Pandora's Box in Dark Japan

It's that time of the month again, Pandora's Box has officially opened for July and this time we are heading on a dark and twisted journey into the world that is Dark Japan. Now I know I said this before, and I have no trouble saying it again, that I was and maybe still am, a little concerned about how I will handle this month. I know very little about the Japanese culture, and feel a bit like I might make a mess of things, but once the box was opened I was pleasantly surprised... There were lots of lovely things that I will be able to use and enjoy, to bring new and interesting characters to life... 
So let's take a step into the world of Dark Japan, welcome to the July Pandora's Box... 
Rudh is welcoming you to the Dark Japanese world, wearing a gorgeous Fan Headdress from Occult - in this month's Pandora's Box - it seemed to work perfectly with a non-box related release from WONDERLOST, which is available at the current round of The Secret Affair - and the cute BF Store Choker - which is available in the Pandora's Box. 
In the background - which a lovely photo box created by BUENO - you may notice the dark Shinigami Gazebo which I've used as a decorative prop BUT is also awesome for any Japanese garden - a gift in the Pandora's Box from [QE Home]
Now because this is a Pandora's Box post... You may want a reminder about Pandora's Box... As a basic reminder, the best place to go to sign up for your box is the Pandora's Box HQ. Now that the box has been opened the cost will be 2500L, which will allow you to join the group and get your box - bear in mind though that you only have until May 30th to do so - and all those wonderful goodies will be yours. Then after the last day in May the group will be emptied and sign up begins for the following month's box - which if you join the group before the release date will be 1500L! You can get more information about this at the Pandora's Box Website!!
I wonder what more will await us in Dark Japan, Sushi Perhaps?

A Tale of the Infected

Although I have many characters in SL which come to life depending on the day and my mood, I will admit that my usual Rudhishness is actually a Living Dead Doll... You know that by now I'm sure, and you may have realised that it's all because of a song by Mr Rob Zombie, but did you ever wonder where this storyline of my SL came from? No matter your answer, I'm going to take some time today to tell you the story LOL... Whether you read it or not is up to you, but at least you get a pretty picture to look at as I weave my interesting tale... 
When Rudh was born into the SL world, almost 11 years ago now, the world was a different sort of place, she found her way into a family of dragons swiftly becoming the Princess - a sister to the Golden Dragon Queen. It was at this time she discovered her parental heritage was not what she had once thought, her shape-shifting mother had a penchant for the magical men and she had been brought to life by a match with a Fae Warrior, while her older sister - well you can tell what her paternal heritage was by her title! 
She took many roles in her early life, growing as a Fairy Princess and soon slipping into a darker world of SL becoming a stripper to pay for an ever increasing shopping habit. It was around this time, that poor little Fairy Princess Rudh was bitten by a vampire, yet for some reason the taste of blood was abhorrent to her, and it wasn't long before little Rudh began to fade and become a dolly - not fully alive and not fully dead, a living dead doll... 
The bite wound on her shoulder became infected - thanks to the awesome Apoca Gacha Items from AsteroidBox - and now she enjoys both the dark macabre side of her being while still clinging to the fairy princess that she once was... It's a difficult combination, but on days like today when the needs to hunt down and exact a little revenge on one of those that turned her, she loves nothing more than to wander the abandoned streets of Lockwood and hunt for some fun... 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Truth - Kyoko in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Goggles, Necklace, Wound, Bat & Bag: AsteroidBox - Apoca Survive Gacha Items (Available until July 20th at LootBox Gacha
Top: Hilly Haalan - Gretchen Mini Crop Top and Bra Set

Pose: Signature Pose - Boo

Demonic Lightbringer

There are big storms coming to Holland this afternoon and evening, at least that's what the weather man says - but we know that they aren't right all of the time! Due to the upcoming storms though, it's beginning to get a little dark and close here... Any slight movement brings you out in a sweat, and the dark is coming very early today... I CANNOT WAIT, I LOVE STORMS!! 
Still now that it's getting so dark, we need to find a way to bring the light... Being the dark little miscreant that I am sometimes, I put in a few calls and someone is coming to bring some light very soon... Here she is now in fact...
In the Kingdom of Taure Ru lives a beautiful and serene being,  her name is too difficult to say in the human tongue but many who know of her refer to her as The Lightbringer... 
A demonic creation of Ama - who created the large horns, body tattoo and lamp - and Aii, she brings light into the darkness... A form of torture that some might say is more effective than pain could ever be, the light of always illuminates what people do not wish to see. 
The chains of her dress announce her arrival... Either that or the thunder is very far away but coming at least... For now though a little light is not a bad thing as far as I'm concerned, I have nothing to hide! 

What is she wearing;
Large Horns, Tattoo & Lamp: Ama - The Lightbringer Gacha Items (Available until July 20th at The LootBox Gacha Event
Hair: Truth - Taja in Redheads 
Small Horns & Wounds: {aii} - Kintsukuroi Horns 
Eyes: CUREMORE - Scar Tissue Gacha Items in Allergic Eyes 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Dress: Addams - Queen Metal Dress in N*10 
Pose: Image Essentials - Vogue 2

Killer Heels at the Mouse House

So I have been a bit of a bad blogger lately, I take pictures and lose them in my massive collection on my PC and then things reach the end of the time frame as events close or change round and I still have stuff stashed away from the previous rounds that I intended to blog... I mean, I spend ages getting creative and working my little butt off to make sure I have the shot and outfit list ready then I forget about it... I'm so awesome sometimes LOL!!! 
An example of that is what I plan to share with you today... These AMAZING shoes, which I had to wear to one of my favouritest places ever!!! 
OK OK so it is a SL version of one of my favouritest places ever, but that's OK... The ForeverLand Park of Magic is one of a few Disneyland based locations in SL, and this one seems fairly well put together... LOTS of characters are here to see and it's all so pretty!!! 
Now onto the Shoes, which I'm guessing you may have already noticed the shoes that I'm referring to. I saw these at the last round of Lost & Found which actually closes today, so you may be lucky enough to be able to get in and grab a pair, but I am hoping they are returned to the mainstore - Stelloane - very soon so that you can get your hands on the Dead Mouse Shoes... These tick two boxes for me, my Disney fetish and my dead things fetish LOL... Rudh was a happy girl, though maybe I'd not be allowed to wear these in the true house of the mouse?! 

What is she wearing;
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Shoes: Stelloane - Dead Mouse Queen Shoes (Available until July 18th at Lost & Found
Pose: Image Essentials - Demure 4

Washing it all Away

Hair Fair is now over... This year was a really great one and soon they will be able to tell everyone just how much money was raised on behalf of Wigs for Kids, but it's time to get ready for something new. A new week, a new day and the best way to start a Monday morning is to jump in the shower and sing your little heart out...
I know that the picture seems a little sad, I've been going through a lot lately and I'm sure that I will be able to find the strength to at least give a little insight soon, yet for now I'm going to wash all my troubles away - or as I'm singing "Wash it all away" it provides more meaning at the moment I guess - and start my week with a smile! 
This hair is one of my last Hair Fair releases that I want to share with you, now that the event is officially over I'm sure it will be brought to the store but I couldn't resist this adorable style from Argrace. I love the hair that Argrace makes for editorial use, you wouldn't necessarily want to wear this out on the street but in pictures like this it's PERFECT! Plus it was a 100% Donation item to the charity so I really couldn't resist... 
Now that the fair is over though I'm going to wash out my hair and let it dry before styling into some other random crazy do! I just wish I'd washed my make up off first, Mascara hurts when it gets into your eyes - Running Mascara by ARISE and Smeared Lipstick by Izzie's by the way - luckily the warm water is washing the sting away leaving glistening droplets on my skin - also courtesy of Izzie's.
For now though it's time that I dry myself off and make myself pretty, the world is calling and I need to go buy catfood LOL... 

What is she wearing;
Hair & Pose: Argrace - SHIMIZU in Reds
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Mascara Tears: ARISE - Running Mascara 
Lipstick: Izzie's - Smeared Lipstick 
Water Marks: Izzie's - Wet Body & Face (Available until July 20th at Summerfest
Shower: Dutchie - Vintage Copper Shower BDSM

Bandanas for Genies

It's a very special day today at Hair Fair... The last day of the event has always been a day known as Bandana Day. Today is all about removing your wigs and pulling on one of the charity bandanas that have been made by some awesomely creative people - both well known and lesser known people have thrown their artistic flair onto some awesome bandanas, of which 100% of sales goes directly to the Wigs for Kids charity!
SO every year I make it a mission to choose my favourite of the bandana's and do something fun and silly with it to share the Bandana Day love... This year, the bandana I chose had me feeling a little mystic, a little magical, a little in a bottle perhaps?! 
The Baiastice Bow Turban is a special Bandana for the Hair Fair this year. It's only available until tonight when the even closes until next year but remember when you buy this bandana all the proceeds go to charity. I was instantly thinking of Genies due to the turban so that's why this picture came to life... 
This poor little - moss&mink - Dreamy Genie - is being sucked back into the lamp - also by moss&mink - and apparently she really doesn't want to if the look on her face is anything to go by. Is that something you can blame her for though I mean SERIOUSLY that lamp is TINY!!! 

What is she wearing;
Head Accessory: Baiastice - Bow Turban in Turquoise (Available until July 16th at Hair Fair 2017) 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2

Honey for Pooh

Tomorrow is a special day at Hair Fair, and I will be able to share that with you then but for today, I wanted to take some time out and revert to something a little childish... 
Hair Fair is all about raising money for the children in need of wigs due to circumstances beyond their control... So I think it's apt that I do something a child would appreciate, just this once! Of course, it has to be Disney related... 
I mentioned before that my mother used to read me fantasy stories, but it was my father that actually introduced me to Winnie the Pooh. 
I was at a little Gacha event called The Gacha Guardians, where I stumbled across this adorable gacha set by comet, the 100 Acre Wood Gacha that is complete with Pooh, Piglet and if you're very lucky Eeyore! 
Now to attract the bees and make some more honey for Pooh, I'm wearing a pretty Sunflower in my hair - a new hair from Wasabi Pills for this year's Hair Fair!! 
Anyone think of sharing my honey?

What is she wearing;
Hair Accessory: BOOM - Sunflower Hair Decor in Original 
Hair: Wasabi Pills - Elle Mesh Hair in Reds (Available until July 16th at Hair Fair 2017
