“Just follow the Spiders”, he said…

I know Halloween is over, but we still have the dark season,  that all creatures of the night enjoy so much more than the summer… yes… me too 😉

I still have so much much designs left, that fuels my dark soul and my creepy, spooky imaginations. For example that amazing dress, which I got as a present from a dear friend – thank you so much Anne! She knows how much I love weird and dark designs and if she pulls doubles when she plays gachas, she sometimes asks me if I would like to have them. I have to say she knows me quite well so I mostly love the things she offers me *giggles* This time it was the super cool “Bride Dress”, one of the rares of the “Unbreakable Vow” gacha of Insomnia Angel. A sexy short dress with some ribs showing through at the waist, while the black dress is covered by cobwebs which are held by skeleton hands left and right. I really looks cool when you walk in it, as you get the feeling of you are guided and someone carries your veil for you *snickers*

For the shoes I wanted something that underlines the lightly vintage look, as well as the little witch touch that I felt with the dress and that amazing hair from Exile,which I found on one of the recent Fifty Linden Fridays. My final choice fell on the cute but super awesome “Frenchie Ankle Boots” from [Gos]. I always loved [Gos] for the incredible texture work and the amazing detailed designs. Especially those of their designs, that is a little bit outside the box like those neat ankle booties. You have the choice of 3 different HUDs and on each you have the choice of a thick and a thin heel, like you can see on the picture below. All of those HUD do have a wide range of color options for the shoes and the laces and so I just picked a few to show the differences 😉

Now I would like to drag your view a little more upwards to my face and my wrists. There we will find 2 incredible new releases from Eclipse Art Studio (E.A.Studio). First we have the cool “Murky Cuffs” a leather bracelet ornamented with a little spider web part. With the HUD you get the choice of 6 colors and 3 metals for those. The second new release is the “Sauron” eye patch. I love the Lord of the Rings and so that eye patch was a must have anyways *grins* With 6 leather colors, that match the cuffs as well, 2 metal colors and 20 different options for that creepy little eye you have all kind of possibilities to create various different styles.

The creepy, spooky nails with rings and the incredible cool ears come from CerberusXing (CX).  The nails are a group gift, but for me my favorite ones if I am going to do a creepy look. The nails look like those old lady/man nails in so many horror movies and with the simple rings to them they are kinda perfect for such looks.

I know I will immensely enjoy the dark season for a while.. I still have so many things sitting in my inventory that want to be shown off 😉 I hope you do enjoy my dark side as much as I do!

Steampunk Revolution!

TUNES

We’ve got a steampunk revolution
We’re tired of all your so-called evolution
We’ve darted back to 1886
Don’t ask us why; that’s how we get our kicks

Out with the new
In with the old
Out with the new
In with the old

Our underworld isn’t filled with fear
Just brass and copper, leather scrap, and rusty gear
You can keep your hip-hop techno-pop-rock schleppin-dub
I’m on my way to a coal-powered underground vintage pub

Your subculture shops at the mall
We build ours with blowtorch, needle, thread, and leather awl
With our antique clock parts we’ve taken all arts, fine art to fashion
And now we’re spreading worldwide to circle the globe with a furious passion

Thorn in my Side

TUNES

Thorn in my side
You’re always there
Just to remind me
That I still care
Thorn in my side
You won’t let me go
Right there beside me
To let me know

You just won’t quit
Once in a while when I crack a smile
You rub my face in it
Thorn in my side
You won’t let me run
God bless the fights
That I’ve lost and won
I’ve been pushed around
Been knocked down
Lost a round or three
Life took a couple of things I loved
When I was too blind to see
But I’ll survive
I gave up on luck but I’m still gettin’ by
Yeah I’m going to be alright
You can test my faith
But you can’t take my pride
Thorn in my side

Tentacles

TUNES

Imagine when your lungs are filling up with liquid
Intoxicated poison flowin’ through your veins
It seems like nothing’s changed
My purple neck is stating all that I’m against but.
I guess that’s how we end up
When we’re underwater

Mayday! mayday! this ships going down
And as your captain I’m ready to drown
I’m gonna drown so deep in you
I’m gonna drown so deep in you

 

These weights are tied up to my legs
Sinking lifeless has never felt so peaceful
These waves are crashing all the same
Water washing through this sea of people

This necklace that you’ve got wrapped around my neck
Will choke me slowly to my death
And I’m into that

“Am I Beautiful Yet?”

“Am I Beautiful Yet?”
I’ve blinded my eyes with ornament. Replaced my limbs with ornament. Cut out my organs for ornament. Am I beautiful yet? I can dance for you. Watch me. I will never stop dancing. Never stop watching. Never. Stop. Or else.

For the the theme of ‘Freak Show’, I’ve put together this circus ballerina. Her limbs are wrapped in gold with pink accents, as well as barbs, some tinted with blood. Ballet is known for being brutal in its precision, and this type of decoration carries the metaphor visually.

Her face is obscured by a mask of similar style. Floral designs, especially that of the thorny rose, are prominently featured here almost like a religious icon. It is perhaps one of the most eye catching pieces of the style, in part representing her inability to see the world for what it is. She is blinded by her preconception of what beauty is, and is unable to appreciate the world around her.

Finally to pull it all together, the most unsettling piece is her torso body mod. Many strive for an hourglass shape, but the tragic ballerina has assumed a literal hourglass, complete with animated sands. Yet another clever visual metaphor representing the years of life she’s shaved off by taking her pursuit of the beauty ideal to unhealthy lengths and destroying parts of herself in the process.

The entire style combines fragility, obsession, suffering, and horror into a form of visual storytelling, in order to tell a very tragic story.

As stated above, the look was made for a special show hosted by Madd Modelz on the amazing “Uri Jefferson’s Freakshow” sim (SURL). We all had to write our own descriptions for our styles and presentation and I had in mind what I wanted to say but since I am not a native English speaker, it mostly doesn’t sound as I want it to be. This time I had great help from a dear friend – Tour Blanche, the partner of my sweet sister Consuela Blanche. He is a god with words and made my idea sound so amazing, that I could not just have it for the show. I wanted them to be visible for longer than the few minutes of the show and he allowed me to post them here on my blog. Thank you for that Tour ♥

Destructive… Sometimes…

Today I am very happy to do my first post as an official CerberusXing blogger. I was dreaming of that for quite some time now and now it finally happened *dances around*. I love the creations and designs of CerberusXing for… I guess in forever. He has a very special way of creating his designs and his texture skills are incredible. I rarely saw a better leather than in CerberusXing’s designs. I love his sadistic, morbid take on and that he always dares to stretch the boundaries from modern dark fashion to a nearly haute macabre look sometimes. He isn’t afraid to even go for stronger morbid thoughts or sometimes for fun stuff when you do not expect it. I admire the variety of styles his creations can be used for, but with always having his very personal trademark on them – even with no label on it, you easily can recognize a CerberusXing design.

For my first post I decided to go with a mix and match of my favorite items from CerberusXing. The “Enochian Succuba” outfit including the boots and the choker, the “Mucronate Top” as well as the cool “War Fan” and the “Tritinium Clave Collar, which is a collaboration of CerberusXing and The White Crow. The collar, which right gets plunged into your skin and flesh comes with an amazing tattoo layer that supports exactly that and makes it look more realistic. The bar-code reminds me of some kind of registration of a slave on a certain website 😉

If you look at the picture below you can see another extraordinary creation of CerberusXing – the “Ostium Impaler Ears”. I am a huge friend of unusual mesh ears and with the long stretched ear hole and the piercings these ears have exactly that what it takes. You are able to color the bottom of the earlobe like a tattoo and that heavy earing shows you why it is stretched that way 😉

For a cool look you need the perfect makeup as well and so I wanted to use one of the newest tattoos from Nefekalum Tattoos. His tattoos are more like artwork on your skin. Sometimes you get the feeling, that he has a slightly destructive adder which he puts in some of his creations and the same I feel sometimes with CerberusXing. I  am not saying that this is a bad thing! I have this adder as well and I really enjoy it, to live that part of me in SL more than in RL – that really balances me out sometimes and keeps me more healthy in RL*giggles*
