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.

Fantasy Faire – Moonlit

ff16_banner_one5

Helena Stringer - Fantasy Faire 2016 - Moonlit - 1
The moon so bright and full, calls to the creatures of the night. There are places to be, places to explore. The vale has lifted and new worlds have arisen from the murky depth. All creatures, big and small, hear the call, and are compelled by it. Come, it says. Explore, it says.

Fantasy Faire is now open, and you have until May 1st to explore the wonder of all 14 sims.

I was lucky to be chosen to be an official writer for the Fantasy Faire Website, so you will see me posting there, as well as Free*Style and It’s only Fashion.

I have been a long time designer friend of Alpha Auer, the owner of alpha.tribe, and she contacts me yesterday, out of the blue. Low and behold, she is in Fantasy Faire, with new and wonderful avatar art for everyone to wear. We had a good chat, and she was ever so kind to pass me a few of her items.

I am wearing one of her more tame outfits, called Les Liaisons Dangereuses. Like all of the wearable art in the store, this outfit is unisex, includes skins, hair, garments, accessories and footwear. I was called to this outfit the most out of the lot, and felt very vampiric once adorned.

I decided to soup up the skin a little with the new eyeshadows from Musa, which were also released at Fantasy Faire. You can view the options HERE. The set includes 8 shadows, for default avatars and Omega compatible mesh heads. There is also a charity pack of 3 shadows, with all proceeds going to Relay for Life.

Monday Eyeful – Miasma Eyes by #adored

1f

This week on Monday Eyeful, I have some newish eyes from #adored to show you. I will warn you, these take a bit to get use to. The Pupil is a bit higher than default, so if you like to take pictures of your face, you might want to use an eye lock. While it is challenging to wear these, if you do take pics a lot, they do give you some added personality to your shots.

Another thing I have been enjoying is the watery look to them. They made me feel sad as well, which was apt, as this post was meant to go out last monday, after I heard about the loss of our very own Starman. May your adventures forever continue in the cosmos.

These are called Miasma, and they are just so full of emotion.

They are priced L$75 per pair. System and Mesh versions are included in each pack.

Plastik has been on a real jewelry kick lately, bother in the mainstore, and at the various events they participate in. My earrings you can find at GEN-Neutral. They are obviously unisex, and come in so many colours, as is typical for all things Plastik.

Stix is at OMG! Gacha, which is a Bi-Annual Gacha Event, that is seasonally themed. There normally is something for everyone here, as it is very loosely themed, and has a lot of different designers. This skin series is called Tamsin, and has all sorts of fun makeups. There are various head appliers, as well as the standard other mesh parts.Look to the ad, or try a demo to see if these will work for you.

Cole’s Corner has another series of fun particle emitters, this time concentrating on Bokeh shapes. I really like the stars one, which I am wearing in this post. There is also Flowers, Orbs, Hexagons, Hearts and an all-in-one Mixed.

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.

Monday Eyeful – Gata Eyes by S0NG

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Song

On this week’s Monday Eyeful, I have went to the Cosmetics Fair to try my luck at the Gachas. There are many eyes this round, I was far to happy, might have played a bit too much, haha. S0NG has a set called Gata, which feel a bit otherworldy to me.

They are priced at L$50 per play. System and Mesh versions are included in each pack.

21210803651_edbcdc52c3

Additionally, I am wearing a skin from Lure. They are one of the few skin designers that continues to make alternatively colour skins. Different shades of green are the hardest for me to find, and we all know how much I love my greens.

The skins come with a barrage of appliers: #TheMeshProject, Azz, Baby Bump, Belleza, Brazilia, Lena, Loud Mouth, Maitreya, Omega, Slink, Tango, and Wowmeh(might have missed a few). There is also 2 body options, a normal and a muscled version. The Skin has the standard option of eyebrows(Black or White) or none at all.

There is a Purple and Red version of this skin, if Green isn’t your thing.

Monday Eyeful – Bizerk Eyes by !Chop Shop!

Helena Stringer - Pixel Mythos - Monday Eyeful - Chop Shop

On this week’s Monday Eyeful, I have some non human eyes, which I felt would be good for the upcoming Halloween season. They would do well for roleplay too, they sort of look like machinery parts, to me.

They are priced at L$100 per pair. System and Mesh versions are included in each pack.

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

2

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.

4

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.***
