LOTD #172 – Dark Dreams

LOTD 172

She paused as she walked through the temple.

Turning, she gazed at the altar, tended carefully by her obedient priests.

She smiled in the darkness.

Another post on the deliciousness that is Genre this round!

When I saw this necklace from !deviousMind, I was salivating.

It’s so gorgeous!

The corset from Faster Pussycat was near it, so it was a no-brainer to put the two of them together.

I took the first shot from behind so that you could see the stunning detail on both the necklace and the corset.

It was easy to make a complete outfit, since the corset comes with so many pieces.

There is also an additional top harness that I am not wearing in the photo.

The hair is from a previous round of On9, but I love the way it looks.

The back of loops and curls just looks so elegant.

Since I’ve been having so much fun trying on different skins, this time I went with a pale one from Glam Affair.

Of course, having them built-in to my mesh body makes matching so much easier. 🙂

I dug through my inventory and found some dark makeup I’ve found here and there to complete the look.

Be sure to head over to Genre and check out the Underworld for yourself!

LOTD #171 – Dark Underworld

LOTD 171

He faltered as she paused, turning slowly.

“You doubt my powers?” she asked in a deceptively calm voice, as the ghostly lights flickered about her.

“No, mistress,” he whispered, trembling.

Genre is an event I found long ago that has become one of my favorites.

The items are all $100L or less, so my Lindens go farther than usual.

I needed that this round, because there are so many amazing items!

The theme is “Underworld,” and though I didn’t think I would find much, I was so wrong. 😀

This drop-dead gorgeous gown is from Les Encantadas.

The bracers and shoulder pieces are included and I love the way the silver and blue complement each other.

The floating flames are from Paper Moon – I saw them advertised on Plurk and had to have them!

They come in three different versions – white (pictured here), washed out, and turquoise.

They added the perfect ghostly/arcane touch for my photo.

I am in love with this breathtaking headpiece from Black Pearls.

As soon as I saw it, I knew exactly what kind of photo I wanted to do.

I’m a sucker for horns anyway, and this piece is so well-made and intricately detailed. 😀

The stunning hair is from Truth, of course – a recent release.

The cascade of curls down the front are gorgeous, and the raven color completes the look.

The skin is another new acquisition from WoW skins, courtesy of their group lucky boards.

I wanted something paler than I usually wear and Amanda fit the bill perfectly.

Genre just opened on the 15th, so you have plenty of time to head over there and pick up some of this deliciousness for yourselves!

I am so honored to have been picked to blog for A Tattered Page (ATP) this round.

I love the whole concept of the event, and I was even more excited to learn the book for this round was Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman.

Since the book deals with the advent of the Apocalypse, the Four Horsemen put in several appearances. 🙂

Of the four, War is my favorite character.

She is characterized as a beautiful woman, who creates conflict wherever she happens to be.

“People were always fighting, over her, and around her,” War thinks, early in the book. “It was rather sweet, really.” (46)

I was blown away when I saw some of the amazing items available for this round.

I love the detail of the horns/halo set from Roawenwood and I think the juxtaposition of the horns with the halo is the perfect metaphor for War in Good Omens.

The hair from KoKoLoReS is a free gift at this year’s Hair Fair (which is ending in the next week, so if you haven’t made it there yet, hop to it!).

It comes with color change HUDs so you can make it any color under the sun.

The Stringer Mausoleum is offering “The Prophetess” makeup for tattoo layers at ATP.

It comes with a ton of colors, but the Void option was the perfect fit for this look.

The dress is another offering at ATP from Greymoon.

It comes in 4 different options – snakeskin, red snakeskin, leather with a cross design on the fabric, and plain leather, which is what I’m wearing here.

I love the cross cutout in the dress – I didn’t even have to wear the alpha layer provided and it fit perfectly!

When you stop by the Library, be sure to pick up a copy of these amazing shoes from Pale Empress.

Appropriately named War, they are for Slink High feet and come with a HUD that offers a ton of options.

I love the details on the front, the skull and the bullets – again, so apropos for the character of War.

This round of ATP only runs until July 31st, so make sure to stop by before it ends.

If you like British humour and satire, I encourage you to read the novel!

LOTD #126 – Final Shoot

LOTD 126She looked past the photographer, a million thoughts running through her mind.

She was so glad this would be her final shoot.

She needed a vacation.

Her flight to Fiji was booked, and she would be on her way as soon as she was done here.

She couldn’t wait.

LOTD #52

LOTD 52Since today is the last day of the traveling/color week, I thought I’d end it with a splash.

I wanted to do something wearing black and white.

I knew just the outfit – I’ve had this costume laying around in my inventory forever (since 2011, according to the name of the outfit).

Wearing a jester hat and looking like a mime, where else could I travel to but Mardi Gras?

A little late, I know, since it was earlier this week, but better late than never, right?

Today’s colors are black and white and I traveled to Mardi Gras for this pic.
