GxG 2014 Monochrome Christmas

All during the Christmas holiday season there are bright colours everywhere. Sometimes it’s just too much and I have to be so very monochrome.

GxG 2014 Gloomy Gothmas

Sometimes it can be a bit gloomy around the holidays, but some of us are always gloomy. With the advent of Gothmas by Gaslight we can get all our Christmas cheer in shades of black and grey. I love when it’s cold and the moon is bright. It’s the only kind of sunny day that I really enjoy.

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.

Gothmas by Gaslight 2014

It’s that time of year again and Gothmas by Gaslight has returned. The glorious dark Christmas shopping event will run from December 15th to January 3rd.  I have seen some of the things being created for this and they are glorious. For now though I have just a little peek for you of the event build.

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.

Victorian

I bought the arm warmers and then I bought the boots. Of course then I had to find something to wear them both with. Luckily ACS helped in that respect as I bought more Victorian inspired clothes in that event than I think I have in a very long time. Kita’s Sideshow has come to the rescue with this lovely skirt and top with its two tone black colour and all those wonderful ruffles. The blacks matched very well with both the boots and the arm warmers  making it a sure match.

What do you think?

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.
