There are things that leave me speechless, searching for words. This is one of them. I have known Eku Zhong for quite some time now and always thought she was an amazingly funny, cheerful and helpful person. To find out that she is so sick it is threatening her life was humbling, putting the daily grievances so many of us have into perspective. Once Eku gave the permission for it, there is now an event in the planning to help her get a prosthesis so her skull does not accidentally kill her. I wish I was kidding. You can read more about all this in the Unhinged blog. While preparing for the event, we’ve been taking promo pictures with skulls. I snapped this one while posing for Elysium Hynes, who is the blogger organizer for the event. …fine, guess I can wield the title as well, but we all know I’m mainly just proofreading texts with a red pen. The event will be from November 15th to December 15th, it’s going to be a gacha festival with the obvious skull theme.… Read the rest


You all know i love events, i love having all of my favourite designers in one place, like a huge Fair or Carnival, i even love more themed events, i even like more events with a common cause or purpose, be it just thru their theme, or for a specifc thing, like  charity. But i like event better when i can help out my friends, or simply work with them, I´ve known Eku Zhong of Culprit for a few years, we met thru SLU and since the day i added her to my friends list my life got a little richer, mostly richer with laughs and wise advise, because she is the kind of person who will make you smile no matter how shitty your day is, and now i have a chance to help out a little in making Eku smile, Nephilaine Portagonist explains the whole situation here better than i ever could on this post: A love letter for Eku <3 but basically and in summary Eku needs to have surgery to the skull that protects that amazing little and quick brain of hers, and this is when friends gather to help and try to make the whole situation affordable for Eku and her partner Yure.… Read the rest

Mint Chocolate

There isn’t actually any chocolate — mint or otherwise —  in this post, the colour combination just reminded me of it so much that I got cravings for some. The look itself is all about autumn when you do already want to wear more for the cold and rain, but don’t have to wrap yourself up in heavy coats just yet. The pictures are taken in SLOW sim where you can also find NODe+ shop that sells these umbrellas. They have arm poses as usual, open and close and even come with rain, of which there was plenty in the sim. I tried to catch some drier moments for pictures, so ignore the fact that she’s prancing about with an umbrella without a drop of rain on the water. There’s several new releases here: Muriel boots by Dare Designs, Softpaw Glasses by ::: Krystal :::, Tiffany hair by Alice Project, new group gift earrings by Maxi Gossamer and the latest fishing outfit by Sn@tch. The fishing outfit comes with stockings, shoes and earrings, but I wanted warmer tights and boots for this look.… Read the rest

Dementia Has No Name

The title is a combination of the name of the first lingerie set, Dementia by Dare Designs, and the collar and the jacket by Zibska called NoName. Dementia is a new release with several layer options, also considerably skimpier ones, but I felt like styling these in a more vintage fashion. After all, it’s soon time for Vintage Fair! Why yes, yes they are skulls in the collar and jacket. I’d imagine either could be styled into a very fashionable bad-ass look, but after I saw the Maeve lingerie below and the Dementia above, I knew I wanted to take vintage pin-up pictures. There’s something irresistible in the aesthetic: a mix of class, enticement and attitude. Zibska’s jacket, collar and Maeve-lingerie are available in Vanity Fair, which will run until 11th August. Better hurry over and check it all out before the other events begin: it’s going to be a busy month.

World Goth Day Fair!

World Goth Day is coming, and a group of designers are celebrating the event by coming together to run a week of Events, Hunts, Parties, Gachas and Shopping in support of the Sophie Lancaster Foundation Charity.
World Goth Day is May 22nd, yet the Goth Fair is taking over from today until MAY 31st. There will be a mass of events of all kinds, but I bring you details of the shopping!!!
The Sophie Lancaster Foundation was set up in 2009, following the horrific murder of a young girl who was killed by a gang because she was dressed in a gothic style. The charity aims to educate and campaign, so that hate crime can include the way people dress. I personally am very behind this campaign, even if you are not into the gothic scene, there are many reasons to support this charity – no one should be hated against just because of the way they dress! There are plenty of items available at the fair that could be great additions to any wardrobe and the carnival feel as you wander round the sims, or sit on the elephant looking pretty is a worthwhile experience to support an amazing charity!… Read the restwgfair201210

Oh My Goth!

May is the month for goths this year! The WGD Nightstalker Hunt has already started and runs through the whole month. The starting point is here. The World Goth Fair will open on 15th May, so the hunt is an excellent way to kill time while waiting. I took the picture before my week of no internet, so none of it is from the hunt or fair, but I wanted to pose with the posters, so pose I did~ Skin: LAQ ~ Elena 04 [Pale] Glow | Hair: A&Y Bunker – Aeon hair 2 black | Lip stripe: Nuuna’s Skins – AstroGlam Red Makeup | Lip color: M.O.C.K.

Back to our origins

This post was gonna be a lot different, but Culture Shock starts tomorrow and the chosen charity for this event is Médecins Sans Frontières, so i wanted to show a small preview, and that brings us to another point that was brought up on plurk yesterday, i love when discussion on a subject starts there sometimes, especially when it´s about blogging, since i am still sort of new at this. The subject was basically how many event items do you actually need to blog one event? I believe it only takes one to be honest, show me a little of an event and i will want more, i don´t need 20/30 items, that might not go so well together, from it to want to visit, i need one good item, and slurls, and a link to a blog, that´s all i need, just show me how i can fit in that item with things i already have, even from other events, show me what you got, and i will enjoy it. So here i am showing one item from Culture Shock only for now, this beautiful Turban from 22769 mixed in with a lot more things from other events, or that i just had about my inventory, and that seemed to fit together.… Read the rest

Aerosteam Adrenaline

I’m sure it’s no surprise that one of my favourite forms of steampunk is the airship piracy one. It combines the dashing romantic piracy with flying and you all know how I love all things related to flying. The latest release by Dare Designs, Adrenaline, was the perfect uniform for my pirate captain. The rows of buttons and the shoulderpads just called for one. It comes with boots, but I used these overknee lassitude & ennui ones instead. The black snakeskin simply spoke to me. I doubt the outfit was meant solely for pirates, the hat is my own addition. (Old hunt gift by AZE Designs.)  I just tend to look at things and see characters. This also provided the perfect opportunity to remind everyone that Steam the Hunt ends soon. Just a few more days to pick up, say, this fantastic mini-airship by Bondar-Foehammer Aerosteam Co. As for the make-do hangar I simply used one of the gorgeous skyboxes by Spessart and made some of the walls and ceiling transparent.… Read the rest

Something Old, Something New

I wasn’t going to blog today, but then I bought a coat. Then I needed a fun place to pose in. Then I glanced at the Great SL Photo Hunt list and… well, here we are. Three themes in two pictures: #76 something old and #77 something new, both happening in a version of #9 you at the Eiffel Tower. The traditional Eiffel Tower is situated in Les Champs-Elysees and I paired it with this gorgeous Dark December dress by Dare Designs. It is at the moment in one of his Fashion for Life vendors, so go shop while the event is still running! I’d also like to point out that Lassitude & Ennui stays in style through the centuries: both girls are wearing Jackal’s boots! The more modern version of Eiffel Tower can be found here. It’s called Eiffel Tower 2012 and it’s created by Colpo Wexler. It was quite a sight and contrast to the old Paris sim. As for the coat — that is the thing that started this all. New mesh trench coats by Aoharu. I want more mesh clothes that go for the slinky shape instead of adding poofy layers over the system shape.… Read the rest

Twisted Sacrifice

Why yes, yes this is yet another Twisted Hunt post. It’s not my fault there’s so much awesome arcane stuff! There was about gazillion drow skins, too, so of course I had to make at least one of those. This particular drow seems to be a mix between an assassin and a priestess, perhaps an unholy woman warrior of sorts… The dragon with the ruins and hoard is by Curvasive Designs and was absolutely irresistible as a background setting. The outfit with a hood and mantle (and many other options not visible here) is by Dare Designs and worked oh so well with the skin and ears by The Little Bat. The tattoos are a part of the skin. I added an altar by Roawenwood and a collection of obvious arcane substances by The Fooding to the setting, to appeal to the sacrificing priestess side of the drow. I couldn’t resist the dagger by Sacred Fantasy, though, so I let her play with sharp objects as well. Disclaimer: no prim babies — two-headed monsters or otherwise — were harmed during these shoots, they’re just posing!… Read the rest

Scorched - a sexy pink latex lingerie set with a burlesque feel to it.

Ophelia - a very sexy black lacey outfit you can wear anyway you like.

Dark December - With two short skirt versions and two long skirt versions, this is a very versatile and sexy outfit.

Joliette - Pants or skirt, bra top or crop top, the choice is super sexy and all yours.

Thief of Time

Fashion for Life has started and this year the sims are themed around time. I got a giggle out of finding Finnish aika amongst them, although the event itself is of course very serious. I’m sure you all know about the old Relay for Life events, benefitting American Cancer Society. This is them, just rebranded. In the spirit of time and finding the cure, I give you a thief of time: stealing it for those who need it most. The latex Scorch outfit by Dare Designs makes the perfect look for a superhero fighting cancer. The precious time in her hands is actually a ring from the “It’s Time” set by Tres Beau. As for the arcane portal she uses to travel through space and time, it’s the Twisted Hunt prize by Snow Bound. It comes with smaller portals and instructions how to link them together to use it all as actual portal system in your home sim. While she works to give people more time it’s up to others to find the cure. Go shop. It’s definitely worth it.… Read the rest
