Hymn to October

As always this October,

“To absent friends, lost loves, old gods, and the season of mists; and may each and every one of us always give the devil his due.” -- Neil Gaiman

Mr. Cool, Mr. Right, Mr. Knowitall

It would be so tremendously cool if, in real life, we could paint the lower half of our body invisible and attach a halloween costume. Imagine the possibilities! "I think I'll be the car from Speed Racer." "I think I'll be a naga." Someday, maybe, when cybernetics allow us to achieve Second Life in real life.

Also, this Dr. Horrible costume is from Katat0nik -- I love it, well made and easy to wear. The cute macabre birdie is from Silent Sparrow over at SaNaRae. There are many! I want the pumpkin-headed one!

Cool nights wrapped in cotton

Today I'm previewing some of the outfits from the Moon Festival. It's been a lot of fun getting the blogger packs for this event -- I always like wearing yukata, and I also like trying to figure out what things are. For example my oversized necklace of spirit beads. Are they traditional? Should I even be wearing them? Am I committing a cultural faux-pas? After a bit of research, I was relieved to find I was not. Anyway. The moon festival opens on October 1, and you can check out the other things offered at the pretty event over here!

Headband: G*Field flower headband in white/pink
Shoes: Ingenue Artemis sandals in crimson/leaf
Skin: Pink Fuel Crystal Doll V2 with Catwa appliers
Beads: Distant Designs Withered monk/spirit beads in jade/sanguine for the Moon Festival
Outfit: DWD Festival Yukatas #1 and #2 for the Moon Festival
Hair: Barberyumyum 83 in anime colors

Dragon moon

Once upon a time I was sitting in a cafe IRL, and a guy came up to chat with me because he noticed me taking screencaps of Second Life. "Do you have any ability to code this stuff?" he asked, apparently confused about what I was doing. "Nope. I'm just a photographer in this game," I said sheepishly. It highlighted to me a few things: First, that this niche of photographing and blogging about virtual worlds is something not many people would understand, and second, that this skill doesn't translate well at all to real life. At least it's a viable skill here, right? Heh.

Yesterday I spent some time wandering the Moon Festival sim -- it'll open on October 1. It's a very cute Japanese-style harvest festival, and I really liked the way they decked out the sim. I still have my scary kimono from Katat0nik, and I think I'll slide it on when I wander the festival in earnest.

You can check out the stuff that's posted so far in the Flicker group, and check out the sim on October 1.
