Beauty Nightmares

It's been a while since I've done anything somewhat strange - I KNOW that most of my pictures tend to have a hint of the crazies, but I mean more than usual - and I wanted to spend some time playing dress up and making a fantastical creature since it's something that always makes me smile and feel better about myself. 
Today I was able to get my hands on something that shouldn't really have been so kookie and abnormal, but somehow ended up doing exactly that. What started with a sexy looking bodysuit rapidly became a crazy character in my mind, and well... as per usual, the rest is Rudhish History! 
So let's start at the beginning, this whole outfit started out because I was able to get my hands on this soon to be released - at the upcoming Dark Style Fair, which by the way I will no doubt be talking about at a later stage when the event opens on May 1st - bodysuit called Android 18 from Nightmare! These bodysuits will be available in three different options - TriBlack, seen here, TriWhite and Plain - but you have to wait just a little longer as they will not be available until May 1st. Also available from Nightmare at the event will be a set of Android 18 tattoos - not shown, but still cool to see - which includes a chest piece that sits over the heart and has various images for it's centre. I'll attach copies of the original ads below to give you a better idea of what you get - as I'm so awesomely helpful sometimes!
Yet one thing lead to another with this look... First the Android body suit, and the positioning of the chest piece because something robotic - or perhaps Frankenstein's Bride ish?! This then lead on to the though of her having had her heart removed since having the chest piece say "Error" was an option, so I needed a wound and well... One Surgery became a need for more beauty touch ups! I cannot explain the need for just one eye though... I guess that was down to the whole monsterish nature, and the fact that the perfect place for all of these operations just happened to be Dr.Frankenstein's lab - a WHOLE WHEAT?! 
Weird I KNOW lol, but just let my mind roll with it, and I hope that it brings a smile to your face in one way or another... If this doesn't work, then wait until May 1st, because I'm sure that the back of this very sexy bodysuit will DEFINITELY be a cause for a smile!!

Through the Rose Garden

After her harrowing experiences at the hands of a dark and mysterious captor, Rudh was eventually freed, but sometimes as is the case with many a dark twisted romance, the victim and captor have fallen in love... Such was the case with Harley Quinn and the Joker, but without the toxic waste or the insanity - and yes I have just recently seen the movie Suicide Squad which is why I bring that up now! 
Finally freed, the man that lurks in shadows left her a gift of a new dress, something that she slips on and that fits her like a glove, along with the most delicate looking white rose as a symbol of new beginnings but also one of remembrance. Though her biggest surprise, her sudden freedom aside, was that when she went to walk away, she turned a corner and it was beautiful... 
The Outer Garden of the Rose Imperialistic is filled with soft sweet rose blooms, and although maybe not for her alone, this gesture from her mysterious captor makes poor little Rudh's heart sing a little. 
Her dress is a somewhat new release from Addams, something that she's had her eye on for a while, a form fitting Donatella dress in a soft shade of gray, and it's as if he knew that was what she wanted... 
Maybe now he will reveal his true form and let her know him, but as our heroic victim walks through the roses all she can do is close her eyes, to dream and let the horrors of yesterday disappear... 

What is she wearing;
Hair: TRUTH - Zora in Reds (Past Group Gift)  
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Dress: Addams - Donatella Dress in N*41 
Rose: ASO! - Rose Gacha Item in Bud Ice (Available until April 29th at Pose Fair 2017

Hello, Is someone there?! Please help me!

Some days you feel like you're being watched, and that is a feeling that doesn't feel all that good. Someone's looking over your shoulder, watching your every move and waiting for you to slip up - falling on your face. Maybe it's a sign of the usually well-hidden lack of self-esteem that I have, a sign that the cracks are there no matter what kind of veneer I put over the top of them, and that I worry so much about pleasing others that I'm afraid to fail anyone - no matter how much they hurt me in return. OR maybe it's all a sign of me over thinking too much, I do that too, and it leaves me feeling lost and alone without reason. The mind can be a pretty treacherous thing sometimes... Fear is the most difficult of all emotions to deal with, as it resonates into all walks of life. 
Yet sometimes, things like fear can summon up other emotions... Things like fear can draw things out of us that we didn't believe possible - strength, passion and even in some very rare cases desire... 
Today I have a sense of desire to protect myself, born of a perhaps unreal fear, but a feeling that's lurking in my brain... Images spring to life, but the image that I've created today of Rudh, really screams and shares that feeling of being watched whilst feeling alone all at once...
Would you believe that all these emotions came bubbling to the surface to become art because of one of the smallest pieces in this picture? I must have been harbouring these feelings in my mind, but there is ONE tiny object that brought this to life...
That object is the very pretty, very dainty looking, "Softly Bound" ribbon cuff from Ama - which is available until the 23rd at Tie Me Up by the way. This item could have taken me in all kinds of directions, from something pretty to something overly kinky, but instead it lead me somewhere dark and twisted. I guess it doesn't help that HellBone gave me this awesome Witch's Recluse Chair - from Jian - that looked SO perfect in his DRD Makeshift Refuge! 
Now I will admit that although Rudh is being watched in this picture, and things do look a little sinister, I would have had a hard time taking this picture with the shadow of anyone else. There are very few people in SL that have seen my truly vulnerable side, and the man watching me is one of those. Having people like him around make the bad feelings fade into good ones, and I guess - much like taking this photo and writing a blog post - talking here really helps too... Right now that feeling I had when I started has gone, I just hope that it stays well buried and deep within the shadows from now on! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: ARGRACE - KOHAKU in Reds 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Bruises: antielle - Appetizer Bites & Hickies (No Longer Available)
Ribbon Cuff: Ama - Softly Bound in Infinity (Available until April 23rd at Tie Me Up)
Chair: JIAN - Witch's Recluse Gacha Item in Chair 
Set: DRD - Makeshift Refuge

"Got any Aces & 8's HellBone?"

Today is HellBone and My RL three year wedding anniversary! I've been married to this very attractive set of pixels RL driver for three long years and boy the things that we've faced together in both worlds! Not gonna go into all those things now, it's just one thing after another but instead of having the time to do something cute and romantic for our anniversary picture, Hell has been fairly busy... Watching a set of "backstabbers" that seem to not know the meaning behind the idea of Back Stabbing! 
So I joined him during his surveillance, and well I got bored of watching liars, so maybe I distracted him playing a little game?!
Nothing kinky, he's not into that kinda fun in SL lol... Dirty bastards for thinking that way - though I don't blame you because that's where my mind would have gone too! We had a quiet game of cards in the car, as he sat watching the birth of yet another "100L MC" by yet another Wannabe MC President with know idea about what they are doing. 
The pose is actually one from Come Soon called "Full House", that's available at the current Pose Fair. So many different poses all in one location, it's hard to choose which to use, but this one by Come Soon is definitely one of my favourites at the event. 
It's a great spot for a little surveillance! I wonder if HellBone has a hand full of Aces & 8s?! I wonder if he's about to stab me in the back LOL... Oh wait no he's not gonna hit me, he's just gonna bring the smackdown - he's got deadman's hands!! LOL! 

What is she wearing;

Exploring the Shadows

I looked back through my ramblings this morning to see what I've done, what I've learnt and how far I've come in my SL during the past few months and boy do I seem to have a million different personalities. My mind seems to be all over the place, but there are so many weird and wonderful characters that I simply couldn't pick a favourite! 
Though one thing was missing with all of these characters, and SOMEHOW - though please don't ask me how - I managed to get it back!! MY SHADOWS ARE WORKING AGAIN YAY!!!!!
I decided to go for a walk at the amazing Woodbury Falls with my shadow, through the dark and scary dead place... Not the best place to walk in the fading light of day, but I wasn't alone I had my shadow with me, and trust me you will be seeing my shadow a LOT more over the next few months! 
While I have that as my most exciting piece of news, I cannot forget to share with you a new release that I was wearing in this picture too...
These jeans are that exciting thing! A brand new release from Nightmare for the Depraved Nation Thrift Shop 15, these are the Eire Jeans in Lace! Don't like them in Lace, no problem they are available in 4 different designs but they are all AWESOME. Look good on any bottom and very cute too! Don't believe me, check out the ad, and then run along like good girlies to grab some...

The Gators MC - Not your Average MC!

I was asked to do something fairly recently by members of the Gators MC that always makes me feel a little stressed... I love them all but working on a family picture always brings me out in hives! It needs to be something that people like, something that people want to share and something where everyone looks great, but there are things like make sure all the people that need to be there are where they need to be at the right time! It makes me stress even just thinking about taking it, so it's not something that I do every day! 
But it was time, and although I had to edit people in at a later date, the outcome worked and it looks pretty good!
I used a pose that has space for 10 different avatars called "Friends and Family" from Image Essentials - and yes before anyone says anything there are in fact 12 people shown in the photo above. I mentioned before that I had to photo-shop people who weren't present into the picture at a later date, and these were on separate pose balls which I have listed the details of below too. I also needed to make sure that HellBone - the MC President - was sat in the middle, and because the pose in the chair was very female I had to use another pose for that too... 
Now I know that this was a little cheeky, and I really hope that I don't get into any trouble with the Image Essentials team for adding in poses, I LOVED the pose and that was why I needed to make sure that this was the one that the Gators used, but I needed more than 10 people and a manly pose in the middle. 
So that you can see the way the pose is created by Kay - of Image Essentials - I am including the original ad and will say that this is one of the great poses that Kay has made which is perfect for a lot of people. If you need large group poses, I always recommend Image Essentials, and no that's not me sucking up LOL!!! 

What is in the Photo;
Main Pose: Image Essentials - Friends and Family Pose 
Male Middle Seated Pose: Come Soon - The Alpha Pose 4 
Male Left Kneel Pose: S1- Bonus MP (No Longer Available!) 
Female Back Third From Left Pose: Image Essentials - Ragnar Pose 4

Wonderland Easter

Good Morning, it's Easter Sunday. The one day of the year that it's officially OK - in fact a faux pas if you do not - eat chocolate for Breakfast... It's the mandatory breakfast of the day today, and many kids will be waking up to hunt for little chocolate eggs that a magical bunny has pooped! 
I don't mean to offend anyone if people reading this are enjoying Easter for it's religious reasons, you should enjoy your day as you want to, for me though I am not religious so today is all about Chocolate!! Bunnies too! I guess... 
Though when I started to work on something a little bunnyesque, it wasn't the cute fluffy kind - or even the hot sexy playboy kind - that became the bunny of Rudh's Easter! 
The Rudh bunny is something straight out of a weird and dark wonderland it seems. and I'm not sure she'd give you eggs - it looks like you're more likely to get tortured perhaps? 
Taken whilst she was hiding things at one of my favourite wonderland style locations - Mystical Fae Forest - this little rabbit bears all the marks of Wonderland, from that crazed look in her eye, to the hearts that decorate her skin even after she fought for her freedom and was brutally scarred - thanks to this amazing "Trauma Face" wound from Absence
Now remember kids, if you go out hunting for eggs today, watch out for this Bunny... She's not as friendly as she may at first appear!

What is she wearing;
Ears & Hat: Half-Deer - Velven Bunny Ears 
Hair: Exile - Gina in Reds (Gift) 
Skin: Glam Affair - Seya in Europa 2 
Left Eye: Suicidal Unborn - Phantom Eyes V2

Cheek Wound: Absence - Trauma Face 
Whiskers: aveluxe - Mesh Whiskers 
Lipstick: [GA.EG] - O-LP07 Lipheart 
Collar:  random.Matter - Wretched Collar
