In another installment for the Raid My Closet challenge, I dug way back to Halloween’s past (2008) for this Katatonik Day of the Dead dress. It’s survived dozens of inventory purges simply because I love it – even though there’s not much chance to wear it. Continue reading →
It was easy deciding what to wear for this second installment in the Raid Your Closet Challenge. There are pieces I will never throw out, no matter how old they are. Among them are most of my Paper Couture designs. This dress is from September 2011 and is still available. I chose it because it highlights how much more experimental and effective the Lu sisters are at working with the system layers. This skirt has a bit more shape and body than the usual system skirt – not because of the skirt glitch that gives us all donkey booty, but because they often made full skirts with system pieces. They took the system skirt beyond the skin-tight pencil skirt and played with form. They weren’t the only ones, but they were certainly the most successful. They have not released in over a year. I hope that means they are taking their experimental, boundary-pushing, technology-testing ways to mesh and are preparing to surprise us all. I hope that’s why we have not heard from them in so long.
I did the Raid Your Closet Challenge and it was a lot of fun. I chose an outfit that I can’t say either way if it’s still available or not. It’s from Violent Seduction and she did an overhaul and got rid of a lot of her older outfits. This one is called Dark Princess Ero in black and it’s mostly sculpted parts and has like 3 skirt options but the caged skirt is my favorite. If you’ve never been to Violent Seduction you should check it out…lots of great outfits.
Part of my problem is, I’ve been deleting a LOT of my older stuff lately trying to get a hold on the madness that is my inventory. But I rifled around and found something things that I slapped together. I am even keeping the rule that you must have owned everything since before the beginning of the month. YAY Me.

The boots are new from Lassitude & Ennui for L’Accesoires (I probably spelled that wrong) but most of the other things are older than newer. (I got them in Sept so shut up) Continue reading →
