+Aii {egosumaii} ~ There will be DRAGONS!


If you enjoy unusual accessories as much as I do, you really need to visit this month's Arcade Gacha event! +Aii {egosumaii} has some dragons that are to die for! 
These lovely bento dragons come as COMMON singles or as the RARE Brothers. There is also a color change RARE single. All are animated. There are also lanterns for the dragons to hold or for you to use without the dragon.  The Brothers tend to quibble with each other, snapping and posturing as they float around your body. The singles are a little calmer, occasionally snapping, but for the most part, rubbing against your hand or face like a large cat.

I'm wearing my favorite frock coat from Dark Passions clothing and my Moroccan Chic nails from DP Koffin Nails.

Siren


They say he found her in the water. The thin, naked girl caught in the weeds below the lighthouse. He pulled her out, pressed his mouth against hers and blew the wind into her still body. She opened her eyes and they were the cold red eyes of a fish. If it gave him pause, he never said so. He took her inside, warmed her, fed her and brought her back to life.


She was lovely in her own way, though her eyes were strange and if you looked closely, there was a thin webbing between her fingers. When he dressed her in human clothes, you could scarcely tell that she was other... except for the webbed fingers... and fish that seemed to swim in and out of her floating hair... and her strange mottled skin.


She never spoke. The villagers say that on the nights of the dark moon they heard her singing in a high, eerie voice, but that seems unlikely. Her face held a slight smile as though laughing at a secret that only she knew. She loved the lighthouse keeper. You could tell by the way she looked at him.


On stormy nights, she would stand on the rocks below the lighthouse and look longingly at the water. She didn't walk in though. Her feet stayed on the land until the night the lighthouse keeper died. She disappeared that night. They found her dress in the weeds below the lighthouse, but they never found a body.

Thanks to Princess Aii for the inspiration!

Lovecraft Festival 2017 August 17-27

There are a lot of SL events that are kind of predictable. You go to Hair Fair, or Skin Fair, you know what to expect. I go to Lovefest every year and never see it coming! This year's event offers shopping galore, dancing, shows, a gacha pier and an awesome underwater quest.


Lovefest honors all things Lovecraftian. I've loved the stories of HP Lovecraft for half a century and still think they blow all other horror tales right out of the water. Tuesday afternoons @ 5pm slt frequently find me sitting in the Innsmouth Lovecraft Visitor's Center listening to someone reading a Lovecraft story. It's my me time.


Modern horror writers borrow from him all the time and the good ones acknowledge the inspiration he provided. One of the reasons that movies made from his stories tend to fall flat is that nobody has ever managed to convey the feeling of dread inspired by the original stories. It's an internal process and impossible to replicate or represent on film.


Yes, he overused certain words,  but he was creating an atmosphere and he managed to get inside our heads no matter how many times we may groan when we read about that spectral gibbous moon. Thank you, Arik Metzger and all the other crazies in Innsmouth for yet another accursed amorphous affair!

(That's me on the left with my best friend on the right and Arik in the center)

Descent Into Madness

"I shall grant your wishes", the lamp declared. "Anything your heart desires."

Exploring the possibilities thanks to some amazing SL designers. I used the wonderful Amaria skin from Avada in all pictures (Available @ Designer Showcase in 10 shades with and without brows and cleavage). Bottom picture adds the Hopeless Eyes and Makeup from +Aii {egosumaii}.

Mad Teaparty @ the Gothic Garage Sale

Afternoon tea @ the Gothic Garage Sale. We all know that Gothic clothing can be rich, dark and lovely, but it can also be a lot of fun! I love this dress from SenzaFine. The textures are wonderful and the kicky little ruffle around the bottom puts it in a class above similarly styled dresses. You only have a few more days to hit the sale. The garage doors slam shut August 8.
Sale prices are 50%-75% off, so you can afford to buy to your heart's content.

I paired the dress with several of the hunt gifts available throughout the event. Look everywhere! You're likely to overlook the cute little wooden black cats unless you notice their glowing green eyes peeking from the shadows. Pet the kitty and pay it L$5 to thank it for guarding your gift.

Here, Kitty, Kitty, Kitty!

There's a hunt @ the Gothic Garage Sale.
For only L$5 each, you can take home some wonderful gifts. At last count there were 21 black cats hidden around the sales area, but you know how cats are... there may be more by the time you read this! No spoilers, but if you can figure out where these pictures were taken on the GGS sim, you'll know where three of the cats are.

I'm wearing the Rebellion outfit from Trashed with a black cat on the sweater. I have moonlit cats on my DP Koffin Nails (sympathetic magik, you know!) To aid me in my search, I'm wearing the wonderful Umbral Moon Hair from +Aii which includes moon accessories and Stardust Hair sparkles. The hair will be available soon @ Prism Magica

Gothic Garage Sale July 28 ~ August 8

Yes, you read that correctly. I know you thought that Goths keep their secrets locked away in cobwebby attics or drippy basements, but the truth is, they keep the good stuff in a storage unit. And occasionally they have a garage sale in those dark and mysterious storage units.

DO NOT MISS THIS! Wonderful products from all your favorite Gothic designers @ 50% or more off + some freebees + a L$5 Hunt! This isn't the old stuff either, these are current favorites and even new items. It's the perfect time to update your Gothic goods and prepare for the upcoming holiday (Hallowe'en, of course!)
