GxG 2014 Those Poisonous Shoes

Gothas by Gaslight is now open! You can find the blog HERE. Merchant list and sim maps can be found HERE.

The event is across 2 sims.
Sium Taxi
Cursed Taxi (Adult sim)

Normally I wouldn’t devote a whole post to a single item in an event, but this is a very special case. Back on 2012 at the first World Goth Fair Axi Kurmin released a set of jewellery called My Poisonous Friend. The necklace in this set fast became my go to necklace and is by far my favourite piece of jewellery in SL. (I’d murder for a RL version) When I saw that she had designed a pair of companion shoes and was releasing them at GxG I squealed with delight. We’re talking real sounds here and a funny look of confusion from my husband.

These shoes are amazing and again I’d murder for a RL version. The ones on my toes are the GxG Exclusive red pair, but you can also get the non-exclusive version that has a colour hud and so many colour options. The shoes are for Slink High Feet, so you’ll be needing those if you haven’t got them already. Who’re we kidding though; you’ll buy the feet just for these shoes.

My toes are also GxG items. Dead of Winter Slink nail polish from event sponsor Beautiful Freak

Bare Faced Lie

I’m sure most of  you have seen the bloggers and SL photographers taking pictures of their avatars without any enhancements or make-up. I normally don’t do these challenges, but this one struck me as a real challenge. As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I wear a white skin; I am a Goth after all. With this in mind it can be a real challenge to get the lighting right for photos in general, but taking a close shot with no make-up was a bit harder than usual.

I do think this turned out pretty well though. Took about 4 attempts with different lighting settings so that I wasn’t a ball of glare, but also still able to see my skin is white with details. Too soft a light and it’d just look like a pale skin; which it isn’t.

Victorian

I bought the arm warmers and then I bought the boots. Of course then I had to find something to wear them both with. Luckily ACS helped in that respect as I bought more Victorian inspired clothes in that event than I think I have in a very long time. Kita’s Sideshow has come to the rescue with this lovely skirt and top with its two tone black colour and all those wonderful ruffles. The blacks matched very well with both the boots and the arm warmers  making it a sure match.

What do you think?

Don’t let the dress fool you; I can kick your ass in the blink of an eye because I know Karate.

This is a late ACS post really but I couldn’t resist showing this awesome outfit off. I don’t often go in for full outfits and prefer to mix and match, but for once the whole deal made it for me. I’m sure she will have it up in the shop soon as ACS only ended a week ago. You could always poke her if you can’t wait.

Flying Solo – ACS2014

I haven’t made a full round of the event yet, but the moment I saw Syn’s offering on Flickr I made a bee-line for her stall. I love this jacket so much. I think I’ll hop on that ship and sail away to be a Pirate Captain. To hell with work, I want to pillage.

Spiraling Clockwork Spirals – ACS2014

It is that time of year again and A Clockwork Spiral has arrived. Lokii has been a busy busy bunny with the event build and somehow she has again outdone herself. I don’t know how she does it but the woman must be applauded. This place is huge and has a central set of train platforms where the sponsors will be located.

Under the train platforms is where the Mobile Gothika Unit will be stationed and boy is it lovely. Axi and Lokii have outdone themselves on the decorating this time.

So, ACS starts later today at 6pm SLT and will benefit The National Kidney Foundation. The ACS blog is HERE and the event runs from September 15th to October 1st.

Damask

I know, I’ve been seriously slacking. Real life has had me very busy lately and while I’ve still been shopping, I just haven’t had the time for taking pictures. I’ll do my best to get back into the swing of things as A Clockwork Spiral rolls into view.

I’d like to point out that this picture was taken out front of the Malfean Visions shop. Lokii has again changed her store and surrounding space, but again it looks awesome. You should come have a wander around. (And give her all your money)
