Keeping Watch

This next A Clockwork Spiral post was inspired by the Steam Outlaw outfit from The Little Bat. I accessorized the look with the smoke stacks adornment from Songbird, currently available at ACS, and decided to wear this adorable new skin from la petite mortes' fantasy range. I don't often wear fantasy type skins, but when I saw this one by la petite morte, I couldn't resist it. All together, the final look made me think of rebels during a historic battle, not part of any official army, but focussed on their own mission directives, perhaps on an alien planet not disimilair to Earth.

The Show Must Go On!

So, sometimes I go mad taking blog photos, because I love an outfit so much, and just have so much FUN playing around with poses that I snap and snap and snap, and then I realise that I have a TON of photos to go through and chose, what I think, show the outfit off the best. This is what happened today when I tried on a recent release by adoness, which was out for District 5 and should now be available in store. This amazing dress, brought to my mind images of performers (obviously), and I wanted somewhere my doll could perform. In the end, I found this cute lil area within AZ Doll Creations shop, that worked perfectly. Instead of performing, she was getting ready to go on stage... checking her hair and outfit in the mirror, making sure everything was perfect.



Satisifed, she did a lil twirl in front of the mirror, but her knees caught in the brutal wiring of her skirt, causing them to bleed!



However, she realised, the show must go on no matter what! So, she quickly practised a few pieces of her routine while she still had time.



She didn't have time for nerves, because before she knew it... it was time to head out onto the stage! She adjusted her skirts and lifted her head up high, determined to put on a show that would never be forgt, despite her clumsiness! there was NO way she was gonna let her under-study take this night from her. Her knees were cut, that was all, she could still dance!




And, for your benefit, here is a close-up image of her nails, and other accessories.

skin: la petite morte ~ india ~ t1 ~ the raven (currently available at The Secret Affair),
eyes: pmd ~ vibrant eyes ~ red,

Ice Bucket Challenge!

So, as you are surely aware, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has been taking social media by storm, and if you haven't done it by now, you surely at least KNOW someone who has! I have been nominated to so this challenge, both in RL, and now in SL, by my dear friend Rudhmellowen! I haven't managed to do it in RL yet, as I haven't been feeling well and didn't fancy the idea of making it worse by dumping a bucketful of freezing cold water over my head, lol. Anyways, I have accepted Rudh's SL challenge instead, although Millie wasn't too happy about it!! And, yes, I HAVE donated to the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MND is what we in the UK call ALS).

Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a progressive wasting disease that affects the messages that are sent by the nerves in the brain and spinal cord.This means messages gradually stop reaching muscles, which leads to weakness, wasting and disability. It can affect how you talk, eat, drink, walk and breathe. There is currently no known cure for MND, and it is vastly misunderstood and under-funded in terms of research.

So, without further ado, here are MY nominations; Guen Gothly, GiaNikai Juliesse and Ghost Mannequin... do it! :)




~body~
skin: la petite morte ~ india~ t1,
eyes: dead apples ~ sinsitre ~ bloodlust,
hair: truth ~ clover,
lips: riel ~ Spinder ~ Ruby,
tattoo: vestigium ~ lady Muerta,

I'm baaaaaaack!!!

After what seems like a reaaaaalllly long break, due to RL, I am back!! Got a new computer system today, which takes better SL pictures than the one I had borrowed temporarily, but still not as good as I'm used to. Still, I think, for now, they will do, and I will save up/ look into getting a new graphics card as soon as funds are available :) Thank you to everyone for your patience, both readers and sponsors alike. Here's my first post, just to say 'hiiii', I don't think theres anything particularly new in this (other than the hair and skin), but I wanted to start with a cute look from my inventory, and as its Delirium Sols' (Dizzy Kit from DRBC) rezz day tomorrow, I figured I'd show you one of my favourite outfits from her! Oh, I nearly forgot, the shoes are new from DRBC and are currently available at Suicide Dollz :D
