It is incredible how many amazing terrifying designs jump on the grid at the moment! I know why I keep saying, the actual season is my personal Christmas season *grins wickedly*

At the moment I am watching TWD again and when I saw the new mask from DRD, it instantly reminded me about the “‘Whisperers”. With the flesh and metal parts it is a perfect combination of a scary, horrifying mask. The details are amazing crisp, but that we already know from DRD *winks*

For the top I wanted something rotten, ripped too and CerberusXing had the perfect design for that. Matching the basic apocalyptic scenery, I wanted some cool and special weapons and strapped, used shorts to still let the amazing stompers from DRD shine.

The collar is one of our latest releases for the Hallow Manor event and made the perfect finish for my look today, but I still would love to drag your attention to the closeup below… The incredible cool eyes are made by Madame Noir for the Salon 52 event. Together with the messy eye-shadow and lipstick from CAZIMI they completely kicked my imagination about what this woman could have been gone through, before she ran from that huge fire explosion. Certainly such a strong and powerful woman cannot be without a tattoo and it was no question what ink master she chose when she got it – Vegas Tattoo!

“Because they are dreamy, and endless, and magical”

Do not stare directly into his eyes!” she warned, in an accent I couldn’t place.
“Why not?” I said, but she was already too late. I was staring directly into his eyes too.
“Because they are dreamy, and endless, and magical. And then when you learn what a terrible boy he is, your heart will turn into a black husk of doom.”
I blinked off the spell of the boy’s eyes.
“Wait, what?”

Wicca’s Originals @ Hallow Manor // October 16th – November 1st

The Lamia collar by Wicca’s Originals is another unnerving creation, perfect for a monstrous horror styling in the upcoming season of spooks. Named after the woman of Greek mythology, who was cursed with eternal sleeplessness for sleeping with Zeus and having had her own children slain, Lamia went completely mad and rapidly devolved into a child-eating monster. The legend of the Lamia became a kind of ‘bogeyman’, a story to frighten the young. Now you can share a piece of that curse, if you dare. This collar appears to bolt onto the upper torso, completely replacing the neck all the way to the skull, or you can leave the head absent entirely for a truly disturbing look. Strange, otherworldly ‘teeth’ emerge from many points on the collar, as if hungry for the flesh of any who are unfortunate enough to get close enough to be bitten and pulled in, although these can be turned off. It leaves one wondering what terror, exactly, the collar is covering up. The optional barbed wire tells a story of its own, of some brave soul who tried to strangle or contain the creature within, although that story does not end well. The Lamia Collar comes in clean or bloodied variations, spikes and barbed wire optional, and 10 color patterns for the collar itself are available via a HUD. It can be worn with the Maitreya, Legacy, Belleza, Slink Hourglass & Physique bodies.

Event Location: Hallow Manor

For those how love hunts – Hallow Manor has a hunt going on as well and contributed booties matching the Lamia collar as prize!

“I am the shadow on the moon at night, filling your dreams to the brim with fright.”

RL sometimes really sucks… especially if it eats up more time as planned and it is not on your own to control it. I recently had a change in my RL job and the new association I am working for doesn’t seem like it is as promised when I had my interview there. I am sure many of you know that if you have your interview, everything sounds nice, all questions you had are answered positive, kinda like to good to be true and when you signed your contract, some things surprisingly change… I am sure I will work it out, but at the moment it just pulls on my nerves, it is time consuming and annoying.

It does hold me back from talking as much pictures as I planned and it does throw me back in my planned posts as well. But I will do my best to at least let all my dark visions for Halloween come true in time 😉

Today I do have some news from the mega cool Samhain event. It is a fantastic event, awesome venue and amazing designers do take part. My pictures today do showcase the incredible cool head piece from “CerberusXing”, the heavy arm chains from “Static”, the cool decor set from “Disorderly” and the amazing bra of the lingerie set from “The Rotting Lab”.

The uber-awesome face tattoo is a main store new release by “Eclipse Art Studio”, while you can find the amazing arms tattoo at the “Vegas Tattoos” main store.

I hope you enjoy the dark seas as much as I do – “I am the shadow on the moon at night, filling your dreams to the brim with fright.” — [Oogie Boogie]

Wicca’s Originals @ Samhain // October 2020

Wicca’s Originals @ Samhain // October 10th – November 2nd

The Artio Gloves by Wicca’s Originals are high macabre fashion. The fingers of the gloves themselves are tipped with long, curled nails, which may just as well be a part of the wearer, tearing through the material and telling all around that the creature they see is something not-quite-human. Creatures of the night, however, still care about style. Covering from fingertip to upper arm, the glove material is patterned in an unsettling way, hinting at dark veins or scaled, peeling flesh underneath, and yet still would be perfectly at come complementing a torn ballroom gown, or perhaps one’s funeral dress. Gloves and claws come in 10 colors each, which can be mixed and matched separately, and fit the Maitreya, Legacy, and Hourglass bodies.

Event Location: Samhain

Wicca’s Originals @ The Dark Style Fair // October 9th – 31st 2020

Just in time for the Halloween season, the Jethro Gloves by Wicca’s Originals are here to deliver an unsettling but fashionable style of glove. These gloves cover most of the way up the arm, helping cover up any blood stains that might catch on one’s bare arms. They show signs of tearing, the outer fabric peeled away in strips to reveal the patterend material underneath. Whether these tears were self-inflicted by an unstable mind, or whether the tears were caused by the frantic struggle of a victim, there is no telling. The gloves provide each fingertip with a long, curved claw, showing the more feral side of the wearer, promising sweet pain and tormented flesh to those who get too close. The glove fabric and metal claws come in 10 colors each which can be mixed, and fit the Maitreya, Legacy, and Hourglass bodies.

Time Warp!

TUNES

It’s astounding
Time is fleeting
Madness takes its toll
But listen closely
Not for very much longer
I’ve got to keep control
I remember doing the Time Warp
Drinking those moments when
The blackness would hit me
And the void would be calling
Let’s do the Time Warp again

[Rocky Horror Show]

And again we are at Mainframe with the designs of todays post. I really love that event, it gives you so much crazy and awesome things to play with. Today I wanted to post something about that super amazing time portal from Ex Machina. It is a huge design, so I had to think about a way to showcase the full creation. I didn’t want to just stay in front of the portal and started playing with the idea of being swallowed by it :p – That was the outcome of that and I really enjoy that thought.

Suppertime!

What happens if you have 3 different designs you want to showcase and you try to combine them – I love challenges like that :p

Today it was the new ears from CerberusXing called “Sceleratis Ears” – they are available at the TMD event for August – an add-on for those ears from Nefekalum Tattoos and that cool tongue from unstable.I didn’t yet wanna give up on my new scars from E.A.Studio either, so that was quite a fun challenge to make that all work together. In the middle of the night – my brain must have been already fried and  I was hungry – all of a sudden the idea for this picture grew in mind… so yes… here we go!

Venomous Poison

TUNES

Your cruel device
Your blood, like ice
One look, could kill
My pain, your thrill
Your mouth, so hot
Your web, I’m caught
Your skin, so wet
Black lace, on sweat
I hear you calling and it’s needles and pins
I wanna hurt you just to hear you screaming my name
Don’t want to touch you but you’re under my skin
I wanna kiss you but your lips are venomous poison
You’re poison, running through my veins
You’re poison
I don’t want to break these chains
Poison

One look, could kill
My pain, your thrill
I wanna love you but I better not touch
I wanna to hold you, but my senses tell me to stop
I wanna to kiss you but I want it too much
I wanna taste you but your lips are venomous poison
You’re poison, running through my veins
You’re poison
I don’t want to break these chains
Poison

Father did you miss me,
Been locked up a while.
I got caught for what I did but took it all in style.
Laid to rest all my confessions I gave way back when.
Now I’m versed in so much worse,
So I am back again, and he said

For the love that I make, I’m going to hell!

Gettin’ heavy with the devil, you can hear the wedding bells.
