a queen && her minion

i’m (an evil) queen for a day..


…complete with my very own minion!

this look was *all* for fun.. and inspired by these adorable plastic crowns @ collabor88 by laviere. i knew i had to do an evil fairy queen kind of look with this crown and my *petite* li’l friend here was more than willing to dress up with me. she seemed to think she was a teeny tiny princess, but alas… she is my minion instead! /me cackles maniacally….



this costume all started with the crown, but it really came together when i started playing around in my inventory. i got lucky with the halloween gatchas @ the depraved nation and was able to snag these super cute horns by chus in red… which matched this dress i’ve had for *ages* from katat0nik quite nicely. some freebie kiss-dotted stockings by sheer && a pair of color-change pumps from gos matched, too, and when i added the wings (because *every* evil fairy queen needs wings!) from epic and this wonderfully sparkly wand (because *every* evil queen needs a wand, too!) from love always.. this look suddenly became very evil-queenly indeed.

truth be told, i did most of the shopping for this look right in my own inventory. it’s a mixture of some older items && a few new ones, but i was really surprised how easy it came together. perhaps i was *meant* to be an evil queen.. like it’s kismet, y’know? i had most of the things to put together this look already, maybe i truly am an evil queen in disguise..


erm. i am evil, i assure you. i *am*, i swear!!

bubblegum mermaids

bff vivi && i have had a fascination with mermaids ever since we both were youngins. the little mermaid was, like, *the* movie for us.. we both were pretty much obsessed. x3 and because of that, she and i have always kinda wanted to float around in sl as pretty mer-avatars, but we never found the right bits && bobs… until recently, that is.

evie’s closet is a new-to-me brand, but oooh my gawwwd such pretty things there! it *totally* made me tempted to buy an entire wardrobe of mermaid tails just to have one for every day of the week! @_@ the one vivienne is wearing was actually discounted, but i’ve no idea for how long! if you’re a.. frugal mermaid, it’s definitely worth grabbing. it comes with every last li’l bit you need to look the part — all the fins, the tail, the scales, the delicate accessories && the lovely top are all included. it’s in such a beautiful color palette, looks very… opalescent to me.

and since it’s bubblegum weekend, vivi decided on a pretty shade of lime green hair from truth.. that looks all… floaty && soft, like it would while in the water. with the colors she picked, white and gold and green, she looks very sweet && innocent. like a *good* mermaid! while i, on the other hand (or fin? i suppose?)…

…look like her evil friend. ;3

my tail, fins, top, belly ring, crown && bangles are all from evie’s closet too. but i decided to go the darker route, which always seems to be the case. and there’s nothin’ wrong with having a li’l bad in you, as long as it looks as nice as these pieces do! i was really, really worried about how the tails would look.. if our legs would *mesh* well enough with the prim attachments to look seamless, but i am quite impressed with the way they fit and with the way they look. all you need is a decent mermaid AO (of which there are several *cheap ones* on the marketplace if you search!) to help keep your legs smushed together for the illusion to work. it’s flawless && it’s awesome, and testing out swimmy animations in the water off of our new land was *so much* fun!!

and since my fins were black && silver, i decided to go with that theme all over — complete with some coral-y face makeup from chelle, a choker from loulou&co, a pair of mysteriously dark eyes from insufferable dastard (which is seriously my go-to for eyes now) && wispy, blue hair from exile that looks both badass and water-swept all at once. \o/

just like everything in sl that i enjoy — whether it’s elven ears, faun legs, horns, wings, kitty tails, demon skins, or even things like piercings and tattoos — it’s awesome to me that i can wear one thing one day.. and then something totally && completely different the next. if i feel like swimmin’ around as a mermaid, i can (and will!) and it’s as easy as switching to a different outfit. the freedom to do that, even in a virtual world, is an awesome thing! i’m glad that there are talented content creators out there that will indulge my.. fickle nature and make such perdyyy pieces for me to hoard. and speaking of hoarding, the blue version of my mermaid outfit is callin’ my name…
