Bare Faced Lie

I’m sure most of  you have seen the bloggers and SL photographers taking pictures of their avatars without any enhancements or make-up. I normally don’t do these challenges, but this one struck me as a real challenge. As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I wear a white skin; I am a Goth after all. With this in mind it can be a real challenge to get the lighting right for photos in general, but taking a close shot with no make-up was a bit harder than usual.

I do think this turned out pretty well though. Took about 4 attempts with different lighting settings so that I wasn’t a ball of glare, but also still able to see my skin is white with details. Too soft a light and it’d just look like a pale skin; which it isn’t.

I Know Karate

Don’t let the dress fool you; I can kick your ass in the blink of an eye because I know Karate.

This is a late ACS post really but I couldn’t resist showing this awesome outfit off. I don’t often go in for full outfits and prefer to mix and match, but for once the whole deal made it for me. I’m sure she will have it up in the shop soon as ACS only ended a week ago. You could always poke her if you can’t wait.

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.

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.

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.
