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.

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.

Skulls!

As previously mentioned, I love skulls. So this is my little skull themed outfit with a little black plaid thrown in. Wearing some of my very favourite designers here. There are some shops that I just keep going back to again and again.  Mesh has really changed the game too. While  I do sometimes see the same mesh template in several shops, the items are so completely different. So who cares if someone uses a template. Gimme those fab outfits.

I am a hair addict though and yes I do have hair with skulls in it.

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.

New Dress From Fantasy Faire

Fantasy Faire is all over but I had to share my prized purchase. It’s this wonderful little black dress from Lassitude & Ennui (which you can find in the store now). It has this lovely corset, but what I really love about it is the skirt. It’s just so different to so many other dresses I own.

Of course more MV boots too, but those aren’t from the faire. Those are just part of my shoe addiction.

I Got New Boots!


I got new boots!

This of course meant that I had to go shopping just so I could find the right thing to go with them. I found several something, but this one was gotten from a new shop find. The shop is called Corvus and this is just one of 4 dresses  bought there. Needless to say, my shopping trip for something to go with the 3 pair of boots.

What do you think? Did  succeed?

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.
