I’ve seen belts as a skirt, but never belts as a top. I’m not even sure what to call this, it sort of looks like a corset as well. I am wearing it as is, but I could see this with a shirt underneath, maybe something a pirate would wear, or some sort of warrior maiden. This is the new offering from Plastik, to be released at the mainstore. There are 5 galactic colourations, which have to be my favs of the series. There is also a large assortment of other colours and patterns, so it is worth a look, if you want a beltstraptopcorsetthingy.
I had a pleasant surprise today, when Dulce Secrets released some new skins. Not just any skins, but new, alternatively toned skins. That is the great thing about Halloween, I can stock up all month on all the oddly coloured skins, and it normally lasts me a good while.
The skins were a bonus, unexpected, but the real reason for me blogging today was this Necklace from Lost Junction, which is currently at Romp. I can’t say I had ever been to the event, because that is not my scene in sl.… Read the rest
Collabor88 is full of the beautiful and macabre this month. I am so very much in love with the Vanity Hair contributions especially as it works so well with the headpiece from Zenith. I imagine it would also work well with hats and other hair accessories.
Zenith’s brocade corset and lace skirt for Collabor88 is a perfect composition of the Gothic aesthetic, corsets, ribbons and lace in a bold and sexy form that contours and highlights the body.
I added fun boots from Lassitude & Ennui – a pair i have had for a couple years. They have the kind of intricate detail that defines the aesthetic.
I added some fun lace cuffs from katat0nik, Here you get another view of the wonderful hair from Vanity Hair.
I am also wearing makeup from Glam Affair for Collabor88, as well as the chocker and mask from Zenith for Collabor88.

The other night, !ndustry had a stoplight party and I was thoroughly confused as to what it all meant. So, upon asking I was informed that green meant DTF lol, yellow meant 50/50 chance and red means taken, no go, stop rie now…so I had to change as I was wearing none of these colors. Luckily I was able to change and my clothing actually snapped into place instead of hovering in the atmosphere, giving the impression I was SUPER DTF lol. It was a fun time, danced with friends and took my mind off my mind for a bit…so to speak. If you've never been to !ndustry, maybe stop by sometime. Great events, great music and great people!

This poor man had no idea when he was in for when he agreed to be a guest at her home for dinner. Being a romantic young man he thought there would be a candle light dinner, he may have been mistaken. Since his momma taught him never to arrive empty handed he helped himself to some of the roses in his neighbors garden. She would never notice a couple missing blooms.
Boy was he wrong! Before he was even given the chance to present his date with the flowers he dropped dead right on the spot. Now anyone looking in on this scene may have assume the pretty lady who was his date may have done something malicious with the knife in her hand, but that wasn't so.
Just look at that face. Does that look like the face of a killer. Sure she happens to be holding a knife, but it is clean, and so is she. And to add to that there doesn't seem to be a single sign of a stab wound of any kind on the young man. Did he simply have a heart attack or was it something more mysterious and underhanded? Stay tuned to find out what really happened to this young man...… Read the rest
This month’s Collabor88 will open at midnight with an exciting theme centered on the delightfully macabre Burtonesque palette and mood board. I am sure there are some people in the world who do not like Tim Burton’s work, but they are probably unhappy. I headed off to Deadman’s Island
, a haunted sim with a beautiful ghost ship. I think Tim Burton would like it a lot.
I think Tim Burton should do a film about las calaveras
, the happy, delightful sugar skulls that mark the celebration of All Saint’s Day in Mexico. The Day of the Dead is not Halloween, in many ways it is the opposite of Halloween. After all, Halloween focuses on fear of the dead and the Mexican celebration of el día de los muertos
is a welcoming visit with the much beloved dead. Families visit the cemetery and spend the day with their dead, leaving ofrendas
(offerings) such as food and wine and the lovely pan de los muertos
. They also will place photos and even a soap, mirror and razor so the dead can freshen up for the coming year.… Read the rest
Baiastice has released a stunning dress with a gorgeous devour skirt. I love how it goes from opaque to sheer and how the hem is cut away to follow the pattern of the stamped print. It comes in gorgeous colors and I was at a loss which one to wear until I decided to wear a hat – and finding the hat made my color choice for me.
I went to Lost Stars
which has some seriously creepy sound effects. I did not realize that at first and then I was walking up this fallen column and heard what must have been a zombie or a ghoul. I was so surprised I jumped, sliding my hand on the trackpad and dumping my lovely new dress and these gorgeous hot pink stilettos in the drink. Luckily they are insta-dry.
This gorgeous hat from Purple Moon was what made me decide on the blue dress. It came with a silver or a gold peacock and I went with the silver. I love silver and blue because it makes me think of the moonlight. The jewelry is from Paper Couture, a gorgeous diamond parer that is fit for royalty – of fashionistas.… Read the rest
My typist took some time away and I used my free time to unpack some items in my new house. Honestly I admit, I didn’t mind being left alone, I had forgotten how many amazing kitchen items I own – I am going to end up having to make some hard choices as I can’t possible have them all out at once.
Cold breezes have started to flow across the little islet where I am now, and this coat dress from THE CHAPTER FOUR is perfect for cool days and colder nights.
But now that she’s back looks like I’m about to get back to work – shopping!
I hope everyone has had some amazing days! I’m baaaaaaaaaack!

There is a new original mesh fashion store, Azuchi
. They have been making some great fantasy items at various events like We <3 Roleplay and more traditional items at shiny shabby. More recently they have this new dress, Cate, out at the current round of uber
. This dress comes in fitmesh for Slink and Maitreya. The textures are materials enabled and I tried my best to capture that in my picture, but I don't think I can do the texture justice. You really have to see it up close when you are moving and lights are reflecting on it to really get the full effect. Also in order to wear my curvier shape with my larger boobs, I had to separate them and move them apart so the top did not push together and distort. So if you are having that problem, you can either wear normal sized boobs or adjust the separate/join slider in your shape.
I am continuing to play with and collect skin appliers for my new Catwa
mesh head. Today I am wearing a new skin from The Skinnery

“She had an horror of rooms
she was tired ”
you can’t hide beat
When I looked in her eyes they were blue but nobody home
She could’ve been a killer
if she didn’t walk the way she do,
and she do
She opened strange doors
that we’d never close again
She began to wail jealousies scream
Waiting at the light know what I mean” – Scary Monsters, David Bowie
is an instore event that’s sort of like a hunt, but isn’t a hunt. The idea is for folks to show up in a participating store, and clock on the Ghost to see if they win a free thing. The Ghost will show a picture of the item being offered by the merchant. If you poke him a little too hard, he may not give you the item. If you poke him in ways he enjoys, then he’ll hand you a shiny new thing! If you don’t get the item, you have the option of trying your luck the next day, or you can bribe the ghost 50L to cough up the item you so desperately need.… Read the rest
Lots of newness from Apple May Designs
today. I am super excited that AMD added another fitmesh size to their designs, now they have fitmesh Maitreya as well as Belleza. My chunky pearl jewelry is also new from AMD. The pearls are color change and they change to two different colors too. Both the dress, Night Fall, and the pearl jewelry can be found in the main AMD store.
I am wearing the Catwa

I am reading The Culture of Make Believe
by Derrick Jensen. I think I will have to just buy this book and return the copy I am reading to the library. Like Wendell Berry, Jensen’s book is too rich in subject matter to just read. It will be one I want to go back to again and again. I am reading it slowly, pausing after each conclusion or big idea to think. The underlying theme is that by viewing our world as an object to possess and exploit instead of seeing it as this living, breathing subject whose existence is vital, we become alienated from the world and all sorts of other ills are natural consequences of treating everything as an object to own. The writing is beautiful and powerful and full of ideas that I want to remember
. He wrote that ““we have a need for enchantment that is as deep and devoted as our need for food and water.”
I think this is true. Wonder and awe are thinks we yearn for and they are most often found outdoors in the natural world.
There is wonder, too, in Second Life®, at the beautiful worlds and stunning landscapes of our virtual world.… Read the rest
