SL Hallowe’en — Enter freely and of your own will….

“‘Welcome to my house. Come freely. Go safely; and leave something of the happiness you bring!… I am Dracula; and I bid you welcome….'”

“I was not alone. The room was the same, unchanged in any way since I came into it; I could see along the floor, in the brilliant moonlight, my own footsteps marked where I had disturbed the long accumulation of dust. In the moonlight opposite me were three young women, ladies by their dress and manner. I thought at the time that I must be dreaming when I saw them, for, though the moonlight was behind them, they threw no shadow on the floor.”

Bram Stoker
Dracula

Feeling a little…undead lately?  Want to dress appropriately?  Why not try this combination?  My good friend Nanceee Sinatra, co-owner of Frank’s Place (which I’ve written about several times here) also does the occasional dress under the Sinatra label.  She kindly gifted me with two colors of her Resurrection gown — appropriately named, don’t you think, for a vampire?  Especially one as sexy as this!  The skirt goes down to there on the right, and is cut up to here on the left, while the bodice plunges almost to places unknown in front, and sure does so in back.

If you’re now one of the walking dead, you have to look the part, don’t you?  No glittery skins, like those poseurs in Forks, Wash.  No, ice-pale is the way to go; and Adam n Eve had a nice super-pale geisha skin I chose here, called Mei Li 2 (the particular skin is the Geisha 1 makeup).  To go with that, a friend in the Fashion Emergency gifted me with a set of thick, black lashes you have to try on to believe!  They’re Artemis from the oBscene, and they’re excellent for the dramatic look I was aiming for here.

If you want a look like this, your shoes need to ascent to the stratosphere.  I’m not in ballet heels here, but Adam n Eve’s Babii pumps — in black, of course — fit the bill nicely.  Topping it all off, the jewelry is almost all in black pearls — Primalot’s Luna black enamel bracelet with inset pearls; Muse’s Catherine cocktail ring in gold; and Dahlinks’ Chloe back-knotted pearl strand make up most of the bling here.  I wanted a bit more color, though; a rich vampiress should have her share of diamonds, too.  So I threw into the mix a pair of platinum earrings with diamonds by RH Engel, and a favorite cocktail ring from a season or so ago by Paper Couture.

The crowning touch:  the hair is Sirena Makayla (in jet black, of course).  This is another of Sirena’s recent new releases, and is animated like so many of her ‘dos.  I’m wearing it down for this shot, but the updo is excellent as well.  (One note on the updo — when I tried it out, the hair didn’t go all the way immediately.  I had to do a teleport to get the down strands to derezz properly.  Your mileage may vary.)

Anybody know where I can find Jonathan Harker, now…?

The Highest Boot Uppers in Second Life?

When I was going around the military regions the other day, I thought I’d give the boys in world some inspiration; let ’em know what they’re fightin’ for, you know.  And it gave me a chance to show off one of my latest finds:

Tuskegee 3

The folks at B&G Shoes make no claim; but it’s my opinion that these are the boots with the longest set of uppers in Second Life.  If there are any taller, send me a picture, and I’ll publish it!  I’m not particularly into all those buckles, but they work for these boots for some reason.  The set is scripted for sizing and sound, with the pretty much usual controls:  click on the left in a script-allowed region, and select from the menu.

The details (shape/skin/eyes are my current standard):

  • PixelDolls Stephanie corset
  • DnG black leather shorts
  • Kiss Cassandra hair (Arizona shade, large size) (Elke Banting)
  • B&G Sendra boots (black) (BG Planer)
  • Digit Darkes Tintable Glitter nail polish (silver)
  • Jewelry:  Dahlinks BoHo silver hoop earrings (Alexandra Nichols); PixelDolls Stone Pendant necklace (lapis lazuli) (Dolce Blackflag); G&S silver ring with bezel emerald (right hand) (Biff Stine); Yabusaka silver ring style 01 (color-changing stone, set to sapphire); 77 Designs women’s gift watch (available [last I knew] in BBC World sim) (left hand) (Anik Goff); eyecandy Hellenic Copper/Turquoise Cuff (Candy Cerveau)

And with this article, I’ve done it; seven days straight of publishing articles for the Big Bad Blog Challenge.  It’s been an interesting thing, and kept me hunting for ideas for articles.  I’m not sure if I can keep this string running, but it’s kept my writing fingers tapping at the keys (grin).
