Souled Out, Morphine, et al.

0

Hello, lovely ones.  I’ve been busy both in RL and SL lately.  The marking period came to an end in RL, so I was busy grading; as for SL, it’s been hunts and fairs and festivals – oh my!  One cool outfit I found in a hunt is from Souled Out for the Mysteries of the Sea Hunt.  I know – not exactly a mermaid outfit, is it?  That’s why I had to nab it and show it to you!  The outfit consists of the mesh dress *and* the boots – what a bargain for only L$5!  And you have until April 10th to find it.  I also spent some time doing the Black Crowes Hunt (how could I resist?), and picked up the really nice choker (among other jewelry in the folder) at Adoness.  Cost?  L$10.  You have just until March 25th to grab the goodies in this hunt.

My next outing was to the Luck of the Irish Gacha Fair – soooooo much good stuff there!  I picked up the awesome wings from Arise and the nicely crafted legchain from Death Row Designs.  But I wasn’t finished shopping!  Of course not.  There’s always more to grab in SL, so next up was the Skin Fair.  Isn’t this skin from Morphine just lovely?  If you’re looking for a “normal” skin – for non-roleplayers, non-goths, etc., then my pictures here don’t do Morphine’s work justice because, believe me, the skin is gorgeous.  I’m wearing Morphine’s new-for-Skin Fair Ghail skin with the add-on lipstick.  I’m also wearing lovely eyes from Morphine as well, in my favorite color – pale grey.

Truth came out with new hair recently, and I had to have this one – I love it when Truth does unusual styles!  This is Maisy (in black, of course), worn with the included buns.  They are optional, however, if you’d rather not wear them (nice touch).  In the next pic, you can see the lovely blush on the Morphine skin.  Usually, I don’t like skins with blush added; I usually find they’re too “cute” for me, but Morphine does it right here – love it!  My awesome piercings are from the inimitable Haus of Darcy.  This is an older set called Provocation, which I love because there are little unholy crosses on the lip piercings.  Provocation comes with a chest piercing as well, which you’ll notice on my chest right below the Adoness choker.  If you’re new to HoD, be advised there are three floors of older piercings at reduced prices.  Trust me, you’ll find some real bargains there for the quality of these piercings.

Violent Seduction – Criminal and Royal Star

0

It’s no secret that I’m a long-time fan of Violent Seduction.  I thank the stars above that Iki is still in SL and still designing beautiful outfits for my little avi.  So, without further ado, here are two outfits that I picked up at Gothmas by Gaslight recently.  One is new for Gothmas (I believe) and the other is new to me (coz I was away for awhile).

This is the newest outfit, Royal Star, which I purchased in the black version.  It also comes in several other lovely shades. It’s a mesh outfit, which comes in several sizes.  The dress comes with the cute little hat and ribbed tights, as well.  I’m once again wearing one of the lovely Belleza group gifts for Christmas – Mya – Pale.  I’ve added a blackish lipstick, however.  My hair and horns are from Lelutka – a fun little mesh style called Evilly in the Coalmine shade.  Yummy!  By the way, the horns are an add-on; you can wear the hair without them.

While I was at Gothmas by Gaslight, shopping at Violent Seduction, I noticed this gorgeous outfit that I had missed while I was away – Criminal – which, again, I bought in the black version.  It comes with lots of pieces – the little bow with caged veil, caged collar, the caged skirt, a transparent over skirt, the under skirt, and then a choice of sleeved or sleeveless tops, and a mesh corset.  I had to fatten up my avi a little bit to make the corset fit best, but happily my avi is mod.  My little updo hairstyle is by adoness, and my earrings and bracelet are one of my favorite jewelry sets – Schadenfreude’s Electro Cute Skull set.  Finally my shoes (worn with both outfits) are from the Little Bat – the Muertos Heels, which are color-change via HUD.  They are quite reasonably priced, too.

And here’s a closeup. 🙂  The top seems a bit out of focus; not sure why this happened.  I probably should have cleared my cache or something.  Apologies. :/

Number 500!

Yep, I have reached a milestone in my blogging “career” – 500 posts!  And what better way to celebrate than to give Des a day off? 😉  So, here’s little Kat, bringing you a beautiful gothic lolita dress from a new to me store called Adoness.

I picked up this cutie at the Black Market for only L$100.  The Black Market is a monthly sale event that includes beaucoup fabulous designers, each offering two items – one for L$100, and one for L$40.  The designers run the gamut from horror, to dolly, to mainstream fashion, so there’s something for everyone.  As I said, I couldn’t pass up this pretty lolita dress.  I’ve added some pretty new skin called Farra and matching ears from [VoiD], some awesome hooves and bracelets from Death Row Designs, and some beautiful hair from Wasabi Pills.  The hair bow comes with the Adoness outfit, which is called LilaBellis, by the way.  If you like what you see, please visit the designers listed below!

Well, I still want to do something “special” for my 500th post, but I guess it will have to wait until later.  A retrospective of Des through the years would be nice, I think.  Let’s see if I can find the time to put that together!  Until next time…

Happy hunting, gathering, shopping, etc. *mwah*!
