Horrorfest 2013: Spooky Fashions That Work All Year Round..

Image

Halloween may be over, but  Horrorfest 2013 is still going strong and raising lots of lovely cash for The Epilepsy Therapy Project.  The event doesn’t finish until November 8th, and I urge you to go if you haven’t visited yet.

Of course, now that the Samhain season has passed, you may be feeling that the time for buying the spooky wares on display has ended, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth.  Many of the items have lasting appeal and can be adapted to suit different looks and outfits. Here is a couple of examples to get you going. In the picture above I’m sporting the FRI.DAY ‘Raven’ hood while I enjoy an Autumnal jaunt in the woods. I’ve slipped it over the COQUET ‘Miranda’ frock that I picked up at this round of FAMESHED, but you can add it to a variety of outfits and it remains really effective. Of course, you can wear it as part of a role-play set-up too; add a quiver of arrows, and you’re well on your way to evoking the spirit of a famous woodland outlaw.

Here’s another example; I added my DRD ‘Skeletonhands’ necklace to a jumper by ERRATIC and some leggings from NYLON OUTFITTERS to conjure up a spooky everyday look that works whatever the season.

Snapshot_004What I’m trying to get across here is that even though the theme may be Horror, it doesn’t have to be restricted to October and the darker months of the year; in Second Life anything goes after all!

HORRORFEST 2013 – Drag Me To Hell!

Image

 

Well, if not quite hell, then surely to the land of lost socks, dust bunnies and discarded sweetie wrappers!

I had a lot of fun with the PHOTO TONIC ‘Fright Night’ set that enabled me to pose this picture.   Photo Tonic have contributed a number of themed pose-sets to the Horrorfest event, including the Vampiric ‘Blood Lust’ set, as well as a  pose-prop set called ‘Monsters Under The Bed’, which includes an actual bed.  It’s really effective, but I opted to use this pose, ‘Haunted 3’ (from the ‘Fright Night’ set, as preciously mentioned) and my own bed for this shot.  

(Kittytip: For added scares in your pictures, get the free ‘Anypose Expression Hud’ from the marketplace and use it to increase the chill-factor in your shots!)

HORRORFEST 2013 – Something Witchy This Way Comes!

Snapshot_016

 

During my time in Second Life I’ve managed to collect some lovely Pagan and Wiccan items, and I often like to have an altar display in my home.

Alas so far I haven’t seen any made from mesh, but I do have a favourite, the PD Altar Table (Peculiar Designs By Poppy Teskat), Unfortunately for me, my Altar Table has gone walkabout from my inventory, but I do have a smaller alternative, an Altar Crate, that is just as nifty. It’s a little prim heavy, but really lovely and  I’ve situated it in my Summer House on my land so that I have a ritual space, and yes, it does get used.  It’s a real joy to host  and participate in rituals in Second Life, and places like Sacred Cauldron and Gaia Rising I’m sure will be hosting Samhain celebrations over the coming days.

But the aim of this post is to share a few of my Horrorfest goodies with you. This picture features a number of items  including a fantastic manicure  (a black nail with red, bloodied tips)  and pose from ELEPHANTE POSES.  The pose in particular is very impressive, it’s from a pack called ‘Witchcraft’ and it works perfectly in situ around the altar or cauldron.  The star of this show however is my frock.  It’s called ‘Arachne’ and is from the SENZAFINE  label.  and the Sepia colour-way that I am wearing is the 100% charity donation item, with monies of course going to The Epilepsy Therapy Project.    It’s a scrumptious frock; a beautiful shape with web pattern and faded colour towards the hem. The sleeves are generously cut and fluted, and there’s a range or colours to select from if Sepia isn’t your bag (I’m an Earth-sign, so I like to wear earthy colours in my Witchy workings).  I’m not one for role-play particularly, but I do like to wear something long and flowing when attending a moot in-world, and it strikes me that this dress is the perfect choice.  I don’t know about you, but I am totally impressed by the variety and quality of items featured at Horrorfest this year, it really is proving to be a highlight of a very busy year for events and sales in-world.

HORRORFEST 2013 – I Wanna Be Adorned..

Adornmint furniture

 

More HORRORFEST 2013 awesome for you to get giddy about!

This time I’m featuring ADORN.MINT’s rather delectable furniture that is available at the fair.  The picture above features the ‘Dead Man’s Bookshelf’ and ‘The Nightshade Bench’.

Both work really well and would be especially welcomed by those with a fondness for all things Edgar Allen Poe.  The pumpkins are a nice touch, and I found that the bench worked well both indoors and out.  In fact, I’m inclined to say that if you’re of a Gothic persuasion you could easily leave this set in situ all year long (without pumpkins, of course).

Adornmint Details

 

I love the fact that there’s a skull and some bottles with dubious contents on the shelves, and as for the bench, I really rate the fabric combination that’s been selected for the cushions.  There’s also an Adorn.Mint Gacha at the Fair, where you can win a rather nifty wee side table.  I like the thought that has gone into these tables, with some interesting tile designs selected for the table surface.  It’s well worth a punt folks.
