Music With Lyrics For Figure Skaters


Recent news in the World of Sports! The PyeongChang 2018 Olympics will be the first Winter Olympics to feature figure skaters performing to music with lyrics. It appears the thought process behind it is to prompt interest in the younger generation. What a memory this heralds: watching Ice Castles (1978) with Lynn-Holly Johnson and Robby Benson. Who will be the first to use the theme from Ice Castles while performing? You know it's gotta happen.

Please, don't let this feeling end
It's everything I am
Everything I want to be
I can see what's mine now
Finding out what's true
Since I found you
Looking through the eyes of love

Now, I can take the time
I can see my life
As it comes up shining now
Reaching out to touch you
I can feel so much
Since I found you
Looking through the eyes of love

And now, I do believe
That even in a storm we'll find some light
Knowing you're beside me, I'm all right
Please, don't let this feeling end
It might not come again
And I want to remember
How it feels to touch you
How I feel so much
Since I found you
Looking through the eyes of love

                                 ~~ Theme From Ice Castles, Melissa Manchester

Purple Haze Kinda Day

 Fall is about colors, just like the other seasons, there are many hidden treasures meant to be enjoyed. One of my favorite fall indulgences is swinging outside in the garden, reflecting on the year and all that has happened. Smiling as I remember those hot summer nights, the newness of spring and looking forward to the magic of winter, all while enjoying the gorgeous art that mother nature has painted for us.

Mistique created the fantastic landscaping items in this post. Included is the Planted Bowl which comes in finishes of old, rusty or new, Myalis Tree which comes in yellow, teal or pink, Garden Bench which comes in brown, green, or stone, and the Flower Bunch which comes in red, purple or pink


This is also when many change hairstyles, darkening their hair, growing it out to keep their neck warm, or simply bringing on a new look for the holidays. I've chosen a rich plumb color to compliment the new skin I am wearing.

The lovely North skin by 7 Deadly s[K]ins will be making her debut soon ( check event wall at main store). This skin comes in two skin box choices one with 7 pale skins and the other with 7 tanned/darker skins. She is a skin modeled after the Laqroki Nyx bento mesh head. An Omega applier, the skin is applied to both Face and body at once. Also available is a fantastic shape to be worn with this skin. Worn here is the caramel tone from box 1.

 Mesh body parts worn:
Maitreya Lara Body 4.1 
 Catwa Catya head


Banana Banshee created these great Neko eyes which include applier huds for Lelutka, Catwa, Omega/ Genesis ( including bento eyes), and a pair of scripted mesh eyes. You can even texture these eyes separately for a great feral look.

 Sn@tch created the sexy Gwynn Hair as one of the new releases this week. This great style comes in rigged and unrigged versions and your choice of 6 different color packs.

 VENGE created the amazing lashes called, Splat. This great exclusive Darkness Monthly item comes in a 6 color pallete Catwa applier 


Indulge Temptation has a couple of great makeup items for us. The Soft & Sweet Lipstick comes in a choice of 12 packages of 5 lipsticks each with appliers for Catwa. An exclusive at The Makeover Room Nov 1-30 . Also the Night Out Eyeshadows Catwa appliers with a choice of 12 packages of 10 eyeshadows each. An exclusive at The Avenue Nov 1-25

Xanadu

When I was a kid I wanted to be Olivia Newton-John, she was beautiful, classy, elegant. She could sing, dance, and act and she had an awesome Aussie accent. So when I was putting together this scene what else could I name it but Xanadu?

When I saw what ChicModa was releasing for Once Upon a Nightmare I knew immediately what I wanted to pair it with, this was one of the easiest outfits I’ve ever put together. Once Upon a Nightmare is a main store event, which means you go to the store that is participating to get the items. Go to any participating designer to grab a HUD or join the Once Upon a Nightmare Group and get to shopping. Bonnie comes with a standard color HUD and a special Halloween HUD, I was going to do just the Halloween prints but then decided to play with the color HUD as well and much to my delight the Halloween prints stayed in place. I was super excited to mix and match my top to my leggings.
Top (new)ChicModa – Bonnie – Once Upon a Nightmare
Marketplace
These leggings are from Riot’s debut round at Collabor88, like bloggers it seems that designers have a wish list of events they’d like to participate in and I am so happy for Riot that she made it into Collabor88. These leggings come in 30 individual colors and a fatpack with 5 additional, special Collabor88 only colors.
Pants (new)Riot – Sophie – Collabor88
Marketplace This pose from Nantra is available at The Liaison Collaborative and comes with 6 poses plus mirrors built into a hideable pose stand. These are bento poses and as such do require a bento viewer and bento-enabled hands.

A roller skating photo needs the perfect backdrop and who else but Astralia could answer my need? This vintage gacha was released a few months ago but good news, you can grab them at the main store. The gacha includes 4 commons and one rare.

Marketplace
Skates: N-Core – Skates Black Marketplace

Beusy created this bento hair for Kustom9 and unfortunately, the poses I used didn’t lend way to showing you the bento abilities. The style HUD comes with 3 hairstyles; horns, buns, and none. You get all hair colors for one low price.
Hair (new): Beusy – Blair – Kustom9
Marketplace
Spirit is also at Kustom9 with a gorgeous skin gacha, there is one for Lelutka and one for Catwa, this is shown on the Catwa Catya bento mesh head.

These stunning eyes are a release from Mesange and per usual have 15 colors to choose from or a fatpack. Mesh and system eyes are included as well as a HUD that works with your Omega compatible eyes.

Last but not least is this super cute new polish from Dark Passions – Koffin Nails, available at The Dark Style Fair this HUD comes in 10 fun colors.

I Got A Brand New Pair Of Rollerskates


Well, i got a brand new pair of rollerskates 
You got a brand new key. 
I think that we should get together 
And try them out, you see' 
I been looking around awhile; 
You got something for me 
Oh, i got a brand new pair of rollerskates 
You got a brand new key. 

                 ~~ Janis Joplin

I've decided that roller skates are necessary for touring haunted houses. Be careful on the stairs! But they're great for fast getaways from creepy stuff.
