Thinking in the Dark

1
Soul lost in thought of centuries past
Mourning family and loved ones long gone
Inescapable bitterness of immortality
Kingdoms rise and fall, man toils on
Generation by generation
To what end? A purpose defined by mortal confines
Escapes the grasp of a timeless mind
Thinking weakened by bloodlust
The delicate balancing act of sanity

Death, She Rides

1

When the Lamb broke the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come.” I looked, and behold, an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth.

The Bible – Revelation 6:8

I’ve had this outfit in my inventory for a good week, and just have been too busy to do anything with it. Before I shoot more ads today, I decided I better get this up, so I hope you enjoy.

The skin and hand appliers are from Horror Haute, which just closed until the next round. I just didn’t get this up before it closed, but be sure to find the items in the stores.

3

The Horns with the eyeballs are from The Horror, and are really fun. There is a texture change hud, so you can change the horns as well as the eyeballs.

I’m also wearing a few things from the current round of Genre. You have until April 11th to visit, before they close down for the next round. This round is biker themed, and the designers have gone all out with their items.

Supernatural has a few bodysuits for those of you who are a bit more adventurous in your attire, while on your rides. There are appliers for Banned, TMP and Omega, for those of you with mesh parts.

Vengeful Threads has a outfit there that is easily parted out and mixed up with other things from the event. I am wearing the pants and belt. Closeup of the belt below, as it had so much going on, you just had to see the details.

Lots going on, haha.

5

These babies are from Deadpool. There are some other versions as well, without the iron cross, if the symbolism of it is just not your thing.

***Added Note – Some of the events I picked these items at came to a close recently. While TPing around to check slurls, not all items were out. I think due to the holidays, designers are a bit lagged with getting things out in the mainstores, so please be patient, if you are looking for a certain item.***

Skin Fair 2015 – Deesses & RazzaNova

Skin Fair 2015 - Deesses - Fashion Shot
Skin Fair is about to start on the 13th of March. I had the opportunity to go through the sim, on blogger preview, and will be covering some of the new products you will see there in the next few days.

Deesses is a new store for me. I have to admit to never hearing about it, on any of the various media I often frequent.

I’m slightly surprised, as the Label carries a really nice darker tone range, which is something I am always looking for.

Today you will meet Stacey.

Skin Fair 2015 - Deesses - Stacey - All Tones
Stacey comes in 8 tones. Please click to enlarge.

From left to right:

Cold Milk, Flat White, Ice Frappe, Cappuccino, Milky Coffee, Caramel Mocha, Hot Chocolate and Coffee.

Skin Fair 2015 - Deesses - Stacey - Breast Options
The Tone packs come with 1 bare skin, with Bald, Black, Blonde, Brown and Red Eyebrows. You also get the shape, shown here in this post. They also have 2 extra cleavage options, shown above.

From left to right:

Skin in the pack, Cleavage 1, Cleavage 2.

Cleavage 2 has less under boob, and more highlight, at least it looks that way to me.

Skin Fair 2015 - Deesses - Stacey - Lip Palette 1
You can purchase addon packs, for lip options. Above is all the colours from the Lipstick Palette #1. They come with 5 colours each, and have version for both dark and light skins. These are Tattoo Layer only.

There are 4 Palettes to choose from, specifically created to work with the Stacey Skin line.

Appliers for Slink Hand and Feet are available.

Skin Fair 2015 - RazzaNova Eyes

The great thing about Skin Fair is that you will also find things to complete you look, for any new skin you may buy.

RazzaNova has a few lines of mesh eyes at their booth. These are from a series simply named Ultra Realistic Mesh Eyes. There are no system eyes in the pack, just the mesh ones. Included is a hud, and you get all 8 of the above colours.

Celebrate

I miss my laptop =(

So obviously due to the fact that I have to deal with taking crappy pics, I wont be using my normal blogging template. Also, to hide the fact that the pics are bad, I have taken some creative license with the photos, while still trying to keep the items I am showcasing as close to what they would look like in SL.

My efforts sort of look like a LadyLight post, haha, but we will just have to go with it for now.

Celebrate

There are very few stores I am an official blogger for. This is mostly just due to my store coming first. I do have a few designers who have insisted over the years, not minding my sporadic coverage. I have a few others that are willing to give me a chance, even with me not being able to cover every single item when it comes out.

One of these stores is Chop Shop. I am a lover of all things eyes, and that is what you will mostly find at this store. I was a long time purchaser, and eventually was invited to be an official blogger.

The thing that drew me to the store was mostly the creativity. As a collector of eyes, it is very easy to see the same things on the grid. Sure you can have 100 stores with lovely eyes, but if they are all normally based, how many ice blue eyes do you really need? and how often would you wear the different ones?

When I am not designing for my own label, or blogging, I am typically some form of half demon, half humanoid type thing. I do throw in other bits of fantasy creatures here and there.

The one thing I have always tried to look for, are unique eyes. If I have to go run to meet a client/customer, event organizer/so on, I do throw on something a bit more normal, take of my tentacles, and tp to their location. One thing I like to maintain, to stay true to my inner second self, is my eyes. I like for them to stay unique, and not totally normal.

Chop Shop provides with for me. Not only do they carry a regular series of eyes, but they also have lots of unique ones to choose from.

The store is also relatively new, in terms of how long I have been on the grid. Clocking in at just over a year old, I feel this store could use a bit more exposure.

The eyes really are lovely, and they match most of my hair colours, haha.

The eyes that started this whole look are these “Love Me?” eyes in Blue Lightning. They are a gacha item, and I am busting the lid off of one of the Mystery Rares, as that is what the Blue Lightning is. There are still a few more Mystery Rares to collect. The rest of the gacha line you can view HERE. If you would like to see what else this store has to offer, while not on the grid, feel free to browse the rest of the flickr feed HERE.

The little heart ring is another item from Chop Shop, which also happens to be a gacha item. You will find it, and the eyes, as the newly opened “Streets of Love” event.

eye

Excuse the crap resolution, the eyes really are more lovely inworld, you will just have to go play the gacha, haha. There were basically screen shots, as I can’t save photos from sl right now.

I had been meaning to wear this outfit long before now. It is one of a few colourations being offered at Genre, by !deviousMind. This round is themed Celebration, because it was Genre’s BDay. The event is now going into it’s 3rd year, which is great. I have long loved being a part of it.

!deviousMind is another store that has never been afraid of colour. Not many places will make bright yellow items, never mind it being burlesque styled balloon getups. I originally was just going to do the head shot, but had to show you the back bustle bit, haha. I was actually dancing on in my design studio, just to watch the confetti swish around. Until I crashed. #Helenasadfacewantslappybackhome

The outfit is called Party, there are a bunch of colours. Each pack comes with a plethora of appliers, layers, items. It really would be too much to go into, but just one outfit will explode you inventory, with the amount of stuff that is in there.

Genre is open until the 12th Feb. All items are L$100 or less. This round, due to it’s special theme, has various designers offering a L$10 promo item.

Party Time

I’ve been wanting to open the blog with something spectacular and fantasy oriented, but it just hasn’t worked out that way for me.

I really wanted to blog this outfit, and it didn’t fit any of my other places I blog, so here we are.

Pixel Mythos - Helena Stringer - Party Time - 1

I have a little dress like this irl, though the one I have is cranberry. I was super excited when this one showed up on my sl doorstep.

Pixel Mythos - Helena Stringer - Party Time - 2

I have been wearing this skin, in the different makeup options, for a few days now. I normally get Dulce Secrets skins for my alt, as it is one of the only place with darker tones(Ladylight is generally dark) that aren’t a mish mashed pixellated mess of stitched together RL photos. I don’t mind realistic skins, but I think sometimes there is a line, and it gets crossed often in our digital world. These come with Slink and Omega Appliers.

Pixel Mythos - Helena Stringer - Party Time - 3

Rings are something I wear often, and I have just started to carry that over into sl, the last few years. This little ring is unisex, and has various colour options for the metals available.

Not my normal Demony fair, but I do love me some other fashion from time to time.
