Venturing into the Sun

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Venturing into the Sun - 1
I have been away, doing all those thing you must do in the first life, to keep the second one going. It was just a short amount of time, but I couldn’t keep away from the blog much longer. I do enjoy it, it keeps all of the “mes” sane, when work gets too much, or the kids for that matter.

I ventured out into the sun the past weekend. I was fully covered, so the sun didn’t eat me. I wonder if being photosensitive is like the mild irritations older vampires get when they walk in the sun during the day. We got the last bit of sunday afternoon, I think. The warm is well on it’s way now.

Just a modge podge outfit, of randomness. The only thing new is the dress, which you will find at [EvelineInTheBox]. They price their releases 25% off until the next new release, so if you like it, stop by and get a deal as well! There are 6 different huds, with various colours and patterns.

My amazing lipstick started the whole look and you will find the appliers for various lips, plus the inhouse mesh lips, at Soul.

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.

Bats by Moonlight

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Bats by Moonlight - 1

Routine daily, lost inside completely
Burning flame, flowing like rain
Still night outside, filled emotions inside
I saw it, the MoonLight

Deep thoughts, thousand quotes
Soaring high above, heavy clouds move
Wandering sight, took flight
I saw it, the MoonLight

Keep this to me, or let the world see
How it feels, desire to love
Her heart, the pure secret
Yes, now I see it, the MoonLight

Random awesome pic I took, whilst playing with my water settings again.

I was playing around with some of my older hairstyles today, as I have had more than a few requests come in lately, asking for them. While putting my new hair textures on some(which will be launched at Hair Fair 2015), I decided it was time for a look.

I ended up transforming into this beauty.

Plastik has been releasing like mad lately. This dress is one of 3 new releases in the mainstore right now. As with all Plastik items, there are a bunch of colours/patterns to choose from.

View the New Releases at the stores Official Site HERE.

This bracelet is also from Plastik, part of a larger jewelry set, which is being sold at this round of Secret Affair. The set is called Mystic Shot, and the various pieces are comprised of Bullet Cartridges with Crystals in them. I can only imagine when they have been spelled with, and what you would have to use them against. These also come in various colours, sold separately, and each pack has 3 metals included.

See the Seraphim Gallery for more info, and view pictures of all the other product available at the event.

Due to my blogging nature on Free*Style, it is sometimes hard NOT to blog free items, haha. So there will be some bleeding over here from time to time. This bracelet is a free gift from Sn@tch, at the Skin Fair. It is a matching set, so there is one for each wrist.

I decided to go to the Cosmopolitan Sales round this month. There are just so many events now, it is not possible for me to get to them all. I actually went for something else, but saw these boots, and had to have them. They have a texture change hud, so you can change the leathers/patterns, as well as the soles, giving you a wide range of possibilities.

View more about this event, and current round, at their Main Site HERE.

Finally, because I wont stop until the event is done, we got Skin Fair stuff on too! These makeups are from Senzafine. They are new, each pack comes with 6 colours, and the Eyeliner Packs have matching Lip Packs. I just did some mixed combos, so you could see a few of the colours.

If you would like to see some more of the colours, or just the packs in general, please visit the Flickr Link HERE, all the Skin Fair packs are at the top.

The Eyes worn throughout the post are a new, mainstore release from Chop Shop. They are called Jaded and are a more realistic styled eye. There are 2 sizes per colouration, in the purchasable packs. The middle me has the smaller size on, the 2 outer mes have the larger size.

View the other colourations HERE.
