I sound like a self-help book

Shoulder Cthulhu

What do you want to be when you grow up? I’ve decided that I want to do everything. I guess the best way to do it is to be self-employed, right? I want to be so responsible for my own goals and destiny that I never have downtime, never feel at a loss, never feel a lack of purpose. The last three or so years were really good for paying off debt, but in return I’m 41 and feel like I’ve build nothing. I think the next decade will be devoted to building something meaningful, no matter how frivolous. I will achieve goals, because what the hell else should I do with my life?

All existential unemployed ramblings aside, I have a shoulder Cthulhu. It likes to prod me in the eye with stray tenticles. Perhaps unsurprisingly, I am still all decked out in stuff from World Goth Fair.

Articulated digits

Goth all month

Look at the delicate hand position of my gloves! I admit I’m really digging the scripted gloves that exist nowadays. I feel like I can go to the ball and meet the prince in these — and even pick his nose if I set my hand position correctly! … Anyway. Yep, I’m still looking like this. World Goth Day was apparently yesterday, and I think the most important lesson that comes from raising awareness of any subculture is simply, don’t be shallow. We’re all human here, just appreciate.

In the words of Winston Churchill...

The Little Bat coat

I always remember a slightly creepy preacher using them in his sermons, but really -- what are sermons for if not to keep people feeling strong? "Never, never, never, give up!" I guess it's time to use my brain a little. Anyway, all RL aside, I dig this coat/shirt combo from The Little Bat, especially with these spats from Aftershok. Both are at World Goth Fair, where I've been parking my avatar lately. Cheeers!

World Goth Fair (7)


It was kind of weird to go from being a fox to being a pony to being a girl again, but here I am, all dressed up in pretty gothy things. I especially like this set of jewelry from House of Rain today. These ear thongs would probably look just awesome with elf ears, but for the life of me I couldn't find where I'd hidden mine, and then I had to photo and run, so I couldn't stop and hunt around. Still, they're awesome, and the gems and leather are hud-changing and come with an array of colors. And that having been said, I'm going to crawl back in bed for a while.

Jewelry: House of Rain Love Hurt Bleed earring and neckalce set for WGF
Skirt: Pale Empress Severina skirt in purple for WGF
Gloves and shirt: ISD Poppaea outfit laced gloves and top in Porphura for WGF
Eyes: Ellabella Phantasm eyes in pale one for WGF
Piercings: Ellabella Saint - Hella for WGF

hya at work!

Bonus shot! I was hanging out with pretty hyasynth the other day in her skybox, while she was working on her adorable dragons. We look so "Nouveau style," don't we, on our mix of Allegory & Jackal's things...

The painted ponies go up and down

Horsey avatar for GENRE

Yesterday, if you remember, I was a little red fox. I don’t remember if I said anything. Today I’m a pink carousel horse, which is kind of totally ironic because I spent the whole day at Universal. I mean, IRL. (If it was possible to wear an SL avatar IRL, boy, wouldn’t life be different?) … So, GENRE’s round is all about furries. See all the furry-oriented offerings here at Seraphim!
