House of Rain

Daring in Tokyo

I got lost wandering around Tokyo and decided balancing on the edge of a walkway would be fun.

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 – 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.

Corseted for Trouble

Since the introduction of mesh I seem to have acquired a very large collection of corsets. I’ve gotten very good at creating alpha layers for the overbust ones as they invariably haven’t taken into account real proportions. I’ve also increased my underbust corsets and those are my favourites. Rarely do I have to worry about alphas for these and they’re perfect for pairing with  tops and jackets like this one.

I love Lokii’s highly cinched corsets and I have many. She keeps tapping into my mini-addiction. God help me if she ever decides to make hair…

Beautiful Garbage

So a week or so ago Lokii sent out a picture of this dress to her collective crazies and as usual I went all swoony.  So the dress is on sale at The Event.

Now I usually prefer shopping events to hunts in order to find new and interesting designers. The Event is a big designer event so I was a little hopeful of there being a few new designers. I was unfortunately very disappointed. The clothes were good, but boring. I came out of this big sale event with exactly one dress; the one below.

There just wasn’t anything interesting. Mainstream clothes design bores me in the Real World and it bores me in SecondLife.

Go find Malfean Visions at The Event.

Catherine

Sometimes you find those pieces of clothes that just looks right. So when Catherine was released by Pale Empress I was really excited. It has a key-hole front and tails at the back. It fits over my mesh jeans perfectly too.

Seriously love Pale Empress’ clothes.
