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.

Addams’ Arrow

For this round of ‘Epiphany’, Addams has released the ‘Marion Hero Costume’. The gacha which costs 100L per play contains a costume body suit, boots, gloves and a mask. There’s 6 different colors you can collect with several different size options depending on which mesh body, if any, you use. You can be any type of hero you want or not a hero at all but since I pulled many of the ‘Green Rubber’ color items, I decided to mix a little Green Arrow with the Black CanaryAmaliaRainwood has really outdone herself with this fun gacha and I can only hope she’ll be doing more of these in the future.

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

There in Spirit

Are you feeling spiritual? This month’s N21 seems to think so with many colorful new releases from a wide variety of designers. Browsing through everything, the Foxes ‘Spiritualist’ outfit stood out to me most, an instant favorite. I kinda loves Foxes (and Birdy and Alchemy, damn Nina!) anyways and this new release doesn’t disappoint either. It’s fresh, colorful and comes with a dozen mix & match opportunities between the wide variety of skirts, tops and kimonos. Also featured is the ‘Shiny’ hairstyle from Tableau Vivant which comes with a new ‘Frizzy Chic’ color HUD and is available now at Shiny Shabby. Get your info on the full look below! ❤

Mystic Realms Faire Goodies

So I’m feeling rather icky at the moment and haven’t felt like doing much but *did* manage to pop over to the Mystic Realms Faire thanks to early access and I’m so grateful that I did. I’ve been a silent fangirl of Zaara for a long time, one of my very first outfits from her was this old Indian set on system layers and with flexi addons.. I loved it with all my heart but SL changed over to mesh and that particular outfit didn’t. Now however, Zaara’s come out with something similar as a full mesh outfit and I’m SO thrilled! Obviously I instantly grabbed a copy along with some other goodies from Glam Affair, Tableau Vivant and Pekka and got ready for a photoshoot because I felt inspired and excited. I’m not the world’s best photographer or editor but I’m extremely happy with this and I hope you’ll enjoy it too.
