Slithering in the White Nights

Sun is returning from its long sleep. These are the nights to be careful when it barely sets, lingering stubbornly around, threatening the night-dwellers with its radiance without a moment of rest.

slithering2bs

We become bound indoors: draw heaviest of curtains, head to the basements, perhaps even journey to south where they still have proper nights even in the summer.

Unless one happens to be either extremely adventurous or inexcusably lazy, or a bit of both. Then you can rely on learning where and when the burning rays draw their blazing patterns and which parts of the terrace are safe for a few hours.

slithering3bs

The white nights are warm, the light merely a soft haze instead of invading rays. The sensation — or perhaps the promise of danger in the silent air — makes even borrowed blood run faster in the cold veins, makes long cold limbs stretch and slither and bask in the shadow of the sun once more. Just for the summer.

The body suit is a part of an outfit by SAKIDE and the snake jewelry and shoes are by House of Rain, both available in World Goth Fair. The tattoo by Fallen Gods Inc. can be won in a gacha at Fantasy Gacha Carnival.

Unlikely Eve

“If you consent, neither you nor any other human being shall ever see us again; I will go to the vast wilds of South America. My food is not that of man; I do not destroy the lamb and the kid to glut my appetite; acorns and berries afford me sufficient nourishment. My companion will be of the same nature as myself and will be content with the same fare. We shall make our bed of dried leaves; the sun will shine on us as on man and will ripen our food. The picture I present to you is peaceful and human, and you must feel that you could deny it only in the wantonness of power and cruelty.” – Frankenstein, chapter 17

creature1bs

The neverborn mate of the creature, the culmination of his plan to make peace with mankind, the symbol of hope and happiness that companionship brings to the lonely. What if she was not destroyed half-formed, what if Frankenstein kept his word and let his creature escape the civilization with his newborn mate into the warmer wilds than Europe can offer?

creature2bs

She would know nothing of the humans except the horror stories her mate bestows upon her to warn her away. To her eyes neither of them look monstrous for she’d have nothing to compare to nor any shocked reactions to prove such judgments correct. How long would she stay innocent, this unlikely Eve of crafted dead flesh brought to life again?

Perhaps it would all work out like the creature dreamed, perhaps they could have been happily lost in their own paradise. Unless, of course, one day her matured curiosity lured her out of the jungle and into the light…

A Tattered Page is a new in-store event that draws its inspiration from books. The first round focuses on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and you can find the shopping guide from the website. The creature skins with stitches are event exclusive by Fallen Gods Inc., sold for the event duration together with the non-exclusive unstitched cadaver skin, courtesy cadaver eyes and a mountain load of appliers for both genders.

The Violet Vision

It is all about the vision. Do you see in the dark? Do you see the sights in the night? Do you see the pathways, the dance, the invitation? Do you see where it all leads?

welcome2bs

Are you one of the dark-dwelling folks, the ones who hiss at daylight and awaken truly at night? Do you believe black is fully acceptable colour for any occasion any time of year? Do your eyes see violet and never shrink?

welcome3bs

In that case, ladies and gentle folk, I may have an event just for you. Welcome to World Goth Fair 2014: come get your goth on!

Little Helper

I know it’s not yet December, that’s the whole point. Did you really think we bother checking on people then? Everyone expects us around that time. The point is to keep an eye on people around the year, not just for one month.

littlehelper3bsSo, I hope you have tried your best to get to the right list this year. I assure you that the difference between rum bottles and pink oversized sweaters is very clear. The Little Helper Division always follows the rules. We know that if we don’t, there’ll be brown quilting in our future.

littlehelper1bsFor your sake we better have very clear documents and proof on your general level of naughtiness. If we don’t you better hurry, dress in black and indulge in some gothic debaucheries right this moment. We have house appliances in storage if you don’t.

littlehelper2bsWe don’t even have to check our list twice, because we happen to be sufficiently efficient the first time. You just watch out, because Sandy Claws is coming to town and Gothmas is just around the corner!

Gothmas by Gaslight is indeed just around the corner, opening December 15th. Blogger applications are still open if you are so inclined. (Black -is- a festive colour.) The boots and the corset are both by :{MV}: – boots available in Shoetopia and the corset in Genre. The hair and nails by Adoness can be purchased in The Thrift Shop. The feather pauldrons by Zibska are from The Men’s Department. The lipstick by Beautiful Freak is an extremely early teaser for Gothmas by Gaslight and not available yet.

It’s Raining Shoes

“I was bathing! What in the name of Verne is this… rain of shoes? You! Squirrel with goggles! What is going on and who can I complain to?”

rainingshoes1cs“No, see, Miss, there was an unfortunate mistake of an accident kind, completely accidental and the ship that was transporting these shoes sort of kind of maybe possibly blew up. Nothing to worry about, I think the crew got away safely, I just got lost in the winds.”

rainingshoes2cs“You can’t have shoes falling on people when they are relaxing! I am writing a few choice words to the Air Trade Companies right this minute and-“

“Nonononono, see, um, all the shoes? The officials think they are destroyed. Unless you tell them, of course. All destroyed. No one will care if you happen to take them home. Best designer shoes on the market. Stay silent and you can have all the shoes!”

rainingshoes3bs“All the shoes? Seriously?”

“Aaaaaaaaall the shoes.”

Shoetopia is open and it is indeed metaphorically raining shoes. These pictures feature some of the shoes by lassitude & ennui, Alice Project, KoiKoi, Bliensen + MaiTai and BOOM. The tippy-toe high feet are the latest foot model by Slink, also released at Shoetopia and available for shoe-makers to begin making really high heels with and for. The middle pose by double take is also in a gacha in Shoetopia. You can start the shopping here

The story bit of easily amused entertainment continues the tale of why the airship blew up and how it is waited for in vain. The reason for gratuitous nudity is because apparently it’s obligatory to blog shoes naked now, yesyes. And I was trying to make Ely drunk.

Day and Night

Blessed Sun, Bringer of Warmth, Governess of Growth, Ruler of Day. Give us energy to exist, to change, to move, to live. Bring fire to our endeavors, warmth to our homes, bravery to our steps forward. Allow your heat to kindle ours, your rays to light our world, your radiance to enlighten our thoughts.

sistersun1csBlessed Moon, Bringer of Peace, Caller of Dreams, Ruler of Night. Give us serenity to balance our daily struggles, visions to guide our paths, silence to soothe our souls. Allow us to see ourselves in your reflection, to glimpse our true-selves through you for just like your Sister is too bright to gaze upon, we can perceive ourselves only in our dream-selves.

sistermoon2csThat is our nature, divided between two heavenly bodies. Some favor one sister above the other, but we all need them both. Every day, every night, or we are lost.

The Shining Sun gowns by The Muses can be purchased in the current round of We Love Roleplay.

What If?

It is the night for dark secrets, mysteries and myths. It is time for imagination to dwell in all the frightful spots at the back of your head, indulge in the startles, channel your mundane concerns into the fear of unknown and improbable, with that faint little voice within asking ‘what if?’ 

bloodhostess2csIt is time for delicious treats, delicious thoughts. Make your fears tangible, taste them on the tip of your tongue, reach for more, find ways to combat them by becoming one yourself.

bloodhostess3csTake comfort in the knowledge that soon the visitation will be over and everything will be back to safe normalcy: all the monsters will be back under your bed or in your closet, haunting you only in the moments of your weakness.

bloodhostess1csBut for now, tonight: dance with demons, inhale the fear, let the quiet what-if whisper grow into a roar: What if it is all true? Why couldn’t it be? After all, This Is Halloween.

The skirt by SAKIDE is a part of a special Obscure Dress in her Halloween House, the horns by Cerridwen’s Cauldron can be won in a gacha, the eyes by Pin Me Down are available in Flux, and the posture collar and necklace by [The Forge] are from Horrorfest. The bloodstained hair colour dye HUD by Alice Project is a part of her Halloween Massacre Specials: if you haven’t yet visited, go grab a free bloodstained hairdo, today is the last day!
