So in the end, what was my costume of choice?

akeleton_002This one! No need to worry about my hair or skin or make-up or ANYTHING really, other than the awesomeness of this APHORISM skeleton! It’s part of the Skeleton Collection available at WAYWARD HALLOWEEN. It’s a gacha prize, from a machine featuring two rare avatars (male and female) 6 Skulls – Devil, Vampire, Los Muertos Cross, Los Muertos Flower, Male & Female and some skeleton props too. akeleton_004

It looks super-realistic and I’ve been wearing it at various parties across the grid and got so many compliments, so if you’re after a quick costume and have left it to the last minute, pop over to WAYWARD HALLOWEEN and play the Gacha! (Oh, and if you have a chicken dance in your inventory, hidden away somewhere as most of us do, use it when you’re wearing this avatar. Got one of the laughs of the night!) Here I am at DANCE ISLAND, dancing next to DeadMau5, as you do..(Party still going strong guys, come and join us!)

HAPPY HALLOWEEN READERS!

A Gentle Halloween..

broomstick_002

Can there be such a thing? Well, for this post I wanted to create a softer, gentler look for Halloween.  Not everyone wants their costumes to be super-loud and in your face with props and sound effects and all sorts of nasty.  Some people like a subtler approach, and I found that incredibly easy to do courtesy of a few fabulous bits and bobs that I discovered at THE MESH BODY ADDICTS FAIR.

First of all I’m wearing a skin by a brand that I’ve never worn before, ‘Jennifer’ by LURE.  It’s not a bad skin at all actually: the body looks pretty good and the skin tone looks nice and constant across my MAITREYA body. The face is pretty too, although the brows weren’t to my preference at all.  Fortunately a NB option meant I could add some ZOUL CREATIONS eyebrows to make for a very lovely face indeed.  I’m not wearing any cosmetics other than the brow add-on and I think you’ll agree with me that as faces go she’s lovely.  With that in mind I think she’s a great choice for a basic everyday wear skin.

So an understated outfit for an understated skin is required, and some of the separates on sale at THE MESH BODY ADDICTS FAIR more than meet my requirements.  You can’t go wrong with simple yet quality pieces in SECOND LIFE, but the texturing has to be spot on. These ‘Seleste’ tops by VISION are super simple to wear yet very effective because their colours are nice and bright and the surface looks perfect.  An absolute wardrobe staple and incredibly cheap at the price too; a fatpack costs L$799 and contains 15 tops in a shade for every occasion. I wouldn’t normally do this but I would say if you have the Linden you might want to consider splashing out on the fatpack because you will get so much wear out of these tops! (A three-pack of tops costs L$199 btw, still great value but that fatpack is where it’s at!)

My top was easy enough to sort out, but what about the bottom? Trousers? Nah, I fancied a nice skirt and instead of raiding my virtual closet for a denim number, as is my usual choice, I decided to go for something super girly. This ABSOLUT VENDETTA Skater Skirt is just the ticket and totally works with the VISION top, it’s like they were made for each other! What witchcraft is this?!   In fact, I am not one at all for dotty prints but I absolutely adore the texture on this skirt; it’s charming and the colour perfectly complements my hair and hat, which are incidentally gifts available  from WASABI PILLS (hair) and LYRICAL & BABYSTEPS at TRUNK OR TREAT 2015.

To finish is my only purchase from FIFTY LINDEN FRIDAYS this week, and whenever LIVALLE is featured I’m there quick as a flash.  I absolutely adore LIVALLE footwear, it’s so beautifully made and packaged and to get two pairs of suitably spooky heels (one orange and one black) for just Fifty Lindens is a real treat indeed.

So there you have it; a nice gentle Halloween look for the more introverted amongst us.  What do you think?

I have NO IDEA what to wear for Halloween…

Halloween_001

There’s *STILL* so much to do before Halloween, can you believe it’s finally here?! I’m frantically trying to decide on my outfit but failing miserably; there’s just too much choice this year! So, while I try to perfect my look I’m chilling out in my skybox home, experimenting with various make-ups and hairstyles.   One thing I absolutely adore about my virtual home is my LARK dresser that is covered in TRES BLAH items from various rounds of THE ARCADE.  Of course, there are cats everywhere (how many can you spot in this snap?) along with jewellery and styling products galore.  It’s a very Kitty-bedroom!Rummaging around in my many boxes helped me to rediscover a favourite from last year; my Mona Halloween Lingerie from BLACKLACE.  Via the nifty miracle that are OMEGA APPLIERS I got to be able to wear this set on my MAITREYA body. Swit swoo huh?  Add my go-to NCORE boots in their Halloween edition and I could pretty much out go as is; except I can’t decide which BLACKLACE undies to sport seeing as they’ve dropped another group gift upon us which is just as snazzy..Halloween_003

..see what I mean? This is the ‘Maddy’ Halloween gift , and I’m wearing it in purple (orange is included as well, yay!)  I’m also sporting the second hairstyle available at the latest round of UBER from LITTLE BONES while I do the dance of ‘I’ve got nothing to wear’ around my bedroom as the cats stare at me in a bemused manner.

I still haven’t decided on my outfit for Halloween.
