Witchy Weekends: ‘Morgana’ by Baiastice

Altar_003
SECOND LIFE is going absolutely mad bonkers  for Halloween this year, it really is.  Not that that is a bad thing, no siree! It’s fantastic and each year there are even more ghoulish treats and vampiric tricks to discover across the grid. It really is a favourite time of year for me, for obvious Witchy reasons. Halloween, or Samhain, is a very important Pagan festival and I love that SECOND LIFE is a place that celebrates it in such a vivid way.
Many group gifts are distributed at this time of year too so be sure to check out your group notices to make sure you haven’t missed out on anything! For a start, you definitely DON’T want to miss out on this lovely lingerie set from BAIASTICE.  It’s called ‘Morgana’, but is beautiful to wear at any time of the year, and is a delicate lacy ensemble comprising pants and top and also an absolutely MASSIVE witch hat too (not shown).
In fact, there’s another group gift in this picture; if you’re a member of ‘Lofty Spaces’, which is the group for fans of THE LOFT, be sure to check notices and get yourself this set of funky white pumpkin candles that spell out the word ‘Boo!’ (They’re behind my ‘Pumpkin Mice’ from PILOT, not a group gift but definitely worth getting!) As you can see I’m starting to decorate my home for Halloween, but I’m not going too crazy, yet…
The divine skin I’m sporting in this snap is yet another Shantia Soulstar special! This ZOUL CREATIONS skin is called ‘Becca’ and she’s a beauty, as you can see.
The brows are a treat on this one, with a really lovely shape and tone and of course all the eye-make ups and lip colours are simply divine. She’s currently available for purchase at THE MAKEOVER ROOM event, which is a discount event where prices are 300L per 2 skintone packages, with it costing just 50L for a make-up package eyeshadow/lipsticks,  after which she’ll appear in the main store.  Keep an eye on this blog for more looks featuring beautiful Becca over the next few posts.
The hairstyle I’m sporting is a prize from this year’s round of TAG! GACHA.  This is the prize from CLAWTOOTH; I dropped lucky and landed ‘The Good Witch’ pack in ‘Dark Ombre’ and I it’s a lovely long style that sits beautifully over the shoulders. A cracking Gacha prize and as you can imagine I was very chuffed when I got it!  Lastly, this is pose #6 from an old ELEPHANTE POSES set called, you guessed it ‘Witchcraft’ which I hope is still available!

‘Bardot’ & ‘Babette’ by Clawtooth


These beautiful hairstyles by Clawtooth are a must-have, seriously. I want my hair like this in real life; volume at the crown and draped over my shoulders wearing my best come hither glance.. anyway, each style is a bloody steal at L$188 for a five colour pack. ‘Bardot’ is more formal, ‘Babette’ features gentle fly-aways across the face. Stunning.

Stay Gold…

Yes, I know what you’re thinking….you’re thinking “Kitty, where the chuff have you been?”

I’ll explain all that later, but right now I’m squealing with excitement over a number of things so let me tell you about these first before I spontaneously combust with excitement, OK?

Right ho-number one. ARMIDI IS HAVING A SALE!!!

Get up off the floor, dust yourself down and read that again, YES, ARMIDI ARE HAVING A SALE!! Apparently it’s deluged with punters, obviously, so here’s the good bit: YOU CAN SHOP ARMIDI ONLINE! Yes, did you not know? /me slaps you around the chops.
Quit getting hysterical; for the moment  you can buy all Armidi’s stock online and here’s the best part ever…

IT’S ALL REDUCED!

The website is: http://www.shoparmidi.com

I logged in to find a lovely Linden balance that I had forgotten all about from back in the day (epic win!) which meant shopping happy for Kitty! I’ve bought some dresses (to replace ones that I lost in my huge inventory loss, remember that?) and some flat pumps and some separates and I basically laughed in a maniacal style as I purchased from the comfort of my desktop knowing that there’s going to punch-ups and all sorts of drama going down at the Armidi store…sometimes being smug rules:)
*There are rumours flying around that this is actually a closing down sale-I’ve seen no evidence on the website to suggest that but hey, what do I know? ( Well, I DO know that you’d be a fool to miss out on splendid items like this, the Armidi Gisaci Square Cut Linen Mini (Gold) and the equally dazzling Armidi Gisaci Sasche Flats ( also in Gold)

Once I’d finished being all clever, I hopped over to Ticky Tacky to find some nice dangly things to accesorise my look. I don’t think I praise this store enough so right now I’m going to start. It’s a fabulous, quirky and overwhelmingly original jewellery store that you MUST visit. (Kittyfact: Each time I hear the name I remember hearing in-world a very odd song sung by a seemingly elderly woman describing a ‘ticky-tacky’. If you’ve ever heard it you’ll know what I mean, but whenever I visit that song appears in my head and consequently drives me right round the chuffing twist. Incidentally I don’t believe I was at Ticky Tacky when I heard it…) Anyway, they have some utterly wondrous items in their rather gorgeous main store which is at Gaylord @ Starlust.
When you visit, because you would be silly not to, be sure to take your time and go around the entire store because there are some extremely beautiful jewellery sets out for sale as well as some bargain essentials such as a gold and silver hoop earring set for a Linden. (An inventory essential if ever there was one!) They also do a cracking line in bangles: as I’ve said before I MUST have bangles/jewellery to hide the manky wrist bones that we’re all blessed with in SL because they drive me mad, and Ticky Tacky have an awesome selection.

Incidentally the necklace that I’m wearing is a special today as part of the ‘Saturday Night Fever’ sales event. It’s called ‘Undercover Lover’ and costs a measly L$40 for the next 24 hours (Actually you have much less time than that I am afraid seeing as I’m only just blogging it!)
It’s available in three awesome metal shades: Gold, Silver and Iron.

Ticky Tacky is also currently participating in the ‘Car Wash Cart Sale’. This bi-annual event takes it’s name from the Car Wash sim, and if you pop along you’ll find a vast array of items on offer for L$10 apiece. Quality does vary, but I picked up a few items while I was there, although in my opinion the Ticky Tacky and the Aqua stalls are probably the best of the lot.

Finally, I must mention the style that I am seriously rocking in these images. This hair is to absolutely bloody well die for…

It’s from CLAWTOOTH and the style is called ‘Louise Brooks’ and the shade is Softest Black. If you don’t know who Louise was, she was a silent era star and a style icon, plus OMD wrote a song about her too called ‘Pandora’s Box’ (Click to watch the video which features her, I’ve *always* been a fan. The picture above features Louise, wasn’t she a beauty?)

Anyway, the style was part of the Fifty Linden Friday offering this week, but even if it wasn’t I’d have snapped it up because it is a perfect bob. I LOVE the shape at the back: great care has been taken to create the effect of the bob shape and the clipped back and it works beautifully. I love hair that on first glance seems so simple, yet obviously took a lot of work to make it so..it’s a proper ‘bobby dazzler’

I’ll get my coat…
