can be found at the Body Mod Fair 2014 - but hurry because the event ends soon! I emphasised the pink colours by adding some adorable Heart FRECKLES from MiaSnow, and some very pretty Voodoo Eyes in a Nebula Pink colour from Buzzeri, to give it that extra girlie feeling hehe... 

What is she wearing;
Tiara: yumyums - Daily Queen Crown (Available soon for Enchantment) 
Hair: SpellBound - Velvet in Aubergine (Available for now TAG Gacha)
Skin: yumyums - Stasey in Purrrty (Available now at Body Mod Fair 2014
Eyes: [Buzzeri] - Voodoo Eyes in Nebula (Past Event Release) 
Piercing: Cute Poison - Starlust Piercings

Horror Haute Fades for October...

Horror Haute is slowly beginning to fade into the setting Autumn sun for October... Friday brings the most exciting day of the dead for the year, but it also sees the doors close on the coffins of the Horror Haute Vampires... 
I wanted to make one last salute to the blood drinkers, and another nod in the direction of the awesome and creative designers that offer up their horrific goods every month! 
As you can see, I took the sulty, and classic, route for my last trip into Vampire land... Being honest it's not somewhere that Zombie me feels really comfortable. I mean I KNOW they are undead too but they drink blood while their dinner is still alive... Least we mutilate ours to death first LOL... 
I took a walk to the Horror Haute Skybox, where you can pick up all of these horrific goodies, and bumped into a friend. He told me to tell Anna and Themis that his arms are getting tired as the pumpkin is heavy LOL... 
Though he did compliment me on my dress... The Sanguisuga Dress - from ImmateriA - is very striking... Being honest, not something that I might have chosen to buy if I saw it on the shelf. At first glance it seemed like there was too much going on, but when I really looked at it, it just seemed too beautiful not to at least play with a little... I AM SO GLAD I DID! I love the ruffled flamenco skirt, and as it's separate from the top, I will admit that I've been wearing it with a simple top too! 
There is also call for a close up today too, because I need to show off the skin and make-up a little more clearly... 
There we are, much easier to see hehe... 
I wanted a skin that seemed a little more Vampire, and a lot less my usual lol, and I got very lucky as Stargazer Creations had sent me a copy of their Horror Haute Vampire Skin Set! So many different make up choices, with and without cleavage and bloody mouths for the messy eaters lol... The eyes are also part of the set, so it is definitely well worth checking into! 
I felt though, that it was missing something... What I didn't know, but definitely SOMETHING! Helena Stringer - of The Stringer Mausoleum - proved to have that something I needed! She created the striking eye make-up I put on. Called Night Queen, it comes in a set of 9 bright colours, that will wake up any face in the dark of the night! 
One more thing to say... That's all folks... No more Horror Haute from me until next month! You don't need to wait long, it runs the last week of the month and ooooh it's going to be a good theme... Think colours, think dead things, think RAINBOWIFYING RUDH!!! YAY! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Analog Dog - Wound Up in Dark Reds
Skin & Eyes: Stargazer Creations - Horror Haute Vampire (HORROR HAUTE OCTOBER)
Make-Up: The Stringer Mausoleum - Night Queen in Mustard (HORROR HAUTE OCTOBER
Face Wounds: (Under the Eyes) Utopiah - Excessive Pain Makeup 
Piercing: Cute Poison - Starlust Piercings
Outfit, including Gloves: ImmateriA - Sanguisuga (HORROR HAUTE OCTOBER
Pose: PRETENSE - My Hand Obsession 2

Have I got something on my Face?

One of my favourite things that I am finding myself using a lot more than I ever thought I would at the moment is the Gator MC Halloween Maze.
If you haven't been to check it out, I would love to see you over there and would love even more to hear what you think, but I have a reason that is MUCH more selfish than wanting to see people enjoy the people I'm surrounded by's efforts. Much Much more selfish!
Basically for the whole month of October, right around the exact time I am needing plenty of horrorific locations, I have the perfect Horror Sets right in my own backyard hehe... I am, as you may have noticed, taking full advantage of the Gator Maze!
This photo for example was taken in the Butchery Horror Room - designed by two of our MC members, and built by HellBone and Jimmy - the room seemed to be the perfect back drop for one of my favourite Halloween looks I've been wearing so far!
The look started with a dress from a store I'd never heard of called Kaithleen's - but is now somewhere I need to check out for sure - that I stumbled upon at The Bloody Horror Fair. I LOVE the simple girlie, almost dungaree summery style of the dress and it's basic cotton look, that has been soaked in blood! I knew that I wanted to cover myself in blood but HOW?
Simple! I discovered an event called The Unique Varied Event that was hosting a round themed on the horror of the moment... Then I stumbled upon a store I barely knew called BabyDoll... They had some AWESOME wounding specially for the event, a Bloody Blindfold and even a new piercing for me called Ouch - and yes that is a knife in my face!
Yay I thought, I could coat myself in blood from Ama... The favourite, and possibly best bloody splatter I could have bought hehe...
I finished the look off by wrapping some barbed wire around my feet and calling them shoes. The Blight Heels from Razor, are my new painful shoes of choice!!

Hair: Magika - Beans
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item)

Absolutely Starving

Ever have that feeling of being absolutely starving and not being able to do anything about it?!
Today at work, sat in the office I opened this post, ready to start writing something and WOW I find myself feeling absolutely starving, which actually works very well with the photo I've chosen LOL...
The reason I am so starving in my office is all thanks to my wonderful colleagues, who at 10AM were eating ramen... All the doors and windows were closed, and the heating was on as they all found it cold, so I was left sitting a warm room that smelt of food!!! Never a good combination when you're already sleepy and hungry LOL...
Still it kinda fits with my new Horror Haute Vampire look...
Walking through the woods, I stumbled upon some new areas... I thought I knew the swamp like the back of my hand, but these places seemed to appear from the mist! The Master of the Night's Crypt creaked and groaned as the gates swung open inviting little vampire me inside, whilst his Dark Forest Library offered a chance for me to take a peek in a myriad of historic tomes - both of these things are available now from Howling Asylum for Horror Haute by the way - and each of them seemed so welcoming.
The outfit itself was one that I had been wearing for a few days, and I thought I looked pretty cute - some said hot and that could just be the combination of the LBD and thigh high boots?! - but with just a simple addition it became the look of a ravenously hungry vampire!
The dress, an event release from the store Haste, is definitely my current favourite LBD - or Little Black Dress to those who don't know the acronym - and when teamed with my all time favourite BAX Regency Boots it creates a sexy but simple look... I being slightly random of course had to Rudhify it, and make it a little kookier! I was meant to be undead after all, so with the addition of a few strategically placed wounds, and a Zombitch Necklace - that you can pick up from Love Zombie - the look was complete!!
Now remember I mentioned before that due to the colleagues keeping it warm and making lots of food smells whilst I was starving... WELL... The little Vampire in me needed to eat, and she is a Messy Eater LOL. The Messy Eater bloody mouth make-ups come in three different styles, each getting more and more bloody from SongBird for the October round of Horror Haute...
Wow I'm on a roll with Horror Haute... There's still yet more to come too hehe...

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Neria (Available now at Mystic Realms Fair)
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item)
Eyes: [theSkinnery] - Demon Eye 3
Face Wounds: (Under the Eyes) Utopiah - Excessive Pain Makeup, AND,  (Forehead) REPULSE - Dead Forehead Wound Face Tattoo

Did you just say No?!

I have Horror Haute on the brain at the moment, purely and simply because there is so much good stuff within the line-up it's hard not too... That and I've been wracking my brain for their blogging co-ordination - but that's a story which I will have to keep to myself lol...
The theme this month, as I have said before, is Vampires... Being a Living Dead of the Zombie variety in my day to day SL, somehow becoming a vampire was a bit like shedding a skin and slipping into another dead one LOL - which actually sounds pretty gross, but as it's Halloween this week maybe I can get away with it?!
The weird thing is though, for some reason I just didnt want to go all out creepy looking, classic pale vampire... I tried to modernise the vampire look without going all Twilight, whilst still keeping my kookie style intact... I think I managed LOL!!!
Incorporating Horror Haute into the outfit I was wearing seemed the best idea, and to do that I just picked out - from the HUGE collection, most of which you can see in my investigative post previously hehe - a cute shade of black Czarny Kanarek lipstick, you'll have to excuse the traces of my lunch however.
The rest of my outfit is non-Horror Haute, but I was wearing it around at home and liked it enough to throw together what could be called a look of the day post! The hair, complete with it's HUGE bow, is a TAG Gacha release from SpellBound, available in many colours, I was lucky enough to win the white version! The outfit itself comprised of an old, but one of my favourites, pair of leggings from Sn@tch, and a brand new jacket from Razor called Cataclysm Tri-Jacket. I fell in love with this jacket as soon as I spotted it, it's biased cut, high-necked, has a lack of a back, but it just called to the biker chick in me and so long as I don't fall off and therefore can avoid the road rash, it will look perfect on the back of a bike!!
Lastly the pose I wanted to share is an older one but still great to use from elephante poses! Voodoo is something that although associated with this time of year, has no real Halloween connotations, does it?! I mean OK I know Voodoo is sometimes seen as a kind of evil, torture, especially with things like Voodoo Dolls, but Halloween does seem to have almost adopted the idea for it's own evil uses hehe...

What is she wearing;
Hair: SpellBound - Velvet (Available now for TAG Gacha)
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item)
Face Wounds: (Under the Eyes) Utopiah - Excessive Pain Makeup
Piercing: Cute Poison - Starlust Piercings
Lipstick: Czarny Kanarek - Vampire Lips (HORROR HAUTE OCTOBER)
Top: Razor - Cataclysm Tri-Jacket (Past Event Release)
Ring: Cute Poison - Bitch Ring in Black
Leggings: Sn@tch - Bomber Latex Pants in White

Mirror, Mirror, Take Control...

Mirror, Mirror, Take control, Of my Living Dead Girl Soul...
Pageant winner as you see, Have your evil way with me...
Mists within you have the power, In the darkest, haunting hour...
I am yours now, Heart and soul, Mirror Mirror, Take Control.
I got randomly creative with this one... I think it was a mixture of the prop, the costume and the Halloween feeling in the air! I also got a little saucy with it... Sorry if it offends anyone, but I wanted to use that spirit in the mirror in a depraved kind of way, and make it seem like it had taken control of the dead beauty pageant winner that had arisen from her slumber!
The mirror and its heap of skulls is a creation from ImmateriA. It had been given up as a hunt prize within the Gator Maze, but the hunt is now over and all of the prizes will be returned to their designer owners! Thank you to those people that donated gifts for the hunt, we hope that you had some interest from new shoppers!
The outfit was one of my "costumes" - although I wore it just because I liked it hehe - but it did cause a bit of a stir, as well I was mostly naked!
The most obvious part of this look has to be the wounding! I mean you really cannot miss the fact that I have been cut up and my skin has been removed in large chunks! Thanks to F'N'HawT and it's weird sense of Skin Deep Fashion, The Beauty Pageant - running until November 1st - will never be the same again LOL... The Zombie Queen Sash was a prize worthy of a winner, from the store STATIC... To finish the look I added a pair of specially made Collabor88 Prudence Pumps from Noodles... These skin pumps are perfect for walking the stage and wowing the Zombie judges!!! 

What is she wearing;
Tiara: Canimal - Boneyard Voodoo Tiara (No Longer Available!)
Hair: Magika - Mint

Vampires Shouldn't SPARKLE! A Horror Haute Investigation!

Horror Haute is upon us once again - admittedly I am a couple of days late to start posting this, but I have been unable to think about anything recently as my mind has been so busy! Horror Haute took on a brand new meaning for me this month... I have become their brand new Blogger Manager - *squeaks in delight* - and so I am slowly working through the process to kick the blogging for this event into a new gear! If anyone fancies becoming a blogger of the Macabre every month, please let me know, but for now I am watching, waiting and working on some stuff in regards to the process LOL... 
Still this month is all about VAMPIRES!!! Be they the monsters from classic horror, or even - and I say this with a look of disgust somewhat - the sparkly variety from the new heights of Twilight... Horror Haute has them this month! 
As you can see the old school vampire in me is totally against the - and please don't hate me for the wording here - Twishite variety! VAMPIRES SHOULDN'T SPARKLE IN THE SUNLIGHT! Is it just me that thinks that?! 
There was so much awesome for Horror Haute this line-up that it will be present a lot here for the coming week... But I wanted to start off by showing off some of the bigger things you can get your undead hands on! 
The Coffin - which my Twilight Vampire is about to be murdered in - comes from la maison des corbeaux  and includes a collection of different poses for your sleeping pleasure hehe... Although now that it is in the parlour, alongside the Queen Vampire's De Baza throne, the queen herself looks far from impressed! Silly Twilight Vampire, taking the warmth of the undead queen's fire for herself... Howling Asylum's Dark Master's Fireplace is the perfect addition to any Vampire home!!! 
Let's take a closer look at the difference between a modern "Twishite" Vampire and an old-school Vampire Queen shall we? 
The Twilight style Vampire wears something very modern and this "The Vamp" outfit from The Untitled provides the hot new look for the undead! It comes complete with a Jacket and Skirt, as well as socks, which are not shown here - just so long as you don't mind the mess of lunch in the skirt?! To finish the look this little Twilight Vampire has slicked on some Czarny Kanarek Black Lipstick, and a necklace of true Twi-Hard style Brack-A-Brack body glitter, for when she needs a sunlit moment! 
The Vampire Queen is a little more classical looking... Her NS-Riel Baelle Skin will shimmer in the moonlight, and her large Skindustrial Bodyworks eyes are perfectly offset by her elegant make-up. She wears an elegant gown, hand crafted by Insanity Incorporated and finishes her style with a simple nod to the modern style in the form of this Brick-A-Brack Twice Bitten Necklace! 
As you can see, two very different styles for the vampires who stalk the night... Personally I will be sticking with the old-school variety... The Twilight vampires have deformed into sparkles in the sun and that could be a more than dangerous thing to witness! 

What is she wearing;
Look 1: 
Hair: Taketomi - Ayame Bento (Past Event Release)

Taking a Walk

I mentioned the TAG Gacha Event before, but I had to admit that I am counting my lucky stars with at least one of the stores in the line-up!!! 
You might have realised that I am a little obsessed with a store that pumps out so much cuteness, I have to take it all in slowly or risk fear of being made to explode in an explosion of uber cuteness! 
The fact that these items are in a gacha machine may be a good thing, I mean that way you get less of an explosion... Unless you're like me and NEED all of them!! 
I'm talking about MishMish and the freakily adorable Scawy Monsters! They will follow you around, and if they get hungry, bite you're ankles... BUT they are so easy to forgive because they are just so cute!!!   
SEE!!! I was taking a walk in the garden and was joined by a Scawy Monster that has aspirations to be Freddy Krueger when he grows up! How could I say no to that! There are so many different Monsters... I had such a hard time choosing which one to take a walk with to be honest! They range from some cute colourful ones, to known monsters and even if you're really lucky a rare unicorn or avatar! 
As I said I had such a hard time choosing who to share with you here, that I had to include the MishMish Scawy Monster Key - which includes all of the options you can win in the gacha machine - here with you! 
The only other thing that needs to be mentioned here, and which to be fair seem perfect for Halloween, are these awesome boots from REIGN! These were a past event release, but I am sure they are available at the main store, and unlike a lot of the REIGN shoes, they are made to wear with the SLINK Mid feet - so bare that in mind if you're our to buy these!

What is she wearing;
Skin: Glam Affair - Candy Skin in America 09 (Past Arcade Item)
Boots: REIGN - Sidney Boots in Black (Worn with SLINK Mid Feet) (Past Event Item)
Monster: MishMish - Scawy Monsters (Available now at the TAG Gacha Event)

I could be your Whore?!

You might have noticed by now that I am a little into the macabre, gory, evil side of style in SL... In RL I a very much a jeans and t-shirts kinda girl that always wears her chunky boots and never bothers with make-up, but in SL that style is left at the log in screen and here I become a girlie, grungy living dead dolly...
Today I was feeling inspired! I was out shopping, exploring the awesome Bloody Horror Fair, and I stumbled upon a helmet that made a song pop so far into my head it's been stuck there ever since! Luckily it was one of my favourite songs at the moment!!! Now I'm going to share it with you LOL...
The Hellraiser Helmet, from Goth1c0 and found exclusively at Bloody Horror Fair, was the inspiration for this look, and it was all based on a look by In This Moment's singer - Maria Brink. Their video for the song "Whore" sees her wearing a horned helmet similar to this one, and biting her fingers drawing blood! I couldn't resist paying homage to that in my own Rudhish way!
I went down a similar gory, whoreish route to Rudhify but replicate her style by accessorising... Leaving my favourite new collar on from ginchi, I added the brand new "Gore Whore" Necklace from Cute Poison - which like the helmet can also be found at Bloody Horror Fair!
The scribblings all over my chest are something that I had noticed a while back on the marketplace and they had never really fit any of the looks that I had been going for... The Truth Tattoo, from Corvus, is a series of words scribbled across your chest ranging from Selfish to Empty and hitting a few other harsh truths in between... I hope that no one would ever agree that I am any of those things, but I guess the person that is could be a true Hellraiser?!
Just one more thing before I finish up here... Seeing as my look is loosely based on the look of Maria Brink, in a particular music video, I guess I should share it so you can see what I am talking about LOL...

What is she wearing;
Helmet: Goth1c0 - Hellraiser Helmet (Available now at Bloody Horror Fair)
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 - Starlust Piercings
Mouth Blood: Suicidal Unborn - Bloody Mouth
Collar: ginchi - Jingle Bell Collar in Worn Leather Black (Available now at The SLGBTA Halloween Gacha Spooktacular Event)
Necklace: Cute Poison - Gore Whore Necklace (Available now at Bloody Horror Fair)
Ring: Cute Poison - Bad Luck Ring in Silver

Pose: PRETENSE - My Hand Obsession 4

TAG! The board is it!

There is a new gacha phenomenon in town that seems to be taking many SL'ers by storm... The Arcade is one of the biggest and best known shopping events that SL has to offer these days, but I think that this could be bigger, better and a little more entertaining?!
I am talking about TAG Gacha... If you love the Arcade, you will no doubt love this equally as much, and with the addition of a trail to follow, each area with a different section of a storyline and some fab prizes then I am sure you may love this even more... I know I did!
It's well planned, well executed and filled with some cute stores that will appeal to all different tastes. PLUS, if the chance of regular games of chance in the gachas wasn't enough for you, then the addition of the Mystery Tickets in which you can win super rare prizes makes it all the more exciting! I REALLY HOPE that this event comes back more, because it was fun to waste some time doing!!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!
I really enjoyed hopping around to different stores and finding some hidden gems during this event... I also, as is always with Gacha Machines, spent far too much money hehe... Some of the prizes I won seem perfect in combination, very spidery, which was lucky as maybe blending in will help me avoid the spiders in the maze?!
The Venomous Hair - who'd have ever thought that I would choose to wear blonde and pink hair? - is an Olive creation. I've not really paid much attention to the Olive hairs, but I think I am going to have to shop there and try some demos at least now! The Gemma Skin, complete with it's wounded mouth, from [theSkinnery], and the Clemmm Scope Eyes worked perfectly together to create a somewhat broken dolly effect, and the addition of the adorable little Half Deer Heart Hugger Bat made the whole outfit a lot cuter. Well as cute as a mummy spider can get as she glances back at her large Hanging Spider Egg Sac, available now from Botanical. All of these things are TAG Event Items!!! How cool is that?!
One more thing that needs a mention but isn't TAG, is the cute dress I'm wearing. This, although only the top is visible, is a dress released from Strumpettes for the past round of the Witching Hour event. It's an underbust dress with optional layers to cover the nungas, and as a spiderweb design, this one is fairly cute hehe... Just because the Witching Hour is over this month, doesn't mean you can't find it so don't feel like you've missed out, and therefore if you wanted it, please don't kill me hehe!!!

Hair: Olive - the Venomous Hair (Available now at the TAG Gacha Event)

Will Autumn come to the Swamp?

It's AUTUMN!!!! I love this time of year, it's the season that Halloween calls home, but it's also one of the times of year when nature feels golden! I love that still slightly warm sun, the radiant glow of the light in the reddening trees and even love the rain!
Even in SL things are heading in a much more Autumnal direction - which must be weird for people in the southern hemisphere... Must ask Jimmy - well they are, everywhere except the Gators MC Sim... HellBone wants to keep it swampy, and gator infested swamps don't have seasonal change much do they?
I did find a little corner of Autumn... Somewhere the leaves needed raking up and the dead grass could be turned into a hay bale for all the cute little animals that live near my house this winter!
While I was doing that I needed something a little more comfy to wear... Thank heavens for my new shirt dress! I saw these dresses advertised at Collabor88 from Atomic, all of the designs were cute but this one with it's "No Good, Very Bad, Always Evil" Design really fitted with the way I live my SL hehe - least I try to but others might well disagree!
I kept the rest of my look simple, as I was working in the garden, everything except for my hair and horns that is! The Hair and it's Horns accessory is called Neria, and it can be found at the Mystic Realms Fair in the Truth Booth. I know I've said it before sometimes Truth hair for me is take it or leave it... In the right outfit it can be perfect, but it can also look wrong... I know so many people who say Truth hair is their favourite and I will give it to you I love the textures and styles... This one was just what I wanted, and as they say sometimes you win but sometimes you lose hehe...

Would it be Halloween without Black Cats?

I know I've said this a fair few times already this month, and in the past few years but HALLOWEEN IS MY FAVOURITE HOLIDAY!
I've been playing dress up like crazy so far this month, and loving every minute of it too! There are so many fun and macabre things to buy out there that this living dead dolly simply doesn't have enough time to get to them all!!!
One thing that always seems to remind people of Halloween is the Black Cat. Often seen as a familiar for a witch, the black cats can be regarded as bad luck... Personally, I WANT ONE Lol!
HellBone won't let me have one, SO I made my own LOL... ME! He can't tell me no lol...
The reason I decided that I wanted to be a black kitty cat, aside from the fact that Hell can't tell me no this way, was that I wanted to wear this cute hoodie hehe... The hoodie was one that I bought a while ago from AMERIE, at a past event, and I LOVE the cute ears and large hood which you can fit lots of different hair styles into! I kept the kitty theme by wearing my favourite new collar from ginchi, but I realised that I had a bit of an issue as the hoodie was so open hehe... Pulling on a noldie but classic from Crazy, I was missing just one thing! SOCKS! Unfortunately as I pulled socks up - also from AMERIE by the way - my huge claws slipped through the thin fabric... BUGGER but hey cool enough to wear right hehe...

Even Pretty Fairies Get Cold Feet!

Horror Stories are just fairy tales bottled up in a dark veneer... Many fairy tales are sparkled up anyway to make them seem prettier and more child friendly, but if you read them in their original state, it can be a blurred line to see where fairy tales and horror stories divide! This time of year the horrors seem to be taking over, but I'd been shopping - as I seem to do almost all of my free time LOL - and at a fantasy gacha event called The Gathering, I found the most amazing socks so the fairy tale in me took over hehe! 
Yes my whole look is inspired by socks LOL... Although the fact that I am a pretty fairy was totally due to my mood hehe... I wanted to be evil, I truly did but somehow ended up as a naughty and kinda cheeky looking fairy! 
Let me pull your attention back to the EPIC SOCKS!!! These are a creation of Death Row Designer - Jaimy Hancroft - and as soon as I saw them I HAD to have some! As I have said, they are available in a gacha at The Gathering, and can be won as items to make up a fairy outfit in 4 different colours. I wanted the Black and White pair, purple so isn't my usual colour BUT these do look pretty EPIC! At the same time, and from the same machine, I won these pretty wings too... They are in fact from different colour outfits, but to be honest that's part of the good of this machine, unless you want one specific you can mix and match the looks! 
The rest of the outfit just fell into place around my socks and wings... Normally I HATE working from an accessory and creating an outfit, but the wings seems to know exactly which set of lingerie I had - the Ruffle Lingerie from Bowtique by the way - that would match colour wise, and then even the Mist Flower from Distorted Dreams seemed to kamakazee throw itself at me!! It all just seemed to be so cute together, I couldn't waste an opportunity like that LOL!!!
