Yesterday, I took my final exams for this semester. I am so relieved that they are over and I did well…only three more classes to go, and I am finally finished! That’s the reason I didn’t post yesterday. Real Life® is always first, my darklings!
The Vampire Chronicles officially opened today, and there are tons of amazing items for sale! If you have a penchant for the macabre, dark, and spooky, I highly recommend that you check it out. The event is being hosted by the same creative team behind Spooky Cute, and they are doing an amazing job! I put on my BlutEngel playlist and as the strains of “Bloody Pleasures” drifted to my ears, I began my descent into the world of the creatures of the night. As a fair warning, my outdoor pictures were still taken using Nam’s Optimal Skin and Prim…meaning my vampire is a daywalker! I am working on taking pictures using different windlight settings and lights, but they’re still not really good enough yet to put on my blog. My skills are improving, but I am a perfectionist and I want everything to look just right before I put it out here on the internet.
My lovely gown is from Stargazer creations. The top is on a texture layer, and has included Omega/Slink appliers so it is wearable with most mesh bodies. I love the rich velvet texture and the sumptuous brocade both on the bodice and mesh skirt. As with all Stargazer Creations’ items, the textures are beautiful and the dress creates a striking look for roleplay, special occasions, and even just hanging around the grid. I am also wearing shoes from Stargazer Creations, but you cannot see them in any of the poses. I promise I will blog them before this event is over, because they are very pretty and deserve to be seen! My long beaded ankh necklace is from Maxi Gossamer, and my bracers are from Pixel Box Creations. I mentioned them in my previous post and gotta say…they really do some great stuff and many of their items have spaces that you can put your own textures into. I chose some of my favourite pictures of me and Cinder and I love the personal touch they provide. The ring I have on my right hand is a new release at ImmateriA and is a very spooky claw resting on top of an incredibly detailed filigree. It looks absolutely wonderful, and if you are a fan of unique jewelry, I highly recommend picking one up!
The skin I have on is from the Vampire Avatar Set by Stargazer Creations. It includes ten skins, appliers for Omega/Slink, eyes, and a hair. The makeup options are beautiful and include a few with blood dripping from the lips, as if you’ve just finished feeding. I couldn’t resist wearing one of the bloody makeups to take pictures! The shading on the skin is marvelously done, and the tone is pallid and definitely undead-looking without falling into the trap that so many vampire skins do of looking incredibly pale and washed out. I honestly have to say that this is the best vampire skin I have seen on the grid, hands down. My hair is from Beusy and is made to work with the floral crown I have on, which comes in a fatpack and is available for purchase separately.
The Vampire Chronicles runs until the 9th, and as I said, there are some amazing deals that you simply shouldn’t pass up. There are even things for the gents available! What are you waiting for? Get there and get shopping!
