a queen && her minion

i’m (an evil) queen for a day..

10.26.2012

…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….

10.26.2012

anyway!

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..

sometimes, halloween is about… indulgences. the holiday gives you free reign to dress up as whatever you like. a vampire, a ghost, a zombie…. anything that tickles your fancy.

so today, it’s actually my best friend who inspired these costumes. bff vivi is *all* about the anime, so when we found a few key accessories on the marketplace..

…i knew i’d have to indulge her, just a li’l bit.

these mesh heads from utilizator are all kinds of awesome — i’m wearing the regular female version but vivienne is wearing the *chibi* style (and is so cute i could scream x3) — and are chalk full of options. there are several facial expressions, including different mouth and eyebrow positions, as well as different eye styles and colors… and each come in three skin tones, with matching skins and head pieces, for tons of customization.

these would be fantastic for cosplay in sl — emulating a favorite character from an anime or manga series would be a breeze with these head pieces — but they also work for making up your own types of characters like vivi && i have done.

she and i decided to dress as close as we could get to *anime schoolgirls*, with her outfit coming from collabor88 by r2. when the collection rolled over at the beginning of the month && we saw these sailor suits out… vivienne and i both knew we had to do something with them for halloween. luckily for us, rei2 aya made some *fantastic* mesh pieces that were perfect for the looks we were going for and vivi looks so freakin’ cute in this outfit.

mine, on the other hand, comes from monso… and i *love* it. the version i grabbed comes with a bunch of color options for every single part of the outfit — from the trim on the jacket to different styles and colors for the tie at the neck — and is wonderfully constructed. it was absolutely perfect for a schoolgirl look && i spent much longer than i’d care to admit, just pushing buttons on the HUD to see all the color combinations.

while vivi went with a lunchbox (from love soul), i decided to wear a backpack.. one i’ve had from pink fuel for a very long time now. i’m glad i had it, it really came in handy for adding just that li’l extra touch to my costume, and i mean.. it’s pink fuel. and it’s a bunny. you cannot go wrong!

i always tend to lean on the scarier side of halloween, but that doesn’t mean every costume has to be freaky ‘n’ blood-soaked. being super adorable works just as well, too!

ps. these last four pics were taken in a photo booth on the love soul sim… while they turned out adorable, i’ve no idea what the text says across the top of each panel (i just kinda mashed buttons on the dialog box until the backdrop was cute enough). here’s hoping it’s appropriate!

happy easter!

happy easter to those of you out there that celebrate it! ❤❤

and as if the build up to the holiday wasn’t bunny && pink enough… here are bff vivi && i to bunny and pink it up even more!

04.08.2012

nothin’ like an entire holiday’s worth of excuses to break out the bunny ears! \o/

vivienne && i enjoy the pink just as much as the next girly-girl, but we rarely indulge the frilly and cutesy side of pink. luckily for us, katat0nik seemed to have all of our pink rabbity needs covered…

04.08.2012

vivi’s dress is actually part of an entire costume (complete with a hood, hair, and bunny ears not worn here) that looks like a perfectly detailed cake, it’s so pretty. the ribbon details, the collar && the shape of the skirt all make for one big bit o’ cute… and the dress was a nice && easy match to the socks and shoes, since everything was from the same store!

both vivienne && i are of the mix it and match it mindset.. typically, if things we buy come as a full set or outfit, we’ll take pieces and mix it in with other items in our virtual closets. but when things work together as nicely as these do, there’s no reason to go out of your way *just* to mix ‘n’ match.

04.08.2012

my dress is from katat0nik as well… except it’s a group gift for the holiday! lots of ruffles, ribbons, and a pattern of adorable bunny faces made this dress *far* too cute not to wear. it’s all the little details that i love about katat0nik’s items — there’s always so much packed in. there’s a bow on the back that i (unfortunately) didn’t photograph, there’s a pair of panties that were included with the dress underneath all those ruffles, and the lace trim… the bow on the chest… the li’l faces on each && every one of those bunnies… needless to say, it’s an awesome group gift && even though there is a fee to join, doing so is worth it! this gift is indicative of the gifts always out at katat0nik… generous!

vivi && i both hope you have a relaxed, chocolate-filled, wonderful easter… and we promise to save you a peep for your easter basket (but only if you act quickly! peeps are so nomnomable~)!
