Back to hang out with a Flat Rodvik Linden - Monday's Berry Meme

HELLLOOOOOOOOO, I'm Back! Did anyone miss me??
I had a lovely week visiting my parents, though it was a little too short for my liking, but still I guess beggars can't be choosers - or however that old saying goes - and I take what I get! Not like I won't see them for a while, I mean it's not as if they are the other side of the world or anything!
Anyway, I arrived back home on Monday, but have been way too out of it to try and think in a straight line to get my blog mojo kick started again - though I did manage to finally kick start it yesterday when I was finally able to play around with the items that have been released for this month's Horror Haute! I was also - excited I might add - giggling about the fact that I could use this photo to complete the awesome blog Meme challenge posted by Miss Strawberry Singh!
So OK first off... The Flat Rodvik Linden Meme is this week's speciality from Miss Berry... I had no idea what I was going to do with him until I saw the item from NeverMore for this month's Horror Haute. I couldn't stop myself getting a fit of the giggles as I pushed his flat form into the cauldron... I just really hope that I don't get smited by the SL God's now! Mr Rodvik Linden, I beg forgiveness *points at Berry* She made me do it! LOL!
The outfit managed to fall together, as soon as I knew what I would be doing pose wise. There were so many lovely things available for Horror Haute this month that I do feel kind of like I've been spoilt! Yet the wings screamed at me for some reason - possibly harking back to my fae roots of my earliest days in SL - but these Souzou Eien wings come in 6 different colours and normal or petite sizes. The dress was also too pretty to miss too - made by Skindustrial Bodyworks this dress has a drape in the back and subtle shades of pink decorated with crows. I topped the look off with the adorable horns decorated with moths and strings from Dead Apples...
There are other things here that need to be mentioned too... Sugar's latest skin release for the Thrift Store Event, includes 5 skins with different make-up, and this Gothika version was perfect for the look I was going for! I have a love for Sugar Skins - they seem to fit me perfectly and they come with a boatload of extras, including the new collarbone options meaning you can have differing shading around your collarbone and therefore have more or less definition of that particular area! Sounds complicated but it's not! Trust me LOL!
I've also been wearing the adorable Cute Poison necklace, released for SL Fashion Week - available in three different metal colours! 
Horror Haute is ending today so some of the goodies may change price, but I couldn't resist sharing these pretties... RUSH TO GET THEM NOW WHILE YOU CAN!

Seek home for rest, for home is best!

The title of this post is a quote from the poet Thomas Tusser, but to be honest I cannot think of a more appropriate title for this post.The reason I say this is because today, I am going home to the UK for a week... Going to see my mummy, work on wedding plans, talk to a doctor for a different opinion about my ailments and generally just relax. I know it's not a beach holiday or even somewhere exciting but to me a trip to see my parents and sister and go back to my roots is definitely a way of resting!
So in my process of getting ready for my travels I became like a whirling dervish... digging out clothing and pulling my house apart looking for things I would need... The house now looks like there has been an explosion of apocalyptic proportions... Something that could be helped by the fact that I have been playing around with the goodies that are available now at Total Anarchy
This is just gonna be a quick one, as I am leaving home in a few hours and still have so much to do lol, but I couldn't resist sharing all these adorable things! The dress from PixyStix is possibly the most eye catching element of my post apocalyptic holiday packing look lol... I love the vibrant yellow of its poisonous colour but other colours are available too! I was forced to wear a gas mask too, seeing as the dust was flying all over, and luckily I have a special one to show off from Kita's Sideshow with its Cthulhu style tentacles... Finally, though not so clear here but maybe it will be more visible on my Flickr stream, but the make-up I'm wearing is from Spyralle and its gorgeous LOL! 
For the background I found the perfect setting to display my look, a ruined house that looks pretty much more or less like mine right now - Hazardous
Still... that's it from me, I will be logging into SL to check messages and clear stuff but other than that enjoy the peace and quiet away from my ramblings! 

What is she wearing; 
Hair: Exile - Midnight in Paris in Raven

Feral Bandanas and a Monday Meme

Warning; LONG POST COMING lol... 
Basically lots of things to share really... I finally managed to get into Hair Fair after delaying it for a while, and it was rather easy to wander around... I bought a few hair styles, but not as many as I have done in previous years and then made a quick pit-stop into one of the Bandana Day Stores. The bandanas are created by a wide range of people people, with all proceeds going towards the charity Wigs for Kids. 
But the basis of this post was actually more to answer the questions posted by Strawberry Singh for this week's Monday Meme all about the weird questions... Something that was supposed to be a little easier for us since she has given us some hard Memes recently... These questions weren't that much easier to be honest, but I did started and finished in a few days and it's just taken me this long to get them posted! 
So enough of the chit chat, time for some random questions a la Miss Berry!
How do you deal with criticism? I am not that good with criticism, I try to pretend that I am but depending on who gives me the criticism I sometimes have been known to take it the wrong way. As much as it shames me to admit it, I can and will sometimes act like a bit of a brat when someone tells me that they think something I've done could be improved. There are a few people I will always rely on to be totally honest with me, and when they are I will always accept what they say - I occasionally have no issue accepting it from strangers too but I think to be honest I'd much rather hear someone's honest opinion than be told something I've done is good, when in fact it is a pile of rubbish with a capital R!
What’s the most infuriating thing other SL residents do? Well I have to say that I agree with Berry about people hiding behind their PC screens when they are being rude to people. Sure the internet does provide some level of anonymity but I am one of those people that will not just treat SL as a game, it is way more to me than that, so when people are rude to me it really does feel like a personal attack. The way I think of it is, if you wouldn't do something like that to a stranger on the street, why would you think it's OK to do that to a stranger just because you are pixels not flesh?
Which SL resident would you most like to have lunch with and why? A tough question because I would love to say ALL of my friends, but I think that the one person in SL that I would most like to have lunch with is my bestiepops, my Fairy Bobmother! One day it will happen sugar, just you wait and see!
Who would you say is your “anti” role model? Someone who serves as a warning rather than an inspiration? Damn these questions are hard this week LOL I thought you said this was going to be a little easier Berry! I can think of a few people that would be my "anti" role models. I've met a fair few since being in the Biker community. To me it seems unbelievable but there are some women in there that pass around pictures of their private parts before even talking to a guy without a partner in his box. Woe betide any woman that ever passes something like that to HellBone... You'll see a different side to Rudh then!
What was something you used to enjoy, but was ruined for you? As a message to Berry, I'm sorry that it was ruined for you, it's comments like that that really make me feel thankful that I avoided that form of social media! I used to enjoy hanging out at clubs in SL for the music and a chance to meet new people, recently I have started getting back into it but there was a long period that I was put off going into them due to the fact that one club I hung out in particular a lot, seemed to be more about creating drama for other people than for having fun!
What’s something you want to do that you’d be embarrassed to tell other people about? LOL I love the way that you post these questions Berry but then back out of answering them yourself LOL. Let me see, stuff that I might be embarrassed to share here... Normally I try to keep myself like an open book, but maybe there are things about my RL that would be embarrassing, such as my middle name UGH! LOL!
What’s the oddest term of endearment you’ve ever used or that someone’s used for you? I use a lot LOL, but my nearest and dearest will often be the ones with the weirdest LOL... I think I even called someone Schnookiepants before! I couldn't tell you them all they just come out depending on who it is and most people will never be called the same thing twice LOL.
Have you ever fallen in love with another SL resident? Yes, he and I are getting married in RL in April! We met working at a club, he offered me a gig ticket in RL, we started dating in RL then in SL, I moved to Holland after only being with him for 6 months and then in March this year on a vacation to Disneyland Paris on my Birthday that man got down on one knee in front of a huge crowd and put a ring on my finger LOL... One of the best vacations ever that!
Describe a time/event in your slife that you’re nostalgic for. There are a few times that I can think of... Some of them just fizzled out a little, others ended with a bang, but I am now at the point where I can look back and smile! My SL family hanging out in the skybox - those were the days! My days working my ass of and getting stressed at Seraphim - although I miss the challenge a little now thinking back on it! The friends that came and went - there are at least two of those that I think about almost daily!
What’s something sweet you’d like someone to do for you? Come and say hello and tell me a funny joke. I love meeting new people and am always too shy to approach people in world, it always makes me feel happy inside to talk to someone new and find something to laugh about with them!

SL DisneyBounding - Week 19

So two Disney posts in one weekend, I know it's not normal but Miss Natalee Oodles has been in her RL and as it's summer, and as I have said before we will let her off! However, this does mean that this weekend we get a double dose of DisneyBounding... I've already worked on one main movie character this week... We had Alice just before, but this time we are moving into princess territory! Dun Dun Dunnnnnnn... Yes ladies and gents, call out the royal guard, one of Disney's oldest princesses is on her way - interesting fact for you, Sleeping Beauty was the third Princess movie coming out in 1959 following Snow White and Cinderella!
Week 19 - AURORA
The princess who like me could sleep for 100 years - though I guess she never had to wait that long seeing has she had already danced with the prince she was betrothed too before she was cursed to sleep, and that could have lead the story in a rather more macabre and disturbing direction. She is the third princess and her movie comes complete with my all time favourite Disney villain - Maleficent! Not to mention her three fairy guardians - being freaking awesome - one of my RL nicknames at college was Merryweather (named for the blue fairy LOL)! 
Though when it came to playing dress up as a Rudh version of her, I wanted to avoid the flowing pretty dresses and opted for something a bit lighter and more comfortable to spend 100 years asleep in. I was digging through my inventory when I spotted in a note card about SAKIDE's new dresses, released for The Black Market... OH MY GOSH - SO PRETTY! The patterns on the dresses and the way they fit are awesome! For 100L you get a HUD that allows colour change for 8 different colours, the brighter ones have such a summery feeling too them, that I will confess in all the hot weather in RL I simply have not wanted to take this dress off... 
Also, yes I am blonde AGAIN! Aurora is blonde, so I went with a matching blond look, even adorning an uber cute tiara from Noodles - it was one of the gacha tiaras made as "Be Our Guest" but to be honest I didn't think the Disney princesses would mind sharing LOL... Finally as every princess knows, having slippers is important, you never know when you are gonna need to get up in the middle of the night to visit the little princesses room!

What is she wearing;
Tiara: Noodles - Be Our Guest Tiara in Silver (Past Arcade Item)
Hair: Magika - Tangle
Skin: Sugar - Avril in Rockin Ruby
Eyes: Stirling Artistry - Grimm Eyes in Rumplestiltskin
Face Piercing: Cute Poison - Zephyr Piercing (Current Group Gift)
Bracelet: KOSH - Infinity Bracelet
Dress: SAKIDE - Ray of Light Dress (Available now at The Black Market)
Slippers: Legit - Fuzzy Slippers (Past Black Market Item)
Bed: Maleficent's Day Bed (Made by Giulietta Sugarplum)

Demonic Sugar from Food Fair

Food Fair started today, and oh my gosh looking at the things available I found my stomach rumbling and boy am I going food shopping! Though I needed to have some time to sit and play with one of my favourite toys, all the while fighting off my hunger by nibbling at the candies that were decorating it!
The main reason I became a sugar loving demon, is due to the fact that Iokko Molko of Sugar created these awesome headbands decorated with doughnuts for Food Fair... Who doesn't like doughnuts?? Really?? 
In fact I am really Sugary today, I am draped in stuff that is pure Sugar hehe... 
Basically Iokko has been working her sugary butt off and has released so much in one serving that a girl has to pick through things with some care. Starting with the Shirt, this is a Kawaii Gone Bad hoodie that was released as a past Woeful Wednesday special. It comes complete with bunny ears on the hood! Bunny Ears! YAY! I'm also wearing a demon tail from Sugar that comes with it's own storage for a yummy doughnut snack. The tail was also a past Woeful Wednesday item, but I am hoping that these things may still be available to you at the main store, if they aren't I am sorry!

What is she wearing;
Headband: Sugar - Yummy Bites Headband in Choco Sprinkle Bow Ultra Rare (Available at Food Fair)
Hair: Wasabi Pills - Selene Mesh Hair in Crystal Pink
Skin: (RED)MINT - Prime in Goblin Skin
Mouth Dribble: {Sugar Heart} - Messy Mouth with White Sprinkles (Past Group Gift) 
Top: Sugar - Kawaii Gone Bad Hoodie in Bad Sugar (Past Woeful Wednesday)
Tail: Sugar - Nom Nom Tail in Zombi Donuts (Past Woeful Wednesday)
Ring: Mandala - Motsumame in Black/Silver
Pants: Auxiliary - Skinny Jeans in Ombre Blue/Peach

SL DisneyBounding - Week 18

Disney Time, Disney Time, Disney Time... A double shot this week as poor Miss Oodles, our Disney leader, has been caught up in her RL and having very little time to Disney! Still it's the summer time, we can't expect her to stay tied to her computer all the time now can we lol...
This week we head back to Wonderland and hit the main character's wardrobe... In the Disney movie she wears very simple but also a fairly young style outfit... Oh no no that wouldn't work for me, like I did with Boo, I kinda sorta made my DisneyBounding version just a little bit older hehe... 
Week 18 - ALICE 
The prim and proper little darling that is Alice... Curious, slightly nosy perhaps and rather determined in her quest for the white rabbit. She meets the most colourful array of characters in any of the Disney movies, and that for me rooted the movie in my top 5 Disney Movies!
So my look for Alice, as I have already said, was a little more of a grown up version, with that typically edgy Rudh style. I mean basically Alice goes to a place that is truly bonkers and comes out with all her hair in the right place... My version was reflecting that madness, with it´s ripped top and messy hair. I gave a nod to two key elements of the story in the form of my necklaces - both from Maxi Gossamer - the shorter being a watch that could have belonged to the white rabbit and the longer being the drink me potion!
The location proved to be interesting too... I wanted somewhere with an Alice in Wonderland type feel, but I didn't want it to be a typical tea party scene, as I had done that with the Mad Hatter, so when I stumbled upon the crazy adventure that is Bubbles in Wonderland, I wandered around and had a lovely conversation with two pretty roses!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Magika - Please
Skin: PixyStix - Miss Busty in Penelope Special 02 (Available now at the Miss Busty SL Pageant)
Glasses: ellemeno - Dirty Glasses in Black 
Face Wounds: Corvus - Scarred Face Tattoo
Face Piercing: (Forehead) Cute Poison - Chimerical, AND (Lip) Cute Poison - Zephyr Piercing (Current Group Gift)
Necklaces: (Short) Maxi Gossamer - Patience Heart Watch in Gold, AND, (Long) Maxi Gossamer - Wonderland Elixir (Past Limited Event)
Top: LE FORME - Ripped Shirts in Urban Legend
Skirt: Lamp*Light - Sky Skirt (Recoloured to make it darker by me!)
Pose: Starry Heaven - Cocoa 4

Greased Up Pink Lady FLUX!

When I started blogging for FLUX again recently, I met a very, very lovely lady by the name of Mildread Gloom. She is a blogger, working on her creative outlet that is the Demented Dollies blog. Now Millie and I have crossed paths in blogging circles before, she and I work to cover similar events, and though I cannot work out for the life of me how we started chatting recently and how we missed talking to each other much in the past, but I am really glad we met... She like myself has a love of the depraved and somewhat dead side of the SL fashion world, and is really fun to talk to too! 
Now the reason behind this gush of sickly sweet talk about Millie is that, when FLUX started we got talking about the Pink Ladies due to the fact that Dead Dollz had released mesh Pink Ladies jackets as some of their items for the Americana Theme! We knew we had to do something with them... DUN DUN DUNNNNNNNNN it was time for an extra special collaborative post!
So the new modern, and somewhat depraved looking Pink Ladies rolled into town. We borrowed Grease Lightning from Kenickie and drove on over to the Pink Motel - home of this month's FLUX - for a spot of window shopping and watching the boys on their bikes ride by! 
As you may well notice though we aren't the conventional 50's Pink Ladies... Millie and I both - although seperately - dressed more to fit our own styles, and breathed a sigh of relief when we ended up both looking like we could be in the same Pink Ladies gang hehe... 
The Pink Motel is a really good backdrop for photography, but it will only be up until the end of the month when the theme for FLUX will change again... Set in the desert with a retro diner being it's only other friend, this place is truly like something in the middle of no where! The car that became our major prop is not at FLUX however, this is The Lightning and it comes straight out of Hell's store Hogs and Cart Wheels! Have to promote him where I can really don't I? He worked super hard on this car however, it comes with all the important aspects of the Greased Lightning that was danced on by Danny Zuko when the car was in the garage - including fluffy dice! 
I've also been a little cheeky here and made a twofer post! A few weeks back Berry set us a Meme about asking a friend questions... Well I picked a new friend lol - Millie was put in the hotseat... 20 Questions Time Millie!

Favourite Colour? hmmm, this is actually kinda tricky for me. It used to be purely red when I was younger, but now more and more its black, with a lil bit of red or purple thrown in- which you can plainly see from my blog!

Favourite Smell? kind of a weird one this, but with my RL job being a nurse, my favourite smell is diprobase cream!!! haha, I just love using this
Morning Person or Night Time Fiend? definitely a night time fiend! I am NOT a morning person, at ALL, lol
Necklaces, Rings or Bracelets? In RL, bracelets. I find rings too heavy and restricting - just don't like wearing them, and necklaces get break too easily- usually by the kids pulling in them! lol Though I dont tend to wear a lot of jewellery in RL, which I guess also shows in my blog as I rarely wear jewellery in SL too.
Rain or Sunshine? Sunshine. I hate the rain. Not a very goth thing for me to admit to, but yeah I prefer lazing in the sun!
What do you love most about SL? Being able to express myself freely through SL fashion and my blog.
Favourite Food? all of it!! haha, I've always been a foodie.
When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to be a police officer, or an archaeologist, but I'm too short for the police (I'm 4" 11 in RL!), and couldn't do archaeology due to family commitments
How did you find out about SL? Randomly, it was talked about on the British breakfast TV show "This Morning".
Sweet or Savory? sweet. Definately a sweet tooth.
What place on earth would you most like to visit? New York... I dunno, I've always had a weird kind of fascination with the USA, I'd love to visit! 
Have you met anyone in SL who inspires you? yes, I meet people who inspire me in SL in different ways all the time, I'd be too embarrassed to name names though *blushes*
Name three things that you love about SL... shopping, the fact that I can wear whatever I like without worrying about whether it will fit/ look good on me and  making friends and the sense of community I feel in SL.
If your house was on fire what personal possession would you have to go back in for? this is tricky, but I would have to say the autographed slipknot photo that my hubby got me a couple of years ago :)
Besides Blogging what do you like to do in you SL time? I don't get a whole lot of spare SL time, but when I do, I like to hang out with friends :)
How much wood, would a wood chuck chuck, if a wood chuck could chuck wood? ... (Lol seems I totally stumped her on this question LOL sorry Millie!)
Favourite Season? Summer! Prolly cus we don't get a whole lot of sunshine here, so I love it when we do

What don't you like about SL? it lags wayyyy too much on my crappy, olllld computer
What is your favourite sandwich filling? tuna mayonnaise, yum :P
What came first the Chicken or the Egg? the chicken? lol

Seeing as this is a special Grease themed post...
Favourite Grease song? *coughs a lil embarrassed* I actually cant stand the music in Grease!! That prolly has something to do with my lil sister constantly playing the video-tape over and over when we were little :/

Danny or Kenickie? Kenickie

There is a new bi-weekly event running for those of us with the somewhat depraved, somewhat rebellious and somewhat deviant people out there... The Total Anarchy Event will fill all your wardrobe with the darker and more deviant things that you never knew you needed! 
This look started out as one thing and then it kinda evolved into another. I pulled on this shirt with these pants from The Little Bat, but as slapped on the face paint courtesy of PixyStix but it struck me as a kinda laid back demonness... A look for a young demonness on a Saturday night hehe... I had to add some horns and this adorable bracelet that Cute Poison has released for SL Fashion Week
I wandered around in this outfit, getting some strange looks from some of the members of the SL Biker community, but to be honest, when you look this cute, how can you expect people not to look LOL!

Pretty New Piercings!

I love the store Cute Poison... I have done since I stumbled upon it a good few months ago now... Yet for the last few weeks the store has been somewhat on the quiet side as far as releases go... This may be due to a store renovation - though I wouldn't like to say for sure - or simply due to the fact that Sae Luan - Cute Poison's own genius designer - has been busily working her butt off to bring us a landslide of awesome new creations!
SO... I have much to show you in the next few days - or maybe weeks depending on whether my blogging mojo actually keeps working...
The first few items that I haven't taken off since I got them have to be some of the piercings...As a lover of piercings - though I wear them more in SL than in RL because ya know needles in RL yuck! - I am always on the look out for my new staple piercing, the one I wear all day everyday and then only change it after 6 months or so.
These new piercings though made me squeak with excitement... They are mesh and come complete with huds for easy recolouring of every part of the piercing. The Cosmos Piercing - the star on my collar bone - as an example has a HUD that allows for colouring the different rows of stones individually - i.e. the middle stone then the middle circle and the outer circle - as well as metal colours in the same way that the gems can be re-coloured! I love having this freedom to play around with the colours and make the piercings fit my outfit!
There will be more Cute Poison stuff shown off soon, I just needed to share my two favourite bits so far hehe...

What is she wearing;
Hair: Magika - Nine
Skin: Sugar - Cry My Heart Out Skin in tone 3

A Mid-Week Scare for a Monday Meme

*** WARNING ***
If you don't like Clowns, look away NOW!

This week's Monday Meme from Strawberry Singh is all about the haunted and the scary... I will admit that I had a bit of a trouble thinking what I was gonna do with this... There are a few things that might be scary to some are kinda regular everyday wear for me... I can usually be seen wandering around as a zombie or with some very nasty looking facial wounds.Though there are things that scare me which would definitely not be seen as a normal horror - least I'd imagine that to be the case... 
As weird as it sounds and I honestly never thought that I would go public with this, but I am more than a little scared of Aliens - something I don't hide but putting it out there publicly is kinda strange! 
So there was NO WAY in heck that I could photograph myself as an Alien... No way in Hell! I needed something else, something that creeped me out but not enough that I would be too terrified to even look at myself... 
CLOWNS fit that bill... I don't like clowns.They are freaky and creepy and evil, but some people love them so I guess they are like marmite - you either love them or hate them! I wouldn't say I hate them but at the same time they do freak me out so that was why I chose them as my horror for this week's Meme... I hope people don't hate me for using a Clown, trust me it was hard to get dressed up like this and shoot myself too...
As a wide man once said "Apparently clowns kill!" - Nuff Said!

Some MishMish Fairy Magic!

Collabor88 started again yesterday... On the 8th of every month, this much anticipated event kicks into gear and brings us a collection that I will admit I can either love or hate. Sometimes I find heaps of stuff that I simply MUST have and other times it seems like I find myself saying "hmm I like that but I don't know if I wanna own it!" 
This month, I haven't been in yet, I plan on it but am waiting for the initial hubbub - such a good word that - to die down. However, Miss Aime Takaaki of MishMish has created something so freaking adorable that I simply couldn't wait till I was able to get into the event space to be able to show it off!
FAIRIES! Yes ladies and gents she created these adorable fairies! It's like she is reaching into my brain and making everything that I want and cannot live without LOL... The Fairies come in three different colours - this being the blue version called Girosham, there are pink and green varieties too - and each fairy has a HUD to work the sparkly wand particles and wings... They are so freaking cute I am going to have one following me everywhere for a while now! They also come with a little surprise, you can see this in my photo but I'm not gonna say anymore about it hehe...
Another thing that I have to mention in this photo is the Bananana BATMAN top from Sugar's latest line of Titty Tops... There are so many adorable ones that I am sure I will be wearing more in the future, but this one just screamed wear me... How could I refuse I mean it's BATMAN!!!

Rudh and her Sad Teddy

This week I decided that it was time for a new profile photo... Normally I would hop into my Fairy Bob Mother's naughty box and poke her shouting  "OI" like a spoilt brat until she stopped whatever it was she was doing and had to shoot me - with a camera, not with a gun, though I'm guessing the gun might have been more useful lol - but as I've been trying to improve my photography for a while I realised that I should try to do something myself.
Now personally I find profile picture making very daunting. I mean I know people read my ramblings and therefore see my pictures, but here I think of us as bunch of people all learning and working together to try their hands at photography. In the SL world itself, a profile photo can mean a heck of a difference between whether someone will talk to you or not... I personally try to talk to everyone and anyone - if they seem interested in chatting - and although I am a self confessed profile perv, sometimes an interesting picture is more likely to get me chatting at you!
So I pulled out a teddy and sat in a pose, drying his little teddy tears... I just love this photo, so a new profile picture it is...

Hair: Exile - Midnight in Paris in Sunset
Skin: Sugar - Avril in Rockin Ruby

SL DisneyBound - Week 17

Last week's character - or should I say characters - was hard... I wanted two different characters with one similar look in one photograph and although it turned out well, I'm not sure that I would say it is one of my best! This week I was worried about for an entirely different reason... HOW WAS I GONNA LOOK LIKE AN ELEPHANT?? 
Week 17 - Dumbo!
Yes that's right ladies and gents, this week we head to the Circus to find that lovable baby elephant with the over-sized ears and the mousey best friend! This story is one that melts the heart and definitely gets me crying EVERY time I watch it, as a tale of finding strength to overcome your bullies, as well as not choosing your friends because of what they are but the way they treat you! OH and the song by the crows... How freaking catchy is that LOL... 
So for my look I was torn... Mostly between an idea that might have been seen too much as cheating and doing some major digging in my warehouse... The cheating option would have been easiest, simply slipping into a pair of PJs from Intrigue Co, but that wasn't going to work for me. SL DisneyBounding is all about representing a character not using a cop-out pre-existing costume, ya know? I had to do some digging... 
I found this overly large, wrinkled shirt dress from La Petite Fleur that kind of reminded me of an elephants wrinkled skin, but then what... I cautiously typed Elephant into the inventory search bar - cautiously because you never know what will fall out - and one of the first things to land in my lap was this AWESOME ears and nose set from -RC-! As soon as I pulled them on, I was in hysterics... I have no idea when I bought these or why, but all I can say is thank goodness I had them stashed away! All I needed now was the hat and the ruffle - well I'm not keen on hats so bye bye to that idea - but the ruffle - or something like it anyway - was a necessary. I searched and searched finding nothing, until I suddenly remembered this hair from Wasabi Pills with a scarf that can be coloured via a HUD... I think this red and yellow scarf may well have something to do with a certain Wizard's School colour themes but for now it works well as Dumbo's scarf... Don't ya think?

What is she wearing;
Hair: Wasabi Pills - Brrree Mesh Hair in Ash
Skin: Sugar - Chloe in Summer Lovin' 
Ears & Trunk: -RC- - Elephant Thingies (No Longer Available!)
Dress: La Petite Fleur - UnB Tshirts in Gray (Past Free Gift!)

Pants: [[>CaKe!<]] - Leather Pants in Grey
Pose: [!ZOOM] Posing Artistry - Balloon (Re-coloured by me!)

Some July 4th Americana caused by a FLUX

Aside from the wishing you a happy holiday to all the Americans out there, I have some VERY exciting news to share. One of my favourite events to cover during the days that I worked for Seraphim was the monthly shopping event FLUX. The reason that I loved this event was due to the crazy themes that would come up month after month - they have had some brilliant themes including taxidermy!!! They closed down for a while a good few months ago now, but TODAY sees the start of a brand new FLUX outing!!! YAY!!! 
The theme for this month's first FLUX is Americana, and so the designers have gone all out and thrown the red, white and blue all over the place. I dug through the hoard of things, stashing a few special goodies aside for a special post later - winks at Millie - but I found my favourite bits and bobs and created two special Americana looks... If you want details of these items then you will need to check the notes below, but the setting of FLUX itself - with its retro Americana feel - is a place that you really will want to check out. A great backdrop for photography and a pretty place to just look at - the beauty of this event is that the setting will change to match every theme...  Things will never be the same twice!!!
Just a little information about FLUX though - ya know the boringish stuff - the event runs every month for the whole month aside from the last few days to allow for change over! This month has only just started, but I am already bursting with excitement to see what the next month will bring!!!

SL DisneyBound - Week 16

So OK I am late with my Disney again... This character should have been out last week but I seriously lost my Mojo for a while back there and let myself get caught up in some other stuff - mostly drama from within the Biker MC world, sometimes I long for the days of peace and quiet when I was working alone on my blog and not having to think about what other people were doing too much LOL...
This week's was another twofer - by twofer I mean two characters for the price of one so to speak - yet there was something about the fact it was two people that I kind of let control my brain into panic mode and spent time worrying how I was going to pull this character set off... Then like lightning it hit me - I've done similar before - why not make two characters on one look... They are almost same anyhow!
Week 16 - Anastasia and Drizella (from Cinderella)!
So the ugly step sisters are up this week - to be honest I always thought that rather than ugly, Disney made them unfortunate looking LOL they aren't exactly ugly... Fact if anything they seem more like slightly exaggerated "normal" women when you compare them with the overly feminised and glamourous princesses. Plus they also have some really funny facial expressions... Gotta love a girl who doesn't have a problem pulling funny faces hehe...
So for the look of both Anastasia and Drizella, I knew I wanted something to match - they match in the Disney movie version - so with that in th eback of my mind and thoughts of pink and green I began digging. Finding something that I had in both colours proved to be challenging, I dug down deep and found these tops from Paper.Doll that I think were a past group gift, and an oldie but goodie skirt from Sn@tch with some cute new hair I bought in the Magika sale and two different but strinking accessories in the ladies respective colours and TADAAAAA... Ugly Step Sisters that aren't so ugly hehe...
