WGF 2015 – Alas, I knew you well

I knew you well, I really did. Alas, it was not to be and instead I hold your skull in my hands, Used solely to weight the papers upon my desk. Alas, you may have been useless in life, but now no longer.

GxG 2014 Those Poisonous Shoes

Gothas by Gaslight is now open! You can find the blog HERE. Merchant list and sim maps can be found HERE.

The event is across 2 sims.
Sium Taxi
Cursed Taxi (Adult sim)

Normally I wouldn’t devote a whole post to a single item in an event, but this is a very special case. Back on 2012 at the first World Goth Fair Axi Kurmin released a set of jewellery called My Poisonous Friend. The necklace in this set fast became my go to necklace and is by far my favourite piece of jewellery in SL. (I’d murder for a RL version) When I saw that she had designed a pair of companion shoes and was releasing them at GxG I squealed with delight. We’re talking real sounds here and a funny look of confusion from my husband.

These shoes are amazing and again I’d murder for a RL version. The ones on my toes are the GxG Exclusive red pair, but you can also get the non-exclusive version that has a colour hud and so many colour options. The shoes are for Slink High Feet, so you’ll be needing those if you haven’t got them already. Who’re we kidding though; you’ll buy the feet just for these shoes.

Taxi right to the House of Rain stall HERE.

My toes are also GxG items. Dead of Winter Slink nail polish from event sponsor Beautiful Freak


Flying Solo – ACS2014

I haven’t made a full round of the event yet, but the moment I saw Syn’s offering on Flickr I made a bee-line for her stall. I love this jacket so much. I think I’ll hop on that ship and sail away to be a Pirate Captain. To hell with work, I want to pillage.

Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf

Since mesh came into the world of Second Life I seem to have gained a jewellery habit. House of Rain and Maxi Gossamer are my dealers of choice and for good reason. The necklace I’m wearing is HoR’s newest offering which can be found at the Enchantment event. I do love this necklace; it sits in just the right place and the red is perfect. This necklace is exclusive to Enchantment, so if you want it, then you’d best be getting down there.

Autumn Cafe

I seem to be spending an awful lot of time in cafes at the moment. I think it’s because it is October which means lots of cold wind and hot drinks while the leaves fall. Whether in RL or in SL, Setpt/October is my favourite time of year. I love the cold and the wind and the leaves.

And everyone stops looking at me funny for wearing long sleeves and black.

Just Stop

Sometimes you need to just stop. A day of doing nothing important. A day of sitting around being idle. I’ve had the house to myself all day and it’s been wonderful. Just me and the cats.

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.
