Take Me To Church

She tells me ‘worship in the bedroom’
The only heaven I’ll be sent to
Is when I’m alone with you
I was born sick, but I love it
Command me to be well
Amen, Amen, Amen

Yes, I will never get enough of that song and it WORKS for this post!

One store I’ve fallen in love with since my return to Second Life has been /anxiety/. Initially purely for their quality backdrops (and as a massive Suicide Squad fan, they had me quite easily), but their latest releases for skyboxes and furniture have been pure love and artistry. If not a little sinful where today’s blog post is concerned. 😉

For this round of ROMP, /anxiety/ released the aptly named ‘Blasphemy‘ set. Featuring a lounger that can be purchased as a PG version or an Adult version, and they’re currently running a 25% discount on the Fatpack for the duration of the event. The lounger has its own color-change HUD with 4 different options and is filled with plenty of smooth bento poses. To highlight the set is a gorgeous cabinet with several bibles, a cross, an incense burner, and a scourging whip, and just in case you weren’t feeling blasphemous enough already there is a side-table with decorative shackles and a bible touched by a bloody hand. As a finishing touch, you can buy a set of matching ankle & wrist cuffs that come with additional poses and a texture HUD to change the metals.

However, for the purpose of this blog (I prefer the ease of static poses), I used a Pose Fair Exclusive by K&S. Oh, and as luck would have it, I was recently tidying up my inventory when I found that hairstyle with the habit. Even joked to my fiance that I’d never have use for it… the guys over at /anxiety/ musta heard me. 😉 Anyway, have a look at the credits below and then make your way to this round of ROMP which runs until May 25th.

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.
