The world is just a little less pink now.

Hi! This is Lola Hienrichs I have not written on this blog for quite some time but I have some news to share with those of you who still follow Willow’s blog. A couple of weeks ago, Willow passed away peacefully in her sleep. Willow was the big sister I never had and we had been friends outside of SL for over the past 15 years. She loved everything PINK and it was the one color I loathed LOL but now I wish I can see her prancing around me in SL in her little pink outfits looking all gothy cute. She had a unique eye when it came to fashion and her style was admirable to many of her viewers. She made taking pictures in SL look so easy and I admired her talent for finding the best windlight and poses to compliment each outfit. This will be the last blog post on Dead as We, I can’t possibly keep posting on here any longer. I thought about it but this blog was always her lovechild and I was always just her annoying little sister.

If you see anything super pink, creepy, and gothic……Please think of Willow. That’s how she would want to be remembered. Us goth girls like our creepiness.

I leave you guys with the song that this blog is named after. You may have not known this but Willow was a huge fan of the band “Negative” which is a Finnish Rock band.

Adoness & Beautiful Freak @ World Goth Fair

It is that time of year when us goths get to revel in all the new designs from our favorite designers as well as discover new designers. World Goth Fair has been around in SL for a few years and it is scheduled to open its doors on the 15th of May. The charity that benefits from this event is the Sophie Lancaster Foundation. If you are not familiar with the back-story I’ll give you a brief summary. Sophie, a goth, was living in London and one day a group of teenagers decided to beat her and her friend to death, just because they were perceived as goth. This is a huge issue in Europe and our donations can help those in need who have been afflicted by such beatings.

So let me divulge into the awesomeness I have been able to grab so far. I have a beautiful dress from adoness, its a classic victorian dress that is perfect for steampunk RP. Adoness also has 2 jewelry sets available but I am only showcasing the diamond set, there is also ruby available at her booth.

In the above pic, I accented the face with makeup and eyes that are to be released by Beautiful Freak at World Goth Fair. I swear there are a ton of colors to choose from and I love the doodle effect around the eyes.

Last but not least a full view of the dress. You can see how beautiful the texturing is and a portion of the hoop skirt.

Nomine Clothing

When I first joined SL Nomine was about the only store I could find alternative skins. Munchflower Zaius is one of the grid’s best skin designers, my skin folder tells me that *hah* :). But if you don’t know by now, she also designs some very nice clothing, for both men and women. I’m going to focus on some of my favouties designed my Munch.

Munchflower designs some very unique pieces and knows how to drape the female body. There’s a sensualness to her clothing. I love wearing everything she creates. Though most of her clothing tends to be on the alternative side, especially goth, as you will see below you will also find some items for the more modest of us. 🙂

The Milkmaid Dress reminds one of a farmgirl, but the sheerness and cut of the top belies the innocence. All of Munch’s clothing comes on all layers possible and if you’re a bit modest can wear a couple of layers so the top isn’t so sheer. The dress does come in several colours.

The Promenade Gown takes us back to the 1900’s but the sheerness of the piece removes the austerity the dress could have become. The neckpiece, a prim of lace and feathers is gorgeous. I loved this dress as soon as I put it on and has become a favourite to wear.

nomine

The Horrid Sharkfucker Dress is a mid-calf length sundress in black only. Something for us goth’s to wear in summer finally LOL. I would love to have this dress in RL, it’s perfect, cotten and lace and I like the length. Not enough mid-calf dresses or skirts around SL.

nomine

The Siobhan Dress is my all-time favourite from Nomine. I wear this dress all the time. Full length black gown with a bit of lace at the cuffs and a square cut neckline, that clings to my curves in all the right places.

nomine

The Dust Storm Dress is a cute babydoll for my gothic soul. Even us goth girls like ruffles sometimes. Munch throws in a pair of over-the-knee socks for that naughty girl look.

nomine

Medea is a futuristic outfit coming in a few dark, gothic colours. I adore this and love wearing it with thigh high boots. The neckpiece is awesome. As you can see below, the piece is very sexy and needs a confident attitude to carry it off. No shrinking wallflower will be able to wear this.

nomine

My last gown is called Delilah. A sheer net body suit with leather pants and long leather skirt. I like to detach the skirt and put on big chunky boots for another sexy look as well. If you like to show off your body you’ll love this gown.

Lolapop! – Jewelry Fair 2010

Lolapop! is one of the many jewelry designers showing their wares at this years Jewelry Fair. I have been following the work of owner Lola79 Hienrichs from the beginning of her first opening her shop. She’s always pushing herself to learn new building techniques and texturing and it shows in her latest designs you’ll find at the Jewelry Fair.

More Sn@tch is a Good Thing

With the amount of work Ivey has been doing the past few months to get ready for her fashion show and the build for her halloween event (which was awesome last year), she still manages to put out weekly some beautiful and creative designs. I’d like to share with you some of her newest paired along with some of her older items and show you why you should be shopping at SN@TCH.

Up first is a dead sexy little number called Hot Shot. It’s a cute little baby doll dress with a sexy halter top. As with all of Ivey’s designs, it comes on all layers and includes 4 or 5 colours. I’m also wearing her new necklace, Borderline Pearls.

Snatch fashion

The Traumatic Skirts are my favourite skirts for the season. I love high-waisted pants and skirts and this one is gorgeous. The black skirt I’m wearing is part of the Traumatic Finish set which comes with 5 velvet tops (which I am not wearing). She also has a separate set of just the skirts with 7 different colours (black not included). The top is one of her Crochet Tank Tops and I’m also wearing her beautiful Languid Gothic Choker and Earring set.

Snatch fashion

Pray for Rain is a ribbed-knit and very short corset style dress (and comes in 6 colours in the set). And as you can see here I’ve paired it with leggings and boots to turn it into a glam-punk look. The plaid leggings come from an earlier mega fatpak of leggings Ivey put out and my favourite Buffy Combat boots. (No I’m not hiding Ivey in the trunk ;b)

Snatch fashion

Is she a good girl on the wrong side of town? I don’t know but the low-cut, sheer cargo sweater may tell a different story. The Precious Cargo Sweater comes in 10 colours and on all layers (as usual). I’ve worn the Cargo Skirt along with it. I love this skirt and wish I had it in real life. It’s great for pulling on and running around doing chores. Also it’d be great to wear to school.

Snatch fashion

Lastly are the Fangbanger Velvet Pants and the Gelato Halter top. I call these my rocker pants. I can just picture someone like Sheryl Crow wearing these while on stage. The set includes 8 hot colours. I can’t say enough about the Gelato Halter top. I love the ruffle and Ivey’s chosen some beautiful colours for it; all bright and vibrant. My favourite colour is the butter colour (not worn here).

Snatch fashion

These are just some of the things you’re missing out on if you haven’t been to Snatch yet. So go check it out!
