Wayward


I'm not entirely sure why it is, but lately I am drawn to different hues of blue. With AZUL having so many beautiful limited creations (for a steal of a deal) out for their store renewal, I've been drawn to whatever speaks out to me, and Qulsome in sapphire did just that. Qulsome is a rigged mesh dress with 5 standard sizes, a rigged mesh hood with 3 sizes, a belt, and flexi skirt pieces. Finding hair to go underneath this hood that both fit and I liked was a hard one, but having expertise in modification, I decided to use a couple of different pieces to create my own hairstyle. Beyond that, I kept my styling simple. I went with dark eyeshadow and dark blue lips from Zibska, sapphire nails, and this absolutely beautiful ring from Charm. Nia was pushed with her modelling skills to create this stunning, intricately detailed ring that comes with 1 metal and 8 gem colors. Plus it modify, so you can achieve the perfect fit! How often do you find beautiful, high quality jewelry that is modify? There's a reason I'm in love with both Zibska and Charm. Once I was satisfied with my darker style, I headed over to Pandemonium with yet another custom pose.

Natural Born Sinner

So for this month I was kinda a bad girl and took more of a break then I intended to but sometimes you just have to take a step back and regroup before your head explodes. Besides, I know for a fact I get in way over my head pumping out look after look in October thanks to all the Halloween themed events and such. So without further delay I shall give you one last come hither look for the month...

Quintessence


Teal is usually Dragon's territory, but I couldn't resist but to delve in when I laid my eyes upon this limited edition recolor of AZUL's Maeve gown. Corset? Barbed wire? Headdress? Beautiful long flowing skirt? Oh my gods I'm in love! I absolutely had to put my own dark spin on this outfit, but not too dark however. I decided to go with a blonde goth look with long hair and  heavy, dark makeup (all from Zibska) that isn't too far different to what one will see me wearing in the real world. Little Bones had the perfect long hair that had these soft, beautiful waves loose curls. Aii, The Ugly and The Beautiful had released a gothic accessories gacha a while back and I happened to have the silver gothic collar rare, which fit too perfectly with the hanging chains. For shoes I went with a high platform heel from Zibska, as to pay patronage to the very iconic platform shoes and boots you see in the scene. For the shoot I again made my own pose, then headed over to one of my favorite places in Secondlife. It's needless to say I am completely and utterly in love with this look!

Saudade


Saudade: The feeling of longing for someone that you love and is lost.

I can honestly say that this post was one that pushed me out of my comfort zone. I was spending time styling with my dear friend Madeleine, when I asked her to help me choose a gown to blog. She said, "Kay, this one would look incredible on you!" as she pointed to Azul's limited edition recolor of their Esmerelda mesh gown in peridot. Esmerelda comes with a mesh gown in 5 standard sizes, a system layer top, collar, sleeves, and flex-skirts. Green is definitely my favorite color, so I was excited, but instead of going with my usual dark touch... Maddy pushed me to style soft and feminine. I avoided my typical dark makeup, went with lighter colors, and utilized this shawl from Zibska. With a little tinting, I was able to get the PERFECT match that brought out the different tones in the gown. With some dark lace gloves I was able to pull out a little more of the darker tones, but not too much, while my ring (and it is special to me) pulled out the greens and highlights, even though it was very small. As for posing, I had to create my own pose, since I found some that were close, but not quite cutting it. I went with something very longing, as the mood I was in while crafting this post was missing someone special to me.

Cobalt Conjurer


I've been putting much more of my thoughts and emotions into my work lately. This one stemmed from a rather cold feeling, but resulted in something I'm rather pleased with. It's very two-toned, just like the lipstick that Zibska has released for this month's round of Uber! Her Blacktops Lips come with 14 colors, as well as appliers for LeLutka and TMP. Zib has four different lipsticks out and they're all amazing and completely perfect for photos, in my opinion. For this look I decided to use a gown from Topazia I've had for a while, since it has an intense drop-v neckline that went well with the cubic jewelry from Zibska I was wearing. I felt as though the shape of this neck makeup from Nuuna complimented the dress and brought attention to the lipstick. I have to say though, I really do love the intensity of this eyeshadow from Dead Apples and how the shape can be modified by adjusting your eyebrow shape. Finishing out the look I opted for blue hair rather than black, haunting eyes also from Dead Apples, one of my favorite shoulder pieces and hand tattoo, both being from Zibska.

Dark Premonition


"She's going to lure you into her grasp, rip you to shreds, and make you love it."

The Nightmare Event is right around the corner (Otc. 1st)! That being said, Aii is releasing some pretty amazing things that I decided to channel just a hint of Queen of the Damned with. With how perfectly her tattered wrappings go with her thorny succubus outfit, I couldn't resist but to pair them together just moments after I had gotten my claws on them. Her tattered wrappings are rigged mesh with an unrigged blindfold, coming with 7 colors included (though the thorny succubus garment only has 3 color options). Another one of the items she is releasing for the Nightmare Event is this Dream Weaver's Eye, which rests on the chest and is slightly disturbing in my opinion (probably why I love it so much). The Dream Weaver's Eye comes with an unrigged, animated mesh eye that has 14 color options, two chest tattoo options, and appliers for TMP, Maitreya, and Belleza. This style really came together quickly, but something felt a little off about what I had. Talking to my dear friend Madeleine, she pointed out that I should opt for a reddish lipstick instead of noir, go with a different color for the chest eye, and needed something to break up the bare skin. After putting our heads together, it was concluded that a tattoo was needed and with her absolutely amazing skills in styling she helped me find the perfect one-- a vicious looking Eastern dragon! It fit so perfectly in placement, shape of the body to match my hair and the wrappings, and horns to compliment mine.

Amicable Ascendance


With Azul's Mainstore Renewal, the amazing Mami Jewell has released 62 (yes, 62!) limited edition recolors of her designs and they are GORGEOUS. While they do not have appliers for the legacy clothing layers, they're still incredibly beautiful and high quality designs. The texture work at AZUL is hand painted artistry! I chose to play with the limited edition recolor of their Alicia dress in pearl. It's a gorgeous white dress with accents of pink and violet in the flexi-skirt. I decided to keep my styling simple, as not to detract from the beauty of the gown. I went with a blindfold (and doves) from Zibska for the symbolism of peace, a lovely ribbon necklace from Junbug, and a drop pendant from Maxi Gossamer that had the perfect shade of pink to pull the color upwards from the skirt. For makeup, I kept it simple since part of my face was covered. I used my favorite lipgloss from Zibska and some subtle tears from Soedara to add a sense of delicate emotion. As for posing, once again I created my own pose to compliment the look and allow me to float among the clouds.

Return To Pripyat


Well, I totally have not been playing a ton of DayZ or anything... Okay, maybe I have. I've had this set from Dead Dollz for a cool minute and it wasn't until recently that it finally spoke to me and said to do something different. I've seen a lot of futuristic styles, more haute styles, but I wanted to go with something leaning a little bit more on the RP side. I went with platform shoes as to keep to the style of the outfit, a bra underneath the scarf, and added in this mesh gasmask from Zibska (30 colors, via HUD). I really enjoy it because of her texture work as well as the spikes around the one eye! Something felt a bit off with all the grey and black however, so I opted to get a little creative with a couple different pieces from Charm (formerly Keystone). The creator behind Charm makes incredibly high quality mesh and perhaps some of the best chains I've see out there to this day, not to mention her products are modify, so you can get the perfect fit! From there I created my pose and set out for a post apocalyptic theme park, but I realized something important-- I was unarmed and completely vulnerable to zombies. Some people go with pistols, some people like shotguns. Me? Yeah, I went with dual SMGs with inferno ammunition.

Balance


"No matter how dark it may seem, no matter what is blinding you, there is always a light.
Sometimes it's just shining behind you. Find the balance within yourself."

Zibska strikes again with yet another amazing ensemble that is wearable art. I can never really explain what it is that inspires me or just exactly how, but her work always inspires me by bringing out emotions and thoughts that somehow correlate to the outfit in my eyes. Imke is currently out at The Inspiration and includes a rigged mesh corset and shorts in standard sizing, a head piece, a pair of shoulder pieces (which I made a copy of and also put on my hands), a skirt, and a pair of heels fit for Belleza, Slink and TMP. I went minimal with my styling as not to detract from the ensemble, adding a neck/chest makeup and some long gloves. I'm going to tell you right now, locating that mask was a seriously difficult task, but after calling out for help I was able to finally find it. Initially I was going to go with a very simple studio shot with the pose I made, but halfway through I found myself distracted and building this set. I'm completely thrilled with how this one came out!

Vipera Danse


Sometimes when I wandering events I see something from a designer, that I don't shop with as much as I really should, that instantly inspires me! Though I think it's been out for longer, Emo-tions had this sexy number out at The 24. Genesis includes both a silver and a violet version, which I thought was absolutely beautiful. All of the pieces except the head piece are unrigged, modifiable mesh. It included a top, skirt, necklace, a pair of armbands, a pair of forearm bracelets, and two headpieces (one for the Genesis hair, and one for a hairbase). Personally, I opted to use the Genesis hair also from Emo-tions, because I really loved how the hair shape was. For makeup I initially was toying with a purple eyeshadow, red lips, and my regular blue eyes, but something in me told me to do something different. So I switched to dark eyeshadow, purple metallic lips, and eyes with just the right amount of blood red. I loved it! I tried my hardest to find some belly dance style poses, and I came close, but I really couldn't find the pose to match what I was envisioning that did not prim break! I finally gave in and made my own, resulting in a piece I'm completely happy with.

Coma Black


"We were too dumb to run, too dead to die."

Every time I turn around, Zibska make something new that I completely love. This time, Zib created these monotone Aphra eyes (24 patterns via HUD) that instantly made me say, "I think it's about time I do another Marilyn Manson style post." So while listening to his older music, a flurry of flying clothes, and some time later I emerged with a look that draws inspirations from his 90's era. Black leather, fishnet, long gloves (my favorite long leather gloves), and a drawn silver grill were my choices and I think they went together quite well. The mesh corset top form Zibska, Belinde, comes with 20 colors and the booted leggings also from Zibska come with 30 colors, both controllable via HUD.  For the makeup, I used one of Zibska's newest lipsticks plus some of her older eyeshadow, and my favorite black eyeliner from cStar. As for posing, there is literally no good Mason-esque poses for females, so I made my own. An expression HUD and a little photo manipulation later, I had the perfect unsettling grin that pays patronage to the shock rocker himself.

Lies Can Be Beautiful


Would you rather a beautiful, comforting lie over the harsh, ugly truth?

Zibska released this mesh floral jewelry set by the name Scaramouche that made my heart jump with joy. This particular style is one that is near and dear to my heart, so I was excited to play with it. Most everyone I noticed was going with the dark colors, which they have all done stunning work, but I felt as though the lighter palette in the color change HUD (Which has 20 colors, 10 light and 10 dark) was being ignored. So I decided to focus up more on it and incorporate a bit of my darker style into it still. What I ended up with was a symbolic styling, representing that lies can be beautiful (the flowers and lipgloss), but everything you say leaves a mark (the smeared makeup), your true intention can be seen in your eyes, and lies creep and spread (the lashes).

You're So Vain

Because you cant just strike up LUST with out playing with at least one of the other sin when the Festival of Sin II event is going on, I had to try my hand at a little bit of Vanity too. I instantly fell in love with this dress and had to have it. Finding a pose was a bit harder, but luckily I stumbled upon an lar poses over in Envy. While I didn't find a pose I liked at the event and that worked with the mesh dress (I did find a bunch I liked just none of them played to the dress) I did stop by the main store and found even more poses I loved and one that fit what I was going for. Either way time to let the picture talk because I have a busy weekend planned and I still need to pack!

Her Ghost In The Fog


" Putting reason to flight or to flame unashamed,
I swept form cries, mesmerized by the taffeta ley,
Or Her hips that held sway over all those at bay,
Save a mist on the rise, a final blessing to hide
HER GHOST IN THE FOG... "

Within Model's Workshop, there was quite the fun challenge presented. Of which, it was to style this beautiful creation of Mila Tatham's SoliDea FoliEs. Whilst laying my eyes upon it, I was listening to a song at the time that inspired me to take my style a bit different of a direction as I always do. Now I didn't go completely with the song as it describes the phantom being, but rather drew my own inspirations from it. To put a different spin on it than what most were doing, I went with editorial hair, a simple neck ribbon to accent the dress, and floral jewelry that included petals flying out to the wind. With eyes as black as ravens, I stepped out upon the waters where the mist began to gather, becoming her ghost in the fog.
