Fancy a Hustle?

It's been a few days since I've really been able to sit down and focus on anything blogging related and for that I now feel totally rubbish... Blogging is a means of release and relaxation for me, and all I can say now is thank goodness it's finally Friday. This week has been a whirlwind of SL drama and RL work being suckish, so much so that I have lost my photo taking and blogging mojo... It's a horrible feeling, and I really hope that tomorrow I can have some me time to just release my pent up emotions through my favourite addiction.
Everything is coming at me from all sides, I feel like someone out there is trying to play with my emotions, like I'm being hustled?!
Maybe I should become the hustler?? Find a hot guy to entertain me and be all coy as I challenge him to a game of pool? It's what Rudh would do!!!
How could anyone say no to her like this? Come on you know you want to play, and she is no good at pool hehe... Never mind the fact that she crossed her fingers behind her back as she said so...
Down at The Velvet Lion Club, Rudh dressed in a cute but bad girl kinda way... Her outfit was one from tres blah called Helena - available now at No.21 - it screams I am cute but rawr... As her hair, in it's innocent style battles the bad girl look that is accessorised by the combat boots, punk collar and cigarettes on her arm.
Dare you to play a game? What do you want to bet on it?

What is she wearing;
Hair: TRUTH - Neema in Reds
Skin: Glam Affair - Luna Skin in Asia
Collar: (Yummy) - Punk Collar in Silver and Black

Crabs on a Beach

I wanted to take a picture of a new dress last night, I wanted somewhere interesting to talk about and I wanted it to fit with the style of dress that I was wearing... I think I found it! 
The LEA Sims are usually some of the most creative and interesting sims in SL - I know that is a bit of a sweeping generalisation and I am sorry for that as there are SO MANY interesting locations yet these places seem to consistently get the attention of landscape photographers - and the one I chose to play on today called "Stranger Things are Happening" was no exception to that rule. 
The location was perfect for the dress, but I had a very sneaking suspicion that I wasn't alone on the beach!!!
The perfect beachy dress though is one from SongBird... I LOVE the floaty, tie-dye patternedness of it, and the colour combinations of the tie-dye are just gorgeous. 
I could have played around in the run all day, I was dressed for it in a mixture of cute girlie and slightly rock chick, yet I had a very strange feeling I wasn't alone... There was someone watching me! I didn't dare turn around hehe... 

What is she wearing;
Hair: TRUTH - Josette in Red 
Skin: Glam Affair - Luna Skin in Asia 
Glasses: REIGN - Coven in Myrtle Glasses 
Collar: MoDANNA - Enlace Collection Leash Collar in Silver & Black 
Dress: SongBird - Ashbury Dress (Available at Tesoro
Pose: Signature Pose - Bootylicious 2

Glamazons at Genre

When I was at university in the UK, one of my close friends was a woman called Jude. She was a mature student, but one that loved to come out dancing with us and boy she could party hard. I have some very fond memories of times we went out, and a recent shopping event brought one in particular right back into my mind. We went to a gay bar for her Birthday - it was a regular haunt for us when she was coming out - and they had a quiz night hosted by the most flamboyant drag queen I've ever seen in the flesh - because I love watching Ru Paul on TV and no one beats Ru Paul LOL...
The reason that I bring this up in a rambling is because fairly recently I was sent a dress from adoness, that was designed for the newest round of Genre and the them of Drag Queens...
Never will you see a round of a shopping event with so much over-the-topness and glitter as this month's round of Genre... The Drag Queen theme has allowed designers to go overboard on both colour and glitteriness and it made me smile! I HAD to dress up in one of the gorgeous outfits - the Glitter Queen Outfits include a dress and hat - from adoness and head out to live like a Queen hehe...
Sinners Burlesque club is the perfect place to do that, it's decadent, and glamouous, the perfect place for a Drag Queen to take up residence...
In fact to play us out today I am going to leave you with something fun and silly, a song from Ru Paul - the ultimate Queen - and one of my favourite dance around the house to clean by songs... Glamazon!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Exile - Cozy Winter Nights in Red
Skin: Glam Affair - Luna Skin in Asia
Necklace: Spellbound - Crystal Choker (Available until January 30th at Wayward Winter)
Outift (Including Hair Accessory): adoness - Glitter Queen in Rainbow (Available until February 10th at GENRE)
Boots: Essenz - Montana in Black (Available until January 31st at The Seasons Story)
Pose: Image Essentials - Playmate 5m

Magical Spells aren't all about Kissing Frogs right?

Fairytales are the stuff of dreams... When they enter into the stuff of reality it comes as something of a shock and so some might say that fairytales are best left as dreams...
Yet I believe that life should be like a fairytale! Rudh is living my fairytale for me... I kissed a frog - OK maybe frog is harsh but he wasn't the best looking avi when I met him! - and HellBone became a prince that whisked me off my feet and dragged me away to a far away land. I live as a Princess, my own living dead doll version of one anyway, and ride with knights on shiny, metallic horses, and yes like fairytale I seem to find myself facing many adversities - of the Drama kind - but I come out stronger with a greater sense of well-being and more magical powers of strength...
I'm going to let you into my little Fairytale world... Hold on tight, things are a little bit of a bumpy ride!
Magic Spells are often a necessity in fairytales, they are the entire reason that good can triumph over evil... Maybe today I will read this HUGE magic book - one from the great and powerful witch [ keke ]  - and see if I can make good things happen... I'll pull on my Sorcery Hat - from Magika - grab a few of these ingredients from nefarious.inventions and perhaps a Frog Prince from that BEETLEBONES store just for good measure. It's worth the risk right? Oh and OOOOOPS better not forget something to mix everything together in, someone grab me that Mortar and Pestle, the nefarious.inventions one please...
Now which spell do I choose?! Today I am feeling better than I have in WEEKS... I faced the Fairytale Darkness and this time at least, I won, so let's have a happy spell now shall we?? Maybe one that brings me lots of money?

What is she wearing;
Hat & Hair: Magika - Sorcery

On Photo Location...

I'm having a lazy Sunday and today my SL is something that feels more like a movie set... I've been a busy bee today working on SO MANY Photos that my SL feels a bit like a movie set - a photo shoot at least - and so I took a few minutes to share my awesome regular outfit before I slipped into something a little more uncomfortable! 
I love these jeans... LOVE LOVE LOVE them... They are made by SPIRIT and are available at this month's round of The Dressing Room, and as well as coming in a set of colours, they also include a skin HUD so that you can re-tone the colour of the skin. Then to go on my top half I chose a very loose open Occult Jacket from ISON and wore a scarf with my Elspeth style from Truth... 
Such a pretty and casual outfit for a Sunday... Right? 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Elspeth (Available until January 31st at The Seasons Story

Changes with the Phoenix

When a Phoenix rises from the ashes, it is always portrayed as a sad but powerfully beautiful moment no matter if it's written in stories or shown in movies - as everyone knows that the only people who really see a phoenix are the fairies and those guys are hard to sit down for a chat about these things... Though a Phoenix often symbolises a rise from a dark place, a time of change and the break through to light... I really hope that I have one of these soon, so I am spending some time hanging out with my Phoenix in SL, hoping that he gives me a boost of good luck energy... 
My Phoenix has been named Hex - yes I know that's a curse but I named him after the store he comes from, Hextraordinary - and he was a gift from a magical fae, that sometimes goes by the name of Maleficent hehe... Right now he is in his full adult state, and it always makes me feel so sad to see him die, but as with any good Phoenix pet I know he will be back... Does that make him like the Terminator? He enjoys a walk along the balustrades of the DRD Film Set Castle, especially when I bring company like my Foxy Neck Snuggler - from Birdy
It doesn't look like it will be long before he dies and is reborn now though, I hope I have some good luck along with that... I hope it wont be too much suffering on both of those things... 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Arden 
Skin: Glam Affair - Luna Skin in Asia (Available until January 23rd at Uber
Pet: .Birdy - Foxy Neck Snuggler in Carrot Dipped

Prop: DRD - Studios Set in Castle 
Bird: HEXtraordinary - Phoenix Companion

The Dead Disneyland

I've been a little stressed and tense lately, and a couple of days ago I found some time to just sit back and create a look and a photo that helped me to relax... There was no pressure, no disturbance from outside forces and no time frame for working on this, I could just sit back relax and let the good music I had in my ears lead me through to create something I was happy with...
The result was something dead LOL... I always seem to find myself making dead things! Seems like my happy place is having Rudh as a Zombie LOL, but this time however I was able to go to the "Happiest Place on Earth" a somewhat Disneyland in my mind... A post-apocalyptic Disneyland... 
I wonder about myself sometimes!! I LOVE the outcome of this photo though, I was so happy with it, and feel pleased to see how far I have come as a photographer in recent months. 
The idea for this photo started with a discovery of DirtyLand... No that's not something rude, it's a store! A really cute store that seems to be based on the artwork of Brian Vivaros (I think, but don't quote me on that) and from the creative minds behind DirtyStories. I went into a crazy buying frenzy when I found the store, I bought lots and lots, but my favourite pieces were the Minnie items... I'm wearing the Crappy Minnie Ears and the current group gift of the Minnie Lollipop, as well as a Face Strap from DirtyLand! As well as a few older nods to the great mouse lady herself, like the necklace from Noodles. OH AND... The skirt was something that I couldn't resist either, I spotted this Jupe Carre from Sorbet on someone's Flickr pages and HAD to have one!!! 
There is one more thing that needs an honourable mention and a close up... Look into my eyes, my left one more than the right one... This is a new release from Psycho.Byts - available at the Wayward Winter Event until January 31st - called Snow Queen. The set of eyes come in various colours, as basic eyes or as Mesh contacts, and although I chose to use the white, the coloured examples are very striking too!!! I'll include a close-up photo below, this may even become my new profile picture because it is just so cute, and advise you to go check out both the Wayward Winter for the eyes and Everwinter, the theme park!! Do it, Do it NOW!

Settling down to Hibernate

Yesterday I had an interview for a RL job in SL. I am now crossing my fingers and will have to wait until tomorrow to hear anything but I will tell you that having an interview for a RL job in SL is the strangest feeling ever!! 
I'm so bad in interviews, I can rehearse what I want to say over and over again and I always become like a deer in the headlights. I thought it might be easier when I was hiding behind Rudh but apparently not... If anything it was harder! I had too much choice in what to wear and I was still like a deer in the headlights when I sat in front of them... 
In RL though, behind the computer screen I was in my PJs!!! Best Interview Outfit EVER!!
This is what Rudh may have looked like in the same situation... I of course was a little more nervous than this and was actually shaking hehe... If only I could be as cool and collected as Rudh I would be a happy bunny - or should that be giraffe?! 
I love these giraffe PJs from Sweet Thing - I have LOTS of spares as they were gacha items and I am giving them away so if you want one please ask! - but you know what gachas are like you want one particular one and get everything but the one you want! 
The huge armchair is one from brocante, which is available at the latest round of LTD until January 26th - and these come in a variety of colours with or without cushions... They make the perfect spot to lay back, with a huge bowl of winter warming Stew - this yummy looking stew is available from the Lost Junction kitchen at the new Wayward Winter event - and snuggle down for a long winter hibernation... I wish people could hibernate?! Animals can, we're silly not too LOL... 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Phoenix - Emelie Hair in Reds

Yo-Ho, Yo-Ho, a Pirate's Life for Me

Yo-Ho, Yo-Ho, a Pirates life for me!!
When I was younger and wasn't dreaming of being a princess, I wanted to be a Pirate. This was made worse, in later years, by the Pirates of the Caribbean - let's face it who could resist Johnny Depp dressed like that, I'd have done whatever he told me -  and then when I got my first out of school job as a living historian, I was considering it could become a reality as I wanted to specialise in historical costume! That all changed when I met HellBone and had to find work in a country I didn't speak the language of, BUT the idea of being a pirate still lingers in my brain, and luckily for me in SL I can be just that... 
There are some amazing pirate costumes available in SL but when I saw this one I wanted it... Unfortunately it was a gacha and so I let it be at the time of release, I wasn't sure I wanted to play to win a set, then I found a full set in this pretty sky blue colour and knew that was the perfect colour for Pirate Captain Rudhmellowen Laguna... The complete outfit is an Alchemy original, and it comes in various colours with other things added to the rare versions - this is not one of the rares by the way - but even the non-rare colour sets have hats and eye patches to match the amazing coats.
Then to complete the look I remembered that buried deep in my hoard was a nod to the Pirates of the Caribbean - and therefore to that sexy Captain Sparrow - in the form of the BAMSE Cursed Necklace.
I was ready for adventure... Now any self-respecting wannabe pirate captain knows that there is only one place for Pirates and that would be Tortuga... SL has it's own version of this place, a land called BLACKSPOT Shipyard.. Here you can commandeer a ship, you can drown your sorrows and perhaps even bury your treasure! It's well worth checking out, and who knows you could even become part of my crew hehe... 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Magika - Friday
Skin: Glam Affair - Luna Skin in Asia (Available until January 23rd at Uber)
Necklace: BAMSE - Cursed Necklace in Rusty
Outfit, Eye Patch & Hat: Alchemy - Pirate Wench Gacha Items in Sky
Boots: HOLLYHOOD - Baraka Boots in Brown
Pose: Signature Pose - Aria 1

Forgot my Key... Ugh!

After all that partying there is only one thing that this girl needs to make herself feel better even more... SHOPPING!!! Even the least girliest of girls, that claim they don't like it, will I am sure find times when shopping is fun. I love bargains, sales make me happy as a cloud and don't even get me started about how much I enjoy rummaging through second hand sales, but when it all comes down to it, if I really need a shopping trip I will always go in SL as it's cheaper to splurge here than in RL hehe...
A shopping spree won't fix everything, but it will help bring a bit of a spring in my step, even if it is just for a while and right now a while would help! Though perhaps spring in my step isn't the right thing to say, especially after wandering around the stores in some huge heels - the soles of my feet would be too sore to spring from LOL...
Unfortunately when I went shopping, I was in such an excited daze that I grabbed my bag - yes it's a SLainsbury's Bag because I am that classy - and ran out the house, forgetting that my keys were also a necessity. So once I was done shopping, I had to sit in the sun on the stoop outside the house and wait for HellBone to get home! As this is just a re-enactment of that moment I will share with you that the pose prop I am using is one from Image Essentials - it comes without the shopping bags, you need to collect your own for display - and it is available until January 24th at Project Limited.
Just don't forget your keys, or an umbrella, ya know just in case you're sitting here in the rain hehe...

Parties need Sparkles and Flowers

Another Monday can only mean one thing... It's a back to work day! By now you might have guessed that I am not overly happy in my job anymore, in fact I will let you all know that my job is a major reason as to why I am so depressed at the moment... I've spent enough time crying though, so today I am going to try to think of other things, nicer things, like having a party with you... That sounds like a fun idea right?!
Let's have a little party, something magical, something pretty, something to make me smile on a day when I feel like I'm stuck in Hell! We need some yummy food and lots of pretty decór...
OK, OK I went a little overboard with food and decór but like I said, stuck in Hell, I need something to make me feel happier... This makes me feel marginally happier... Now if I could only have it in RL please?!
Let's start by talking about the pretty things and then move onto the yummy things... To decorate I wanted flowers and sparkles... My invited guests dressed in their finest flower costumes - yes the guests were bears from Boogers - and brought me a bunch of beautiful Apple Fall roses, but it was the Balloons that drew most of my attention! I'd seen these on blogs and at Collabor88, but when I pulled out the pastel Fairylight Balloons from Half-Deer I was in love... Sparkles and prettiness, what is there not to love about these balloons?! I might have to go back for more in different colours!
I went a little bit bonkers on the catering side of things, especially since my guests don't seem to want to eat that much. Three different things to drink - milk, coffee and an awesomely zingy lemonade that I had specially selected from tres blah - and lots of bad for me things to eat too!
Everything was ready, except for me, so I slipped into a very pretty kitty dress, a Tied Cocoon Dress in yellow, from {sallie} and was ready to play the perfect hostess.
I now just need to hope that my day goes as well as my party planning skills... Or someone is going to be getting to see the angry monster side of this pretty party planner...

Feeling Alone...

Sometimes I get the feeling that I am totally alone, even when I am constantly surrounded by people... I'm feeling like that at the moment and it's because of some situations in RL that I don't feel strong enough to handle.
I don't want to pour my heart out too much, it's just RL drama that no one needs to hear about, but I need something good to happen, I need to feel that I am strong and I'd really like to know that I'm worth something... Sorry to sound melodramatic, it's something that I am working my way through and I'm sure I will get over this but the bumps in the road seem pretty big right now, so I may need a monster truck to get over them... 
As always though my mood definitely seems to be apparent in the pictures that I am taking... 
I never intended to take such a dark and lonely shot, it was pretty and light and airy in the house that's owned by one of my favouritest people and their partner... I went there because no one could find me though, so I suppose it does reflect my mood!
Basically I wanted to do some simple, down-to-earth and without too much thought into my emotions style blogging... I have these amazing chairs from Consignment, called the Cave Tub Chairs - available until February 6th at Collabor88 - and found the perfect spot at my friends house to show one off... The only other thing I did was set out a bucket of candles to provide me a little light and make the place feel warmer! 
I think I might curl up here and take a nap, it seems dark and cosy, and perhaps that will help me feel better... It's going to be a lazy Sunday that much is for sure!!

Rudh the Queen of Monsterland

Wonderland might have the Queen of Hearts, but there is a far darker place in the deep recesses of my mind... Monsterland! Rudh the Queen of Monsterland makes the Queen of Hearts look like a Disney Princess... She smiles as she watches the torture that her many minions can inflict on the White Monarchy, laughing as they are turned blood red to match her own kingdom. 
Well actually, it isn't just in my mind if the minds of a particular design duo are anything to go by, but can you tell I had a LOT of fun with this, and I even managed to get HellBone involved with me hehe... Perfect as we needed a new couple photo hehe... 
I've always been addicted to Wonderland, and as I've grown up that pretty Disneyfied version has also modified into a darker place, though when I saw the items created by a dream design duo of CURELESS [+] and nefarious.inventions - that you can get your hands on at The Epiphany until February 2nd - I felt like they'd reached into my brain and pulled things into the SL world from it!!! I AM TOTALLY AND UTTERLY IN LOVE WITH THIS COLLECTION!!! I squeaked with excitement when I saw it, but as soon as I could get into the crazy busy Epiphany Event, this was the booth I headed for! I got myself a FULL SET - although the crown is missing from the photo - and even managed to have enough points for the exclusive Chess Board! 
Would you like to visit my Wonderland?! I'm sure you will find it very welcoming, or perhaps you will find yourself like Alice?! Without a head!

Make-Up and Hairstyling for a Princess

I'm still playing dress-up, though this time it might be less easy to see that hehe... This time I am thinking more of a princess than anything evil, but I am a princess that likes to take her time to get ready for her day's adventures. As in RL, this morning I can take my time waking up, drink some coffee at a leisurely pace and get myself all dolled up... 
I found a very pretty dress and although it wasn't my usual taste in things, I simply couldn't resist - hence why today I am a pretty princess hehe... It's also given me the chance to show you one of my favourite bits of my bedroom... 
The area in question is actually my vanity station, my make-up magic bench as I call the one I have in RL - not that I ever tend to wear a lot of make up in RL, I'm a bit too forgetful! Yet this vanity table is actually something that HellBone found for me and that I love. It's a HIDEKI Directors Chair, that has 4 different poses within and that I have thrown tons of adorable Make-Up themed products all over including brushes, creams, and lip balms... There are a few things for styling my many wigs, bright colours for my nails and even a friend to practice the look on - thank you BOOGERS hehe... 
Everything I need to transform myself into whatever it is that I want to be today... 
Right now I need pretty, I need sparkles, I need PRINCESS... 
The dress and shoes were what brought the look into the forefront of my mind, as it's not a pretty look I'd normally go for... I found the dress at the latest round of The Chapter Four from GizzA. It's called the Ribboned Ruffle Dress and it comes in a range of colours, normally I'd have gone for something dark but this smoky colour was just too gorgeous to pass up, and when I spotted the blue ribbon - that comes in the HUD provided - I had to wear these amazing ChicChica Princess shoes with it! It was a match made in Princess Heaven hehe... 
LOL my look of the day is Princess... If only I could get myself into a Disney Princess Happy mood feeling then I'd be great!

I did not make the Statues Bleed!

Yesterday I had another emotional breakdown, and the monsters within were allowed to rear their ugly heads - not sure if I can get away with calling my demons ugly but it's out there now and I'm not able to take it back - but as a result my photos tend to look darker. Not sure if that is a bad thing, I think I prefer my darker and more creative side... It's that side of me that creates the most interesting images I feel, and today I let my mind run wild with a series of three stone cold beauties in tow...
The demons in me attacked these stone beauties and stole them to the dark recesses of my mind... Drawing just a little blood... I swear it was only a little! Look at my face, how could someone this sweet and innocent looking cause too much blood hehe... Look at how delicately I am gagged with that pretty flower - from Cureless [+] at ROMP - I was good I didn't crush it!!!
The ladies are actually a statue from Paper Moon. Paper Moon has been pretty quiet as of late due to the owner's RL, BUT she's back - ish - and has decided to hold a storewide sale - gachas excluded - with EVERYTHING being 50% off! The sale ends on January 15th, so get your little shoppaholic butts down there, or my demons will be coming after you, and I will be bringing my stony friends too!
One more thing that I want to show you, as I've done before, I felt it's right to break down the layers of my facial decor hehe... I used various layers to build up the look above... Starting with my basic face wound that I am rarely without from antielle, and adding a Scarred Face Tattoo from Corvus before as a finishing touch to the eyes I added an old but still favourite [mock] Zombie Makeover look!
So what's it gonna be?? A trip to the Paper Moon sale, or a visit from me and my stony friends?!

Rest before a ROMP

Have you ever wanted to truly let yourself go? Embrace something that is different from your normal? Reveal your darker side and let a secret passion take hold?
I'm sure you may have at some point, and I'm sure that you' may have let your wildest imaginings run free in SL. Inhibitions are much less apparent in the virtual world, and sex seems to be abundant - something that can cause unwarrented disaproval from outsiders, I might add. Yet as a personal belief I feel that having a safe environment - I know that there are exceptions to this as there have been cases of cyber stalking and other horrors, but you can log off and block people if you feel uncomfortable within situations... Nothing in SL is beyond your control, Not really!
I've always been - although it took SL to make me aware of it - fairly submissive... I've tried to flip the switch, and act dominant but it never works for me and I end up giggling at myself... The submissive side of me has been squashed away somewhat - HellBone has no interest in control - but every now and then she surfaces... Something awakens her inner cravings...
This time it was ROMP...
ROMP is the best kinky shopping event in SL - I think - and every time it rolls out the submissive side of me jumps for joy... There are so many pretty new things to play with, and so many fun new toys to tease the senses... Shame I have no one to play with though LOL...
Still, this month's event was no different, and OH MY GOSH some of the designers have pulled out all of the stops to make some beautiful things... Things like this Capturado Collection from Artisan Fantasy. The full set includes three different coloured wall mattresses, a toy shelf as well as individual toys on hooks, floor and ceiling mounts and a lattice wall mount all with this amazing scrollwork design... It's simply gorgeous! I fell for the textures and the feminine curls wrought from masculine iron!!
Whilst at ROMP, and as my inner submissive was already on the outside for a while, I had to do a little more shopping hehe... I had a hard time choosing between colours of Dead Dollz lingerie - opting for black as it's easiest and goes with everything - and then treating myself to some Kitten Hair from Spellbound. The one thing missing was the perfect collar for a kitten, but The Horror sorted that problem out for me too!! It was amazing how everything fell together hehe...
The little submissive girl left to wait, rests her eyes tuning her hearing into the sound of her Master's approach... Lit through the grate as the door opens... The fun is about to begin!
