There are things that leave me speechless, searching for words. This is one of them. I have known Eku Zhong for quite some time now and always thought she was an amazingly funny, cheerful and helpful person. To find out that she is so sick it is threatening her life was humbling, putting the daily grievances so many of us have into perspective. Once Eku gave the permission for it, there is now an event in the planning to help her get a prosthesis so her skull does not accidentally kill her. I wish I was kidding. You can read more about all this in the Unhinged blog.
While preparing for the event, we’ve been taking promo pictures with skulls. I snapped this one while posing for Elysium Hynes, who is the blogger organizer for the event. …fine, guess I can wield the title as well, but we all know I’m mainly just proofreading texts with a red pen.
The event will be from November 15th to December 15th, it’s going to be a gacha festival with the obvious skull theme. You can find more information and applications on the website: merchants, entertainers, and bloggers.

There isn’t actually any chocolate — mint or otherwise — in this post, the colour combination just reminded me of it so much that I got cravings for some. The look itself is all about autumn when you do already want to wear more for the cold and rain, but don’t have to wrap yourself up in heavy coats just yet.
The pictures are taken in SLOW sim where you can also find NODe+ shop that sells these umbrellas. They have arm poses as usual, open and close and even come with rain, of which there was plenty in the sim. I tried to catch some drier moments for pictures, so ignore the fact that she’s prancing about with an umbrella without a drop of rain on the water.
There’s several new releases here: Muriel boots by Dare Designs, Softpaw Glasses by ::: Krystal :::, Tiffany hair by Alice Project, new group gift earrings by Maxi Gossamer and the latest fishing outfit by Sn@tch. The fishing outfit comes with stockings, shoes and earrings, but I wanted warmer tights and boots for this look. The hair comes with Alice’s trademark colour change HUD of countless fantastic choices and is available in Collabor88.
As for the minty skin, it’s one of the Glam Affair gacha ones from The Arcade. Remember that it’s ending soon, so if you don’t yet have everything you want it’s time to go play!

The title is a combination of the name of the first lingerie set, Dementia by Dare Designs, and the collar and the jacket by Zibska called NoName. Dementia is a new release with several layer options, also considerably skimpier ones, but I felt like styling these in a more vintage fashion. After all, it’s soon time for Vintage Fair!
Why yes, yes they are skulls in the collar and jacket. I’d imagine either could be styled into a very fashionable bad-ass look, but after I saw the Maeve lingerie below and the Dementia above, I knew I wanted to take vintage pin-up pictures. There’s something irresistible in the aesthetic: a mix of class, enticement and attitude.
Zibska’s jacket, collar and Maeve-lingerie are available in Vanity Fair, which will run until 11th August. Better hurry over and check it all out before the other events begin: it’s going to be a busy month.

May is the month for goths this year! The WGD Nightstalker Hunt has already started and runs through the whole month. The starting point is here. The World Goth Fair will open on 15th May, so the hunt is an excellent way to kill time while waiting. I took the picture before my week of no internet, so none of it is from the hunt or fair, but I wanted to pose with the posters, so pose I did~

I’m sure it’s no surprise that one of my favourite forms of steampunk is the airship piracy one. It combines the dashing romantic piracy with flying and you all know how I love all things related to flying.
The latest release by Dare Designs, Adrenaline, was the perfect uniform for my pirate captain. The rows of buttons and the shoulderpads just called for one. It comes with boots, but I used these overknee lassitude & ennui ones instead. The black snakeskin simply spoke to me.
I doubt the outfit was meant solely for pirates, the hat is my own addition. (Old hunt gift by AZE Designs.) I just tend to look at things and see characters. This also provided the perfect opportunity to remind everyone that Steam the Hunt ends soon. Just a few more days to pick up, say, this fantastic mini-airship by Bondar-Foehammer Aerosteam Co.
As for the make-do hangar I simply used one of the gorgeous skyboxes by Spessart and made some of the walls and ceiling transparent. For the jewelry I wanted fancy skulls. Donna Flora’s Opera Skull provided the perfect solution. With the accessorizing complete, it’s finally time to fly~

I wasn’t going to blog today, but then I bought a coat. Then I needed a fun place to pose in. Then I glanced at the Great SL Photo Hunt list and… well, here we are. Three themes in two pictures: #76 something old and #77 something new, both happening in a version of #9 you at the Eiffel Tower.
The traditional Eiffel Tower is situated in Les Champs-Elysees and I paired it with this gorgeous Dark December dress by Dare Designs. It is at the moment in one of his Fashion for Life vendors, so go shop while the event is still running! I’d also like to point out that Lassitude & Ennui stays in style through the centuries: both girls are wearing Jackal’s boots!
The more modern version of Eiffel Tower can be found here. It’s called Eiffel Tower 2012 and it’s created by Colpo Wexler. It was quite a sight and contrast to the old Paris sim. As for the coat — that is the thing that started this all. New mesh trench coats by Aoharu. I want more mesh clothes that go for the slinky shape instead of adding poofy layers over the system shape. So much love. <3

Why yes, yes this is yet another Twisted Hunt post. It’s not my fault there’s so much awesome arcane stuff! There was about gazillion drow skins, too, so of course I had to make at least one of those. This particular drow seems to be a mix between an assassin and a priestess, perhaps an unholy woman warrior of sorts…
The dragon with the ruins and hoard is by Curvasive Designs and was absolutely irresistible as a background setting. The outfit with a hood and mantle (and many other options not visible here) is by Dare Designs and worked oh so well with the skin and ears by The Little Bat. The tattoos are a part of the skin.
I added an altar by Roawenwood and a collection of obvious arcane substances by The Fooding to the setting, to appeal to the sacrificing priestess side of the drow. I couldn’t resist the dagger by Sacred Fantasy, though, so I let her play with sharp objects as well.
Disclaimer: no prim babies — two-headed monsters or otherwise — were harmed during these shoots, they’re just posing! This picture is actually for the Great SL Photo Hunt, number 37: you holding a prim baby. No one said how to hold it! I don’t know anyone with one, this is as close to one as Sonya will ever get and this little monster was a freebie in the Marketplace, so… tadah!

Fashion for Life has started and this year the sims are themed around time. I got a giggle out of finding Finnish aika amongst them, although the event itself is of course very serious. I’m sure you all know about the old Relay for Life events, benefitting American Cancer Society. This is them, just rebranded. In the spirit of time and finding the cure, I give you a thief of time: stealing it for those who need it most.
The latex Scorch outfit by Dare Designs makes the perfect look for a superhero fighting cancer. The precious time in her hands is actually a ring from the “It’s Time” set by Tres Beau.
As for the arcane portal she uses to travel through space and time, it’s the Twisted Hunt prize by Snow Bound. It comes with smaller portals and instructions how to link them together to use it all as actual portal system in your home sim.
While she works to give people more time it’s up to others to find the cure. Go shop. It’s definitely worth it.

…yeahno, nothing of the rest. This is Halloween! Not any other occasion. Besides, these days the ‘something blue’ part just makes me think of TARDIS. Anyways! Two Halloween looks for fun and amusement. One features one of the old classics that I still like to wear when given a chance and another something that I picked yesterday from the latest round of Project Themeory.
The bone corsetry outfit and masks by Acid & Mala are in Project Themeory’s Halloween round. I added a blood layer by The Plastik and a huge mess of hair by Sky Everett to it. Both the black skin with the white diagonal mask on it and the pure white skin below are by Nuuna’s Skins, as are the black eyes. The scythe is an old hunt gift by J.I.N.X. and the pose is by p4p.
This dress is the very first I ever bought from Dare Designs, somewhere in spring 2009 and I still love it for classic slinky-goth evil looks. <3 The hat is by Grim Bros., the kitty-head candy bowl by Schadenfreude, the spider-ring by .( bewildebeest ). and the spider choker by G Field (a part of the subscribo gift). Eyes by Repulse, hair by Lamb, pose by Olive Juice and the make-up a mix of M.O.C.K. Cosmetics and Frick’s tattoo layers. The house used in both pictures is a group gift by Zacca.
Oh, and yes, I did indulge in filters like candy. For the holiday. <.<

I do! I went to Dark Eternity today to take pictures for The Daring Fashion Contest and now I can’t decide which picture to send, alas. The contest entry version won’t have the diffuse glow filter on it, since they prefer the shots with minimal or no photoshopping, but I went ahead and played around for the blog post. The look just called sort of… unnatural tones and sheen on the skin underneath the latex.
Obviously the latex outfit and spikes are by Dare Designs, but I added the boots made of
sex mesh by SLink to them.
Hair is by Mirror and the cross-make-up is by Nuuna’s Skins — I’m obviously rather in love with them. The skin itself is by LAQ. I’m sort of leaning toward this picture, it shows more of the sim and is a close-up of the latex, hm…
This one isn’t even in the consideration, shows too little of the outfit and the fun cross-effect, but I wanted to take one from behind as well. What little you can see of the eyes are by Repulse and the poses in order are by Niqotine Poses (1&2) and Vain Inc. (3) Now I just have to decide…
