Always a Bridesmaid

Some of the lovely things presented at Penumbra fashion week this time were bridal gowns. I’m not a big fan usually, so I was intrigued though to see something very understated and elegant from Ever An’ Angel for Penumbra and had to put it on. When I was newer in SL, my friends and I would often put on wedding dresses and run around the grid being mad and silly. This gown seemed to deserve an elegant backdrop.  I think I found the perfect place for the SL wedding I won’t have.

It doesn’t have a lot of seating for guests but that’s ok. I might actually bring Gidge back over here for tea and cakes when she’s done working – it’s rather lovely in it’s amazing white wash of light.

There is even a fairytale-like carriage to bring me to the ceremony. Yes, this is a perfect spot.

Now, for the small matter of a groom…

How do you Hoodoo?

Helena Stringer - IOF - How do you Hoodoo - 1
World Goth Fair is still going strong, with a little over a week left of the event. It officially ends on May 31st. There are so many musical things happening before then, which will be held at the Club Gothika. You can keep up to date on all the happenings on the Official Site HERE.

I don’t often get a chance to cover Home&Garden items. I don’t own a home, never have. I have always thought the prims best used for other things, on the lands I own. It does create issues, when I do get the urge to cover something that isn’t fashion, or when I feel the need for an actual location to show something off properly.

I picked up this gothic looking skybox from Roawenwood this week, as I felt it would work well with my WGF coverage. If it wasn’t roundish, I might have even used it as my work studio, haha. Alas, it is round, but gives me the ability to easily do setups. Much like a Turnip Skysdome, I can just plunk it down, and fill it with random stuff for the shots I need. Going to have lots of fun with this thing!

Fantasy Faire 2015 – Light Weaver

Fantasy Faire 2015 - Helena Stringer - Light Weaver - 1

Protector of magic,
Weaver of light,
guide us through the unyielding night.

Fly up high,
If you dare,
Shadows encroach and you must beware.

Forces unknown,
Wish to fight,
To hammer down those who shine bright.

Fear not,
One so fair,
I am here to heed your prayer.

A poem by Helena Stringer

 Fantasy Faire is only here for a short period of time, and while many of us wish it wasn’t so, and we could have the sims for a whole month, or more, it is not to be.

Johnny Got a Boom Boom

0508_004

Rockabilly is ascendant at Collabor88 and that makes me happy. Of course, rockabilly is a music genre – but it  has its own fashion aesthetic just a punk, hiphop and grunge do. Music and fashion are forever entwined.

I thought you might enjoy this neo-rockabilly song from Imelda May, Johnny Got a Boom Boom.  If you listen, you will learn he also has a bam.

Die Schöne Tuli

My best friend and I, upon hearing Maximilian Schell’s name, are likely to starting singing “die Schöne TIIIIIINA” because we are ridiculous fans of the movie “The Freshman”.  As I kept saying Sunny Tuli I kept hearing Schöne Tuli in my head.

Umlauts over o are alt-0246 btw. The more you know.

I have posted a full review including all the jumblies HERE please click through to read.

Die Schöne Tuli – With Full Skin Review – That Means NAKED

Who Needs Winter?

We had our second snowstorm of the winter in Southtown and I confess I’m done now. Bring me warm weather and sunny days. I am ready for cool evening breezes and casual, lazy southern days.

Fission, the new brain child of Lavea Alter (you may remember from A-Bomb long ago) is bringing us fresh, fun pieces that are driving away the most tedious winter days. So even if it’s not left your RL, you can escape to paradise in your SL and these gorgeous pieces are perfect for it.

I’m still rolling around in Tuli this week. This is Sara, such a pretty face.  Tuli does a great job not only with lips, which I have mentioned before, but with blonde brows. Some folks cannot get blond brows right.

If Only Mesh Would Swoosh

Gowns for swooshing around a dance floor have yet to be created in mesh. Mesh moves with your avatar but not so much on the wind. That’s why I’m always going to be secretly in love with a flowing gown now and again. Sascha’s Designs has released this one, and I’ve opted for the slinky one leg out version. I’m sexy like that.

When Rifling Through My Inventory I Came Upon Old Hair

OMGAH A FASHION BLOGGER WEARING OLD HAIR! (That pic is for you Alicia !)

I am on the hunt for a smaller inventory but as I’m digging in and going through the lot of it, I confess I’m pulling out a thing or two and seeing what it is.  This hair from TRUTH reminded me that I need to keep my eye on “boy hair” releases more often, because although this is an older hair, boy hair is always great for showing off earrings and skin because it’s up and out of your way.

The hair is a little older and a little dated (amazing what even months can mean now, in how we expect things to look, much less YEARS) but I had to give it one last spin. YOU SERVED ME WELL HAIR. Continue reading
