A Mix of the Fantastical

A Mix of the FantasticalToday’s outfit is brought to you by Ferosh Fashion Institute. I say that because most of it was created as the assignment for Competition Modeling II class. My homework was to create a Halloween-inspired pageant styling. I figured I should use a dramatic gown, and the one created by Vann exactly fit the trick. For today’s post I specifically added the makeup and wings (which are bento!). The whole combination is a mix of dragon, demon and fairy; to be even more zany I did it in front of a vampiric background.

As an aside, this entry is exciting for me because it’s the first time I’ve been able to wear omega makeup on my Genesis Labs head! GL has updated all the head packages to include a copy specifically mapped to work with these appliers. I couldn’t be happier! That had been my only sad face moment with GL heads, but I don’t have to feel that way anymore.

Take Me to your Leader

Today is the opening of Catwalk’s Trunk Show retail area! Unfortunately, I’ll be away and unable to participate in the subsequent runway shows, but I wanted to make sure that you got a peek at some of the outfits before I leave. As you can see, I’m channeling a contemporary Princess Leia with this look. The sleeves on this dress are what drew me to it – they certainly make a statement. As a side note, if you’re a tall girl like I am, I recommend wearing tights with this dress because it’s mini!

Dress: {VU} – When Aliens Attack available at the Trunk Show
Pose: Posesion from the Lucia set available at TDME
Hair: Truth Hair – Emika.

The Heart Knows All

The Heart Knows All
This set comes with three pendants in different sizes that hang off the layered chains. The chains comes in gold (pictured here), silver and dark silver. The metal color for the pendants, earrings and bracelets can be changed with a HUD to match whichever chains you wear. While I left the hearts and diamonds in the default color, you can actually select from a veritable rainbow that also comes on the HUD. As for the other necklace included in the set, I’m wearing the layered pearl necklace option because I thought it went nicely with the chains, but there is also a long pearl necklace included which you could opt to hang one of the pendants on. That would be equally pretty.

Jewelry: Chop Zuey – A Poor Heart Aflame set
Pose: Posesion from the Lolipop set
Hair: Vanity Hair – Autumn Leaves
Dress: Kenny Rowlands – Parisian Dress (past Tres Chic event item)

City Subway Stop

City Subway Stop
Considering the haircut and jeans, I wanted to go a bit urban today. I think I achieved that with the addition of this sweatshirt from Pixicat which was created to celebrate the 3rd anniversary of the store. I’m happy it’s been around so long – the items Areve makes are incredible.

As I was preparing this blog post, I happened to stop by a shopping event where I ran into someone from a place I used to work. Without delay she said something petty. When it comes to those situations I always feel like silence is best because there is no way to really respond without drama. That’s the beauty of SL – if we run into challenging situations, we can simply ignore the person and teleport out of the location. I only wish it were that easy in real life.

Top: Pixicat – Hoodie.Cropped
Pose: Posesion from the Aute set which is available at The Darkness Monthly
