Reading too much Paradise Kiss

New corset colors from Jackal!

Jackal made lovely colorings of her Elena corset for this round of We heart RP! I adore the rust, of course, but I also love the lavender one. The stitching comes with silver or gold options. The hair is by Calico, the new Aiyana updo. I love the little curled braids at the back (which is why I did a shot from the back, here), and they’ve got little hud-alterable flowers in the center of them. The jewelry set is by Bliensen + MaiTai, and uh… I’ve forgotten what event they’re for, d’oh. Fantasy Faire? There are so many fantasy-themed events this month that I occasionally stick things in the wrong folder. Anyway, it’s named after one of my favorite Tolkien heroes, Gil-galad, and looks ethereally lovely. The gems and metal also change color with a hud!

All the jewelry: Bliensen + MaiTai Gilgalad set

Softly folded teal


Jackal's Henriette dress!

I was overjoyed to wake up and find a box of new creations from my dear partner Jackal Ennui. She's working on a line of awesome clothing for Lassitude & Ennui. I adore the other dresses she's done (example here), but this is really the most Edwardian so far! I was initially drawn to her shoes when I lived in Caledon. Really, if you didn't wear an Ingenue frock with your Lassitude & Ennui shoes, you might as well not show up at the ball. Jackal's shoes have continued to walk that awesome line between accessible and roleplay, and her latest dress absolutely suits her style. See it at the Fantasy Faire!

Briar-colored glasses

Enchantment

You know what bugs me about this picture? My hair is poking through my dress bodice. I’m also at work and far away from Second Life, so I can’t correct it! Anyway, you get the gist — the hair is gorgeous, the twining floral vines are gorgeous, and the rest of me is dressed to match. This stuff is at Enchantment’s Sleeping Beauty round, which opened today.

Hair: MINA Roosje for ENCHANTMENT
Roses: Lark Briar armbands and mask for ENCHANTMENT
Sandals: Bliensen + MaiTai Tinda Sandals in red

Clothes for a royal christening

Freckles and a gown

Enchantment begins in May, and for the next few weeks I'm going to look like this kind of person. Can I admit to you that fairy tales scare the crap out of me? They're rife with all of the suppressed fears and longings of our culture, and I always sense that some deep psychological trauma is occurring just offscreen. In the case of Sleeping Beauty, imagine being so jealous of a missed party invitation that you want to KILL A BABY? What's WRONG with us? ... Anyway. This outfit and veil are for the event. Maybe they're garments to wear to Princess Aurora's christening, rich enough for a royal party (as long as we're invited).

Veil with horns: tsg veil horns in black for Enchantment
Dress: Apsara Jamini gown for Enchantment
Earrings: Schadenfreude spiral horn earrings
Choker: Lassitude & Ennui Ophelia Bow Choker

As if time went on without me

Tough matters (1)

Hello! I bring you a preview of the nifty stuff from the next round of Enchantment, the SLEEPING BEAUTY round. When I think of Sleeping Beauty, I think of how much of a p*ssy I was as a child. I saw the movie in the theaters (in a re-release, damnit), and found the final transformation of the bad fairy into a dragon TOTALLY CHILLING. I couldn’t sleep for a week after that. …And don’t even get me started on Bambi; when the mother died, my parents had to take me crying out of the theater. *cough* All childhood trauma aside, I quite like the way in which these three items interpret the theme. Dress all bound up in vines from sleeping for decades, check. Pointy hair, check. Pertinent quotation, check. Lovely, Enchantment creators, and quirkily expressive too! Read more about Enchantment over here.

Deep in my inventory...

Sneaky vintage Katat0nik things

Heh. I have a sneaky purpose for posting this outfit. The other day, Katat0nik expressed a bit of surprise that I still have one of her cute Katty Clown dolls. I said, "Actually, I have almost everything you've ever made, still, including your first-ever dress." In honor of this conversation (and the craziness of my inventory), I decided to pull out two vintage-yet-timeless Katat0nik items. Can you spot them without checking the credits? I'm wearing them with this tunic top by Czarny Kanarek for Horror Haute, such macabre cuteness!

Bright and blue

Bright

I went to We Heart Roleplay a bit ago and snagged this mesh tunic and pants from The Muses. I am a sucker for the autumnal color, and liked the weathered look of the outfit right away. Of course, then I had to wear totally impractical shoes, but they totally match my hair. Now I’m ready for a day of gingerly stepping around puddles of blood in the Drow dungeons! “If that gets on my shoes I’m going to be SO MAD.” Happy Sunday!
