wouldn’t you like to see something strange?

happy halloween! ahh, my favorite holiday of the year! \o/ i’ve been listening to these two songs all day, pretty much on repeat. *dances like the zombies* and i seriously need to watch hocus pocus at least once before tonight is over..

anyway~ x3

bff vivi && i were definitely in the spirit of halloween today, so i’ve got *two* sets of looks to show off to you. one set of more.. costumed looks, and one set of something casual. but both are awesome, so let us begin!

while not exactly.. halloween, vivi && i sorta took to “día de los muertos” inspired looks.. which is around halloween but definitely not the same holiday. still, i’d seriously rock the sugar skull look for halloween if i was more talented in the ways of costume makeup irl, but i can do it in sl so easily! 8D

vivienne went with a skin from pink fuel that was out last year, that is just as awesome now as it was back then. the detail on the face is gorgeous && as always, has the lovely skintone and shading and quality that we both love pf for.

but we still halloween’d it up && did more stylized, costume looks rather than trying to go for authentic day of the dead attire.

my skin still has that skull feel, but is from nuuna’s instead && ohhh boy. can you see how amazing it is? i hope you can, because it is. and you can see the contrast between my skin && vivi’s, black and white and then colorful, and how both still work for the looks we’re going for. vivi is more.. sylvia ji, while i went darker and more “typically” halloween.

we’re both wearing goodies from sakide, too! vivi’s blood-stained dress && my corset and lace top are both from sakide. and if you *still* need something to wear to a halloween get together in sl, sakide is seriously the first stop you should make. there is an entire shack outside the main store that’s full of new halloween-y stuffs, including both vivi’s dress && the outfit that includes my corset, as well as mini dresses.. jeans… tattoos… even full witch costumes that are ridiculously adorable.

anddd.. the second looks!

not only is it a holiday, but it’s *also* been quite a while since bff vivi posed with me for blog pictures. and even though her outfit doesn’t exactly scream halloween.. it was far too cute not to photograph. and! it worked quite well for the halloween-inspired poses we’re using. so it’s win-win. :3

her top is from blah and going into that store is like going into cute overload. *so* many cute designs on tees and accessories, it was enough to put me into sugar shock without the aid of a pillowcase full of candy. xP and my top, in a very appropriate shade of orange, is from epic.. one of my all-time faves for clothes && for fantasy bits and bobs.

but the poses are the real stars.. the knife pose, which cracked us both up the first time we hopped on the pose balls, is out @ ploom (i think for project themeory? so hurry if you want it!) and the standing pose is from magnifique which is actually made for a good vs bad.. angelic and devilish costumed look. both amusing for halloween-ish photoshoots and, as evidenced by the second photo up there, for non-halloween related pics too~

sooo! i hope y’all have a supremely creepy halloween! watch scary movies && wolf down the candy, ’cause i know that’s *exactly* what i’ll be doing this evening..

the seasons hunt is back && i was *so* excited to start scoopin’ up the goodies. the summer edition was amazing, so i had no doubts that the round for autumn would be just as great.

believe me, i was not disappointed! 😀

there are a ton of stores to go through, but each one is seriously worth it. and quite a few of my favorites are included in the hunt \o/ which makes me a happy, happy girl~

almost my *entire* outfit is from the hunt, which means if you’re on a tight budget but still need to add some high-quality fall pieces to your sl-wardrobe… this hunt is perfect. and to make it even better? it’s not insanely hard, i wasn’t stuck at any point during the hunt without finding the prize!

my autumn-in-a-garment sweater is from nudolu && is in such gorgeous shades of orange, red, gold and brown. it literally looks like fall foliage and for a freebie is incredibly nice. aaaaand it matches surprisingly well with the snuggly warm boots i picked up from mocha, which is always win.

the jeans i’m wearin’ from eleanor rigby, which are actually part of a *full* outfit, are just how i like ’em — low-rise (without being too low-rise.. if you know what i mean ;)) && ripped to shreds! i can always use more jeans, they are a staple in my second life as well as in my first life. and the fact that they are unique with the pattern across the waistband && knees makes them different than *just* another pair of jeans.

my hair && hat combo is probably one of my faves from this hunt — you get a mini-fatpack of this style from fri.day and it is so so adorable. i love it even more because it includes my preferred shade of light blonde ❤ but really, a freebie from fri.day is awesome no matter what it is.

and since it matched my sweater (and boots!) so well, i decided to wear the hunt prize from concrete flowers too, which is the acorn-charm necklace i’ve got on. the gorgeous, golden eyes are the prize from insufferable dastard and come in a *four pack* of pretty autumn shades. wooooo! and since i’m a total *derp* && forgot to wear it in my post for the zombie popcorn hunt, the tattoo i’m wearing is also free from para designs currently.

almost making yourself completely over, just with freebies, makes my inner frugal fashionista squeal with glee. not only can you mix && match your way to a new outfit with the hunt prizes, but they are honestly nice enough to work into your regular wardrobe. score~

so! first things first. :3

i’ve decided that in order to keep my sanity, ’cause i’ve been reeeeeally busy irl lately.. instead of trying to blog everyday (which never happens anyway), i’m reducing my posts to 2-3 a week. still enough to *quell* the need to blog, but not so many that i drive myself fuckin’ crazy trying to juggle everything else on top of taking a few hours out to photograph && blog.

sound good? i hope so~!

but now, onto the post!

the zombie popcorn hunt started up again over the weekend && is a hunt i so look forward to. lots of horror, lots of zombies, lots of blood && gore.. but balanced with nice, non-zombiefied separates and accessories, all of which are *free*! \o/

so i’ve put together three looks for today, all usin’ goodies from the hunt, and will mark off the items i’m wearing that are hunt prizes.. as usual. if you need a list of stores, item previews && hints, you can find that here aaaaaand good luck hunting!

so it’s been two weeks && i am all.. refreshed and rejuvenated. true, my break was a li’l longer than anticipated, but! it was just was i needed. i’m excited to get back to blogging && photographing.. and i have a *lot* of awesome shit to catch up on.

like for instance…

new stuffies from hod && nuuna~

it makes me *so* giddy when two amazing designers collab on something. it always turns out that much more awesome in the end. and the piercing sets i’m wearing are just that. \o/ aydan darcy took care of the piercings, while nuuna nitely made coordinating facial makeup tatts and oh. my. god.

nuuna’s skins and makeups are quickly becoming some of my faves.. they are unique && always beautifully flawless. some of the looks i’m most proud of from the past (*cough cough*) have centered around her skins and they totally make everything else i’ve worn along with them *pop*. her gothic && pale skins are my personal favorites, but i guess what would be considered as her “normal” skins (though, tbh, what’s “normal” is all subjective — perhaps it’s better said that i mean her more natural skintones?) are just as lovely.

but while all three skins i’m wearing are nuuna’s — two of which are freebies(!) — i’ll give you a better look at the new piercings from hod

click to see it larger @ flickr!

the one on the left is om shanti, the one in the middle is silentium, && the one on the right is cathaldus. and honest to god, i don’t think i could pick one that stands out to me from these three. all of them are perfection and i really, really like the new *colorful* textures aydan’s done. ❤❤

as i said, they all include coordinating facial tatts.. and i’m wearing two of the complete sets. the pictures above where i’m wearing the silentium && cathaldus piercing sets also show off the matching makeups, but the makeup for om shanti is just as awesome. you’ll have to go sneak a peek @ hod if you’d like to see what that entire set looks like. 😉

plus! did i mention two of the skins i’m wearing are *freebies*?! i think i did, but it totes deserves a second mention. the skins i’ve got in with both of the shorter hairstyles (which btw, the shortest one from elikatira was only 88L @ collabor88… omgahhh) were freebies from nuuna’s. the spider choker i’m wearing? also a freebie, thanks to the subscribo @ g field — which is just a *part* of a larger halloween-themed gift. aaaaaaand my delightfully creepy eyes were a vip group gift from insufferable dastard.. which is seriously worth the joining fee for how generous && for how often gifts are sent out. i’ve worn ID eyes almost exclusively since i discovered the brand && i’ve not been disappointed since.. either with a gift *or* with a purchase. if you’re needing some zombie-like eyes, which.. c’mon.. who doesn’t need zombie eyes in their slife, these are a really awesome pair to snag from the group.

get the look yourself:
skins; nuuna’s halloween skin (freebie), skins expo freebie (..freebie xD) && fever
curly hair; truth tess in crow
short hair; elikatira @ collabor88 shine in black 04
long hair; lamb @ collabor88 heart in ink
tattoo; para designs creeper
eyes; insufferable dastard tortured in white (group gift)
lashes; onyx wear feather black lashes
horns; illusions sibirica horns

so. this is my 200th post (but it totes doesn’t count!). and while i’m not back yet, i will be…. *drum roll* tomorrow, the 15th.


i’ve taken a little longer than a week’s break, ahah, but i think i needed it. ’cause i’m ready && excited and have a *ton* of awesome goodies to blog.
