Can’t no preacher man save my soul

(Listen)

Hi darlings! Ohhh let’s see what I have for you today… I don’t remember exactly when it was that I discovered ISON.  I think it was back during the vintage fair when I found his leather leggings and fell in love.  Since then, I have been an avid admirer of Harry Hyx’s work & creations.  I have yet to find something at ISON that I don’t like.  At any rate, just for the hell of it, I went back to culture shock after it opened (despite having been an invited blogger and seeing a lot of the vendors before it was open) because I hadn’t had the opportunity to see ISON before it opened, and I fell in love.

So yeah, today is mostly about ISON.  I hope you all enjoy his new stuff as much as I do!  I paired it with a tattoo from one of my very best friend’s new store, Lue Moonshadow’s Brat Inc, and the newest hair from Truth!

(Listen)

Hello hello chickadees!  I have some very exciting news for you!  I was invited to blog Culture Shock 2012 and give you a sneak peak at some of the goodies that you’ll be able to pick up!  This is the second year of Culture Shock, a CHIC Management event sponsored by MODAVIA Productions with proceeds going to Medicins Sans Frontieres (Doctors without Borders).  Last year, over $1 million linden was raised!

Every store has a mandatory participation of one NEW and EXCLUSIVE (for the duration of the event) item that gives 50 – 100% of the profits to the charity!

Culture Shock will be up and running May 4th through May 26th.  Please keep in mind that there is a script gate at the landing point.  Only 50 scripts or less must be worn in order to enter the event to help reduce lag.

Thank you to Keira Seerose, Anyalia Pearl, Kristy Seerose, and Prue Genira for all of your work for this event and charity!

I cannot wait to show you all what I found at culture shock!  Since I have so many different goodies for you, it will be spread among a few posts, with two looks per post.  Have fun and I hope you all enjoy!

Hi loves! I have some goodies for you today– unfortunately, not much of what I’m wearing is all that new, aside from the body co skin that I also blogged yesterday & some Mandala accessories.  I fiddled with my shape and I’m *much* happier with how this skin looks on me now!  Hooray!  At any rate, I don’t have much to talk about, so I’m going to go ahead and get on with the pictures & details for today’s look.

Hi my sweet little chickadees!

Ohhh let’s see, what goodies do I have for you today, hmm.  Well, I’m currently in love with these shoes from Diktator.  You all saw my previous post that I made about a month ago where I displayed Diktator’s “Obey” heels (with that sickeningly awesome spine heel), but these are another lovely pair of hot shoes that I’m enjoying prancing around in.  In addition, I paired the shoes with a few oldies that I found in my inventory, and the newest body co. skin, “Ivy,” which is a phenomenal skin imo, and I hope you’ll enjoy as much as I do!

Once Upon A Time…

(Listen)

Hello loves!  So today’s post is not quite so much about fashion, because I was inspired from another source instead that I’m super excited to share with you, that source being the sim that I have taken up RPing at!

The Fallen is a Sim that’s only been open a short amount of time – approximately 2 months give or take, and has brought together some of the most absolutely amazing minds of the RP community.  I have honestly thoroughly enjoyed the time I’ve spent there, and so I wanted to talk a little about it today because the whole point of blogging what we see in SL is to alert everyone we know to the awesomeness that can be found out there!

First things first, the owner & creator of the Fallen is this fellow named Dominic Darkmatter.  He’s pretty epic.  I’m not going to write much about him because it’s cheesy since he’s my boyfriend (though, he wasn’t at the time I applied to RP there!), except to say that you all should know the entire concept and pretty much everything else I’m going to write about this place is due to his amazingly talented & creative brain.  So yes, now that we’ve got that covered…

The Fallen takes place in the fictional city of Charm, and the entire sim itself is a Dark Urban playground that takes place ten years after a war between Angels & Demons, in which the Demons came out the victors, ready to reclaim Heaven until they realized that both Lucifer and God had mysteriously disappeared.  Charm, of course, is a city in which we find ourselves as characters dealing with the aftermath of that war.  The actual backstory to The Fallen is so intricately weaved, so incredibly detailed and such a labyrinth of classic mythology and new fabricated stories that it would literally take me forever to type it all here, so I’m going to stop there and let the rest of you do the research yourself if you’re interested!

There are approximately six races to choose from, each race having various ‘subraces’ or classes, if you will, that help you determine how your character will be fleshed out.  In addition to that, each race has been thoughtfully given its own ‘psychology’, if you will, to help players really figure out the motives behind each race in Charm, along with basic strengths & weaknesses for character creation.  And on top of that, as if it weren’t enough, there is also a detailed compilation of how magic appears and can be used within Charm.  There is no meter in Fallen – this is no CCS or DCS sim, no combat huds, just straight up creativity that doesn’t rely on whether or not you’re lagging or how fast you can click a mouse.  But enough, because honestly me rambling about it won’t convince you to try it out.  I really do encourage anyone interested in RP to head over to Fallen & check it out for yourselves!  As with other RP sims, observer tags are provided for anyone interested in exploring what Fallen has to offer.  But I am sincerely proud of Dom & everyone involved in helping this sim come to fruition– watching the numbers grow over the past few weeks or so has been amazing, and I’m honored that I get to be counted among the numbers of people who spend so much time in a place that was created with so much love and excitement!

SO, with allllll of that said, the pictures I have for you today are of me in my RP gear, taken on-site, to show you around the City of Charm a little bit!  My character is an Angel, so I wore my wings for the occasion.  Also, I hope you enjoy the snow (which Dom was so freaking excited about, hooray weather systems in SL!) that makes Charm so festive :P So, as always, I hope you enjoy!

Calling, calling, calling me home

ALRIGHTY!

I don’t have much to say about today’s look.  It was freezing here, and it’s been really super windy.  Not at all unusual here, this is the right time of year for Santa Ana winds, however usually they’re warm.  So I look out my window today thinking it will be warm because it’s beautiful and sunny, but WABAM, I get hit in the face with frigid cold air and nipples that could cut glass (was that tmi? >.>)  ANYWAY…  So since I was cold, my avatar  needed to be cozy :)  So at any rate, here’s the look & I hope you all enjoy it!

Hello my loves!

So today’s post has a guest!  That’s right, I do not appear alone!  So that means two looks for you, and I hope you enjoy them because I enjoyed putting them together.  I do regret the editing I had to go through on these pictures though because it took me a rather long time and I’m afraid they look a tad silly, BUT… the ‘A Very Rotten Christmas’ hunt came with a two person pose from Contraption that I’ve been dying to use!  So, with that said, I will get on with the pictures and show them to you.  Introducing me…and my evil twin! — yes, I’m that lame, that I featured myself twice.  Go with it :P

So yes, these two looks are based around the pose that comes with the free goodies from Contraption in the AVRC hunt!  :D  I had fun snapping this photo and less fun editing it.  As my friend Colin can attest, at one point I had to snapshot myself without hair so that it wasnt sticking through my torso anddd caught a rather AMAZING picture of my avi with her eyes closed, mouth wide open in a laugh, and bald.  It was pretty hot.  No, I’m not showing you that picture :P

I wear my heart upon my sleeve, like a big deal.

(Listen)

So I had an outfit that I wanted to blog for you lovely people, but I similarly had a lot of things I wanted to talk about and address.

Therefore, I’m going to be randomly blogging them in somewhat rapid succession (as in maybe 3-4 posts over the next 24 hours — some people TYPICALLY blog that in one day, but for me that is a lot!)

So there’s not much for me to say about this look.  I’ll let the pics do the talking, and just hope that you enjoy it!  I would like all of you to know how much I am enjoying Lara Hurley’s newest skin, Emma, which I blogged previously, but I have decided instead to change my skins often so that you can see a variety of ‘looks’ and not get bored with me wearing the same skin in every post :)  There are so many amazing skins out there and I want you to see them so that you can take advantage!

Anyway, I shall stop rambling and get on with it :>
