dangerous times…

At this year’s Jewelry Fair AZE is introducing their new Baroque jewelry line with 3 pairs of Baroque Earring sets. The earring sets are named after cities in Imperial Hungary and defines Central European designs made famous in the 17th Century.

These are beautiful earrings and what I consider statement pieces.

The stunning gown I’m wearing is from The Muses at this months We Love Roleplay. They released 4 beautiful gowns using the same colour scheme. I love them all but settled on two and this is one of the two. I am always impressed with their work and avidly watch their blog for new releases.

2 days left of Fantasy Faire

There’s still time to get down to the fantasy faire and check out the great stuff there and what’s even better is that there probably will be little lag.

AZE has some great jewelry that’s perfect for mermaids. There is the Fluted Scallop Jewelry Set that also has a matching tiara. Then there’s the beautiful Coral & Pearls Tiara. All of these come in a variety of colours for you to choose from.

Hopscotch tells fairy tales!

Hopscotch is taking part in the Surreal Complex and went with the fairy tale theme, with her two poses, Catch Me a Star and Under the Sea.

The Catch Me a Star pose is based on the Grimm’s Sterntaler fairy tale. It is a pose with a wearable prop of stars, and you can choose between gold or silver stars.

Hopscotch @ Surreal Complex

Under the Sea is an aquarium pose prop and is based on the photography of Julie de Waroquier. Quoting Hopscotch owner Chandi Khondji: “After a while in the world of the two legged, she wanted to go back to the sea. But she and her prince had moved and there was no water around. Only the little bit of undersea world in the aquarium. Maybe this was the way home…”

The Muses and AZE Designs at Gothmas by Gaslight

The Muses, which has become one of my favourite stores in the past few months, has released 4 new gowns for Gothmas. Each gown comes in the standard mesh sizes and each comes in 10 different colours. The Muses always makes exquisite outfits and these gowns are no different. These gowns can be worn in your role-playing and I’ve found my new year’s gown in Stella.

They Live Among Us!

Horrorfest is almost over, there are only 6 days left (it ends Friday, Nov 8th). I want to take this time to thank the Horrorfest team for organizing such a great event. They’ve put a lot of hard work into this to make it run as smooth as possible and they’ve done an amazing job. Another thanks goes out to all the vendors who participated. You’ve given us all wonderful items to choose from and I know everybody appreciates it. Lastly, I want to thank all the visitors who’ve come and shopped (and will continue to do so this week) because it’s all going to such a great cause, The Epilepsy Therapy Project. So, it’s a big YAY! from me. 🙂

One of Second Life’s longest shops is Curio Obscura. I can remember back in 2007 when I first joined visiting this shop and buying a settee. You can find some of the grid’s unexpected delights at this shop and right here at Horrorfest. They charity item is the Venus Mouthface (photo 4), which 100% of proceeds goes towards it. I’m also showing Grinder Mouthface, Hungry Mouthface and Cthulhuface. All 4 items come in 6 skin tones which are retintable and reskinnable. There are rigged and non-rigged mesh of each, both for men and female.

The scariest monsters are those that live among us. They have been blending into our society for hundreds of years, disguised as ordinary citizens of the world and when our defenses are down, that’s when they strike. I happened to catch 4 photos of such creatures. So stay alert and trust no one!

Sisters of the Moon at Horrorfest

Papermoon has released the gorgeous Sisters of the Moon headpieces for Horrorfest. Sister Autumn is the exclusive with 100% of the proceeds going to the Epilepsy Therapy Project. The beautiful yellow roses are tinged with orange and bits of orange and green leaves and a yellow drop stone hangs from the centre of the piece.

At the booth you can also purchase Sister Crow, Sister Rat and Sister Deer headpieces. Sister Crow has a crow skull and horns with black chains fastening blood red flowers to each side and a tear-drop stone dangles from the beak. Sister Deer is a deer skull and antlers with wings on the side fastened with chains and pearls. And Sister Rat is a rat skull and black horns with draped pearls fastening white roses to the skull.

All 4 headpieces are perfect for all your roleplaying needs or if you just want something beautiful sitting on your head.

Storybook Saturday – Red Riding Hood

I had just finished the game “Dark Parables: The Red Riding Hood Sisters” when this week’s challenge theme was issued. Right away I knew I didn’t want to go with just the regular red riding hood story. Instead I styled my look after the game. In a nutshell, after the woodcutter killed the wolf, he took the original Red into his care and trained her to track and hunt down evil wolves. This began the order of the Red Riding Hood Sisters, a secret society of armed women that protect the surrounding forests and villages.
