Don’t Look Back!

As the title of the blog says, don’t look back! Normally Michonne and Daryl could easily handle these walkers but today they’ve got to get away and continue their search for Glenn! *coughs*. Well hopefully anyways! Jokes aside though, this pose by [IM•POSE•ABLE] is now available at the Premium Only Event and can inspire you for many situations. However upon seeing that FATE is having a 50% off sale (Happy Rezday Damien!), I rushed over to finally purchase the Michonne-like outfit in the FATEplay section and went with a The Walking Dead theme for today’s shoot!

FATE is having their 50% off sale in honor of Damien’s 12th rezday until the 16th of November, this includes FATEwear for the men, FATEstep for all your shoe-finds and FATEplay for all you role & cosplay fans!

The Premium Only Event is still going strong with many ‘Supernatural‘ themed items until the 25th of November so if you haven’t been there yet, go now, hurry!

Pound Me The Witch Drums – Happy Halloween!

“Pound me the witch drums
The witch drums
Better pray for hell, not hallelujah”

I have a thing for witches and witchcraft, always had and probably always will and I don’t just mean the stereotypical witch but the entire history and lore dating far back to Salem and even before then. I’ve always found it an interesting subject and though the show isn’t wholly accurate, it’s what drew me to the TV show ‘Salem’ recently which is well worth watching. Even better is the soundtrack “Cupid Carries a Gun” by Marilyn Manson which is what my post and title is inspired by.

Now I know we’ve still got a day before it’s officially Halloween but since I’ve got virtual celebration plans, I’m posting a day early! For my look, I got all kinds of goodies from all over the grid and tons of events and fairs. My face alone comes from about 3 different places which sounds kind of odd but it’s true! Designers all over the place have made so many wonderful things this past month leading up to Halloween and I’ve been relishing in all of it slowly putting this look together. It’s worth noting that the scarred face applier I’m wearing is a special edition from DeeTaleZ for the Trick or Treat event at AMD & Shopping District and it will only be available until November 1st so if you like it, you should hurry! IKON still has a 30% off sale going today and tomorrow on specific ‘fantasy’ eyes so that’s another thing worth checking out before time runs out.

Catwa & Izzie’s

Not long ago, Catwa released it’s very own mesh head called ‘Jessica‘ which comes with 9 different ‘mood’ animations, 4 different lash options by default, closed eyes and mouth options and much more. The facial expressions can be set to static or to play at an interval, they can react to basic emotes such as “:P” and the mouth can be set to move/talk as you’re typing. The price for this head is higher than any I’ve seen so far but given the enormous amount of features and the fact it comes with a HUD that covers all of Catwa’s hairbases, I’d say it’s worth it.

For the “Mix” event, Izzie’s has released their own line of appliers called ‘Taleah‘, made to match Catwa’s ‘Jessica’ mesh head. These appliers come in 11 different skin tones and per tone you get 4 brow options, 8 different lipsticks, 8 different eye-shadows and a freckles option. I’m really happy with this applier set because of the many different make up options since I do like to switch things up.

Please have a look below to see all make-up options from Izzie’s along with the facial expressions that are part of Catwa’s Jessica mesh head. Scroll further down for a quick style card and some limo’s to these wonderful shops.

Shiny or Shabby?

Do you feel shabby or shiny? Don’t worry if you can’t choose because the Shiny Shabby event that opens today offers you the best of both worlds. I’ve already spoiled myself with many items from all my favorite stores but let’s start off with MINA and Glam Affair for today’s post. I think it’s been 2 of 3 years since I’ve first discovered MINA at the annual Hair Fair and at first what drew me in most were the Dutch names given to her hairstyles. I’m Dutch myself and I guess anything that’s Dutch immediately stands out to me especially in a world as diverse as Second Life. Ever since, I’ve kept an eye on MINA hair and have grown to truly love not just the style of her hair but the texturing especially. High quality hair textures which nowadays always come with a materials ready version of the hair too giving it that extra shine and definition. For the Shiny Shabby event, MINA’s released a new hairstyle named Kaya, a simple and messy yet stylish updo with some lose strands coming down her face and sticking out of the bun. The type of hairdo that would match a posh blouse as well as that old raggedy favorite sweater that you should be throwing out but can’t. For the blog, I’ve paired Kaya up with a simple tank top and cardigan and I’ll probably continue wearing this hairstyle for quite a few days since it’s become an instant new favorite. Now as far as Glam Affair goes, I won’t bore you again with how much I love their skins but instead we’ll get straight to the good news. For Shiny Shabby, Glam Affair has released another series of ‘Alice’ skins this time accompanied by 12 appliers for the PXL Sweet Lips. Sweet Lips is the new mesh mouth by PXL Creations, they only have 1 style at the moment but it does come with teeth and lip piercing options so it’s definitely worth checking out. Matching the mouth to your face and skin with Glam Affairs new appliers is a breeze. I think for the first time in mesh mouth history I haven’t stood there messing with the size and the shape of my face for over an hour until I got it on right. With that said, let’s move on to ‘the look’!
