Worlds Collide

Story Time with Helena:

When making this outfit today, once completed, I sort of felt a bit like a Red Queen. I naturally started to look for possible on site locations where I could shoot. I don’t make my own locals, like some talented bloggers do. I just don’t have the space for that sort of thing on my sim. So I have to go forth, look on the grid, and find something to my liking. Sometime search is my friend. Sometimes it hates me.

So I typed in castle, and it brings up all sorts of interesting things. I often have to visit 30 locations, before finding something I can work with. I only had one stop this time. A location named Red Queen popped up, and it had castles! It had to be the perfect sim for a Fantasy Queen!

Sometimes it pays to actually read the location ads. It was a store that sold castles.

Never fear though, I am good with making things work. Even if they seem like utter opposites that should never work.

I’m not sure the intent of the store owner, when choosing the name she did for her store. Most of the builds have a gothic/vampire feel to them, so I thought the name more of a higher up vamp, bathed in blood, worshiped by her underlings.

I was pleasantly surprised to be greeted by zombies, and having to run a laser gauntlet to get to the store. I didn’t have sound on, but I’m sure there is some creepy girl child telling me that we would all die down there.

So Red Queen meets Red Queen meets Red Queen.

Worlds Collide!

Totally Top Shelf is open, and the general theme this round is “Realms”. There are so many different things, as each designer took inspiration from a different novel/gameboard/videogame. Most of what I have on is pieced together from the event.

This Chainmail Collar from Azoury has to be one of my favorite items in a long time. It doesn’t stop gleaming.

I got lucky today, as I was extra horny, more so than usual.

A horned crown and head horns. Why, what were you guys thinking I was talking about?

The other side of the sword is more ornate, but I have to admit, I normally don’t have hand weapons on, so lack the proper poses for showcasing them. Everything I had that sort of worked, made it look like sword porn.

The real reason for the start of this post in the first place was the new skins from Dulce Secrets, at Skin Fair 2014.

There are 3 new lines, in 5 tones each. I am really enjoying the Claire line, but they all suit my face, which was nice. No Tweaks Needed!

Dulce Secrets also has an Exclusive Makeup pack at the Skin Fair. It’s called “On the Horizon”, has a bunch of colourations, and comes with pearls which you can choose to wear as an attachment.

 Pin me Down is also at the Skin Fair with Exclusives. This is a makeup you can get, either in Black or White, that have the full face layer, or just eyes and just lips. They are mod too, so you can tint them if you so choose.

Not a new items, but more of a new-to-me item, I got these eyes from Inkheart while on a hunt. I have to say I love them. The store has a different sort of pricing structure, so I am not sure if these were on sale, or were on of their more expensive items. They were only L$49, but were one of their higher priced items??? I’m not going to complain!  If you want something striking and different, stop by the shop, they have a lot of more natural lines, then a few that are more fantasy.
