Slumber On.

I dream of you to wake; would that I might Dream of you and not wake but slumber on.

– Christina Rossetti

Let sleeping bunnies and fawns lay, animals are the most precious when sleeping. Thanks to Sol Existence for the lovely decorated sim. If you join their group, you can rez here.

This round of Enchantment is the most apples I’ve seen in SL in a long while. That and fancy glass coffins but I have yet to be encased. 😉 The event has only been open for 5 days and yet I feel like it’s already been two weeks! So many good items, such little time! I want to freeze all these creations in time on my blog to gaze back at again later on. 😀

By the way, did I not pick out like the best picture to gaze upon sleeping forest critters? That’s Foxcity for ya, always having versatile poses. Now if they’ll just release some fun action poses. ;3 I’ll be in the house to use weapons lol. Wishing you happy shoppiong. ♥

A Golden Opportunity.

Don’t gain the world and lose your soul; wisdom is better than silver or gold.

– Bob Marley

Floating above your head, ever so high. A golden opportunity has just arrived. Reach out and grab one, don’t be shy. Now blow off the dust, go ahead take a bite… [made up by moi, ty ty. lol]

As the opening of Enchantment draws near, be prepared for a flock of Snow Whites to grace your presence. Me being me, I had to try and be different soooome way and -00- definitely helped me with that. With a baby doll dress version of Snow White I decided to leave the relaxer at home! And pull out the stick on mesh nails of Snow White and create… this little number I do not have a name for. lol Ta-da!

Many thanks are in order to LUMIPro for their fabulous lighting system. The windlight sun would peek through the leaves of the tree but just couldn’t lighten me up enough in the shadows. So if you try to take a picture under many big trees, don’t be afraid to use a lighting system to give a ‘natural light’ to yourself. Hope that little hack is helpful.

A big thank you to Storybrooke Garden for their beautiful enchanted forest. Was just what Snow White ordered to make a bunch of falling golden apples come to life. ♥

I’ve been digging into my inventory lately, finding all old things and seeing if they have an update for it. Came across my cybernetic eye that I use to loooove shooting people with. Seriously, feeling like a one eye cyclops is like a comic nerd’s dream. Then watching Underworld and various movies that surprisingly have at least one character with changing eye colors; I didn’t want to detach it. X3 When you look at it far away it’s striking isn’t it? Like having one lycan eye. XD Ok enough showing my geek colors.

This whole set in the PocketGacha is giving me life though. I didn’t know whether to feel like the rainy blues or take a trip to the future. Sooo I decided to do both, I mean why else would I have a cybernetic heart? XD I had to get the old one replaced, memory was full. Wishing you happy shopping. ♥

So, yesterday was the two year anniversary of me starting the Kaleidoscope blog.
Today, I decided that I'm going to try and use this as what it is. MY blog.
For a long time, I've avoided writing much here, purely because I have a tendency to blurt, rant, overthink and then hate everything I write and in reality, I can't imagine anyone actually wanting to read a bunch of Pickle nonsense. However - here we go. No doubt those who come for informative fashion advice will just scroll right past this and that's just peachy, you do you, Boo.
Today I wanted to introduce you properly to my alt, Paloma. She's been featuring fairly regularly here and I feel like she needs a name to her face!
I've never really had a problem with alts, unless they're shady. People I care about are aware of the fact I use alts (yes, multiples of) and why I chose to use them. For me, Paloma is my sanctuary, so opening up and sharing her with you is actually a big deal. (Also, how do you describe your alts? I mean, they're all me, so should I still refer to her as "Her" or "Me"? I'm going with "Her", because I'm "Me, Pickle" here. Now I'm even more confused, because I'm never not me...)
For a long time, I sat on my platform as Pickle, and didn't explore beyond the few 'regular' sims I'd very rarely visit. My SL had become more and more enclosed and it was difficult for me to branch out due to meeting the 'wrong' types of people and feeling trapped, bitter and jaded by the negative I'd experienced. 
Paloma has actually opened up a few doors for me. Thanks to the feeling of freedom I experienced on her, I've developed entirely new relationships with people I would never have found without that free feeling. I'm in a much happier SL place, and although I still have days where i'm "meh" about all the things, I also have more days where I'm more likely to be "Hey, it's almost like I fit here!" again. I'm involving myself in activities I never thought I'd try, and through those activities, i'm meeting even more new and wonderful people. I'm no longer wastefully spending my SL time standing like a statue  
I've even met a man that doesn't appear to be a complete dick (at the moment! I hope you read this, Jer!) and I'm so sickeningly contented, I sometimes annoy myself.

So what's the purpose of Paloma in terms of Kaleidoscope? Well, as I've been spending a little more time on her lately, I didn't want to forget about my passion for blogging. So I dress her up, and naturally want to show her off. Because of the freedom I feel being on her, she's become slightly more alternative than Pickle, and I feel like showing the products I love in a different way will only serve to benefit the readers/information seekers more. I hope you enjoy her, as much as I do!

Before I run off and squirrel about everything that has been rolling around in my head for - well, forever - , I want to thank you all for reading/checking out my blog up until now. I am genuinely, completely in awe of the support, likes, shares, positive words and constructive criticism that I have received. It is a piece of me. It is entirely mine. It is a place I have used continually to explore creativity, push my boundaries and explore who I am, and having others to share it with is beyond amazing. I will thoroughly encourage this to anyone who just wants to document the process of growing in ANY field. It's wonderful to look back and be able to see an improvement.

I never know how to stop writing once I start, but I guess you came here for goodies, so... here they are!

It’s Your Birthright


It's that time of year when all sorts of fun is to be had. Such as the hunts and games now open. One in particular that opened yesterday is the Birthright Game by Pulse Games Oct 19-31. The hud is $50L to purchase and there are SOOOOOOO many prizes to be found which are all FREE. While you try to solve the mystery of your dearly departed uncle's death, you are taken on a tour of all of these different famous murderers. Most frightening aspect is that they were all REAL people. You get a bit of a history lesson on them, while hoping they don't make you the next victim. While you are following clues, you are also searching for rats, which are the free prizes. At the landing spot are lots of fantastic booths by the sponsors with exclusives, gachas and discounts for you which you can purchase before or after you finish the game. So, on with the post, here's a bit of a preview for you, so off to New Orleans we go!


  Feeling a bit nervous, might have you in tears. but this great skin and hair will help you feel so much better!

The lovely skin is Lima, created by 7 Deadly s[K]ins. It is a Omega applier based skin modeled after the LAQ bento mesh heads. It is available in 2 different skin boxes, tanned/dark or pale/light skins each with 6 skin tones. Also available for purchase is a special promo box with Lima in drow tone for only $50L in time for Halloween. There is also a shape available for purchase as well. These are all exclusively on sale at Dark Style Fair 5- Day of the Dead edition Oct 14-Nov 4 I am wearing the cashew tone from Box 2 in this picture.
 Mesh body parts worn:
LAQ Trinity mesh head
Maitreya Lara Body 4.1
Vista Animations Bento Prohands V2


 Sn@tch has some great specials this week, including the style I am wearing. Sookie comes in an All Color Pack and in 2 sizes as one of the Riot Board items. It's a great time to bring along all your friends and grab this great hair for a low price.



Stopping in at the Voodoo shop, you meet this creepy chick who seems to be a bit "off" Maybe even insane. Should you trust her? Only you can make that decision Do be sure to look about at all the strange and interesting things with each stop in the game, hunting for clues and having the sound on as well will help you solve this mystery.


The Little Bat has some great prizes for us in the Birthright Game, including these Pumpkin Lips/Grey with appliers for Catwa, Lelutka and Omega, and Katya Nose Chain which is resize scripted and includes a 12 color hud.

The eyes that I am wearing are part of a gacha collection by LOTUS. These are called Haitian eyes 06. They include mesh eyes as well as a Catwa applier.

fri.day created these cute Bea Heels (Bats). They are for Maitreya High Feet and include optional socks in 4 colors. Totally cute for the battiest of us.


 Sn@tch has another item on the Riot boards this week. The Peppa Velvet Corset Skirt is a mesh skirt which includes 7 sizes and 16 color hud. Another sale item is the Clara Slightly Sheer Crop Sweater that comes in system layers as well as including an Omega appliers in 10 colors. It's only $50L this week for Sn@tch-n-Grab.


Dark Passions designed these amazing Witchy Ways II nails for Maitreya, Omega and Slink nails. They come with 10 textures in 5 patterns and 2 colors. They are an exclusive for Season Of The Witch Oct 14 - Nov 4, 2017
