Ring around the Rosie

Today they Bloggies took place, the Blogger and Vlogger awards done by BVN. I was nominated in quite a few categories and so when I got the taxi to the celebration event, I did throw on something as formal as possible for me – I do not own one single gown anymore – and took the ride to the Seraphim sim, where the event took place. I never expect to actually win something as the competition is huge and there are so many amazing people nominated.

A lot of people were there and it looked all very festive and classy – I again felt so miss placed *giggles*. I am not used to go to such celebrations or awards, eve if as a musician in RL we had some… I just can’t get used to it for what ever reason. When they started the announcements and who won all the categories (yes there were quite a few :P), I still felt somehow excited and nervous. Even if you never really count to win something, the hope that it nevertheless happens sticks deep inside somehow, I guess that’s human after all.

But all of a sudden I heard the speakers saying my name and I was like “Wait what?!?” and it seems, I won the Best Shoe blogger award! O…M…G…! Thank you so much for everyone that voted for me!

If I remember correctly I got a few awesome runner up placements:

Best Accessories Blogger: 1st Runner Up

Best Roleplay Blogger: 2nd Runner Up

Best Fantasy Blogger: 2nd Runner Up

Best Review Blogger: 1st Runner Up

Best Photographic Editing: 2nd Runner Up

Most Improved Blogger: 1st Runner Up

If I did name the category not exactly right, I am very sorry but when I heard my name again and again I was so excited that I might not have the 100% correct description of some of them *blushes*

Again thank you to everyone that voted for me that really means a lot to me!

But now lets take a lok at my today look as I do have some freaking, amazing designers to showcase!

Yesterday I had the honor to be asked if I would like to blog for {PSYCHO:Byts}… if I would like?!? YES!!! Certainly I would LOVE to! I do love that brand for a longer time and alraedy blogged the designs quite a few times *dances around* And her we go – my first blog as official {PSYCHO:Byts} blogger with the kick ass amazing “Nekhbet Mummy Arms” released at the Salem event. The arms are rigged for Maitreya and Legacy body only. With the huge HUD you can customize the skin, the bandages, the leather parts and the buckles. As well on the HUD you will find 3 buttons called “Whole”, “Half Sleeve” and “Hand”, which gives you even more possibilities to wear your awesome new arms.

CerberusXing and DRD have some hyper cool news as well, fir exmaple the super cool leg bandages I am wearing you can find at The Warehouse Sale event and the incredible mask, which reminded me aboutthe SAW movies , which I totally love, is one of the hunt gifts at the Hallow Manor event!

Lets have a Smoke…

Again I am coming to you with some creepy news from Madame Noir, Vegas Tattoo and DRD. The amazing statues in my back and the cool rosary you will find at the Hallow Manor event, while the creepy tongue is available at The Dark Style Fair. Lets talk about the cool statues first. The Agony statue collection contains 3 different pieces ( I will soon have a showcase of all 3 in one of my next posts) – one cooler than the others. I do love the one with the book chained against the head the most. For the background I used some of the common parts of the new “Rosewood Asylum” gacha- as well made by DRD – available at Epiphany at the moment.

The scary looking rosary from Madame Noir is connected to some sort of eye caps, which cover the eyes completely. With the HUD you can customize the caps and the pearls to 6 different colors, while you get 3 different metal options for the lines and the cross. The Tongue – available at Salon 52 – as well comes with a HUD, that allows you 7 lips colors, 4 tongue colors, 3 metal colors and 4 colors for the spikes above the lip.

An event I did discover because of Vegas Tattoo is the Panic of Pumpkin in Okinawa event. Vegas Tattoo released that cool “Death Geisha” tattoo and it perfectly matched my todays style. What I love a lot about this tattoo is, that it goes up to the chin. It gives an even darker and as well cooler look in my opinion and it isn’t that common to have a tattoo coming up so high – I love it :p As always you will get 3 different shades for your tattoo – light, medium and dark.

Damn only a few days  left until Halloween finally arrives… so much more creepy and scary ideas and so short time! *runs back to her working platform, shooting new pictures*

Wicca’s Originals @ Hallow Manor // October 2020

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!

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]

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.

Scary moments and moods! Again it was time for some creepy and horror inspired pictures *snickers*

This time it was the cool face tattoo from CURELESS[+] and the uber cool backdrop from CerberusXing that inspired me to do something dark and wicked. The “Crucifix Corridor” backdrop reminded me about a scene of the movie “The Nun” which lead me to 2 or my favorite horror movie series – Insidious and Conjuring with all its sequels and prequels. I never could decide which ones I loved more and so a little bot of all of them went into todays pictures.

You cannot make a picture with just a back drop and some face modifications, I thought and tried to put together a look that would work with what I wanted to showcase. Instantly the super awesome “Morgane Ribbon Heels” from [Gos] came to my mind. The were released for this month round of FaMESHed and I instantly fell in love with the way the ribbons reached down till the tip of the pumps. As always you get a wide range of colors with the HUD and as well the possibility to color the show and the ribbons, plus a few other details separately. I tried to show you a few possibilities above, but certainly you get way more than you can see up there 😉

For my outfit I chose and outfit I saw at the last round of ROMP, made by AsteroidBox and combined with the cool bracers from CerberusXing made the perfect look but still it looked a little bit too ‘cute’ for what I was looking for. With the cool horns from E.V.E and the evil hair from no.match I finally was satisfied with my look for what I had in mind. For the poses, always when I want to do something creepy and unusual, I went with the poses from Poseidon. I already wrote about them a couple of times, but I just cannot stop telling how awesome they are if you are looking for something that shows some action, or motions or something out of the mainstream looking.

I hope you enjoyed my little key keeper as much as I did and I will no go and watch some of the mentioned movies… maybe to get some more ideas for dark fantasy inspired pictures *wicked grin*

You are my endless disease
Die if you can if you please
Help me she lingers on and on
Now death ain’t so bad
My virus undead
[Beloved Enemy]

Most of the time we see humans being scared about undead or demons in movies and pictures… what about the thought of the undead fear the living to enter their world? That was the basic idea of todays post when I saw the “Deadly End Door”, a collaboration between CerberusXing and Insomnia Angel. Even if the hands are bloody and creepy that try to open that door from the other side, I had that imagination that this would not be the door to hell more the door from hell *snickers*

So lets take a look what the sweet little demon is wearing while she tries to hold the door from the living that try to enter her empire…

When I saw the “Anatomical Venus” gacha from CURELESS [+], I instantly did know, that I wanted to make a picture with it. Like so often, the right scenery wasn’t coming to my mind instantly and so it took a while until I did know what I wanted to do with it. When I saw the “Deadly End Door, it just fell all in place. First I thought the door would be just a part of a whole background set, but when I got it i saw it was only the door, but the colors matched the “Crucem Inverso” backdrop so perfectly that I just combined them. The huge skirt wasn’t easy to pose so I had to find poses that are not moving too much down from the hips, but as well are not too boring upwards from the hips. As so often I ended up just making some poses to express what I wanted to 😉 The whole scenery and outfit had some rich, brown tones and I wanted to add some more dramatic vibes to it. That was why I chose for red and green lights and some green smoke for the post processing of it. Even if Halloween is over already, I take the full advantage of the darker season to play with my visions and imaginations *winks* So that still won’t be the last post in that category as I really love the dark side more and more and we will see where it does push me for my next posts…

Wicca’s Originals @ Eclipse – October Never Dies

Wicca’s Originals @ Eclipse – October Never Dies // October 2019

The Emily dress is “horror chic”. The fabric and cut of the dress itself would be flattering, but something went very wrong, either with the wearer, or the tailor. It comes chained to a garotte wrapped about the neck, as well as wire and chain encircling the waist. To really make the skin crawl, both arms and the spine have a series of oversized metal ‘studs’ affixed directly to the flesh. Comes in both bloodied and ‘clean’ variations, and the fabric can be changed between 10 different colors. Emily is available for Maitreya Lara.
