Life in the Shadows


This month the theme at Genre is Gothic. It’s been ages since I dressed more on the darker side and I was inspired to change up my bright pinks for a while. The main inspiration for the change was the beautiful pale skins from La Petite Morte out at Genre. I am wearing the darker of the two shades offered and the even paler still tone is just as beautiful.

For the rest of my outfit I went inventory diving. Yay! Saving money is fun!
Oh wait… except my hair. *sigh* didn’t save as much money as I thought.
I am so totally in love with this hair style and the fun dye colors it comes in. There are two different packs of the fun dip dyes and I think I might have to go back for the other pack. It was really hard to choose which one when i was shopping the first time around.
It’s called Baby from Taketomi which I had never really heard of although I think I saw something that they are re-branded from another hair store.
I have never understood the constant re-branding some stores do, especially when they are still around and producing. I totally get if you leave SL for a while then come back and want to do something new. I’m not saying that’s what this store did, just a little extra Dizzy Thoughts for ya.

Skate Through Life


Just a fun little outfit that came together after yet another trip to both The Arcade and C88. I am pretty much doomed when it comes to this round of C88. The theme that most things were made in is right up my ally.

Sunshine Splash


I have been sitting on this outfit for a while. I meant to blog it ages ago, but got really lazy. I guess it’s a good thing beings I found better things to go with it at the new rounds of Arcade and Collaber88. Always fun when procrastination pays off.
I picked up the dress from last round (or a few rounds ago I really forget, I have been wearing this dress forever it seems) of C88. I immediately had an idea for it, but finding the items I needed in SL was another thing all together. I never could find exactly what I pictured in my head, but I got pretty close.
Unbelievably I have changed out of my Dutch Touch skin (for this post anyways). I have on Mirte from The Skinnery, my first Skinnery skin. I kept seeing it on a friend and everytime would ask her what the skin was… I am sure much to her annoyance. I figured I should go check it out if it caught my attention enough to ask every time I saw it. The Skinnery is definitely a place I will keep my eye on from now on!
