Growing Temptation

LadyLight Koolhoven - Pixel Mythos - Growing Temptation - 1

It is funny how your avatar will evolve, and it feels like it is sudden, when you notice it. I use to collect bumble bee things and panda things, and run around the grid wearing all this super cutesie stuff. I am aware I haven’t worn any of that for a long time now, but I did notice today that I delve more into the fantasy side of things, lately. I did a good stint of urban wear for a good number of years, and while I still wear that for my daily sl tasks, it seems like I am blogging more fanciful things.

Not that I mind in the least. I love trying to make it work with my avatar, and showing others in the ethnic community that it is doable.

I want to talk about all the things I am wearing, but that doesn’t make for a fun post. I will let you know that this snake is animated, and it’s tail coils around you back and to the side.You can find him in a gacha at the new round of Fair Play.

Banana Banshee has new items, it’s owner back from the realms of the real, where she was attending to her newborn. It is great to see the new creations. These new eyes are so darn striking, and I love that they offer the dark alongside the light versions, for the Sclera.

The tiara is from Noble Creations, and is mod, so I totally modded it to suit my needs. This is what the original looks like:

Monday Eyeful – Queen Eyes by Mudskin

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Queen Eyes by Mudskin

This week on Monday Eyeful, I am showing you another find from We Love Roleplay. Mudskin has created a series of eyes, which have some very unique light shines I have not seen done before on an sl eye.

They are called Queen Eyes.

They are priced L$89 per pack of 10 colourations. These are discounted, I can’t recall what the percentage on them was, for the discount. System and Mesh versions are included in the pack.

Tomorrow is 25L Tuesday, and On a Lark has some Circlets out. One has flowers, the other doesn’t if you want a more plain look. They are currently out, prepped for the coming hoards of shoppers.

Monday Eyeful – Darks Eyes by La Boheme

Helena Stringer - FreeStyle - Monday Eyeful - La Boheme

This week on Monday Eyeful, I am excited to bring you some news. I have been a patron at La Boheme for some time now, and they have started to make eyes! As with everything they do, there are many options in each affordable pack.

These don’t have a fancy name, and are simply called Dark Eyes.

They are priced L$50(1/3 off for We Love Roleplay) per pack of 10 colorations. System and Mesh versions are included in the pack.

PicMonkey Collage
I ended up purchasing 2 packs. There is even a L$5 sampler of 2 variations, so you can try them out before you go all in and buy up all the packs.

!Musa! Aaliyah ad

It is a We Love Roleplay day, so I am also wearing the new Eyeshadow from Musa. I layered it on top of the new skin from Tuli. Tuli did an interesting thing, and created a whole Elven kit situation. You can get the base skin on it’s own, and then purchase Mesh Teeth, Mesh Ears, Lipsticks and Eyebrows on the side. The Eyebrows and super fun, due to the fact that the colours aren’t the typical colours you find out there. They are perfect for creating and elven or fae look, and should be a new staple for you, going into the upcoming Fantasy Faire season.

Monday Eyeful – DemonAngel Eyes by CNZ

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - CNZ

This week on Monday Eyeful, I have a full pack of spooky eyes for you all to play with.

These were up for grabs, for this past weekend’s round of Sixty Linden Weekend. I am not sure how long they will continue to be in the store for that price, I just checked, and it is still set at the sale price.

These are called Demon or Angel, depending on the darkness or lightness of the texture.

They are priced L$60 for the full pack(not sure what the regular price will be). System and Mesh versions are included in the pack.

CNZ

Plastik is in The Gacha Garden this month. The offering this rime around is a series of circlets, with a rare crown, rare earrings, and rare necklace. The rares are hud driven, offering many options to choose from for the gems and metals.

Monday Eyeful – Medusa Eyes by Inkheart

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Inkheart

On this week’s Monday Eyeful, I am showing you a nice little affordable eye store, that caters to all sorts of genres in sl.

There are classic eyes as well as some more otherworldly, and everything in between. Inkheart seems very community driven, being active in events and hunts. There is a generous nature to the designer, and the price points work for those on a budget, to those who can afford a little bit more.

These are called Medusa, which I felt was aptly named.

They are priced L$49 per pair. System and Mesh versions are included in each pack. There are 3 Iris sizes to choose from, included in each pack.

Medusa Eye SeriesI enjoy wearing my Kissers mesh mouth for these Eyeful posts, as it really does add a little flare to my face, and is just fun for me in general. I get to show off the newly released Kisser Doll Lips today, these being the vampire version. There are 2 others, to match the other lines, which are Orc and Open.

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.

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Death's New Face - 1

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.

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Death's New Face - 2

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.

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Death's New Face - 3

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.

Monday Eyeful – Drowned Eyed by Clemmm

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Clemmm

On this week’s Monday Eyeful, I wanted something a little spooky, since I looked so pretty like, and we can’t have that now can we!

I do collect many eyes, it is my one true downfall in second life, haha. Some people have hair, some people have shoes, many have gacha items as the crutch now. Mine is, and probably always will be, eyes. Clemmm makes some fairly unique ones, and if you don’t normally go for something Macabre/Otherwordly/Horrorish, well it is the month to try something out. The prices wont kill you either, they are affordable, which allows you more options to play with.

These are called Drowned, and are very eerie.

They are priced L$73 per pair. System and Mesh versions are included in each pack.

ENCHANTED81415CLEMMM-590x443

I bedazzled myself a little today, with items from a little known fantasy store called Noble Creations. The majority of their items are Home&Garden related, but they do make some avatar accessories. The feel of the store is Fantasy/Roleplay. The details to each piece are meticulously created, and the textures are so full of depth. All the creations here are 100% original, and worth a look.
