~ Lord Byron, “Darkness”
One of the things I enjoy doing most in Second Life is wandering around and exploring different sims. When I saw a link in someone’s profile (yes, I am an avid profile reader) to a sim based on the Silent Hill video game franchise, I simply had to go and check it out. Upon arriving at the sim, you are given a flashlight and told to have fun exploring…so that is exactly what Loxys and I did! The air was thick and hazy with smoke, and I was half expecting Pyramid Head or another creepy monster from the game series to pop out at me.
It felt like an especially appropriate place to take today’s photos at, considering that I am channeling a plagued fae. The skin and eyes I am wearing are from Stargazer Creations’ “Plagued” skin set. There are multiple makeups and skins included, with cleavage options for the Linden avatar and Omega/Slink appliers to cover most mesh bodies out there. One of the biggest variants between the skins is the presence or absence of plague-like rot and decay. The “Pure” option forgoes this and is a very lovely horror skin with light veining and the “Plagued” skin has the full monty – blackened hands and plague spots abound! I was inspired to wear the “Plagued” version since I was in such a creepy place, and it definitely worked with my surroundings. Right now, you can pick it up from Horror Haute for only 200L, which is a massive discount from the normal price. If you’re seeking a spooky skin that is very original, you really need to get to Horror Haute and pick one up. There are a variety of other horror skins from Stargazer available as well, so if it’s not to your taste, I am sure there is something else that will be. My hair is from Olive, and I really love the way the base colour and streak work with each other on this style. The “villain streak” really looks amazing, especially how it meets the black in the ponytail.
Recently, I discovered the amazing joy of fitmesh meant to fit specific mesh bodies. Usually, I am perfectly fine with adjusting my shape to fit in “normal” mesh clothing, but after trying on the corset I blogged in my last post that has a size specifically made for Belleza, I was very impressed. This doesn’t mean I am going to abandon normal mesh altogether, but it is a very nice option to have in my wardrobe, especially when I am feeling a bit lazy and don’t wish to adjust my shape. The dress I am wearing id from :::insanya:: and has fitmesh versions for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, TMP, and Sking plus sizes for Linden bodies. I love how it clings to and showcases my curves without crossing the line into being overly provocative. You can purchase it at The Black Dot Project Event, so if you are interested in snagging one for yourself, head over there. When I was walking through Project Limited again to see what I had missed, I noticed this great pendant of a claw holding a gemstone sphere. I’m not sure how I missed it my first time around, but needless to say, I was super happy to have discovered it and bought two colour packs! As of right now, there are still colours available, but I am sure they won’t last too long, so pop by Project Limited and grab, grab, grab, darklings! The gloves are from Roawenwood and can be picked up for 100L at this month’s Genre. Topping everything off is my Moon Bastet + Kitty Infusion tattoo from antielle. It’s a combination of adorable and sass that adds a nice dichotomy to an edgier outfit. My boots are from Reign and were previously blogged here.
