“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!

The Engine Room – Part I

The Engine Room is open now for about a week and it has so many AMAZING designs and creations that I wasn’t able to put them in one picture, so be prepared for so more steampunk madness in the next days!

My first post is kinda centered around that super cool top from [ContraptioN] and the awesome cute Barn owls in the steampunk version from {-Maru Kado-}. There is 2 packs of owls and each all owls come in 2 different version – one ‘casual’ owl and one ‘steampunk’ owl with all the sweet gear and goggles. But when I was setting up my little scenery inside the amazing skyebox from Catacomb –  while I realized those amazing rich and detailed textures – I found so much more cute and superb made things that I really had to hold myself back from cluttering my picture with too much things! The super cute animesh cat from HEXtraordinary in a rezzable and a wearable version, the incredible textured furniture from 22769… if you are a steampunk fan or someone that loves some Victorian gear and vibes, you HAVE to take a look at the Engine Room – you have time until the 20th or October!

But the Engine Room not only has furniture, decor and animals, you can find some totally crazy clothing and accessories. Today I combined the “Enginieer’s Top” from [ContraptioN] and the “Knickerbocker” pants, socks and shoes from Hotdog. The cool “Plague Mask” was made by Static. I was trying a lot what I could wear as a head piece of hair with that mask and in the end i decided not to just put a hat on top, but wear the unisex, short “No.Shallow” hairstyle, which no.match released at MoM this month.

I do not want to write too much today, as the pictures should be the main focus for this mega awesome designs and creations and… I have to admit, I already work on my second part pictures and realized I will probably even have to have a 3rd Engine Room part *giggles*

Always on the Run

My mama said
That it’s good to be fruitful
But my mama said
Don’t take more than a mouthful
And my mama said
That it’s good to be natural
And my mama said
That it’s good to be factual
But I’m always on the run

Styling around a sideboard?

Gothic Lolita 001

Styling around a sideboard or a sideboard as styling accessory?

Yes you read right ;). This time, I wanted to showcase the new “Sophia Sideboard” from Leezu, that wou will find at the Arcade gacha event. The “Sophia Sideboard” is available in 8 different colors and textures  in the closed version like we have it on the pictures. The 2 rares are a dark and white sideboard with open compartments and some clothing hanging out, very cute.

So since I call my blog mainly a fashion blog I usually combine furniture, plants and whatever with some stylings ;).

For today I had a rose tinted sideboard so I wanted to find something matching ;).

As all of you know probably about my pink allergy, I decided to have just a little bit of pink for my look 😉 . Ok.. even maybe more because I wanted to let the sideboard shine and pop out a little more but the first reason sounded better :p .

I am an addicted to the creations of Mila Tatham, so I looked through my SoliDea FoliEs folder until I found the “Caoimhe” dress. This stunning and lovely black  white dress with its pink petals just was what I had in mind. To break the lovely and playfull look, I decided to go heavy on the makeup.

It was kinda fate when Malicia Paython, owner and designer of Silken Moon, showed me one of her releases for the skin fair. It starts tomorrow, the 15th of march, and there you will find the “Go Faster Nun”. The “Go Faster Nun” has different options to wear it. You can wear it as a full with the upperbody connected to  the face in black or you only can wear the facepart. The black mask covers the lower face from the nose down and has a black stripe up between the eyes. To make sure the full versions can be worn with the various avatar enhancements, Silken moon as well offers a Slink applier for the hands and a Lola’s Bra applier for the mesh boobies, if you like to wear them. To add back some sweet and nice I added the “Cherry Blossom” makeup with it’s sweet veins and pink flowers under the left eye.

To add a bit more roughness I wanted to wear the “stp boots” from Death Row Design. I got them longer time ago and never found the right styling to add them. With the black & white striped lower leg it was the perfect addition to the “Caoimhe” dress from SoliDea FoliEs.

To make the look complete I used the “Kat” hair, made by EMO-tions. This special hair style was made for the Kattaca Challenge of  the MVW 2014 for one of the contestants. This wild and extraordianry hairstyle comes with a wonderful painter accessory that you can add if you like. For this post I skipped it as the colors did not match my idea of the black & white with some pink 😉
