witch

it’s getting *clooooooser*! only *two* more days until halloween.. are you excited as i am!?

the costume look i’ve got for today is another one for halloween on a budget. i already did one costume on the cheap && today, i’ve got a second one~

10.29.2012

i know it’s already made rounds on the feeds, but i could *not* resist blogging this dress from g field myself. it’s *free* and so adorable.. and perfectly halloween. and i immediately saw it as a very appropriate dress for a witch to wear.

so i added in some more free accessories.. like the orange ‘n’ black nails + bracelet combo i’m wearing here is a *group gift* for candy nail group members. you know i love my prim nails && the gifts from candy nail are always lovely, so i was excited to see these out for the taking. the set comes with a pair of earrings as well, which i’m not wearing here, but it all works well for adding in some extra halloween colors into a look.

10.29.2012

the li’l one-tooth’d pumpkin i’m hugging above, as well as the bats i had swirling all around me (which look *amazing* but are so hard to photograph! but they’re there, i promise! eh heh) are both vip group gifts from epic. if you’re in need of some more halloween goodies, the epic group is *so* worth the price of admission. jade winthorpe is always generous to her groupies && there are lots of halloween-themed gifts for group members… currently, there’s a pumpkin backpack, the pumpkin i’m hugging here, the animated bats (which you’ll just have to go and grab to see for yourself, my pics don’t really do ’em justice), a mesh dress in three different designs and a pair of faun hooves that are *all* free to group members.

the spider pendant necklace i’ve got on is a *dollarbie* from kosh.. the hat i’m wearing is part of a set that comes in several different colors that’s out @ sakide, which gives you a *lot* of bang for your buck (the set includes the hat, a dress, boots, and gloves!)… and even the pumpkin-holding poses i used here from magnifique are cute, inexpensive and include all the pumpkins you’d ever need for posing *or* rezzing around for decorations.

so now there’s no excuse! with so many freebies && cheapies on the grid for halloween, you seriously have to dress up with me! >3

you ever get that feeling like… someone’s watching you?

10.27.2012

yeah, me neither. *shrugs* wonder where that feeling comes from anyway…

so! today, i’ve got a.. pretty lady lost in the woods kind of costume look. this gorgeous dress from sakide, which is out @ the cinema event, inspired the look i put together for today. i was thinking of a dark, windy night…. a bright, full moon overhead… and creepy, ominous surroundings with only a single handheld lantern to light the way. i think i achieved that, what say you?

10.27.2012

instead of a forest, i used one of my favorite spots for photography && headed over to innsmouth, which ended up being the *perfect* spot. the fog, the dilapidated buildings, and the fact that i was totally *alone* worked for the kind of mood i was trying to set. it looks spooky and wonderful and absolutely fitting.

it’s just a shame i was all by myself… i mean, *completely* by myself… because on a night like that, having someone else there to keep me company would’ve been a big relief.. y’know, to keep the boogeyman from coming to get me. if you even believe in that kinda stuff.

when i was younger, i was obsessed with batman. legit obsessed. the batman animated series was smack dab in the middle of my childhood — i’d watch it *every. single. day.* after school. and my obsession with batman all started with a little movie called batman returns. i’m really dating myself here, but i remember when that movie came out… and i remember being totally fascinated by it.

as i’ve grown older, i still love me some batman (for evidence, see see right here) and i’ve also come to love all things tim burton… and the two original batman movies *still* rank pretty damn high on my list of favorites. michael keaton will forever be batman to me. but my favorite character, hands down, in all of batman-verse…

10.24.2012

…is catwoman.

michelle pfeiffer’s catwoman was *it* for me. she is catwoman… anne hathaway who? i mean, i know selena kyle was originally a brunette, but to me? she’ll always be a crazy feline-obsessed *blonde* bombshell who looks amazing in skin-tight leather. so of course, she was perfect for me to cosplay! ;D

10.24.2012

my own version of catwoman all started after my trip to the cinema event… where i spied this mask ‘n’ hair combo by mina && immediately snagged it. i saw it, i had to have it, and i was instantly thinking of ways to dress myself up as selena kyle.

so i needed a catsuit. ..obviously. xD and while i own several in varying leather && latex textures, this one from slink was absolutely perfect. while it lacks the homemade stitching that michelle pfeiffer’s costume had in the movie, it more than makes up for it by being *so* fucking sexy. the super low neckline, zipper, and extra shiny latex made it fit what i needed.

but of course… what batman villain is complete without her accessories? i grabbed an outfit from graves (appropriately called the cat) that came with all the necessary bits && bobs — including a mounted whip on the hip, lots of attached pockets, gloves and the li’l kitty collar i’m wearing.

i had to add a teensy bit of *me* back into the costume, so a few piercings from hod (including the feather in my mouth — i thought it was appropriate for a cat, yes?), some claws from candy nail, and a pair of the *hottest* thigh-high boots i’ve seen in a while, by jaimie earst complete the look.

it’s not an exact cosplay, but it’s about as close as i can get! i’m sure no one will complain about my accuracy…

out for a stroll

10.22.2012

i really love how the entire grid seems to change with rl seasons… i’m seeing less && less bright green grass and more gorgeous fall foliage. and while i was on the warrumbungles sim (shopping, of course x3), i realized just how pretty the scenery was outside the store i was in. so naturally, i couldn’t resist taking a stroll down the cobblestone street and snapping my blog pics for today there.

and this windlight setting i used made the pretty trees behind me seem to glow, which was a wonderful effect. i rarely post process my blog pics here, the only thing i tend to do is mess a bit with brighness/contrast and sometimes smooth out jaggies on the avatar mesh, so the backdrop you see here is all in-viewer goodness. i used a windlight by elysium eilde (with a few tweaks for more cloud coverage in the sky) and it was absolutely perfect for painting a pretty autumn picture.

now onto my look…

10.22.2012

the skin i’m wearing today is from leafy.. and i’m honestly not sure why i’ve not given this brand a chance before. i *love* this face. these lips are perfection in shape and color && this skin tone i’m wearing here (called lumiel) worked so well with the freckle tattoos i wear all the time. it came with a pure, make-up free face which is ideal for layering your own favorite makeup tattoos on top, and a face with a simple black cat eye that i’m wearing. i honestly could not decide which skin to pick up first — i sat with about a billion demos in my inventory before i finally grabbed one — because there were lovely fantasy-type skins (paler and super dark tones with gorgeous makeups, then “out there” skin tones in shades of purple and green), halloween themed skins, and then more “normal” faces with in a range of everyday makeups. i settled on this sapphire skin for the moment, because i loved the way it looks on my shape, but as i said… no idea why i’ve not hoarded this skin brand before now.

the hair style i’m wearing here is *free* currently, in the exile subscribo, along with two more. i spotted them on kavar cleanslate‘s flickr before i got the notice && immediately went to snag ’em. and as i was unpacking, my jaw dropped. i was honestly expecting just three hair styles — the ones in the flickr pic in those specific hair colors — and was *floored* when i realized the gifts are actually fat packs. such a generous gift and so worth grabbing, especially if you’re like me and you picked up these hairstyles when they were @ tdr blue… but they didn’t come in your preferred hair color then. now, they most certainly do! :3

and lastly, this sweater i’m wearing here is out for a really nice discount @ my attic by dcny. this round of goodies is an awesome one — including *more* hair from exile && a super cute style by ploom, too — but these sweaters immediately caught my eye. for *95L* you get the sweater in your choice of colors and then two matching scarves that i’m not wearing here, one each to match the sweaters color-blocks. and amazing deal for really well-made mesh.. after you smack the exile subscribo, head to my attic for some more awesome bargains!

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.

had enough halloween? not me!

10.19.2012

to be fair, i’d wander around the grid like this even when it’s not halloween… but these “costume” kind of looks are so fun for me to put together && i could not resist doing something a li’l spacey!

this look here involves a lot of good stuff, so i’ve got lots to talk about!

10.19.2012

first, the dress… it screamed *sci fi* to me. it’s new from glam affair && is out @ fameshed. i love the super structured shoulder pieces on this dress, it definitely looks to me like some sort of cybernetic uniform and it inspired my entire look for today~

next, the booooots(!). these are found @ the cinema event, by decoy. that entire event is just amazing — from the build, to the theme, to all the goodies offered there — and these boots in, appropriately enough, the sci fi section were one of my favorite grabs. i love the shape of them and the fit.. and those colored stripes towards the foot are color change in either solid or glittery choices!

and the skin… which really gives my avatar an alien sort of vibe. it’s *new* from red mint and while, technically, the one i’m wearing here is meant to be drow.. i think it really works well for a sci fi, fantasy kind of look. this silvery blue is so pretty && it comes with a ton of options for cleavage, freckles, and different lips. plus! if i weren’t wearing these awesome arm prosthetics from grollwerk, the skin even comes with pre-tinted glove layers to cover the base fingertips for wearing prim nails. *much* appreciated, because i do like my prim nails.

don’t worry — i’ll get back to blogging more “normal” things eventually. but doing halloween looks are just too much fun~ :3

loft

back to a more normal look for now, because you can’t spend all of october in costume…

…well, i guess you could, and i’d certainly try, but y’know. just go with it.

10.16.2012

vip group members for oOo studio were treated to this grungy loft posebox the other day && it inspired the entire look you see here. pose props, for me, are usually hit or miss — i tend to like them, but only if they’re unique enough to really stand out from finding a nice in-world backdrop. and this one, with the included poses and all those dynamic shadows cast through the windows and doors, was definitely a hit with me.

10.16.2012

also released the other day are these pierced && gauged ears, from mandala. it was instant love for me, i *had* to have them, and they are worth every linden imho. the options alone for wearing these make them fantastic — there’s tons of textures and colors to choose from for every single part of these ears (including the *adorable* kitty faces i chose here for the plugs) as well as several sizes of gauges in either plugs or tunnels. they look amazing on and are packed full of bits ‘n’ bobs, as if i’d expect any less from goodies from mandala~

plus, new *gorgeous* skin from glam affair, some mesh skinny jeans from sakide, a new gorgeous updo from truth… and… i guess i couldn’t resist adding in a li’l extra halloween with these alien eyes from insufferable dastard that are out @ the cinema event. perhaps this could count as a halloween costume for an alien, y’know.. trying to blend in? kind of a stretch but i’m trying, okay!? i can’t help it that i’m *super* excited for the 31st.. ~_~
