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.

Come Away With Me

And I want to wake up with the rain
Falling on a tin roof
While I’m safe there in your arms
So all I ask is for you
To come away with me in the night
Come away with me

Ready for Abduction

“You’re from a whole other world
a different dimension
You open my eyes
and I’m ready to go lead me into the light”

A collaboration with the ingenious Brennan from The Saints of Fashionation featuring items from Kustom9, Collabor88 and this amazing store called Shu Mesh. I’ve been to Shu Mesh in the past and I can honestly say it’s one of the best stores on the grid for high quality mesh sci-fi and cyber armor and accessories. Their items are mind blowing and if you’re feeling even the tiniest spark of curiosity, you need to go and check out their in-world store. As for Collabor88, keep in mind that this month’s round is almost over so if you haven’t been yet you might want to hurry!
