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

don’t mind me, i’m just lounging around today..

10.13.2012

suppose i needed to recover from the nekkidness of yesterday. ;P

so i slipped into a comfy (and still pretty!) tank top from red mint && these cozy mesh socks from intrigue co (out @ collabor88) that are totally adorbs and called it a day.

10.13.2012

my hair for today is actually a *freebie*(!!) from magika — two colors of this faint hairstyle, the orange-dipped style i’m wearing here && another tipped in red, are available to subscribo members free for halloween! this straight bang’d style, complete with long curly q strands falling over the shoulders, is one of my favorite releases to date from magika.. so i may have squee’d a li’l when i saw these out for the grabbing.

and because i cannot resist accessorizing even a little bit, i tried on this *new* necklace from amorous and totally fell in love… this orange color is gorgeous, all the metal bits ‘n’ pieces are color change (ranging from dark silver to a deep bronze to a shiny black), and all the details on this piece are just perfection.

i may be recovering from a bout of outfit block, and still not quite fully covered here, but at least i’m not subjecting everyone to my bare boobies again! bwahahah~

rainy days

with the turn of the seasons, my rl weather has been cold, gloomy and soaked with rain. watching it storm outside my real windows inspired me to bring all those chilly raindrops into the virtual world with me..

09.26.2012

i *love* the rain. the best weather for getting a good night’s sleep is when it is cool && rainy… and i really love listening to raindrops fall on the roof. but having to go out in it is a whole other story…

luckily, tea time released this set of mesh trench coats which were *perfect* for creating a rainy day kind of look in-world. i love the combo of this warm brown color with accents of deep red. the subtle pattern on the cut-outs on the side add a bit of interest && all the li’l details (the metal buckles, buttons, and belt at the waist) make this a really well-made piece.

09.26.2012

wearing a hat, with this red mint mesh hair && a gorgeously patterned umbrella from the sea hole completes my rainy day attire… and with those, i added in accents of a dark teal. these colors together — deep brown, crimson, teal and khaki — all look *so* nice together (at least, imho! ;P) and really look like autumn to me. more subdued colors, in richer tones, work so well for fall.. and, as a whole, i really like the way this look turned out!

horned && adorned

shiny, dangly, metallic and embellished…

09.12.2012

…sometimes, i feel like a magpie when it comes to pretty things. i must have them all.

would you believe this entire look came about because i *needed* an excuse to wear these horns? they are from the plastik and are some of the most wonderfully ornate things i’ve seen in a long, long time. the textures are flawless — and my pictures here, sadly, do not even do them enough justice. the pair i snagged, called constellar are dotted all over with an almost glittery, stars-in-outer-space sort of pattern. and when combined with the absolutely *amazing* jeweled adornments, i fell in love. hard.

09.12.2012

this cropped mesh vest from red mint gave me instant elvish-attire sorta vibes the second i tried it on. the clasp at the neck and the dangling jewel fringe seemed appropriate to dress in a very *fantasy* sort of way, though i can totally see this vest working for something more modern day too. perhaps paired with a tank or tee underneath and some roughed up denim?

but i took the fantasy theme && really ran with it — using an opalescent teal glam affair skin that i picked up at one of the dressing room rounds a few months back, adding a pair of claws from ni.ju that i adore, some lovely new bronze bangles from amorous, a couple of facial tattoos from nuuna’s that fit for the look i was going for and an all-over ancient text tattoo from para designs.

true enough, it is not the most practical of fantasy wear but… when is fantasy wear ever really practical, anyway? ;P

unmentionables

there’s not a whole lot i can say here, other than…

09.11.2012

allarik && me are in our underpants. i’m in my unmentionables to show off new awesome stuffs, but he’s just eye candy (you’re welcome). and i suppose, this time, the snapshot speaks louder than my words ever could, hm? ;p

right! so i’ve been needing an excuse to get in touch with my sexy side and the latest mesh releases from onyx wear && red mint helped me do just that. lingerie is the thing i probably own the least of in my virtual closet, but pretty underthings like this make me *totally* happy to change that.

i honestly thought that bras ‘n’ panties were probably the one thing i would not like (or need) in mesh — clothing layers seemed to do the job fairly well. but that was *before* i tried them and these sets from onyx wear are so sexy it hurts. little details, like lace trims and teeny bows, when combined with how well they fit and how *realistic* it looks on… they are just delicious and i’m afraid the few pieces of clothing layer lingerie i do own won’t be getting much use anymore.

09.11.2012

there are lots of patterns to choose from (i think my personal fave out of the bunch is the candy rainbow set in the upper left pic, so cute!) and are def worth checking out. i love that the bra and panties are separate mesh pieces, which made fitting a breeze for me since i could mix-and-match sizes. plus *nothing* is sexier than a bra you can cam all around. …i’m just sayin’.

and of course, the corset i’m wearing… also new && also mesh, from red mint. i am a *sucker* for corsets, i absolutely love them. and with mesh, my love for them has only grown leaps and bounds. the one i’m wearing here comes with the collar attached as well as a version without the collar included… and again, lots of choice when it comes to color and pattern (including tartan! the tartan corsets are aaaaaaaawesome, too~).

you can read more about the corset here && the underwear here if you’re interested in seeing *all* the colors and styles available. and go get in touch with your sexy side too… ’cause it’s fun.

09.11.2012

…lots of fun. 😉

frock

this new mesh frock from mon tissu is so, so cute. it’s both sexy && girly all at the same time and i *really* love the way it fits.

…but i’ll be damned if the word frock doesn’t make me think of nothing but salad fingers.

08.17.2012

“that’s a pretty looking frock on your body.”

/me gets the jibblies

aaaanyway, enough about creepy and disturbing cartoons (lest i seriously freak myself out here) and more on the dress!

there’s lots of color choice to be had, but i picked a nice neutral gray. and despite the flowy fabric, low neckline && general *daintiness* of this dress… i couldn’t help but wear it in a rather un-girly-like way: with combat boots! \o/

said combat boots are also *new* && from red mint.. and are all sorts of deliciousness.

08.17.2012

i chose to wear the black pair with my look for today, but i figured the other colors were just too awesome not to show off. the three i have here are an awesome rust, a silvery-white and of course, black — but you can see the rest of the color choices right here. each pair comes with a HUD that allows you to change the socks inside in a whole slew of colors, but the best part? you can change each sock separately — even though i didn’t do it here, you can have a teal sock on the left and a white sock on the right. really awesome for getting another pop of color on your feet~

08.17.2012

i paired the dress with a *group gift* mesh tote bag from auxiliary, some jewelry from both amorous and blitzed, a fantastically sexy and side-swept hair from exile && two pairs of gartered socks layered together from league and sn@tch. it’s simple, it’s comfortable, it’s easy to wear && it’s a nice mixture of both ladylike and.. decidedly not. i love it when i’m able to wear an article of clothing this way — while it looks awesome in the way the designer intended, i’m glad i can style it any way i please and it still looks lovely. well-made things tend to lend themselves to this and there is no denying that mon tissu’s garments are at the top of the list when it comes to all things well-made~

corona radiata

there are *new* piercings out @ haus of darcy(!!) for horror haute and…

03.25.2012

..just look at how amazing they are. pardon me while i drool all over myself…

*ahem*

the corona radiata set includes both the facial && chest piercings (and i know it’s hard to see thanks to my choice in hair, cause i’m just good like that.. derp. but! there are eyebrow piercings too on the facial set), are *unisex*, come in a pack with eight of aydan darcy‘s gorgeous metallic textures… and the entire set is just *100L* from today until 31st.

03.25.2012

i’m wearing the set here in seep (the dark red) && razor (which is, by far, my favorite metal *ever* on a piercing in all of sl — this dark, shiny, gunmetal color is the first one i always reach for). and do i even have to put into words how much i love them? hod jewelry is, imo, the nicest for piercings on the grid, period. you always get something that’s out of the ordinary, with lots of options, for an incredible price. so these… i *highly* recommend you grab while they are on sale!

it is rare for me to blog, let alone be in world at all, without some of aydan’s jewelry on. hod has been, for quite some time, my go to for piercings && uniquely beautiful jewelry. i’ve raved about haus of darcy so often here because… i blog things i love. i blog things i wear. vixxie just isn’t vixxie without piercings… and hod‘s are so high on my list of favorites that no other brand can really compete.

so if i’ve not convinced you in the past to go check it out, you really should go now and see exactly what i’m talking about. i *promise*, you will not be disappointed! ❤

return

sooooooooooooo~

it’s been a couple days, huh? my bad! the bff && i have been sucked in to minecraft as of late.. we’ve been playing it pretty much in every available free second we’ve both had in the last few days. killin’ creepers, tamin’ ocelots, buildin’ epic home bases… y’know. all that good minecraft-y stuffs!

but i took a break from my blocky minecraftian self, just for ya’ll~ ;p i didn’t want to get even more behind on bloggity stuffs, because lemme tell ya.. there’s always lots to blog, so if i don’t keep up with it? i get behind *so* fast && end up with a back log of things i wanna show off. and that’s never fun!

so, enough about minecraft && on with the look!

03.07.2012

lots of skin! \o/

this look is an combination of a whole bunch’a goodies… some older, some newer. it’s fun to go through my inventory (what i have left of it, bahah) && pick out bits and pieces i’ve not worn in a while… and then try to work them into a more recent look. so along with the new mesh gos boots, the new ripped up stockings and cybernetic ink from onyx wear && the new super short skirt from red mint.. i also have on some older gloves from plastik, a gun from breach that’s so fun to wear (and i do wear it often, but just as an accessory! ;)), && a skin from curio that i’ve loved hardcore since i picked it up last summer.

03.07.2012

top that off with a recent release from truth that’s so big and so windblown, some of my favorite horns from rue && my absolute favorite for piercings with hod.. and i’m pretty proud with how this look turned out!

but i’ve got some wheat waiting to harvest, some ore to mine, and some pigs to saddle.. so i’m off for a li’l more minecraft adventuring. don’t mind me if my posts are a bit slow for a while, but i’ll split my time between sl and minecraft as best i can. which is *such* hard work, mmmhmmm~

lazy weekends

/me yawns && stretches…

mmmnhh.. such a lazy day today~

i didn’t do much of anything all day. slept late, watched TV (catching up on episodes from last season’s rupaul’s drag race… can i just say how *fucking obsessed* i am with this show!? omgaaaah!).. i barely left the comfort of my couch. and it was *nice*, i’ve not had the chance to vegetate this way in a looo~ooong time.

but i did put forth the effort to get dressed out of my PJs. ;p and i figured i should blog today, even if this post is on the cusp of today and tomorrow. i wanted to show off the lazy comfy look i put together for today, at least… but i didn’t feel much like posing and primping for it.

so instead, i moved my lounging from the couch to lounging outside.. from sofa to outdoor swing instead!

it’s baby steps, honey. baby steps.

03.03.2012

and apparently, one of my meeroos felt like sneaking into the shot. i totes think she photo bombed me. but she’s cute, so i’ll allow it. everyone say hi to nymph~

it was nice out today, surprisingly. a li’l chilly (hence the hat from red mint && the super cute mesh toe socks from intrigue co, just to keep me warm!), but still sunny. it makes me hopeful that spring is finally on its way. i’ve been trying to think of ways to make our beachy bit o’ land more.. seasonal. add back some greenery, maybe a few extra palm trees, and really make it look.. lush. as it is, it’s pretty much sand, water && house (a very nicely decorated house, tho! eheh~), and i am ready for the extra warmth and sunshine to come back to my second life just like it is in my first. or at least, i’m really hoping it’s coming back to my first life.. i’ve been so itching for springtime weather that i’m practically going insane.

03.03.2012

this outdoor swing was a good start to make things look more springy. it’s out for stumblebum @ cheeky pea and comes with a *ton* of nice, lounging poses… which were perfect for my lazy day today. it’s in a temporary spot outside, so i’ll have to think of a nicer place for it to go, but it caught just enough sunshine to appease me underneath our outdoor trellis.

maybe once i’m feeling less lazy, i’ll actually work on sprucing up the parcel with plant life. after all, nothing says *spring* quite like bright flowers and rich green grass. it was just so tough today to get the motivation to do anything… and i *still* have that season of drag race to finish (it’s season 3.. and i totes think raja is gonna win!). i swear, i’ve been watching so much of it lately between the older season and the new episodes too (sharon needles.. love her ❤❤❤) that i’m gonna start thinking i’m a drag queen myself..

if you can’t love yo’ self.. how in the hell you gon’ love somebody else!? can i get an amen up in here!
