The peaceful light of the ever-shining sun

0412_002

久方の
光のどけき
春の日に
しづ心なく
花のちるらむ

In the peaceful light
Of the ever-shining sun
In the days of spring,
Why do the cherry’s new-blown blooms
Scatter like restless thoughts?

…Ki no Tomonori

Even though all my pics are selfies really, aren’t they? So this is a selfie of a selfie? I don’t even know. It’s suddenly Selfie Inception.

I don’t know what’s happening.

I do know that COLLABOR88 is open and that means I have lots of amazing things to show you- and this is just ONE of them, from Katatonik! These would be great masks for a Mardi Gras ball!

Risen

I spent at least an hour flipping through marketplace looking for a Halloween costume. It just seemed, I don’t know, too easy to buy a mesh avatar and call it my Halloween costume. I’m not sure why. I will probably end up buying one, because I can never settle on ONE costume.  But this morning I thought WHY NOT MAKE ONE! Continue reading

I Enjoy Being a Ghoul

GizzaOct12_002

Deathly Silence from Gizza is ghoulishly delightful, curvalicious and macabre, slinky and scary, spooky and sexy and perfect for those of us who enjoy being a ghoul.

I’m a ghoul, and by me that’s only great!
I am proud that my silhouette is curvy,
That I walk with a sweet and ghoulish gait
With my hips kind of swivelly and swervy.

What is a girl to do when she wants to get to the next town over, without a cent to her name?

She strikes a pose, that’s what!

There is very little time left to head on down to the latest round of Genre, This round was Western in theme. While not my normal thing, I thought I’d give it a try.

I ended up looking like a partially dead strumpet, but I am totally fine with that!

Poses all from Shop Free*Style

I tried to find a location to shoot, which was somewhat hard. Most places that had the look I wanted, required traditional garb and esthetics. I had the clothing, but the skin wasn’t appropriate, or so the GMs all told me. Even just for taking pics.

I did eventually stumble upon the starter area for Wyoming West. Again, this was another location I was not allowed to tp down to, but the starter area was nice enough to take a few snaps in.

There’s a fantasy gacha carnival going on and Acha made me a princess.

The Lost Doll of the Forever Tea

Doll Tea 1

Many years ago, she became aware. Like any mind that becomes instantly aware, she had many questions, but alas, there was no one around to ask them.

On her tiny island home, she found many things, plant life, creatures and some structures. She seemed to have knowledge of what to do with all the things she found, knew their names and function.

Ingrained in her was the need to serve tea, though she did not know for whom. It became an obsession, to the point where she would stand by the teahouse door, and wait for the guests that never came.

Little Greenie, I Will Always Be Your Fool

There was an AREA 51 themed party this weekend at The Garden to celebrate this month’s theme, and I couldn’t decide if I wanted to be a poodle skirt diner girl or an alien. I dithered and went back and forth. The best part was, I was putting it all together from fun new and old items in my inventory – proof positive that you don’t have to go out and bankrupt yourself to participate in fun theme events.

A Sea of Sirens Tears

Helena Stringer - IOF - Love Donna Flora - 3

When I first heard and then read about the Donna Flora event, I cried, I really did. I don’t do it often, but it really hit me. I cried a little again, when I realized I missed the cutoff date for applications for designers.

So I shopped instead.

Helena Stringer - IOF - Love Donna Flora - 5

I have never had the opportunity to talk with Squinternet. I’d sometimes see her setting up vendors in the shop, or out and about at events. I do however know her store line personally, as I have acquired many pieces from it over the years.

Some of you may know me, or of me, some of you may not, but one thing that can be universally seen in many of my posts is my love of colour. I also love period and retro styles. Donna Flora was one of those places I could go, get a Purple/Orange/Red patterned dress, grab gold, like real looking gold jewelry(so hard to find) and come out not looking like a clashy mess.

Fairy Lights and Forest Nights

I’m not actually an elf. I’m pretending to be one. I’m an elf who had plastic surgery to get her ears fixed. Now I regret it, and I’ve returned to the forest in search of my pointy eared brethren.  I decided if I was going to pretend to be an elf who had plastic surgery and now was returning to the forest in search of my pointy eared brethren, I’d need a forest. And that’s a funny story. Continue reading
