On The Darkside

When RL starts throwing punches, it can be highly distracting. A few hours in SL last night, helped me to relax, destress and just chill for a bit. Something I need to do more often. :)

I did manage a couple of hours at the Hair Fair which lightened my linden balance considerably, but this post isn't about those. :P I wanted to showcase 2 new releases from EMOtions because I think they're breathtaking, especially when paired together. This gown just flows with your movements and the intricate bodice is breathtaking. Paired with a brand new updo just released last Saturday, I couldn't have been more pleased.  Paired with this interesting and flawless skin from Glam Affair, it was the perfect dramatic look to suit my overly-dramatic life and mood.  Here's my walk on the darkside:


Skin: -Glam Affair-  Roza - Natural OneVoice
Eyes: IKON 'Sunrise' Eyes - Light Arabian Blue
Hair: .:EMO-tions:. * DEIDRE */black
Gown: .:EMO-tions:. AYLEEN
Lashes: Koketka0-*Eyelashes v.18*
Earrings: .( bewildebeest ). Alma Earrings - Silver - Onyx
Oh, and if you stop by EMOtions to pick up either (or both) of these items, be sure to join their group while you're there.  The gifts are often and lovely.

Knocked down and back up

There has been some upheaval in my in my RL lately, so I've gotten very behind on my blog posts.  Argh!  Catching up seems impossible, so to make life a bit easier, we're going to move on from here.

Hair Fair 2012 has arrived, and EMOtions has several new styles for the fair.  Each one has 2 different styles, and are scripted to change with a click. They include a really cute animation as the hairstyle changes, also.  I was utterly charmed. Due to the aforementioned upheaval, I decided to take a few pictures to serve as a statement on my RL at the moment.  One of the EMOtions Hair Fair releases was the perfect hair to wear for these photos:

Help Gala

This is a departure from my usual blogging style.  It's not about clothes, but about the intellectural property right battle currently being fought by Gala Phoenix, owner of Curio. I won't share all of the details...they can already be found on numerous SL-related blogs all over the internet.  I will, however, share a link where you can read more about an upcoming benefit scheduled to run from July 9-15 and featuring some of SL's best designers.  The purpose of this event is to help Gala with any legal expenses she incurs.  It also will serve the purpose of showing designers united against the problem that is virtual copyright infringement.  Here's where you can find out more about the benefit:

New Color Challenge-Cadmium Red

Hi, fellow fashion-lovers.  I've been very lax with this blog and there's so much gathering in my inventory which I really need to get photo'd, but for now my posting will be a bit sporadic. 

This week's color was actually an easy one, I thought.  The color is cadmium red, and I actually found 2 outfits which I liked.  They inspired me to portray a couple of the facets of Shiloh...delicate by day and dangerous by night:
