Autumn Cafe

I seem to be spending an awful lot of time in cafes at the moment. I think it’s because it is October which means lots of cold wind and hot drinks while the leaves fall. Whether in RL or in SL, Setpt/October is my favourite time of year. I love the cold and the wind and the leaves.

And everyone stops looking at me funny for wearing long sleeves and black.

Just Stop

Sometimes you need to just stop. A day of doing nothing important. A day of sitting around being idle. I’ve had the house to myself all day and it’s been wonderful. Just me and the cats.

Daring in Tokyo

I got lost wandering around Tokyo and decided balancing on the edge of a walkway would be fun.

Born to be Deco

If asked what design era I favour, the answer is always Deco. I do love Victorian; after all I am a goth, but Deco sets my heart racing. From simple things like pottery and ash trays to buildings and furniture. The cars, the clothes, the whole world of design in the Deco period, I love it all.

So you can imagine my glee when House of Rain and Senzafine both posted pictures of their offerings for Genre who was doing Deco this round. Yes, there was a squee of delight. I bought several things at Genre that day, but by far Axi (HoR) and Synjari (Senzafine) were my 2 favourites. Both of their offerings are so perfect that they could’ve actually been from the era. I haven’t taken the jewellery or dress off since I bought them last week.

Genre slurl for you.

Also, I couldn’t decide which picture to use so you get 2 pictures today.

Skulls!

As previously mentioned, I love skulls. So this is my little skull themed outfit with a little black plaid thrown in. Wearing some of my very favourite designers here. There are some shops that I just keep going back to again and again.  Mesh has really changed the game too. While  I do sometimes see the same mesh template in several shops, the items are so completely different. So who cares if someone uses a template. Gimme those fab outfits.

I am a hair addict though and yes I do have hair with skulls in it.

WGF – Licensed Band Tshirts

So just to show that there is a right way to do things, Axi and Cruel Britannia went out and talked to a bunch of bands that they know and we all love and got permission to use their band logos on tshirts. They were able to get permission from 34 bands to make tshirts for the WGF with all proceeds going to S.O.P.H.I.E. They are mesh shirts and there are male and female styles.

You can find them on Cursed and on Port Seraphine You have until Noon on June1st to get the shirts you want. Only 40L each and all fully licensed.

WGFGacha

There are of course  rares and the most sought after appears to be the You Shriek shirt. Not only because Razi & You Shriek is awesome, but because the gachas appear to  like screwing with us and not giving out as many as we’d like. While not intentional on Axi’s part, it does mean that some ferocious trading is happening. Of course unless you’re like me and spend waaaaay to much trying to get that damned shirt. In the end my lovely friend Syn gave me hers.

I do have a complete set of shirts though…and oh so many duplicates.

WGF – Why Hello Mister Kraken!

Axi told Lokii not to summon anything. This of course meant that Lokii was pretty much required to summon something.

Meet Mr. Kraken.

You can’t feed him, but no one said I couldn’t make friends and feed him stupid people.

Everything I’m wearing is from the World Goth Fair with the exception of my hair and nails. WGF can be found on Cursed and Port Seraphine until May 31st.

WGF – You Should’ve Seen It Coming

Is it really a surprise that the first dress I’ve fallen in love with is one of the 3 dresses being offered by Malfean Visions? No, I didn’t think so either. Here’s some World Goth Faire offerings.

So the World Goth Faire is up and rolling and I’ve got the SLURLs for you.

WGF on Cursed (This is an adult sim)

WGF on Port Seraphine (This is a moderate sim)

The Faire is May 15th to 31st and proceeds will go to the Sophie Lancaster Foundation. Go buy things and enjoy.

So as I said, first in what promises to be a long line of posts is one of the three dresses being offered by Malfean Visions. This is totally my favourite too. It’s a bit French burlesque/Victorian goth feel about it. I love it. Of course there are many colours, but of course I’m in the Red and Black.

For my jewellery I am wearing Lassitude & Ennui’s offering for the fair.  I love skulls and bones in necklaces. I’ve been all over SL looking for good skull necklaces. So this bone necklace is fantastic.  The set is completed with little drop earring and a circlet, (which I’m not wearing), that is in the same sort of shape as the necklace.

I’m not wearing my normal skin either. I have the Jalwa skin Jezebel on. This is a the vamp shade and looks quite good. It’s nice to see a white goth skin that isn’t sporting raccoon eyes.

Couple of close ups so you can see the make-up detail on the skin and L&E’s lovely necklace and earrings.
