The Future is Looking Bleak…

..But at least I look great.

It’s all crumbling down around our ears. There is rioting and fighting in the streets and a girl has to defend herself. It’s times like these that you need to put fear instantly into anyone who sees you and a gun to back it up if they don’t run. I will take them down if they don’t run. Don’t let the short skirt fool you…it’s so I can run after you faster.

Everything but the hair, eye shadow and skin are at Futurewave. You have no idea how much I am in love with that BF Galaxy Nail polish.

A Peak at the Futurewave Event Build

So, I do very very little official event blogging. I choose very carefully because I don’t have tons of time and I have no time for bullshit. Really it’s no surprise then that both of the events I’ve officially blogged have been Cursed Events. Last year I did the World Goth Fair and I’ve chosen to stick my toe into Futurewave on this time around. Futurewave is a little outside of my normal style, but I love several of the designers involved and others that I don’t know but look interesting.

It will surprise no one that Lokii has yet again done an amazingly wonderful build for the event. It is very fitting and very nicely done. I think people will like this one as much as her previous builds; I certainly think it’s fantastic.

The future will be open to everyone February 15th to 23rd. No slurl yet for you, but here’s a couple of pictures to tease you instead.


A Very Dark Gothmas

Gothmas by Gaslight is one of those events that I look forward to. With all this happiness and cheer, it’s nice to have a darker side to go shopping in. This year we got 2 lovely shopping locales to  fill our dancing needs with. One is located on Cursed and you can get to it HERE. The other is located at Sium and you can get to it HERE.

I adore this year’s build done by Lokii and decorated by her and Axi. Every time she does a build I’m blown away and I think that she’s outdone herself. Then she does another build and I’m amazed again. Lokii is just made of awesome.

So the boots, dress, lipstick and necklace all came from GxG. Beautiful Freak has several bits of make-up on offer and I bought 2 of the lipsticks just because they fit perfectly. I have a hard time finding lipsticks that aren’t made for a forever puckering sex doll. I broke my No Gacha rule for the necklace from Malfean Visions. Luckily I got this one on my second try.

Born to be Deco

If asked what design era I favour, the answer is always Deco. I do love Victorian; after all I am a goth, but Deco sets my heart racing. From simple things like pottery and ash trays to buildings and furniture. The cars, the clothes, the whole world of design in the Deco period, I love it all.

So you can imagine my glee when House of Rain and Senzafine both posted pictures of their offerings for Genre who was doing Deco this round. Yes, there was a squee of delight. I bought several things at Genre that day, but by far Axi (HoR) and Synjari (Senzafine) were my 2 favourites. Both of their offerings are so perfect that they could’ve actually been from the era. I haven’t taken the jewellery or dress off since I bought them last week.

Genre slurl for you.

Also, I couldn’t decide which picture to use so you get 2 pictures today.

WGF – Licensed Band Tshirts

So just to show that there is a right way to do things, Axi and Cruel Britannia went out and talked to a bunch of bands that they know and we all love and got permission to use their band logos on tshirts. They were able to get permission from 34 bands to make tshirts for the WGF with all proceeds going to S.O.P.H.I.E. They are mesh shirts and there are male and female styles.

You can find them on Cursed and on Port Seraphine You have until Noon on June1st to get the shirts you want. Only 40L each and all fully licensed.

WGFGacha

There are of course  rares and the most sought after appears to be the You Shriek shirt. Not only because Razi & You Shriek is awesome, but because the gachas appear to  like screwing with us and not giving out as many as we’d like. While not intentional on Axi’s part, it does mean that some ferocious trading is happening. Of course unless you’re like me and spend waaaaay to much trying to get that damned shirt. In the end my lovely friend Syn gave me hers.

I do have a complete set of shirts though…and oh so many duplicates.

WGF – Why Hello Mister Kraken!

Axi told Lokii not to summon anything. This of course meant that Lokii was pretty much required to summon something.

Meet Mr. Kraken.

You can’t feed him, but no one said I couldn’t make friends and feed him stupid people.

Everything I’m wearing is from the World Goth Fair with the exception of my hair and nails. WGF can be found on Cursed and Port Seraphine until May 31st.

Here’s a close-up of the make-up, necklace and shoes for you.

 


WGF – You Should’ve Seen It Coming

Is it really a surprise that the first dress I’ve fallen in love with is one of the 3 dresses being offered by Malfean Visions? No, I didn’t think so either. Here’s some World Goth Faire offerings.

So the World Goth Faire is up and rolling and I’ve got the SLURLs for you.

WGF on Cursed (This is an adult sim)

WGF on Port Seraphine (This is a moderate sim)

The Faire is May 15th to 31st and proceeds will go to the Sophie Lancaster Foundation. Go buy things and enjoy.

So as I said, first in what promises to be a long line of posts is one of the three dresses being offered by Malfean Visions. This is totally my favourite too. It’s a bit French burlesque/Victorian goth feel about it. I love it. Of course there are many colours, but of course I’m in the Red and Black.

For my jewellery I am wearing Lassitude & Ennui’s offering for the fair.  I love skulls and bones in necklaces. I’ve been all over SL looking for good skull necklaces. So this bone necklace is fantastic.  The set is completed with little drop earring and a circlet, (which I’m not wearing), that is in the same sort of shape as the necklace.

I’m not wearing my normal skin either. I have the Jalwa skin Jezebel on. This is a the vamp shade and looks quite good. It’s nice to see a white goth skin that isn’t sporting raccoon eyes.

Couple of close ups so you can see the make-up detail on the skin and L&E’s lovely necklace and earrings.

Non-WGF things I’m wearing.

World Goth Faire – Port Seraphine Sim location

More WGF sim preview. Don’t worry, I have much clothes to show you, but I think very often the hard work that goes into the building of the environments for these faires gets overlooked. Both locations are wonderfully laid out and a pleasure to see and walk through. A lot of thought went into both locations and I want to show them off too. The builders deserve much credit.

So this time the buildings were made my Nephilaine and the putting everything in its place was done by Lokii Violet (Mistress of building shiny stuff) and Axi Kurmin (WGF Mistress). So without further ado, some shiny unadulterated pictures.

World Goth Faire – Cursed Sim location

Okay so I’ve got a couple of shots of the World Goth Faire Cursed Sim location for you. I have been looking forward to this so much since last year. We had some amazing stores last year and this year there are even more.

I won’t lie to you, I work at Gothika and I live on Cursed. This faire holds a very special place in my heart. The Faire is May 15th to 31st and proceeds will go to the Sophie Lancaster Foundation.

I’ll make sure to share with you all kinds of things, including much much much clothes. First though some unadulterated images of the WGF sim that will be on Cursed.  The  build is from *~by Nacht and was puzzled together by Lokii Violet.
