SOTW: As Samhain passes..

.. it’s time for SEASON OF THE WITCH to come to a close. It’s been a phenomenal event and  I’ve enjoyed everything about it, from the Witchy aesthetic at the HQ and the sim itself,  to the wares that could be purchased.  I’m really pleased that the team behind this event have elected to do another one next year, ‘The April Witch’,  because I think it’s really bridged a gap enabling us Pagan-inclined folk to purchase quality Witchy wares for our abodes and ourselves.

If you’ve missed anything be sure to save the link to the Seraphim review page, that way you can locate the names of the designers and visit their in-world stores once the show has closed.

Here’s a final look using items from the event, and I’m sure you’ll spot many others on this page in the weeks and months to come!

HORRORFEST 2013 – If you go down to the woods today..

Snapshot_010

You may well encounter a rather beautiful surprise. I’m calling this my ‘Fantasy Fairy Witch-Queen ‘ ensemble, and this  post is in complete contrast to the last one, because rather than me walking around freaking everyone out with decapitations galore, I’m instead gliding around and  looking very Witchy-glam.  

HORRORFEST  2013 is actually bursting at the seams with fantastic fashion that isn’t just limited to  wearing during the Spooky Season.  I compiled this look to share with you a few amazing pieces that are available at the event, and I’ll be featuring more Horrorfest-inspired ensembles during the duration of the show, but for now let’s kick off with an absolute belter shall we?

SAKIDE is one of those brands in world that rarely puts a foot wrong, and I have many items from the store in my inventory.  I was delighted to see that they were taking part in this event, and even more so when I discovered what they were contributing.  They’ve allocated a lovely collection of wearables, the highlight for me being this astonishingly beautiful tube dress. This is the ‘Wilds Dress’ in red. The dress is incredibly on-trend, in a style that a lot of celebrities are opting for at premieres, and I’m not surprised because it is so beautiful. It’s deceptively simple; with the dress featuring a double-layered skirt that’s short underneath, but overlaid with a gauze that reaches down to the floor.  There’s a black pattern embossed onto it as well as  a thin belt defining the waist. It’s absolutely breathtaking.  Effortless really, yet works so well. I’ve teamed it with some SAKIDE leather arm-warmers which aren’t featured at the event but I found them lurking in my inventory, and whaddya know? They look spot on with the frock.

The dress isn’t the only star of this show;  feast your eyes upon this astonishing headpiece by PAPER MOON.  This is the ‘Sisters of the Moon-Sister Crow’ head-dress, and is part of a range available at Horrorfest, with other versions called ‘Sister Deer’, ‘Sister Rat’ and the charity donation item, ‘Sister Autumn’. All of them are equally amazing, but this one really spoke to me. I’ve never really been a head-gear wearer in world, but I know that plenty are, but that changed when I took one look at the quality of these. Oh my word, they are beautiful. This one features a crow skull centrepiece, framed by a pair of goats horns.  Flowers also adorn the ensemble, which is completed with a teardrop jewel hanging from the beak of the skull. A final flourish is the pearl beading, which drapes delicately upon the forehead. I didn’t need to make any fitting alterations to this at all;  it worked straight out of the box and when teamed with this LAVIERE hair that I scooped out of my inventory it just looked perfect, don’t you think?

A final item to wrap up the whole look is the collar from SOUZOU EIEN, a brand that I had never encountered before Horrorfest.   Again, like head-dresses, I’ve never really been a collar fan.  This all changed back in August when I was sent the ‘Sansa Neck Corset’ from LARK, and I’ve never looked back. ( You can read that post HERE)  Neck collars and corsets really finish an outfit in a far more substantial way than a necklace or simple tie-scarf, and not only that, they can create a drama all of their very own, as is clearly demonstrated by this ‘Elegant Throat Corset’.  Again. like the dresses and head-pieces there are a number of varieties for you to investigate at the fair, featuring lace or velveteen fabrics, but each one of them is equally worthy of your Lindens, and as you can see really does add a very classy finishing touch to an outfit.   It completes the whole ensemble that I am wearing absolutely perfectly, and  I think I look ruddy gorgeous, even if I do say so myself.  I bet you’d look just as lovely in this too!
