Death’s New Face

War, come with me now . . .

Every once in a while, death gets a new face. This doesn’t mean Death is always the same, in person and mind. Sometimes it is almost like a rebirth, a start over. Sometimes it is like a possession.

The Cycle is good, as each new Death deal’s with it’s task in a new way.

Totally Top Shelf has opened, and this round it packed full of awesomely spooky items. It’s the perfect one stop shop for the halloween season, so if you haven’t been yet, stop on by.

Souzou Eien has this Mausoleum discounted at Allhallows Showcase Festival, which inspired me to create a whole set for my blogging background. It is the first fully created one by me, I had lots of fun doing it. I have shared it with a great friend, Bambi Chicque, who is the Blogger Manager of Medieval & Fantasy Grid Crier group. She makes really great setups and processes awesome photos, so her flickr is worth a look.

These striking eyes are from a store I have actually never heard of, called TrevaH. There are a bunch of colours, and you can find them at Totally Top Shelf. while there, check out these plugs from Tabou Irresistable, I didn’t take the best pics of them, but they are covered in blood droplets. There is a nose ring that matches(not worn), also at the event. You can find the crown there too! I wasn’t kidding when I said one stop shopping. Azoury did this piece, and I thought it totally fitting, if Death decided she wanted to see a ruler of her realm.

Stix has created a skin that can be used so many different ways. I chose to be Death, but you could dress this up as a zombie too, I think. Maybe a crow, ghoul or vampire too. It works anyway, haha. As always, her skins come with ALL THE APPLIERS EVER, so much so that your inventory will explode. So if you are into having all the mesh things on at all times, this will probably work for you, just nab a demo to be sure.

I think I put on too much, there are too many things to talk about!

Eveline in the Box has come out with a series of dresses, called Starling. There are 4 variations of the dress, each coming with a hud that allows you to change the skirt portion, and the top & drape portion of the dress. These are new to the Mainstore, and you can find them right up front.

The last thing, which was a late edition to the outfit, was these wings from The Forge, for Uber.  They have steampunk/post apocalyptic elements, but I thought it sort of looked like old skin stretched in between all the metal frames, so I threw them in for kicks, haha.

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.
