Halloween Bliss and the She-Devil

So as promised....more goodies that I've found with the spooky theme!

The first thing I couldn't wait to tell you about is the gown they currently have in the *Bliss Couture* group gift bag! The group is free to join and it is so worth it - the dresses are stunning!
This dress is perfect for halloween - with an intricate lace design:

The skin here is the current monthly group gift by Al Vulo. It's aptly named  and has a red tone to it. The detail on it is amazing as usual, and it worked very nicely with my next Halloween costume too as you will see in a moment. But first, here's a close-up of the skin:

The hair is from Analog Dog, and was completely free. Find them in the freeballs over there.

Now, the other costume I found on my travels is from the lovelies over at Purple Moon! It is the Halloween group gift, and it's perfect if you want to go for a little something with a LOT of sexy!

 The outfit comes with everything you see here,even the flames! As you can see, the attention to detail is astounding! The skin is from Al Vulo and the Hair is from the Analog Dog freeball.

Happy shopping!

Fright Night! (and a few other things)

Hi everyone, sorry I've been away for so long!

I've managed to get onto SL for a little while this weekend, and whilst I was on, I found some lovely goodies for you - all with a spooky theme!

In terms of my recovery, it's going okay so far. I have another appointment with my oncologist in a couple of weeks, so hopefully it will go okay :)

I am still fundraising for The Bone Cancer Research Trust. If you would like to know more about my bone tumour and/or to donate, please go here. Thank you :)

Now, a very good friend of mine invited me along to a live music event with a Halloween costume contest. And of course when it came down to getting dressed up, I had nothing to wear as per usual. So I went on a quick search for something spooky!

As many of you will know, I love zombies! So of course, I decided to go as a zombie. But not just any old zombie....A BALLERINA ZOMBIE WITH BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN HAIR! WIN.

Some of this was 10$L or below....the shoes were a bargain for the fatpack at just 99$L (with colour change HUD!), and the dress was 200$L....yes I know, not like me to splash out is it - but I'm allowed a treat once in a while, and it was for a special occasion! So nerrr!

So....above is the dress - Zombie Bloom : Neo victorian Zombie Bloody Dress- isn't it beautiful!? The attention to detail on this is really something! I love the little bows and blood spatters, oh and the lacy frills on the tutu skirt! I picked this up from the marketplace, and it is by Rotten Toe (as always, see the end of this post for all the links on where to get these items!)

And here are the shoes....these are the Locket Ballet Heels by ::PG:: Extreme Party Girl (on the marketplace)- as I said, they cost 99$L, but are more than worth that as they come as a fatpack and have a tint & texture HUD with chain scripts included! 

As for the hair and skin....I also got these on the marketplace. The hair is Bride of Frankenstein by Paper Heart - a steal at just 1$L!! And the skin is Zombie Girl from the female skin collection by ::Miss.Murder:: - I LOVE this skin because I wanted something gory, but of course I wanted to be the prettiest zombie at the ball - and this ticked all the boxes....of course it's a bonus that it cost me just 10$L!

Here is a couple  of close-ups of the detail that has been put into the skin:

And later on today, I shall be updating with more spooktacular goodies that I've found on my travels around the metaverse - so please check back - I promise it will be something you won't want to miss!

Halloween hugs and zombie bites kisses,

Falling from You

A very belated post featuring the male and female outfits by Likka House from the Twisted Hunt.

It is perhaps ironical that this is the last photo of Demo and I together. Blindfolded, trusting to faith, and falling to the abyss below, Helli grasps frantically at his hand hoping he can pull her to safety. Demo leans back trying to grab her, and hoist her to safety.
The pull of opposite directions, opposing forces, and sheer willpower. Love that is encompassing, but not enough to hold people together, when wills pull in opposing directions blind to each other's real needs and desires. The perpetual paradox of love versus self.

Chicago Blues

Been really busy RL, so had little time to Blog :(
One of my favourite designers in SL is GizzA. And this Limited Edition gown is stunning! It has a beautiful flow that just glides over the floor. Also, unlike many mesh skirts this one doesn't "break through" when you move your legs, an absolute plus when you want to spend the evening dancing. Really, do yourself a favour with this and go grab it before it sells out!
Gizza "Chicago Blues"
The fall of the many feathers as you float around is captivating. And the silver bodice really enhances and draws the eye in a subtle way to the bust area.

 The dress can even be worn without the feathers, emphasising the waist area with a wide sash at the front and large bow at the back.
