16/10/2020 – Hallow Manor

I would like to invite you to a fiendish event that opens today. You will be able to find macabre items, and to search for the lost keys in a hunt for only the truly insane!

When you arrive at Hallow Manor, you enter the gates to find a winding alley of goods that have been created with the macabre and frightful in mind. Once you have purchased everything your little black heart desires, you will enter the grounds of Hallow Manor’s cemetery, and perhaps catch a glimpse of the old estate.

You will have an opportunity to purchase a HUD in order to search for the lost keys to unlock the hidden prize room, or, if you so wish, purchase a master key HUD, to bi-pass the hunt.

My personal favourites at the event so far are the gorgeous boots from Eclectica. They come in many floral tones and both the mesh and textures are exquisitely made. They’re also very volatile as they are texture change and you can modify different parts separately.

You may also want to hunt for the Macabre Girl Set from Lovelysweet, the tattoo layers are insanely cute, in a macabre, creepy way.

[shameless plug mode on] Don’t forget to check out the Banana Banshee eyes, both at the booth and hunt [shameless plug mode off]

Halloween on Millbank

Gogo recommended the Halloween Experience over at the MILLBANK sim and I decided that once I had a cup of coffee it was time to get in the spirit. After all – this is one of my FAVORITE times of year on the grid. There is a haunted tour which is delightfully spooky.

It was a lot of fun, but then something weird happened. Right after I crossed over the cemetery…

I passed by this dude and his dog on a foggy street. I assume he lived there? I mean, it’s a street – I guess these are someone’s homes? Spooky people’s homes but homes nonetheless. Anyway, as i float along a walking path I realize that he is running behind me. He’s following me!

WHY? What are you doing ?

He never spoke to me, but he and his big dog essentially chased after me the last 1/3 of the tour, following me like some creepy killer. It was actually unnerving.

It reminded me a lot of the early days of the grid where noobs like me wouldn’t have their lots restricted and people would barge in and threaten you, as though they could do something to you. They couldn’t, but it was scary and weird when it would happen. I’m not sure why this dude was following me or what he was even doing. Maybe I just happened to be taking his favorite dog walking path.

Except dogs in SL don’t ACTUALLY have to be walked.

I’m totally getting my big dog out when I get home. This is some boo sheet.

Kawaii a Bit

I have to admit that one of the things I LOVE most about BOM being a thing is my ability to pull out RIDICULOUS things from the beginnings of SL and wear them. SUCH AS – these jeans from Butterfly Island – was that the place or the brand? The brand – was it Coconut Ice? Man I can’t remember….. Oh Butterfly Island, I coveted all your things once upon a time. I bought them, I stalked the lucky chairs, I was a fairy more often than not.

I went back once a couple of years ago or more and was nostalgic and sad for how amazing it used to be – and how it simply had not kept up in the way old stores don’t sometimes.

Thus, I put on my fairy jeans and relive my love of those days when belts were painted on our pants and we thought that was just lovely.

The secret these days, of course, is simply not to move too much in your BOM pants or that waistline slips around like crazy and you look nuts. Thus, I took may photos and tried to find the least nuttiest.

I don’t care. I still love these jeans. Weird painted fairies and all.

Now who wants to help me eat this gummy bear? This thing is ridiculous.

Seaside Yet Again

I stopped by Rainbow Reef in my brand new swimsuit to visit and maybe gawk at all the lovers canoodling and wouldn’t you know it? No one is here.

Looks like I don’t have to share a paddle-boat with anyone though. WINNING!

If you need me, I’ll be in the water.

August 30th, 2020 – Fairy tale

Once upon a time, I was a fae. I would roam the lands of a fantasy role play sim, wearing beautiful gowns and wings. But then sad things happened, I lost the love of my Slife, and left a land that no longer felt like home. I sometimes still miss the simple joy of fly-dancing with my beloved around the drum circle, surrounded by my best friends, Shay the fae, Maelenn the avariel, Eithne the dryad and Richy the dragon. So when I spotted the wings from Decoy at Collabor 88, it felt like a blast from the past, and I just had to put together an outfit with The Secret Store’s latest cutie, and find a whimsical place to take a picture.

Since I got my Lelutka Nova head, I’ve been wearing the same skin, as it was the only one I demoed that felt like me. Well I finally found another one, but, oh well, it’s yet again a skin from Lara Hurley. What can I say, her work is amazing.
I’d also like to tell you about a store I discovered not long ago, Simple Bloom. If you’re not satisfied with your eyebrows, or if you want to try something different, and get a unique look, go visit their store, they have hundreds of different eyebrows, mostly BOM, and they are extremely well made.

August 28th, 2020. A pink day

Oh hi! Today I didn’t go to work because of what I thought was a sciatica. Turns out it’s a tendonitis in my buttock. Yes, you may laugh, and no, I don’t know how I did that. Anyway, since I had a little time at home on my own, I managed to put together an outfit and take a few pictures.

I went to Uber and grabbed a few of the gifts that each store has, as it’s a birthday round. These lovely glasses were one of them. So were the adorable fairy lights in the picture below. I also grabbed (not a gift but worth it) another set of gorgeous rings from Yummy, and the matching nails from Nylon Outfitters.

Midweek Hurdle

We did it. We got past the midweek hurdle. Personally it was a struggle but I am struggling in general to ever get anything done these days. The ennui or laziness that seems to own me is pervasive. I’m trying to fight it but, the struggle is real.

I probably just need to go shopping.

Shopping fixes everything, right?

Domestic Goddess

I’m feeling domestic this Monday evening so despite being overdressed for it, I’m doing a bit of baking in my extremely silly kitchen. I swear I’m going to put in a proper kitchen at some point but this one makes me giggle and thus, for now it stays.

How was your Monday? Mine was pretty great, despite the fact that I’m still vexed that I didn’t get the chair that matches my desk and it’s not out at the mainstore yet.

Some day. Until then, I’ll just eat these pies.

Monday Got Me Like…

I didn’t start off my day planning to be a lazy Monday, but I think my relaxing weekend was too relaxing. I couldn’t get myself motivated AT ALL so then, I just decided to do some day drinking.

Luckily, my favorite bar tender was on duty.

Back off Ladies and Gents, he’s MINE!

With Boots on hand to serve up the strongest drinks on the grid, I was assured of a perfect day drinking experience.

It was a Monday Martini kind of day, I thought, and truly, alliteration in your cocktail choices is a sign of civilization isn’t it? I think so.

Rainbow Rooms is a perfect spot for cocktails, day or night. Now, I think I need a nap.

Bringing The Weekend Home

Did Putrid specifically get the baby pool out for me? I’ll never know, but I have to say I spent a lot of time getting wrinkled fingers in it this weekend. It’s a perfect size for a party of 1!

Lake swimming isn’t always my favorite but I have to say, these waters are gorgeous. The linden trailers are so cute, especially lake or river side.

Alas, I’ve got to go home and get back to my regularly scheduled SLife.

See you tomorrow girls!
