embers of a raging fire

The Santa Rosa fire caused devastation, taking the homes and properties of so many.  Kerryth at Spyralle turned the tragedy of the destruction of the Coffey Park neighbourhood to art in Ignis, a beautiful gown for the Trick or Treat Lane event, in memory of all the joys that lived there.  You can find it at Trick or Treat Lane, but only for a limited time!

There are three beautiful textures, but Ember matched my fiery curls just right.

All Hallow’s is past, but Trick or Treat Lane goes on until November 3rd.  Don’t miss out on this fiery beauty!

Aloha!  A hui hou!


Death and all her friends

Some music, because Whit taught me.  🙂   Will I lose friends for Coldplay?

I know, it’s already all Hallow’s on the far side of the world, but in Europe and the Americas we’re still in the Eve!  Happy Hallowe’en, my lovely friends!  How about a little gift from G Field today?  The wonderful Roodvosje shared Death Girl in her lovely post last week, and I fell so in love with it that I had to share it with you in my own way!

Black is tough to wear — I had to weave special darke magicks about it to keep the white powder sugar that falls from my donuts from showing against it… but the cloak has such a lovely deep crimson lining and beautiful buckle detail!

A quick note about the hood.  Like hats, hoods are tricky, only moreso.  G Field did a fantastic job in leaving enough hair space around the skull, so I was able to find something.  I love Analog Dog, and Val fit very nicely.  I had to do a little editing on some of the strands on the back of my head — you can edit, and go into “edit linked” mode and shrink those pesky pokers and move them individually.  I did a larger piece on this a year or so ago, it’s tricky work but not bad.  FIRST FIRST FIRST, always make a copy of the hair!  The hair will always look horrid when you take the hood off, so you want to work with a copy!

I’m so totally in love with this dress and cloak that I think I’ll keep it about.. for whenever I need to show my darke side.

Happy Hallowe’en everyone!  Mahalo — a hui hou!



Fallen goddess

The mist hangs close to your skin, a cool shiver runs down your spine that had nothing to do with the cold.  You look around furtively, and there — framed in the glow of the streetlight, regal and shining in silver and black… one who walks as if she owns these streets…

Okay, I confess — I am NOT a fan of hats in SL.  Even when they’re pretty, they…. just don’t work very well.  But then sometimes the perfect outfit just pops into existence for you.  When I found Silvan Moon Designs‘ new exclusive dress for the Fallen Gods Decennial, I knew that Spyralle‘s Breakfast in Vegas would make quite the statement.

The monsters were out, all right… but she was the one to be wary of.

Mahalo!  A hui hou!


Dark skies and darker looks

One of my favourite DJs in Eden has started hosting a new montly (or so) Goth event, “Cravin’ the Raven”, and I put together a great new outfit for the occasion.  I assembled this from some wonderful creators to create a look that really suits a dangerous mood.

Exposeur Props and Poses — February Gift 15-3 pose (Marketplace Link)

Have fun experimenting out there…. just… take a friend or two along with you.  This place looks a bit on the creepy side….

Mahalo!  A hui hou!


A Darker Witch

Perhaps I just have a bit of an affinity for witches.   🙂

Today’s is a lovely special from your favourite steampunk supplier, Pixel Box.  Halloween Stuff Witch comes in four dark shades, and you know that I had to take a look at the green one!


  • Pixel BoxHalloween Stuff – Witch Green (top, skirt, boots, hat, broom)
  • REIGN — Tattoo Choker Necklace (“Deathly” and “Spellbound”)
  • //elephante poses//Rose #2


REIGN offers this beautiful little mesh choker in three varieties.   While the name is “Tattoo”, it’s not a tattoo, it is a lovely little bit of mesh!   I’ve shown both below — “Spellbound” with a pentacle charm, “Deathly” featuring the Deathly Hallows.  I can’t decide which I like best, but each comes in black, gold, and silver.  And best yet, all three metals for each of the two charms is included for one lovely little price!

And whatever you do, don’t blink.


Unsurprisingly, Pixel Box also offers an accessory kit that will give this gothy beauty a steampunk bent.  It’s definitely worth checking out!

Mahalo!  A hui hou!
