dark side

welcome to my dark side…

10.21.2012

…as if you’ve not seen it already. ;P

there’s *new* stuffs from some of my favorite brands && all of it is so perfect for halloween. or, y’know, everyday-wear if you’re me.

the skull-face tattoo && the multi-ring ear piercing i’m wearing above are new as a collab by nuuna’s and haus of darcy… and i cannot tell you how hard i fell for both. the piercing is partially mesh — the long spiked piece in my earlobe is mesh and awesome — and includes the facial tattoo in varying degrees of opacity for both men and women.

it’s available @ the fair event, the collection just rolled over to some really great new goodies, and if you’re anything like me.. you *need* this set. it is to die for (haw, no pun intended).

now, the skin i’m wearing underneath nuuna’s beautiful skull-face…

10.21.2012

…is just one of *many* released from glam affair. this appropriately named dark side collection features some beautiful makeups on a range of skins from dark and mysterious to light and haunting. and they are absolutely gorgeous.

10.21.2012

there’s two of glam affair’s most recent faces here — both ginny and roza. and each one is stunning. i could not pick a favorite out of these, each one is uniquely different. i love the full, dark red lips on one of the super pale skins, i love the stitched mouth on the darker gray skin, i love the two with bright pink blush dusted across the cheeks and eyes…

10.21.2012

these are wonderful for halloween looks (which you already know i’m a fan of!), but could just as easily work for a fantasy avatar.. or something decidedly goth. these sorts of skins are a big part of the reason why i’m such a fan of glam affair — aida ewing does soft and pretty so well, but also indulges the opposite side of the spectrum quite often. i adore the skins.

and when these skins are paired with aydan darcy‘s wonderful piercings && nuuna nitely‘s amazing makeup… it is a trifecta of fan-fucking-tastic.

hat

i have a hat.

10.03.2012

and it is awesome. :3

the newest releases from burley included this amazingly wavy hat-and-hair combo && i immediately fell in slooooooooove. the brushed-over bangs and this hat are just ridiculous amounts of awesome and i pretty much had to have it the moment i saw it.

so i put together an *urban casual* sort of look, befitting of my new hat~

10.03.2012

i’m even wearing *two* freebies with this look — one of which, the glasses, i snagged @ swag fest from epic. i love a good pair of glasses && these oversized frames were not only *1L*, but they’re also infinitely color-change. i liked the way the dark gray checks here matched with my sweater (by erratic, which is out for the new round of fameshed!), but i just as easily could’ve gone with red or yellow or piiink… a fully customizable cheapie like this is awesome!

the necklace i’m wearing is also a freebie — a group gift from the jewellery exchange. i spied this li’l panda around tesh’s neck on the free*style blog && immediately went to snag him. this panda is *adorable* and for a gift is very nicely made. and did i mention the group is free to join, too? and that there’s a few other gifts there for the taking? 😉

and, okay, i know they’re not freebies.. but these spiked boots from slink *need* a mention here. i love them. i want to lick siddean munro for making them. the detail on these is *fantastic* and i adore every last one of those spikes dotting the boot. grabbing these in black was a no-brainer but the other colors are just as hot, too… especially in deep pink. they are wonderful and are so worth demoing, i guarantee you’ll grab a pair too just like i did~

kitty

when the collection @ the dressing room rolled over && new stuffs appeared, i knew i *had* to have this headband from la gyo

08.29.2012

not want, but neeeeeeeeeed. how cute, right?! jewels + kitty cat ears = so adorable, vixxie can’t even stand it. this band has been glued to my head for the last few days and i just could not wait to put together a look so i could blog them.

needless to say, i highly recommend you go grab these while they’re out and discounted!

08.29.2012

so i grabbed a cute pink sweater from mon tissu, a pair of the *new* mesh trousers from coldlogic (that are on sale, along with the rest of the store — but today is the *last day*!), and a bubblegum prop from pink fuel that i’ve been wanting forever and finally had an excuse to buy.. and put together a cute, casual outfit to match my new cat ears. i am seriously in love with this headband, but the rest of my look is pretty cute too i must say. ;p

and of course, the backdrop for my pics today is just as cute — after seeing juicy cafe on juicybomb, i knew i eventually had to visit to snap some photos. the build is delightfully cluttered && a wonderful setting for photographs, definitely take a tp there if you’ve not visited~

ohay! long time, no bloggity, hmm?

yeah, it’s been a really long while since i last posted… things just got *way* hectic for me in my rl. shit happens from time to time && i am def not immune to it. buuuuu~uuut, i did have some time this week to catch up on things in sl, so i thought i’d finally get off my lazy ass and put together a blog post!

and it’s not just me in this post, oh no. i’ve got two looks for you from myself and one of those includes bff vivi.. i thought it was a fitting way to maybe get back into the swing of blogging~

first…

06.05.2012

..a look i put together long before i took my hiatus. this makes me a very, very bad blogger && for that i apologize! i uploaded the pics of this look to flickr months and months ago… and then never put a post together for it. so here it is, finally!

06.05.2012

polar bear hoodie, shark tee, and some bright hot pink. do you love it as much as i do? ’cause i gotta say, i love this look lots. i grabbed the tee from retro when i discovered them on a hunt aaaages ago. these tees were cute (each one was a different color w/ different animal motifs) and nicely textured… and sometimes i just cannot resist the cute. yes, this shark is cute.. don’t try to tell him otherwise~

the hood is mesh && i grabbed it from nacon’s on the marketplace. while i don’t recommend wearing a fuzzy hood and scarf in the middle of summer, it’s sl.. so i can do what i want! ;P it worked for the cutesy sort of look i was goin’ for and, as i said.. cannot resist the cute sometimes. i like the dark, grungy, and evil just as much as the next girl but there’s that part of me the just cannot say no to something with teddy bear ears. don’t judge me.

and for a more “recent” look, i dragged bff vivi in with me to pose..

08.11.2012

you never really know how much you miss out on when you’re away from sl. sure, i knew designers and sales and events would be goin’ on without me.. but i didn’t realize just how much there would be for me to catch up on! @_@ it was only a couple of months && i feel like i’ve missed out on yeeeeeears of awesome goodies.

so she ‘n’ i hit up a few of our favorite stores, browsed several of the events going on, and tried our best not to be overwhelmed.

08.11.2012

vivi built her cute && casual look all around this mesh tee she picked up @ collabor88, from tres blah. it’s perfectly tucked into her jeans and looks like a slouchy v-neck she’d steal from her boyfriend (if he let her into his closet, that is..). she looks comfy and yet still put together~

she’s also wearing a pair of flared jeans from maitreya, some fiiierce leopard heels (that were a freebie group gift!) from n-core, and a super cute owl necklace that’s also from collabor88 by maxi gossamer~

08.11.2012

my look also centers around somethin’ i grabbed at collabor88, this time from auxiliary. this sugar skull design won me over completely, but all of the designs were awesome enough to pick up.. especially at the nicely discounted price of a mere 88L.

i paired the tank with some mesh shorts i picked up from mon tissu && a pair of gorgeous sandals from celoe — both of which are in nice, neutral shades. the shorts have a subtle pinstripe, making them more visually interesting than a simple pair of white denim shorts, and the shoes….. oh there are no words for these shoes other than love. the textures are realistic and delicious, tinting was a breeze && i instantly fell in love with this taupe shade. if only i had a pair of these irl, siiigh~

plus! the prop && poses vivi and i are using here, from glitterati, are on *sale* right now. everything is discounted to 100L and i went ‘n scooped up a whole bunch of things i’ve had my eye on, this prop included. i’m always on the lookout for new props and new poses, especially ones that are unique, and i’ve always liked this hallway prop. i’m glad i was able to grab it for an amazing deal!

sooo, three looks… and *maybe* a return to blogging for vixxie? we’ll have to see how rl treats me, but i’m hoping i’ll be able to get back into it! i miss my blog (and i miss those of you that read it ❤ honestly!) and i hate feeling like i’m out of the loop. so much new stuff to grab! @___@

to battle

two sharp swords, a gun in a holster, deadly claws && bright pink hair..

04.20.2012

i’d say i’m ready for battle, what say you? 😉

skimpy outfit *probably* wouldn’t do me much good in a fight, to be fair.. weapons or no weapons. unless all my jiggly bits would maybe help distract my foes. /me strokes her chin……

luckily, sl wars are few && far between for me, so all i have to do is look fierce. i don’t have to actually be fierce. and knowing just how “intimidating” i can be, when in battle.. i’d probably end up throwing my gun at someone rather than shooting it && running in the opposite direction ala jack sparrow.

but enough about that!

04.20.2012

both of my weapons are courtesy of a full outfit i grabbed from random inspiration, after seeing it modeled here by the beautiful nuuna nitely. i *instantly* wanted it because of the boots (they look like black versions of long fall boots!!!), but found lots of the included accessories rather useful in other looks.

so with my weaponry, i decided to be a sexy sort of “battle-ready” by wearing a dress && a pair of latex leggings both from sakide. the dress is out @ private room, while the leggings are part of an outfit set out @ perfect wardrobe — and both are nicely discounted!

a new mesh hair from burley in a *delicious* hot pink, some of my favorite face-makeup tattoos from the very same nuuna who pretty much inspired this entirely ❤, and a few (or, okay, more than a few) piercings from hod completed my look… while the eerily wonderful ambiance of the chouchou sim seemed a fitting backdrop.

i’m not exactly what one might call a seasoned fighter, but pretending like i am can be funtimes! and would you really argue with me about my (lack of) battle prowess, considering how *big* those knives are? …i think not.

first of all! i’m back on plurk! if you haven’t added me you reeeeeeeeally should. i always need more friends! ^^

but aaaaaaanyhoozles, onto more important things. a look for today!

click to see it larger @ flickr!

taking an idea of one of my favorite fashionistas, i’m wearing the dress by house of fox out @ the dressing room blue as just a skirt rather than a full-on sequin dress… && paired it with the *new* mesh cardigan by pumpkin and a freebie tee from onyx wear. just a hint of glitz in an otherwise sorta urban-casual look works pretty well… in my humble opinion. 😉

i am *so* late when it comes to hair from burley, but this style i’m wearing here is just gorgeous. i’ve seen it all over the feeds && in world and resisted the urge to go demo, just because i need more hair like i need more skins or more tattoos (read: i don’t, lolol) but i finally gave in. and i love it. i’m wearing the shorter version here, but there’s one that’s so much longer and full of glorious waves. it’s incredibly well-made, i really am sad i’ve not taken advantage of this brand sooner~

and i’ve got some good ole staples from my inventory on with this look… things i always seem to fall back on. finger tapes from sini style, platform boots from the abyss, horns from illusions && gartered socks from league. i’ve probably featured them 3249347 times here on my blog over the time i’ve had it, and definitely worn them in world more times than i can even count, but nice accessories never go out of style no matter how long you’ve had them! ❤❤
