Psycho Circus

I believe I’ve mentioned before but I love Halloween month. Halloween is not just one day for me but an entire month to express my inner self. Halloween is the one time of the year you can be anything you want to be and no one looks at you funny. Want to dress in drag? Go for it. Always wanted to dress like a serial killer or convict? Why not? Seriously this is the best time of the year in my opinion.

Honestly, I think the only person that like Halloween more than I do is Ally of Something New. She is releasing this brand new pose for Mad Circus coming to the grid on October 7. This is a prop and pose set and comes with a single pose. The horse and sword are part of the prop.

I chose to wear my Lelutka Cate bento mesh head today because I wanted to share some more amazing items in this month’s Lelutka Powder Pack. If you didn’t order yours you can still get one for the full price of 3000L, then remember to pre-order your November pack when it opens. Amara Beauty, SlackGirl, and The Face are all included in this month’s pack. I love blogging for the Powder Pack because I get to try skins, makeups, etc that I may never have tried before.

Our Little Princess Danced Until Dawn


She danced danced danced all night, and wore out her slippers. Then exhausted, she climbed up up up the ladder to her bed, several mattresses high. Like princesses do, ya know. Then she probably started complaining about how a tiny pea disrupted her sleep, whereas we normal folks would just scoot around until we found a more comfortable spot. The life of a princess, poor thing.

Our princess is wearing ruffled spanks! This is another new release by Black Swan, called Frills Hotpants. Seriously sexy-cute! There may not be much sleep going on wearing these. The pose with mattresses and ladder are by Image Essentials, called quite appropriately, Princess and the Pea. 

I have to admit, I just love blogging when designers make such fun things. Your princess diva needs these items too!

Today I went a little different from my usual style, mostly because I’m using a drow skin and partly because I want to try and create unique images that stick with you. I’m always trying to improve, to make myself better, not because anyone is making me, but simply because I want to do my very best at all things.

This was so much fun to put together and in all honesty, I was inspired by the skin I’m wearing. 7 Deadly Skins is free to join right now, this is a limited time offer because as soon as the calendar changes to October 1, every group member will receive store credit as the group gift. Plus, group members can participate in the Trick or Treat Hunt, coming soon. This beautiful, drow-toned skin is one of the hunt gifts that you can find. This skin is shown on Lelutka Cate bento mesh head and Maitreya mesh body.

I set this scene up with trees from Little Branch, a leaf covered lawn from Botanical and headstones from Old World Designs. These all went so perfectly with this prop and pose set from Something New. This pose is the exclusive item for I <3 Cart starting October 1 and going through the end of the month. Along with this exclusive item, there is a 2L hunt gift and a 10L item as well as one other exclusive. I think Ally loves Halloween more than I do.

I needed the perfect hair to go with my witchly good looks and I remembered seeing the perfect hair at Collabor88. Exile created this hair for the current round and I have to say I love it. This hair comes with two versions; bento and non-bento. The bento hair moves! There are animations built into the hair that use the hind bones to move and it’s pretty awesome. This hair comes with a hat HUD as well.

Nothing like a cup of hot tea and a good book I have a bay window in my house I love to curl up and read in, mostly when it is rainy. This post is to highlight so many pretty things. This hair is released by Limerence and when I seen it I knew it was just right for the Emery set from Uber. All together tied up with these shoes from Ingenue that are at Shoetopia.

Feel It Still

I have been wanting to do a picture that would go with this song or made me think of this song and today I finally got one. I don’t know why but this song gets stuck in my head, it’s just fun to sing along to. So enjoy the video at the end of this blog.

Picking the outfit for this was easy, finding the pose and location not so much. I ended up at the photo studio areas of Image Essentials and after cycling through almost every pose I own, finally found one that worked and that I had not blogged previously. This pose from Reve Obscura comes with the mesh gun and is bento enabled.
Bento, if you don’t know by now is a new skeletal system in Second Life that allows for more bone and body movement. In order to see poses properly, you have to have a bento viewer and for poses, with hand positioning, you must have bento enabled hands to make it look right. I love having bento so much, it makes things in Second Life so much more realistic.

I am so excited to feature this brand new top from my newest designer, Masoom. This top comes in 16 individual colors or a fatpack. Each color pack includes a HUD to change the metal rings, but if you choose to get the fatpack you’ll also have the ability to change the ribbon on the back. This top is available at Cosmopolitan until October 7.

I had the top all picked out but I needed something on the bottom half, I mean I don’t typically do half nude blogs so I went on the hunt for the perfect bottoms. My quest led me to Shiny Shabby and these all-new shorts from RealEvil Industries. These shorts are available in multiple options. Go ahead and grab the denim set or the suede set, each come with 10 fabrics and 6 metals. But for more bang for your buck grab the fatpack and get 20 fabrics, 6 metals, and 4 exclusive textures.

White Widow is back at On9 with a brand new tattoo, this is a full body tattoo even though you can’t see my arms and hands but it does trail beautifully across your chest and down your arms. I loved the leg tattoos and decided that I could always include the rest of it in a future blog.

These boots, Onyx, are sold individually or in a fatpack and you get so many options to mix and match in the fatpack it’s completely worth it. I promise you won’t be sorry.

Today I am also reviewing the Genesis Lab Kiana bento mesh head. This was a limited gift for group members and is no longer available. At first, I wasn’t in love with it, I actually trashed it thinking I would never be able to make it look like I would want it. I, however, changed my mind and pulled it out of the trash folder and let it sit, waiting until my mind was in a place where I could find a way to be happy with this head. I have no complaints about cost, I paid 250L for the group and 200L for the Maitreya appliers, so all-in-all this head cost me a whopping 450L, not too shabby. It is Omega compatible, but only in the makeup layers, you cannot wear Omega compatible skins with it. With the head comes skins, eyes, makeups, animations, and several more items. The makeups to me personally, didn’t fit well and I didn’t like how they looked but maybe you will. I fiddled with the shape until I got somewhere in the vicinity of how I would like to look. This is the opinion of this blogger and nothing more, I am not bad-mouthing this head and with more editing, it may become one of my favorite heads. For now, I will say, it was an amazing value for the money.

Sometimes a blog builds itself, I started out knowing exactly what outfit I wanted to showcase. I started with one pair of shoes and decided on another. I wanted to show off a new skin I hadn’t used before and so many things just suddenly came together.  I love this look all the way around.

First up today we have this brand new, multi-layer top from RIOT. This is a main store release made to match the Marcus Tee this top is available in 30 colors! If you choose to buy the fatpack, and I highly suggest it, you also get the ombres and logo pack as well, that’s a total of 47 color options altogether.  Plus, you can choose to change the long sleeves to another color or take them off. This shirt has everything.

These are so much fun and I can almost guarantee I’ll be using them again.

I was at Collabor88 and was debating between my Catwa Catya and Lelutka Cate bento mesh head, I honestly love them both but I wanted to play with the facial animations on the Lelutka and then I saw the Glam Affair skins, one for each head (I bought both and still decided to use Lelutka for this blog). Glam Affair is still, to this day, one of my favorite skin makers although, due to responsibilities I don’t get around to blogging her much. This skin is so pretty and comes with eyeshadows and lipsticks built into the skin HUD. You can choose from multiple eyebrow options, including a no brow as well.

I chose the no brow option on the Glam Affair skin so I could pull out these fun eyebrows I purchased so long ago at Skin Fair. Lovely Disarray made these and for the time being, they are only on the Marketplace, she is working on creating an inworld store. These eyebrows are not currently available for purchase and the designer does caution that she is not updating her MP at this time and to get the goods while they are available at events.

I love Swallow and I applied to blog for her, she had a very minimal amount that she was accepting and I didn’t get in but that doesn’t stop me from getting her amazing creations and showing them off. These ears are mesh and are so easy to color match to your favorite skins. The HUD included controls the metals, tattoos, and the type of adornment through the hole. There is a talon or captive bead ring. The only thing I wish for, personally, is that I could have changed the metals individually but all in all these ears are fantastic.

I wanted some fun eyes to match my lipstick and eyeshadow, I mean this is Second Life might as well have some fun with your look. I decided to dig through my latest Powder Pack and found these eyes from Mudskin, made for Lelutka only you can still get your hands on them by purchasing the September Lelutka Powder Pack for 3000L. The good news is, you can pre-order the next Powder Pack for only 1500L and receive it on October 1.
