Something from across the sea


Woke up this morning, rolled sleepily into Second Life, accidentally deleted a number of items dropped on me that I shoulda kept (oops, damnit), and fell in love with a pair of boots. I deleted the notecard from G*Field accidentally, but went anyway, knowing that whatever it was I was probably going to buy it. Indeed, I bought the fatpack of these gorgeously rose-embossed short cowboy boots. *sigh* I bought this outfit while I was there… Then I saw Lamb's notice and went to get the Stumblebums hair. Quirky and relaxed but posh, as always! (SLURL to G*Field) (SLURL to Lamb)

This morning, Jackal and I put on over-the-top mage ensembles from Chaospire and went wandering in Pteron. It was a beautiful sim, completely empty and full of strange devices, including a dangling rotating moving gyrating thingie… I didn't know what to call it, but it reminded me of the thing from The Dark Crystal. She taught me the word, "orrery."


***Hair: The Stringer Mausoleum shadow keeper - black
***Shoes: Lassitude & Ennui Estampie in dark velvet
***Horns: Illusions Canadensis horns
***Skin: Nomine sylvan male china white
***Outfit: Chaospire chaos mage

Dark thoughts and big skirts


It's kind of amazing about enormous skirts. Put one on and they spawn in inventory! Today's enormous skirt is the Pensees Noires dress from Grim Bros (who might be grim, but Cutea isn't a brother). I wore it to the Lovecraft Bacchanal thingie last night and ran into Wrenja, who threatened to rip it off my body and run off with it. It is a heck of an outfit, and comes with hat and train and enormous sleeves and a hot mess o' attached bits. I love the final effect, Cutea always has such a rich and strange vision in mind when she makes these outfits. (SLURL to Grim Bros.)

Then Jackal showed up and threatened, "Any more enormous skirts and it's back to Caledon for you!"

Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn


The Bacchanal is back, and this time it's all about Lovecraft. Draconic's dress, above, is tied together with tentacles and eyeballs, perfect for your most Chthonic needs. In the words of Draconic: "Look close.... not to close. There be tendrils holding that fabric together. Twitchy, squirmy, glowy tendrils. Ew. Yep. Some of them have big eyes too." I think I'll wear it to a ritual execution by tossing into the Maw of Endless Pain… And I finally found a dress worthy of this []Trap[] skin, which I've had forever and never really found something to put over it. Tentacles work, most definitely!

The riverbank talks of the waters of March


I realize now that it's dangerous to photograph in big fluffy dresses because it opens me up to MORE big fluffy dresses. I say 'dangerous' because photographing large prim skirts honestly perplexes me. There's so much going on at the bottom of the photo, so little at the top… I have an inability to make the picture look at all graceful, so I made something super-plain today. Also, I'm not wearing shoes. Or underpants. But you can't tell either one! All that aside, this lovely dress is from Ivalde. I really love the corseted bodice and the slightly different pattern of the underskirt. My avvie is still going in a Preraphaelite groove with red, red hair and lips today. The skin is new from Rfyre. (SLURL to Ivalde) (SLURL to Rfyre)

It's the joy in your heart


I've had lyrics stuck in my head, so you get to see them too. I'm dressed in pre-Raphaelite steampunk with thick red braids from Deviant Kitties and a new pale, pale skin from fashionably Dead… My outfit is this sweeping Mary Shelley-esque concoction from Ezura. Right, on to the lyrics:

A stick, a stone,

It's the end of the road,

It's the rest of a stump,

It's a little alone

And the river bank talks

of the waters of March,

It's the end of the strain,

The joy in your heart.

Teal belle


*katat0nik* has new things out! I sincerely hope that this trend continues, because it's lovely to see new Kat creations in-world again. I'm wearing her new Sakura Storm tattoo sleeves, which are a riot of gorgeous colors up my arm. I'm also in her new skirt, which comes with a color-changing script so that you can match it to any of her previous outfits. Total love! I had to wash my face with teal paint to go with this outfit, and Fricka came through with this beautiful Ocean Lolly skin. (SLURL to Katat0nik) (SLURL to Frick)
